MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 17 NINE LOCAL SPORTS SCHEDULE MOVES AHEAD By Al Mitchell Out of the Pressbox IT'S BEEN 36 years since the first university of Iowa basketball team went on the road . . . at the invitation of Minnesota . . . and lost two games, one to the University of Minnesota, the other to Minnesota State agricultural college. In fact, it's been a little longer than that . . . . for H was Jan. 5, 1900, that six Hawkeyes boarded an evening train at Iowa. City, and sat up all night in an ordinary day coach while they toured to Minneapolis. ' * « * BIGHT AFTER breakfast, Ihe lowans went to the Minnesota gymnasium ... practiced all morning ... played the university team in the afternoon and the agricultural college in the evening . . . boarded the train again for another all-night session . . . and thought they were having a grand time: * * * EXPENSES WERE guaranteed for five players and their coach. Dr. Fred W. Bailey, now of Cedar Rapids ... and the young coach was a fairly busy fellow, for when one of his players had to take a rest, it was tip to Bailey to fill in the lineup. In addition, two of the lowans were skilled gymnasts . . . and with Bailey, they "rested" between halves by entertaining the spectators, with tumbling feats and performances on the horizontal and parallel bars. * * * IOWA HAD a perfect alibi for losing its two games at Minneapolis . . . the Minensota. court was five times as big as the Hawkeye's home floor. The Iowa basketball court was in the old university Y. M. C. A., located in Close hall . . . now the center of the school of journalism at the university. The gymnasium later became the composing room and press pit of The Daily lowan, student newspaper . . . until new flooring was laid in 1932, anchor plates for gymnasium apparatus were still fixed solidly in the old boards . . . and one of the original backboards was still in place, used as a support for a clock, until 1935, when the old court was closed with a floor to provide an editorial room for the university newspaper, * « THE SEATING capacity was 125 t . . admission was 25 cents . . . but crowds were slim, for basketball had only been invented in 1891 . . . and ' had been brought to the. university in 1893 by H. F. Kallenberg, who was one of Dr. James Naismith's students at Springfield college, where the game began. * * * ONLY WHEN the girls' team played was there a sellout . . . no men were allowed to watch when the feminine athletes practiced, clad in high-necked, long-sleeved blouses, long 'bloomers and long black cotton stockings. But the bars were let down when the lassies played a scheduled contest. And the house was packed. But the girls didn't look so funny, at that . . . the men wore football pants, long stockings, jerseys with padded elbows and shoulders . . . sometimes a rubber noseguard. They bought their own suits . . . the "Y" owned one basket- t';| ball'and if the players wanted another, they bought their own. * * '* THE GAME was rough enough to make all the padding necessary when the ball went outside, it came back in the hands of the first player to get to it. There was no dribble, a player could take no steps, and had to jump for the ball with both hands in the air ... field goals and free throws were good for EVENTS ON LISTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE SQUADS Independent Teams Plan for Start of Tournament in Spite of Snowstorm. Mason City sportsmen cast an eye skyward early Monday, looked at the soft blanket of snow which fell during the night, and muttered "Aw, shucks!" But they were planning to go ahead with as much of the local sports program as they might during tbe week, starting right off the bat with two events listed for Monday. C. H. "Chuck" Lennan and C. W. "Chuck" Gasswint were bent on getting their North Iowa. Independent basketball tournament under way for the sixth season, figuring that with four local teams out of a total of eight, they would take a chance on the out-of-towners' getting here. Flan on Meet. Coach Howard Barker was still planning on his Monday night wrestling match, scheduled for Mason City and Forest City high schools. The contest was on the ticket for an early start, with 7 o'clock the appointed hour for the opening bout. The rest of this week's local schedule will see Mason City high school playing basketball here Friday night, for the first time in five weeks, as Fort Dodge invades the local court. The Mohawks are still looking for the single victory they need to make sure of the Big Four conference title, having been "snowed out" of their game with Waterloo East Friday night. West, Dodgers Pluy. The Waterloo West game with Fort Dodge, reported through the Associated Press as postponed last Friday, was played, West high winning '26 to 18. The contest gave West a temporary lead over East in the Big Four race, pushing the Old Rose into second position with 3 wins and 2 losses. Friday night will see Mason City junior college on the way to Carleton college, at Northfield, Minn., for a return game with the Carl freshmen, and the same date will see Mason City high school's wrestlers at Eldora in district tournament competition. The draw will probably send Coach Barker's squad against Clinton high school, which was undefeated until last week, when the river city lost to Waterloo East and Waterloo West the same day.

Back in Mil, Purdue Games Called Off. Two Sunday games here, with Sacred Heart of Waterloo scheduled to meet St. Joseph's and Holy Family, were called off when the Waterloo team was unable to make the trip. The Johawks are listed on Friday night of this week, with two games against Swaledale high school on schedule. The contest with Swale- dale, scheduled for the local court, has already been postponed once. Holy Family likewise has a postponed trip coming up during the next week. The Northsiders are supposed to go to Waterloo next Sunday to play Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Victory Academy. Tournament Listed. The North Iowa Independent tournament will be continued on Wednesday. Thursday and Saturday nights if the schedule can be maintained, winding up Wednesday, Feb. 26. one day before the state junior college meet opens. Mason City junior college was the only team to get into action last week-end, slipping out of town without any advance notices on Saturday for a tour to Estherville, wKere the Trojans kept their record clean in the Hawkeye conference by beating the Wolves, 42 to 20. Ivar Ballangrud, sweeping through nearly all of the speed skating events in the fourth winter Olympic games, led Norway to a team triumph that swamped all other ertrants in the contests.

With snowbanks over the telegraph poles it took H hours to get into Minneapolis . . . the team arrived after 11 o'clock on a Saturday night. In those days, the university band played for dancing after each basketball game and when Purdue failed to arrive, the- dance went on ahead of schedule with the crowd still at the armory, the Purdue squad hurried there, changed clothes . . . and hustled on the court . . . the floor was clear and the game under way just five minutes before midnight.

Attracted by the closing events and the presence of Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler and other hig-Ti nazi officials. 130,000 persons crowded into town yesterday to stand ankle deep in the mud caused by a sudden thaw, struggle with nazi guards in a riotous scene at the ski stadium after they had seen Birger Ruud add to Norway's numerous triumphs by winning the ski jump and finally to see the colorful closing ceremony at twilight. Crowd in Struggle. The ski stadium was the scene of wildest excitement when members of the nazi labor .=crvice corps blocked the exits for two hours until Hitler and his official party departed. The milling crowd, struggling to leave or to catch a glimpse of the leaders, shoved and screamed and was held firmly but roughly in check by the guards. Two'persons were injured, several fainted and many were bruised and scratched in the jam. Officials estimated the total attendance during the eight days ol the games at about one million, of whom 800,000 paid admissions to various events. No estimate was available on gate receipts but they were believed to have been ample to cover all expenses. Contrast to 1932. The games themselves, in which Norway's sturdy ski runners and jumpers and polished speed skaters swamped the opposition to -the tune of 146 points in the unofficial scoring, furnished a sharp contrast to the Olympics of 1932 at Lake Placid when the United States swept the boards. America managed to retain only one of the six titles it won at Lake .Placid, the two-man bobsled championship. Ivan Brown and Alan Washbond of Keene Valley, N. Y., skimmed down the icy chute Saturday to win that event by a bare fraction of a second. An even greater upset came in the hockey where Great Britain sheared Canada of the laurels she had won in every previous Olympic competition after a bitter .lories of arguments over the eligibility of two British players. k Sports in Shorts WEEK-END REVIEW By The Associated I'ress.

In addition to the Purdue-Northwestern and Indiana-Wisconsin battles Saturday, Michigan goes to Iowa, and Minnesota meets Illinois at Champaign. Ohio State did a thorough job of hauling Indiana out of a share of first place. The Buckeyes, led by Warren Whitlinger. took the lead early and steadily increased it. Tippy bye. little Ohio State guard, helped the cause by holding Ken Gunning, Hoosier leading scorer, to a single field goal. Purdue had Northwestern down 25 to 15, with four minutes left, but had to strangle a terrific closing drive by the Wildcats to win. Wildcats Fight for Win. Northwestern trimmed the mar gin to two points, 29 to 27, before the Boilermakers nould get the situation under control again. Bob Kes- slcr, as usual, paced Purdue, scoring 11 points. Illinois scored its second victory of the season over Wisconsin, 36 to 20. to go into a tic with Michigan for third place.

BADGERS MAY BE IN BAD GRACE ON WESTERN CIRCUIT Big Ten Faculty Board Head Says Wisconsin Violated Conference Ruling. By CHARLES DUNKLET Associated Press Sports Writer. CHICAGO. JP--The cleanup o£ the University of Wisconsin athletic department tangle may have stirred up another investigation. Prof. George A. Works of the University of Chicago, chairman of the western conference faculty athletic committee. Monday polled the other nine members of his group, to determine whether an investigation of the Badger situation should bo made. Professor Works said that, in his judgment, the Wisconsin board of regents had violated a conference rule which vests control of athletics in the faculty, by ordering the dismissal of Dr. Walter E. Meanwell, director of athletics and Dr. Clarence W. Spears, head football coach. Sunlit May Get Job. The campus at Madison buzzed with reports that Guy Sundt, assistant, football coach and winner ot eight letters in his athletic career at Wisconsin, would be named new- director of athletics. Sundt, who has been connected with the athletic department since 1824, refused to take sides in the squabble between Meanwell and Spears. Sundt played fullback at Wisconsin in 1918, 1920, and 1921. The Big Ten faculty committee wag schecdulcd to meet in a special session cither late this month or early in March to consider prohibiting radio broadcasts of football games. Appointment Rule Cited. Professor Works, who was called, before the board of regents at Madison Friday to interpret Big Ten. rules, said he believed the regents violated a conference rule which provided that "no coach shall be appointed except by the university joveming body upon recommendation of the faculty or president in the regular way." Professor Works holds that the rule applies to dismissal as well as to appointment. Prof. Works said, "it is my opinion, that the action of the regents in dealing directly with the dismissal of these men in other than the constituted manner, raises the ques- ticon of whether a faculty council actually exists at Wisconsin." Palo Alto County Tourney Postponed by Road Blocks EMMBTSBURG.

FEW CHANGES TO FOR FALL Suggest Slow Whistle to Be Dropped From Officials' Practice on Grids. PALM SPRINGS. Cal.. Feb. 17. i.-P)--The 1036 edition of the college football rule book was ready for the printers today, parctically the same as its 1936 predecessor. The national collegiate football rules committee spent three days here taking the old book apart. They put it back together with .several minor changes and one major "suggestion." The "suggestion" was that the so- called "slow whistle" be eliminated. The delayed whistle made it possible for a ball carrier to break away, kick or flip a lateral pass after he had been checked by a tackier. The suggestion means play will be stopped a split second quicker. VPIHT Iowa nt Bin-tin Vista. F R I D A Y Hr:il;c nt Tul«i. n H n t i r l l at \ V i i - h l n s t i i n . Rlpon »t Cornell.
