is Saber Novice
champ Of State
His fencing experience limited to
only three years, Jack Briner, '37,
has proven himself quite an expon-
nent of the ancient thrust and parry
Last Sunday Briner, who hails
from Grosse Pointe, entered the nov-
ice division of the state fencing tour-
nament held at Wayne University
and came away with the first place
in the saber bracket. He had to meet
swordsmen from Wayne, the Grosse .
Pointe Fencing Club, the La Salle
de Tuscan Club, and the Turnverein
organization of Detroit in order to
win, but his training, even though
short, showed itself to advantage in
taking all his matches.
Since beginning the sport, Jack has
entered all the tournaments he could
in order to get the practice, and aside
from the practice he also took a
number of places. At Wayne once
before, he placed second in the foil
in the state prep tourney, and last
year he took first in all three fencing
events of the junior all-campus meet-I
ing. The three included the foil,
epee, and saber.
At the recent Detroit meet when it
came time to draw for matches Jack
found that somehow or other he was
to fight with the foil and the epee
at the same time. Of course that old
axiom jumped up and said it couldn't
be done. Briner did it but in a sort
of modified manner.
First he fought on the epee line for
six consecutive matches before losing
out and then, without resting, he
stepped over onto the foil roll and met

supporting roles are acted by John
Mills, Desmond Tester, Leslie Perrins,
John Laurie and Martita Hunt.
four more opponents before he fell-
ten consecutive meetings, not count-
ing the seven straight wins that it
took him to capture the saber trophy.
Only.one touch kept him from
reaching the finals in the foils and
that came from a Grosse Pointe
friend with whom he had started
fencing. This was a little odd for
he was considered his best with the
foils while his pal was thought better
with the heavier sabers.
Wainted To Make Team,
The reason he had in mind for
taking up fencing was to make the
Michigan varsity team. That was
just before he became a sophomore
and when Michigan had a representa-
tive squad. After learning the rudi-
ments in Detroit he came here with
high hopes only to find that fencing
was dropped from the list of varsity
With former members of the team
and others he worked out at the I-M
building daily and whenever a chance1
appeared the group which adopted a
name, the Ann Arbor Fencing Club,
entered the tournament. The fen-
cers have a meet scheduled with Wes-
tern State Teachers College at Kala-
