The card also has Albia play- toe Chariton and Northwestern of Orange City tackling Tiptou. Burlington turned in the second highest score of the tournament by walloping Creston 63 to 36 in a second round game Thursday night. The southeast Iowa club jumped into the lead at the start - and never relented in piling iip its high score. It was ahead 32 to 22 . at the half and had increased its advantage, to 32 at the end ol the third period.' The scoring was well distributed, Hertzler, a center, leading with 14 points.

The oldest and surest way ol winning a basketball game put Mason City into the semifinal bracket Thursday night, as the Mohawks bowled past St. Ansgar high school. Bob BrisMne and Maurice Cooper, splitting the nets from beyond the Saint defensive lines, clinched the contest quickly, after what started to be a tough defensive session. Early fouls cost the Saints three points, and -the firing started as Cooper swished two goals from, far away. Mason City led, 12 to 3, at the first period, and 22 to 7 at the half, with Cooper scoring all his eight points in the early sessions. St. Ansgar did not score from the field until Eddie Miller scaled a high archer into the west ring in the second period. He added the Saints' only other goal a moment later. But for free throws in the last nine minutes, the Saints went scoreless the rest of the game, while Mason City was building a 33 to 8 lead at the third session's end, and a 41 to 11 final score.

One of the tightest zone defenses of the Class B tournament baffled Hansell Thursday night as the Franklin county champions slipped out of the tournament in favor of Geneseo township. A southpaw sharpshooter, Myron Thomas, who accounted for 14 points, led the winning cagers, who represent the Waterloo sector in their meet. Bob Jackson's three late goals kept Hansell in the game briefly, but a four-basket lead huilt by Thomas in the opening minutes was too much to heat. It Was Close!

Mason Cityans Win in Rockwell Scrap ROCKWELL -- Montgomery- Ward's independent basketball team of Mason City defeated Hockwell 32 to 13 here Thursday night. John Siesseger led the scoring for the Mason Cityans with 14 points. The slim marksman of Plymouth high school's lineup went right back to work Thursday night to save the tightest ball game of the entire tournament. Dale Helm, who paced his squad t h r o u g h sectional tournament play, put the- Cerro Gordo boys in the semifinals with a 10-point scoring total, and picked the tightest spots of the contest for his marksmanship display. He tied the score at 8-8 just before the half, with a one-hand poke, tied it again at 10-10 after Geneseo had counted to take a brief lead, and cracked in two more goals during the final session, to earn a 13-13 tie and a 15 to 13 lead that was unchanged by a free toss for each team. Out of the Pressbox BY AL MlTCHat AT' otes From a Big 'Evening CEDAR FALLS Friday Iowa Track Coach May Be With Team IOWA CITY, eorge Bres- LeRoy Austin Chief Cook-and-Bottle Washer Pro Tern Sports Department, Globe-Gazette Dear LeRoy: Well, there's another big evening gone into the books, watching the basketball teams battle lor district championships. And a successful one, too . . . from the old home town's viewpoint. * * » t * a Gosh, Hansell didn't have much luck with Geneseo township's zone defense in their game Thursday night. The Geneseo boys were big and plenty mobile. They play their zone back within 20 feet of the basket all the time. Of course, a long-shot expert at guard can beat a game like that. Remember what Walley Gaddis did to your alma mater in 1933? But the Hansell boys couldn't quite find the range . . . that is, until Bob Jackson cracked the west net with a 40- foot beauty, early in the second half. * * * a « * We sat in "typewriter row" Thursday night and snickered . . . every time the gim banged at the end of a quarter, a dozen or so gals down below lost their hats. * * * « s » Never have I seen so many shoe laces come untied as in the first half of the Cedar Falls-Dysart game . . . things certainly looked tough for the Tigers during the first few minutes, even though they'd started the scoring with a free throw. Harry Burrell offers another idea , . . that Dysart didn't want to waste time out periods to rest, but was stretching the time allowed for free throws by yanking the shoestrings loose. Maybe he'll quit being publicity man for State Teachers and get a job coaching, some day. * · * * » * He did say something else, too ... that, in spite of all reports to the contrary, the official paid attendance here Wednesday night was a shade over 1,500. We'd guessed that twice that many were packed into the gymnasium, but apparently everyone was shooting a little high. Figures for Thursday night showed an official paid attendance of 1,936, but there were plenty of extras , . , good seats were hard to find after the opening game was half under way, and plentiful after the first half o£ the Mohawk-Saint tussle. It was Dale Helm, the "thin man," who saved Plymouth in the neighbors' game with Orange township Thursday night . . . first he stuck away a pivot shot, and then he dribbled up for a one-handed fast pitch that spun off the backboard and fairly exploded into the net. Well, guess that takes i t . . . see you later. AL V nahan, University of Iowa track coach, said he might go to Chicago Saturday to direct the Hawkeye trackmen in the Big Ten indoor meet if he continues his present rate of recovery from an attack of influenza. He did not plan to leave with the team. Fred Teufel, dash man on the squad, also is confined to bed. DiMaggio Clouts Four Singles, Scores Four ST. PETEHSBURG, Fla., OJ.R)-- This will be the first year that Joe Di Maggio has gone through the full training season and it may send him off to his best season. In Thursday's intra-camp game he clouted four singles in five trips and scored every time he got on base to pace the Hegrigs to a 7 to 5 victory over the Dickeys. STAR TRIO TOPS BIDS OF WOLVES IN BIG TEN TEST Huskies May Shave World Records With Track Performance By STEVE SNIDER United Press Staff Correspondent CHICAGO, (U.R)--Three huskies capable' of near world record performances established Michigan an overwhelming favorite Friday to run away with its sixth straight Big Ten indoor track championship. In other'years, the secret of Michigan's dominance was sheer power in every event. The Wolverines still have it, but for added title insurance they also have Biff Bill Watson, Elmer Gedeon and Ralph Schwarzkopf--three consistent record breakers. Gedeon, long-limbed hurdler and football star, is the first of the three to face his test in the 1939 conference meet. Preliminaries in four events were scheduled Friday and Gedeon easily tops the field in the 70 yard high hurdles. Watson Nearest Record Trial heats in the 60-yard dash, 440-yard dash, and 880-yard run. also will be held. ' Of the three, Watson apparently has the best chance to set a new conference record. The Negro star, captain of the five-time champions, set the meet record of 50 feet, 4'/i inches ss a sophomore and has tossed the shot more than a foot farther in dual competition already this season. In several other meets he went over the 51-foot mark. Gedeon, heavy favorite in the hurdles, tied a world record in the Illinois Eelays last year, then won the Big Ten title despite an injury. His job of cracking the 70-yard hurdle mark is considerably harder than Watson's since the present record of .08.5, set by Lee Sentman of Illinois, has stood since 1930. It is the oldest conference record on the books. Two-Mile Mark Seen Schwarzkopf, a fine two-miler, was favored to set a new mark at his favorite distance although the defending champion and record holder will be in the race. Champion Walter Mehl, Wisconsin captain, has had better luck in the mile than at two miles this season. Schwarzkopf, with a mark of 3:15.8 to his credit, has bettered Mehl's meet record. · aiehl, however, may be the man to end Michigan's all-time record stranglehold on the team title. If he can defeat Schwarzkopf in the two mile and pick up his expected victory in the mile, Wisconsin virtually will be assured of three firsts since Milt Padway is the class of the pole vault field. Padway has come within 2% inches of the world record set in 1937 by George Varoff of Oregon. · Bowlers Open Big Tussle for A. B.C. Titles, Prize CasK CLEVELAND. (U.R1--Four complete squads of 128 teams from Dayton, Syracuse, Detroit and Cleveland, will attempt to dethrone the leading Penn Batteries, New Philadelphia, from the top spot in the American Bowling Congress y/orld championships. Performing on the curtain-raising program, the New Philadelphia entry took possession temporarily of the top spot in collecting games of 866-987-939. The 2,792 total was expected to come in for at least a small slice of the $181,000 prize melon. ' Harley Davidsons of Lima, Ohio, turned in high team game, 1017, and climbed to third berth with a 2,717 total.

KANSAS CITY, W)--The wild scramble for the Big Six basketball title, finally shared by Missouri and Oklahoma, was carried right on through the selection of the all-star teams by the 24 coaches, newspapermen and officials polled by the Associated Press. Only two players, Jimmy McNatt of Oklahoma and John Lobsiger of Missouri, were unanimous choices. Despite Homer Wesche's point making activities for the last-place Kansas State team, several of the electors favored other athletes for the pivot post. SOUTH BEND, Ind., (U.R)--A record field of 221 athletes from 15 colleges opened an assault on six of 11 meet records in preliminary heats of the 13th annua central collegiate conference in door track championships. Champions or former cham pions will compete in every even but the 60-yard high hurdles. Pittsburgh, led by Olympi veteran, John Woodruff, was strong favorite to capture th team title now held by Notre Dame. The Irish lost heavily through graduation. Woodruff, back in competition for the first time since he sprained an ankle recently, gets his first workout Friday night in preliminaries of the 440 yard dash and half-mile. He is the defending champion and again the favorite. Wilbur Greer, Michigan State's greatest sprinter, heads the 60- yard dash field in the preliminaries, Bob Shurilla of Marcjuette heads the high and low hurdle group, and Elmer Hackney of Kansas tops the shot putters. All final events will be held Saturday afternoon. 1938 Champs, Hansell Win in Iowa Test Girls' Meet Reaches Quarterfinal Round at Drake University DES MOINES, /P)--Eight girls' high school basketball teams, including West Bend, the 1938 champion, swung into the quarterfinal round of toe state championship tournament here. The 1938 titleholders, who stopped Van Meter, 41 to 29, in a first round battle Thursday night, were matched with Massena's hustling sextet. ISIassena earned its shot at the champions by edging out Ossian, 24 to 22. Sharing interest with the West Bend-Massena contest in the schedule was the Farmington- Lynnville clash. Farmington Wins Upset Farmington provided the one mild upset of the first round by defeating Akron, 32 to 26, in the opening game of the tournament. Lynnvllle pushed by Kamrar, 28 to 26, in another bitterly fought engagement. Lenox, the 1938 ruimcrup, and Hansell, a popular tournament team, will meet in the quarterfinals. They will be followed by Olin, consolation winner last winter, and Wellsburg, a frequent participant in the championship tournament. Lenox went into the quarter- mals by nipping Mallard, 37 to 5, in one 'of the most exciting ·ames of the first round. It was le first defeat of the season for lallard, which staged a remark- hie second half comeback to ome within three points of pass- ng its rival. Hansell Has Trouble Hansell also had trouble in the irst round, finally downing Eddy- viile, 34 to 25. Olin, rated highly this season, clipped Seymour, 32 to 25, and TV'eHsburg found West Des Moines a surprisingly rugged opponent, barely winning by a 35 to 34 count. Tournament officials said record-breaking crowds witnessed the first round contests, 3,500 persons attending Thursday night's session.

The 32 wlnninsr teams will shoot Into Saturday night's final rounds, out of which will come the 16 qualifiers for the championship tournament at Des Moines starting; next Thursday. The earlier schedule was dotted with engagements bringing renewals of old rivalries. Clinton and Iowa City, bitter Mississippi V a l l e y conference foes, clashed in the first district at Iowa City, the victor likely to get a shot at Fort Madison in the final round. Fort Madison had Wilton Junction for a semifinal opponent and was expected to clear that hurdle without too much trouble. Clinton Pulls Throttle Clinton, noted as a defensive power, turned to offensive tactics Thursday night to hand Fairfield a 39 to 27 setback. Iowa ?ity followed that contest with a 37 to 22 decision over Washington. Ames and Marshalltown, whose Central Iowa conference warfare extends back many years, got together again in the semifinal Class A feature at Mar- shalitown.
