DEAL, Eng., Feb. 24-Serious loss
of life was feared from the sinking
i tonight of the Italian steamer Al-

Floundering Wolverines, Definitely
Eliminated From Big Ten tAte
Remain As Barrier
By Herbert E. Vedder
Michigan, floundering about in the
center of the Big Ten basketball
scramble with an even .500 record
as a result of four wins and as many
losses, will enter upon the final third
of her 1928 schedule when the er-
ratic but third place Northwestern
ive makes its appearance here to-
night in a return game. The game
will start at 7:30 o'clockt, but the
doors will probably'open beforet7.
At this time two years ago the
Wolverines were in a similar posi-
tion in the standings but a five game
drive netted'them a tie for the 1926
title. Today, however, with Wiscon-
sin heading the list with only one
beating chalked up against seven
wins while three other teams, Pur-
due, Indiana and Northwestern have
only two defeats apiece, the Maize
and Blue can scarcely cherish am-
bitions of repeating.
Instead, the 1928 Wolverines will
assume the role of chief trouble ma-
kers for chamionshiu aspirants --
beginning tonight. In addition to
Northwestern, the Wolverines will
have an opportunity to fire at both
Indiana and Wisconsin before the
season closes March a.
Purple Still In Ratce
As is usually the case, with Mich-
igan-Northwestern games, tonight's
affair means much. To Northwestern
it may mean the paving of a way to
her first Conference basketball title
In many years, for after the Wol-
verine obstacle, Coach Arthur Lon-
borg's quintet will have three tilts
remaining which, on paper, should
not test the Wildcats too ;nech.
The Wolverines, on the other land,
without titular aspirations, would
like to establish themselves as a first
division quintet and show that Pur-
due's two victories were not so much
because of Michigan failures as the
Boilermaker ability. Northwestern
will give the Maize and Blue an op-
portunity to gain retribution in some
small degree for the opening game of
the year, when a beating by the Pur-
ple quintet started them on the down
hill road.
Northwestern Record Peculiar
Northwestern's record is most pe-
culiar, the unreliability of the Evan-
ston five being shown by their le-
feats by Ohio and Illinois, Capt\z
Fisher, "Point Catcher" Walter,
Gleishman, Jonsos, and Marshall
have been the Wildcat combination
all year, and when right, were quite
)mild. They are all big and play the
ball well off the floor. Aiility to fol-
low shotsand success in desperate
dries at the backboard has featured
the play of the Wildcats this year.
