Mather's Men Ready to Take on Team
from Celery City in Season's
Opening Game
Tomorrow night at Waterman gym-
nasium the Wolverine basketball
quintet will play the curtain raiser of
the season with Kalamazoo College.
Kalamazoo has always been noted for
its powerful court teams and accord-
ing to reports its team this year
promises to be no exception. The
Kalamazoo team is coming with a
special incentive to win, as Coach
Mather before handling the Michigan
team was for five years head mentor
at Kalamazoo, and to defeat a Michi-
gan team coached by its former head
will be the endeavor of every visiting
Look to Stiff Contest
Although Coach Mather is not afraid
of the outcome, he is not underesti-
mating the power of his former pro-
tegees, and says that he is looking
forward to a hard contest. The ini-
tial appearance of the Wolverines
will be marked by a new pair of for-
wards recruited from last year's
freshman squad. Miller and Whitlock
have been handling the forward posi-
tions and from present appearances
will start tomorrow. Weiss at cen-
ter with Williams and Paper at
guards- are the other men who have
been doing the most consistent work
in practice.
Many of the veterans from last year
are unable to play because of injuries
or else have not been out long enough
tl regain their old form at hitting the
basket. All of these men, in addi-
tion to Cappon of the last year's All-
fresh team, will be available by the
time Conference games start.
Lineup Has New Faces
Williams at guard has been a tow-
er of strength to the team for two
seasons, while Paper promises to be
a competent running mate for Jack.
Whitie Wilson and Peare are also out
and are likely to break into the play.
Weiss is playing center in the ab-
- sence of Duke Dunne, who has not
yet been able to report for practice
since the close of football. Whitlock
and Miller give evidence of being
able to give the opposing guards a
real job if they are to be kept, from
ringing up baskets.
Unless the visitors fail to live up
to advanced reputation a close game
is. probable. Substitutions will be
made by Coach Mather if the Wolve-
rines are able to forge ahead to a
comfortable margin. Admission to
the game can -be obtained with the
athletic coupon book as only in Con-
ference contests will the attendance
be limited and reservations made in

The same rules which hold for the
fraternity tourney will be effective
for this affair. All teams .desiring to

Athletic Echoes
(By H. B. C.)
Ithaca, N. Y., Dec. 8.-Plans are be-
ing made to establish winter sports
at Cornell for the coming season, on
a more comprehensive basis than ever
before. Several innovations will be
made this year, and a program is be-
ing laid out which calls for the erec-
tion of a permanent winter clubhouse
on Beebe Lake, to be followed by oth-
er improvements in succeeding years.
Beebe Lake will be divided into
three general sections, to accommo-
date the various phases of winter ac-
tivities, and laccrosse coach, Nicholas
Bawlf, has been engaged to coach
hockey. Work on the temporary warm-
ing house was started yesterday, and
other preparations are being made
in anticipation of the coming season.
A suitable house will be provided this
year to serve refreshments to the
skaters and patrons of other winter
sports. Colored lights will be install-
ed around the lake to add a carnival
appearance to the scene. The college
of architecture is now working on
plans for a permanent winter club-
house which will fill the long felt
need at Beebe Lake, and it is possi-
ble that Alumni field, hitherto used
for soccer practice, will be flooded in
order to afford additional area for
hockey practice and fancy skating.
Ithaca, N. Y., Dec. 8.-Mayer and
Kaw, star players on Cornell's foot-
ball squad during the season just end-
ed, appear among the leaders in point
scoring ability in eastern intercolleg-
iate football for the season, having
taken third and fourth positions re-
spectively. While Kaw had a slight
advantage over Mayer in number of
touchdowns, having carried the pig-
skin over the goal line twelve times
to Mayer's ten, the latter, in kicking
thirteen goals from touchdowns, nos-
ed him out of third position by one
The varsity ranks fourth in the
number of points scored this fall, with
a total of 231, and also ranks fourth
in the number of touchdowns scored
throughout the season, having cross-
ed the opponents goal line 33 times.
Carey, varsty back, carried off fifth
honors, and incidentally made one of
the three longest drop-kicks of the
season, in the Dartmouth game.
Final preparations are being made
by the Cornell cross country squad
for the dual run which is to be held
with the crack athletes of Cambridge
and Oxford over the Rochammton,,..
England, course on Dec. 27. The team
will sail from New York City on Dee-
14, and the interim before the meet
will be devoted to recovering from
the effects of the voyage.
Great difficulty has been experienc-
ed by Jack Moakley, famous Cornell
track coach, in finding a course that
even approximates the obstacles pre-
cented by the Hare and Hound club
course over which the event will be
run. It was found necessary to press
into service the course used by the R.
0. T. C. cavalry unit, which had laid
out with wide ditches, high jumps.
and water jumps. With the hard work
that has been dealt out over this
course, the men are in fit condition
to meet Britain's best.
Competition for places on the team
has been keen and it is likely that
the seven men who are to represent
Cornell and the United States will not
be determined until just before the
first lap of the trip commences.

From Madison drifts the word that
Wisconsin's prospects in track look
good this year and the Badgers are
sending out no bear stories to conceal
their strength. With 10 "W" men
from last year's squad the Badgers are
planning to top the list when track
opens. With Knollin in the hurdles,
Sundt in the broad jump and Merrick
and Wilder, 12 feet men in the pole
vault, Coach Jones is constructing a
powerful squad.
It is not impossible that Centre col-
lege will.have a place on Northwest-
ern's schedule for 1921 according to
Director Evans. Other .non-Confer-
ence schools seeking games with the
Purple are Beloit and Notre Dame.
Hawathaway, center, on this year's
varsity has been chosen to lead the
team next year. Penfield, All-Western
guard, and captain of this year's
team graduates in the spring.


Anyone having personal
equipment in the Intramural
clubhouse can call for same be-
tween 3 and 5 o'clock today.
Ohio State
Ohio State has declined an offer
of Harvard for a football game be-
tween the two schools at Cambridge
in 1921. Reasons given for refusing
were that Harvard would not agree to
a return game at Columbus in 1922.
Twenty-two Buckeye gridders leave
Dec. 18 on the Pasadena trip for the
New Year's tilt with California, cham-
pions of the coast.
Three All-Eastern football elevens
have been picked at Dartmouth. These
carefully selected teams appear under
the headlines "Dartmouth makes All-
American choices." Presumably this
All-Eastern All-American team is con-
sidered liberal in that section of the
country, as most of the eastern in-
stitutions have men named. Without
stretching our imagination we venture
that Eckersall's All-Conference team
would press the easterners fiercely.
From Dartmouth's selections all of
Eckersall's men would be eligible to
play with the West as in no case is
there a conflict of names between the
East's All-American and Eckersall's
Leland Stanford
Plans for the erection of an ath-
letic stadium costing $750,000 have
been completed at Stanford. The new
stadium will be constructed in the
shape of a bowl and will have a seat-
ing capacity of 60,000 persons. In
addition the stadium will be equipped
with a 220 yard straightaway track
and will accommodate soccer and rug-
by football.
Only two grid men are lost to the
Iowa team through graduation. Beld-
ing, Captain A. Devine, G. Devine, and
Slater are among the letter men ex-
pected to be available for the 1921
team. Unless the board revises its
ruling on S. A. T. C. players Coach
Jones will have a strong nucleus to
begin with next season.

For all men interested in wrestling
there is to be an important meeting
at 7 o'clock this evening in the di-
rectors' office at Waterman gymna-
sium. At this time will be discussed
the prospects for the year, including
the possibility of securing outside
competition and getting recognition
for wrestling as an informal sport.
Means for obtaining a competent in-!
structor will also be taken up.
It is to be noted that the available
material out of which a strong
wrestling team could be picked is bet-
ter this year than at any time in the
past. There are a number of first
class men here who were members
of wrestling teams in other universi-
ties. All men who are contemplating
wrestling this year or who are in-
terested in furthering the sport at
Michigan so that competition with
other Conference schools may be se-
cured are urged to be present at the
meeting this evening.
Second place in the fraternity soc-
cer tournament was gained Tuesday
afternoon by Delta Chi when it edg-
ed out Zeta Psi by a 2 to 1 score. At
the end of the regular period the
tally was one all. In the overtime
which followed, Delta Chi managed to
put two corner kicks between the
goal, while Zeta Psi was putting one
through. By virtue of the victory
Delta Chi also wins the Class B cup.
The game was fast, clean, and bit-
ter. The result of the fight was not
certain at any moment of the fray.
Delta Chi had no star in particular
but was able to win by virtue of fine
team work. On the other hand Zeta
Psi had three exceptional forwards
in Johnson, Uteritz, and More but the
rest of the team was weak in feed-
ing the ball to these men. This game
concludes a very successful interfra-
ternity soccer season.
Profs. William H. Hobbs, Arthfr
W. Smith, Samuel Moore, and Walter
B. Pillsbury were chosen as repre-
sentatives to attend the annual con-
vention of the Association of Ameri-
can College Professors to be held in
Chicago Dec. 28 and 29, at a meeting
of the local chapter held at the Mich-
igan Union last night.
Several important amendments to
the constitution of the association
were passed upon at the meeting.

S"'Duke" Dunne, Captain-Elect Of
Football Team, Is Stellar Athlet

"Duke" Dunne, the recently chosen fast,
1921 football captain, is one of the that

however, that the coaches claim
no opponent outplayed him this

finest all-around athletes that Michi-
gan has ever possessed. To date Duke
has won three football "M"s, one bas-I
ketball letter, and an "aMa" in track.
In high school he also played base-
ball, but there is hardly time for him
to attempt that here.
The captain-elect entered the Uni-
versity in the fall of 1918. He played
end on the S. A. T. C. football team
of that year, all freshman eligibility
rules having been suspended. After
the close of the army regime, Duke
went out for the freshman basketball
five and won his numerals. He also
worked out in track a little that
A Three Sport Man
In his sophomore year, Duke again
played end on the Varsity football
team, acquitting himself creditably
and showing an abundance of fight.
The winter saw him out for the bas-
ketball team, where he displayed the
same qualities that had made him
conspicuous on the gridiron. He play-
ed center throughout the season and
was a tower of strength both offen-
sively and defensively. The Chicago
Tribune placed him at center on their
third All-Conference team. As soon
as the basketball season had ended
Duke went out for track, participat-
ing in the hurdles and weight events.
He did fairly well in every event in
which he entered although he didn't
shine in any one.
Took Part in Olympic Games
However, this all-around ability
stood him in good stead when it came
to the Olympic tryouts, for he was
chosen as one of the American rep-
resentatives in the pentathlon. He
performed well, finishing sixth in this
event at Antwerp.
This fall Duke was shifted to
guard, a position with which he was
wholly unfamiliar. He learned so

fall. He was plpeed on several see-
ond Conferenc teams and it is not
unlikely that Walter Camp will give
him honorable mention.
Brothers Were Stars
The next year's captain is an ideal
captain-a hard worker, full of on-

thusiasm, and a natural leader. Tw
of his brothers also won athletic fan
at Michigan. His brother, Edwai
played first base on the Varsity ft
four years from 1906 to 1909, an
another brother, Morrie, was a sta
end for three years, 1914, '15, and '1
besides being catcher on the baseba
