Twelve Men on Squad Led by Coach1
Mather to Columbus and
Twelve men, including Coach Math-
er, Manager Logan, and. Trainer
Hahn, composed the Michigan squad
that left late last night for Columbus,,
via Chicago, to play Ohio State uni-
versity and Illinois in the final two
games of the 1921 schedule. The
players that were taken are: Captain
Karpus, Miller, Whitlock, Dunne,
Weiss, Rea, Williams, LeGalley, and
The two games, especially the sec-
ond, will be among the hardest of the
year. Ohio holds one verdict over the
Wolverine, having won early in the
year here in Ann Arbor, 22 to 10.
Since that time Michigan has improv-
ed'so greatly that there is no compar-
ison between the team that took the
floor that night, and the one that the
State court followers will see in ac-
tion tonight.
Ohio Improved
The result of the game, however, is
no certainty. Ohio seems to have im-
proved of late, if the 32 to 35 score
the Illinois game may be taken as
any criterion. The only other ex-
planation of that game possible, is
that Illinois was off form, which is
not likely.
Michigan has shown the most mar-
velous comeback of any team in the
Conference. After the disastrous ear-
ly season games, the Wolverines seem-
ed to get under way, and in the last
five straight games have had little
difficulty in winning at will. While
the Illinois contest was a scrap from
start to finish, the Maize and Blue was
ahead at all times, and showed suf-
ficient superiority to merit the vic-
tory. Purdue was harder to defeat,
and only the Michigan drive that net-
ted five field baskets in the second
half overcome the Boilermaker lead.
Ohio is at present a team that Mich-
igan should defeat. The Red and Gray
has had a bad season, and the Mich-
igan victory is one of the two that
they have been able to score this year.
On dope Michigan is the favorite, and
barring overconfidence, Mather's quin-
tet should even the season game score
Title in Doubt
At Urbana Monday night, Michigan
faces what is the most difficult test
of the year. As events are now shap-
ing, the Conference title will hang in
the balance in that game. Wisconsin
should win from both Ohio and Min-
nesota, and if Michigan wins from
Ohio and then from Illinois, Wiscon-
sin, Illinois and -Michigan will be in-
volved in a triple tie for first place,
with no conclusive way of determin-
ing even a newspaper champion, since
Illinois will have lost twice to Michi-
gan, Michigan twice to Wisconsin and
Wisconsin twice to Illinois. The only
hope for a title on the part of the Il-
inos team is to win from Michigan.
For this reason, if for no other, the
game should be the hardest fought
contest of the year. But this is far
from being the only reason. When
Michigan and Illinois meet there are
too many old scores to avenge for
either team to let the other win with-
out a counter argument. Michigan has
the two court games lost last season
to make up for, and Illinois will be

out for blood after the Michigan vic-
tory two weeks ago. The fact that
the game is in the Illini bailiwick will
aid the Orange and Blue to a great
extent, as will the return of Carney,
if he is able to stand the gaff for the
full time.

Swimmers Seek Immediate Sanction;

Varsity swimmers will petition the
Board in Control for immediate recog-
nition so that the team may be sent
to the Conference meet according to
plans decided upon at a meeting heldi
Wednesday night at the Union. An
attempt will be made to secure everyt
available signature on Monday, whent
tables will be placed about the cam-c
pus and opportunities given the stu-
dent body to affix their names.
Coach Drulard is enthusiastic overA
the project. "There is no just rea-
son," he says, "why Michigan should
not be represented. We have waited
long enough for the completion of the1
pool, and have organized a team that
compares favorably with the best in
the Big Ten. It is only fair that the t

night in the interlass basketball

Waterman gymnasium when Merner's
Fresh lits defeated Sterling's Fresh

a brilliant game for the losing five

his team. The Homeops defeated the
Foresters 10 to 4 in a game in which.
both teams had difficulty in scoring.
The Junior Engineers beat the litsI

Only one game is scheduled for the
week end in the interclass tourney,
the lower medics meeting the upper
medics at 1:30 o'clock this afternoon
in Waterman gymnasium.
Plans for the annual interclass
track meet have been completed by
the intramural department which an-

This is the date of the Northwestern

interclass meet. All men who wish
to enter may sign up at the intramur-

It has been decided to award four
places in each event and the points
will be given as follows: First place
five points, second threetthird two,
fourth one. A man must make at
least two points to win numerals, and
any first year man who is entitled to
numerals will be given those of the
All-fresh track team. In the past the
yearling track men have been picked
and awarded numerals without having
to actually compete for them. This
year they will be forced to win their

Competition in High Jump
Next to the mile relay, 'the high

competition. Alberts, the -Illinois

phy, of Notre Dame, national cham-
pion, has cleared the bar at six feet,
three and one half inches. Murphy
who is credited with an even higher
mark of six feet, five inches, is out
to retain his laurels. Evan, of Earl-
ham, and Osborne, another Indian

jumper, have marks well over six
feet. Bradley, of Kansas,-is likewise
a jumper of merit.
All of the schools are entered in
the 75 yard dash, one of the special
events. Losch, Simmons and Kelly,
of Michigan; Hayes, of Notre Dame;
and Kelly, of Minnesota, are the best
known entries. Hayes, the Notre
Dame sprinter, is perhaps the fast-
