BATTLE LOOMS OVER ATHLETIC CONTROL CALL ISSUED FOR HEADS OF BIG 10 TO OFFER PLANS North Central Association Relationship to Be Discussed. By CHARLES DUNKLEY CHICAGO, ..March 5. fP--Battle lines'were being drawn in the West-/ ern conference today for a fight to' the finish with the North Central association of colleges and secondary schools over the issue of ath letic control !n the Big Ten."" 1 The issue flamed to a breaking point Wednesday when Walter Dill Scott, president of Northwestern university, issued a call for th. presidents of all the Big Ten uni versities, together with directors o athletics and faculty representa lives, to meet in Chicago within two weeks, to consider the Western conference relations to the North Central in regard to athletic con trol. This committee will numbei 31. Association Assumes Powers. The North' Central association, an organization in which practically every college and university between, the Alieghenies and Rock mountains is a member, was organized to bring about uniformity in scholastic standards that affected transfer of credits of students mi grating from'one school to another Recently, however, the North Central assumed, other powers, one of which was a ruling that universities should not sponsor any inler- scholastic track meets or basket ball tournaments. Because of this Amos Alonzo Stagg was forced to give up the national interscholastic basketball tournament conducted by the University of Chicago. Then the North Central begar athletic investigation of five Big Ten universities--Chicago, Minnesota, Illinois, Ohio State and Northwestern. President Scott 'of Northwestern, learning of the visit of the paid investigators of the North Central association, called the meeting. To Determine Policy. Whether the interference of the North Central in the Big Ten affairs will cause a rupture between the two organizations which might result in the Big Ten withdrawal from the North Central group, cannot be determined until the conference committee of 31 meets to de- ?-O.-.F. Long,.faculty repre- jSentative ' at "No'fthwesterrj,,. said there can be no middle ground in the conflict between the conference and the North Central. Either the Big Ten must surrender its control of athletics, or fight to retain the position it has held since the conference was organized 33 years ago, lie said. Confirms Statement. IOWA CITY, March 5. /P--Dean C. C. Williams, chairman of the Big Tea faculty governing' board and the University of Iowa's representative on the board, has confirmed the report that the Western conference will hold a meeting in Chicago soon to consider the relationship of the organization with the North Central conference on colleges and secondary schools. Members of the Big Ten are being polled, Williams said, to determine a suitable date for the meeting. GAGE ISSUES STATEMENT CEDAR RAPIDS, March 5. (^Pi- Commenting on the reported break between the Big Ten and the North Central conference over the right of the former to control its own athletic problems, H. M. Gage, president of Coe college and president of the north central organization, said Wednesday that investigations of schools in Illinois, Ohio, and Minnesota were regular triennial inspections of the institutions. Gage expressed belief that the meeting of the Big Ten schools called by President Walter Dill Scott i of Northwestern University would have a beneficial effect, remarking that the Big- Ten schools are influential institutions and that any action they may take toward clearing up problems on their campuses would have a. good result.

Moore, Upper Iowa Schwartz, Columbia Kaasa, Luther - " j Harris, Parsons .' .'G Haldorson, Luther ' By DON McGUIRE Associated Press Sports Writer DES MOINES, March 5. (/P)---Unexcelled team play and individual scoring brilliance has won for Central's wonder basketball team the distinction of being selected as a unit Tor the 1931 all-star Iowa conference quintet. Seldom have five men been, assembled under the colors of a single school who could play together in such a faultless manner. In most ot ita contests a high scoring machine, the critics doubted whether the five Flying Dutchmen could function against a close guarding quintet. But when Luther held them to 12 points, Central exhibited an cv tighter defense and held the Norsemen to nine. Caris Wins Votes. In the Associated Press concensus of Iowa conference coaches ant sports writers, only one player received more votes than any member of the Central team. He was Dale Caris, Iowa Wesleyan guard who had a slight edge on Barney Neifert. The latter, a member of the nil-conference team a year ago, leads every guard in the conference in scoring except his teammate, Babe Tyselling. Three critics named the entire Central team for the first quintet, one pointing out that the theory in selecting such an aggregation is to name a group of players that will click. "Central, I believe everyone agrees, has clicked aplenty," he added. ' Ervin "Bub" Math, the ace of the St. Ambrose quintet, and Stewart Cooper, high scoring Teacher for ward, were favorite choices of the critics in their selections of forwards. Math has been the sparkplug of the Saints' offense all year and has scored four or more points if every game. He was'held to this low total in two instances, both times when he was being guarded by Caris, the Wesleyan defensive ace. Math's greatest evening was against Columbia when he scored 8 baskets and four free throws. He was a member of the all-conference group last year, when eight men were selected for the first squad. Cooper Performs Well. Cooper, paired with Lloyd Haberichter, Tutor center, has contributed some sensational scoring performances during the year. His largest total in a single game was 16 against Parsons. He and Haberichter together accounted for 30 points in a game against Simpson and 27 against Penn. The second team choices were Marion Moore, rangy Upper Iowa center, who was moved to forward because of a surplus of centers, and Emmett Schwartz, leading Columbia scorer. Moore received more votes for forward than center. He is valuable at either post because of his size and scoring ability. Haberichter, another member of last year's first squad, gave Wilkins, the Central pivot man, a close race in the voting. The Tutor is rangy, a good floor man and an accurate ahot, and has shown exceptional development this year in defensive play. Olof "Kid" Kaasa, the Luther leader and Haberichter's all- conference running mate last year, landed the second team pivot berth. Caris stood out among the guards. The Wesleyan star not onlv stopped "Bub'.' Math, but played a large part in cutting down the scoring averages of several other conference stars. He was the key mar. in the Tiger offense and has acted as captain for the last three years. Shafland Is Outstanding. His running mate in the voting was Shafland of Luther. Altho Shafland's scoring ability is not exceptional he made up for this weakness by airtight defensive work that held his opponents to small scores. The second team bertha went to Harris of Parsons and Haldorson of Luther, the latter shifted from forward. Haldorson received votes for joth positions, the critics appnrent- y believing that all Luther players NEWS FROM TRAINING CAMPS \ 1 TM\~*. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HUTH ORDERS MORE BATS . ST.

First Baseman Hurst and Second Baseman Mallon reported Wednesday, but Chuck Klein, Pinckey Whitney and Barney Friberg are still among the absentees. * * * * CUBS NEED PITCHERS AND ROGERS HORNSBV AVALON, Cal.--Whatever improvement the Chicago Cubs show over last season, if any, apparently must come from the pitching staff and the return of Manager Rogers Hornsby to the lineup. The infield will be just as it wag expected to be last season before Lester Bell and Hornsby were injured. They will bo at third and second respectively, -with Woody English at short, and Charles Grimm at first. * * * * REDS LOOK FORWARD TO BATTING PRACTICE TAMPA, 'Fla--The Cincinnati Reds looked forward Thursday to their first batting practice of the season.

Koenig developed mound aspirations last summer and still harbors hurling ambitions, but Manager Stanley R. Harris has declared ho considers Koenig as a candidate for the shortston berth. * * * * DONIE BUSH LACKS FIRST BASE STAR SAN ANTONIO--Manager Donlc Bush is becoming pensive over the question of who will play first base for tho Chicago White Sox this year. Ray Radcliff, from Selma of the la to South-Eastern league, is the only bona fide candidate. If he fails to produce it is likely that Johnny Watwood will be called in from tho outfield for the job. are guards, and his scoring ability is sufficient to earn him a place on t\*n tnn*,, * the team. Harris, who holds the honor of being the roughest man in the conference, has only the fault of being too zealous in his guarding. He left five games via the personal foul route. Despite this weakness, he played an important part in the Parsons machine and contributed from 2 to 10 points in every game. If any team in tho conference can stop Central's machine, this f\rst quintet from the other 12 schools could do it. The aggregate point average of these five men is nearly 35 and they combine as well some of the finest guarding abilities in the conference.
