MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, J A N U A R Y 29 NINE LENOX WINS IN SAD CONTEST BY 36 TO 27 -By Al Mitchell Out of the Pressbox THERE'S A BIT of the "I told you so" in a letter from Frank Condon of Ventura one of the most active wild life champions of North loxva, he is ... "It has finally happened," he writes, "and great has been the toll. In the face of repeated warnings and appeals from various sources for aid, hundreds of beautiful birds now lie cold and dead." * * * BUT NO nne could blame him for feeling deeply the tragedy that he ana v""-ers foresaw . . . the deep winter coid that took the lives p£ so many upland game birds in North Iowa. Perhaps, as he also writes, the sportsman will wonder where the pheasants have gone next fall . . . perhaps the farmer will wonder why he and his crops are pestered with, bugs and weeds. * * * "NOTHING CAN be done about the birds that are dead, but we can heed the lesson that has just been taught and do our utmost to save the remaining live birds . . . we cannot afford to lose more of them. The danger is not past.-The deep snow may lie on the ground for weeks, covering all the food. Let us go to save what we have and then let us 'go and sin no more.' " * * * WALTON KOCH . . . Wavcrly high school coach who officiated with Cecil Boyer in the Lenox-Trojan basketball game Tuesday night . is an. old friend of Coach Howard Barker, Mason City wrestling tutor. In fact . . . their friendship dates back to the time when they were grade school youngsters in Nora Springs Coach Barker ' got a good fatherly fanning on his trousers-seat on one of those boyhood days . . . when the two of them played "barber-shop" . . . the Mason City teacher was the barber . . . 'Koch was the customer, and his hair suffered as the youthful tonsorialist used the scissors. * * * CECIL BOl'ER hal changed clothes and made ready to come out and watch the second game Tuesday night before he found out that he was supposed to carry a whistle, too ... Lenox college is located aE Hopkinton, in the southeast corner of Delaware county . . . 35 miles southwest of Dubuque,. .15 miles north of Anamosa and about the same distance southeast of Manchester . . . population is 758, enrollment of the college is 65. * * * Looks as though the state basketball championship is in the bag for Mason City's Trojans . . . 1934, Marshalltown won the event on its home court . . . in 1935, Fort Dodge won in its o.wn gymnasium. . . . By the way, here's another good argument for a Mason City high school fieldhouse: Several fellows who have to work until 8 o'clock or a bit later in the evenings would like to see the local games, but can never find a seat for the high school contests . . . can't even get in the gym on some nights . . . so they've given up trying to attend * * * It's been a little tough, getting publicity on the high schools that will compete here in the practice ,'i tournament . . . snow and cold IJlweather caused many of the schools ·to dismiss during last week . . . a lot j'of coaches didn't get their letters ^requesting information on their [{teams . . . this week's tournament will be the first one in years for which Plymouth hasn't played in the opening game. * * * Runners on the University of Iowa fieldhouse track will set new records in every opening race of the indoor season . . . the track, formerly measuring six laps to the mile, has been cut down so that eight laps make the distance--the i new oval will conform to most of jthe others in the conference . . . it Vwill be wider, and will i?jt extend (s 0 far towards the ends of the /building, making it easier for spectators to see the events. * # * Some of the top performances of 'the midwest were turned in on the old track . . . such as :48.9 for the quarter mile, faster than the Amer- Wi lean record . . . 1:56.4 for the S"" 4:21.9 for the mile, 9:26.4 for the two mile, and 3:21.6 for the mile relay . . .Jimmy Owen's :06.1 mark for the 60 yard dash was set on the old straightaway. TROJANS LOSERS IN ROUGH BATTLE ON LOCAL FLOOR Fight Visiting Team Even All Way Until Last Minutes of Court Contest. Lenox junior college of Hopkinton defeated Mason City's Trojan basketball team here Tuesday night in a disappointing exhibition, full of rough and spotty play, inaccurate shooting', and repartee between the visiting players and the crowd. The tall visiting team had a 36 to 27 edge on the Trojans at the final gun, adding up 7 points in the last minute of play, as the tired Mason Cityans let up in defeat. The contest was one of the tightest battles ever seen here so far as the running score indicates. At the same time, it was one of the poorest, with both teams missing a sad number of shots. Lenox fired at the goals 72 times to collect 36 points, )ne of the lowest scoring averages put together here this season. The visiting team held two slim leads at the end of the first quarter and the end of the first half. Lenox led 9 to 8 at the first rest period, and 17 to 16 at the half, k Sweitzer, visiting center, scoring just before the gun was fired to get the half-time advantage. A goal by Gale Lane had been wiped off by a traveling penalty a few seconds before. Merrill "Red" Herbener tied the score at 23 to 23 as the fourth period got under way, flipping the ball out of a corner and twisting his way through on a long angling dribble for a pair of goals. Gale Snell followed his miss at the free throw' line to give the Trojans a lead, but the count was tied at 27 to 27 a moment later. Herbener scored the fina Mason City points on another dribble, Sweitzer counted a pair of goals for Lenox, Dick Sprenkle added ; free throw, and Con Marsh, loud talking forward, punched in two more goals to set the final margin The Trojan reserves won 33 to 32 from Holy Family Catholic in a. cur tain-raiser, after breaking a H to 14 tie at the half. Dave Barber's 12 points led the reserves, while Jack Gus" Muehe, Northsider husk; scored 11 for the losers. THE BOXSCORES. Crystal Lake Wins Game With Leland High Cagers CRYSTAL.

YOUNGER LEAGUE ATHLETES OUGHT TO TAKE IT EASY Hunting, Golf 0. K. for Big Time Stars--No heavy Work in Gyms. By ALAN GOULD Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, Jan. 29. CT)--The three "R's" advocated by Larrupin' Lou Gehrig for baseball's off-sea- on--"reading, rest and relaxation" --parallel closely the prescriptions handed out by 'most major league medicine men, the managers, for the benefit of their athletes. Lest it be supposed that they are speaking mainly from personal fondness for carpet slippers and a comfortable place by the fireplace these frigid winter nights. Rogers Hornsby, the rajah of the St. Louis Browns, comments: Younger Men Overdo. "I admit fellows like Frankie Frisch and I have to take it easy during the off-season but younger men too often overdo because they figure they can get into shape for playing baseball easier in the training camp. They should not play basketball or t'ake part in other strenuous competitive sports. They should stay away from gymnasiums. Hunting is all right, in fact anything that takes a lot of walking is good." Considering that major league baseball involves seven months of steady, concentrated activity, Frisch's tip to the younger generation is to devote the winter to "concentrated loafing." Charley Likes Hunting. Banjo-playing Charley Grimm, popular pilot of the Chicago Cubs, takes issue with the Frisch doctrine. Says Charley: "Players should keep in the best possible condition during the winter. Hunting is the best sport to keep the legs hardened and the system from softening up. The more a fellow keeps in shape during the off-season, the easier it is for him to get in playing condition in the spring. Pitchers should rest their arms completely." Golf is all right but anything more strenuous is frowned upon by Manager Joe McCarthy of the Yankees. Joe draws no definite line on what his charges should or should not do during the winter but he trusts they will avoid world tours and keep away from basketball courts. Endorse Same Policy. Mickey Cochrane of the world champion Tigers and his old boss, Connie Mack of the Athletics, endorse this general policy. Steve O'Neill, Cleveland's pilot, warns his pitchers against playing handball or otherwise endangering the muscles of their salary arms but doesn't object to this ' particular indoor sport so far as the other players are concerned. Steve recommends a certain amount of off-season routine, in or out of a gymnasium. So does Charley Drcss'en, Cincinnati's peppery leader, who adds: "Most of the players have enough sense not to overdo during the winter." MAROONS WIN SIOUX CITY, Jan. 29. (.-D--Morningside won n rough North Central conference basketball game from South Dakota Slate. 37 to 25, here last night. Twenty-eight fouls were called. Scarlet Fever, Mumps, Cold and Snow Hamper North Iowa Coaches Chapin Brings Squad* With Clean Record to Local Match.

(.Tl-Under vigorous examination for almost five hours last night. Dr. Walter E. Mcanwcll defended his giving iquor to football players and his secret agreements with members? of the University of Wisconsin coaching staff. The athletic director and former Badger basketball coach was the major witness at the first session of board of regents investigation into troublesome athletic conditions here. After delving into old and new phases of the upheaval, the regents adjourned to Feb. 6 when they will question Dr. Clarence Spears, football coach whose friction with Mcanwell became known last month. Meanwcll said he gave whisky to one football player after the Northwestern game last season "because he was depressed over the defeat," and to another because he had a cold and the team trainer had asked for a, stimulant for him. The director explained he was medically trained and thought that if he believed a boy needed a stim- olant he cohlcl give it to him without breaking any rule. Meanwcll admitted having a secret signed agreement with three coaches, including Harold Foster of the basketball team, by which he could remove them at his pleasure without publicity. He said he realized now that the contracts offered the coaches no avenue of appeal should he exercise them, although them seemed quite reasonable to him when made.
