John "Jake" Townsend, one of
the finest cagers ever to don a
Michigan uniform, will keep the
Spartans of Michigan State busy
tonight with his spectacular shot

send, a junior, is playing his sec-
ond year on the Varsity.
Today marks the deadline for
entries in the Intramural basket-
ball, ice-hockey and bowling
tournaments. All fraternity and
independent team managers are
urgently advised to enter their
teams immediately.

Cappon' s Men
Seek Revenge.
For Grid Loss
State Offense To Provide
Varsity With Real Test;
Lineup Unchanged
For years football has helped out
basketball; this year the cage game
will come to the aid of the gridiron.
Therefore with revenge in their
heart and suspicion of the guileless
Ben Van Alstyne in their mind, Mich-
igan's basketball team meets its first
real competition of their year to-
night when it takes the floor against
the Michigan State Spartans at Yost
Field House.
The opening tip-off will be at 7:30
p.m.. but the doors will open at about
6:45 p.m. in order to accommodate
the large crowd that is expected.
Are Inexperienced
Van Alstyne brings an inexper-
ienced squad led by Capt. Ronnie
Garlock, long a thorn in the side of
Michigan cage teams, which, despite
rumors to the contrary, should give
the Varsity sufficient opposition to
prove just how good a team Coach
Cappy Cappon has put together this
The Spartans have always been
experts in the basketball maneuvers
that the Wolverines are weakest
against. They check closely in the
backcourt, the downfall of last year's
sluggish Michigan quintet. They
have plenty of speed and, although
they do not break fast as a rule, they
are quite capable of turning on the
Gee's Height To Tell
As in the Michigan Normal game,
that the Varsity won 61' to 12, Michi-
gan's major advantage will be its bal-
anced height and speed and passing
ability. It's doubtful whether the
Spartans will be able to stand the
gaff on the backboard play or break
up the Wolverine tip-off formations.
Ben Dargush, the Michigan State
center, is only about six feet two
inches tall and hardly a match for
Capt. Johnny Gee's six feet nine
inches. State's other center; Walt
Nelson of the football team, is, like
Dargush, only a sophomore and as
yet has not acquainted himself well
enough with the Van Alstyne style
to warrant his starting.
The Spartans lineup with two
men in the back line, the two for-
wards on the side in the front and
the center on either side of the free
throw lane. At times the center will
drop back into the back line. Van
Alstyne's screen plays then work off
either of these formations featuring
plenty of cutting and short shots.
In Good Condition
All of the Michigan cagers are in
top condition with the exception of
Danny Smick, who suffered a recur-
rence of an old knee injury Tuesday
and has spent all week in the hos-
Cappon is starting the same five
that took the floor against Ypsilanti
Monday night. Jake Townsend with
his Houdini-like passing and ball-
hawking defensive tactics leads the
Varsity offense and defense. Gee will
be at pivot and jump center, Herm
Fishman and Ed Thomas at the cut-
ting positions in the back line, and
Matt Patanelli as the screening

chasers will take the ice at 8:30 p.m.
tonight against the hockey forces of
McMaster University from Hamilton,
Starting time for the contest has
been moved back one half hour in
order to enable the hockey fans that
will be in the crowd attending the
Michigan State-Michigan basketball
game in the Yost Field House, to be
on hand for the opening face-off.
Won Last Year
Tonight's match marks the renewal
of an annual friendly rivalry that has
in the past been productive of some
very high class competition. Upon
their visit to Ann Arbor last winter,
the McMastcr sextet played really
bang-up hockey and emerged from
the contest on the long end of a
6-5 count over a valiant but leg-
weary Wolverine squad.
This year, however, finds condi-
tions somewhat changed for Coach
Lowrey has at his disposal two for-
ward lines that are showing more
power with each appearance. While
the first line of Capt. Heyliger, Gib
James and Johnny Fabello is rapidly
approaching mid-season form, the
second line of Jack Merrill, Dick
Berryman and George Cooke are
matching their speed with some very
nice headwork that is getting them
into scoring positions more each
Defensemen Work Well
Back on the red line, where Burt
Smith and Bob Simpson have been
working like demons, things are de-
cidedly on the brighter side. This,
burly pair are perfecting a coordina-
tion in their efforts that will have
the attacking forwards guessing
when they leave the neutral zone. In
addition, their improvement has done
much to give Goalie Bill Wood the
confidence he so badly needed. Bill's
work is steadying down nicely, and
he is following the puck all the time
and not worrying about what might
happen. He was robbed of a shutout
against Western by one of those fluke
goals when George Cooke accidental
?y put the disk past him while he
was attempting to clear from a melee
of players in front of the cage.
On the McMaster squad that de-
feated the Wolverines here last year,
the outstanding performers were 'Cy'
Apps, and McAdam. Apps was a
member of the Canadian Olympic
field squad at Los Angeles in 1932,
specializing in the pole vault. His
ability as a hockey player, however,
attracted the interests of professional
scouts, and this fall Conny Smythe
of the Toronto Maple Leafs signed
Apps to a pro contract and the latter
has replaced Joe Primeau at center
on the famous "Kid line."

Southwest Conference
To Hear Subsidy Plan
DALLAS, Dec. 11. -(P)-Unim-
peachable sources said tonight a plan
for open subsidizing of athletes by
Southwest Conference schools would
be recommended at the executive ses-
sion of faculty representatives here
A source which would not be quoted
said one of the seven Southwest Con-
ference schools had instructed its
representative to move for "out in the
open" subsidization.

The Anchor Man
THIS is to introduce Ron Garlock,
7 the man who will do more run-
ning than any other player on the
floor when the Michigan basketball
team meets Michigan State in the
Field House tonight.
Ron will be doing a lot of running
because it is his job to hold the
State five together-and I'm afraid
the four sophomores who with him
make up the Spartan Varsity this
year will need more holding together
than either of the two previous teams
Garlock has been the steadying in-
fluence for.
And it's too bad that Ron has to
spend most of his time during the
game concentrating on thedother four
men on his team, because it spoils
his own game-and Garlock is a
sweet basketball player.
He was probably the best high
school player in the state when he
graduatedafromaHarry Kipke's and
my own alma mater, Lansing Central,
and he has been the outstanding man
cn the Spartan five for two years-
being high-point man last season.
But Garlock has not had the
chance during the past to show near-
ly as much of the potential ability
he possesses as he would have if he
were playing with a team on which
he would be a part of a five-man
machine-an even fifth and not
much more.

Unbeaten Santa Clara
Plays Texas Christian
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 11.--/P)-
The colorful Texas Christian Horned
Frogs and Santa Clara Broncos clash
here tomorrow in a game 40,000 foot-
ball fans will view as a "Battle of
the Bowls."
lSanta Clara, only undefeated, un-
tied major eleven in the country, will
' meet Louisiana State in the New Or-
lean's Sugar Bowl.
Texas Christian, twice defeated and
twice tied, is being considered as
Marquette's foe in the Cotton Bowl.
The battle is expected to surpass
in thrills and hard play the meetings
in 1934 and 1935-both won by the
Texans by field goals.
Sentiment locally favors the Bron-
cos at 10 to 6 odds.
