So it may be that the Oklahoma Aggies will not complete their schedule on the indoor oval. * * * Hlzzoncr also says that the autumn is the only season in which football should be tolerated, and stands In favor ol abolishing spring grid drills. * * * Basketball State Indiana, long a basketball stronghold, has a right to bask in the limelight. Gaze at the records: Purdue, Big Ten champion, and Indiana TI. one of the conference's better teams; Butler, Missouri Valley conference titleholder, and Notre Dame, loser in two contests, and much- ballyhooed as national champion. That's the Indiana list of top-rankers for this season. * K* ff A queer sort of consolation was the result of the Notre Dame-Butler-Pittsburgh games this year. Notre Dame beat Butler in two games. Then Pittsburgh beat Notre Dame In the only two games that the Irish lost this season. So little Butler came right back to spank Pitt 35 to 24. Figure that one. IS * * Iowa and Trout Something was written here recently about the opening of the Iowa trout season, and the fact that 43,000 trout have been placed in Iowa streams, their existence aided by development of cover and protection through the CCC and the state fish and game commission. * * * Iowa Isn't identified as a trout state in the usual fisher- roan's geography. But experts gay that 200 miles of streams located In Iowa are comparable to the best trout waters of the United States. Cold, spring fed streams, of which there are several in the northeast section of the state, are what the trout needs. ft :t * There are three species of trout · to be found in Iowa, the brook, rainbow, and brown trout. Perhaps · vthe name "speckled trout" would be more easily recognized than brook trout. The names refer to the same, fisl., the only real native trout of Iowa. * * * Tlu brook trout Is a highly colored fish and usually inhabits the smaller streams and the headwaters of the larger streams. It averages from three-quarters to one pound and is considered the most palatable of the trout family. It is every bit a game fish and will rise to an artificial fly, or spinner, and is fond of the most common of baits, the earthworm. * * * The rainbow trout is not a native to Iowa, but has made hearty' growth in its adopted environment. Its red and orange striping distinguishes it from the other species, and it is one of hardest scrappers of the familly. A good sized fish, the average weight runs from one to two pounds. It rises swiftly to a fly. a * * A deep hole In a large stream will usually produce a brown trout if an artificial fly is prop- (Turn to Market Page) IN ARMORY SHOW Pat O'Shocker, heavyweight champion of Ireland, who will oppose Andy Moen, Norwegian mat artist in a one hour main event at the armory Thursday night, using one of his deadly holds.

UP)--Purdue's champions placed two men on the Associated Press western conference all-star basketball team for 1934, while Wisconsin and Northwestern, which finished in a tie for second, and Illinois, the fourth place team, landed one position each. The Boilermaker choices, selected by Big Ten coaches, are Norman Cottom, the league's high scorer, at forward, and Emmett Lowery at guard. Paired, with Cottom is Frank Froschauer of Illinois. Rolf Poser of Wisconsin, was voted in as the other guard, with Lyle Fisher of Northwestern, a lad who became a regular because there was no one else, on the center post. Cottom Tops Scoring. Cottom, a junior, topped the individual scoring list with 120 points, 5 of them earned last night as the Boilermakers took a surprise beating, 27 to 26, from Illinois in the final battle of the season. Froschauer, who led the Illini to victory last night with 13 points, also is a junior. He finished the campaign in fourth place among the leading point getters, totaling 107. Fisher, another junior, appeared so awkward at the start of the year that Coach Arthur Lonborg of Northwestern left him on the bench during the pre-season schedule. Red Kopecky, who played center in the early games, couldn't stand the jumping and Lonborg again tried Fisher. The tall youth from Fargo, N. Dak., made good overnight, and ranked runnerup to CoSton with 118 points. Lowcry Scores 10S. Lowery scored 103 points, most of them during the last half of the Purdue schedule. Poser scored only 77 points, but was the keyman in a drive which boosted Wisconsin from last place to a tie for second, during the second half of the campaign. Cottom was an unanimous choice. Froschauer recieved 14 votes out of a possible 18, while Fisher won the center job by one vote over Gordon Norman of Minnesota. Lowery was the biggest vote getter among the guards with Porer two behind. Ben Selzer of Iowa, a first team selection last year, dropped to a second team berth. Selzer on Seconds. The second team including Bill Haarlow, Chicago sophomore, and Ray Eddy of Purdue, at forwards, Norman of Minnesota at center, and Selzer of Iowa, and Shaver of Purdue, guards. Coach Ward Lambert of the championship Purdue five, named his whole starting lineup of Cottom, Eddy, Bill Fehring, Lowery and Shaver, as his choice for the all-star team. Boilermakers Top Records of Season CHICAGO, March 6. (#»--Purdue today held the Lion's share of the honors for the 1934 Big Ten basketball season. The Boilermakers set a new scoring record of 512 points for 12 games, an average of nearly 43 points a game, and Norman Cottom collected 120 points, to lead the individual race.

Klick Draws in 10 Rounds Against Ross Fans Cheer as Frisco Lad Drives Hard at Finish. SAN FRANCISCO, March 6. (/P) --Frankie Klick, junior lightweight title holder, had a 10 round draw to his credit today with Barney Ross of Chicago, world's lightweight champion. Ross' lightweight crown was not at stake. In the face of odds favoring Ross, the showing of the San Francisco boy had 10,000 fans cheering wildly from start to finish. Klick's stirring rallies in the last two rounds apparently influenced Referee Toby Irwon's decision to call it an even affair. Ringside experts varied in their opinions. The Associated Press score sheet gave Ross 5 rounds with 4 to Klick and I even. They went through the 10 rounds at top speed. Ross' boxing was clearly superior but he was unable to perfect a good defense against his opponent's solid rights to the body. The Chicagoan's left side was bruised and battered after the bout. Although he won the 130-pound title from Kid Chocolate, Klick outweighed Ross at 138 pounds to 137*4. Ross is recognized as junior welterweight title holder in Illinois and California and he risked this synthetic crown.
