BASEBALL Corwith baseball club will come to Mason City for next contest of Coca-Cola Cubs. Game on Sunday list. _^_^_ FRIDAY, MAY 11, 1934 SOFTBALL Eighteen teams to start play in three sections of local softbali league. Two rounds planned, starting on May 21. UNITED STATES GETS FIRST WALKER WIN GOODMAN, LITTLE BLAST WAY WITH EASE TO WIN 8-6 Britons Take Three Putts on 30th Hole to Lose No. 1 Match in Cup Try. ' ST. ANDREWS, Scotland, May 11. W--Johnny Goodman, United States open champion, and W. Lawson Little, husky California golf star, drew first blood today for Uncle Sam in the Walker cup matches, defeating Roger Wethered and Cyril Tolley of Great Britain, 8 and 6 over 36 holes. Goodman and Little piled up a lead of 8 holes during the morning round and built up their advantage to 10 holes at the twenty-fourth. However, Tolley and Wethered cut down their deficit to 7 holes as the three-quarter mark. The Americans ended the match on the thirtieth where the. Britons three putted. Add Second T.'oint. Gus Moreland, swarthy youth from Dallas, Texas, and Jack West- t land, Chicago broker, added the sec- i, ond point to the Americans' score 1 by virtue of their 6 and 5 victory J over Harry Bentley and Eric Fid- \: Eric McRuvie and Jack McLean : registered the first victory for Great Britain, the crack pair defeating Francis T. Ouimet, Ameri- .can team captain, and George T. Dunlap, Jr., United States amateur champion. 4 and 2. Gave Flying Start. The results of today's matches gave the American players a flying start in their attempt to stretch their string of consecutive team victories to eight. A British team has yet to win the biennial competition, although they have threatened .in 1923 and 1926. Three victories and one halved !J' match in tomorrow's singles war | fare will clinch victory for the United States. ;. H. Chandler Egan and Max Mariton, veteran Americans, defeated le Hon. Michael Scott, British :am leader and amateur champion, and Sam McKinlay, 3 and 2, to give the United States three matches to '.one. 1 Profit by Mistakes. . The American youngsters picked · ; up four holes on each nine of the ' morning round. Taking turns at whacking the ball, Goodman and Little carved a 74, one over par, but piled up their tremendous lead on their rivals' mistakes. Tolley and Wethered, far from their usual form, took an 82. V: :thered's indifferent play wrecked any chances the veteran English j · pair had of holding the American" No. 1-team close. The brother of the renowned woman golfer, Joyce Wethered, performed raggedly from tee to green, leaving Tolley mostly bad lies. . Pair Plays Steadily. Goodman and Little played in steady, clock-like fashion, leaving each other easily negotiable shots. A great cheer went^up from the gallery surrounding the home hole when McRuvie sank a 10 footer for a birdie to give the all-Scotch combination a lead of two up over Uncle Sam's No. 2 pair of Ouimet and Dunlap.

Cubs, Rabbit Baseball Get Along Nicely By ASSOCIATED PRESS Events of the past two days have confirmed 'sundry ' surmises that this year's edition of the Chicago Cubs was built around the new and livelier National league ball and the short right field at Wrigley field. A strong wind blowing toward the right field stands made conditions just right for the long hitters of. the Cubs and Brooklyn Dodgers the last two daj's and 13 homeruns have been the net result. Brooklyn got a little the better of the homerun rivalry, but the Cubs won both games, pounding out a 12 to S decision Thursday although outhit 16-14. As B. result Chicago stretched its league lead to a game and a half over three rivals. Shakeiip in Standing. While Lon Warneke was staggering through to win the game which saw Chuck Klein wallop his eighth homer. Gabby Hartnett his sixth and Tony Cuccinello his second in two days, Pittsburgh's game with the Phillies was rained out and the Cardinals took their second straight from the Giants, 5 to 4. This combination gave the Pirates second place with New York and St. Louis tied for third. S Jim Mooney's relief pitching after Bill Hallahan had been knocked out in three rounds and some clever base running by Pepper Martin and Joe Medwick gave the Cardinals their eleventh victory in twelve games after they had trailed by three runs at the start. The Cincinnati Reds whipped the fifth-place Braves 5 to 2 as Si Johnson held Boston to 7 hits and narrowly missed a shutout. Gehrig Runs Show. Lou Gehrig put on a one man show in the American league's headline game, figuring in every one of the Yankees' scoring spurts that brought them a 13 to 3 victory over the Chicago White Sox. He polled 2 homeruns and 2 doubles to drive in 7 runs before retiring after 5 innings. Cleveland's Indians gave Boston a 6 run start in the first inning, then came from behind to win 11 to 10, when Earl Averill and Joe Vos- mik hit homers, each with two aboard, and the Red Sox gave up 7 unearned runs through 4 errors. The Athletics gained a 5 to 3 victory over Detroit on horaeruns by Bob Johnson and Pinky Higgins and the 4 hit pitching of Roy Mahaffey and Alton Benton. Since the Washington-St. Louis game was rained out, the A's tied the Senators for second place and Cleveland moved into fourth, passing the Tigers and Red Sox.

That is, when there's base- Xhe little town o£ Thor, in the eastern edge ot Hurnboldt county, was- almost swept from the map'last Tuesday when fire -broke out and raged through the main street. There's plenty of rebuilding and "straightening up" to do now. But in spite o£ that, the Thor Cardinals will play the Capital City Giants, Negro traveling club from Des Moines, in a Sunday contest. Also the Humboldt county high school tournament is under way Friday and Saturday at the Thor diamond. Old Story There's an old story about the fellow who had to send a pole for a circus tent by railroad . . . the pole being as long as several flat cars coupled together . . . he solved the difficulty by cutting it into a half dozen lengths . . . well, that's not such a bad idea! * * * That's what Glenn L. Martin, boat designer and builder, had to do when the 165 foot dura- lumin mast was built for the Rainbow, which will defend tho America cup this summer in the annual trials that Sir Thomas Lipton's 'Shamrocks attempted so gallantly to win . . . with success never coming. * * * Now, 165 feet of duralumin, one of the lightest metals having strength enough for construction work, weighs 5,500 pounds or a bit more. A pair of delicate scales and some long-winded mathematical calculations proved that when the mast was tested to see whether it met official specifications. * * * The strength of the metal is apparent when it's explained that the wall of the mast is only 310-1000 of an inch thick. The big stick, when standing erect, will sway through 12 inches without breaking. The central point of its swaying movement in a wind is 69 feet above the base, when is exactly according to rule. * * * About this business of cutting the mast up for shipment, which was the thought that started this story . . . the stick was cut off at 98 feet, the two sections loaded on three flat cars, and away it went to the shipyard where the Kainbow will be completed. * * * Four of a Kind The University of Iowa.freshman track squad is something of a Nelson family affair this season. A quartet of Nelsons forms a good sized part of the frosh list from the standpoint of performance. There's Carl Nelson, of course, the sprinting blond who outran almost everything in sight in his last high school competition a year ago; and Paul Nelson of Mt. Zion, who ran a mile in 4:33 recently. * * * A North lowan adds his name to the list, with Don Nelson of Hampton throwing the javelin in freshman competition, and Joe Nelson, Cedar Rapids polcvaultcr, completes the "family." BRISTOW FALLS BY 3-2 IN MEET Armstrong Wins as Play Is Begun in State Match for Baseball Title. MANSON, May 11.--A pair of! miscues by Bristow fielders, coupled with Lotic's t;meiy ;ast inning double gave Armstrong a narrow 3 to 2 decision over Bristow in the state high school baseball tournament being held here. Cang-estard and Fleming formed the Armstrong batteries, wnile Wessela hurled for the losers and Truex was behind the plate. Bristow had scored twice in the fifth frame while Armstrong crossed the plate once in the sixth. Fielding for Bristow was ragged in the final heat and cost the chance of remaining in the state toun;"i' Central City pounded Arnold,' Climbing Hill pitcher, in the first, fourth, fifth and sixth innings to win by 12 to 2 in the second game of Thursday afternoon.

OB-It seems that Rogers Hornsby, .looking over the White- Sox in his officia capacity as manager of the Browns saw something about the way young Zeke Bonura, from T*xas, wafteci ai a slow curve that led him to believe that there was the big White Sox rookie's hitting weakness. So one night, while making a radio speech at St. Louis, the Rajah mentioned his discovery. Apparently from what developed later, all the pitchers in the league were listening in. The White Sox, avid dial twisters, were incensed. "He's Done No Harm."
