Two Pool Marks Are Broken As Natators Sink Wayne,

Sofiak Retains
Scoring Lead
On Cage Squad
Little Mike Sofiak is still 12 points
ahead of towering Jim Mandler in
the keen race for individual scoring
honors on the Wolverine basketball
squad as the Varsity t goes into the
home stretch of the current hoop sea-
son.
The diminutive Wolverine forward
also mantins his lead in the "bad
man' department with 43 personal
fouls, but still trails sophomore Mel
Comi in foul shooting averages. Co-
min has made good on 11 out of 14
free throws for an average of .786
to top the field in that department.

By HAL WILSON
When discussing their team's
chances in an impending athletic
encounter, most coaches make the
stoical Mahatma Ghandi sound like
a circus barker in comparison.
Past "masters of the hedging tech-
nique, they confidentially disclose
startling facts about the opposing
squad's strength. "Oh, that bunch
is powerful, they have a great out=
fit," they say. And how about your
fellows, coach? "Well, I don't know,"
they declare, straddling the fence
with a finesse born of many years
experience, "if we only had a few
more weeks of work under our belts.
Jim (Joe, John) isn't in such good
shape yet, and you can see for your-
self about Bill (Bob, Ben)."
Evade The Issue
They hem and they haw; they
squirm and they wriggle. And when
you're done, you've learned little of
importance, and much about nothing.

Second Line Strong
The Brantford second-line center,
Doug Greig, spent two years with,
the Baltimore Orioles and played on
the line that led the U.S. Eastern!
Amateur League in scoring. Keith
Cooper, right wing on the second
line, is a speedy and powerful for-
ward, boasting the hardest shot on:
the team.
Coach Eddie Lowrey of Michigan
is not very hopeful that his boys will
spring an upset victory on Brantford;
but he consoles himself with the
thought that, in scheduling this
team, he is giving the local specta-
tors a chance to see one of the best
amateur clubs in Canada.
BASEBALL NOTICE
All scholastically eligible base-
ball players who plan to try out
for the Michigan baseball team
this spring are requested to sign
up at the south end of Yost Field
House any afternoon-this week.
Coach Ray Fisher

Advance registration is necessary
for the classes, which are open to all
students and faculty members. There
is a choice of four sections, meeting
Mondays and Wednesdays or Tues-
days and Thursdays, and classes willl
meet twice a week for the first two
weeks and once the third week, for
a total of five lessons. Registration
may be made in person or by phone
at the Sports Building.
All that is necessary for the firstj
meeting will be one or two iron clubs.
