Mohawk Appraisal Now that the Mohawks have won 10 games without a defeat and the regular schedule is exactly half completed, some sort of appraisal seems in order . . . And strangely, it's a hard thing to do. .... This writer expects the Mohawks to Le bumped off, maybe a couple of times, before tournaments roll around. . . . Who, when, where? . . . It's hard to say. ... It just seems that sometime those close ball games may go the other way. In 10 games the Mason City basketball team has averaged 36,3 points per game . . . That's a low figure for an all-conquering club. . . . But opponents have averaged only 30.2 points per game. . . That's the answer to the Mohawk success—defense. This edition of Mohawk basket- bailers isn't out to take a lot of wild shots at the basket. . . . Most all the shots taken are legitimate pokes at the bucket. . . . Mason City has played a control game for the most part and rarely resorted to a fast break. . . . On defense is where the Mohawks really shine. . . . Opponents have found that it's extremely tough to work inside the Mohawk defense and 6 clubs have scored less than 27 points. It's a matter of record that our state championship clubs of recent years have been tough defensive units. . . . The 2 Mohawk winners. the 1940 and '43 clubs, were crackerjack defensive units. ... In a big game between a high powered offensive team and an ironclad defensive unit this writer usually gives the nod to the defensive team . . . Until the Mohawks crack defensively, they'll be tough to beat. * End of the Guessing On bowl predictions of last week in this column, 7 came out okay and 4 were wrong. . . . The mark for the entire football season: Right Wrong Tie Pet. 337 91 19 .787 A season ago, the percentage was .724 . . . The picks this season aren't an indication of any increase in wisdom but rather that upsets weren't quite so frequent. * Teddy Williams, who shows no sign of slipping, has a lifetime batting average of .354. . . . Only 3 men, Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby and Joe Jackson, posted higher lifetime marks . . . Williams' mark is for 7 years (because he was in the service 3 years) while Cobb was up for 24, Hornsby 23 and Jackson 13. * Western Fizzle ,West coast football took another beating in the recent bowl games. , . . California, Oregon, Nevada and Arizona finished on the short end of their intersectional struggles. . . . And the West all-stars were nipped by the East in the Shrine game. . . . Iowa got a bowl winner when Drake came through at Phoenix in the Salad Bowl—and little did we know, in selecting Drake, that the Bulldogs were a 9- point underdog. * From an exchange source we hear that the new Wisconsin grid coach will be paid not more than $12,000 and probably less. . . Top candidates include Bud Wilkinson of Oklahoma, Hugh Devore of St. Bonaventure. II o w i e Odell of Washington and M a r c h m o n t Schwartz of Stanford. . . . We'd lay odds it won't be either of the last 2 mentioned. * Ball Park Values Building costs are felt in all fields and that's why very few postwar stadiums, ball parks and i'ieldhouses have been erected although the need is keen . . . Roughly, replacement costs of better structures are now 2J. times as high as old originals. . . . Yankee stadium, built in 1927 for $2,000,000, now would cost 55,800,000 to replace. . . For some ball parks the increase is even greater on a percentage basis . . . Braves field was erected for $550,000 but now it would be 3 million. * It would be nice if Paul Brown, coach of the Cleveland Browns, would get put somewhere. . . . Seems like he's due to move in at most any big university to add some gridiron glory. . . One Iowa writer has Eddie Anderson retiring and Brown taking over the Hawkeyes. . . . We doubt it. . . Dr. Eddie could drop his gridiron woes and stick to surgery but he's too much attached to football in general and Iowa in particular. * Cal's Jackie Jensen is quite a football player but they say his real bid for the bigtime will be in baseball . . . He's one of the standout hurlers in collegiate baseball. Jensen has another year of eligibility with the Bears if he wants to use it. Standings of local teams: Mason City St. Joseph's Clear Lake .

Here GUZOWSKI Iowa, Drake, Iowa Tutors in Cage Wins By The Associated Press The University of Iowa Hawk- eyes and the Drake Bulldogs came through with wins in their first post-vacation basketball games Monday night. The Hawkeyes plugged out a n o n e-too-impressive 61-54 win over Western Reserve and Drake rolled to a 69-48 t r i u m p h over Creighton. Iowa took a 37-27 halftime lea d, but Western Res e r v e, using a fast break, pulled up to 58-52 with 5 minutes to play. Dom Veil e 11 a, Western Reserve forward, got 24 points to lea d both teams in scoring. Tony Guzowski and Al Weiss made 13 points apiece for Iowa. Drake led all the way in its win over the Bluejays. The half ended 29-24, and Creightoti cut that lead to 3 points shortly after the 2nd half opened. That was as close as the Bluejays came. John Rennicke was high scorer for Drake with 21, and Bill Montgomery got 12 to lead Creighton. In other games, Iowa Teachers took another step toward defense North Central conference with a 57-41 win over North Dakota, and South Dakota State nipped Buena Vista 55-53. In the game at Iowa City, 2 Western Reserve players went out on fouls in a hard-fought second half. One of them was Forward Jim Cochrane who had scored 17 points. The Boxscore IOWA—lil Ft!

''In both cases, football is then life," he says. McMillin w a s All - America quarterback at Centre college back in the 1920's and Bell played on his team. Another Year to Go Walker, a 2-time All-America with another year to go, was the spark of Bell's victorious Cotton Bowl team which beat Oregon 21- i 13 New Year's day. i McMillin, coach of the Detroit ' Lions, saw the Cotton Bowl game and spent plenty ol time with young Doak. Detroit has draft rights to Walker in the National league. "I've another year in college ball. Maybe I might go into ranching, or maybe start in business in Dallas," Walker said. Fabulous Record His record is labulous. Playing part of the 1945 season, and all of 1947 and 1948, Doak has: Carried the ball a total of 353 times for a gain of 1,751 yards. Thrown 173 passes, completing 99 for 1,113 yards. Caught 24 passes for 435 yards. Punted 58 times for an average of 35.8 yards. Returned 45 punts tor 664 yards. Scored 28 touchdowns and made 42 points after touchdowns. "He is a great player," Coach Jim Aiken of Oregon said of Walker. "He was the difference between the 2 teams. He was effective because we were always afraid of what he might do." Heavy Slate Faces Locals for 6 Weeks Who will be the busiest basket- I ball club in these parts?

Illinois Beats Badgers 62-50 to Open Big Nine Cage Card Chicago, (/P)—Illinois' balanced attack paid off Monday night for a 62-50 win over Wisconsin at Champaign, 111., as the Big Nine basketball title chase began. Wisconsin thwarted Illini Marksmen Dike Eddleman and Wally Osterkorn only to find Bill Erickson breaking loose for 17 points. Eddleman, 3rd ranking conference sharpshooter with a 16.1 game average, was handcuffed with a 'mere 3 free throws. Oster- korn bagged one basket and 2 free throws. Eddleman was out about 10 minutes of the game to receive first aid for a deep gash over his eye. The Badgers' Fred Schneider suffered a cut lip. The Illini were never pressed in rolling up their first Big Nine decision and their 9th win in 10 starts for the season. They led 3223 at halftme and ballooned it to 60-32 in the 2nd half romp which gave reserves exercise. Indiana booked its 8th win in 9 games by tripping Marquette 5647 in non-league action. Two reserves, Bill Tosheff and Jerry Stuteville each tallied 13 points for the Hoosiers. Loyola of Chicago handed Purdue its 3rd consecutive setback 42-33 while invading Northwestern dropped a 59-37 count to Missouri as the Tigers hit 39.G of. their field shots.

Grid Yankees Sign Quartet of Collegians New York, (U.R)—The New York Yankees, hurrying to get their squad lined up for the 1949 All- America football conference season next fall, signed 4 players Tuesday, 3 of whom were standouts in New Year's day bowl games. Considered the 2 outstanding additions were Fullback Tom Landry of Texas, who scored one touchdown and set up another as the Longhorns upset Georgia 4128 in the Orange Bowl, and Halfback Jerry Williams of Washington State, who received a touchdown pass for the West in the Shrine Bowl at San Francisco. The 3rd bowl player was Guard Ken Sinofsky of Nevada, who played against Villanova in the Harbor Bowl. The Yankees had to outbid the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football league for Sinofsky and the New York Giants for Landry. In Hillsdalc, Mich., Halfback Tom Ward of Hillsdale college, out most of the 1948 season with a broken hand, announced he had signed with the Yankees. He twice was the highest scorer in the state. SID GORDON GETS INCREASE FROM GIANTS New York, (U.R)—A "nice raise in pay" was included in the 1949 contract signed Tuesday by slugging Third Baseman Sid Gordon, the New York Giants announced. The exact amount of his salary was not revealed. Touchdown Fumble Rule May Come Up for Revision San Francisco, (U.R)—The rule that allowed Northwestern to win the Rose Bowl game with a "touchdown fumble" may be up for revision during the National Coaches Association convention here this week, Rules Committee Chairman Lou Little of Columbia indicated Tuesday. As the first sessions of the 700 college coaches and athletic directors got under way. discussion centered around the controversial Art Murakowski fumble that was ruled a Northwestern touchdown and ultimately gave the Wildcats a 20-14 victory over California. The belief was that, if a ball is fumbled in mid.field and the opposing team recovers and keeps it, the same rule should apply to the end zone. That, discussion probably will highlight the rules committee meetings opening Wednesday, along with the mass substitution rule, which has been booed vigorously from coast to coast, but which appears to be popular with the coaches. Little has taken a mail poll of the coaches on the free substitution, but wouldn't reveal the result. It is believed that a majority of the mentors favored continuation. NCAA May Place Clamp on Number of Bowl Contests New Orleans, (U.R)—The National Collegiate Athletic Association plans to do something soon about reducing the number of postseason football bowl game.?, a prominent member of. the N. C. A. A. indicated Tuesday. The informant, who insisted that he not be identified because of his key position in college athletics, said the N. C. A. A. may fire its first volley at this year's convention. "There were more than 50 bowl i games played this season," the member said. "One school, Hardin- Simmons, played in 3 such games. We know that has to stop." The N. C. A. A. is expected to take one of 2 steps—either ban the bowl completely or limit the post-season games to bowls established before 1936. Under the Second Guessers Club—Attention! Pueblo, Colo., (U.R)—Albert Collette of Pueblo Tuesday was named winner of a season-long football contest sponsored by a local radio station (KGHF). He picked all but 4 winners in the entire season. For his skill, he won S2S, a razor and a' year's .supply of shaving cream. But Albert, who is 6 years old and a 1st grade student, will put his razor away for future reference. Cedar Rapids Raiders Lose to Waterloo 54-46 Cedar Rapids, (/P) —The Waterloo Hawks jumped into a 27-13 first half lead here Monday night and then held on for a 54-46 professional exhibition basketball victory over the C e d a ;• Rapids Raiders. Harry Boycoff, 6-0 center, led the Hawks of the National league with 12 points. Len Metcalfe, former Iowa star, and Emory Sample each had 11 points for Cedar Rapids. latter set-up, the association would sanction only the Rose Bowl, the Sugar Bowl, the Cotton Bowl, and the Orange Bowl. It was also learned that the N. C. A. A. is sponsoring a 3-man committee that already has compiled information on every bowl game, including the amount of money earned or lost by the bowls, and the methods employed by bowl selection committees. T he investigation committee members are Commissioner Victor Schmidt of the Pacific Coast conference, Commissioner Bernie Moore of the Southeastern conference, and Tulane Athletic Director Horace Renegar. Heath Signs With Green Bay; Lambeau Expects Him to Click Los Angeles, (/P)—Stan Heath, college football's No. 1 passer in 1948, has signed a contract to play this year with the Green Bay Packers of the National pro football league. Curley Lambeau. coach of the Packers, said Tuesday Heath mailed in his contract from San Diego, where he is recuperating from rib injuries suffered in the Harbor Bowl game against Villanova. Heath, who had a standout season with the University of Nevada, was Green Bay's No. 1 draft choice. "I think Stan will have a good season with us," said Lambeau. "He seems to me to be a combination of one of our great passers, Cecil Isbell, and the Los Angeles Rams' Bob Waterfield. He's 6 feet, one-inch tall, weighs 190 and played a year with Wisconsin before lie went to Nevada. He played his high school football in Milwaukee and will make his home there." Heath gained 2,013 yards for Ncvada by passing last season. Lambeau would not disclose the terms of Heath's contract but said it was "entirely satisfactory" with the Nevada,star. LUKE SEWILLL Back to Majors Luke Sewel! to Coach for Cincinnati By MILTON RICHMAN New York, (U.R) — Luke Sewell, the only man ever to lead the St. Louis Browns to an American league pennant, was signed Tuesday to coach the Cincinnati Reds, thereby swelling the ranks of former big league managers who now are turning to coaching jobs. The 48-year-old Sewell, who won the pennant with the Browns in 1944, returns to baseball after a 2-year absence. According to Cincinnati officials, he will be one of the highest paid coaches in the majors. llth Ex-Manager By signing with the Reds, Sewell becomes the llth ex-big league pilot who will serve as coach in the majors during 1949. All but 4 of the 11 were signed as coaches since the conclusion of the 1948 season. Apart from Sewell, other former managers who will serve as coach- the National league are CACM: CKOVE Hob Lister Hob Kmitsini ....

If they can maintain or better that pace they'll make the grade. Tuesday night at Roosevelt field- house the Mason City junior college team will meet Eagle Grove J. C. in an attempt to grab victory No. 4. Chances appear quite good as the Eagle Grove team has dropped all 5 games this season. Hansen plans to use the same starting lineup which has opened the last 4 games although he's still seeking more scoring punch among the forwards. The preliminary game, starting at 7 o'clock, will match the Monroe junior high team of Mason City against (he Charles City juniors. On Friday night, the Trojans travel to Estherville to take on the undefeated junior college team of that city. By WILL GRIMSLFA' New York, (#>)— The Rose Bowl carved up the largest financial melon of the some §2,500,000 that poured in from the New Year's day football games but 2 of the fattest individual slices went to the teams in the Sugar Bowl. North Carolina and Oklahoma received the fat purses at New Orleans—better than $102.000 each— without any commitments to share it. Principals in the Rose and Cotton Bowls were paid off handsomely but had to scatter some of their wealth among their conference brothers. Even so, it looked as if California and Oregon, the coast co| champions, both would wind up with a bit more than 8100,000. Oregon Gets 2 Cuts Oregon not only receives its share of the Cotton Bowl profits but, as a Pacific Coast member, gets a bit of the money taken in by the Rose Bowl. While the Pasadena sponsors les Frankie Frisch, Freddie Fitzsimmons, Allen "Dusty" Co'oke, Honus "Hans" Wagner and Clyde Sukeforth. Frisch, who piloted the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1940 through 194G. and Fitzsimmons, manager of the Philadelphia Phillies from 1S43 through part of 1945, were recently signed to coach the New York Giants. Both are former Giant players. Back to Coaching Cooke presents a unique case inasmuch as he was signed as a trainer by the Phillies originally, was promoted to coach, then manager for 2 weeks, and now is back as a coach again. Wagner managed the Pirates part of the 1917 season and Sukeforth served an interim manager for the Brooklyn Dodgers early in 1948. Both arc coaches with the same teams currently and they, along with Cooke, are 3 of the 4 holdovers. The 5 American league coaches who once managed in the majors are Steve O'Neill a n d Bill McKechnie of Cleveland; Ted Lyons of Detroit: Bill Dickey of the New York Yankees and Jimmy Dykes of Philadelphia. All but McKechnie signed up for their new jobs within the past 90 days. Prep Cage Card West Waterloo at Dubunue. IS'ew Hampton ai Di-corah. Cedar Tails at OeHveiu. Clear Lake at Charles City.

This includes receipts from approximately 89,270 ticket sales and $100,000 for radio and television rights. Of the total, the Tournament of Roses association gets about $129,000, leaving approximately $404,000 to be split between the Pacific Coast and Western conferences. Here's how the 2 conferences deal out the dough: University of California, the host team in the bowl, gels half the conference share—-in this case ? 101,000—and S25.000 goes to the conference treasury. What's left is distributed among the members. California shares in this, too. 11-Way Biff Nine Split The Big Nine divides the pot 11 ways. Northwestern gets 2 shares, one share goes to the commissioner's office and one goes to each of the 8 members. The S u g a r Bowl collected around $324,000 from its 83,000 customers and dished it out in a less complicated manner. The change isn't counted officially but North Carolina and Oklahoma, the competing teams, appear sure to get $102,000 or more. The rest, after expenses, goes to help pay off the stadium indebtedness, around $825,000. The Cotton Bowl at Dallas grossed $309,525.60. Uncle Sam snatched $50,400 of this for taxes and the State Fair of Texas took 15 per cent of the remainder for stadium rental. Cotton Bowl Juicy The competing teams, Southern Methodist and Oregon, were left with a paltry $108.912.47 each. S. M. U. had to pay 25 per cent of its share—$27,478.11—to the conference. Oregon voluntarily voted to kick in a hunk of its take to the P. C. C. At. Miami the Orange Bowl's 60,523 patrons paid $323,400. About $41.000 was turned over to the city for stadium rental. Texas and Georgia, which furnished the entertainment, received $75,000 each. The smaller bowls haven't finished all their figuring but several already have seen enough to recognize red ink.

Duquesne, which had won 6 straight without a reversal, bowed, to Yale at New Haven, Conn., 7156, leaving only 11 major teams with perfect records. North Carolina, meanwhile, stretched its winning string to 7 by topping Maryland 55-47 in a Southern conference at Chapel Hill. Lavelli Leads Yale Tony Lavelli, Yale's great scoring ace, personally fashioned the undoing of the Dukes by scoring 26' points. Charlie Cooper tallied 17 for Duquesne. North Carolina had trouble with Maryland during the early stages, leading only 26-24 at the half. But the Tar Heels pulled away after intermission. Irish Need Rally In one of the feature intersectional clashes, Notre Dame staged a spectacular finish to prevail over the St. Mary's Gaels 70-66 at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. The 2 teams were tied 30-38 at the half. John Brennan led Notre Dame's offensive with 22 points. In a preliminary game, Center Joe McNamee of San Francisco set a new Cow Palace scoring record by pouring in 38 points to lead his mates to a 57-47 triumph over Santa Clara. Dartmouth, one of the good teams of the east, won its 9th victory in 10 starts, beating Rochester 64-51. In other topflight games, Tulane defeated Florida 63-41; Tennessee triumphed over Wake Forest 70-51; Furman stunned Georgia, which previously had lost only one game in 8 starts, 71-56, and DePaul topped Oklahoma City IL, 43-41.
