FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Majors in Crucial Meeting Feb. 3 . There seems to be quite a difference of opinion on the subject o whether the sports world needs a coordinator. One group says yes another no and another that it i too late now. Frankly, we're more inclined to agree with the latter school of thought. This is not the lime to appoint i a man to speak for sports. A year, or 2 years ago would have been the proper time. It was at that stage of the war when sports should have been looking to the future, making plans for the years ahead. It was (hen a coordinator could have been official spokesman. ~ ·Draft Calls "... Now, However, the government |" '.is no longer interested in hearing -;sports'"case. It's vice-versa, and ·the future of sports now depends '" : entirely-up on the necessary draft calls. Col. Larry MacPhail says he doesn't want the job, even if it 'vere offered to him. "There :^youldn't be anything to do anyway," says Larry. And he's right. How much sports are tn store for Some Moguls Reported Angry at Prick's Visit i ~* By JEBRT L1SKA . , Chicago, "(AP)--The joint meeting of the major leagues at New York on Feb. 3 is beginning to shape up as the most important baseball pow-wow since the late K. M. Landis Close Battle Expected for County Title was hired as commissioner in* 1921. On the surface, the manpower problem and whether the 1945 season will be delayed, curtailed or cancelled, apparently are the prime topics of discussion. But there's also a question of major league unity, or lack of it, due for a showdown. The question was posed the other day when National league President Ford Frick and Owner Clark Griffith of the Washington Senators held an apparently self- inspired conference with Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey. The interview seemingly caught Frick's 2 colleagues on the baseball advisory council -- American league , President Will Harridge and Leslie M. O'Connor^ Landis' former secretary -- pretty far o£f base. nuiv luuun spurts aie tu aiurc lur ^o^c. 1945 still cannot be determined. O'Connor's comment that Frick did not "act in any official capacity on behalf of baseball'' hardly could be described as knuckle- rapping, but it did hint that all is Perhaps you'll know definitely after the Feb. 3 meetings of the 'major leagues, when National League President Ford Frick will report oh his talk with Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, selective service director. ; One club owner said the game could not exist merely with 'teenagers, and he probably knows what he's talking about.

'·V-P in Kitchen While we're on the subject oE baseball, here's an amusing little St. Joseph's in the boys division and Swaledale in the girls section will- be defending their respective CeiTO Gordo county championships come next week. Nine boys clubs will be shooting to lift- the bauble from the Jo- hawks' head, while the Swaledale girls 'will be challenged by 7 other sextets. Games will be played every night next week on the Roosevelt court, with the exception of Friday. The-Friday games will be played at the Ventura high school gymnasium. Girls teams will be in action on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, while the boys compete ~on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and.Saturday. not cozy in what now is baseball's] The Johawks- are given no sanctum sanctorum. Baseball studiously has steered clear of asking wartime favors since Pearl Harbor and whatever the intent of the -Hershey interview, some admirers of the late Commissioner Landis may have a word or two to say on it at the Feb. 3 meeting when Frick plans to report on his Washington pil- occurred recently. Tom Greenwade, incident that Seems 'that Brooklyn Dodger scout, had a visitor at his home in Willard, Mo., a town of about 30 inhabitants. Tom said his visitor called from [j "up the line," at Springfield, Mo., but the telephone lines were "buz- zin' so bad" that day he couldn't make out the name. So Tom just told him to come ahead, and went out shooting meanwhile. Presently the visitor arrived. Tom's grandma, who is 87, met him on the front porch. "You a baseball man?" she said. '· "Not quite," he laughed. .-' "You got a mighty big car out 'there," she opined. "Belongs to a i-friehd of mine,"-.he-said. '.'What's | your name?" said Grandma. "Harry Truman," was the an- grimage. Frick has asserted that Gen. Hershey simply outlined the effects o£ current manpower rulings on baseball. Commissioner Landis was stoutly opposed to any meeting with government officials which might be interpreted as a bid for special treatment of personnel in wartime. The fact that Frick is credited in some quarters as having the inside track to the commissionership adds significance to his confab with Hershey. For the moment, the former newspaperman is baseball's unofficial spokesman more than ah even chance to retain their diadem, with the Mason City sophomores and Ventura the leading candidates to succeed the Blue and White. Swaledale is favored to keep the girls title. Four girls games will lead off the program Monday night, with SwaledaJe facing Thornton at 6 o'clock, followed in order by the Ventura-Meservey, St. Joseph's- Plymouth and Rock Falls - Rockwell tilts. Tuesday night Swale- dale and Meservey open the boys card at 7 o'clock, with St. Joe and Hockwell carded for 8:10 and Rock Falls and Ventura' at 9:20. |! swer.

So the vice-president of the United States sat in 'Greenwade's kitchen and ate a slice of Grandma's pie while she ivent out with the dinner bell and summoned Tom from his quail shooting. When the Dodger scout came in, he and Truman-chatted for. most of an hour about baseball and the state of the nation. Greenwade doesn't think there's anything unusual about having the vice president in his kitchen. "Shucks," he said, "him and me's been friends for years." Mutt and Jeff When a G-foot-nine individual and a little, stocky number came strolling into the Inman hotel at Champaign, 111., on the eve of the Notre Dame-Illinois game last season, more eyes were focused on Jhem than on (he Irish gridiron -herpes, who also were staying there. They had all arrived on the same train from Chicago. ; It wasn't long before word was passed along that the 2 individuals were George Mikan, the DePaul cage giant, and his coach, Ray Meyer. [."You see," explained a sports .writer familiar with the situation, "Meyer is so concerned over his star that he takes him along no matter where he goes--even out of the city. He's afraid that someone might grab him if he's left alone. Arid can you picture DePaul without-Mikan?" ' ' colleagues may also determine his' chances to succeed Landis. Whether the major league will decide specifically at the Feb. 3 meeting 'that they will suspend operations for the duration is conjectural. "Naturally, when we meet in New York we are* going to discuss such an important subject as the playing season," declared Harridge "But it is a problem that may definitely solve itself one way -or another even before the training trips." SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON New-York, (P)--Manager Luke Sewell of the Browns got his first lookr at the 1944 world series movies when his touring troupe showed them in Karachi, India . . . And it wasn't until then that Luke was convinced that Ziggy Sears hadn't given him a strictly National league decision on that close play at 3rd base . . .

Frank Pattee returned to his center position for the f i r s t time in 3 weeks and paced the scoring with 8 points. The' Johawks trailed in the first quarter, but caught up during; the second period to go ahead and keep a slim margin for the remainder of the contest. Thornton commanded an 8-2 margin at the conclusion of the initial stanza, but St. Joe turned on the heat in the second quarter to go ahead at the intermission, 12-11. The Johawks increased that by 1 point during the third quarter, and at the end led 15-13.. Wally Zallek followed Pattee in the scoring column by dumping in 6 points.

S. ban on horce racing. A United Press survey showed Friday that bookies are experiencing stonewall opposition on the collegiate front from midwest universities and several newspapers which have combined to cut ofl gamblers from "tip" sources. Unable to get information to : make up their prediction sheets, j many betting syndicates have i folded, while others have been forced to drastically curtail their operations. · ' Intent on blocking all organized gamblers' entrance into the collegiate sports field, athletic directors have issued instructions to their coaches, university officials and players N-O-T to give any information to anonymous callers. There is also a standing rule at these schools to throw into the waste basket any letter apparently from a betting house asking for "dope." "I never answer any information sheets sent here," K. L. (Tug) Wilson, Northwestern unverslly athletic director and secretary- treasurer of the N. C. A. A., said. "They go into the waste basket and I've instructed our publicity department, coaches and players not to answer any calls for information." The report was the same from Athletic Directors L. W.

Wherever there was a baseball game scheduled, Umpire Summers rolled up his G. I. pants, put on a mask and went to work behind the plate. Hubbell and Fitzsimmons each pitched an inning and then umpired the bases. The only favor Fitz demanded, in return for pitching, was that he be the leadoff man against Hub. "I'm normally a cleanup hitter," the Phil manager would explain to the delight of the soldiers, "but if I hit 4th, Hubbell won't be around by the time I come up . . . and I want one crack at him." One day while working a football same, Umpire Summers called a holding penalty on a G. I. tackle from Texas. "No, no," yelled the tackle. Bill insisted. "But I wasn't holding him," persisted the offender. "I just had my hand on my hip and he stuck his head in the hole . . .!"

Athletic Director Doug Mills o Illinois, Clevenger, Jennings and others said that wagering apparently has been nipped in the bud since there were no signs" of the situation getting out of hand or even noticeably increasing. Several o! the sports writers, including Stuhldreher and Clevenger, cited local newspapers for playing vital roles in the "gambling war" Jjy refusing to quote odds or give similar tips on events. In Chicago, where horse race gambling once was a $l,000,000-a- day business, wagering reportedly has fallen off as much as 90 per cent since the betting parlors have been unable to get started in the collegiate sports field.

WAIXIS Philadelphia, (IP) -- The most courageous athlete of 1944 is a composite of many persons--the little known and the great who came from every field of sport to give their lives in the service of their, country. For the first time in a decade, the Philadelphia Sporting Writers assocaition paid this unique annual tribute to a group. "A posthumous award to all courageous athletes who made the supreme sacrifice and whose patriotism, courage and sportsmanship were embodied in I.t. Robert Wilson, U. S. army air corps," read the inscription. The lieutenant, 22-year-old only son o£ Coach Jimmy Wilson of the Cincinnati R e d s and former manager of the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs, was killed last December on a volunteer mission over India. Jimmy said he just couldn't make it and said you would understand," Sports Editor Ed Pollock of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin told the more than 1,1000 members and guests. Pollock presented the award to Dick Spalding, lifelong friend of the lieutenant and a coach for the Cubs. Last year's most courageous athlete award went to Fete Gray, one- armed baseball player, who is now lardinals, was named the "most outstanding athlete of 1944." "I don't deserve it but I'll remember it as long as I live," he said. K14 813 KI3 931 781 WXI BO.', 849 441 'J15 387 ll: 843 813 258 239O Ule Guard wl(l £ Co.

(Happy) Chandler, (D.-Ky.), who said that if necessary, congress should "go to bat" for continuation of the game. Chandler, usually regarded as an administration spokesman, said he didn't believe the manpower situation was so tight that 400 or 500 men could not be spared to keep the game going. "These 400 or 500 players sure- RICKEY ASKS GAME CONTINUE Says Government Wants Sports to Go Ahead Bear Mountain, N. Y., U.R1-- President Branch Rickey of the Brooklyn Dodgers admonished baseball men Friday that the government expected them '.'to find the manpower to continue operations," or it would shut down the parks as it did the race tracks. "The government doesn't wan to stop us by indirection, I am sure, when it could so easily it directly," he said. "Therefore it is baseball's Job to continue a lone as possible. Losses will make no difference." "Whatever reasons the game had to exist through previous war time seasons still remain," he said. Turning specifically to the Dodgers' own manpower problems, Rickey left his listeners wondering how he could be so optimistic. He announced that Pitcher Ben Chapman had been reclassified 1-A by his Montgomery, Ala., draft board and that he probably would be inducted "within a week," Outfielder and Utility Infielder Luis Olmo, one of the top players during the 1944 season, has been placed in 1-A at his home in Puerto Rico and probably will not be around next season.

U.R--College football, which had to depend on freshmen and 4-F's for most ot its manpower last year, will get a major boost from students in reserve naval officer t r a i n i n g courses next season, if bills now pending in congress are passed, the Eastern Intercollegiate Athlete association was advised Friday. The legislation is designed to supplant the navy V-12 projrram, which has been in effect in many colleges for the past Z years and which has provided the top athletic manpower. Capt. A. S. Adams of the division of naval training, told dele- i.13.1] gates to the annual meeting of the ssociation that if congress passes he legislation, more than 24,000 :andidates will be sent to selected chools for training. The navy V-12 program is to be dropped on July 1, but the proposed N. R. O. T. C. would pro- ride considerably more manpower or the colleges than in the past, he said.
