Teams All Absor Defeats

Beat Leafs, 6-4
In Final Period
TORONTO, Jan. 15.-(IP)- The
Toronto Maple Leafs squandered
their offensive strength early tonight
and when the Leafs tired in the last
10 minutes of play, the Detroit Red
Wings struck for four goals and a
6-4 National Hockey League victory
before 12,335 fans.
The Leafs, striving to close the 12-
point gap separating them from the
league-leading Montreal Canadiens,
built up a 4-2 margin midway
through the third period and ap-
peared on the way to their fourth
straight victory. But Murray Arm-
strong beat Paul Bibeault from close
range at 11:46 to set off a four-goal
explosion which sealed the verdict
for the fourth-place Red Wings.
Less than a minute later Adam
Brown connected on a goal-mouth
scrimmage to knot the count 4-4.
Then Syd Howe crossed in front of
the Toronto defense on a solo rush.

Smith showed his championship

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Jan. 15.-(I)-
Purdue's Boilermakers bagged their
fourth straight Western Conference
triumph tonight by stifling an un-
der-manned Minnesota quintet, 43 to
The victory was even more con-
vincing than Purdue's 51-38 triumph
over the Gophers last night. Ward
Lambert's charges took command at
the outset and picked up momentum
throughout, racing into a 21-10 lead
at halftime.
Charlie Haag, sophomore guard,
assumed the scoring responsibilities
for Purdue when the visitors stymied
high-scoring Bill Lodge to a single
field goal. Haag's 16 points was high
for contest.
Purdue's defense, slightly spotty
last night, was the highlight of to-
night's tilt.

State University defeated Indiana
University's youthful basketball team
for the second straight time tonight,
before 2,024 fans, tacking a 74 to 38

the Bucks beat Indiana 72 to 46.
Don Grate of Greenfield, first
sophomore cage r-aptain in Ohio his-
tory, paced the Bucks with 27 points,
giving him 48 for his pair of Big Ten
starts. He led the teams last night
with 21.

won its second Conference basketball
'game in four starts tonight, over-
whelming the University of Chicago
69 to 32 for the Maroons' 43rd con-
secutive Big Ten defeat.
Paced by Stan Patrick, who scored
17 points for high honors, the Illini
pulled away midway in the first
half after Chicago had shown sur-
prising strength early in the game.
At halftime Illinois led 40 to 20.

Delta Theta Whites, 92-25, yesterday
afternoon at the Sports Building to
highlight the opening game in the
I-M All-Campus basketball tourna-

In Victory Golf Tourney
The former National Open and P.
G.A. champion from Toledo, O.,
marched around the long, flat Hard-
ing Park course in 69 shots, one stroke
more than his yesterday's low score
but sufficient to enable him to pull
away from the fast field.

perts . who watched the Michigan
AAU Swimming Championships were
not unfounded in their praise of the
Wolverine swimmers. With Mert
Church, Chuck Fries, Heini Kessler
and John McCarthy as team main-
stays, Coach Mann's squad will prove
to be tough competition for all oppo-
nents this year.
BRejackets Win
Track Contest
Placing in every event, a strong
Navy squad won the All-Servicemen's
track meet at the Yost field house
yesterday afternoon with a total of
661/2 points.
The Marines captured second place
with 3534 points and the Army
wound up third, netting themselves
2834 points. The 'leathernecks' cap-
tured four first places, but failed to
cash in on seconds and thirds. The
Army took two firsts, with Art Up-
ton, last year's varsity man, winning
the 440-yard dash in 54:00, and Tur-
ner taking the broad jump with a
leap of 21'9%".
Salter Runs Thriller
Salter, who was running for the
Marines in the 880, provided the
most thrilling race of the day, when
he overcame a 20-yard lead in the
last lap to win by two yards. Caspari,
a Marine hurdle ace, was the only
double winner of the day, when he
won both the low and high 60-yard
Although the Navy had the meet
cinched, the mile relay, the last
event, was a hard fought battle, but
after the lead had changed hands
several times, Fred Negus, last fall's
varsity center, stepped out in the lead
to bring the baton home for the

MADISON, Jan. 15.-(P)-Wiscon-
sin's basketball team tonight handed
Michigan its second defeat in 24
hours, downing the Wolverines 42 to
31 with a determined second half
spurt before a season-record crowd
of 10,500.
The Badgers, who triumphed in
the first game of their series last
night, 50 to 41, got away slowly in
the decisive second period after leav-
ing the floor at the intermission on
the short end of a 19-18 count. They
muffed numerous chances on fault
passing, but after breaking a 23-23
tie gradually pulled away.
Wisconsin in Big Ten Race
The victory, their third in five
starts, put Wisconsin back into the
thick of the Big Ten race. It was
Michigan's third loss in four Con-
ference games.I
Although Ray Patterson, BadgerI
center, was high scorer with 16
points, which raised his series total
to 35, he relinquished the spotlight
to a larger extent in the second per-
iod to guard Russ Wendland who tal-
lied 11 and also shone on defense by
holding Tom King, Michigan's sharp
shooting forward, scoreless.
Strack Paces Varsity
Forward Dave Strack paced the
Wolverine attack with 11 points, but
it was Elroy Hirsch, former Wiscon-
sin football star, who received the
spectators' acclaim as he grabbed
one rebound after another and fed
his "adopted" team mates the ball.
Hirsch made only five points, in con-
trast to last night's 11.

Taking the lead early in the se-
cend period and increasing it more
and more as time went on, Wood-
stock Army Base hockey team stop-
ped Michigan's winning streak at one
last night, conquering the Wolver-
ines, 6-1, in a game that seemed
ready to break into riot proportions
Sat any moment.
The game was one of the roughest
played here in the last three years,
11 penalties being called on both
teams. But at only one time did act-
ual fighting come near flaring out,
than coming with only four minutes
r(maining in the game when Gord
Lee. the Woodstock goalie, was in-
jured in a scramble near the nets,
and Phil Vitale, Woodstock defense-
man, and Michigan's captain Bob
Deilch started to square off.
Lee has Cut Fixed
Peace prevailed, however, , as the
game was held up ten minutes while
Lee retired to the dressing room to
have his cut mouth fixed, then com-
ing back to finish up the game. Lee
wasn't the only casualty, though.
Bob Henderson, who played a bang-
up game at defense for Michigan all
naht. caught a skate with his fore-
head near the end of the first period,
but he too continued to play, after
first stopping at the bench for first
From the start of the second per-
iod on, the Canadians completely
outclassed Coach Eddie Lowrey's
charges. using their superior speed
to the best of its advantage. Only in
the first stanza, when each team
scored once, id the Wolverines man-
age to match the power of their op-
ponents. They did break away sev-
eral times later, going on goal all
alone, only to have Lee, who stole
the night's show, come up with beau-
tiful saves.
Woodstock played the game wear-
ing the Wolverine practice jersies,

having left theirs at home after
some mixup about which car they
were in.
Canadians in Varsity Jersies
The Woodstock players began put-
ting on the pressure midway in the
second period. Sparky Weiler took a
'pass from Bill 'Upwaird ta beat Dick
Mixer, and put the Canadians in the
lead. Ten with Al Roy of the Can-
adians, and Bob Hlendlerson and Art
Upton of the Wolveirines cooling off
in the penalty box, Dick Schnurr
made it 3-1, on a solo goal. Phil Vi-
tale scored the third goal of the
period at 17:50 on a breakaway while
one of his own teammates was oif for
high-s ticking.
The last Woodstock goal, and their
second of the final period, was a shot
by Paul Drouin from the blue-line
that traveled through a maze of
players and hit the corner of the nets
past a start led Mixer.
