State Meets Wyoming Tonight LOS ANGELES—(£>>—The second •nnual Los Angeles College.Invita- tional basketball tournament gets underway tonight with two of the finest teams in the country, North Carolina State and Wyoming, tangling in the-feature game of a triple- header. Marshall College of Huntington W. Va., plays Pepperdine 01 Los Angeles, and Hamline of St. Paul meets Loyola of Los Angeles. Two other entrants, Brlgham Tounc of Utah and the 1 University of Montana, see their first action tomorrow night. Marshall defeated Syracuse, 4644, in the finals last year, but Coach Cam Henderson lost several good players. Gene (Goose) James,,center and voted the outstanding -player a year ago, is back, however, and Marshall figures to make'it. rough for the rest of the field. Most observers think the winner of the North Carolina State-Wyoming game may win the tournament. Everett Case "has 10 lettermen back on the ' barnstorming, tour, including Dick Dickey, an outstanding forward. Star of the Wyoming-Cowboys is Ron Livingstone, a center who stands 6 feet 10 inches, and John Pilch, a towering guard. Loyola, just back from a successful mldwestern invasion, should give the Hamllne Papers, a hot battle, and the same goes for Pepperdine against Marshall.

In addition to a $900 prize, the winner took a side bet of 31,000, Flaherty,, who had just turned 17, whipped Pope so badly that in the 2Gth round the former champion was on his hands and' knees in the center of the ling. "If you hit him again 111 kill you," said someone at the ringside. The' man speaking held a gun over the ring apron, and to young Flaherty the muzzle'looked.like the open end of a two-inch pipe. Pope didn't .get up. As a matter of fact, it was two weeks before the doctors left his bedside. During that period a hack-was kept-at the back door of Flaherty's hotel, ready to take him out of the county'in case Pope died. Two years later Flaherty twice knocked out Bobby Bums, once holder of the feather crown, in 32 rounds the first trip and 18 the next. The first fight with.Burns stands out in Flaherty;* mind more than any other, witnesses called it the greatest demonstration of garr.eness in ring history.

Flaherty took a Baseball Walk Of Intentional Nature Flayed Voluntarily Passing Stars Of Game Proves Irritating, Scribe Says ; By LAWTON CARVER International News Sen-Ice Sports Editor NEW YORK—(INS)—The game of baseball which .for all these years has been hold up us the -great national pastime has one little irritating touch which should be ruled out promptly and permanently.. This is the intentional pass. This, peculiar maneuver whereby a pitcher takes an unfair advantage of a hitter has no place in American sports, but is tolerated as part ol the game wh'ich supposedly symbolizes America where the offensive is revered. Cilmb. Lcjrion FCr n. Sterne, I 3 Tales, ! « price, c ! of fellow who plays golf professionally. Won European Title This would be Lloyd Manptnim. He told us after he had won the European Theater golf championship that he had had g. lot of trouble finding a set of sticks and even more trouble in finding a course on which to practice. He really wasn't up to his best (roll because he had been a fighting soldier with n lot ot act.lon behind him and Chat hospital' siege to further hinder his game. Anyway he came stalking up the hillside of tile seared final fairway at St. Cloud as the European Theater champion and concerned mainly with getting home again. Wmls To Go Home Later on, we met him at Nuremberg, and he still was quietly hoping that now he would be going home as long as he wasn't needed any more, / ~~ He didn't have any money beyond a GI's pay, he had his belly full of war and he had heard about the money the stay-at-home professionals had been' making. Flick the calendar quickly as they do in the movies and bring it around to 1943. This same golfer got himself back in the groove and in the current year won $45,898.32 to pick up more money than any other golfer in; the land. This figure covers all his earnings from golf competition, and put him ahead of Ben Hogan who led in PGA tournaments with S32.112 against $31,298.99 for Mangrum. 51 Mangrum picked up his differ„.„ ->|ence in competition outside the — i PGA, and his earnings of $45,898.32, " "" "' i over all, left Hogan well behind with The fans who pay their way into the park are deprived of the full va:ue of their ticket. Players like Joe DiMagglo, Ted Williams and Stan Muslftl are in accord with my thinking. They do not want to take four wild pitches o get on first base; instead of being privileged to strikeout if the pitcher is that good. I know too that the pitcher takes orders from the manager, and that only lost year Connie Mack issued orders that at no time should Ills pitchers pitch to Williams or Di- Magglo when a hit by either of them might mean scoring a run or putting their clubs in a scoring position. ' Tills has been a thorn In the side of the paying fan, and -I am taking up the cudgel against the intentional pass. It should be ruled out, or so regulated that there will be a pcn- ,lty against such a maneuver.
