Wolverine Quintet Plays Host To Michigan Normal'

The OSU Answer...
Action came just when we asked
for it.
Our learned friend, John Dietrich,
sports editor of the OHIO STATE
LANTERN, penned his ideas on the
swimming schedule problem in his
column yesterday. John didn't take
long. He was brief, but powerful,
but senseless. Here is the Buckeye
"Matt Mann is popping off
again . . . Thus far he has been
able to schedule only two dual
meets for this season because, he
says, all the other schools in the
Big Ten and elsewhere, are afraid
of getting whipped.
Can't you picture Matt's discom-
fiture? Here he has the best swim-
ming team in the country-he
says-and nobody will play with
We don't seriously doubt that
the Wolves do have the best college
swimming team in the country, but
it's a little hard to swallow that
stuff about all the other teams
being afraid to meet it. After all,
there's nothing very brutal about a
swimming meet."
Yes, John, you are' perfectly right.
There is nothing brutal about swim-
ming. Mike Peppe, your sawed-off
coach, probably decided his boys
would get more body-contact in a
hard-fought miarble tourney than
meet the Wolverines. Or else, per-
haps he couldn't find a spot that
would fit into Michigan's filled sched-
ule. Or perhaps he doesn't like the
way that Matt Mann buys his play-
ers. Or perhaps, he didn't like the
way that Francis Heydt transferred
to Michigan.
Fiddlesticks, Johnny, fiddlesticks.
Let's get down to the real facts. If
getting soundly whipped isn't "bru-
tal," theni why, pray tell, aren't
Michigan and Ohio swimming
against each other this year?
mon now has a stenographer work-
ing for him.. The U.S. Army could
draft the Ace at $21 per month while
the Chi Bears can't seem to daft
him at $25,000 a year . .. Flop Flora,
with order number 413 in the Mus-
kegum draft, will in all probability
be required to report to the army
next fall instead of winding up his
career on the Michigan gridiron
Jim Mandler, outstanding sophomore
cager, is here on a Rackham schol-
arship. . . awarded strictly on a com-
petitive basis, the scholarship pays
him $500 a year as long as he main-
tains a B average . . Jim is way

inch lad is only 18 years old. He av-
eraged 15 points per game in high
school. . . .

Maize and Blue.
Suffice it to say, Captain Herb
Brogan and his mates don't intend to
break any precedents tonight.
The Hurons haven't won a game
this season. They've lost to Wayne'
Central State Teachers' College and
even their Alumni, and will be pro-
viding an upset if they come close
to the Varsity.
Normal to Have Height Edge
Coach Elton Rynearson's charges
will have the edge in height, but that
should be all. At center the visitors
will have Johnny Grant, big six-foot
four-inch letterman; Ed Kontrymo-
wicz and Captain Burm Misenar, six-
foot-three and six-two, respectively,
will be at the forward posts; and
Fritz Bennetts, another six-footer,
and Johnny Shada, the team's only
short member, will take care of the
guard positions. Misenar and Ben-
netts are the leading Huron scorers.
Because of Ypsi's height advan-
tage and the far-fetched possibility
of an upset, Oosterbaan doesn't plan
to take the game too lightly. Bennie
will employ the same starting line-
up that carried the Varsity to a one-
sided triumph over Michigan State.
Mike Sofiak and Bob Fitzgerald
will start the game at the forward
berths, sophomore Jim Mandler, who
made an impressive debut last week,
will be at center, and Brogan and
George Ruehle will be in the back-
Ruehle Has Injured Knee
Ruehle, however, may be used only
sparingly. The blond senior incurred
a mild case of water-on-the-knee in
the Spartan game and may turn his
job over to Bill Herrmann, Bill Cart-
mill, or Jim Grissen for the greater
part of the evening.
Joe Glasser, one of last year's let-
termen who has been out of action
because of a knee injury thus far,
is expected to break into the lineup

DETROIT, Dec. 13-P)-The De-

York Rangers tonight with a 3 to 2
overtime victory in a vicious, give-
and-take battle that was highlight-
ed by two free-for'all brawls in
which most of the members of both
clubs participated.
Don Grosso, young Detroit forward,
delivered the game-winning goal
halfway through the extra period. It
was a smash from far out that sailed
high into the net.
Detroit took the lead seconds later
when Jack Stewart banged home a
rebound of a shot from the stick of
Sid Abel.

Ken Overlin- Retains
Middleweight Crown
NEW YORK, Dec. 13-(MP)-Ken
Overlin's ring wisdom was even too
much for a "double-13" jinx tonight,
and the ex-sailor retained his World's
Middleweight Championship with an
easy 15-round victory over somewhat
bewildered Steve Belloise in Mad-
ison Square Garden. Overlin weighed
159; Belloise 154.
With the largest crowd of the local
indoor fistic season on hand, Ken
went through this defense of his
crown on Friday the 13th in his 13th
year of fighting and won going away.
He knew too many of the answers
for the rangy New Yorker and gave
him a lesson all the way.

Take one ordinary kitchen, medium size. Add one
electric range. Add automatic electric hot water
service. Put the three together and season with the
magic of electricity. Then serve to a lady who heads
a Christmas list. Result? Extra hours of leisure each
day, afternoons of freedom to do the things she
likes. Here's how-
An electric range ends "pot-watching." No need
to be tied to a kitchen stove. The busy housewife
can put a complete meal into the oven of her elec-
tric range; then she can go out and spend the after-
noon where she pleases. When she comes home at
six o'clock her dinner is waiting-perfectly cooked
and ready to serve.
Does she need hot water for dishes? For houseclean-
ing? For the laundry? Her wish is granted without
lifting a finger. Automatic electric water heating
furnishes plenty of hot water at all hours .. .when
Baby calls in the night, or when Pooch needs a
shampoo, or for a fatigue-chasing bath. You can
enjoy this most willing of all the automatic electric
