The National Collegiate A.A., which does not start its championship play until March 21, has 11 spots open. Five of them will be filled by conference champions and six by teams selected "at large." The lineup for the National Invitation tournament, in which three first round games are scheduled Saturday' at New York's Madison Square Garden, is expected to be completed today with the selection of the 12th team. Already in the NCAA lineup are St. Louis, champion of the Missouri Valley: Kentucky, defending champion and winner of the Southeastern Conference- Texas Christian, which qualified last week to represent the Southwest Conference: Wyoming, best of the Skyline Conference after defeating Brigham Young; and West Texas, Border Conference dtleholder. The NIT selection committee Is finding it almost as difficult to pick the 12th team as naming all of the others. It wouldn't be surprising to see the NCAA diD into the NTT field for some of its "at large" representative, esneclallv in the Eas where Penn State (19-4) turned down an NIT feeler and said it would consider an NCAA bid. The usually high scoring Nittany Lions ended their season Saturday with a victory over Pittsburgh by the unusual score of 24-9. Nine of the 11 teams in the NIT turned in highly successful work last week. Dayton (24-3). Holy Cross (21-2), St. Bonavtnture (19 3), LaSalle (19-5), Western Ken tucky (24-4), TUfiiiesne St Louis (21-5), St. John's (21-3) and Seton Hall (25-2) didn't lose a game. ' But New York Univ. (16-7) lost twice to St; John's and Ford- ham after being selected and Louisville (21-5) bowed to Seton Hall.

Ky. (UP)- Ken tucky Coach Adolph Rupp sized up 'the narrow squeak his Wildcats had 'n the Southeastern Conference hasketball tournament and predicted they would have "plenty oi trouble" winning the NCAA tour nament for the second straight year. "We'll handle anyone our size I don't care who they are," opined the pilot of the nation's No. team. "But a big team, a team with a real big man, will give us p'enty of trouble." Rupp's gloomy observation seemed to be borne out by the Wildcats' 44-43 win over Louisiana State in the final round of the SEC tvUrnament in Louisville Saturday: Bob Pettit, LSU's six-foot nine- inch - pivotman, really gave the. Wildcats fits as he sank 25 points, mostly on tip-ins; and gave the rigers a 43-41 lead late in the fourth period. It was a final basket by Lou Isioropoulos, plus a long "freeze", that gave Kentucky the win and uarrowly averted an upset similar to the Wildcats' loss to VanderbCt in last year's final rouqd. retut s spree was a soDering though for the Wildcats, although rix-foot, five-inch Wildcat center diff Hagan emerged with a new tourney field goal record of 40. Rupp knows the Wildcats will have to face several good centers lust as big as Pettit in the NCAA nerhans West Virginia's Mark Workman and later Kansas' Clyde Lovellette. Although Kentucky has rolled up 28 wins, the last 22 in a row. in 30 games, its starting line up averages only six feet, two. Such a height problem was hard ly foreseen by -"Baron" Rupp at the beginning of this season. For then he still had' seven-foot all American Bill Spivey. However, Spivey missed a few games with a leg injury. Yesterday word came that Spiv ey has been barred permanently by the Kentucky Athletic Board, which announced It believes that 'Spivey was implicated in a conspiracy to fix Kentucky basketball qames during the 1950-51 season." But, in addition to 'his height problem, Rupp pointed out that in juries held the Wildoats back in the LSU game., "The people out there in the stands didn't know it, because we had tried to keep it quiet," said Rupp. "But our sixth man, Shelby Linville, had a broken toe and still I had to use him in spots. "Hagan had his leg in ice all afternoon before the game and he played with a puffed up knee Frank Ramsey had two bad ankles and we'd just gotten Skippy Whit- aker out of the infirmary the day before. We were awfully lucky lo beat them.' However, Rupp wasn't trying to run down his team. 'I think this is a remarkable team," he declared "Seven kids have had to play the whole thing for us Hagan, Ramsey, Whitaker, Tsioropoulos; Linville, Bobby Wat son and Bill Evans. We're not very deep with just seven kids, but they can shoot." v SECRETS OF CHARM bv JOHN RQBERI POWERS THE DOTHAN EAGLE, Monday, March 3, 1932 Jrtnf.DllltC ' 4 Jrtnf.pilltC ' Follow fashion and you're sure to be happier and even healthier!

Eleclricily Output Gains In Florida JACKSONVILLE, (UP) Flori da plants generated 11 per cent more electricity last year than in 1950, and in any three months of last year more electricity was generated than in the entire year of 1940. Production of more electricity to meet the demands of growth was made possible by. increased plant capacity. This capacity stood ai 1,130,452 kilowatts on Jan. 1 of last year, and further expansion took place during the year, the State Chamber of Commerce reported today. Electric production In Florida in 1951 totaled more than six billion kilowatt-hours. This week's busi ress review of the Chambers' shows 1940 production was about one-fifth this amount. Electricity generated by Florida industrial establishments for their own use, amounted to more than 829,000,000 kilowatt-hours of the 1951 volume. This total was eight per cent above the 1950 production.

Rabbi Arthur J. Lelvbeld of New York, national director of the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation, spoke at ceremonies formally opening a $145,000 building at the University of Alabama. The dedication was held during the annual meeting of Alabama B'nai B'rith members. "Ignoring religion is no solution to the problem, nor is teaching religion in a watered-down manner the answer," Lelvbeld said. He urged a "multi-sectarianism" in which each religion would be free to teach its own beliefs. William P. Bloom, Tuscaloosa merchant, was awarded a certificate of merit by Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity for outstanding community service. Louis Pizitz, Birmingham, leader in the building program, was presented a gold key by the Hillel Foundation. Mose Temerson, Tuscaloosa, was elected state B'nai B'rith president, succeeding Dr. Nathan Gilbert, Florence. Other officers named were George Haiman, Mobile, first vice president; Stanley Rosenbaum, Florence, second vice president; Abe Nedoss, Tuscaloosa, secretary; and W. Sher, Birmingham, treasurer. bodice, and to gain these effects any woman must wear a well-fitted foundation. In Fashion's Favor "Consequently, many women who never before had their foun-' dations fitted will find out, for the first time, how important such a fitting is. And their health will: benefit. A woman's health is re-j lated to her posture, muscle con- tour and weight distribution. All three of these important health! factors are protected and im-! proved by the proper support. I "In spite of all urgings, the av erage woman does not get suffi-j cicnt exercise to keep her muscles properly toned. A correctly fitted foundation acts as a supplementary muscle. A girdle supports the muscles of the abdomen, thus relieving the burden on the spine. A bra protects the bosom from undue muscle and tissue strain. Both supports will act as a subc supports will act as a subconscious prod to better posture and will also constrain the flesh." As to youth and controls, DrJ Miller had this to say: "The ac tive youngster fitted with the right : supports will have fewer figure' problems later in life. She needs! a foundation to avert muscle strain, to brace the spine and to monitor her posture. Fitted for Health "No woman need have any fear of becoming too dependent on foundations for figure beauty unless she gets no exercise, eats improperly, never makes an effort to stand correctly and does; not take the trouble to have her1 foundations fitted for health as well as beauty. Constricting or sagging garments do nothing for the figure faults and health hazards lollow that kind of neglect. "When fashion forces more women to have their foundations expertly fitted, it's a health plus. The health factor in foundations always depends on an expert fit," Dr. Miller concluded. 0 MARTINgj LAST TIMES TODAY I. ,9 i - mmnm v 1 1 tmrMt tarring GARY COOPER Plus News and Cartoon!
