JJr. John Bain "Jock" Sutherland has resigned the job which saw him take spot No. 1 in the list of · · at First intimation that all was not well between Sutherland and the university, came in early 1937 when a long-standing feud with W. Don Harrison, then athletic director . . . and a former loivan . - . came into the open because of Harrison's treatment of Pitt players who went to the Rose Bowl that year. « * e Sutherland reportedly accused Harrison of pinching pennies in alloting spending money to ihe athletes. Harrison was said to' have told Sutherland, "I made you, and I'll break you." The latter offered to resign, but instead, Harrison quit on March 20, 1937* The new director, James Hagan authored the so-called "Hagan plan" to de-emphasize sports. It was adopted by the university on July 21, 1937. . . . Later, a revised plan, known as the "Code Bowman'* J A * ~ · 1938. . Last fall threatened ' settled by MASON CITY SET TO DEFEND IOWA J. C.

Snickers Snickers from the sectional bas- ketball tournaments around North Iowa: This column conductor has been taking more or less of a beating from Ted Klemesrud of ' the Thompson Courier, for listing Titonka high school as a Class B candidate for championship honors in advance stories on the North Iowa battles o£ last week. Well, Ted ... I bow in defeat. . .Titonka is a Class A team. It seems that the error originated in the high school athletic office at Des Moines.

Rogers was ready to call it a day when he blasted the final whistle in Emmetsburg's sectional tournament Saturday night. Rogers, who comes from Lytton, officiated two doubleheaders near home Monday and Tuesday, and came to Emmetsburg to blow his way through one five-game program, two more of four games each, and the two-game final session. Total, 19 games in six days will be seeking the title he!d by the Trojan cagers of Mason City. It is the largest entry in the history of a 2 year school meet Dopesters b e l i e v e the top bracket is the toughest.
