Junior college and high school baskptball, with the biggest program of the season'under way" this week, will find, its center of interest in the home court, where 21 Iowa jaysee teams started play for their state title Wednesday. At the same time, high school followers will keep an eye turned toward Austin, Minn., where Mason City high school's Mohawks will turn Thursday for their postponed contest with Dick Arney's Scarlet cagers. The Austin contest, set back from Feb. 4, when snow choked North. Iowa and southern Minnesota highways, forcing the Mason City team to stay at home, will be played at the Austin armory. The Scarlets, losers in an earlier game this season, when Mason City defeated them' by 22 to 17, have done right well since that beating. They have advanced close to the top of their own conference, the Big Eight, and include recent decisions over Faribault. 22 to 20, and over Albert Lea. 25 to 18. Rochester's Rockets beat the Scarlets. 37 to 14, to cut them out of conference honors.

The junior college tournament, in its first day, promised an evening of attractive games, with Fort Dodge and Emrnetsburg's contest at 7 o'clock one of the big items in the schedule. The two "intersectional" contests, one between Burlington's Blackhawks and Estherville's Wolves, the other involving Lenox's Crimson Wave and Red Oak's Bobcats, are also hot prospects in the entertainment for Wednesday.

FEW STARS HAVE STUCK OUT THEIR PLANS FOR RAISE Hank Leiber Likely to Be Set for Season as Giants Are Playing First Game. By ALAN GOULD Associated I'ress Sports Editor NEW YORK, (.P)--Although the ranks of major league holdouts have given little ground of late, there is no reason to view with much alarm or believe that, for example -Hank Leiber will be busy opening day doing other than playing center field for the New York Giants. The stubborn character of the Leiber case, so far baffling the best minds of the Giants' headquarters staff, is not extraordinary or unprecedented. Hank himself lias punctuated a brief big league career with previous salary arguments. He threatened a holdout siege two years ago, before he claimed a regular job. It may require more persuasion and further compromise before the man from Arizona capitulates but it's a 1 to 10 shot he will soon be on his way to Pensacola. Bill Knows Answers. Manager Bill Terry should know all the answers in any holdout argument, anyway. Memphis Bill's squawks could be heard for miles in the years when baseball magnates were amputating payrolls. He was, in fact, going to quit baseball one spring when asked to take a 40 pet- cent cut. But he didn't take that big a cut and he didn't quit. Rarely in baseball history have salary differences been so serious that an athlete felt he could quit or 3. club owner was willing to let him do so. rather than come to a compromise agreement. Mike Donlin, a colorful outfield figure on the Giants of John McGraw's early days, made his holdout stick one season. Hafey Hangs Tight. Chick Hafey, when he was with the St. .Louis Cardinals, didn't come to terms until well after one season had started. Chick's retirement la.ter, after being traded to the Cincinnati Reds, was partially due to salary differences but he is talking now of a comeback. The last real holdout was another former outfield star of the Reds, Ed Roush. After being traded back' to Cincinnati by the Giants. Roush balked at all offers and stuck to his Indiana farm. He was about at the end of his big league career, anyway, so that there is no real parallel between his case and that of a rising- youngster like Leiber, Get It While You Can. The viewpoint of the athlete naturally is that he has "got to get it while the getting is good." He knows that the average club owner will not offer him social security when he begins to slip. Some magnates prefer the bonus system, as a means of compromise, but this is not generally in vogue. The players themselves 'like to "sec it on the line" instead of gambling for extra money. Inducements of an extra-curricular nature have helped the St. Louis Cardinals settle salary differences with several stars, including Dizzy Dean. Apparently it is not going to be so easy this year but the Cardinal front office last year persuaded Dean to sign a 517,500 playing contract as part of an agreement by which Dizzy was helped to derive substantial revenue, on the side, from endorsements. Similarly Cardinal executives aided Pepper Martin to "cash in" on his fame following the exploits of the "Wild Horse" in the 1931 world series. -OUT OF THE PRESSBOX- Dizzy Wants to Work--For the Price of a Ball Club Individual Ideas . . . MR. J. H. (DIZZY) DEAN denies he's an "individual" player . . . Old Diz gives the team the best he has, and he's just one of the boys working- for the club even when lie's on the "bench, says Old Diz . . . it just happens that he sends back an $1S,")00 contract on the same day when his "individual" satement is given out to the world . . . and when he sends it back he says he ought to be worth ?40.000. . . . Mr. Dean certainly is consistent. . . . He can't be accused of being an Individual player if he expects to get that much money out of the Cards . . . with $40.000 the Cardinals could sign up enough individual ball players to make a full-size team with a couple of extra pitchers. Jack Dempsey finds the ways of peace sweet and pleasant . . . ho takes down a certain percentage from the sale of a chocolate candy bar . . . in the last five months Dempsey's earnings from the confection have averaged $1,000 a month, all of which is turned over to a trust fund for his baby Joan . . . to borrow a term from the vocabulary of Old Diz Dean. little Dempiey Dizzy Dean Joan surely must be called an "individual" baby! * * * Joe Louis must be placed in the "individual fighter" class . . . since turning professional, the Dusky Disintegrator of Detroit has averaged more than $3,000 a round of fighting, and business is getting better all the time . . . compared to what Old Diz wants for a whole baseball season, Joe Louis could almost be accused of individualism of a very rugged variety. * # * Looking back, some names of people whose individualism was not so pronounced pop up from the past . . . Bob Filzsirnmons got exactly nothing for defeating Jim Corbett, his $15.000 share going to make up a promotion deficit . . . and the Tigers paid just $700 for Tyrus Raymond Cobb . . . Napoleon Lajoie was paid $5.500 the year he hit .405 to lead the American league. * * * Mr. George H. Ruth is probably the man most responsible for the "individual" idea in baseball . . . before the Babe started blasting them, outfielders used to have to pay their way into the park . . . baseball values were placed on a new basis- when his salary mounted past the $50,000 mark. * * * In boxing- Tex Rickard was the man who took fighters out of the haylofts and made them rich . . . made some of them even "individual" drawing room lions . . . made some of them "individual" Shakespearean experts . . . when he placed that little pile of gold in the window of a hank in Goldfield. Ncv., the giant of boxing individualism came and looked into the window and got a nidea. Now if somebody would just come along and "individualize" sports writing! DEAN READY FOR COMPROMISES BY CARDS, HIMSELF Dizzy One Sony for Team If "Me and Paul" Aren't in Roster for Season. DALLAS. Tex.. (.'Pi--Dizzy Dorm, who thinks he's worth $21,500 more than the St. Louis Cardinals offer him. Wednesday said he was about ready "to compromise a bit." Dizzy, official spokesman for himself; and brother Paul, the Cardinals' only holdouts, disclosed the club hnd offered him an $18.000 con- I tract. He think* he's worth $40.000. "I haven't heard a word from the ! Cardinal officials since 1 sent my first contract back unsigned," he said, "and I'll assure you that they won't hear from me first." But he wants the St. Louia front office to realize he's "not the kind of a fellow to be too stubborn," if the club shows any inclination to bargain. However, if things end in a deadlock, Diz feels sorry for the Cardinal chances. "I'll give you a promise that the Cardinals won't finish as good as second in the National league without me and Paul. They say they've won pennants before without us-which is very true--but they won't this year." With unusual modesty Dizzy said he didn't claim to be "any better than Hubbell, Warneke and some of the others who have been drawing down big salaries, but I do believe I'm entitled to equal consideration." Algona High School Wins m Second Local Contest ALGONA--St. Cecilia's academy basketball team lost to the Algona high school Tuesday night 26 to 20 in a return game played at the academy gym. The half time score was 13 to 13, both teams playing even, until the last quarter, when the high school gained its advantage. The public school reserves piled up a 27 to 7 score against the academy seconds. Patty Berg Sears Course in South Atlantic Events ORMOND BEACH, Fla, (.Pi- Stopping Patty Berg, the mighty Minneapolis miss, in the south Atlantic golf tournament appeared Wednesday to be a matter calling for a new women's record for the Ormond beach course. The luckless first rounrt opponent for the determined Patty was Alice Rutherford of Aiken, R. Cnr., whose qualifying 90 was 17 strokes higher than the redhead's medalist card.

M)--The American Olympic committee, with its president, Avery Brundage of Chicago, back in this country, Wednesday was confronted with two big problems. One, and the more important at (he moment, was the task of raising some ?200,000 to send the American team to Berlin this summer. The other was whether to hold the track and field trials at Randall's Island stadium in New York or send them to Boston or Princeton. Brundage, back with glowing reports of the preparations being made by the Germans, plunged into the task of raising the money by exhorting the Olympic committee to give its fullest co-operation. Dowling of Des Momes Is Top Team in Catholic Test DES MOINES, (/P)- Dowling high of Des Moincs will represent the Des Moines diocese in the slate Catholic high school basketball tournament at Fort Dodge.
