Allen's Jayhawks Blast Iowa State Capture title '•' • By SKIPPER'PATRICK LAWRENCE, Kans., Feb. 26—UP) —Dr. Forrest C. (Phog) Allen's University of Kansas Jayhawks had their twelfth big six basketball title in eighteen years of conference feuding today because three war veterans had turned the clocks back three years. The veterans — ex-army officers Charlie Black, Otto Schnellbacher and "Ray Evans — had even the good doctor bubbling: with the enthusiasm of a college freshman after, the Jayhawks annexed their ninth conference victory in biasing Iowa State, 69-41, here last night. •v-The Kansas victory erased Okla- hpma's chances of 'gaining a tie for the crown when the teams clash at IjTorman, Okla., Thursday night. V;,The new title was the eighth undisputed championship for Allen— coach Kansas teams since the big six's birth in 1928-29, and extended his . Missouri Valley-Big Six championship-totals to 20 in twenty-nine years. Four Jayhawk teams have shared the big six honors. Black boosted his scoring total for the season to 159 points by sinking eight field goals and three charity tosses against retiring champion Iowa State. ' Schnellbacher, second man in the Jayhawk scoring machine with 84 points, and Evans, who has played in only three games, served Uncle Sam's army as lieutenants. 1 The Jayhawks lost their only game pf the season to Oklahoma A. & M. last !December, but Allen says his team has just started rolling. Application Made or flew WASHINGTON, Feb." 28—l/P)— The Tennessee Gas and Electric 'transmission companv, Houston, Texas, .lias asked authority from the:federal power commission for a $29,500,000 construction program to Increase delivery capacity of its /Texas-West Virginia pipeline.

C vioon Depiris Hirnb of Phillies From National Pit By GAYfcE TALBOT MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Feb. 26.— (#•)—Tacked on the wall of the Philadelphia Nationals' club house here is a large cartoon of ft ball player with a "P" on his shirt coming blinkingly out of an old-fashioned cellar, a bat over his shoulder and bemused expression on his face. It was drawn especially for the Phillies by the well-known sports cartoonist. Willard Mullin, and it will be reproduced on the face of every score card sold in the club's home park this season. It not only is about the first instance on record of a ball club poking fun at its own infirmities, but it also sums up graphically what Manager Ben Chapman has to say. "We're a-coming up out. of that cellar," declared the old Yankee outfielder, who wound up his playing career last year as a pitcher of parts. "I hope everybody picks us for last again, just so we can make them look bad. We've got a real infield now and we've got power. If we get pitching and find a good catcher, we'll be up there somewhere. "The way I get it, St. Louis and Brooklyn will fight it out for the (lag, and after that anything can happen. With a little luck we can be right up in the race. We still hope to get a couple of those St Louis pitchers, and owner Cam Breadon has promised to let us the minute he and his manager make up their minds who they will sell. Meantime, we're going to watch the waiver lists mighty close." Chapman expects Prank McCormick, his new first baseman from Concinnati, to clout around 20 home- nins. He figures that Jim Tabor, his third baseman from the Boston Red Sox, will be good for another 15, and that Ron Northy, his right fielder, and Vincc Di Maggio, in center, should spank somewhere between 15 and 20 round-trippers apiece. The club might get still more power in left field, whose occupant is likely to be either Lou Novikoff, the highly-publicized failure of the Chicago Cubs, or John Wyrostek, a recent purchase from the Cardinals, who hit .358 for Columbus. Novikbff was banished last year to Los Angeles, where he hit .310 in 101 games. At least, it can be put down that the Phils' new owner is in trying and spending his dollars until he ., • v *• * t*»> JKac * I ft Baylor To Participate In NCAA Regional WACO, Tex., Feb. 26— (IP)— Bayor's rollicking Bears, winners of the southwest conference basketball championship and now cutting capers on an eastern tour, will play in he National collegiate Athletic association regional tournament at Kansas City March 22-23.

NEW YORK, Feb. 26.—(/P)—It's beginning to look as though Uncle Sam may have to grow a new crop of track and field athletes before 1948 if he wants to keep those Olympic laurels on his high hat So far this winter the runners haven't done anything to get excited abou and a look at the best performances of 1945, listed in the current "Ama- tuer Athlete" only makes them look worse. OBSERVATION POST Among the 3,117 boxers' record in Nat Fleischer's new ring recorc book, which will be off the presse in about three weeks, you'll find a guy who had something like 2 fights and was knocked out 19 times . . . Explaining the inclusion of such an unimpressive record, Nat observes: "You gotta put him in; he's the University of Chicago of boxing." Sports Shots By HAROLD V RAtLlFF Asfcweiatca IPrtfss Sports' Editor DALLAS, Feb. 26.—(XP)—*hcrc will be no relaxing of the rule which forbids boys who became 18 years of age after May 1 ( 1945, to compete in the staife track ai»J field meet although they hate been eligible for all other athletics of the school year. The rule haS been amended to correct this situation but it won't be effective until 1947. Changes by referendum always must wait a year under the Texas Interscholastic league constitution. it means that a school with a star track man who became 18 after May 1, 1945, will have use of him in all meets except the state. In other WorMs he may help the school win the district and regional championships but can't do anything when the team starts shooting for the state title. Some of the schools have tried to do something about it this year. Athletic Director R. J. Kidd of the Interscholastic league received wires from 15 schools asxing that the 18- yoar rule be disregarded for this year's state meet. But Kidd has advised each that nothing can be done under the rules toward making a change this year. Kidd said schools all had been on notice that this rule would apply to the state meet May 2 and 3 this year. It will even forbid a boy who became IB on May 1, 1946, competing in the meet. Some team will be hard hit. At Adamson (Dallas) for instance, Rhea Nichols, the great half-miler and hurdler, won't be able to compete at Austin. This Was the season Adamson had high hopes of a state title until it ran across this rule Nichols would have been favored to win the half mile and possibly the low hurdles. And Adamson has flonk Of other good boys. QUOTE, UNQUOTE Jinx Tucker, veteran Waco, Texas, sports writer, here to cover tomorrow's Baylor-N. Y.

We had to get the information second-hand but anyway colorfu little Prairie Lea will probably be back for the state schoolboy basketball tournament at Austin nex week. This town of 275 souls comes nearer 100 per cent of backing its bas ketball team than 'any your corre spondent ever saw. 'Last year when Prairie Lea was sweeping its way to a second state Class A championship, one of the citizens informed me everybody had come to the tour nament except one. That person was too ill -to toe moved. Each year it takes considerabl time to find out from here if Prairii Lea has won its district title. Thi time we had to get the informatioi from Luling since nobody could b raised at Prairie Lea and school of ficials were not in town. The Lul ihg operator said, however, if tha was all I wanted to know she coul tell me and that Prairie Lea, em phatioally, had again won the cham pionship. Now the Prairie Lea boys nee< to win the regional tournament a San Marcos to'again make the tri to the state meet. They should d it. We hear Prairie Lea has prob ably a better team than last yeai The Pampa News comments editorially on the fact that in the district basketball race there it was necessary, for one team to play three games in .84 hours: and another two games-7-all, of them tough,- conference >• affairs—-iif-or- dcr : tp, mee^vthe deadline on-rdc- •cicling championship' contenders. The paper thinks this is too much basketball for teen-age boys. The interscholastic league limits the number uf games a boy may play during football season; also prohibits a boy from playing in more than one game in a five- day perinl. In basketball the only limitation is that a school can participate in only three invitation tournaments but there appears to be no limit on conference or practice gaines, cither number or time. 1 WAMT DVANCED MfltMUCW- •"1ONLY KWOWA FEW OF LIKE TUB 6NB, K>p INSTANCE/ D6 YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ive OECIOEO TO •,.
