NET SQUAD Youngsters Not Set to Be in Top Flight Tussle for New Season. NEW YORK, (#)--The United States, England, Australia and Germany are in the same boat insofar as Davis cup singles players are concerned. Each nation lias just one reliable and the strain t h a t will be put on the shoulders of li'l Bunny Austin when England opens defense of the international tennis trophy next July probably will be so terrific as to cost her the cup. As for the others: Germany has the bounding Baron Gottfried von Cramm; Australia has Adrian Karl Quist and" Uncle Sam has redheaded Don Budge. Youngsters Not Ready. You can take it from tall Davey .Tones, who went from one light blue to another, first as captain of Columbia's tennis team and then of the Cambridge forces in England, in 1934, John Bull virtually has lost the cup because his younger players aren't ready to be thrown into the breach left when Fred Perry turned prp. Jones thinks Australia, will win. "The competition this year ought to be peculiarly close because each of the 'big four' has only one dependable singles player," said Jones, who is making his first bid for the U. S. indoor singles championship at the seventh regiment armory. He looms -as one of Champion Greg Mangin's most serious threats. Need Two Seasons. "The British Lawn Tennis association is working with Charlie Hare, Eddie Filby, Donald Shayes and Jimmy Jones (no relation) but they won't be ready for big- time play for a couple of years " he continued. ' "Pat Hughes, who plays cup doubles with Charlie Tuckey probably will be Austin's singles mate, but he really doesn't like to play singles, although he can beat any one of the four youngsters right now. I don't see how England can win and my choice is Australia." GOODELL HIGH WINS HANCOCK TOURNEY Gaodell retained the Hancock county cup at Garner Saturday night by nosing out Garner, 22 to 19, in a thrilling contest before a capacity crowd. In the consolation game, Corwith and Crystal Lake also pro- X'ided a thriller for the fans when Convith nosed out Crystal Lake, 25 to 23.

SKELLEY Associate!! Press Snorts Writer DES MOINES, (A 1 )--Northeastern Iowa basketball critics hesitate laming the sectional winner at Waterloo but they aren't at all backward in predicting the Waterloo class A champion will rep- ·esent the fifth Iowa district at Des Moines March 18, 19 and 20. Cedar Falls, Waterloo East and West are the three ranking teams at Waterloo. The edge, if any, ·ests with Cedar Falls, the northeast Iowa experts declare. East and Cedar Falls are paired n the first round, and the consensus is that the winner will smash through to lake the section- honors. East Loses Ace. E a s t , a consistent w i n n c r .hroughout the season, seems to lave lost its spark since it lost Pete Kalinich, all-slate guard, via the eight-semester rule. West, coached by Glen Siro- n-idge and annually a title threat, las had an in-and-out season. West's hopes suffered a crushing Mow when Kenneth Oleson, a crack forward, fractured a wrist m a recent game with East. The class B at Waterloo also looks like a hard battle. Denver and Quasqueton are the favorites. The latler represented the district at Des Moines a year ago. Waverly Set to Win. Waverly, Northeast Iowa conference champion, appears set to win class A honors at Oelwein, Coach Walton Koch, however, must go into the tournament without the services of Kepler, a star guard who injured his back during the football season and novel' f u l l y recovered a l t h o u g h he played most of the basketball schedule. Thirleen teams provide a wide- open race in class B at Oelwein with no particular favorite. Dubuque probably will win the class A title at its own sectional, but only because the opposition is weak. . . . ,., Ulaauoketa IMay Surprise. Manchester and Maquoketa are the other entries in the A division and Maquoketa will provide the upset it it comes. Andrew, Bellevue and Gulten- berg are booked for a three-way fight for the class B championship at Dubuque. Six other teams are in the field. Lake Mills, improving as the season progresses, apparently has a slight advantage in Northwood's class A, but the home town club, Osage and St. Ansgar are capable opponents. Watch County Aces. Kensett and Plymouth, Worth and Cerro Gordo champions, respectively, are the class B standouts at Northwood. Plymouth won the class B title at Mason City las year and is the Twin River conference titlist, undefeated in eight games. West Union, second place team in the strong Northeast Iowa conference, likely will pace the clasi A field at Fayette. Tripoli and Randalia have a slim edge in an eight-team class B group. New Hampton or Charles City should take class A honors Charles City. The B division is anyone's race with 12 teams en tered. Elkader and McGregor are tin class A and class B leaders, re spectively, at Monona, and Wau kqn and Fort Atkinson occupy si miliir positions at Decorah.

Northwestern 31; Chicago "ft. Minnesota 30; Wisconsin IV. By EARL HIL^IGAN CHICAGO, OT--Three teams looked confidently ahead Monday toward a share . of the Big Ten basketball championship, while Jewell Young of Purdue was within reaching distance of a new all- time scoring record for a western conference season. Illinois, with nine victories and two defeats, is virtually tied with Minnesota and Michigan, each with two setbacks and eight wins. On past performances, all three clubs appear likely to finish their schedules without being whipped, although Northwestern, which meets Minnesota now and Illinois next Saturday, could scramble the standings with upset victories. Four Off Record. Young, who scored 22 points Saturday night as Purdue downed Indiana 69 to 45, has scored 1G3 points, only four less than the 167 point record made by Joe Reiff of Northwestern.

STATE FINAL MEET AT FORT D O D G E Fort Dodge "I ail on Ensl Waterloo Valley Junction Uason Cily Creseo Clinton Osaje Sew Hampton Eajle Grove . . si Waterloo Kldora Perrv FORT DODGE -- Fort Dndgii again is the Iowa high school wrestling champion. Championships are almost commonplace for the Dodgers who won their eighth state wrestling title in the finals of the Iowa meet here Saturday night with 22 points. Orin Thompson, Mason City 115 pound wrestler, won the state title at that weight at the final ses-* ORIN THOMPSON sion of the Iowa prep wrestling tournament at Fort Dodge Saturday night, defeating Jensen of Waterloo West in a thrilling bout that went into an overtime session before the Mason City athlete earned the referee's nod. Thompson won with an aggressive overtime attack in the extra session, after a regular period which provided no basis for a decision. Perhaps the greatest surprise to Mason Cilyans, and wrestling fans all over the state, was Tom Rumeliote's defeat by Roberts o£ Valley Junction in the 155 pound final match. Rumeliote was one o£ four champions of last season who failed to repeat. Only Bell of Clarion and Kuhn of Fort Dodge earned a second crown this season. Hardly less surprising was Bill Leewright's semifinal loss in the 105 pound contests, but pleasant news was the third place earned by Orlando Caliccbia, Mohawk 125 pounder, who went down before Lindholm of Waterloo East, six seconds before the end of the championship bout, as the Trojan champion applied a half nelson and bar arm for the fall. Calicchia lost to Sword oC Eldora, 115 pound champion las! season, who won from Calicchia on a referee's decision, to lake second honors in the consolation round.
