DES MOINES, (.-V)--Two more of " the 1935 finalists were on the sidelines Friday wondering; who would take their places as play continued in the eight boys high school district basketball tournaments. As most of the favorites shot ahead to second round contests, Clarinda, perennial contender from southwest Iowa, and McCallsburg:, a class B school, joined nine other 1935 finals competitors, victims of sectional superiority last week, in the also ran class. Clarinda Loses 11) to 13. Clarinda fell before Logan's undefeated club, 19 to 13 at Council Bluffs and McCallsburg went down 27 to 25, under Van Meter's determined bid at Marshalltown. Mason City's 1935 title 'winners continued to pace the parade of favorites in the championship quest. The Mohawks opened district play with a 24 to 15 victory over Estherville on the latter's court. Davenport, another prominent championship entry, got by the tough Iowa City club, 27 to 23, but .faced another strenuous encounter Friday against Burlington, which 'eliminated Tipton Thursday. East Advances Also. East Sioux City, playing in the Estherville tournament and likely opponent of Mason City in the eighth district finals, pushed aside the Cherokee challenge, 34 to 27. Diagonal, most popular of the Class B teams, took things easy in defeating Minburr. 26 to 16 at Creston. District play will he completed Saturday night when 16 teams will ·become eligible for the 1936 finals at Des Moines next week.

Charley Lucas, Australian promoter who has Carroll under contract, told Sam Pian, Ross' manager, in an overseas telephone conversation Thursday, that he would leave for Chicago about April 20 to post $45,000 in a Chicago bank as Ross' guarantee.

One of those I good old-fashioned tea pourings, it I Well, Dizzy always has said he had Austin Team First Round Loser in Meet, West Virginians Win CHICAGO, UW--The more powerful arrays, warmed up by tussels with the lesser, started firing away at each other Friday · as the thirteenth annual national Catholic interscholastic basketball title tournament roared into the second round. With few exceptions, the survivors of first round warfare moved on with little difficulty, and blistering battles were expected Friday. St. Joseph of Funtington, W. Va., eliminated St. Augustine of Austin, Minn., 39 to 17. How can Washington explain the fact that over $300,000.000 of federal road funds are still unspent?

Incidentally, Earl Mack is doing most of the heavy managerial work. The venerable Connie strolls around, thinking up magazine articles and every now and then admonishing: "Don't throw too hard, young man." If they had let Walter Briggs go ahead with his bonus plan for the Tigers it would have cost the Detroit sportsman ?50,000 to see his team win the pennant. Each Tigers would have received considerably more than a month's salary in addition to world's series cuts. The team would have been shooting for more dough than any other in history.

BRADENTON, Fla., (!Pi--Dizzy Dean let it be understood Friday his promise to love, honor and obey the St. Louis Cardinal high command is "out" as far as signing a contract at club terms is concerned. Just as the ace pitcher seemed ready to end his protracted holdout, "Old Diz" talked to President Sam Breadon about his 1936 salary. Breadon named an undisclosed figure. Dizzy promptly balked. Matters apparently stood unchanged--Dizzy wanting $40.000 a year--the Cards offering $18,500. The concensus among training camp observers was that the club will yield a little and Dizzy will sign for about half the sum lie says he is worth. HANSELL PLAYS PLOVER IN GIRLS STATE TOURNEY North Iowa Teams Collide in Second Round of Tournament. SECOND ROUND PAIRINGS Centerville vs. Waterville. Gilman vs. Mallard. , Bode vs. Cumberland. Plover vs. Hansell. DES MOINES, (.'T)--Ccnterville's Rcdettes, a slick little squadron of basketball performers, led eight teams into the second round of the Girls' State high school tournament Friday after a series of startling upsets in the first round. The Redettes, who won the 1935 title without an undo amount of trouble, play Waterville Friday night in their next contest on the trail to their second consecutive Iowa championship. Centerville Wins 29-14. Centerville had no difficulty whipping through the first round, downing Woodward 29 to 14, and rated a top heavy choice over Waterville which defeated Farragut, 21 to 12 in the first rc-.rati. The other favorites were not as fortunate as the Redettes in the first round. Manilla, Seymour and Wellsburg touted as possible champions, dropped Under first round fire. Manilla's previously undefeated team lost to Hansel], 21 to 18; Gilman eliminated Seymour, 31 to 27; and Bode whipped Wellsburg, semi-finalist last year, 20 to 17. Hansell to Play Plover.

By DAVE KAUFMAN No .fighters of championship or near-championship caliber appeared on the American Legion boxing card at the armory Thursday night but the crowd was treated to a pleasing exhibition of slugging, comics and a "ew oddities in the realms of fistiana. Five of the evening's eight scheduled bouts ended by the knockout route as the young scrappers tore at each other from start to finish in the majority of the matches. Curly Harris of Mason City earned a clean-cut decision from Eddy White of the transient camp who once fought out of Atlanta, Ga. Both men in this match, which was booked as the main event, gave a great exhibition of boxing in the opening round with some neat footwork. White took this round by a hair-line margin. Breaks White's Defense. The fans' collective cry for action was appeased in the second stanza as'Harris dented the Georgian's de- 'ense with several telling punches to lake the round by a clear margin. !urly continued his assault as he came out in the third and rushed White furiously, a stiff right cross tarting a nose bleed and sending the ;ransient camper halfway through ,he ropes. White was on his bicycle through most of the final round as Harris played a tattoo first on the Geor- ian's breadbasket and then switch- ng his attack to the head, forcing White to drop his guard and lay limself xvide open for some stiff blows. White was knocked through he strands twice before the fight jnded with the local boy an easy winner. Fritz Scores K. O. Says Steve O'Neill: » « * » * « « « « NEW ORLEANS, La.--"The Cleveland Indians disappointed last season but will be the surprise club of the American league this year. Picked by a majority of the experts to win the pennant, the burden of the responsibility was too great for so young a club It faltered badly under the strain. "This year it is going to be entirely different. No one picks our club better than fourth and that is where the big surprise is coming The Indians will be 25 per cent better than last year and I am hopeful that improvement will be good enough to win. Pitching is the asset that wins pennants and we are going to get much imorovcd hurling. * "There is no reason why Johnny Allen should not win 20 ball games. George Blaeholder should win 12 or more. Those 32 games I am anticipating from the two new members of the staff should mean a pennant for Cleveland."

Elmer Fritz, who played with the Holy Family football team a few years ago, made his ring debut in sensational stylfi in the semiwindup, scoring a sensational second-round knockout. Leo O'Gorman, the prospective victim, gave Fritz a good battle, giving blow for blow in the initial chukker although he lost the round by virtue of a knockodwn. The northsider ended the fight 1 minute and 10 seconds after the second round had opened as he landed a potent left to O'Gorman's beak, starting a crimson flow and ending, temporarily at least, O'Gorman's pugilistic ambitions. Whoever termed George Kavaya the "fighting Serbian" must have been in a joking mood for the Serbian did everything but fight in bis match with Leon DeRock, a fellow townsman. Kavaya climbed into a crab-like shell at the start of the four-rounder, climbing out of it only at intervals. DeRock won the decision because of his obvious willingness to mix with Kavaya although he received no co-operation from his opponent who disdainfully declined to fight. It was a poor bout, pool because Kavaya refused to fight. Billy Kay Gets K. O. Billy Rayfeldt, high school youngster fighting under the ring cognomen of Billy Ray, made an impressive showing in his first appearance before a local crowd as he flattened Leo Cashman in 1:10 of the first round after battering his rival all over the ring in that short space of time. Ray, with dynamite loaded YANKS PIN THEIR HOPES ON "POOSH 'EM UP" LAZZERRI Tony, 32, Ranks as Problem Man of Joe McCarthy's New Yorkers. By PAUL MICKELSON Associated Press Sports Writer. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., CTJ-- Tony's got to "poosh-'cm-up." If Tony--Anthony Michael Laz- zcri--doesn't "poosh-'cm-up" like he did in his good old days, the New York Yankees arc quite apt to be "pooshcd" around and out of the hot 1936 American league pennant race. Tony Big Problem. Tony, now 32. ia the Yankees' big problem man. If he delivers afield and "at bat, the McCarthy men will be tough to beat. So far Tony has elated Manager Joe McCarthy with his condition and spirit, yet there is fear that he won't be able to play often enough when the weather gets hot, the doubleheadcrs pile up and the playing fields get hard and crusty. Therefore, McCarthy has been workout his probable second base replacements so fast the Yankee infield resembles a relay meet. Don Heffner and Johnny Sa'ltzgavcr lead the candidates for the big "must" job. Frank Crosetti Out. Frank Crosetti, out for the last 62 games in the 1935 campaign with a knee injury, also is a problem but from the way he is acting in drills, all seems well him and his shortstopping job. Should he falter, Bob Rolfe may be shifted over from third. Otherwise, the sun is shining bright on the Yankees, who vigorously deny reports that they are about age to crack up because of old Leland Drops Two G a m e s to Crystal Lake Cage Quints LELAND--The Leland high school basketball teams lost a doublchcad- er to Crystal Lake on the local I floor. The girls lost 27 to 15 and the boys were defeated by a score of 45 to 15. This was the last game of the season for the high school. fist, shows possibilities which may be developed in future cards. In a match dull by comparison with that which preceded it, Frank Murphy of Mason City : after dropping the first lap, gave Mickey Moon of Manly a sound licking, scoring a knockout with only 30 seconds left to go. Kid White Another Winner. Kid White, a veteran well-known to local fans, knocked out Farmer Anderson of Clear Lake after 1:40 of the opening round by steadily punching the Clear Laker who had no offense and whose defense was an awkwardly extended knee--ajie- fense unique in local ring annals. John Rehms of Manly outpointed another local ring veteran, Tony Wcitzel. although he lost the first round by a close margin. Wcitzel tired rapidly and during the last period was barely able to lift a glove. A knockout, first of a series in a card replete with bouts which ended on short notice, opened the evening's festivities when Bud Keeny made use of a weight advantage to rough his opponent and the Manly boy was too tired to continue midway in the second round and Referee Slim Craychee lifted Keeny's hand in token of victory. Belle Plaine Falls Before Chickasaws Winners Get First District Win in 18 Years. NEW HAMPTON--New Hampton high school defeated Belle Plaine 18 to 16 in the first round of the Class A district tournament here Thursday night. The game was not as close as the score indicates. New Hampton led 4 to 3 at the end of the first quarter and 11 to 6 at half-time and increased it to 14 to 7 at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Gerald Carney, Chickasaw guard, left the game with two minutes to go on fouls with the New Hampton team leading 18 to 10. McCune, Belle Plaine guard, dropped in two and Harris, forward, one, but the gun saved the Chickasaws. The- winners played an excellent defensive game, holding the Iowa- Cedar league contenders to two field goals for 30 minutes. Bob Struble was in good form, sinking four from the field for New Hampton. It was the first district tournament game that New Hampton had won since 1918. Boxscore: y. H A M I ' T O N -- I S B.

By AL MITCHELL (Globe-Gazette Sports Editor ) ESTHERVILLE--Holding a. 21 to 6 lead with four minutes left to play Mason City high school relaxed its defense as Estherville staged a closing spurt, but still had a big enough edge to win 24 to 15 in a first round district tournament game here Thursday night.

The victory advanced the Mohawks to the second round of the eighth district meet where they, oppose Sioux Center at 9:20 Friday night. Mohawks Not Used to Court. Estherville's Midgets made their best stand in the opening period which saw the Mohawks take a 7 to 4 lead on Wayne Wood's easy running shot and a pair of ringers by Jack Shipley, coupled with a free toss by Everett Fletcher. Mason City, not used to the long narrow court, controlled the ball but failed to get into scoring range during much of the quarter. Howard Stoecker'5 long one hand shot was the only attempt made in the first :wo minutes. Another hook shot by Stoecfter "rom side of the court added to a tipup scored as he followed his own miss on a wide open dribble helped the Mohawks toward a 14 to 6 margin at the half. Joe Hillestad's circus foal just ahead of the gong scored Sstherville's only points. Midgets Go Scoreless. The Midgets went without a point during the third period and Stoecker's whirl shot just before the end was the only field goal in the quarter. Mason City led 19 to 6 as the period closed. Stoecker whipped in another goal from far out on the court as the last quarter started for Mason City's final basket, teaming with Jack Wallace to add the rest of the Mohawk total on a free throw later in the period. Mervin Bagan and Doug Reynolds scored from the field as the Midgets opened their belated rush but the rest of the Estherville scoring was confined to free thro%vs by Bagan and Joe Woods.
