The grapplers will not start their fights until 9:15, followini spring opening While the card is a double main event, interest is focused on tho Curtis-Sugai bout.J5oth wrestlers are fast and clevetjlind the ever-popular Sugai is counted upon for one of his sensational performances. The Thomas-Bergeson bout siiould be a close second to the C urtiss-Sugai affair. Bergeson has been one of the steadiest grapplers in Albany since the start of the year, but leans well over on the. -rough side. His last week's choking and towel-hold tactics against Tom Hirai left the fans 111 a humor to see him receive some of the like medicine. Thomas, although billed here before, has uut performed before Albany fans .Wthe question oC-whcthcr he can inpe with BergeW' remains for Friday night. The Curtiss-Sugai bout probably will be as clean and action-packed as the other match is likely to be rough. Sugai has had a lot of experience since showing here several times ttiis year and has never failed to please, displaying real ability in his matches and a pleasing personality. Scio BasebalUrs Start Next Week e Scio. (Special) Scio high school boys will begin baseball practices next week, according to announcement of Coach Cecil Klder, Elder's basketball squad finished the season in first place in the Linn county league.

By Henry McLemore United Preu Staff Corrrspondrnt Bradenton, Fla., March 19. Dizzy Dean may be the grxalcst pitcher in the world, and me) loss of the Arkansas cotton Tptcker might cost the team the 1936 championship, but the St. Louis Cardinals are not going to risk their future as a team simply to satisfy a man they consider the gicatest nvdeontent in baseball today. That, in so many words, is what BranclWJickoy, general manager of the iSr Louis club, told me last night 15 minutes after he h u d talked to the dissatisfied pitcher by telephone. "Our relationship," Rickey said, "is the same as it was when I wrote him the now famous letter of Jan. 23. Our difference is not one of money. You can forget about that. The issue is a much more important one than u few thousand dollars. Beiieve me when I tell you that it involves not only the career of Frank Frisch as manager, and the careers of the other 28 players on the club, but the future of the Cardinals as a team. To hire Dean as he now feels, and as he felt last year, and the year before, would be ruinous. "I don't mind telling you that there isn't,a man on the St. Louis team who wants Dizzy as a team mate unless there is a radical change in his attitude. 1 won't tell you exactly the things h(T)did. because that's hanging out the team's linen too prominently. But suppose I create a player and give him actions that parallel Dean's of last year?" I said that would be all right, figuring Rickey would hit pretty close to the truth. "You ve got a player on your team J Rickey continued, "who sccoiicL'tiuesses everything. Nolh- round of the 17th annual state high school basketball tournament in Willamette university's gym Wednesday. But pairod with the 1935 titlists in a quart&yfinal bracket this afternoon was Corvallis, a squad many dopesters think will catch the fishermen in their own nets. ZJ Favored for the state B league championship was Bellfountain, whose boys from "somewhere in Benton county" will face Myrtle Creek. The first day's play brought only two surprises. For the first time since the 1922 tournament, Salem was defeated in an opening game .losing to Tillamook, 35-24. Oregon City .came, from beT hind in the second half of its game with LaGrande to trounce the boys from eastern Oregon, 37-29, after they had led at the half, 15-12. Corvallis ran up the bigSJt andj most one-sided score in outclassing Ashland, 49-18. McLoughlin of Miiton-Freewater had little trquble disposing of Bend, 26-13.

U. basketball tournament play, a determined, hustling K. C. Life team, of Denver, loomed today as the tournament "daric horse", the team to beat. While a capacity crowd ot more than 3,000 rocked the rafters ot Denver municioal auditorium last night, the Lifers outplayed, out-shot and outfought the veteran Kansas City ciub to win. 41 to 38. Made up almost wholly of play ers who appeared last year undei the colors of Denver Athletic club, and before that in Wyoming university uniforms, the Life tcamO matched basket for basket with such stars as Chuck Hyatt, perennial All-American, and Bill (Skinny) Johnson, the great , former Kansas university player. While the K. C. Life victory was the night's feature, Greeley Statu Teachers' college, oi Groeley, Col., turned in another thriller in defeating the seeded Gridlcy Motors team, of Wichita, Kan., 53! to 41. In other games, favorites eame through as expected, the Safeway stores of Denver beating Rinaldt Tailors, of Washington, D.

In quarter-final play, starting at 7 p. m. tonight, Kansas City Life faces another tough assignment in the Western Transit team. Dizzy Will Pitch To Anyone, Signs Up Bradenton, Fla., March 19.
