Maize and Blue to Clash With
Pennsylvania in Next
Court Battle.
Even though his team had little
trouble in running over Ohio in the
season opener, Coach Veenker stat-
ed that he was poorly satisfied with
the ixhibition of basketball and
that the Wolverines would need a
great deal of polishing before they
would be title contenders. With this
end in mind he expects to put the
cagers through a stiff program of
individual drill for the rest of the'
week before entraining for Phila-
delphia Friday.
Ragged passing and pooi' ball
handling, interspersed by moments!
of real promise was Coach Veen-
ker's impression of the game, and
last night he started in his cam-
paign to make the whole 40 min-
utes play resemble those few plays.
Admitting that he may be able to
work his forward line into a dan-
gerous scoring threat Veenker feels
that the opponents will make more
baskets this year than last due to.
the loss of McCoy and Rose.

Contrary to the usual water polo
game, Big Ten rules will not pre-
vail. The faculty are accustomed
to playing a degenerated form of

swimmers will meet them on this
basis. In "rough neck" polo -bran
and endurance rather than skill
are the deciding factors. Rules are
non-existent -with the exception
that a,,player cannot hold one of
ithe opposition under water for
more than three minutes.
Maiiistays of the faculty team
include the, scoring com~bination of
Preston, James of the geography do-

also of the engineering college. The

'The game this Saturday will give

season with .ar19-18 decision over
St. Joseph College to their credit.
With Captain Bob Chapman pre-
forming at guard the way he did
against Wesleyan and the forward
line scoring points, Veenker's chief
desire is to find a flashy running
guard. Frank Lovell, while playing
a steady game, lacks the brilliance
and scoring ability which the Mich-
igan coach likes in a running guard.

Last night Veenker did not order
a scrimmage session but devoted
the entire period to individual drill

Of the sophomores, Henry Weiss
and Roy Hudson, football star,,
showed the most potential possi-
bilities with Weiss establishing
himself as one of the fastest men
on the squad. Joe Truskowski ac-
cording to Coach Veenker traveled-
faster against Wesleyan than he
did all last year, although his run-
ning mate, Orwig, seemed unable to'
keep his hands on the ball. Other
sophomores to break in the lineup
were Daniels, Ricketts, Jennett,1

Norman Daniels, another man
serving his first year on the cage
squad, while not taking part in
the scoring, paved the way for sev-
eral shots made by his team-mates,
One play in particular gave prom-
ise for Daniel's future when -he
dribbled down the floor closely
pressed by one guard and just un-
der the basket instead of trying for
the points himself passed to Weiss
coming in.
Bill Orwig did not appear to
be up to the form which he
displayed most of the time last
season, not scoring any points,
but his fast floor game showedI
that he has not forgotten how
to play basketball. The rangy
Wolverine forward was one of

Urtgn te lure game,to
guard, and in that position
showed that he had the diffi-
cult knack of the job. In one
instance he bloeked off an al-
most sure score by stopping
two men at once as they came

One of the hardest schedules inl
years and what appears at present!
to be one of the weakest teams in
years is the combination facing
Coach Steve Farrell during the
coming season which is to be his
last as mentor of a Wolverine track
team. Five dual meets, two indoors
and three outdoors, are included in
the 1930 track schedule giving the
Michigan trackmen the toughest
season in point of number of meets
since 1923.
The prospects for the success of
the 1930 track team look most
gloomy in respect to the reserve
material coming up from last
year's freshman squad. Three high!
jumpers and a pole vaulter who as
freshmen were better than the Var-
sity will be among those absent this
year due to scholastic difficultiesI
and transfers.
On the other hand Michigan
should possess plenty of power inI
the dashes and a middle distance
and perhaps in the two mile event
and part of the weight events. Tol-
an should spell disaster to any-!
thing the Wolverines are likely to
meet in any of their dual meets
not to mention the Conference and
other big meets. Murray is another
man who should prove valuable to
Coach Farrell in the dashes.
The Seymour twins, whose per-!
formance in the. 440 last season
gained many points for the Wol-
verines, will be back again this
year and will provide the main i
strength of the Michigan team in
this event. An array of material
including Austin, Wolf, Fitzgibbons,
Kennedy, and Benson will give
