SOME OF THESE things hav been written and said before . . I've used them as subjects for bot personal comment and news storie . . . some of them, I wish I hax said .. . Emmett Mowery, who had a res ervataom right next door to mine in the working press section at th Drake fieldhouse last week, write the following paragraphs for th Ottumwa Courier . . . I can appre date their sincereness . . . aad know that they match my ow views . , . how about yours? "IF THEY . . . have the dop pegged right, the Iowa state hig 1 school tournament will be movex over to the University of Iowa field house next year. It haa outgrown the Drake fieldhouse, it seema, an many a bitter tear was shed b board in control men last Saturda Bight when a numoer of potentia. casJj customers had to be turnec away from the door, their dolla.i in hand, for want ol some place t park 'em inside the builddng. * * * "THERE'S A movement on foo too, engineered by sports editoi who covered the 1936 carnival, t give the state tournament back t the kids who make it the drawin card that it is. This movement fav ore having the I. H. S. A. A. pla . host to every player who compete in the meet for the duration of th carnival. Many a kid who haa fought his heart out for his team to reach the state meet only to IK eliminated in a first or second roun game, has had to pack up and home because his expense money provided 'by. the association, ran ou the '-day his team lost out in th meet race. . . . # : P * ";With tlw^-Gands of dollars rollin ing into the association coffer* through. the sale of tournament tick ets, that group well could afford t not only keep all the players in th meet through the duration of th joust, but to keep them in style. Af ter all, it's these kids that make th tournament possible. * * * "TEARS WERE shed, too, by z tot of the tournament fans over th way the district meet set-ups this season kept such fine clubs as Bur lington, Iowa City, Waterloo West East Sioux City and other powerfu . outfits from competing in the state meet, yet permitted such woefully weak fives as Quasqueton, Van Meter and Matoy to perform in Iowa's greatest meet. * * * "FOR THAT matter. Ottumwa had no particular business playing in a. state carnival when such teams as Burlington and Iowa City couk not. To put the pointing digit square ly on the nail head as regards th state joust of 1936, it was one of the most poorly-balanced meets of history, when a bit more care by the association moguls in lining up districts could just as well have made the finest ever held in Hawkey e- "SINCE THIS has developed into a 'point-Che-finger-of-scom,' column we can't mark finis to it without another, slap at the officiating rampant at the 1936 state classic Since 1925 we have annually sat in on state prep classics. In no other previous year can we recall when the whistle-tooting so got under our hide that we had trouble refraining; from grabbing a chair and tossing it in the general direction of some striped shirted musician. * « * THEY NOT only were away too strict with their calling fouls, making free throw contests of the games rather ' than basketball battles, but time and again placed the burden of play on the defensive men tinder the hoop when it should have been on the man with the ball. Time after time dribblers were permitted to crash into guards stationed under baskets, where they had a right to be, only to have the foul called on the defensive man for blocking."

It is my sincerest hope and the ambition of every member of the Reds to finish in the first division. We. arc e-oizi"- to make a determined effort to finish fourth. "Regardless of where we finish, I am sure we have a much improved balj club and at the finish of the season will show a lot more games won that last season. One thing that should be helpful in getting away to a flying start is the superior condition of the team. There is no doubt in my mind that as a result of our preliminary work in Puerto Rico, under perfect climatic conditions, we are farther along than the rest of the clubs. "This superior condition, particularly as to our pitchers, should make itself felt before June first. I am hopeful that we get away to a flying start, capitalize on our superior condition and then doggedly hang on in an effort to stick in the first division.
