V F W Ak$ Junior Fight Event Here Preparations are being made to launch a bid to bring to Des Moines the 1948 Junior A.A.U. boxing tournament, it was disclosed Tuesday. The Iowa department of the Veterans of Foreign Wars will seek to sponsor the annual event, in which teams from Des Moines and Sioux City participated last year. Lawrence (Buck) Rogers of Kansas City, national athletio director of the V.F.W. who Is visiting In Den Moines, said there is "a very good chance that the Iowa department will be successful in Its bid for the tournament." The 1947 tournament was sponsored by the Jackson County (Kansas City) council of the organization, which plans to be represented at the bidding atXthe annual A.A.U. convention at Omaha early next month. 69 Participated in 1947. Sixty-nine fighters representing 17 cities participated in the 1947 event. Rogers said the V.F.W. will urge that the junior tournament follow the senior event, held annually at Boston's Garden. The senior tournament Includes A.A.U. champions, while junior participation is limited to non-titleholders. Rogers said more entries would be submitted if the junior tournament followed the Boston activities because fighters would not fear injuries which would impair their performance in the senior event. Proposes Dates. The national V.F.W. sports director proposes that the senior tourney be set for the first week in April, with the juniors starting SB Hamilton, Navy Coach FINDS NOTRE DAME WEAKNESS ANNAPOLIS, MD. UP) Navy Coach Tom Hamilton, always a hard man to convince, says he spotted a weakness in the Notre Dame football eleven which' ran over his Middies, 27-0, in Cleveland Saturday. Admitting the Irish have a "devastating .passing attack," Coach Hamilton said Tuesday, "Notre Dame's running game is not dangerous, and there's the weakness. That keeps 'em from being great. "If you stop their passing game, you stop their attack. They didn't hurt us on the ground, but in the air." As for passing, the Navy mentor moaned, "They've got not one, but two outstanding passers in Lujack and Tripucka. Why, Sammy Baugh never looked better than either one against us last week at Cleveland." i - i ',-1 ! -St as ti ram Anderson Says Em 'Definitely Through' (Th Rcgltr'a Iowa New Servlc.) IOWA CITY, IA. Emlen Tunnell, outstanding halfback who declared Tuesday afternoon that he had quit the Iowa football squad, was eager Tuesday night to rejoin the Hawkeyes. -M Tunnell, leading Big Nine pass receiver, went to the home of Coach Eddie Anderson fcte Tuesday night to see if he would be allowed to return. Anderson had gone to bed, so Em will present his plea this morning. "I can't quit," Tunnell said, if I'm allowed io come out." The 22-year-old junior left the practice field in a huff Monday after being rebuked by Frank Carideo, backfield coach, for poor tackling in a drill against freshmen. Em then passed up practice Tuesday and announced that he would return to his home in Radnour Hill, Fenn. Anderson first said that Tunnell would be allowed to return if Em personally requested it. Later, Eddie told reporters: "As far as I'm concerned, Tunnell is through." "We told our squad at the start of the season," Eddie explained, "that if anyone didn't want to take what the rest of the squad was getting in practice, he could turn in his uniform." Tunnell apparently resented the necessity of taking a risk Monday in practice designed to sharpen the Hawkeyes' tackling. After being reprimanded by Ca- "r JV ARM OPERATION FOR DIMAG SEEN SAN FRANCISCO. CAL CD-Joe Di Maggio, New York Yankee outfielder, headed for New York by plane Tuesday night where he probably will have a bone chip removed from his throwing arm. "It looks like an operation," Joe told a reporter Tuesday. "I'm going to see the Yankee's doctor when I get to New York and if he says the arm has to be operated on, then that's that." The chip in Joe's elbow is of long standing, he says. The operation would be the third in the American league player's baseball career. The others didn't slow him up. Joe doesn't think this one will either. "The way I feel," Joe said, "I'll have my best year since the war in 1948. This chip is nothing. I've had it for a long time and it didn't bother me. But this year it moved and gave me so much trouble that I had one good throw a day and that was all." Pollet's Operation 'I'll come out again rideo, Tunnell made a vicious tackle, then strode off the field. "I'd rather get killed on Saturday afternoon than during the week," Km later remarked. Last March Tunnell turned in his suit and quit spring drills, but reappeared two days later. Tunnell explained at the time that he went to Des Moines to straighten out personal affairs with the veterans administration. Anderson said after Tuesday night's practice that Johnny Tedore would probably take over Tunnell's spot at left half. The Hawk boss also indicated that Quarterback Johnny Estes or Bob Smith, who already divides his work between right half and fullback, could step into the position. In practice work, the Hawk-eyes continued to mend their tackling defects and went through a semi-scrimmage in a light rain. Tunnell, the former Toledo university athlete, leads the big Nine in, passes received this year with nine completions for a total of 190 yards and three touchdowns. ,He is second in rushing among the Hawks and heads the team in average yards gained per carry with a 5.4 figure. Scored Against Indiana, Tunnell received the three touchdown passes against Indiana in the Hawks' only Big Nine victory of the season. The speedy Negro also scored Iowa's only marker in the loss to U.C.L.A. That touchdown came on a pass from Quarterback Johnny Estes and a spectacular run. Tunnell, who weighs 185 pounds, came to Iowa after a brilliant record as a back on the Alameda coast guard eleven in California. Capable Ball Carrier.. Last year, his first at Iowa, "The Gremlin" participated in six games and established a rushing average of 3.6 yards in the 49 times he carried the ball. His net yardage ranked twentieth in the Big Nine. On the basis of net gain by TUNNELL Continued on Page Fourteen. BADGERS ROCK FROSH IN DRILL MADISON, WIS.
