It is easy to understand why Sam doesn't care -to use his last name when in the ring, but the "Battling" part of ·his name still puzzles us. The Greek didn't display anything but an. ego ·which was quickly deflated by tbe clever White. White, in much better condition than when he lost to Curly Harris in the same ring two weeks ago, took the first round by a slight margin, landing the only stiff blows of the round. He opened up his offense in the second stanza and had Sam pleading to Referee Slim Craychee to stop the fight but Slim refused and a right which sent Sam through the ropes gave the Greek ample excuse to quit. Fritz Gels Another K. O. The knockout toll for the evening was almost identical v.-ith that of the last card, hall of the. eight four rounders ending in kayoes. Five bouts were ended via the knockout route on the last card. Elmer Fritz, former Holy Family gridder, who made his debut on the last card with a two round knockout, continued his ring career successfully by putting the "sleeper" on Joe Hanson of Pipestone, Minn., after 45 seconds of the third round had · elapsed. _ . . . . Fritz actually kayoed' hi s heavier opponent twice. Submerging; the Minnesotan with an avalanche of blows balf way through the first heat, the northsider had Hanson reeling- and knocked him halfway through the strands. An excited second tossed in the towel and the round was abbreviated although Fritz had actually earned a techni- ) cal knockout. The massacre continued during the second period with Elmer making good use of his dynamite-laden fists to put Hanson through the ropes again. Offense Wins Fight. : A continuation of his effective of- i fense won for Fritz as a stiff right 1 sent Hanson through the ropes and he stayed there for keeps early in the third frame. Frank Levi of Chicago, member of the PWA carnp, earned a clear cut decision over Billy Rayfeldt, high school youngster, halting th' local boy's brief winning si Position Forward Forward Forward Center Center Guard Guard Guard Forward Forward Forward Center Center Guard .

Non-tournament stars garnered two of the eight positions on the honorary first team, announcement of the IDPA selections reveals. Four more who came no closer- to the final classic than reading about it in the newspapers were honored on the second team. Third honor squa( selections included five players whose teams fell by the wayside in the sectional and district tournaments. "Jury f t 1,000" Votes. f » « « » * » * * * * * _ Three forwards, two centers and three guards were named on each team. The association was assisted in arriving at its third annual all- state basketball selections by the "Jury of 1,000." The "Jury of 1,000," the approximate number of coaches and high school basketball officials in Iowa, was polled for all-state Sketches 10-Second Views of Honor Men. KAL.INICH.

Instead the Chicagoan did a masterful job of thoroughly covering Rayfeldt at all times and scoring consistently in every round. He had the Mason Cityan on the verge of a knockout in tie latter rounds but eased up the pace. Rayfeldt was floored for a 7 count in the fourth hut managed to finish. It was a mismatch for Levi, obviously a ring veteran, carried too many guns for the novice Rayfeldt. Dory's Comeback Dismal Flop. Glen Dory, who saw action in the ; local ring several years ago, attempted a comeback Thursday night against Curly Harris but was lucky to earn a draw with the northside youngster. Dory made an auspicious start, slapping in a few telling punches to capture the first two rounds before the bewildered Curly couW perfect a defense. It'was a different tale in the final two innings as Curly finally penetrated Dory's defense and won the last half of the bout hands down. Harris had Dory hanging on in tbe final minutes. Fulton Coe, Negro substituting for John Rehms of Manly, who was injured, quit after 1:30 of the first chukker of his bout with Leon De- Rock of Mason City. Coe was outweighed 10 to 15 pounds and after making a futile effort to fight De- Rock on even terms kissed the canvas voluntarily. Gunder Clementson Impressive. A newcomer to the local ring, ' Gunder Clementson of Manly, made an impressive debut in punching out a decision over John Chase of e: Minneapolis. The Manly 125 pound- fCer had the manner of a veteran fffas he cooly jabbed away for four ';vhrounds, scoring repeatedly, to win MMall but the third heat which was a -j.hj draw.

(Continued on Fuse 12) purposes by the Globe-Gazette and the 29 other members of the Iowa Daily Press association in the most elaborate sports concensus ever obtained in this state. Only 13 of the 160 lads who played in the state tournament landed in the IDPA's select circle. The percentage of non-tournarnent players to win high honors mirrors tie fact that the Iowa Daily Press, in polling- the coaches and officials, asked these experts to make their selections on the basis of the entire season's play, rather than the showing made in one tournament. Cyclones Land Three. Ames' 'Little Cyclones, who swept everything before them to win the Iowa title, landed three places on the all-star squads, one on each team. Three schools. Mason City, · Davenport and East Sioux City, placed two players apiece, while the other 15 posts were scattered among 15 cities and towns in all sections of the state. For the second straight year, Howard Stoecker, Mason City's Drilliant center, was placed at one of the center positions on the first team "Stoecker" and "all-state" have become almost synonymous in Iowa in the last two years. The big fellow, who was one of two factors in carrying a more or less commonplace Mohawk team to the state finals, Henry Hert being the other, first won All-Iowa honors in 1934. That year he was an all-state second team end in football. In 1935 he was on the first IDFA all-state basketball team at center and the first IDPA all-state football team at fullback. Spirit of Champion. Besides mechanical skill, height and weight, Stoecker has the competitive spirit of a champion. He foug-ht his heart out against a ruthless and overwhelming Ames team in the state finals even after it was apparent that it would have taken an all-star cast from all the other tournament teams to match the Little Cyclones. The only other boy to repeat was Louis Strassburger of Davenport, again a third team guard. Strassburger was one of two reasons why Davenport came to Des Moines in the role of favorite to win the title. A great and shifty guard, he also was the keyman in the lightning fast Davenport attack. Lawrence Owens of Ames, first all-stateguard, is anolher boy %vho has won honorary athletic degrees before. Owens was an All-Iowa back football last fall. Brilliant though he is in basketball, and he I is without question one of the finest high school guards ever turned out in Iowa. Owens is only one player in eight on the Ames squad. Reserves Are Strong. Opposition coaches have a right to expect substitules lo be somewhat less capable than the regulars they replace. Ames' foes soon found that the rule did not work in the case of the Little Cyclones. In fact. Ames' reserves looked just as good and in some cases better than the starting players during the state tournament. Owens took the ball down the floor for Ames and had his job to do, just like the other four regulars, in the dashing Little Cyclones offense which pierced every defense (Continued on I'nse 12) LENVIL SIMMONS, Davenport, forward--One of Davenport's greatest scoring forwards in history. Made 224 points in 18 games during regular season and 93 in six tournament games; 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 146 pounds. Has been a regular for three years.

HAKOLD PACKARD, Ottumwa forward--The sparkplug of a team which would have had a mediocre record without him. Established a new scoring record for the Little Six conference by piling up 166 points. Collected 28 in one game and 22 in another. A senior, 17 years old and 5 feet 11 inches tall. * * * HOWARD STOECKER, Mason City, center--This 6-foot 4-inch cen ter, in a large part, was the 193i basketball team of the Mohawks. A senior.

His point total of 217, includ ng free throws, was more than a :hird of the total scored by the en lire team. V * * Don Shelton, Webster City, cente --An adept ball handler and an ex cellent shot, either with one fland o both. Scored 281 points during th season, 44 in the state tourney, 5 in the sectional and district meets and 183 during the regular sched ule. A junior, 6 feet 2 inches tal weighs 180 pounds. * * * LAWRENCE OWENS, Ames, guard--An expert dribbler and im- porlanl cog in plays. Serves as key man on offense.

Owens is 17. weighs 168 pounds, is 5 feet 9 inches tall. * * * PETE KALINICH, Waterloo East, guard--Always assigned to the highest scoring player on the opposing team. Kalinich ended the season with one of the finest records in Iowa. Had only 23 baskets scored against him in 19 games.

RECORDS SPLASH AT TANK EVENTS Thursday Night Sees World's Mark Fall as Chicagoan Wins Backstroke. CHICAGO, CT)--With a riotous night of record smashing hanging as a target at which to shoot, the talented field in the annual men's and women's national indoor A. A. U. swimming championship meet will further pursue its quest for titles. Jack Medica, husky star from the Washington A. C. of Seattle, already winner of the 1,500 meters free style championship, will go out to defend his laurels in the 220 yard swim. Dick Degener of the Detroit A. C. will attempt to make it two in a row at high board diving, while Lenora Kight Wingard, Cincinnati, will defend her championship in the 220 yard free style. The 220 breast stroke title will be tossed up for grabs, with John Higgins of the Olneyville boys' club of Providence, R. I., as the favorite to catch it. Thursday night's program program produced one world record performance. Adolph Kiefer, Chicago's kid wonder, whirled through the 150 yard backstroke in 1 minute, 32.7 seconds as compared to the listed world standard of 1:36.9, credited to Al van de Weghe of Newark, N. J., and Keifer's own mark of 1:35.6 which has been submitted for approval.

BOBBY RERDY TO HUNT NEW HONOR Chance Only Fair, Although Wagers Favor His Taking First Place in Test. By KENNETH GREGORY Associated Press Sports Writer AUGUSTA, Ga., -T)--The pages of golfing history were turned backward six years Friday as Robert Tyre Jones, Jr., the retired world's champion, ruled favorite over a selected all-star field in the third annual 55,000 Augusta national invitation tournament. Jones' backers believed he was ready for his most serious comeback threat since he quit the tournament trail half a dozen years ;°- He w-as in the favorite's spot in the betting at 6 to 1, but despite the wagering on behalf of Jones the consensus was that Bob had only a "fair" chance of taking first place. Henry Picard of Hershey, Pa., and Johnny Revolta of Chicago, the P. G. A. champion and leading 1935 money winner, were regarded highly in the betting odds, being bracketed at S to 1 behind Jones. Making his first professional start, W. Lawson Little. Jr., of San Francisco, world's champion amateur for the last two years, was quoted at 9 to 1 along with Gene Sarazen of Brokfield Center, Conn., who won the 1935 tournament. WRITERS SCURRY TO GET ON TIGER LIST FOR SEASON After Two Seasons, Boys Are Picking Detroit to Win American Pennant. By H K K B E K T W. B A R K E R Associated Press .Sports \Vrltor NEW YORK. .T)--As compensation for two years of neglect, baseball experts participating in the Associated Press' tenth annual pennant poll have given the Detroit Tigers an overwhelming vote of confidence for 1936. Final results in the American Icaguo poll, announced Friday showed the Tigers so far in front of the field that there was no contest in Che balloting, whatever may happen on Uie playing field. So terrific was the rush to grab a seat on the Tiger band wagon that Mickey Cochranc's crew was the first place selection of 69 of the 9" sports editors and baseball writers who cast ballots. Twenty others rated the Tigers second and the remaining eight picked them for third slot. There was scattering first place support for Torn Yawkcy's expensive Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees, and the Cleveland Indians, who led the poll a year ago, but the final tally left these clubs ranked in that order behind the world champions. The Red Sox were given 16 votes for first place but the majority of their ballots were for second or third place. Four voters picked the Yankees to regain the championship heights. Bight expressed their belief that Steve O'Neill would pilot the Indians into the flag in his first full season as manager.
