Michigan faces -its supreme test
tonight. Northwestern, rated as the
strongest basketball aggregation in
the Western Conference, plays host
to the Maize and Blue at Evanston,
and while as yet untried in Big Ten
competition, the Wildcats are sure
to put up a battle which will force
Coach Veenker's quintet to show
its smartest game.

Chicago has lost but one pre-season
encounter and may turn the tables
on the Indiana basketeers who
have usually had an easy time of it
when opposing the Midway team.
The chief claim to a strong aggre-
gation of players that the Maroons
hold is the fact that they have been
victorious over MarQ,.ette, who in
turn has beaten Wisconsin, the
conquerors of Illinois.
' The battle between Illinois and
Purdue is certain to bring out some
of the fiercest fighting to be seen
