HYLAND FLING By DICK HYLAND While the great name colleges of the National Collegiate Athletic Association are throwing mud at other in most undignified fashion, and being as fa 1st as sponge-rubber fronts the while, Johns Hopkins University of Baltimore rolls merrily along with an athletic program that, depending upon the season, finds 68 to 90 of its 1750 students participating. This program costs $40,000 a. year and is taken out of the university's funds. It is a dead loss, financially, because Johns Hopkins charges no admission fee to any of its , home contests. - When a team, such as Penn Military Academy, comes to "Baltimore to play Johns Hopkins, that team pays its own way, gets not one penny return from the game. When Johns Hopkins goes to another university to play, it refuses to accept any cf the gate money that university might acquire by eharging admission to the game. This y tern has been in operation for some 15 years. It was started as a program of "sports for all and all for sports.'' That ' it seems to work Is indicated by the fact that Johns Hopkins is a perennial contender foi the national lacrosse title and was champion, last year, of the Mason-Dixon Conference (17 members in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.) in wrestling and golf. It lost but one football game in 1918 and was invited to play in the Tangerine Bowl. It refused the invitation. Marshall S. Turner, director of athletics at Johns Hopkins, saj-s, "If intercollegiate athletics have any value other than monetary, they should be financed by the university and controlled by the educational and not the monetary value. "Our only purpose in eliminating guarantees and gate receipts," he explains, "is to remove any reason, or even the slightest temptation, to conduct our intercollegiate athletic program other than for the educational value therein." . To an alumni secretary, such as Ohio State's Jack Fullen, this is so much Sanskrit, mumblings in a meaningless dead language. Ohio State you see, has a monstrous football stadium and it must be filled and money gained to support it. When Mr, Fullen's recent blast at the Rose Bowl game is translated its meaning could well be, "We didn't get enough money to make it worth the trouble to go to Pasadena." The Big 9-10 cuts up the Rose j Bowl take among its members I and Commissioner Tug Wil- j son's office and that leaves lit- i tie for the playing team, over and above expenses.. The University of Southern California might also take a dim view of the Johns Hopkins system. Unless things have been changed around Troyville quite recently with a minimum of publicity, the dollars that come in the gate at Trojan football games and put into the university's general fund and the general fund takes care of university expenses, including the salaries of professors. The advocates of the system that produces big-money football cry that the profits from football support all other athletic and club programs at the universities. This is undoubtedly correct. Eliminating confusing factors, we therefore get a direct relationship between the overemphasis of football and these extraneous activities. Football is overemphasized so that sewing, debating, hobby clubs, track and field, boxing and what not activities may be indulged in more easily. This naturally brings forth the question: Is the support given such activities worth the stink raised by overly emphasized and high-priced football? Baltimore's Johns Hopkins takes in no money from sport gates and has up to 90 of its 1750 students participating in athletic programs at a cost of $40,000 to the university. Comparably, if the Trojans were not interested in making monev at the gate from football, they could charge a nominal SI a head admission, all seats unreserved and first come, first seated, and undoubtedly support their entire athletic program from the proceeds. That, of course, would eliminate hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Trojan general fund, and no one has ever accused Southern California of being a wealthy university. Its administrative functions would certainly be complicated by any such action. But there would be no hypocri'. Hockey Results NATIONAL LEAGt'E Chiraeo, t; Montreal. 2 Det.roit. 3: Toronto. 3 (tit.

A couple of mild upsets marked novice semifinal bouts at Wilmington Bowl last night as eager mitt slingers punched their way into the finals. Victors now move into the opening night bouts Wednesday of the Times Golden Gloves Tournament at Hollywood Le gion Stadium. Joe Gutierrez, of Johnny Forbes'- North Broadway stable in Los Angeles,, scored a mild" upset in beating Art Chavez in one -of the featherweight semifinals. Chavez, an El Toro Marine Base star, had gained the semifinals in rather easy fashion. But last night he couldn't stand the gaff of Gutierrez's sharp jab bing and dropped the duke. Close Nod . Robert Mattison, a lightweight from the Long Beach Navy Ease, scored a close decision over Richard Seifried, highly touted mitt slinger who'd looked very good earlier in bouts at Southwest Arena. Mattison Wednesday night gets his big chance for the novice title when he takes on Richard Aguire. But Mattison will need all his artillery, Aguire having won last night on a technical knockout in two rounds from Frank Garcia. Aguire threw leather hard and often and had Garcia in a bad way when the bout was called in the second canto. Gutierrez gets his title chance against Luis Campo. Campo. who tosses lots of leather with both .mitts, scored a TKO in two : rounds over Manuel Luna. NOVICE DIVISION' (Semifinal malts) Flyweights Harvey Price dec.
