Just looking back into the record books . . . what a difference a year makes . . . and by what small differences can a good season be turned into one not so good. Mason City high school's Mohawks have played 15 basketball games and lost 10 of them this season . . . the records show as they are brought up to date, after a series of prep contests out oJ town. * * * A year ago Sunday, Mason City high had just returned from Dubuque . . . had also played 15 games . . . and had been beaten only by Davenport and Molinc, ;iu. Howard- Stoeeker led the scoring parade for the Mohawks with 137 points-. . . this season, Capt. Everett, Fletcher paces the squad with 84 ... but that total is far better than the figure he reached by this time last season, .when he was third in the Mohawk scoring with 53 points. Jack Wallace had 55 points a year ago . . . and 37 this season, Wayne Wood had 45 ... it's 35 this year. ·* * * All the Mohawks had taken 711 pops at the basket in 15 games . . . and had rung the bell 15fl times. With their free throws, those buckets added up to 360 points. Opposing outfits had taken only 60. shots, had scored' 107 --goals and totaled 274 points. This season. . . . Mason City has connected 114 times in 640 shots, and opponents have banged in 141 goals out of 572 attempts. Not much difference . . . but the Mohawks have scored only 301 points while other teams have totaled 354. S * S They say the good teams win the' close ones . . . Mason City beat -Fertile last season, 17 lo 14, Newton, '17 lo 12; Forest City, 30 to 28; Dubuque 18 to 17 on Wallace's last-second shot, halfway up the court. This year, Mason City might have won . . . but didn't . . . in a 16 to 15 game at Clear Lake; a 14 to 12 game wtih Marshalltown; a 19 to 16 contest at Waterloo East; a 24 to- 20 game at Austin, Minn. . . . a n d a 25 to 20 contest at Muscatine. You can do a little simple arithmetic and see at almost a glance that 20 points extra in the right places would have won Mason City five more games this year! And that would have made the season record read: 10 victories, 5 losses '. . . PEEKING AROUND AT LOCAL SPORTS F.OLK A postal card arrived Wednesday . . . and even though it was addressed to Max · Coffey, who used to sit in this chair at the Globe-Gazette office a few years ago, I read it. It was signed by Fred Klindt . . . now trie only way I knovf Fred Klindt is through reading old numbers of the Mason City high school annuals . . . but he was a great athlete in his day, they say . . . * S * He wrote: "The reason I happened to think of Mason City today is this. Last night I attended the American Association hockey game here . . . 5,000 people were there . . . at intermission T looked around, and lo and behold, there sat Earl Farmer, with whom I went to high school. He was on the track team . . . a f i n e runner. "Then and there we held the first annual meeting of the Mason City A l u m n i of Kansas Cily club . . . " Klinrit's address is 424 Allman building, Kansas City, Mo. Did you notice t h a t Justin "Sam" Barry, former Iowa basketball coach, said in his late Saturday Evcpost basketball article that Chuck McConnell was one of his best defense players? "He was always catlike in his movements, smooth, relaxed, but bearing down in there all the time. (Conlinoed on Next Page) DR. J.G.

The Blue Ribbons handed the Bakers a basketball game, grabbing a G to 3 lead and holding it well into the second period, before the .Diamond Bread squad found the rings to get out in front. Corn Country Butter went in front early in its contest with Hamilton's School of Commerce, and pushed through to a 29 to 16 victory to share first place for the opening week. "BIFF" JONES IS HER COACH Army Man Succeeds Dana X. Bible as Grid Mentor for Cornhuskers. LINCOLN, Ncbr., OT--The University ot Nebraska athletic board pulled a surprise out of its hat Thursday to announce selection of Major Lawrence McCeney "Biff" Jones as the new Cornhusker football coach succeeding Dana X. Bible, who resigned lo become head grid mentor at Texas university. Nebraska's board of regents approved the choice Wednesday night, they disclosed, close on the heels of a secret trip of athletic board members Tuesday to Kansas City, where Jones was interviewed. The salary was not disclosed. Jones flew to Washington Thursday morning lo leave the U. S. army position which forced him out as coach of the Oklahoma university Sooncrx, Big Six conference foes of Nebraska'. Board members said -Jones would f i l l Bible's shoes ns athletic director as well as head coach. The contract is for five years. A member of the a r m y foolball coaching s t a f f . 1 0 years, the colorful "Biffer" was captain and star of AVest Point football teams before graduation. When military duties transferred him to Louisiana State he took over the coaching job there for three seasons. A brush with the late Huey Long, who, Jones said, would not be permitted to help coach the team between halves, cut short his stay there and he went back to military service. LOUIS GOES TO FLOOR IN BOUT Dusky Joe Slips Down for Second, Dusts Off His Sparring Partners. POMPTON LAKES, N. J., (UP) --Joe Louis a trip to the canvas on the seat of his boxing trunks Tuesday as he wound up heavy training for his 10-round bout with Bob Pastor in Madison Square Garden Friday night. Whether Joe was knocked down by Sparring Partner Eddie Malcolm's right fist or whether he slipped when lie missed a punch at Malcolm and lost his balance was debated hotly by observers at the ring. It was his first time on the floor since the Schmeling match last June. Malcolm said he didn't know what happened because "I didn't hit him. I don't know what made him go down." Anyway, Pastor followers made much of the incident. Joe got revenge in the second round, however, beating Malcolm all over the ring. Previously he had kayoed "Irish" Tommy Glynn in one round. LOUDEST ECHO OF KNOCKDOWN FROIM BOB NEW YORK, (/P)_The training camp knockdown of Joe Louis echoed 'round the fistic world Thursday and the loudest echo came from the camp of Bob Pastor, who tangles with the Brown Bomber in Madison Square garden Friday nigiit. Without referring- to the story that Louis dropped to the canvas after Sparring Mate Eddie Malcolm threw a right hand punch at him in yesterday's training session, the bull-necked ex-collegian issued .a statement ^declaring: 1--That Louis "couldn't' dent pound of butter", if he doesn't have extra bandages on his hands. 2--That Louis "would not even be a preliminary fighter if he was the bare knuckle slate athletic corn- boxing in dnys," and 3--That the mission should "compel Louis lo live.up to the rules and regulations relative to blindages." Then Pastor took a deep breath and predicted: "I will prove conclusively I will stop Joe Louis within 10 rounds Friday night if he is not'allowed to wear extra bandages:" The Louis training camp episode was regarded variously as "one oE those things" and as a legitimate knockdown. The eyebrow-raisers pointed out that if Joe kissed the canvas from a punch it would have the same lure for the fight faithful as a spilled bottle of honey on a drove of flics. Ringside observers, all fight writers, were mixed in their opinions, while the garden expanded its gate prediction lo a possible $125,000 sell-out for the 10 round bout. FAST PROeRESS SEEN AS BOARD SEEKS MENTORS Dorais' Salary Demand Too Great, Rumors Out of . Chicago U Say. IOWA CITY, (!P)--Alhlclic Di- rcclor E. G. Schroeder conferred with Matty Bell, Southern Methodist university coach, at Dallas, Tex., Thursday, as observers expected rapid developments in the University of Iowa football coaching situalion. With the return of Director Schroedor and Prof. C. M. Updegraff, athletic board chairman, from their extensive "contact tours," the athletic board will receive its first definite information regarding the candidates available for the job within the next few days. Professor Uudegraff left Washington, D. C., Wednesday night after visiting III Tubbs of Miami university, Fla. Both Schroeder and Updegraff conferred with Gus Dorais of Detroit and. Jim Kelley of De Paul university, Chicago, in Chicago, early .this week. Hcilly Sees Slcu-urt. Meanwhile at DCS Moines, Slate Representative Eugene Reilly of Dubuque said he would talk with Waller L. Stewart, alumni member of the athletic board, before deciding on the possible introduction of a bill in the state legislature to change the athletic board setup. Reilly said Wednesday he was considering the introduction of a bill providing for an increase in a l u m n i representation from two to seven members on the board. The board suggested by Reilly would have eight university faculty members and seven alumni. "Before going any further with the idea, I will talk wilh the board's alumni member in Moines," Reilly said, "and 1 will decide what I want lo do after the conference with him. "On Itight Track." "Since Wednesday I've had calls and telegrams from alumni in all parts of the state telling me they think I'm on- the right track," University officials here said Ihey did not believe Reilly's proposal would fulfill western conference requirements of "complete faculty control of athletics," but few would comment further. The so called "preferred list" of prospective Hawkcye coaches was still, reported to include all the men interviewed by Schroeder and Updegraff. Possibility of interesting Dorais in the position was reported lo have dimmed, however, following the Chicago interview. Must Hike Salary. Reports said Dorais told the Hawkcye representatives he was receiving $10,000 a year in his present position, and that he would not consider a change unless that salary was bettered. The lowans, it was said, saw no possibility of meeting the salary demand. Buck Shaw of Santa Clara and Frank Wiclthorst o£ California, both mentioned as possibilities, have not be Iowa board. Speed! That's What Young Bob Feller Likes in Cars! But Iowa Boy Hurter Says He's Good Driver; Set for Major Season. By L. E. VAN METER, (/P)--Speed!--That's what Bob Feller likes. Cleveland's young pitching sensation has plenty of speed lo put the hop on his fast ball, and this winter he is getting his supreme thrill by sending his new automobile roaring over the highways. Seventy or eighty miles an hour. It doesn't matter to the Iowa farm youth who became the American league strikeout record-holder at 17 as long as there is smooth sailing ahead. Bob bought his car shortly aft-]*" er the close o£ the major league baseball season. He uses it principally to dash back and forth between his farm home and the Van Meter high school. One usually can tell when Bob is on his way to town. There is a sharp t u r n in the divt road about a quarter of a mile outside Van Meter's incorporated limits. When a big sedan comes tearing around Ihe corner the folks say, "Here comes Bob." But the young fellow who struck out 17 P h i l a d e l p h i a batters lo lie Ihe major league slrikcout m a r k for a single game asserts he doesn't tako any chances.

NEW YORK, (/P) -- Basketball as played in 1802, the year of its* conception at Springfield college has at least one thing on baskcL- 1337--it produced more ball of laughs. Using the I'i original rules posted on a bulletin board al Springfield college in 18S2 by the game's founder, Dr. James Naismith, the first game was reproduced at Madison Square garden Wednesday night. Ten minutes ot phiy with two nine-man teams produced only one field goal--a long shot that settled into the peach basket and refused to bounce out. Eighteen men started the scramble for the ball, tossed into the center of the floor by George Bernerl. Two men were b.inishcd for personal fouls during the game, which ended with the only goal. And then the referee had to call for n ladder to get the ball out of the basket. The players dived into the crowd for the possession of Ihe ball whenever it went out of bounds, for the rules gave it lo the man touching it first. Fortunately nobody was injured in the game, which proved lo be a mixture of rugby, hockey, soccer and basketball as it is known to day. The players wove shin and knee guards beneath their long trousers. MSiDE TO PLAY KENSETT Holy Family B a s k c I b a 1 ! Quintet Out to Gain Revenge for Loss.

BOSTON, (UP)--Track experts reely predict t h a t a Boston indoor -ecord will be established Saturday night when the nation's greatest milers clash in the K. of C. mile at the Prout Memorial games. The star-studded field consists of Glenn Cunningham ot Kansas vorld's indoor and outdoor champion; Gene Venzke, former Penn star and current national indooi iing; Archie San Romani, the new Kansas sensation; Don Lash,- fn- diana's ace two-miler who'll be debut as Fenskc, Ihe naking his indoor miler; and Charlie Wisconsin whippet. First Meeting: of Aces. All of thorn have done better .han l:lt for the mile, and it will Je Hie first time these five have competed against each other indoors, Cunningham holds the indoor nile record at -1:08.4, established Yol ' lc K ' o£ C ' m ' ' la.M. There isn't the remotest pos- ibility, however, t h a t his mark OTll be approached Saturday To begin with, the Boston track is 12 laps to the mile, one more than the track on which the Kansas flyer established his world record. Additionally, it has abrupt banks and is slower than the New York track by four to five seconds. Boston's indoor mile record is .icld by Vcnzke, who did thedis- tance in 4:14.4 in the 193G B. A A games. Fans Sec Thriller. With compelition at such a razor-edge, however, it is v i r t u a l l y certain that Boston track fans will bo treated Saturday to t h e fastest indoor mile ever seen here, one lhat probably will be accor plished in 4:14 or under. For the past two years, (he lot K. of C. mile has been dominate by Cunningham, who w i l l 'try to bag the Curlcy trophy for keeps on this trip. But Cunningham may find a stumbling block in San Romani who has twice outdistanced his fclIow-ICansan in the past four months. The Emporia Teachers' college sensation turned (he Iricfc t h e first time between halves of the Princeton-Williams football game when he showed his heels to both C u n n i n g h a m and England's Jack Lovelock. He repealed the performance in the Sugar Bowl mile, beating C u n n i n g h a m to the tape lor a new southern marl; of 4:14. Lash also is considered a major threat. MACK SETS OUT TO BUILD FARM BASEBALL PLAN Athletics Have lo Get Into Line in Order to Stay m League Race. PHILADEPHIA, (/!)--The Philadelphia Athletics will "string along" with the baseball chain farm system because Connie Mad;, veteran pilot, sees no other way of competing w i t h teams like the Yankees and Cardinals. "The clay is nol f a r off when everyone of the sixteen m a j o r league clubs will be supplied ivilh farms ranging from t .|.-, ss AA leagues down to D," Mack sairt in announcing his decision lo establish chain farms.

So tar his only working agreement is with Williamsporl of the New York-Pennsylvania league and he said it would lake "one year, two or maybe more" lo put his new plnn into operation.
