(AP)—Dn Otto Peltzer, famous German middle distance runner made ready to leave here for CHiicago today, still in the dar(c as to whether or not he v.ould be allowed to run. in this country. The running doctor was declared to be at a loss to nnder- stand why he had not received permission to enter a few meets while in tl»e United States. Yesterday he telegraphed an entry for the half mile race at the. .Mlllrose Athletic Ai^sociatlon. track and field carnival in Aladison Square Garden, February 2, advising tho officials that his entry w-as coudl.tional upon sanction from the A. A. U. Ilu also has entered a meet in Chicago February 10 nnder the sam«'> conditions as In -N'ew York. •VNTille, waiting word from ibe .\. A.

The did mark of 1 minute and :">."..9 seconds by Percy NIersbach, former University of Southern California runner, was bettered by balf a second. Two' pace markers foun<l that tarfv too strenuous for them end dropped out after a single turn rr<jund the oval, Peltzer flnlsh- inpj tbe day's work alone. While the time did not approach Peltzer's record of 1 minute 51.6 seconds, sports writers who watched the run declared the time good in viei*- 01 the lack of competition.

The standings at present seem to indicate that two teams usually prett>- strong; are again out to fight junior colleges for a championship, w^lth Arkansas City and Parsons In the undefeated column. Kansas City is still in the running, while lola and .Ft. Scott entered the loss column, each one receiving a defeat. .Kansas City is in a position at present to hold its clear record since it ts playing on Us own court until the second week In February when it is likely to take a tumble on the first of its road trips. There is no danger of it being knocked out this week as it is not taking on any conference op- iwnents. Parsons has a stronger team than usual from present reports while the Arkilnsas City team is credited with a powerful defense having let only one Ft. Scott forward score a field goal during the entire game last Friday evening. Arkansas City Is not likely to meet a great deal of opposition in its invasion o< El Dorado where it will meet a badly weakened team from tbe one that frightened alljKniporia opponents by-its startling playing j lOl^i. game of the season on their own court where a ' great deal of strength is usually shown.

(AP)—The lic.-ivyweight plot aimed at Gene Tunni'v's crown thickened todays witli a po.ssib4Iity of three champions at large in the event the present title-holder is not signed for the defense of his treasure by early summer. Matching Jack Sharkey's chaV lenge with the New York state athletic commission. Jack Delaney has i.ssued a like defi at Tunney thru the National boxing association which has a membership in 26 states. I Delaney's challenge, however, ab- cording to his manager. Joe Jacobs- will be effective only on condition that- Delaney knocks out Tom Heeney during their 15-round bout at .Madison Square Garden March first. The New York state athletic commission requires champions to fight at least once every six months and Tunney's period of idleness closes in March. ' .-\s for the National' boxing com­ mission'this is the first tinie it has steppe(! into the affairs of the liea- vyv.-pights. The body has accepted Delaney's challenge. Jacobs said Jacobs said he woiild confer with -1 Tom Donahue, president of the N. i.

Delaney's chajUengc with the N. B. A. is regarded; as favorable to the interests of Promoter Tyx Rickard. Previously Sharkey's challenge with the New York solons would .compel Rickard to respect the rulings of the Em-, pire stale body. Now-, if Rickard should find it to his advantage to shift his heav>-w-eiglit stage to another state, he could call on De­ lane.v.
