Basketball Team To Seek
Third Big Ten Victory;
Iowa Five Inexperienced.
A victory over Iowa's basketball
squad tonight at the Field House
will leave the Wolverines in the same
position that they were before game
time, the "dark horse" in the Big
Ten title race, but if the Hawkeyes
should win Michigan's stock will take
a decided fall.
By fscoring its third straight tri-
umph in the Conference race, Mich-
igan can keep its slate clean and re-
tain at least a partial hold on first
place along with Purdue and In-
diana, who are favored to win against
Wisconsin nd Minnesota respective-
Need Early Start
If the six regulars, who have been
carrying the whole load so far, can
break their habit of getting off to a
slow start by piling up a commanding;
lead, Coach Bennie Oosterbaan will
get. an opportunity to test several of
the reserves he has been forced to
hold back because the games have
been close. Any coach is averse to
breaking up a smooth working com-
bination, especially in a nip-and-
tuck affair.
Although given a decided edge
over Coach Rollie Williams' quintet,
which has lost its last six games, the
Wolverines are not taking the game
for grantedsand Coach Oosterbaan
will start his regular five.
As Oosterbaan stated, "Iowa is a
young and green team which hasn't
found itself, but it is liable to hit its
stride and break into a scoring rash
any night."
Williams Agrees
Backing hin up is hawkeye Coach
Rollie Willia who declared at the
beginning of the season that Iowa
was "just fair but very likely to im-
prove." Add to this the recent com-
plaint of the Hawkeye mentor that
his team's chief inability in the last
few games has been to cash in on the
great number of scoring chances.
While Michigan is set on its start-
ing line-up for tonight, Williams is
certain of only two positions. The
only definite starters are Vic Siegel,
sophomore forward who is leading
Iowa's scorers with 81 points, and
Paul Siglin, sophomore guard who
broke into the starting line-up against
Indiana Monday.
Bill Wheeler, another first year
man, has been getting the opening

Lowrey Men Are Favored
To Win Second Game
In Conference Series
Their first Big Ten victory of the
season a matter of record as result
of a 3-1 win over Illinois' hockey
team Thursday, the Wolverines will
try to go whole .hog tonight at the
Coliseuin and make it two straight
over Vic Heyliger's Illini puckchasers.
The Orange-and-blue invaders will
be gunning for their first victory
this season, having fallen before
Minnesota last week prior to going
down under Michigan's three goal
attack in the final period here Thurs-
day night,
Michigan Favored
Illinois will have to step tonight
if the boys from Champaign expect
to stdp the Wolverines, for the Low-
reymen hit an all-season low for
aggressiveness in the first game.
Michigan lacked speed and fight in
the first two periods, and their three-
goal rally in the final stanza was the
redeeming factor of the contest. They
should come back even stronger to-
Two of the Wolverine tallies in
the two goal splurge came from the
stick of defenseman Charley Ross
who scored both times on solo dashes
that went the length of the ice
through the entire Illinois squad.
The other Michigan score came
by Paul Goldsmith on a pass in front
of the net from Gil Samuelson, after
Charley Ross had again carried the
puck into the visitors' defense zone.
Goldsmith's play showed a decided
improvement over his past perform-
ances. He exhibited more aggres-
siveness, and is timing was much
better, thus minimizing the number
of offsides that were called.
James Was Hurried
In the nets, Capt. Spike James was
not given much to do until the last
period, when he had to face five-
man Illinois rushes as the visitors
turned on the pressure in attempts to
even the count. 'Several times, too,
Joe Lotzer, who sparked Illinois' at-
tack skated rightin on him alone, but
the lanky Canadian moved too quick-
ly and prevented a .score.
Heyliger will start the same lineup
tonight as he did in Thursday's
game. Jack Gillan, a sophomore on
the squad will be in the nets. In the

Campus Religious
Magazine Issues
Call For Material
A call for literary contributions to
the "Religious Forum," newest cam-
pus publication, was made yesterday
by John Huston, '41, Student Reli-
gious Association publications man-
The new publication will try some-
thing quite different in the way of
magazines edited by religious groups,
according to Huston, who described
the Forum as a place for debate on


modern English poetry, concluded his
lecture yesterday afternoon in the
Rackham Auditorium, the audience
clapped and began to leave. They
were slow in leaving. Most of them
formed in small, argumentative circles
to discuss what they had heard.
The theory that Mr. Auden had
slowly, haltingly, at times almost in-
coherently, expounded took time and
thought to piece together, to under-
stand. The audience was apparently
on its way home before it began to
grasp the full implications of Auden's
Gradually his listeners came to
agree upon the modern paradox that
was his thesis, the paradox that from
the sense of loneliness and suffering
of modern men, caught in the imper-
sonality of the machine age, comes
the recognition of the unity of indi-
viduals and the possibility of estab-
lishing a common order.'
The writer of the Romantic school,
Mr. Auden explained, drew apart from
the world and attempted to create
order in a world of his own making,
since all art is the creation of order
within a typical medium. Modern
poetry, however, has come to realize
a new sense of order-an order which
can be developed by the artist from
the loneliness of machine-age man.
If this is true, Auden pointed out,
the artist and people now become
identical, but not, in the Marxian
sense, identical through common ow-
nership of property. Man's common
bonds today are his needs and suf-

Admiral Matt Mann Prepares.
is Mariners For OSU Meet

(Special to The Daily)
COLUMBUS, Jan. 12.-Michigan's
highly touted naval forces settled out-
side Columbus harbor tonight and
began making final preparations for
tomorrow's important sea battle with
th eBuckeyes from Olim State.
Not since the Graf Spee set into
Montivideo port has there been so
much excitement created over a fight
on the water, but the battle tomorrow
again brings together Admiral Matt
Mann of the Wolverine fleet and Ad-
miral Mike Peppe, pilot of the Ohio
forces, renewing their bitter rivalry
over the supremacy of the nation's
inland waters.
Observers here tonight looked for-

Wolverines. Not since 1937 has
Michigan won a dual swimming meet
from Ohio. Two years ago Mann's
mermen lost both decisions to the
Buckeye forces' and last winter the
two swimming powers fought to a
standstill. Their fwo 42-42 dead-
locks created natatorial history.
There was an air of confidence that
arose from theuMichigan fleet as it
ly anchored outside the harbor to-
night, Not since the Exeter, Ajax
and Achilles joined up off the coast
of Uruaguay has there been such a
gathering of naval power.
Mann has 14 of the Western Con-
ference and National Collegiate
champions readyto match against
the Buckeyes. Capt. Hel Benham,
