MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 14 · 1937 ELEVEN MASON CITY PLAYS FORT DODGE TEAMS n OUT of the PRESSBOX By Al Mitchell DO YOU KNOW? 1--Who was b a s e b a 11's Mighty Mite? 2--Who was the first heavyweight boxing champion o£ the world u n d o r Marquis of Queensbury rules? 3--When, was the forward pass sanctioned in football? The United States will not win the Davis cup . . . Dorothy Hound of England can beat Alice Marble of the U. S. any time they step on to the same court . . . and playing tennis for fun is not as tough as making shots for money before a motion picture camera. Those are a few opinions by · Fred Perry of England, once the world's No. 1 player and now a professional, while sitting over a luncheon table in New York.. DAVIS CUP TEAM MUST AVIN SINGLES MATCHES What about the Davis cup situation? "America won't win it," he pointed out. "The secret of cup competition is two good singles players. When I was an amateur. England had a pair of them in Bunny Austin and myself. 1 always figured Bunny was good for two victories and he figured the same for mo. So we never had any trouble. "But what about you fellows over here? You have a good doubles team in Mako and Budge. But Budge is also a singles man . . . and he must account for two victories if you are to win. That isn't enough guarantee. You need another singles man. And, under the present system, I don't see where you arc going to get one." , , * * =,-. In that case, Perry was asked, what is England going to do? "We have plenty oE young players," the dark-haired Briton replied. "Austin \vill move up to the ^number one spot. And we are continually developing young players 1 over . there . . . stars you never hear of. When Austin and I had the job, the youngsters couldn't possibly crack into competition. But they were playing along . . . waiting for a break like they now have. With me out of the way, there will be a terrific struggle for that other post. YOUNGSTERS CARTED ALL OVER COUNTRY "Over here, the youngsters can't work that way. Once they get to be good tournament players, they are carted all over the country and exploited. They don't have a chance to come along slowly. And they never become top Davis cup material." Speaking about the situation in the' women's ranks, Ferry said Miss Round, England's top player, could beat the American champion Alice Marble, easily. He also said that Kay Stammers could turn the trick. "Miss Stammers," he said, "was . unfortunate last year at · Forest Hills. She had to meet the defending champion, Helen Jacobs, and ]ost. Helen had a bad day in the finals and bowed to Miss Marble." 4 * NOW YOU KNOW HOW GOPHERS WIN 'Efll If you've been wondering why Minnesota produces national championship football teams . . . take a look at these figures. Modestly, Frank McCormick didn't tell much about this job when he appeared in Mason City at a service club banquet not long ago . . .but he's the head o£ an athletic program which brings 9,000 men into competition. * ~ i Of that total, nearly 2,1100 .were candidates for freshman and varsity teams . . . 1,274 freshmen and 728 varsity candidates, to be exact. More than 400 freshmen reported for football .last autumn, while 223 came out to varsity drill . . . 56 made the grade, 44 played in a collegiate game, 40 won letters. DID YOU KNOW? 1--Miller Huggins, manager of the New York Yankees from 1918 to 1929, was the Mighty Mile of baseball. 2--James J. Corbett, who won the title by knocking out John L. Sullivan Sept. 7, 1802, was the first heavyweight boxing champion under Marquis of Queensbury rules. Sullivan never was champion \vith the gloves, but was undefeated under London Prize Ring rules, which specified bare knuckles. 3--The forward pass was sanctioned in 1906. John C. Bell of Pennsylvania and Paul J. DashicII of Navy were instrumental in its adoption. PREPS TO SCRAP ON LOCAL COURT IN LOOP CONTEST Local Game to Push One of Teams Into Basement of Big Four League.

They oppose D'ort Dodge, co-claimant to the basement apartment, in a single basketball game scheduled for the local court at 8 o'clock. The Mohawks, who played one of their best games at Austin, Minn., where they lost 28 to 24, and could have won if a little luck had come their way, will be called out in the same order Friday night. Bob Cookman and Capt: Everett Fletcher will be at forward, Howard Gorman plans to take the center position, and Wayne Wood will hold his job, along with Harold McKenzy. Coach J. A. "Judge" Grimsle'y announced also that Jack Wallace had been reinstated on the Mohawk squad. Fort Dodge's luck has been 'even poorer than the MohawKs' this basketball season. The Dodgers have lost to both Waterloo entrants in the Big Four race, to North Des Moines, and to Boone. Coach' Ralph Bastian has only two lettermen from last season's outfit, Chuck Matticc, who can play forward or guard, and George Rich, a reserve center of last year. While the Mohawks and Dodgers are battling here Friday night, Waterloo West will move in on Waterloo East to settle the scrap for first position in the conference.

Humeliotc, whose status is being investigated by 'the Iowa high school athletic board, will not be able to appear unless the board rules him eligible before (he meet. The action has been pending since the first of the year, with the board making no answer to repeated Mason City requests for an immediate ruling. Clarion has had but two dual matches in the early season, losing 19 to 15 to Valley Junction in (lie first and walloping the Iowa Training School of Eldora, 34 to 10, in the second. The Mohawks will be facing defending state champions in two divisions. Paul Bell won the 85 pound title last season and Maurice Morford was winner in the 135 pound class.

It's going to talce the last game of the first round in Mason City's Commercial basketball league to break the lie that exists for firsl place and decide the half-season title. That was plain to see Thursday, as Marshall and Swift and Diamond Bread still shared the top notch of the league standings. Both teams won their fourth aamcs in the city circuit Wednesday night, the Bakers dropping Jacob E. Decker and Sons overboard by 23 to 17, while the Cleaners romped away to a 3G to 1G decision over an ill-fated Kami lion squad. Com Country Second. Corn Country Butter moved up to second place at the same lime, beating Pabst Blue Ribbon 21 to 14. The Cleaners and Bakers, only teams with a chance at the half- season title, will meet in the windup game of the three scheduled for next Wednesday night. Diamond Bread had too much of lead over Decker's Wednesday night, and a nine-point rally in the closing quarter, led by Harry Rholl w i t h a pair of buckets, fell short. Only Mickey MacDonald scored for the Bakers in the last period, but they bad held a margin of 21 to 8 as the third session closed. Cleaners Romp Away. The two giants of the league, Leo "Pat" Hyan and Ccd Connelly, pushed in five field goals each to help Marshall and Swift run up score of 36 to 16 in the second game of the program. Pabst Blue Ribbon and Corn Country Butter put on a poinl-for- point battle n the Wednesday windup, matching counters until Hie score stood at G-G in the second period. Bud Johnson and George Paul put on a 10-point scoring sprint from there, and the Blue Ribbons failed to count again until Ray Barr poked in a setup to end the third period. Each team B.V SII FEDEll NEW YORK, (fft--Reports of Ihrcc possible baseball player deals went the rounds Thursday thereby saving this especially dull hot stove season from taking a dive into its own cracker barrel for want of 'Something to talk about. The trade talk, such as it is, revived the talk that: 1--Van Lingle Mungo will go from the Brooklyn Dodgers to the Chicago Cubs pitching staff. 2--Buck Newsom is headed away from Washington, toward Detroit. 3--The Giants will land a catcher from Cincinnati. For a while it looked as if the Boston Red Sox might lure Moose Soltcrs from St. Louis or Joe Vos- mik from Cleveland. However, Tom Yawkey put the damper on such gohigs-oii by explaining he has learned the "for sale" sign vas definitely in mothballs so far is these two are concerned. Like Water Faucet. The Mungo-lo-Chicago rumors lave been turned on and off like ii faucet almost since last season wound up. Recently there was .alk the Cubs would get him, Brooklyn's classy third baseman, Joe Stripp, and Pitcher Paul Derringer of the Reds in some sort of throe-cornered trading. This, however, turned out to be too big a proposition for Chicago to swing. But Manager Charlie Grimm feels the addition of the temperamental fircballcr may mean a pennant next fal, and says he's still trying to land Mungo. Ever since Newsom let off steam against, the Senators in the public prints some weeks ago, he is said to be persona non grah with Washington Big-Wigs. Tha was the starting point for report: he would do his pitching some whore else this year. Young Purdue Ace Has Top Spot on List Gets Nearly Thud of High Mark for Last Season in Three Contests. By EARL HILLIGAN CHICAGO, (fP) -- Racing away o a great start, Jewell Young, peedy forward, leads Big Ten asketball scorers with 51 points n three games, almost a third of lie total which gave Bob Kcssier iC the Boilermakers individual coring honors last season. If Young maintains his hot )ace, especially in collecting free brows, he stands a fine chance if passing Kessler's total of 160 Joints in 12 games, of which 122 vcre on field goals. Young scored 3 points for the undefeated Boilermakers in 14 attempts from the ree throw line. He scored 19 field joals. Young isn't Hie only ncc free firowcr o n the B o i l e r m a k e r iquad. Gene Anderson bagged six Joints on six trys, while Johnny lines made 10 in 13 attempts. Ken Gunning, sharp shooting In- liana forward, is in second place with 37 points scored on 16 field goals and five free throws. He nissed but one free throw. Harry Combes, fast passing Illinois guard and forward, who has been playing sensationally, holds third position with 35 points on 14 field goals and seven free throws. In fourth place is Mike McMichael of Northwestern, who has 34 points on 13 field goals and eight charily shots. The small, fast Illinois team has Cocltranc Turned Down.

The same Trojan squad which started against Carleton college's freshmen, and went through the entire opening period without finding the basket, will bo ready to go again Friday night. While the Trojans have been having so-so luck with independent and college freshman teams, the Big Dodgers have been finding their path fairly tough against jaysee opposition. They lost to Lenox of Hopkinton, 21 to 20; lost to Northwestern of Orange City, 42 to 34; walloped Crestoii .17 to 18; nipped Boone, 26 to 25, and lost to Emmetsburg, 35 to 20.
