Coach Hanley already knows just
lat Newman can do because of the

Grantland Rice writes in the cur-
nt Collier's, "He (Newman) was di-
ctly responsible for five of Mich-

A FULL-SIZED clock with stop-
watch attachment is being used
to time the hockey games. This gives
interested spectators a chance to
keep as accurate time as the official
In Wednesday's match with West-
ern Ontario, many co-eds watched
the clock for the time. It runs, how-
ever, only while official play is on.
Time out, rests, and time between
periods are not registered.
As the team went into the over-
time the clock said 9 p. m. and after
they had finished it was 9:20. How-
ever, the real time was 10:45, which,
when found out annoyed the co-eds

Michigan's Leader Makes
15 Points In Scoring
Spree, Plummer 9
Captain DeForest Eveland led his
basketball team to their initial vic-
tory of. the season over Mr. Union of
Alliance Ohio by scoring 15 points in
the 36 to 27 win.
The slender Wolverine forward was
hot. His shots from outside the foul-
circle swished through the net and
his fast dribbling that ripped the
Union defense to shreds, gave him
several opportunities for his favorite
shot, a high running jump in front
of the basket.
Altenhof, Petrie Help
As Eveland speeded up his play to
lead the team to victory, Ray Alten-
hof and Bob Petrie, Maize and Blue
guards, took heart and also produced
good games. It was the fast Petrie
that outran the Union players, steal-
ing the ball away from them as they
rushed their dribbles to the Michigan
basket. Altenhof responded to the
challenge of Eveland and Petrie with
superior play in every department.
Michigan led at halftime, 14-11,
after playing slow, uninteresting bas-
ketball. They took the ball down to
the Union defense but could not pen-
etrate it for many accurate shots. Mt.
Union had the ball most of the first
half but they too, could not slice the
defense for many points.
Michigan Increases Lead
Michigan worked to a 22-13 lead
soon after the second half started.
On one of the prettiest plays of the
game, Altenhof brought the ball
down the floor, hooked it to Petrie
who dribbled away from the basket,
passed to Michigan's captain who
sank the dog shot under the basket.
Michigan continued its scoring
spree, bringing it to 36-20 when the
reserves replaced the starters and Mt.
Union made seven more points be-
fore the final whistle.
Michigan Gagers will travel to
Kalamazoo this week-end for a game
with Western State Teachers Coile-e,.

and-home series. Coach Cappan's
team will be out to avenge an earlier
Following the Saturday game, the
squad will enjoy a week's vacation
and Dec. 27 will report back for the
start of work for the Syracuse con-
test Jan. 2.
Twelve men are slated to return for
the holiday practice, Coach Cappon
announced. They are Capt. Eveland,
Altenhof, Williamson, Petrie, Plum-

Morning and afternoon sessions will

The team will be improved mate-
rially after the holidays when Ivan

Tip-Off Is Unimportant,
According To Research1
CHICAGO, Dec. 15.--(A)---Although
there are certain advantages to the
team which controls the tip, its elim-

influence in the final outcome of the

Seven new champions were crown-
ed in the All-Campus wrestling tour-
nament, held at the Intramural
Building last night before a crowd
of 700 people.
Only John Spoden, in the heavy-
weight division, retained his crown.
Spoden outclassed Tom O'Bryon,
gaining an advantage at the outset
of the fight and throwing O'Bryon in
5:20, to win the match.
Two Decision Matches
All but two of the matches ended
in falls. In the 118 pound battle Don
Fiero of the varsity gained a 1:15
time advantage to defeat Palmer of
the freshman team in a slow match.
In the other non-fall match Sey-
mour Rubin, state A.A.U. titleholder
at 126 pounds, defeated Dick Martin.
Rubin gained a 6:20 time advantage
and was able to offset a closing rally

tion extended by the National

Austin Fiero Wins
Another A.A.U. champion, Austin
Fiero, won the 135 pound go, by vir-
tue of a fall over Carroll Sweet in
6:52. Sweet put up a good fight but
tired rapidly as the bout progressed.
Louis Parker, of the varsity, an-
nexed the 165 pound; crown. He
threw Olmstead, a yearling in 5 min-
utes. The bout was stopped after
1 minute of fighting when Parker

shoulder was bruised he continued
to fight but had little chance against
