EXPERTS LOOK AT CAGE MEET All-State Basket ;Aces to Be Honored by Choice on Star Outfits. By GEORGE MILLS (lows Daily Press Bureau) DES MOINES--Sectional tournaments over, Iowa's "Jury of 1,000" prepared Tuesday to turn (o the district high school basketball classics this week-end in search of players worthy of places on the Iowa Daily Press association's fourth annual all-state basketball team. Coaches and officials throughout the state constitute the "jury of 1,000." They are being polled by the Iowa Daily Press association, of which the Globe-Gazette is a member, in selecting a mythical all-star high school basketball- cast as the climax of the 193G-37 cage season. Eyes of the experts will be intent on performances of possible all-state material this week-end, because I. D. P. A. rules require each voting coach and official to limit his choices to players "seen in action." This method is believed to be the most thorough and equitable way possible in naming an all-star team. O n e h u n d r e d twenty-eight teams will battle to stay in Ihe running this week-end. Out of the fire and smoke of battle 16 quintets will emerge as possessors of coveted slate finals berths. As a safeguard against possible injustices where players of nearly equal rating are fighting it out for a place on the all-star squad, the I. D. P. A. will name eight boys on each of its three teams. Three forwards, two centers and three guards will be honored on each of the teams.

NEW HAMPTON -- The New Hampton entry in the fifth district basketball tournament presents a team that has not had a brilliant season because it has had more hard luck than any other member of the Northeast Iowa conference. Dogged by bad breaks, the Chicakasaws no doubt will have a team in the tournament that wtJI not be eliminated unless it is by two or four points. There is no doubt that the Chickasaws, led by Harry Carney, forward, who has scored 110 points in 13 contests of the 15 game schedule, will play as good ball as Ihey have all season. Cedar Falls and Decorah were the only teams to score more than 25 points against New Hampton. Both ot the Carney brothers were out of the game with the Tigers while Gerald sprained his ankle in the Decorah game.

(This is another of » series rteallnr xvith prospects of major l e a g u e ball clubs.) PASADENA, Cal., (/P) _ There was a distinct air of confidence and optimism Tuesday as the entire Chicago White Sox team turned out for its first real day of spring training. Manager Jummy Dykes' pitchers and catchers have been'toiling under a broiling sun for a week. The rest of the squad reported Tuesday. You get the atmosphere of optimism as soon as you lake a look at the outfit. As Dykes put it, the boys collected "a piece of world's series dough" last fall, finishing in third place, and the experience, something the White Sox hadn't enjoyed in years, may prove a tonic this year, Wants to--Can't Quit. Dykes strolled ~off third base, where he had been coaching Steve Mesner, the 19 year old rookie he hopes will take his place. Mesner was bought from Los Angeles. "Good looking kid," volunteered Jimmy. "I saw him hit a ball :i mile last spring out here. He may have the stuff." Dykes rubbed his forehead and grinned: "I'm ready to quit playing, but I just can't." He is starting his twentieth year ot major league baseball. What about the While Sox- chances this season? Dykes ventured the opinion the Sox may pult another surprise. Last year he made a half prediction, hnlf promise the team would "sneak" into the first division. They did. Chances Brighter. "I think our chances are brighter this year than' last year," He mused. Teddy Lyons, dean of the Sox pitching staff, entering his fifteenth season in the big time, all with the same club, sauntered over to chat. "I would say the prospects look belter for us this year than any time since--well, for a long time," Lyons drawled. "I'll bet one thing, no club is going to run away with the pennant like the Yankees did last year. What was it, 17 .to 13 games? ( I t was 19.) "Now the way I figure it, the league will be better balanced. Thc only club I see without a chance is Philadelphia." Good for More Work. Lyons, ace "spot" pitcher, turned in 10 wins in 1336. ·"I don't believe she's ready to fall apart yet," he said, looking ( C . i i i l l . n l n l nil .Vcxl Txct) Walters Wins Table Laurels Here's Bob Walters (at riffht) beinff congratulated by Ralph Dieckmann, his defeated opponent in the final match of the "ST.
