MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 12 · 1937 NINE MASON CITY NIPS BUFFALO CENTER 19-18 ¥ * * * * * : * * * * 1 - [ * * 1 * - - ' * * * * - + 1 i * t * * * * » · * * * t Records Don't Mean Thing--As Humboldt Upsets Iowa Falls Five Hook Shots Spectators to Hang Light Fixtures for Home Contest HOME BOYS CHOICE Mohawks Have to Play Better.Game to Go to Final Meet. BY H. B. HOOK ; WEBSTER CITY--They say that -,000 spectators can jam into Washington Central gym here , , . If a half dozen wild fans take to each of the three light fixtures . . . and they'll surely be there to see ·Webster City meet Marshalltown. It'll be the biggest night in Webster City since the Illinois Central came to town in 1855. If Webster City beats Marshalltown It'll be the greatest night since old man Webster himself settled on the prairie here. The dopesters say the Lynx can outclaw the Bobcats and predict t h a t . . . with advantage of their own floor . . . the Webster City boys will get a free trip to the slate capital next week. At cny rate, Marshalltown, Mason City and Humboldt will have to show better form than they have so far, if one of them is going to stop the Lynx from moving their lair to Des Moines next week. But let's forget the dope and the records. That's what Humboldt did against Iowa Falls. The Cadets were sure "that they were going to climb the spiral state house tower steps next week . . . and why shouldn't they have been? Iowa Falls had won the North Central conference title . . . while Humboldt had won only one and lost five games in. the same circuit . . . Including one to Iowa Falls. ··f ' * * Instead of thinking about that, Humboldt concentrated on bottling up Claude :Santee and John Franklin, :two Cadet boys who Usually rack up from 10 to 15 points each game. Result . . . that Santee got five points and Franklin went scoreless. Scores in the Mason City-Buffalo Center game were tied so many times that fans looking at the Scoreboard began to think they were seeing double . . . Seven .-times there .\yere twin figures for : bpth teams '.".:, t\vice in the first "(fuarter at-2i2-.andi4-.4-'. i . four : times in the ! ':third quarter at 7-7, 8-8, 9-9 and 10-10 . . . and at the end of the fourth quarter and first overtime period, ,17-17. Buffalo Center is probably right that . . . Mason City didn't win, but merely has the privilege of going in the tournament . . . 'Of course it goes down on books as a win for the Mohawks. When two teams play even all the .way and end up evenly neither is loser. But if Maso_n City didn't win, it at least didn't let the Bison win either. * * It was Buffalo Center's first loss in a total of 20 starts this season. Funny . . . how many different ways that game could have ended. Jack Arkwright had a chance to win for the Bison with u free throw 15 seconds before the game ended. In the first overtime period, Everett Fletcher missed two free throws and Wayne Wood missed one for the Mohawks . . . while Warren Smith shot wide on his charity toss for Buffalo Center. In the second overtime session . . . in which victory was to be declared for the first team to score two points . . . Carlyle Kopp had another chance to win for the Bison'but missed one of two'free throws . . . and Jack Wallace missed another for Mason City. A "time out" was all Wallace needed to catch his second wind and come back to swish in a pretty one under the basket for those important two points and victory. Mason Cityans who plan to see ' the next game had better bring lunch and be in their seats by 5 o'clock . . . o r wire ahead and have small boys hold their seats at the price of a couple of all-day suckers and a candy bar. First games start at 6 o'clock and only those without aching corns need be interested in trying to get in after that.

The whole town's talking! Now that its second wind has arrived after that Mason City victory over Buffalo Center on Thursday night --the home folks are walking around shaking hands with themselves--and hoping that Lady Luck'continues to sit at the right hand of Coach J. A. "Judge" Grim si ey. Frank Merriwell never did a job half so well as Jack Wallace did it Thursday night. There was every item for a movie thriller as t h e M o h a w k s won, 19 to 18 in two overtime periods. M a s o n C i t y defeated the Bison, in its opening district tournament basket- b a l l g a m e a t Webster C i t y; w h e n Wallace WALLACE plunked through a little tip up shot under the basket, to win and end the game under special tournament rules, in a second overtime period. It had been a deliberate, waiting battle all the way. Two essentially slow-breaking teams; sparring for an opening in tight defensive lines--that's the picture Mason City led 2 to 1 at the end o£ the first period. Howard Gorman, Mohawk center, had dribbled out of a corner to shoot the lone basket. Hold Lead at Half. The Mohawks led, 7 to 4 at the half. Wallace had set one in from the free throw line, Gorman had slapped the ball away from Warren Smith, Buffalo Center guard and gone dribbling in for a short goal, and Wayne Wood had pushed through a free try. Carlyle Kopp, Buffalo Center guard, had scored his team's only field goal, going under the backboard for the shot Mason City leci, 12 to 10, at the end of the (hire! period. George Wood and Everett Fletcher had scored -free throws, and the blond forward had found an opening for a short toss just before the quarter ended to keep the Mohawks in front. Buffalo Center had scored three points in a bunch to keep in the game as Smith caged a goal and added a free throw on a foul by George Wood. Mohawks Stretch Edge. Things began to look up as Fletcher poked a long one through the strings almost from the opening tipoff of the fourth period, and Wayne Wood breezed under the backboard to cage another. But they didn't look so fine when Jack Arkwright and Lloyd Kiewiet, Buffalo Center forward and pivot- man, dribbled deep through the Mason City defense to score, and the Bison led, 17 to 16. There was just 45 seconds left ·when Wallace drew a free trial to tie (he score. And from there the action was hectic. Arkwright missed being a hero when his free throw was wide, with 15 seconds to go. The fourth period ended at 17-17. It was still a lie as the whistle blew at the end of the first overtime period--after Fletcher and Smith had each missed free chances on a double foul, Fletcher had missed a second try, and Wayne Wood had hobbled a third. Tournament Rules. Tournament rules provided that the team scoring two points first in the second extra period would win, and Carlyle 'Kopp started right out to get a Buffalo Confer victory with a free throw as Wallace drew a foul. But he missed a second trial. Then, Wallace missed a chance to tie the score when his free throw fell short as Smith fouled out at the contest. The Mohawks called for time out. The whistle blew again, Mason City broke up the Buffalo Center offense--passed to Wallace, under the basket--and the game was over as his shot curled into the ring, at 10 to 18. GLOBE-GAZETTE 'S SECTION Diz Dean Can Stay Home and Win Plenty of Dough Great One Makes Money in Pitch-Quarter Game at Florida Home City. By EDDIE BRIETZ ST.

Not a word lias been heard from Joe DiMaggio Baseball men, who can't imagine a Yankee hibition tour through the south and southwest without Gehrig to draw the customers, believe Lou will get his $40,000 if he waits long enough, but one and all sav Colonel Huppert is just stubborn to let DiMaggio sit at home a year before paying the 525,000 he demands . . . In the meantime, the camp awaits the Ruppert arrival, now set for Sunday. CINCY--IN TWO YEARS Jimmy Hamilton of Nashville predicts Cincinnati will win the pennant in two years . . .

Need Luck Wilson Has Nothing Set for Season but Few Good Flmgers. (NOTE: This is another ot a Eeries in major league nennant . prospects.) By PAUL MICKELSON WINTER HAVEN, Fla., ( The cold hard truth 'about the Philadelphia Phillies is that they'll be miracle men to stay out o£ the National league cellar in 1337. Riddled by player sales, which have netted $350,000 in cash and no player talent over the last three years, the Phillies haven't much to work on except for player-manager Jimmy Wilson and a couple of pitchers. The outlook is darker than dark. Wilson, who bragged about a great pitching staff last spring and then was criticized by owner Gerald Nugent when the mound staff bogged down during the season, is back shouting praises of his hurlers again this year. He thinks he'll have a pitching staff second to none with Claude Passau and Bucky Walter his mainstays. Must Have Fielders. Men must be developed for infield and outfield duty but no one with the complexions of a good reliable major leaguer of first rate calibre can be found around the camp; of course, it's early and a few finds may be uncovered bul good ball players are shaken off the tree early. Philadelphia's pitching weaknesL last season, when the hapless club dropped to the cellar, apparently has been patched up with the acquisition of two southpaw pitchers Bob BurkeJAvh'o once pitched a no- hit game for Washington, and Wayne La Master, winner of I; games for Louisville in .'MO. "I. we'd had one decent left handei last season, we'd have won at leas 15 more games,"declared Managei Wilson.. Rool-ic Is Star. The rest of the pitching stnff undoubtedly will consist o£ Orville Jargons, Joe Bowman and Hugh Mulcahy, a rookie wiio won 25 at Hazeltc'H ot the New York-Pennsylvania league. Wilson is pjirti- cularly high on Mulcahy, a big fellow with a lot of zip on the hide Dolph Camilli, at present a member of the holdout union, and Pink Whitney have first and thirc base, respectively clinched. De Young, up from Oklahoma City and Bill Andrus, recruit frorr Little Rock, are battling it out toi second with George .Charcin, purchased from Nashville, hot candidate for the shortstop post. Leo Norris, who didn't satisfy Wilson as a fielder around short last year also may get a chance at second. Gooil Hit--NO Field. The outfield is set with familial players who can hit but who nren' exactly famous fly hawks. Chuck Klein and Johnny Moore have two garden spots set while Morris Arnovich, Hershel Martin, a fine looking rookie from Houston, or the fleet footed Fred Tauby of Dallas are out for third outfield job. Wilson is trying a new stunt this last month. Jimmy bought himself a spy glass and began combing t h e countryside f o i y o u n g , willing fellows who wouldn't mind paying their expenses to camp for a tryout Right now he's got about 25 o them--none of them on the club roster and Jimmy's hoping he might discover at least a couple o: prospects for development. ONLY ONE"FACT OXING TANGLES Vlike Jacobs Has Contract With Next Holder of Heavy Laurels. (Tills is tnc second stories on the i n s i d e ^ lioxill? business. M'ltK enee to Hie current scramble.) "I a series nt o r k i i i R S ot tlie stiecinl r c l c r - h o a v y \veiclit By ALAN GOULD NEW YORK,. (/P)--They're all rying to grab the brass ring on the heavyweight merry-go-round at this writing, with Chicago, Berlin and New York rating contending positions in that order. One of the few identifiable facts is that the old collar and cuff man, Michael Strauss Jacobs, has the next heavyweight champion of the world In his grasp. Even if the unexpected happens, and--as Madison Square garden's John Heed Kilpatrick insists--Champion Jim Braddock is kept from fighting Joe Louis in Chicago and forced to meet Max Schmeling either in New York or Berlin this summer, Mike Jacobs still ll hold the strings. "Uncle Mike" has Louis and Schmeling both under contract. He has an option on Braddock's services if the champion beats Louis at Chicago. He can't lose. Slust Force .Tim. The garden's one and apparently remote chance of keping any strings at all on the title situation is to force Braddock to go through with the contract to fight Schmeling here on June 3. This the champion has not the slightest intention of doing, regardless of persuasion, pressure or legal gestures. Along Cauliflower alley you can hear talk (A) that all this shadowboxing is preliminary to a "deal" between Jacobs and the Garden, heretofore long-time allies in the ticket business; (B) that each sidr is fearful the other will blow the lid oEf certain fistic practices, past or present, and (C) that the Garden seriously is considering "washing its hands" of the entire box fighting business in disgust or disillusionment. Both Will Stay. All direct evidence, however, indicates both the Garden and the Twentieth Century Sporting club which is another name for Mike Jacobs, Inc., intend to remain in the fistic field. They probably prefer to be friendly rivals, for a number of sound business reasons. But il necessary, both are prepared for a finish fight. The Garden has survived intermittent splurges ot opposition. The current Garden matchmaker, Jimmy Johnston, once \vns so annoying as a rival promoter that he was finally taken into the fold. Jacobs, for 15 years, was closely associated with Tex Rickard. About a year ago, Jacobs turned down the second of two proopsi- tions to pool his fistic interests with the Garden's. It was understood that one stipulation, which Jacobs rejected, was thai Johnston must remain as matchmaker. II is no secret that a chronic feud exists between these two operatives. Earl Averill to Stay Out of Indian Roster CLEVELAND, (UP)--Earl Averill, Cleveland Indian center fielder, remained a hold-out Friday after failing to come to terms in a conference with C. C. Slapnicka, general manager of the Indians. Averill is understood to be asking 517,500 for his services. Two other Indians are holding out for more money, Johnny Allen, pitcher, and Billy Sullivan, catcher.

Iowa Falls just couldn't produce enough points to stop the winners, although Dale Sehultz got nine counters at center for the Cadets. Two teams from the far southern edge of the North Iowa area, LaMoille and Owasa, advanced in Cltiss B here Thursday night, at the expense of two outfits from farther upstate. Owasa high school defeated Hansell, smothering the Franklin county team under a 47 to 2(5 barrage, staying far out in front all the way, and still going ttrong at the finish.

Conn's boxing ability was too much for Risko's roundhouse punches and the former champion failed to land a single solid blow to Conn's face. The left side ot Hisko's face was bruised and he suffered a deep cut above the right eye. Paul Waner to Step Out of Major Loop? SARASOTA, Fla., (UP)--Unless the Pittsburgh Pirates meet his demand for $500 additional salary, Paul Waner, last year's National league batting champ, said Friday, he will retire from baseball this year. Waner is working out daily w i t h the Boston Red Sox here, but will not report to the Pirate camp unless the management meets his demand. OUT of the PRESSBOX -By Al Mitchell- MOHAWKS VVIiV UNDER LITTLE-USED RULE It's been a long, long time since I've heard of the "first basket' rule being used to decide a basketball game . . . Thursday night you know, Mason City defeated Buffalo Center high school in the district tournament at Webster City . . .' when Jack Wallace whipped ' through a field goal to earn period. ipped to 18 margin in a second overtime Iowa tournament rules provide that a tied game shall be decided m the second overtime period if cither team makes a basket . . . 01 two points. The team scoring two points f i r s t wins the game. The rule works just the same as the baseball provision for a {ast-of-lhe-nmth victory . . . on the diamond, you know, a game ends m the last half of any inning including and after the ninth . . if a run is driven across for the home team. In the national semipro baseball tournament code, there's another similar rule . . . a team getting a 12-run lead at any point in the contest automatically ends the gome and is the winner . * * * . * * C If Mason City had failed to score its basket , . . and Buffalo Center had still held its 18 to 17, scored on Carlyle Kopp's free throw as the second extra period got under way . . . the Bison would have won, of course. And ... if Mason City had tied the score with a free throw instead of winning the game with a basket . . . the third overtime period would have been a full three minute affair, with no special rules in force. * * * $ * * Shucks . . . those Mohawks are just doin' things all right . they must like to win 'em close . . . the good teams win the close ones, you know.
