Ten Region Three Teams In Contests Hard Tussle Seen in American Fork; Provo Rated Over B. Y. High and Nephi Picked To Tip Springville Competition in the Region Three football divisions, the Alpine and Nebo, starts Friday night, when ten teams of the two leagues play. League play will continue until March 6, when champions of each division will be crowned, barring a tie. After completion of the league competition, the runner-up team from each division will oppose each other on a neutral floor to decide a state tournament berth. Three teams from the region, the champions and the winner of the runner-up playof, go to the tourney. FRIDAY'S SCHEDULE ALPINE DIVISION B. V. High at Provo High. I'lwisunt Grove at Lehi. Lincoln at American Fork. NEBO DIVISION Springville at Nephi. Tintic at Payson. Spanish Fork, bye. A nip-and-tuck battle is expect- od to ensue at American Fork, where the Lincoln Tigers will make their league debut. Pre-seas^n contests have ranked the two clubs about the same strength and not the least interesting angle will be the scoring contest between the two centers, Willard Devitt, American Fork, and Tidd Johnson of the Tigers. Lincoln has a pair of hard-working guards who are expected to make the Forker forwards hump. Provo is rated as too strong for the visiting B. Y. high crew. Although the Bulldogs are crippled by the absence of forward Willis Daniels, who has the scarlet fever, the Wildcats are even more severely crippled, lacking three regulars who are not eligible until the third game. Another even joust is expected between Pleasant Grove and Lehi, neither of which is ranked of title- contending ability this season. However, both clubs have shown marked improvement lately and may make the favorite Provo and American Fork teams get out and . . TODAY & SATURDAY . .

BEGINS SUNDAY RAIN SHIFTS .. xi Bitsy Begins Big Drive LOS ANGELES, Jan. 10 <U.E>- An international field of 224 i golfing luminaries teed off on a soefgy Los Angeles club course between showers today in quest of $1,500 first prize money of the 72-hole Los Angeles open championship. Almost every big money name in golf was present. Heavy showers last night upset the favored lists as heavy driving players assumed a slight edge on a wet course. Until last night experts had narrowed the list of favorites to 10, led by MacDonald Smith, who has won the tournament four times. Smith, however, remained the individual choice to lead the field home when the tournament ends Sunday night. A strong competitor in every major national tourney, the sharpshooting scot has finished out of the money only once in 11 yeras of Los Angeles open competition. Jimmy Hines, Riverside open winner, Vic Ghezzi, the defending champion, and Horton Smith, who captured the Miami Biltmore and Pasadena tournaments, also were favored by many. hustle before the season ends. Nephi is generally favored over Springville. Playing on their own floor the Wasps are doubly dangerous, and their methodical, delayed attack may worry the Red Devils. The SpringvilJe club has a lot of potential power this season, and is the type of team that can do the upsetting act. If the Wasps score as they did against Provo two weeks ago, they can well stand up against any team in the state. Payson is granted a slight edge over Tintic, with an upset far from unlikely. Tintic has improved. But with the Lions on their own floor, led by the flashy Ralph Dai- ton, they should pull but in front. Many critics are picking Spanish Fork to finish second to Nephi in the race, and some are even going so far as to pick the competitors iii the runner-up playoff, Spanish Fork and either American Fork or Lincoln. But until a few games are played it is still far too early for this kind of conjecture. A little bit of a grand tennis player from" Atlanta, Bitsy Grant, the giant killer ot the net, starts the 193G tennis season when he begins defense of his Mianii-Biltmore crown, Jan. G-12. Grant, shown here in unusual action, faces the foremost American stars iu the mf-ellng. as well as ulavers from Cuha and Canada.

By GEORGE KIRKSEY United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK. -an. 10 <ciV—Box- msr in Madison Square Garden, once the world's greatest fight center, was reduced virtually to a minor sport today with the announcement of the garden's new policy of only • occasional fights ^iinng the rest of the winter season. The new policy is the outgrowth rf a feud between the New York State Athletic commission and the garden over a heavyweight bout >>otween Hank Bath, Fort Morgan, Colo., and Red Burman, Baltimore, originally scheduled for tonight. The commission refused to license Bath and his manager. Jack Kearns. and in retaliation the garden called off the whole show. Opposes Boxing— "The commission apparently is trying to drive the garden out of boxing," John Kilpatrick, manager, said. 'All our other sports are flourishing, which shows that we are comoetent promoters. In trying to develop new boxing talent we always have had obstacles to hinder us. Five shows in the past two years have been thrown out by the commission on secret excuses. The ridiculous and highhanded action of the commission on Bath and Kearns is the last ytraw." j The goat of the whole affair JACOBS RATED NO, ONE WOMAN TENNIS PLAYER Allison Wins Top in Men's Amateur Ranking; Grant Moves To Third. NEW YORK, Jan. 10 <U.R>— Wilmer Allison, 31-year-old Texan and Helen Hull Jacobs of Berkeley, Cal., U. S. singles champions last year, have been recommended for ranking as America's topflight tennis stars of 1935. The recommendations, which must be approved by the United States Lawn Tennis association at its annual meeting next month, were made yesterday by the organization's ranking committee. The rankings ran true to expectations in most cases, with young stars dominating a majority of the coveted top 10 positions. Allison, who scored one of 1935's j greatest surprises when he whip- j ped Fred Perry of England in the semi-finals of the American cham- appears to be Hank Bath, the somewhat bewildered young man who until he fought in Chicago recently, had never been east of the Mississippi river. The commission refused to give him a license because he had once been suspended in California. When it was learned that he had been reinstated. General John J. Phelan, commission chairman, held up his license because he had no birth certificate. Kearns also was refused-a license on a technicality. pionships, gained the No. 1 spot for the second, successive year and a position in the first 10 for the eighth straight time. Miss Jacobs retains her leadoff post for the fourth consecutive year. Second place on the men's list went to red-headed Donald Budge of Oakland, Cal., who was ranked ninth in 1934. Budge, although whipped in the American championships by Bryan (Bitsy) Grant of Atlanta, made the runner-up spot on the strength of his fina performance at Wimbledon. Grant moved up from tenth to third—-the highest he ever has rated . Second place on the women's list went to diminutive Mrs. Ethel Brukhardt Arnold of Los Angeles, who returned to major competition last year after a long lay-off. That will be her last amateur ranking, however, for Mrs. Arnold became a professional in Nov. and will make her debut here Saturday night.
