ent to me--if but slowly-that the
study of microscopical pathology and
the art of column writing demand
that the mind function in two en-
tirely unrelated spheres. But it seems
that some few weeks ago I promised
glibly to write some sort of a column
for you this week; and as recently
as this evening your Mr. Herb Lev has
convinced me that it should be for
Tuesday's page.
So here I am. The clock says 12:15
after midnight and I am somewhere
between an adenoma of the, thyroid
gland and what appears to be fatty
infiltration of the pancreas with fi-
brosis of the Isles of Langerhans.
Of course, Bud, if I keep this up, it
will be worse than no column at all,
and I'd hate to lose for you any
faithful readers. But what shall I
talk about? Mr. Lev says it will be
swimming or "he'll miss his guess."
So, rather than have Herb do that,
I'll see if I can't intensify the fog
in my cerebral cortex to a heavy dew

It was quite a showing the Michi-
gan swimmers made last Saturday
night, nicht wahr, Bud? Yale got
two more points than Matt predicted
the Eli would, but deep down in his
heart I think he is a little sorry the
score was so one-sided. I really do.
No coach likes to wallop the opposi-
tion like that unless he has murder in
his heart or hates the very entrails of
the opposing coach. Matt doesn't
think along those lines toward any
opponent, least of all Bob Kiphuth
and Yale.
You know, that feud that Kiphuth
and Mann were and are supposed to
be waging is mostly a thing of news-
papermen's imagination. Of course,
Matt disagrees with Bob's idea of a
gymnastic workout for his sWim-
mers daily during the active season,
but that's about the extent of the
alleged emnity.

down at the Intramural Building,
even if Mr. Yost sometimes wishes
he could do it. "The Old Man al-

boys," Matt used to tell me when he'
carted me across the countryside, so

Old Man, Matt, don't forget that. The
Old Man is proud of any winning
team - and the swimmers have
brought him more honors in the last
several years than any other Wolver-
ine squad. (Hi, Bill). Of ' course
swimming in the midwest will never
reach the heights of popularity it has
attained in the east. And Matt, hav-
ing passed through the Ivy League
on his way here from England, some-
times regrets that.
To get back to rivalries. It's too
bad that most of the Big Ten swim-
ming coaches would like to push Matt
in the pool every time they see him.
I've sensed that feeling at every Con-
ference meet I've attended. Call it
natural jealousy-but it is much too
serious to be passed over lightly.
And while we're thinking along
'these lines, Bud, you'd best send Mr.
Fineberg or some other capable and
partisan writer down to Columbus
this weekend. There is going to be
much more take place than a mere
swimming meet between Michigan
and Ohio State. And it's not going to
be a friendly affair-at least from
the standpoint of the powers that be
around the Buckeye pool. Better
have a man down there to get "this
side" of the doinas.
Thanks, Bud,

Excell On Gotham Track
Ralph Schwarzkopf set a new
Michigan record and Elmer Gedeon
bettered an existing world mark in the
Millrose A.A. games Feb. 4 but each
wouAd up with a third place.
achwarzkopf ran a beautiful race
in the two-mile invitation event
finishing in the estimated time of
19:08.5, behind Notre Dame's Greg
Rice, who won, and Don Lash, who
nosed out the Wolverine star by less
than a foot for second place. The
old record, 9:11.6, was Schwarzkopf's,
made in the outdoor Conierence meet
last year.
Gedeon finished behind Roy Sta-
ley and Larry O'Connor in the 60
yard high hurdles. Staley set a new
world's record in winning and offi-
cials estimated that all three of the
hurdlers surpassed the old record.
Fate Still Frowns
On Bennie's Team
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's luck
has run true 'to form over the final
exam period.
As if it weren't bad enough to
have Jim Rae and- Charley Pink out
with bad backs, Bennie tossed a
shovel of snow too high and wound
up in a plaster cast himself and is
still standing up and sitting down
quite gingerly. 'Then the grades came
in and it is reported that veteran
Dave Wood and sophomore Herb
Brogan have fallen below the scho-
lastic mark although Brogan still
has hopes of a reprieve.
Finally, second string center John
Nicholson came down with a case of
jaundice and is now confined in the
Health Service. Dr. William E. Brace
who is in charge of the case says "he'll
be out in about a week. It's nothing
serious but just something he'll have
to stay and be treated for."
Bennie is now investigating re-
ports that an infectious Australian
fruit-fly was sighted in the northern
part of Luce County last week,

Varsity Cagers
Jim Rae Leads Michigan
To 30-25_Triumph
With lanky Jim Rae back in the
lineup to lead the attack, Michigan's
Varsity cagers turned back an aggres-
sive Michigan State quintet for the
second time this season Saturday
night at Lansing by scoring a 30
to 25 triumph.
Sensing a victory because of Michi-
gan's recent slump and two-week
lay-off the Spartans turned on the
heat before the record crowd of 6,200
and plagued the Wolverines through-
out as the lead shifted five times.
With Rae heading the offensive,
Michigan forged to a 17-11 lead at
halftime after a period featured by
Tom Harmon's gridiron tactics which
resulted in the knockout of guard
Leo Callahan.
State scored 13 points in quick
order as the second half got under
way but then the Wolverine five be-
gan to click once more and at the
same time braked the Spartan of-
fensive to finish with their five point
The game was a roughouse affair
from the start and by the time hos-
tilities ceased, 25 personal fouls were
in the score books. Friendly rivals
Frank Shidler and Charley Pink
were both banished with four fouls
against them.
Rae led the scorers with a total of
eight points and was followed by
forwards Charley Pink and Tom Har-
mon who chalked up six each. For
the Spartans, guard Max Dalrymple
paced the attack with seven points.

Combs Joins
Wrestlers, Set
For State Tilt,
here's a Michigan athlete who
was sitting on the sidelines all last
semester just itching to get in there
and show his wares. It's not because
he's a reserve that he has *failed to
see action, but- because he has been
grappling perhapsharder than he
ever did on the mat to catch up on
his ever-elusive studies.
His name is Bill Combs, 155 pound-
er, and as a result of weathering the
siege of final examinations, he will
get his first chance to bring home
the bacon for Cliff, Keen's Varsityr
wrestling team when it meets Michi-
gan State Saturday at the Field
House seeking its fourth straight win
of the season.
Oklahomia Bill' Is Wary ,
On the mat. "Oklahoma Bill" is a
wary and deceptive young man who
possesses an enormous amount of
spontaneous energy. Ranked as the
outstanding member of last year's
fine array of freshman grapplers,
Combs delights in administering the
"coup de bataille" in close to split-
second action. During a heated mo-
ment in a close battle with his rival,
Bill will suddenly relax his entire
body, wait for his opponent to let up
the slightest bit, and then drive him
to the mat for the kill almost before
the bewildered victim knows what
it's all about.
Takes All Comers
Last year, "Oklahoma Bill" wasn't
content with plastering his frosh
teammates all 'over the mat, so he
took on Harland Danner of the Vars-
ity in a 155-pound match. He gave
the agile Danner one of the few beat-
ings he has ever suffered, and to
make it unanimous, repeated the per-
formance in a later match. Danner
subsquently won the Big Ten 155-
pound title, which should make Bill
look pretty fair.
Despite his ineligibility of last
semester, Combs continued to make
known his ability when in the All-
Campus tournament he stepped all
the way up to the heavyweight class
wrestling at 150 pounds to pin team-
mates Joe Kosisczki, 200 pounder, and
Marshall Loughin, 190 pounder, with
lightning-like rapidity, and then went
on to take the title by throwing foot-
ball guard Fred Olds all over the mat.

I am one of those fellows that likes the


things to be right. Take for instance my laundry. There's nothing I get a big-

ger kick out of than putting on a freshly

laundered shirt. I happen to be one of


those fellows that appreciates a perfectly laundered collar, and I know it's
going to be that way if it comes from the laundry The Laundry picks my soiled
clothes up and delivers them. That saves me the trouble of taking my laundry
to the post office and saves mother trouble too. That's another thing I enjoy.
Well, perhaps I am fussy but I like my clothes laundered the LAUNDRY way.
