MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 15 · 1935 NINE Out of The JPRESSBOX By AL MITCHELL "^~~~-LETTER BOX. A contention that wild ducks do not feed to any great extent on fry and fingerting game fish . . . made in the columns of the Globe-Ga zette on June 29, by Logan J. Ben nett of the Iowa conservation com mission . . . . has drawn the critic ism, directly and indirectly, of a Mason City sportsman and a nation al authority on wild life. * * * Conservationist Bennett draivs (h. conclusion that North Iowa lakes with their abundance of duck food' . . . he says that the duck is a veg etarian . . . offer plenty of nour ishment without'the fish. "My conclusion is that adul! ducks or ducklings would not inter fere with the spawning or rearing activities of rearing fishes" he wrote. * * * Treasurer Frank C. Goodman of the Iowa division, Izaak Walton league, has this to say in refutation: MASON CITY, Iowa July 13, 1933 Globe-Gazette, Mason City, Iowa. Dear Sirs: The article headed "Fingerlings Not Eaten By Ducks" appearing in your paper under date of June 29th is so misleading that it deserves reply. The ai tide is evidently based on the bulletin by Logan J. Bennett, Field Investigator, Upland Game Management, for the Fish anr! Game department. It would seem that Mr. Bennett's conclusions were arrived at after observation of migratory wild fowl that leave for the north before the bass spawning season and return in the fall after the bass finger-lings are large enough more ably to protect themselves. Domesticated mallards placed in a nursery pond before the spawning season and remaining there during the entire summer with their broods present an entirely different picture. Mr. Logan makes no mention of the fact that the mere presence of ducks feeding around brood bass would excite the male and drive him from the nest. He says nothing of roily water conditions in ponds with mud bottoms as have the local ponds. Through bottom feeding ducks stir up lots of mud and too much sediment deposited on eggs will certainly kill them. The federal government is carrying on nursery pond operations in various sections of the country but they do not tolerate domesticated ducks in them. , J. N. Darling, chief of the bureau of biological survey. Harry Canfield, superintendent of federal hatcheries, Dr. Carl Hubbs, institute of fisheries research, University of Michigan, and Sylvester P. Baur, fish culturist for the Iowa fish and game commission are unanimous in their opinion that domesticated ducks have no place in a limited area where an effort is being made to rear large numbers of game fishes. I am enclosing a letter under date of May 28, from J. N. Darling, relative to this matter and hope you will publish same for the information of the sportsmen in this section of the state. The last portion of your newspaper article dealing with turtles should meet with the approval of all for they are well known destroyers of both fish and game. Very truly yours, FRANK C. GOODMAN. The letter from Chief J. N. Darling of the bureau of biological survey, referred to by the Izaak Walton treasurer: WASHINGTON, D. C. May 28, 1933. Mr. Frank C. Goodman, Iowa Div. Izaak Walton League, Mason City, Iowa. Dear Frank: Replying to your letter of April 22, regarding the policy of establishing fifteen pairs of domesticated mallard ducks in your bass nursery pond, it must be emphatically stated that you will have to make up your mind between the ducks and the bass. The big mouthed bass chooses as its nesting grounds in a mud bottomed pond the roots of aquatic plants. This also is the favorite feeding ground of domestic ducks or wild ducks. There is bound to be some destruction of the eggs by the ducks in their ordinary feeding habits. * * * Secondly, if the ducks have not sufficient food supply they will consume minnows. Minnows, however, are somewhat harder to catch in an open pond than in a bucket.- Thirdly, young bass for the first year live almost entirely on the small diatoms and animal- culae that occur in the water. Insects and larvae are their principal diet for the first year. Fifteen pairs of ducks would consume enough of this insectivorous fdod to furnish sustenance for a very large family of fingerlings. * * * You had better tell the boys to find some place else to put their decoy ducks and let the bass have the pond to themselves. Yours very truly. J. N. DARLING. Chief. LOCAL TEAMS PLAY FULL SCHEDULE AZETTE RTS Joe Medwick Tops Hitters of Season's "Century Club" BEST LADS EARN JOBS NEAR HEAD OF MAJOR LISTS Cramer of A's Tops American League, Runs Second to Medwick in Blows. By PAUL MICKELSON CHICAGO, July 15. (.I 3 )--Thirteen players, seven in the American league and six in the National, already have collected 100 or more safe hits this season.

Three of them are leadoff men, three others bat second, five bat third and two operate in the cleanup role. Joe Medwick, cleanup man for the world championship St. Louis Cardinals, tops the field with 116 hits, jood for a batting average of .369. Roger Cramer of the Philadelphia Athletics tops the American league and ranks second to Medwick with 114, six of which he collected in six successive trips to the plate last week to tie the modern record.

WESTERN CHAMP DEFENDS HONORS Zell Eaton Gets Under Par by 3 in Prelim Round at Denver Links. COLORADO SPRINGS, July 15. (iP)--Zell Eaton apparently hasn't lost the range of the Broadrnoor's hilly 6,500-foot high golf course. The sturdy Oklahoma City marksman, here to defend his western amateur championship when the cannonading starts at the thirty-sixth renewal of the classic tomorrow, stroked a 67, three under par, in a practice jaunt yesterday. Home folk are pulling for L. B. (Bud) Maytag, transplanted Iowa manufacturer and a well known tournament campaigner, to bring the title to Colorado. Maytag bagged a 69 yesterday to go with several other sub-par practice scores he has posted lately. First and second round matches will be played Thursday, quarterfinals Friday, semifinals. Saturday and the championship Sunday. Cerro Gordo Rifle Club Takes Fifth Round Test in National Target Loop The Cerro Gordo Rifle club won its fifth round match in the National Rifle association interclub outdoor league No. 7, defeating the Highland Rifle club of Akron, Ohio by 1,988 to 1,981. Results of the local team's match with the Frankfort Arsenal club of Philadelphia are yet to be received. The Mason Cityans have yet to fire against the Toledo Rifle and Pistol club of Toledo, Ohio. RECORD SCORES DAVENPORT, July 15.--Lucile Robinson of Des Moines, the defending champion, today smashed out a 77, a new women's record for the Davenport Country club course to take a wide lead in the race for medalist honors in the thirteenth annual golf tournament. The former Western champion was out in 41 and toured the last nine in 36. one over men's par. Lucile lost two strokes on the inside when she three putted the seventh and eighth greens. Miss Robinson's new record, a stroke better than Joyce Wethered, the English star, made here Saturday, put her way in front of the early finishers in the 18 hole qualifying round. The Des Moines girl stayed even with men's par for the last nine except on the first hole, where she carded a four. Miss Robinson's record 77 was also a new figure for Iowa tournament play. She previously made a 78 at Waterloo in 1933, and had a 79 in the Mason City state tournament, in 1932. Charlotte Ames, Clear Lake star who was a quarterfinalist in last year's meet, and who won the 1B34 medal with an S4 at Des Moines, was off to a slow start with a 4947--OB in the qualifying round. Fern Wilson of Mason City, Legion Community course star, had a 51-55--106 in the early round. Mrs. Charles Glanville of Mason City had a 50-48--98 in the list of qualifiers. Miss Ames was second to Miss Robinson in the driving contest, which concluded in a downpour Sunday, averaging 197 yards in three tee shots, while Miss Robinson reached 230 yards in one attempt and averaged 223. HANSENISTOP IN DODGE MATCH Former Legion Open Champ Wins Medal and First Flight on Sunday. Volney Hansen, finalist in the 1935 Legion open and former champion at the American Legion community golf course here, added two more cups to his collection of trophies Sunday when he won the medal score prize and captured the first flight honors in a one day match play tournament on the nine holes and green course at Fort Dodge. The championship flight was won by Jim Brown, former Mason City Country club professional. Hansen's first round of 37 on the par 33 course failed to place him in the championship flight, but subsequent rounds of 32-37-34 gave him a 140 aggregate which placed him in a tie for low medal score. The deadlock was broken on the third hole in a playoff. J. S. Hartman, professional at the Mason City community course, and Elmer Lutz also won prizes, but Max Riley and Melvin Decker, other Mason City entrants, lost early matches. The tournament drew 160 entries from Fort Dodge and surrounding towns. ·""0 yd. 1(10 yd. To. son ion ion Team Meml; IV. K. Krnyon . . . . Al Buyer K. I.. Lre 1). A. Deekrr . . . . E. K.

CEDAR RAPIDS, July 15. UFI-- Bob McCrary, the DCS Moines veteran, is the new Iowa amateur golf champion. Blessed with a keen putting touch, McCrary ended a 15-year quest for the title by defeating Art Steingraber of Sioux City 2 and 1 Saturday in a bitter final battle at the annual state tournament. It took all of the Des Moines Scot's skill, amassed during 15 years cf tournament play, to down the popular young Sioux City ace. Not until late in the match did McCrary forge ahead to sew up his first Iowa amateur title. They struggled through IS keenly contested holes in the morning to finish all square. Both turned in identical medal scores, two 75's for the round. McCrary shot to the front at the start of the afternoon round by winning the first two holes, but Steingraber refused to crack and he rallied to square the match the thirty-first hole. The Des Moines player, however, resumed his lead on the thirty-second, placing a marvelous approach four feet from the pin and got a birdie 3. They halved the next two holes, but "McCrary closed the match on the thirty-fifth. He ran his long putt to the lip of the cup and Steingraber, off to the left of the green in two, failed to get a seven-foot putt down for his 4. McCrary succeeds Denmar Miller, another DCS Moines player, as the state champion. Miller was beaten by Billy Hall of Boone in the third round. McCrary won the trans-Missis- sippi title in 1929 and 1930 and the Iowa open in 1930. Charles City Loses Games With Patty Anne in Iowa Softball Association Tilt CHARLES CITY, July 15.--Both ends of an Iowa association softball doubleheader went to Patty Anne of Boone here Sunday night, the visitors winning 1 to 0 and 10 to 1. Nelson pitched two full games for the Ice Creamers and had neat support. Bob Johns, former Boone flinger now with Charles City, had a shutout but for errors and lack of local hitting power. Nelson set the home boys down with a pair of hits. Johns also pitched five innings of the second game before Shitacr toolc over the job.

(Associated Press Sports Writer) The St. Louis Cardinals and Chi- gago Cubs apparently have called a truce on their warfare--at least until their next series--while trying to chip a few games off the Giants' National league lead. Instead of slamming each other down at regular intervals, these two clubs have stepped off on a pair of notable winning streaks and already have succeeded in cutting the New York margin to six games. The second place Cards, by walloping the Phillies twice Sunday in celebration of the official hoisting of- the 193-4 world championship pennant, extended their string of victories to 10 straight to equal Detroit's high mark for the season. Card Draw 23,000. The largest crowd of the St. Louis season, 23,000, turned out to see the Cards take a pair of easy victories, 5 to 1 and 10 to 1, behind the masterful flinging of Paul Dean and Bill Walker. The Cubs bowled over the cellar dwelling Braves 7 to 6 for their seventh straight triumph as Frank Dcmaree smacked out 3 hits, drove in 4 runs and scored 2. Tex Carleton, relieving Lon Warncke, gained hi; tenth victory in 11 starts against Boston in two seasons. Meanwhile, the Giants, suffering from a shortage of pitchers, took a 4 to 2 setback from Pittsburgh as Cy Blanton held them to 6 hits while thrco reserve flingers, Al Smith, Allyn Stout and Frank Gabler, failed to check the Pirates. Reds TJp a Notch. The Reds, who have been doing a little winning on their own account, moved into fifth place with a double triumph over Brooklyn, to 4 and 4 to 2 to sweep the five game series. With the aid of the clouting Athletics, the Yankees managed to stave off the one threat to their American league lead by splitting a doubleheader with the Chicago White Sox while the A's turned back the second place Tigers 4 to 3 in 10 innings. That increased the Yankee lead to lii games. Ted Lyons, Chicago veteran blanked the league leaders with 5 hits as the Sox won the opener 3 to 0, and gained his tenth victory, but Johnny Broaca bested three Sox iiurlers in the afterpiece and won 5 to 4 as Lou Gehrig's fourteenth homer supplied the odd tally. Sox Cut Margin. The Red Sox reduced Cleveland's fourth place margin to a single percentage point by winning the opener of their twin bill 14 to 3, belt- ng out 19 hits while Wcs Ferrcll gave 9 for his fourteenth victory of the season. They muffed a chance to move nt:; the first decision when the Sunday sports "curfew" halted the second encounter at 6:30 with the count tied at 2-2 after 10 innings. The St. Louis-Washington clash was rained out. Castle Has High Gun at Charles City Shoot for 16 \ard and 25 Doubles CHARLES CITY, July 15.-- Seventeen took part in the third registered shoot of the season at the Charles City Gun club grounds yesterday afternoon, Bim Castle taking high honors in the 16 yard event with 197 out of 200 targets and in the 25 doubles contest with 43. Gusty winds kept scores down. Under the Lewis class system prizes of fishing reels were won by Mellinger, Nashua; Knutson. Hanlontown; Lavall, Waverly; Petrok, Cedar Rap- Ms; and Parsons, Osage.

M. No Bother Pro Unhampered by Too Much Right. VALDOSTA, Ga., July 15. (-T-One-armed Jimmy Nichols, professional at the Valdosta Country club, s proving a theory that the right hand may be more of a liability than an asset in golf. A grade-crossing accident in 1929 started Nichols on his one- armed golfing career, but now he is )osting better scores with one arm .han he formerly made with two. At the time of the accident, Nichols was 20 years old, an assistant pro at the Oakhurst Country lub at Fort Worth, Tex. After he lost his arm he bought iome cheap left-handed clubs and shot around 175, he recalls with a Tin. In disgust, he yanked a right- landed midiron from a friend's bag and slashed back-handed at the ball. It sailed true for ISO yards. Now he plays consistently in the ow seventies. A recent hole in one n a 330-yard par four attests how .hat left handed swing works. Somebody asked him the secret of it. Nichols grinned. "I'm never bothered by putting .00 much right hand in to it," he replied. MB WOLF CLUB LOSES IN TUSSLE ON SCHUKEI CARD Budweiser Wins Tight One in Local Bill; Cleaners Take Long Scrap. M. C.
