Prayer Out ..
LIKE buttoned shoes, Prohibition
and the dodo bird, "Michigan"
football passes finaly into the limbo
of the obsoete. And unless the i-
reverent neurotics who peddle half-
truths and run the government in
the smoky back room, have altered
their formula,' they will greet the de-
mise with such an indignant rasp as,
"Ain't it a doity shame!"
Yesterday, they described the
Michigan system as outmoded,
20 years behind the streamlined
offerses of this era. Today, they
lament in a manner which re-
calls the maudlin Sweeney at the
funeral of his avowed enemy,
Murphy. A friend tried to console
Sweeney by telling him that
Murphy would laugh uproarious-
ly if he knew Sweeney was cry-
ing like a big baby. Whereupon
Sweeney paused a moment,
looked at Murphy's bier and said,
"Yeh, but lie don't know it."
Then be resumed his bawling.
When Fritz Crisler selects his line
coach, whether it be Mike Getto, or
some other non-Michigan man, the
old influence will be gone. No one
then associated with the. Varsity
squad can be accused of being in a
rut from which there's no escape.
Maybe even the old slogan will be
displaced by a "punt, pass and pro-
gress'' saw, consigning the "prayer"
to a more proper department, as the
church. for example.

rJOM H ARMON can run like a
striped .iackass, if anyone
had any doubts about it. In the
intrafraternity relay race during
the Ohio State-Michigan meet
Saturday, Harmon, running as
anchorman for the Phi Delts, lost
his opponents in acloud of dust.
The De Correvont of his high
school days, Varimen was the
storm center of the "Tulane Ex-
pose" during Michigans hectic
football situation last fall.
In the relay, Harmon received the
baton from Frater Bob Cooper, who
won the Chicago Alumni Award as a
freshman and who was touted as
the panacea for Michigan's grid de-
pression. That arouses the hope that
Harmon doesn't get that award this
spring, because it has developed a
"jinx" aspect. Something always
happens to the winner of it. John
Jordan faded, and Cooper had to
quit because of injuries. Only Fred
Trosko, of the recent recipients, sr -
vived the bugaboo.

Her) Kilner's The eGoals
Bring Defeat To Trigon
By IRVING GERSON
Cheered on by Chi Psi's noisy root-
ing section of a half dozen spectators,
Herb Kilner performed the well-
known hat-trick last night, enabling
Chi Psi to eke out a 3-2 win over
Trigon in the semi-finals of the In-
terfraternity Hockey League.
The battle started out at a fast,
high scoring pace, four goals being
chalked up in the first five minutes.
Eugene Klein bagged the first mark-
er of the evening in the opening
minute of play when he rounded the
defense and .sent a low shot past
goalie Brown of the. Chi Psi sextet.
Seconds later, Kilner retaliated
with the first of his three goals, shoot-
ing the puck just inside the post of
the Trigon net. Several plays later, he
gave his team a momentary lead by
flipping' a high shot that caught the
far corner of the opposing goal.
Dick McGarth, burly defenseman of
the Trigon squad put his fraternity
back in the running with a solo dash
down the left wing, outmaneuver-
ing the defense and slipping the puck
past the Chi Psi goalie.
This ended the scoring until mid-
way in the final stanza when Kil-
ner snared the deciding tally while
both teams were a man shy, Mc-
Grath and Lillie having been penal-
ized for roughing.
Although he did not score, Jim
Lovett played a stand-out game for
Trigon, consistently, breaking up
rushes and often leading dangerous
offensive attacks into* Chi Psi terri-
