Badgers Play Against Northwestern
Not Indication of Cardinals'
Real Strength
Michigan's basketball team will play
its first Conference game on Satur-
day evening, when it will oppose Wis-
consin on the Waterman gymnasium
floor. For the Badgers it will be their
second Big Ten contest. Wisconsin
will come to Ann Arbor with one de-
feat against its record and will en-
deavor to avenge the one point vic-
tory which Northwestern scored ove:
it last Monday night.
Badgers Fast
Wisconsin is by no means a weak
team. The breaks in the game against
Northwestern were all against the
Badgers. Her forwards had many
more shots for the basket than did
her opponents but were not able to
hit the cage. Neither of the teams
could score the needed points from
the foul line. In Williams, Wiscon-
sin has an exceptionally fast guard.
This man covers the floor and takes
care of his man in masterly fashion.
Fanning at center is another power-
ful player. The whole team is made
up of good passers who also know how
to dribble. With even breaks, the
Badgers would prove strong adver-
saries for any team in the Confer-
Coach Mather's men have all sur-
vived their Southern trip in good
shape. After four days of rest fol-
lowing a strenuous week, the squad
once again reported for a stiff work-
out last evening. The coach spentthe
evening in ironing out a few rough
spots made apparent on the trip. All
in all he was well satisfied with the
showing that the team made while
South. The competition that the
squad encountered in the Southern
cities was much harder than is gen-
erally thought. In several games the
team came up from behind in the
second half and put the contest away
in the last few minutes of play.
Illinois Loses
Illinois has had hard sledding in
the three games played thus far, win-
ning one and losing the other two.
The Indians lost to Milliken and to
Nebraska. The defeat at Nebraska's
hads was evened up Tuesday evening
when the Indians grabbed a fast
game from the Cornhuskers by a 26
to 24 score. Illinois will have a
chane to improve by the time that
their first Conference game takes
plae on the 15th of Jnuary.
Purdue dropped a lpse game to
3grihamt college last Tuesday when
shp lost to the Rihmond institution
S poun pf 24 to 22. The garxe was
closely contested by both teams. Pur-
due was generally conceded the Con-
ference title last season, though not
ranking highest in the Conference
percentage standings. The defeat
may be partially explained by the fact
t t the foleerakeirs had played a
number qf fast gams in the preced-
ing week and the team was worn out.
Fire seriously damaged the large
roogming hpgse at 80 @. State street
early Tuesday morning. Though the
blaze was confined to the attic, al-

most every upstairs room was dam-
aged by water, and the entire house
must be redecorated.
All of the 24 students, several of
whom were deprived of their rooms,
will continue to live in the house.
The building, originally occupied b '
the Phi Delta Phi fraternity, and
later by the Newark club, is known
as the Castle. The damage of several
thousand dollars is covered by insur-

La Fayette, Ind ., Jan. 5.-With the
opening game of the 1921 basketball
schedule just two days off, Coach
"Piggy" Lambert has been pushing
the Purdue basketeers forward at a
fast pace before the Boilermaker
quintet opens its Conference sched-
ule with Northwestern here.
Things are not looking as bright
in the Boilermaker camp as last
year, and with only two veterans back,
Coach Lambert faces a tough task in
building up a first class five. Of the
last year's quintet, which was ac-
claimed the best in the Conference,
only Captain White and Miller are out
for the five, three of that team hav-
ing graduated.
Last year Captain White ranked
second to Carney as the leading point
getter in the Conference, and this year
White has his same basket eye again.
White is a junior and will no doubt
rank as one of the stellar players in
the Conference, as in his first year of
Conference basketball he annexe
place on the All-Conference five. In
Ray Miller, another junior, Purdue
has without a doubt the best back
guard in the Conference. Crisler of
Chicago was placed on the mythical
five last year at backguard, but most
critics ranked the sturdy Boilermak-
er ahead of Crisler. Around Miller
and White, Coach Lambert is build-
ing his quintet,
At the forward positions, Haigis,
Eversman, Holwerda, Masters, Wag-
ner, Young and Leverenz have been
doing good work and there appears te
be little choice in which nen to play.
Haigis and Wagner were substitute
forwards last year, while the other
men are all sophomores. The cen-
ter position is the sore spot of the
Boilermaker five. With the gradua-
tion of Campbell there was not r
man to take his place and Lambert
has had to change slightly his style
of play beause of the fact that there
was not a first class center on the
squad. Chaffee and Treat are the
logical men for the center position at
this time, but if Kriegbaum can
overcome a scholastic difficulty, h
will no doubt take the pivot posi-
The placing of Captain White
floor guard removes all uncertainty
about that position and Miller will h(
seen at his old position at back-
guard. Besides these old men there
are a number of good men put for
the guard positions. Coiling, a letter
man and ex-captain, has been used at
backguard and is a consistent per-
former at that station. Carman and
Kennedy are other men who are ca-
pable of handling the backguards' po-I
sition. Little attention has been paid
to the floor guard's job due to the
placing of Captain White at that po-
sition, but in case of necessity Coach
Lambert has good men in Wagner and
Holwerda to shoot Into that position.
The scrimmages with the Fresh
man Varsity have been last and hard
fought. This year's yearling squad is
the best that has been seen here for
a number of years and the Varsity has
some difficulty in holding the edge
over the first year men. Most of the
Varsity men are hitting the basket in
good shape. The floor work has been
good; The accurte passing which
characterized the team last year has
again been seen and this phase of the
work has been improving daily. The
Boilermaker schedule calling for
games with Northwestern, Illinois,
Michigan, Ohio State, Iowa and Indi-
ana will no doubt prove to be a tough

one, but the Boilermakers are work-
ing hard and should be able to give
a good account of themselves in the
Conference basketball race for 1920-

Sidelights on
Vacation Sports
(By Bob Angell)
Coach Andy Smith's California
Bruins gave Ohio State in particular
and Middle Western football in gen-
eral a pretty severe jolt when they
downed Wilce's team 28 to 0 New
Year's day. We of this vicinity had
come to regard the Buckeyes as a
team which could hold its own against
any in the country, but we were dis-
illusioned with a vengeance. There
was no fluke about the defeat either,
one of the Ohio coaches admitting
that the Columbus eleven was out-
played at its own game.
America has added another world
championship to its already formid-
able list during the past week. Wil-
liam T. Tilden, 11, and William M.
Johnston were the responsible par-
ties this time. The Davis cup, the
symbol of the tennis title of the
world, is on its way back to Amer-
ica from Australia. The Americans
demonstrated their superiority over
their opponents, Patterson and
Brookes, in no uncertain terms, win-
ning all five matches. In no single
match did the losers win more than
one set. The Davis cup matches this
year will probably be held sometime
in the late summer or early fall at
the West Side club, Forest Hills, L.
I. Preliminary elimination matehes
between countries will be arranged
previous to that time.
England's cross country team, com-
posed of men from Oxford and Cam-
bridge, defeated the invading Amer-
ican champions, Cornell, 26 to 29, in
a dual meet run over the Roehamp-
ton courso last week. The race was
exceedingly close and the time was
within half a minute of the record
for the seven and a half mile course.
Coach Mather is to be congratulat-
ed on the showing made by his bas-
ketball team on its Southern trip.
However, there is no occasion for ex
ceeding optimism, for it must be re-
membered that several other Confer-
ence schools are t be represented by
sterling quintets this season. More-
over, Michigan- learned a lesson a
year ago last fall which it won't soon
forget concerning the injuriousness
of overeonfidence.
The houses holding the first 10
places in the fraternity athletic stand-
ings are the following: Zeta Psi,
285; Phi Delta Theta, 280; Delta Up-
silon, 272; Alpha Delta Phi, 268; Kap-
pa Beta Psi, 263; Phi Sigma Kappa,
260; Delta Chi, 252; Sigma Nu, 245;
Theta Chi, 235; Delta Tau Delta, 238.
The silver cup which will be pre-
sented to the fraternity having the
highest athletic standing at the end
of the year will be a permanent ac-

Another dual meet has made Its ap-
pearance on the schedule of the Wol-
verine tank squad. The University of
Pittsburgh, boasting one of the fastest
teams in the East, will be Michigan's
opponent at the Smokey City on Sat-
urday, Feb. 26. The contest will fol-
low close on the heels of the event
with the Cleveland Y. M. C. A. which
takes place at Cleveland on the even-
ing, preceding.
Whether or not the informal team
representing the Maize and Blue can
defeat the crack varsity squad of the
Pitt school is a question. Pitts-
burgh's record in years past has been
enviable and this year they present a
formidable aggregation. Win or lose
a good chance to compare Michigan's
chances with Eastern institutions is
available as the Panthers will meet
both Johns Hopkins and the Navy
who, In turn, number other teams

Unless the Wolverines enter the
state meet at the Detroit Athletic
club early this month the schedule
will open on the 29th with M. A. C. as
Michigan's opponent. Swimming has

sity sport at the Lansing school and
results of the meet will be awaited
with interest by followers, of the

tice during the next few weeks and
Coach Drulard intends to make sev-
eral cuts in the squad. Men who
have heretofore considered their po-
sitions secure will have to fight hard
to retain them for some of the newer
tryouts are showing up in great style.
Schwartz, Yerkes and Ullmann in par-
ticular have done good work.
