Mason City will have a doubtful honor Friday night--provided that the Mohawks spill Waterloo East when the- Orange team invades the local basketball court for an 8 o'clock game. The Mohawks may be able to beat the undefeated league leaders--but i£ they do, they'll likely succeed in pushing another team into first place in the Big Four conference. Of course, that will mean that the Mason Cityans will have second notch to themselves in the circuit. If Mason City can defeat Waterloo East, Waterloo West is likely to defeat Fort Dodge and share the top berth of the league with its local rival. And of course, if Mason City loses to Waterloo East, and the favorite West team comes through over Fort Dodge, there will be no change in the standings. If Mason City should lose while Fort Dodgi wins, however, the Mohawki, would be dumped right down to the bottom of the ladder to keep the Dodgers company. Shaking up his lineup again Coach J. A. "Judge" Grimsley announced Thursday that he intended to start Jack Wallace Leland Huff, Howard Gorman Wayne Wood and Everett Fletcher in Friday night's game--provided that Fletcher's badly sprained thumb, which he jammed into a ball at practice Wednesday, gels into shape for use. Huff and Wallace would hold the forward iobs with Gorman nt center and Wooc and Fletcher at guard in th combination.

WINNIE EARNS PISTOL HONOR Mason City Expert lo Get Medal After Shooting 264 for Record. WASHINGTON--W. K. Winnie of Mason City, Iowa, has been awarded the medal of expert pistol shot in the qualification courses conducted by the National Rifle association, according to an announcement made at the headquarters of that group here. This rating is the highest award attainable in any one year, and is second only to the rating of distinguished pistol shot, which is achieved after three years rating as an expert. These qualification tests are carried on under the supervision of the N. R. A. as a measure ot the marksmanship ability of the shooters throughout the country.

Wednesday night, edging out Diamond Bread 24 to 22 to earn a clear claim to first place, at the same time shoving the Bakers into a second place tic with Marshall and Swift. Largely responsible for the Bul- termakers' showing was Phi] "Pop" Thurtle, former University of Iowa gridder, who scored six fieldgoals and two free throws io pare his learn to victory. Corn Country's winning basket, however, was tipped in by Jim Anderson, pivotrnan for the league lead- I ers. j Bakers Weaken Late. Mickey MacDonakl, center foi Ihe Bakers, led a Diamond Bread offense which weakened consid- crably in the last quarter, scoring a trio of fieldgoals and three more charity shots. * Marshall and Swifl's powerhouse swamped Pabst 56 lo 18 in retaining a clutch on the runnerup position with Diamond Bread. Every Cleaner scored at least twice from the field, the ringleaders o the savage offense were Pal Ryan who bucketed nine fieldgoals; Cec Connelly, good for seven from th field; and Gene Hawks, credited with six more. Hold Cleaners Down. . After holding the Cleaners to a 10 to 10 score at the quarter the hapless Brewers saw their oppon ents draw out in front with a furious attack which put them 40 ti 12 ahead, and from there on i was a simple victory for the Cleaners. Hamilton's cagers suffered the! third successive defeat and re maincd cellar tenants as Decker' won a 30 lo 24 game, with .lohnnj Carroll and Harry Rholl cad scoring eight points for the win ners.

Jack Goes South as Wife Has Operation MIAMI BEACH, Fla., (UP) -Mrs. Hannah Williams Dempsey, wife of Jack Dempsey, underwent an appendicitis operation Wednesday at St: Francis hospital. Dr. H. D.

While most clubs get a minor guarantee from interests in the cities where they train, only live ire understood to have received ubstantial advances this season. They are the Giants and St. Louis Cardinals in the National league, md the New York Yankees, Phil- idclphia Athletics and Detroit Ti- lers in the American. iUost Lose Money, Despite the guarantees, most .earns figure lo lose money on the trips. The Giants estimate their deficit will be around $20,000, in spite of perhaps the largest guarantee of the season. They were induced to go to Havana by a Cuban brewer, who already has deposited their advance in a New York bank. Tlic Cincinnati Reds are turning down a guarantee from Puerto Rican interests to return to Tampa. The Reds have a contract to go to the island, but General Manager Warren Giles already iias taken steps to break it. The greatest innovation of the training season is the Athletics' trip all the way lo Mexico City. Schedule Cut Down. Their schedule of spring games has been greatly curtailed, but their guarantee should make up for this. The Cards also have changed camps to improve the state of the exchequer, shifting from Bradenton, FJa., to Daytona Beach because of greater financial inducements. President Sam Brearion preferred Ihc calm Bradcnton weather to the wind of the east coast, but decided to make the change anyway. Receipts of teams training on the Pacific coast this year are expected to be larger, because the coast league has abandoned its rule against playing major league teams. Yanks in Texas. The Yankees are playing Texas league teams again this spring because the Texas league has stopped pegging the gate receipts split at SO per cent. Though a split is the usual agreement, the Yanks have received as high as 80 pe cent. The Tigers will return to Lakeland, Fla. Players will not receive their first 1937 checks u n t i l around May 1, but they will live well, nevertheless. The Giants, for example, pay all food checks or give each player S4.50 a day lo pay his own. Sport Head to Seek Jim, Joe to Sign Pacts Chicago Backers Asking lo Close Deal for Tussle Within Few Days. CHICAGO, ( U P ) -- C h a i r m a n Joe Triner of the Illinois athletic commission has requested Champion James J, Braddock and Joe Louis lo appear before the commission Feb. 18 or 19 to sign articles for a title fight here next summer.
