Eight games have been played thus
far in the Conference basketball race,
all but one of the Tig Ten schools
*having swung into action. Indiana
leads withtwo victories in as many
games, but Purdue, Minnesota, and
Chicago all have clean slates.
Michigan Now Last
Michigan has the unenviable record
of being the only team to lose three
games, by virtue of which fact she is
holding down the cellar position. Il-
linois, the only quintet that has not
played a Conference game, will meet
Chicago tonight at Urbana.
Indiana, Purdue, and Chicago are
likely to be title contenders this seas-
on according to the scores thus far.
Easy victories over Ohio and Michigan
furnish the Hoosiers their credentials,
while decisive defeatsof Wisconsin
and Northwestern indicate that Chica-
go and Purdue, respectively, are rep-
resented by strong quintets.
Gophers Win Indeterminate
Minnesota's victory over Iowa, 24
to 19, indicates little, since almost
nothing is known about the strength
of either team. Ohio appears to have
aislight edge on Wisconsin and North-
western, who seem to be of about equal
power. Ohio establishes its claim to
superiority by reason of the fact that
she beat Michigan harder than did
The games this week will do much
to make the situation clearer. Games

cago and Illinois, Northwestern and
Indiana, Iowa and Chicago, Indiana

Northwestern should serve to separate1

Where It Is Due
The average spectator at a basket-
ball contest is hopelessly ignorant of
the fine points of the game. This ap-
plies to sport writers almost as much
as anyone else. All of us are too apt
to laud the man who does the spectac-
ular, who is constantly in the public
FI[RST PRACTICE HELD
FOR 1921 HOCKEY
LARGE ?dUMBER OF VETERAiN-
MAKES GOOD TEAM CER-
Hockey was officially opened for the
1921 season when members of the :920
Varsity and a number of new asp'rants
held the first workout at the Coliseum
yesterday. The major part of the ses-
sion was devoted to regaining ice legs
and little effort was m ,.de to begin
real work. Most of the time left be-
fore the opening game must be devot-
ed to rounding the squad into playing

the ice earlier in the year has ser-
iously hampered the men in this re-

in two games which should give Mich-

Places Won By
Four medals, three of them silver
and one of them bronze, on the ob-
verse side the insignia of the Detroit
Athletic club, and on the reverse the
words "State Championship" fell to
the lot of Michigan swimmers in the
All-state meet at the D. A. C. Satur-
Winners of the silver were Warren
Hyde, '23, and Lyle Hubbard, '23,
swimming under the Maize and Blue,
and Don Nixon, '24, swimming unat-
tached, while the bronze prize went
to Otto P. Dollavo, '23. The prettiest
race of the evening was in the 50
yard free style in which Hyde and
Dollavo cornered their medals.
The two Michigan men, Paul Rob-
erts, D. A. C. captain, and Johnny Gil-
breath of the D. A. C. qualified for the
finals. Roberts was admittedly the
favorite ;as they went on- their marks
and at the start of the race it looked
like an easy win for the D. A. C.
crack. Back in 1914 when Roberts
was. captain of the Yale swimming
team he went the 50 yards in 25 4-5
seconds. Never since then, until Sat
urday night, had he equalled this rec-
ord. Then, with Hyde the barest
fraction of an inch behind him he con-
trived to tie his collegiate mark. The
Wolverine swimmer lost a trifle on
the first lap, but on the home stretch,
he cut 'down Roberts' lead so much
that, to some, it looked like victory for
Michigan. Not only was Hyde close
behind Roberts, but another small
margin was all that separated him
from Dollavo, winner of third place.
Gilbreath never had a chance, finish-
ing a poor fourth.
Hubbard fought hard to defeat Dave
Nixon of the D. A. C. in the 500 yard
event, but failed by several seconds.
The third entrant, Jeffries of the De-
troit Y. M. C. A. was no match for
either of the leaders. Don Nixon, '24,
former D. A. C. star, swam unattached
and captured a good second in the
220 yard swim,, Ehrlich of the D. A
The result of the relay was a disap-
pointment, Michigan men being forced
to be content with second place. Al-'
though the D. A. C. did'not complete-
ly outclass the Wolverines they pick-
ed up a sufficient lead in the third
lap to enable them to win handily.
A dual meet with the D. A. C. has
been announced for Friday evening,
Feb. 18, at the Detroit pool, and on
Saturday, Feb. 19, Detroit Junior col-
lege will furnish the opposition at the
pool of the Detroit Y. M. C. A.

,LLINOIS REFUSES TO
LET BIRCH REFEREE
Frank Birch, of Earlham, referee of
the Illinois-Ohio football game and
umpire of the California-Ohio battle,
will not officiate in any basketball
games in which Illinois participates,
according to Coach Winters. Birch
has always been one of the mos pop-
ular referees in the mid-west but has
been in disfavor with the Indians since
the Ohio-Illinois scrap for the football
title. Winter's decision has made it
necessary to secure a new referee for
the game with Chicago in which Birch
was to officiate.

Looking back over the three Confer-
ence games played by Michigan this
season,' it seems evident that twoI
men, Whitlock and Rea, have not re-
ceived their due share of credit. Both
of these men have followed the in-
structions given them by Coach Math-
er. They have given up chances to
do the startling and dangerous in or-'
der that the whole team might be ben-
efited. They have sunk all thought of
personal glory in their desire to make
a smoother running quintet.
The hissing which was in evidence
at one of the earlier games was dis-
graceful and unworthy of university
students. It is small wonder if it
took some of the spirit out of the
team. It showed that the whole stu-
dent body 'was not behind its quintet
as it should have been.

to see things in their true proportions.
We should give credit where it is due,
censure if necessary, but never hiss.
PUDUE OUTCLASSED WHEN
WABASH WINS GAME,. 42-22
Lafayette, Jan. 17.-Championship
hopes in basketball received a severe
jolt last Tuesday when Wabash col-
lege took the long end of a 42 to 22
tilt with the Boilermaker quintet atl
Lafayette. The Little Giants outplay-'
ed Purdue from the start and took an-
other fall out of the Big Ten. Wabash
is only one of a number of small col-
leges which has triumphed over Con-
ference teams in early games. Purdue
showed none of the class which char-E

his man hard and has a wicked shot,
the smooth combination play so not-

Kerr's presence of mind and good

The loss of Anderson from the right

this position satisfactorily, Cannon

These men presented a wall that was
hard for opponents to pass last seas-
on, as the low total of points scored
against the Wolverines will attest.
The goal position has been the weak
spot of the team in looking over pos-
sible material and it will be impossi-
ble to decide on a man until just be-

Several men who showed up for the
