SPORTSCRAPS "U7HAT might be termed a wave of '* popularity has been enjoyed this season by skiing. In large numbers ooutdoor sports enthusiasts in New England, the northwest, the Rocky mountain region and the mountainous sections of California this winter have tried the sport for the first time and liked it. * * * SKIING IS THE FASTEST METHOD OF HUMAN TRAVEL WITHOUT MECHANICAL CONTRIVANCE SAVE FALLING OUT OF AN AIRPLANE. * . * « The skier can give your crack sprinter, stnr skater-and football line plunger a head start and beat him feet down. But ns a sport skiing appears comparable to jumping off Brooklyn bridge. * * * Famous last lines -- "That's all. Go out and lick them!" * * # Joe Reiff of Northwestern was the first Big Ten basketball player to reach and pass the 100 point mark for the 1931 season. * * * Illinois has solved the problem of fouls in boxing. Bouts can end in fouls there hut the fighters don't get paid. Next to counting a warrior out and plastering a knockout on his record there is no greater way of encouraging action, and discouraging faking, than to trifle with-the finances. * * * Johnny Layton, former world's champion, filed an official protest with the National Billiard association against the proposed match between Arthur Thurnblad, world's three-cushion billiard champion and Willie Hoppe, a three-cushion title hopeful. "If any one gets a match with Art Thurnblad, I am the one who must be considered," Layton wrote to C. A. Storer, director of tournaments for the National Billiard association.
