MONDAY, JANUARY 29, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Mohawks Fade /n Last Quarter, Lose Marshalltown Quintet Wins by 37-32 Score By ROGER ROSENBLUM Globe-Gazette Sports Editor · .'.v ·; Marshalltown--Folding up in the 4th quarter after holding a definite · advantage through the first 3 periods, JIasph City's Mohawks saw a 3rd quarter, 9 point lead vanish into thin air as Marshalltown came back fast to hand the ·· Cardinal and Black its 6th defeat of the campaign here Saturday, night', 37-32.. · ' From all appearances, Jlason* : . City ..was on its way to its 2nd victory of the weekend, after having thumped Webster City Friday n i g h t , 31-26. The Mohawks started out fast .and were never behind until only 3 minutes remained iii the contest. It was too - late then, for the BoBcats were hot . and.did.everything right. : Plays worked nicely, and the ·-. Cardinal and Black broke sharply for the basket to connect time and again during'.the. first-3 stanzas. ,-Had they continued to play-that brand ot ball for the last session, 'it wouldn't have been much of a a nice lead to work on, the Mohawks slowed ?ame, and that's where game. .'.. With however, - down the they made their mistake. Marshalltown, with 3 tall men able to 'j.get their share of the rebounds 'connected on a few long shots toward the end, then began tipping in the rebounds as the Mohawks appeared to tire somewhat. The tide turned the other way, and once the Bobcats pulled ahead in the last 2 minutes, the outcome was not in doubt. Before the Mo- · hawks realized what had happened, they saw a 30-30 tie turned into a 37-30 deficit. ·'·'._ The game, was played before a .wildly cheering, partisan capacity, ·house in the coliseum. The pitch "rari'so high'that at 1 point in the Luyeri 4th quarter the crowd would not Hurt, quiet down when Bill' Berner attempted a free throw. The pffi- cials settled.that by giving him a 2nd try, and \yhen the fans still 'did not comply with the request lor quiet; a third shot was |i : awarded, this time the Marshalltown plifyers appealed for silence, and they got it, too. Berner did I not connect on any of the tosses, I but Rutt managed a tip-in for 2 | points. From the beginning until the I Bob cats finally caught-up in the I last period," Mason City had. con- f.trol of the ball game. Before many S: minutes had elapsed in the 1st 1,quarter, 2 field goals and a free I'throw 'by Jerry- Gihthner plus a |V basketi by ,yerlyn_Rutt - sent the ·i Mohawks into a 7-(Tlead." JVfflard \ Shaw . and Ginthner traded baskets as the 1st quarter ended, |; keeping the Cardinal and Black 7 points ahead at 9-2. Coach Bnd Suter's lads played much the same type of driving .game through the.2nd period, and .although the lead at halftime was cut to 4 points at 16-12, the Mohawks still were in control of the game. Things looked even brighter in the 3rd session, and with half the period gone Mason Cily had gone into a 9-point, 22-13 lead. The 3rd quarter ended with the Mohawks still in command of a comfortable 5-point margin, 25-20. That's when the Mohawks tried to slow things down. The Bobcats began creeping up, and with approximately 3 3 ,A minutes remaining had cut the Mohawks' lead to a mere one point, 29-28. Meltvedt,- Bobcat substitute who scored 16 points, sank the bucket that put the winners ahead, 30-29. Rutt countered with a free throw to. tie things up at ,30-all, but from there on in Mason City fadcd- Meldvedt and Ole Olson counted in quick succession, and Olson and lUeldvcdt, in that order, sent free throws through the nets to give the Bobcats a 37-30 lead and put the game on ice. Gus DiMarco, who could not seem to connect on any of his shots, added a free throw to the Mohawk total, as did Ginthner as the frame ended, giving Marshalltown its 8th trinmph of the campaign, 37-32. Ginthner again led the "Mohawk scoring parade with 10 points, with Rutt counting 11. DiMarco's 3 and Johnson's 2 rounded out the scoring.

Each is eligible for competition in forthcoming National Collegiate Athletic association district eliminations, and any might be the recipient of a bid to the national invitational .tournament here in March, if their play from now on maintains the same high standard. Ohio State, which lost caste as defending champion in the Big Ten. after an early season upset loss to Purdue, now is favored to out distance, Iowa, the early leader which dropped a one point decision to Illinois.

Can Lose 2 or 3 Tilts Kansas City, (IP) -- If anyone' wants to count Iowa State's -basketball team out of the Big Six race Just because it lost its 2nd game, he can get an argument from Louis Menze, the Cyclones' coach. It's not that Menze Is boastful: the war he figures it, he's got some margin left on the losing side of the ledger. He thinks a team can lose 2 games, maybe 3 and still win the title. The Cyclones were pushed into the 2nd division Saturday night when Kansas walloped them .5035 at Lawtence. The defeat gave the lowans a 2-2 standing. "This race is going to be a wild scramble," Menze said. "I think the conference winner may lose 3 games before the season is over. "Nebraska loses in 2 overtimes to Oklahoma; Oklahoma beats Kansas in overtime, Kansas beats Missouri, Missouri beats us, we beat Kansas State by 29 points and Kansas State kicks the daylights out of Nebraska, 70 to 48." And so, asks the Cyclone coach, "Who's got the'best team?" It locks as if Kansas had it Saturday night, but Menze has a. good · "The World Series of 1944," a 30-minute sound film of the play- by-play highlights of the recent classic, will be shown in Mason City this week through the efforts of the Clausen-Worden post No. 101 of the American Legion, it was announced Monday by W. P. Tyler, head of the Legion's baseball committee here. The movie will include the important plays of every game'be- tween the St. Louis Cardinals, world champions, and the American league titleholders, the St. argument. The race has changed faster than a chorus girl between acts. Since the 6 teams shoved off Jan. 2, Oklahoma, Kansas, Kansas State and Iowa State all have been on top at one time or another. And this week's shuffle should bring' more changes, although Oklahoma still will have at least a tie for first Saturday night.

Larry MacPhail "officially" for the first time. 'The new president and general manager of the Bronx Bombers is on record as planning no changes in the personnel of the organization and says he will continue to operate the farm system "as is" but his background indicates several policy chapges may be expected. ., In almost 25 years operation tinder Barrow the Yanks stood soundly upon baseball itself as the only important factor in drawing fans while MacFhall at Cincinnati and Brooklyn went in heavily for circus frills and hippodrome effects in addition to high-priced player talent. Barrow,.a powerful character in every way despite his 76 years, represents the old order. It is not likely he could continue long as chairman of the board of directors in a subordinate position to MacPhail who has replaced him as real "boss" of the club, despite Larry's insistence he stay "as long as he getting any fresher.
