T. club held the annual family dinner at the Ed Williams and Mclntyre home Friday with 68 adults and 6 children present. The club will send a box of dressed chickens to the for Christmas. HELEN JACOBS AT TOP OF AP VOTING (Continued From Sports rose) Van Wie of Chicago, the national golf champion, who finished seconc with 48 votes, and Lenore Kigbt of Homestead, Pa., new swimming queen, who was third with 31. Due to the relatively limited sphere of noteworthy feminine' competition, the voting was confined almost entirely to those engaging in tennis, golf or swimming. Out- aide of these three sports, the only names mentioned were Anne Townsend of Philadelphia, captain of the American international field hockey team, and Mildred (Babe) Didrikson, all-around Texas athlete. Miss Didrikson, now a professional, cap tured first honors in the 1932 poll, due to her record-breaking track and field accomplishments in the Olympic games. She received two votes this year. Mrs. Moody, who won the Wimbledon tennis crown for the sixth time before'her dramatic default to Miss Jacobs in the American final at Forest Hills, received only three votes. The victory for Miss Jacobs marked her second straight winning of the national title. Although being under a doctor's care herself, "Helen-the Second" also had stepped up the No. 1 singles position on the American VVightman cup team, due to the withdrawal of Mrs. Moody, and scored two victories. HUBBELL LEADS MEN NEW YORK, Dec. ID. (/P}--In a year marked by some of the moat amazing achievements of this turbulent athletic age, a national jury of expert opinion today ranks Carl Owel Hubbell, lean Oklahoma Southpaw ace of the world champion New York Giants, aa the outstanding individual performer of 1833. The pitching hero of the World series, already designated as the National league's most valuable player, leads the year's stars in all other sports, amateur or professional, in the third annual nation-wide poll of sports ediors and writers, .onducted by the Associated Press. Hubbell is the second baseball star to gain this crowning honor vithin three years. John Leonard Pepper) Martin of the St Louis Cardinals, hero of the 1931 World series, ran away with the first Associated Press poll. Last year first lace went to Gene Sarazen, world ihampion golfer, who received only )ne vote in the 1933 contest. As the ballots poured in from all parts of the country, Hubbell stead- ly piled up a wide and convincing margin over all rivals. With the ;ield wide open to the star performers of every athletic land, the pitcher more than doubled the vote of his nearest competitor, fleet Jack Lovelock of New Zealand and Oxford, who made foot-racing history n a world record one mile race with 'rinceton's Bill Bronthon last July. Hubbell received 55 votes or near- y one-fourth of the total of 206 ast. Lovelock was named on 25 bai- ots and is the first foreign star to igTire so prominently in the con- est. Third place goes to Johnny Goodman, the Nebraska amateur who won the United States open ;olf championship, with 19 votes. Another foreign ace, Fred Perry, British Davia cup hero and winner of the United States tennis crown, comes fourth with 15 votes. COURT TIPS {Continued From Sports Fane) charge of the formal introduction of the coaches, players, officials and so on. One of the reasons for smal basketball crowds in Iowa Is the lack of seating capacity. Mason City is handicapped in this respect The time is coming when field houses could be built for a relative ly small cost. A friend of mine who is coaching in California told me last year tha the Mason City second team coul easily "lick any team that he saw play in California." Basketball does not hold much interest on the wes coast, because it is an indoor game and the people prefer outdoor sport; there. Once in a while the east produces a good basketball team, but seldom The middlewest is where the basket ball is played. Fenton Indies Win in Contest With Ledyarc FENTON, Dec. 19.--The Fenton Independent basketball team dc feated the Ledyard Independents on the local floor Sunday by a score o, 41-20. This was the first game for both teams but showed good pass work. The next game is schedulec for Christmas day with the Wes' Bend Independents.
