MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 22 mm 1936 ._ - , N 1 NJ! ; MASON CITY HIGH WINS OPENER BY 7 TO 1 Out of the Pressbox By Al Mitchell Keeping It Straight T WONDER if North Iowa base- 1 ball and Softball fans aren't getting a bit mixed up on the summer program of diamond events? There are so many items on schedule that my best advice would be to paste these dates and facts in your hat: In the first place, local fans can have their baseball right now . . . by attending the high school and junior college games listed for Roosevelt stadium. Two more games are on the ticket for this week, with Swea City and Austin, Minn., high schools appearing with the Mohawks on Friday and Saturday. * # * The Cerro Gordo county high school tournament will be held at Mason City May 1 and 2 . . .Mason City has won the last two county meets . . . Rockwell was the winner in 1932 and 1933. Should Mason City win this year's county title, there's been a whisper to the effect that a district tournament might he held here . . . and it would be welcome. The high schools will go to Manson to finish the state championship race this year . . . the week-end of May 23 is the appointed date. * * * Although it hasn't been planned, I'd like to see a state junior college baseball tournament . . . preferably held at Mason City . . . . even a North Iowa invitational tournament for the jaysecs would be something. Do 1 hear a proposition ? * * * Coming along this week is the Globe-Gazette's baseball school, which will be conducted with the cooperation of the Y. M. C. A., the high school and the American Legion . . . and will serve as "training camp" for the youngsters who are going to be interested in American Legion Junior baseball this summer. The Junior season will start in June, of course . . . immediately after the school year closes. * * * For Softball fans . . . eligibility lists for Mason City league teams will be due May 15 ... the season opens June 1 and the games will be played at East park just as always. Look for bunch of new outfits, though . . . a lot of the old standbys will be among the missing when the umpire calls "Play Ball!" on the hilltop diamond.

The wiruier here (Continued on pace 10) The ol' victory habit, built last year when Mason City high 'school's baseball team went undefeated in 17 games and won the Iowa prep championship, is sticking with the new edition of Mohawks. The high school squad braved frigid blasts Tuesday afternoon to open the season, and came up with a neat 1 to 1 victory over Webster City's Lynx. Everett Fletcher, who was a hot- weather star last summer with the American Legion Junior team, looked just as effective in the biting breeze at Roosevelt stadium. He allowed the Lynx three hits, two of them solid raps, the other a stinging drive that nearly took Jack Wallace's feet from under him at first base, and bounced away into right field. Score in Fifth. The Lynx combined two of the blows in the fifth inning to score their only run. Mason City was already far out in front, with 5 counters marked up in the first two innings, and the Mohawks earned their final margin in the sixth after Fletcher lined a triple to center field and Johnny Thompson walked. Fletcher took care of Meyel '.'Bud" Haack's bounce to start the game, and set Warren Maxon and Ralph Burton down on strikes-the first pair in a string of 11-to close the Lynx' turn at bat. The Mason City half brought immediate action as Johnny Thompson rapped Don Shelton's second pitch over second base. While Jack Wallace was · whiffing. Thompson went down to second. Mulcahy Drives One. Ed Hert lofted a high one into left field, and the ball got away from Maxon as the wind caught it to fall for a two-base hit and score Thompson. Then came Jim Mulcahy's part of the show. With a pair of strikes on him, the husky Irish flychaser pulled a drive into the breeze and sailed it far over the right field wall. The Mason City scoring ended as Mickey Cookman was tossed out by Shelton and Jake Accurso was thrown out by Laverne I Whitson from third base. Bob Cookman was left on second after he had reached the No. 1 sack on Ralph -Frank's juggle and stole the next base. Shelton Cracks Fence. Sheltbn nearly duplicated Mulcahy's blow when he cracked one high and far for two bases. The ball struck the top of the right field fence but bounded back into the stadium, and the Lynx' pitcher was BE-GAZETTE RTS Globe-Gazette Baseball School Opens Friday Uncle Sam to Muster Full Quota for Eleventh Olympic Games This Season * More Than 350 Sport Champion at Relays Again Baseball Standings NATIONAL LEAGUE W.

A single scratch hit combined with three walks, an error and a pair of infield outs to score another pair of Mason City runs in the second. Harris Dillabough walked to start the inning, and Fletcher rapped one down to Burton at second. Burton made the stop, juggled the ball when he tried to tag Dillabough, and threw late to first base Two Runs Unearned. . Thompson's roller'was played to third base to catch Dillabough, but Jack Wallace dumped a slow roller down the third baseline and it went for a hit as Shelton was left alone to field the ball. Fletcher was forced at the plate on Ed Hert's bounce to Sbelton, and the Mohawk runs were unearned as Mulcahy and Mickey Cookman walked with the bases full. Bob Cookman was thrown out by Shelton to close the frame. The main action in the third centered around Jake Accurso. who made the toughest step of the game to throw out Burton, then came to mat and crashed a window out of a house across South Pennsylvania avenue with a sharp foul. Mickey Cookman was charged with a bobble as he dropped Haack's fly after a hard try, but nothing came of it. Fletcher Stops Hally. Thompson was the only batter to see first in the fourth inning, arriving there on an error as Olson failed to hag the sack, but he stuck at second after stealing the base. The Mohawk catcher engineered three thefts during the game. The fifth saw Webster City score its lone rim. Whitson coupling after he had walked.

(.T)--All "bear- stories to the contrary notwithstanding, your Uncle Samuel is going to muster a full quota of athletic boys and girls for the eleventh Olympiad in Berlin this summer. The fund-raising has met with difficulties in certain localities but the powers-that-be in the American Olympic committee now have sufficient assurances, plus prospects, to guarantee that at least 350 athletes will bear the traditional shield m competition abroad. The maximum, figured on originally, is 411, but this is subject to some "pruning" in events Where the United States does not have a chance of scoring. It may yet be possible, however, to "go the limit." Sports Pay Own Way. Financing plans now call for each sport to handle the cost of sending its own representation to Berlin. Thus, while the basketball tryouts fell far short of expectations and failed to contribute much, if anything, to the general Olympic funda, enough was obtained to pay the expenses of the basketball squad to Berlin and back. It is hoped the general fund will fare a bit better from the gate receipts of the final boxing tryouts, to be held in Chicago, The "pe"r" capita" cost of sending the American team to Germany has been sharply reduced, according to the latest information. Originally it was figured at least $750 would be required to pay all expenses, for an athlete. Now it is estimated $500 will cover each individual's board, lodging and transportation, without any comforts of home being missed or meals skipped. Board Allows Mnrgin, Thus, while the Olympic committee still is aiming at $300,000, to cover all expenses, including some bills left over for the winter sports, it can fall short of that goal without the necessity of trimming the team personnel. Track and field, which will have the biggest squad, counts upon the receipts from final tryouts to put them safely on the boat leaving New York April 15, with enough money to pay the bills. At least $30,000 is expected from this source. These tryouts probably will go to Palmer stadium, Princeton, July 1011, despite prior announcement that they will be conducted at the new Randall's island stadium here. Positive assurances have been given that the Randall's Island project will be completed and the Tri- borough bridge opened, not later than July 9, but Olympic officials feel it will be safer--and more productive of the needed revenue--to plan on using the Princeton field. Final selection of the site will be delayed until late in June. Princeton Logical Site. At Princeton, the final trials would draw from a wider territory, besides being free from any threat of a boycott by New York elements opposed to America's participation in the Olympics, on anti-nazi grounds. This factor is uppermost in the minds of Olympic leaders, based upon a falling off in receipts at the Olympic basketball trials here. "All things considered," said one Olympic leader, "our finances now are in better shape and the prospects are brighter than any at the corresponding state of our campaign in 1932. Although the last Olympics were held in this country, there was real difficulty raising CLIFF HATHAWAY TO TEACH CLASS FOR FIRST NIGHT No Age Limit, No Tickets to Get In; Boys Will Join Legion's Squad. Mason City's young ballplayers get into action Friday night and Saturday of this week--the first sessions of the Globe-Gazette baseball school are all set. Friday night at the Y. M. C. A. banquet room will see the firs! class meeting, · beginning at 7 o'clock, while Saturday morning has been reserved for actual practice, out-of-doors. There aren't many rules or regulations to worry about. There is no age limit for the fellows who want to come, although the classes and practice sessions are going to be directed mostly for younger boys, in junior high school and the first years of high school. There are no tickets to buy. The entire school will be put on, from this week until the end of May, without any cost to the boys who enter. Here are the few things that should he remembered: 1--Friday night's classwork will be on playing the outfield, with plenty of tips on catching, batting, throwing, and how to develop speed and strength. 2--A fellow who knows how to do all these things is going to teach Friday night's class. Cliff Hathaway, who will join the Beatrice, Nebr., baseball team next week, as an outfielder, and is the property of the St. Louis Browns, will be the instructor. 2--Be there at 7 o'clock Friday night, in time to register as a regular member of the Globe-Gazette baseball school. Classwork will start at 7:30. 4--The school is being conducted with the co-operation of the American Legion, and boys who complete the scries of baseball lessons planned from now until the last of May will go directly to the American Legion Junior baseball squad when it starts its summer practice in June. 5--Watch the Globe-Gazette sports page for a bunch of tips on playing the outfield--written by Ethan Allen of the Philadelphia Phillies.

JIM GUESSES ON HANK'S CLUBBING, LOSES TO GIANTS Wilson Passes Ott to Take Out Lieber, Giants Win on Henry's Blow. By AND!" CLARKE Associated Press Sports Writer Hank Lcibcr, cleanup man of the Giants, chuckled Wednesday in the satisfaction that Jimmy Wilson, pilot of the Phils paid for his lack of respect. Hank was the central figure in a Polo Grounds drama that featured a day on which cold, rain and darkness conspired to cause postponement of four major league games and halt two others before completion; a day on which Bob (Lefty) Grove hung up his second win of the season and weird baseball came again to the park of the Brooklyn Dodgers. "Wait for Lcibcr." It was the ninth inning. The score was tied and the winning run was on second base. Curt Davis was on the mound for the Phils and Mel Ott wa,s advancing to the plale for the Giants when Wilson, yelling "wait a minute," ran out to the pitcher's box for a conference. He glanced at Ott and then at Lciber. the latter swinging a couple bats in the background. Then he made his decision. "Pass Ott and pitch to Lciber." Leiber began to swing those bats viciously as Davis intentionally passed Ott and the import of the insult deepened. Hank stepped to the plate. The first ball was a little low but he leaned on the second for a clean single to centerfield. Blow Wins Game. Jimmy Ripple scrampercd around third to home and Hank, crossing first base, looked to the Phils dug-out to see Wilson disappearing into its depths. It was complete vindication. The final score was 7 to 6. Grove held the Washington Senators to three scattered hits for his second win of the season as the Red Sox defeated the Nats 8 to 1 in a game that was halted in the seventh inning. The rangy southpaw deserved a shutout, Washington's second inning run being the result of Eric McNair's error on Jake Powell's grounder. The game was called on account of darkness and rain. Double Ends Rally. The Brooklyn Dodgers - Boston Bees game was called in the twelfth inning because of darkness with the score tied at 6-6. Dick Siebert was the man who failed for the Dodgers. With the bases loaded in the last half of the twelfth, Siebert stepped to the plate and hit into a double play. The Athletics, showing surprising power in their last two starts, gave the Yankees plenty of trouble before going down 7 to 6. Three Yankee pitchers saw duty. Johnny Broaca was chased after bringing his team into the ninth with a five run lead. Johnny Murphy and Pat Malone also saw duty before Malone made Pinky Higg-ins foul out and Warstler ground out to Crosetti with the tying run on third. Bill Dickey belted his third homer of the season with two on in the third. enough money to finance a full entry list. We have gained wider support this year. We are getting contributions from many sources heretofore lacking in Olympic interest. The reaction to the boycott movement of last year has been distinctly reassuring."
