"Some college boys — the ones with real talent—could go into the professional ring and make good." he adds, "But unless they're extra good, I advise them to stay out and pursue the careers for which they prepared in college." Houck says the average college boxer has no professional ambitions but takes to the sport only because he likes it and feel:; he would like to compete for his college. The Penn State coach says that of the long line of champions that ho has developed, only Allie Wolff, Steve Hamas and Billy Soos went into the pro boxing game. Both Hamas and Soos advanced to the big time before they withdrew from competition.

Competing in the state tournament at Austin sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the 13-year-old Garcia won five of six matches and the right to represent Texas at the National Marble Tournament in Boys Town. Neb.. June 25-26. One of the best schoolboy sports activities of the year is the American Legion Junior Baseball program. Back in 1942 It appeared about to die a natural death. There was just one team that year and it, couldn't compete nationally because the rules say there must be at least four teams in a state. j, E. McClain. aepanment athletic officer, took over the program in, 1943. There has been a big increase each year. Now there are some 125 teams in the state battling for the- right to compete in the regional tournament. One thing the Legion has done is to equalize the competition. Cities and towns having less than 30.000 population may obtain players from, nearby cities and towns so long as the total population of all towns involved does not exceed 30.000. County and even state lines may be crossed. In cities from 30,000 to 60,000 the players must live within the city limits or if outside the city limits have been enrolled In a school in that city on Jan. 1. Cities over 60,000 may enroll from no more than one public high school and one parochial, private, technical or vocational school. Three of lust year's, four divisional winners in the state came from com- partively small towns. The program declined for several reasons in the early forties. One reason was that the Legion would not permit outside help and barred high school . coaches from tutoring legion teams unless they were Legion members. Many coaches didn't want players they were bringing along slowly thrown into fast play. Some players also were confused by different styles of coaching. Recently high school coaches have been allowed to direct Legion teams without being Legion members. DOUBLE PAID OFF WESTBURT, N.
