Michigan Team
To Be Stronger
Than Expected
Oosterbaan Is Optimistic
About The Wolverines'
Court Prospects
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan is a pre-
judiced fellow these days, for he gives
his basketball team a better than
even chance to stop State Saturday
night even though it is the favorite.
Not only is he prejudiced, but Ben-
nie is also being stubborn, because
he refuses to agree with all the ex-
perts who are picking Michigan to
have another mediocre season.
No National title nor even a Big
Ten Championship is predicted by
the Wolverine mentor, but he is con-
fident that his squad will make many
coaches resort to taking headache
pills when the season gets underway.
State Coach Sings Blues
Over in East Lansing Coach Ben
Van Alstyne is singing the early sea-
son blues and in the same refrain
pouring sweet adjectives on his boys.
In one tune he wails about the lack
of reserves; and in the next he states
that his boys are so brilliant that he
will permit them to play a game fea-
turing an individualistic style and
disregard team-work.
Van Alstyne will bring a veteran
squad to Ann Arbor which will hold
a decided height advantage over
Michigan. The smallest man on the
team is guard Chet Aubuchon, who
stands about 5 ft. 10 in., while the
rest of the players average close to
the six foot mark. Despite his stature
Aubuchon is rated as one of the dead-
liest shots on the Spartan five, and
he paced State with 11 points in its
42 to 22 victory over Kalamazoo.
Hard To Rate Spartans
Although State won easily in its
opener it did not look too impressive,
but most observers believe that the
Spartan coach held his players back.
Also, Van Alstyne substituted rather
freely which made it difficult for
anyone to get a very good impression
of the ability of his starting line-up.
Although Michigan will not be in
peak playing condition in its first en-
counter, Oosterbaan is not worrying
for he believes that his squad is as far
advanced as it should be at this time
of the year. He is of the opinion
that part of Michigan's collapse af-
ter a great start last season was due
to reaching its best form too soon.
Among the men who have not ar-
rived at the point where they are
playing their best brand of ball is
Capt. Jim Rae. The lanky pivot man
has been hampered in this respect by
an arm injury from which he has
almost completely recovered. Also,
forward Charlie Pink is bothered with
a sore foot these days, and Dave
Wood, another front line man, is still
out with a charlie horse.

Chicago Wins In Opener
CHICAGO, Dec. 6.-(IP)-Univer-
sity of Chicago's basketball team op-
ened the 193 9-40 season tonight with
a 42 to 26 triumph over the Chicago
Teachers College. Dick Lounsbury,
veteran center, led the attack with six
field goals and six free throws. The
Maroons were ahead at the half 19 to
12.

IN THIS CORNER
By MEL FINEBERG_

It's Broun's-Opinion
On our hurried way to the sport
page yesterday morning we passed
over a page on which there were no
ads. We knew it couldn't be the
front page since there was no box
announcing blatantly to an expec-
tant campus that Christmas was only
nine shopping days away.
We were intrigued by this
strange page. What could it be?
And with the blood of Eric the
Red coursing through our veins
we had to explore. We asked
three people and finally one Phi
Bete told us it was the editorial
page. And on the bottom of
this, this editorial page, was a
column by Heywood Broun,
whom we had always thought
was a baseball writer. Misled
by this belief we started to read
and the first sentence shocked
us out of our usually staid som-
nolence. Mr. Broun, this ex-
communicated diamond dissec-
tor, tells the world that "After
watching the New York Giants
and the Washington Redskins
at the Polo Grounds recently it
seems to me that the profession-
als have pretty much taken foot-
ball away from the colleges."
Now this is a bold statement and
is not to be sloughed off lightly. Ob-
viously, and firstly, it appears that
Mr. Broun was under a misguided
star when he went to the Polo
Grounds. Maybe he thought that it
was still baseball time due to the
.fact that there is a baseball meet-
ing on. But regardless of his am-
nesic condition he makes a serious
charge when he says that the pro-
fessionals have taken football away
from the colleges. This is thievery,
larceny and burglary punishable by
from two and one-fourth to five years
in the plenipotentiary powers.
Mr. Broun substantiates his asser-
tions by saying that the pros give
every play the university try, thatt
not even the Army and Navy put on

a better roughhouse and that when
a man is slapped down (he probably
means tackled), his teeth rattle.
Here Mr. Broun reverts to his theatre
reviewing days when he watched
thespians like Popeye in Thimble
Theatre. We want not acting nor
teeth rattling. Actors can do the
first and babies the second. We
want football.
Mr. Broun claims as proof
that the competitive spirit runs
high is that "one of the Red-
skins (a Washington player not
an early American ala Charles
Beard) followed the referee off
the field in the nope of being
able to take a poke at him." Now
such ungentlemanly conduct
would never appear in a college
game. Why it's unheard of.
Under similar circumstances in
a university an enthusiastic
player might shove an official
but this would be only because
he had tripped over one of the
sideline markers.
There is a semblance of truth in
one statement, however, when this
fugitive from a box score says "Yes,
the pro games have all the usual
features of a college contest and
many more to boot." While it is
true that many play-for-pay games,
are settled by field goals, the seri-
ousness of world conditions today
makes this no time for cheap puns.
One more point. In his priest-
ly fashion, Mr. Broun explains
that when a man is hurt he
comes out without tears or argu-
ment and the game goes on.
True. True. Yes, true. But not
through choice. And the game
is delayed, albeit just slightly,
while they pick up the pieces
which might have been scattered
by a heavy wind. Then they
wheel the pieces off. This is not
necessary in college games since
the players are so well taped be-
fore they come out on the field
that they don't fall apart as
readily.
