THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 1934 OUT OF ,·' THE ·!*«' PRESSBO! MITCHELL^ Repeater Something- has already been said about the Elma high school basketball team and its fine record of this season, with only one loss ,in 24 starts, a percentage of .958. The little north Iowa school is planning to get back into state recognition after its performance of four years ago, when it went to the state tournament. The team is four square conference and Howard county champions. During that season four seasons ago 30 games were played, and 25 were won, for a .percentage ol .833. Members of the team were Jjyle Bellis, Paul Tate, Floyd late, Alvta Frank and Charles Parsons, Orville Frank being barred because his twentieth birthday came on the first day of the state finals. Grover Markham, Lloyd and Harold Kittled also made the trip to the state meeting. * * # Basketball at Elma is sort of a family affair. This season Lloyd and Harold Eiffler are seniors, and stand with the highest scorers of the Four Square conference. Fae Tate, sophomore, and highest scorer in the conference, is a brother of Paul and Lloyd Tate, as well as of W. H. Tate, Elma coach. More about that later. * * * Capt. Valden Frank of this year's crew is a brother of Alvin and Orville Frank. Ed Schroeder and Wilbur Weers complete the squad. » * o There is still another Tate brother, but he wears the colors of Independence high school, and is the leader of Mike Farroh's team this season. Oddly enough, Independence scored the lone victory over the Elma five this year. And Mike says that if he had both Tate boys there wouldn't be anything to stop Independence! Since Elma has had its present coach, 119 victories and 42 losses have been recorded. And most stunning of all the facts about this team--there are only 17 boys in school, 14 of whom are on the basketball squad! .* * * Lloyd Eiffler made 7 fouls in 25 games last season and 11 in 21 this iseason, besides making 221 points. ""Tarold Eiffler rang up 251 points, nd Fae Tate led with 280. * * * Here is the victory record: Elma 30 Elma 62 Elrna 43 Elm* ........ 47 Elma 33 Elma .... 30 Elma 47 Elma 29 Elma 20 Elma 23 Elma 20 Elma ........ 43 Elma 47 Elma ........ 33 Elma. 37 jE!m» 33 Emm 34 Elma 32 Elma 2S Elma 41 E!ma 46 Elma .... 2fi Elma 26 Mitchell ...... 21 Chester ....... 14 Mitchell ...... 29 Cresco tnwter Lacon, 111. .

Tutors, Simpson Win Last League Contests by Good Sized Margins DES MOINES, March, 1. CT)-Two Iowa conference teams closed their basketball season last night with victories. Iowa State Teachers took the second of a two-game series against Penn 42 to 25 at Cedar Falls. The Quakers had previously won from the Tutors 38 to 31. Simpson and Buena Vista tangled at Indianola and the Methodists emerged with the heavy end of 38 to 24 score. The home squad led throughout with Johnny French, center, looping in S field goals to lead the scoring. Skoes ARCH WEDGE INSOLES . . . the newest idea in shoe construction! A slight projection on the correctly shaped, one-piece insole acts as a wedge to firmly, but gently, support the arch and relieve foot fatigue. Smartness and long wear is assured by genuine calfskin uppers, fine workmanship and finest quality oak bend leather soles.

Hamilton-State Brand. Third in the percentage rankings as the play closed were Hamilton's and Iowa State Brand, tied at 7 won and 4 lost, and in the sixth ranking were Decker's lowanas and the Junior college, tied at 4 won and 7 lost.

Purdue's Midget Men, smallest in stature of any quintet in the Big Ten, nailed their ninth cage flag to the pole, oddly enough, by defeating Wisconsin this week. By winning next year Purdue may equal Wisconsin's record of 10 titles. Purdue's victory this season has been a clear-cut one. Averaging 40 points a game the Boilermakers went into first place at the beginning of the campaign and were never headed. * * * Here are the championship records of the two teams: Purdue has won the Western conference title, undisputed, in the seasons of 1921-1922, 1929-1930, 193l'- 1932, 1933-1934. Purdue has tied for the title in the seasons of 1910-1911. 1911-1912, 1920-1921, 1925-1926, 1927-1928. Wisconsin has won the Big Ten basketball crown outright in the seasons of 1912-1913, 1913-1914, 1915-1916, 1917-1918. The Badgers shared the throne for the seasons of 1906-1907, 1911-1912, 1920-1921, 1922-1923, 1923-1924, 1928-1929. Wisconsin, as may be seen, has participated in 10 titles, winning 4 outright. The Boilermakers now have won 9, also 4 outright. Next best conference records are those of Chicago with 3 undisputed titles and 1 tie, Michigan with 1 crown and 3 ties. * * The Badgers' great decade, 19121921, brought them 6 crowns. Purdue's greatest decade is the one closing with this season in which the Boilermakers, if champs again, will have won 5 Big Ten titles. Purdue has an excellent chance to tie Wisconsin's record of 10 championships next season though Lambert loses three veteran stars --Dutch Fehring, center; Ray Eddy, forward and Emmett Lowery, Norman Cottom, Ed Shaver and a number of other ace players return and, of course, Coach Lambert, one of the finest cage mentors in the country wil! again, be on hand to handle the golden-jerseyed horde. Here is Purdue's 10-year record: 1924-1925--Fourth. 1925-1926--First (x), 1926-1927--Second. 1927-1928--First (xx). 1928-1929--Third. 1929-1930--First. 1930-1931--Fourth. 1931-1932--First. 1932-1933--Fifth (xxl. 1933-1934--First, fx) Four-team tic.

Schmidt, who has chalked up an outstanding record as football and basketball coach at Texas Christian university, was in Columbus today, arid the Ohio State university athletic board had a meeting scheduled. On those facts and on the reception Schmidt received when he descended on Columbus last night were hinged today's reports. The Buckeye institution apparently has the head football coach it has been seeking since Sam Williams resigned to go to western reserve at 'lleveland. L. W. St. John, Ohio's state's athletic director, was to confer first with an advisory committee designated to help him select the person to lead the Buckeye tribe through the western conference wilderness. Only the fact that two members of the athletic board felt they owed it to two other candidates--so far unidentified--to talk over the situation with them first may stand in the way of announcement today of Schmidt's choice for post, some observers said. FORMER MOHAWK STARS IN HAWAII Russell Wright Named With Island Stars on Grid Team at Honolulu. This is hardly the time of year to get all excited about football but a delayed clipping reached Mason City recently concerning Nippu's 1933 Senior League All-Stars, the selection of which appeared in the Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu, Hawaii, that has interest in it for many local persons. Russell (Bob as the Hawaiians call him) Wright, son of Mr. and Mrs. H: L. Wright, 321 f o u r t eenth street north- w e s t, was p l a c e d a t fullback on t h e f i r s t t e a m . A signed article by Wallace Hirai, accompanied the selection. W r i g h t was a consistent player in the backfield of the Mohawks in 1928-29. He starred at right half during his last season in high school. Following graduation in the spring of 1930 he entered the naval school of the United States Marine base at San Diego, Cal. Later he was stationed at Pear Harbor on the U. S. S. S. 43. He has been in submarine service for the past three years, the expiration of his service to be next August. In writing of Wright's selection, Mr. Hirai stated, "Wright, the fullback, is a regular quarter. As this spot is occupied by Danny Wise, he has been shifted to the post that calls for most of the plunging. Wright, although lesser experienced, did everything that Kaakua did, (Kaakua is the 'hula-hipped Black Grange' of the islands) but Wright's punting was better and his defensive work was more outstanding. Time and again he ripped through the opposing line to nail the ball carrier behind the line of scrimmage." The lineup of the team sounds something like an all nation affair: Spencer, center. Lizama and Kuai- hilo. guards. A. Miles and Kaco. tackles, Jonah Wise and Naukana, ends, Dan Wise, quarterback, Kaakua and Kerr, halfbacks, and Wright, fullback. Lime Springs Cagers Win in Contest With Riceville LIME SPRINGS, March 1.--Lime Springs high school defeated Riceville here in one of the fastest games of the year. After being led 12-2 at the end of the first quarter, Lime Springs came back to ont- score Riceville and was trailing 16 to 13 at the end of the half. At the end of the third quarter the score was knotted at 20-all' and the playing was even in the last quarter, as the game ended at 27 to 27. A basket by D, Munkel in the opening seconds of the overtime gave Lime Springs the lead and the team resorted to a stalling game.

TRAINING BEGINS FOR MOHAWKS IN BASEBALL SQUAD Veterans to Bolster Prepi in Spring Season of Diamond Sport. Even though no formal call ha* been issued for baseball candidates, horsehide flingers of all descriptions have been stretching throwing arms and toughening their hands during the last few afternoons at Mason City high school. Coach Clayton Sutherland, taking time after his junior college basket' ball drills, and after the Mohawk cagers have finished their workouts, has brought his baseball aspirants to the gymnasium for "spring train- Ing." Strength Available. A good · nucleus from last year's squad remains for the high school baseball team of this spring, the coach says, and there are many members of last year's freshman squad available for building this year's list. A pair of catchers will be ready to see action this year, with LeRoy Mott, captain-elect of next fall's football team, and varsity wrestler, ready to step back into his old post. In reserve will be "Hun" Hert, who was ineligible last season, but saw plenty of service with the American Legion team coached through the summer by Sutherland. Fivo 1'itchers Out. On the mound, a pair of southpaw- pitchers and a trio of righthanders! will be available. Dietz and Wolske are the lefthanders, while "Babe" Suter, Shaver and Weaver do their hurling from the other side of the mound. Infielders ought to be the least of the mentor's worries, with DiMarco "Hobo" Crabb, Snell, Lane, Humphrey and Keith DeLacy available, Outfielders are equally plentiful, with Hathaway, Rose, Moris, Lilly, Pappas, Pat and Jim Mulcahy and Case all ready to make their bids. Last year's Mohawks, nosed out by Rockwell for the Cerro. Gordo championship, were just getting .to the point where hitting ability had begun to show up when the season closed. Added power ought to be available this season, the third ia modern Mohawk baseball history. There is plenty of nearby competition in baseball and schedullng~"o"f-~ games may be accomplished in great part this week-end as high school coaches.bring' their basketball teams to Mason City for the sectional tournament. Formal call for candidates may bring out more than 120 boys who can do things with a baseball. That number responded to the request last season.
