Major League Ball Clubs Lose More Star Players Spotlight Sports By Roger Rosenblum Jim Pattce of Mason City received special mention for good work in Creighton's victory over St. Louis university, 69-25, last Saturday night. Pattec und one other'forward were cited among the freshmen for their play. Latest reports are that Pattee has been moved up to fill the shoes of Don Radtke, thus making him the first-line replacement for Joe Loisel, regular varsity forward. Another · Mason City boy, Bob Henley, ranks up among the scorers on the Drake university quintet that faces Oklahoma A' M at Des Moines Friday night. * * * Ever hear of that 220-0 foof- ball game played in 1916 between Georgia Tech and Cumberland university of Lebanon. Tenn.? It's the largest score on record, and Dean Gauldin, the Dallas county district attorney doivn Texas way tells the story of how it hapoened. * * * "Twenty-five years ago Georgia Tech had a great team that had been mowing down rival colleges with alarming regularity. Then, in the midst of that crisp October of 1916, Tech found itself without a game for the following Saturday. "Somebody thought of Cumberland university to fill the open date. Cumberland was noted for the number of distinguished lawyers and jurists it turned out but had discontinued football two years previous. "Tech athletic officials were unaware that the grid sport no longer flourished at Cumberland so they sent a telegram inviting the Tennessee school to a pigskin joust at Tech field, traveling expense's paid. * * * "There was a mistake and the telegram was delivered to the ; Kappa Sigma fraternity house instead of to university authorities. The boys at (he frat-house read it with more than passing interest and somebody said 'let's play 'em.' * * * "fn a twinkling the boys had framed a reply in the name of the non-existent university athletic director. Tech wired tickets to 15 members of the 'squad 1 which meanwhile had rummaged through the basement of the gymnasium and fitted itself with moth-eaten uniforms. "While waiting for the train, the boys made up a few signals they ngured would result in scoring Plays. But this was all done mentally as they hadn't had time to train since they were in high school. Incidentally, they neglected to tell university authorities about the proposed trip. "Arriving at the field, the doughty boys from Cumberland participated in a game which became a rout from the start. The average weight of the team was 145 pounds." ¥ * * Today- Dean Gauldin doesn't weigh much more than that The strain might have been too much for him--he played quarterback. * * * One-point basketball g a m e s seem to be the nemesis of Iowa's Hawkeyes. In the last 10 seasons the opposition lias had the edge, for Iowa lost seven of the 10 single-pointers, four of them to Minnesota. Hawkeye teams have now won II and lost eight contests for the 1942-43 sports season. In football it was 6-4, cross country. 1-2, and basketball to date 4-2. They need one more win to even up the record against conference foes, which now stands at five victories six defeats.

W--Defiance college's cagers rolled up a new season scoring mark jn Ohio collegiate basketball circles Wednesday night in defeating Bluffton college, 104 to 39, but there was nothing new about the Derform- ance for either Bluffton" or Defiance.

Urges Army Use Golf's Clubhouses By DILLON GRAHAM AP Features Sports Editor NEW YORK -- Gene Sarazen, one of golf's most prolific "idea" producers, suggests the government use goif clubhouses for hospitals (o care for men wounded in the war. "There are many clubhouses throughout the country that are big enough and sufficiently well equipped that they could be transformed quickly into hospitals," he said. "That's just another way golf can help the war effort." "\V i t h building materials badly needed for other war purposes, why should the^goveni- roent have to build hospitals when there are so many large and well furnished clubhouses Ihat would serve well for that purpose? "These clubs already have the most modern fixtures, large kitchens, showers, etc. It strikes me they would seiive admirably as recuperating hospitals. "Some clubs might offer a wing of their clubhouse and undertake to furnish it with beds and other necessities. Perhaps the women members of the club could serve as nurses' aides. "What with men going into the service, and taxes and other business problems forcing other men to resign from 'clubs, it might be the salvation of some of these clubs if the government made use of them, paid a small fee per patient, and enabled (hem to pay their land taxes instead of letting the course revert to a patch of weeds." Sarazen said the government had already taken over some big hotels and golf clubs to house troops and soldiers in training but suggested the plan be carried much farther. He thought it even possible that some men might even be returned to their home towns, to clubhouse hospitals, to recuperate where they could be with their friends * * * Looking ahead to the war's end, Sarazen foresees' golf becoming America's national game. He thinks it will be a game for the masses and that there will be fewer exclusive clubs with' stiff dues and initiation fees. He thinks equipment will be less expensive and that tariffs will be so reduced that there will be larger sale of American- ;olf clubs in other countries. much made Thousands of dollars are be"-" ing spent on research connected with production of the tools of war but Gene believes that the discoveries made now wilt be of great use later in the manufacturing of sports goods. * * * Like every sport, golf will come up with a lot of new faces after the war but Sarazen believes that two fellows who were tops this year probably will be among the leaders then. too. They are Byron Nelson and Sam Snead. He figures Snead, now in the navy, probably will be a championship contender longer than Nelson because Sammy has a stronger build. Get a //oss, Cry in Chi for Golfers CHICAGO, (/Pj--Come spring, golfers from at least two Chicago clubs can chant "Tally Ho! Gas ban or no. giddap and a-golfing we will go." * * * It's all because old dobbin and horse drawn coaches or buses are expected to ease the gas and tire rationing: problem for golfers at the Tarn O'Shanter and Bob O'Link clubs. * * * In fact. Tarn O'Shanter, home of the all American open and amateur events, will not wait for spring. President George S. May said he had procured a team ot horses and a handsome coach of the Tally Ho school and would put the combination to use immediately, transporting members to winter sports activities at the northwest side club * # * The coach will seat ei*ht passengers on the top deck and four more in the cab below. * * * Bob O'Link, the all men's club located in suburban Highland park, hns purchased a horse drawn bus of the type that once met va- cationists bound for summer resort hotels. It, too, will scat at least a dozen persons comfortably. WILDCAT TITTOR'LEAVES CHICAGO, (/P)_Carl "Bus" Owen, for nine years a member of the Northwestern university football coaching staff, has resigned in order to devote his entire time to duties as general agent of a life insurance firm here. He played as a lineman with the Wildcat grid- clers tor three years, beginning in A New Patrol SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON NEW YORK, fiP)--The oilier day the University of Illinois hockey team had to call otf a game with Minnesota because it had only seven players available after they had met once. It also called off the rest of its schedule. . . . Gordon Gilmore of the St. Paul Dispatch provides further information that b o t h teams wanted to let Illinois use freshmen so the second game could be played as an "exhibition" but the Western conference faculty representative said no because of the Big Ten freshman rule. . . . This, Gilmore points out, caused Minnesota to waste some 17,600 man miles of transportation. It also leads us to wonder what kind of trains were m e a n t in those high-flown speeches we've heard about the valuable "training" offered by college athletics. Spar Reporter Choc Htttcheson, sports editor of the Lubbock, Tex., Avalanche- Journal, asked PFC- Thad Ricks of the South Plains army flying school public relations office to find out something of the ability of the SPAFS golden gloves boxers. : . . PFC Ricks. 140 pounds dripping wet, decided to interview each one with 16-ounce gloves. "I'm going to judge you on how hard you hit me," he told the first. . . . Next day PFC Ricks appeared in the^sports sanctum with one black eye, one swollen cheek, one split lip and assorted bruises. . . "We've got one lightweight that's pretty good," he mumbled. "I know that. But you'll have to take the coaches' word about the rest of them." Sporlpourri After George Young, who works in the Liberty aircraft plant at Farmingdale, L, I., finished ninth in the national individual bowling tourney at Chicago, bowling interest at the plant picked up so much that loO teams were in action. Causing no little confusion in local fight circles is the fact t h a t California Jackie Wilson, who meets Jake Lnmotta Friday, isn't a native of California and isn't named Jackie. He's George Dudley Wilson, born in Spencer. N. Car., and brought up in Cleveland. . . . And no matter what happens in the Chalky Wright-Joey PeraHa fuss, it'll be a Mexican standoff. Both were born in Mexico. . . When Montana U. lost its second basketball coach of the season, the job was turned over to Eddie Chinske. Missoula high school pilot. Chinske handles the high school team in the afternoon and the university at night, making' him probably the only college coach with his own farm System. Today's Guest Star Tommy Fitzgerald, Louisville Courier-Journal: "When the new food ration books come out, we'll give you six points and take Notre Dame." HELEN JACOBS JOIXS UP RICHMOND, Va., (UP.)--Helen Jacobs, tennis star, will report to the officers candidate training school of the WAVES at Smith college, Jan. 16, the naval officers procurement center said Thursday. Miss Jacobs came to Richmond to : enroll in the women's naval reserve from nearby William and Mary college, where she had been taking special courses. Landis' Ban on Detroit Tigers Lifted Thursday DETROIT. yP)_The - Detroit Tigers finally got out of Commissioner K. M. Landis' doghouse Thursday after doing a three-year stretch for irregularities in farm operations. That's what the judge called it on Jan. 14, J!MU, when lie cracked clown on the Tigers in a momentous decision-^unmatched in baseball annals 'thai set 90 players of any strings held by De- free troit. Furthermore, t h e w h i t e - mancd commissioner fixed a three-year embargo on Detroit dealings with a dozen or more minor league affiliates involved in the decision and prohibited the Timers from making any passes at the emancipated talent. The lime limit was up Thursday. * * * With Hank Greenburj* and 17 others in the nation's service, the Tigers could use some reinforcement, and General Manager Jack Zcller would derive personal satisfaction from getting back some of the 90. But those still in the game are well sewed up. "Ninety, players, just think of it," Zeller said longingly. "Why that's about three times as many players as we havc available now That's practically half a league by war standards." * * * Curiously, only two of the 90 --Outfielder Roy Cullcnbine of the Cleveland Indians and Pitcher Lloyd Diclz of Die Pittsburgh Pirates--are cur- rcnlly in the hip show. Several others, notably Benny McCoy of the Philadelphia Athletics, are in the armed forces, * * * Moreover, most of the minor league clubs the judge took off Detroit's party line arc not operating this season. The Tigers meanwhile have abandoned °al! farm operations. TYPHOONS BEAT JAYGEES, 49-39 AMES, (/TV--Leading all the way, the Iowa State Naval Typhoons carded a 49 to 39 basketball victory over Mason City junior college Wednesday night. The halftime score was 27-15. Wass, Mason City forward, Bob kept up a backboard drum-fire which yielded 20 points and brought him game-scoring honors.
