DETROIT CENTRAL WALLOPED BY
.JATCKSON; FINAL SCORE
STANDING 17.11
Dope was upset in the semifinals
yesterday morning when Detroit Cen-
tral was defeated by Jackson, 17 to 11.
Mitchell, the tiny forward on the Jack-
son team, won the game with four
field baskets and a foul goal, all
thrown during the second half. Mitch-
ell seemed to cover two-thirds of the
oor.
The boys from Detroit were crip-
pled by the absence during nearly all
of the game of their captain, Whit-
lock, who received an injured hip last
night. Whitlock only played the last
two minutes. Wilson was the only
Detroit man to play the entire game.
After an injury to Wilson in the third
quarter, Mitchell was allowed to score.
The game was featured by team-
work and short passing. Few long
shots were attempted. In the first
half theJackson boys failed to cover
their opponents, allowing three or four
men from Central to romp down the
floor together. This was reversed in
the second half.

"Mitch" Has Been with Michigan State

Past Two Seasons
Elmer D. Mitchell, athletic director
at the Michigan State Normal college,
has been chosen to coach the newly
organized sport of basketball next
year. He will also handle the fresh-
man squads in football and baseball.
"Mitch" entered the University in
the fall of 1908 and played on the
Varsity baseball team in 1910-11-12,
being captain of the team the latter

year. His position was center field,
though he was called into the infield
to play first base at various times.
In his sophomore and junior years,
Mitchell played on the Varsity re-
serves in 'football, playing fullback,
also being captain of the reserves.
"Mitch" has had several years of
coaching experience since leaving the
University. The summer after grad-
uating, he managed the Negaunee
baseball team in the Upper Peninsula
league. The same fall he entered the
Grand Rapids public schools as teach-
er and coach in the Union high school.
He remained there three years and
developed state championship title
contenders in football, basketball, and
baseball. His last year at Union, the
basketball team won 14 out of 15
games, defeating the best high school
teams in the state, and winning over
the Grand Rapids Y. M. C. A. team in
a post-season tilt.
In 1915 Mitchell accepted an offer
from the Michigan State Normal col-
lege of Ypsilanti, and entered that
school as assistant professor of phy-
sical education. Here he also coached
football, basketball and baseball. His
basketball teams were again very suc-
cessful, winning this year 17 out of

IS games. Two of his football te
have held the All-fresh to tie sc
in the past two years.
In the department of physical e
cation at Ypsilanti, Mitchell tau

William Henderson, center for De-
troit Northwestern, gave the state
championship to his team yesterday
afternoon when he threw eight bask-
ets against Jackson. Detroit won 24
to 21. The game was undecided from
start to finish, with the scores at the
end of the quarters as follows: First,
Detroit 2, Jackson 2; second, Detroit
10, Jackson 8; third, Detroit 16, Jack-,
son 15.
Mitchell started the scoring when
he dropped a basket for Jackson in the
first minute of play. Henderson even-
ed things for the quarter with a bask-
et. Three personal fouls were called
on Mark. Isbell and Mitchell each
shot a foul goal, neither of which were
counted because the foul line was
crossed.
Mitchell Busy Lad
Mitchell scored all of Jackson's
points in the second quarter with two
field goals and two foul goals. One
of the baskets was shot from a dif-
ficult position following a clever drib-
ble through the whole Detroit team.
Downie, Henderson, Welhoetter, and
Mark, on a long shot, each dropped in
a field goal for Northwestern in this
quarter.
In the third quarter Henderson be-
gan to find the basket. He placed two
field goals and Thompson added an-
other one to Northwestern's score.
Vedder, who threw eight out of 10
fouls in the morning, failed on two
attempts at foul goal in this quarter.
Isbell dropped two field goals and one
foul, and Meakin broke into the score
sheet with a field goal. One of Is-
bell's shots was made from beyond the
center of the court.
Henderson Busy, Too
Henderson had things his own way
in the final quarter. His policy of
hovering near the basket allowed him
to shoot four field goals. Two fouls
were thrown by Jackson, out of six
trials, Isbell and Mitchell each drop-
ping one. Meakin brought in the last
tally for Jackson.
Seventeen fouls were called on
Northwestern, of which Jackson shot
five. Four fouls were called on Jack-
son, none of which was shot.
