Heavyweight Wrestling Ranks Prove Good Dumping Ground for 'Has-Beens' By JERRV BRONFIELD | NKA Service Sports Writer -f CHICAGO.—King Lcvinsky, who! made his first belligerent moves slapping wet herring onto tlie scales in Maxwell street, thinks maybe he'll become a rassler and gather together some coin of the realm. By coming up with this brain-storm the Kingfish just about admits he's washed up as a box-fighter, so wliy shouldn't he pick up some change the way football players, has-been pugs, and circus clowns are doing? And anyway, when it comes to clowns, who is there to contest the Kiniifish's qualifications? Lei's see now—it was Lou Gohrig who murmured something about get- ling in at least five more years in Ihe National League when his American League playing days were concluded. Without getting into to much difficulty you can draw the .same parallel with rassling and the other sports. Levinsky Understands All that is required in the heave and haul business nowadays is to first make a name for yourself in another line of endeavor. Then when you're all washed up, you become a heavyweight rassling aspirant. That is, provided you're large enough. Lcvinsky, despit the state of whack- incss he might be in from sloppong so much leather, is quick to see his possibilities-. Gus Sonnenberg was just another football player with the Providence Steam Rollers until one night he cracked he could "throw those two big bums right oula the arena." It was just six falls and three Shakos later that he found himself world champion. Jim McMillen, who as a guard blocked the pins from underneath various and sundry people who tried to stop Reil Grange at Illinois, look up wrestling on the advice of Bob Zuppke, who told him it would give him more agility on the gridiron. Jim wont on to become one <>! the more .successful professionals in both lines of activity. Jumping JIM.' Savoldi made many a first down for Notre Dame, was bounced for being married secretly, found his name in headlines, and capita I i/ed on it in ra-ssling. Whiskers Better A mighty behemoth by the name of Frank Leavitt from Hell's Kitchen in New York was a policeman until he found that by growing a luxuriant set of whiskers and changing his name to Man Mountain Dean, he could coin n barrel of dough making odd noises and many faces. So maybe Levinsky has the right idea. He made more than $300.000 during his career as a fighter, but he wasted or spent it as rapidly as he made it. And if it takes a clown to make good as a rassler, the King is a cinch. Early this year Levinsky went to England to battle Jack Doyle. He attended a lunehcpn jn London where the toaslmaster raised his glass and said: "Gentlemen, the King!" The herring slappcr from Maxwell street stood up and took a bow. When bigger and better clowns come along, Ringling Bros, and Barnum and Bailey will have them. The Rose Bowl Teams Have Been There Often Rice Starts Drill for Bowl Contest Owls Are at Full Strength for First Time in Weeks HOUSTON, Texns. - (/P) — At full strength for the first lime in weeks, the Rice Institute Owls, champions of the-Southwest Conference, will begin practice Wednesday for the Cotton Bowl game <it Dallas on New Year's Day against the University of Colorado. Light workouts are scheduled for the first few days and hard scrimmage will follow next week, Coach Jimmy Kilts said. The Owls have not been on the practice field since th'ey defeated Southern Methodist University at Dallas and won the championship. Doug (Scat) Sulivan, who missed the Southern Methodist game because of a shoulder injury, has recovered and will bo ready. Sullivan is one of the speediest backs on the Rice team. New plays built around big Ernie Lain, line rammer and pass thrower, and Ollie Cordill, elusive runner and punter, are being worked out, Kitts said. Cordill, for the first few days, will brush up on his punting. The Texans are expected to keep the ball away from the speedy Byron (Whizzer) While, Colorado's Ail-American back. The team will got a two-day holiday for Christmas and then resume work. Kills has not decided definitely when he will take the tenm to Dallas. Tickets for Hie game are about exhausted here and approximately 8000 Houstonians are expected to accompany the team to North Texas. Fort Worth Headquarters BOULDER, Colo.— (/I 3 ) —Colorado University's undefeated football eleven will invade Texas next week, nearly two weeks ahead of their Cotton Bowl clash with Rice Institute at Dallas on New Year's Day. The players voted Tuesday to leave Sunday morning, right after a "victory dinner" to be held by the alumni in Denver Saturday night. They will make their headquarters at Ft. Worth, 38 miles from Dallas. Officials of Texas Christian University, located at Fort Worth, have offered the Rocky Mountain Conference champions the use of their field and other facilities. The Buffaloes' All-Amcrican star, Byron (Whizzer) White, may not be with the team when it climbs aboard a Texas-bound train. White, a Phi Beta Kappa student who led the' nation's point makers with 122 tallies during the regular season, will take local examinations for the RJiodes scholarship he says he wants far more than grid recognition or a professional NEW LIFE IN THE LOOP HON DO you LIKE THE.

L$,U,- By HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NBA Service Harry Kipke's summary dismissal by Michigan is additional, evidence that even a coach "of a simon-pure college must win. Schools shout purity, but demand results. Several explanation arc given for the Kipko airing, but the real reason is that Michigan lost its punch. It appears that the Wolverines won too frequently and too long, before the crash come in 1934, for their administrators and supporters to adjust themselves to any other condition. So Kipke, under whom Ann Arbor bagged Big Ten championships or ties in four of his first five years and copped only 10 games in the next four, goes just as he seemed to have taken a new grip on the situation, and with - his team deinitely on the upgrade. Members of the faculty, genuine and synthetic alumni, and students yelled for Kipke's scalp as they do at any crossroads school with football ambitions. The only difference between the eases of Kipke and Harry Mehre, who spent 14 years at Georgia, is that the latter beat the old grads to it by resigning. With Kipke undoubtedly will go Col. Heartly W. (HunkI Anderson, who was brought up from North Carolina State to rise or fall with the one-time All-America back and kicker. Pure No Mailer How Painful Michigan bagged only one engagement in lil.'iG. The Maize and Blue edged out four of eight opponents in typical Michigan style in 1937. That would indicate that Kipke's coaching was highly satisfactory during the past campaign, and Anderson had them raving about the Wolverine line before and after the rout by Minnesota and until the fourth consecutive pasting touchdown-mined because it has in Byron (Whi/./.er) White, the scholarly quarterback, the greatest climax runner in conference history with the lone exception of Dutch Clark. And Clark, in all of his three years at Colorado College, never had a line to work behind such as White has had this season. The learn knows how to block, which lias been partly responsible for White's long scoring gallops, and how to tackle, which has helped to restrict their eight opponents' combined scores to 2(i points. by Ohio State evidently clinched the argument for the dissenters. Indeed, it was the Kipke-drilled outfits' inability to handle the Gophers and Buckeyes in traditional contests that unseated the head man. At both Michigan and Georgia, college authorities, in public utterance of policy, favored moderation and no undue emphasis, and at the same time expected to play hard schedules including intersectional productions. Naturally, the students and old grads wanted many victories, few or no defeats. And so did some of the college authorities. Kipke's exit proves once more that the benerable Fielding H. Yost still retains the upper hand in the athletic sot-up at Michigan. Critics among the alumni have loudly shouted that Yost interferes with the coaching staff. At the close of last season, they petitioned that the staff be let alone, and it was announced that Kipke would have a free rein. One explanation of Kipke's getting the gate is that Michigan still was a bit apprehensive about what it evidently considered something of a scandal. Simply Ran Out of Good Boys Whatever scandal existed was self created, for it was the board of athletic control itself which announced that subsidization was suspected in connection with certain fershmen. Inspired by the presence of Tom Harmon, a four-letter lad of Gary, Ind., and three or four yuongsters from Kiski School, it is said that official criticism was directed at Kipke. It is explained that the board also believed that rumors and cross-rumors, plus discontent in many quarters, would do Kipke and Michigan football no good . . . that Kipke probably would be under too great a strain working under such pressure. At any rate, the reason the board advances unofficially . . . that Kipke didn't seem to get the most out of the material at hand and was generally inefficient ... is somewhat superficial at best. It is unreasonable to believe that general inefficiency would cloak a coach as young as Kipke with such suddenness. Kipke illustrated what he could do with material from 1930 to 1933, in- elusive. He was u young genius sought by Yale then. So the more logical answer is that Harry Kipke is just another coach who ran out of the type of boys who make coaches great—and that Michigan can't take it.
