B. HOOI WEBSTER CITY--No wonder it started snowing after the radio announcers had aired those hair- raising, nerve-racking, jittery, one point victories by Marshalltown and Mason City Friday night. It was enough to split the snow clouds wide open . . . as well as a lot of tear ducts . . . and apparently, lots of friendships. , * * * Webster Cityans think that all the folks from Marshalltown are lower than whale bones (which lie at the bottom of the ocean) and everybody except Mason City itself has it in for Mason City. The Lord-Help-TJs Mohawk team has won too many district titles to have any friends left among tournament teams and friends. In fact, it's about as safe to stick your head in a powder keg as it is to admit that you're from Mason City. And if you think that the Mohawks can expect any outside support from the rooting section in that final game against the Bobcats . . . you're as much off as the Literary Digest was. * a ft All except Mason Cityans will be blowing their packing out for the Marshalltown boys. And if the final'Mohawk game is as close as the first two were, it'll be enough to excite the most loyal Mason City fan lo the point where he'll start yelling for the wrong team. Marshalltown, unintentionally, showed a little rough stuff in its desperate effort to check the highly touted Don Shelton of '.Webster City . . . and the Bobcats' committed repeated fouls. But since the Lynx couldn't find the basket from the free throw line in 13 attempts, the fouling proved to be good busi- ·iiess on Marshalltown's part. * * * . There is no ONE MAN for the Bobcats to watch on the Mohawk team. The Mason City's team score is pretty well distributed among. Jack:Wallace, Harold-Mcr Kerizy, Howard Gorman, George and Wayne Wood. With no reservations granted for seats Saturday night, it means that all those who want seat better be on hand when the doors open at 6 o'clock . . . But, fair warning, don't let the mob at the doors know you're from Mason City. You'll never get in. * c a George A. Brown, the head man of Iowa high school sports, the man who has been cussed and discussed more than any other man in Iowa high school athletic circles . . . anyway, Mr. Brown is going to be at the tournament . . . and will no doubt be introduced to all spectators between games. BOBCAT CAGERS HOLD LEAD ALL WAY IN TUSSLE Winners Check Shelton to Climb to Final Game of Court Scrap. WEBSTER CITY--When' the llass A finals get under way here, it will be Marshalltown's Bobcats against the Mohawks of Mason City. Otlesonl and LanKiille w i 1 settle the Class B argument. That's the way the bracket shapes up after Friday night's furious semifinals. Marshalllown's Bobcats accomplished their purpose in stopping the scoring spree o£ Webster City's all-stater, Don Shelton, holding the Lynx center to only nine points, whereas the previous evening he had chalked up 25 points against Hampton. Although finishing . only one point ahead of th'e Lynx, 21 to 20, the Marshalltown boys held the lead all the way, being o u t i n front as much as 12 points in the second quarter. Mason City's win over Humboldt, a rangy band of German boys, was also by a thrilling one point margin, 29 to 28.

By DAVE KAUFMAN Globe-Gazette Sports Staff WEBSTER CITY--It's Mason -ity's Mohawks and Marshall- lown's Tigers in the winciup! The two teams will battle for a trip to ihe last session of the Iowa high school tournament, at Drake field- :iouse in Des Moines, following a typical Grimsleymen's victory Friday night. Winning again by a one-point margin, not quite so sensationally as Thursday night, when they nosed out previously unbeaten Buffalo Center in a second overtime period, the Mohawks eliminated a darkhorse Humboldt quintet GORMAN WOOD by 29 to 28 in the semifinals of the sixth district tournament here, playing before close to 2,000 slightly hysterical fans who crowded into every nook and cranny of Washington Central's gymnasium. Mason City, showing continual improvement in its play, was the superior contender, in spite of the tightness of its one-point victory. The Mohawks, flashing a cool, scientific brand of basketball, trailed the Hunmboldt five, just a step behind, for nearly hnlf Ihe game, flashing into the lead just before the intermission when Howard Gorman, Mohawk pivotman, dropped in an overhand pitch from close range. Lead Short-Livefl. Andy Vonderhaar put Humboldt up again as the second half started, with a setup goal--but it was a short-lived lead, the last time that Humboldt saw the lead come its way. Wayne Wood dribbled under the basket to cage a setup from a block play. From there on, Mason City held a five and three-point edge most of the way, its margin threatened only in the final minute as a stubborn losing squad nearly upset the apple cart. As the last minute of play began, Jim Sulick, rangy pivotman, caught a rebound when Forward Roy Brandsgard missed a long shot, and shoved it in to bring Humboldt within a point of the Mohawks. Taking their own sweet time, Mason City held a frantic Humboldt team away from the goal in the closing seconds, although Sulick got the ball long enough to' try a quick shot from near the free throw line, the attempt falling short just as the final buzzer wound up the duel. Gorman Sets Pace. Leading the Mohawks Friday night was Howard Gorman, at center, who scored five free throws and a pair of field goals for a sum of nine points. Wayne Wood, at guard, helped the Mohawk cause with four field goals, and Jack Wallace, hero of the Buffalo Center victory, again was a potent factor, scoring thrice from the court. The entire Mohawk team should have credit for playing the best defensive game of the tournament. A leech-like defense forced Humboldt into hurried shots and was the largest reason for the Mason City triumph. For Humboldt, Guard Hoyal Nyby was the outstanding player, with a scintillating court game which wound up when he scored his fourth field goal and third free, throw for a total of 11 points. Brandsgard and Suliclc, at forward and center, were also outstanding in defeat.

This covers cash customers only. The year- by-year figures show the low nark of 87,000 came in 3934. Meantime, other sports promo- ions in the Garden, with the exception of six-day bike racing ind professional wrestling, have shown some startling increases in jopularity. Pro hockey attendance ins jumped in 10 years from a of 258,000 to 430,000. At- endancc at indoor track meets incl the rodeo has more than doubled. Ice carnivals, college Basketball and amateur hockey, lone of which figured in the Garden box office a decade ago, last year drew, respectively, 100,000 150,000 and 190,000 cash customers. Don't Rely on Boxing. All this, in the belief of Yale's ilt to the Garden, President John Heed Kilpatrick, emphasizes that ;he big house Tex Rickard built no longer needs to rely on boxing to hold the "financial forts. Critics of the Garden's polic3' n general, or the tactics of its matchmaker, Jimmy Johnston, in particular, believe these factors iiave been more lo blame for loss of prestige and profits than any decline in pugilism itself. It is obvious, of course, that a large slice of the boxing business has been cut by Mike Jacobs for the benefit of himself and his associates. -Cauliflower alley reports to the contrary, however, the Garden lias not the slightest intention of abandoning of farming out its fistic interests. Million Dollar Sock. One of Ihe main reasons why Ihe Garden's directors arc willing to ride out the current pugilistic storm is that the balance sheet shows more than $1,000,000 on the right side of the ledger. For the past several years of Kilpalrick's presidency, the Garden has proceeded on the theory, novel to the boxing industry, there is no sound reason or necessity for double-dealing, undercover contracts or "cutting in' sundry parties calculated to boosi things along. The Garden caused further eyc- brow lifting and broke another long-standing precedent by d awny with ticket, "ice." This involved the practice of catering to demands for choice fight Uckelb by selling them at a price considerably above the face value. Excess Profit Heavy. For instance, if a 510 ducat was sold for $15, the "ice" ainounlec to S5. Such excess profits are subject lo a 50 per cent fedora tax, if i»e sale is made by the promoter. The impost is not so severe i£ a ticket broker docs the business. At any rate, and regardlrss o: the method of handling, the Gar- ;len did away with the "ice" there- eliminating a source o£ revenue and a basis for fistic dealing tha had many ramifications in the olc days. Whatever the merits or demerits of the Garden policy, one [act remains, so far as the heavyweight situation is concerned. Assets Are Slim. The "house" assets now final at Muscatine.

I-l'i IS'J MICHIGAN LEADS WAY IN TUSSLE FOR TRACK WIN Wolverines Try for Fourth Crown in Row; Buckeye Star Out of Meet. CHICAGO, (IP) -- Michigan's track forces were primed Saturday for a rush to their fourth consecutive Big Ten indoor title, but there was a possibility that one of the meet's most brilliant attractions, Charlie Beelham of Ol\io State, would not be in the struggle against Wolverine power. The tall, black-haired Buckeye star Friday night qualified for a place in Saturday night's finals of his favorite event, the half-mile run, but was taken to a hospital an hour later suffering with a heavy cold. Beetham led most of the way in the first heat of the half-mile trials, but apparently tiring badly, slowed down near the finish and trailed Mel Trull, a tiny Indiana sophomore. Trutt's time, 1 minute, 58.1 seconds, was the fastest of the three heats, but almost two seconds slower than Bcetham's winning time a year ago. Tommy Sexton finished second to Iowa's sophomore star, John Graves, in a 1:58.6 race, to qualify for the finals. The Wolverines grabbed two of the six places in the quarter-mile final. Stanley Birleson, who finished second last year when Ray Ellinwood of Chicago, set an American Indoor mark of 48.9 seconds for the event, won a heat in 50.4 seconds, and Steve Mason finished just behin Henry Keitcl of Northwestern, in another. The other heat was won by Fred Teufcl of Iowa, with George Halcrow of Chicago second, for the other qualifying place. Birleson's time was tops, shading the :50.G by Teufel and the :50.8 by Keitel.
