Bob Blakesley and Jack Coyl are expected to lead the field in Ihe stock car races while T i p - P i p or, Bob Monahan and Dutch Sex 3if will head Ihe entries in Ih lidget races. By FRANK GRANT There'll be a hot time (figuratively speaking) at Roosevelt Field Sunday night when the Mason. .City Fire and Police departments join forces to do battle with the Waterloo police department in a benefit baseball game for Sioux City's polio victims. Sunday's "false a l a r m" is scheduled for 8 p. m. The Mason City Firepoles (Fire and Police) downed the VVaterlpo gendarmes in the first annual event last year, 12-4. The "teams" were scheduled to play at Waterloo last Tuesday, but the game Was rained out. The third game in the creak-ancl-freak polio benefit series is set at Waterloo next Wednesday night. Cookmans to Play Slated for action on the mound for Mason City's "hitless wonders" is modern-day Lefty Jack Cookman. Cookman, the only mem ber of the Mason City Legionnaires' mound staff to finish the season undefeated (Jack finished the campaign with a 1-0 record) will share pitching chores with hi: brother, Joe. Both are member! of the police department. Jack probably will be one of the heaviest hitters on the Firepole squad. He finished with a .10' average in Iowa State League com petition. He drove in two runs ir six times at bat 1 . Jack had one nil and scored once while with the Legionnaires. Firepole Manager Pete Wolske a "heavy" hitler himself, is no definitely set on his starting line up. "I've a fine bunch of athletes lo 'choose from," Wolske saic Thursday, "and since they're about even in athletic ability, I'l have no trouble in selecting an all 'round' starting nine." 3-lnning Limit Wolske will have to depend upon a reserve hurling slaff, since no pitcher can go more than three innings. Thai's a game rule, not by the pitcher's request. Fred Grclk and Wes Grcenan complete tha Firepole's pitching slaff. Grelk is a member of the fire department, while Grcenan is a member of Mason City's men in blue. Greenan is studying how to throw a pitch--baseball fashion. He might cut loose with some underhanded lobs as he was one of the standout hurlcrs in the YMCA, Softball league this summer. The remaining learn members are: Marv Vosburgh, Jack Bender, Marv Gerdes, Walt Berry, Bernie Briscoe, Bill Verllclst, Elmer Frilz and Mike Dosen, all members of Ihe Mason City fire, department, and Harold Leach, Dave Folletle, Rudy Alman, Duane Jewell, Glen Wilson, Ray Keeper, George Maskarina and Pat Purcell, all members of the 52 Osdge Preps Report; 8-Game Schedule Set OSAGE--The 1952 edition of Ihe Osagc High School football team-- i2 strong--have reported for pre season drills under Coach LeKoj Alitz arid his assistants, Bob Dutcher and Joe Doyle.
