Indiana.Wisconsin and Chicago.
Purdue Contests Are Only
Conference Tilts.
battling with Indiana for second
place honors, the Badgers will play
their last game of the 1930 Con-
ference basketball season tonight in
Wisconsin's little red armory. The
Hoosiers, standing only half a game
below the Badgers in the stand-
ings, will enter the skirmish at Ma-
dison determined to do their ut-
most in the way of usurping the
riinerup position from Wisconsin.
Both Indiana and Wisconsin have
a total of seven victories over Big
Ten opponents to their credit, but
the Hoosiers have lost three games
to the Badgers' two. However,'
Coach Meanwel's team is complet-
ing a 10 game schedule tonight
while the Crimson squad goes to
Minneapolis next Monday to take
on the Gopher quintet in the final
contest of a 12 game campaign.
MacCracken Gets Chance.:
Captain Branch MacCracken, the
Crimson center, will have one more
chance after tonight to top the
Conference scoring list. A close
battle has been waged all season
between "Stretch" Murphy of Pur-
Purdue...........9 0 1.000
Wisconsin ...........7 2 .778
Indiana...........7 3 .700
Michigan ...... -.. .6 4 .600
Illinois.. ........7 5 .583
Northwestern.......6 6 ..500
Minnesota.. ......2 9 .182
Chicago..........2 9 .182
Ohio State.........1 9 .100
due, and the Hoosier leader for the
scoring honors of the Big Ten. Mac-
Cracken is leading his opponent by
one more point with a total of 129
points, but has also competed in
one more game.,than Murphy.
In the other Western Conference
cage game tonight, which will prac-
tically complete the Big 'Ten season
as far as gamIeS affecting the stand-
ings go, the undefeated Boilermak-
er quintet will be pitted against the
Maroon miracle team. The- lowly
Chicago team, after losing all of
its games for more than the first
half of the season, finally found it-
self .in two affairs and came out
viitorious against two of the strong-
estig Ten dage teams. To afford,
cage followers two of the greatest
surprises of the season, the Chica-
go quintet, even now barely out of
the cellar position, have won over
the second place Badgers and Il-
lihois has also bowed to the Ma-
rons. Illinois is in fourth honors
in the standings.
Lambert Fears Overconfidence.
Coach Ward Laiibert of the Boil-
efuakers warned his squad, after
viewing the Maroons- Indian bat-
tle, that a let down would be dan-
gerous for his team. If Purdue de-
f*ats Chicago in this last contest,
it will be the first time since 1919
that a Conference team has gone
through its regular schedule with-
out losing a Big Ten game. I

Despite the loss of the veterans
Bryant; Hart, Joseph, and ygord,
who either have or will have gradu-
ated by this spring, Coach Eddie
Lowrey's 190-31 hockey team
should again prove to be one of
the best setets in the Westerh
Conference. The W biveriies, ne=
ly crowned chainpio 'i rthis year,
are depending upon several fresh-
men who have shown more than
average ability in their games and
practice sessions to date.
Four yearling stand out as al-
most sure tomake theregular team
next year if they contiue tthe pace
that they have set thissn Wil-
liams, a de ens~ xai, Crossan
and Sindle, wing., ii eid, cen-
ter, all have played fai tbove the
ordinary in their drills a iinst the
Varsity throughout the receit cam-
Several other lien also showed
that they have the ability to make
the grade next season, the n'ost
promising among them being Grit-
cher, Roach, and Hldner, defene,-
men, and Frumkes, a cter. It
is probable that all of them will
be retained at least as spares on
the 1931 team.,
Although it is early to make any
predictions as to the makeup of
next year's comblnatidn, barring
accidents a fairly strong team
should be ready to go oin the ice at
the opening whistle.

Meet Scheduled Today
(contined Iotr irge )
year ago.
In the 220 yard free style event
Cannon, of Syracuse will defend his
title. Competing under the colors
of Lakewood, Ohio, high school
Cannon churned the distance in
2:22.4 and has been clocked under
this mark on two occasions already
this year.
The .national record break-
ing performance of L.ewis Le-
mak of Highland Park, in the 100
yard breast stroke, now on Matt
Mann's freshman teaki, seems safe
for At least andther year. Schmeller
of Pittsburgh, Carrick of North-
western, and Robinson of South-
eastern are the favorites in this
event. Northern, and McLain of
Eastern are the favorites to win in
this number.
In the back stroke with Drysdale
of Highland Park, McLaine of East-
ern and Blair of Redford the fa--
vorites the mark of Rosen of
Roosevelt of Chicago seems well
out of reach. A strong field is en-
tered in the diving despite the fact
that the defending champion Dick-
ie Degener of Central of Detroit is
not entered. The favorites in this
year's event are Diefendorf of
Northern, Gormaine of Northwe-
tern, and Schmeiler of Pittsburgh.
In the relay events Northern and
Northwestern are expected to stage
a strong battle for honors and it
is )probably the result of the med-
lays which will play the biggest
part in crowning the new cham-
pion. Northwestern is conceded a
slight edge in the medley relay
while Northern seemstocarry a
bit the better of the argument in
the free style relay.
