leglans were doubtlessly superior in the
general floor work because of previous
engagements, and snapped the scrap-
ping Wisconsin five under a 27 to 24
tally.  Weak features in the Badger
ranks fairly glared and harmony of ac-
tion was conspicuous by its absence.
Another week of practice and a jaunt to
Milwaukee gave the Badgers an oppor-
tunity to retrieve the Franklin flop at
Christmas time by whipping Marquette
University, 29 to 26. It was a gruelling
clash with no let-up. Thousands of*
Badger and Hilltop fans saw the Car-
dinal triumph in the holiday clash.
   The second contingent Indiana sent
 to Madison was unable to ditto the
 Franklin trick, and Wisconsin dropped
 DePauw, 24 to 20. The game flashed
 with action, gaining momentum with its
 progress. Wisconsin was never able to
 ease her pressure on the Methodists.
   Meeting on neutral ground     with
 Syracuse University in Cleveland, 0.,
 the Meanwell bucks Qpened their un-
 remitting attack and baffled the Empire
 State super-five, 31 to 24.
   Unable -to work under the hoop with
 any compensation for their efforts,
 Coach Everett Dean's Heisers blotched
 the record of Wisconsifrs Conference
 opener with a 28 to 23 victory by heav-
 ing the ball from mid-floor.
   Wisconsin'led at the start but lost her
 commanding position early in the game,
 never to regain it. A promising rally as
 the end drew near was stunted by the
   Wisconsin recovered herself later and
 defeated-Ohio State, 25 to I6, in a game
-that lacked any-especial playing ability.
   Victnr- -was again realized by the
 Meanwell team on January 15, when it
invaded Patten gym at Evanston and
trounced Northwestern, 28 to 18, with-
out strained effort. The Purple Wild-
cats were bagged by Wisconsin in clever
  Migrating to the Midway two nights
later, the Badgers licked Chicago, 33 to
30, hfter cutting down a 14 to i I lead
which stood against them as the first
half ended. Two baskets by Wisconsin
in the last mninute crowded the game into
an overtime period, and the Badgers
made haste to cap the steaming fracas.
The 27 to 27 deadlock at the close of the
last half spurred Wisconsin on to greater
efforts which climaxed in'victory. Chi-
cago played rings around the Cardinal
in the opening canto, and only grim
determination kept the score confined
to 14-I. The conflict with North-
western two nights previous showed
heavily on the Badgers in the Maroon
engagement.-AL WAYO, '29.
          MINOR SPORTS
W    HILE the Badger swimmers pad-
     dled their way to a 35 to34 victory
over Chicago, the Cardinal grapplers
were pinned by the Hawkeyes at Iowa,
17.5. to 7.5, and Wisconsin's puck
chasers were whipped twice by Minne-
sota I to o and 3 to I, in a program of
week-end engagements, January 14-15.
Points were almost a secondary con-
sideration in the wrestling and hockey
events.. Inexperienced, the: Badger mat
technicians and pucksters won moral
victories in the fierce battles they waged
against their veteran opponents, the
Hawkeye wrestlers and Gopher skaters.
  Wisconsin natators, in an intense tank
contest with .Chicago on January 14, at
the Midway, made a victorious rally as
the meet drew to a close and sub-
merged the Maroon swimmers, 35 to 34.
The marginal lead of the Badgers sprang
with   the diving events.     Chicago
equalled the standing conference record
in the i6o yard relay race by making
the distance in I:I8. Wisconsin was
defeated in the water polo game, 9 to 4.
   Minnesota, Big Ten champions of
 hockey, scored a double victory over the
 green Badger pucksters, registering a
 I to o win on January 14 and duplicating
 the task again January 15 with a 3 to I
 score on the lower campus rink here.
 Wisconsin fought doggedly against the
 veteran Gophers, pressing the Minne-
 sota's sextette into the most intense
 puck stragety it was capable of putting
 into use. Minnesota's second win was a
 freak, one of its points coming as the
 result of a Wisconsin man's attempt to
 clear the puck from the vicinity of the
 goal, and the other as the result of an
 interfering skate that changed   the
 course of the puck and sent it into the
 With Capt. "Bill" Splees out of the
 meet with injuries, the Badgers lost to
 the Hawkeye wrestlers Saturday night
 at Iowa City, 17.5 to 7.5, after a valiant
 tussle to avenge past defeats.  The

Smith. 125-Logan (I) three Holt time

     luncheon chairman, started his new
regime with a bang on Friday, January
7th, and one of the largest crowds since
the close of the football season greeted
Mr. Arnold Horween, head football coach
of Harvard. Mr. Horween made a hit
with the U. of W. boys by expressing the
hope that Harvard and Wisconsin might
have an opportunity for playing a home
and home series of football games.
