HARRIGAN FORGED OUT
Captain Chambers Shifted To Stand-

With the first game of the season
with Michigan State college here, De-
cember 11, only a week off, Qoach
Edwin J. Mather is far from satisfied'
with the condition of Michigan's
basketball team which shared Big Ten
honors last year with Iowa, Indiana
and Purdue, all of which are said toj
be represented by promising squads
Frank Harrigan, letter man and
first choice fdr the running guard po-
sition on this year's quintet, was forc-
ed to leave the practice Thursday
night with an attack of pleurisy. Al-
though this will probably not keep
him out of the opening game, it will
seriously impair the effectiveness of
team play. Rasnick, also a letter mlan
of last year's squad, was unable to re-
port for practice until Thursday, and
as yet is in no condition for actual
Another difficulty which has con-
fr~nted Coach Mather has been the
inability to get the entire squad tb-

of the football season and the report

work is expected to improve. Nyland,1
Truskowski, Babcock and Greenwald
have already reported for practice and
Squier is expected out in a-few days.l
Benny Oosterbaan, Wolverine all-'
around star, has attended only one or
two workouts so far. Nyland is a de-I
pendable man and works well under,
fire, but is pnly now rounding into
shape for scrihumage.1
The team is in nowhere near finali
form, according to Coach Mather, but
has bleen lining up as follows: Cap-I
tain Chambers at standing- guard,(
Harrigan at running guard, McCoy att
center; and Martin and Barley at for-
wards. McCoy is a sophomore with'
a deadly eye for the basket but lack-
ing in eXperience. For this reason,
Harrigan has worked at center part1
of the time - while Clemens, an'ther
sophomore, has been fitting in at the1
ruln~ing guard post. Truskowski asi
considered another good prospect for'

In the selections, made from all the
teams throughout the country, 18 col-

intercollegiate record in all three +fI
these. Other exceptional men listud
are Wychoff and Allen, Navy; O'Con-

Illinois; Carter and Hill, Minnesota.
O'Connor was selected as' the bet

Capt. Eddie Chambers has been
shifted from forward to standing

Whittle is another man of promise.
Team play, such as there has beea,
has been extremely spotted, according,
to Coach Mather. \One day the team'
goes like a first-class quintet and the
next time it works like a combination

their "basket eyes," however, and are
