CONFERENCE COURT
OPENS TONIGHT

Wisconsin Faces Michigan in
Contest, at Waterman
Gymnasium

CrucialI

BADGERS SLIGHT FAVORITES
DESPITE DEFEAT BY PURPLE
Michigan opehs her 1921 basketball
season at 7:30 o'clock tonight, Wis-
consin furnishing the opposition. With
a successful preliminary trip and
contests out of the way, eight vic-
tories having been scored over strong
Michigan and Southerp quintets, the
Wolverine court prospects look better
than last year.
Lineup Ready
From Miller, Whitlock, and Captain
Karpus, Mather will pick his two for-
wards, and he has practically decided
on Weiss for center and Rea and Wil-
liams for guards. "Duke" Dunne is
not yet in. condition to get into the
game.
Having defeated the strong Mar-
quette college team of Milwaukee
which on a Southern journey beat the
Ramblers of Louisville and Vander-
bilt University by more decisive scores
than did Michigan, Wisconsin comes
to Ann Arbor with a slight edge of
the dope despite the fact that they
play on a foreign floor. The Badgers
are stilr considered a formidable five
even after their defeat by Northwest-
ern, and the sport critics count them
as serious contenders for Big Ten
honors.
Badgers Strong
With Weston and Knapp, star play-
ers, on the injured list in the North-
western contest, it is doubtful if these
two compete here tonight, but in Wil-
liams and Caesar at guards, Fogner
and Fanning, centers, and Taylor and
Williams for forwards Coach Mean-
well has a combination which Mather
believes will be difficult to beat. The
Badger mentor's known ability for
turning out victorious quintets makes
the Michigan team expect a hard bat-
tle.
For 45, minutes last night Coach
Mather sent his men through a light
workout. The scrimmage of a half
hour Thursday night was thought by
the coach to be sufficient, and hie lim-
ited the last drill to caging baskets
and shooting free throws, pivoting
spinning, and other fundamentals
The eligibility of the men was also
passed upon.
Win Needed
Considering a victory ini this con
test essential to keeping up the mor
ale of the team and the students
Coach Mather impressed upon his mer
the necessity, of Finning the first Con
ference battle. From all appearance
the present squad is a stronger on
than that of last season, which scorei
one victory over the Badgers afte
losing the first game.
Coming directly from Madison wit:
no other games on this trip Wiscon
sin's five will be in good conditior
The Badgers were expected in lat
last night or early this morning
Hedges of Iowa will be the refere
and MacCulloch of Springfield Train
ing school will act as umpire.

Hoppe Exhibits
Billiard Skill'
Billiard enthusiasts at Michigan
have a great treat in store with the
coming of Willie Hoppe and Charles:
Peterson to the Union for exhibition
matches on the afternoon and evening
of Jan. 18. The billiard committee of
the Union has attracted champions to
Ann Arbor and the student body will
have an opportunity to witness in ac-
tion the two greatest cut artists now
living.
Willie Hoppe, the world's balk line
champion, needs no introduction. He
is the greatest champion of his sport
that has ever lived and has held his
title longer than any other man has
held a title in any other sport. For
16 years he has been the undisputed
master of the game. His record is
nothing less than phenomenal.
Charles Peterson, Hoppe's touring
partner, holds the world's fancy shot;
championship. In his chosen line he
is just as great as Hoppe. The fan-
cy shots which this artist makes, his
artistry with the balls, touch upon
the uncanny. In both afternoon and
evening Peterson will play an exhibi-
tion match with Hoppe, in addition to
which he will also give his fancy shot
exhibition. He is a billiard authority
and lecturer as well as a cue expert.
To accommodate the numbers who
will be anxious to witness the two ex-
hibitions the games will be held in the
Union reading room, directly across
from the billiard room. An amphitea-
ter will be erected for the occasion
and all seats will be reserved. Be-
cause of the limited number of seats,
tickets should be obtained at an early
date. They will go on sale Monday,
Jan. 10, at the main desk in the Union
and at the desk in the billiard room.
The price is to be 75 cents.
