' Legal Mayhem!
This poem, which indeed bath
something of the smell of the dog
about it (doggerel, to you), is in-
tended to portray the' emotions of a
shocked spectator on viewing his first
professional hockey clash. Natural-
ly, the spectator is slightly sensitive
and has not yet become accustomed
to, shall we say, the more violent
features of the game.
Seriously, with a near-riot up in
Montreal over a game between two
home teams, the professional hockey
situation needs intelligent direction.
A class of referees akin to the um-
pires of the major baseball leagues
might do much to eliminate some
of the violence.
Let legal mayhem
Hold its sway
And let the teeth
Fall where they may
Come on boys sockem
Rockem biffem bangem
Killem murderem maimem
Smackem ruinem crushem
One of the boys
Namekl John La Bate
Tripped up his man
And left him flatte
Then he stepped
On little Billy
With his skates
And knocked him silly
But the ref said
Tsk tsk John
How long has this
Been going on?
Then a lad (his
Name was Jack)
Socked his opponent
In the back
Again he smacked him
On the head
And left him on
The ice for dead
Jack said the ref
4 isn't nice
To dirty up'
The pretty ice!
One of the boys
Whose name was Bill
Bit his opponent's
Ear until.
The blood came gushing
And with gore
The ice ws dirtied
Even more
Bill said the ref
You sly old fox
Two minutes in
The mourners' box!
Then Bob McGee
(Ah what a man!)
Became embroiled
With a fan
It seems the fan
Had called him sap
And Bob hit him
A gentle -tap
With his stick
Right in the teeth
And they fell on
The Ice beneath
The referee said
Heh heh Bob
You certainly
Are raising Hob!
The period ended
With othe gun
And with a sense
Of duty done
The referee
Forsook the ice
(It really didn't
Look so nice)

Boys, said the ref
This gives me pain
Sweep off the ice
And start again!

He Enjoys This

In a meet characterized by close
matches until the final event, Coach
Cliff Keen's Wolverine wrestlers de-
feated Chicago yesterday afternoon
in the Field House by a 13 1-2 to
10 1-2 score.
John Spoden, the Michigan heavy-
weight, furnished the margin of vic-
tory in the final match by scoring an
easy victory over Frank Pesek, the
Chicago sophomore. Spoden took an
advantage immediately and worked
throughout the match to pin his op-
ponent but failed. His time advan-
tage was 9 minutes, 10 seconds.
Two of the matches went into
overtime, with Max Bernstein of Chi-
cago defeating Jimmy Landrum in
the 118-1b. division, while Jack Har-
rod drew with Bob Kracke, the Chi-
cago sophomore star in the 145-lb.
Bernstein, conceded to be one of
the outstanding wrestlers in the
Conference and generally entered at
126 lbs., found Landrum showing the
form which made him stand out last
year, and the regular match ended
with the Maroon star holding a slim
37 second margin.
In the overtime Bernstein took the
advantage after he broke Landrum's
riqe when Landrum was given the
initial advantage, and held his own
during the second extra period to
gain the referee's decision.
Harrod Draws
In the 145-lb. division Jack Har-
rod completely outwrestled Kracke,
the Chicago star, in the overtime, but
failed to gain sufficient time advan-
tage and the referee was forced to
call the match a draw.
Kracke had piled up a 2:30 advan-
tage during the regulation period but
Fenley Collins, the referee, felt justi-
fied in sending the match into over-
time because of Harrod's superior ag-
gressiveness. Harrod twice just missed
scoring the lone fall of the meet, once
in the regulation period and again in
the overtime.
In the first period Harrod gained a
head-scissors with bar arm which all
but pinned the Maroon but was
forced to break it when Kracke
slipped into a choke hold. Again in
the overtime Harrod just missed pin-
ning Kracke with a key-lock, but the
Chicago star was able to drag him-
self out of the ring.
Rubin Defeats Houser
In the 126-lb. division, Seymour
Rubin, wrestling in his second match
for the Wolverines, repeated the fine
showing which he made in the Cor-
nell meet by defeating Julius Houser,
with an advantage of 2 minutes, 42
The match was one of the fastest
of the meet, the advantage changing
at least six times during the first
four minutes after neither had gained
an advantage in the opening minutes.
Rubin was able to get his scissors
ride to decide the match, however.
Captain Art Mosier of the Wolve-
rine squad met the Chicago captain,
Marvin Bargeman, in the 155-lb. di-
vision, and had little difficulty in
winning with an even three minutes'
Hilto Ponto again drew the tough-
est of the opposition in the 165-lb. di-
vision when he met Ed Bedrava, the
ace of the Maroon squad. Bedrava,
scheduled to wrestle at 175-lbs., went
after Ponto for a fall, but the Ann
Arbor star held off and Bedrava was
forced to accept a 4:40 advantage i
a rough match.
Against Ted Block, the Chicago
entry in the 175-lb. class, Ralph Nea-
fus showed the same form which sent
him through to an All-Campus cham-
pionship last year and a fall victory
in the Ohio State meet by winning
with a 5:48 advantage. Neafus took
an immediate advantage with a bar
arm hold, and continued to work
throughout the match for a fall.
Seymour Freedman failed to break
a nelson hold which kept him on his

face for the first part of the match
and lost in the 135-lb. class against
Norman Howard, brother of the for-
mer Maroon captain. The time ad-'
vantage was 1 minute, 45 seconds.

Here's a stunt to practice - a backward somersault on skis, as

too fast, especially if it doesn't work.

Lambert's Five Expected
To Have Little Trouble
Defeating Wolverines
The Michigan basketball squad, 12'
strong, left on the 9:22 last night for
Lafayette, Ind., where they will meet
the Conference-leading Purdue five
Purdue has had the basketball sit-
uation well in hand this season. They
have won seven games out of eight
starts, one of their victories being
scored at the expense of the Wolve-
rines by a 51-20 score, setting a high
scoring record for the year.
Purdue Favored
With the best team in the Big Ten,
the Boilermakers will be overwhelm-
ing favorites to repeat over the Wol-
verines again tonight. The Maize and
Blue, however, hope to hold Ward
Lambert's quintet to a more reason-
able score than in the game at the
Field House.
Purdue will probably lineup with
Cottom and Eddy at the forward po-
sitions, Fisher at center, and Lowrey
and Shaver at the guards.
Ted Petoskey, Dick Joslin, Chelse
Tomagno, Al Plummer, George Ford,
Fred Allen, John Regeczi, Manny
Fishman, Tom Oliver, Zit Tessmer,
Dick Evans, and "Hi" Hill assembled
at Yost Field House last night at
7:30 and ironed out plays with Coach
Cappon before entraining. Hill, a
guard, is a new man, having become
eligible this semester.
Cappon Selects Team
Cappon annnounced yesterday that
his starting lineup would be Plummer
and Fishman at the forwards, Jos-
lin at center, and Oliver and Tess-
mer at guards. Petoskey and Ford,
suffering from cuts above the eye
received in practice this week, will
sit on the bench, but Cappon in-
timated that they might get in the
game later.
Michigan' will play a wide open
game against Purdue, according to
Cappon. The Boilermaker center
takes a defensive position in line
with the forwards, leaving the op-
posing center to roam where he will.
Cappon hopes Joslin, recently risen
in the star field, will be able to take
advantage of this peculiar defensive

football champions, have hung up
their equipment until next fall after
