Wolver inrs Score IS Goals From

(Special to The Daily)
By Sport< Editor, Daily Iowan
IOWA CITY, Jan. 14.--"We have hit
our stride this season in but one game
Po far--Syracuse-but we're going to
hit it again tonight," with this state-
ment this afternoon Coach Mather
established his reputation as a pro-
phet; with his team's defeat of Iowa
41 to 22 he showed his abilities as a
basketball coach and the Wolverine
aggregation displayed a form that, it
it was anything but a flash in the pan,
should make them more of a favorite
than ever in Western Conference
championship scramble honors.
Petrie, the boy who wasn't good
enough to rate the Wolverine first
string last year, got enough baskets
.this evening to tie for high scoring
honors with his team-mate Harrigan.
Each man counting five times from
the field. McConnell was high for
Iowa with seven counters.
Michigan, both on defense and of-
fense, out-distanced the Hawkeye ag-
gregation so far that it was pitiful.
Iowa had chances for short shots less
than a dozen times and their long
shots landed outside the iron hoop
a great many more times than they
swished the netting, falling through.
The Ann Arbor men had their bas-
ket eye working to perfection. All
kinds of shots-long, short, overhand,
and one hand push--dropped through
the magic circle with regularity. At
half time the invaders led 19 to 7.
The famed Iowa defense seemed to
be a lacking quantity of the evening.
As for the short pass offense-it was
"under cover" too, mostly because it
was of no use against the Wolverines.
Iowa's new half-million dollar field
house was dedicated tonight in conT
nection with the basketball game.
Before six thousand persons, the lar-
gest number ever to witness an indoor
sporting event here, five speakers,
including Governor Hammill, Maj.

sioner, and Pres. Walt'er A. Jessup

Coaches' Pay Small
The survey completed by the asso-

the college instructor is only from

and associate professors from $2,000
to $3,500 a year; and a full professors
from $2,300 to $4,000 a year, Dean
Randall reported.

The play is taken from "The House
of Fear," a novel by Wadsworth Camp,
and will be more elaborately staged
than any production given thus far
in the Mimes theater, it is said. Spe-1

that already installed in the theater,

LaFollette Attacks Kellogg
While characterizing the Nicaraguan
policy as unjustified and unconscion-
able Senator Lafollette, Republican,j
Wis., made a direct attack upon Sec-
retary Kellogg for giving to the coun-
try after his appearance before the
foreign relations committee Wednes-
day, what was termed "a vicious piece
of propaganda" designed to show that,
Russian Soviets are seeking to make
Mexico a base for attack against the
United States.
Representative Huddleston, Demo-
crat, Alabama, in reply, read an edi-I
torial describing Secretary Kellogg's
Bolshevist statement as "an indecent
intellectual exposure."
Renewing the discussion later,
Representative , Gilbert, Democrat,

of listening to the "call of the dollars,",



of the literary publication, "Secession,"
was speaking under the auspices of
the public speaking department on
the subject "A Theater For Us."
The speaker deprecated the tendencyI
on the part of dramatists to work:
with the theatrical element rather than
the dramatic, and pointed out in such
cases the lack of motivation or ex-
planation. He said that there should
be some coincidence between thesej
