BADMINTON - CODE BALL.
The Intramural department an-
nounces that a combined tourna-
ment for students and faculty will
get under way shortly after the
beginning of the second semester,
probably about the first of March.
The recent exhibitions played at
the Intramural courts has greatly
increased interest in these two
sports and a large entry list is ex-
Ipected. Entries may be filed at the

on the floor that can give the!
audience a real game. The results
of their last three victories show
this by the increased difference in
the score in their favor. The offense
is working together more smoothly
and making their plays count for
points, while the defense grows
harder for their opponents to pene-
trate to any advantage.
Practically every man on the
squad is now turning in a good
account of himself on the court and

every game. Sat-
urday's game was
a good example of
this fact, with no
one failing to
score at least one
time. If the Jun-
ior Varsity con-
tinues at their McDNALD
present rate they are likely to turn
in a faultless record for the season.
The starting lineup tonight will
have Root and Bremen as forwards,
McDonald playing at center again,
and Ricketts and either Tessmer or
O'Neill at guards. This combination
work together effectively as a rule,
but if they do not click after a fair
trial against the Consumers Power
quintet, the coach has other men in
reserve that can fill up the breach.
