FOSEM.Bi.UM^^ Dim and Data on Iowa's Cage Kids; Recreation Groups Perform Service : Not only are Iowa's Hawkeyes receiving favorable mention throughout the Midwestern sporting circles but the latest issue of the Sporting News devotes almost a full column to the feats of Coach Lawrence "Pops" Harrison's cage kids. .. Reports, from Eric Wilson in Iowa City indicate that the Hawkeye fieldhouse will be full for the Iowa-Purdue game there on Feb. 18 About 8,500 persons can be accommodated under present seating arrangements because it's not possible to install bleachers flanking each side ol the court as the area is in use up to 6:30 p. m. on game nights. Dr. Frank Lloyd, executive director of the National ; Physical Fitness Committee, has outlined a 4-point program : for his organization, aimed at keeping athletics going during I the war and to stimulate interest and participation in them ; when the peace comes. · · First of all, Dr. Lloyd says, we must study and define I problems relating to the promotion of physical fitness, in co- li operation with national agencies and organizations, and en- kcourage the development of co-operative programs for theii [(solution. ^3-- Next on th? list is tor the c °mmittee to serve as a center SHI u stimulation of state, district and local programs fdi Siff" 6 Promotion of physical fitness, and also to make available i;|i to states, localities, organizations and agencies, upon request, SSl tne services of specialists in physical fitness. Iowa-Ohio Games Top_Big.lO Program IOWA TO FACE '~ * * * Lastly, the - committee is to I: prepare materials and serve as | a clearing, house on intormation- lal matter-pertaining to the de- ivelopment of a national program of'physical fitness. And not only do -we have the reai. work of the National Physical Fitness committee, but Hhe Industrial Recreation association is doing splendid work among the workers in the nation's war plants. Kay Millard, the ( executive secretary, says his association is dedicated to a , program, the main points of which are: 1. Acquaint management with the importance of - industrial recreation as a purt of sound industrial relations. * , * # 2. Emphasize industrial recreation in periods of national emereency to achieve industrial unity, improve morale, skill and production. 3. Develop industrial recreation as a benefit to the community and to the improvement of industrial, labor or government understanding. 4. Study methods of improving industrial recreation programs. 5. Providing a clearing house for ideas for all industries. 6. Aid members in the solution of recreation programs, 7. Encourage further study and research for recreation. 8. Function in any manner beneficial to the industrial recreation movement. * The primary Industrial Recreation association objective is the production of manuals of procedure for use in providing adequate recreation of the correct type for industrial workl.ers: Constantly on the lookout for new problems and their solutions, trained research is frequently conducted to guide members in "best procedures for dealing with new and unexpected developments. Reports on the recently conducted research dealing with I "Women in Industi-y" will be published soon. · These two organizations, only two.of many similar groups operating throughout the nation, are performing a much I greater service than many realize. They are getting right at the very roots of many of the social problems of this country at war, and playing a big role in stamping them out. And aside from this angle, they make for a greater inter- l;est in the athletics of the nation, a healthy sign for the post- Iwar period. So whenever you read about the doings of one I of these prgaitizatioris','db~n'fr'be:iaick to snicker. Think them lover a while, and you'll be able to'see the service being per- jformed in the interests of this country. jCi-Harvey, 'ormer Ring treat, Dead By JACK CUDDY New York, «1.R)_Old Charle Ifarvey, one of the most pathe cally picturesque figures th Ight game has known, is dea r this "great man" of anothe pugilistic era died broke an crippled, but still pondering th puzzle: "What happened to Ste\ -Hamas?"

DETROIT CLUB BEATS RANGERS By United Press The Detroit Red Wings, currently the hottest team in the National Hockey league, continued their pace and strengthened their hold on 2nd place in the league standings with an 8-3 victory over the hapless New York Rangers Thursday night With Joe Csrveth netting 3 goals the Wings overcame an early fjrst period score by the Rangers and scored their 3rd consecutive trouncing of the Blue Shirts. In the last 3 games be tween the 2 clubs, Detroit has to taled 3a goals to the Rangers' 5 TOUGHEST TEST Hawks Must Split to Remain on Top Rung By BUCKY O'CONNOR . Chicago, (£)--It's a big "if," bu if Iowa's · undefeated Hawkeyes can hurdle the rangy Buckeyes o Ohio State in the 2 game series opening Friday, night at Columbus they're practically a shoo-in lor a least a chunk of the Big Ten basketball title. Currently in sole possession of 1st place, with 7 victories, Messrs Ives, Danner and company face only Purdue and Northwestern in their final league engagement; after I he Ohio set. The double date with Northwestern comes March 3 and 4 by which time the Wildcats will have lost virtually their entire team to the Navy and Marines. Among Purple athletes scheduled for departure before then are Forwards Capt. Otto Graham, Nick Vodick and John Ward, Center George Felt and Guards Ronnie Schumacher and Jerry Carle. It's extremely unlikely Coach Dutch Lonborg can whip together a winning combination from those remaining, the only. regular of whom will be Guard Bennie Schadler. Northwestern presently occupies 3rd place with 5 wins and 1 loss. Purdue, of course, is another story. The 2nd place Boilermakers, beaten only once in 8 conference games, are just about the toughest outfit in the league when the chips are down. Should Iowa get by Ohio Friday night and Saturday, Purdue stands in an excellent spot to hand the Hawkeyes their 1st defeat of the season next Friday at Iowa City. It would surprise no one, however, if Ohio turned the trick either Friday night, Saturday or both, for the Bucks are a formidable crew. The Bucks actually need a double victory to stay in the .championship running. A single win would leave Iowa in undisputed ownership of 1st place and reduce Ohio to the status of a 3-time loser. But a twin shellacking of the Hawks would throw the title race into a wide open affair with Iowa, Piirdue, Ohio, Northwestern and Wisconsin all having a chance. Possibility of an Ohio triumph Friday night has been dimmed somewhat, however, because the Bucks may be without Arnold (Stilts) Risen, 6 ft. 8 in. center who ranks 5th in conference scoring with 117 points. Bruised considerably in last week's games, Risen then became ill following a *ooth extraction. . ' - - - ; ; Iowa's attack/judging by precedent, will be spearheaded by Dick Ives, whose 134 points placed him 2nd only to Michigan's Tom King n conference scoring, and Dave Danner, who stands in No. 3 spot with 125 points. Illinois returns to conference wars after a long layoff by entertaining Northwestern in a game that will be Graham's last Big Ten appearance. The Wildcat ace has been ordered to report next week for naval aviation training at Colgate unversity. The night's.,other Big Ten engagement brings Wisconsin (5-2) to Bloomington, Ind., for what should be an easy win over the hapless Hoosiers (0-7). In Major non-conference competition Purdue is host to Wabash Marquette (6-5) visits Western Michigan (10-3),.and Great Lakes (Zo-2) visits Fort Custer. American Association Teams Seek Pro Football Business Chicago, (U.PJ-- One of the first statements uttered by young Bob Carpenter after he became president of the Philadelphia Phils seemed to "take" in mid west baseball circles-- so the American association's old heads were following the brash newcomer's suggestion Friday. The association voted unanimously at Us annual spring meet- ins Thursday to consider muse- line m on a share of the expand- iut business of the National football league, as Carpenter advised last month. ' Representatives ot the 8 clubs in the midwest's Class A league will confer with Elmer Layden, commissioner ot the pro grid circuit, on what the chances are for establishing cash-basis football squads in their cities - to offset wintertime. expenses on their idle baseball plants. H was Carpenter's contention that the baseball owners have the perfect set-up for operating a football team in the off-season _ the field, the grandstands, the labor and the concessions. In fact, Carpenter went so far as to suggest that, if baseball moguls cannot obtain franchises in the elite football fraternity, they should set up a rival league of their own. Some of this seemed to make sense'to the American association big-wigs and they decided to look into the matter, at least, in the North Iowa Basketball I.

Meanwhile, in taking stock ol its manpower, the league expressed confidence that it would operate throughout the 1944 season. Fifteen per cent of its available men are 4-F and 20 per cent are under draft age. President George Trautman in- lected a new policy, based on "in union there is strength," when he urged clubs to trade within their own league. "There ' was a time when the average club would do anything 3ut peddle a castoff to other earns in the league," he said. They feared the player would, on us next visit to their city, hit he homerun which would break up the game and send the fans ivtay in a mood of disgust over the way the club was managed "Noiv, hou-ever, the owners and managers agree that any trading raffie should be within the eague. In fact. the sentiment is o help any club which encounters a manpower shortage." " rs os r- -5 Cresco Juniors, 18 to 19 iriday night, the strong St" Josephs Jo-hawks, of.

Games By BILL KING Boston, (/Pi--One of the last o! the many mile marks the grea Glenn Cunningham set along the indoor track circuit--his 4:10 record for the Boston A. A.'s Huntei event--appears certain of erasure Saturday night when Gil Dodds the Boston Divinity student, anc Bill Hulse, the speedy chemical engineer from Passaic, N. J., resume their rivalry at the Boston Garden. Dodds gained first blood, ,,,, far as 1944's indoor competition is concerned, over Hulse with his 4:IO.(i triumph in last week's Millrosc meet. When Dodds went to the. Millrose mark, he was laboring under the handicap of awaiting the arrival of his first child, a son born early this week. Now, according to Jack Ryder, his coach his mind is at ease,-as far as parenthood is concerned, and there is no reason why he should not turn in a startling 4:07 effort ' Dodds has the speed and stamina, to do 4:07 or better right now," Ryder insists. There will be at least 3 othei Hunter starters but all of the experts agree that the race is strictly between Dodds and Hulse. who turned in outdoor times of 4:06.1 and 4:06 respectively while chasing the sensational Gunder Hagg all over the country last sum- By CHIP ROYAL AP Features Sports Editor -- tried 3 greatest all-time started *»£§ . ^* Played, 3,033; and other marks h n t . r i r b ? tU E' 23; mD5t "mes 2 first place Votes lhc Geor K' a p «ach received only Tate Speaks at Meeting of Hi-Y Club A highlight in the weekly meetings or the Hi-Y club was the talk given by Bill Tale on "Sportsmanship."
