BEER OR NO BEER, it seems that
Michigan's athletes will be teeto-
tallers, at least to the same degree
that they are now. Getting down to
beer facts yesterday afternoon, the
inquiring reporter interviewed sundry
members of the Wolverine coaching
staffwith fairly negative results.
Coach Yost's attitude was one of
surprise that suc~h a question should
be asked. "If athletes are to be
trained on alcohol, then generations
of athletes and trainers are wrong,,,
said he substantially. He added that
alcohol was a narcotic, and that if a
sport existed in which a narcotic was
part of a good training diet, alcohol
would be all right for an athlete in
that sport.
"The consumption of alcohol has a
detrimental effect upon the physical
development of youth," said the Ath-
letic Director, "and since Michigan
athletes are striving for physical de-
velopment, the use of alcohol by
them will be discouraged."
Coach Ray Fisher of Michigan's
baseball team said that the use of
alcohol, especially in any quantity,
would be taboo on the diamond
squad, although the enforcement of
training rules is essentially up to'the
individual member of the group. The
mentor also added that most am-
ateur athletes were so interested in
improving themselves as athletes that
few were ready to take chances on
physical fitness,
When asked about the attitude to-
ward drinking in professional base-
ball circles, Coach Fisher said that
was all right until a man began to
fail to deliver, but if a player who
was notoriously a rounder did fall
into a slump, he was relegated to the
minors more quickly than one who
was making a conscientious effort to
keep training.
Coach Hoyt stated that, having
had no experience with beer in the
training of athletes, he did not care
to be quoted on the subject, but
Coach Ken Doherty of the freshman
track squad said that drinking, like
smoking, was frowned upon in train-
ing rules, although keeping training
was essentially a matter for the indi-
So it looks like no beer for the
Wolverines . . . well, not much, any-

Led by Coach Bill West and Cap-

the crowd thrills mixed in between
good acts of burlesque and gymnas-

Tonight's play may mean the de- l
termining of one of the finalists fort
the annual Stanley Cup playoffs, the
conclusion of the National League
hockey season. The Boston Bruins,
leader of the American division, will
play their fourth game with Toronto,i
pace-setter in the International di-
vision, on the latter's ice. The Bruins
have won two out of the three games
to date and need but one more vic-
tory to secure their margin in the
three-out-of-five game series. The
Toronto team is the defending cham-
Sunday night New York will face
Detroit at Olympia in the other semi-
final game, the winner playing either
Boston or Toronto. The New York-
Detroit series is of two games, the
team scoring the greatest collective
number of goals winning. New York
won the first contest 2 to 0 at Madi-
son Square Garden Thursday night.
Canadiens Eliminated
New York and Detroit eliminated
the two Montreal squads, the Ma-
roons and the Canadiens in the first
round of the playoffs. These six
teams qualified for the playoffs by
their play during the regular season.
The regular season consisted of a
48 game schedule, with the league di-
vided into two divisions, the Amer-
ican, comprising Detroit, Boston,
Chicago, and the New York Rangers,

and the International division, which
is made up of Toronto, Ottawa, the
two Montreal teams, and the New
York Americans.
The three teams with the highest
point totals in each division qualified
for the playoffs. Each victory netted
the winning team two points, while
a tie meant one point for each team.
The teams finishing first in each
division, namely Boston and Toronto,
are now playing off their five game
series, three victories being necessary
for advancement. If ,the games end
in a tie ten-minute overtime periods
are played until a goal is scored. Two
of the games have already gone into
Second Place Teams Clash
The second place teams in each di-
vision, clash in a two-game series,
total goals in the series determining
the victor. Detroit, in this manner
defeated the Montreal Maroons 5
goals to 2. The same rules govern
the third place squads, where the
Rangers outscored the Canadiens.
-With Detroit meeting the Rangers,
and Boston leading Toronto, an all-
American club final is expected.

No lineups have been selected fort
the scrimmage, which will be held
when the weather is favorable and1
the ground dry. It is expected that
two teams composed of veterans will
meet in the main scrimmage, to be
followed by two teams picked from
the ranks of the newcomers. If the
scrimmage is held today it will begin
at 3 p. m.
One of the latest arrivals to the
fold is Tom Austin, regular tackle in
1932. His return is

Due to rainy weather and the re-
sultant darkness prevailing in the
Field House, the baseball practices
for the last two days has been pretty
much of a wash-out. The gloom in
the building necessitated calling off
batting practice yesterday as the
boys couldn't see the ball.
Fielding practice was the order of
the day and balls were flying back
and forth endangering life and limb.
