MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 16 • 1937 NINE MASON CITY ROUTS FORT DODGE CAGERS WATCH SOX FOR NEXT SEASON IN DRIVE FOR FLAG That's Advice of Chicago Club's Owner in Off Season Interview. By EARL HILLIGAN CHICAGO, (A 1 )—The Chicago White Sox, in whom thousands of never-say-die fans have been investing their loyalty for many gloomy seasons, are getting ready to pay off next summer. Lou Comiskey. genial White Sox owner, confidently predicted Saturday that, barring too many bad breaks through injuries or illness, his club will win the American league pennant—"Yankees or no Yankees." "And what's more," he said, ''we'll lead the race from start to finish." "We made a fine shewing last season, when we were badly crippled through most of the drive. Monte Stratton was out for an appendicitis operation. Players Were Hurt. "Luke Appling was hurt, as were Rip Radcliff and several others. We finished just about in a tie for second place and were whipping the Yankees at the end of the season, and we'll whip them again next season." Comiskey made it clear he isn't going to let anything interfere with his plans to get the Sox away to a flying start. "Holdouts?" he grinned. "I haven't any- right now, regardless of the talk' going around. Appling always puts off signing a contract. Radcliff and Jackie Hayes are just talking things over. Zeke Bonura m?.y develop into a holdout. He's a swell fellow, but just doesn't know what he wants. But we'll be readv. Sox Have Pitching. '•I realize the Yankees are a fine club, with a powerful punch. But they haven't our pitching staff , and that will tell the story. Win, | lose or draw, the Sox always have been loyally supported for many years. "The old man (the late Charles A. "the Old Roman" Comiskey) spent a lot of money trying to give the fans a real team. The Sox always have been scrappy, and we'll be that way again next summer. "There's a lot of grief owning a ball club, but a pennant next summer will amply repay not only the fans but myself and my whole organization."

Chicago Cubs Not to Slash Players' Pay Cuts Won't Be Drastic This Season; Gabby Named 'Field Leader. CHICAGO, (&)— At least most of the Chicago Cubs, whose failure to retain their National league pennant started circulation of pay cut rumors, aren't going to be financially penalized as heavily as they were led to believe. Manager Charlie Grimm, after a salary conference with Owner P. K. Wrigley, said no player was i given a cut, although a bonus I clause which brightened some contracts will be missing this coming season. Grimm indicated Wrigley may reward an athlete who performs unusually well. Grimm has named Gabby Hartnett, veteran catcher, as the team's field captain for Z937. Hartnett, who will be starting his sixteenth year with the Bruins, succeeds Woody English, infielder transferred to Brooklyn.

By AL MITCHELL (Globe-Gazette Sports Editor) Mason City's Mohawks remembered—and just in time, it was— that they had to win a basketball game from Fort Dodge. So they went out and won it, Friday night, in the third and fourth periods, after snoozing through more than the first half while the Dodgers piled up an eight point lead. The final margin was 29 to 23. The win. Mason City's first in the Big Four conference, Vfted the Mohawks off the bottom of the pile in the prep league, and gave the Dodgers sole rights to the last step of the ladder.

CALL OFF MEET CRESCO — The Cresco-Davenport wrestling match scheduled for Friday night was called off on account of icy roads. . reason, Mason City had a pretty jittery basketball team on the court during the first half. The Dodficrs led ti to 3 at the quarter, after Jack Jones had grabbed a loose ball and hot-footed to the basket for a setup, and red-headed Bill T i e r n e y had clipped up another pair of points on a block play. Leland Huffs follow-up .shot and Howard Gorman's free throw added up to make the Mohawk total. The Dodgers were still hitting 'em in the second period. Tierney found one from the corner right away, but Everett Fletcher evened that up by stinging a shot through from the six-foot center circle. He got another, square into the strings, a few minutes later, but the Dodgers took a turn at scoring after that. Lead by Eight Points. Chuck Mattice tipped in a snap shot as he was ridden out of bounds on a fast break, and Rich tossed another goal from a handy corner. A set of double free throws by Mattice and Huff made the score 15 to 11 at the half, for the Dodgers. Rich opened the third period by tossing a "backhand" shot through the west ring as Fred Stoecket shoved him out of bounds, and Tierney whizzed a shot over Wayne Wood's head to set the score at 19 to 11, Right at that point, things started to happen. Huff went under the east goal to grab Wood's long spot pass and tip it into the ring. Then Fred Stoecker added a free throw. Wood steamed down the floor with an intercepted pass, and made the trip clear to the goal under his own power, as the defense trailed him, for another bucket. Perfect Play Scores. Then came a perfect play, with Stoecker passing off to Huff from the pivot-post position to set up a clean shot that was good for points. The third period ended right there, with Mason City still trailing, 19 to 18. The Mohawks slipped down a point further when Tierney dumped in a free throw to open the fourth quarter, but Stoecker bounced in a free attempt, and Wood tossed a second chance through after Huff had failed on the same job. Wood's throw was .perfect, dead into the center of the SQUADS SHARE LEAGUE HONOR Red Crown Wins Three But Iso-Vis D Has Higher Figures on Alley.

Vines Scraps Cold, Briton; Defeats Both Piles Up Points in Friday Match Against Former Amateur Leader. PITTSBURGH, (£>)—Ellsworth Vines, national professional tennis champion, left for Detroit Saturday with a double victory safely tucked away—he licked a cold, then trounced Fred Perry, former amateur king, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 6-1. Three limes before he bowed to Perry in matches at New 'fork, Cleveland and Chicago. Then he went to a Chicago hospital, stayed in bed for six days and licked the cold. He went into Friday night's match, back in top form and except for the second set, which went to Perry, displayed marked superiority piling up points seemingly with little effort. Perry had said before the match Vines' illness "certainly put me in a hole.'-' He explained: "If I won I did so because Vines wasn't at top form; if I lost fans could say that Vines, even though off his game, could beat me."

Rowan High Halves Kanawha Victor Over Woden in Cage Scrap KANAWHA—Kanawha high j school took a double basketball FORT DODGE—A sparkling offense, featuring the effective marksmanship of Gale Lane and Lee Usher, earned Mason City a 37 to 29 decision Friday night over Fort Dodge junior college's basketball team. The rough and tumble contest provided few breathing spells for the players and not a dull, moment for the spectators, as both teams fought, without a letup, the Trojans to protect their early lead, the Dodgers to overcome their margin. Coach Clayton/'Chick" Sutherland's crew piled up an 8 to 1 lead in the first four minutes of the battle, and clung stubbornly to their advantage. Three times the Dodgers chiseled the visitors' edge to three or four points, but each time Lane or Usher came through with LANE field goals that kept the Trojans safely in front. Bill Todd, the Dodgers' hard fighting little guard, kept the Blue and White quintet from taking a trouncing in the first half. He scored 10 of the IS points the locals harvested in the opening period, and each of the four field goals he dropped was of the breathtaking variety. He and Lane staged a contest for scoring honors in the first half with Lane trailing at recess time by a single point. Mason.City had a 22 to 15 lead at the half, and finished the game with a margin-a point better than that after the fastest minutes of basketball local cage fans have seen in a long time. The sharpshooting of Lane and Usher won't be forgotten here soon. They were so deadly at short range that the Dodgers scrapped bitterly to keep them from getting the ball. They scored three field goals apiece in the final period, most of them on arm- length tosses. Gale Snell, Trojan forward, was the hard luck performer of the second half. He put four long shots into the ring and each time the ball caromed out. Lane was the scoring star of the game with 16 points; Todd was runnerup for marksmanship honors with an even dozen, and Usher contributed 10 points to the Trojan total. Lane and Todd were also standouts in other departments of the game, and Leo Shelgren of Fort Dodge and Snell of Mason City were all-around stellar performers.
