Takes 12 Men

Calvin Presents Veteran
Squad; Peculiar Floor
To Hinder Michigan
The Michigan basketball team will
open its 1935-36 schedule tomorrow
night at Grand Rapids against the
Calvin College Knights and begin
what Coach Franklin Cappon hopes
will be one of Michigan's most suc-
cessful seasons.
For the last two years the Wolver-
ines have not ranked high in cage
circles and this year Cappon's out
to regain lost laurels. The Varsity
will be made up of some real basket-
ball players this season, the Wol-
verine coach said, and should do
better than it has in the past.
Cappon announced a squad of 12
men to take the trip including Capt.
Chelso Tomagno, John Gee, George
Rudness, Earl Meyers, Dick Evans,
John and Earl Townsend, Bill Lane,
Don Brewer, Manny Slavin, John
Jablonski, and Herm Fishman.
Gee At Center
Six of these men will be in Michi-
gan uniforms for the first time,
while others are letter winners and
one a member of last year's Varsity
who was forced to drop out before
the end of the season because of in-
Coach Cappon named the starting
at the forward posts,'Gee, center, and
lineup with the Townsend brothers
Captain Tomagno and Rudness at
guards. The Townsends are the
only new members of the Varsity, as
the other three filled the same po-
sitions last year. However, Cappon
and other observers believe that the
addition of the two brothers is going
to make the Wolverines a dangerous
John, a sophomore, will do most of
the pivot work, aided by Gee, six-foot-
eight-inch junior, while Earl is sure
to prove an aid with his fine follow-
in play.
Floor Narrow
The Calvin College five, which gave
the Varsity a scare in last year's
opener, losing a close 25 to 22 de-
cision, will have the advantage of
playing on their home floor, which is
narrower than the standard hard
wood and a handicap to all visiting
quintets, and the added advantage
of having opened their season two
weeks ago.
The Knights are led by Broene,
veteran center and forward, Hark-
ema, and Don Greene. Broene, along
with Degroot who has graduated,
made it a very uncomfortable eve-
ning for the Michigan five last year,
scoring three baskets and playing a
fine floor game.
Matt Patanelli, newly-elected foot-
ball captain and Varsity guard last
season, reported for the first time
yesterday. He is one of the last of the
football players to report for cage
practice. Meyers, Stark Ritchie, Chet
Stabovitz, Joe Rinaldi, and Bill Bar-
clay have been working out all week.
Michioan State Set
For Albion Opener
EAST LANSING, Nov. 30. - ) -
A last hard practice, in which the
squad looked better than at any time
this season, prepared the Michigan
State College basketball team today
for its season's opener with Albion

College Monday, night. It plays the
University of Wisconsin at Madison
next Friday.
The team worked on the floor of
the Boys' Vocational Training School
in last night's windup scrimmage, and
put on a good exhibition of defensive
strength. The game will be played
on that court.
The team was schooled to watch
for a dangerous opponent in Kroeze,
who transferred to Albion from
Grand Rapids Junior College. The
lanky center has the reputation of
being a crack shot around whom the
Grand Rapids team was built last

het 10oiefend Conerence (rown

What with the awful rumpus
everybody not connected with Mich-
igan has been making over the fact
that Herr Kipke's proteges only won
half their games this season, even
normally minded sports followers
have forgotten that Michigan's lone
Conference championship in a major
snort last year, and their most prob-
able crown this year, came from
Coach Eddie Lowrey's Varsity hockey
The Wolverines last winter went
through their most successful season
since the inception of college hockey
at Michigan. They played a seven-
teen game schedule which included
some of the toughest puck teams in
Canada, and finished with a record
of 13 wins, one tie, and 3 defeats.


They won the Western Conference
championship despite the loss of
their only goalie, co-Captain Johnny
Jewell who was stricken with appen-
dicitis in mid season. So perfectly
did the team function, particularly
the defense, that the Wolverines
were able to go on, and lose only one
game the remainder of the year, with
only the inexperienced Bill Chase
in the nets,
Vice Heyliger, Varsity center who
performed brilliantly as a sophomore
and acted as the key to the Mich-
igan offense throughout the season,
was second in scoring only to Johnny
Sherf. Heyliger scored 19 goals and
was credited with 11 assists for a total
of 3 points -not a bad average for
so short a puck season. Vic will be

flanked again this year by flying Dick
Berryman who as a sophomore
counted 5 goals and one assist.
Johnny Sherf, Michigan's immor-
tal devil-mav-care wing who brought
countless crowds to their feet in the
Coliseum with his brilliantly spectac-
ular solo dashes has finished his
career as a Wolverine, but in his
placeris a black-headed stick handler
who teams up with Heyliger better
than Sherf did. He is Johnny Fa-
bello, and the pass-and-pass-back
which he and Heyliger make use of
is one of the most effective scoring
plays in hockey.
With the return of Gib James the
second semester, Michigan should
have an even stronger team than last
