NORTH CENTRAL MEETS WESTERN DEMANDS GAGE SAYS THAT AIMS OF GROUPS APPEAR SIMILAR Affairs of Conference Will Not Be Investigated and Tourneys May Be Held. CHICAGO, March 18. tff^-Peace instead of war reigned today between leaders of the Western conference and the North Central association of. colleges and secondary schools. When it appeared certain that the two groups would wage a fight to the finish over athletic principles, H. M; Gage, president of Coe college and chairman of -the-North Central association's commission on institutions of higher education^ issued a statement in which he said .the furore was only the result of a mistake. : , No Reason for Break* "There is no. reason -for. a break between the North Central association and the Western-conference," he said. "Our aims are the same and if no Western conference institution wants its athletic affairs Investigated, we will not investigate them." . , ' . . . The dispute between the conference and the north central grou£ started two weeks ago when some of the organizations investigators visited Northwestern university. Officials of Northwestern refused to offer any aid ia their investigation and demanded to know by what right they planned to conduct one. Later President Walter Dill Scott of the university asked all heads of the Big Ten universities to meet and consider the incident. But with Dr. Gage's statement, no such meeting' ia expected and the matter is certain to drop for the time at least. Tourneys- May Be Held. Dr. Gage also said that the North . Central, association did not attempt to force abandonment of national prep tournaments such as the University of Chicago's basketball championship. "It is squarely up to the high schools," he said. "It they want tournaments they can have them." The north central,body continued its convention today and expected to hear from various committees on academic and athletic surveys.

COLLINS EXPECTS ADDITION OF BAT FUNGERS TO WIN Depends on Van Camp, Rye to Pad Out a Weak Hitting Squad. By GAYLE TAJUBOT, Jr. PENSACOLAj Fla., March 18. UP) --A couple of slugging rookie outfielders, a young shortstop who looks like he might hit, and a pair of pitching veterans salvaged from the minors form the foundation for an intensive rebuilding program in the ca,mp of the Boston Red Sox. Forty-four athletes reported to Shano Collins, the new pilot, formerly skipper of the Des Moines Demons, but the five star newcomers -are the ones who promise to hoist the Sox out of eighth place, if such a feat is possible. Collins isn't predicting a penny's worth. Pair to Add Power. The pair expected to add batting power to the outfield are Albert Van Camp, a -.344 clouter from Des Moines last year, and Gene Rye, the diminutive one who hit .367 for Waco in the Texas league. A. L. Marqiiafdtj a sweet fielding shortstop who hit .324 for Nashville in the southern, appears the .best prospect'for getting more robust hitting in the Infield. It waa largely the failure of the inner guardians to hit their weight that kept tha Red Sox In the cellar last season. Wiley Moore, one time world series hero with the Yankees, and James "Lefty" B rillh eart. a former Cub, came- back from Minneapolis and St. Paul, respectively, to add strength to an already capable mound staff. Moore won 22 games last season. They promise to fit in well with the veteran group. Milt Gaston, Dan McFayden, Ed Morris, Horace Liaenbee and Jack Russell. Sweeney Favored. ' Bille Sweeney, who hit a respectable .309 last year, at first; the veteran Bob Reeves at second; Marquardt at shorthand Jack Rothrock, a converted outfielder, at third, form a tentative infield that has been favored by Collins in workouts and inter club games. / If Marquardt takes over short, he will have to beat out the weak hitting Hal Rbyne, who had the job last year, and Harold Warstler, another Indifferent clubber obtained from Indianapolis last season. Rothrock is being groomed for the hot corner to succeed Otis Miller, a fair hitter, who likely will be 1 kept In a utility role. Few Held Over. Teamed with Rye and Van Camp in a prospective outfield is Earl Webb, the only regular of last sea^ son to club over .300. Tom Oliver and Russell Scarritt, who hit .293 arid .289, respectively, are the other holdovers. Wlnsett and McSwain from the Southern and John Lucas, who hit .347 ,for McCoqk, Nebr., complete the outfield list Collins fwds the club well fortified behind the plate, with Charles Berry, Muddy Ruel and Ed Connolly ready to divide the chores. Berry, a hard-hitting backstop, will head the catching corps. FIGHT RESULTS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS--Ray Tramblie, Rockford.-IU., knocked out Joe Feldman, Chicago (4). .
