Six volleyball matches will take
place at 5 p.m. tomorrow with an-
other six on Thursday. All in all,
thirty-five faculty volleyball teams
will be matching their skill against
a like number of student teams.
Other sports are on the month-
long program. These include, to-
- gether with the number of faculty
participants: fourteen basketball
teams, twelve bowling teams, 30
squash players, 12 doubles in
handball, 15 doubles paddleball
teams, and a five-man team in
table tennis.
Also included is a rifle-shooting
contest composed of a faculty
team made up of two men each
from the three service groups,
Army, Navy, and Air Force.
Earl Riskey, director of intra-
murals, who is in charge of set-
ting up this program, has a unique
method of encouraging his faculty
colleagues and discouraging the
students. He tells the students
that victory over the faculty is
tantamount to expulsion from the
University. He then tells faculty
members that he will start pro-
ceedings to have them replaced if
they lose to the students.
The Physical Education Depart-
ment staff forms two volleyball
teams to play physical education
majors. This event is held at noon
after which the faculty and stu-
dents have lunch together.

which take place at 5 p.m. tomor-
row are:

Symington said the league

Conspicuously absent from .the
at-large selections for this area
was De Paul, the tenth-ranked
team in the country. The decision
by De Paul was to enter the Na-
tional Invitational Tournament in-
stead of the NCAA.
The Rev. T. J. Wangler, chair-
man of the De Paul athletic board
explained why the university ac-
cepted the NIT bid rather than
the one from the NCAA.
He said:
"De Paul accepted the NIT in-
vitation over that of the NCAA
because the university feels a
sense of loyalty to the NIT com-

Better Than



"I still think we're the better
team," commented coach Gus Sta-
ger after a disappointing 57-48
loss to a strong Minnesota team
last Friday.
"They're the better team be-
cause they won, but on paper and
in times I still think we're better.
We didn't swim well. They swam
very, very well."
The nine points which separated
the Wolverines from the Gophers
cannot be made up now, But
Michigan will have its chance to
beat Minnesota in the Big Ten
finals, March 5-7 which mean
more than any single meet during'
the season.
Part of the reason for the loss
was that the Wolverines managed
only five firsts in the meet, two of
these being ties. In case of a tie,
the first place points (five) and
the second place points (three) are
split between the two places, giv-
ing each a total of four.
Stager also pointed out that the
Minnesota swimmers had shaved
their legs, something which Mich-,
igan, as most other teams, does
not do until the championship
meets at the end of the season.
He feels that this practice im-
