With the signing of Frank Topas Minneapolis, 220 pounder,-to trade holds with Bob Jessen, Austin Minn., .heavyweight in the opening; bout, Promoter Joe Kelly has announced the completed card for the ·wrestling show at the armory .Thursday night. The Minneapolis matman appeared in a main event in the local ring against "Bronko" Nagurski last spring and lost after a hard tussle, while Jessen lost in 20 minutes to Alan Eustace of Wakefield, Kans., last Wednesday. The semi-windup will be between Hans Graber, 220 pound German, and Mike Brendel, champion heavyweight of Austria, in a 30 minute match. Graber displayed ample class in a. bout against Earl Wampler of Scranton a few weeks ago getting a fast draw, while Brendel won over Wampler in a main event at Ues Monies, in two straight falls last Friday night. Jack Hader, Kansas City, Mo., 216 pounder who has appeared against Joe Cox and Abl Kashey, ·will get the acid test -when he enters the ring against Joe Dusek of Omaha, Nebr., in the main event, of one hour. '' ; Hader haa wrestled draws in his last three matches in a local ring. Dusek, who is one of four heavyweight brothers that are wrestling today, is considered the best of the quartet. It is likely that Promoter Kelly ·will use a heavyweight to referee all ·bouts for Thursday night, which will start at 8:30 sharp. Capt. Fred Shaffer will announce. COURT TIPS (Continue! From Sporti r«e) creased popularity with the spectator. Speed Is Appealing, Speed apepals to anyone, and many quick changes in a game's score, first one team out in front, then the other, make for interest as to the final outcome. Basketball is much harder to coach than football. One reason for this being true is that In basketball five players must be quick thinkers, an dfive must be taught to meet new situations quickly, while in football the quarterback can do a lot of thinking for the rest of the team, particularly on offense. Basketball players as a rule are more temperamental! than 'the average football man. Basketball has made such a gain that at the present time there are more boys and men playing It than any other game.

UP 10 GENTS IK ACTIVE TRADING Top Advances 15 Cents to $3.45 With Supplies Cut Down. CHICAGO, Dee. 13. (If}--Hog prices gave the first indications of buoyancy in more than a week today 'with advances of mostly 10 cents in active trading. The upswing carried the top to $3.45, up 15 cents from Tuesday's peak, with most of the good hoga selling at $3.20 to $3.10. . Supplies were reduced, both here and at the principal markets, although Chicago receipts were still far heavier than a. year ago. The chief stimulating factor was the prevailing belief that values are well worth snapping up even with a processing tax of $1 to pay. Buyers from the federal surplus relief corporation also added some competition to the trade.

Higher prices were paid for some rail and utility Issues of prime secondary ratings, hut most of the lower priced loans which were prominent In lost week's advance had an easy trend.

Collapse of Lard ^ M a r k e t Increases Hog Farmer's Woes AMES, Dec. 13.--The collapse ot the lard market has helped aggravate the desperate situation of the hog industry, Dr. Theodore W. Schultz, acting head of the Agricultural Economics section, Iowa State college, said here today. Three important factors, he said, have contributed to the collapse of lard prices: the curtailment of trie export trade, tne sharp decline of the sale oE fal backs in the south and the large production of lard. "Foreign buyers are today taking only about 35 per cent of our lard, whereaa formerly they absorbed 50 per cent of federally inspected lard production," said Dr. Schultfi. "Back of this reduced foreign demand stands the whole complicated economic force that haa strangled international trade. OMAHA LIVESTOCK. OMAIfA. Dec. 13. U"-- U. S. department oC agriculture -- .

The market had no support in the way or buying orders nor did Lt derive any encouragement from the action of securities and tbe lower levels for sterling. Decem"ber wheat which displayed Independent strength yesterday was the weakest delivery today and went to over 2c discount as compared with May, In contrast to Ic at the finish Tuesday, Eeljtng; of December w«a attributed to an operator who was thought to have liquidated some time ago. A fair e x p o r t demand was reported for C a n a d i a n wheat w i t h both the continent and the tJnfted Kingdom biiV- era, but the aggregate business was not large. Temperatures were higher over the major ixrtlon n f tbe grain belt but no moisture was received In the .io» CO11X--Country offerings of cash corn today were lesa than yesterday but were about equal to shipping sales.
