CHICAGO Dec. 6.-4P)-Two im-
portant questions gripped athletic
directors, football coaches and others
at the opening of the Western Con-
ference winter meeting today.
The first question: What decision
will'the faculty committee make to-
morrow on the athletic directors' pro-
posal to allow the Conference football
champion to play the Pacific Coast
champion in the Rose Bowl each New
Year's Day?
The second question: Where was
Francis T. Schmidt, football coach
of Ohio State?
Schmidt Missing
The absence of Schmidt drew far
more comment than the fate of the
Big Ten's annual participation in the
Rose Bowl. It was generally conceded
the faculty representatives would vote
down the proposal.
It was officially reported that Min-
nesota, 1940 Conference champion,
Purdue and Wisconsin, were opposed
to the Rose Bowl tieup, with Michi-
gan, Ohio State, Indiana and Iowa
favoring it. Northwestern and Illi-
nois had not revealed their view on
the issue. Chicago, which has divorced
itself from intercollegiate football,
probably will not vote.
Outdoor Track Meet at Minn.
From the various coaches' meetings
came the announcement that the Big
Ten Outdoor Track Meet had been
awarded to Minnesota's Gophers. It
will be held May 23-24. The indoor
track meet will be held March 7-8 at
Purdue, with the conference swim-
ming meet March 7-8 at Iowa.
The Conference's annual cham-
pionship golf tournament was award-
ed to the University of Chicago which
will hold the event on its famous
Mill Road Farm, May 26 and 27.
The cross country meet went to
Purdue University, to be run next
Nov. 17.
University of Illinois announced its
annual Indoor Relay Carnival will be
held Feb. 15.

edge over his two nearest rivals for
the job, veterans Bill Cartmill and
Bill Herrman.
Should Fitzgerald's ankle prove too
serious a handicap, his place will be
taken by either of the two seniors,
both of whom are lettermen.
The rest of the lineup will be filled
by holdovers from last year's qum-
tet. Captain Herb Brogan and George
Ruehle will take care of the guard as-
signments, while tiny Mike Sofiak will
hold down the right forward berth.
Jim Grissen, another letterman, will
also see action at either forward or
guard before the game is over.
Team Still A Question
"The capabilities of the Wolverine
basketball squad was still a big ques-
tion mark in the mind of Coach Oos-
terbaan on the eve of the opener.
"I' can't tell yet just how good
they are," he remarked at the con-
clusion of practice yesterday. "All
I know is that they'll scrap. There's
plenty of fight in that gang."
Spartans Have Vets
Coach Ben Van Alstyne is expected
to start a team made up of five mem-
bers of the quintet that absorbed
33-27 and 32-27 defeats at the hands
of the Wolverines last year, buthCap-
tain Chester Aubuchon the man
around whom he had planned to
build his attack this season, will be
missing from the Spartan lineup.
Aubuchon, the team's leading 1939
scorer and one of the finest ball.
handlers the Varsity met last year,
was stricken with a severe illness dur-
ing the summer and will be lost to the
Spartans for the present campaign.
Visitors Are Tall
Despite the loss of Aubuchon, State
should prove a difficult foe for Mich-
igan's opener. The Spartans boast a
starting lineup averaging over six
feet in height and an efficient quick-
breaking offense similar to Michi-
Joe Gerard and Bob Morris are
slated to.start at the forward posts,
big Max Hindman at center, and
Bob Phillips and Mel Peterson in the
backcourt. All but Gerard have won
letters for the past two seasons.

NEW YORK, Dec. 6.-(/P)-College
football, having ruled the sports'
world for 10 weeks, bows out for 1940
tomorrow with scattgred games
through the South and Far West.
When next the crowds gather for the
bowl games it will be New Year's
Day, 1941.
Tomorrow's biggest throng-pro-
bably 80,000-will watch the annual
struggle between Notre Dame and
Southern California at Los Ange-
les, with the next largest witnessing
the Southwest Conference finale
between Rice and Southern Meth-
odist at Houston.
Notre Dame lost its last two starts
against Iowa and Northwestern, while
Southern Cal, last year's Rose Bowl
winner, never got in the Pacific Coast
race this season. Notre Dame looks
like a last-minute favorite, as a half-
dozen Southern California regulars
are reported victims of the influenza
epidemic in that section.
The Texas Longhorn, who turned
in one of the year's biggest upsets by
snapping Texas A. & M.'s long vic-
tory string last week, have made
the long trip to Gainesville to play
the University of Florida, and it is
doubtful that the 'Gators are strong
enough to stop Coach Dana Bible'4

less beat Mississippi State in the past
campaign, closes its long schedule

the measure of the Wolverines by a
7-5 score and defeated Western On-
tario 8-5. This gives promise of a
close as well as an interesting con-
Ross To Start
The Wolverines will line up with
Hank Loud in the goal and Capt.
Charley Ross and Bert Stodden at
the defense posts. Loud received his
baptism of fire last Saturday and
although the visitors pushed seven
goals past him, he turned in a much,
better than average performance.
With the first-game tension off, Hank
should show the fans that he knows,
more than a little about the gentle art
of net-minding tonight.
The Michigan starting front line
will probably be made up of Paul
Goldsmith at center with Johnny Gil-
lis and Jim Lovett holding down the
wing spots. If Kemp is in shape to
play, however, he may start at one
wing with Gillis moving over to cen-
ter and Goldsmith dropping down to
the second line.
Lineups Uncertain,
Otherwise, the second line will be
composed of Jimmy Anderson, Max
Bahrych and Gil Samuelson with
Anderson probably handling the cen-
ter job. Bob Collins, Johnny Cor-
son and Fred Heddle will make up
the third line.
Captain Ross and Bahrych will pro-
bably take the ice wearing helmets
and nose guards. The Wolverine lead-
er received a bad gash in his right
cheek in the London game and Bah-
rych suffered a broken nose in Wed-
nesday's practice session.
Two Frosh For Canadians
The Mustangs will ice a squad
made up of three seniors, one medical
student and two freshmen. The two
first year men will hold down the
goal and left wing jobs.
Don Freeborn, goalie from Chap-
leau, Ontario, came up to the Mus-
tangs from the Fort Williams Junior
team and succeeded in ousting Jack
Ward, last year's regular goalie, from
the starting position. Ward also won
the job in his first year. He travels
with the squad.
The Canadians' starting front line
will be made up of freshman Henry
Baxter, Capt. Dudley Thompson and
senior center Joe King.
On the back line, the Mustangs will

the trusty arm of Hal Ehlers, also
of Robert Owen, and who holds down

on the mythical eleven, adds power

every time he handles the pigskin.

Not OMi Sim Schedule
An air of mystery shrouds the an-
nouncement by the athletic directors
and faculty representatives of the Big
Ten that Michigan's great swimming
team has but three meets sche uled
for the coming season-no oe of
which is with Ohio State or North-
western, both perennial opponents.
Last year the Buckeyes cancelled
the second of a home and home
series with Matt Mann's champions
because "none of the three tentative
dates were acceptable." Northwestern,
on the other hand, was the chief
objector to the transfer of backstroker
Francis Heydt from the University of
Iowa to Michigan.
Neither Coach Mann nor his assist-
ant could be reached last night.
