MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 1933 17 ROYAL DANIELI May Head Grand National List U, S. KEG STARS ON DRIVES WITH BID FOR RECORD Perfect Game Steals Show in Singles at American Congress CLEVELAND, (U.R) -- Hermann Undertakers.of St. Louis, Mo., national match champions who dethroned Hank Marino's Milwaukee Heil Quality Products'after a lour year reign, made their bid Jor world's title honors over the three-game route in the American Bowling Congress championshipb Thursday. Missing the services ol Lowell Jackson who performed heroically against the Heils, the Hermann quintet has Fred Taff who with Buzz Wilson placet eighth in the doubles in the lasi A. B. C. at Chicago. In addition to Cone Hermann and Taff, the St. Louisans have Sara Garofalo, Cliff Dcwees and Ray Holmes. The Hermanns hold the all-time high senc- tioncd league series of 3.7D7 posted on Jan. 2", 1937, on their home drives. Walter Weltoian, another sharp- ! shooter ot national reputation, brought his highly rated Zierplfs from Findlay, Ohio, and the Firestone Tires arrived from Aloron, Ohio, captained by Harry Souers who teamed with Clyde Sumeri to capture the two-man title in 1935. Echoes of a 300-game performance Wednesday by 53 year old William McGeorgc of Kent, Ohio, will linger lonjr in the current A. B. C. arena and longer in the records. Boasting a moderately fast ball with a slight "come-in," the Kent cost-accountant reached bowling's ball of fame in the first game of his singles appearance. He added games of 173-166 to reach the day's high three-game series of 639. It was the sixth perfect game in A, B. C.'s 39 year history. Out of the Pressbox AL BY MITCHELL They Have to Sling It... 'I've got a lotta offense to be junked, if I don't find somebody to sling that ball," drawled grinning Jim Yeager early Wednesday evening. The Iowa State college football coach, whose Cyclones were the outstanding team in the state last season, as well as one of the nation's star outfits, visited North Iowa Wednesday. He spoke for Cyclone alumni meeting, held at the Clear Lake Country club. 0 «'' * * * * * * * * * Spring practice got under way Thursday at Iowa State college, Jim was telling us . . . a n d the hunt will be on for replacements in eight positions. The curly- headed coach will have to find tackles, runners '. . . and most of all, a 1 passer who can do some of the things Everett Kischer did. It's just possible, too ... that the fellah who can sling that ball in the right spots will be the laddy who earned all-state recognition at Mason City high school with his- pitches and catches. Jack Wallace, barring scholastic and other pitfalls that beset football hopefuls, has a pretty fair chance of being the one to fill Kischer's shoes. « * s Hank Wilder, thinks Jim, will be one of the best. The big back, one of the midwest's leading ground-gainers, came back to spring drills weighing 215 pounds . . . .about 10 above his fighting left. » f S,' Tough to lick this year and next will be the Missouri sophomore of last fall, Paul Chdstman . . . who was just as accurate as Kischer with his tosses, and "could throw 'em the length of the field." FIGHT RESULTS By The Associated Press KROVIDENCE--Albert Mancini, 124*; Providence, stopped Irish Jimmy GUli- gan, 125*;. Buffalo (8). It's been a long time . . . but new statistics offer conclusive evidence of why the 1938 Iowa State college football eleven was one of the finest teams ever to represent the state of Iowa. Jim Yeager's Cyclones and his individual aces ranked at or near the top among football teams of the midlands in nearly every phase of play, according to final figures for 1938 compiled by the American Football statistical bureau. o * a Iowa State, in addition, made an impressive showing on a nationwide basis. The Cyclones ' were threatened among the nation's leading teams in percentage of victories, .875; were fifteenth in defense against rushing per game, 89.6 yards . . . eighth in defense against rushing per play, 2.13 yards. Hank Wilder, the Cyclone's hammering junior fullback, led the nation's ball carriers in average yardage gained per game, 99.3. Though he played in less than six games before an injury laid him up for the season, Wilder's total yardage of 545 ranked first in the midlands and thirteenth in the nation.

PETERSBURG, .Fla., (UP.)-The Yanks played their third straight game against their own farmhands, as they met the Ne- wavk Bears.

Everett Kischer, Iowa State co- captain and quarterback, was the Midland leader in the AFSB "best total performance" rating. He topped the midlands and ranked ninth nationally in to- la! offense rating . . . was the section's third best passer, fourth high on yardage from rushing, the fifth high scorer, seventh best punter, and ranked first in runbacks of kicks. Chuck Heilemari, all-Big Six end who won additional glories in the East-West game at San Francisco, topped the midlands in pass-receiving and finished second in the United States. Heileman caught 29 of Kischer's passes_for 320 yards of gain. * =u * Gordon Reupke, Cyclone senior halfback, ivas the seventh leading ground gainer in the midlands. a * e Here's how the Cyclones ranked over (he midlands in various phases of the game: Team standings--Second to Oklahoma. 875.

PERCY United Press Staff Correspondent LONDON, (U.R)--Bets from 10 shillings to a pound pouring from the pockets of clerks, shop girls and hackmen on the nose of Royal Danieli to win Friday's running of the grand national steeplechase may shove the big Irish jumper into the favorite's role at the final call-over. Jliss Dorothy Paget's Kilslar remained the big money choice at 15-2, and Sir Alexander Blaguire's Workman was liked second best at 9-1. Royal Danieli's odds have shortened from 20-1 to about 10% to 1 in the last week and probably will take another dive when the final prices are reached in the bookies' small and exclusive Victoria club. Our American Choice Only one of the three American owned horses is given much chance to win the 4V' mile chase and that is Royal Mail, an 18-1 shot owned by Mrs. Camille Evans former show girl. Royal Mail, only former winner entered, cleared the 30 tortuous jumps and finishet ahead in 1937 for the late Hugh Lloyd Thomas. Mrs. Mario Scott, whose Battleship carried the stars and stripes to victory last year, will send War Vessel, another son of Man O'War, to the post, but you can get 33-1 she will not win with him. Tile other U. S. entry, Mrs. L,ouis E. Stoddard's lano, is quoted at 44-1. H. C.

Jim Yeager, Iowa Stale college football coach, spoke at a. meeting of Cerro Gordo and Worth county alumni held at Clear Lake Wednesday night. Gathered around to talk a little shop before the dinner meeting were Roger Boxven, former Iowa State quarterback and assistant coach at Mason City high school, Coach Yeager, with Coaches Clayton "Chick" Sutherland and J. A. "Judge" Grimsley, both of Mason ClCty. (Lock photo, Kayenay engraving.) vorite this year, but because of a couple of poor early races and an inflammation of the forefoot, he was nearly scratched this winter. However, last week at' Baldoyle in Eire, he showed perfect jumping form. Kilstar Unpopular Favorite Kilstar is one of the most unpopular favorites in the 100-year history of the race, but has been backed to the skies by professional gamblers. He has not caught on with the public because of a mediocre record and the experts' opinion that he is inclined to mis- time his jumps. Workmen has drawn much support because he finished third behind Battleship and Royal Danieli last year, but the experts contend he was a very tired horse and does not seem to have the stamina to" win such a longr race. Since final acceptors were announced last week, the only scratch lias been Jovial Judge, which suffered an injured knee Wednesday, and a field of 37 probably will go to the, post. Ten-Score Keglers to Bowl in 6th Classic North Iowa bowlers will start pins clicking Saturday in the first session of an event that is expected to attract a field of more than 200 to Mason City during three weekend schedules.

Defeat for the Americans and Red Wings in their best-of-mrce series will mean elimination. Another loss by the Rangers would put them in the unenviable position of having to win four out of the last five games in their best- of-seven playoff with the powerful Boston Bruins. Wingman Bryan Hexlall and Goalie Davie Kcrr, both of whom suffered shoulder injuries against the Bruins Tuesday night, will be supplanted by a pair of rookies up from the Philadelphia Ramblers of the [International-American league when the Rangers face off against the Bruins in Boston garden. Bert Gardner will be in the nets while Bill Carse will pinch hit for Hextall. Boston won (he first game 2 to 1. The Americans also will be without the services of their regular goalie, Earl Robertson, \vhen they attempt to avenge their 4 to 0 defeat by Toronto. Robertson, injured in the final game of the regular season, is still hobbling on a cane and Alfie Moore, who failed to stop the rain of Leaf goals Tuesday night, will be in the Amerk nets. Detroit is expected to open up with a wide-open attack in an attempt to get by the tight goal tending demonstrated by Rookie Claude Borque ill Montreal's 2 to 0 victory in the first game. Borque, nly a year out of the amateurs, layed sensationally to blank De- roit and the Wings know they vill have to go all out to survive he eliminations.
