COURT SQUAD CUT TO 20 FOR TUESDAY M.I.T. GAME

FRESHMAN FIVE FACES TILTON ON SATURDAY

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Coach Wachter has cut the University basketball squad to 20 players in preparation for the game with M. I. T. on Tuesday, January 12.

The squad as it now stands contains the following names: J. W. Baldwin '28, J. N. Barbee '28, W. Van A. Coombs '27, Kenneth Dorn '27, S. L. Eaton '27, A. F. Eby '28, John Elberfeld '26, M. M. Green '28, M. W. Hatch '27, H. R. Jones '26, C. T. Lane '26, J. D. Leekley '27, J. S. Malick '27, Richard Meisenbach '28, J. R. McCurdy '28, R. M. Oothout '28, C. J. Rauh '26, A. W. Slocum '28, Captain W. T. Smith '26, and H. D. Stone '28.

As no practice was held during the Christmas vacation, much of the December training must be repeated. The early part of this week has been spent in reconditioning. Passing, pivoting, dribbling and all the fundamentals of the court game have been stressed in order that the men will not forget that they are absolutely requisite.

Scrimmage With Law Five

During the nest of the week Coach Wachter has planned a stiff scrimmage every day. Tomorrow or Saturday a Law School five led by Frank Drohan, last years Freshman coach, and former All-American center, will clash with the University team. Several scrimmages have already been held with the Law School combination, and close scores have resulted.

The team was on edge before vacation, which fact was demonstrated by the manner in which the powerful Dartmouth five was trounced 36-22. An effort will be made to get the men back to this pitch before the M. I. T. game. It is hoped that the ice victory of a few weeks ago will be repeated on the basketball floor.

Jones in Game Again

H. R. Jones '26, who received a fractured rib the night before the Dartmouth game, has resumed practice, and will be able to answer the initial whistle when the team faces M. I. T.

The Freshman five has been practicing this week, and is rounding out a well polished attack for their opening game with Tilton on Saturday. Tilton has always proved a formidable opponent for the first year men. Last year the Freshman team won by the narrow margin of 37-30, so a close match is expected on Saturday.
