-' -- ; -.=^I.- ! ^55^c.-a»--TSsi3 iBuck starbeck, football coach at Iowa State Teachers college informs us that for the first time in 2 years, the Tigers will definitely field a football team next fall "We have a good start on some material, and I think you can be · pretty safe in saying that we'll be out there battling when the grid season rolls around,". Buck told us over a cup of coffee the othei day. The conversation n a t u r a l l y turned to football, and some of the boys who competed with the Tutors through the years. "Yoi know, it's a'funny thing," he said "but we seem to draw quite a few boys from New York' City who are good athletes. And of all the men we've had, all but 2 have stuck it out for the full 4 years. "Well, Iowa .State Teachers must have made quite a name for itself in the east," we commented Buck laughed and said "you know there's a funny' little story connected with that. I get a kick out of it every time I think of it "Representatives" 1 "A few years ago I received some letters from boys in New York City, telling me that my representative had called on them and that they were interested in playing football at Iowa State Teachers. Well, the funny part . about it is that I don't have a "representative". in New York and never have had. Anyway, the boys came out and played a lol of football." "Do you have any way of ex plaininjf it?" we asked. "Here's what I think happened," Buck said. "Some years back a boy from Brooklyn named Pastorino playec fullback for me at Iowa. State Teachers, and he made quite a name for himself. When he graduated. I received several letters from his dad. who was' quite interested in our grid prospects. I suspect he was our "representative." although it was quite'un- official. . "The strange part about it," says Buck, "j s that they're still coming out. In fact, I may even have same for my 1944 club" ', * · ' - . ' About 6 Games A definite schedule has not yet been arranged for the Tigers but Buck:thinHs:jt may .consist ' of - about;; 6 games,; possibly on' a kom'erandihorne ·series-b'asis;-Ten- tatively, -games are in' prospect with .Drake and Wichita, and probably another Missouri Valley conference" member. "I'm not going to lake ou an overloaded schedule if I can help it," Buck', commented," "because we won't know jnst what material we It have when fall rolls around, and a Saturday or two of rest might come in real handy. At any rate, you can count on us for some football competition. Natnr ally, we can't guarantee the ?rade of play just now. but we'll do the best we have with wh*t we have. !* most schools are doing Tiqers Too ' The Detroit Tigers, though their home park is I of 3 in the American leacue without lights, walked oft with American loop ni»ht ?o?] S W0n and ' Iost Iaure ls in 1944. with Steve O'Neill's crew winning 15 out of 21 games played under the arcs for a lusty .714 percentage.

Pep, who served » nine months hitch in the navy, is the first big- name athlete called' by his draft board for re-examination since the recent announcement of the selective service plans to force non- essentlally employed 4-Fs into war work.

GIVEN EDGE OVER '26 CLUB Williams Compares Teams; Keariis Agrees By JERRY USKA Chicago, (ff"i--Iowa's undefeated Hawkeyes are as good--if not better--than the last Big Ten title- winner from the state where the tall corn grows, says Rollie Williams. Silver-thatched Williams, . ~ -- . -- -..-.v..^»* v r miaui:,, new athletic officer at Great Lakes and former Iowa cage coach, isn't flatly predicting the first Hawkeye championship since 1926, and that only a title share, hut he thinks they'll cop "if they get the breaks along the way." "They're good," he asserted at a meeting of Chicago basketball writers, "just as good as any team Iowa has ever had. "I'd say that perhaps they are even better than that 1926 team " he said, ''but Pops-(Coachj Law-, rence Harrison of the current Iowa team) probably could tell better. He played on that outfit along with such stars as Van Deusen, Hogan, Willcox and Miller." Williams, who was assistant to Coach Sam Barry at that time pointed out that the 1926 Hawk- eyes lost 4 in a row before hitting the stride that gave them a share of the title with Michigan Indiana and Purdue. The Hawks finished with an 8-4 record. The .1945. Hawkeyes won'.their first 2 conference games for their lih and 8th victories of the season Big Ten official Nick Kearns backs Williams with the assertion that the Hawkeyes are perfectly balanced and capable of hitting the hoop from anywhere on the floor. "Most winning teams have only one heavy scorer," d e c l a r e d Kearns, vfho officiated as Iowa trimmed Purdue 61-34 last Saturday, "and when he's stopped their whole attack bogs down. But Iowa has scoring punch throughout its line-up. When Ives doesn't hit, one of the Wilkinson brothers does."

Schultz, Mikon Will Match Skills Saturday in Contest Between Hamline, DePaul - By WALTER BVERS Chicago, (U.E--The top show of the infant 1944-45 basketball season, will be staged here Saturday when 2 of the country's most brilliant centers, H a m 11 n e ' s Howie Schultz and DePaul's George Mikan, meet in a stratospheric duel for national honors. Hamline and DePaul have compiled 2 of the best records in the country this year, made possible only by the blazing paces of Schultz and Mikan. The little St. PauJ school has won 11 out of 12 fames, while DePaul has won 10 out of 11. Mikan, 8-foot, 9-inches, playing rus 3rd varsity season, is the nation's No. 1 scorer to date this season with 239 points and he needs only 4 more to' reach the 1,000 mark for his entire collegiate career, which is comparable to a baseball player hitting .400 in the maior leagues. Standing in his way Saturday will be 6-foot, 7-inch Schultz Schultz, better known as a Brooklyn Dodger and a "sore spot" for the national A. A. U has scored 177 points this campaign and Hamline Coach Joe Tutton rales the Dodger first sacker "one of the greatest centers I've seen exceptionally well co-ordinated for a big man." Mikan, extremely agile for -his proportions, is an exceptional re- bounder, making most of his points close in and using pivot ihots sparingly. Schultz is a good Pivot shot, although lacking the rebound technique of Mikan. Although the leading prooellant m Kamlme's victory drive, Schultz has gamed more basketball fame from the eligibility battle which has been raging over his head The national A. A. U. has ostracized the St. Paul school for allowing: Schnlti and teammate Rol- lle SelU, both professional athletes, to compete. Sell?. Is a member of the Rochester, N. T baseball team of the International league. According to A. A. U. rules,the 2 baseball stars will "profes- sionaliie" all amateur athletes who play against them. DePaul. however, joined other schools in overlooking the A A U. s protests and Col. Tom Haggerty, DePaul athletic director, said he was "unconcerned about the matter." The National Collegiate Athletic association, of which DePaul is a member, has no rule prohibiting the game and DePaul will be eligible to compete in N. C A A tournaments.
