Remaining Games Seem to Assure
Bafgers Of At Least Tie
For Championship
All doubts as to the certainty of
the fact whether or not the Car-
dinal of Wisconsin would wave
from the crest of Western Confer-
ence 1929 basketbalidom were dis-
pelled with the Badgers sensational
defeat cf Coach Piggy Lambert's1
Purdue cagers.
Only two games remain on the
Madison card. The Badgers willI
enjoy a layoff for the. remainder
of this week, and will renew activ-t
ities with Coach Veenker's #econd
place Wolverine five next Monday
and then journey to Chicago for
the seasons' final. Granting the
Meanwell coached team a win over
the weak Maroons the Cardinals
are at least assured c a tie for the}
top position.
Wolves Have Two
Two more games likewise remain
on the Wolverine card. The Wolves
journey to Columbus to engage the
rejuvenated Buckeyes Saturday
and then return, for the all im-
portant finale with Wisconsin.
Ohio's brilliant showing against
the .Hawks argues for an unexpect-
edly hard fought battle. Showing
perhaps the best offense of the
year, the Bucks stormed the Iowa
citadel with close in shots and ne-
gotiated a 42-23 win.
The scoring combination of
Evans, Van Heyde, and Fesler
should test the vaunted defense of
the Maize and Blue team to the
limit and the result is largely a
matter of conjecture with the
Veenkermen of a necessity pointed
toward the Wisconsin game on the
following Monday.
Cardinals have Troubles
Wisconsin's high geared basket-
ball machine proved to have some
difficulty in getting underway,
against Purdue Monday night but
before the second half was a few
minutes old the offense which has
characterized the play of the Mad-
ison team all season was much in1
evidence and the champions went
under by a 27-24 count.
Northwestern's Wildcats. success-
fully closed their home season by
defeating Indiana iA a hard fought
game which was forced into an,
overtime period. Captain Hal
Gleichmann's goal with a fraction
of a second to play of the extra
period proved the margin of vic-

One of the fastest collegiate

finished ahead of the Wolverine
star in the national collegiate
championships at Philadelphia.

ent o the uophers who hnave not i
rolled up their largest score of the
year at the expense of McMillan's
Another interesting f: -t of
the past two games is that in
each instance the opposing
guards, who are quite general-
ly considered among the weak-
est in Conference circles, were
the main scoring threats.
In the Hawkeye battle it was
the husky Farroh who caused mosi
of the trouble for the Wolverinc
defense, caging three of Iowa's six
field goals. Then in Monday',,
hectic tussel Tanner and Engebret-
I son accounted for no less than five
of Minnesota's six field goals be-
sides a couple of penalty shots.
It eainot be said, however,
that the Michigan defense,
which has been one of the out-
standing factors in the team's
success thus far, falteredi ap-
preciably in either tilt.
The feared Iowa sharpshooter'
were limited to two field goals from
thee field in the first half and four
in the second, while the Gophers
were limited to three in each of
the 20 minute periods of play.
Individually Captain McCoy
and Chapman stood out head
and shoulders above their
mates with respect to close de-
fensive play in both tlhd Iowa
and the Minnesota contests.
Assigned the difficult task of
guarding Captain "Rags" Wilcox
the high scorer of the Black and
Goldquintet, McCoy held him to
a single field goal, and against the
Gophers he repeated the good
work in spite of the fact that he
was delegated to check George Ot-
:ternes4, :Minnesota's captain and.
chief scoring threat.
The work of Chapman was
even more remarkable although
he confined his activities to
somewhat lesser lights. Two-
good, veteran Iowa forward,
spent a profitable evening with
lanky Bog dogging in his foot-
steps, failing to snare a single
basket, while Nelson, Minne-
sota's husky tip-off man, en-
joyed no better success.
On the other hand, aside from
the first half of the Iowa fray, the
Maize and Blue offensive machine
has failed to run with the degree
of clock-work essential in a cham-
pionship ball club. The Veenker-
men have flashed undeniable bas-

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Feb. 26.-
The melodrama of Miami Beach,
'hat strange and mystifying affair
_eft upon the sand dunes here by
rex Rickard, is moving toward its
;limax in a series of episodes that
teed only a little soft music, the
strumming of a few guitars, to
nake the fantasy complete.
It is strange, yet also true, in its
,ropically colorful background and'
n its astonishing assurance of.
inancial success; but still mystify-
ng, in so far as who shot at Jack
)empsey yesterday just before the
lawn and what will happen In the,
.ing when W. L. "Young" Strib-
ing, the heavyweight pride of the
:outh, and Jack Sharkey, the Bos-
on sailor, fight for ten rounds to
treferee's decision at F'lamingo.
?ark tomiorrow night.
This is the south's first heavy-.
weight fight of national interest
since the palmy days of New Or-
cans as a fistic center and few of
hose in the gathering here can
-ecail that. This is also a major
yid for fame by William Lawrence
Stribling, 24-year-old Macon youth
--the son of an acrobatic father,
and the father of 'an acrobatic
,hild, who has helped enliven the
training proceedings.
Thebetting, such as there has
been of it, ranges from odds of G
'o 5 on Sharkey to even money.
[f there is any change in wager-,
ng sentiment it probably will be
in Sharkey's favor.
Flamingo Park, the new octang-
ular shaped wooden arcna built
especially for the fight, will seat
nearly 35,000 spectators. It may,
ar may, not be filled to capacity:
but the higher priced tickets, $25
each for the "ring side," have,
been sold. The "gate" probably,
will be near $350,000. The bout
will be widely broadcast.
Spurred on by renewed hopes ofs
a tie for the Conference title,
the Wolverine basketball squad
is being sent through strenuous
workouts this Week by Coach Veen-
ker. Most of the practice session
last night was spent in drilling the
team in passing against the Junior
All of the rough spots which
were apparent in the last game
against Minnesota Monday night
are being taten up one by one and
polished off for the two remaining
tilts against Ohio State Saturday
and the formidable Conference
leading Wisconsin five next Mon-
cday on the local court.

One of the letterman on 1the
Wolverine tank team, upon whom
Coach Mann ' is relying to bring
further aquatic honors to Michi-
gan this season. Reif is a free
style sprinter, and will be seen in
action this afternoon in the 50
yard event. He has also been used
on the Wolverine relay team.
Murphy's Chance For
Big Ten Record Slim
Despite the fact that "Stretch"
Murphy, Purdue's elongated center
has virtually clinched Western
Conference individual scoring lau-
rels with a total of 114 points in'
10 games, his prospects for shat-
tering the all-time record are not
so bright.
The Boilermaker sharpshooter
was held to a pair of field goals
and similar number of gratis tosses
by the diligent defense proclivities
of Messrs. Foster, Malthusen, and
Kowalcyk at Madison Monday
night and must average 10 points
per game in the remaining tests
on the Purdue schedule against
the close guarding Ohio State and
,Illinois teams.
The.race for the runnerup posi-
tion which has proved to be the
feature of the individual race
seems to have developed into a
dual race between Van Heyde,
Buckeye center, and Foster, the
Badger pivot star. The 1Ohioan
has a one point margin with 89
points, but with games against
Michigan and Purdue it is -doubt-
ful whether or not the lanky Buck-
eye will be able to add materially
to his total while Foster will be
seen against the weak Chicago
team in the final game of the,
season along with his appearance
against Michigan Next Monday
Players who have accounted for
70 or more points in Big Ten com-
petition are: Murphy 114, Van
Heyde 89, Foster 88, Gleichmann,
Northwestern, 83; McCracken, In-
diana, 80; How, Illinois 79; Chap-
man, Michigan 76; Strickland, In-
diana 75; Gist, Chicago 74, and

Result Of Meeting Will Decide Title
Holder Of Eastern Half
Of Conference
Pointing his men for the meet
with Indiana this Saturday for the
championship of the eastern divis-
ion of the Conference, Coach Clif-
ford Keen, of the title-aspiring
Wolverine mat team, has outlined a
program of hard work for the rest
of the week. With most of the
Varsity wrestlers working their
holds to satisfaction., the time b~e-
fore the crucial test will be used
in getting the men in the -best of
Ed George, who did not wrestle
last week because Coach Keen felt
that - he was not in good enough
shape, has been working hard this
week, and will appear in his role
of heavyweight defender against
the Hoosiers. George was not elgi-
ble the first semester, and could not
work himself into condition fast
enough so that Coach Keen did not
feel justified in using him against
Ohio State.
When the two teams meet this
Saturday, there will be three men
who went abroad with the United
States Olympic wrestling team
scheduled to appear, George and
Hewitt of the Wolverines, and
Scott of the Hoosiers. Scott will go
to the mat in the 178 pound match,
and will be opposed by either Cap-
tain Warren, Parker, or Dougovito.
Hoosiers ,Are Strong
Coach Keen feels that any of
these three men have at least an
even chance of winning from the
Olympic entrant, as he is not un-
beatable as was demonstrated by
Hooker of Purdue.
'The Indiana team on the whole
is, in the opinion of the Wolverine
mentor, one of the best in the
United States. They have lost one
match this year, and that to Ames
college, which is conceded to have
the best team in the country from
'year to year, but were tied by
Northwestern. This meet the
Hoosiers lost by a 15-13 score, as a
result of bad breaks.
In addition, the Hoosiers have
'had from eight to ten other meets,
all of which they have won handily.
On a recent invasion of the. east,
the Indiana team defeated such
strong teams as the Army and
