Ohio's Bill Miller built up the

COLUM1US-A foul shot by
Jerry Burns with slightly more
than two minutes remaining in an
overtime period enabled Michi-
gan's jayvee basketball squad to
eke out a 44-43 victory over the
Ohio State "B" team here yester-
Behind most of the game, Mich-
igan knotted the score with two
quick buckets by Oscar Agre and
Bill Eggenberger to send the battle
into overtime. After Burn's free
shot, the team stalled for the re-
mainder of the game.
This was the jayvee's second
win over the Buckeyes this sea-
son. It marked the close of a high-
ly successful year for J. T. White's
boys in which they won six out of
the nine games they played.

There was a time when all New
Yorkers felt that anyone who
didn't live in their Big City was
strictly a country cousin-nobody
else could come within echo dis-
tance of their standards.
Somehow a few eastern colleges
caught the "holier - than - thou"
bug, and appropriated the idea
for their own exclusive use. The
boys from MIT, Yale, and Har-
vard peered down their noses at
the Mid-western family trying to
make a go of intercollegiate sail-
WHEN THE Mid-western Sail-
ing Association took hold and
like Topsy, "just growed", the
Back Bay boys staked out their
claims. They claimed Michigan,
Notre Dame, Wisconsin and the
rest as an "annex" of the Inter-
collegiate Yacht Racing Associa-
tion, the grandaddy of sailing or-
That was back in '46. Since
then, the weight of the two
conferences has shifted. Michi-

gan finished second to Yale in
an intersectional regatta at
Chicago last year.
Yet more important, the East-
ern sons of sailing agreed to leave
their home base and make Whit-
more Lake the scene of the Na-
tional Regatta this June.
HAND IN HAND with the
changing attitude of the East has
been a changing opinion about
the membership of the Michigan
Sailing Club. At first, only old
salts belonged to it.
According to Jim Rukin, con-
modore of the club, "We've tried
to wipe out.the "exclusive air."
We'd like to have anyone who
has only an INTEREST in sailing
join our group. We can supply the
rest-the equipment and the know
DURING THE three weeks prior
to boating time, the club members
will be holding school and getting
the dinghies ready. Learning nau-
tical terms will be emphasized to
prepare the newcomers for in-
structions when sailing.
The plans for on-shore training
will be explained in detail when
the Michigan Sailing Club meets
Wednesday. Rukin urges anyone
who is interested to attend the
meeting at the Union.
