Varsity Coach to Start Frumkes
and McCollum in Place of
David and Porte.
Michigan's hockey sextet, still
seeking experience for its sopho-
more stars before the start of the
regular Western Conference season,
will cross sticks with the strong
University of Western Ontario
pwckmen at 8 o'clock tonight on the
Coliseum ice.
Judging from the large number
of fans that witnessed the first en-
counter of the year with Chatham,
the turnout at tonight's game
should be just as good or better in-
asmuch as the. Western Ontario
team has already beaten the con-
querers of Michigan. Four gatest
will be opened to take care of thel
crowd that is expected to witnessr
the game, three for the studentsc
and one for the general public. I
Both coupon books and identi-
fication cards, in addition to the
regular charge of 35 cents, will be
required, for admittance by stu-
dents. General' admission prices
will continue at 75 cents as in for-
mer games. .
Two Changes in Lineup.
Two changes Will be made in the
Michigan lineup that. will face the
hard skating Canadians. Joey
Frumkes, who has seen considler-
able duty this season as one of the
spare wingmen, will take over the
right wing pst in plate of George
David. The other change will see
Porte replaced at a defense post
by M9Collum. McCollum started he1
season s one of the regulars but
was replaced by the husky sopho-
more, Porte, in the last game.
With the exception of these two
changes the Wolverine lineup will
remain intact. Keith Crossman
will handle the center duties again,
while the veteran scoring star, Em-
my Reid, will pair at the wings withj
Frumkes., Chapman, another soph-
omore, is expected to start at the1
other defense position, while Cap-
tain "Oakie" Tompkins will be back
at his old post as guardian of the
Michigan net. .
Marsden Has Strong Team.
Coach Marsden of the Westernf
Ontario team brings an aggrega-
tionthat should give the Maize and
Blue plenty of trouble. In other
seasons this team has been one of
the best Canadian sextets in this
region, and its victory over the
powerful Chatham team stamps it
as a hard aggregation to beat. The
team boasts of three strong for-l
ward lines, while in Patterson, Mc-
Callum, Quigley, Brown, and Fred-
dy Marsden, the coach's son, theym
have a quintet of players that
should keep the inexperienced Wol-
verine defense at its best tostop 1
their rushes down the ice. To-
night's game will be Western On-}
tario's second contest in as many
nights, the team having met thec
Windsor Mic-Macs last night.t
Yearling Puck Squad
Works With Varsity
Coach Eddie Lowry has been
working his freshmen hard in an
effort to round them out so that
they may give his Varsity much
needed practice. About 18 men
worked last against the Varsity.
The yearling squad to date is
made up of Jacobson, Kerr, Cush-
ing, Palmer, Stellman, Mayfield,

Stoddard, Stewart, Sobin, Patchin,
McEachin, Laun, Gustafson, Cour-
tis, Brandt, Jewell, Scherif, and
Although it is toc early in the
season to get a line on his mater-E
ial, Coach Lowry said that a few
have shown enough in practice to
warrant extra attention.

Resigns Post

Captain Daniels Will Probably
Be Given Center Post.
Coach "Cappy" Cappon again
drilled his University of Michigan
basketeers on offense in prepara-
tion for the last practice game of
the season against Mt. Union next
Although Cappon is not greatly
worried about the outcome of Sat-
urday's tilt, he is attempting to drill
his quintet on a sufficiently strong
offense to insure the largest meas-
ure of success against Big Ten con-
ference opponents, the first of
whom will be met at Madison, Jan-
uary 9. - Wisconsin, by virtue of a
recent victory over Pittsburgh, 30-
29, when a basket in the last thir-
ty seconds of play changed a de-
feat into victory, looms as a tough
hurdle for the varsity.
Captain Daniels, whose situation
on the varsity has been somewhat
unsettled since his return from the
football squad, will probably see
starting action against Mount Un-
ion, Saturday night. Garner, who
replaced Daniels last week in the
M.S.C. game, will probably be
benched, temporarily at least. Eve-
land and Weiss are the probable
starters at forward, although Pet-
rie's showing against State last
week insures his seeing action in
the near future.

Wisconsin Defeats
Pitt; Notre Dame
Crushed by Purdue
Purdue's basketball team, led by
Captain Johnny Wooden, two time
All-American floor guard, over-
whelmed the Notre Dame quintet
at South Bend, Tuesday night, 34
to 24, to continue the Boilermakers'
string of pre-season victories.
Ward Lambert's team looked ex-
ceptionally g o o d in trouncing
Washington University of St. Louis
last Saturday, piling up more than
50 points in the victory. Lambert's
squad has shown itself to be a
contender for the Big Ten title.
The Purdue five won the champion-
ship in 1929, and finished high in
the race last season.
Pittsburgh's travelling t e a m
dropped their first game in the
west, bowing before the Wisconsin
court team, 30-29. Captain Steen
of Wisconsin provided the winning
basket late in the game. The last
Panther point came when the Bad-
ger team left the court 30 seconds
before the end of the game by mis-

Academy Graduates to Seek Out
Prep Stars in Effort to
Build Strong Eleven.
ANNAPOLIS, Md., Dec. 16.-(P)-
Navy is going out into the highways
and byways seeking promising ma-
terial for its football team.
Meeting in New York the Naval
Academy Graduates' association
decided the time had come to inter-
est prep school gridiron stars in
matriculation at the academy.
No Celebrations.
Long lean years with no obcasion
for celebration because of victory
and a possible return of Army to
the regular schedule, waspointed to
as the reason.
And the academy too gave tacit
approval to the rproselyting man-
euver. The Graduates' association
will not have as good a spy system
as the Army, it was 'pointed out,
as the Navy only operates on the
coasts while the Army is scattered
all over the nation.
To Attract Stars.
The association will send out
speakers to prep schools to interest
football players in Annapoli . It
will seek to have available eon-
gressmen who will be willing to ap-
point promising *young players.
Once accepted at the academy they
will be required to maintain the
regular scholastic standing.
If necessary the graduates de-
clared the prospective students will
be groomed for a year or more be-
fore taking the entrance examina-
Navy coaches reappointed yester-
day have expressed a need for play-
ers averaging 15 pounds heavier
than Middie material in the past,
and the graduates are determined
to provide it.

Only today remains to turn in
intramural basketball entries.
The list closes today, and this in-
cludes teams in all intramural
divisions. Earl Riskey.
