SAMSON WILL SWIM
Wisconsin Athletic authorities in a
wire to Coach Barss yesterday cancell-
ed the hockey games between Michigan
and the Badgers which were to be
played at Madison tonight and tomor-
row due to poor ice. '
It has not yet been decided wheth-
er or not the games with Minnesota
on Monday and Tuesday will be play-
ed, but Coach Barss expects to hear
from the Gopher coach sometime be-
fore Sunday regarding the possibility
of holding the scheduled contests.
Some arrangements may be made by
which Michigan will play Wisconsin
later in the week if the squad jour-
neys northward f;r the Minnesota
The llasketball team left last night
for Urbana where they will meet the
Illini five in one of the most crucial
games of the season tonight.
The Michigan team will face the
Suckers with the same lineup that
started against Wisconsin here Mon-
day.hChambers and Reece willstart
at the forwards, Doyle at center, and
Harrigan and Ginn, guards. Reece(
has completely recovered from a slight
injury suffered earlier in the week(
and should show to, good advantage
against the Conference leaders, as he
has shown marked improvement in
the last three games.
The other men who will accompany.
Coach Mather on the trip and may see
service in tonight's game are Ooster-
baan, Babcock, Gawne, and Schroed-
Coach Robert 0. Zuppke started his
campaign for 1926 championship hon-
ors last week when he issued the first
call for candidates for the Varsity
football squad. More than a 100 men
appeared for the initial spring foot-
ball practice, this number including
the majority of last year's letter men.
Daugherity and Stewart, stars on
the 1925 eleven will probably not re-
(port until the end of the basketball
season, although Kassel, captain-elect
of the football team, and also a mem-
ber of the basketball five, has been
present at the workouts.
Notable among the candidates was
Garland Grange who re-entered
school, this semester and is being
used as a back and end. Peters and
Timm of the freshmen team are two
other candidates of high repute.
The drills through which Coach
Zuppke is sending his men consistI
mainly of fundamental work, with
some signal drill and forward pass I
formations interspersed. The work-
outs will emphasize these features
throughout the spring football sea-!
Football numerals will no doubt be
awarded to all deserving candidates
as this has been the policy in the past.
Last year 30 numerals were given out
and four Varsity men, Grable Mar-
riner, Reitsch and D'Ambrosio who.
won their varsity letters in the fall

MILE RELAY TO FEATURE
CHAMPAIGN, Feb. 25.-In the Illi-
nois relays, tomorrow night, Coach
Gill's Illinois track team hold highi
hopes of regaining the prestige they
lost a year ago by failing to win a
single first place.
White, Stellner, Fairfield, and Mc-
! Elwee can do 18:20 easily in the four
mile relay and hopes are held for a
victory in this event. Michigan will
be on hand with a strong four mile
aggregation and hopes to repeat her
victory of last year which, broke Illi-
nois'string of four straight wins.
1The one mile relay will be the fea-
ture of the evening with keen com-
petition predicted and the possibility
of a new mark being hung up. Al-
though Iowa, Kansas, and Michigan
are the ruling favorites, the Illini led
by Mehock and Schock, expect to be'
near the top.
Half mile material seems to be
scarce this year in the Big Ten
schools and the two mile relay should
be fought out by Missouri Valley en-'
tries. Chicago may break in the scor-
ing here but the favorites are Nebras-
ka and Missouri.
Special interest is attached to indi-
vidual events with several records in
danger. Kuck, the Kansas Teachers'
star shot putter, is expected to do
better than 49 feet, while Guthrie of
Ohio State will have an interesting
duel in hurdles with Werner of Illi-

Tli-e all-campus billiard and

started Tuesday at the Union. is
slowly coming to a climax. One
of the first victories to be record-
ed was that of Harold over Clay-
IIton in the 1)001 comp, titioiI.
All contestants are .rcmindod
that all the matches that take
place in the billiard room must
be played by 11 o'clock tonight,
while the qualifying lines in both

IN HANDBALL DUUBLES1
Bewildering their opponents by1
means of clever placements and ter-
rific drives, the doubles handball com-
bination, composed of the singles1
finalists, Irwin Olian, '27, and James
J. Reilly, '27D, won the all-campus
championship by defeating the Lang-

sionally, but never threatened serious-
ly enough to cause any doubt as to
the final outcome.

SIB MA NU BEATSI
With Brown and Hanlock playing
stellar roles, Sigma Nu won the class
A championship %f its league by de-
feating Phi Sigma Kappa, last year's
winners, 14 to 13, Wednesday night.
The one-point advantage of the
Sigma Nu netters does not indicate
the superiority of the winners, shown
by them in the close contest. Time
and time again the victors advanced
past the strong defense of the Phi
Sigma Kappa only to miss opportuni-
ties to score.
A five-minute over time period was
necessary to decide the Alpha Rho
Chi-Delta Rho contest, which finally
was won by the Alpha Rho Chi ag-
gregation, 18 to 16.
In a rather slow and uninteresting
game, Sigma Alpha Mu overwhelmed
Phi Beta Delta, 22 to 5. The winners,
unable to set their scoring machine
in motion in the first session, com-
pletely bewildered their slower op-
ponents in the secondl period.
Phi Gamma Delta bested Alpha Tau
Omega, 17 to 9, in a nip and tuck af-
fair. Emery and Goodrich lead the
winners, while Parker and Timber-
lick were the chief point-getters for

1600 Compete On
Intramural basketball has taken
the largest stride since its introduc-
tion at this school during the current
season, according to figures released
by the intramural office.
Although none of the campus tour-
naments have been completed, 171
teams, totaling 1600 players, have par-
ticipated in 1026 games.
Class A fraternity basketball takes
the lead for entries with 70 teams
on the schedule. The qualifying
round of this tourney has been prac-
tically completed and 12 teams remain
to enter the second round.
Second on the list is the class B
fraternity schedule, with 42 teams
ready to enter the qualifying round.
The other tournaments and the
number of teams entered are: class,
20; independent, 10; society, 10;

Nighthawks 17, Chicago Five 14; Arcs

Coach Farrell's trackmen will de- a
part tonight for Urbana and the Il
linois relays via bus to Milan and
from there to'Danville on the Wabash
line, from which city they will com-
plete their trip to Urbana via trolley.
Preliminaries in all events will be
held Saturday afternoon and the fin-I
als that night. Michigan is not fav-'
ored to place especially well in the
meet, Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin all
boastinlg strong teams.
The Varsity swimming team will
leave tonight at 11:41 o'clock for
Evanston where they will meet North-
western tomorrow in its hardest swim-
ming'meet of the year.
The men who will compete against
Northwestern are Capt. Jack Gow,
Darnall, Samson, Batter, Whittingham,
Short, Dunnakin, R. Halsted, J. Hal-
sted, Starrett, Harrison, and Mayer.
The Michigan team was strengthen-
ed just prior to its departure by the
return of Samson who has been out
two weeks with a broken ear drum. It
is probable that he will play water
polo against the Wildcats in addition
to entering the quarter mile race, as
a victory in polo tomorrow assures
the Wolverines of either the title or
-a tie for it in this sport.
Tomorrow's meet will serve Coach
Mann greatly in choosing his med-
ley relay team for the Conference race,
as he is at present undecided as. to
whether to use Shorr or Whittingham
in the breast stroke, and must choose
between the Halsted brothers and
Batter in the back stroke. Jack Gow
probably will swim as anchor man in
this race tomorrow and in the Con-
Coach Keen's wrestling proteges who'
won their first Big Ten meet since
wrestling became a recognized sport
here against Northwestern last Sat-
urday will journey to East Lansing
to engage the State grapplers in a
dual meet Saturday with Michigan
holding a slight advantage on paper
over the M. S. C. men.
The squad will be at its fully
strength against the State squad as1
Captain Baker and Solomon, both of
whom have been out all week with
sickness, have recovered sufficiently
to be used in the Lansing meet.

Changes To Track'
IOWA CITY, Ia., Feb. 25.-Ted
Swenson was a valuable enough bas-1
ketball sub to make all the road trips
with the University of Iowa squad.
But he decided that he could be of
more service to the university as a
high jumper on the track team so
recently he deserted the cagesqa.
