UPPER IOWA MAY CAUSE UPSET IN CLOSING CLIMAX Feature Game of Week to Be State Teachers-Parsons Battle. DES MOINES, Feb. 18. f. 1 ?)--Central, and Luther colleges, favorites to lead the 14 Iowa conference teams to the finish in their 1931 basketball title race, continued theii winning ways this week as they brushed aside two formidable challengers. 9 The Dutchmen, with a string of 22 consecutive circuit victories during two seasons behind them, hung a 40 to 27 defeat on Iowa Wesleyan while Luther for the second time this year beat State Teachers, 27 to 17. . ' Play Orthodox Ball. The games, played Monday, were orthodox in that the Flying Dutchmen again demonstrated their unmatched offensive power which has enabled them to average 39.1 points in winning 10 straight loop struggles this year, and Luther displayed its unmatched defense which has held its 10 opponents to an average of 18.2 points a contest. Each of the teams has five more games to play before they run into each other for the second time this year In a March 9 battle at Pella. Luther engages the first two of its remaining opponents in meeting Buena Vista at Story Lake Friday and Western Union at LeMars Saturday. Neither appears strong enough to penetrate the stout Norse defense. Central also goes into action Friday, meeting Simpson at Indianola. The Dutchmen vanquished Simpson IS to 21 in their first conference jame of the season. While they lave followed that contest with nine other victories, Simpson has lost six more while winning but three. Luther vs. Tipper Iowa. Both,the leaders also go into action next week. On Tuesday Luther neets the Upper Iowa quintet which las won six out of seven games at Decorah. On Wednesday, Central en- ages the eight-times beaten Penn five at Oakaloosa. On Saturday, lUther entertains St. Ambrose at Decorah and Central is host to Parsons at Pella. The week preceding the important tentral-Luther game at Pella, Harch 9, the Dutchmen made a :rip into northwest Iowa similar to that booked by Luther this weekend. Central engages Western Union at LeMars March 2 and - Buena Vista at Storm Lake March 3. Luther's activities that week will )Q confined to a battle with Columbia at Decorah March 6. The feature game this week;, aside from those involving the pace- getting teams, involves State Teacru era and Parsons at Falrfield Friday. Tutors Build Defense. Each has won five of its eight james during which they have flashed almost identical offensive strength. Parsons has scored 250 points in its eight games while Teachers amassed 249. The Tutors boast the better defense with a total of 185 points scored by eight opponents against 247 tallied against the Wildcats.

SPORT SCRAPS THE features of Rodney P. Lien re- 1 cently blazed forth in'the sports section of the Minneapolis Tribune, drawn in charcoal and ink. He rated the "Strange as it Seems" cartoon by John Hix. And all because this truth may be said of him--"Prior Lien is cashier o f : the Northwest Savings Bank of Mason City, Iowa." This is the first instance in which a Mason Cityan has been selected for this particular form of distinction. « * * * AND STRANGE AS IT MAY SEEM THIS APPEARED ON FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH. * * * A MONG other items brot to the at- ·£"»· tention of the connoisseur of tnc scrap heap is a correction offered by Millard M. Brooks, manager oC the Hayfield Red Devils. The Kanawha independent basket- ball team, according to Mr. Brooks was defeated by the Hayfield team 2-0 thru forfeit on Jan. 27. Late iri the second half, he states with Hayfield leading 21 to 20, the captain of the Kanawha team took his men from the floor and gave the game to Hayfield. It was stated in an item recently that Knnawha had won 17 out of IS games played and that Klemme was the only team to beat the Kahawha five. It would appear that Kanawha did not consider the game "played." » * * "THE FIGHT WITHOUT A HOME" HAS AT LAST COMB TO A NEAR SETTLEMENT. CHICAGO APPEARS AS THE HOME AND JUNE 19 THE DATE. The good die young, if they are resolutions.--Oi! City Derrick. Cue Champ to Explain Art of Billiards Ralph Greenleaf Will Show Fancy Shots at Boyd's The sport world has produced many champions, great in their time and invincible, so it seemed, at theli- particular branch, or style of game. Such names as Dempsey, Hoppe, Jones, Ruth and Cobb are written Indelibly on the record books, and they are names to conjure with, standing for all that is greatest in competitive sport. Pocket billiards is a parlor, game in comparison to the roped arena, with its lethal wallops, the diamond and its homerun clot, but it is still a major indoor sport, and one that requires the utmost in skill, muscular co-ordination, and-nerve control. To stand head and shoulders for eleven" years over all your adversaries requires something other than luck. This Is the record o£ Ralph Greenleaf, holder of the world's record run of 126 balls, and this an unfinished run, at that. , Every year since 1919 he has held the title at some time or other, winning it consecutively from 1919 to 1925. In Stockton, California in 1922, he created an exhibition record of 265 balls, in an advertised and regularly refereed contest. In the Detroit tournament for the title in 1929 he finished his game in two innings, another record average of 62% balls an inning. Greenleaf will be at the Boyd billiard parlors Saturday afternoon and evening. CHARLES CITY IS VICTOR IN CLASH WITH DECORAH 5 Takes Lead in Northeast Conference With 14 to 12 Victory.
