TODAY'S SPORT PARADE Johnson and But/one/ May Prove Important To Boston Red Sox 4-H Tournament Finals Tonight Coaeli Dill Godwin will have a chance to get a line on his 1946 football squad when the chicks open their two weeks session of spring training at Haley Field Monday afternoon. A total of 32 candidates for (he Maroon and White were issued uniforms and equipment yesterday afternoon and will take the field shortly after 3:30 o'clock Mondaj for their first drill. Also scheduled to report here Monday was Firman "Nig" Bynum University of Arkansas tackle who won All-Southwestern Conference honors In 1941 and who also wor honorable mention for AH-American. The former Razorback s(« will remain here during the two ,weeks of training and will assis Godwin with the Chicks. Bynun will devote most of his atlentioi to the linemen and the local boy are expected to pick up quite a few tricks from this athlete, who in spite of the fact that he did not play on a championship team, was one of the most powerful linemen in Ihe Southwest. The Chicks arc due to be initiated into the mysteries of the tricky "T" formation during the next two weeks. Godwin intends to use this system which he says offers by far the most deceptive form of attack and in which lie was thoroughly grounded when playing with tlie Fort Pierce, Fla.., Navy Amphibs. Southeastern Bans Athletes Under Contract By OSCAR FIIAI.EY United Press H|liirts Writer SARASOTA, P'la., March 1C. »UP) —Two heroes homo from the wars were just unsung hopefuls today at the camp of the Boston Reel Sox but to Miumgpi 1 Joe Cionln they liny mean the difference between the American League pennant nnd Bcnn Town version of the Bronx cheer. One Is Earl Johnson, n Seattle southpaw who won a battlefield commission when he wns cut oh* three, days during Die scrap nl Bastogno. The other is the blh'gcst >" nn '" cnmp, six fool five inch Wilbur (Bull) Biillsintt who served In the artillery nt Leytc. "We hiwc to sink or swim with these two," Cronin cxplalnlecl he contemplated his reserve pitching strength in hopes of bringing lost six for Rocky Mount, N. C., awaited pennant. Rutland, a 28-yeM'-old tosscr from Terre Haute. Intl.. is well known to the Jans at Fenway Park. They nm> not recall Ills impressive war record in the Philippines lint they dc know that in 1042 before going off In khaki he was one of the brightest prospects in the game. Tall, slim and brown-haired Hutland-had been with Minneapolis and Louisville using -mostly sidenrm stuff and a carefully mixed assortment of pitches. He did well enough to merit a shot in 10-12. It wasn't a very auspicious opening for Butland dropped the duke. But from lore on through he knocked oft very team in the American League wind up with a 7 and 1 record. Johnson is built along the same ncs reaching up a rangy six feet, wo inches nnd is the same widely heralded star who came to the Bo- By WILLIAM II. TILLY BIRMINGHAM. Ala., March 1C (UP)—G. I. athletes who have signed professional sports contracts will not be allowed to compete in the Southeastern Conference. ' The ruling wns announced following a meeting of the SEC Executive Committee here yesterday The group voted to uphold a looi: bylaw which declares a student who has signed a professional contrac' or "entered into an agreement ex plicit or implicit" is ineligible to competition. The ban applies I both returning veterans nnd non veterans alike. A ruling by the five-man execu tive group however permits sturienl transferring from the U. S. Navi . Academy or U. S. Military Acnd emy to a conference school to be eligible for athletic activity. Under this ruling, Tom "Shorty" McWilliams, Mississippi State backfield nee at West Point, and Don Whitmire, Naval Academy tackle, from Alabama would be eligible lor sox from the campus of St. Mary's that was in 1Q40 nnd he won 12 nnd lost so xfor Rocky Mount. N. C., before being brought up for a trial. He won six nnd lost two for the Red Sox at the end of that year and In 19-»1 won four against five losses before entering the armed forces. The lanky 27-year-old native of Redmond, Was))., who mnke.s his home in San Mntco, Cal.. started as a first baseman In lilah school. "I began pitching when our teams Just ran out of pitchers." he said. "It sure was a lucky break we didn't have any Fellers in our school." Johnson has been in there pitching ever since, particularly during the mess In Europe. For courage on the field he was awarded the bronze star and then came the breakthrough at Bastogne. A platoon leader, Earl was cut off for three clays several limes. Ills uniform was ripped by bullets bul he brought through his detail an<! was awarded the silver star am! promotion to first lieutenant. "It was rough," Johnson recallet at the hustling training camp o: the Red Sox. "but this Is rouyl too, trying to get in shape to clinch a job with this team. I had a good fast ball and fine curve before I went Into service nnd I can't lie certain yet whether nine months of continuous action hurt my mm or my control." To which Cronin turns a prayerful glance. After years of waiting and spending of a young fortune for material this looks like It might bo it for Yawkey. Joe knows that Bnllnnd and Johnson will have much to sny In ihe final analysis. Snead Ahead By Stroke At Jacksonville play. A ruling introduced by Dr. W. D. Funkhouser of Kentucky wns approved which allows returning servicemen to re-enter their college with a clean scholastic slate, regardless of their grades at the institution before entering service. Left to the interpretation and enforcement of individual schools affected were application of the five- year rule, eligibility of n returning veteran whose past record does nol meet certain rules, nnd application of eligibility rules to a student during the time residence nnd attend ance rules were in suspension. The group approved an Intcrpre tation that the eligibility ban fo students who had participated ii varsity athletics at a college, als applied to colleges other than thos in the Southeastern Conference. Conference coaches will meet her at 10 a.m. tomorrow to approve th roster of football officials recom mended by the committee on offl ciating.

Ihe winners taking the best two ut of three falls. Ming comes here well recommcn- ied from previous promoters. He must have made good In the past or Meroney would not have booked him ot>poslte Roberts. His bag of tricks is well stocked with Items that Roberts has probably never met up with before. However, If v. know "Rough Red," Ming will have to delve deeply into his bag of tricks. Cozell is the only man who has given Roberts much trouble here. Many wrestlers are good with their fists but not all of these have he power In their punches that Cozell has.
