THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 1939 Preps Face Tough List of Contests Second Section Squads Ready to Enter Title Tilt By IKE SKELLEY DBS MOINES, (IP)--The first round of the boys' district high school basketball tournament play was completed Thursday to set the stage for anticipated bitter semifinal engagements Friday night, The district firing opened on the eight fronts Wednesday night with 32 games involving: 64 of the 128 teams that survived the sectional tournaments last week. The second section of 64 teams went into the trenches Thursday to settle their first round arguments. Outstanding games are listed all along the battlefronts. Particular attention will be focused upon Sac City's encounter with Central of Sioux City at Orange City in the eighth district. The winner probably will tangle with Sibley's powerhouse Saturday night to de;ermine the district's Class A representative at the championship :ournament at Des Moines next weekend. ·Sibley Wallops Spencer Sibley, rated as a most dangerous threat to either Sac City's [ndians or the Sioux City club, gave future rivals an indication of what to expect when the lanky northwesterners walloped Spencer, 36 to 17, Wednesday night. Spencer didn't score a point while Sibley counted 21 points in the Eirst 14 minutes. Fort JIadison, powerful Class A team at Iowa City, started its drive with a 44 to 24 victory over little Danville, appearing in the A division for the first time this year. Most of the other Class A teams also moved along as expected, although Grinnell became a mild upset victim by locing to Centerville, 26 to 22, in the second district meet at Marshalltown. Holfe, Roosevelt of Des Moines, Fort Dodge, Belle Plaine, Abraham Lincoln, Charles City and Perry were among popular Class A teams to advance.' Diagonal on Hot Pace Diagonal, the 1938 champion, continued its hot scoring pace to head the list of Class B schools. The Maroons tromped over Menlo, 54 to 22, in the third district aj Creston where fans saw the one real upset of the night, Mitchellville's 19 to 18 victory over Sheldahl. The latter had been expected to clash with Diagonal in the semifinals. Earlville s t i f l e d Andrew's hopes, 31 to 29, in an overtime game in the fifth district at Cedar Rapids. McGregor, Jolley, Bathbun, Los Nation, Everly and Yarmouth other Class B favorites, took the first round in stride. . Replacement Find Is Claimed by Harris ·.

Three North Iowa Teams Stumble Comet Five Has Huge Edge in Opening Tilt Hanlontown Loses, Orchard, Hampton Out of Contests By AL MITCHELL Globe-Gazette Sports Editor CEDAR FALLS--Three North Iowa high school basketball teoms itumbled and fell out of the march :o\vard the state prep title here Wednesday night, in the lid-tip- ing program for Disrict No. 6 of he Iowa series. One squad remained in action by beating a neighbor school, as Charles City's favorite Comets romped past Hampton in the Class A bracket, 49 to 13. Hanlontown's Class B squad slipped out o£ action before a stinging fast break that put Hubbard on top by 39 to 27. Orchard nearly overhauled the perennially strong Tripoli team in he other Class B contest, rallying n the late third and early fourth periods to cut down the Brcmer county team's lead from 10 to four points, but lapsed defensively in an over-eager attempt to catch its foes and lost, 27 to 18. Waverly's big Go-Hawks had lit:le trouble with Reinbeck in the Inal Class A contest, winning 30 ;o 10 from the Grundy county boys. Charles City High Rolls Up Early Lead In Game Charles City's giant passes, plus Comet speed and height, were too oig a problem for Hampton. Maurice Meurer stepped away from the defense twice to score short setups in the opening minutes, cashed in a goal and free throw for three more points, as Charles City built a 15 to 2 lead in the first period. Howard Walton included a pair of goals in the Comet total. The slim marksman had totaled seven goals and a free toss at the halftime, while Charles Harrison's pair of free throws had been the only Bulldog scoring. The Comet margin was 27 to 2. Hampton counted its first field- goals in the third period, as the Comet lineup was shuffled and re-shuffled. Meanwhile the winners were counting 13 more points, with Charles McGreevey tossing in two goals. The score was 40 to 9 at the end. Tom Clammer's goal and pair of free throws counted most as the Comets pushed the final score to 49 to 13 in the session. Harrison picked up Jour points, including one goal, for Hampton. Bob Bizer Leads Hubbard Fast Hanlontown Cagers A pint-sized forward wreckec the hopes., :pf .Hanlontown. high school, as Bobby Bizer, Hubbarn midget, scored Iff points and harried the Worth county boys from start to finish on defense. Hanlontown had fallen behind 8 to 4, as the first quarter closec with Hubbard's stinging fas break adding the final basket, with elongated George Gerlach shoving the ball in. It was the second time the bespectacled pivotman had counted at close range. A long shooting session under the Hanlontown basket found the Worth county team short on luck in the late period. Bizer had marked up five of his goals by the end of the first half, flipping in one pair during the opening minutes of the second auarler, and another brace late in the period. Harold Fields' long shot from the sideline set the midway score at 19 to 13 for Hubbard, after Carl Furness' had found the range with two pivot shots. Furness led a third-period drive that once cut the Hubbard margin to three points, as he scored twice from the court and once from th free throw line. The Hubbard margin was 28 to 20 as the quarter closed, however. Bizer cracked the nets twice in the last session, Jim Dougan adding a pair of goals also, to help the final, 39 to 27 margin. Orchard Bally Fails With Late-Victory in Sight Orchard high school's anxious pressing zone defense cost it a chance to beat back Tripoli in the Class B bracket. Down by 10 points in the third period, the Mitchell county boys snapped into an offense that carried them within four points of Tripoli's total, at 20 to 16, early in the final quarter The Orchard zone defense was functioning neatly, drawn back under the basket, but opened up to cover half the court as il pressed out after the ball. Tripoli found a ready channel through the pivot position to count five quick points. Tripoli was paced by Gerald Niemeyer, who counted 11 points and marched through to a margin of 18 to 10 in the third period after Orchard had made the contest a point-for-point fight during the first two sessions. Tripoli had led, 5 to 4 at the quarter, and 10 to 8 at the half. Henrich to Succeed Gehrig Rumor Arises ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., -That Tommy Henrich-to-succeed- Lou Gehrig thing is popping up again at the New York Yankees' training base.
