Although the medical student of this
age is rather fully equipped in the'
knowledge of disease and its causes, it
is primarily the aim of the college to
train practitioners rather than medi-
cal scientists, and this requires some-
thing more than a knowledge of
science and facts of disease, asserted

title race by defeating the University
of Illinois 30-26 here tonight in a bat-
tle similar to the Michigan-Illinois
game played in Ann Arbor earlier in
the season.
Coach Mather's men played like
champions tonight, outplaying and out-
witting the Illini at every turn.
The Wolverines had a whirlwind of
speed and used it to good advantage
whenever the Illini showed signs of
weakening. When the Indians threat-

of the game, the 'Michigan used a de-

Illinois had the decided advantage
on the number of shots attempted, but
the majority of the tosses were made
when the men- were off balance or

took 69 shots at the basket while
Michigan attempted only 38.
Oosterbaan was more talked of to-
night than Red Grange was in 1925.
The tall Wolverine was superb on the
defense and a mighty power on the of-
fense, particularly in his work be-
neath the basket. Harrigan was the
high scorer of the contest and the
outstanding man in floor tactics. Har-
rigan caused Illinois no little trouble
with his brilliant dribbling.

Michigan jumped into the lead at
the start of the game, Oosterbaan lead-
ing the way with three goals scored
off the backboard at the end of the
first of the firsthalf, the Wolverines
commanded a 16-9 lead.
After two minutes of play in the
second period, Michigan had increas-
ed its lead to 20 to 9. With Daugher-
ity scoring on long tosses, and Olson,
dimunitive forward, sneaking in short
shots, Illinois gradually gained on the
leaders, coming within three points
of accomplishing its aim. With the
score 27-24, Harrigan took the game
out of the fire by scoring a goal and
a free throw.tDorn dropped in a
short shot for the final score.
