Van Hoven- berg run, its boblet re'cords .already shattered in two days bl death-defying performances, 'echoed today .with .the crackling of four- man bobs as the battle for places on Uncle Sam's 1936 Olympic team reached new heights . The. largest gallery since the 1932 Olympics focused its attention on 26-year-old Ivan Brown of nearby Keene Valley, who turned in the astounding single heat time of one minute and 54.84 seconds for the mile and half in placing first in the two man trials over the weekend. His superlative skill in handling his boblet over the week-end gave his. a four heat total of seven minutes and 45,69 seconds, almost five seconds better than the record sel last, week in the national A. A. U ..championships. Each of his four heats was faster than the time made by J. Hubert Stevens of Laki Placid in winning the Olympic two man title for the United States. Gilbert Colgate Jr., of New York former Yale university athlete piloted his sled to the same tota time as Brown, but Olympic rulei provide the single fastest. : » Tornado Wrecks Arkansas Must Face Jack Gray This Week-End (By The Asnoclftted Press.)

The undefeated string the Pork- rs have recorded Is likely to be ilackened with a licking in the two- game series, for Jack Gray, in- incible Steer forward, showed all he earmarks of his old self Saturday night at Houston in caging 21 joints against Rice. Critics look for he Porkers to drop at least one of he two important games. Southern Methodist, in s econd >lace and gathering speed, are doped to take the Texas Aggies at lollege Station Friday night but ate no better than even against Rice Institute's Owls Saturday night at Houston. Baylor rates a nod over Texas ihristlan in the battle of the basement at Fort Worth Saturday night. Rice drubbed Texas, 49 to 36; Arcansas licked Baylor twice, 37 to 27 ind 48 to 30; Southern Methodist defeated Texas Christian, 36 to 20; then pasted the Aggies, 44 to 21, and the Aggies took it out on Texas Christian, 40 to 30, in last week's games.

Worn threads of speculation snapped Saturday by the court's announcement that it will announce no opinions today, were spun together again, quickly here. The possibility of a gold ruling tomorrow was suggested by the fac that all markets in this country wil be closed. This would give the government 24 hiours to take steps to meet any situation arising from a verdict. Some officials, who declined to be quoted by name, expressed concern however, over advantages which such timing of the decision mlgh give foreign speculators They pointed out foreign markets wil operate as usual tomorrow and some of the exchanges overseas will open the next day five hours ahead o those in the United States. Many observers regarded nex Monday, February 18, as the likelies date for a verdict. That will be a regular opinion day, at ths end o which the justices plan to reces until March 4. Pondering whether or not con gress had the right to invalidat promises to pay in gold or its equiv alent, contained in an estimatec $100,000,000,000 of- public and prl vate contracts, the court has shown no indications of haste in delivering the momentous decision.

"Sure, I know it will draw," said Pronip. "80 would'football, on rpll- er skates.

Cronin sizes up the America league race this season as a '"merr scramble" with 1 six clubs in th thick of it.

The move, recently advo- ated by the Pampa Dally NEWS o stimulate baseball in this see- on, Is hoped to bring six strong earns into a league. Managers and sponsors of all ,rong baseball teams in this see- on of the Panhandle are invited o attend the meeting. Officers, in- luding a president, vice-president, ecretary, and treasurer, win be lected if it is voted to organize uch a league. Discussion of the chedule and form of league opera- ion would also be in order. Already the 'fast Pampa Road Gunners, Coltexo of LeFors, Philps of Borger and Huber of Borer, have thrown their bats and loves into the ring and announced eady. The Shamrock Oil company has ecided that Amnrillo should have baseball team, nnd with the sup- iort of a few interested citizens let last week and appointed a base- all committee composed of W. M. McCarty, Dr. T. B. Jones, Bill Becchler, Frank Farley, Glen Greene, John Holley, nnd C. B. 3reen to start selling signs on the ence at Metro park in the first nove to raise money for lights and earn expenditure. The purpose of tho Amarillo- Shamrock baseball club, according ,o Dan Sheehan of the Shamrock ompany, is not to make a lot of noney but to bring baseball back f> Amarillo, in past years one of he bcsti baseball cities in the outhwcst. The Shamrock Oil company has \ number of well known baseball ilayers on their pay roll, and te making space for more players in he organization. The shortening of vorking hours and necessity of placing more men to work Will make the team possible. "We may not have the best team n the world the first year, but we will present a team capable of claying the best teams in the southwest," W. M. McCarty, Amarillo spokesman, said. President Karl Roff and Manager Grover Seitz of the Pampa load Runners have not announced ;heir plans for the 1935 season. The Soad Runners, strongest team In /he southwest in 1934, have lost several star players. Among those who will be missing from the Roac Gunner lineup this season will be Freddy Bi^ckeU, sen&utional outfielder who will report to Albany and maybe go to Washington; Whitey Vaughn, who has moved to Michigan; Gordon Nell, first baseman and slugger, and Pete Stegman, who have gone to Coltexo of LeFors; Don Ben, catcher, who has returned to Oklahoma, and Howarc Wells, shortstop, gone to Forl Worth. LeFors has, on paper, one of the strongest teams to date. The Col- texo lineup, which has 'not been officially released, will reveal many new faces. Huber of Borger has been strengthening it is reported Phillips of Borger is also on the warpath according to information being received here. The question confronting the league sponsors is where a sixth team can be found. That questioi may be settled Friday night, when the sixth team may develop.

Games Will Be Held Saturday NEW'YORK, Fob. 11. (IP}—The ew York A. C. Games, oldest of he indoor meets, will be renewed or the 67th time Saturday night with one world's record virtually n the bag and four more in serious [anger. As track men have it doped out, he world's indoor record for the hot put will almost certainly go nto the discard and the indoor ecords for the half mile, the mile, he high jump and the pole vault also may be displaced. Jack Torrance, 300-pound behemoth from Louisiana state, is the bogey man" who promises to do he present shot put record no good whatever. Torrance holds the outdoor record of 57 feet one inch and Sexton's indoor record of 52 feet B% inches appears to have no hance whatever of surviving the southerner's mighty tosses. Lloyd Harm's indoor half mile record of 1:512-5 will be subjected ,o attack by Charles (Chuck) Hornbostel, Indiana's crack half-miler and perhaps by Elton Brown, na- rional junior 800 meter champion from Pittsburg (Kan.) Teachers college. Glenn Cunningham's mile recor< of 4.08.4 always is threatened when Cunningham, Bill Bonthron and Gene Venzke get together 'as they will in the Baxter mile.

THIRST CHACO'S SEVEREST TRIAL RELATESBRITON War In Desert Described By Young Soldier COACH HOPES TO RUB OUT DEFECTS IN NEXT 12 DAYS With the championship of the Panhandle Class A basketball league safely tucked away In their own bailiwick, the Harvesters and their coach, Odus Mitchell, today looked ahead to the district tournament which will be held here in exactly a dozen days. The fact that two more games remain to be played in the Panhandle Class A league cannot disturb the Harvesters leadership with six game won and two lost. Each of the other four teams, Aniarillo, Lubbock, Plainvlew and Borger, has lost at least three games. Amarillo will play at Borger this week, and Lubbock will go to Plainview. Both the Sanclles and the Westerners are scheduled to lose their final games. Plainview has Improved mightily in the last few weeks, beating the Sandiss on the Amarillo court. Borger should whip the Sandies on their own court. Saturday night the (Etai'vcsiters will play the Canyon Eagles on the local court. Coach Mitchell today was trying to match a game here with Hedlcy for Friday night. If he does not succeed he will seek another foe for the home court. In any event, there will be games here Friday night. Heclley's team Is reported to be less potent than last season when it won the district tournament from Pampa. The 18 to 17 victory over Borger Saturday night did not end the Harvester-Bulldog rivalry. Borgei Is almost certain to win the Spear- man-Pcrryton-Borger championship for the'right to enter the district meet here. If Pampa and Borger should meet in the tourney anothei terrific battle is promised, with the Harvesters only slightly favored Pampa has a good chance to win the tournament for the good reason that the Harvesters have whipped all' the strong contenders, but this fact in itself means little due to the improvement of the teams. Coach Mitchell is not at all satisfied with his team yet. The boys have not reached the peak, and he will drive them hard during this week and next. The boys still have habits on the floor that have almost proved disastrous at times He hopes to correst those glaring faults in the next two weeks. Thi guard position which Edward Scot holds down in the starting lineup has developed into a troubulou situation. When Scott is not playing Rose is, and last Saturday nigh when neither performed satisfac torily, Mitchell sent in Aaron Hunter, a second stringer, who im mediately justified ithe coach's choice by sinking the prettiest fiel goal of the game. Hunter was instructed to shoo from all angles of the court. He dii so, missing pretty ones. Finally, h. assumed an impossible stance and the ball swished without touchin, the ring. The game was much rougher thar the one with Lubbock Friday night and that's saying a whole lot. A BY GEORGE JORDAN, Associated Press Foreign Staff. SANTIAGO, Chile, Feb. 11 (/flit took Ralph Codfna, young English adventurer, one month to convince Bolivian authorities that he was not a spy, then they made him a ieu- ,enant in the army and sent him into the Chaco Boreal to fight against Paraguay. "What is tl^e worst of the fight- ng?" I asked him. "The thirst and the heat,' he said. He called the Chaco a solid waste of brush, shadeless trees, and giant cacti. Nature takes 60 per cent of the war's thousands of dead, preying on the men with heat, mosquitoes, nalaria, cholera:, dysentery, unbearable thirst, and venomous snakes and insects. There Is danger from the enemy bullets, said Codlna, but there Is worse danger, when you hack your way through jungle, from the deadly coal snakes, no bigger than a; pencil, whose bite is regarded as certain death. Not so deadly, but much more numerous, are rattle snakes and the reptile called the aspi. About 80,000 men arc fighting in a climate where Codina has seen ;he thermometer reach 131 degrees, ,hcn change within a few hours to freezing. Men in his command who threw away even their precious mosquito nets to escape tho heat suddenly found themselves shivering in south winds sweeping across the pampas from Tierra del Fucgo and the antarctic beyond. When it rains, Lhe desert becomes a swamp wiU> men knee-deep in water. "Most of the fights are between patrols,' Codina said. "You probably never see the men you fight. You go by your hearing, listening for the other fellow cutting his way through the brush with machetes just as you arc doing. When he sounds to be withjin 30 or 40 feet of you, you blaze away through the trees with ma'chinc guns and submachine guns like gangsters cio. "If you hear a yelp, you hit something. If bullets come back at you, you did not' GOLFERS TREK BACK TO FINISH OAKMONT MEET one time, the teams stopped to watcli a threatened fight in tho grandstand which was precipitated when a Pampa fan yelled, during 11 quiet moment, "If you want to get rough, why doncha get rough in football." POTATO YIELD HUGE PLAINVIEW, Feb. 11 (/P)—Although he realized no cash profit, Albert Sammann, who farms northeast of here, made enough money out of his white -potato crop to buy a potato digger and u potato planter. Sammann watered his 30-acrc crop 18 times and used about 2,700 gallons of gasoline and 15 gallons of oil at a cost of about $225. His yield was about 240,000 pounds when he sold for $1 per hundred pounds. ALLRED TO TALK AUSTIN, Feb. 11 W)—Governor James V. Allred said today he planned another "fire side chat" with the people of Texas over a statewide radio hookup at 7:45 tomorrow. The talk will deal with state affairs. GLENDALE. Cnlif., Feb. 11. (!?}— Newly crowned champion of the Agua Caliente open, Henry Picard, 28-year-old Hershey.Pa., pro, headed the parade back here today for the completion of unfinished golf business, the Oakmont Nassau tournament. Picard, in his first appearance in the winter tours of the Californias stepped cut with a 70 on the final round of the below-the-border championship yesterday to finish with a 286 total, winning his second important title in 11 years of play. His prize money was $1,000. Because of his fine finish at Agua Caliente with sub-par 70s on the last two rounds, Picard was favored to capture the title here. He was in front by two points when the tournament was rained out a week ago with two rounds of match play remaining. Second to Picard in tho close finish yesterday were Willie Goggin, San Francisco, and Harry Cooper, Chicago, with 72-hole totals of 288, to get $500 each of the $5,000 prize money. Ky Laffoon, Chicago and Jim Dcmnret, Galveston, Tex., tied for fourth, four strokes back of Picard. They collected $385 each. Four were deadlocked at 201. There were Wiffy Cox, the defending champion, Harold McSpadcn, Kansas City, Kns., Jimmy Hines, Long Island, and Byron Nelson, Texarkana, • Texas. Their winnings were $257.50 each. MoSpaden, in posting a 67 yesterday also picked up $63.40 as ten per cent of the pari-muluel lake thereby increasing his earnings to $2,884.65 as the leading wage earner of the winter golfing army. „«.
