Annual Gathering Of Big Ten Repre-
sentatives To Take -Place
1)ec. 3, 4, 5
Michigan will be well represented
at the annual meeting' of Western
Conference athletic directors and
coaches which will be held Dec. 3, 4,
and 5 at the Auditorium hotel, Chi-
cago, with practically all of her Var-
sity coaches present.
Coaches Yost and Wieman will at-
tend the meetings of the athletics di-
rectors, while the other Varsity
coaches will meet intseparate sessions
with the coaches of the other Big Ten
schools. The Michigan coaches who
will attend the meet are as follows:
Mather, basketball; Fisher, 'baseball;
Farrell, track; Mann, swimming;
Keen, wrestling. Coach Wieman will
arrange the golf, tennis, and hockey
The first meeting will be held at 2
o'clock Thursday, whentall the ath-
letic directors will get together in a'
general conference. The directors
will meet again Friday morning to
continue the discussions which may
arise in the Thursday session. All
the wrestling coaches in the Confer-
ence will meet to arrange their sched-
ules at 2:30 o'clock the same after-
At this time a joint meeting of the
high school representatives, the Mis-
souri conference directors, and the
Big Ten directors will be held which
will continue all afternoon and even-
ing. Those attending the meeting will
dine together at a joint dinner Thurs-
day night.
Saturday will be a day filled with
schedule making, the swimming, track,
gymnastic, and fencing coaches ar-
ranging their schedules in the morn-
ing, and the football coaches carding
their next se son's games dur4ng the
afternoon. Although the basketball
schedules for the Conference are al-
ready completed, a meeting of the
basketball coaches will be held some-
time Saturday. Coach Wieman will
probably alsoycomplete the golf, ten-
nis, and hockey schedules, as there is
no specified time set aside for a meet-
ing of these coaches.
It is probable that the way will be
opened for some radical changes at
this meeting as there has been con-;
siderable talk this season of drastic
measures that are needed in the pres-
ent system. Game scheduling and
playing scheduled games under ad-
verse weather conditions will prob-'
ably draw their fair share of atten-
tion. In a letter sent out to the ath-
letic directors of the Big Ten, George
Huff, athetic director of Illinois, an.-
nounces the tentative schedule of the
meeting and also asks each director
to submit topics for discussions. Hee
also adds that Major Griffith, Big Ten
commissioner, has several subjects
which he will bring up at the meet.
Last Wednesday evening, 200 na-
tionally known students of basketball
assembled at the Hotel Astor in New
York city to discuss and clarify the
new rules enacted last spring, which
are to go into offect this season.
The rules committee has made sev-
eral drastic changes in the regula-
tions of the court game, which should
aid considerably in speeding up the
game and putting it on a sounder
The most important change takes
away the 17 foot foul goal zone, while
another removes the obligation for
the center to keep one hand behind
his back in jumping for the ball when
it is put in play. Formerly a double
penalty was inflicted for a foul com-
mitted in the 17 foot zone, but now
the penalty is only inflicted when a
player is fouled while in the act of I

shooting for the basket from any
point on the floor.
Although these -changes are not
very different from the former rul-
ings, they will tend to eliminate the
occasional unfairness which the old
rule of a double foul in the 17 foot
zone allowed.

college basketball team was an-

Northrup To Go
Under Knife
This Morning
Phillip M. Northrup, '28D, holder of
the Conference record in the javelin
throw, and star pole vaulter and
broad jumper on last year's Varsity
track team, will be operated upon for
appendicitis this morning at the Prov-
idence hospital in Detroit.
Northrup has been troubled by his
appendix considerably of late, and it
was decided during the early part of
the week that his condition demand-
ed that several X-rays be taken. The
X-rays were taken on Wednesday, and
then it was decided that an immediate
operation was necessary. Northrup
had planned upon undergoing the
operation during the Christmas holi-
Northrup was one of the outstand-
ing members of the track team last
year, although he wassonly a sopho-
more, entering and usually scoring
points in three events in each meet.
Coach Steve Farrell stated yesterday
that Northrup will be lost to the in-
door track team, at least, and may
also be lost to the outdoor squad for
the first part of the season.
Members of the Ironwood high
school football team, champions of
the northern peninsula, visited Ann
Arbor yesterday upon their return to
Ironwood from Detroit where they de-
cisively defeated Redford high 47 to
0 on Thanksgiving day.
John Cavosie, star of the Ironwood
team, is considered one of the great-
est prep stars developed in the state
and is heralded as "the greatest
star turned out in the upper penin-
sula since the days of the late George
Gipp, Notre Danmre's all-American
football star.
Cavosie is six feet one inch in height;
and weighs 192 pounds. Besides be-
ing a brilliant football player, he has
been a star on the basketball and
baseball teams of the Ironwood high
Cavosie gained most of his fame in
a game against the Menominee high
school when he booted a 55 yard drop
kick from a difficult angle. He aver-
ages more than 45 yards as a punter,
and is a brilliant forward passer.
