YOGEL BEGINS TO BUILD IOWA NINE FOR TITLE RACE Six "1" Men Return to Squad But Green Pitchers Worry ; Old Gold Coach. IOWA CITY, March 11.--Balmy breezes of a' phenomenal winter brot a University of Iowa baseball squad to the outdoor diamond at the earliest date in a decade. The field house was the scene of tr 25-man squad's activities for only about three weeks, then Coach Otto H. Vogel escorted his men to a crushed stone practice field. To Open April 18. After an absence of a year from the fold, the Hawkeyes .leap back into' western conference championship competition with 10 games between April 18 and May 30. It appears that six major letter men and one minor '1" winner will strengthen the Iowa entry. If he so desires, , Coach Vogel can^ insert a Jetter man,in every position except shortstop, third base, and left field, but he has only one major "I" ath- Jete v on the pitching staff. . Vets Return. Here are the veterans.-who own honor insignia: L. A. Reedqu'ist, Ottumwa, first base; James Kenny, St. Louis, Mo., second base;' Morton Koser, Iowa City, right field; Capt. J. A. Mo wry, St. Louis, Mo., centerfield;'J. R. Ingraharn, Rbcaelle, HI, pitcher; and Elmo Nelson, Clearfield, catcher. Arthur Porter,' Maxwell infielder, is the minor letter man.. . ; Duplicating .the 1930 situation, the pitching staff is the greatest worry of the Iowa coach. He is laboring with nine candidates, but only three of these know anything about intercollegiate competition. MASON CITY,t IOWA, IN YEARS TO MEET McGROOTY INDOOR SPORTS CLOSE SEASON . A - .

By ALAN GOULD FORT MYERS, Fla., March 11. 2P--Age has begun to creep into the joints of .the Athletics. The machine that has steam-rollered its major league baseball opposition for two straight seasons . shows some signs of wear and tear, hut the six main reasons for the ruler- ship of the Philadelphians remain sound in body and spirit. · 'These reasons are the 68-year old but exceedingly alert pilot, Connie Mack; Aloysius Harry Simmons, probably the greatest of present- day outfielders; James Foxx, the flogging first baseman; Gordon (Mickey) Coehrane', number; 1 backstop of the .major leagues; Robert Moses Grove and-George Livingston E'arnshaw, the two-man pitching staff. ' Mack Keeps His Vets. In the absence of some of these vital cogs, such as Simmons and Earnshaw, who are training at Hot Springs, Ark., and to relieve some of the others, ambitious youngsters have been cavorting in the .light blue of the A's. But when the race starts next month, Mack will send out to the umpires the same lineup that finished the 1930' world's series triumphant, except ^tha'- Grove may be on the mound instead of Earnshaw. Aged tho some of his other athletes may be, Mack's stars retain the spryness of youth. He is content to stand pat for 1931 and make a bid for three successive pennants. Indeed, there is no reason for him to plan otherwise, altho Dib Williams at short and Frank Higgins Texas boy, at second base have been given plenty of chance to develop. Infield Well Fortified. The infield is well fortified elsewhere -in reserves, with Phil Todt, 'ate of the Red Sox, to sub for Foxx and Eric McNair as understudy of Jimmy Dykes at third. Dykes, at 34, is, in his' fourteenth season but Jimmy still dresses, act; and chatters like a collegian. Bing Miller, Simmons, , and George -Haas form the outer patrol. Behind the bat, Cochrane's probable relief man, on the rare occasions when pne is needed, will be John Heving, obtained from the Red Sox on waivers. George (Swede) Walberg gives every indication of a return to form\ in which case Mack's staff may be expanded to a "big three." Roy Mahaffey, the big right ; hander who came thru handsomely in hlr, first big league season, is counted on for a regular turn. CA'GElEASl TO CLOSE AT Y.M, Championship Game Carded in Sunday School League. The championship game of the Sunday School basketball league was 'scheduled for Wednesday evening at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium with the Jewish A. Z. A.s meeting the Church of Christ team. A pre liminary game was scheduled between the Church of Christ juniors and the Globe-Gazette carriers.
