Hockey Sextet

To Meet Ahertburg Tonight At Coliseum


Favoring The
Spartans. . .".
., t'e, Associated Press have
a' d ,out a. story, on who is going
o tfilThe ┬░plae of Chicago in the
k Big Ten if the Midway institution
merges with Northwestern and goes
strictly graduate on us, I, like every
columnist within shouting range, am
going to comment upon it.
From the scholastic point of view
I think the idea an excellent one.
The University of Chicago has long
been noted for its high standards
along this line and it has a very fine
graduate school, with excellent op-
portunities for research. If the at-
tendant difficulties can be adjusted,
I do not doubt that the interests ef
both institutions would be served.
Interviewing undergraduate mem-
bers of the institutions on the recent
trek to Evanston, I found them all
practically in tears and deploring the
whole thing, which is quite natural.
It's an amazing characteristic of hu-
man nature that we seldom love our
next-door neighbors.
It is in direct controversion to this
principle that I am going to favor
the addition of Michigan State to the
conference, and I can just hear my
readers screaming loudly right now,
because of this stated eccentricity.
Mentioned also are Notre Dame, Mar-
quette, and Nebraska.
NOW WHILE many people around
here make derogatory remarks
about Michigan State prior to thel
football game, and vice-versa, deep
down in our hearts I think we all re-
gard Michigan State as a very dear
enemy, because they have quite a
habit of turning out pretty fine foot-
ball teams up there and holding
Michigan to scoreless ties upon some
The addition of Notre Dame would-
mean that three institutions of the
Big Ten would be located in Indiana,
and you might just as well break
down and call it the "Hoosier Loop,"
or disqualify all the otheri Universities
because they are not located in that
Nebraska's addition would extend
the territory of the Big Ten to too
large an extent; Ohio State teams
;4*in oplht Nebraska would prob-
abl~ haetooharter a fleet of air-
planes to get there and back in any-
thing far short of a week.
I question whether the numerous
requirements and restrictions of the
Big Ten would attract Notre Dame
particularly; I think the South Bend
boys would rather go their over-em-
phasized way in peace.
Marquette is rather small and weak
in a football way to merit a great
deal of attention. Of course, there is
no denying that they had a suicide
schedule this year with so many long
trips that the boys must still be car-
sick, but still I don't think that Mar-
quette is as yet in the Big Ten class.
Knowing nothing whasoever about
local ground rules in the various in-
stitutions in regard to the getting and
keeping of athletics, I advance the
theory that the present restrictions
at Michigan State would need less
face-lifting than those of the other
learning-foundries. So maybe some
day we may welcome the Spartans
into the Western Conference fold.
Blue Raiders Will

At 4:15 this afternoon, the Blue
Raiders will meet the D.D.'s at Ferry
Field in the final match of the inde-

runner with both hands instead of
tackling, and the standing block in-
stead of the rolling block will be the
only deviations from the regular
The D.D.'s are winners of the
League II eliminations, having de-
feated the Humpty Dumpties 6 to 0

At 4:30, the faculty volleyball team
representing the engineering school
will meet the Chinese students' team

Second Victory
Over M-O Team

Lowrey Expects To Start!
Same Six That Defeated
Dearborn In Opener
With one close victory under its
belt, Michigan's Varsity hockey team:
races .Amherstburg, (Ont.), of the
IM-O league, on the Varsity Arena
at 8 p. m. today. Tuesday the Wol-
verines staged a hard battle for a 4
to 3 win over Dearborn A.C. Amherst-
burg is rated about equal to Dearborn
this year and another close contest
is anticipated by Coach Eddie Lowrey
In the opening game Tuesday night
Michigan played a very fast brand of
hockey, but lacked smoothness. Since
then the team has held only one prac-
tice, the session last night. Ted Chap-
man and Johnny Sherf were not out
for the drill. Capt. George David and
Avon Artz displayed an effective
passing combination last night and
if this pair can connect in future
games, the Reid-Crossman combine
will not be so conspicuously absent.
. Michigan Good on. Defense
This year's lone game showed that
the pucksters have an exceptionally
good defensive line in Ted Chapman
and Larry David. On offense Sherf
is practically a one-man team, dis-
playing plenty of speed and an art
at handling the puck. His solo dashes
promise to be whatever scoring punch
the Wolverines may have this sea-
Although Amherstburg was beaten
by Dearborn earlier in the season,
Coach Lowrey believes they will be
tougher than the A.C.'s by the fact
that they have had more experience
playing together. Lowrey has seen
these men play and says they have
a very fast and aggressive style of
Starting Team Picked
The line-up for the Amherstburg
outfit is not definitely settled yet,
but Lowrey plans on putting the same
team on the ice that defeated Dear-
born. In the forward wall will be
Capt. David and John Sherf; at cen-
ter, Avon Artz, and the defensive.
wings will be Larry David andTed
Chapman. Jewell will again be in
the net. Spares are Onderdonk, cen-
ter; McEachern, forward; and Stew-
art, defense.
Game time is set at 8 p. in., with
the Coliseum opening at 7:30. Stu-'
dents and faculty must present ath-
letic books to obtain the 35-cent rate.
General admission will be the usual
75 cents.

Yost Thinks Ramblers
Best For Conference
Fielding H. Yost, Director of Ath-
letics, when questioned last night
regarding his stand on the pro-
posal that another school be ad-
mitted to the Big Ten in the event
that Northwestern and Chicago
should merge, stated that if the
faculty board of the Conference
should decide to admit another
school that, in his opinion, Notre
Dame would be the logical choice
to replace Chicago. Because of
their fine record in football during
the past years, Coach Yost said,
Notre Dame compares favorably in
ability with the other Big Ten
teams and would be the best choice
to fill the vacancy.
Prof. Ralph Aigler, Michigan
representative and chairman of
the Big Ten faculty board, said
last night that he had received no
official confirmation of the report
proposing consolidation of Chicago
and Northwestern Universities,
and the subsequent suggestion of
several Mid-West schools as pos-
sible choices for the vacated place.
He added that he personally could
see "no reason why the Conference
should not revert to but nine mem-
The semi-annual meeting of the
Conference faculty board is to be
held this week-end in Chicago and
Prof. Aigler stated that he had re-
ceived no intimation that other
than routine business would be
transacted. The final decision as to
whether the Western Conference
should revert to a "Big Nine" rests
with the faculty board.
Tau Delta Phi
Gets Fraternity
Wrestling Title
For the second consecutive year,
Tau Delta Phi established its supre-
macy in fraternity wrestling by
emerging from the finals of the fra-
ternity wrestling tournament,. held
in the wrestling room of the Intra-
mural building last night, with the
most points.
Abe Levine and Art Singer, the
two finalists upon whom Tau Delta
Phi based its hopes, came through
to win their matches in great style.
Levine defeated Cash of Tau Kappa
Epsilon, garnering five points by his
victory; and giving his fraterity a
three-point lead over the T.K.E.
house. Going into the 175-pound
struggle in which the combatants
were Singer of Tau Delta Phi, and
Irwin. of Tau Kappa Epsilon, Tau
Delta Phi needed a win to clinch the
championship. A defeat in this match
would plunge them into a tie with
Tau Kappa Epsilon. Singer responded
to the exhortations of his supporters
and won the match.
The Stow-Koorhan was the most
thrilling match on the evening's card.
After tangling for two minutes with
neither man receiving an advantage,
Stow lost the referee's coin-toss and
Koorhan gained the top position over
him. From this advantageous posi-
tion, he pinned Stow in one minute.
Stow was then allowed the same posi-
tion and one minute in which to pin
his opponent. He almost succeeded,
but time robbed him of his fall.
The following is a summary of the
titular matches: 118 pounds, Wein-
stein, K. N., decision over Lowell,
T.K.E.; 125 pounds, Rubin, P.B.D.,.
on forfeit from Leonard, S.C.; 135

Big Ten Berth
May Be Open
To Newcomer
Ma r o o n s, Northwestern
May Merge; Mid-West
Teams Are Considered
CHICAGO, Dec. 7. - ') - The
door may be opened for either Notre
Dame, Nebraska, Michigan State or
Marquette to join the Western Ath-
letic Conference, better known as the
Big Ten, before another football sea-
son rolls around.
Proposed plans to merge the Uni-
versity of Chicago and Northwestern
University, a move that would auto-:
matically reduce the conference's
membership to nine and leave a spot
open, were reported progressing so
rapidly today by its proponents that
the consolidation may be effected by
the time the 1934 fall term opens.
Chicago May Be Out
Under the merger plan North-
western would become strictly an
undergraduate school, and Chicago
would revert to a post-graduate uni-
versity. Graduates aren't allowed to
compete in college football in the
Big Ten, so the football players would
all go to Northwestern.
Of the four probable candidates
for membership in the Big Ten Mich-
igan State was regarded as the most
probable choice of the conference
leaders. Nebraska was considered too
far removed from Conference ter-
ritory as well as belonging to the Big
Six, an enterprising-group; the old
feud between Fielding H. Yost, of
Michigan, and the late Knute K.
Rockne probably would block Notre
Dame's request for admission where-.
as Marquette's football team last sea-
son was far below Big Ten standard.
State Is Strong
Michigan State for years has been
one of the real strong teams of Amer-
ican foot ball, holding Michigan's
championship teams of 1930 and '31
to scoreless ties. During the 1933
campaign Michigan State piled up
one of the best records in the coun-
try although Michigan beat its old
rival, 20 to 6.
On the other hand several confer-
ence members undoubtedly would like
to have Nebraska as a rival for the
Big Ten championship. Iowa and
Minnesota already are great rivals
of the Cornhuskers, who have domi-
nated the Big Six almost without in-
terruption since the conference was
formed and demonstrated their abil-
iyt to take care of themselves in any
college football league,
If the Northwestern-Chicago mer-
ger is effected by next fall, prospects
are that the Big Ten will proceed'
as the "big nine" at least until 1935
as all football schedules for 1934 are

The accomplishments of the past
four years stand out, they were the

be made with the last four teams that
the great field marshal and strategist,
Yost himself, turned out. Those are
the teams from which the present

four that Yost personally tutored.
And all four of them either won out-

points, as against 66 for their oppo-

won 28 of them. One ended as a tie,

famous "Battle of the Mud" against
Northwestern in 1925.
