FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY 18, 1935 THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Tampa, Texas PAGE 'HUMAN TELEPHONE POLES' FROM TELL TO PLAY HARVESTERS HERE TONIGHT • FUST inn *• *1 '' ' ' ! I HARVESTERS DROP ONE TO SANDlES IN AN 'OFF NIGHT" Hoppe To Be Here Satoday Hatncl as heavy favorites before Hie frame started, the experienced and fighting Sandlcs whipped a sluggish Harvester basketball tciim 27 fo 21 oil- the Amarillo cnurt last tiight. . On the basis of their performance lost night the Harvest .TS will not be favorites at 7:30 o'clock tonteht when they take the field against thn amazingly tall Tell "trentons" who average six feet and two inches in height. Three of the players on the Childress county rural school team are brothers and their height is six feet five inches, six feet and six feet seven inches, respectively. Since the Harvesters were "off" last night, by one process of reasoning they are expected to bo "on" tonight. At any rate, the boys were optimistic today, and no doubt will exhibit none of the nervousness and hesitancy that characterized their tiff , with the extremely chesty Sandies. • Beginning at 7 o'clork, a fast Follett quintet will square off against the Gorillas nnd.perhaps a few members nf the Harvester second string. The FoT'tt team is highly favored. r>nd Coach Harry Kelley's boys admittedly will have a job on their lionrls. The Follett hoys wanted l~ yi'.nv the Harvesters, but Coach OcUn Mitchell had already matched th? Tellites, so he matched them against the Gorillas. The Harvesters and the Gorillas are on the same spot. Until last night, it was believed that the Har- VEstrs had Irhrvtved a dozen or so points .in the last two weeks since they lost by a sing-la pcint to Turkey's Turks who lo:;t by a dozen points to Tell. S-ndirs Mix It S'idecr. EMfkin, Ppterscn and Harlow fighting ns if they were playing r.n Butler field against a worthvfo3, mixsd it with the Harvesters in an aggressive, determined manner that won despite the obviously superior floorwcrk of the Harvesters. That was one tiling the Harvesters didn't do—mix it. It might be said that the awkward Sandies played their last game of fcbtball last night and got by with it. They amused the capacity house by executing rolling blocks and flying tackles. They .were penalized frequently and perhaps sufficiently, but they.continued their aggressive attack. Referee Frank Kimbrough called 22 fouls, but could have assessed forty fouls. The Price 'players who were here last week were softies compared with the scrapping Sandies, yet Kimbrough overlooked few if any glaring fouls. The Harvesters simply were not used to the type of fight thj Sandies put up and were reluctant to meet them on their own ground—that is all except Mayse Nash. Nash who has been improving rapidly, gave the Sandies .conniption fits. He slipped in blocks, and he went after the ball when the -had it. The Sandies grabbed the lead with the first field goal and kept it until the beginning of the fourth quarter when the count stood 17 all. The Sandies failed to score in the third quarter when the Harvesters chalked up six points, but the Ama- rilloans came back in the fourth period, adding nine points. Grcon Leads Scoring j. R. Green was high-point man of the evening. Hg shot three baskets and made four free shots for a total of ten points. Stidger was next with nine points. Peterson was the hot shot of the Sandie team. In the first quarter, the zone defense used by the Sandies seemed to bother the Harvesters—it was the second time the Pampans have encountered it this year and then against Lakevi'ew in the Mobeetie tournament. It was Peterson's first game of the season. He has been out of school since the state championship football game, but lias worked out .with the Sandie basketball team. Coach Howard Lynch has virtually his 1934 first team back this season. The Harvesters will get another chance at the Sandies, Feb. 7, and on the local court. It is then they plan to get-revenge for the stinging defeat last night. The game was rough—so rough that J. R. Green injured the knee that left his leg stiff a month last spring after football training. The injury may or may not keep him out of games in the future. Scott suffered a hip injury that may or may not prove serious. The Harvesters were handicapped by illness -—Scott, Stokes Green and Irving had colds and were taking medicine. The box score: Fg Ft Tp 000 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 It is not often that billiard fans lave an opportunity to receive free nstruction on the fundamentals of he game, from the world's premier billiardist, but this opportunity is *ivcn to the citizens of Pampa when Willie Hoppe, New York City, present holder of two world's titles and mown as "King of the Ivories" ap- jears here at Pampa Athletic club, 115',-i W. Kingsmill, at 10 p. in. on January 19, in connection with^the lational "E3t'x>r Billiards" program which is being sponsored by the National Billiard association of America.

MUSTANG COACrt S?ILL PONDERS VANDERBILT COACHING OFFER Hoppe needs no introduction to the billiard fans of this vicinity Commonly known as the "boy wonder," Hoppe began playing billiards at the age of 8 years when it was necessary'for him to stand on a soap box to reach the table. Ten years later he won his first world's title when he went to Paris and defeated the then present champion, Maurice Vignaux. From that time on, Hoppe's name has been synonymous with billiards all over the world. • He was born in Cornwell, N. Y., in 1887 and has made his living off of billiards since he became of age. DALLAS, Jan. 18 (/P)—The Soutk- ern Methodist university "aerial circus," one of the greatest of the nation's forward passing elevens, may be without Ray'Morrison, its ringmaster, after today. Morrison said last night he would definitely announce "within a day or two" his decision whether to terminate 1C years of coaching at the Methodist school for an attractive Vanderbilt university offer. Secretive about his decision, Morrison merely said, and rather wearily after a month's deep thinking over the matter, "I am anxious to dispel the matter from my mind." He admitted having conversed by Inng distance telephone with a Vandy official yesterday but quickly denied the report from Nashville that he had been given 48 hours to make his decision. • A month ago Vanderbilt officials, lipon the resignation of the veteran Dan McGugin, tendered the coaching job to Morrison, who won a quarterback berth on one of Walter Camp's ail-American teams while calling McGugin's signals in a Commodore uniform. Twice he has visited Nashville but has delayed his decision. •Southern Methodist officials have exerted every effort to retain the popular coach and even the Dallas city officials solemnly passed a resolution urging the university officials to persuade Ray to remain here, Morrison's son Jack, former Dallas high school star, was a shining light on the Vanderbilt freshman team last season.

Part Of State By The Associated Preps Drizzling rains dampened the northern part of Texas today and mere precipitation was forecast. Temperatures ranged abnormally high. A light shower., fell in Palestine last night and skies were cloudy today. The mercury did not fall below 58 degrees during the last 24 hours. Corsicana had .38 of an inch rain and the temperature remained above 50 .degrees. Fqrt Worth had .20 of ah inch. It was cloudy with a temperature of 50 degrees..

DETROIT, Jan. 18 (/P)—The Detroit Tigers, the club that made the turnstiles click for the American league last year, were picking up the odds and ends around the. front office today, getting ready for another pennant fight without a holdout in sight unless Schoolboy Rowe decides to hold out—for more pitching assignments. The business relations between Frank J. Navin, president of the Detroit baseball club, and his players are a club secret, and baseball men cannot remember when holdouts worried the Tiger management since Ty Cobb and Dutch Leonard were classed as holdouts. The start of the Tigers' spring drill at Lakeland, Fla., is six weeks away, but the foundation for another pennant drive has already begun with the order of Pitcher Tommy Bi'idges and Marvin Owen, the third baseman, to Hot Springs for early conditioning. Alvin .Crowder, who was sold to the : Tigers last yeur just in time to cut in on the finish of the pennant fight, may also be sent to Hot Springs. The club management already has Howe's pitching arm under examination to make certain that he will be ready for another fling at a new record for consecutive victories. Manager Mickey Coehrane is expected to depend upon Rowe, Bridges, Crowder and Elddn Auker to combine their talents in winning the biggsst share of 100 ball games 'in the 1935 campaign. With the other clubs in the circuit still Juggling their prospective lineups for the next season, it is likely that the Tigers will be the only club in the American league to' start the season with the same infield setup that-finished the 1934 campaign. Cabbage Prices HABLINGEN, Jan. 18 (/P)—Pickets surrounded produce sheds in this section today in an effort to prevent the movement of cabbage purchased for less thazi $10 a ton, a minimum price set by the Valley Produce Growers' association. Homer P. Huntley, secretary- treasurer of the growers association, Whiich lists a 5,000 membership, said last night Bio Grande Valley farm- ers would peacefully picket the sheds and. restrain the shipment of cabbage bought for less than the minimum. The action was taken when the minimum price in some sections dropped to $8 a ton. .«.

THE SPORTS HORN By BILL PAUKKR Associated Press Sports Writer- DALLAS, Jan. 18. </P)—Coach Henry Prnka of the Greenville high school Lions, 1933 Texas Inter- EBholastic league gridiron champions, may join the Northwestern university coaching staff. Prnka returned to Greenville yesterday from Oklahoma City where he discussed the situation with Lynn Waldorf, the new Northwestern football mentor. "I told Waldorf I was happily situated at Greenville, had a good job and received fine support from school officials and. vans." ht said. "If would give the Northwestern position 'serious consideration if offered me but I can't say now that I would accept it." {>. number of Fv,nka'$ admii'ers are interested in a movement for his employment by southern Metho- dist university s,hould Coach Ray Morrison accept a Vanderbilt university coaching offer. Dallasites like the way Frnka handles his youngsters and produces winning teams. It is a fact that Prnka is keen for a college coaching position providing he can increase his earnings and establish himself more in the coaching spotlight. He commands a large salary at Greenville and shares oh the gate in bi-'district games. Don Stewart, business manager of the Tulsa Oilers, visited Henderson yesterday and completed arrangements for the Oilers to spring tra'in there. He said that Tulsa would start spring training about March 10. p^ahomft City wiy frajta. ft* Jfw£- sonviUe, Tex., but aU ether Texas league aggregations will train in their (own backyards.

Business Asked To (tire Tips To Administration WASHINGTON, Jan. 18. (AP) — The Roosevelt administration fashioned today a . speaking tube through which, officials said, all business men can, tell the govern, merit their ideas on what the new deal should and should not do. After a white house conference, Secretary of Commerce Roper an. nounced that his business advisory and planning council, composed of 52 leading business men, had been designated as the agency to receive suggestions about pending legislation or other matters. In turn, the suggestions will be passe'd on to the cabinet officers or other .officials. The move was in answer to demands among business men that some wa|y of freely registering their ideas with high officials be worked out. H. P. Kendall of Boston, chairman of the council, attended the white 1 house meeting with Roper. He said one of the first subjects to which the council would devote itself would be the best type of public works for the jobless. The plan first became known at a dinner given by Hoper last night to industrial leader? and high officials. "The watchword of this meeting is cooperation," he said. Leading business executives also found today that they had some governmental support for a theory —held by many of them—that the NBA should be continued on the 1 present temporary basis for a further period. This belief was announced by S. Clay Williams, chairman of the blue eage board, before the National Retail Dry Goods association in New York. CHEVIGNY WOULD PLACE NO LIMIT ON TOSSING OF BALL BULLDOGS FAVORED TO BEAT HARVESTERS TOMORROW NIGHT NATIONAL LEAGUE WILL RESCUE BRAVES AT MEETING TODAY AUSTIN, Jan. 18. (/P)—If Jack Chevigny, head football coach at the University of Texas, was allowed to make football rules spectators would become dizzy watching the progress of a ball during a lateral pass play. Chevigny said he would place no limit on the number of times the ball may be tossed around. Chevigny is of the opinion a liberal interpretation of the rule would make the game more thrilling and spectacular. His views are contrary to those entertained by other football mentors. Chevigny Groom Defeated By McLean Boys And Girls Teams GROOM, Jan. 17.—McLean's two high school basketball tdams won games from Groom teams here, the McLean girls winning 50 to 13 and the McLean boys on the long end of a 17 to 14 score believes the existing Miss Preston of McLean was high rules, generally, should be interpreted satisfactorily before the book is loaded down with new regulations. "I am content with the present rules and before adding new ones I feel we should have a better interpretation of the existing rules," he commented. "A clearer ruling as to when the forward progress of the man in possession of the ball has been stopped is necessary." Chevigny recalled a play in the S. M. U.-Arkansas game in which Arkansas scored a touchdown on a lateral pass but the officials called it back, ruling the ball was dead before the lateral was thrown. Many observers, Chevigny said, agreed the play had not been stopped and that the touchdown should have been allowed. Many of the remedies proposed to cure evils of subsidizing are impractical, Chevigny said. "A definite code is both impossible and impractical. The only manner in which a code could be definitely established and enforced would be by a classification of schools—a definite code for "A" ranking schools." . Chevigny said he was in sympathy with the agreement reached by coaches and officials at the national intercollegiate coaches conference to concentrate on preserving the fundamental principles of scholarship and amateur athletes. standing among MONEY OR YOUR TEETH LOUISVILLE, Ky. (/P)—For writing- two bogus checks Douglas O. Walsh lost his liberty and half of his teeth. On his plea of guilty he got three years in prison. The dentist who took one of the checks for an upper plate reclaimed the teeth. scorer, followed by Miss Tidwell of Groom. McLean led at the half, 26 to 7, with; a; fine exhibition of basket-shooting. Groom's boys led 4 to 3 at the half but the Tiger hoopsters got to work in the last half to eke out a win. McLean's Ledbetter was high point man on the floor with 10 points. Kuehler scored high for Groom with 6 points. Players taking the floor during the games were: Girls—Groom: Clark, Tidwell, Burgdorf, O. McDonald, J. McDonald, Brunnier, Collins, and Weems. McLean—O. Back, C. Back, Glenn, Young, Landers, Ayers, Swafford, Preston, Reimer, McCarty, Downer, and Persley. Boys—Groom: Kendrick, Kuehler, Kimmings, Podd, Hall. - McLean—Toiliver, McCarty, Stratton, Ledbetter, Daniels. The Harvester basketball team will again be the underdogs in a game herfe tomorrow night with the Borger Bulldogs. The Pampans lost a dull affair devoid of thrills to the favored Amarillo Sandies last night by six points. Last week, the Sandlcs nosed out the Bulldogs on the Amarillo court, in the last half- minute by one point. On the basis of those figures the Bulldo'gs are rated at least five points better than the Harvesters. The Borger girls will tilt with the Harvcstercltcs in a game preceding the Bulldog-Harvester clash. The girls' game will start at 7 o'clock. Whether the Sandies are experiencing early-season luck or whether they have a better team than the Harvesters and Bulldogs of course cannot be learned until, they meet their class A foes on the Pampa .and Borger courts. The Sandstorm was adequately downed last week at Hereford, a team which lost heavily to Tulia' Hornets who were literally swamped in a game here. Coach Odus Mitchell is expecting strong opposition from the Bulldogs. He believes they have a better team than the Sandlcs and will be harder to beat than the Amarilloans. The Harvesters are expected to be fully recovered from their slump at Amarillo last night by tomorrow night, and are due to come back fighting for victory. ~*» Wheeler County Tourney To Be February 1546 MOBEETIE, Jan. 18.—The Wheeler county conference will be played in Mobeetie on February 15 and 16 with seven teams competing. The winning team will go to Pampa for the district tournament. Teams to compete in the county tournament are Shamrock, Biscoe, Wheeler, Kelton, Lela, Magic City, and Mobeetie. Mobeetie has severSl hard games scheduled before the tournament. They will meet Wheeler in Mobeetie Friday night. On January 26 and 26 the Hornets will enter the Canadian tournament. Tome and home games will be played with White Deer on February 1 and 2. The Mobeetie girls' team has been defeated only once this season. Mobeetie and Shamrock will play off for the right to enter the Panhandle basketball league play-off. Olin-Lewis Bout Delayed Because Of Aching Tooth NEW YORK, Jan. 18 (/P)—Madison Square Garden will be dark to boxing tonight—all because of an infected tooth. The aching molar belongs to Bob Olin, light heavyweight champion. It gave him so much pain that he pleaded for postponement of his 10- round overweight match with John Henry Lewis, Phoenix, Ariz., negro contender, scheduled for tonight. After Olin was examined by a state athletic commission physician, an indefinite postponement was granted. NEW YORK, Jan. 18. f/P)—Club owners of the National League met in extraordinary session today 10 rcEcuo the Boston Braves from the financial rocks. Junt what line of procedure the league would take still was urire- vealcd, but President Ford Prick said the special sessions Would continue until a solution is found. "After a week or so of wrestling vith this Uilng," he explained, "I don't anticipate a great amount of trouble getting things straightened cut. Frankly it doesn't look nearly as touch as it did." In the absence of official comment, baseball observers expressed the opinion that only through complete reorganization could the club emerge from the tangle. Such a solution, they believed, probably would mean the retirement of President Emil Fuchs as well as of Charles F. Adams, who not only is- vice-president of the club but holds most of the Braves' mortgages and controls the holding corporation which leases Braves field. Adams, who has wide-spread business enterprises not connected with sport, has announced publicly he does not care to add the Braves to his other interests. Several possible buyers, it was reported, have appeared, and from them may come the answer for which the league so fervently is looking. As a last resort, the league itself may operate the club until a buyer can be found. • FIRE DRILL STATESBORO, Ga. (/P) — Fire Chief W. M. Hagin must have his little joke—and his men must Have practice. ; . , Clouds of black smoke caused a general turnout of the citizenry, including the fire 'department. They dashed to the scene—and found a trash pile blazing in a vacant lot. Tlie firemen extinguished the blaze and went back to the station. Chief Hagin said he had ignited the blaze to give his laddies practice. Statesboro hasn't had a fire alarm in two months.
