AMODERN Aesop's Fable: Mer-
cede; La ke and three sons. The
youngest one, 17, was in the state
reformatory for stealing watermelons.
The middle one, 22, was in the state
penitentiary for selling phoney bonds.
The eldest one, 27, was reported in
Spain, fighting for the rebels-a fugi-
tive from justice for forgery. Mer-
cedes Lake was a criminologist.
ADD IRK: To crooning mono-
logists, who persist in saying "My
Dear Mr. Shane:" The title of the
latest swing tune is, "Bei Mir Bist
Du Schoen." It means-"You're
beautiful by me."
And now for a little checkers: Mon-
day afternoon we indulged in a few
games of checkers with that recog-
nized genius of the red-and-black
squares, Cappy Cappon, of whom
there is no whomer among the locker
room sages. Cappy practices up on
Johnny Bronson, ass't trainer, then
with studied blandness invites the
likeliest looking fish to provide the
competition, if any. Well, during the
Monday cogitations over the board,
we caught Cappy napping and nego-
tiated a triple jump and the game.
And the irony of our victory is that
we used a delayed offense, which
Cappon features on, the hardwood. Of
course, candor compels the admission
that Cappy probably had the Ohio
State game that night on his mind,
and with upsets the rule rather than
the exception, it might have proved a
large item.
Lose Four A d Wil?
B ENNIE OOSTERBAAN, who
has seen every quintet Michi
gan will play this season, had this
enlightening comment to make
on Michigan's title chances: "We
have as good a chance as any of
them." Which clarifies the issue
amazingly. Scouting the Minne-
sota-Indiana tip-over, Bennie was
somewhat surprised at the fre-
quent displays of levity on the
part of the Gophers. After two
jolts Minnesota should have
small cause for gaiety when
Michigan reaches the Northland
Saturday night.
This is certainly a screwy league.
Monday night we hovered over the
teletype machine, jocularly predict-
ing the Illini-Purdue and Minnesota-
Indiana upsets. No one in the office,
including us, to be honest about it,
believed that the marvel five, Purdue,
and the super-sensational (refer
Eastern papers during holidays)
Minnesota quintet would lose to Il-
linois and Indiana.
Oosterbaan thinks the team
that wins the Big Ten crown is
susceptible to three defeats.
Ralph Cannon, Chicago Daily
News expert, opined that the v c-
tr might drop four games, and
he made that startling pro-
nouncement before the current
unstable trend.
At any rate, Illinois and Minne-
sota, co-champs last year, are two,
down apice--out of two. Only North-
western and Michigan remain und-
feated, but after the coming week-
end, they, too, might be pondering
this tossa-coin affair. Maybe it wasn't
restraint that prompted Oosterbaan
to temper his opinion. Maybe he's
got something ...

In a nutshell that summarizes theI
Wolverines' position in the hectic
Big Ten basketball setup.
Against the Illini they looked like
world beaters. Facing Ohio, they
started late, sputtered most of the
first half, and finally found their mo-
mentum in the final stanza. They
never hit the pace of the preceding
Saturday night.
Still Riding Officials
Perhaps it was the Buckeye rough-
house. The Ohio contingent, led by
burly Jim McDonald-who apparent-
ly mistook the court for the gridiron
-spared nothing in their efforts to
smother the Wolverines offense. TheyI
centered their attention on Captain
John Townsend, hub of the Michigan
attack. With McDonald flagrantly
violating rule after rule in guarding
Jake, it almost worked.
The officials didn't help much, and
their poor work is also a factor in
the Michigan slump.
Just how much all this has to do
with the team's form reversal Coach
Franklin C. Cappon means to find
out, for if the Wolverines are slipping
they can expect little at the hands of
Minnesota and Wisconsin this week-
end.
Fears Somewhat Alayed
Last night's practice saw the reg-
ulars swing back into action again
after a Tuesday layoff. Every man on
the squad scrimmaged, and the re-
sult apparently allayed Cappon's
fears.
Townsend, Jim Rae, Leo Beebe,
Herm Fishman, Eddie Thomas and
Bill Barclay, the latter two alternat-
ing during the workout, made up the
first squad.
The Varsity was clicking again in
good order. Especially pleasing was
the work of Rae who shows form im-
provement each day.
Team Leave Tomorrow
The lanky Toledo product has ac-
counted for 20 points in two games,
just four less than Townsend. His
passing last night left little to be de-
sired, and his only drawback now
seems to be a natural over-cautious-
ness which should disappear with
added playing experience.
Rae is being used in the pivot spot
more frequently now than at the
outset of the season. With the op-
position ganging up on Townsend,
Michigan's marked man, this is an ex-
pected maneuver.
The team will depart tomorrow at
5:20 p.m. Chicago bound.

Out Regiilarly
With the Varsity hockey squad in
Minneapolis most of this week to do
battle with the Minnesota team, the
freshman puck chasers are having
ample opportunity to work out at the
Coliseum.
George Cook, former Varsity player,
is directing the sessions, two of which
have been held and two more sched-
uled for Thursday and Friday nights.
The practices are continuous two-
hour scrimmages with the skaters
alternating play. Although the brand !
of hockey exhibited is rather poor, un-
merous prospects give signs of de-
veloping into future varsity material,
under the coaching of Coach Eddie
Lowrey.
The squad consists of twelve men,
whom Coach Lowrey picked out at
the last practice before hie left for
Minneapolis. Two of them, both
goalies, are sophomores. They areI
Herb Raskin and Erwin Clahassey,
both from Detroit. Other players
are Jim Andersbn, Windsor, Ontario,
Stan Botwinik, New Haven. Connec-
ticut, Fred Heddie, Ann Arbor, Jim
Lovett, Detroit, and Herb Kilner, De-
troit.
Charlie Ross, Cambridge, Massa-
chusetts, Bob Shier, Ann Arbor, Burt
Stodden, Ann Arbor, Gilbert Samuel-
son, Willoughby, Ohio and Jim Tobin,
Detroit, complete the squad.

The book title aslk "Lit tle man,
what now?" And Herm Fishman, five'
foot 91 2 inch 185 pound Varsity cage
guard from Detroit is answering.
Durable, cool, tough and possessed;
of that intangible known as spirit and
color, he plays a flashy game and has
exceptionally quick reactions, fast
moving legs, and a quick dribble'
which gives him the appearance of
dazzling speed.
Especially valuable in bringing the
ball down the floor, he possesses a
good long shot, and is an excellent
faker both in dribbling and under-
neath the basket.
He scored 74 points in eight ion-
conference games last year and 51 in'
12 conference games, and was placed
on an all-opponent team by the mem-
bers of the Michigan State basketball
squad. A regular last year, he al-
ternated at guard two years ago.
One of the most popular members
of the squad, he's very much of "an
all-round guy." He holds two letters
as a baseball pitcher and led the Con-
ference in earned runs in 1936. An
outstanding tennis player, he won the
State junior championship in 1932.
He thinks Northwestern and Minne-
rota will line up as Michigan's tough-

Veteran Jim Edwards
tells why tobacco experts
prefer Luckies 2 to 1...

"I recently sold 489,000 pounds
of tobacco in one 6 hour day,"
says Mr. J. N. Edwards of Farm-
ville, North Carolina.
"There was a buyer, naturally,
for every one of those 489,000
pounds...But there was as much
difference between the bestgrades
and the inferior, as between a
pretty girl and a homely one..
"At auction after auction, I've
seen Lucky Strike go after the
prettiest lots of tobacco. It's no

all during a seven hour day,
Luckies are still just as easy as
ever on my throat."
Only Lucky Strike offers you
the finest tobacco plus the throat-

protection of the exclusive proc-
ess "It's Toasted". This process
takes out certain irritants found
in all tobacco-even the finest.
Men who know tobacco from
AtoZ-experts like Mr. Edwards
-are surely good judges of ciga-
rettes... Sworn records show that,
