Take tho headache of Manager Bob Douglas of the Renaissance Big Five. How many players doe Boh stand to lose if the draft steps In and takes over the colored team? Bob recently signed William "Dolly" King to a three - year contract, the longest he has ever given a player, and at a fat salary, PROVIDED, Uncle Sam doesn't step In and break up Dolly's pro career as a Douglaaman. Then there is Pop Gates, one of the best that ever hit the? hardwoods; Puggy Bell, another crack New Yorker : who would be hard to replace and right on down the line. Bob Is In no easy spot, with the summer season coming on and the demand for experienced big i time basketeers growing greater each year. The ' draft could just about wipe the Rens off the map, as far as their stars are concerned. Consequently. Bob Is at a loss, just what course to pursue until the finals in this first draft are called and the new draft numbers issued. STARS - NEWA IN EVEN BREAK Galaxy Of Sepia Cinder Stars N.C.A.A.
