Big Ten Authorities Favor Loop Crown to Bowl Play By ED SAINSBURY Chicago, (U.R)—Big Ten football [authorities agreed Wednesday that [while the chance to play in the [Rose Bowl may be important, the •midwest teams prize most highly Jthe conference grid championship. A United Press survey of •coaches and athletic directors TJIbrought nearly a unanimous an'" Iswer that the Big .Ten crown was Ifar more highly prized than the [post season bowl spot. Only 3 officials, Coach Bennie jOosterbaan of Michigan, Coach (Ivy Williamson of Wisconsin and Athletic Director Fritz Crisler of Michigan declined to state which they wanted most, the conference title or the bowl bicl. "The most important thing to us is winning the Big Ten title in football and in other sports as often as we can," Coach Ray Eliot of Illinois said. "I do not believe going to the Rose Bowl is more imoortant than a Big Ten title." Harry Stuhldreher, former Wisconsin coach and now athletic director, said he would not oppose Badger participation in the bowl but that the decision would be made by the university athletic board. Coach Wes Fesler of Ohio State said he "would vote that the Big Ten champs go to the Rose Bowl each -year if one team had to go 5 years in succession," while the Buckeyes' Athletic Director Dick Larkins said the pact should be changed so that only the first or 2nd place team could go, and no team twice in a row. Athletic Director Paul Brechler of Iowa said, he didn't want to "start an argument" at present and that the question undoubtedly would be taken up at the next conference meeting. Dodgers, Cords Open 3-Gome Series Riegel Favored as Play Starts in Western Amateur St. Louis, (/P)—Defending Champion Robert "Skee" Riegel was definitely the favorite as match play got going in the 47th Weste r n Amateur golf tournament Wednesday. Riegel, who gets his mail at Upper Darby, Pa., but represents the Tulsa, Okla. T Country club, didn't play for the medal in the two 18- hole qualifying rounds completed Tuesday. However, his bonafide practice stretch was better than any of his competitors. John "Pick" Wagner, 35-year- old -auditor 'from Wilmette, 111., won the medal with a 145, 3 over par, on the 6,505-yard Bcllerive Country club course." Riegel, who played the round and putted out every hole, made the outgoing 9 in 36, even par, and came in 2-under-33. Wagner tacked a 36-35—71 Tuesday to his opening 74. Clancy Miller, Atchison, Kans., automobile dealer, had a 71 Monday, but had to settle for-76 and 147 Wednesday. It was good for runner- up medal honors. Bo Winninger, Stillwater, Okla., Jack Geiss, St. Louis, the Missouri state champion, and H. W. Hardin, Contenders in Both Leagues Win Tuesday ByMlALPH RODEN Associated Press Sports Writer The knock down, drag out battle being waged by the St. Louis Cardinals and the Brooklyn Dodgers for the National league pennant comes to a head Wednesday.

Pep Successfully Defends Crown in Featherweight Class Waterbury, Conn., (/P) — Offers poured in on Featherweight Champ Willie Pep Wednesday after his easy 7-round kayo triumph over Eddie Compo. Unlike the savage scrap in which he recaptured the title from Sandy Saddler last February, Wily Willie emerged unmarked Tuesday night. Al Weill, matchmaker of the In- ;ernational Boxing Club of New York offered Pep 3 opponents for Madison Square Garden bouts and ou Viscusi, Pep's manager, said he was considering another for a title fight at St. Louis. Weill wants Willie to fight either the winner of Friday's Terry Young - Enrique Bolanos scrap; Maxie Docusen or Ray Famechon, the European champ from France who is due here soon. It would be a non-title fight on either Oct. 28 or Nov. 11. The crown defense would be made against Charley Riley, St. Louis Negro. Viscusi said he could not be any more definite than that right now. Nothing was said about a 3rd Pep - Saddler punchfest. That would be a real pay night. For his victory over Compo, a :ormer sparring partner whom Pep polished off in 41 seconds of :he 7th, Willie scored financially, :oo. The uneven match drew a surprisingly large crowd of 10,722 for a gross of $39,931. Compo, who. weighed 124i to 126 for the champ, just wasn't in Willie's league.
