10 SATURDAY, MARCH 11, 1939 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE GIobe*Gazette Sports TALL LADS SET IN A, A, II, TEST 55 Teams to Battle for National Honors in Gigantic Contest By WILLIAM H. DOWNS United Press Staff Correspondent DENVER, (U.R)-- Tall boys- hundreds of them--began to walk the streets Saturday, getting themselves accustomed to the mountain atmosphere before participating in basketball's big show, the national A, A, U. tournament. Fifty-five teams already had entered and tournament officials believed the number would swell to 60. Play begins Sunday shortly after dawn and continues until Saturday night, March 18, when the two survivors square off for the national championship. Emphasis on height was the reason for a preponderance of tall boys. Emphasis on speed caused the early arrival of most squads. A mere six-footer to the A. A. U. crowd is a shorty, and must b« very good to ke«p company with the giants who surround him. In the modern, fast-breaking- play, coaches train their players like prizefighters. They sent them out into the rarlfied air so they could become acclimated before their first tournament assignment. The player who becomes winded before the. final gun may be packing his grip to go home, with his team mates. Only the squads with stamina can keep pace in the nightly whirl, in which the list of survivors is halved each ' session. As usual, the "other teams" will be gunning lor the seeded favorites--members of the Missouri Valley A. A. U. league. The league has produced the championship team almost every year since it was organized, and it is rare that one of its representatives loses before the quarter-final. This year, fan sentiment is concentrated on three league teams, the Denver Nuggets, the BartlesviUe, Okla., Phillips Oil- ers and the Oklahoma City Parts Clothiers. They were the standouts during the Missouri Valley leajrue season and unless there is a tremendous upset, one will capture the title. The tournament is without a defending champion. The 1938 winners, the Healey's of Kansas City, Kans., disbanded after the tournament and players joined other teams. Notre Dame Tops in Hopes for Win Over Central Meet Foes SOUTH BEND, Ind., (U.R)--Notre Dame's defending champions, with 10 men qualified in six events requiring trials, were favorites to win the thirteenth annual central collegiate conference indoor track title in Notre Dame fieldhouse. The Irish easily led in numbers, but the threat still was Pittsburgh. Johnny Woodruff, Pitt's Olympic veteran, won his trial heats in the 440-yard dash and 830-yard run with little difficulty. He apparently was sound again after being forced out of competition by a sprained ankle. Wilbur Greer, Michigan State's great sprinter, seemed to be coasting home in 6.3 seconds, then 6.2 seconds in his trial heats o£ the 60 yard dash, indicating ho may equal a world record if he is pushed in the finals Saturday. It easily was the best performance of. the first day. Iowa Athletes Play 14 Conference Foes IOWA CITY-- Hawkeye teams ·will compete in 19 home events during the University of Iowa's spring season in four sports, 'with 14 of the affairs against Western conference foes. The complete spring schedule shows that the lowans open April 17 with the first of two baseball games with Purdue and close June 3 when Wisconsin plays the ball team in a feature event of alumni day. Ten baseball games, four tennis and golf meets, and one track contest comprise the schedule. The iirst four golf meets are at home and the last eight baseball games will be played on the Hawkeye diamond. Catcher Giuliani Has Job of Interpreter ORLANDO, Fla., (U.PJ--Manager Bucky Harris of the Washington Senators has found the answer to his lingual difficulties with his Spanish speaking players which include Roberto Ortiz, Alex Alexandra, Sene Monteagudo and Bobby Estalella. It turns out that his second string catcher, Angelo Giuliani, of Italian ancestry, learned Spanish in college. That asset may keep him his job so that he can act as interpreter for Harris. Giuliani was expected to be hard-pressed for his post by some heavy hitting rookie catchers. Pytlak and Hemsiey Vie for Catching Job NEW ORLEANS, (U.R)--Specula- tion increased Saturday with the presence of the Cleveland Indians' -pint-sized catcher, Frankie Pytlak, over whether he or Rollie Hemsiey will draw the first- Btring assignment. PyUak was reticent, tut Hems- 3ey has asked for "general assignments" which means he wants iirst call. The tribe had their tonsils examined Friday. Al Milnar, young hurler, will make his first start Sunday against the Jersey City Skeeter*-. Pedro Montanez Has 43rd Win in Record NEW YORK, (U.R)_Pedro Montanez, campaigning for a shot at Henry Armstrong's welterweight title, scored a five-round technical knockout over Jackie (Kid) Berg of England Friday night. It was Montanez' forty-third victory in 44 starts in this country. The Puerto Rican began beating the veteran Berg badly about the head from the first round, and it was apparent the Englishman could not last the distance taking that kind of punishment. A A, long right to the jaw floored Berg r in the fifth. ] Feud Fails to Show as Don Budge Romps Through Fred Perry NEW Y O R K , (U.PJ-Donald Budge and Fred Perry moved to Boston Saturday for the second stop on their transcontinental tennis tour. Budge, to the surprise of no one, was* one up aiter a straight set 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 victory in the inaugural match in the semi-privacy of Madison Square Garden Friday night. It had been billed as a "shooting match," A feud, hotter than any in the West Virginia halls, was supposed to be on. All week they had pitched around nasty words about each other's games and the customers came hoping for action. Unfortunately for the promoters, the feud did not break, out on the court. And the slim crowd of about 8,000 which paid $14,000, seemed disappointed. Budge was the master all the way, licking Perry even more handsomely than he did Ellsworth Vines in January. Glenn Cunningham to Try for Epic Double NEW YORK, C/P)--A better pair of legs than Miss America's will bring Glenn Cunningham into Madison Square Garden Saturday for the last time this season. Before they take him out again, those galloping gams should have carted the master miler to an epic track "double." Last Saturday the I. C. 4-A.'s Asa Bushnell got the old man to run two miles instead of one, and the old man got his brightest hand of the winter for beating the country^ best three at the distance. This time Prank Brennan, who runs the Knights of Columbus carnival, has asked Glenn to run 1,000 yards before going into his mile routine. Recruit Bell Rumored to Oust Paul Waner SAN BERNARDINO, Cal., (U.R) --Manager Pie Traynor of the Pittsburgh Pirates stated Saturday that Recruit Fern Bell "doubtlessly" would replace Veteran Paul Waner in the Buc right field. Traynor boosted young Bell's stock when questioned about lack of word from Waner, who is a holdout at Sarasota, Fla. because of a $5,500 salary cut. In the meantime. President Bill Benswanger of the Pirates and Gus Suhr, a holdout, scheduled another conference for Saturday. Hoosiers Lead Way in Big Ten Matches CHICAGO, (U.R) -- Qualifying men for the finals in six o£ eight weight divisions, Indiana became a strong favorite Saturday to win the Big Ten wrestling championship. Indiana placed men in the finals of every division but the 145- pound and heavyweight class. Mninesota was second among the qualifiers with four, Illinois and Michigan had two each, Iowa and Ohio State had one each. Four Schools Shoot at Big Six Mat Top AMES. (#·)--Four Big Six schools went after the conference wrestling championship here Saturday with Iowa State and Kansas State each carrying two points gained in Friday night's preliminaries. Nebraska picked up one point in the preliminaries, but Oklahoma, the 1938 champion, failed to score. Iowa State had seven qualifiers for the championship round, Kansas State five and Nebraska and Oklahoma two each. Frasier, Rigner to Hurl for White Sox PASADENA. Cal., (U.P.I--Man- ager Jimmy Dykes nominated Vic Frasier and Johnny Rigney Saturday to pitch for his White Sox at Los Angeles next Friday in the opening game of the spring series with the Chicago Cubs. Dykes ordered light workouts for a few days for Outfielder Gerald Walker, influenza convalescent who arrived Friday, a week later than the rest of the squad. LIFE OF POPE PIUS XII PART II IN JULY, 1333, Cardinal FacelU negotiated the concordat with Nazi Germany, another achievement of his diplomatic career. The next year. Cardinal FacelU went to Buenos Aires, Argentina, as pontifical' legate to the Eucharistic conEressHhere. THE FtJTUBB POPE came to the United States in 1936 to, In his own words, "see with rains own eyes this great anfl powerful nation." Among cities he visited were Washington, New rork, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago ana San Francisco. AMONG the four American cardinals the future pontiff visited was the late Patrick Cardinal Hayes of New York, whose successor Pope Pim XII must name. He also visited Cardinals Mundelein, O'.C'onnell ana Dougherty of Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia, respectively AFTER a nation-wide tour which took bun to the Pacific coast, Cardinal PaceiU returned east and, shortly before sailing, was a luncheon guest of President Roosevelt at the Roosevelt estate at Hyde Park, 3V. Y. CARDINAL PACELU and Pope Pius XI were close Mends and the pontiff was said to have regarded the cardinal as his potential successor. When death came, Feb. 9, 1939, to Pirn M, Cardinal Pacelll assumed temporary charge ol the affairs of the Vatican. THE COLLEGE of cardinals convened in the Vatican, March I, to elect a new pontiff. On the third ballot, March 2 (his 63rd birthday). Cardinal PaceiU received the necessary two- thirds vote. The new pope took the name or Pins Xn In honor of his predecessor. A WORKER for peace for many years It was fitting that Pope Plus XIPs first radio address to the world was to all nations to bring about lasting peace. His words came as especially timely owing- to the currently critical European situation.. This Week's Safety Lesson One of a series of 1 5 to be broadcast over KGLO by the ' Clausen-Warden post of the American Legion each Thursday evening. Mason City high school students will draw on this material for weekly classroom discussions By JOHN WALLACE, .Safety Di- rector Mason City Police Department LESSONS 6 AND 7 While it may not seem true, an old car of aged design may be a lot safer than a brand ne\v car with a fine, shiny body. Not all of us can afford to operate a new car, however we can, all afford to have good brakes on our cars. The ability to be able to stop a car when there is an emergency to be met is the most important factor in our driving lives. A good driver lets gravity and the motor do most of his braking. He does this by slowing down before he applies his brakes. He knows that the slower the speed, the less wear and tear there will be on the brakes. The good driver on long decents and in slippery places "snubs" his jrakes, or pumps them at in- :ervals to reduce his speed without burning his tires, or having them develop enough friction to skid. There is considerable variation in friction-between different surfaces. It is useful to have a measure of this slipperiness. Variable Braking We find that some roads have a greater amount of friction power, or braking power so far as a car is concerned than other roads do. A rough finish cement will cooperate to stop a car quicker than any other road surface; for the rest, asphalt compound, new rough brick, worn brick and gravel fall in order of importance in stopping cars. It is interesting to mow that packed snow gives us So per cent braking power, and ignt snow or ice only give us 15 per cent braking power, yet we drive comparatively the same speeds on light snow as we do on dry paving. The brakes on the average car are only 5 to 10 per cent efficient. If we had 100 per cent braking ower on every car, we would stop he moment we placed our foot on the brakes at reasonable speeds. Allowing then for inefficient road surfaces, poor tread on tires, and ·eaction time, is it little wonder hat scientists have been able to prove that the average man does not ha\^e control of his car at a speed greater than 48 miles an hour. How to Park The importance of parking cannot be emphasized too much, when we understand that it involves both safety and courtesy. When parking your car, care should be exercised that the place you choose to park does not interfere with the rights of merchants, pedestrians or other drivers. I want to call your attention to an easy way to back into a position between two cars. First: Be sure there are nearly two car lengths between the cars already parked. Run the car forward parallel to the forward of the parked cars and about a foot ahead of it, leaving about 18 to 20 inches clearance on the inside; Watch for Other'Cars Look behind on the left to see that no car is approaching and then back the car slowly toward the curb while turning the steering wheel sharply to the right. Watch the radiator of the car behind through the rear -window. As soon as it is centered on the rear of the car, stop. Turn the steering wheel sharply in the opposite direction and continue to back slowly. At this point watch the left rear fender of the car ahead for clearance. Continue backing slowly until parallel with the curb. Move the car forward until it is equidistant from the cars between which it is parked. When parked, the inside wheels should not be more than a foot from the curb. Now take your keys from your car, make sure you have locked all of the doors and you have completed your job. Parking- on Grades When you are parking on an upgrade, the front wheels should be turned sharply away from the curb. On a down grade the front wheels should be cut sharply toward the curb. A car should always be put into low gear when it is facing downhill, and into re- veree if it is facing uphill. Always make sure when -vou have finished parking that you get out of the door on your right. Too often after parking, the driver and his passengers unload from the left hand door, stepping right into the line of traffic of the oncoming car, and there is no more certain way of being struck than in this manner.
