The manufacturers now say that,
barring *\ recession in business
generally, there is no reason why it
should not keep up.
Orders for new boats are far
ahead of deliveries, dealers report.
Some prospective yachtsmen ac
cordingly may not get afloat for
months. Oldtlmers who may be
tempted to sell their craft In the
present high market are reluctant
to do so because of the steep re
placement cost, one water-front

Terps' Nine Scores for Shipley
As He Quits Basket Coaching
Maryland's baseball team helped]
Burt Shipley celebrate his résigna-'
tion as basket ball coach by coming;
from behind to nip Dartmouth, 7-4,1
on a heavy field yesterday at College
Park. Shipley's action in surrender
ing the basket ball reins, a decision
he made over a year ago, was reluc
tantly accepted by Director of Ath
letics Jim Tatum.
Tatum, in New York on a com
bination good-will and business trip,
was aware of Shipley's intention and
already has a successor picked out.
Maryland officials said his identity
might be revealed by Sunday.
Shipley has no regrets in giving
up basket ball and most assuredly
didn't seem gloomy as Outfielder
Stuffy Evans paced his mates to vic
tory over the Indians with a 3-run
rally in the seventh. Evans clouted
a single and double and climaxed
the seventh inning uprising by steal
ing home. Baseball has been
Shipley's game first and last and the
helter-skelter modern brand of bas
ket ball was not to his liking.

Terps' Lacrosse Class
Not Established by
Rout of Harvard
Although Harvard displayed a
more ruggey defense than any
previous lacrosse team from "the
Squayah," Maryland's Coach Jack
Taber isnt ready to award his boys
the national title on the .strength
of their 15-2 victory over the Crim
son yesterday at College Park.
"I'll know more about it after the
Duke match at Durham tomorrow,"
he said today, just before the team's
caravan set out for the scene of bat
tle. "We made enough mistakes
yesterday to lose 10 matches simply
because of inexperience, but there
were some bright spots in our work.
But Duke will be more of a test and
IU settle for a one-goal victory."
- Jiles Freeman, speedy six-footer,
paced the Terp attack against Har
vard with four points. He twisted
and dodged through the Crimson's
burly defense for three unassisted
goals and played a bang-up defen
sive game himself. Tom Hoffecker
stood out àt goal and Rookie Char
ley Herbert showed enough to mark
him as a potential star.
Harvard's attack was inept. At
one time the New Englanders had
the ball in Maryland territory with
three Terps sidelined by penalties
and still couldn't score.
Harvard is due for another wal
loping today at Navy, which tuned
