known as applying "English." Thatl
gives lHarvard? the c e.
i Notre Dame-Navy: If the cue ball
is hit above center it will, after'
striking the object ball, follow in
the same line. If , hit below centter,
the cue ball will ;return toward the
player after striking the object bay-l
'This is known as "'draw." Also draw-
ing 80,000 spectators will be Notre
Dame. All.Navy will draw is flies.
Tulane-North Carolina: Some ex-
perts can negotiate an extremely dif-
ficult shot known as a masse. In
making this shot it is necessary to
hold the cue in a vertical position,
strike the cue ball on one side from
the top causing it to travel in a curve
without hitting any object. Tulane.
Yale-Army: In a masse shot the
ball often gyrates in figure-eights.
Experts like Charles Peterson can
form so many figures with a masse
shdot that he can do his own multi-
plication on a billiard table. Yale.
Texas Christian-Texas A. & M.:
When the neophytes have mastered,
the art of striking the other two
balls iwith the cue ball, there are
morel difficult variations lying in
wait. One of these is called "three-
rail." Texas A & W.
Indiana-Illinois: The purpose in
this game is to have the cue ball
strike three cushions before making
the billiard. It matters not a jot
whether or not the cue ball hits one'
ball, then hits three rails before"
striking the other or makes threes
rails before hitting the ball. "'Tis all
one." Indiana.
Cornell-Penn State: Unlike other
games, kisses are very annoying. A
kiss in billiards is when the cue ball,
in its flight around the table, is in-
terrupted by one of the object balls.
It is most disheartening. Cornell.

Fencn Class
Taught Finer
Points Of Art
Tournaments To Be Held'
To Determine Campus
ChampsThis Year
The clash of steel against steel-
echoes of the bygone era of D'Artag-
nan and the Three Musketeers are
being heard regularly at the Intra-
mural building these days as a group
of 20 enthusiastic athletes learn the
fine points of the art of fencing un-
der th direction of Ray Chambers,
One of the outstanding fencers
working out under Chambers, who
i thegcampus saberhchampion, is
John Dreher, '42. Dreher copped the
foil and epee titles at the All Cain-
pus tournament held last year and
has 'attained the rank of Intermedi-
ate in the Amateur Fencer's League
of America.
Meeting Monday, Wednesday and
Friday from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., the
class is also aided in acquiring skill
and fencing technique by two gradu-
ate students, Stewart Peck and Sol
Karch, who are both well-known in
mid-west fencing circles.
Campus interest in the sport is
strongly evinced by the fact that in
addition to this group, there are ap-
proximately 60.other fencing enthusi-
asts drilling under Coach John John-
stone at Waterman Gymnasium. The
fencing movement has also gained
adherents among coeds on campus,
several members of Chamber's group
helping to instruct them in the art.
As late as 1932-33 fencing held
footing as a varsity sport at Michi-
gan, but in 1933 it was dealt a knock-
out blow by the depression, lack of
finances finally forcing a complete
curtailment of the sport.
At the present time fencing teams
are maintained at such colleges and
universities as Purdue, Chicago, Ohio
State, Illinois, Indiana, Northwes-
tern, Wayne and Michigan State.
Hope is strong for the revival of a
fencing team here and a movement
to this end is being put before the
Board in Control of Physical Edu-
Three fencing tournaments are
planned for the forthcoming year.
One will be held for beginners, an-
other will be conducted by Scimitar,
honorary fencing society, and the
third will be the anuual All-Campus

At the close of light limbering up:

tended to roll up their sleeves and
let the chips - championship and
