Managers PITTSBURGH.—</P>-A long 'smoul- dering controversy over football at Pitt hroke 'yWe 'open Tuesday, with Chancellor John G. Bowman assailing interference "from unofficial managers who want to si* in 'the press box." Bowman's outburst preceded by an hour a charge by Pitt's Varsity Letter Club, comprising 900 former affifefes, that he had rejected a proposal for 'an "impartial" investigation of afldetis affairs. The chancellor, in erne «f his infrequent addresses 'to a student assembly, turned suddenly from generalties to "a hot /blast at critics of the -Bowman! ,. . .... . - . on strictly amateur basis" a year ago. His speech Apparently was provoked by 'the student newspaper's demand for an explanation of ihe athletic situation and reports of a/flireatehed strike of freshmen football players. "The freshmen complained they were "being "dun- ned ' for payment of tuition notes, which they claimed they signed as n formality. Angrily, Bowman denied that he was unsympathetic to football or unfriendly to Coach Jock Sutherland, plbdged continuance of the "code," and blamed athletic troubles on "unofficial managers" inside and outside the university. He added: "Only half an hour ago I received n threat, and I have received numerous others, telling me that I must back down in my stand on Pitt's athletic policy or take the consequences." Dr. Norman C. Ochsenhirt, head of the letter club, disclosed that he called Bowman shortly before the speech. Ochsenhirt declared Bowman refused the suggestion for an investigation and declined action upon a memorandum handed him by club representatives on November 17. The memorandum charged Pitt's athletic affairs were in "a terrible muddle," laid the blame on inefficient management, and appealed to Bowman "for God's -sake take hold of this mess [Prescott Expects ToughGrid flame Wolves to Clash 'Witri the Strong Bauxite Team Wednesday Night PRSCOTT, Ark.-The "Bauxite Miners will meet Prescott's Curly Wolves here Wednesday night, and PreSebtt football fans are expecting a scramble what is a scramble for the visiting foe has a very impressive record having racked up eight wins but one defeat, and has had only Vi paints scored against-it.

Dwight Campbell was another woman's husband. If someone had told her, a year ago, that she, Judy Alcott, "What do you want me to do? Join you in lecturing?" "Stop it, Diane. I—this is serious.

Marvel insisted on talking about her interior decorator and her new clothes and the housewarming that the other women were uneasily aware was premature. Magda Hamilton and Diane talked of their children. Marvel said, "I don't see how you keep 'it up! Aiwsys talking about .babies! It seems to me that if they didn't have any teeth, it would be more remarkable than merely cutting them." She tried to make the remark sound light and humorous, but it fell flat. No one laughed. At four o'clock she ' cried, "Mercy, I've got to run! I have a te'a date downtown, You'll excuse me?" They were delighted to see her go, Judy knew. And not once during the afternoon had the conversation turned to the subject Judy had hoped it would. That was odd, because usually politics of a naval description hogged much of the time. Who might be passed over. Was it true that this wife or that had pulled a boner at a reception. That sort of thing. Jane Bostwick looked out of the window at where Marvel was maneuvering her long, shining car out of the tangle of small, elderly Fords. Jane said, "I suppose I'm jealous." * * « ^^ND then the post-mortem began. Lieutenant Sharp's wife, a girl who had been a schoolteacher in the east, and who had" been shy and unsure of herself at first, said, "I feel sorry for her. But she's got it different from most brides. She thinks she's "better than the Navy. I thought I wasn't good enough." "I know one thing," said Magda Hamilton. "I could hardly keep myself from telling her not to order top much food for that housewarming. Nobody will come." "Why not?" asked Judy quietly. "She didn't call on the commandant's wife, she didn't even return Mrs. Lane's tea. And that's his skipper, remember! That awful toady, Gertie Hatchett, won't come because she takes a slight to her superiors as a slight to herself. I can't. Tommy won't go. He says this girl is a vixen. The exec's wife told me in a roundabout way that she won't come. Who will be there?" "I will," said Judy. There was a shocked silence. Then Diane said sensibly, "No you won't, Judy. Not if—" "I will," said Judy again. "She may not know much about the amenities, but she's Dwight Campbell's wife, and he's a friend of mine. He's a friend of all of you. Mrs. Lane is very fond of him. I'm sure she'll come, returned tea or none. Mother certainly has nothing against her, and if Daddy ;oes, everybody else will, too!" That was true enough. The silence deepened. Judy plunged rashly. "Admiral Alcott will be there," she said. "I'll see to itl" CAST OF- "CHARACTERS JUDY A L C O T T —ndmlrnl'M flntiKhter.

CHAPTER XVI was not easy to tell her mother that she had openly championed Marvel, openly asserted that Admiral Alcott would appear at the housewarming. But she stumbled through it, and her mother said pityingly, "~ see, Judy. That's what Dwight asked when he came the other night?" She ruffled the girl's silky hair. "I know you want to do your best for him. Very well, then. I—I'll speak to your father."So the thing was settled, and the night of the housewarming a long line of cars crawled to a stop in front of Mar^gl's house. Judy wondered if Marvel even knew how close her party had come to failure. But when she and Jack ley were inside, greeting '^HE house Ihnt Marvel's decorator had evolved was a thing of black floors, angled' sofas, extremely low chairs, and whole walls of mirror glass. There were white gazelles on glass-topped tables; white rugs in little splotches on the dark floor; gleaming chromium. "It looks like a machine shop," said Jack. "Hush!" It was really imposing, if you cared for modernity. But Judy didn't. She had always liked old mahogany and Virginia sofas. , Kay Rosetor, on being presented to Admiral Alcott, informed him that her last picture had been a Navy picture. "We had the most distinguished Englishman playing the role of Admiral." "I don't doubt," said Judy's father solemnly, "but that he looked the part much more than I do." Kay Roseter's stiff-lashed, hazol eyes opened wide. "I didn't mean that at all! Dear me, Admiral, I am really too much in awe of to view the patio. Judy thought "She might as well have boughl a new homo. She's practically made this one over." Jack Hanley, who had been sticking pretty close to Judy all evening, said in a low voice, "1 feel sick. Let's stay out here and watch the stars." "What's wrong with you?" she asked. "I've had a stifT dose of snobbery," he replied. "Those friends of hers are poisonous." "You simply don't know them. They're not your kind." "That's The rarified air is you to indulge in—" "Don't be, my dear, ly human." I'm mere- their hostess, she realized that Marvel didn't have the faintest inkling Such a thing had never occurred to her. She was really magnificent in her self-assurance. And there were other people present. Outside friends. A tall, thin girl with scarlet fingernails and a queer, short hairdo. "Kay Roseter, the cinema star," said Marvel. "You'll love her. She's so unique. "This is Cary Tennant," Marvel said, a moment later, and Judy looked up into the narrow, sardonic eyes of the man she had seen twice before. In the Paradise, and at the wedding. "How do you do?" Judy murmured. "Charmed," said Mr. Tennant, and hie thin face smiled. But his eyes didn't smile.. "All the naval regalia makes me feel just a bit effete," he said to Jack. "Yc •. Navy boys are such virile blokes/' Jack said', "Hornyhanded, hairy- chested," and grinned. But Judy sensed that he didn't like Cary fennanjt any bettgc #*an ihe did. "But Marvel says the whole sot- up is too, too overpowering. She had me actually believing I'd have to curtsey." Dwight hastily put in a respectful word or two, and Kay Rosetei drifted off. Captain and Mrs. Han- Lahe, who were politely trying not to stare at the hooting, shouting group across the room, came up. Judy said, "I don't believe I've met all the people. Dwight said, "That's O&ry Tennant's group, making the noi.sc. They're nice when you know them. Shall I take you over there?' * * * TUDY found that the center of v the merrymaking */as a young debutante called "Slim" Jarrett. She was ugly in an animated way, and Judy guessed that her personality was famous among her friends. She was that sort. "Slim" pounced on Judy. "You're the typical Navy girl Dwight was telling us about. You'd be at home in a trunk, or in Guam, or in the jungle, isn't that right?" "You've got me mixed with the Englishman who dresses for dinner," said Judy. Dwight grinned. Judy met killing me. And say, I don't think the skipper liked the sound of a remark Cary Tennant passed." Judy said crisply, "It's silly to attach too much importance to those things. They're Marvel's friends." "So what?" * * * J-JE had not yet mentioned the fact that Judy was responsible for her father and mother's presence. But sho knew he understood the stale oC affair^, and. while she seated herself in a white metal chair, she waited for him to speal*-. But he didn't. He said, "You're a gallant kid, Judy. Did I ever tell you I like you?" "You told me." "So what again, eh?" She didn't answer,. The rest had gone back into the house, now. There was only the sound of their voices, muffled a little, and the warmth of the night, and a smell of flowers from the garden that reminded her curiously of the wedding in the church. Tlien they heard footsteps coming out toward them. A woman's voice said, "But they're impossible! - They're positively provincial. If that's the Navy, I'll take New York's East Side." Judy stiffened. Jack was sit- Texarkana Meets Blevins Gridders Final Contest of Season Will Be Played at Blevins TEXARKANA.-The Catholic Hifih Eagles will play their final game of the 1938 football season Thursday morning at 10 o'clock where they meet the Blevins High School eleven.
