Boogeys' Back The nasty old boogey man went down to Iowa again and picked off five second string basketball players, who flunked their work at the university, and were ousted from the squad Wednesday. t= v e The question of reserve strength Is going to be a big one as this Iowa basketball team goes into some of Its toughest contests, now that some of the most potent forces ot Its "shock troops" are gone, in Hoover, Richards, Kosenthiil, Bobby and Iteed. 3: * t But let's see who's left: First Ken Blackman, the Sewal lad who alternates with his brother, Charley, on the Iowa pitcher's mound and back of the plate. The brothers work at cither position with equal high effectiveness and play infield or outfield posts with about the same abil ity. But that's baseball, which con- cer-s Otto Vogel but not Rollie Williams. * * «' Doug Fllli s, formerly ol Eagle Grove, who has had varsity experience In a more or less slack season, ought to help if needed. Then there's John Miller,',,minor letter winner from Valparaiso, Ind., a sLv-foot- thrce center, on the squad a year. Blackmail and Filklns are both guards, bj- the way. e e * From the sophomore list: Kenneth Fuller, six foot Dubuque guard; Jim Gardner, of equal height, and a center, hailing from Vinton; Charles Kramer, five-eleven guard from Des Moines; Leslie Rudd, of the . same stature, from Yankton, S Dak.; Joe Scannell, six-two Iowa Cityan, ace of St. Patrick's parochial school, as John Grimm was ace of St. Mary's of Iowa City four years ago; Scannell is a center. And to wind up the list, Fred Schwartz, Dubuque guard, five-eleven tall. ¥ 'f '* Of course, there are still Barlto, Moffltt, Blackmer, Bastian, Selzcr and Grim to be reckoned in the Iowa strength estimates. * * ^ , And Dwight Hoover and Joe Richards, who also cavort on the o'Sidlrons m the fall, will have op- 18 TEAMS IN MASON CITY TOURNEY SECTIONAL MEET TO' SEE DRIVE TO IOWA BASKETBALL HONORS Mohawks Defend Title at Home; North Iowa Cagers Will Play at 11 Centers.

By AtAN GOULD i Associated Press Sports Editor NEW YORK, Feb. 1. UFJ--Equally as important to the major leagues is the adoption of a standard ball for their own competition is the prospect that most, if not all of the principal minor, leagues will use a similarly constructed article for 1934. The International league ball will come from the same Philadelphia factory that is now turning out the new standard sphere for the majors. The American association and the Pacific coast league, the other two double-A circuits and chief sources of major league playing material, also are expected to fall into line. They'll Act Alike. There are some patented features of the ball standardized for the major leagues, including a "cushion- cork" center, but other manufacturers have the specifications and equipment required to turn out a ball that will behave similarly, thus achieving the object ot putting performances throughout the ranks of organized baseball on an approximate parity. "The minor league, in co-operating with the majors along this line, can do a great deal for the advancement of baseball," said John A. Heydler, president of the National league, today. "Distorted averages and performances, due to the previous radical differences in the liveliness and makeup of the ball used, will largely be eliminated. A better estimate on player values will be gained." Three Clubs in Market. If any player deals are negotiated or completed at next week's mid-winter powwow of National league club owners, it is pretty certain the Boston, Brooklyn and Philadelphia clubs will figure in the swapping. AH three have been debating a number of proposals, none of which so far seems to have developed any real agreement. The Dodgers arc willing to part with Jack Wilson, pudgy outfielder, and Joe Stripp, third baseman, especially if they can pick" up some pitching strength in the deal. The Phillies could use both of these players, now; that Pinkey Whitney and Chuck Klein have left Baker bowl, but they can't afford to part with any more regulars without wrecking the club. Rumor has it, anyway, that Don Hurst won't be on first base for the Phillies when the 193'! season opens. Hafcy Will Stick. Until lately Chick Hafcy, slugging backbone of the Cincinnati Reds, was much in demand but the new redland control has now let it be known they will not part with the former batting champion. The Reds some time ago turned down a highly tempting offer from the Chicago Cubs for Hafey's services. That was before the Cubs finally swung the deal for Klein. Subsequently Boston dickered for Chick, who might have meant the difference between a pennant and fourth place for the Braves last year, but Cincinnati's owners decided to keep their big gun at home. As one observer puts it: "Without Hafey in their present lineup, the Reds might drop right out of the National league." Sheffield Loses Pair of Contests to Klemme SHEFFIELD, Feb. 1.--The Sheffield A. C. Basketball team lost to the Klemme five here last night 37-34. Klemme took the lead in the first half by a 19 to 12 count. Foi the locals Thomas was high with 11 points and Rube with !). For Klemme, Bunkofska, center, was high with 15 points and Kingery next with S. In a curtain raiser the Sheffield reserves lost to the Klemme reserves 42-21. GETTING READY FOR SHOW BAKERS WIN FOR SHAKEUP OF "Y" COURT STANDINGS Billman's Goes Out of Top Post as Diamond Bread Takes 22-21 Till. The fall of a leader, the establishment of a clear title to first place, and the rise from a clear position in second place to a tie for the run- nerup honors were all recorded in a short time Wednesday evening as Diamond Bread nosed out Billman's Transwer by 22 to 21 in one of the hottest Y. M. C. A. court sessions of the year, The fallen leaders are the Bill- mans, who lost their first league game this season as the Bakers von. Mar.shall-Svvift's Cleaners, win- .ers of Tuesday night, have the top lost all to themselves now, with ight victories and no defeats. The takers moved from second place, with six won and one lost, to a tie 'or second nt seven won and one ost, with the Billman team. Sutcr, Mohawk ace of former sea- ions, led the scoring for the game and evening with six goals, with Boyer not far behind, getting four and ft pair of free throws. THE MASON CITY HIGH TO SEEK TENTH WIN FOR NEW ALL-TIME MARK Injuries Will Hamper Mohawks in Game Here as Three Regulars Join Sick List. Iowa Joe Rivers, Cedar Rapids ace of the lightweight boxers, will go against Freddie Tompklns, local ringster and state champion, in an American Legion Drum corps boxing exhibition scheduled for Feb. 8 at the locnl armory. ' .-·" Layden Takes Over Job on Notre Dame Gridiron No Ceremony Held as Former lowan Is at New Post. SOUTH BEND, Ind., Feb. 1. (/I 1 )-Elmer Layden sat down at Knute Rockne's famous old desk under the Golden Dome today and began his active campaign to bring Notre Dame back to its former glory in the football world. Back on the grounds where he gained fame as fullback on the immortal "Four Horsemen" eleven, Layden officially took charge of Notre Dame's athletic destinies as director of athletics and head football coach. No ceremonies were held with his induction to office, although two weeks ago he was given a tumultous reception nt the annual football banquet. Bohind on Staff. Layden, who won national renown as a football player under the late Rockne and a reputation as n fine football coach at Duquesne university, brought one new assistant with him as he took over the offices, previously held by Jess Harper and Heartly "Hunk" Anderson. The newcomer was Joe Boland, who played on Notre Dame's football teams in 1925 and '2(3 and who will be Layden's chief gricl- iron assistant. Tom Conley, captain of the undefeated 1930 ^eam, was the only survivor of the .1P33 football coaching staff, being retained as end coach. One more assistant, to be named later, will be hired. Working with Layden in other departments were George Keogan, basketball coach, and John Nicholson, track mentor. They are the only members of the entire coaching staff who are not Notre Dame graduates, Keogan coming from Minnesota and Nicholson from Missouri. Milken No Prediction. Scholarly looking, quiet and unassuming, Layden refused to make any glowing predictions for his coaching regime today. He said he was concerned over the probable incllgibilitv of several members of the football squad. "I can promise you one thing, though," he said as a amile spread over his face. "We won't lose a single game this year--in spring practice." PONTIAGS, GOAL TEAMS WIN PLAY Shannon Sets Series Mark of Evening With 643; Ludwig Rolls 245.

Hert Barr PROBABLE LINEUPS CENTRAL OP SIOUX CITY Rf Hine LF Broughtrum C Newton Hem ph ill Brandon Referee: IBenz, Sheffield. Central high school's cagers from Sioux City will provide an acid test Friday night on the local coir.; when they attempt to prevent Coach Grimsley'a high* school quintet from winning its| tenth consecutive victory--a feat never accomplished by a Mason City high school five. With nine victims 'n their path of triumph, the Mo- lawlta have not tasted defeat for five weelta--^ince Dec. 22, when another Sioux City quintet--East high --turned back the locals 25 to 17. Joach "Chicle" Sutherland's Jaysee live will combat Billman's team of the Y league in the firat game of the doubleheader, set for 7:15 o'clock. Whether the Central cagers can duplicate the success of their neighbors from East high remains to be seen--although the odds favor the MohawUs with a slight edge for the crucial tenth game in the victory parade. While East has continued its winning ways against all Iowa teams met. Central has not met with similar success, having won only three of its eight games played to date. IJlnlr, Nebr., Beaten. Blair, Nebr., Storm Lake anc Hawarden have been submerged un dor the Central tide, while Spencer Yankton, S. Dak., Lincoln of Counci Bluffs and Spirit Lake have emerged victorious in battles with the Sioux City quintet. Noticeable in Central' record is the fact that it has been defeated, in every instance, by five boasting a superior record in its particular baskntball battleground. Spirit Lake furnishes the only hasis of comparison in the records having played both teams. Mason City stopped the Indians 33-28 in the ;econtl game of its victory string, vhile Central fell before the Lakers n a tight battle which ended 32-30 "or Spirit Lake. Coach Webb ot Spirit Lake Tuesday predicted that Mason City would edge out the Sioux City quint. However, the ker coach did not know of a recently added Mohawk squad -- the hospital squad. Three Regulars May Not Start. It is highly probable that three regulars will not be in Friday's starting lineup, in spite of the importance and need of a win to establish an all-time Mohawk winning record. Glenn Evers, six and one- half foot pivotman, will be out oC action for about two weeks because of an ankle injury received in the Washington of Cedar Rapids tilt last Friday night. Co-Captain Burns and "Red" Herbener, mainstays of the Mohawk machine, are the other Red and Black basketeers on the injured list. Burns injured nn elbow in the Charles City game, and it was necessary to remove a section of the cartilage from the joint Tuesday. If the Mohawk leader is not in shape to start, H. Hert will take his place. Herbener ha3 been 111 during the' earlier part of the week, but may .still see action. Are Wonltcnml.
