Returning to their home ice
after a successful Western tour
during the Christmas vacation,
the Michigan hockey team, will
face the Queens University ag-
gregation in the first of a two-
game series tonight at 8 p.m. in
the Coliseum.
The Wolverines won three
contests while dropping one to
Colorado to bring their record
up to five games won and four
defeats. Since tonight's encoun-
ter is the midway game of the
season, the pucksters will try
to keep well on the black side
of the ledger.
Coach Vic Heyliger is depend-
ing upon the much stronger de-
fense that showed up so well
against Colorado and the Cali-
fornia teams to pull the pucksters
through victoriously tonight.
Jack MacDonald's work in the
nets greatly improved since the
last time that the Maize and
Blue spectators saw him per-
form. He was a potent factor
in Michigan's trio of triumphs.
It was MacDonald's pass to de-
fenseman George Balestri that
produced the only tally in Mich-
igan's 1-4 victory over the
Olympic Club of San Francisco.

It is quite a rare occasion in
hockey that a goal tender is
given an assist on a scoring play.
In a move to further strengthen
the defense, Coach Heyliger has
moved Al Renfrew up to the first
line in the left wing slot. He will
team up with the two high scor-
ers of the squad, center Gordie
MacMillan and right winger Os-
sie Phillips. Both of these stick-
men have 17 points, but Phillips

cards when they purchase their
tickets.
leads the team with 10 goals while
MacMillan tops the squad with
11 assists. Renfrew is third man
in scoring, so this, line should
give Queens' goalie Dave Wood
quite a busy evening.
The number two line will see
Bill Jacobson at center, Dick
Starrak at left wing, and Ted
Greer in his usual right wing
slot. Center George Peugeot
and wing Sam Steadman round
out the available forwards for
tonight's tilt.
George Balestri, who was a
great spark to the team in the
last two weeks, and always re-
liable captain Connie Hill will be
one pair on defense, while big
Bob Marshall and Herb Upton
will form the other duo on de-
fense. Of course, MacDonald will
tend the goal.
The visitors from Kingston,
Ontario, are coached by George
Patterson, who played hockey
in the NHL with Toronto, Mon-
treal, Boston, the old New York
Americans, and Detroit. He was
a member of the Red Wing team
that won the Stanley Cup in
1936.
Queens will be led on the ice
by center and captain Jerry Wa-
gar. Michigan fans will remember
Wagar when he played for Mc-
Master U. here last year and
scored four goals against the
Maize and Blue. Playing at left
wing on Wagar's line will be Henry
Coupe, who formerly played for
the Illini before he went into ser-
vice. While competing for Illi-
nois, Coupe was coached by Coach
Heyliger, Michigan's p r e s e n t
mentor.
Wood, Queens' netminder, is the
holder of the Senator Powell
trophy, awarded annually to the
most valuable player on the squad.

Meet Mr, Harrison
From forward to guard in a se-
ries of not-so-easy lessons is the
story of Bob Harrison, high scor-
ing guard who boasts the most
playing time in a Wolverine bas-
ketball suit despite being the
youngest memo ber on the starting
squad.
Under the tutelage of Coach Oz-
zie Cowles, Harrison has been con-
verted from the forward spot were
he scored 110 points last season
to place second in team honors
and 15th in the Big Nine, into an
all around performer who special-
izes in rebounds. "I'd rather hold
my man down than score," says
the Toledo sophomore, but his
14 points in the Stanford game
proves he still knows how.
Harrison came here from Wood-
ward High School where he cap-
tained the quintet while grabbing
all-state honors two years run-
ning. He also lettered as a half-
miler and shot putter on the track
squad and as center on the grid
squad.
Along with his love of basket-
ball goes his fondness for bananas.
Sometime durlug the day before
every game, "Bananas" Harrison
manages to down two or three of
Chaquita's favorite fruit. Once,
while the Woodward squad was on
its way to the state champion-
ships, Harrison had the bus driver
stop at a grocery store where he
purchased some. He ate twelve
before the first game and dropped
in twelve points, the next day he
consumed two dozen and chalked
up twenty-four points. It is ru-
mored that a supply for the entire
season has been deposited next to
the refrigerator in the Sigma Chi
house.
