Also Do 'Hat Trick'
By BILL MULLENDOIRE
Michigan's hockey team made itsj
1945 debut under tle direction of
new coach Vic Heyliger last night,
but the occasion was dulled some-
what when a hard-skating Vickers
Athletic Club sextet f ailed to co-
operate and left the ice with a 12-6
victory over the game but badly
Coach Heyliger's crew did have
one brief moment of triumph, how-
ever, surging into the lead midway
in the first period on two quick goals
by Ted Greer, center and team cap-
tain, after Eddie Robittaile had tal-
lied for Vickers. This 2-1 margin
was quickly wiped out as Al Hout
and Al Maniko slammed home goals
to lead 3-2 at the end of the firstj
Vickers Pulls Away$
Vickers widened its edge steadily
as the game progressed, counting
four markers in the second stanza
and five in the third. The 'Wolver-
ines managed two goals in each
period, as Greer and Johnny Jens-
wold, speedy left winger, divided
honors with three each to account
for all the Michigan scoring.
The Canadians dominated play
from the outset, keeping the puck
in Michigan ice most of the time.
Only some fancy goal tending by
Dick Mixer kept the Wolverine net
free until 'Robittaile's goal at 12:401
Greer knotted the score two min-I

The SLACKS come in grey,
broiwn, navy, and black flannels
and gabardines from $6.50 to
utes later, banging home a shot from
six feet out after taking a pass from
Fred Lounsberry. A minute and one-
half later Greer picked up a loose
puck at mid-rink and skated in on
goalie Ted Anderson all alone to
score and give the Wolverines a
Vickers came back quickly as Hout
lofted a long shot through a maze of
players clustered around the goal
mouth. Mixer did not see the puck
until after it had entered the net.
Seconds later a concerted drive gave
Vickers another goal as Maniko
slipped one in from the corner after
snagging a pass from Robittaile.
The second period saw Vickers
strike for two scores in the first five
minutes. Maniko got one on a re-
bound as Mixer was sprawled on the
ice from blocking another shot, and
Robittaile added the other, catching
a loose puck behind the Michigan net
and hatting it in.
Jenswold then tallied his first of
his trio of goals during a melee
around the Vickers net, but Carl
Kauppi matched it four minutes
later on a solo dash the length of the
ice. Vickers' next goal was a freak
affair as Wolverine defenseman Bob
Henderson inadvertently tipped in a
rebound off Carl Kauppi's stick.
Kauppi got credit for the.goal. Jens-
wold made it 7-4 with his second
goal, just a moment before the period
The final stanza started in a rush
as the Canadians added to their lead.
Ernie Kaneman scored first at :53
on a pass from Hout, and Maniko
counted his third goal of the night
just two minutes afterward. Hout
slammed in a rebound at 7:37 to
nmake it 10-4.
Greer Tallies Again
Greei' then made his second solo
dash of the evening to register his
third goal as hie out-skated two
Vickers players to the goal mouth,
but Robittaile matchegl it with an-
other, also his third, making him
the fourth man to complete the well-
known "hat trick."
BUY WAR BONDS,
AS THE BASKETBALL teams in the Big Ten began to wind up their
preliminary workouts in anticipation of their dual meets for the 1944- 1
45 season, pre-season dopesters figured that this year's Conference cham-
pionship would either be retained by Ohio State. or these laurels would
rest in Iowa City with the Hawkeyes.
This prediction is gaining momentum as the weeks slip by, but the
Iowa quintet his been more impressive than the Buckeyes to date, as they
have more than lived up to their name, "tie Hawkeyes", by averagingI
73 points per game in posting six non-Conference victories, and they?
met Minnesota last night in their first Big Ten competition.
Coach Lawrence "Pops" Harrison's Iowa cagers have scored im-
pressive wins over Western Illinois Teachers in their first game of the
year, and have registered successive wins over South Dakota State,
Nebraska, Denver, Notre Dame and Michigan State.
Dick Ives, who as a freshman last year, lead the Big Ten scoring
with 208 points, is again taking up where he left off last season, and
his 89 points thus far is tops in the Conference. In addition to taking
Conference scoring honors last year. Ives 327 points in M gaines set a
new Iowa record, while his 43 points against Chicago set an all-time Con-
ference high for scoring in a single game.
LAST YEAR'S SQUAD featured Ives and Dave Danner, whose 193 poin
enabled him to bag second place honors in the Big Ten scoring race,
but their support was not too good. This year Danner is not compet-
ing, but the return and added experience of co-captains Jack Spencer
and Ned Postels, both 6 ft., 3 in. tall, plus the Wilkinson brothers, Clayton.
and Herbert, who tower 6 ft., 4 in. in height and hail from the Univer-
sity of Utah, fills out what many observers believe will be the best squad
in Iowa history.
Although many writers are claiming that Iowa is displaying cham-j
pionship form, Coach Itarrison is reluctant to make any optimistic state-
ments and he relates that "there isn't a Conference coach who doesn't!
say, 'Boy, I'm glad that one's over." whenever he wins a game, no matter
who he has played."
This statement by Pops Harrison tends to indicate that Iowa is
going to take each opponent as they come, without any cockiness.
Along with this conservative attitude on the part of the genial coach,
their high scoring ace going full blast, and the fact that the Hawks
are blessed with scoring halance, as attested by the fact that only
five points separates the averages of the first five scorers, it looks
like a banner year for lowa.j
Pops nearly had the makings last year when he lost a share in the
Big Ten title by one point in the last 70 seconds of the final game of
the year. Poos consoled his boys with a "Cheer up-there'll be another
year." And from the looks of things this is the year, so if any other
club has any title aspirations, they had better set their sights on this
high-powered outfit from Iowa City.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Jan. 6-After
tossing the lead back and forth nearly
as rapidly as they did the ball, tllie
University of Michigan tonight took
the measure of the University of Illi-
nois in the latter's Western Confer-
ence opener, 43-38.
Don Lund of Michigan, with 13,
was high scorer of the game, but iti
was Walton Kirk, Jr., of Mt. Vernon,
Ill.. who took more bouquets as high
scorer of the Illini, with 11 points. !
Kirk was not expected to play be-
cause of a sprained ankle, but he
stayed in the game a total of 381
minutes, and made four goals and
three free throws.
The encounter between two major,
contenders for the Conference cham-
pionship was, amazingly rough, Mi-
chigan taking 18 personal fouls and
Illinois 16, many of them double
The first quarter see-sawed with
Michigan leading at the end of nine
minutes, 10 to 7. Illinois rallied at
16-all and took the lead then 17 to
16 on a free throw by Jack Bur-
master of Erin, Ill., who had been
