Off Backboard May
Edge ToMichigan



By GEORGE J. AN &, -

Because the Michigan basketball
teams always have trouble against.
fast teams, the opening game against
Michigan State Normal College next
Monday night should prove a real
test for the Varsity five.
Leading the Huron speedsters is7
little Jim Walsh, five feet five inch
former Ann Arbor high school star,
who will be playing his first game for
the Ypsilanti team. Walsh has. all
the speed in the world and should
give the Wolverine guards plenty to
think about on fast breaks.
Also outstanding on the Ypsi
quintet is Lou Wenger, another Ann
Arbor boy, who played- such a fine
game against Michigan last uyear as
a sophomore. Wenger, at six feet, is
as tall as any man on the probable
starting fiveand is the Huron's bet
off the defensive back-board.
Ypsi Worry Is Size
Coach Elton Rynerson's major
worry is size. If he can stop the
Michigan back-board attack and pre-.
vent the Wolverines from monopoliz-
ing the ball as they did last year, the
Hurons will cause the Varsity far
more trouble than they did in their
last encounter.
Capt. Johnny Gee and Jake Town-
send are Coach (Cappy) Cappon's
threat on the back-board play. Even
against men their own size they can
get the best of the break as far as
taking the ball off the back-board is
concerned and on rebound shots.
Just what Rynerson will do to stop
this isn't known.
The probability is that he will ex-
pect his team to keep the ball when
they get it and to work it in to the
basket with their speed, depending
on accuracy to offset the fact that
they can hardly hope to keep the
ball away from the Wolverines.
Only One Senior
In addition to Walsh and Wenger,
the Huron first five is made up of
Neville "Tex" Walker, five feet sev-
en inch forward, Bud Casucci, six
feet, center, and Captain George
Wendt, five feet ten inch guard.
Wendt is the only senior on this
quintet, while Walsh, Casucci and
Walker, a former all-state player
from Fordson, are sophomores.
It is probable that four Ann Ar-
bor boys will see action. Besides
Wenger and Walsh there is also Ed'
Engle, six feet two inch center, and
Bob Mayfield, another center. May-
field has been out of high school for
a number of years, having played on
the Ann Arbor team with Doug Nolt,
former University of Detroit star.

Kimy Picks Up ...
"I've got it just about licked," op-
timistically writes Kimy Williams,j
captain-elect and catcher of the Wol-
verine nine, "and if I can put on some
of that lost weight between now and
February, Ann Arbor here I come."
Kimy has been valiantly battling
an intestinal ailment which has kept
him in bed for ten months. His
weight dropped from 180 pounds
down to 115. Now, after taking
serum treatments, he has rallied and
begun to pick up weight.
It is doubtful if Kim will under-
take the strain of donning the heavy
catching paraphernalia, but his pres-
ence will certainly give the Wolver-
ines moral impetus. The tousle-
headed lad's courageous fight is an
example anyone would do well to fol-

Clayton Paulson, Michigan second
baseman in 1934, has decided to tie
the marital knot. Clayt will take
unto himself a spouse from Winnetka,

Russ Oliver Shines .. .
Now chat the moleskins have been
tucked safely away in the mothballs,
at least one football coach will escape
the perennial wrath of dissatisfied
fans and alumni. He is Russ Oliver,
one of four Michigan men to earn
nine letters during their collegiate
athletic career.
Oliver coaches at the Culver Mil-
itary Academy, Culver, nd. His
cadets waded through eight oppo-
nents this season without a miscue,
amassing 222 points as against six
by their opponents. Only Lake View
high school of Chicago-in a Thanks-
giving Day~ tussle--could cross the
Culver goal line.
Oliver, who graduated from Mich-
igan in '34, played football, basket-
ball and baseball while here. He is
also an alumnus of Culver, having
prepped there before coming here.

Among State's Best
