MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 22 · 1937 NINE FORT DODGE BOWLER'S 814 GETS LEAD OUT of the PRESSBOX ·MMBy Al Mitchell---- E-GAZETTE 'S SE Apparently gathering some momentum . . . a new high school state athletic association . . . designed to displace, eventually, the present governing body of Iowa high school sports . . . is taking form. Groundwork for the new group was laid- at a meeting in Des Moines Saturday at which approximately 50 superintendents were reported in attendance. Paul James . . . attorney for the new organization . . . said: ' "We are simply perfecting a democratic organization of the ' schools." e * * James charged that "we have not had freedom of speech, freedom of action and freedom to criticize without fear of reprisal in form of discrimination." Although he mentioned no personalities -r . . he indicated his comment was directed at George A. Brown, executive. secretary of the present high school athletic association who has been under fire for some time by one faction in the .state. * * * Amos C. Lee . . . superintendent of Manning's schools, reported as the temporary chairman of the new organization. Lee said Saturday that "A num- ter of counties already are definitely committed to come into the new organization." He added: "There are definitely a. great number of schools past the point of cpwerins before the present administration." Lee said there are at least 150 schools now interested in the new group. * * * K. C. Van Orden . . . Maplelon superintendent and member of the present athletic board who has been at odds with Secretary Brown attended the meeting Saturday. · He refused to comment,, however . . . on the. formation of the hew association. Secretary Brown refused to take the new group seriously. "It is similar to a dozen movements in the last 20 years . ; . which all came to nothing," Brown said.' * * * As one who has written and said a good many things about Secretary Brown . . . and the apparent political policies which .Ii a v e --caused .-^rjction over high school, athletics for several years, between schools, state hoard, newspapers and writers . . . I can't decide whether the new move is a good one. It's somewhat of a relief to find that there are a few schools in Iowa ready to "stick their necks out" over the athletic board situation . . ..without stopping to think that a good many heads have been lopped off in the last few seasons . . . by, the way, Attorney Paul James was counsel for Supt. R. D. Noble o£ McGregor, who brought suit charging fraud in the last northeast Iowa district election . . . which sent Supt. Forrest J. Moore o£ New Hampton into the state board.

BUTLER FIELDHOUSE, INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., (UP)--Glenn Cunningham, the world record holder, bowed to a fellow Kansan, Archie San Romani of Kansas State Teachers college, Emporia, Saturday night in a special mile race climaxing the fifth renewal of Butler university's annual indoor relays. The diminutive San Romani led Cunningham from the 'start and turned in a time of four minutes, was brought reinstated when the action was dropped for lack of funds, although it was denied in some quarters that the withdrawal of the suit had anything to do with the reinstatement.

Cracks World Record INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., (UP) --Mel Walker, Ohio jumping star, Saturday established a new world's indoor record when he'cleared the bar at 6 feet, 9%' inches in the fifth Butler relays. The new mark tied the world's outdoor record for the event. Walker's jump was half an inch better than the mark Ed Burke, Marquette, established at the national A. A. U. meet in New York City recently. 21-.4 seconds, as compared to the record of tour minutes, 6.7 seconds Cunningham set in 1935. As the gun sounded signalling the final lap of the tenth of a mile lack, Cunningham mad.e a desperate bid to overhall his fleet-footed rival but finished two yards behind. University of ' Michigan's Wolverines, Big Ten indoor titleholders, won, their fourth consecutive team championship by rolling up 49 points. Ohio State was sec- ond~wi£h 31 points. The college title went to Kansas State Teachers college of Pittsburgh, Kansas with a total of 2' points. Butler, the host, placed second in the college division with 24 points.

The council, meeting secretly vith Harrison late Saturday after .aving heard Sutherland's side of he story nearly two weeks ago, eluctantly accepted the resigna- ion. Until a successor to Harrison s named, the athletic council gave "iutherland full control over Pitt's ootball policies. Battled Since Rose Bowl. The "feud" between Sutherland and Harrison, simmering for some ime, came to a boil last New Year's night after the Panthers lad defeated the University of Vashington in the Rose Bowl. Sutherland reportedly repri- nanded Harrison for his alleged 'shoddy" treatment of the football ilayers and provided money from lis own pockets so the players vould ' have "spending money" vhile celebrating their first Rose Bowl victory. Following the reprimand, Harison was quoted as telling Sum- VERN MORPHEW GETS SHARE OF SECOND RANKING 814 Score Leads Keglers as First Week-End Is Over in Annual Event.

Sutherland's complaint centered on the lack of harmony within D itt's athletic department, failure :o accord proper treatment to the football players and refusal to al- ow him (Sutherland) to express lis-views on matters of policy such as scheduling of games and appointment of coaches. Harrison, in his letter of resignation, said the problem was one of personalities. "It is 'not for me' to pass oh the merit of either^ side," he wrote. "But this I know: Such a situation should, under no circumstances, exist in any department in the university.

Klomp provided Iowa with its biggest ring upset by shading the Ol- tuma heavyweight here Thursday night in a.six round match. O'Dell will resume training at Chicago in preparation for the tentative match. Eddie Hart, his manager, and Mike Cantwell, his trainer, will have charge of O'Dell's training in Chicago. Cantwell hinted strongly that O'Dell was not in condition following the Klomp bout in Mason City. "This will teach O'Dell a lesson--that he has to be in condition for fighting," the trainer told a reporter. O'Dell lost to Klomp chiefly because he was bewildered at the Lime Springs light heavyweight's unorthodox southpaw stance and was too puzzled to do anything about it. Klomp was outweighed 27 pounds.

By SID FEDEIl NEW YORK, (/P)--Max Schmel- ng sewed another patch on the icavyweight crazy quilt Monday .'ith a $350,000 offer for Cham- iion Jim Braddock to defend his ille in Berlin, but for all the stir t created among those concerned, t might as well have been 50 cents. The champion, -through his manager, Joe Gould, turned down '.he offer because it wasn't up to set minimum of lis previously $400,000. Madison Square Garden, which vas offered $50,000 by Schmeling .0 release the fight lo Germany nstead of promoting it here on June 3, cold-shouldered the proposition pending completion oC its lans for legal action against the 3raddock-Joe Louis .bout in Chicago. By Tuesday or Else. Schmeling accompanied his otter with an ultimatum lo both Braddock and the Garden. "Either it is accepted by Tuesday," he stated through his American representative, Joe Jacobs, 'or it will be withdrawn. In that case, we will go into training for the June 3 fight, and will stand on our contract rights." The new offer, made by Schmeling on benalf of the Deutsche Halle A. C. of Berlin, was $100,000 more than the first guarantee offered when Der Moxie arrived from Gel-many. The money would be deposited in any bank outside of Germany or the United Stales stipulated by Braddock, and would be free of tax in Germany. Government Frees Cash. Schmeling explained the German government has no interest in the fight, and that its only concern is in permitting the guarantee money to leave the country tax free. Gould said that in addition to $'100,000, the litleholder would insist on an American referee and an English judge. "Schmeling will also have to straighten things out with the garden and Promoter Mike Jacobs so there will be no legal complications, added. The its policy to have have nothing to do with the matter until its court action is set. Garden Holds Contracts. The garden holds contracts of both Schmeling and Braddock for the June 3 fight. After those contracts were signed, Braddock disregarded them and signed to meet Louis in Chicago late in June. Col. John Reed Kilpatriclc refused comment on Schmeling's latest RED RUFFING AT TOP OF REDUCED HOLDOUT RANKS Signing of Dizzy Dean and Lou Gehrig Big Relief to Managers. NEW YORK, (UP)--Baseball's holdout ranks thinned down to six players Sunday as all but three major league clubs either started or continued spring training competition. The American league has only two players unsigned while there are four in the National. Signing of Lou Gehrig of tlie Yankees and the St. Louis Cardinals' Dizzy Dean this week eased the holdout situation. Most important unsigned player is Charley (Red) Ruffing o£ the world champion Yankees. Ruffing, lone holdout on a Yank list that numbered 10 on March 1, wants $10,000. He has been offered $15,000. Ruffing, a good batsman, wants the extra thousand as remuneration for duties performed as a pinch-hitter. Col. Jacob Huppert, Yankee owner, objects to such an arrangement. Four Nationals Unsigned. The other American league holdout is young Billy Sullivan, Cleveland Indian third string catcher who thinks he is entitled to a raise. Those still unsigned in the senior circuit are Paul Waner, Pittsburgh Pirate outfielder; Babe Herman, Cincinnati Red outfielder; Buck Jordan, Boston first baseman, and Dolph Camilli, Philadelphia first baseman. Waner is in Sarasota, Fla., holding out for $500 more than he has been offered. Herman received about $11,000 last year and wants more. The Reds say he won't be with the club this year and that they are trying to trade him. Herman dickered with the White Sox and almost sold himself. The Reds have told him he can arrange his own trade. But the deal fell through when the Heds asked too much for him, Herman claims. Wants 54,000 Moro. the champion's manager garden, however, held to Jordan is holding out for $12,000. He received $8,000 last year. Camilli wants $7,500. His main reason for holding out, it is said, is that he hopes the Phils, rather than meet his price, will trade htm to tin Giants, who could use a first baseman of his caliber. Holdouts . were dealt a severe blow by President Bill Harridge of the American league last week. He forbade managers on his circuit to allow holdout players to work out with other clubs. His action came when Dean, who still was unsigned, worked out one day with the Boston Red Sox. move except to say the garden's suit is not yet ready for court filing. If the Berlin deal falls through, Gould said, Braddock will follow his schedule ot opening his Wisconsin training camp in about 10 days to start conditioning for the Louis fight. icu IS!) 171 Weber, Charles Cils-- Fresh Made From Fresh Cream PLAN PLAYOFF.
