Mo.—The Cooler bis- ketball squads split » two game set with the Deering high teams at Deering Thursday night. The Cooler girls won by a score of 19 to 12 but the Cooler boys lost 48 to 23 in a very Interesting game.

The Caruthersville-Coolcr games, scheduled for Friday were postponed until Wednesday, Jan. 22. BRUSHING UP SPORTS By Laufer I CLEVELAND, Ohio—While the automobile Is generally accepted nt an Important factor 'n swelling at- Icndance records al football game. 1 ;. It Is regarded by Ray Fisher as the Immedate cause for shrinkage In Intercollegiate baseball Interest. Pusher wns a major league pitcher with Ihc Yankees 15 years ago and for 10 years has been baseball coach at the University of Mlchl- an. Certainly he has sufficient ground to comment on the situation. Interest In college baseball has depreciated about one-fifth In Fisher's time, he indicates. The quality of the game remains the same and the boys who play get Just us much kick out of It, according to Fisher. "You wouldn't think enough student? had< automobiles," explains the Michigan have." mentor, "but they Direction of the Yale nine In several diamond exhibitions thh spring will be entrusted to the cnp- lain. From such a move authorities hope to gain first hand knowledge of what Is necessary to place ath- 'ellcs in the hands of students. Naturally, football is the sport at which the movement is aimed, but football, probably more than any other branch of athletics, will withstand such a change longer -than any other member of Yale's sport family. The grid S|>ort will succumb late. If ever, due to the belie! that Ihc brand of football would be lowered to such an extent :is to lose Its hold on public fancy. Since 1025 it has been Yale's desire to put Into effect an agreement exactly the same as this with le- gard lo baseball alone, according to Prof. G. H. Nettleton, chairman of the Y. W. C. A, board of control. WJicther or not Ihe movement dlej out entirely during the current, year, Yale authorities believe something, of serious Import will come of this first tangible move Cardwell High School Beats Hoicomb Twice Sherman Lost To Cliickasaws Corbelt Knows It Jim Corbett can tell you something cf what the sporl teeter-totter Is like. Even after Corbett had felled the 'roaring Sullivan, he was not accepted at once 'as Ihc real champion. He was referred lo as a "dancer" whose style would never allow him to become a ' great fighting man .of John L.'s caliber They locked upon him as a boxer help him, and that the bill be sent '.o Tunney. And Dr. Willing? It wouldn't surprise this writer to find one day that Dr. Willing, he painstaking coast golfer • who •on.such general hatred in the mateur at Pebble Beach last fall, ad become a popular figure in the ye of the sports world. His dlla- cry tactics enraged several of his pponcnts in that tournament, ond he gallery fought him almost to a man. He battled on. in his way. cgardless of the sentiment against him. Now we learn that only Bobby tones ranks ahead of Dr Willing is a medalist in last year's play What was regarded as his exasperating delay may become mere- tx. and a smart dude. But that nl changed after Corbelt demonstrnt ed that' even if he did win by box Ing and by little artifices of th ring that re Invented himself, non of these punchers could beat him They said he didn't really have knockrut punch, but Jim prove that he could knock them out, jus the same. Alter a time the nam of :"Gentleman Jim" became popular byword and Jim Corbet became a popular charapicn. eve if there remain people In Bosto today to whom he never can champion. The people who watch spor events bod Just as heartily as they I clap, but when a champion shows | the ability, they accept him. no nutter how he wins. Sports writers often form snap judgments' of the acttrs in the sports irama. These opinions pass from one to the other. People who never have seen Gene Tunney hated him as bitterly as though he had passed them in the street with a flihy stare. Tunney has been 'awarded the repuuticn of being "hl«h hat" but there are qualities about.this man that makes the i Ulit he is a snob seem trlf- s' painstaking skill. The very tiling he galleries hated about Dr. Will- ng's style may become admirable even If eccentric, in the eyes o :hose who watch the golfers go about their business. Th»t Is thi way Ihe teeter-totter works In sports. Ed Sherman, star end of the Blylhevlllts high school football squad and captain elect for the 1930 edition of the Chickasaws, left this .morning for Balesvllle. Ark., where he will live with his parents the Rev. and Mrs. Jefferson 3her- mumn, who moved to that city several months ago after living here for four years. Sherman will not return to schoo' here It is understood. His loss wll' be a big blow to the IIOJKS of tho Chicks for another splendid season. Sherman was selected (is f member of tlie mythical all-North east Arkansas eleven last fall am received honorable mention on sev eral all-state selections. Rayder named sub-captain al the annua banquet, of the squad, will lead th team next year. Earle Cardinals To Meet Champion Cager CARDWELL,.
