COACH EDDIE LOWREY Mich-
igan's great hockey mentor, an-
ticipated our sugestion about hockey
referees by about one year. "Home
Town" officials were discontinued at
Michigan last year when Peter Fox,
former big-league official, was
hrought here to referee the most im-
In five of the first six matches
this year Fox produced expert offi-
ciating. The games were fair to the
opposition and the penalties were,
more or less, evenly distributed to
both teams. In the sixth match, the
refereeing was unfair to the visiting
team. The referee was not Fox but a
newcomer who probably will not be
But Lowrey's fairness evidently
has not spread to all the rest of the
teams because Michigan received
eight out of nine penalties in a re-
cent game away from home. Mich-
igan has not enough spares to give
the regulars their much-needed rests
but it is an almost impossible task
to ask them to overcome unfavorable
refereeing in addition.
MICHIGAN'S SWIMMERS did not
go on their annual jaunt through
the East this winter, swimming ath-
letic clubs, college teams, and all-
corners. Reduced financial aid was
not the reason, those in command
tell us. Instead it was the fact that
Michigan is too good!
Only New York A. C. was willing
to meet the Wolverinse in the tank.
None of the other former opponents
were willing to take a beating is the
reason that the swimming coach
gives for the dearth of opponents.
FEININE STUDENTS turned out
for their class basketball teams
last November. A round-robin pro-
cess of elimination was used to de-
termine the outstanding players. A
week after vacation the playoffs
started. The juniors defeated both
the sophomores and freshmen as did
the seniors, which leaves the two up-
per classes tied for class champion-
Yesterday was scheduled for the
finals between the two upper class
teams-the championship of Mih-
igan was at stake. As neither team
showed up, it was decided to post-
pone it to some indefinite date next
semhester. It was said exams were
were too near to ask the girls to play
All of the class teams will play
those of Michigan State, if the de-
tails can be worked out.This will in-
augurate intramural inter-collegiate
competition for women at Michigan.
But the Wolverine femmes are fac-
ing a doubting Thomas in us. When
State send teams here they'll prob-
ably be faced with the same situa-
tion that developed on the court yes-
terday. The Maize and Blue girls
will probably fail to show up again.
But it would be quite all right, thank
you, examinations would be near
Two National Meets
May Be Called Off
Wolverine swimmers may not have
a chance to defend their National
Intercollegiate title this year since
both the swimming and wrestling
meets may be dropped.
Coach Matt Mann has received a
questionnaire from the national com-
mittee that will determine just how
many colleges are planning to send
teams to either meet. If the response
is not great enough to make the
meets national in character it is
probable that they will be dropped
for the year.
Mann said yesterday that he felt
confident that the swimming meet
would be held, saying that at least
throwing your money away, on
cheap clothes, because of low
prices. Compare our clothes be-
fore you buy, many buyers are
doing that, therefore we are sell-
ing more clothes. Our clothes are
specially designed to fit best,

est styles. No antiques to paw
over, shop here before you buy.
Final Price Reduction!
Be Put Off
For At Least.
The suggestion that all committees
formed to revise football rules be
abandoned for a period of at least
five years is offered by Harry G.
Kipke, head football coach, Univer-
sity of Michigan.
Kipke, who is a member of the
"Committee of twenty" of the Na-
tional Football Coaches Association
organized to offer recommendations
to the National Football Rules com-
mittee, was outspoken today in op-
position to the suggestion that for-
ward passing be restricted by heavier
penalty for a second incomplete
"When teams are evenly matched,"
he said, "it would take a great thrill
away from the game if the forward
pass were restrictedw
any f ur th er. It -
would be easy to .-
defend against any
running game if we ,
did not have passes K
to worry about. The .
f o r w a r d passing - -
threat has a tend-
ency to open up the
defense. If passes
were eliminated or Harry Kipke
restricted to such an extent that
teams were afraid to use them after
one fell incomplete, the game would
be dull and numerous scoreless ties
Kipke mentioned the Southern
California-Notre Dame, Southern
California-Pittsburgh, Notre Dame-
Army, Ohio State-Michigan, Minne-
sota-Michigan, and Notre Dame-
Northwestern games last fall as ex-
amples in which forward passes
brought thrills and decisions.
"My suggestion," he said, "would
be that all committees that are form-
ed to revise footabli rules should be
abandoned for a period of at least
five years. I feel that the rules are
okay at present, and that the specta-
tors should be given time to learn
them. Many persons still are trying
to figure out rule changes of last
"I am opposed to any rule which
would restrict the possibility of scor-
ing. I feel that the defensive game
has progressed more rapidly than
the offensive. Any rule designed to
further curb the offensive is a big
mistake and is not fair to spectators
who are attending games."
EIGHT IS LIMIT
Eight games are enough for a high
school foot ball team. That's the
rule in Michigan and the rule will
stand, a mail vote among 265 schools
AUBURN CAPTAIN GOOD
Jimmy Hitchcocks, Auburn's all-
American captain of its grid team,
made 232 successful kicks during last
year's season without having one
five Big Ten schools - Michigan,
Northwestern, Minnesota, Wisconsin,
and Ohio State - are planning to
send teams or individuals and have
made provisions for it in their bud-
He pointed out that swimming is a
comparatively inexpensive sport, es-
pecially since most teams will travel
to and from the national meets by
automobile. It is probable that the
west coast entries will decide the

As the first semester of intramural!
activities draws to a close it is only1
appropriate to glance back and1
praise the champions who have suc-i
cessfully defended their laurelsi and
bail the new-crowned winners.
Competition in all events to date
,has been the most spirited in years,
and only the persistently good per-
formers have been able to break into
the winning column.
Outstanding has been the showing
of Alpha Kappa Lambda, last year's
intramural champions in team
events. The A. K. L's won the fra-
ternity speedball championship han-
dily for the fourth consecutive year
without dropping a single encounter.
Their number of consecutive wins
has now reached an enviable total
of 42 games.
New Cross Country Champ
Cross Country saw a new frater-
nity champion crowned when Phi
Kappa hill-and-dale men ran off
with the honors. They succeed Pi
Kappa Alpha, last year's winners.
Tau Kappa Epsilon broke into the
winning column for the first time
this season when it turned back all
comers to cop the fraternity hand-
ball title. Phi Beta Delta was unable'
to repeat its victory of 1931.
Theta Chi got back at Lambda Chi
Alpha with a vengeance in the dual
swimming meet this year. Still
smarting under a 22-19 setback it re-
ceived at the hands of the Lambda
Chi's in last year's finals, Theta Chi
ran away with all the honors.-

Good Will Fund
T Benefit B
The Student Good Will Fund will
receive the profits accruing from an
amateur boxing show to be held in
the Yost Field House during April
if tentative plans advanced by Ver-
non Larsen and approved by J. A.
Bursley, dean of men, are carried out.
Dean Bursley has already con-
ferred with Athletic Director Field-
ing H. Yost, in regards to obtaining
the use of the field house for two
nights and a definite decision will
probably be reached on Monday.
Larsen Shows .Interest:
Larsen, who coaches the Univer-
sity boxers, pointed out the great in-
terest that amateur boxing has
aroused throughout the state this
year and promised, to bring out-
standing amateur boxing teams here
from Detroit, out-state Michigan,
Indiana and Ohio.
He said that the only costs of such
a tournament would be for medals
for winners and for visiting boxers'
expenses. He estimated that such a
tourney propertly staged would bring
two or three thousand dollars into
the coffers of the Good Will Fund.
bested in any form of pool competi-
tion. The greek letter natators ran
their winning streak in water polo to
the fifth straight year, easily defeat-
ing all contenders. Keith Bennett,
Theta Chi goalie, has played all five
years and has never been scored on.
Among the independents, in cross-
country, the Humpty Dumpties did
not have a great fall. On the con-
trary they outran all competitors to
win the title. The Trojans were vic-
torious in touch football, succeeding
last year's champs, the Dark Horses.
Albert Melniker, won the indi-
vidual all-campus cross country race,
to take the title formerly held by
Archie McMillan of this year's Var-
sity harrier team. Alex McPherson,
succeeded Edward Pratt as all-cam-
pus golf champion.
Carver Wins Crown
A new winner was crowned in the
faculty golf tournament when Prof.
Harry C. Carver putted his way to
a victory over Wesley Darling in the
finals. Prof. James A. Cissell was
the title-holder last year.
To Play Host
T o Detroiters
The University fencing team will
go into action this evening in their
second match of the year. Their op-
ponents are the squad from the
Detroit Turnverein. The present
strength of the Detroit team is some-
thing of a mystery but in the past
they have always had a strong squad
and this year should prove no excep-
tion. The Michigan swordsmen arej
stronger than usual this season, with
five of the seven men on the squadI
back from last year.I
The match should be of interest'
to fencing fans as the two teams
will probably be quite evenly matched.
The seven men on the Michigan
squad are all adept at the art of
fencing and have all had previous
experience. DeStefano was one of
the bestdsaber men in the state last
year and has been in good form so
