Bringing the 1945 hockey season to
an end last night, the Wolverine sex-j
tet dropped its final match of the
year 4-1 to the Middlesex and Huron
Regiment, a Canadian Army team
from London, Ont.
Last night's tilt was probably one
of the fastest games that Michigan
had played throughout the year.
Each period was characterized by
speedy passing, shooting, and skat-
ing and because of these factors both
squads displayed an extremely ag-
gressive spirit which made the game
an exciting and interesting contest.
It was also avery colorful match
due to the several fights which took
place on the ice during the tilt.
Greer Gets Tally
Captain Ted Greer, playing his
last hockey game for the Maize anl
Blue, scored Michigan's only goal at
15:55 of the opening period, but
previous to this the Canadian sextet
had marked up two points. Ted In-
glis, with an assist from Gordon Col-
lins, and Jack Schnarr, unassisted,
broke through the Michigan defense
GIVE! to the lED CROSS

to score for the visitors. The initial
stanza closed with Coach Vic Hey-I
liger's charges behind 2-1.
The Wolverine team tried vainly
to capture the lead, but it was to no
avail and before the second period
ended Middlesex increased its lead
when Inglis again crashed through
Michigan's net to make the score at
the end of the period 3-1 in favor of
the London squad.
Rally Fails
Michigan's pucksters came out
fighting in the third stanza and tried
to capture the lead and win the game
which would have given them a .500
average for the season; but the only
scoring, in the last twenty minutes
of play, was when Schnarr put the
disk through the Wolverine defense
to make the final goal of the game.
This was the final puck match for
three members of the Wolverine sex-
tet; besides Greer, it was also the
last time that Bob Lilienfield and
Bob Graham donned a hockey uni-
form for the Maize and Blue sextet.
Also participating in the final
match of the year was goalie Dick
Mixer, defensemen Herb Upton and
Paul Groth, wing Fred Lounsberry,
and centers Carl Sulentich, and
Francis Allman. John Jenswold, vet-
eran of the 1945 squad, missed the
contest due to an injury he received
in Friday's game with Vickers.

CHICAGO, Mar. 10.--The Western

$5,000 more than Griffith was paid,
but salary terms were not disclosed
by the faculty group, whose action
capped a three-month search for a
successor to the first and only prev-.

CHICAGO, Ill., March 9-Michi-
gan's victorious track squad barely
won their sixteenth Conference In-
door track title tonight in the Chi-
cago Stadium, when they squeezed
past a strong Illinois team by one
point, 55 1/10-54 1/10.
The final point totals behind Mich-
igan and Illinois were: Minnesota,
21?2; Ohio State, 171/2; Purdue,3
11 1110; Indiana, 82; Iowa 7 15;
Wisconsin, 6; and Northwestern and
Chicago, 0.
Wolverines Build Lead
Michigan built up a large lead
early in the meet as the Hume twins,
Bob and Ross, led the Wolverines to
a clean sweep in the mile run and
12 of 15 possible points in the two-
Coach Ken Doherty's crew failed
to score another first, but the closing
1 events found the Champaign boys
lacking in seconds and thirds. A
good example of Michigan's tradi-
tional team balance which has
brought them such honors on the
cinderpaths, was in the half-mile
run, which although won by Bob
Kelly of Illinois, saw four Wolverines
follow, for a total of ten points.
Kelly Wins 440
Kelly won Oie 440 by six inches
from Dick Forreste, Wolverine vet-
eran, as the two swept past the fad-
ing pace-setter, Wallace Desterhaft
of Purdue, in the stretch. Kelley wa';
clocked in 50.6 seconds, much slower
than the :49.3 that won last year for
Bob Ufer.
Bob Hume was dethroned as two-
mile champion, but the title re-
mained in the family when brother
Ross loped across in 9:45.4, edging
another teammate, Chuck Birdsall,
by inches. Bob started the race but
developed a stitch in his side and
was lapped by Ross.
