By DAVID KAUFMAN With, the curtains being lowered on another basketball season, fans can look forward to the sectional and aeml-pro tournaments for further thrills of the cage sport. If the Mohawks win the sectional tourney, there Is 'a strong possibility of the district meet being- held here. Anyone desiring to see the high school and junior college basketball coaches in action on the court should attend the semi-pro tournament now in process at the Y. M. C. A. Both Judge Grimsley and Chick Sutherland play on the Diamond Bread outfit. Judge and Chick are a couple of breadwinners when it comes to making points for the bakery team. The Trojans travel to Emmetsburg Feb. 27 and 28 for their Northwest District tournament The junior college cagers will be up against some stiff competition, being- In the same meet with several teams who have defeated them. Among these teams are: Brltt, Fort Dodge, Webster City, Marshalltown and Estnerville. Another strong quintet entered is Sheldon, a team that has led the Hawkeye conference for almost the entire season, to date. The "lucky seven," as it is known to followers of the ancient game of "craps," is an unlucky number to the Mohawks. Three of their four defeats this season have been lost by seven point margins. The Mohawks lost the Sioux City game on free throws, missing 10 charity shots. The high school cagera missed many tries from under the basket, and the Central high cagers took advantage of this by taking the ball up the floor before the Mohawk defense was in position. Judge Grimsley says the Sioux City quintet has a good team, consisting of big stalky fellows, -which resembled last year's team a lot. Warriugton, the Iowa sophomore back who achieved football fame by scoring the winning touchdown against Detroit last season, played against the Trojan grid warriors several years ago. The Jensvold brothers, also members of the Iowa backfield last year, also 'played against Mason City grid teams a few years ago. These grid men, who have achieved fame in college football, indicate the caliber of opponents the Mohawks and Trojans play. Hughes Bryant, former Mohawk hurdler, who is attending- the University ot Iowa, made a successful entry into Big Ten competition during a dual meet against Chicago. Bryant, a sophomore, proved he can travel In fast company by taking first in the 70 yard high hurdles event. Several of his records still stand at Roosevelt stadium. Altho Fort Dodge has held the superiority over the Mohawks in football, it is unable to cope with the high school cagers. The Dodgers have won only 2 out of the last 12 games played against the Mohawks. Out of 85 games played, the Mohawks have won 68 and lost 17, including tournament games. This record was made during the last four years. The greatest individual display of basketball took place' In the Clear Lake game of the 1929-30 season and was made by Grelk. The Mohawk center, who then played guard, caught the ball on the tip- off and sank a basket from beyond the middle of the floor, doing this three successive times before the Clear Lakers woke up. The three baskets were made within one minute. MOHAWK MEMORIES In 1926, a total of eight overtime periods were played during the schedule. A "lively ball" must have been introduced in basketball during the past few years. Several years ago, if the Mohawks ran up 25 points a game, it was regarded as one of the largest scores of the season. Nowadays, if the Mohawks fail to garner at least 25 points in a game, their followers say they are off on their shooting. An example of the increased number of points being rung up by the current quintet can be found by comparison. The 1925-23 edition of the high school had an average of 20 points a game, while the current team has a 27 point average, to date. However, this may be due to the fact that the 1925-26 team played a schedule which included two games apiece with Dubuque, Oskaloosa, Spirit.Lake, Sioux City, and single games with Albert Lea, Minn., and Marshalltown. Incidentally, the latter team was defeated, contrary to the defeat they handed the current team. The football team also played a harder schedule than the last Mohawk grid team. Among the teams played were: Oskaloosa, North and Roosevelt highs of Des Moines, Blue Earth, Minn., and Dubuque. Even Oran Pape, famous University of Iowa back of a few years ago, was unable to halt the 1S125 Mohawk team, which romped over Dubuque by the comfortable score of 22-6.

UNIVERSITY MAN GIVES WARNING Commerce Professor States Control of Forwarding Firms Needed. IOWA CITY, Feb. 21.--Some method of public control is needed to check the devious activities of railroad controlled forwarding companies before theae expanding organizations further violate principles of fair competition. Homer Cherrington, University of Iowa commerce college professor, has voiced this warning- after a study of the methods by which some railroads are circumventing the public will. Traffic 'Is Sought. Severity of all types of competition, such aa trucks, busses, family automobiles and pipe lines transporting oil and gas are forcing the railroads to seek traffic in smaller but regular amounts, he said. Here is the point of egress for the forwarding company, controlled indirectly by the railroad, for the traffic is encouraged .to flow thru channels provided by favorable rates. Not the line itself, but its quotes theae rates, Is Legitimate Organization. Properly managed, the forwarding company is a legitimate organization. It originally was formed to take advantage of the universal practice among railroads of charging a higher rate for shipment of leas than a carload lot than would be charged for transportation of the same quantity it it were a part of a carload. Then several shippers, each with a small consignment of goods, jatron- ized the forwarding agent who had quoted a price cheaper than tha rate aet by the rail concern on less than carload lots. Not being public carriers, these companies are exempt from public control of their service prices. Students Build Glider. CRESTON, Feb. 21.
