MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 20 · 1936 ELEVEN WEBSTER CITY OPENS BASEBALL TUESDAY IB ^ PREP TEAM GETS HEAVY SCHEDULE IN EARLY SEASON Swea City, Austin to Cross , Bats With Mohawks for Week's Program. BASEBALL Tuesday-Webster city vs. Moliiuvkp. Friday-- Swe.n- City vjt. Mohawks, Glohe-Ga*ettc Baseball School, Saturday-- All.lln. Minn., vs. Mohawks. Globe-Gacette Baseball School. FOOTBALL Tuesday-Spring 1'rnctlcf. TRACK Friday. Saturday-" Drake Relays, DCS MoineH. Mason City high school will tip .the lid on the local baseball season Tuesday afternoon at 3:20, when Webster City conies to oppose the defending state champion Mohawks at Roosevelt stadium. The Tuesday contest will open a packed schedule for the local team, which will play games here on Friday and Saturday also, and will be right back in action next Monday when Bristow high school is its opponent. Friday of this week will see Swea City opposing the local nine, while Saturday calls for a game with the tough Austin, Minn., Scar- lets coached by Phil Golberg. Yannigans Win 10-7. The Mohawks saw plenty of action last Saturday afternoon, as the "Yannigans" beat the "Regulars" 10 to 7 in a regulation high school- length contest. Starting Tuesday against Webster City will be Everett Fletcher and Johnny Thompson, pitcher and catcher who played a great game last summer for Mason City's American Legion Juniors, when the local squad won the fourth district championship. Jack Wallace will likely be as signed to first base against the Webster City Lynx, with either Orin Thompson or Jack Accurso folding the second sack. Harris Dil- .labough at shortstop and Bob Cookman, on third base, will complete the infield. Hitters in Outfield. The outfielders will be Ed Hert and Jim Mulcahy, who are likely to provide a good share of the batting power for the Mohawks this spring, with Mickey Cookman, an J 'American Legion regular last summer. -. Johnny Thompson handed out the big puncfcof- Saturday 1 a-squad^ame in the fifth inning when he homered over the right field wall with Leland "Rough-House" Huff, on the baselines to insure the Yannigans their victory. Webster City's Lynx will be tough opponent as Mason City starts its season. For those basketball fans who missed seeing All- Stater Don'Shelton in action at the finals session- of the state tournament, there's a chance to watch the big boy perform in the pitcher's box. Shelton Blanks Eldora. Shelton started his mound duty last week as the Lynx blanked a · weak Eldora team 14 to 1, and re- tired in the sixth inning without giving a hit to his opponents. Other members of the Webster City cage squad will also perform here Tuesday. Meyel "Bud" Haack, basketball guard, will catch; Bill Ostlund, star forward, will be in center field; Warren Maxon, .also a stellar forward, will be in left field; Ralph. Burton, a reserve guard, is a No. 1 second baseman, and Ralph Frank is a crack shortstop. Mason City junior college, without a game this week unless an out-of- town contest is booked, had a good ! afternoon Saturday and the Trojans defeated Pabst Blue Ribbon 10 to 5 j in another practice contest. Dietz Has Troubles. ' The first inning, saw Pabst score 4 runs, on a single hit, Floyd ' "Lefty" Detra's double. -.Quin "Doc" i Dietz had his share of early-season 1 troubles in the opening frame, \ plunking two batters in the ribs and walking three others. · I Gale Lane's big triple to the cen- \ ter field wall was -the hit of the day, i and put the Trojans ahead in the I fourth inning, after 'they had tied ! the score in the second. Orv Witte :' took over the pitching Job for the 1 jaysees in the fifth, and allowed a I pair of hits and a lone run in two 1 innings.

Radcliffe planked down the cold, hard cash. Actually--for when he bought his 1936 membership at the American Legion Community golf course, he paid the entire S10 in coins. The coins, ranging silver dollars on down, were all new and shiny. Each one was minted In 1935, ROCKY ROAD SET FOR TIGERS, CUB NINE TO FOLLOW Champions Take Brace, Win m Sunday Contests as Leaders Cop Games. By ANDY CLAKKE Associated Press Sports Writer The Cleveland Indians and the Boston Red Sox are showing a total disregard for the prediction of experts that Detroit is destined to repeat its triumphant march of last year. Six days along the way, each with four games won and one lost, these teams are providing definite grounds for the contention that a rocky road beckons the mighty men of Cochrane. The Red Sox haven't had to use a relief hurler yet and Bob Grove and Wes Ferrell have started off in a manner to make rival managers wrinkle their brows. The Indians haven't needed good pitching thus far, for the batsmen have settled issues on pure offensive power. Champions Wake Up. The speedy progress of these two teams in the American league and the Giants in the National Sunday awoke the respective champions to their responsibilities. Detroit barged into the win column with Schoolboy Rowe pitching a 5 to 0 shutout over the Chicago White Sox while the Cubs, with Chuck Klein belting out a brace of homers, collected 16 hits for a 16 to 6 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Rowe allowed the White Sox only five hits as he scored his second shutout of the season. Goose Goslin parked the ball in the upper deck of the right field stands for. a homer while Al Simmons made a big stride toward justifying his purchase by collecting a pair of hits. Herman Hits Again. Billy Herman, who led the league in two-baggers last season, hit his sixth double in as many games this year as the Cubs came to life after taking two lickings from the Reds. Billy got his double in the seventh to depopulate the loaded sacks, after singling twice earlier in the game. The Athletics made a surprising stand against the Red Sox even though they did go down 2 to 1 for their fifth straight defeat. It was a pitching duel in which Ferrell, backed by errorless ball, emerged victor over Dusty Rhodes; a former Red Sox twirler. Each pitcher allowed five singles. Tribe Slaughters Browns. The Indians continued t h e i r slaughter of pitchers by sending the St. Louis Browns to their fifth straight defeat 13 to 6. The Browns got 12 hits off Mel Harder who went the route for Cleveland but they couldn't match the stream of runs the Indians sent across the plate. Hal Schumacher, who was yanked in the opening game against the Dodgers, found the victory trail against the Boston Bees as the Giants notched their fifth straight win, i to 1. He held the Bees to four hits, two of which came in the last frame. The St. Louis Cards defeated the Pirates 7 to 3 as the pair of favorites made dismal showings. Vaughan Fails to Hit. Arky Vaughan. last year's leaguj batting champion, failed to get a hit in four trips to the plate, letting the crowd down when he rolled out a weak grounder with two men on base and two out. Bud Hafey, whose hitting has brought shades of his famous Uncle Chick, allowed three Cardinal runs when he dropped one fly and misjudged another in the second inning.

CHUCK KLEIN HAS OLD SPOT AMONG BASEBALL STARS Chicago Swatter Gets Three Wallops, Quits Worrying Over Trade Stories. By EARL HILLIGAN Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO, (IP) -- The Chicago chapter of baseball's "I told you so," club gave three rousing cheers Monday for Charles H. (Chuck) Klein, about whom the game's trade winds whistled all last winter yet failed to blow out of the Chicago Cubs' outfield. The cheers were for Klein's performance Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds, when he belted two homeruns. The circuit smashes gave Chuck a total of three for the season and the leadership in this department of both leagues. . Worth Purchase Price. The result was that the "I told you so-ers" contended: 1--That Klein is far from being past his peak as a National league fence buster; 2--that he will make a brilliant comeback after falling below the .300 mark last year; and 3-that he will prove to all and sundry that he still can be considered well worth the ?65,000 and three players Chicago gave the Phillies for him three year's ago. All last winter the hot stove league buzzed about the "impending" deal which would send Klein back to the Phillies in exchange for Curt Davis, pitcher, plus other valuable considerations by the Cubs. The "deal" bobbed up regularly; the only thing wrong with it was that it didn't go through. Quit Worrying. "I decided the thing to do was quit reading the stories about my trade," laughed Klein last night before he departed on the Cub train for Pittsburgh. "Every time I picked up a paper I saw I was going to be traded. So I quit worrying about it and concentrated on mak ing good this season. "What did I do to get into such good condition last winter? Not a thing except bowl a little, fish for two weeks and quit worrying. I'm confident I'll have one of my best seasons--maybe not lead the league like I did in 1933, but good enough to be up near the leaders. The National league pennant winners? Why, the Cubs, of course!"

MARKS FALL AT TUTOR CONTEST Eight New Records, Two of Them High School, Set at Relay Meeting. . CEDAR FALLS, (.T--Eight new records, six collegiate, two high school, were in the Iowa State Teachers college relay books today. Performing in perfect track weather Saturday, twenty-five high Schools and five colleges conducted a wholesale raid on the relays' records. Christie of Wilson high.

DES MOINES, (.T)--Berlin and the Olympics--that's the ultimate goal of many spike-shod young men who'll compete here April 24 and 25 in the twenty-seventh renewal of the Drake relays. The lure of possible qualification for semifinal Olympic trials and an attractive array of relays and special events will bring nearly 2,000 participants to Des- Moines. Thousands of track fans throughout the middlewest, drawn by the lustre of the Drake carnival, will attend the two-day classic, designated for the first time as an official Olympic qualification test. There will be 11 Olympic events, the first three place winners qualifying for the semifinal Olympic meets. Included on the program for the men seeking to represent Uncle Sam in the international competition across the sea next summer are the 440-yard hurdles and the hop- step and jump, both revived here after several years' absence. Cunningham Runs. Glenn Cunningham, the barrel- chested Kansan who has run a mile faster than any other human, will be one of the headline attractions. The University of Iowa graduate student will race on all-star field in a 1,000 yard feature race Saturday. Glenn hopes to crack the world mark of 2:10 for the distance, and just to make certain the big fellow gets all the competition he needs, Drake officials lined up three topnotch opponents, each with a chance of whipping the Kansas flier. EIroy Robinson of Fresno, Cal.. State college, national collegiate half mile champion; Harry Williamson of North Carolina, Canadian half mile titleholder, and Ray Sears, former Butler distance sensation, will oppose Cunningham. Record Holder Runs. Ray Ellinwood of Chicago university, who flashed to a new world indoor mark of -.48.9 in the quarter mile in the Big Ten meet, will appear in a special 440-yard race Saturday. One of his opponents will be Sunny Hcg, Northwcstern's great quarter miler. Universities, colleges and high" schools from every section of the country have entered the games. The special events and relays have drawn one of the largest number of pre-mcet entries since Maj. John L. Griffith, Big Ten athletic commissioner, founded the carnival 27 years ago. Pitch Johnson, relay director, believes at least two special event marks are certain to fall. Cornelius Warmerdam of Fresno State, a sky-riding pole vaulter who has done 14 feet, 2 Ms inches, seems certain to better the Drake mark of 13 feet, 11 inches by Tom Warne of Northwestern in 1930. High Jump to Fall. Harold Osborn's mark of 6 feet, 6 inches made by the Illinois star back in 1922 is the other record apparently doomed. Linn Philson of Drake and John Croson of Fresno State both are capable of wiping out the high jump record. Other individual entries, prominent members of the track world's Who's Who, are Charles Fenske of Wisconsin. Don Lash of Indiana, Mark Panther and Francis Crelz- meyer of Iowa, Floyd Lochner of Oklahoma, Bobby Grieve of Illinois, Ward Cuff of Marquette, Jay Berwanger of Chicago, Don Elscr of Notre Dame and Wayne Slocum of Minnesota. A huge massed band of 1,971 pieces will furnish music for the relays. Players will come from high schools and colleges all over Iowa and will be seated in a special section of the stadium. A relays beauty queen, chosen from colleges and universities entered in the games, will be crowned Saturday afternoon before the start of the track program. ^Sports in Shorts WEEK-END SFOISTS By The Associated Press.
