Nyland Is Expected To Substitute For
Ooserbliin 1*ring Absence Of
Veteran Forward
Indication as to what players will
start against Michigan State college
on Saturday was made yesterday after-
noon when Coach Edwin J. Mather
picked Harrigan, McCoy, Nyland,
Raber, and Kanitz to represent the
Blues in the daily scrimmage against
the Reds at the field house. ,
The Red team lineup included Slagle
and Gawne at the forward positions,
Schroeder at center, and .Rose and
Daniels at the guards. These men
are also expected to be injected into
the lineup before the battle on Satur-
day with Michigan State is ended.
In the 30-minute scrimmage yester-
day, the Blues, by virtue of the ac-
curate shooting of Kanitz and Ny-
land, were winners over the Red quin-
tet, 23 to 18. Slagle and Gawne, who
were at the forward posts, each con-
tribute< three field goals tp their
team's total.
Work Appears Ragged.
While the game with Michigan State
is considered in the nature of a prac-
tice tilt, the Michigan squad will have
to polish off both defensive and offen-
sive plays in order 'to be assured of a
victory in the opening contest of the
season.
The general floor work of the two
teams in yesterdays scrimmage was
well executed, but both fives proved
ineffective when near or under the
basket, missing scoring opportunities
and failing to recover rebounds suc-
cessfully.
Throughout the session Coach Math-.
er interposed frequently to call the at-
tention of the players to retrieve the
rebounds and to break quickly when
the all was,, recovered.
Harrigan, hub of the Blues' passing,
carried the ball down the floor suc-
cessfully time after time, and gave an
ominous indication of what the Michi-
gan State defense will have to cope
with in the contest Saturday.
McCoy Look Impressive.
McCoy, who is expected to start at
center against the Spartans, managed
to take the tip-off often from his op-
ponent, Schroeder, and thentperformed
creditably when dropping to a guard
position, intercepting numerous Red
passes.
In Il-, second scrimmage that
followed, Oosterbaan replaced Nyland
for the only substitution for the Blues,
while a whole new team took the floor
composed of Walsh, Orwig, Hanna,
Magram, and Myron.
QUINCY-Indianapolis club, of the
American association has purchased
the Quincy club of the Tiree-I league.
SHREVEPORT-Georgia university
has refused to accept the post-season
challenge of Centenary college.

TOURENEY IS POSTPONED)
Because several of the pros-
pective entrants in the annual
all-campus wrestling champion-
s h ; p tournament, originally
scheduled to take place tomor-
row and Saturday, are suffer-
ing from a skin -infection, it has
been necessary to postpone the
title event until the week end fol-
lowing the Christmas recess.
The nature of the infection is
such that it would be impossible
for the men who are suffering
from it to compete without en-
dangering the other contestants,
so Coach Clifford Keen has de-
cided to hold the meet on the
later date, January 6 and 7.

earling Tryouts
Drill For Berths
Ong Court QuIntet

Candidates for the freshman basket-
ball team are working out five timnes
a week on the field house couxt,
whence they have transferred their
activities from Waterman gymnasium.
Coach Ray Fisher has cut the squad to
27 men so as to give the candidates an
opportunity to receive more indivdial
attention from the coaches.
The size. of the players on the sqmad
is smaller than in recent years, ac-
cording to Coach Fisher, and it is
evident that there is a dearth of six-
footers among the yearling court can-
didates.
Coach Fisher is being assisted by
several students of physical educa-
tion. Jack Blott will also join. the
coaching staff when he returns to Ann
Arbor. Fundamentals are occupying
the attention of the players at present,
they being given a thorough grounding
in the rudiments of the cage game.
The freshmen are practicing two
afternoons and three evenings a week
in order not to conflict with the Varf-
sity team. The practice periods are
Monday and Thursday afternoons, and
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
nights.

INTERNATIONAL TENNI8
Tilden, Lott, Hennessey Are Rated
Second, Seventh, Eighth In
Respective Order
COCHET IS JUDGED THIRD
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Dec. 7.-The rise of
the French tennis star of 1927 is re-
flected in the annual classification of
the "world's first 10" by A. Wallace
Myers, British tennis expert, which ap-
pears in the current official bulletin
of the U.S. Lawn Tennis association.
Rene Lasocte's four decisive vic-
tories over William Tilden II place the
French ace at the head of the ranking
10, but the dethroned king of inter-
national tennisdom is rated second
over Henri Cochet on the strength of
match victories at Cochet's expense in
New York and Paris and near victory
at Wimbledon.
Jean Borotra, fourth on the list, and
Jaques Brugnon, ninth, complete the
French roster that numerically equals
an American representation marked
by the absense of "Little Bill" John-
son and by the arrival of two youthful'
recruits, George Lott, and John Hen-
nessey.
The remaining ranking follows:
Alonso (Spain) fifth; Hunter (U.S.)
sixth; Lott (U.S.) . seventh; Hennes-
sey (U.S.) eighth; Brugnon, (France)
ninth; Kozeluh (Czech) tenth.
Youth swept in to the women's rank-
ing with the return of Helen Wills to
the head of the list and the inclu-
sion of Betty Nuthall, England, and
Esther Heine, South Africa, both of
whom are under 20 years of age.
First ten in order follow: Miss
Helen Wills (U.S.); Ille. Alzarec
(Spain); Miss Ryan (U.S.); Mrs. Mal-
lory (U.S.); Mrs. Godfree (England);
Miss Nuthall (England) ; Miss Heiae
(South Africa); Miss Fry (England);
Mlle. Bowman (Holland); Mrs. Chapin
(U.S.).

INTRAMURAL DEPARTMENT ITEMS

ticipation this year in intramural
basketball, there is still time for in-
dependent fives to sign up for com-
petition in the championship meet.
As many groups as possible are asked
to sign up at the intramural office be-
fore the Christmas vacation.
All entries in the interfraternity
group have been received at the intra-

mural office. There are two morej
teams than were registered last year,
which included 72 fraternity groups.
Six freshmen quintets are scheduled
to play off for freshmen representa-
tion in the interclass competition meet.
These six teams mark the Union
group and the winner will be allowed
to represent the freshmen class in
the final tournament.
