es in Week
Cagers, Puckmen Will See Action Twice;
Matmen Entertain Northwestern Saturday
Michigan athletic teams are in
for a busy time during the next
week with five major Western Con-
ference collisions on the schedule
which will see the basketball and
hockey teams in action twice and
the wrestlers once.
En route home from the Min-
nesota game at Minneapolis, Coach
Ozzie Cowles' basketball squad will
appear Monday evening in a re-
match with Northwestern Univer-
sity at Evanston, Ill. Next Satur-
day night the Wolverines square
off with Purdue at Yost Field
House for their second conference
clash of the week.
Wildcats Lose Key Men
Against Northwestern the Wol-
verines rate a fair chance of re-
leating their Jan. 4 performance
here in which they scored a 39-31
upset. The chance will depend on
how much the Wildcats miss for-
ward Bill Stricklen and reserve
guards Bob Hughes and Bob Mac-
taggert, who were declared schol-
Michigan, on the other hand,
may be handicapped if Gerritt

Faces a busy week
during which he was top scorer
with 11 points.
Purdue Rates High
Although Michigan ranked one
notch above the seventh-place
Purdue quintet in last year's Big
Nine standings, Coach Mel
Taube's Boilermakers have a re-
turned veteran personnel that is
highly regarded in the league.
Coach Vic Heyliger's hockey
team will face off against its ma-
jor conference rival, Minnesota, in
the first of a four-game series Fri-
day and Saturday nights. A two-
game return match is booked at
Minneapolis Feb. 14 and 15.
Michigan Has Unofficial Title
Inasmuch as Minnesota and
Michigan this season sport the
only two conference hockey clubs,
outcome of their battles deter-
mines the unofficial Big Nine
championship. Last year Michi-
gan won two,-tied ope and lost one
in the Gopher series to snatch the,

wrestling Coach Cliff Keen's
squad will entertain Northwest-
ern's wrestlers, following the Pur-
due Michigan basketball game.

Leaves were not the only things
turned over for the New Year.
The Yost Field House running
track underwent a 14-day face-
lifting and emerged with a new
In the first major recondi-
tioning since the track was built,
an entire new surface was laid.
Some two inches of the old top
side were remo-ved to clear way
for a batch of new and springier
cinders. Generations of Michi-
gan thinclads had long since
pounded the original layer into
Two carloads of a special high-
class "North Shore" cinders were
imported for the job. Advertised
as an "activated ash" for better
bounce and longerstrides, it was
not quite up to snuff. It all had
to be sifted, and by the time they
task was finished only one car-
load of usable material was left.
Undoubtedly the high clinker
count can be attributed to at-
tempts at coal scimping.
The track team's reaction to
the new course is varied. One
caught the general attitude by
a "Soft Shoulder" sign posted
on the back stretch. The reno-
vated surface is a trifle flabby,
and while the lads don't exactly
do a soft-shoe shuffle around
the turns they do manage a
The bed of the track, under-
neath the new layer is sound,
however, so things should im-
prove. As every runner knows, a
firm foundation is essential to a.
good curve. A little time and a
few tons of pressure ought to do
The only unusual result of
the present mealy surface was
a thrown shoe by quarter-miler
George Shepherd. As he plowed
around the last turn at a recent
practice, the suction proved too
great for his loosely-tied spikes.
His might shoe pulled off with a
squish, but a wide-awake spec-
tator snatched it from the
whirling wake before it disap-
peared from sight. Shepherd
finished the race with a unilue
But all in all, the Wolverine
trackmen are showing up well
as mudders. The splattering is
taken right in stride, with the
runner in the rear getting a little
extra in the eye. They wink out
a couple of specks of dirt, button
their spats, and prepare for the
sedimental journey. Here's mud
