Coaches of the all-slaters will also be guests of the association of which the Mason City Globe-Gazette and 25 other leading Iowa afternoon daily newspapers are members. A big program, which will be announced in the Globe-Gazette later this week, has been arranged by the association in co-operation with the university and several Iowa City civic organizations.

A. luncheon, high spot of thp meeting, has been arranged for Saturday noon. Three Types of Trout m Experiment Use IOWA CITY--The best types of fishways, the passages in-dams for the benefit of traveling fish, are being determined in the University of Iowa's hydraulics laboratory and the fish themselves are co-operating.

The fish are encouraged (o swim up and down the fishways While observers note the efficiency It is expected that full-size fish- ways will be installed in the laboratory's dam and operated during the spring fish run. The project, under way.for more than a year, is being carried on in co-operation with the Iowa Conservation commission. College professors are usually absent-minded ...

I fino roH-your.own d c *rclte» la ·"? pockctlia of Prince Albtrt E ALBERT THEHATIcmAl JOY SMOKE VETS WILL PLAY TOUGH TO SHOVE BRONX BOYS HIGH American League Has Stronger Look Through Early Spring Session By GAYLE TALBOT Associated Press Sports Writer ATLANTA M 1 )--Tile baseball teams, brown and lull of orange juice, are about ready to break camp and head back north, so now is as good as any to have a look at the general situation. First, it seems apparent after visiting .11 teams in-Florida and Louisiana that the American league has, if anything, increased its superiority over the National league as a whole, granting for the sake of argument that it is for the time being a stronger circuit. The Yankees are bound to be better, even with Lou Gehrig playing on u dime at first base and the only thing that might keep them from winning their fourth world championship would be for something to happen to either Lefty Gomez or Red Huffing, or both. They were making bets around St. Petersburg, incidentally, that Gehrig would be replaced by Babe Dablgren before the season ends Sox, Tigers Look Tough Both the Boston Red Sox, who finished second to the Yanks last year, anrf the Detroit Tigers, who finished a fast-coming fourth, appear to have strengthened, too, and my guess is they will fight it out for second place this time. The Sox have a potential star in their rookie outfielder, Ted Williams, while the Tigers will be sounder at shortstop and third- base and might have great pitching if Schoolboy Ro\ve and Fred Hutchinson both. come through. Cleveland's fortunes admittedly rest in the right'arm of Johnny Allen, who had an elbow operation during the winter. If he doesn't make a 'comeback they could even drop out ot the first division. None of the other four American league clubs, from what I've seen and heard, has made any important improvement, though the Washington Senators could make it tough on the leaders if Bucky Harris should find himself a starling pitcher among all those Cubans. Cincinnati Hot Club Cincinnati is the hot club in the National league, the only one that has token on a load of strength and .already is making gestures at the,pennant. Will McKechnie'^ fine young outfit vaulted from last place in 1937 to fourth last year, and there's no law that says they can't jump four more notches this time. There is the sort of team that might take charge of its league for several years and give the Yankees a real scrap in the world series, to boot. Some observers think the Reds lack "balance." All I i;now is they have good fielding, fine hitting and a remarkable collection of pitchers, now that Lefty Grissom is back in form. Also they have the pennant bug. Maybe I wouldn't be so high on the Reds i£ there were any real reason to believe that their chief rivals will be bettter than last year, or even as good. The feeling around the south is that the Chicago Cubs, last year's champions, stripped their gears when they let Bill Jurges go to the Giants. Not Even First Division . One pretty competent baseball man offered to bet, given the proper odds, that the Cubs wouldn't finish in the first division Pittshurgh's veteran club probably had its last big chance when it blew the flag in the closing days of the 1938 race after holding what looked like a safe lead. A team that undergoes such an experience seldom snaps back. The Giants will have to be considered a third-place team, at best, until it is seen for sure that Hubbell and Schumacher can win again. So what's to keep the Reds out of there, providing they get their share of the breaks and do not lose their key men by illness or injury? If any of last year's leaders drops out ot the first division, the Boston Bees are the logical team to move up. It looks like they might have two .300 hitters in their lineup this season, an increase of one. Giants Open Series With Dallas Steers DALLAS. Tex., (U.PJ--The New York Giants came here Tuesday for the first of a two-game series against the Dallas Steers of the Texas league. The game began seven-inning stretches for the Giant pitchers, who have worked no more than four frames at a time previously. Slim Melton or Harry Gumbert were expected to get the first call. Nats Rained Out of Kansas City Tussle TAMPA, Fla., fJ.R)--The Washington Senators, rained out of a scheduled game with the Kansas City Blues at Haines City Monday journeyed to St. Petersburg to meet the St. Louis Cardinals in an exhibition game. Jimmy Deshong and Pete Ap- plfiton were scheduled to take the mound against the Cards. Hurler Monte Weaver was sold Monday to the Boston Red Sox. Vega f : . Ziegler / Cavanaugh g DeGregorio fi .

Coaches Ask Change to'Halt Late Fouls CHICAGO, (U.R)--National Collegiate association basketball coaches asked their rules ctim- mittee Tuesday to approve a rule change to halt intentional fouls. Delegates to the association's annual convention recommended the modification during their three- day session which ended Monday. Since rulemakers eliminated the center jump, coaches have noted trailing teams making deliberate fouls to gain possession of the ball after free throws. The proposed change would permit the fouled team to chose between attempting a free throw and taking the ball out of bounds. added co with strong North !owa o p p o n e t s . fr ° m Ie " to rigllt above .
