CLASSB_ALL^TQURNAMEiSfT TEAM SELECTED RUDD TAKES PAIR OF POSITIONS ON MYTHICAL FIVE Mitchell, Ken sett, Fertil Place Players for Work on Large Court. GLOBE-GAZETTE'S CLASS B ALL-TOURNAMENT FIVE Oswald, 1 Fertile Lenoch, t Mitchell Brandau, c Rudd HanRon, g Rudd Boyette, g Kcnsett Honorable Mention: Batty, Rockford; Ellvesther, Hnnlon- town; Flngleson, Nora Springs; Giles, Plymouth; Hughes and Brady, Holy Family; Wagner, Rock Falls; Goodling and Gard, Ventura; Finch and Randolph, Rudd; Searer, Nora Springs; W. Ward, Swaledale; Dunn, Alexander; Rholl, Fertile; r. and O. Xenold, Kensett; Bauman, Graf ton; L. Morse and Hepner, Orchard; B. Ryan, St. Joseph. Selecting all-tournament teams is like gasping for air at the bottom of the ocean. There is material and more material and no way to sift it out except thru judgment. But all-tournament teams are ag necessary as tournaments and the Mason City Glass B practice tournament is no exception. Here goes with the old jaw forward and unguarded. In the order of ranking, Hansen of Rudd is first; Lenoch of Mitchell, second; Brandau of Rudd, third; Joe Boyette of Kensett, fourth, and Oswald of Fertile, fifth. The quintet is the selection for the play as witnessed in the tournament held at the high school over the week-end. Hansen Outstanding Displaying an ability for clever handling of the ball, working like a streak as a forward and performing in bearcat fashion on defense, Buryl Hansen, Rudd star center and guard, was rated as the outstanding all around player of the tournament. His shooting eye was accurate, his floorwork flashy and he worked at all times in co-ordination with the four other players of the team to make every tilt in which Rudd appeared a beautiful game. Lenoch, the Mitchell "hot shot," was selected for his anility to pepper the basket with handsome shooting that counted well. In four games -he made the bankboards of the high school and Y. T. C. A. gymnasiums fairly stutter as the gapping basket rims swallowed up 94 points from the hands of this sharpshooter of the center ring. Find a "Stretch Murphy" Brandau, who alternated at center and forward, for the championship Rudd aggregation, was called the "Stretch Murphy" of the tournament. It was the work of this rangy gentleman of the court, especially in the latter sessions, that pulled Rudd out in front of the pack. Brushing aside the opponents' defense like it was composed of so many flies in the proverbial ointment, the courtly "telephone- pole" swept down the floor in a manner that was altogether pleasing to watch. And when he reached for the basket, tho it was like reaching for the moon, he got it. Boyette a Game Player ' Joe Boyette of Kensett, the guard that completed the outstanding shot of the tournament by sinking one while on his knees xvith his back to the basket during the quarterfinals, was placed at a forward position on the all-tournament team without questions of any kind. It was Boyette's remarkable playing largely that saved Kensett from going back home appearing like its players were in secondhand uniforms. Tho Kensett did not win the tournament, the five was runner-up on honors and shared on the trophies. Oswald, forward for Fertile, was one of the tournament sensation." that came to the man's-slzed court and showed the folks that Fertile was not the period it appears on the map. BASKETBALL GAME WED,.

Two sterling examples of this tendency are Ernie Lombardi, now the property of the Brooklyn Robins, and Buzz Arlett, slated to labor this summer for the Phila. Both lads hail from the Pacific coast. Ernie Lombardi is an Italian who was discovered doing catching duty for the Oakland Pacific Coast league team. Now, the Robins in AI Lopez had a very good catcher, to say the least, and from reports Ernie hadn't set the far west afire by his receiving. But the Robins grabbed him. Why? The answer is easy--Lombardi can hit. Not a picture of grace as he wields the war club, Ernie socks a potent collection of base hits. In the last three seasons he mashed Coast league twirling for an approximate average of .372, which is clouting in any man's league. Born as Russell Arlett this veteran rookie soon acquired the name Buzz in baseball circles because that's the way the ball goes when it leaves his bat bound for the far reaches of the park. It fairly buzzes thru the infield and heads for parts unknown. Arlett is an ambidextrous hitter. He switches to cither paw as the occasion demands and he can hit 'cm each way. Arlett is pretty old lo be coming- up to. the big time. He has been in the Coast league for 13 seasons. Incidentally Arlett also was in the employ of the Oakland club when he got his chance to come up to the majors.
