Near-Riot Halts D

MONTREAL (A)-Last night's
cancelled hockey game between
Detroit and Montreal was offi-
cially awarded to the Red
Wings by forfeit.
MONTREAL ()-The National
Hockey League game between
Montreal and Detroit was ordered
canceled last night by the Mon-
treal fire director after fans
.staged a near-riot against NHL
President Clarence Campbell, who
Wednesday suspended Montreal
idol Maurice Richard for the re-
mainder of the season.
The game was called after roar-
ing, screaming fans drove Camp-
bell from the Montreal Forum in
the worst hockey mob scene ever
seen here.

Detroit, tied with Montreal for
first place before Thursday night's
game, led by 4-1 when thQ game
was called.
'Mob Scene'
The bomb was the spark . that
sent the already excited crowd al-
most completely out of control.
Reporters on the scene described
the resulting demonstration as a
"mob scene," while Campbell rose
from his seat near one side of the
rink and made his way through
the cat-calling crowd to the exit.
There were no reports of in-
Forum officials said the man
who attacked Campbell got by
them by pretending to be a friend
of the NHL president. He kept up
the pretense, even to the point of
offering Campbell his hand.

Then he lashed out, slapping
Campbell and punching him.
The outburst came at intermis-
sion following the first period of a
game in which Richard sat as a
spectator seeing his teammates
taking a walloping from the Red
Wings, the defending NHL
Pare ordered his men from the
building because he said he feared
the sight of firemen would cause a
panic among the 14,000 fans-the
Forum's capacity.
Dash For Exit
The tear gas bomb was set off
near the front entrance of the
rink. A cloud of smoke billowed up
and Campbell joined hundreds of
others in a dash for the exits. The
cloud rose to the upper seats and
the catwalks, while spectators
coughed, wept and choked.

Punched by Fan
Campbell was punched by a fan
and pelted with overshoes, rub-
bers and oranges as spectators
screamed their displeasure at the
man who set down Richard.
Fire Director Armand Pare said

"Best depth in three or four
years," beamed Hockey Coach Vic
Heyliger yesterday in discussing
the addition of this year's fresh-
men to next year's Varsity team.
A past-season problem for the
NCAA champs of lack of quantity
should not be present in the near
future. Eight freshmen will be
battling to break into the 1955-56
line-up, which will be minus only
the second string goalie, graduat-
ing senior Bill Lucier.
Competition Keen
"The competition should be
keen," commented Heyliger, for
gaining a spot on the 15 man
squad. Barring injury or other un-
foreseen circumstances, Michigan
will be able to skate at least three
strong forward lines, backed by
five defensemen, and goalie Lorne
Best of the new crop should be
wings Wally Maxwell and Ed Swit-
zer, centers Neil McDonald and
Don McIntosh, and bulky defense-
man Ross Hudson. The other fine-
skating fowards, Gene Klun and
Morley Chin, have also improved
greatly and could be of great

Minn., and should he make the

George Chin, star '54 fdward.
Lucier Graduatesj
The graduation of Lucier, a fine
goalie who each season has been
forced to take a back seat to some
of the best cageminders in col-
legiate hockey, will leave a glar-
ing gap. Freshman Rog Romses
could be used if anything should
happen to Howes.
Heyliger feels that any predic-
tion as to the make-up of next
year's roster would be too early.
There is the possibility, however,
that several experienced skaters
who saw a good deal of action in
Michigan's hard struggle to second
place in the Western Intercol-
legiate Hockey League standings
and a playoff spot, may not be
around next winter.
With the surplus of strong of-
fensive linemen, Neil Buchanan
will probably be switched back to
a more familiar, defense position.
Other changes may also occur.

a 2-d final in the National Invi-

night, but not until Dayton had
been carried into overtime by the
unseeded but exciting little St.
The Dukes and Dayton will meet
for the championship Saturday
night, with St. Francis and Cin-
cinnati paired in a preliminary to
decide third place.
Stokes Scores 43
Duquesne's victory came as an
anti-climax after the opening
thriller, which kept the crowd of
16,485 in an uproar. Second-seed-
ed Dayton tied that one almost in
the last second of regulation play,
then pulled it out in the extra
period despite a superb 43-point
performance by Maurice Stokes
of St. Francis.
Duquesne led 36-22 at halftime
and never was less than 10 points
ahead during the second half.
