Kingsmill Pho. 1240 Confusion Reigns On Question of Mexican Baseball •T WEST PALM BEACH, March 5— (IP) —All is confusing on the Latin- American baseball front, so far as Commissioner Albert C. "Happy" Chandler is concerned. Before leaving for Cuba today, baseball's new head man confessed that he did not know what—If anything—would be done about the big leaguers who 'ire jumping to the "outlaw" Mexican league. He said, however, he was in process of making an extensive investigation, that each case would be considered individually, and implied he might even make a trip to Mexico if it were necessary to do so to get complete understanding of the situation. "One thing I can tell you for sure" ho said, "is that there is no rule of organized baseball which automatically suspends a man for competing against ineligible players. "I've seen It written that such a player is automatically suspended for live years, or even for life, but I've read the rules and I can.'t find anything like that. "So far as I know it is entirely up to the commissioner to pass judgment on each individual case. When and if a man who has been playing in nn outlaw league applies for reinstatement. That is what I expect to do. So far, no player has risked to bo reinstated." Increase in Night Games Is Reported NEW YORK.

Houston Tennis Meet Gets Two Top Players HOUSTON, Texas, March 5— WFJ —Bryan (Bitsy) Grant of Atlanta, three-times :hampion, and Billy Talbert, of Cincinnati, the nation's No. 2 player, will compete in the twelfth annual River Oaks country By HAROLD V. RAtLlFF Associated tress Sports Editor DALLAS, March 5.— (IP) —The twenty-sixth annual Texas interscholastic league basketball tournament will be held at Austin this weekend. If it lives up to expectations—and there's ho reason to think it won't, what with all the interest shown—it will again be one of the state's top sports spectacles. All of Which brings this question- How come Texas college basketball is behind other areas of the nation? You ,1ust don't figure on a tearr from Texas or the Southwest beinr in a position to lay claim to the national title. The answers are numerous. MOP' important is that while a lot of boy nlay the • game in Texas, it's only the past few years that the trend has been toward specialized coaches In other words, too many school? have looked upon basketball as a minor sport and did doubling-up for its coaching. Maybe the assistant football mentor would direct thp hoys on the maples although he knew little about the ganle. Possibly some member of the faculty who liked basketball would be job of showing the play it. assigned the boys how to club invitation tennis April 15-21. tournament JOE LETS 'EM HIT SARASOTA, Pla., March 5— (IP)-Manager Joe Cronin knows just Basketball wasn't a paying sport until recent years. Football always has been. Thus the emphasis went on football. Basketball, baseball and track could shift for themselves. It was customary to have teams in these sports, so teams were had but no one got excited about it and tried to fire the coach if his cage, diamond or cinder path sqund didn't win. The result was that the colleges tot good football players but candidates for the other sports weren't so hot since they hadn't been taught the fundamentals. Aside from the coaching and money angles, another thing that entered into the situation was: Football in Texas is a four-months proposition. In most other areas they quit when the first blasts of winter roll in. So. while Texas is producing great football players, the other sections are developing top basketball players. (In the tournament at Austin Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be 24 teams. Eight compete for the class AA title, eight for the class A crown and eight for class B laurels. But it's going to be some years before the winning record of Athens high school can be equalled or surpassed. Athens took five titles. Nearest approach to this has been El Paso hicsh, which twice won the cham- nionshio and got it another year when the winner was ruled ineligible. But El Paso isn't back for the st^te tournament, so can't get close enough to Athens' record to forecast that it will be equalled any time soon.
