BASKETBALL Â· Â· Â· Â·Â· Â· . Â· -.City championship rests between Billman's Transfers and Diamond Bread. Final contest to be-at Y. M. C. A. Tuesday at 8:15. BASKETBALL Â» Â« Â· Â· Â· * Â· Â· Â· Meeting of basketball players to arrange postseason play at "Y" will be held Tuesday night after Billman-Baker contest. MONDAY, MARCH 19, 1931 OUT OF THE PRESStfO .^AL MITCHELL**- f ; Wedding Bells Noting in Newsmagazine "Time" the marriage of Mildred Harris Chaplin, former -wife of Charles Chaplin, film and stage comedian, to William P. Fleckenstein, Faribault, Minn., brewer, musical revue producer, and one time professional football player -with "Red" Grange * * s Brings to mind the facts that --it was Mildred Harris Chaplin who took part In the opening night's program of the Mason City walkathon last September. She was traveling through Mason City, from DCS Moines to Minneapolis. * * * Also--Fleckenstein was a University of Iowa football player before he was connected with the Grange .outfit. The former Minne- aotan is well-known to many Mason City .athletes.- His marriage took place in Asheville, N. Car. * * * .Consistency Recently--in writing about the Mason City sectional basketball tournament, to be exact, a comment was made here as to the high percentage of blonds in the Northwood high school rooting section. The reference was prompted by a, friend who made the observation while the writer was watching the basketball games. 41 * C C. H. Dwelle of Northwood has sent a note remindful of the fact tlat the Northwood teams are '"/iking" outfits. Hence, he says, it's only natural that the Norse beauties act as cheer leaders and compose the major portion of the cheering section. * * * The Irish and Scotch are making threats toward supremacy of numbers on Northwood teams for the future, but at present there are still Johnson, "Fat" Lundberg, who is a brother of Gail, now an outstanding freshman; athlete at the University of Iowa, and also Hove, all representatives of the Scandinavian group. * Â« * riving Finish '"'xmgh G l e n n Cunningham ^*o a new indoor mile mark 3^5 at iMadison Square ..Gars, * den Saturday night, there is another story of speed which concerns another ace distance runner. * * * It was of course a great disappointment to track fans when Bill Bonthron, who holds the 1,500 meter record with Cunningham at 3:52.2, turned in 3:57.4 at that distance in the I. C. A. A. A. A. games, even though the slow time was good enough to win the run. * * * Bonthron nipped Gene Venzke in that race, cutting loose in a 300 yard sprint to gain back the advantage of 30 yards that Venzke had taken. In addition to finishing first at 1,500 meters, he kept right on , : running, expecting the judges to check his time at the mile mark, hoping to set a new mile record. * * * The 1,500 meter time was so slow that the judges let the checking go; but unofficial timers caught him at 4:14 for tha mile, * * * The mile is 119.6 yards longer than the 1,500 meter race. Arithmetic shows that Bonthron traveled that distance at a rate of 7.21 yards a second. That's good enough for a 61 second record in the quarter- mile! And it came on top of the 300 yard sprint as Bonthron drove by Venzke. That's a finish. OS AGE TAKES GIRLS' CAGE TOURNEY HIGH SCHOOLS TO ENTER FINALS OF STATE THIS WEEK Aplington W i n s Sheffielc Round Robin in Extra Playing Session. The independent girls' basketball team of Osage won the championship of Northern Iowa and Southern Minnesota by defeating: the Denison girls in the final contest at the Denison clubhouse Sunday evening after having eliminated the Nora Springs girls in the semifina round in the afternoon. The entire contest was featured by close guarding on both teams which resulted in a final score of 9 to 8. Osage started the scoring early in the game and was never behind leading 7 to 2 at the half and 9 to S at the threo-quarter mark. The Denison girls were given several opportunities in the final quarter to tie the score by the free throw route but neither Haddy could connect with the loop. Cookman anc Doering looked best fr the Denison girls while the guarding of McSweeney and Hultman and the offensive work of Gordon wag outstanding for Osage. In the afternoon Osage had little difficulty in putting Nora Springs out of the running with a 22 to 15 defeat; this game had been playec the previous Sunday but had ended in a 17 to 17 tie. Osage led the entire game, mostly due to the scoring of Gordon who collected 19 of her team's 22 points.

TAMPA, Fla., March 19. UP}-Although not overlooking the advantage of plugging the gaps in the varsity lineup this year, in a spirited attempt to climb out of last place in the National league, the Cincinnati Reds also are concentrating on a huge freshman class of ball players, with a view to developing a championship contender by 1936. Upwards of 50 earnest and ambitious athletes have been corralled this spring by the aggressive new ownership of the Reds, headed by Powel Crosley, Jr., the radio magnate; personally directed by a red- leaded dynamo, Larry JIacPhail, and with Bob O'Farrell, long a familiar backstopping figure, as the new manager. "We are sticking pretty much to the tried and tested performers on our roster this year," says O'Farrell, "because our first ambition is :o pull the Reds out of last place. We are strengthened in several positions, notably at second base with Tony Piet and in the outfield, with the addition of Adam Comorosky, both from the Pirates. We mrted with Red Lucas in the deal mt be won only 10 games for the club last year and I believe Dazzy Vance will win more than that for us this season. Old Daz looks to be n great shape. "Meanwhile we are proceeding with plans to build up a young ball club, which by 1936 should be a distinct pennant factor." The Reds already have convinced baseball folk that they have plenty of batting power this year. The whole camp has been going around with its chest out since the Redlegs shellacked the New York Giants in heir first exhibition game. | | VETS AND ROOKIES LIMBER UP FOR ANOTHER PENNANT CHASE EAST PLANS TO CELEBRATE WIN Disappointed Crowd Goes Home as Team Fails to Show Up on Sunday. SIOUX CITY, March 19. W-East Sioux City high school today planned a rousing reception.for its state championship basketball team. The raiders of East high swept to the top of Hawkeye interscholastic circles Saturday night by toppling West Waterloo, 19 to 18. More than 1,000 enthusiasts gathered at the Sioux City gymnasium yesterday but when the players failed to arrive departed in disappointment. Today they promised to be back with more enthusiasm than ever to show their appreciation for the accomplishments of the team. Coach Les Davis' lads played steady, careful basketball to defeat Waterloo. The rangy raiders suc cessfully nursed a scant lead throughout a hectic fourth quarter during which they did not score a point while Waterloo pulled up to within a point of tying the game. "We just clicked," was the reply of the players to questions of how it felt to be the state champions. Consolation honors in the tournament went to George, a little northwest Iowa town, which defeated Burlington 22 to 20 with a great closing scoring rush. STATE MEET CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL E.

Bad News in Store Soon for Young Giant Hurlers Yanks, Red Sox Given Recognition of Senators. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI BEACH, Fla., March 19. --There's bad news in store soon for three of the New York Giants' pitching recruits. Hubbel, Schumacher, Parmelec, Fitzsimmons, Clark, Luque and Bell are the seven regulars leaving Bill Shores, Joe Bowman, AI Smith, Jack Salveson and Clyde Castleman to fight it out for the other two berths. Shores and Bowman seem to have the inside track now. SENATORS BILOXI, Miss.--The Washington Senator's board of strategy is figuring privately that the New York Yankees and the re-made Boston Red Sox are the teams that will offer the Nats the most trouble. Neither Owner Clark Griffith nor Manager Joe Croniti will say this for quotation, but the word is out nevertheless. Both figure that the five games to be played with the Red Sox before the first western swing may give them a pretty good tip. TIGERS LAKELAND, Fla.--Back in training quarters after Sunday's 7 to 5 defeat at the hands of the Boston Red Sox, .the Detroit Tigers studied their own weak points today. Rather glum over the Tigers' defeat by a club managed by their old mentor, Bucky Harris, Manager Mickey Cochrane mapped out a ,veek of intensive training in preparation for Thursday's game with :he Athletics here. CUBS LOS ANGELES--Don Conrads, 21 year old southpaw who was :alked into a trial with the Chicago Cubs by a woman fan from Kewanee, HI., was Manager Charlie Grimm's choice to start a game today against Portland of the Pacific coast league at Ventura. Pitcher Lon Warncke, Roy Joiner ?at Malone and Guy Bush, who hurled in the Cubs' pair of victories over the White Sox Saturday and Sunday, were excused from the 70 mile bus ride to Ventura. PHILLIES WINTER HAVEN. Fla.--Blanked n their first two "Grapefruit .eague" games with major opponents, the Phillies take on the Co- umbus Red Birds today. The Phils got five hits yesterday, while the Cincinnati Reds were winning 3 to 2. That made a total of eight hits in 18 innings for a team which last season placed four men * : [three of Mickey Cochrane's pitch-, 'era. CARDINALS BRADENTON, Fla.--The outfield situation of the Cardinals, which has caused some concern because of the continued refusal of George Watkins and Ernie Orsatti to accept the salary offered them by the club, was brighter today. Col. Buster Mills, the fly chaser' from Rochester, apparently has found the range, and the experts regarded him as a serious contender for a steady job. ATHLETICS FORT MYERS, Fla.--The Philadelphia Athletics fresh from their last scheduled Sunday holiday until the end of the lfl31 season, meet the St. Louis Cardinals today. Tim McKeithan took advantage of the day off to lie on the beach, letting" the sun bake his sore pitching arm, but many of the others were up at 5 o'clock to go fishing. Nashua Boxer Marries in Friday Ceremonies NASHUA, March 19.--Miss Mayrette Nimmers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Nimmers, and Ollie Bork, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Bork, both of Nashua, were married Friday at the German Lutheran parsonage at New Hampton by the -Rev.

McLaren Challenges Wood Choppers of Minnesota to Ax-Swinging Test. MINNEAPOLIS, March 19. ( Paul Bunyan, Minnesota's mythical McLaren, of Australia, who calls himself the world's champion woodchopper. To all those woodsmen who disagree with his opinion of Paul, McLaren has issued a challenge to meet him in a woodcbopping contest at the Northwest Sportsmen's show at the Minneapolis auditorium. March 31 to April 7, when he will endeavor to outdo some of Bunyan's pet tricks with an ax. "Just a Babe." "Paul Bunyan land is it?" McLaren, who is being brought to Minneapolis by the Minnesota Forest Service, said in a letter to C. W. Odskirk, manager of the show. "Say, out in Australia where I won my world's championship at woodchop- ping', Paul is just a babe in arms. "Why we have lumberjacks out there who are so husky they have chipped iii and bought Paul's big blue ox, Babe, and they raise big blue oxen for their kids to ride on. I want to see how some of these lumberjacks of yours can chop wood and I'll meet any or all comers." Just to indicate how tough he is, McLaren says he cut his eye teeth sharpening a double bitted ax on his gums. He is almost 50 years old and claims he is just getting his full growth now. Major Aussie Sport. Although the competitive sport of wood chopping is little known in America, it almost ranks as a major sport in Australia. McLaren was born near Melbourne, Australia, and during his career has won hundreds of contests. He has competed in all the important matches in Australia, and has won two world's championship matches, one at Melbourne and the other at Pert, in western Australia. For several years he has appeared in circuses and vaudeville circuits in America. A prize of S50 is offered to any Minnesota disciple of Bunyan if i McLaren fails to chop through a log in two-thirds the time the challenger takes. YALE MASCOT IS PROBE REVEALS NOTHING Cryptic Note Links Loss of Sacred Bird to Taking of Handsome Dan. NEW HAVEN, Conn., March IB. '(--"Hamburger or fight!' 1 That was embattled Yale's ultimatum today to the dognapers of Handsome Dan II, bulldog mascot symbolic of the Blue's do-or-die spirit. Either the dognapers feed Handsome Dan a pound of choice hamburger daily and deliver him speedily back to Yale--or else. That's what the Yale boys said. Missing Five Days. The dog kidnaper victim has been missing five days now and Yale is getting mad. Especially in view of the fact that Dan is ill of distemper. The vet says he must have, not only his daily hamburger, but plenty of pure water and exercise. Yale, faced by the prospect of a saddened Easter vacation, sent a delegation yosterdivy to the bailiwick of its old foes, Harvard. They couldn't find the dog. Moreover the editors of Lampoon, Harvard funny magazine, raised a cry that the visitors from New Haven had tried to kidnap them for ransom. Probo Rumor. Then the searchers went to Worcester. Mass.. on a rumor the pup had appeared on the farm of Har- Itn T. Picrpont, Sr., whose son is on the staff of the Harvard Lampoon. Nothing doing. The Yales figure they have only on e worthwhile clew. This was a missive purporting to come from the Lampoon. i . "The bulldog or the ibis," It said cryptically. Sacred Bird. The ibis is a sacred stuffed bird. It disappeared two years ago from the Lampoon and hasn't been seen since. One rumor said that Dan was upset by a shakcitp in the Yale football coaching- staff and decided to go away from here. The rumor placed Dan somewhere between. New York and Boston trying to decide whether to follow his old friend Mai Stevens to N. Y. U. or Adam Walsh to Harvard. "That." said Yale, "is crimson herrinjr."
