' FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 1934 OUT OF gjfe THE Jfef' PRESSBOL 9/Al MITCHELL^ District Tournament Those fellows are back again . . basketball players. There's a, district tournament.being played at Mason City high school, in case some folks haven't heard . . . if they haven't heard, it wasn't the fault of Belmond's supporters. * * * As class A got under way Thursday night, with Belmond finally falling before Algona, 24 to 23, the entire southwest bleacher at the local court was crammed with Belmond folks who came to cheer for their boys. And they cheered! ALGONA BATTLES TO 24-23 VICTORY Â£ Â» $ * Â« * Â» * * * * * * * * * * ' Â» * Â« = * ' ! ' * * * ' * * * * * * * * * * * ' * * Â· Trojans Falter in Last Period, Drop FromMarshalltown State Meet IMI Â· 11 I r TM-- ^------^ Their cheer leaders, by the by, were Veona Townsan, Patricia McNulty, and Frank Buchanan. It's to be presumed that Capt. Gerald McNulty is Patricia's husky brother. One gets the impression at once that the Algona and Belmond teams are altogether husky outfits . . probably from gazing up at the brick thatch of Wilbur Luick, Bronco center. Charles Cretzmeyer of Algona is no youngster, either, when it comes to size. And he's about the fastest plvotman seen in action around here. , * ' * * Sellstrom, Algona guard, is one of the smoothest seen in action here. He showed a fine style at ringing them from the floor Thursday night. Both teams used their big centers to advantage in scoring, the Al- gonans starting their post plays deep in court on some occasions, farther out on others. * * * Algona and Mason City's Mohawks could have a fine time getting together if the Mason Cityans would wear their white outfits, but it would be tough on scorekeepers. Except for the chest numerals and long socks, the Algona uniforms practically duplicate the outfits worn at times by the Mohawks. * * * It must be a habit with the teams In the northwest part of Iowa, this wearing of long stockings on the court, Algona, Ledyard and Esther- vllle junior college have been so equipped in appearances here this season. * * * Lcdyard's style of play, in class B, puts one in mind of Cresco high school's sectional champion team of about 1927, which included Bink, a giant center, Champlm, later a "pony" back-field man at the University of Minnesota, Byrnes and Precious. * * o Â· Probably the biggest social error Â· of the evening was credited to Fletcher, member of the Little Mohawks of- 1 Mason City high school. The Ledyard team preferred to sit in the southeast bleachers, near the scoring table, rather than use the player's bench; Fletcher, the Mohawk courtesy squad member assigned to show its members around, sat with them. The action became interesting . . . so he whooped out "Come on Grafton!" S * * A new idea in numbers for uniforms was that seen as Capt. Alfred Lloyd of ledyard took the floor, sporting a big "OO" on his shirt. * * fc For a moment the scorers were " afraid that the "feud" between Chris Johnston of Clear Lake and Car. Lash of Mason City had broken ou1 again. It may be remembered thai Carl was the shooter and Chris was the shootee when a blank cartridge was discharged at Chris' white duck pantlegs in the class B invitational tournament here. Chris gained a point Thursday night by emptying all the ammunition for the timer's gun on the table in one fell swoop. 8 s * * It was a nice sprint that Carl did toward the east end of the court when the gun failed to work at the half in the second game of the evening. * * * Probably the toughest situation of the tournament is that of Harry Rappath, Forrest Jones and Kermit Dalluge, all of Grafton. They didn't come to the games. Their mates played without them because the three boys are home with mumps. Richmond Signs Badger Coach for Three Years RICHMOND, Va., March 9. (^Pi- President F. W.

SCHOOLS BATTLE N CONTESTS AT DISTRICT MEETS loosevelt, Dunkerton Keep Winning Pace as Teams Click in Tourneys. By THE ASSOCIATED BRESS Anyone who believes that Dunker- on and Roosevelt high entries in the Iowa high school- basketball ournament are "one-man" teams, ost that idea Thursday night if he aw either clear another obstacle in their drive to the finals. Marcellus McMichael of the Des Moinea team and Wally Gaddis, lacemaker of the champion Dunker- on five, were in action, but they hared the glory with other members of their teams. McMichael got 13 points as the loughriders defeated Webster City 39 to 16 and Gaddis got 11 while Dunkerton downed Garwin, 41 to 17.

CORWITH A finish fight that was won by a single point--although that margin' was. established a half dozen times by the contenders as the contest neared its close--was the evening's punch-carry- ,ng windup as Algona and Belmond battled here Thursday night in the class A bracket of the district basketball tournament. Algona emerged victor by 24 to*' 23 as Bob Post eased in a short basket with seconds before the final fun. Less than a half minute, Belmond looked to be the tanner, when ,uick, giant red-Iiead, tipped in a jaskec to set the Bronco margin at 23 to 22. Medin Sets Lead. Russ Medin had set the score at 22 to 21 for Algona by swishing one out of the left side of the court. It had been 21 to 20 for Belmond, with 1% minutes to play, as Madson scored a free toss on Shackteford's foul. Belmond had enjoyed a 17 to 16 ead as the final quarter opened, but the story changed to show an 18 to 17 count for Algona as Sellstrom rushed one in from the foulline. ihackteford, following an attempt, tipped in another to make it 20 to L7, but Leavy angled one in from :he right side of the court to set thing at 20 to 19. Goelz tied the count at 20 to 20 with a free toss on Sellstrom's foul. Two Tired Teams. The story of the 17 to 16 lead acquired by Belmond in the third quarter is the story of two tired teams. The count was tied at the end of the first half, after 16 minutes of furious speedy play, at 15 :o 15. The third quarter produced a basket by Goelz, who dribbled the .ength of the floor to shoot after i% minutes of the period had gone by, and a free toss by Post, when Goelz fouled him. The rest of the period was a contest between weary, rror-making teams that failed to click until their second wind came oack in the final session. Belmond ran up a 12 to 6 lead in the first quarter as Luick used his long reach to advantage to score 3 times from the floor and Leavy added 2 more goals. Madson caged the extra one, and Sellstrom and Post were'the Algona scorers. Grafton Losses Tilt. A crippled Grafton team went out of the running in the first contest of Thursday evening at Ledyard's cagers got away to an early lead and built it up with some beautiful examples of shot-making to win by 25 to 16. With a trio of regulars out because of mumps, Â· Grafton put up a game battle, but the scoring attempts weren't there. Ledyard scored the first counter of the tournament as Warner plunked in a free toss on Walk's foul, and Thompson added a pair of baskets. Lloyd making the sixth point on his free toss after Hackbart fouled. Shooting Exhibition. The Ledyard team went to work with a fine exhibition of hook ana tipin shooting in the second quarter as Thompson, Lloyd and Warnei (Torn to Page 10, Column 2) GIRLS PLAY IN PAIR OF MEETS Hampton, Sheffield Centers for Sectional Contests in Basketball.

The iat- ;er, in his column devoted principal- y to football, protested the emphasis given bowling and said he could develop "in three months any man with average capabilities into a 190- average bowler." Sixty, a bowling and golf writer, called Kuechle's cards and a citywide campaign and recruits resulted.

The reward for the exhibitionists will be their free bowling during the training period and the chance that they may develop into first-rung players. That Kuechle's boast may have been well founded is indicated by the records of the apprentices thus far. With 144 games played, Andresen has boosted his average form 153.3 to 171; Matschkc, from 152.3 to 165, and Hopkins from 138.6 to 151. The progress of Andresen has been most outstanding.

By FOSTER HAILET Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, March 9. (.T--The United States Lawn Tennis association took a step today that critics of its Davis cup policies have been urging for years. It named R. Norris (Dick) Williams, 2nd., of Philadelphia, former Davis cup player and captain of the team from 1921 through 1925, as leader of America's international tennis squad for 1934. The announcement was made by President Walter Merrill Hall along with that of the cup selection committee, a sub-division of the larger cup organization announced .Tuesday. It has the responsibility of gathering and training the team which will attempt to win back the famous trophy from England. Holcombe Ward, chairman of the larger cup committee, also heads the selection group with Hall, Williams, Dwight F. Davis, donor of the trophy, John Hope Doeg, Jones W. Mersereau, Walter L. Pate and Bernon S. Prentice, the team captain in 1932 and 1933, as the other members. A criticism of America's Davis cup teams of recent years has been that the control of the squad was placed in the hands of men who had never played in international matches themselves and who thus failed to handle the youngsters under them properly. sons and Lloyd Holm of Luther at forwards; Vic Pahl of St. Ambrose at center, and Ray Patterson of [owa Wesleyan and Howard Urie of St. Ambrose at guards.
