y Gopher Pucksters Strong
v Dez Sez Farewell
By DES HOWARTH, Associate Sports Editor
THIS WEEK-END marks the highpoint in the season's warfare for
Coach Vic Heyliger and, his band of skaters, for the Wolverines meet
Minnesota's always big and bruising Gophers in a pair of games at
the local Coliseum.
We're not going out on a limb as to predicting the outcome -
although our sentiments naturally cause us to expect a Michigan
victory. We will make one prediction, however, and that is that the
series will measure up to the usual expectations of action-packed
rivalry. In other words there will be plenty of fireworks, come what
A glance at the Minneapolis papers only confirms this opin-
ion. The Gophers are said by those in the know, to have their
best outfit in the last half dozen years. And the Northmen have
most of the stalwarts who made things uncomfortable for the
Wolverines last season returning. And they have been strength-
ened considerably in the reserve department.
True goalie Duff McDermid-probably the best goal-tender in
collegiate circles last year-is no longer matriculating at Minneapolis,
but that doesn't worry Gopher fans. They now have Tommy Karakas,
brother of the National League's Mike, operating in the nets, and
Karakas has made them forget all about McDermid. Only last week
he made 53 saves against Winnipeg St. James, which is kicking them
out in any league.
The Minnesotans soundly trounced their Canadian neighbors in
their first match, 5-1 and then battled them to a tie in the second
game. Considering that the Winnipeg lads are about as good as they
come, this record certainly speaks well for Larry Armstrong's sextet.
Returning also are a trio of rugged defensemen including
Al Opsahl, Dick. Roberts, and Jack O'Brien, who will be counted
on to slow down the fast moving Wolverine attack again this year.
Two members of one of Minnesota's lines who will make their
appearance on Coliseum ice again are Jim Frick and Bob Flemming.
Bob Carley, the center of this line, will not start since he is still re-
covering from an eye injury which was received as a result of a flying
Imposing as Armstrong's array of talent would seem, the Wol-
verines can be expected to make their presence known. With the
exception of reserve strength in which the Gophers have an advantage,
the teams seem about evenly matched as a pair of identical twins.
Whether the reserve factor will prove important is a question. Still
the Wolverines have won five straight with just 11 men against some
pretty fair competition.
THIS being our final column, we think it only fitting that we pay
tribute to one of Michigan's least heralded but most ardent sports
fans. She is perhaps best known by the many athletes now on the!
campus or those who have graduated. Many "M" men will attest to
her help, encouragement, and loyalty to Michigan athletes.. The pic-
tures adorning the walls of her office are inscribed by her many
friends, Wistert, Kuzma, Harmon, White, Wakefield, Swanson, and a
host of others in appreciation of this loyalty. We're referring to the
proprietor of a certain store on State Street, Mrs. Florence Slater,
Michigan's most loyal fan.
And as a last word we should like to take this opportunity to sad=
so-long to our many friends and coaches who comprise the athletic
scene at Michigan and to Russ O'Brien, Ann Arbor's John Kiernan, for
his many helpful suggestions. It's been nice knowing you.
