Qfl IP AM l JV IV V Twirl? mutt Efi mtt BADGERS SHOW GLASS TO TURN BACK CARLETON GREENLEAF WINS POCKET BILLIARD TITLE ON TOP AGAIN Midget Cardinal Cagers Trip Up Six-Footers, Score 27-18. MADISON, Wis. (A A pood little basketball team that followed thu ball, shot accurately and had an Impenetrable defense outclassed a group of six-footers from the Northland here last night as Wisconsin's midgets downed Carletnn college, Northftcld, Minn.. 27 to 18. A short-lived two-point Carleton lead melted as the BndRcr bllraard swept to an 18 to 7 advantage at the half, never to relinquish It. With "Bud" Foster at center a. the mly man over six feet tall, pivoting and feeding the ball as he has dodged old man eligibility the last two years, the diminutive Badgers presented a whirlwind, long-pass attack that would have scored more frequently had the ball-handling been smoother. Farber Is Star. Foster, who counted only fiva points, was chief of the offense, but his own tries were muffed by his own errors in dribbling. It was the lightning-fast Maury Farber, risen from a substitute to regular forward, who led Wisconsin's attack. He counted 13 of his team's 27 points by way of five field goals and three free throws. Defensively the Badgers were ps Stout as ever, allowing their opponents only five goals from the field only one of which was a short, swishing counter. Their offense was revamped with a long pass, quick -breaking attack differing from the famous short-pass plays that have made Dr. W. E. Mean-well, coach, famous. They did not sn-tirely abandon the old favorite, hut the long shots down the floor were more frrnuent than ever before. Make 11 Field Goals. Carleton played a fast breaking offense, attempting to use its players' height to advantage, but Coach C. B. Cowles' five could not slip by Chmlc-lcwskl and Paul, Wisconsin guards. The accuracy of the Badgers la noted in the fact that they made It field goals in SI shots, while Carleton had only ?f) tries at the basket, of which five were good.

P The threat lf ineligibility which chased Harold (Bud Foster, Wisconsin's all-conference basketball star, for the last two years, had been Definitely lifted today. He was clear of all charges. Foster, originally protested two years ago on charges that he had played with an amateur team, was cleared on that occasion. Again last year, the Badfjer star was protested because he had played one season at Mason City, la., Junior college. At the Western conference meeting in 1028, Foster was cleared of the second charge and went on to win all-conference honors as a forward. A week ago, after he had been declared eligible for another season, one of the members of the conference protested for the third time. Prof. Fred E. Francis, of Ohio State university, chairman of the conference eligibility committee, decided Foster was eligible for another season of competition. Yesterday it wa.i announced that the protesting school had withdrawn Its Continued on Page 2(1, Column 4. NEW YORK U.R Tod Morgan, a dark-haired, handsome little fellow from the far const who for the past four years has defended the junior lightweight title as a true champion should, may retch the end of his reign over the 330-pounders tonight, Impelled among the has-beens by the capable fists ,f walloping Benny Bass, of Philadelphia. The challenger figures to whip Morgan on points or stop the champion before the end of the scheduled 15-rotinds. If Tod goes down to defeat and returns to his Avocado ranch, he will leave behind a worthy record of a title-holder who was willing to fight in defense of his crown. Since he won the 130-pound championship by stopping Mike Ballerino back in 1025, Morgan has engaged in 16 title fights, most of them tough ones. He has had his ears bnttended down once or twice in that time, fighting lightweights like Phil McOraw and Stanis laus Loayza, but he has always bepn willing and ready and able to fight, which is more than can be said for most of our champions of recent years. Benny Bass, who is a 7 to 5 favorite to take Tod's 'itle, is a busy, two-fisted little slugger who can box as well when he needs to. Bass prefers rough going, and is quite a body puncher, a style which should be effective against the none-too-rugged champion. Morgan has not been Impressive in recent appearances in the east, and so is one of the few champions to enter the ring in the short end of the betting. It will he the first championship fight in Madison Square Garden for 15 months, MAT MEET AT CHICAGO CHICAGO (P) The University of Chicago will hold an invitational national college and university Individual wrestling championship tournament in Bartlett gymnasium December 27 and 28. The event will open to all undergraduate amateur grap-plers who are eligible under the rules of their own schools and will be informal, with no team title at stake. ri'ROl'E TO MEET HITLER LAFAYETTE, Ind. Pi Purdue and Butler will resume football relations in 1930, after a lapse of 3R years. The game, which completes Purdue's schedule for next season, will be played at Lafayette November 15. They last met in 1892. DETROIT (Pi Ralph Greenleaf of New York st,;iin holds the world's pocket billiard championship. This star cueist defeated Erwin Rudolph of Chicago in the play-off fo the world's crown by 125 to 68 in 18 innings. The gnme was not spectacular, .but was marked by hard fighting and excellent delenslve work. Both players seem-d to be showing the strain, Greenleaf mlsculng twice and making a foul once, offenses seldom chained against the headllners. Ru dolph also was guilty of at least four misses on easy shots. Right from the si art it settled down to a battle of defense. At the end of nine Innings Rudolph was leading 25 to 0. In the tenth Inning Greenleaf found his stride and playing deliberately, also ratlvr slowly for Greenleaf and with much car he accumulated 44 when he miscucd on a side rail shot for the corner. Rudolph had an excellent chance at this stage but was stopped at 23 when he missed a left hand shot on n short try for the corner. Play "Safety" Game Greenleaf came right back with 41, missing the six hall for the corner on a long break shot. Incidentally, that was the only shot Greenleaf missed on a called ball during the game. He surrendered the table to Rudolph in the other innings on safeties, scratches, miscucs and a foul. Rudolph's answer to Greenlcaf's 41 was only 7 when he missed another relatively easy shot. For the next four innings defense was in order but in the 16th inning Greenleaf ran 12, when he miscued on the four ball in trying to get position for a braK. This brought his total to 102. Rudolph ran 14 and seemed on his wiy to a long run when he missed his second left hand shot on a side rail shot for the corner. His total then was 07. Greenleaf came back with two, being retired when he fouled on the one ball after pocketing the two. His total then was 103. In Rudolph's half he ran two and said farewell for the tournament when he missed a cut shot for the side. Greenleaf ended the game with a run of 22. By winning the title, Greenleaf earned $1,200 in cash, a salary of $6,-000 a year given by the National- Billiard association. Grec-ileaf also will receive sixteen per ce'.lt of the net gate receipts. The tournament this year outdiew ar.y previous tournament in the history of pocket billiards, playing to capacity crowds at virtually all of the games. Gets 1,000 Cash Rudolph will receive $1,000 In cash and a salary of $3,000 a year. He also will receive fifteen per cent of the net receipts. Frank Taberski for finishing third will receive $800 and 14 per cent of the net receipts. The other prizes follow: Onofrio Lauri $700 and 13 per cent; Marcel Camp, fifth, $600 and 12 per c;nt; Pasquale Natalie, sixth, $500 and 11 per cent; Spencer Livsey, seventh, $400 and 10 per cent; Joseph McCann, eighth, $300 and 9 per cent. Under the rules, Greenleaf will not bo asked to defend the title for one year. He first won the title in 1919 in Philadelphia and held it without interruption unt'l he lost to Frank Taberski in the National league in 1925. He has won and lost It a number of times sine;, dropping the crown a year ago to Taberski after a play-off in Chicago.
