Daniels, Weiss L e a d
Way for Michigan
By Sheldon C. Fullerton
Forced to battle desperately
from the opening whistle to the
final gun, Michigan's basketball
quintet, picked as easy victors
over a plucky team from Western
State Teachers College, were hard
pressed to capture a 33-27 deci-
sion from the Teachers last night
in Yost Field House. The game;
was: the first of the season for
boh teams, and was played be-
fore a crowd of about 2.000.
With the two veterans of the
team,tCaptain Norm Daniels and
Hank Weiss, leading the way, the
Wolverines stepped out in the sec-
and half to pull away from the
Kalamazoo team after, only two
points separated them at the end
of the half. Late in the contest,
however, a rally by the Teachers
bulled the score up to 33-27, where
it remained until the final gun
Two flashy Western State for-
wards, Althoff and Hanna, pro-
vided plenty of thrills before the
game was finally put in the sack
by the Maize and Blue quintet.
Pete Hanna, an Ann Arbor boy,
sunk .threebaskets and two 'fouls
to give him eight points for the
evening, while Althoff, one of last;
,year's, veterns, ; putin two field
goals and six fouls for 10 points
and high scoring honors for the
Hank Weiss, with four briliant
baskets and a foul, was the out-'
standing Wolverine performer on
the floor, althbugh Norm Daniels'
also put in nine points with three
baskets and the same number of'
charity tosses. Eveland and Wil-
liamson also played well for the
Maize and Blue five.
Play Not Smooth.
While the scoring was unusually'
high for an early season game,
both teams showed that they need-
ed plenty of practice before they
can hope to reach mid-season form.
Western State, lacking t h e all
around class of the bigger Wolver-
ines, made up for their slight de-
ficiency in skill by a fighting spirit
that kept the Michigan cagers

Coach Cappon's quintet, playing
its first game lunder its new men-

basket, but displayed the need for

ball in the opponent's territory. On

Despite the supposed liberal atti-

student body, pacifists who are will-
ing to go to extremes to support
their views are in the minority, re-
hults of the disarmament question-
naire circulated last month by a
group of 20 campus organizations
Of the 450 persons questioned, in-
cluding about a dozen each of min-
isters and R. O. T. C. members, and
a fair proportion of women, 51 per
cent are willing -to bear arms, 21
per cent to render non-combatant
service, and 27 per cent would ren-
er no war service at all. Includ-
ed in the latter category are two
R. O. T. C. men.
On general questions, such as
whether America should lead in
disarmament, and w h e t h e r war
debts should be reduced, the com-
mon attitude was more liberal.
Sixty-enght per cent believe we
should lead in disarming, and 50
per cent favor reduction of debts
and reparations. Cancellation is
advocated by 28 per cent, with only
.22per cent in favor of neither.
Great interest in world affairs
was evinced by 40 per cent of those
questioned. More than half thought
military preparedness is essential
to ational security. The R. 0. T. .
Is approved by 53 per cent."

results of the questionnaire:
