Allison (Carlton). v IOWA CITY, Jan. 31.--Once again the ancient motive of revenge will inspire a University of Iowa athletic team when the basketball men Monday evening play the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis. The Hawheyes, however, are hardly sanguine of Victory, for the offense will be robbed of its po- tenpy by the absence of the key man, Al Rogers, the big center who has been downed by influenza. Both of his replacements, Erbe and Ahrens, are totally unacquainted ,;With conference competition. Not since Jan. 19 have the lowans played a basketball game, and their drills during the past week have been disrupted by examinations. The other regulars are in good shape, however, and an upset is possible if the Gopher guards permit many shots at the basket. Penetration of the Minnesota defense for short and medium*"attempts is the aim of the lowans, and they also will bank on the passing speed of the forward combinations. Williamson, leading Iowa scorer in Big "Ten games, is expected to lead the attack. Minnesota's long shooting brot a 26 to 22 victory in .the season's first game at Iowa City Jan. 10, the frequent Iowa rallies falling short because of faulty trials for goals.

Feb. 2.

The elder of the two golfing Espinosas mastered tho difficult Brackenridge park course with rounds of 69-74-60-69--281 to beat out his closest rivals, Harry Cooper. Frank Walsh and Joe Turnesa, by two strokes. Attraction:! Kxplodo. While Abe waa coining up from far back to capture · the big prize, the gallery attractions spent tho day exploding all over the course. Densmore Shute, dapper defending chamnion from Columbus, Ohio; Harry Cooper, young Chicago star. and Joe Turnesa of Ehnsford, N.

All alone at 285 was John Golden, the sturdy Stamford, Conn.. shooter. His brilliant 68 on the final round, the lowest score of the day. pulled him out o( p. hole.

A light-haired, skinny looking chap, the Illinois A.

There will be at least five clashes between American runners and foreign invaders.
