Baseball Extension for P. C. Is League T.O.S ANGKLKS, Oct. 2ft. (UP) — Possible extension of the Pacific Coast League baseball season from 23 to 27 weeks was expected to be the main topic of discussion today as an executive session of the league convened in the Biltmoro hotel. In the past, the 23-week schedule has resulted In an unquestionable distribution with some of the teams playing as few ns 12 games with weak teams and as many as 27 with strong teams. If the schedule were extended, loach team would play each of the others 27 times for a, ISH-gumo season, ending September HO. Kxtonsion of the season would, however, conflict with the present dates for the governor's cup series. Representatives of tho various coast teams are expected to decide whether to abandon or continue the series, which this past season, was finan- ciully successful for the first time in its nine-year history. Clarence Rowland, president of the league, said the change of ownership of the San Diego Padres would eome tip for approval. Other topics included attendance at the eastern meeting of the National Association of Minor Leagues In Buffalo, N. Y., December fi, raising the draft price from $7,000 to $ in.000 and other matters "pertaining to the good of baseball. 721 19th ST 12 Noon Tomorrow Doors Open 11:30 a. m.

I'D.—Mayhe it doesn't make sense to figure that a team could go through the entire first half of its season and win just, one gaiiie and still be a potential candidate for the New Years Day Rose Bowl football game. Hut that was tho situation with the Bruins of the University of California at I>os Angeles today and there is enough of a story that goes with it to develop a degree of logic. The Bruins broke into the winners' circle for the first time last week end when they gave St. Mary's Civilians a thorough drubbing and when it was over Coach .limmy T'he- lan of the losers tabbed them as stronger than either California or Southern California. Their opportunities will be better from now on when the California members of the Pacific Coast Conference meet in the second go-around of their wartime schedules. For one thing, when the navy shuffles its personnel about after completion of training courses next week, the UCLANS will suffer fewer losses than either California or .Southern California. Although they will lose their left halfback, Johnny Koesch, who hns done most of their scoring, they have two other good running backs in Vic Smith and Jack Boy. California, the current conference leader, will suffer tho heaviest loss, eleven top players including star guards Rill Ilachten and Dick Madigan arid first string backs Jim Mulr and George Quist. V. S. C. loses Speedster Gordon Gray, among others, and Washington its star center Gordon Berlin and high scoring fullback Keith Decourcey. The Bruins get another chance to redeem themselves tomorrow against St. Mary's Preflight, but the hip game on the coast won't be until Monday night at Los Angeles when the Washington Huskies get their chance for revenge against Southern California for the thorough drubbing they took in the Rose Bowl last January 1. Behind the story of that game Is the season-long campaign of Ralph (Pest) AVelch, coach of the Huskies, to get his team "keyed" for that game. In the Washington dressing room is a big sign which is changed every day. It reads: "Only .. more days until we meet the Trojans." ^ ^BB^ ~^^ay «/ ilk to the Music of Bob Sisson and His Orchestra SATURDAY in Kern County's Most Popular Dance Spot in Downtown Bakerseld Within Easy Walking Distance ON THE CORNER OP SIXTEENTH and "EYE" Admission CUc Including Tax Servicemen 50c Including Tax ROLLING HILLS RIDING CLUB Will Sponsor Amateur Calf Roping and Miniature Rodeo With Steer Riding, Pony Races, Etc. Sunday, October 22 2:00 P. M. Sterling Road and Oregon Two Blocks Off Miles Street Phone 2-2789 Louis-Conn Query Troubles Matchmaker By JACK CTDDV T'nll»d Prpwi Staff Correspondent NKW YORK, Oct. 20.—Little Xat Rogers Is not only the busiest matchmaker in boxing history, but he soon will he the diz/.lost if enthusiasts keep flooding his phones with quei fes about a Louis-Conn fight. "What's the matter with people?" Rogers demands as ho comes storming out of his cubicle, with sparse dark hair awry and spectacles askew. "All day long those phones keep going: Louis-Conn! Louis-Conn! Louis-Conn! and me up to my ears in work—makin 1 matches for Ike Jacobs—72 shows in a year. Swiftly I'm goin' nuts." The diminutive parier of gladiators is in a first-degree dither. All is confusoin with him. The sltua tion is completely screwy, he ex plains. We are at the peak of war. Louis and Conn are in the army. Xo one knows when they'll get out. He and Mike Jacobs don't know when or where they'll fight—or if they'll ever fight. But every day, the stories in the papers—"they're goin' to fight over here; they're goin' to fight over there"—"Louis says this; Conn says that"—sports writers call, checking—mayors .oC cities call, to get the fight in their town—managers call, to get their boxers on the card—and the fans swamp the phones. Boxing writers grin delightedly at Nut's perturbation, although secretly they sympathize with him. They hope Rogers gets "hotter"; because sometimes when he gets "red hot," he screams. Mike Jacobs screams when he gets "hot." Nat has been Mike's head matchmaker for nearly five years; so now Nat screams too. The writers sympathize with Rogers because they appreciate the tremendous task confronting him now: Arranging for 72 Bhows at Madison Square Garden and St. Nick's arena in the year ending next October 1. This means making matches for 504 bouts, including preliminaries and emergency brawls. It means match, ing 100S opponents, omftting: substitutes. No matchmaker in puglistic history every attempted anything like this; and particularly none in wartime when presentable pugs are scarcer than elephant wings. This unprecedented boxing schedule resulted from Jacobs' radio contract with a razor company for 52 Friday- night shows in a year and the decision to stage 20 Monday-night cards, as usual, at St. Nick's.

A. and Jolting Julius Davis of St. Mary's Pro-Flight, will be tho crowd magnet as the Bruins and Airdevils clash here tomorrow in the Memorial Stadium. Roesch is the sophomore sensation who had gained «31 yards in 5'JVfc minutes of playing time, scored seven of his team's 10 touchdowns, und compiled an average of more than 10 yards a minute. Davis is the lad who came very near beating the Southern California Trojans last week in Fresno, lie came to the Airdevils unheralded and unsung, with only a littlo experience with the Clarksburg, Mo., high school team to recommend him. Relegated to the "goof squad," he soon won the respect of Coach Jules Sikes. The Trojans say he's one of the best they've seen.
