MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUAEY 29 M 1937 MATT Y_B ELL EYES IOWA U GRID OPENING OUT of the PRESSBOX By Al Mitchell DO YOU KNOW? What Is the one-mile bicycle speed record? This corner ran across an article the other day . '. . by Edward .1. Storey who happens to coach at Mamaroneck, N. Y., h i g h school. YOUNGER. ATHLETES NEED SMALLER BALL Coach Storey says . . . in the Athletic Journal t h a t one real need, is finding a basketball suitable for use in junior high schools. After experimentation . . . h e writes , . . "we found the regular varsity basketball .was too large and heavy for younger athletes." So ... we developed a junior basketball and, according to Storey, i't is ideal for use by the younger and smaller boys and girls who play basketball either as an intramural sport' or as an interschool sport. * * * We'd say that the idea is swell. For no doubt youngsters in junior high school can't get their first lessons in passing a basketball, or shooting for the basket, with an ob.iect too heavy to control. Not .only heavy . . . but large, too. And starting off youngsters with a different-sized ball than they .will use later in high school nnd college, won't affect their ability to handle the larger-sized ball later. Just as in shotputting . . . -lot example. Younger athletes generally compete with an eight OL 12 pound shot, older boys with a 16 pound weight. Frequently a fellow who shows ability with the lighter weight will go on to stardom with the heavier one The same should apply to the use of different-sized basketballs One encouraging factor in finding a ball adaptable to the strength and size of youngei players is t h a t , more and bettei high school basketball players will be developed. * V ff POT "SHOTS--Having an ovcr- ___supply of.,records . . .'here are a ·lew for you: It has been estimated that 1,200,000 basketball games arc played annually. And 80,000,000 persons see these congests . . . The longest home winning streak is claimed by Carleton college, which won 64 straight . . .

Finals of the jaysee tournament are scheduled for Saturday night. Led by prep all-stater Ralph Frank, Webster City edged out Sheldon 31 to 29 in the first game played Thursday night. Outstanding in ball-handling and floor work, Frank paced the way for his mates. Webster City consistently pierced the zone defense of Sheldon, sinking them from the side and mid-court. Sheldon had more shots, from close range, but none were as effective as Webster City's. Griffin, who made four field- goals, and Casjens, good for six fieldgoals and two free throws, were the bulwarks of a losing Sheldon attack. Northwestern's rangy team from Orange City utilised its height to outpoint Waldorf college of Forest City 40 to 33. Its "shortest 1 man, Merlin Kraai, was 6 feet I'/a inches tall, and the tallest, Scer- rcnberg, a guard, towered G feet 6 inches into the ozone. It was too much height for Waldorf to compete with, although Jerry Fox and Clarence Anderson played outstanding games in an effort to save the day for the Forest Cily- ans. Although they led by a mere 12 to 8 score at the half, EsthervilJe's Jaysees pulled away to a 35 to 19 victory over Cherokee in the f i n a l game Thursday night. Orris Warrington, who scored 12 points, and Knutson and Miller were the best cagers for Eslhervillc, while for the losing Cherokee quintet Timmins and McWilliams played superior games.
