FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 19 W3? :I IOWA TURNS TO STATE CONTESTS Wild Fight Impends in Loop After Tutors Win in Luther Contest. DBS MOINES, Feb. 19. (JB--Its championship hopes smothered by ' Purdue's 45 to 33 victory Saturday night, Iowa's basketball team henceforth will be working to give the Boilermakers unchallenged .possession of the title. Purdue went on a wild basket spree in the second half Saturday night to leave the'Hawkeyes flatfooted and bewildered. Iowa got off to a big lead at the start and looked like a winner when it held a 20 to 13 margin late in the first half. But when the intermission came, the HawKeyes had a meager 23 to 211 lead. '' Game in Rout. Coming back from the rest period with a series of unbelievable shots and battling for possession of the ball every minute, the Boilermakers changed the game into a rout; The Hawkeyes seemed to tire badly and were hopelessly outclassed all during the second period. A total of 13,200 fans, a new conference record, saw the game. With the last of the Big Ten title hopes gone, Iowa supporters can turn their attention to the wild Iowa conference fight. Iowa State Teachers complicated that race by down- in" T uther 36 to 24 Saturday night. St Ambrose and Iowa Wesleyan, remained in the thick of the battle with victories, the Saints defeating Columbia 3i to 27 while the Tigers ran wild against Dubuque university to win 61 to 25.

It was the first mid west conference defeat for the Carls since Coe beat them back in 1928 They had won 40 straight midwes sames during that time. Cornell Iowa's other midwest conference entry, lost to Beloit, 27 to 26.

CHICAGO, Feb. 19. UT)-- Grain prices went lower today largely owing to moisture relief for domestic wheat territory and because of uncertainty over administration plans for regulating commodity exchanges. ' Many traders said some authoritative announcement regarding the national grain exchange code would tend to dispel part of the uncertainty as to the trond of the market. The fact that sufficient surface moisture had been received in parts of the dry areas west and southwest was generally believed to have removed drought as a market influence for the immediate future.

Interest in th^ market was s u f f i c i e n t l y broad to Increase activity and the market 'turned listless on the decline. M u c h of the early selling was credited to houses with eastern and southwestern connections.
