Stars for Wolverines

Boxers Prepare
Interclass B

Michigan's varsity basketball goes
ato the final week of the prelimi-
.ary practice season tomorrow,
rhen intensive preparation for the
testern State game on Dec. 7:really
eets under way. Coach Cappon, en-
ering his first season as head bas-
etball coach, faces a difficult task
austering a starting lineup without
he help of those members of last
ear's team who have been engaged,
i late football activities.
Four lettermen form the football
ntingent. Captain Norm Daniels,
enter, Williamson; guard, and Tess-
ter, guard, are almost certain to be
issing from the lineup, while the
aeligibility of Ray Altenhof, stellar
efense man, deprives the mentor
f another mainstay.
Cappon Will Start Regulars.
Despite the major shift in combi-I
tion which will' be. necessitated
y the loss of this quartet, Coach
appoh can still send a seasoned
utfit into the initial fray a week
ence. The mentor tentatively plans
> pick his starting lineup from six
asoiled players.
Three flashy forwards, Eveland,
reiss, and Petrie, are available for
s in the first contest, and it seems
robable that one of the trio will
old down a defense berth. Gar-
er, shaw, and Ricketts, reserves of
st season, who displayed consider-
ble form then, w'ill probably ao-
unt for the remaining two posi-
ons. Ricketts, the only center
indidate mentioned, is likely to
art the game.'
Sophomores Strong Again.
Barta, and Kimmel, new names
. the basketball annals of Michi-
in, may get into the game, while
llen, a lariky center, seems to
tare their chance along with Bo-
en, guard. Root and McDonald, re-,
rves of 'last year, will also be on
and as replacements.

CHICAGO, Nov. 28. - '(P) - Ten
embers of the Northwestern foot-
i11 squad were nursing mild bruis-'
and shaky nerves today as they
mnt out to meet Purdue in their
ia1 game of the season.
The bruises and shaky nerves
re caused by an unpleasant ex-
rience last night when they drop-

Argentine. Fighter Goes Down
for Count of 10 in Second'
Round of Fight.
NEW YORK, Nov. 28.--(A)--For
Victorio Campolo the fistic trail.
defintely seems to lead back to
South America.
The six-foot seven - inch giant
from Argentina lasted less than two
rounds against the not-so-tall but
more ponderous Primo Carmera in
Madison Square Garden last night.
One volley of lefts and rights sent
him to the floor early in the second
round and another finished him for
the rest of the evening.
Thus ends Campolo's hopes of re-
establishng his pugilistic reputa-;
tion which suffered. sadly when- the
tall Gaucho took a bad lacing from
Tommy Loughran in 10 rounds and
was knocked out in seven by Ernie,
Schaaf. This new setback apparent-
ly will eliminate Campolo entirely
from heavyweight consideration."
Gunboat Smith Referees.
There was the referee, Gunboat
Smith, a former heavyweight star
himself, turned into a "midget" by
Campolo's six feet seven inches and
Carnera's six feet six. Between them
the huge rivals aggregated 491
pounds, Carnera scaing 266 1-2 and
Campolo 224 1-2.
As an exhibition of punching
power on Carnera's part it was not,
so much for Campolo took the final
count sitting down, solemnly con-i
teimplating the canvas and exhibit-
ing not the slightest desire to leave
a comfortable position for one per-
haps not so comfortable.
Strange Fistics Produced.
The "dreadnaughts," as William
Muldoon called them when he es-
tablished a new fistic division a
few months ago, mixed it freely in
the first round with no particular
damage to either combatant. Resin
dust rose in clouds as the gigantic
warriors tramped around the ring.
Campolo shot over his best punch,
a right, time and again without
drawing more than a raised eye-I
brow from Carnera.
The second round of the 15-round

Burgoo King, Son of 1926 Win-
ner, Shows Fine Form at
"Idle Hour' Farm.
By "ohn Townsend
Turning aside from the realm .of
football for, an instant iet us gaze
on the old homestead in the land
of Kentucky where the sun seems
to be shining brightest and the~
hopes of added laurels are running
On0Col. E. R. Bradley's Idle Hour
Farm the colored hostlers and oth-
er hands are humming merrily as
theygo, about their appointed
tasks. Everyone at Idle Hour is:
happy. All thoughts are turned to
the coming spring, for it is then
that they hope to see the silks of
Idle Hour hoisted high once again.
With the coming of spring the
Kentucky Derby steps into the lime
light, and it is toward the' realiza-
tion of hope of having the green.
and white colors leading the field in
this gmleat classic that all hands are
working for now.
Burgoo King is His Best.
Col. Bradley has another great
three-year-old hope, the first real
derby hope that he has had since
1929, when Blue Larkspur carried
the hopes of the Idle Hour hands,
and failed.
This fal's derby aspirant is Bur-
goo King. The colt is a son of Bub-
bling Over, winner of the 1926 Ken-
tucky Derby and the last winner to
carry the green and white silks.
The veteran horseman is very en-
thusiastic about his colt, which is'
just drawing his two-year-old sea-
son to a close. The colonel is still.

Four Michigan Amateurs Asked

Four members of the boxing team
of the University have entered the

U.C.L.A. Inaugurates
Novel Broadcast Idea
Something entirely new in the
field of radio broadcasting of inter-#
collegiate football games was in-
augurated at the Olympic Stadium ,
in Los Angeles recently. Many fans
were desirous of listening to the
Notre Dame - Southern California
game which was being played in
'South Bend, as well as witnessing !
the U.C.L.A.-Oregon game sched-
uled for the Olympic Stadium.
Accordingly, U.C.L.A. officials ar-
rang d for a re-broadcast of the
Notr Dame game via the public
address system in the stadium. The
difference,"in time made it possible
for those interested to hear the
mid-west game before the start of
the game in the Stadium. -

Who broke into the lineup yes-
terday against Wisconsin and prov-
ed that Coach Kipke has another
halfback of first class calibre to use
next year. The Kalamazoo youth
can kick, pass, and carry the ball
on quick-opening plays and end
runs. He pressed Jack Heston for
the halfback position all year and
was finally given his chance. His
brilliant exhibition yesterday came
up to his class of play last spring
when he won the Chicago Alumni
