HP) Basketball turned to the post-season tournaments today after crowning all but two of the conference champions. Bids already have been extended to many of the top quintets for appearances in the National Invitational and NCAA champion ships. Ten schools have accepted in vitations, six to the Invitational tournament at Madison Square Garden starting March 14; three to the NCAA, also at the Garden starting March 21, and one to the Western NCAA at Kansas City March 22. Kentucky, Muhlenberg, St John's of Brooklyn, Bowling Green, West Virginia and Syracuse have accepted bids to the Invitational with two teams still to be named. It was expected that Arizona, Border Conference champions, will become the seventh entry with the other choice probably coming from the south. For some unexplained reason, DePaul, last year's invitational champions, has been bypassed despite this season's 17-5 record against tough competition. New York University's once- beaten aggregation, generally rat ed the top team in the nation, will represent district two in the eastern half of the NCAA. Har vard has accepted the bid to con tend for district one and Ohio State will compete for district four. No district three selection has been made as yet, with Duke, Southern Conference champs, North Carolina and Louisiana State regarded as the leading contenders. Only Baylor of district six has been named for the western half of the NCAA championships. Kite Tourney Is Postponed Ralph Carter, city recreation di rector, announced this morning that the kite tournament sched uled for yesterday afternoon at Magnolia heights has been post poned to March 21. Carter explained that there was not sufficient wind yesterday, and that the field was in poor condi tion. Jupiter's diameter is estimated at 11 times that of the' earth. STOP!

The Florida Industrial School for Boys selected a sixteen-boy squad of boxers to participate in the district Golden Gloves tournament through an elimination process lasting several weeks during which approximately 50 per cent of the white boys within the institution competed on a voluntary basis for places on the varsity boxing squad. The most promising . candidates' in each weight division were then given an intensive training and instruction program by the school's athletic director in preparation for the series of tournaments. Five members of the Florida Industrial School boxing squad were declared district champions as a result of their victories in the Panama City Golden Gloves tournament. These boys were Truman Holloway, Ralph Thompson, Joe Rodriguez, Race Schultz and Robert Adklson. These five boys, together with Frank Graella, Edward Murningham and Maurice Hope, were entered in the state Golden Gloves tournament in Jacksonville, the latter named boys being entered at the specific request of the Panama City sponsors because of the fine showing they made even in losing. In addition to Holloway, the Industrial School had one other state champion emerge from the Jacksonville tournament. He was i .'
