THURSDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 9. 19S3. lOLA, KANSAS MUCHHINCESON RESULT m TILT IN FIELD HOUSE Javhawkers May Set AU- Time Record in Big Six If They Win Then By Charles A. Onunich (Asscp-iatci Fre<:s Sports Wriwr.) The all-time Big , Six basketball leadership based on games won and lost since the present membership •withdrew from the old Missouri Valley circuit will pass to Phog Allen's Kansas Jayhawkers Saturday night if they defeat Missouri at Columbia—something, the Kansans haven't been able t/o do since lfl27. At the stnrt of the present campaign Missouri had won 28 games and lost 14 in the four seasons since the. inception of the new and compact league, aghlnst Kansas's record of 23 won and 17 lost, which put tl'.e Jayhawks in second place de- .splte the fact they won the championships of 1931 and 1932. With the current race barely half finished, Ihe all-time leaders are setarated by a fraction: Here's the v.ay the Big Sis teams stack up for foiir full seasons and the 1933 games played up to now: W. L. Pet. Missouri 28 17 .622 Kansas 28 18 .609 Oklahoma 23 22 .511 Nebraska ....21 24 .467 Iowa Stale 18-27 .400 Kansas State 18 28 .391 WHADDATA MEAN- WEAKER SEX? - Doctor A-Uen respects Missouri's reputation for winning games on the court in Brewer field house at Columbia. The Tigers have established themselves as "homers" again this year by losing their last four games, to Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, and Creighton, on the road, after having defeated their first two conference opponents, Nebraska and Iowa State, in Columbia. Tlie setting of the battle Saturday night may again trip UP the Jayhawkers. It is the spacious stone field house named for the Missouri ^ athletic director, and it h&s been the i scone of the Big Six Indoor track \ and field carnival, for which it Is an ideal spot since it was dedicated Jni 1930. Visiting basketball teams have found it a nemesis. Miss Harriet' Caperton believes that, with c\erything topsy-turvy in times like these, a girl should support her dancing partner — at least until he gets on his feet again. So that's what she's doing here, with Vernon Biddle, other half of the adagii^ team, hand- standing on her back as they trained on the beach at Miami, Pla. . WICIIITAN COWICTED TODAY The court Is raised from the earth .some 27 inches. Tlie hardwood floor extends only eight feet beyond the boundaries of the court. Tennis nets have been strung around the floor; toj.prevent the ball froin ;hopping ovp'r into the typewriters, telegraph instruments and correspondents who hdok their chins over the east edge ofj the'floor, and out on the earth ! oh the other sides. Doctor Allen i oskcd Coach George Edwards of Mis- | soiirl to remove the nets; contending they were hazardous and compelled racing players to go in for; hi(?h Jumping rather than become entangled, Edwards compiled. Jurj Find.s He Published Paper De• voted Largely to Scandal. kansas's playing arena has its hazards, too. Spectators seated In the front rows of the auditorium , halve beeij bowled over and a few | players, have smashed up t^alrs In i their wild scrambles, for possession of!an elusive leather. For aggressive play and gerierai ability. Doctor Allen's' youngsters rate an edge over 'Missouri's more experienced men, but the field house isn't to the Jayhawks' liking and, after all, it's a Miaourl-Kansjas game. The two coaches are singularly opposed as td style. Kansas whipped tl^e Tigers at lawrence, 35-27. on January 19, just as thoroughly as the Jayhawks beat the Tigers there last season and thereby won the championship after losing that farcial stalling contest ja^ Columbia. Wichita. Feb. 9. (AP)—William Leslie. 34-year-old former boilermaker of Arkansas City, was convicted by a jury in district court here today of "publishing a nets- paper largely devoted to scandal."

Ml WILLIAM BRAUGHER ] Some Tough Jobs A SIDE from having no job at all the next worst thing is havr ing a tough one. And, looking around iu the field of sports, it appears that plenty of people arc not only willing but anxious to take on. hard assignments.

Young Corbett being one of those aggravating southpaws. . . . Fields, whos-; eyes are reported to be in bad condition, will have to fight this fellow from gong to gong in order to win ... he just can't box the nian ... tip to Jackie,: one Kood way to beat a left-hander is by using stiff, short, right-hand counter punches . . . they must be fast to overcome those right-hand jabs and hooks . . . Mr. Fields' target should be Mr. Corbett's stomach. R O G E R ' PECKIXPAUGH— Peck's job is to put the Indians in the running for the . American League pennant all the way . . .' otherwise he will be seeking em- plryment elsewhere next year.

MERCHANDISING OUT Legislature Arain Kills Measure to Penult VtlUty Sales; Topeka, Feb. 9 (AP)—Once again the Kansas legislature has voted against permitting public utility companies to sell merchandise. After extended debate the senate late yesterday killed a measure which would have allowed utility concerns to sell appliances If they kept separate accounts of the merchandise transactions. Victims of the axe along with the Bradney merchandising bill were -the McCue building and loan bill and the Baird bill to make county treasurers custodians of rural school funds, both of which were killed by the house after lengthy debate. The Bradney bin was In the form of an amendment to the present statute, enacted two years ago, which prohibits public utility companies from selling merchandise. Branded by opponents as a measure which would give utility companies "monopolistic powers and control" of the appliance business and "kill off the independent merchant." the measure was killed on motion of Senator Rust (D) of Parsons. Senator Bradney (R) of Columbus defended his bill by stating that utility customers and appliance, users were entitled to better repair service ttian they generally received, he contended, from merchants. There was no record vote on the measure. The McCue bill was assailed as "class legislation" for the benefit of building and loan associations and to the detriment of shareholders.

While these three measures were sent to tile legislative graveyard, another was revived in the senate when the May bill to permit manufacture of Industrial alcohol was sent back to the federal and state affairs committee on motion of Senator Bender (R) of Holton.
