CHICAGO, March 9. -- (P) -Pur-
due and Indiana, co-holders of the
1936 Western Conference basketball
title, today shared honors with Mich-
igan, Ohio State and Chicago on
the Associated Press' annual all-star
team selected by the ten coaches.
The mythical first team, which with
a couple of weeks of practice probably
would make the United States a high-
ly capable Olympic entrant if the
rules permitted such a thing, lines up
with Bob Kessler of Purdue, and Bill
Haarlow of Chicago, a pair of bril-
liant scorers and first team selections
in 1935, at forwards; John Townsend
of Michigan, at center, and Vernon
Huffman of Indiana, and little Wil-
liam Harrison (Tippy) Dye of Ohio
State, at the guards
Kessler, a senior, winner of the in-
dividual scoring championship and
the spearhead of Purdue's better than
point-a-minute attack, was the only
unanimous selection. Haarlow also a
senior, was a close second in the vot-
ing, receiving nine first team votes
and one for the second five. Huff-
man a junior was rated as the best
guard by nine coaches while one failed
to mention him.
Townsend Only Sophomore
The battles for the other two po-
sitions were close down to the fin-
ish. Townsend, an Indianapolis boy
who made good at Michigan and the
only sophomore to be named played
regularly at forward throughout the
season, but was the choice of five
coaches as first team center, while
another named him for the second
team. Right behind him was Earl
Thomas of Ohio State, who received
two first team votes and five for the
second team: Townsend also was
named at forward by two coaches.
Dye, another junior, outpointed
Paul Malaska, brilliant Purdue soph-
omore, and Harry Combes of Illinois,
for the other guard position by a nar-
row margin. However, one coach and
several officials called Dye the most
polished all-around performer in the
The second team forward places
went to Warren Whitlinger of Ohio
State, and Kenneth Gunning of In-
diana, both of whom made the sec-
ond team a year ago. Thomas of
Ohio State won the reserve center
job with Combes and Malaska at the
Kessler Leads Scoring
The first five, led by Kessler, who
scored 160 points, accounted for a
grand total of 548 points during the
season. Haarlow, who outpointed
Kessler in the 1935 individual race,
was second with 151; Townsend had
108, Huffman 76 and Dye 53.
Honorable mention was earned by
the following:
Forwards: Jewell Young, Purdue,
and Marcellus (Mike) McMichaels,
Northwestern; centers, Bob Riegel,
Illinois; Fred Fechtman, Indiana, and
Ed Stege, Wisconsin; guards, Wilbur
Henry, Illinois; Wendel Walker, In-
diana; Dick Seebach, Minnesota;
Norman Vance, Northwestern; Aus-
tin Lambert, and Glenn Downey, Pur-'
due, and George Rudness, Michigan.

An All-Campus Gymnastic Meet

response to repeated requests for
gymnastic competition, the meet has
been scheduled.
The department announced that
the program will consist of six events
and a first place award will be given
the winner of each event. Competi-
