Mason City Jayceesto Meet Waldorf By RICK MEREDITH Mason. City junior college stays on the road for its 2nd trial of the season Friday when the Trojans attempt win No. 2 against the always troublesome Waldorf Warriors at Forest City. The locals got a scare before they finally ground out a 13-6 victory at Eagle Grove last week. Coach Volney Hansen plans to stick with much the same lineup. The" Trojans came through with only one casualty. Dave Patrick, 265-pound tackle, probably won't play this week due to a pinched elbow nerve. But the invaders still will have plenty of beef with Tackles Ross Utt, 235, and Bill Fields, 220, in the lineup. Waldorf Faster- Waldorf, however, will present an entirely different setup than Eagle Grove. Where the Trojans bulled for much of their yardage with sheer power last weel?, they'll be meeting a foe almost equal to them in size this time and with probably more overall speed. Hansen has been. polishing the Mason City passing attack with Quarterback Chris Demos at the throttle and he's pushed his charges hard in working against 5, 6 and 7 man lines. The passes looked good at Eagle Grove despite, slight practice on them. Gar Bieber again will be at left half, Alex Kloberdanz at right arid Fred Stephan at full. Bob Nutting will relieve Demos on de- STARTING LINEUPS Mason City J. C. Waldorf J. C. Pos.

Iowa Opener Against UCLA Rated as Tossup Contest By ED SAINSBURY Chicago, (U.R) — The Big Ten's- 54th season of football competition begins Saturday with 2 of the top rated teams in the circuit, Northwestern and Purdue, opposing each other at Evanston in a standout scrap. Every other conference club also will be in action against a non-conference foe, and the Big Ten teams generally were favored to win. Minnesota rated a 3 touchdown edge over Washington while the Iowa clash at Iowa City with U. C. L. A. was a toss-up spectacle to close out Saturday tangles with the Pacific Coast conference. Wolves Favored Defending conference champion Michigan was held one touchdown better than Michigan State, due to start Big Ten competition in 1953 as the 10th member of the circuit. Illinois, another question mark for the 1949 campaign, will test its attack for speed against Iowa State, always previously a difficult rival. In 3 earlier contests with the Illini, Iowa State had come out with 2 defeats by a 7-0 count and one 12 to 12 tie. Saturday Illinois was given a 20-point edge. Wisconsin, doped to finish a poor last in the league' this season, tries Marquette for the opening game and it looked like a close contest, although the money-line makers figured the Badgers 2 touchdowns better. Irish Heavy Choice Indiana, figuring to improve next year and in 1951, was the sole conference club given every chance to lose. The Hoosiers face mighty Notre Dame, intending to Louise Suggs Sets Record to Lead in Women's National Landover, Md., (/P) — Cincinnati's Louise Suggs looked like a rmighty tough golfer to beat Friday as the Women's National Open moved into the 2nd day. The former Carrollton, Ga., lass held a 3-stroke lead over her nearest rival—Amateur Beverly Hanson of Fargo, N. Dak.—as play opened. Already the 1949 Women's Western Open champion and Tarn O'Shanter titlist as well, Miss Suggs Thursday fired a sizzling 6-under-par 69—a women's record for the course—in the 57,500, 72-hole medal play event at Prince Georges Country club. On the 8th she blew a chip shot but otherwise had no trouble, using only 28 putts to negotiate the 18 holes. Miss Suggs was trailed by Miss Hanson, the • Pasadena titlist and National Amateur semi-finalist in 1948. The North Dakota entrant was 3-under-par with 72. Pro Patty Berg of Chicago, winner of the 1946 Open, and Bee McWane, the Alabama state titlist, were tied for 3rd with 73 after the first round of play. Defending Queen Babe Didrikson Zaharias and National Amateur Runnerup Dot Kietly of Long Beach, Cal., were next with 74's. ^fense. Tom and Roger Pattee Hathaway will be at the ends, Bob Stoyles and Duane Johnson, guards, and Jay Marti, center. Hansen is apt to substitute freely, especially as he seeks better blocking in the line. Beaver New Coach Coach Lyle Beaver, a Luther product, is in his first year at Waldorf and will operate off the single wing. He's been well pleased with the spirit of his 30 candidates as they prepare for their opener and believes they will develop into ,a formidable club. His line averages close to 190 with Tackles Jake Eekhoff of Belmond hitting 226. and Bob Christen'' of Forest City'2iO. Assisting Beaver is Rolf Lund, former head mentor 1 Erdahl, quarterback, is back with his areial artistry which' gave the Warriors their touchdown in the 14-6 1 o s s to Mason City last year. • Beaver has liked the running .displayed by Dean Nerem, another veteran, at left half and Fullback Dick Berg, of Broadhead, Wis. The backs 'average 166 with Bob Buckley, right half, showing up well on blocking in practice sessions. Daryl Ostercamp of Clear Lake has . won a starting wing post with Chuck Stubbs. Both are 6-3. At guards are Dick Stockseth of Belmond and Rodney Johnson, Luck, Wis. 'Don Marx, 190-pound Eau Claire veteran, is the pivot starter. The Trojan tiff is the first of 8 on a strong, schedule ahead of the Warriors. The game with St. Olaf frosh is homecoming. Both it and the Britt contest will be at 2 p. m., the other home games at 8. The schedule: Sept. 30 — Austin, there., Oct. 8 — Rochester, here. Oct. 15 — St. Olaf Frosh. here. Oct. 2J — Ft. Dodfe, here. Oct. 28 — Worthington, there. Nov. 4 — Eagle Grove, there. Nov. 15 — Britt, here. extend a string of 28 games without defeat, at South Bend, and the Irish were an overwhelming choice. The Purdue-Northwestern game should prove the pre-season dppesters right or wrong on one of the clubs. Northwestern, 2nd place team in the conference last season and, Rose Bowl winner over California, has been rated one of the championship contenders, losing only 3 men from the bowl starting lineup. Have Problems But the Wildcats have punting and passing problems and could be knocked down quite a peg by Purdue, should. the Boilermakers jell on the playing field. Purdue will be hurt by the loss of Halfback Harry Szulborski, leading ground gainer in the league last season. Szulborski, a hard driver with little weight, suffered a leg injury and Coach Stu Holcomb said he would not start. He said his star runner might get into the game, but Neil Schmidt, a fast junior letterman, would open the contest at left half. Michigan's string of 23 straight victories might be threatened by the Spartans. Only 4 of last year's starters are missing from the Michigan State squad and they battled the Wolverines all the way last year before losing 13-7. GARNER, CORWITH PLAY TITLE GAME ON SUNDAY Garner—The Garner Independent baseball team will close the season with a tournament playoff game on the local diamond with Corwith Sunday. The game will determine the North Iowa baseball league championship. The teams split in 2 games during the Stranahan in Match Against Iowa's Jacobs By SKIPPER PATRICK St. Louis, (/P) — There isn't an amateur golfer in the country that can waltz around the course with another good amateur and expect to win. That's the opinion of Frank Stranahan of Toledo, who was one of the fortunate favorites to ad- /ance to the quarter-finals of the Western Amateur golf tournament. Stranahan beat Donald Shock, r., Dayton, Ohio, 3 and.2, and Alex Welsh, Rockford, 111., 1 up, Thursday. Defending Champion Robert 'Skee" Riegel, Upper Darby, Pa., vas eliminated in the 2nd round, 1 up, by-Thomas Sullivan, Miami, Fla.) university student from :hicago. Sullivan holed a 30-foot uphill putt on the 18th green of he Bellerive country club course, i 6,505-yard layout. "There's just not enough difference between the v good amateur players to label any one man as an outstanding favorite," Stranahan said. "You can't figure a match 6 and 5 anymore. That kind of a forecast likely winds up with the underdog winning 1 up." Stranahan, who has won every major amateur meet with the exception of the National, was paired Friday with John Jacobs. Ill, 5- time Iowa state champion from Cedar Rapids. Jacobs advanced over Richard Irwin, Omaha, Nebr., 1 up, and Medalist John Wagner, of Wilmette, 111., 3 and 2. While Stranahan now finds himself the most highly regarded player in the lower bracket, the upper First Big Six Contest for Both Schools By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor Friday night at Roosevelt field the Mason City Mohawks play one of their oldest, and toughest, football rivals when they take on the West Waterloo Wahawks. This is a Big Six conference game and both schools have only 4 loop tilts slated this season. That makes victory in Friday night's game a must if either team has ideas about copping the championship grabbed last season ~by Fort Dodge. A little research on the series is interesting. Each school has won 7 games in the past 18 years with 4 of the games ending in ties. Mason City has never beaten West by more than 3 touchdowns in that span and the only time West beat the Mohawks by more than 2 touchdowns was in the 1943 game when the Wahawks romped 40-0. Seek First Win Since 1945 Right now, Mason City hasn't scored a win over West since 1945 with the Wahawks winning 14-0 in 1946, 13-7 in 1947 and last season's game ended in a 7-7 tie at Waterloo. The game will also mark a test on an "upswing" and a "comeback." Mason City, after being beaten at Ames, came back to play fine ball against Central Sioux City last week to earn a 20-14 victory—that was the upswing. But West, conqueror of Dubuque 39-6 in the season's opener, was tripped by Clinton 26-12 -last week—the Wahawks will be trying to do a comeback. The Mohawks will not be at full strength to face West. Socrates Pappajohn, big rugged lineman who has been the main strength on defense this season as well as a key blocker in opening holes in the line, has a wrist injury and is not slated to start. Bud Berger, who turned in a crack defensive halfback job against Central last week, is slowed up with a Bums Blast Cardinals 19-6 lame shoulder. Defensive Changes Dick Macer will take Pappa- john's place at guard in the starting lineup. Otherwise, Coach Harry Helgason will use the same offensive unit which opened against Sioux City. On defense, Jim Brandau and Eldon DeVary will go into the middle of the Mohawk defense with Dave Parker, Eric Biedermann and Dale Bartusek ^retaining their iron man roles in the front wall. Gordon Clark will take Pappajohn's place as a linebacker to team with Frank Miller. Bill Oglesby will take Berger's ; spot at a defensive halfback to team with Bird Margin Only i Game By RALPH RODEN Associated Press Sports Writer The St. Loui^ Cardinals, down through the years, have gained a reputation as a "never say die" team. Baseball fans are wondering if the present crew of Cardinals will live up to the saying made famous by their illustrious predecessors. The Cardinals' spirit should be low. They suffered one of the most humiliating defeats in their long history Thursday night, 19-6 trouncing at the hands of the 2nd place Brooklyn Dodgers. Outlook Changes Coming on the heels of a 5-0 beating the previous night the Cardinal pennant outlook, which was peaches and cream Wednesday afternoon, has curdled somewhat. The Cards now are only a half game in front of the charged-up Dodgers and they have 7 games left to play to the Dodgers' G.

Hawkeye Defense Against Passes Worries Anderson Iowa City, (U.R) — Pa«=s defense worried Dr. Eddie Anderson, University of Iowa coach, Itiday as the Hawkeyes prepared for their opener with UCLA Saturday. The west coast team planned a workout at Cedar Rapids after a flight from California. The Uclans opened their season last week with a Victory over Oregon State. Iowa looked strong at stopping Bruin plays until the reserves took to the airlanes Thursday. Then the Hawks crumbled slightly. Anderson held no contact work and concentrated mostly on punts, kickoffs and kickoff returns. Only one Hawkeye, Tackle Jim Shoaf, was sidelined with injuries. Shoaf will miss the opener due to an injured leg.

In the Clinton game, the River Kings could make only 68 yards rushing against the West defense, which is very rugged in the middle of the line. But Clinton took to the airlanes for 232 yards. The West ground game has shown plenty of potency in 2 games to gross 450 yards and 30 first downs. ' Landau an All-Stater Top backs in the West attack are Art Landau, a speedy runner who was a 2nd team all-state performer last season, and Lowell Sisson. They are halfbacks in the West spinner system patterned after the Iowa Teachers style of play. Coach Louie Breitbach's team will have the edge in experience which includes Letterwinners Landau, Sisson and Jack Baugher in the backfield, Ron Kohls at center, Tom Burke and -Bob Walden at tackles and Jim Damm at end.
