MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 28 • 1936 NINE TROJANS, MOHAWKS PLAY HERE TUESDAY IN THIS CORNER Two Title Bouts Set During Next Year, Believes Ring Expert From Chicago. By DAVE KAUFMAN (Globe-Gazette Sports Staff) A strange conglomeration is the ''big three" of the heavyweight division in the fight game today. Champion James J. Braddock, an Irislnaan who was on relief rolls a year before he won the title from Max Baer: Joe Louis, Detroit's stone-faced. Brown Bomber, and Max Schmeiing. Reischfuer- her Adolf Hitler's emissary from Germany, comprise the "big three" as seen through the eyes of Clair "Spec" Kelly, Chicago American boxing writer who visited here over Christmas with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Matt Kelly, 103 Louisiana avenue southeast.

That the Cherokeeans will go into the contest against the Trojans as the underdogs is without a doubt. For the reason alone this is true—Cherokee has lost 24 of its last 25 games. It all began back in the 1934-35 season. The local school had enjoyed success the previous winter and won nine out of 13 contests. Then came the slump. Twelve contests were lost in 1934-35. Weather Cuts Schedule. Last winter Johnny Scott, former Creighton star and winner of 13 letters in Cherokee high school, took the reins from Athletic Director J. C. McCaffrey in midseason. [ Inclement weather and the worst winter in years abbreviated the schedule to eight games—and eight games were lost to run the string to an even 20. This year, Jim Brockway be- j came college coach and a two-gun mentor as well, since he also coaches the Immaculate Conception high school team.
