MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 30 1936 NINE GRINNELL FROSH HERE, MOHAWKS TRAVEL By Al Mitchell Out of the Pressbox A PROPHET is not without honor ... save in his own country. That's what Ben Selzer, former all- conference basketball guard at Iowa, must have thought when he went Tjack home to Passaic, N. J., to play A. A. U. ball. A star at Iowa, he was worse than mediocre with a horns town team . . . for a while. * * * THE REASON? He'd been playing on the spacious floors of the western conference so long that he'd forgotten the style of the eastern teams . . . their roughness, feinting, fast passing . . . and the small courts . ... Ben was always running into something or someone. He perked up later . . . near the first of this year, and has been laying in 10 points a game ever since, using a two-handed overhead shot that can't be stopped. * * * SELZER IS looking for a midwest high school coaching job . . . if he doesn't land one near home, where he's now assistant high school tutor ... two of his younger brothers play with Passaic high, one of them captaining the team . . . just as Ben did when his prep squad won about all the juvenile titles worth mentioning in the Gotham area. * * * Odds and Ends . . . BOB BROWNE, Iowa graduate student, finds- that Negro muscular responses . . . you've heard them called reflexes . . . are significantly shorter than the average white runner's. That may go some of the ·way toward explaining why Jesse Owens, Eddie Tolan and Eulace Peacock can be in full stride almost on the crack of the starter's gun. * * * Feb. 1 is the last day for hunting rabbits . . . the cottontails are classed as game by the Iowa conservation, commission, and all game seasons are closed after that date . . . the fox is a fur-bearing animal, say the state regulations, and so may be taken at any time of year and in any part of the state . . . Late in February the northward flight of game birds- will be starting. It's an interesting time of year for the folks who like birds . . . they'll be fat and sleek, in their best plumage, on the northward flight. . . - » * . * .Maj. RaJgh .,.-.'.Mississippi State h'eaa football coadh,' wants to widen football fields to 200 feet . . . sure, just move the 1 stadiums - out a little . . . The leg fracture that put Walter "Rabbit" Maranville out of the Boston Braves' lineup in 1934 would have forced the average baseball youngster into permanent retirement . . . the Rabbit's trying for a regular infield job at the age of 43. * * * Maj. John L. Griffith, commissioner of the Big Ten conference, has appealed to the "sportsmen and gentlemen" at the various schools of the conference to use their influence in stamping out "widespread disorder" at the basketball games. Major Griffith circulated a declaration to the ten schools which said ) in part: "Expressing disapproval of or an- il tipathy toward the officials or op- Iponents by booing is a reflection lagainst the one who boos. This, in '.fact, is one of the things a gentle- nan does not do. * * * "This notice is an appeal to the portsmen and gentlemen who at- Jtend basketball games to use their finfluence with the others to the lend that our conference basketball |games in which players for the most fpart compete with a fine regard Jfor the niceties of competition, may ·lalso play in the presence of others J who likewise «re sportsmen and Sgentlemen." * * * When Notre Dame used five men j in its secondary defense against i Pittsburgh last fall it was the first i time that the Rockne defense, built | ton a seven man line, had ever been ' Changed . . . Minnesota faced a \ different type of defense every Sat- |iirday during the past season . . · k the defensive tactics of football have IJ.not yet caught up with constantly '[yjjnproving offensive maneuvers and until they do there is no need of changing the football rules code.

PROBABLE LINEUPS MASON CITV DAVENPORT fJKIMSLEY Coarh MOON IVallnrr F trot Stocckrr '.'.' (' parsons jl(. r t G Simmons Wood . . . - G Strassbcrcer PLACE Marshall pymnnslnm, Davenport. TIME Frlnaj- nlBht. Coach J. A. "Judge" Grimsley of Mason City high school may be doing some worrying, but he has nothing on Coach Paul Moon of Davenport. Moon joined the Mason City mentor on the anxious seat this week as he watched his Blue Devils, without the services of their ace guard, Bud Koehnke, ramble through their drills in preparation for a tussle with Mason City Friday night. The game will be played at the George Edward Marshall gymnasium in Davenport. Only the varsity squads will meet, a game between the Little Mohawks and the Davenport sophomores having been canceled. Hard to Replace. Koehnke, who was graduated at the end of the first semester, will be a hard man to replace. His defensive work, particularly his effectiveness in snaring the ball off the backboard before Mason City front line men could get a rebound shot, was the most important factor in Davenport's play here. The Blue Devils beat the Mohawks here by 42 to 30. Coach Moon has several alternatives as he arranges his squad for the Friday night game. He may send Lenvil Simmons, highspeed forward, back to guard, teamed with Louie Strassberger, Midget defense man. If he does, it will mean a loss of scoring power, because George Warnken, reserve forward, will not be Simmons' equal in the forecourt. Parsons May Move. The Davenport lineup may see Russ Parsons dropping back from center to guard, his old position. But that means finding a center, and Parsons has been learning the .tricks--o{ the. pivot man's trade too swiftly, and scoring too handily, to be jerked back without good reason. Mason City's trip to Moline and Dubuque last week-end accomplished one thing besides putting a pair of ball games into the record book. Saturday night's play in the Key City revealed that Jack Shipley can do accurate shooting when the heat is on. He'll likely get a chance to do some against Davenport, and will be a welcome addition to Mason City scoring strength. Play Franklin Saturday. The Mohawks have been pepped up by the fact that they "beat the team that beat the team that beat them" as Jack Wallace's last-second shot saved the Dubuque game. Dubuque's rough and tumble grapplers defeated the Blue Devils 39 to 33 in an overtime period, but comparative scores mean nothing, in the style of ball played along the Mississippi. Mason City will play at Cedar Rapids Franklin Saturday night on the return trip. The Franklin squad, at home in its east-side gymnasium in Cedar Rapids, will be hard to beat after the tough Davenport contest, but has also suffered with the coming of midseason. Two regulars have been lost to Coach Orville Rust through midyear graduation. BE^GAZETTE 22 TEAMS PLAY FOR NORTH IOWA BASKETBALL HONORS Fertile Thu. 3:10 H. 8. Grafton Goudcll Goodcl!

AMES, Jan. 30. (.T)--Back in the conference money again after a faulty early season start, the Iowa State Cyclones close the first round of their Big Six basketball competition with a slightly better than even chance to defeat the Missouri Tigers here tomorrow night: While the Cyclones have pulled their last two conference games out of the fire to win by close margins and thereby crowd into second place along with Nebraska, the Tigers have only one conference victory to their credit, a 37 to 34 victory over Oklahoma. The Missouri team, however, played the league-leading Kansas club to a surprisingly close score of 29 to 25, the nearest the Jayhawks have come to defeat since the start of the Big Six season. Freddy Poole. who has been battling Burton Thompson for the center position all years, finally has won a starting role, and will open at the pivot position against the Tigers.
