L. Lambeau's Green Bay club, which captured Its third successive bunting, got off in the lead and was never headed. The Packers won 12 out of 14 games, loping only to the - Chicago Cardinals and Bears. Portsmouth Second I'p I Portsmouth, runners up to Green Bay won all but three of their 14 con tests. Ths New York Giants and the two Chicago elevens chalked up vie torles over the Spartans, who played brilliant ball all fall. The Chicago Bears and Cardinals placed third and fourth In the per centage table respectively and these windy City squads In turn were fol lowed by New York and Providence while Stapleton, Cleveland, Brooklyn and Philadelphia trailed along In the order named. High Class Football High class football was on tap In the National league this fall. All the teams appeared to be better drilled and the raising of the league player limit to 22 men enabled the coaches to make frequent substitutions and this kept the games at top speed from first to last whistle. The New York Giants played before two 40.000 .crowds while there were several 20,-000 turn-outs In Chicago. Other cities In the league reported a healthy gain In the turnstile click. In si-lecting the professional all star teams, the usual custom has been followed. Ballots were sent to each club "ji league and to sport writers and officials as well. These returns were checked over and the players rated according to the votes they received. Four From Green Bay On the 1931 first team, there are four players from Green Bay Dilweg, end; Hubbard, tackle;' Michaleske, guard and Blood, halfback; two Chicago CJaidlnals, McNally, center and Nevers, fullback. Portsmouth Is represented by Chrlstcnsen, tackle, and Clark, quarterback. Badgro, end and Olbson, guard, are from the New York Giants while the ChlcaRO Bears have Grange, halfback. Dilweg, Michaleske, Nevers and Grange are "repeaters" from the 1930 all-American team. Ends There was no dearth of good ends and the votes were well scattered although Dilweg again had a commanding margin. The Packer wing saw action in every game and he was pretty close to a "60-minute" man. Badgro, of New York, earned a shade decision over Johnsos, of the Bears, McKallDj of Portsmouth and Red Flaherty, Giant veteran. Sensational pass grabbing and savage tackling was an outstanding feature of the end play In th professional gridiron. Tackles Cal Hubbard of Green Bay and Christenscn of Portsmouth are named CONTINUED ON PAGE 14, COLUMN 5 ESTELLE TAYLOR TO WITHDRAW DIVORCE Agrees to Settlement With Jack Dempsey.

Looking Up In th Realm of Sport By ART BYITROM ATTACKS BROADCASTER Dear Art: I Happened to be one of the un fortunate souls who tuned In on our local radio station last Sunday morn lng. As a rule the station's programs are fine and a real asset to Green Bay and surrounding territory, but on this occasion, I found the air filled with the worst kind of mud-sllnglng. It was muck-raking at Us worst, com. lng from one of our local, should : say, representative business men. He had Capt. Lambeau and other Packers on the fire and was throwing oil on the blaze to make It hotter. He paid to put our good clean air In such condition, advertising his company and its product. But by his slanderous remarks, I wonder if he did not do more harm to himself than good. You know, if this chap hap pened to be in your business, I'd wager he'd be running a cheap, sordid, sen sational tabloid. The Green Bay Football corporation and "Curly" Lambeau have given Oreen Bay advertising valued at thousands of dollars in addition to showing us a class of football that we otherwise would not have access to, Top this with three national championships and then sit by your radio and listen to this publicity-seeking busy-body tear at Its foundations, suppose I shouldn't waste my time as I'm doing here, because those who know this fellow realize that he is forever getting into arguments and that he is always right (In his own mind) and that he should be coach and manager of the Packers. All men who are In the public eye are subject to both favorable and unfavorable criticism but I for one and I think there are many who feel as I do, wish to take this opportunity to thank "Curly" Lambeau and especially the Packer football directors for their foresight. Judgment and honesty In bringing Green Bay another championship. Just who does this fellow think he Is that he should set himself up as a lordly critic, belittling everything and passing judgment on all that does not strike his majestic fancy. I never heard of him performing such wondrous deeds on a football field, or ever heard of him doing as much as carry water for a football team. A GREEN BAY FAN. Green Bav. Wis., Dec. 17, 1931. PULASKI CAGE TEAM BEATS BEAR CREEK Win Battle In Overtime Period, 18 to 16. CSpeclal to Press-Gazette) PULASKI, Wis.

Trailing at the half by a 14 to S count, the Pulaski team came back Into the battle in the final periods and scored ten points while holding their opponents to two scores. The Purple displayed "dead" eyes for the basket. After they got under way, they dropped four out of nine free throws and turned in some neat offensive work while under the hoop. Andrew Pnluch flashy little forward, counted eight points and lead the evening's scorers for his team. For the visitors, Klemn shone as the star of the contest.

The taking of testimony from Coach Glenn Thlstle-thwaite was awaited today as the next step in the state legislature's investigation of the University of Wisconsin athletic department. The lnvestigatlnu committee ad Journed until Tuesday after h3aring George Little, resigned director of athletics, testify at a hearing late yesterday. Although pressed for his views on the football coaching situation at Wisconsin, little deferred an expression of opinion until it could be made in the presence of the coach. Thlstlcthwaite has been under fire since the close of the football season and his resignation has been reported and denied reveral times. Although Little confined his tes timony mainly to nn explanation of the structure of the athletic department and athletic finances, he was questioned concerning the cooperation of the various coaches. Gets "Good Cooperation" "Do all your departments give you cooperation?" Assemblyman Freder ick Krcz, Plymouth, asked. "I feel that I have received good cooperation from my departments," was the answer. "The public at large," continued the assemblyman, "feels that something has failed to click, that there has been a lack of teamwork somewhere. Pinning it down, I don't think things have clicked In the football department. Do you feel satisfied with the results shown?" Difference of Opinion The director admitted there was a "difference of opinion regarding the coaching situation" but asked to be permitted to make statements on this subject next week when Thistle-thwalte is present. Assemblyman Krez asked the director whether the university Is getting Its share of good - football prospects among Wisconsin high school play ers. Mr. Little said he did not know exactly how to answer the question but admitted that "we would liked to have had Joe Kurth, all-American at Notre Dame this year, and Jim Crowley." Both are Wisconsin men who went to Notre Dame. Asks for Details Assemblyman Oscar Schmlege, Ap- pleton, Intimated that the salary paid the publicity man, George Downer, was foo high. He asked for details on the amount of work done by the publicity department. He also sought to determine whether George Levis, director of ticket sales, was "on the Job." Schmlege recalled that the late Knute Rockne had publicly commented thai no cno met his team when Notre Dame came here to play Wisconsin in 1928. The legislator expressed the opinion that Levis should have been present. To the business depression, which brought a decline In football receipts during the past season, Little attributed the financial difficulties encountered in the athletic department. He told the committee that most of the estimates for football receipts failed to approximate the actual money received this fall. A $60,000 share for WlsDonsln was planned in the Pannsylvanla game but the receipts permitted only $31.-000, Little said by way of illustration. FAINTS AS GUN SOUNDS SUPERIOR, Wis. ?) Ray Baker, forward on the Superior Central high school basketball team, fainted last night when he shot the winning basket ,ln a 21 to 19 victory over Superior East. The ball was In mid-air when the gun was fired. Baker was quickly revived.

The Green Bay teams are the Reimers, and two teams from the Green Bay Aerie of the Eagles. The bowlers will leave the North Side Community club at X o'clock. . Johnny Blood Champion In (Special to Press-Gazette) COLUMBUS. Ohio John Blood, rapid fire halfback of the Green Bay Packers, conclusively cinched high scoring honors in the National professional football league for the 1931 season, final statistics released today by President Joe F. Carr revealed. Blood counted 13 touchdowns during the course of the Packer schedule, to pile up 78 points, 12 more than Ernie Nevers of the Chicago Cardinals, who scored eight touchdowns, 15 extra points and a field goal to land in sec ond place. Earl (Dutch) Clark of Portsmouth, who paced Blood most of the season, finally ended In third position, with 60 points, six more than those socred by Kenneth Strong, Stapleton's all-American halfback. Harold (Red) Orange of the Chicago Bears was fifth. The final game of the season, a 25 to 6 affair played last Sunday between the Bears and the New York Giants, did l.ttle to alter the scorinj race. Johnny Kltzmlller, dlminutlvo back of the Giants, scored two touchdowns and boosted himself to a tie with Laverne Dilweg of Green Bay for ninth place. Hap Moran, also of the Giants, booted an extra point but failed to overtake Verne Lewellcn o! Green Bay, who finished seventh. Single touchdowns were added to their records by Sedbrook and Burnett of New York, and Nesbitt of Chicago, but none of these greatly affected the point scorers. Only six field goals were kicked during the course of the season, and Strong of Stapleton was the only player to account for more than one. He made two. Nevers and Joseph Dunn, the latter of the Packers, each kicked 15 extra points during the season to lead In that department of of fensive play.

E. W. Circuit; Play Good Ball. SHAWANO, Wis. Playing good, conservative basketball, Coach Martin Gharrlty's Shawano high school capers displayed an abundance of reserve power in defeating Algoma high 18 to 7 here Friday evening. It was the first major home gamo of the season, and marked the second conference victory of the year for the Indians. The Shawano Frosh were defeated 16 to 3 by the lanky Ea.st Green Bay yearlings in a preliminary game, Ploctz sinking five baskets for the winners. The- Shawano second team, led by a pair of Indian guards, held the Algoma reserves at bay, 10 to 6, In another cpener. A strong Shawano defense kept the Algoma squad shooting from the middle of the floor, In the feature attraction. A combination zone and rcan-for-man defense held the loser to one field goal out of 36 shots at the hoop. The locals were delibcrata about netting six shots In 25 attempts. The paying of Andrews, at forward, featured the Shawano attack, although Mclfert grabbed scoring honors in the closing minutes w-hen he counted a sleeper and a pretty overhead shot. Shawano's offensive was centered on Andrews, whose pivoting and passing improved as the game went on. Czeekeba's control of the tipoff, and the defensive work of "Chubby" Grig-non and Moede were factors in the win. BOX SCORE F.G. 2 2 0 0 1 0 I 0 Shawano Andrews, f. Meltert, f. ., GriRnon, f.

Chicago Fighter Sends Tommy to Floor Three Times In Bout. NEW YORK-4U.R Sing it softly toyr, for Its the Swan song of Tommy Loughran, the same Tommy I oughran who only yesterday was re garded as boxing's greatest 10-round fighter and an outstanding contend er for Max Schmeling's heavyweight title. The flashing fists of King Levin- sky were beating out the funeral dirge to Tommy's title hopes when they carried the slugging young Chl- cacoan to a 10-round three-knocx down victory over the " Philadelphia boxing master at Madison Square Garden last night. When Tommy Loughran, past master of boxing skill, loses a 10-round decifion through being knocked down three times by a fighter so clumsy that he falls down In missing punches, the Philadelphia pugilistic professor no longer retains his speed, King Better Fighter That speed had enabled him to win third place, directly behind Max Schmellng and Jack Sharkey, in heavyweight rankings for 1931. And If Loughran no longer retains the skill and speed to defeat the Tyro Levlnsky who couldn't have hit Tommy a year ago with a buggy whip, he no longer rates as a dangerous opponent for Messrs. Schmellng and Sharkey. "I Just couldn't seem to keep moving fast enough," Loughran said. "Those right hands kept booming cut of nowhere and I couldn't block them as I've blocked their predeces sors. Levmsky is greatly Improved since I fought him a year ago." 150 Ring Battles Tommy's explanation tells the story of the bout. Apparently the 12 years of activity and some 150 battles have begun to take their toll. In the tenth, realizing that he must take the round by a big margin to win Ihe fight. Tommy abandoned his t$ual boxing tactics and made a gallant but futile effort to outslug his younger rival. Levlnsky slammed away with both fists to take the round decisively and to corn the unanimous decision of Referee Arthur Donovan and Judges Marty Monroe and Joe Agnello. The defeat was Loughran's first In 14 starts and his second in a New York ring, the previous setback being a fluke knockout by Jack Sharkey in 1929. He beat Levlnsky a year ago. Three Knockdowns His three knockdowns were scored with booming right crefses. The first was late In the third round. Tommy took a count of elr?ht. In the next round ho fell victim to a hard right which sent him tumbling in the resin for a nine count. The final knockdown, In the ninth, miirht easily have been a knockout. Loughran Instinctively got up at eight, sldesteoped the rushing Levin-sky and grabbed his fee from behind. The bell rang before Referee Donovan could separate the fighters and Tommy apparently out on his feet Immediately plunked himself down on the first available ttool It wai levinrkv's stool but Tommy didn't know th difference. With the public thinklnor so Uttli of JiLi chances that, onlv 7,658 turnd rut to make a $21,353.67 gate (one of the smallest in ths Garden's history) Levinskv turned In the biggest fistic upset of the year. MARQUETTE PUCrTSQUAD DEFEATS MICHIGAN TECH HOUGHTON, Mich,., (U.R Mar quette university's hockey team opened Its 1931-32 hockey season last night with a 1 to 3 victory over Mich igan Tech of Houghton. The game was played at Calumet instead of Houghton as originally scheduled because of poor ice conditions In the amphldromo here. Wettlaufer and Furlontj and Nich olson each scored for Marquette in the first period and Wettlaufer re peated in the second.

West Unable to Make Good On Chances at Basket and Drop 21 to 14 Verdict. BY ARTHUR W. BYSTROM A pair of stocky little Sheboygan performers showed West Green Bay high school players how to sink bas kets from the middle of the floor In a Fox River Valley conference game at the West high gymnasium here last night and as a result the West high team went down to its first defeat of the season, losing to Sheboygan by a score of 21 to 14. The Sheboygan sharp-shooters were Capt. Froehlich, forward and Fricke a guard. They counted 17 points for their school, mostly on fine shots that never hit the back-board but swish ed through the net In perfect swan dives. West boys were far off color and missed many easy shots. They play. cd good guarding games at times but on ether occasions let their men (jet away from them for shots at ths hoops. And as these shots usually were good, the West boys took a beating. West got many more chances for baskets than the Invaders but could not connect. Sheboygan did and therln Is the story of the game, Sheboygan Hurries West West's play in beaklng up Sheboy gan's passes was good near the basket but in the center of the floor it wasn't up to usual caliber. The Wildcats handled the ball and passed smoothly at times but they seemed to have forgotten the art of faking and Sheboygan men were on them contln ually to hurry shots. Besides leading the attack for She boygan, Fricke and Froehlich played good floor games. They were in the thick of the fight continually and sel dom were caught out of position, Sheboygan played a five man defense deep in their opponent's court when West had the ball and the West plays couldn't effectively penetrate the territory. West had 40 shots at the hoop while Sheboygan men shot 25 times. West sank eight of 11 free throws and Sheboygan players converted eight of 12 free shots. Gain Early Lead Sheboygan gained an early lead when Froehlich sank a long shot soon after the opening gun. Schllawsky sank a free shot and Straubel also put a gift toss into the hoop to tic the count. Fricke and Grau added gift tosses to give Sheboygan the lead again and Fricke sank a long shot for two more points. West added three points when B. Wolfe sank a free throw and Straubel dribbled down for a short shot. The first quarter end ed 6 to 5 In Sheboygan's favor. Froehlich connected with two long shots in the second period and Grau added a free throw. Wolfe sank two free throws and the half ended with Sheboygan still out in front, 11 to 7, West trimmed the margin to one point when Straubel sank a gift toss and Schllawsky followed with a basket from the center of the floor. Grauman added two points with sm other long shot and then hit the hoop CONTINUED ON PAGE 14, COLUMN 8 PAROCHIAL LEAGUE GAME SS.

West at Oshkosh. Marinette at Sheboygan. Manitowoc at Appleton. BY JOHN M. WALTER In a classic basketball battle, played at Manitowoc gymnasium last iilght, East High school earned Its first Fox River Valley conference victory by subduing Manitowoc, 20 to 15. Coach Means' cagers, defeated last week by Appleton, seemed to do f-verything right in their second conference start, and after being held even-up for three quarters by a harl fighting home team, they pulled away in easy fashion during the last few minutes to put the contest In the bag. Mikol, playing with two sprained wrists and a bad leg or two, was tho offensive threat of the game. Fed by Daniels and Heltsky, the speedy East High forward was used as ths spearhead of the Means' attack, responding with three baskets and as many gift twirls for high acorir.S honors. Manitowoc's defense was smooth during most of the game, but in the latter quarter some uncanny shooting by Daniels, Mikol and Sin-klewicz turned the trick for the visitors. Daniels Start Scorlnf Play was not many minutes old before Daniels, on Schuette's foul, clicked with a free toss to start s-r-r-lng. Koebke tied the count a few minutes later on Neidl's miscue, and then Langenkamp, elongated Manitowoc center, batted in a basket on a rebound attempt to give the horns team the advantage.

Schuetta contributed a free toss for Manitowoc and the first quarter score was 5 to 4, East leading. , Personal fouls became the order of the day as the second period wm launched, with Referee Ladwlg watch, lng the game like a chicken hawk watches a mouse. Finally, after ev cral gift attempts had succeeded, Langenkamp broke through for a pretty basket on the dead run, tying tha score at seven all. Muller came right back on a similar play to give East Its half time lead of 9 to 7. Gets Free Throw Both teams were better at advanc ing the ball after the third quarter opened, but there was no scoring until Sinkiewlca dropped the second of two free tosses on Langenkamp's per sonal foul. A few seconds later Lan genkamp did a Budrunas with one hand under the basket for a Manito woc score, and when Koebke sunk a side court attempt, Manitowoc grab bed an 11 to 10 lead. Koebke and Mikol alternated to maintain the a4 vantage, each sinking a basket. Heltsky was given a free throw, and the Manitowoc crowd booed as hs shot in an attempt to rattle him. He missed the attempt. Then soma brilliant pass work, with Daniels and Mikol handling the ball, resulted in on East basket by the latter, who sunk a one handed flip. Daniels was fouled cn a goal attempt, and ths crowd hissed him as ho attempted both, and missed the pair.
