' * Manly Topples Tianloritown, 25-22 Manly _ Coach Abe Martin's Manly basketball team defeated a visiting Hanlontown team here Tuesday night, .25-22. The Railroaders staged a second half comeback to turn the trick. Hanlontown led at the end of the first quarter, 3-2, and increased it to 11-7 at the intermission. Manly came back in this period, however, to forge into the lead, 17-16 at the conclusion of the period. Hogan and Collis paced the Manly attack with 9 and 8 p o i n t s respectively.

' Despite the fact that the Mohawks held slim leads at the end of the first'period ana at the half. lime, the game was nip and tuck through the two quarters. It was not until-the'third session that the Cardinal and Black began to forge ahead to stay. Everything Mason City did seemed to go right. The rebound work was excellent, and plays worked to perfection. It took the Mohawk quintet a while to solve the tight Austin defense, but once it broke that, the outcome was never in doubt. Richardson, A u s t i n forward who played such a bit part in the previous Minnesota victory, was shackled by the alert Mo-, hawk defense, and the best .he could do was a field goal and free throw for 3 points. Forward Ike Zeigler paced the Mason City attack with 11 markers on 4 baskets and 3 charity tosses, but ^thcrwise the scoring was fairly «*»n1 ir~*4it'ijitf»j1 "" ' Forward Art W a g n e ri and Guard Gus,, DiMarco netted 8 points each, while Bob Miller's 4, Verlyn Rutt's 3 and Bob Johnson's 2 rounded out the point- making. Butt and Zeigler' left the game via the personal foul route late in the fourth quarter when it did little damage to the - Mason City cause. At the end of the first period the Cardinal, and Black commanded an 8-6 lead, and by halftime still was ahead, this time by 12-11: It was in the third period, however, that the Mohawk attack began, to click. The Sutermen connected for 13 points while holding the Austin quintet to 7. enabling Mason City fo hold a'25-18 lead at the end of that quarter. Cardinal and Black dominance continued in the final stanza, as the Mohawks outscored Austin, 11-7, to win going away. The Mohawks will try for victory number 11 on the'Roosevelt floor Friday night by taking on Charles City in a non-conference contest.

By BOB MEYER Cliicago, (U.R)--Ensign Sid Luck- man--footbalPs"T-That-Grew-ln- Brooklyn"--W e d n e s-d a y was named as 1943's "most valuable player" in the National Football league. Luckman, the Gowanus kid who passed his way from Brooklyn's Erasmus Hall high school through Columbia university to become professional football's foremost exponent of the "T" formation, defeated Don Hutson of the Green Bay Packers by 3 points in the league's annual voting Io win the most coveted professional football honor. The choosing of Luckman by a board of sports writers from the league's member .cities blocked Hutson's chance to win the "most valuable player" award for the third straight year. Six players figured in the voting, which was based upon 5 points for a first- place ballot and Z points for 2nd place. The ballol: 1st 2nd Pnts.

In 10 games Luckman passed for 2,194 yards and 28 touchdowns-both new league records. He completed .545 per cent of his attempted passes and directed the Bears "T" with skill and discretion. Coach Curley Lambeau of Green Bay said that "playing against Luckman is like playing against a team with a coach on the field." Paradoxically, Luckman came to the Bears in 1939 with a confirmed hatred of the "T." Fresh from all-America honors at Co- Survey Shows 60 Inducted Since Close of 1943 Season By OSCAR FRALfY New York, (U.R)--A United Press iurvey revealed Wednesday that JO major leaguers have been dratted since the 1943 campaign ended, leading to belief that the meeting of baseball's post-war ilanning committee this weekend will develop into a "carry on" session concerned with 1944. . Major league moguls convene Jaturday in a forum originally intended to iron out post-Armistice ailments. But while' indications were that baseball would be able io continue, manpower inroads concentrated attention on a battle for survival. Sixty men from last year's ma- ior league rosters already have joen taken into the armed forces since the world series, while 120 men have been rejected for service. Heaviest losers in the National league were the championship St. Louis Cardinals and 2nd place Cincinnati, each of which lost 7 men, followed by New York and Brooklyn, both ot whom lost 5; lumbia, Luckman had to be sold on the system by Assistant Coach Luke Johnson.

The world champion New York Yankees and, 3rd place Cleveland lave been hit hardest in the Amer- can league, each with 5 top men :aken, followed by Philadelphia, Washington and Detroit, each 4; St. Louis and Chicago, each 3, and Boston, 1.

Each learn has 12 of these men, followed by i Pittsburgh, -10; Chicago and Philadelphia, each 8; Cincinnati, 7; Boston, 4, and St. Louis, 3.
