WEEKEND JOUrNEY TO LAFAYETTE-Just alter the sun decided to
wake up Friday morning, Ken Doherty honked a blasting horn outside
the Double's green-shuttered maision . . . A quick once-over with the
toothbrush, a half-peeled banana stuffed through still-yawning tonsils,
three hasty stops to pick up Mrs. D.(Doherty, not Double), Phil Diamond1
and Hal Wilson . . . and we were on our way.
Arrived at the magnificent Purdue Memorial Union shortly after noon1
only to hear that the athletic directors were tangling about the Chicago situ-
atidn somewhere in the building . . . Hal and I left the rest to hunt u the1
A.D.'s . Were delighted to find after only two minutes of search a stately
looking room with stately looking men chatting about important affairs in-1
side . The door was open so we sneaked in . . Began to wonder Mhen
the discussion concerned land in the Middle West . . . Thought maybe the
A.D.'s were considering founding a new school to take Chicago's place . .
after five more minutes of intensive listening, learned ,we were attending
the Corn Growers' Conference.
This Purdue Memorial Union is quite the place '. . tremendous,
and serves the place of both our League and Union . . . The fair ones
and not so fair ones being allowed all over the joint except for one wee
enclosure . . They significantly have termed that part "The Men's
Bum Room . Dedicated in 1940 as a last frontier to the sanctity of
man" . . Saw Fielding Yost . . . He came up from Indianapolis where
le was chatting with aul McNutt concerning the defense problem .-.
Saw Sonny Franck . . . He seemed quite worried about the meet .
He sat in the tap room surrounded by three Purdue beauties who each
took turns pattng his All-American cheeks.
JAD A BRILLIANT IDEA Friday night. . . Feeling like a wonderful hero,
in the wee hours, the Double ran up and down the hall in front of In-
diana squad rooms yelling "fire, help, fire" . . . It failed to work though .
Those guys are so lazy off the track, they turned over in bed, muttered "let
the darn thing burn" and went back to sleep . . When I finally did go
to bed, was jarred during the middle of the night by a noise from Wilson's

meet "If Hal1 or McCarthy" blurted out the junior night editor, still
sound asleep.
Worried Charley Decker arose early Saturday morning and wanted to
go flying most of all . . Phil Diamond went record buying . . . Came back
with a new version of "I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby" .
Nice sentiment for a German professor . . . Spent the afternoon waiting for
the athletic "lirectors' meeting to break up . . . The big news hawks waited
patiently outside the door all afternoon, got discouraged after three hours,
went out for a walk . . . and two minutes later, the A.D.'s adjourned and
there wasn't a reporter in sight . . . There was plenty of talk around the
Union building about the Chicpgo mess and Wendell Wilson, Illinois' ath-
letic director, whose flip tongue started the whole thing the night before .. .
He wanted to give the Maroons a hurrie boot out of the Conference . . .
The fact that the athletic directors had no power to do anything about the
matter made the whole thing look foolish.
The Butler Relay beauty queen sa directly behind us in the press
box that night and occasionally we turned around to see the meet .
The high school basketball tourneys made track look sick as far as at-
tendance nd local newspaper headlines were concerned . . . As it was,
the greatest cheer of the evening came when it was announced thatj
"Lafayet- Jefferson had won the Regionals."
FRANCK AND MYRON PIKER are such track enemies that when Sonny

Things I won't soon forget . . . Charley Decker's second try at 14
feet . . . He cleared the bar by a mile and clipped it off on the way down
with his arm . . . It took the heart out of the Wolverine junior . . . The

chance of winning the swim title . . . They scored three points . . .

Hockey Finale
Well, the old hockey season is over
as far as Ann Arbor fans are con-
cerned. And nothing could have pro-
vided a more fitting finale than
Saturday's great contest between
Michigan and Illinois, topped off by
an exchange of fisticuffs between
Bert Stodden of the Wolverines and
Artful Amo Bessone of the Illini that,
for sheer animal-like ferocity, would
be hard to beat. _
From a Michigan standpoint,'the
game wasn't so much to rave about
since the visitors took an 8-2 victory.

Jim Skinner breezed home in one

Matt shuffled his distance lineup
so that it read: Will Garvey-winner

Spartans with the seconds and thirds.

The Big Ten wrestling season is
over, but one can't help but look back
to last fall ,and then start pondering
on what might have been.

But from the viewpoint of the impar-
tial fan who likes his hockey rough,
fast and liberally dotted with- tricky
scoring plays, Saturday's contest was
as good as any seen on the, local ice
this season.
First of all, of course, there was the
exhibition put on by Norbert Sterle.
The Illinois Wizard did everything
but take tickets in as thrilling a one-
man show as these old eyes have ever

most miraculously controlling the disc
with his stubby stick (he cuts off the
end), the Eveleth, Minn., star turned
up in front of the Michigan net so
often that Hank Loud, the Wolverine
net-minder, began to think he was
homesteading there.
Five of his shots got past Henry.
Sterle aided his left-wing, Gil Priest-
ley, on two more goals and the other
Illinois marker was scored by Joe
Gannon on an assist from Starr
Owen. r
Bert Stodden scored both goals for
Michigan and, in addition, took part
in the set-to already mentioned. The
battle was worth seeing. Since both
boys play the same rough type of
game, it was evident something was
brewing every time they collided.
With two minutes to play, it came..
Stodden bounced off the boards'
swinging after a hard check and Bes-
sone retaliated in kind. They fell to
the ice locked together. When they
finally were separated and deposited
in the penalty box, they went at it
again. Bessone's banishment to the
locker room put an end to the battle
which highlighted the game for the
crowd of almost 1,000 fans.

The Intramural Department pro-
gram for the Thirteenth Annual Open
souse to be held at 7 p.m. tomorrow
in the Sports Building was just
about completed last night. Except
for a few last minute details every-
thing is ready to swing into action.
Last night in the semi-final round
of the Fraternity "A" basketball
championships, Sigma Chi whipped
Zeta Beta Tau, 19-10, and earned the
right to meet Theta Xi, who trounced
Beta Theta Pi, 26-13.
Leroy Weir, Varsity tennis coach,
has replaced Joe Hahn, State squash
champion, in the feature exhibition
squash match, and he will meet John
Reindell, former i State champion. In

Hillman, will tangle with Spencer
Reitz, Bill Schomberg, and Bob Sum-
merhays of the Chi Psi house.
The all-campus winter tennis finals
will also be decided when Gerry
Schaflander meets Doug Hillman.
This match will be one of the feat-
ures of the evening.
The Jandball courts will draw quite

a crowd because of the exhibition
handball match to be put on by
Messrs. Lappin and Zerbo, National
YMCA champions, and Messrs. Davis
and Miller of the Toledo YMCA.
These two teams met in the finals
last year and put on a sensational
exhibition of handball techniques.
In the pool, Trigon, last year's Fra-
ternity water polo champs, meet Psi
Upsilon, this year's titleholders, in
an exhibition match. Psi U also
holds the Fraternity team swimming
crown. To top off the activties in
