_MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 10 · 1937 NINE GET .276 BASKET-SHOT AVERAGE Cards Worry Over Defense Infield Biggest Problem Facing St. Louis at Start of Year. By PAUL IWICKELSON PAYTONA' BEACH, Fia., (/?)-There'll be plenty of gas fumes, noise and class with the St. Louis Cardinals this year but whether they can cross the finish line first depends upon their infield. While the pitching situation has been improved with the acquisition of Lon Warneke from the Chicago Cubs as a teammate of the great Dizzy 0ean, who's certain to be out there chucking opening day, the infield problem has Manager Frankie Frisch walking the.floor nights. Frisch- has eight infielders, 'including himself, at the beautiful Daytona Beach camp, but of the lot only Leo "Lippy" Durocher is an established regular of major league caliber. And Durocher is no freshman anymore. , SECOND YEAR JINX? .Johnny Mizc should do at first. Yet, the second year often is fatal to a hopeful youngster. It's the year that usually .tells player's story. Frisch hopes ti use Stu Martin on second, i£ not him- .sclf, but Martin recently underwent an appendicitis operation and is 30 pounds underweight. · Durocher will be at shortstop. At third, the problem is whether Don Gutteridge. can. improve his hitting and field fast enough to fill the bill. Alt-hough -Mickey On'en,-excep- tional rookie, from Columbus, and Brusie Ogrodowski, last year's receiver, look easily good enough to take care of the catching duties in good style, both must com« through strongly to give the Cards what they need defensively .and offensively there. .I'-RISCH ADDS PITCHERS Frisch is optimistic about his pitching which collapsed and lost the pennant last season. Warnelce fits into the Cardinal baseball scenery perfectly and Frisch's 'problem now is to find pitchers !|who can give Dean and Lon the · help they must have. Paul Dean reports his sore arm healed but it's ~far too early to determine if he .can come back to his,-former heights, although Frisch,. knocking on wood, is counting him as . his number three pitcher. Big Jim Winford, an'erratic sort, with' ; lots ~6T\go\yiyC7Tooks -jiice^tlre"number four~"m'an with' Si Johnson, Bill McGee and Jess Haines listed for probably reserve duty. The outfield is well set with the same trio--Ducky Medwick, P e p p e r Martin and Terry Moore. Frisch is giving Moore extra batting practice this spring, seeing no reason why the fleet foote^ball hawk [fom Tennessee can't nit at least .300 as against his low average of .254 in 193G. "ONCE A DODGER . . ." Frenchy B o r d a g a r a y, who shaved off his goatee when Brooklyn sent him to ' the Gashouse Gang, and Don Padgett, heavy hitter who came up from Houston too late to make the Cardinals spring training roster, are going great and may land the outfield reserve jobs. The club as ? whole doesn't seem to have the punch and power it used to have but Frisch thinks it \vill_make up for that with greater speed and a tighter defense. "Give me good pitching, "speed and a tight, smart defensive club, and I'll get along without a roster of fence busters," remarks Frisch, who thinks the Cards have as good or better chance than the next club. HAVE OLD ZIPPER , The one priceless ingredient the Cards do have, however, is that winning, driving spirit. The old regulars, like Pepper Martin, Medwick, Dizzy Dean and Frisch, are winning ball players, always have been winning ball players and will be winning players in 1937. Those Cardinals will be lough, make no mistake about it. They can finish by a mile, or fourth, but no worse than that. And it everything clicks and Paul Dean comes back, the rest of the National league teams can expect more t h a n gas from that Cardinal gang. · They'll be dynamite. Eight Man Squad for Iowa m Splash Meet IOWA CITY, (/P)--An eight man University of Iowa swimming team will seek to retain its Big Ten conference title,at Bloomington, Ind., Friday and Saturday. Coach Dave Arrpbruster said the sfiuad would consist of Capt. Dick Westertield, Ray Walters, Bob Allen, Bob Reed, George Haskins, Bob Sweitzer, George Kershaw and Bob Christians.

Howard Gorman and Irying-Hepner,.-centers, ran third with-a dozen points, while George Wood, who had the best shooting average with five buckets in 10 trials, was fourth with 10 counters. The Mohawk basket-getting average was high, however, in the sectional meet, for the Mason Cityans connected on 37 attempts while-missing an even 97, for a .270 rating. The average ot opposing teams, with 10 goals in 68 trials, was .128. Mason City nearly tripled the score over its opponents in total poinls for the tournament, largely due to its 45 lo 6 victory over Thompson. Thompson's six points were the lowest total made against a Mason City team in history. LEGION GOLF TO OPEN BY MAY 1 Curly Hartman Already at Work on Clubhouse and Fairways. Mason City's American Legion community golf course , will be opened, weather permitting, on or before May 1, its board of directors announced Wednesday. J. S.

Only Missouri is not represented, chiefly because one school had to be left out, and the Tigers failed to present a really outstanding performer. The only unanimous choice was the towering Frank Groves, Kansas State center who wound up his third straight year as ;\ first all- star loam selection in a blaze of scoring glory. Other members of the first quintet are Jack Flemming of Iowa Stale and Tec Con- jielley of Oklahoma, forwards; and Robert Parsons o£ Nebraska and Fred Pralle of Kansas, guards. One Other Repeater. Pralle, backbone of the great Kansas defense, is the only other repeater. Connelley was promoted to the first team a f t e r two years as n second-team selection. Flcmming was on the second team two years ago as a sophomore hut missed out last year, and Parsons was promoted from the second team to the first. Parsons and Pralle are j u n - iors, the others seniors. Although 12 men received votes for first team berths, the only player who really threatened to oust one of the five chosen was Ray Noble, the Kansas j;ick-of-all- trades, who for the second straight year gained a second-team berth. Narrow Miss. Noble, a fine all-around player, received voles for both forward and guard and narrowly missed landing a place. Parsons, Connelley, Groves and Harry Sorenson of Nebraska also were nominated for two positions, Groves getting three votes for a forward berth, w i t h long Al Wellhnusen of Kansas, the center choice. Playing with a team which halted only .500 in the conference, Groves was the season's standout. He set a loop scoring record \viih an average of 15.1 points, bettering the mark cf H.I set by Ray Ebling of Kansas hist year. Cyclone Ural Star. Flcmmmg's performance also w;is cxlraorfEinary. The slim fnwa State captain, playing nn a team which failed to win a conference game, averaged 13.7 points for 10 games, and against Oklahoma came within one point of tying the individual scoring record for one game. Connelley, n hig. husky, dnvinit nlayer, averaged fl.3 points, and Parsons, aagrcssive as they come, piled UD the commendable average of 10 points. Pralle, although a consistent scorer, was more valuable for his sparkling defensive play. BRUINS SPREE.

The squad, champions of the North Iowa conference, has won 1!) games this season, three of them in sectional tournament play, and holds the Winncbago county championship in addition lo its conference and sectional laurels. , Tough opposition in the section at tournament was overcome by the Bison when they pushed past Swea City, 18 to 17 in an overtime period in their sectional meet at Burt, beating the Kossuth county champions in the second round and went on to beat a lougl Ringsted team, 25 lo 22 in the championship game last Saturday NEW TALK OVER TITLE BOUT HAS BERLIN AS SITE Joe Gould Against Tussle in Germany, Under Any Considerations. NEW YORK, (UP)--Steel Importer Dennis Scanlon advanced another plan Wednesday for holding the heavyweight title fight between Max Scluncling of Germany and Champion J i m m y Braddock in Berlin next summer. Boxing interests, however, re- gaidcd it as so much talk since Bi-addock's manager, Joe Gould, is against fighting in Germany for any consideration. Scanlon, who imports Swedish steel surgical implements, said that Braddock would be guaranteed $250,000, and that the promoters could get around the German law forbidding export of currency by designating ticket money as "free marks." About four months ago Scanlon announced a plan to hold the fight in Berlin, guaranteeing Braddock's share by selling enough tickets outside Germany. He talked to Col. John Reed Kilpatrick, president of Madison Square Garden, several limes by trans- Atlantic telephone about it. Returning lo the United States aboard the Queen Mary Tuesday, Scanlon said he conferred with German Promoter Walter Rothenburg and Dr. Weesenmayer, head of the Kepler bureau, a financial advisory body of the German government, about the fight.
