Looking it over wit/? JimYanHeel GEOGRAPHY LESSON — Just in case your kids have a battle with geography, don't tell them to bone up on the subject by looking at the alignment of teams in the National Football League . . . It might be okay if they turn a map upside down ... Or you might throw them a cutie by telling them this is the jet age and distances make no difference (that's to sidestep which way is ea,st or west). Let's see now: Cleveland, which is in the eastern division of the NFL, will be playing Baltimore, from the western division, in the playoff championship game . . . Only Baltimore is east of Cleveland . . . Then there's the playoff bowl, matching the runner- up clubs . . . Green Bay (western division) plays St. Louis (eastern division)—only Green Bay is east of St. Louis. Just one of those things? Let's go farther . . . Dallas is in the eastern division of the NFL .... Only it happens to be farther west than five of the seven teams in the western division (Baltimore, Green Bay, Minnesota, Detroit and Chicago)! Oh •well, they have one thing that makes sense: San Francisco and Los Angeles are in the western division. TWO HEADLINERS — Seating space may be at a premium Saturday night at Eagle Grove . . . That's the night when Eagle Grove High and Fort Dodge collide in basketball . . . There are many years when this wouldn't cause much of a fuss but this isn't the year . . . The Eagles have a 7-0 record and number among their victims such strong teams as Belmond and Clear Lake . . . Fort Dodge, with a veteran club, has had it quite easy so far in posting a G-0 record . .. The Dodgers will enjoy a big height advantage but the Eagles have plenty of polish and have been able to get along against rangier teams ... The winner of this game clearly will be stamped as the No. 1 outfit for the time being in the north central part of the state. The Dodgers have played only a single Big Six game this season (77-64 over East D.M.) so they have a heavy slate of loop activity ahead including a 2-night stand at Waterloo Dec. 28 and 29 ... Round 1 to gain space at the top of the heap takes place in Mason City Friday night when East Waterloo and the Mohawks (each 3-0 in the Big Six) have at it ... The Trojans will be favored but the Mohawks could throw a monkey wrench into the entire loop race with a victory. After an almost embarrassing 82-55 loss to Ames in a non-conference opener, Mason City has racked up four wins in a row . . . That smell of victory is mighty sweet and the visiting Trojans won't be the most confident team in the world. . . . East Waterloo has lost to Mason City in seven of "their past nine clashes. TEETH GNASHING —__Betcha there's some gnashing of teeth in the central Iowa area over the district tournament setup for boys ... By the time the district champs are pulled together for sub-state competition, there can be only one survivor to reach the state tourney from among such schools as East and West Waterloo, Ames, Marsh all town, Newton and Grinnell — big names in state cage circles. Gene Pierotti, former basketball coach at Holy ' Family and Newman Highs in Mason City, now is the sophomore coach at Dubuque Wahlert . . . His team this season is off to a 5-1 start . . . Pierotti went to Rockford, 111., after leaving Mason City before taking the Wahlert job . . . The head coach at Wahlert is Eddie Colbert, who preceded Pierotti as coach at Holy Family. Gary Thompson, who starred as a prep eager at Roland High, later became an All-Arnerican at Iowa State and then played with the Phillips Oilers, is off on a new career . . . He's now the coach of the Oilers and his club got off to a 9-1 start. By The Asseciattd Press Tulsa's Jerry Rhome and "otre Dame's John Huarte were o close in the voting for college ootball Back-of-the-Year hon- TS that one fellow voted for oth of them. But Rhome, who set almost as many records as the guide book ypesetters, got the narrow nod Rhome nips Huarte for "back of year" in the annual Associated Press for moving the football before poll. When th« count of sports writers and broadcasters was completed, Rhome had 42V4 votes and Huarte 39V2. Bob Timber-lake of Michigan was the only other player in double figures. He got 16. Rhome set 10 college records he even played his last game for Tulsa and added seven more — and a little scratching around among the figures will probably locate a few more. The Tulsa star set records for pass completions, touchdown passes, yards passing and total offense for a season — among others — as he led the nation's passers by a wide Dte. U, 1944 New alignments Exempt prep teams listed for district boys basketball There will be a switch in I the Iowa High School Athletic — AP Photofax BACK OF THE YEAR — Tulsa star quarterback Jerry Rhbrne, named Associated Press back of the year, takes a snap from center as t h e team worked out Tuesday in Houston. Tulsa meets Mississippi Saturday in Houston's Bluebonnet Bowl. Rhome, 181-pound senior, is from Dallas. college margin. Rhomt was also tht nation's total-offense leader. In a three-season career, including one at Southern Methodist, Rhome also smashed most of the career college marks, including completions and passing yards. Among single - game marks established by the fabulous passer were seven touchdown passes against Louisville, and 35 completions for 488 yards and 504 yards of total offense against Oklahoma State. Over 10 games, Rhome had 224 completions in 326 attempts, an unprecedented .687 mark and had only four passes intercepted. Huarte, who led Noter Dame tc a^ great season marred at the end'hy the loss to Southern California, finished third in total offense and llth on the passing alignment for areas to make the grade for boys basketball teams in Iowa to qualify for the state high school finals this season after several years of relatively fixed areas. This fact may be obtained through the listing, released by Association, of the exempt schools (192) from sectional tournament play and the district listings. The state of Iowa is divided into 32 districts which embody 17 or 18 teams each. The six largest schools in each district list. Huarte's To beef up bench Cards get Francona in last-minute deal figures showed 114 Hawks first to protest Royals' coach blasts rough play in NBA By The Associated Press Coach Jack McMahon of the lincinnati Royals has followed up charges by St. "Louis owner Ben Kerner of "roughouse tactics" in the National Basketball Association by blasting opposing clubs for "getting away with murder" against Oscar Robertson. McMahon's verbal broadside Tuesday" night was fired only hours after Kerner met with NBA President Walter Kennedy in New York, citing play in the league as "the roughest I have seen in my 18 years of professional basketball." McMahon said opposing play ers are "handling" Robertson illegally. "They're putting both hands on him every time he moves. You cannot use your Without Yanks, Phils ABC lands 2-year pact for Saturday baseball TV By MIKE RATHET NEW YORK (AP) — Major league baseball has stuck its finger in the lucrative television pie for the first time on a multi- club basis, pulling out a $12.2•million plum but juicy question still unresolved: What about the New York Yankees and CBS? The speculation arose Tuesday following baseball's announcement that it had sold its first regular - season package, giving the American Broadcasting Co. the right to telecast nationally 25 Saturday and two holiday games in both the 1965 and 1966 seasons. The money from the new undertaking, named the Saturday Spectacular, will be divided equally among the teams, bringing the 18 clubs participating in the venture about $300,000 a year in addition to revenue from local telecasts. Two clubs with previous com- mittments — Phillies and 19 if the Phillies iron out their local sponsorship problem. The Yankees, purchased last year by CBS, have a contract with the network that has been in existence for about 10 yeart,, but runs out after the 1965 sea- ular, the clubs will get $5.7 million the first year and $6.5 million the second—equivalent to $300,000 per team the first year and $325,000 the second time around. One of the main features of leaving one J»- The Past season^the^ Yan- the ga Spectacular is that Kces leievlsea ^ nome games tl .,, u _ ,_,__,__.... the Philadelphia the CBS-owned on a national basis via CBS, receiving $550,000. They are expected to do the same in 1965. John Fetzer, owner of the Detroit Tigers and one of the prime movers in the package arrangement with ABC, admitted the Yankees participation would have made the transaction more attractive and said: "We hope the Yankees will be included in 1966. But we are there will be no blackout anywhere except in the cities of the two teams playing. The game will be televised into all areas of the country, including cities which have teams. Previously no game was per- hands to impede the progress of a player." Robertson said: "The refs say you have" to be moving to get the foul. I don't understand this. Everytime 1 do it to them, it's a foul. They won't let me play that way. If they can come out and put hands on you, you should be able to do the same to them. "Boston plays alt over you," Robertson continued. "But all the teams are doing it now. The guy picks you up high. You make a move — they grab you and hold you. • "But they do it because they can get away with it." Kerner said Kennedy had told him that a special meeting of NBA referees would be called immediately to discuss his charge. The Hawks' owner said the NBA president had told him the referees would discuss the game in which St. Louis star Bob Pettit was injured. Pettit was hurt when he collided with a Los Angeles player and fell to the floor. Tuesday night, the injury- riddled Hawks lost to the Celtics 124-109 as Boston reeled off 18 straight points late in the second half, forged a commanding 109-81 lead and breezed to the victory. In the nightcap, masked marvel Wilt Chamberlain scored nine straight points in overtime for a total of 58 as San Francisco edged the New York Knicks 134-132. In the only other game scheduled, the Detroit Pistons swamped the Los Angeles Lakers 131-116. completions in 205 attempts for a .556 average, with 11 intercepted.

The Francona transaction, in which the Indians will get a player to be named later in addition to an unannounced amount of cash, was the 13th made during the month-long period in which National and American league clubs can trade with each other. Including the player to be delivered by the Cardinals, 31 players will have changed uni forms. In addition, eight more players have been shuffled in bur other trades since the 1964 baseball season ended. The Cardinals grabbed Francona to beef up their bench strength after a couple of trades n the past week depleted their supply of outfielders. Charley James was traded to Cincinnati along with pitcher Roger Craig for Reds' pitcher Bob Purkey and outfielder Johnny Lewis and pitche do not compete in sectional tournament play. A previous plan was that each four district areas (numbered consecutively) would make up a sub-state area with the champ in one of the four sub-states to advance to the state tourney in the 8-team field. Mason City, for example, was in a sub-state area which roughly was composed of teams in the north central area. This year, the alignment would extend from a line of counties west of Mason City along the northeast border of the state all the way to the Mississippi River. In effect, it would run from Belmond to Waukon. Taking schools from district No. 9, 10, 11 and 12 areas for a sub-state division, it appears that the stronger teams will be Belmond, Mason City, Waverly and Clear Lake. Sectional champs from class A and class B will join six ex empt schools within each dis- rict to form an 8-team district meet. Four district champs will be matched off in sub-state competition. Here is the listing for schools automatically qualifying for district meets with the average daily attendance figures in arackets for schools in the North Iowa area: District S—Algorta (299), A1- gona Garrigan (295), Emmetsburg (179), Bancroft (120), Sentral (112) and Graettinger (HO). District 6 —Humboldt (324), Clarion (256), Laurens (149), Pocahontas (119), Pocahontas Catholic (111) and Twin Rivers (111). District 7—Storm Lake (323), Sac City (224), Odebolt-Arthur TITO FRANCONA —Leaves Tribe Albert C i t y-TruesdaU Aita (129), Lake View Gordon Richardson were sent to .he New York Mets for pitcher Tracy Stallard. Francona, a 30-year-old left- nanded hitter, hit .248 for Cleveland last season with eight horn crs and,24 runs batted in.

The Phillies are expected to join before the start of the season and it is hoped the Yankees will join the rest of baseball for the 1966 season. During the 1965 season the Yankees will be in direct competition with the other 18 clubs, Ralph Houk. "We have not committed ourselves one way or the other," he pointed out. "Our contract for this year with CBS is so much better than what the others are to get, we would have to study the proposition when we are no longer committed to oui; presant contract."
