celled its wrestling meet with
Michigan which was to be held

next year1.
n t i~ r sldi a.L in schedule has
anounceld as well. Wis-
comit's oky sextet will play

!nounced.

By Joe Russei
Northwestern clearly demonstrat
ed its right to a porsition at thetp
of the scramble for Big Ten bash-
etball honors by defeating Michi-
gan 26-21 last night in the Fieldj
House before the largest crowd o%
the season.
This was the second time the
Wildcats have won from the Wol-
verines this season by 5 points, the.
first game between the two teams
resulting in a 27-22 win, for Coach
Lomborg's proteges at Evanston.
This time, however, the victory was
...rmainly due to the
playing of o n e
man-Joe R i e ff,'
lanky Northwest-
ie r n sophomore
center.
Rioff was "hot"
a st night. He
made all but two
of the 15 points
his team accumu-
Lated during the
first half, a n d
WEISS added two more .

JUNIORS TO MEET
JACKSONQUINTET
Consumers Power Basket Tossers
Will Seek to Stop String
of Jayvee Victories.
With six straight victories under
its belt, the undefeated Michigan
Junior Varsity basketball team w ill
again leave town in conquest, this
time to Jackson where they will
meet the Consumers' Power quintet
of that city tonight. All the regulars
who helped dish out the dress of
defeat to the St. Johns clu.b of
Saginaw last Saturday night will be
available.
The strength of the seventh court
squad to face the Cubs is rather an
indefinite quantity, but it is known
that they are the cream of the in-
dustrial basketball crop around
Jackson. It would be better for the
men of the "B" squad if they turn
out to be a harder bunch to beat
than the last three have been, as
it is hardly beneficial to stack up
the Wolverine Cubs against one
long string of teams one rarely
hears of and who merely serve as
doormats for the Juniors.
The Jayvees must not have all
the credit due them swallowed up
in cries of weaker teams though,
as they have been improving rapid-
ly and now put a basketball team

the second period
to bring his grand total for the
evening to 15. In this battle for
scoring honorsNr Daniels, with
five field goals and one foul, press-
ed his rival closely, but could not
quite catch up with the 13 point
first half which Rieff rolled up. j
This loss virtually knocks the
Wolverines out of the Conference
race, since with three losses and
two wins out of five games, their
chances of winning the rest are
rather slim. Several strong teams
still are left on Michigan's sched-
ule for the year, and with the three
losses already chalked up against
them, the Wolves will have to fight
to land in the first division.
,on the other
hand Northwest
ern is still unde-
feated in Big Ten
circles, and ap-

Last night was
something of a
crisis in the Pur-
plefortunes, and
with this game :*.....
safely past their
chances of win-
ning the title are DANIELS
materially strengthened.
The game last night had all the
earmarks of a slaughter when the
invaders piled up eight points be-
fore Michigan really had a chance,
to get going. .This advantage was
too much for the Maize and Blue
to overcome during the first half
which ended 15-12 in Northwest-
ern's favor. Rieff scored every one
of the eight points in this spurt by
tossing the ball over his shoulder
with uncanny accuracy.
In the second half however, Mich-
igan came to life for a time and
forged ahead with the score stand-
ing at 21-17. A double foul was,

BADGERS LOSET TO

Indiana Defeats Iowa, 28-20
Battle for Conference
Honors Goes on. .

as

Another juggling took place in
Western Conference standings last
night as Michigan, Iowa, and Wis-
consin fell before the attacks of1
their Big Ten opponents.1
Iowa dropped below Purdue in
the present standings when thet
Hawkeyes dropped a game to In-
diana 28-20 at Iowa City. This vic-
tory gives the Hoosiers undisputed
possession of third place in the
ratings behind Northwestern and
Chicago, who are still tied for first.
At Minneapolis, Minnesota played
a poor host to the Badgers and sent
them home with their third defeat
of the Conference season by a close'
28-26 decision. Minnesota moves up
a couple of notcnes to a tie with
Ohio State behind Indiana.
Michigan for the first time this
year drops into the second division
with two wins and three losses for
a percentage of .400, and into a tie'
with Wisconsin. Ohio State, Illi-
nois, Purdue, and Chicago did not
play last night and, while they do
not remain in their old places in
the rankings, their percentages are
constant.

YEARLING CAGERS
SHINE ON DEFENSE
Fisher Announces Scrimmages
for This Week-End.
Stressing team-play and offense,1
Coach Fisher began polishing-oil
the play of the freshman basket-
ball team yesterday.
Defense is the best department
in the frosh cagers' game. Although
the varsity inta recent scrimmage
made 23 points to the year'lings'
three, the freshmen had the ball
the majority of the time and if
they could have deciphered the fast
crossing and blocking of the var-'
sity they might have held the first
team close.

Mountsville, Ga., a village of less

For the second time KtisL season
the Maize and Blue were on an
outdoor rink that was a mass of
holes and slush. The Badgers were
used to the conditions and they,
inde the most of the occasion to
win both games of the series. In
the first encounter the Wisconsin
sextet outplayed the Wolves, but
the second game went into the
overtime before one of the Michi-
gan forwards let his man get by
for a shot at the net.
Playing on their own ice and un-
der the same conditions that they
have had all season the Cardinals
were a heavier and harder hitting
crew than the Wolves, who appear-
ed much faster and too light to mix
it for the whole length of the
games. The lack of good spares is
again the fault of the Michigan
team and the regulars have to stay
in the full time. Under adverse
conditions the fresher team has the
advantage.
Varsity puckmen have been drill-
ed for a fast clean game and work
on the best ice in the Conference,
so their play is off when they meet
a heavy team on a rough rink. This
will not be the case when the
Wolves invade the home of the
Gophers this week for they have
one of the best rinks in the west
and the game there should be feat-
ured with speed and clever passing.
Seeks Reserves.
Drills will continue this week on
an attack that has the potentiali-
ties of winning another Big Ten
title. Also Lowrey will attempt to
develop more strength in the me-
sr eves, for it will be almost impos-
Sible to finish the season without
a few good spares to take the strain
off the starting lineup. Reid play-
ed five minutes of each period at.
Madison and he will be ready for
a full assignment by the end of
the week, when he will fill in the
gap in the Wolverine offense.

CHICAGO CANCELS
TANK MEET HERE
Midway Club Unable to Appear
Due to Lack of Funds. 3
Due to the lack of funds the
tank team representing the Chi-
cago Athletic Association has can-
celled the swimming meet previ-
ously scheduled with the Michigan
natators for Saturday night. The
announcement was made by au-
thorities of the Midway club, who
deemed it inadvisable to incur the
expense of a trip to Ann Arbor.
Last year the Wolverines met the
Chicago team in the Windy City,
combining their encounter with
Northwestern and the Chicago A. A.
on the same trip.

American League May Get
Teams in Cleveland, New
York, Brooklyn, Boston.
With the ever-increasing interest
in professional hockey among the
American sporting fans, rumor has
it that several teams are contem-
plating the formation of a new l
American League to compete with
the popularity of the present Na-
tional League which seems to have
a monopoly in the majority of the
larger cities of the country.
The present American League is
greatly handicapped by having five
minor cities represented in their
'ranks thereby detracting from the
interest and publicity which they
would like to draw. In addition to
these lesser lights on the league
roster are three large cities, Chi-
cago, St. Louis, andBuffalo, where
the American league teams fail to
draw the crowds because of the
lack of interest in the results of
games in which the sextets from
the minor cities figure.
The principle drift of the rumor
seems to be in the direction of tak-
ing the puck team franchise from
such places as Tulsa, Duluth, and
