Seven Schools Are Represented
on Mythical Team, Three !
Men From Purdue.
By Edward L. Warner.
Seven Western Conference teams
are represented pn the mythical
all'star eleven as chosen by the
Michigan Daily for 1929, Purdue
garnering the most places with
three of the Boilermakers listed.
Iowa and Northwestern each gainedt
two places on the aggregation,
while Michigan's nominee for Big
Ten honors is Howard Poe, veteran
The task of selecting an all-Con-
ference team is always fraught
with difficulties, due to local pre-
judice for the home team and the
complications involved in choos-
ing the best eleven men out of
more than 150 players in the Big'
Ten. In picking this mythical team,
the writer was handicapped in
having seen only six of the Con-
ference teams in action. However,
the accounts of reliable sport crit-
ics on the other four teams and
their stars were considered, while
the Michigan scouts and members
of the sport staff were consulted in,
order to obtain an unbiased con-
sensus of opinion.
Among the ends, Wesley Fesler
was far and away the best flank-
man in the Big Ten. The sensa-
tional Ohio State star, who was
chosen all-American last year,
again demonstrated his worth on a
mediocre team, crowning his
achievements with a 99-yard run
for a touchdown against North-
western. The other ends were just
about average, with Baker having
a slight edge over Tanner. Bill
Hewitt made a very favorable
showing in his first year of com-
petition, and bids fair to develop
into one of the Big Ten's outstand-
ing wingmen. Capt. Joe Truskowski.
was handicapped, due to being,
shifted from end to a backfield;
berth and then to end again. Had.
he played all season at the flank,
he undoubtedly would have earned
a higher place in the selections.
Red Sleight of Purdue was the
best tackle in the Conference, be-
ing the outstanding lineman in a
strong forward wall. He was in
there on every play, often knifing
through to down the opposing,

With the probability that only
one member of last year's Confer-
ence championship basketball team
will start in the opening game!
against Ohio Wesleyan next Mon-
day night, Coach George VeenkerI
is drilling the squad hard to per-
fect a defense that will even re-
motely approach that of last sea-
son's team.
Captain Bob Chapman, the six-
foot three-inch center, will most
likely be the only regular of last;
year's team in the starting lineup,I
although Kanitz and Lovell, both
substitutes on last season's outfit,
will be available for duty. Joe;
Truskowski, who reported for aJ
light workout yesterday for the
frst time following the recent grid
campaign, will not be ready by
next Wveek, nor will Bill Orwig, the
other forward on the championship
I Ohio Wesleyan will be far from a
set-up for Michigan. The Bishops
seem to have a liking for meeting
and defeating Big Ten teams on
the opening dates of the season.
Last year Coach Dietrick's team,
winners of the Ohio Conference
.championship, swamped Ohio State
33-20, in last season's lid-lifter.;
Wesleyan expects another good
team this winter, and Coach Veen-I
ker is looking forward to a real bat-
tle at the hands of the team from
the B.ckeye state.
Once before has Michigan metk
these same Battling Bishops. On
that occasion the Wolverines were
hard-pressed to emerge on the
long end of a 32-27 count, the close
decision going to the Maize and
Blue only after a final spurt in the
last two minutes.

Nine football men, five of whom
were players on the 1929 Varsii
have signified their intention of
trying for places on Coach Ciford
Keen's mat squad this season.
l With the advent of these men to
the team this afternoon the Wol-
verine roster will be complete and
Keen will start serious prepara-
tion for the first meet of the year
with Princeton on JaiNuary 11.
Strange as it may seem all of
these gridders on the wrestling
squad are not heavyweights or
even light heavies. Ray Parker, one
of the best men on the mat squad
last year and who won a letter at

season expects to compete in the

The great Cagle brought his grid-
iron career to a close in a blaze of}
glory even though his team had to
be content with the small end of
the score. Easily outshining the
other stars in the game, excepting
Elder's ten second sprint, Cagle
displayed that individual brilliance
which won him 'all-American rec-
l ognition last year.
In contrast with last season
when Georgia Tech. had practical-
ly undisputed claim to national
championship honors there are five
major teams who have neither
been beaten nor tied this fall. How-
ever in considering the class of
competition which has been en-'
countered three elevens stand out
in their claim for national recog-
nition, Notre Dame, Purdue and
Admittedly running against the
toughest combination of opponents
Notre Dame came closest of the
three to suffering defeat. The one
point margin which spelt victory
for the Irish over Southern Cali-
fornia and the break which might
have been a touchdown for the
Army instead of Notre Dame were
much too close for comfort. Pur-
