One of the most encouraging signs
in Michigan's athletic situation was
the interest aroused by Wednesday
night's basketball game in Kalama-
zoo. Not since the days before foot-
ball games were broadcast and the
Wolverines were playing out of town
have there been so many telephone
calls to The Daily office for a score.
In fact, so constant was the ring-
ing of the 'phone bells and so con-
stant the question "How'd the bas-
ketball team come out?" that we
substituted "Michigan 26, Kalamazoo
25," for our usual salutation. One of
the most pleasant duties in the world
is telling people good news. So ye
editore supplanted one of the wilting
sophomores before a phone to spread
the glad tidings.
Frankly, you would thin. the bas-
ketball team had swum the Helle-
spont in tandem formation or ex-
ecuted a perfect blocking play atop
the Washington monument from the
enthusiastic reception given the news
of the game.One sweet-voiced girl
gasped slightly as we literally flung
the score in her face without any of,
the customary telephonic preamble,'
then purred excitedly, "Oh, is that
right?" Upon being assured that it
was she said "Good, good!" and
thanked us ever so sweetly before
saying good night.!
A nother time a quiet-voiced lady
(a faculty wife we decided mentally)

told her and said "Oh, isn't that just

Minnesota Is Jinx
In hockey, the Wolverines would
have experienced a very successful'
season had they been able to beat the
Minnesota jinx. The Gophers handed
Michigan four of its six defeats, three
by the margin of a single goal. Capt.-
elect Johnny Sherf led the Wolverines
in scoring, making 23 of his team's
total of 42 goals.
Coach Fisher's baseball team was
a hard-hitting nine but erratic field-
ing forced it to accept third place
in the final Conference standings.
Two Wolverines, Whitey Wistert and
Ted Petoskey were recruited from the
Michigan nine by the Cincinnati club
