Coach Veenker's Reserves
Start Against Central.
State Quintet


With two different Wolverine Re-
serve teams each slated to play one
half of tonight's encounter, the
Mount Pleasant 'quintet appears to
be in for a busy time when it in-
vades Yost feld housein the open-
Ing game of the 'Junior Varsity
Two "B" teams will represent
Michigan, a five made up of re-
serves from Coach Veeniker's "'A"
Squad being slated to start the tilt
at 7:30 and finish out the first half,
while an entirely different quintet
chosen from Coach Courtwright's
degular "B" squad will take the
floor against the Mt. Pleasant team
after the intermission.
Four of last year's Junior Var-
sity will again be in the lineup
which will ring up the curtain on
the 1928-29 "B". season. Slagle,
Balsamo, Myron, and Cushing all
earned their AMA's on last year's
ieserves, while the fifth member of
the squad, Montague, is a spho-
Juniors Lack Height
Balsamo, who saw action against
ichigan State last Friday, will
start at one forward with Slagle
at the other. Montague will hold
down the center occupied by Ny-
land last season, while Cushing will
be at one guard with Myron as his
running mate. Several other of
the Varsity substitutes may be in-
serted into the lineup during the,
first half.
Coach Courtwright's five will
average muchi less in height than
the Varsity Reserve aggregation,.
but will try to make up the handi-
cap by better teamwork.
With Weinstein pnd Downing at
the forwards, Dougal at center, and
Lytle and Engleman at guards,
Coach Courtwright seems to have
found the fast breaking, smooth
running combination needed to
carry out the passing type of game
the "B" team is being coached in.
Boast Good Pass Attack
The two diminutive forwards,
Weinstein and Dbugal, won theirl
numerals on the 1927-28 yearling
squad, as did Lytle and Dougal,
while Engleman has had experi-
ence on class teams.
In practice the Junior Varsity
quintet has shown a passing at-
tack that has overcome the handi-
cap of size to give both Weinstein
and Downing many short shots onj
fast breaks from the sides. The
value of long tosses has been dis-
counted, and a short passing of-
'fense with Lytle taking the ball
down the floor has been stressed.
Bauer, Den Bleyker, Murphy,
Doliusky, and McAfee are all likely
to be given an opportunity in the

CHICAGO, Dec. 10.-Allan Hol-
man, Ohio State's star quarterback,
as well as Mayes McLain, Iowa's
Cherokee Indian fullback ace, is
apparently through with Big Ten,
While McLain was the only one i
!to be officially declared ineligible
for further competition by the
l faculty committee because of the'
three-year Player rule, it was re-
garded as a foregone conclusion
by the committee and coaches that
Holman, too, would be banished.
The three-year rule, reaffirmed
by the committee during the an-
nual Big Ten sports conclave here
Saturday, limits any one to three
years of college athletic competi-
tion. Holman played a season on
the Parsons college football team,
another with Iowa State and one
at Ohio State. McLain played two
seasons with the Haskell Indians
and one with Iowa.
j L. W. St. John, director of ath-
letics at Ohio State said that in
his opinion Holman would be bn
ned. The Ohio State athletic board
will make the decision, bust if it
should decide in favor of Holman,
but protests are certain.

Indiana To Open New Intramrural
Pool On Feb. 2; Chicago
Is Possible Opponent


Four Conference teams will com-
prise Michigan's dual meet swim-
ming schedule for 1929 as drawn
up by Coach Matt Mann at the
Big Ten coaches' parley in Chi-
cago last week-end, with the pos-
sibility of Chicago as a fifth op-
ponent. Indiana, Minnesota, Wis-
consin, and Northwestern will pro-
vide the opposition for the Maize
and Blue natators this season.
Indiana will come to Ann Arbor
Feb. 2 for the initial Big Ten dual
meet. This will mark the dedica-
tion of the new pool in the Intra-
mural building. Heretofore the
Wolverines have competed in the
Union pool..
Purple Comes HIere
The Wolverines will go to 'Min-
neapolis on Feb. 9 for a meet with
the Gophers. This will continue
the annual rivalry between the
two schools. A meet with Chicdgo
is tentatively scheduled for Feb. 11
on the return trip.
Northwestern will invade the
new pool on March 11 to engage
the Michigan tankmen. This
should provide a spectacular meet,
as the Wildcats possess some o,
the best collegiate swimmers in the
Title Meet At Chicago
The Wolverines will be defend-.
ing their title as'Big Ten cham-
pions in the Conference meet at
Chicago on March 15 and 16. ,For
the second successive year this
meet will be held in a 60-foot pool,
as it is being sponsored by the
University of Chicago.
Two weeks later the national col-
legiate championships will be held
at St. Louis under the auspices o:
Washington university. Michigan
will also be defending its title,
gained last season at Philadelphia,
in this meet.
Water polo games will be played
with all the teams appearing on
