I-M Soorts
A new system of I-M numeral
awards has been worked out by in-
tramural officials this year with the
result that 150 men will be given their
class numerals at the end of the in-
tramural sports season. Thirty of
the awards will be given for partici-
pation in group activities and the re-
mainder for individual excellence.
Members of the gymnastic, boxing,

archery, and fencing squads who
practice regularly with those groups
and who enter competition in those
sports will receive their numerals up-
on recommendation of their instruct-

John Sints is one of the sophomore candidates for the forward
position left vacant by the graduation of Norman Cottom, Purdue's
All-American forward in 1934, who is being seriously considered by
Coach Piggy Lamthert. Sines is a product of Jefferson High School of
Lafayette, Ind. and naturally is well acquainted with the fast-breaking
style of the Boilermakers. Jewell Young, John's outstanding rival for the
forward post, was his teammate in high school. In the warm-up games
Lambert has been giving both boys an opportunity to show their fitness
for the starting position.
Townsends Will Renew Many
Old RivalriesDurin Season

When the Michigan basketball
team takes on the Butler University
quintet in Indianapolis on Jan. 2, the
Townsend brothers will begin a long
list of revived rivalries that date
back to 1930 when the oldest of the
two brothers, Earl, was a sophomore
at Technical High School of Indian-
While attending high school both
John and Earl ran up against some
of the outstanding cage stars in the
Middle West today. Ralph Brafford
and Art Gage, members of the But-
ler combination, will be the first of
these that the two brothers will en-
counter, but once the Big Ten season
opens, they will come fast and fur-
Played With Shortridge
Brafford and Gage are former play-
ers of Shortridge High of the Town-
send's home town. When the Wolver-
ines travel to Purdue Jan. 13, they
will run into a tall center, Jim Se-
ward, who towers over the six foot six
inch mark, and who is also a former
member of the Shortridge team and
one of John's outstanding rivals for
scoring honors in 1934.
Bob Kessler, the Purdue "Jumping
Jack" and All-American forward last
year, used to be a forward on the

both Townsends well. Ed. Elliot and
Jewell Young, both of the Boilermak-
er Varsity, are also well acquainted
with John and "blind" passes.
Indiana Has Many
Indiana will bring up Wendel
Walker, Vern Huffman, Ken Gunning
and a number of others who make
up the Hoosier squad, with whom both
John and Earl have a playing ac-
quaintance. Fred (Reach) Fecht-
man, the Hoosier's six foot nine inch
center, is also from Indianapolis but
was unable to play basketball in high
school because he was growing lit-
erally by leaps and bounds. The
Fechtman, Gee duel at the center-
jump will offer plenty of excitement
when the Wolverines, meet Indiana
Jan. 6 at Yost Field House.
Northwestern is not on the Varsity
schedule this season but when the
Wildcats do meet the Michigan five
in the next few years the Townsends,
or rather Townsend for Earl will
graduate at the end of the 1936 sea-
son, will run up against "Duke"
Vance, who captains the Wildcats de-
spite his junior standing, Hi Bender,
and Tug Blume. Vance was the out-
standing guard in Indiana in 1933
while playing with Logansport and
along with Huffman of Indiana is rat-
ed as the best center guard in the
last six or seven years.
