The pair of losses suffered by
Michigan's cagers over the week-
end seem to be part of a pattern
that is true throughout the Big

this pattern very closely. They

what was probably its worst game
of the season in losing to North-
western. While therewas consid-
erable improvement in the Iowa
clash, the team still did not show
the kind of ball it has shown it-
self capable of playing.
* * *
MICHIGAN performed in a sim-
ilar manner during its pre-Con-
ference game. The Wolverines
were undefeated when they ran
into a fair Butler outfit at In-
A lackadaisical effort resulted
in loss number one, and two
days later at Cincinnati Mich-
igan was soundly beaten by the
Bearcats. Even in the season's
opener at Pittsburgh it was not
impressive despite defeating the
Pitt Panthers.
On the other hand the Maize
and Blue has yet to come up with
what would be considered a "bad"
game when playing at home. As
a matter of fact, the Wolverine
dribblers looked first rate in the
Ohio State, Valparaiso, and Loy-
ola encounters.
* * *
ONE POSSIBLE explanation for
Michigan's poor road showings
might be that it is primarily a
young team with three sophomores
in the starting lineup. While it
may be true in the case of Harvey
Williams that he performs much
better in Ann Arbor, it certainly
does not seem to hold with Jim
Barron and Tom Jorgensen.
Barron especially more than
holds his own in away games. In
the Wildcat and Hawkeye tussles,
the 6-0 guard dropped in 45 points
to bring his team-leading total to
189 in 11 games.
Whatever the reason is, if the
Wolverines continue to follow this
pattern, quite a contest is in store
for Ann Arbor cage enthusiasts

gan State moves -into the Field

"Offside" Is the term used to
signify a playing infraction by
the team in possession of the
puck. After an offside play, the

Attacking Zone (blue line) and
is called when a player passes,
carries or shoots the puck into
his Attacking Zone from the
Neutral Zone or his Defensive
Zone when a teammate is in his
Attacking Zone.
More simply, an offside is called
and a face-off ensues whenever a
player shoots the puck into the
Attacking Zone and a teammate is
already there. The puck must be
the first thing to cross the line.

THE MAJOR exception to this

known as a"slow whistle." How-

ever if an attacking player takes
the puck from the defending play-
er while he is still in the Attack-
ing Zone, the whistle is blown and
an offside is called,
Another rule which puzzles
many fans is the one known as
"icing the puck." This infrac-
tion, also a very common one,
is called when under most cir-
cumstances a player shoots the
puck from his own Defensive
Zone through the Neutral Zone
and beyond the opponent's goal
line, an extension of the line
over which the puck must cross
to score a goal.
In this case the face-off is call-
ed back in the Defending Zone
of the team which made the in-
fraction after the puck is touch-
ed by a player on the other team.
There are four main exceptions to
this rule.
* * *
THE FACE-OFF is called unless:
(1) The team shooting has fewer
men on the ice due to a man in
the penalty box. (2) The shot is
made from a face-off. (3) The
puck touches an opposing player
or his equipment before reaching
the goal line extended. (4) If in
the opinion of the referee a player
of the opposing team other than
the goalkeeper is able to play the
puck but lets it go.
This foul is often times inten-
tionally committed by a team
which is having difficulty clear-
ing the puck from its own end
and temporarily wishes to re-
lieve the pressure. The face-off
also gives the team a chance to
put fresh players on the ice
without having to change on
the fly.

'Al' Could Claim All-Time Swim Honors

Regular $49.50
Priced for January Clearance
$ 2788$

In spite of the loud objections
which might emminate from the
pools at Yale and Ohio State,
Michigan could well claim the title
of all-time college swimming
While much could probably be
said in defense of the Buckeyes
and the men of Eli, the facts would
back the Wolverines' claim to the
YALE, OFTEN regarded as the
kingpin of the, swimming world,
is actually only a poor third to
the men from Ann Arbor and
Coach Matt Mann's charges
lead the nation in team titles,
having been national champions
during 13 of the 30 years since
the initiation of the NCAA title
meet. Since 1937, when team
championships became an offi-
cial part of the annual swimming
contest, the Wolverines have
won the title six times, once less
than the Buckeyes. Yale can
boast only three national crowns
over the same span.
Wolverine superiority is evident
when individual champions are
considered. During his twenty-
eight years as the head of Michi-
gan swimming, Mann-coached
men have captured 79 national

titles. This is nearly three times
the number won by Yale and fif-
teen more than have been gar-
nered by Ohio State natators.
* * * .
ONLY IN THE realm of colle-
giate record-holders is Michigan
forced to take a back seat. Al-
though the Wolverines and the
Buckeyes have each produced four
of the thirteen present day rec-
ord setters, through the years Yale
men have held national marks 34
times. This is in contrast to the
18 which have rested at Michi-
gan and only 8 held by Ohio State.
Some of the greatest names in
swimming history have raced as
members of the Wolverine team.
Among the first national swim-
ming champions produced by
Mann were such greats as free-
styler Paul Samson, former
world record-holder in both
sprints, and John Schmeiler,
national champion in both the
freestyle and breaststroke.
Following them on the Michigan
swimming scene came Ed Eirar,

the only swimmer to hold both
freestyle sprint titles for two con-
secutive years; Taylor Drystdale,
three-time backstroke champion;
Jack Kasley, the only breaststrok-
er to win three consecutive titles;
and Dick Degener, diving king for
two years.
* * *
THE PRESENT Wolverine squad
doesn't lack champions. "Bumpy"
Jones, individual medley titlist for
the past two years, has 'Iwo more
years to swim as a Weive-:ine star.
Jones holds two American
medley records and was a mem-
ber of the national champion
freestyle relay team during thea
past two seasons.
Don Hill, a senior and co-cap-
tain of this year's power-packed
squad, is the NCAA '50-yard free-
style king.
The holder of the collegiate long
course 50-yard freestyle record,
Hill also was for two years a team-
mate of Jones on the national
champion freestyle relay combi-
