12 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WEDNESDAY. MARCH 15, 1939 BE-GAZETTE SPORTS SWIFT, SLOW TEAMS BATTLE National Intercollege Tourney Sees lowans Win, Lose Contests KANSAS CITY, (U.B -- There were speeders and road hogs to occupy "the "court' 1 in the second round docket of the national intercollegiate basketball tournament Wednesday and both the fast and slow travelers wondered how they would fare in the judgment. The C o 11 e gians, representing Wayne university, Detroit, Mich.; Manchester college. Manchester. Ind.: Peru Teachers, Peru, Nebr.; Glem-ille, W. Va., and East Texas State, Commerce, Tex., are young men who like to shake off all the speed limits when they get their hands on a basketball. They employ the fast break and dribble for the goal at a full gallop. Contrasting with these "shoot and run" teams were the "loafers," the easy-going, deliberate squads, apparently not concerned with getting any place as long as they are able to keep ahead of their opposition. The fans called them "road hogs'' and placed such teams as the defending champion Central State Teachers of Warrens- tmrg, Mo.; San Diego State; Augustana college, Rock Island, 111.; Kentucky State, Murray, Ky., and Maryville, Mo., Teachers in this list. The principal difference is irr the stress placed upon offense and defense. The fast breaking teams usually have little to offer to protect themselves against 'opponent scoring, but rely on making enough points to keep ahead. The slow teams feature intricate formations under the enemy goal, usually variations of the zone and man-for-man defenses. First round results: St. Ambrose 37: New Mexico Minea 22- Trinity 44: Holbroofc College 41. Dakota Wesleyan 41; West Texas Teachers 35. Murray Teachers 43; Jordan College 37. San Diego 43; Northern (Aberdeen, S. Dak.) 23. Wayne CS; Anderson CcHese 26. "Warrensbure 20; Loras College 16. Manchester 53; Central Oklahoma 30.

Oklahoma Wins in Regional, Moves to Coast Tourney OKLAHOMA CITY, (ff)--Oklahoma's Sooner cagers convinced 4,500 fans who watched them dump the Oklahoma Aggies, 30 to :21, Tuesday night 'that they are 'the class of the midlands and ^turned toward California and the second hurdle in their drive toward the National Collegiate A. A.'s basketball championship. The Sooners, whose "kid" coach, Bruce Drake, is winding up hi: first year in the business, shelved their usual lightning-fast offense and resorted to a slow, set style to beat the Aggies at their own game and win the fifth 'district title. .The next step in the title drive is a four-day western playoff in San Francisco Monday and Tuesday with T e x a s university's Southwest conference champions "Utah State of the Rocky Mountain 'conference, and the winner of th ·Pacific coast's playoff between '.Oregon and California this week end. COLLEGE FIVES N A. A. I), TOP Older, Taller Foes . Fall Before Swift Stars at Denver DENVER, (U.R--College bask"et- iall fought the battle of the un- lerdog in the National A. A. U. ournament Wednesday, demand- ng recognition in the ranks of the mighty. Its fight was carried into he third round by four surprising earns which refused to bow to outed superiority. The "husking" was over and the 6 teams that paired off had dem- mstrated their class to 36 others vhose reach for the mythical vorld title had been brave but hort and slow. It was a rare sight for fans at his biggest of basketball shows o see four college outfits survive midweek and carry the challenge o 'their taller, older opponents. So they went to the auditorium to cheer the Sam Houston Teachers of Huntsville, Tex., the Colorado cj311 e g e of Colorado Springs, reeley State college, Greeley, Colo., and the National Business college, Roanoke, Va. Each had been rated the underdog in second-round contests and each staged a blazing stretch finish to win. Most spectacular was the win by Sam Houston over favored Oakland, Cal.. Youngs, 30 to 28. The Texans scored the winning basket with but 45 seconds remaining. Colorado college duplicated with a late rally to eliminate the Reading, Ohio, Hotzes, 59 to 54. The score was" tied five times in the final five minutes. Although the other two victorious college fives fared- better the scoring pressed.

Iowa Union Sees Demand for Change in Present Plans DBS MOINES, (IDPA)--Ever increasing popularity of girls' basketball in Iowa high schools has opened a new field in the teaching profession by creating a crying demand for women coaches, it has been revealed by directors of the Iowa High School Girls' Athletic union. While there are. many women teachers engaged in coaching- Eirls basketball teams there is plenty of room for more of them, the directors feel. They are of the attitude that the majority of superintendents at the 520-odd schools which sponsor the sport prefer women coaches to men for their teams. Two factors figure largely in the preference, according to Supt. C. H. Mclntire, Oakland, southwestern Iowa's board member. They are: 1. Women naturally understand girls better than men. 2. Reduction in the expense of sponsoring girls' teams. The first factor needs no further explanation. Superintendent Melntire enlarged on the second by explaining that a woman coach would also serve as a chaperon on trips. The union now requires that a woman chaperon escort teams coached by men on all trips, adding an extra person and extra expense for the school. For the last several years the union has gained 10 to 20 members annually and in most instances men coaches have been employed or their duties doubled if they were originally coaching boys teams. "Women coaches are difficult to contract, the directors reported, since no college or university in Iowa offers a course in coaching the sport In its physical education curriculum. Therefore, most of the women coaches in Iowa today received what training- they possess in high school while participating In the sport. The demand for women coaches is felt despite the fact that records show they do not produce teams which are as successful as those coached by men. A good example is the state tournament last week for all 16 finalist squads were coached by men. Serving with Superintendent Mclntire on the board are Supt. A. E. Rankin, Hampton, president, for northeast Iowa; Supt. Forest F. Hagan, Allerton, southeast Iowa, and Supt.. G. L. Sanders, Plover, secretary, northwest, Iowa.

Hansen and Everett White are tied for district No. 2. Virgil Lair elected as director at large. "Tail Spin" Dramatic Narration of Femme Flyers in National Air Races "Tail Spin," which is at the Cecil through Thursday, is a dramatic, though simply narrated story of feminine flyers in the national air races at Cleveland. It has in it the pathos, thrills and human quality which are undoubtedly a genuine part of the races, and. relates faithfully the story of the various entries in a typical race. No. 1 Aviatrix is Trixie Lee (Alice Faye), who lies, borrows and begs to obtain enough financial help to enter the races; No. 2 is Gerry Lester (Constanca Bennett), wealthy socialite flyer, who, because of her superior airplanes, earns the dislike of. her competitors; No. 3 is Lois Allen (Nancy Kelly) who flies well, but flies chiefly because her husband is an aviator. As the film takes you through 1 ' the various stages of preparations | for the competition, and finally the race itself you are shown in vivid fashion the many heart tugs caused by such an event. "Tail Spin" is a gripping, realistic drama, which leaves the path of logic rarely. Again our favorite Nancy Kelly is cast ideally, as the aviatrix who lives only to be with her husband (Edward Worris). Her performance is an impressive one, not overdone despite the emotional gamut through which she passes. was PLANS GOLF MOVE DES MOINES, (P)--George Heaney announced he would become manager and golf professional at the Iowa City country club April 1.

Alice Faye and Constance Bennett are happily cast as the flying competitors in both glory and love, with Miss Bennett gaining love, and Miss Faye the glory. It's the fiist film in which we've seen Miss Faye fail to "get her man." Kane Richmond, Joan Davis and Jane Wyman stand out in their respective roles.
