29, 1919. THE MICHIGAN DAILY
BASKETBLL IVE DUE
FOR EASY WORK SPELL
COACH FEELS QUINTET MERITS
LET UP FROM MLONG
Easy workouts are going to be the
main thing on the program for Var-
sity basketball practices this week.
Coach Mitchell has decided that the
greatest need of the team now is a
letting up from scrimmage, and giving
the squad a chance to rest. The whole'
quintet* has been working hard for
weeks without any relaxation.
Each man has been forced to put
forth his utmost to keep his berth
and the strain was beginning to tell.
However, the time of competition for
positions having passed for the most-
part, 'things have settled down to
where steadier and more consistent
basketball can be drilled into the-five,
and while none of the 12 now carried
on the Varsity squad have been form-
ally selected as regulars, or any oth-
e 's definitely appointed substitutes,
still, certain of the squad by virtue
of their repeated entrance into every
big game have earned what is con-
ceded by all a regular position.
A game tonight with a team rpere-
senting United States General Hospital
No. 36, will probably be the hardest
practice that the squad will be given
this week. Nothing can be learned
about the hospital team that will al-
low any prophecy as to the outcome
of the game but it is expected that the
Maize and Blue team will experience
no difficulty in securing a victory.
Preparation for the battle with the
University of Illinois is what is oc-
cupying the attention of the coach
now. He says that the teams ought to
line up about evenly. Illinois was
rated at the first of the season as the
probable winner of the Conference

Michigan Falls' Before )ouble Defeat
and Drops Into Second
MINNESOTA SHARES PERFECT
AVERAGE WITH MAROON SQUAD
Hoosiers Lose Second Game of Week;
Illinois 'Team Continues Un-
Conference basketball during the
past week has been' marked by the
steady hold on ;the lead maintained by
Chicago and Minnesota, and'
by the drop of Michigan, Illinois, and
Indiana. Northwestern and Purdue
improved themselves slightly, and
Iowa broke even. Ohio State and
Wisconsin did not play Big Ten teams.
The real feature was the continued
unsteadiness shown by Illinois. This
veteran aggregation fell decisively be-
fore Minnesota, suggesting that thede-
feat by Purdue was not such an acci-
dent as it seemed.
Feature Star Centers
The. Gophers and the Maroons are
busy setting a strenuous pace for
each other; neither team has lost a
game. Both fives illustrate the value
of a moderate number of veterans
coupled with a little new blood. But
each of them has that pearl, a real
center. Gorgas is not quite the scorer
that Kingsley' is, but as a defensive
man he has t]Ae Minnesotan excelled.
The season is still young. Illin-
ois may come back, and Purdue is in
an excellent position to threaten. But
a three game lead at this stage in-
dicates real strength, and the followers
of Chicago and Minnesota may be al-
lowed a little optimism.
Indiana Falls -Again
Indiana had an unfortunate week,
having followed her Michigan defeat
with another at the hands of Iowa.
The latter, however, fell before Pur-
due. Michigan had a disastrous visit
in Chicago, but the showing made
there leaves plenty of confidence that
she will vastly improve her position
before the season closes.

COOK AND JOHNSON DISPLAY
SPEED IN PRACTICE DASHES
Track workouts are beginning to
show the old time life and pep. The
various squads are turning out in
larger numbers and the whole pro-
gram is speeding up as the time for
the first meets approaches.
Bob Cook is displaying good form
and promises to come up to all ex-
pectations as one of Michigan's point
winners in the dash events. Cook
broke into the competition sprints yes-
terday for the first time this season.
Carl Johnson was out yesterday aft-
ernoon, warming up, and in two or
three heats nosed out Cook and Nash
to the string. Johnson will undoubt-
edly be able to uphold his past record
in the Conference this spring, the dope
being that he will carry two firsts in
at least two events.
Pitcher Kicks on Terms of Contract
Scott Perry, star of Connie Mack's
team, goes on record as being the first
to register a protest on the terms of
his contract. The question again aris-
es concerning the worth of a first class
pitcher. *If it were not for Mack,
Perry might still be driving a truck,
and on the other hand Scott was the
only attraction that brought the fans
out to see the Athletics play. There
are arguments on either side.
To Start Tour with Baltimore Scrap
Chicago, Jan. 28.- Pal Moore, the
conqueror of the sensational Jimmy
Wilde, left for Baltimore tonight on
the first leg of what his managers,
Nate Lewis and Tommy Walsh, call
his "victory tour." He battles Young
McGovern there and has a heavy string
of tilts in the East and Middle West
after which he goes to England to
fight a return match with Wilde for
a big purse.
West Virginia to Meet Princeton
Morgantown, W. Va., Jan. 28.-West
Virginia university will play its first
game with one of the Big Three when
the Mountaineers meet the Princeton
eleven this fall.

Coach H. F. Rowley's All-Fresh
basketball team will play a prelim-
ary game before the Michigan-Gen-
eral Hospital No. 36 encounter Wed-
nesday night, Jan. 29. Coach Row-3
ley has not as yet, decided upon a
definite line-up but has announced
the following probable team to start:
forwards, Westbrook and Raye;
center, Dunne; guards, Merkel and
Peare. Others of the squad will be
sent in before the end of the game.
The opposing team, the "Has-Beens,",
is composed of several men prom-
inent in Varsity athletics and cam-
pus affairs. Cooper and Cruze will
play forwards; Olbhmacher, center;
Cartwright, Reininger, Stringer and
Mitchell Coaching Yearlings
Coach Mitchell of the Varsity
basketball squad has been directing
the affairs of the first year men for
the past few days as Rowley has
been out of town. To develop speed
and teamwork several fast practice
games have been played by the four
teams now in action.
Wednesday or Thursday Rowley
will pick the eight memebrs of the
1922 Fresh basketball team. The
task of selecting this team is made
very difficult as nearly every man of
the many now turning out is worthy,
of serious consideration. Much will
depend on the playing of the vari-
ous men in the preliminary Wed-
nesday night. Only the necessity of
working .with a small group forces
Rowley to choose his team.
Individuals to Get Attention
The All-Fresh is really working
toward Varsity basketball next yea'f
and the year after, so with the pres-
ent large squad it is impossible to
give each man the attention needed
to develop his best game. The men
not chosen this year should not be
discouraged as failure to make the
first year teams does not spoil an
athletic career. Many of Michigan's
good athletes have not been picked !
on their freshman teams.
In choosing 'his team Rowley will
consider the following men: West-
brook, Raye, Burkhardt, Mdilstr6p,
Rannel, forwards, Dunne and Mason,
centers, Walsson, Barney, Creno, Al-
len, Merkel, and Peare, guards. Oth-
ers will have a chance but these play-
ers have been showing the best bas-
ketball throughout the season and
will come in for first choice.

A mat tournament was held at the
University of Pennsylvania Monday
