BASEBALL Des Moines Western league club will oppose Mason City semipro team in opening games of schedule, carded for April 28, 29. "BASEBALL Mason City high school baseball schedule wiU open April 6 at local diamond. Shettield will be first of opposing teams. Out of the PRESSBOX i2i WEDNESDAY^ MARCH 28, 1934 _ -- ~ .^,^ -^ NATIONAL LOOP LEADS IN VICTORIES By AI. MITCHELL- GeHogether Says Chairman Ray B. Pauley of the Y. M. C. A. sports committee, "Trophies and medals will be awarded to the respective winners and an outline for some of the spring sports will be made" at the Y. M. C. A. spring sports get- together. The roundup of sportsmen ·will take place at 6:30 o'clock Thursday evening in the Y. M. C. A. banquet 'room. Reservations were to be com- .pleted Wednesday night. 4 * * One of the spring sports plans that will be discussed will likely be that for a businessmen's Softball league. The loop would be a twilight affair, and would use' the 14 inch, bill and the 45 foot diamond. Central schoolgrounds would be the location of its games . . . Ted Olson may have something to say about it. » * » Softball batterymen who will take part in league games of this summer will bo given a chance to work out in the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium soon, according to plans which will be announced at the meeting. The pitchers and catchers will : be expected io furnish their own equipment, but need not be "Y" members. Long Distance · Congratulations from a long distance came to the Iowa Wesleyan basketball team of this season, after a successful season in the Iowa conference. By radio, from Little America, Prof. Thomas Poulter of the Byrd expedition, who has taken ·command of the base camp during Admiral Byrd's lonely vigil at his ·weather station, sent his praises. * * * ' Coach Glen A. Bingham received the message-- "Congratulations to you and basketball squad for your swell showing and record this year. I am going to give the boys hefe my glass blowing demonstration. The usual closings and regards ,_Tom." - Making Changes . ''· Dr. F. C. Allen, the "Phog" of the University of Kansas, and one of the middlewest's best college bas- -ketball coaches, has suggested that t^tJiC'game,of-basketball come in for -Bbme pruning and revision during ·'-the next season. ',. f V f George Keogan, Notre Dame coach, objected strenuously to the proposals when they were made, but that didn't keep Allen from publishing them. Keogan "ran true to form as a perennial objector on basketball rules," he said. In addition, the Kansan stated his belief that there "is nothing wrong with the game, but there is nothing sacred about the rules and it is not thinkable that an improvement cannot be made upon anything." C * f Allen listed eight changes: 1. Raise the baskets to a height of 12 feet. ' 2. Increase the court width from · 60 to 56 feet. 3. Move the backboards from 4 to 6 feet inside the end line. 4. Increase the fieldgoal to 3 points, leaving the free throw at 1. 5 Prohibit the "post" player from shooting at the basket while 'in the free throw lane -with his back to the goal, but allow him to handle the ball in the area, with, the three- aecond restriction. 6. Take no time out for substitutions in the last minute of each period. 7. Make the minimum circumfer- «nce of the basket 29% inches. S. Make efforts to eliminate - booing at games. Locally there probably wouldn't be much objection to any of those changes excepting the fifth, presuming that Mason City will have a slow-breaking team for the next two years or so, a team that will depend on a tall center working under the basket, and using the double threat of setting up goals for cutin plays or pivoting for an attempt of his own. CUBS, PIRATES IN TOP RANK, TERRY NINE STANDS HIGH Only 12 Decisions in 32 Go to American Leaguers During Spring. NEW YORK, March 28. LTI--Na- tional league clubs steadily are pulling away from their American league rivals in the annual "grapefruit league" competition In the south and far west. Thirty-two games have been played so far and the National, led by the Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Giants, has won 20 of them. Of the decisions that have gone to the American league's credit, the New York Yankees and St. Louis Browns have accounted for 7. Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics, like the Browns, have won 3 engagements from teams in John Heydler'a loop, but likewise have dropped 8. The Cubs and Pirates, all square in their private spring duel with two victories apiece,- have picked on the Chicago White Sox, only American league team training in the far west, to the extent of 5 triumphs and no defeats. The Cubs have whipped their home-town rivals 3 times in a row while the Pirates are credited with 2 verdicts over Lew Fonseca's men. The world champion Giants, although they've got no better than an even break in 16 exhibition games so far, have out- pointed American league teams by a margin of G victories to 4. In the American league, only the Yankees, with 4 decisions over the Boston Braves in G starts, and the Browns, who won the odd game in a five-game series with the Giants, have gained better than an even split in their, inter-league engagements. The St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds and Brooklyn Dodgers, as well as the Cubs, Pirates and Giants, all have given more than they have received in their tussles with the American leaguers. Joins TUESDAY'S GAMES Two north lov.'ans honored by selection on the I. D. P. A. all- state basketball squads are pictured here. Dobbs of Charles City and Dean Holdiman of Dunkerton were chosen at forward and center on the second team. Playing a highly improved game as compared to that he turned in a year ago, Holdiman caged 228 points in a 17 game schedule this season, besides playing a strong defensive game. LOMBARD! EARNS CHANCE TO HOLD REDS' MITT JOB Clark's Sore Arm Returns to Slash Effectiveness of Veteran Terryman. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW ORLEANS, March 28.-paying second base for the Cleveland Indians in their 0 to 3 triumph over Washington yesterday was Eddie Moore, former Pirate and lately of the New Orleans Pelicans. "How would- you like to play for the Indians awhile?" asked General Manager Billy Evans. , "What do you mean, awhile: Moore retorted. "If you put a Cleveland uniform on me you'll have to cut it off." REDS TAMPA, Fla.--Ernie Lombardi seems destined to do a lot of catching for the Cincinnati Reds this season, despite what plans Manager Bob O'Farrell might have had. O'Farrell had intended to do most of the back-stopping, but the big Italian has been walloping the ball so hard and performing behind the plate so well that the player- manager has changed his mind. GIANTS MIAMI BEACH, Fla.-Bill Terry has about given up hope that William Watson Clark, veteran left- hander will be of much assistance to the New York Giants this season. Clark, troubled by an arm injury last year, thought the fault had been cured during the winter. But he's been having trouble with it almost since training began.

He plans to use Johnny Frederick, Ralph Boyle, Danny Taylor and Len Koenecke as regulars ana Boyle, Taylor and Koenecke all are speed merchants. CUBS LOS ANGELES--Injuries and ailments of Woody English and Stanley Hack, may give Rookie Galan an opportunity to open the National league season as the Chicago Cubs third baseman. Galan has done well, except for a little uncertainty m throwing to first base. WHITE SOX LOS ANGELES--Chicago's White Sox are wondering what has become of the spell they used to exercise over the Cubs. The Sox won S out of 9 games played with the home rivals, prior to this spring. Since then they have taken three straight beatings. The Cubs triumphed yesterday, but the Sox; were back to try it again. BRAVES ST PETERSBURG, Fla.--Manager Bil MclKenchnie was perusing the Boston Braves' vital statistics today, checking how many of his Ditching staff would celebrate birthdays during the baseball season. Clarence Pickrel, Rookie hurier from the Harrisburg farm, observed his twenty-second natal day yesterday by shutting out the New York Yankees 6-0, the first whitewash the Yanks ever suffered in their St. Petersburg training camp.

By ALAN GOULD Associated Press Sports Writer WINTER HAVEN, Fla., _ March 2g. ( t Tt--Among other worries, the Phillies for years have seldom come through the spring training session without some infield problems to olve Just when it looked this year s though the club's aggressive new jilot Jimmy Wilson, had this an- icnt jinx on the run, it bobbed up gain'in the form of the spiking ot Dick Bartell, star shortstop, cap ain and sparkplug of the team. Bartell was hurt so seriously ew days ago he may no\ recover in imc to be in the opening game line- p April 17. This puts Wilson up gainst a problem in reserves al- eacly acute. Lou Chiozza, promis r\K Memphis recruit, is filling- in for Bartell but the club will be in a bai way if the rest of the infield doesn come through. At present, Don Hurst, slugging first baseman, i- the only veteran. Counting on Help. Wilson had been counting upon Bartell'a help in developing Marty Hopkins at third, and Irvine Jet- fries at second. This pair came up well recommended from St. Paul, but they have not set the grapefruit belt on fire. Hopkins, a smart fielder, has shown little confidence at the plate. Jeffries only lately has begun to justify the expectations erected around his American association batting mark of .3'13. The catcher-manager's chief reliance in the forthcoming Nationa league race is placed in his owi ability to develop better pitching from a staff which was a big dis appointment in 1933 and has only one real addition so far, Curtis Davis. This rangy righthander won 20 games in "AA" company with San Francisco last year and looks to be ready to deliver.

(UP)--Seventeen De Molay basketball teams will meet in the state tournament of tlieir order tomorrow, and by Saturday night a new champion will have been selected to succeed Davenport, last year's titleholder. Davenport did not enter a team this year. Five games will be played tomorrow, two in the afternoon and three at night. Marion and Keokuk will meet in the afternoon game, and he winner will play Muscatine Friday afternoon. Carroll plays Centerville at 4:10 p. m. Boone Masons and De Molays are offering trophies to the teams which finish in the first four places. A sportmanship placque will be awarded by the Boone chamber of commerce. All teams but Marion and Keokuk drew first round byes. The Carroll- Centerville game will be in the second round. Other second round pairings are: Audubon vs. Boone: Corydon vs. Des Moines; Grinnel! vs. Jefferson; Keokuk-Marion winner vs. Muscatine; Ottumwa vs. Perry; Spencer vs. Valley Junction, and Washington vs. Webster City. Vets, youngsters Help. With further service from such veterans as Jumbo Jim Elliott ana Phil Collins, besides the development of younger but experienced flingers like Ed Holley, Snipe Hansen, Austin Moore, Frank Pearce and Reg Grabowski, it is Wilsons hope that he will perhaps lift the club a notch in the race. The Phillies finished seventh last year, following which they were obliged to sell their champion hitter Chuck Klein, to the Chicago Cubs for 5125,000 to escape the financial shoals. Prior to that Tlurd Baseman Pinky Whitney and Outfielder Hal Lee had been traded to the Braves. Finally, Catcher Virgil Davis was swapped for Wilson, who replaced Burt Shotton. The net result is a. real job of re construction for Wilson.
