aggressive type of play both on of-

other hand, originally was a center
until Oosterbaan converted him tc

him too much, Morrie Bikoff will take

Fencers Work To
Sport A Futt
Michigan may have a Varsity fenc-
ing team in the not too distant fu-
ture-at least that is the goal of the
30 men who practice three times a
week at the Sports Building.
This year promises to be the best
yet for student fencers. Scimitar,
national honorary rencing society,
has organized a team of its mem-
bers here with the result that for
the first time a group of University
fencers will be able to meet outside
opponents. In fact, the team will
be one of a six team league including.
Olivet, -Michigan State, Wayne, the
Grosse Pointe Sword Club, and the
Sally de Tuscan Club.1
Preparing the team for its first
meet on Jan. 18 are Ray Chambers
and Johnny Dreher, both of !whom
are fencers with considerable experi-
ence. According to Chambers, the
meets will include duels with the.
foil, saber, and epee with the num-
ber of duels dependent on the amount
and quality of material.
With Chambers, his brother, Pearce
and Dreher as playing coaches, the
Puck Team To Play.

end of vacation, the Michigan hockey
team will meet a strong aggregation

The Wolverine puckmen will re-
turn to Ann Arbor, on Dec. 30 to
practice for their first encounters
of the season with the Huskies.
Coach Eddie Lowrey will have his
boys working at top speed in prepar-
ation for the two contests in which
the Michigan team will attempt to
hold its supremacy over the Tech
