Even the so-called "soft" intellectual is forced, through one means or tive mite of tennis wizardry, is expec-

theoretically, at least, is finding new joy in what was once termed "vibrant
At no time, even in pre-war, pre-hardening program days, did men
ever evince much interest in the dance. Ballroom dancing yes, but that's
social, and even the lumbering greats of the gridiron could be found
clearing interference on the dance floor. But "the dance" as an art
expression, never. Modern dance reviews were assiduously avoided by
almost all men, and even if the expressionistic dance was put on by an
all-male group, such as the one Ted Shawn trained, the audience was
composed almost entirely of women and a few protesting males.
Men, who have been the leaders in creative expression elsewhere, seem-
ed to find the beauties of artistic dancing beyond the realm of dignity, and
would not submit.
IT IS ODD to find that modern dance, which is essentially using the body
in such a way as to express o me.nin, or idea, to form a uatteinn ri to
set a 4mood, has been taken over by the Army and Navy, in fact all harden-
ingprograms, and is now incorporated into the exercises.
' When a group of khaki figures goes through a timed bayonet drill,
with precision and ease, each one carrying out the motions exactly as he
has been taught, it is amazing to note how similar the graceful, but at
the same time, well-coordinated movements, are to the #ithe contortions
of a modern dancer. In a modern dance exhibition they would have
given it a high sounding title-"Democracy Becomes Forceful," or some
such name, and there would have been a program explaining the action.
,Music would have led up a striking crescendo screaming "Kill!" But
without the fancy accompaniment the result is the same.
Hundreds of thousands of men are learning modern dance these days.
In every part of the country they are going through timed exercises for
the purpose of getting tough. They may not be enjoying it particularly but
they're getting it. Modern dance should at least be understood by men after
the war. They will have had the groundwork in modern dance technique,
so that the rhythmic grace of expressionistic dance routines should not
be anything new and distasteful. There may be a new regime for modern
dance after the war-if so, it would be odd to think that out of the hundreds
of straining athletes drilling endlessly and with precision for a "young
man's" war, there- could be born a masculine interest 'in one of the most
misused of the arts.

Lewis gives the credit for his suc-
cess to his father, who was an out-
standing net star at the University of
Minnesota. Lewis said, "My father
has been giving me valuable pointers
in the game ever since I was 13, and'
Sthesepointers have helped me con-
Lewis' first taste of glory came in
his sophomore year at Ann Arbor
High, when he and Fred Wellington
captured the state doubles champion-
ship. Wellington played number four
singles for the Maize and Blue last
year and in addition teamed up with
Lewis in the doubles.
It was in his junior and senior
years at Ann Arbor High that Lewis
made an outstanding reputation for
himself. He captured the state sin-
gles championship both years and
was acknowledged as one of the top-
ranking netters in the Midwest.
Wins 36 Straight
During his three years of competi-
tion for Ann Arbor High, Lewis never
once suffered a defeat. He amassed
an impressive total of 36 consecutive
wins in addition to his victories in
the state championships.
Lewis was very popular with his
teammates as evidenced by the fact
that he was captain of the team in
his third and fourth years. He is a
very likeable boy and has a perfect
temperament for tennis.,
Lewis looks back with great pride
at the time he defeated Tom Falken-
burg, California's sensational netter,
in the St. Joseph Valley Tournament.
"I was really lucky," commented
Lewis, "to win that one."
Lewis experienced another great
victory when he teamed with Benny
Migdow to capture the River Forest
Invitational .Doubles championship
at Chicago. He went to the semi-
finals in the singles, only to lose a
torrid three-set battle to Art Leigh-
ton, who was then one of the main-
stays on the great Senn High School

team, which won the National prep
Lewis, however, was not content to
just stay with tennis so he tried out
for the basketball team in his sopho-
more year and performed as a regular
for three seasons. To further prove
his versatility Lewis captured the
Ann Arbor Junior championship in
Does Well in Big Ten
After the conclusion of his spec-
tacular high school career, Lewis en-
tered the University of Michigan last
February. He promptly worked him-
self up to a starting berth on the
varsity tennis team- and was fairly
impressive throughout the season.
Lewis went all the way to the semi-
final round in the number tiva singles
division of the Big Teri tennis cham-
pionships. He also won a majority of
his dual meets against conference
foes last year.
With the experience gained from
last year's competition, Lewis should
develop into a real threat for the
Conference championship. He has
excellent ground strokes, and has

the nation's headlines last fall with
a gridiron record that included a 7-7
tie with mighty Texas in the Cotton

against next season.
Travel restrictions which would

()P)-Paul Trout yielded his first run
in 11 innings this spring and Rudy
York belted a home run as the Tigers
defeated the Rochester Red Wings of
the International League 13 to 1 be-
fore 200 chilled spectators today.
Trout, returning to the park where
he got his start in organized baseball
ten years ago, pitched the first five;
innings and gave up one run on five
hits. Rookie Ruffus Gentry made his
first 1944 appearance in the last four
innings and held Rochester hitless.
The Tigers gathered 11 hits off
three pitchers and took advantage of
12 bases on balls. In the sixth inning
York hammered a 315 foot drive into

yesterday and carried a beautifulj

The Tigers got enough runs to win
in the first inning off George Sumey.
Don Heffner opened with a single

Cramer sacrificed and York walked,
filling the bases. Heffner scored on
a force play at second on Jimmy

Detroit didn't score again until the
fifth, when the Tigers fell on Emmer-

The Michigan Athletic Depart- ,
ment announced yesterday that theI
Cleveland Chamber of Commerce had
submitted a bid to both Michigan
and Purdue to have next fall's Michi-
gan-Purdue football game, scheduled'
for Oct. 28 at Ann Arbor, transferred;
to Cleveland's Municipal Stadium.
Athletic Director Herbert O. (Fritz)}
Crisler declined to comment on the
surprise gesture but said that the
proposition would be presented to the
Michigan Athletic Board for proper
consideration. No word has been re-,
ceived from Lafayette, Ind. on theI
Purdue reaction to the bid.,
Alumni Favor Bid
The invitation came from B. T.
Franklin, who has charge of arran-
ging such matters for the Cleveland
Chamber of Commerce. The Michi-
gan Alumni group in Cleveland is also
reported to be backing the campaign'
to have the game transferred.
Cleveland has consistently made a
practice in the last few years of
bringing important sports events to!
its huge Municipal Stadium, which l
has a seating capacity of around
80,000. Next fall's grid contest be- I
tween Illinois andsOhio State will be
played there in addition to several
other top attractions. Notre Dame,
Army and several other football pow-
ers have appeared in the stadium in{
the past.
Would Draw Large Crowd
The chief argument in favor of the
switch is that the contest between
the two Western Confe ence co-

love Made To Transfer
Pu rdu e, Mchga .Tl
Cleveland Chanaber of Counerce Wants
Football Game Played in Municipal Stadium

champs of last year would draw a lar-
ger crowd than if played in Ann
Arbor. Transportation problems and
gas rationing, together with the lack
of past gridiron rivalry with Purdue
jould cut into the Ann Arbor crowd.
Such events, on the other hand, have
always drawn well in Cleveland.
Nevertheless, it is expected that
there will be much local opposition to
the shift since Michigan fans could
not get to Cleveland for the game.
In addition, the Purdue fracas is the
highlight of the Wolverine 1944 home
schedule and the change would not
be welcome from that standpoint.
It was pointed out that one factor
which may figure strongly in the
consideration. of the proposal is that
the date for the game occurstbetween
Semesters and a' large part of the
Michigan student body would not be
on hand.

Look at the chart above. The upper line
represents living costs as far back as
1914-including rent, food, clothing,
household furnishings, etc. Notice the
mountain peak .during the first World
War, and the rising slope during the
present war.These upward curves mean
money out of your pocket. You pay
more and more for the things you buy.
Ndw look at the bottom line of the
chart-the one headed steadily down-
ward. That is the average price of
your residential electricity since 1914.
Thanks to rate reductions and increased
use, your average price of electricity is
LESS today than before the war. It is
lower in price than even during the
depression in 1932. And it is only half
the price you paid during the last war.
Electricity is cheap.
