Code Ball, Handball, Squash
and Badminton Matches
Played by Experts.
Exhibition Day at the Intramural
building yesterday drew a crowd
of more than 309 persons to witness
the champions of four sports dem-
onstrate their prowess.
Dr. W. E. Code, originator of
Codeball, gave his exhibition in the
afternoon and the second demon--
stration at night, p3laying George
Webster, champion of the Middle-
west. Code defeated Webster in the
evening engagement, two games out
of three, but lost the afternoon
contest by the same score.
The Detroit Athletic club won
four squash matches from a picked
team of Michigan students and
faculty members who gained but
a lone contest. These meets were
the best of the evening as nearly
every point won needed a full min-
ute or more before the point was
The Toledo Y. M. C. A. met de-
feat on the handball courts at the
hands of a Michigan aggregation,
losing five matches to two in the
singles and also losing the lone
doubles match. Two feature hand-
ball matches were played w i t h
Berg and Walker, of Toledo, lead-
ing in the singles event, and Walker
and Betts teaming together to tie
with Berg and Machen in the doub-
les match.
Dr. William E. Code, of the But-
terfield Country club, Chicago, in-
ventor of the game of Codeball,
and George Webster, Middle-west
champion, evened the score of their
two exhibitions when Dr. Code lost
the afternoon match before more
than 50 spectators by a score of
2-1 and then came back to win the
evening engagement by a similar
Several times during the match,
Dr. Code stopped the play and ex-
plained the finer points of the
game. This instruction c a u s e d
much comment and Earl Riskey, of
the Intramural department, an-
nounced that because of the popu-
larity of the game, the department
will supply balls for those who wish
to compete in the new sport.
The game is played with a hollow
rubber ball six inches in diameter,
and handball rules are followed ex-
cept that the ball is kicked instead
of hit with the hand and played
>n a handball court.
By winning five out of the seven
handball matches in the singles,
the Michigan t e a m successfully
turned back the Toledo "Y" team.
However, the two best players of
the Toledo team staged exhibitions
in singles and doubles as special
features of the Exhibition day pro-
gram. Berg, Ohio champion and
runner-up in the 1930 national
handball meet, in St. Louis, lost to
'(alker, national champion in 1926
and former Ohio champion, by a
score of two games to one in the
singles match. Walker teamed with
Betts against Berg and Machen,
all of the Toledo team for a feature
doubles match,. each winning one
game. The deciding game was not
Riskey and Phaelps lost to the
Toledo doubles team of Helwig and
Hiehl, 2 games to 1.

the only Woiverine reserves that
have much chance of breaking into
the fray.
Remembering what happened at
:varquette when the team was
forced to meet the Hilltoppers onr
a sloppy rink that felt the effects
of the weather, it is unlikely that
tonight's game will be played unless
ice conditions are such that neither
team will be handicapped. Under
those conditions the forwards find
it impossible to carry the puck and
the game resolves itself into noth-
ing more than trying to bat the
puck into the net from scrambles in
the goal mouth.
With Michigan's present team on
the whole a better aggregation than
the one that copped the Conference
championship last year, it appears
almost certain that victories over
the Badgers will almost certainly,
establish Coach Lowrey's team as
the outstanding contenders for the
title again this season. Minnesota,
the other team in the league, in its
pre-season games has failed to flash
anything like its usual form, and
should not interfere seriously with
Ih2 msrches of Wisconsin and
Michigan toward the title.
