WHAT WILL HAPPEN if a co-ed
athlete turns out for a Varsity
squad and shows the ability to gain
a regular post? Big Ten officials be-
came conscious of the fact that. they
may have to face that problem in the
near future when a woman golfer was
asked to report for the Illinois fresh-
man team. She did so on the invita-
tion of the coach but was promptly
persuaded not to by the director of
athletics. Nevertheless the problem
remains. There are feminine golfers,
tennis players and divers who could
hold their own in Varsity competi-
tion at some Big Ten schools. Some
day an intrepid female will turn out
and cinch a place on some team.
Then what? "Cappy" Cappon, assis-
tant director of athletics, admitted
yesterday the question had him
stumped. He knows of no Confer-
ence ruling for or against. So I guess
there is nothing to do but wait for
some courageous lady to come to the
front and cause a test case.
Sherf, A Blusher ? ? ?
TUESDAY morning's Detroit Free
Press reporting the departure of
Johnny Sherf with the Red Wings
characterized the former Michigan
hockey captain time and again as a
"blushing schoolboy." Freddie Bues-
ser, who has covered hockey for the
last three years, and I have been
wondering where the 'Calumet "wild
man" (as Fred puts it) acquired the
tendency toward facial coloration. He
certainly didn't have it when he left
here, and major league hockey com-
petiticn seems hardly the place to
pick up blushing. Otherwise Doc
Holst (id all right in his report on
Johnny. He told of "the fastest
skater on the Wing squad," "a bullet
shot that rises slowly like a Lou Geh-
rig single," "a movie type who is the
idol of the fans everywhere,' and "an
ability to sweep along the boards and
in on a goal keeper like a comet."
Anyway, Johnny may get his big,
chance in this world championship
series and make up for two fair years
persistent injuries have brought him.
Then watch Coach Eddie Lowrey
beam in righteous pride.

New York Rangers defeated the De-

Square Garden tonight to gain their
fifth successive National Hockey

Wings Finally Score
Then a five-man Detroit surge
carried the puck into New York ice.
The Rangers were unable to clear
the disc fast enough and Sid Howe,
converting passes from Gordon Pet-
tinger and Ebbie Goodfellow, beat
Kerr on a close-in shot. Davey waved
his arms in disgust as he turned
