he shared a forward position during
the greater part of the season, will do
regular duty in this position in the
remaining games.
Could Play In All Positions
That Barclay's absence will be felt
is undeniable. Coach Franklin' C.
Cappon, Wolverine coach, contacted
last night stated: "We can't very well
-afford to'lose Bill. A fine competitor
and an all around good basketball
player, he could be used in almost any
position. It is problematical that he
will play again this year."
Barclay had accounted for 38 points
in competition this year, 10 of these
in the Ohio State game. He did not
score against Illinois.
Team Leaves For Minnesota
Although Thomas is rated on par'
with the Flint athlete, the latter's ab-
sence materially lessens the Wolver-
ine reserve strength. With Barclay
gone, Cappon will have but one sub-
stitute of proven calibre, Dan Smick.
Barclay, a three-sport man, also
competes in football and golf.
The Wolverines depart at 5:20 p.m.
today bound for Chicago, when they
will travel to Minneapolis and Mad-
ison for games with Minnesota and
Wisconsin tomorrow and Monday
nights respectively.
The following men were selected to
make the trip: Captain John Town-
send, Jim Rae, Dan Smick;' Herm
Fishman, Ed. Thomas, Leo Beebe,
Charley Pink, Mannie Slavin, Russ
Dobson and Dave Wood.
These ten men will practice briefly
today before train time.
Yesterday's session was featured by
the usual inter-squad scrimmage with
all players participating, The work-
out was brief, scrimmage being lim-
ited to twenty minutes.
Hat men .Ready
For Dual Meet
Against State,
Although stopped in their opening
wrestling match by a strong Indiana
squad, Coach Cliff Keen's men will
seek their first win of the season
pgainst Michigan State's grapplers
Monday night at Yost Field Rouse.
By virtue of the new scoring sys-
tem the Wolverines were nosed out in
two matches by one point. Both co-
captain Earl Thomas and Frank
Morgan lost their contests by ihe
narrow margin of one tally.
Not only did the first dual meet of
the season show the defaults of the
new scoring system adopted by the
conference, but also the fact that
Keen's men were not quite up to par
Last year the Wolverines downed
the State team by a score of 24 to 0.
Although they have the same team as
last year, State will have a more ex-
perienced squad, and will also be
stronger in the 155 pound class.
Charles Friberg, runner up in the
national intercollegiate meet two
years ago, and who was out of com-
petition last year, will attempt to
bring at least one win back to East
To top off this week's work of prac-
tice there will be an intra-squad
tournament Friday afternoon in
which freshmen and reserve varsity
members will participate. Outstand-

ing of the yearlings will be Tom
Sparks, who will meet co-captain
Speicher, and Bill Coombs, who will
be matched against Harland Danner.
KALAMAZOO, Mich., Jan. 13.-P)
-Hopes of Western State Teachers
College for a winning indoor track
season were dealt a blow today when
two of the outstanding stars of the
teams were declared ineligible. Those
named were Roscoe Washington, of
Detroit, a high jumper who has been
credited with leaps of six feet five
inches, and Walter Farmer, a pole
vaulter who has attained the 13-foot

It's A Game ...
OUTSIDE, the eddying snow-large flakes of it-calsomined the wintry
grey landscape with a sheen of white. Under the Field House skylight,
protected from the sharp winds and moist chill, Michigan's cagers practiced
the tedious chores that make champions, oblivious to barometric conditions,
to the bitter sensations Washington must have felt at Valley Forge, to the
shock that jiggled our spine when we flopped on the icy State Street hill.
Disjointed thoughts assailed us.,
Fielding H. Yost sidled up, extracted a fresh stogie and sat down to
watch the dribbling cagers.
"Are they -hampions, Coach?"
He bit off the end of his cigar and chewed it fiercely for a moment.
"It's a game. No one knows, no one in the world. In baseball you barely
touch a ball, start a double play and the game's over. A few inches
away and the whole thing's different. The same principle operates in
every game. No one can know."
Someone inquired: "Who's the new coach?" and the Old Man greeted the
prodder with a moment of silence. "I got four more applications today,"
he smiled. And the discussion then became as cold as the breeze on the
back of our neck.
The Old Man Reminisces .. .
Somehow, the conversation veered around to wars, battlefields,
soldiers. The Old Man released his clench on the unlit cigar and
his eyes glowed suddenly. "I've visited the known scene of every battle-
field which America has fought on since it was settled. Revolutionary
war, Civil war, Mexican war. All of 'em. I lectured every morning to
the S.A.T.C. (Students Army Training Corps) during the war overseas.
We used the Sigma Chi parlor. I'd discuss the Eastern battle front with
'em. Every day I'd get information from the press, and point out the
progress on large maps we had."
He paused reflectively. "A lot of my boys, my football men, were over
there. Tom Hammond and Curt Redden ... two of my finest men ... fought
together. Curt died of the flu over there. Down in the Illinois Stadium, they
have a memorial for a man from every Big Ten school, and the "M" club
placed Curtis Redden's name on Michigan's memorial. I visit it every
time I'm down there . ."
Yost knows every inch of Civil War battlefield. Almost fanatical is his
interest in military detail. His father fought with Gen. Robert E. Lee for four
years and his uncle stood with Pickett's men at Gettysburg. He admires An-
drew Jackson, Robert E. Lee and Sam Houston.
"Houston was an interesting man," he continued his conversation.
"He was with Jackson at New Orleans. One day he left his wife and
family in Tennessee, no one knows why, and never returned. Then he
turned up in Texas, where he fought the famous battle of San Jacinto.
I was down there at the 100th anniversary of that battle two years
Then he drew an envelope out of his pocket and started jotting down
lines and little squares representing forts and columns of soldiers. "This is a
map of Houston's battle with Santa Anna, the Mexican general." It resembled
a gridiron to us, but the Old Man explained each mark and maneuver.
"Houston kept ordering retreat, and his men got tired of the do-nothing
tactics. They were grumbling, so he told them to hold a meeting and decide
for themselves what they wanted to do. They quit hollering then because
they didn't want to take the responsibility. Finally when Santa Anna
decided Sam wasn't going to fight, he didn't advance any more and his
men held a little siesta. While they were sleeping, Sam suddenly ordered his
trumpet blown and his men assembled. They took Santa Anna by complete
