Season Renewed Feb. 10
Examinations, the bane of the stu-
dent's life, lie just ahead of Michi-
gan athletes, as a consequence of
which competition will be a missing
factor until Feb. 10.
All coaches have called off regu-
lar practice in conformity with the
demands of the situation, but men
who are on the squads will be ex-
pected to follow training rules1
throughout the examination period.
When they have finished their work
on the campus they will be expected
to report again, and work on as much :
of a schedule as can be maintained.

T HE ONLY SAFE ONE TO TELL stories about is Fielding Harris (Hurry
Up) Yost. We retold one of Steve Ferell's recently and then run into
a niece of Mike Murphy, the hero, who blistered our ears with comments.
Other sport writers must think so too because he is the subject of more
stories than anyone else we know of. He passes our humble remarks off
with, "Oh boys will be boys, and anyway if they did not tell that one it
might be another that would not set as well."
John Kieran, who writes the sport column, "Sports of the Times," in
the New York Times thinks that the best way to stop a Huey Long tirade
that serves to take up the Senate's time is to send Yost after him.
Quoting, "Why is Michigan delinquent in a national crisis? Out at
Ann Arbor there is Fielding H. Yost, an orator who could give the King-
fish a Carnegie library from which to quote and then talk him right into
the Potomac River.
"Of course, there is something in the Constitution about cruel and
unusual punishment' and the political leaders may have that in mind in
leaine. dstt Ann Arhr. Tt i-

true that the Hon. Huey exhausted
his listeners and held up national
legislation at a considerable cost to
the groaning taxpayers of a burden-
ed nation, but. . . (what) Fielding
Yost would do to him oratorically
is too cruel to contemplate.
"The Kingfish would be the softest
of set-ups. He thinks he knows all
about football. He gives 'Biff' Jones
instructions on how to coach at
Louisiana State. What an opening
for a Yost! One devastating oratori-
cal drive and it's odds n that the
conquered Kingfish would flee south-
ward with his hands clapped in an-t
guish over both ears.t
"It might be cruel and unusualI
punishment and yet there are some i
Senatorial listeners who would takeJ
deep delight in seeing the Kingfishu
hitting it for home with . . Yost in
his wake shouting: 'Wait a minute!t
That's only the beginning!'"r

BEFORE ICE HOCKEY'S rise inc
American colleges, many easternr
universities played ice polo. It wasc
quite a sport at Harvard and other
schools before hockey became popu-t
lar, about at the turn of the century.I
It was frankly adopted from polo.7
A stick and a ball were used to scoret
in goals. The ball was of red rub-X
ber and the sticks were shorter ands
thicker which gave the name, "short-3
stick" to -it as differentiated from,
"long-stick" or hockey.
The rules were very free. It wasY
played on a. lake with no playing
boundaries. There were no limits to
the playing section, no on-side, not
The goals were four feet apart and1
about 20 inches high. In icy hockey
they are six feet apart and four feet
high. There were only five men on;
a team in ice polo, a center, two for-
wards, one defense man and a goalie.
Brown and Harvard tried to form
a league with Yale after playing sev-
eral games between themselves. Yale
decided to turn to the Canadian
rules of hockey instead of polo. Har-
vard stuck to polo until the winter.

wrestling team's locker room

was working out, robbers broke into
the lockers of Coach Cliff Keen and
Bob Helliwell. They netted $16.
Committee May Increase
Incomplete Pass Penalty
NEW YORK, Jan. 25.-()-Refer-
ence in the 1932 Football Rules Com-
mittee report to the fear that some-
thing might have to be done event-
ually about the forward pass, has
brought f o r t h from prominent
coaches at least three suggestions
that something be done immediately.
As a result, football's "Committee
of Twent," representing college and
high school coaches, with Lou Little,
of Columbia in the chairman's seat,
will meet here early in February to
draw up recommendations to the
Definitely, the fear of the Rules
Committee that forward passing was
getting out of hand and that indis-
criminate tossing should be dis-
couraged, has brought these sugges-
1-That the penalty for two suc-
cessive incomplete passes be increas-
ed from five to 15 yards.
2-That forward passes be per-
mitted from any point behind the
scrimmage line, replacing the present
restriction that the ball must be
thrown from a point at least five
yards behind the line.
3-That a forward pass caught by
the defense after it has touched an
ineligible receiver be ruled an inter-
cepted pass, instead of an incomplete
pass as is the case today.
To Be Given
Varsity 'Cripples' Ready
For Action; Squad Of 9
To Make Eastern Jaunt
Michigan's high point wrestler for
the 1932-33 season will receive a
trophy, it was announced yesterday.
Donations by the members of the
team are making the award possible.
Just what the nature of the trophy
will be has not yet been announced.
Twenty men have been lopped off
the squad since December, and the
remaining men will make up the
team for the season. This was made
certain by Coach Cliff Keen's state-
ment that there would be no more
A squad of nine men will compose
the team that will travel east to face
Penn State and Navy Feb. 10 and 11.
The wrestlers will make the entire
trip by automobile, according to
present plans. The personnel of the
squad has not been announced as
yet, although the wrestlers are work-
ing out daily.
Two of Michigan's "cripples" are
now back in shape. Captain Blair
Thomas has fully recovered from the
attack of influenza which sent him
to bed last week while John Spoden,
twice all-campus champion and
promising heavyweight candidate, is
recovering from his foot injury and
should be ready for full service in
a few days.
Joe Oakley, veteran 126-pound
wrestler, who suffered an aggrava-
tion of an old knee injury in his
match against Captain Stan Ball of
Michigan State Saturday night, is
taking light workouts this week. Ac-
cording to Coach Keen Oakley de-
serves nothing but the highest praise
for his game exhibition.
ANOTHER COLORFUL OUTFIT
Following the example set by
Captain Blair Thomas, Michigan's
wrestling captain, Ed Lahwehr,
promising 145-pounder, is wearing'a
bright red sweat shirt and purple
Climaxing a season of intensive
practice and a week of strenuous
tournament play, the senior and
junior class basketball teams will
oppose each other in the finals this
afternoon at Barbour gym.
The teams appear well matcned,
and have both come through to the
finals with two wins to their credit.
Both have played and defeated the
underclass teams. The seniors played
against the freshmen and beat them,
despite the fact that their team was
short on players.
After the examination period is
finished, the class games with Michi-
gan State will be played off. The
Lansing freshmen and juniors will
come to Ann Arbor for the competi-
tion, while the Michigan sophomores
and seniors will take the trip to the
Miss Laurie Campbell, Miss Marie
Zettler, and Marie Metzger have
managed zhe Interclass play, and
have been instrumental in bringing
about the inter-school games.
Alpha Chi Sigma Will
Defend Bowling Crown
With 15 houses already entered in
the Interfraternity Bowling Tourna-
ment, play is scheduled to get under
way during the latter part of the
week. Alpha Chi Sigma, last year's
winners, are entered again, and are
expected to make a good showing.
The matches will be rolled at the
Michigan Union bowling alleys.
