Last test for state cage honors will await district winners at Cedar Falls in tournament carded for March 15, 16. 17 TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 1934 OUT OF THE PRESSBOl, V Al MITCHELL^ REVAMPED MOHAWKS TAKE WARPATH Big Noise Willis Fatten, Iowa's premier handball player, and Clayton "Chick" Sutherland, Mason City's premier high school grid mentor, have been inviting each other to go 'for automobile rides in their respective motor vehicles .for some months. The climax to the series of '· · invitations came Monday when i . Willis asked "Chick" to take out the new Sutherland motorcar and demonstrate it. The high school mentor agreed, and both climbed in. A large crowd had assembled. » * * A turn of the starter failed to .bring life to the motor, but was followed by a queer hissing sound from under the hood. The hissing grew in -volume. Then the payoff came . . . the noise was comparable to a one- .pound cannon. A brief inspection showed the remains of the firecracker that Willis had wired to a sparkplug. The crowd dispersed. Gossip Spring whispers say that Mason City is going to see a fast semipro baseball club in action this coming summer at the north Iowa fairgrounds. "Hobo" Duncan, who did most of his Mason City cavorting near the second sack last summer, ·will be captain and playing manager. * « * The "Hobo" will do his directing from behind the ' bat, it's also said, switching to the catcher's post as the ideal spot from which to direct a team. # # * M o r e early-season predictions have it that Des Moines, Ceflar Rapids, and Sioux City may be seen in action here, the Western league clut« playing in early season games before their regular schedule opens. t * « Prospects Another new crop of north Jowans who were prep school athletes of yesterday and have completed freshman seasons within the last year at their ^ colleges will begin an assault ~* on varsity jobs shortly. tzr**------ - ·· t- * * For instance, Kenneth Medin, who might well trace some relationship to the Medin appearing here in the district basketball tournament cf last week, will try for the outfield in Iowa State's varsity baseball club.

Tom (Torn to Market Page) CHANGES TO PUT NEW LINEUP OUT FOR FIRST GAME Lambert Talks to Cagers at Monday Session of Practice. Something new in basketball styles, the advice of a coach of champions, and a feeling of confidence will all be Mason City's as the Red and Black basketball team from the local high school makes ready for the final conquest in Iowa basketball, the state tournament finals at Cedar Falls. The "something new" is a combination of Mohawks which has never taken the floor as a working unit before. At the forward posts- Bob Harrer and Costa "Gus" Rume- liote; at center, the young giant, Howard Stoecker; and at guards-Capt. Merrill Herbener, flashy redheaded midget, teamed with Ray Barr, defensive tattler, replacing Bobby Burns. It will be the job of covering Marcellus McMichael, Roughrider ace who works at a combination center and forward position, that will be given Ray Barr.

Cigar Stores EN THE HOTEL HANFOBD Mason City, Iowa Mohawks will have little advantage in size over McMichael, and will find in his opponent the tougn- est of opposition. . The Roosevelt ace is not especially tricky, not adept at clearing himself of a hampering opponent and getting around a guard--but can start a basket attempt if he is within open range for a split second. And many of them are ringers. Thus Barr will have a full- evening, ham- Ipering the Rooseveltian eager s throwing ability by sticking to him for the full 32 minutes of the game. Herbener Should Click. Herbener, at guard, should turn in a. fine performance as he has at forward. Naturally a good defensive man 'the change should not prove bothersome, and the red-head will probably be able to pull out the Koosevelt front line by long attempts from his back-court post. The advice of Ward "Piggy" Lambert, coach of Purdue's Big Ten champion, given Monday afternoon- after he had watched the Mohawks work, might be a factor in Mason City's style. Favorable Changes. Guards spread farther apart on offense, whipping the ball across the floor like a baseball, and not crowding too close to the goal, so as to give more room for offensive plays to swing into action would be favorable changes for the Mohawks, Lambert believes. The Mohawks will practice at 2 o'clock Wednssday afternoon on the court at Cedar Falls, and will go up against Roosevelt at 8:10 o'clock Thursday nigat. Track, Swim Meets in Single Day at Iowa U IOWA CITY, March 13.--All of the week's athletic activity at the University of Iowa wil be crowded into a period of 12 hours, with the Western conference championship swimming meet and the annual state quadrangular track and field affair in the Hawkeye field house on the Saturday schedule. The field of some 87 swimmers will enter the preliminaries at 10:30 a. m. In all of the individual swimming events except the 50 yard swim the trials will be on a time basis, with the eight fastest men qualifying for the finals. In trial heats, the 50 yard men will win their way into the final on the elimination basis.

A heat calm of two weeks prevailed before the fish died, Dr. Surber said. The fish, in the deep cool water of the lake, were forced to come to the surface when lack of wind failed to stir up sufficient oxygen to penetrate to the depths last summer. Change Brings Death. The change from the cool wate: to the warm was too great an brought death, Dr. Surber stated .This condition also was prevalen in a number of other lakes in th state, he said. "The state is blessed with a sups abundance of fish," Dr. Surber said "and some people ridicule the sug gestion that fish in the state are in danger of extermination." He pointed out several reasons why fish life is decreasing, including: A. steady lowering of lake levels through insufficient moisture, as for example the 23 inch average rainfall in 1933 with an average evaporation of 40 inches from the lakes. Trout streams tributary to Lake Superior are no longer fit for trout, while springs no longer exist 300 feet above the level of Lake Superior because of forest fires. Fires Destroy Bogs. Fires have destroyed many of the sponke-like bogs which held snow and ice well into the summer and percolated cold water into streams and lakes the summer long. Rainfall no longer brings the same results as in earlier days, the highly tilled soil and cut over forest lands being unable to withold the water. Dr. Surber said he was opposed to winter fishing, particularly of crappies. He also pointed out the danger of carp in Jakes, saying that the female carp produces 3,000,000 eggs as compared to 400,000 of the pike and pickerel. The young carp, he said, soon devour all other young fish in the lake. Purdue Mentor Visits in Mason City Two Days. By DAVE KAUFMAN A varied type of offense, under- mphasizing the customary set nlays, was the chief winning factor or the Western conference basket jail championship Purdue squad, ac ording to a statement made Monday by no less an authority than the Soilermakers' diminutive coach Ward "Piggy" Lambert, who visited on Monday and Tuesday in Mason City. The Purdue cage mentor was a guest at the home of his brother n-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. R. B [rons, 718 Pennsylvania avenue northeast. "We use no signals nor set plays," stated the Purdue coach, "but let the players use their own initiative and judgment. There is a disadvantage," admitted Lambert, "in that our own players do not always know what their teammates will do next, but since the opposing five's defense is likewise puzzled, it evens matters." Next Year's Chances Poor. 'Purdue's chances- of repe'ating' its Big Ten conquest next year are not rated very highly by its coach. "We lose three regulars in Fehring, Eddy and Lowery and our chances to repeat are slim," Lambert said. He did say, however, that the next Boilermaker squad would probably ranh close to the top of the Big Ten standings. "We didn't expect to win this season," the Purdue coach declared, "because of a lack of height predominant in the first string." Point, ing to a Mohawk squad picture in a newspaper beside him, he con Oxford and Cambridge university crews, pictured above will race each other again on the Thames river, Saturday, March 17 in their Lmual classic 8 which was fir.st held in 1829.

Undiluted Confidence Is Felt in Tenryman's Fold 'I of Last Season* Will Carry Team Up in 1934. By ALAN GOULD(Associated Press Sports Editor.) MIAMI BEACH, Fla., March 13. ·pj The combination of rare pitch- ng, extraordinary fighting spirit ici opportunism, which carried the Vew York Giants on a surprising light to the baseball heights last eason, has blended with tropical jalminess this spring to produce an incut brand of confidence in the camp of the world champions. As viewed now under Florida's olistering sun or mellow moonlight, t wasn't luck and the "breaks" but skill that swept the team to the top. Instead of being due to a fortuitous chain of events or a manifestation of the art of making a little go a long way, it was the result of foresight, development and aggressive "percentage" baseball. In short, Mr. Will Terry's cheerful young men and old, along with their partisans, now look upon the Giants as a team destined to prove there was not the slightest "fluke" about all that (Turn to Market Tape) FAVORITES FOR TITLE STAY ON A.

U. basketball supremacy entered a 16- liour grind today with all favorites still in the running for the title now held by the Tulsa, Okla., Oilers. All but two of the 30 teams see action in 14 second-round tilts. The Olympic club of San Francisco, and the White Eagles of Kansas City, reached the third round yesterday. Like most of the favorites, the defending champions moved into the second round by a lop-sided score, taking the measure of Sioux Falls, S. Dak., college, 52 to 12. Today the Oilers are pitted against another college quintet, the Springfieldre.-; Teachers.

Dutch Fehring, our center, is the tallest player on the first string and is 6 feet in height." Stresses Speed and Shooting. Following Coach Lambert's statement that his proteges were outreached by lankier opponents in almost every tilt, the writer asked, "How did your team manage to spill .he best opposition the Big Ten had offer?" With scarcely a mo- ent of hesitation, Lambert replied Speed and shooting accuracy were le requisites which brought us the tie." Continuing the explanation of tb.L oilermakers' type of play, he star, d that Purdue relied upon a fasi reak usually.

Vary Style of Play. Asked as to Purdue's style of cage tactics, Lambert replied, "We iiave no standard style of play but vary it with the different types of players we get each year." Coach Lambert illustrated this viewpoint by using the lanky "Stretch" Murphy as an example. When the big Murphy was on the squad, the Boilermakers played a more deliberate game but with smaller players, as in the past season, a speedier offense is used. "The best players I ever coached?

By ROBERT CAVAGNARO Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, March 13. (/Pi- Lester R. Stoefen, lanky Los Angeles tennis star, is out for big game. No less than a place on the Davis cup team and the national outdoor singles championship are the goals at which he aims. "It may sound like shooting at the moon," Stoefen said today at the seventh regiment armory where he is competing in the U. S. indoor championships, "but it's nothing like that. I'm very keen for tennis this year, keener than I've ever been. My game is improving from day to day. The 23-year-old player, nationally ranked at No. 3 and holder, with George Lott, of the national doubles title, is one of America's rapidly rising stars. He possesses a tremendous service, a powerful forehand, and has an uncanny knack of slicing shots to the side. Dr. Lawrence .Kurzrok, a sturdy opponent, was to be Stoefen's next rival in the current championships. The visiting Frenchmen were arrayed against formidable opposition in the third round matches.
