Michigan squad, will play though the
majority of the game' without re-
placements. Stodden and Ross are
both rough, hard-checking hockey
players and both can be counted on
to furnish an occasional thrill with
solo dashes down the ice.
The second forward line will be
made up of Jim Lovett and Johnny
Corson, both veterans, with newcom-
er Jimmy Anderson completing the
trio. Bob Collins and Gil Samuelson
will team with Fred Heddle or John-
ny Gillis on a third front line. Hugh
McVeigh, spare goalie, will be in uni-
form and stands a good chance of
getting into the fray before the night
While the Wolverines are improved,
the Londoners are not to be consid-
ered a soft touch since they will also
present a vastly improved lineup.
With only four veterans present on
a squad of 13, youth and speed are
the keynotes of the visiting club.
Pat Barrett, husky defense man,
Bill Legg, speedy right winger, and
Stan Butler, high-scoring center, will
provide the bulwark of the visitor's
opening lineup. Butler scored two of
London's three goals against the Wol-
verines last year. Hal Moffatt will be
in the nets for London while new-
comers'Taylor and McLoud will com-
plete the starting lineup.

Twelve Residence Hall hockey
teams have started play in their first,
season of regular competition. Three
four-team leagues are battling for
playoff positions, two in the West'
Quadrangle and the third including
the three new East Quad undergrad-
uate houses and Fletcher Hall.
The Independent touch football
grown, only one of the fall sport
titles yet undecided, will be on the
line Sunday morning when Robert
Owen League A champs, face the
Hillbilly eleven, League B winners
defending the championship it
won last year. The tilt will take
place at 10:30 at Wines Field.
Owen advanced to the finals by
virtue of a 25-0 win over the C & C
Packers, League C entry. Werner
Wassmansdorf, Owen end, added
three touchdowns to his 19 point sea-
son's total in the game to lead the
division's scorers. Harold Ehlers,
halfback, tossed two passes to Wass-
mansdorf and one to Bernie Tauber
to take part in three scores.

Williams House won its first
championship Monday when it took
the West Quad League II volleyball
title. Williams is scheduled to meet
Wihchell House,-League II winners,
for the right to face Fletcher Hall's
League III champs for the Resi-
dence Hall crown. The entire play-
offs will take place Monday night.
Lloyd House has gotten away to a
lead in the race for the Michigan
Union Bowling Trophy, with a record
of 14 wins against one defeat thus
far. George Jaquillard, of Winchell
House, has carded a 237, the highest
individual game of the young season.

about to start, a fully clothed stran-

no less than seven varsity men. After
five minutes of frantic searching they
gave up. This touched off the fun-

Capt. Bill Beebe who streaked his
way across the pool in 1:04.2 in the
100 yard backstroke, leading Dick
Riedl and Ted Horlenko.
The crowd's attention was then
drawn to a plumber who started
pounding the diving board unmerci-
fully. Matt Mann pointed high up to
the ceiling where a light was out.
"There's the trouble," he said.
Two minutes later a satchel
dropped out of the roof followed by
two legs and a body. It was the
plumber all right, and he chased his
tool kit into the pool from his lofty
perch 'to the delight of the blood
Comic, Diver Pleases
Clayton Mains, the comic diver,
lived up to all expectations as he
burlesqued his way to the audience's
heart in a peppermint-striped, pat-

he belly-flopped into the water on
his "half-gainer" the reverberations
must have been felt in Ypsilanti.
T-Bone Martin, Bill Beamer, Al

dazzling display of collegiate caliber
diving that left mouths gaping and

To Sink Army
In Grid Classic
NEW YORK, Nov. 29.-(A)-Ex-'
pept for a few scattered engagements
between beaten teams next week,
college football bows out tomorrow
and leaves the various "Bowl" com-
mittees to put on their annual tug-
of-war for the prize elevens.
But the big game of the day will
have no bowl significance. It will
bring together Army and Navy for
the 41st time at Philadelphia's Mu-
nicipal Stadium with a sell-out crowd
of 102,000 in prospect.

and become an automatic choice for
the big blow-off at Pasadena.
Vols Meet Vanderbilt
The Tennessee Volunteers, strong
contenders for the honor of either
representing*the East a second
straight time in the' Rose Bowl or
playing in the Sugar Bowl, complete
their schedule against the weak Van-
derbilt Commodores and appear a
,inch to wind up their third consecu-
tive perfect season against southern
Boston College, all victorious up
to this point and heading straight
for the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans
on New Year's Day, finishes against
its old rival, Holy Cross. The cru-
saders do not look good enough to
check Coach Frank Leahy's Huskies.
The Fordham Rams, practically
certain of an invitation to Miami's
Orange Bowl despite their single loss
to St. Mary's in mid-season, hope to
make an impressive showing against
their local rivals, New York Univer-
sity, at Yankee Stadium.

"I believe in giving my wife something sensible for
Christmas. She's a practical person . . . says she
wants something that she'll use every day, that
won't be forgotten after the holidays.
"Well, she won't forget THIS gift. An electric range
is a gift thatlasts. She's always wanted one-and
it tops the list for usefulness. Do I sound selfish?
You're wrong. There's sentiment wrapped up in my
choice. Anything that lightens her job of cooking
meals shows thoughtfulness and consideration. I
know-I've tried getting meals myself."
The man's right. When you bring the magic of elec-
tricity into your home, you open up a whole new
world. Tireless, quiet, inexpensive servants take over
your household drudgery. Electric cooking and electric
water heating lift two major burdens from your wife's
shoulders. This Christmas, be one of the thousands
who have learned a simple truth: The gifts that give
the most are the gifts that serve the best. . .The
