FRIDAY PAIRINGS Quarterfinals Diagonal vs. Hubbard. Mason City X's. Sac City. Creston vs. Kalona. Marshalitoivn vs. Ute. By IKE SKELLEV Associated Press Sports Writer DBS MOINES, (IP)--It was Jim Thynne, the thin man, and his Sac City mates against the field Friday in the state interscholastic basketball tournament. There were eight teams remaining in the race tor the championship following the busy first round eliminations, but it was Thin Jim, Records Cracked DBS MOINES, (/P)--Attendance records went overboard in the opening of the state high school basketball tournament Thursday. Approximately 15,000 persons saw' the three sessions. It -was estimated that 4,000 attended the morning program and that 5,000 jammed .the Drake field- house both in the afternoon and night. Some newsmen, busy with stories after the afternoon session, found it impossible to leave the building for dinner because of the crush of the early night crowd surging around the three entrance doors. a slim slice of a fellow, who was the talk /of the thousands o£ basketball fans who swarmed into Des Moines to watch the annual scramble for the state title held by Diagonal's courageous Class B squadron. Sao City, with the remarkable Thynne boy leading the way ·with 21 points, crushed Webster City, 40 to 19, in the first round Thursday. It was a sensational show that Thynne staged for the same 5,000 afternoon fans. The young man who pulled Melrose through to the 1937 championship, but now performing under different colors, made eight field goals and five free throws. He c o n t r o l l e d the ball off both boards and passed off to teammates with an unbe- grudging manner to enable them to shoot in for short jabs at the hoop. When he left the game at the end of the third quarter he was given a rousing ovation by friend and foe alike. Diagonal, probable opponent for Sac City in Saturday's semifinals, playing their always cool, always alert game, dashed through Clinton's vaunted defense for a 35 to 25 victory in the opening game of the tournament Thursday. Hubbard Stops Lenox In justice to Clinton, however, it appeared that several of the Hiver Kings, recent winners in the tougli class A district tournament at Iowa City, were not fully recovered from recent influenza attacks. They were particularly weak in the final half when Diagonal battered through to its convincing victory. Hubbard, like Diagonal, a class B team, stopped Lenox, class A representative from the fourth district, 31 to 2T in the first round, the Hubbard boys stifling a late Lenox rally to clinch the victory. Creston, one of the best teams to show Thursday, and Kalons, a husky class B team, were matched in the opening game of the night show. Creston's Panthers, champions of the Hawkeye Six conference, rolled over Roosevelt of Cedar Rapids, 27 to 13, holding the Roughriders to a single point in the last quarter. Kalona's sturdy quintet advanced to the Quarterfinals with an exciting; 27 to ~S, triumph over Ellsworth. The Marshalltown Bobcats, slow to start, finally caught McGregor's rangy team and won 21 to 18 in the feature game Thursday night. Marshalltown fielded a marvelous defensive team, but had heartbreaking luck on its shots. McGregor, however, was a stubborn foe, aided particularly by Lanky Bob O'Brien who made three field goals in the low-scoring contest. Ute won a fire department game from Rathfaun's husky lads, 30 to 25. leading most o£ the way but never by a margin that could be classified as comfortable. There were four class A and four class B teams left in the tournament. Sac City, Mason City, Creston and Marshalltown represented t h e larger schools and Diagonal, Ute, Hubbard and Kalona were the B entries still in the running.

By AL MITCHELL Globe-Gazette Sports Editor DES MOINES--A pail- of free throws and a short goal by those old reliable game-savers Maurice Copper, Bill Colloton and Bob Brisbine, pushed Mason Qity into a second-round battle of the Iowa iiigh school t o u r n a m e n t here Thursday afternoon. The Mohawks fought off a giant class B team, Newkirk township of Hospers, to win 25 to 23 in their opening contest. Mason City's task looked easy during the early minutes of the contest, the Mohawks cracking off an 11 to 4 lead in the first period while the Newkirk squad had trouble with a bunchy defense in the free throw area. The lanky boys from northwest Iowa, topped by six-foot, four inch Rod Vanderberg, were leaving wide alleys from the side-lines to the goal during the early sessions. That defect was remedied in the second session, and Mason City was outscored two-to-one, gaining only three points while Newkirk counted a half dozen. It was Hod Vanclerberg who caused Mason City the most trouble. Stretching above tall Jim Humphrey by two inches, he was fought to a near-standstill by the Mohawk pivolman, but got five goals, four of them from under the baskets. Two of his baskets came consecutively in ihe third session to give Newkirk a four-point lead at 18 to 14, but Colloton scooped loose ball to angle a goal off the boards and Brisbine scored a free throw to cut the edge to a single point. Newkirk got another four- point margin as the fourth period got under way, but Cooper's clean toss from the free' throw- circle's rear and a tip-in goal by Humphrey, who slapped up a rebound after Brisbine had sailed another set shot for the rectangle, tied the count at 21 to 21. Newkirk went in front for the lost time with Rod Vanderberg's tip-in shot, but Cooper evened that short range, after Humphrey had pulled the ball out of an underbasket tangle. With the score at 23 to 23 and 70 seconds to go, Colloton and Brisbine laid up free throws to clinch the game. Mason City drove for the basket twice in the | final seconds instead of keeping full control of the ball, but regained possession after each try. FELDMAN LASTS ALMOST 1 ROUND WITH CHAMPION Henry Drops Lew With Hard Right in 2: 12 of Fight By PAU1, DIX United Tress Writer ST. LOUIS, U.R--Those belling boys who thought Lew Feidman .vould last three rounds against tlenry Armstrong paid off Friday. Armstrong, St. Louis born Ne- _:ro \vho had to go to California to make a living as a fighter, put the light and welterweight titles on the line Thursday night, and a capacity crowd o£ 10,000 saw Feldman counted out after two minutes and 12 seconds of the first round. Feldman had lasted five rounds against Henry in their meeting a year ago and bragged before this Eight that lie had solved the little Negro's style. His number was up From the time Armstrong sailed into him at the opening bell. Holds Three Crou-ns Before mixed bouts were permitted here, Henry futilely tried to win fame as a boxer under the name of Melody Jackson, but he failed to please and in 1931 he and his brother set out for the west. Since, he has won three world championships and oul- _ro\vn one--the featherweight li- tle which he discarded. In his last fight here Henry dropped a decision to Tony Chavez on a foul. Weighing 134 pounds, one less than his opponent, Armstrong tore in with both arms flailing at the bell. A right caught Lew on the jaw, and he was on the floor for a nine count before the bout was a minute old. Henry never let up as Feldman tried to defend himself against a barrage of lefts and rights. Moves Backward Feldman had said that the way to beat Armstrong was "to keep moving so he won't get a chance to get set," but the only way he ever moved was backward and Henry was on top of him all the time. Only once did Lew unwind enough to send a couple of weak jabs to Armstrong's face, and there wasn't enough steam- behind them to stop a two year old. When Lew got up from the first knockdown. Henry drove him into a neutral corner. He pounded him unmercifully on the ropes. Feldman grasped the ropes and tried to hold on for a fen- more seconds and Henry stepped back. Then as Lew left the protection of the ropes, Armstrong charged in again and never stopped throwing punches until a stiff right on the button dropped the Brooklyn boy for the full count. "I kept my promise I'd finish him quicker than I did last time," Henry said later. Otranto Ends Season With 32 to 20 Win OTRANTO -- Otranto h i g h school finished its basketball season with a victory Tuesday night hero by defeating Orchard 32 to 20. Otranlo led at the half 17 to 9 and kept on top all the way. Lloyd Perkins paced the winners with 16 points. With the win Otranto completed the season play with 11 victories out of 19 games and scoring 564 points to its opponents' 426. Perkins counted 218 points for Otranto during the season.
