Tenney and Casey manned the forward spots, Bob Chute was at center *with Peterson and Zallek handling the guard spots.

Otto Graham in Final Game Saturday Night ASKS REFEREE'S VOTE BE VOID Cuddy Wants Another Judge at Ringside By JACK CUDDY New York, (U.R)--Deprive the referee of voting power and add a third judge to the ringside; and professional boxing will like a long step toward accuracy and honesty in arriving at decisions. I make this suggestion, after 30 years of participation and observation, because of the recent, sustained criticism of decisions at Madison Square Garden. This criticism of decisions is nothing new. I imagine we have had them since the days when Jim Figg mixed quarter-staffing with'-fisticuffing back in 1719. However, in m o d e r n times, changes have been made down through the years, particularly in the past 3 decades, to clip the wings of the referee. But that clipping is not completed yet. The third man in the ring, who not so long ago was sole judge and policeman of the fight, has had his judiciary powers modified by the interjection of two judges at the ringside in most fight centers in the United States. Despite this modification, the referee still is a double-barrelled menace to honest decisions through (1) human inability and (2) skullduggery. I claim that a referee should be only a good policeman for a bout. And that if he does his policing duties properly, is in no position to exercise the judicial function of determining who won what round, or who won the bout. Yet, he still is ffiven a vote of equal value with that of.the two judges, who have nothing else to do but to decide on the merits of the fiehters. A referee, doing his job properly, must keep constantly in motion to prevent blocking the view of spectators or the lenses oE photographers. He must concentrate on the movements of both principals, with all energy devoted to (1) breaking them from clinches; (2) warning against' fouls; (3) keeping the pace interesting to the spectators: and (4) being eternally alert so that he can stop a bout when a boxer is stunned by head blows, blinded by eye injuries, or bleeding dangerously from cuts. If a referee does his policing job properly, he will have no more accurate idea at the end of a close, furiously contested round as to the winner of that round than the fighters, themselves. And I can tell you this: Generally they have none. Too often judges aiid newspaper men, sitting quietly at the ringside, have great difficulty in determining a winner of a round-whether they use the minutc-by- minute or any other system of scoring. So I say: Let the referee be only the policeman. And as a policeman let him warn a boxer on a ful, but let the judges, automatically take away lhat round on a foul, but let the judges automati- cial authority be exercised in stopping a fight because of the condition of a contestant. The average Boys' Club of America has 1,000 members. By BOB MEYER C h i c a g o , U.R--Tipoffs from midwesleni basketball circles . One of lhe greatest basketball stars ever developed in the mid- west docs his swan song Saturday *r' S .1 - ' ; Capt Otto Graham of Northwestern will play the last game of his 3-year collegiate career against Camp Grant on the Chicago stadium floor. A V-5 student, Graham Will report for naval aviation training at either DePauw or Monmouth college Feb. 17 ... He will be honored m a farewell ceremony Saturday night when he receives an N blanket from Northwestern's iettermen's association and then sets his orders from Lt. Ilenrv Penfield of naval aviation procurement. Graham's loss may cost Northwestern the Big Ten basketball title, for "all-around Otto" has been the mainspring of the Wildcat offense as well as the chief rebound man . . . Runner-up to the conference scoring champions dunng the past 2 seasons, lie forgot the limelight this year to weld his team intg the best-balanced outfit m the conference ; Northwester,!! must play 5 conference games without Graham's services . . . These include Illinois, Michigan, Purdue and 2 with Iowa. A versatile athlete, Graham has been an important cog in Northwestern sports plans tor 3 years, in football and baseball as well as basketball. . . . His passing marks what is virtually the last of that lush pre-war sports era in the midwest that brought forth such "big names" as Tom Harmon, Nile Kinnick, Andy Phillip and Johnny Kotz. lo name only a few. Inciflentally, the Northu-estern- Camp Grant contest figures to be one of the best of the season although the Wildcats probably ivill be tired from their conference game against Illinois Friday. . Camp Grant, featuring cx-Notrc Dame Star Johnny Niemiera, Mickey Rottner and Stan Szukala is one of the few midivestern teams using a slow break... The Warriors have speed but prefer to bringr it up slowly. Take it from Nick Keurns the veteran official, Elroy Hirsch oj Michigan is the best jumper in these parts and one oJE the best Kearns has ever seen. . . "Crazy Legs" Hirsch of football fame can really get those feet off the floor for a-small man. . . . This is his first season of college basketball too. ' . Coach Doug'Mills of Illinois is just one of many sport luminaries who refuses to put any faith in scoring records--especially those established in the Big Ten since the shameful fall of Chicago Mills "Whiz Kids" s c o r e d ' 9' points against Chicago last year and Iowa tallied 103 last week against the pitiful Maroon defense. ... To Mills way of thinking, the 67-65 battle between Wisconsin and Northwestern stands as the Big Ten team scoring rec-' ord. . . Many experts advocate that, the conference write off the record all t h o s e preposterous marks set up against Chicago when, and if, the Maroons retire to competition of their own caliber.

Bruins Gain Tie for 4th With Chicago By UNITED PRESS The Boston Bruins moved back into a tie for fourth place with the Chicago Black Hawks Wednesday and another chance for the Stanley cup playoffs, by their 3 to 0 victory over the league leading Montreal Canadiens Tuesday night. A crowd of 12,000 saw the Bruins, losers in 7 out of their last B games, 'outplay the visitors all the way. Huss Kopak, a rookie, opened the Boston scoring in the first period, and the teams resorted to defensive play until Buzz Boll broke axvay for 2 more goals in the final period. Paul Gardiner, Boston goalie, kept the high powered Montreal line from penetrating the net with remarkable saves.
