Three Sports

Favored Cage!
Team Set For
Gopher Battle
Cappon Names Same Five
To Start Which Opened
Against Indiana
Michigan's basketball team will
take the floor favored to chalk up
its first Big Ten win, after losing
to Indiana in the Conference opener
Monday, against the speedy Minne-
sota five at 7:30 p.m. tonight at
Yost Field House.
Coach Cappon has named the same
quintet that started against Toledo
and Indiana to open against the
Gophers. It will include Jake and
Earl Townsend at the forward posts,
Johnny Gee, center, and George Rud-
ness and Earl Meyers at the guard
positions. Meyers will start in Capt.
Chelso Tamagno's place. Tamagno
who suffered an injured leg muscle
against Butler last week, will not
see action.
Tries To Find Speed
Coach Dave MacMillin of Minne-
sota has been experimenting all week,
since losing to Illinois in the Goph-
er's Conference opener by a 42 to
19 score, trying to find enough speed
to make up for what the Norsemen
lack in height.
He has named George Roscoe and
Jimmy Baker, forwards, Jones, cen-
ter, and Halverson and Seebach,
guards, as his starters. Roscoe, hard
hitting Minnesota fullback, and Ba-
ker have played good ball for the
Gophers all year and if they are
hitting can cause the Varsity plenty
of trouble. Jones has been dividing
.the- center assignment with King.
The pivot position is the weakest spot
on the Minnesota team. Whether
Gee, Jake Townsend, or Matt Pat-
anelli jump Michigan can be sure of
dominating the tip-off.
It will be in height that the Wol-
verines will hold the greatest ad-
vantage, topping the Minneapolis five
by several inches a man. Push-in
shots should account for much of the
Varsity's scoring.
Fans will have a good opportunity
to see whether Cappon has been
successful in working out a system
of bringing the ball down the floor
despite close checking. Minnesota
will probably guard the Wolverine
guards in the same manner that
Stout and Gunning of Indiana so ef-
fectively broke up the powerful Var-
sity offense last Monday. Cappy has
been working all week to diagnose the
trouble and still retain Jake Town-
send's effectiveness in the passing
Gophers Are Tough
Minnesota proved that despite sev-
eral losses during the pre-Conference
season it can be dangerous when it
lost a thriller to the powerful Notre
Dame by a 27 to 26 score. Notre
Dame's superior height failed to stop
the Norsemen.
Monday night the Michigan team
will meet Purdue at Lafayette, Ind.
in what should be one, of the fea-
ture games of Conference season.
Purdue has a weak schedule with only
Michigan and Ohio State as real
obstacles in the way of another Big
Ten title. The Boilermakers have al-
ready defeated Warren Whitlinger
and company so that the encounter
with the Wolverines is of major im-
portance to them and the rest of the
Again it will be a battle of height
against speed. Remembering the
weak Purdue defense it seems prob-
able that the Lafayette team will be
unable to pull another "Indiana" and
that height will prove the greatest

Hockey Team
Plays Host To
Chatham Club'
Wolverines To Attempt To
Avenge Overtime Defeat
Of Last Season
The Chatham Maroons, character-
ized by CoachkEddie Lowrey as the
,strongest hockey team in Western
Ontario, descend upon the Coliseum
tonight to meet Michigan's Wolver-
ines in what promises to be the out-
standing hockey tilt of thehseason
thus far.
The memory of last year's en-
counter with the Maroons still re-
mains fresh in the minds of the
Wolverine team as they recalled Art
Sadlier, giant Chatham defenseman
who scored the goal that sent the
game into overtime after Johnny
Sherf had put Michigan out in front
with a brace of tallies.

The powerful Chatham sextet
that meets Michigan in the Col-
iseum tonight will find Capt. Larry
David one of its greatest obstacles
in scoring for the stalwart Wolver-
ine defenseman is one of the best
in collegiate circles. Michigan will
be after its third win of the season.

Major League
Schedule For
1936 Chantoed1
Eliminate 4-Game Series;
Intersectional Play To
Start Earlier
NEW YORK, Jan. 10. - (A") -
Radical changes in the major league
baseball schedules for 1936, including
earlier and increased intersectional
play, were announced today after a
conference of League executives.
The big league season will open on
Tuesday, April 14, and close its 154-
game run on Sunday, Sept. 27.
The fourth annual game between
all-star teams of the American and
National Leagues will be played on
Tuesday, July 7, at Braves Field, Bos-
Besides calling for the start of in-
tersectional play on April 28, within
two weeks after the season's opening,
the schedules provide for four inter-
sectional series instead of the cus-
tomary three. This involves the vir-
tual elimination of the old four-game
series. The games per series will be
on a 3-3-3-2 basis this year instead of
4-4-3 as in former years.
Road trips thus will be shorter and
the rivalry speeded up to such an
extent that each club will play every
other league opponent, at home and
on the road, within the first monthM
of the season.f
Opening games on April 1, 14 are
slated as follows:
American League -St. Louis at
Chicago, Detroit at Cleveland,sNew
York at Washington, Philadelphia at
National League - Brooklyn at
New York, Boston at Philadelphia,
Pittsburgh at Cincinnati, Chicago at
St. Louis.
The principal change from ordi-
nary rotation here is that the Brook-
lyn Dodgers gave up their privilege of
opening at home in preference to
starting the season at the Polo
Three days later, onl April 17, the
scenes will shift to bring about a
second series of openers -another
innovation -as follows:
American League - Cleveland at
St. Louis, Chicago at Detroit, Wash-
ington at Philadelphia, Boston at
New York.
National League - New York At
Boston, Philadelphia at Brooklyn,
Cincinnati at Chicago and (on April
18), St. Louis at Pittsburgh.

in the overtime period in a game
which had the entire crowd on its
feet most of the time.
Presenting practically the same
line-up as last year, Chatham, per-
ennial O.H.A. contenders, will keep
the Michigan defense and goalie Low
very much occupied and the Wol-
verines will be hard put to best the
Lowrey will start Vic Heyliger at
center, flanked by Dick Berryman
and Jack Merrill. Captain Larry Da-
vid and Bert Smith will start on
the red line and Reed Low will be
in his accustomed position in goal.
The Chatham game will be the
last scheduled tilt for the pucksters
before opening of the Conference sea-
son at Minneapolis with the ram-
pant Gophers next Tuesday night,
and their last home appearance for
ten days.
Only One Big Score
Chatham-Michigan hockey games
of the past have always been closely
contested with the exception of 1933
when the Wolverines, aided by Keith
Crossman, Emmy Reid, and Jack
Tompkins outscored the Canadians,
Last year's game bore out this
statement when Sadlier's two late
goals downed Michigan 3-2.
Peardon, Maroon goalie, is one of
the best amateur net minders in the
business and the Concord flash will
have to be at his best to continue
his scoring fest.
Lowrey hopes for a couple of early
goals and thinks that if Berryman
and Heyliger can work as well to-
gether tonight as they did against
Ilderton, Michigan will be able to
forge ahead early in the opening
stanza. With Fabello, Griggs and
Simpson all available for frequent
relief duty, Lowrey plans to keep his
starting team fairly fresh for last
period stands against four or five man
Lowrey also announced yesterday
that the proposed game with .the
University of Toronto would not be
played due to difficulty in arranging
a date, but added that he would
probably schedule a game with Brant-
ford to conclude the season.
Tonight's game, the fourth for the
Wolverines, will commence at 8:30
p.m., directly after the basketball
encounter with Minnesota.
Probable Line-Ups

Michigan Vs. Notre Dame ...
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following column was written by
Fred DeLano.
reviewing the athletic record of the University of Michigan in inter-
collegiate competition that has been amassed since his coming here at the s
turn of the century. The famous Michigan gridiron juggernaut that reigned e
the football world from 1901 through 1905 would be enough in itself to s
justify the lauding of Wolverine athletics by Michigan men. However, t
that was only the beginning and over the long period since Michigan actually a
started competing with other schools in various athletic contests her record c
has become incomparable in all fields of sport.
Football attracting the greatest attention every year as far as college
athletics are concerned, Michigan can be particularly proud of the fact i
that it stands head and shoulders above all other teams in the Western 5
Conference, the toughest league in football. Only a very few teams boast
of an edge over the Wolverines in the won and lost columns and Pennsylvania l
is the only one of those that has played Michigan more than two or three b
times. Incidentally, that edge was piled up while Michigan was out of the 1
Conference and Penn officials, so we're told, cared neither who was in
their lineup nor whether they were scholastically eligible as long as they
were plenty tough on the gridiron.
But despite this grand record of Michigan's, this record that h
would seem to automatically rate the Wolverines "tops" in football I
primarily, what about Notre Dame?
It seems illogical that another great educational institution should
exist barely 150 miles from Ann Arbor, in the heart of the Mid-West, and
yet due to alleged differences between the athletic administrations of the
two schools they do not meet on the athletic field. b
References to the alleged differences in the last few years cite them
as being largely concerned with Notre Dame's eligibility and training
rules - that they do not adhere exactly to those which govern Western
Conference teams. It is probably quite true that the rules are not the
same and it is true that the Fighting Irish put out teams to be feared
by their opponents, but other Big Ten teams have successfully met the men
,from South Bend in recent years and appear none the worse for their
encounters. Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Northwestern played the Irish
last fall; Indiana, Purdue and Minnesota have been met recently. Illinois
has scheduled a home and home series with them to open in 1937. Notre
Dame holds an edge over those teams, but then -so does Michigan.
As for differences in the rules Mr. Yost can easily recall
the series with Pennsylvania when the twentieth century was in its
'teens and decide that if the highly regarded athletes directly under
the tutelage of Harry Kipke were to meet Elmer Layden's charges
it wouldn't be so much worse than his own lads facing Penn's power-
house that according to observers echoed a definite "ringing" sound
when it met the Wolverines.
Michigan actually has met Notre Dame in the past and out of the 62
times they have met in six different sports your own Michigan has won
44 times while dropping 18 decisions. On the gridiron Michigan holds a
seven to one edge (the last game was in 1909). In baseball Michigan has
taken 24 out of 36 starts, the last battle coming in 1924. Michigan also is
tops in track and tennis; in basketball the count is even and Notre Dame's
only edge is in hockey, three and two. Michigan took these two games in
As much as Michigan's grid record stands out, the Irish can also point
to a record that compares with Michigan's. From 1920 through 1924 the
Irish won 46 games, lost three and tied one which really isn't bad at that.
Altogether the immortal Knute Rockne, perhaps the greatest football coach
of all time, registered 105 victories in the 13 years he coached at Notre Dame.
At the same time the Irish dropped only 12 games and tied five for a per-
centage of .897. Over those same 13 years, Michigan won 75 games, lost 20
and tied five, a .789 rate.
A Michigan-Notre Dame rivalry would be one of the greatest in athletics,
what with the two schools practically neighbors and both standing on top
of the heap. Besides, for those always glancing at the pecuniary angle, there
is little doubt but what the two mammoth stadiums of the two schools would
be nearly --if not completely -filled to capacity whenever their football
teams would meet and "money" gates are highly valued these days.
We are not expecting to see the respective athletic directors of
the two universities, Messrs. Yost and Layden, jump up now and
promptly arrange for the Wolverines and Irish to meet on the grid-
iron, hardwood, diamond or track because of this column; but we
would (and don't think that thousands of others wouldn't also)
appreciate seeing the differences ironed out and friendly relation-
ships established between Michigan and Notre Dame. Certainly
Michigan has no fear of meeting Notre Dame. Or has it?

Keen Orders Drills
For Varsity Matmen
Hoping to make a clean sweep of
the Eastern invasion, Coach Cliff
Keen ordered practice drills to be
held at 3:00 p.m. today and Sunday.
Some have even dcided to work out
in the mornings which was the pro-
cedure followed previous to the New
York meet.
The Wolverines plan to leave about
the middle of next week for the
Franklin and Marshall and Penn
State dual meets scheduled for Jan.
17 and 18 respectively. Keen's pro-
teges are out to break Penn State's
record of not having lost a dual
match in two years.

not make an Eastern trip last year,
