Matching the above percentage will be sat- sfactory from this writer's standpoint.) ROSE BOWL—Northwestern to beat California. It will be no walkaway like the previous triumphs of Illinois and Michigan at Pasadena. In fact, any sort of win for the Cats will be an A-l triumph. Many think Cal is on the spot to erase previous drubbings of Pacific teams in the Big Nine tie-up. But the Cats are on the spot just as much because, as 2nd place club in the Western conference standings, they must uphold supremacy of the league. Then there's a possible sour grape aftermath if Cal should lose and Oregon beat SMU in the Cotton Bowl. The coast can then yowl that Oregon should have been in the classic. SUGAR BOWL — Oklahoma to beat North Carolina. This writer is sold on the split T offense as used by the Sooners and unless the Tarheels are strictly on the ball in a defensive way they'll be in for a rough afternoon. This game could go either way. Charley Justice may be an All-American in every sense of the word but the brainy direction of Oklahoma's Jack Mitchell will be the difference.

Oregon was stopped only by mighty Michigan while the Mustangs rallied to win some tight games, also put on a spurt to knot Texas Christian and lost to Missouri. Oregon pits much of its offense on Norm Van Brocklin, a fine passer. But SMU still has Doak Walker and the ability to come from behind. ORANGE BOWL — Georgia to beat Texas. JThe Longhorns will be fired up because of the adverse criticism over their selection after a so-so season. This could carry Texas to a win but Georgia was the Southeastern champ and should tack another loss on the Longhorn record. EAST-WEST SHRINE GAME— The East. It's difficult to recall years in which the West has been favored and they aren't this year. The West does get it's sh.are of the triumphs but this isn't one of those years. DIXIE BO\VL—Baylor ' to beat Wake Forest. Both fair ball clubs, we give the nod to the Bears because they played a slightly tougher schedule. DELTA BOWL—Oklahoma Ag- gies to beat William and Mary. This choice is just a midwest leaning. The W and M record is actually more impressive but the Ags found they had a ball club in pressing Oklahoma to the wire; New Year's Day they'll prove they have. GATOR BOWL — Missouri to beat Clemson. It's rough to pick against a perfect record club. And Missouri has never won a bowl game. Like the Sooners, Missouri uses a split T so we'll take a fling on a 2nd club to use. that offense. SUN BOWL—West Virginia to beat Texas Mines. West Vrrgim 3 was a pretty fair club in its own league; that's as much as can be said for the Miners. HARBOR BOWL — Nevada to beat Villanova. Lots of slurs were cast at the Nevada team simply because Santa Clara (a good club) came out on top for Nevada's lone setback. This will be some redemption for Nevada. SALAD BOWL— Drake to beat Arizona. Iowa State beat Drake and Arizona beat Iowa Slate. Circles are nice things and this will complete one. 9th Straight for Mohawks Bennett Counts 11 in Final Quarter By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor The Mason City Mohawks staged a big last quarter rally, good for 13 points, to down the Dubuque Rams Wednesday night at Roosevelt fieldhouse 28-25. The win was the 9th of the season for the undefeated Mohawk cagers and marked the 3rd defeat in 3 nights for the touring Dubuque team. It was also the 8th loss of the season for the Rams in 12 starts. The hero of the .game for the winners was Bernard Bennett. Held without a fieldgoal for the first 3 quarters of the game, Bennett went wild in the final stanza to drop in 11 points to erase a Dubuque lead and carry Coach Elmer Starr's club to victory. Rams Blow Margin The visiting Rams played tough defensive ball and exhibited sharp, fast passing and with only 3 minutes to go in the game Dubuque led 24-20 as the Mohawks seemed headed for their first defeat. But Bennett scored 8 points after the automatic timeout for the Mohawk triumph. Dubuque was held without a fieldgoal for the first 64 minutes of the game before Harvey, Zuckerman potted a long shot for a 5-5 tie. But Mason City took a 10-5 lead by the end of the period as I Charley Murr carried the first' quarter-attack by scoring 7 points. No Fieldgroals in 2nd The complexion of the game changed in the 2nd period as Ralph Richman scored 4 buckets for the Rams while Mason City went scoreless from the field while adding only a pair of gift shots. Dubuque led at the half 13-12. Leo Chimbidis made a follow- in for Mason City to put the Mohawks back in the lead in the 3rd period but that was the only field- goal for the winners in the stanza and Dubuque came back for a 1915 lead by the end of the period. A drive-in shot and free throw by Bennett brought Mason City within a point early in the last quarter but Richman's gift shot and a short shot by Dick Wendt again gave Dubuque a 4-point lead by the automatic time-out. Gets Final 8 Points Then the fireworks started. Bennett stole the ball, made a fielder and converted a gift shot as Zuckerman fouled out of the game. With 40 seconds to go, Bennett popped in a long shot and he added a free throw when Jim Nora fouled out for a 26-24 Mason City lead. As a climax, Bennett took a rebound and dribbled the length of the floor to score. The count was narrowed right at the final buzzer when Dale Siefker Dream Game—Kentucky vs. St. Louis Jayhawks, Sooners in Big 7 Finals Kansas City, (IP) —The University of Kansas Jayhawks, Big Seven cellar dwellers last season, have only the Oklahoma Sooners between them and this year's conference basketball tournament championship. The Sooners, always a power in midlands basketball, give the Jay- hawks their test Thursday night. They meet in the championship game of a doubleheader winding up the loop's 3rd annual tournament. The final game is scheduled at 9:30 p. m. (CST) after Iowa Sta,te and Kansas State battle for 3rd place at 8 p. m. The Jayhawks subdued Kansas State's Wildcats 60-46 Wednesday night and Oklahoma coasted by Iowa State 55-45.

JOHNSON, MEET MR. WENDT—The rival centers of Mason City and Dubuque, Red Johnson (white) and Dick Wendt, are shaking hands in midair when going for a rebound in the 2nd quarter. They neglected to get the ball as Ralph Richman of Dubuque, right, gathers it in. No. 23 at left is Gene Glab of the Rams and No. 13 is Leo Chimbidis of the Mohawks. Mason City led 10-5 when the shot was taken. Record Crowds, Gate Seen for New Year's Bowl Games converted a free throw for Dubuque. Sharing the spotlight with Bennett in the Mason City victory was Bill Postma, who rebounded well throughout the game. Richman topped the Dubuque scorers with 13 points while Nora was a standout in the tight defense of the Rams. In the preliminary game, the Mason City B team downed the Hampton B team 42-20. The Mason City club held only a 17-12 lead at the half and 24-16 at the 3-quarter mark but chased home 18 points in the final stanza for an easy victory. Guard Eric Biederman topped the scoring for the Mason City B team of Coach Bill Moore by netting 8 points.

HATS CLEANED AND BLOCKED Let us restore the original beauty and shape and increase the life of your hat. By CARL LUNDQUIST New York, (U.R)—With nothing much more at stake than the promotion of such assorted commodities as roses and raisins, sugar and salad, and alligators and cigars, some 580,0000 fans, an all-time record, are expected to gather around Saturday for 16 bowl football games. The record turnout, which probably will exceed last year's total for the same number oC games by 50,000, will pay more than $2,000,000 in gale receipts to see the games and a lot of them will get rained on if long range weather forecasts are correct. Out of this total gate, the colleges will benefit handsomely with guarantees ranging from $110,000 to the Cotton Bowl foes, Oregon each I and Southern Methodist, down to antee. $5,000 or so for the schools in the smaller games. Roses Crowd Largest Once again the Rose Bowl at Pasadena, Cal., will get the biggest crowd, with a sellout of 93,000 assured to see the clash between California and Northwestern. However, because of the Big Nine-Pacific conference 5 - year pact, the "take" from the game, $200,000 guaranteed for each league, must be divided among the member schools. Things are considerably better for Oklahoma and North Carolina, who will take home $105,000 apiece from New Orleans for whacking each other around in the Sugar Bowl. Georgia and Texas will get $75,000 apiece for playing in the Orange Bowl and the other guarantees scale down. The Sugar Bowl will have the 2nd largest crowd, 83,000, while a capacity turnout of 67,435 is certain for the Cotton Bowl and 60,000 will be on hand for the Orange Bowl. The weather forecast is foi a warm, clear day in Miami, foi showers in New Orleans, for clearing skies in Dallas and fair and dry for Pasadena. Hospital Benefits The Shrine East-West college all star game at San Francisco wil draw 62,000 despite probable rain and the proceeds, some $125,000 will go to the Shrine crippled children's hospital. For the Gator Bowl at Jacksonville, Fla.. where Missouri play? perfect record Clemson, fair anc warm weather is forecast and each team should get around $50,000 in "take home" pay if the crowd comes up to the expected 38,000. At Memphis, Tenn., where Am- vets are promoting the Delta Bowl Oklahoma A & M and William Mary teams will earn about $30,000 each for their schools before a 30,000 crowd. The weather should be mild. Birmingham, Ala., which modestly promotes all of the southland in its Dixie Bowl, expects a 25,000 crowd and whatever the proceeds, each of the teams, Baylor and Wake Forest, will get one-third. The weatherman says rain may be clearing up by game time. Losing Venture The promoters of the Harbor Bowl at San Diego, Cal., Tuna Fisherman Joe Medina and Ross K. O'Leno, an insurance executive, are peculiar among the post-season promoters. They admit that their game, matching Nevada and Villanova "can't possibly make money, but we .lust want to see a good game in San Diego." The teams get approximately $30,000 apiece and with a crowd of 23,000 at $4.50 per ticket, Medina and O'Geno say they're bound to take a financial licking. But the weath- r will be clear and sunny which may help. The Sun Bowl at El Paso, Texas, ong a little money maker, finds Vest Virginia matched against ?exas Mines and each will get 15,000 guaranteed. Cool weather vith no rain was forecast. The ame in the past has brought in enough money to finance the annual sun carnival in which there are parades, bull fights, marathon aces, and visits to Mexico by the :>layers. Crippled children also are the Benefactors in the promotion of Tlorida stogies at the Tampa Ci- jar Bowl in which Missouri Valey, an encore performer, opposes St. Thomas of Minnesota. The ;ame is sponsored by Shriners and each team draws a $15,000 guar- Drake Geks $12,500 Host team Arizona at Phoenix did something slightly unique be- iore agreeing to play Drake in the Salad Bowl. The players asked $175 each in "expense" money and jot it after also stipulating that a 510,000 guarantee be put in escrow for underprivileged children in the state. Visiting Drake settled for a $12,500 check for the school. The crowd will include former Fight King Jack Dempsey and Actor Bill Boyd who will crown the Salad Queen. It may rain on the 16.000 spectators. Fans at the Raisin Bowl in Fresno, Cal.. will see not only Colorado A & M play Occidental probably in the rain, but they will get a look at Movie Stars June Haver and Roddy McDowell, who are there to film scenes for a picture. If 15,000 fans show up each school will get $18,500. And the players get in on a big post-game champagne party. Little Wilberforce of Ohio takes on home town Prairie View A & M in the Prairie Bowl at Prairie View, Texas, before about 12,000 fans in a game the sponsors say "has been profitable in the past." But it will rain this year the forecasters say. At Orlando, Fla., some 10,000 will watch perfect record Sul Ross of Texas take on Murray, Ky., State in cool clear weather in the Tangerine bowl. The Elks are sponsoring the game for their state crippled children's home and offer $5,000 to each team. The Negro Y. M. C. A. at Birmingham, Ala., will be beneficiary of the Vulcan Bowl game where 10,000 fans will watch Greensboro, N. Car., A & T play Kentucky State probably in the rain. It's truly a sporting event, too. The winner gets $3,500, the loser $3,000. tournament last year and regular season conference champion, never seriously threatened. The Jay- hawks took a 34-22 lead at the half and maintained that edge most of the 2nd period although Kansas State twice shaved the margin to 8 points. Jerry Waugh, Harold England arid Gene Petersen carried the scoring load for Kansas. Waugh hit half a dozen goals and as many free throws, England hit 6 baskets and 3 free throws and Petersen scored 5 and 4. Cyclones Cold Oklahoma beat Iowa State in the first half, leaving the floor with a 10-point 31-21 margin. The Sooners stretched the lead to 19 points shortly after the half but Iowa State closed with a rush. Inability to connect hurt the Cyclones early in the game. They got more shots than the Sooners but were cold. Iowa State's 5-foot-8-inch senior guard, Bob Petersen, took high scoring honors. He hit 3 goals and didn't miss a free throw in 9 tries. Bill Waters was high for Oklahoma with 12 points on [i goals and a pair of charity tosses^ Colorado set a tournament mark in defeating Harvard 81-48 in an afternoon game Wednesday.

Minnesota's undefeated Gophers, one of the title favorites in the Big Nine, and Drake will clash at Des Moines for the 3rd annual Corn Bowl title. . The Gophers, running their streak to 6 straight, toppled Dartmouth's previously undefeated Indians 64-52 Thursday night as Big Jim Mclntyre paced Minnesota with 18 points. The Minnesota triumph followed Drake's 47-46 victory over Vanderbilt which came to the tournament with 4 consecutive wins. The southerners had a 7-point lead with 7 minutes to play. St. Mary's of Winona, Minn., and St. Thomas of St. Paul will appear in the final of the Loras college tournament. The Winona team toppled Luther, only Iowa survivor in the 8-team field, 57-53 and St. Thomas defeated Culver- Stockton 61-58 in the semifinals. In the consolation bracket it will be Loras and St. Ambrose. Both had easy victories. Wednesday, Loras toppling Cornell 82-43 and St. Ambrose swamping Simpson 85-48. Western Illinois Teachers and Both Advance at Sugar Bowl in Easy Style By KRIS KREEGER New Orleans, (/P)— The basketball game everyone has longed for — Kentucky vs. St. Louis — will be played here Thursday night in the finals of the 4-team Sugar Bowl tournament. The Wildcats of Kentucky and Billikens of St. Louis, outstanding college clubs of last season and undefeated in the present campaign, won their way to the title game with victories in Wednesday nights opening round. The Biilikens, National Invitational champions, beat Holy Cross 61-52 in the first game last night. Then Kentucky's NCAA kings, shooting with amazing accuracy, swamped Tulane 78-47.

But St. Louis didn't enter, and Kentucky lost to the AAU Champion Phillips Oilers in the finals. The dream match is set for 9:30 p. m. central standard time in New Orleans municipal auditorium. Holy Cross and Tulane will play a consolation game at 7:30. Both of Wednesday night's victors had far less trouble than generally had been expected. The f irst affair was all' St. Louis after the first 15 minutes. Holy Cross, pride of the east, made a contest of it for that time, and the lead swapped owners 4 times.
