Strother "T-Bone" Martin, in his
first collegiate effort, put on an im-
pressive performance to beat team-
mate Jack Wolin in the diving. Mar-

Wolin while Leo Biedrzycki, the lone

Northwestern University ran up a 25
to 12 halftime lead tonight and then
withstood Indiana's comeback to
hand the Hoosiers a surprise set-
back, 40 to 36, and drop them from
a first place tie with Purdue in the
Big Ten basketball race.
The Wildcats completely dominat-
ed play in the first half in which
Indiana was held without a field goal
for a 10-minute stretch. However,
the game was bitterly fought all the
way and the second half was hardly
underway before six men had been
dismissed for too many personals.
Clawson, Ilein and Shepard were
the Northwestern players ousted. For
Indiana it was Armstrong, Zimmer
and Huffman.
After the wholesale dismissal,
Northwestern's defense sagged and
Indiana began its rally. Northwes-
tern hung -on, however, and used the

Chuck Fenske
Is Victorious
In BaxterMle
NEW YORK, Feb. 17.-(RP)-Chuck
Fenske, the 1940 mile-running sen-
sation, ran his winning streak to five
straight tonight in capturing the
27th running of the New York A.C.'s
Baxter Mile in 4 minutes 7.4 seconds
before a crowd of 15,000 at Madison
Square Garden.
Putting on a killing sprint for the
last three-quarters of a lap, the be-
spectacled University of Wisconsin
graduate student collared Lou Zam-
perini in 40 yards of straightaway
and then won by three yards.
The time equalled the fastest ever
recorded indoors for a competitive
race turned in by Glenn Cunningham
in the 1938 Knights of Columbus
games and matched by Fenske two
weeks ago in the Millrose Meet, when
he beat Cunningham by three yards.
Greg Rice, former Notre Dame cap-
tain, evened his score with Don Lash
for the season at 3-all by Winning
the two-mile run in 9:04.2. Lash,
fbr once, didn't even figure in the
closing sprint, in which Rice opened
up a 5-yard margin on Tommy
Deckard. In third place came Wal-
ter Mehl of Wisconsin with George
DeGeorge of the New York A.C.
fourth and Lash a bad fifth.
