FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1335 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE YANKS and GIANTS-To Top Eastern Choices OUT of the PRESSBOX BY AL MITCHELL Back to the Top? A strikingly faithful resemblance to the 1938 baseball team which brought the University of Iowa its first Big Ten title share in 11 seasons is borne by the Hawkey e nine of 1939. The same hard -hitting outfield, the infield intact except for the third baseman, and only two regulars missing from the pitching staff . , . there's a situation that buoys up Hawkeye hopes. Because they proved themselves in the fire o£ the 1933 campaign, Coach Otto Vogel plans to rise or fall with the veterans, despite the presence of several first class recruits. There is no reason to suppose that Iowa will not be a championship contender . . . with a share of the breaks. But Coach Vogel warns that the Big Ten as a whole Will be tougher' than last season and that some of the baseball luck which favored Iowa in close games a year ago easily can move the other way. * * » The all-star outfield has Co- Captains Arthur Manush, left field, and William Vogt, centerfield ... as well as Jimmy George, the junior right fielder who was voted the Big Ten's most valuable player at the end of his sophomore season. These men ranked one-tivo- three in hitting for all games, led by George with .375 and the high mark of 25 runs batted in. First line of defense has Elmer Bratten, a senior, at first base for the third season; Erwin Prasse, the three-sport star and 1939 football captain, at second . . . and Andy Kantor, a smart junior, at shortstop. These men were full-time regulars last season and all fielded well. At the third base spot left vacant by the graduation of Eddie Kadell, a sophomore, Frank Kocur, is a leading candidate. * « « The pitching staff has three letter men, Harold Haub, light- '·- -ider, who won two of five conference starts in 1938; Kenneth Reid, a strong lefthander who has fine potentialities but who worked in only five games of two seasons because of a sore arm . . . and Fred Hoherhorst, used mostly as a relief hurler last year but now ready for his regular turn. Other pitchers include .Keith Wymore, Ted Frese and James .pook who had slight experience a \year ago, and such sophomores as Robert Stastny, Wayne Hinrichs, Rex Harrington, John Kemp and Richard Heldridge. It's a tossup as to which, if any, will come through. * 3 * Coach Otto Vogel, in his fifteenth season as Iowa coach, will send his team through a 25-game schedule between April 3 and June 3. Hawkeyes will meet 13 different opponents of eight states, play 15 of the first 17 games away Irom home, but finish with eight straight home contests. A' dozen conference games are listed. * c s PICKUP: Down south they're saying that Bob Feller has the fastest- ball since Walter Johnson . . . and the fastest auto since Ralph De Palma. Iowa Baseball Nine Ready to Tour With Captain on Sideline IOWA CITY, (U.B-- The University of Iowa baseball team will leave Saturday on its annual southern training trip. There is a possibility that Co- Captain Art Manush, Burlington may be unable to make the trip because of an injured foot which required hospital treatment this week. The Hawkeyes will open a three game series against Millsaps at Ruston, La., Monday. Four more ·games with southern foes will complete the schedule. Coach Otto Vogel has been forced to ease up on his players this week because of cold weather. Veterans are back for every position except first base but the team suffered' a serious loss through the graduation ot Matt Faber, whose pitching last year was partly responsible for Iowa's winning a share in the Big Ten ti- BEES STING BEARS BRADENTON, Fla..

Judy Plans to Appear Tuesday at Club's Meeting JUDY COLO WORRIES CYCLONE BOSS Inexperienced Squad Lists Two North Iowa Players for Opener AMES -- "Yes, I'm moaning" Coach LeHoy Timm of the Iowa State college baseball team admitted Friday. "Our No. 1 worries right now are the weather and inexperience." Snow covered the diamond as Timm surveyed his Cyclone roster for a possible lineup to send on the field against Simpson college here next Friday. The Iowa State diamond men have been outdoors for only a half-dozen drills, not enough to give the rookies the experience they need. Six Cyclone srjuadmen are letter winners, but even so, Iowa State fans will see new faces at seven oi the nine positions. Either foilr or five sophomores will start against Simpson, anil several of the veterans have shifted assignments. Capt. Othmar Pudenz has been shifted from first lo shortstop Floyd WhiUord, 1936 regular, is back in schaol and will be available at the initial sack. Everett Kischex-, center fielder, is the other veteran, but he might be used at second base. ··' Iowa State has the bulk of its experience at the most vital position, pitching, but even then lacks one real outstanding hurler which is such an asset in college ball. Best of the sophomores to date have been John Thompson, catcher; Bob Benedict, outfielder; Fred Gordon and Doug Strohbehn, infielders, and Don Gillam, pitcher and outfielder. All of these men may be regulars. CLEAR LAKE--Safety for the sportsman will be discussed here Tuesday night by a former · Clear Lake man, Wayne M.

I GOLF AGES TURN SOFTER, SHY OUT OF RAINY MEETS Tourneys of Seasons Past Went on Without Thought for Weather By HENRY McLEMORE United Press Staff Correspondent AUGUSTA, Ga., U.R) -- The golfers are softening up. turning sissies. They can't take it any more. A little wind and rain and they scurry {or the club house pull down the shades and begin playing bridge, dominoes, mah Jong and parches!. The rains came here Thursday just as play was about to start in the first round of the Masters' invitation tournament, and the officials, fearing the pjayers would .melt, ordered a postponement. In the club house, safe from the "fierce" rain that not even your most maidenly aunt would have minded the boys admitted times had changed. Not so many years ago tournaments went through on schedule, and nothing the elements had to offer was enough to force a halt. B o b b y Jones, comfortably tucked away on a deep sofa, recalled, with a slight shudder, the qualifying rounds of the National Amateur at Brooklnne in 1922. LIKE ATLANTIC SURF "What a rain that was," Bob said. "It was like playing in the sur£ of. the Atlantic. We didn't have anything but sand tees in those days, and it was impossible to tee up your ball. Before you could get set to hit the ball, the sand was washed away, and I did all my putting with a mashie, the greens were so deep with water. I never will forget Max Marston ·in that tournament. Max used a towel for a tee the whole time." "What about the open at Winged Foot in 1929?" asked Billie Burke. "That was mess oE rain for you. The only fellow to shoot a decent score the opening day was George von Elm. He stripped down to pants and shoes, and got around in 70. t remember that I got so mad when I four-putted from 10 feet on .the final green that I took my ball and threw it on the green as hard as I could and walked off. That ball must have gone in the ground a foot and maybe it's there yet for all I-know." "You must think you've seen bad weather, Billie," Gene Sarazen chimed in. "You should have been with me, at Sandwich in 1934 for the British open. The first day it did everything that the heavens ran do, winding up with a hail storm to end all hail storms. Nobody thought of a postponement, though, and when I managed to get to the first tee who do you think my playing partner was? A Mister Horace Fairweather! A Frenchman was playing right ahead of us and after he had taken six putts on the first green, which was two inches deep in hail, he let loose a string of oaths, jumped up and down live or six times, and then buried his putter up to the Handle in the green. Then he calmly walked away and out of the tournament." "'TWASN'T NOTI1IN'" Jimmy Demaret and Hency Picard came up to say that neither Jones nor Burke nor Sarazen had seen any really bad weather unless they had played in the San Francisco match play open in iy37. "It was blowing 60 miles an hour." DeMai-et said. "Sixty nothing," snorted Picard. "H was'blowing all of 75. Durn if it didn't blow so hard it blew a full grown whale right up on the beach. Byron Nelson opened his umbrella and before he could let it loose he had been carried a hundred yards. And I saw Harry Cooper, on a par three hole, hit into the wind with his driver and when he walked off the drive it had gone exactly 50 yards."

Luther Names Captains for '3940, Honors Stan Kvam Ed Bock Wallops Handball Hard as Foes of Gridiron AMES -- Coach Ed Bock at Iowa State" is becoming as much a marked man on the handball court as he was on the gridiron last fall. The Cyclone All-American guard is equally dangerous equipped only with a hard rubber handball, his fellow athletic staff members will vouch. Three weeks ago one o£ Bock's slices sent the ball bouncing off the eye of Beryl Taylor, Iowa State trainer. This week LeRoy Timm, Cyclone oaseball and backfield coach, became the second black-eye victim of Bock's spirited handball play.
