SORDS Central 'Press Sports Cartoonist-Writer Having licked the featherweight champion and the outstanding contender for that title, Eddie Shea, fighting little Chicagoan, still sports a topknot bare of crown or diadem. Shea's rise in the featherweight ranks, in the last few months, has been most sensational, but so far it has not borne true reward in the shape of a title. Eddie's current * mercurial · campaign originated thru a licking at the hands of Earl Mastro. Unable to get further Chicago bouts because of his defeats, Eddie Went into the tll grass and started smacking over all opponents in hope of rebuilding his rep. Shea's campaign brot him up, to a battle with Benny Bass, world junior lightweight tttleholder. Shea beat him. He also defeated Fidel La Barba, who was fresh from a victory over Kid Chocolate and |who was at that time regarded as sure successor to Battling Battalino, the feather king. Shea's two victories brot him an overwei'ght match in Chicago with Battalino. Eddie defeated HIM. But the crown was not at stake. Champion or riot, this Shea kid looks like the stuff. NORTH IOWA CAGE SMO-.E BASKETBALL IN MASON CITY AND VICINITY 'HELP WANTED' IS SLOGAN OF MOST AMERICAN TEAMS No Depression for Rookies Who Seek Bigger and Better Pay Days. By PAUL MICKELSON Associated Press Sports Writer. CHICAGO, Feb. 4. /P--There will be no depression this year for the rookie hopefuls who seek bigger and better pay days in the ranks of the American league. Help wanted signs, dangling from every club office in the league, have attracted ,130 ' applicants of all shapes, sizes and records. All of them have been welcomed with open arms. Opportunity Great. Opportunity is everywhere for those able to deliver. Even the unsuccessful ones are certain of thoro chances and subsequent employment with minor leagues. Connie Mack of the Philadelphia Athletics will take a dozen or more young pitchers to the White Elephants' training camp. He admits he needs better support for Bob Grove and George Earnshaw and opportunity will be plentiful. He doesn't need any outfielders but he is taking a trio of rookies along for observation anyway. ' Pitchers are the crying need of Joe McCarthy and his New York Yankees, too. Eight experienced hurlers will try out with the Yanks, including four from the international league and one each from the Pacific coast league and American Association. Get Fence Blisters. \ Detroit, seeking more punch at the bat, has grabbed off several fence busting outfielders, depending on its 1930 staff and optional players for pitching largely. Chicago and St. Louis needed in- flelders and went after them. The Browns picked up, three .young sensations from the Texas league; Burns, Storl and l ^evey of Wichita Falls, and two good minor league catcher prospects in Young of Milwaukee and Crouch of Wichita Falls. The White Sox. experimenting with looking youngsters for rv change,'have a flock of young talent that brings a smile to the face of Charles A. Comlskey. Cleveland needed first string pitching aid and bought Fay Thomas of Sacramento and Craghead of Oakland, both with experience. Indians Replace Sewell. The Indians also picked up two hird basemen, Detore of New Or- eans and Winegarner from"El Dorado, one of whom may replace Joe ~ewell. Washington will try out a few youngsters and give three infielders, ncluding First Baseman Joe Huhel if Kansas City, a chance. Boston, ellar team last year, will take al- nost a score of rookies to Pensa. cola.

Yank Hopes Center Upon Mighty Babe King of Swat Shows No Signs of Slowing Down By WILLIAM IUTT. Central Press Sports Editor. On a pair of slender legs, a set of road shoulders, two square but exible hands and a pair of Keen yes rests New York Yankee hopes or 1931. The equipment listed belongs to 3abe Ruth, home run luminary of lie New oYrks. Much Depends on Logs. Much, very much depends on the luthian legs, shoulders, hands and yes. If they function properly and he Bambino puts on one of his old- line carnivals of clout, all will be veil with the Yankees, for it is one f baseball's truest truisms that as Ruth goes so go the Yankees. Ruth will have to be good this ear again if the Yanks are to stay n the swim, for they are in a fairly ough spot. Three strong contenders tand between them and a pennant. The Yanks are old and their foes are much younger. And the Yanks must 'break In" a new manager, 3oe McCarthy, this season. Ruth goes into his eighteenth major league campaign this season. He ins been on the job almost daily every summer since 1914. That's a ong, long grind. He'll be 37 on Feb. r In his 17 years in the game Ruth has played as a pitcher, first baseman and outfielder. But a greater strain has ridden his shoulders thru- out the last decade than any borne by other players. His has been the task of remaining the super slugger of an era of super sluggers. The Babe has hit 565 homeruns in major league competition. He hap set a new homcrun record four times, his mark of 60 in 1927 still holding despite the repeated assaults of Ruth, himself, and other sluggers. Condition Is Good. Pre-trnining camp reports of Ruth's condition have been reassuring. He has already begun a partial training grind which should see the atriner slugger fit and ready when the Yanks go south. Ruth is fired by a new ambition this year. While the undisputed homerun monarch of all time, Ruth did not win the homerun championship of last season. Hack Wilson of the Cubs carried off the prize and in doing so came dangerously close to Ruth's great mark of 60. The chances arc Ruth, barring in- iuries. is going to remain one of baacball' big shots this season, again. The Babe is getting old, bu he hasn't come close to the retire ment stage, not so you could notic it LAKE MILLS TO PLAY GLOBE-TROTTERS LAKE MILLS, Feb. 4.--Spor fans from this vicinity have a grea treat in store for them when tl Harlem New York Globe Trottei basketball team, famous group o colored athletes, make their ap pearanca in a game with the loca Tigera. · Basketball fans who have had th pleasure of witnessing this team i action were so enthused over thei exhibition that the local ions clu has arranged to assist the Tigers i staging a game with thia lean Thursday, Feb. 12, at the hig school gymnasium. tJVEUNE BEATS LGONA 18-17 LUVERNE, Feb. 4.--The Ltivernc oys defeated Algona here TUCK- ay 18-17.
