WHORIC, Sports Editor \J: BITS HERE AND THEKE Glenn Cunningham, the Kansas miJer, requests track and field fans who attend indoor meets to "please retrain from smoking." He said that in his race at Madison Square Garden the smoke was a great handicap. "It hangs low over the track and first causes your eyes to burn, then there follows a tight feeling in your chest and you begin to cough," Cunningham said. Therefore the less smoke there is, the better the winning time will be" Tony Cnnzoneri, a shadow of the fighter who won and lost four world titles in the early 1930's, added a victory over Bobby Pacho of Los Angeles to his comeback record . . . Don Meade, ruled off the turf in Florida three years ago, probably \vill be reinstated as a jockey in New York . . . "Boxing is in a dirty mess now and I'll clean up as soon as possible," said John Kettehe, Michigan's new boxing commissioner . . . Babe Ruth signed as an instructor with the Ray L. Doan school of baseball in Jackson, Miss. Other instructors include Dizzy Dean, Burleigh Grimes, Gabby Street, Dick Kerr, Johnny Mostil and Red Ormsby Joe Louis "defend" his heavyweight title in Los Angeles this spring against ancient Jack Hoper. "We're warning you folks out in Californai to get to your seats real early for that one, "penned Henry Super, the United Press sports writer, who believes Jack won't no more than crawl through the ropes and he'll be unconscious . . . Crying babies, sleepless families, black eyes from home runs and charges that spectators peekad into bedroom windows all entered the question whether Philadelphia's two major league ball teams would be able to play night games next summer. Protests have been lodged by residents and the oity zoning board took under advisement the clubs' petition for permission to erect eight floodlight towers at the field . . . Among New York state animals, the bear, jumping mouse, chipmunk, woodchuck, skunk, raccoon and some bats hibernate during the winter . . . National Collegiate Athletic Association, National Intercollegiate Faction, Amateur Athletic Union and the Basketball Writers Association of New York are in the swing to attra.ct teams outstanding enough to lend "championship" prestige to their particular tournaments to name the national collegiate floor kings. It is not only possible but highly probable that some of the teams will compete in two or three of the eliminations.. . . Moose bones are being burned and studied in an unusual scientific investigation being made at the Maine cooperative wildlife research, demonstration and management unit supported by the American Wildlife Institute. The bones of well moose, killed by automobiles or trains, and the bones of sick moose are burned and analyzed to deterimne whether mineral 'deficiencies in diet caused illness in the ailing moose, i Otterbein's victoryless basketeers will enter the home stretch against Denison Saturday still seeking their HOW.'JOCK SEES PITTS GRID SITUATION :' .: Jock Sutherland, addressing Westmoreland Pitt Club at Latrobe Country Club the other night, painted a black football picture for the University o£ Pittsburgh. Speaking to the alumni that went on record as being 100 per cent back o£ him, the noted grid mentor said: "Just the other day I had a report on how many players we are going to have for spring practice and 1 doubt that we -will have a successful spring practice. We are going to have a pretty tough time. Things are happening rapidly and I don't know what more is going to happen. "We have scheduled nine games for next fall and how we are going to play them I don't know, A lot of people are going to leave the Stadium on Saturdays at 5 o'clock wondering what is happening and what is going to happen. We are going to leave the Stadium, those of us who go, very much discouraged "I can't find a ray of hope from anybody. 1 have not a nice thing to bring to this banquet." However, Dr. Sutherland made no direct reference to Pitt's affiliation with the Big Ten or to its new athletic policies. His remarks led the j alumni to believe that the person on the street probably knows more about what's going on at toe university than the amiable coach whose connection with the school is going to be shortlived. When Dr. H. A. McMurray o Greensburg, the. loastmaster, -opened the prog;am, he said: "We are being purged and are on our way to be in the Big Ten." Dr. Samuel H. Williams, Pitt's professor of biology and education and a former resident of Connellsville, referred to'Dr. Sutherland as "a great moulder of character" anc added: "1 am not so sure it will be as easy as in the past to develop character and ideals in our student, if the love for our great footbal teams is eliminated." And the longer reports come in from the Panther sports trenches, tbj more confusing the entire situation becomes. initial win Bowling on the Recreation alleys at Mount Pleasant, the fast stepping Varsiety Girls defeated West Newton lassies by a margin of 60 pins.

"If ·I am not seeded first I will quit the tournament." And the gracious concession of Miss Gracyn Wheeler, who had been seeded No. I to win the Carlton 'Winer tennis title, resulted ,in a change In the seedings so the French woman stayed in the meet " . . . A row between St. Louis hockey players and Wichita fans at an Amer- · ican Association game last week cost the league leading Flyers $450.91 and the services o£ their star de- fenseman, Gene Pusie, when the matter got before, a judge. Pusie, a Canadian, may be expelled from the league. . ..Bill Werber, third sacker, has become the. Athletics' first baseball holdout.. .
