MASON CITY GLOUE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 1 1935 THIRTEEN ift Out of The PRESSBOX ~~ Bj AL MITCHELL · BUILDING A CHAMPION. Although Al Koth stopped him for the moment when he earned a slim decision in New York, there's a second Barney Ross climbing the fiatic ladder . . . at the same tim« as game little Tony Canzoneri retreats toward the last barricade, fighting- every inch of the way. * * * The newcomer is Davey Day, and that may not mean much to North Iowa folks . . . except for the fact that Day is just another one of the boys who owe their start in boxing to the late Joe Kelly, who was killed here on a murky November morning- last year as 'he fell asleep at the wheel of his automobile. * * * The 22 year old boxer, who is going to be clamoring for a chance at the lightweight title, is another Chicago boy, like Barney Ross, whose Jewish family springs from the Windy City's ghetto. For that matter. Day is a member ot the same stable as Ross, and is being brought along in the same careful way that Barney was led to the championship. Sam Pian and Art. Winch are the managers of both, Barney, the welter champion, and Davey, the comer. * * * Barney was still growing when he won the lightweight title from Canzoneri. Pian and Winch realized that he would get too big to make the weight. The managers planned to have another youngster ready to snatch the crown when Barney no longer could qualify. * * * They found Davey Day after a careful search. They handled him with kid gloves, teaching him the things he ought to know, and in his education Ba'rney Ross, with one of the best left hands in the business, helped materially. Fights were found for him that were not too hard, but hard enough to force his gradual improvement. * # * Now Day is recognized in Illinois as the No. 1 contender for the title. Fighting since 1931. he has lost but three bouts. Three years ago Sammy Levine beat him in Chicago. Last year he dropped a close decision to Tommy Corbett in Kansas City and Monday night he lost another to Al Roth. He won 10 of his 12 fights in 1934, seven of his victories by knockouts. * # * Frankie Sagilio, tough little lightweight from Cicero, 111., held Davey to a draw in 10 rounds last July. Four months later the bout was repeated, and Day defeated his Italian rival. * * * Because of his popularity in Chicago, where Canzoneri also is well liked, Day may get his chance at the championship there. Joe Foley, promoter of the Louis-Levinsky .bout, has been bidding for the match in competition with Nate Lewis, matchmaker at Chicago stadium. OFF THE GKIDIRON. When the whistle blows for the first gridiron practice at Iowa State college on Sept. 10, Coach George Veenker and his assistants should not have to devote an undue amount of time to getting the griddcrs in good physical condition, * * * Most of the candidates are attending to that detail this summer by doing heavy manual labor. One notable exception is Don Grefe, who "croons" with an Omaha dance band in the summer . . . at the other end of the training scale is John Catron, 225 pound tackle, who's running a ranch at Camp Crook, S. Dak. * * * The rest of the candidates are engaged in the more common off-season duties such as creamery em- ployes, farm hands, state highway helpers and packing plant and steel mill workers. * # # Four of the leading prospects for Coach George Veenker's 1935 varsity are busy with summer school problems on the Iowa State campus. Two of them must pass several hours work before they become eligible. * * * Ute Hayes, scrappy little captain, and Fred Poole, the expert kicker, are attending school merely as a sideline to their summer's interests in Ames. Bill Allender, the triple-threat back, and Russell Coundiff, veteran guard, however, need added scholastic credits'. * * * Harold Schafroth of DCS Moines, regular tackle, Russell Norgardt of DeWitt, reserve center, and Durwood Hanson, sophomore backfield player, are toting milk cans in creameries to strengthen their muscles for the 1935 campaign. * * * Burdette Hannah ot Marion, booked for the regular center position, and Harold Bivney, veteran DeWitt fullback, believe the fresn air and hard work on Iowa farms will be the best conditioning program. * * * Tommy Neal, the sensational Jittie Sioux City quarterback, is working for the Sioux City streetcar company. He has informed Coach Veenker he will be in perfect shape for the opening practice Sept. 10. * * * Gordon Camp, the promising sophomore fullback, labors in a Waterloo packing plant and Al Waite, another sophomore, is hard at work in a Gary, Ind., steel mill. * * * Harold Miller of Harris, wlin played part time quarterback iasl season; Rowland Bushmore of Jefferson, sophomore end; and Glon Fitch 'of DCS Moines, second string (Continued on Market Fngc) IOWA HAS STUFF FOR GOOD SEASON BE AZETTE RTS Eleventh-Inning Blow Gives Cedar Falls State Meet Berth TWO RUNS SCORE VICTORY IN GAME AT M.C. GROUNDS Shire Gets Bad Start, Holds Opponents Most of Way in Playoff Scrap. A long looper to left field, going far over Mickey Cookman's head in the serai-darkness, sent Second Baseman Conners and Third Baseman King across the plate with a pair of runs, and pushed Cedar Falls' Junior Legion baseball team into the fight for the state title Wednesday. The blow came in the first half of the eleventh inning to break a 7-7 lie that had held since the eighth. Savage, visiting shortstop, was the hitter. The game was played here after Cedar Falls had defeated Mason City On the ineligible pitching of Jimmy Rosauer, had chosen to forfeit its championship after a protest by the Waterloo Beckman- Chapman post, and had then asked that the game be played over. Shire Holds Opposition. John "Chief" Shire, who worked effectively through most of the 11 innings, had the visiting ^eam under control except in two 'frames. He ot off to a bad start, and 4 runs crossed the plate in the first frame. The Mason City pitcher had been forced to warm up for the game, wait while the visitors delayed the start by two hours, and then warm up again before the contest got under way. The delay was caused as a flat tire and empty gasoline tank held the Cedar Falls club up at Nashua. The visiting team ordered another automobile from Cedar Falls to finish its trip. Error Costs Runs. Cedar Falls scored again in the second, but Shires held the club in check until the sixth, when an infield error with two out sent a pair of unearned runs across the platter. Even then, the Mason City club, which had been busily chipping away the Cedar Falls lead, one run at a time, tied the count in the eighth, with a 3 run blast produced on singles by Roy Connelly and John Thompson, with a big double by Jim Mulcahy. Mulcahy played heads-up bail when he took a chance on scoring from second base on Mickey Cookman's and made it good. infield putout, THE BOXSCORB CEDAR l-'ALLS--i) AS K H E K'lller Ib-p fl 2 2 0 M.

Aug. 1.--What was believed to be the largest crowd ever to witness a baseball game here watched the* Toledo Mudhens defeat Forest City's Collegians 4-2 on the local diamond Wednesday afternoon. The Mudhens scored the winning run when Allaire clouted a homerun in the seventh with two men on bases. The other Toledo run was scored in the first inning on a walk and two hits. Forest City scored in the eighth when Anderson h i t ; Fecney knocked a two bagger; and Jones hit to left field, scoring the two runners. The Mudhens retired the side with a dou- ole play following the rally. Harder pitched three innings for Forest City; allowed 2 hits, one walk and struck out one.

INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 1. -T)-Dave Mitchell of Indianapolis, defending champion, and Arthur Armstrong, 18 year old Honolulu star who was runnerup last year, led 14 other survivors into the third round of the national public links golf championship here today. Victories for both in two IS hole matches would set the stage for another 36 hole meeting between the pair in the semifinal round, since both are in the lower bracket. The 27-year-old champion defeated Armstrong in the final at Pittsburgh last year. Armstrong's third round opponent was Fred Gordon, Santa Monica, Cal., who provided one o f ' the most stunning of a wave of upsets yesterday. Gordon beat Scotty Campbell of Seattle, twice Canadian amateur champion, one up. Mitchell opposed Charles Amandoles of Saten Island. Another California giant killer, Bob Tomes of Long Beach, who sent the tournament medalist, Lloyd Nordstrom of Davenport, Iowa, to the sidelines with a one up victory, faced John Madara of Philadelphia. Joe Coria, St. Paul park policeman, whose sub par 33 was yesterday's best round, was paired with Lieut. Ken Rogers, San Antonio army flyer. STANDINGS \VESTF.HX LEAGUE W. L. I'i't.! \V. T/.

FANS TALK OVER "L" SERIES FOR CHICAGO BATTERS Cubs Trail Giants, Sox Go Closer to Second Place in Major Leagues. By OKLO nOBERTSON' Associated 1'ress Sports Writer. New York baseball fans may talk of a five cent world series, but in Chicago there is a strong feeling that it will be a three-for-a-quartcr affair with the elevated and not the subway providing the chief mode of transportation. Once, in 1506, the Sox and Cubs met to decide baseball supremacy with Fielder Jones leading the American leaguers to a 4 to 2 triumph in games over the National league team, managed by Frank Chance. Hopes Up Again. Now they have hopes again with the Cubs only a half game back of the pace setting New York Giants in the National league and the White Sox only a half game out of second place and three and one half games to the rear of the Detroit Tigers in the junior circuit. The Cubs had a golden opportun- ty Wednesday when the Giants lost to the Phillies, but the best they could do was a split in a double- neadcr with the Pittsburgh Pirates. They won the opener 4 to 2 with Roy Henshaw outpitching Cy Blan- tori before giving way to a pinch hitter in the eighth. Lose Long Scrap. They carried the nightcap to 11 innings before losing 6 to 5. The defeat broke the Chicagoans' winning streak at 11 games and left them with a record of 24 victories in 28 games played since July 6. Henshaw had a chance to get credit for winning the second also, having relieved Tex Carleton with two out in the fifth, but Lloyd Waner clipped him for a double with two out in the ninth to tie the score. Count in Tenth. The Cubs scored again in the tenth but once more the Pirates knotted the count, Gus Suhr's triple sending the tying run across the plate. In the eleventh Tom Padden singled, and Ralph Birkofer, third of the Pittsburgh pitchers, punched HAWKS SPLIT PAIR Charles City's Hawks, members of the Iowa Softball association, split a pair of games by identical scores here Wednesday night, losing to Marshall and Swift in ^ the opener by 6 to 5 and winning by the same count from a patched-up Mier Wolf squad in the afterpiece. The Mier Wolf game went nine innings. Burlington Y Director to Take Over Penn Coach Job OSKALOOSA, Aug. 1. /P--Keogh Rash of Burlington will succeed Melvin Fritzel, resigned, as director of athletics at Penn college, it was announced here today. The new director has been in charge of sports at the Burlington Y. M. C. A. where his basketball team won 20 games last season. Rash graduated from Penn in 1928. Fritzell, an Iowa State Teachers college graduate, came to Penn in 1934 after a brilliant athletic career in Panther athletics. No reason was given for his resignation. (ENTRY BLANK -- Entering teams must send by Saturday, Aug. 1 0 ) this form in RESULTS North Iowa Amateur Fuchs Leaves Braves After Losing 'Babe* Judge Fails to Regain Control, M'KecImie in Top Post. BOSTON, Aug. 1. LI 1 )--Emil Fuchs, colorful president of the Boston Braves for the past 10 years, was forced today to vacate his office to silent and tactful Bill McKechnic, his manager since 1930. Fuchs had until today to regain control of the club by obtaining 9.500 shares of stock from Charles F. Adams, his vice-president. He announced yesterday that he was unable to do so and bowed to Adams' "pay up or get out by Aug. 1," ultimatum. The switch that made McKech- nic temporary president is an ironical one. Five months ago, when Fuchs coaxed Babe Ruth to Boston. AlcKechnie, who works under a verbal agreement, was destined to be ousted by the famous homerun ·slugger, who made no secret of his managerial ambitions. Fuchs hoped that the Babe's presence would solve his financial problems, but they were ill-mated. The blowoff came several weeks ago when they exchanged hard names and Ruth retired. McKechnie's pro tern promotion, however, probably will be of short duration. He will finish the season as manager. Next year, if Adams fails to find a purchaser, Bob Quinn, who sold the Red Sox to Tom Yawkey, probably will be lured from Brooklyn to take over the general managership of the tribesmen. Mc- Kcchnie will remain under him as team manager. \VESTERy LEAfll'E Slpilx City 5. ·!: llavcMporl 2. 3. Keokuk 1. 2: Council W n f f s n. in. Cellar Rapids 111; St. -loseph (!.

VETS ADD HOPES AS SOLEM GALLS FOR EARLY DRILL Sept. 10 to See Hawkeyes on Way Into Battle; Crayne Leads Star Backs. By L. E. SKELLEY Associated I'rcss Sports Writer. What a b o u t Iowa? Many sportsmen, sweltering under a mid-summer sun and wishing for the cool a u t u m n breezes, have turned their conversation to what the Hawkcyen will do in 1935. Memories of blighted hopes in 1934 serve as a damper to optimistic claims for Coach Ossic Solem's fourth Iowa production, but there appears to be an undercurrent of confidence that the Hawkeyes will have the stuff to land near the top of the Big Ten. Regulars Are Plentiful. A careful survey of Iowa's prospects indicate better than average chances for a winner. Nineteen lettermen, seven of whom were regulars late last season probably will be back in Old Gold uniforms. There arc good sophomore candidates for positions where the squad was weak last season, notably tackles, centers and ends. Breaking down the veteran squad we find 11 veteran linemen available for the opening practice Sept. 10. Eight husky backfield players, veterans of one or two years experience, will be there for Ossie to mould into his deceptive system of attack. Craync--All American. The team will have a real leader in Capt. Dick Craync, a fullback worthy of anyone's All-American rating. The big, fast Fairficld boy can do about anything a coaca could ask of a back. Ozzie Simmons, the dusky Texas lad, will be the second main ball carried in the Hawkeye plan of al- tack. Many adjectives were bclicv- c-d wasted after the Negro boy flopped a bit after a sensational start against Northwestern last year, but Ozzic came back with a sparkling performance against Ohio State in the season's finale against Ohio State. Looks for Blocking. The slippery one from the southwest, given proper blocking, should be one of the best backs in the conference this year. Once in the open he's the most unstoppable scourge to enemy defenses since Red Grange scampered for Illinois. Simmons figures to get the right kind of blocking this year, an important item in listing reasons for a good Iowa team. Solem probably will use Dwight Hoover, two year veteran, at one of the blocking halves and Shipley Farroh, Michigan City, Ind., sophomore, has the inside edge for the other backfield position. Farroh, a cousin of Make Farroh. 1929 star, weighs 185 pounds and is ideally SOX LOSE IN TWO three ames ly by win- to 2 last DES MOINES, Aug. 1. l/P)--The Davenport Blue Sox pieced together their pride today in preparation for a new series with Des Moines while Sioux City, which twice trampled the league-leaders in a doubleheader last ni?ht, complacently withdrew to rest as idle member of the league. Snapping out of their recent losing streak, increased by straight defeats in previous with Davenport, the Cowboys humble d the Sox convincin ning the second game 5 night, after winning the opener. -1 to 3. The second game, a scheduled five inning affair, stretched into six innings before Sioux City hitters got their stride and broke a tie with three runs. Kcokuk and Council Bluffs divided a double bill at Keokuk. The Indians blanked the Rails but were forced to go 12 innings before bringing in a run for a 1 to 0 victory in a "tight pitching battle between Chelini and Bucklin. Council Bluffs, behind the seven hit hurling of Ehlers. won the second game, 10 to 2. The Indian loss, coupled with Cedar Rapids' 10 to 6 win from St. Joseph, allowed the Raiders to slip a half game ahead of Keokuk :intl displaced it in fifth position. Cedar Rapids hammered May. Anderson and Drefs for 16 hits, four of them doubles, in closing the series with the Saint": with a three to one game advantage. St. Joseph moved today to Kcokuk while Council Bluffs returned home to entertain Cedar Rapids. built for a blocker. Schedule Is Tough. Counteracting optimistic thoughts is a difficult schedule, including five Big Ten games and an intersectional battle with Colgate. -Ten lettermen were lost by graduation and the uncertainty of the sophomores also tends to halt pre-season shouts of "championship." It is safe - to say, however, thai there will be a good Iowa team on the field this fall. Where it will finish in the exacting Big Ten rare will be decided only after bitter battles with other conference schools whose material is as good if not better than Solcm will have at Iowa City. LEAGUE LEADERS Greene Girls Win in 9th Game, Keep Clear Record GREENE, Aug. 1.--The Greene girls remained undefeated, as they won their ninth Softball game in a row here, beating Sheffield 6 to 2. Kammier. Hawk and Hatch, were the Sheffield battery, while Blake and Detra worked for Greene.
