Coach bward T.

This team won 35 out of a 40 schedule last year. C. M. Bas" Kanawha will book the riodie housecleaning principles. The mortality rate for 1933 apparently will be as high as ever even though the demands for high pressure production are less con- spicious than they were when put under the Carnegie foundation's microscope a few years ago Upwards o£ a dozen head coacheg so far have become involved in shake- upa or prospective changes at larger colleges or universities. The list may be doubled before the head hunting season closes. Two Mentors Replaced. Head coaches at Texas A. M and Lehigh already have been replaced. Others have resigned at Dartmouth, Texas, Kentucky and Boston university, more or less under fire. Speculation meanwhile has been rife over possible changes at North Carolina, Auburn, and Rice in the south, Yale and New York university in the east, Notre Dame, Indiana, Purdue, Missouri and Wisconsin in the middle west. Chief interest centered nearly all season in the possible shakeup at Notre Dame. Support for Hunk Anderson, who succeeded Knute Rockne, has been rallied since Notre Dame's exciting last game victory over the Army but the feeling persists that a change is likely. The name of Noble Kizer of Purdue, has been most often linked with the fob despite denials. · - - - - -Tale Disappointed. Yale shifted coaches, a year ago, with Reggie Root replacing- Dr. Mar. via Stevens as head coach, but Ell aJumni have been disappointed by the results, including defeats at the hands of Harvard and Princeton. Agitation has dveioped for a shakeup along the lines of Princeton's policy in going outside its graduate body to engage Fritz Crisier as head coach. The effect of late season victories has served to fortify some coaches who were distinctly under the guns. Thus Harvard's triumph over Yale helped subdue the criticism o f Eddie Casey while Cornell's successive victories over Dartmouth and Pennsylvania seem to have quieted alumni seeking the scalp of Gil Dobie. In brief here are some of the other coaching situations: Kentucky: Harry Carnage resigned; latest indicated candidates include John J. McEwan, former Army star who resigned last year as Holy Cross coach; Chet Wynne of Auburn, and Elmer Layden of Duquesne. Dartmouth Criticism. Dartmouth: Jackson Cannell resigned, after outbreak of undergraduate criticism; although contract has one more year to run. No action on possible successor. Texas A. and M.: Madison Bell succeeded by Homer Norton, former Centenary college coach. Texas: Clyde Littlefield resigned, to devote time to track coaching, and a half dozen names considered for successor. Indiana: E. C.

Suppose a play i s to be made to a guard who will be cutting in to the basket. The center will fake a pass to ; forward, while one forward wil block the guard's man and the ?? 16 in f ° r an ""guarded the basket. There are many variations of suc plays. A spectator, by watching closely, can get a big "kick" of the play alter he learns to watch for the fakes and blocks. Two Part Offense. There are two parts to the offense m basketball, the fast break ami the set play. Almost every team uses both methods. On the fas break, a defending team will taki the ball from the backboard, the guard passing out to a forward, who passes to the center. The center will dribble, and attempt to draw the opposition out. Then a pass to the forward at the side of the floor wil leave an open shot. The spectators shouldn't become disgusted this season if they sec the Mason City team start out fast on a break, then stop completely while one man holds the ball, and wait until everyone is set in position for a play. The players are told to do just that. It may look as though they should keep going and try for the basket; but they will not take the chances of losing the ball on a risky shot. Mason City prefers to get set and then try to outguess and outplay the defense for a wide open attempt at the goal. FIGHT RESULTS My THK ASSOCIATED TRKSS GI.ENN FAI.I.S, N.

B.V PAUL MICKELSON Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO, Dec. 7. .P--The door may be opened for either Notre Oarac. Nebraska, Michigan State or Marquette to join the Western Athletic conference, better known as the Big- Ten, before another football season rolls around. Proposed plans to merge the University of Chicago and Northwestern university, a move that would automatically reduce the conferences membership to nine and leave a spot open, were reported progressing so rapidly today by its proponents that the consolidation may be effected by the time the 1934 fall term opens. Under the merger plan, Northwestern would become strictly an undergraduate school, and Chicago would revert to a post graduate university. Graduates aren't allowed to compete in college football in the Big- Ten HO the football players would all go to Northwestern. Michigan SUite Choice. Of the four probable candidates for membership in the Big Ten Michigan State was regarded as the most probable choice of the confer ence leaders. Nebraska was consid ercd too far removed from confer ence territory as well as belonging to the Big Six, an enterprising group; the old feud between Field ing H. Yost of Michigan and the late Knute K. Rockne probablj would block Notre Dame's reques for admission, whereas Marquette 1 football team last season was fa below Big Ten standard. Michigan State for years ha been one of the real strong team of American football, holding Mich igan's championship teams of 1930 and '31 to scoreless ties. During the 1933 campaign, Michigan State siled up one of the best records in :he country although Michigan beat 'ts old rival, 20 to 0. Several Favor Nebraska. On the other hand several con- 'crence members undoubtedly woulc ike to have Nebraska as a rival for ihe Big Ten championship. Iowa and Minnesota already are great rivals of the Cornhuskers, who have dom- nated the Big Six almost without nterruption since the conference was formed and demonstrated their ability to take care of themselves in any college football league. If the Northwestern-Chicago merger is effected by next fall, pros- lects are that the Big Ten will proceed as the "Big Nine" at least un:il 1935 as all football schedules for 1934 are completed. . , Ch!t»iro.

NEW YORK, Dec. 7. (IP)--A record of progress was marked up today in the efforts to check the deaths caused by football as a survey made by the Associated Press revealed only 26 deaths directly attributable to the game during the 1933 season. Last year a similar survey showed 38 football deaths and in 1931 there were 50. Ten more deaths may be partly charged against the game but are considered doubtful. In these cnse-s doctors said football injuries may have been contributing factors. High schools again showed the number of fatalities 16, and "sandlot" games were next with 13 dea'Ax Not one college varsity player died as the result of footbttl injuries and only two college frcsh- me are listed as having died of injuries that could be traced to sup crvlsed games or practice. The 36 deaths, including the 10 "doubtful" fatalities, arc classified as follows: College, 5; high school 16; sandlot, 13; semi-pro and athletic clubs, 2.

In the percentages of games won and lost Hubbell, with 23 victories and 12 defeats for a .657 mark, was third.
