The Sigma Chi steamroller swept
to its second consecutive interfra-
ternity speedball championship. last
night, licking a fighting Phi Kappa'
Psi team, 12-7, under the Wines Field
lights before a fair-sized crowd.
The Phi Psis, held to one score in
each of the first three periods, camel
back with a desperate fourth-quar-I
ter attack which netted them four
points, but even in this period Sigma
Chi held them to an even break,
chalking up four scores themselves,
three of them on free kicks.
Winners Started Early
The defending champions had
wasted no time in getting their of-
fense uider way, four points in the,
first period and another in the sec-
ond giving them a 5-2 lead at the
half. Tly scored only once in the
third quarter, but it was a three-
pointer by Irv Busse, who took a pass
from Lucas and booted it between the
goal posts past Goalie Glen Robin-
The winners' attack was paced by
Busse, who came into his own last
night, scoring four points, and turn-
ing in his usual fine defensive game.
Jack Cory was right on his heels
with three counters, while Jack Coo-
per and Al Kelso added two apiece.
nob Reutter, league-leading scorer,
made the other Sig score before he
left the game in the third period
with an ankle injury.
Knapp Good In Goal
Capt. Charlie Knapp almost
clinched an All-Star berth with a
sparkling performance in the goalie
spot for Sigma Chi. Kelso's toe was
the biggest factor in keeping the
Phi Psis back on their heels through-

the big defensive factors.

Lowrey Pleased As
Squad Pounds Into


Coach Eddie Lowrey put his Var-
sity hockey squad through a hard*
two-hour scrimmage last night at
the Michigan Coliseum and, for the
first time this season, felt able to
voice favorable comment on the
team as a whole.
"They looked fairly good tonight,"
he said, "but we still have a lot of
work to do. The defense is fair
but we have to find a center who
nows when to pass."

Hillbilly Threatens Early
The only Hillbilly threat came late
in the first half when Walt Peckin-
paugh, last year's Varsity baseball
captain, completed a pass from mid-
field to Harold Nichols on the Rob-
ert Owen 20. On the next play Har-
old Ehlers of Robert Owen intercept-
ed Peckinpaugh's pass and brought
the ball to his own 25 to end the
Peckinpaugh, gaining consistent-
ly through the line behind the block-
ing of Harold and Don Nichols, and
completing several passes, was the
spearhead of the winner's attack.
Capt. Ralph Kelly, and Polonsky were
the Robert Owen offensive stars, while
Ehlers, who broke up several Hill-
billy marches by intercepting passes
was the defensive star. Ludvick Miku-
lich, Robert Owen right tackle, was
I the outstanding lineman of the game.

and the twice-licked squad of two

Coupled with the uncertainty as to
how good Michigan really is, there is
the tradition in which the game is
steeped. It's the last game of the
season, nothing has to be held back,
a victory for either team can sal-
vage an entire poor season, and the
records show that pre-game favorites
are just so much talk when the teams
clash on the field.
Bucks Seek Revenge
This year the Buckeyes are out to
remove some of the stain of Michi-
gan's easy win of last year down in
Columbus. Francis Schmidt hadn't
lost to Michigan since he came to
Ohio, and since victory over the Wol-
verines is the prime task of a Buck-
eye coach, 'Close-the-gates-of-mercy'
Schmidt will be out 'to get' Michigan.
Last year's 18-0 win broke a four-

I am a very fussy young man about a good many things, and one of them
is laundry. I like my clothes to be just right. Yes Sir, there's nothing I

neatly folded and really clean. That's why I have my clothes done the
LAUNDRY way. I may be fussy, but I know what I want and I get it.
Quick delivery, efficient service, neat repair work, and really clean
