Swim Gala,
AAU Meet Are
Joint Attraction
Coach Matt Mann and the Varsity
swimming team will again produce a
Swim Gala, but this year it will be
in conjunction with the Michigan
AAU championships, an annual af-
fair held separately.
The joint attraction has been
scheduled for Friday night, Jan. 8,
and will be held as usual in the Var-
sity pool in the Sports Building. Thei
feature event will be a ten-man relay
race (each man to swim 25 yards)
between the Army and Navy. This
special race will not carry an AAU
championship with it, but don't let
anyone tell you that it won't be hotly
contested. Already the personnel oft
both teams are rounding into shape.
At the present time Matt is in Co-
lumbus attending a meeting of Na-
tional AAU officials. It is expected
that the time and place of this year's
National AAU swimming champion-
ships will be decided at this gather-
As yet. no dual meets have been
scheduled. Athletic Director Fritz
Crisler is in Chicago to help make
out the Big Ten swimming calendar,

ference schedule is arranged Coach

When the Michigan ice squad faces
the London A. C. in the first hockey
game Dec. 11. fans will have an op-
portunity to see a performance utter-
ly unprecedented in between-halves
Since the Michigan coeds have tak-
en over so many of the positions for-
merly held by men, they have de-
cided that they should try their
skill at the ice game. In past years
between halves their have been ex-
hibitions of fancy skating of various
sorts, and sometimes music played.
At other times the only entertain-
ment has been in the form of little
boys shoveling and sweeping off the
ice and then free-skating in the few
minutes left.
However. the coeds have decided to
make this game different. Not only
will the hockey team play during the
game, but there will be a hockey,
game between halves to make it a
continuous round of the puck game.
The girls have decided that thej
game will be an indication of what1

quota is filled-a game showing the
horrible effects of taking away all the
The game will not be played in the
usual fashion with a hockey stick and
puck, but the girls will be armed with
brooms and a basketball. Moreover,
the rules of the game will be slightly
changed, and since the women have
not as yet developed the stamina of
the average hockey player, the game
will only last five minutes.
The team is officially called the
JGP "Bond Bombers," and at the
present time there is only one team
selected. However, volunteers for a
second team to create opposition, are
turning up and will be on hand to
provide the competition on the elev-
It must be added that unlike the
usual game of hockey this fray will
not be a blood-and-thunder battle
but will be for entertainment only.

Heard This One?
WE RETELL here a story that
should remind you of that fam-
ous Chinese proverb, "He who refuses
to eat chop suey because he has no
time to see what is in it, must eat
rice." (It you hear a rumbling noise
when you read this proverb, it, is
probably Confucius turning over in
his grave ins agony.)
Last summer Navy officials quer-
ied Northwestern on the possibility
of sending one extra boy to its V-12
program. The authorities at Ev-
anston promptly wired back, "No
room. Sorry." Not to be quieted so
easily the stubborn Navy officers
immediately asked Notre Dame if
it could take an extra student in its
Naval program. "Sorry, but we are
all filled up."
So. as a last resort, the Navy turned
to Michigan and sent a plea to Wol-
verine authorities, "Can you possibly
find room for one more boy in your
V-12 program?" Michigan, just like
Jimmie Durante, who is "never too
busy to say hello," was not too full to
say yes, and so the return wire stat-
ed, "Guess we can squeeze in one
None of the other schools both-
ered to ask the name of this boy.
It turned out to be BILL DALEY,
All-American fullback at Minne-

sota in 1941, and ditto at Michigan
in 1943.
WHAT do you think of our Chinese
proverb now? Evef ConfuciAs
would have to admit it was better
than something like "Everything
comes to him who waits"- or "Take
time to sow a good field and you will
reap a handsome harvest." We be-
lieve that if you can't think of an
appropriate aphorism or proverb, it
is better to make one up than to
accept an inferior product.. .
it is strange for men like Daley,
Elroy Hirsch and other collegiate
transfers at Michigan to win letters
at two schools. How about the case
of Vic Schwall, freshman backfield
star at Northwestern this fall.
Vic had the unusual distinction of
winning varsity letters from two
schools in the same season! He qual-
ified for his "N" at Northwestern
before being transferred as a Naval
aviation cadet to DePauw, where he
played football and won his "D."
Strictly a man of letters ..
REMEMBER PUG? : Football
fans probably remember Northwes,
tern's great athlete of a decade ago.

All-American honors as a halfbaek
in 1931. Today, he is Lt. Rentner
and is serving as an operations
officer with the Navy Air Force in
