Back home to their old positions, that is, using a revised offensive plan that looked like a million dollars. Capt. Everett Fletcher, who proved that he is forward, Texas League Boss to Run Sioux City's Team SIOUX CITY, (.•?) — Ernest '•Dutch" Lorbeer, former manager of the Beaumont club in the Texas league, will manage the Sioux City Western league baseball team next season.

Sheldon Jaysees Win in Cherokee Contest CHEROKEE, (&> —Sheldon Junior college broke a 12 point deadlock in the second quarter and ran up a 39 to 27 victory over Cherokee here Tuesday night. Veenker, Sheldon center, led the scoring with 13 points. Hampton High Victor in Two Cage Battles SHEFFIELD — Hampton high school's boys won twc basketball decisions here Tuesday night, beating Sheffield's first team 40 to 3 and the reserves. 24 to 7. The local girls routed the visitors, 41 to 10. rathcr than a center, and Jack Wallace, who showed that he is a basket-shooting marksman, rather than a passer, were back in their old front-line assignments. Wallace found the hoop for three baskets and five assorted free throws, while Fletcher connected on a pair of goals and added another free chance. Not to be forgotten, either, are a couple of husky youngsters who made their first start as top-flight basketball plr.yers Tuesday night, and turned in a couple of good jobs. Fred Stoecker handled his big brother's old center assignment in pretty neat fashion, and worked in a for ward-pivot position under the goals like a veteran, while Harold McKenzy p r o- duced five points as he played a neat guard game. There w a s never much '"• doubt about the FLETCHER class of the Moha'.vks in Tuesday's game. The visiting Tigers got a shot, at the east goal to start things, after John Skov got hold of the first tipoff, but the Mohawks grabbed the rebound and zipped in a bucket before the Tigers got their defense set. Wayne Wood went under the west goal for a clean setup as Fletcher passed off to him from a center-pivot spot. The score moved up to 4-4 during the first period, but the Mohawks got in front on Stoecker's "fall-away" shot. They made it 8 to 4 as Fletcher missed a setup after a perfect pickoff play, and McKenzy stretched up to bat the ball back and in. Tigrcrs Get One. The Tigers scored only once from scrimmage in the second oe- riod, as their slight height advantage became apparent under the basket. Capt. Bob Johnston tipped the ball in after ti had slip- oed off the backboard three times. During the same period. Wallace had found the goal with a one- hand pivot shot out of a corner, and with a setup off Fletcher's pass and block. Johnston scored a single goal during the third period, while free throws pulled the score up to 20 to 12. The Tiger captain counted on a one-hand shot as he drove straight in at the.basket Johnston left the game on personal fouls late in the same quarter. Free Throws Help. Free chances also helped Mason City, since Fletcher's pivot shot from the free throw circle was the only basket in the Mohawk side of the book. Fletcher and Wallace slapped in two more goals to get the final quarter under way, and it was left to Walter Bennett, Tiger guard, to provide most of the entertainment ALBERT LEA—Hi s: .lohnslf'ii t'f ... r' f .......

NEW YORK, CT)—From the bantamweights to the heavyweights, the fight business is showing signs of new life. The heavies have been holding ][ j the headlines for the last few weeks, with the talk of a Jimmy Braddock-Joe Louis no-decision bout at Atlantic City; the hullabaloo over the final signing of Braddock to defend his crown against Max Schmeling, Louis' quick knockout of Eddie Simms. However, champions and contenders are keeping things moving in four other divisions. The middleweights are next on the program with Harry Balsamo, the ''belting brakeman" who wu* considered a great title prospect until he was beaten by Babe Risko, meeting Brooklyn's Solly Krieger at the Hippodrome.

Current plans, however, call for the winner to face Fred Apostoli, the highly regarded San Francisco middleweight who is due in New York shortly after the holidays, with the survivor o* that match to encounter Champion Freddie Steele, also due to head east early in 1937. The heavyweights move into the picture again Friday when big Ray Impellittiere of Cold Spring, N. Y., faces Bob Pastor in a bout billed for the New York state title.

They were trying to write Robert Moses Grove, slender Boston southpaw, out of the diamond picture as a has-been two years ago, but "Lefty" still has the scoffers eating their words. Slumping to' the foot of the list in 1934 after a fine career, Grove rallied in 1935 to top the league, and during the past 1936 American league season he easily held his place at the head of the field with an earned-run average of 2.81. He appeared in 35 games, winning 17 and losing 12, and gave 237 hits to 963 batters in 253 innings. He was in 1936, as in the previous season, the only one of 66 pitchers working in 45 or more innings to allow less than three runs a game. It was the seventh time in 12 seasons he has been under the three-run mark, and the seventh time he has led the league. The runnerup to Grove was a youngster who blazed a brilliant trail through the league in the later stages, young Bob Feller of Cleveland. Feller,..who pitched in the relatively small total of 62 innings, worked 14 games and won five against two defeats. Whiffs One in Three, He pitched to 227 batters and whiffed 76, or approximately one out of three. The 17-year-old lad, in his first season, tied Dizzy Dean's single game strikeout record by fanning 17 Philadelphia batters on Sept 13. He had previously whiffed 15 St. Louis battevs on Aug.. 23 and 10 more on Sept 6, gixing him 25 strike-outs against the Browns in two appearances.
