competent judges are on the other side, but, right or w
we cannot drop the view that Mr. Joe Truskowski of Mic
belongs on any all-Conference basketball team.
So far we have seen four more or less authoritativeE
tions, two by ranking press associations and two by baskE
officials who officiated two or three times a week througl
season and saw a great deal of basketball. None of
selections ranked Truskowski on either the first or sf
teams, which shows just how wrong we can be, for we sl
have placed him on the first team.
Not by a spectacular style, for he did not have that

margin. Then Truskowski was sent into the game a:

He steadied the Wolverines. He was always clear to re
a pass and always in, a position to deliver a pass or to

effectually and he was a genius for getting a great deal:
with* very little effort.
It was clear that Michigan had just an ordinary

basketball player.
It is just as well to remember that Michigan lost two g

It was easy to see by his appearance and action o
basketball floor that he was a natural athlete and not a
man to arouse. He looked like a football player and
experts have said that he was a football player during1
games when Michigan remembered how to win through
