Louis Wenger, former Ann Arbor
High star, made Normal's first bas-
ket. Two more counters by Gee, and
Tamagno and two fouls each by Rud-
ness and Gee brought the score up
to 21 to 2 when Cappon replaced the
entire first team with a reserve quin-
tet. The Varsity scored its 21 points
in approximately 10 minutes and
maintained a perfect free throw rec-
ord, connecting seven times in as
many attempts.
Two long shots by Captain Hanne-
man and Walter Good completed the
Ypsilanti scoring for the first half
while the reserves made six points
on two baskets by Jablonski and
Herm Fishman and a pair of free
throws by Jablonski. The score when
the gun sounded to end the first half,
was 27 to 6.
Coach Cappon started his first
stringers in the second period, but
was forced to substitute at the end
of two minutes of play when John
Gee suffered a knee injury while
fighting for the ball under the Mich-
igan basket. The hurt was not ser-
iots and will not prevent the Varsity
(center from practicing next week.
Play in the second half was dull
and saw the first five of the Varsity
in action for only two minutes.- The
Hurons picked up 11 points, two of
which came on the Jablonski "boner,"
while the Wolverine reservesa scored
but 10.
Manny Slavin and Earl Meyers were
especially unfortunate in their shoot-
ing, when time and time again shots
rallied around the rim of the basket
only to again drop into play without
making a score.

but also an even more improved Gee.
The game, wiiich was the first at
home this season, brought back recol-
lections of last year's Michigan Nor-
mal game- when Gee made his first
appearance in Yost Field House. The
crowd that saw that game watched
an awkward giant, unused to the
game of basketball, try to play the
difficult pivot post which he was at
the time unfitted for.
Last night, however, there was not
a single note of derision or criticism,
but instead only praise. Showing co-
ordination and even some polish,
John dominated the center jump,
passed like a veteran, took the ball
off the backboard with ease, and
scored two pivot shots inside of four
When he reported for his first cage
practice his freshman year, he knew
practically nothing about the game.
Coach Ray Fisher worked on him,
taught him to pivot, pass, and guard.
John worked hard and made great
strides. He had not finished growing
and had real difficulty mastering the
essentials of the game.

... Goldman was chosen by the Miraclean Institute of the
United States and Canada as exclusive user of Miraclean in
Ann Arbor. And the men and women who have adopted
Miraclean for the cleaning, beautification, and preservation of
their clothes, are agreed that there is no finer dry cleaning
at any price. Why was Goldman picked above all other clean-
ers? . . . for the reason, pure and simple, that Goldman was
Ann Arbor's foremost cleaner . . . and quite naturally, a
leader is best able to make a product of an institution or manu-
facturer a quicker and more certain success. For 25 years
Goldman has ever been on the alert to be FIRST in all the
departments of good dry cleaning . . . Goldman's position
today proves that sincere efforts always have their just reward.
