Tomorrow

Even though the opening of the
1948 baseball season is still about
three months away, practice of
this year's Michigan diamond
team has already begun in Yost
Field House.
Under the watchful eyes of Wol-
verine coach Ray Fisher, around
30 battery aspirants have been
working out in the Field House.
This period, ending with the start
of regular practice around March
1, was termed by Fisher as very
valuable and that a lot could be
done with the hurlers during this
time.
The nine lost two letterwin-
ning pitchers by graduation at
the end of the 1947 season, in-
eluding their captain and num-
ber one pitcher, Cliff Wise.
Returning 'M' hurlers who are

now working out, include "Bud"
Rankin, who was right behind
Wise last year, and Bob Fancett,
with a fiery fast ball. Bob Hicks,
another of last year's pitchers is
also working out in preparation
for the coming season.
On the catching end of the
battery, Fisher has two mem-
bers of last season's team now
working out. They are Hal Ray-
mond who served as number
two receiver last year, and Walt
Hancock.
Neither Bob Chappuis, who has
been expected to assume the bulk
of the Wolverine catching burden
this coming season, nor John Kul-
pinski last year's starter have
come out as yet.

NCAA Moves
To Establish
'Sanity Code'
Committee To Vote
On Code Tomorrow
NEW YORK, Jan. 8-(IP)-
Moving ahead in its first attempt
to become a regulatory body, the
National Collegiate Athletic As-
sociation today set up machinery
for enforcement of the so-called
"Sanity Code" which comes to a
vote in the concluding session of
the NCAA convention here Sat-
urday.
The enforcement machinery,
governing the conduct of member
institutions, took the form of ex-
ecutive regulations passed by the
executive committee 48 hours be-
fore the liberalized version of the
code was to be presented as a pro-
posed amendment to the NCAA
constitution.
Code Liberalized
The code itself, approved in
principle a year ago but liberalized
in preparation for final presenta-
tion, was , discussed at length,,
meanwhile, by the executive group
and the Constitutional Revision
,Committee which will carry it to
the convention floor in Saturday's
business meeting.
Termed one of the most im-
portant documents in NCAA his-
tory, the code not only sets forth
rules governing athletic scholar-
ships and recruiting but estab-
lishes regulatory practices on a
national scale.
As originally approved, the code
outlawed alloff-campus recruit-
ing of athletes as well as subsi-
dization. It has been toned down,
however, to permit school officials
to talk shop with prospective ath-
letes, in any locale as long as no
financial benefits are offered be-
yond those available to any stu-
dent.
Need Two-Thirds Vote
Today's actionmeans that if the
association writes the code into
its constitution by the necessary
two-thirds vote, the enforcement
machinery which it calls for will
be ready to begin operation.
Actually, the executive group
provided for the formation of two
committees which will be respon-
sible for the enforcement of the
code if and when it is adopted.1
Tile first of these will be the
Constitutional Compliance Com-
mittee, whose three members are
to be selected by the nominating
committee and elected for three
years by the NCAA at its conven-
tion.

"Our boys have not yet dis-
played their best playing form,"
asserted Coach Ozzie Cowles, who
sends his Michigan quintet into
its Big Nine opener against Min-
nesota tomorrow evening at Yost
Field House.
The Wolverines, victors in
four of the seven warm-ups to
date, have not progressed as
smoothly this season as they did
at the 'same comparative date2
last year, according to the Maize
and Blue cage mentor.
Inasmuch as Cowles has the
same material on hand for the
1948 hoop wars, many Michigan
supporters hope the team will
"snap out of it" tomorrow night by
clicking as a successful unit.
Sideline observers expect
guard Pete Elliott, regarded as
one of the finest defensemen in
the Conference last year, to sup-
ply the "shot in the arm" need-
ed for the team.
Elliott, a fiery competitior, ap-
peared in the Michigan line-up for
the first time last Saturday night,
and helped his mates scoreyan up-
set victory over a strong Toledo
quintet. A second-string quarter-
back on the varsity eleven, he was
flown back to Michigan immedi-
ately after the Rose Bowl.
"Pete's absende in our first six
games hurt us a lot," declared
Cowles. "But he's been rapidly
whipping into shape."
The Wolverine coach singled out
the season's outstanding player as
center Bill Roberts. The tall Mich-
igan star, who canned 16 points
in his last performance, will have
his toughest assignment of the
season Saturday when he is called
upon to stop Minnesota's string-
bean pivot man, Jim McIntyre, a
most prolific scorer.
A staunch defense, always a
forte in Cowles' basketball
schooling, has not been operat-
ing too efficiently in the seven
pre-Conference tussles. As a re-
sult, the Wolverines have been
spending considerable time this
week in ironing out defensive
flaws.
Coach Cowles says he is satis-
fied with the team's shooting to
date. The Wolverines have aver-
aged more than 54 points per
game, ringing up a season high of
78 against Marquette.

Walcott-Louis
Still Undecided
WATERBURY, Conn., Jan. 8-
(AP)-Jersey Joe Walcott, who is
expected to meet Heavyweight
Champion Joe Louis in a return
bout, June 23, said here tonight he
hasn't signed for the contest and
wouldn't unless he received 30 per
cent of the gate. Walcott refereed
several bouts tonight on a semi-
pro boxing card at the State Ar-
mory.
"When I signed for the last
bout," said the No. 1 challenger,
"I agreed to give Louis a return
bout if I won and the terms were
to be 30 per cent for Louis and 30
per cent for me. Louis won a dis-
puted decision and now they want
to give me 20 per cent of the gate.
I don't believe that is fair."
Walcott said the 20th Century
Club made all their arrangements
in the newspapers on their offer
to him, but hadn't contacted his
manager until yesterday.
"My handlers have agreed not
to make a decision until we have
another conference with promoter
Herman Taylor of Philadelphia
Jan. 16," he said.
