COWAPS Tlie management of tho Central i Big Five is rapidly acquiring a j man-size schedule for the 1933-34 basketball squad. A hard schedule has already been arranged for the young men who are to shoulder the burden of carrying the Detroit col- : ors to tho top of the ladder, despte | the Job of the coaches of creating an almost’ new team. West Virginia State College is the most recent addition to the formidable array of teams which i Central will meet. West Virginia will bring to Detroit one of tin* strongest teams u tho history of tho institution. Among tho players who will make life miserable for West Virginia State College op-j pouonts wil ho Wendel Smith, for mor member f the Detroit Athletic Association five, and Clifford Van Hnrges, another Detroit high | school star. But don’t think that tho troubles 1 of the Central Big Five will Just start with the West Virginia Inva- j slon. Far from it. 81l Brook’s Chi- i cagoans, who come to Detroit Sat-1 unlay for a game with the local I five, will present to the fans one of the strongest buskcthall quints to appear on a local floor. What practically the 1932 team intact under the leadership of Captain Hilary Brown, tho Chicagoans will bring a team capable of giving tho Central live a tight tussle for honors. An then comes the Cleveland out lit, one of the strongest basketbull combinations in the middlewost. It was from tho Cleveland outfit that Jimmy Smtlh, the elongated center who is making a hit with the New York fans, came to the Hens. The euuwiiu critics who are In timated in the paat that only tho weak teams make their appearance hero can come lit and sit. in on the hack ground schedule con fronting tho local five. Every single vlsitfng team sure to he difficult for almost any team met, let alone a Centra! team that hail to be rebuilt. If several other formidable teams which the management is dickering witli can he placed on the schedule it will shape cp as the most com prehensive local schedule ever un iortaketi. Many of the local fans were surprised at the strength of I lie Central Big Five ugainst the Har lem Globe Trotters in the gatno at the Central Community Center Thanksgiving night, when the loca’. quintet succumbed to a last minute rally on the part of tho visitors and lost tho gunio, 28-27. Tho aces of the Trotters, with | the exception of George Easter, failed to live up to what had been oxpocted of them. Albert “Runt" Pullins was held to two baskets Long, the other forward, could j only get by Williams for one bask rangy center, to one basket. It was on the long distance diooting of George Easter that the Trotters wore ablo to emerge tho winners of a hard fought game. Easter haggud four baskets in tho second half, all of the long dis Saturday, Dec. 9, 1923. tance variety, to give his team the verdict. He scored two baskets in the first half. It was Long and Jaekßou who were tho spearheads in tho double pivot pluy of the visitors. But witli Solomon and Williams turning r. one of tho best games of their careers, tho play did not afford the visitors of many cliauctqi to score. in Harry Russan and ifyll Malone the local club seems to have found two forwards who will he able to locate the hoops for points through tho season. Both players handled themselves well in the game, al though neither was higli point man in scoring. Gus Finney, who with Harry Russan was a cog in the cham pionship Paul Quinn College five last winter, was the spearhead of tho Central attack. Kinney cagod four baskets and three fouls for 11 points. Houston Williams, the oth er Detroit guard, accounted for three baskets and ottu oul for seven points. Tho Globe Trotters have a good team. Pullins and Easter ure two mighty good ball handlers. So are Long and Jackson. Frazier is Just breaking nto the teom play. But the blocking of the visiting team was entirely too crude. More polish needs to he put on this de partment of the offense if the team I expects to make much progress ugHiust the while teams which they will meet through the coming months. No referee in the middle west. or far west will permit the type of blocking the Trotters dis played here. | The tight game iH fast slipping from the pedestal it once occupied with lovers of sports. The tight game has sunk to a lower level in Detroit, perhaps, than in any otliei city. There was a time when a good card in Detroit would attract a capacity crowd at any stadium or boxing arena. Today it is almost impossible to intlce a throng of more than 2,000 to see a champion ship battle. There are many reasons for th*s lack of Interest, in boxing displayed j by the fans who once clamored for admission to boxing Imuts. Some | attribute It to the failure to devc lop the local talent into box ofllce attraction. One of the best prospects to Join the professional ranks in the past several years is Thurston McKiu-! uoy, the yugster who won one j Golden Glove championship and [was denied the other only through; ranks. And with the proper ; handling the youngster will go for ward and help bring boxing to the i'oro front again. \ Howard i’lilverslty conquered tho Lincoln Lions in tho Thanks giving game Just as tho football experts had predicted the Bisons would do. But many wore of '.lie opinion that Howard would win by u largo score than 13-7. This young woman thinks very well of James Mclntosh, Judging .' front the lettur sont in to this of fice. "Northern High School can boast of having one of tho best all round athletes in the city in the person of Mr. Janies Macintosh. Macintosh entered Northern in 1931 after making an enviable re cord at Bharrord Intermediate School, receiving twelve letters for various feats. Since then he has starred in baseball, basketball and football. On tho first team Jamos was catcher for two yers. Ho was captan last year. He played center and forward on tho championship basketball team In 1932 and was given honorable mention for bril liant work on the football team. Title year the aggressive right end is considered probably tho best forwurd pass recover in the city, E. J. Powers, who has been his coach In all sports, says, "Macintosh is an exceptionally good athlete, geta an Injury sustained in a semi final bout. McKinney ie the possessr of a good punch, clever boxing ability, and aggressiveness that should carry hint far In the pugilistic along splendidly with his team mates and has a good chance to be all-city end.' "James is an excellent student and well liked by his Intructors and fellow pupils. He expects to attend the University of Michigan after leaving Northern.
