Hockey Squad
Practices For
Chatham Game
Crossman And Reid Are
Still Below Top Form
Of Last Season
Sherf's Play Faulty
Chatham Will Have Strong
Attack Against Icemen
In Next Contest
Correcting early-season faults in
the form shown by the Wolverine
sextet against the White Star A. C.
outfit in the opener here Tuesday
night is the task of Coach Ed Low-
rey. Next Tuesday's fixture in the,
Coliseum here will present the strong
Chatham, Ontario aggregation op-
posing the Michigan team. Last
year, they held a decided edge over
the Maize and Blue in the season
Chatham will again be powerful,
and, if they follow the precedent set
last season, will play some rough
hockey. Miehigan, on last Tuesday's
performance, twill have plenty of
improving to do if they expect to
enter the contest on even terms.
Crossman Below Form
Crossman, despite his success in!
scoring the two goals which defeat-
ed the White Stars, is below last
year's mid-season form. Emmy
Reid, left wing and the other co-
captain of the Wolves is perceptibly
slower than he was in 1931-2, but
more practice will probably speed
him up.
Johnny Sherf, sophomore member
of the -forward trio, still has several
faults to correct. He has a tendency
to stay too long offside after the op-
position has gotten possession of the
puck. Thus he is late in getting' back
for defense work. Once there, his
checking is good, but his tendency
to pull toward the center seems to
disorganize the forward line of de-

On Basketball Tickets
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Dec. 1.-
(Special)-Basketball ticket prices
have been slashed from 25 to 40 per
cent for the 1932-33 season at the
University of Minnesota. General ad-
mission to non-conference games will
be 55 cents and reserved 75 cents.
The prices for Conference games will

for reserved seats. These prices in-
clude the federal amusement tax.

Lack Of Money To
Curtail Swimming
At Big Ten Schools
Announcement that at least five,
perhaps six Big Ten schools will not
have Varsity swimming teams this
winter has caused Coach Matt Mann
to look forward to the Conference
meeting at Chicago tomorrow with
unusual concern. The* schools that
have decided to drop swimming are
Indiana, Purdue, Wisconsin, Ohio,
and Illinois. It is probable that Iowa
also will not have a team.
At Saturday's meeting representa-
tives of the various schools will ar-
range the schedules in all the minor
winter sports. Those representing
Michigan will probably be Athletic
Director Fielding H. Yost, Coach
Franklin Cappon and Matt Mann. At
this meeting there will very likely
appear the true state of the BigTen
treasuries, which admittedly are in
a bad state.
It is probable that financial con-
ditions, besides cutting down the
number of competing teams in swim-
ming, will also decidedly limit the
number of trips the squads will take.
Dick Degener, Michigan's premier
diving ace and winner of third place
on the tenth Olympics, has tenta-
tively acecpted an invitation to dive
in an exhibition in Florida during
the Christmas holidays.
The meet, which will take place in
Miami, is sponsored by the Women's
Swimming Association. The sponsors
hav asked Degener and Herman
Reigler of Princton to give a diving
exhibition during the last three days
of December. Degener has been prac-
ticing very often this fall and is at
the top of his form, as his work at
the Intramural pool yesterday dem-
Coach Matt Mann has uncovered
a freshman diver who should be a
star in his own right in a year or so,

holds the Indiana-Kentucky title in
his event. He comes from Indian-
Babe Herman Is Traded
To Cubs For Four Men
CINCINNATI, O., Dec 1.-(/P)-
Sidney Weil, president of the Cin-
cinnati Reds, announced tonight that
Babe Herman, his hard-hitting right
fielder, has been traded to the Chi-
cago Cubs for four players and a
cash consideration.
The four players who will come to
Cincinnati are Bob Smith, veteran
pitcher; Johnny Moore, outfielder;
Lance Richbourg, outfielder, and
Rollie Hemsley, catcher.
Freshman Cagers
Play Well Against
Varsity; Ford Stars
Coach Ray Fisher will have a fair-
ly good freshman basketball squad
after the last cut to take place this
week. The coaches were pleased with
the showing of the yearlings against
the Varsity, last Tuesday, and expect
to have a better than ordinary frosh
squad before the season is over. The
squad performed well as a unit
against the Varsity in a 20-minute
scrimmage with only one outstand-
ing man, Ford of Detroit, a forward.
His all-around splendid floor work
and point-gathering p 1 e a s e d the
coaches. Out of the eight points
made by the fresh~ien, Ford con-
tributed six.

Big Ten Teams

Seven Backs And Three
Linemen Gain Positions
On Mythical Honor Team
CHICAGO, Dec. 1.-(P)-The boys
"who carried the mail" were recog-
nized as the most valuable players in
the Big Ten football camps with but
three exceptions this year.
Each team named its most valu-
able player at the end of the cam-
paign with the result that seven
backfield stars were selected. The
remaining trio was made up of a
tackle, center and guard.
The selections for each team:
Illinois, Gil Berry, halfback.
Michigan, Harry Newman, quarter-
Wisconsin, Mickey McGuire, half-
Purdue, Roy Horstmann, fullback.
Northwestern, Pug Rentner, half-
Chicago, William Cassels, tackle.
Minnesota Roy Oen, center.
Iowa, Joe Laws, fullback.
Indiana, John Keekich, guard.
Ohio State, Lew Hinchman, half-
Berry, Newman, Horstmann and
Hinchmann won berths on the All-
Conference team picked for the As-
sociated Press by coaches.
Melniker Adds New Title
To His X-Country Record
Albert Melniker, last year's inde-
pendent cross - country champion,
successfully d e f e n d e d his title
Wednesday over the mile and a half
course. Melniker, who is also the
1932 all-campus title-holder, was
timed ,in 7:54, followed by T. F.
Smith and John Roberts who fin-
ished second and third.
The team championship was won
by the Humpty-Dumpties of which
Melniker and Roberts are members.
This group also took fourth place
which gave them a total of 8 points
and a comfortable margin over the
Foresterswho finished second with 17
points. The Fox Hounds pressed the
Foresters closely but finished third
with 20 points.
Touch Football Teams
To Play In Final Game
Independent touch football teams
will wind up the season Saturday
afternoon at 2:30 when the Untouch-
ables play the Foresters for the title.
The game is scheduled for Ferry
Field. In reaching the finals, the
Untouchables were forced to play off
a deadlock with the Dark Horses,
their first game resulting in a score-
less tie. A second game between the
teams was won by the finalists, 17
to 15.
Officials for the contest are to be
W. Merrill, Referee, C. Friend, Um-
pire, and T. Prouse, Head Linesman.
Speedball Champions
To Defend Title Today
Alpha Kappa Lambda, three time
champions in interfraternity speed-
ball, is to defend its title this after-
noon at South Ferry Field. Their op-
ponents will be Theta Xi, which de-
feated Delta Sigma Phi, 8-3 yester-
day to become the finalist. Alpha
Kappa Lambda, a fraternity that has'
long been a power in intramural ath-
letics and now holds the athletic cup,
is favored to win over Theta Xi al-
though the latter team is expected
to give the defending champions a
hard game.

Woman Wins Place On 1
Polo Team At State

From the
By John Thomas
WE TALKED to Yost just before
W he boarded the train for Chicago
yesterday. At that time it looked
very doubtful whether Michigan
would go to the Rose Bowl for the
January 2 game.
He expressed considerable doubt
as to whether the Rose Bowl com-
mittee would leave the invitation
open until Saturday. He had pre-
viously, early yesterday afternoon,
been in communication with the
committee and at the conclusion of
the phone call 'he did not have that
wide, happy smile that has adorned
his face for the last week.
. .
FROM AN unofficial source we find
that only eight votes were cast
in the straw-vote. Because of this
Professor French, President of the
Board of the Big Ten, could not
guarantee the West Coast that the
Conference would allow Michigan to
go, and it is this answer that is be-
lieved to be the reason for the doubt
that the Rose Bowl committee would
keep the invitation open.
*d .
THIS STRAW VOTE did not do
Michigan's cause any good as
far as the opinion of the other fac-
ulty members were concerned. Some
of them may have felt that it was
rushing matters to ask them for an
opinion before they convened in the
regular meeting tomorrow.
HOWEVER EVEN if Michigan
should not go to the coast this
year, it seems imminent that the
Conference rule will be set aside.
Like China, the Big Ten has built a
wall around itself and has crawled
into its shell.
In the East, South, and West, this
league is not as highly regarded as it
is supposed here. We think that it
is the best league in the whole coun-
try but at the same time we have
not allowed outsiders to gain the
same impression by athletic relations
between districts to any great ex-
Michigan played one eastern team,
Purdue, Chicago and Iowa each one,
and Ohio State two, this year. But
as a general thing, the Middle West
seldom played the South, the Far
West, and other districts of the
Unless one graduates from a Big
Ten school and studies the football
here, they would tend to be highly
suspicious of our claims.

'Dear Editor: Permit me to make a
few suggestions concerninr
the Michigan hockey team. First
that if prices are to continue at 35
cents Michigan should attempt to
put a hockey team and not a squad
of prize-fighters on the ice. In last
Tuesday's contest with the White
Star group the Wolves sent a 2-man
attack down the ice constantly, lack-
ed much semblance of team play,
and failing to show much offensive
strength, proceeded to rough the De-
troit team in an effort to keep them
from scoring . .
"Now for some individual criti-
cisms. Sherf, who failed to co-operate
with the team in any measure, and
who, failing to be very successful in
solo efforts, turned to dirty hockey,
rather than clean, tricky play.
"Captain Keith Crossman, whose
exhibition of fighting with Wright
of Detroit was disgraceful as Wright's
check of Crossman was legal, show-
ed bad sportsmanship. Crossman's
assault of Wright who only tried to
defend himself and deserved no pen-
alty, was entirely uncalled for.
"Ted Chapman, who still fails to

cover free offensive forwards in front'
of the net, and Captain Emerson Reid
both use unnecessary roughness.
Avon Artz failed to stay on-side.
George David missed three shots at
the open goal...
"In closing, let me remark that the
second Michigan goal was illegal.
Artz was ahead of Crossman when
the latter shot."

ball game for charity.

Illinois Needs
Two More Men
On Cage Squad
Coach Ruby Wants Guard
And Forward To Put
With Trio Of Veterans
URBANA, Ill., Dec. 1.-(Big Ten)
-If Coach Craig Ruby can find a
floor guard and a forward of suffi-
cient ability to team with three reg-
ulars from last year's varsity, it is
probable that the University of Illi-
nois will be represnted with a good
basketball team..
"Red" Owen, guard, Cas Bennett,
forward and Huddie Helllmich, cen-
ter, are the trio of veterans. Owen
a buoyant, aggressive player with a
spirit as flaming as his hair, is a real
leader and is expected to be one of
the best captains in Illini history.
Bennett has played consistently for
two seasons and Hellmich, using his
height of 6 feet 4 inches effectively,
made good as a sophomore last year.
These players, along with Vernon
Moore, a sub center and forward,
remain out of eight who received
varsity letters. Captain Babe Kamp,
forward and Bob Kamp, floor guard,
George Fencl and Bob Bartholomew,
forward, were graduated. Babe Kamp
was unable to play most of the sea-
son, Fencl supplanting him while
Bob Kamp was regular floor guard.
Last year the Illini won seven and j
lost five, finishing fifth and were
the only team to defeat the Purdue
Frank Froschauer, sophomore from
Lincoln, who made good in football
is expected to be a strong contender
for forward.
Eight Lettermen Out For
Hawkeye Basket Squad
IOWA CITY, Dec. 1.-(Big Ten)-
An old spectre, that of paucity of
material, has apparently been beat-
en as Rollie Williams, 36-year-old
Wisconsin alumnus, begins to mold
a cage team for the Hawkeye bid in
the Western conference this winter.
Eight major lettermen, three of
whom were regulars last season, and
five above-average sophomores will
form the basis of the Hawk quintet
this winter. From this group will
come a team that must gace a 17-
game schedule, opening Dec. 3, with
Bradley Tech, and including a dozen
Big Ten games.
Only three regulars on Army's
team will return next year.

Brilliant Sophomores
Crowd Wisconsin Vet
MADISON, Wis., Dec. 1.-(B
Ten)-Although the amount of ye
eran material for the Wisconsin ba
ketball squad is scant, the develop
ment of several promising sopho
mores serves to offset a serious han
dicap and Coach Walter E. Mean
well is firm in his declaration tha
this season's team will rate in fir
division in Big Ten standings.
So brilliant are the newcome
that what few veterans have re
turned are being seriously pressed f
their positions. The only man
clinch his place so far is Ray Ha
mann, giant six feet four Yankto
S. D. sophomore. In addition to 1
height, Hamann weighs 200 pounc
and has plenty of speed.
Two veterans, Carl Vaicek an
Charles Bocek, are leading in tJ
fight for forward posts although GE
ly McDonald and Tommy Smit
two towering sophomores, are not f
behind them.
