CORDLE MAY BE IN LUTHER FIVE Mason Cityan Likely to Go Against Tutors for Saturday Tilt. DECORAH, Feb. 15--Aware of the fact that the outcome of their game with the Panthers of state Teachers here Saturday may determine whether or not they will win the Iowa conference title this season, the Luther Norso.jnen tire stressing defensive tactics this week in an attempt to porfrct a combination that can hold in check the powerful and rangy Tutor outfit. The return of Joedy Boyette, high scoring Kenselt forward, to the Norse lineup after an absence of several weeks, has given rise tc. considerably renewed hopes in the local camp. With Boyette back on the job the Luther machine should again have the scoring punch that has been so noticeably lacking of late. To offset this news, however, is the fact that Freddy Deines, brilliant Wakeenee, Kans., guard may be unable to participate in the game Saturday. Deines, who has played the most consistent game of any of the Norsemen thio season, and who has been called the cut- standing Luther candidate for all- conference honors, aggravated an old ankle injury in the Columbia game which may prevent him appearing In the Tutor tilt. Paired with Boyette at the other forward post will be Capt. Lloyd Holm, leading: Luther scorer, who will again be relied upon to carry the major share of the offensive burden, although Boyette and Deines will doubtless uphold their share as well. At the other guard post Adolph Belding, speedy Herman, Minn., eager, will liltcly assume his regular place, although there la a possibility that he may be placed upon the* bench in favor of either Rolf Wulfaberg, Decorah, or Harry Cordle, promising newcomer from Mason City. Wulfsberg's performance at Columbia, where his basket in the overtime period clinched the ·jame for Luther, and at Dubuque, have made him one of the most respected of the Norse offensive threats, while Cordle may be used in an effort to increase the average height of the Norsemen against the tall Panthers. ADDITIONAL SPORTS ON MARKET PAGE Last Stand in lozva Court Is Before Hawks IOWA CITY, Feb. 15.--The last three games on the home court, starting against the conference- leading Purdue quintet Saturday evening, now confront the University of Iowa basketball team. With every ticket sold Tuesday, a throng of more than 13,000 persons will set a new all-time Big Ten attendance record as the Hawkeyes attempt to win again from the Boilermakers, Indiana comes to the field house Monday and Minnesota is the last rival the following Saturday, Feb. 24. The Hawks will seek revenge on those teams, each of which pulled an upset on their own floors. Ilaxvks Not Out oj Kuce. Although they have lost 3 of 7 games, the lowaus figure that they cannot be counted out of the championship race. The even break against Purdue and Northwestern on the road trip shoved them into third place, but home victories over Purdue and Indiana would put the team in striking position again, especially if the Boilermakers should lose another and Illinois should falter. Hawkeye shooters apparently are hot and cold in Saturday and Mon clay games. Accuracy against Northwestern Monday was far below the team's average, for the mean for the other six conference games was 12 field goals, and only 8 were stink in the 35-20 defeat. Moffltt Moves Up. Howard Moffitt, with 65 points, has moved into fourth place among Big Ten scorers. He has 113 points for all games, topping Iowa point- makers. Second to Moffitt in conference games is John Barko, with 53 points, and Howard Bastinn is third with 47. Bastian has edged ahead of Barko for all games, 99 to 05. The Hawkeyes have made 52; points this season, from 20S field goals and 113 free throws--239 in conference games. Opponents are credited with 3B8 points, of which 212 were in Big Ten contests.

Coach Barker's squad, fresh-, enerl in spirits after its 37 to 3 walkaway over Forest City Tuesday, wilt enter the meet a strong contender for the title. Clarion and Eagle Grove will probably offer the strongest op- fs1tlon to the Red and Black squad.
