L'lL ABNER Victory on Foreign Court Will Raise Hopes for Title CHICAGO, Janr ji_lU!_Sup- porters of llic once-defeated I l l i - nois basketball team will find out lomorrow what chance their favorites have to bring home the liijj Nine cage title denied the postwar "Whiz Kids" last year. The basket-popping l l l i n i face Minnesota, a twice-defeated title favorite which has yet to win a Icnguc game, at Minneapolis before one of the most partisan crowds in the loop. And if Illinois can win this one, it will have a chance to start the last half of the campaign on even terms with the league-leading Wisconsin five. Illinois, which romped through seven straight games without defeat before conference play began, lost its Big Nine opener to the Badgers. Since then it has defeated Northwestern and Ohio State to move into a tic for second place with Iowa. A victory over Minnesota would leave Illinois in second place, but it would indicate that the lllini can win their share of league games on strange floors, and it would give the Marry Combes five a chance lo move into a tie with Wisconsin Jan. 24.

I struggled up out of the depths and lay there blinking at the bright sunshine and finally realized that it was daytime and that the telephone beside my bed was ringing. I lifted the receiver and said, "Hello." "Miss Donn?" "Yes." "This is Madge. Narney. Are you going to be at home this morning? I--I want to see you." I was more than a little surprised.

It was Madge, of course. ''Come in," 1 invited. -"I haven't had breakfast, yet. Ferhaps you'd join me?" She looked at me nervously and hesitated. Then, "All right. Tnat will be fine." We went down the-stairs and into the kitchen that was golden with bright sunshine and I attached the toaster and measured four cups of water and four tablespoons of coffee into the glass coffee maker and turned to Madge.

For one who had been so eager to talk to me, she seemed oddly reluctant to begin. She twisted ner gloves in her hands. Her face was quite pale. "Who was here last night, Miss Donn? I mean while Avis Vaughn and Art Cleves were here?" I told her, adding, "Weren't] their names in the papers?" . "Yes-- but I thought there might have been someone else, too." sne looked me full in the face for tne first time. "Are you sure, Miss Donn. that there was no one else iiere 'all evening? Nobody, who stopped in for just a few minutes, maybe, when they 'were passing by?" Or something like that." ' Her words brought Jimmy Peters to my mind; and his skulking around outside the night before. And I thought I saw light. This girl was interested in Jimmy-- and she was jealous. That must be it. She knew about the crush he had OR Avis, and she thought he'd been here with Avis last, night. " T assure you, there was no one else here, Miss Narney. Not while Avis and Art were here. Jimmy Peters was here later-- but that v.-as after the accident." j I thought I had guessed right. She seemed instantly relieved. She. took the cup of coffee I offered her and a piece of toast and some marmalade and began to cat as if she hadn't had any breakfast cither. Having eaten me out ol groceries, she apologized again for bothering me and left and I was free to go back to sleep. I decided to finish my nap in the patio which was awash with warm noon sunshine by this time. * $ s I awoke to look straight into as cool and noncommittal a pair ot grav eves as I have ever seen.
