MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 2 1936 NINE CATCHERS TO MAKE OR BREAK BIG TEAMS HALF DOZEN SE TO MAKE BATTLE OF FLAG CHASES Vets and Rookies, Backstop Must Hit Ball, Handle Hurlers at Best. By HUGH S. FITLLERTON Jr. Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, (1--In more way than one the catchers seem to be th key men in several major league sit uations this yar. Th backstop is always an import ant figure in running a ball club, a anyone can explain who saw Mickej Cocbrane lead his Tigers throug the world series last fall or Gabby Hartnett lift the Cubs in their fina U drive to the National league pen ' I cant. ; But the coming campaign finds -; the chances of at least a half dozen ; clubs depending upon whether thei ' catchers, veterans or rookies, com through with able stick work and thi proper performance of duties behim ; the plate. , .In the National league the Cubs Giants and Phillies appear to be verj well fixed. Hartnett may not attain ; last year's hitting heights but he', . a consistent clouter. and in reserve Chicago has Ken 6'Dea and the slugging Walter Stephenson. Giants Not Worrying. Gus Mancuso and Harry Danning aren't likely to cause Manager Bit Terry of the Giants any worry and ' ; Jimmy Wilson of the Phillies handles I') the job himself with able assistance "('; expected from Earl Grace, who came from Pittsburgh, or Bill At- I'iwood, a .359 hitter at Johnstown |: last season. - On the other hand there's the rather doubtful situation at St. Louis !'.;' where illness has forced Bill Le_'Jancey' out of the Cardinal lineup :'and Dizzy Dean, in one of his pans'-' pdical pop-offs has declared he won't j f j w p r k with Virgil Davis. Brusie O'Grodowski, rated the best catcher in the American association with .- Columbus last year, may be the solution to this problem. He's been improving steadily in the Cardina ; chain both at bat and in fielding and 'handling the hurlers, Ernie Heads Into Jam. · Ernie Lombardi's failure to come to terms with the Reds has put most of the catching burden upon Campbell during Cincinnati's ·aining jaunt to Puerto Rico and lere are indications Ernie may have trouble getting; his job back if he changes his mind about signing, as is expected, when the Reds reach the mainland. One of the brightest catching prospects in the senior league is seen at Brooklyn where big Gordon Phelps has stepped into the place vacated by Al Lopez and begun hitting so hard that Casey Stengel has tentatively nominated him as the cleanup batter. A broken hand kept the 225 pound "babe" idle most of last season but he hit .364 in 47 games and he's made the right field fence down at Clearwater look just a step away from the home plate. Bees Count on Lopez. The Bees are counting heavily upon Lopez to fill a weak spot behind the plate but Arthur Doll, picked up at Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, last year when he clouted a 400 foot homerun against Boston in an exhibition game, and Ray Mueller may give the senor from Tampa some competition. Al Todd, from the Phillies, looms up as an answer to Pittsburgh's catching problem but if he fizzles the Bucs may be in serious- straits. Tommy Padden, the only prospective substitute unless Aubrey Epps recovers from last winter's illness in time to take a hand, is light and hasn't been particularly effective in the past, Y Tournament to Go On in Four More Sessions . Th Y. M. C. A. volleyball tournament will continue for two more Eights, and will he followed bv another four-round tournament, it was announced Monday by Doug Swale, chairman of the volleyball committee. The new meet will be played by games instead of by points, and each competitor will meet two other teams a night. Points will be counted for attendance. Al Patton's team leads .the present tournament with 394 points. Fists Swing as Detroit Beats Canadien Puckers NEW YORK, UP--The Detroit Red Wings, leaders in the American division of the national hockey league, downed the Montreal Can- adiang Sunday night 3 to 1 in a game that wound up in a'series of meiees and saw fists flying all over the place. Harry Blake, Canadian player, was led off the ice and given the first match penalty of the season | here.

The Austin team kept Lowell Peterson hackled at the same time it was unleashing its own sharpshooters. The Johawk ace forward put on a hrilling one-man show in the last lalf, tearing away from the cling- ng Shamrock defense to score 16 lOints, but the spree was not inough to overcome the huge Aus,in margin. The visitors were still _iut in front by 25 to 11 as the third ieriod ended, and drove through the vlason City team for 12 more points in the last session.

Clarion. Semifinal Berth With Victory. State tournament fans saw the nearest thing to the perfect basketball game Saturday night, as Mason City junior college defeated Northwestern of Orange City and advanced to the semifinals of the Iowa jaysee meet. The Trojans won 44 to 37, as fans sat on the edges of their seats, fists clenched tight, through more than half the game, then howled their relief when the Mason Cityang grabbed a. final lead that went unchallenged. Outsized at every turn, the mM- get Trojans displayed their best basketball to win from the husky Northwestern crew. The Mason City terriers were snapping at the heels of the Orange City team all through the first half, just a tantalizing pair of points behind during most of the way. Hold Slim Lead. The first quarter ended 14 to 12 for Northwestern, and the visitors held the same edge at the half, 20 to 18. Northwestern had gained that lead at the outset, as Merlin Kraai tipped in a loose-bounding ball to open the scoring. During the period, the count was tied at 4 to 4, 6 to 6, 8 to 8, and 10 to 10, but a deliberate poke through the net by Russ Kraai and a follow-in by Merlin Kraai put the Hawks in front at the gun. Gale Lane had split the net from the left forecourt, and tipped in a wide-open chance on a fast break, while Merrill "Red" Herbener had run the ball twice from a short angle during the quarter. Mickey MacDonald, who played the best defensive game of his jaysee career Saturday night, and Johnny Carroll had also scored. Carroll opened the counting with a neat plunker from the free throw area. Both in Hard Luck. Both teams hit a hard luck streak in the second quarter, each outfit scoring only three times. Herbener tied the score on a running -push shot and Lane poked in two speedy goals on the fly, while Marvin Vantier Ploog, Russ Kraai, and Bob Gee- bink counted for Northwestern. The Trojans were in the lead for the second time in the third period, as Snell opened the scoring with a pretty pivot and dribble for a setup, ind Herbener counted a free throw. Lane faked his guard out of bounds for an open shot, then took a long pass from MacDonald to slap in another pair of points. A free toss and a long- pass to Russell Kraai saw Northwestern score to tie the game at 27 to 27. But Herbener's one- hand whirlev and Snell's open shot under the goal made it 31 to 29 Cor the Trojans at the quarter. Clinch Game in Fourth. Five quick points as the fourth neriod opened virtually clinched the ssue for the home team as Herbener and Lane scored. Lane protected he margin with a fast break play on a long pass from MacDonald, and Herbener took another from the stellar guard to come out in the open and beat the Northwestern defense to th basket. Carroll scored at close range as the game ended. Merlin Kraai and Geebink had counted the only Northwestern field oals in the last session. Burlington's Blackhawks out- Jassed Emmetsburg in the opening jame Saturday night, winning 46 o 32. The Blackhawks were away o a 14 to 8 lead as the first period nded, and held their edge all the A r ay in, Schultz: Tops Attack. The neat one-handed shooting of jOren Schultz, Burlington guard, ·as a high spot. The "all-over" Slackhawk sharpshooter found gap- ng holes in the Emmetsburg defense and speeded his way through for a half dozen baskets, picking up five free throws out of six on the way. The Blackhawks were on top by 23 to 15 at the half, and 34 to 24 as the third quarter ended. The officials were up against a knotty problem when Jim Keller's free throw stuck on the supporting iron of the basket early in the fourth quarter and refused to drop. The try went for a miss. Larry Firkins. Emmetsburg center, performed notably with a half dozen goals and a free throw, keeping his team in the running for 3 , ,, . nearly three quarters. Emmctsburg -- I had the Burlington lead whittled to 27 to 24 at one point, but slipped behind as the Blackhawks counted four goals.

(Lock Photo, Kayenay Engraving;) BADGERS TO ACT ON LOOP ORDERS Wisconsin to Put Athletics Under Control of Staff, or Leave Circuit. MADISON, Wis., (.T)--Harold W. Wilkie, chairman of the University of Wisconsin board of regents, said the proposed suspension of the university from the Western conference, slated for July 1 unless control of athletics is restored to the faculty, would be acted upon at or before the next meeting of the regents March 10. Declaring he was satisfied Wisconsin had not violated any Big 10 conference rules, Wilkie defended the action of the regents in dismissing Athletic Director Walter B. Meanwell and Football Coach Clarence W. Spears to give the troubled department of athletics a fresh start. He said the regents meanwhile would await appointment of a- new athletic council and then pass upon its recommendations. "Steps will be taken at the next meeting." Wilkie said, "to answer the conference demand that "full and compete faculty control of athletics at the university is restored."

ALGONA--After being postponed three times the Kossuth county basketball tournament got under way Saturday afternoon and evening in four preliminary games. Seneca was sUtc ^ ee basketball meet, win- Lamoni Five's Advantage Wiped Out by Pirate Rally Sheldon Continues in Role of Tournament Darkhorse by Taking Osceola Into Camp 37 to 23. A courageous fight by Graceland of Lamoni, striving to hold a surprise lead over the favored Albia Pirates, developed into a howling fight as the quarterfinal round of the state j u n i o r college basketball was under way here Saturday. The big Albia team came from behind to win in the last two minutes of play, 38 to 36, and enter a semifinal berth in the state meet. Graceland, which had dropped Chariton out of the tournament Friday, stunned the Pirates with a versatile attack led by Byron Harder, husky center. Hardcr's trio of goals, added to a pair by Ronald Salyards, and single buckets by Glen Nelson and Allen Colbert, put Graceland ahead 15 to 4 as the first period ended. Salyards also added a free throw, before he was taken from the game with a badly wrenched ankle. Bob Baxter, who did all of Albia's scoring in the first period, found the ring once more in the second period, while Nick Miletich poked in a flat shot from his guard post and Harry Reeves and Maurice Schultz also got single goals. Graceland Ahead at Half. Harder was scoring twice more for Graceland in the meantime, and Nelson and Bob Brackenbury were adding a field goal each. Graceland led by 23 to 13 at the half. The third period found the Pirates doing everything but hitting the hoop, as they scored only 5 points, on a goal by Schultz and a basket and free throw by Milc- tich. Colbert. Nelson, Harder and Salyards were scoring at the same time to keep Graceland in front by 32 to 18. Albia unleashed a frenzied attack in the last quarter, starting as Baxter dribbled under the goal for a close shot, and piling up the points on Wayne Reeves under basket attempt, a short flip from the free throw circle by Miletich, and a two-handed follow-in shot by Wayne Reeves. Harry Reeves found the ring twice in a row after that, once on a fast out across the free throw circle, with a one-hand shot, and again with a two-hand overhead poke. Pirates Break Through. Miletich and Wayne Reeves were adding up free throws in the meantime to set the Pirate total at 33 points. Graceland stayed ahead briefly as Nelson drove hard under the goal to hook in a basket for Graceland, but Miletich angled one from the short sidecourt, Baxter rolled in a free throw, and Wayne Reeves was all alone on a fast break for a total of 38 counters. Brackenbury made a lone free throw for Graceland on Harry Reeves' foul as the game ended. Sheldon's sliding zone defense tept Osceola's junior college cagcrs tied up and the northwest Iowa team went to the semifinals of the unable to get here on account of blocked roads and the rest of the games will start Tuesday afternoon. Lonerock defeated Wesley 36 to 26. The winners pulled steadily away from Wesley in the first game and led at the half, 18 to 14. Luverne's game with Bancroft seemed no contest at all, the half ending 16 to 1. Not until the third quarter did Bancroft take action. The game ended 24 to 13. Titonka took Whittemore 39 to 28, the winners having control of the game most of the time. The last game was the thriller of the evening, when Lcdyard beat Lakota 17. to 16. Ledyard won in the closing minutes of an even game, both teams playing a hard-driving contest with little choice between the two. As scheduled now Seneca will play Lonerock and Fenton will meet Luverne Tuesday afternoon. Kossuth County Hoopers Plan to Resume Contest LEDYARD--The Kossuth county girls' basketball tournament will be resumed this week after being postponed from last Tuesday. Ledyard had defeated Lakota, 26 to 20, and Whittemore had beaten Luverne, 45 to 20, before the postponement. Vmider Hoe M. Krnil f . n, Krnli c r.erbinU e , Tenaslie c .

TP !)0!» 4(15 !IO!I 38(1 0011 :4|[ .101) 3S7 2.TM 342 1)0(1 2(il By WILLIAM \VKEKES Associated Tress Sports Writer. CHICAGO, (.11--Indiana will reach for a share ot the Western conference basketball championship this week. The Hoosicrs will close their most successful season since 192S. against Ohio State at Bloomington. Indiana, which has suffered numerous disappointments in Big Ten basketball, not only wants its share of the title, but will be scckiing revenge. Ohio State periled Hoosicr hopes Feb. 1 by handing Indiana its only defeat of the conference season. Only a timely upset triumph over Purdue by Northwestern hauled Indiana back into a contending position. P-.irdue at Michigan. Purdue's Boilermakers, who will claim the other half of the championship unless something goes wrong, will play their final game Saturday night with Michigan at Ann Arbor. The Boilermakers had quite a time getting around the Wolverines at LaFayctte early in the campaign. Indiana, with Ken Gunning scoring 19 points, played at its best Saturday night to conquer Northwestern, 41 to 34, while Purdue was rolling over Iowa, 54 to 38. Boh Kesslcr scored 22 points as the Boilermakers returned to form after losing to Northwestern a week ago and turning in an unimpressive performance against Minnesota Monday. Illini Squeeze Through. Illinois remained in the third place tussle by squeezing put a 30 to 29 decision over Ohio State at Columbus. Wisconsin closed its home season with a 10 to 32 decision over Chicago. The defeat was the Maroons' tenth straight, in spite of a 17 point contribution from Bill Haarlow, and left them with little chance of breaking into the victory column this season. Illinois could clinch third place by defeating Michigan, the other candidate for the spot, at Ann Arbor. Iowa plays at Chicago, and Wisconsin tackles Northwestern ac Evanston in other games.
