WHAT MORE CAN WE SAY? That great American sports inven-

presidential election, to the patrons of a Parisian pub; spelling
out George McGovern's defeat in cruel black and white. But
after all, is politics any more than a game to be scored on a

ANN ARBOR-The Michigan rugby football club has been holding
closed practices at Flick's Bar in preparation for their Sunday blood-
bath against the LIBELS.
After the practice, rugger coach Happy Holloway informed the
press that he had been intently drilling his team in the finer points of
chugging Strohs and how to pick up a loose waitress in the open field.
Displaying the false confidence of the ruggers, Moons Kingsbury
verbalized, "Dem LIBELS ain't really never won a game (sic)."
