Game With 13 Points As
Starting Guards
Michigan State nosed out Michi-
gan's cagers, 20-17, last night in an
overtime game by scoring three fouls
in the extra period.
Captain Eveland pushed a long
side-court shot through the basket'
with only two minutes to play to tie
the score at the end of the game.
Vander Roest converted his foul when
Petrie misplayed and later, Vondette
made two free throws after Plummer
fouled him. These were the only
points scored in the overtime al-
though both teams shot frequently.
State Opene Fast
Michigan State started out fast
with two buckets, by Kircher and
Patchin, and were never headed ex-
cept for one minute in the second
half. Altenhof opened the Michigan
scoring with a two-pointer and Von-
dette sank another to bring the score
to 6-2.
, The game started fast but slowed
down. Garner and Plummer were
yanked in favor of Oliver and Allen
and Michigan set down to better
State got most of their points by
long shots although their pivot and
block type of offense functioned fair-
ly well. After his insertion, Allen
made two shots, the first a follow up
of E'veland's shot and the second
from under the basket by a one-
handed shot from pivot position.
State Leads at Half
State lead at half-time, 9-8 but
Allen got a foul as the second half
started to tie the score. Kircher got
a one-handed shot and Plummer a
long tom to tie up again.
Then State forged into the lead with
McCaslin's and Patchin's converted
fouls. Allen sank another one-hand-
ed pivot shot and Captain Eveland
put Michigan in the lead with an-
other two-pointer after taking a free
ball from a group of State players.
Eveland Ties Game
Kicher came back and out-ran
Eveland for a basket as the Maize
and Blue captain fouled him. The
fast State guard made one of his
two tries and gave his team a 15-17
lead. Then Eveland got his long side-
court shot to tie the game again,
for the third time of the game, when
the final gun sounded.
Michigan missed all but one foul
shot out of 5 and made ten personals.
This lost the game as the Spartans
made eight fouls and only committed

three-day time-trial meet yesterday
at Yost Field House. The entire
freshman squad engaged in compe-

performances were turned in.

were Paul Gorman, who ran the
half-mile in 2:05.5, and Dick Ellerby,
who won the quarter mile in a time
of 54.5. Ellerby is the brother of Har-
old Ellerby, Varsity quarter miler. In
the Field events- Art Anderson in the

Hoyt Gives Men
First Workouts
Against Watch
Runners Turn In Fair
Times; Charley DeBaker
To Lead Fine Squad
Running on a reduced work sched-!
ule, the Varsity track squad began4
'the year in earnest yesterday after-
noon when Coach Charley Hoyt
called for the first time trials. Al-
though the sprinters and middle dis-
tance men worked the full distance,
they ran under wraps as the medi-
ocre times would indicate.
When Ned Turner, the Michigan
half - mile representative on the
Olympic team, turns in something in
the neighborhood of 2:03, it appears
that the throttle was partially closed.
Lemen, a conference point winner,
was close up and in a tie with the
former Illinois half-miler, Harvey
Smith, for second place in the half.
The sprinters, of which much is
hoped for in the coming campaign,
put their best foot forward in the
personages of Lamb and Kempt.
Lamb won one heat and Kempt the
other in the time of 5.7 in the fifty.
If these two men can dodge the in-
jury jinx which Michigan sprinters
have been troubled with for the past
few years this apparent gap in the
squad may be filled with capable per-
Aliens Show Form
Two years of ineligibility hasn't,
so far as early performances would
indicate, hurt the speed and drive
which Allen exhibited as a yearling.
In fact a 440 in 51.2 this early in
the year would sound like the answer
to a track coach's prayer. One of
the most consistent of last year's
great quarter-mile squad, Tom Eller-
by was up to the tape in almost the
same time as Allen with still another
Allen taking the third place.
When Captain DeBaker returns
after recuperating from the football
season let-down, it will look as
though Michigan were due for an-
other championship quarter - mile
Distance men both in and out of
the conference will do well to keep
an eye on Ex-Captain Howell of the
Cross-Country team. Running a
steady race that carried both power
and speed the whole route, Howell
finished well out in front in Big
League time.

Wisconsin believes he has un-
covered another "Stretch" Murphy in
Roy Humbrecht, a 6 ft., 8 1-2 inch
center. Humbrecht, a sophomore, is
not expected to see much service

He held the ball for the kickoff and
then immediately left the game.
*A *A *
Amateur tournament held here
last week, revealed some rather star-
tling things to us concerning the
matter of coaching and conditioning.
It was evident that the best boxers,
by boxers we mean skilled ringmen
with good form and accurate lefts
and rights and a good defense, came
from the schools having entries. Only
two title winners were not represent-
ing any school, while all the others
were from either the University, Ypsi
Normal or Western State Teachers'
Earl McCleery, of Ann Arbor, is a
good exampld of what we mean. He
is a powerful hitter and a courageous
fighter, as he demonstrated in all of
his fights, but he lacks the ability
to cover up when his opponent is
attacking, and the ability to plan his
fight, that training which a good
coach would give him.
Andre Gunn, who clearly was not
in condition, won from McCleery in
the middleweight finals on his su-
perior skill in the fundamentals of
boxing. He was catching all of Mc-
Cleery's roundhouses on his arms or
gloves then stepping in for a few
hard, fast jabs of his own.
To Vernon Larsen, no mean boxer
himself, goes much of the credit for
the successful staging of the bouts.
as well as the success of Michigan
boxers whom he coached.
One of the title winners, who has
trained under both Larsen and Let
Philbin, boxing coach, said after the
fights last night that in a few years
Larsen will be as good a coach as is
Philbin at present, and that's saying
a good deal for Philbin is credited
with some of the campus' finest box-
ers. Including Jack Starwas who
demonstrated his skill by putting
away Ferris Newman in the last
round of the fight Friday night.
We're giving Newman a big hand for
sticking in there as long as he did.

3 Wrestlers To
Defend Titles
In All-Campus
Tourney Opens Tuesday
At Intramural Building
With Ninety Entries
Only three champions will be pres-
ent to defend their titles in the All-
Campus wrestling meet, opening
Tuesday afternoon in the Intramural
The annual mat event, open to
anyone but a letterman of the var-
sity team. will last three days, the
preliminary rounds coming on Tues-
day and Wednesday, Dec. 13 and 14.
The finals are slated for Thursday,
Dec. 15 and will be held in the eve-
ning in the main gymnasium.
Hilton Ponto, one of the three
title-defenders, will wrestle in the
165-lb. class, while John Spoden
will also attempt to retain his title
in the heavyweight division. His
chief opponent here is Bill Hilde-
brand, winner of the 175-lb. cham-
pionship last year, a class that Hilde-
brand has grown out of.
Ninety to Compete
Approximately 90 men will com-
pete, practically all of the varsity
and freshman team members being
entered. The contestants may weigh
in at the Intramural Building or
W a te r m a n Gymnasium Monday
afternoon, with the drawings being
made in the evening.
Several former title-holders will
probably appear at the meet as ref-
erees. Joe Oakley, Art Mosier, and
Bob Helliwell, champions in the 1931
meet, having since won letters on the
varsity squad. Ed Landwehr, winner
in the 145-lb. event a year ago, will
be out of the meet with an injured
The freshman squad, which ac-
cording to Coach Cliff Keen, is the
best in recent seasons in both ability
and numbers, should bid for many of
the places in the finals.
Starwas surely packs dynamite in his
right when he has it timed right.
What we thought was the only ex-
ample of poor sportsmanship shown
by the crowd was their booing when
Obe Williams, black dynamite from
Ypsilanti was awarded the decision
over Dave Gallup, University, in the
bantam division.

All-Campus Cag e
Tournies Planned
ByI-M Department
Wifh the opening of the basketball
season, the Intramural department
is laying its plans for the all cam-
pus competition. The number of ap-
plications that have come in so far
are an indication of the popularity
of the enterprise and over 200 teams
are expected to enter.
The entries last year numbered
200 teams the majority of which were
fraternity teams, but the independ-
ents, the R.O.T.C., the Union, the
faculty, and the church league were
all represented by entries in the com-
petition. The only change in the
rules is the elimination of the "C"
class teams from the competition.
A few of the rules now in effect
are given below. Every player, in or-
der to participate, must have a health
card. Any members of the Varsity,
"B" team, or freshman squads are
ineligible for competition. The teams
are classed into two divisions, "A"
and "B" classes, which are considered
as the first and second teams of the
entering group. Any member of the
"B" class may change from that class
to the "A" team but after playing
with the "A" team may not change
back to the "B" class.
Entries must be in by Tuesday as
the schedules are to be made up the
following day. The games will begin
immediately following the Christmas.

Coaehes Meet
For New Rules
The Michigan High School Ath-
letic Association met yesterday at
the Intramural Building and Hill
Auditorium for the first of its 1932
basketball rules interpretation meet-
The longest discussion was about
the new "ten second rule." The rule
was accepted by a 60 vote margin,
but when the modifications were
proposed, there was very much dis-
sention. One amendment was pro-
posedstating that an offensive area
be established, this area being forty
feet from the end of the defending
team's territory, and that the ball
was to pass a marked boundary
within 10 seconds of play. This
amendment was to be applied to bas-
ketball courts between 84 and 60 feet
long. For courts over 84 feet long,
the boundary was to be the center of
the court. For those less than 60
feet long, there was not to be an
offensive area.
Although there was much argu-
ment over the interpretation of
clocking, there was not any radical
change in the wording of the rule.
After the meeting, those attending,
namely coaches, school superinten-
dents, and players, were given free
tickets to the basketball game be-
cween Michigan and Michigan State
neld last night.
