Eleven Named To Meet
L. S.U. InSugar Bowl
EAST LANSING, Nov. 30.-R')-
Michigan State College's strong foot-
ball team received an invitation today
to play in the sixth annual Orange
Bowl Game at Miami, Fla., against
an as yet unnamed opponent on New
Jack Baldwin, Orange Bowl com-
mittee schedule chairman, announced
in Miami that the invitation has been
accepted by Coach Charley Bachman.
He said Bachman had been reached
in Spokane, Wash., by telephone and
had stated the Spartans were ready
to play any opponents the committee
might select. Bachman and his team
)re en route from the Pacific Coast
where they defeated San Francisco
Bachman was said to have broken
the news of the Orange Bowl invita-
tion to the 34 Spartans on the trip,
and they voted unanimously to ac-
By IRVIN LISAGOR
O.K.'d By President
Robert S. Shaw, president of Mich-
igan State College, said the invita-
tion had yet to be submitted formally
to the college athletic council.
"I do not believe there will be any
objection to the team's playing in
Florida," he said.
It was rumored here that State's
opponent in the New Year's Day
game would be either North Carolina,
Texas Christian ,or Auburn.
State has lost but one game this
season, a 3-0 upset by Manhattan
in New York. , The Spartans won
the opener against Wayne University
here, 19-0, then tripped the Univer-
sity of Michigan, 19-14 at Ann Arbor.
Suffering from what Bachman termed
i "letdown" after the traditional
Michigan game, State lost the follow-
ing week to Manhattan.
The globe-trotting Spartans went
to Missouri for their next game and
nosed out Missouri 2-0. They de-
feated Marquette here, 21-7 and
smeared Kansas 16-0. Temple was
beaten in Philadelphia, 12-6 and Car-
negie Tech here, 13-6.
The team has traveled more than
10,000 miles this season, playing the
most ambitious schedule a Spartan
squad has faced since football became
a major sport here.
Each of the last two Orange Bowl
games have been decided by a single
point. Duquesne defeated Mississippi
State, 13-12, last New Year's Dy, and
Uatholic University of Washington
won over Mississippi, 20-19, in 1936.
Previously the University of Miami
had participated in three Orange
Bowl games. Miami lost to Bucknell
26-0 in 1935 and to Duquesne, 33-7,
after conquering Manhattan 7-0 in
the 1933 inaugural.
A new $300,000 Orange Bowl Sta-
dium with a seating capacity of 23,-
D00 was completed this year.

MIAMI, Fla., Nov. 30.-(P)-Mich-
igan State's once-beaten Spartans
were named today to meet a still un-
designated Southern team in Miami's
annual New Year's Day Orange Bowl
"It doesn't make any difference
whom we 'play," said Charley Bach-
man, former University of Florida
coach who now directs State.
"We want to o down there," he
added in a telephone conversation
from Seattle, Wash., where he paused

'THE GOVERNOR has been taker
off Big Ten basketball.
With abrogation of the rule requir-
ing a center jump after each basket
the Conference court game will cres-
cendo into a near foot-race or stai-
inma test. Heretofore, after a basket
the players spent a few recuperative
seconds preparing forthe tipoff, an
Ia lenient referee might purposely take
his time before the tossup. But now
the team scored upon takes the
ball out of bounds under the basket
1 and immediately launches its offense
This means that the scoring quintet
. can't even pause long enough to sor
1 up the plaudits, but must shuffle
their loins into a defensive position-
This procedure was proven
practicable on free throws last
year, when--as you know-the
offending team put the ball in
play from out of bounds, with-
out the officials Interfering. Sim-
ilarly on all baskets this season,
the referee will not touch the
ball when a shot is successful. An
opponent will snatch the ball,
step off the court beneath the
basket and snap it back into play.
Though the rule was promulgated
primarily to take undue emphasis of
height in the court game, its chief
result is likely to be a general toll on
the players. Grade-A condition will
have to be maintained at all times
and brooding benchmen will see more
'service because of the unceasing
tempo. Fresh talent is always more
effective in contests which tax the
stamina in that manner.
Train 'Em This Way.. .
FOR A NOVEL METHOD of condi-
tioning players and sharpening
;heir basket eyes in one fell swoop,
consider the Pineville, W. Va. coach,
who didn't have a nail on his toes
but who had a right smart quintet
Ithat could swish a hoop blindfolded
at you-name-the-paces. The coach
rigged a basket on the brink of a
steep canyon, which slanted three
miles below, and his boys were or-
dered to shoot at it. If they missed
the backboard, or hit it so the re-
bound failed to net two points, the
ball was calculated to drop into the
abyss. And the shooter had to de-
scend the rocky mountainside' and
retrieve the ball every time he missed.
There were only twelve eligible
men in Pineville high, six more
than the Pineville budget could
afford. All except one wanted to
make the squad, and the odd
fellow refused to go out because it
meant wearing shoes. The in-
genious coach explained the foot-
wear was rubber, "just like being
barefooted," but the recalcitrant
one was a skeptic, claiming "That

a big hoop like 'at 'un wan't noth-

SquadTo Be Cut
In spite of the fact that five or six
football players have come out and
swelled the freshmen basketball try-
outs to over 50, Coach Ray Fisher
expects to have the squad cut down
to 20 by the end of the week.
Although about five or six of the
more outstanding boys are unlikely to
be pared from the squad, most of the
others cannot be sure that they will
still be with the squad at the be-
ginning of next week.
Fisher will depart from his usual
procedure when he moves his squad
down to the I-M for afternoon prac-
tice next week. In former years he
has waited until Christmas vacation
before leaving Waterman Gym.

But with six men Pineville almost,

arobably have won it, too, if the
coach hadn't used unsportsmanlike
language in the semi-finals. Because
he had whittled up two mahogany
benches, the authorities put in steel
chairs for the third game and the

And he said so . . . to the disqualifi-I

observer it was merelyanother

coach and star player of the De-

The number, is significant in
that it is the same numeral that

"Perhaps my only great ambition
still to be realized is to find the right
girl and settle down," said Charley
Gehringer last night in an interview.
This was one of the few statements
that the Fowlerville Flash could be
induced to part with as he lived up
to his reputation of "The Silent
Man" of baseball.
Charley made it plain, however, 1
that he did not receive the Most Val-
uable Player Award of the American
League with the indifference that
some papers ascribed to him. It
really meant the attainment of a
long sought-after goal and "natural-
ly it was a big thing in my life to
receive the award."

himself, does not know yet if he will
