There were all too many nights like that for Mansfield high school's gridiron Tygers last fall. But you do remember the night, I'm sure, when big Bill Lewis, standing on the Tyger goal line, hoisted a punt high into the air, and the wind caught the ball and c a rrie d it back, and it bounced out of bounds one yard short of the line of scrimmage. This was one for the book, for sure, but you can always depend on Brooklyn to come up with something screwier. This one happened, so I'm told, in Flatbush this fall. During the C. C. N. Y.-Brooklyn college game, a City college back got off a tremendous 15-yard punt, and the wind blew the ball back into his arms, and he got away for a six-yard gain. This bests Britt Smith's catching of his own forward pass for a 10-yard lost. Mansfield fans who looked in vain for Ed Arlin's name in the Georgia lineups and lists of subs this season, after being informed early in the campaign that Ed and five other freshmen had made the - varsity, can now be told the answer. Seems that Ed and his frosh brethren got tired of sitting on the bench and watching the varsity perform, even though they were hardly bored by the antics of the great Frankie Sinkvvich and company. So Arlin and the five other yearlings declared: We want to go back to the freshman squad where we can get in a game now and then." So back they went and play they did, in all three of the games the freshmen played against Clemson, Auburn and Georgia Tech. Arlin played for three full quarters in the big Thanksgiving day game against Georgia Tech, No, I didn't get this yarn from him. A modest youth is young Ed Arlin, Among the spectators at the Turkey day game was Arlin's fathr who got a big kick out of riding to the scene of battle In the some railroad coach that carried Mrs. Frankle Mika let.

WASIIINGTON Sammy Baugh, great passer for the Washington Redskins, whose absence from the pro bowl game Sunday caused a furore, today vas strongly defended by Lee Artoe, Chicago Bear's tackle, who accused the National Football league of not doing its job in handling the contest. ' Artoe, who defeated the Redskins for the league All-Stars with a 43-yard field goal, disclosed that the Bears were going to refuse to play the game as scheduled if they had beaten the Redskins for the worlds championship, don't think Baugh deserves the raw deal he's getting," said Artoe, oho is spending a few ' days In Washington before en- listing in the navy. "All the boys on the All-Star squad, in eluding the Bears, think the same as I do about itand they think, too, that Sammy Is one of the swellest fellows they know. , "11 you want to pin the blame on somebody you should pin it on the league.

At his home in Bolan, Tex., Baugh said that he was unable to get transportation to the game. Corroborating his story, officials of the American Airlines were reported as saying that Baugh could not have made the trip in time Sunday as the Dallas-Philadelphia I flight had been cancelled because - of weather conditions.

By JACK MAHON N EW YORK --(INS, A mixed spring training program, in which major league baseball players would utilize every suitable day outdoors and complete the ,rest of their conditioning process Indoors, was forecast today by President Ford Frick of the National league. dp Frick, asked aboat possible training at home by the major league teams, as advocated by President Ed Barrow of the N. Y. Yankees, said, in his opinion, the idea would meet with the approval of the majority of the magnates and from his preliminary observation he thought most of the teams would try and line up indoor baseball cages or field houses as Insurance against bad weather in their spring drills. "I'd say, from the conversations I've bad, the training at home, or as near home as possible, plan would be carried aut," said Frick. "I've diacussed this matter Informally with several baseball men and most of them are trying to find Indoor arenas on which they can rely in case of bad weather, - "No one can predict what the weather will be like in any one area during March and April. While most of the National league men are in favor of starting the season on time, around April 12th or 15th, I don't think there would be any cat and dog fight over delaying the start of the Season if all teams were assured of an adequate traiting set-up." "Branch Rickey," said Frick, "told me the last time I talked to him he saw no reason the Dodgers or anyone else couldn't get Into condition in three weeks and start the season on time. He is definitely interested in the pmsibility of using every available day outdoors and completing the training program indoors." Warren Giles, general manager of the Cincinnati Reds, wired Frick yesterday strenuously ob.. jecting to the ,"confusion" which he claims now exists pertaining to the training program. , Giles demanded Frick call k meeting of the National league, at least, if both leagues couldn't agree to get together in the near future, to work out some "well-defined program." The Red of said responsible league officials should confer with ODT Director Joseph B. Eastman, on this question and be able to submit a comprehensive report to the special joint meeting of the National and American leagues. a Brother Giles can rest his weary head for we have been Informed by a most reliable source Conimissioner Kenesaw M. Landis, the high llama of the diamond game, has been apI preached by more than one baseball mogul, on the very lan10 subject, and practically petitioned to call an emergency meeting to discuss this subject. Said meeting will undoubtedly be called within the next two weeks and the plans of all clubs put on the table and hacked apart. Brooklyn hopes to train at New Haven, with the Yale university batting cage as indoor insurance while the Giants and Yankees may work out a scheme to utilize a spring training schedule at the Polo Grounds and Yankee stadium. Boston Red Sox announced they will train at Tufts college at nearby Medford, Mass. While the plans of the other clubs in both circuits are equally nebulous at the ntoment we understand the St. Louis teams are considering hot Springs, as a possible training site; the Chicago Cubs are eyeing French Lick Springs. Ind and Mein-nail is reported to be inspecting some Kentucky sites. Plans of the rest of the teams undoubtedly will not be made public until after the emergency confab when everyone will have a good cry, stop fumbling and come up with a definite, workable tiro-gram adaptable to their needs and the present emergency.

Allen Wants Hoops Raised Says Skyscraper Cagers Spoil Present Game. By JACK CUDDY NEW YORK 41Z---We leaned back stoically behind a desultory protection of ice cream and black coffee as the pink-skinned proles. sor with the horn-rimmed spec-tacks rose to the occasion. But our lethargy was blasted as the man behind the rimsDr. Forrest C. "Phog" Allen of Kansas U. launched a scathing attack against collegiate basketball and Its current misconceptions. It seemed impossible that the vitriolic words were coming from Dr. Allen, a medium-sized man with crisp brown hair who looks like YMCA Herder. But he was giving off violentlymuch to the surprise of newspaper men gathered at Toots Shor's Tavern. The theme of his verbal on. slaught was: "Let's have baskets 12 feet from the floor, and nertz to the NCAA." Dr. Allen, whose Kansas Jay. hawks spoiled Fordham's escutcheon 31-30 last night at Madison Square Garden, demanded the 12. foot baskets as the only remedy to remove from the hoop game those extra-tall men of the seven-foot type whom he described as "freaks" and "glandular goons." 'Raise the baskets from their original and ante-dated 10 feet to the modernly-required 12," he said, "and those skyscraper plays will be swept off the court because they'll be expected to play the gameInstead of merely standing beneath the baskets as tall tow. ers of defense." "We've got to take the freaks out of college basketball," he con. tinued, "because they are ruining the game that Dr. Naismith invented." He declared that "When Dr. Naismith hung his peach baskets 10 feet from the floor a half. century ago, he didn't mean that this height would prevail down through the ages. He fixed this height merely because it was comfortable in the low-ceilinged YMCA at Springfield, Mass." Conditions have changed since then, Dr, Allendirector of phy. steal education and basketball coach at Kansaspointed out. Dr. Allen snorted that the proposed height change would have bt.en made already were it not for the "stupid backwardness" of the National Colleg1at4 Athletic association and the lethargy of college coaches. "The NCAA," he said. "Is a money-hungry organization that fattens off the bones of college basketball, and college basketball coaches are the most backward, band of mentors In all athletics.! This is a deadly combination which stifles any progress in college basketball, and forces the dia. satisfied college coaches to look toward the high school coaches for any improvement that may be made in the game.

By TOMMY DEVINE CHAMPAIGN. Mills, the youthful and resourceful University of Illinois basketball coach, eyes a long-standing Big Ten record as he prepares his team for the opening of its conference campaign. Illinois won the undisputed Big Ten championship last season and is favored to repeat. If it accomplishes the feat it will be the first team to win two straight undisputed league' Crowns since Wisconsin turned the trick in 1913 and 1914. Mills took the greatest collee tion of sophomores in Big Ten his. tory a season ago and won the championship by a comfortable three-game margin. His stars of 1941-42 now are juniors and with a year's competitive experience figure to be tougher than ever. The class of the Illinois squad was indicated by the team's early season record. It won victories over Detroit, Nebraska, Missouri and Great Lakes. Its lone defeat was at the hands of Camp Grant. Illinois plays Stanford, winner of the National Collegiate championship last season. next Saturday and inaugurates the Big Ten ached. ule Jan. 9 with Michigan as its opponent. From the great squad last season Mills has back his entire starting five and two members of the second team. Rounding out the varsity group are four eagers from last season's reserve team and four good sophomore prospects. The starting Illinois five has Andy Phillip and Ken Menke at the forwards; Art Mathisen at center and Jack Smiley and Gene Vance at the guards. Mathisen is a senior. The other four are Juniors. Those were the players who gained 13 triumphs in 15 confer-(met games last season. The only change Mills has made in the combination is to switch Phillip and Smiley. Philip played a guard last season and led the teams scorers with 159 points in conference competition. To take full advantage of his scoring ability be was moved to forward and has clicked well at the new position. Phillip, who was an all-Big Ten choice last season, has scored 47 points in five games thus far. Smiley Is regarded as the outstanding defensive eager on the squad and Mills believes the shift will work to the advantage of both players. 1 Fight Results (By Associated Press) CHICAGO Johnny LAMM 180, Cleveland, outpointed Tito Taylor, 156.

Pro Bow 110h Ohioan Stars - For Alabama Former Buckeye Fresh Back Hurts Passes. By JACK WOLISTON which provided Georgia with Frank le Sinkvidch, may see another native on bring football fame to a southern university New Year day, when Alabama meets Boston College in the Grange Bowl game. Sophomore Johnny August, a 167-pound halfback from Shady. side, O., spent his freshman year at Ohio State, but said he didn't get much encouragement or financial backing so he went to Alabama. August hasn't seen a lot of action this season, acting as relief mostly for the Tide's great Russ Mosley, but during his limited apperances, be completed 16 out of 26 passes for 247 yards, gained 214 yards on 52 running plays and averaged 39.6 yards on 20 punts. Three of his aerials were good for touchdowns and his running game provided the Tide with another six points. The Buckeye flash is probably the fastest sophomore back in the south, and the Boston College beef trust will have to show plenty of speed to nab him. Just how much action August will see against Boston College remains to be seen, for Mosley, the triple-threat senior back from Blytheville, Ark., and a brother of Herky Mosley, left half on 'Bama's 1938 Rose Bowl team, is a hardy player who could go the full distance. Coach Frank Thomas said however that August will be in there at one time or another, The Tide and Boston College meanwhile continued plugging away at the task of getting into top shape. Both Coach Frank Thomas of Alabama, and Denny Myers, the B. C. mentor, were tapering off their squads with light workouts, holding rough scrimmages to a minimum to avoid Injuries. Myers still expressed concern over the injured shoulder of Mickey Connolly, and it appeared possible that the star fullback might not appear in a starting role. Alabama listed only Tackle Leon Fichman among the ailing, but it was likely the second-string lineman would be able to play New Year day. Schroeder of Glendale, Calif., seedod first, lost by default to Jim Evert of Chicago who was eliminated by Bartlett, 6-2, 6-0. Yu the semi-final doubles matches Bartlett and Jack Tuero, New Orleans, defeated Cushingham and Evert, 6-3, 6-4, and will meet Charles Mattman and Talbert who eliminated Segura and Dick Hain-line, 6-3, 6-4. DI MAGGIOS ABANDON RECONCILIATION HOPE RENO.

Since :iirs. Di Maggio, the former Dorothy Arnold, arrived In Reno several weeks ago to establish residence for a divorce, the Yankee star merely visited her to see his baby son, Joseph Paul Di Maggio III who Is with his mother, the attorneys aid. Johnny Kotz Paces Badgers Leading Scorer Holds Hopes of Wisconsin. MADISO greatest individual scorer in Big Ten basketball history. Johnny Kotz. today held the key to the University of Wisconsin's title chances in the forthcoming conference cage race. Kotz smashed the all-time scoring mark of Purdue's Sewell Young a season ago when he garnered 95 field goals and 52 free throws for an aggregate of 242 points. If Kotz can approach that terrific scoring pace this season the Badgers will be a definite threat for the championship Illinois grabbed last year. Kotz, who stands six-foot-three and weighs 200 pounds, closed the 1941-42 campaign in whirlwind fashion by scoring 31 points against Iowa. In four other conference contests he scored 20 or more points. Only one team succeeded in halting the Badger star and his accurate one-handed push shot last season. That was Purdue which limited him to three points while beating Wisconsin 40 to 31. The current season is Kotz's third. Ile helped the Badgers to the national collegiate championship in his sophomore season and paced Wisconsin last season into a three-way tie for second place In the Big Ten. Wisconsin has been impressive In its early season games. The Badgers have won four and lost one. They beat Marquette twice and Camp Grant and Oklahoma once. The setback was 61 to 59 at the hands of Notre Dame. Wisconsin ends its "warm up" program Thursday night against Harvard and inaugurates the conference program Jan. 9 against Northwestern at Chicago. While Motz is the top man in the Badger cast Coach Bud Foster has four other lettermen to team with him in the starting lineup. At the forward opposite Kotz is Bib Sullivan, a six-foot-one-inch senior. Sullivan was second among the Badger scorers last season with 107 points in conference games. Ray Patterson, who earned his monogram as ,a sophomore last season, is at ceAter. Patterson, at six-foot-two, is ibelow the average size of Big Ten pivotmen but possesses great speed and is a capable under-the-basket performer. Fred Rehm, a senior, and Walt Lautenbach, a junior, are the regular guards. Rehm is a talented rebound artist and Lauterbach has shown indications of becoming an outstanding defensive perform, While Wisconsin's starting quin. tet is powerful, the reserve strength is somewhat of a question mark. The only substitutes who have been impressive in early games are Ed Mills, a sophomore center who is six-foot-seven; Gil Hertz, a junior center, and Bob Krueger, a guard up from last season's Reserve squad. The development of some additional "second line" cagers is Coach Foster's big problem. Tech Outweighed By Texas Team DALLASOflGagey old Bill Alexander admits he isn't very good at figuresespecially when they concern his Georgia Tech football team now in Dallas for a Cotton Bowl engagement with Texas Friday. "My team is lighter than Texas," he said as he watched his boys romp through a spirited session. "But I don't know how much lighter. In tact, I don't keep up with things like weights. After all, you have certain boys and you have to play them and all that matters ai what they do out on the field." For Bills information Texas will outweigh Georgia Tech more than nine pounds to the man. This is for the probable starting teams, with the Longhorns boasting an average of 192 and the Engineers showing 183.

Cal, The A clouds which had gathered over Georgia's Rose Bowl training camp vanished today and Bulldog stock began booming because Frank le Sinkwich promises to be his old self come UCLA and new year day here in the home of football's annual classic. There was plenty of appre. hension In Georgia's camp over whether Sinkwich even would be able to play until be donned his gridiron togs yesterday and showed that his twisted right ankle was going to be all right so far as his passing and run. ning N concerned. Although he still favors the In. jured leg, he looked like the Sink. wich who won almost unanimous All-American honors this season. As Coach Wally Butts and his two assistants sent the Bulldogs through their drill, Frankle was throwing and running like he did until the siege of ankle injuries hit him the day before the team left Athens, Ga. While Georgia got the ' good word on Sinkwich, in the camp of the Bruins, some 30 miles away, the news on Injured Bill Arm. strong, UCLA's first string center, was not so cheering.
