, EIGHTEEN OUT OF THE _ , __ 9/Al MITCHELL Elmer Layden "HORSEMAN" This is a story of "I knew him when . . . " It's told by a Mason Cityan who knew Elmer Layden when both were students at Notre Dame, and both were running on the Irish track, team. * * **. Charles "Chuck" Casey is the story-teller who knew the recently-hired conch of Notre Dame's football team when Layden was a dash man and the Mason Cityan was running the hurdles. Here's what he tells . . . * * e "I knew Elmer Laydeu best through my association with him as a member of the Notre Dame track team. He was a consistent performer in the dashes when the football suits were stowed into mothballs and the thinclads had begun work. * * * 7 ' "I always admired Layilen's ' start from the marks In the dashes. Bis fast getaway and his speed over the first few yards were hip; factors in his performance of :09.8 seconds in the hundred; and that gave him many first places In university track meets of 10Z3-24 and 1925. * * * "Layden was one of two six letter men attending Notre Dame in 1925 . . . those who recall the 'Four Horsemen 1 backfleld of the Ramblers remember. Layden as the one of,the quartet who could start like a flash when the ball was snapped. * * * "It was, I imagine, because of this fast start Hint Knute Kockne said- Layden could always bo depended on for a yard or two on each of his attempts. When a hole was opened in the opposing line, even for a, fraction of a second, Lnydcn was through it before it was closed. * * * . "Layden's long runs with the ball which were almost as frequent aS his shorter ones, were always characterized by speed and flash. A fast sprinting run for 40, 50, 60 or 70 yards was Layden's special ability an I believe was a factor in Grantland Rice's naming the backs the 'Four' Horsemen.'" * * * "During workouts on the old 40 yard indoor track at Notre Dame- I Imvo heard Knute Itockno say that there wasn't . a faster man In the conn', y than Elmer Layden . . . for 40 yards. This speed and fiist- atartlng ability, I think, will be mirrored in Layden's future Notre Dame elevens, as It was in the fast and light ICockne teams of the past," DePaul Defeats Husker Basket Team, 25 to 11 CHICAGO, Dec. 23. (JP--T h e University of Nebraska's baskctbal team went down to defeat, 25 to 11 before the DePaul University quin tet last night.

MOHAWKS W BETTER FORM OF EAST PREP TEAM DEFEATS LOCALS Mason Cityans Show Mor Cage Ability T.han in Opening Contest. Mason City high school's cagers lost a thriller to East high of Sioiu City 23 to 17 Friday night on th local court--but even in defeat th Mohawks looked better than the} have at any time in the early sea son period. Although the Red anc Blsck basketeers discarded the rag gedness so noticeable in last week' opener, even the improved play o "Judge" Grimsley's proteges wa not sufficient to overcome that o a sharp shooting Sioux City quintet Coach Leslie Davis 1 fast passing outfit was the smoother workini team, but the visitors had to com through with some fancy shooting before they staved off a plucky Mo hawk outfit. Eight points scored In the third quarter proved to be thi winning margin for Sioux City, a Mason City was unable to sink a counter that period. East leads at Hair. Soiux City came out for the sec ond half with a 17 to 12 lead and when the gun ended the third quarter the count was .25 to 12 Some sensational play by Co-capt Bob Burns brought the count to 17 for Mason City while the Sioux Cityans were held scoreless in the final period, but Father Time cu short the Mohawk rally. Rosenberger, an eagle-eyed forward for Coach Davis' five, led tho visitors' attack, dropping a trio oi 'iold goals and five charity shots through the hoop for a total of 11 points. Co-captain Burns, from his fuard position, broke through for 'our field goals and a free throw to ead Mason City's scoring column vhile the lanky Evers was runnemp vith six points--all scored in the econd quarter. An accurate eye at he foul line would have won for the lohawks--only 3 out of 15 attempts y the locals being good. Olson Scores First. Olson started the scoring parade, peniug the game by sinking a set- p to give Sioux City tlie lead which ; held throughout the game. Shal- anfs came in from hla guard posi- on to sink another setup for the ;sitors and the scoring portion of IE tilt appeared to be strictly a ioux City affair. "Red" Herbener inally gave the Mohawk followers omethiug to shout about as he roke in fast for a sensational short ne to score the first fcasket for Maon City. A short one by Burns and a pair of long ones by Rosenberger rought the score to 8-4 for Sioux Jlty at the quarteritiark. 'The flashy Burns came in fast to tpen the second quarter with a set- i for the Mohawks. Sioux City's ace in the deck--Rosenberger-- 'ound his basket eye, however, anc the East high star dropped in a long one from the court as well as a trio of charity shots to put East wel nto the lead. Evers, Mason City's 6 foot 6 pivot man, almost duplicated the sensational East forward's attempt aa he dropped in a swisher from the foul line, later followed up Barr"s long try and pushed it in for a counter and capped off his scoring spree with a pair of free throws. Huerth and Olson splintered the Mohawk defense for tjWo more field goals to give East high a 17 to 12 lead at the halfway mark. Mohawks Fal 1 to Score. Mason City found itself up agalnsl a veritable brick wall in the thin quarter as East took good advantage of its strong defensive tactics to hold the fighting Mohawks score less. "_he visitors were not conten with holding Mason City scoreless however, but shattered the Mohawl defense for a quarter of counters-- Rocenberger, Mlchaelson, Huerth and Olson counting for East high. Strange though it seems--the sit uation in the fina^ quarter was al most an exact prototype of the pre ceding quarter--with East being held scoreless by the Mohawks Bobby Burns led a one man rally as he came in fast to sink a pair o field goals and then stepped up to sink a charity shot as the game ended. It may be encouraging to Mohawk followers that Coach "Judge 1 Grimsley's men succeeded in giving one of the most brilliant quintets in Iowa tough battle. Against a su perior East team, Mason Citj flashed forth a vastly improved o£ fense. While numerous shots wer missed, the floorwork and co-ordina tion of the team which played sc raggedly last week was a revelation to all Mohawk cage fans. East high was to play at Spirit Lake Saturday night.

"Chick" Sutherland's Trojans goi off to a start that was a success but a narrow-margined success, as they defeated Emmetsburg junior college 'Friday night on the basketball floor, 24 to 22. The battle was all set to go "extra innings," but for the bad luck of Long, forward for the Emmetsburg five. Yelland, center for the Trojans, dumped in the last Mason City basket with 2 minutes and 30 seconds to go, and Mueller and Long of the Emmetsburg quintet came right back with a pair of long distance blasts to tie the count when less than 50 seconds were left to play. But Long traveled on his last attempt, and Referee Hass canceled the basket as the game ended. Trojans Slow to Start. The Trojans uncorked an ace passing attack and a fine defense in their first trip out for the season, but they couldn't seem to put the ball in the ring at the start. The game was five minutes old before Johnny Carroll, following a free throw that fizzled, tipped one in to hang up the first points. It was ulne minutes before Emmetsburg counted in the first quarter, Jordan '.aklng a free throw to get one. In the meantime, Carroll, Kopecky, and Gibbs had added five points to the two. Johnson of Emmetsburg stood at the center circle and split the net with a beautiful shot late in the period. It was the only basket for the visitors in the first half. Neighbors Scores. Neighbors, Kopecky and Struyk rolled in baskets during the second period to set the Trojan mark at ~ 1 'i, with Smith's free throw, while Jng and Jordan added free tries o the Emmetsburg total for a half icore of 16 to 5. Emmetsburg took good advan- age of the breather period at the mlf to come back and score four paskets and a charity shot in the bird period, Long and Jordan dong the counting. Kopecky and Yel- and added baskets to the Trojan otal while Neighbors took two ree tries that were good. Yclland's push shot under the ast basket was the only Trojan core of the final quarter, while ohnson manufactured six points or Emmetsburg, two tries coming under the basket and two free attempts adding the.rest. Hippodrome Finish. Then came the hippodrome finish with Mueller and Long trying guc- :essfully from near the center of tho floor, the last try going for naught when the traveling penalty was called. Kopecky, Trojan forward, was the hotshot of the offense, stowing away four baskets during the evening, while Johnson, Emmetsburg guard, matches his total with three baskets and two free throws. Especially effective were Johnny Carroll, Struyk and Smith at the guard positions, both in cutting off following, attempts by the visitors and in breaking set plays through the Emmetsburg defense. Ketchen and Johnson were equally hard working for Emmetsburg, Johnson adding the constant threat of speed and ability to shoot. The lineups: 1.4.SOA- OJTV--34 EJIJ[ErSDCRQ_22 IX!

COURT TIPS By "JUDUE" A DAY'S BASKETBALL DRILL EGULAR schedules _. n«0K of practice at Mali J sfjial son cit y fc'S* 1 school "W Kfcaw may var y a l i t t l e from day to day, but not a. g r e a t deal. Practice p e r i o d s ·vary in length from an hour and a half to two hours. Practice begins between 3:15 and 3:30 and lasts until 5 or 5:30. Maaon City follows a more or less regular routine of practice every day. The first 30 to 35 minutes are spent in shooting and individual iractice, such as under basket pivot shots and pivoting. Mass Drill Follows. Then a period for massed passing drill, combined with short shots at the basket, after that a workout in team formations, drilling on fast breaks, set plays, tipoff plays, and so on. A part of the period is used in a set practice of three men against three. In other words, three on offense try to score after working the ball through three on defense. This develops the fundamental footwork for defensive play, also the pivots and blocks for defensive play. "How Much Scrimmage." Some time is spent in scrimmage, with teams from the squad, or with the junior college Trojans. The question of "how much scrimmage?" depends on the time of the season and the individual players. After the season Is one-third gone, I think the scrimmages should be cut down to about one each week. I do not think that there is nearly as much danger of over-practice In basketball as there is in football. Sometimes the boys in football get tired of practice, and try to miss it If they can. I have never found that true in basketball. STANFORD ENDS DRILL ON GRID Cardinals Go Through Last Drills for Game in Rose Bowl. STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Cal. Dec. 23. UP)--Ready to leave for Pasadena, where they will meet the Lions of Columbia University In the New Year's day Rose Bowl game, Stanford University's football Card- nals romped through a last workout on their home field today. Tonight the 38 man squad, with joacheg and trainers, heads for the south, where on Christmas day a week of intensive drill will begin. Still in excellent physical condition, with all injuries healed by a 10 day vacation from the gridiron, the Cards yesterday left quarterly examinations behind · them and turned for a brisk two hour session of practice. Coach C. E. (Tiny) Thornhill sent his men through signal drill and blocking routine while Capt. Bill Corbua, all-America guard, booted goals from placement. Thornhill groomed Lyle Smith of Bakersfield to replace Ineligible Al Norgard at right end. Connie Mack to Go on in Diamond for Seasons to Follow PHILADELPHIA; DOC. 23. OP)-Connie Mack, grand old man of baseball, celebrated his seventy-first birthday today with his mind still on the players' dugout--not the fireside. Full of plans for next year, the man who turned a white elephant into a championship baseball machine--the Philadelphia Athletics has no thought of retiring although his allotted span of life was up a year ago. Characteristic of his frame of mind, Connie planned to take MB first all-plane flight today, a sight seeing spin over the city, accom panied by his wife and daughter. "I'll never retire," he said. "I'll continue managing as long as I feel I can help my players." Does CorcJwooci Come in Class of "Hush Money?" TIGERTON. Wis.--Members of the Split Rock baseball team recently organized a charivari party, but they have to sell two cords of wood before they can "cash in" on their efforts. Pleading lack of cash, the young bridegroom, a farmer, offered the serenaders the wood if they would go away. The offer was chivalrously accepted. LITTLE OPTIMISTIC EL PASO, Tex., Dec. 23. (/P--If the Columbia University team playa the class of football it did during November, Coach Lou Little believes It has a chance to wallop Stanford New Year's clay in the Rose Bowl game at Pasadena. Optimistic over his team's prospects, Coach Little ran hla players through a workout here yesterday afternoon. Last night the team entrained for Tucson, Ariz., where it will stay a week before proceeding to the coast. In the practice session here, the Columbia second team scrimmaged against a pick up team of Texaa college of Mines players coached on Stanford plays. The first stringers looked on for a while and then were sent in for on offensive drill at dummy scrimmage. Light scrimmage was given the regulars later. Due to the long transcontinental train trip, tlie Columbia team appeared tired and lacking in snap. The long stop at Tucson was expected to bring the team back to peak form.

PASADENA, Dec. 23. JP1--Start- ing the second 18 holes in the Pasadena open championship today, MacDonald Smith held a two stroke lead on his nearest competitors by virtue of his par shattering 67 of last Thursday. The Carnoustle Scotsman rested yesterday while the second bale of the big field tried and failed to equal his feat. Fay Coleman of Culver City, Cal., and Willard Hutchinson of Santa Barbara came closest with 69's, the same score Paul Runyan of White Plains, N. Y., made the day previously. Harry Cooper of Chicago and Olin Dutra, former national P. G. A. champion, were tied with SO's. The 7l's were such stars as Jimmy Thompson, tho I^ong Beach siege gun who apparently had found his putting touch; Leo Diegel, winner of this year's California open; Horton Smith, one of golf's finest putters; Denny Shute, British open king and Johnny Dawson, tlie Chicago amateur. Any one of this array might be able to catch Smith, as might Bobby Cruickshank, Willie Hunter, Kalph Guldahl or a few others who had 72's when the 38 hole finals starts tomorrow for the ?1,OQO first prize money.

By HERBERT W. BARJtCEli. NEW YORK, Dec. 23. (/T)--In a laseball off season marked by an unprecedented turnover in players, metropolitan New York's three major league representatives have remained conspicuously aloof from the ivory markets, unable or unwilling to buy or sell. For Bill Terry's New York Giants there is an adequate excuse. Custom, as well HS common sense, says there's small need for extensive alterations in a world championship club, espe- sially when it's as young an outfit as that which swept through the National league last summer and then beat the Washington Senators in the world series. Neither the New York Yankees nor the Brooklyn Dodgers, however, have any such reason for standing pat. Both Joe McCarthy of the Yankees and Max Carey of the Dodgers are eager to bolster the weak spots which developed during the 1933 campaign but neither has been able to swing a single player deal since the close of the season GIANTS BOLSTER HESEUVES. The Giants have bolstered their infield reserves by the trade which sent Glenn Spencer, right handed pitcher, to Cincinnati for the veteran George Grantham. In his 12 years with the Chicago Cubs, Pitts- tmrgh Pirates and the Reds, Grantham has played first, second and third base. Pittsburgh even used Mm in the outfield in a few games in 1929. From the minors the Giants have recalled or purchased a dozen or so players including Fresco Thompson, former big league second baseman. Hank Leiber, hard hitting outfielder, also will be back for another trial. iTANKS WILL REBUILD, McCarthy's chief concern when the Yankees settle into training will be the rebuilding of his infield and it looks now as i£ "Marse Joe" will have to find his replacements from among the farm, hands he recalled from Newark of the international league. Although Yankee officials have denied that unconditional releases were handed to Herb Pennock and Joe Scwell during the Chicago meetings, there seems no doubt that both will go. Lyn Lary and Doc Farrell, infielders, also are reported on the block. "Hungry Lou" Gehng, of course will be back at his first base post but otherwise the Yankee inncr works are unsettled. If Don Heffner, purchased from Baltimore, can make the grade at second base, Tony Lozzeri may be Shifted to third. Either Frank CrosettI or Bob Rolfe, recalled from Newark, probably will get the call at shortstop. Rolfe has been pronounced ready for the big leagues, a clever fielder and a hard, timely hitter. DODGERS ON BLOCK. Except for Van Mungo and El Lopez, virtually every other member of the Brooklyn. Dodger cast hag been declared trading material but there have been few offers and no takers. Carey haa snared a few young pitchers of whom Leslie Munng of St. Paul looks like the best bet, and a few infielders and outfielders from the minors but barring future deals, the Dodgers probably will line up much as they did last season. Mungo, Ray Benge, Elmer Beck and Owen Carroll probably will be the "Big Four" or the pitching staff unless Munns or Charley Perkins, clever southpaw, can break through to win a starting berth.
