MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE GOPHER PREPS IN SCRAPS FOR TOP DISTRICT RANKS Austin High Wins, St. Paul Central Is Twin Cities' Champ MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., (U.R)-- Eleven new district champion emerged from the state higi school basketball tournament plaj Friday night, and 19 others wer to be selected in final play Sat urday in remaining districts. The district champions thus fa were Austin in the first, Kasson in the third, Mountain Lake in th s e v e n t h , Hutchinson in the twelfth, Elk River in the six teenth, Willmar in the twentieth Breckenridge in the twenty-first Sauk Center in the twenty-second Bemidji in the twenty-ninth, Ada in the thirtieth, and Thief Rive Falls in the thirty-first. Thief River Falls, state champions last year, barely squeezed out a victory over Crookston in the last half-minute of play, when a lone fielcl goal gave them a 12 to 11 win. The twin cities' championship also was decided in a bitter defensive battle, Ln which the bir St. Paul Central team edged out Marshall of Minneapolis, 18 to 16. Nine of last year's distric champions fell by the waysidt and it appeared probable tha other champions would be bowlet over in Saturday night's play. Losing titles were Fairmont in the fifth district, Winona in the third, Crosby-Ironlon in the twenty-fourth, St. Cloud Tech in the nineteenth, Lester Prairie in the twelfth, and Lynd in the ninth. District champions, with St Paul Central and Minneapolis Marshall, play in eight regiona tournaments next week, from each of which will emerge a champion to compete in the state finals at St. Paul March 23, 24 and 25.

The powerful, well-balanced Wolverines, as the result o£ preliminary trials Friday night at the University of Chicago field- house, were odds-on favorites to capture the twenty-ninth annual meet--an accomplishment which would mean a twelfth major championship since Track Coach Charles (Chuck) Hoyt began tutoring the Wolverine thin clads nine years ago. Hoyt, recently named Yale university track mentor, saw nine of his athletes qualify for Saturday night's 10-event program. Wisconsin, runners-up to Michijran a year ago and expected to press Michigan most closely, advanced five men to the finals, as did Iowa and Indiana. Ohio placer! four, Minnesota three and Illinois, Chicago, Northwestern and Purdue two each. T h r e e defending champions survived an elimination program which was devoid of either rec- ord-equalling or breaking performances. Elmer Gedeon, Michigan's 60- yard high hurdles champion, won his heat handily in 8.7 seconds Carl Teufel, of Iowa, 440-yard dash titleholder, won his semifinals heat in 50.2 seconds, while John Davenport of Chicago, sprint · champion, qualified by placing second to Robert Ashley of Illinois in a 60-yard dash trial. Mesner and Gleeson Brighten Cub Hitting AVALON, Cal., (U.R)--The hitting of Rookie Steve Mesner and Jim Gleeson brightened the Chicago Cubs spring training camo Saturday. , Mesner hit a homer and two singles and Gleeson had a homer and a single in the first Cubs- Yannigans game. Rookie Ed Garnett added three singles, one of Sjv-hich drove in a run. The Yani- «f«ns won, 7 to 5. ------ I . "^^ Last-Minute Basket.

The most stubborn zone defense that Mason City has run into in tournament play nearly sent the Mohawks out.of the tournament Friday night. After an evening that saw plenty of open shots from behind the free throw circles against St. Ansgar's close-in zone the Mason Cityans weren't prepared for the Tiger style of play. The local team, pressing out beyond effective shooting range, and hurrying every attempt by Blason City, nearly broke the Mohawk's hearts. Cedar Falls went ahead at the quarter, 7 to o, as husky Bob Bigler dribbled in to add the final basket, then hiked into an 11 to 6 lead as Delbert Mully rolled in his third goal of the game, a fast pitch from the free throw circle. Capers Crash in Second During the early minutes of ULK second period, Jim Humphrey am Bigler crashed together, the Ma son Cityan being forced out of action by a deep, nose-cut. . John McNabb pushed the Tiger edge to 16 to 10 at the half with a free toss and two quick baskets at short range, while Bill Colloton counted a goal and two free tosses for the Mohawks. McNabb, Bijrler and John Galloway opened fire as the Tigers came back to the second half under full speed, and gained a 22 to 10 lead within seconds after the tipoff. Only one more Cedar Falls goal was scored in the contest after the trio connected, however. Cooper connected twice with an angle shot and a dribble-in setup while Colloton drove under the' boards for another goal and Humphrey put away three of four free chances. The score as the third period ended was 23 to 19. Too Biff to Beat? A lead that looked too bi" to beat went up early in the fourth period, as Cedar Fails scored on a wide-open shot by Galloway and Mully counted from the free throw line. The margin was 27 to 21, as Cedar Falls ended its scor- ng. Set plays were forgotten Ty the Mohawks a s they turned loose their finishing sprint. A fast break produced one goal as Don Pickeli lipped ,'n a rebound, and the Mason Cityans trailed by only a point as Cooper rolled in a running- shot from full speed. Pickeli started the winning toss at the backboard with less than 30 seconds left to play, but it vas Brisbine who took a short re- ound and popped it into the west asket Cooper's, free throw in the final breath added a point to make the final score 29 to 27,.

A first half that saw the score tied three times, with Waverly in the lead briefly at the start, plus a pair of late periods that saw the Go-Hawks all but come out from under a nine-point lead, made th contest a thriller.

Veteran tournament followers believe that the 3,234 total of the Birk Brothers, Chicago, established last year at Chicago; the doubles high, 1,415, rolled by Gillie Zunker and Frank Benko- Milwaukee, at Columbus in Hard to Take The little matter of a 5-7 spli on the last ball kept Hans G Pusch, local bowling alleys man ager, from rolling a perfect 300 game Friday, afternoon. His 298 was rolled across two alleys, with John Dana, Gus Kol! and Earl Ratliff in the cheerin section. 1933; Larry SholwelTs 774 blast rung up at the last tourney here m 1930, and Maxie Stem's 2,070 all-events count, set two years ago at New York, likely will be dwarfed when the tournament closes May 5. There is plenty of action in the current classic and the early scoring has been far above the average. In hitting 1,307 on the inaugural card in the minor event competition. Friday, Victor Maurer and Alex Graham, New Philadelphia, Ohio, scored a total which finished fifth last year at Chicago. The 1939 event has 56 days, to go. Maurer, former footbal and basketball coach at Ohio State, turned in a 654 while his partner was adding 653, for a one- pin "ride." It was the highes total ever scored on a curtain- raising card. Booster teams monopolized the drives Friday night and 850-and under lineups from 23 cities and seven states again will take th spotlight Saturday night.

Four teams, including West Bend and Lenox, the one-two teams of 1938; remained in the running for the title and were down for bitter semifinal games to decide the championship game participants. ' West Bend drew Lynnvllle for its semifinal foe and Lenox had Wcllsburc to conquer before reaching another title contest. The champions were expected to get by Lynnville but there ivas considerable doubt that Lenox could subdue Wellsburg's nifty sextet. The 1938 titleholders, paced by Betty Lou Walker who counted 20 points, reached the semifinals with a 41 to 21 victory over Mas sena. The tight defensive work o West Bend's guards was a featur of the contest. Lynnville eliminated Farmington, 29 to 24. It was almost a personal triumph for Ruth Petersma The ace forward flipped in 24 points to tie the total Farmineton output. Wellsbnrjr shattered Olin's hones.
