MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 5 1936 THIRTEEN PABST BLUE RIBBON TOPS INDIE CAGE TEST By Al Mitchell Out of the Pressbox THE UNIVERSITY of Iowa is forgetting about basketball for this season . . . after its team earned a tie for sixth in the conference standing, the result of five victories, seven defeats . . . but this is a fine time to look ahead by a year or more. First, though, let's see what happened at Iowa this year: Four of six Big Ten home games were won . . . in the only road victory Iowa set a new Hawkeye scoring record for a Big Ten · game by rolling up 47 points on. Chicago. In the league race, Iowa broke even with Ohio State, Illinois and Wisconsin, won twice from Chicago, and lost twice to Purdue and Michigan. A one-period loss to Purdue and a defeat by Michigan in an overtime period TMere i--eluded. The 19 games, 9 of which were victories, were watched by about 86,000 persons . . . the 12 conference affairs attracted 60,500; attendance at 10 home games was 43.500. Sid Rosenthal, forward and second semester captain, scored 162 points, the greatest total for an lowan since 1923. He made 101 points in conference games, equal- ling the combined total of the next three lowans. Rosenthal sank 50 field goals (34 in conference), 62 of 95 free throws, or 65 per cent (33 of 55 in conference games or 60 per cent.) Top games: 27 to 26 upset of Illinois, won by Fred Schwartz' long goal in last 50 seconds . . . 25 to 23 win over Ohio State, when Joe Van Ysseldyk made basket in last tbree seconds . . . brilliant stand against Purdue, when team had from 3 to 13 point leads during most of game, only to lose, 39 to 38, on long basket in last 10 seconds. AND ALL that was done with a | .'team which included four recruits Jin the lineup much of the time . . . ['·'.·.four- sophomores trying their ability j Jin big-time basketball for the first i ?.season. Outstanding among them Jiwere Joe Van Ysseldyk and Ken ||Suesens, guards, and Wally Gaddis, |swht scored 40 points after he be- 'jcame eligible Feb. 1, and earned sec- Bond'position among Hawkeye scor- in conference games. * * * |||i?'JONLY THE forwards, Kosenthal ' ahd.Schwartz, will be lost by graduation . . . it looks'as though Rollie , Williams had built a lot of character this year . . . but a good -basketball team for next year. * * * Odds and Ends . . . HERE'S a small bowl of prunes for the Webster City Freeman-Journal . . . which refers to Clear Lake as champion of the Lake's basketball conference . . . which includes only the towns around Spirit and Okoboji only--Clear Lake is North Iowa conference champion in both football and basketball this year . . . plums, however, to the Webster City team, which won its thirteenth victory of the season by beating the Lions, 27 to 15 ... and while we're on the subject, you might ask Chris Johnston why he made a call to the T. M. C. A. here about Wednesday midnight . .'. somewhat agitated, too. There were those who were raedy to loss in the sponge as far as Gene Ford was concerned following his performances with Peoria last season . . . But it seems as if they were a little hasty as far as passing judgment on the former West Bend pitcher was concerned . . . True, his record last summer was nothing to wire the home folks about, but he did do some creditable tossing at times and he was gaining experience, his most needed thing . . . He already had that blinding fast one, which an umpire in Minneapolis several years ago- termed "the best I've seen and with a genuinely baffling hop on it," to use as a starter . . . . . And a pretty good one, too, it would seem . . . . * * * At any rate . . . in Eddie Burns' Chicago Tribune dispatch from Avalon . . . anent the goings-on among P. K. Wrigley's hired hands: "Manager Grimm continued to look upon Gene Ford, last year's captain at the TTniversity of Iowa, as one of his best prospects. Ford, who played for Peoria after leaving Iowa, did not have an impressive record in his first professional job Grimm has thrown up all statistics, however, and thinks he has a comer in this ,big Iowa farm boy." * * * Of course, that statement doesn't mean that Ford is a sure star or .even a certain member of the Cubs' '·hurling staff come April . . . But 4 it does mean that the big boy and ~3 lis fast one are getting a real chance ·A ind some recognition .. . Every year if '.here are "great prospects" bob- n 'ing up in the training camps only ; o disappear completely by the time A Tie season starts . . . Whether such ) /ill be the case with Ford is not ' nown . . . But one thing can be lire, Ford is the type of fellow who i going to be in there fighting from ae start and with the recognition ; e's getting he'll be all the toucher } dislodge. CLEANERS SCRAP AS NIFTY BATTLE SEES BREWS WIN Single Point Decides Title Hottentots Win From Bush ;n Consolation Game. Scrappy basketball decided th honors in the North Iowa indcpen dent tournament here Wednesda^ night as Pabst Blue Ribbon of Ma son City defeated Marshall an Swift by a single point to win th' title. 45 to 44, and Britt's Hotten tots had scarcely a greater margi as they defeated Bush Pastry o Clear Lake, 37 to 33, in the conso lation contest. The Blue Ribbons started th show off with a bang, grabbing an early margin over the Cleaners, bu the Marshall and Swift squat stayed in the thick of the fight with Phil "Pop" Thurtle and Lei "Pat" Ryan hitting the ring to pu their team ahead at the half, IS to 18. Johnson Tops Show. Bud Johnson topped the show as he put on a one-man exhibition in the third period, and sent Pflbsi out in front again, 37 to 32, bui there wag still a dogfight o n theii hands for the winners. The lead changed hands three times in the closing period, in a rough ant tumble session, and again it was Johnson who set the Blue Ribbons ahead, 42 to 33, on another scor ing spurt. The fireworks were heaviest Thurtle and Earl Lane opened up with deadly accuracy and made i 42 to 42, but the Brewers stoppet the attack there, counted up threi points for themselves, and were stil ahead as Harry Cordle looped one from the center of the court, jus ahead of the final whistle. Britt Leads Early. The Britt Hottentots led 21 to 14 at the end of the half in the consola tion game, but Jim Anderson cu down the margin, and had his team behind only three points going into the last period. Anderson and Pau tied the score at 27 to 27 in the fina session, but McCormick and Ryd son pulled Britt ahead 37 to 33 be fore the close. Hamilton's Typists reversed the result of the Y. W. C. A. league sea son when they defeated the cham pion Hi-Tri team 21 to IS, in spite of a 14 point total for Connie Nick alow. The girls' game was a pre liminary contest.

Next week, the tough tournament road, with the Mohawks defending their state crown, begins as sectional tesls face more than SOO prep teams through the state-- j every one of them anxious to take the laurels held by Mason City since last spring. The Friday night game, preceded by a Little Mohawk contest that gets under way at 7:15, will have little effect in the Big Four conference standing. The Mohawks may win or lose--they have the league title clinched. If East high loses, it will be pushed into a tie with Waterloo West for second place, while Fort Dodge holds the cellar position with six losses and not a victory in sight. In fact, it might be a good idea, according to tradition, .if the Mohawks should lose to East. Last season,-Maso,n .City dropped a- tough game to Washington of Cedar Rapids, 20 to 19, on March 2, came home, and won nine straight tournament games and the Iowa title to wind up the season. East high breezed to an easy victory in the windup of its home schedule, winning 34 to 15 from McKinley of Cedar Rapids, while Mason City had a tough time winning from the North Iowa All- Stars Monday as the state junior college tournament wound up here, although the final score was 42 to 27. The score fails to indicate that the Class B aces were ahead as the third quarter closed.

Joe Di Maggio Will Be First Choice With Yanks, Other Youngsters Slated. By ALAN GOULD Associated Press Sports Editor NEW YORK, (/B--Rookie outfielders have caught, the eyes of ivory fanciers to an unusual extent at this year's major league baseball roundup in the south and far west. Allowing a percentage off for early enthusiam or first impressions, the fact remains that more newcomers have a chance to scale the ramparts this spring than in many a silvery moon. Joe Di Maggio, the sensational Yankee recruit from the west coast, seems destined to start the coming American league campaign as a regular. The young Italian-American will have a big burden of ballyhoo to carry around but he seems to have unusual poise as well as all- around ability. Records No Guarantees, Di Haggle's coast league batting record of .388, along with a number of other juicy minor league marks compiled by rookie stars, carry no guarantees but they can be discounted and still look good. Oscar Eckhardt, who hit .309 in the same league as Di Maggio may land a job with Brooklyn while George Puccinelli, top batsman of the International league at .359 last season, is already a fixture in the cleanup spot for the Athletics. Wilson (Dee) Miles, speedy slugger from Chattanooga, is slated for regular duty in the Washington outfield. There's a wide open race for outfield jobs on the Chicago White Sox, with Mike Kreevich, a .345 hitter last year in the American association, showing considerable "early foot" for the benefit of rail- birds. Two to Convert. Mickey Cochrane, boss of the world champion Tigers, has decided to convert two rookie infieldcrs into outfielders. One of them Rudy York, a Texas league product, has shown sufficient ability already tn warrant predictions he will stay in the big show this year, at least for relief work. York came up as a first baseman. The other prospect js diet Laabs, who hit .384 with Fort Wayne (Ind.) last season and slayed third base, diet looks like Wei Ott, has similar slugging habits and will be groomed for "AA" company, on option, if trials prove he s not yet ripe for the major leagues. Reports of heavy cannonading on :he Pacific coast indicate Chuck Klein will make a mighty effort to regain homerun hitting honors in the National league this year. Finds Range Again. The former Phillie flogger seems to have found the range again and will challenge all rivals, including Wally Berger of the Boston Bees, who led the league with 34 circuit clouts, Me] Ott of the Giants and Rip Collins of the Cardinals. Klein last led the league in 1933. He hit 21 homers last year as a part time worker. Meanwhile Boston camp followers, speculating on how many homers Jimmie Foxx will hit in his new surroundings, think the big first sacker wi!J find the range a bit difficult at Fenway park. He may be lucky to do as well as last year, when he tied Hank Greenberg for the league lead with 36 round trippers. Joe Cronin, Sox pilot, optimis- :ically predicts 50 homers for Foxx but when challenged he declined to wager on the proposition. Foxx struck his peak year in 1932, whc-Jl he hit 58. Klomp Nails Joe Hear ity in Ring Test North Iowa Punchers Meet in Tourney at D. M. Ring. DES MOINES. (,T)--Four young clouters remained in Jack Dempsey's regional heavyweight elimination tournament Thursday after a wild night of slugging in the third and quarterfinal rounds. Mike Klomp of Lime Springs, Jim Morris of Keokuk, Quentin Hill of Des Moines and Charlie Oakcs of San Antonio, Tex., survived two rounds of battling Wednesday night. In the quarterfinals Klomp defeated Joe Hcarity of Malvcrn; Morris scored a technical one round knockout over John Yea man of Des Moines; and Oakcs knocked out John Malccck of Cedar Rapids in three rounds. Camera Has Troubles as Managers' Situation Has Attention of Sports Body NEW YORK, (.T)--Primo Camera, the former heavyweight champion', may get a chance to step back into the picture as a title contender after bis 10 round bout with Isidore Gastanaga of Cuba Friday or he may get the air before the bout takes place. That all depends upon what the New York State Athletic Commission decides about certain rumors that have been floating around concerning the relations between Carnera's manager, Louis Sorcsi. and D. J. Rizzi, Gastanaga's new pilot. The rumor, which cropped up Wednesday was that Rizzi used to work for Sorcsi until a few weeks ago. The commissioners decided to investigate and promised to call the fight off if the report is found to be true.
