has been a difficult one to hoe
this year. He has made a set of suc-
cessful cagers out of a more or less
inexperienced and uncertain bunch
of ,aspirants.
fI was not upset by the showing
of the boys prior to the opening of
the Conference games," he says.
"They just weren't hitting the basket.
The floor work was good enough."
Cappon himself played eight years
of basketball in high school and col-
lege, and is in a position to know.
He got started when he and his
friends formed a club in eighth grade
in Holland, Mich., and he's still with
the game. He played guard on the
Maize and Blue Varsity.
As a gridder, he was extremely ver-
satile, and tried his hand at most of
the important posts - end, tackle,
fullback, and halfback.
Though a coach in two major
sports, he confesses to more interest
in the administrative side of ath-
letics. "I came here when Tad Wei-
man left his executive position, and
then when Veenker left, I took over
basketball. Yost was the man instru-
mental in bringing me here," he said.
His team this season hs come
along just about as he expected it
would. He expected about eight vic-
tories to four defeats, or perhaps
nine to three. "I'm still hoping it'll
be nine to three," he remarked.
"The injuries of Plummer and Al-
tenhof are a real drawback. One
would not have been so bad, but one
righton top of another leaves us in
a hole. None of the substitute guards
have had experience, and I had to
use- Petrie at forward."..
Coach Cappon is not tog, optimistic
about next year's chances for success.
"There will be only two men left,
Plummer and Petoskey. All the rest
have had practically no experience,
and it will be a pretty green outfit."
Cappon had other hobbies besides
his athletic interests. He likes to
work jig-saw puzzles, play bridge,
and keep up onbcurrent fads.n'But
at least it can be said I don't like
gardening," he maintains.
And then again, when he was in
school here, he won the Conference
scholastic medal in 1924. He's very
modest about it, however. He says,
"It's just because there were a lot of
bums in my classes."
MINNESOTA objected strenuously
to Referee Clarence Traub, who
handles the second Wolverine-
Gopher hockey match. They thought
that Fox, who worked the first game,
was satisfactory.
In defense of Traub we might out-
line his own career. He has had
three seasons with the old Detroit
Cougars as a player. He was with
the Chicago Blackhawks before that.
He came east from the Saskatoon
Sheiks along with George Hay,
Honey Walker, and other veterans.
This season he has been handling
National and International League
games, and his refereeing is well
thought of by the league heads.
T HE DEATH of a varsity diver from
Rutgers University after he had
struck his head on the diving board
while doing a half-gainer has stirred
considerable feeling among swimming
enthusiasts and coaches throughout
the whole country.
The sentiment against such dives,
compulsory for all low-board com-
petition, is strong, and it is extreme-
ly likely that the half-gainer, or
Dutchman as it is sometimes known,
and the back-spring-forward one-
and-a-half will be removed as com-
pulsory dives at the next meeting of
the swimming committee of N. C. A.
RAY ALTENHOF may not have
ended his basketball career here
yet, judging from Cappon's state-
ment yesterday. For a while it looked
as if the Gary star had already

played his last game for the Maize
and Blue.
But Cappy said that it depended
now upon how Ray felt. And Ray
feels great. Probably never in his
whole career has he wanted to play
more than he does against Purdue
Monday night.
SWIMMING FANS will get a taste
of real championship swimming
tonight in the meet between North-
western and Michigan. Several rec-
ords are under fire before the guns
of star natators.

Reserved Seats Available
At 4) Cents; General
Admission Is 25 Cents
In top condition after a week of
intensive practice, Michigan swim-
mers tapered off yesterday with a
light work-out in final preparation
for tonight's meet with Northwestern
in the Intramural Pool.
Reserved seat tickets for the meet
were half sold at 5 p. m. yesterday,
but some are still available at Harry
Tillotson's office in the Administra-
tion Building. General admission
ickets will be available at the door
before the meet, which is scheduled
for 8 p. m.
Last Home Meet
Four Wolverine regulars will com-
pete for the last time in the home
pool tonight. Capt. Jimmy Schmieler
will be leading his national cham-
pions for the last time before they
enter the Big Ten and national
meets. Other swimmers who will not
return next year are Frank Kennedy,
distance star; Fred Fenske, sprinter
and fancy diver; and Dan Marcus, a
The feeling among the Wolverines
as they paddled about the pool yes-
terday was that the meet would be
close, much closer than the first en-
gagement with the Wildcats when
Michigan overwhelmed them 49 to
Schmieler went so far as to predict
that the meet might be won or lost
by a single point.
One Lineup Change
The entire squad is on its toes.
They feel that if they can win to-
night's meet they will be virtually
certain of the Conference title, since
the Wildcats are the only team con-
ceded a chance to upset the present
title holders.
Coach Matt Mann has announced
only one change in the lineup from
the team that trimmed Northwestern
two weeks ago. Dan Marcus and
Henry Kanienski will swim the 100-
yard free-style so that Bob Renner,
who won the event at Evanston, can
save himself for the two relays.
Wolve Fencers
Meet Spa rtans
Here Totht
Hoping to repeat its victory of
earlier in the season, the Michigan
fencing team will meet the Mich-
igan State team at 7:30 p. m. tonight
in the Intramural building.
This meet will be the hardest that
the Wolverines have had so far this
season, according to the latest re-
ports. The Spartan team is out to re-
venge their defeat last January and
are determined to take this meet.
They will bring the strongest foils
men in the state, Stonex and Glass,
who, in the last meet, each took two
out of their three foils bouts by large
margins. Stonex is the star of the
squad and performs exceedingly well
in the foils and the sabre.
Jimmy DeStefano, although slight-
ly weakened by the attack of influ-
enza that kept him from taking part
in the meet earlier this week with
the Detroit Turnverein Club, will be
ready to show his stuff. The Wolve-
rines, however, will be badly handi-
capped by the loss of Al Little, a Var-
sity sabre man, who became scho-
lastically ineligible. His place will be
taken by Wally Buhl, a sophomore,

who has been coming along fairly
well in the past two meets. Merriman
and Nahrgang will split up two of the
epee bouts while Captain Winig will
take the other two.

Second Game Of Series
Is Set For Tomorrow
Evening At 8:45
Marquette's tiger - striped sextet}
took a 5-1 beating from Michigan's
hocket outfit here last night in a
game at the Varsity Arena. The Mil-
waukee outfit battled through sixty
minutes of play, but failed to show
talent sufficient to stop the Wol-
verines, even though the Maize and
Blue did not play above average form.
Play Again Saturday
Michigan and Marquette will slash
again tomorrow night at the Varsity
Arena. The game time has been;
changed to 8:45 p. m. for that occa-
sion so that spectators of the basket-
ball game will have time to witness
the whole of the ice contest.
The result was an exhibition of
fair hockey interspersed with flashes
of excellent play, although Marquette
seldom sparkled. Reid and Crossman!
starred for the Wolves with two goals
and one assist apiece. Sherf account-
ed for one goal as he opened the
scoring after only four minutes of
play with a long shot from the left
which took the upper right corner
of the goal. Goalie Thomson failed
to touch the shot.
Aside from the brief excitement of;

Pair Of Meets
Michigan's wrestlers will make
their final bid of the season for an
even break in dual competition when
they met the Northwestern squad to-
night at Patton Gymnasium, there.'
The Wildcats have suffered only
one defeat to date, losing to Illinois.
They have defeated Ohio State and
Chicago. The Wolverines have split
their meets against Big Ten oppo-
nents, downing Ohio, but losing to
the National Championship Indiana
Jimmy Landrum, Art' Mosier, Ed.
Wilson, Harvey Bauss, and John
Spoden will occupy their customary
places in the Maize-and-Blue lineup.
In the 155-pound match Mosier will
go against Lowrey, Northwestern
captain, while Bauss is 'slated to
clash with Spencer, runner-up in the
Big Ten meet last year, at 175.
Thomas Recovered
Captain Blair Thomas, fully re-
covered from his illness, is to wrestle
at 135; with Joe Oakley dropping
back to the 125-pound class to clash
with Seifert, Wildcat star. Saul
Freedman, who made a favorable
showing in his initial start as a
Michigan wrestler last Saturday, will
get the call at 145.
On Saturday the team will uieet
aonther strong aggregation in the
Chicago Maroons. The Midway boys
claim to have one of the best squads.
of their wrestling history. They have
lost one match, that to Northwestern,
but have held the powerful Illinois
squad to a tie.

Twenty-two athletes, engaging i
their last intensive practice sessic
of the current hardwood season, wer
sent through a scrimmage drill yep
terday by Coach Cappon in prepara
tion for the final games of the sea
son against Indiana Saturday an
Purdue Monday.
To finish the schedule with a bur
of speed and power is uppermost i
the minds of the squad, and the mo
spirited practices of the whole se:
son seem to have been packed int
the current week.
In spite of the loss of Al Plummc
and the injury of Ray Altenhc
Coach Cappon is confident of tl
ability of his proteges to con
through and chalk up the final tv
games in the win column.

For T-ri-Meet
Eighteen Wolverine tracksters will
leave Ann Arbor at 5:15 p. m. today
for their invasion of Champaign,
where they will meet Illinois and
Ohio State in a triangular meet to-
morrow afternoon.
The Hoytmen are slated to spend
tonight in Chicago, going on to their
destination in the morning. They will
also return to spend Saturday night
in Chicago. Travel is by train instead'
of auto as was previously expected.
Relays Are Objective
The chief objective the coming
week-end will be to win the two re-
lays, mile and two-mile, each off
which will give the winner 10 points.

the meet and if they win both they
are about certain to capture first
honors. In last year's meet with the
same teams, Michigan took 56 points
to 36 for Illinois, the runner-up.
Hoyt has not fully decided on the
make-up of his relay teams, but if
Ellerby is in condition, he, with Cap-
tain DeBaker, Allen and Turner, will
run the mile event. Turner, Lemen,
Braden and either DeBaker or Allen
will make up the two-mile team.
In the other events, Ward and
Kemp will run the dash; Howell and
Childs, mile; Hill and McMillan, two
mile; and Egleston and Pantlind the
hurdles. Ward and Moisio will work
in the high jump and Blumenfeld in
the shot put with Damm, with per-
haps Ward assisting him.
Two Events Lacking
Two events which have been on
the Wolverine indoor program so far
this year will be missing Saturday.
They are the 440 and 880 yard runs.
However, these events will not re-
lieve the quarter and half-milers, as
the extra relay will keep them busy.
Light warm-up practice was held
last night at the Field House as the
tracksters went through their final
drill of the week. The freshmen held
the limelight as they ran off events
in their telegraphic meet with the
lini and Buckeye plebes.
