Celebration? I should . say so! It seemed like everyone was 5umpi7ig in the pool with their 'jclotht-s on,. including the Harvard .coach, Hal Ulen. * · » ' * * ·' Earlier the same night Larry Kelley and the Yale basketball team proved to be too much for -Harvard. KeHey looks a lot bigger pn a basketball court than he does 'on a football field. He takes quite a ridnig from the crowd every game, especially when he misses several shots in a row. ·_ However, the general public isn't nearly so wild over basketball £5 in the mid-west. Possibly this can bis accounted for by the fact 'that hockey is the main winter 'sport in all oE the larger schools. It is rather interesting to note that four out of the five boys on ihs freshman basketball team are ,'midwesterners. j Harvard and Yale have a unique system of awarding letters. Only players who get into the Harvard- yale contest in any sport get letters. For this reason there are al- Avays many substitutes, but in close contests some deserving players are bound to be left out. ··· Needless to say I still follow the Mohawks closely in the Globe- Gazette -but their contests are his- jory by the time I get the news, since it takes three days lor the }Daper to reach Cambridge.

DENVER, (#)--The west held the numerical, edge -- but the southwest still had favorite No. 1-as eight crack teams prepared for the quarterfinals of the National A. A. U. basketball tournament. Three of the eight clubs represent the Hocky Mountain section and two bear California allegiance, compared with one each from the cast, midwest and southwest. No team west of Kansas has won the national championship since the Los Angeles Athletic club triumphed in 1319. The Bartlesvillc, Okla., Oilers, chief favorite, and all other well- backed clubs still are in there for the last battles--the pick o£ the 45 teams that started the marathon Sunday. Seven of the eight quarlerfinal- ists are seeded. Only one is a college team -- the colorful, long shooting Long Island university outfit. The collegians from Brooklyn's sidewalks have the chance of recording the only out-and-out upse of the four game program--if they can beat the powerful Denver Safeways in the opening contest. The Kansas City Trails and the Denver K. C. Life meet in the second game. Hollywood's Olympic stars will play Colorado Springs Antlers and Bartlesvillc will tangle with Oakland Golden State in the final battle. All eight teams won their third round contests by four points 01 better.

DES MOINES --Newton high school's Redbirds came through with a rush in the last quarter Thursday, to shock Davenport's Blue Devils with a 33 to 30 vic- .ory, after the river city team hac ed most of the way. Davenport had led by five points both at the halt and as the :hird quarter closed, setting the pace at 14 to 0 and 20 to 15. ^ East Wins Opener. Waterloo East had little trouble n disposing ot Blencoe, its firs round opponent, 30 to 19, in th opening game of the . state higl s c h o o l basketball tournamen Thursday in the Drake fieldhouse Bill Close started the winner, out in the opening period.with a pair of .buckets in succession an with its man for man defensi holding its rivals at bay, Waterloi East led at'the end of the quarter 8 to 0. Blencoe rallied in the secon period to outscore East 5 to 4 bu the Waterloo Trojans went to res at the half time with a 12 to . margin. Rolfe Wins 28lh. Rl Holfe ran its victory string to 26 with a 29 to 19 decision over Centerville in the second morning game. Al Budolfson, ace forward, scored 14 points for Rolfe. Rolfe's fast break outspceded Ccntervillc's slower defense from the start. The winners took a 7 to 4 lead in the opening quarter behind Budolfson's tip shots. Centervillc was too busy trying to halt Rolte's ace scorer in the second period to bother with its offense and the northwest favorites took a 14 to G margin with them at the half. In the third quarter Centervillc rallied but not long enough and Rolfe started playing airtight ball against giant Noble Ferren and his mates. Cut Down Margin. Centerville, however, managed to cut the margin down to 18 to 13 before the final period started. Rolfe's dazzling otfense swept the losers back on their heels again midway in'the fourth quarter with Budolfson climaxing his brilliant game by dribbling the entire length of the floor to score before he was replaced by a substitute. Both Budolfson and Keith Rickard, six foot, 200 pound center, starred for Rolfc. Ferren, Centerville's husky, played ; great game for Centerville but the big boy was jittery and missed frequent short shots. Diz Dean May Mean Flag or Not for Team 'ai'ds Stand Out as Best Bet With Dean,'Poor Squad Without. NEW YORK, (/P)--Depending, o£ course, on whether the "Dizzy One" makes it sticlc, the abdiea- ion of the great Jerome Herman 5ean from the St. Louis Cardinals will just about spell [lowers and soft music for the 1937 pennant hopes of the Gas House gang. With Dizzy fogging 'em in, the :ards stand out as a potential onc- :wo shot in the coming National .eague race. If he continues his loldout and goes on with his threat to retire this year, the strengthened Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, and New York's defending pennant-holders all may.pass the Dean-less outfit. You Can Get Odds. Although you can still get odds that Dizzy will be in there opening day, the situation, if it developed, would be without parallel. Playsrs of other eras, such as the Giants' Ed Koush and the Cubs Johnny Kline, extended holdouts through entire seasons, but never has any one recalcitrant meant a pennant. As a potential 25-game winner, Dean would bolster any club. With the Cards, who have none too many · first-rate hurlers, his absence would leave Lon Warnekc, obtained from the Cubs over the winter, as the only seasoned hurler. Such - a development w o u l d hardly leave the "feared" gas house gang, minus its ace, holding the same hand with the Cubs, Pirates and Giants ill the season's pen- ant poker game. 550,000 or No Play. Dean wants $50,000, says he'l quit the game it he doesn't get it. For any player that's a lot of money; for a pitcher it's twice as much. Never in all baseball history has a hurler received ever close to that sum. Although the great one laughs, at the club's 522,500 oHer, and the Cards claim they certainly won' meet his demands, the wholi thing is being talked about in baseball circles with the "tongue in-cheek" idea. The holdout bally hoo begun in the Babe Ruth er with the Yankees, is leading mos observers to believe the Deal thing will be ironed out in th week's wash, and that Dizzy and the gas house gang bosses are do ing it either (1) to hear themselves threaten each other, or (2 to get the headlines the squawl publicity naturally brings. FormerFlinger to Be Umps for Minot Loop ORLANDO, Fla.--Ed Hommel, once potent pitcher of the Athletics, visited the Washington Senators' training camp Thursday and said he might be back in the big leagues next year--as an xim- pirc. Rommel will call balls and strikes this season in the International league.

PETERSBURG, Fla., (/P) --Manager Joe McCarthy of the New York Yanlcees announced Thursday that Lou Gehrig, the mighty slugger, had come to terms with the club and will leave New York immediately for the training camp here. Terms of the contract were not divulged. OLIVER CAGERS GET PRO STARS Terrible Swedes, Trotter Booked to Play Tussle at Charles City. CHARLES CITY--The ' Olive Athletic association will stage vir tually a "traveling basketba! championship" game here April 2 when Olson's Terrible Swede meet the Original Globe-Trolter on the Manual Arts court.

O ' D E L L FIGHT TICKETS niNGSIDE §1.12 United Clear Store or 3.1 Armory after 5 p. m. Thursday Still Mile King NEW YORK, (UP)--Glenn Cunningham of Kansas ran the second fastest indoor mile ever recorded when he won the Columbian mile for the fifth straight year in the eighteenth annual Knights oC Columbus track and field meet Wednesday night before a capacity crowd of 10,000 in Madison Square Garden. Cunningham traveled the distance in 4:08.7, three-tenths of a second slower than the record set by him in this same event in 1931. KANSAS FLYER NEARS RECORD Through? Cunningham Jus Getting Started Again at Middle Distance. N E W Y O R K , (/P) -- A nev streamlined model of the Kansa 'Iyer- was roaring west Thursday 31enn Cunningham was startin, on a second career. Just when the boys were read; to sidetrack the old flyer to th roundhouse, he changed the: mind by running the classic Columbian mile in the Knights of lolumbus games Wednesday night in 4 minutes, 8.7 seconds. That was only three tenths of a second slower than his own world ndoor record, and the fourth fastest mile ever to win a race, indoors or out. Cunningham himself bettered it .wice, and new Zealand's Jack Lovelock bettered it the other time. "Now what do you say to that rumor you're going to quit?" a reporter asked when Cunningham came into the dressing room Wednesday night. "Say I'm just starting all over again," replied Cunningham. Still weak from a recent attack ot the f l u , Cunningham outlined a plan for lour more races in the next two weeks, and spent the rest of his breath praising his fellow Kansan and greatest rival, Archie San Romani, who ran the fastest race o£ his career and finished second. Other features of the K. of C games, climax of the eastern indoor season, were Don Lash's 9:00.9 victory in the two mile run, Eddie O'Brien's second straight triumph in the Casey COO in 1:12.8, Dartmouth Jack Donovan's conquest of Sam Allen o£ Oklahoma Baptist in the 60-yard hurdles, and Eulace Peacock's victory over Ben Johnson of Columbia, I.C.-4A champion, in the BO yard dash. Miller to Get Favored Post With Jumpers )orothy Paget's Veteran to Lead Entry List at 99th Grand National Run. A1NTREE, England, (/P) -- In pile of all evidence to the con- rary, the experts were pretty well agreed Thursday that Golden filler would go to the post as a light favorite in the betting in Friday's ninety-ninth running o£ he Grand National steeplechase. Although tips on "sure things" vere heard from end to end of he famous course, and all over Sngland, for that matter, the 'Miller," still regarded as the best steeplechaser in the business in spite of the terrific kicking around ic has given his backers in the ast two years, loomed as the No. 1 choice. The final choice in the betting n-obably will be made after the ast callover in London, with Ego ind Royal Mail, the recent favor- le, still getting plenty of attention, but Dorothy Paget's 10 year old jumper having the heaviest piny. This, despite the fact the track will be heavy from recent storms, and the "Miller" will be carrying 175 pounds over four and a half miles of slippery jumping. Most of the 33 horses in the field were arriving or enroule Thursday as a crowd of half a million or more, including King George and Queen Elizabeth, began gathering for the opening of the Aintree meet. TALL BOYS GET NEW STRATEGIC JOBS ON COURT ^ules Committee T a k e s Center Jump Out, Lets Post Penalty Go. CHICAGO, (fl 3 )--The basketball caching fraternity was busy Thursday plotting new strategic maneuvers for tall boys. The national rules committee ormally removed the center jump rom the game except at the start f periods, after an all tlay tussle Veclnesday with recommendations or changes in the code. The modi- icalion removed nil but a small Jart of the premium on a tower- ng player's ability to control the all at center. The revision was adopted for a. one year trial, and was the only mportant change made. For a year ii least, the ball will be put into )lay from out oE bounds by the 'earn last scored upon, with tho ikely effect that an already fast- hrilling game, will become faster ind more thrilling. The move was made after three years o£ cxperi- nent by the southern division of he Pacific Coast conference. Any hope that reduction of the exceptionally tall player's effec- iveness at center through the elimination of the jump might be compensated through a revision oE the "three-second" rule, failed to naterializcl The committee rejected a recommendation that a player be per- mited to remain indefinitely, in the outer half of the free throw circle without possession of the jail, which would have made possible a modification of the "pivot" or "bucket" play, in which tall players used to plant themselves in the area to convert high passes into shots. County Junior Cage Squads in Tourney LAKE MILLS -- A Winnebagi county junior high school basket ball tournament will be playcc here Tuesday and Wednesday af ter school. The local junior team coached by Willy A n d e r s o n opened its season here Wednesda; with Thompson.
