M. C. A. fioor. Belt and Cascade tied , for first place In the regular league schedule and the special game was arranged to determine the championship and the right to enter the state Independent amateur basketball tournament which is to be played at Butte Thursday. Friday.-and Saturday , of , this week. Superior passing, plus a good grade of basket shooting, gave Belt her victory Tuesday night. The boys from the valley town vere, ahead from the start, and 'while Cascade was a constant threat until the last few minutes of play, the spectators were convinced that the better team won. Cascade players .missed many easy shots during the course of . the game. This, combined with the fact that they did not have as many chances at the basket, served to bring defeat. During the entire first half Cascade trailed but only a few points, and supporters of . the . river town , team hart the Idea that their squad would coma through to victory. JBxxt in the second half Belt showed even more than she had in the first two periods and steadily pulled away to victory by a good margin: Zlle Is Star The work of Joe Zlle. forward for Belt, was outstanding. He handled the ball better than any other man on the floor andJa the second half followed up his own and other players' shots for scores time and again. This enabled him to carry off high scoring honors of the evening with a total of 20 points. 16 of them .being scored In the last two periods. "Mutt" Leland. who used to play for Belt high, worked well at forward until he was Injured shortly after the start of the third period and had to be removed from the game. Perrlne and Monroe did most of the scoring for Cascade, but Zlle alone made as many points as, the two Cascade players together. Perrlne took plenty of shots which failed to connect and advanced the ball Into scoring positions many times more. The game became rather rough at times, but no one was ejected from the contest because of personal fouls. Both teams converted a fair percentage of gift throws. Belt took the lead early In the game and ran the count to 7-2 before Cascade called time out to work out a plan to break up Belfs tlpoff play which was getting excellent results. Perrlne s two free throws and another field goal gave Cascade six points before the end of the first quarter, but In the meantime, Belt had run her total to 11. Cascade Threatens Belt spurted at the start of the second quarter, but Cascade came right back to cut her opponent's lead to three points. Then Belt swung Into action again and made the count 21 to 14 at half time. During the second half the game belonged to Belt virtually all of the time. The valley squad made the score 29 to 16. with the third, quar-tpr about half gone, and then scored 10 more points to 6 for her rival in the remainder of the period.

POWERS Special CarrMVMHlent f Th Tribune. Copyright. 1930. CHICAGO, March 4. (CPA) American league baseball clubs are getting away from the custom of having captains. The captain Is a relic of the old days of baseball wheh a manager could be anyone and often was. Then the captain was presumed to be a fellow who knew all about the game and wore the largest sideburns. He ran the team while the manager was busy collecting fares or chasing foul balls. In modern baseball the manager is supposed to be the font of wisdom and strategy and few of the younger leaders care to divide their authority even in a small measure. So the captains are disappearing from many big league fields. Donle Bush, the new manager of the White Sox, Is the latest one to vote against a captain. The White Sox nearly always have had an alleged field leader, but this season will struggle along with only Bush giving orders and probably will do better than any home team since Kid Gleason removed himself from the south side club. Extra Iough Helps Bush says a captain either, takes his title too seriously or pays no attention to it at all. And either way the team suffers. Captains usually are more interested In the $500 extra dough that goes with the title than the responsibility, and the appointment often causes jealousy among other players. Bench maragers who dress In mufti always will need a captain to tote the batting order to the umpires and do the arguing for their bosses, who cannot, leave the bench so long as they wear blue serge suits for fear of getting mixed up with the umpires, groundkeepers or announcers. Connie Mack always has had a captain but of recent years the assistant has been a superannuated player who seldom took an active part in the game. But Connie never delegated any managerial powers to his captain and probably never will so long as he can motion with a score card.' Wllbert Robinson has had captains during the last several years and of a necessity. Uncle Robby has permitted himself to accumulate an overgrown waistline and when he was carrying protests from the bench to the plate umpires often found themselves overtaken with darkness and there was an epidemic of late dinners wherever the Robins played. Iluegins Opposed Them Miller Huggins never went In much for captains when he was heading the New York Yankees to six pennants and neither did Bill Carrigaa when the Boston Red Sox were a baseball club. Trls Speaker was another who believed captains were a tremendous waste of time. "Spoke-could protest umpires decisions better than any captain ever in the game. The National league clings more closely to the custom of captaincies. Where there will be not more than two functioning in the American league there is a likelihood of six and probably seven of the National teams having nominal field leaders. The National, being the senior organization, is more of a stickler for tradition and captains are traditional if nothing else. ATHLETIC?? TAKE IT EASY-FORT MYERS., Fla..

Arthur Flynn, fiery Irishman from Lawrence, Mass., cracked me on the chin harder than I ever was hit he-fore or since. It happened In a 10-round contest at Providence. R. I, Sept. 26. 1928. Arthur, a schoolboy sensation, was a tremendous puncher, particularly with his left. He was knocking a lot of the boys flatter than a hoarse high C note. I hadjjo doubt I could outpoint him, even though I had read that he was slated to win the world's title. I stepped about in the first round looking the boy wonder over. I stabbed him with a few . straight lefts. I wanted to warm up before putting on full speed. I decided on a change of pace in the second, planning to mix things up a bit. As often happens the other fellow got the same notion a fraction of a second sooner. With the gong for the second round Flynn got the Jump on me. A furious rush forced me into a neutral corner. I saw an opening and shot over a right. Then I felt a curious sensation. I thought a load of bricks had dropped on my Jaw. Flynn had landed his deadly left hook inside my right. Stretched on the canvas. I came to as the referee yelled "two.' My mind cleared quickly but I took full advantage of the chance to relax and think matters over. I didn't get up until the count of nine. . - The crowd was thrilled to see me getting my pretty silk tights mussed in the rosin. I had paid to see Flynn's terrific left book. I felt it. But I weathered the storm. Beginning with the next round I painted my Initials all over the schoolboy's anatomy. I won the decision. SMITH GETS JOB NEW YORK. March 4.

PETERSBURG. Fla March 4. (JT A chill, biting wind swept acroes the park, but perspiration dropped from the ruddy face of Babe Ruth. Grunting and -hollering." posing for cameramen or exchanging wise cracks with bystanders, the big fellow, caplesa, in the heavy white gym shirt, cavorted around first base tike a rookie Just up from a class B league. In short, the great man who has yet to go through the momentous process of signing & 1030 contract was the life of the Yankee party, going through a snappy drill under the watchful eyes of Manager Bob Shawkey and First Lieutenant Arthur Fletcher. The camp and hotel lobby gossip is that a compromise will be reached by the end or this week on the salary issue by which Ruth will sign a one-year Contract for 85.000. This Is the figure the Babe demanded for a new three-year term of office. The club's best offer, which Ruth unhesitatingly rejected, was 75,000 for each of the next two years. The belief, however, la that Ruth Is Inclined to gamble on the future if he can have his own figure met at least this year. Jacob Ruppert, the Yankee owner, may be willing to concede this proposition when he arrives here Thurs day night to settle the situation in a personal conference with the big hitter. Then again, he may not. but there seems not the slightest reason to doubt that Ruth will sign. All the ballyhoo that his contract business has had is too valuable to be tossed overboard. . Ruth and the Yankees are bigger drawing cards than ever, to Judge from the crotrds of natives and tourists that have flocked out to see them drill the last few days. Automobiles with license plates from Maine to California. Ontario to Texas, pack the approaches to the park. The stands are filled, with men and boys as well as women and babes in arms. Ruth was fuH of chatter Tuesday. To a rookie from the corn country, at bat. he barked: "Come on. Broadway, what have ' you got?" As Lyn Lary juggled one at short, not feigning to throw the ball, the Babe shouted: "Hey. are you going to eat?" Then he obligingly leaped high for an imaginary ball to gratify an amateur photographer. A foul ball bounced off his ear and the Babe delighted the crowd with his clown ing.

One or two seasons may prove genius, but it takes longer to prove genius plus stamina and fiber. Some Camera Opponents News note: "Camera knocks out Fanner Lodge in second round." A few suggestions in the way of selecting opponents for the Italian giant: 1. The mummy of Rameses the Second or Third. 2. The remains of Sitting Bull or Tccumseh. If these suggestions don't happen to fit. there are several other formidable opponents at whom Camera can wave a glove at 10 paces and be guaranteed a quick knock-out. Lateral Passing The fact that several well known teams are to give more attention to lateral passing in spring practice recalls the fact that the best lateral passing pair in football last fall hapenened to be Gentle and Masters of Pennsylvania. Harvard has a first class lateral combination, in which Mays often handled the ball, and Mays was a fast-running, hard-running elusive back. , But Gentle and Masters made a perfect combination. Both were extremely fast, both could throw or receive and both had unusually sound judgment in picking the exact second or half second to let the ball go. They used it effectively enough to march to a touchdown with this play and to keep the westerners bothered all afternoon. They used it straight through the season, and finished with a brilliant exhibition against Cornell in the closing game. One of the main secrets of successful lateral passing. is picking the right time to mal:e the pass. If it is thrown a moment too soon or a moment too late it may lead to disastrous effects. Gentle and Masters timed the play correctly at almost every trial. Once in a while some mechanical fault developed, such as a short pass, but on two such occasions Masters scooped the ball from the ground at top speed and went along for several yards. These two will be together next fall, and by that date thev will be even more dangerous. With any sort of line support they should be two of the most effective backs of the year, east or west.

First, the professional four-ball championship gets under way at Miami. A trifle later there is the $15,000 La Gorce open, with Horton Smith, Farrell, Sarazen. Armour and others entered. Later there is the Southeastern open at Augusta, where Bobby Jones and Horton Smith will meet again. The North and South women's championship at Pinehurst will be full of action, .with Glenna Collett, Helen Hicks. Maureen Orcutt, Virginia van Wie and most of the leaders to match wood and iron. The North and South open at Pinehurst will bring another high class field together. Early in April several members of the Walker cup team, including Jimmy Johnston, amateur champion, are to battle at White Sulphur. The next five weeks will bring off more high class competitive golf than any spring has yet offered, as most of those engaged will be high spots along the top plateau. The race between the first box score and the opening daffodil is now said to be neck and neck, granting either has a neefc. Glenna Qualifies in Southern Meet With Score of 74 ST. AUGUSTINE.
