Akers was Injured when tackled yesterday, in the Chicks' last prac- icc session of the year. The loss of Akers poses a big problem for Coach Rnss Mo.sley. Freddie has played practically every minute of every ball game this season and Mosley faces the big of rigging _up a replacement for him. The Chicks have only one other left halfback, sophomore James Prlvett, but, it is doubtful that he will draw the starting assignment because he is sadly lacking in sufficient Rame experience. Coach Mosley could not be reached for comment hile this morning. Finul Work Tonight Akers' Injury came Just a few hours before the Chicks broke their training camp for the last time this year. They close their season tomorrow night In• the game which Is scheduled for Newport. They are slated to wind up their pre-game drills with a light workout under the lights tonight. Obviously trying to avoid uuy llth hour Injuries, Coach Moslcy's Trlcb took things relatively easy nil this week. They worked primarily on blocking and tackling V t shlcti away from the reul heavy work which the Chicks had witnessed most of the season. Akers 1 Injury leaves the Chicks minus two starters for tomorrow night's game. Danny Cobb, who in- h'ls foot In the East High three weeks tigo, reported for practice this week but only hobbled around the sidelines and definitely will not see service tomorrow night. Boxing Goes on Trial Today Before U. S. Supreme Court By IIKItB ALTSCIIUU. WASHINGTON (AP) — The government sets out today to try to convince the Supreme '{ Court that two major boxing clubs and two big names in fight promotion are involved ill an illegal conspiracy to violate the antimonopoly laws. ' The court has allotted two hours for arguments by both sides. What the government is seeking is a Supreme Court ruling against the International Boxing Clubs of New York and Illinois, Madison Square Garden, Jes. D. Norris, head of the New York and Chicago boxing clubs, and Arthur M. Wirtz, who shares with Norris sole ownership of the Chicago stadium and its subsidiaries. ^ ^ Osceola Eyes Lepanto After Wilson Victory RESERVE HALFBACK — One of the most promising of the Chicks' ncwcoiiicrs this year is Wsiync Hunnicutt, a reserve halfback who has looked good in practice sessions this year. Hunnicutt got in some (jamc action tills fall but lack of experience is his big- liability.

The "settled matter" cited in this case is the relationship of professional baseball to the nation's antitrust laws. Last November, the Supreme Court ruled that baseball does not come under the antitrust laws. Like Baseball Attorneys for the boxing interests have told the court in a brief: 'Our basic argument is that since professional boxing is and always has been indistinguishable from professional baseball, in all material a.spects of the manner in which it is conducted, the decisions relating to professional baseball must be treated as governing professional boxing." The government, which is appealing an ruling in i\ U. S. district court in New York, argued that baseball and boxing are "markedly different." TV Is Crux The crux ol the argument involves television. The government maintains at least 25 per cent of boxing income — and in some cases more than 50 per cent —comes from rights to put on nationwide television shows. This, the justice department argues, puts boxing squarely in interstate commerce. No more so than baseball, the boxing laywcrs reply. They argue that baseball .collects 10 times as much from TV and radio as does boxing. OSCEOLA — U was a long time coming but the wait turned out to be a sweet one for the Osceola Seminoles last Friday night when they turned the tide against the Wilson Bulldogs 21-0. With this 21-0 win tucked under cer. This list of players have seen their belts it could be the Seminoles Will be placed in the favorite's seat for the first time this season when they tangle with Lepanto on the la tier's home field Friday night. But it is for sure Coach Bill Bcall's Seminole outfit will lake nothing for granted as they have had their share of unfortunate breaks throughout the season, and they'll he playing this game without any looking forward to their final two games. With tneir rugged 19n4 schedule they h.xve not been able to look past any ot their opponents for future games and this game will be no exception. The Seminoles probably will stick with their same lineup which won the Wilson game. That would be: Dewey Gentry, left end: Bernie Weiss, left tackle; Paul Goble, left kick after the second Ute touchdown—the point, that made the difference in the game. Passed for 63 yards in 15 attempts; ran for 46 yards in 13 rushes and led all the defensive players with 15 tackles. Intercepted a Utah desperation pass on his own 15-yard line as the final gun sounded. This storybook performance over shadowed the statistically stronger feats of such players as Auburn's ,Ioe ChlUU-css; George Walker, the guard; Fleming Illey Ellis, center; Otto •ight guard; Allan Craig, right tackle; Sharon Faulkner, right end; Wade Rodgers, quarterback: Jake Morse, right halfback; Lloyd Moore, left halfback; and Jerry Spencer or Nelson Hopkins, fullback. V'hen the Indians go on the defensive Jackie Crosthwait, Jimmie Robbins, Dick Lucas, Larry Hulsey, Leroy Meadows and S. E. Stovnll replace Gentry, Weiss, Kills, Fleming, Faulkner and Spen- 20-year-old Arkansas tailback; Baylor quarterback Billy Hooper; Army's speedy Tommy Bell; and Navy's George Welsh, who also received strong support from the sports writers and broadcasters in the weekly Associated Press poll. of their active on the defensive this year and all have played an outstanding brand of football. Osceola's Split T offensive is led by quarterback Wade Rodgers, a 1953 All-District performer, and who is making a bid for a place on the All-State this year. The 165 pounder made sixty-five points this year .and most of them from outside the twenty yard stripe. Another outstanding runner for the Tribe is Jake Morse, who has picked up valuable yardage all year long for the Seminoles from his right halfback slot. Up front where the action hai been rugged all season Paul Goble, senior left guard, leads a line composed of three seniors, two juniors and two sophomores. Weiss, junior left tackle and Gentry, junior right end have been a potent part of the Osceola offensive this year. When the opponents have the ball Lucas, Craig, Robbins and Meadows have been a thorn in the side of all the. opponent's running attack, especially since the third game of the campaign. One of the amazing segments of the Osceola offensive line Is the two sophomores which hold down the center and right guard slots. Ellis weighs in at 120 and- Fleming 131. But size here has not proven out for these two lads have not given ground to anyone which can be attested by the fact the operation of their Split T quarterback has not been hampered in getting his handoffs down the line of scrimmage. Kickoff time is set for 8:00 FrI- day night. TAYLOR For ceiii-riilions. whiskey connoisseurs have loved llio deep mellow flavor and chararier of OLD TAYLOR 100 proof bottled in bond bourbon.
