Coach Cappon
Tries New Duo
At Guard Posts
Varsity Five Looks Ragged
In Scrimmages Against
Reserve Quintets
The first change of any kind to ap-
pear in the first string basketball line-
up this season was made yesterday b
Coach Franklin Cappon when he tried
Earl Meyers, regular forward last year
who reported for the first time last
week, and Herm Fishman, sophomore
at the two guard positions in place of
Capt. Chelso Tamagno and George
There was no implications that
Coach Cappon intends to replace h
first string guards in the starting
lineup against Michigan Normal Satn
urday night, but seemed only an at-
tempt to coordinate a second pai
of guards with John Gee and John
and Earl Townsend.
No Scarcity Of Guards
Fishman earned an opportunity to
work with the Varsity by his aggres-
sive play on the second five and fine
under-the-basket shots. Should he
gain a first string post he would be the
second sophomore to make the Var-
sity this year. John Townsend is
the other second-year man.
Cappon should not suffer from any
scarcity of guards this year for he
has not only four lettermen includ-
ing Captain Tamagno, Rudness, Matt
Patanelli, and Dick Evans, at this
position, but also a number of cap-
able sophomores. In past years most
any one of these men might have
rated the Varsity five and keen com-
petition for the starting defense po-
sitions is sure to continue through the
A series of scrimmages showed a
ragged Varsity offense with numerous
fumbles and wild passes. On the de-
fense the first string five showed up
better but still was unable to pile up
any decisive margin over the reserves.
Townsend Guards Pivot
John Townsend looked best on de-
fense, guarding the pivot man and
batting down many passes to the cen-
ter forcing the reserve quintets to
work under the basket from the side.
John, instead of guarding the pivoter
from behind in the conventional
manner, works on the side until the
pivoter moves deep into the foul lane
when he comes out in front. Because
of his superior heighth and weight
this style has proved successful in
breaking up most every pivot attack
that he has run up against.
The first real test of this defense
technique should come a week from
this Saturday when Michigan meets
Michigan State at Yost Field House.
Busse, veteran Spartan center, should
give John plenty of opportunity to re-
veal its worth.

COINCIDENTAL with the selection
of Matt Patanelli to lead the
Michigan football team in 1936 the
jinx which has followed winners of
the Chicago Alumni Trophy is re-
called. Patanelli alone of all the
winners of the trophy given outstand-
ing freshman gridders each spring
since 1925 has to date avoided the
The trophy was awarded for th
first time to Ray Baer, a guard, an
injuries checked his play for thre
years. Even so, Baer was an out
standing player but never gaine
recognition because of the attentio
given the All-American aerial com-
bination, Friedman to Oosterbaan
The second winner was George Rich,
a fullback, and although captain of
the 1928 team his play never reached
the expectations of his coaches.
In 1927 the winner was Le-
Verne Taylor, a graduate of Ann
Arbor High School and one of
the greatest all-around athletes
ever to enter Michigan, and with
him the injury jinx first struck
seriously. After scoring the first
touchdown ever made in the new
s'ta ho^m against Ohio Wesleyan
in 1927, Taylor's athletic career
was cut short in the next game;
with Wisconsin, when he received
a broken neck vertebrae.
Danny Holmes, 1928 winner, was
nother disappointment, and after
a spotty and discouraging career he
left school without his degree. In
1929 Roy Hudson received the award,
and although captain of the 1932
eam his form never reached that
shown as a freshman, and in addi-
;ion his play was completely eclipsed
by that of two brilliant stars, Doc
Morrison and Bill Hewitt.
Estil Tessmer, winner in 1930, was
;he victim of misfortune in two
orms as he was eclipsed by Harry
Newman's sensational play and put
on the sidelines by broken bones.
Following Tessmer was Herm Ever-
iardus, and probably the most suc-
;essful in the end of all the winners.
Although out place with his offensive
ability on a team which had little
aeed of his style of play, and al-
hough eclipsed by All-Americans
Jhuck Bernard and Whitey Wistert,
Everhardus was named an All-Con-
ference halfback in 1933.
Gerald Ford, 1932 winner, was
voted most valuable man on the
1934 team and ended by playing
at center in the East-West New
Year's game of 1935, but he too
played with a bad knee which
handicapped him during his sen-
ior year after sitting on the
bench for two years with Ber-
nard in the starting lineup.
'After one of the most sensational
bits of individual play ever seen
in a spring game, Mike Savage was
given the award in 1933, but he never
approached that play in three sea-
sons of Varsity service.
Patanelli was the winner in 1934,
and Bob Cooper received the trophy
last spring, hailed as a key in the
recovery plans of this year's foot-
ball team. Early season injuries kept
him idle, however, and he was given
but five minutes of play in the last
scrimmage of the pre-season train-
ing before he suffered a knee injury
which kept him idle for the entire
1935 season.
Patanelli, in contrast to practically
every winner, has escaped the injury
jinx, has avoided eclipse as a Var-
sity started at end for two years,
and climaxed his first two years of
play with selection on numerous all-
Conference squads despite the show-
ing of his own team. He also won
"iron-man" honors on the 1935 team,
playing 472 minutes of a possible

Jack West, football coach at the University of North Dakota, has
revived the idea of the 12-man grid squad on which the extra player
would call signals for the team on cffense, but would leave the gridiron
when his eleven lost the ball. West believes that under this system
teams that lose their quarterback through injury or other unforeseen
circumstances would not suffer such a great loss as they would still
have a man who could call the signals and follow the coach's orders.
It would also allow men who are physically handicapped to participate'
in the game without danger of injury.

The American sporting public,
having had its fill of intercollegiate
football for the time being, is now
turning its attention toward the va-
rious indoor sports and as far as
the local aspect is concerned Mich-
igan's five Varsity teams that earn
their glory during the winter all seem
Coach Matt Mann's swimmers are
not only defending a Western Confer-
,nce tifle but also a national crown;
she hockey and indoor track teams
are also defending Big Ten titles
while in basketball and wrestling
Michigan appears stronger than it
has for several years.
Swimmers Defend Two Titles
Captain Fehsenfeld will not lead
his natators into dual competition
until after the Christmas holidays.
During that time part of the squad
will practice under the warm Florida
sun at Ft. Lauderdale. Swimming
experts are conceding the Wolverines
a big edge over other Mid-Western
competition and do not expect
Mann's charges to experience real
trouble until the national meet next
Michigan and Minnesota are the
only conference schools boasting
hockey teams and any claim of a
championship rests on the outcome
of the home-and-home series be-
tween these sextets. Coach Eddie
Lowrey expects to have another
strong team, especially the second
O.S.U. Greatest Rival
Again Michigan and Ohio State are
dominating the Big Ten track and
field picture with the great Jesse*
Owens carrying the most of the
Buckeye hopes. Last year the Wol-
verines won both the indoor and the
outdoor championships and paced by
a great group of proven point-get-
ters again rate as favorites. The in-
door meet will be held in Chicago late
in the winter with Coach Hoyt's Wol-
verines ready to score in practically
every event, a factor that may over-
come the first places chalked up by
Ohio's star.
With the Wolverines doped to re-
peat in these three sports, Coach
Franklin C. Cappon's cagers have al-
ready won themselves recognition

Ritz Shirts
Bath Robes

with an impressive win in their first
game and are rated as one of the
strongest teams in the Conference.
Purdue, as ever, is a favorite for the
title, but Michigan also has strong
hopes of at least a share in it. They
will make their second appearance
Saturday night in the Field House
against the Ypsilanti cagers.
In wrestling Michigan may be the
according to advance reports and
several individual, crowns and pos-
sibly the team championship are
not out of the question.
