The Kansas Jayhawks. the only Big Seven basketball team showing less than ail even break in the won^ lost column, can get In step with the Conference Names Confusing? They Are a Wee Bit Misleading .silly reason, people in other parts of | the country seem to lie confused ] about the names of athletic comer-! cures in the Rocky Mountain n-sion. Seems like evcrylime sjwrt.s win- | ers and fans In the east talk arinut Ihe main conference out here they calf it the "Rocky Mmuitain Con-1 ference." j Now, that's not i-iisht. The big conference is the "SkyliiA Six." The i members are Utah. Wyoming. Col- r orado A and M, Denver, Utah Slate and Brigham Voting. Tlie "Skyline Six" used to be the "Bin Seven." That is. until 1018. when Colorado University left the "Big Seven" to join the -Big six," which then was composed of Oklahoma. Kansas state, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa State. The "Big Seven" then became the "Big Six," of course, and the "Big Six" became the "Big Seven." However, some officials thought, there wa.s a possibility of a misunderstanding, although a .slight one. So, the popular name of the "Big Six" (old "nig Seven") was changed to "Skyline six" to avoid contusion with the old "Rig six. 1 The Name Is Clear There is a "Rocky Mountain Conference." but it's another league entirely. Thus conference includes Colorado College. Montana Stale Colorado state. Western state, Colorado Mines and Idaho state. The Reeky Mountain setup is perfectly clear to the fans out here. But they do get a little muddled, sometimes, over the names of the conferences just of here. For instance, the formal name of he "Big Seven" (old "Big Six") is lie "Missouri Valley Intercollegiate '< Athletic Association." But It's not' he league that is commonly known : as the "Missouri Valley." / The leasuic that everybody calls tlie ••Missouri Valley" was marie up until recently of Tuba, Oklahoma A and M.. St. Louis. Drake and Wichita. But then they took in De- ' troll and Bradley, which are a long rest of the conference tonight. The Jayhawks play Holy Cross in Boston. A Kansas victory would give them a 3-3 mark. In addition to the Kansas game tonight Missouri takes on Wisconsin at Columbia and Idaho plays Iowa state at Ames. Iowa. So, if you wanted to you couldn't call it the Valley" any )nore. Incidentally, while we're on the subject or confereiiees, tvhen does (he "Big Nine" (old "Big Ten") become the "Bis Ten" „,.„!„. Mayl)i , p if they're going to have member* coins In and out all the time, (hey ouaht to adopt a single name, like the "Western Conference." That wouldn't be accurate, •though, became the teams really aren't ill the LADY IN LUCK _ Pallie! Jean Bell has every right to be! pleaded with herself.
