Puckmen Face
London Outfit
In First Test
Team Will Seek Revenge
Over Sextet Of Veterans
At Coliseum Tomorrov
When Michigan's hockey sextet
takes the ice tomorrow night, it will
be facing a veteran London A. C. out-
fit. Seven members of the team
which downed the Wolverines 7-5 last
year are crossing the border as the
Canadians attempt to make it two in
a row in the Coliseum rink.
Tom Moffat, the visitors goalie,
heads the line-up. Moffat spent the
entire game in the nets during last
year's battl' of offenses, but his de-
fense men were too busy playing
around the Michigan goal to give him
much protection. The result was that
the Wolverines punched five goals
past Tom, but indications are that
they will have to fight to pass him
that many times this year.
Defensemen Returning
Two more of last year's team are
foun'd in the starting left and right
defense slots. Ron Sutherland and
Art Barrett are expected to give Cap-
tain Paul Goldsmith and the rest of
the Michigan front line a lot of trou-
ble in trying to score.
Barrett and Gil Robertson, the
third of five London defense men,
each scored once last year, Robertson
garnering the winning marker in the
overtime period, and Barrett follow-
ing three minutes later for the clinch-
Only rookie on the starting team is
flashy Red Geddes. Rumor from
across the border has it that Geddes
is a fast, tricky stick handler, and
will bear watching tomorrow night.
Legg, Southern At Wings
On either side of -Geddes will be
hold-over from last year, Bill Legg at
right wing, and Ed Southern at left.
These two led the attack of last year's
team, and can be counted on to give
goalie Hank Loud plenty to do in the
Last veteran who will see service for
the .London club,, is Norm McLeod,
playing center. McL'eod, a steady
player, played a good game last year,
and will be on the ie for plenty of
time tomorrow night.I
For the Canadians this game will
be the first of a series with teams
from the States. After their battle
with the Wolverines, they will jour-
ney to Champaign for a tilt with the
Indians of Illinois. The Illini were
last year's Big Ten champions, so the
boys from London have a tough
schedule ahead of them.,
glue Squad Gets More
Midwestern Grid Stars
CHICAGO, Dec. 4.-()-Four more
Midwestern football players have
joined the Blue squad which -will
meet tie Grays in the annual charity
game at Montgomery, Ala., Dec. 27.
Lynn Waldorf of Northwesternr\
co-coach of the Blues, said the latest
accepting bids to play were Ed Lech-
nor, Minnesota tackle; James Trim-
ble, Indiana tackle; Robert Fried-
lund, Michigan State end, and Fritz
Howard, a guard from Ohio State.

Squad Averages Over Six Feet

ALL loyal members of the working
class should, by now, be fully ac-
quainted wth the fact that Jim Walk-
er, giant Negro tackle from Iowa, was
chosen on the Michigan all-oppon-
ents team for 1941.
It seems that The Daily Worker,
a newspaper published in New York
City (and whose editorial policy, in-
cidentally, is not concerned in the
slightest with the support of such or-
ganizations as Standard Oil, DuPont
etc.) has been very active in its sup-
port of a football game whicl4 took
place in thie Big Town last Sunday
between the professional New York
Yankees and a picked team of col-
legiate Negro all-stars.
One of the members cf the all-
star team was Jim Walker and, in
publicizing the contest, the Worker
never failed to mention that the
Hawkeye lead been chosen on
the Wolverine all-opposition team.
When the game did come off, as a
matter of fact, this same Jim Wal-
ker was the outstanding player on
the field. He played 60 minutes
and his work in the line was so out-
standing that even the spectators
noticed it, a rare compliment.
And when you come to think of it,I
it is, a little strange that Walker'
wasn't chosen on any all Big Ten
teams or even on any second teams,
as far as we have been able to ascer-
tain. Of course, the conference was
loaded with, good tackles this year
but Mr. Walker played an awful lot
of football. Personally, we think it
will be quite a while before we forget
the exhibition he put on in the Michi-
gan Stadium that rainy afternoon
two months ago when the Hawkeyes

Will Lead Puekmen

held the mighty Maize and Blue to a
6-0 victory.
No one realizes better than we do
that we're getting into a mighty con-
troversial subject but, now that we've
gotten under way, it might be apropos
to express a few definite opinions.
First of all, we are not in favor of
allowing Negroes to play big league
football or baseball. For a number
of reasons, which ought to be pret-
ty obvious, it just wouldn't work.
But we do insist that discrimina-
tion has absolutely no place in col-
legiate sport. In most cases, there
is none. But, when the time comes
to pick the, all-conference, all-
American and all-everthing else
aggregations, it stands out like a
paid admission in the Philadelphia
Phillies' ball park.
And that ain't right.

WELL, the old baseball trading sea-
season is on again and we wish
to go on record as being of the opin-
ion that Joe DiMaggio will not go to
the St. Loui Browns for Johnny Ber-
ai'dino, in spite of the fact that Joe
McCarthy is undoubtedly sincerely
desirous of helping all second divi-
sion clubs . . . if he can help him-
self just a little bit more.
When the big league moguls get
together for a little chat during the
winter, there are alwas some im-
portant deals transacted bu those
who do the transacting are gener-
ally not the, big league moguls. And
the trades concluded by reporters
and fans, unfortunately for the
weaker clubs, almost never have
any effect on the pennant races.
Here's the way one of these deals
usually comes off:
Reporter for Dismal Seepage(Fla.)
Clarion approaches Joe McCarthy,
queries him as to rumors-Joe Gordon
will go to Detroit Tigers for Hank
"Do I look like a candidate for a
laughing academy?" snaps McCar-"
'Ha, ha," laughs scribe, "good old
Joe, always clowning. I'll just go
over and see what Del Baker has to
say about this." Button-holes Tiger
mentor, propounds same question.
Baker fixes this complete idiot
with piteous sneer, turns as if to
leave, then mumbles, "How much
cash do you figure the Yanks will
throw in . . . along with Ernie
Boham and Marius Russo?"
Disillusioned newsman staggers de-
jectedly into bar. Half 'hour later,
staggers out again, files story to Dis-
mal Seepage (Fla.) Clarion to the
effect that Lou Boudreau is rumored
bound for Athletics in straight player
trade for Al Simmons, Boudreau to
manage Indians by wire., Philadel-
phia papers pick up story. Philadel-
phia fans get very excited.
Next day, flash comes over wire
that Indians and A's have concluded
big player trade. Third paragraph
informs all that Indians have given
up Joe (Socko) Glutz, first baseman
on their farm team at Broken Arrow
in the class D 'Seminole Indian
League, for Olem (Race Horse) Mc-
Snish, Philadelphia batting practice
catcher. It is pointed out that this is
a significant trade since Glutz batted
almost .300 two years back when he
was with Spotted Pony in the South-
east Wyoming loop and McSnish is
considered an excellent handler of
pitchers. Philadelphia fans relax and
go to movies.

Giants Secure


-The Cincinnati Reds helped them-
selves and young Lou Boudreau of
the Cleveland Indians in one swoop
today by taking catcher Rollie Hem-
sley out of the American League.
This deal and another by which the,
New York Giants obtained outfielder
Hank Leiber for pitcher Bob Bow-
man and cash came within half a
dozen hours of each other and cli-
maxed, if not closed, the major league
trading at the minor league meetings.
Soma of the big league delegations
departed empty-handed today and
left the convention to draw to a weary
close tomorrow with its accomplish-
ments restricted chiefly to the reor-
ganization of the Giants, some sec-
ondary trades and a surprise legisla-
tive coup by the chain store systems
which sought more freedom in hand-
ling of players in the minors.
The Detroit Tigers, however, wrote,
"completed" after a transaction start-
ed last September which gives them
clear title to Bill Hitchcock, Kansas
City's star infielder.
The Tigers, who owed the Ameri-
can Association club two players un-
der the arrangement, today sent the
Blues George Stainback, 29-year-old
outfielder, and Boyd Perry, 25-year-
old infielder.
Baseball observers said the deal im-
plied that Hitchcock,-a former Au-
burn football player, would be De-
troit's regular shortstop next season.
He was a third baseman most of his
time with Kansas City, but also can
play shortstop.
Hitchcock is reported to have cost
the Tigers $80,000-$50,000 in cash
plus the value of Stainback and Perry
on the open market.

For the first time in many moons,
Michigan's basketball squad will av-
eragewell over six feet iniheight.
Not sincexthe days when Johnny
'Gee, big six foot-nine inch center
captained the 1936-37 quintet has a
Wolverine cage team had so many tall
men on one team.. That was the year
a tall, baby-faced junior by the name
of Jake Townsend won All-Confer-
ence laurels at center-a position he
played only on a few occasions that
season. And that was also the year
a five foot, eight inch "midget"
named Herm Fishman crashed the
Varsity line-up at guard and turned
in a stellar performance all season
Patanelli Was Also Tall
Another tall man on Coach Frank-
lin Cappon's team that year was a
rangy senior-Matt Patanelli, 1936
grid leader-who bowed out of Big
Ten basketball circles when he led the
cagers to a rousing victory over Wis-
consin in the final game of the sea-
Only two of Coach Benny ooster-
baan's first eleven men are below the
six foot mark, with Big Jim Mandler,
six foot, four inch junior gaining the
distinction of being the tallest mem-
ber of the 1941-42 quintet. His closest
rival for this honor is sophomore
Ralph Gibert, a six feet two and a
half lad from Flint.
Comm, Doyle Over Six
Mel Comin and Leo Doyle, two jun-
iors and lettermen from last year's
squad, and senior Bob Antle are
grouped at the six feet two level, with
Capt. Bill Cartmill and two sopho-
mores, husky Bill MacConnachie and
lanky Wally Spreen, standing six feet
one. Bob Shemky is the only man of
the first eleven men who measures
*six feet even.
The two so-called midgets are soph-
omores Morrie Bikoff and senior Don
Holman who "just barely touch the
five foot, ten inch mark. Neither of
them are at a disadvantage because
of their height since both of them are
excellent shots. '
Yesterday's practice found Oos ter-

baan following along the same lines
he did the day before-first working
on the rotating offense and then di-
viding the squad into two teams, the
"reds" and the "whites," for a scrim-

Doyle, had little trouble in trouncing
the "reds," 22-10. The "reds" were
formed by Spreen, Bikoff, Gibert, Hol-
man and themky-Antle taking
Shemky's !place when W~s ankle start-
ed to give him trouble. When the"
smoke had cleared away, Mandler had
scored eight points and Comin six to
lead their team in scoring. Shemky
and Holman each got two buckets and
Spreen one for the 'reds'' total of 10.

beautiful mermaids imported from,
Chicago, stages its annual Swim Gala
under the direction of Coach Matt
In a cast headed by the titleholding
Wolverines, Mann has lined up a fem-
inine group of water troupers from
the Windy City who specialize in
floating exhibitions. Also on the pro-
gram will be Kay Curtes and her
famous aqua ballet dancers, composed
of eight girls and four men, plus three
clowns who will provide many a
chuckle throughout the entire eve-
According to the Maize and Blue
ientorthis year's Gala will top any
of the previous performances, which
have won acclaim throughout the
Midwest as ranking among the best
shows of this type ever staged. The
program will offer everything "from
soup to nuts," speaking in a swim-
ming way, and is guaranteed to keep
every spectator glued to his seat dur-
ing the performance.
Featured will be the Michigan
swimming team, Big Ten and Na-
tional I Intercollegiate champs. The
Varsity will entertain with special
handicap races as well as the regu-
lar events, highlighted by freak races
such as the "double oar" in which
two men interlock arms and legs and
battle it out with a similar duo. There
will also be exhibitions of both low
and high board diving, and a special
life-saving show.
Guaranteed to provide a super-
colossal evening of entertainment, the
Gala will also offer campus groups a
chance to express their nautical ten-
dencies. One of the big attractions

will be finished in plenty of time to
allow those who wish, attend the Soph
Prom which is being held on the
same night.
As in past years, part of the pro-
ceeds will be turned over to the Wo-
men's Athletic Association to further
the fund being accumulated for a
women's swimming pool. The stands
will accommodate only 1,000 spec-
tators, and it will be first come, first
servpd.- Tickets are now on sale at
the Athletic Office.
Coach Mann left for Chicago last
night to attend the schedule-makers'
meeting of the Big Ten. The official
swimming schedule is expected to be
released by ttie conference big-wigs
sometime today.
