L If I rami ram7 I H W UVJ JKlMfl o 111 FIVE DEFEATS EAST; SCORE, 2MB Fast Floor Game Gives Invaders Edge; Reserves Also Win. Gaining an early lead, the Shawano high quintet continued to add to its advantage and trimmed the East high five In a practice game at the East gymnasium last night by a score of 27 to 10. The Shawano t"am showed fine team work and smooth floor play thai centered around the free-throw lint with clever faking that befuddled the East players and counted baskets from short angles. East players had many shots at the basket, several from short distances, but no one had the range and not until lata In the fourth period were they able to count from the floor. ' A clever, speedy guard by the namt of Een led the Shawano attack, play ing a running guard game to travel all over the floor and drop in shots from under the basket. His aim wa unerring and counted nine of his team's points. He always was back in his position at the right time to break up East's plays. Werbllon. center, also turned In fine rrame for the Shawano team, dropping In three field goals and one free throw. Pruisick and Huntington and Coutour worked at forwards most of the time and also turned in good accounts. Reed, a guard, also showed form. Mikol and Jorgenson showed up best for East. Miknl, playing at a forward post, counted five points for East and did some good defensive work. Jorgenson scored two field goals. In a preliminary game, the Shawano reserves turned back the East high second team by a score of 22 to 13. East Hlch F.O. FT.

Two fast games are expected In the Industrial Basketball league on the "Y" floor tonight with the Morley Murphy quintet taking on the Fort Howard Paper team, league leaders, at "i:30 p. m., while the Wisconsin Public Service, another league leader, meets the Kraft Phcnlx Cheese at 8:30 p, m. The scheduled game between the Northwest Engineers and Morley Murphy, which was postponed until tonight from last Wednesday Is forfeited to the Morley Murphy due to the fact that the Engineers will bo unable to play tonight. In their place the Morley squad will take on Fort Howard in a pratice game, which should prove a real thriller. With Mich men as Red Hennig and Richard Scovell, Morley Murphy has two of the fastest men in the Industrial league. The Wisconsin Public Sorvice-KraO Phcnlx game, which was scheduled for 7:30, has been changed to 8:30 as it promises to be a real climax for the evening's play. The Kraft Phcnlx tram hasi wonderful group of players and It Is only a question of time when they will be able to get their combination working in championship fashion. With such men as Red Daman and Paul Schuette, East High stars, and Jimmy Boex, Bud Willems of West High, the Cheesemakers fhould be able to give the last year's champions a good run for theli Imcney.

NEW YORK U.R) Max SchmcN ing, heavyweight champion of the world, today stood in danger of having his title vacated '.y the New York boxing commission. Last Tuesday the commission ordered the German to agree within 15 days to meet Jack Sharkey in a title bout. Yesterday the commission received the following reply from the champion: "Gentlemen stop Joe Jacobs is now my sole manager and I have Just cabled him to go before your body and handle the matter as lie knows what to do stop regards." Inasmuch as Jacobs Is under suspension and thus ineligible to act for the champion, Schmellng's answer was highly unsatisfactory. The commission told the United Press that Schmeling had better talk English or he will he without a title." It Is believed that the commission, unless Schmeling within 15 days agrees to the Sharkey bout, will declare the German's title vacant. Jacobs did not appear before the commission but he' has already expressed disapproval of a Schmeling-Sharkey bout until the latter has proved himself the best challenger in the field. Should both the commission and Jacobs persist in their present impasse Schmeling's title may be vacated as far as New York state is concerned but he would be eligible to fight as champion in Illinois under the National Boxing association sanction. T SWIMMERS LOSE TO APPLETON TEAM IN DUAL MEET HERE ,'nvaders Win Both Relay Events; Doberstein Is Hign Scorer. The Green Bay "Y" swimming team suffered defeat at the hands of the strong Appleton team by a score of 51 to 24 here last night. While t.ha local boys fought hard, the speed of the Appleton team coupled with their winning the 160 yard relay and the medley relay, turned them back. Doberstein, one of the best free style swimmers to appear here, was high point man with 14 points, while R.

SPORTS TbdTs'MPN0T; MANAGER OF uJHEcTlEfc .DlCtf SWKA substituted foe his mam and tmj jack tavlok twftpiwi chamk in ADr-iiNDiti,, Midget Forwards In Lead For Badger Scoring Honors MADISON, Wis, m Two midget forwards, Ituss Tornowske, Patch Grove, Wis., and Mary Steen, Bowling Green, O., playing their first season as regulars, are carrying the burden of the University of Wlscon-son's new basketball attack. l?ccords for the two games to date Pennsylvania and Carroll college of Waukesha show these players, each five feet seven inches tall, have accounted for 24 of the 42 points the Badgers have collected. Dr. Walter E. Meanwell, Wisconsin's coaching genius, already has shown his newest Badgers are a strong defensive five. In former years, the stock and trada cf victory has been a tight guarding game, and In the two games the Badgers have allowed Just 2(1 points, of which only 14 have come from the field. Tornowski in Lead Tornowske is blazing the scoring trail with 14 points. He has collected five field goals and four free tosses, while Steen has marked up in point.". . , - W f.si.l I lul" J,"c B"u C,K"1 iiir lit iu. Doug Nelson who won a letter as a reserve laM season, is the third man i in the Wisconsin front line. He has scored six points, one mote than Co-captaln John Paul, Wisconsin's defense is built around the only two veterans on the team, Paul and Co-capl,aln Ed Chinielcw-skl. So strong has their work been under the basket, opponents have been able to drop in Just two goal from close in. Vunder Mutien, ranuy Carroll center, spotted a "sneaker" in the opener, which was won by the Badgers 17 to 14, and "Fish" Sander, Madison hoy, who is Penn's center, duplicated the teat In the 25 to l Badger victory Thursday night. Shooting is Poor Despite the two victories, Wisconsin's work has not been of championship standards. The ball-handling and guarding is good enough for Big Ten victories, but the shooting eyes of the players, both from the field and the free throw line Is sub-par. In the Penn game, the Badgen worked the ball in 27 times in the first half, but counted only three tims, for evample. From the free throw line, the Badgers have been able to drop only 10 of their 24 attempts for points. They also have run up a high number of personal fouls, possibly explained In rnrt by cln.-e officiating in early games and by over-zealous guarding. Wisconsin meets Its toughest pre-hollday opponent Monday night when It engages the Unlvtrslty of Missouri, Big Six conference champions. After the game, the Badgers will get a short vacation, and then begin preparations for the engagement with Marquette university In the Milwaukee auditorium on Dec. 30. This game promises to lie a terrific, tilt. It will be the last before the Western Conference season opens, the Badgers plunging into league contests on Jan. 5 at Champaign where they meet Illinois.

SCHAAF HPS IX BAER IN 19 ROUND GO Young Coast Heavyweight Makes Auspicious Debut In Defeat. NEW YORK (ZDMax Baer, young Ban Francisco heavyweight, has made an auspicious New York dehut In defeat. He dropped a ten round decision to blonde Ernie Schaaf of Boston In Madison Square Garden last night but mast of the public acclaim went to the loser when the hard-fought battle was over. For four rounds Baer waded Into his more experienced rival, swinging damaging rights and lefts that had the Boston lad a bit worried, nut Schaaf took everything that coast slugger sent his way, wavered at. times it Is true, but always was ready and willing to come back for more. Ilarr Soon Tires Then Baer tired. His punches lost some of the sting that had given him 24 knockout victories In 27 profession al engagements, and Schaaf, Rtahblni away with a straight. Jolting left hand and hammering away with heavy rights, assumed command on the struggle over the last six rounds. Schaaf, fighting a sound, Intelligent but overly-cautious battle, had Baer reeling all over the ring in the seventh, eighth and ninth rounds and might have scored r knockout had he been able to overcome his respect for the dynamite in Haer'a right hand. 10.000 See Fight Schaaf, who holds two decisions over Tommy LoUKhran and one over Johnny Risko although he still Is a youngster, won the unanimous decision of the referee and the two Judges, but the crowd, taking the heavy punching Callfnmlan to Its heart, boned the verdict. The Associated Press score card gave Schaaf five rounds and Baer four with one even, About 10,000 saw the fight. Baer weighed 200; Schaff 203 pounds, COMMERCIAL LOOP CAGE TEAMS SWING INTO "ACTION AGAIN Four Games Scheduled at Columbus Club Here Sunday Afternoon. Another quartet of games Is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at the Co-lumhus club In the Commercial league. The first game will start at 1:15 and will be between the Heriicks and the Hu.fords. The second game which will start about 2:15 will be between the Alpha Sweets and the Clusman five. At 3 o'clock the Automatic Washers are slated to tackle the Nicholson Hardware aggregation and ,WM the Kcllys and the Independ ents. All of the games should be rlos and hard fought. Every team In the league appears to be evenly matched and It In a difficult task to pick a prospective pennant winner. In the first game the Heriicks with an array of former Emit High stars will fight to keep their winning record clear while the Huxfords will make an unusual effort to get Into the win column. Both teams are fast working outfits and the fracas between them should be the equal of any on the piogra m. The Clusman squad are primed to take a fall out of the Alpha Sweets team. Manager Clusman has drilled his team, thto week with the Idea of setting down the opposition, but the Alpha Swceti players figure that If they are to take the short end of the count, It will not be without a battle. Although the Withers are favorite to win over the Nicholson five, it would not be at all Miipiislng to have the dope upvet. With the return of f-evnal regulars to his lineup, Manager Calne figures that his. team li capable of stopping the De Pere aggregation. Two old rivals, the Kellys and In dependents, cla-' li . In the final g.'imn and this tilt should be a bitter argument. Both have some old scores to settle. Playing time has been cut down so that from now on the games rill not lag as in the past, and all will be called on scheduled time. The last game should be over not, later than 5 o'clock under the present schedule MARQUETTE TACKLES TO PLAY IN CHARITY GAME MII,WAUKEE-'P) "Moco" Dor-noff and Edmund "rted" Andrews fust string lacklers on the undefeated Marquette university football team were on their way to New York today to play In the Knights of Col. umbus charity football game Dec. 27.

Professional football enjoyed another successful season and, despite economic conditions, the 1030 postgraduate brand of grldlronlng seemed to gather an ever increasing number of followers. The Green Bay Tarkers again emerged successful in the rare to Pcn nantvllle. This is the first time In the htstnry of professional football that a championship team ever repeated. Green Hay went through the 1029 season without a defeat. This fall, the Packers won ten, lost, three and tied one for a percentage of .769 while New York, the second place club, won thirteen and lost four, The Olantf' percentage was .765. Brnrs Most Improved Frnbably the most improved eleven in I ho league was the Chicago Bears, Coach Jones developed a great machine, which came with a rush In the closing games. Brooklyn made Its debut successfully. The Dodgers did well both on the field and at the gate. Professional football is now firmly establLshrd in Brooklyn, Providence, Staplelon and the Chicago Cardinals exp rhiiced fair sen. sons while Portsmouth made its pro league entrance, in a niunnrr that promises much success in the future. For the first time In many years, Frankford experienced a "lean" season but the YellowJaekets management plans on coming back with a vn-geance In 1931. Another season will probably see some additions to the National league as President Joe F. Carr reports that franchise applications will be filed by professional football j romoters in Milwaukee, Cleveland and Cincinnati while a new holding corporation h to take over the poKlgntdiiale gridiron "plant" in Newark. How Team In Silrctetl The selection of the above all-American professional football team follows the same method that has been used for the past live years. Inquiries have been directed to the various coaches in the Ne.tlonal league club officials, sport writers and officials. They are asked to pick an all star team. The votes are then tabulated and the players are graded in the first, second and third team selections. The Press-Gazette sporl.i editor did not take part In this balloting as ho picked an all-Ameiican professional football squad of 22 men instead of a first, second and third teams. Here Is the result of the ballots cast by the professional football experts; i;.Ms There was an abundance of top- notch ends. Dllweg, of Green Hay, had a shade on the other wing-men. The former Marquette captain seems to Improve each season. His defensive tactics were siierb. Johnson, former Northwestern ace who played with the Chicago Bears, came to the front with a rush. Johnson is built big and tough and he likes punishment. To-yards the dune of the season he developed Into an accurate goal kicker. The second team end Jobs go to Badgro, of New York, and Nash, of Green Bay. Badgro was a llneflghter for the Giants all season while Na.-h, pairing with Dllweg, gave Green Bay the best, pair of wings in the league. Kostos1 end play st'iod out. prominently In a drab season at Frankford while Chuck Kasscll continued to shine tor the Chicago Cards. TACKLES There wasn't an over abundance of good tackles and, as a result, opinions varied. Lyman of the Chicago Bears had a splendid season after one year In retirement and It was his aggressl' work on the forward wall that played a big part In the first down making ot the Halas-Sterniiinen combination. uouits, a product of W. and J., mad ! good with bells on in his first year In postgraduate football. He played great football for Providence and continued to star when purchased by Portsmouth. Douds featured on the defense yet was often down the field faster than his ends under punts, Mooney, another neweotnrr who started with Newark and finished with Brooklyn, marie quite a name for himself. This former Georgetown captain found postgraduate footballing pretty much to his liking and his sensational kicking was one of the oustanriing features of the season. Bill Kern, a Oreen Bay veteran, only played In a half dozen games but the one time Pittsburgh grlddrr had It on the other tackles. Duke Slater of the Chicago Cards and Cal Hubbard r.f Grcn Bay are the third team tackles.

MADISON, Wis, U.Re-Glcnn Thistle! hwalte will remain head football coach at the University of WLsconsln for at least 1031 as a result of a decl-olon by the university athletic council announced after a long session her last night, ! George Mtlle, director of athletics and secretary of the council, Issued the following statement at the closa of the meeting: "The athletic council voted to make no recommendations to the board of regents looking toward the discontinuance of the services of Coach Thlstlethwalte." Members of the council admit the vole on the question was divided, but say that it stood approximately 6 to In TliLsllethwalte's favor. The peculiarly worded statement Issued cannot be a move on the part of the council to pass the matter to the board of regents, since that body rarely devhtles from the practice of approving all recommendation regarding faculty appointments. Desire for a football championship, which Wl.'consln has not had for Id years, has made the task of pleasing students, aliunnl and townspeople a difficult one for the Just three roaches, Jack Kyaii, Little and Thlstlethwalte.

A wlndup bout for the New year's afternoon amateur boxing show at the Columbus club has been secured after much negotiation. Paddy McDonough, boxing Instructor at the club announced today that he had secured Ernie Kratchnvll of Racine to mingle with Winston Thomas, the popular little fighter from New London, Several Milwaukee fighters were being sought for Thomas but none of them seemed to care for the fight hut through the efforts of Charles Hlgglns the Racine boy was signed. The bout should be nbout the best amateur fight ever staged in a local ring. Won At Fond du I.ae Only a few weeks ago the Racine battler secured a dechlnn over Thomas at Fond du Lac the bout going four rounds before a winner was selected. Kratchnvll is a veteran in amateur circles and has had several srord amateur battles in and around Milwaukee. Ho is a pleasing performer, being not only a good boxer but a hard puncher as well. He is one of the most popular amateurs working around the Cream City at the present time and the local club certainly made a ten-strike In landing him. Thomas Is training for this bout as he lias never trained before.' The derision In the last fight as not at all pleasing to him and he Is out this time to show that he is the master of the Racine scrapper. Thomas is one fighter who Is always in them trying. Ho Is fast and ft two-fisted fighter and In his three years of amateur competition has never performed In an unsatisfactory hout. Good Scml-Wlndup . The main bout will be supported by on unusually flno.seml-wlndup. Art Van Esee of Green Bay tackles Alex Ehlcrt of Sheboygan. Both are slug-rci-s of the old school, and if nothing else, the bout should contain plrnty of action. Pulaski, the village which Is noted for its support of home town boys will have a chance to demonstrate that it is still loyal to Its own for two Pulaski youths are on the card. Cy Pep-llpskl, a former athlete of Pulaski High meets Lawrence Marmes of Neenah. It will be his first battle but he has shown rapid dcvelpment. in the gymnasium and in a few months fchould be one of the best amateurs In these parts. Barney Adams, a southpaw with a kick like a mule li In left takes on Billy Schmidt of Sheboygan. Adams Is a native of Pulaski but trained all last winter at thn Eagles club in Milwaukee and his work In the ring shows the result of the training.
