Varsity Five Gives Poor
Exhibition; Penn Loses
SwimmingMeet, 51-23
Swimmers Take
All First Places
Save for a brief but prolific out-
burst of scoring at the start of the
second half, the Wolverine basketball
team hardly looked like the same
quintet that swamped Michigan State
a week ago as they slopped thei
way to a 36-16 victory over a hap-
less Michigan Normal team last night
at Yost Field House.
Perhaps Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan's charges were overconfident;
perhaps they had an off night; or
maybe it was the inferior caliber of
their opposition that made the Wol-
verines look so poorly.
But the Varsity's performance last
night was far below par for a team
that opens a stiff Big Ten cam-
paign within a few weeks.
The Wolverines' passing and ball
handling was slipshod; they took
66 shots during the course of the
eve1ing and connected only 15 times;
and at times during the first half
proved suckers for some simple block-
out plays'that thesYpsi cagers worked
to ring up baskets.
First Half Close Throughout
Michigan never led Normal by
more than four points at any
stage of the first half, and it was
only by virtue of hoops by Captain
Herb Brogan, Jim Mandler and Bob
Fitzgerald near the close of the half
that the Varsity managed to leave
the floor with a meager 16-12 ad-
Oosterbaan must have injected
some fire into the squad during the

nated team at the' beginning of the
second half.

Overwhelms Penn
(Special to Tile. Daily)
BUFFALO, N.Y., Dec. 14. - With
times that were far from good, Mich-
igan's indomitable swimming team
shattered the existing Niagara Asso-
ciation records in every event tonight
as they overwhelmed the University
of, Pennsylvania, 51 to 23 at the Buf-
falo Athletic Club.
Matt Mann's National champs won
every first place on the program as
they inaugurated their 1940-41 sea-
son in an auspicious manner before
a packed audience.
Sophomores and veterans alile
shared the glory of victory as the
youthful Jack Patten and veteran
Charley Barker led the. assault on
the hapless Quakers.
Patten Takes Two Events
Patten took both the 220 and 440
yard free style distance races to
make his bow to collegiate circles.
His time in the 220 was 2:19.9, slight-
ly over two seconds above the Big
Ten record for that event. He came
back in the 440 in 5:14.5, a new
Niagara Association record despite
its mediocrity.

WARM SPRINGS, GA., Dec. 14-(N)
-President Roosevelt ended a cruise
over nearly 4,000 miles of the Cari-
bbean and Atlantic today, assured by
a personal inspection that sites for
American defense bases in Jamaica,
St. Lucia, and Antigua were satis-

Pointing up evidence of Anglo-
American friendship, the cruise took
the President into the waters of a
belligerent power for the first time
since the current conflict began in
Europe. He paused at more than half
a dozen British islands, and also at
the French island of Martinique.

A Goodfellow Army of over 300 de-

a concerted attempt to raise this
year's Goodfellow Fund to an un-
precedented peak.
Including many of the campus'
prominent students and faculty, the

for one day for charity.

Student Registrees
May Enter Canada
Without 'Permits
Students of draft age planning to
travel either to or through Canada
during Christmas vacation will not
be required to receive permission
from their local selective service
According to A. C. Pack, chairman
of the Ann Arbor Draft Board, a
ruling was passed Friday night which
reversed a decision earlier this week
requiring permits.
"As long as students who have reg-
istered will not be drafted or con-
sidered for the draft until July 1,
we see no reason why permits should
be needed for Canadian travel," Mr.
Pack said yesterday. Formerly per-

Charlie Chaplin Films To Open
New Art Cinema Series Today

The new Art Cinema League film
series opens at 8:15 p.m. today at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre with the
showing of five Keystone comedies
starring filmdom's top comedian of
the past 20 years, Charlie Chaplin.
A few tickets are still available at
the League and Union, priced at $1
for the series of four evenings of
movie entertainment planned. No
single admissions to individual per-
formances will be sold.
The Keystone comedies which lead
the league's bill tonight are the typ-
ical slapstick efforts of the 1920 pro-
ductions that stressed pie-throwing,

baggy, patched pants, black roller
derby, crooked cane, tiny moustache
and toes turned out at right angles.
Even in the 1920's the actor was
known throughout the world for his
effective pantomine.
The pictures will be silent, but ar-
rangements have been made for a
musical score to accompany them.
Ticket holders will also be given
the opportunity to see "The Unholy
Three," one of the greatest ter-
rorizing horror pictures of all time
starring the "man of a thousand
faces," the late Lon Chaney, on Jan.
