(#>) — Col. John Reed Kilpatriek still is slightly annoyed about the mix-up in the judges' ballots in the Vince Dundee-Babe llisko fight last week. A former star football .end at Yale and now president of the Madison Square Garden corporation, the colonel declares he will ask the New York state athletic commission to appoint Jack Dempsey as referee of the heavyweight match between Art Lasky and Jimmy Braddock Friday night at the Garden. "The decisions recently handed down In the Garden," said Col. KUpatrlck, "have sp antagonized the .fans that drastic steps must be taken if confidence is to be restored. "Just one man can do It, Jack Dempsey. Every fan knows that if Jack is in the ring a fair and intelligent decision will be rendered. He has always been ready to help the boxing game and if the commission will grant their approval, Jack will be in the Garden ring Friday night." No one knows, officially, just what Brig. General J. J. Phelan and .his fellow-commissioners will reply; but the best guess seems to be that" the answer will be "no." Though Barney Ross' defense of his junipr welterweight championship against Frankie Klick at Miami tonight tops the week's program, results at the Garden Friday will be watched carefully. Lasky is raid amdng th leading hajf- dpzcn challengers for Max Baer's title and.'the mid-western will have to dispose. of praddock handily to retain his rating. .. . ..,.;''''.*> — - — • WRONG TOLL CHIOAqp, VPj— Robbers took a brass. valve from a gas main, but that wasn't what aroused officials ire. .Instead of a saw, they used a blowtorch', arid when firemen arr rived, a .ZO-^foot sheet of flame was spurting from the severed pipe. ; PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 28. (/P) —George Wright, the daddy of goll in America, old time big league baseball player and allarounc sportsman, celebrated |his 88th birthday today, fretting because he could not be about as usual. He was hurt in a fall recently and had to be "rather quiet,'" but he hoped to "be able to get arounc shortly." Wright, after' his baseball days opened a sporting' goods store in Boston. He placed an order for some cricket bats from Scdtlanc and while perusing the catalogue ran across an advertisement ol some golf clubs. He ordered some of them too. When they came there was no rule book. The golf clubs were relegated to a back shelf. '"Finally.," Wright recalled, "I told one of the clerks in my store to use them for window dressing- It wasn't long before a Scotsman visiting Boston, saw them and came in looking for a golf course. "I saw my opportunity to learn something of the game. He told me about the rules and the kind of a course needed and promised to senc me a book on golf." The book arrived in due time, and Wright, after making arrangements with the city authorities, laid out a course. A group of his friends introduced the game to Boston. "That was back in 1890," he said, " and the following year the Brook- liine Country club, an organization always promoting the best interest of any sport, took up golf, the first, I think of any club sponsoring the game on a large scale." . Wright was shortstop on the first all-professional baseball team in the country, the Cincinnation Red Stockings, and was paid $1,400 a year, top salary. He ''can't understand" baseball as it is played today. It is much faster, he says. ONE-TON CAKE CHICAGO, (IF) — There's enough cake in the city hall to feed a small army—and in one piece, too. The one-ton delicacy, which required 3,161 eggs, 155 pounds of butter, 153 quarts of milk, six pounds of salt and four pints of vanilla, was mixed by 10 men and baked for 10 hours in a 155-foot oven. Mayor Kelly will auction it off, slice by. slice, as a preliminary, of ChicagcBs (participation ii\ PresU- dent Roosevelt's nationwide birthday party. __ Don Faurot, new University of Missouri football coach, had the unique record of having played varsity football at three different Missouri high schools. NATIONAL CHAMPIONS ARE VICTIMS OF UPSETS FISHING COSTS OVER NATION TO BE INCREASED THIS YEAR KANSAS CITY, Jan. 28. (/P)—It- will cost you more to hunt and fish this year in a number of states, a "cross-section" survey shows, and the money obtained that way will provide better sport along the streams and in the woods. Tjje additional revenue will be spent mainly for maintenance of sanctuaries and the propagation of fish and game. Not the least of the conservationists' worries is the possibility of a close wild-fowl season In 1935, which would make a big dent in the'• ""working capital" of var vious state departments depending upon ,the sale of licenses for funds. There are thousands of duck hunters who do not care for upland shoatiiig. AJBMSRK the states whose legislatures plan to boost or have increased the price of hunting and fishing are Maine and Arizona, both the stamping grounds of big ?ame. The increase in Maine would increase the resident fee from 05 oents to $1.15, and be used to propagate more game fish and maintain f ,he state's game {arm. Short term non-resident licenses are considered by Delaware and Indiana. Indiana would permit issuance of a ten-day fishing license to outsiders for $1 and require separate resident permits for hunting, fishing and trapping. At present a $1 fee covers all three. The Delaware yearly fee for non-residents now, is, $15.50 and $5 additional for fishing privileges except in the Delaware river and bay where no license is required. The Texas fish ,game and oyster cemmMslon has pvoposed an universal shooting and fishing license to get needed funds, BY RUSSELL J. NEWLANt), Associated Press Sports Writer. SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28 (/Ft— Survivors of the most thrilling rounds in the 5-year history of the San Francisco match play open golf tournament, Harold "Jug" McSpaden, Kansas City, and Harry Cooper, Chicago, match strokes today in the 30-hole finals. In the gallery as the pair tee off over the Presidio club course will be three present national champions and two former title holders, all victims of upsets or par in the earlier competition. They included Lawson Little, British and American amateur champion; Paul Runyan, P. O. A. tltlist; Olln Dutra, national open standard bearer; Gene Sarazen, and Walter Hagen. Runyan and Sarazen passed from competition before the superior stroking of one of the finalists, Cooper, who continued on to beat Johnny Revolta, Milwaukee, 2 and 1, in the quarter-finals and Jimmy Thompson, Long Beach, one up in tho semi-finals, both; played yesterday. McSpadcn, 26-year-old "nerveless" shotmakcr, who already leads the winter tournament parade with victories in the recent Pasadena anc Sacramento opens, put Byron Nelson, Texarkana, Texas, to a 6 anc 4 rout in the quarter-final match He went to sub-par golf to beat Ky Laffoon, Chicago, in the semi-finals 3 and 1. At the ninth he was two up booming straight down the middle. He held a five up margin al the twelfth/, lost back two holes and ended the match on the seventeenth with a par four. Whereas McSpaden mowed down opposition with little trouble, Cooper, fought his way to the last round after great battles. Thomson made a strong bid, shooting a par 36 to lead Cooper one up at the ninth The Chicagoan, hpwevcr, put on a rousing last nine finish by squaring the match on the tenth and going into the lead on the next hole. He then halved the next four holes to coast out. The winner of the toumSmen had $750 waiting for him with $400 for the runner-up. Groves Believes He Is Good Bet To WinJO Games NEW YORK, Jan. 28. (/P)— Roberl Moses Grove, the American league's bis: question mark, believes his valuable left arm has regained its losf cunning and that he is a good bei to win at least 20 ball games for the Boston Red Sox this year. Looking as lean and limber as ever, the tall southpaw visited his old stamping grounds at Philadelphia the other day and cheered one and all with the confident prediction that he'll stage a real comeback with the Yawkey-Collins- Cronin combination. "I'm in great shape," he said. "I never felt better. My arm hasn' bothersd me all winter. I'm o. k." Besides walking a lot and hunting, Grove has been bowling anc getting in some work with a rowing machine. He says he has yet to fee a twinge or a tweak in his salarj whip. He isn't saying he will reach hi: steaming 1931 form, which brough 31 victories and only four defeats but he is sure he'll collect 20 victories this year and maybe more. Notwithstanding his lunimpres sive showing when he won only eight games and dropped the sami number, Tom Yawkey and Eddii Collins haven't lost confidence in their $125,000 beauty. They recently gave him a new contract calling foi the same salary he received las year—$25,000. ^ Jay Gould, Net Star, Is Dead NEW YORK, Jan. 28 (/P) — A funeral service will be held tomorrow for Jay Gould, for years one of the world's ranking court tennis players and grandson of the noted financier He died Saturday night at Marga retville, N.

(/!>) — Tills week's competition in the southwest conference basketball race Is limited to a single game Saturday night at Waco between Texas Christian and Baylor. A Baylor win would put the Bears into a third place tie with Texas A. and M., Southern Methodist and Bice. The outcome of the Baylor and Texas Christian tic will have no bearing on the lendship held by Arkansas with a perfect record of lour victories. Nor will it bother the University of Texas in second place with three wins and two defeats. The two games last week featured Baylor's surprising 33 to 29 win at College Station over Texas A. and M. The Bears, however lost ground Saturday night at Houston by losing to Rice 41 to 31. The Aggies' defeat dropped them down a notch and lifted the idle TTniversitv of Texas Longhorns into second place. Rice went into the lead as the strongest offensive team with 1D3 points. Arkansas retained the best defensive record, that of holding the opposition to 93 points. Alford, Baylor forward, jumped to third place in the scoring race with 48 points. His five field goals and seven free shots against A. and M. gave him 17 points, and hs continued the good work against Rice by looping three field goals and as many free shots for 9 points. Moody of Arkansas and Gray of Texas, idle last week, remained in a scoring deadlock for first place, each with 49 points. ' Q. You went and got the money from the trunk? A. Never touched the trunk.

The Gorillas and Lynx were tied at 9 to 9 at the end of the half, and at 11 to 11 at the end of the third; period. Coach Kelley lost four of his starters through personal fouls in the last quarter and Spearman surged to the front despite the great work of Gorilla substitutes. Spearman won the game in the last four minutes of play by sink- ins long field goals. The Lynx won their second game in the same manner. The system of play presented by the Lynx appeared to be a long-shot barrage in the closing minutes of play. The Gorillas passed accurately, watched double dribbles and traveling, and generally playc'd good basketball, Coach Kelley reported. The Gorillas will propably play games this week-end Harvesters are on a while the road trip which will take them to Tulia, Ropesville, LuUftiock, and Plainview.
