First Of icial Game of Season
Be Hard One for the

Will i

is Mfehigan agiun going to be presented by a basketball team of the
calibre of i 91, quintet Michigan hopes not. The team this year
is stronger ita n the one of last winter, but this is only the Wolverines'
second season at the court game. The school cannot expect to win
chmampionsi ips yet, but it can hope to keep out of the Conference cel-
lar two years running. To insure the most success possible Coach
Mitchell and his moen must realize hat tlhe University is behind them.
The proof of is backing is the attendance at the games. #
Miehi gan opens its season, officially, this evening. The strong Camp
Custer ( llcers' team meet the Wolverines at Waterman gymnasium.
Show the amen that you are behind the team, that you want a better
winter. le there this evening when the whistle blows.

Williams Expected to Re Big Factor
In Local Defensive



No one will be admitted to the
basketball game this evening un-
less they have their athletic w
books. These books can be ob-
tained at the athletic office upon
presenting the outdoor physical
education coupon received at the
Streasurer's office.

Michigan will open the 1918 basket-
ball season tonight, playing the first,
regularly scheduled game of the year-
in the Waterman gymnasium at 8
o'clock when Coach Mitchell's boys
will line up against the Camp Custer
Officers' team.
Last night. the quintet was put
through the final paces before the
battle and the hard practice at , the
eleventh hour should count a great
deal. It was the first real workout
on the new and much larger court. A
steady drill on shooting and offensive
work was the main thing on the pro-
Coach Mitchell warns against over-
confidence in this game. "The officers'
have a team that will give us a hard
fight and Michigan will have to put
up the best basketball that it knows
to win. Our. passing and team work
is all that I can wish for at this stage
of practice but our eye for shooting
may cause us trouble. However, the
spirit of the team is excellent and
this may overcome that handicap. If
the shooting improves, we can put
them away comfortably."

Walter Camp's All-Service footballI
team has been named. Following his
example of last year the great foot-
ball critic has picked the 11 men who
in his estimation have performed the
best on the field of action, from the
multitude (Af men playing on the many
service eleven at the cantonments
and stations in this country. Three
of the gobs playing with the Great
Lakes were include in his choice, and
one sailor from the Chicago Naval
Reserve team was also honored The
Yale critic was less partial to the
East in composing this eleven than
he was when picking his All-Ameri-
can collegiate team.
The men are:
Woodruff, Granite State, L. E.
Bentz, Chicago Naval Res., L. T.
Sutherland, Camp Greenleaf, L. G.
Bachman, Great Lakes, C.

The style of play to be used by the
officers' team is generally unknown,
but it is said that it is sufficierit to
give any quintet a run. Their rec-
ord in other sports, as well as in the
court game, gives the camp a Ligh

His Varsity football playing wa's
done in 1913 and 1914 and Coach Yost
said of him in writing to his brother,
I. P. James, "You can well have a pride
in the character and manliness of a
brother like Efton. Knowing him in-
timately as a member of the Varsity
team throughout two seasons I can
readily say that I know how well he
faced every duty and danger which
confronted him throughout his ser-
vice to our country." Lieutenant James
was one of the most popular men in
the University while here and had the
reputation of being one of the best ends
the team had had for several seasons.

the Great Lakes are being strength-

ing 211 errors, were the poorest on the
defensive in the circuit and held eighth
place with .961.

burg, was the best fielding pitcher.

Purple Football Mentor Resigns
Coach Fred J. Murphy of North-
western has resigned from his posi-
tion as football coach. Business in-
terests in Colorado have taken up
much of the coach's time in the past

covers next year it is expected that
the resignation will be accepted on
account of the five years' faithful
service which he has rendered.

that the sturdy guard is out tempor-
arily and especially now, still many

Custer Has Good Record
The Camp Custer five have an ad-
mirable record and have worked up
a powerful team. The most interest-
ing of their victories is the game with
Kalamazoo Normal, whom Michigan
have scheduled for Jan. 18. The of-
ficers cleaned up on the Kazooers,
whose team this year is very strong.
The officers' have several former
college stars playing with them.

Seven football men from the Uni-

Missouri Valley all-star eleven which
was chosen by the sport editor of the

team in the history of the game, go-
ing as far east as Brooklyn and as
far west as California.
Boxing Not Taboo in Pennsylvania
The courts of Pennsylvania have
decided that a boxing contest is per-
nissable under the law which bans
prize fighting. The distinction is,
drawn on the division of the money
the contestants receive. When the
money is evenly divided the contest is
called a boxing match.
