The Cracker Barrel
By Mike Dan


Swan Song . ..
USUALLY when Daily Sports writ-
ers type out their last columns
they talk about three main subjects:
first, how they enjoyed being with
the team hither, thither and yon;
second, how being connected in a
small way with the various Varsity
squads has taught them a new sense
of sportsmanship and fair play, and
lastly how their own ability as a
sports writer has increased since they
were permitted to hold a senior job
on The Daily.
Somehow or other I can't say any
of these things.
The only reason I really enjoyed
taking trips with the team was be-
cause: I like trains; I like to eat in
the diners; I enjoy meeting new
faces (especially girls) and because
I wanted to get out of Ann Arbor
for a while.
AS FOR learning a new sense of
sportsmanship and fair play I
can't seem to see any difference be-
tween the way an athlete acts and
the way the average student acts.
People are always telling me'how
much sports can do for a boy's char-
Acter. Personally, sports have nothing
to do with character. If you're good
you play; if you are not you write
sports, or sit in the stands.
Finally my writing has not be-
come any better. I still can't spell.
.11 know four adjectives, at, two
parts of speech and every morning
when I get up, my roommate asks
me, "couldn't you find anything
better to write about?"
OW don't get me wrong, Charlie.
(Charlie's probably the only guy
till reading this) I'm not a cynic. It's
just that I think sports aren't too
Tnportant these days. I can't see
sports writers calling the present crop
of athletes "greats or bests" when
lialf their competition is in uniform.

Nor can I see any reason for keeping
sports on the huge scale that is con-
SUPPOSE this last column bus-
iness permits me to give some
advice (like the last gurgle of a dy-
ing swan). So, next time you pick
up your newspaper read the front
page first, the editorial page next,
then the sport page and funnies.
Sports nowadays should be treat-
ed as a luxury, hence my saying
"read the front page first" means
business before pleasure-to coin a
NOW I want to say something about
The Daily's problems that are now
being so prominently aired.
People (but I won't say who) don't
want The Daily to print certain things
that concern the University. They
take the same attitude that my moth-
er takes when I talk about my Uncle
Hubert, who's been married five times.
The only real difference is that
my Uncle Hubert is personal bus-
iness but what The Daily Editors
print is vital to the student body.
Between you and me, though, don't
think The Daily couldn't write a lot
of stuff like the Uncle Hubert bus-
iness if they wanted to.
That reminds me, do you know.. .
Never mind Prof. G. E. Densmore,
Chairman of the Board of Control of
Student Publications just came into
the building.
* * *
IN CLOSING may I say the past
four years on The Daily have been
the happiest I have ever experi-
enced. Not necessarily because of
the work, but because of the people
I have worked with.
I hope the day is not too far off
when I can say a Michigan win over
Minnesota is the biggest thing on my
Good Bye and Thank You

Bucks to Bring
Collegiate, AAU
Diving Champs
Anderson, Dempsey
Conceded Win over
Michigan's Divers
Those swimming fans who are lucky
enough to squeeze themselves into
the Natatorium of the Sports Build-
ing this Saturday night will see as
good an exhibition of diving as has
ever been reflected in the waters of
the pool. For representing Ohio State
will be the two best performers in
diving today.
These two are Miller Anderson and
Frank Dempsey and between them
are held the three biggest diving titles
in the country. Dempsey is Big Ten
and National Intercollegiate cham-
pion and Anderson,-only a sophomore,
already holds the National AAU
Last year the Buckeyes had a div-
ing duo that fully lived up to the tra-
dition of perennial Ohio State domi-
nation in ths event. Dempsey and
Charlie Batterman finished one-two
in the Conference meet. They had
succeeded, the great former Bucks, Al
Patnik and Earl Clark, on the pin-
nacle of collegiate diving. And both
would be back again this year.
Thus it was that Coach Mike Peppe
was expected to be without any diving
worries for this year. Then on top of
these two was placed Anderson, who
as a freshman earned a berth on the
AAU All-American team in the low
board event. That shoved Batterman
out of action in dual meets for only
two may be entered by a team in each
event. On any other team in the coun-
try he would be welcomed with jubi-
lance. At Ohio State, however, Charlie
will just have to watch the other two
take the glory in dual meets.
Anderson has been called by Demp-

Faces the Best

diver, who will face Buckeye aces
Miller Anderson and Frank Demp-
sey this Saturday.
sey and Peppe "even better than Al
(Patnik) and Earl (Clark) ."
Michigan will enter Alex Canja and
Lou Haughey. Alex is still improving
over last year and will, according to
Matt Mann, give whoever wins second
place a real battle. But he isn't as
finished a diver as either Dempsey
or Anderson. Haughey was a high
school flash for Battle Creek but he
showed at the Michigan AAU's last
week that, even when he is 'hot,' he
isn't quite as good as Canja.
So, even this usually optimistic
Matt concedes that the Bucks will
pick up eight big points in this event.
Wings, Bruins Clash
DETROIT, Jan. 20.- ()- The De-
troit Red Wings will attempt to crack
the five-game winning streak of the
front running Boston Bruins tomor-
row night at Olympia in a National
Hockey League. game. Boston has a
3%/2 game margin over the second
place Red Wings, but has played three
more games.

345th Fliers
to Bring Fast,
Short Squad
Wolverines Trying for
Third Straight Victory
over Service Teams
The Army gets another crack at
Michigan's cagers tonight at 7:30
when the 345th Army Air Base Squa-
dron five will attempt to break the
Wolverines' jinx over service teams
at Yost Field House.
To date the Maize and Blue have
played and won two service contests,
both against Selfridge Field's Fliers.
The 345th lads have also tangled
with the Selfridge outfit, but they
didn't fare so well, bowing, 40-30. On
these comparative scores, Michigan
will be favored to cop tonight's fracas.
However, the Maize and Blue have-
n't forgotten what a fight the Self-
ridge Fielders gave them in their
initial encounter. Only a last second
basket salvaged the game. Moreover,
the Wolverines have been alternately
hot and cold and an off night tonight
would cost them victory No. 7 for the
Fliers Lack Height
The Airmen will be conceding a
big height advantage to the Maize
and Blue tonight. Tallest man on the
visitors' quintet is six-footer Louis
Kundigen who will hold down one
of their guard spots. Leading the Fli-
ers into action will be the diminutive
but dangerous Hubert Gilman, cap-
tain and starting forward. The other
three berths will be filled by center
Bob Garvin, forward Jack Morris and
guard Jim Gilbert.
Michigan's lineup will be the same
which opened last week against Wis-
consin. Big Jim Mandler, Wolverine
captain and scoringleader with 81
tallies for nine games, will again be
at his familiar pivot spot. Jim's six
feet-four should be a big factor for
the Maize and Blue tonight.
Doyle, Strack at Guards
leeo Doyle, who has been hitting the
strings pretty regularly in Conference
games for the Wolverines, will hold
down one of the guard posts with
Dave Strack Maize and Blue long
shot artist, pitching them' from the
other guard spot.
At the forwards Coach Bennie Oos-
terbaan will have Gerry Mullaney,
whose work under the baskets has
been a bright spot in the Wolverine
offense, and Mel Comin, who carved
a niche in the hearts of Maize and
Blue fans with his fighting play
against Wisconsin last week.
For reserves Bennie can call on Bob
Wiese, Don Lund, Ralph Gibert, Merv
Pregulman, Harold Anderson and Bill

Few are the times when a team gets
beaten and enjoys it, but for the
Michigan wrestlers, Monday night's
defeat by Michigan State came so
close to being a win that the grapplers
were actually happy.
Reasons for this jubilance lie in the
facts that State was runner-up in the
National Collegiates last year, that
they had three NCAA titlists on their
roster, and that they were favored to,
wipe the mats with the Wolverine
warriors both figuratively and literal-
ly. Add to this that Capt. Manley
Johnson, Michigan's sole claim to a
national title, became ill and couldn't
Kopel Gets Lead
Dick Kopel started double-crossing
the dope bucket by disposing of a
mighty tough customer in one Herb
Thompson. Kopel actually pinned Mr.
Thompson, but the officials ruled
that the match had ended before the
latter's shoulders touched the mat.
Merle Jennings then disposed of
Bob McDonald as was expected of the
National titlist, but considering Mc-
Donald was making his grappling de-
but he made a creditable showing.
Brother Burl Jennings, also a Nation-
al titlist, just recovered from an ap-
pendectomy, gained an early advan-
tage on Harold Rudel, but Rudel

staged a great comeback against the
tiring champ.
Not knowing he would have to
wrestle until the eleventh hour, and
then having to shed several pounds,
which didn't help his condition,
George McIntyre subbed for the ail-
ing Johnson and was finally pinned
by the Spartans' third title-holder,
Bill Maxwell.
Sophomores Surprise
A 13air of surprising sophomores up-
set the State plans further by turning
back their Green clad foes in neat
fashion. PeterSpeek had his oppo-
nent's back on the canvas all eve-
ning, but he was unable to deliver
that final cou fini, while Bob Allen
laid Burl Boring prone and pinned
him for the Wolverines' only five
point victory.
Tom Mueller, as instructed, played
cautiously and stayed away fromh his
more experienced opponent in the
hopes that Johnny Green would pin
the giant, Mike Dendrinos, in the
final match to give Michigan a tie.
Mueller subsequently lost, and al-
though Green rode Dendrinos like a
bronco, Johnny had to be content
with a decision victory.
Saturday afternoon the Wolverines
will seek their first Big Ten victory
when they play host to Ohio State's
wrestling team.

Wrestlers Show Promise Even
While Being Downed by State

Those students having lockers
at the Sports Building and Water-
man Gym who do not expect to
use the lockers next semester,
must remove their clothing and
turn in their lockers and towels
for refund before Jan. 30.
