MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 1943 Mason City Conquers Lindblom. 45-31 TM / * * * v * * * * . · ^r ^^^^ ^^^ SCORING IN 2ND HALF INCREASES SLIM HALF LEAD John Holmen Notches )4Points,'Bninsl3;- Play Des Moines Next By KOGEK ROSENBLUM Globe-Gazette Sports EGilor The hosts weren't very good entertainers Friday night, " and failed to see that the" guests should share in everything, und consequently the Mason City Mohawks walked oft the floor w i t h a 45-31 basketball victory over Lindblom of Chicago before a capacity crowd on the fieldhouse floor. Roosevelt It was the 12th triumph or the current season lor the Mohawks, and the victory, a benefit game lor the Citizens Victory committee, kept the Cardinal and Black undefeated record intact. * V * It was lanky John Holmen who ran off with scoring honors for the evening by racking up I t points on 6 field goals and* 2 charity tosses. Paul Bruns was runner-up for the Mohawks with 12 markers, while Fats Day had 9. Capt. George Scnla- mera, Lindblom center, had 4 field goals and 15 out of 5 free throws made for 13 points. * * W The visitors, seemingly getting off to a whirlwind start, slowed down as the contest progressed, and. the early Jead they held dwindled down to nothing, and once they felt behind they never caught, up. Scalamera's excellent rebound work kept the Mohawks from making a rout of the contest. Lindblom didn't insist upon playing a close-in-to-the-basket game, and on most occasions was content to try for the long shots, a goad percentage of. which were made. The close-in shots that were successful, however, were mostly the products of forward "Moo" Molnor, who had 8 points to his credit. * ·¥ ¥ Coaeh Morrie Swiryn's men started fast and grabbed a 5-2 lead with only, minutes gone by on field goals by Willie Vanclcr Ploeg and George Klunchak and a free throw by JXoInor. Paul Bruns got the Mohaivk attack under way on a field goal and a charity toss, and a few- seconds later tied it up on a second basket. * ¥ * Then with three minutes remaining in the opening period Holmen fouled Scalariiera, made good on the resulting who - --.,, free tnrow to put Lindblom out in front once more, 6-5. Again Brims came through with his seventh Iioint to send Mason City into a 7-6 lend. It was short-lived, however, as Scalamora hit on a field goal and was fouled by Lloyd Klein in the process, and connected on the extra throw to put Lindblom in front, 9-7. This was all the Chicago lads got in this quarter, and four points by Holmen gave the Mo- iiawks their 11-9 lead as the period ended. # * # From liere on in the Eagles never caught up, although they showed signs of coming back to their first-period form at points throughout the second quarter. When the half ended the count stood at 18-11 for the Mohawks, and the totals showed that except for one point, Holmen and Bruns had made every other point between them. Pec \Vcc Day had counted once on a free throw. - , * ¥ ¥ As the third period moved along it became apparent that Judge Grimsley's team had no intentions of letting Lindblom make a repetition of the opening quarter. Closest the Windy City five came in this period was four points, 2420, but once the Mohawks started rolling they piled up a 31-22 advantage at the'conclusion of the quarter. The margin increased as the Inst period play moved on a full head of steam, and before long the Mohawks held a 40-20 lend. Both coaches made use of their reserves toward the end, but it had .little effect on the score. Jack Rces hit for the final counter of the game to bring the final total to 45-31. Both teams had a better thnn .500 average on their free throws, Lindblom sinking 9 of 16 and Mason City 7 of 12. The Mohawks arc in action Saturday night, meeting North DCS Moines in a Big Seven conference game there Next home contest is Feb. 12 against East Waterloo, and the following night the home season will come to a close against powerful West Waterloo.

When the Dodgers' Pete Reiser was standing in line with a bunch of other army recruits at the Jefferson Barracks, Mo., reception center the other day, a non-com calling the roll suddenly shouted: Joe DiMaggio. Is Joe DiMaggio here?" . . . Pete, the boys say, nearly broke his neck trying to locate the Yankee slugger among the inductees before he realized there might be another guy named Joe.

V I Hot Hoosiers Face Purdue In Big 10 Tilt By TOMMY DEV1NE CHICAGO, (U.R)--Indiana, the highest scoring team among the point-mad Big Ten basketball quintets, shoots for its sixth consecutive conference victory Saturday night when it meets Purdue at Bloomington, fnd. The only other league game on " program, reduced by term Spotlight Sports By Roger Eoscnblunt Willie Pep Licks Al Stolz, Proves He's Real Fighter By JACK CUDDY NEW YORK, (U.R)_ That acute tension which is peculiar only to boxing gripped the 19,000 fans in Madison Square Garden Friday night as the two question-mark fighters answered the bell. And the echoes of the opening gong scarcely were deadened when young Willie Pep raced across the ring and landed a long left jab _f lush on the fane ot" Ailie Stolz. * « * Pep, a 21 year old Italian iron) Hartford, Conn., took immediate command of this battle with his taller and heavier opponent, Stolz of Newark, X J. He held command until the final bell of the 10-round bnut and turned in such a magnificent performance that all experts are agreed lhat a new star was born in the Garden Friday night. * * * Pep, who is recognized as featherweight champion in New York State, spotted his opponent nearly six pounds and gave Stottz, prominent lightweight contender, the licking ot his life. Stolz took only two rounds on the United Press score sheet He was lucky that he lasted the distance after being floored in the second session. And Stolz went into the ring favored at 11-5 in late betting. The was all against Pep who made an impression that was none too favorable on Nov. 20 when he out-raced ancient Chalky Wright to win the New York version of the featherweight championship. That night Pep jabbed and faded, fighting mostly on the defensive. * * ¥ - But Friday nir;ht p c p took the offensive from the oncum? Konjr and in every session tried to knock Slolz's head off. It was a chain-lightning: attack lhat ^kept Stoltz constantly bewildered. And this 23 year old btolz is the smartest boxer in the lighlweiehl division, although perhaps not the gamest. * * V Pep moved in xvith a constant hooking barrage to the head. His trainer, shrewd Bill Gore cautioned not to throw punches to the body. Pointing out t h a t when one moves in-- extended-- for a body punch, one invites a clinch And Pep at 1273.', to Stolz's 133 'A would be at a disadvantage in "a clinch because the heavier man could lean on him and wear him down. Pep followed instructions. ,Ancl t h a t s one of the secrets of his success. Although Wee Willie "ocs all-out with every punch to such an extent that in some rounds he misses as many as he lands, he always follows Gore's blueprint of battle. In his November title fight with Chalky Wright, Pep came back to his corner, round after round, and asked, "Can't I go out and fight now-- can't I belt his brains out?" And shrewd Gore kept saying, "Fight the way we told you. Jab and run. Don't try to slug with this guy We're out after the title." So -- Wee WH- lie jabbed and faded until he won the New York version of the title. Because of Pep's jab and run tactics that nighl against a heavy puncher, the New York experts were uncertain about how he would fare against Slotz, who was recognized by all to be the smartest boxer in the lightweight division. But Pep fought an entirely differ- CBt kind of fight Friday night. Basketball Scores (Bl The A^ocialcd I'reih) LAST Sprinpfiekl 50: Vermont 61. Rochester 4G: St. Lawrence 4T.

In the boys' game. Waucoma led M-tO at halhimc. Brucss Ice! the storing with * ¥ While Purdue has the best cie- fcnsivc record among Big Ten cams, it hasn't been called upon to fiice a quintet with the widely distributed scoring punch Indiana packs. The Hoosiers have three id-formers among the league's 10 leading .point-makers. They are Ralph Hamilton, who is third with 87 points; Ward Williams ninth with 50 points; and Johnny Logan, 10th with 4!) points. Hamilton currently is in a hot scoring streak. He bagged 52 points in a pair of games last weekend against Iowa. Purdue has employed a zone defense occasionally this season and it is probable Coach Ward (Piggy) Lambert will switch to it against Indiana in an effort to put the ctamps on the high-flying Hoosiers. Purdue eoes into the contest with a record of three triumphs and two defeats. A loss will result in its elimination from any title consideration and cndan- Kcr its chances of finishing; in the first division. Any optimism over the Boilermakers' chances must trace to their performance Monday when they trounced Ohio State 50 to 38. In that game Lambert finally uncovered .a pair of forwards' who flicked effectively, in Sophomores Paul Friend and Max Friend garnered 20 p o i n t s against the Bucks for the best individual scoring effort of any Purdue player this season. The only consistent Purdue performers have been the veteran Allen Menke at center and Sophomore Ed Ehlcrs at guard. They've accounted for more than half the points the outfit has scored in league play and will have to carry the offensive burden Indiana. against The Minnesota-Wisconsin game is important inasmuch as the loser will fade completely from the championship picture. Both have lost (wo games. Wisconsin, erratic throughout the early season, rates as the choice. Friday night but the Gohawks took an easy '.',0-22 victory for their l l t h straight.

JOSEPH'S fill [Thornton t!i Horses and Such Of the U93 starters since the eginmng of the Kentucky Derby n 1875. only 2{ have been fillies, iiul only one of them has ever won the race. The- last filly entry was in 193ti, when Gold Seeker gave the best she had but could do no better than ninth in a field of 14, with Bold Venture the winner. Track records at Churchill Jowns seem to be enduring ones. The four furlong route record has ·emained unbroken since 1D21, while the time for five furlongs, chalked up in 1912, still holds ;ood, although twice tied. Another boost to baseball in wartime is the dinner given by tlic New York chapter of the baseball writers' association. Instead of calling: it off this year, the Biif Town scribes went riKht ahead with plans for honoring Ted Williams as their selection as the player of the year. Guests at the dinner will be Wendell Willkic and Cupt. Eddie Itickenbackci', along with Williams. The consent o£ both ot these men to speak indicates their approval of the continuance of the nation's national pastime, an opinion they have expressed before. * Sensible Optimism? Bob Feller's statement that he'll pitch for another 10 years must give Manager Lou Bouclreau a lift and high hopes for the f u - ture of the Indians. Bob figures, the wni- will end in 1815, when he'll be 20. He should be good for another 10 years in the big time if he doesn't throw his arm out with that fast ball of his. « · £ * " Many major league hurlcrs, starting in as fast ball artists, later realize tticy won't last Ions at that pace, ami consequently change their style, develop a variety of pilches--more curve and knuckle balls--and stay on to become veterans * * * Some don't seem !o realize tin's and end up either with a minor league club or put of baseball. Typical example is Van Lingo Mungo, who saw his best years with the Brooklyn Dodgers before he threw himself out. Just the opposite is Freddie FiU- simmons, who conserved his arm and is still going--he's well ovct- 40, will probably stay in the National league for a few years yet The Hawkeyes still are sinking those free throws. In all 10 games they have made 12« and missed oO, or G3 per cent. In conference games they -made fiB, missed 36 for 05 per cent. Tommy Chapman has 3B of 50 in all games, 22 of 'B in conference contests.
