Basketball Team's New Captain And Their Sea-
son's Record in Review
FRED LEE PETOSKEY, of St. Charles, Michigan, was elected basketball
captain yesterday at a special meeting of the letter winners. Although
the announcement did not rvurprise close followers of basketball, the elec-
tion contained at least one interesting feature. Of the three sports thatr
Ted competes in, football, basketball, and baseball, the court game is the
only one that he will only have two letters in when he graduates.
As a sophomore last year, Ted received letters in football and baseball
but did not receive one in basketball. This year he has already received two
letters and has every expectation of gathering another baseball letter as he

It is also taken for granted that he
will get three next year, although
nothing is sure as injuries may wreck
a brilliant career at any time.
If these predictions are born out,
Ted will have received eight letters

Ruggedness, sheer ruggedness, is
the outstanding characteristic of the
new court leader. Petoskey is known

it.' In baseball and basketball there
is less opportunity for physical con-
tact, yet he can hold his own with-

ing Fehring whom he guarded for
part of the Purdue game here last
Monday night,
Ted can owe his basketball cap-
taincy to one sentence he spoke in
his sophomore year after he had re-
ported. for Cappon's team. He had
been out for three days and was par-
ticipating in his first scrimmage.
After playing 30 gruelling minutes of
basketball, the coaches called a halt
and made several substitutions. Cap-
pon called to Ted, "Do you want a
little rest?" The big floor guard re-
plied, "No, I'm not tired a bit."
That settled it for Cappon. Any-
one who will work that hard and
thue beg for more can have his full
backing. From then on Ted was given
special instruction during the prac-
tices by both Oosterbaan and Cap-
pon. Their admiration grew for the
"worker" as they termed him until
Moth were satisfied that he would
give Altenhof and Williamson a real
battle for a guard position this year.

A Row To Stand In First
Rank For State Title
Overwhelming the Monroe Fencing,
Club by the score of 12 to 5, the
Michigan fencing team ran its win-
ning string to seven in a row for this}
season last night at the Intramural4
building, and established itself as the
first in rank for the championship
of the state.
Three Seniors Finish
Last night also saw three seniors
take part in their last dual meet for
the Maize and Blue and their last
home appearance. Captain Jerry
Winig, Jimmy DeStefano, and J.
Mayer were those last year men.
Winig and DeStefano, both three1
year varsity award winners, contin-
ued to show the same excellent brand
of fencing that has characterized
them throughout their fencing ca-
reers here; and Mayer, a two year;
letter man, was the star of the eve-
ning with three wins in the foils and,
no losses.
DeStefano, by winning both sabre
bouts, completed a remarkable rec-
ord of not having lost a single sabre
match during the entire season. Al-
though visibly weakened by a badj
attack of influenza suffered last week,
he managed to come through both
encounters with flying colors, beating
Frost in the first, 5 points to 2, and'
De Graff in the second, 5 points to 4.
Wally Buhl of the Wolverines also'
won both his sabre bouts, each by a
5 to 4 score.
Winig Takes Two
Winig, although losing two out of
three of his foils matches, came back
to take two encounters in the epee,

Garner was sick. He had the flu
and could not shake it off. For a
while he would not let anybody in on
it except Williamson and his Alpha
Sig fraternity brothers. Finally Cap-
pon got wind of it. But Garner would
not listen to being taken out of the
lineup. He continued to play in spite
of all that was said. Of course his
game sufferec from it, but eight
points, for instance, in the Purdue
game proved very valuable. His 104
points for the season for third place
in the league is the biggest single
reason for Michigan's success. He

In seven years of basketball Alten-
hof has compiled a remarkable rec-

Michigan, he has never been forced
out of the game by committing four

ball game after seven years of Var-
sity and high school competition,
Ray was forced out of the game on
personals. A truly remarkable record
for anyone to compile, especially a
guard. He has probably committed
less fouls per game than any other
man who ever played for Michigan.
Led by the seldom-fouling Alten-
hof, Michigan committed only 98
personals this year, the lowest total
of any team in the league. Last year
the Maize and Blue team committed
105 personals. Michigan made 52 per
cent of their foul shots this season,
76 out of 145 which is slightly higher
than last year with its 51 per cent, 77
out of 149. The difficulty in connect-
ing from the foul line proved the un-
doing in at least two of the four de-
feats this year.
In addition to Petrie, Garner,
Altenhof, and Eveland, the seniors
who received letters; Petoskey, Allen,
Plummer, Teitlebaum, and Oliver
were awarded 'M's' for their play this
