wolverineQuintetTo Meet Illinois At Champaign T


Coach Cappon
Has Confidence
In New Five
Harry Solomon, Forward,
Is Only Inexperienced
Player To Start
Michigan's Minutemen, molded into
a Varsity basketball team with only
four days of practice, will meet the
University of Illinois quintet tonight
in an attempt to succeed wherein the
former Varsity failed in the last three
games - to win a Conference game.
After practice yesterday, Cappon
confirmed his statement of Thursday
by announcing that his starting line-
up will include Matt Patanelli, center:
Dick Joslin and Harry Solomon, for-
wards; Earl Meyers and Dick Evans
11 Men Make Trip
Thet entire squad of 11 men, ex-
cluding the five veterans who were
benched last Tuesday for breaking
training, made the trip.
Meyers, Evans, and Solomon will be
starting their first game as regulars.1
Meyers and Evans have played as
substitutes in most of the games to
date, but Solomon's Varsity experi-
ence is limited to three minutes in
the Michigan Normal game. However,
Solomon is a cagyl player, possessing
several unorthodox shots which are
hard to guard.
Despite the sudden changes in his
lineup, Cappon is not conceding any-
thing to the Illini. He believes that}
his present five has enough abilityI
to push the high-scoring Illinois team
to the limit, and he wouldn't be to-
tally surprised if the Wolverines come
out on the long end of the score.
Cappon thinks that his entire squad
is, better than the average, forming
three teams of nearly equal ability.f
But there is not one high-scoring
cager in the whole bunch! An exam-

Well, we sat back and read
this column for two mornings
and we are at the end of our pa-
tience. We hate to see these ob-
servers, who seemingly know very
little about the game, misinform-
ing the campus. This suspension
which is undoubtedly an alibi for
Michigan's lack of success in the
Big Ten has drawn altogether too
much amateur comment. This{
ruing of Michigan's best basket-
ball players is a laugh (allowing
of course that Cappon is able to
pick the best basketball players.)
Take Rudness for instance; the
player who has in each game
\watched the best man the oppo-
nents possessed, and who has been
the sparkplug of Michigan's of-
fense: does he deserve such abu-
sive criticism? Can the 5,000 fansj
who rose and applauded when he
left the Ohio State game be
Observers 1.
To the Editor:
Evidently your previous observ-
ers know very little about bas-
ketball. Even Cappon who places
a premium on height will admit
that speed is a great asset to a
player. Who could say that a
guard could lead his team in scor-
ing with practically all set-ups
and still not be in condition. Does
the public know that the suspend-
ed players knew nothing of the
action until the notice appeared
in the paper? Did Observer I ever
play basketball? If he had he cer-
tainly would know that it is hard
enough to get one team that will
click without attempting the im-
possible and trying to have two.
It is apparent to any basketball
player that all Michigan needs
is control of the tip to have a
well-rounded team. C a p t a i n
Plummer is a good shot, excellent
guarder, and fast enough to takeI
care of the average forward. In
Rudness Michigan has a star
whether he plays forward or
guard. In his present position at
guard he is the class of the court,
one of the few men who can
watch his man and the ball at
the same time. Who could guard
Herrick of State, Poser of Wiscon-
sin, and Dye of Ohio as effectively
as Rudness did? All of them, the
stars of their respective teams,
could collect but eighteen points
against this midget.
Wouldn't you, as a sports
writer, say that the criticism that
appeared in your column recently
is very unjust?
An Observer Who Has Played
At least two erroneous im-
pressions were given by Observer
II yesterday. Both show a lack
of observation on the part of the
observer, and are slanderous as-
saults upon the ability of two
cagers of undisputed merit.
I refer to the statement in yes-
terday's letter that Teitelbaum's
individual play breaks up the
teamwork of his mates. Cappon
regards Teitelbaum as a clever
floorman, a good ball handler,
and a reliable team player. Far
from taking shots off balance, his1

fault lies in being too cautious.
Observer II says that Gee can't
even out-play Townsend, fresh-
man center. This is a slam at
Townsend, for right now John
Townsend is good enough to play
regularly on the Varsity.
A Vindicator.
Observers III apparently do not
know Cappon if they think he would
bench five players to provide an alibi
-for a losing team. Two years ago sev-
eral members of Michigan's national
championship football team were sus-
pected of breaking training and it
was Cappon who demanded before
the coaching board that the offenders,
be benched, even though it meant los-
ipg every remaining game.
I believe with Observer Who Has
Played Basketball that Observer I
was undoubtedly prejudiced in his
evaluation of the individual members
of the team. The chief purpose in
printing that letter was to express
the idea it contained that Cappon
should concentrate on building a team
instead of a group of individuals.
A for the recent "benching" it is
only fair to Cappon to point out that
he benched the five players, not be-
cause they were not in condition, but
because they weren't making the
slightest attempt to follow training
rules which are universally accepted.
Most Michigan coaches, including
Harry Kipke and Franklin Cappon
do not demand rigid adherence to any
iron-bound rules, even permitting ath-

showing in practice this week. The

good showing and feel confident of
success in both meets.

Illini In Fifth Place
The Illini, in fifth place with two
wins and two losses, have three menI
among the ten high scorers of the
Conference. Froschauer, forward, is
third with 34 points, Riegel, six foot
four inch center, is sixth with 31
points, with Combes, forward, in tenth
place with 26 tallies.
Illinois uses a fast-breaking offense
built around these three men, butl
the defense is only average. IndianaI
and Purdue ran up 42 and 37 points1
respectively against the Illini. Accord-
ing to Coach Oosterbaan, who scouted
Illinois, Froschauer,ba well-coordinat-
ed player in all departments of the
game is the spark of the Illini attack.
Riegel is a good performer on the pivoti
line, and his height should enable him
to control the jump against both Pat-
anelli and Gee.
The men who made the trip are:
Gee and Patanelli, centers; Joslin,
Solomon, Everhardus, Ford, and Hill,
forwards; Meyers, Evans, Rieck, and
Oliver, guards.

The entire squad will compete in'
today's events, which will begin at
3 p.m.
Willis Ward, the bulwark of the
team, will make his first appearance
of the year and will compete in two
events. Ward, who has been practic-
ing less than two weeks, will confine'
his activities to the 60-yard dash,
which event he won in last year's in-
door Conference meet, and the shot
Ward To Race Barnes
A close race is expected in the 60-
yard dash, with Ward paired against
Dave Barnes, a junior star who qual-
ified in last year's Conference meet,
but who was later forced from com-
petition with an injured knee.
Barnes, who has been working out
regularly since early fall, has defeat-
ed Ward several times in practice
trials, but the big star's condition has
come along fast in the last two days,
according to Coach Chuck Hoyt, and
a close finish is looked for.
Sam Stoller, the sophomore sprint
star, will compete in the second heat
of the dash.
The schedule of events: 60-yard
dash, first heat, 3 p.m.; mile run, 3:15
p.m.; 60-yard dash, second heat, 3:20
p.m.; high hurdles, 3:25 p.m.; 440-
