Cage Berths
Michigan's basketball team com-
pleted its embryonic period yester-
day, when Coach Ozzie Cowles,
working with five-man units for the
first time, formed two units.
The two squads, selected from
the nineteen men who appear to
be the leading candidates, included
lettermen Bob Harrison, Marty
Feinberg, Bob Baker and Gordon
Harrison, a starting forward last
season, worked at guard on a unit
which had Mack Suprunowicz and
Boyd McCaslin at the forwards, Bill
Roberts, a 6'-6" center, at the pivot,
and Bill McKulich, the tennis team
captain,* at the other guard post.
Cowles rotated seven men on the
number two unit. He started with
a combination of einberg' and
Gordon Reynolds at guards, Rosen-
crans at center, with Gerrit Wier-
da and Baker at the forwards.
Later Cowles inserted Bill Bauerle
and Bob Shemke at forwards.
The other leading candidates on
the squad, which still numbers near-
ly 75, are Charlie Ketterer, Joe Stot-
tlebower, Harvey Morrill, Doug
Beath, Don McIntosh, Don Otto and
Jim Deremo. )

For the first time members of the
Michigan sailing Club will attend
the Shell Trophy Regatta Sunday and

Thirty-seven colleges have been in-
vited to attend the big regatta being
sponsored by the Inter-collegiate
Yacht Racing Association. This .will
be the tenth season the Shell Trophy
races have been conducted on the
MIT course through the Charles Riv-
Durin the war, the distance was
too grea for the Michigan team to
attend. However, Frank Fruehauf,
one of the Club members making the
trip to Boston, expressed the desire
of the team to make a good showing
at their first Shell Trophy Regatta.

Despite his poorest showing of the campaign against Minnesota
last week, the versatile Toledo tailback managed to maintain his lead
in the pass completion department with a .588 average. Dick Good,
Illinois halfback, set the Conference record in 1940 with a .544 average.

Chappuis has connected 20 times
in 34 tries over a five game route,
while Good's record was compiled
in six games.1
In addition to this, Chappuis has
enough ground yards to hold a 19
yard advantage in total offense over
Bob DeMoss of Purdue. DeMoss
moved into a second place position
in the Conferene with his barrage
of completions last Saturday after-
noon. He completed 11 tosses for 'a
total of 262 yards, which is the high-

Army Tops AP
Poll; Irish Are
Second Again
Michigai Raised
To. Eleventh Spot
NEW YORK, Nov. 5-(M-It may
or may not be the last time they are
so honored, the events of next Sat-
urday determining the future status,
but the Army Cadets are the No. 1
football team of the nation in the
opinion of a majority of the experts
taking part in the weekly Associated
Press poll.
Army Still First
Army, despite a more or less drab
showing abainst West Virginia last
Saturday, retained a comfortable
margin over the second-place Notre
Dame team, which likewise was not
too impressive in its game with Navy.
It generally vas conceded, though,
that both the Cadets and the Irish
played their games under extenuat-
ing circumstances, with their eyes on
their titanic clash at Yankee Stadi-
um this week.
Army polled 64 first place votes
and amassed a total of 1,176 points.
Notre Dame was picked No. 1 on 51
ballots and registered 1,140 points.
Last week the Cadets were No. 1 on
104 ballots while 61 experts ranked
the Irish on top.
Penn Skids
Penn,.as expected as a result of its
upset at the hands of Princeton,
skidded from third place a week ago
to ninth, with unbeaten Georgia
jumping from No. 5 to fill Penn's
vacated third position.

.Harris Does A
About Face; To
Manage Yanks
Dressen To Be Coaclh;
Bucky Gets $35,000
NEW YORK, Nov. 5--A'P)-Stanley
(Bucky) Harris succumbed to Presi-
dent Larry MacPhail's financial bait
today and signed a two-year contract
to manage the New York Yankees at
a reported $35,000 yearly salary with
Chuck Dressen, late of Brooklyn, as
his head coach.
Thus the "boy wonder" of 1924
who won a first pennant and
World .Series for Washington in
his initial year as a skipper apolo-
getically did a complete about face
from his earlier announced posi-
in becoming a field manager."
When MacPhail signed Bucky
September 10 as an administrative
assistant, he said Harris could "in
no wise be considered either a man-
ager or prospective manager."
Larry reserved . the right to
change his mind and stated today
he was satisfied he had "the best
man for the job." Although he in-
sisted the choice had not been
made until a few days ago, the
story had leaked out and was com-
mon knowledge at the time of the
official release.
As Harris recently had said he
might be induced to change his mind
by the bulging Yankee cash box, it
was obvious that a healthy pay boost
had induced the veteran skipper to
turn from the executive field again
don a uniform.
Harris became the fourth Yank
manager within a year. Joe Mc-
Carthy, whom MacPhail inherited
when he, Del Webb and Dan Topping
bought the club, "resigned" May 24
because of poor health.

In preparation for one of the
toughest college hockey schedules he

In Six Round T K 0
LONDON, Nov. 5-UP)-American
heavyweight Joe Baksi, slashing with
both hands, won a technical knock-
out at the end of six rounds tonight
over British Light Heavyweight
champion Freddie Mills.
Mills was bleeding badly from both
eyes when his seconds pitched in the
sponge after six stanzas of the sched-
uled ten round bout.
At the end of the fight, Baksi,
whose face was unscarred, was as cool
as when he started.
A sellout crowd of 10,700 witnessed

ringay Arena.

With the opening of the season

I-M Agenda
Leaning off with two touch foot-
ball leagues, the Intramural athletic
department has scheduled a full fall
and winter program for all indepen-
dent men on campus.
,.While the Lawyers Club and the
Robert Owens Co-op are battling for
the League I football championship,
the 'faculty volleyball campaign is
just getting into full swing. The
chemistry, engineering, army, law,
and aero engineering departments
have closed their books long enough
to enter into athletic competition.
Although the chemistry squad was
leading the league with five wins and
one loss, the fighting Engineers
copped four out of six contests with
the chemists yesterday to close up the
wide gap.
In the fraternity speedball race
Kappa Sigma downed Delta Tau Del-
ta, 16-8, and earned the right to ad-
vance to the semi-final round with
Phi Delta Theta who trimmed Theta
Chi, 11-5, yesterday at Ferry Field.

There are shocking new facts in today's Saturday Evening
Post about the subsidization of college football players. Gridiron
authority Francis Wallace reveals the details of several recent
cases-including the much publicized Shorty McWilliams affair-
in which players were offered (or asked for) prices that run into
five figures. Names are named and prices quoted in this outspoken
article. In addition, Mr. Wallace proposes a practical, realistic
method of checking the "wild excesses" which, he says, are
threatening to ruin college football. Get your copy of The
Saturday Evening Post at your newsstand today!
