It will bo of interest to University
students to learn the record of the
Haskell Indian basket ball team thus
far this season. In all, the Ilcdmen
have played seven games, up to last
night, scoring 233 points and having
only 87 made against them . Only one
team has the distinguished honor of
defeating the Indians, that team being
the Schmeltzers of Kansas City, who
won by a score of 19 to 17. Oliver, the
wonder of the team, and one of tho
best basket ball players in the United
States, has made an even 100 points
for his team this year. What makes his
woik so much more remarkable is that
h" plays center and not forward, and
Fallls does the foul throwing.
Hut there is no reason why the In
dians should not put up a better game
of basket ball than most colleges, as
they have the great advantage of a
training table for their track team.

from five to Ten Yards
The Northwestern Athletic confer
ence has proposed that tho number of
yards to be gained In three down bo
increased from five to ten. and urges
upon the "Big Nine" conference to
adopt this measure.
The object of this proposed change
is to Increase tho open work of the
game and to decrease tho number of
massed plays. It is argued that it will
force the players to resort more to end
work and less to Btralght line bucks.
It is not thought that this proposed
change will receivo much consideration
from the "Big Nine" conference.
