Vacation days brought a mix-
ture of emotions from the Michi-
gan hockey team.
The Wolverines won two games,
one of them a league contest,
which naturally carried a wave of
high feeling. But examinations
played havoc with one player's
Ross Hudson, a Michigan de-
fenseman, has been declared in-
eligible for the second semester.
On January 15, as most students
were preparing for final exams,
the Michigan hockey team played
Michigan State at the Coliseum.
The Spartans from East Lan-
sing had upset Michigan exactly
one week prior to this day, ending
30 years of Wolverine hockey
When the buzzer sounded, end-
ing the game, Michigan had
scored a 4-2 win, the same score
by which it lost seven days earlier.
But the score was the only thing
that faintly resembled the first
meeting of these two teams. The
game was sloppy from the start
and the passing was anything but
sharp. This. contrasted the spir-
ited, bristling game that was
played at East Lansing,
After the game one of Michi-
gan's players offered a possible
explanation for the type of con-
test that had been waged. "I won-
der how many of their (MSU)
players put in all-nighters last
night,", he said.
A good sign in this game was the
return to form of Neil McDonald.
After being injured early in the
season, he got two goals and an
assist for his second consecutive
On Feb. 1, the Wolverines flew
to Ithaca, N.Y., to play the U.S.
Nationals. Michigan was consid-
ered by many observers the under-
dog, but it pulled out a 5-3 win.
Many of the players considered
this game the finest one Michigan

Ed Switzer was one of the of-

The senior registered a "hat trick"
by scoring three goals.
Steve Bochen and Gary Starr
got the other two goals.
The standlings in the WIHL re-
mained almost unchanged during
the vacation. Denver continues to
lead the league and Colorado is
still second. Michigan is currently

place, both teams having six

mainder of the twenties and
through the thirties.
JNecause of the growing popu-
larity of the sport, the necessity
for a league was realized, this
eventually grew into the Midwest
Intercollegiate Hockey League.
The 1934 season was one of the
few bright spots in over two
decades of Wolverine hockey.
It was the first time the team
copped a championship of any
kind. The new era in Michigan
hockey arrived with the coming of
Vic Heyliger as Wolverine coach.
He guided the team to confer-
ence championships in 1945-46;
1946-47 and to NCAA titles in
1947-48, 1950-51, 1951-52, 1952-53,

The fabulous "Roaring Twen-
ty's" started off with a bang for
Michigan students wrapped up in
the "fastest game on ice." It was
in February of 1920 when a group
of students, picked from the inter-
class league, prevalent in the ear-
ly part of the twentieth century,
played for Michigan's first "in-
formal hockey team."
Their spirits were bolstered even
further on the night of February
17, when the Wolverine sextet
edged out the "Assumption out-
fit" 1-0. As the Daily reporter cov-
ering that game p h r a s e d it,
"... the men have been showing
unusual interest, and need but a
little practice to produce one of
the strongest teams in this part
of the country.

The road, however was not an
easy one. Although more games
were scheduled that year at Wein-
burg Rink, many were forced to be
postponed because of warm
weather and sloppy ice. Students
whose interest had been ignited
were disappointed time and again
by the unfavorable conditions.
With the coming of wa'rm
weather, the game was forgotten.
But hockey returned from ob-
livion the following season. The
team found a home in the new and
beautiful Coliseum, which was
originally built for figure skating.
The high spot of those early
years came in 1922 when 2,500
fans packed the Coliseum to
watch the Wolverines wallop
Michigan State College, 5-1.
For the remainder of the year,
fan participation was astounding.
Crowds of over 1,000 journeyed to
Madison, Wis., and to Houghton,
to watch the Wolverines play.
Over the summer the Athletic
Board decided to make hockey,
along with swimming, golf, and
track varsity sports. Despite these
bright notes, Michigan hockey
