MayHearLaGuardia In Cage Scandal Case BROOKLYN, Feb. 6 UP) — The Kings county grand jury, investigating the Brooklyn College basketball scandal, plans to call Mayor F'orello La Guardia as a witness. The mayor, in a radio broadcast Sunday, asserted "It just happened that Brooklyn College was ^covered. It's not the only one." "e did not give any "evidence to »upport his statement. Alton at E, St. Louis OUersHost to Kahoks ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH tieb Plan Would Curb Monopolies On Grid Material By HUGH FUMJERTON, Jr. NEW YORK, Feb. 6 UP> -, Tom Lleb, who once proposed building an athletic "fence" around Florida to keep out-of-state institutions from snatching the best football material, now comes up with a new idea for equalizing gridiron competition after the war . . . Surprisingly, it ties in with the competi- tloh-for-«ll theme that keeps recurring when athletic directors discuss post-war plans . . . Tom's proposal, briefly, is that conferences should adopt player limits, as in baseball; at the start of the season, each football coach would turn in his squad list and then he'd have to stick with it ... "It is ridiculous, 1 ; says Lleb, "for one school, due to bowl game receipts, to grab off all the available football material, carrying a squad of 80 and playing about 30 men. The boys who do not play are cheated out of competition that would really do them good." Today's Oucst Star Joe Gootter, Paterson, N. J., Evening News: "The University of Richmond varsity basketball squad is out of action because three members have the mumps. And five former Brooklyn College players are as popular as small-pox . . . Maybe college basketball Isn't catching on, but Its catching." Not So Goofy Here's another that Lefty Gomez was telling on himself at the baseball writers' dinner One of Lefty's duties as recreation direct, or for a bombsight company—"we make the hits, the other guys make the near misses"—is umpiring softball games ... In one tough game last summer a big pitcher walked In the winning run then dashed to the plate, to protest Gomez's decision . ... "I just told him," says Lefty, " 'for 17. years I've been saying umpires are blind, so what have you got to complain about?' " Service Dept.

The East Side Flyers, currently cellar-dwelling with Granite City in the loop race—with only two wins against seven losses — will be no setup, however, for the victory-bound Redblrds. The Flyers sained their two victories early in the season over Edwardsville, Alton's only conqueror in league competition, and Granite City, end gave the strong Belleville Maroons a stiff battle last week. • Coach George Ingles' Birds, with the conference title almost within grasp, will take no chances against the Flyers tonight, but hope to use the game as a tune-up for Friday night's ci'ucial test, when they play host to the Maroons, currently tied with Wood River and Collinsville for second 'place in the conference. Wood River and Collinsville battle tonight on the Oilers' court in what promises to be the highlight game of the evening for confer ence teams. The victor will' remain in a tie with Belleville for runner- up position and a torrid scrap between the two teams to remain in the race is in prospect. In the only other conference tilt on tonight's card, Edwardsville's Tigers entertain Madison Both teams have won three and lost six, but'the Tigers, previously beaten by'the Trojans, will be seeking revenge and go into the fray as favorites. Roxana also plays tonight, trav- elling to Dupo for a return engagement. The Shells, nosed out on their home court by'Dupb earlier in the season, 36-35, will be out to avenge that defeat tonight.

Firing at official targets, the (Ull's-eye, of which is smaller in diameter than the bullet of her .22 •Ifle, Miss Smith demonstrated her :omplete mastery of all four of the standard shooting positions. To even become eligible to compete 'or this honor she had to first sue- lessfully meet the requirements of 14 Other progressively more difficult qualification ratings. An idea of the relative skill which this necessitates can be seen from the fact that, out of a total of 75,491 qualifications during the entire year of 1844, only 88 young shooters In the entire nation earned this highest rating. Miss Smith lives at 757 Park Drive, Alton, and Is a student at Alton High School. She began her shooting career three years ago. A great deal of credit for her accomplishment is also due L to Henry Fones, Instructor and adult leader of the Piasa Junior Rifle Club.
