1 eDear Hal:
Well, I guess we showed you.

the bigger men on the Maize and
Blue cinder aggregation (whose
name we cannot divulge) is becoming
dissatisfied, and threatens to offer
} his services to Slippery Rock Teach-
ers. if his demands are not met . . .
.- . Mentor Ken Doherty is losing
;plenty of sleep these nights, too . .
. . the malcontent is one of the best
men who ever raked a broad-jump
pit for the Maize and Blue . . . . his
timing and poise are the result of
many seasons of intensive training
This brings to mind the scandal
that blasted the campus three years
ago when Flash Wojiechowkovski
went on a one-man strike and Mentor
Doherty had no one who could roll
back the iron shot-put ball in a way
that could inspire confidence in the
cinder aggregation . . . Insiders are
agog over a report that there is a

dearth of good sophomore cheer-
leaders at Dismal Seepage Wesleyan.
. . . According to our esteemed col-
league, Richard Harding Bolenko-
witz of the Eloise A&M Wet Sheet,
the A&M Bugs' cinder squad will be
without the services of assistant man-
ager True Blue, who was recently put
on the shelf when he missed the
pole vault 'pole for the first time in
three years and was kayoed when the
pole walloped him on the noggin.

Beta Theta Pif got a stranglehold
on the fraternity pinning champion-
ship last night at the Tri Delt House
when the Betas placed seven men in
the semi-finals, two more than Phi
Delta Theta, the only other house!
with a good chance to win.
Bud Juke of Beta Theta Pi won tho
only championship decided last night
by pinning Delta sister Babs Kallikak
in 53 seconds in the final match in
the unlimited weight class. All told,.
it took exactly one minute and 55 sec-
onds for Juke to throw two opponents
and claim the reward. /,
However, the quickest job of the
evening was turned in by Man Moun-
tain (Stranglehold) Mahoney of Phi
Gamma Delta who reached the finals
in the 175 pound division by pinning
Helda Grady of Theta in 20 seconds.
Although the Phi Delta Thetas
placed five men in the semi-finals,
their chances of winning were cinched;
by the fact that three of these were
competing on one division, the 165
pound damsels. The Betas, on the
other hand, showed more evenly dis-
tributed strength, placing men in five
weight classes. Since the scoring is
on the basis of five points for each
winner, three points for the runner-
up, and a black eye for each of the
other two semi-finalists, Beta seems

Campus Is Agog
Over New Sport
In an interview yesterday Bob
Shedd announced(that the Junior Phi
Bete club had perfected a new game
called gumbo-ball, andhe predicted
that the game would soon be a cam-
pus rage. !
Shedd, when asked what the game
involved, said, "Gumbo-ball will cer-
tainly take the campus by storm with-
in the next few weeks."
According to Shedd, originator of
the gan e, gumbo-ball, which tests
to the utmost all human capacities,
is slated for a huge following as soon
as the campus hears about it.
- When interviewed as to whether he
would sponsor a varsity gumbo-ball
team, Mentor Fritz Crisle said, "No."
Mentor Crisler did say however that
gumbo-ball was destined to gain a
large following among campus sports

Icemnan Squad
Recalls Bfetter
Days.In Daze
With Michigan's hockey squad
making its first timely appearance
of the season Saturday night against
the Boston -V..'s this seems to be
a pretty good time to look back to
last year at this time . . . if you 'can
spare the time.
Back in the halcyon time of * 365
days ago, the Michigan puck aggre-
gation, as aggregated by Mentor Ed-
die Lowrey, was turning over in thew
doldrums 'on its way down to the
dumps. Two star wingmen were in-
capacitated with the D.T.'s while the
-Wolverine athletes' goalie had been
afflicted by the athlete's footie. Men-
tor Lowrey (not to be confused with
Mentor Williams) was literally tear-
ing the floor as he strewed his hair.
with cigarette butts.
Ice-Men Sloughed
In a previous muscle tussle, the
ice-men had been sloughed by a
54-40 count- in an all-service battle
with the Salvation Army. At the end
of the first chukker, there was one
Wolverine on the ice, two looking for
St. Joseph's Mercy, and three in the
penalty box. The shatteringly bat-
tered remnant of a once great
rinkrew, stick in hand and heart in
mouth, was cut down mercilessly by
the Battling Brigadiers.
But This Year
But this year, according to locker-
room reports, the hallowed name of
Michigan will no longer be dragged
through the sawdust by the opposi-
tion. Never again shall the outlanders
grind a Wolverine down to frigid
rigidity. The sports staff scribes over
in the Maynard Street hangout will
not receive any more Associated
Press reports of Wolverines humbled
at the Coliseum.
The gauntlet has been thrown
down, the die is cast and six pairs of
unused skates are on the block.
Sports staff and Women's staff
have changed pages for today's
issue. Perhaps you've noticed.
