HOOPSTERS TO END EXAM LAYOFF WITH TUFTS ENCOUNTER

Crimson on Short End of Odds Again As Visitors Start Four of Last Year's Regulars

By John C. Robbins

The second lap of the basketball season opens tomorow night when the Crimson quintet, after a two and a half week examination period "vacation," takes on a veteran Tufts aggregation in the Indoor Athletic Building at 8:30 o'clock.

Coach Wes Fesler has hopes of tripping up the Jumbos, but the Crimson will be on the short end of the odds again. Captain Charley Lutz and Bill Webber will play the forwards and Ed Rothschild will be in there at center, but one guard position is still uncertain.

Ed Buckley is pretty sure to start at one with either Bud Finegan, who is still hampered by the ankle injury he suffered in the Columbia encounter, or Bob James at the other. Sam White is certain to see a good deal of action tomorrow night at either center or guard.

Long Layoff

The team hasn't played since the night of January 13, when it lost to Dartmouth by a 51 to 33 score, but Fesler has been holding short daily practices of an hour or so each all during the lay-off, and the lack of practice ought not to be too great a handicap. The hoopsters have looked fast and ready for action in three hard scrimmages.

But the Juniors, who defeated Harvard 44 to 29 last year, will be a tough assignment. Four of the five players who started against the Crimson last year will be back again tomorrow, and the fifth player also got into that game.

Tibbs Stands Out

Spectators tomorrow night will be watching one of New England's greatest centers in Charley Tibbs, six foot two standout. Fred Jenkins, another outstanding star, and Phil Varney will be at forward, with Phil Gomez and Henry Pecheux pairing at the guards. All except Gomez are seniors, and the whole team has a reputation as ball handlers and excellent shots.

Tufts has had a great year so far including a 42 to 29 victory over Brown.
