FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 4 ·§ 1937 ·GAZETTE SPORTS S NO ACTION FOR FIGHT IS MADE All Hands Marking Time as Free-for-All Feud Is on Over Braddock. NEW YORK, W--What started out as a proposal for a Jim Braddock-Joe Louis h e a v y w e i g h t championship fight in Chicago, looked very much like a frce-loi- all feud between- promoters and managers of the principals Thursday, while all hands marked time on the proposition. In New York, Madison Square Garden Promoter Jimmy Johnston and Braddoclv's manager, Joe Gould, long have been in the name-calling stage. Now, "in Chicago, Lewis' managers have taken to berating Mike Jacobs, who promotes the Brown Bomber's battles. Meantime, the $500,000 offer from Sheldon Clark, Chicago spr. tsman, for Braddock to defend his crown against Louis at Soldiers' field in June was waiting for signatures. Gould was due in Chicago some time this week, as . he explained, to sign the papers, but Jacobs, who has Louis under contract, planned a more waiting game. Gould was scheduled to ask the New York state athletic commission Wednesday for return of the 55,000 forfeit Braddock posted as evidence of his intention to 'fight -Max Schmeling for the championship in Madison Square Garden's bowl on June 3. The shrewd pilot' of the titleholder did not appear, however, and left everyone guessing as to his intentions. Purdue Looks Back on Twin Cage Loss CHICAGO, (/?)--For the first time in. a long while Purdue's Boilermakers looked back on two consecutive basketball defeats. The co-defenders with Indiana of the Big Ten title who dropped a one point decision to Illinois nearly three weeks ago in their last previous' start, took a 47 to 40 beating from Notre Dame's rejuvenated Irish at South Bend Wednesday night. Notre Dame held Jewell Young, Purdue's Big Ten individual scoring leader, to eight points while its own star, Johnny Moir, led the victorious attack with 15 points. Marion Miley, Lexington, Ky., won a lopsided 9 and 8 score from Mrs. Jake L. Hamon of Dallas Tex.

Carrie Jacobs Bond Here's Simple Way to Ease a Cold Two Bayer Aspirin Tablets--A Full Glass of Water-That's All The modern way to ease a cold is this: Two Bayer Aspirin tablets the moment you feel a. cold coming on. Then repeat, if necessary, according to instructions in the bos. At the same time, if you have a sore, throat, crush and dissolve three BAYER tablets in one-third glass of water. And gargle with this mixture twice. The Bayer Aspirin you take internally will act to combat fever, and pains which usually accompany colds. The gargle will act as a medicinal gargle to provide, almost instant relief from rawness and pain, It is really marvelous; for it acts like . a local anesthetic on the irri- tatcd membrane of your throat. Try this way. Your doctor, we know, will endorse it. For it is a quick, effective means of combating a cold. Ask for Bayer Aspirin by the full name at your druggist's-- not for "aspirin" alone.

Manufactured to Improve Interiors of Homes The finished floors of a house are most important to its general appearance and therefore should be given serious consideration. There are many materials from which to choose, and each has its virtues. The difficult thing is to be. sure the finish selected is appropriate not only to. the use of the room in which it is to be put- but also to the cost of the balance of the finish of the room. Obviously an expensive, random width teak-wood plank flooring would be out of place in a simple room of- an inexpensive house, and a flat-grained narrow flooring of cheap · wood would spoil a handsomely paneled and elaborately furnished room. Consistency in selecting the materials to be used is essential to a properly balanced house. Many materials are being used now in countless ways for flooring;-linoleum, once confined to the kitchen, has made its bow as a floor covering in the living rooms and bedrooms of well-appointed houses; composition materials of various types in the form of tiles also are used; even brick has made its way into the halls and living rooms of houses with success. But all- the materials, both the new as well as the more conventional ones, must be used with judgment and a sense of their fitness for each particular room. Gullickson Funeral Is Held at Ridgeway RIDGEWAY--Funeral services for Theodore Gullickson, who died at his home early Tuesday after an illness of 27 days, were held at the home and at the Lincoln Lutheran church- Thursday afternoon with the Rev.

Sime of Ridgeway, Bessie of Charles City and Ruby at home, five grandchildren, Muriel, Donold Wayne and Doris Jean, children of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Brekke, and Ethel Frances and Alan Theodore, children of Mr. and Mrs. Ole Brekke, one brother Alfred Gullickson of Cartwright, N. Dak., and two sisters, Miss Julia Gullickson and Mrs. C. A. Jacobson, both of Alexander, N Dak. · Lighting Helpful in Merchandising Goods Modern merchants have discovered that the adequate lighting ot their" establishments is essential for successful merchandising results. Through its means the entire sales area of the store may be utilized, and increased sales with consequent profits should result. Private financial institutions approved by the Federal Housing administration advance insured credit for the installation of modern wiring with supplementary fixtures. Badly Worn Floors Should Be Replaced . Old, worn-out wood floors are hardly worth the care they require to keep them looking reasonably presentable. When they have reached the stage where there are badly worn depressions in front of doorways, or where the grain has begun to splinter, or when the cracks between the boards are so wide they cannot be decently "illed, then a new floor should be aid. The new wood floors may be jsed as the finish or as the base for lineoleums or various types of composition tiles. Go to Minneapolis. MANLY--Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Hovell accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Jake Douglas on a trip to Minneapolis. NOHTH JOWA'S BEST THEATRE vHHP ENDS THURS. KAY FRANCIS in "STOLEN HOLIDAY" At last!
