- By BUD BENJAMIN -

PEAKING of hockey-as this de-
partment is occasionally prone to
-may I recommend the following
lstar affair as a post-examination
:reshment.
Some time after exams, before the
clted eyes of their families, their
-l friends, and four rink rats, Fritz
Isler's 23 Skidoos and Archie Ko-
>s' Murderers Row will tangle in
Coliseum hockey duel. Arrange-
nts have been made, health serv-
facilities have been reserved, and
e game apparently can't help but
as wild as one of those mass wrest-
g bouts.
The coaches are primed. They
hiave oiled their skates, borrowed
a, few football helmets from Hank
hatch, who will not play, and
Insist that "it's a grudge battle"
The players, all of them gridders,
e at present too absorbed with
ademic pursuits to worry much
out the engagement although one
them, who obviously prefers to re-
dn unnamed, declared that "we'll
>lder 'em."
Perhaps memories of cold Novem-
r afternoons with three hour prac-
es and then a topper of nine
,gths of the field to get "loosened
will spur the gridders to new
ights. And then maybe they'll just
along on the asumption that it's
ly a game anyway, and why an-
gonize a bunch of fellows who are
und to get the final say in the long
Crisler's lineup is star-studded.
Flying Fritz will hold down a
wing post along with Killer Ken
olherty, who declares that hock-
ey is merely a refined form of
tralk on skates. At center will be
Muscle Man Martineau, who
elaims that he has turned down
several major league offers "po-
ferng football."
The defense is as dainty and mild
Tqny Galento after a glass of
ilk. Waldemar "Turk" Weber, an
Ldie Shore with a mad on, will ade-
ately fill one defense post while
b mate will be that gay impressario
arence Munn, a clever little tot 'of
ae 200 pounds who played a bit of
-American guard for Minnesota.
Tfe goalie has not been chosen as

s no desire to place hissframe in

a4d to the side, stopping enemy
ots with a "flat forehand."
"Of course," adds Weir, "should
we go to a lead, as we undoubted-
ly shall, I intend to switch to the
other side of the cage and show
those lugs a real backhand."
charley Hoyt, Ray Fisher, and Matt
pnn are, as yet, undecided as to the

ends to employ a half nelson and
reverse armlock on any player who
is rambunctious.
For the football team, I find a
rness of ability which I shall take
the liberty of placing. Capt. Ko-
dros will be in the goal, although
the coaches have hinted that he
will be forced to stand side-ways
to even up things. "Who can push
one past that wide guy," corn-
plained one of them.
There is an abundance of defense-

Miler Harold Davidson is making

while Barnett looks better over the
longer two-mile route.{
Round Out Squad
Brad Heyl, a junior, and Art Cline,
a isecond-year man, round out the
squad. Heyl ran the two-mile last
year and probably will stick in that
grind while Cline, who was a half-

present to be ready for no more than
the mile.

that looks like a smnall e(dition of
a jai-lal crease. For further infor-
mation stop in at the I-M building
sometime and have Assistant Director
Earl Riskey give you lessons on the
finer points of the game. That is one
of the many gratis services that the
I-M department offers.
Codeball is another one of those
fancy games that is taught there.
This sport might be called the h'and-!
less handball since it is played on
a handball court without the use of,
the hands. Johnny Johnstone, former
Varsity tennis coach, is, among otherj
things, codeball instructor. Among1
other things? Yes, since Johnstone is
also I-M fencing and tennis expert.j
All-Around Sportsj
Are you interested in becoming aI
real all-around man? Then go I-M,
young man, go I-M. Learn how to be-
come a member of Sigma Delta Psi,
honorary athletic society, there un-
der the tutelage of Assistant Director
R. W. Webster. When that organiza-
tion offers you its membership pin,
you have to do everything from the
soup to the nuts as far as athletics
are concerned.
If its boxing you are interested in,
then this might interest you. Martin
Levandowski, the I-M boxing instruc-
tor, once whipped Jim Braddock and
then quit the ring to watch Braddock
climb to world's titleholder in the
heavyweight ranks.
And that's not all. You can also
learn how to play badminton, golf,
handball,, paddleball, squash, and
table tennis at the I-M building.
Furthermore they will give you in-
structions in archery, gymnastics, life
saving, riding, rifle shootig, swim-
ming, weight lifting and wrestling.

Michigan Builds Repuiadioii
All this time, Matt Mania was
building up his reputation in the
West. Michigan went eight years un-
defeated and, besides being perennial
Big Ten champion, was National Col-
legiate title-holder seven times and
runner-up once in eight years.
But the two schools never met in a
dual meet. The Nationals went to
Michigan but Yale's consecutive vic-]
tory string continued unbroken.
