MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 3 ·§ 1937 NINE MOHAWKS FACE CLEAR LAKE IN TOURNEY Portly Lads Losing Beef Jottings From Camps of Major Clubs in Far Away Southland. GAZETTE SPORTS SECTION CLEAKWATER, Fla., (^--Gordon (Babe) Phelps is hoping to do big things for the Brooklyn Dodgers this season and that doesn't refer to his size. The catcher has been chopping wood all winter, Phelps explained, and is down to 216 pounds as compared to the 240 he brought to camp last year. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., (/P)-Although only the batterymen are officially in training yet, the New York Yankees have good news from their outfield department. Myril Hoag is back in form. Hoag, who was badly hurt last July and had to remain out of action the remainder of the season, arrived from California Tuesday and reported he was in perfect shape. SOX HAVE REUNION PASADENA, (/P)--Wednesday was reunion day for Manager Jimmy Dykes and his Chicago Whits Sox pitchers and catchers. The parly which left Chicago Monday night was due this morn- · ing and Dykes planned to hustle all nands to the training site before noon for the first workout of the.season. NEW ORLEANS, (/P)--Pitcher Bill Zuber, tali, knock-kneed German, drew attention Wednesday from Manager Steve O'Neill o£ the Cleveland Indians. "If he didn't have anything else I'd have to give him a chance on account ot those legs," said O'Neill. "I wouldn't say you have to be knock-kneed to be a good pitcher but Matty, Alexander, Ray Caldwell and Wes Ferrell couldn't walk without wearing calouses. on the inside o£ their knees."

DUBUQUE--Shooting through the second round and into the semifinals, St. Joseph's Johawks dropped St. Joseph's of Elkader by the wayside in the archdiocesan basketball tournament here Tuesday, 13 to 9. By eliminating the Elkader quintet, last year's run- nerup in Class B competition, the Johav.'ks became favorites to slide by Immaculate Conception of Elma and enter the final game Wednesday night. St. Wenceslaus of Cedar Rapids or St. Mary's of Marshalltown will be in the title contest. The Johawks missed plenty of shots against the Elkader five, but three baskets were all the losing team could produce and two of those came from the deep back- court. Joe Madden's six points came in handy as the Johawks won, while Tom Peterson, who turned on the heat Monday, was finding the rim consistently, only to see his shots roll out of the hoop.

By STAFF WRITER i'he proof o£ the pudding--is going to be in the playing Thursday night as Mason City high school takes on Clear Lake at U o'clock in Class A sectional tournament competition at the Lions' court. Coach J. A. "Judge" Grimsley, who said last fall that his team wouldn't be as good through the season as the last two outfits he'd turned out, but would be ready to give somebody a ball game by tournament time, will send the lads out. to prove that he was right. The Clear Lake sectional event gels under way at 7 o'clock Thursday night when Klemme and Lt- land meet in the opening contest. The odds are on Klemme to defeat the Winnebago county lads. Forest City will play Garner, and looks for a win, Friday night at 7 o'clock, and it's also a fair bet that Nora Springs will move past Britt to meet the Indians in the semifinal. Thompson Draws Bye. Thompson will draw the only bye of the tournament, in Class A, and is likely to drop out of the running when "it opposes either Mason City or Clear Lake in the semifinal round. Mason City or Clear Lake? You pick 'em . . . .The Mohawks are often reminded of that one-point decision, 16 to 15, which Clear Lake took from them in the early season. Mason City, perhaps proving the adage about teaching old dogs new stunts, has gone back to depending on a pivot man as the key of its offense, and it was under that plan of attack that the Mohawks surprised basketball fans all over North Iowa by drubbing Webster City, 32 to 25, to wind up their scheduled list of games. Gorman Holds Job. Hnward Gorman has come through capably in the pivot job, and he'll be ready to go again in tournament competition. With him. will be the veterans of the season: Capt. Everett Fletcher and Wayne Wood, winding up their senior and junior years, respectively, at guard; and Jack Wallace, his badly scarred hand again usable, teamed with Leland Huff, Bob Cookman or George Wood at forward All but Wood are juniors. The Mohawks won nine games out of 22 this season. Not an impressive record--but they were losing by three and four-point margins eJI year. Only Davenport's 25 to 16 and 37 to 22 wins, the 38 to 22 lacing handed out by Waterloo West and the 31 to 16 loss to Newton were "big score" Girls to Face Second of Tussles in Series of State Contests.

ISO 12(1 IBS i as 2rc -ins sin 537 472 By ALAN GOULD NEW YORK, (IP)--If you care to parlay expert opinion on the outcome of this year's major offerings in professional sports competition, for or against, here's the forecast: Joe Louis to whip Jim Braddock for the world heavyweight (itle in Chicago, Pompoon to capture the Kentucky Derby, Harry Cooper to wear the United States open golf; crown, and the New York Yankees to play the St. Louis Cardinals in the next world series. These are the concensus selections of America's leading sports editors who gazed into the crystal ball at the request of the Associated Press, crossed their fingers, and put themselves on record for the campaign of 1937 on all major fronts. For their information and yours, it's Broadway Jack Doyle's opinion this five star parlay is a 500 to 1 proposition. THEY LIKE LOUIS A year ago, the ringside experts wouldn't have given Braddock one chance in a hundred to keep his fistic crown safe from the assault of the Brown Bomber. So rapidly have subsequent events altered opinion lhat our poll shows a tally of only 27 to 20 in favor of Louis. This tallies pretty well with the present view of betting men that the Bomber will be no better than i 2 to 3 shot when he challenges the champion in Comiskey Park. June 22. Derby selections give Pompoon :he winter book favorite, only a 13 to 10 edge over Reaping Reward. The rest of the ballots cast on Kentucky's three-year-old classic were scattered. E. R, Bradley's Brooklyn received five votes, Maedic four, Galsun two. Believe it or not, two votes were cast for non-eligible, the 5 year old Rosemont. Maybe they were thinking oE last week's rich Santa Anita handicap. COOPER HOT CHOICE Harry Cooper seems to be the hottest choice for the U. S. open crown since Gene Sarazen won in 1932 in the favorite's role. Cooper is the pick of 20, with no other player close. Henry Picard received tour votes, Denny Shute three, with two each cast for Lawson Little, Sam Snead and Halpli Guldahl. The defending champion, dapper Tony Manero, had only one backer in the poll. The world champion Yankees, despite their holdout troubles, are top-heavy choices to repeat in the American league. They polled 38 votes out oC a.possible 47. The Detroit Tigers received .six votes, Cleveland Indians two, and the Chicago White Sox one. The New Yorkers, Doyle indicates, will be odds-on in the betting line this spring. Scarcely less overwhelming is .he support for the Cardinals in :he National league. They received votes, with the New York Giants picked by only five sports editors to repeat their surprising triumph of last year. The Chicago Cubs also have five backers, the Pittsburgh Pirates one. The addition of Lpn Warneke to the Cardinal pitching itaff seems to be considered the outstanding factor in the year's pennant chase.

And the guess is that Klemme will be the winner when the final gun booms Saturday night. Now, looking around at other North Iowa sectionals: Buffalo Center, North Iowa conference and Winnebago county champion, is booked for a grand fight with Swea City, Kossulh county tillist, at Burl's Class A meet, with Ledyard and Luverne left to fight it out in Class B. The Dows Class A meet is a tossup with Belmond, Clarion, Dows and Eagle Grove the entries. G o o d e l l is the outstanding choice in Class B at Dows. Undefeated in the Seven Eagles conference card of 10 games, and winning its third conference title in as many years, the squad looks head and shoulders above the field. ITumholdt Favored. WINGS WIN.

Wellsburg, weaker than its 1936 finalist team, apparently h a s enough left to win Class B sectional honors. At Charles City, the Comets are given the nod over New Hampton in Class A, while the Class B race finds most of the 11 entrants starting at scratch. You can pick Decornh to win at home, also, in Class A, while the Class B teams fight for the title with no holds barred. One of the best sectional meets will be played at Emmetsburg where the home town team and Spencer are doped for a close struggle for Class A honors. Spencer Holds Title.
