NEW YORK, Nov. 27.- (A) - Rest-
ing faith in the form charts (a slender
reed if there ever was one), the
Thanksgiving day -football program
lines up about as follows to this per-
haps astigmatic observer:
Fordham-New York University:
The Violets, athletically pure but no
longer blushing, have a .chance to
wind up an undefeated and untied
season. If they win they'll turn an
attentive ear to any post-season bids
but the dope points to Fordham, beat-
en only once in a bone-cracking
Pitt-Carnegie: There's nothing
wrong with Carnegie's defense, but
the Plaid hardly can hope to hold the
Panthers wholly in check. Pitt gets
the call.
Brown Weak
Penn-Cornell: One of those tradi-
tional affairs in which Cornell can
be counted on for its best. On the
basis of developments thus far, how
ever, Penn must be the selection.
Brown-Colgate: Colgate, easily.
Temple-Bucknell: On the rebound
from the Villanova disaster, Temple,
Catholic-North Carolina State:
Well take Catholic and hope for the
George Washington-North Dakota
State: George Washington, but those
Dakotans probably will be tough.
Maryland-Syracuse: Syracuse is
crippled but seems to rate a slight
Vanderbilt-Alabama: The Com-
modores improve steadily, but we'll
string along with Alabama.
Kentucky-Tennessee: Not much
choice. Kentucky.
North Carolina-Virginia: North
Nebraska Favored
Virginia, Military-Virginia Tech:
V.M.I.'s defense seems much the bet-
ter, and Tech gets the call in what
annually is a grade-A toss-up.
Nebraska-Oregon State: No basis
for comparison, but this vote goes
to Nebraska, the home team.
Oklahoma U.-Oklahoma A. and
M.: The University.
Kansas-Missouri: Kansas, timidly.
Texas A. & M. -Texas-A flier on
the Aggies.
St. Mary's-Washington State: St.
Mary's looks too good.
Loyola-West Virginia: The Moun-
taineers will find Loyola's rugged de-
fense tough to crack. A shade for
Xavier-Centenary: Xavier.
Denver-Colorado: Colorado on
the theory the Buffaloes still will be
mad over that Wyoming upset.
Utah-Utah State: On the toss of
a coin, Utah.
Texas Tech.-Detroit: Detroit. s
Olympic Call
Forces Bietilak
Out Of School
Walter Bietila, one of the six U.S.

Olympic entries in the Ski Jump in
Germany this winter, left the Uni-
versity yesterday to begin training inl
Ishpeming, his home town. Walter,
19-year-old sophomore, is scheduled
to sail for Germany January 3rd.
He plans to train all next month
with his four brothers, all of whom
have gained national recognition as
ski-riders. His younger brother, Paul
holds the junior ski-jump record of
208 feet.
Bietila will be unable to resume
his studies at the University until
next fall, as the Winter Olympics
will not get under way until late in
February, after the second semester
has started. This may prove to be
an unfortunate consequence for the
Varsity baseball team, which might
have used Bietila in its infield this

Chicago Tribune Poll
Hardly Necessary Here
Bold headlines in yesterday's
Chicago Tribune flashed the news
that Bill Renner had been selected
as the most valuable player on the
Michigan team. The reason that
Ann Arbor papers didn't carry the
story was that everyone in Ann
Arbor and a great many people
outside of Ann Arbor knew that
Bill Renner was Michigan's most
valuable player. But The Tribune
annually awards a trophy to the
Western Conference player who is
judged most valuable in the Big
Ten, and so asked the Wolverine
squad to vote on the question. Out
of 25 ballots cast, Renner re-
ceived 23 votes, one of which was
not his own.
Varsity Cagers
To Play Calvin
Monday Night
Townsend Brothers, Gee,
Rudness And Tomagno
Scheduled To Start
The Michigan basketball squad
continued preparation for the open-
ing game against the Calvin College
five at Grand Rapids Monday night,
yesterday, going through the usual
offensive drills and scrimmages.
Coach Cappon is not taking any
chances, remembering last year's
game with the Calvin five which
Michigan won-in the closing minutes
25 to 22 after trailing 18 to 7 at the
half, and is working his quintet hard
in an effort to develop a high scoring
machine that will not have trouble
with the Grand Rapids team.
Degroot, who caused the Wolver-
ines so much trouble in the 1935
opener, has graduated but Broene,
veteran forward and center, will be
in the lineup along with Harkema,
a capable ball-handler, and Don
Green, who scored nine points to tie
with Broene for scoring honors in
the Calvin opener against Battle
Creek College last week.
Coach Cappon had the same first
[team on the floor yesterday that he
has been using in recent weeks and
the combination which will start in
the opener. It is made up of John
and Earl Townsend at forwards, John
Gee at the center post, and George
Rudness and Capt. Chelso Tomagno
at guards.
John Townsend and Gee do most
of the pivot work with the other three
men working from behind the foul
Neither Earl Meyers, high-scorer
on last year's squad, or Matt Pat-
anelli, Varsity guard last season, has
reported for practice yet. They will
probably begin working out next
week and must be consdered before
anything more than a tentative first
team can be selected.
Ray Fisher To Cut
Frosh Court Squad
Still without the services of the
yearling football men, Ray Fisher's
freshman basketball squad, number-
ing 36 at present, will continue to
work out nightly in Waterman Gym.
After the gridders report the squad
will be cut to twenty men, and prac-
tice will be held in the Intramural
The present squad, which has been
selected from a host of aspiring fresh-
men, includes: Miller, Mitchell, In-

This husky Stanford eleven will represent the West in the annual Rose Bowl game to be played at Pasadena New Year's Day. Theqesthon
now bothering officials is not the Stanford team, which will represent we stern footbaII for the third consecutive year, but rather the selection of
an eastern opponent. With Minnesota and Princeton, the logical teams to make the long jaunt definitely prohibited from playing post season
games, officials are in a quandry. Perhaps precedent will be broken this year and either a team from the southwest or a beaten and tied Notre
Dame team will get the bid.
