It took the Mohawks most of the first quarter to get rolling and solve the Comet zone defense, but once this was accomplished. Judge Crimsley's men started a withering bombardment of the basket that did L. it let up until the final buzzer. * * * Pee Wee Day, \vh« got busy in the third quarter and marked up eight points on four field goals, was high scorer of the evening \ v ith 11 points. John /Holraen, lanky Cardinal and Black center, followed up Day with 10. * * * What Ihc Charles CHy club lacked in quality of shooting, it made up in quantity. The Comets had plenty of tries at the basket, but made good on field goals pnly six times, and muffed 10 of 16 charity tosses. Both Pee Wee Day and Holmen contributed to the winning of the game with good rebound work and tip-in shots. * * * The contest opened at a slow pace, with the Mohaws pulling away to a 3-0 lead on a field goal and free throw by Lloyd Klein. Dennis Smith and- Dean Laun countered w i t h like scores and the game was tied up. Charity tosses by Klein and Banks kept (he contest deadlocked at 4 apiece as the opening period drexv to it close. * * ¥ Then came the barrage. Fats Day connected on a long one, Holmen followed this up with two successive buckets and Klein poured in another before the stunned Charles City club could get its bearings. By that time the quarter was over and the Mohawks commanded a 12-4 lead. The second period saw little scoring done. Each team garnered four points -- Mason City on a field goal by Klein and two free throws by Pee Wee Day and Holmen, while the Comets counted on two baskets by Laun and Bryan. * * * The third quarter was all Pec Wee Day. Of the nine points Mason City scored to hike its total to 25 at the conclusion, Day made eishl of them on four quick goals. * * ¥ Charles City's only three points in this stanza were collected on a long shot by Blunt and a free throw by Don Mills. Again in the final quarter the visitors were outscored, this time 13 to 1. It was a rough period, with Grimsley giving his reserves a chance to show what they could do. In all, 25 personals were committed, but were spread throughout the players so that no one left the game on four fouls. * * * The Mason City sophomores made it 3 perfect evening by pulling into an early lead and staying there to down the Charles City yearlings, 30-21. * * ¥ The Mohawks will be kept busy again Saturday, night when East Des Moines comes to towr again to put the Cardinal and B'ick winning .=treak on the bloci ; !t will be a conference affair, starting immediately after the conclusion of the sophomore clash between Ma- .son City and Clear Lake.

Illinois led from the outset to the finish of the f ? M C K season and won the title by a margin of three full games. The title fight probably will be much closer this year * * ¥ Illinois is favored to get off to a winning start at the expense of Michigan even though the Illini will not be at full strength for the contest. Ken Menke, brilliant forward who scored 134 points in league play j ast year, suffered a foot injury early in the week and is out of action. "Chuck" Fowler, a letterman, will replace him. Jn early season competition Illinois won five games, including one from Stanford, the national col egiate champions in 1342. and lost one. Tiie defeat was to Camp Grant. * * * Michigan is one of the three BIB Ten teams that completed its early season play without a defeat. The Wolverines won five straight and appeared considerably, improved over the sauad that finished the race last year in a seventh place tie Coach B e n n y Oosterbaan's quintet doesn't have the class of Illinois, ho-,vever. * * * · Johnny Kotz. a burly forward who established an all-time conference mark of 242 points last season, holds the key to Wisconsin s chances. If Kotz cai approach that high scoring level he may make the Badgers a real threat. Kotz showed all his old- time form in early games when he scored 124 points in seven non- conference games. On the basis of Kotz and better all-around balance Wisconsin Si, ,\',°l" C , d . ovei " Northwestern. The Wildcats gained supporters a week ago when they beat Great Lakes" powerful team by a 12- point margin. As a scoring threat to challenge Kotz, Northwestern has the versatile Otto 'Graham who was the runner-up in the conference point-making race in 1942. Indiana looked the part of a contender when it moved through its pre-conference schedule without a defeat in seven starts * * * Although the Hoosiers probably will be without the services of their leading scorer and veteran forward, Ralph Hamilton, they still get the nod over Ohio Stale. Hamilton injured his back in a game early in the week against Butler. * * * The return of Don Mattson has increased the effectiveness of Minnesota's quintet and the Gophers should down the inexperienced Iowa outfit. Chicago puts an all-time losinf record on the block when it meets Purdue. The Maroons have lost 31 straight big ten games and the end of the streak isn't in sight. Decorah Five Beats New Hampton, 22-21 NEW HAMPTON -- Decorah nigh school cagers defeated New Hampton here Friday night, 22*l, in a Northeast Iowa conference game.

A crowd of 10,416 jammed the subways to watch Bob Montgomery of Philadelphia knock out Chester Rico of New York, in Madison Square garden. That was 41G more than Promoter M i k e Jacobs expected even before the ban was announced. * # * Approximately 1,409 were on the sidelines at N e w Haven, Conn., as Cornell defeated Yale in an Eastern league basketball game. B u s e s and trolleys brought the crowd, Yale's largest of the season, to the contest. * * * However, the ban did work a revision in the schedules of the colleges not benefittcd by being located in populous areas and having the advantages of public '-ansportation facilities. Grove City's game with St.' Vincent, both Pennsylvania schools, was postponed 'because of the ban and Siena, one of the basketball powerhouses of upper New York state, moved its contest with Peterson, N. J., Teachers to Schenectady. * * * Slippery Rock Teachers, St. Francis and Thiel, more Pennsylvania colleges, abandoned their cage programs prior to Friday night and Waynesburg indicated it might follow suit. It was Waynesburg's team thai saved gas coupons to make the trip to Duquesne, arrived there safely before the ban was announced and then' couldn't get the fuel to return home. * * * High school basketball circuits seemed hardest hit with two New York circuits announcing suspension of the winter schedule and numerous individual contests being cancelled. In other sports, bowling alley owners reported a drop of 10 to 20 per cent in business, ski resort owners advertised trains would be met fay horse drawn vehicles and the University of Virginia cancelled the schedule o£ its swimming team.

Angott Will Try Comeback After Layoff By JACK CUDDY NEW YORK, (U.R)-Timing is a- important in the business of shing your neighbor's proboscis ence the two-timing of Sammy Angott, retired lightweight champion, which could come only from l expert. We mean: (O Angolt, the wild walloper of ashington, Pa., announced his ultra b H W retirement as lightweight champion ot the world at sunset on Nov. 13. just a couple of hours before Bcuu Jack of Georgia stepped into Madison Square Garden's ring and stopped Atlie Slolz of Newark N. J., in the seventh round. * * * (2) AiiRoit, the completely retired champion, announced his return to the ring at sunset on ·Jan. 8. jusi a cou»Ie of hours before Bob Montgomery, Philadelphia N'eirro, stopped Chester Hico of New York at the Garden in the seventh round. Between those two announcements, there were wild rumors in the press that Angott had been forced to retire because he refused to be a calspaw of gangsters. Angott and liis manager, Honest Charley Jones, denied these rumors with open throttle. Personally, we--just a Nevada boy in the big city--are convinced that 27-year-old Angott~a guy with a wife 1 and a couple of kids and a nice home down at Washington--went through the retirement act as the only out that would have prevented him from being either forced into a crooked fight or risking the safety of himself or his loved ones. We have known Angolt and his manager, Goodtimc Charlie, for years. We have known (hem on occasions when just one quick grand would have changed their financial outlook. But never would they countenance anything crooked to make a dishonest dime. Whether they were forced out of the game temporarily by gangster guns we do not know. But we do know that they are "purists" in every sense of the boxing word. And for that reason we extend a hearty: "Welcome back to Sammy Angott!" Frankly we do not know. Fortunately Angott is not claiming the title. He is willing to start at the bottom and fight up, because he figures he can lick any lightv/eight in the world today,- including Bean J;ick. Maybe he's right. At least, we can't remember nny lightweight who licked the Washington windmill in the past three years. And he never was choosey. l ! ) . ion as an athletic director throughout the east. He's playing in an awfully ex- ci t . - ment he's Pvt.

Similarities mark the teams find the games may develop into fairly even affairs. Each has lost only one game--Iowa to Nebraska, 52-43, and Minnesota to Dartmouth, 48-37; average height favors Iowa by less than an inch, and Minnesota has three sophomore starters to Iowa's two. Further, Minnesota beat Carleton by 6 points, Iowa by 3, and South Dakota Slate by 10 points, Iowa by G. The heavy scoring of Tom Chapman and 'Ben Trickey will be counted on by Iowa. Chapman has averaged n\'- points a game while Trickey has 14% their total of 123 points being 3G greater than that of all other Iowa players. Chapman may be somewhat hindered by a broken nose suffered in scrimmage, but will wear a protective mask. Iowa's defense, headed by the sophomore guards, will be tested by Minnesota's star sophomore forwards, Wesley Windmiller and Dave Ruliffson.

Earlier this season the r. quintet beat Holy Family Charles City, 36 to 33. Game time is 2:30 o'clock at the State street gymnasium. Once again Holy Family will be up against a zone defense, something it had trouble breaking in the previous encounter. The locals will be strengthened by the return of Baldwin, who was injured in the Johawk game, and Muche. who missed the St. Joe game by sickness. The starting lineup will probably see Baldwin and McCaulcy at the guards. Muehe at center and Jones and Mataloni at the forward posts. The two second teams will get together the same afternoon.
