WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5, 1939 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WHOLESALE MISERY--Sweeps Major Rosters Out of the Pressbox BY AL MITCHELL You Wouldn't Make These Errors... Of course,'you aren't one of those hunters who would pull a gun through a barbed wire fence muzzle first . . . load it with the wrong sizea shell . . . take a shot where you thought something ought to be . . . or do any of the unsafe, gun-busting and head-busting stunts that make tragedy within the fun of the outdoor season. But Its a pretty good bet that you've done some of those tricks . ....or tuat you've used an old-style, open hammered run, put it in your car loaded, or parked it beside a stump while your dog romped around, anxious to get under way with the day's chase. None o£ those are good safety ideas . . . but if you want to hear some good ones, you should make it a point to listen to Wayne Judv next time he comes your way. Judy, formerly an instructor at Clear Lake high school, and more recently a member of the industrial arts staff at Ipiva State college, knows how to make hunting safe. Firearm aiifl water safety have been his major fields of study for advanced college denrees 8 * * « * * He told members of the North Central Iowa Rod and Gun club some of the things he's proved ... at the club's April meeting Tuesday night. . \ . . . And here are some o£ the good* : ways to handle guns in the field, considering "first the shotgun, which is the most dangerous of the tot. 1. Open the action or break the gun and take out the shells when you cross a fence. If you're afraid you'll miss some game in the 1 encerow, kick' it out and shoot over the wire, before you cross. 2. Carry your gun at a "port" position in the crook of your elbow. Then, if you stumble and discharge it,, the blast will carry up and to the side, not into the back of the man ahead of you. 3. Don't carry your gun in your car, loaded. It's both illegal and dangerous. 4. Don't stand your gun on a stump or running board, or put it in a boat bottom, where there's a frisky dog . . . or any dog. ; 5. Be sure that your gun is strong enough in the barrel to stand the pressures generated by high velocity ammunition. Don't try to rebore an old gun'lor heavy ammunition without a thorough test of the barrel, and stay away from the old-timers with the rabbit-ear outside triggers. 6. Keep mud, snow, rain and pieces of cleaning- rae out of the barrel, and don't jam a small- sized shell into a biff gun, with a regular size behind It. Yes, it can happen .'. . and the result is a gigantic "gun liust," right next to the hunter's elbow. 7. Don't shoot out of a canoe or duck boat . . . unless you shoot from a kneeling position while a companion holds the craft steady v/ith his paddle. * * * Almost all those precautions apply to thje hac.dlin£_o£ i the rifle, .-.^. with ".the"extra caution -that the superior .velocity and range of the rifle "rriaTte necessary. ·. " · . With' the rifle especially, it's always necessary to look and he sure before you shoot. * 4= Two maxims guide Judy's safe way of hunting: "A^gun is always loaded until it is proved otherwise." "Never point at anything you don't wish to kill." Gocfd stuff, you say? Right! Hayfield Nine Will Open Spring Ticket HAYFIELD-t-HayficlcJ high school will open its baseball season here Thursday afternoon with Klemme as its opponent. BADGERS DROP OUT OF MEET Controversy on .Negro Hurdler Leads Into Missouri Withdrawal COLUMBIA, Mo., (U.R) -- Don Faurot, . University of Missouri athletic director, Wednesday said he considered closed a controversy with the University of Wisconsin which sought to enter a Negro hurdler, Ed Smith, in a track meet between the schools. Wisconsin igithdrew from : the meet, a triangular one which "\vas to have been held at Columbia April 15, with Notre Dame the third participating school. Coach Tom Jones of the \Vis- consin team said the decision reached was "perfectly agreeable to both sides." Faurot said Wisconsin had withdrawn "due to a conflict in policy concerning the competition of -Ntgroes in athletic contests." " "Competition between t h e white and Nesro races has never been permitted at the University of Missouri, and it is felt that no deviation from this policy should be made," Faurot said. Wisconsin's athletic board and faculty passed a resolution "opposing the engagement of a.uni- versity athletic team-in an inter collegiate contest in which ··'any member of the team is barrei because of his race." The Missouri institution has in the past barred negro student from . its enrollment and has no played against schools ill which Negroes were members of thi competing teams. Last tall, the U. S. suprerh court upheld the right of Lloy L. Gaines, 28, St. Louis Negro, tc enter the Missouri school of law The school previously had denie him enrollment on the ground that the constitution, laws and public policy of the state forbad them to do so. Sports Calendar Wednesday--Bowling. Women's lea Thursday--Bowling, Decker Plant l STARS GET HARD KNOCKS, RECORD ILLNESS VARIETY Pampered Players Go to Hospital. After Skinning Shinbones By HENRY McLESIORE United Press Staff Correspondent DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., U.R*-- t you don't want your boy to be a soldier, then raise him to be baseball player. The chances are that by the ime he"lias played a year or two n the majors he will have developed so many bizarre ailments .hat he wouldn't be called to the colors until the invading enemy was trampling down the cherry trees in Washington and making collect long distance calls on the .vhite house telephone. If you don't believe me, just 3ive yourself the sports page test by reading o£ the wholesale misery now being suffered in tiie baseball training camps. Things nave been so bad this spring that a fellow hardly knows .whether to read the. newspapers or the AmerJ- can Medical Journal for the latest lives of his diamond heroes. Hospital. Scenes Foremost Half the photographs sent out from Florida and California and Texas have had hospital room backgrounds, and players' fever charts are as well known as their batting averages. The baseballers have showed no favoritism in picking their ailments, but have played the whole .field. Cracked shins, twisted muscles, vibratin vertebrae," tortured toes, and ornery elbows all haye come in foi mention. _ . It something isn't done about it soon the Johns Hopkins staf[ wil have to throw out the first bal. of the season, and Dr. Allan Dafoe will be named high commissioner Just think of the headliners who are out of kilter! Gehrig, Bartel! and iHubbeUj Dean, Howe and Mungo, to mention" a few. This is the one hundredth year of baseball, and considering the fragilitj of its players it is surprising tha it has lasted so long. Certainly i won't be with, us another hundred years unless steps are taken to reinforce the fiber of the players No More Pampering? . The, lirst step that should taken, ,perhaps, ii to quit pam pering the players the way they are pampered in the majo leagues. No rare orchid, no heir { the throne, ever was handled wit! such care and solicitude as a ma jor league player. He is rubbed and oiled and examined. He baked under lamps, and x-ray. He is put on special diets, and given special shoes, and braces and glasses and heaven knows what not. And, oddly enough, the more that is done for him, the more he is coddled, the faster he falls apart. In the minor leagues, where money is scarce, and a player is lucky to get a shower after finishing a game, players are healthy as mules. They dress their own wounds, put a few steaks inside of themselves, and report for duty day after day. Dick Bartell Gets Checkup Mason City Preps Move in at Roosevelt Track, Field Shortstop Dick Bartell, obtained by the Chicago Cubs from the New York Giants in a winter trade, was ordered to a hospital for observation after the Cub physician failed to find evidence of rheumatism in the star athlete's Ming left auklc. Bartell was sent to Chicago tit advance of tlie full squad for a checkup. With him is Dr. M. J. Feidelman. Wrestling Bear Too Tough for Behemoth of Mat Game Honey Boy Gets Nod on Human Foe in Southern Contest ATLANTA, Ga., (U.P.) -- Tiny Ruff, who is built somewhat along the lines of a grizzly himself, was a definitely defeated grappler but apparently not much the worse for wear Wednesday after his mat encounter with Honey Boy, a 435- pound bear 'from Nebraska. Honey Boy, although muzzled and attached to a rope in case he got too roush, had little difficulty in mashinsr Huff's shoulders to the mat in five minutes Tuesday nigrht. Depositing Ruff on the canvas was no" trouble at all for the beast, but he had a hard time keeping his human adversary there. Several times Ruff m-o- longed the end by wriggling from beneath the shaggy bruin, but every time he got up Honey -Boy would slap him down and even a professional grappler accustomed to cuffing couldn't take very much of that. A f t e r t h e bout Ruff w a s scratched about the face and bore a bruise here and there but he said he rad received far more serious wounds in scraps with run-of-the-mine matmen. Honey Boy is owned and trained by Roy Welch, Lincoln, Nebr wrestler.

Kinnick was a disappointment lasl fall, but he has reverted to his 1937 form in spring drills under Anderson, the new Iowa coach.
