MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MAY 6 g| 1936 ELEVEN BIG FOUR TRACK EVENTS HERE SATURDAY Out of the Pressbox By Al Mitchell Answer J UST IN CASE you've been figuring on that puzzler oj L. W. "Munn" Whitford's . . . remember, he asked, at the Globe-Gazette baseball school of last week: "What is the greatest number of base hits and total bases that can be credited to a team in one turn at bat, without scoring a run?" Here's the answer . . . * * * A team can make six basehits and 10 total bases in a turn at bat and not score . . . here's how . . . the first man at bat triples, and is thrown out at the plate when he tries, to stretch his drive into a homerun. That's one out, one hit, and a total of three bases. The second man at bat does exactly the same thing. That's two out, two hits and a total of six bases. * * * The third hitter singles . . . two out, three hits, seven total bases .. . the next two men also single, getting Texas league hits into the short fields, so that the head runner is held at .third and the bases are full . . . making two out, five hits and nine-total bases. The rest of the problem is .easy. The sixth batter cracks a sharp one between second and third, hitting the runner who is starting off second base. The rules If., say that the batsman is credited ' , . but the base runner And there's the third and the tenth GAZET RTS McLarnin Fishts for Big Money^CanzonenJustjFtghts^ Bill Can See with a hit is also out. out, the sixth hit, base of the total. Movie Education GEORGE MARTY of Mason City was keenly interested a short time ago when the high school baseball team played Swea City . . . because it wasn't so many years ago that he played a lot of baseball in that section of Iowa, with his home town team, Luverne. * * * His 'young son had observed the peculiar-looking equipment of a catcher, hanging in a corner at their summer home, but had never questioned his dad on the use of the pad and mask until he happend to see s. news reel . . . part of which was given over to the opening games of the major league season. " "Say, dad, did you used to do that?" he asked . . . a nod, of course. ·:Whell, I'm going to use your stuff this summer!" So did the movies start another young Mickey Cochrane on a base ball career. .. * * * Odds and Ends ... THE ANNUAL All-Star game between American and National league players will be played July 7 at Bees' field, Boston .. .Viktor Barna, European tame tennis champion who has been touring the United States with Sandor Glancz, operates a sports goods factory ; in Paris ; ... Tom Pontecarvo, Western Maryland college 200-pounder, is a likely choice as heavyweight on the United States Olympic boxing team ... The major leaguer whose name is most often misspelled is neither Estallela nor Coscarart, but Rip Raddiff of the Chicago White Sox ... the boys insist on putting a final "e" on the mo-nicker. . .* * * Several years ago, before Joe Louis bombed his way into the spotlight and shekels, he made ari agreement with a friend, Amsey Rinsom . . if either of them made any money by fighting he was to give the other part of it ... it was a. peach of a deal for Amsey, who is known in the ring as Young Joe Cans. . . . Walter Hagen is going to Africa next winter for an exhibition tour . . . Mike Jacobs is building a $50,000 bowl to fit into Yankee stadium for the Louis-Schmeling fight in June ... the bowl, will seat 12,000 of the customers at $40 per head . . . i construction is in progress in a Long Island lumber yard, the saucer being built in pieces .that will be hooked together in the stadium infield . after the fight Mike will store his folding fight bowl until the next big set-to. NO GROWN IIP AS VETERAN BOXERS MEET ON FRIDAY Sellout Predicted as Garden's Ticket Booths Collect $30,000 Advance. By HUGH S. FUIXKRTON JR. Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, U)--At the risk of confusing a boxing match which has the fans so steamed up they'll probably buy out all the seats in Madison Square Garden by Friday with the current crop of political orations, let us compare the records o£ Jimmy McLarnin and Tony Canzoneri. They are due to fight 10 rounds or less in the big Battle pit on Eighth avenue, with no title but a lot of prestige at stake; An advance sale of more than $30,000, indicating a probable sellout according to Garden officials, and the fluctuating but always close betting odds, attest the public interest in this first meeting between two of the best little fighters in the game.

He's won 42 decisions, scored 19 knockouts, drawn three times, been knocked out once and lost nine times. Canzoneri, believing there's nothing like a good fight to keep a man right on edge for fighting, has had almost twice as many battles, 138 in Never Down for Count. His- record shows 34 knockouts plus 79 decisions on the credit side. 10 draws and a no-decision bout against 14 defeats. He's never been put down for the count in all that long career. · So far almost as many opinions as there' are fans have been recorded.

Win or lose, Canzoneri plans to keep right on fighting.

By ANDY CLARKE Associated Press Sports Writer. The baseball soothsayers are hurrying to amend their choices as the Red Sox g'ain momentum and the Detroit Tigers find barriers heaped along the way. Many of the experts, including Broadway's noted picker, Jack Doyle have leaped from the bandwagon of the Tigers to string along with the team -Tom Yawkey built. They figure that with Hank Greenberg out of the Tiger lineup for more than a month with a broken wrist, and Lefty Grove, Wes Ferrell, Jimmie Foxx and the rest clicking in top form with the Sox, the odds are on the Boston team to lead the way down the stretch in late September. Another prospect is that the Yankees, with a fine all-around pitching staff and Joe Di Maggio and Frankie Crosetti playing sensationally, may take command of proceedings, Grove Wins Fifth. Grove turned in his fifth straight victory and his third shutout of the season Tuesday as the Red Sox beat the Tigers 2 to 0 with 16,100 of Bos- : on's faithful in the stands.

A XI. planned to "hitch-hike" to Berlin on such funds as the $8,000 he claimed his Kansas team and Utah netted in their district elimination won by Utah. Brundage and his assistant, J Lyman Bingham, retorted that Dr Allen had not been appointed Oly pic basketball director by the Olym pic committee but only recommend ed by the National Association o Basketball Coaches. They added tha the Kansas Utah series actual! cleared less than $6,000 and tha because Utah, after losing the firs game, won the second and carriec the series into a third which drew $4,147.

RASSLERS READY TO REPEAT SHOW Thursday Night to See Homer (The Villain) Meet Leo (I'll Save Her.) Once more those sturdy'gluttons for punishment--the railing fans- will gather Thursday night at the armory to witness the American Legion's semi-monthly melodrama which this week features a return engagement starring Leo (I'll Rescue the Maid) Alexander and Homer (Boo I'm the Villain) Wright. The co-stars went over big two weeks ago so the producers are bringing the two out of three fall act here for a return performance. Our hero. Leo, won the honors in the first performance, of course, although Villain Wright was effective in his mustache-curdling role--so effective the customers thought it was the real McCoy. The serniwindup will see John Evko of Chicago and Dick Horner of Dubuque in what is hoped will be action while Tup Tagcson and Olaf Grcserson will attempt to keep the customers awake in the oprnc.'.

Two Scoring Plans. Relays will be scored on the basis of 10-S-6-4-2 points at. the Big Four meeting, while all other events will be scored 6-4-3-2-1. West high will lose some of the strength that it had at Estherville, however, since the local meet will be run under Iowa High School Athletic association rules, which limit entrants in any one event to two. West high entered three men in most of the events at Estherville. Bob Wasem wil be Fort Dodge's chief hope in the Saturday meet, and his strength will be in the hurdles. The blond Dodger pulverized bis own :16.2 record for the high ticks at Estherville last week-end, oiocking the time down to :15.9. Oddly enough, Wasem's time was dentical with the winning figure at he State Teachers' relays, set by .tan Christie of Cedar Rapids Wilon. Christie also broke a :16.2 rec- jrd, the oldest one on the books at Cedar Falls, set by Maurice Soults n 1924. Fourth in Slate. The Dodgers was fourth last season in the state meet hurdles, which vent in :15.7--still not down to the mark set by Frank "Bab" Cuhel of edar Rapids Washington in 1924. Cuhel, who was later a famous hurdler at Iowa, ran the distance in 5.3. Mason City will try for points in three events, depending on two ath- etes to make a showing. Howard Stoecker will spin the discus in competition for the first time, and will have to do something more than 120 feet to score. He will also hurl the javelin. Frank Peter, Waterloo East's state champion of 1935, holds the records in both events, but was graduated last spring. Bill Wagner, who counted Mason City's only point at the Estherville meet last week, will compete in both high jump and broad jump Saturday. Wagner, was fifth at Estherville in the broad jump, and should score in the high step, since Waterloo West's entry placed second there by hurdling 5 feet and 5 inches. Wagner is also a likely point-getter in the pole vault.
