Although t h e co-champions, Minnesota arid Illinois, both were well-balanced'teams, neither could offer two men" strong enough to push outstanding stars from Purdue, Michigan and Ohio State off the first team.

Greatest in Years. From the first game of the season, in which he scored 27 points against Wisconsin, Young was considered the greatest forward the conference has seen in several years. He hit his peak against Illinois, dumping in 29 points' to lead th'e rout of the champions. Harry Combes, too, asserted his greatness early in the campaign. Injured early in the year, Combes finally returned .to condition after the.Illini lost their first game and from; there on the championship always was within reach. John Townsend of Michigan is the odd man. He wasn't the best center in the conference, nor the best forward. Yet he lacked a single vote at being,a unanimous selection on the- strength of his versatile play. Reigel Leads Regulars. Bob-Reigel of Illinois, probably was the finest regular center in the conference. He was placed on the second team. 'Without- Marty Rolek, Minnesota might not have captured its first share of the title since 1919. He was the key man in, the Bert .defense' in the league.

Movie stars don't resemble their screen likeness. Sometimes you run on a photo, which taken off guard, really doesn't look much like them." "I enjoyed 'Stolen Holiday' not because of a very improbable plot, .but .because .Kay. Francis knows how to act, as well as look utterly devastating in clothes. Ah! What clothes! Alison Sklpworth always good and the eccentric Claude Rains with his hair combed to make him seem taller."--Mrs, H. R. H., Clear Lake. To Miss N.
