BASEBALL Des Moines Demons to open season here with Mason City Bats. Games carded for North Iowa fairgrounds April 28 and 29. , BASEBALL Nora Springs meets Mason City high school on Roosevelt diamond at 2:30 Saturday. Clear Lake in practice track meet. FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 1934 Out of the PRESSBOX ------ Bj AL M i l l HELL Sunday Meeting The early reports which were the subject of this column's discourse a day ago, concerning a class D baseball league in North Iowa and southern Minnesota, have been modified considerably by a decision to hold a meeting next Sunday for discussing such a league's operation. * * * Algona will be the center of the meeting, and other towns concerned will probably bo Esthervllle, Spencer, and Fairmont, Minn., Albert Lea and Austin, having already entered a southern Minnesota league, will probably be out of the picture, although representatives will interview baseball backers in both places before the Sunday meeting. * » * The league may become the "Northen Iowa" loop if Fairmont proves to be the only Minnesota entry. Whether other towns will expand it to a six club organization, or an eight, will probably be settled Sunday, or later. * * * Something Different A while ago, something was said here about a stunt that Long John Barko, University of Jowa basketball player, performed at a physical education circus held at Iowa last year. And just a couple of days ago, a sports page story told of a faculty basketball game, promoted by cigar store coaches, which was to be the main feature of a second circus planned ' for next week. * * Xi But now, from first hand author ity, I've learned that the faculty basketball game is off. The informa tion came from the man who was to have been the referee--Dr. E. H Lauer, head of athletics at the un iversity, who visited Mason Citj Thursday. * * * In its place will be another game of basketball. It will be different--the whole contest is to be played in the dark. One team; led by Harold Swaney, former Iowa eager, will be marked by "radium" letters, large I's; the other will wear jerseys with a strip of radium paint horizontally drawn across the players' chests. Eddie Break will lead the second club. * * * The goals are painted so as t shine with an eerie light, and th basketball will likewise imitate glow-worm as it sails about. Eve the referee will be "lit," with a ra dium painted cap. Dr. Lauer didn ; explain how toe boundaries of th court will be determined in the dark but maybe they'll glow, too! * * * Another feature of the show (Turn to Market Page) ALGONA PARLEY TO DECIDE ON LOOP Those 'B' Horses Threaten Softball Backers to Meet in Mason City to Run Bradley String Out to Five Wins in Big Derby Four Nominees Out for Race This Season. By C. KOBEKT KAY LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 13. (IP) --Col. E. R. Bradley has taken $215,800 and four gold trophies out of the Kentucky Derby pot. Will he be in on the pay-off this year? With four nominees -- Bazaar, Boy Valet, Blue Again and Baker's Dozen--training nicely, he is conceded an excellent chance to place a horse at least fourth in the 1934 derby, which would net him $1,000. Bradley won the 1921 derby with Behave Yourself, the 1926 event with Bubbling Over, and his Burgoo King and Broker's Tip were victorious in 1932 and 1933. In addition, three of his horses have run second in the derby, one has come in third, and one has taken fourth place. Passed i-12,000,000 Mark in 1932. It will be many years before this record is matched, and when the success of his green and white silks in other rich events is considered, the genial blue grass turfman and philanthropist has a firm claim on fie title of "America's premier turfman. 1 ' Bradley, a native Pennsylvaman, went west as a youth, laid the foundation of his fortune, returned to Chicago several years later and increased his wealth, and entered racing in the '90's. His stable, known as the "Lucky B" stable because of his habit of giving his horses names beginning with the letter B, won small annual amounts until 1910, when its earnings began increasing rapidly and passed the $2,000,000 mark in 1932. High Cost of Kacing. The colonel says his thoroughbred operations cause him a net loss of 530,000 annually, because of the maintenance expense of his magnificent Idle Hour farm near Lexington. His philanthropies have been legion. Donations to orpnan- ages are his principal contributions to charity, and he has presented several charity race meetings at ws Idle Hour farm.

They assure you absolute purity every time you buy Kendall, the 2000 Mile Oil. Can there be a more sensible way to buy oil for the powerful, yet delicate, motor in your car? Kendall quality is such that you can run it for 2000 miles between oil changes if you merely maintain the proper level. This quality comes from the crude (Bradford Grade of Pennsylvania Crude, the finest and costliest in the world) and from Kendall's several special refining processes. This long-mileage quality makesKendallOil the sensible choice for any motorists. Stop at the stations displaying the Kendall sign. Ask for Kendall, the 2000 Mile Oil, in sealed cans.
