Y.J and Hil lings R., Cal.; today intro duced bills to declare base ball is a busi ness and sub iect to anti trust laws, The 'action followed the United States Rep. Keating S u p r e m court decision yesterday which subjected professional foot ball to anti-trust laws. House members also talked today of investigating football, base ball, and boxing. The suggestion for football ana noxmg inquiries came from Rep. Keating N. Y., senior Republican member of the house anti-trust subcommittee. Cites Heavy Schedule Celler, cli a i r m a n of the anti-trust subcommittee, said he will be glad to discuss the investigation proposals with Keating. Celler indicated, in an inter view, he has no objection in principle to such an investigation, but he said- the subcommittee has a heavy schedule for this session of congress and might not find time to investigate. Any action on measures introduced by Celler and -Hillings would almost certainly be preceded by a close congressional look at the baseball situation. The Supreme court, ruling yesterday in the football case, in effect, continued baseball's exemption from the anti-trust laws, which the court upheld previously. But the majority opinion suggested that the 44 Orderly way to eliminate any discrimination between football and baseball is by legislation." It's Big Business Celler said there is no doubt in his mind that baseball is in fact big business. He said he expects to conduct ' hearings cn his bill later in the session. Such hearings would Kep. CeUer Kep. Hillings amount to an investigation of at least some aspects of professional baseball. Hillings said, in a statement, his bill would "Break tip the horsehide cartel which has allowed a small group of men to dominate and control America's national pastime." And he said it would place the west coast " In a much better Continued on page 4, col. 4 Received Only 'Allegations,' Keating Admits fC hies so TribBaa Press Berries Washington, Feb. 26 Rep. Keating R., N. Y. tonight told The Chicago Tribune he had no personal knowledge " that gamblers and criminals have infiltrated professional football. He said he had received only allegations about such ac; tivities in football, as well as coxing. "If these reports are not well founded, it should be made clear that these sports are free of such elements," Keating said. " But if they are well founded, every, effort should be made to drive unsavory elements out of foot-Ittil and boxing." P Ay' 1 V T , ( J C i umiamajsjsiii ju ' !

Director Flays New Big Ten Aid Plan BY ROBERT Stu Holcomb, Northwestern athletic director, yesterday said the Big Ten conference's new athletic ai'Vpde has dealt a serious blow to tne Wildcats recruiting program. Holcomb, who termed the plan unfair to Big Ten mem bers unless the National Col- egiate Athletic association could be persuaded to make it nation-wide, added that there are now three classes of STU HOLCOMB . . scores Big Ten's aid plan athletes whom the Wildcats will find it difficult to recruit: 1. Those from poor families. 2. Those from middle class families. - 3. Those from wealthy families. ' Promises Withdrawn He said that persons who had agreed to send their sons to Northwestern next fall have begun telephoning to withdraw such promises, and added that he thought the new limitations on aid, voted only last week, probably had cost the Wildcats at least haif a dozen potential football stars already. The father of a prospective athlete from Oak Park recent ly said he had planned to send his son to Northwestern at a cost of several hundred dol lars, but he now will attend a school where there won't be charges. Northwestern voted in favor of the code on Dec. 10, but reversed itself Feb. 22 and voted against it. The confer ence passed the aid plan, 6 to 4. " We are scheduled to play y j. I f ft.

CROMIE Notre Dame and Oklahoma in 1959 and 1960," Holcomb said unhappily. "Now I don't see how Ara Parseghian can get a squad good enough to meet them." Problem Explained . Holcomb amplified his statements ' concerning the studenf-athletes who now will be tempted to j go elsewhere. He said that those from poor areas, such as Pennsylvania mining towns or Ohio river communities, simply could not get alongw i h o u t campus iobs, which now are barred by the Big Ten unless any money made, is subtracted from the aid given. " Under the old plan they had jobs. The jobs let's face it-may not always have been honest, but now they aren't permitted to make any extra money at all, during the school year, because if you permit outside work you can't control the plan. So they 11 go to places like the Southwest ern conference, the Big Seven, the Southeastern conference, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, or some other independent school where they get full help and can work, too," Holcomb continued. Tells " Our Competition" "Where do you think kids from middle class families will go if their dads have to furnish maybe $600 to $700 extra a year as against a full ride and $15 a month for incidentals, plus a job? " And while the rich father '? able to pay in full, the boy has a little pride in his ability to help himself thru college. A lot of good schools will give aid, regardless of need, if the boys have the academic qualifications. " So that's our competition. I don't know what type of boy we're going to get, except someone- who wants to go to a Big Ten school even if it costs him extra money." Holcomb said also that while some schools in the conference might have n mey enough to hand out the 100 athletic scholarships permitted under the regulations, Northwestern was not among them. " It would cost us about $180,000 a year," he said, " and we just haven't got it to spend."

FILLER TO STAY ON RAGE BOARD 1 . i Stratton Seeks Senate d. k. today Chicago Tribune Press Berricel Springfield, 111., Feb. 26 The state senate will be asked tomorrow m-B-wir! morning to confirm the reappoint ment by Gov. Stratton of William S. Miller of Ottawa1 to a six year term as a member of the Illinois Racing board, William Miller The Tribune learned today. Miller, whose present term expires on July 1, was named to the board by Gov. Stevenson in 1951 to fill the vacancy left when Bernard J. Fallon resigned to become president of the Washington Park Jockey club. Miller was born in Craw-fordsville, Ind., 54 years ago and attended Wabash college from 1919 to 1921 and the University of Notre Dame in 1922. In addition to his racing interests, Miller is a manufacturer and bank official. He was reappointed by Stratton to a four year term when his incomplete term expired in 1953. Miller narrowly missed, becoming president last summer of the National Association of State Racing Commissioners, a post which went to Emmet J. Kelley of New Hampshire. 71 College Basketball .

Ernie's second opponent, Jackie Reeves of Memphis, lasted only a couple of seconds longer. A left to the stomach put him down for the full count.

SEMI-FINALS " Winner bout number one vs. winner boat number two; winner bout number three vs. winner bout number four. By DAVID CONDON IMAGINE THE situation: Dick Donovan, the White Sox right hander, is beating Boston, 2 to 1, with one Red Sox batter already retired in this ninth inning." Donovan has yielded three hits, tossed 110 pitches. Now Ted Williams is up, with Billy Klaus on second. How should Donovan pitch to Williams? . . . The answer from the man qualified to make it, Dick Donovan himself: "How should I pitch to Ted? D--n carefully, because he's still baseball's best hitter; better than Mickey Mantle, better than Stan Musial. Iii my book, only Yogi Berra ,is a greater clutch hitter than Williams. Yogi always gets a piece of the ball. . . .' But about this ninth inning situation: My first awareness is. that, with Klaus on sec onJ, Williams represents the winning run. Then, who will bat after Wil liams? Suppose Jackie Jensen, aright'hander, is to be up next. If I've been having good luck 'with Jensen that day, I have less worry "about Williams; I, can move the ball around more, knowing that even if I walk Ted, 111 be able to pitch to Jensen with a good double play possibility. . . . Naturally, I quickly recall what Ted has' done earlier in the game. Has he hit me? Maybe the Boston run was a homer by Ted; if so, I can't risk a similar pitch. . . Well, finally 1 have to quit thinking and throw something. ... What ; do I finally throw? Whatever pitch is working best for me this day, maybe the slider, maybe the curve. In a tough ; spot, I always try to hit my spot with my best pitch." DONOVAN'S IDEA of a pitcher's pitcher? " I don't want this to sound like I'm taking credit from our boy, Billy Pierce, or from -Cleveland's Herb Score, because they're tops. But the pitcher I'm fascinated by is Early Wynn of Cleveland. ... Fellows like Pierce and Score can overpower batters; their pitches have so much life. But Wynn doesn't have a lot of stuff. He pitches so deliberately, putting a little more on one pitch, taking a little off the next. . . , Wynn works for control, and that's the most important thing in pitching. Remember Ed Lopat, the Junk Man? Lopat had to concentrate on control because he had little stuff on the ball. . . . It's a funny thing how concentration works. Some days your control is perfect, and all your pitches are working like a million dollars. So what happens, you're chased out. Why? . . . Because when you're really going good, you get careless! Because you try to throw a game, not pitch a game". .. . .'On the other hand, there are days when you know you have Viothing; no control, and no stuff. Yet you pitch a pretty good game because you concentrate and are cautious with every pitch." NOW MR. DONOVAN, what about Mickey Mantle? "I don't have-to look at the averages to tell you. that Mickey was better last season than in '55. Because in '55 you could bring a pitch up on Mantle and fan him; last season, when we brought those pitches up, Mickey belted 'em. I've had good luck with Mantle; pitch him lots of ways. I like to give him a slider, inside. But you can't pitch anyone inside all the time, they soon learn to step back. Nor can you pitch aellow low and outside all the time, because they start leaning out and, instead of pulling the ball, they just go with the pitch. ... I used to have fine luck with Billy Martin of the Yankees by pitching him down and away, then he got wise, so I had to go in on him. . . . I'll never forget that Friday against the Yankees in Comiskey park last year. I have everything working; I'm really nicking the outside corner with the low ones. A no-hitter going with one out in the " eighth! Then Martin slaps a double between Larry Doby and Minnie Minoso. . . . Why did Martin break up the no-hitter? Because I made a mistake. ... . Billy was expecting a pitch that was coming up; I wanted to give him the down and away ball. . . . But my pitch wasn't low; for some reason maybe I'd become careless it came up. And Martin whacked. itl " TTplnt ITplnt My wife rets her rood looks from 'her mother. Her mother owns a beauty parlor. Jack Herbert Format Some folks say: "1 think 1 can; My chance, I feel, is good."
