AMERICANS BEAT RANGERS, 1-0, IN OVERTIME BATTLE Boston, Mass., Jan. 10. (JP) The leading Boston Bruins reached the half way mark of the National Hocky league campaign by gaining their iourth straight victory over the Chicago Blackhawks, 3 to 1, tonight in the Boston garden. Among the crowd of 12,000 was Bald Bill Stewart, the Bostonian who recently was ousted ps manager of last year's Stanley cup winners. The Blackhawks will play two more frames on their present tour before returning to the Chicago Stadium Sunday night to meet the New York Rangers. They will battle the Rangers in Madison Square Garden Thursday, nd then travel to Toronto to play the Maple Leafs there on Saturday right. Wieland, Thompson Fight. Tonight's action, lively most of the way, was highlighted by one of little Cooney Wieland's rare fistic outbursts. The veteran center came to blows with Paul Thompson, the Hawks' co-manager, after some sec ond period high sticking. Both drew major penalties. The Hawks scored their second goal In their four starts against Frank Brimsek, the Bruins' sensational goalie, in the opening period, when Baldy Northcott fed Earl Robinson a long pass that was rifled into the Boston net from 30 feet out and sharply to the right. Several times thereafter Northcott got away but Brimsek refused to crack and coolly Vicked out shots fired as close up as three feet. Conacher Ties It. Roy Conacher provided the Bruins with their clincher about five minutes after the Chicago score and a few seconds before the first period ended, Jack Crawford lashed home the deciding goal from more than 40 feet. The Bruins' third tally, made in ths final period, was a flukey one. While passing out of the left corner of the Chicago zone. Woody Dumart hit Goalie Mike Karakas' left skate and the puck was deflected into his cage. U. C. L. A. PLAYERS PROTEST LOSS OF CAMPUS JOBS Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 10. (JP) Edwin TBabe Horrell, new head foot-hall coach of the University of California at Los Angeles, today poured soothing words on a campus tempest the protest against job curtailment from a group of freshman athletes. Horrell said fourteen athletes had Jost jobs at U. C. L. A. recently, but lhat alumni were endeavoring to provide employment for all deserving players. An open letter in the campus newspaper, signed by five freshmen players, charged unfair changes in the treatment of athletes. The writers said they had been promised free Tneals, tuition, fees, books, and $40 a month jobs, and in exchange the university expected every day: Four hours of football practice, four hours of work, four hours in classes, and four hours' study.

Tommy Anderson launched the winning play with a sharp drive which Dave Kerr blocked with his pads. Stewart knocked down the rebound with his glove and rapped the puck into the net. The Rangers protested that Nels actually had flipped it in with his hands but they were overruled. It was the fourth gam?? of the season between the teams and the best the Americans had been able to do previously was a 1 to 1 tie. Lineups: j AMERICANS UJ. BANGERS 10J.

Henry Armstrong successfully defended ' his world's welterweight championship here tonight when he scored a ten round decision over his old rival, Baby Arizmendi. A capacity crowd of 10,400 fans witnessed the match. Armstrong weighed 134 Vi and Arizmendi 136. The champion won all the way, but he never was able to knock the challenger to the canvas. It was the fifth lime that Ihe two have met and in all fifty rounds neither man has been knocked off his feet. The victory gave Armstrong the edge in fights won three to two. Armstrong Bores In. Armstrong was bleeding from the mouth in the third round, but seconds worked over him during the rest period to stop the flow. Arizmendi bled from the nose and mouth from the seventh on. In winning Armstrong employed his regular style of boring in with both gloves swinging. He backed Arizmendi against the ropes, put his head on-Baby's shoulder, and hammered away for ten rounds. Arizmendi took his best punches however, and came back with hard uppercuts and looping rights. Armstrong Is Booed. Armstrong was booed several times for what appeared to be illegal tactics with his head and shoulders, and in the tenth was guilty of butting Arizmendi in the eye. The Mexican charged back furiously, however, and carried the round. Both fighters were cheered at the final bell as they stood in the middle of the ring trading punches. Col. Jacob Ruppert, owner of the New York Yankees, baseball champions of the world, who has been ill for months, suffered a relapse last night and is reported in a critical condition. rAssocialed Press Photo.J TURFMEN SEEK WAY TO STAMP OUT RINGER EVIL Coral Gables, Fla., Jan. 10. CP) The National Association of State Racing Commissioners looked today to national identification bureaus for horses and stable help as potential weapons against running of ringers. Opening its tenth annual convention, the association turned promptly to this evil, one of the most persistent of turf problems. A ringer is a horse whose appearance has been altered so he may be raced under a fake name by unscrupulous turfmen seeking a betting coup. "The past year has shown," said Edwin J. Brown of Seattle, Wash-association president, "that we must tighten the rules and procedure of identifying horses." Commissioner John Sloan of New York suggested a national identification bureau of stable help, and later of horses. He said New York now has a bureau equipped with photographs of licensed employes and it would not be difficult to arrange the same thing on a national scale. The horse identification bureau, he said, would include photographs and an index of markings. - Poffenberger, Detroit Hurler, Sued for Divorce .TJairorstown. Md.. Jan. 10.

TO BEDSIDE OF YANKEE OWNER i' r :- " w- ' '- V Weakened by Long Sickness. New York, Jan. 10. (JP) CoL Jacob Ruppert, multi-millionaire brewer and owner of the world champion New York Yankees, was so near death tonight that he was given the last sacrament of the Catholic church. The 71 year old bachelor, one of the nation's wealthiest men, was reported resting easily but still critically ill. Albert Brennan, who has served as Ruppert's right hand man for the last 27 years without official title, said the colonel hovered between weary consciousness and a semi-coma and went lo sleep just before 11 o'clock. Relatives Are Summoned. " I've been sick a long time, haven't I, Al?" Ruppert said to Brennan just before he went to sleep. "But, you know what? I'm going to get better." Brennan said he could not see how Ruppert could survive many more hours of the illness that developed into complications from an attack of phlebitis inflammation of the veins! suffered last April. He has been confined much of the time since. A brother, George, and other members of the family were summoned to the bedside in the Ruppert town house on upper Fifth avenue. Holdings Approach $100,000,000. Associates generally estimated Ruppert's fortune between 570,000,000 and $100,000,000 and his real estate hold ings in New York second only to those of the Astor family. The Ruppert brewery holdings alone cost $35,000,000 and his baseball properties, including stadia in New York. Newark, and Kansas City, are valued at at least $15,000,000. The 300 acres surrounding his country estate at Garrison, N. Y, cost around $750,000, and his yacht, Yankee, is considered one of the finest privately owned craft in New York harbor. RUTH IN HOSPITAL New York, Jan. 10. SpeciaLl Babe Ruth, baseball's best known figure, tonight was a patient in. French hospital awaiting a cardo-graphic examination which is to be made tomorrow morning under the direction of his personal physician, Dr. Robert H. McConnelL Babe, whose mighty bat changed the- whole character of baseball, entered the hospital today on the recommendation of Dr. McConnell for a general checkup, a routine examination he will undergo regularly in ths future if he follows his physician's advice. Dr. McConnell denied anything serious was wrong with Ruth. "It is just that Babe has reached that stage in life now where he should undergo a complete checkup at regular intervals," the physician said. "To look at him you wouldn't think there is a thing wrong with him, and indications are there isn't. If we find him sound in every respect he will be out of the hospital within a few days." Mrs. Ruth Isn't Worried. Mrs. Claire Ruth likewise minimized the Babe's condition. "Babe isn't a sick man," she saidj "Dr. McConnell just thought he needed a thorough examination and Babe went down to the hospital. He's feeling so good I didn't even, accompany him. He's been active in baseball for so long and has been golfing so much we thought it time to get some medical advice on a set routine to guide him in whatever activities he plans for the future. " Say, if his present plans materialize, Babe will continue his golfing and fishing and add a little broadcasting to keep himself busy. He has his heart set on broadcasting the ball games from one of the local parks this year. If this materializes it will give him all the activity he can handle." The Usual Rumors Follow. The knowledge that Ruth, who will be 45 next month, was a hospital patient set off a succession of rumors to the effect the home run monarch was in poor condition. One report said his heart was bad. A vigorous reducing campaign, in which he has shed 30 pounds in the last six weeks, is said to have affected Ruth's heart. He has been playing innumerable rounds of golf and exercising constantly in a gymnasium. He weighed 239 pounds when admitted to the hospital. Di Maggio's Learned His Lesson He's Just Waitin Hollywood, Cal, Jan. 10. (JP) Joe DiMaggio, outfielder for the world champion New York Yankees, said tonight he was waitin to hear from the club about a 1939 contract. Joe, who demanded $40,000 last year but finally signed after the season opened for $25,000, said he had submitted o demands. A
