is the Hockettes, a
he Ann Arbor Figure

(..__________________________________________________________________

The Hockettes have been in
existence for four years. Their rou-
tine consists of precision chorus
.work. Of their many formations,
the "fast pinwheel" is best known
by skating fans.
There are 24 girls in the chorus
and four substitutes. The girls
range in ages from 14-25 and are
coached by Richardi Porter. Last
year the chorus preformed before
four home hockey games and once
at East Lansing.
The Hockettes are sponsored by
the Ann Arbor Figure Skating

Club. The club was founded in
1939 and has a total membership
of about 375 skaters. Almost every
age group is represented in the
membership of the skating club.
The Hockettes normally are an
important part of the annual
spring carnival put on by the Ann
Arbor Figure Skating Club in
March.
Again this year the Hockettes
will be providing entertainment be-
fore Michigan hockey games. Their
first anticipated appearance will
be Saturday. January 7, before
Michigan meets Michigan Tech.
Although tryouts were recently
held, anyone interested can con-
tact Mr. Porter or the skating club
for information.

By CAROLINE DOW
Last Friday night six University
students went moonlight sailing at
the Sailing Club on Base Line
Lake outside Ann Arbor.
As one described it, "The full
moon shone on the snowy shore
so it was almost as light as day
and the boat crackled as it cut
through the thin film of ice that
was forming on the lake."
None but frostbitten sailors
would go sailing in Michigan on
Dec. 2. And only those who were
really bitten with the bug would
hope for zero weather quickly so
they could go--you guessed it--ice
boating.
As soon as the ice forms for good
the hardier club members will
haul out its two monotype DN ice-j
boats and their homemade "blue
monster" and speed away across
Whitmore or Base Line Lake,
whichever is firmer.
The one hundred and one mem-
ber club which meets each Thurs-
day night, in West Engineering has
a boathouse, docks, a swimming
float and a fleet of nine boats
plus three ice-boats) on University
property on Base Line Lake which
is about 18 miles out of Ann Arbor.
The officers, Commodore Rich-
and Kelkenberg, Treasurer Carol
Kibiger, Secretary Sharon- Mail,
and Fleet Captain Dave Hartzig
lead the club during their terms
of one year. Other officers include
Race Chairman Norman Rabe,
Building and Grounds Chairman
Kenneth Ishizu and Faculty Ad-
visor Emil Nicolaysen..
The real joy of Jets is that they
do not swamp immediately and an
alert lipper and crew can right
the boat by standing on the cen-
terboard. If they act quickly
enough they can sail and bail
home and no one will be the wiser.
On heavy air days the "thing
to do" is get the boat planing or
rising out of the water by force
of its own speed. The exclamations
of delight on "getting up on a
plane" are so spontaneous that the
action is rightly called "a scream-
ing plane."
Sailors have often been called
"the beatnicks of the water" in
honor of their outfits. In the sum-
mer bathing trunks are in order
but winter winds bring out the
best striped long underwear, the
holiest shirts, the grubbiest sweat-
ers and the warmest foul weather
gear.
Topsiders are acceptable as long
as the soles are intact, the general
condition of the tops are ignored.
To be really stylish a "go-fast"
item of apparel is needed. "Go-
fast" hats, slacks, shoes, sweaters
and even scarves are sported by
the proud and sentimenal owners.'
One member even has a "go-fast
trophy," he got for going fast.
Ask any sailor, the sport is a

year around one. The coming of
ice brings ice-boating and the
grand sport of putting the boats
back into condition. Minor skills
such as sanding, varnishing and
mending sails come into real play
here.
Last Sunday the eight Jet 14
sloops and one MIT dingy were
pulled out of the water for re-
pairs. Work on them will go on
throughout the winter in the Stu-,
dent Activities Building workshop
onThursday nights. Weekends will
be spent sailing or skate-sailing on
the ice.
The new dock which went in last
spring was also pulled out last

The intercollegiate team, with
A and B skippers Timmy Schnei-
der and' John Goldsmith, had a
winning season this year taking
four firsts out of seven regattas.
They started the year with a
bang, romping over the midwest-
ern schools at Notre Dame for a
first.
In October they dropped a sec-
and to Wayne State University in
Wayne's home waters. After a
no-air team race with Michigan
State (which, parenthetically, they
lost) the team hit their low of
the season at Wisconsin-a fourth
place with Marquette winning.
The real high point of the fall

Sunday. Pulling out both boats
and docks requires that the hardy
sailors stand knee and waist deep
in December lake water to pass
the sections up onto the shore.
Coeds in the club had a hot soup,
good eats kitchen going over the
bonfire for the shivering waders.
In March or early April the dock
will go in again, heralding the
opening of the spring season. With
spring, the inter-club and inter-
collegiate racing begins. The inter-
club races are run every Sunday
morning while the intercollegiate
racing takes place each weekend
at a different college or university.
The most exciting race of the
year takes place the last Sunday
before Thanksgiving when the in-
tercollegiate team races the best of
the club. This year the "Whipper-
snappers" (collegiate sailors) sailed
through the lee of the "Old
Guard" to win the event.i

season came the following weekend
when. Michigan beat out nine
schools to win the New York In-
vitational for the Nevins Trophy
at the Marine Academy, King's
Point, Long Island Sound. Michi-
gan landed another first at their
home regatta, the Carey-Price Me-
morial ,to which eight midwest
schools were invited.
After winning the five-school
elimination series in Detroit for
the 14th Annual Mark Timme
Angsten Memorial Trophy Re-
gatta, the team went on to the
regatta itself, held at the Chicago
Yacht Club over the Thanksgiving
vacation, and ended the season.
with a third. Coast Guard
Academy and Ohio State topped
Michigan on the flukey waters of
Belmont Harbor in Lake Michi-
gan.
After the racing season the;
racers and the pleasure sailors all
settle down to a long cold winter
of sailing. For some it is their
first time in an ice-boat.
The thrill of first climbing into
an ice-boat and "going" is a rare
one, you only do it once. You
climb in and realize that you are
only about six inches from the ice,.
You sit in a little box with three
runners on it and as you skitter
across the ice at about 50 miles
an hour, you need eye protectors
or your eyes will be damaged by
the speed. It's beautiful.
But then, all sailing is beautiful.
