There's a big day planned for 2.000 North lowans, on Jan. 1, 1937 ... at least it sounds big! and funny! j The Kossuth County Conservation league is putting on a gun- less fox hunt . , . and there's no riding to the hounds on the program, either ... so leave your red coats at home. YOU CHASE' EM! Here's the way that the Kossuth county lads are going to hunt the •wily fox: All the hunters will meet at Titonka , . , and they'll be assigned position on the sides of a square whose sides are three miles long ... of course that includes nine i sections of land . . . you know that! if you sot through seventh! srade arithmetic, because sixth I grade was about the toughest I. could master. | STOECKER HELP TO RECORD FOR FIVE LAST YEAR BE-GAZETTE SPORTS Mohawks Get 102 Counters in Five Games During Current Season.

IOWA CITY, W—The University of Iowa's basketball team disbanded Tuesday, but will reassemble after the Christmas holidays and begin conference competition with an unblemished record, after winning its sixth consecutive non-conference victory, 37 to 30 over James Millikin university at Decatur, ID., Monday night. After trailing for the first 10 minutes, Iowa forged ahead midway in the first half and domi- lated play from then on, leading 21 to 16 at the intermission. After brief Millikin rally had cut the rlawkeyes' advantage to 26 to 25 early in the second period, three quick field goals and two charity osses again gave Iowa a comfortable margin. Another Millikin hreat in the closing minutes faded as Ben Stephens, Hawkeye forward, came through with one from he floor and a free throw. Both teams were handicapped by the slippery Decatur armory floor. Matt Walsh, giant Iowa center, led the winners with 11 points, while Helfrich rang up 12 for Millikin. p, 1.IM 1.11 I.IK 1.01 .III .IK .01 .m .110 .00 NEW HAMPTON—Osage higi school, winning 23 to 14 over Na shua, held first place in the North east Iowa conference basketba] race last week-end, while Wes Union, Waukon and Waverlj moved into a share of the toj. notch with single victories.

HUNK ANDERSON OUT OF JOB AS FIGHT IS AHEAD Board Member Flares Up Over Dismissal of Grid Coach. RALEIGH, N. Car., C/P)—Hunk Anderson, head football coach at North Carolina State college for the past three years, was out of a job Tuesday but one of his staunchest alumni supporters threatened a court fight over the dismissal. Soon after Dr. Frank P. Gram, president of the Greater University of North Carolina—of which state is a unit—announced a reorganization of the athletic set-up which eliminated Anderson, Dave Clark, alumni representative on the athletic council, said: "We believe he (Dr. Graham) has acted in an illegal manner and shall test his authority in the courts." The "we" used in Clark's formal statement was not explained. Clark said he understood "President Graham claims that he acted under a remnant of the discredited Graham plan, which was accidentally left in the southern conference rules and which states that the athletic director and coaches shall be chosen by the president. "The athletic council was legally created by the trustees who ^lave authority under the laws of North Carolina, whereas the southern conference is simply an association of colleges and without legal authority." The contract of Anderson, former Notre Dame coach, expires on Dec. 31. His teams have had up and down seasons, and this fear's record was three won and ;even lost.
