For Conference
Hlonors Today
Indiana Favored To Win
Fifth Consecutive Title
At Lafayette
Competition Strong
Wolverine Squad Of Six
Conceded Outside Chance
For Victory
With the finish of the Big Ten hill
and dale championship this morning,
a question of supremacy in cross-
country teams will be decided. In-
diana, out after its fifth Conference
championship, is virtually conceded
first place. Illinois with a strong vet-
eran squad expects to take second
place; Purdue with another strong
outfit expects to take second place;
Minnesota, with their strongest team
in some time also expects to take
second place; the question seems to
be whether Michigan is supposed to
be among the spectators or in the
meet at all, for that matter.
The Michigan squad, composed of
Captain Howell, his brother Rod, Bill
Hill, Bob Ostrander, and Dick Mc-
Manus will undoubtedly give the sec-
ond place winner a battle. Handi-
capped as they are by "Doc" Howell's
leg injury, the Maize and Blue har-
riers should at least be counted as
running in the meet.
Since the Wolves' surprising win in
the triangular meet with Illinois and
Ohio State two weeks ago their stock
has gone up considerably in local
Coach Charlie Hoyt gives his squad
an outside chance to win and from
him this statement is a boost of the
highest order. Hoyt also gave Pur-
due a boost in saying that regardless
of their poor showing so far this year
they have a good squad and will help
to make the going tough in the meet.
Indiana Favored
Of the other teams entered in the
run, Indiana looks like the best bet
to cop the championship. They have
three stars from last year in Brock-
smith, Watson, and Hornbostel.
These three men finished first, third
and sixth respectively in last year's
meet. Their fourth man of promise
is Neese, a newcomer who has turned
in good performances all year. Un-
less the Hoosiers' team scoring is
chopped up by some of the other in-,
dividual stars they are practically
certain of the championship.
Illinois will enter a team that took
fourth place last year, their squad
finishing in the eleventh to four-
teenth places. Minnesota, under
Sherm Finger, with Herrick, Bremer,
Seiler and Moore showing greatly im-
proved form, have their best chance
of a good showing since 1927.
Michigan Has Chance
Even with all these strong teams
entered, Michigan should have as
good a chance of placing in the
money as any of the others, and
probably a better chance than some
of the squads. If they can succeed in
bunching their men closely in any
of the first places they may manage
to eke out a victory over the much
touted Hoosiers.
This meet is a special feature in
the celebration of Dad's Day at Pur-
due University. The plans to erect
temporary stands at the finish line
on Stuart field will enable the spec-
tators to see the expected close

Title Aspirations
With Colgate and Brown meeting
aturday there is certain to be re-
'uction in the contenders for na-
Cional football honors, among the
Eastern teams. Both outfits have
come through undefeated and un-
tied to date and the meeting Satur-
day promises to be a battle royal
with the betting about even.
Southern California, who won the
mythical national championship last
year in the Rose Bowl game, after
losing to St. Mary's Giant Killers
early in the season, remains unde-
feated to date but with games
against Washington on Thanksgiv-
ing Day and Notre Dame on Dec. 10,
to say nothing of Army on Nov. 16,
they should have a tough time keep-
ing their slate clean.
Centenary in the south and Michi-
gan in the middle west are in the
same boat with games Saturday
against foes who are traditionally
tough. The Wolves will be fighting
for a Big Ten Title as well as na-
tional recognition against Minnesota
while Centenary meets Arkansas.

portunity in recent years to capture t
this season's Big Ten hockey chain-
pionship from their bitter rivals, i
Minnesota. With the opening prac- it
tice game still two weeks away,;
Coach Eddie Lowery is holding night-
ly practices and receiving considera-
ble satisfaction from the way hisI
stars are rounding into shape.
For the first string forward wall
Lowery has co-captains Emmie Reid
and Keith Crossman, playing left!
wing and center forward, respective-
ly. To this fast skating pair will be
added Johnny Sherf, at right wing.
Sherf Is Fast
Sherf already has the reputation1
of being by far the fastest man on
the squad and, according to Lowery,
should prove a tower of strength on
offense. Though he is only a sopho-
more he comes from Calumet, where
good hockey players are common,
and has had plenty of experience in!
fast company.
Another native of the iron coun-
try, Johnny Jewell, likewise a sopho-
more, is slated to occupy the goal
position left vacant by the gradua-
tion of Tompkins. Although Tomp-
kins was a star in his own right,
Lowery promises that Jewell will off-
set his loss.
Defense Also Strong
Defensively Lowery's 1932-23 edi-
tion seems to be of the same caliber
as the forward wall. Bill Williams
and Neil Gabler have the call over
the other candidates for the present
at least. Williams was a regular last
year, while Gabler's may be a new
face to many student hockey fans.
He starred in the 1927 season and
was captain-elect for '28 but did not
return to school in that year. His
return this fall was most pleasing to
Lowery who characterizes him as
having the experience that most col-
lege players lack.
Ted Chapman, who is out for foot-
ball will probably give Williams a
stiff battle for the right defense po-
sition. Mark Coventry and Tom
Stuart will also be available for de-
fense work, while Avon Artz, Walter
Curtis and George David will com-
pose a second forward line. Lowery
hopes to strengthen the team's only
weak spot before the first game on
Nov. 28 or 29 by finding a couple
substitute goalie.

Since our sport editor is out of
town, ready to watch Michigan win
the Conference Football Title at Min-
neapolis this afternoon, we have
taken the liberty of substituting in
the matter of predictions.
Our Wolverines rate as the favor-
ites by approximately two touch-
downs. Severe weather in the Gopher
town may keep the score down but
the Wolves should come home the
Picking the remainder of the Big
Ten games is easy. Northwestern,
Purdue, Ohio State, and Wisconsin
should have little difficulty in turn-
ing in victories.
In the East the Yale-Harvard
game is the hardest one to choose.
Playing a hunch will make Yale our
choice, although their record is in-
ferior to that of the Crimson eleven.
The Eli has been coming along strong
of late however.
Another difficult game to predict
is the California-Stanford battle on
the West Coast. The edge goes to
Stanford, but the score, whether a
high one or low, should be quite close.

of the greatest games in the long

undefeated eleven tackles a Crimson
eleven of great potential power in a
game which places the Boilermakers'
