1 SIXTEEN TEAMS SET FOR STATE FINALS tb NORTH IOWA HAS FOUR BRILLIANT TEAMS IN MEET Goldfield, Rudd, Elma and Mallard Rated as Strong Title Contenders. E-GAZETTE S RTS MASON CITY, IOWA, MARCH 18 1931 IOWA STARTS WORK FOR STIFF GRID CARD II DES MOINES, March 18. UP)-Sixteen teams, undefeated campaigners in the sectional and district tournaments, Thursday will begin their drive for the state championship in the finals of the' Iowa high school basketball .tournament. The future champions face the prospect of playing four hard contests in three days, the final two to ne play Saturday afternoon and night. All-Star Teams Entered. The tourney brings together a group of quintets which have hung up enviable records during the season as well as in the .tournament play. Some of the quintets have gone thru the season undefeated, while others have dropped only occasional contests, defeats that were erased in, impressive performances in other games. The tournament will get under way at 10 .o'clock in the morning with Alta, a class A school, meeting Grandview, class B, in the first of eight games on the day's schedule. Muscatine, which toppled last year's champion, Davenport, in the district meet at Davenport, will make its first appearance at 11:10 a. m., opposing Elma, another class B school. Rufld to Meet Oilman. Mount Ayr and Diagonal, class A and B winners, respectively, in the sixth' district tournament, will open 'the afternoon's hostilities at 2 p. m. Diagonal, boasting an imposing sea- sou's record including victories over Mount Ayr, is favored to upset the class A quintet. The games at 3:10 p. m., will bring together two class B contenders, Oilman and Rudd. Two teams with perhaps the most impressive records in the tournament will tangle at 4:10 p. m., when Abraham Lincoln of Council Bluffs meets a highly touted c^ass B quintet, Lehigh. The Lynx have dropped one game this year, that to Omaha Central, and have won 19 games against the strongest teams of western Iowa and eastern Nebraska. Lehigh scored 25 straight victories during the season, numbering among its victims Goldfield, one of the class A finalists. , · Goldfield to Meet Vinton. | , :JiJi^idfleW;|^;..Vtot|M..jirny^^j?t{: lowed' by. appearances of tie two class 'B quintets who hav2 fought their way into the finals tournament for the last two years. Both are pitted against string class A opposition. One of these, Henderson, which went to the semifinals last year, meets Boone's fast team at 8:10 p. m., and the other, Mallard, will · tackle Roosevelt high of Des Moines at 9:20 p. m., the closing contest of the day. Friday's program will consist of four games, two in the afternoon and two in the evening. The surviving four teams will fight it out Saturday afternoon, with the winners and loaers meeting Saturday night for championship and consolation honors, respectively. Muscatine Rated ns Finalist. Muscatine, unless it meets unexpected opposition from the class B teams in its bracket, seems likely to be one of the finalists. If it defeats Elma in the first game it will be called -upon to face either Mount Ayr or Diagonal. A victory here would pit-it against Oilman, Rudd, Goldfield or Vinton in the semifinals. The other bracket, however, carried a list of formidable teams. Boone, Roosevelt high and Abraham Lincoln all are represented by strong teams, while the quintets of Mallary and Henderson, already seasoned by one year of play in the finals tournament, are certain to battle for the prestige of class B schools. The complete pairing, with times of all games: FRIDAY 1. Alta vs. Grandview, 10 a. m. 2. Boone vs. Henderson, 8:10 p. m. 3. Council Bluffs vs. Lehigh, 4:20 p. m. 4. Roosevelt (Des .

NEW YORK, March 18. (/P--The Philadelphia Athletics may he champions of tho baseball world during the regular season but they're just "cousins" to other clubs now playing the "grapefruit circuit" in Florida, California and other training- camp states. The champions have, won only three games out of eight in the spring 1 training program. The New York Yankees have won six games out of seven with National league opponents and thus enable the American league to show a slight margin over the older cir- uit in games played so far. The ctual count is nine victories for the American against seven for the Na- lonal. In games of all descriptions, vhether against major or minor eague opposition, the Cleveland Indians set the pace with five successive victories ,all against New Or- eans of the Southern association. The Pittsburgh Pirates have won hree straight and the Boston Red Sox, two in a row.
