Pucksters Remain Unbeaten;
Tie Toronto in Ron gh Game

By smashing Toronto's hockey
supremacy, Coach Vic Heyliger's
1948 aggregation kept its season's
slate unblemished, winning the
first of the two gam'e series, 3-2,
and tying the Canadians the sec-
ond time out, 4-4.
After edging Toronto on De-
cember 18 in Chicago, the Wol-
verines returned home the follow-
ing night and overcame a first
period 3-0 deficit and a second pe-
riod 4-2 score to knot the game
up in the final stanza.
Gordie McMillan, who now
leads the Michigan skaters in
scoring with 12 points, netted the
tying counter on a pass from
Al Renfrew at 16:05. McMillan
added two assists in the hafd-
fought fray to boost his point to-
The visitors struck hard in the
initial frame, shooting the disk
past Jack McDonald on three oc-I
casions. McMillan drew Mich-

igan's first major penalty of the
current campaign when he and
Ted Ecclestone were waved to the
box for five minutes on a high-
sticking charge.
Gacek, Renfrew Tallyj
Wally Gacek teamed up with
McMillan for a goal to draw
within one point of Toronto at
12:49 of the second period after
Al Renfrew had taken a pass
from McMillan and scored for the
Wolverines' first tally.
Toronto again rushed the Mich-
igan nets and after several bril-
liant saves by Jack McDonald, Ed
Kryzanowski sent a 30-foot drive
into the netting at 15:32 of the
middle period.
Ted Greer, Michigan's leading
goal-getter, tallied his sixth goal
of the season on a flip from Bill
Jacobson at 6:56 of the final
frame to set the stage for Mc-
Millan's tying shot.

but a big joke; because anyone
can plainly see that Michigan was
trying to gather a whole barrel
full of points against Southern
California, while the easy-going
kids from Notre Dame (who, inci-
dentally, had a terrible time try-
ing to hold themselves to a mere
36 points in the first quarter
against Tulane) were taking it
easy on their little friends from
the coast.
Mr. Costin points out that
Frank Leahy and Jeff Cra-
vath are old buddies, and inter-
sectional rivals, and fellow foot-
ball coaches just trying to get
along in the world, and all that
sort of stuff; so why should the
Irish rub it in.
Ile says that the Notre Dame
jayvees played most of the sec-
ond half, and he points out that
the Irish didn't throw a single
pass in the whole last half of the
Trojan game.
It was a very touching article
indeed, any Anyone reading it
would certainly not hesitate to
award Santa Claus Leahy a good
good neighbor orchid or somethin'
for his consideration of Jeff's feel-
ings. But I'm afraid that Mr.
Costin let his enthubiasm kun
away with his common sense-and
besides that he left out a fact or,
In the first place, at the time
the Irish and Southern California
tangled, the Trojans were regard-
ed as the nation's number 3 team,
and many persons gave them a
fighting chance to defeat Leahy's
boys. Now, the score, as I happen
to recall it, was only 10-7 at the

Much as I would love to believe
in the brotherly spirit of Santa
Leahy, I find it extremely hard to
convince myself that he would
take that much of a chance of
losing the National Championship
just to spare Cravath's feelings. I
sort of think that the Irish would
have liked just a bit safer lead at
the intermission-that is, if they
could have gotten it.
In regard to Michigan's laying
it on the Trojans in the second
half, I would like to respectfully
submit to Mr. Costin a simple
problem in mathematics. Michi-
gan had 21 points at the end of
the 1st half, Notre Dame man-
aged to collect 10. The Wolver-
ines came up with a total of 49,
while the Irish settled for 38. Now
by simple subtraction, we come up
with an amazing fact which will
apparently be a great surprise to
Mr. Costin. Both teams scored
exactly 28 points after the inter-
mission. Apparently the Irish
were right in there swinging all
the way.
As for Notre Dame not throw-
ing any second-half passes, I'm
afraid I must point out that
Frank TrApuka, second-string-
er, was right in there pitching
them at the end.
And just one final question, Mr.
Costin. If Notre Dame was not
trying to pour it on, then why,
after scoring their final touch-
down (with apologies to Uncle
Jeff, of course) did the Irish at-
tempt an ON-SIDE kick-off in
order to try to get the ball again
in. the last 30 seconds. Just to
freeze it, no doubt.
