But one thing about the Mich-

Monday night was reflected at yes-

that the Wolverines appeared at a
great disadvantage, and no one in the
largest crowd of the year was not
aware of that.
Whether the team was in a slump
after winning seven of eight games
before the Conference opener or
whether the team's showing was tof

definite indication that a shakeup
was imminent.

-- Y

I WHEN THE shouting was all over
Monday night after the anti-
climactic overtime period in which
Michigan lost its opening Big Ten
basketball game the fans suddenly
realised that Michigan had per-
formed very poorly and the poorest
of the lot had been John Gee.
They failed to realise that the
most highly handicapped player on
the floor was that selfsame John

Cappon's first move was to shift
John Gee, the elongated sophomore
ceter who had led the Wolverines in
the early games, to the second team,
replacing him with Matt 1Iatanelli,
who finished the Buckeye game at
the pivot position.
Despite Gee's brilliant play in the
early games, his failure to display
any degree of polish or of the spark
which he had shown in leading his
team to a victory over Michigan State
led to his replacement.
Cappon used Captain Plummer and
Rudness at the guards on the first
team in an extended scrimmage, with
Dick Joslin and John Jablonski at
the forwards.
Most discouraging to the Wolverine
coach was the offensive and defensive
slump into which the team lapsed af-
ter establishing a 10-point lead in the
first eight minutes, without allowing
the Buckeyes a goal from the field.
Buckeyes Forge Ahead
The Buckeyes shoved ahead in the
second period to an eight-point lead
before a barrage of Michigan shots
tied the score at the end of regula-
tion time.
The erratic play which character-
ized the Ohio State game was what
Cappon had early marked as a chief
fault of his squad, and indications are
that the original program to elimin-
ate the lapses in all departments will
be followed.
The original line-up of the first
weeks will be changed, however, and
experiments with personnel as well as
in practice appears as certain.

Tolan Recovers Slowly.

Wilmer Allison wasn't needed by the United States Davis Cup team in its futile effort to wrest the Davis
Cup from England this summer, but at the end of the ycar the United States Lawn Tennis Association ranked
him as the No. 1 singles player of the country. Sidney Wood, conceded by most tennis experts to be poten-
tially the best singles player in the United States, showed flashes of championship form at times, and at other
times disappointed badly. Frank X. Shields, No. 1 man'last year, carried the brunt of the American campaign for
the Davis Cup with Wood. Shields began a movie carer a few weeks ago.

run of mortals are self-conscious
about those characteristics, and Gee
is no exception.
He realised Monday night that
most of the 4,000 people in the
stands were counting upon his enor-
mous height to give Michigan the
advantage over the shorter Buckeye
players. Any 19-year old kid making
his debut in Conference competition
could be excused for tightening up
under the circumstances. And after
a few minutes of play he must have
realised himself that he wasn't
"hot" as he had been against Mich-
igan State, and promptly lost any
poise he had developed in seven pre-
season games.
It may be true that Gee is not
yet ready for Conference competi-
tion. He has greater handicaps than
most to overcome, but he certainly
can't be acused of not trying.
