By EARL HILLIGAN CHICAGO, .(£>).—.Sophomore stars are shooting across the Big Ten basketball front these "tune- "g days," with the likelihood that first-year men will play big parts in deciding a championship race which looms as one of the hardest fought in several seasons. The Northwestern Wildcats, victors over Carleton. Pittsburgh and Notre Dame, have a brilliant young star in Bob Voigts, sophomore who is working well with lour veterans. His ball handling and passing from a guard position has featured the Wildcat victories and, on performance thus far, Northwestern appeared to be a strong bidder for the Western conference title.

Mason City fans are perfectly i familiar with the pivot-post style of offense . . . because it carried the Mohawks to a state championship, with big Howard Stoccker earning an all-stale rating as he handled the assignment.

Fifteen boys' basketball learns will begin their season's schedule Saturday in the Y M. C. A. Membership league, it was announced Fiday by Physical Director Herb Templin. Seven Class A squads wi 1 compete in one circuit, while Class B will have two divisions with three grade schools competing in one, while five high school squads battle in the other. Soph Races Hoosiers. A 6 foot sophomore forward, Ben Johnson, is pacing the Indiana offense. In three warmup contests the Jeffersonville, Ind youth scored 33 points, 30 of them on field goals! Iowa has a speedy, snapshooting first-yeai forward in Ben Stephens, while Illinois boasts Louis Boudreau and Tom Nisbet, sophomore forwards who have been playing sensationally. Michigan, which probably will be in the thick of the championship fight, suffered a blow when Danny Smick, promising sophomore center, strained a ligament in his left knee. The Wolverines Friday were heading .(or a series with the University of Washing- tton. Purdue Has Andereon. Gene Anderson, a lanky center, is playing steady ball for Purdue, which shared the 1935 title with Indiana. Saturday night's program involves several stiff res"s for Big J Ten teams. Purdue takss on thej fast.. shifty De Paul university team at Chicago. Northwestern meets Western State Teachers, perennially a formidable band of sharpshooters.

Manhattan. Minnesota takes on Kansas State, Iowa travels to St. Louis for a game with Washinsicr> university and Chicago moets Armour Tech. But Coach Foster didn't like it ... he says this: "I think the three-second rule has done a lot to make a better game of basketball. No longer have we two great big men fighting for position in the pivot area. The gam? is faster with a great number of teams using a third forward in the center position.

Foster has other interesting observations to make. Concerning the Western conference race . . . he says that more teams probably | will be fighting for top honors I • than usual. He picks Indiana, Purdue and Illinois to lead the way, with Northwestern, a close competitor. Northwestern, by the way, has a schedule that does not call for games with Indiana, Purdue and Wisconsin . . . and Bud seems to forget that Iowa is in the league. BADGERS NEAR TOP, TOO The Badger mentor feels that Wisconsin will have a better team than last year . . . "in spite of the facr we have only one senior on the squad." Foster looks for his outfit to be a first-division club, with n "break or two." The Badg- way, polished off their opponents this season, Ball State, North Dakota and Mar- quetto.

FULLERTON, Jr. NEW YORK, (ff)— While preparations are under way to install plaques of the players first selected as baseball's immortals in the diamond hall of fame at Copperstown, N.

The bronze plaques for these five, each showing the player's head in relief and giving a terse summary of his achievements, were turned over Thursday to Alex Cl eland, secretary of the Cooperstown memorial committee.
