Marshalltown, jumped all the way , y from third team forward to iirst team forward while Leo Cornwell advanced from third team forward to the same spot on the second team. No Tournament Stress Evidence of. the fact that no special premium is placed on tournament play is found in 10 players who were chosen on the three teams, despite the defeats of their quintets early in state eliminations. These players include Hirt and Cornwell, John Hutchison, Keokuk's first team guard; Richard Van Citters, Sibley's first team I center; Melvln Wagner, Fort ; Madison and Myron. Thomas, 7 Geneseo, second team forwards; - Dave Spencer, Davenport, second team euard; Harlc Damon, .Thomas Jefferson, C o u n c i l Bluffs, and Dick Jensen, Davenport, third team, forwards, and R i c h a r d Kidd, IWuscafine's sophomore third team guard. A stronger first team combination could hardly be asked. Averaging 17y 2 years in age and 169« pounds in weight, the team as a whole is slightly below six feet in height -- one-half inch to be exact. Every man is a "dead-eye Dick" and can shoot from every angle. In addition all are above par defensively. Better yet, each o£ the first all-staters is truly a team player. Three "Money" Players In Mas Ives of Diagonal, Hirt and Trickey, the forward line has three "money" players with speed, footwork and intelligence to know what to do when facing puzzling defenses. The same can be said for Thynne and- Van Citters, both of whom are 6 feet, 4 inches tall. In addition, each uses his height to good advantage whether under his own or his opponents' basket. Cool deliberation and ability to direct play from the back court is combined in the three guards, Bill Slauss of Creslon, Maurice Cooper and Hutchison. Each is a clever passer and can be counted upon for much-needed points in the pinches. sketches of ca.^h first team player.

If there's anything left to be written about this boy we are unaware of what it could be. The most publicized player m the state, Thynne is a "coaches dream" but first of all he is a team player. (And it's reported that he's headed for Notre Dame--Note to Iowa college and university coaches). He could hit from any angle and was death on close shots except when they wouldn't drop against Mason City m the upset tournament game. He had what college coaches tabbed a "split vision"--ability to dribble down the floor, draw guards away from a teammate, then suddenly pass to a teammate the the guards didn't even think Jim saw. A marked player, he averaged 15 points a game even though many teams sent two men to guard him. A splendid defensive player, he uses his height to good advantage under either basket. He played with Melrose's state champions in 1937 and in the last three years liis teams have lost only four games, both at Sac City and Melrose. Coach Martin C. Brandes pays him this high tribute: "With all the glory and publicity he has received he is still Jimmy Thynne . . . still wears a size seven hat." Center -- Richard Van Citters, Sibley senior, 18; weight, 180 pounds; height, 6 feet, 4 inches. Another beanpole who knew the game inside put. He scored 299 points during the season and added an even 100 more during five tournaments in which his team participated. During all this time he was also holding his opponents to a total of only 99 points. Led his quintet into the district finals, where Thynne and the Sac City Indians were too much to handle.

PAUL, Minn., (U.PJ--Thief River Falls, defending titlist in the 26th Annual Minnesota High School Basketball tournament, was dethroned in an opening round of play Thursday night, which saw Minneapolis Marshall and South St. Paul emerge as the most likely quintets to win the crown. A battling; Thief River Falls team fell before an impressive South St. Paul five, 33 to 26, while Minneapolis Marshall put another tourney favorite, Gilbert, out of the running with a 34-25 triumph. Honors for winning the closest contest of the day, however, went to Mountain Lake, smallest town represented in the tournament, which barely edged out a fighting Austin team iti an exciting 29 to 28 battle.

Thief River Falls, however, didn t relinquish Its grip on t], e state crown without a battle The Prowlers, althoueh set on (heir heels at the outset by the speedy South St. Paul outfit came back strong in the Utter part of the game and forced the packers to their utmost. South St. Paul's aggressiveness sure-fire attack and stubborn defense made it r. slight favorite to bowl over Mountain Lake. Minneapolis Marshall showed UselE to be a high-powered quintet when it eliminated Gilbert another pre-tournament favorite, ihe Iron Range team led the Min- neapolitans only during the first few minutes of the game, after which the Cardinals, led by Ciesla and Mattson, forged safely ahead to score an impressive victory Twin City Ace Gone The Marshall quintet may find the triumph a costly one since one of their ace scorers, Syl Ciesla, suffered a sprained ankle that was expected to keep him out of the remainder of the tournament Breckenridge used its range and ruggedness to defeat a. smaller but none the less scrappy Hutchinson five. Brecken- ndge took an early lead in Ihe game, but dropped behind a couple of times, before putting on a final spurt that sent them into the semifinals.
