Hockey Team Preparing
For 21-Game Schedule
FOR THE. RECORD ...
By ARCHIE PARSONS, Daily Sports Staff
Throng To See
Describing it as one of the tough-
est schedules a school has ever faced,
Coach Vic Heyliger yesterday an-
nounced the 1946-47 hockey schedule.
Final details have not as yet been
completed, but the Wolverines have
a 21 game card (including contests
with leading college teams from both
the United States and Canada.
Among the more formidable oppon-
ents are California, Colorado Col-
lege, Dartmouth,rMinnesota, Toronto
and Queens. In addition Heyliger's
sextet will face several amateur On-
Wings Open Season
Marking the earliest beginning
date in Michigan history, the Wol-
verines will- open in spectacular
fashion by engaging the Detroit
Wings under Jack Adams in an ex-
hibition contest, November 26 at the
Highlighting the season will be
the jaunt to the Pacific Coast where
the Maize and Blue will tangle with
the Berkley's Golden Bears. On
route Heyliger's crew will meet the
Tigers from Colorado Springs. In
pre-war years the Californians
boasted one of the coast's most
powerful puck teams. Colorado
dropped a pair of games to Michigan
last year, but have an edge in a long
Toronto To Return
Toront's sextet-one of the great-
est college sextets of all time-will
be well remembered by Ann Arbor
fans. Ace Bailey's charges snapped
a twelve game winning streak and de-
feated the Wolverines four straight
last season. Queens University, of
Kingston, Ontario, plays in the same
league as does Toronto.
As always the Wolverines will meet
Minnesota in a four game, home-
and-home series. Last year the
Heyligermen won the mythical Big
Nine title by taking a pair from the
Gophers while losing one and gaining
Heyliger expects to begin practice
early next week.

THIS is by way of thanking the 150 students who had enough spirit in
them to turn out for the pep rally yesterday afternoon.
One question. Where were the other 18,650?
Spirit is a peculiar thing. When the team is "up" and winning,
everybody is behind them. "That's my team," they say. "I go to Michi-
gan." And they throw out their chests and beam.
When the team is not doing so well, it's not quite the same story.
"Sorry, old boy," they say, "Just couldn't make it down there yesterday.
You know how it is."
"The foolball team is the students' team." That was the cry when
the football seats were distributed. "How dare they put me in the end
zone? How dare they expect me to cheer for my team when I can't even
How many of those students were among those who lined State Street
yesterday, a sort of wan smile on the faces of some, actual disgust on the
faces of others?
We didn't realize that 18,650 students had such important things
to do at one time. So important that they couldn't give up one half
an hour to sing a few songs and yell just a bit for their own football
TWO WEEKS AGO, we got sick to our stomach when we read how the
students of Michigan State College had booed their players as they
left the field at the end of a losing game. We were sure it could never
happen here. It didn't. Michigan students didn't do anything. They just
stood and gaped.
Even the band, the Michigan Marching Band, couldn't spare a half
hour from their practice to march down State Street yesterday. We
didn't want their ru.niforms or their snappy marching. We just wanted
They could have practiced a half hour later last night. Some fellows
were able to get up an hour or so earlier to paint posters and put them
around the campus. Others could take a few minutes of their really precious
time on their radio programs to announce the rally and plead with the stu-
dents to turn out.
We hope the band is very good up there in Minneapolis Saturday. They
ought to be well-drilled and rested for the occasion.
We hear the echo of an old rationalization. It says, "This idea of
'the old college spirit' is out the window in these days. 'Do or Die' went
out with the Republicans. Students are older now. They don't go for
What about the Army game? Was that spirit or were we just trying to
If, by some chance, this team should win the Big Nine Champion-
ship, we wonder how many students will be cheering for their team
then? Gone will be the wan smiles and the disgusted looks. The band
will march and everybody will cheer and sing for that good old Michi-
One hundred fifty Michigan men and women should toss themselves a
party. Or maybe the football team will invite them to theirs. After all, they
surely wouldn't overcrowd the place.
A packed house will be on hand to-
morrow in Minneapolis where the
Wolverines and the Gophers will be
unleashed in their 37th annual fur-
clawing clash for the Little Brown
Jug. A determined collection of 36
Michigan gridders left yesterday eve-
ning, bound for the Northern strong-
hold of Minnesota's golden horde in
an effort to shake off their fumbling
slump and stage a come-back rally
in the Conference campaign.
After a week of strenuous scrim-
mage sessions, Coach Fritz Crisler and
his staff believe they have the Maize
and Blue back in fighting trim and
ready to show the gridiron world
what they can do. The daily work-
outs just completed have been some
of the hardest-hitting practices the,
Wolverine warriors have undergone
Michigan At Full Strength
Bob Wiese has recovered from the
bruising blow he received in the Illi-
nois fracas last Saturday and is
scheduled for full duty at his full-
Scramble for Brown Jug
Michigan, Gophers To Meet in 3711h Traditional Game;
Wolverines at Full Strength as Bob Wiese Recovers
back position. Reinforcing the spin-
ning back will be Jack Weisenburger
and Dan Dworsky.
A trio of the trickiest-stepping
runners in Big Nine circles is avail-
able for left half. Bob Chappuis will
probably get the starting nod on the
strength of his offensive record to
date, a 538-yard performance that
has put him on top of the Western
Conference ground-gaining list. Be-
hind him are Gene Derricotte, a
speedy open-field runner and one of
Michigan's best defensive backs, and
Bill Culligan, who was a mainstay in
the Wolverines' 1945 28-23 triumph
Right Halfs Plentiful
For right half Coach Crisler has
no end of talent to choose from. Paul
White, Bumps Elliott, Ralph Chubb,
and Henry Fonde are all making the
trip, a quartet of ball-carriers to
worry any opposing defense. Howard
Yerges is first choice once again for
quarterback, backed up ably by Pete
Elliott and Bob Vernier.
Six ends are traveling to Minneap-
olis, including Captain Art Renner,
Ed Bahlow, Len Ford, Elmer Madar,
Bob Mann, and Ed McNeill. Tackles
going are Bob Ballou, Jack Carpen-
ter, Fenwick Crane, Bob Derleth,
Bruce Hilkene, and Bill Pritula.
George Burg, George Kraeger,
Quentin Sickels, Joe Sobeliski, Stu
Wilkins, and Dom Tomasi are going
along to fill the guard positions,
while Jim Brieske, Bob Callahan, J.
T. White, and Harold Watts are the

Buzz at Spartan
Wally Weber will take the "B's"
from Michigan's gridiron hive to East
Lansing tomorrow to do battle with
Michigan State's unbeaten yearlings.
The little Spartans boast the im-
pressive record of rolling up 131
points to 13 for the opposition which
included Notre Dame, Central Michi-
gan and Wayne (twice). The Wol-
verines are conceding nothing how-
ever having lost only to Indiana
while clipping Marquette, Wayne and
Grand Rapids Junior College.
Wayne affords the only basis of
comparison. The Maize and Blue
snowed the Tartars under a 46-0
touchdown avalanche in Michigan's
opener but the Spartans accorded
the Motor City eleven equally rough
hospitality by spanking them 50-0
This is the first in a home and
home series which will wind up at
Ferry Field on November 9. All un-
finished business resulting from to-
morrow's game will be taken care of
then in what are "the" games on the
schedules of both teams.

mural tennis tournament.
