After hii marriage the tempo of his official life increased, but the Duke of York still had time to devote to the Boy Scout movement and similar projects .for the advancement of youth. His hobbies are that of an average man and hi» favorite indoor recreation, is to relax in a comfortable armchair before the family hearth and read detective stories. (The End.) BE^GAZETTE CECIL, PALACE PICTURE INTRODUCES NEWCOMER Gladys George, a newcomer to the screen world, appears in her film debut, "Valiant Is the Word for Carrie," which plays Friday at the Cecil and Palace theaters. This is the type of picture which is warm,-human, appealing to aL audiences. It is the story of a bad woman of a small town, who forsakes her careless ways for two youngsters who touch her heart as no man SUTER HITS HOT STREAK AT RICE Mason Cityan Counts List of 12 Points, 10 in Final Period. HOUSTON, Tex., (/?)— The Rice Owls and Drake's battling basketball team will meet for the second time here Thursday with the Owls seeking' revenge for a previous 39 to 38 defeat administered by the lowans. Joe Lisek's long field goal in the final minute gave Drake its victory, after the visitors overtook Rice at the start of the second half only to go behind again with one minute remaining. Bud Suter, diminutive forward, scored 12 points, 10 in the final period, for'the Bulldogs. Hal Trosky Bangs Mates Home With 162 Counters Yanks Get New Season's* Game Record for Runs Batted Across. CHICAGO, — Despite the CAGERS BATTLE OLD ROSE TEAM (Continued From Sport Pat p :) calculations is the fact that Harold McKenzy has been troublec by a corn, between his toes and had the tender spot removed on Wednesday. He will probably be ready to start, however. Waterloo West has polished off two warmup opponents, Orange township and Dunkerton, this season and lost to Marshalltown in its latest start, when Kenneth Oleson missed the second oi' two free throws after the final gun, leaving the score tied at 16-16. The Bobcats went on io win, 19 to 16, in the added period. GRAPPLERS SET TO SCRAP EAST (Continued From Sport Pa^e) the boys who helped wir. a year ago. Kenneth Kuttler, who was an 85-pounder last season, will return; Ervin Kressley, long-bodied 95-pounder of last reason, has moved up a notch, and Fred Lindholm, 125-pounder, will wrestle the same weight.

As a matter of fact, the champion, Hal Trosky of Cleveland, did his best to set a mark in the winning. His total of 162 runners driven across the plate is the low* est since 1929, when Al Simmons lopped the circuit with 157. Otherwise, though, the American league sluggers were in fine ettle, with the world champion Yankees setting the pace. The Ne_w Yorkers themselves batted in 995 runs for a new major league record, shattering their own mark in 991, which was posted in 1931. On their way to the season standard, they toppled the record for the most runs batted in in a single game, hammering 25 runners home against the Athletics on May 24. The former mark was' 23, set by the A's in 1929, Lou Gehrig was the leader in the Yanks' path-cleaning activities with 152 scores sent in, but he wa joined above the century mark bj Joe DiMaggio, 125; Tony Lazzeri 109, and Bill Dicgey and Georg Selkirk, each with 107. This, too is a record. Eight clubs share the former mark of having had four players better 100. Gehrig, DiMaggio and Lazzen each derived some additional personal glory from the carnage, also Lou went into a tie with Al Simmons in the number of consecutive seasons in which he topped the century mark in driving in runs. Each has a string of 11. Simmons, whose streak was broken in 1935, performed the feat agaii last season for a lifetime total ol 12, within one of Babe Ruth's all- time high of 13. Meantime. Goose Goslin brought his total to 11 by scoring 125 mates. The threat to a Ruthian record was bettered by Gehrig, who drove in over 150 runs for the sixth time in his career, tying the Babe's mark. DiMaggio, on June 24, drove in five runs to tie the American League record for the most runs batted in by an individual in one inning, and Lazzeri, in that -May game with Philadelphia, accounted for 11 runs to break the old league •ecord of nine, set by Jimmy Foxx * n 1933.

K. , Your reviewer heard not a solitary note of dissatisfaction voiced following the opening Wednesday night at the high school auditorium of "Minstrel Monarchs," revival of the Elks' 1 charity show which used to be an annual affair. Highlights of the combination minstrel and musical revue are many, but "the ones you'll probably remember the longest- are Roy Washburn's performance as an end-man in the minstrel and as one of the "masculine women" in a sketch of the revue; Alvin and Colleen Bartholomew, youngsters whose combined ages would fall several short of the total required for voting, with their show Luther Wilts, Loses to Eau Claire Squad EAU CLAIRE, Wis., (/P)—The Luther college basketball team of Decorah wilted before a second half Eau Claire Teachers' scoring drive here Wednesday night, dropping a 32 to 22 game. Auburn Eleven Says State to Win Game AUBURN, Ala., (;P)—Auburn football coaches and players 'installed Louisiana state Thursday as a slight favorite to beat Santa Clara in the New Year's Sugai Bowl game at New Orleans. Auburn lost only to these teams this year and was the one team, met by both contenders. The Cati- fornians handed the Plainsmen their first defeat, winning 12 to 0 at San Francisco. L. S. U. won 1! to 6, at Birmingham. While the majority leaned toward Louisiana, none figured the undefeated southeastern conference champions. would have any picnic riding the once-beaten Broncos from the coast. Cincy Reds List Big Bunch of Road Tilts CINCINNATI, (/?)—Warren C. Hies, general manager of the Cincinnati Reds, announced Thursday he had scheduled 29 spring exhibition games for the club dur- ng the 1937 training season.

Including an intermission, the entire performance lasts less than an hour and three quarters. There are 50 persons in the cast, and each one of them deserves plenty erf credit for the success of'the show. The man to whom a lion's share of the applause is due will probably go unnoticed by the major portion of the audience. He is Georgre L. Stevens, production manager with the John B. Rogers company, Chicago, 111. He's worked night and day to get the show to the point that it would click the way it did Wednesday night. Remember, every penny of the net proceeds goes into the Elks' charity fund to be used in aid- ng the needy here in Mason City tliis winter.
