Coach Mather Declines Invitation To
Play On Pacific Coast IDuring
Christmas Vacation
fACE M. S. C. ON SATURDAY
Varsity basketball candidates re-
linquished the field house court to
the freshman asp'rants yesterday aft-
ernoon, but Coach "Skipper" Mather's
Wolverine hopes came right back last
right for further practice in prepara-
tion for the opening tilt of the 1927-
28 season, scheduled for Saturday
night with Michigan State furnishing
the opposition.
Although invited to journey to the
Pacific coast during the Christma va-
cation interval, Coach Mather declin-
ed the proposal as the final schedule
now calls for a trip to other parts at
that time, 17 contests in all now be-
ing listed.
With the signing of 'contracts for
games here against the Bradley and
Coe quintets on Jan. 3 and Feb. 6, re-
spectively, the season's program is
now complete.
Both Bradley and Coe have power-
ful quintets and should offer the W4-
verine netters a hard tussle when
they invade Yost field house. Bradley
is an entirely new name on the list
of schools competing against Michi-
gan in athletics, while Coe college has
already met a Michigan representa-
tive team.
Following Saturday's game witlh,
S'tate, Pittsburgh invades Ann Arbo
on the following Thursday, after
which the Wolverines journey fo Phil-
adelphia to encounter the strong Penn
squad on Dec. 21. After the Bradley
tilt on Jan. 3, Michigan opens the
Conference" campaign against North-. -

Wolverine 49-20 Victory Over Orange
Closer Than Score Of Meet
Indicates
CAPT. DARNALL IS STAR
Michigan's 49-20 victory over Syra-
cuse in a dual swimming meet at the
Buffalo A. C. last Saturday night wast
closer than the score indicates. Abilif,"
to win the two relays and take sec-
onds and thirds aided. the Wolverines
materially in their victory, as in the
individual events the Orange swim-
mers annexed two firsts to Michigan's
three, the other event being a tie.
Capt. Bob Darnall led the Maize and
Blue team in victory, scoring 10
points by capturing the 50 and 100
yard free style, besides being a mem-
ber of the 200 yard relay quartet. His
time in the 50 yard event was :25.2,
while he covered 100 yards in :55.
Seager of Michigan captured second
in the latter event, while Mergott of
Syracuse was third.
Halstead of Michigan and Cermak
of Syracuse swam a dead heat in the
200 yard breast stroke in the rather
slow time of 2:55. Hughes of Michi-
gan was third.
Orange Leader Places First
Capt. Morse of the Orange barely
touched out Spindle of Michigan in
150 yard* back stroke to take Irst
place. Chaffee oftthe Wolverines fin-
ished third. The time was 1:49.
Cannon annexed the other Syracuse
first place when he swam in the 440
yard free style, a fast race to beat
Wagner and Ault of Michigan. His
time was 5:22, remarkably good for
the distance.
Two sophomore divers, Walaitis and
Rosenberg, displayed good form inthe
fancyddiving event, finishing first and
second, respectively. DeFronzo ,of
Syracuse took third.
Walaitis, Hosmer, Seager, and Dar-
nall composed the winning 200 yard
relay team, while Spindle, Hughes,
and Hosmer were the members of the
victorious medley relay trio.

year. Andrews, however, is too small
to play a full game, and neither for-
ward carries any surplus weight.
It is not at all likely that both
Hotchkiss and Nelson. will be often
used at the same time on the defense.
Both are suited to play the floor and
will have to be teamed with a tall,
heavy defensive player.

HOOSIER QUINTET DRILLS
FOR GAME WITH FRANKLIN
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Dec. 5.-Final
polish will be put on the Indiana Uni-
versity basketball squad within the
next few days for the opening game
of the basketball season here Saturday
night when Franklin College invades
Bloomington. Coach Everett S. Dean
has plenty to worry about with only
three regulars from last year's team
available. Most of the material is of
untried quality and inexperienced.
Art Beckner, Muncie, will be eligible
for only four Big Ten games. He will
graduate in January. With his leav-
ing, Coach Dean will have another
problem in selecting his successor.
Indiana plays every team in the
Conference this year but Wisconsin,
Minnesota and Northwestern. The
chart is clearly the toughest Indiana
tas ever faced in one season of basket-
ball. If Coach Dean had a squad of
veterans it Would be quite another
tory but with his men being unfamiliar
with Big Ten playing, it is a mighty
task to handle.
Franklin will be here in full force in
an attempt to score a victory over a
Western Conference team. The Griz
Wagner machine has been a shining
light in Hoosier bosketball for several
seasons. Indications are that he will
give Dean's quintet a battle every inch
of the way.

Coach Clifford Keen Has Completed
Big Ten Schedule But Fails To
Book Practice Meets.
MAY MEET IOWA TEACHERS
Although Coach Clifford Keen, Var-
sity wrestling mentor, was successful
in completing the Wolverine's Con-
ference mat schedule for 1927-28, the
preliminary meets, with the single ex-
ception of the engagement with Michi-
gan State college Feb. 4 at the field
house, have not been definitely ar-
ranged.
The Wolverine coach is not very
well satisfied with the present sched,
ule because of the fact that the sea-
son will necessarly begin considerably]
later than usual. He would have pre-
ferred to begin the regular season
around Jan. 7 and continue through
February.
Negotiations Fail.
Attempts were made by Coach Keen
to schedule a preliminary meet with
one of the Big Ten schools in the
other section of the Conference proved
unsuccessful as none of the other
coaches were willing to meet a team
l as strong as Michigan early in the
season.
Under the present arrangement hel
Wolverine mat men have no definite
t engagement until Feb. 4 when Michi-
gan State college will invade Ann
Arbor. All four of the regular Con-
ference meets will occur after the
meeting with the Spartans.
Negotiations are now under way for
a practice meet with Iowa State
Teachers college, one of the strong-
est teams in the Middle West, Jan.
10 at Ames, Ia. If the Wolverines are
scheduled to meet the Missouri valley
team, it is possible that the Western
trip will also include an engagement
with the Cornell college at Mt. Vern-
on, Ia. The Cornell college team is
coached by Dick Barker, former Michi-
gan mentor.
May Invade Ohio University.
In case it is impossible to complete
arrangements for a meet with Iowa
State, the Wolverine team will prob-
ably invade Athens for a practice meet
with Ohio university on the same date.
It is almost a certainty that West
Virginia will meet the Michigan mat-
men Jan. 21 in the first home engage-
ment of the season.
Michigan will meet Ohio State Feb.
11 at Columbus in the first Big Ten
meet of the season. Northwestern will
come here Feb. 18 and Purdue will be
the Wolverines second home opponent
Feb. 25. The team will conclude its
dual meet schedule with Indiana,
March 3 away from home.

University of Illinois has confided to
Western conference coaches here.
The upheaval will come, he said,
with the announcement of the find.
ings ofthe Carnegie foundation, now
investigating conditions under which
athletic departments of various big
schools operate.
Huff's warning, voiced at a meet-
ing of coaches, was supported by
President David Kinley of the Uni-
versity of Illinois, who detailed the
evils of which college athletics, es-
pecially football, are susceptible.
Commercialism, high salaries to
coaches, and over-excitement, in his
opinion, are over emphasized, but
drinking, before, after and during the
games, was termed unfortunate, and
he urged that alumni of all schools
undertake the abolition of the prac-
tice.
Dr. Kinley said he understands the

without furnishing names of offend-

"I favor naming of all dates, places,
and concealing nothing. If there is
anything wrong at Illinois, we surely
want to clean house," Dr. Kinley said.
Director Huff said the question of
purity in the Western conference ath-
letics was discussed at last week's
meeting of coaches and directors and
an agreement was reached to ex-
change information and determine
facts in any rumors.
