MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 3 1936 THIRTEEN ALBIA WINS STATE JAYSEE COURT HONORS TROJANS LOSE IN FINAL SCRAP FOR IOWA CAGE PRIZE Outreached in Whole Lineup, Mason Gtyans Fail to Match Pirate Height. By At, MITCHELL (Globe-Gazette Sports Editor) There's an old boxing axiom that runs: A good big man can always beat a good little man. In basketball, you might put it this way: You can't keep on. matching- height with speed and get away with it. That's the job which faced Mason City junior college Monday night for the third consecutive time in the state tournament for the two-year schools. Up ag-ainst the tal! Aibia Pirates, giving away four or six inches of reach in every position, the Mason Cityans lost in their bid for the title, 37 to 22. Solved problem Twice. The Trojans had faced and solved the same problem when they played Northwestern of Orange City in the quarterfinals. Saturday night, and again as they opposed Sheldon in the semifinals of Monday afternoon. But speed of foot drains away quickly, and the Trojans couldn't muster enough of it to win Monday night.

Mason City high school picked out a tough one for its basketball chore of the early week, when the Mohawks took on the stars of North Iowa Class B basketball here Monday. Although the Mohawks won 42 to 27, the affair was a battle all the way. The stars, who had never worked together before, and had to leam their offensive plays and defense in a brief chalktalk before the game, were ahead as three quarters of the game were complete, 25 to 23. Wayne Wood's goal tied up the score in the fourth period, and pairs of ficldgoals by Howard Stoecker, Jack Wallace and Jack Shipley, with an added toss by Henry "Hun" Hert, put the Mason Cityans far in front, as the star lineup was juggled to allow all the ballplayers an appearance. North Iowa players appearing here were: Toky Ahrenkeil, Goodell; Larry Blesie, Renwick; Lester Chehock, Plymouth; Laverne Olson, Kensett, and Al Furness, Fertile, all forwards. Centers were Roy Ahlstrom of Goodell, Johnny Wilkinson of Rock Falls and Stanton "Ted" Shcimo, Fertile. Guards were Howard Dennis, Goodell; Dale Peterson, Renwick; Harold Schmitt, Chapin: Alton Muller, Rudd, and Allen Ouverson, Fertile. THE BOXSC'OKE MASON' CITV--42 Slmls F(S FT FTM F I'ts.

Cigar Stores IN THE HOTEL HANFOKD Mason City, Iowa BERWANGER GETS HIGH RATING FOR DECATHLON TEST Versatile lowan to Try Out for Olympic Post in 'Iron Man' Event. By ALAN GOWLD Associated J'rcss Sports Editor NEW YORK, LV) -- John Jacob Berwanger, the University of Chicago's one-man backficld, also may turn out to be a one-man track team. The broad-shouldered boy 'from Dubuque, Iowa, ambitious to make the United States Olympic team as a decathlon performer, already is demonstrating marked all-around ability. Berwanger helped the Maroons take Purdue's measure in a dual meet by winning the 70 yard low hurdles in :07.9, taking the shotput with a toss of 44 feet, 7 inches and finishing third in the 60 yard dash, timed at :06.5. Taken separately these performances are not startling. However, when it comes to spreading activity over a ten-event program, the individual is not expected to act like a combination of Jesse Owens, Percy Beard, Gene Vonzke and Jack Tor- ranee. Osborn Was Specialist. Few great all-around champions have also been specialists. Harold Osborn is the best known exception. In 1924, his greatest year, Osborn set new world and Olympic records in the high jump besides capturing the Olympic decathlon with a world record total at Paris. Osborn has long since abandoned the decathlon but still ca.n give a first-rate account of himself in the high jump. His best mark this winter is 6 feet 6 inches, which is exactly the height he cleared to win the Olympic crown 12 years ago and which still stands as the Olympic record. Speaking- of records, Glenn Cunningham is in the peculiar position of holding an American record that is listed one-tenth slower as an official world record. Set Record Back. We refer to the Kansan's famous mile at Princeton in 1934, when he was recorded in the unprecedented time of 4 minutes, 6.7 seconds. It's on the A. A. U. list as an American record, with no qualifications, but the same performance is listed at 4:06.8 among the--official world records, promulgated by the International Amateur Athletic federation. This is due to an arbitrary I. A. A. P. rule by which tenth-second timing is not recognized for footraces of 1,000 yards or more. At that distance or more the timing must be in fifths. If it isn't thfi I. A. A. F. simply sets the mark back a notch. You Figure H Out. The reasons for this inconsistency are not quite clear to the American delegates, who adhere to the novel idea that a watch considered accurate in clocking a quarter mile or half mile race also is quite likely to be accurate for a mile or two mile contest. If Cunningham had been clocked in 4:06.6 it would have been quite all right, merely because that's equivalent to three-fifths. There has been one other such annoyance in the record list but it's in the process of being eliminated by Jesse Owens, whose world record of 20.3 seconds for 220 yards was accepted by the last A. A. U. convention. This likely will be approved by the sprints, but at Amsterdam in 1928 Roland Locke's mark of 20.5 for the furlong was set back to 20.6 for the world record listing. It is still on the books. Things Are Rosy as Yanks See Youngster Pound Ball ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., (/P)-Things are rosy in the Yankee camp.

Sudden Burst Carries Team Into Top Tilt Trojans Beat Sheldon in Semifinals as Albia Advances. One sudden burst, unleashed in the third quarter, sent Mason City junior college through the semifinals of the state jaysee basketball tournament here Monday afternoon. The Trojans, not performing like the ball team that pushed Northwestern of Orange City out of the running, had to depend on that one bis flash to establish a lead that saved their contest against Sheldon. Running neck and neck through more than half the game, the battling teams were tied at 14 to 14 and again at 16 to 16 midway in the third quarter. Flaring Into action, Merrill "Red" Herbener counted three times from the floor, while Gale Lane, Mickey MacDonald and Gale Snell were adding single baskets, and the Trojans were out in front by 12 points, 28 to 16. Sheldon cut down the edge during a rough and tumble fourth quarter, adding points as Fred Ling, husky midget guard, scored on a follow- in shot; as Dick Griffin hooked in a one-hander. and as Bob Lucas and Bill Schneider slapped running pokes through the ring. The Trojans stalled through most of the period as they earned possession of the ball time and again from the backboards, and confined their scoring to a single goal, just before the end of the game, scored by Herbener. Beaten back twice during the season by Burlington's Blackhawks, Albia's Pirates stunned their neighbor city's cagcrs by earning a 27 to 26 semifinal victory in the first game Monday. Clarence Dixon, midget guard who limped out of the game in the first quarter with an injured foot, came back into the lineup to sink the free throw that won in the last minute of play. Albia had led, 11 to n, at the end of the first quarter, while Burlington, holding the Pirates to a single goal in the second period, led 15 to i3 at the half. A bitter, rough third- quarter fight saw the count knotted at 22 to 22 as the session closed. Jim Keller and John Cardie scored for Burlingon in the last quarter, while Nick Miletich and Wayne Reeves evened the count for Albia. Dixon's free throw settled the issue, although Miletich shot another, which was rubbed out as he stepped over the line, before the end.

At any rate, Indiana completed tis best season since 1928 by conquering Ohio State, 40 to 34, Monday night before 6,400 fans who packed the Hoosier fieldhouse. Ohio Win Stands Alone. Indiana closed the season with 11 victories and 1 defeat, the single setback in conference competition administered by Ohio State. The Hoosiers, led by Vernon Huffman and Kenny Gunning, led most of the way and in the final three minutes gave the spectators a thrill by rallying to choke off a Buckeye rally that had cut their lead to three points. The claim to a share of the season's honors was welcome at Indiana, which hag shared in a Big Ten title on only two previous occasions. The Hoosiers tied with Purdue, Ohio State and Michigan in 1926, and divided honors with Purdue in 1928. There was an outside chance that Indiana might wind up with a clear championship claim.

EAST IOWA PREP FIVES HAVE EYES ON STATE HONOR )avenport Heads List in Big District, Full of Star High School Teams. EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of :i series concerning the boys'" high school basket hall tournament opening with the 45 sectional meets next week. This story deals with the first district with tournaments at Burlington, Cedar Rapids, Clinton, Fairfield, Olin, WapcIIo and W'cllnran. By L. E. SKELLEY Associated I?ress Sports VVrltcr DES MOINES, (.T)--It's a long, strenuous pull through three tournaments to the state high school has. kctball championship, but there are a lot of persons who believe that a, team from the first Iowa district over in the eastern section of the state will perform the stunt. The district, favorably known for many years for the caliber of its teams, fairly abounds with championship contenders this winter. Davenport, Burlington, Keokuk. Iowa City, Muscatinc, Roosevelt of edar Rapids and Sharon, a class B school, appear the top-liners in a high class area. Some Must Lose, It's unfortunate that only two teams, one from class A and the other from class B, will emerge from the sectional and district meets to compete in the finals at DCS Moines, March 26, 27 and 28. There are several first district clubs, destined to fall in the preliminary competition, which would make , capable representatives in the finals. Davenport right now is rated tops for the district. There are some critics who already have made Coach. Paul Moon's team their choice to succeed 'Mason City as the state champion. That's getting a, little far out on the limb, this early, what with some S30 other teams shooting at the same target. But the Blue Devils do rank as one of the state's outstanding teams.
