^ -i^^ -- TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 7 · 1934 Mason City junior college meets Chero- Tcee Thursday in first round of state basketball tournament at Marshalltown. E*GAZETTE S Mason City high school defends district basketball championship in tournament scheduled for home floor this week. OUT OF V AL Successful Luverne high school has had a successful wrestling season. Very much so, in fact. Fred Graham's wrestlers were in nine dual meets and were never defeated -- they scored 2*4% points to 48% for opponents during the season, in competition with medium sized schools and the second squads of larger schools. * * In considering north Iowa athletic records, the tact that this school has lost only three dual matches in three seasons is not to b« forgotten. As It closed the season Feb. 27 against Forest City, with a 82 to 5 victory, the squad numbered 'five undefeated grapplers: Smith, 85 pounder; LJchty, 95; Wille, 115; Gene Farrell, MS, and Morris FaneU, 185 and 14IJ. Mattoon, MS pounder, received the school award for having earned the most point* In the season. Another fact worth noting is that all members ot the squad this year were Juniors or younger. They'll all be back tor more. « ? S Iowa high school wrestling in general is meeting with success added prool of that, statement being of- ?ered by ih« announcement that the thirtewitt annual state wrestling aiwt at Fort Dodge ttte season was a financially profitable venture. » · o · Finn B. Brlksen, New Hampton wrestling coach and president ol U» Jon-a State High School Wrwrtllng association, ·aid Tuesday that the state championship meeting grossed $631.50, twice as much as the Receipt* »t the Cedar Falls llnal last year. * a * Iowa is second only to Oklahoma in the number of high schools which .include wrestling as a ma or sport in their physical education pro- Sam and the number of Iowa wrestlers was increased this season because of, the sport's self-sustain- ine nature. It allows more participation at no particular expense to the school athletic department, or the state association, says Eriksen. * c * The north Iowa coach believes that Iowa is much better organized for high school wrestling competition than any other state. The district system is used, with first and second place winners being sent to the final meeting to determine state ·. champions and runnersnp. ·--i.. -.-- I...-...-:.-.* * . * . *··' A regular wrestling room will be part of the. equipment at Thomas Jefferson high school, Counci Bluffs, next year. The Bluffs school had its first year of wrestling and sent a team to the state meet. The sport proved most popular. . * » * Breakdown, Etc. Added to the news of his automobile accident, conies a story from Omaha telling that Joe Stecher, former heavyweight champion who was scheduled to appear In Mason City, will do no grappling for a month. Nervous exhaustion, the strain of too much competition, put him in a hospital. * - · - · · » * * In the scraps of the day's news- Howard Moffitt, Iowa City forward, ·was elected honorary captain of the "University of Iowa basketball team. He was second high scorer on the squad, getting 135 points this season, while Barko totaled 138. IP * * North Iowa basketball officials seem to be in good favor for state tournament finals. Alter King ol New Hampton was named for the state junior college tournament, Invin Edle of Bndd has been appointed to work the state high school meeting. The Budd superintendent has had long experience as an official. In fact, my first memory of his acquaintance has to do with his working a New Hampton sectional tournament of 1938. Rockford Cagers Play in Three Contests at Home ROCKFORD, March 7.--Marshall and Swift's Cleaners of Mason City defeated the Rockford A. C. cagers by 35 to 26, setting up a trio of shots in the last minutes of play to insure their lead.'zander of the Cleaners led the scoring with 14 points, while Krukow of Rockford gathered 12. The A. C. Cubs defeated the high school seniors by 20 to 13, as Schreiver and.Kohler gathered points each for the high school, and Linderkamp made 10 for the Cubs. Nora Springs' girls defeated the local Indie team by 28 to 14 in a fast game, Fields getting 7 points for Rockford, Colin getting 14 for Nora Springs. 15 Chickasaws Plan to Go to Y.M.C.A. Grapple NEW HAMPTON, March 7.-Finn B. Eriksen, New Hampton high school wrestling coach, will take 15 members of the grappling squad to the Y. M. C. A. meet at Waterloo March 23-24. Boys who stayed out for wrestling the entire season and vrho will return cext year will make up the team. DISTRICT TOURNEY OPENS THURSDA GRAFTON BATTLE AGAINST LEDYARD TO OPEN MEETING Mason City Defends Tide in Class A of Tournament; Six Games on Card. Four class A and four class B quintets, each heralded as sectional champions last week, will continue their pursuit toward basketball fame in Iowa-as they play in the district meet scheduled on the local court Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights--the winners in each class to go to the state meet at Cedar Falls next week. Mason City, Algona, Belmond and Hampton are the class A contestants while GraJton, Le'dyard, Corwith and Aplington will fight for honors in the B class. Mason City will be defending its championship, won when the Mohawks captured the district last year. Grafton and Ledyard Mix. The two outstanding quintets in class B will tangle in the tourney opener Thursday night at 7:30, when Grafton and Ledyard mix. Ledyard, winner in the Algona sectional, ranks as the favorite because of its superior record and because of a siege of mumps in the Grafton squad. Algona, winner in its class A sectional, was able to defeat Ledyard by a narrow 25-24 margin when the quintets tangled during the season. In taking its sectional title, Ledyard conquered Livermore, the quintet which shoved Mason City out of the state finals two years ago, 27 to 26; eliminated Fen ton 34 to 26; trounced Bode 35 to 24, and edged out Renwick 38-34 in the finals. Grafton Hampered by Sickness. Grafton, hit by the mumps which have caused Rappath, a star guard, to be under medical attention, may have to play a patched lineup against .he strong Ledyard five. Grafton beat Kensett 38-7, Rudd 33-25 and Plymouth 29-16 in winning the local sectional for the second successive ;ar. Algona and Belmond will open the class A play at 8:40 Thursday night, with neither team holding a decisive edge Belmond practiced on the local high school court Monday and Tuesday to become accustomed to the arger floor. Belmond, after drawing a bye in the first round of the sec- ional at Garner, whipped Britt 27 to 25 in the semifinal round and won the tourney with a convincing 37-15 victory against Garner in the inal. j Algona Strong Contestant. Algona, although not boasting such a preposessing record, is strong enough to compete with the Belmond quint on fairly even terms. The Kossuth county five has a team of veterans which smashed out a Jiorough 45 to 12 victory over Emmetsburg and then captured the tourney by trouncing Humboldt 28 to 13. Belmond decisioned the Al- ;ona five in a scheduled meeting. Two more class B fives, Corwitb and Aplington, will fight it out for r urther honors in the first game riday night at 7:30. Both teams jlayed in overtimes while annexing iheir respective sectional titles and ie Friday night game should be ilayed on even terms. Aplington Winner at Hampton. Aplington, winner at Hampton, trimmed Chapin 22 to 13; Allison 29-26; Alexander 19-18; and eliminated Hansell 22 to 20 in a 'thriller which had to go into a pair of overtime periods. Corwith barely sneaked through its first round, taking out Crystal Lake in two overtime periods, but recovered to beat Goodell 33 to 22 and trounce Wesley 37 to 24 in the final. Mason City, defending the title it has won the past two years, will stake its chances in a meeting with Hampton at 8:40 Friday night. The Mohawks will be fighting for an opportunity to tie the record, set by Roosevelt's Roughriders of Des Moines in going to the state toum* ment three years in a row. Mohawks Poor in Practice. In a scrimmage against the jay- see squad Monday, the Grimsley- men displayed an almost pitiful -exhibition of basketball. Their defense was completely gone and the Trojans broke through for baskets with ease. Should the Mohawks play true to form the coming week-end, they should have little difficulty in capturing a third successive district meet but if the squad continues its mediocre playing, the Red and Black may find themselves upset right out of the meet. Hampton," which was met in the 1932 sectional and given a 50 to 10 whipping by the marauding Mohawks who were paced by "Bud" Suter and Joe Fink that season, offers a stronger attack this season and may be a stumbling block in the Mohawk championship aspirations. The Franklin county five nosed out Hubbard 24 to 23 in its sectional tournament and continued on its path to the district by defeating Sheffield 25 to 10 and doubling the score on Greene 25 to 13 in the final. Angus Rump, Des Moines, and L. B. Martin of Sioux City will officiate during the tournament. Trojans Set for Wars of State Basketball Tournament Squad Meets Cherokee in First Round Only One Meeting on Card for Jaysees Over State. While high school cagers were ready for district contests, the barriers midway between sectional and state basketball tournaments, junior college teams were prepared to go into battle for the state title without any-formality. The title will be awarded and all issues settled in one tournament, that scheduled for the MarsbaUtown junior college gym Thursday, Fri- 'day and Saturday. Send Eight Men. Mason City will send, eight men of the Trojan squad to Marshalltown with Coach Clayton .Sutherland. The Trojans are in fine fettle for the wars and will get their chance at a first round opponent when they meet Cherokee at 2:10 Thursday afternoon. A win in the first round will mean that Marshalltown, Hawkeye con? ference champion in an undefeated season, or Creston, Marshalltown'a opponent in the first round, will meet the Trojans. The teams are in the lower tournament bracket. Guards Sure of Posts. MacDonald, Kopecky, Gibbs, Carroll and Smith, with Yelland, Neighbor and Gilpin, will make the trip, driving to Marshalltown Thursday morning. The first five named may be the starting lineup^selected by Sutherland, with MacDonald and Kopecky as forwards and Gibbs at the center post. The guards are almost 100 per cent assured of their starting assignments. The only aliment in the squad is a charley-horse that hampers Neighbor. Principal James Rae of the Mason City junior college is a member of the executive committee in charge of the tournament, and Clyde King New Hampton, will be another north lowan to take part in its action. With Fred Winter of Cedar Rapids, he will .referee the contests. · NORTH IOWANS HOLD MEETING 25 New Members Listed by Rod and Gun Club at Third Session.

CATHOLIC TEAMS IN SECOND BATTLE JohawksTake Cage Victory by Slim Score St. Joseph's high school has counted three victories against Holy Family tuis season in intracity basketball games. But the Johawks have felt their toughest opposition in the last pair. After the startling 15-13 victory scored when Wolfe sneaked through a basket in the last seconds of an overtime period at the class B tournament last January history tried to repeat itself. It nearly did. St. Joseph's won Tuesday night from Holy Family, but by even a slimmer margin, 17-16. Scoring Divided. Everyon3 on the first string- lineups got into the scoring excepting west and Cahalan of the Johawks, who entered the game late as Wolfe left on personal fouls. No one eager scored much, but about the same part in piling up the totals. If there was any particular edge, it was the Johawk's free throwing. The Southsiders made 3 of 6, the Holy Family team 4 of 9. The contest marked the finish of the ba£i:etball season for both teams and the end of the varsity trail for most of the players. Seconds in Prelim. A previe r of seasons to come was given when the second team of the two Mason City schools met in a prelim that went to the Little Jo- i hawks by 14 to 11. L. Peterson and Hubbard with 6 points, were the leading scorers for the Southsiders, while E. Cavanaugh got the same number for Holy Family.
