COURT TIPS By "JliDGF." THE INVENTION OF BASKEXBAJJu PPORTUNITY came to me several years ago to take a course in the University of Kansas under Dr. Naismlth, ...the Inventor of basketball. His story of the invention of the game is very interesting, I Dr. think. Naismith was attending Springfield college, a Y. M. C. A. school located at Springield, Mass. At that time there was football in the fall and baseball and track in the spring-, but in the winter months there was no competition in athletics except In outdoor sports such us hockey. Dr. Naismith said that he went to the school gymnasium with some friends, and that the group was Massing a football around. Finally i game of some sort was arranged, l.vltli two teams having equal num- I iers of players. Idea Was Accident. One fellow tossed the ball up at he end of the gymnasium, and it aught there and hung--there was he idea. "Doc" decided to put some ;lncJ of a basket on the end walls, o that the ball could be thrown nto U. The friends put two peach bas- |;ets on the end walls, about 10 or 2 feet from the floor, discarded he football in favor o£ a volleyball, proceeded to try to throw the all into the baskets. At first the players could run with 'he ball from one end of the gyra- lasium to the other, and they would ither tag or tackle each other j.nuch as in football. Tliere were nine Inen on each team, but this was lioon cut to seven and in the second lir third year of the game's history, 1,0 five. Baskets Outmoded. The peach baskets gave way to Kings and nets; when a ball was ihrown into the net it stayed, until it was poked out with a long stick. The players soon stopped the runLing: game and made a rule that |he ball must be passed from one to Another until tliere was a chance shoot at the basket. It is interesting to note, I think, Blow quickly the game changed to rts present form, and has remained Jnuch the same ever since. Within two years of its inception, |Jic players were using regular bas- |tets and five men composed a team Naismith contends that the llribble does not improve the game ut that a faster passing, better Contest would result if it was eliminated. Ul-Star Baseball Will Feature Cards for 1934 CHICAGO, Dec. 14. (/P)--The all- tar baseball game innovation, aopted yesterday by the major lagues as an annual feature, will tried in the American assocla- lon next year. The association magnates, full of leas for making the gamo'more at- lactive, yesterday drew up plans Ir a contest next July in which the Iigue leader at that time will meet team of stars selected from the |!ier seven clubs. Preliminary plans leated the game will be played [her at Columbus or Minneapolis. the squad this week. It is the first time in many years that two captains will lead the Mohawks into action during: the season. Sitter will probably be on the first string Friday, but Burns, who recently completed his fourth year on the football team and captained the Mohawk gridders the past season, will most likely start in the second team's lineup. Football injuries, absence from practice and other factors have put. the Mohawk veteran of last season on the second team-at least for a short time. Suter follows in the footsteps of his brother. "Bud," all state forward, who led the 1931 quintet. Mohawk Second Team. Return of last year's cage grad- uatea to do battle with the current edition of Mohawks should provide one of the high-spots of the evening Friday, and will undoubtedly provide a severe test for the Mohawk's, The graduates handed the untried and untested Mohawks an easy defeat last spring in a tilt held during spring practice, but drill has smoothed the current team's offense and bettered its defense. Jack Neighuors and Morrie Zander will be at the forward positions for the alumni team; Joe Fink is coming from Cornell college to hold down the pivot position; and Dexter Smith and Paxson Shaffer will post themselves at guard. Jack Struyk, guard, and Starr Yelland, center, will be In reserve for the graduates. Veterans Como Back. On the Mohawks' second team which will play one entire game Friday night are "Hed" Hcrbenar and "Zeke" Farrer at the forward wall; Howard Stoeckev at center; and Gayle Snell and Bobby Burns at guard. Stoecker and Snell in particular have displayed first string ability and are trying hard for varsity positions. Other members of the Mohawk squad who may see some action Friday night are Gayle Lane, Cliff Hathaway and Costa Rumellote, forwards; Fletcher, center; and Getz and "Hun" Hert, guards. St. Ansgar, which faces the Mohawks in the windup of the double bill Friday, is of an unknown quantity but the size of Mason City's team gives it an edge over the representatives of the four-square conference. Carl Hass, former Olympic sprinter, will referee the season's opener. Baseball's Annual Powwow Near to Conclusion Hot Contests on Cage Bill in "Y" Loop Near-Tie Broken With Long Tries in Win by Marshalls. A. hot contest, tied at 22-ail with three minutes to go, was the "windup" .dish served at the Y. M. C. A. basketball league games of Wednesday night. Marshall-Swift cagers took the decision by 27 to 22 over Diamond Bread, Mathiason and Tracy each counting at long range in the final minutes, and Murray adding a gift point called on a technical foul. Another .close game gave a 24-22 victory to Hamilton's over Decker's, and the Y Seniors were the victims of sharpshooting by Billman Transfer as they lost by 42 to 8. Suter and Cordle of the Transfers took the high scoring points, each rolling in nine baskets from the floor. Miller led the pack in the Decker-Hamilton contest with five goals and a free throw. Isaacson's three goals and three gift points set him up as pace-maker for the Diamond Bread-Marshall- Swift game. The scores: BIU.MAX--II Ponzi Takes Higher Ranking in Tourney CHICAGO, Dec. 14 (/P)--Although not highly rated in the advance dope, Andrew Ponzi, Philadelphia Italian, today was the man to beat in the world pocket billiard title tournament. He had a close call yesterday, lagging a long way behind Charles Seaback of Astoria, N. Y., but rallied to win, 125 to 109, in 25 innings for his fifth straight victory. Ponzi will defend his position tonight against Ralph Greenleaf of New York, the defending champion, and this afternoon Taberski was matched with Pasquale Natalie of Chicago, and the Pliiladelphians, Kelly and Mosconi, were opposed.

GRID COACH IN CHfiRLES CITY Solem Speaks at Dinner for Football Team; Pays Tribute to Jessup.

LIVE BALL HOLDS INTEREST AT BIG LEAGUE SESSIONS Traders Get in Last Licks as Meeting Draws Near to End for Year. By WIMJAM ^VEEKES Associated Tress Sports Writer. CHICAGO, Dec. 14. UP)--Major league club owners drew off by themselves today for their joint meeting, while the traders gathered arcound to get in their last licks before the annual powwow broke up. Foremost on the program of the joint meeting: was the discussion of a standard baseball, and it was expected that both leagues would be committed to the use of a similar sphere by the time the meeting ended. Five of the six National eague managers present yesterday took the initiative in the movement, recommending that a livelier ball be adopted. Onlv Bill Terry, leader of the world" champion New York Giants, voted against the recommendation, which was not unexpected considering the capable ways in which his hurlers maneuvered with the less lively ball used in the league last summer. Afay Change Both. The prospect was that tho National league magnates -would agree to a ball similar to the American league standard, or that alterations might be made in both baseballs to make them alike. Trading continued at a record clip again yesterday, and there was plenty of life in the pastime today. The St. Louts Browns, with Rogers Hornshy doing the negotiating, headed the list yesterday He traded outfielder Car! Reynolds to the still unsatisfied Boston Hed Sox fy Pitcher Ivy Pmil Andrews, and Outfielder Smcad Jolley. He had no more laid his hands on Jolley than he included the big slugger in n deal with the Hollywood stars for Shortstop Allen Strange. The Browns also parted with Pitcher Wallace Hebert and Shortstop Jim Levey in the transaction. Hornsby called It a day after buying- George PucciticIIo, former Cardinal outfielder, from Rochester. Boston Hejit Busy. Boston kept busy by sending David Dale Alexander, who won the American league batting title in 1032, Pitcher Curtis Pullerton and Outfielders Harry Stumpf and Mel Aiameda, to Kansas City of the American association. The Red Sox also entered into a working- agreement with Kansas City, which engaged Roger Peckinpaugh, former pilot of the Cleveland Indians, as manager. Detroit traded Jonathan Stone, a young outfielder, to Washington for the veteran Leon (Goose) Goslin, and sent Inficlrlcr Billy Rhiel to Montreal. The- New York Yankees purchased Harry Smythc, a left- handed pitcher, from Baltimore for cash and a pitcher. Still hanging was a deal involving the Yankees and Chicago. The Yanks wanted Shortstop Luke Appling and were reported ready to give up Charley Ruffing, righthanded pitcher, Outfielder Sammy Byrd and Shortstop Lyn Lary. The Sox were said to be holding out for Tony Lazzeri instead of Lary. Klein Makes Agreement. The Cubs and Chuck Klein came to an agreement on salary terms. His salary was reported to have been fixed at somewhere between 521,000 to $28,000. The Phlllie management said Biirt Shotton was still manager, but the latter did not attend the meeting and rumors insisted that Jimmy Wilson, obtained in a recent trade with St. Louis, would lead the team next year. The all-star hitcr-league game, first played in Chicago last summer, will become an annual feature, and the 193-1 renewal probably will be played in New York. The game, which was won by the American leaguers at Comlskey park last July 8, drew a capacity attendance and 545,000 was turned over to the association of professional baseball players, which cares for the games' aged, infirm and unfortunate.

"Winning; or losing- g-ames doesn't mean anything," he said as he sat at his desk, president of Madison Square Garden. "Five years nfter a.iy season what will It matter who won any game anybody played on any certain date? These Things Matter. "But all their lives the things :hey should learn from playing football, the things that proper coaching and handling can instill n the character of boys of college age, will matter a very great deal. "One of the reasons football is a Treat game is because it teaches discipline. You can't be a good 'ootball player by any other method than hart! work and self control.

Mason City's higli school's runt representatives journey to Wright county Friday to tackle the Clarion ligh school grapplera in a meet vhich will inaugurate the mat season for both schools. Clarion has six veterans, who will aid four recruits .o the varsity, and are doped to make it two straight over the Mo- mwks' green squad. The locals lost 21-13 to Clarion last year. Coach Howard T. Barker's prote- ges have shown consistent improvement in practice but six new men on the team will probably deter the jrospects of a ilason City victory. Untested grapplers ave an unknown variety and may wrestle below form 'n their first competitive meet. Four Vets on Team. Walter Leewright, Johnny Wooc3, Mike Martin and LeRoy Mott are the only veterans on the first string. Thompson, 105 pound representative, is the only freshman holding down a varsity berth. Bill Pappas, freshman in the 125 pound division, has shown promise on the mat and may make the trip to Clarion. Ineligibility through scholastic difficulties has hampered the prospects of some of the grapplers. This item, coupled with the lack of veterans on the Mohawk squad, contributes to a pessimistic attitude for a Mohawk victory. The schools have agreed to wrestle with a weight allowance of three pounds because o).' the early season meet. "Under thi.s agreement, a wrestler may weigh in three pounds over the stipulated weight and still he eligible. ;;5 Candidates Out. Fifty-two boys are out for tlio .vrestling squad, the number oE candidates having dwindled since tlio tournament held the past two weeks. No practice was held for the second aquad Wednesday night since Coach Barker wished to concentrate upon the first squad. The ·seconds will resume practice Thursday, however. Coach Barker has taken up with :iis mat pupils the method of going behind opponent; method of retaining: an advantage; method in coming out from under an opponent; and phining combinations. The la.it named is n series of holds which, when properly and thoroughly applied, will lead to a fall over tho wrestling opponent. The team will leave for Clarion, by automobile at l:-l!5 Friday afternoon. Members will weigh In at 0:30 at the Clarion school. The meet is scheduled to start at 7:30 Friday night. A Transformation!
