GArgime9n Against 'ou*IRules
By WHITNEY MARTIN
Associated Press Columnist
A FRIEND OF OURS is very sore. He paid his money to see
Bob Kurland of the Oklahoma Aggies and George Mikan
of DePaul meet on a basketball court the other night, and al-
though they did meet he feels somehow that he was gyped,
as the meeting was so comparatively brief it was quite incon-
clusive, and just left a bad taste in the mouth.
He doesn't begrudge the money, as it was a Red Cross game
at Madison Square Garden and the money could not go to a
worthier cause. But he does feel that he was lured to the game
by misrepresentation, and he blames the basketball rules.
"I went primarily to see those two big guys play against
each other," he says, "The game was incidental to mc. A c
what happens? Mikan goes out on fouls inside of 14 minutes.
I 'still don't know how they would have stacked up against each
other over the distance, or which was the better team when each
was at full strength.
"Why can't they figure somn v o a player can re-
main in a game? I don't know of any other sport where a
player is banishcd for kecps after a certain number of rule
infractions, unless he's slugging or soething. In hockey
they put a guy in a penalty box far a few minutes, but he
can return to action.
"In football a player can hold or be offside any number of
times. The team is penalized, the same as a basketball team is
when a player fouls, but the guy is not removed from the game,
unless the coach gets tired of those backward gains.
The penalty should be severe enough without ousting the
player and cheating the fans of what they paid to see. They
might figure out a plan to have a penalty box like hockey, or
allow extra free throw-s for every foul above a set number.
As it is, I paid to see Mikan, and when he went out and a
sub went in it was the same as Joe Louis fouling out of a box-
ing match about the third round and some palooka going in to
sub for him."
Our friend has something there. We have never seen the
enthusiasm and anticipation go out of a crowd quite so abruptly
as it went out of the 18,000 or so in the garden. It was just like
sticking a pin in a toy balloon when Mikan left the game.
Mikan, because of his sensational scoring in ealier
games here, had become a pet of the New York fans. They
virtually adopted him, cheering his every move. He went
out because he broke the rules. Kurland survived, yet there
was some booing aimed at him when he was removed for a
sub. Why? Who knows? Just because he was still in
there and Mikan wasn't, maybe. A nice kid playing a goAd,
clean game, too.
From what we did see of the two players together we got
the impression that two good big men tend to nullify each
other, more or less. The seven-foot Kurland, who looks like
a bird house on a pole when he yawns, certainly had noc the
worst of it during the 14 minutes or so he opposed the six-foot-
nine Mikan. We'd say it was a virtual standoff.
IARK THAT BALLOT!

her short-lived lead, as Heini Kessler captured the number two berth, behind

Murray was behind most of the way, but in the last fifty yards, he
poured on the juice and Kessler was unable to stand up to the gruelling pace.

_ . .
APRIL 1, 1945 is Easter
_ here in Ann Arbor and ev-
erywhere where there is
freedom of religion. Ann
Arbor is observing the holi-
day quietly and with rev-
erence. The local chur-
ches offered services Good
Friday and early Easter
morning. Coeds and Ann
Arbor residents turned out
in their Easter best, not
necessarily new clothes but
nevertheless their finery.
April 1 is also April Fool's
Day but this year the day
will probably go by with a
minimum of practical jokes
and tricks played because
of the significance of East-
goal of the originators was
$100,000 in war bonds
which would be comparable
to the price of a bomber.
This fund is established to
be an outright grant of
money to any University
veteran of the basis of his
military record and char-
acter as well as his need.
Various, projects such as
the Michibomber Carnival,
Victory Varieties, and
numerous Bomber Schol-
arship sponsored dances,
and contributions from
sororities and other cam-
pus organizations have
netted approximately $29,-
000 for the fund.
