Indian Hoopmen Have Good Chance of Keeping Title in Intercollegiate Loop

Prospects Point To Strong Team From Hanover as MacLeod, Batchelder Play

By D. DONALD Peddle

This is the first of a series of two articles dealing with the basketball prospects of the teams on Harvard's Eastern Intercollegiate League schedule.


Away off in the hills of Hanover, Coach Osborne Cowles has been rather silent about Dartmouth's enhances to defend its Eastern intercollegiate League Championship successfully, fearing that the loss of two Big Green standouts, Bob MacLeod and Joe Cottone would be too much to overcome.

But now MacLeod has reported for practice and is ready for action with his old running mate at guard Joe Batchelder. Captain Moose Dudis holds forth at the pivot post, and his six-foot six and an a half inch frame should raise havoc in league competition. The Indians miss Cottone at forward, but they still entertain hopes that he will soon report for practice. In the meantime, Gus "Swede" Broberg, the Sophomore sensation has a strangle hold on one forward job.

Vin Else, Fred Macy, George Hanna, Bob White, Ed Maiflette, Jack Horner and a host of other lesser lights are the other top ranking men on the Indians' squad. With Cottone the Greenies would be heavy favorites to retain their crown, and without him they are still the team to beat.


Down in Tigertown there is talk of a basketball revival, and the Bengals have good reason for their optimism because they have a new coach in the person of Cappy Cappon, directing an all-veteran team led by Captain Scof Scofield at forward.

Dan Carmichael seems to have won the other forward job, and Buck Jordan has the center berth. The Tigers have at least three capable and experienced guards in Eddie Hobler, Dave Lloyd, and Jack Stewart. A conservative estimate of all who saw the recent Dickinson rout is that the Tigers cannot fail to rise out of the basketball doldrums this year.


With eight lettermen and a strong Freshman contingent serving as the main cogs of his team, Coach Ken Loeffier has started intensive preparation for the opening Eli contest of the year against Lafayette, and there has been a strong feeling that this year the Blue are headed for the heights in the E. I. L.

This general feeling of optimism was cut short when it was learned that three Sophomores, Joe Zilly, Bill Thorn and Ray Anderson, would be on probation at least until January 21. The loss of Zilly hurts especially, but Coach Loeffier has a strong starting lineup ready to swing into action. He has not five good men but at least twelve. Captain Chuck Kellogg, Doug McKellar, Johnny Cobb, Tom Erickson, George Page, Al Stevens, Bob Burns, Ziggle Owen, Johnny Norton, and Larry Krleger will bear the brunt of the burden this season.
