Hockey Squad
Strong, More
Hobbs Expected To Pace
Michigan Sextet In Drive
For PuckChampionship
With the best freshman squad in
the history of Michigan hockey form-
ing the backbone of the team, Coach
Eddie Lowrey's 1942-43 sextet will be
one of the most powerful outfits ever
to carry the Maize and Blue onto the
ice, if fate in the guise of the draft
and eligibility gives the puckmen an
even break.
The story of next year's team will
be the story of a sophomore front
line; a line which was able to put
four goals in the nets behind Hank
Loud in the freshman-varsity game
this winter. The success of next
year's team will ride upon the three
sophs who will make up that line
and- who showed during the 1941-42
season that they really know how to
play the game.
Hobbs At Center
Jack Hobbs, chunky package of
dynamite from Alberta, Canada, will
be the playmaking center of this vic-
tory-bound crew, and beside him will
be two other boys from way up north.
At the wings will be Bob Opland
from Calgary in the upper peninsula,
and Wilbert Ahonen from Mohawk
in the same region.
This is not to say that this line
will be the most important item on
the ice; in any hockey game the
goalie has the most responsibility,
and next year goalie Hank Loud will
have the added burden and honor of
being captain of the sextet.
However, it is not for nothing that
Hank has the nickname "Depend-
able," and in the minds of those who
saw his superlative play behind a
very weak team last year there is no
question as to his ability to stand up
under the stiffest attack.
Much Expected From Line
Therefore, with the goal situation
well taken care of, it rests with the
line to make or break the team. If
Hobbs and company can rack up as
many scores as they have led this
observer to expect, and in the process
keep the puck on opposition ice, there
will be a better than good record to
point at when the next season is over.
And the chances favor the sophs.
Yet another department must be
mentioned, and here again the big
news will be members of this fresh-
man team that has been mentioned
so often. While "Black Rudy" Reich-
ert will be back playing his usual
roughantough game at defense, there
will be a newcomer taking care of
the other back line position.
At present writing, big Bob Dur-
lieth looks like the boy to fill the
opening, but Stan Barnes may give
him a lot to keep ahead of in the
way of competition. At that, defense
will be the only place where the sex-
tet will not have improved between
seasons; the loss of Johnny Gillis to
graduation will be hard to repair.
Reserve Situation
What the Wolverines will do for re-
serves is a question which is easy to
answer, but hard to be specific about.
The answer is that there will be at
least two reserve lines, and even a
spare goalie which should make Hank
feel a little more safe after the last
year in which if he got hurt the puck-
men played without a goalie. (Luck-
ily he kept out of trouble, so the sit-
uation never occurred.)
However, the spare lines will not
be set up until the season is under
way. The returning letter men are
Bill Dance, Bob Kemp, Max Bahrych
and Roy Bradley. The first three were
playing together when the season
ended, but they may be shifted in
order to get a better combination.

The second frosh line was that of
Dick Wenzel at center, and Gordy
Anderson and Ed Sanford at the
wings. How they will fit into the
picture is questionable.

Chief Trailblazer For Wolverines

Michigan students were dis-
mayed to learn several weeks ago
that Dr. Elmer R. Townsley, of
the Physical Education Depart-
ment, had dropped dead from a
heart attack while conducting a
PEM class.
Dr. Townsley was the key man
in the University's Physical fitness
program and acting head of the
Men's Physical Education.
His death comes not only as a
severe shock to all who knew him
but also as a definite setback to
the University's physical educa-
tion program.
Dr. Townsley was considered a
leader in new types of physical ed-
ucation instruction. His aim was
to establish co-recreational work
as much as possible. Some time
back, Townsley told the writer,
"Just as the boys and girls study,
go to shows, and eat together, so
should they have the privilege of
participating in a diversified
health prcgram together."
His latest achievement was the
planned recreation program for
air raid shelters. Along with his
colleague Miss Marie Hartwig, Dr.
Townsley worked feverishly to
make this a successful course. And

Dr. Townsley's main aim in life
was to give people proper enter-
tainment and at the same time
work in a sound physical educa-
tion program, and you may be
sure the major part of Dr. Towns-
ley's plans will not remain unno-
This fall he was to succeed Dr.
George May as head of the physi-
cal education department. Since
his freshman year in college Dr.
Townsley had hoped for the day
when he would have this honor.
His chance came too late.
Students have lost a. real friend
in the passing of Dr. Townsley. It
was for them that he lived and as
Dr. Warren Forsythe points out.
"It was for them that he died."
If Dr. Townsley had anything
special to say to students before
he died the sentences would have
contained the same words he used
in his classes.
"Have a u na le of a good time
and he F ure that. y ou ia k e (are of
yourself s- tlhere can he many

gan men and women n Nbst re-

University Course
Is Long,_Difficu
The University of Michigan's
hole golf course, laid out over t
beautiful hills south of Ann Arit
leaves very little to be desired by I
golfer who likes his game the int
esting way.
The course, which was designed
the same architect who remode
Scotland's famous St. Andrews, h
long well-watered fairways which
trapped generously. The greensa
the largest in this district, and t
fast rolling surfaces call for
greatest putting skill.
Construction was started on
course 11 years ago, and was cc
pleted two years later at a cost

it was. When he had conipleted it,
schools the nation ever were copy-
ing it. Today his students are car-
rying his ideas throughout the
United Nations in an attempt to
ease the troubled minds of those
who spend weary hours waiting
for the air raids to end.

When the Wolverine grid squad opens their season against
Great Lakes Sept. 28, they will be led by George Ceithaml, power-
ful captain-quarterback. A senior hailing from Chicago, Ceit-
hamil succeeds All-American fullback Bob Westfall as captain. In
his freshman year George won the coveted Chicago Award trophy
as the most outstanding player on the squad and his brilliant
pla-y for the past three seasons has since justified the honor
accorded him.

Group Still Nearly Intact
Despite Army and Navy
Priorities On Coaches
Despite the fact that the army and
navy have priorities on coaches, and
are looking with speculative eyes at
the Michigan sports mentors, as yet
the coaching staff is practically in-
tact, and one of the finest in the
Cliff Keen, who was wrestling
coach at the beginning of the past
school year, is serving with the navy
in Georgia, but aside from that the
staff is the same as that which guid-
ed the Wolverines through their pa-
ces last year, and helped bring so
many victories for the Maize and
Football being the major fall
sport, a look in at the coaching staff
reveals that Herbert o. "Fritz" Cris-
ler is the head football coach, as well
as Director of Athletics, and he is
assisted by backfield coach Earl
Martineau, who came here from
Princeton when Crisler did in 1938.
Martineau was All-American at Min-
nesota in 1923. In that same year he
was also awarded the Western Con-
ference medal for proficiency in
scholarship and athletics.
Clarence Munn, line coach, was,
like Martineau, an All-American at
Minnesota, and likewise won the
Western Conference medal.
Wally Weber, who has the vital
job of training yearling candidates
for varsity berths was a fullback at
the University of Michigan in 1925-
26. His job may well become doubly
important if wartime measures make
it possible for freshmen to play in
Benny Oosterbaan, who is the only
Michigan man who has ever been

All-American three times in a row, is
also one of the few men in the his-
tory of this school to receive nine
varsity awards. Bennie serves as end
coach for the football squad during
the fall, but his job is hardly begun
when winter rolls in, because he is
also head basketball coach.
Ken Doherty, who coaches the
trackmen, followed in the steps of
his predecessor, Charlie Hoyt, when
his thinclads retained both the in-
door and outdoor crowns in his first
year here.
Yearling coach for the light-footed
trackmen is Chester Stackhouse, who
was chosen to take Doherty's old
position in 1940, when the latter was
appointed head track coach. Before
coming here he coached at Saginaw
High School.
Famous big league ball player Ray
Fisher coaches the baseball team. He
played at one time with the Cincin-
nati Reds and the New York Yank-
ees. He came to Michigan in 1921 and
since that time has turned out six
Big Ten championship teams. Ernie
McCoy is the freshman baseball
mentor, and the newest member of
the staff, having come here-only this
year. As a result of the war, which
has speeded up the program of so
many boys, Ray Fisher has had a
baseball team all summer composed
of boys in the summer term, many of
them former players, who have play-
ed picked teams from nearby towns
and leagues.
Perhaps the most outstanding rec-
ord held by any man on the staff is
that of Matt Mann, swimming coach.
Coming here in 1925, he has, since
that time, produced 13 Big Ten and
12 Intercollegiate Championships. In
1940 his squad became the first to
win the Big Ten, the National Inter-
