"Figures for 1938," the commission said, "are only about half the number for 1937, due to adverse conditions experienced at the pike-perch hatcheries at Spirit Lake and at Clear Lake. About 40 million pike-perch were hatched at these two hatcheries during the last year, and of this number, more than 30 million were stocked in waters of the state as fry. ·* * o "Of the total number of fish stocked, move than a million were adults, 164,000 . \vere yearlings, 2,303,000 were fingerlings and more than 40 million were released as fry." ; Slore than 6,000,000 Jish were salvaged from land-locked pools adjacent streams in 1D38 . . . the rescued fish ivere stocked in more suitable -waters over the state. The rescue work was conducted by members of the fisheries department, state conservation officers, organized sportsmen's group? and interested fishermen.

Old-Fashioned Feuds Mark Windup Events of Board Schedules By STEVE SNIDER United Press Staff Correspondent CHICAGO, (U.PJ---Touring track stars of tlie winter circuit arrivec Friday for the final indoor carnival of the season, bearing more feuds than there are in the Kentucky hills. Nearly every event in Saturday night's Chicago Relays includes some world champion who has been beaten or tied by- other members of the starting field. The number one veteran out for revenge is Glenn Cunningham, the flying Kansan, who needs only one more victory in Chicago's Bankers' mile to gain permanent possession of the old trophy, lenn, running a fever when he stepped onto the track, lost to both Chuck Fenske and Gene Venzke m the K. of C. games in New York. Other feudists: 1. Don Lash, the Indiana state JOliceman who holds a world two- mile mark of 8:58, came home second to Notre Dame's plucky Greg Rice in the Millrose Games. Coach John Nicholson of Notre Dame picks Rice to do it again Saturday. 2. Jimmy Herbert, Negro 600- yard champion, tied his own world mark of l.ll.l oo the boards here last year but so far Harold Cagle of Oklahoma Baptist, Fordham's Wesley Wallace and Charley Beetham, former Ohio State star, have been winning most of the eastern titles. 3. Herbert Thompson, another Negro star, rolled up 20 straight sprint victories until Perrin Walker caught up with him in the K. of C. games. Walker expects to do it again. 4. Allen Tolmich, former Wayne university star, set one hurdle record and tied another in the 1933 Chicago Relays and continued almost unchallenged until defeated by Larry O'Connor of Toronto. O'Conner and Elmer Gedeon, Michigan's Big Ten hurdle champion, will lace Tolmich again Saturday. None of the feudists, however, appeared likely to set new world records. The only probable new American indoor marks--generally, but not officially recognized as world records--were in the pole 'ault and 1,000 yards. Earl Meadows, Olympic vaulting champion from Southern California and twice victor in the Chicago games, has promised himself an indoor record to pair with his share of the unofficial outdoor mark of 14 feet, 11 inches. The listed indoor record is 14 feet, 4}g inches set by George Varoff of Oregon, but Meadows will have to better another mark of 14 feet, 6V 2 inches made by Cornelius \Varmerdam if he expects a world record. In the 1,000 yards, Johnny Borican, New York's Negro art student who became an indoor sensation at the middle distances this winter, will shoot for a mark as good or better than the 2:08 he turned in at New York. This 2:08 bettered Cunningham's official record of 2:10.1, but it may not be allowed Leaders Get Monopoly in Iowa Loop Swing's the Thing--for Early Birds GLOBE.GAZETTE Si since the starter jumped the gun. said Borican IOWA HOOPERS IN SEMIFINAL Des Moines A.

New York Amerks Dropped Out of Stanley Playoffs Toronto Wins, Gets Place m Semifinals of Hockey Contests NEW YORK, U.R--The Stanley cup Hockey field was narrowed to five contenders Friday with elimination of the New York Americans. Toronto's second straight victory over the Americans Thursday night sent the Maple Leafs anto the playoff semifinals where they will meet the winner of the Detroit-Montreal series which was squared at one-all when Detroit won Thursday. Boston's Bruins, who set five records in winning; the National ' league hockey title, put a strangle hold on a finals berth when they handed the New York Rangers their second straight defeat, 3 to 2. The Rangers would have to win four out of the final five games to survive. The Hangers, playing with a substitute goalie in place oE Davie Kerr who was injured in the first playoff game, extended the Bruins to overtime for the second straight time Thursday night. A capacity crowd of 16,702 in Boston Garden saw Rookie Mel Hill send a lightning thrust from 40 feet out that ended the first "sudden death" overtime period at 8:24. It was Hills score that broke the deadlock in the third overtime. Toronto blanked the Americans 2 to 0 for their second straight shutout. Detroit kept its hopes alive with a four-goal rally in the last period that beat Montreal 7 to 3.

All meetings will be held in Great Hall o£ Iowa State's Memorial Union. A full schedule of talks, discussions and athletic movies will continue from 9 a m uutil 5 p. m . ' '' Baseball has enjoyed a phenomenal growth in Iowa high schools within the past feiv years. No less than 664 of the 898 schools in the Iowa High School Athletic association sponsor baseball teams. The increasing baseball enthusiasm has been matched by the tremendous development of six-man, the game that is bringing football to the smaller communities of Iowa. Heading the baseball side of the program is Lew Fonseca, promotional manager for the American league. A former big league player and manager, he is one of the most colorful figures in base- pall. Other speakers on baseball include Supt. H. C. DeKock o£ Manson, director of the state high school diamond tournament; Clayton (Chick) Sutherland, coach of Mason City's state prep champions; Dutch Levsen of Springville, former Clex'eland Indian pitcher, and Sec Taylor, veteran Des Moines baseball writer.

The club with the best elbow surgeon nearly always wins the pennant. So -when I say that Hubbell and Schumacher gat a couple of mighty fine jobs done on them it's not hearsay. In some respects, Hubbell's operation was the most spectacular of them all. At least, his surgeon made much the longest incision I've seen--fully eight inches--and removed a hat-full of spurs, whereas some of the convalescents who talked loudest of their experiences on the table didn't boast more than one or two spurs to begin with. As befits one of baseball's truly great pitchers, Hubbell was modest about the epic proportions of his operation as he, Schuinacher and I sat and swapped our experiences under the knife. Hub Not Too Sure Each of them just had given his healing flipper a three-inning trial against the Philadelphia Athletics, and Carl was not too sure how it had gone. "Sly operation was different from Hal's," said Hubbell. "He opened my elbow up down the outside, as you can see, and then scraped clear around to the sides of my arm, setting- out those pieces of bone that caused me that terrific pain last season. "Now Hal's operation was more like Johnny Allen's, from what I v e heard of Allen's. It was on the inside, see , and didn't require but about a two-inch incision " I finally had to ask both of them if they thought their operations had cured their salary arms. This is fairly important in a baseball way, because if Hub and Hal can come back and pitch like they once did the Giants will be'ii'real- factor in the coining National league race. Otherwise you can forget about them. "Wasn't Bearing- Down" "It's a hard question to answer," said Hubbell. "I felt pretty good out there, but of course I wasn't really bearing down. Yeah, I even threw three or four screwballs, but I wasn't snapping 'em off the way I have to during the season When the batters have caught up with us." "I felt great," said Schumacher. "Not a bit of pain. It was all I could do to keep from culling loose with my fast one." Frankly, it hadn't looked that way. The boys who have watched "Prince" Hal burn them over for the last seven years shook their heads and said they thought he had lost his speed for good. It was a splendid operation, but--.
