Of Big




Training Table
. e
Action Shelved
Until Next May
Rabb's Case Is Referred
To Committee; Chicag
Gets Swim Tourney
Track Dates Fixed
CHICAGO, Dec. 4.--P)--The Unit-
ed States Military Academy was re-
stored to the list of opponents eli-
gible for competition with Western
Conference Universities today, when
the Big Ten Faculty Committee re-
scinded the ban placed on the Cadets
in 1932.
The Cadets were barred from par-
ticipating with Big Ten teams be-
cause the West Point school allowed
three years of competition to players
who had previous seasons of play
with other colleges. The conference
limits its athletes to a combined total
of three years on Varsity teams.
Illinois May Compete
Only football relations with the
Army are expected to develop be-
cause West Point is too far removed
from Big Ten territory to make fea-
sible competition in minor sports. Il-
linois and Ohio State are the only
schools likely to schedule the Cadets.
It will be impossible, however, to ar-
range football dates with the Army
until 1940 or later because Big Ten
schedules have been tentatively ar-
ranged until that time. Illinois, which
sponsored the move for the Army's
reinstatement may be able, however,
to find a ,place on its card for the
Cadets with whom the Illini wound
up a two game colorful series in 1934.
Trainig Table Deferred
The Big Ten training table prob-
lem which is, perennially brought up,
was discussed, butthe committee de-
ferred definite action until the May
meeting, which will .be held at olum-
bus, Ohio, at the time of the Big Ten
track and field championship meet.
It was a belief of several faculty
members that permitting a training
table for the football squads alone
would be discrimination against oth-
er athletes. Establishing a training
table for all teams would entail too
great a burden for some institutions,
it was argued.
Rabb Is Discussed
The case of John Rabb, Ohio State
University fullback, was referred to
the eligibility committee. Rabb played
freshman football at Fordham and
the committee will decide whether
this shall be regarded as a year of
competition or whether Rabb will be
eligible to play one more year of Var-
sity football for the Buckeyes.
;The Big Ten swimming champion-
ships were awarded to Chicago,
March 11 and 12, with Northwestern
and Chicago co-hosts. The meet will
be held in a new high school pool.
The baseball coaches, after drawing
schedules for 1938 agreed to play two
for four consecutive week ends. The
purpose is to prevent a team from
spacing its games so it can go through
the entire season using only one

Over 50 Foot Marks
Michigan's Varsity and freshman
track teams ran through their first
official time trials yesterday after-
noon at the Field House with results
varying from excellent to sub-Wol-
verine par.
To be classed definitely on the en-
couraging side of the record book
were the performances in the dis-
tance, middle distance and shot put.
Good but capable of improvement
were the efforts in the quarter mile!
and hurdles while results in the
sprints and pole vault showed the
ravages of injury, withdrawal andC
Power Lacking

virtually crush their opponents not1

Big Ten indoor and outdoor cham-l
pion, Bill Watson scarcely exerted4
'himself as he bettered the 50 footf
mark in the shot put. Derth of
sprinters, a rarity on a Hoyt track
team, may cause the big Negro ace,
already good for points in four eventsE
to be pressed into service as'a speed
merchant. Watson has been clocked7
in 6.5 for the 60 this year.X
Phenomenal Performance r
Ralph Schwarzkopf, sophomoreX
two-miler, ran his first mile and a
half in a set schedule but opened upt
in the last half and wound up byt
sprinting his last 220 yard lap int
28.4 seconds, a performance littlet
short of phenomenal, to wind up T
three-quarters of a lap in front ofi

Most surprising performance of the '
afternoon was credited to Bill Bu-
chanan. slight Junior 880 man, who.
flashed a long suspected ability which'
until yesterday had failed to pay off..
Buchanan never relinquished an earlyI
lead to win handily over his more
touted rivals, Tom Jester, freshman t
record holder, and Doug Hayes whos

A conflict in the Irish track sched-
ule caused a cancellation of the
game the two schools had set for
March 5 but athletic officials were
trying to find another date, with a
possibility that the meet would be
held a Ann Arbor March 26.
Tentative arrangements were madej
for a wrestling match but no datej
was agreed upon.
The athletic directors, Fielding H.
Yost and Elmer Layden. here for the
annual Big Ten meeting of coaches,
were seen several times in friendly
and animated conversation but both
said the question of a football game
had not been taken up.
The Irish are booked solid through
1941 except for the opening date that
year and Michigan meets Michigan
State that day. Consequently it ap-
peared unlikely that a game would
be scheduled before 1942.
Gee Walker Signs
W.ite Sox Contract
CHICAGO, Dec. 4.-diP-Gerald
Walker. hard -hitting outfielder ac-
quired by the Chicago White Sox at
the minor league meetings this week
in a trade with the Detroit Tigers,
signed a one-year contract with the
White Sox today. Walker made a brief
visit to the office of J. Louis Comis-
key. Sox owner, signed articles and;
continued on tio Detroit.
The former Tiger Star expressed
pleasure with the Sox terms, which!
were not disclosed, and said he looked
for "a great season for the White Sox
in 1938."

ex-captain Bob Osgood finished two!
yards back of holder of the world's
120-yd, high hurdle mark in his best
performance. Stan Kelley, sopho-
more high hurdle hope, did not take
part in the time trial.
Harvey Clarke and Ross Faulkneri
battled it out for two laps in the 440,
the decision finally going to Clarke
by a foot in the best quarter mile
time the trials produced.
Leutritz Wins
Almost a startling as Buchanan's
performance if not more so was the
upset sprung in the second heat of
the quarter in which Jack Luetritz,
gangling yearling runner, who had
been inserted in the race for exercise
cleaned up the field which included
Chuck Miller, senior veteran and
Waldo Abbot, junior.

tion of the use of starting blockĀ§,
stood up at the sound of the gun,
poked along for a lap and a half of 1

bering a date he had to keep, passed

trail too, but the Maize and Blue have
the artillery. And from all indica-
tions there should be plenty of noise
when things start popping.
At present the first team is well
equipped in all departments. Leading
the cagers this year is Capt. John
Townsend, twice all-Conference, a
superb shotmaker and passer, and
generally recognized as one of the
foremost cagers in the country. Town-
send, who finished third among the
,Conference scorers last year with 121
points, will be the hub of the team's
,attack this season as well as an im-
portant cog in their defensive ma-
Probable sucessor to ex-Captain
Johnny Gee this year is Jimmy Rae,
lanky sophomore, who has virtually
ousted Danny Smick out of a starting
job. Rae will pair up with Townsend
at the front line and has all the re-
quisites for making a success of it.
A good passer and fine ball hand- i
ler, Rae uses his large hands to good
advantage and with Townsend act-
Squash, Handball
ToureysTo Start
Squash and handball all-campus
tournaments will get under way at
the Intramural Sports Building on
Monday, it was recently announced.
Tournaments in these sports for grad-
uate students will also start at the
same time.
The handball tournaments promise
some highly entertaining matches
with Stilson Ashe, '39, assuming the
favorite's role in the all-campus di-
vision, while Norm Fredericks and
Milt Lappin, described by Assistant
Director Riskey as the two best hand-
ballers on the campus, are expected to
dominate the graduate division.
At the same time, on Monday, play
in all-campus and graduate squash
tournaments will be initiated.

ing as a steadying influence should
fill the bill. It's a large order too, for
his predecessor, the ponderous Gee,
tallied 101 points in Conference com-
petition last season.
The back line fits well into Michi-
gan's system, combining speed, ex-
pert ball handling, dribbling dexterity
and stamina-all essential in this po-
Herm Fishman, the half pint sen-
ior, is back for his final year. An ex-
pert dribbler, Fishman has a lot of
cage experience behind him and
should have a good year.
His running mates are a pair of
juniors, Leo Beebe and Ed Thomas.
Beebe is a reliable man-cool and
aggressive-with a lot of natural abil-
ity. Thomas is extremely fast and a
dangerous threat on the break with
Townsend or Rae feeding.
The reserve ranks are unusually
buttressed. The front line subs are
Dan Smick, still an outside possibility
for a starting job, and John Nichol-
son whose form improves daily. Oth-
ers are Mannie Slavin, Vince Valek,
Bill Lane and Ben Weaver.
Back line subs are even more num-
erous and imposing. Bill Barclay,
the reliable senior, is certain to see a
lot of action. Two sophomores, Char-
ley Pink and Bob Palmer, are develop-
ing fast and will be in there when
the occasion warrants. Other candi-
dates are Dick Long, Russ Dobson,
Fred Trosko and Dave Wood.
