ZETTE MASON CITY, IOWA, FEBRUARY 11 1931 OLD GOLD SPORT CARD GROWS FEVERISH NO REST STRAIN MAY HIT GEHRIG IOWA STARS SET TO BATTLE IN 6 TILTS IN 3 DAYS ] W l\AS MoT AMSSED A AMB iw THE PAST FIME UKE-tb see Bsor COK£COTIM AM6S By JACK SORDS Central Press Sports Cartoonist-Writer FRIENDS of Lou Gehrig and New York well-wiahers are hoping the big, burly first baseman suffers a slight cold, an ingrown toenai] or some other minor ailment early this spring. This, because Lou hasn't mlsaed a Yankee game in the last five ieasons. He's played in every single one and friends fear that the strain of trying- to emulate Everett Scott's marvelous record of 1,307 cbnsecu- ive games played may do Gehrlg harm. Hence the wish that he might ie slightly incapacitated,-causing him to miss at least one game some ime this year, breaking his consecutive-game string. The strain of trying to reach Scott's mark is regarded by many jaseball men as a contributing factor to the slowing up of Joe Sewcll recently released by Cleveland and now on the Yankee roster. Joe had d the 1,100-game mark when Illness forced him to the bench. However, before Joe was finally forced to the bench he played a lumber of games when he should have been out of uniform. If Gehrig, himself, is ambitious along consecutive-game lines he has nit to recall Scott's career to see that such a record isn't worth the jrice. After Scott set his mark his ability as a player lessened rapidly and the fact that he played nearly nine full seasons without a day's vacation did not keep his job for him. His record, dearly bought, was a curiosity, not an asset. NORTH IOWA CAGE SMOKE BASKETBALL IN MASON CITY.

Hawkeye Veterans Bolster Quintet of Teams to Meet Invaders. IOWA CITY. Feb. 11.--Their talents as athletes will be paraded before the friendly eyes of home spectators by some 60 University of Iowa men, members of the five sports, teams indulging in six Western conference contests within 75 hours beginning Friday afr.ernoon. Chicago as the opponent is track, wrestling and gymnastics, Northwestern in swimming, and Illinois and Wisconsin in basketball--those are the contests giving Iowa .athletes the most feverish period of home events in many years. Olympic Man Versatile. Versatile Edward Gordon, only Olympic athlete now in conference competition, looms as the track team's high scorer because of recent good performances in the high hurdles and high jump. His champion event, the broad jump, is not on the program for the Chicago meet. The Hawkeyes can muster strength in the sprints, quarter mile, shot put and pole vault, with likely second place winners in the hnlf mile and high hurdles. Among the veterans are Conway, sprinter; Ferguson, quarter mile; Kkowbo, half mile, and Canby and Albright, pole vault. Chicago, led by Dale Letts, conference outdoor half mile champion, already has won from Purdue but lost to Michigan State. Five Wrestlers Unljeiitcti. A quintet of unbeaten pfrnpplors, Mueller. Peer. Coons. Cuntain Payner and Haberkamp, hea.U the undefeated wrestling- team, which must meet Chicago's, likewise possessor of a clean record. Victory is needed if the Hawkeyes are to remain in the quest for the title. A battle to determine which team keeps out of last place in the conference standing will be waged Saturday by the Iowa and Illinois basketball teams. After dropping four consecutive games, the Hawkeyes hope to regain some of the form which enabled them to down Purdue. Wisconsin's team, weakened by the loss of three regulars, appears Monday. Swimming Vets Ready. Because Northwestern ha5 lost six stars who enabled t'.ie team to win conference and national collegiate titles last year, Iowa swimmers .see a slim chance to up.set their rivals Friday evening. McCulley, quarter mile; Evans, breast stroke; Nielsen, sprinter, and Lobdell, the Big Ten champion diver, are standouts nmonir the lowans. The gymnasts, like tlm track ieaiii. open their season with prns- nects for R fair squad, topped by riswold. former conference tum- ling chamnion; Mertcn, Berger, and Captain Lewis. Chicago, winner of the conference title last winter, is reported to be le^s strong now.

PETERSON Associated Press Sports Writer DES MOINES, Feb. 10. im--The Flying Dutchmen of Center college, unbeaten in 25 consecutive basketball games, Saturday start the second half of their 16-game campaign for the 1931 Iowa conference championship. A 38 to 27 victory over the Buena Vista quintet of Storm Lake Monday was the twentieth consecutive circuit game the Central five has won In the last two seasons. It was the eighth victory in as many garnet played thin year. Play Oittsldn Games. In addition, the Dutchmen gathered in five victories from amateur teams met before the start of the conference season to put themselves in form for the gruelling- 16-gamo loop season. Unless the Dutchmen stage a complete reversal of the form that has made them perhaps the outstanding cake team in the state, they should go thru the rest of the season without great challenge. They turned back their most serious threat last Friday in an unprecedented defensive contest with Luther. In winning a 12 to 9 decision there, Central demonstrated that its defense is as potent, when necessary, as its offense which has enabled it to average 37% points a game. Luther May Bfl Surprise. Luther still can put; a blotch on the Dutchmen's season. The teams engage in a return contest at Pella March 9 and if Luther continues its victory march, which brot it seven straight decisions until it met Centra), that contest probably will determine whether Central shall have sole claim to the state title or shall share it with the Norsemen. Each team has 16 games on its schedule, a factor which makes the March 9 battle at Pella as important for each quintet as was their Decorah meeting last week. Both leaders go into action this Saturday. Central being booked to tangle with the Parsons Wildcats at Fail-field and Luther having a battle carded at Dubuque with Columbia. Parsons Strong. Parsons, in winning four of il.s first six games, has averaged "33 points a game, a mark bettered only by Central. The Wildcats' defense has not ben as stout as the Dutchmen's, however. Columbia, tho beaten in three of its first five starts, turned in one of the season's greatest upsets in walloping State Teachers, 35 to 27, last Saturday. The Tutors had hoped to continue among the possible winners of the circuit title despite their earlier defeat by Luther.

(,T--A: successful defense of the Ryder cup by Great Britain appears seriously threatened by the controversy between Henry Cotton, a leading candidate for the British team, and the professional golfers association of Great Britain. Britain will send a team to defend the cup at Columbus, Ohio, in ·Tune and the P. G. A. has ruled that all team members must tour as a body in America and return to England at the same time. Cotton rebelled at this ruling, threatening to withdraw from team consideration. Now Cotton has invited Percy Alliss, British pro at a Berlin club, Aubrey Boomer, and J. C. Boyer, a leading French player, to join him in competition in the American open and perhaps other tournaments. Of this quartet only Cotton and Boomer are eligible to membership on the Ryder cup team, Alliss being disqualified by reason of his long- residence in Germany. So far British officials havo shown no signs of rescinding the rule against which Cotton objects so strenuously. BRITTSCORES K DOUBLEHEADER Lake Lions Lose 20 to 10;' Hanna and W.
