BOSTON CLUB TO SEEK FARM PLAN WITH BILL EVANS Tom Hawkey's Fortune Not to Be Poured Out for New Players Any Longer. BOSTON, W)--The faucet that has poured almost four millions of dollars into the American league probably closed suddenly Tuesday following the appointment of Billy Evans, former Cleveland Indians general manager, as head of the Boston Red Sox farm system. Evans, who has discovered on sand lots players as capable as those Owner Tom Yawkey has spent, hun. dreds of thousands for, will expand the Red Sox' farming properties immediately. They now include only ownership of the Rocky Mount club in the class B Piedmont league and working- agreements with the Syracuse International league club and Little Rock and Memphis in the Southern association. Won't Copy Cardinals. Evans' appointment was announced by Hawkey's general-manager, Canny Eddie Collins, who hastened to explain that the Red Sox did not intend to copy the highly successful methods employed by the St. Louis Cardinals, operatives of baseball's so-called chain gang. 'We do not plan any extensive farm system, such as the St. Louis Cardinals operate," said Collins. "We want contacts and agreements with minor league teams. That is why Evans was sought for the position. 'I talked to him about it last Fridays for the first time. He was in Cleveland. We. Tom Yawkey and I. met him in New York and came to an agreement there Monday. "The Man We Want." "We have felt that we could not continue paying prohibitive prices for new players and we decided that we would have to rely upon some reasonable methods of obtaining our replacements. We believe Evans is the man we want." Evans, a sports writer before he started his baseball career as an umpire in the Ohio-Penn league 30 years ago, also will head the Red Sox scouting system. He is considered a master in that phase of the game for, when he headed the Cleveland club, he plucked such stars as Joe Vosmik. Earl Averill, Wes Ferrell and Dick Porter off sand lots. STAY WITH LOOP Alumni in Texas Ask to Leave Big Six Conference, But No Action Planned. NORMAN, Okla., (.Pi--You can take it from Head Coach Lawrence ( B i f f ) Jones that the University of Oklahoma has no intentions of severing its "agreeable associations" with the Big Six conference. His remarks were made Tuesday anent reports that the Sooners might sever their connections with the Big Six to join the southwest conference. "A few -tiurnni who live in Texas," Jones said, -'have suffirested reasons for such T move. However, these rM.sons aiv not sufficient to interest us in w i t h d r a w i n g from associations which have been so ngrecablc over a period of years.

(.-P)--The Big Ten basketball championship for 1035-3(5 crossed the line into the state of Indiana to stay Tuesday, but was halted at the cross roads leading toward LaFayette and Bloomington. That Purdue or Indiana or both will hold the title was definitely decided Monday night as the Boilermakers defeated Minnesota 3-1 to 29, to tie their Hoosier rivals from Bloomington, while Illinois lost its | last hope for a tie by failing before Michigan, With two games left for each to play, Purdue and Indiana had nine victories and one defeat apiece. Rally to Win Game. Purdue, which still must meet Iowa and Michigan, looked anything but impressive as it turned back Minnesota to tie.Indiana in the won and lost column.' Showing the wear of their losing game against Northwestern Saturday night, the Boilermakers rallied and played better ball in the last half to win. Bob Kessler, star Purdue forward, scored 11 points to lead Bill Hanr- low, Chicago, 124 to 102 in the race for Big Ten scoring honors. Indiana, idle Monday night, must pla v Iowa and Michigan before the campaign's completion. The Townsend brothers, Earl and John, provided most 'of the fireworks with their passing and shooting as Michigan scored a 42 to 37 upset victory over Illinois at Champaign. Tie for Third. The victory gave Michigan a third place tie with the Illini at six victories and four defeats. Combes scored 19 points for the Illini. Northwestern, improving with each game, stayed in the fight for third place by defeating Wisconsin, 33 to 28. The Wildcats were led. by Marcellus McMichael, who scored 19 points. The victory gave Northwestern a record of five and four. In a. non-conference encounter, Ohio State defeated Ohio Wesyclan, ?: to 20.
