Marq'uette and Wisconsin Rated Best of Midwestern Group; Mich. Unknown. BY. WILLIAM H. MKTCAI.I'i: CapfMV Unit-mil)- of Wfcron;:n Hofkty Trim College hockey teams .swinging into action tills winter are aiminj their shots al more than the inches of a goal and a mere conference championship. America's entry in the Olympic hockey m.ilches of 1932 will be chosen from tho^ teams which show the best results in' the present season. . With the International Annies scheduled lor .Mils country, all cf- . being made to muster - a high-standing, wcll-b.iianced team that will have th? advantages - of playing together for a feason. Hockey has long been a popular sport in sunh eastern schools a.s . Dartmouth, Army. Yale and liar - vard but only tn recent, years has .It taken. hold in the middle west "*nd Pacific Coast regions. Consc- ;qutntly, eastern teatns have had 8u edge over western schools hu: whether they will be able to maln- -.lain this• supremacy ts doubtful. -Msrqu^tte University lost but one .series to an eastern foe last, year! -and present indications are that they will-be as good or better this winter..Leading the Hilltop sextet - Is Bill Schultr, stonewall goal tend- :er and Wisconsin product. Strange- .ly, not another member of the regular team la from that, stale. One lorward ,Iine composed of stellar sophomores is entirely Canadian; .another his been transplanted Irom Hlbbing; Minn. The Canadians, Wetlofer, McCarm-and Mnklindcr. although new to collegiate hockey, are long in experience and their piny will do much to sentl Marqucttc to the Olympic flnals. Forming an equally strong! alternatt forward line, the HitblnR.tilo of Furlong, Moore ami . Elness tips had one year of con-, ference competition and excells iu combination play. Michigan this year has-more or less' unknown ability. Four mem 1 oers of last-year's championship .ttam are back bul one of these Laogen, may be Ineligible for conference competition. Last year was his first' in Big Ten hockey but - he previously played at Eveleth, . Minn M in junior college. His loss urould. lower Wolverine stock. While the team in front o! him . nyiy be strong or weak, goalie Tonipkins of Michigan can be counted on to uphold his end of the'; struggle. Rated as the best goal tender in the west In 1930. TompKiHs will be a tremendous aid to: Michigan's Olmypic aspirations. A Wraith of untried sophomorp ma- 1 ttiial -.with veterans Tompklns, SchUnderer and Curtis should found lout a strong squad. The best 6f.':the .Wolverine sophomore crop tSy»'.tariad!an trio, Read, Cross- numVaoa Williams. . .'JFofufled with veterans, Wisconsin cannot-,be overlooked in dopins '.a'-Jwestern.. leader. The Badgers h»y«, one. .complete team exactly the same as last year. In addition. alternate 'forward line 6t'-'.'marked ability. .'..Frisch at goal and Metcalfe and Swiderski, tleiense men, look to be Ihe strongest defensive unit In their section.- Led by the veteran Art Thorns*n of Milwaukee, the forward line-Is made up of Sicgel, Meikle- johii, Bach and Gallagher, with the last wq'alternatlng. Two good sop- hombret who will see plenty of actual hockey before the winter ends "are Kabat: and Kublsta. •Hidden -In a wilderness of rocks and'iron-mines in upper Michigan -is Michigan College of Mtncs'.at Houghton; where hockey is second nature to youth. Tlie school be- .ongs to no conference but it plays nec «sary. - uil conference teams and more than breaks even with them. .Michigan Tech, as the school is commonly known, has six lettermcn led by Jack Kllpatrick, a Canadian. With' Kilpatrlck on defense ts Tesen, All.America selection. The main cogs in - the attack of the Houghton sextet are "Hank" Lalva. another All-American, and Riiitta. Kaiser and Richards. Several sophomores are on the team. Unless miracles occur, Minnesota will find i herself • hopelessly outclassed .this winter. The Gophers have bat four veterans. These are Conway, Hollingsworth. Gould and Tilton and the latter may be lost through eligibility rules. Only Cou stantlne and Gibts of the. roorta show promise and Pond..tnust break in- a new goal tender from last (season's second , string. As an Olympic prospect. Minnesota- seems definitely oul of the picture, but the other four teams have almost an equal chance of being chosen. From a prc-scnson point of view, Wisccnsin and Mar' quette appear'strongest, but Michi-j gan and Michigan Tech will be near the bop.
