Midwest Expands to Eight Teams— Harlan Favored; Jeff, Denison, Ida Grove Contenders By Dale Baron Sporls Editor, Tlmrs Herald Tlmcs-Ilorald CARROLL — The Midwest Conference expands to eight teams this year with the addition of Audubon and Lake City, but that should n't cause any worry to defending champion Harlan and contenders Jefferson, Denison and Ida Grove. Pro-season estimates indicate a definite split between the first and second division clubs. The leaders appear to be head and shoulders above the also-rans on the basis of talent, depth and size. There is no question in the minds of seven coaches about Harlan be- ins established as the overwhelming favorite. The Cyclones are loaded. They have size, good speed, better than average passing and exceptional depth in a 50 - man squad. The top 20 are all upper classmen and it's extremely doubtful whether a sophomore can break into a varsity game. "We got clipped real bad by g r a duation," Harold, "Swede" Johnson, Harlan coach, said. "We lost 10 lcttermen including Gary Larsen, the leading scorer in the conference, and Derrill McConnell, second team all-state tackle. We also lost three members of our crack spring relay team that turned in a : 44.1 time in the Drake Relays last spring," he explained. "We should not be classed as the favorite because we lost too many good boys," he insisted. But Coach Johnson neglected to mention that he has 14 returning lettermen headed by scat-back Gary Jorgensen, a member of last year's spring relay team, veteran fullback Galen Plumb and a six- foot-five-inch 225-pound end in Bill Lewis. Heavy Line The right side of Harlan's hefty line will average better than 200- pounds per man and the left side will average a shade under 200. Bill Beauchamp, son of famed stock car driver Johnny Beauchamp, will trigger the Cyclone attack at quarterback. He is a 155- pound junior with an on - target passing arm. Bob Dornon, 170 pound senior, is pressing Beauchamp for the signal calling slot. After Harlan it could be a toss up for the top three contenders, but the sideline experts tend to lean toward Jefferson. Coach Ray Byrnes has 13 returning lettermen from a 50-man squad. "Our reason for questionable strength lies in the fact the punting, signal calling and passing will be handled by underclassmen," Coach Byrnes said. "We graduated 16 letterman, of whom four were all - conference," he explained. Nevertheless the Rams are pretty well fortified with better than average size and good speed. In Bill Morain, 154-pound senior, and Jim Blackburn, 145-pound junior, Times Herald, Carroll, la. ^ Saturday, Sept. 5, 1959 £ Jefferson should have two of the best running backs in the loop. The quarterback spot is questionable but looks like a tough tussle between Chuck Stanley, junior, and Jim Clopton, a sophomore. Dark Horse The surprise of the conference might be Denison. The Monarchs finished with a dismal record of on victory and eight losses last season, but spirit is running high this year with a veteran club built around 1!) returning lettermen. "If we can get past our first two games, which are non - conference, we could be real tough before the season is over," Coach Max Liggett predicted. Denison is blessed with a fast hard-hitting line of veterans and one of the fastests backs in the conference in Jim Mocller, a 175- pound junior. The Monarchs also have a pair of top ends in Dale Henningsen and Jerry Lindstrom and a good backfield pass receiver in Roger Siemer. Dale Mullen will pull the string on Denison's aerial circus. The team that last year surprised every club in the loop except Harlan is Idc Grove. The Hawks will be back almost as strong as before but with a new coach in Ralph Capitani, former Des Moines Dowling and Iowa State Teacher star. Although Ida Grove has a new coach, the team will use the same single wing system employed by Lou Bohnsack. Cranston Gone The only apparent weakness in the Hawk offense is the absence of break-away runner Dick Cranston who departed by graduation. However, Coach Capitani has three of last year's backfield starters ready for another season. They are Curt Rupert, 175-pound spin back, Joe Dolejs, 105-pound tail back, and Valgene Pluth, 175-pound blocking back. Dave Hink, a converted end, or John Bickley, a junior, will likely get the wingback assignment. The Ida Grove line figures to be a shade under average in size but is lightning fast and anchored on Roger Roberts a junior tackle who rates as one of the best in the league. Howard Ehlcrs, a 225-poun- der, is the only hefty player on the 43-man squad that numbers 13 lettermen. Four-Way Toss-Up "The second division is a toss-up between Carroll, Audubon, Sac City and Lake City," Coach Gene Macomber, of Carroll, said. Carroll has a veteran squad built around 10 returning lettermen but no depth on the bench. The Tigers will have good size in the line and better than average speed afoot. John Schaben will handle the quar­ terback chores and can call on a pair of hard driving halfbacks in Jon Lane and Leonard Snyder. Carroll's aerial effectiveness will hinge on the ability of quarter-miler Roger Kaspcrscn to elude defenders and gather in Schabon's long shots. Sac City had a dismal season a year ago and failed to win a conference test, but Chuck Clawson, former Iowa State Teachers luminary, moved in as head coach and things arc looking up in Good Indian land. "We have 14 lettermen hack from last year, but hey have used the T-formation here .for years and we are starting them in on the single wing. It will takd a little time to get adjusted," Coach Claws o n said. Top players in the Indian camp appear to be John Mason, 165- pound senior tailback and Larry Bowman, 275-pound senior tackle. One Starter "We have only one starter back from last year, Bob Kraft, 150- pound guard, despite six lettermen and that sums up our prospects," Coach Jim Yunek, Lake City, said. The Eagles are hurting and their success is apt to hinge on the ability of Craig Colvig to hit Joe McCaulley and Darrell Christian with sufficient passes to keep the defense honest. Audubon joins as an unknown quantity, but the Wheelers upended Sac City last season and could surprise a number of foes. '"We had in out for football here a year ago and we have 56 out this season. That keynotes the interest here," Coach Jim Williams said. Jim Jensen and Merrill Firebaugh will head the offensive unit, and the line will be anchored on Steve Hilsa'ieck, 105-pound sopho- j more center. Virtually Lock-up Flag— Sox Shade Tribe, 3-2 By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer The "Go-Go" White Sox? Call them the Go-Go-Get 'em White Sox. Bettor yet, call 'em champs. Eight days ago, Chicago's weary Sox appeared on the brink of a battering as they moved into Cleveland for a four-game series. It touched off a showdown schedule of seven games in 10 days with the power-swinging, second- place Indians. The White Sox, their pitching worn thin, had dropped four of their last 10 games and their American League lead was down to IV* games. The Indians? They'd won eight straight. Now, with five games gone in the showdown, the White Sox have won five, extending their lead to a virtual lock-up 6Vz games Fri day night with a 3-2 victory in the opener of a last-stand, three- game series for the Injuns in Chi' cago. Usual Fashion They did it in their usual fabu lous fashion, hitting nothing but singles and delivering on defense in support of Early Wynn, the right-hander who was too old to rate the White Sox much of a chance in preseason pennant picks but who now tops the AL with 18 victories. The White Sox have a 14-5 sea­ son edge over the Indians with three games to play. Their magic number is 16—any combination of Chicago victories and Cleveland defeats totaling 16 will give the White Sox their first flag in 40 years. In the scramble for third place, Detroit tied New York by beating Kansas City 9-2 behind Don Mossi's six-hitter while the Yankees lost 3-0 to Baltimore, blanked on six singles by Milt Pappas. Washington eliminated last weekend, defeated Boston 4-3 and officially knocked the Red Sox out of the race. Kansas City also dropped out. The White Sox, now 31-9 in one- run decisions nailed the Indians with an eighth-inning run off Jim Perry (10-7). jet ,W Two Bouts Per Year Fullmer's Schedule WEST JORDAN, Utah (AP)Gene Fullmer's manager, still fumbling over a this-or-nothing setup for Gene's middleweight title defense, said Friday night the new NBA champion will fight at least twice a year—and won't fight unless it's for the title. "We fought enough coffee and cake fights when we were trying to get a crack at the championship," said Marv Jenson, whose Mormon battler won the National Boxing Assn's. version of the crown last week by knocking out Carmen Basiloi. "From now on the champion­ ship—and the money that goes with a championship—is all that matters," Jenson added. Jenson said Fullmer's first defense will come before the end of 1959—the opponent as good as named but the time and place not fixed. When Fullmer and Basilio signed to fight for the title the NBA withdrew from Sugar Ray Robinson, they agreed to defend against an opponent picked by the association. Wednesday, the new NBA rankings listed Spider Webb as No. 1 contender and thus next in line for a title shot. CARROLL STARTERS . . . when the Tigers launch the football season at Manning next Friday night will line up like this. On the line, from left to right, are Larry Cover, right end; Ron Fricke, right tackle; Ron Swanson, right guard; Ronnie Edwards, center; Jim Prince, left guard; Jack Hays, left tackle; and Roger Kaspcr­ scn, left end. In the backfield, from left to right, are Leonard Snyder, Jon Lane, John Schaben and John Helmkamp. "We've got a good starting unit but no depth. If we get any early season in­ juries It could really hurt our chances In the tough Midwest Conference," Coach Gene Macomber said. Fallowing the Manning game, the Tigers will entertain a second Coon Valley Conference foe when Manilla comes here on Sept. 18. After that the Carroll club will be Involved in seven consecutive conference games against Harlan, Audubon, Denison, Lake City, Ida Grove, Sac City and Jefferson. (Staff Photo) Black Hawk Lake Bass Are Hungry Largemouth bass are hungry and impatient at Black Hawk Lake. Largest taken at Lake View is said to be 4'z to 5 pounds. Surface lures such as "Jitterbugs" at dusk and artificial night crawlers before dark is the prescription suggested. Black Hawk also reports excellent walleye fishing, the State : Conservation Commission reports. I Hallets Pit, a state access area near Black Hawk Lake, has ponds that produce fine bass. A six poun- i der was reported taken there last week; while at Storm Lake, bull! heads are rumored to be very good. I The big perch are beginning to hit in Spirit Lake. Crappies and cat are good near Creston in Green j Valley Park. This is the season for cat in artificial lakes. ' August and September bring the i acme of smallmouth fishing in j northeast Iowa streams, while in j the southwest, catfishing is better I than ever because of the two years j of good water since the drought ; which ended in 1957. Some planting of fingerlinc cat plus migrants have participated the good fishing. j Trout stocking will increase from now through September, the ideal period for trout fishing — low. clear streams — beautiful foliage that comes with the first frost and later daylight so one can enjoy dawn fishing without rising at three a.m. Pepsi-Cola filling Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co.

The top three clubs over-all have lost three more games than they've won in thj past two weeks of the stretch drive. Pittsburgh's caught the lever, too. After nuzzling into the race, the fourth-place Hues now have lost three s'. might. The San Francisco Giants have managed to lose seven of their last 11 games. Yet they still lead by two. Second-place Los Angeles is the only winner among the top three over the past two weeks And the Dodgers are only 5-3 for that span. Braves Stumble Milwaukee's third-place Braves, in pursuit of their third straight flag, have lost six of their last 10. The Giants blew a half-game of their lead over idle Los Angeles Friday night, losing 2-1 to the Chicago Cubs on a pair of unearned runs. Milwaukee cut its latest losing skid at three, beating Cincinnati 4-1 as Warren Spahn won his 18th. The Bucs were blanked 3-0 on six hits by Philadelphia's Jim Owens. Costly Boots The Giants, hobbled by Infield injuries, kissed this one good-bye when Jackie Brandt, an outfielder playing third base, booted two balls in the fifth inning and Al • Dark followed with a two-run dou- |ble. Jack Sanford (12-12) lost it. I Spahn put away the 264th victory of his career while Hank I Aaron had three hits in five trips 1 drove in three of the Braves' runs and upped his NL-leading batting average three points to .361. An error, Ed Bouchee's RBI double and a run-scoring single by Gene Freesc beat the Pirates and Harvey Haddix f 11-10).

Both teams are bolstered by a lai'Re supply of lettermen. Brandes, in his 16th year with the Waverly Go-Hawks, has 11 veterans back. Standouts include Jerry Sullivan, senior halfback; Bill Westendorf, .senior tackle, and Mike Carver, senior center, j "We should be right up there," Brandos said. "But don't count out Charles City, New Hampton, 1 Cedar Falls or Oelwoin." Lost Unit Charles City lost its entire offensive unit but 13 lettermen are . back. Standouts are Carl Hansen, \ Jim Asleson, Paul Arndt and i Clyde Shirley. ' Cedar Falls, the 11)58 champion, has a new coach in Kd Lyons but only two returning lettermen, Jerry Lewis and Bob Kuehn. I Top prospects lor the Tigers include Bed Smith, Allen Rozn, Ron Fletcher and Dennis Darner. I Harry Anderson, new Oelwein I coach, faces a rebuilding chore. Oelwein lost 14 of its 1058 lettermen, including back Terry Chandler and most of the starting I line. ; Figlu lettermen from last year's I 'uiiiierup team return at Oelwein. i Standouts include back Doug Hal- j sled, quarterback Ken Kappmeyer and end Tom Fick.
