Star Gazing,..
WHAT they must be thinking:
Matt Mann-that his man Haynie
is in tow of some heavenly deity-
who shepherds scholastic black sheep.
Charley Hoyt-that the same
heavenly deity is a phoney and itl
the wrong hemisphere.
Walt Stone-distance ace, shy
honor points-that Charley is right.
Smack Allen-that Mariucci, Go-
pher defensemari, whom he chilled
in the Minneapolis arena a few weeks
ago, will be kittenish in the down-
iCe maneuvering next week-kitten-
ish enough to splinter a shinny bone,
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler-that news-
papermen, like women, always have
the last word.
Dizzy Dean-(remember him-)-
that Branch Rickey, his boss, is pro-
moting the Yankees' salary rebellion.
Pick Dehner-(who paid $5.00 for
a special exam to regain eligibility)
-that it certainly pays to save for a
rainy day . . . (Here, the only way
to erase an "E" is to mesmerize your
prof, chloroform his secretary, use
your gum eraser with haste--and
then, brother, run like hell).
Crisler Advised .
FROM a contrib in Ralph Cannon's
"Campus Canopy" column in the
Chicago Daily News: "I want to take
this opportunity to give Fritz Crisler
a few words of ddvice about how to
live long and happily in Ann Arbor.
Here they are:
"1. Don't become too friendly
with big automobile men.
"2. Don't buy a yacht.
"3. Don't spend your vacation
in. Miami.
"4. Don't bother to become
friendly with Chicago and De-
troit sports writers. Look after
the boys closer home.
"5. Don't write for the news-
papers or magazines.
"6. Don't hire an assistant who
dominates your own job.
"7. 'Have your bridge parties
for the folks on the campus.
"8. Don't build a home larger
than your confreres can afford."
Could Crisler's Polonius be making
allusions to anyone?
* * *
THE WEEK'S largest chuckle: "The
crowd heard a brilliant eulogy of
Harry Kipke by Toastmaster Tod
Rockwell." . . . Next thing you know,
Johnny Lewis and Bill Green will
kiss and make up . . .
The You-Said-It department:
"All of us give thanks they don't
sell soft drinks in bottles around
the grandstands. If I ever heard
a butcher shout, 'soft drinks in
bottles,' I'll run right off the
floor."-Nick Kearns, Big Ten
basketball referee.
Tad Weiman, Earl Martineau and
Campbell Dickson will come to Mich-
igan is a virtual certainty providing
none of them is selected for the

Yale Bulldogs
Didn't DrownI
Without Battle
The Wolverine swimmers hung up
another scalp in their trophy rooml
Wednesday night when they defeat-f
d the Bulldogs from Yale but thel
>attle was so fierce that they almostj
lost their own.
Certainly the- victory was a wel-
come one but was not nearly as de-
cisive as Coach Matt Mann and his
charges would have liked it to be.
The terrific rivalry which existed'
between the two teams before the
meet will probably continue to exist
perhaps even stronger than ever at
least as far as the Eli are concerned.
Haynie By A Foot
It might be said that the entire
meet was decided by the margin of
less than a foot in the 400-yard relay
when Tom Haynie clipped the finish
line just ahead of John Macionis of
Yale. The real cause allowing the
Eli to come within striking distance,
however, was the failure of Walt
Tomski to take the 50-yard sprint l
and the .14 point difference which!
pushed Jack Wolin out of first place i
in the diving.I
Another event, which would have
changed the situation greatly hadI
Haynie been two strokes faster, was
the 220-yard free-style grind whiPh!
Macionis took with a margin of!
Had the Wolverine natators come
through in these events which proved
to be so close, the score would have
read 47-28 instead of 41-34. Such a
margin was anticipated before the
meet; in fact, that is the pre-meet
score prediction that Matt Mann cal-
culated early this week.
Something Wrong Ilere
Comparison of times in the meett
and those credited to the swimmers
on other occasions indicate that
something was wrong. The winning
time for the 50 was 23.7 and for the
220, 2:13.6, both being slow for Yale's
fast pool. Tomski has negotiated the
50 consistently close to 23 seconds
and Haynie's average for the 220 is
considerably under his effort at Yale'
The Varsity moves to Columbus l
next to tangle with the Ohio State
Buckeyes on Saturday night.

ter by Tom Jeswer, Bill Buchanan
produced a stretch sprint that nipped
Jester at the tape to add another five
for Michigan in the 880. Former half-
miler Doug Hayes never relinquished
the lead which he annexed at the gun
to finish the 440 in 51.7 with Clarke
of Michigan and Wright of State
coming up fast.
A listless one-mile run produced
little of excitement after the first{
lap when Michigan's Harold Davidson
moved past Frey of State to take over
a lead which he never relinquished,
stretching it to 15 yards and coming
past the post under blankets in
4:23.3. Greer of State, gave the Spar-
tans their only first place when he
beaded Bill Watson by a full stride
in the 60, tieing the meet mark of
6.3 set by Sam Stoller last year.
Kingsley Clears 13 Feet
Acting Captain Jimmie Kingsley
missed 13 feet 6 inches by the width
of a hand but was credited with 13
feet to give Michigan a win in the
pole vault leaving State's Lodo Ha-
berle tied for second with Michigan
SoPIomore Dave Cushing. Wes Al-
len, Negro high jump star, leaped
6 feet 2 inches for first in the high
jump in which Watson took second
and Carl Culver tied for third with
Moore of State to leave the Spartans
within a half point of a shut-out.
Despite the fact that it was little
more than a warm-up Michigan's
one-mile relay team carded 3:25.1 for
the distance. Bill Aigler started the
race giving the stick to Miller with a
ten yard lead which had grown to 75
!yards by. the time the baton had
)assed through Abbott and Hayes who
opened up full blast despite the large
lead to turn in the time which broke
the third meet record.

Big Bill Watson paeed Charlie

over Michigan State last night
with an impressive triple-threat
performance. Watson broke his
own Field House record in the

Paris Victory
Shows Sextet

Cappy Cappon halted practice yes-
terday afternoon for the second time
in as many days and huddled his
forces in the center of the Field House
Cappy had a message to reiterate.
The sum and substance of it was this:
"Gentlemen," said Cappy, "we're
playing life and death basketball.'
When we make a shot we get a little
life; when we miss, we're dead weight.
We've been spending too much time
complaining when they don't drop.
In short, we're discouraged."
Let's Stop Worrying
"Remember," continued Cappy,
"we're playing basketball because
we like it. Let's play the game as a
game and play i for all it's worth. A
missed shot is no catastrophe and
don't ever forget that a .500 average is
exceptional. If we miss four, let's look
forward to making the next four, and
not waste time in worrying how far
off we are."
Michigan hit a new low after the
Iowa defeat last Monday. Emotional-
ly keyed to hit the Conference home
stretch in their quest for the elusive
cage title, the Hiawkeye loss was a
terrific let-down. Tuesday's practice
might aptly have been transferred to
the city morgue. The environment
would have been admirable.
Cappy Speaks Again
Wednesday they started out in the
same old way. Every time a shot
missed the old grumble and groan
started. Chatter was null. Pep was
void. That's why Cappy stepped in
with his words of wisdom.
The lecture of Wednesday helped
matters somewhat. The gloomshowed
signs of lifting, and last night's fin-
ishing touch turned the trick.
The boys started to hit again. Tie
old pepper returned. They began to
tlidd one another, to talk it up onec
more. It was a relief from former
solemnity, and a welcome sign in
sight of the two engagements of the
Gophers, Varsity Tied
Minnesota, who shares a fourth
place slot with Michigan in the Con-
ference standings and Wisconsin, fifth
place occupant, are the visitors.
r The Gophers, whom the Varsity
whipped in a brilliant second half
n rally January 16, have shown a form
a reversal after an early slump. They
opened the season with three straight
losses, but the Conference co-champ

Bello was uncanny at times. TheI
Paris defense was pulled out of po-
sition again and again leaving the
net clear. But to no avail. England
had the entrance blocked. And not
content with that, he even dashed
far out on the ice to smother the
puck making sure that Michigan's
Big Three wouldn't have a chance atl
the goal.
The work of the veteran Wolver-
ine defensemen, Captain Bob Simp-
son and Bucko Smith, was outstand-
ing. Paris found it extremely hard to
break through for a shot. The for-
wards helped a great deal on defense
by prompt back-checking. And
Spike James took care of any at-
'empts that got through.
The stick-handling and shifty

the first trio. The second line com-

ternating at wing, showed consider-
able improvement over past perfor-
