FOXX WINS 1933 SLUGGING CROWN More congratulations are d u e north Iowa football playera with the naming of the all-Catholic team for the state, with Mason Cityans heavily included in the list, as well as gridders from several other academies in Mason City territory. » * =? Especially glad are tho local ' followers of academic sports that the Johiuvks of Mason City have been given state recognition as a championship football team. They earned their claim to the title. * * 1'roblem \i There's a queer problem facing lie officials at the University of isAva, what with crowds packing |j e huge fieldhouse for basketbatJ mes. That's the problem of keep- 'g down the dust stirred by thou- ,nds of feet from the dirt floor of Le big building. \'t ' * * * Chemicals keep Hie dust down, ibut they are tracked on to the ;bleachcrs In short order, und are very efficient at "rusttng" L-clothcs. Other schools or the ji war department may offer a "t-jj solution. Both sources arc being -y\ contacted by university men. I* pcoreboard Of course there may not have i the enthusiasm connected witn opening of Mason City's basketball season at the high school that there will be when the "bi_ james come along, but there's one i fthing that will bear criticism. I! An excellent Scoreboard Is located on tho east gymnasium wall . . . but the vistiiig team was not named on It, last Friday. Neither was the score accurate tit the last minutes of tlio final game. * * L It happened that Official Hass J:ut off several baskets by St. Ans- t-.rar, which looked to the crowd as Idiough they should be counted in ,ihe score, when he called traveling [xnd personal foul penalties. As a Ipnsequence, there were few who what the score was . . . not aw who cared, we're hoping. Wins Over "Titonka Five, 23-14 I /LONEROCK, Dec.

LOWEST FIGURES OF 25 YEARS SET BY LEAGUE'S ACE .356 Good Enough to Win for Past Season by Margin of 20 Points. CHICAGO, Dec. IS. JP--The sheriff got moat of his stars, but Connie Mack will have the American league's batting champion, husky Jimmy Foxx, still with him when he starts rebuilding the Philadelphia Athletics next spring. The official batting averages of the younger of the major leagues show that the first baseman made off with the 1933 title with an average of .356. The figure was the lowest since Ty Cobb of Detroit, won with .308, 25 years ago, but it was plenty good enough to shade the next man, Heinie Manush of Washington, by an even 20 points. AVins Homerun Title. Foxx again won the homerun title with 48 roundtrip blows, and for the second straight year, amassed more than 400 in total bases. He had 403 35 less than in 1932. In addition, he was responsible for the major share of outstanding batting performances. He hit three' hom»runs in successive times at bat on Juno S, and the day before, made one on his last time at bat, for four in a row. On two occasions he hammered out four extra base hits in one game, to tic the league record, and set a new mark by driving In nine runs in one game against Cleveland on Aug. 14. Five times he clubbed in five runs in a game, and cm another day sent in seven. Manush Hits 221, Manush hit safely in 33 straight, games and had the prize collection of hits, 221. Lou Gehrig, the Yankee first baseman, increased his string of playing days to 1,350 and led the scorers with 138 runs. Two base hit honors went to Joe Cronin, the champion Senators' manager, with 45, and Manual! led In triples with 17. Ben Chapman was the top base stealer for the second straight year, with 27, and Mule Haas of the Chicago White Sox, had the most sacrifices, 30. Sam West of St. Louis, hit safely in six consecutive times at bat April 13 against Chicago, and Bob Johnson, young Philadelphia outfielder, scored five times against St. Louis Aug 25, to equal a league record. West also made four extra base hits, a double, two triples and a home- run, against Chicago on Aug. 5. Gchrlg Stands Third. Gehrig' was third among the individuals with .334, and was followed in the "first ten" by Al Simmons, Chicago, .331; Charley Gehringer, Detroit, .325; Luke Appling, Chicago, Mickey Cochrane, Philadelphia, and Joe Kuelil, Washington, .322; Bill Dickey, New York, .318, and Michael (Pinky) Higgins, Philadelphia, .314. The Senators led in team batting efforts with a mark of .287, with the Athletics two points back. The eight-team average dropped off four points from the 1932 figure, .273 to .277, and 30 regulars hit .300 or better, to 25 the previous season.

Ryan and Hcarity, of Mason City's Johawks, were chosen left tackle and quarterback of the first eleven in the selections, and Gassaway, their teammate, was named at right guard on the second team. Cavanaugh of Holy Family and Wolfe of the' Johwks, included in tho honorable mention list, complete the honored. St. Mary's roster of local gridders of Emmctsburg included McCoy and Jennings in the first and second team lineups, and two other north Iowa schools each named two gridders. Kclley and Besteniehner, both of St. Cecilia's in Algonsi, nnd Nagy and Mazzolti, both of Sacred Heart n.1 Oclwcin, were chosen, Zemii'r In 1.1st. lender of Assumption at Crcsco was another north lownn included In the honor While there to proclaim a iH no definite move state champion, St. Joseph's of Mason City seems to have a better hold on the crown than any other team.

Cecelia's of Algona, Holy Family of Mason City and Corpus Christ! of Fort Dodge were the schools defeated by St. Joseph's. Other Catholic schools in the state also boast of good records. There is Trinity Academy of Sioux- City, for instance, which came through an eight-game schedule with six victories, one tie and one defeat, including in the list two inter-state contests. Four of the players on the Trinity team were picked on the all-City mythical eleven. iiist Olio Loss. St. Ambrose academy of Davenport, with the Rev.

Columbia turned out a typical eleven, a hard-fighting aggregation which maintained the reputation oC the Dubuque school. The little Du- hawks, with Coach Crctxmoyer again at the helm, produced several stellar players who proved to be bad medicine to all'opponents: Corpus Christ! of Fort Dodge had an eight-game schedule, winning five tieing one and losing two. They nosed out St. Mary's of Emmet.shiirg- and Holy Family of Mason City but were topped by St. Joseph's, Mason City and St. Cecelia's, Algona.
