squads of Harvard, Yale, Princeton,
Cornell and Pennsylvania may be com-
pared with the Big Ten teams as well
as those from the Pacific coast. The
Wolverine nine of 1915 captained by
the versatile George Sisler, present
first sacker of the St. Louis Browns
and one of the best swatsmen in the
game, was chosen by a number of the
leading sporting writers as the na-
tional champion. During the past two
e seasons the Wolverines have been able
in to carry away the Western Conference
title with the loss of but one Bi Ten
de contest. This season the Wolverines
leare minus the services oftsome of last
year's stars but have a strong nu-
hcleus around which to build a pow-
Sersul nine. Barring all accidents, the
season should treat the fans to some
of the fastest games ever witnessed on
the Ferry field diamond.

INABILITY TO SHOQT BASKETSi
ONLY GLARING WEAK.
Lack of basket shooters was the chief1
reason for the defeat of Michigan at the1
hands of Chicago Saturday night.
None of the Wolverines were able to
break strongly into the scoring col-
umn, while the Maroons had little dif-
ficulty in throwing baskets when they

lack of accuracy at such times.
LBirkhoff, Chicago forward', played
the most sensational game, fromthe
point of scoring. His shots were fast

Clicago has now won eight games,'
and is still in first place, but only a
stride ahead of the flying quintet from
Purdue. The Boilermakers have won
the last six games they have played,
all by comfortable margins. Last Sat-
urday they swamped Northwestern at
Evanston 50 to 26. Due to this win
and the defeat of Illinois, 32 to 29, by
Wisconsin, Purdue is now in second
place and rapidly overtaking first. The
Maroons will have a hard time stop-

RULES IN FORCE
Many colleges are striving this year
