THE
TIP-OFF

BERKOWITI TO FIGHT
I N A. A. U. TOURNEY

Whether the eventual tie for Con-
ference basketball honors lies between
Purdue and Indiana, or between Pur-
due, Indiana, and Wisconsin, or be-
tween Purdue and Wisconsin, or fin-
ally, whether or not that tie is event-
ual after all, depends almost entirely
upon the form indicated by Coach
George Veenker's Michigan team in
its remaining pair of games with Wis-
consin'and Indiana.
At any rate the Northwestern quin,
tet, which was one of the possibilities
until settled by the Wolverines, is no
longer any more than a mnere mathe-
matical "possibility." Michigan re-
tains the opportunity to reduce the
Hoosiers and Badgers to the same
eegory.
Iowa, too, retains this opportunity
through a game with the Badgers on
Saturday. The Hawks are also sched-
uled to meet Purdue before the sea-
son is closed.
But in this week's schedule is lo-
cated whatever gauntlet there is for
the championship contenders.
I1hii, Wildcats Play Tonight
Tonight's tilt between the erratic
Illini and the still contending Wild-
cats will decide how Northwestern
can remain in the running. Coach
Lonborg's Northwestern team, with
seven games won and three lost is not
yet definitely out of the race.
On Saturday the feature encounter,
as it was several weeks ago, will be
that between Michigan and Indiana.
If the Hoosiers, defeated by a one-
point margin in their last meeting
with the Wolverines, are successful
in reversing the previous verdict, it
is practically a certainty that they
will at least share the top rung of the
ladder after the final reckoning.
In the other tilt of importance Wis-
consin and Iowa meet at Madison.
Dr. WalterMeanwell'- great defensive
Badger team is favored to repeat its
triumph scored earlier in the 1928
campaign.
Maroons To Finish First
Chicago will be the first squad to
complete the 12-game season when on
Saturday the Maroons oppose Coach
Craig Ruby's Illinois five at Cham-
paign.
Individual scoring records of lead-
ers follow: (All have played in 10
game's.).

TOM HFENEY
Who will have another opportunity to secure a bout with Gene Tunney,
heavyweight champion when he fights Jack Delaney at Madison Square
Garden, New York, tonight. Heeney has fought in only 32 matches, 10 of
which he won via the knockout route, and 16 by decisions. He is an aggressive
fighter.

Varsity Breaks Even With Wisconsin
Iii Final Series Of Big Ten
Competition
SQUAD HAS POOR RECORD
Achieving a form unequalled before
this season, the Michigan hockey sex-
tet drew its unsuccessful campaignj
to a close by holding the second placet
Badgers to a tie in one game and
then handed them a 3 to 1 defeat in
the final Conference game. This la'st
series of games was the on.,' one in
which the Wolverines were able to
break more than even with an adver-
sary.
Coach Eddie Lowrey was placed at
a severe disadvantage when he took
over the reign of the Michigan team
this year. For the greater part of the
time .only three men of previous Var-
sity hockey experience were able to
be with the team.
Imprewed By Addition Of Fisher ,
At the beginning of the second1
semester Coach Lowrey had his team
improved by the addition of Mort
Fisher, a Varsity man of two years
ago. Fisher has played regularly at
center since he joined the squad.
Jones, Maney, and Copeland were the
veterans who formed the backbone of
the organization. Captain Maney went
well at the first and last of the sea-
son, but suffered d slump in the
middle of it. Copeland was very ef-
fective and Jones played a consist-
ently good game at goal tending.
At the defensive positions Coach
Lowrey had to use men who were new
to Conference hockey. Bryant and
Hart took care of those duties regu-
larly for the last. part of the season,
with Waldron, as a substitute. The
pair of regulars played well, Bryant
being a hard checker, and Hart a
fast skater. These two men should
have little trouble next year in turn-
ing back the strongest of opponents.
Shea Injured In Gopher Came
Shea, who started the season at de-
fense, was injured in the first Min-
nesota game and has not be.en in a
game since. His loss was keenly felt
and 'should he return to the squad
next year the Wolverine's defense will
be bolstered.
BOW ING TEAM COMPETES
rIOl)AY
The Michigan bowling team
composed of Boice, Crom'wall,
Resman, Neukom, and Keller1
t will compete in the Western
Conference telegraphic bowling
meet at 4 o'clock today on the

Following their single day of rest
after the gruerling Ohio game, the
Wolverine basketeers resumed prac-
tice yesterday in preparation for the
second game of the season with Indi-
ana Saturday at Bloomington.
Tonight's drill will be the final
practice of the year for Coach
Veenker's charges as they en-
train for Bloomington tomorrow,
and meet Wisconsin Monday night
in the field house in the final en-
counter on the schedule.
In addition to ,giving the Wolverines
a perfect average in their two game
series with the Ohio cagemen, Mon-
day's victory has apparently 'solved
the problem of determining the most
effective lineup.
Against the Buckeyes the Michi-
gait team demonstrated its ability
tc score points almost at will and
although on two occasions the
Scarlet and Gmry siarp-shooters
imperiled the Wolverine Lead,
they never headed the V6enker-
coached outfit.
For the first time this season Capt.
Frank Harrigan flashed the form that
gained him all-Conference honors last
year and led his team in piling up its
12-4 lead early in the game.
Goaded by the boos of its fol-
lowers, the Ohio team found itself
and gradually cut down the Wol-
verine lead until the score stood
21-16 against them at the half.
During the second half Bennie
Oosterbaan started on his scoring
spree, sinking seven baskets to bring
his total up to 41 points for the last
two games and 111 for the season.
Bill Orwig, sophomore star, also
played a spectacular game in his
initial appearance against a
Buckeye team and scored a total
of nine points.
Hinchman, Evans, and Van Heyde,
Buckeye sophomores played well for
the losers, while Geer, who was in-
jected into the game during the clos-
ing minutes sank two long field goals
in as many tries.
Unusually few penalties were

doled out during the progress of
the contest; Ohio being charged
with four and the Wolverines with
half as many.
Rumors from Bloomington, where
Coach Everett Dean is working on a
defense to stop the mighty Ooster-
baan, have it that Wells will be dele-
gated to watch the versatile Michigan
forward, although it seems more prob-
able that McCrackerj, big Hoosier
center, will draw that difficult a'ssign-
ment.
Hoosier state fans will be treat-
ed to a real fight for scoring
honors when Oosterbaan and Mc-
Cracken take the floor, as the
Wolverine leads the Big Ten scor-
ers with a total of 111, while Mc-
Cracken is only four points be-
hlnd.
Coach Veenker is counting heavily
on Bob Chapman's ability to repeat his
performance in the first encounter,
with the Hoosiers, when he had a
slight advantage as far as the tipoff
was concerned.
The Indiana coach is leaving
nothing undone in his preparation
to turn back the Wolverine inva-
sion and thus hold the top rung
in the .Big Ten standings as well
as avenge the 41-40 defeat sus-
tained here earlier in the season
at the hands of the Maize and Blue
cagemen.

CAMPUS SHOW SCHEDULED
Battling for the right to compete
in the National A. A. U. champion-
ships and for a possible berth on the
American Olym-pic boxing team, Wil-
liam Berkowitz, '30, will participate
in the Michigan A. A. U. boxing tour-
nament which starts tonight in De-
troit.
Berkowitz, who is the star boxer
of the Wolverine squad, already
holds the Eastern Michigan middle-
weight title. He is considered by
many as good Olympic material, but
this tournament will do much to test
his mettle. Several others of the
Philbin-coached squad are entered in
the Detroit show, and a good show-
ing by the entire group is expected.
Wesley Sauve, a Detroit product.
and runnerup to Berkowitz in the
Eastern Michigan A. A. U. tourna-
me-nt, is entered in tonight's setto
and will no doubt again m'aet the
Wolverine ace before the, completion
of the tourney. The meet is being
run on the elimination plan. Pre-
liminaries are scheduled for the Ca-
dilla, A. C. tonight, and finals for
the Ol ympia, Detiroit sport center,
Friday.
The first competition in which the
entire boxing squad will take part
will be in the nature of an all-cam-
pus show, which will take place on
March 8, in the field house. All
weights from the flyweight to the
heavyweight classes will be repre-

CHAMPIONS MAY MEET IN
INDIANA-MICHIGAN MATCH
There is a possibility that Confer-
ence wrestling champions will oppose
each other when Michigan encounters
Indiana tomorrow night at Bloomin,(-
ton, as Donahoe, Wolverine 158 pound-
er, has held the Big Tentitle since
1920, while Swain of "1the Hoosier
team captured the honors in 1924 and
1925.
Coach iClifford Keen is undecided,
however, whether to use the veteran
Donahoe in the 158 or light heavy-
weight class in the meet with the
Crimson. He has competed satis-
factorily in both weights thus far'. In
case Coach Keen uses him in the 175
pound classWarren will face Swain.
Swain, who returned to Indiana
after a two year's absence, is rated as
one of the best matmen ever produced
in Conference circles. Among other
honors he hold's a victory over Loca-
baugh, former Oklahoma A and M 158
poundI star. Locabaugh was a meni-
ber of the United States Olympic team
in 1924 and the defeat at the hands of
Swain was the single reverse of his
mat career.
The Hoosier coach has intimated
that he may use Swain in the 145
pound class in order to strengthen his
team to meet the formidable Wolver-
ine outfit.

FROSH WRESTLERS WILL
MEET IN MAT TOURNEY
Members of the 'freshman wrest-
ling squad will be given an oppor-
tunity to prove their merit in an
all-frosh wrestling tournament to be
held during the first week in April.
This tournament, which will end the
season 'for the yearlings, will in,-
elude boti 'the group working in
Waterman gymnasium and the group
at the field house.
It is not intended that results of
the meet will form any basis for the
awarding of numerals to take place
im-mediately afterwards. According to
Coach Soloman the numerals will be
given to the members of the squad
who have shown the most improve-
ment during the season. Attention
and interest will also figure largely
in the awarding of numerals.

ulation of nearly 14,000,000.
