Wolverines, Gophers,
and Bucks End in Tie
In the last game of the West-
ern Conference basketball sea-
son last night, Minnesota de-
feated Ohio State, 31-24, to climb
into a tic with Michigan and
Purdue for second place in the
Big Ten standings. This win
gives the Gophers eight victor-
ies and four losses for a percent-
age of .666.
Illinos, after getting off on the
wrong foot by losing five games
in a row, landed in the first
division with seven victories
straight during the last half of
the season to take fifth place.
Indiana holds sway in sixth
place, with Chicago and Wiscon-
sin tied at .333 for seventh.
Trailing the pack are Ohio
State and Iowa, the two punch-
ing bags for the Conference this
year. Ohio won three out of 12
games, while Iowa could mark
but two on the win side of their

First Year Cag_.
Nineteen freshman basketball
players will receive numeral awards
for their particiption in yearling
cage practice this year, Coach Fish-
er announced last night.
Although the squad contains no
stars there are five or six men who
may develop into Varsity material.
Emanuel Fishman, Fred Petoskey,
and Fred Ratterman seem to have
the edge on the other candidates.
Fishman ranks with Altenhof as
an offensive guard, being especially
adapted to handling the ball under
the basket. He has a better eyeI
with one hand than his two-handed
shots Coach Fisher believes.
Ratterman is the fastest man on
the squad. His style of play features!
a quick break and flashy floor-
work. Petoskey is a rugged six-foot
forward. He saw little duty during
the season as his studies held him
down, but he has one of the bright-
est futures of any member of the

The yearling cagers played no
regular schedule of games, their ac-
tivies being confined to daily work-
outs with scrimmage among them-
selves, and an occasional practice

Intramural Contest.
The final telegraphic meet of the
indoor season, with the Maize and
Blue freshmen competing with theI
Wisconsin and Minnesota yearlings
will be completed this coming Fri-
On the basis of comparative
scores the Badgers appear to have
the edge, having triumphed over
the Illini by a five point margin
while the Michigan youngsters were
bowing to the latter by the narrow
margin of one-third of a point. The
strength of the Minnesota team is
All members of the Freshman
track squad should compete in
the Intramural meet tonight at
7 o'clock in the Yost Field House.

Boxing Show in Intramural Ring
Will Decide Eight Campus
iChampionship Claims.
Eight Championship bouts for
the All-Campus tournament will
feature the Intramural Boxing card
at eight o'clock on Wednesday in
the gymnasium at 8 o'clock.
This show will be the finals of
the tournament that has been run-
ning under the direction of Coach
Let Philbin for the past two weeks.
Sixteen men are battling for the
silver statuette that is the first
prize. The runnerups in each
weight division will receive plaques.
Tickets for the show are now on
sale in Wahr's and Slater's book
stores, City Cigar Store, and Hart's
Arcade Barber shop. Student rep-
resentatives are selling the paste-
boards on the campus. The sale at
the gate will start at 7:30. The
tickets are priced at fifty cents,.
In no division will there be easy
going for the favorite. The boxers
are of about the same ability and
will present the best show, from
the spectators standpoint, ever to
be presented by the Intramural de-
The bouts have been arranged
according to weight so that the
first bout of the evening will see
K. Ando mix with H. Hirata in the
flyweight class. The bouts will ex-
tend in series up to the heavy-
weight affair betwen Bill Hewitt
and Bob Morgan.

Illinois, Rated Strongest, Beaten
Badly by Michigan Swordsmen.
by Michigan Swordsmen.
The Western Conference fencing
meet this Friday and Saturday at
Urbana will close the Big Ten sea-
son for the Wolverine Varsity
swordsmen. Captain Gordon, Fried-
man, and Powers will carry Michi-
gan's title hopes.
Preliminaries Friday.
Each team will be represented by
one man in each of the three divi-
sions-foils, sabre, epee. The pre-
liminaries will be run off on Friday
afternoon and evening and on Sat-
urday, with the final bouts sched-
uled for Saturday night. Illinois is
rated the strongest team in the
Conference, and Chicago is probab-
ly the next best. The Illini handed
Michigan the worst defeat of the
year, 14-3, and the worst it has suf-
fered in several seasons. The Ma-
' oons also took the measure of the
Wolves, although only. by a single
point. Judging by the dual meet
results, Michigan has an excellent
chance to take second place honors.
Michigan will be very ably repre-
sented in the foil events by Fried-
man, probably the best foil fencer
in the Conference. Friedman has'
been the most consistent man on
the squad, having won the majority
of his bouts in all but one meet,
and that the opening one against
Ohio State, in which he managed
to take only one out of the three
bouts. Against Illinois, Chicago, and
Wisconsin the Wolverine star cap-
tured two matches in each meet,
and in the Northwestern encounter
he won all three. With this record
to stand on, Friedman should turn
in a victory for the Wolves in this
Captain Gordon in Sabres.
Captain Gordon will uphold the
honor of the Maize and Blue in the
sabres. Although the Wolverine
leader has not had such a success-
ful season with the sabre, he is

Daniels Is All-Around Star.
The new Michigan captain is a
graduate of Detroit Southeastern,
where he earned All-State honors
at forward. Besides playing basket-
ball here at Michigan he has won
letters at football and baseball dur-
ing his two years of competition,
and is considered one of the best
all-around athletes ever developed
under the Maize and Blue. Daniels
plays an end in football, and is a
star infielder on the diamond.
The cheerleader for next year
was also announced between halves
last night when Jack Herbst, De-
troit, was appointed to fill the shoes
