Townsend plying his magic at the
pivot post, and one without him. Al
the risk of being obvious, it may be
observed that the former is distinctly
Before Jake put in his belated ap
pearance yesterday afternoon, the
Varsity appeared so-so against a
scrappy, undersized freshman squad
Dan Smick, who was operating in
Townsend's stead, can acquit him-
self creditably in any hardwood
league, and will probably start and
finish many Wolverine tilts this sea-
son. But without Jake, no matter
who's in action, Coach Cappon lacks
the easy assurance and snap that
characterizes it when the "Hoosier
skipper" is on the feeding line.
Townsend possesses indescribable
intuition in his passing, although it's
hard sometimes to believe he doesn't
have a hidden eye in the back of
his head.. A pair of strong wrists
enable him to flip the bs gfr mris-
possible angles.. Lest it be mistaken
that he's a flash-in the Barney Old-
field sense-permit this observation:
lie plays a sound game, without any
wild climactic flings which usually
end in a rout.
Experience has taught him to take
daring chances with his passes, but
they are rare. Usually, he's very
methodical, searching for a sure
opening before firing. He's one of
the few cagers who can stand still
and appear sensational at the same

vealed that roly-poly Herm Fish-
man, steady, durable and colorful, will
provide an able running mate for
Hoosier Jake. Though not a speed
merchant, Herm reacts with lightning
quickness, which makes him plenty
valuable in Cappon's pat formations.
Some day he may fake himself out
of his shoes, but not until a frantic
guard is driven to distraction. The
little southpaw has a tricky one-hand
push shot which is hard to stop, and
he can pop them through the mesh
from the distance. His clever drib-
bling is effective in bringing the ball
down the floor. ,
Le Beebe, an aggressive guard for-
ever willing to learn and consequently
improving all the time, seems to be
Cappon's choice for one of the back
positions. Ed Thomas and Bill Bar-
clay are flip-up choices for the other
back spot.. Both boys are fast. Tho-
inas is a pretty fair long shot, and
Barclay is a quick starter, effective in
breaking fast for a "dog." Bill's estab-
lished quite a reputation for his com-
petitive spirit.. When the chips are
down, he's there-and prominently,
Jim Rae is the sophomore for whom
everyone has a knowing smile. A
paser of extraordinary ability, he
ihould relieve Jake of those two-
men-on-one arrangements. Moreover,
the lanky center handles himself with
grace under the baskets. Rae's bril-
liance is not likely to eclipse Smick's
chances, however, Big Dan is a good
passer and good shot and knows the
cage angles. He's been called a Sat-
urday athlete because he rarely scin-
tillates in practice.
And Cappie has others, like Man-
nie Slavin, Dick Long, Charlie Pink,
John Nicholson, Russ Dobson and Bob
Palmer. More in particular about
them in another column. Yet, the
tacit Wolverine mentor is a study in
restrained optimism. His chances
in the Big Ten are exceedingly bright,
with Northwestern and Minnesota
providing the dangerous opposition.
