the Spartans' prolonged scoring

The second half found the East
Lansing team an even sadder specta-

basket and connected only once,
missed eight out of ten foul shots, and
put on a ragged exhibition of ball

THE USUALLY JOVIAL Matt Mann isn't so happy these days. ern Conference threw a solid "block"
He returred from the Conference meeting yesterday with the news today against any football games af-
that his natatorial wonder boys, undoubtedly the strongest swimming team ter its regular season-of Rose Bowl

But then Mike went on: "But not this year, Matt. Not after what you

me of buying my boys. They do anything just to get out of swimming the
Then he twinkled. "But you really can't blame them. What's the
use of taking a beating when you don't have to."
That's just the point. These teams don't have to meet Michigan, and
that precisely is where the problem lies. Under the present Big Ten rules,
the coaches are left alone to draw up schedules in such sports as football,
track, swimming, wrestling and tennis.
For a long time, the Conference has realized that only football can get
along under a system such as that. The weak sisters don't mind tangling
with the big shots on the gridiron. They can make more money that way.
But in the other sports, it just doesn't work. The weak sisters find it
too easy to avoid the powerful squads. They have nothing to gain by meet-
ing them and everything to lose.
Several years ago, basketball and baseball schedules were drawn up
by the coaches. The same difficulties arose, and soon the games were de-
cided on directly in Major Griffith's office.
Why, then, can't the Big Ten handle such sports as swimming in the
same way? Let the Major draw up the schedules. It's the only way to
After all, no use having a Conference if you can't meet its members.

both Rose Bowl and charity games.
There was only brief discussion be-
fore a decision on the proposal for
the Western Conference to join with
the Pacific Coast Conference in mak-
ing the annual Rose Bowl game a
closed affair between the twoacol-
legiate organizations. Ten faculty
representatives attended the meeting,
but the representative of Chicago,
which abolished football a year ago,
did not ballot.
There was some speculation on the
possibility of the Rose Bowl question
bobbing up again in the future. Min-
nesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, North-
western and Purdue long had been
opposed to the plan, but there had
been some support for the idea at
other conference schools. Prof. F. E.
Richart of Illinois, Committee Secre-
tary, indicated that realization that
the plan could not win approval had
prompted opponents to make the de-
ciding ballot a unanimous one.
The committee also ruled that John
Petty, star Purdue fullback, Pete
Timpermann, Purdue lineman, and
Helge Pukema, star Minnesota guard,
would be eligible for another year of

ended up in the penalty box. Gillis
and Kaminsky joined them again
directly, and the ice was deserted
once more. Ross got back in time to
score his second, also on a pass from
Lovett, but then it was too late.
The first period gave a preview
of what was coming, but only a pre-
view. Nobody succeeded in denting
the nets, but everybody had a fair
chance. Hank Loud gets the glory
