Elliot, Veteran 'of Two Years
Ago, Returns to Squad;
Battle Predicted.




.. ...



Michigan's prospects for a suc-
cessful mat season appear at the
present time to be fairly promising.
Coach Cliff Keen has a wealth of
material among the 54 candidates
who have answered his call for
wrestling prospects.
Several lettermen from last sea-
son are bidding for positions on the
squad as well as a talented bunch
of sophomores. Auer, who is cap-
tain of the squad, will be available
after the football season. He and
Stoddard are veterans in the heavy
weight division. Benz is also a
veteran of last season and is work-
ing in the 145 pound division.
Veteran Returns
A merry fight will be waged in
the 135 pound class between Wood-
ward, 1929 letterman, and "Red"
Elliot who starred on the mat
squad two years ago. Elliot lost
only one match in his varsity com-
petition for Michigan that year.
That was to Morrison of Illinois
who took the world's champion-
ship in his class "Red" has returned
to the University after a year of
Among the sophomore candidates
who are most promising is Sigwart
who is fighting for the 118 pound
division. Aldinger is out for the
126 pound weight. No outstanding
prospects have been found as yet
for the 155, 165, or 175 pound divi-
Meet West Virginia
Competition for the grapplers
will begin with a meet with the
West Virginia squad the first week
in January. The Conference sched-
ule will be arranged at the coming
meeting of the coaches in Chicago.
Competition this year will be under
the new rules regarding weights
which have been formulated by the
National Wrestling Association.
Coach Keen's squad has never
lost more than one meet each sea-
son since he has been at the uni-
versity a period of five years. It is
hoped that the grapplers will be,
hurdle that jinx meet this year and
come through with the title.

the hard race for honors, while the
other will be fighting to wipe away
the memory of a defeat last week
at the hands of Northwestern and
to make themselves felt around
the circuit. Michigan with one win
and no defeats to its credit will be
able to hope for a successful sea-
son if they can only keep the loss
side of the slate spotless over this
week-end, while Ohio's position is
;just the same except that they
have to win this game to keep
themselves out of a rut which
would spell ruin for their season.

Main Trouble Seen in Filling
Pivot Position.
Despite the tang of football in
the air 'these fine 'fall days, Coach
Gcorge Veenker with an eye to the
future has issaed his first call for
Var.-;y basictall' candidates.
Thirty hopefuls have turned out
this week Lor the first workouts
which are being held twice a week
in the Intramural gymnasium.
Weiss who held down a forward
berth last season is the only vet-
eran letterman out thus far. Other
veterans will be available however
after the football season comes tc
a close. Danils, Hudson, Ccx, D-
Baker, and Williamson 'gave all
had court experience and wil prcb-
ably form the nucleus for the 1930-
31 cdurt squad.
Coach Veenker's main difflculty
this year will be in the develop-
rnent of a center. None of the can-
didates out thus far are over .six
feet tall; in fact the average height
is much less than that in the past.
Manuel is the only prospect for the
pivot position at uresent, but he is
only a bare six-footer. Most of the
men are sophomores, 'however, and
should develop into some fair
basket tossers.

(Continued From Page 6)
Only one new change looms in
the lineup that is likely to start
for the Maize and Blue. Markley, a
halfback, has been breaking into
practice in the Jayvee backfield all
week, and his work in the practice
sessions may earn him a starting
position against the Buckeyes.
Ohio State, although it dropped
a decision to the Indiana "B" team,
which in turn lost a hard played
game to the Wolverines, has a
{strong Junior Varsity eleven that
should prove a hard team to beat.
With the Wolverine eleven in good
condition, however, Coach Court-
right is looking for the Maize and
Blue to come through.
The probable starting lineup for
Michigan will see Bovard and Jus-
tice at the ends, Jordan at one tac-
kle and either McClelland or Horo-
witz at the other, Parker and Benz
at the guard posts, Winston at
center, Kutsche at quarter, Bremen
and either Coombe or Markley at
the halves, and Berkowitz at full-



IL tramra

This year's Independcent compe-
tition is getting under way with
speedball as the first sport of ten
that will make up the entire sea-
son. This is the first year that In-'
dependent leagues in' speedball
have been tried, and already four
teams have signed up so far. The
Intramural Department hopes to
get ten teams into the competition
in order to make two leagues of
five teams.
The teams that have already en-
tered have been in the Indepen-
dent competition former years. The
Buckeyes who were winners last
year of the all-year competition;
the Rockets, who were the Inde-
pendent basketball champions last
year; the Oaklands; and Fletcher
Iall have submitted lineups and
are ready to start. The Intramural
Department urges any other com-
binations to enter at once so the
season can be started as soon as
Any individual Independents who
are not connected with any special
group or team, and who are inter-
ested in the competition, may leave
their names at the desk in the
Intramural Building and they will
be placed on a team for the season.
In this manner the desired number
of ten teams may be realized.
The athletic program that was
started among the freshmen dur-
ing Orientation Week is rapidly
approaching a close as the several

tournaments reacii their respective
semi-finals. Those that are left in
the competition are expected to
I play off their matches in the next
two weeks.
The rifle-shooting contest was
won by Herbert Gardner who made
a 03 out of a possible 100 to give
him an.Intramural gold medal and
the rifle offered by the R. 0. T. C.
Department. William Morris was
the runner-up by a small margin,
making a score of 92 out of 100 to I
get a silver medal.
Four men have reached the
quarter-finals in the tennis match-
es.. They are Sandusky, Root, Way-
ing, and Nisen, who will play off
for the semi-finals with the winners
of Maxwell versus Bauer, Muzzy
versus Fine, Wells versus Renick,
and S. W. Smith versus Finch.
The horseshoe tournament alone
has reached the finals with B.
Larson and L. Brown meeting for
first honors. Golf on the other
hand is lagging with but three men
in the quarter - finals: Keitetz,
David, and George. The matches
are being run off on the TJniversity
Golf course whenever the oppon-
ents arrange to meet each other.
The remaining tournaments are
the squash and handball meets.
The former has reached one semi-
final match between Fiske and
Donovan with Simmons waiting to
play the winner of Akanes versus
Bailey. In the latter, two semi-final
matches remain; Bowers versus
Sommer and Pederson versus An-
derson. The courts may be reserved
at any time to run off these games.
