Following a very unimpressive
showing against the freshman bas-
ketball team Tuesday night, the Var-
sity cagers were sent through an in-
tensive scrimmage yesterday after-
noon by Coach "Cappy" Cappon in
an effort to iron out many of the
defects brought to light by the Tes-
day workout.
Faulty passing and inaccurate
shooting marked the play of the Var-

the starting lineup remains in doubt.
Ostrander Chosen
To Captain 1933
Varsity Harriers
Robert A. Ostrander, '34, Luding-
ton, was named captain of the 1933
cross-country team in a meeting of
the letter winners Tuesday night.
Ostrander was outstanding in all
of the Michigan meets this year, be-
ing the first Wolverine to cross the
finish line in the Conference race.
He succeeds Capt. Roger S. Howell,
'33. Bill Hill is the only other letter
winner lost to the team.
The closing of the harrier season
marked the commencement of win-
ter track activities. Close to 100 men
are working out nightly in the Field
House under Coach Charlie Hoyt.
This is the biggest turnout in recent
years, and, along with the fact that
only a few men were lost to the team
by graduation, is a favorable indica-
tion of a successful season.
The track candidates are confining
their workouts mainly to condition-
ing exercises, and serious work will
not be attempted until after the
Christmas holidays. Coach Hoyt an-
nounced that the first group practice

of the season will be held Saturday,
Dec. 10, at 3 p. m. The winter track
schedule is not completed as yet, but
the first meet will not be held until
early in the second semester.

Fatalities Sh o wn
In Report For 1932
With most football schedules com-
pleted by this time, we find in the
report of the National Bureau of Cas-1
tialty and Surety, that despite thej
added safeguards in the rules, death
again took a heavy toll of football
players. The records showed that
thirty-seven succumbed to injuries,,
eleven less than the 1931 aggregat/
of fifty.
Of the thirty-seven dead, five were,
college players,.seventeen high school
players, and the remainder were

Stricter officiating an d better
coaching made the new -rules passed

ganized college and university con-
Better medical attention and stric-
ter adherence to the rules might
have avoided most of the fatalities
which resulted in high school and
sand-lot games.
Of the five college players who suc-
cumbed to football injuries, Ralph
McClure of Colorado College, whose
neck was broken in the game against
the University of Colorado, was the
only one hurt during a regularly
scheduled contest.
Each year, there are at least 400,-
000 high school boys, 50,000 college
men, and unestimated thousands
more on unorganized teams, that play
Organized professional football did

The swimming meet was a tie untilr
he last event, the relay race, whicht
was taken by Theta Chi in the new
ecord time of 47 seconds. The for-
mer record was 47.1 also by Theta
Chi made in an earlier meet this
'ear. The first race was the 25 yard 1
free style won by Haughey of PsiG
Upsilon. Townsend of Theta Chi
came in second, just ahead of Jack-c
on of Psi U. The 25 yard backstrokeI
was won by Boice, Theta Chi;c
Fischer of Psi U. was second with
Mfiller of the Thetas third. The 25-
yard breaststroke was a tie for first
between Dobson and Hartwell, the1
former of Psi Upsilon and the lat- I
ter from Theta Chi. Third place
was taken by Jennette of Theta Chi.1
Diving honors were given to Dobson,1
Psi Upsilon, who received 20 out of
four dives. Second and third places
were given to Rogers and Earle re-
spectively, both from Theta Chi. At
this point, the score was tied and
the result of the meet depended
upon the relay. Theta Chi won the
event in record tmie and as a re-
sult, won the meet and the cham-
pionship of the University. The
final score was 23-18 in favor of
Theta Chi. Dobson, Psi Upsilon, was
high scorer of the meet with 9
Theta Chi won the final game of
water polo by the close score of 1-0.
The goal was made late in the first
half by Miller, who threw the ball
over half the length of thie pool
to score the winning tally. In the
first half, Theta Chi was decidedly
better in passing and all-around
teamwork. However in the second
half, Psi Upsilon came out deter-
mined to win and managed to put
up a better fight than their ┬░oppo-
nents. Bennett, goalie for Theta Chi,
played a heads up game. There was
one moment when he held off a
heavy assault upon the goal against
three opponents. Captain Dobson of
Psi Upsilon and Captain Hartwell
and Miller of Theta Chi were the
outstanding men in the game in the
matter of offense while Bennett and
Jackson, the two goalies, also did
good defense work. Matt Mann ref-
ereed the game.
they still play under the old rules,
which permit flying wedges, and fly-

From these facts, it is obvious that
the new rules, designed to ward off
any large casualty list, cannot gain
in effectiveness unless there is closer
adherence to the rules by officials,
better medical attention, and better
