By DAVE KAUFMAN (Globe-Gazelle Sports Staff) Mason City's erratic Mohawks were at their best Friday night and in a fitting farewell to the 1936-37 basketball season spanked Webster City 32 to 25 at the high school coiirt. It was the first meeting for the two clubs since the Mohawks eliminated the Lynx in the semifinals o£ the state cage tournament at Drake fieldhouse last spring. Hopes of Mob. ,wk ' fans were considerably brightened as to the prospects of the Grimsley-coached team in tournament play as a result of the Webster City game in which the-local five downed a classy quintet of Lynx. Capt. Everett Fletcher paced the Mohawks with 11 points, Wayne Wood scored eight from his guard position. Alt-State center Don Shelton dropped in 11 points to lead the Lynx attack before being ousted from the game on fouls in the early part of the final quarter. Shelton Opens Scoring. Don Shelton dribbled away to sink a setup shot for the opening points of the game, giving the visitors a 2 to 0 lead.

Marshall and Swift's took- the "forth Iowa Independent tournament crown away from Pabst's 36 o 17 at the high school court Friday night in an uninteresting, slow ganie of basketball. Never was there any doubt as o the outcome in this lifeless game of ball, with the Cleaners leading to 2 at the quarter, 21 to 9 at .he half and then loafing on to a 28-14 margin at the three-quarter mark. Harfy Cordle swished in five Buckets for .the Cleaners, Ced Connelly angled four more in and ~ene Hawk scored seven more points. Cy Kopecky, Ole Brunsvold and Ed Christiansen paced the Brewer offense. NORTHSIDERS IN SUNDAY GAMES Holy Family Basketeers to Meet Immaculate Conception, Charles City. Mason City's Holy Family cage team will entertain the Immaculate Conception five of Charles City in two games here Sunday after noon,.the first contest starting at 2 o'clock. The games will be played on the Holy Family court. As part of an elimination scries to establish the North Iowa parochial school basketball championship, it is planned by the Holy Family coach to have his team meet the St.-Cecilia, five of Algona next week.' the Webster City all-state player shoved another one in, gaining sweet retribution for the manner in which his play was overshadowed by Howard Stoecker and his teammates, as the Mohawks elimi- ·nale'd Webster City from the state tournament semifinals at Des Moines last spring. Howard Gorman inade good on a pair o£ free throws when fouled by Dick Fleicher, Lynx guard, Max Doolittle, visiting forward, dropped in a charity toss when fouled by Mason City's Wayne Wood. Ralph Burton broke in fast to sink a short shot for Webster City, giving the Lynx a 7 to 2 lead and causing the Mohawks to call time out. Captain Everett Fletcher swished a fieldgoal in from back court as the teams resumed play, but Bob Ostlund retaliated with a short goal and made a free throw given him when, fouled by Fletcher on the shot. George Wood kept Mason City in the battle with a long shot from'sidecourt. Lynx Ahead 11 to 6. All-Stater Shelton, fouled by Fletcher, dropped in one o£ a pair of charity shots and the Lynx- boasted an 11 to 6 margin. The visiting pivotman, Shelton, placed two free throws through the net with uncanny accuracy when Fletcher fouled hjm. Wayne Wood broke in for a setup on an out-of- bounds play to score for Mason City. George Wood eluded Fletcher and slipped under the basket to count two points as the quarter ended with Mason City trailing the visitors 13 to 10. Confusion concerning seating arrangements held up the game as spectators were crowded on to the floor. With play finally resumed, Captain Fletcher netted a beautiful long shot. Wayne Wood put Ihe Mohawk's ahead for the first time in the game, dropping in long one from the side. On a "sleeper" which completely foolcc: the Lynx, Gorman took a pass tc drop a setup through the net and Captain Fletcher followed through with a long one from back court 'boosting the Mohawks into an If to 13 lead. Mohawks In Lead. Webster City finally scored during the quarter as D o o l i t t l e slipped under the net for a setup Ralph Burton p l a c e d a one- handed shot through the net for the Lynx. Fouled by Doolittle Gorman scored twice via the free throw route and Mason City was leading 20 to 17. Tauntingly teasing the Lynx with their passing the Mohawk attack was interrupted by Shelton, who broke up a pass from Wood, but Referc Clyde Kinu called a double fou on Ihe Lynx center and Bob Cookman, both making their free shots Don scored another free throvi Court House Rats at Top of Bowling Lists ALGONA -- The Court House Rats continued to lead the Kossuth county bowling league teams by a five game margin at the end of this week's play.

By SID FEDEK NEW YORK, (.I 3 )--Adding another worry to a heavyweight situation slowly growing daffy with its burdens, Maxie Baer planned Saturday to head tor Europe in spite of the latest decision 'of New York state's unpredictable athletic commissioners. Although the commission reversed itself and granted the playboy puncher a boxing license and a sanction to meet Bob Pastor for Madison Square garden, Baer apparently isn't having any. London motion picture offers and a promised night club contract, piled on top of a guarantee o£ 4,500 pounds for a couple of fights in the British capital, apparently proved too much of an inducement for the ex-heavyweight Icing. In spite of possible legal action by the garden, his plan is to sail for England on the Ber- engeria next Wednesday. Says It's a "Runout." Jimmy J o h n s t o n , Madison Square garden promoter, claims such an action on Baer's part would constitute a "runout" from the Pastor fight. Baer maintains, however, that the garden's failure to obtain commission sanction of the Baer-Pastor go by Feb. 10, stipulated in their agreement, automatically cancels any obligation. The British interests, headed by Brig. Gen. Alfred Cecil Critchley, contend Baer's contract with them, which they say was signed lasl October, makes the garden's agreement just so much scrap paper. Walked Out on Meeting. Baer said he was willing to incel Pastor and, from his training base at Madame Bey's camp in Summit N. J., came word he would even entertain Pastor .there as a sparring mate. However, he will abide by the decision o£ his manager Ancil Hoffman. The commission's latest action came after Wednesday's stormy session, when Baer walked out o the meeting after Commissioner Bill Brown referred to him as "a couple of bums." He did not obtain cither a license or the Pastoi bout sanction then. The commission went into a secret get-together Friday and came up with both. Neither Baer no Hoffman was present, and were somewhat surprised at the action Hoffman, however, insisted th commission's about-face would di nothing to .alter the London figli plans. .271 .J»2 lima Cagers Defeat Rudolphinum 32-23 PROTIVIN--In a doubleheader between the Protivin and Elma teams Friday night, the Elma cagers defeated Rudolphinum 32 .0 23. The local second team also .ost to Elma, 44 to 4. and Gorman missed Cor Mason ity on another double foul as the lalf ended. The foul was called Because of threatening gestures between the opposing caRers. Mason City held a 21 to 19 lead at iialftime. Burton netted a free throw when Cookman fouled him. Wayne Wood banged one in from long distance range to keep the Mo- nawks in the lead 23 to 20. Cap- bain Fletcher breezed the net with another long distance special as the Mason City club hit its hottest pace of the season. George Wood bucketed a one-handed shot from close-in to the basket. On another double foul, Wayne Wood missed but Doolittle made good on his try. Don Shelton lifted the Lynx hopes once more with a nice shot from side-court. Captain Fletcher bounced one in from back-court to give Mason City a 29 to 23 margin. Gorman missed a setup as the quarter ended. Mason City still ahead 2!) to 23. Alt-Stnter Leaves Game. Don Shelton was given a big h a n d as he left the game when he fouled Howard Gorman tor his fourth black mark of the contest. Fletcher scored on his free attempt when Booye, Shelton's sub, fouled him. Webster City had shifted from a zone to a man-for- man defense. Wayne Wood broke in to sink a one-handed attempt from close-in and give the Mohawks a 32 to 23 lead. Bob Cookman left the game on four fouls and Leland Huff replaced him at forward. As the game progressed, getting rougher with each moment of play, Captain Fletcher left the contest, also on four fouls and Bob Brisbine took his place in a back- post. Under the basket, Osthmcl dropped a setup through the net seconds before the f i n a l gun (o leave the Lynx behind 32 to 25 in w h a t was the f i n a l game of the season for both quintets.

SEVERAL CLASSY CONTENDERS IN FOURTH DISTRICT Newton, Grinnell, Perry and DCS Moines Schools in Same District. By I,. E. SKELLEY DES MOINES, (fP) -- lowa'o ourth basketball district--home of the present state champion-may produce another title winder but it's almost a certainty hat Ames will not repeat its 1936 conquest. Graduation losses wiped out \mes' 1936 starting lineup, and he 1937 squad by no means approaches in skill the group which swept through the field last year o the championship. Coach Hay Donel's team prob- ibly will skip through the Colo sectional next week without too mieh trouble, but the Little Cyclones aren't expected to last 'ong in the district meet. There are too many exceptional class A. teams in the fourth dis- .rict for Ames to earn another trip to Des Moincs for the state finals, March 18, 19 and 20. Many Good Teams. Newton, Grinnell, Boone, Perry, Roosevelt and North of Des Moines are the class A teams considered to have too much on the for Ames to win the district title. Newton's Cardinals, winner of the Central Iowa conference, which has produced the state champion and runner-up for the last two years, looks like the victor in its own sectional. Grinnell, however, presents a serious problem. The Cardinals were hard pressed to whip the Little Pioneers by one point margins twice this winter. Tireless Bill Green, high scoring forward in the mid-state loop, may prove the deciding factor for Newton. He has pulled several games into the win column for the Cardinals this season. MllclicUvillc a Standout. Mitchell villa's great team is the standout in class B at New- Ion. Coach Jack Pence has one of the best small town basketball teams in the state. Rugged exponents of the dribble and fast break, Mitchellvillc's youngsters have lost only one game. Boonc, staggered by mid-year graduation, may have enough left to win class A honors at Perry, but Ihe home lowners are going to have a lot to soy about the final award. Jordan, Boonc county chani- lion, rates Ihe first choice in class at Perry, but Napier and Sla- er arc dangerous. North and Roosevelt of Des iloines are down for a terrific Battle in the Des Moincs sectional. Each has lost only two games his year. Roosevelt licked North, 27 to 26, early in the season, but he Polar Bears won a later ;ame, 3] to 27. Averages 11.5 Each Game. Ed Beisser of North, {i feet, M/j inches, is one of the best cen- ,ers in the state, and has averaged 11.5 points a game. Oskaloosa, a Central Iowa conference team, leads the entries in ,he class A division at Knoxville, md Indianola holds a similar po- iition in Wintersct's class A. Van Meter, a 1336 finalist, robably will lake class B laurels it Wiittcrsel, but it is not as good last year and likely will lose T; !·: :m ..w;i out if it advances to the district ;:i :n .r,K tournament. Churdan apparently has tire edge on a large field in its own jlass A meet. Trouble will come, however, from several bitter rivals, Paton, Jefferson and Lake City. Cowrie, Stratford and Lohrvillo are entered in class A at Gowriu with no particular favorite among the three teams. Tourneys Nearing End Finals for Girls' Sectional and County Meets Close at Hand.

GARNER -- As the Hancock county tournament' went into the semifinals here Saturday afternoon, the team that considered itself most fortunate for still being in the running was Kanawha, following its 16 to 15 win over Co's- tal Lake Friday afternoon. The two other contests ended with more decisive margins for the winners. Corwith had little trouble in eliminating Corwith, 44 to 26, aand Goodcll, defending Hancock champions, had it pretty much their own way in defeating Klemme, 30 to 23. With its wide victory margin against Woden, Corwith was upholding its reputation for a possible surprise team in the Hancock title race this year. CIIAKLES CITY B's MEET KOCKFORD FIVE MARBLE ROCK--Floyd county is bound to have a new basketball championship team, following the defeat Friday evening of Nora Springs, last season's title winner, by the Charles City "B" team, 20 to 14.

Northwood Cagers End Conference Schedule by Beating Belmond NORTHWOOD -- Northwood's high school cagers drew the curtains on their regular North Iowa conference schedule Friday night by taking the Belmond quint into camp to the tune oC 2(i to 15. The game was slow and uninteresting. Northwood held a 19 to 9 lead at the hall time and its margin was never endangered. High point man for the home team was Carl Mueller with eight points. D. Peterson was the leading scorer for the losing visitors with five points. Northwood suffered only two defeats in its conference campaign this season, both of them administered by the Buffalo Center cag- ers. NORTHWESTERN QUINTET DOWNS JAYSEES 55-33 Superior Height of Orange City Team Too Much for Locals. M A R S H A L LTOWN--Norlh- westt?rn of Orange City moved into the finals of the state junior college tournament Saturday with a 55 to 33 victory over Mason City, thereby proving that" a good big team can always beat- a good little team. Superior height proved the downfall of Mason City's luckless Trojans, whose heretofore successful offense had overpowered Ma- quolteta and Emmetsburg to earn a spot in the semifinals. Friday night the Trojans were in fine form as they won from Emmetsburg's jaysees 46 to 36. Lee Usher led the Mason City offense, scoring 22 points, while Gale Lane accounted for 16 markers before being ousted from the game on fouls. Emmetsburg fought gamely to stay in the running for the junior college cage crown, but its defensive lapses lost the game. Doug Firkins played the best game for the losing quintet. A play by play account of the scmitinal game follows: FIRST QUARTER Lee Usher was guilty of a foul in the early minutes and Brunsting sank the free throw to give the rangy Northwestern team the first point, and seconds later George Vanderberg sank one from the field to give the Orange City quintet a 3 to 0 lead. Merlin Krali tossed a one-handed shot in from rnidcourt to boost the Northwestern lead to 5-0. George Vanderberg shoved a two-handed shot in from closein to make it 7 to 0 for Northwestern. Usher passed to Gale Snell on an out-of-bounds play and the Trojan forward bucketed it for Mason City's first points. Merlin Kraii's one-handed shot from the center of the free throw circle was good, and another from the same spot gave the Orange City forward two fieldgoals in a few seconds and left the Trojans trailing 11 to 2. Mason City called time out tu devise a method to stop the lanky Northwestern cagors. Gale Lane took an out-o£- bounds pass from Sheckler and angled it. into the basket for a Trojan goal. Fouled by Red Kraii, Usher bounced a free shot in. Red Kraii dropped a one-handed shot through the net for Orange City, making it 13 to 5 against Mason City. Paul Braham, went in tor Henry Hert at guard for the Trojans just as the first quarter ended. SECOND QUARTER Loren Sheckler scored for Mason City as the quarter opened. Four Mason Cityans Win in Mat Meet Tom Rutneliote, Leewright, Calicchia and Orm Thompson Victors. FORT DODGE--Mason City's quartet of prep grapplers preserved its strength intact here Saturday in the first round of the Iowa high school wrestling tournament. Only Fort Dodge, defending state champions, arid Clarion, ranking challenger, went into the semifinals with more men than Howard Barker's team. Tom Rumcliote, 1936 145 pound champion and favorite to cop the 155 pound crown this year, had an easy time of it in his match with Easier of Cresco.. Ilumoliote had a substantial time advantage at the close of the bout. Leewright Wins. Bill Leewright, l midget member of the Mason City contingent, and most feared title aspirant in the 105 pound division, scrapped to an easy win over E. Welch er o f East DCS Moincs F ri d a y. L e e- wrighl got the advantage a n d pressed all the way for a fall, Welcher concentrating his energies in avoiding t h c fall. Lee- Wright's time advantage was four RUMELIOTE minulea and 10 seconds. Orin Thompson, Mohawk 115 pounder, won an up and down match with W. Sleezer of Cherokee in one of the closest first round battles. Thompson eked out a time advantage of one minute and 25 seconds. The grapplers traded the upper position half a dozen times, but the Mohawk matman was able to stretch his turns in the saddle for longer intervals than his Indian rival. Orlando Caiicchia, Mason City 115 pounder, won a hard grind from Funk of West Waterloo. Calicchia held the advantage from the start but Funk, stubbornly resisting a fall for seven minutes, Calicchia's advantage was 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Nashua Court Quintet Loses Final Game of Season to Tripoli NASHUA--In the last regularly scheduled game of the season the Nashua baskclecrs bowed to Tripoli Friday night by the count of ·11 to ID.
