By EARL HILLIGAN CHICAGO, (/<?)—Purdue's Boilermakers apparently will roar into the Big Ten basketball title race under a full head of steam. Coach Ward Lambert's team has won four "tune-up" contests, getting the fourth victory Saturday night over De_ Paul university's classy aggregation. It was the stiffest test thus far for the Boilermakers and the manner in which they came from behind tc take a 53 to 45 decision indicated they will be standout favorites to grab at least a part of the championship they shared with Indiana last season. The battle, bitterly fought from the opening tip-oiV, was deadlocked nine times, Purdue cracking the last tie to go into a 46 to 44 lead with five minutes to play. I Illini Beat Irish. Illinois' title stock rose sharply as the result of a 44 to 29 lacing the Illini handed Notre Dame. Louis Boudreau, sophomore forward, scored six field goaU and six free throws, while another first year man, Tom Nesbii,, scov- cd four times from the field. Illinois led 40 to 14 at the half-time and the Irish had little success until the final minutes, when Coach "Gag" Mills pulled his regulars. Wisconsin, paced by Hod Pow, ell, continued on the undefeated ' road by trouncing Maixjuette. 35 to 29. Powell made seven field goals and a pair of charity attempts as the Badgers turned in their fourth consecutive win over ! the Hilltoppers in two seasons. Northwestern Wins. Northwestern won its fourth straight game, defeating Western State of Michigan, 38 to 26. Mike McMichael, veteran Wildcat forward, bagged five field goals and one free throw.- Chicago, with Bub Fitzgerald ' getting six baskets, downed Armour Tech 33 to 18, while Minnesota, previous defeated by North Dakota State, wen', down before Kansas State. 37 to 36. !

Those devils are coming back! And, because this newspaper is edited for the home, let us hasten to explain that it's those Blue Devils from Davenport high school that we're talking about. They'll be here Tuesday night, rotund Paul Moon and his squad, for a game with Mason City's Mohawks. The place is the high school gymnasium, and the hour is 8:30—and judging from the turnout that packed 'em in clear to the rafters last i season, y o u' d best come early and grab a seat. A record that has yet to include a defeat •—that's what iDavenport will put at stake when the Blue Devils appear GORMAN here. They'll play s Mason City squad that is victory-hungry, and needs a win to break even for the pre-Christmas season. Following their policy of winning on alternate nights, the Mohawks ought to come out on "top Tuesday. They lost to Newton, beat Muscatine; lost to Clear Lake, beat Albert Lea, Minn., a state title contender of last season; and dropped their first start in the Big Four conference to V. T i,terloo West, last Friday night, by 38 to 22. D a v e n p ort got away this season with a 20 to 18 win over Iowa City, as Jack Mahoney, reserve guard, popped in the winning basket during „ the early seconds of an overtime period. The Blue Devils hc,d failed to get a basket in HUFF the first half, but came up with a rush in a last-quarter rally, The Moonmen defeated their c.ver-the-river rivals, East Moline, ill.. 27 to 24. grabbing the lead early, watchip.g their margin fade until East Molina led by 20 to 18 at the start oi me fourth period, and then spurting to rack up the victory. They continued their streak last week-end at Clinton where they defeated their neighbor city's capers, 51 ^o 18. Mason City lost to Waterloo West .and trailed by 16 to 2 at the end of the half, last Friday night. But that isn't so bad as it might sound. The Mohawks had four wide-open opportunities for setups in the early minutes of the game, blew them all away, and thereafter took long chances to get points. The Old Rose squad took advantage -of the flustered Mo- hav/ks, and found holes in the defense before it could get set. That just a'oo'Jt tells the story. There'll probably be some new faces among the starters Tuesday night, however. Howard Gorman, husky sophomore, is in line for a try ;t center, according to Coach J. A. "Judge" Grimsley's latest plans, with L?land Huff moving to a starting job at forward, while Wayne Wood and Harold McKenzy again draw the defensive as- signrr.ents.

Rebound Starts String. Muehe tipped in a rebound on Robert "Boob" Cavanauglr's attempt to start his string, added a point on a free toss, and counted three more as Don Duffy fouled him under the basket and he connected on both the bucket and the free chance. He boitoced in another pair of rebounds to add up 10 points, as Cyril "Babe" Ziegler tried a pair of sideline shots. Ziegler pulled the score up as he conducted another personal spree, good for six points. He slipped in a bucket from the free throw circle just as the whistle ended the first period, to put the Northsiders ahead by 12 to 5,'took the ball from the second-quarter tipoff and rifled the net from the east sideline, and dropped in a pair of free throws as Girsch fouled him.

A sensational uphill fight to overcome a 13-point lead, and a last- quarter lejt^own after they had the ball game almost written in the books as a victory provided a big night of basketball as St. Joseph's Johawks lost 30 to 29 to Our Lady of Victory academy of Waterloo Sunday. The Johawks were behind 17 to 4 a minute after the second half got under way. With two and one- half minutes to go before the final whistle, they had a 27 to 22 lead- end just ahead of the last toot, Tom Peterson flipped in a long basket to leave his squad down by a single point. Free Tosses Win. Fouls and free throws provided the points that gave the Waterloo squad the game.
