INTRAMURAL DIRECTOR, Earl Riskey, recently came up with
a new interest-arousing idea, and, from all indications, it looks as
though it may be on its way to becoming another successful IM acti-
Thursday, Feb. 28th, has been set aside as Faculty-Student night."
Competition in eight athletic events between faculty and student
teams will highlight the evening's activities. Approximately 200 per-
sons will represent each squad,
The eight activities include volleyball, basketball, squash, hand-
ball, bowling, billiards, paddleball, and ever dangerous water polo. All
contests wil be open to the general public, and a list of all starting
times will appear in The Daily early next week.
Twelve volleyball matches are on schedule. Many students will
be playing against their instructors when Romance Language
meets the Turks, the Physical Education teachers engage the
phys. ed. students, and Zoology plays Nu Sigma Nu, the medical
Other contests pit Education against Adams House, Chemistry will
battle the Hawaiian3s, Psychology requested the Law Club, and the two
Willow Run teams, the Rockets and Simulators, take on Pi Lambda
'Phi and the Foresters, respectively.
Political Science encounters Phi Delta Theta, Engineering Me-
chanics face the Chinese, Public Health meets Wenley House, and
Museum plays against Zeta Beta Tau.

Basketball Teams Ready
BASKETBALL SHOULD BE one of the evening's most entertain-
ing sports. A fine selection of faculty and student cage talent promises
4 to result in a well played contest.
Captain of the student five is Bill Putich. Other members of the
squad include John Fortenberry, Howie Maturen, Frank Putich, Bob
Fleming, Joe Cassis, Russ Smith, and Don Peterson.
Assistant basketball coach Dave Strack will captain the facul-
ty team. Bill Orwig, varsity end coach, and J. T. White, J-V bas-
ketball mentor will give the instructors ample height. Nels Lehsten,
University High Athletic Director, will also play.
The squad is rounded out by Rod Granbeau, assistant IM director,
Don Robinson, J-V football coach, Elmer Swanson, assistant track
mentor, and Rich Donnelly of the phys. ed. department.
Squash, handball, paddleball, billiards, and bowling all have their
captains chosen, and are now going through a stage of organization.
Bowling will consist of four teams, each of which will have five
members. The faculty captains are E. D. Mitchell and golf coach Bert
Katzenmeyer. Jay O'Keefe and Dick Smith are the two student cap-
tains. Word has it that O'Keefe has maintained a 190 average while
bowling in his league at the Union.
Either Williams or Hayden House will meet Wenley in the
residence hall finals of water polo. The champion will face a fa-
culty team organized by captain Chuck Fries. This is one sport that
you really have to know what you're doing, because, as those of
you, who have played it know, ANYTHING GOES.
If all goes well next Thursday night, Mr. Riskey plans to have a
similar activity in the spring. At that time softball, golf, horseshoes,
and tennis would be featured.
Frank Putich and Bob Fleming recently teamed up to win the
all-campus doubles championship. They defeated Len Pearlman and..
Bill Reiger two straight games: 21-15 and 21-11.
Four Schools Compete in Handball
THIS SATURDAY four handball teams from the state of Michi-
A gan will compete on the IM courts. Two singles and one doubles team
will represent Michigan State, the University of Michigan, Detroit, and
Wayne University. Semi-final matches are scheduled for the morning,
while finals will be played that afternoon.
Bill Riekel and Bob Spatz will play 1-2 singles for Michigan, while
Nonn Weinstock and Frank Wollowitz will team up for doubles
Last night at 7:30 residence halls, independents, and social fra-
ternities were timed in the quarter mile relay at Yost Field House.
The teams with the four best times in the fraternities and the
four best in the residence halls will take part in the IM division of
the Michigan-Ohio State track meet to be held March 1. Last year
the winners in the respective divisions were Kappa Sigma, Williams
House, and the Newman Club.
That's about all the news from IM headquarters for the week. Be-
fore closing, one final reminder: Faculty-Student night should turn
out to be an enjoyable evening for all concerned. So why not come out
. and see some of your profs and instructors compete with your fellow-
We all may be a little surprised to discover that some of the aging
teachers might be able to handle students, both in and out of the
classrooms ... .

At every Michigan wrestling
meet this year, hoots and howls for
Moose Dunne have become the
favorite cheer of Wolverine fans.
Dunne, one of the most popular
grapplers to hit the Michigan
scene in many a year, takes it. all,
in his stride and still goes onto
the mats determined not neces-
sarily to give a good show, but to

Bob Betzig, and has emerged to
the point where he is probably as
good as any heavyweight wrestler
in the Big Ten.
But everything wasn't always
this well with the 215 pounder
from Winnetka, Illinois.
Dunne comes from a long line
of Michigan graduates; and all
of them played varsity football.
So it is, that when Art came to
the University he would have
liked nothing better than to
play the fall sport.
But tradition was to be broken.
Moose did not have the natural
co-ordination, it appeared, to be
a sucess on the Michigan football
team. And so he decided to go out
for wrestling.
* * *

because down deep they could
see the potential of a successful
heavyweight wrestler.
Not until this year has the po-
tential been reached.
Dunne started off his varsity
career by grappling in two varsity
matches in his sophomore year.
He lost them both, one of them by
a pin to Bill Miller, Ohio 'State's
former national champion heavy-;
weight wrestler.
* * *
THAT WAS the 1949-50 season,
end for his efforts Dunne was
awarded a reserve letter.
Last season Keen expected
great things from the Wolverine
mammoth. But even though
great improvement was noted,
he still did not reach his apex.
He ended up the year with a
record of three wins, four losses,
aql three ties.
This year Dunne has developed
to such a point that he has won
more matches thisyear, four, than
he won in the previous two years
But if you ask Cliff Keen, he's
sure that the best is yet to come.
"The Big Ten meet," he says,
"will show 'em just how good
Moose really is."

Sports Tryouts
An opportunity to work on
the Sports Staff of the Michi-
gan Daily, one of the most com-
petent collegiate newspapers in
the country, was offered yester-
day to all University students.
Ted Papes, Sports Editor, an-
nounced that all tryouts would
be welcomed at the Sports Desk
of the Student Publications
Building at five p.m. on Mon-
day, February 2'. 1952.
"The Sports staff," he added,
"offers the student fellowship,
knowledge, and enjoyment, plus
the satisfaction gained by par-
ticipation in extra-curricular

permission to report early. The
remainder of the outfielders and

was much behind the rest of the
squad when he reported. He was
brand new to the game, and the
nickname of 'Moose' seemed very
appropriate indeed.
Keen and Betzig worked very
hard with the young :sophomore

"The Redmen play rough,
hard-hitting hockey, which is
colorful from the fan's view-
point. They play their best
games on the road. The team
improves with every game, and
should provide the Wolverines
with a good battle."
This is primarily a building
year for the Redmen, under their
new coach, Rocky Robillard. De-
fensively, the squad is sound,
boasting two veteran goalies, Bob
MacLellan and John Wright.
At forward, Albert Schultz,
leading McGill scorer, teams
with William Duke and Pete
McElheron for the first line.
The latter is probably the most
improved player on the squad-
a swift skater with a lot of
" drive.
Another forward who will see
action is Dick Irvin, Jr., son of
Dick Irvin, coach of the NUIL.

THE MICHIGAN squad is gen-
erally in good shape, except for
Doug Philpott, who will miss the
series. Philpott, second line cen-
ter, is in Health Service with a
bad cold.
Wolverine Mentor Vie Hey-
liger says Telly Mascarin, Wind-
sor freshman, will dress in
place of Philpott. Paul Pelow
is slated to take over at center
between John McKennell and
Eddie May to complete the sec-
ond line.
Heyliger will probably start
Earl Keyes, George Chin, and Pat
Cooney as forwards, with Reg
Shave and Jim Haas on defense
in front of goalie Willard Ikola.
