Give Flashy Display in Defeat

Score in Game.,
It was a rather different appear-
ing basketball team that took the
floor last night for Coach Cappy
Cappon than the slow crew which1
cavorted about, the court just pre-
vious to the holidays. Perhaps it
may be caused by a renewal of
spirit after the holiday layoff, or
perhaps even to that shiny new
finish on the Yost field house court,
but at any rate a flashy, fast step-
ping quintet of Varsity tossers
romped through a practicescrim-
mage with the Reds in 'the best
form they' have shown in some
time. The Varsity boys took the
honors by trouncing the scrubs
20-15.-
The Varsity quintet composed of
Weiss and Williamson in the guard
positions, Daniels at -center, and
Petrie and Eveland at forward got
of to a rather slow startdand the
Reds had' run up a lead of six
points before the first string ball
handlers even worked out of their
lethargy. The second string outfit
was made up of Garner at center,
Petoskey and Hudson at forward,
and Shaw and Tessmer at guard.
New Combination Works.
This new combination which
Coach Cappon has been trying out
since it worked so well in the last
game over at Syracuse calls for the
moving of Weiss back into one of
the guard posi-
tions to team up
with Ivan. This
leaves Petrie and
Eveland to hold
down the forwad :,.
positions. The lat-
ter certainly is "

formances yesterday in tipping in
several underbasket shots with his
favorite one-handed toss were ex-
ecuted without a failure.
By the time the Wolves bump into
the Badgers at Madison next Sat-
urday night, Coach Cappon will
have had some tirhe to iron out
the many wrinkles which have ap-
peared in a rather ineffective
offense thus far this season. The
men just couldn't seemI t come out
and do things like they did early
last season and the loss of Altenhof
has also proved another stumbling
block for the Wolverine mentor.
The Big Ten debut however, pro-
mises to see the Michigan quintet
in far better form than at any pre-
vious time this season.
Daniels Stars in Scrimmage.
Captain Daniels put on a rather
excellent exhibition of basket toss-
ing yesterday by dropping three
beautiful shots through the hoop
in a fashion which was enough to
warm any coach's heart. As the
scrimmage warmed upa bit, the
players also seemed to get into the
spirit of the play and there was
plenty of fast work in the many
melees under 'the basket. '
The men were a bit slow in get-
ting up into the air for the ball
for recoveries, but snapped out of
it after a session with the coach.
Some improvement is needed in
the passing line, for time and again
the Varsity worked down on offense
only to lose the ball through in-
accurate and faulty passing.
These matters, however, are very
easily remedied, the shining light.

GUE BALL CIRCUITS

Despite the fact that the Wild-
cats were held to a one-point mar-
gin of victory in the opening Con-
ference game, Northwestern Uni-
versity demonstrated that once
again it will have to be reckoned
with when the season's honors are
being passed around. Wisconsin
proved to be a tougher opponent
than was expected, and kept the
Wildcats on their toes throughout
the forty minutes of milling and
one overtime period, before losing
31-30.
Although Ward Lambert's Purdue
outfit was conceded a slight edge
over Indiana, the overwhelming 49-
30 victory came as a distinct sur-
prise to Big Ten court fans. Ohio
State's 29-2 victory over Illinois
also proved to be a mild upset. Long
shots in the last period by Hoffer
and Matteson, Ohio guards, turned
the trick.
Iowa defeated Drake 24-18 in its

brought mazy changes in the world
of sports. Just like his predecessors
though, he failed to produce any-
thing new in the way of thrills in
the American League baseball race,
and for the third successive season
the Philadelphia Athletics marched
on to a junior league title. What
will 1932 bring?

Despite the fact that the
New York Yankees, Washington
Senators, and several o t h e r
teams in the league have been
picked as distinct threats for
the last several years without
any "threat" at all apparent
when the season was under
way, 1932 does promise to bring
at least a slight bit more com-
petition to the Mackmen than
its predecessor brought. Joe
McCarthy, down in Gotham,
has designs on the junior loop
flag, and the changes he has
made in the Yanks seem to in-
dicate he will make a fight for
it.

McCarthy's most i m p o r t a n t
changes have been wrought in his
infield., one of. the weak spots of
his 1931 nine. Lou Gehrig; at first
base, was the only one of the New.
York infielders who played up to
standard in the last campaign, and
although he did his best to over-
come. the failings of the others, he
could not play four positions in the
inner defense at the same time.
Joe Sewell, the ex-Cleveland
fstar, also did well in a coine-
back role, but he is far from the
star he used to be when he
sported the regalia of the Red-
skins. At shortstop, Lyn Lary,
a fine young infielder, was han-
dicapped greatly by the sudden
and complete downfall of Tony
Lazzeri at second base. Jimmy
Reese, Lary's partner in the
Coast League, was the only
Yankee substitute to warrant
mention. "
Two new infielders have been
added to the New York roster since
the conclusion of the 1931 cam-
paign. One of them, Frank Cros-
setti, has been touted as the best
infielder in the minor leagues last
season, while the other, Saltzgaver
of St. Paul, looks like the next
guardian of the keystone sack in
the Yankee stadium, Crossetti is
slated for the shortstop berth, the
position he played in the Coast
league, all of which causes one to

wonder where Lary will be station-
ed when next April rolls around.
The most likely explanation
seems to be that Lary will see
service at third base, always J
providing of course, that Laz-
zei does not return to the form
that made him one of the
league's most valuable players
onlya year ago. Should "Poosh-
em-up" come back to his old ]
time form, one of the men
slated for regular berths will£
have to step aside to allow thea
Italian star room in the infield.
A chance still remains that Laz-
zeri will be peddled to some other
American League club before the
season opens. Cleveland, Detroit,
and Chicago especially are desir-
ous of adding Lazzeri's name to,
their playing lists, and if either
of these clubs offered the Yankees
a first rate pitcher in exchange, it
probably could swing a deal.
McCarthy's one crying need, be-,
sides his infield, is a first class pit-
cher that will deliver the goods.
Should the former Cub boss get his
hands on one more good hurler,
baseball fans can begin to count on
a close pennant race in the Ameri-
can League. But then again, may-
be the Yanks will slip as they have
in the past few years, and maybe
the A's will make another farce out
of the race. It remains to be seen
whether, or not 1932 will treat the
league any better than the old year
did.
Tigers Release Seven'
Seven young Tigers were released
by the Detroit Ball Club today to
minor league clubs. Harvey Walker,
Frank Doljach, and Tommy Huges
were sent to Toronto while Henry
Greenberg and Tom Holley were re-
leased. to the Beaumont Club of the
Texas League. Ivy Shiver and
Charley Sullivan were sent to Mon-
treal.
Hub Walker follows his brother
Gerald to Toronto. Gerald was sent
to Toronto last season when he
failed to hit big league pitching.

TORONTO SPRINGS'
HOCKEY SURPRISE
Leads Internationial D i v i s i o n
After Being Picked to
Finish Third.
Connie Smythe's Toronto Maple
Leafs; picked to finish in third po-
sition in the International Division
of the Natonal Hockey League have
upset the dope bucket and at the
beginning of the New Year the
Blue and White pucksters are well
out in the van in their division.
The New York Americans, who
also caused the experts a bit of
worry by beginning the season with
a flourish, have noticibly slowed
up, falling into third position. They
h a v e released f o u r forwards,
Holmes, Emms, Massecar and Car-
son and added Tommy Filmore and
Bert Mclnnenly from Detroit and
Jerry Jeremiah from New Haven
in an effort to get going again.
Montreal in Second Place.
Steady play has been displayed
by the cup-defending Montreal Ca-
nadians who are safely entrenched
in second place. The Maroons, city
rivals of the Canadians, are in the
cellar, playing poor hockey. Norm
Smith, rookie goal tender was in-
jured recently, and Flat Walsh was
recalled fromNew Haven to fill in
between the posts. The return of
the veteran may go far in bolster-
ing the Maroon defense, which has
been very weak this season.
In the American Division the
New York Rangers are playing a
great brand of hockey are well out
in front of the other three clubs.
The infallible Cook-Boucher-Cook
combination is clicking while Paul
Dillon, new forward find is rank-
ing among the leading scorers of

Boston, Chicago Stage Battle.
Boston and Chicago continue to
battle for second and third places
and generally are separated by the
narrowest possible martins, The
Bruins have obtained Eddie Burke,
a star forward from the minor
leagues in an effoit .to strengthen
the offense.
Johnstone's Fencing
Team Considers Meet
All of Coach Johnstone's fencing
team have reported for practice,
since the holidays with the excep-
tion of two. Daily workouts are be-
ing held to get the fencers in trim
for the proposed trip to Detroit
Saturday.
The Cadillac A. C. are holding
an "open house" on that day and
an invitation has been extended
Coach Johnston and his charges to
enter in the individual competition.
Present plans are to accept the in-
vitation as it will enable the var-
ity to engage in some real com-
petition.
