Chicago jt) "Anything can happen this Saturday," Coach El-pr Bumham of Purdue told his football squad yesterday, and he hit the nail on the head like a $2-an hour carpenter. For when the Boilermakers take tm Marquette Saturday night at Milwaukee the Hilltopper captain will be Bill Combs, former Purdue tar end and who was voted the mo?t valuable man on the 1941 Boilermaker team. Coach Tom Stidham of Marquette, with s fine senM of the dramatic, has named Combs to lead the Milwaukeeans against liis former mates.

Chicago (INS) With the rather ominous words that It was being done "because there was a question of public policy" Involved, the war manpower commission announced today that It was starting an lm mediate investigation of the Chicago (pro) Bears football team. The WMC said It was seeking to determine whether there was any irregularity In the transfer of players from essential-Industry jobs to a season of play on the gridiron. The inquiry will be set in motion before nightfall by the office of Regional Director, William H. Spen cer, with the promise that both the proceedings and the Bears' position in the matter will be made fully available to the public. More than that, the possibility was not too remote that, once un der way, the probe might extend It self not only to other clubs in the National Football league but to pro fessional sports In general. Includ ing baseball and hockey. Would Not Commit Itnelf. The local WMO headquarters would not commit Itself as to wheth er athletes whose "papers" were not in order, faced automatic placement in 1-A. But a spokesman for the lo cal office did have this interesting comment on the point: "The selective service boards have the right to re-classify anyone from IS to 38 years old who have been deferred because of their em ployment In essential Industry." The situation was brought to a focus through a publicity release from the Bears' office, which named the following players as having left war Industry jobs In order to play professional football this fall: Clyde "Bulldog" Turner, regular center for some seasons; Harry Clark and Dante Magnani, backs; Hampton Pool, an end, and Al Hop towlt, a tackle. The Bear release ingenuously added that "most of the other players were employed In various capacities in defense plants, Consequently, said the WMC spokes man, the entire Bear personnel would be required to give an ac counting. Certificates of Availability. But It was largely what he left unsaid that seemed to count. As, for example, the announced pur pose of the investigation was to de termine whether the athletes In volved had the required "certificates of availability" from defense plant employers. Whereas, the Implied result of failure to produce such papers was the departure from . the sports field of the men affected. either back to essential industry or into the army. Moreover, there was a covert threat of this condition spreading MONDAY EVE., SEPT. 27 THE MAN WHOWROTf IPC SUNBS IUU IVIt " ' Compcwar of THf STUDENT r ft iMci tmi Msttrr sons 50 CONCERT50 UTISTS ORCHESTRA Ainsu MAIL ORDERS NOW! raicrs MAIN FTOOR f . l.4 ft.M BALCONY 1st Rartim S.S4 Martina St.Afl Ta Sr Mtloa 11.1 S Ina.

Including big league baseball and hockey That was to be found in this sug gestive statement from WMC le gional headquarters: "The Bear situation will lead to a better understanding of the manpower problem In relation to athletics. Certificates of availability are required of any sports activity. "The Investigation of the Bears followed many inquiries that have been made of us since the club's publicity release appeared. Our ac tion thus becomes a matter of pub lic morale." The number of men in baseball and professional football who left essential Jobs to engage in these non-essential sports is a matter of surmise, but it is certain that nelth er the total nor their athletic abil ity Is Inconsequential. This being so, It is Interesting to learn that the local WMC office contemplates finding out just who Is the regular employer and who is what Is termed the "vacation" employer. Very Suggestive. The official WMC statement of position in this connection is a masterpiece of suggestlveness, as follows: "Should the local inquiry, for instance, show that the regular em ployer is the Chicago Bears and that, after doing essential work for certain months, the athlete had re turned to the .Bears as his regular employers, . the commission will make no dlcision until the invest! gation is complete." Parenthetically, the amount of earned Income in each case should determine which Job is regular and which is part-time or "vacation." Ralph Brizzolara, secretary and general manager of the Bears, said last night that, to the best of his knowledge, all WMC regulations had TOli A Y & Fill DA Y 3 Co- c as "IN Lots Wolf Ann SAVAGE 'ACTION and THRILLS GALORE!
