J-ocal cagers, winninjr five games in preliminary tournament play to enter the (itlc round, were paced by two frontline performers in one pair of contests, and by two back-court marksmen in three district tournament games, statistics showed Wednesday. Jim Humphrey's 23 points, scored in two- sectional tournament games, pushed Mason City toward its first title in the preliminary play at Clear Lake, with Don Pickell counting just one point less for second honors. ., Mason City's accurate guards, 'Bob Brisbine and Maurice Cooper, jtopped the Mohawk list in district 'tournament competition at Iowa :State Teachers college, Cedar olFalls. Brisbiiie counted 22 .points V in three gaities^ while Cooper was 'also held in second place by the difference of a single point. Both Brisbine and Cooper tossed life-saving- shots for the Mohawks in district tournament : competition, as the Mason City- ans edged out Cedar Falls' Tigers in the final two minutes of their contest, 29 to 37. Order Your SUIT or TOPCOAT Now ... For Easter New Spring Patterns Now on Display Thursday Morning Sees Fire Started for Hawkeye Crown _By IKE SKELLEY Associated Press Sports Writer DES MOINES, UP)--Rival high school basketball forces, a bit tense as they approached the zero hour, hustled through final practice sessions on the Drake field- house court Wednesday. Thursday the 16 candidates for the state championship will swing into tiie uncertainties of first round play, Diagonal's defending titleholders and Clinton starting the hostilities, at 10 a. m. Most of the 16 finalists except Marshalltown, Webster- City and Newkirk fook light drills. Wednesday. Those three teams stole a one-day march on their rivals by taking workouts Tuesday. "" Marshalltown and Webster City returned home following their brief visits to the fieldhouse and will not return until Thursday. Marshalltown doesn't get into action until 8:10 p. m. when the Bobcats will go against McGregor in the second game on the night program. Lynx Draw Sac,Tribe Webster City has what may become a rather unpleasant task. The Lynx drew powerful Sac City for the second game on the afternoon card, and if recent performances by Jim Thynne and his mates are indicative of what to expect from Sac City in the tournament, the Lynx are in for a busy day. There was particular interest in the Clinton team. The River Kings, making their first appearance in a championship tournament in many years, have gathered support from the rail- birds since their splendid exhibitions in winning the first district's Class A meet at Iowa City. Fans are wondering what will happen to Diagonal's "fire department" game when the River Kings start clamping down. And vice versa, they're asking what will happen to Clinton's defense when Pop Varner's boys start hitting from all- over the court. That is. of course, if they do. Look Over Creston Des Moines fans also were anxious to get a look .at Creston. The southwest Iowa team-bumped off Roosevelt of Des Moines, 31 to 19 in the third district final and that's quite a licking for any team to give the Roughriciers. Creston drew Roosevelt of Cedar Rapids as its first round foe and there was a general suspicion it would develop into quite a ball game. They start their feud at 4:20 p. m. The Mason City-Newkirk contest at 2 p. m. on Thursday, also has its followers. Nearly everyone knows what to expect of Mason City, for J. A. "Judge" Grimsley's lads are frequent title tournament participants and have a way of doing right well by themselves. Little is known, however, of Newkirfc except that the northwest Iowa contestants have won 23 straight games and don't even have a school gymnasium. They did their practicing at nearby Orange City. The system has paid dividends so far. Will there be an other pay-off Thursday? alon-? will tell.

The IMaroons, who lost one gamc_in 25 this season to place third in the state's list o£ parochial school and academy teams, received an invitation to participate in the national championships Tuesday. The local team accepted immediately. It was expected Wednesday that approval would be granted by the Iowa High School Athletic association, for the Maroons' participation, in spite of the fact that the ruling prep body frowns on competition in other than regularly scheduled state tournaments. Meet Opens March 22 The Mason Cityans will enter the tournament on Wednesday, March 22. The meet continues through, four days at Loyola University. . The hottest-scoring local team ever to enter the record books, Holy Family scored nearly 1,000 points this season, reaching a total of 946 markers to 464 for opposing teams. The local team won the Class B championship of the Dubuque archdiocese, defeating the defending champion, St. Mary's of IWarshaHtown, and breaking the defeatless streak of a strong St. Wenceslaus team from Cedar Eapids, In state tournament competition, the Maroons defeated the two- year Iowa champion, St. Ambrose of Davenport, in a 23 to 21 thriller, and beat the Sioux City diocesan winner, Immaculate Conception of Cherokee, before losing a semifinal game to Central of Ottumwa.
