After playing 4 consecutive out-of-town contests, the Cardinal and Black returns to the* ' ~ Roosevelt court Friday night x meet Charles City. Saturday night the Mohawks play at Austin, and will -seek to avenge an early-season defeat at the hands of .the Packers. KGLO \vill broadcast a play-by-play account of the Austin encounter, with Merritt Milligan at the mike. The Mohawks will go into Fri- day's'Comet ganie as the favorite, despite the fact that Charles City won the first game of the series at Charles City, 34-30. Coach Bud Siller's' lads will have the advantage of playing on the home floor. The squad feels it can reverse the tables, although the Comets are out to make it 2 in a row. The largest crowd of the season is' expected to be on hand for the Friday-night game. With that end in view, it has been announced that the : doors will be opened 15 minutes earlier than usual -- at 6:15 o'clock. Additional seating space will also be available.

MACARTHUR Proposes Collegiate Czar to Check Gambling Lawrence, K a n s . , Iff)--Phog Allen, who was yelling "fire, lire,' months ago w h e n others couldn't even see smoke in basketball betting, wants Gen. Douglas MacArthur to clean up the gambling evil in college as soon as he finishes cleaning up the Japs. The Kansas coach, for years a colleague of the late Dr. James A. Naismith, inventor of the game says he wouldn't even consider the post for himself. "I'm not after any job; I've got one," shot back the Proper when -ike to fill the sports ciar he he job of collegiate proposes. ·I feel highly honored if the college presidents would offer me the .job," Prog added, "but I wouldn't accept it in any way, shape or form. But I know what's wrong and I haven't been afraid to speak out against it when the NCAA wouldn't do it. "It will take a great organizer sr.d General MacArthur, who always has been a great sports fan, would be' the man to give collegiate sports the thorough renovating it needs. There are plenty more things he could look into such as college baseball coaches acting as scouts for big league teams, sub rosa payments to athletes, and other evils." Phoir predicted !as,t fall that an incident would occur such as the one which brought indictment Wednesday of 2 men in connection with the alleged bribing- 5 Brooklyn basketball players. At that time he said basketball games had been thrown in Madison Square garden and that if a czar wasn't-appointed to ferret out the p l a y e r s responsible, "things are going to break open In a scandal that wilt stink to high heaven." "A forceful personality such as MacArthur, could police the intercollegiate sports program 'which has gotten clear out of · hand," [ Allen argues.

Grand Jury to Continue Investigation By CAM, LUNDQUIST New York, ' (U.PJ--The Kings county (Brooklyn) grand jury continued its investigation of gambling in connection with collegiate basketball Thursday amidst demands that the game be returned to college gymnasiums. In Washington, Rep. Donald L. O'Toole of Brooklyn, referring to the bribe money offered by professional gamblers and accepted by 5 Brooklyn college basketball players to throw a game against Akron university at Boston, said the incident "smells to high heaven." "But," O'Toole added, "they ought to put the game back in the college gymnasium, or, if they're going to play for professionals, pay the boys salaries. It's a temptation to kids when they see big crowds paying big prices for games staged by professional'pro- moters." Meanwhile the state legislature at Albany .acted to bring bribe giving to amateur athletes under the felony statutes. Those events, precipitated by the signed confessions of the 5 players that they had accepted money to throw the game against Akron university scheduled a I Boston Wednesday night, but later cancelled, rocked the college sports world with iis first major gambling disgrace. The grand jury Wednesday indicted 3 men, one as yet unnamed on charges of conspiracy- to cheal and defraud. Judge Samuel S Leibowitz ordered the jury ex- iended one month in order to complete ils inquiry and set Feb. i 13 for the trial of Harvey stem- mer and Henry Rosen, the 2 men named in the indictments. The 3rd man, known only as "Danny," has not yet been apprehended and the indictment was returned in the name of "John Doe," · Leibowilz, 1 formerly a famous criminal attorney, complimented the jury on its speedy action and indicated that he would allow more than a month's extension if ''Proved necessary. He asked that the jury "seek out any evidence of crime in connection with p a s games," . "Don't go after (he small fry,' he-told the members. "It's the big fellows we wantL" At Albany a bill was introduced in the state legislature which would amend the penal law to make amateur athletes liable to extreme penalties for accepting bnbes. It urged legislation imposing fines up to 510,000 and imprisonment from one to 5 years on any amateur who acceptec money or any article of value to throw a game. The bill also asks the imposition of similar penalties on any party (gambler) who seeks to bribe an amateur athlete. Legislation already, : has been enacted regarding professional athletes The Brooklyn players, Capt. Bob teder, Buddy Barnett, Larry Pearlstem, Stanley Simon and Jerry Green, have not been charged with any offense and wil be used as material witnesses a the trial. The 2 gamblers held in 525,000 bail. The fate of the 5 players maj be established Thursday so far a Brooklyn college is concerned Al ready barred from further par ticipation on the team, the athletes will hear from a faculty-studen athletic committee meeting re gnrding expulsion from school I was indicated that all would b expelled. The case was brought to ligh by accident. New York police hac been watching Hosen in regard t suspicions that he had been re cewing stolen property from teen age boys.

Landis nor create very much news, President William Harridge o£ the American league said Thursday. "I'll be very much surprised if we name a commissioner at the meeting," Harridge said as he boarded a New York-bound train with his 3-man staff. "Consideration of the new major league agreement' and discussion of details of the all-star game are the only mailers on (he agenda although the owners, by unani- The boys admitted that they al ready had received 51,000 of promised $3,000 to throw th game.

They said, however, tha they had decided against throwin that same and also the Akron game and were on their way to Rosen's home to return the mone when they were picked up fo i questioning. t Meanwhile police said the' would not relax their vigilanc' against gamblers at M a d i so n Square Garden and other sports arenas.
