FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 24 1934 KANSAS BLAZER AT BUTLER RUN Will Meet College Milers in Feature Event of Relay Program in Indiana. INDIANAPOLIS, March 24. (39 ---Glenn Cunningham of Kansas, running: the mile for the first time since he set his indoor record of 4:08.4 a week ago, was to engage Raymond Sears of Butler and several other college milers in the feature event of the second annual Butler university indoor relays. The race tops a program of dashes, hurdles, field events and relay races that has drawn 375 athletes representing 34 colleges and universities and comprising the finest track talent in the middle west. Cunningham also will .run with, the Kansas mile relay team. Other individual stars in tonight's events include Charles Horn- Bostel and Ivan Fuqua, Indiana university runners who will do' their 'iron man' stunt in various relays; Willis Ward, the versatile Michigan Negro sprinter, hurdler and jumper; Randall Herman of Carleton college who may prove the-class of the 60 yard dash since Ralph Metcalfe is injured and unable to compete, and Heye Lambertus, Nebraska hurdler. PRESS BOX (Continued from Sports paie) tire of the new association Is to professionalize the sport. * # * "If there was any one sentiment more pronounced than all others," said Mr. Barnes in referring to the Chicago meeting, "it was that softball should be saved for the ama- .teur. * * . * " "Let's don't make the game so fast that we'll eliminate the middle-aged player,' was a thought expressed numerous times. And we came home to find that the very thing we didn't want done Is the main objective of the organization which grew out of our meeting." . - * * * In a, letter to Fred C. Mains of Newton, director appointed for Iowa .by Philip G. Rosier, national president of the Softball association, Mr. Barnes referred to the financial aspects of the organization work as "a pretty nice racket." * * * "We are going ahead and do our best In our little community to keep this game just like It has been for the past few years, without commercializing or professionalizing the game," lie concluded In his letter to the may enroll by contacting the American Legion post in their community, or grouping together 15 boys of their own and telling the American Legion post they want to play baseball. J .'.-- - Jtewton ^ Whether the thing that is being 3 ' done is right or wrong doesn't eliminate the fact that it- is being done ' without authority from the meeting out of which the association was born. * * * Some pretty careful consideration of the whole situation suggests itself. The future of a game which has brought exercise and recreation to thon- : sands in the past few years may be in the balance. NEWSPAPERS WILL BACK LEGION BALL " (Continued from Sports Page) been decided, the six winners will compete in an eastern sectional and western sectional to determine the , two representative teams that will i meet in the junior world series the first of September. ' ; 500,000 Will Flay. j Mr. Gook said American Legion junior baseball was inaugurated in 1926 with 75,000 boys participating. "It has each year continued to attract a great number of American youth and with the plan of promo^' tion this year, an excess of 500,000 'boys should be playing," he continued. "The American Legion is not primarily interested in: this activity to make great baseball players of the boys, worthy as that profession may be and pleased as we might be in seeing . a boy become proficient in baseball. Our interest is in the good sportsmanship training they receive while playing the game. Baseball is a laboratory of good citizenship. It is there the boy is taught to observe rules, co-operate with his teammates, become democratic, and learn 'the many fine principles that go toward making a good citizen." Athletic Officer Supervises. The details of the competition whereby the championship of a town, county or city is determined, then finally the state, are under the supervision of the state athletic officer of the Legion. The higher com- 1 petition, following the state tourna- i orient, is conducted by the national organization of the Legion. Announcements of various cities and dates for the tournaments will be made soon. All boys desiring to play baseball JNO. F. CLARK CO. Chicago - "ew Tork - New Orleans 325 I. O. F. Bldg.

Inability of George "Mule" Haas to get into condition added to Fonseca's worries, for the former athletic star was forced to leave Spring Camp and go to Arkansas to undergo treatment for rheumatism. JNO. F. CLARK AND CO. MARKET INFORMATION 325 1. O. F. Bldg. Phone 845 March 24.-Prices were moderately higher ID quiet week-end trading. Sentiment generally appeared milch Improved after advices from Washington stated that it appears likely that major labor disputes wiil be settled by the administration, A strengthening tone in commodity markets reflected brighter sentiment. A cautious note, however, is apparent In trading quarters with the immediate outlook somewhat clouded by the class of extremely complex forces at Washington. Business confidence has received a severe shock from the acute labor crisis which threatens to disturb Industrial relations. A pause in the upward trend of the steel industry is apparent and is generaliy attributed to growing caution on the part of Industry resulting from labor conditions. On the probability that a general strike In the automobile plants will be averted at this time sentiment has been strengthened regarding the markets early outlook.
