Michigan-Illinois Cage Tilt Dedicated To

Founder Of Sport

Illini Mentor
Here For Last
Earl Townsend, Rudness,
And Gee Nurse Injuries
But Will Start
The Michigan-Illinois basketball
game next Monday night at Yost
Field House has been designated as
"Naismith Night" by Coach Franklin
C. Cappon to honor Dr. George Nai-
smith of Kansas University, founder
of the hardwood sport.
Colleges and high schools all over
the country have honored Dr. Nai-
smith in this way as a part of a na-
tion-wide campaign to send the ven-
erable founder of basketball to
Olympic games in Berlin this sum-
mer. The first Olympic basketball
championships will be played this
year marking the development of the
cage game into an international sport
since its founding some forty years
Coach Cappon said that pails will
be placed at each entrance of the
Field House to receive contributions
to the Naismith fund. Any size con-
tribution will be appreciated.
Ruby To Retire
Monday's game will also mark the
final appearance of Craig Ruby, Il-
linois mentor, and Ruby-coached
teams in the Field House for the
Illini coach is to retire at the close
of the present season. The Michi-
gan-Illinois tilt at Urbana last Mon-
day night marked the final appear-
ance of Ruby at Illinois.
Three Varsity cagers are nursing
injuries following last week-end's
brace of wins. John Gee, who has
shown so much improvement in the
last few weeks, is still hampered by
a painful ankle sprain; Earl Town-
send, forward, has a heel bruise; and
George Rudness, guard, a sprained
ankle. Coach Cappon was reasonably
sure that all three of these men
would be in shape for the return
game with the Illinois team.
Will Break Tie
Both of the remaining games on
the Wolverines' Big Ten schedule are
of the utmost importance with re-
gard to the final Conference stand-
ings. The Illinois game will break
the third place tie between the Var-'
sity and the Indians. The Purdue
game, however, will have even great-
er importance on the ultimate title
Working on the supposition that
the Boilermakers get by Iowa with-
out harm Saturday night and In-
diana's Red Raiders defeat Northwes-
tern's "bag of surprises," the Michi-
gan-Purdue tilt will be the deciding
and most important game of the sea-
son. At Bloomington Hoosier support-
ers are giving up daily prayers for the
Wolverines. The scene 'at Lafayette
is slightly different.
Rates Third
At the present time Michigan rates
third in the Conference in team scor-
ing with 346 points behind Purdue's
411 and Indiana's 377. However, the
Varsity does not rate so high de-
fensively at least as far as its op-
ponents' scoring record would show,
ranking seventh. Ohio State's 209 is
first by 48 points.

Athletic Board Restates
Policy On Admissions


Squad To Test

Due to a misunderstanding ap-
parently brought about by an ad- Til Chces
mission charge at the State A.A.U.
track meet, held independently of the Chief Strength
University, the Board in Control of 1-oosiers' Chief Strength
Physical Education has re-stated its Lies In Distance Events
admission policies.
All students are admitted free to And 440-Yard Run
every athletic event held in Ann Ar-

bor upon presentation of their identi-
fication cards, except swimming and
hockey. Due to the limited seatingI
capacities at the pool and at the ice
rink, it is necessary to make a charge
for those events.

Kasley, along with his duties in the
200-yard event and the very im-
portant breast-stroke leg of the 300-
yard medley relay, will swim in the
440-yard free-style with Frank Bar-
nard. Kasley beat Bernard in the
220 against Michigan State in his
only free-style start this year.
Two more changes contemplated by
Coach Mann are even more surpris-
ing. The Wolverine mentor has nom-
inated diver Ben Grady for action in
the 50-yard free-style sprint and
will probably use Ed Drew, senior
sprinter, in the 150-yard back-stroke.
Manley Osgood, letter-winner as a
dashman in 1934, will perform in the
220 free-style with Barnard. Osgood,
who regained his eligibility with the
new semester, swam in the 400-yard
sprint relay against Ohio State last

Rated a heavy favorite to retain
its Big Ten track crown in early
winter predictions, but given only a
slight chance to do so after the in-
eligibility announcements were made,
Michigan's Varsity track team Satur-

to send its stock soaring once again
when it meets Indiana's powerhouse.

at all, lies in cutting them out of
points in the long runs.
In the mile this burden will rest
upon the shoulders of Brelsford, Fink
and O'Connell. Staehle and Stone
will be depended upon to score for
the Wolverines in the gruelling two
m'iles race. Indiana, on the other
hand, has a quartet of men to enter
in each of these events and the out-
come of the meet may depend on
how Coach Hayes arranges his en-
Last week Smith won the mile in
4:22.7 against the Buckeyes while
Brelsford was clocked in 4:22.2. Both
times are better than Brelsford's
time in last year's Conference indoor
meet in which he placed first. Deck-

Coach Ken Doherty is going to
send his freshman mile relay
team out against the present rec-
ord of 3:29.3, held by Brelsford,
Stiles, Birleson and Hall.
The quartet selected by Doherty
for the race is composed of Ross
Faulkner, Harold Davidson, Ralph
Rosenberg and Roy Heath. The
quartet was selected on time trials
among twelve freshmen, with Heath
running the fastest quarter in 52.3.
The individual trial times give a total,
of 3:30.5 for the mile, and taking off
a second and a half for running starts
it appears that the team has a good
chance to break the old mark.
