James DeStefano yesterday was
electedn tothe captaincy of the Var-
sity fencing team for the 1932 sea-
son. DeStefano, at the present
time, is a sophorhore in the school
of Education, and will go down as
one of the few men in Michigan
athletic history who has attained
the leadership of a Varsity sport
in his junior year. His home is in
Albany, New York.
The new leader was a consistent
winner in all of the dual meets
held and promises to develop into
one of the best sabre men who has
ever represented the Maize and
Blue before, he completes his ath-
letic career.
The showing of the Wolverines in
the Big Ten meet was something
of a surprise to followers of the
sport, inasmuch as the dope sheet
gave them an excellent chance to

also expected to be on hand when
the roll is called next year.
Workouts will continue for some;
time to come in an effort to build
for next season with the entire'
Varsity squad and freshman merg-
ing into one group. Several infor-
mal meets are planned between the
members of the two squads to add
interest to the workouts which
sometimes become dull when no in-
tercollegiate competition is offered1
as an incentive. All of the mem-
bers of the freshman squad are
planning on competing in the In-
tramural meet Wednesday night
and members of the Varsity squad'
are to assist in the judging.
