St HONORABLE XEKIIOS Forwards--Bob Igney, Purdue; Bo Dro. Indjana, and Tom Harmon, Michigan Center--Bob Koble. Northwestern. Guards --Paul Makj, MlMMola; Ad Vance Northwestern, snd BtU Murphy, Chicago CHICAGO, (U.R)--A team with everything--speed, spirit, scoring and defensive ability--was namec Friday in the United Press all-Big Tec basketball selections. One-two-thrce on every ballot were the names of the Big Ten's top three scorers, tewis (Pick) Dehner of Illinois, Capt. Jim Hull of Ohio State and Capt. Ben Stephens of Iowa. Dehner is the center and the others are forwards. Mentioned almost as often was Capt. Ernie Andres of Indiana, holder of the all-time conference scoring.record of 30 points In a single game. The fifth was Fred Beretta of Purdue, an aggressive guard who helped shatter Indiana's nine game victory sfreak last Monday. Andres, guiding star o£ the otherwise inexperienced Indiana team now leading the conference with Ohio State, is the only repeater on the first five. Hull, Dehner and Stephens all stepped up from.last year's second team. Alternates this season were Dave Dupee of Wisconsin and John Kundla of Minnesota, senior forwards, Bill Menke, Indiana's sophomore center. Bill Hapac of Illinois and Bob Lynch o£ Ohio State, junior guards. Every one of the first five had something almost as vital as individual ability during this campaign. Each was a leader, although only three actually, were team captains.

Big Gate, Decides Big Man of Boxing By DREW MIDDtETOX Associated Press gports Writer NEW YORK, (fp)~It 5s no grea shock to learn that William Harrison Dempsey, the rcsfauranteu and hotel tycoon, has no high opinion of bold Antonio Galento. Splitting neither hairs nor infinitives, Jack said he didn't think Galento was much of a mauler fhat he hasn't earned a shot at Joe Louis' heavyweight title, tha there are other possibly more worthy contenders around and that, strangely enough, "it probably will draw a hell of a crowd.' "I had Galento myself three or four years ago," said Dempsey. "He wasn't very good then. Since'then he's had a lot of fights, been awful sick with' pneumonia and drunk enough beer to float Primo Camera. It won't add up." "How come Galento gets the fight? If he wants to fight Louis ind is so good, why didn't he light some o{ these other guys? Like Nova, Baer. Fair or even my boy. Burman. In my day if you wanted to fight the champion, you riad to fight every other good man to get the shot. You beat everyone else and you got your :hance." By this time a crowd three- deep was gathered around the big Juy. It is remarkable how he lolds'his public. The managers, seconds and fighters stood around with their ears bent. Twelve years after his last bid for the title, Dempsey is the biggest figure in the game. "There were more good men around! then, too," said Dempsey with a pull on his stogie. "There were 10 or 12 good heavyweights in every town. When I say good, I mean hip, tough fellers. Not all of them could box and not all of them could hit but they were tough and they loved »o fight. They followed the old gag-, 'keep your chin in and your pants off the floor.'" He shook his head. "Well, I in't runnin' the game. Sometimes wish I was. I know one thing. E I was, Galento would have to ight them other guys before he ot a shot at Louis. You know ne thing though. Galento won't all Louis a bum after the fight, le probably won't be able to alk." 'ioneers, Drake in Valley Cage Windup DBS MOINES, ()--Grinnell's asketball team will play Drake ere in the final appearance for he Pioneers in a Missouri Valley ontest. Grinnell, which will withdraw rom the valley to assume mem- rcrship in the midwest at the end }f the present school year, can linch third place in the confer- nce by licking the Bulldogs. The. game, however, is even more important to Drake. The Sulldogs still have a chance to get he Missouri Valley title. If the Oklahoma Aggies lose their final wo games and Drake wins the Bulldogs would be the undisputed "hampions. Three Foes Challenge iuskers in Track Tilt COLUMBIA, Mo., (U.P.I--Three chools--Kansas State, Missouri md Oklahoma--challenged Ne- iraska's three-year supremacy in he Big Six indoor track and field meet Friday, and it was common jehef that one of them would take the title.
