And what do you suppose • Tilden plans to do on his birthday? Why he'll be stepping off a train in New York, getting ready for an exhibi lion match on Feb. 17.

The greatest •tennis pluycr in Ihc aycrs and 'gamblers. It docs seem that remarks like cirs, without any substantial proof, nothing more thnn food for might/ to amateur athletes. A lot of loose talk about tin horn amblers offering "big" money to ollcge players for tossing a game s nothing more than n come-on to bunch of swell kids who up to this imc never gave it a single thought. The alleged "fixed" game be- wccn Brooklyn College and Akron Inlvcrslty was never played. No one las ever proved that a college game vas lost because of some shady deal, Until this is proved in court per- iaps those "Individuals who like o talk" should remain quiet. The Big 10 Conference has made ,he most sensible move. A new rule n this -important Mid-West loop orders nil'.'of its members to play their basketball games on college campuses'. after this season. A lot of other college conferences no doubt will follow the Big 10 lead. High officials in'the various college conferences across the country arc in daily contact with the college athletes. They know their feelings, the desires and the honesty of stich fellows. Instead of loose talk, that apparently is doing more harm than good, these fellows are going into action. It is men like the Big 10 officials that will always keep college sports 'above reproach.' 94 Exhibition Games Slated By American CHICAGO, Feb. 7 <UI>>—Base tans of the American Lcaisnc have plenty of chance and ball will time to pick out a favorite In the coming junior loop pennant race.
