The Buckeyes, who completed their schedule with a record of 10 victories and 2 defeats, must sit light while Iowa plays Northwestern twice at Iowa Cily. One defeat can knock Iowa out of the race and leave the brilliant Ohio team as sole successors to the Illinois "Whiz Kids" as conference champion.

Mason City's basketball team opened a successful defense of its 1943 state cage title here Wednesday night by completely overpowering a hapless St. Ansgar quintet, 82-12. The game was altogether one- sided from the opening whistle and the Saints never had a chance. Coach Bud Suter lifted his starting lineup at the end of the first quarter, and the reserves played the entire second period, 3 minutes of the third stanza and the whole fourth quarter. St. Ansgar's shooting consistently fell far v.'ide of the basket, anc it was not until 2 minutes had gone By in the third quarter t h a t ' the losers tallied on their first fitkl goal. By the lime the first quarter had ended, Mason City held a tremendous 35-2 lead, and the reserves increased tha_t during the second session until the score stood at 55-3 at the intermission. The opening lineup went in at the start of the third quarter, and by the time the Saints had netted their first fielder the Mohawks had poured in 8 more markers to bring the count to 63-5. The second team took over with 3 minutes remaining in the third stanza and hiked the lead to 71-5 by the time the third period had ended. The Saints hit for lield goals 3 times during the final period and plus a free throw brought their final count to 12. The Cardinal and Black reserves, in the 'meanwhile, netted 11 points to give the Mohawks their final tally of 82. The Sutermcii will not see action again until Saturday night, when they run into Northwood, 45-30 victor over Clear Lake Wednesday night, in the finals of the class A bracket.

The former Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop, sold Wednesday to the Philadelphia Nationals for an undisclosed sum, was discussing his last year's tendency to desert the Buccaneers and go home to Buffalo, which led finally to his suspension from organized baseball. ·'I know they call me 'Homesick Huck'," he asserted Wednesday night, "but that was just something the writers thought up." "I was sick," he insists, explaining he went home once because of stomach trouble, and again because of an injured knee. Geary was reinstated last mo_nth by Baseball Czar Kenesaw M Landis. Informed of the deal trading him to the Phillies, he declared "I'll be glad to play with anybody if the draft _board will lei me." ' · send the Mohawks into districi competition.

The Johawks were to hit Manly in the second round of class B play Thursday night. Father A. D. Gibbs threw his entire sciuad into the battle in order to hold the count down, but :hc reserves went right on where the regulars left off. Every man on the Blue and ' White squad scored at least 2 points, with Tcnney leading the parade with 10 markers. Cast and R. Harmon scored 6 each for Plymouth, and Nelson's 4 gave the losers their total of 16. The Johawks j u m p e d ahead at the outset of the contest, and by the time the intermission rolled around, the Blue and White commanded a 33-5 margin, far more than enough to enable the squad to coast in to the triumph. Rebound work, shooting and plays ali worked to perfection Wednesday night as the Johawks dominated play throughout.

''4 By ROGER HOSENBLUM Globe-Gazette Sports Editor Swaledale -- Just to talk to walcdale's unassuming bunch of asketball girls, you'd never t h i n k lat they've been Cerro Gordo ounty champions for 2 years, sec- onal lourntimcnt winners twice a row r , victor in this year's dis- ·ict tournament, competitor in the tatc finals in DCS Moincs and ·iumphant in 39 of Ihe lasl 40 ontests. That's a big order to take all at nee. hut after you've seen ''what light be termed the female edi- ion of the Whiz Kids in action, on can understand the reason for he lone list of achievements. Coacli Arthur Carpenter has moulded a well-balanced group of 2 girls into a potent, high-scoring nachine that has averaged 48.3 oints a game d u r i n g the last 2 easons, meanwhile holding op- jonents to a meager average of 20 markers a contest. That scoring has been taken jare of mostly by the 3 regular 'orwards, Martha Jindrich, Betty Finnegan and Mary Swcnson. Carpenter realizes the difficulty of the task ahead, and says "if they play up to their capabilities, my girls will Kivc any opponent a good lattlc. Naturally, we hope to win he title, but we're up against omc mighty tough teams now. especially Ilolstcin in the first round next Wednesday. "Basketball is a f u n n y sport," :ie continued, "and you can never .ell what's going to happen. You can bet your l i f e we'll be in there pitching all the way, and don't sell us short." According lo the records, Swalc- ciale will be the first Cerro Gordo county girls team ever to reach the state finals, and the first team, boys or girls, to reach the f i n a l round from Swalcdale. During the 1941-42 season the boys club went to the semifinals of the sub-slate tourney before losing out. Last year, the Swaledale lassies advanced to the final round of the district tournament at Steamboat Rock, and dropped a decision lo Wellsburg. This year's squad features a sister act in addition to its other attributes, with Martha. Pat and Betty Jindrich all contributing to the team's fine record. The girls not only spend their time getting in condition on the basketball court, but during the hemp season the squad members pitched in and helped w i t h the harvest. Condition plus ability arc 2 big contributing factors toward a winning team, but something else that must be present--a love for the game--makes itself evident with this Swaledale aggregation, and may prove the margin between victory and defeat when the going gets rough in the finals at DCS JMoines next Wednesday.

Northwestern, prc-seasou favorite, will be at its lowest strength of the season against the Hawk- eyes, after losing Otto Graham, Johnny Ward and Jerry Carle, regulars, and Nick Vodick, top reserve. Loss of these men leaves Northwestern with only 4 players who have seen any extensive action --- Ben S c h a d 1 e r, leading scorer.

Coach Popsy Harrison warned his charges: "Northwestern is very dangerous, despite personnel losses which took 4 players who ranked from 2nd lo 5th in scoring. Coach · Dutch LnnlinrH is smart at shift- ' ins his players and some of those Icsser-knowii men may fill in sur- prisintrly well." i In their last few contests shooting has been unsteady. The boys have had plenty of shols, includ- I "ng numerous close-in ones, but j many were hurried and the ball i simply would not settle into the i basket. This was 1 especially true at Ohio State.
