Greer Scores Both
Goals for Michigan
Scoring three goals in the first
period and six in each of the last
two stanzas, University of Minne-
sota's hockey team followed up its
earlier 10-0 triumph over Michigan's
puck squad last night by turning
back the Wolverines, 15-2 . at the
The issue was never in doubt
from the outset as the Gophers
jumped into an early lead and
steadily increased it as time went
on. Most of the play was in Michi-
gan ice with the yellow-shirted
Gophers continually storming the
Wolverine goal-mouth.
Michigan's two goals were scored
by Ted Greer, ace left winger. The
first came at 10:03 of the second pe-
riod when Greer picked up a loose
puck at center ice, eluded two de-
fensemen and skated in on Minne-
sota goalie Bob McCabe, catching
the corner of the net with his shot.
Greer's second tally occurred on a
similar play at 18:29 of the final
period with Michigan behind, 13-1.
The Gophers drew first blood at
3:44 when Paul Wild lofted a long
shot from the blue line which caught
the corner of the net. After a furious
Michigan counterattack featured by
phenomenal goal tending by McCabe,
James Wild made it 2-0 at 15:56
when he backhanded a rebound past
Wolverine goalie Dick Mixer. Less
than a minute later Bill Klatt con-
cluded the scoring for the period as

Bob Graiziger ran the count to 6-0
at 7:01 on a rebound, and Bob Carley
made it 7-0 a minute and one-half
later as he shagged the puck behind
the Michigan net, swept around from
the side. and backhanded it ito the
corne .
At this point Greer tallied his first
marker, but Klatt quickly got it back
40 seconds later. Klatt's shot was
wide of the net, but Karl Sulentich,
Wolverine center, got his stick in the
way and tipped it in. Preston Thomp-
son ended the scoring for the period
at 13:40 on a backhander from eight
feet out.
The third period was almost a
repetition cf the second. Michigan
put on another early spurt when
two Gophers were sent off the ice
on penalties, but Graiziger got the
1 ll roll ing - at 6:02, and Tames
Wild added another at 10:00.
Minnesota's next goal resulted
from a scramble aiound the Wolver-
ine net in which Michigan defense-
man Bob Henderson suffered a scalp
wound rrona flying skate. Thomp-
son got credit for the goal. .
Carley then went on a spree of his
own, cashing in for Minnesota's last
three goals. Greer got his second
tally after Carley pounded home No.
1, but the rugged Gopher defense-
man was not to be denied as he came
back for two more. The last one
sailed into the net one second before
the final whistle.
The game was characterized by
fast, rough play with eight penalties
being called, six on Minnesota, and
several near fights being staged. The
Gophers' domination of the proceed-
ings was reflected in the number of
saves for each goal tender. Mixer
turned back 58 shots, while McCabe
was called upon fpr only 21 stops.

was too powerful for him to block
the Gophers' kills at the net.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3-Baseball
appeared today to be caught in a
squeeze play where it may have to
turn squarely to Jimmy Byrnes for a
way out.
With limited national service legis-
lation well along the road to enact-
ment, many of the game's moguls
felt that government assistance has
become imperative if the game is to
continue in 1945.
Bill's Passage Brings Fear
This bill affects approximately
8,000,000 men from 18 to 45, and its
passage would bring nearly to real-
ization baseball's gravest fears . .
that enough players to round out
teams will not be available.
