An Open Letter to the
Michigan Hockey Team
What's happening with you guys, anyhow? You've been playing so
poorly that the national hockey championship you've held for two
years goes down the drain unless you win these two games from North
Dakota. It's easy to see that, just by looking at the standings.
It's a bit more difficult to understand why you've lost three
of your last five games. If you can still play hockey, now is the
time to show it. A lot of fans are beginning to doubt it.
You've scored only six goals in the last three games. Four of those
six came against Michigan State-a bunch of hacking hamburgers
that don't belong on the same rink with you. That was your last
home appearance, and not too pleasant, at that. The defense was im-
mobile and lackadaisical. The forwards wouldn't backcheck or fore-
check, and your passing was wilder than a hog with a shotgun.
* * * *
PLAY THAT WAY against the Nodaks, and Cherski and Johann-
son will have you in a hole before you know it. According to the latest
summary from Bob Bowie, your sportswriter friend in Denver, Cher-
ski and Johannson were fourth and fifth in league scoring. That
pair is right behind Minnesota's Maysich, Campbell, and Daugherty
... the trio that made things so miserable for you at Minneapolis last
weekend.
Some observers say you really tried hard up there, but the
puck just wouldn't go in the net ... either because playing hard
was so strangely new, or you wasted half your energy in first fights.
(The crowds like fights, but try to save them for the last part of
the game. If you. can't win the game, you can always go to fighting.)
Anyway, the Gophers let you have only two goals in two games. They
whitewashed you the second night .. . the first time any team has shut
out Michigan since 1946.
* * * *
SURE, YOU'VE BEEN HURT by the loss of McKennell and Keyes,
but that won't go into the record books. Ten years from now the
record will simply say whether Michigan lost to North Dakota; it
won't say why.
If you lean on excuses, you're no better than Cheddy Thomp-
son and his Colorado Cry Babies. They spent all last season com-
plaining about their bad luck. They're likely laughing up their
sleeves right now at the way Michigan has flopped after losing
two players.
There's a very thin line in any sport between champions and
contenders. Those on top are there because they want to win. The
also-rans just don't give a damn. This North Dakota series will separ-
ate the champions from the also-rans. A lot of people are won-
dering which you'll be shortly after 10 p.m. tomorrow night.
Respectfully,
Ed Whipple

Indiana Retains Cage Lead
In Struggle for Big Ten Title

Phi Delts, Allen-Rumsey
Record Top Relay Times

Coach Don Canham's star-stud-
ded track squad will depart today
for Notre Dame to open tonight
its first dual meet of the season,
and its first indoor competition
against the Irish since 1944.
The last encounter between the
two teams, an outside event last
spring, saw the Wolverines on the
long end of a lopsided 92% to 39%/
score. The Irish squad, however,
is much stronger than last year's
competitors.
* * *
THIS YEAR the Irish have
made a sprinting start with an
easy triumph over Purdue's thin-
clads. But the Wolverines have
displayed balance and power in

For that

try

Michigan is both favored and
rated underdog in tonight's tri-
angular gymnastics meet with
Northwestern and Minnesota at
Northwestern.
The \Wildcats do not have an
outstanding man in any event on
their team who can be counted on
for sure points, and the Wolver-
ines are picked to come out on the!
winning end of this one.
* * *
WINNING all their meets so far
this season Minnesota has per-
haps the second strongest squad
in the Big Ten, ranking behind
top-notch Illinois which downed
Michigan, 63-33.
Leading the Gopher contin-
gent is Ken Bartlett a good all-
round man. Bartlett took eighth
on the horizontal bar in last
year's Conference meet and was
fifth in the all-around class. The
side horse is Bartlett's second
best event.

-

early season relay meets to rate a
bookmaker's edge over the Fight-
ing Irish.
Leading the Michigan cinder
contingent are three defending
Big Ten conference champions
and Olympic team members.
Captain Jack Carroll, who ran
for Canada at Helsinki, will
start the 440; and Canadian
John Ross, who set the Big Ten
record of 4:09.4 for the mile last
year, will go to the post in the
mile.
Sweden's Fritz Nilsson, defend-
ing Big Ten shot put champion,
will compete in his specialty. Be-
sides this trio, Michigan has

strength in the hurdles in Van
Bruner who took the high and low
hurdles in the Michigan AAU meet
two weeks ago and retained his
high hurdles title in the Michigan
State Relays last week.
* * *
WITH AN INDOOR mark of
:48.9, Carroll is favored in the 440.
Ross is expected to receive his
strongest opposition from John
Alexander, Notre Dame's out-
standing miler, while Nilsson will
be tested by the Irish's best, John
Cunningham, in the shot put.
Geoffrey Dooley and Roy
Christiansen, both capable of
running 1:57 or better in the
880, will match strides with No-
tre Dame's Al Schoenig. The
Irish, with Jim Harrington and
Joe Springer, are favored in the
pole vault, Michigan's weak
spot.
Wolverine leapers Bob Evans,
Howard Liverance, and Dave
Heinzman can be expected to meet
strong opposition in high jumper
Tom Hassinger who has topped
six feet, three inches.
* * *
JOHN MOULE, a miler, will
team with Lynch and Bob Hall
in the two-mile for his initial
start in the longer distance.
Sophomore dashmen John Val-
lortigara and Ross Coates and
junior Dave Stinson will repre
sent a young but competent en-
try in the 60-yard dash.

The other chief Minnesota
threat is Verne Evans, much im-
proved over last season when he
took fifth in his specialty the
trampoline at the Big Ten clash.
* * *
COACH NEWT LOKEN has im-
provised some changes in the
Michigan lineup in a desperate
hope to fill in the gaps left by
the ineligibility of Lee Krumb-
holz and Harry Luchs.
Trampoliner - tumbler Don
Hurst will give the flying rings
a spin while rings specialist Dick
Bergmann will try his luck on
the parallel bars.
Promising young gymnast Frank
Barbero takes a turn on the high
bar besides the side horse on which
he is fast becoming adept.
STILL MICHIGAN'S top threat
Mary Johnson will operate in five
events. Johnson is noted for his
prowess on the parallel bars and
high bar.
The Wolverines now possess a
3-1 record in Conference dual
meets but have a rough road to
hoe facing Minnesota today and
a good Michigan State team in re-
maining meets.

league record for game average
set last season.
Illinois kept pace with the
Hoosiers as they rolled by Iowa
and Purdue the past weekend
with very little trouble. The II-
lini, two games behind Indiana,
will have a chance to avenge
their early season loss at Bloom-
ington when the two teams meet
February 28 at Champaign.
Minnesota, currently in third
place with a 9-5 record, seems to
be the only other team on the In-
diana schedule capable of defeat-
ing the Hoosiers. The Gophers
have been strengthened by the re-
turn to action of Chuck Mencel
who scored 26 points while leading
Minnesota to a 90-83 overtime vic-
tory over Michigan.
* * *
IN GAMES this weekend, Indi-
ana may have some trouble with
Ohio State Saturday when the
Buckeyes, led by Paul Ebert, the
Big Ten's second leading scorer,
invade Bloomington. The Hoosiers
have a comparative breather Mon-
day, in preparation for the big
clash with Illinois, as they are at
home with Purdue.
In less important encounters,
Michigan State -is at home for
games with Purdue and Wiscon-
sin, Michigan meets Wisconsin and
Northwestern at Ann Arbor and
Ohio State plays Iowa at Iowa.
