The contumelious practice of booing, hissing and Bronx cheering at basketball games will be on the pan at the mid-April meetings of the National Basketball Coaches' association and the joint rules committee in New York. Dr. F. C. Allen, who was the bellwether in the movement for the rules changes brought into being last year, says so and he is personally going to lead a drive against the offensive demonstrations which he believes are making inroads from the lower forms of professional sports of the hippodrome character. lOLA, KANSAS Reporter Tells Of Miami Scene Phog Allen isn't the kind of fellow who goes before the rule makers unprepared.'so he has plotted out a campaign against rowdyism and no doubt he will refer to It when he proposes that the booers and the hissers be branded as such or be ejected from the collegiate basketball courts immediately upon their identification as the sources of the moiithy sounds. The. Jaj'hawk lettermen will be: rounded up by the Kansas athletic department and asked to police the crowd ab the Kansas-Iowa State game in Lawrencte Saturday night and to remind vociferous ones that it isn't sportsmanUke to razz! either the hard-working referee or the visiting team. The coaches—Allen and his former pupil at the Warrensburg teachers iCoUege, Louis B. Menze, whom they used to call "Boob" because he is so Clever—will denaon- strate .legal and illegal play before the game and a sports authority will bespeak the cooperation of the crowd. ; Doctor Allen believes it's up to the individual institutions to protect the visiting team and the officials from the epithets of the home fans. If he had his'way about it, the noisy spectators, except^ those whose vocal efforts are confined to Rock Chalk" and polite expressions of enthusiasm or dismay, would be singled out by ushers, refunded their admission and be asked to leave the premises forthwith. By Bex Saffer. (AssociateH Pre« Staff Writer:) Miami, Fla., Feb. 16. (AP)—I thought it was all a part of the celebration, with some fool firing blank cartridges, when a pistol sounded sharply behind my ear last night as I followed President-elect Roosevelt. Only when Mayor Cermak of Chicago slumped down before me did I realize that my shoulder was being used by an assassin to steady his aim for an attack upon the next president of the ^United States. About the same time I got wise to this, the tumult broke. Men and; women screamed and shoutfed. •'Kill him! StoJD him!. Don't let him hit Mr. Roosevelt!" were among the cries I remember. Turning about I saw two men bearing down on a { little. swarth.v,'stocklly built man. They certainly manhandled him. j didn't realize for the moment that anyone else but my old friend Tony Cermak had been hit. I was near Mr. Roosevelt's car and. of course, my first thought was of hlni. Getting near I heard him say "Tell them I am all right." I knew he had hot been hit. Then it was a question of getting to the telephone. I did and I got called plenty of names for hanging on to It. • There was blood oh the street as I jumped past the scene of carnage ROADS ALIVE WITH MEN Japanese Preparing Day and Night For Drive on Jehol Expected Within Fortnight for the phone. It was the blood of Tony.Cermak and Mrs. Gill. Tlie whole thing happened so quickly I don't think any of us realized for a moment what was occurring. Mr. Roosevelt was among the calmest there. He had a deep expression of agony on his face. It was hot fear for hlniself. It • was utter sorrow at the unfortunate fate of his friends. As near as I could see, the little man. Oulseppe Zangara. was standing on a bench about 25 feet away from the! Roosevelt car. * He was almost "Stripped of clothing when the police pulled him away and shackled him to a car. ; Cermak was standing with W. W. Wood of Miami, near the Roosevelt car when the shoothig took place. Mukden, Manchuria, Feb. 16. (AP) Roads southward and- westward from this most Important Manchur- lan I city are alive day and night with Japanese and Manchukuo troops moving steadily toward positions, whence-they will "Jump off." probably within two weeks, for the long-waited invasion of Jehol province. The drive along the 200^mile front is ej.pected to bring the biggest Sino-Japanesc clash since fighthig began in September 1931 with the capture of this city by the Japanese. The combined Japanese-Manchu- kuo force is expected to total 50,000, half of them tested Japanese veterans. They will oppose about 150,000 loosely organized Chinese. Realizing the campaign to wjest this additional territory from Chinese control may be difficult, the command has diverted,its ablest officers from otlier. parts oi Manchuria to lead the drive. The modern mechanical branchej of Japan's powerful war machine, airplanes, tanks, and armored motor cars are being fully mobilized. Tlie Japanese assert that the wife of the Chinese governor of Jehol. Gen. Tang Yu-Lin, is being held as a hostage in Peiping'to make him offer fierce resistance to their I troops. \They accuse Marshal Chang Hsiao-Liang, the North China war lord.' of holding Tangs wife at hir, headquarters in the ancient .Manchu Imperial capital, wliich is about 100 miles south of Tang's capital at Jehol city. Tang has served as governor of Jehol under Marshal Chang, both .before and since the latter ^^'as driven out of Manchuria by the Japanese. (Cliinese reports saidi his allegiance to Chang has been unmoved by Japanese ovcr- tia-es.> The Japanese confidently predict the Jehol campaign will last less than one month after it is definitely under way. Independent military authorities, however, predicted a much longer conflict unless the Ghi- ijese are stampeded by tlie first heavy shocks. Japan declares she is not at i^-ar with China and describes the Jehoi drive as merely a "policing" operation. Its aim Is to.bring Jehol under the control of :the Japanese- maintained government of Manchu­ kuo. : MRS. ROOSEVELT f CARRIES ON Lines of Fatigue on Face Only Signs of Strain She Has Seen.
