Farley Standout For State Team Holliday Heads Football At a meeting of this year's football captains Al Holliday was elected next year's manager for the Intramural Football program. The play-off game between KB and Potter was also discussed. It was decided that if at all possible the game should be played, but due to many conflicting factors no date for the game has been decided upon as yet. Rain has caused the postponement of the game and darkness and the basketball season are two of the obstacles to be overcome. THE HAGUE STUDIO W A A Cagers Form 16 Teams ;•; Special : College : Rates Manager Joe Carosella has announced that the Intramural Basketball league will begin play Monday evening, Dec. 6. All who are interested in entering teams should notify the MAA manager. There will be a meeting of all team captains and managers at 12 noon, today, to discuss rules, schedules and other regulations for the coming season. Large Entry List In this sport the largest entry list, consisting- of seventeen teams, has been made. This may perpetuate the use of a two league system to accommodate all the teams that enter the league. Potter Club, last year's champions, are out again to put in their bid for the league title.

The first contest was staged between VanDerzee Hall and Sayles Hall Annex. The State Street boys whipped right through Ontario by taking two straight, 15-4 and 15-3. The second game, which was to be played between the Angels and the Mitey Mites was forfeited. In the third encounter of the evening a Faculty team, walloped in the first game, 15-2, came back to tighten up the second game, only to lose by the score of 15-9. KB faced and downed SLS in the latt set of the evening. Both these games were very close and showed prolonged volleying. KB eked out the first, coming from behind, 1513 and had an even tougher battle in the second when they overcame a five-point disadvantage to win 18-16. More games are planned to round out the schedule for this year's league. lomorrow In rage Varsity Squad Takes A Break! • to Sophs Trip Frosh, 14-0 Playing in mud up to their knees the class of '51 pushed over a 14-0 win on the class of '52 to add to their rivalry victories. After an all day rain on Friday the 19th, Pa b e Field turned into a bucket of mtif which was a handicap to both teams. Neither team could do much on the ground and thus they took to passing, and it was the more accurate passing of the Sophs that gave them their victory. Second Half Good The game turned into a thrilling contest during the second half as the frosh tried several long passes and completed a few of them to advance deep into Gremlin territory. However, the game had its more amusing moments when runners stepped into one of the mud-traps and were grounded without being lagged by the opposition. II / MMSRTC^V V '/ / m I \?
