Fourth Company, First Company, and N Company all have a mathematical chance of winning one of the two crowns. The football finalists have already been decided—Fourth Com pany meeting First Company Wed nesday at 4:10 for the title; how ever, the basketball situation is still of a complex nature. The win ner of the First Company-N Com pany tussle will gain the right to play Fourth Company in the final round of play. Fourth Company, L Company, First Company, and N Company, won top honors in basketball Lea gues A, B, C, and D respectively. That immediately put each of these teams into the semi-finals for the school championship. Of the two games scheduled in the semi-final round of play, one ha salready made history, while the remaining match is set for one day this week. In the only game played, Fourth Company defeated L Company 17 to 14 in a close, hard-fought battle. Brunow looped 6 points through the mesh to take high-point honors for the day. This victory entitled Fourth Company to gain the final round of play, one has already Company from the race. Winners in the various football leagues were: Third Company— League A; Fourth Company—Lea gue B; K Company—League C; and First Company—League D. In the semi-final round of play in football. Fourth Company squared off against Third Company and First Company met K Company. These two encounters were thrill ing games in themselves. In the former, Fourth Company capital ized on some breaks early in the game to take the lead 7 to 0, which they never relinquished. In the other fray, First Company’s well- drilled “nine” had little trouble in disposing of K Company, 9 to 0. Three of the points were the result o fa field goal fro mthe toe of J. R. Wade. Play in these two sports will wind up this week, weather per mitting. Starting Wednesd a y, December 15, play will begin in a sport relatively new to most Ag gies—Intramural Speedball. This sport could best be described as a cross between football and basket ball. It takes quite a bit of speed and endurance to play the game appropriately, and it is one of the best sports offered in intramural competition. The schedule of games should reach each Athletic Officer sometime today, as Intramural Speedball will get under way to morrow. %ACH£RS OF JAPANESE IN COLLEGES AND UNI VERSITIES THROUGHOUT THE U.S.MET RECENTLY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MICH IGAN TO COMPARE NC ES ON LATEST METHODS AMD TECHNIQUES.
