field of sports. Plans are now der way for the organization ### a baseball team in the Spring with the possibilities of a track and field squad also entering intercollegiate competition.

The basketball team, which already has a court schedule of ten games, met the St. John’s freshman five last night at the latter’s floor. Manhattan, Long Island University, City College, and St. Francis are on the strenuous program for the Yeshiva quintet. John E. Mitchell, former Springfield College athlete, has been appointed head coach of the basketball squad. Mitchell was the former court mentor of the Stevens Tech team in Hoboken, N. J. He is not Jewish.

The Yeshiva five, managed by Moses I. Feuerstein, of Brooklyn, is composed of Levy and Aronoff, forwards, Muss and Koshar, guards, and Krieger, center. The squad practices daily on its own floor in the Yeshiva gymnasium.

Yeshiva faces the City College junior varsity tomorrow night at the Lavender gymnasium. The game will start at eight o’clock.
