Men have no imagination. For
years and years and years they have
been playing the same old sports.
In the fall they kick a football, in the
winter they chuck a basketball, in
the spring they also make passes.
Boring, n'est ce pas?
What male has yet burned with
originality and figured out a tricky
game of sofa bean bag. Something
like this. Everybody sits around on
the sofa, and the person with the
bean bag tries to throw it to some-
one who doesn't expect it, and so
he has to pay a forfeit.
Or does that unexpected confusion
sound like the Prince of Wales drink-
ing game. And does the forfeit sound
like Spin the Milk Bottle. Now there's
a real game for everyone to join in.
Someone spins the milk bottle, and
the person that it points to - well,
if you're bashful nobody gets to look,
and anyway, a better game is Jack
This one is played with a little
pile of variously shaped and colored
bits of wood placed in the middle
of the floor with a lot of people,
alsohon the floor, clustered about
ith tiny hooks in their hands - to
be used on the straws, not the
crouched group -that is, unless
you're standing in back of the group
and then you probably won't be
able to resist the temptation. So,
with the hooks used correctly, you
try to get the straws off the pile
without moving any others. It's
unimaginable how tense the at-
mosphere can become when the
All-American gets in a tight spot.
Doesn't it sound like mad, mad fun?
Plus that, it proves that women can
be sportsters too. They get a little
confused at times, just a little off
the beaten track - but then you don't
pick 'the highway on a moonlight
night, do you? . . .-Jeanne Grump

The athletic department's secret of
the year is out at last: yes, the one-
ccurt dribblers are to have new bas-
ketball uniforms. One all-important
question remains: will the new out-
fits be of blue shirts and yellow shorts,
vice-versa, or will the team appear in
Until the uniforms arrive, it is ad-
visable to postpone purchase of ac-
cessories, as the color scheme will de-
termine the choice. Until the answer
is unveiled, however, young men may
be pondering what type gym §hoes to
purchase for this season's wear. White
with black laces will go with either
scheme; the latest models have
changeable lacings to provide variety
in intercollegiate sports.
A new twist in color is the match-
ing perspiration-anklet and jersey
sets which can be ordered in the ex-
act shade of the shoe-lacings.
Angora jerseys serve the double
purposes of absorbing extra perspir-
ation, and providing the referees
with an easy foul-mark. A slight
brush by the opponent will fuzzily
prove that he is attempting mayhem.
Angora can be easily luxed between
halves to prevent any odorous draw-
backs to the game finale.
For the sake of variety, a con-
trasting hair-bow will offset other
parts of the uniform. These can be
held in place by a soft brown barrett,
holding the hair firm at shoulder
level. For short bobs, a smaller rib-
bon can be placed pertly atop fore-
head curls with small bobby pins.
binations will serve double duty as
pajama-supplementors in the cold
campus dormitories. If kept clean
by year-to-year washing, the be-
hooded type garment will provide the
extra warmth needed during the
winter months. In gay colors: pink,
yellow, or creamy blue, they can
change the perennial nightmares in-
to evening frolics of beauty.
Team To Melt
In Two Days
Who Will Play What When
Doesn't Matter; They're
All Going Along Anyway
Coach Eddie Lowrey of the Mich-
igan hockey team last night named
a traveling squad of ten boys to make
the sojourn to Colorado Springs,
Colo., for the two-game tussle with
Colorado College. The boys, all
pepped up for a big time to decide
who's right, will leave at 1:30 p.m.
Those making the trip are talkative
Hank Loud, goalie; baby-faced Char-
ley Ross and blond, villainous Bert
Stodden, defensemen; and smoothie
Paul Goldsmith, battler Johnny Gil-
ls, curly-haired Max Bahrych, cute
Jim Lovett, tricky Bob Kemp, hand-
some Bob Collins, and shifty Gil
Samuelson are all forwards.
Tall, dark, 'n handsome Goldsmith,
the answer to any coed's prayer, will
probably hold down the center posi-
tion on one of the two forward walls
and the man from Minnesota, John
Gillis, will be at the middle spot on
the other front line.
The excited boys told this Daily
reporter that they are all set to tear
out the Colorado fellows' hair when
they tangle on the ice but, they em-
phasized, no tickling of any variety
will be in play. It will be a safe
game for women to glance at, they
predicted, and one in which much
skating style and form will be ap-
Paul Goldsmith will scare the
woolly Westerners at the first play
when he opens up with that Groton
accent. Mystery man Ross will cap-
tivate the female spectators with the
militarish gash on his cheek, which
is current draft fashion, and will
thereby upset the men on the rink
who will be trying to keep a discern-
ing eye on their gals.
Outstanding dresser on the rink is
adorable Loud who is clothed equally
well on campus.

Will PlayBig Ten
(By The Associated Press)
After debating for some time the
advisability of discontinuing the
meeting of their track and field ath-
letes with those of the Big Ten, the
Pacific Coast Conference announced
its intention to carry on with the
Western Conference in their all-star
track and field meet.
The question of severing the track
and field meeting of the two confer-
ences came up as a result of the,
strong sentiment of the westerners
against the Big Ten's refusal to let
any of its teams play in the Rose
Bowl. The proposal was voted down,a
however, when a telegram from a;
Big Ten representative was received,
stating that it would like to continue
the spring competition.
Created For Action
by Frances Aaronson
This new and refreshingly dif-
ferent 11-purpose sport suit is
modeled here by Michigan's athlete
of the week who modestly prefers
to remain anonymous. The trim,
figure-flattering lines of the outfit
can be displayed to best advantage
by the dashing pose full of bodily
action such as the model has as-
sumed. Notethe knee high socks.

Czar Landis Gets
Still Another Term
(By The Associated Press)
The term of Kenesaw Mountain
Landis, "judge" and czar of the base-
ball world since 1921, was extended
for four more or until Jan. 12, 1946,
today by a joint session of the Ameri-
can and National Leagues at their
annual winter session.

Reviving an old Daily tradition,

The news is true, even though it

The Staffs have enjoyed their

Squad To Match Muscles
With Big TenChampions
The Mid-Western wrestling tour-
na ment is only a day away ahd
Cliff Keen, varsity wrestling coach,
has been trying to work a squad into
Keen had anticipated sending at
least one complete squad to the meet,
but because of the lack of condition
of most of the men, he has decided
to take only five of them. Those
who are leaving with Keen by car'
Friday morning are: Jim Galles at
175 pounds, Emil Lockwood and
Capt. Bill Combs at 165 pounds, and
Tom Weidig at 128 pounds. Galles,
who is the only one of the five who
have participated in the tournament
before, took a fourth place last year
when he entered unattached.
This will be the first time that
Michigan will be represented by a
team, though this is the third year
that the meet has been held in Chi-
cago's McKinley Park. When the
first meet was held Michigan was not
notified and was therefore unable to
participate. Last year a few grap-
plers travelled to Chicago unattached
and ended up with two second places
and one fourth.
Indiana, possessor of powerful
wrestling teams, has won both pre-
vious meets. The Hoosier hair-pull-
ing grunters have been represented
by at least two complete squads both
Close to a hundred wrestlers who
will participate are those represent-
ing the Big Ten schools and YMCA
teams, though the meet has been
completely dominated by the'Big Ten
in the past.
Big Ten rules will be used as will
the standard AAP weights. To the
winner in each division goes a gold
watch and a trophy will be presented
to the winning team.
The matches will begin Friday and
will be completed Saturday night.

NEW YORK, Dec. 11.--/P)-The
Cincinnati Reds, successors to the
New York Yankees as baseball's world
champions, today were voted the out-
standing team of the year.
Twenty-six out of 62 sports editors
paiticipating in the tenth annual
Associated Press poll put the Reds at
the head of their list for first win-
ning their second straight National
League pennant and then whipping
the Detroit Tigers in the World
Series. In all, the Reds got 121
points, which are figured on a basis
of three for a$ first-place vote, two
for second and one for third.
The Yankees, after leading for four
straight years, failed to get a point.
