HislOliJ S IlXCd-tlO n'he- cames weie '72, 215. 212, 182.1 Group Seeks BY WILLIAM FAY Jim Crowley, the fellow who resigned as commissioner of the All-America Football conference tat $25,000 a year) to become part own er and coach of the Rockets, moved Chicago office at 100 N. esterday. "We're going to be here a long lime," Jim declared. "I realize that Chicago is the stronghold of the National Football league. The Bears and Cardinals are tough competition, but the Rockets will hold their own on the field and at the box-office." Crowley then revealed that next fall the Rockels will play Sunday afternoon football in direct competition for patronage with the Bears and Cardinals. It was the policy of the Rockets last season, under their former owner, John Keeshin, to play Friday night games in Soldiers' field. To Vie for Patronage "The schedule is not yet set," Crowley said. " Of course, we hope to play two or three September games, taking advantage of the excellent weather and the lack of competition the Bears and Cardinals can not open until early October because their parks will be used for baseball. However, three or four of our games will be played on Sunday afternoons when National league teams will be playing either in Comiskcy park or Wrigley field." Crowley also safd the Rockets, who finished last in the western division of the All-America, were working on deals which would make the team a championship contender. "We have a sound nucleus and you couldn't ask for better backs than Elroy llirsch and Hunchy lfoern-schemeyer. We will look for back field strength, but primarily we ate seeking reinforcements for the line." Will Not Ak for Help It was defensive rather than offensive trouble which plagued the Rockets last year plus Keeshin's application of the free substitution rule to the coaching staff. It is doubtful whether the line will con-tinue to be a problem under Crowley, who developed " The Seven Blocks of Granite," one of the greatest forward walls in football history, during his highly successful head coaching days at Fordham. Crowley emphasized that the Rockets did not intend to "ask for help" from other teams in the All-America. The conference recently set up a system whereby weaker teams could draft players from the stronger 1916 clubs. I " We'll do all right," Jim declared.

AGGIES, LOYOLA REACH TOURNEY FINAL Bowling Green and De Paul Beaten BY WILFRID SMITH Loyola university versus Okla homa A. & M., National Collegiate A. A. basketball champion! That's the pairing for the Chicago Sta dium's four team tournament final tonight. The Aggies whipped De Paul in the second game of the opening round robin program last night, 44 to 37, and actually had a far easier contest than this score would seem to indicate. In the opening scrap, the Loyola Ramblers, by a sudden spurt, piled up an 18 to 3 lead over Bowling Green's Falcons which eventually became a 54 to 45 victory. A crowd of 6,195 saw the double header. De Paul Seeks 3d Piac.e Tonight's opening game will match De Paul and Bowling Green for third place. Loyola previously had divided a home and home series with the Falcons. In nine minutes last night, Loyola shot too far ahead for suc cessful pursuit. It was the Ramblers' first Stadium appearance in five years. The Demons fought on even terms with the Aggies for seven minutes. They led three times, the last at 11 to 10, before Joe Bradley's long goal put Oklahoma A. & M. in front. Five minutes before intermission, De Paul trailed by only three points, then the Aggies took a 27 to 17 half time lead. Aggies Take Command De Paul's attack then collapsed. Whitey Kachan's field goal was the only successful toss from the floor in 13 minutes. In this time the Aggies had complete control at 37 to 21. The Aggies" defense massed around Eddie Mikan under the board, yet Mikan got five field goals and made six of nine free throws. De Paul's late rally was futile. Bowling Green's starting five couldn't cope with Loyola and was withdrawn after eight minutes. The Ramblers led at half time. 37 to 19, and kept control at the end with a semi-stalling attack after the Falcons cut the gap to 50-39. Jack Kerris scored nine goals for Loyola, altho withheld part of the time after committing four fouls.

That's Good, Too The Wake has been turning down so many of my contributions that I find I am buying The Tribune just to read the news. Gus Clark. Ten Years Ago Today Jim Kelly, athletic director at De Paul, was named track coach at the University of Minnesota. . . . Ohio State beat the Chicago quintet, 19 to 16. for engaging in private enterprise. " It is the current practice to send all newly commissioned officers tr army service schools for a period cf several months of additional train ing before joining their units. Fot lowing this schooling such officer are now being sent on foreign serv ice where there is a shortage of seo ond lieutenants. " In making this decision, careful consideration was given to all factors involved including those peculiar to the cases in question. " The secretary of war felt that any other decision would be inim ical to the best interests of tha service." Patterson's mention cf a need for lieutenants abroad could mean that Blanchard, Davis, and Poole might not even see a professional game, let alone play in one. Congressmen Speak Up It also was in line with a sug gestion by Chairman Andrews R-, N. Y.J of the house armed services committee, that the three be assigned to occupation duty in Germany or Japan just like many another " shavetail." Even before Patterson announced his ruling, congressmen lined up against the players bid to play for pay. The question arose as to the possibility of their resigning from the army. However, when a cadet enters West Point he is pledged to serve eight years, including the four he spends at the academy. One officer said there might be a question whether resignations would be accepted. Also, while Patterson didn't mention it, there is a 1916 law which apparently forbids leave for individuals if they plan to "compete against a civilian in civilian t tivities. Twjman Leads Critic, Rep. Tvvyman IR.. III., a navy veteran of both world wars, quar terbacked the Capito! Hill move against granting the requested leaves. Twyman told newsmen he was shocked that the department even, gave serious thought to the appli cations. ! Rep. Goff R., Idaho, an ex-football player, commented that, if Blanchard, Davis, and Poole are granted the requested leave, " the lowliest unheralded private would be entitled to an equal opportunity to be released from his military duties to make more money on the outside." "I do not want to judge the three cadets harshly," Goff added, "for behind it all is probably the urging of promoters who have their eyes on gate receipts, but Blanchard, Davis, and Poole ought to remember the draftees who faced combat dangers and hardships in Europe or the Pacific while, safe on the Hudson, they were enjoying a military education at public expense." BOND IS SET IN FOOTBALL 'FIX9; DELAY RING CASE New York, Jan. 31 P) David Pete Krakauer, identified by the district attorney's office as a gambler who handled $70,000 in bets in a day, surrendered today on eharges he participated in the attempted fix of the Dec. 15 National Football league title game.
