Liz Lcydcn. my unpleasant collaborator, suggested a small party at my place that evening when ho would try to talk Avis into changing her mind. On the way home, I stopped at Ra\clla's shop lo pick up the special lipstick she had made for me.

I decided then to keep my mouth shut for the time being, anyway. He was buttering the bait for Avis. \nd she swallowed it. It wasatj long until he had her believing that to play the part of the sister as well as "that of the wife would ically detract from her big role. Then I suggested giving Jeff a loig and having him join us, "Since "everything is settled." ,Avis bridled at this for a moment. But she gave in. While we waited for Jeff I went down to the kitchen and made some coffee and fixed up a tray v-ith some crackers and sliced cheese and stuffed olives.

I offered him a cigarcl and asked him if he'd like to mix thc drinks. "I'm not too good at that sort of thing." He said, "Sure."

CHICAGO, Jan. 12--OJB--De- fending champion Wisconsin and challenging Iowa match undefeated Big Nine basketball records, and two of the league's top scorers, at Madison tonight in a standout clash of the week-old Western Conference cage season. The title-defending Badgers have won three straight league w-i.ivii.~i-~.--, 111., Jan. l^J. (U,P.)--Collinsville climbed into the top perch in the weekly Ijnited Press rating of 'downstate'"prep basketball teams today as the "top 15" took one of the roughest shakeups of the season. The one-two positions were merely reversed, with Collinsville changing places with Pekin, leader in the last two ratings. But there were more drastic changes farther down the line. La Grange, for example, tumbled from third to eighth, and Decatur slipped from 10th to 15th. Canton 1 ' and Duadee were pushed clear out of the first fifteen and replaced by Galesburg and Glenbard. " Salem advanced from eighth tp third on the basis of impressive wins over Fairfield and Mt. Vernon. and Robinson climbed from ninth to fifth. 11 Straight Wins Pekin's loss of the top spot was almost inevitable after it dropped a surprise decision to Streator last Friday. 52 to 51.

The Orphans took the Bull Dogs, 67 lo 48, at Centralia Friday night and Marion kocked off the local boys, 52 to 40, in the Harrisburg gym the following evening. Harrisburg had defeated Marion, 57 to 51, in an earlier game at Marion but it was not the same Bull Dog team on the floor Saturday night. The local lads displayed a poor passing game and let a rushing Marion quintet break up their attack time to time. Cummins Bottled Up The only time the game was close was in the final minutes of the first half and in the first couple of minutes of the third per- Marion completely bottled up Herb Cummins, Harrisburg scoring ace, and the fact that they could do this probably accounted for the 12-point difference in the score. Harrisburg was really adept at making its free shots Saturday night The boys sank only 12 field goals all night but they did jonnect with 16 out of 25 free .hrow attempts. Marion sank 20 caskets from the field. of the game in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, when Marion held a 10-point lead. i Buckner High Scorer Vinson, Brown, Cummins, Jones and VanderPluym were the Harrisburg starters and Coach Virgil Wilson of Marion started Buckner, who was high scorer of the evening with 16, Mazurek, Cagle, Connell and Hill. Coach Ralph Davison used ten men during the game but Wilson used only two substitutes. Vinson started the scoring at the outset of the contest with a field goal, but Marion tied up the contest.
