JIlness of Hank Weiss Puts Him
off Form, Weakening Defense
of Wolverine Team.
Capt. Norm Daniels Continues
Scoring Pace Against
Minnesota Quintet.
After experiencing the biggest
upset of the Big Ten season to date
at Minneapolis last Saturday night
when the Gophers took them down,
30 to 26, the Wolverines went1
through a rigorous scrimmage ses-
ssion yesterday in preparation for
their invasion of the Buckeye state
an Thursday.
The reverse at Minnesota evened
the series between the two teams
as the Wolverines annexed the first
' game in Ann Arbor. The Gophers
had. a smooth working defensive
machine on the floor Saturday
which held the Michigan basket
jshooters in better fashion than it
did in the earlier encounter.
Hank Weiss Off Form.
Michigan was slightly handicap-
ped in this second engagement by
the illness of its
Ss tellar g u ard
Hank Weiss, who
had .been suffer-
nrNA ing from. an ail-
i e n t the two
±x Y YYdays previous to
the g ame, and
a who was not up
r F '°to'his usual form.
With Weiss off his
regular form the
Michigan defense,
WEISS which worked al-
most to perfec-
tion in the Illinois game last Mon-
day, was considerably weakened
and the Gopher guards were able
Ato sink the two wiinning tallies in
the closing minutes of play break-
Ing a 26-26 tie.
Captain Norm Daniels and Eve-
land, Michigan's sharp shooters,
kept the s c o r e .k.
on even ter ms
throughout th< e
game, coming >':Y

kept up his re-x .L
mnarkable scoring,
chalking up a to-
tal of nine points.
'. His running mate, DANIELS
Eveland, accounted for eight tal-
lies. After a -slow start Michigan
oaugh up to the Gophers and bat-
tled on even terms for the remain-
der of the game.
Guards ,Supply Punch.
Minnesota's forward Robinson
looked good against the Wolves
chalking up eight points,while the
guards, Licht and Cielusak, ac-
counted for 13 tallies between them.
It was this defense combination
'"which supplied the punch for the
Gopher vicry and also held the
Cappon, aggregation in check.
The Wolverines will be meeting
one of the strongest quintets in the
conference when' theyedgo n the
floor Thursday night in Columbus.

Victory by Maize-and-Blue Team
Is Initial One Registered
in Detroit Pool.
Despite the fact that tank stars
of Detroit Yacht Club forced an
even division of honors as far as
first places in the individual events
were concerned, with three each,
the Wolverine natators were able
to chalk up a rather listless victory
over the Auto City swiinmers last
week-end. The score was 45-30.
As far as action was concerned
the water polo game which follow-
ed the meet proved more of a thril-
ler with the Michigan team drown-
ing the D. Y. C. boys in their home
pool for the", first time in history.
Capt. Miller, Kennedy, Smith, Le-
mak, Marcus, Schmeiler and Drys-
dale made up the teams which took
a 11-5 victory. -Michigan also won
both medley and free style relayj

Former Will Also Pl y in Finals
of Water Polo Th rney
By Charles A. Sanford
Theta Chi's tank stars will be in
the finals again tonight, seeking
a pair of championships, in dual
swimming and water polo, the lat-
ter for the second year. They have
their work cut out for them though,
because Lambda Chi Alpha in the
dual meet and Alpha Kappa Lamb-
da in the polo have strong aggre-
gations. The swimming will be at
8 o'clock in the Intramural pool and

the water polo game will follow im- I
mediately afterward.
The swimming meet is really a
toss-up after a careful analysis of
the teams. Theta Chi's lineup in-
cludes Townsend and Williams in
the 25-yard free style; Earle'and
Eiserman in the 25-yard bhek-
stroke; Hartwell and Howell in the'
25-yard breast stroke; Earle' and
Howell in the diving; and Hartwell,
Townsend, Williams, and Eiserman
swimming the 100-yard relay.
Against these Lambda Chi Alpha
will send Richard Snyder and Art
Wilson in the free style; Bob Sny-
der and Niehus in the back; Ashton
and Mohrhoof, breast stroke; Ash-
ton and Kagay in the diving; and a
relay team of both Snyders, Wilson,
and Kagay.


Although the New York Giants
have been experiencing consider-
able holdout trouble this winter,
their worries were greatly lessened
Saturday when Travis Jackson,
their captain and brilliant short-
stop, came to terms. Terry, Fitz-
simmons and' Fullis still remain
Cagers Are Impressive Despite
Loss of Captain Goss.


University High School's basket-.
ball team, runners-up in last year's
Class-C State Tournament,( have;
started their season auspiciously
with a series of six straight victor-'
ies in as many contests. The nar-
rowest margin of safety in any
fame so far was two points.
In Huron League.
The Wolverine cubs are members
of the Huron League, a conference
of eight schools in surrounding
towns, which has been organized
for only two years. University High
has come out on top in the basket-
ball competition for both years,
and with four league wins already
safely stowed away this year, the
Purple and Gold seems headed for
another title, with fair chances in
the State competition.
Captain Injured.
Handicapped by tht slow conval-
escence of Kelly Goss, captain and
star forward, who was injured in
an auto crash last spring, Coach
Fred East has worked intensively
since November in producing a
smoothly working combination for
the. title race. Captain Goss, al-
though out of school, attends all
the practices and aids the mentor
materially in coaching the greener
inembers of the squad. The acting
captaincy from week to week is
shifted by appointment of Coach
East efore each game. The first
boasts but one veteran, Nesbitt
Haas, a forward, who with McCal-
lum, a guard, holds scoring honors
for the season to date, The other
three members of the starting quin-
tet, Glas, Daugherty, and Howell,
were either reserves or second team
players last year.
Not contented with the victories
among schools of their own class,
the Wolverine cubs schedule games
with class A and. B schools nearly
every season. Among the larger
schools who have succumbed at
j-various times to U. High's aggress
I sive five are Fordson High of Dear-
born, and Ferndale High of De-
troit. M

Lack Fighting Spirit.
It was not that Michigan was
bad, but more lack of competitive
spirit which slowed the times dpwn,
but Drysdale and Schmeiler did
coime through' with excellent per-
formances in the backstroke and
220 respectively. Schmeiler turned
in a time of 2:18 for the 220, but
lost to Curtis of Detroit in the 50-
yard sprint, an event in which he
.rarely competes: Drysdale defeated
Howlett, Yacht Club star back-
stroker, for a first in this event
at 1:42.
Capt. Miller lost a heartbreaking
duel in the breaststroke to his old
rival McClellan. It was only a mat-
ter of a touch at the finish which
decided the winner, The time was
Degener in Goqd Form.
Besides Schnmeiler and Drysdale,
Degener also took a first place by
continuing his championship form
in the diving events. This sopho-
more is one of the prettiest divers
in' the middle west and the water
will be plenty warm when the
Northwestern divers attempt to
outdo him in the Conference meet.
Oxley and Schurig of Detroit took
the next two places.
This will be the last strenuous
meet for the Wolves before the lay-
off for final exams this week with
the exception of a light exhibition
for the benefit of swimming fans
over at Jackson high school Wed-
nesday night.

Rinehart and Hatfield Working h
Out Daily in Preparation
for Spring Trials.
(Speria l to Te aily)
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Jan. 25.-
Members of the Indiana University
track teams which have built up a
national reputation in the last few
years will make -strong bids for
positions on the United States1
Olympic' team this spring. Nine
former Crimson stars are already
in intensive training for the spring
trials. Fur of these are Indiana
stars of, a few years ago while the
rest are undergraduates who are
putting the finishing touches on
their form before the opening of
the indoor season against Ohio
State here Feb. 13.
Among the veterans of past years
who. are training in the Indiana
field house .daily, is Wilmer Rine-
hart, College Corner, 0., former na-
tional javelin throw champion and
universal all-American track 'team
choice for the 1928 season. Rinehart
held the world's record in the jave-
lin throw for a time.'
Jimmy Hatfield, Washington,the
hurdle sensation' on the Indiana
team last year and holder of num-
erous titles and records, is another
Olympic threat. Hatfield has re-
sumed training following a few
months of intensive work for his
degree in Medicine.

Snyder Favored.
The free style will lie between
Townsend, who has made it in 12,
and Snyder, who has clocked 12:02,
-not mucY edge. In the back stroke
Bob Snyder has done 15 to the best
time of 17 for Earle, which gives
the Lambda Chis an edge. In the
next event though, Theta Chi evens
it lip with -Hartwell, defending In-
tramural champion, who has clock-
ed 14:08, as against Ashton, whose
best time. has been 15.
The diving is indefinite for Earle
has led to date with 25 points but
Kagay is plose behind with 24. It
looks like the relay will decide the
meet, and there's the question. The
Laynbda Chi outfit has done the
event in 49:02 this year, while
Theta Chi has not bettered 50; but
Eiserman is the only new man on
the latter's title holders of last year.
Now take your pick!
Theta Chi Has Edge.
t The water polo game will be close
but' Theta Chi has the edge by vir-
tue of four straight wins in which
their' opponents have not scored,
while A.K.L. allowed Phi Gamms
to get 3 points in the semi-finals.
'ssaH sapnput dmu as,101rwads
Knapp, and Friend as forwards;
Baumbaugh, center; Chase and
Wise, guards; and Berker, goalie.
Norm Knapp has been the scoring
star to date and is their ace in the
Theta Chi's team includes Tdwn-
send, Hartwell and Williams, for-
wards: Howell, center: Patterson
and Earle, guar ; and Eiserman,
goalie. Hartwell, Williams and How-
ell have been the star scorers for
them and should throw the balance
in' favor of Theta Chi tonight.

International tennis has lost one I
of the most spectacular net stars
of all time with the announcement'
by Jean Borotra that he will not
be a member of the French Davis
Cup team this summer.
The 33 year old salesman of gaso-
line pumps has "decided that busi-
ness and his advancing age will not ,
permit him to spend the time that
it is necessary to devote to train-
ing to be able to participate in the
Tilden holds Edge.
Followers of the net game have,
classed Borotra as one of the out-
standing tennis players of his age,
and they remember many matches
in which he has participated, espe-
cially spectacular being the many
matches in which he opposed "Big.
Bill" Tilden. Tilden has always had
the edge over the "Bounding Bas-
que," but the enthusiasm he has
displayed and his court tactics have
won for him the sympathy of the
crowd. He is, along with Tilden, one
of the greatest showmen of inter-
national tennis. His bouncing style
of play and his cheerfulness have
made him a favorite with the fans.
Last winter, when there was a great
deal of speculation about reports
that he would leave the amateur
ranks to join the Tilden Tennis
Tours, there was much joy in tennis
circles over the prospect of a re-
newal of these great battles 'be-
tween the two old rivals. However,
Borotra decided to devote one more
year to Davis Cup competition be-
fore retiring from competition.
May Weaken French.
The passing of Borotra may pre-
sage the waning of the French star
in the Davis Cup circles, as many:
experts contend that either Great'
Britain or the United States will
win the world's most famous cup
this year. Speculation has been rife
over the possibility of Cochet turn-
ing professional soon, and with
these two of the "old guard" gone,
France would have to depend on
youngsters to defend the cup this
