EAST LANSING, Dec. 8.--(Special
to The Daily)-Michigan State's bas-
ketball team flashed surprising pow-
er in their opening game of the Our-
rent season here tonight, overwhelm-
ing little Hope College in a 51 to 27!
basket barrage.
State jumped to a 16 to 6 lead after
eight minutes of play had passed in
the first period and never were head-
ed. The Spartans led 30 to 17 at the

Rival Teams Quake As
Grid Aces Take Court
It seems as if they're just insep-
arable. The football season is over,
but big Joe Savilla, the six-foot three
inch tackle, and his little pal, Herc
Renda, are teammates once more,
this time as members of the Grid
Aces basketball team, one of theen-
tries in the independent division of
the intramural league.
Savilla plays center and Renda for-
ward on the Aces, a team composed
solely of members of the football
squad. It's roster includes Archie
Kodros, the barrel-chested sopho-
more center, Herm Ulevitch, who is
the team's playing manager, Dave
Gates, Don Cash, Joe Goldberg, and
Ed Frutig.

Return Of Irish To Wolverine
Schedules Favored By Coachesa

Two sophomore forwards, George
Falkowski and Marty Hutt, led the
State parade, collaberating for 31
points. Falkowski accounted for 19
of these, tallying nine field goals and
a foul in his first game as a Spartan.
Hope Never Had Chance
The hopelessly outclassed Hope
contingent never had a chance. The
big State quintet, averaging over six
feet in height, practically controlled
the ball at will. All of Falkowski's
scoring was done from underneath
leis own basket on set up shots as the
smaller Hope squad found Spartan
height and form too great an obstacle
to beat.
Big Hutt was a constant threat,
his all around play sparking the State
attack. Along with veteran Ben
Dargush, Spartan center, who net-
ted eight points, these two sopho-
mores ran wild from their front line
Substitute Frequently
Using a fast break almost exclusive-
ly, State broke this front line trio into
the clear for set ups time and again
throughout the game. The twoy
guards, Leo Callahan and Howardl
Kraft, had little chance to show their
ability but fitted well into the State
machine when needed.
Frequent State substitutions found
12 Spartans in action during the
game although the first team played
the greater portion of the final period.
In' this frame, Hope scored only three
times from the floor.
Don Thomas was the only visitor
who managed to shake off the Spar-,
tan's tight defense to any extent. He1
scored four field goals and added
three fouls for 11 points.

EAST LANSING, Dec. 8.-- (AP) -
The Michigan State College football
team hit the pigskin trail again to-
day when more than 40 husky Spar-
tans reported for 'the first post-sea-
son drill in State's history.
Forced indoors by a driving snow,
the team went through setting up
exercises and ran through signals for
little more than an hour in the col-
lege's Demonstration Hall.
Despite a layoff since Nov. 27, the
first string team showed a snap that
should give Auburn a headache when
State faces the southern team in the
Orange Bowl at Miami on New Year's
Coach Charley Bachman said he
would follow the same routine Thurs-
day, but indicated he would take the
team outdoors for a real workout
Friday if the weather permitted. He
said he planned no more than two or
three scrimmage sessions before State
leaves for the south Dec. 21.
Majors End Uneventful
Meeting Without A Deal=
CHICAGO, Dec. 8.- (P) - The
dullest major league baseball meeting
in recent years ended today with both
the National and American circuits
pulling a "balk."
There was not a single deal of im-
portance during the major meetings.
Managers succeeded in creating noth-
ing more than rumor "smoke" which
continued to drift about as the dele-
gates packed bags for departure. The
Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds, it
was reported, still were dickering, but
Cub officials indicated there was lit-
tle likelihood of any action.i
