ELIEVE it or not, that was a bas-

Yost Field House last night . . . des-

"Ypsi gals are very fine gals . . .but
Ypsi cagers . . .well . . ."Heave away,

Hurons were doing all evening .
and sometimes they hit the back-

The Wolverine quintet reminded
the Double of the old church league
days back in junior high . . . They
pushed and shoved and plowed and
flopped . .. They did everything ex-
cept play basketball . .Midway in
the second half, the Double went
home to finish his art needlecraft
work.

play against Michigan ... That's.

Yankees Will Keep
Dahlgren On Squad
NEW YORK, Dec. 14-(P)-Ed-
ward G. Barrow, president of the'
Yankees, said today that first base-
man Babe Dahlgren will be with the
club next season, but he refused to
deny reports .that pitchers Gomez
and Monte Pearson might be trans-
ferred.
Denying local reports that Dahl-
gren was on his way out, Barrow said:
"Dahlgren is going to St. Petersburg
with the Yankees. If he cannot win
the first base job from Jack Sturm
of Kansas City, he will stick with
us as utility infielder."
Other reports current here are
that Barrow and Larry MacPhail
of the Dodgers are due to have a
conference within the next day or
two about Gomez.

Half

Jim Mandler, sensational sophomore, has relieved Coach Benny
Oosterbaan's center problem. by his steady play at the center post which
was in the hands of Capt. Jim Rae last year. He is a big husky boy
standing 6 feet 4 inches. Jim is as good in the classroom as he is on
the basketball court. He has been awarded a $500 Rackham scholar-,
ship for which he must maintain a constant 'B' average.

Cartmill, who had replaced Mandler
at center, assumed charge of the
Varsity's offensive attack, and pulled
Michigan far out in front of the Hu-
rons during the first nine minutes.
Cartmill started off the spree by
caging a shot from the foul line.
Carl Alfsen then hooped the visi-
tors' only basket of the last half, but
Sofiak matched this with an acro-
batic backward toss from under the
basket to make the score 20-14.
Fitz Tallies on Foul Shot
Fitzgerald made good on one out
of two foul shots awarded him be-
fore connecting with his pet left
hand hook shot from the bucket.
Sofiak then took a tap from Cartmill
on a jump ball to chalk up a dog
shot and a moment later dribbled
around guard Johhny Shada to score
again from under the hoop.
"Big Fitz" picked up a loose bail
and dribbled the length of the floor
for another two-pointer, whereupon
big Ed Kontrymowicz, Normal cen-
ter, caged a free throw to make the
score read 29-15. Cartmill's basket
immediately afterward practically
ended the scoring for the evening
and set the stage for the loosest dis-
play of basketball seen in the Field
House for a long time.
Wild passes and weird shooting
were rampant and fouls were commit-'
ted with reckless abandon as the ball
travelled the length of the floor and
back continually without the sem-
blance of a smoothly executed play.
Both Teams Miss Foul Shots
Referees Spurgeon and Beam saw
fit to blow the whistle for fouls 12
times during this wild orgy, but no
one seemed to be taking advantage
of the free throws that resulted.
Michigan missed nine out of ten foul
shots awarded it, while Ypsi cashed
in on only one out of five.
Joe Glasser, making his first ap-
pearance of the season after recover-
ing from a knee injury, threw in two
neat baskets during the debacle, but
no one else even came close.
The Ypsi quintet last night was
piloted by Frank Worzniak, a student
at Michigan N5ormal placed in charge
of the team by regular coach Elton
Rynearson, who was unable to be
with the Huron squad.
SUMMARIES

COLORADO SPRINGS, Dec. 14.-I
The Michigan hockey team fell a-
victim of atmospheric conditions
Friday night ars trey wvent down to
defeat before a squad of Miners from
Colorado College by a 7-3 score.
Although it is quite possible that
Eddie Lowrey's boys would have lost
in any case, it is unlikely that the
margin of victory would haveebeen
quite so large head it not been for
the fact that the rarified atmosphere
:n Colorado Springs caused the
Michigan players to tire much more
easily than they would under ordin-
ary conditions.
The game was practically even
throughout the first period, the only
goal being scored on a solo dash by
the Colorado captain, whose name
coincidentally is Charley Ross, the,
same as that of the Michigan leader.
Trailing by a 1-0 score in the sec-
ond period, the Wolverines began to
tire and the Miners found little dif-
liculty in running up a score. After

they had tallied two more goals, Max
Bahrych broke the ice for Michigan
by firing the puck past the Colorado
net-minder after taking a pass from
center Johnny Gillis.
This same combination provided
Michigan's second goal early in the
third period when Gillis banged the
disc into the twine from about 20
feet out after receiving it from Bah-
rych.
The only goal which the starting
front line tallied came late in the
final frame. Paul Goldsmith raced
down the right side of the ice and
cut in toward the goal where a pass
from sophomore wingman Bob Kemp
was awaiting for him. Goldy poured
it into the goal for the third Michi-
gan score but it wasn't enough to
give Lowrey's lads a victory. Eddie
is hoping they will reverse the pro-
2edure tonight and take the Miners
into camp for the 'first Michigan
victory of the season.

DETROIT, Dec. 14.-P)-Michi-
gan's Two-Man Gang of football,
Tom Harmon and Forest Evashev-
sk'i, today ran up against a barrier
tougher than anything they'd seen
on the gridiron and felt grateful for
help.
Tom and Evy, who are cashing in
a bit on their football reputations,
appeared in a downtown department
store this afternoon with their pres-
ence advertised in advance to the
public.
The public-to a great extent
eager urchins anxious to glimpse
their heroes-came in great force.
Anything less than an old flying
wedge-illegal these many years in
football-never would have broken
Harmon and Evashevski loose.
Admirers crowded around, wild for
autographs or to get within touch-
ing distance of the Wolverine pair.
Business inthe department stopped.

Harmon and Evashevski perspired in
the crush,
When time came to depart, there
wasn't a hole in sight for a first
class footballer to get through. Nor
was there any inclination on the part
of the crowd to give way.
Finally a desperate store execu-
tive, disheveled and disconcerted,
struggled onto a table top and shout-
ed a plea. e
That's all," he cried. "The boys
have to leave now."
Some muscular employes set up a
formation in front of Harmon and
Evashevski and, by dint of some per-
suasive blocking, cleared a path for
the gridders.
"That was some tussle," said Tom,
dropping into a chair later. "It was
almost like the crowd that mobbed
-me after the Ohio State game."
Harmon estimated that within the
last two weeks he had had an income
of about $1,200 from various ap-
pearances. But he said it wasn't all
profit.
In answer to requests, he said, he
mailed out 150 pictures of himself
last week alone. He said that cost
about $150. There was postage, too.
"I try to answer every piece of mail
I receive," he said.
Thus the hiring of a secretary,.
whom he pays 50 cents an hour and
finds "It's worth it. Otherwise I
couldn't answer my mail."
Harmon still has engagements
which will take him to Philadelphia
to get the Maxwell Trophy, to Los
Angeles for a radio program with
Bing Crosby, to San Francisco for
the East-West game, to Washington,
D.C., for the Walter Camp Trophy,
and to Minneapolis for a football
banquet honoring Harmon's running
mate on the All-American team,
Halfback George Franck of the Go-
phers.
"I'll be glad to get. back to the
routine of school work," Tom said.

I
EAST LANSING, Dec. 14.-(A)-
Jack R. Amon, of Grand Rapids, a
