MILLIKIN QUINTET TO BE OPPONENT IN GAME DEC, 2 Moffitt, Blackmer, Bastian to Be in Lineup With Grim and Ben Selzer. IOWA CITY, Nov. 30.--A basketball team of clever veterans, amply equipped with speed, precision and scoring talent, now is in the final stages of preparation for the opening of the University of Iowa's 193334 basketball season.

J. and John Grim of Iowa City, guards, Coach Williams declared Tuesday. Moffitt, a senior, is expected to show the scoring ability which gave aim fourth place among conference point-makers two years ago. and the 6 foot 4 inch Ivan Blackmer, a smooth passer and shooter, will continue his intercollegiate career nterrupted In early January by In- illgibility. Blackmer waa a star in December games last season. Bastian Heavy Scorer. The center, Bastian, is using- his i feet 5 inches of height to advan- age, and probably will bo even more valuable than he was last vear when he led Iowa scorers with 154 points. Selzer, all-conference uard, and Grim, another agile vet- Jran, form one of the most effective defense combinations in Iowa history. Millikln has a quintet with three recruits and two veterans, headed by Delmar Cox, 6 foot 4 inch center, and Melvin Goldman, the slight 135- jound forward whose runninsr one- mndred shots made him the M11I1- tln high scorer a year ago.

"Broadcasting will come back," Brewer said here last night. "But each institution will have strict control over It. At Missouri, for instance, the intermission between halves will be devoted to advertising- the university, rather than some commercial product." The question of lifting the ban on broadcasting of all conference games and home games with non- conference opponents will be taken up at the annual meeting of Big Sir officials at Excelsior Springs early in December. A NEEDED RULE One of the changes in basketball rules for this season la the provision that the officials must handle the ball on a throwln from out of bounds. The change has been needed It will eliminate the advantage gained by a team which recovers an out of bounds ball quickly and puts it into play before the opposition can eel set. It will also eliminate the helpful assistance given home teams by crowds who toss the ball to the home players to allow them a fast break from the sideline; at the same time any hindrance to a fast break for the visiting players will be eliminated.

Famous Men PayTributes as Sports Columnist Dies Heart Attack Causes* McGeehan Death in Georgia. NEW YORK, Nov. 30, J--The ast edition of "Down the Line" ap- eared today in the New York Serald-Tribune. In place of William O. HcGee- mn's pungent comment on sports and the world in general it was a column of tributes from famous men to the white-haired wielder of the slapstick who conducted the column in the Tribune, the Herald and in the Herald-Tribune after the newspapers were combined. The "Sheriff" died yesterday at Brunswick, Ga., of a heart attack. Twice in the past month his illness had forced him to enter a hospital at Brunswick, where he had gone to visit his old friend Wilbert Robinson, former manager of the Brooklyn National league baseball club, and twice he had rallied. A week ago he was allowed to leave the hospital and go to a cottage at Sea Island Beach although physicians told him death might come at any time. Apparently well along the road to Improvement, he suffered a sudden attack yesterday and died before Mrs. McGeehan, who had gone to Brunswick on a shopping tour, could return. Today sports leaders, his fellow writers, a great army of readers and even those who had writhed under his biting 1 comments or sputtered In anger when touched by one of the many unique and appropriate epithets he applied to people and things in sporta, joined to pay tribute.
