(Special) Corpus Christi's speedy Friars collected their ninth court victory of the season here last night at the expense of the Alleman high cagers as they fought to a 41 to 34 win over their visitors. Try as they might, the Alleman hoopsters could not close the gap to less than four points after their hosts jumped out to a quick five- point lead in the first minutes of play. The Green and White ex perienced a cold night at the hoops, hitting 11 out of 47 attempt ed field goals for a 23 per cent average. They found the going especially tough during the second and third stanzas, converting on 2 of 12 and 1 ol 14 shots respectively. It was largely through the combined efforts of Mike Corken and Frank Coopman that the locals were able to remain in the running at all, as they totaled 17 of the 20 points made by the IMoneers in the first half. Alleman seemed to be pulling one of its old tricks in getting off on the wrong foot, and although the Tioneers trailed by only 15 to 11 at the end of the first canto, they found it impossible to draw themselves any closer. They played the hosts on even terms in the next frame, and with the aid of five free throws, remained four points out at the half with a 24 to 20 deficit. Bill Lennon, the bespectacled forward of the Friars, was the high-point man for the evening with his total of 20 points gained on nine field goals and two charity tosses. C'nrken was aeain high for Alleman with six baskets and six gift tosses for a total of IS markers. In a preliminary event, the Al leman sophomores eked out a 56 to 50 overtime victory over the Corpus Christi sophs. The little Tioneers were sparked by Don George with 19 points.

Olson will make his first visit to this city, since pouring $20,000 into the baseball coffer here, Thursday night for a meeting at the Chamber of Commerce at which Tom Fairweather, president of the Three-I league, and Howard Goetz, secretary, also will be in attendance. Olson will confer with sports writers and radio men at a special luncheon Thursday noon. Davenport was favored with ten Sundays at home, plus two holidays, in the schedule. The Quads open the season April 23 at Evans-ville and wind up the campaign with the same club in a Labor day twin-bill at Muny stadium. Waterloo will come to Muny stadium for a July 4 double-header. On Decoration day the Quads so to Cedar Rapids.

Now that the schedule is definitely set and with season plans due to be settled tomorrow, all that remains is for Perk Purnhage to line up some ball players who'll give Davenport a hustling team. It has been reported that a manager for the Quads may be named at Thursday's session. , Paul Stratliman, Former DHSAcc, To Oppose Bees Hosts Have Won Five of Seven Games So Far PROBABLE LINEUPS AMBROSE PARSONS ST Morris (6-2) l.awlu (S-.1) Donnelly (6-4) .

The Saints, fresh from their 60 to 44 win over highly touted Dubuque U. Monday night, will go into the ball game with a height advantage amounting to two inches per man. The Blue and White average 6' 2V2". while the hosts will average just a little over the six-foot mark. Tarsons is coached by O. B. Nelson, a pre-war great at the Fairfield college, who handled the cage chores at Grinnell college last season. So far this winter the Kelly Greens have won five out of seven. In the Central invitational tournament held at Pella during the Christmas vacation, Parsons wound up in third place in the four-team meet. They lost their first game to Simpson, 77 to 71, hut bounced back to throttle Central, 84 to 55. The small, speedy Green and White team is paced by a high scoring veteran, Bud Baccus. This Metropolis, 111., guard averaged 14.4 points per game last beason in leading the Parsons team to a 9-9 season's record. He was called one of the slickest ball players in the conference last year. Parsons won seven out of 12 loop battles in the 1948-49 season. Ten experienced lettermen give Baccus plenty of help and a former Davenport high star, Paul Strathman, is called the floor general. Strathman sparked the Blue Devils to their state championship drive In 1947. The ex-Imp will team with the high-flying Baccus in the barkrourt. At the forward spots for Pat- sons are Dick Geith, star of Manning's state champs in 1948, and veteran Ed Ahrens. Merlin Roster-mundt, another member of that surprising Manning team of 1948, Ivan Helton, pint-sized vet, and Claude Alliston are relief men up front. Bob Lindsay, 6' 2" senior, is the center choice of Nelson. Bill Jerome, Fhil Delpierre and Dick Casady are other experienced men on the Green s roster.

Snead and Hogan Meet in Playoff Sam Birdies 18th to Tie in Los Angeles Open LOS ANGELES. (AP) Ben Hogan, game but tired in his amazing golf comeback, tees off today against Sam Snead, who admits he's sharp, in the playoff for the top prize of the $15,000 Los Angeles Open. Win or lose, Hogan will have engineered one of the great comebacks in golf history. Hogan had his finest triumph in his grasp for 44 minutes yesterday. He posted 280, four under par, and went in to shower, con fident that his first tournament bid since his auto accident was a success. Hogan was drying off when the first hint came. By then Snead had two holes to play and had to have two birdies. But birdie he did, with a ten-foot putt. Eighteen is one of the toughest holes on Riviera's trapped and hilly course. It's a slight dog-leg of 455 yards, but par four. Snead wound up 15 feet from the pin on his second shot. A gallery of 10,500 was hushed as he carefully sized up the shot, then played the roll perfectly and hit the cup dead amidships for a birdie three to tie Hogan's 280. Ex-Rock Island Hurler to Pilot Omaha Ball Club OMAHA. (AP) Al Hollings-worth, a "ten-year" major leaguer, was announced today as the new manager of the Omaha Cardinals, members of the Class A Western league. He formerly pitched for Rock Island in the old Mississippi Valley league. He succeeds Cedric Durst, who piloted the St. Louis Cardinal farm club last season. Omaha was in fifth place. Hollingsworth, 39, has been manager of the Allentown, Pa., club in the Class B Interstate league for the last two seasons. Allentown took the pennant in 1949. The new Cardinal manager began his professional baseball career as a pitcher with Waynesboro of the Blue Ridge league in 1928. He reached the major leagues in 1938, then was traded to Newark in 1939, The same year Brooklyn bought his contract, and after two years in triple A ball, he went to the St. Louis Browns for a five-year period during which he All-America Preps Announced Friday Release of the All-America high school football team, announced as for today, will not he made until Friday, The team is picked by the Wigwam Wisemen of Oklahoma City. reached the 1944 world series.

In the second game, the Shamrocks topped the Queens 41 to 33. High point makers of the evening were Pat Jansenns, Malcolm's forward, in the first game with Joe Collier of Rock Island, who is adding to his already-won football laurels with a brilliant scoring display on the basketball court, zoomed past the double-century mark in total points for the campaign last week. And the season is scarcely half over. . In 12 games, Collier has amassed 205 points, 46 more than the runnerup. Bob Hart of East Moline. That gives Collier an average of 17.08 points per contest. Mike Corken of Alleman is second in average with 16.67. Collier, however, is threatened by a new contender, his own teammate, Dick Petersen, who has scored 153 points so far. Jack Minor of East Moline and Ronnie Hicks of Moline are the recent newcomers in the 100-Point club. Minor has hit for 108, and Hicks for 105. Rob LeBuhrt is Davenport's chief scorer with 92 points, followed by Ken Buckles with 86. Dick Glenn tops St. Ambrose academy with 70.
