Bennie Turns 'Gag' Man..'
BEFORE LONG they might be calling Bennie Oosterbaan the sage of the
hardwood. Back in the days when he used to play a little basketball on
his own hook, Bennie was the slowest man on the court. That is, he was
slow until he started to move-at which time he was as fast as a door
7;nder lock and key.
At times Ooosterbaan has been called the laziest man in Michi-
gan. Certain of his friends, however, object to this; they would
limit it to eastern Michigan. But be that as it may, Oosterbaan can
move into action with his tongue as well as with his legs.
For instance, he was talking about how moisture, in cold weather,
would form on the Field House roof, condense to form liquid pools on the
floor and then unwittingly, basketball players would slip on them. "Kinda
like the J-Hop?" inquired some socialite.
"Yea, kinda," replied Bennie, "except that at the J-Hop it was
probably liquid within that caused the falls."
To continue the Oosterbaan legend: Someone asked him how North-
western's Dick Klein looked.
"Well," said Bennie, somewhat ruefully, "it all depends on what
night you see him."
Note: Klein scored 24 points against Michigan last Saturday.
He must have been an All-American then.
Ohio State has a shot putter. This Ohio State shot putter's name is
George Simmons. This Ohio State shot putter whose name is George
Simmons has put the shot over 45 feet. Now it is not remarkable that
Ohio State has a shot putter, or that a shot putter be named George Sim-
mons or even that he can throw that thing better than 45 feet. But this lad
is only 161 pounds of matter. That throws something light on the subject.
CORNERSTONES: Fritz Crisler is considering the possibility of the foot-
ball team's flying to the coast next year to meet California ...It -
pends pretty much upon whether or not it saves enough time to make the
added expense worth while and then whether or not parental permission for
the players can be obtained . .. Ed Czak, varsity gridder, is playing intra-
mural hockey these days for the Shamrocks and is reported as running
true to his football form . . . That is, he was an end on the football team
and now spends most of his ice time on the same position . . . Bill Hapac's
new Big Ten scoring record of 34 points was made on the same floor on

feats might give the Maroons some
much needed confidence.
Added to this is the fact that Chi-I
cago has been an in-and-out team
since the season opened. It held
powerful Illinois to a one point vic-
tory as it lost 33-34, but bowed 41-27
to a weak Iowa court squad, which,
Michigan trounced 47-38.
Both basketball experts and Maroon
Coach Nelson Norgren figured, before
the season started, that Chicago with
its fairly well-balanced squad of vet-
erans and newcomers, which gave the
Midway lads a team averaging better
than six feet, should take a first divi-
sion berth this season.
Instead it has lost all six of its
Conference starts and is over-due for
a victory. Tonight will provide an
excellent opportunity for Chicago to
start winning, and it is up against
a team that will gain nothing by com-
ing out ahead, but will be under pres-
sure to do so, for to lose means con-
siderable loss of prestige.
Not only is Michigan's starting five
in doubt but so is that of the Maroons,
since Coach Norgren has been con-
stantly shuffling his players about in
an effort to snap them out of their
However, as Coach Oosterbaan stat-
ed that regardless of whether the
-Chicago outfit uses a zone defense,
man-to-man defense, or anything else
its coach might have concocted, the
fans will see a giant outfit that will
scrap all the way, and Michigan must
again resort to the clever fighting
play of which it is capable to win.

deavoring to stop the march of Mich-
igan's junior star.
Don Canham will unlimber his
high-flying legs against such jump-
ers as Notre Dame's Ted Leonas and

After Canham's recent showing here

ord, he is expected to bring home a

next strongest bid for a relay cham-

The Wolverines, second last year, ap-
pear capable of dethroning the de-
fending Missouri team.
Despite the fact that two of its
members are only beginning to round

whip the rest of the field, though the

Mat men Ready
For Stiff Test
At Penn State
Coach Cliff Keen's Wolverine wrest-
ling squad arrived by motor caravan
in State College, Pennsylvania last
night, favorites to capture their third
consecutive win, and fourth of the
season, over the Penn State grapplers
whom they meet this evening.
Michigan, with ineligibility and in-
juries conquered, will face the Lions
with what is probably the strongest
line-up they have been able to mus-
ter this season.
Michigan's big tests will come in
the lower weights. Tom Weidig, 121-
pounder, is meeting the man who beat
him last year in Carl King. Weidig's
added experience may turn the tables
tonight. Sophomore Dick French,
beaten in his first start last week
against Michigan State, will be out
to prove himself a valuable addition
to the squad when he meets letter-
man Dave Waite. Jack Sergeant will
have the toughest assignment in
Frank Gleason, Eastern Intercollegi-
ate champion, who was pinned in last
year's meeting between the two teams
by Wolverine Jim Mericka.
Starting at 155 pounds, the Wol-
verines must be given the edge. The
speedy Bill Combs may find trouble
with Joe Scalzo, the Lion 145-pounder
who was runer-up for the Eastern
155-pound crown last year, but should
get the nod. Harland Danner, 155-
pounder, faces veteran Roy Gensler,
and Sophomore Jim Galles squares
off against Jim Lindzey at 165 pounds.
Don Nichols, at 175, and captain
"Butch" Jordan, heavyweight, already
hold decisions over their opponents
tonight, Lion Captain Ernie Bortz
and the improved Warren Elliott, re-
Courtright To Start
Golf Classes Feb. 19
Under the direction of Ray Court-
right, Varsity golf mentor ,a series of
golf instruction classes will be held
in the Intramural sports building be-'
ginning Monday, Feb. 19. J
All University students and facul-
ty members are urged to attend free
of charge any one of the four sched-
uled sections, each of which meets
twice a week for three weeks, a total
of six lessons. The first section gets
under way Monday and Wednesday,
Feb. 19 and 21, at 3:30 p.m. with an-
other section following immediately
after on the same dates at 4:30 p.m.
The third and fourth sections will
first meet Tuesday and Thursday,
Feb. 20 and 22, at 3:30 and 4:30 p.m.
Beginning March 11 these classes
will be repeated for another three

Puck men Seek
For State Title
Michigan's badly clawed pucksters,
beaten by Michigan Tech, 1-0, Thurs-
day night in a fast, defensive hockey
game, take the ice at Houghton,
again today in an endeavor to
battle their way out of a slump and
skate into a tie with the Miners for
the mythical state championship.
Thursday's "Battle of Goalies"
ended late in the third period when
Bob Petaja, Tech wingman, flipped
the puck past the helpless Spike
James from a scramble in front of
the Michigan net. Up to that time
both James and Fred Meyer, Huskie
netminder, had played sensational
hockey in keeping their respective
nets free of pucks.
With Larry Calvert, high scoring
defenseman out of the lineup due to
graduation, Coach Lowrey's squad is
sadly lacking in effective scoring
punch. So it will probably be up to
Captain James and defensemen
Charley Ross and Bert Stodden to
stem the Tech attack, while the
Michigan forwards play for the
breaks to give them some scoring
Michigan's top line of Paul Gold-
smith, center, and Jim Lovett and
Gil Samuelson at the wings carry
the Wolverines' hopes to shatter the
five game losing streak that the
Maize and Blue team will carry on
to the Houghton ice this afternoon
before a festival-minded crowd of
Winter Carnival celebrants.
In the three games played thus
far, Michigan's "iron men" have
notched one goal against the goal-
tending of Kurt Gustafson and Mey-
ers, who guarded the nets Thurs-
day, in gaining one victory and los-

Joe Medwick, the medalist, and

both advanced handily.
Medwick turned in an approximate
76 to oust Denny Galehouse, 3 and 2,

who is another favorite, breezed
through his match with Johnny Riz-
zo, big Pittsburgh outfielder, for a
4 and 3 victory. He played out the
round in 75.

So does the
Hot Water Coil
in Your Furnace
Instead of supplying you with hot water free, it uses up to
one-fifth of all the fuel you burn in heating the water passing
through the coil.
Moreover, it can never be depended on to furnish you
with enough hot water, or water hot enough, when you want it.
Have it removed before it bursts, puts out your firs and
floods your basement, as so many old, corroded coils are doing
while fires are high this month.
Substitute a gas automatic water heater, which will give-
you a constant supply of Instant Hot Water for a few cents
