its sensational 31-20 upaet over Olen
Ullin. The Phantoms defeated the
Mandan Papooses 44-23 in a hard
fought semi-final game that kept the
crowd on its feet throughout the
match.
Hettinger and Bucyrus were final
ists in the district contest at Hetting
er, but desired to play on a neutral
floor.
Play Fast BaU
Displaying a fast and clever brand
of ball the Phantoms outclassed the
Washburn quint in every department
of the game. The Phantoms held a
5-3 advantage at the end of the first
period and increased their lead to
16-7 at half-time.
The Washburn squad came back in
the second half with an almost im
pregnable defense through which the
Phantoms were unable to penetrate
until early in the fourth quarter. The
Washburn quint scored one field goal
in the third quarter while holding the
Phantoms scoreless.
In the final quarter, however, the
Phantoms, after tiring their oppon
ents, were able to sink nine field
goals and one free throw while their
opponents were held to three counters
fiom the field.
The game was marked throughout
by close-guarding and accurate shoot
ing.
Chesworth Stars
Chesworth, burly Washburn center,
dogged the trail of Shaky Schaum
berg and held him to nine points
while counting six for the Washburn
quint.
To win the right to enter the finals
the Phantoms put up a stiff first
lvalf fight to conquer the Papooses.
The Mandan five opened the scor
ing and held its opponents to a 12-6
lead at half-time, but wgs unable to
shoot with any consistency in the
latter half. Partridge and Jarvis
were outstanding for the Papooses
while none of the Phantoms was out
standing in the semi-final round.
Intense rivalry featurad the Het
tlnger-Bucyrus game. The Hettinger
quint led 6-3 at the end of the first
period and increased their advant
age to 12-5 at half-time.
Hettinger leads
The Bucyrus team, led by the tall
Nesja, attempted a rally in the third
quarter but boosted their total only
to nine while the Hettinger quint
raised its total to 16. In the final
period the Hettinger quint held the
Bucyrus five to two field goals.
Shults and Eneberg Were outstand
ing for Hettinger while Nesja and
Gallagher led the Bucyrus attack.

DEMONS LEAVE FOR DISTRICT TANGLE WITH MAX AT WASHBURN
Yanks Still Have Murderers’ Row
Expect Expensive Athletes Will
Have Good Seaton Under
New Club Manager
St. Petersburg, Fla., March 13.—UP)
—The New York Yankees still have
the most expensive athlete in baseball
and the batting punch sufficient to
terrify most pitchers.
They still have spectators appeal.
Otherwise, their case remains open to
argument and it is just a wild guess
where they will finish in this year's
American league race. They were
third in 1930.
Mane Joe McCarthy, late of the
Cubs, now undertaking at least a two
year term as manager, has inherited
an assortment of great ball players
led by Babe Ruth, a flock of pitchers
of all sices and capabilities, plus a
few choice problems. If he’s worried,
Mane Joe doesn’t manifest it.
The Yankees have floundered since
the death of Miller Huggins. In Ruth
and Combs of the outfield, Gehrig
and Lazzeri of the infield they still
have the main bogs of Huggins’ last
championship club. Otherwise the
shuffling process is still on.
Have Strong Hitters
This early in the training program,
It appears the veteran Flo Bewevcko,
one of the greatest American league
lnflelders with Cleveland, may solve
McCarthy’s infield puezle. The Ala
baman has shown great form, at bat
and afield. If he fits in at third, the
infield will be rounded out with Tony
Lazzeri at second, Lyn Lory at short
and Lough Gehrig on first. If not,
Lazzeri likely will cover third and
Ben Chapman receive the assignment
at second base.
The only debatable outfield post is
left field. Allen (Dusty) Cooke, if he
has found himself, will get the call,
but he will have to outhlt and out
hustle Sammy Byrd, one of the few
ball players who can beat Babe Ruth
at golf, k'yrll Hoag, the Sacramento
recruit, can hit but does not yet seem
ready for a regular post.
Old man Ruth himself admits that
at 224 pounds he is in grand condi
tion, ready for a big yoar. He looks
it and he is hitting the qew and sup
posed less lively ball with all his ac
customed vehemence. Genterfield
belongs to the Kentucky colonel,
Earle Combs.
Dickey to Catch
With BiU Dickey as backstop-in
chief, the Yankees have at least six
regulars capable 04* hitting well over
.300.
Pitching is, worrying the experts
more than McCarthy, although
George Plpgras, star right hander,
will not be recovered sufficiently from
an appendicitis operation to start the
season.
“Why should we worry?” responded
Joe. “We have a great right hander
in Charley Ruffing and another in
Plpgras, who will be ready early. We
have two seasoned left handers in
Ed Wells and Herb Fennock, another
good southpaw in Vernon Gomez.”
The twirling problem seems to cen
ter around Gordon Rhodes, up again
from Hollywood; Big Boy Sharld and
Henry Johnson. These three right
handers all have had experience. It
they settle down and produce consist
ently, the club’s pitching should be
the best in years.
Of the pitching rookies, McCarthy
expects results from John Allen, re
called from Jersey City and possibly
Phil Weinert, from Louisville.
With the veteran Cy Perkins for
utility catching, a third string back
stop will be picked from Arndt Jor
gens, Bill Karlon and Tom Pvldcn.
Jimmy Reese will remain an infield
reserve but BUI Werber, ex-college
shortstop, probably will get another
year’s seasoning.
Illinois Rejects
Butler s Entry
Latter School Has Boon Sus
pended by North Central
Association
Chicago, March 13— (ff) —The West
ern Conference is preparing to fight
the North Central Association of Col
leges and Secondary Schools over the
question of control of athletic affairs
—but is observing the latter organ
ization’s wishes until the battle be
comes an open one.
This was demonstrated Friday
when it was learned that the Uni
versity of Illinois had rejected the
entry of Butler university athletes in
the annual relay carnival Saturday.
Butter was suspended by the North
Central because its endowment had
fallen below a prescribed amount.
The North Central association will
hold its meeting next Titekdey and
Wednesday, and its report on findings
from investigation of athletic affairs
In Illinois. Minnesota and Ohio in

BERUNGER WILL SEEK TITLE
IN ILLINOIS RELAY CARNIVAL
But of Collegt Stars to Appear
in Premier 1931 Indoor
Track Event
Champaign, HI., March 13.—(/P) —
Barney Berlinger of Pennsylvania,
the most versatile track performer
In the land, will seek his third
straight Illinois relay carnival all
round championship Saturday—and
barring accidents or the appearance
of a super-athlete, seems certain of
it.
The strapping Penn star will be
right at home in four of the seven
aU-round events and can do well
enough in the others to assure vic
tory under ordinary circumstances.
He tosses the 16-pound shot more
than 48 feet, pole vaults better than
13 feet, high jumps around 6 feet, 2
inches, and has bettered 23 feet in
the broad jump.
He won the event in 1929 and came
back last year to set a new record of
6,070 points, and with competition,
has a chance to improve the mark
a second time. His opposition is ex
pected to come from Everett Utter
back, Pittsburgh negro star, who fin
ished second last year, and Douglas
of Grinnell, winner of fourth place
in the 1930 event.
The meet, the blue ribbon indoor
relay offering of the country, has
drawn ait entry list of nearly 700
athletes representing 58 universities
and colleges, including a number of
defending tltleholders. The Big Ten
will be minus Purdue only, while the
big six, Missouri Valley and little
nineteen conferences will be repre
sented. The south, east and south
west have entered scattering candi
dates.
