Plalnvlew. . The fighting Pampans came from "behind, in the fourth quarter to tie the score and gain a one-point advantage, but a field goal by Neal tied the score 28 to 28. In the first extra: period, J. ft. Green, Pampa tenter, dropped one in the bucket .from the field, and again Neal was given an opportunity to tie the • score with tv/o. free throws.

(/P)—A Chicago; astrologer today studied his zodiac and made the heartening announcement 'that rain would fall in this section by Tuesday. . Beset by drouth, which has been broken only temporarily in a year, •plains residents probably will say "Oh yeah?" when they read of his fprecast. They will, however, sincerely hope he is right. James H. Harvey, the astrologer, blamed the drouth on aquarius .vyn'ich he said had been flirting with Saturn. Now that Saturn is turning attention to pices (the water sign, they say) months of greater rainfall is due. Harvey declared. H Games Asked In District 12 WACO, Feb. 2. (/P)—A motion to petition, the Texas interschplastic league to permit one game over the iO-game limit in the event of a tie at the conclusion of the district fpptljall race was passed at the an- •nual meeting of the district 12 executive committee at Waco today. The present rule prohibits a player from participating in more than 10 games during a district campaign, which is tantamount to limiting the team to 10 games. L. W. Hartsfield of Hillsboro was elected chairman of the district. LUBBOCK, Feb, 2.—A 22 to 19 victory, was garnered by the Po.mpa: Harvesters here last night n gainst the Westerners, but the triumph was rather an empty one tor .tho visitors. Mayes (Boogee) Nash, star forward) was knocked out of the rough brawl with a bruised foot. The game was one of the roughest ever played here; Lubbock had been an unknown quantity for the Harvesters. They had been doped to. win and doped to lose, according to the way one looked at the statistics. The Pampans were due to have a tough time at Plainview tonight where they will face the Bulldogs who will be aching to avenge a de-. feat suffered recently in Pampa. Nash is not scheduled to enter the fray at all. . .. , : \, Stokes Green, Harvester forward was high point man with seven tallies. J. R. Green, center, led the scoring at Ropesville Thursday night with a dozen points, and Nash was second with 11 tallies. Stephenson was high for Ropesville with 10, points and Berry ,was next with eight. Ropesville defeated Lubbock 28 to 21 at Lubbock Tuesday night. The starting lineup at Lubbock: S. Green and Nash, forwards; J. R. Green, center; Dunaway and Rose, guards. Irving, Ayer and Hassel also saw service. Local fans were hoping today that Nash's injury would not keep him, out of the season's stage chassic Thursday night when the Amarillo Golden Sandstorm blows into town, to take what Pnmpans hope will be a good beating. Nash worked like a trojan for a place on the team, from the minute he donned basketball togs, and soon dispelled all doubts that he would not land a first string berth. The extent of his injury was not mentioned to a wire received yesterday from Coach Mitchell. "Nash out with a bruised foot," was the conclusion of a terse message. However, it was assumed that the fast little forward is really "out." Meanwhile, the high school began preparations to scut the biggest, crowd of paying customers of the season Thursday night. The high school band will bo heard in public lor the first Mine since the football season closed. The pep squad will be out in their uniforms to shout encouragement. The dope is all haywire. Part of it favors Pampa and most of it favors Amarillo. Pampa beat Lubbock and Lubbock beat Amarillo, but the dope that Pampans are thinking of is that the Sandies whipped the Harvesters at Amarillo by six points —the Amarilioans probably won from Lamesa whose Toranado had Harvesterettes Defeat Canadian Girls 23 to 11 The Harvesterettes looked better than in any previous game here Friday night when • they defeated the Canadian Krazy Kats 23 to 11. It was a far different story than the one the Kats,chalked up two or three years ago when they could not only conquer the Harvesterettes but practically every other team in the Panhandle. Coach Kathleen Milam was not with her charges. She was called to Dallas Friday evening by the 111-: ness of a member of her family, it was said. Principal L. L. Sone of the high school had the girls in charge. The glaring defects in the girls' technique was not. so apaprent. The girls are still ignorant of many of the necessary fundamentals of basketball—pivoting, shodting, eluding guards. Heiskell who has been playing at guard was shifted back to forward, and she and Shields and Feltner comprised an effective scoring combination. Blythe, Jeffries, Townsend, Hunkaplllar and Perkins did the guarding. Shields and Heiskell exhibited finished basketball technique at times. Points were made as follows: Feltner 4, Shields (Canadian Takes 20 To 15 Game From Gorillas PLAYER NOT FIRMLY IN GRASP OF FOE MAY RUN 13, .Heiskell 6, Canadian,. Sarrett 7, Owen 2. Thomas 2, Tepe, Davis and Tubb were guards for Canadian. previously crushed them 34 to 9, in the same manner that they bulldozed the Harvesters. v ECLIPSE DUE TODAY . WASHINGTON, Feb. 2. (IP)— The third act in 193B's big astronomical show, but the first one visible from the .United States, will be staged tomorrow, with the moon trying to the sun for a couple of hours anfl then giving it up as a ba.d, job. That's the way it will look from earth, and is 'what ancient rnan probably wpuld ha, ye thought it was. T^i moderns, however, it will be a partial eclipsp of the sun. Ycm can see it anywhere in the United States, and most of Canada, though the time will vary from right after breakfast to after church, depending upon where you live. __ _ Texas Tech Will Play Oklahoma Aggies Ijn Fall STILLWATER, Okla..

LOUIS (/P)—There Just aren't any more modest rookies in baseball, thanks to the influence of Dizzy Dean, At least that's the opinion of Charley Barrett, scout for the St. Louis Cardinals, who is getting tired of newcomers heralding their arrival as the cure for all baseball ills. "I can remember the good old ,days 'when a yoiung ball player would write in that he'd bs happy to have a trial, and would make every effort to make good for us," Barrett said. "But you ought to read their letters now. Every young pitcher in the counti-y has a fast ball faster than Walter Johnson ever threw and a curve that makes a jug-handle look like the shortest distance between two points. They're all faster than Metcalfe, Ward and Tolan. "It's Dizzy Dean that's responsible for it all. All the kids think they have to get a horn and blow it, if they're going to get along in base- bail. I guess in a few years a ball player who doesn't think he's the best that ever put on a spiked shoe will be a freak, Anyhow I'm getting awful fed up on wind-jamming."

By BOB CAVAGNARO Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, Feb. 2. (/P)—The rules committee of the American football coaches association met for eight hours today and Its sole major recommendation was an appeal to officials to be a little slower on blowing the whistle in order to give the ball-carrier a chance to gain every possible inch., before his forward progress actually has been stoppped. Evading such radical changes as permitting forward passing from any point behind the line of scrimmage and the returning of goal posts to the goal line, 28 college and 'scholastic coiVhes voted j,o recommend the intercollegiate rules group a supplemental note to the rule governing forward progress. "We recommend," the committee proposed, "that the following supplemental note be added: 'A player who is on his feet and is not firmly in the graps of an opponent shall be permitted to run, or to make a forward or lateral pass (provided he is five yards behind the line of scrimmage) or a kick'." "A lob of officials -have asthma art)l blow their wihidtles all the time," said Herbert O. (Fritz) Crisler, Princeton coach and chairman of the committee's press group. "We're in favor of these officials giving the boys carrying the ball a chance to get as much out of every play as possible." "The game of football," the committee agreed, "is sound and safe for the players as was indicated by the fact that only one fatal injury occurred in intercollegiate football last season." The committee favored that the rule in this matter "be changed to that which prevailed. in 1933. In other words, if the receiving team commits a foul on a punt it is not offset by a member of the kicking team touching the ball before it is recovered by an opponent. It appeared that the Gorillas had the game on ice at the end of the third quarter here Friday night, but the Canadian Wildcats leaped into an irresistible rally in the fourth period that chalked up a 20 to 15 victory for the visitors. The Wildcats trailed the Pampans by three nnd four points throughout the sec- onci and third quarters. Then they abandoned attempts to work the ball into scoring position nenr the basket, and their long shots began.swishing through the hoops. Substitutes on both sides were numerous—too numerous to make the close battle the thriller that it might have been. Thomas, Canadian c*nter, was high scorer of the melee with eight points, nnd Nix, Gorilla center, who also specialized in long shots, was second with seven points. Other tallies were made as follows: " Pampa, Strickland c, 2; Jones f 4; Baker g, 2; Canadian, Helton f, 4; Caldwell g, 5; White g, 2. Lopez was the other starting forward for Canadian. Aaron Hunter, first string Harvester substitute, flashed at the gtmrd position for the Gorillas in the latter part of the second half. Frank Monroe called the game. McLean Defeats LeFors 22 to 16 Dixie Howell To Be Movie Star M'LEAN, Feb. 2.—McLean's fast- stepping Tigers went nearer the top in the sectional basketball race by defeating the LeFors Pirates 22 to Ifi here last night in one of the rougest games of the season. The McLean girls also won a conference game by defeating the LeFors Pirate Lassies 25 to 14 in another wild game. Cumberliclge, big LeFors center led the scoring parade with 11 points.. He was followed by McCarty, McLean's red-headed forward. McLean lost Tolliver on personals in the third quarter. Sylvia Young, McLean scoring ace, again led her team's attack with 12 points to lead Gloria Watson of LeFors, by two points. The McLean teams are now in an excellent position to win the sectional title and attend the distric tournament to be_played in Pampa » "*" Wyoming University is placing great faith in her four "D" back field this year. Dunn plays quarter back, Doyle and Dir halfback an Deti fullback. HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 2. (/P)—Millard (Dixie) Howell, brilliant University of Alabama football player and hero of this year's Rose Bowl, prepared today to sign a motion picture contract casting him as the star of a serial, "The Adventures of Frank Merriwell." Howell arrived secretly by airplane from Detroit two days ago. He had gone there to discuss the possibility of a baseball contract with Mickey Cochrane's Detroit Tigers. He said today he probably would postpone his baseball debut for one season to take advantage of this offer from the Universal studios. "The deal isn't complete, but I am virtually certain I'll accept it," he said. Goodnight Boys Win, Girls Lose Saturday Night Coach Harry Kelley's Gorlllns who jcourngeously play any ' and all comers among high school first strings of this section, suffered their second loss of the week-end last night on the local court when Goodnight won a 19 to 11 game. Goodnight, one of those schools where they play basketball the year around, was the peer of the Gorillas who turned in commendable performances. The tilt was preceded by a mixup Between the Harvesterettes and the Goodnight girls, which the Pam- pans won 20 to 14. It was the sec- md victory of the week-end for the ;irls. They trounced Canadian Friday night. LeBoy Jones, forward, who in the ast year has shown promise of developing into an all-around athlete, ed the scoring attack for the Go- •illas with six points. His eye for the basket, as on Friday night, was good in distance shots. Oliver and Baker, guards, each looped a bucket from the field. Keyser made a field goal. Coach Kelley used six other players as folllows:- Strickland c, Mix g, Kitchens g, Bailey c, Gee f, VIcGuire f. The Goodnight scores were made as follows: Smith f, 6; Williams c, 4; Bailey f, 7; Garland g, 2; Goldston and Posey were in the lineup ar, guard and forward respectively.

Hunkaplllar, Jeffries and Blythe were starting guards, and Perkins and O'Hara were substitute guards. Townsend was sub forward.

W)—Contrary to his own previous statement that he had come to terms Dizzy Dean, ace pitcher of the world champion St. Louis Cardinals, today disclosed he was a holdout and had demanded $25,000 for his 1935 contract. Dizzy said that when he announced some time ago that he had come to terms with the club ho was under the impression that was what he was going to get. When he finally got his contract figures disengaged from those of outside activities, principally one for a comic strip advertising food | products, he discovered to his sur- j prise that he was to get only $17,500 for his baseball services. "I haven't signed a contract and I'm not going to sign one for less han $25.000," he said. "That offer stands for two days and then my demand will be for $30,000. "Sam Brcadon and Branch Rickey are coming in tomorrow, and I'm ;oing to go into conference with them then. They'd better come across, or else—." "They promised to get me a good contract for this outside work," Dean said, "and I got a good one sut I dpn't see what that has to do with my baseball playing. "If I'm not worth $25,000 to the Dardinals then I don't want to play for them." slip away. Incidentally, he Is Coach Elmer Layden's ace football spy.
