In announcing the selection of the
first two basketball fives, which in the
opinion of The Michigan Daily sport
staff embraces the 10 men whose in-
dividual play has in its quality stood
out from the play of their team-mates,
full realization is acknowledged that
this choice may not be unanimous.
Some not represented -in this selec-
tion might have won places had their'
teams not dropped from the competi-
tion in the first game.
A wealth of forward material was
disclosed in the series, making a
choice of only four men for the all-
star notice, a difficulttask. Stuart
and Corey surpassed all other for-
wards in accuracy of basket tossing,
seldom missing a fair throw, and cag-
ing many under close covering. Weeks
started out the season with a burst of
speed that bid fair to place him on the
first five, but lost the choice because
of slowing up in the later games of
the season. Spring although partici-
pating in but one match, demonstrated
enough ability to be picked for the
second quintet. Thienes deserves hon-
Easily downing all opposition from
rival centers, Brush beyond doubt is
the logical man for the pivot position.
The only center in the series that ap-
proached him in class was Warner
who was picked on the showing made
in his only game.
The four guards given mention are
on a par when ability to interfere with
the making of baskets is considered
but the scoring prowess of Paterson
and Marsh makes them of particular
value to a team. Tower and Fletcher
are mentioned for their guarding work
Basketball during the past interclass
series is said to have aroused enough
general interest to support a Varsity
team, meeting with representative fiv-
es from other universities. If inter-
collegiate relations should be resum-
ed either of the two selected teams
would ably uphold the honor of the

Returning from their 5,000 mile trip

clubs of the University of Wisconsin.
The affair will be the first combined
appearance of clubs representing the
two institutions in five years.
The Madison concert will be given in

witi ia seating capacity of 600. When
the Wisconsin and Michigan clubs
played together the last time, in 1908,
the concert took place in Milwaukee.
According to information received
from Madison by the local manage-
ment, the idea of a joint concert has
met with favorable comment at Wis-

tol, the members of the Michigan mu-
sical clubs will be entertained at fra-

pleted by Manager Malcolm McCor-
mick. Advertising matter has been
forwarded to all the 12 towns where
stops will be made, and reports from
the west indicate that the Michigan
