»r; Jan. 21, 1M1 13 ON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Mohawks in Action Here Friday, Saturday Nights :ft06ER Eliminate Farms, You Ruin Baseball-Breadon There seems to be a general (·end in the major leagues, at ast among some of the higher (loguls, to.diassociate the big cir- uits from the minors. William G. iramham, commissioner of the IHinors, is one of those, and Clark Irriffith, owner and president of lie Washington Senators,, has re- pntly added his name to that list. By VINCENT THILLEN St. Louis, (U.R)--Elimination of the farm system would ruin baseball and eventually leave only those major league clubs with unlimited bankrolls hi operation, Sam Breadon, president of the St/ Louis Cardinals, bluntly warned Thursday. .' "Eliminate the farm system and what have you l e t t?". Breadon asked. "Nothing," he answered himself. We really can't find any logical "There would be uo small mi- planation for these desires. As nor leagues, no uncovering and r as we know, the arrangements development of players, and no .ve worked out more than sat- major league clubs, except those Eactorily for the majors.

Just as in football, the non- conference schools in the midwest are supplying some "of the outstanding teams in the current basketball competition. Among the foremost are Great Lakes and Camp Grant, service teams that have become the scourge of the area. The Camp Grant Warriors remain as one of the outstanding squads in the midwest after balancing a defeat by Marquette against 4 straight victories . . . Coached by Lt. Robert Harris, formerly of Wisconsin, .Camp Grant has whipped some easy opponents, but also some tough ones --the pro Sheboygan Redskins for Nashua Trips Stimner, 28-17 Nashua--The Nashua basketball team tripped.Sumner, 28-17, here in a ' non-conference encounter. Nashua l«d at the intermission, 12-4. Tommy Chandler "dumped in 10 points for the victors, while Allenstein had 6 for Sumner. The Surnner junior high school quintet downed the Nashua yearlings, 14-10. . - ' . · Postville Downs Elkader, 34-25 Postville--Postville stopped El- ! kader here in an Upper Iowa con- · Charles City I.C.

We don't think no matter which angle you tiller. |Ve hope the majority will see to keep things going as they answer to a battering attack on the farm system launched Wednesday by Clark Griffith, owner of the Washington Senators. Breadon would continue his farm clubs along the same lines with but one exception--he will not venture into the field as extensively as when Rickey was masterminding the Cards to top honors in the baseball world. "Do away with farms," said Breaclon, "and you arc doing away with initiative and enterprise and · putting a premium on dollars, instead of brains. The rich clubs will get richer and the poor clubs poorer 'and soon there will be a dearth of major league material." , . After the war, baseball officials should encourage all systems-farm, independent a n d working agreements, in Breadon's opinion, but he doubts whether the good old days of community supported teams will ever come back. "Back in 1910, when the minors had so many leagues, the businessmen in small communities had no other interests--no coun- .try club, no golf, no automobiles and no movies. They took pride iii backing-baseball teams as a community enterprise, but they're the exception today." He pointed out that class D and C clubs often l o s e money and would fold except for the backing of a "big brother" outfit which needs a spot to develop its rookies. He termed- "ridiculous" Stan Szukala, ex-DePaul star; John Niemiera of Notre Dame; George Hogan and Mickey Rottner of Loyola, and KSul jHcCall of Bradley Tech. Great Lakes, with only 2 defeats in- 17 starts, is paced by those 2 formes Indiana stars, Paul Armstrong and Herman Schaefer, who are playing as teammates "for the loth season . . . Schaefer averaged 15-2 points a game for the. first 14 games this season. DePaul had 13 straight victories before falling to Valparaiso, a team whose average 'lieight is ference cage encounter, 34-25. The \yiners led at halftime, 14-9. Jim Looney scored 9 points for Postville, while Dittmer had 14 for Elkader. In a curtain raiser, the Elkader junior club topped Postville's yearlings, 11-9. ' * Orchard Beats ' Little Cedar Orchard--Orchard dumped Little Cedar in a Wa-Ce conference game here, 38-26. Orchard pulled away after starting slowly. The winners held a 17-14 halftime lead. Onken scored 13 for Orchard, while .McPhail notched 9 for Little Cedar. The Orchard lassies also ivon, downing the Little Cedar sextet, 35-12. Orchard led 8-6 at halftime. * * Thompson Takes Crystal Lake Crystal Lake--A visiting Thompson basketball t e a m whipped Crystal Lake here, 34-18, putting on a second-half -splurge that pulled them away from a 14-7 halftime margin.

West Waterloo Will Play Here Saturday Returning to the home, court for the first time since the Christmas holidays, Mason City's basketball team will face two Big Seven conference opponents on successive nights, taking on East Waterloo Friday and West Waterloo Saturday: The Mohawks, however, have not been idle in the meantime. They have met 3 conference foes out of town, dropping games to East high ;ind Roosevelt high, both of DCS Moines. and taking the Fort Dodge team into camp. Charles City also fell prey to the Cardinal and Black. The team got off to a good start ou the home court early in the campaign, whipped favored Waverly and Marshalltown during the vacation period and stamped itself as a. danger6us outfit. Two of the games lost since that time were played in small gymuatfiums that hampered the Mohawk style of play. The quintet, however, has developed at a fast pace since v\he opening of practice sessions when Coach Bud Suter and Assistant Mentor Joe Rogers took an almost entirely green squad and NELSON WINS §2,400 AND TROPHY --Byron Nelson (above) of Toledo, Ohio, won first prize o£ §2,400 in war bonds by posting a final round of 70 for a total of 275 for the 72-hole tournament in the San Francisco Open.

Valpo shot an ace-in-the- hple at DePaul in the person of J. Janisch, who did a hasty enrollment in school and then scored 15 points against the undefeated DePaul squad.

Krause made the statement at a Chicago's basketball writers' meeting this week that George Mikan, DeFaul's 6-foot, S-inch mainstay, is the finest center in the nation .-..

Assistant Coach Waldo Fisher of Northwestern points out that despite all the talk about lend- lease players at navy-powered colleges, this year's Wildcat regulars are all Northwestern-bred, except for Jerry Carle, V-12 transfer . . .

Democracy Works Best in Boxing World, Says Walker . # Strength in Numbers Say Ball Moguls SPORT$ ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON New York. (fP)--Following up By SID FEDER New York. (/P)--Boxing began to count noses Thursday after one of its biggest stock-taking jobs, and the score card showed praise for the nose-mashing industry as the "place where democracy works best" and a warning that it's time to get "politics out of the fight game." These bouquets and belts-in-the- eye were tossed around Wednesday night by a collection of such experts as Former Mayor Jimmy Walker, National Boxing Association President Abe Greene and Ring Magazine Publisher Nat Fleischer. The tossing was done at the annual award dinner of the Boxing Writers Association of New York, at which the Edward J. Neil Memorial plaque was presented to the 4,100 boxers in the armed forces in appreciation of what they've done for the sport. b o t h Hansell--The Hanscll basketball teams captured a doubleheader victory from Geneva here, the boys winning 22-17, and the girls swamping the opposition, 57-31.

The way the "brains" reason the clubs controlling the greatest numbers of players will have the best chances of procuring replacements with their regulars go marching off to the war.

Washington, with 32 players now available, expects to fill its roster to the limit of 40 men before spring training starts and the Reds plan four additions to'the 30 now listed. As Washington's Clark Griffith pointed out, this year's squads differ from the usual spring training groups in that they're composed largely of slowed-down, veterans and untried rookies.
