MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 13 1936 NINE HOMECOMING FOR MOHAWKS, TROJANS GO y Al Mitchell- of the Pressbox PROTECTION.. .FOR highschool football players . . . is the keynote of a dozen proposed changes and safety measures in the scholastic grid rules. Coach Clayton "Chick" Sutherland, ·who built Mason City's undefeated team of last fall, took time to explain them briefly Wednesday afternoon . . . you'll see most ot these things next fall. THE REVISED rules will me adopted by the National Federation of high schools . . . swift-growing organization that sets the regulations for 14 midwestern states. Starting with only Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin in its membership, the rulemaking organization has increased its enrollment to that present figure . . . and other states are lushing -to get on the bandwagon. * * * FIRST ITEM in the program nf players' protection will be the establishing of a cleared safety zone, five yards in width, around every high school playing field . . . . toward the same end are new rules which provide for two minutes' rest between quarters and 15 minutes between halves. Also for the sake of safety is a new rule which penalizes out-of-bounds tackling as unnecessary roughness . . . and which puts the burden on the tackier. . IT'S UP to the defensive man to keep hands off when a runner goes out of bounds, say the new rules . . . otherwise, 15 yards for roughness! * * * A PAIR of clarifications are lo be made before autumn . . . whether handing the ball forward to another player behind the line of scrimmage is a forward pass will be settled , . . the sections on pass interference will also be clarified. High school athletic rulemakers also plan to sit in with the National Collegiate Athletic association's code-builders . . . to eliminate the differences between the two rulehooks on such items as illegal touching- of a kicked ball, fouls behind the goal line, the far catch, and the kickoff. * * * HURDLING IS now defined as jumping over any player with both feet or knees forward, in inother change . . ..formerly it was only illegal to jump over an opponent who was on both feet. The referee will notify-both the captain and coach of . a .team which has. taken its-third, time out during a half, according to another proposal. MEASURES HAVING purely to do with safety include four sections: The federation plans a study of equipment, with the view to making it mandatory that high school players wear a helmet that offers protection for nose and teeth . . . like the "iron masks" worn by half a dozen Mason Cityans last season. The rulemakers would also prohibit games until after adequate practice has been completed. * * * THE PRESENCE of a doctor at all games' is another safety measure listed . . . the physician shall have final word concerning men returning to a game after an injury, under the new proposal. The national federation also fa.vors more football clinics, to teach better football technic, safety measures and official interpretations of the rules. Odds and Ends . . . LEE A. RIDDER of Klemme holds some short of a record as a sports fan Klemme high school's first basketball squad was organized in 1921, and he attended the opening game on that team's schedule. Since then he has attended every home game at Klemme, except for two seasons, during which he lived in Manly . . . and he attended every home game there to keep his record perfect! The Klemme fan games since 1921 ha.s seen 977 an average of 65 a season . .. including high school and independent games, girls' games, sectional, district and final sessions of the high school state tournament, and independent tournament. He has seen six complete sectionals, four complete district tournaments . . . and parts of two state tournaments. HANS PUSCH . . . if he hasn't located them yet . . . would be happy if the person who ran off with the Decker's Hot Shot and Sweet Pickle signa . . . part of the Decker's bowling league equipment . . . would return them . . . the hand that rocks the cradle also is pretty good at directing a basketball team . . . with Coach Warren Littrell ill and una.ble to make the trip. Mrs. Littrell brought the Fort Scott junior college basketball team to Baldwin and directed it to a 24 to 18 win over the Baker university freshmen. Jack Saltzgaver on Jaunt South to Join Yank Squad KEOKUK, (.?)--Jack Saltzgaver, utility infielder with the New York Yankees, is enroute to St. Petersburg, Fla., although his club is not scheduled to report until March 1.

Mason City high school has a basketball team this season. Fact is. though, the stay-at-homes haven't seen the Mohawks play for a month, for it was Jan. 14 when they last appeared, on the Mason City court. Charles City was the 47 to 9 victim on that occasion, with Howard Stoecker putting on a circus performance to score 21 points. But Friday night, Feb. 14. the Mohawks are coming home. They'll have Waterloo East high as their opponent, and that fact means something all by itself.

However, there still exists a mathematical chance for a first- place tie, provided that both Waterloo East and Fort Dodge, opponent for next week, can beat Mason City. The Mohawks are betting that neither team can do it. The Mason City team has played half a dozen games during its 1,500 miles of traveling, rolled up during- the" last" month. Against tough opposition, the Mohawks lost to Moline, 111., and Davenport during that long stand on foreign courts. Mason City victims were Fort Dodge, Waterloo West, Dubuque and Cedar Rapids Franklin. Lose Two, Win Two. Waterloo East has done only middling- well in the Big Four conference this season, losing to Mason City and West, while beating Fort Doclge twice. Leonard Raffensperger's Trojans have also had a medium-good season against other North Iowa opponents. East has beaten Charles City, 33 to 14, Wilson of Cedar Rapids, 36 to 25, Teachers High of Cedar Falls, 40 to 22, and Fort Dodge, 25 to 12, since it last opposed Mason Citj'. The Mohawks, remember, won the previous meeting of the teams, at East's newly-remodeled gymnasium, by 20 to 9. Is Naismith Game. Friday night's game, in addition to being a homecoming attraction and a championship contest, will he a benefit game. The Friday night encounter is to be Mason City high school's Naismith game, with one penny from each cash admission going to the fund which is being collected to send Dr. James Naismith, inventor of basketball, to the Berlin Olympics. The program will open Friday with a contest for the Little Mohawks, who will oppose East high's sophomore team, starting at 7:15. The contest will be the last scheduled appearance of the high school reserves, since Fort Dodge has dropped its sophomore squad.

The Norsemen have won five straight loop contests while the Peacocks, inactive for two weeks, have taken three conference clashes. The teams are the only ones left in the undefeated ranks. Luther will be almost at full strength for the Peacocks. Charles Ritland. the center who missed the Columbia and Dubuque U. games, has overcome scholastic trouble and will start for the Norse. Art Lenoch, forward, will be the only former regular missing. He did not regi's- ter for the second semester. Parsons, whose victory string was snapped at six straight by a rapidly improving Simpson club, will attempt to resume its previous pace against Dubuque university at Fairfield. The Wildcats are now in third plane with six victories and one defeat. There'll be three other games Friday night besides the Lutber- TJpper Iowa clash. Columbia and Penn are scheduled at Oskaloosa; Iowa Wesleyan and Simpson are booked at Ind'ianola; and Buena Vista and Western Union play at Le Mars. Columbia meets Central at Pella in the only conference game Saturday night.

The S o u t h s i d e r s proved their right to the honors for the season when they defeated Holy Family Wednesday night at the high school gymnasium, 21 to 15, in a rousing court battle that saw the winners jump into a lead at the outset and maintain it all the way. The Johawka got off to a seven point jump on the Northsiders in the first quarter, starting out when Jim Shovein dropped in a free throw and Tom Peterson cut loose a sidewinder that zipped off the backboard and down through the net. Lowell Peterson got the range a minute later with a short follow-in shot and Tom Peterson whipped another flat, underhand throw at the backboard for the third goal of the game. Muehe Counts Two. Big Jack "Gus" Muehe got into action' for Holy Family before the period ended, caging two short ones under the basket, and Joe Madden dropped in a free throw to make 8 to 4 for the Johawks as the quarter closed. Madden left the game after making the point, to take a rest after a collision with Robert "Boob" Cavanaugh, Northside guard. The second quarter was the slowest of the game, with Lowell Peterson's flat shot out of the corner the only goal in the Johawk list. Cavanaugh picked up a loose ball and dribbled in for a goal at short range, and then shot a long pass to Muehe, who rolled in another to make the score 10 to 8 at the half. Plenty of Action. There was plenty of action in the third period, starting with Lowell Peterson's close-iti basket on a tip- off play, the points being matched by Cavanaugh with another short one. The Holy Family guard left the game on fouls a minute later, when he and Lowell Peterson each drew a penalty. Each eager made his free throw. Lowell Peterson got another pair of points as play started again, with a. running shot at short range. Junior Hubbard goaled the ball for the Johawks and Harold Ziegler added a Holy Family free throw as the quarter ended with the Johawks ahead 17 to 12. Matltlen Clinches Game. Jesse Vega's tip-up goal was the only counter for Holy Family in the last period, with the exception of another free toss by Harold Ziegler. With the Johawk margin set at 17 to 15 in the waning seconds of the game, Joe Madden stood unhampered under the basket and stretched in a pair of goals to make the final count 21 to 15. Holy Family's reserves won the honors of the season from the Little Johaivks, beating them 12 to 7 in a preliminary game. Although the Southsiders were away to a 4 to 1 lead in the first quarter, Holy Family brought the total to 4 to 3 at the half, and went ahead in the third period, 7 to 5 on Jesse Vega's short goal. Pat Laughlin and Jesse Vega added fieldgoals and Francis "Dolly" Dahlstrom caged a free toss in the last period, while Jisgs Cahalan was credited with the only ;oal for the Little Johawks.

A fight to stay out of the cellar will keep Mason City high school's wrestling team busy Friday, when Coach Howard Barker's Mohawks tour to Waterloo to meet the West high team coached by Finn B. Eriksen, who led New Hampton to a state championship in 1933. Eriksen is in his first season as coach at the Waterloo school. Neither Mason City nor West has won a Big Four conference meet this season, the Mohawks losing to Waterloo East by 23 to 11 and to Fort Dodge, in their last meet but one. by 34 to 6. West lost to East as the two schools battled for home-town honors in a match Jan. 31. Coach Harry Sievers' boys trimmed their city 'rivals by 20 to 12, acquiring five decisions and a single fall in a long meet that included a majority of split period bouts and three overtime contests. The. outcome of the Friday night match will make no difference in the Big Four result, except to determine which team will be pushed into the cellar position. Fort Dodge clinched the honc/3 of the season by beating Mason City for its third straight victory. The match is the last scheduled event of the Big Four season, and the final item on the Mohawk ticket except for the Mason City team's postponed meeting with Osage. The Osage match will have to be sandwiched in between the Waterloo engagement and the district tournament at Eldora, scheduled for next week.

IOWA CITY--The quarter mile and mile relay marks, made by the University of Iowa sprinters at the 1935 Kansas relays, now stand as American intercollegiate records. Credit officially has been given to the Hawkeye quartets in the 1936 issue of the National Collegiate track and field guide which lists the times as the best made by American undergraduaates in college competition. For the 440-yard relay the time is :40.5, three-tenths of a second uncjer the accepted world's record, while the 880-yard performance was 1:25.2. Andy Dooley, Wilson Briggs, Carl Nelson and Jimmy Owen formed both teams. The Hawkeyes' quarter mile time erased the mark of :41.1 set by Kansas in 1931 and equalled by Southern California in 1934, while the 880-yard performance wiped out the 1:26.3 record of Texas in 1934. Mark Panther, javelin thrower, and Andrew Dooley, sprinter, are the Hawkeye athletes ranked on the 1935 National Collegiate honor roll. along with the relay teams. Panther, whose best mark was 219 feet 7% inches, set Drake relays, Big Ten and Centra! intercollegiate records, while Dooley ran the 220-yard dash in :21.3.

GARMISCH-PARTENKIKCHEN, Germany, l/P)--Clipping nearly two seconds off the Olympic record, Chirles Mathipen of Nonvay Thursday won the 1,500 meter speed skating title o£ the fourth Olympic winter games. Mathisen dashed around the course in two minutes, 19.2 seconds to beat out his countryman, Ivar Ballangrud, winner of the 500 and 5,000 meter crowns, and eclipse Clas Thunberg's Olympic record of 2:21.1. Birger Vascnius of Finland was third and Leo Freisinger, IS year old Chicagoan, fourth. Norwegian Skier Wins. Oddbjorn Hagen of Norway won the combined cross-country-jumping ski title. Ballangrud, who equalled one Olympic record in winning the 500 meters and smashed another in the 5,000 meters event, also was clocked under Thunberg's old standard and so was Vasenius. Ballangrud's time was 2:20.2 and Vasenius 2:20.9. Freisinger, who was third in the 500 meter championship, turned in the highly creditable time of 2:21.3 to earn fourth place. Freisinger and Ballangrud, paired in the third heat of the day, put on a brilliant duel of speed with the Norwegian ace hard- pressed to win. Hitler Sres Games. Chancellor Hitler unexpectedly appeared at the Olympic ice stadium today during the second period of the hockey match between England and Hungary.

Thrcadgill, who wants to do 6 feet 9 before he's through, smashed the previous junior indoor mark by almost three inches, as he and five other athletes set up new records in the annual competition. His performance of 6 feet, 6'/s inches took precedence as the outstanding showing of the meet, but pushing him hard for the honors were the other record-crackers--Ed Siegel, New York flash, with a 5.3 second dash in the 50 meter spring; Walt Nachoney of Temple with a 9" minutes, 34 seconds run in the 3,000 meter steeplechase; Bob Schue- ncman, Penn's rangy football end, with a 21 foot, 4% inch leap in the broad jump; Joe Robinson of the Newark A.
