four tries from the floor and one
more from charity lane for a total
of nine points. Daniels, playing
under the opponent's basket re-
peatedly outsmarted Griswold, the
Badger pivot man, to get dog tries
at the basket, most of which he
made good.
From the very outset, it was
apparent that Michigan was the
better team on the floor. Coach
Veenker's players were working to
perfection, with Weiss and Daniels
passing the ball between them at a
baffling speed. Petrie, who had
started in place of Eveland also
worked well into the combination,
and more than made up in fight
what he lacked in size. It was Petrie
who sent Michigan into 'the lead
from which they were never headed
by sinking a difficult over-head
shot with the game less than a

in this department of the game
that the Wolves found the advant-

defense which caused plenty of
trouble. Many promising dashes
down the floor ended with the ball
in the opponent's possession, with
the erstwhile offense quickly drop-
ping back to take their turn at
snatching the ball.
Then, too, the officials were call-
ing the players closely for steps,
bringing the ball to the sidelines
time after time, especially during
the first ten minutes of the game.
Fourteen fouls were called during

Iowa Defeats Purdue, 25-23 as

by 23-31 Count.
Upsets continued to feature the
scramble for Western Conference
cage honors last night when Pur-
due, Ohio State, and Illinois went
down to defeat before Iowa, Indi-
ana, and Northwestern.
All of these games were settled
by two point margins, which brings
the average difference between the
winning and losing teams in the
Big Ten games so far to 4 3-13
points. There have been 13 games
to date, and the total difference
between the scores of the winning
team and the losing teams is 57

Track Team Will Hold
Time Trials Saturday
Michigan's Varsity track squad
will have its second trial run of
the season for time this Saturday
afternoon in Yost Field house. This
run will tell more of the strength
of the thinclads than last week's
trial as all members of the squad
are to participate in the events and
the runners will not be held back
as much as they were in the first
Last Saturday's run was held
principally as a means of condi-
tioning for the men, but several
good times were turned in even!
though the coaches told the runp
ners not to take it too hard. The
Wolverines appear to possess power
in the distance runs, 880, 440, and
the hurdles.

Tommy Courtis, veteran right
wing of the Wolverines, was the
only outstanding player in the game
for either side. Besides scoring both
of the Michigan goals, one on a
pass from Captain Art Schlanderer,
and the other from a scramble in
the goal mouth, Courtis played a
remarkable game on ' the defense.
His back-checking stopped many
goalward rushes of the Hilltoppers,
and 4hi general all-around play was
far superior to anything the oppo-
sition had to offer. The remainder
of the Michigan forward wall, Reid
and Crossman, had all of their
puck carrying ability nullified by
the poor ice conditions.
Wolves Loose in Overtime.
The game as it is went 20 min-
utes overtime before the Marquette
team could score the victory, the
regulation time ending when the
count was knotted at two goals a-
piece. Although the lights on the
Marquette rink have been improved
over last year, they still are not

Due to the fact that West Vir-

a completely accurate forecast
cannot be made as to the Wolver-

this year. However it is not beyond
a possibility that they will have a
first-flight team. Just how success-
ful they will fare against their
Conference opponents remains to
be seen.
Saturday the varsity will engage
in a meet among themselves which
will serve both to give Keen a
further line on his men and to give
the grapplers a needed taste of
competition as the next outside
meet is not scheduled until Jan-
uary 24 'against Michigan State.
The 34 men still left on the squad
will be paired off into 17 matches
for this inter-squad tourney.

Detroit Team Best Competition
That Wolverines Will Meet
This Season.
For the second time this season
the Wolverine Swimming team will
face the Detroit Yacht club nata-
tors when the Detroit team invades
the Intramural pool Friday eve-
nin'. The conies: should result in
one of the greatest meets that the
Maize and Blue will participate in
this year. The Detroit squad, com-
posed of several former Wolverine
aquatic stars, met the Varsity in
December and gave them the stiff-

Jayvees to Attempt Second Win
Over Fast City College
Michigan's Junior Varsity basket-
ball team will go into action tonight
again when they play a return en-
gagement with the quintet from
Detroit City college. The game will
be held in the Field House on the
Varsity court and is due to start
at 7:30. This will be the first of a
series of games for the Junior Vars-
ity running every other night this
The Wolverine Cubs will be play-
ing a team on a par with them-
selves, as was evidenced by the
close score of the first game when
the quintet of the Auto City was
nosed out by the Jayvees for a
21-20 victory. Such a margin is not
enough to qualify either team as
better than the other and the re-
sult of tonight's game is expected
to decide that question. If the "B's"
win again the element of doubt
will be removed, but if the visitors
do not allow a repeat, the teams
will remain two of a kind,
Lineup Taken From Varsity Squad.
The lineup that Coach Ray Court-
right will use to face the Tartans
depends a lot upon just what men
Coach Veenker will allow him to
use. Several of the men he might
be able to use in the game tonight
may be reserved for Varsity pur-
poses. The rostrum for the Juniors
will probably include Hudson, Bald-
win, McDonald and Petrie, for-
wards; Ganer and Manuel, centers;
and Root, Bremen, Tessmer, O'Neill,
and Ricketts, guards. Of this num-
ber Petrie and Root may not be
assigned to the Jayvee lineup for
the evening.
Since the Wolverine Cubs have
won all three of their games to
date, they will take on the Detroit
team tonight in good spirits; but
they will not harbor any delusions
of the quality of their opponents
because they have had trouble in
downing them already. Yet the fact
that the visiting squad has dropped
two games in succession the latter
part of last week may be taken
