MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 24 1936 NINE G-G BASEBALL SCHOOL OPENS--READ ETHAN ALLEN'S TIPS * * * * * * * * * * * * * # * * * * * * * Â· * Â· ' # * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * MOHAWKS TO MEET AUSTIN ON SATURDAY Out of the Pressbox -By Al Mitchell- Change of Heart? Â·THERE'S one thing that is hard to Â·I understand about the transfer of Hairy Stuhldreher from Villanova college to the University of Wisconsin, as athletic director and coach . . . aside from the fact that it's always hard to understand why the bigger schools move in such secrecy, their wonders to perform, when they are hiring athletic directors and head coaches. * * * Here's the sticker . . . although there was no direct offer made, Ed ILauer, former athletic director of the University of Iowa, talked to Stuhldreher about taking the Hawkeye coaching job . . . all this back in 1932, just after Burt Ingwersen had dropped the reins. The Villanova coach, who met Lauer at Pittsburgh .to confer with him, was too well satisfied with his old job to leave it ... and it was easy to see that he didn't care to step into the turbulent situation at. Iowa, which had barely gotten back into the good graces of the Western conference . . . he said as much. * * * What, I wonder, has caused His change of heart? After a long and successful career at VHlanova . . . with, more and better years written iÂ« the record than were there when Ed Lauer talked to him . , . Stuhldreher is taking over a job that has just risen out of the smelliest mess ever stirred up in a major university. He has certainly made an about-face. . . * * * The story of Iowa's coaching difficulty of four years ago is brought strongly into memory by his appointment. ... I don't know whether it has been generally known before or not, but only three genuine offers were made by the athletic .board when' Iowa was seeking a coach, four years ago. Sleepy Jim Crowlsy, now at Fordham; Gus Dorais, now at Detroit, and Ossie Solem, who came from Drake to take the job, were the only ones who really were asked to coach at Iowa. * # * : .Others were considered!'In-fact, Iowa would have probably; rehired Howard Jones of Southern California . . . except for the matter of salary. Jones, who was visited by Prof. Rudolph Kuever of the college of pharmacy . . . in Chicago . . . wanted to start at 515,000 and expected an annual increase which would have brought his salary to $18,000 in five seasons. * a * Iowa's president, Walter A. Jessup, now head of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching . . . was about to take a salary reduction just as Jones stated his terms. President Jessup's salary was being dropped considerably from .?] 3,000! And the athletic board could see all too plainly the protests that might rise if the head coach were to draw a bigger paycheck than the president of the university! * * * - Matty Bell, who sent Texas (Con(louÂ«r on I'UKC 1C) AZETTE S Managers, Hired Hands Redeem Selves After Losses Relays Begin 27th Stand at Drake, 1,5000 Contest Hoosiers Set Sights on New Record in Medley Event.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, CD -- Dick Shikat, Ferman claimant of the world's heavyweight wrestling crown, and Joe Alvarez, Boston matchmaker, were back on the federal court mat for another airing of their contract troubles Friday, with Judge Mell G. Underwood as the referee. At least 10 witnesses were expected to take the stand as Alvarez attempted to prove that a managerial contract signed with him by Shikat was binding, and that an accounting of the champ's earnings was necessary. Thursday's session found written into the record a charge that six eastern American promoters were running the wrestling game as a "trust;" another that wrestlers operating within the alleged trust were forced to post forfeits to assure that they would "take orders," and still another that Shikat had been ordered to "lay down" in his match' wih Dan O'Mahoney March 2, but instead, "crossed" everyone and won the title in 19 minutes.

O H A B E L SON AT NUMBER S E V E N SOUTH F E O E R A l By L. E. SKELLEY Associated Press Sports Writer DES MOINES, (IP)--The Drake relays--the track and field games Maj. John L. Griffith, Big Ten athletic commissioner, founded 27 years ago--opened here. Friday with hardy young athletes from all parts of the nation in the field. The feature event of the first day's program was the distance medley in which Indiana university, with Don Lash, the great middle distance runner, running the mile leg of the race, set its sights on a new world mark to eclipse the 10:12^7 performance by Emporia Kansas State Teachers at the Kansas games last week. 20 Events Listed. There were 20 events, including eight allotted to high school teams, on the inaugural day session of the carnival which attracted 1,500 athletes. Finals of the discus throw, broad jump and four relays in the college division were on the first day schedule besides the distance medley. Jss Petty, Rice institute's husky entry, and Milan Zori, of North Carolina state, winner at the Penn games two years ago, were leading contenders for discus throw honors. Each was given a chance of wiping out the Drake relays mark of 158 feet, 3 inches by Tom Jark of the Army in 1929. Owen's Mark Safe. There was little prospect that any of the contestants would touch Jess Owen's 26 feet, !%Â· inches mark in the broad jump, but Meagher 01 Notre' Dame, with a record of 24 feet, 9% inches, was the favorite to cop the honor this year. The top attractions were reserved for Saturday when Glenn Cunningham, the former. Kansas flier, anc Ray Ellinwood, Chicago university's quarter mile ace, were listed for the feature billings. Cunningham, holder of the world mile record, will attempt to crack the 2:10 mark for the 1,000 yards in a special race. Champions to Run. His opponents include EIroy Robinson, Fresno state's national col- l e g i a t e half mile champion; Harry Williamson of North Carolina, Canadian half mile king, and Ray Sears, Butler university's greal distance runner. Ellinwood, who set a new world mark for the indoor quarter mile in the Big Ten meet last winter, will race an all-star field including Winston (Sunny) Heg, Northwestern's 440-yard ace.

A good outfielder is able to start quickly for the ball. The best start is made from a crouched position with the hands on the knees. Start with short steps and increase your stride gradually. Catch fly balls above the belt either with the palms out and the fingers up or with the palms in and the fingers up. Fly balls caught below the belt are handled with the palms out and the fingers down. Make catches with the left foot for. ward (if you are a right-handed thrower) provided there is time enough to get set for the catch. Field ground balls the same as infielders, except in situations where the ball is hit unusually hard or a hurried play is not necessary. In the latter case, block the ball with your body. Make all throws overhand anc keep the ball low. Bounce the ball to the receiver on long throws. Try to know where each hitter likely to hit, the speed of the base- runners, the number of outs, the score, the inning and the direction of the wind. Back up infielders and other outfielders and make use of your voice in calling for fly balls or informing a team mate that he has the right of way. Study the individual and team tactics of your opponents so that you can anticipate offensive strategy- (Copyright, 1935 by the Athletic Institute, Inc.) SAD AFTERNOONS WIPED OUT WHEN CLUBS WIN TIFFS Tigers, Dodgers, A's Break Out in Victory Rash on Thursday Program. By ANDY CLARICE Associated Press Sports Writer. A trio of major league managers and one of the hired hands were holding up their heads with an unmistakable air of pride Friday af- :er a day of redemption which wiped out the memory of a few unpleasant afternoons. Mickey Cochrane's Detroit Tigers, champions of the world, took a wide decision from the St. Louis Srowns, twice their conquerors, Thursday; the merry men of Casey Stengel becoming serious after dropping their first three games to Jieir hated rivals from across the river, belted over those Giants, and the venerable Connie Mack's Athletics, beaten three times by the Red Sox, turned and notched a victory against the Golden boys. Makes Up for Boot. Bill Myers, Reds' shortstop hammered out a homerun to beat the St. Louis Cards, in atonement for his error that enabled them to tie the score. There was a note of dismay in the Dodger rejoicing, however. Randy Moore, right fielder, broke his leg while attempting to steal second in the second inning of a bitter duel which went 10 frames. A pinch Major Stars By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Dixie Walker and George Selkirk, Yankees--Third homeruns, each with two men en base, led Yanks to win over Senators. Sidney Gautreaux, Dodgers -- Hit pinch single in the last half of the tenth gave Dodgers a victory over Giants. Harry Kclley, Athletics--His three hit pitching gave Athletics a 9 to 1 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Larry French. Cubs--Won pitchers' duel with Ralph Eirkofer, scattering: six hits to win over Pirates, 2 to 1. Lew Rig'gs, Reds--Hit a homer in the tenth with Gilly Campbell on base to beat Cards, 8 to 6. Leo Norris, Phillies--Drove in three of his team's five runs to beat Bees, 5 to 3. Johnny Allen, Indians--His seven hit pitching- shut out the White Sox. Hank Greenberg and Elden Auker, Tigers -- Former drove in four runs with three hits, and latter shut out Browns with six hits. Wrestling By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CAMDEN, N.

By ALAN GOULD Associated Press Sports Editor NEW YORK, U--The big league managers on the active list--more or less--still carry a slight majority vote in any gathering of this select company of master minds, but the campaign of 1936 looks like their last stand. Including Rogers Hornsby of the St. Louis Browns, on the technical ground he is still available for pinch-hitting purposes, the margin is 9 to 7 over the bench-warming strategists. Even this is stretching things, for the time being, inasmuch as manager Joe Cronin of the Red Sox is out with a broken thumb, making it impossible for the playing pilots to put their full strength on the field. Cronin is Youngest. Cronin, nearing 30, is the youngest of the playing managers who have occupied dominating places in the last half dozen years. The others range in age from Mickey Cochrane's 33 to Hornsby's 40. They have had from a dozen to 20 years of big -league service so it is not surprising to discover most of them prepared either to end their regular activity this year or share their jobs on the field with younger men Bill Terry of the New York Giants is anxious to quit. He obtained a first-class understudy, Sam Leslie, in a winter trade br.it every time Memphis Bill steps out on the field he happens to be the hardest hitting and best fielding first sacker in the National league.

(.P) -- Three thousand aspiring athletes--some of them with their eyes on this summer's Olympics--invade Frankin field's huge concrete horseshoe Friday and Saturday for the forty- second renewal of the University of Pennsylvania's relays classic. Following time-honored custom, they start out with the colorful 400- meter hurdles, an Olympic event, n which Charles Beetham of Ohio State is a heavy favorite. They will wind up late Saturday with the stiff four-mile relay, in which Michigan, Army, Michigan State and possibly Penn with Gene Vcn- zke, are expected to battle it out. In between are the standard relays and individual events, but the program this year has been cu considerably by elimination of less important events that have chit tercd up the schedule in the past Renewal of the spring and broac jump duel between Jesse Owens o Ohio State and Eulaco Peacock o Temple is the big attraction.
