a rejuv-

soundly whipped the Fingal RCAF
team for 8-0 for their second victory
of~ the season.
Both Ted Greer and Vince Abbey
racked up three goals with Abbey as-
sisting in another score. It was Ab-
by who started things going at 3:12
in the first period, as he slammed the
puck past the first Fingal goalie from
niear the right boards on a pass from
Johnny Jenswold. Jack Athens was
the next goal-getter for Michigan,
plushing in a rebound from Captain
Aeb Derleth at 11:34.
'ingal started the second period
with a, new goalie in their net. This
move had little effect on the local
laHs. -owever, it did take them over
half the period to get on to Steve

Ted Greer broke away for the third
Wolverine goal, netting the puck at

,Y-one seconds later Abbey made it
4-O with his second score of the eve-
ning. A perfect three way passing
01ay at 19:43, Jenswold to Abbey to
Greer, resulted in Greer scoring his
seCnd goal.
Again it was Greer who was on the
receiving end of a pass from Abbey
at 2:08 of the third period as he
scored his final goal of the evening
on a sizzling shot from close in.

Two other contracts, those of Coach

season got the final goal, tipping the
puck in from a scramble around the
Fingal net.
The Canadian boys played hard all
evening but they looked weak as far
as team play went and their defense

Mixer Stars at Net
Michigan's goalie, Dick Mixer,
played a stellar game in the nets as
he turned in his first shutout of the
season. Mixer, however, had the help
of fine defense play by Tom Messin-
ger and Henderson, both of these
boys played the entire sixty minutes.
Passing plays by the Wolverines
were executed with teamwork that
was a far cry from last week's defeat
by Woodstock. Every player had
plenty of fight when needed.
Abbey, co-star of the game, played
his first game of the year and his
second for the Wolverines-this sea-
son, being home on furlough when

Are Michigan Wrestlers Too Good?
MICHIGAN'S 1944 wrestling squad, potentially one of the best in years
and an early season Conference favorite, has to be content with a
schedule of just THREE MATCHES and the Big Ten finals-either, a
tribute to the power that is synonymous with Michigan, a result of the
war, or a defect in the system of drawing up schedules at Chicago. No
wonder Coach Pay Courtright's greying hair is getting thin.
If Courtright looks worn out and frustrated, he has+ a right to be.
One Big Ten team has asked to be excused from its match with the
Wolverines. Other Conference schools say they lack the money, trans-
portation and facilities to come here. Navy teams have come right out
truthfully and declared, "No, Mr. Courtright, we don't want to meet
the Wolverines. They're too tough for us."
All was fairly under control early this month when Michigan invaded
Columbus and walloped Ohio State's matmen, 24-, in an exhibition of
power and form that was unusual for so early in the season. And then,
the trouble started. Northwestern, which had been scheduled for Ann
Arbor Feb. 5, excused itself for breaking the date, stating that a schedule
conflict had arisen, Purdue, slated for a match here yesterday, followed
suit. The Boilermakers, however, are .still a possibility.
As the schedule now stands, Michigan will travel to Indiana to
meet the Hoosiers Feb. 12 and will play hast to Minnesota here Feb. 5.
The Gopher match has not been definitely assured, although it has
been verbally agreed to. The Conference finals are slated for Feb. 19
at Evanston. And the season will be over approximately one month
after it began.
CORKY TRIED his best to schedule matches with non-Conference foes,
Navy Pier in Chicago and the Iowa Seahawks both said, "Sorry, you're
too tough for us." This after Michigan's crushing victory over the Buckeyes.
Wheaton College and Illinois Tech declined because of full schedules. Penn
State was too far away. What about Illinois, Chicago, Wisconsin?
Athletic Director Fritz Crisier had a nossible solution that would
be more to the- liking of these Big Ten schools than Michigan's grapplers
who have been conditioning themselves three months for a three-
match schedule.
Criser pointed out tihat Illinois, Purdue, Indiana, Chicago, North-
western, and Wisconsin are closer together and would rather schedule two
matches with each other than come all the way out to Ann Arbor. But
how about Michigan corning out and meeting them on their home mats?
What's the answer here?
fOFALL THE SPORTS sanctioned by Navy and Marine authorities as
suitable for conditioning of trainees, wrestling is unquestionably the
most effective. Billy Thom, veteran Indiana wrestling mentor and for-
mer Olymnic. mat coach, once said. that "individual initiative as re-
quired in wrestling makesitethe best sport preparation for military
service." And he ought to know.
"The wrestler," Thom said, "is on his own and so is the soldier or
marine in hand-to-hand fighting we have seen in the Pacific, in Italy, and
which we shall see in the European invasion." And for proof Thom cited
his 1933 National Intercollegiate eight-man Indiana team which has pro-
duced two lieutenant colonels, a major, a captain, and four lieutenants.
And so with each new letter or phone call telling Corky that there
are no more teams availalble, his boys grow desperate and their interest
wanes. A couple more poor schedules and Michigan will find good
material scarce. Good wrestlers want to wrestle competitively.

The Millrose Games are only two
weeks away but the Michigan middleI
distance men are realy for all com-
ers as evidenced by le fine showing
they made in yesterday's time trials.
Lcd by Bob Ufer, the prospective
two-mile relay team for the Millrose
Games Feb. 5. flashed around the
Field House track in excellent time.
Ufer was followed across the finish
line by John Roxborough, Bob Hume

and Dick Barnard. Ross Hune did1
not run in the half-mile trial as hie'
has had a slight knee injury this past
week, and has done no fast running.
Representatives Are Unknownz
At the present time it is unknownz
who actually will represent Michigan]
in the two-mile relay race. Last year
Michigan was represented by four
men, all of whom were able to break<
2 minutes in the half-mile. Evenc


then their victory was only by about
a yard and one-half. As the expected
competition this year will be just as
tough, Coach Doherty will have a
difficult time choosing his fastest
relay team, as Bob Ufer and Ross
Hume are expected to enter the spe-
cial 600-yard race and the mile, re-
spectively. It is even possible that
Coach Doherty will make no definite
decision until just before meet time.
