( I Met u re by FRANKUN COLLEGE BASKETBALL SQUAD rrauUlin. Ind., March 6. The Franklin College- basketball team has just closed the most successful year in the history of the institution. By going through the entire season with a clean slate, with the exception of an early s.ason defeat by Indiana in a ga,ine from which freshmen were barred, the Franklin team won the Indiana intercollegiate championship, and because of her defeat of Butler College and Wabash College is given the title of mid-Western net champions. Franklin defeated Butler tw ice. Wabash twice and Amars twice. Butler holds victories over Chicago. Northwestern. Wisconsin, Purdue and Notre IJaine, conquerors of Iowa, the conference champs. Wabash held the national intercollegiate title, and the Omars, by defeating the New York Celts, held the national independent championship. Four of the first six men are freshmen and member of the Franklin High School team, which tor three consecutive jears won the Indiana High School basketball championship. Another member of the first six also played on that team the first year it won the championship. They all will be at Franklin again next year along with Coach GHz Wagner, the coach made famous by four consecutive championships in the State known for its basketball teams. The members of the team are; reading from Ibe left: Top row: Petcrman, Ballard, Gant, Assistant Coach Duggan, B. Friddle, Kicharson, Coach Wagner. Second row: Woods, Yandivier. C.

Miss Lewis for Wesleyan made four of the nine points. Misa llarned pitched three fouls and Miss Hardin made two counts for the winning score on a pretty field goal.

He 'has built up a tighting machine for the University which has won recognition from all the teams it has played. He had a group of inexperienced girla as a nucleus and has done wonderfully with them. The season has been a successful one in spite of the fact that only one-third of the contests have ended in victories. A victory Is not the only goal. In the games lost the fighting Cardinals have gained the admiration and praise of their opponents for their clean sportsmanship and perfect team work. Their passing has baffled many of the stronger teams. The Cardinal girls are looking forward to next season when they fully expect to bring back to Louisville the State-title which was annexed by the basketball team of 10"2.

Town and Country Topcoats For Spring $35 Mrs. Mallory Eliminated By Miss Cadie Molla and Suzanne Not Likely To Meet Disappointed Fans Say Molla Didn't Try Mcntone, France, March 6 (Associated Press). All hope of a fourth meeting between Suzanne Lenglen and Mrs. Mallory went a-glimmering- today when the American champion was eliminated in the second round of the women's singles in the lawn tennis tournament by Miss Cadle of England. This was Mrs. Mallory's first appearance in the singles in this series and the English representative defeated her, 6-0, 7-5. The American champion had no excuse for her defeat, as she displayed about the poor est brand of tennis she has ever shown on the Riviera. Her loss today settled once for all japped at an summer the Question of supremacy between Mrs. Mallory and Lenglen. and Sioiicr proofed n oi BODES DAPiprO IX, ST ARKS V rouaXH WALNUT if an American player is to challenge Suzanne's right to the world's tennis crown this year it will not be Mrs. Mallory. Plajrd Her Worst.

Then Mrs. Mallory dropped j the other five games by hitting out of bounds rr netting. Mrs. Mallory's defeat at the hands j of Mrs. Satterthwaite, tho English i woman, at Monte Carlo last week, caused no surprise to tennis followers: but there probably were not ten sp"ctV.ors cut of the between 2,000 and iJ.OOO at the courts today who conceded the Lnglish girl, a chance-of winning. Expected To Win. Mrs. Mallory's friends still felt certain that she would carry twe sets and win the game, especially when she led 2-love in the first game: but Miss Cadlc evened matters and then ennm inri the American champion 5-3. Here Mrs. Mallory showed her old ! time f ghtinsr spirit for the firs, and j only time during the match and i brought the score to five-al!. Miss j Cadle. however, wen the next twoi games with ease and took the set, j 7-3. Numerous unkind souls m the stancis averted that Mrs. Mailory was not trying to win; that she preferred k-sing to an unknown player rather t haii possibly meet with crushing defeat at the hands of Lenglen next Thursday. But in justice to Mrs. Mal lory the experts expressed the opinion that she did her best but simply "was not there." Miss Cadle previously had never played in a championship tournament and tonight seemed absolutely overawed to be numbered among the few women players who .have, won matches from Mrs. Mallery since she bocamci a champion. The Unglish girl's style- is very primitive baseline tennis, smc. long drives to the base line with an occasional chop right over the net. This shot never failed to catch Mrs. Mallory napping. Miss Cadle's lack-hand is weak and she has practically no service tc speak of. Mrs. Mallery took her defeat good-naturedly. Tonight she announced that shp was going through with her programme of playing the women's doubles with Miss Blake, and the mix- when they could cover 100 yards in 13 1-2 seconds, broad jump 33 feet, high jump 4 feet 2 inches and vault 5 feet, the scoring being under the classification "junior high school standard.'' The "senior high school standard group" composed of youths of 1" and IS years, would be required to run 100 yards in 13 seconds, broad jump 14 feet, high Jump 4 feet -1 inches, and vault 5 feet 2 inches, to achieve the rating "excellent." College Standard. The "college standard," 19 to 20 years, makes 12 3-0 seconds for the 100 yards, 15 feet for the broad jump 4 feet 6 inches for the iiigh jump and 5 feet 4 inches for the vault, the requirement of a ratine of "excellent," white the "varsity athlete standard," the Highest rating, is 31 2-o seconds for the 100-yard event, IS feet for the broad jump, o feet for the high jump and 5 feet 30 inches for .tiie vault to be scored as "excellent." "The fundamental purpose of the tests," said the department's announcement, "is an effon to raise the physical standard of the youth of Mjr country and to initiate action which, it is hoped, will result in eradicating many of the numerous physical defects which exist in our young men." All Will Participate. l or this purpose the tpsts will be. camps, all those attending being required to participate. The -scores by camps will be made public to stimulate improvement in a competitive way. Adoption of the same standards generally in the country is expected to lead toward "mass participation in athletics." Slcoiil to The Courier-Journal. Bardsuwn, Ky., March 6.

WHAT'S RIGHT IN GOLF " By In nis Brown 'Coi.jrifhf. 1025. by Sol Metzsrr.) Q. Will you kindly settle a point thai came up in a match at our club recently? Playing a blind second shot over a hill, a player hit a direction post and his ball bounded off to the side of the fairway and into a. bunker, lie claimed a right to lift out of the bunker, or else to go liaok and play the stroke over. Is that right? A. He is wrong in both claims under all rule. If lie had any idea that be might hit the direction stake, he was entitled to have it removed. But once having plaed the ball, he was not entitled to lift without pen alty or to play the stroke over. Q. In a single match A drove his ball into quite a pond of casual water. The ball stopped six feet from one side of pond, but fully thirty yards from where it first crossed the edge of the water. In dropping out he claimed the right to drop opposite where the ball lay. B claimed he had to go behind the water to drop W ho was right? A. The rule does not require the player to drop back of casual water. It merely specifies that he must drop within two club lengths of the water, not nearer to the hole. All codes alike. Q- In a medal plav round 1 inderstand that on the putting green, the player whose ball is farther from the hole has a right to ask the other to lift or play first, if the former thinks the ball will interfere with his putt. Suppose "the nearer p'aj'er declines to lift, is he liable to any penalty under any code? A. Yes. He is disqualified from further play. Send in your questions to Innis Brown.
