PRESSED^ 9/Al MITCHELL^ North lowans Play Basketball MOHAWKS MAKE FIRST BID IN MEET Four north Iowa high schools were making their bid Thursday for a state basketball championship, with 12 others, as the biggest event of the state high school athletic season got under way at Cedar Falls. * « * t Mason City, which won't be \' considered here, since -it has ·' been given other space, with Charles City's Comets, Elma and Ledyard, are the north Iowa outfits. The Comets made their first state tournament trip this week. In all the seasons that Clif Boylan has had the reins at the Floyd county school.--with all the excellent teams that he has turned out--he's never before had a championship contender. * *t « The Comets were the first to test an opponent's mettle Thursday as they met Burlington In the contest that set tournament wheels in motion. It was a tough road that the Cowries City boys took before they got to Cedar Falls, through sectional and district tournaments. * * * In a sectional played at the big Firemen's auditorium floor in New ti Hampton, they were in two games, 1 winning from Cresco 29 to 13 and ·' from Waverly 19 to 16. Both victories were over conference teams || that the Comets had defeated before. The district tournament was the real test of the Comets. Manchester, . scrapping little outfit, nearly upset them, but missed 14 free throws to lose by 25 to 22. Eight after that came Oelwein, in a final contest. Burnett pitched in a short attempt to win 28-27 in the last seconds, for Charles City. * * v Speaking of Manchester, this business of basketball teams' wear- Ing knee length stockings has bobbed up again. First It seemed that the teams to the west and north of Mason City were especially given to wearing the lengthy stockings; then Lplington tod Hampton came to the Jistrtaetouruament sporting them. Now the report is that Manchester has adopted the long hosiery, as 'well .as Elma, nlgb. rolling bunch of boys who are going to the state meet from north Iowa for the second time in four years. S * * There's a lot been said about Elma in this column. I don't know a man on the team personally, nor by sight--have never seen the outfit in action. But a north Iowa team that racks np victory after victory, dropping only one game in the season, just has its share of comment due. Especially when it has such fellows as the Tates and Eifflers, who are real basketball players. * * e The Buna cagers seem to have beautiful consistency, from their records. Look at the scores of the sectional tournament: Elma 30, Frederika 19; Elma 32, Alta Vista 13; Elma 31, Tripoli 18. District scores were at wider variations: Elma 25, Delhi 20; Elma 38, Randalia 13. It's noteworthy, It not significant, that the north Iowa teams, with the exception of Mason City, are all members of basketball conferences, and champions In their conferences for this season. * * * , Charles City won in the Norths',' east Iowa loop; Elma was undefeat- J p ed in the Four Square circuit, of "which Irwin Edie at Rudd is secre- 9 tary--he officiates · at the state !' tourney--and Ledyard won in the I! North Kossuth league. I' 1 * * * Ledyard is a familiar team to Mason Cityans, and many others In this territory, inasmuch as the smooth-working outfit played through the district tournament here in a style that attracted attention. The team drew a tough assignment in Gcneseo township for its first game--Geneseo the giantkiller, 193-t style, that knocked off Dunkerton In a district meet, 33 to 31. a » 4 And Hugh Johnson is at Cedar Falls Not leading a blue eagle, however. He's a Clarinda high basketball artist. A sportsmanship trophy will be given this year, as it has been--Mason City won it last season. The presentation will be made by the Waterloo Junior Chamber of Commerce. CHARLES CITYANS FALTER, LOSE AT FIRST CAGE GAME Burlington Wins by 21-18 as State Meeting 1$ Set Under Way. BULLETIN CEDAR FALLS, March 15. (P)--Charles City's \ Comets pat up a brisk argiiment, but slightly superior power gave Burlington high school a close victory as the teams opened the state basketball tournament here. The score was 21 to 18 at the finish. By STAFF WRITER CEDAR FALLS, March 15.--Mason. City high school's Mohawks were in good spirits, following a brisk workout, as they -waited to'do battle with Roosevelt of Des Moines in the seventh first round contest o£ the Iowa basketball tournament finals. The game was set for 8:10 Thursday night. The Cerro Gordo contenders for the crown held by Dunkerton since last season went to the Iowa State Teachers college gymnasium for a half hour of drill Wednesday afternoon, and found the college couri much to their liking. Floor Same Width; The gymnasium boasts a floor State Brand Upsets Billman's in Round Robin Match OVERTIME SCRAP TAKEN 23 TO 21 BY LONE BASKET somewhat longer than the Mason City high school, but the Tutor hardwood is exactly the same width and hence should not hinder th: Mason City offense as it drives up the sides and out of the corners t- BROADCAST The only -way in whicl Mason Cityans will be able to follow their team as it plays Roosevelt Df Des Moines Thursday night at 3:10 will be through the Globe- Gazette's special service. There will be no radio broadcast. Beginning shortly after 8 o'clock Thursday night, a running account of the contest .will be heard from the speech : amplifier system used in football and world series' description, at the front entrance to the Globe- Gazette building. The service will come by special telephone arrangements, direct from the Cedar Falls field- house to the Globe-Gazette. Two members of the sports staff will be on hand at Cedar Falls to give a snappy account of the Mohawks' championship bid. EIGHT--COUNT 'EM--EIGHT LEFTIES ON BOSTON RED SOX MOUND STAFF!

Schmidt's City club won a pair from Stoddard Stone in the other league meeting, and Walter Bender carried off all individual honors with a 244 single and a 568 series. No 1,000 games, no 600 series, and only six 200's were rolled, the A. M. Scbanke team high of 2.T83 standing as the week's high mark. STCDEBAKER SIX meet the sliding zone defense of the Roughriders. Their post play and slow break system of offense will be tempered somewhat as the Mohawks attempt to draw out the Roosevelt guards. Howard Stoecker, six-four giant at the Mason City center post, will probably draw into a corner instead of working the free throw lane as has been his custom at home. Direction of play in his direction will tend to open the center of the court for long attempts by Tournament Capt. Merrill Herbener, who has moved back to the guard position vacated by Bobby Burns. Burns Not Eligible. Bums, who has led the Mohawk drives all season, as playing captain, became ineligible for further prep competition as he reached the 20 year mark on Wednesday, The age limit of 20 years is placed on high school athletes by the High School Athletic association. Clif Hathaway, who was added as a Mohawk reserve when Burns became ineligible, was a casualty in the drill of Wednesday, slightly injuring his ankle. The hurt was not serious. The Mohawks also took opportun ity to watch Clarinda, Davenport and Elma practice on Wednesday before returning to their Waterloo headquarters. Starters Listed. The starting lineups will see a combination for Mason City which has yet to be tried in actual competition. Costa "Gus" Rumeliote and Bob Harrer will play at the forward positions, Howard Stoecker in the center, and Captain Herbener will 1 team with Ray Barr at guard. To free Stoecker and take better advantage of his scoring power, Barr will draw the assignment of checking Marcellus McMichael, Roughrider all-state ace of three seasons previous to this.

By RUSSELL NEWLAND Associated Press Sports Writer. PASO ROBLES, Cal., March 15. B--Pittsburgh's Pirates are going unning for the National league rize this season with high hopes hat a newcomer to the crew will lean the difference between first lace and the runnerup position they ave occupied the last two years. The burly baseballer in whose ex- erience Manager George Gibson is lacing considerable trust is Charles Red" Lucas, late of the Cincinnati .eds pitching corps and a pinch itter who really "hits in the inches." Eight Years With Keds. Lucas landed with the Pirates after eight years with the Reds. Manager Gibson reasons the broad houldered right hander should bol- ter his hurling staff almost on the trength of his 1933 record. For a ail end club, "Red" won 10 games and lost 16. His pinch hitting is ex- ected to provide one of the hot pots of the Pirate attack. During as eight years tenure at Cincinati, Lucas compiled pinch hitting "rand average "of around .400. He it for .287 in 75 games last season. Aside from the addition of Lucas, he Pirate squad is virtually the ame as that which led the pennant larade part of last season and railed the Giants in at the finish. Outfield Strong. Gibson believes his outfield com- ares with any in the league. It lines ip the Waner brothers, Paul ana Joyd, and Freddie Lindstrom. Lloyd Waner may be shifted from left to center field this season, a position he held down regularly until Lindstrom came over from the Giants a year ago. Lindstrom is equally at home in left.

Because many of Iowa's lakes and ponds are extremely low due to the drouth of the past few seasons, the mild winter has not frozen them to the bottom. This in itself has saved many fish. Many lakes were open in places and the oxygen condition has bsen better for fish for this season. S. P. Baur, fisheries supervisor, reports all lakes testing satisfactorily at this time. KANSAS CITY, March 15. With one of the leading favorites i the discard, three western contend ers, from San Francisco, Denve and Laramie, Wyo., five Missou: Valley league teams play the qua) terfinals of the A. A. U. nationa basketball tournament. The only major upset in the thir round last night was the defeat o the Ogden, Utah, Boosters, by th University of Wyoming's Rock Mountain collegiate champions, wh overcame a 22-point lead to win b The Tulsa Diamond Oilers, de fending champions, met little re sistance in their 39-22 triumph ove the Firestone Californians from Lo Angeles. Eight southpaws, probablj- the greatest collection of portsiders any major league club has ever had at one time, grace the pitch- Ing roster of the Boston Ked Sox. And one of the eight is the ace left-hander of the world--Lefty Grove. Bob Wciland is the only southpay holdover from the 198S Ked Sox team. Like Grove, the Sox acquired Herb Pcnnock and Eubo Walbcrg from other American league teams. The rest are rookies of whom Fred Oestermul- ler appears the best. Major Clubs Round Into Shape in Southern Land Cochrane Plans Move Diamond Bread Overwhelms Cleaners to Win by 51 to 17 Count. A stubborn fight and an upset victory in one game, and a one- sided scoring spree in another were provided for basketball fans in Mason City Wednesday niglit as the .second session ol' round robin contests for the city championship was pluyed by Y. M. C. A. league leaders. Stale Brand creamery fought Oilman's Transfers, North Iowa lampions, to a 21-21 standstill at he final gun after the lead changed ands several times through the ontest in one of the season's best ames. Then the Buttermakers com- Jeted the story as Bud Johnson. Jensen and Walter Roettgei are available. Roettger came with Aicas in the Cincinnati swap for Adam Comorosky and Tony Piet. The infield combination has been proved, with Gus Suhr at first, Tom Thevenow at second, Floyd Vaughn at short and the reliable "Pie" Traynor at third. Recruit Shows Promise. Harry" Lavagetto, purchased from Oakland of the Coast league, is a promising infield recruit. Behind the plate Earl Grace and Hal Finney claim first and second string positions respectively with Tom Padden, also a holdover, battling a newcomer, Art Veltman, for the third berth. Veltman, drafted from Oakland, has shown impressively. He hit .331 last year. The pitching staff offers but few worries. Lucas is a certain starter, as will be Harold Smith, Larry French, the star southpaw, and probably Ralph Birkofer, another left-hander who was recalled from Toronto last midseason and produced satisfactorily. Holdover List. Full. Other holdovers include Heine Meine, Bill Swift, Bill Harris, Waite Hoyt and Leon Chagnon. Meine and Swift probably will round out the regular starters. Two bright rookie prospects fighting for one of the nine pitching berths are Lloyd Johnson, a six foot four inch southpaw purchased from the San Francisco Missions, and Darrell Blanton, from St. Joseph. Blanton, a right hander, won 21 and lost 7 last season. STATE'S TRACK AGES IN ACTION Drake, Iowa, State, Iowa, Grinnell to Bid for Quad Meet Title. IOWA CITY, March 15. (.¥»--A spirited battle for points, with Drake, Iowa State and the University of Iowa all possible winners, is in prospect when the three teams and Grinnell meet here Saturday in their annual quadrangular track meet. The Pioneers, despite the presence of several able performers, are not expected to show the balanced strength to enable them to fight for the lead. State Has Big Job. Iowa State, defending champion, will have its hands full defending its title against a powerful Drake squad and a Hawkeye team that is much stronger than the club that finished a poor four last year. The Cyclones have two individual champions, Guse in the half mile and Miller in the high jump. In addition to several other field stars, they will have Wessling and Scott, two capable quartermilers, to run that distance and also run with the mile relay team. Iowa State has scored dual triumphs over both Drake and Grinnell. Drake Has Power. Drake is expected to score heav- iiy in the high jump, broad jump, distance races and the low hurdles. The Bulldogs won the Missouri valley indoor meet this year and have an evenly balanced team. The University of Iowa will be paced by Capt. Sidney Dean in the 400 and by Francis Cretzmeyer, sophomore dash, hurdling and jumping- star. for Third Sack Candidate. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TIGERS LAKELAND, Fla., March 15. (.¥ --With Herman (Flea) Clifton primed to step into the third base job, Manager Mickey Cochrane of the Detroit Tigers waited anxiously today for Marvin Owen to get a suit and get into practice, to determine whether he is going to be able to take the third sack assignment. Owen came in Wednesday from Hot Springs where he has been taking the baths. "I feel good," he said, "but I won't know how good, until I get 'out there and toss the hall around awhile." ST. YANKEES PETERSBURG, Fla.--Col STABLE BLAZES, HORSES PERISH 1932 Futurity Winner and Obscure Filly Saved as Eight Die. NEW YORK, March 15. (.T)--Defective wiring was believed today to have caused a fire at a Belmont park stable from which only Kerry Patch, winner of the Futurity in 1932, and an obscure filly were rescued. Eight horses, five of them owned by Lee Rosenberg, a broker, were destroyed. Jacob Ruppert, owner of the Yan kees, is due here today-for s-'SMrt vacation but it was believed he would devote a little time to the business of trying to bring the holdouts, Bill Dickey and Lyn Lary, into line. So far Dickey has been firm in his demand for $1,500 more than offered. Lary hasn't named any figures but the impression is he would like to be traded to a club which would use him more regularly than the Yankees have. DODGERS ORLANDO, Fla.--The ultimatum issued to Ray Benge, Brooklyn's holdout pitcher, brought quick results but Manager Casey Stengel and Business Manager Bop Quinn are planning to use different tactics on Al Lopez and Hack Wilson. Quinn is expected to go to Tampa in a day or two to talk things ovei with Lopez. As for Wilson, Stengel remarked: "If he wants to come in, it's al! right with me. And if he doesn't want to come in that's all right." PHILLIES WINTER HAVEN, Fla.--Whatever the caliber of the Phils, the players in Philadelphia's National league club are off to an even start. In their first encounter, a 6-inning affair, the regulars and the "Yam- runs, made two errors gans" each got five seven hita, committed Stoefen, Shields in Semifinal at Indoor Tennis Championship NEW YORK, March 15. UP--The tennis titans of America--Lester Stoefen, avowed aspirant for the Davis cup team, and Frank X. Shields, who is regarded as a certain internationalist--met in the seventh regiment armory today in the outstanding semifinal match of the national indoor championships. The champion for the past two. years, Gregory S. Mangin, went up against Sidney B. Wood, Jr., fair- haired Davis cup player for several years, in the other semifinal encounter. Shields played superbly yesterday against Dr. Eugene H. McCauliff. Stoefen gave a masterful exhibition against George M.

A. will be held Friday night at 7 o'clock in the Hi-Y room at the "Y," Ivan A. Barnes announced Thursday.

Has Uniform Weights Set for Wrestling Meets AMES, March 15.--Weights in two classes, formerly 115 and 125 pounds, for the National Amateur Athletic Union wrestling meet to be held here April 13-14 were changed recently to 118 and 126 pounds by th union's officials, Hugo Otopalik. Iowa State wrestling coach, announced yesterday. The A. A. U. weights now corres- pond to collegiate weights, with the addition of the 112 pound division.

George Martin, Eagle Grove, who was graduated from Iowa State last spring, will enter the meet. He won the national collegiate crown in the 165-pound division last year and last week was a Midwest A. A. U. winner at Cherokee. and had six men stranded on bases. ATHLETICS FORT MYERS, Fla--With the Philadelphia Athletics planning to carry five outfielders this season, three of the berths apparently are clinched. Doc Cramer, Bihg Miller and Bob Johnson are viewed around the training camp as certainties, with Ed Coleman considered the leading contender for fourth place. That leaves Lou Finney, recalled from Montreal, and Ray Radcliffe, late of St. Paul, to fight over the remaining assignment. SENATORS BILOXI, Miss.--The American league champion Senators expected to swing into real training camp stride today, with the arrival of a batch of the first struig infieldcrs and outfielders. Owner Clark Griffith expects to get the first shot at two of the expected arrivals. Neither Heinle Manush nor Joe Kuhel have signed, and Grif may make some concessions to get their names on the line. GIANTS TAMPA, Fla.--It's been a good many seasons since Mel Ott first appeared as the "boy wonder" of the New York Giants but the young veteran appears to be rounding into shape as rapidly as most of the recruits.

Loterbour had a total of 7 points for the State Brand outfit, and Rholl. co}- lected 4. _The 'whelmed a crippled Marshall and Swift team by a count of 51 to 17 as Ced Connelly worked to best adr vantage under the ring, being credited with the tournament's high scoring mark when the contest bad ended, as he scored 25 points. A total of 11 goals was credited to the lanky center. JJoyer Adds Scores. Boyer added 5 goals to the Baker total and Isaacson got 3, each player caging a free throw. Tracy, with Z goals and 3 free throws, and Zander, with 3 goals, were the aces of the Cleaner team. A respite of one night was to be taken by the "Y" cagers, no contests being scheduled in the round robin tourney until Friday evening. The big winup. of the tournament will be played at 8 o'clock, as the Billman team gets a last chance to down the Diamond Bread Bakers, who will sweep the series if they win the contest. State Brand-Cleaners Play. State Brand and the Marshall- Swift Cleaners will meet Friday night in a second contest, at 9 o'clock. The Diamond Bread team, undefeated, leads the standing as tha teams rest before the windup. The Transfers have lost and won in two games, as have the State Brand cagers.

He worked out for about 30 minutes yesterday and after practice reported to Trainer Doc Woods that for the first time in his entire pro ball career he had a sore arm. Manager Bucky Harris says there is no reason to believe Grove will not be able to take the remainder of the spring training in stride, however, and he expects a day of rest will get him back in shape again. CUBS LOS ANGELES--In an effort to determine as quickly as possible, how much to expect from his recruit pitchers, Manager Charley Grimm of the Chicago Cubs assigned a pair of them to work in the opening game of the exhibition I series today against Los Angele.s.
