BUCKEYE QU INTET

Game Tonight Will Show What Posi-
tion Michigan May Expect in
200 TICKETS FOR CONTEST
TO BE DISTRIBUTED TODAY
Michigan meets Ohio State at 7:30
o'clock tonight in her third Confer-
ence game, one which will show
whether the Wolverine five can yet
finish the season with a creditable
record of victories and defeats. Some
200 seats for this Conference remain,
and at 1 o'clocksthis afternoon these
will be distributed in exchange for
the proper coupon to the early comers.
The Buckeye squad, which was de-
feated by Indiana by the same score
that Michigan fell to the Hoosiers,
will undoubtedly be much more for-
midable than it was last Saturday
night. Just returned from the long
trip to the Pacific coast with the foot-
ball team, Nemecek and Slyker, stel-
lar guards of last season, Will prob-
ably be in better condition to play to-
night than last week wh6n they had
not accustomed themselves to the
'Nemecek Star Last Year
In the Ohio game at Columbus last
year Nemecek was in a large measure
responsible for the Wolverine defeat.
This lanky guard dropped in five bask-
ets for his quintet, and played a spec~-
tacular game throughout the contest.
Ohio was reputed to have a strong
quintet on early season dope, and de-
spite their first defeat by Indiana,
their prospects for a winning season
are still excellent, especially since the
return of Slyker and Nemecek.
During the past week Mather has
been pointing his men for Ohio. Hard
scrimmage early in the week has been
tapered off until only a light drill of
about an hour was given the Varsity
last night. Thursday evening the
coach had his first string men, Dunne
playing center, go through a vigorous
passing drill in order to perfect the
short pass play. For minutes at a
time the Varsity would succeed in
working the ball around the floor and
close to the basket without the sec-
ond team being able to break up the
play. No shots were taken at the
Better team coordination on Mich-
igan's part is expected by the coach
tonight, and he expects a week's steady
drill to show in the improved game,
which the Wolverines will show
against the Buckeyes tonight.

Preparations for the Hoppe-Peter-
son billiard exhibition to be given next
Tuesday afternoon and evening at the
Union are being taken care of by the
Union officials. Realizing the public
demand to see these two masters of
the. game perform, special arrange-
ments are -being made to accommo-
date the large number of students who
are expected to attend the exhibi-
520 to Be Accommodated
The matches will be held in the
reading room which is directly oppo-
site the billiard room on the second
floor. The tournament table will be
moved into the room and special
lighting fixtures will be installed.
Grandstands will be erected which
will accommodate 520 spectators for
each match. The committee in charge
announces that practically all tick-
ets for the evening performance
have been taken up. A few more, how-
ever, are still available. None of the
seats are reserved. For the after-
noon play, there are still a number of
seats to be had. Students are advis-
ed to speak quickly for them as large
blocks are being disposed of daily.
For the past week, Hoppe and Pet-
erson have been in Detroit perform-
ing before capacity houses both aft-
ernoon and evening. The Detroit press
is loud in its praise of these accom-
plished masters. They are univer-
sally recognized as the world's great-
est in their line of sport. Hoppe with
his machine-like precision in making
long runs and his cool execution of
the most difficult shots has received
Fancy Shots Entertain
Particularly entertaining also have
been the fancy shot exhibitions by
Peterson. There' is nothing which
this wizard cannot do with the balls.

REVESALS OF FORM
MARK COURT LEA6UE
KAPPA SIGMA, CHAMPIONS
LAST YEAR, TASTE DE.
Complete reversals of previous form
by some teams featured Thursday
night's play in the interfraternity
league. Most of the games were fast
and well played, showing an improve-
ment over the first two nights play.
Zeta Psi won from Delta Kappa Epsi-
lon in a whirlwind match, 24 to 4.
The winners showed a good man in
Page who stands out as one of the
surest shots in the league. . Gamma
Eta Gamma made a game fight against
Delta Upsilon but the latter was sup-
erior at all times and ran up a 17 to 0
Acacia Wins Close One
Acacia won the most closely con-
tested game of the evening from Cyg-
nus, 14 to 11. Coates played the
strongest game for Acacia while Point-
dexter did the heavy work for the
losers. The Alpha Sigma Phi-Sigma
Delta Kappa match was an easy 22
to 9 victory for the former who exhib-
ited one of the best combinations in
the tournament. McWood played the
strongest game&for this team and Dur-
bin showed well for the losers.
Nu Sigma Nu defeated Phi Kappa
Psi, 13 to 7, in one of the most ex-
citing games seen to date in the fra-
ternity play. Three Varsity football
men, Goetz for the Nu Sigma Nu's and
Wilson and Froemke for the Phi Psi's,
added to the interest in the battle.
Beta Springs Surprise
Last year's champion, Phi Kappa
Sigma, was toppled by Beta Theta
Pi in the biggest surprise of the tourn-
ament. The losers had been figured as
one of the strongest contenders for
the title but the Beta's wound up on
,the long end of the 19 to 12 score.
In the first game of the second round
of play Phi Chi eliminated Phylon by
a 21 to 6 score. It is almost a certain-
ty that Phi Chi will enter the final
round of play as this team has played
I the most consistent game on the floor.'
Alpha Tau Omega forfeited to Phi Beta
Tickets for the Hoppe-Peter-
son exhibition match Jan. 18, are
selling fast, according to those
in charge of the arrangements.
It is expected that the remain-
ing tickets will be sold short-
ly, so that persons intending to
see the match should not delay
in procuring theirs. An admis-
sion of 75 cents will be charged.

Football teams coached by brothers
will meet next fall at New Haven,
Conn., if the University of Iowa team
takes the expected trip east to meet
Yale. The game is assured if Tad
Jones, head mentor at Yale, signs a
new contract offered by Old Eli.
The contract is favorable and it is
expected that Tad Jones will again
take the Yale eleven in hand. Howard
Jones, his brother, has a long con-
tract to coach Iowa. Brothers met in
football this year when Yale and
Princeton clashed, but brothers as
coaches will be a new event.
Jack Watson, Iowa's veteran train-
er, has accepted a contract with Dart-
mouth university which will take im-
mediate effect. Watson at one time
was one of the leading professional
athletes in this country holding rec-
ords 48 feet 1 inch in the hop, step,
and jump, from standing start and
23 feet 1-2 inch in the broad jump.
Robert Bonson and John Koch,
swimmers on the Wisconsin varsity,
have been choosen on the All-Ameri-
can team by Frank J. Sullivan in the
Coach Richards, Badger football
mentor has openly denounced the
Ohio State grid tactics. In speaking
of the break between the two schools
Richards says, "Other Big Ten univer-
sities rearranged their schedules to
secure- games with Wisconsin, in
striking contrast to Wilce's c6nsidera-
tion for Wisconsin, his alma mater."
Richards further stated that, "Football
is a fine game, but only a game. Wis-.
consin so regards it and keeps it sub-
ordinate to required university work."

THREE OTHER BIG
TEN GAMES TODAY
Chicago, Jan. 14. - :Northwestern
university faces two hard gaines in
the next four days, meeting the pow-
erful Purdue team in Lafayette Sat-
urday, Jan. 15, and then taking on
Indiana in Bloomington, Monday, Jan.
17. Coach Edler has succeeded in
eradicating many of the faults seen
in the Wisconsin game, and has a
much stronger quintet to take on the
excursion into Indiana. Indiana is
now leading the Big Ten with two
games won and none lost, but North-
western should prove the first real
test. for the Hoosiers, and also de-
termine the place of the Purple team.
Iowa vs. Minnesota
Two teams of unknown power open
their Conference schedules against
each other when Iowa meets Minne-
sota on the latter's floor. Iowa has
sent out pessimistic reports from the
first of the season, especially since it
was definitely known that Finlayson, I
last year's center, would not be able
to play on account of an operation.
Three veterans will be on the team
when it takes the floor in Minneap-
olis. These men are Aubrey Devine,
Captain Kaufman, and Shimek. The
other members of the team have been
