Class A C'Ihanipionship
Twenty games, played on five
courts in the Waterman gymnasium,
will mark the first preliminary round
of the interfraternity basketball meet
for the class A championship to be
held tomorrow night from 7 to 10
o'clock. Each game will be of 20
minutes duration with five minutes in-
termission between the 10 minute
halves. With a record number of
teams participating this year, consid-
erable interest is being evinced by the
followers of the sport. Due to the
fact that there are 74 teams entered in
the championship match, the prelim-
inary games will be carried over to
the second semester. There are no
games scheduled from January 19 to
February 7 because of the final ex-

est working of all athletes.

This is particularly true in the
case of men emanating from the
smaller institutions of learning.
It is very seldom or almost never
that men on the teams of these
little schools are ever heard of,
no matter how fine athletes they
may be.
Evar S'wanson, the "Lombard Fly-
er," is a good example of this. Sev-
eral years ago he was a star on the
baseball teairr of Lombard college at
Galeshurg, Illinois, and in addition
earned for himself a wonderful repu-
tation locally for his great work at
quarterback for Lombard.
Illinois critics mentionef him
freely with many of the stars of .
larger schools, but hid only rec-
ognition was from Eckersall who,
if I recall rightly, gave him hon-
orable mention.
Finally, however, Swanson has ac-
quired some measure'of fame at least,
being center fielder and lead-off man
for the San Francisco Mission club
of the Pacific Coast league.
Another example of what itj
means to be playing.for a small
school is that of Larry Betten-
court, great pivot man of St.
Mary's grid team.
For two years Bettencourt was fed
on a bread and water diet of pub-
licity, and then something happened

to recognition-it just wasn't.
in the larger schools and uni-
versities, too, there are cases of
almost total lack of recognition
being accorded .some of the most
deserving of college athletes.
Men on minor sport teams work as
hard as any others in many instances,
and for it all they -m-ay not even get
a letter. Two examples of that whic}
are close to home are those of the
Michigan wrestling and cross coun-
try teams.

that Lincoln and Washington were
both wrestlers and both received
some little recognition.
Of course some will claim that they
were recognized for other qualities,
perhaps for having sense enough to
change to something othe~r than the
mat sport, but your wrestling advo-

foundation of character formed in
wrestling that enabled them to do as
they did-take your choice!

assumed the coaching duties at the
Boilermaker institution in 1919 speak1
the wh'ole truth anud nothing but the
truth, and reveal that the Old Gold
and Black record in that time is the
best in the Big Ten.
Purdue has played 101 games in
the Big Ten since Lambert came here
and has won 66 and lost 35, or nearly
75 per cent victories. The Boilermak-
ers nearest rival in per, cent of gaty
es .won is Michigan, which out of
105 games has won 42 and lost 43,
and trailing on the Wolverines' heels
is Illinois, which has won 6a and lost
45 games out of 108 played. The first
division of the nine year period is
completed by Wisconsin, which has
taken 59 games and lost 49 out .of 108
During the nine year period Pur-
due has won or shared in three cham,

below the first division at the close
of the season. The .one exceptionally
poor year came in 1919.

that only one Big Ten team, Michigan,
holds an edge on Purdue in point of
games won. Of seven tilts between.

latter have been victorious in' four.
Two teams have held Purdue' on even

ed Purdue in games played, sharing
this honor with Minnesota, but the
