WE ENTERED into that den of in-
iquity with qualms, fears and
great trepidation. It was our first
acquaintance with that inferno; we
knew not what to expect. The first
thing that met our eye was four bil-
liard balls-with one of the balls,
raised two feet above the rest and,
wonders of wonders, talking to an as-
A closer glance disclosing that
the discourser at the Union bil-
liard room was Charles "Show
Me A Shot I Can't Make" Peter-
sen. After making every shot we
showed him and a few that we
had never seen before, the travel-
ing salesman of collegiate bil-
liards began to speak of his ad-
venture in Hollywood where he
was making some shorts (motion
picture not underwear).
"That's how I lost my hair," he
said, "but at that it came in handy.
I'd walk through the studio carrying
my brief case and everyone would
think I was a director. At times it
proved highly advantageous." We
didn't question him further.
Charles "Show Me etc., etc" Pet-
ersen was engaged in a two-day ex-
hibition of showing them shots he
could make at the Union. He did
quite well, thank you,

Just read the article in your
sports column this morning, and
think there has been a slight
misinterpretation of statements.
"He sprang eight feet" might not
refer to vertical height at all, but
to the distance between the low-
er deck of his own boat and the
lower deck of the German boat
horizontally. That is his boat
approached to within eight feet
of the German boat, the lower
deck of his boat was on approxi-
mately the same level as the
German boat, and he simply took
a running broad jump (sprang)
to the lower deck of the German
boat. This latter interpretation
makes his pushing the German
guard aside more plausible.
Hoping t h i s interpretation
meets with your approval, and
serves to remove any misconcep-
tion from your mind, I am
Well if this is going to remove any
misconception from your mind it'll
have to do the same for Mr. Webster,
of dictionary fame. We quote from
that quotable source:
"Spring, v.t.-to start or rise
suddenly, to leap or jump up. To
tower; to be relatively higher. To
shoot up, to pass over by leaping
as to spring a fence."
Forrest Jordan called Butch by his
intimates and something else by his
friends, is back from Penn State
where he won his heavyweight
wrestling match by default when he
broke his opponent's leg. He walks
around campus these days, growling
threateningly and warning all and
sundry "I still have the formula."

Two of the most powerful heavy-
weights in collegiate wrestling circles
will face each other in the climax
bout on the colorful Navy-Michigan
card Saturday afternoon.
Forrest Jordan, captain of Michi-
gan's Big Ten title threats, will be
making his farewell appearance be-
fore local mat fans in what comes
close to being the high spot of his
career when he squares off aganst
the Naval Academy captain, Allen
Jordan strongest Wolverine
Jordan's six foot, 198-pound frame
Las earned him the reputation of be-
ng the strongest grappler in Wolver-
ne athletic history. His foe Saturday
brings with him a physique that tops
Butch's by a couple of inches and a
good 15 pounds, and with it a claim
to the same distinction at the Naval
Bergner's advance notices herald
him as one of the top all-around ath-
letes the Middies have ever turned
out. A letterman in lacrosse and
boxing, the Midshipman drew nation-
al attention last fall as he captained
the Navy gridders at his tackle post
and carried on a much publicized
rivalry with his former Kankakee
High SchobI teammate, Capt. Harry
Stella of the Army.
Stakes Reputation Against Jordan,
When he steps onto the mat with
Jordan, however, he will be staking
his impressive reputation against one
of the top heavyweights in the Mid-
west. Coach Keen placed the Wol-
verine in this category when he de-
clared him to be the best man to
compete in his division at Michigan
since Ed "Don" George left school to
enter the pro ranks.
Butch has learned a lot of wrest-
ling since the day when, as a year-
ling fresh out of Clare, he found him-
self a locker-room neighbor of the

The Golden'Gophers of goal-getting
fame skate onto the Coliseum ice Sat-
urday night with as enviable a scor-
ing record as any coach living or
otherwise could wish from any collec-,
tion of hockey players.
Minnesota's power-packed sextet of
puck chasers seems to have a special
knack of humiliating their opponents
with the sharpest shooting band of
goal getters ever to take the ice. In
winning 14 straight games thus far
this season, Coach Larry Armstrong's
crew has drilled 108 goals past oppos-
ing net minders.
Machine-guning 108 goals in 14
games brings the Big Ten Hockey
Champions an average of 7.7 goals
per game which is shooting in any
man's league. Seven of the fourteen
contests have been won by an 8-goal
margin, which shows further the
superiority that the Gophers hold over
the country's best collegiate teams.
Leading the Minnesota rifle squad
are the "Terrible Three,"-Co-cap-
tains John Mariucci and Frank St.
Vincent, and Harold Paulsen. Paul-
sen is the diminutive, blond right
winger whose stick handling ability
and tremendous speed have hoisted
him into the top scoring position for
the second straight year with 21 goals
and 11 assists.
St. Vincent is the center and play-
maker of the front line and has col-
lected 13 goals and 17 assists, while
defenseman John Mariucci, Michi-
gan's personal headache, has scored
20 goals and collected 7 assists.
Even the Minnesota goalie, Marty
Falk, has had his share of scoring
glory, being one of the few goalies
in the history of the game ever to
score a goal. Falk takes the penalty
shots for his team and has kept up
the team's reputation by beating the
Illinois net minder twice in the past
Just as a means of comparison,
against Michigan Tech the Cham-
pions unleashed their full artillery and
virtually wore the net thin with an
amazing total of 33 goals in four
games. The Wolverines, meanwhile,
in the same number of battles against
the same team were able to collect
but one goal.
So it is no wonder that opposing
teams fear the merciless "Goal Get-
ting Gophers" They're powerful and
they're potent, and what's more, they
