2—Sec. D MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 31 • 1936 E AZETTE SPORTS GL Owens, Schmeling, Kelley Among Big Names of 1936 JOE LOUIS LOSS TO GERMAN TOP ITEM IN BOXING Champ Makes No Defense of Title; Fans Shocked by Schmelmg Win. RING CHAMPIONS N EW YORK, (UP)—The box- ins champions nt the close of 1936: Heavyweight—James J. Braddock Light heavyweight—John Henry Lewis. Middleweight — Freddie Stecle (U. S. A.) and Marcel Thil (Europe). Welterweight—Barney Ross. Lightweight—Lou Ambers. Featherweight — Petey Sarron (N. B. A.); Henry Armstrong (Cal): Mike Belloise (Nev,- York state). Bantamweight—Si.xto Escobar. Flyweight—Small Montana (U. S. A.) and Benny Lynch (Europe). NEW YORK, (UP)—Increased activity in the heavyweight division featured the prosperous boxing year of 1936, with jolting Joe Louis again providing the high lights. Champion James J. BradaocK made no defense of his title. But this lack of a heavy crown battle was off-set by widely publicized squabbling ever the postponement and attempts to match Braddock and Louis in a no-decision bout. These bickerings resulted in stimulating reading for the fans. Louis was the hub about which th» boxing world rsvolved—the same brown-skinned Detroit' Ne<TO who dynamited pugilism out of the doldrums in 1935 with his amazing ring victories. Peculiarly enough, however, it was Joes stunning defeat last June that provided the grea:est stimulus in 1936. Super-l'dan Joe. When the Brown Bomber was ' matched with Max Schmeling for that historic June bout. Shuffling Joe's victorious march through the heavyweight ranks had elevated him to the status of super-man. But this mantle of invincibility threatened to react disadvar.tage- ously for the Bomber and for boxing. , ,. Fans were beginning to believe that there was no one in the world who could offer him a contest. This belief was reflected in the apathy with which they purchased tickets for the Louis-Schmeling bout, and in the 7 to 1 betting odds favoring the Negro over the German, and in the unexpectedly small crowd of 40,000 which saw them fight on ihe night of June 19. But It Was True! But when former champion Maxie started picking that short right off his chest and nailing the Negro's left cheek—and when he floored Joe in the fourth round and knocked him out in the twelfth, everything was changed. It seemed like a miracle; the sight of mighty Louis sprawled out on the canvas in , Yankee stadium. The fans scarcely could believe their eyes. But it was true. The Black Bubble of Joe's invincibility had been burst. Ke was just another heavyweight—a sucker lor a straight right—a fellow who stunned easily when hammered on the head. Cold, Drought Cause Severe Game Losses During Past Seasons DES MOINES—The past two years have not been favorable to fish and game in the state of Iowa. The drought of 1934 brought about conditions which were very infavorable. The dry weather dried up laies and sloughs and caused low water stages in all of the streams, and this was not favorable to fish life. It also affected the growth of vegetation which provides food and shelter for game and wildlife. The winter of 1935-1936 was the most severe in the history of the state, causing heavy losses in fish, same and other wild life. The drought of 1936 followed this severe winter, and it, also, was very unfavorable to both fish arid Kame. Beilmond High Squad Wins Boyden Tussle EELMOND — Belmond high school's basketball squad beat Boyden 24 to 18, Abrecht and Peterson leading the Broncos with 10 points each, while Groeters scored the same number for Boyden. The Latimer Independents defeated a newly organized Belmond team in a 31 to 0, see-saw contest Mat Results Youth Steals Sports Show for Iowa in Closing Year Bob Feller, Typical Boy* Star, Pitches Way to Big League. 1936 Iowa > Champions \ HIGH SCHOOL rl.B 1C-,; Wmtirlo. £»>t 3 By L. E. SKELLEY DES MOINES, (.^—Youth- ambitious and courageous—stole the 1936 sports headlines in Iowa. Bob Feller. Billy Hall, Sid Rich- avdson and Edith Estabrook, four stout-hearted youngsters, turned in the most brilliant performances of 1936 to take ranking along with Iowa's previous athletic greats. Feller, the unassuming Van Meter farm boy, stepped into a major league pitching role with Cleveland at the tender age of 17. He thrilled Iowa sports fans by establishing a new American league strikeout record for a single game, his whiplash delivery mowing down 17 Philadelphia batters, Sept, 13. Stays in Spotlight. The husky youth remained in the spotlight throughout the fall as baseball commissioner Kenesaw M. Landis investigated' charges that Cleveland violated a major- minor league agreement by signing Feller directly from the sandlots. An anxious baseball world waited three months while Judge Landis pried into the facts of the case. Finally, on Dec. 10, the commissioner ruled Feller the rightful property of the Indians. The decision meant a $100,000 loss to Bob, two major league teams having declared they would offer that much for his services if he were a free agent Feller, however, saw possibilities of getting $20,000 for his 1937 Cleveland contract, and still insists he will not sign unless he receives that amount. Cleveland officials are inclined to regard $20,000 a trifle high for a lad who still is a rookie, and there are prospects that Feller doing a holdout act may be one of the early sports features of 1937. Hall Wins Golf. Billy Hall, another 17 year old youngster, stroked his way to prominence with a brilliant 1-up decision over Merle Stinson of Waterloo, in a gruelling 39-hole final match in the Iowa amateur golf tournament. Creston's Sid Richardson climaxed a successful season by winning the Western Junior golf title at Chicago, the slim 19 year old youth smashing through a tough field in his first and last shot at the junior championship. Little Edith Estabrooks. who underwent an operation for appendicitis at La Jolla. Cal., this month, continued her conquests started in 1935 when she became the youngest women's state champion in Iowa history. Won Junior Meet. Dubuque's 15.year old marvel opened her 1936 tournament accomplishments by conquering the field in the women's junior meet at Detroit in July. Three weeks later she raced through the Iowa women's field, cracking the West Okoboji course record and retaining her title by crushing Jennet Jones of Des Moines, 9 and 8. Behind the pace-setting performances of Iowa's youngsters came a number of outstanding feats that mark 1936 as another progressive year in the state's sports history. The University of Iowa swimming team, coached by Dave Armbruster, won the Big Ten championship for the first time, and Ray Walters, Hawkeye ace, was honored on the All-America tank team. Wins Two Crowns. Harris Coggeshall, the Des Moines veteran, gave his customary brilliant exhibitions to win both the Missouri Valley and Iowa tennis singles championships in a year of capable competition. Coe and Cornell, Iowa's two members of the Midwest conference, won three championships between them. The Kohawks whipped Knox, 6 to 0, Nov. 7 to clinch the football title to add to their outdoor track title, and Cornell swept through unbeaten to take the basketball crown. Drake university enjoyed a good year in Missouri Valley competition. The Bulldogs got a share of the basketball title with Creighton and the Oklahoma Aggies, and their track team, coached by Franklin (Pitch) Johnson, won both the indoor and outdoor | championships, and later added i the state title to the list. j Mohawks Arc Beaten, | High school basketball continued its spurt in public interest and development of a higher standard of play. More than 800 schools entered the boys' state tournaments, and 6.500 persons watched Ames end Mason City's championship reifn with a 26 to 12 victory over the Mohawks for the state final. Centerville's Redettes a cleverly drilled team which at times approximated boys' skill, retained their girls' state title, winning from Cumberland, 37 to 24, before 4,000, a record crowd for girls' basketball in Iowa. Dale Brand of Fort Dodge, Cornell college's 123 pound wrestling ace, served as an alternate on the United States Olympic team. Oze Walks Out.

All ended well, however, when Oze returned to the squad and closed his career with a spectacular performance in Iowa's 25 to 0 victory over Temple. George Vecnker's resignation as head coach at Iowa State to devote full time to the athletic directorship was the most surprising of the several changes in coaching staffs over the state. And so went the sports panorama of 1936, not the greatest in Iowa history, yet always interesting and forecasting an exciting 1937. HELEN RUNS TO PLACE AS STAR Missouri Girl Voted Best of Athletes During Seasons Past. NEW YORK, (ff>)— For her track and field achievements, including a national championship as well as Olympic conquests. Helen Stephens, 20 year old Fulton, Mo., girl, has been selected as the outstanding feminine athlete of 1936. Results in the sixth annual Associated Press sports poll, tabulated today, disclosed Miss Stephens the choice of the nation's experts over two main rivals, Alice Marble -of San Francisco, New American tennis queen, and Pamela Barton, English girl who captured both American and British golf championships. The long-striding Missouri girl, although picked No. 1 by only 20 among 62 observers, tallied a winning total of 97 points. Miss Marble and Miss Barton, each with 12 first places, totaled 78 and 56 points, respectively (or a 3*2-1 basis.) Miss Stephens, like Babe Dld- rikson in 1932, topped the poll i mainly because of her record- breaking Olympic victories. Hcicn proved herself the world's fastest! feminine runner by capturing the | 100 meter dash at Berlin, dethron- | ing Poland's Stella Walsh and low- j ering the record to 11.4 seconds.' She also anchored the American women's 400 meter relay team which won the Olympic final after the Germans, while leading, droj>- ped the baton. Before going abroad for the first time, Miss Stephens won three National A. A. U. championships, the 100 meter dash, discus throw and shotput. She holds numerous indoor as well as outdoor records. KELLEY SOCCER KICK ODDEST OF ODD GRID ITEMS In Fact, It Was Freakiest Play of Year in Any Line of Sports. NEW YORK, (£>)—The otherwise decorous precinct of the eastern "Ivy league" seem to have developed the knack of producing the year's most freakish episode in competitive sport. Last year the "twelfth man" who leaped out of the stands and lined up with the Dartmouth team making a goal-line stand against the Tigers was voted the oddest happening. For 1936 Capt. Larry Kelley, Yale's All America end and the year's most valuable gridiron performer, achieves added distinction for his famous "soccer kick" against the Navy at Baltimore. No. 1 Freak Play. It ranks as the No. 1 freak play of the year, in any sport, in the opinion of 59 out of 76 sports editors contributing their views to the sixth annual Associated Press sports poll. No other incident or development received anything but incidental mention. Here's how it happened: With Navy leading, 7 to 6, in the third period, Yale punted from deep in its own territory. Sneed Schmidt, later a hero of the Army game, but the "goat" of this one, received the kick on his own 25 as Kelley, among other Elis, bore down on him. Schmidt fumbled and dropped the ball. Kelley's foot connected instantly and drove it sharply toward the Navy goal. Kelley then won the race for the loose pigskin and fell on it , on Navy's 3. Clint Frank bucked across for the touchdown that enabled Yale to win, 13 to 7. Fair or Foul? Football rules specify it is a foul if a loose ball is kicked "intentionally." Such is Kelley's reputation as an opportunist that the Eli ace was credited by some critics with pulling a "smart one." He denied, however, that it was anything but an accidental kick and the officials so decided, on the spot. Oddest happenings otherwise, during the football season, included Fordham's 7 to 0 victory over Southern Methodist despite the Mustangs' advantage of 14 to 1 on first downs; Southern California's 13-13 tie with Notre Dame, which had'an 18 to 1 margin in first downs; and the absence of penalties in the Pennsylvania-Cornell game. Three on One. Three errors on one play, thereby enabling Cleveland to score, twice against the Chicago White Sox, contributed a baseball oddity. Here's what happened: Vosmik hit to Hayes, Sox infielder who let the ball roll through him to the outfield. Rosenthal, in center, picked up the ball and over-threw third base allowing Hale to score. Appling, backing up third, then overthrew to the plate, permitting Vos- mik to score. Other diamond freaks: Augie Galan's homer for Nationals in All-Star game at Boston, the ball caroming off the foul-line marker into the stands; and successful appeal of Manager Charley Grimm of the Cubs to have Dizzy Dean kept in game which he won from Chicago after brawl with Tex Carleton.

FISH ARRESTS MADE Bill McKiboney, '18 year old Adcl high school student, achieved the distinction of being the first person arrested this winter for unlawfully spearing game fish in the Raccoon river. By GEORGE KIRKSEY United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, (UP)—The history of the 1936 football season is a to'psy-turvy tale of amazing victories and shocking defeats, of blazing comebacks and bitter failures. It was an utterly unpredictable year on the gridiron and at the end not a single major team was left unbeaten and untied. From early October until mid December, the gridiron great toppled in an endless succession of upsets. Texas started the upheaval by tieing Louisiana State on Oct. 3 in Austin, 6-6. By late November only one team was left unbeaten and untied, little Santa Clara on the Pacific coast. And in mid-December Santa Clara's temple of triumph collapsed before Texas Christian, 9-0, wiping clean the entire slate of major teams with perfect records. In between many other gridiron powers bowed to inspired teams. Mighty Pitt Fell. Before the end of November the football fans were frantic. There was no way of feeling the pulse of a team from Saturday to Saturday. One week a team would be up, and the next down. Pittsburgh scuttled the highly-touted Ohio State team, 6-0, and the critics began beating the drums for Pitt as the top contender for the national title. Then Duquesne smashed Pitt the next Saturday, 7-0. Duquesne then mounted the throne, but six days later the Dukes succumbed to tiny West Virginia Wesleyan, 2-0. Then Pitt wrecked Notre Dame, 26-0. Mighty Minnesota, unbeaten in three years and with a winning streak of 21 straight games,, crashed in the mud and rain at Evanston Oct. 31 before an inspired Northwestern team, 6-0. The Gophers had previously beaten Washington, which went*, on to win the Pacific coast title. Northwestern kept up the pace. won the Big Ten title and came down to its final game against Notre Dame with the national title in its grasp. The Irish, licked by Pitt and Navy, reached their peak in late November and smashed the Wildcats, 26-6. Alabama and L. S. U. Tied. In the south. Louisiana State, after its tie with Texas, came through the remainder of a tough schedule without a blemish, and Alabama, after an early tie with Tennessee, won the rest of its games. Those two, L. S. U. and Alabama, were the only major teams to complete their regular schedules without a loss and both were tied. Opinions varied over the strongest team in the land. Some favored Minnesota, despite its de- GRID CHAMPIONS NEW YORK, (UP)—Football champions of 1936 follow: "Big" Champions. East—Pittsburgh.* East—Pittsburgh. Ivy league—Dartmouth. Big Three—Yale.

The year's largest crowd 1 ,' 101,000, jammed into Philadelphia's Municipal Bowl to see the Army- Navy game, won by the Middies, 6-0. Navy's touchdown march in the final period was aided by two pass interference plays called on the Cadets. Notre Dame drew 500.000 persons in nine games, the highest total attracted by any one team. The Louisiana State-Tulane game at Baton Rouge attracted a crowd of 50,000, a new record for the south. Pass Rulings Debated. Pass interference prompted most of the hue and cry from the fans. Several big games hinged on pass interference decisions. Two other controversial plays in important games were Ed Widseth's foul in the Minnesota-Northwestern game and Larry Kelley's "lack" of a free ball in the Navy- Yale game. Widseth, Minnesota's all-America tackle, was charged with hitting a Northwestern player, and the Gophers penalized to the 1-yard line, from where they were scored on. Kelley's "lock" of a loose ball enabled Yale to triumph over Navy, 12-7. One of the most thrilling games ;,\'3S Yale's 26 to 23 triumph ovc;- Princeton, in which Old Eli camt' surging back to victory after trailing 16-0 in the second period. Another great comeback was staged by Baylor, which scored three touchdown in the final period ,to beat Texas, 21-18, after trailing 18-0, going into the final period. One of the finest team comebacks was by Georgia, which lost four games in a row, and then finished with a rush, winning three games and tieing Fordham, which was all set for a trip to the Rose Bowl. After being tied by Georgia, Fordham then reached rock bottom the next Saturday by losing to New York U., 7-6. West Union Wins 6th Cage Scrap of Year WEST UNION — West Union high school's basketball team won from Randalia 39 to 16 ' for its sixth consecutive victory. SEPIA STREAK LEADS VOTING World Champion Runner Is Best Athlete of Year, Experts Decide. NEW YORK, (/?)— To his collection of four Olympic gold medals, as many oak trees, and the profits of his big broad jump from ama- teaur to professional ranks, Jesse Owens can add the accolade of recognition as the outstanding male athlete of 1936. The sepia streak from Ohio State, crowned world champion sprinter and broad jumper in the Olympic games at Berlin, ran off with the ballots in the sixth annual poll conducted by the Associated Press to determine this year's leading performer among the men, amateur or pro, in any sport. Owens is the second Negro in succession to achieve this athletic distinction. Last year Joe Louis, the brown bomber of the ring, was voted the outstanding performer of them all. Fifty-one of the 65 experts contributing to the 1936 poll put Owens at the top of the list. With a total of 170 points in the final tabulation, Jesse nearly trebled the count of his nearest rival, Carl Hubbell, southpaw ace of the New York Giants and hero of the year's longest winning streak. Hubbell. voted the outstanding athlete of 1933, posted 61 points (on a 3-3-1 basis.) Third place, by the slim margin of a single point, went to Yale's football captain and All- America end, Lawrence Morgaji Kelley. He nosed out Max Schmel-, ing, the German heavyweight who sprang the year's fistic sensation by knocking out Joe Louis. The point totals were 33 and 32, although Schmeling received five ballots for first place, Kelley none. First place nominations, otherwise, included three for Hubbell, two each for Colorado's Glen Morris and Georgia's Forrest (Spec) Towns, a pair of Olympic champions; one each for Lou Gehrig. baseball's iron man, and Dutch Clark, former Colorado college All-American quarterback and pro star since then with the Detroit Lions. Schmeling's Win on Top as Comeback in Sport Experts' Vote NEW YORK, W—The laurel wreath for the year's greatest come-back in any sphere of sport adorns the black thatch of German's indomitable heavyweight fighter, 31 year old Max Adolph Siegfried Schmeling. The country's experts, who were just about 100 per cent wrong in their predictions to what would" happen on the night Schmeling scored a sensational, 12 round knockout over Joe Louis, accorded the German a landslide vote in an Associated Press poll.
