The final curtain will ring
down on the 1947-48 hockey sea-
son this weekend when Michigan's
NCAA-bound skaters play host to
Michigan Tech in a two game se-
ries at the Coliseum.
Tonight's game will start at
8 and face-off tomorrow will be
at 8:30 p.m. Both games will be
broadcast by WPAG-FM.
Tech Beaten Twia2
# Engineer Coach Eddie Maki will
bring his charges south in an at-
tempt to revenge the early season
losses to the Wolverines at
Houghton and the rough treat-
ment that Michigan has handed
the Huskies since the 47-game se-
ries began back in 1921.
The Maize and Blue squads have
copped 28 of the matches while
losing only 17. Last year the two
r\Michigan's teams split a pair of
games, the Wolverines winning the
first, 3-1, and losing the second
by the identical count.
Since the 9-8 ;nd 4-0 defeats
j handed to the Techmen by Vic
Heyliger's veteran team, the
Houghton lads have been trodding
the way of mediocrity, winning
three and losing five. Their most
recent wins were a pair over Colo-
rado College two weeks ago, 4-0

and 3-2, and a victory over Min-
nesota's Gophers last week, 4-3.
'M' Favored
Michigan, on the other hand,
hasn't suffered defeat since the
Minnesota game last month when
they lost in overtime, 5-4, and will
be heavy favorites in the tradi-
tional series.
Two of Maki's brothers, Abbie
and Al, the currently donned in
Michigan Tech padding and will
see action in both games. The
Huskies' mentor announced his
starting line-up for the initial
game yesterday and it will be
headed by Jack Noblet in goal. His
brother, Dick, will hold down one
3f the defensive positions, and Ab-
bie Maki will fill the other defense
spot. Ted Olson and Burt Petaja
will flank Jimmy Ruhl on the
starting line.
Heyliger will counter with his
usual starters, Jack McDonald,
goalie, Ross Smith and Connie
Hill, defense, and Gordie McMil-
lan, Bill Jacobson and Al Ren-
frew, linesmen. McMillan will be
seeking to smash his all-time scor-
ing record for a single season of
play. He now has 52 points in 19
games and in 1945-46 he tallied for
56 markers in 23 contests.

To Coach C zie Cowles, the
most satisfying thing about his
boys is the "way they played on
the road." On foreign territory
they swept aside four of the blig-

Those squads were at their peak

entered town.

Don McIntosh, the only new-
comer to break into the starting
ranks,, also broke into the list of
final standings by swishing 115

at his record reveals that almost
