MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 21 193(5 NINE T I M E O U T ! By PINCH HITTER Life \n Stranger Than Fiction. Sentimcntalism is something usually overlooked in the columns of a sports page but from Beloit, Wis., comes a story too fraught with pathos of the athletic world to be lost in the shuffle of evcry-day facts and figures. It was the third quarter of a district tournament game between Beloit and Kcnosha, for years bitter rivals. Kenosha had yet to score a tournament victory over its court rival. Kenosha suddenly hit a scoring burst and ran the count to 27 to 15 in its favor as the final quarter opened. On the Kenosha bench, Coach Fred Bauer was gazing at the game with unseeing eyes, slumped over on the players' bench. The basketball game was stopped as physicians sought to revive the Kenosha coach who it was believed had fainted because of the excitement prevailing as his team led Beloit. Artificial respiration, adrenalin and a lungrootor were tried without success. Coach Bauer had died almost instantly of a heart attack. A victory wanted more than any other and he failed to see his wishes come true. Coach Herman Jacobson of Beloit conceded the game to Kcnosha without completing the final seven minutes. Coach Bauer's men were undecided as fo whether they should continue in the tournament but Mrs. Bauer made their decision when she told them. "Your coach would want you to carry on." The team voted to continue tournament competition. Who says there is no drama in the sports world? There will be many an eager eye cast on the 'Wisconsin state tournament results to see how Kenosha will fare without its coach. A great victory recorded but a greater loss sufrcrcd. That is Kcn- osha'R record in the district tournament. Kcnosha could have no greater inspiration than to win the state tournament in honor of the memory of its coach. It will be an interesting test. * * * What Price Mascn City? Much to my surprise, I have noticed many followers of the Mason City high school basketball team are reluctant to make any predictions concerning the high school team's fortunes this tournament season. It reminds me of the 1935 season when hardly a case fan in the city, much less any in Iowa, gave Mason City-a chance to win the- prized state championship. Yet the Mohawks walked oft \vi(h the title. It was my privilege to be with the titular squad throughout the slate tournament at Cedar Falls and, if you'll pardon a little boasting, it seemed to me that Judge Grimslcy's men were out for a state title and nothing less. Throughout the meet they thought of hut one thing--to win the championship and show up the so-called experts. They did both in admirable fashion. It was their grit and determination not to lose which gave the Mohawks their first cage title. Not one man on. the squad thought only of the chances of beating Murray, Independence, Davenport or Grinncll. They thought of them collectively as stumbling blocks in the way of their goal. Each block was treated accordingly. This year a team with a record better than that of the state championship squad has been under-rated by everyone "but canny Judge Grimsley and a few others. Judge knows his boys are capable of putting up a great bid for another state championship. Mason City doesn't pile up many impressive scores but that is because the Mohawks aren't interested in fattening their scoring averages as much as they are in winning ball games. Their seasonal record of 2« victories and four losses is a pretty good lest of that theory. We don't say Mason City will win a state or even district championship. Far be it from us to climb that far out on a limb. But we do claim that it will take a mighty tough ball club--one which will probably win the title itself--to keep Mason City from bringing home another trophy. IOWA RETAINS TRACK CROWN y Drake Finishes Second in Quadrangular Meet as Records Fall. IOWA CITY, UB--Iowa's Hawk- eyes still are the state's collegiate indoor track and field champions. George T. Bresnahan's athletes won the title again Friday night, scoring 74 points in the quadrangular meet with Drake, Iowa State and Grinnell. Drake finished second with 42 1-6 points. Iowa State was Ihird wilh 25 and Grinnell last with 13 5-6. Capt. Linn Philson of Drake leaped 6 feet, 5 inches for a new meet record in the high jump. Big Floyd DeHeer, Iowa's Ihree-sport athlete, tossed the shot 47 feet. 7 inches and Francis Cretzmeyer, Hawkeye captain broke the BO yard low hurdles mark for the other mcel records. The mile relay was the mosl ex- ciling- race, Iowa healing out Grinnell by one. foot as Skinner hit the tape ahead of Barnes, the Pioneers' ace.

By AL MITCHELL (Globe-Gazette Sports Editor) ESTHERVILLE -- The slimmest margin of victory in basketball, a single point, kept Mason City high school's team in the running for Ihe eighth district title here Friday night. The Mohawks waited u n t i l , Ihe final quarter of their game to I C. Says Frankie Frisch: * * * * * * + * * BRADENTON, Fla.--"The St. LouiS Cardinals were nosed out of Ihe pennant last year because we didn't have quite enough pitching. In the acquisition of Roy Parmelcc of the Giants, I feel that we have wiped out the handicap that was with us throughout all of last season. "Despite the fact Parmelce was wild and erratic much of last year, he managed to win 14 games. It is my thought that a rnidseason slump from which Parmclee had difficulty emerging was largely the cause of his tendency to be erratic. He was simply trying too hard and his control suffered. I have no fears about Parmclee on that score and will be disappointed unless he turns in close to 20 victories for the Cardinals. "We have had such good reports on Bill McGce, with Houston last year, that we expect the Cardinals to win some games through his pitching. True, we have lost for the season it seems, one of out catchers in Bill DcLancey, who supplied much power, but we are sure that defensively we will not suffer when Ogrodowski is catching. This looks like a Cardinal year to me." Drawings in Table Tennis Meet. Made beat Sioux Center IS to 17. The victory put Mason City inlo the final game of the Class A meet against Easl Sioux Cily at 9:10 Saturday night. Lcs Davis' East high team had a hard .fight on its hands in the semifinals, winning in a point for point battle with Ida Grove 25 lo 24. To slarl Ihe evening, Ledyard had wound up Ihe first round of Class B contcsls wilh a 29 to 28 victory over Danbury. Gigantic Crowds Pack Gym. Giganlic crowds, 1,300 on Thursday evening and 1.400 Friday nighl, have packed Ihe Roosevell gymnasium so lhat only the early comers can find seats. An even greater attendance is predicted for the final game Saturday between the 1930 and 1934 Iowa champions. A beautiful zone defense by Sioux Center's Braves stifled the Mason City attack through more than half the Friday night game and a sharp- shooting wild man, Harold Dieters, too plenty of heart out of the handful of Mohawk fans when he split Ihe net from far oat on the court for two perfect goals during the first half. One of his goals, plus another by Gerald Vandenberg, helped put Ihe Braves ahead 6 to 3 as the first quarler ended. Stoecker Gets First Goal. Howard Stoecker, tipping in a short rebound, scored Mason City's only first quarter goal and his jumping whirl shot from the center of a defending mob was the only ad- dilion lo Ihe Mohawk lotal in the second period.

TAMPA: Owner Clark Griffith of the Senators has given orders for Pitchers Jimmy Dcshong and Monte Weaver to speed up their conditioning. They are scheduled to pitch against the Reds Saturday. Both Griffith and Bucky Harris were displeased with the club's batting. BRIGGS NONCOMMITTAL. C L E A R W A T E R ; Walter O. Briggs, owner of the Detroit Tigers, says "I'm just a fan." when asked if Hank Grcenberg is any nearer Ihe conlracl fold. Hank says he's a holdout until he gets what he wants. midway in the second period and Dielers got his second ringer just before the gong to put the Braves ahead 11 lo 5. The Mohawk defense langled itself up as the third period opened and Al Brunsline was left standing- alone under the basket for an easy goal but it was Ihe only counter for the Braves during the quarter. Whirl Shots Are Effective. Howard Stoecker, Everett Fletcher and Wayne Wood turned the tide of the contest and sent the Braves frantic in the third period. Stoecker slapped a pair of whirl shots through in one-two order, Fletcher drove in hard from the side of the court and arched a one hand shot down the backboard, and Wood punched another off the boards just at the end. The score was tied at 13 points. A Braves error sent Mason City ahc-ad as Herman Eppink passed into Jack Shipley's hands from out of bounds. The Mason Cityan hot-footed down the court j and was wide open for a setup. Wood sent the losers into jitters as he punched Ihe ring from Ihe same spol as before and Fletcher's spinning free throw wobbled down in the basket to set the Mohawk to- lal at IS points. Vandenberg's follow-in hiked Ihe Braves score to 15. and Brunsting's free throw counted another point but Harry Kuhl missed one of two chances at the free throw line. Both Henry "Hun" Hert and Dieters had been ejected on fouls with three minutes to go. Mason City also fiz- r.Ied on three free chances. Jack Wallace. Fletcher and Shipley all missing single attempts in the last two minutes. Bronson Beats Plymouth. Plymouth high school. Cerro Gordo county's Class B districl tournament entrant, lost in its first game Friday afternoon when Bronson defeated the Mason City sectional winners 3-4 to 12. Two quarters saw . Plymouth making a. hopeless attempt to cul Ihe man to man defense set up by Bronson. The defeated Icam scored a single point in the scconti period and was held scoreless in the fourth. Lloyd Woodhouse scored Plymouth's single first half basket early in the Curlew Eliminates Cylinder in Tourney EMMETSBURG--Curlew jumped on Cylinder for a 29 to 11 victory in the Palo Alto county basketball tournament here Friday night and Ruthven nosed out Graettinger 30 to 2S. Mallard stopped West Bend SB to 22. game and Jim Woodhouse added a free throw in the second period. Joe Slangier Scores. Two close range pokes by Joe Slangier in the third quarter added to a wide open goal by Lester Chehock completed Plymouth's scoring from the field. Bud Lewis, husky Bronson captain, collected 14 points on speedy set shots and a pair of free throws while Louis Amick trailed him with three goals and one free shot.

Semifinal Pairings Centcrville vs. Gilman Cumberland vs. Haiisell DES MOINES, (/PI--Ccnterville, the defending champion, plays Ihe surprising Gilman team and Hansell's scrappy little sextet meets Cumberland Saturday in the semifinals of tho state girls high school basketball tournament. The 1935 title winners were the favorites over the Marshall county team, but the Cumberland-Hanseil conlest was regarded as slriclly a loss-up. The four survivers of Ihe second round remained in the running for the championship only after Ihe hardest type of competition in Friday's contests. Hansel! Eliminates Plover. . Centerville moved along toward its second straight crown by defeating Waterville, 27 to 23;' Gilman upset Mallard, 27 to 21; Cumberland nipped Bode, 26 to 24; and Hansell clipped Plover, 26 to 25. The Redettes stepped out into a big lead over Walerville, bul were forced lo play all the basketball they knew to stifle a late rally. Jean Puls flipped in three quick field goals to bring Waterville within easy striking distance of the lead only to have Centerville choke off the challenge. Gilmaii Too Strong. Gilman had too much last half strength for the Mallard team. The score was tied at 8-all al the end of the first half, but Evelyn Thompson and Lucille Vosburg led a final drive that sent Oilman into the semifinals with plenty to spare. Cumberland won a Friday thriller from Bode when Margaret Dougherty, a trim little Irish iass. dropped in a field goal in the last 10 seconds. The winners were off to a splendid slart but the Bode learn kept plugging away and finally tied the score at 24-aII. Hansell a sextet of small but persistent batllers, produced a driving second half attack lhat nipped Plover in another sizzling contest Hansell was behind 22 to 17 at Ihe start of the final quarter, but Hattie Van Wert and Ardis Held went to work and poured in sufficient points for the victory.

NEW HAMPTON -- Dubuque's Senior high school dropped oul of Ihe district basketball tournament here, 20 to 10, in an overtime period Friday. The cocky Seniors held a 6 to 0 lead at the end of the first period and lead diminished from that point. It was Waldron, reserve guard for the Union team, who came through. During the overtime Kamm left the game on personal fouls. At the end of the regular game the score was tied at 15 apiece. Dubuque scored only one field goal during the lasl half.

Duane Wilson, Senior coach, pro- leslcd that the gun had sounded before the shot was made but the officials ruled lhat it had been made in Ihe proper manner. Swale, Union center, gets the most praise for his super defensive work in holding Milier. senior center to but one field goal. On Thursday he scored seven from the field. New Hamplon was eliminated from the tournament Friday nighl 22 to 16 by West Waterloo in the semifinals. The Old Rose learn led from the start when Galloway, Waterloo guard, dropped one in.

DBS MOINES, f.n--.Most of the favorites remained in the race Saturday, but some of I hem still trembled as they entered the final rr.unds of the district play in the boys' state high school basketball tournament. Mason City, the 103H champion, Davenport and East Sioux City, three of the most popular nominees for the title, moved along in the district competition on the slim mar- in of one point decisions. Either Mason City or East Sioux City will fade out of tho picture Saturday night. They meet in the Class A finals in the eighth district at Eslhcrville. Mason City dropped ioux Center, IS to 17. Friday night, and the Sioux City club eliminated Ida Grove, 25 to 24. Blue Devil* Survive 31-3u. Davenport's Blue Devils survived by getting a 31 to 30 victory over the powerful Burlington team, and they'll play Fail-field, which put out Muscaline, 22 to 19. for the first district honors on their own floor Saturday night. Ames, West Waterloo, Abraham Lincoln of Council Bluffs. Logan, Webster City, Creslon, Albia and Oltumwn. were other favorite Class A teams to survive the sniping. Some of them are certain to be eliminated Saturday night, for they are paired in the district finals. West Waterloo Favored. Albia and Ottumwa meet in the Class A finals at Ottumwa and Abraham Lincoln plays Logan in the Council Bluffs tournament. Ames probably will win the Class A title at Marshalltown over Newton. West Waterloo likewise will be the choice over West Union at New Hampton. Creston gels the call over Perry at Creston and Wcbsler Cily is the choice over the home town team at Sac City The Class B favorites survived Friday night's torrid play in much more comfort lhan Ihe Class A leaders. Diagonal, Bronson, Wellsburg, Lnwden, Maloy, Ledyard and Ai- bumelt still were on the firing line. Sixteen teams, eight from each class, will be left Saturday night as the eligibles for the state finals at Des Monies next week. Southern Minnesota C a g e Teams Out of State Tournament.
