Smith of the National Collegiate Athletic association issued an invitation Friday to the national sports writers to assist the NCAA in checking gambling on college athletic events. The plea followed by only four! days the breaking of the Brooklyn college. basketball "scandal" in which five Brooklyn players admitted accepting money to "fix" a scheduled game with Akron college. It was'also the first official action of Dr. Smith, Tulane athletic director, who "was named head of the NCAA last month. "I am sure that this assistance is in a large sense already being extended," Dr. Smith said, "as I know that the press is just as hopeful as are we of the colleges this this evil menace may soon be stamped out. Few newspapers have ever quoted gamblers odds on college- sports, but I wish to make this plea to those that do that this practice be discontinued in the .interest of sports. "No one appreciates more than $hat the public feels that its guardianship of sports, and particularly amateur athletics, is to a large extent in the hands of the nation's sports writers. From an institutional trusteeshio, of course, we o£ the National Collegiate Athletic association are charged with a definite responsibility but the average fan who loves sports looks AP Ne WE features Lexington, Ky. -- A master in the art of suffering through every basketball play is Adolph Rupp, astute head man of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. Rupp can bounce, bob,'twist, rave, faint and die with' any coach in the business. He can pass out cold when the | other team takes the lead and he can pull as much hair per | handfull out of his already thinned head as the next cage coach. j He suffers the next thing to heart failure once or twice a minute for 40 minutes of any garnet ' The average basketball fan who roots and toots as his favorite team maneuvers up and down the floor in a nip- and-tuck game has no idea of the agon a coach like Rupp goes through. One enterprising photographer didn't, either, until he planted himself beside the Wildcat mentor at a recent game. His camera caught the whole pitiful story.

Pirate Prexy Says Baseball Is of Value By JACK CUDDY New York, (U.R)--As the major league moguls went into their momentous meetings at the New Yorker Friday, less than 24 hours after passage of the work-or-jail bill by the house of representatives, a reporter asked Bill Benswanger of the Pittsburgh Pirates for his reactions to the passage. Diminutive, bespectacled Benswanger--president of a club operating in one of the nation's busiest war-production areas--replied: "If. the bill now passes the senate, it might change the'atti- tude of some of the players, It might cause them to give up baseball, this season, fearful that the public would disapprove of their playing while other men were being shifted into war work. I am referring, of course, to 4-F and dischargee players who will have been rejected a 2nd time for armed service. TO DECIDE ON GAME'S FUTURE MoguR Will Pass on New Joint Agreement By LEO H. PETERSEN Vnit«d Press Sports Editor Mew York--National ana 1 Amor- owners' were to what may 'I hope that the players left to us do not take this attitude, because there's no reason for it until baseball has been declared a nonessential industry--an eventuality which I do not forsee. In my opinion there's no longer any question of baseball's place in the war effort. The public has settled that by its enthusiastic support. Before the 1942 season, I was extremely dubious about continuing the game, personally, I thought the clean, entertaining pastime should continue; but I knew I was probably prejudiced because I was an owner who had something to sell, and because I was a red- hot fan. How would the public react? How would the servicemen and war workers take it? Well-they took it big." Anyone seeking proof of baseball's wartime value can find it in'the production center of Pittsburgh, Benswanger declared. Pirate attendance increased robustly during the past 2 seasons, he said, as the public displayed its approval. Workers got a healthy kick out of the game, without ican league club summoned Friday _ _ become the most momentous meetings in baseball history. Convening in separate sessions, the leagues were to decide whether to operate in 1945 and to ratify a new major league agreement under which the successor to' the late Keriesaw Mountain Landls, baseball's first commissioner, will serve. There appeared no doubt but what the clubs owners will decide to open as usual training camps--in scheduled to begin operating in another 6 weeks. Should 'work or fight" manpower legislation drain the game of its 4-F's and other players between 18-45, it probably will be forced to close shop before a 4th wartime season can be completed. S i m i l a r legislation forced the majors to curtail their 1918 season during World war 1. A poll of club owners indicated that all of them were convinced that there will be enough players to go around to start the season, at with spring the north-- causing absenteeism. Servicemen on furlough were entertained, and reports of .play were well received by fighting men overseas, judging by the hundreds o£ appreciative letters sent the club. -.Benswanger said he believed that the public had expressed the same approval of the game in most other major league cities, and for that reason the sport should continue. He felt sure that the owners would vote to open the season, during the current meetings, and he predicted that the '45 campaign would be played successfully, "if too many players don't take the wrong attitude and desert the game after passage of the work-or-jail bill." They also were hopeful that favorable war developments may ease the m a n p o w e r -situation. Ford Frlck, president of the National league, and Clark Griffith, owner of the Washington Senators, will report on their conferences in Washington with selective service director Lewis B. Hershey and Manpower" Commis* sioner Paul McNutt. "It then will be up to the club owners to decide whether to open," Frick, speaking only for the National league said. Griffith previously has told the United Press that on the basis of the conferences he was sure the game will continue, although he said that manpower legislation could change the picture. The question of operating was the paramount issue although the meetings were called to act on the new agreement, drawn up by a 10-man committee appointed at the December- baseball meetings. Both circuits are expected to accept the game's new code and then formally adopt it at a joint meeting Saturday. Whether an Immediate succes*- sor to Landis is chosen may hinge on what the new major league agreement calls for. there has been some talk that it will'curtail Irish-DePaui Contest Tops Non-Conference Cage Slate "No.' No!

Under Coach Rupp, the rifle-eyed 1940-41 quintet 'in 25 games set the highest average, 47 ; points a tilt, but the current club of 4-F's and freshmen, toppling some of the nation's best teams, threatens to surpass that mark. A perennial power in the Southeastern conference with 7 league titles in 14 years, the Wildcats once captured 45 straight conference encounters over a 5-year period. During another streak overlapping 2 seasons, Kentucky won 24 consecutive games from league and non-conference foes. TO DECIDE ON PLAYERS' FATE Grand Jury Begins Examining Witnesses New York, (U.R) -- The first of what probably will be a long line of witnesses was scheduled to appear before the Kings county (Brooklyn) grand jury Friday to assist in the investigation of gambling on collegiate'basketball. The investigation, ordered by Judge Samuel S. Leibowitz of Brooklyn, followed the disclosure that 5 Brooklyn college players had accepted a bribe to throw a game against Akron university at Boston. The game was cancelled when the plot .was revealed. The jury, acting with the haste requested by Judge Lcibowitz, returned indictments against 2 Brooklyn gamblers whom the boys identified as the men who offered them money to throw the game and discussed the possibilities of throwing a future game against St. Francis college of Brooklyn at Madison Square Gar- the powers held by Landis, a move that appeared certain of meeting opposition from some of the dab owners. It also has been reported that the new «ode stipulates that the commissioner must receive a ?.',ths vote of the 16 clubs. Such a requirement may block Frick's election for he was said to be assured of only 9 votes. It was generally believed, however, that a commissioner would be chosen before the meeting adjourns. Of- course, should the majors vote not to open--the chances are remote--there would be no need to elect a commissioner at this time. Those advocating immediate action hoped that the basketball gambling expose would gain them support. Some baseball men held, however, that the temporary 3 man commission ruling the game --Frick, President William Harridge of the American league'and Leslie O'Connor, Landis' former 2713 | 22.

Chicago, (U.R) -- The St. Louis Browns were set down on 2 counts Friday in decisions handed down by Leslie M.'O'Connor, chairman of the 3-man major league advisory council, who sharply reprimanded the American league champions for violation of the major league agreement. In his first written edicts since assuming the council chairmanship, O'Connor denied a claim by Pitcher Louis (Bobo) Newsom against the Browns for an allegedly promised $1,500 bonus, and also directed the St. Louis club to reimburse Tom Hafey the month's salary he lost while being shnntcd from thr Browns to Washington to Oakland. O'Connor! former secretary- treasurer to the late Commissioner Kenesaw M. Landis, sharply rebuked the St. Louis management and Newsom for entering into a verbal agreement in direct violation of the majpr league pact, which states ."the making of any agreement between a club and a player not embodied in the contract shall subject both parties to discipline by the commissioner." President Don L. Barnes of the Browns and Newsom had verbally agreed at the time Newsom was transferred to St. Louis from Brooklyn in 1943 that the burly, right-handed pitching star would receive a §1,500 bonus if he performed creditably for the Bro'wns. Noting that there "has been a regrettable persistence of clubs and' players" to enter into such agreements, O'Connor also de- den. The men indicted, Harvey Stemmer and Henry R o s e n , both of B r o o k l y n , were held in $25,000 bail on Wednesday. Stemmer's bail was reduced to $10,000 and he was released when that amount was posted Thursday. Meanwhile Brooklyn c o l l e g e took its own action against the 5 players. The faculty-student committee on athletics voted to bar the players from all further intercollegiate athletic competition at the school. The recommendation was sent to college president Harry D. Gideonsc who was expected to decide Friday whether or not the players would be expelled. clslons in such cases "will include a fine of $500 for a major league club's violation of the rules and contract terms, $250 for a. minor league dab , . . and $100 for a player." In further reprimanding the American league titleholders and Newsom, O'Connor said "the convent, rule and notice are printed in the contract to direct attention as forcefully as possible to the necessity of stating all the terms of the contract and not leaving anything to confidential 'side agreements' . . . there is no more essential rule and none which should (By The Associated Press) EAST Bales 6S; Tnfts 58 (overtime).

The meeting; of the 2 Catholic schools, both currently averaging 61 points a game, brings together Z of the highest scoring combinations in this section. DePanl's smashing offensive, which has annexed 13 victories in 14 tries, is carried by Center George Mikan-who has averaged Zl points per e--while Notre Dame's point- mad pace is set by Rookie Center Johnny Boryla (15-point average) and Forward Johnny Dee (13- point average). Notre Dame's speed, which has carried the Irish to 10 victories in 13 games against the toughest competition in the midlands, is expected to hand DePaul its severest challenge to date. The twinbill will be opened by Purdue and Northwestern, both scrapping for a first division Big Ten berth. Purdue has split even in 8 conference games while Northwestern--featuring the conference's leading scorer, Max Morris--has won 2 out of 6 games.
