j j ' ' MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 22 · 1937 BE-GAZETTE ,S RTS LUTHER PLAYS TOUGH SCRAPS J3ig Ten, Big Six Nines to Oppose Norse in Card Set for Spring. DECOHAH--Coach S. SJ Eeque and his Luther college baseball squad are pointing towards · another stiff schedule, featuring six Big Ten games as .well as contests with · Iowa State and Minnesota arid. Iowa State conference teams. After about · a month's indoor practice the squad has been able to take to the outdoors this last week.' - · · ' ' · · · . · ' · . The season's opener will be a doubleheader against Gustavus Adolphus here on" April 12. This will be followed-by another twin bill against the:University of Wisconsin on April 17, at Luther. The first ro'ad trip rtakes the Norse .to Minneapolis, Minn.,-, where ;they play two games with the University of -Minnesota on -April 23 and 24, followed by a return game with GustavuV Adolphus .on April 26. The University of Iowa plays at Luther on April 28, while Northwestern university appears here on May 20. Iowa State comes here for two games May 28 and 29. Several conference teams, Simpson, Columbia and Upper Iowa will be played,'but as yet the schedule is not complete. , Only three" lettermen from'last year's squad have returned; Paul Gossman; third - baseman; Luther Olson, pitcher, and Les Forde, second baseman. Art ; "Grangaard, shortstop and captain-elect for this 1 season, has left school to join the Milwaukee club of the American association. Coach Reque has a squad of about 30 working oul daily and expects to find suitable replacements for the veterans lost. MELROSE SQUAD CHAMPION TEAM (Continued From Sport Pare) for the meet iwith 50 points. Hunt, who did the center jumping for Marshalltown, was -shifted to a forward position by the coaches who called him one of the most valuable all-around players in the field. · · - , · - . Fleming- Gets Nod. Don Fleming of East Sioux City got the call along with Thynne as the best centers in a tournament crowded with good pivot position players, · Thynne, invaluable under the basket, whipped in .46 points lor the champions, mostly from shots close in. He led the Marshalltown rout with 16 points. · Fleming, a big, powerful lad, was the real reason East Sioux City got into the semifinals. , He led the Sioux City scoring arid his defensive work was among the best in the tournament. Howard Irvine of Geneseo was another center the coaches liked for his performance against Melrose in the first round. He counted 20 points;- but his team lost 35 to 34. Keyser Falls Down. Don Keyser of Marshalltown, Keith Richards of Rolfe and Parks grabbed the guard positions on the all-stars. Keyser, tough and rangy, played faultlessly for three games, but he couldn't get going in the championship final against Melrose. - . - " . _ , , / Hickard jumped center ,lor Rolfe,. but the coaches decided he was too valuable to keep off their selections and. switched him back tq a\guard. He and Budolfson were tee big guns of the Rolfe artillery. - Parks, an Irish scrapper, was a terror in the backcourt, and got better as the tournament progressed. He constantly broke up Marshalltown's passing game, and he never was too busy defensively to take a little time for scoring activities. He collected 31 points during the tournament. WE'LL BE BACK, SAY BOBCAT FIVE MARSHALLTOWN, (#)--Marshalltown'S Bobcats, surprise victim of Melrose high school's triumphant march to (he state prep title, were back at their books Monday,' "But we'll be back in there next year, by golly," predicted Ben Trlckey, Bobcat guard.

MELROSE, (ff)'-- Tranquillty again settled over Haley's corner. The 420 residents ot this peaceful little Irish-American community resumed their normal leisure routine and rested weary throats which 24 hours earlier had roared a welcoming tribute to_its gallant little band of high school basketball players--13 strong--who.came marching triumphantly home with the state prep championship after defeating a favored Marshalltowii five, 35 to 17, in the finals of the state tournament at Des Moines Saturday night. . The entire village, augmented by several hundred persons from neighboring towns and led by the Albia High school and Chariton DO THEY NEED IT? · MELROSE, (Pi -- Melrose high school's state basketball champions may have a new gymnasium to start their 1938 campaign. . A petition was started Monday calling upon the members of the school board to ask a special election for the 'purpose of building a new,gym to replace the present 35 to 20 basketball floor located in a remodeled opera house. junior college bands--Melrose high is too small to collect sufficient musicians to organize a band--met Iowa's new cage-king outside of town and escorted them to Haley's corner--the town meeting place In front of the postofflce. The town's leading citizens took the specially-erected platform on bunting-bedecked Main street to heap verbal laurels upon the team which became the second Class B school'to ever win the prep title, and finally the "fighting Irish" themselves were called upon to say a few words. ' The village's formal tribute to its team--the banquets and trimmings that accompany the winning of a state championship-must wait until after Lent, but Mayor J. S. Cummins assured the boys that "we'll kill the fatted calf then.?' Monday, at every turn, the boys faced a barrage of questions from stay-at-homes and "replayed" the title-clinching game again' and again. Asked how. it felt to .be, state i cHampsj invariably" the answer was, "Boy, it's swell." . "You' just can't beat us Irish," added Walter O'Connor, captain of the championship crew. THINCLADS SET FOR NEW TRIAL Charles City High Out to Defend Title, Run in Heavy Schedule.

(NOTE: This Is another of a series on American league olnb prospects.) By FELIX R. McKNIGHT. SAN ANTONIO Tex., (#)-Manager Rogers Hornsby's complaint for his St. Louis Browns is: He needs winning pitche?s. v That although his holdout out- :ield star, Roy (Beau) Bell, voted :he American league's most valuable 1936 freshman after a .344 season at the plate, has returned, has the aging "Rajah" in a deeply conservative mood. He declined to Dredict anylhing except that the Brownies would finish in the American league. "At that," he mused, "our club should show improvement over last year. It looks like the Yankees and Detroit at the top with the :est of us about equal and me try- ng to finish the Browns, seventh last year, as high as possible. Need Pitching Baflly.' ' "We need pitching more than anything else--need it badly. Per- naps that trade with Cleveland ;hat brought Oral Hildebrand to us will help. We hope to have an improved staff." Hornsby listed as his mound staff: Jack Knott, Al Thomas, Elon Hogsett, Les Tietje, Oral Hildebrand, Russ Van Atta, Earl Caldwel), Lou Koupal, and three youngsters, Elton Walkup, Sig Jackucki and Howai-d Mills. Only Thomas did better than .500 with St. Louis last year. No rookie at 33 years, Koupal, up for another big league trial, had a fat year with Seattle in '36, hurling 23 triumphs against 11 defeats. First base will be well protected with Bommomley, Lusty hitter, and Harry Davis, a fair hitter from Toledo, scrapping for the post. Rookie Makes Battle. A swatting rooKle from Atlanta, erard Lipscomb, may give Tommy Carey a fight for second base. Bill Knickerbocker is a cinch ot ihortstop and Harlan Clift will handle third. Hornsby admits he" may slip into a few games and pronounced himself in tip-top condition. The veteran Hollle Helmsley vill he understudied behind .the plate by Chubby Tommy Heath rom Toronto. --The outfield 1 ^will"have 'Joe ^.bs- mik in left,- Sam West in center and Bell in right, with Ethan AI- en, Mel Mazzera and Ed.

Cast in "Lloyds of London" are Freddie Bartholomew, Madeleine Carroll, the late Sir Guy Standing, Tyrone Power, C. Aubrey Smith and numerous others. O * W PALACE REVIEWS "Nancy Steele Is Missing" is the best of a weak double feature program playing through Tuesday at the Palace. It is a prison melodrama in which are featured Victor Mc- Laglen, Poicr Lorre and Walter Connelly. McLaglen gives his greatest performance since "The Informer. June Lang and Robert Kent are the lovers in this depressing film. "Pcnrod ana Sam," the second of the two features, is hardly the same "Penrod and Sam" penned by Booth Tarkington, but despite the liberties taken by the script writers, will doubtless please juvenile audiences. * * * 'SWING HIGH, SWING LOW" IS ROMANTIC DRAMA Embellished with music and drama, "Swing High, Swing Low," which ends Monday at the Cecil, is a romantic piece of .celluloid costarring Carole Lombard and Fred "VlacMurray. For the first time Carole Lombard sings on the screen, and her lodner, MacMurray, plays a stzz- ing trumpet. There ate several uneful selections,, particularly "A Call to Arms," which'the two do ogether. "When you blow that horn It thrills me, to the marrow of my bones it chills me," sings VIlss Lombard to the accompaniment of MacMurray's muted trumpet. The plot? Boy meets gal. Boy veds gal. Boy becomes success, 'orgets gal. Gal leaves boy. Brok- en-hotted, boy drowns his sor- ·ow in liquids, hits the skids. Gal ·eturns to boy, who immediately returns to top. Love and unswevv- ng devotion again win out in the end. Worthy of mention for fine sup- porting bits are Charley Butterworth, Jean Dixon, Dorothy. Lain our and Harvey Stephens. Entertainment: , Fine.
