Number Of Aspirants For 1924 Bas-'
ketball Team Reduced To 21 As
Opening Of Season Approaches
Coach Mather made another cut in
his basketball squad last night, reduc-
ing the number of men, left to 21 and
will begin actual preparation for the
Christmas trip at once.
Less than two weeks remain before
the opening of the season with the
University of Cincinnati, at Cincin-
nati, on Dec. 21, and Coach Mather I
will work his men this week with that
game in view.
Leaving Cincinnati, the team will
move on to Louisville, Kentucky,
where they will engage the Louisville
Y. M. H. A. five on Dec. 22. TheI
players will return to their homes
after this game, and report again with,
the tesuming of school after the holi-
day period. Nine men will make the
two game trip. .
The first contest after the opening
of school will be with the Notre Dame
quintet, on Jan. 6, at South Bend,
Illinois will be met here in the first
Conference game of the season, on
Jan. 14.
George Haggerty, last season's
speedy forward, will hold down one
of the forward jobs, with Henderson,,
a substitute last year, probably pair-
ing with Haggerty. Cherry, of 'last
year's Freshman team, is pressing
Henderson for his berth.
McWood, substitute center last sea-
son, and Emery, another sub, are
battling it out for the pivot position
with the former having the edge at i
present. Doyle, big sophomore guard
and center, is also a likely man for
this position.
Captain Birks, and Kipke, who re-
ported for the first time last night,
will hold down the two guard posi-
tions, with Landre, Deng and Martin

Several close finishes and some new

the features of the preliminaries of

yesterday afternoon at the Y. M. C. A.

four navigators into the finals.

event on the program, proved to be
a thriller and resulted in tie times

artist in the league to turn in an av-
erage of less than three earned runs

years, turned in 26 victories, topping
the league in this respect.

Phi Kappa Sigma, both covering the
distance in 20 seconds flat.
Sampson again displayed his ability
in the next event, the 220 yard free
style, placing second to W. Kerr, BetaI
Theta Pi, who was caught at 3.09.
Getting away to a two yard lead in
the 40 yard back stroke, W. Kerr was
Ieasily the best seen in the water, com-
ing home in 26.2 seconds. Second
place resulted in a close finish be-
tween Wittingham, Theta Chi, and K.

were several seconds behind the best
In the 100 yard free style Sampson,
t Phi Kappa Sigma, bested Gow, Beta
Theta Pi by a margin of 2 1-5 seconds,
butt the latter was not forced to ex-
tend himself in his heat and better
time will be expected of him when
- these close rivals meet tomorrow af-
ternoon in the finals.
| Yerkes, Delta Upsilon, practically
i cinched first place in the plunge in
his first attempt, making 56 feet, 6
inches, before he was forced to quit.
His nearest rivals in the finals will be
Haidle, Alpha Chi Rho, and Siedman,


Kappa Nu, who are about on a par.
For the second Wittingham, Theta
Chi, won the 60 yard back stroke,
making the distance five seconds fast-
er than nearest opponent.
On the basis of the results of the
preliminaries it is almost safe to say
that Beta Theta Pi will be a winner
for the third time, although Phi Kap-
pa Sigma and Theta Chi may cut
their lead in some of the events, as
Sampson of the former is about equal
to Gow in the events in which they
are scheduled to meet and Wittingham
'is certain of one first place. Although
not showing so well in the meet yes-
terday afternoon, close competition
from Delta Upsilon can be expected
as they still have Seagears, the frat-
ernity fancy diving champion, who
will be good for five markers. In the
relay Beta Theta Pi should have no
trouble in garnering the initial place.

the finals at 3 o'clock tomorrow after-
