MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 20 · 1936 NINE PAIRINGS MADE FOR JAYSEE STATE BATTLE By Al Mitchell Out of the Pressbox Odds and Ends . . . A LOT of baseball fans live in North Iowa . . . and most of them have some big-league favorite . . . the luckier ones have seen their idols in action. But there are few of them who can say "Hello, pal!" to Dizzy and Daffy Dean, Lefty O'Doul, Mel Ott, Leo "Lippy" Durocher, John "Blondy" Ryan. Jim "Ripper" Collins, Pepper Martin. Bill Henshaw, Ernie Orsatti, Joe "Ducky-Wucky" Medwick, Walter "Rabbit" Maran. ville, Darrell "Cy" Blanton, Pie Traynor, Guy Bush . . . * * * A fellow must be pretty much of an old-timer to have that many friends in the big leagues . . . that's what you may be thinking. But Maurie O'Neil of Clarion isn't any graybeard. In fact, he's a junior in high school. Nevertheless, he knows that many big leaguers . . . and has their autographs to prove it. Last summer, he made frequent trips to ·visit his brother in St. Louis . . and saw plenty of big league baseball, not from a grandstand seat, but from the player's bench . . . where a grin, freckles, and a ready Irish wit provide a better ticket of admission than all the cash in the world. * * * FORT DODGE high school's basketball team, playing in Mason City Friday night, has had a tough year . and to crown the events of a bad season, the Dodgers can't even use their own gymnasium. With nearly every activity shut off in Fort Dodge because of the shortage of coal, the junior high school is the only educational building kept open . . . the Dodgers are practicing there. * * * And they have nothing on Chris Johnston's Clear Lake Lions . . . who are making morning trips to Mason City to practice at the Y. M. C. A. court . . - because there is no coal to heat the Community building where they usually hold drill and play their games. * * * PROBABLY THERE'S nothing worse than the various spellings attached to the names of Mason City junior college's basketball squad by out of town scorekeepcrs . . . f'rin- tance . . . at Esthcrville the box- score was headed by "Hirlene" . . . Merrill "Red" Herbener is more : 'familiar to the home folks. Johnny McCarroll, Loren Shickler and Paul Broham were others in the lineup for Mason City . . . as well as Dave Barger . . . and some fellow named Hardin who must have been on the wrong bench. * * * Last season . . . when the Trojans went out into the Dutch territory . . . around Orange City . . . the home-town scorekeepero added a netherlanciish flavor to the familiar names of Herbener and Harris Giipin . . . it was Hemhert and Deepen to the Orange City record- keepers. THE REV. PAUL LaValette of Holy Name parish at Rockford heard the writer make one of his earliest efforts as a public speaker ; the other night . . . "Tell your boss," · he said, "that you're almost as longwinded as he is." * * * Upon which the boss says that Father LaValette should be reminded of their American Legion fishing expedition in Florida a year ago . . . during which the reverend gentleman's catch was used as bait by the other experts of rod and reel . . . who were apparently after bigger prizes than he. * * * APPLAUSE TO the Hanlontown basketball player who waded snow banks for five miles to join his team at the North Iowa Independent basketball tournament . . . got there for the second half of the game . . . and turned in one of the better jobs of ball playing seen during that night's events after all that exercise.

FORT DODGE--Fort Dodfje high school's downtrodden cagers, in their most disheartening season since 1925. play the semifinal prarne of their season Friday night when they journey to meet Mason City's state champion Mohawks in a. Bigf Four conference contest. In 1925, the Dodgers in their first season under the late John B. Gough, won only 2 out of 15 games. The next year, the team split even in 16 starts and won a sectional title, only to lose in the opening round of the district tournament. Last year, the first under Coach Ralph Bastian, Fort Dodge's cagers PLAY MARCH 6 Mason City high school, taking advantage of the state athletic board's decision to set the annual Iowa championship tournaments back one week, will complete its Big Four conference schedule March 6. Waterloo Bast will play at Mason City on that date, filling its postponed engagement of last week. The Mohawks will travel to Newton Saturday night to play their return game with the Redbirds, concelecL.a week ago when lack of coal forced the Newton high school and Y. M. C. A. to close. The Saturday night game will be played at the Y. M. C. A. court there. Thursday, Feb. 27, the Mason Cityans will go to Austin, Minn., to play another postponed contest, and Saturday. Feb. 29, will see the Mohawks at home, playing against an all-star Class B team in a feature game on the state junior college tournament program. Friday's contest against Fort Dodge will be the first action for the Mohawks since they went to Charles City. Feb. 11, and the first game for them on the home court since .Ian. 14. when they also opposed Charles City. A Mason City victory would clinch the Big Four title, already nearly assured, for Mason City. STANDINGS BIG FOUR STANDINGS HASKETUALL IV. I.

Mason City high school, winning the return meet by exactly the same margin as when the teams met here early in the season, beat Osage's wrestlers in a Wednesday night match at the neighbor town, 30 to 6. Three falls were scored for the Mason Cityans, Cecil Mott, Tom Rume- liote and LaRoy AJitz tossing their opponents in the 95, 145 and 165 pound classes. Jim Cookman, in the 135 pound class, nearly had a fall, but was forced to go overtime to decision his opponent, while Resta Kavaya, Mohawk 155 pounder, had a chance for a fall with a cra.dle. The biggest Mason City advantage was piled up by Orlando Calicchia, 115 pounder, who held at 6:17 edge to win. The Mohawks will have only one day of rest before they test their holds again. Waterloo West high school. Big Four conference opponent of the Mason Cityans. will play host for a Friday afternoon match. The contest will start at 4 o'clock. enjoyed a winning season and went to the finals of the Storm Lake district meet before being eliminated from the state title chase. This winter's edition has won but a single game in 13 starts, losing 5 games in Big Four competition. The team received a stunning blow at the start of the season when Kenny Bastian. district tournament star at center and an all-state honorable mention, was declared ineligible because of attending school in Arizona for three weeks a few years ago while his parents were traveling there. Bobby Wascm, the other scoring veteran, thus became a marked man and when Wasem went to California for a month's trip with his parents, the team's plight was unspeakable. ' j In winning 1 gfunr and losing 12. j Fort Dodge has scored 204 points to i TOTALS 321 for opponents. Against Boone and Webster City, the team, although losing twice to each, did show flashes of form, as it did against Storm Lake, the only team defeated. Eldora won from the Dodgers 24 to 20 in the opening game of the season. Against other opponents, however. Fort Dodge has trailed at the final gun, the margins varying from 8 to 20 points. Coach Ralph Bastian will probably start Bobby Wasern at center. Dick Covey and Arnc Hanson, forwards, and Dick Brunnenkant and Al Wiren, guards. Other players who will probably make the trip are Chuck Mattice. George Rich and Vic Benson, forwards. Joe Gordon and Dick Heman, j guards.

NEW YORK, (.T)--With the baseball caravans either heading for the grapefruit belt or forming on the left, ready for the takeoff, a roll call Thursday disclosed at least 62 players have not yet signed 1936 contracts. This represents only about 32 per cent of the athletes on current major league rosters but it also indicates there has been much more haggling than usual with the bosses who sign the paychecks. Just how much of the argument over salaries is serious remains a matter for speculation. Loudest Is Dizzy. Loudest, if not the most serious of the holdout "squawks" has emanated from Jerome Herman Dean, who has, in this respect, assumed the ample garments once worn by George Herman Ruth. Both Deans are holdouts on the Cardinal list, which also includes Pepper Martin, but Dizzy's demand for 540,000, which would make him the top- salaried player in either big league, involves the juiciest controversy. Many outstanding stars have not yet signed, although Arky Vaughan, the batting king, has just some to terms with the Pittsburgh Pirates, and comparatively few are considered serious holdouts. Bucs, Cubs Not Worried. Paul Waner is understood to be the only recalcitrant among the Bucs while Augie Galan remains the only unsigned member of the championship Chicago Cubs. Others conspicuously unsigned in- ciude Hank Leibcr of the New York Giants, Hank Grcenberg of the world champion Tigers, Van Mungo of the Dodgers and Babe Herman of the Reds. Among eight unsigned Yankees, Bill Dickey, Red Rolfe and Ben Chapman are rated the most stubborn contenders for more pay. Buddy Myer. the Senators' second base star and American league batting champion, apparently won't sign until he finds out how serious Owner Clark Griffith was about tagging him as worth $500,000, if sold to New York. Marcum Wants More. From Boston, where the Red Sox are supposed to be just one happy pennant-hunting f a m i l y , comes word that Johnny Marcum, the big Kentucky pitcher, wants $10.000 instead of the ST.fiQO offered him. Zeke Bonura. first baseman, and Luke Sewell. catcher, both are reported to be demanding S15.000 from the White Sox. Last season Bonura drew 58.500 and Sewell $10.000. Johnny Allen, a former Yankee, wants a $2,500 increase, instead of the $500 offered by Cleveland. Waldorf Has Two Games on Week's Court Ticket FOREST CITY--The Waldorf college Warriors have two games scheduled for the next few days. Saturday night they meet Concordia and on Monday night they play the Britt Junior college team. Both games will be played in the high school gymnasium at S o'clock.

PLACE: Carlclon college, Northfield, Minn. On the road for the last time this season. Mason City junior college's Trojan basketball team wil' get a severe test before rcturnint home to open its bid for state honors among Iowa junior colleges. The Trojans will travel to Northfield, Minn., to play 1 Carleton college's freshman team, returning the visit that the Carl youngsters made here a fortnight ago. Carleton's squad won here 45 to 39. The midget Trojans will be up against the same problem that they faced when the tall Carls played here. Added to the advantage of size will be the fact that the freshman team will be on its home c ourt--a fact that should add a fistful of points to the squad's total. Roger Lockrem, who performed in grand style at guard when the teams met here, Bob Jackson, husky center, and Oscar Olson, sharpshoot- ing forward who accounted for 13 points in the previous contest, are expected to be the main items in the problem that faces the Mason City team.

TOTALS . l . f l f i l PATTY BERG S FOR GUP BATTLE Victorcy Over National Title Owner Makes Youngster Certain of Place. NEW YORK. (.-P)--It. may be several weeks before she's notified officially, but IS year old Patty Berg of Minneapolis is slated for a place on the U. S. Curtis cup team which will play against a side of British golfers at Glen Eagles, Scotland, May 6-7. Patty thrust her freckled face into the national picture last September when she put up a stubborn fight before bowing to the great Glenna Collett Vare in the final of the U. S. championship. Now she commands full glare of the spotlight by virtue of her victory over Mrs. Vare in the second round of the Palm Beach tournament. It was a triumph that virtually won her a place on the international squad, carrying with it the distinction of becoming Uncle Sam's youngest lady-of-the-links internationalist. Konsett's Cowboys, winners in a. hectic battle, and Hayficld's Binrk Raiders, who came w i t h i n 36 seconds of w i n n i n g the same contest, provided the thrills for spectators Wednesday night at the Y. M. C. A. court in Mason City, when the first round of the North Iowa independent, tournament was completed with a full program of four games -- the first full evening of play since the opening of the meet. The Brunsvolds from Kensctt were the fellows who kept their team in the tournament, \Viih Hayfield ahead, 29 to 27, as the teams Bested through a time out period with 36 seconds left until the end of the game, Pcrlcy Brunsvold took the tipoff as play started again and drove down the court to snap in a basket and tic the count. He got another shot a few seconds later, and angled the ball out onto the backboard. Ole Brunsvold, Kensctt forward, snared the rebound and tipped it buck up and through the ring, just ahead of the final whistle. Big scoring sprees marked, the other first round contests. Marshall and Swift of Mason City outclassed the luckless Crystal Lake five, 57 to 17, in the final game of the evening, scoring almost at will during the second half after a slower getaway in the first period. Leo "Pat".Ryan, relieved of his duty at center by Ross Santee, Iowa Falls star, picked up 9 field goals at forward. Britt's Hottentots beat Dougherty's Merchants, 43 to 13, with John Rydson leading the drive on 7 goals and a free throw. The Rudd Merchants, with Johnny Finch and Wolf leading the shooting, pushed the Woden Independents out of action by 38 to 23. The second half of the contest was a close fight, but the first sessions saw Rudd away to a 25 to 7 Jcad.
