BROWNS TO STOP SOME TOP CLUBS Like Last Season, St. Loui: Team Won't Win, Bat Will Influence Top Race. By PAUL MICKELSON · Associated Press Sports Writer WEST PALM BEACH, Ma, ISP)-- The St. Louis Browns will operate the stop and go signs of the impending American league road race As last season, wbea they detoured the Yankees out of the lead and placed the Tigers on the four lane highway to the pennant, Rogers Hornsby and his crew have no hopes of winning the flag-, but they expect to.have a lot to say about who will. Turning the Red light on the speeders is their specialty. Kajah's Generally Bight. Fifth place is Hornsby's goal and he generally gets what he's . after. "We'll have substantially the same club as we had at the finish of last season except that we'll be a bit smoother with our experience of playing together," says the Rajah, "so I figure we should have no great amount of trouble jumping a couple'ol notches. With Detroit, Boston, Cleveland, and New York to contend with, our only reasonable hope can, be fifth place. If any of them crack up, you'll see a wide patch of brown in first division for the first time since 1929." Slickest Set of Deals. The Rajah, without much money to spend for hall players, began his sharp bargaining for 1936 as far back as last July. He got cash and Outfielder Julius Solters from the Red Sox for Infieldeir Oscar Melillo. He swapped Pitcher George Blaeholder to the Athletics for Outfielder .Ed Coleman and Pitcher Merritt (Sugar) Cain, obtained Shortstop Lyn Lary from Washington for Infielder Alan Strange and a few greenbacks, and bought Second Baseman Tom Carey of the St. Louis Cardinals farm at Rochester. The deals, rated by baseball men as the slickest assortment of the year, gave the Rajah what he needed most--a fast, sure working infield and a good hitting outfield.

All the old rules ... the hand being required t pass within six inches of the hip . . . penalties for snap and jerky de liveries, and so on, still apply. RIGHT HERE at home, severa new ideas will be tried in the Y. M C. A. leagues. There will be 15 play ers, including a manager if he plays in each squad . . . the number has been raised from 13 ... each of the three local leagues will have one East park diamond to itself . for the season . . . there will be no rotation of leagues among the threa fields. * * * THE SEASON will include two complete rounds of play, starting' June 1 and ending July 21. Percentages will be kept for each round and a team winning both halves o: the split schedule will be a cham pion . . . if different teams divide the honors of the split season, 1 a two-out-three game playoff will de cide the trophy winner. And then will be three city champions this year, with a trophy for each . . . since the round robin playoff be tween league leaders, and the Littl World series between round robin leaders have been discarded. Iowa Table Tennis Aces , to Play for New Honors CEDAR RAPIDS, (/B--Most of Iowa's leading, table tennis players will compete in the state meet here April 4 and 5. Don Filbert, 1935 winner, will defend his title, but will get worthy competition from several other entrants, including Robert Gates, Iowa State' college champion, and Pan Cbandler and George King, Des Moines stars. There will be competition in the men's, women's and junior divisions, Rake High School Cagers End Season With Victory RAKE--Rake high school's basketball teams closed their season with a double victory over Scarville, after fighting muddy roads for two lours on the trip. The Rake girls won 23 to 12, while the boys won 18 to. 17 from the Winnebago Class B champions in a hard fight, using 3. patched lineup. Sidney Johnson, center and cap- .ain, will be lost by graduation. The lake second team .was undefeated his season, beating a series of trong reserve outfits in North Iowa and southern Minnesota, A Famous Ruby, a Murder --and a Chinese Servant Lends an Oriental Touch Soon, the valet, was an enigma. An ageless Chinese, his loyalty to Dow Van Every, his master, was indisputable. His : presence added an Oriental touch to this; baffling murder that seemed to resolve it-j self around the fa-! mous Camden ruby.' D e t e c t i v e Keyes found him a willing but a puzzling witness as Van Every a n d M a u g h ' a n watched the relent- l e s s cross-examination following THE CAMDEN RUBY MURDER by ADAM BLISS Beginning Thursday, March 26 in the Globe-Gazette MAE BEATS KATY AT LOCAL MATCH Women Join Grunt and Tug Profession as Show Is Held at Armory. Women have entered almost every branch of the athletic world but not until Monday night was a feminine wrestling match seen in Mason City as Miss Mae Meyers of Minneapolis successfully defended her claim to the women's lightweight championship by taking two out of three falls from Miss Katy Hopkins of West Port. Minn. The match was considerably enlivened by the antics of a female ringside spectator who at various times wanted to aid the challenger, Miss Hopkins, and at one time when the challenger was pushed toward her fondly held her in her lap. After the usual kicking, slapping, biting, scratching, etc., the Minneapolis girl won, taking the third fall when Miss Hopkins was disqualified for going a step too far, even for 'rassling. Referee Ralph Tarr of Clear Lake was at various times the subject of the women's indignation when he separated them and the crowning comical point was reached when Miss Hopkins grabbed the arbiter with a headlock and Miss Meyers put a scissors on Miss Hopkins to really complicate the affair. Frank Bauer of Swea City took two straight falls from Jack Stone of Fargo, N. Dak., when the Dakp- tan suffered a wide gash over his eye as Bauer leaped upon Stone's face while he was lying on the mat. Stone foolishly continued in the second fall and the cut was soon opened again, a gory shower blinding the Fargo man until it was no job for Bauer to pin him. Bobby Byland p i n n e d Bull Schmidt in 10:30 with an armlock and scissors in another match and in a paperweight battle between brothers. Allan Tarr took two out of three falls from his brother, Don. The Tarrs are from Clear Lake. Billy Schober of Clear Lake s did the announcing. Bowling Representatives Seek Award of Next Meet INDIANAPOLIS, UP)--Representatives of New York and Detroit, major contenders for the 1937 American bowling congress tournament, began arriving here Tuesday in preparation for the annual business meeting of .the congress, to be held Friday afternoon. The site for the 1937 tournament will be selected at that meeting. Officers also will be elec- ;ed and legislative matters considered. In the meantime local booster squads again furnished most of the activity at the tournament. Quas'-Kweh-Ton Set to Play Mason City at Iowa Cage Scrap Mason City lilKh school plays Quas-que-ton in the first round of the state basketball tourna ment's final session, at 3:10 Thursday--at least L. H. Gilchrist, 418 Seventh street northeast, who lived in the neighbor town of Ryan as a boy, says that the accent is on the first sylla- le. The second syllable "e" is given the short pronunciation, and combines with the "qu" to make something like "kweh." No one ever bothered to use the full name of fjic to\vn when he was a youngster, though, says the Mason Cltyan. The neighbors compromised on "Quaskie." Three of Champions Get Berth as County Honors Are Given for Palo Alto EMMETSBURG--Coaches from nine Palo Alto county schools have announced their selection of an all- county honor team in basketball, with three Emmetsburg players and two Mallard cagers included in the picked quintet. Ray Beatty, fast Emmetsburg forward who led all scorers in the county cage meet, was named, and Compton, Mallard star, was chosen as the other forward on the honor quintet. Gehrt of Mallard and Norvell of Emmetsburg landed guard berths on the mythical five, and Dillingham, lanky Emmetsburg player, was given the center position. The coaches' selection was made following the county tournament here, in which Mallard and Emmetsburg' fought in the finals, Emmetsburg winning 40 to 21.

Joyce Barker, Tap and Toe Dancer, Is Starred Youthful Stepper Is One of Featured Acts in "Top Hat Revue." Joyce Barker, entrancing bit of rhythm, fills one of the bright spots in the eight act "Top Hat Revue" which is scheduled to feature the Cecil theater's combination stage and screen bill Wednesday and Thursday. Lightning-like taps, executed both in the usual manner and from toe dancing position, easily merit Miss Barker's starring role in this hour of vaudeville variety arranged and produced by Harry Clark, veteran of the stage. Other acts included in the show are "The Great Togo," master manipulator of spinning tops, balls and Japanese devil stic-Ks; the Five Top Hatters, dancing team; Howard Fuller and "Sis," Mack and Miller, music and comedy; Anita Muth, a little bit of Sophie Tucker, and Bill Martin's stage band. "Next Time We Love," starring Margaret Sullavan with Ray Millard and James Stewart is the screen attraction, with this stage program. BROOKHARTMAY RUN FOR SENATE Says All G. 0. P. Presidency Candidates Except Borah Wall Street Tools. WASHINGTON, UP) ~ Branding "all the other western candidates" for the republican presidential nomination but Senator Borah as ""tools of Wall Street," former Senator Smith W. Brookhart of Iowa Tuesday said Borah was the G. O. P.'s only chance to win. Brookhart said he probably would start for Iowa Saturday to look over the Hawkeye state's senatorial situation. He denied he had definitely made up his mind to enter the race against Senator L. J. Dickinson and Mayor Edwin Manning of Ottumwa for the republican senatorial nomination, but it was the general understanding in Iowa circles here that he planned to do so. Regarding the race for republican presidential nomination, he said: "Borah is the only candidate who las any chance to win. "Morgan and company want a candidate and they go out to Chicago and get an IHinoisian. 'Standard Oil wants a candidate and goes out to Kansas and picks a supposed independent. Dupont wants a candidate and ;oes out and picks a dark horse lowan.' 1 He mentioned no names. Brookhart slipped on a wet board at his home a couple of weeks ago and broke a small bone in one foot. This has delayed his trip to Iowa, mt he said he expected to leave by Saturday. Total Pln« .. 059 872 9« SITS 925 Players-- 1st r.. A. Adams . 1M H. Bryant . . . 376 Declier . . . . 159 B.
