Such scenes are always enlighten-
ing, especially when all the players
on both sides and even the man-
agers are out there clawing around.
And then the blue-coated minions
of the law step in and do some skid-
ding around on their own account.
Not that there is anything un-
usual inth fracas the other night
beyond three facts. The first, and
most surprising of these is that the
game is finally stopped just because
of three free-for-all battles. This is
generally considered as pretty finicky
in amateur hockey circles.
The second surprising fact is that
two former Michigan co-captains
are involved . . . Emmy Reid and
Keith Crossman . . . and they are
on different sides.
best of friends for years, and
they probably do not trade punches
in any of these fights, but it is still
strange when you consider the psy-
chology of the game which might
make these lads opponents in a
brawl. Team feeling always runs high
in hockey, and players who are try-
ing very very hard to put the slug
on each other in one game when
they are on opposite sides will be
fighting shoulder-to-shoulder if they
are on the same side.
Anyway so much for surprising
fact number two . . . two Michigan
hockey players who play side by
side for three years in college are on
opposite sides in several free-for-als.
And the referee during all this is
the man who coached them for those
three years . . . Eddie Lowrey, our
friend who teaches the Michigans
their hockey.
So it looks like the battle is all
in the family after all.
From the Free Press we have the
surprising note: ". . . charged them
with the shcoting and killing of
James Meyers in a cafe drawl here."
Oh, way way down South, eh?

More than 100 Big Ten swimmers
will arrive in Iowa City today in
time to accustom themselves to the
big Hawkeye pool before competing
for the Conference individual and
team crowns there Saturday.
Michigan's 11 man squad will ar-
rive in the Iowa lair about noon and
immediately set about getting used to
the 1.50-foot pool - just twice as
long as their own natatorium.
Five titleholders from last year will
be on hand to defend their crowns
against the best field that has as-
sembled for a Conference meet in
several years. Three of these will
wear the Maize and Blue of Mich-
igan, while the other two will repre-
sent Northwestern U.
Captain Jim Cristy will be at-
tempting to set a new record in the
440, to retain his title, as well as beat
out a flashy field of 220 men to be-
come a double winner for the sec-
ond successive year.
Captain Chuck Flachmann, Illi-
nois, is determined to take Wildcat
Captain Art Highland's 100-yard
free style crown from him as well as
chalk up a win in the 50-yard sprint
Another Wolverine titleholder who
should have little trouble defeating
the field is Dick Degener, defending
the lowboard diving crown he has
held since his sophomore year. Con-
ceded a chance to fight for second
place are Busby, Iowa; Wilke, North-
western; Janzen, Illinois; and John-
ston, Michigan.
Don Horn, the greatest breast-
stroke in the Conference since
Johnny Schmieler turned to other
fields, should retain his crown and
collect five points for Northwestern.
Lawrence, Michigan, and Colville,
Ohio, may make it a race, however.
Besides her three titleholders
Michigan will have entered a man
who won the Conference backstroke
championship in 1932. Taylor Drys-
dale, an immeasurably better swim-
mer today than he was when he set
a Conference record two years ago,
is the pick of the back stroke men.
Fela, Ohio State, and Miller, of
Northwestern, will probably finish
behind Drysdale in that order.
Bob Renner will be the only mem-
ber of the championship Michigan
medley relay team returning to de-
fend their title, while Northwestern
will have available for their 400-yard
sprint relay team two of the four
men who helped take the crown in
Handball Enthusiasts
Must Thank Irishmuan;
H He Americanized Game
Perhaps the perspiring athletes of
the handball courts don't know it
but they owe a vote of thanks to a
gentleman with the good old Irish
name of Casey.
You see, Mr. Casey is the father of
handball in the United States and
in fact the American game was born
in Brooklyn, N. Y. Casey had been
a star in Ireland and when he im-
migrated he wished to keep up his
favorite form of relaxation, so he
built a court and challenged all com-
In those days the courts were long-
er and differently built than the ones
in vogue today. They were 60 to
65 feet long, 25 feet wide and the
ceiling of the court was 30 feet high.
The players in those days must
have had pretty tough feet, for the
floors were made of concrete and in
many cases it was not so smooth. The
walls were constructed of slate and
the ball would be unrecognizable to
the handball player of today.
A baseball player would have been
much more at home with one for it

was of the same shape and construc-
tion as a baseball and the center was
of cork.
The players used their feet as well
as their hands and the wonderful
agility of Casey and his playmates is
still recited whenever old handball
players gather together.
And thus handball the sport of the
Irish kings in the tenth and eleventh
centuries has become the outstand-
ing indoor sport in the United States,
all because an Irishman wanted some

Battle In Interfraternity
Hockey Goes Through
Four Overtime Periods
The Chi Psi's and the Lambda Chi
Alpha's fought through a regulation
hockey game and four overtime pe-
riods last night in an attempt to de-
termine the winner of the interfra-
ternity hockey crown, then, with the
score still 0 to 0 and the clock point-
ing to 12, they called it a draw and
went home to bed.
Tom Prouse, director of the, puck
league, announced that the play-off
game will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sat-
Coach Eddie Lowrey, of the Var-
sity pucksters, praised the Intra-
mural players as displaying hockey
of near-Varsity caliber as they held
each other scoreless for 65 minutes
of actual playing time. It was he
who finally ended the debacle as the
University clock was striking 12.
Play throughout the first and sec-
ond periods was marked by bitter
body checking by both teams. In the
first stanza Matthews turned aside
several hard shots by Kocsis and the
Chi Psi's missed a golden opportunity
when Phillinger's shot missed the
unguarded goal while Goalie Reed
was flat on the ice.

The Chi Psi's came out with a rush
in the opening minutes of the third

lock. However Reed was invincible
and turned back Phillinger and Brien

When Michigan's co-ed natators
take to the water Saturday morning
at the Union in an attempt to wres
the national crown from Illinois, they
will be the stars, and the fastes
swimmers in their events from the
campus. The temporary line-up ha
been chosen on the basis of showing
made and time registered in the In-
tramural meet last week, and only
the point winners have been selected
for the Varsity team.
The list as it stands at presen
reads: Pauline Mitchell, Helen Ma-
son, Elizabeth Seibert, Barbara Suth-
erland, Elizabeth Howard, Mabe
Howard, Corinne Fries, Margare
Kasely, Miriam Stark, Mary Garret-
son, Mary Krieger, Harriet Wolfs
Helen Freund, Virginia Nimmo, Eliz
abeth Oberdier, Helen Gillespie, Bar
bara Stewart, Mary Montgomery
Betty Little, Marjorie Israel, Althe
Lisle, and Caroline Trueblood.
Before the meet Saturday this lis
will have to be narrowed down, a
each school may enter a team of only
15 members. The final practice wa

held last night, and the team wil
probably be announced today by Mis
