Only regular from last season 'Mick" McDonald will be at for- ard on the first lineup of the Suth- rland cagers, with Neighbors or Copecky to take the other front vail position. Luck Tall Centers. A lack of tall centers will l)e a Trojan problem of this season, but he difficulty will probably be solved y one of a trio of aspirants--Yel- and, Gibbs, or Heimendinger, who e£t the Mohawk camp when lie exceeded the high school age limit this 'all, after playing fullback on the Mohawk eleven. Yelland will find it necessary to avor a bad ankle, twisted in practice during the last week, and may not be in -hape to start, although he has done some work in practices. One of the forward possibilities may be sent to the pivot job in Friday's contest. Three .Bill for Guard. Smith, Carroll, nnd Struyk will be the Trojans who see action at the g-uard positions. Others who have been included in tha recent drills for the squad are DeLacy, Dakin, Yene- ricji and Priisia. Kohl will not be eligible for the game, it was announced Tuesday. Mason City meets Fort. Dodge, Emmetsburg, Estherville, Marshalltown and Boonc this winter in the Hawkeye conference. All are stiff opposition. Although they will not appear against the local cagers, Waldorf and Ellsworth of Iowa Falls are thought to be ready to make strong bids for conference honors. Trojans Will Improve. The chance for improvement during the Trojan season is a good one, Coach Sutherland said Tuesday. The Trojans and Mohawks will scrimmage Wednesday afternoon at he high school, and the Mohawks took on Grafton in a practice Tuesday.

ZliPPKE WOULD BACK COLLEGE Coach Still Thinks Gridders of Big Ten Could Match Pro Football Teams. CHAMPAIGN, 111., Dec. 19. OT)-Coach Bob Zuppke of Illinois, still hinks there are college football earns capable of matching the host irofesaional elevens. After watching; the Chicago Bears vin a 23 to 21 thriller from the Jew York Giants Sunday to take he national pro title, the Illini coach reached the conclusion that three iff Ten teams, Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio State, could cope with the lost graduate stars. "The generalship is audacious," he said, "and that is encouraged as showmanship for the sake of the ·ate. The play ranged from the magnificent to the ragged, but it was colorful and entertaining." He said he believed the pro elevens were under scrimmaged for tho reason that they must, practice with 22 men. He acclaimed the ball handling as the best and that he had "never seen harder running backs nor better forward passing.' His own Illini he believes, could score on the professionals because of the latters' "ragged defense." Zuppke, under whom Red Grange- became famous as the "galloping ghost" a decade ago, said tbe redhead "looked as good as any back out there." Diamond Breads Win From Woden Quintet by 35 to 26 Margin A victory over the Woden Indies was turned in Monday night at Woden by^the Mason City Diamond Bread cagers, 35 to 26, 'in a well played game.

By WILLIAM W.EKKES Associated Press Sports Writer. CHICAGO, Dec. 10. U')--Fourteen ;eH3ons in the American league liave not dimmed the batting eye of loe Sewell, the New York Yankees' third baseman. He still is the toughest batsman in the league to strike out. The official averages, made public today, show that Sewell, for the third time in his- major league career, struck out only four times, in 135 games, leading the American league for tho tenth season. .Last year he fanned only three times, in 121 games, and was cut down four times in 1025 and 1020. Ho played in 155 games in 1025 and 152 in 1020. Averages Eight Times. During big major league aei'vice which started with Cleveland late in 1920, Sewell has been struck out for an average of a shade more than eight times a season. He first led the league in avoiding third strikes in 1923, funning 12 times, and continued to head the list in the next six campaigns. He went down 13 times in 1924, four in 3925, six in 1920, seven in 1927, nine in 192S, and four in lfl'2!l. He was reported, along with Herb Pennock, during the recent major league meetings, as having- been re- cased by the Yankees. The New work management, however, later ·mid' both players arc still members oC the club. Foxx Drives Most Iluus. Jimmy Foxx, who led the league in batting, also wsis the leader in driving in runs for the second successive season. His-war club sent In 1G3 scores, with Lou Gehrig o£ tin; Yankees, accounting for 139 for second place. Al Simmons of the Chicago White Sox, landed third with 119. Nine players' drove- iii more than 100 runs, to 14 in 1B32. Following Foxx, Gelirig and Simmons in sending runners in were: Joe Cronin, Washington, 118; Joe Kuhel, Washington, 307; Bruce Campbell, St. Louis, 106; Charley Schringor, Detroit, 105; Tony La- zcri. New Yorit, 101; and Babe Ruth, New York, 103. Until Leads .Strollers. Three players, R u t h , Mickey Co- chntnc and Max Bishop ot the Athletics, received more than 100 bases on balls. As usual, R u t h led in free transportation with 11.4 walks, while Cachranc and Bishop received lOi! each. The same trio, along w i t h Foxx and Gchrig, were walked :100 or more times in 1932. Foxx replaced Campbell, the St. Louis outfielder, 113 the leading strikeout victim, fanning S3 times. Campbell struck out 101 times a year ago.

ADDITIONAL SPORTS ON MARKET PAGE HIGH Si'flOOL BASKETBALL IN OTHER STATES ANSAS, Illinois, and Indiana are leading basketball states, I betieve. I have coach-'l basketball in Kansas, and I am convinced that teams play as good if not a better brand down W there as at almost any place in the r- -ntry. This, I think is proved by the fact that Kansas university always is' far above the other schools in the Big Six conference, and I believe would finish one, two, three in the Big T^n if it were a member. It's interesting to note tho interest that is .shown in the Indiana state high school tournament, held each spring in the fieldhouse at Butler university. The building seats 15,000 people. Many days before the meet starts the r_gular reservations are sold out, and seats are sold at premiums by scalpers, much the same as at world series games. Basketball in Illinois high ^...ools has grown to immense proportions. I know of one city slightly larger than Ma»;n City that has a gymnasium seating 6,000 people. I know o£ another town of about 10,UUU population where the first game of tha high school season Is celebrated with as much pomp at the Marcli Graa at New Orleans.
