Varsity Sextet Works Hard In PreparationFor Brantfo

rd A.C.

First Forward
Line Masters
Intricate Plays
Goalie's Post Still Wide
Open As Wood, Chase
Strive To Cinch Job
Continuing a policy of work, and
lots of it, Coach Eddie Lowery has
had his Varsity sextet more than
hustling this week, with scrimmage
each evening from six until eight
o'clock in preparation for this Sat-
urday's game with Brantford A.C.
And the squad is showing that this
work is not in vain, for play is
speeding up, the checks are packing
a lot of wallop and the passes are, for
the most part, going to the men in-
tended. Conditioning is rapidly be-
ing achieved, and by game time on
Saturday evening, the 15 men on
the roster should be capable of tear-
ing from one end of the rink to the
other in fine style.
Front Line Is Improving
In particular, the first line of Capt.
Heyliger, Gib James and Johnny
Fabello is rounding into shape very
nicely. This line should be an out-
standing combination this year, and
if the manner in which their intri-
cate passing plays have been work-
ing this week is any indication of
what they will do as the season pro-
gresses, enemy net minders are in for
some really interesting engagements.
On the second line, Cooke, Berry-
man and Merrill are coming along,
though somewhat slower than the
above mentioned first line. Jack
Merrill seems to be making the fast-
est improvement of the trio, having
his defensive game well in hand, be-
sides showing a lot of headwork on
the attack.
Goalie Position Still Open
Bill Wood seems to be moving
ahead of Bill Chase in the battle for
the net minding job. Chase is still
being puzzled by a hard drive from
close in front. On the other hand,
Wood is covering the net better at
each practice, and if he will just
speed up his clearing of the puck
away from in front once he has made
the stop, he should get along very
Undertaking the job of carrying
most of the defensive portion of the
Wolverine's system of play is a big
task, and an exacting one besides.
On Wednesday evening, Coach Low-
ery had Bob Simpson and Burt Smith
holding the fort without the aid of
their sticks, with the result that
they were following their men nice-
ly, and using their bodies to block
the opposition out of the play. Sat-
urday's game should find this pair a
vastly improved rearguard to what
they were against Chatham.
Michigan's guests for Saturday
evening should have everything that
it takes to make real hockey op-
position, for they are playing in one
of the toughest amateur league in
Canada, the senior Ontario Hockey
Association. With the Wolverine's
coming into their own, the contest
should furnish 60 minutes of high-
class hockey.
Double Headed
Racer Planned
By Ab Jenkins
king of the world's speedways de-
scribed today an automobile "with a
motor in each end" which he believes
will carry him to an all-time land
speed record.
"It will be faster by far than Sir

Malcolm Campbell's Bluebird," said
Ab Jenkins, speed expert who will
pilot the as yet unbuilt machine.
Campbell set a world measured
mile record of 301 miles an hour at
the Bonneville salt flats, 125 miles
west of here. "I shall attempt a new
record on the same eleven-mile
straightaway the Englishman used,"
Jenkins said.
"The new automobile will have a
maximum speed of not less than 350
miles an hour. It will develop 3,600
horsepower, compared to the Blue-
bird's 2,400, and will weigh only four
and a half tons, 1,000 pounds less
than the Bluebird.
"There will be two motors, one in
each end, and the car will have a
200-inch wheelbase and a four-wheel
drive. It is to be built at the Au-
burn auto plant in Auburn, Ind., and
should be ready for the salt flats by
next fall or, at the latest, by spring
of 1938."
Engineers who will help build the
car include Auggie Duesenberg, Rus-
sell Howe and Jim Robinson, all of

I Ugh Schools Call
Recruiting Unfair
LANSING, Dec. 3.-(P)-A report
denouncing overzealousness on the
part of colleges in recruiting athletes
from high schools was presented to
the Michigan High School Athletic
Association at its annual meeting
here Thursday.
The investigating committee, head-
ed by Dean Lloyd C. Emmons, of
Michigan State College, recommend-
ed the creation of a permanent body
to rule on instances of violation of
rules relative to granting scholar-
ships, college aid and other conces-
Any inducements offered athletes
by colleges, the report said, should
come from a specific faculty commit-
tee set up for that purpose.

elimination of the center jump1
though a lot has been writtenand
said on the subject. Last year the
jump was eliminated after a suc-
cessful free throw and most all of
the coaches expressed satisfaction'
but nothing more has been done.
Need Standardization Of Rules
The major need now, however, is
not any new rule but a standardiza-
tion of interpretation of the present
rules throughout the country. At the
present time a Mid-West and Eastern
team cannot play on an even basis
because of the differences in officiat-
ing in the two sections. All attempts,
however, to clear up the differences
have failed because both sides re-
fuse to give in.
The probability is that much at-
tention will be attracted to the of-
ficiating problem by wide interest in
the collegiate basketball games in
Madison Square Gardens which us-
ually find teams from different sec-
tions on the court and that something
will be done to settle the question
next spring.

This was in line with the upward
swing of 1935 when attendance soared
10 per cent over 1934.
Biggest gains this year were made
in the South where incomplete re-
turns indicated a 32 per cent gain.
Accurate and incomplete information
on representative Eastern and Mid-
west games showed an 18 per cent
boost in the past and a 14 per cent
leap in the Midwest.
The Far West attendance was up
6 and the Southwest 5 per cent.
In these five sections, the survey
revealed that 4,829,000 persons at-
tended 217 games played by major
teams. Last year's figures showed
that 4,056,000 saw 210 games.
Ohio State, beaten in three close

Minnesota attracted 244,700 fans

BOSTON, Dec. 3.-(UP)- Coach
(Gloomy Gil) Dobie, '37, believed to
have coached more winning teams in
his thirty-four year career than any
other mentor in college football his-
tory, appeared today to be winning
a game fight for life.
A slight improvement was reported
at City Hospital in the condition of

coach at Boston College and his as-
sistant, Frank R. Murdoek, 25, of
Natrona Heights, Pa., both critically

Eastern Grid
League Likely
To Be Formed
NEW YORK, Dec. 3.-(YP)-For the
first time an Eastern football league
;is in sight.
Talked about for many years, it
has been taken out of the unofficial
conversational stage and made the
subject of concerted action by stu-
dent newspapers of the seven so-
called "Ivy Colleges."
Already bound in formal league
alliance in basketball, baseball and
track and field, indications today
were that this association would be
extended to football, if not next year,
then in the very near future.
While comment from the ruling
university powers was not forthcom-
ing, it was known that athletic rep-
resentatives of Princeton, Harvard,
Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth and
Pennsylvania have been invited to a
hunting party on the southern plan-
tation near Savanah, Ga., of James
Lynah, Cornell's athletic director, on
Dec. 15.
It would be surprising if advan-
tage of this opportunity for discus-
sing a football "Ivy League" were not
taken at that time.
For many years the East has suf-
fered from the lack of a league. It
has been difficult for sports writers
to publicize eastern football because
its thirty-odd "major" elevens have
not been connected in any formal
fashion. Briefly, it is impossible to
single out a champion of the East.

pitching talent.
As Baseball Commissioner Kene-
saw M. Landis sat in a hotel a few
blocks away with the decision in the
Bob Feller case under his hat, thet
minor leagues made a move to make
scouting a more expansive business.
By unanimous vote, the minors de-
cided to allow major or minor leaguej
representatives to recommend players
for signing to other clubs.
Under the new ruling, which un-
doubtedly will be ratified by the ma-
jors next week, any scout can recom-
mend a player to any club providing
he files full information with Com-
missioner Landis and Judge W. G.
Bramham, head of the Minor League
Commissoner Landis, parrying'
every request for his decision on the
Feller case with a promise to each
reporter that he wouldn't be scopped
on the news, seemed lonely as he
lolled around his hotel room. All hea
would talk about was fishing, golf{
and the recent presidential election.

today unanimously voted to allow any
major or minor league representative
to recommend players for signing to
other clubs.
Under the new ruling, which un-
doubtedly will be ratified by the ma-
jors at their meeting in New York
next week, any scout can recommend
a player to any club providing he files
full information with Commissioner
Kenesaw M. Landis and Judge W. G.
Bramham, president of the National
Association of Professional Baseball
The ruling is not expected to have
any effect on the celebrated Bob
Feller case. It merely means scouts
can recommend players to teams of
lower classification other than those
for which they are employed.
