In today's world of high-caliber
collegiate sports, the man who

team is quite rare.
Even rarer is the athlete who
can win two letters. during the

Ed Cole, varsity diver on the
swimming team and trampolinist
on the gymnastics squad.
Cole started out as a diver and
swimmer in high school in Evan-
ston, Ill. It took only a short time
to reach the top, since he was
two-time I11in ois State* High
School Diving Champion.
Besides diving, Cole swam the

Both Cole and his counterpart
on the diving-board and trampo-

will attempt to divide his time
equally between them.
Strong Units
He has the honor of being a
part of the strongest single unit
on both of his varsity squads. This
yeai's group of Michigan divers
is the first Big Ten group that has
been able to offer real competition
to Ohio State's perennial champs.
On the gymnastic picture, Mich-
igan's trampoline group is the
team's best outfit. They scored
sweeps in both the Wisconsin and
Minnesota meets. Cole is the best
competitor in this strong group,
and has drawn much praise from
coach Newt Loken.
He states that his only interests
at Michigan are studies and sports.
It would be hard to find time for

much else during the winter sports
season, since he must spend twice1
as much time practicing as mostJ
Wolverine athletes.
While his brother undertakes
law studies, Cole will be in busi-

Certainly the greatest -thing
that could happen to Ed Cole this:

a member of two Big Ten Champ-

the two schools have been par-
ticularly close. Michigan has

4-3 at East Lansing and 3-2 at
Ann Arbor. The Wolverines still
hold an unbeaten record of 31
straight games against the Spar-
tans in the cqllorful series.

CHICAGO--It apparently is up
to two of the Big Ten's "have-not"
football contenders, Northwestern
and Indiana, to decide whether the
conference will adopt a proposed
new code for recruiting and finan-
cial aid to athletes.
It was learned yesterday that
Purdue officially joined Illinois,
Michigan, Michigan State and
Wisconsin in favoring the new
legislation which will be acted
upon finally here Feb. 22.
Iowa and Minnesota have re-
affirmed 'negative votes expressed
when the new code came up for
conference action for the first time
last December.
Ohio State also voted against
the new code in December and
presumably will vote the same way

the Wings, Canadiens, and Bruins.
Lately the Wings have been able
to edge ahead by playing only fair
hockey while the Bruins have
been knocking the Canadiens (4f.
Sparking the Wings again this
season are their three consistent
stars, Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay,
and Red Kelley. Howe and Lind-
say are among the top three scor-
ers, and Kelly is once again one
of the top defensemen in the
league, while also being very da-.-
gerous offensively.
The second place Canadiens

have also been playing good tut
not sensational hockey. They have
been able to come out well with
every team but the Bruins who
seem to have a jinx over them.
The Flying Frenchmen have
also been hampered by an in-

Bernie Geoffrian. Geoffrian has
been absent from the lineup for

The Bruins have their problem

they can solve it they will have
a hard time moving up.

"There were one or two prob-

Canadian Pro Football Council,.
No Raiding
Cooper, who finally has earned
the power to act for as well as
represent the nine Canadian
teams, said that to his knowledge
there wasn't one case of player
raiding last year.
We honored each other's con-
tracts and options, he said. Bell
To all intents and purposes,
Cooper said, the so-called war be-
tween the leagues is dead.
He'said the Canadian teams ex-
perienced their finest season at
the gate with "seven of our nine
teams well in the black."
Getting Their Share
Cooper said that the Canadian
teams were getting their fair per-
centage of American talent al-

high because of bidding against

Victim Jones. Jones couldn't
identify the yegg. "The wan-
ton jackdaw who cabbaged my
cash wore a mask," said Jones.
"The only distinguishing fea-
ture about him was his shirt.
A beauty! The collar was ab-
solutely free of wrinkles. Oh,
he was a neat one!"
Meanwhile, the scoundrel,
knowing that his wrinkle-free
and enviably-neat collar was a
dead giveaway, tried desper-

ately to slip some wrinkles into
it. He stamped on it with hob-
nail boots. He slugged away
at it with a club. But not a
wrinkle! So later, as he skulked
down Main Street, his shirt
was noticed, admiringly, by a
detective and he was arrested
lickety-split. Good work,
By now you will have
guessed that the miscreant
wore a Van Heusen Century
Shirt. But of course! It's the
only shirt in the world with the
soft collar that won't wrinkle
ever. It never needs starch,
so it's always comfortable. The
Van Heusen Century also lasts
up to twice as long as ordinary
shirts, yet costs no more. $4.00.
