(Special to The Daily)
Vic Heyliger's Michigan hockey
team blew into the Windy City
Arena last night seeking their first
win against Toronto University
since the ten game series was ii-
tiated in 1935, and before the eve-
ning had ended, the Wolverines
wrote off their mission as success-
ful, winning a magnificently
played contest, 3-2.
Proceeds of the game went to
the Mercy Hospital charity fund
for the proposed Mercy Hospital
to be built in Chicago.
All the scoring was done in
the first two periods, with Mich-
igan picking up its first two
markers in the initial stanza.
Although the final frame was
conspicuous by its lack of goals
and penalties, some of the finest
hockey ever turned out by Maize
and Blue squads was played. Vet-
eran goalie, Jack McDonald bril-
liantly staved off serious Toronto
scoring threats time and time
again in the last period to hold
Michigan's edge secure.
Captain Connie Hill was pre-
sented with the William Thomp-
son Mercy Hospital Building
Trophy at the close of the con-
test in appreciation of the Michi-
gan aid in the Chicago charity
Michigan began the evening's
festivities at 7:03 when Al Ren-
frew stole the puck just over the
Maize and Blue blue line, out-
raced one, defenseman, and shot
a sizzling drive past Don Saun-
ders, veteran Toronto net-tend- C

nesday night at Al Skalsey, of the
Splits, turned in she year's high
series, 631.
The Splits ran away with their
match with the Gamma Deltas
and racked up a convincing 4 to
0 victory. Skalsey stole the show,
however, with his high series
which included games of 231, 189,
and 211.
The Strikers looked weak in de-
feating the Lawyers 4 to 0, but
were fortunate in that the Law-
yers were even weaker.

at center ice. Jacobson put on
a burst of speed and outraced
the Toronto defenders to the
blue line. Ted Greer followed
Jacobson over the line, signalled
for a pass, took the accurate
flip and beat Saunders with a
high, hard drive at 11:50.
The Toronto team was not to
be denied, however, and three
minutes later it roared back to
score its first goal of the evening.
Michigan's pilot, Vic Heyliger,
disputed the score claiming that
his defensive team was not on
the ice when the score was tallied.
Bill Henry, second line center,
netted the goal on a short pass
from Don Bark at 14:40 when
he slid the puck past XcDon-
ald's stick.
Both teams picked up another
goal in the second frame, a pe-
riod highlighted by six penalties.
At 4:11 the Wolverines rustled
the nets for the last time in the
game when Wally Gacek, who
continued his record of scoring at
least one goal a game, took a pass,
from Hill in front of the cage and,
after an abbreviated scramble
around the crease, slammed the
puck in for the score.
With a few seconds remain-
ing in the second period, Cecil
Turcott drove a high shot into
the upper right hand corner of
the net for Toronto's second
and last goal. McDonald never
had a chance to stop the shot.

Spikes were flying at Yost Field
House last night as Michigan's
1948 track team held its first
intra-squad meet of the current
Highlight of the evening was
the quarter mile which developed
into a duel between Herb Barten,
Michigan's Conference half mile
champ, and Val Johnson. Barten
led for the first 350 yards but
gave way to a final burst of speed
by Johnson.
Winning Time Good
The winning time was 50.3 sec-
onds, phenomenal for this early
in the season. Barten was clocked
at 50.7 seconds.
Another stellar performance of
the evening was Freshman Jim
Mitchell's official record-equalling

in order to get in shape for their
initial bout with Ohio University,
January 10.
The grapplers got a little behind
in their practicing due to the ab-
sence of their coach, Cliff Keen,
who was helping the 150 football

mythical championship. They are,
nevertheless, coming along in fine

The freshman grapplers aren't
being left out altogether. Confer-
ence rules deny the fledgings' par-
ticipation in varsity competition.
This season, however, they will be
eligible for participation in the
Olympic district tryouts, to be
held sometime in the not-too-dis-
tant future, in Detroit. In addi-
tion, they will be able to enter the
state AAU meet.
The varsity wrestling schedule
for the 1948 season is as follows:
Jan. 10, Ohio U.
Jan. 17 at Illinois

to the faces of both Coach Do-

was more than satisfactory.

"The greatest event of the
Michigan vacation period was the
football game at Pasadena on
January first, when Michigan de-
feated Stanford University by the
decisive score of 49-0.
"The game was played under
the auspices of the Tournament
of Roses Association and the con-
servative estimate places the at-
tendance at eight thousand.
"In the gathering dusk, with
ten minutes yet to play, Captain
Fisher came to Captain White
(of Michigan) and said: 'If you
are willing, we are ready to
quit,' and, at the expense of one
or two more goals, Michigan
granted his request."
We'll continue this recap of
the first Rose Bowl game with
brief accounts of the scoring
plays. "Heston, by means of a
fake kick, went down the west
sideline in a brilliant 35-yard dash
to Stanford's five. Snow was sent
through center for a touchdown
and Shorts kicked the goal. Score:
Michigan, 6; Stanford, 0."
"Sweeley executed a plate kick
from Stanford's 20-yard line min-
utes later. Score: Michigan, 11;
Stanford, 0."
After a few more plays and
several punt exchanges "Redden
got the ball and by a sensa-
tional run, which the Stanford
men vainly tried to stop, scred
a touchdown. Shorts kicked the

goal. Score: Michigan, 17;
Stanford, 0."
The second half started with
Michigan kicking off. Stanford
fumbled the ball and Heston re-
covered on Stanford's 31. On the
fourth play Snow carried it across
tomake the score 22-0.
A few minutes later "Sweeley
kicked the ball 40 yards, Tarpay
fumbled, then Redden secured the
ball and by a 25-yard run made a
touchdown. Shorts kicked goal.
Score: Michigan 28; Stanford, 0."
After another exchange of
kicks Michigan held the ball on
Stanford's 23. It took five plays
before "Snow went over. Shorte
failed to kick goal. Score: Michi,
gan, 33; Stanford, 0."
Still going strong Snow made
two more touchdowns in the last
quarter to bring his total to five,
and Herrnstein "secured a touch-
down by a 22-yard dash through
tackle," to add 15 more points to
Michigan's total. Shorts made one
of the three conversion attempts
to give Michigan their 49 points.
It was after Herrnstein's
counter that Stanford's captain
admitted defeat, and the game
was subsequently called with
seven minutes left to play.
The Michigan Daily-News re-
porter did himself proud by sum-
ming up the game with the follow-
ing momentous statement. "Tech-
nically speaking, Michigan lost no
prestige in the Stanford game."
