To Aid Needy'

Spartans Held In Check
By Michigan Offensive
Led ByFitzgerald, Rae
State Scoring Led
By Phillips' 7 Points
A surprising sophomore, Bob Fitz-
gerald, entered the Wolverine line-
up mid-way in the first half of last
night's opener, sparked the Wolver-
ines, and teamed up with Capt. Jim
Rae, who made a great comeback, to
pace Michigan in turning back a
favored Michigan State basketball
squad 33 to 27 in a whirlwind finish
at the Field House.
With less than nine minutes to go
Fitzgerald took a pass in the corner
from Rae, who led the Michigan at-
tack with 14 points, and sank a one-
handed push shot to take a one-
point lead by a 24-23 score. State had
been leading up to that time, since
early in the first frame.
State Comes Back
The Spartans tied it up immediate-
ly when Joe Gerard, substitute for-
ward for Bob Phillips who went out
on personal fouls, sank the first of
two foul shots and missed the second
which would have given State the
lead after being fouled by Herb Bro-
Phillips went out of the contest
with 12 minutes to go in the second
half, after leading the State attack
with seven points, which were good
enough'to make him high point man
for his team at the close of the game.
Rae put Michigan ahead 26-24 soon
after Gerard tied the score with a
trick shot under the basket, but after
a time out, Bob Morris flipped in a
backhand shot to tie up the count
again. With four minutes to go Fitz
sank a long one from outside the
foul circle after taking a short pass
from Charlie Pink, who did a perfect
job of blocking for the 6 ft. 5 in.
Great Defensive Work
That ended Fitzgerald's scoring for
the night with eight points to take
second place honors in the Wolverine
scoring column, but he wasn't through
for he followed this up with some
great defensive work inorder to main-
tain a narrow margin.
Rae fouled Gerard while blocking
out with his left arm and holding
the ball in his right, and the Spartan
forward made it good to bring the
score up to 28-27, still in favor of
Michigan. State then calledtime
out, and Marty Hutt returned to the
With a minute and 45 seconds to go
go play was resumed with Michigan
leading by one point. Hutt got the
jump on little Mike Sofiak after they
scrambled for a loose ball in the
Wolverine territory. Then Fitzgerald
broke up a State pass under the bas-
ket with a great stretch, and Michi-
gan resorted to freezing the ball.
Rae Is Fouled
State pulled out from underneath
its basket in an attempt to break up
the back line passing of the Wolver-
ines, and Rae broke for a wide open
basket and was fouled by center Max
Hindman while attempting to shoot.
Twenty-five -seconds of play re-
mained and so Rae chose to take the
ball out-of-bounds, after sinking his
first basket to take a two-point lead,
in accordance with the new rule
which permits a team to shoot or
keep the ball in its possession when a
foul shot is granted to it.
Michigan renewed its back court
passing in an attempt to kill time and
with two seconds of play left the
Spartans again pulled out from the
basket. Fitzgerald then faked a pass
and bounced the ball into Rae who
made a fast break for the meshes

Volunteer Student Army
Is Ready For 1940 War

To NeedyStudents
More than 400 students and facul-
ty members, comprising the Good-
fellow Army, will cover the campus
and downtown area all day tomor-
row in a determined effort to sky-
rocket this year's Goodfellow Fund
to an 'unprecedented high.
The volunteer Army, studded with
many of the campus' "name" stu-
dents and faculty and inspired with
the aims of the drive, will begin its
activities at 7:45 a.m. tomorrow..

fellow drive In a statement given las
night to The Daily. He said: "I
heartily commend the enterprise of
The Michigan Daily in initiating its
Goodfellow drive. One may partici-
pate in an activity of this sort with
personal satisfaction and the assur-
ance that its objective is genuinely
helpful to the community in which
we are living."
Sale Supplies Fund
The proceeds of the Fund will be
raised by the sale of a special Good-
fellow edition of The Daily and
through prviate contributions, it will
be the successful sale of of The
Daily that will chiefly constitute the
duties of the Goodfellow Army.
Tomorrow's campaign will be the
fifth in a traditional series of efforts
to raise funds for needy students
and Ann Arbor families. The drve
was originally conceived five years
ago at a historic meeting betwen
a group of undergraduate leaders
intensely interested in the problems-
of the needy, and Mrs. Gordon W.
Brevoort, secretary of the local Fam-
ily Welfare Bureau. At this meet-
ing the group agreed upon the neces-
sity for a single, coordinated drive
to raise funds for the indigent. That
drive has now become an established
Michigan tradition. It is the only
annual all-campus organized and
sponsored charity drive. It is a-
ministered solely by students.
The Goodfellow drive, which last
year raised more than $1,100 and has
in the past raised as much as $1,675
in a single day's campaign, enlisted
in 1938 more than 350 Goodfellow-
volunteers who for more than 10
hours canvassed Ann Arbor from the'
Engineering Arch to Main Street.
This year's Goodfellow Army plans
to march the same field in their con-
certed attack to raise funds.
Aids Throughout Year
The Goodfellow drive, character-
ized as the student body's most hu-
manitarian project, is designed to aid
the needy not only during the Christ-
mas season but throughout the whole
year. The allocation of funds is not
constant each year, but annually the
Deans' Discretionary Fund and the
Family Welfare Bureau receive a
share of the proceeds resulting from
the one-day sale of The Daily's
special Goodfellow issue.
Twenty-five campus leaders con-
stitute this year's executive commit-
tee for the Goodfellow drive. Serv-
