(Sports Editor)
IT IS WITH due consideration an
supplication to the deities popu
larly supposed to look after childrer
sports writers and others not in ful
possession of adult mentalhcapabil
ities, that I seat myself at the creak,
old editorial typewriter as the prou
papa of an All-Conference eleven.
Well do I realize that two out o
the grand; total of three ,people wh
read thiscolyum will not like my se
lection at all, and that one of thos
two will notlike it to the extent tha
he will hurl countless impassioned
imprecations upon my defenseles
head and cast slurs and such object
upon the fraternity of sportin
scribes ii; general.
Thus, upon reading this selectio,
do not think that I am unaware o
one fundamental truth: Every mai
in the world has a fixed idea that hi
is a sports expert
I myself have ha
the illusion, al
though understan
}f ' that this is strictl
confidential. I re
alize that the onl
way in whichI
could please every-
body would be t
print a blank lis
of positions, le
each man make hi
own selections an
devil take the hindmost.
Nevertheless, I have spent man
sleepless nights up here in the Daily
office with a crew of engineers whic
I discovered on an archeological ex-
pedition into the Engine school. They
were locked in an old forgotten la
and had been there without slide-
rules for ten years. Naturally, withou
slide-ru s nne of them gould thin I
of opening a window and slipping oul
that way. So I liberated them and
equipped them with slide-rules. Ther
I let them in on my mathematica)
system for picking All-Conference
teams, gave them my data and let
them start.
In rating the men, I used a point
system: It is founded on the old say-
ing about one for the money, two for
the show, three to make ready and
four to go.
Ends: Petoskey (Michigan) because
this year he sacrificed spectacular
play to the filling 4
of his position and,
thereby aiding,
Michigan's defense
and probably ruin-
ing his chances for
nearly every other '~i MM
All-Conference se-
Larson (Minne-
sota) because he
was just as good
an end as Petoskey eJs7egJrr
in the Minnesota game, breaking
through frequently to do considerably
more than annoy the Wolverines - -
another end who plays his position,
rather than, like Manske of North-
western, roaming all over the field
and looking like a swell player.
Tackles: Wistert (Michigan). Can
you name me a game in which he was
outplayed? I thought not. He ab-
sorbed more punishment than any
other man on the squad and met the
best in the Big Ten throughout the
season. They couldn't lay him out
for more than a half.
Schammel (Iowa). The hardest
rock in a splendid line. Besides that,
I had to put at least one Iowa man
into the line be-
cause I may be do-
ing quite an injus-
tice by leaving the
ti ?' Hawkeyes out of
the backfield. Fo'-
give me.
Guards: Kawal
because he is re-

puted to be the
"fighting" inspira-
6?E~eVR~eD tion of the Wildcat
forward wall,
which is no mean one. Because he is
from Cicero, Illinois.
Joe Gailus (Ohio State) because I
would be severely criticized if I didn't
include a member of the great O.S.UJ.
line in this selection although (so
help me) he was outplayed on the
the twenty-first of October this year
of grace.

Codeball Comes To
Fore As Favorite
'Mural Innovation
(Assistant Director of I-M Sports)
A new game has rapidly come to
the fore at the Intramural Sports
Building and each week finds new
devotees to the Fascinating game
of Codeball, an adaptation of hand-
ball. Two features of the game seem
to account for its popularity -nov-
elty and economy.
Played in a handball court, it is
similar to handball except that the
ball is put and kept in play by kick-
ing or "footing" it, all use of the
hands and arms being forbidden ex-
cept to prepare the ball for serving.
Ball Is Described
The ball itself is an inflated rub-
ber ball, spherical in shape, six inches
in diameter, and weighs ten ounces.
It is served from a position within
five feet back of a service line. The
server drops the ball to the floor and
kicks it, on either the first or second
bounce, to the front wall. A drop
kick or fly serve is not allowed. If
the server misses.the ball on the
serve he is "out." He has three
chances at bouncing the ball before
If the served ball travels back and
crosses the service line before hitting
the floor, the service is complete and
its return by the opponent is obliga-
tory. Should the served ball strike
the back wall before hitting the floor
it is in play and must be returned.
Fifteen points constitute a game.
After watching the playing of this
game, one is impressed with the pos-
sibilities of developing the footwork
which is so essential in the playing of
other games. Likewise it seems to
be quite a game for teaching a cer-
tain amount of grace, as well as af-
fording excellent eye-training, devel-
oping endurance and offering fine
muscular development for the stom-
ach and legs. It can be played at
top speed or in a leisurely fashion,
and can be a hard, closely contested
affair or a good-natured game with
plenty of comical moments for the
players and spectators.
Players Enthusiastic
Everyone who has tried the game
is enthusiastic about it. Intramural
officials feel that 'it fills a certain
need not supplied by other enclosed
court games. It is to be preferred by
some over handball because an in-
dividual playing that game irregular-
ly finds, tiat the hands become
bruised and sore. Play with the- feet
is easier than with the hands and
appeals more to the novice and un-
trained, for everyone can kick more
or less lustily. Squash racquets on
the other hand necessitate some skill
in order to play a fair game and
there is the item of outlay for equip-
ment. All in all the department con-
siders Codeball to be a very fine ad-
dition to its list of sports activities'
and stands ready to give information
and instruction to those desiring it.
Dr. Wm. E. Code of Chicago origi-
nated the game which was sanctioned
and adopted by the Amateur Ath-
letic Union four years ago.
Last year marked the beginning of3
national tournament play w i t h

Cage Squad Is
Preparing For
W.S.TC. Game
Coach Cappon Pessimistic
Over Prospects Of Tean
For This Season
King football has had his day, and
now, as the moleskins are put into
storage for another year, Coach Cap-1
py Cappon is hastily putting his bas-
ketball squad in order to take its
place. The temporary court has been
erected in Yost Field House, and the
hopeful cagers are feverishly work-
ing out every day in preparation for
the opener with Western State
Teachers on Dec. 4.
Coach Cappon is anything but op-
timistic right now over the team's
prospects for the season. In spite
of the fact that his squad has been
reinforced by 11 men from the foot-
ball squad, he still feels that he has
no effective working combination in
the whole lot.
The muddled situation of earlier in
the year has,uhowever, been materi-
ally cleared up by the addition of
five good guards from the grid out-
fit. Capt. Petoskey heads the list,
with "Zit" Tessmer, Chelso Tomagno,
George Rudness, and Russ Oliver
completing the -list. Cappy can now
concentrate on offensive plays which
a lack of guards has hindered so
Coach Cappon intimated yesterday
that he will not use the regular foot-
ball men for one or two games in
order that they may have the proper
rest and opportunity to adjust their
studies. Such regulars include Capt.
Petoskey, Whitey Wistert, Johnny
Regeczi, and perhaps Bill Borgmann.
The starting lineup for the first
game is at present merely conjectur-
al, but the center post, at least, is
quite well determined. Fred Allen,
veteran of last year, has the pivot
job well in hand and Cappy is ,de-
pending on him for points this year.
Of the forwards Al Plummer and
George Ford seem to have the edge,
closely followed by Don Black and
Mike Malashevich.
At guards Cappy will probably
start Tessmer and Oliver, with To-
magno, Rudness, and later Petoskey
and Wistert alternating.

Hoyt Has Good
Track Material
in Sophomores
40 Candidates For Track
Have Reported To Coach
With More Expected
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of
a series of two articles on Michigan's
1934 track prospects. It concerns itself
with newcomers to the squad. Tomnor-
row's article will deal with the return-
ing letter-men.
Indoor track activities are getting
under full swing this week with the
issuing by Varsity Coach Charlie
Hoyt of the first call for the 1933-34
winter season. Some 40 candidates
have already reported for practice
and the full quota of close to 100
men is expected to show up in the
near future.
Practice sessions are to be con-]
ducted every afternoon on the Yost
Field House track. Until after the
Christmas holidays they will be con-
fined merely to warm-up drills as the
thinclads get the crinks out of their
muscles in preparation for a stiff in-
door and outdoor campaign..
Michigan, winner of the Big Ten'
outdoor track title three times in the
last four years and six times during
the last decade, definitely will have
another good track team in 1934. This
year's outfit will boast quite a number
of men who- will- be able" to take
points - not necessarily to finish
first in many events- but to get sec-
onds, thirds and fourths as did last
year's team in piling up the startling
total of 60 1-2 points in winning the
Conference outdoor title.
Coach Hoyt will miss half a dozen
boys who were graduated last year,
but he will have strength left and will
have a few good and quite a few fair

All-Coast Team
Is Selected By

SAN FRANCISCO Nov 28. - (/P)
- Three Pacific Coast conference
football squads - Southern Califor-
nia, Stanford and Oregon State-
are represented by two players each
on The Associated Press' ninth an-
nual all-Pacific coast football team,
presented today as the consensus of
leading officials, coaches and sports
Oregon, which tied Stanford for
the conference title; California Uni-
versity of San Francisco, St. Mary's
College and Washington each placed
one player on the first eleven.
The collective opinion represented
the heaviest and most representative
balloting in nine years with more
than 50 observers in all sections of
the west voting.
The 1933 selection presents the
lightest and fastest backfield chosen
in nine.years with an average weight
of 173 pounds. The line averages
200 pounds and includes three ac-
curate field goal kickers in Adolphe
Schwammel, Oregon State tackle;
Bill Corbus, Stanford guard; and Bill
Smith, Washington end.
The-first team:
End: Bill Smith, Washington; Jim
Moscrip, Stanford.
Guards: Bill Corous, Stanford; Aa-
ron Rosenberg, Southern California.
Center: Larry Siemering, Univer-
sity of San Francisco.
Tackle: Adolphe Schwammel, Ore-

gon State; Lawrence Lutz. Calif or-
Quarterback: Irvine Warburton,
Southern California.
Halfbacks: Norman Franklin, Ore-
gon State; George Wilson, St. Mary's.

of his passes which Schustek could
have caught in his hip-pocket should

really know how good he is, and the
same Chicago sports writers who
picked Purdue to win the title hands
down seem to think he is a great
player but I want everybody to
understand that I don't set any store
by those guys anyway.
Fullback: Lund (Minnesota). Say,
did you see the Minnesota game?
Of course, if you got these fellows
together, they would probably do
nothing in the way of football be-
cause they would most likely argue
about the season in the middle of
the huddle and there are probably no
blockers whatever in the backfield.

wrong somewhere, so don't ask me
why I didn't put Whosis of Whatsis

my opinions. I won't, I won't!

CLEVELAND, Nov. 28.--(VP) -With
Sam Willaman, football coach at
Ohio State University, "the boys come
first, the school second, and the pub-

his five-year record.
"At Ohio State," he told Cleveland)
alumni after a banquet in his honor,

Under fire from certain .quarters
this year following his team's defeat
by Michigan - the only 1933 game
Ohio State lost -Willaman had re-
frained from answering his critics
until after the closing game with Illi-
nois last Saturday.
"We've been trying to coach the
boys to play a good aggressive game.
We don't drive them, but we try to
encourage them. I don't claim
coaches make character, but I do say
they shouldn't break it," Willaman
Michigan, the coach said, "was an
extremely great team the day we
played them," but he added that "if.
Oliphant hadn't slipped when he was
in the clear after catching a pass in
the fourth quarter, the score might
have been 7 to 6 and we'd have won
a game we didn't deserve to win."

prospects from last year's freshman
The men coming up who seem to be
the best prospects are Harvey Smith,
Lakewood, Ohio, who transferred
from Illinois where he placed fourth
in the Conference half-mile one year.
He was outstanding in cross-country
and runs the 880 in close to 1:56;
Paul Gorman, Buffalo, a 4:30 miler
and 2:01 half miler; Dave Hunn, Elk-
hart, Ind., a 13 foot vaulter; Harvey
Patton, 51 second quarter miler; Wid-
mer Etchelles, Trenton, N. J., 135 foot
discus thrower; Floyd Adams, Lake-
