that his men are mastering the art of
basket-shooting, of which they had
only a smattering of knowledge last
winter, Coach Sam Barry is now

his University of Iowa five in prepa-

the Wabash game here Monday and
the tilt with Notre Dame on the home1
court, Dec. 20.
Although the calibre of the opposi-
tion was not especially high, the Iowa
squad executed plays with good early-
season precision and looped baskets
from all angles. Coach Barry twice
benched his entire team and sent in
the seconds to carry the battle.

Tiger Outfielder
Aids In Upholding
Batting Records
. """lleini"Manush, slu;gin-
center fielder of the Detroit Tigers is
the sixteenth Detroit player to lead
the American league batters in the
last 20 seasons. His average for 1926
was .377, as compared with his former
averages of .334, .289..303 for the
years 1923, 1924, and 1925 respectively.
The official batting records of the
American league show that the De
troit monopoly of batting honors be-
gan in 1907 when the immortal Ty
Cobb captured first honors and re-
tained them with the exception of one
year until 1919.
George Sisler held the place of
honor in 1920 and 1922, Tris Speaker
in 1916, and Babe Ruth in 1924. These
four players have been the only ones
to encroach upon the Tigers' brilliant
record.. Barry Heilmann won the
laurels in 1921, 1923, and 1925, and
Manush in 1926.
Two other Detroit outfielders, Ieil-
mann and Fothergill, shared honors
with Manush by finishing the season

leading hitters.

then, 11 consecutive battles have gone
to the Hawkeyes. Seven of these were
with Big Ten teams.

Each, man picked for a position on
any of the teams has been awarded
two points for each selection, with
the single exception that an award of
only one point was given to a man for
a place;on his own college paper. In
addition to The Daily, the papers that
named all-star teams were the Wis-
consin Daily Cardinal, Daily Illini,
Daily Jowan, Minnesota Daily, and
Chicago .paily Maroon.
Four Unanimously Selected
Only four men polled a perfect vote,
Oosterbaan, Wolverine end; Hess,
Ohio guard; Friedman, Wolverine
quarterback, and Joesting, Minnesota
fullback, being unanimously selected.
Under the system adopted Hess was
theeonly man able to receive 12 votes,
since the Ohio State Lantern did not
submit an eleven for consideration.
An added point of interest is. that this
Ohio star was the only one of the four
unanimous choices who was not named
for the first team on Grantland Rice's
"official" all-American.
Despite the fact that Michigan car-
ried off the honor of placing two
unanimous selections, Coach Wilce's
Ohio team came in for its share of
honors by placing three men on the
eleven, while the Wolverines placed
two, Minnesota two, and Illinois two,
and Northwestern and Iowa each had
one man named.
Five of the men named for this all-
Conference team were placed on Rice's
first team, while it is interesting to
note that Shively, Illinois guard, al-

lected for one team. None of the last'
three were named for the team sub-
mitted by their own papers.
Reitsch Outstanding Center
Reitsch, Illinois, was the outstand-
ing center of the season in the Big
Ten and was able to poll seven votes,
while Klein, Ohio, earned two points,
and Rouse, Chicago, was named for
the Daily Maroon.
The backfield did not present much
of problem, only three other men be-
ing mentioned, and they were picked
for only one team each. Friedman,
Michigan, and Joesting, Minnesota,
however, were the only men to be!
selected on all the teams, while Baker,
an "official" all-American, was named
on all except the Iowa Daily, who
named Gustafson, another Purple star,

Oosterbaan was chosen by Grantland
Rice for the "official" all-American
team this year, being selected for the
second consecutive time.
In his last performance of the yeas,
the Michigan star proved his ability
to follow the ball when he scooped
up a fumble by a Minnesota back and
raced 60 yards to a touchdown, thun
paving the way to a Wolverine victoiy.
