footkgl1 team won the championship
of the East Quadrangle league yes-
ter ay, by overcoming Fletcher Hall,
13-9. ,
Fletcher 'held a 2-0 lead at half-
timp, mainly due to some great kick-
ing, by Walt Fish. Fish booted the
ball out of 'bounds on the Prescott
4-yard, line from midfield, and then,
after Prescott had gotten out of this
hole, Fish kicked the ball to the
Prescott 5, and several plays later
Ken Butler broke through the Pres-
cott line and caught Dick Body-
combe for a safety.
Prescott Gets First Break
Prescott got its first scoring oppor-
tunity midway in the third quarter
when Fred Dornblaser blocked a punt
on the Fletcher 30. Prescott then
lipedup with groups of three men
spraad out on each flank about 15
yards from the center. From this un-
4thodox arrangement,AugustAl-
tese ,ompeted pass after pass until
hetossed to Les Brown for a score.
Prespott then made the tally 7-2 on
pass from Altese to Lou Telbizoff
for the extra point. 0
The second Prescott score came
sops, after. Altese gathered in a Flet-
ther pass and ran to the Fletcher 17
on thq last play of the third quarter,
and. again employing, the spread f or-
rnation Prescott hit pay dirt several
play later, this time on a pass from
Altese to. Telbizoff.
Fish Makes Long Run
An amazing 75-yard run, by Fish
gave Fletcher its only touchdown
late in the game. After receiving a
kick on his 25, Fish appeared 'to be
trapped at the 35, but broke away
and threaded his way through the
entire Prescott team to complete the
run. Just 35 secondshremained to
play' after Joe Proctor had added the
extra point and though Fletcher tried
-to get possession of the ball by an
onsides kickoff, Prescott kept poses-
sion till the end of the game.
By this victory Prescott earned the
right to meet Williams House for the
dormitory championship under the
lights at Wines Field next week.
Eastern Jaunt
Tank Season
Practice--the molder of champions.
And with this in mind Michigan's
championship nautical aggregation,
present Big Ten and National Cl-
legiate titleholders, has been hard at
work in the Sports Building pool
since a week before school began.
Coach Matt Mann expects the
Wolverine tankers to be ir top shape
when they shove off on Nov. 26 for
a series of meets and exhibitions in
the Fast. The mermen will leave
Ann Arbor immediately after classes
cease, drive all night, and arrive in
Amherst, Mass., on the morning of
Thursday, Nov. 27.
Amherst First, On List
On Friday, Nov. 28, the natators
will face Amherst at 3 p.m., and then
take 'on Deerfield Academy at 5 p.m.
That same night they will drive to

Smith College to put on two exhi-
bitions, one at 8 o'clock and the other
at 9. The following day will find
the Wolverines traveling 100 miles to
Providence, R.I., for a meet with an
all-star Brookline crew. And if that
weren't enough swimming and rid-
ing -for a four day sojourn, they will
double back 70 miles to tangle with
a hother all-star aggregation that
night, this time the Olneyville star
studded water team.
The Michigan crew expects some
difficulty in the meets against the
Brookline and Olneyville squads. Both
of these all-star- teams are composed
of top flight swimmers who travel
throughout the country giving exhi-
bitions. The eastern trip will give
the Wolverines their first taste of
competition this year.
Coach Mann announced yesterday
that Friday, Dec. 12, will be the date
of the sixth annual swimming gala
presented by the Michigan team and
stars brought in from other cities.
The Wolverine mentor said that this
year's event will be replete with ex-
hibtions, clown acts, and races, plus
a bevy of 24 beautiful girls imported
from Chicago for a surface act.
As is customary, part of tke pro-
ceds will be turned over to the Wo-
men's Athletic Association for its
