Grid Captain
Accepts Bid
To Honolulu
Tom Maentz, captain of this
years Michigan football team,
has accepted an invitation to play
in the annual Hula Bowl Game
in Honolulu, Jan. 13, 1957.
Maentz, who is playing in the
Shrine East-West game in San
Francisco on Dec. 29, will join
such other stars as Jim Parker,
Joe Walton, Jim Swink, and John
Arnett in the Honolulu game.
The Hula Bowl game is a little
different than the ordinary post-
season meeting of graduating
football players,
In this game a team of main-
land professional and college stars
meet a team made up of players
of the University of Hawaii and
various service teams from the
Doak Walker while he was a
star for the Detroit Lions appeared
in the game three times.
Since the game was instituted
shortly after the war, the Hawaii
All Stars, as the island team is
called, have made a practice of
winning, mainly because they us-
ually have a couple of games un-
der their belt as a unit.
In the past the coach of the
state-side team has been a coach
from the National Football
League, while the coach of the
island team has come from one
of the island service teams.
Any college star from the states
who plays in the game automati-
cally becomes a professional, due
to the fact that they receive $100
and travel expenses to and from

'M' Wrestler.
Eligible Say
CHICAGO f) - Big Ten ath-
tet letic directors took action yes-
terday on eligibility cases and
moved in favor of the involved
Wrestler Mike Rodriguez of
Michigan, the 157-pound Big Ten
champion ,had his eligibility ex-
tended to June, 1957. Rodriguez'
competition would normally have
ended next month, but he was in-
jured in his first college meet
against Pittsburgh on Feb. 8, 1954,
and was unable to participate the
rest of that semester.
Swimmer John Kerr of Indiana
was made eligible for the rest of
the present semester. Kerr had a
grade delinquency which he
could not make up during the
summer because of class hour lim-
itations. He would have been eli-
gible next semester anyway.
The directors devoted much of
their session to framing the 1959-
60 football schedules. However,
they reached no final decision and
will continue their work.
They did approve a proposal by
the football coaches that visiting
teams automatically must wear
white jerseys and the home team
scored a contrasting color.,
In other action they approved
on de- participation in a triangular all-
star track meet with the Pacific
nany to Coast Conference and the South-
hlete in west Conference in the event such
a meet is held.

There are some who dispute
the fact that President Chester
A. Arthur was the first man to
wear the Oxford Button-Down
shirt. They are right, he wasn't.
Van Heusen has discovered
that its originator was actually
Arthur A. Chester, who, oddly
enough, used the button not to
keep his collar down, but to
keep his shirt up. Whatever its
purpose, the Oxford Button-
Down (or Button-Up) shirt
wowed Mr. Chester's crowd
on sight and has been a staple
of fine wardrobes ever since.
Today, Van Heusen's Oxford
Button-Down is still in the
authentic Chesterian tradition

With only two more weeks re-
maining in the National Football
League season each division boasts
a two team race for its title.
In the Western Division the De-
troit Lions are leading the second
place Chicago Bears by only one-
half game, while the New York
Giants lead the Chicago Cardinals
by one andone-half games in the
Eastern Division.
Tomorrow's game between the
two "windy city" elevens will prob-
ably eliminate one of them. The
Bears need a win to stay on the
heels of the Lions who are playing
the Pittsburgh Steelers, while the
Cards will definitely be eliminated
with a loss.
Both Lost
In last week's action both Chi-
cago teams were favored to win,
but lost. The Bears were trounced
by the Lions and the Cards were
edged by the Greer Bay Packers.
Both teams know that to gain the
title it is necessary to win this tilt
4 and both should be up for the
cross-city tussle.
The Detroit Lions will host the
Steelers who beat the Los Angeles
Rams handily last week. If the
Lions let up like they did on
Thanksgiving when they lost to
the Packers, they might once again
find themselves on the short end
of the score.
