BRadger ,Invade Northwestern, Purdue
fleets Gophers, And Illnois
Pilys At Columbus
Q' re ..kltr{Iall games, only one
them aff 'ct ,In: the first place stand-
ing in the c inmpionship race, are
scheduled for Coiference teams to-
+ night ,and three more frays are slated
for Monday night: these are of more
importance in (eternining the temp-
orary Big Ten leadership.
Wisconsin's quintet will invade
Northwestern at Evanston, Illinois!
jouineys to Columbus for a battle
with the Ohio State five, and Minne-
,ota will play Purdue at d4afayette,
in the games carded for tonight, while
Wisconsin will play at Chicago,Indi-
ana at Nortwestern. 'and Illinois at
Micltiga in Monday's game.
The Badgers, with one game won
and one lost thus far this season, are
favored to win from the Purple to-
night. Although they succumbed to
the powerful Indiana five by a 28-2
score last week, Coach Meanwell's
aggregation cannot be counted out of
the titular race. Likewise, Coach!
Kent's Wildcats, having suffered two
previous defeats, oie to Illinois, and
one to Northwesten, have been de-
veloping fast, and may prove a stum-
bling block for the stronger teams
when the season is well under way.E
Purdue, beaten only once, must dis-
pose of the weaker Minnesota team to
keep up in the percentage column, r
while Illinois must dispose of thef
tice beaten but dangerous Ohio com-
bination to retain its tie for the Big ,
Ten lead.
Illinois' battle with the Wolverinese
next Monday is regarded as one of ther
crucial tests of the early showings.5
Should Illinois dispose of Ohio to-I
night, they will meet a strong op-
ponent in the Michigan team, whom
they must defeat to retain first place.
Likewise, Indiana must eliminate
!Northwestern from its first round list
to stay at top. If the latter is suc-
cessful in turning back the WisconsinC
charge they may put up a better show-I
ing against the Hoosiers than presento
facts indicate.I
Indiana, credited with wins overr
Wisconsin and Minnesota, still re-a
main's the favorite against the re-p
mainder of the field in the long fight.s
Touted as the strongest Big Ten team
before the regular season opened, thek
Hoosiers have presented a powerfulf
offense, and a little less impregnablef
but nevertheless strong defensiveo
Other teams In the Conference still
remain in the thick of the battle,s
however. ;llinois, with four seasoned
men and a sophomore find to make upr
the regular lineup, gives, promise of
having a successful season, as dof
Iowa and Michigan. Likewise, Pur-
due has shown enough "class" to be
considered as a powerful factor in the
final result, while Wisconsin, always
late in reaching their best form under
the tutelage of Coach Meanwell, may
prove another upset.
If the Thomas family had not
moved to California, the names of M.
Thomas and L. Thomas would prob-
ably have been in the Chicago lineup,
just as J. Thomas and H. Thomas
used to be.

If history repeats itself Michigan
should have a record breaking quarter;
miler a ain this spring, ane from ther
wealth of material Coach Farrell has
on hand, it is not at all Inrobable
that Ilaff's mark 48 4-5 sec. for a
Varsity record will 'go by the board."
In 1899, Michigan had a great
quarter miler' named Teetzel who ran
-440 yards in an even 50 seconds. it
was 14 years before another Wolver-'
ine trackman was able to better this
record, and Haff was the inian who
(lid it. Thai was in 1913. This spring
will mark the fourteenth year since.
Ilaff's performance and with such out-;
standing new men as Kelly of lastI
year's freshman squad and several I
veterans like Munger, Mueller, and
Ohlheiser, a better than 48 4-5 sec'
may be turned in.
HIaimbaugh's miark of 9 min. 33 sec..
for the two-mile run was made in
1912, and the chances of bettering this
mark next spring are apparently
slight. The best performance previ-
ous to 1912 was 9 min. 34 4-5 sec.
made by Rowe in 1907. Rowe, in his
three years of competition, lowered the
existing record nearly 27 seconds. !
Another record that seems even
more safe is that for the mile run.I
Carroll ran the fastest mile a Michi-
gan man has ever made, 4 min. 16 2-5

sec.. in 1916. This is one o the il
collegiate performances ever tndii A

in 1925, was probably the bot sS(

a close second. Reinke holds) the
Michigan record with two perform-
ances of 1 min. 54 4-5 sec. in his senior
year. This is 2-5 of a second faster
that Ufer's time in 1916.
Pole-vaulters have also been of high
calibre recently, including such men
as Wesbrook, Landowski, Lrooker,
and Northrop, the latter being captain
of this year's team. Wesbrooin

University of North Carolina's basketball team is about to begin its
efforts to annex its fifth consecutive Southern conference cage title. T111,
"Tar Heels" have won four basketball titles in the Southern organization
within the last four years. This season, however, Jim Ashmore, the new
coach who comes to North Carolina from Depauw university, faces the dif-
ficult task of building a team of mostly green material.
The nucleus of the 1927 team are Capt. Bunn Hackney, all-Southern
guard last season, and Billy Vanstory, forward and center, who will prob-
ably play center this year. Morris, guard, and Sides, forward are the oth-
er experienced men who will make strong bids for regular berths. The
new men who show promise are Sharpe, Perkins, and Harvell from last
year's reserve team; Shatterfield and Rufus from the freshman team; and
Price, a letter man in 1925, who has returned to school.
