Shaughnessy Probably Not Dissatisfied With Pitt Grid Prospects; of Ed Head Reports are out that Clark Shaughnessy, last year's grid coach at Pittsburgh, is considering an offer to coach the Washington Redskins ot the National professional footbal Johawks Win, Maroons Lose in Meet MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Friday, March 3, 1911 all- he league, and that he is dissatisfied with the future of the coliegiatc sport during the war. Somehow, we're inclined to take that hitler statement with a grain of salt. Shaughnessy, we feel, isn't the type to become "easily discouraged with a team because it had poor material or a rotten record, especially during these times. The former Tulane, Chicago and Stanford mentor was probably the most outstanding spokesman for the continuation of athletics last year, and wrote a highly popular and informative book on safety for athletes, especially the freshmen and newcomers to the game. He seemed to enjoy working with the Panthers, and was quoted as saying his boys need not fear tangling with the bigger, older and more experienced players it' they took the proper safely measures. He took the lead in teaching safety in football. That's why it sounds sort of fishy to us when it's alleged that Shaughnessy is dissatisfied with the poor teams these days and the prospects at Pittsburgh and the remainder of ST. JOSEPH'S DEFEATS MANLY Johawks Will Tangle Friday With Carpenter Xorthwood -- St. Joseph's basketball team continued on its merry way through class B opposition in the sectional tournament here Thursday night, defeating Manly, 43-26, and earning itself a berth in the semi-finals carded here for Friday night. The failure of 'more Railroader players to come through for field goals played a big part in the defeat ot Coach Abe Martin's outfit. Three men. Collis, llogan and Tatc did al! ot the Manly point- gctlinjj, the college grid world. AVe think you'll find w i t h Hogan leading the way on 7 buckets and 5 charity tosses for 19 points. Forward Jim Collotou led the Johawk attack with 12 points, but the remainder of the scoring was evenly distributed, Center the likeable tutor buck in the SmoKy City once again, leading Pitt through its 1!M1 football schedule. i Look for Pitcher Ed Head of the Brooklyn Dodgers to become one of the aces $f the National league this season. The youngster figures to be the number 2 man oh the Flatbush mound crew, and may even supplant Whit Wyatt, now doped as number 1 of the crew. Here's what Manager Lippy Durocher has to say about Head: "There's no reason why Head shouldn't come into his own this season. He has had two years of big league experience behind him and I figure him to reach his peak this year. He shapes up as the best youngster on our staff and I look for him to win many games. "He has learned a lot in the past two years and should be ready for a banner season." Last year Head won 9 and lost 10 with the Bums, but there were times when he showed flashes of greatness on the hill. Years ago Head had his left arm smashed in a bus accident and therefore switched to the right, and is now one of the most promising hurlers in the loop. He'll be worth watching. Frank Paitee collecting 8 markers and Jerry Coyle 7 to follow in line. Friday night the Blue and W h i t e was to hit Carpenter in a semifinal game. Thursday, Carpenter downed Rock Falls, 37-29. to gain its berth. Should the Johawks come through this game unscathed, they move into the finals Saturday, meeting the winner of day's game between Kensctt Mitchell. ST. JOSEPH'S J.

Holy Family trailed most of the way, but it was a contest throughout the entire game except for the closing minutes of the fourth quarter when Mitchell pulled ahead for keeps. The Maroons netted Iti fiek goals to Mitchell's 12, wind would have been more than enough to win the game had a decent percentage of free throws been made. Father Kicfcr's warriors sank only li gratis tosses, while Mitchell made the best of its opportunity to hit on 17 of them. The winners held a one-point, 11-10 margin at the end of the first quarter, but increased it to 5 points, 20-15, at the intermission. The Maroons came back in the third quarter to pull up within 2 points of Mitchell, 30-28,'then slipped behind to stay in the final period. Mitchell, by virtue of its victory, tangles with Kensett in the semi-final round Friday. Center Joe McCauley led the evening's scoring with 21 points. NORTH IOWA BASKETBALL By BOB MEYER Chicago, UM9--One of the screwiest basketball seasons in the 38-year history of the Big Ten--a season enhanced rather than hampered by youthful wartime personnel--winds up this weekend. Appropos of the topsy-turvy character that has marked the 116-game schedule, 2 teams that were considered 2nd division finishers, Ohio State and Iowa, hold top spots in the race. Both teams are all-civilian, their rosters sprinkled with freshmen and sophomores. Unlike the 1043 football season. the teams that are strengthened by navy and marine talent have taken a back seat to the conference's 2 outstanding civilian out- Jits. The wind-up card this weekend includes the all-important Northwestern-Iowa scries, in which Iowa makes its final bid for share of Ohio State's title. Other curtain-closers arc Minnesota's 2 games at Illinois, Wisconsin at Little Cedar, Comets, Rockford Win Marble Hock--Little C c d a r, Hoc I; ford and Charles City t r i - umphed in sectional basketball tournament play here Thursday lit. Little Cedar dumped Immaculate Conception of Charles City, 35-15. The winners led at halftime, \l-5. H took Rockford an overtime period to send Nora Springs down lo defeat, 2ii-23. Nora Springs led at the intermission, 0-5. Charles City earned its t r i u m p h by · clowning Osage, 38-23. The Cornels led at halftime, 18-9. Garner, Beimond Victors in Meet Beimond--Two class A games held tlie spotlight here Thursday night as Garner and Beimond turned in victories in ihe sectional tournament. G a r n e r defeated Dows. 39-15, having little trouble earning the victory. The Cardinals led at the intermission. 20-8. and coasted through the second half. Beimond turned back Kanawha, 34-17. a f t e r leading 15-9 at the hall. Bob Nelson led the Beimond attack, while Roger Johnson led the Kanawha offense. * ' Kensett, Carpenter Win at North wood Doughten Roethler 1IO1.V F A M I L Y Frank, f Vcsa. f ·McCauk'y, c ...

Closely aligned with the clos- g surge for team honors will be le final attempt of at least 10 avers to better their positions i the heated race for individual coring honors, currently led by owa's Dick Ives with 178 points. Ives and his teammate. Dave lanner (170 points), were ex- ected to corner honors during leir 2 remaining games, al- lough Ray Patterson of Wiscon- 11 (1G6 points) had a chance to limb just behind the leaders by atteninfr his total against the ·eak Chicago team. Other sharpshooters now hav- ng more than 90 points who can ncrease their totals this weekend re Paul Hoffman, Purdue (140); jtan Patrick, Illinois (119); Junior Cirk. Illinois (116): Desmond Smith, Wisconsin (113): Charles Haag. Purdue (101): Ben Schader, Northwestern (f!5), and Denis Horn. Purdue (03). Of these top scorers, 4 arc fresh- nen and 3 t are sophomores, which gives a h i n t of what the young- ters have done for basketball in ts 3rd wartime season. Iowa, with 8 victories and 2 Meats, must sweep both games ainst Northwestern this weekend to share Ohio's crown. A split would give the Buckeyes an un- lisputed title, their 3rd in con- 'crence history. Iowa never has icld the t i t l e alone, but tied for t in 1023 and 1D2G. Should Ives or Banner gain the scoring championship, it would be the 2nd :ime in history that Iowa has taken that honor. The Illinois-Minnesota games arc insignificant as far as the title race is concerned, because both arc far out of the running, Ru( the Purdue-Indiana and Wisconsin-Chicago games may have a bearing oil 2nd or 3rd place, ttc- pcniliiiR upon how Iowa and Northwestern split up their 2 games. Principal non-conference games will find Notre Dame trying to offset the so-so record of 10 triumphs and" 8 defeats by- downing the clever Camp Grant team, and DePaul moots Wisconsin in a "battle of centers." with Ray Patterson and George Mikan clashing. Leo Klier of the Irish will attempt to break the all- time Notre Dame scoring record of 200 points set by Johnny Moil- in 22 games in 1938. Klier. in only 19 games, needs 20 points against the rigid Grant defense lo turn the 'rick. Ottumwa 5, Iowa City Meet Victors Des Moincs, f.'P)--Another batch of hopefuls fell by the wayside Thursday night* as contestants in (54 Iowa high school sectional basketball tournaments w h i r 1 e d through another evening of fast play.. Most of the favorites stayed in the- race which remained largely a class B show with few of the larger schools in action. In class A competition.

They drew gates of 594,500 and S9G.873 in their 2 previous title encounters. Each registered a victory in those engagements, making Friday night's meeting a "rubber match." Beau Jack, former Georgia bootblack, is favored at 2-1 lo beat M o n t g o m e r y o f Philadelphia, former laundry worker, in this ultra-important brawl. They are fighting for the New York version of tho lightweight crown; and the winner will tangle with Sammy Angott at the Garden on March 31 for the world's undisputed lightweight championship. Angott Norlhwoort -- KcnscU's touring cagers and Carpenter advanced to the semi-final round of the class B sectional here Thursday night, as Kensett defeated Grafton. 3228. and Carpenter downed Rock falls, 37-20.

Molinaro won by decision. Christian high of Polla. is recognized as champion by the National Boxing association. Beau .lack is favored Friday night because (1) he beat Monty by a fair margin in their last tilt on Nov. 19, and (2) Montgomery suffered a liS'-sccimd knockout by Welterweight Bummy Davis 2 weeks ago. Despite the 2-1 price, it is a big- betting fight, w i t h Montgomery well supported by fans who believe that his knockout by Davis -- f i r s t kayo in his career of fiS fights--was a fluke.

When the long-awaited 4 m i n u t e mile is turned in for the record books, it won't be an American runner who performs the feat.
