MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 4 1936 NINE WINTER CAN'T LAST--BASEBALL IN NEWS -By Al Mitchell- of the Pressbox IN ANOTHER column . . . the Globe-Gazette's choices for an Iowa junior college basketball team are "published . . . without comment. The selections were made only from the rosters of teams which appeai'ed here in the state tournament. * * * YOU'LL VERY likely notice, it you check the boxscores, that the fellows who produced the points are the ones who got the honors . . . and there's good basis for that, in a tournament which saw losing teams running up their scores into the high 20's and 30's. * # * THERE'S HARDLY a comparison to be drawn between the junior college and high school basketball tournaments . . . after seeing what the older fellows can do, I'm definitely looking their way for entertainment. They play firewagon basketball . . . rough and tough, sometimes. But it's fun to watch a scoring game . . . and if I may speak for Mason City, I'll say that everyone's glad the state tournament came here. Odds and Ends . .. CATCHING UP with a thousand and one darn things that have gone by during the state basketball tour- iiament . . . North Iowa is going to be pretty well represented in organized baseball this year. Especially Kossuth county . . . from whence eame Darrel Riddle of Burt, signed by the St. Louis Browns for San Antonio, Tex, Don Blanchard of Lonerock, former State Teachers' star, and now the property of Milwaukee . . . Gene Ford of West Bend, for- ·· merly with the University of Iowa, now trying out as a Cub . .. . and then there's Walt Menke of Bar* croft, who is said to be big league material . . . latest talent to be picked up in North Iowa is Eugene Hansen of Manly, who has gone to New Orleans, where he'll get a chance as a Cleveland pitcher . . . Cy Slapnicka of Cedar Rapids picked him up a year ago . . . he's had a year of seasoning in the Northern league . . . with Fargo, and some more experience at Devils Lake, N. Dak. * * * Jack Dempsey . . . restaurant owner in New York . . . will visit Iowa again this summer, but not as a boxer or ring official. He'll stop t Iowa City, and will go from there t Wellman, where he'll buy some of ,__he prize 'Angus beef that Cleo '' Yoder has raised ; . . Yoder exhibited the grand champion at the Chicago International Livestock exposition . . . Dempsey's restaurant purchased the champion for steaks last year . . . at S3 a pound. . . . The Bob Dana who plays for Britt's Hottentots in the consolation game of the North Iowa Independent basketball tournament is none other than "Bearcat" Dana the boxer . . . scouts at Garner report that Goodell . . . the champion . . . and Kanawha's basketball teams drove their automobiles up the railroad tracks to get into Garner for the county tournament last ·week-end . . . S c a r v i 11 e's team walked 11 miles to get there. * * * A flying start towards the shattering of his own University of Iowa track and field scoring record has been made by Francis Cretzmeyer of Emmetsburg . . . He registered 3S points in the first two dual meets of the 1935 season. At this time a year ago he had made only 27 points, Cretzmeyer, a model of consistency, duplicated his performance of the Grinnell meet in the Big Ten dual affair with Chicago at Iowa City. He took the high and low hurdles and broad jump and tied with Ray Latham, a team mate, in the high jump. * * * His duel with Jay Berwanger. the great all-around Chicago athlete, resulted in a 19 to 10 triumph for the lowan. Cretzmeyer beat Berwanger in the broad jump and low hurdles, the only events in which they faced each other. Berwanger won the shot put and shared first in the pole vault. The 1935 scoring record of the lowan was 144 i points in 14 indoor and outdoor meets. Cretzmeyer probably will compete in 14 meets again this season.

DEAN SCRAP HAS LOTS OF ANGLES OVER FIVE YEARS Pitchers Aiming at 20-Game Mark All Over League as Drills Get Long. B.v ALAN GOULD Associated Vrcss Sports Kditor NEW YORK. l. ; P)--The Cardinal strategy in dealing with the great Dean reminds us of that pre-war collegiate tune, "Ragging the Scale." All the notes, sour and sweet, have been tried over a five year period. Perhaps the current use of the "silent treatment" will succeed where other methods failed to quench Dizzy's unquenchable spirit. Back in 1931. as a loud rookie from the Texas league, Dean popped off so much that he damaged his tonsils, exhausted the patience of Gabby Street and received a return ticket to Houston. He bounced right back the next year and promptly established himself as the new National league strikeout king, which he still is. "Sucker for Suggestion." Dizzy's fiicnds insist he's the "most misunderstood" player in baseball. His critics add that it's difficult to understand him because he tells everyone a different story and is, as they say on Broadway, a "sucker for a suggestion." Branch Rickey, the Cardinal business boss, suggested Diz mak.c it worth while as a holdout so the pitcher promptly demanded $-10,000. But he will "compromise" for 525,000, which he's worth. And he will promise, as part of the agreement, to cast no aspersions, publicly or otherwise, upon the earnestness or fortitude of his team mates this season. Fort Myers scouts report there are no less than four Johnsons, including Walter, Jr.. on the roster of Connie Mack's "mystery men." Can't Last Forever. Meanwhile reports of phenomenal rookie exploits guarantee that winter can't last forever and that curve ball pitching has yet to rear its ugly head in the grapefruit circuit. Erri- byro Nap Lajoies and Ty Cobbs are cavorting again. Yankee onlookers at St. Petersburg wax enthusiastic over Joe Dimaggio (pronounced mah-jio) the recruit outfielder who has color, a real batting punch and prospects of recapturing some of the favor that vanished from the Bronx with Babe Ruth's departure. A Puerto Rican prospect, discovered when the A's sounded assembly, turned out to be a hat salesman instead of a shortstop. There will be at least twice as many 20 game pitchers in the American league this year as there were at the close of the 1935 campaign, if the flingers make good on their spring predictions. Wes Ferrell, Bob Grove, Mel Harder and Tommy Bridges, the holdovers, all figure they will do as well or better. 25 lor Senators. Buck Newsom, newly signed, promises Owner Griffith he \vill make it 25 for dear old Washington. Johnny (Foots) Marcum off--.- 20 winners for the Red Sox on '-2ha!J of his constitutents in Er .'nonce. Kentucky. Lefty Gomez of the Yankees, Schoolboy Rowe and Eldcn Auker of the Tigers all are aiming at "20 or better." All the hubbub over the Tigers and Red Sox as contenders-in-chief for this year's American league pennant may react to Cleveland's advantage. The Indians, a hot spring choice last year, met with an extraordinary train of misfortune. Now all seems to be harmony in the camp at New Orleans. The complete recovery of such erstwhile casualties as Campbell, Averill, Pytlak, and Knickerbocker, plus a pitching staff strengthened by the addition of Johnny Allen, places the Tribe in a great spot to upset a bucket of tlope.

Xnr(h Fcdcrnl "Everything- for Sport" Phono 545 SECOND DISTRICT FtL OF EXPERT PREP CAGE FIVES Anything Can Happen, and It Probably Will, Before Champs Are Named. By L. E. SKELLEV Associated I'ross Spnris \Vri(or DES MOINES, i.T)--Anything can happen, and probably will, in the state hig'h school basketball qualification tests in the second district over in northeast Iowa. One could give 100 to 1 odds with utmost safety that no one can name the two teams that will represent the district in the state finals at Des Molncs late this month. There is. however, one degree of certainty. There'll be two good teams from the second district in the finals. There are numerous class A and class B teams in the district with championship possibilities. Best of Lot. The best of the lot, using the regular season records as a criterion, are Dubuque, Waterloo East, Vinton, New Hampton, West Union, Oelwein, McGregor, Waverly, Orange township and Lime Springs. Dubuque, an erratic performer, should win the Manchester sectional to advance to the district meet a week later. The river city club, however, has been so inconsistent that a defeat by cither Manchester or Independence would occasion no great surprise. An indication of Dubuque's possibilities was obtained when it knocked off Davenport's talented team at Dubuque midway in the season. Looking for Action. Ed Moore, Waterloo sports editor, says they are looking for plenty of action and several surprises in the sectional at Waterloo West. It's a wideopcn race among the class A schools with the advantage, if any. given to East Waterloo, coached by Leonard Raffcns- pergcr. Several other tcama have the power to whip aside the east threat. Waterloo West, playing on its own floor, will be no pushover, and Cedar Falls, Teachers High, Dunkerton and Waverly will be tough.. Coach Joe Duea's Orange township team appears the test of the class B teams. Vinton or Belle Plaine. It's Vinton or Belle Plaine at the Vinton sectional. Vinton copped the Tri-Valley conference championship while Belle Plaine is the undefeated champion of the Iowa-Cedar league. Vinton holds a narrow margin verdict over Belle Plaine in a regularly scheduled game. "-".i [Jsiioii and Oelwein apparently dominate the West Union meet. West Union won the Fayette county title with a 1-} to 12 victory over Maynard in the finals. New Hampton is the hot choice at its own sectional. It won the Northeastern Iowa conference with 12 victories in 13 starts. Victims included some of the outstanding teams in that corner of the state. McGregor looks like the class A winner in its sectional at home. It piled up a 10 game winning streak during the regular season.
