CLOSING the Intramural Building'
after 6 p. m. and all day on Sun-
days came as a. surprise to many
students who have been forced to
take their physical recreation in the
evenings or none at all.
Just where the responsibility for
this decision rests is not certain. To
clear up this mystery the following
men were asked the same question:
"Where did the actual order to close
down the building evenings and Sun-
days actually come from?"
Earl Riskey, assistant director of
the Intramural department, says,
"the decision has been reached aftei
a, meeting with the Board in Control
of Athletics."
Andrew S, Baker, secretary of the
board, commented, "The Board has
not met."
Fielding H. Yost, athletic director,
passed on, "I know nothing about
the closing order."
ketball teams will compare f a-
vorably with those of every state in
the Union, with the possible excep-
tion of Indiana, Coach Cappon
He says that Indiana high schools
emphasize ba sketball to a far greater
degree than do the schools in any
other state. Up until a few years
ago, high schools in southern In-
diana did nothing else but play
basketball. All through grammar,
elementary, and high school, teams
were formed amongthe students.
An example of this is that on one
of Purdue's recent championship
teams, three members of the quintet
started pr~iying together in °elemen-
tary school, continued in high school.
and topped off their careers with
Purdue's Varsity.
Another reason for the superiority
of Indiana basketball over Michigan.
in high school 'circles, is that their
state championship tournaments arc
conducted in a different manner.
There are no class distinctions. A
little school can defeat the largest
school in the state, or at least, they
have the opportunity to do so.
This stimulates basketball, espe-
cially in the small towns. Because
if they win, their title is the state
championship. There is no class dis-
tinction. And the little schools would
rather knock off one of the big ones
than win the state title in any othei

SPORT SHOTS include:
The College of the Pacific will
come in for more football publicity
than ever before by signing the
Egrand old man, Amos Alonzo Stagg,
as their coach. On their first day of
spring practice, they drew nation-
wide attention because of the old
Juan Carlos Zabala, winner of the
marathon, at the Olympics, was re-
cently suspended by the Argentine
Athletic Federation for his criticisms
of the federation's policies.
Roy Henshaw pitched Chicago's
baseball nine into a high place in
the Conference standings for the last
three years and has been rewarded
with a tryout with the Chicago Cubs.
In his first two starts in exhibition
games he has turned in excellent
performances, the reports indicate.
Coach Fisher said that Henshaw,
while with the Maroons, did not look
like a man ready for the majors, but
he had demonstrated enough to be
sure of a place in professional base-

closed evenings and Sundays from
now on, Earl Riskey, assistant direc-
tor of the Intramural department,
said yesterday. At the :am time it
was intimated that the building
might be closed down entirely after
spring vacation, although Fielding
H. Yost, speaking for the Board in
Control of Athletics, was noncom-
mittal on this point and Riskey said
that he had no orders as yet to close
"We have so far managed to con-
tinue all of our Intramural and In-
tercollegiate programs and hope to
be able to continue to do so," said
Coach Yost yesterday. He said that
the matter would be considered by
the Board at future meetings al-
though no decision would probably
be reached before the spring holi-
The reasons given for closing the
Intramural Building evenings and
Sundays are that most of the or-
ganized winter programs were com-
pleted at the Open House, held last
Thursday, and there is littlehneed to
keep the building, with its huge
overhead expense, open nights and
Sundays. The building has alway
closed down in the past although
never so early. According to Mr.
R~iskey the building was opened
earlier lastfall than ever before.
There is no reason to believe that
the spring program, most of which
lakes place out of doors, will not b
^arried on in full this year. Mor
interest than ever before has been
manifested in independent competi-
tions;, while a growth of fraternit
entries has been noted. In thetearr
tennis tournament, 48 fraternitie
have signified a desire to enter, a
contrasted with 33, the number tak-
ing part last year.
The winter program was charac-
terized as successful by Riskey, wh(
emarked that individual participa

While fewer fraternity teams com-
oeted in organized sports than in
1931-32, there was a noticeable in-
rease in the number of independent

Michigan has another nine letter
man in the making. Russ Oliver, a
sophomore, has won the coveted
award in football and basketball, and
is now gunning for a berth on the
baseball team.
Al Plummer, sophomore cage star,
has social inclinations it would seem.

A "strong man" once gave public performances in
which he stopped a 9 lb. cannon ball shot from a
fully charged cannon. The audience gasped when
the gun flashed and the human Gibraltar stepped
forward out of the smoke uninjured, with the 9 lb.
shot in his hands.
The trick lay in the way an assistant prepared the
cannon for the performance. He used the regulation
amount of powder and wadding, but placed the
greater part of the charge of powder ahead of the
shot. The cannon ball was propelled only by the
small charge behind it whichpwas just sufficient to
lob the 9 lb. bail over to the strong man.

A performance sometimes staged
in cigarette advertising is the illu-
sion that cigarettes are made easy
on the throat by some special
process of manufacture.
EXPLANATION: All cigarettes are
made in almost exactly the same
way. Manufacturing methods are

standard and used by all. A ciga-
rette is only as good as the tobaccos
it contains.
It is a fact, well known by
leaf tobacco experts, that
Camels are made from finer,
than any other popular brand.
In costly tobaccos you will find
mildness, good taste, throat-ease.
Smoke Camels critically, and
give your taste a chance to appre-
ciate the greater pleasure and sat-
isfaction offered by the more ex-
pensive tobaccos. Other cigarettes,
