IOWA CITY, Feb. 20.--Haughty and humble of Western conference Basketball--Northwestern, pace-set- :er, nnd Iowa, trailer--merge their efforts here Saturday evening to escort the Hawkeye home Big Ten serleu Into oblivion. Northwestern, upset only by Illinois, has taken seven victories, averaged 30 points a game, and Is the possessor of Joe Reiff, the sophomore forward whose 87 points make him the league's leading scorer. On paper, there seems to be no reason why the Hawkeyes should dare to aspire to victory over the tall, fast and clever Wildcat athletes. Iowa has lost six of eight games, is physically inferior, ant] has no crack shots. But the team came within two field goals of boating Illinois two days before that quintet sheared Northwestern's winning streak with a seven-point triumph. The defense which blocked and hectored Wisconsin shooters has given the team confidence and the suspicion that a repetition of such tactics will make Reiff, Riel and McCarnes consider- ablv miserable. Mike Riegert, best Hawkeye guard, has been elected as close companion for Reiff on tho visitor's travels towards the basket. Northwestern's men, however, average six feet. 1 inch in height, and the shorter lowans anticipate trouble on rebound shots. CHECKRR CHAMP TO DEFEND TITLE ESTHERVILLE, Feb. 20.--The outstanding checker players of the state have entered the state tournament which will be held here Feb. 23-25. John Samuelson of Des Moines, present Iowa champion; Will Cook of Ocheyednn, president of the state organization; George S. Jennings of Fort Dodge, five times winner of the event; Lloyd Bltlle of Iowa Falls, Henry Mitchell of Waterloo and Manly Bascum of Oko- bojl have entered the meet.

Glen "Kid" Lehr, flashy lightweight of Waterloo, was signed Thursday to meet Glen Musselman, Fort Dodge, for one of the R round bouts of the 40 round card scheduled for the armory Thursday, Feb. 26. "Kid" Lehr won a warm spot in .he hearts of north Iowa boxing fans here in the last show when lie easily won a decision from Gordon Stewart of Dowa. "Kid" Lehr, who is listed as the est lightweight in this section of :he country, has defeated Hymie Wiseman 3 times, has decisions over such fighters aa "Ace P.lude" of 3es Moinea and Putt Mossman of Iowa Falls and has fought Tony Le- rotiri and many other good lightweights in the territory. Hfs opponent, Glen Musselnian, defeated Carl Nelson, Au.stin, Minn., lore in the fast show and has convinced Matchmaker Joe Kelley of he American Legion drum corps ·hat he is ready for faster company. He fought a draw with the highly touted Ernie North at Fort Dodge Monday night. Both boys have fought draw bouts with Ernie North and they want ;o decide the better man of the two. Indications are this will be the stellar attraction on the card. Roy Bates, local "battle royal king," will act as master of ceremonies in the big battle, when six lusky Negroes will strive to win tho $10 in merchandise. The matchmaker is now busy arranging the other bouts of the 40 round card. Wold Sectional Mat Meets at 4 Schools AMES, Feb. 20. (UP)--Four scc- .lonal wrestling meets are being leld over the week-end to precede the Iowa High School Athletic association meet which will be held at Iowa State college Feb. 27-28. The sectional meets will be held at Mt. Vernon, Cresco, Fort Dodge · Orient. Mayor Curley of Boston says that he is going to find a way so that new paving won't have to he ripped ip just about as .soon as it is laid. Some seven or eight hundred other cities will await on that discovery. --Portland Express. Lion's Share of Firsts IOWA CITY, Feb. 20.--The Brit iah system of scoring, that of count ing only first places, might boost the University of Minnesota to a victory over the University of Iowa at Minneapolis Saturday in the first dual indoor track and field meet between the institutions since 1922. For the Hawkeyes may yield seven of the 12 first places to the Gophers. They look to team balance --and the American 5-3-1 scoring process--to annex about eight seconds and six thiras and to trap their adversaries by a margin of from four to 10 points. Gophers IlutRd Strong. Minnesota appears much stronger than Chicago--Iowa's rival vanquished last week 50 to 30--with power concentrated on the dash, mile, two mile, high and low hurdles, shot put, and high jump. The Iowa dope sheet reveals prob- nble victories in the quarter, half, broad jump, pole vault, and mile re- 'ay, with a strong chance for upsets in the half mile and high hurdles. Bank on Gordon. Capt. John Hass of Minnesota and Edward Gordon of Iowa seem likely io dispute high scoring honors, unless a leg injury hinders Hass' work. The MInnesotan fa a crack sprinter low hurdler and broad jumper, while Gordon looks unbeatable in the broad j u m p and has a fair chance to win the high jump and high hurdles. A motor caravan Friday bore 23 athletes to Minneapolis. This is the squad roster: Conway, Hubbard, Albin, Gordon, Handorf, Bryant, Wilier, Stor3', Sansen, Mossey, Canby, Albright, Ferguson, Lagerqulst, Hoskinson, Beckner, Isaacs, Miller, Skowbo, Tennant, Trott, Wickey and Gunderson. ROCKNE'S OTHER SIDE SHOWS HIS HUMAN KINDNESS Scandinavian Irish Master Is "Just Another" Husband. EDITOR'S NOTEt This is another of a series of stories on tho llttlo. known sldo of prominent sport personalities. By PAUL MICKELSON. SOUTH BEND, Ind., Feb. 20. OP --Once Knute Rockne gets on the football field, he's all football. But away from all the tumult and shouting he's just a great, big moody soul, who likes to gossip and chatter and who would walk a mile to play a joke or get a hearty laugh. J He will take time out from his busiest day--and he is a man of a thousand duties at Notro Dame--to swap repartee with newspapermen, college presidents, coaches or a book agent. He yearns to learn all about their trades and fancies and keeps them in good humor with, a good stock of jokes. ·lust Another Husband. At home he ia just another husband. When he wants to get away, at night, he makes excuses to Bonnie (Mrs. Rockne). But when at home, his personal- ty dominates the household just as it does a football field. He has threo sona and one daughter, ranging be- Lween the ages of six and 14 years. He wants at least one of his sons to follow in his footsteps. When "Rock" doesn't have the house full of guests--and he can play a mean bridge game--or wheu he doesn't caper about with hia children, he sinks into a deep chair and reads. Biographies are nis first choice, closely followed by medical books and mystery stories. He can pronounce and tell you tho meaning- of 10-syllable medical terms; and he can tell you some facts about music and drama and art. Proud of Ancestry. He is proud of his Norwegian ancestry and admits he got one of the biggest chuckles when .Eddie Nell of the Associated Press onca referred to him as the "Scandinavian master of the Irish." HE has spent considerable money tracing his lineage. Ha discovered that back in the fourteenth and fifteenth, centuries, his forebeara were men of money. Two were keepers of the Norwegian treasury. "Now that's what I can't understand," he murmured. "Thare used to be a lot of money in the family. Where did It go?" His favorite dish, however, Isn't Norwegian. It's spare ribs and sauerkraut. His bust stories concern the early, trials he went thru na football coach at Notra Dame. "We had a hard timo getting games," he said, "and as receipts were small the boys were ordered to cat sandwiches. Believe- it Or Not. "Tho first time we played tho Army, the Cadets invited the boy.i In to eat. And did they eat? They stuffed us so full of pie, cake ancj ice cream that we could hardly wobble in the football field. Wa were almost ruined." Psychology, humor and sympathy characterize Rockne on the bench. He "rides" quitters, praises workers and takes down the "grand stand" type.
