PRTTHINS DOWN
FRESH6BSKETEERS
Develops Formidable Yearling Squad
From Original Field of
200 Candidates
COACH HAS DIFFICULT TIME
PICKING BEST COMBINATIONS'
From a field of 200 candidates,
Coach Derrill Pratt of the freshman
basketball team has finally developed
a yearling basket squad that is quite
formidable. When the call for mate-
rial was first issued by the coach, he
was snowed under with the largest
turnout that had ever answered the
premier call at this University. From
an overwhelming abundance of for-I
wards, centers, and guards, the coach
had to select a squad which was man-
ageable, and by a process of choosing
players and working them in different
combinations, the mentor has thinned
the squad down so that only the best
of the candidates remain.
All Men Good
The most remarkable thing about
the squad is the absence of a super
star who stands out above the rest.
Anyone of the five or six best men
on the aggregation would shine above
their fellow players if they were play-
ing on an ordinary college freshman
squad. On this team, however, they
maintain their places with difficulty.
Two men who came out for the fresh
team with basketball records made at
one of the small colleges of the state
were unable to make a place on the
squad. Another evidence of the
squad's strength is the fact that all
of the basketeers with one exception
are six-footers.
The men are so well matched that
the coach finds difficulty in naming
five men who would constitute a first
team. Ho wever, five players have
earned a slightly higher place for
themselves than have the others. They
are Arch McGriegor ag.d Kennedy, for-
wards, McWood, center, and Ely and
Swan, guards. Kennedy is probably
the best basket cager on the squad,
while McGregor displays a finished
skill at dribbling the ball down the
floor. McWood is not a player of the
sensational type but is undoubtedly
the best center on the squad.
Ely Sticks to Man
Ely was on the Hillsdale college
team last year which lost to the Mih-
igan court squad.- This man is a
good basket sinker but because of his
ability at sticking to an opponent is
of more value to the team at running
guard. Swan, the other member of
the team, plays a sure, steady game
and is a good man at the standing
guard position.
Birk and Roth, forwards, Lawton
and Elliott, centers, and John Mc-
Gregor and Nellis, guards, are hardly
less qualified for handling the ball
than are those named first. The
coach forms a team from these me
which often overcomes the other five
Next year's outlook on Varsity mate
rial from the present fresh squad i

deal from his protegees when they ar
turned loose in Varsity competition

KARPUS SECOND AMOUNG
CONFERENCE SCORERS~
TIES FOR SECOND WITH TAYLOR
OF WISCONSIN, HAVING
71 POINTS
With a total of 71 points, Capt. Ar-
thur Karpus of the Varsity basketball
team is tied for second place among
the Conference basketball scorers.
Leading the Big Ten in total number
of points is Birkhoff, brilliant forward
of Chicago, and 'Captain Taylor of
Wisconsin shares second place with
Karpus.
-To' gain this high place Karpus in
eight games has tossed in 15 field
goals and 41 free throws. His record
in making fouls count is the highest
in the Conference. Birkhoff has made
20 field baskets and has counted 36
free throws. Taylor has netted 32
baskets from the floor and has count-
ed 27 fouls.
The nearest Wolverine player to
Karpus is Whitlock, who has made
nine field goals and two free throws
for 20 points, and as a result is 16th
in the standing. Dunne, who started
the season late, is 19th as a result of
making 10 field goals.

With the victory of Alpha Sigma
Phi over Sigma Alpha Epsilon Tues-
day night, the interfraternity basket-
ball tournament came to a successful
conclusion. The final score of the
game was 22 to 15, but does not in-
dicate the hard battle put up by the
S. A. E. aggregation. The offensive
play was featured by both teams, the
winners being one point to the good
at the end of the first half and lead-
ing by the same scant margin at the
conclusion of the third quarter.
The ability of Meyers to hit the
center of the basket was largely re-
sponsible for the victory of the Alpha
Sigs, while the heady work of Sey-
mour and Dunleavy kept the loser's
score well up in addition to holding
down the counting of their victorious
opponents. MacGregor and McWood
for Alpha Sigma Phi also played stel-
lar games, being remarkably fast at
working the ball down the court.
The final result of the tourney has
little effect on the relative positionsI
of the first ten fraternities save to
place Alpha Sigma Phi among the
leaders and to bring about a tie for
tenth place between Delta Chi and
Phi Gamma Delta. Zeta Psi contin-

Preparations Almost Completed
Preparations are practically com-
pleted for the trip to Madison, Wis.,
where the Wisconsin varsity team will
be met on Feb. 19eand 20. The Cardin-
als have also been forced to postpone
a number of their games because of
poor ice conditions so the local dope-
sters have been unable to get a line
on the strength, of the team's next col-
legiate opponent.

Eighteen events feature the swim-
ming exhibition to be presented by
members of the Varsity and Fresh-

benefit of more than 200 members of
the women's swimming classes being
conducted under the auspices of the

swimming will be on hand.
The program includes such events
as the plunge for distance, fancy div-
ing, 40, 100, and 220 yard free style
races, 150 yard back stroke and 100
yard breast stroke events, a relay,

ish the element of comedy for the
spectators, there being medley and
Chinese races, a clothes swim, and a
rough house water polo game. Coach
Drulard will offer a feature in his at-
home-in-the-water performance, and,
will also demonstrate various means
of life saving and resuscitation.

tors in attempts which will be made
