Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1952 FIFTEEN Forty Champs Among Entries In AAU Meet NEW YORK-(INS)-There will be more champions than there are ; championships to pass around at tomorrow night's National AAU track and field meet in Madison ^quare Garden. ; J ' Forty national champions are . wnong the entries—23 of them winners of 1951 indoor or outdoor titles, the rest of earlier vintage. That welter of talent presages not only the dethronement of some of the 11 defending indoor kings but 1 also the possible smashing of up to a half dozen gilt-edged national records. Ten-Year Mark Threatened On the vulnerable list are the • two-year-old record of 1:11.2 in the ; 6flO-yard run and the ten-year-old : mark of 2:10.5 in the 1,000. Both are jeopardized by a couple of the : finest fields these colorful events have ever drawn. Defender Hugo Malocco is threatened In the 600 by the likes of : George Rhoden, outdoor quarter; ipile champion: Olympic Half-Mile ; King Mai Whitfield and two young: er stars, Charley Moore, formerly of Cornell, and Ollie Sax, late of Penn i State. Bon Gehrmann makes his 'much- discussed bid in the 1,000 in a field distinguished by 1951 Champ Roscoe Brown, Reggie Peatman and Col- leglohs Carl Joyce of Georgetown and Kay Hweiler of Villanova. Wilt Unchallenged Fred Wilt is practically unchal- ; lenged hi his shot at a second! championship, of 4:08.2 is no( ' his grasp. Ageless Harrison Dillard ; (Should win his sixth straight 60; yard hurdle crown. The two-mile ; run shapes up as a two-man battle between veteran competitors Curt Stone and Horace Ashenfelter. , Bob Richards, the Vaulting Par»on, after weary months of competing in the shadow of the great Cornelius Warmerdam may finally eclipse one of the old master's records. Warmerdam's AAU meet record is only 15 feet, 3% inches—a height that Richards has exceeded twice in the past.

St. John's Nears Tourney Bid With 59-56 Win Over Bennies NEW YORK—(/P)—Dayton University and St. John's of Brooklyn have just about clinched bids to one and possibly both of the major post-season college basketball tournaments—the National Invitation and the NCAA. Dayton, victor over St. John's in*last year's NIT semi-finals, won its 13th straight game last night, a 69 to 59 squeak over Eastern Kentucky. St. John's made it nine in a row. by whipping St. Bonaventure 59 to 56. A spokesman for the NTT said unofficially that the Ohioans and the Brooklyn red men were high on the list of teams being considered. As for the NCAA it is possible both will be invited to compete as 'At Large' teams. St. John's competed in the NCAA last year, too. The "At Large" category was set up by the NCAA to provide for independent teams not members oi the recognized ten major conferences. The winners of these ten conferences automatically qualify for the NCAA tourney. So far only Kentucky, the defending national champs has qualified by winning the Southeastern Conference title. • Both Dayton and St. John's had a Fir/w Will Replace Windows Hit By 'Sandiot' Players «/ Area youngsters who have a habit of hitting baseballs through windows surrounding the "old sandlot" are finally getting another "break"-—not in the window. F. C. Russell, Cleveland manufacturer of storm windows; announces that his company will pay for replacement of any home owner's window broken by a youngster playing ball — baseball, Softball, football or any other kind. Remembering his own "painful" window-pane breaking experiences as a youth, he has listed several conditions for youngsters of 6 to 16 years of age to follow. He or his parents (the youngster) difficult time last staved off a late night. Dayton j should contact the Rusco Window Eastern rally that cut Dayton's 14-point halftime margin to two points, 59-57, with less than a minute left. Charles Grigsby then assured the win by making a free throw. St. John's had to come from behind a 43-37 deficit late in the second half to down the Bonnies, ranked fourth in this week's Associated Press poll. Zeke Zawoluk led the attack with 25 points, in addition to grabbing 18 rebounds. DcPaul, also believed under consideration for the NIT, had its nine-gome winning streak snapped by Notre Dame, 76-70. and Supply Company, 203 South George Street, where he will be presented with a card bearing his name and address. When a, window is smashed, the card is to be presented to the windowless and now "painless" owner who is asked to return the ball and mail the card to the company and the broken window will be replaced. Louis Announces Retirement Affaiu FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF SATURDAY, WHILE FACTORY REPRESENTATIVE IS HERE ALL DAY! No nicks or cuts No muss or fuss See for yourself how you can get a Closer, Cleaner shave in LESS TIME than any other method, wet or dry. NEW YORK— beaten king of Louis, un- the heavyweight fighters for 12 years, has fought his last fight. The onetime Brown Bomber announced last night on his arrival from Los Angeles that he is through with fighting except for exhibitions. Asked when he had made up his mind to definitely retire Louis replied: I made up my mind when I was knocked out by Rocky Marciano." That was last October 26 when Joe took the count for the second time in his career. The other knockout was by Max Schmeling before Louis became champion. Louis said he hopes to box in some exhibitions in April and May and then return to work for the International Boxing Club. favorite Winter sport. "I must tell you that in England we allow only women to play basketball," he confessed. Like Exhausted Chorus Gals "The very movements of the players remind me of some rather exhausted chorus girls rehearsing, despite the ferocious faces of the young men who try so desperately ;o make it seem as though they were killing lions in the arena." Anderson has never quite recovered from the horrible experience of watching his first American sasketball game. The referee blew ;he whistle so often the Englishman began to wonder if it was his game or the players.' Perhaps Mr. Anderson is a bit tiarsh on our lads, out there's a lot of truth in what he says. No less an authority than Yale's Howard Hobson, chairman of the United States Olympic Basketball Committee, admits there is much room for rules improvement. The other day, Yale and Springfield College experimented with what was advertised as "the basket^ ball game o'f the future." Score Just Incidental The Elis won, 76-71, but the score was incidental. The tilt was featured by four rules changes which Hobson has been advocating since 1944. The foul lane was widened from six to 12 feet. Two free-throws were awarded for all defensive fouls. It was compulsory that bot 1 :. frse- throws be taken. When a foul was committed by an oSensive team, or when neither team has control of the ball, the offended team was awarded poses- sion rather than a free-throw. Fans, coaches and officials attending the contest received ballots, were asked to state their views. "This "was the best game I've seen in 20 years," announced one spectator. Hobson Plan Favored "Just what the game needs — a tremendous improvement," chorused another. In short, the majority was in favor of Hobson's recommendations, "In many ways, basketball is still in its infancy," Hobson asserts "The game is still in the process of development and the rules have to change with it. "The experimental game with Springfield reduced fouling more than 20 per cent. It was played in less time, the tempo was faster and more exciting. "Widening the foul lane from six to 12 feet opened up the game, prevented wild scrambles under the basket. For example, Yale had 21 drive-ins, Springfield 16. A defensive man thought twice before hacking a player to keep him. from scoring. In 1950 the minors hit their peak of 59 leagues and 444 teams. Now the field has dwindled to 43 leagues and 320 clubs. Ten loops dropped out between the 1950 and 1951 seasons, seven ;ave up this winter, and one ten- club circuit split up to help form two six-team loops. Phil Piton, No. 1 aide to Minor League President George M. Trautman who is in the Southland, struck an optimistic note today as he said: "The leagues still in the fold appear to be financially stable. Most of those which dissolved were borderline loops, unable to hold up in the lace of attendance drops, major league broadcast competition, and the loss of players to the services." Leagues which have folded, or will be dissolved within the next few days, include the Class A Central League made up of teams in Michigan, Ohio and West Virginia; "lass C Mid-Atlantic, with teams in New York, Massachusetts and Evidence Not Conclusive "Our game, however, is not conclusive evidence that my rule changes are the answer. Much is left to be done. I'd like to .sec more colleges play experimental games like this before any conclusions can be made." Springfield who tutored Coach John Bunn, the immortal Hank Luisetti at Stanford and is past president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, happily endorses The Hobson Plan. "The advantages are far greater than any disadvantages," he says. It's encouraging tc see that someone is trying to giving the game back again. Shuffle Leaders Rack Up Victories Stadium Inn of Frostburg and Cumberland Knights of Columbus scored 3-0 victories last night in the Allegany County Men's Shuffleboard League as the Innmen remained a full game ahead of the local Caseys.

Forty and Eight remained a game behind the Legion by taking the BPO Elks across, 54-52. Bob Lookabaugh's 15 markers paced the Forty and Eight. Bill Day, Elks, and Merle Hoggard, for the winners, each had 14 tallies. The lineups: Lindsay Flunks At Maryland; May Make Up Credits COLLEGE PARK—(/P)—Another University of Maryland football player has had to leave school because of scholastic difficulties, but he may be back next fall. A university spokesman said End Paul Lindsay of Ridgeley, W. Va.. had to leave school because he lacked sufficient credits to remain in ;ood standing at the end of the last semester. Lindsay may, however, make up the deficiency in summer school and be reinstated next fall. Earlier this week, Halfback Joe Petruzzo and Linebacker Roy Martine failed their mid-term examinations and were forced to leave. Lindsay, a first-strint, off ens'''e end, caught nine passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns last season.

As a result they remain tied with the Minneapolis. Lakers for the Western Division lead in the National Basketball Association. Rochester edged the Syracuse nats, eastern half pacesetters, 78-76, when Jack Coleman tapped in Arnie Risen's rebound just as the gun sounded. Syracuse protested the game claiming Coleman's shot came after the gun. The official timer ruled that Coleman got the ball after the inR was over, but Referee Jocko Collins overruled the timer. The Lakers coasted to an 109-74 triumph over the Milwaukee Hawks. Jim Pollard sank 25 points and George Mikan 16 to spark the winners. In other games, the Indianapolis Olympians downed the Baltimore Bullets, 89-66, and the Port Wayne Pistons nipped the Boston Celtics, 94-90. Hardware Company 30 N. Mechanic St. 52 7 18 28 E. S. Cnnf.
