That's what's scheduled for Mason City on Tuesday night, as Austin's Scarlets play Mason City's Mohawks. The basketball game will bring together Dick Arney's state champion Minnesota quintet of last season and J. A. "Judge" Grimsley's defending Iowa titleholders. The Minnesotang will send a veteran team, with six regulars from last season available, into action at Mason City. Clear Record Put Up. The clear 1935-36 record of the Mohawks, unmarred in seven contests, will again be at stake. Austin's roll of games this season is not so impressive, but the fact remains that the Scarlets have won four games and dropped another only after a long road trip into Iowa City. The Little Hawks at the university city beat Austin 31 to 24, on what was apparently the hottes. night they have struck since the made Mason City go through an BE AZETTE S Features in Heavy Program for Week on Court I overtime period to win there last spring. The Iowa City gymnasium, with cramped playing quarters, and a deceptive overhanging race track around the court, is also hard on ·visiting teams. A night after beating Austin, the Iowa City preps went to Vinton and took a 26 to 23 licking in a rough contest. Beat Four Teams. The Scarlets opened their season by beating Logan of Lacrosse, Wis., 34 to 11, and continued by whack- and one Central lost 20 to 17, Rochester, 23 to 15, and the Carieton freshmen, who GAY FARNSWOKTH GOPHERS BEATEN^ BYKEOGANTEAM Irish Take Narrow Victory Over Minnesota Cagers in Early Season.

The barrel-chested Kansan, 26 and rapidly nearing the age when athletes are called "old," believes he has yet to reach his peak--this despite his 4:06.7 at Princeton in 1934 to establish the world mile record, and 4:08.4 in the Madison Square Garden the same year to set the indoor mile standard.

Art Hanson and Ike Atwood will be two of the front-line veterans ·who will likely be in the starting lineup here Tuesday night, while Nolan Dugan will hold the center position, and Oscar Anderson teams ·with Gay Farnsworth or Ray Stromer at guard. There's no need to remind Mason City fans that the Mohawks lost one of the most heartbreaking ball games of the season to Austin last winter. The Scarlets won 18 to 17 without a field goal during the entire first half. Play Cautious Game. Minnesota's Maroon and Gold cagers were playing a cautious defensive battle. When the Gophers did get hold of the ball, they would not take many chances from back or mid-court but would work the ball up to a position for a shot from a few feet within the basket. Notre Dame's Irishmen shot from all over the floor during the first half but failed to connect for any goals. The half ended 11 to 6 with Minnesota in the lead, much to the surprise of even the Gophers' fans. Coach Keogan, evidently nettled at his proteges' anaemic scoring ability, started his first stringers as the second half opened. Included in the lineup were the three sophomore stars, Moir, Meyer and Nowak and it later proved to be this same trio which accounted for Minnesota's downfall. Find Ring Far Out. After five minutes of listless basketball in which Minnesota retained its strictly defensive play, while Notre Dam e could not break through the Gopher defense, the Hoosiers finally accomplished this as the Mohawks had the edf nearly everything but the ·e in free throwing department. The Mason Cityans made a single gift shot and missed a half dozen others, while their opponents were capitalizing on 8 chances at the free throw line. Art Hanson, Atwood. and Anderson played in the contest that saw Mason City lose last season.

Responding to their followers' cries, the Gophers inaugurated a comeback in the closing minutes of play which was cut off only by the timer's run.

PURDUE HOOPERS LOOK FOR CROWN Boilermakers Only Champ Outfit of Last Season to Escape Loss. By WILLIAM WEEKES. Associated Press Sports Writer. CHICAGO, Jan. 6. (J)--It's up to Purdue now to uphold the defending Big Ten basketball chamipon group, a task that proved too large for Illinois and Wisconsin in their opening starts. The Boilermakers, who share the title with Wisconsin and Illinois, will be called upon to conquer Ohio State at Columbus, in order to salvage anything in the way of opening date honors for the 1935 top flight trio. Wisconsin had the opportunity at Columbus Saturday night, but proved far from equal to the job. The Buckeyes won the ball game, 44 :o 23, to demonstrate that they will oe factors in the race. The highly ·egarded Badger defense fell apart before the slick passing of Warren Whitlinger, Ohio scoring ace. and his mates, while the Buckeyes permitted only six field goals.

Tomorrow night Grinnell slops at Tulsa for a game with Tulsa University before returning home to prepare for another Valley contest with Washington at Grinnell Saturday night.
