MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 15 · 1937 NINE NEW CHAMPION TO LEAD IOWA CAGE ACES OUT of the PRESSBOX By Al Mitchell It's been a long time since tills column had a really good day . . no cracks, please . . . but now that the basketball season is more or less over, in Mason City at least, and it's getting along towards spring, perhaps ye olde conductor can shake a new thought or three out of his typewriter fingers. * ? * , There are a lew things from the basketball season sticking with me, though . . . chiel among them is the fact that Mason City's Mohawks "turned out to be a darned good ball club. Remember . . . before you shed too many tears over Mason City's defeat by Marshalltown in the sixth district championship game . . . that t h e Mohawks a r e still among the top teams of Iowa. There were only 32 outfits out of 853 left in the title chase when play' started Saturday night . . . and I'll wager that Mason City was better than some o[ those which will appear at Drake field- house this week.

Since '·this olde typewriter pounder started covering high school basketball, Dunkerton has been the only Class B high school to win the high schoolcrown . . . and if you care to check the records, you'll see that Dunkerton was the only honest-to-gosh small town team ever to win Even Osage, which won the championship, in Iowa's first organized tournament under the present system, would" resent being called a small town, and rightly so. DES MOINES, (/P)--A new boys' high school basketball champion will be crowned here this week. Iowa's winter sports classic will get under way Thursday with 10 teams, the class of the original field of 852 starters, vicing for the throne vacated by Ames' tumbled champions of last year. Launching honors, under the time schedule announced today by George A. Brown, executive secretary, go to Blencoe and East Waterloo, who start the balls flying at 10 o'clock Thursday. The Maloy-Marshalltown struggle at 9:20 the same night closes the first round competition. The two feature attractions of opening round hostilities are expected to be the Davenport-Newton clash at 2 o'clock and the Maloy-Marshalltown fight for a second round berth at 9:20. Bobcats Beat Mohawks. Marshalltown's Bobcats, a central Iowa conference power, established themselves as an early favorite by overcoming Mason City, IS to 12, in the finals of the sixth district tournament at Webster City Saturday night. Only three of last year's contenders--Davenport, Bronson and Maloy--were able to survive the , So, point finally to arrive at a. I've been wondering "why, year after year, the Class B liigli school teams lose their distinction in the final session of the Iowa tournament. Why they are forced to compete against bigger schools on an even footing . . . for a prize that they can hardly Iiopc to win. I don't think that the present tournament plan is fair to the Class B schools who compete in the final session : , : and I believe sectional year.

To come directly to another point . . . after knowing Secretary George A. Brown but slightly, and after taking all freedom in criticizing him and his state high school athletic setup, I had the chance to become much better acquainted 'with him last Saturday night at Webster City. = * t He told me, with a grin . . . and in effect, although not in so many words . . . "say anything about me you like . . . I don't have time to read the papers." So here, George A., you have it: This year, would be a fine time to start paying for value received at the final session of the state tournament. secutive appearance for portly Paul Moon's Davenport Blue Devils, who draw Newton's central Iowa conference champions as their opening round opponent.

NEW HAMPTON -- Waverly, West Union, Decorah. and New Hampton each placed two boys on the all-Northeast Iowa conference coaches' team selected at their annual spring meeting, held Saturday. All of the teams that placed boys on the lineup were in the first division. The fact that Kepler, Waverly forward who played only a few conference games due to injuries, was not placed on the team did not take any of his prestige away as the m e n t o r s heaped lavish praise upon his work in the first games, but not enough had seen him in action. Repeaters were numerous. The Carney brothers, Harry and Gerald of New Hampton; Wiltgen and Kamm of West Union, Bernalz oE Decorah and Chestnut of Waverly were given a ranking on previous teams. Members of the 1936-37 cage team were largely responsible for the success of their own squads. Standout of Squad. Bernatz of Decorah was the standout in his squad that advanced to the semifinals of the district after dropping West Union, second place winners the league. Jacobson was the othei important link on the Vikinj, team. ' '^ \ Van Heel, Go-Hawk pivot man was a high scorer consistentlj during most of the season. His splendid work on offense kept Ihi team in the front rank and helpec win the conference title. Chestnut the Waverly guard, was a standout although only a little fellow Clair Wiltgen, West Union forward, led the speediest offense in the conference with the help o Kamm at guard. The Carney brothers are gener ally regarded as being the sparl plugs for the New Hampton team Enemy Held Back. With them the team kept th opposition always within a 2. point total, while when they were both out the Chickasaws dropped a game 53 to 18. Hintz, Ochvein forward, playec well throughout the season bu was not on a team that could hel] him go places. Heist, Waverly played well for the Go-Hawk but was not regarded in the sam light of Bernatz, Wiltgen and Hairy Carney. Waldron of Wes Union and Thomas of Waukon were placed on the honor roll a pivot men. Bonsell, Charles Cit; guard, was hampered during mos of the season with a bad ankle During the sectional tournamen he was barely able to hobbl about. Seaton of Osage had th difficult task of being assignei the "hot-shot" o£ the oppositio: and his work throughout the sea son was commendable. Meade o Nashua was another good guar but had no chance to show any thing as his team lost all confer ence engagements. 16 Teams to Scrap at DeMofay Tussl DES MOINES, (/P)--At least 1 teams will compete in the annua state DeMolay basketball tourna ment at Boone on March 25, 2 and 27, Judge Hubert Utterback director of the meet, said Monday Six teams have already maile in their entries.

Kaycnay Engraving) Leo Johnson to Get Big Ten Coach Post CHAMPAIGN, 111., (/P)--Illinois had a new head track coach Monday--Leo T. Johnson, director of athletics at James Milliken u n i - versity and one-time basketball, football, baseball and track star at the institution. Johnson's appointment as head track mentor, and also as an assistant freshman football coach at Illinois, was announced Saturday night by Athletic Director Wendell S. Wilson. Johnson succeeds Don C. Seaton, whose resignation as track coach was announced simultaneously with the appointment of Johnson, who will report at Illinois next September. By ALAN GOULD NEW YORK, (rP)There rarely as been much logic in the boxing ndustry, ranging from its early ays as a fugitive sport to the post var era of fabulous gate receipts, oeial register patronage and ring- ide racketeering. This applies especially to the icavyweight ranks. Tex Rickard roved how effectively the big fel- ows could be ballyhooed. The iiodern generation of fight fans, e discovered, was willing to pay ancy prices to see heavyweights matter each Mother, whereas a sci- ntific match between two lop- notch smaller men scarcely drew expenses. The post war heavyweight "gold ush" resulted in such spectacular nternational matches as Jack 5empsoy's title bouts with ' Gorges Carpentier and Luis Angel irirpo. From a scientific sland- joint, neither was a good match, nut both fights drew well over 51,000,000 and aroused tremendous popular interest. Tlcads With Dempsey. Rickard, himself, was so fearful something might happen to Car- jcnlier in front of 90,000 specta- ,ors, the biggest crowd to witness i fight up to that time--1921-hat the promoter pleaded with Dempsey before hand to "go easy." Firpo, strictly a slugger and acking experience, balked at be- ng rushed into a match with Dempsey in 1923, but yielded to Rickard's persuasion and the lure ot §100,00"0 in cash. The financial possibilities in size alone reached a new high when a Broadway syndicate imported Primo Camera, the Italian circus freak, several years ago. In spite of the fact Da Preem could neither fight nor punch, he won the heavyweight championship. Lonsr Standing Objection, Long standing objection by promoters, as well as politicians, to a "mixed" match for the heavyweight championship has ended with current arrangements for Joe Louis to fight Champion James J. Braddock at Chicago. Louis was the logical contender for a bout with Braddock in New York last year, but that was before the Negro was flattened by Germany's Max Schmeling. The "color line" was drawn in the old days by some heavyweight champions. Two great Negro heavyweights of their time, Peter Jackson and Sam Langford, never had a "shot" at the title. Mainly, however, it was the disturbing reaction in 1910 to .Tack Johnson's victory over Jim- Jeffries that led Rickard and his Garden successors to avoid any efforts to promote "mixed" heavyvyeight title bouts. Wills Was Contender. Shortly after the war, Harry Wills, the "Brown Panther" of New Orleans, became an outstanding title contender. He was finally rated No. 1 on the list of. Jack Dempsey's challengers by the Now York fistic fathers. Riek- ard, under some pressure, once went so far as to set a date for a Wills-Dempsey match in Boyle's Thirty Acres, and give an order for tickets, in 1923, but it was just a gesture. Tex refused to admit, however, that political leaders told him to "lay off." Meantime, Rickard had selected Gene Tunney as a championship opponent for Dempsey. He was forced finally, and on short notice, to move the first of their two fights to Philadelphia. The New York commission, insisting that Wills get first chance at the title, refused to license the match here. Fiffhfs Draw Cash. Rickard's financial misgivings vanished when the 1928 fight in Philadelphia drew $1,895,733 and the second Dempse3 i -Tunney bout, in Chicago, soared to $2,658,660 in gross receipts. Jack Sharkey was the logical challenger for Tunney's last title match, in 1928, but Tom Hecney, a rugged but mediocre New Zealander, got the bout. Rickard rated Shnrkey highly as a title threat, but died before the Boston sailor f i n a l l y got to the top. Young Stribling, another prospect that Rickard expected to go places, was fatally hurt in a motorcycle accident in his native Georgia. Max Schmeling automatically became the No. 1 contender for the heavyweight crown when he knocked out Louis. The German and Braddock signed for a title match here, originally last September, then for this June 3. The "logic" o£ this soon became so apparent, however, that the deal for the Chicago match between Louis and Braddock was arranged, thereby upholding the best traditions of the heavyweight industry Cor doing something different.
