MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 10 1936 NINE SECTIONAL TOURNAMENTS DRAW HOOPERS By Al Mitchell Out of the Pressbox ATHLETIC PARALLEL THE ATHLETIC fortunes o Austin, Minn., high school and Ma son City high school have been a an odd parallel during recent sen sons . . . last year, the Scarlet, won the Minnesota prep basketbal title on the same night that the Mo hawks won theirs . . . in the fall both schools had championship foot ball team's . . . during the curren winter, they split two basketbal games. * * * LAST SATURDAY night, Albert Lea's Tigers met the Scarlets in the final game of the district basketbal tournament.. . . and defeated Austin 17 to 16. Here's hoping that the parllael extends no further! · * * * PETE STUCK IT OUT MAYBE YOU wondered why big Pete Kalinich, Waterloo East's star guard, was so badly slowed up when the Trojans played at Mason City last week . . . at times he appeared to be limping painfully. The lower arch of his right foot was broken in the first minute of play . . . an old injury. He stuck it out for the whole game. The break needs complete rest to heal quickly . . . bul Pete is delivery boy for his family's grocery store . . . and has to do considerable walking. Whether he'll be ready for the sectional tournament is a problem. * * * HOME-FLOOR EXPERTS THE UNIVERSITY of Iowa has one of the best home court basketball records of any school in the conference. Since December, 1932, the Hawkeyes have won 31 games .and lost 12 for a .721 average. The Hawkeyes took five out of six home games in both 1933 and 1934. Mich igan is the most difficult foe at home for Iowa, the Wolverines having taken three of four games at Iowa City in the last four years. Odds and Ends . . . CLIFF HATHAWAY, w h 0 started as an outfielder . . . his old high school job . . . when he reported to a Los Angeles baseball school this spring, is being given a chance at third base. He has the arm for the spot . . . and apparently is getting the knack of handling ah infield position where they come hot . . . Seven million people see basketball games in Indiana during- a.' season, says Purdue's coach, Ward Lambert . . . You never have seen a picture of Helen Wills Moody playing golf because she doesn't play . . . The name of Di i Maggio, loudly heralded Yank out) field rookie, somehow suggests' he might be a little fellow, but Joe is six feet tall. * * * Race horses with tender feet sometimes are kept in shape for the races by swimming . . . Dave Burke, 21 year old Marquette Negro who jumped 6 feet 8 5-16 inches in the recent national A. A. U. indoor championships in New York, is nicknamed "Dark Angel" . . . They say the reason why Fred Marberry decided to become a pitcher again after putting in part ,of a season as umpire, is that he ' discovered as an umpire that any ' number of major league hurlers iwere getting by without much stuff . . . Famous also rans: Discovery, Glenn Cunningham. One of the smallest men ever to play major league baseball (if he plays) is Pat Ankenman, recruit infielder of the Cardinals who is five-feet-four . . . Sparky Adams was a half inch taller . . . Miller Huggins was the same height as Pat . . . but Hug looked taller than that to Babe Ruth a couple of times . . . Sleepless nights, caused by worry over examinations at University of Iowa, are said to have sapped Glenn Cunningham's strength. MASON CITY HAS TOUGHEST JOB IN STATE TOURNEYS Mohawks Must Defend Hon ors in Sectional Meet Here Thursday Evening. By STAFF WRITER Eight hundred and more high schools, more than S.OOO high schoo basketball players, will start Thursday in the No. 1 prep athletic event of Iowa, the state basketball tournament. Play, which will lead to the Drake fieldhouse at Des Moines, where the championship will be decided on March 28 will open in 45 sectional tournament centers Thursday, and 90 champions, leaders in Class A and Class B. will remain in the race when the sectional meets have run their course, next Saturday evening. Mason City high school must defend its state championship, won last season at Cedar Falls, against such a mob of athletic -stars as that--and there's only a slim hope that the Mohawks can do the trick. History o£ Iowa basketball shows how nearly impossible it is to win consecutive state championships. Davenport has done it, and on two different occasions--but the Blue Devils stand alone. Open Against Garner. Chief concern of the Mohawks will be sectional tournament competition on their home court, starting Thursday evening at 9:20 as they meet Garner high school. Gamer, incidentally, kept the Mason Cityans from going to the district tournament in 1931. This was the last time the Mohawks were defeated in a preliminary tourna^ ment. In 1932-35 they made four consecutive trips to the final session of the state meet, two to Des Moines and two to Cedar Falls. Only one other team in the state has done as well. Roosevelt's Roughriders of Des Moines went for four consecutive years, % with Marcellus McMichael, now a star at Northwestern as a sophomore, appearing in each tournament. Ray Barr, Mason City captain of last season, and McMichael are two of the few cag- ers who have appeared in four final sessions in Iowa. Guess Your Own. You can have your own guess on who's going^to win^in_either_Class B,"which starts its round~~at 1 o'clock Thursday afternoon or Class A, which gets under way Thursday evening, at the local tournament. Class B is full of dependable outfits but short on star teams--the only champion in the list is Nora Springs, Floyd county title winner, although Mitchell high school, lower bracket team, has won 15 games nnd gone undefeated in its regular season this year. In Class A, you can choose from three champion .teams when you're licking winners. St. Ansgar, nnde- 'eated in 18 games against North Iowa teams, is Mitchell county champion, and a favorite, high-roll- -ig veteran outfit. Clear Lake is \ T orth Iowa conference champion, has lost three games this season, and Mason City is the defending Iowa titleholder, as well as current Big Four leader.

Mickey Cigar Stores DJ THE HOTEL HANFORD Mason City, Iowa Clarion to Wrestle With Cresco Club, Arrange Go Against Purple Varsity CLARION--The Clarion Athletic club will wrestle with the Cresco team in a dual meet there Wednesday. The Clarion club, coached by N. B. Anderson, is undefeated so far this season. Arrangements are being made for a dual meet with the Cornell regulars within a short time. If the plan is carried out, it will bring together two national champions in the 135 pound weight, Dale Brand of Cornell and Lyle Morford of Clarion. Both boys are A. A. U. champions and have won national honors. Morford was on the Olympic squad in 1932, and Brand is a strong candidate for the Olympic team 'this year. Brand is a former Fort Dodge high school champion. New York Giants Have Hot Flag Chance--"If" Mrs. Dizzy Takes Middle of Stage in Major Drama 'It's Their Fault" "It's Iheir f.itill," says Dizzy Dean, NO. l holdout in major league baseball's early season, "Branch Rickey started this thing and now he can finish it." Handy Boys to Get Jobs Fight-Maker Holds Own Ring Tests. Card Pitcher's Wife Must Give Okay to Contract. BRANDENTON. FJa.. m--The Dizzy Dean holdout situation became so acute Tuesday that Mrs. Dizzy personally assumed command of future maneuvers. "Ill be right there when and if Dizzy goes to sign and I'll give him the O. K. before he sets his name down," said Mrs. Diz. "And furthermore, if they make him 'sit out' this season, it'll cost them double. The Cardinals will have to come through with this year's back pay before he'll sign for 1937." "That's right," put in Dizzy, "we will fix 'em." Not a Single Ball. The Deans (Mr. and Mrs.), still insist Jerome Herman will not so much as throw a ball for the Cardinals unless he is paid ?40.000 for the year's work. "It's their own fault," said Dizzy. "Branch Rickey (vice president of the club), started this thing and now he can finish it. "Last fall when President Sam Brcadon asked me to sign, I asked him for a raise. Rickey came into the room and Breadon told him I was no piker when it came to salary demands. "Rickey said, 'Babe Ruth held out for SSO.OOQ: Dizzy ought to hold out for half that anyway.' So I said 'all right gents, MO.OOO is my price.' And it is. Can Voti Tie That? "Last year I was paid $18,500. Rickey wanted to give me the same salary. He said: 'In 1934 you won 30 ball games and we gave you a nice raise, Last year you won 28, so we're going to give you a break. We're going to pay you the same money we paid you for winning 30 game's.' Can you tie that?" ·* As for brother Paul's difficulties with the. Cardinals, Dizzy says he knows nothing. "What I do know is that without me and Paul the Cards will finish in the second division," he said. Mrs. Dean said Dizzy has a radio offer and also can go 'to work selling furniture at 525,000 a year.

By PAUL MICKELSON Associated Press Sports Writer. PENSACOLA, Fla., (IP)--The answer to the New York Giant pennant chances is a succession of "it's." If Bill Terry can play first base regularly . . . if Sam Leslie can replace him effectively should a bad knee keep Terry on the sidelines . . if Burgess Whitehead can go at full steam at second for an entire season. . . . if Fred Fitzsimmons' arm is right again, and if Hank Leibcr doesn't remain a holdout--then you can bet your rent money that the Giants will be guests from flag fall to finish in the National league race. They still can be hot contenders if one or two of their problem ball players have just a fair season but too many defects probably will cause them to do another fold-up act for the third straight year. Terry's job resembles that of the vacationer who patches up the old family bus with a couple of new parts for a trans-continental trip. Pitching Big Problem. Pitching, an almost inexhaustible product three years ago when Terry took the steering gear and drove the Giants to a world's championship, is the biggest problem. Carl Hiibbcll, Hal Schumacher and Cly- dcll castleman, who between them captured 67 of 91 games won last season, are certain quantities for 1936. The other seven, among them Fitzsimmons whose arm was operated upon for a chipped bone last year, are big question marks. Terry is optimistic over Harry Gumbert, who won 20 and lost 10 last season for Baltimore, and is counting on him to round out the "Big Four." If Fitzsimmons comes through, together with Al Smith, winner of 10 and loser of eight in 35, Terry will have one of the finest mound staffs in the game. Howard Sipler, a husky right hander obtained from Richmond of the Piedmont league, also has impressed Terry. Fred Marberry, erstwhile umpire, is strictly a gamble, but if he can save pitchers like Hubbcll from relief duty, he'll be worth his .veight in gold to Terry. InfieiH is Ready. With Whitehead at second, Terry believes he has solved his infield problem, one of the reasons he assigns for two successive Giant fold- ups. Of course, Travis Jackson and his wobbly knees is another question mark at third b u t ' t h e ever reliable Mark Koenig can give him the rest he needs. Dick Bartell at shortstop, Terry or Leslie at first complete the inner defense. Probabilities are that Terry and Jackson will hold down their posts with Leslie and Koenig serving utility rolls. If Lieber remains a holdout, the iants would lose considerable punch. Leiber hit .331 and was one of the most improved players in baseball last year. Taking it for ranted that he will sign, Terry's outfield worries are over with Mell Ott in right, Joe Moore in left, Leiber in center and George Davis and Jim Ripple bringing up the re- ;erve.

SKEU.EV Associated Press Spnrts Writer DES MOINES, liP)--Rapid-fire action, and lots of it, will occur Thursday when the seventh Iowa district high school basketball teams start the drive for the state title at six sectional centers. Some of the best team.-) in the state arc located out in far western Iowa, and what a time they're going to have selecting the two representatives in the state finals at DCS Moines late this month. Just to name a few of the Class A teams given title consideration there arc Abraham Lincoln of Council Bluffs. Logan, Villisca. Audubon, Thomas Jefferson of Council Bluffs, Harlan. Clarinda, Dcnison and Missouri Valley. Gnod B Team Prospects. The Class B teams with good prospects are Maloy, Elencoc, Hancock, Kirkman. Treynor. Th'urman. and the Iowa School for the Deaf. The most excitement is anticipated at the Harlan sectional. Morry Shadle. Council Bluffs sports editor, sa3's there arc four good Class A teams entered. Logan is the leading pick as a result of M straight victories during the regular season. It is no setup, however, for the flashy Logan club. Audubon, Thomas Jefferson and Harlan are given chances to trip the Logan rush. Hancock has a powerful Class B team entered in the Harlan meet. Hancock lost only once in 20 games, hut faces stiff tournament competition, particularly from Kirkman, a first round foe. Clarinda Still Good Enough. Clarinda. although it isn't as good a team as last year when it went to the state finals only to lose to East Sioux City in the first round, probably will win the Class A honors at Bedford. The team still has Bobby Franklin, the -clever Negro forward, and can make trouble for anyone. Lenox rates an outside chance to halt the Clarinda club. Abraham Lincoln gets first call in the Glenwood Class A, Coach Bill Lyland has more good individual players, and, although they've failed to click effectively, may reach full stride in tournament play. The Iowa School for the Deaf is the "darkhorse" team in Glcnwood's Class B. Thin-man and Treynor are other possibilities. Villisca Tops at Home. Villisca expects to take proper care of its own sectional. The team is built 'around Wally Williams, leading scorer of the Hawkeye Six and has won about 60 per cent of its games. Shenandoah may cause some trouble. Onawa and Missouri Valley are the best in a four-team Class A section at Onawa. It's a tossup between the two leaders. Blencoe looks like a winner in the B class at Onawa. Denison's powerhouse has little opposition in its own sectional. They say there is no team close to Denison until the district tournaments following the sectionals. Ily THE ASSOCIATED I'RESS l.ANC'ASTKtt, I'n,--.I( le Ilusolt, 218.
