Forest Evashevski, captain of that aforementioned athletic aggregation,
pulled a sly trick on us one day and by trickery, slyness and foul means,
wheedled us out of a dime. But our editorial integrity compels us to inform
the football team and the public that:
Forest Evashevski has been promenading about, disguised as a female
siren. There! We've said it.-
We saw it ourselves. There was the Evashevski we'd called The One-

MICHIGAN HOCKEY is facing a crisis of some sort. Next Thursday and
Saturday, Vic Heyliger brings his new-born team up to play shinny
with the local lads and at that time things might happen.
Strictly speaking, the appellation "new-born" can't be applied to the
Illini for they've had teams for two years. But this is Heyliger's first
year as head-coach and also the Illini's first attempt to put hockey on a
comparatively large scale. And before absorbing a pair of defeats from
Minnesota, 8-2 and 9-2, the sextet was rewarded by words of Gopheri
coach Larry Anmstrong: "I regard them as being fully as strong as p
Similar statements might be put into the category of damning with
faint praise.
The Wolverine hockey team can't be blamed. It isn't a matter of
apathy. It's simply that scoring and the front lines seem to be inimical.
The two just don't get along together. And it's not a matter of not trying.
They give their all, but to coin a phrase, their all just doesn,'t seem to be
An immediate remedy might be to shift Charley Ross and Larry
Calvert from the defense to the front line. Then put the center and both
wings (all three of them ) back on defense. At least it would be a

The old saying goes "two tie, all
tie" but Matt Mann isn't paying much
attention to the old saying these days.
The "two tie" came last year when
Matt's Wolverine swimmers battled to
two deadlocks with Mike Peppe's
mermen from down Columbus way,
but according to the Michigan coach,
the "all tie" just doesn't follow.
Matt expects, a lot more from his
mighty natator crew when he takes
them to the bailiwick of the Buck-
eyes this Saturday for the first of this
year's two meetings.
Another deadlock, and this is au-
thentic, would be enough to drive the
Michigan coach within a half gain-
er's distance of an Eloise padded cell.
"Why they haven't got a chance
against our boys this year," Matt
pointed out yesterday. If I've ever
had it, I've got dynamite in the water

However, the resignation was no
surprise. It had been rumored here
and in Morgantown, W.Va., for weeks
that Kern would be named head
coach of West Virginia University

until after a still unscheduled meet-

days of working out when he was

of Jim Butler from the picture on the
advice of his physician left the spot
wide open. Four men are now fight-

need more work before any one of
them can fill the bill.
