WIMMING COACH, Oxygen Mann,
without being asked, gave his un-
jualified approval of our recent
irade against Conference hockey
fflicials-specially at Minnesota.
Mann makes hockey his second
ove, and lets nothing except a swim-
ping tourney interfere with his see-
ng a Wolverine game. He said
'Hockey is steadily increasing in pub-
ic appeal and may some day oust
>asketball. It can only do this if
he rowdyism now prevalent, is
topped and if good, responsible off-
ials are employed."
Oxygen Mann continued, "It is
argely the fault of the officials that
uch conditions exist. There is just
is much bodily contact and as many
lose decisions in football as there
ire in hockey, while at the same
ime, there is no fighting in the for-
ner and plenty of it in the latter.

ockey players do."

Assurance of a victory or second

UNCONFIRMED RUMORS have it,
that Kerber and one of his team-
mates on the Northwestern swim-
ming team, both backstrokers, are
ineligible. Kerber swam unattached
in a N. C. A. A. U. meet in Chicagof
last Saturday night while . the rest
of last semester's swimming team
participated under the name, "North-
western."
His loss will compensate in part
for Drysdale's ineligibility. They
would have met in the Evanston pool
tomorrow night when the two schools
swim. Michigan will have an easy
time with Chicago the next night.

THE AUTO ATHLETES of Michi-
gan, nine car-weary wrestlers, re-
turned to Ann Arbor, barely able to
say that they "brought 'em back
aline." Two cars, containing the nine
grapplers braved the sub-zero weath-
er to drive East to take two beatings
from Penn State and the Navy on
successive nights.
In addition to the bitter pill of
defeat, the boys drove from 1 a. m.
to 7 p. in. in order to arrive in An-
napolis in time to meet the Midship-
men. A howling blizzard complicated
matters. Of the men who made the
trip, only Harvey Bauss and Captain
Blair Thomas didn't take turns at
the wheel.
Bauss used the excuse that it was
too cold for him although he is from
Buffalo, the wind-swept town of Lake
Erie fame. Parker, Landrum, Mosier,
Helliwell, Wilson, Oakley, Spoden,
and Coach Keen, all took their turns
at the wheel.
From a secret source we found out
that one of the cars was wrecked
twice on the trip, not seriously either
time. Two wheels spelled the damage
in the second collision.
