Post for Statel Game.


With the game with Michiganm
State only two days away, Coach
George Veenker sent his Wolver-
ine basketball squad through a
long offensive and defensive work->
out yesterday in Yost Field House,
finally pitting the first string line-
up against a team of substitutes,
in a scrimmage session.-
Although they started slowly the
regulars soon got into the swing
of things to count five baskets in
rapid succession on only five at-
tempts. From that time on they
pulled steadily away from the sec-
ond stringers to outclass them in k
every department of play.'
Lineup Remains Same.4
Apparently, from his selections of{
a starting lineup yesterday, Coach
Veenker will use the same team
that faced Western State NormalY
college last Saturday in the game
this week against the Spartans.
Weiss and Eveland were again at
the forward positions, Daniels Associated Press Photo
jumped center, and Altenhoff and Albie Booth, Eli 1931 gridiron captain, and-perennial Yale athlete
Shaw took care of the guard posts. 1 is shown here in basketball togs as he appeared for practice in the Blue

Three Dual Big Ten Meets Add
Stiffness to Wrestling
Announcement of the complete
schedule for the Michigan wrestling
team was made by Cdach Cliff Keen
yesterday. One date is still tenta-
tive but it will probably be made
final by the end of the week. Con-
sisting of eight meets in all, the
schedule includes three outside
meets, three conference dual meets,
the East-West and the Conference
meets. The Wolverine grapplers
will have plenty to do.
West Virginia will take on the
Michigan squad here Jan. 10 for the
first meet. The following w e e k
there is a tentative meet with Ohio
University at the Buckeye home.
January 24 will see the wrestling
team from Michigan State take on
the Wolverines here for the last
meet until the final examinations
are over and the second semester
Ohio First Conference Meet.
The next meet will be February,
14 when Michigan goes against its
first conference opponent. It will be
held here and the Ohio State grap-
plers will furnish the opposition.
The following week Indiana comes
here to try their hands at the Wol-
verines. The end of the month,
February 28, sees Northwestern in
action on the Michigan mat.
Then if Michigan wins in its divi-
sion, the Wolverines will wrestle the
,winners of the other division in the
annual East-West meet March 7.
The season comes to a close with
the Conference meet at Chicago
March 14.
Practice Sessions Stiffer.
In view of the above schedule,
Coach Keen gave him men a stiff
practice session yesterday, for the
Wolverines will have to develop
considerably better than they are
now before they can go up against

Performanicc of Contestants Is
Satisfactory o Coach
Ken Doherty.
Yearling thinclads got their first
taste of real collegiate action yes-
terday afternoon as the first fresh -
man track meet of the season got
under way at Yost field house under
the direction of Coach Ken Doher-
ty. Six track events were run off
and although most of the times
chalked up were nothing out of the
ordinary, Coach Doherty said that
they were fairly satisfe tory con-
sidering the condition of most of
the entrants.e
The 50-yard sprint was by far
the most exciting of the events
with Don Renwick turning in the
good time of :5 three-fifths to take
the finals. Renwick's showing was
extraordinary considering the fact
that this is the first time he has
ever run this event. HeE easily took
the first heat with a lead of several
feet over his nearest competitor,
Heston, and also led in the semi-
final heat. The final sprint was
much closer, with little to choose
between Renwick and Doner for
first honors. Heston took third
place in the finals.e
Doner also made a fine showing
in this first meet, running second
in the sprint and taking the sec-
ond position in the gruelling 330-
yard run. Younger took an easy
first in this event in the mediocre
time of :34.9. Lennen took the third
position. ec
McDowell captured the 65-yard
high hurdles which resulted in a
three cornered competition after
Garrison had taken a nasty spil
on the second hurdle. Eldred and
Gravelle followed McDowell in close

McManus sort of upset the pre-
dictions when he took an easy first

winner. Dixon took the third posi-
tion in this event. The time was

Varsity Encounters Unexpected
Opposition┬░ in Detroit
Yacht Club Squad.
Coach Matt Mann's Varsity swim-
mers found their stiffest competi-
tion thus far this season in a meet
Tuesday night at the Detroit Yacht
Club, when they were hard pressed
to take the decision, 35-29. As an
added feature of the contest the
majority of the Yacht Club swim-
mers were former Michigan men,
having participated in Conference
meets for the Wolverines many
times in recent years.
The performance of the Varsity
as a whole was rather disappoint-
ing to Coach Mann, who has ex-
pected his team to take the majori-
ty of their meets by a large margin.
A few veterans remain from last
year and with the addition a host
of sophomores who last season
composed one of the greatest fresh-
man tank squads that Michigan
has seen, the prospects have been
exceedingly bright for a champion-
ship team. But thus far the Wol-
verines have failed to show the
anticipated class.
Wolves Off to Slow Start.
In the opening event of the Mich-
igan-Detroit Yacht Club encounter
the Wolverines got off to a bad
start, by finishing second to the
fast quartet of Hosmer, Nevins,
Curtis, and Walaitas, who turned in
a time of 1:38 in the relay. Hosmer
and Walaitas were members of the
1930 Maize and Blue relay team
that broke the world's record in a
dual meet with Northwestern. The
Michigan team was composed of
Marcus, Klintworth, Smith, and
Schmeiler, Wolverine all-around
flash, stopped the Yacht Club ad-
vance in the next event, however,
by covering the 200 yai ds of the
breast stroke race in 2:39, to defeat
McClellan of the Yacht Club and
Lemak of the Wolves. In the 50-
yard sprint Marcus and Fenske an-
nexed first and third places respec-
tively to gain six more points for
the invaders. Marcus' time was 25.2
Two Michigan men, Kennedy and
Ladd finished first and second in
the quarter mile event for eight
points, with the winner doing the

him to tak-e a more active part in
the games.
Garner was at center for the sec-
ond team, while Baldwin and Petrie
teamed ,up at the forwards and
Ricketts and O'Neill at the guards.
O'Neill especially looked good, the
stocky guard playing a nice game
on the defense and sinking several
baskets in a sensational fashion.
Daniels Stars.
In the first game and in the
practice sessions to date Norm
Daniels has been impressive at the
center position, so that now it looks
as if the tip-off job were definitely
his. His scoring ability is as good
as that of anyone else on the squad,
and his capable guarding will keep
any of his opponents from rolling
up a large score against him. Al-
though Daniels has been unable to
get the jump on Garner with any
regularity, the capable work of re-
covering the ball by the other four
men has in a large measure over-

Interclass Volley Ball.
The schedule of interclass volley
ball games will get underway this
afternoon At 4:15 when the Frosh
Phys. Ed's take the court against

ior Lits.

Independent Volley Ball.
The first round of play in the In-
dependent volley b a1I. division
brought the Chinese Students, last
years champs, to the second round,
by virtue of their 2-0 win over the
Actuaries. Fletcher Hall bowed to
the Oaklands by the same score
I while the Brewers were eking out
a hard fought win over the Buck-
eyes. Due to a mixup in schedules
the Michiganders and Falcons did
not play, but they will get togeth-
er the early part of next week.
Second round games scheduled
for tonight at 7:30 will bring the
Brewers and Chinese Students to-
gether while the Buckeyes will take
on Fletcher If all.

Norm Daniels
Letterman from last year who
seems assured of his place at cen-
ter on Coach Veenkers basketball
team. Daniels was second high
scorer in the game with Western
State Teachers College last week,
and is expected to show well a-
gainst M. S. C. this Saturday.
