He is Hay Patterson, 6 foot, 3 inch veteran of 2 4 campaigns, who passed Michigan's Tom King for the individual scoring' lead last weekend as he sparked Wisconsin to 2 victories over the Wolverines by scoring 19 and 16 points. Patterson, who holds a medical discharge from the army, finished 3rd in conference scoring last year. After breaking into Big 10 competition as an understudy to Kotz, one of the finest shots in history, Patterson finally is getting his chance :it the spotlight as the key man in Coach Bud Foster's offense. King, Michigan's' sharpshooter who scored 24, 16 arid 13 points in his first 3 games, can blame Wisconsin's Russ Wendland for his slip to 2nd place this week. King scored 3 points Saturday night before Wendland came into the game to hold him scoreless during the remainder of play. Bill Lodge of Purdue, whp .had accumulated 40 points in 2 games, also had a bad night Saturday, getting only 1 · field goal. Lodge and King were tied for 3rd place in average-scoring with 14 points a game. Top man in average points was Don Grate, rangy Ohio State cap- lain, who warned the conference of the Buckeye potencies last weekend when he registered 48 points iu Z games against Indiana. Dave Danner of Iowa \vas 2nd in average scoring with 15.5, after collecting 31 points in Z starts. Stan Patrick- of Illinois 'and Charley Haag of Purdue were tied for. 3rd place in total points with 53 each and tied in average scoring with 13.2 points.

Speed in cutting for the basket, accurate shooting and general all- round floor work stamp the slippery little fellows on the hai'd- wqod. A! Ingcrroan, 150 pound 5:07 star for Josh Cody's Temple Owls, is one of the best. This little fellow, coaches and veteran cage writers are agreed, is one of the best-shots to show up in years. lie played high school basketball only last season but so faf this winter he has b«en a pain in the neck to such teams as Oklahoma Aggies, Western^Kentucky, Havana, Penn State, Muhlenberg and St. John's of Brooklyn. Little Hy Gotkin, 5:08, is the star for St. John's, beaten in only 1 game. In Maryland, Gen O'Conor of the Baltimore Loyola Quintet, is outstanding. He stands 5:08 and tips the scales at 150 pounds. He is the son of Maryland's governor, Herbert R. O'Conor. Then there is Gene O'Brien, 150 pounder who led New York university to a' 1-point victory over Connecticut; Chuck Eadcs, the 5:08 midget of the Valpariso, Ind., team that upset mighty DePaul; Harry Bushkar, of Logan, W. Va., high scoring 5:08 guard for Virginia Tech; and Speedy Harry Kiggs, 5:08 University of Virginia forward. Perhaps the tiniest player ot all is Mai Bramble, of the high scoring Rhode Island stale quintet. He weighs only I2G pounds and stands 5:04. ^ A Chk'HKO, U.P.)--A revolutionary experiment that may portend drastic changes in the game of basketball will be hatched Friday night when DePaul and Marquette players do battle without the customary expulsion for personal fouls. The whole thing is the brainchild ot Bill Chandler, Marquette coach, who thinks a player should be banished to the bench for 3 minutes after commiting his 4th foul. \ substitute may be inserted into the game for the exiled player, who may return to action after the timekeeper notifies his coach that his 3-minute sentence has elapsed. The player must serve an additional 3-minute term for each foil! .committed after his 4th pcr.sonaU Chandler created n furor around the iKition's basketball circles last year when he first proposed his "penalty box" rule. Chandler created another furor at a meeting of the Chicago basketball writers Monday over" the term "penalty box." "It's not a penalty box, so I wish the papers would stop calling it that," Chandler said. He prefers to call it an "enforced substitution."" Coach Hay Meyer of DePaul agreed to a suggestion that the DePauI-Marquette game at the Chicago' stadium be the guinea pig, purely for the sake of experi- mental'research. So, at long last, Chandler will have the chance to see his "dream game" come true. "I think my rule will have to be adopted sooner or later," he said. The officials nowadays don't call half the fouls committed because they know theyjd be putting men out of the same right and left if they did. But if a man is only temporarily expelled after 4 personals, officials won't hesitate to call all the violations. This rule will help the officials." "And a player is not going to do any more fouling than normal, because no kid wants to be out of action for 3 minutes," Chandler added. Nick Kearns, veteran official who, incidentally, is going to work the great experiment Friday, disagreed emphatically with Chandler. "You watch," warned Kearns, "it'll be the 'foulest' game in history. When a kid knows he-won't be expelled permanently from the game, he'll pour on the rough stuff. "In the first place, an official can't call all the fouls in basketball. It would take 3 officials to do it and, besides, it would slow down the frame. You can't call all the fouls when the coaches are COLLEGE BASKETBALL By The Associated Press) East St. Joseph's 53; La Sallo 37. Arms Corp. 45: Floyd Bennett Field 38 Ursinus 53; Phlladel.
