America's arch-rival Miiers, Glenn Cunningham and Bill Bon- : thron, are pounding the boards ; again these days. 1 Cunningham has a dual objective. He plans to campaign again this winter over the indoor circuit in i pivparat on for a bid for a pace i on the American Olympic track team. He already has reported to Bill Hargiss, his old coach at the University of Kansas, j On the other hand. Bonthron, has : definitely decided to pass up com-I petition this winter but likewise has j his eye on the Olympics. He's work-i ing out three nights a week at the New York Athletic Cub, Keeping in trim with distance running and a routine of exercises. "Maybe-Reggie McNamara and I have something in common with regard to announcing our retirements." Bonthron smiled. "I thought I might hang up my spikes for all time after last summer but the urge to continue is irresistible." "I haven't lost my appetit for competition by a long shot." said Bounding Bill. "Im darned anxious to meet Cunningham, Gene Venzke and the other fellows again but I'm going to wait until the spring. "I'm in pretty good condition right now and I really think that with regu'.ar workouts throughout the winter I'll be fit for outdoor racing and a fight to gain a place on the American Olympic team. I'd like to make the team. Why not, and who wouldn't?" Bonthron, an accountant by profession, attends night school, where he is taking a course in commercial law and three others in accounting. George Washington University Star Averages Five Yards Ncarlv Every Time With Rail Washington. Dec. 19 t AP.) Alphon e Tuffy Leemans. perhap? the most colorful figures in the history of football In the District ol Columbia, has checked in his moleskins with a record of nearly five yards every time he carried the bat for George Washington University in three son.v Leemans an Allouez, Wis., lad of Belgian ancestry, starred in every game for the Colonials, as halfback or quarterback. Playing on a mediocre team that afforded him little blocking, he was the largest gronnd-gainor and the stand-out performer on the field In a large majority of his contests. He's Good And Tough. Only once was he knocked out or removed for Injuries. That came in his final game, after he had made one touchdown. He came back the next quarter to engineer another. A runner who depended chiefly on shiftiness and a never-say-quit spirit, rather than power or speed, Leemans was at his best in returning punts and kickoffs. In three years he lugged the ball 490 times for 2382 yards or an average' of 4 83 yards per trial. Other complete statistics are not available for his sophomore year, but in his last two seasons, Leemans threw 161 passes and completed 61 of them better than one out of three is a good average. A Pass-Catcher, Too. The Colonials gained 966 " yards on his tosses. Until this season Leemans was the only passer on the Colonial squad. The availability of another tosser this last campaign gave Tuffy a chance to snag "em. Used on the receiving end for the first time late in 1935, Leemans caught five out of seven 1 thrown at him. the first two in j one-handed fashion on the dead i run. He returned 84 punts for a total of 984 yards and an average of 12 yards a trial. He brought 24 kick-offs back 557 yards for an average of 23 yards. Leemans now turns his attention to basketball. where he plays guard, but next year he may be either an assistant coach at GWU or a professional player. He has had several offers from pro teams.
