MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 21 1936 NINE WANT A MILLION? NOT FOR MIKE JACOBS! Out of the Pressbox -By Al Mitchell- SAINTS CELEBRATE THANKS TO the Commercial club of St. Ansgar . . . the Mason Cityans who were their guests Mon. day night had a fine time. The occasion? You take your three guesses. Of course it was to celebrate the basketball season completed last month! * * * · THANKS ALSO . . . to Coaches Louis Menze and Ray Donels of Iowa State college and Ames high school . . . I was glad to see the college coach again, and to hear the high school man speak for the first time. Coach Donels is my choice as the ideal public speaker . . . he doesn't know in advance what he's going to say, by his own admission; just waits for something to happen along and make a peg on which to hang a speech. * * * "I'D LIKE to go around and gloat a little, but that's not my only reason for wanting to talk at occasions like this," he said. "I believe basketball is a great game. If I could say ,'jmething to make boys realize that winning a thing once should be only a spur to further achievement, I'd feel that I had accomplished a lot. * * * "CHAMPIONSHIPS just don't 'happen, " said Coach Donels. "They have to be thought out. "One of the best athletics jokes is the old one that 'practice makes perfect.' Only perfect practice can " make perfection . . . basketball is a habit game, and it takes hours of monotonous drill to perfect it. * * * "ANOTHER ATHLETIC joke . a team doesn't win games because o: crazy superstitions. We had fans wearing the same necktie to every game this season . . . one fellow even had to rush from a party and home to change his suit before he cam' '.o a game, because he'd worn thaT ,uit when we won the time be fore. Victories don't happen because a fellow does one thing in a certain way. * * * "STILL ANOTHER athletic joke 'Athletics will make a great deposi in the life of an individual. 1 We re ceive a great thing from a spor only when we. give something whole some to it. "Out team enjoyed practice to gether, and the friendship of com peting teams. Team that we de the state tournament go -;Contlmied-.on iO), We're Proud of the fact that we have made loyal patrons of men who are m o s t exacting in their w a n t s a n d tastes. The services that make our store a favorite with these men will also make it your favorite. Hickey Bros. IN THE HOTEL HANFORD Mason City, Iowa ROMOTER HIDES OUT AS DAY FOR DEAL GOES PAST 3an Diego Backers Have Mike Scared With Giant Offer to Stage Battle. By PAUL MICKELSON Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK. (/P)--A word pic- .ure of a man who did not want a million dollars. fact, a man vho was scared almost speechless by the prospect of getting that much money. When Promoter Mike Jacobs of- Jered . to shift the Joe Louis-Max Schmeling fight to San Diego, Cal., for a million dollars on the line, he ivinked at his friends and said: "Well, that'll be the last of that offer. We can forget about those guys in San Diego. That million'll stop "em." But to Mike's astonishment and embarrassment the San Diego crowd wired that a million dollars was mere chicken feed out in the sunshine country. It would be forthcoming in a week, Mike was advised. 'Wow! What'll I do now shouted Promoter Mike to his friends. "I can't move this fighl out of New York. If I do I might as well close shop in New Yawk What'll I do, what'll I do?" 'I'll tell you what," advised a Solomon who hung heavily on Pro moter Mike's desk. "Tell 'em to ge that million here by Monday, Apri 20, or the whole offer is out That'll stop 'em." So Promoter Mike grinned to him self and laid down the million dolla: ultimatum to the San Diego crowd Then came Monday. Mike, as per habit, arrived at hi office at Forty-ninth and Broadwaj at 9 o'clock, but he didn't .stay then for more than 10 minutes. H ducked out to join several newspa per reporters who were arguing ove a $1.50 breakfast check. "Hell," said Promoter Mike. "Yoi guys think you have your worries What would you do if you wer afraid of having a. million bucks thrown on your desk?" 'Grab it and run," chorused th reporters, who let Mike pay th check and then hustled him off to Ms office, hoping the guy with a million dollars would come in. No sooner had he settled in his big chair than his girl secretary announced a caller." -' ' · ' : · "What does he look like, what's his name, and what does he want?" Promoter Mike asked nervously. "No, never mind. Tell him I'm not in." The telephone rang. Promoter Mike jumped. "I'm not in," he called. An armored car, carrying money probably to a midtown bank, passed. A reporter saw it. "There's that guy Michael Marco from San Diego with that million, Mike," he yelped. "Where, where?" gulped Promoter Mike as he scrambled to the window for a look. The reporters had their laugh. At 5:21 a big smile swept across Promoter Mike's face. He slapped his knee, strode outside his office and called for Walter St. Dennis, his publicity man. '"Walter," said Promoter Mike, "I want to make an announcement. Get some pa.per." "The San Diego men did not come up with the million dollars," read the announcement, "so we have canceled negotiations to hold the Louis-Schmeling fight in San Diego. It will be held at the Yankee stadium June IS." "And now," said Promoter Michael Strauss Jacobs, "I need a drink."

YANKS GET LOSS AS CONNIE HEARS HARDWOOD CRASH bridges, Rowe Belted Out of Box, Dean Gets First Victory of Year. By ANDY CLARKE Associated Press Sports Writer. The Philadelphia Athletics and he St. Louis Browns, American eague underdogs, are crowing after having jumped into the win column for the first time in the new season. Each with five straight defeats against them, they took the field donday to topple two of the mightiest powers of the circuit. The Athletics, displaying artillery reminiscent of a better day, downed the New York Yankees 12 to 11 while the Browns defeated the champion Detroit Tigers 9 to 6, belting Tommy Bridges and Schoolboy Rowe from the box in the These uprisings were the prime 'eatures of a day on which the Pittsburgh Pirates at last ended the jinx that Roy Henshaw held over them and Dizzy Dean, although touched for nine hits, recorded his first victory of the season. Single Wins Game. It took a pinch single by Loville (Chubby) Dean with the bases loaded in the ninth to bring the victory smile to the lean features of Connie Mack. The A's hammered Walter Brown and Bump Hadley for 14 hits but they were tiard-put to outscore the Yanks who whacked 10 bingles off the slants of Doyle and Turbeville. The Browns were trailing 4 to 0 going into the seventh inning when :hey opened the siege that resulted Grand-Dad of Lake Muskies Here's one that didn't get away.

Tommy Bridges retreated to the showers under that seventh inning strafing but Schoolboy Rowe, who has pitched the only two games the Tigers have won thus far, suffered a similar fate in the eighth. Elon Hogsett and Clarence (Red) Phillips saw duty on the hill for the Tigers before the carnage was over. Homer Beats Cubs. A mighty homerun clout by Gus Suhr, captain and first baseman of the Pirates, was necessary to banish the jinx that has seen Henshaw win seven straight games against the Pirates. Suhr's homer, the fourth of the game, came with two aboard and two out in the last half of the ninth and gave the Pirates a 9 to 8 margin over the Cubs. It was a fitting end to the reign of Henshaw who with a two run margin was confident he was starting where he left off last year. Henshaw yielded 14 hits, Lavagetto and Pep Young also hitting for the circuit. Chuck Klein got his fourth homer for the Cubs. Dean has Manager Frankie Frisch to thank for his first victory, an 8 to 7 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
