Mississippi College meets Howard and Loyola will play Southwestern in the semi-finals tonight, with the final game Saturday night. Southwestern opened the tournament yesterday afternoon with a whirlwind finish over Birmingham-Southern. The Birmingham Panthers were the underdogs in the dope but fought ferociously, leading the' Lynx at the half, only to be nosed out in a final rush. Loyola was off to a slow start against Mercer, but piled up a large lead in the second half, and breezed .to victory. Howard swamped Millsaps in the first half of last night's opening game, and the Majors were unable to overtake the lead despite a strong finish. In the most exciting game of the day. Mississippi College, with Newsom leading the way. drew away from Chattanooga in the final minutes of play to emerge victorious by ' margin of two field goals in a game that saw the lead change several times. Howard, seeded along with South-western. had to stave off a last half rally to tarn back the Majors. The Majors trailing by 11 points at the rest period, fought gamely in the final period but could cut only four points from Howard's advantage.

Two things can happen, and the future will do the telling for the man at present who can make predictions wont talk. That man is Clark Griffith, owner of the Washington and Chattanooga franchises. If, to console Lookout fans for the loss of Joe Engel, the master showman. Griffith tries to offer them a winning combination in exchange, the chances are that Chattanooga can be regarded as a threat in the Southern League race. If. on the other hand, Chattanooga will be used simply as ail experiment farm for rookies who have a chance to help the Washington Senators. then tne potency of Chattanooga diminishes. For, if the latter is the thought, then Chattanooga will become merely another station in the Southern League circuit because rookie teams seldom win consistently. Calvin Griffith has succeeded Engel as president and it is no reflection on the youngster to say that he cannot fill Joe's shoes. Clyde Milan, whom they say has fully regained his health, will be back as SOUTHWESTERN BHAM. SOUTHERN LEW FONSECA WILL SHOW DIAMOND FILM AT HOWARD COLLEGE Lew Fonseca. American League goodwill ambassador, will come to Birmingham next Wednesday and lie will show the American League baseball film at Howard College. The announcement was made today that Fonseca, himself a former baseball star, will show the picture at Howard at 4 o'clock next Wednesday. This picture is something new and is said to be of interest to every person interested in baseball. Dewey Byrd Back In Majors After Deal With Cards P- ttp'-i I 13, Birmingham nil Futil Lie.

Samuel Dewey Byrd, Birmingham's golfing outfielder, will testify. And furthermore, Dewey won't have to go to Rochester. Last Fall, after batting .234 with the Cincinnati club. Dewey was sent to Rochester, in the International League, in a deal for Phil Wein-traub and Jack Rothrock. During the Winter, Dewey, in the midst of a successful Winter golfing season in Florida, received his Rochester contract. But having won the baseball players tournament, Dewey decided that before he would return to minor league baseball. he would quit baseball and become a golf professional. He notified the club to that effect. and in turn Rochester notified , r . . . Cincinnati. Consequently, it be- , Louisiana State in the second game. ST. PETERSBURG. Fla.

In this letter BY KENNETH GREGORY KNOXVILLE, Tenn. iJP) One of the most wide-open tournaments in the history of Southern basket i ball drew the attention today of fans as eight teams, a half dozen favored, squared off in the annual : Southeastern tournament. Georgia Tech, undefeated over the regular season in 10 games top-j seeded, was a favored choice but supporters were found for Ken-j lucky, Alabama, Tennessee and j Mississippi State. One of the pre-game favorites were due to take it on the lam at the outset as Georgia Tech was scheduled to meet Mississippi State in the opening rounds first game, I with the Yellow Jackets of Atlanta favored to advance but not without a battle. Maintaining his prediction that Kentucky was the "team to beat, Coach Blair Gullion saw little hope for Tennessee, the team that rallied spectacularly to beat Alabama's Crimson Tide, 29 to 25, in the finals a year ago. General Scramble "Well, we wont alibi in the least said Coach Adolph Rupp, of Kentucky.

You can say for me. said Athletic Director Bob Neyland. of Tennessee, that this will be one of the most wide open tournaments in years. Every team has a chance. The coaches probably wont agree with me but you cant tell what will happen in a tournament. Generally, the conclusion was that every team had a chance but the discussion wound up with Alabama and Georgia Tech as the choices. Under a quiet bit of conversation Coach Rupp let it be known that Kentucky would be no pushover. The odds favored Georgia Tech to take Mississippi State in the first round, and Kentucky to outlast ORMOND BEACH.

You can't expect a plaver to get overwhelmed over such a move like this, but when a player has a chance to play with another major league club, and with Dizzy Dean, you'd think he d be telling the world about it. But Dewey Byrd isn't, and. what's more, he might not even sign the contract "I'm going to find out what it s 11 about first." said Dewey today 'All I know is that I received a letter from the Reds an odds-on choice over Georgia's I Bulldogs.
