A 11owl Of Soup .
The Double was very sad yesterday when it noticed that Nebraska had
been selected to represent the East in the Rose Bowl classic New Year's Day.
It was just two days ago that we had submitted our own plan to
Pasadena, and we had hoped that it would have been whole-heartedly
accepted by the committee. Realizing that the other Bowl affairs had
soaked up all the truly eligible contenders, we suggested that Stanford
meet San Fizea School of Silver Nitrate Mining in Middle Chile at the
Rose Bowl this year.
Don't kid yourself about this San Fizea outfit. It ran roughshod over
all Sou .h American opposition during the past campaign. The Hi-Ho-Silver
Nitrate lads beat Tucuman Tech, UABA (University of Argentina at Buenos
Aires). and Amazon Aggies, all South American gridiron strongholds, by
The Double's idea was to make this thing one of those Pan-American
affairs promoting general friendship among the various countries. Inter-
national sportsmen have been raving about that sort of proposition for a
long time now.
But seriously, the poor Rose Bowl committee must have felt a little
ashamed in choosing the Cornhuskers to represent the East.
Nebraska has a fine team. We have no complaints about that. It'
lost only one game this year and that to the Golden Gophers of Minne-
sota. The Cornhuskers completely dominated the Bix Six Conference
and easily captured the championship.
But even then, Nebraska is no Rdse Bowl contender. It lacks the glamour,
the alumni and the universal appeal that previous Pasadena visitors have
This all goes to show you what a mess this bowl game idea has become.
These New Year's Day classics aren't what they were originally meant to be.
Chamber of Commerce promotional stunts, big business deals and inter-
bowl competitions have taken the place of; what once was an interesting
While the Sugar Bowl tasted success this year by, getting the pick
of the nation's grid squads, it will only mean that the Pasadena bunch
will have to make a bigger proposition next winter to get things running
in their channels again. Rivalries such as these can go on and on, and
get worse and worse. '
Obviously, the Western Conference, in its meeting next week, will not
pass the proposal to have the Big Ten champ play in Pasadena each New
Year's Day. The fact that five schools already have openly expressed their
negative views makes that almost a certainty.
In a way, the Double doesn't blame them. This Bowl idea, as we have
pointed out, is far too much of a Chamber of Commerce publicity stunt to
warrant the Conference approval.
One Chicago writer told of a good plan the other day. He suggested
that the Pacific Coast Conference and the Big Ten champions play a
post-season gridiron clash, but not in the Rose Bowl.
It would be held one year in the Mid-West and the following year on
the West Coast. Instead of making the teams wait until New Year's Day,
this battle Mould be waged two weeks after the season closed.
A plan like that would take a lot of the glamour away from the bowl
games as they now stand.
It would take a lot of this commercial mess out of football.

To 19 Cagemen
By NORM MILLER
With the Michigan State game
only a few nights away and his Var-
sity first stringers sorely in need of
work in order to round into a smooth
functioning playing unit, Coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan pared his cage squad
down to 19 men following practice
The cagers retained were-Guards:
Captain Herb Brogan, George Rueh-
le, Jim Grissen, Bill Houle, Leo Doyle,
John Hanzlick and Dick Wakefield;
Forwards: Mike Sofiac, Bob Fitz-
gerald, Bill Cartmill, Bill Herrmann,
Mel Comm, Don Holman, Hal West-
er, and Joe Glasser; and centers: Jim
Mandler, Penny Morris, Bob Wines
and Bob Bartlow.
Oosterbaan sent the squad through
a long three-hour session devoted
mostly to scrimmage yesterday. The
Wolverine mentor worked a first team
of Brogan and Ruehle at the guard
position, Sofiac and Fitsgerald at the
forward posts, and Mandler at center.
Cartmill and Herrmann were also
used on the "A" team, replacing the
Brogan and Mandler were the big
guns as the first stringers defeated
a "B" team composed of Grissn and
Houle, guards; Westerman and Com-
in, forwards, and Morris at center.
The Wolverine leader, off to a slow
start this season, appeared to have
regained his shooting eye as he con-
nected with several long set shots.
Mandler, elongated sophomore
pivot man, continued to look impres-
sive and will probably draw the start-
ing center assignment in Saturday's
game with the Spartans.
Forward Berth Open
Meanwhile, a stiff battle for the
left forward berth was brewing be-
tween Fitsgerald, Cartmill and Herr-
mann. "Fitz" and Cartmill have the
height advantage over the tiny De-
troit senior, but Herrmann has shown
a wealth of improvement since last
year and has been pressing his taller
rivals to the limit.
Another cager who has attracted
Bennie's eye has been Bill Houle,
sophomore guard candidate. The
blonde newcomer has displayed a
great deal of speed and agressiveness
and may break into the lineup as
a replacement for Brogan or Rueh-

NEW YORK, Dec. 2.-P)-Minne-
sota's Golden Gophers were voted
the No. 1 college football team of
1940 today in the final Associated:
Press ranking poll of the season.
At the top of the list for the three
preceding weeks, the Western Con-
ference champions were named first
by 65 and second by 55 of the 133
experts throughoutdthe country who
took part in the deciding vote. In
all the Gophers polled 1,244 points
as they took first place won a year
ago by Texas A. and M.
The Aggies, who had been runners-
up, dropped down to sixth place as
a result of their 7-0 defeat by Texas,
their only loss of the year. Second
place went to Stanford. the West's

didate; third to Michigan, beaten
only by Minnesota; fourth to Ten-
nessee, which finished second in 1939
and for the third straight year com-
pleted its regular schedule without
loss or tie, and fifth to Boston Col-
lege, No. 1 Eastern team which will
play Tennessee in the New Orleans
Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day.
The last four places went to Ne-
braska's Big Six champions, another
team whipped only by Minnesota
and now booked to play Stanford in
the Rose Bowl; Northwestern, which
lost to Minnesota and Michigan; un-
beaten but once-tied Mississippi

entry in Miami's Orange Bowl, and
Washington, pre-season favorite but
end-of-season runner-up in the

A comparison of the 1939 and 1940

For Coveted Soccer Trophy
By ART HILL
The Wolverine hockey team
dropped a 7-5 decision to the London
A. C. Saturday but it now seems pos-
sible that the game was not the only!
thing Eddie Lowrey's boys lost.
Although Capt. Charley Ross' in-
jury seems to have responded suf-
ficiently to treatment so that there is
a strong liklihood that he will be able
to play against the University of
Western Ontario next Saturday, Paul
Goldsmith suffered a severely bruised
hand and may not be able to see ac-
tion against the lads from north of
In spite of the loss in the opener,
all is not lost as far as Wolverine
hockey fans are concerned. In ana-
lyzing the game, the first point to
consider is the performance of Hank
Loud, new Michigan goalie. On the
debit side of the ledger (to take the
bad news first) was that first goal
that the visitors tallied.
Ken McFadden fired the puck from
just inside the blue line and since
there was no one in the way to block
Hank's vision, it looked like an easy
chance. Loud missed that one - but
from that point on he played excel-
lent hockey and proved that Lowrey
had made no mistake in starting him.
Nerves can do funny things to an
athlete and Loud was a very nervous
lad at the, start of Saturday's game.
Johnny Gillis showed plenty of
fight in his first try at intercollegiate
hockey. The reformed swimmer,
handicapped by an injured leg, gave
promise of developing into one of the
most valuable players on the squad
before the season is over. When John-
ny quit swimming to go out for hock-
ey, he gave Eddie Lowrey good reason
for saying, "Thank you, Matt Mann!"
If Goldsmith's injury does not im-
prove by next Saturday, Gillis may
draw the starting center spot for the
Western Ontario tilt.
All sophomores interested in try-
ing out for positions as track man-
agers are requested to report to
Yost Fieldhouse between 3 and 5
p.m. today or Wednesday.

While their countrymen across the
seas decide their battles with cannon
balls, the members of the Interna-
tional Center decide their battles over
here with soccer balls.
For the tenth year in a row the In-
ternational Center has organized a
soccer league, and for the fourth
consecutive year the teams will be
competing for the coveted Princess
Neel Kanti, Bhadra trophy. The
Princess attended school here in 1937
and presented this trophy to the Cen-
ter in her name andkthe name of her
father in Ahmedabak, India.
The league is divided into four
teams this year; Turkish teams 1 and
2, the South American team, and the
International Center team.
The players are far above the aver-_
age of any American College team
and are the equal of most of the pro-
fessional teams in the country. Only
several weeks ago Turkish team 1
lost a 3-2 match to the famous Chrys-
ler team of Detroit.
Leading player of the League is
27 year old Uefili Yalter. Yalter was
not only captain of the champion
Turkish team last year, but is recog-
nized 'by most experts as one of the
leading soccer players in the country.
The number of students participat-
ing in these matches is increasing at
a rapid rate. In the last two weeks
alone, more than 35 students have
arrived front Turkey and of these
15 have enrolled in the soccer league.
With the soccer season past the
halfway mark the Turkish team 1
has established itself as the favorite,
not only because it won the cham-
pionship last year but also because
of its many impressive victories so
far this year.
Previous to 1939 the Chinese stu-
dents were by far the leading soccer
players on the campus, but since
the Turkish government has been
sending students over to this coun-
try to study engineering they have
taken the soccer limelight away from
their Far Eastern cousins.
In many of the matches already
played, more than nine different na-

Giants Sign Hartnett
ATLANTA. Dec. 2--(A')-The New
York Giants announced today that
Leo (Gabby) Hartnett. former man-
ager of the Chicago Cubs, had been
hired as a player-coach for the 1941
Stoneham said the hiring of Hart-
nett would not affect the status of
the Giants' other coaches, Travis
Jackson and Frank Snyder.
Hartnett had been with the Cubs
ever since he entered the Major
Leagues in 1922, and set an all-time
record. He entered the major leagues
in 1922, and set an all-time record by
catching 100 or more games per sea-

Last season Hartnett appeared in
only 37 games and batted .262.
