On Ocean Voyage
Until not so many months ago,
Bob Ivers was an undergraduate at
the University of California, at Los
Angeles. Then the economies forced
on him by his GI veteran's stipend
began to make Bob a bit restless, a
bit harassed. Before he knew it
Ivers had become a radio operator on
a merchant ship bound from Texas
Added to the radio-op salary that
he's saving for his return to scholas
tic life is the commission that he's
receiving from Varsity, the young
man's magazine because Ivers is
now the publication's foot-loose cor
His first report is a college man's
humorous look at the merchant ma
rine. "It seems to be traditional," he
says, "that chief engineers must
complain about excessive water con
sumption. Every ship of every na
tion probably has a sign that says,
`Too much water used on last trip.
Water will be turned off except for
certain hours if this practice contin
ues.' However," Bob points out,
"These signs are evidently put up as
soon as the ship is launched. They
are always brown with age."

East Cage Teams
Fear West, He Says
Why is it that a certain group of
Eastern colleges and universities
still prefer to stay in their own back
yard meeting Western and Far
Western basketball teams only on
home boors? Are Eastern basketball
teams afraid to go' West ?
That question is asked by Douglas
R. Mills, athletic director of the
University of Illinois, in the current
issue of Varsity, the- young man's
magazine. His answer is two-fold:
it's the fear of losing to Western op
position. And it's the fear of losing
By keeping their eyes on the juicy
bait of dollar signs, Mills declares,
Eastern metropolitan teams may
cripple intersectional basketball for
good. That's the only result possible
if schools like St. John's, FOrdham,
New York University, Manhattan,
City College of New York ? ' Tem'ple,
and Canisius continue their 'course.
Mills pointed out that in the four
teen years that Western teams have
journeyed to the East for occasional
games, they've won over sixty per
cent of their encounters. Similarly,
when stars 'of both coasts net last
March in a benefit match, that record
was underlined by a West Coast win.
