Michigan's Five Banned CagersWill Beturn To ActionTi


New Varsity
Five Exhibits.
Scoring Punch
Patanelli, Joslin, Evans,
Meyers, And Solomon
Form First Team
Michigan's newly-constructed Var-
sity basketball team, selected from a
group of 10 reserves after Cappon
barred four members of his original
five for breaking training, exhibited
plenty of scoring punch in a two-
hour scrimmage against the fresh-
men yesterday.
Capt. Al Plummer, Chelse Tamagno,
John Jablonski, George Rudness, erst-
while regulars, and Jack Teitelbaum,
first string substitute. whn are su.s-
pended from play in the Illinois and.
Northwestern games, will return to
practice Tuesday following the Wild-
cat game, in an attempt to win their
positions back.
Confer With Cappon
The decision was made yesterday
following a conference between theI
five banned players and Coach Cap-
pon, in which they sincerely professed
intentions of complying with the
training regulations in effect.
Disphlying aggressiveness, fast
passing, and consistent drive into the
basket for lay-up shots, the two new
combinations of teams ran up high
scores on - the freshman in three!
of the five scrimmages.
A first team which is now tenta-
tively slated to start the Illinois
game, consisted of Matt Patanelli,
center; Harry Solomon and Dick Jos-
lin, forwards; Dick Evans and Earl
Meyers, guards.
Possess Experience
This quintet is not lacking in ex-
perience for Patanelli played regular-
ly since the Ohio State game two
weeks ago, Joslin and Evans are let-
ter meni from last year, and,,Meyers
and, Solomon have also been used in
games this season. However, this line-
up is subject to last-minute revision.
Designated as the second team,
John Gee. center; Bob Hill and Chris
Everhardus, forwards; John Rieck
and Russ Oliver, guards, showed more
scoring ability against the second
freshman team than the first Varsity
five flashed against the regular fresh-
men. Hill and Oliver were constant-
ly shaking their guards loose under
the net for short shots. Hill uses
either hand on one-handed shots with
more effect than any other man on

APPARENTLY more than one per-
son has been stewing about what'sI
wrong with our basketball team. No*
sooner had yesterday's letter ap-E
peared than Observer II shot in his
contribution. This writer is just as
sure as the first one was that he
knows exactly what's wrong with the
team. If Coach Cappon wants a1
couple of amateur coaches we'll be
glad to supply him with names:
It is as much a breach of confi-
dence for a newspaperman to di-
vulge his news sources as a doc-
tor to tell professional medical
secrets of a patient, but suffice iRt
to say that neither yesterday's
letter nor today's was written by
any newspaperman in Ann Arbor
nor under the direction of any
local sport correspondent.1
To the Editor:j
Some of the players wearing
Michigan uniforms this year are
getting away with murder! Jos-t
lin and Teitelbaum will break up
any passing- attack that their
teammates try to start. You can
have a series of short, certain
passes that are definitely getting
the ball to a desired spot by four
men, and the fifth, Joslin or Teit-
elbaum, will stop passing, dribble
and shoot. Both, apparently, do
this whenever they get their
hands on the ball. They shoot
off-balance and without looking
for the basket. Consequently an
overly large percentage of their
shots will miss, shots that
shouldn't have been taken in the
first place.
Michigan coaches spent four
years on "Big Ed" Garner before
he was worth his salt. But, in
his senior year, he was one of the
leading scorers in the Conference.
Surel they can give Gee two
years! He is not ready for big
time. He likes to workland should
be given plenty of attention and
coaching because he will make
Michigan a valuable man in a
year or two. Gee can't even out-
play the freshman center, Town-
send, so he is out of his class
against Conference centers.,
The present team needs Rud-
the squad, while Oliver's play is great-
ly improved.
George Ford, speedy forward, who
has been handicapped with injuries
for three weeks, will alternate with
Solomon and Joslin, at a regular for-
ward post.
The cagers will leave for Cham-
paign at 8:30 tonight after a work-
out in the afternoon. Cappon an-
nounced yesterday that the entire
souad of 11 men will make the trip.

ness as much as I need two
thumbs on my left hand. He is
too fast for his teammates and
his speed does harm three times
as often as it helps. He can't
shoot long shots. A good indi-
vidual, he hurts the teamwork
more than he helps it.
Patanelli is afraid to shoot!
Four points would be a good night
for him. Ii he could be encour-
aged to shoot he would really de-
serve his first-team position. And
there still is the matter of fol-
lowing in.
Meyers and Rieck deserve more
attention. Both have played too
much high-scoring basketball to
be left on the bench. Meyers
should be teamed with Evans at
the guards while Rieck, Rudness,
and Plummer act as understudies.
Rieck might be the forward to
use with Ford because when
either is "hot" it means a dozen
points which Michigan certainly
needs. Rieck is faster than Mey-
ers and has a better cut while
Meyers is the better passer. It
is true enough, though, that Mey-
ers likes one side of the floor too
Rudness fits in with that five
as well as Hitler would as a frat-
ernity pledge. A few of the so-
called regulars have been given
a rude awakening and Michigan,
I believe, will not lose so many
Conference games, henceforth.

Coach Cliff Keen will take nine men
with him when the wrestling squad
leaves at 1 p.m. today for Evanston
After meeting Northwestern at Patton
Gymnasium tomorrow afternoon the
matmen will go to Chicago where
they will meet the Maroons Monday.
The nine men selected to make the
trip are: 118 pounds, Chuck Brooks;
126 pounds, Alan Rubin; 135 pounds
Wally Heavenrich; 145 pounds, Cap-
tain Jack Harrod; 155 pounds, Louis

In the 165-pound and 175-pound
lasses Keen is not certain about the
tarters. Frank Bissell, Abe Levine and
3111 Lowell are all making the trip and
each one can wrestle at either weight.
Bissell and Levine won the first Var-
sity matches against the Spartans lasi
week while Lowell has shown up well
in practice this week.
Harold Ross also looked good and
Keen was forced to decide by a flip of
a coin who would go to the opening
Big Ten meet.
Keen also stated that the new scor-
ing method might not be used in the
meets. The Conference rules state
that it can only be used in one meet
during the season and Keen is not
certain whether or not it will be ad-
vantageous to employ it at Evanston
or Chicago.
Dr. Orrin Sturteville's Wildcat
squad is reported to be strong and
the Wolverine matmen will have tc
show improvement over the wrestling
exhibited against Michigan State in
