Petoskey, Oliver, Allen,
Ford And Plummer Are
To Start For Wolverines
Michigan's Varsity basketball team
will open its home season in a game
with Michigan State in Yost Field
House at 7:30 tonight.
The Wolverine squad has come a
long way since being defeated by
Western State Monday night and
may upset the confident Green and
White sharpshooters.
Coach Franklin Cappon gave his
team a light work-out in the Field
House last evening, then sent them
home to get a lot of sleep. He an-
nounced that he will start the same
five men who started the Western
State game. This will put Allen at
center, Ford and Plummer at the for-
word positions, and Capt. Petoskey
and Oliver at the guards.
Cappon expressed himself as satis-
fied with the improvement his men
have shown in practice this week.
They have eliminated the glaring
faults revealed in Monday's game,
and while their passing is still ragged
and their shots often awry', they
can be counted upon to get more
than three field goals against the
A number of Wolverine reserves
will probably see service during the
evening. Jablopski, who starred in
the "B" team game last week, may
get his chance at center while Re-
geczi, Tessmer, Borgmann, Rudness,.
Fishman and several others may also
appear in the line-up.


Team Wins Second Game From M-O Sextet 3 To


University Squash
Team Enters Class
A Interclub Circuit
A University of Michigan squash
racquets team sponsored by the In-
tramural department has been en-
tered in tite Michigan Inter-Club
Squash Racquets League and will
play a series of home-and-home
matches with other members of the
league, according to an announce-
ment of the Intramural department.
The University has entered a team
in other years, but in Class B, this
being the first time that a University
team will compete in Class A.
The University team is scheduled
to meet the Adams Y. M. C. A. of
Detroit at the Adams gym next Mon-
day in the first match. Other mem-
bers of the league entered are the
University Club, Detroit Athletic
Club, Detroit Racquets Club, and
Country Club, all of Detroit. The
schedule of the league calls for a
match between the Detroit Racquets
Club and the Michigan entry in the
Intramural courts next Wednesday at
5 p. m.
The five man University team will
be picked from several candidates,
including Ernie Vick, former Wolver-
ine All-American center, Robert An-
gell, of the faculty, Ray Fiske, re-
tiring Varsity football manager,
Louie Westover, Varsity gridder, Bill
Schneider, local sports official, and
E. B. Smith and Randolph Webster
of the Intramural department.
Yost Will Not
Coneede theory
Of Defense Play
Fielding H. Yost, grand old man
of Michigan football and member of
the National Rules Committee, turned
a deaf ear toward suggestions that
the defense now has most of the ad-
vantage on the gridiron.
Yost argues that when Army and
Notre Dame pile up a total of 25
points in. their annual game, it indi-
cates there can be plenty of scoring
under present rules, "if you have
teams which are trained to get touch-
Princeton 27 and Yale 2, Southern
California 31 and Georgia 0, Florida
scoring 19 points on Maryland, Villa-
nova 18 and Rutgers 13 should sat-
isfy people who like scoring," he said.
"Recently," Yost continued, "I
heard a coach complain that the de-
fense has all the advantage and in
the next breath he appealed to any
and all present to tell him how his
team could stop that rival halfback
in his game."
The rule which makes a fumbled
ball dead has done a great deal for
the offense, in Yost's opinion.
"If you let defense players run
with a recovered fumble, lateral
passes and other sensational plays
would disappear again immediately,"
he said. "And it seems to me there
already is sufficient penalty for the
mechanical error of fumbling. Loss of
the ball means loss of position on the
field, which is a very important fac-

Miehigan Shows
Improvement In'
Passes, Defense
Overtime Period Needed
For Decision; Winning
Goal Made By Sherf
With a burst of speed in an over-
time period, Michigan's hockey team
eked out a 3 to 2 win over a fast
Amherstburg outfit last night on the
Varsity Arena. Paced by Johnny
Sherf with two goals and an assist,
the Wolverines displayed a distinctly
improved form over their perform-
ance against Dearborn last Tuesday.
Sherf, the fastest skater on the
squad, showed improved art in hand-
ling the puck and a tendency to bet-
ter teamwork. His two solo dashes
for scores in the second and over-
time periods and his pass to Artz for
a tally in the first period were the
deciding factors in the Michigan vic-
In the initial period play was un-
usually fast and the visitors kept
the puck in Wolverine territory most
of the time. Larry David, Michigan
right defense, and Johnny Jewell,
goalie, were the stars on defense in
the period, preventing opposition
scores by their heads-up work. Mich-
igan's smooth team-work was evi-
dent from the first, and especially so
when Sherf passed neatly to Avon
Artz, who scored from a pile-up in
front of the goal after eight minutes
of play.
The Amherstburg passing was
ragged throughout the game, but in
the second period the Green-White
forward combination pierced the
Michigan first-line defense almost at
will. The Wolverine secondary de-
fense, Ted Chapman and Larry Da-
vid, performed up to par and only
once in this period were the oppo-
sition able to penetrate them for a
cAfter five minutes of the period
had elapsed, Sherf brought the rub-
ber down the north side of the rink,
evaded two defense men, and flipped
it neatly into the corner of the net.
Nearly ten minutes later Sabine, Am-
herstburg center, managed to man-
euver the puck around the back of
the goal and slip it past Jewell as the
latter threw himself full-length at

the side of the net. It was a clever
bit of puck handling and the smart-
est score of the evening.
In the third canto both defenses
weakened slightly. Renaud tallied in
the middle of the period on a shot
lifted past Jewell's arm to even the
count, two all. Thereafter Michi-
gan held the visitors to center ice
and Ted Chapman stopped several
long drives with his body. With three
minutes to go, Amherstburg rained
shots on Michigan's goalie from all
angles in a final effort to get the
advantage. Jewell stopped thirteen
attempts in this period.
The ten-minute overtime was fast
and wild. Neither team could pass
well. Finally in the second minute
Sherf took the puck from Michigan's
defense line and slid a short shot
past Durham for the winning coun-
ter. Thereafter Amherstburg made
a desperate last stand with five men
up the ice, but could not keep the
puck in hand. Sherf again stood
out, this time on defense, keeping
the sphere out of dangerous terri-
tory until the final gun.
The lack of numerous penalties
was most conspicuous and the game
generally was hard and clean. John
Jewell stopped 33 shots and Durham,
31, a good record for the evening.

Wrestling Meet
Presents Good
165-lb. Bouts
Wrestling fans will have luscious'
pickings next week when the annual
All-Campus wrestling meet rolls
around this Wednesday. The en-
trants will consist mostly of mem-
bers of the Varsity and the freshman
wrestling squads.
The most interesting matches of
the meet are expected to take place
in the 165 pound class. Although
Oren Parker is the favorite for the
winner, he will encounter a world
of opposition in George Lawton, Hil-
ton Ponto and Tony Dauksza.
Parker took part in several bouts
for the Varsity last year but did not
earn a letter. He has been coming
along very well in practise this year
and is the most logical winner of the
event. Lawton is a junior out for
wrestling for the first time. How-
ever, he is built well and has been
working hard from the opening day
of the practise session. Lack of ex-
perience is his handicap but, if he
has assimilated enough of Coach
Keen's tutoring, he may provide a
tough battle and come through a
Hilton Ponto, another of the strong
men who will be in the event, is a
recruit of last year's squad although
he never played a pai-t in the Varsity
meets. He played football this year
and came out late but his experience
might pull him through. Tony Dauk-
sza is another newcomer in wrestling
but was an active in boxing last year
and played on the grid "B" team this
year. He has not been present very
