Friday, March 17, 19M 9 . MASON CITY GLOBE-GA/ETTE the b a c k o£ their youngsters (they're ROGER ROSENM.UM EDITOR'S NOTE: In order to be fair and present both sides of an argument whenever possible, we're glad to devote this space to varying opinions ou controversial issues. A recent column on officiating did leave room for debate. Today's column is written by Bud Suter. coach uf the Mason City basketball team, who will give his views on the subject of officiating. 'I am v.Tiliug Ihis article, more or less as a rebuttal for what the sports editor wrote in regard to tournament officiating and is just my personal idea on the controversial subject. I'd like to know what your ideas on the subject are. We coach our boys lo play an aggressive type of basketball. We do" this for two reasons: 1. We lirmly believe that's the type of basketball the Mohawk fans pre- ler and 2. it's our interpretation of the only way o£ coaching the game. Now herein is the fallacy of the "quick whistle" and I believe tile two reasons they are called as they are. 1. Officials are in mortal fear of the game "getting away from them." In other words the offi-' cials ~feel II 1 they clamp down in the opening phases of the game, the boys will adjust themselves and play the kind of ball they (Ihe officials) want them to play, not the kind they've been playing all year. You can see the effect of those quick fouls on the boys. They ; lose confidence in themselves, i play accordingly and feel as. If I they are being penalized unfairly. With t h o s e t w o disturbing 5 thoughts in (i minds, the p only 16) "tie up" and their nor$ jnal game is a thing of the past. U 2. The other point I disagree with S is the "pep talk" all officials are ? reputed to get before they are I permitted to work a tournament. f They're forewarned to "clamp ~. clown" on the games, call t h e m close, and control the game. The officials, then loo. are under a strain and call them differently than they have all season, thus making the game a contest of nerves. The result: The boys arc afraid to play and the officials are afraid lo let them play. An I d e a to a solution is a broader interpretation of the rules by the' officials. If a player is called for blocking let it be a block, not a ruffling of the player's suit against the opponent. A foul the players knows he has committed. It ti's charging let's not have a foul called when two are battling for the ball and one loses his balance and inadvertently bumps his guard. Fouls called far from the scene of actual play are others we think unnecessary." Unimportant violations of the "three second rule" in the free throw lane, which gives the ball to the opponent, is a game disrupted, too. Tournament officials also play havoc with free throw shooting, calling to mind unimportant technicalities which have gone uncalled all y e a r and lend no value to the game whatsoever. Mr. M o o i- c and Mr. Martin called fouls as they saw them. They were honest and favored no team. They are our good friends and hope they always will be but, (and I think they'll agree with me) tournament officiating puts too much pressure on the players, because tournament officiating is too technical, too maddeningly accurate and disrupts the normal game of the athlete for whom the s games was originally invented.

The other newcomer was Steve Plantz, recently out of the semi-pro ranks at Pitlsburgh. The learn worked indoors Thursday because of rain. * EVANSVILLE, Ind., (U.R)--The Detroit Tigers were resigned Friday to indoor drills for the weekend because of heavy rains which turned their playing field into a miniature pond. The latest arrival was Frank (Stubby) Overmire, left hander, who won 7 and lost 0 games with the Tigers last season. * MUXCIE.

St. John's Win in Meet New York, f.'l'j--The value of a By JACK CUDDY New York, (U,R)--Connie Mack predicts more hitting and home- runs this season because of the new, livelier ball. Connie made this prediction Thursday night after his Athletics had experimented with the frisky pellet for. 4 days in the "Florida- like" weather at Frederick. Md. Over the telephone from Maryland, the 78 year old proxy of the A's sounded as eager as a rookie as he praised the new pill. He said, "this ball is certainly a great improvement over the one we used last season. It travels farther and faster, and it keeps its shape. I wouldn't be surprised to see a 25 per cent increase in extra bases and scoring. My gracious, yes, there should be more homernns." Connie was surprised at the case with which veterans like Frankie Hayes, Dick Siebert and Al Simmons, for example, lofted the ball over the distant left field fence. He also noted that the sphere has a "ping" to it, as it bullets through the infield, that was missing in 1D43. Simmons looks so good, Connie said, that there's a possibility he might be used as a regular, although Connie intended originally to restrict his activities to coaching. Alack said he hadn't opened on of the new balls yet to investigala the cause of its "life;" so we telephoned WiH Ilarridge, presiden of the American league, at Chi- C3KO. He save the following explanation: "Manufacturers were permittee by the government to use syn thetic rubber and solid cork ii making the 1944 ball--the sam ball that will be used in botl leagues. And the cover is a bi tighter. Because of the rubber am cork shortage, the ball used las season in both leagues had a center of balata and granulated cork. The cover was a bit looser. The new ball may be a bit livelier-travel a few more feet; but I don't believe there will be a noticeable difference. "It is true that distance hitting ell off somewhat in the American eague last season, but I believe 10 departure of sluggers like Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams had lore to do with the decline than ric balata ball." A check of the American cir- uit's batting totals for last season nil the 1942 campaign disclosed a ccline. Two-baggers d r o p p e d rom 1,797 to 1,709; triples from 00 to 362; homeruns from 533 to .74, and (he batting average from 257 to .250. However, the case against the jalata ball was not strengthened by National league figures. Home- -uns did decline from 538 to 432; iUt 2-baggers increased from 1,BBO to 1,739; triples from 323 to 388 and the average from .249 to .258. Despite those contradictory sta- listics and the conservative remarks of President Harridge, we bow to the experience and wisdom o£ Connie Mack.

SKKLLKV Dos Moint's, ( A l ) -- Tlie red-hot sul)-st;ite high school basketball tournaments will reach t l i e important semifinal stage Friday night and now surprises are anticipated as the *lensu teams renew their thrusts toward the coveted BOX SCORE basketball question Friday. At least, the 18,197 fans who crowded Madison Square Garden Thursday night for the opening round of the National Invitation Tourney had fuel for each side of the argument.

Garbark moved into the number one spot when Joe Glenn, 34 year old receiver tip from the Kansas City farm club, announced he was 1-A in the d r a f t and likely to be called within 3 weeks. * LAFAYETTE, Ind. (U.R) -- Al Smith, left handed pitcher for the Cleveland Indians, signed his 1944 contract Friday.

OUen, however, due lo his height, was responsible for 4 enemy field ioals, one of which *he lipped n and 3 r which were allowed when he touched the rim or reached above the basket to deflect {lie ball. In that one, Ottcn was the "difference." OUen. however, was a bulxvark on defense, and without him the Falcons probably would have fared worse than they did. Remaining first round games are slated Monday when Kentucky tangles with Utah, and Canisius meets the Oklahoma Aggies. In the March 22 semi-finals.

He lells all and sundry and most of the time the horses he trains for Warren Wright's Calumet farm win or at least put up a creditable performance. Just before Pensive, one of the 4 Calumet cliciblcs for the Kentucky Derby on May 6, turned 2 years old, Jones was impressed with the son of Hypcrion-Pcni- cuik II. "Plere's a yearling that should amount to something," said Jones. He proceeded to bring the chestnut along slowly and did not send him to the races until last September 20 in a maiden sprint at Belmont Park. Just on the strength of Ben's say-so, the public made the first time starter a 6 to 5 favorite de- spile a fair field of 12 other 2-* year-olds. Pensive romped home by 4 lengths and in his next start the colt scored by 5 lengths. Because his first 2 triumphs were within the space of 6 days was all the more reason for veteran horsemen lo sit up and take notice. "Jones has another Whirla- way,"' many observers said. They remembered hou- Whirly won the 1911 Derby by 8 lengths and set a neu- record. Here was the good thing for the 1343 Futurity.

It was Denver's first loss in 25 games. Hampton was lo face West \Va- crlno in a semi-final match here Friday niclif. The winners trailed throughout the first half, falling behind 9-7 it the end of Ihc first quarter and 15-9 at the intermission. Palmer's rebounding began to tell in the third session, however, as Hampton pulled up to a 17-17 tie at the end of the quarter. The fourth-period attack was sparked mainly by Hardy, who dumped in 9 points in this stanza. His aclivilies were reminiscent of the Forest City game at Mason City, when Hardy poured in 1( points in the last period to give Hampton the district title.
