CHICAGO MEETS INDIANA
Preliminary skirmishes which have
resulted most disastrously in many
instpnces, partially due to the am-
bitious Pittsburghfive, -will comie to
an end for Western Conference
teams in another day or so and the
inner lid will be pried off S'aturday
when, every one of the ten schools
will engage in the first contests of
what promises to be the greatest race
of Big Ten basketball history.
Defeats have been such every day
occurrences for the Conference fives
that one almost wonders about the
calibre of ball player by them, but
it can hardly be said that they do
not measure up to standard when it
is realized that the eastern teams
which have caused so much trouble
have been playing for quite a bit
longer a time than have the Big
Ten schools. Another factor to be
taken into consideration is that
many of the cagers have just trans-
ferred from the gridiron. Rather than
belittle the Big Ten one might well
speak a word in its favor and con-
demn it for its overainbition. '
Pittsburgh Five Is Strong
A great Pittsburgh quintet stamp-
ed itself as of iron by winning from
four Conference opponents, Michigan,
Chicago, Northwestern, and Iowa In
five days. Pitt has yet to be beaten,
all opponents looking alike to the
wily Panthers who respect no sect
or sector.
Craig Ruby's Illint cagers took a
Christmas Jaunt to the Pacific coast
and dropped two out of three to
Washington but considering every-
thing, this is no disgrace. The Wol-
verines, true to tradition, lost a
second game in ,a row when Penn-,
sylvania finally took a hard-fought,
hair-raising struggle by three points
in the final 30 seconds. But Penn
went on her way and added Ohio
State to her victims' list Monday
night, 33 to 28.
Wisconsin closed a great pre-sea-
son series by walking over Oregon'
Aggies, 36-20, Monday, and it is not
at all impossible that Dr. Meanwell
has one of his great Badger teams
in spite of pre-season dopesters who
predicted a lean year for the veteran
Wisconsin coach.
Probably the biggest feature vie-
tory by a Conference team, however,
was Northwestern's stirring win over
the rather invincible Notre Dame
cagers. This. wad snatched by a 25-
23 score in the closing minutes of'
play, Northwestern accomplishing the
feat .of holding the Irish scorcless
for the last eight' minutes. According,

In view of the fact that 2,000 mer,
are expected, to participate in the
j arious basketball tournaments, it isI
imperative that all men intending to
play with the exception of freshmen,
undergo P. medical examination early
according to an announcement at the,
intranoural office, yestercay. Men,
who have not complied with this re-
quirement, will not be allowed to par-;
ticipate in any of the basketball gam-
ees.
Approximately 1,000 men have not
taken the required physical ex mina-
tion to date, and for the benefit of
these players time has been extended
to Wednesday and Thursday of thisI
week, from 7 to 10 at the Waterman
gymnasium, at; which time there will
be medical examiners to give the re-
ouired tests. All athletic managers
should take note of this fact and per-
sonally see that the respective mem-
bers of their teams have complied1
with the eligibility requirements for
competition.

The 192 yearling squad is notice-
ably inferior to that of last two sea-

Fisher. The majority o° the men are
much smaller in stature, while the
larger candidates are handicapped by
clun:!siness.
Considerable improvement has been
made by the yearlings since the open-
ing of the season, and Voach Fisher
expects them to show even more d'-

weeks of the practice. 'The small size
of the squad enables im to devote
