Cagers Seek Fourth Big Ten Win Against Ohio State T
Aims At Lead
In Title Race
Michigan To Match Height
Against Fast -Breaking
Offense Of Invaders
Dye Is Chief Threat
With the leadership of the Big Ten
almost within their grasp, Michigan's
Varsity cagers will take the floor to-
night at Yost Field House against
the Ohio State basketball team. The
Wolverines will be trying for their
fourth straight Conference win..
If the Michigan five comes out on
the heavy end against the Buckeyes
and repeats last Monday's victory
over Chicago this
Monday, it will go
into a tie for first
place or possibly an
undisputed lead if
the erratic Illinois
five is upset by the
Maroons at Cham-
As usual the
Varsity will have aX'
distinct height ad-
vantage ove the
Columbusvt e a m
and as usual the DYE
Wolverines will beDY
facing the threat of Ohio State
a fast break. The tallest man on
the Buckeye first team is Earl Tho-
mas, all-Conference second team
center last year, who is only six feet
three inches tall.
Much Trouble Expected
But with little Dick Baker, Ohio
State's sensational sophomore, and a
first rate brace of guards, Capt. Tippy
Dye and Jack Raidebaugh, the Min-
igan team is guaranteed plenty of
trouble, height or no height.
Dye, long a thorn in the Wolver-
ines' side on the gridiron, the dia-
mond, and the basketball court, was
all-Big Ten guard last year and has
been playing the type of ball this
season that indicates he should re-
peat when the selections come out
again in March, Defensively Dye is
one of the top men in the league and
those who remember his pair of field
goals that won for the Bucks in an
overtime three years ago are well ac-
quainted with his offensive ability.
Same Five To Start
Coach Cappy Cappon starts the
same five that he used to open all of
Michigan's Conference games so far.
~ ~This finds Capt.
Johnny Gee and
Jake Townsend at
the pivot posts, and

Fishman, and Matt
Patanelli in the

Ohio State boost their scores
considerably this week-end. Town-
send, at the present time, is the only
player who has competed in four
games that i in the first 10 scorers.
Despite the fact that the other nine
have played five games, Townsend is
seventh with 41 points.
Ohio In Fourth Place
Gee has collected 29 and stands on
the threshold of the first 10 only
four points below the tenth man.
Ohio State is in a tie for fourth
place, just behind the third place
Wolverines, with two wins and a
single defeat suffered at the hands of
Indiana's Fightin' Hoosiers last Mon-

'The PRESS ANGLE
By GEORGE J. ANDROS =-C
Come, Come Davd. . .
DAVE ARMBRUSTER, Iowa's swimming coach, comes through with the
neatest bit of uhderstatement of the new year . . . He says: "Well,
with any luck we might be up in there again" . . . His present squad includes
nine letterwinners from last year's Big Ten championship team and a gang
of sophomores who make one suspect a piscatorial theory of evolution . .
Maybe Dave was thinking of the 1937 Michigan team . . . But that is
another story that will be told before the springtime hits Ann Arbor . .
Maybe Yale will lose a dual swimming meet pretty soon.. . Its 152nd consec-
utive win at the expense of Brown last week was by the narrow margin of
six points... I look to Harvard to turn the trick.
I saw Michigan State's basketball team take a 36-30 decision from Syra-
cuse University the other night . . . The Spartans had an "out" night in
their in and out season and just happened to be ahead at the final gun ... .
Both teams played a bastard form of race-horse basketball . . . The Orange
team suffered from the close watch the midwestern officials keep on the=
defensive player . . . State should not give the Wolverines too much trouble
at East Lansing between semesters unless Coach Ben Van Alstyne findsI
an offensive somewhere ... Lanky Len Osterink is a deadeye and Capt. Ronny
Garlock still is the greatest ball-hawk in midwestern basketball, but the
Spartans look anything but polished.
Vick Suggests SIlgging...
ERNIE VICK, former Michigan All-American center, suggests slugging in,
the pileup by a teammate as a means of getting John Jordan mad
enough to play the caliber of football he is capable of . . . Ernie used a fist
to advantage on one of the Dunne brothers, who, like Jordan, was afflicted
with a too-pleasant disposition . . . Dunne would ride an opposing lineman
right out of the park after Vick had pointed out that unfortunate one as the
deliverer of a blow which Ernie himself had landed on Dunne . . . Who is the
best psychologist: the coach who says all his men will be eligible the next
semester, or the one who worries that no star will escape the faculty's wrath?
.. Probably a happy medium is the best course to pursue.
Ben York, swimming instructor at the Detroit Social Turnverein, has
gone one up on Bob Kiputh of Yale . . . Kiputh, it will be remembered,
descended into the pool and watched his proteges perform with his head
encased in a diving helmet . . . York also submerges with a diving helmet, but
at the same time has arranged a microphone and amplifier by which he can
transmit messages to the swimmer he is watching through a suspended loud
speaker . . . Lansing St. Mary's High School, 1936 State Class C basketball
champion, has another great team this year . . . Among the victims of the
,-irrent edition of the small school's five are Lansing Central, 1935 Class A
champion, and Detroit St .Theresa, leading parochial five of that city ...
But it is no wonder . . . Coach Ray Lehman has his Capitol City cagers at
work on the floor from September to June . . . Basketball is the school's only
interscholastic sport ... Herb Brogan, member of Coach Ray Fisher's fresh-
man five, was the leading light on last season's championship St. Mary's

Down at Champaign tonight the

Conference victory. The Illini are,
of course, the odds on favorites.
Given Little Chance
The Maroons,although they have
little chance of climbing out of their
cellar position, believe they can up-
set some title contender and would
like very much that it be the Illinois
quintet. Coach Nels Norgren believes
his Chicago squad has the power to
do it, too, as witness the trouble
both Notre Dame and Michigan had
in defeating them.
Michigan, meanwhile, meets the
fourth place Ohio State five, who
have scored 87 points in threegames
and have had that same number
scored against them. .They were vic-

Wildcats Meet State
At the same time Chicago will
be seeking something in the form of
revenge when they come here Mon-
day night. The overtime defeat
handed them last week end by the
Wolverines was not easy to take by
any means. However, Michigan is
after the Conference title and isn't
likely to be stopped by mean looks.
In the only other game of the
week end involving a Conference
team the Northwestern squad is host
to Michigan State tonight. Past per-
formance gives the Wildcats a slight
edge, in spite of their poor showing
in the Conference race.
Such pro teams, he said in an
address before the Lehigh University
Club of Philadelphia, "might pay the
University a percentage of receipts
as a royalty for the use of the col-
lege name, and thus recompense the
college athletic department for loss
of patronage at regular intercolle-
giate contests, which could then be
maintained on an amateur basis for
students and could again become
sport for the players.'
"The dishonesties with regard to
subsidization in some places seem
likely to nullify any values that might.
be derived in idealisms and loyal-
ties," he said.

Floods sweeping through southern

this afternoon has been cancelled,
Coach Cliff Keen announced yes-
Keen received a telegram and a
phone call yesterday morning from
the Bobcat coach, Thor Olson, ex-
pressing regrets that the team could
not make the trip. The roads, the
Ohio coach explained, were utterly
impassable and train connections had
been discontinued because of the ris-
ing water. Traffic throughout that
sector of the state is at a stand-
still, and the Ohio aggregation had
no alternative but to cancel their

Michigan was an "odds-on" favor-
ite to capture the proposed tilt with
the Bobcats, who had previously
dropped a decision to Ohio State,
and the cancellation will leave them
without competition until February
15. At that time they take on North-
western's strong outfit at Evanston.
For those fans who had planned
to be on hand, Keen ,has scheduled
an exhibition meet between members
of the squad. All Varsity men will
participate and those on hand may
expect plenty of action in all divi-
sions. The exhibition will begin at
3 p.m. in the Yost Field House; ad-
mission is free.

Half the Dean team was in the fold
today and Branch Rickey talked of
a 1937 National League pennant for
his St. Louis Cardinals.
The vice-president required three
minutes of Paul (Daffy) Dean's time
to get his name on a contract. He
admitted however there was no time
limit on the signing of brother Jer-
ome (Dizzy). Dizzy has not yet
signed and Rickey seems stumped on
