EoGAZETTE MASON CITY, IOWA, APRIL 4 1931 CYCLONES REVISE '31 BASEBALL SCHEDULE 'FRISCO SEALS WIN 8, LOSE Xffciiment Strengthened for Big League on West Coast. NEW YORK, April 4, (ff)--If the results of the spring exhibition games played by major league baseball clubs mean anything of importance, the San Francisco Seals have a strong argument to back up the occasional talk of forming a third big league on the Pacific coast. Playing against three strong big league organizations, the Pittsburgh Pirates, Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers, San Francisco has won eight games and lost but two. Atlanta has done even better, winning all of its three games against major league clubs while Indianapolis has won four out of five to equal the Seals' average. These three clubs are the only exceptions to the general rule that the majors come out ahead. Another Pacific coast league club, " Oakland, is above the .500 mark in its spring games with three victories and two defeats, but nearly all the rest are far below that mark.

Borrows $45 and Goes to Notre Dame Takes Up Study of Science; Tries Football By W. 1£. WALTON. Written for Central Press. Rockne, like all red-blooded Am- rican boys, had his athletic heroes. A thoro-going Chicagoan, his Baseball Idols included Frank Chance, the "Peerless Leader" of .he Chicago Cubs; Big Ed Walsh, then the Chicago White Sox star Jitcher, but, probably most of all, iValter Eckersall, the famous "Eckie" who sprang from Chicago high school football stardom to brilliance on the Big Ten gridiron. Lilted "Eckie." The quick-witted, nimble play of the famous University of Chicago quarterback stirred the admiration of the youthful Knute. Here was genius, brain triumphing over brawn. Being physically small himself, Rockne was thrilled watching Eck;e outsmart the brawny boys of opposing elevens. Football .must be a ;ame for smart fellows as well as oeefy ones, Knute figured. Came Rockne's late teens and a decision to obtain a college education. He rather leaned toward the University of Illinois, the big state school down in Champagne. But Lwo of Rock's friends were planning to go to the University of Notre Dame, a small school somewhere in Indiana. They wanted Knute to go along. Rockne Makes Decision. It was a hard decision for Rockne to make. Most boys would have ·one on to the big- school. But not Rockne. Friends were friends, and he decided to stick with his pals. He borrowed 545 and took the train for South Bend. At Notre Dame Rockne plunged into -the study of chemistry. It was his ambition to become proficient in this science and he determined to know all there was about it. Tho he had to work his way thru school, Rock found time for athletics. He came out for football. CHAPIN O'NEIL 5 UPSETS LEADERS Games Leave Three Teams in Tie for Second Place in Straightaway.
