Michigan's "Diversity in Har-
mony" theme is not confined Just
to the academic and social spheres,
but is also found inits athletic
Besides the better known var-
sity sportsthe program includes
the English game of football
known as rugby, the ski club, the
sailing club, a rifle and pistol
team, a fencing squad, and a wo-
men's swimming team.
For those who have never seen
a rugby match, it is a rough-and-
tumble combination of soccer,
American football, and the old-
fashioned brawl, with fifteen men
on a side. The ball is kept in con-
tinuous play from the time it is
thrown into the huddle of op-
posing linemen, who try to kick
the pigskin, which looks like a
very fat football, out to their
backfield teammates.
No Blocking
As in soccer there is no down-
field blocking, but unlike any
other game, when the runner is
tackled he must give up the ball.
Played on a normal football field
with two 40-minute halves and
no padding, one would think that
unlimited substitution would be
used, but it is not; no substitutions
whatsoever are permitted.

record for the regular season and
finished second in the Ontario

championships, losing only to the education, which they have pur-

THIS IS A GAME?-Continuous football without pads is the game the Michigan ruggers advocate,
here shown in the process of downing the Toronto Nomads in a match last spring. The ball carrier
must release the ball as soon as he hits the ground.

The club's 150 members con-
gregate at its Base Lake boat
house, which houses the club's
eight Jet 14 class boats, for sail-
ing, with weekly meetings on cam-
pus for training and discussion.
The racing team travels to nine
or more collegiate regattas dur-
ing the year throughout the Mid-
west and the East. This team
finished second in the Midwest
and fourth in the nation last year.

In the speed department there

nationally, mainly because of their
