Delta Upsilon Leads Way with Trigon
Second in Exciting Meet at
Y. M. C. A.
Delta Upsilon ............24
Trigon ...................21
Zeta Psi ....... .....11
Kappa Beta Psi .. ..... 6
Phi Delta Theta .......... 5
Zeta Beta Tau ........... 3
Alpha Delta Phi .......... 1
Delta Upsilon won first honors in
the interfraternity swimming meet
yesterday afternoon due largely to the
versatile aquatic work of Don Nixon,
'24, who swam into, first places in the
40, 100, and 220 yard free style events
and took second in the 60 yard back
stroke thus adding up eighteen of
his team's 24 points. Sharing high
honors with him was Hyde, of Tri-
gon, who won the 60 yard back stroke
and copped second in the 100 yard
free style, 60 yard breast stroke, and
fancy diving.
Carnegie Stars
Neither must Carnegie, of Kappa
Beta Psi, be forgotten for, by virtue
of his victory In the 60 yard breast
stroke and his taking of third honors
in the fancy diving, he garnered all
of his team's six points.
Results might have been different
had Hyde, swimming in the first heat
of the 40 yard event, kept to his
course. He was leading Smith, of
r Zeta Psi, by a slight margin when he
veered into Smith's lane, the judges
ruling contact and disqualifying the
Trigon star. In the second-heat of
the same event Dunlop, Trigon, out-
distanced Randall, Chi Psi, and in the
third Nixon swam home ahead of
Steketee, of Phi Delta Theta. The
finals of this event were perhaps the
most hotly contested of the meet, Nix-
on beating out his two competitors by
less than a fifth of a second.
Relay Close
Zeta Psi and Trigon swam a close
relay final, the former winning by
the narrowest of margins. The plunge
for distance disclosed a new star in
the person of Yerkes, of Delta Upsi-
don, who defeated both of the plung-
ers of last year's Varsity by a good
margin. The fancy diving, too,
brought to light an unknown. Corby,
Phi Delta Theta, had little difficulty
in winning the event over Hyde and
Carnegie who, in turn, were well
ahead of their nearest competitors.
The hundred yard event was won by
Nixon, less than a second ahead of
Hyde, with Smith a good third. Adams
cornered his team's only point by
taking third in the plunge event.

Averaging about the same number
as. in former years, 51 students were
treated as patients in the University
hospital during the months of Novem
ber and December. Last year the
total number for the same perid
was 65. Although most of the cases
this fall were of minor ailments,
few of a more serious nature were
handled, such as acute appendicitis
one of scarlet fever and one of frac-
At present there are only three stu-
dents in the hospital.

Champaign, Ill., Dec. 10.-, Illinois
clubs throughout the country whose
memberships are made up of alumni
of the University of Illinois, have been
urged to co-operate with George Huff,'
athletic director at the University, in
his fight against gambling on inter-
college sports.
The appeal has been made from the D
office of the secretary-treasurer of'
the Illinois Alumni association, and
has gone out to the clubs in the form
of a circular letter. The campaigns
against gambling this year, it is said,a
reduced betting at the championship t
game between the Illinois and Ohio1
State football teams to a minimum.

Iowa City, Ia., Dec. 7. - Although°
the University of Iowa basketball e
coach has three letter men of last
year, Captain Kaufmann, A. Devine,C
and Shimek, -from which to build a e
quintet, prospects are but mediocre.a
The squad has been working nightly
for several weeks with the excep-
tion of Devine and Kaufmann, who
were with the football team. Baskety
shooting is fair and teamwork is im-a
proving, but floor work on the parts
of the individuals is far below par.
So far none of the tricks, not evenc
the simple dribble, has shown upl
with any brilliancy to say nothing oft
pivoting, reverse turning, and the}
numberless other floor stunts.
. Kiaufmann Sure of Berth
Captain Kaufmaan, who played1
guard on the football team, is thet
only one sure of his berth as there ist
a dearth of guard material. Froh-#
wein, who subbed last season, has the1
edge on the other guard so far. He is
fairly fast, speedier than Kaufmann,
and will probably be the running
guard. Neither are particularly ac- r
curate at shooting baskets. Kauf-
mann's best bet is riding the heels of
a forward.
The center is between two seniors.3
Dyke, captain of the track team,t
Tiede, and Postma, a lanky sopho-
more who may develop with the sea-
son but at present is of second team
speed. Dyke is the one most likely to1
cop. He is tall, of average speed and
has some ability at shooting baskets.
This is his third year out for thea
team. Tiede has plenty of fight but
that is about all.
Coach James N. Ashmore has better
material for forwards than any other
positions, as both of last year's men.,
Shimek and A. Devine, are back. A
Devine had his first experience at the'
"ame of Iowa last year, but he rap-
idly developed into a steady and re-
liable player if not spectacular. Bet-
ter things are expected of him this
Shimek, who led the conference in
L individual scoring last eyar, is not
going very well this year although
he has practiced several weeks. He
4 seems to be slow at getting into con-
dition, and his basket eye is off. It
is hoped that he will get rid of the
jinx before the opening game.
He has been splitting periods of
, scrimmage with Ehresman, a tall

graceful man, who has plenty of
speed and a good basket eye but lacks
the punch the little Bohemian forward
Smith a Possibility
Ehresman will put up stiff compe-
- tition for one of the forwards; it is
hard to *ay yet which one may lose
- his job as Devine and Shimek com-
pare about even. Ty Smith of the
football.- team may also develop into,
a possibility at forward.
Other aspirants for the team who
made a showing on the subs last year
are Klatt and Lohman, working at
r guards. There are few of last year's

Fresh Engineer Smoker Tonight
e The initial class smoker of the
d freshman engineers will be held at
s 7:30 o'clock this evening at the Un-
a ion. The program committee has se-
e cured James E. Johns, '23E, presi-
;, dent of the sophomore engineers, to
Sspeak at the smoker. Music will be
furnished by the class orchestra and
- quartette. There willbe plenty of
cider, doughnuts, and cigarettes.

S Df R D E ye
Wesbrook and Slaughter Back With t
Landowski and Naylor Showing
Well in Early Workouts de
In the same category with the dash sq
quad the Wolverine pole vault trio za
ppears by all pre-season forecasts an
o be sure of adding points to the
Michigan totals in the meets of the H
oming season. In open competition
ast season Wesbrook, Slaughter and I
Cross formed what was probably the
trongest unit in the event that the
Conference could boast, Wisconsin he
excepted. . On two distinct occasions if
hese men scored a slam, taking all At
hree places for Michigan. At the
llinois Relay carnival last spring li
Slaughter tied for first place, break- Ti
ng the carnival record in so doing. w
Wesbrook was always counted on for el
points and seldom failed this trust. th
Landowski, who is in his first year be
of Varsity competition, is being tout- b
ed as a worthy successor for Cross p
and with Naylor, who has given signs le
of ability, should assist the two vet-
rans in maintaining the 1919 stand- fr
ard. th
Will Miss Johnson th
Captain Johnson and Beardsley fo
were the hurders par excellence last be
year, and the loss of both men leaves ti
a great gap in the ranks of the Var- s
sity this year. There is a dearth of
good material at present, but a few tv
of the men who have reported should F<
profit by instruction and bolster up in
this event appreciably. Sargent, Spur- in
rier, Cruckshank, and Herringshaw fi
have made a fair start in this event. b
In the half mile, Burkholder, who t
placed in several meets last year, is gi
the most valuable of the present ma- s
terial. Douglass, Carson and Fitz- a
gerald have reported and are being in
put through a thorough course of in-
struction to remedy an event that was T
weak. last year. The All-fresh squad
was weak in this event and no good
men were sent up to the Varsity.
If some good distance men can be
developed, the team will be in a fair ci
way to surpass the record of last a
year. It was in the longer runs that
the Maize and Blue was woefully r
weak, and Just this fact enabled Ili-
nois to nose Michigan out of the S
Western indoor meet by 5 1-2 ponts. D
Lukins, Everett and Denton are the w
men upon whom Coach Farrell has E
centered most interest up to date. '2
Denton, who was the freshman star
last year, is expected to strengthen
the team in this department. May-
nard's graduation left the team with-
out a dependable man in the two mile. M
a need that wil have to be filled if P
the team is to be successful. Hof- f
stetter, Leland, Penberthy, Whitte-
more, and some of the Cross Country
squad are working at the long grind -
now and are making the outlook more
nromising with every practice. Hof-
stetter has returned to school after
a year's absence and has fallen back
into the track sport with eagerness.
He was the winner of'the Harpham
trophy run two years ago when he
was a freshman, and if he has not
lost a portion of his ability by a re-
cent sickness is expected to develop
into a star.
Walker Does Well
All track followers, who remember
the strength of the high jump duo,
Johnson and Later, last year, will

realize what a task it will be to re-
place them. In Walker, of the 1923
squad, Coach Farrell believes he has
a man who can fill Later's position,
and with Ward, Spurrier, and Rea,
the basketball star, to work with
should turn out a fairly representative
In the weight events it is some-
what ofa problem to find a man who
will be as valuable to the team as
Baker was. Stipe and Van Orden
have had a year of the Farrell brand
of instruction and with a little more
time will be able to turn in points
in the shot put. Stipe has also done
fairly well with the hammer and will
probably take care of this event. The
Javelin throw is another department
of the team that is well taken care
of. Last spring in the Western Con-
ference meet -on Ferry field Hofmann
took first place for Michigan with a
heave that broke all existing Big Ten
records. Dunne was well advanced in
the competition in the same meet but
was disqualified on a technicality.
