ICHIGAN'S athletic head, Ralph.
Aigler, chairman of the Board of
thletics, is also Chairmahi of the
aculty committee of the Big Ten,
cceeding T. H.French of Ohio
tate in the position.
We wonder just what this means
regard to changing the Confer-
ice rule on post-season football
Imes. At the last meeting of the
aculty committee, the most im-
rtant question was whether the
le would be changed. It was post-
ned until the regular Spring meet-
Professor Aigler was elected to this
st Dec. 3 yet no correspondent
Ann Arbor knew it until last
ght. The way it was found out was
at a story came through from Iowa
ty regarding the eligibility of Break
d Blackmere, the two Hawkeye
.sketball stars. In the story was a
ention of the fact that word had
en received from Chairman Aigler,
io took a mail vote upon the ques-
in. We called him up and he could
t deny it.

wall for us. Maybe ineligibility
may strike others also. They say that
the handwriting is on thewall for
two members of the hockey team.
Coach Mann may draw a few shocks
out of the bag of final grades also.
Cappon is worrying about several of
his cagers. And so it goes all down
the list of athletes this -year.
And we wondered why it was that
year after year, it is the athletes who
are worrying about marks at the end
of each semester. The blow may
strike where the least expected, as

When Coach Eddie Lowrey, pop-
ular hockey mentor, issued his first
call for freshman puck material he
was met with a horde of some 50
aspiring skaters. Anyone of less ex-
perience might have thought the an-
swer to a coach's dream, but Low-
rey, having tutored yearling teams
for some time, knew that the ma-
jority of material would prove
worthless. Some were out for the fun
of it, others in order to get excused
from Phys. Ed. classes and still
others -- the minority - to play
After two or three boistrous prac-
tices the chaff had been eliminated.
Then Lowrey settled down to the
serious business of moulding future
The squad now numbers 14, and
out of this group a few have shown
possibilities. Charles Hoyt, Finlay
McQueen, Bill Onderdonk, Lawrence
David, Bob King, and Parker Stet-
son have been performing well at
forward positions, while Gordon
Schroeder appears to hold the edge
on the goalies.
Squad Will Practice Varsity
The squad is completed with Mul-
ligan, Etchelles, and Reading, de-
fense, Klene, a forward, and
Schauer a ' d Tarbox, goalies. These
will be retpined for the remainder
of the season, at the close of which
the outsta :ding men will be chosen
to drill with the Varsity in post-sea-
Up to the present time players who
have made the squad have been
picked for their ability to skate and
hold their sticks. Quoting Lowrey,
"When a man goes out for hockey
and starts skating around with the
stick under his arm, or holding it in
one hand vhen he starts to carry the
puck he wen't ido. The first thing he
must learn to do is to acquire bal-
ance. We do not have time to teach a
man to ski: e as well as play hockey."
Mu: Replace Veterans
A serious responsibility rests on
the shoulders of this year's freshman
squad. They must produce someone
to take the places vacated by Co-
Captains Beid and Crossman who
graduate in June.
Lowrey's pessimistic prediction is
that "Michigan will be a long time
getting mcn to replace Reid and
Crossman. There are none on the
present freshman squad." But inas-
much as he aired the same views last
year, and then came through with
Johnny's Jewell and Sherf, hockey
enthusiasts may maintain hope.

Michigan's Varsity hockey team

The Techmen have shown plenty
of power this year, winning a brace
of games from the University of Wis-
consin at 4 to 0 and 5 to 0 on the
thirteenth and fourteenth of this
month. Their defeats of the Badgers,
who will be here on Friday and Sat-
urday night of the same week, stamp
them as worthy foemen for the
Team Will Practice
Meanwhile, the Wolves will prac-
tice three nights a week to prepare
for the onslaught of the Miners, the
Badgers and the Gophers who come
in rapid succession. Coach Ed Low-
rey of the Michigan team contem-
plates a shift in lineup to strengthen
the Maize and Blue defense.
John Sherf will be placed at right
defense, with Chapman moving over
to his usual left defense position.
Thus David, whose defe:2se has been
outstanding all season, will be able
to fall back from the right wing posi-
tion to aid Sherf, who is inexperi-
enced as a defenseman.
Reid's fractured hand has already
healed to the point where he can
take shots at the net, while Cross-
man is recovering speed and form
lost in an illness just after the holi-
Tech Has Stars
Speed, stamina, and aggressiveness
characterize the play ofthe Tech
outfit, according to reports received
yesterday. Croze, at left wing, is one
of their outstanding men, and Cap-
tain Jacobson, right defense is rep-
uted to be an accurate shot. Ferries
at right wing has received much fa-
vorable comment in the press, and
Maki, the goal tender, stars consist-
Tech also boasts a "Pony Express"
trio of forwards comprised of Weal-
ton, Latimer, and La Mothe. This
group alternates with the regular
front line as a speed feature. The
contest marks the first game in years
between Michigan and Michigan
Tech. Athletic relations were sus-
pended due to an attack on the ref-
eree by a member of the Tech team
which ended in a free-for-all.

Ruth, Gehrg Are
NEW YORK, Jan. 28.--'P)-Ben
Chapman, the Alabama flier, has re-
turned his contract to the New York
Yankees, unsigned, thereby joining
Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig as hold-
outs, but Secretary Ed Barrow today
declined to comment on the fleet
outfielder's differences with the club.
Chapman was reported to have been
asked to take a $2,000 "cut," but
Barrow would not conform this.
So far as is officially known, how-
ever, all members of the world cham-
pions except Manager Joe McCarthy,
John Allen and Vernon Gomez were
asked to take "cuts" ranging from
$500 to the Babe's $25,000.
Chapman retained his title as the
American League's leading base run-
ner in 1932, but his performances in
this specialty as well as in batting
fell off. He stole 28 bases as com-
pared with 61 the year before and
batted .299 as compared with .315

Pennsylvania; Glenn Cunningham,
of Kansas University, and Eric Ny,
of Sweden, match strides in the
Wanamaker m.le, feature event of
the Millrose games at Madison
Square Garden. New York.
Venzke, the Pennsylvania antelope,
holds the indoor mile record of 4:10;
Cunningham is the N. C. A. A. mile
-hampion with 4:11.1 to his credit,
ad NY is Sweden's outstanding1,-
The flying Swede with the short
name ran at the Olympic Games in
Los Angeles and placed fifth in the
1,500 meters, between Cunningham,
fourth, and Pen Hallowell. He won
the Swedish 1,500-meter champion-
ship in 1931 in 3:58.8 and last year
turned in 3:55.5. He is believed good
for 4:12, or therabouts, in the mile.
If the long, lean Venzke has re-
turned to the indoor form he flashed
last year, as a 21-year high school
boy, the experts elieve he will bet-
ter his 4:10 record when paced by
such formidable opponents as Ny
There's one school of track follow-
ers who would not be surprised to
see both Venzke and Ny take the
dust of Cunningham's heels as they
swing around the oval.
