ASKETBALL, r u n into a controversy when the game as played in the small towns and villages is compared to the game of the large high schools. In Iowa, the people of the small towns are having their day, jbecause Dunkerton, a small town [high school team, is reigning state phampion. E awa, the people of the small towns re having their day, because Dun- erton, a small town high school earn, is reigning state champion. I am often asked why a small :.own usually excells in basketball jut not in football. The answer is jbvious, of course. It onlj' takes five Joys for basketball, and 11 for 'ootball. The small town high schools have smaller gymnasiums, n which it is almost impossible to ise good.floor work or sot plays, find as a consequence they tend to practice more o n basket shooting rind sometimes become very adept At it. Size Cuts Shooting. · The larger high schools, with wge floors, work on systems oC pvancing the ball, since the size of le floor docs not permit many at- mpts at the basket. When the small town team ashes with the larger town's team, 3 sometimes happens: Tile plays of the larger school, taught to y on the large court, will neglect cover the opponent who has the II far out on the floor, and the all town boy with possession of ^ ball will firo away and some- ies sink a basket. That sort of it on his home court would not a long shot. I have noticed this particular ng with reference to Mason City ms on defense.

PROBABLE LINEUPS uurns (c) RQ Yan Kenyan Keferee, llnsj, (irlnnrII: 'umpire, Benz." In aa attempt to secure a winning combination, Coach "Judge" Grimsley will probably start a new set of forwards in the Mason City- East High of Sioux City battle scheduled for Friday night on the local court. Disappointed at his team's play in last week's opener, the Judge will give two cagers who have played brilliantly in practice a. chance at the forward wall. Howard Stoecker, G foot 4 inch basketeer, will probably be at left forward position Friday and should aid the Mohawks considerably. Stoecker has improved steadily on both defense and offense and his smooth floorwork, together with his height, should combine to make him a valuable member of the Mohawk quintet. Herbener Outstanding. Midget "Red" Herbener is the outstanding candidate for Uie other forward post, easing out Co-captain Suter and Harrer. Herbener, who has been ill during early season practices, has recovered and is showing some of the flashy form which won him praise last season. While the lineup is not certain, Stoecker and Herbener are the two most likely starters at forward positions. The Grimsleymen scrimmaged the Trojans Wednesday afternoon, but their passing \vas noticeably ragged and the team failed to co-ordiuatc. The Jaysee squad was bolstered by the appearance of "Pops" Thurtle, attending the University oE Iowa, and "Chuck" Walker, Coe fullback of the past season. Both the Mason City athletes are horh'e for the holidays and had a workout with Coach Sutherland's squad. Burns Injured in Practice. Co-capt.

RETAINS TITLE IN STIFF SEASON ON HURLING MOUNDS Pitched Most Complete Tilts of Junior League's Slab Men During Season. By PAUL MICKELSON. Associated Tress Sports AVriter. CHICAGO, Dec. ai. M 1 )--Champions fell by the score as a wave of upsets and reverses swept the world of sport in 1933, but the tireless left arm of Robert Moses Grove still clutched the Amercun league pitching championship. The famous Lefty, sold by the Athletics to the Red Sox for a reported sum of 5125,000 on the winter player mart, retained his prized title against the most brilliant competition offered by American league hurlers in a decade, official averages disclosed today. Although he slipped to seventh place in the earned nm column, he was crowned champion of them all again uy his official record of 21 victories and eight defeats. Pitched Most Games. Grove, who compiled a great record of 195 victories and 79 defeats during his nine years of service with the Athletics, also pitched the most complete games of the league's slab men. He appeared in 45 contests, pitched 275 innings, and had the distinction of stopping the Yankees' scoring streak by blanking them ou Aug. o after they had scored one or more runs iu 308 consecutive games. Too, it was the sixth successive season in which he has won 20 or more games. His average for nine seasons is 21.6 victories against 8.7 defeats a season. Monte Pearson, who came to Cleveland from Toledo of the American association July 5, led the league in..p4tching effectiveness, winning 10, losing 5, and hanging up an earned run average of 2.33.

FULLER?ON, JR., Associated Tress Sporls Writer. NEW YORK, Dec. 21. OP)--The recent decision of the major baseball leagues to adopt a uniform ball, probably like the livelier pellet used last season in the American league, has brought dreams of comebacks to numerous fans who still think there was nothing quite like the days when Hack Wilson was hoisting 'cm over the fences, when Lefty O'Doul was hitting in the .400 class and when Jim Bottomley was "Sunny Jim," one of the National league's leading first basemen. Although nothing definite cun be said yet, there is the possibility th- '; the livelier ball will bring such stars of a few years ugo as Wilson, O'Doul, Babe Herman, Chick Hafey, Bottomley, Frankie Frisch and Kiki Cnyler back near the top of the batting list. Back in 1929 and 1930, when everybody was hitting hard, they were right up among the loiders, but when the ball with the thicker cover came in, their averages dropped fast. Oiiist'd Fluko Drives. The consensus of experts is that the 1933 National league ball would travel as far as the American league sphere when hit squarely but it brought fewer base hits on topped drives through the infield pnd similar "flukes." The averages of Chuck Klein, who kept up to .368 last season, and Bill Terry seem to bear this out. They have been up among the leaders right along. That extra "life" may be just enough to start the comeback parade. Wilson, for example, hit only .356 in 1930. when Terry finished on top with a .401 average but his powerful blows brought 56 home- runs and a total base mark of 432. The next season he slumped to the low mark of .251 ns Hafey's ..'J4S Waldorf Wins First of Season From Estherville FOREST CITY, Dec. 21.--Waldorf colleg-c opened its conference ! basketball season Tuesday night with a victory over the Estherville Juniors by a score of 33 to 31 in a rough game played on the local high school floor.

The last quarter started with the visitors leading 26 to .19. Waldorf started a scoring spurt tha' tied the game at 29 to 20. The game ended with the score tied at 31 all.

O'Doul showed that he still can hit them hurd when he pasted ii ringing base hit with the bases full as a pinch hitter in the second ame of the world series.
