Mason City high school's Mohawk basketball team will go on the road at daybreak Friday, headed to Moline, Ilk, over Iowa's slippery and ice-locked trails. Not discouraged by the prospect that they might have to make the trip by dogsled or some other arctic conveyance, Coach J. A. "Judge" Grimsley's cagers will set out on a three- day jaunt that brings them up against two tough teams when they head for the Illinois city. · Friday night will see the Red and Blade squad in Moline, while Saturday will find the wandering Mason Cityans in Dubuque, opposing Senior high, "the school that beat Davenport." High-Scoring Game ? Moline's Maroons will be hard to beat at home. The team was a sernifinalist in Illinois' state tournament last season, but has harder going this year, losing three games and winning four. One of those defeats was handed out by Davenport, and if you're the sort who believes that comparative scores can indicate comparative strength, it's going to be a nip-and-tuck, high scoring battle Friday night. Davenport beat Mason City 42 to 30 and pushed Moline off the court by 45 to 32. Which leave the Mohawks and Maroons right in the same bracket so far as the scores can show. Anders Is Star. Coach George Senueff depends a lot on a star center, just as does Coach Grimsley. And there's plenty of fun promised when dusky Jim , Anders, 6 foot '2 inch Negro all- i Stater, _climbs up for that first tip\ off against Howard Stoecker, 6 foot 4' inch all-state pivot man for the Red and Black. Anders is the largest man on the squad, and has been one of the leading Maroon point-getters. He has been out for part of the season because of scholastic trouble, but apparently will be ready for Friday evening. Without Anders, Moline beat an under-rated Fulton, 111., team 27 to 22. The big boy came back to shoulder a third of the attack as the Maroons beat Rock Island 25 to 20 on free throws, Anders scoring half a dozen of the extra chances. Ed Liridley, sophomore hot-shooting forward, and Francis Marleir, recruited for a front-line job this season, split the rest of the scoring between them. I" In Title Fight. The Maroons also beat Pekin, 111., 35 to 32, and Galesburg, 31 to 24. The last game, a Northwest conference affair, left them in the running for the league title. Moline's defeats were handed out by East Moline, 25 to 23 in three overtime periods, before 2,400 fans, by Kewanee, 29 to. 23 in a "crackerbox" gymnasium, and by Davenport. Moline will · play host to the Mo- awks in a giant athletic plant, one f the largest high school field- houses in the United States. The gigantic arena will seat 5,000 fans in a pinch, and crowds this season have run to half that figure with plenty of empty space in the bleachers. Anders, Mariler and Cliff Peter- 'son, guard; are the lettermen from season's Maroon squad. Peter- in was mentioned for all-state honors last season as a sophomore. The outfit is drilled in the "firewagon" fast-breaking offense and a man for man defense, the same styles used by Davenport in the Blue Devil {game here. · · · · Bad Weather, Road Cut Out Wrestling The wrestlig show scheduled at the armory for Thursday night was cancelled when Pat McGill, manager of the stable coming here, phoned W. J. Irving, promoter for the Legion, and notified him that it was impossible for the rasslers to come here became of the cold weather and impassable roads. The same show will be he!d Friday, Jan. 31, according to Mr. Irving.

TONY STILL TOPS AS RING PUNCHER Tropical Menace Greater, But Canzoneri Beats Younger Boy m Nine Rounds. NEW YORK, Jan. 23. (/P)--Tony Canzoneri. the gentleman farmer from Marlboro, N. ,Y.,. still stands out as the undisputed. ruler of .the lightweights but the menace of the tropic threat to his position seems to be increasing. Brecio Garcia, a courageous Mexican lad from San Antonio, Texas, earned respect as another "comer" from sunny southern climes last night before he finally succumbed to Tony's punches. Canzoneri, tuning up for a .title defense in the spring, took on Garcia in a 10 round non-title bout at the Star Casino. He won by a technical knockout in the ninth but only after a stiff battle. Garcia's willingness to stand up and punch with the champion and his courage under severe punishment earned him the cheers of the capacity crowd of 3,500 and a place on the list of probable future challengers along with Indian Hurtado of Panama and Pedro Montanez of Puerto Rico, who have been cutting wide swaths through the ranks of the lesser lights in the division. WRESTLING By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TRE.VTON, *. -I---Dick Shfkat. 228, Germany, defenterl .loe Husek, ,209, Omnha (one fail, flfl minute l i m i t ) . AROUND the COURTS ENGINEERS PROUD OF REBUILT SLIDE Charlson Ski Chute to Draw Stars in National Event at Red Wing, Minn. RED WING, Minn., Jan. 23. (UP) ·--When the country's leading skiers match leaps in the .national ski .tournament.here Feb. 1 and 2,.they will take off from a slide designed and reconstructed with scientific care. The famous Charlson ski slide has been remodeled so every foot of the descent corresponds minutely with tile requirements of the National Ski association, according to J. F. Enz, city engineer, who supervised alteration. Enz indicated the revised jump will make new marks a certainty. He explained the arc a skier describes in his leap is based upon aero-dynamic air forces encountered. The Red Wing slide will catapult jumpers so they will face a minimum of resistance, Enz said. "Starting at the top of the hill, the inrun slope is 32 degrees and extends 240 feet to the take-off. Seventy-two feet from the summit the slope swings into a vertical curve, 138 feet in radius, which terminates on the first section of the take-off. The take-off itself is 30 feet. "The critical gradient, or sweep upon which the jumper lands, is 36 degrees and 100 feet in length. This will accommodate safely jumps from 100 to 250 feet," Enz de- declared. Among the ski jumpers who will come to Red Wjng are: Alf and Sverre Engen, sensational riders from Salt Lake City; Cuttorra Paulson, Norge Ski club, Chicago, present holder of the Charlson slide record, made in 1928; the famed Bi- ettala brothers of Ishpeming, Mich.; Johnny Oliver, Minneapolis jumper and Lemoine Batson, Canton, S. Dak., former Olympic rider. Mitchell High School's Cagers Split in Scrap PLYMOUTH, Jan. 23.--The high school basketball team from Mitchell defeated Plymouth here by a score of 26 to 23. The second team from Plymouth won its game by a score of 11 to 7. FOR THE RECORD In this play, used by Minnesota, No. 5 has the ball and. passes to No. J, who is breaking out toward the center of the floor. No. 5 then cuts around No, 1 who fakes a feed to No. a. No. 4 follows closely behind No. 5. No. 1 feeds to No. 4, who dribbles and shoots. No. 2 follows up at center, and No. 5 follows in from the right. Nos. 1 and 3 drop back to guard. * * * * * * By GEORGE KEOGAN Notre Dame Basketball Coach Copyright, 1936, by Central Press MINNESOTA, coashed by Dave MacMillan, has produced some good basketball teams. While the material at Minnesota never has been exceptionally good, the teams always give a fine account of themselves. They arc well coached, and plays such an that diagramed are typical of Minnesota basketball. I don't think Minnesota will gn far in the Big Ten this year. The Gophers started poorly, but one never can tell--they may finish like a whirlwand. No matter where they finish, when you play them you always get a ball game.

(.7)--Gil Dobic's future, if any, as Cornell's head football coach isn't the only athletic subject agitating the collegiate "hot stove league" in the snowclad section of upper New York state. Lately there has been some outcry for Vic Hanson's scalp at Syracuse, where the failure of teams coached by the former All-America end to beat their arch rival, Colgate, is an irritating factor among followers of the Orange. Hanson's support is considered so strong, his personal popularity among the athletes so great, that criticism of his regime may not go very far for the time being. The youthful Orange coach, bested annually by Colgate's veteran Andy Kerr in the annual up-state "big game," nevertheless knows what the anvil chorus sounds like. Typical Situation. The situation in which he finds himself is typical of American football, where the ability of the noncombatants to "take it" is sharply limited. Hanson has been head coach at Syracuse for the past six years after gaining a spectacular reputation as an end. In that same period the Orange has taken an annual licking from its Maroon neighbors. Twice Syracuse teams have, gone into the annual joust unbeaten, only to emerge on the short end. But the answer, say Hanson's friends, is that Colgate has consistently had stronger teams, not that there are shortcomings in the Syracuse system. Meanwhile prospect of an upstate "Big Three" agreement, involving a renewal of Cornell-Colgate gridiron relations to complete the triangular entente with Syracuse, also is being discussed. One Reunion Celebrated. Syracuse and Cornell celebrated a football reconciliation three years ago, after a lapse of more than 30 years. Cornell broke off with Colgate in 1924, terminating a colorful and natural rivalry. Some steps already have been taken but it may be another year or two before Cornell and Colgate get together. These serious affairs of state take time to work themselves out. Dobie's positon at Cornell remains uncertain but the signs now point to the exit of the veteran Scot from the domain he has ruled since 1920. Cornell, in short, contemplates a thorough reorganization of its football setup as part of the new athletic administrative program. Nothing official has been forthcoming yet as to Dobic's status from the new athletic director, Jim Lynah, but Gil is not in the picture that is taking, form "above Cayuga's waters." Will Adjust Contract. Dobie's football contract^has two years more to run but an adjustment will be made so far as this is concerned if it decided to replace him this year. So far the so-called "sentiment sounding" canvass of Cornell graduates, as well as undergraduates, has developed pronounced opposition to Dobie's retention although most football men, at the same time, feel that Cornell's gridiron decline is traceable directly to a shortage of good material, rather than any technical shortcomings on Dobie's part. Notwithstanding this and the widespread high regard for Dobie's coaching ability, the feeling has grown at Ithaca that a shakeup is now in order. Waner Is 111 Altered Iowa JFive to Play Home Battles Hawkeyes Scrap Four of Rivals During Month at L U. IOWA CITY. Jan. 23.--Loss of three close road games has bumped the University of Iowa basketball team down to a tie for sixth in the conference standing, but the Hawk- eyes play four of their six February rivals at home. So, after winning both of the Big Ten games at home to date, the lowans expect to improve their position when Purdue, Chicago, Wisconsin and Michigan come to the fieldhouse. The first team combination hag been broken up by the loss of John Barko, the captain who completed his three years of competition Monday. Now the question is whether Wally Gaddis, the fast dribbler and accurate shooter, will pass all of his work to become eligible Feb. 3.

None of the reserve forwards has shown that they are capable of replacing Barko, and the guard combination of Ken Sucsens and Joe Van Yfscldy has been functioning well, although Sucsens is weak as a scorer. Jack Drccs, sophomore, has held the center job all season, but Matt Walsh, the junior minor letterman, is back in the running after his brilliant scoring against Michigan Walsh, never has scored more than one basket in a conference game, but he sank five Monday night to lead all scorers. His scoring lead was retained by Sid Rosenthal in the road games The little forward now ba s 84 points, 32 of them in league games, on 23 fieldgoals and 38 free throws Barko is second with 72 and 27 while Van Ysseldyk is third with 56 and 23.

The total is 328 points on 119 field goals and 90 free throws, while opponents have scored 334 points, an average of 30 4-11, on 120 baskets and 94 free throws.

Goodell, undefeated Seven Eagles conference leaders, will play the Shamrocks Monday, Jan. 27 in what will be one of the most important conference games in the circuit, as the Shamrocks, with one defeat, are in second place. In an early season game Goodell defeated the Shamrocks 35 to 25. The Shamrocks have since added to their scoring punch Jorgenson, lanky sophomore threat at the forward position, and have Brinkman, Kilgore, Kaduce and Glotzbach, all playing good ball.

Mason City 'junior- college's Trojans arc out lo get some recompense for their worst basketball beating this season, and their chance comes Friday night when Marshalltown's Tigers invade the local court. The Tigers hold 48 to 21 decision over the Trojans, earned in the second game of the jayscc season. Since that beating was handed out, Coach Clayton "Chick" Sutherland's team has improved its style considerably, and now holds a victory streak that runs through four games. The Tigers have not been doing so well, on the other hand. Washington, Iowa, won from the 20 IN B TOURNEY i Completing the entry list with i total of 20 teams in the title race, Ventura and Floyd nigh schools, neither of which has played in recent seasons, enrolled Tuesday in the Class B practice tournament planned at Mason City.

No local squad will enter this season. Marshalltown squad, 28 to 24, scoring- the victory in the second half, ' and the Tigers divided two other games. Boone fell before their attack, 38 to 30, while Ellsworth of Iowa Falls, led by the versatile Mason City athlete of other years, Harry Cordle, edged out the Tigers by 31 to 25. Corcllc scored 17 of the 31 points, including 6 field goals in his total. The local attraction of Friday, with Mason City high school out of town, will be augmented by the appearance o£ Hoddy ganger's Immaculate Conception cagers from Charles City, scheduled to tip the lid as they oppose Gerald Kiester's Little Mohawks. The opener is called for 7:15 o'clock. But back to Marshalltown for a moment--Kenneth "Dutch" Thompson, who scored 11 points against Mason City in the previous meeting of the teams, is out of the Tiger lineup. And that makes a big difference in Coach W. A. "Wad" Dickinson's team. Thompson will not p!ay any more basketball this year, because of a slight heart enlargement. He will probably return to school next year. In the Trojan lineup, Loren "Tuffy" Sheckler will again draw a starting job Friday night, taking the place of Jack Struyk. Johnny Carroll will be certain to get in somewhere in the lineup during the amc, likely trading off some of the defensive work with Sheckler and Mickey MacDonald.
