At Fort Lauderdale they'll encamp
at the Amphitrite, a unique hotel in
the lagoon. The Amphitrite is a
former battle ship which was used
to guard New York harbor during
the war. After the mass mania was
over they sent the boat to Fort Lau-
derdale. It was towed into the la-
goon, a superstructure was built up-
on it, and it became a first class

;Don't start thinking that our bene-
ficient athletic associaion is pro-
viding this trip. Gentlemen, you don't
know our athletic association. Each
swimmer pays his own way and the
Christmas rendezvous costs him ex-
actly 40 simoleins. Try that on your
travel agency some time.
;The boys arent making this magni-'
ficent excursion for ordinary pur-
poses. You don't have to be a swim-
mer to do that. In Florida, all you
have to do is be a man, and you are
immediately a superman. The fem-
inies outnumber the masculines con-
- Matt Mann and Co. are embarking
on a training trip. They'll swim in
a superb 50 meter pool at Fort Lau-
derdale, and that's an important
aspect of the trip. You see the Olyin-
pic pool is 50 meters, and this gives
the natators an opportunity to time

"Well," sighs Matt, brushing a
aoth off his swimming trunks,
"there are many. Its' a great

there in that sun, and It does
things for them. Then, too, it
gives us a line on certain of our
competitors. There are 300 swim-
mers and 50 coaches at Fort

of the best swimmers in the c untry.
They go down there thinking these
newspaper stars are unbeatable but
they find out they're only swimmers.
"The coaches have a lot of meet-
ings and talk things over. We take
the boys down to Miami and show
them around-dog races, golf tourna-
ments, horse races, and other things.
The coaches have a big deep sea
fishing trip, and if they don't want to

the trip, as always, and there'll be a
fleet of cars trailing them down. Prof.
Elmore Pettyjohn will drive down a

Phi Delta Theta, defending chan-

each amassed a total of 16 points to
tie for chainpionship honors in the
finals of the Interfraternity Wrest-

Yost Field House.
Chi Psi, finishing second last year,
was nosed out of this spot but ended

Michigan will play Notre Dame to-
morrow night. but yesterday the Irish
quintet visited the Field House in
spirit if not in the flesh. Coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan's third team, directed
by scout Ray Courtright, imperson-
ated the South Bend boys and gave
the Varsity a look at the attack they
must face in some 36 hours.
With the roles of forwards Sadow-
ski and Riska being played by Bob
Palmer and Freddie Trosko, the Notre
Dame offense broke through for a
few scores but found the going rath-
Badgers Defeat Irish
The boys hope they can do the
same thing tomorrow and are taking
some consolation from the fact that
Wisconsin managed to stop the Irish
last Saturday by a 45-39 score. Coach
Ray Courtright, who scouted that
game, is not so optimistic however.
"Notre Dame got off to a bad start
or they would have beaten Wiscon-
sin," he asserts. "They have a very

condition, I don't think I've seen a

"Riska and Sadowski are fine play-
ers," he went on. "It ought to be a
Strong Defense Needed
The fact that the tight Wisconsin
defense turned the tide of victory
their way indicates that Michigan
may profit by the same advantage.
In the Michigan State game, the
Wolverine defense was especially good
and if it can smother the Irish for-
wards tomorrow Coach Oosterbaan
might ring up victory number two.

lars to a 40 to 29 triumph over the

CLEVELAND, O., Dec. 13 -(IP)-
The University of Michigan hockey1
team, a Co-champion in the Big Ten
last season defeated Western Reserve1
University's Red Cats of the Ohio-
Penn Intercollegiate League 3 to 1 in
an intersectional game at the Cleve-1
land Arena here tonight. A near
capacity crowd of 7,500 was on hand
for the contest.
Les Hilberg, captain and defense-
man, was the big noise for the Wol-
verines, scoring two of his team's
goals and getting an assist on the
Reserve played a great defensive
game to hold the Wolverines scoreless
in the opening period. Chadwick and
Everett Doran featured with some
pretty stick work.
Soon after the second session got
under way Les Hilberg broke loose and
the Wolverines scored twice. Midway
in the period Hillberg made a solo
dash from the center of the ice and
feinting goalie Bill Berkeley out of
position, shoved in the rubber for the
first score of the game. The time 5:36.
Five minutes later Les Hillberg, Al
Chadwick and George Cooke swept
up the ice from the Wolverine de-
fense zone, Hillberg passing to Chad-
wick who passed to Cooke in front of
the goal and the latter made a beau-
tiful shot for the second marker of;
the game. The time was 10:31.
Hillberg scored again in- the open-
ing minutes of the third period. Tak-
ing the puck off the boards about
forty yards out, he skated around two
Red Cat defense men and driving at
an angle whipped home a lightning
shot past Bill Berkeley, who was
caught cold. The time was 3:27.
A few minutes later the Red Cats
caught the men of Michigan napping
and three of them swept up to the
Michigan goal. James made a great
save stopping Forward's bid but Polit-
zer hammered the rebound over the
prostrate goalie for Reserve's only
score. The time was 6:27.

ball team made a trip to the west
coast during Christmas vacation and
met the University of Washington in
a three game series. Center John Gee
suffered a broken nose in the first
contest and to fill his place, Coach
Cappon shifted guard Matt Patanelli
to the pivot post.
That gave a raw rookie sophomore
by the name of Beebe his first real
shot at big time basketball. "I was
scared to death," he admits now, "but
those two games were my greatest
thrill. We won both in overtime."
Now A Captain
Today Leo Beebe is captain of the
Michigan team, a fine guard, a good
shot, a hard fighter, and above all'a
great guy. Last season he played
more than any Wolverine except
John Townsend and was third in
-coring ranking behind Townsend and
renter Jim Rae.
With his ultimate aim for a coach-'
ing job always in the back of his
mind, "Beeb" is a keen student of
the game and it's interesting to hear
his reactions to the new Michigan
style of attack after having played
"I like the fast break offense for
two reasons." he says. "In the first
place, it is flexible and gives the
boys more of a chance to show what
they can do. Take a fellow like Eddie
Thomas, he's fast, and he was some-
what bound by the old set play sys-
tem. Also, it makes it tougher for
an opposing team scout to get much
information except on the work of
the individual players.
"Bennie is doing a good job with the
team. One thing I like, and perhaps
you've noticed it, is that he doesn't
try to tell us just what to do every
time we get the ball. He lets us think
for ourselves. In the State game we
just worked the ball down the floor
and watched for an opening to pass.
It may have produced, some sloppy
ball handling but it also produced
"You know," he grinned, "That's
the first time I ever saw Bennie ner-
vous. Before that game, he couldn't
even eat. He sure wanted to win that
"How far will this team go, Leo?"
he was asked.
"They'll go just as far as the ma-
terial develops," came the reply.

we'll ever be but we are all still some,,
