HAIL TO THE SAILORS V A LI ANT!

(Continued from Page 8)

By LARRY SPERLING
'An old sailor never dies.'
That's the motto of the Michi-I
gan Sailing Club. Bu; in view of
their recent exploits a better one;
would be, 'Through rain, snow or
fog our sailors carry on'.
TAKE THE recent Northwes-
tern Invitational Regatta at Chi-
cago. The first day of racing had
sub zero weather and strong winds
on tap for the sailors, but the
races went on.
Of course, those who sailed
that day had to literally thaw
the ice off their bodies after
each race.
Saturday, despite more adverse'
conditions the meet was con-
tinued. But it didn't last long.
* * *
IN THE first race of the day
one of the boats capsized and af-
ter fishing two blue facsimilies of
the boat's skipper and crew from
the water it was decided to call
off the rest of the meet.
That was only the beginning of
the fun, however. In the evening
there was a party thrown by the
Chicago Yacht Club, sponsorsof
the regatta.
Unfortunately the scene of
the party was the boathouse
which is attached to the shore{
only by a set of chains. The9
chains were waging what1
proved to be a losing battle with ;
the wind and waves of Lake
Michigan.
Before the party was in full
swing the chains lost out and

vision broadcasting, while females
will hail the arrival of "beef-cake,"
the masculine gender of cheese-
cake.
"Cuddling" is no longer done
inby boys and girls, the pamphlet
said; it's now the close packing
.of radio frequencies by the Fed-
eral Communications Commis-
< sion.
The ldgical successor to "Bene-
lux," a nick-name for the low-
lands, is "Finebel," which some-
how adds up to France, Italy, the
NetherlandA, Belgium and Luxem-
bourg.
* * *
THE'"KIGMY," a little creature
which delights in being kicked
around, is a brain-child of car-
toonist Al' Capp. "Kigmy" seems
destined to Join Capp's now im-
mortal "schmoo" as part of our
speech.
Anew trend in amateur drama
.~p~~'V which popped up this summer
' has put "theatre-in-the-round"
on American lips. In this "arena
* theatre" the actors are sur-
rounded by the audience, who
some of their' gear before a float- the___audience,__ _who

presumably have a tactical ad-
vantage in case of a fight.
"Butterleggers," a name pro-
bably invented by the dairy inter-
ests, are folks who sell oleomar-
gerine as butter.
Sometimes the supplement of
temporary terms seems unduly
pessimistic about words' durability,
For example, Funk & Wagna.l
didn't expect "deep freeze" .ana
"roller derby" to be around when
they put out their next dictionary

SAILING, SAILING--Members of the Michigan Sailing Club rescues

ing boat house atrChicago drifts off into Lake Michigan in the midst of a gale. The watchman and
boat house were recovered later by the Coast Guard.

* * *
everybody found themselves rush-
ing for the gangplank. The gang-
plank however had capitulated
also.
A temporary one was put up
and everyone got to shore ex-
cept the watchman who stayed
on board and attempted to res-

cue the clothing and valuables
left in the boathouse.,
He succeeded in getting one1
load to the shore when the last
chain gave way and boathouse,
valuables, and watchman went
floating out into the lake.
THAT'S JUST one of the num-
erous zany things that happen to
the sailors every season.
In the Michigan State Regatta
they were forced to sail in a
fog that was so.densethat the
skippers couldn't even see the
bows of their own ships.

* * *

A crash ship had to sail ahead
of the pack and blow its fog horn
to show them the direction of the
finish line.
Custom decrees that the win-
ning team be thrown in the
water at the end of each meet.
At the conclusion of this par-
ticular meet things got a little
out of hand and everybody in
sight was dunked.
The sailors also do quite a bit
of traveling. Each year they have
a schedule which takes them from
California to New England
