Variety Is Keynote Of Program At 1-M Open House



Many Campus
Finals Slated
For Big Show
Students, Faculty Entered
In Twenty-Two Events;
Ice Finals At Coliseum
Students, faculty members, and
visiting experts will take part in 21
different sports tonight at the intra-
mural building in the department of
intramural sports' eleventh annual
Open House, The activities start at
7:30 p.m. and the three-hour show
is free to the general public.
Finals in basketball will culminate
more than three months of competi-
tion between fraternity and inde-
pendent teams in three leagues. Theta
Xi and Sigma Chi will battle it out
for the "A" league championship of
the Greek lettermen, while in the
"B" league, Sigma Chi will be de-
fending the title it won last year
against Phi Delta Theta. A one-
point win over the Eskymos last week
has given the Badgers the opportuni-
ty to tangle with the Senators for the
independent crown.
Championship Hockey Game
The all-campus tennis champion
will be determined when Tom Gamon
meets Lawton Hammet. And at the
Coliseum tonight when the activities
at the I-M building are over, the Hia-
watha Club, winners of the indepen-
dent league, tangle with Phi Kappa
Psi, fraternity champions for the
hockey supremacy of the campus.
Shuffle hockey makes its bow here
tonight when a group of boys from
Flint demonstrate the game on. the
gym floor. Another innovation at
Open House will be a demonstration
of fly and bait casting by Charles
Wilcox, state champion. And for
those followers of Isaac Walton who
haunt the trout streams, Dr. Doyle
Jamison will be on hand to give in-
struction in fly-tying.
Big Ten Champs On Card
In the pool Matt Mann's /Big Ten
champions are scheduled to go
through their paces with a strong
freshman contingent. Fraternity men
will contribute their share to the
water show when they vie with each
other for the campus championship.

several of his varsity stars have vol-
unteered their services in the driving
nets for the benefit of golfers who
would like a few valuable pointers.
Volleyball Listed
The Chinese students, who for the
past few years have been turning out
winning volleyball teams, will oppose
a picked team selected for the pur-
pose of trying to upset their winning
ways. An all-star fraternity team is
also slated to battle it out with a team
of the best independent volleyballers.
Boxing and wrestling will be al-
ternated in a ring set up in the cen-
ter of the floor, and exponents of
the manly arts will battle it out for
the all-campus wrestling and boxing
Best Combinations
Sought By Lowrey
With the hockey season over Coach
Eddie Lowrey is working out his
freshmen players tonight and Friday
for the last time with the varsity
players who will return next year.
Various line combinations are being
tried out in order to get some kind
of an idea as to which men work to-
gether best.
Varsity men are not showing any
mercy to the frosh, and are handling
them quite roughly. The yearlings,
however, are handing back as much
as they receive.
One of the most heartening sights
to Coach Lowrey is the way goalie
"Spike" James takes a hand in cor-
recting the shooting flaws of those
players trying to get the puck past

Rumors . . . And Facts
arisen anent Charley Hoyt's res-
ignation, some of it so pitifully dis-
cordant, that further elucidation
seems apropos.
Here are a few rumors and a few
facts that may clear up prevailing
1. That Hoyt's sole induce-
ment at Yale was pecuniary.
No one will deny this more vehe-1
mently bhan Hoyt himself. In for-;
mulating his statement, he took ex-
treme precautions to state clearly
that his new position had so many
attractive features that he could not
C decline the bid. The facilities at New
Haven, the character of his position,
and the staff assistance that he will
receive are only a few of the rewards
that he will reap besides a monetary
2. That the impending re-
gency election motivated the de-
This has been denied in all quart-
ers. It was rumored that a Detroit
paper was planning a "reliably re-
ported" story to this effect. Yet when
one of the wire service men tried to
get an affirmation or a quote to pro-
tect himself when the story broke,
he received severe rebuffs from every-
one contacted. While this is within
the realm of possibility, it is unlikely
that any administrative alignment
could undermine the position of the
coaching staff's most respected mem-
3. That Michigan either failed
or refused to meet Yale's bid.
This has no factual baas. Michi-
gan's Board in Control of Athletics
had no opportunity to tender a coun-
ter-bid for the simple reason that
Charley decided to transfer after his
New Haven conference with Yale of-
ficials. Convinced that the Yale of-
fer was much too attractive to pass
up, Charley resigned, and the Board
had no alternative but to accept with
An interesting angle on this af-
fair is the University's policy on
salaries, which pertains to faculty
members and coaches alike. Fac-
ulty salaries are classified, and
when a valuable member of the
University reaches the zenith or
"ceiling," he can be paid no more
unless he shows a competitive bid
from another institution.
Thus a member of any depart-
ment, despite his contribution, will
remain at the same salary level per-
manently unless he can produce an
offer for his services from another
The obvious weakness in this sys-
tem is clearly demonstrated in the
Hoyt case. It seems to me, from a
purely pecuniary standpoint, that if
Charley is worth enough today for
the Board to boost his salary, he was
worth that much five years ago, com-
petitive bid or no competitive bid.
READER John C. Schwarzwalder
pens a note asking why we don't
clear up this Francis Heydt affair.
Heydt, former Big Ten backstroke
champion, transfered from Iowa to
Michigan this semester. Among oth-
er protests, Mr. Schwarzwalder hand-
ed a staff member a "slick" piece
written by the Ohio State Journal's
anti-Michigan columnist, Bob Hooey.
Schwarzwalder writes: "In it
Mr. Hooey asserted that Francis
Heydt. . . had approaelied Ohio
State officials with a request for
financial aid in return for which
the aforesaid Mr. Heydt guaran-
teed to bring the aforesaid back-
stroke championship to the
banks of the Scioto.
"The offer was regretfully de-
clined by Ohio State on the
ground that they could do no
more for a swimmer than Iowa,
and on the further grounds of
professional ethics.

"The column then stated that
Mr. Heydt has now transfered
his registration to the U. of Mich-

igan, and it implied that the fi-
nancial aid neither Iowa nor
Ohio State could or would give
was forthcoming at Michigan."
"Michigan students are -en-
titled to know the answers to
these questions."
The Daily, feeling the same as Mr.
Schwarzwalder, investigated this im-
mediately after Heydt's registration.
The swimmer himself has denied
that he ever approached Ohio State
about financial remuneration and al-
so that he is receiving any aid here.I
Matt Mann reiterated this asser-
tion stating that he realized the storm
of protest Heydt's transfer would
bring and would have been satisfied
for the Iowan to remain in Iowa City.
Still we investigated, and junior
Mel Fineberg wrote to Dave Armbrus-
ter, Iowa coach seeking to get a sub-
stantiation of the Heydt-Mann
The Iowa coach dropped a short
note saying that he did not care to
comment and advising us to see Mr.
Yost, who at that time was out of
town. Again we wrote and again Arm-
bruster was non-committal. Wrote
"The whole matter . .. involves
correspondence from Major Grif-
fith to Mr. Schroeder, Mr.
Schroeder to Major Griffith, Ma-
jor Griffith to Mr. Yost and to
Professor Aigler, and our own
Professor Leib to your Professor
Griffith is the Big Ten, commis-
sioner of athletics; Schroeder the
athletic director at Iowa; and Leib
the faculty director of athletics.
At Lafayette this week-end, Fine-
berg contacted Armbruster personal-
ly, but the Iowa coach refused to
comment any further.
Professor Aigler, paradoxically
enough, has received a letter from
Professor Leib completely exonerat-
ing Michigan of any unethical prac-
tice in this matter.
Mr. Yost.is investigating the mat-
ter. So is this reporter in collabora-
tion with swimming chronicler Fine-
berg. The answer will come, Mr.
Schwarzwald, although, like the pro-
verbial dentist, we may have to em-
ploy anesthesia.

Well satisfied with the progress
made by the hitters in their two-
week stay in the batting cages, and
confident that the pitchers' arms are
rounding into shape, Coach Ray
Fisher cast an anxious eye outdoors
yesterday afternoon, and returned
with a welcome "It won't be long
"I hope to get out by the 25th this
year" says Ray. That would give us
about 10 days before the trip. Of
course I've already got a good idea
who's going to play, but I'll have to
see them in competition before mak-
ing any final judgment."
Six Regulars Return
Picking a starting line-up may not
be too difficult a task, for as a back-
bone Fisher has six regulars return-
ing from last year's nine.
Hardest hit by graduation was the
pitching crew, with the top three
men, Herm Fishman, Burt Smith and
Ed Andronik among the missing. Re-
placing right handers Smith and An-
dronik may be easy, with juniors
Jack Barry and Russ Dobson groomed
for their roles.
Fast Ball Improves
Barry was the team's relief artist
last year and with an improved fast
ball, plus his experience should be a
big winner. Dobson, possessing more
potentialities than any man on the
squad, never really got going last
season because of a sore arm, but re-
portedi this spring in excellent shape.
Sophomores Lyle Bond and Les Vei-
gel will also figure.
The lefthanded picture presents a
sadder story. Fishman was the big
winner for the Fishermen last spring
with nine victories; including four
shut-outs to his credit. On hand are
three promising southpaws, John

Heering, Dean DuBois and Bruce
Randall. None of them is a Fishman
but any one or all may come through
with the unexpected.
Veteran Catcher
There isn't much chance for an in,
experienced catcher this year. Leo
Beebe, two year veteran, will be hard
pressed to win the first string posi-
tion from a greatly improved Forest
Evashevski. Sophomore Clare Bergs-
ma appears to be an excellent receiv-
er, but not enough of a batting threat
to rate first team consideration.
Infield fixtures are Elmer Gedeon,
Pete Lisagor and Capt. Walt Peckin-
paugh. Gedeon will play first, but
the latter two may be shifted from
their respective second and third base
positions, depending upon how the
rest of the pack come through. Vet-
eran Earl Srmith, sub for Don Brewer
at short last year, will have to beat
.out a great soph prospect, Bill Step-

pon for the fourth post, while sopho-
mores Art Bergeson and Mike Sofiak
can't be counted out.
The outfield will miss last year's
captain "Butch" Kremer, who was the
second leading batter in the Confer-
ence, but Fisher can still present an
all-veteran array in Danny Smick,
Charley Pink and Fred Trosko.
Smick and Pink were regulars last
season while Trosko played in-every
game as a reserve for one of the top
trio and is one of the most improved
players on the squad this spring.

Factory in a Meadow

A DOZEN small Ford plants dot the
fields and meadows within fifty
miles of Dearborn. We call them the
"village industries." Their windows
are bright in the sun, and their
wheels turn to the harnessed energy
of once lazy streams.
Many of their workers are farm-

neat rows beside the plants. Inside,
with the newest, most modern ma-
chines, they build Ford parts.
With the money earned, they buy
that fertile forty just east of the pas-
ture lot-families go to school-
houses grow wings-barns are filled
with provender and sheds with back-

They raise food for themselves and
feel secure. They know that if slack
times come, farm and garden will
still provide employment.
Life is pleasant in the villages.
Working conditions are almost ideal.
Men do better work and are proud
of their contribution to Ford quality.
