Mann's second year men showed
the genial coach that they mean bus-
iness as fellows like Jack Patten, Ted
Horlenko and Bob West sparked the
natators to victories over Penn, the
University of Pittsburgh and the New
York A.C. in quick succession.
That is why the outlook for a
Purdue team coached by one of Matt
Mann's pupils, Dick Papenguth, is
rather dark. They've already been'
whipped pretty soundly by a strong
Northwestern squad, 54-30. But;
they've been drilling hard in antici-
pation of this meet with the Wolver-
ines and should provide a good show.
The Mystery Bowl .. .
A mysterious, middle-aged Hollywood agent named "Rig" Rigby dropped
into Ann Arbor yesterday and laid plans for a proposed Florida charity
gridiron battle, but the Double will not be the least surprised if this game
never takes place.
There are several reasons for my feeling this way about the matter. In
the first place, the round-faced Mr. Rigby turns out to be connected with
the recent Los Angeles British relief grid fracas that fell by the wayside after
an attack from the Shriners in San Francisco.

Harmon went on to say that he agreed to contact a group of college

Monday night, upon Rigby's request, he telephoned Johnny Kim- M andler Lead

Bloody but unbowed, .he Michigan
hockey team went grimly to work
last night in preparation for Satur-
day's invasion of Ann Arbor by the
strong Sarnia A. C. Club.
Last week, lest we forget, Eddie
Lowrey's boys traveled to Minneapolis
for two games with what they thought
was a weaker Minnesota squad than
they had faced in years.
The Gophers may have been weak,
but they didn't give a great deal of
evidence of the fact. For an instance,
take Thursday night. A smiling, con-
fident Michigan team skated onto
the ice for a concentrated attempt
at breaking the spell which the Min-
nesota pucksters have held over them
for lo, these many years.
Approximately two hours later, they
plodded moodily into their dressing
rooms a disappointing 4-0 defeat be-
"Doesn't mean a thing," said Coach
Eddie Lowrey, "they couldn't get
used to the big rink. They played
good hockey tonight. They're accus-
tomed to the big rink now. If they
play as well Saturday, they'll give
the Gophers a real battle."
But, unfortunately, they didn't
play as well Saturday night. Bob
Kemp was sick and didn't even get
into the game. Max Bahrych had a
bad leg and only played a few min-
utes. All in all, things didn't go so
well. In fact, they went very badly.
Final score: Minnesota 7. Michigan 2.
"They just didln't have it Satur-
day," Lowrey announced. "They
played real hockey Thursday and I
was hoping they could do it again
Saturday. But they couldn't. When
we play 'em here their superior speed
won't mean so much because it's a
smaller rink. Meanwhile, we're con-
centrating on next Saturday's game
As yet, bowevcr, the plans are far from settled. Although Rigby's pub- X"A~i -'U ' 1 UV JLRV U

Florida hospitals needs a new wing, and this game could supply the funds.
Aside from Kimbrough and Harmon, other players contacted up till
now include Michigan's former captain, Forest Evashevski, end Ed Frutig,
guard Ralph Fritz and Dave Allerdice, the Princeton passing sensation.
None of the other stars have agreed to play as yet. They will not hear
from Harmon, in fact, until the money is supplied for their transportation
'Yesterday's announcement of the game came as a surprise to many whoj
have been closely following the idea. Several of the Michigan coaches andj
men around who are on the inside of the matter, have claimed before that
the organization behind the idea was a "fly-by-nighter."
Rigby's strange appearance in town is another factor that makes
us wonder. He did everything in his power to keep his name a secret.
When one reporter asked him who he was, he quickly turned and re-
plied, "George .. Yes, you can say my name is Raymond George."
The whole thing is so mysterious and shady that one of the Detroit
papers withdrew its story on the proposed game shortly after its first edition
was on the streets.
What bothers the Double is the fact that Harmon's name will be associ-
ated with the scheme, if it should fall through. That indeed would
Tom has been urged by the promoters to round up one of the squads.
That is his only connection aside from playing in the game.
Which. incidentally; leads me to another point. If Harmon did play,
the four days of practice which he could get before the game would ncer-
tainly be insufficient to allow him to put on a true Harmon gridiron display.
No matter how you look at it, the proposed scheme doesn't meet with
