It was the 4th consecutive victory for Coach Bud Suter's aggregation. So thoroughly trounced were the visitors that Suter played his reserves for the full 4th quarter after the regulars had compiled a 26-8 lead in the earlier 3 sessions. The outcome was never in doubt, as the rebound work of the Cardinal and Black team kept the ball out ol North hands most of the game. Slipshod passing on both sides marked the opening quarter, but the Mohawks settled down and played a steady game thereafter.

With 5 minutes already gone by, 'Brown opened the scoring for North with a field = oal, and 2 more free throws °ound out the 1st period point- getting as the Mohawks held a 10:lead. Afield goal in each or the 2nd and 3rd periods was the most North could do with the Cardinal and Black defense. In the in- erim, the Mohawks rane up 7 more markers in the 2nd stanza-to lold a 17-6 lead at the intermission. Wagner, Miller and Ike Zeigler accounted for the 7. Six more markers in the 3rd period brought the count up to 238 at the end of the quarter. Wagner accounted for naif o£ them,- ivith Zeigler contributing 2 and Miller the remaining point.

The 2nd stringers added a more points before the game had closed with Bruns sinking 3 and Bud Rae 2. In the meanwhile, however, North finally came to life and added 12 points to its total, but it was much too late in the contest to alter matters. For the 2nd night in a row, Wagner topped the scoring, this time with 8 points on 3 field goals and 2 gratis tosses. Miller was run- By FRANK ECK A. P. Features Sports Writer New York,--Though the western roll--no relation, to the kind surrounding a rationed hamburger--was brought into prominence in high jumping almost 32 years, ago, there have been no new inventions or body movements suggested to improve the ceiling. George Horine of Stanford University scaled a record 6 feet 7 in 1912 when he used the roll to get over the cross bar." Before that, the old-fashioned scissors -- first one leg over, then the other--was the proper thine in high jumping technique. In recent years the best j u m p - ers have been Les Steers of the San Francisco Olympic Club. Bill Stewart of Southern California and Mel Walker of Ohio State. Steers cleared 6-11 at Los Angeles in 1941 after Stewart and Walker made 6-10% and 6-10=,i respectively, in 1937. Steers' feal brought speculation of a 7-foo jump but after he retired and th armed forces claimed several o the better jumpers, the 7-£oo angle was forgotten--probably fo: the duration. Of the active competitors. Bil Vessie, last year of Columbia bu now at Dartmouth, is tops. lie ha made 6-8. Behind him are Bol Hodgel, Wisconsin's Big Tei champion who can jump 6-6 am who is a naval trainee at Colum bia; Bob Bredin of Pennsylvani who can do 6-5, and Pvt..Joshu Williamson, co-holder with Ves sie of the indoor AAU title.

In 1939 Steers cleare (i-S'/s und the folowing year 1 hiked his body to 6-9% as di Johnny Wilson of the Universit of Southern California. Steers was preceded by Corne When George Horine of Stanford university introduced a body roll to high jumping little did he realize that his 6 foot 7 inch jump would be difficult to negotiate some decades later. Les Steers is shown above going over 6-11 in 1941 but today, with many jumpers in service, most of them would settle for Horine's 6-7. lius Johnson of Compton Jr. College, Cal., and Dave-.Alurltton of Ohio State, both of whom sailed G-9% in the 193B Olympic trials at New York. And before them, Walter Marty or Fresno State College set marks of 6-8 : i's and 61 91k in 1934. One of the best rolling jumpers was Harold Osborn of the Univer- sity iif Illinois. He soared G-8'/i in 1921. surpassing the G-7 5/G made by Eddie Beeson of California in 1314. Thus, Horine and his Western roll didn't do too badly, what with only 4 inches 'having been lopped olt his standard and that by only Steers. COUNTY TITLE IS WON BY ST. JOE Swaledalc Givls Swamp Rock Falls 59-13 Rockwell--St. Joseph's basketball team cut another notch in its belt and added another laurel to the trophy room Saturday nigh by capturing the Cerro Gordo county basketball title here by downing Rockwell, 21-17. It was the 2nd time this season that Rockwell has gone down be fore the Blue and White cagers. The came was 110 walkawaj however. The host school held G-4 lead at (he end of the firs quarter, and made the Johawk fight for every point. The victor outscorcd Rockwell, 5-3, in the 2n quarter and thus pulled up to 9-9 halftime tie. Superior speed and .smooth working plays began to tell in th 3rd period as St. Joe gradual! pulled away to command a l(i-l margin at the end of. that quai ter. Scoring was once-again eve in the final period, but it was no enough to enable Rockwell to catch up, and Father A. D. Gibbs' charges went on to victory. Center Frank Paltee and Eor- ward Jim Colloton paced the victors with 7 and G points, respectively, while Clark had 8 for Rockwell. In the evening's opening tournament, the Swaledalc girls walked axvay with the title in their division by completely swamping Rock Fails. 59-13. The Swalcdale Ned Day of West Allis, Wis., national match game bowling champion, gives a few, pointers on the avt of pin tumbling to pretty Jean Dupont, Chicago bowling miss. Strikes, Ned tells Jean, are 1 automatic if the bowler am hit the 1-3 pocket (between the one and three pins) with a working or spinning ball. Southpaws shoot for the 1-2 pocket hit with the same results. NORTH IOWA BASKETBALL lassies went ahead early and merely ec -·"-'·ry. The winners led at the intermission, 28-!.
