Purdue, in three games during the
recent recess, totalled 187 points or
better than a point and a half per
minute. Stanford, against Duquesne
last week, scored 92 points, or more
than two a minute. Does this in-
ordinate activity wreak such havoc
on the human torso that heart spe-

critics hold, with patients within a

That, at least, seems to be the
current contention among cer-
tain observers, who charitably
suggest an immediate reversion
to the safe and sane center jump,
which permitted brief relief from
the tenseness of sustained effort
that characterizes the present
brand of bounce, basket and
bustle. These alarmists claim
the advantages of the foot race
posing as basketball now do not
offset the physical destruction
accruing therefrom, and perhaps
they're right. But in their reac-
tionary haste they fail to search
for some means of relief in the
new set-up.
For example, hockey makes equal,,
if not greater, demands upon the
body than does basketball; yet, no
hue and cry is forthcoming to sug-
gest playing hockey to the three-
quarter tempo of the Blue Danube
Waltz. In the blur of burning speed,
the rough clash of flying bodies and
the ever-present danger of a sharp,
upset blade slicing a vital spot,
hockey is doubly dangerous. And ac-
tion is almost ceaseless. Six men,
with infrequent substitutions, could
not possibly be expected to weather
60 minutes of swift and severe skat-
ing, purposeful bumping and, some-
times, impetuous mayhem. Hockey
officials failed to become unduly
alarmed, however, and devised a
simple system of substitutions where-
by one line and a set of defensemen
replaces those playing every few
minutes. Only a goalie plays
throughout, and though his position
is one of the toughest in the book,
the physical demands as he bows be-
fore the goal aren't quite as taxing.
Spike James, Michigan's crack net-
minder, weighs only 125 pounds and
has shown no signs of wilting yet.
Since basketball probably got
its cue for added speed from the
popularity of hockey and its
zephyr-like whoop-de-doo, the
hardwood powers might borrow
further from the ice game and
develop these reserve combina-
tions for mass substitutions. The
new hockey line manages to swish
onto the ice and replace the
old group with scarcely a
break in the flow of action be-
cause subs are not required to
report to the referee, as in bas-
ketball. In such the same man-
ner, substitutions in basketball
might be made.
After all, college games are designed
to permit as many students as pos-
sible the benefits of participation,
teamplay and coaching. Moreover,
liberal use'of reserves spare the regu-
lar men complete exhaustion and
would likely silence the critics. The
objections that removing key men
weakens a team too much, is an-

can look ahead to a full and complete9
schedule, one that, when it is finished,e
will include at least 19 games. v
The most outstanding item on the
list is the single game scheduled with
the University of Illinois at Cham-E
paign on March 10.r
Not since Wisconsin dropped outt
of the Big Ten has any other schoolsC
besides Michigan and Minnesota ins

almost without warning, the south-
ernmost university in the loop offered r
its first ice team in its history.
Many Reasons For Entering r
The reasons for the sudden sched-
uling of the Michigan team are ap-
parent,,Illinois would like to taket
part in Big Ten hockey because it has
the facilities for it. It would mean
another sport on the Illini calendar. 1
Heretofore the rink has been re-1
served for Intramural play. Schedul-
ing Michigan, which has been known
as a school with g6od hockey teams
will give it publicity. It was only re-
cently that a necessary appropriation
was received to cover the additional1

to cope with Michigan-that is, can
they, in one short season, develop a
team. This remains to be seen.
Can't Hope For Title This Year
The addition of Illinois to the win-
ter sport card now makes the matter
of the Big Ten championship more
than just a battle between Minnesota
and Michigan, but it is doubtful that,
in their first year, the Illini can even
hope to cop the title.
Although the game is carded for
Champaign there may still be a1
chance for a game between the Wol-
verines and the Illini here at the Col-
iseum. However, Michigan's hockey
schedule is almost complete, and it
will be hard to find an open date for
a clash on Ann Arbor ice.
Illinois, even though it is south,
compared with the rest of the league,
has on its campus one of the best and
biggest college ice hockey rinks in the
country. During the last year it was
not maintained and rapid deteriora-
tion set in. But with the opening of
school this year funds were found to
put the place in good repair again.
swered in hockey. As a common rule,
with both teams practicing it, neith-
er team would suffer greatly. And
the whirlwind which fans seek to
satiate their desire for more speed
in their athletic events could better
be produced by frequent injections
of fresh talent.

All-Veteran Team Hopes
For Revenge TrjiumphE
In Saturday Match
For two vei-y good reasons Coach
"Billy" Thom's grapplers will be out
to defeat the Wolverines in their' op-
ening wrestling match Saturday night
at Bloomington. Last year Coach
Keen's men won by the narrow mar-
gin of one point, bringing about the
second dual meet defeat that In-
diana has suffered in five years.
When co-captains John Speicher
and Earl Thomas arrive on foreign
soil they are going to find a very re-
vengeful and powerful opponent
awaiting them. Having the good for-
tune of losing no one by graduation,
and gaining two through eligibility,
the Hoosier's will have a stronger
team this year than the one that
barely lost to Michigan last season.
"Two-Bits" Myers Is Tops
In the 118 pound class "Two-Bits"
Myers will seek a win over John
Speicher, whom he fought to a draw
in an overtime contest last year. As
a sophomore Myers won the Big Ten
Championship and repeated that
feat as a junior.

The Spartans, who met Auburn in

for their 6-0 defeat. They stepped

The Hoosiers have had two pre-
liminary matches to date and have
had no trouble in showing that they

against Cincinnati they won by a
score of 30 to 0. At Chicago, in an
invitational meet, they also came out
on top.
