MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 9 1936 NINE HOOSIER SQUADS SHARE HONOR TEAM JOBS By Al Mitchell Out of the Pressbox Odds and Ends . . . KESSLER IS ONLY PLAYER TO RATE UNANIMOUS VOTE APPARENTLY the good people Chicago, Michigan, Ohio Get of Hayfield have been caused con. siderable anxiety by a slip of m; typewriter. Reading the story of Al bia junior college's victory in the state tournament . . . more particularly the story of Albia's semifinal win over Burlington . . . sevcr- - al of them started wondering. A. C Taylor writes to ask: Can a man be substituted to make a free throw? * His question was raised by a statement that Clarence Dixon, midget guard, who limped out of the game in the first quarter . . . came back in the lineup to sink the free throw that won." * * * The Hayfield basketball fans . they're players and officials, too are perfectly right on their rules. A man cannot enter the game to shoot a free throw. If the player he is replacing is just at the point of making a free shot, the substitute must wait on the sidelines until the attempt is made and play has stopped again What happened in the Albia-Bur- Hngton game, as the Hayfield folks surmised, was this: With the score 4 to 2, early in the game, Wayne Heeves replaced Dixon at guard. Just about a half minute before the end, Dixon came back in at guard, Reeves moved to forward, and Bob Baxter left the game. The score was tied at 26 to 26. On the first tipoff after Dixon's re-entry, Jim Keller fouled the Albia player . . . who stepped up to the free throw line and dropped through the winning point. Nick Miletich was fouled on the last tipoff of the game, and made his free toss, but stepped over the line . . . so that Dixon's single shot was the winning margin . and was made in good order. SPEAKING of Nick Miletich the husky Albia guard scored 44 points to lead the state champions through t h e tournament . . . h e also scored 214 points during the season, again leading the team. Harold Reeves ran second with 196 counters for the season. * i* * FRED "PECK" GENEVA . . . Altaia coach .

The name of Cretzmeyer in North Iowa signifies athletics . . . look: Francis Cretzmeyer of Emmfts- burg is 1936 track captain at the University of Iowa . . . where for two years he has been high point man. He competes in five events and has shattered all records for individual scoring there. He is a former Emmetsburg high school and junior college athlete. Charles Cretzmeyer . . . his cousin from Algona . . . is a member of the mile relay team at Harvard univer- Lsity where he is a sophomore stu- I'dent. He competed a t .

Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO, (.T)--Purdue and Indiana, co-holders of the 1936 western conference basketball title, Monday shared honors with Michigan, Ohio State and Chicago on the Associated Press' annual all- star team selected by the ten coaches. The mythical first team, which with a couple of weeks of practice probably would make · the United States a highly capable Olympic entrant, if the rules permitted such a thing, lines up with Bob Kessier of Purdue, and Bill Haarlow of Chicago, a pair of brilliant scorers and first team selections in , 1935, at forwards, John Townsend of Michigan, at center, and Vernon Huffman of Indiana, and little William ' Harrison (Tippy) Dye of Ohio State, at the guards. Kessler Tops Voting. Kessler, a senior, winner of the individual scoring championship and the spearhead of Purdue's better than a point-a-minute attack, was the only unanimous selection. Haarlow, also a senior, was a close second in the voting, receiving nine first team votes and oae for the second five. Huffman, a junior, was rated as the best guard by nine coaches, while one failed to mention him. The battles for the other two positions were close down to the finish. Townsend, an Indianapolis boy who made good at Michigan and the only sophomore to be named, played regularly at forward throughout the season, but was the choice of five coaches as first team center, while another named him for the second team. Right behind .him was Earl Thomas of Ohio State, who received two firsfc'tejwn- votes and. five for the second team. . Dye Narrow Choice. Dye, another junior, outpointed Paul Malaska, brilliant Purdue sophomore, and Harry Combes of Illinois, for the other guard position by a narrow margin. One coach and several officials called Dye the most polished all-around performer in the conference. The second team forward places went to Warren Whitlinger of Ohio State, and Kennelh Gunning of Indiana, both of whom made the second team a year ago. Thomas of Ohio State won the reserve center job, with Combes and Malaska at the guards. The first five, led by Kessler, who scored 160 points, accounted for a grand total of 548 points dur- ng the season. Haarlow, who pointed Kessler in the 1935 individual race, was second with 151; Townsend had 108, Huff man'76 and Dye 53. Honorable Mention. Honorable mention was earned by the following: Forwards: Jewell Young, Purdue, and Marcellus (Mike) McMichael, Northwestern; centers, Bob Riegel, :ilinois; Fred Fechtman, Indiana, and Ed Stege, Wisconsin, guards, Wilbur Henry, Illinois; Wendel Walker, Indiana; Dick Seebac, Minnesota; Norman Vance, Northwestern; Austin Lambert and Glenn Downey, Purdue; and George Rud- ness, Michigan.

BRITT--The Pabst Blue Ribbon basketball team of Mason City defeated the Britt Hottentots by the lop-sided score of 50 to 16. The Blue Ribbon team, champions of North Iowa for this season gave one of the fastest and cleverest exhibitions of basketball ever displayed on the local floor. The game opened with both teams counting the floor and the first quarter found the Pabst boys in front 12 to 7. They were still leading at the half, 18 to 9. It was during the third quarter that the champions hit their stride as John Cookman, all tournament forward, and Ced Connelly, lanky center,, went on a scoring spree and dropped field goals from all angles of the court. Don McCormick. local guard who was picked on the first all-tournament t( : am was no match for Cookman. while Connelly completely out-classed Ted Rydson, who was also picked for center on the first team. Scoring honors went to Connelly, of the Blue Ribbon team, with 8 field goals and 2 free throws, followed'by Cookman with 7 goals; the defensive work of Bunk Isaacson was also outstanding, holding Bob Dana, local forward who scored 9 field goals against the Marshall- Swift team in the tournament to a lone goal while collecting 5 himself.

ST, ANSGAR GETS EDGE IN SPLURGE Waverly Falls as Saint Five Cracks Net for 11 Points in.Closmg Minutes. WAVERLY--Pouring in 11 points during the final four minutes in a breath-taking- rally, St. Ansgar's high stepping basketball teajn came from behind to defeat Waverly, 31 to 21, and won its eighteenth victory in as many starts here Friday night. It was a thrilling battle all the way, with Coach Walt Koch's Waverly team out-speeding the great visiting quintet until that final rally started. The Waverly defense proved sufficient in every case except that of Janzow, St. Ansgar forward, who split the net seven times from the field and twice from the free throw line to score 16 points. It was Janzow, too, who sparked the rally. Working smoothly. Waverly built up an 8 to 3 lead in the opening period and was in front 12 to 7 at the half. St. Ansgar came back a little stronger in the third period and reduced the margin to 16 to 14. but could not pull even until the middle of the fourth quarter.

Kinch dropped the ball through three times in the opening period to help the east side boys to an 8 to 6 lead at the close of the quarter, but the visitors forged into a 15 to 14 lead at the half intermission. Lane, Clear Lake' guard, found the net often with one-hand shots during the third period, and the even exchange of baskets left the count tied at 24 all with one session left to go. The Franklin boys took a four point lead at the outset of the last period when Hallenbeck dribbled in for a counter, and Davidson connected from long range. Lane evened the count personally with a pair of baskets, and Ostrander gave the in. vaders a three point lead with a basket and free toss. The final scoring gesture of the night was a long shot by Hallenbeck to bring the loca.Is within a point of the leaders, but the final whistle prevented further scoring by the luckless Thunderbolts.

WHEN HE PUTS UP SOJJAWK IT'S GOT TO BE GOOD ONE Giants Take Life Too Easy, Says National League Star Arbiter. By EDDIE BKIET/I Associated Press Sports Writer ST. PETERSBURG, Fla,, LrP)-- Bill Stewart, National league umpire, is the only such official to double in two major sports . . . besides umpiring he referees in the Naational Hockey league . . . Bill says i Pepper Martin of the Cardinals is the most honest ball player in the National league . . . "If Pepper kicks you know it's legitimate," says Bill. He thinks the Giants take too much for granted and could use a little more fight . . . and he hasn't a doubt but that the New York- Penn league is the toughest in the country for an umpire . . . He can't forget a bad beating he received from "200 or 300" New York-Pcnn fans. Well, well our St. Pete shuf- flcboard players strayed off the reservation to go over to Orlando--and get licked . . . Here's how Mat Hews laughs it off in his shufflcboard column in the Evening Independent: "What with one thing and another, and the breaks and all that, besides putting up at a hotel where the heating plant was out of order and the boiler makers were hammering away at it all night, how could one shoot glamorous shuffles the next day? . . . We are a bunch ot good sports, however, and it is all in the day's play." Everywhere you turn down here you see a sport-writing Slocum . . . Bill, Sr., the old bell ram of the New York pack, is with the Giants at Pcnsacola for the American . . . young Mike, a son, is covering the Dodgers at Clcarwatcr, also for the American . . . and any day now. Jack, another son, may bob up in some camp for the New York Mirror . . . as they say in the big' town . . . what about Nemo Leibold, then manager of the Columbus club, wanting to fire Burgess Whitehead. the National league's only Phi Beta Kappcr, because he was "too dumb to learn?" . , . Larry McPhail, Columbus president at the time, spied Whitchcad's key and reversed Leibold. 4: * * Odds and ends: Judge Landis looks very fit ... John Henry Lewis, the light hcavyweig-ht champion, used to be a church sexton in Arizona . . . Charlie Ruffing is still here, but unsigned . . . John Moir, Notre Dame forward, has averaged nearly 12 points a game for 19 contests. The boys down here say Arthur Hendrix' tennis bubble will burst when he starts playing on grass courts . . . Tampa is all steamed up because Larry McPhail is talking of having the Reds do all their training in Puerto Rico next year .

I I I .000 NEW HAMPTON -- Members of the Northeast Iowa conference concluded their 1935-36 season during 1 the past week with the two top teams breaking even with non-conference outfits. Waverly was unable to cope with a last minute scoring spree which, netted St. Ansgar its eighteenth, straight victory on the Go-Hawk floor Friday and lost 31 to 21. Leading through most of the game, the fast stepping Waverly team's defense crumpled when St. Ansgar pushed in 11 points during the last few minutes. New Hampton was more fortunate in winning its fourteenth victory of the season against the Clear Lake- Lions, 2-1 to IS. Eoony Morgan camo through with the necessary punch in the last half. Crcsco ended the season by avenging a mid-season, loss, closing the Osagc card with a defeat 22 to 15. Earlier in the week a postponed game with Decorah was played, the Spartans winning a nip and tuck contest from the Vikings, 25 to 21. Lee Paine set a scoring record over at Decorah when the Charles City Comets won the last game of the season from the Vikings, 32 to 24. Paine scored S field goals and 8 free throws. Oelwein handed Nashua its fourth straight loss, 24 to 15. The loss pushed Nashua out of the first division. Pre-season dope proved reliable to the extent that none of the teams were believed to have a chance to go through the year undefeated. New Hampton lost its only game of the season to the second place Waverly team. Waverly lost on its home floor to a rejuvenated Charles City- team that New Hampton had trimmed badly on the Comets' home floor only three days before. Cresco, undefeated in the regular season last year lost to Osage on the Spartans' home floor in the only conference victory for the Green team in two years. Rudd Fans Attracted by Feature Contests at High School Floor RUDD--Two feature games will draw local cage fans to the high school gymnasium here, as the five Finch Brothers will meet the five Meyers brothers of Col- wcll, and the local faculty will oppose the school board and bus drivers. Dr. H. A. Lockstader, Otto Brandau and Louis Clay will be the hottest prospects to star for the school board, while Harm Bohlen will do the heavy scoring for the faculty and bus drivers. Clarence Tesch is expected to do the light scoring for the same team. The Finch brothers are all sons of Archie Finch of Rudd, and like the Meyers boys, are all former or present high school players. Four of the brothers live here, while Harold, former Iowa State college baseball star, is married and lives at Guttenberg.
