Ruggers plan Yuletide junket

PRO SPORTS
Douglas lifts Wings out of cell dumps

By DIANA ROMANCHUK
Imagine a group of Englishmen'
getting together, practicing foot-
ball on Tuesday and Thursday
nights, and then coming over here
to challenge some college teams.
Well, that's what the Michigan
Rugby Club is going to do over
Christmas vacation, only in re-
verse, as they take on the English
in their native sport on their home
turf.
And in the bargain, the guys get
to see a good part of the British
Isles since there are games in
Northern England, Scotland, and
London.
They will be playing at least
eight matches in all during the
two and a half week tour.
The first game, against Hartlett
Pool, is probably the roughest on
the schedule. Tom Raboine, the
tour captain, calls it the club's
"baptism by fire."
After two more games there inI
Northern England, they head for;
Glasgow, then Edinburgh, and fin-
ally end up in London for the last
three days.
The English members of the
club originally instigated the idea
of a tour several years ago, but
many have since graduated, and
it now turns out that only one of
the 25 guys making the trip has
ever been to England before.
But the alumni were invaluable
for setting up contacts with the
English teams.
Most of the leg work in Eng-
land 'was done by Alan McClain,
ane ex-president of the club who
is. currently teaching at Edin-
burgh. He is one of three ex-
Michiganites turned-Englishmen
