Now It Can Be Told .. .
rTHEY SAY that "Celebrity Night" at the Book is really quite an affair.
That may well be, but for the inside story I suggest that you contact any
of the following: Jack Brennan. Ralph Heikkinen, Dorothea Staebler, or
Marian Phillips. I have called these people and have been enlightened.
Arranging "Celebrity Nights" is not an easy task, and I remember
distinctly cornering Heikkinen and Miss Phillips at the Coliseum at 9 '
revived spirit. They began guarding4
closer, passing better, and scrapping!
But last night's defeat was not due
to lack of effort or spirit. Minnesota
simply had too much. Gordon Spear,
sank a long, Johnny Dick took a per-
fect Kundla pass for a set-up, and
the Gopher lead was now stretched to
It was the same story throughout
the half. Michigan's shooting was
woefully inept, and the Gophers
beautifully executed plays were work-
ing whenever they chose to set them
up. Perfectly coordinated, this Minne-
sota team proved to be no one man
show. The scoring was divided among
each of the starting five, with Spear~
and Maki sharing second honors with
seven points apiece.
Gophers Save Energy
The second half found the visitors
conserving their energy and killing'
time with a fine passing exhibition in
their own back court. They took only
14 shots in the final period, four of
which hit their mark. . Added to two,
fouls registered, they increased their!
total to a comfortable 34 points.
Michigan, on the other hand, hit
only two times in 29 attempts in the
final stanza, ample evidence of their
poor marksmanship. The Wolverines
added four fouls in the period.
Highlight of the closing minutes of
the game was the rough and ready,
slam bang variety of ball which the
Wolverine reserves resorted to in a
desperate attempt to score. Little
Mike Sofiak, one of the gamest plug-
gers on the local register, stocky Milo
Sukup, and. Harmon enlivened pro-
ceedings with the old football try,
and but for the steadying influence
of Thomas, the game might have de-
generated into mass mahem.
Thomas Is Outstanding
Eddie was easily the outstanding
Wolverine on the floor last night,
offensively and defensively. His nine
points led the local scorers, and his
guarding of Addington, whom he held
to two baskets, was excellent.
Locker Room Patter: The Gophers
remind one of the New York Yankees
Their confidence is infectuous
and conventional attempts at modes-
ty are unconvincing. . .'Coach Mac-
Millan smokes a big cigar and ignores
newspaper men ... On the floor they
were giving each other the old "ride"
Said Kundla: "Yeh, we're good,
but so is the rest of the Conference"
... They meet Northwestern tomor-
row . . . The whole Gopher team
came into the Wolverine locker room
after the game to console the varsity.
... Which is always easy for a win-'
ning team to do ... Kundla is "high"
on Capt. -Leo Beebe whom he rates
as one of the best in the Conference
o'clock. Pat Conger was going to drive us into Detroit for Harry Wismer's
Casino of the .Stars program, and Brennan and Miss Staebler were to
meet us there. So we left.
Detroit is only 38 miles away, and it's a nice drive to take on Sunday
with the kids in the back seat and a poodle- on your lap. But last night was
was different. There were huge snow drifts all the way and Conger was doing
a Corrigan eluding snow plows, snow banks, and a glacial field which we hit'
outside of Ypsilanti. In the back sat an all American guard and a man hater,
a really fine duet to travel with on an icy night. Conger was monopolizing
the rear view mirror watching proceedings with a Zolaesque flair for tl-( '
naturalistic, and I was singing "Jeepers Creepers" to the blare of a swing
band over the radio. Only once did I turn around, that time to inquire wheth-
er our back seat passengers wanted some gum. Mr. Heikkinen ended this bit
of philanthropy with a cryptic: "Hey, I thought you %yere minding your own
business," and so I did-all the way to town.
At the Book, the maitre de escorted us to a large table adjacent to th;,
orchestra stand. Things were served-things which you eat, and things which
you drink. They were "on the house." My memory here becomes progressively
Mr. Brennan and Miss Staebler, who were casting inspiring glances
at each other throughout the evening (see page 5 for further details)
were waiting for us and the party began. There was Emory Deutsch's
music, terpsichorean diversion, and a singer named Mildred Craig who
sat quite close to our table, and who is a swing vocalist; she has definite-
ly improved my rendition of "Jeepers Creepers."
Harry Wismer, who did a fine job of football broadcasting this year, was
m.cing the show and he arrived at 11:15. A program was devised, and at 11:30
we took the air.
Mr. Heikkinen led off with a nervous voice break and some interesting
news about San Francisco, Hollywood, New Orleans, and the East-West foot-
ball game. The crowd stormed around the band stand aping at Michigan's
all-American, and Heik sweated aplenty.
Miss Phillips followed. Not nearly so nervous as her escort, she ran
into considerable difficulty formulating a man-hating policy. Only aired
Phillipsism: "Men aren't things, they're mice" sounded unconvincing to
me, and Mr. Heikkinen registered little concern.
Brennan followed, and his mike personality was good. He told about being
elected queen, and from then on was addressed as "Queenie." Asked how
much he weighed, Jacqueline replied: "203 pounds-stripped," which was
slightly more specific than Mr. Wismer expected.
Also at our table sat Jim Backus and George Eade of the "Gang Busters"
radio show. They took the air next with a few of Red Skelton's funnyisms,
and plugged their program to death. Eade's introductory "shut up," which he
blasted in a cunning basso, almost blew WJR off the air.

Loveliest bit of femininity I have seen since Billy Rose's show left

has the lead in "Our Town," showing currently in Detroit. Gifted with a
charming voice and exquisite features, Miss McGuire proved to be the
cynosure of all eyes while she held sway. After leaving the rostrum she
sent a message to our table that she would like to meet that "football
adonis." Heikkinen was dancing, so Brennan-ignoring my "want me to
take it Jack?"-filled the order. Miss McGuire may also check page 5 for
