schedule of games with teams
mostly from Canada.
Just as Rough
The rugby games are as rough
as football, with very similar ac-
tion to American football. It is
played on a football field with a
blown-up ball which looks like a
To score, the linemen; who com-
prise 8 of the 15 players, pass the
ball back to the backs. With a con-
tinuous action, stopping only for
penalties, they move the ball over
the goal line of the opponents.
The games are played at 3:30
on Saturdays, and it doesn't cost
anything to stop in and see the
second half on the way home from
a football game at the Stadium.
A newly-formed organization at
Michigan is the Michigan Ameri-
can Soccer Club. The group started
play twu years ago and has com-
peted in the International Center's
league the past two years.
Last year the team took steps
to have soccer adopted as a var-
sity sport. The movement was
basically unsuccessful, but a great
deal of interest was stirred up,
and this year the team intends to
try again, but on a larger scale.
The team has compiled an over-
all two-year record of five wins
and seven losses against teams
composed of soccer players from
abroad. Recruiting_ and practice
will begin during registration this
year, so the team will be in top
condition for its seven-game
schedule. A feature of this year's

In addition the team competes
with other Big Ten teams. The
whole shooting match is sponsored
by the team itself, and last year
it was, along with the wrestling,
gymnastics, andtrack teams, a
Big Ten champion.
The fencing club is. relatively
new and is still hoping to attract
some new members.
Two of the non-varsity sports
which are especially of interest to
women are the sailing and skiing
clubs. The ski club takes weekend
trips to the snowy regions of Mich-
igan. The enthusiasts can take
their semester break or spring
vacation and travel to Quebec or
Colorado with the skiers.
The ski club offers the latest
information on rates of ski mer-
chandise, movies on instruction in
the fast-growing sport and other
programs of interest to the ad-
vanced and beginning skier.
Lots of Sailors
The saling club is one of the
largest of the non-varsity sports
and boasts over 100 members,
both novice and experienced. The
club has eight sailboats at its
headquarters at Base Lake, 20
miles from Ann Arbor.
At weekly meetings on the cam-
pus members discuss various as-
pects of the sport and decide on
matters of importance to the club.
There is competition in regattas
all over the country, and many
Michigan representatives have
earned national or regional titles
in past years.
