IN SELECTING Brown over Colgate
we are throwing to the winds the
a d v a n c e dope of comparative
strengths. The "Red Raiders" have
piled up 243 points to their oppo-
nents' 0 in eight games..
In the last five of their eight
battles Colgate has gained 1,344 to
203 yards from the line of scrim-
mage. They have made 84 first
downs to 15 for the opposition.
Brown has scored 81 points to 21
and have made 640 yards to 456 for
their seven-game opposition. Theiri
opponents have made 44 first downs
against their own 40 andahave out-
gained them through the air.
Brown's opposition has been harder
than Colgate's but the Red Raiders
have played N. Y. U., Penn State,
Lafayette, and Syracuse. The Bears
have met Columbia, Harvard, Holy
Cross, and Yale.
Both teams had an off day last
Saturday and are primed to clash
today. Our only excuse for the se-
lection is that we are in the throes
of hunches and are abiding by them.

into camp today in Seattle and win
the Pacific Coast championship and
receive the Rose Bowl game as the
western team. The Huskies are out
after this game but we believe that
the Golden Bear power plays through
the line will win out in the end.
STAN FAY and Harry Kipke have
a great deal in common. The
Coach played three years at Mich-
igan without playing in a losing
game and the 1933 gridiron captain
has played two years without a de-
feat. In the Ohio State game last
year Fay was on the bench and did
not get in,

first time since the
point-a- minuute te;;
years that two
players have been
on three confer-
ence-title teams in
successive years..

ed Michigan's most

ball games be won?
Sometimes he won games with
passes and kicks as against Purdue
three years ago. He was sent into
the game, shot two passes that scored
and successfully converted the points
after each one, after the Boilermak-j
ers had earned a 13-0 lead at half-
time. Against Minnesota it was his
steady toe that won for Michigan.
Chicago remembers his runback of a
punt in the first quarter as the play
that beat them although he added
another six points with an end run
in the last quarter.
All in all there is not a man in the
Conference today that has won as
many games for his team as Newman
and how else should a most valuable
man be selected? Without him Mich-
igan would be a losing team but with
him they won repeatedly.
There has been a great deal of talk
recently that the Chicago trophy is

Lead Colgate In Bid For Eastern Title

When the two mighty elevens of Colgate and Brown meet this afternoon in a contest which will prob-
ably spell the first defeat of the season for one of them, one more team will be eliminated in the question of
national champions. The "Red Raiders" of Colgate will present a light but brilliant line led by Capt. Bob
Smith, who plays at guard, and Bart Ellis, tackle. In the backfield Charles Soleau directs the smooth-
working Maroon outfit from his post at quarterback. Colgate is unbeaten anG unscored upon this fall, and
it is upon these stars of offense and defense that Colgate depends to keep her record clear.

McLaughry, in fact, has gone. a long

Kerr, at Colgate, uses the stand-

closely if they expect to see just who
is carrying the ball for the Kerrmen.

and the Dixie series, is turning his
hand to winter baseball.
His idea istto form a winter base-

would serve the double purposedof
training for the regular season and
give the competitive spirit that comes
from playing in a league.
Engel said he has been promised
support from Marianna, Panama

Pensacola and Tallahassee also are

Being Persistent
Helps Big Rambler
Guard At' School
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Nov. 23.-(P)
-Notre Dame has reason to be
thankful that Norm Greeney, big
right guard on the Ramblers this
year, is a persistent fellow.
Had he taken the first "no" for
an answer he would not even have
become a student at Notre Dame,
to say nothing of becoming one of
the star football players there.
His application to enter the school
was rejected when he first attempted
to enroll.
But return of his application be-
cause registration was closed failed
to discourage him. He took a train
to South Bend, and spent two weeks
arguing with all the officials, before
he finally obtained admittance.
Intramural activities in the wo-
men's athletic division will feature
swimming, with bowling and rifle
shooting as subsidiary sports. The
interclass activity will be in basket-
ball for the indoor season.
Michigan's "B" court squad will have
two games this year, Dec. 3 and 8
against Turnverein and Windsor.

New Ruling On
Metric System
Made By A.A.U.
Michigan Sports Not To
Be Aflected By Change
In Trac Measure
Action taken by the Amateur Ath-
letic Union in adopting the metric
system as their standard will not af-
fect the University of Michigan, it
was learned yesterday. Michigan be-
longs to the National Collegiate Ath-
letic Associatoin and, with other
members of that organization, is in-
dependent of the rulings of the A.
A. U. However, should the N. C. A. A.
at its meeting in December adopt a
similar proposition, the University
would necessarily fall into line.
The change from the English sys-
tem of yards and miles to the metric
system would involve the expendi-
ture of large sums of money by prac-
tically every athletic organization in
the country, it was pointed out by
Charlie Hoyt and Matt Mann, Michi-
gan athletic coaches. According to
Hoyt, Wolverine track coach, Michi-
gan would be no exception in this
regard. Both the outdoor track and
the cinder path in the Field House
would have to be considerably re-
vamped to meet with the new speci-
fications. Another expensive job
would be the reconstruction of the
swimming pool, Matt Mann said. In
the opinion of both men the A. A. U.
heads did not consider the difficulty
of adapting athletic plans to the re-
quirements of the metric system of
measurement when they made the
ew ring.
NEW YORK, Nov. 23.-()-The
Amateur Athletic Union has gone on
the metric standard.
Without a dissenting voice, the
ruling body of amateur athletics in
this country has scrapped the time-
honored yardage system in favor of
meters and kilometers as the stand-
ard measurement for all track and
feld events.
This change voted yesterday at the
closing session of the A. A. O.'s forty-
fourth annual convention, will be ef-
fective Jan. 1 and will apply only to
track and field sports.
Organizations affiliated with the
A. A. U. are expected to follow that
body's lead, although there may be
adverse reaction from the national
collegiate A. A., which is understood
to be opposed to the change. The in-
tercollegiate A. A. A. A. A., at its last
annual meeting, however, favored it
and announced it was ready to ap-
