Basketball fans who like tbelr game rough spent a pleasant eve ning at the High school gymnasium Wednesday night as Jerry Graham's Battle Creek High quintet main tained an undefeated record for the season by nosing out Jackson in a Five-A conference tussle, 23 to 20 Wednesday's contest was one of the wildest and roughest seen on the local court in several seasons but luckily the 16 players who saw action escaped with only scratches and a few bumps. Only 22 fouls were called in the game but three players were forced to leave the fray. Center Joe Medich of Bat tle Creek and Center Orn Osborn of Jackson were detected shoving and hauling at each other around the free throw lane In the last quarter and Referee Sherman Hicks asked them to leave while Forward Bob Payne of Battle i Creek was charged with four fouls and finally had to depart late in the fray with the Bearcats holding a slight edge. Bearcat Protect Lead Rivalrv between the two schools in all sports has been keen for several years but never did the two basketball teams battle more earn stlv than thev did Wednesdav.- In several instances blows were ex changed as feelings were hurt by shoving or loose elbows. It was a case of outlasting the other fellow and the Bearcats finally seized the lead late in the third quarter that led to a second straight conference triumph. Fans who saw the game here Immediately booked passage for the return engagement in Jackson. Jackson ran up a 5-0 lead on 'the local cagers as the game got underway and it wasn't until barely a minute remained in the first period when Payne tossed in a free throw on Esch's foul. Three baskets were scored after that before the quarter ended and field goals by Captt Tom Popovlch and Del Winans enabled Battle -Creek to pull up to 7-5. Medich opened the second period by hooking in a left handed pivot shot to tie the count. Bob Coin put the Vikings ahead with a rebound shot but Payne deadlocked the score with a hook shot. For the first time Battle Creek took the lead at 11-9 on Payne's bucket as he took a long pass on a fast break but this only lasted until Osborn got the ball for a field goal from under the hoop. Medich's bat-in shot put the locals ahead again but Just before the half Stan Pyclak broke away for a basket and the teams left the court at half-time tied, 13-all. Jackson repeated the first quarter opening as the second half started when Coin bagged a dog shot and Eddie McQuillan scored from close range to run the Viking margin to 17-13. This beckoned the Beartcat offense to start moving and Ray Teeter tallied a dog shot. With three minutes left in the third period Payne knotted the count with a set overhead shot and Medich batted in a field goal as the players milled around the basket to give Battle Creek a 19-17 margin. Teeter's push shot ended the scoring and the locals started the final stanza boasting a four-point advantage of 21-17. Locals Never Trail. Rattle Creek never trailed in the last eight minutes and only five points were scored as tne two nnintfta tried desoerately to keep possession of the ball. Larry Ruede tinned In a Jackson basket and with the quarter half over Battle Creek held this two-pomi ieaa.

Pro-sional football, roused from its off season hibernation by the $200,000 sale of the Detroit Lions to Chicago and New York interests, was returning to its winter retreat today as the new management began mopping up uncompleted details 01 the franchise transfer. Argument over the playing con tract of Earl (Dutch) Clark, still held by the Detroit Lions, ended on a sentimental note with the new regime willing to give Dutch his re- STAHL TIES FOR WESTERN LEAD Posts 70 To Match Cards Of Little and Krueger In San Francisco Golf. San Francisco, Jan. 18. (U. P.) Lawson Little, Al Krueger, and Marvin Stahl set the pace today as the field of the San Francisco $5,000 match play open golf tour nament, cut almost in half Dy first- round casualtf3s, swung into tht final qualifying round. The three professionals got 70's over the long fairways of the par 72 Lake Merced Country clut course to tie for the medal on the first day. The Winter golf brigade could not touch the competitive course record of 69 set in 1936. It took 80's or better to go out today with the 120 survivors of the original field of 220. The best 32 medal scores tonight will go out Friday in the first of four 18-hoIe rounds that will determine the finalists for Sunday's 36-hole climax. Eight players had 71s: Craig Wood. Vito Machado, George Beer, Charles Sheppard, Sam Byrd, Fred -Whetmore, Dick Metz and Jimmy DemareL In the fight were the "big three", of the- California Winter, golf cir. cuit.

One of the feature games of the Five-A conference basketball race takes place here Friday night, when unbeaten Lansing Central and Battle Creek clash with first place as the prize. Central paved the way for this top-notch attraction ; Jty nosing out Eastern here Wednesday night, 25 to 24, when Negro Hugh Davis, one of the best all-around athletes in the conference, looped in a basket from mid-court in the last 10 sec-ionds of play to give the Big Reds their victory. r Just! a few seconds previously Ferry Rathburn had put Eastern ahead with a folldw-iip shot Eastern tod at the half, 15-10. lease but hoping that he will - remain the keynote of Lion tradition without playing for any other team. George (Potsy) Clark, who coached Dutch for six years and who has been returned, to leadership of the Lions by the new owners, said that Dutch, now coaching at Cleveland, would be given his player's contract if he asks for it. Last fall the Lions refused to surrender Dutch Clark's playing rights when he asked for the contract shortly before the Lions and Rams met in Cleveland. "If Dutch wants his release and I hope he doesn't I'm ready to give It to him," Potsy said. "But just as Lou Gehrig was given a permanent place on the Yankee roster, we'd like to see Dutch keep his number seven jersey and the number one spot on the Detroit Lions roster, in which he led the boys to their only league title, and twice led the league in scoring. "For sentiment's sake we dont want to see him close his active career as a player on another team. We don't intend to recall him and I don't think he intends to resume a, player's role if he were released. But we'd like to be able to call Dutch back in 1960 and put him in that number seven jersey Just for old time's sake." There was a less sentimental note in the mopplng-up operations. In answer to the claim of the deposed head . coach, Elmer C. (Gloomy Gus) Henderson, that his contract still had two years to run at $10,000 a year, and hints that he might bring suit against the management. William A. Alfs, vice-president of the old management and reported to be president under the new re gime, repeated that the Hender Bon contract was not among the effects transferred in the sale, and that any such libility would rest with the old corporation. "The contract was for two more years, all right, but not at $10,000 a year," he added. Potsy Clark said he would interview Heartley (Hunk) Anderson, assistant coach last year, but it appeared first consideration would go to George Chrlstensen, former Lion tackle who was Potsy s as sistant last year. There was no mention of , the prospects for Bill Howard, backfield coach who came with Henderson from the Los An geles Bulldogs. Clark also declined to comment on the current Lion roster and the draft rights in connection with possible additions and trades nntil after further study.

As an old handwriting on the wall expert it is my guess that the recent freeing of 91 baseball serfs by Judge -Kenesaw Mountain Lan-dis will eventually prove to be the first step toward a general releasing from bondage of all basebal-players. You know, of course, that baseball players are the nearest things we have to slaves in this country. They don't reach their owners in clanking chains, after a hot and dismal crossing in the hold of a ship, but once delivered they become vassals of their masters and can be traded and sold about as it they were dumb animals. The fact that some of them are dumb animals doesn't alter the unfair ness of their treatment. . I have no doubt but that some of the free-thinkers among the flayers will seek means to capitalize on the not quite week-old edict of Judge Landis. They are certain to see it as the first exposure of a chink in the armor of the owners and attempt to do Bomethinfe about it. They also will draw courage and confidence from the fact that baseball's highest power is interested in seeing to it that the players get an even break from the operating powers. I never have seen a standard baseball contract (few laymen ever have, for that matter) but from what I can gather it must be more binding then a trunkful of mustard plasters, and as hard to break as a Mississippi roustabout's skull. It must be a one sided instrument, too, as one-sided as a blackboard, because I never heard of a player who bad any success, , marked or otherwise, in trying to release himself , from its clutches. Once a player signs with a club that club has him at its mercy. It can sell him to the Pigeon Toe team in Upper Arkansas if it wants to, or it can trade him for a smoked ham and a grandfather' clock to the last place team in the Twilight league of Scratch Ankle, Georgia. Or, if the fancy strikes the owners, the player can be given a soft spot on the bench COMISKEY HEIRS HALT CLUB SALE Widow Of Late White Sox Owner Will Oo To Court In Halting Action. Chicago, Jan. 18. (U. P.) Thomas J. Sheehan. attorney fot the widow of J. Louis Comiskey, said today he had been informed that the First National Bank of Chicago would seek permission of the probate court to sell the Chicago White Sox baseball club. He said that the petition would be filed with Judge John F. O'Coti nell today and that the heirs would contest the proposed action on the ground that It was contrary to Comiskey's wishes expressed in his will. Spokesmen for the bank claimed that the best interests of the estate would be served by the sale, he said. Comiskey. who died July 18, 1939, left the estate In trust foi Mrs. Grace Reidy Comiskey and their three children. Mrs. Comiskey received halt of the estate and the other half was divided among the children. The First National' Bank was named trustee. The estate owns 7,450 shares of stock in the White - Sox which have a par value of $100 each. Harry Orabiner, White Sox secretary, owns the remaining 50 shares. POSTUM NO. 2 LEAGUE. Willard Roberts paced the Postum No. 2 Bowling league in singles Wednesday with a 606 series. His games were 202, 202 and 202. Other scores were Bill Begg 573 (203, 226), Frank Burgle 483.

If the player rebels against any of these or a dozen other measures, his rebellion will be ever bit as effective as a fire alarm in a home for the deaf. A show ol spirit often results in a slash oi salary and if a player resents this to the point of holding out he is often marked with baseball'b equivalent of the bar sinister and then he is welcome nowhere. A team could offer a star player $500 for the season and the player would have to take it or quit baseball. He couldn't refuse it and 'sell his services to a higher bidder. As most baseball players are not capable of adapting them selves to another profession, tbe have to take what is offered them or retire, and this is cutting off the nose to spite the face. In most instances, they take what Is given them. I have often heard arguments as to whether haseball contracts would stand the scrutiny of court. One school says yes, an other says no. As a - man whose knowledge of the law is limited to the penalty for parking by fire plugs and smoking in any but the last four rows of buses, I would not like to express an - opinion But don't be surprised if Judge Landis' late ruling doesn't prompt some baseball player -to try to find out. ALBION. HOPE TO RENEW RIVALRY Unbeaten M. I. A. A. Cage Leaders Clash Friday In Holland Armory. " Albion, Jan. 18. Albion College's veteran basketball quintet, which missed winning the M. I. A.

The two clubs have split their annual home and home series the last two seasons and such is quite likely again this year as Hope has a high scoring team just as heavily studded with . veterans . as Albion The two teams are now tied for first place in the M. I. A. A. standings with three wins apiece. Albion is likely to start Steve Beban" and "Bill Feduniak at for wards, Charles VanderLinde, sorv omore from Muskegon, at center, and Dave Luxenberg and Fred Cooks at guards. Hope will probably, start Ken Honholt and Ade Slikkers, guards, Lee Brannock, center, and Ray Lokers, forward, all veterans, with a sophomore, Vanden Berg or Van Wieren, at the other forward berth..
