The University of California is

credits for participation.
Mass Programs Adopted.
The entire sports program will be
carried through, at least to the
May 31 budget setup, and the future
depends entirely on the 1942 football
receipts. Some 3.000 students engage
hi intramural sports and approx
imately 1,600 athletes are in inter
collegiate competition during the
school year.
The University of Southern Cali
fornia’s trend is toward increased
minor sports activity and a mass

University of California at Los

lines as are Washington State Col

The woman golfers around town aren’t scared toy the big bogey

under a new setup, canceling only two of their usual affair?. Where
the Executive Committee of the men's District of Columbia Golf
Association has recommended cancellation of their championship
affair this year, the women have*-—
taken the tsuu by tne toreiock, cast
war worries aside and voted to go I
through with their usual slate, sans

their full slate the women have gone
along with the Middle Atlantic and j

War Has Little Effect on Miami Fishing
New Flgrida Guide Is Authoritative
Tall stories are being circulated
about Southern fishing. It’s an old

Fishing Guide Is Great Aid.
There have been many guides pub

spots. Some have been highly in
structive, but have failed miserably
in noting the one thing visitors need
most to know—available camps and
This season any fisherman may
slide two bits across the counter
and get a guide, not only authorita
tive, but complete in information
about every phase of fresh and salt
water fishing.

adds a nickle to the cost.
In it one will find some 40-odd
illustrations, descriptions of game

The real value of this guide will
be most apparent to those who

it was in much the same fashion
that Roman compiled the data to
be found in it.

fishermen congregate the subject

boats capable of staying at sea in

pressed into service as mine layers

Leading Bruins Would
End 80-Game Scoring
Streak of Rangers
If there is one club in the Na
tional Hockey League capable of
stopping the scoring streak of the
New York Rangers, which stands
now at a record high of 80 games,
it is the Boston Bruins—and they
have the chance tonight.
The Bruins, Stanley Cup playoff
champions of last season, are back
on top of the ladder—by a margin
of 2 points over the Rangers—pri
marily because of a defense that has
permitted opposing aggregations
only 50 goals in 25 games.
Tonight they have the added ad
vantage of playing before their
home-town fans, but against the
league’s most potent attack. The
Rangers, with 27 games played, are
the only sextet to have crossed the
100 mark in goals scored.
Signs o' the Times
At least one North Carolinian
paid off his Rose Bowl bet on Duke
in defense stamps.
