Ella Bashara and Jim Gooa' Henry, who are trying to monopolla mala bout role In Bbreveport art to clash In the final event of tbo double beader with Doug Wycoff of Little Bock. Ark, coming to grips with Karl Dana of vaio. la me other ma ten. Za an effort to bare both matches turn, out decisive winners Promoter Jullua Sigel has placed a two-hour time limit on each contest. In the Bashera-Henry event the double referee system will be used. Thl waa decided upon when Baabara filed objectlona to Billy Riley handling the bout. As an appetizer to the double wind-up the popular Walter Padolak will come to gripe with Farmer Burns, a 225 -pounder from Omaha and nephew of the late Farmer Burna, who waa a terror la the heavyweight grappling ranks over a period of years. Thfc will be Bums' first appearance la 8hreveport. The opening bout on the card will be limited to one fall in 30 minutes. The Henry and Bashara match Is an echo to the meeting or these huskies recently when Bashara lost a cash wager and a wheelbarrow ride to his opponent. It will mark about the fourth time Bashara has tried to eliminate Henry. Both men are trying to hang on here In main bout roles to gain the major part of the purses paid for the weekly wrestling events. Bashara, a two-fisted grap-pier, is confident he can defeat Henry. "Henry bas bad every break a wrestler could obtain In our maches," Bashara said, "in addition to help from the referee. He's rough and strong and that helps blm out. I can beat blm at any tactics be cbosea If the refree La lm partial. " In the first half of the double windup Doug Wycoff will expose himself to Davis, jlu jltau comeback. Davis' hold bas flattened Jim CUn-stocic and Jim Henry here la the past two weeks. Davis learned the attack from a Japanese llgnt-heavywelght and has been featuring It over his famous leg-breaker la recent months. Like the Bashara-Benry bout the Davis-Wycoff event la a return match. Wycoff tackled Davis la a one-hour match recently and surprised a large audience by out-wrestling and out-roughing bis heavier opponent Davis began using foul tactics to save himself, and after he had slightly injured Wycoff with an Illegitimate attack and weakened the Little Bock man with body punches the referee disqualified the Ohloan. Wycoff looks for a victory over Davis to place him In a special main event against a leader In bis profession. Little Is known here of Burns who meets Padolak, but the report Is that he was carefully coached by his uncle for a grappling career. He Is strong, fast and rough, but probably not as scientific or powerful as Fadolak.

An at' tempt by Samuel H. Collom of Philadelphia to move the North American Zone Davis Cup finals from Forest Hills to Philadelphia was defeated by the executive committee of the United States Lawn Tennis aasocla tlon Saturday after a bitter two-hour debate revealed a deep cleavage In the association ranks. Collom, president of the association in 1923-29, charged that the Davis Cup committee of the U. 8 I. T. A., Is trying "to centralize all tennis here in New York" and ae cused them of not being able to see "beyond the tall building of Man hattan." After reading a bitter four-page criticism against the association. Col lorn moved that the matches be tak en from the West 8ide club to the Germantown Cricket club, where they were held last year. The motion was seconded by John C. Perry, Jr, also of Philadelphia. After a long and heated discussion. President Hoi-combe Ward of New Tork ruled the motion out of order. Ward said the award of the matches was the job of tbe Davis Cup committee and not In the province of the executive com mittee. Explaining that be was In Florida when the Davis Cup committee met and that he Inadvertently did not receive tbe association's announce ment of the meeting, Collom asked that the committee hear his argu ment anyway. I tell you the taking away of tbe match from the Germantown club is a blow to amateur tennis in this country." Collom said, "and the manner of Its taking away sows the seeds of discord among us." Is New Tork to stage aU the ln tematlonal matches because of sup posedly greater money returns?" he asked. 'If you want to centralize all ten- nla here in New York, and stifle ten nis growth In other parts of the country, let us do It openly In our amy elected body," he suggested. Collom started the argument week ago by charging that members of the association were trying to estanusn a New York tennis "die tatorshlp." He was criticised In today's meet ing by Jones W. Mersereau of New York for "Judging the case In the newspapers." Mersereau character ized these tactics as "Just plain bad taste." according to Collom. The North American Zone finals will probably bring Australia and the united States together May 29 30-31. The U. 8. team meeta Japan at san Francisco, April 80, May 1-2, and on the aame dates Australia meets Mexico at Mexico City. The American and Aussles are fevered to win.

Director Miss McKee Sees Double Standard in Sports, Approves It Denver. April 4. (P) College girls with a liking for sports have scant hope of ever competing with men in intercollegiate athletics.

Here for the central district physical education association's convention, she said today college girls are face to face with a "double standard" In the field of athletics, whether they like It or not. "We want girls' athletics to dodge the pitfalls into which men's intercollegiate sports have fallen the dangers of commercialism, over-emphasis, proselyting, and so on," she said. Miss McKee said sne oeueves oig ten conference officials acted wisely in barring a University of Illinois girt student from playing In the school's golf team in competition with other colleges. 'A girl such as that, an expert golfer, might be subject to high pressure because she has such ability," Miss McKee Hid. "Then, too, there would be the chance she would receive undue attention from her athletic Instructors to the neglect of other girls less skillful, yet having as much right to play and Instruction."
