Cappon Expected to Start Usual
Line-up in Game on Field
House Floor.
Meanwell's Crew Determined to
Get Revenge for Early
Season Loss.
By Sheldon C. Fullerton.
Coach Walter Meanwell, one of
the country's foremost exponents
of the cage sport, will lead his Wis-
consin quintet against Michigan at
the field house at 7:30 o'clock Mon-
day night.
Already victorious over the Badg-
ers in the first Western Conference
game of the season by a 24-18
score, the Wolverines will be fight-
ing tomorrow night to keep its
place as high as possible in the Big
Ten standings. At the same time
the Cardinal five, a disappointment
to Meanwell this season, will be out
for revenge against the Wolverines,
and determined to take its last few
games in an effort to climb as high
as possible in the Conference race.
Recalls Game in '29
Wisconsin's visit here tomorrow
night recalls their trip to Ann Ar-
bor in the last game of the 1928-29
season, with the Big Ten title hing-
ing on the outcome of the game.
On that memorable occasion, be-
fore one 'of the largest audiences
that ever jammed its way into the
huge field house, the Wolverines
came through with a brilliant tri-
umph to bring the Maize and Blue
up to a tie with the Badgers for
Conference honors.
It is possible that Coach "Cappy"
Cappon may try to insert some of
iis substitutes in-
to the Wisconsin
game in an effort
to get a line on
them f o r next
season, but it is
ful if the regular
starting combin-
ation w ill be
broken up at leastr
during the early
stages o f t he
game. Norm Dan-
iels, who is right eLWAER MuWEwI.
in the center ofM
the race for Conference scoring
honors, will be getting one of his
last chances to add to his point to-
tal on the local court, while Eve-
land will share the forward posi-
tions with him. Garner is still the
first choice for, center, with Weiss
and Williamson firmly installed a
the starting guards.
Meanwhile Undecided
The aggregation that Coach
Meanwell will toss in against the
Maize and Blue is still unannounced
but it is probable that Captain
Mary Steen will pair with Ray
Wichman at the forward posts, with
Roy Oakes jumping center, and
Doug Nelson and Ken Ryckman
playing the guard positions. It is a
possibility that Harry Griswold will
see service at either a forward or
-enter positio.n In the last Mich-
igan game Steen was one of the high
point scorers for the Badgers, and
it is probable that he will draw Ivy
Willia mson against him tomorrow
The game will be the second last
of the year, only Ohio State re-
maining on the Wolverine cage
schedule after tomorrow.
Princeton University is consider-
ing H. O. Crisler of Minnesota as Al

Starwas to Lead Delegation
State A.A.U. Tourney
Late in March.


Jack Starwas will lead a delega-
tion of boxers in the University to
the elimination series for the State
A.A.U. boxing championships in
about three weeks, Coach Let Phil-
bin announced yesterday.
Three fighters have excellent
chances to survive the first few
rounds he said,rSlaterhLarson, and
Berkley. Jack recently won the
Golden Gloves tourney in Detroit
and is in line to represent eastern
Michigan in the finals. He stands
six feet two inches and weighs
about 204 pounds.
Larson Will Compete.
Larson is a lightweight, but a
newcomer to amateur circles in
the state. Dr. May said that he
was one of the best prospects in
that weight to fight on the campus
in recent years. However, Larson
did not enter the Golden Gloves
tournament and will have to fight
in the pre-tournament eliminations
in order to be selected to represent
this part of the state.
Berkley, a middleweight, has yet
to be reinstated before he will be
allowed to enter this competition.
If he is, it is practically certain
that he will go to the finals as hie
is a rugged fighter and forces the
going all the way.
Starwas Holds Title.
Jack Starwas won the light-
heavyweight title last year but is
not certain whether he will defend
his crown this year or npt. He is
not enrolled in the University at
present but would be eligible. His
condition will determine his de-
cision todefend the title and at
present he is not in very good
If Slater wins the State title he
will continue on to the National

Squash racquets is the next fac-
ulty sport in order on the Intra-
mural winter calendar. Entries for
this event are now open and play is
expected to start in another week.
'Those desiring to enter should
phone the Intramural Building at
once and leave their names.
Last year's champion, Bob Angell
will not be able to compete this
year since he is away on leave of
absence, but the list of expected
contestants contains several exper-
ienced players. Among these are
Matt Mann, Preston James, Dan
Webtser, Ernie Smith, Blackett,
Niehuss, John McMahon, Harry
Kipke, Ben Wheeler, Eaton, Harry
Tillotson, Chuck Hoyt, Bill West,
Dobson, Jack Blott, Earl Riskey,
Baker, Cissell, and Ken Doherty.
With such a field of squash en-
thusiasts the play is sure to be full
of interest and hold many a tight
game in it before the finals are run
Fraternities to Begin
Foul Shooting Contest
This coming Tuesday and Wed-
nesday, March 1 and 2, the annual
fraternity foul shooting contest is
scheduled at the Intramural build-
ign. Last year some 300 men took
part in this event as each house
turned out with quite a few men,
and entries are now open to pro-
moteya largerfield if possible for
this year's competition.
Alpha Omega and Chi Psi tied
for first place last year, each fra-
ternity scoring 186 out of a possible
250 points. This set a record that
will be hard to better this year.

of Hill, Minnesota, and Ponto, of
Michigan, the former taking indi-
vidual honors, 70.5 to 67. Simmons,
Minnesota, was a close third with
66 points.
4Rollins was the high point gath-
erer of the meet, accounting for
224 of the Gophers' 1,004 points.
The Stenberg twins, Ellsworth,
Ponto, and Lassila gathered most
of the points for the Wolverines.
In the first event of the program,
the high bar, the Wolves were hope-
lessly outclassed by the superior
work of the Gopher trio, the latter
taking the 'first three places.
Summary: high bar--Hill, (1),
Marti (2), Simmons (3), all of Min-
nesota; side horse-Zapffe, Minn.
1), A. Steinberg, Mich. (2), Hill,
Minn. (3) ; flying rings-Ellsworth,

bling-Hill, Minn. (1), Ponto, Mich.

Capt. Toe Sharpe of the 1931 Ala-
bama Crimson tide will return to
Tuscaloosa next year as assistant
football coach.

Architects and Engineers have wonj
but one game apiece to stay there.
The latter hold the edge and undis-
puted last place now by virtue of
losing three easy games to the
Mathematics squad, 15-9, 15-13,
Probably the best game of the
week, at least from the standpoint
of energy and spirit, was that be-
tween the Army and the Architects.
The officers came out on top with
scores of 15-3, 15-7, 15-13.
This puts the standings: Chem-
ists six and one; Lits five and one;
Math four and three; Army two
and five; Architects one and four;
and the Engineers one and five;
wins and losses respectively.
