Eight Teams Will Play in First Roundj
In Waterman (Gymniasium
Eight teams, champions of the var-
ious districts of the state, will start
play tonight in the class A interscho-
astic basketball tournament, finals
the first game of which will be run
off at 7:15 o'clock at Waterman gym-
The drawing will be made at 3 o'-
clock this afternoon. Four games are
on tonight's card, the last contest
starting at 10:15 o'clock.
Muskegon high school, whose five
won the title last year at the Class
A tourney at East Lansing, is repres-l
ented by another powerful aggregation
which rules as the favorite to cop
the event this year. The Muskies are
led by Osterbaan, who made the first
All-American interscholastic court
team last season. He is also astar
football player, having been placed on
the All-State eleven for three success-
ive years.
Detroit Northwestern is conceded an.
excellent chance of winning the title
by virtue ofthe fact that the Colts
captured the city championship in De-
*roit last Friday night by easily de-
feating the Southeastern five, which
will also be on hand for the tourney.
The other teams entered are Negaun-
ee, Bay City, Pontiac, Battle Creek,
and Jackson.,
Theaathletes will arrive in Ann Ar-
bor this morning, although the Neg-
aunee representation has been in town

mnute Rockne will not coach the
Iowa football team next season.
It was officially announced yes-
terday that he had signed a 10
year contract to continue as
athletic director here. Iowa
made a bid for Rockne's serv-
ices effective next year when his{

Tuesday evening, the initial honors in
the class basketball ranks were aw-
.arded to the upper dents because of
their victory over the junior laws, 26
to 6.
The game was fast throughout and
was little marred by fouls. The dents
seemed to have the better passing
gamne and had the breaks with them
in thvrowing the ball through the hoop.
Brooks, dents, took first honors on
his team, while Roth, of the laws, was
the outstanding luminary for the los-
ers. Snodgrass, a law, was forced to
retire from the fray just before the
close of the first half when he sus-
tained an injured knee. His absence
lowered the efficiency of the laws.

displayed by the class champions

ning the finals from Case.
The first round of the class bowl-

Michigan's Varsity baseball team is
not composed of stars in the diamond
sport alone, a number of the candi-
dates for the nine being active in
other branches of athletics as well as
clever performers in the great Amer-
ican pastime.
Among the men who are working
out with Coach Fisher's hopefuls at ,
present are four Varsity captains and
two All-American men.
The first of these is Captain Jack
Blott who will pilot the Wolerine nine
this spring. Jack was Walter Camp's
choice for center on the first All-
American football team last fall. He
is the best catcher in the Conference,
combining his defensive ability withE
marked efficiency at hat.

in high school, but did not turn out
for Fisher's team until this year. He
has a good chance to make one of the
outfield berths, in which case the
Michigan nine would present the uni-
que spectacle of football captains
shagging flies.
The number of stars in the various
fields of sport making up the Michi-
gan nine comprises a situation with-
out equal in Michigan annals. If all
the men mentioned make the trip
south, it will be the first time in Wol-
jverine athletic history that two All-
American men have been on a spring
training trip, not to mention the fact
of there being four Varsity 'captains
on the same roster.
