Amnateurs o1 Weekentd
Michigan's hockey team, defeated
twice over the weekend by the Uni-
versity of Toronto, took a well-earned
rest yesterday and reflected that from
here on in it should find the road
a little easier.
Shutting out the Michigan sextet,
4-0, Saturday, the Blues scored a
gaal early in the second period and
then took to the defensive. Michigan
had control of the puck for the great-
er part of the first two periods, but
as hashbeen the case in many con-
tests this year, the squad couldn't
click in front of the net.
Third Period Rally
In the final period, with the Wolv-
erines desperately trying to tie the
count, Toronto crashed the Michigan
defense for three more goals. -
Both teams were handicapped by
injuries. Al Renfrew, playing with
his wrist in a cast, saw little action
for Michigan, while Dave Bauer and
Ed. Kryzanowski were also out of
action for Toronto.
In losing to the Blues, the Wolv-
erines played as good hockey as they
have played this season, But Toronto,
undefeated in 11 games against col-
lege opponents this season, had too
much power for the Michigan aggre-f
gation. In the two contests played
in Ann Arbor and in the second game
at Toronto, the Maize and Blues bat-
tled on even terms for two periods,
only to go down to defeat before a
withering barrage of Toronto goals.
In the past four week's the Wolv-
erines met the Toronto crew four
times and also met Minnesota's Go-
phers in four contests. Coach Ace
Bailey's Blues were triumphant each
time, but not until the Maize and
Blue puckmen had extended them to
the limit.
Play Twice This Weekend
Against the Gophers the Wolver-
ines had better success, winning twice
in Ann Arbor and then clinching the
' Big Ten title in Minneapolis two
weeks later when the 'teams played
a three all tie. The Gophers upset
Vic Heyliger's crew in the final game.
With the season's big games out
of the way the Michigan puckmen
hope to again hit the victory trail.
Friday and Saturday at the Coliseum
they ,will meet Paris AC and Brant-
ford, both of whom are Ontario
amateur sextets. However, neither is
expected to furnish as strong oppo-
sition as that of Toronto,

By WALT KLEE .
After completely dominating thee
Michigan State relays last Saturday,
the Michigan track team has turned1
its eyes on the dual meet with Illi-
nois to be held here on Saturday, Feb.
23.
The annual relay carnival proved
once again that the Michigan team
has one of the most balanced aggre-
gations of thinclads in recent years,
although it failed to provide the Wol-
verines with any truly outstanding
individual stars.
Thomason Stars In Mile,
A large number of creditable per-
formances were turned in in almost'
all events, most notable being the;
mile run by Bob Thomason in the
distance medley relay. Thomason's
unofficial time for the mile was 4:24.
The return of Bob Hume to compe-I
tition raises once again the question;
of whether or not the Hume twins will
be able to compete this year. Previ-
ously it has been announced that the'
distance stars would not, because of,
an extra heavy scholastic burden.
Both have been out for practice oc-
casionally, but not as often as neces-I;
s ary to get them in shape for com-
petition.

the relay carnival were Horace Cole-
Naators Face
Gopher Squad
ere Saturday
With their fifth straight win of
the season safely tucked away, Mich-
igan's swimmers will play host to
Minnesota Saturday night at the
Sports Building pool.
The meet with the Gophers will be
the last outing for the Wolverines
before their vaction-time invasion of
Ohio State, Feb. 27. The Buckeye
clash had been originally slated for
Mar. 2 but was moved ahead to Feb.
27.
Gophers Boast Two Wins, One Loss
The Minnesota swimmers have a
two-and-one record for the season,
holding wins over Illinois, 45-39, and
Iowa State, 53-31. Their lone setback
came at the hands of Northwestern
in their season opener, 53-31. Mich-
igan defeated the Wildcats, 47-34.
Four lettermen and a couple of
war veterans hold the key to Minne-
sota's chances of whipping Coach
Matt Mann's crew Saturday. The let-
termen are Reynolds Jones, Mike
Besel, Bill Grey and John Hollings-
head. Roger Ahlman and Don Benson
are the ex-servicemen.
Jones took a fifth for the Gophers
in the Big Ten 50-yard freestyle race
last year. He has turned in a :25 for
that distance already this season.
Grey, Besel, Jones and Ahlman make
up the Minnesota 400-yard freestyle
relay team. Against Illinois the quar-
tet churned the distance in 3:45.2.
Hollingshead Swims itreast Stroke
Hollingshead is a breast stroker
who is on his own this year after
playing second fiddle to the Gopher's
ace breast stroker in 1945, Vern
Ojampa. Ahlman also swims back-
stroke for the Northmen. His best
time for the 150-yard distance this
year is 1:43.9.
The Minnesotans have a strong
team balance that may give the
Wolverines a little trouble. Against
the Illini they could only take five
firsts but still managed to salvage
45 points, enough to win handily. As
Gopher Coach Niels Thorpe put it,
"We're potentially strong."

man's anchor leg in the mile relay,
Church Low's victory in the 1000-
yard run, Chuck Birdsall's easy vic-
tory in the two mile, and Chuck
Lauritsen's surprise victory in the
pole vault.
Coleman ran a fast leg, fighting off
every bid made by Ohio State's Bill
Clifford, who made a valiant effort
for the Buckeyes. However, Coleman
kept up his pace and crossed the wire
pulling further ahead.
Low, Orfanedes In Thriller
Low also engaged in a thrilling dual
with a Buckeye, this time Steve Or-
fanedes, outstanding freshman. The
Wolverine jumped into the lead and
held it through the course of the race
by staving off several determined
bids,
Birdsall, a two-miler, is in a class
by himself. After running more than
a mile in stride with teammate Dean
Voegtlen, he began to put on speed
and finished the last three laps at
least 50 yards ahead of his nearest
competitor.
The pole vault provided the Wol-
verines with their most sta tling up-
set. Both Billy Mooare of Northwest-
ern and Ted Wo h e of Michigan
State were rated much better than
Lauritsen. Both had made jumps of
13 feet 6 inches and better before the
meet.
Yet when it came to clearing 13
feet in the Relays, both jumpers
failed, leaving Lauritsen with a vic-
tory that tied the meet record. To
add to the confusion, in practice af-
terwards, Moore set an unofficial
record when he cleared the bar at
13 feet 8 inches.
Over-all Strenghth Counts
Yet without any doubt it was the
over-all strength of all performers,
rather than any individual feats that
made possible the Wolverine per-
formance.
Elmer Swanson was upset in the
high hurdles, and Bob Swain lost his
second straight to Carl Baynard in
the dash. Swanson was not in the
best of shape for the meet, hampered
by muscle trouble.
Open Competition
On St. Louis Nine
ST. LOUIS, Feb. 11-(/P)-Every
job except shortstop is open in the
1946 starting lineup of the St. Louis
Browns, Manager Luke Sewell said
today.
"Vernon Stephens is the Browns
shortstop until somebody better
comes along," Sewell declared as he
made a short stopover here en route
to Anaheim, Calif., where the
Brownies will open training, Feb. 20
The only catch in that strategy i
that Stephens is a holdout-more 01
less.

By fRANK KEISER
It was sweet revenge for Michi-
gan's basketball squad last night
when they bounced back to lash a
visiting Wisconsin quintet, which,
downed them by one point a week
ago at Madison, with a run-away
66-56 defeat, on the Yost Field House
floor".
The absence of head cage coach
Bennie Oosterbaan had no apparent
effect on the scoring punch of the
Wolverines who, under thle direction
of assistant coaches Bill Barclay and
Ernie McCoy racked up 47 points to
Wisconsin's 30 at the end of the first
frame. In the process the Maize and
Blue five bettered the .500 mark hit-
ting the basket, sinking 21 of 41
shots attempted.
Badgers Rally in Second Period
Wisconsin staged a short-lived rally
in the second period, taking advant-
age of a momentary Wolverine slump,
but only managed to pull within 10
points of the leaders by the time
the final whistle blew.
P ete Etlliott, M1 ichigan's varsity
guard, led the individual scoring race
for both teams with a total of 21
points, on nine field goals and three
free throws. Teammate Dave Strack
was right on his heels with 16 mark-
ers, from seven goals and two charity
tcss'es. Wisconsin's star forward, Bob
Cook, who leads the Conference in
scor'ing, placed third with 14.
Fast and accurate shooting char-
acterized the first frame which saw

the Wolverines pile up one of their
highest half-time scores to date.
Wisconsin shot off to a four-point
lead on baskets by Exner Menzel and
George Rippe but free throws by Bob
Harrison and Glen Selbo, and lay-
ups by Strack and Selbo gave Mich-
igan a 6-4 advantage after 1% min-
utes of play.
By the time seven minutes had run
out the Maize and Blue led, 12-8. The
next three minutes of play saw the
score tied twice at 12 and 14 mark-
ers apiece, as the Badgers tallied on
shots by Cook, Rodgers and Rippe,
while Harrison came through for
Michigan.
The teams were deadlocked two
more times, at 16 and 18 counts each
in the first part of the initial period,
but the Wolverines jumped into the
lead after that, and were never ser-
iously threatened from there on in.
47-30 Score At Half
Three baskets by Elliott, who
chalked up 16 points in the first per-
iod, two by Strack, and one apaie
by Johzn Mullaney and Marty Fein-
berg made the scoreboard read 32-2
with six minutes remaining to half-
time. Wise, Rippe, Menzel, and Cook
hit tile basket with goals and free
throws for the Badgers in the re-
maining time to boost their total to
30, while Wolverines Elliott, Selbo,
and Strack engineered 15 points be-
tween them, to give Michigan 47
markers at halftime.
