MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 2 1936 THIRTEEN CARDS FAVORED IN NATIONAL LOOP RACE Out of the Pressbox --By Al Mitchell- STEFFING STONE. THERE' A LOT of satisfaction for me . . . and for Coach Clayton "Chick" Sutherland of Mason City high school . . . in the fact that Cliff Hathaway has been given a chance to play organized baseball. He loves the game . . . he wants to play baseball m^re than do anything else. And I know that no one is more anxious to see him making the grade in the professional game than his former coach. * * * MY OWN satisfaction comes through the fact that the Mason City boy started playing baseball with, an American Legion Junior team . . . even thotngh the primary aim of the American Legion program is not the building of professional players. * # * NEITHER IS the teaching of baseball a primary objective in the junior program . . . the goal sought is the training of boys' minds .. . the directing of their leisure into healthy interests. But . . . the American Legion game can't be beaten as a stepping 'l stone into the organized leagues. For instance, Phil Cavaretta, young star with the Chicago Cubs last season, said this before he left for / 1 ( \ spring training camp this year: "I think American Legion baseball is one of the greatest things |y.« \ for a young kid coming up in the i/V \ game, because I really know it gave l-^VVme my start, and can do the same 'tor someone else. My advice is for a kid to play American Legion base- · - " -'· ·-- ------- *- ball if he expects where . to get any- THEY STILL, TALK THE SDDELINERS are still talking about Howard Stoecker's last- second shot in the Mason City- Logan game at the state high school basketball finals Coach Dukes Duford of St. Ambrose, who insists that basketball is a "screwy" game . . . one that you can't figure out scientifically . . . says: "That shot is one you can't stop. It drops or it doesn't. . . ." * * * COACH PAUL MOON of Davenport made one terse remark: "Next year they should rule the officials must wear their whistles on their wrists--they're blowing them every time they breathe." Pops Harrison of the University of Iowa, by the way, w r as rated termined ' the four officials at the state meet-'tins year'.'';; Verle Davis of Corning; who passed up a chance to referee the national women's A. A. U. tournament to come to Des Moines . , . and should have accepted it ... replaced Harrison as No. 1 man. * * * PROBABLY THE best story produced at Des Moines has been pinned on John O'Donnell, the happy-go-lucky Davenport Irishman who handles a nice sports page for does some officiating in his spare momenta. John was calling them close at Muscatine high school one night last winter . . . did I say LAST win. POLL SHOWS CUB NINE SECOND FOR SEASON'S TUSSLE Close Battle of Ballots Has Cards Holding Edge Over Champs' Same Club. By HERBERT \V. BARKER Associated I'rcss Sports Writer NEW YORK, (fl)--A two club race for the National league pennant, with the St. Louis Cardinals dethroning the Chicago Cubs by a narrow margin, was forecast Thursday by the nation's baseball experts casting ballots in the Associated Press' tenth annual poll. In as close a battle of ballots as the poll ever has seen, 43 of the 98 sports editors and baseball writers who participated, cast their first place ballots for the "gas house gang" led by the inimitable Deans and bolstered by the off-season acquisition of LeRoy (Bud) Parmelee, fast ball right bander. Cubs Rated Second. The Cubs, who won the 1935 flag with a spectacular 21 game winning streak in the closing month of the campaign, were placed second despite the fact they will get away from the barrier two weeks hence with virtually the same array that performed so sensationally a year ago. The Cubs received 39 first place ballots but Charley Grimm's champions can take heart from the fact that the 1935 poll established the Cardinals a s favorites and ranked the Cubs no better than third. As far as the experts are concerned, only two other clubs--the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates --can be considered to have even a remote chance of figuring in the championship this summer. 13 Like Giants. The Giants were given 13 votes for first place and Pittsburgh, prospective "dark horse" of the campaign, received three. Although Cincinnati's rejuvenated Reds drew strong support, they fell behind the Brooklyn Dodgers, who were picked to head the second division. Philadelphia, although drawing votes for as high as third place, winds up as seventh place nominee in the final tally. Boston, operating under a new name as well as new management, was an over-whelming choice for the cellar. E-GAZETTE Baseball Men Start Fight to Bring Back Game MICKEY MOUSE WINS MATCHES D. K.

Then Bobby gets right into the thick of things, just as he ,!ai \ used to at Iowa . . . he plays every position from the bench. * * * LATE IN the game, John blew his whistle just as he passed the Muscatine bench. Kinnan hopped up and howled: "Toot, toot, toot, O'Donnell! Keep it up and you'll have every dog in town following you before the night's over! * * * GIVE IT TO THE BOYS! THERE'S STILL another Iowa sports editor who favors giving the state basketball tournament back to the boys who play in it ... read this from Ed Moore, Jr., of the Waterloo Courier: "One of the unfair things about the state tournament is the arrangement for taking care of the teams beaten in the first round . . the youngsters either must go home or stay at the. tournament at the expense of their school . . . the state association gives them a certain sum, in the neighborhood of .$55 for coming to the tournament and playing in the first round if a team survives its first game the sum i s hiked to approximately .$80 . it takes another jump, small to be sure, if the team reaches the round of four.

Associated 1'rcss Sports Editor AUGUSTA, Ga., (.11--While a deluge washed out the first round of the August national tournament, William Lawson Little Jr., king of the world's amateurs for the past two years, emerged Thursday as the latest notable recruit to the ranks of professional golf. In making- the big jump that took two famous championship predecessors, Robert T. Jones, Jr., and George Von Elm, from the ranks of the sirnon-pures six years ago, Little ended at the age of only 25 an amateur career that dazzled two continents in 1934 and 1935. Loses Team Captaincy. With world record streak of 31 consecutive victories in title match play, the San Francisco "siege gun" captured the American and British crowns twice in succession. His decision not only means the relinquishment of both championships, at the peak of his career, but removes his chance to captain this year's American Walker cup team. With his bride, the former Dorothy Hurd of Chicago, nodding her smiling agreement, Little declared today he was "happy in making the decision that offers the chance to get down to work." To Promote Golf. The details have yet to be worked out but he will shortly sign contracts, he said, for a long term golf promotion venture, sponsored by a national sporting goods concern. Little will be associated with Bob Jones in work which the Georgian described as "educational." Present plans call for Little to lead a touring party which will give exhibitions, show motion pictures and otherwise seek to create wider interest in golf playing. Jones will act only in an advisory capacity. The aim is to reach public courses, schools and colleges with the promotional program. Omaha League Club Asks Manager to Take Up Job OMAHA, Nebr..

"At present we are most interested in giving tho Boston public a new deal in baseball. With that idea in mind, we have changed the name of the Braves to the Bees. I realise that it is going to take more than a change in names to better the ballcluband we have such plans in mind. "Getting Catcher Lopez from Brooklyn was a real start in the right direction. Lopez, one of the best catchers in the. National league, is going to help our pitching immensely.
