Playing effortless basketball for 40
minutes against a pitifully out-

Michigan cage team broke the Yost
Field House scoring record last night,
running up 61 points to the Ypsi-
lanti quintet's 12.
Six thousand persons witnessed the
game, the first of the season for both
teams, and saw that Coach Cappy

plenty of material and a world of
passing ability, but discovered little

Jake Townsend was the heart of
the Michigan offense, which was ob-
viously under wraps, setting up but

blind passes, work off both back-
boards, ball-hawking, and general
"quarterbacking" proved that "Hou-

Cappon Uses 13 Men
Cappon used 13 men and all of
them scored at least one field goal
with Capt. Johnny Gee topping the
scorers with 10 points despite the
fact that he had an off night. Herm
Fishman, flashy Detroit junior and
number one reserve last year, started
his first game with nine points while
Townsend was third with eight.
The starting players all turned in
satisfactory performances. G e e
couldn't hit the basket consistently
but never lost a tip-off and got his
share of the follow-in shots. Matt
Patanelli, starting his first game
since the 1934-35 season, was effec-
tive under the basket and looked good
on the few screen plays that the
Wolverines attempted.
Reserves Show Up Well
Ed Thomas, the Ishpeming soph-
omore who didn't even come out for
freshman basketball, played better
basketball every minute as he picked
up confidence. He can .handle his
speed and is a dangerous shot.
The reserves, who may be starters
tomorrow, held up their end of the
game. Danny Smick looked like
another Townsend at times as he
passed at the same dizzy angles.

King EdwardI
Still Resolved
To WedWally
Public Sympathy Aroused1
Through Mrs,. Simpson's
Renunciation Of Claim
Monarch Strives
To Make Decision
Minister Asserts King Is
Resolved To Have
Morganatic Marriage
LONDON, Dec. 8.-(Tuesday)--(P)
-King Edward's determination to1
wed Wallis Warfield Simpson re-t
mained unshaken early today, in-C
timates said, despite the American-f
born divorcee's public offer to givef
up the monarch to save his throne.
Although the public renunciationt
of her claim to Edward's love rousedt
a wave of popular sympathy, friends1
of both said the crisis of Britain's
far-flung empire was no nearer than
ever to solution.
The mon rlh, in the privacy of
the Fort Belvedere Lodge, seized uponr
the additional time' won from Primec
Minister Stanley Baldwin to strive
for some course of action that would
satisfy both his love and his duty to
the throne of his fathers.c
King Determinedt
Even before Mrs. Simpson issued
her statement in Cannes offering tot
sacrifice her love to Edward's empire,
all England knew from Baldwin's
speech that the King was resolved to
marry her, without, however,,.making
her England's queen.
"Mrs. Simpson's statement,"a high
quarter said, "has not solved the
crisis. Only action by the king him-,f
self now can terminate the situation."
Mrs. Simpson told the world of hert
readiness to sacrifice her love purely(
on her own volition, a high source inc
the realm said, andmembers ofthe
King's staff at Belvedere professed
ignorance of it until it was read tof
them by newspapermen.
It was believed that the Duke oft
York, who would be next in line forc
Edward's throne should the present
monarch step down from it, dined at
Belvedere last night.I
Black Shirtst
A car, from outward appearances
that of the Duke, left the snow-cov-
ered refuge of his majesty at 1 a.m.
Renewed activity at No. 10 Down-1
ing Street eai'lier indicated the King's[
representatives ag.in sought to
thresh the whole matter out with
Baldwin. Four men, in formal at-
tire, went into the historic building,
while police dispersed a group of
black-shirted singers of "God Save!
The King."
Adding to Edward's problems was'
the apparent strategy of Baldwin's
supporters to clamp down a "gag
rule" to prevent the king's champions
from presenting his side of the case'
to parliament before it is too late.
Baldwin's plan, some parliamen-
tarians said, was not to inform the
commons of what the King's decision
was until Edward had already car-
ried it out.1

The Daily's campaign for a foot-

Conference succeeded in having the
matter put before faculty representa-
ives of the Big Ten, most of whom, it
was learned yesterday, favored it but
delayed action until they could sound
out their local boards in control of
This information came from Prof.

sented Michigan at the annual win-
ter meeting of the Big Ten in place
of Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, chairman
of the board here. Professor Aigler
spent the week-end ill in the Uni-
versity Hospital.
Directors Favor Plan
Professor Gram said that the mat-
ter of a training table was brought up
for discussion at the Saturday ses-
sion of the Conference meeting, but
did not reach a vote. He declared
that so far as he could learn, prac-
tically all of the athletic directors
and coaches appeared to be in sup-
port of the plan, and that the fac-
ulty representatives, on whom action
is incumbent, waited in order to get
the opinions of their local boards of
control of athletics.
From his remarks, it appeared that
the chances of a training table pro-
posal receiving better consideration
at the May meeting of the Big Ten
are good.
In an interview with Professor Aig-
ler, chairman of Michigan's Board in
Control of Athletics, last Thursday
it was learned that in former years
there has not even been enough sup-
port for the training table to war-
rant such deferring of action as took
place Saturday. A committee of fac-
ulty representatives will soon be ap-
pointed to look into the various
phases of the proposition, Gram said,
with final action coming during the
May meeting.
Backers Are Hopeful

much satisfaction from this turn of
events which indicates that the plan
is gaining il favor after being flatly
