BASKETBALL IS LEADING SPORT IN KANSAS NOW Estimates Show Football Fat Behind in Number Of Games Played By Charles A. Gmmich (Associated Press Sports Writer.) Basketball was voted the leading Kansas sport last season In a poll conducted by Paul R. Lawrence of the Newton Kansan-Kepiibllcan, and now E. A. Thomas, executive secretary oi the state high school athletic association, offers statistics to show the chief . indoor winter sport outranks football. "Thomas estimates there are 650 senior or 4-year high schools playing basketball In Kansas and asserts that a conservative estimate ^•ould place each team's average schedule at not less than 13 games. Multiplying 650 by 13 ^d 'dividing the result by two, because the teams play each other except for; a few Interstatje engagements, we . find that the; high schools participate in at least 4225 games annually In regular season play, exclusive of tournaments. Coimty and invitation tournaments and the state elimination series leading up to, the. two state Interscholastlc cliamplonshlp tournaments account for about 1,000 additional games. Thomas goes on. insisting that all estimates are extremely conservative. ' lOLA.

(AP) The pyre'murder of an aubum- halred woman whose body was found aflame nckr Spook Rock baffled authorities today. Wisps of smoke curling upward in the snow-covered peach and apple country attracted Alonzo Osborn as he walked along a road. Behind a boulder he found the burning bodv, sprnwled on its face. The woman was about 5 feet, 1 Inch tall, about 35 years old, and weighed about 115 pounds. A purse nearby held $16.50. A small ad m the Classified columns often puts over n bis deal. Those figures represent only the organized high school contests: No estimate of Y. M. C. A., church league and Independent games Is available, but Thomas says that thr; Tbpeka Y. M. C. A. alone has about 15 games a weekt Seventeen colleges and a dozen junior colleges participate in basketball, with schedules running from 12 to 20 srames a season and then there are the elementary schools. Junion Reed of the Parsons Sun believes the class of basketball played by the Kansas junior colleges doesn't suffer by comparison with that of the Kansas conference. Reed points out that KanS&.i City. Kas., junior college beat Baker university, 42 to 16, and lost to ElDo- rado junior college, 16 to 52. For those who figure that v&y ElDo- rado, which is not the leader In the Juco race, would be 62: points better than Baker, which has split two games in the Kansas conference.

(AP)—Ford Motor company manufacturing and assembly plants all over the country were Idle today because of labor troubles In Detroit plants supplying the Ford company with automobile bodies, and estimates of the number of men affected ran as high as 150,000. Ford company officials In announcing, the shut-down said it was due to the closing of two plants of the Brlggs Manufacturing Co., here where a number of employes walked out early this week. They said they could not continue work on new models not yef announced without bodies furnished by the Briggs company. The announcement was followed by a state- Iment.from Clarence W. Avery, pres- 'idcnt of the Murray Corporation of America, also manufacturers of automobile bodies that the Ford closing would force his company to lay off from 1,200 to 2,000 men who had been turning out Ford bodies; The Briggs company supplies bodies for several motor companies besides Ford and some of those companies said their stock of bodies would be exha:usted by Monday. Employes of the Briggs company said their protest was over reductions in their pay made for "dead time" caused by machinery breakdowns or by moving from one part of the plant to another. Company officials said the minimum wage for nonproductive workers is 25' cents an hour, with the expert, tradesmen drawing from 60 cents to $1 an hour. ^ : Between 40.000 and 50,000 men have been employed in the Ford plant here, most of them three days a week. Estimates of the number employed In assembly plants ranged from 60.000 to 100.000. The Briggs' company has employed about 6,000 men.
