By JEAN BOSQUET LOS ANGELES, March 4 (-Jim Thorpe, acclaimed the greates football player of all time and once holder of the title of world's best all-rouhd athlete, is working here as a laborer with pick and shove for $1 a day, but he can still grin The once mighty Indian of Carlisle, who in 1912 almost single handed cornered Olympic honors for his native country, only to relinquish his trophies later under charges of professionalism, is not ashamed of his job. Big Jim is determined to beat back. "I'm not thru," he said today. Jim is a nonentity in a motley crew of diggers excavating for the New Loa Angeles county hospital. It s hard to find a reason for the present state of affairs of the smiling former athletic kingpin? ( "Guess it's an old story," he grins. I liked to be a good fellow with the boys. But I'll come out of this. And I'll do some saving when I do " Thorpe attended Carlisle Indian school 'from 3307 to 1!)12. He starred in football, baseball and track. He was named all-American halfback in 1011 and 1912. From 1014 to 1929 he played professional football and baseball. Closing h! 3 gridiron career in i 1929 the famous Indian became master of ceremonies for the transcontinental bunion derby staged two years ago by C. C. Pyle. Then Jim faded from the sports picture. Odd jobs developed to hia present toil. Jim is dickering with two schools for the post of all-around coach. The schools are Dickinson college at Carlisle, Pa., where he won undying fame, and Mississippi A. M. "I'd feel better back at Carlisle In the meantime the pick and shovel will have to do."
