DES MOINES, (/P) -- The Iowa supreme court, in a sweeping opinion Tuesday, wiped out scores of hunting and fishing regulations established by the state conservation commission. The court's decision ruled that a person can not be punished by fine or imprisonment for violation of such regulations, some of which establish closed seasons on game and prescribe the methods by which fish and game may be taken. Nullification o£ the regulations was based on the constitutional principle that the legislature cannot delegate legislative power to boards and commissions. Seven Justices Concur. Seven justices concurred in the opinion which said: "It is our holding that the attempted delegation o£ authority to the state conservation commission to adopt and promulgate rules and make violation of them crimes punishable as misdemeanors is a violation o£ the constitutional provision and is wholly void. "And we hold further that such rules and regulations so adopted and published by the state conservation commission are without authority." The court held that Henry County District Judge Oscar Hale ruled correctly when he sustained motions by A. S. Van Trump, who was fined $50 in a justice of the peace .court on a charge of fishing with illegal device -- a hoopriet. Added Charges Filed. Additional charges of fishing without a license and possession of a catfish in a closed season were filed against him in the district court. ' Van Trump demurred to all three charges and Judge Hale sustained his motions claiming there were no grounds for accusing him of fishing with illegal devices and possession of a cattish out of season. Judge Kale's ruling was based on a contention that the regulations of the state conservation commission, on which Van Trump was fined, were illegal. \ · Brings Appeal. The slate appealed to the supreme court in an ·attempt to uphold the validity of the conservation commission's regulations, but the tribunal held the delegation of power to the commission was unconstitutional. · The opinion was written by Justice John W. Anderson of Sioux City and concurred in by six others. Two justices did not take part in the case. TheSchedule TUESDAY, March 16 , At Y. M. C. A.--City Softball meeting, 7:30.

Mike Klomp began to taper off in his workouts Tuesday as fight time approached for his battle with Ralph O'Dell, the promising young heavyweight sensation from Ottumwa. In his final really strenuous session in the gym Monday, however, the Lime Springs blond appeared to be in good'physical condition as he shadow boxed for t h r e e rounds, pummeled Leo O'Gorman three more rounds in a sparring session, did two cantos of rope skipping, worked on the heavy bag, on the rowing machine and pulled the weights. O'Gorman had large red welts on his shoulder where Mike had landed some stiff rights during the sparring session. Klomp has been concentrating on the development of his right in his gym workouts. Also sparring with the O'Dell opponent has been Gerald "Irish" Haggerty, stocky Mason City ring veteran. O'Dell is expected to arrive in Mason City Wednesday accompanied by his retinue.

BAER GOOD YET, SAYS MAX BAER Neither of England's Aces Shows Mark After Tilt for Heavy Title. LONDON, (/P)--Maxie Baer decided Tuesday he could take Tommy Farr, the new heavyweight champion of Great Britain and the empire, in his stride April 15 and then meet Germany's Walter Neusel. "I guess I ain't worrying," said Baer at the ringside last night when Farr won a 15 round decision over Ben Foord, the South African who had held the empire title. Baer made statements to the press, to friends and acquaintances and everybody within hearing. "Neither of those guys lets them come right Irom the shoulder and that's when they hurt real'bad," said Max. He watched Foord and Farr come out of the ring and commented that neither of them showed a mark, although Foord's nose bled freely during the bout. "Now listen, both of those boys have white -bodies still," he commented, explaining that if either had been really hitting their chests would have been red ag beets. Baer's opinion was backed up by "The Sporting Life," which said the contest was "one o£ the poorest championship fights staged in this country for a long time."

Almost Every Job Clinched by Boys Who Waltzed . Past Giants in '36. (NOTE: This is another of a series outlining major league pennant prospects.) By PAUL MICKELSON · ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., (If)-Joe McCarthy is standing pat with his New York Yankees. The powerhouse club that tore .he A m e r i c a n league apart, smashed out 182 hoineruns, scored J95 runs and cake walked home with the pennant by 19 ',· games in 1936 is good enough in the shrewd McCarthy books. Except for a battle between Al- 'in Powell, Myril Hoag and Ernie Koy, a big rookie from the Ne- ,vark farm, virtually every posi- :ion on the world's championship team appears to be clinched by :he boys who shattered records as they went to town last season. McCarthy is in the market for Jood pitchers, but chances arc that his old staff, best in the league on earned run basis in 1936, will do all the firing. Why Clean House? "When a team wins the pennant in a walk and then the world series I can't see much need of any wholesale house cleaning, can you?"/ asked McCarthy. "But if any of these rookies show me something better than we've got, why we'll be glad to see them out there." Personally, I believe the Yankees look too good to be true on paper. They should win the flag again but the trouble is last year's clippings don't count. Searching for an Achilles heel on the ball club, the spotlight falls on 33 year old Tony Lazzcri, who operates at second base. Tony surprised everyone by lasting the entire 1936 season but whether he can go through another is probably the only question that confronts the Yankees. Without Tony working second, supplying advice and steadying the infield, the world's champs undoubtedly would have trouble. Right now, Tony looks as if he's gooc for another..two,or .three years-al least and ""McCarthy certainly hopes so. Holdouts Are Okay. No one is figuring without First Baseman Lou Gehrig and Pitcher Red Rutting. The two holdout artists are sure to line up by the lime the pennant race opens, giving the Yankees the same lineup that started the final world series game--Crosetti, Rolfe, Oehrig, DiMaggio, Dickey, Selkirk, Powell Red Ruffing, American Loop's Boss to Watch Detroit Tiger Club Says Bengals Will Take* Lots of Holding in Pennant Race. By EAUL HILUGAN CHICAGO, (/PJ--William Harridge isn't going to try picking the American league pennant winner this season but he climbed far enough out on the limb Tuesday to say the Detroit Tiger "is going to take a lot o£ holding." Harridge, league president, is just back from a Florida vacation, but he didn't visit 11 single junior circuit spring camp or see any American league clubs in action. He had a pretty good source, however, for his information on the Bengals--Walter O. Briggs, Detroit owner.. Detroit Boss Happy. "I talked to Mr. Briggs at Miami Beach, 31 Harridge said, "and he's all enthused about Detroit's chances. So am I. With H a n k ' Greenberg back--and I've been iold he's in great shape with his njured wrist as strong as ever-the Tigers are certain to make this year's race a tight one. "Mickey Cochrane, fully recovered from his illness, is certain to give the team the spirit it showed in winning in 1934 and 1935, and I believe the Tigers will be at least one club that won't permit any large gap between second place and first, where Detroit and New York finished last season." No First Choices? The league prexy isn't going to try naming the ultimate pennant winner. He's cured of that. Last season, he recalled, he visited every American league club at spring camp and came away with the impression that the Yankees would be lucky to finish in the first division. "Last year we had a good season but I think this one coming will be even better," Harridge continued. "For one thing, I believe Detroit will furnish plenty of punch. Boston, Cleveland and Washington will be belter, as will practically every club in the league." PLAYERS FACE COURT TUSSLE 37 to Compete for Honors in Three Y Handball Tournaments. Thirty-seven handball players have signed to compete in the All-Y tournament getting under way this week at the local-court, it was announced Tuesday by Physical Director Herb Templin.

Monte Pearson and Johnny Murphy, a right hander who looks better every day, shape up as the starting pitchers with Pat Malone, Bump Hadley and Johnny Broacn set as spot pitchers. Kemp Wicker and Vito Tamuh's are waging a spirited duel for a mound job and may do. Frank Makosky, big right hander who won 17 for Oakland, has a good fork ball and is likely to be used as a "rally buster." Though the infield is set with Don Heffner and John Saltzgavcr as utility men, and the center and right field jobs are snared by the sensational DiMaggio and Selkirk, the tussle for left field may be a great one. Hoagr Buck Again. Hoag was playing the best bal! of his. career last summer when he bumped into DiMaggio and suffered a skull concussion. He's back in fine fettle this year and is sure to give Powell a run. Koy prob- (Cnnlinuti! an Ntxl 3'aice) St. joe Contribs to Equip League Field ST. JOSEPH, Mo..
