Michigan, Led By Captain W/HEN AN EASTERN sports writer admits that a Big Ten team is "good"
Smith And Willis Ward, that's news. For that reason we reprint here a piece composed by

Is Heavily Favored
Led by Captain Harvey Smith and
Willis Ward, a 12-man Wolverine
track squad will open its Conference
indoor season tonight with Minnesota
Michigan, Big Ten champions in-
doors, will be top-heavy favorites tos
take the measure of the Gophers des-
pite the small squad, the Minnesota
narmpresenting outstanding per-
formers in but two or three events
after being hard hit by ineligibility
in the first term.
Ward has been named by Coach
Charlie Hoyt to enter three events.
the 60-yard dash, high hurdles, and
shot put. He will not be entered in
his favorite event, .the high jump,
with Konrad Moisio, a letter winner,
being counted on to register points
The Wolverine captain, Harvey
Smith, hasbeen named for the half-
Imile and mile runs.
The outstanding track event of the
meet is expected to be the meeting
in the two-mile run of Wayne Sloc-
um, Gopher sophomore, and Neree
Alix, Michigan's two-mile indoor
Conference champion, and Walter
I Stone, Wolverine sophomore who has
been credited with victories over Alix.
The Gophers will present a tradi-
tionally strong entry in the shot put,
but Ward is expected to place with
Domic Krezowski and Stan Kostka,
the Minnesota weight stars.
The meet will be the first Con-
ference experience for the six sopho-
mores who made the trip, including
Sam Stoller in the dash event, Bob
Osgood in the hurdles and relay,
Howard Davidson and Fred Stiles,
relay and quarter-mile run, Clayton
Brelsford, half-mile and mile, and

FOR A GOOD MANY YEARS now we've been hearing glowing reports of
this thing called "Indiana basketball." Occasionally it has got a wee
bit annoying, too. After all, there are 47 other states full of able-bodied,
full-blooded young athletes who must know something about the rather
rudimentary routine of tossing a ball through a ring.c
But I am a tolerant sort of fellow -- broad-minded and all that - so
when Purdue came into Madison Square Garden the other evening your
dutiful observer was around to try and find out what made all native Hoosiersf
so "that way" about the basketball they were brought up on.
I found out. Yessir, the boys have something there.
Ward "Piggy" Lambert, a wizened little fellow who's getting almost
completely gray in spite of the fact his Boilermakers have won three Big
Ten titles in the last five years - and seven in the last 14 - brought a squad1
of 100 per cent Hoosier home-breds into the Garden and they did their stuff
in most rollicking and crowd-pleasing style.
"We're just down here to try and show the folks some high-geared
basketball," Piggy said just as his boys stepped on the court. "Maybe the1
folks won't think it's any better than the metropolitan style of set offenses,
but I think they'll enjoy it."
XWHEREUPON the Boilermakers- went into action with a flurry of fast
breaks, long dribbling drives under the basket, nifty long-range shoot-
ing and beautiful follow-up work under the hoop that had the crowdx
"ohing" and "ahing" continually and left Fordham's untalented but hard-
fighting team far behind at halftime, 29-15.
It was pretty obvious that the visitors knew they weren't going to have
any trouble winning this game and they were out to put on just as enter-
taining a show as possible. They blazed away from any and all distances
and positions and hit the hoop with amazing accuracy.
They hauled off and slung that basketball just as far as they could,
several times, gleefully trying to score on ultra-long-pass plays - and sev-
eral times they did click, with Norm Cotton leaping into the air to snare
passes after the manner of a football end, and then flashing under the
basket to score.
Whenever and wherever they got the ball, the Boilermakers "went for
the bucket" with it, as the Hoosier saying goes. Practically never did they
wait around in back court until the other team's defense had formed, and
then come "tunking" the ball up the floor, as is too much the pattern of'
most cage games nowadays.
In other words it was the "fast break" game at its best, and for crowd
pleasing it's got this systematized, slow-break, criss cross passing and block
play style beaten 40 ways from Sunday.
Of course, I understand the Boilermakers aren't quite so fancy and care-
free in their games with Big Ten teams and other high-ranking fives in
their own section. (Fordham, of course, is by no means the strongest in
the New York area.)
NEVERTHELESS there was something distinctive about the "basketmind-
edness" of those Purdue boys. They were by all odds the most accurate
shooting team to show in New York this season, with the possible exception
of Long Island University's uncanny marksmen, and they showed a clever-
ness about getting their shots away while on the fly that none of the metro-
politan teams can match.
Incidentally the work of Stanley Feezle, diminutive Indianapolis referee
who officiated the Purdue-Fordham game, may have been a revelation to
those who are interested in making basketball more popular in the East.
Stanley went right to work from the opening tip-off, pounced on the
first two instances of contact that could possibly be interpreted as holding
fouls (they were fouls, too, but of the sort too often overlooked in the East)
and the boys on both teams immediately settled down to play by far the
cleanest game of any produced in the six Garden double-headers to date.
The fact that it was the most entertaining game as well as the cleanest
ought to give Eastern coaches an idea of what a good show basketball can be
when it is played with due regard for the theory that it is a no-contact
game, as the rule book says it is.
And I'll never be annoyed again at Hoosiers bragging about their kind
of basketball. It's swell.
To Battle For1
Miners Present Veteran
Defense; Sherf To Meet,
Former Coach's Team
Michigan's hockey team will in-
vade Houghton tonight for the first
of a two-game series with Michigan
Tech for the mythical state colleg-
iate puck title. It is the second invas-
which the Wolverines have made in
Although still uncertain as to the
action under stress of his new goalie,
Bill Chase, Coach Eddie Lowrey
started on the trip confidently, ex-
pecting to come back with two victor-
ies as the week's returns.
Johnny Sherf, Michigan's captain,
will be "on the spot" as he faces a
team coached by his former Calumet
high school mentor, Coach Savini.
Savini is new at the College of Mines,
having replaced Noblet as tutor for
the skaters only this season.
Under the tutelage of Coach Sav-
ini, a strong defense has been de-
veloped among the Tech skaters.
Goalie Maki, whom Wolverines fans
will recall as having turned in bril-
liant performances in the Coliseum in
telast two years, is still in com-
mand of the Miners' net.
Guarding the Tech territory int
front of the goal are two more veter-
ans, Olsen and Ferris. The latter
was captain of the team last year.
Mort Croze, captain of the present
edition of Tech pucksters, is right
wing and scoring ace of the sextet.
He has been ably supported by Mul-
lins this season.
While Michigan is concentrating
on an impenetrable defense in front
of their goalie, and planning a cau-
tious method of attack, rumor has
leaked through from Calumet that
Captain Sherf's neighbors are out to
get his goat. It appears that they
have decided that if they can get him
sufficiently irritated, and perhaps
really mad, they can leave the ice
with the sdbre in their favor.
As Co-captain Johnny Jewell, who
also hails from Calumet, is still in the
hospital recuperating from an ap-
pendectomy, Bill Chase was selected
to go along to tend the Michigan
Jack Merrill, a newcomer who has
not yet seen action in a game yet,
was also included on the list of play-
ers to go to Houghton. He, with Walt
Courtis and Ed Chase, will supply the
reserve strength for the wings. Vic
Heyliger will handle his usual posi
tion at center, while Larry David
and Don MacCollum will defend the

seasoning this week-end, will be un-
available for the Minnesota series
Feb. 22 and 23.
