MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE W: THURSDAY, MAKCH 16, 3 WORLD INDOOR TRACK RECORDS BROKEN AT MEET Borican Hangs Up New Half Mile and 800 Meters Records HANOVER, N. H., ,U.R)_Dart- inouth's super-speed boards were credited with three more world indoor track records Thursday. Johnny Borican, Elberon, N: J., Negro, cracked the indoor standards for a half mile and 800 meters and the Fordham one mile relay team set up a new mark in Dartmouth's second annual record carnival Wednesday night. Lash Fails Don Lash, Indiana stale policeman, failed by three seconds to better his own indoor two mile record and New York university's two mile relay squad missed by 2.4 seconds equaling the 14 year old Georgetown mark. Despite these two failures, they were the fastest times for either event this year, and lent more proof that the big, lively Dartmouth oval is the fastest indoor track in the world. The 25 year old Borican, sensation ot the winter campaign, was paced by four Dartmouth runners ·who wilted under the hot pace. He broke the 800 meter tape in 1:49.2 and crossed the 880 yard mark in 1:49.8, breaking the record of 1:51.4 that Lloyd Hahn set for both events in 1928. Hahn had the identical time for both distances because he was timed only at 880 yards. It is approximately five yards longer than 800 meters. Grins at Tape Running easily around the 6 2-3 laps to the mile track, Borican rated himself perfectly and his white teeth sparkled in a grin as he went through the two tapes. His time was only two-thirds of a second over Elroy Robinson's listed half mile outdoor record of 1:49.6, but it was six-tenths slower than the 1:49.2 which Sydney Wooderson, the British bank clerk, has pending before the I.

League Heads Worrying as Season Nears, Rolfe, Medwick, Werber, Waner Are Named in Long List NEW Y O R K , (IP)--Some of those holdouts which were laughing water to the major league magnates whenever mentioned during the winter are bitter draughts now that the season is just a month away. _ The roll of unsatisfied and unsigned performers includes Red Rolfe of the world champion New York Yankees. Joe Medwick of the St. Louis Cardinals, Bill Werber of the Philadelphia Athletics, Paul Waner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and sizable segments of the Cleveland Indians and St. Louis Browns. Indians Have Hurlers The Indians alone have Pitchers Willis Hudlin and Johnny Broaca, Outfielder Earl Averill and Shortstop Lyn Lary still outside the tepee while the Browns' dissenters number Buck Newsom, Don Heffner and Ralph (Red) Kress. The venerable Connie Mack, who believes he lias uncovered a comer in Joe Gantenfaein at third base, .Wednesday called for waivers on Wei-ber, who has been knocking around in the American league for six seasons. Quits Raises Ed Barrow, president of the Yanks, was quoted in St. Petersburg, Fla., to the effect that he was through giving voluntary raises to his players because they weren't appreciated. He was referring to Rolfe, who was offered a boost from 513,500 to 515,000. Rolfe hit .311 last year and was chosen by basebalj writers during the winter as the big top's outstanding third baseman. Muscles Medwick has been offered $17,500 by the Cardinals and is asking $20,000 while the only other National league holdout, Paul Waner, was cut from about $17,500 to $12,000. Waner didn't sign last spring until the Pirates reached Texas on their exhibition tour toward the east and his hitting collapsed from .354 to .280. Problems Varied Cleveland's problems are varied and a lot of persons will concede an honorary degree in psychiatry to Vice President Cyril C. Slap- ncka if he solves them all. Broaca, the bespectacled Yale graduate who jumped from the Yankees into a year and a half of Holdouts Become Bitter Draughts He didnt know his own strength, and so Lennie Merullo, onetime shortstop at Villanova college in Pennsylvania, clouted a mighty one and broke the bat. This was durinir his practice with the Cubs on Latalina Island, California. GIobe^Gazette Sports Long Island Blackbirds Are Cage Meet Favorites Brooklyn Five May Reach Finals of Invitation Tourney retirement, demands a $5,000 bonus for signing a contract. Averill Wednesday rejected a contract which would have given him the same salary as last year if he played in 125 games. He hit .330 in 134 games last summer compared with .299 in 156 games the season before. The status of vague, but they're expected to confer with Slapnicka within a few days. The shutters come off the box office windows in a month. The gum band on the bank rolls may have to come sooner. FIGHT RESULTS By The Associated Press JURMINGHAM. Ala.-Jimmy Perrin, L Lloyd Pine.

An almost sure to meet the Blackbirds in the tournament final was the other New York entry, St. John's of Brooklyn, which eclipsed almost every Madison Square Garden scoring record in eliminating Roanoke college in the other half of Wednesday night's doubleheader before 14,443 paying customers. L. I. IT. Wins With two regulars out because of illness and their star-scorer, Irv Torgoff, recovering' from a spell of grippe, L. I. U. routed New Mexico 52 to 45. Roonoke, unbeaten in their last 20 games and winner of 21 out of 22 starts this season, failed to come up to expectations, and St. John's had a field day, winning 71 to 47. On Monday night, St. John's meets unbeaten Loyola of Chicago, while L. I. U. engages Bradley Tech of Peoria, 111., in the semifinals. Both Illinois teams drew first round byes. The final will be played Wednesday night. L. I. U., used 10 men and set a terrific pace. The score was a 29 to 29 deadlock at the halftime intermission. It was still a see-saw affair five minutes before the end with the score tied 42 to 42. Fresh Men Hit I. I. U. sent in three fresh men --Torgoff, Kaplowitz and Brom- barg--who rang up five baskets before New Mexico could hit the hoop. Torgoff, with five field goals and four free throws, was high scorer with 14 points. Joe Jackson and Mel Ritchey led the south- westerners with 12 each. Gene Studebaker also bettered the mark with 26 points. The St. John's 71-point total was 11 better than the tournament and garden record o£ 60 hung up by Temple in licking Colorado in the final last year. Their 30 field goals also topped the previous high of 28 set by Temple in that same game JOETTESLOSE TO WATERLOO Mason City Girls Nipped in Opening Round 14 to! 3 St. Joseph's high school gir of Mason City were eliminated i the first round of the diocesa when they lost to St Mary's ,,* Waterloo 14 to 13 Wednesday night.

National Cage Tilt Foresee Rocky Path KANSAS CITY, (U.R-- Eight teams still were- around to answer ll call in the national intercollegiate basketball meet Thursday, but the defending champions, Warrensburg, Mo., Teachers, were wondering if it wouldn't be better r them to play hookey. Tiie Missourians found their to the quarterfinal round more rocky than the others, because every opponent has pointed them, hopeful of being the team to eliminate the "champs." tall Teachers barely escaped fo path The defeat in their first two assignments, putting on late rallies to eke out victories over teams that hadn't been given a chance. The other seven survivors all wanted a chance at the Mules. They had observed the tactics used by first and second round opponents of the champions and were certain they could improve on them. There was also a feeling that whatever team beat the Mules would go on to win (he title. Quarterfinal pairings put Glenville, W. Va., against St. Ambrose, Davenport, Iowa; Southwestern, Winfield, Kans., opposite Maryville, Mo., Teachers and Manchester college, North Manchester, Ind., against San Diego State.

Since then Hayes, Howard and Trainer Tom Smith have watched the horse in every move and whim. They were watching him in the race that blasted their dreams of a 'Biscuit victory in the 5100,000 Santa Anita handicap two weeks later. "I don't think many people saw what I saw when the 'Biscuit took a couple o£ lame steps atter that race," Hayes said. "I kept my eyes on him, and the way he carried himself from the time he was led back to the stand and until late that night when he was placed in his stall. It was a display of grit and pure pride that I'll alway cherish. Action Changed 'The "Biscuit took a couple ol lame steps but when Georgie Woolf dismounted his whole action changed. He looked up into the stand full of people. I could reac what was going on in his mind. "He wasn't going to let thos" people see him limp. He had too much pride for that.

They haven't a prayer. Like lambs i flannel suits, they frolic on the verge of the slaughter. Their inspiration is a new manager, a dentist from Little Rock ie Thompson "Doc" Prothro. Others may be glum, but not Prothro day or so ago in a burst of enthusiasm following the beating out a bunt by one of his players, Prothro issued this stirring summary his club:--"The only faults of our club are (1) too much dead wood, ''j"° s P,? rk - W over-abundance of ham and (4) ingrown resignation Of course, Prothro's estimate was a summary one, one based on short acquaintance with the Phillies. He has been down in the ·ouuiern league for years and hasn't the deep acquaintance with the mines that some of us have. Give him u Jew months and he won't so enthusiastic over their prospects. I heard in New Braunfcls m a very confidential and inside source, that Dentist Prothro had promised each Philly a new gold tooth, properly inscribed, if the ·am lifted itself from the eighth place that it had made its own by matter's rights over a period of many year*. ^ - idvance from eight to seventh place would be a great one for --hes.
