Over Ypsi Five
Michigan's Defense To Be
Tested By Opponents'
Speedy Offense
With the outlook for a successful
season the brightest since the advent
of Coach Franklin C. Cappon, Michi-
gan's Varsity basketball team will
open its 1936-37 campaign at 7:30
p.m. tomorrow against the neighbor-
ing Michigan State Normal five at
Yost Field House.
Everything seems to be on the side
of the Wolverines. They are far su-
perior to the Ypsilanti team in size
and experience and their past record
points to top-heavy victory. But still
the game is far from being "in the
Have Speedy Team
Elton Rynerson, Huron coach, will
put a team on the floor that has
plenty of speed, the perennial "boo-
gey man" of Michigan fives, that is
well capable of getting the jump on
the Varsity and keeping it if they are
hitting the basket.
Cappon is still not certain exactly
what his lineup will be. Capt. John-
ny Gee and Jake Townsend will defi-
nitely start at the pivot positions
with Gee jumping center. Herm
Fishman, flashy junior from Detroit,
and Matt Patanelli, football captain,
will be the back line, but it is hard to
say who the fifth man will be. In
yesterday's practice Cappy used both
Bill Barclay, quarterback on the
football team, and Ed Thomas, Ish-
peming sophomore who is out for
basketball for the first time in his
collegiate career, as the third man in
the back line on the left side of the
floor. Both play the same style of
game. They are fast, small, and
good shots. Barclay is better ac-
quainted with Cappon's methods
while Thomas is a better long shot.
Wenger Back
The Huron team will find Neville
"Tex" Walker and Bud Casucci at
forward, Ed Engle of Ann Arbor at
center, and Capt. George Wendt and
Lou Wenger, another Ann Arbor
product at guard. Engle, a graduate
of St. Thomas high, is the tallest
man on the Ypsi squad at six feet
two inches and stands practically no
chance of getting the tip against any
Michigan center.
Wenger is probably the outstand-
ing man on the squad. His defensive
play against "Houdini" Townsend
last year was noteworthy and he will
probably be assigned the job of
guarding the Wolverine star again
this year.
Have Height Advantage
Michigan's greatest advantage,
both offensively and defensively, will
be its superior height. It was this
advantage that was largely respon-
sible for the Varsity's drubbing the
Normal team 37 to 17 last year. The
Michigan Goliaths were able to
monopolize the ball off both back-
boards, never giving Ypsi a chance
to score.
The probable starting lineups:
Michigan Michigan Normal
Townsend ......F......... Walker
Barclay or
Thomas...... F ........Casucci
Gee ............C........... Engle
Fishman ...... G.......... Wendt
Patanelli .......G......... Wenger
Baseball Meeting
To Feature Trades
NEW YORK, Dec. 5.--(P)-The
baseball market shifted from Mon-
treal to 42nd street today as officials

rolled their hopes and problems south
for the major league meetings.
Officially the meetings do not start
until Tuesday, but most of the club
owners and managers were around
singing the praise of players they
want to get rid of.
The possibility that Commissioner
Landis would declare Bob Feller of
the Cleveland Indians a free agent
and that the St. Louis Cardinals
would trade Dizzy Dean still dom-
inated the conversation.
The Intramural riding class will
meet at the Engineering Arch at
7:45 p.m. Monday.

Had there been a training
table Paquette would not have
had to put in those three hours
every night. Neither would Loiko
have gone hungry. And Michi-
gan would most probably not
have lost two good athletes.
DESPITE all this the faculty (or
should we say "faulty") repre-
sentatives of the Western Conference
yesterday patently ignored the pro-
posal that training tables be allowed.
We know that the Big Tenacoaches
are for the plan and it was also sup-
ported by T. L. "Tug" Wilson, ath-
letic director at Northwestern, but
the aforementioned faculty men, are
fearful that the training table might
be taken as a form of subsidizationj
and the Conference bends over back-
wards in steering clear of this nasty
evil of college athletics. Oh, yes. It
most certainly does! In fact, those
same faculty men were so afraid of
the plan that they did not even put
it to a vote.
In our opinion the training
table is a necessity. Prof. Ralph
W. Aigler, Michigan's faculty
representatives, claims that
football is not a business at
Michigan. But, Professor Aigler,
just how would Michigan's ex-
tensive physical education pro-
gram of which intercollegiate
athletics are the cap stone be
vupported were it not for foot-
ball and the gigantic profits de-
rived from this sport? Quite
right. They just wouldn't be sup-
ported unless the legislature add-
ed another $150,000 to the an-
nual appropriation.

Approximately 1000 coaches and

attend the annual meeting of the
state high school basketball clinic.

High School players gave an exhibi-

A luncheon was held at the Union
at noon for the visitors at which
Eddie Powers, who officiated the
basketball games at the Olympics
this year, was guest speaker.
Discuss Rules
In the afternoon the coaches and
officials again assembled on the floor
of the Intramural Sports Building to
discuss and consider rule changes
suggested by a previously appointed
committee. Charles E. Forsythe of
Lansing, state director of athletics,
and R. C. Miller, an official from
Kalamazoo, directed the proceed-
ings. The meeting terminated with
an exhibition by the Varsity bas-
ketball squad demonstrating various
types of calisthenics, ball handling,
and floor work besides going through
their regular scrimmage.
Reject Overtime Rule
An important rejection was that
of the proposed "sudden death" rul-
ing which provided that in the case
of an overtime period, the first team
to make two points would auto-
matically be declared winner with-
out further play. This also provided
that if teams were tied at the end of
the first overtime period, the players
on both teams would be allowed to
shoot on free-throw each, and the
team having the greater number
would be declared winner.
