u, DAttY HARVESTER CAGERS TO PLAY EITHER PANHANDLE OR HEDLEY FRIDAY NIGHT STIFF BUTTLE PLAY-OFF BEING HELD FOR TWO-COUNTY TITLE The Harvester basketball team's schedule for Friday night is all twisted up again. This morning. Coach Odus Mitchell was certain that his Harvesters would meet a worthy foe Friday night, but he Was not certain whether the opponents would be the Hedley Owls or Coach Pat Gerald's Panhandle Panthers. He was informed by telephone this morning that Clarendon and Hedley are playing off a three- game series for the championship Of DOnley county. This situation camfe about after Clarendon had Inadvertantly dropped a game to the Goodnight team, champions of Armstrong county, who didn't have a chance at tWe two-county title anyway because of previous games lost. Tiiat left OTarendiOn and Hedley tied. The Owls and Bronchos then decided it would take the best two out of three games to produce a Champ. Last night the two teams played the first game With claren- don winning 43 to 34. They will play tigriin tonight and if Clarendon wins again, Pampa's foe will be Hedley. ,If the OWls emerge victors, Panhandle will play the Harvesters. Now Panhandle, champion of Oar- son and 6(ray counties, excluding Pampa, olaife A school, will play the winner of the OWl-Broncho series for the right to represent the four counties in the district tournament here Feb. 22-23. 'This final play-off g'ame will be played either Friday or Saturday, depending upon whether dlai'eridon wins tonight. Regardless of which. team the Harvesters play, they will clash against a strong club. Both Panhandle and Hedley have been piling up big scores all season, and it Is a fact that the Harvesters have failed 'to score over 30 points in any single game against a first class foe. Teams that amass the big scores chalked up by Panhandle and Hedley are bound to be good, Mitchell believes. The Harvesters scored more than a point a minute yesterday against the' Gorillas. J. R. Green, as he did the day before, went like a house a-fire. Scott showed much improvement. He broke faster and didn't dribble too long. Stokes Green is now developing quickly. Hassell and Ayer showed up well among the subs.

'ECIAlIST practice Utfited to the tt^nepr' oi QqAtytfinwy* q|i&fla^ii»a W Boom No. 3 First National fcanfc ?«t» Poodle With A n Title Wins Dog Show c- NEW YORK, Feb. 14. (/P)—The "top" in American dogdom is, of all things, a poodle with this tiring title—Champloh Nonsoe Due de la Terrace of Blakeen. Nonsoe DuC de la Terrace was •chosen best dog last night in the Westminster Kennel club show. The selection was greeted by muffled riflndclapping by the expert rlngslders. But from the gallery, where sat those uneducated in the finer points of the fancy, but who think thdy knoW a dog when they see one, came u chorus of boos and exclamations of astonishment. A specialized sense of appreciation was necessary to recognize the virtues of Nonsoe Due de la Terrace. He was shaggy in spots, clipped bare in others. He resembled somewhat an. undersized lion that had fallen Into a tub Of whitewash. In Winning the coveted title of "Best In show, all breeds," the poodle, owned by the Blakeen kennels of New York, downed five other dogs, survivors of group competition. . Nonsoe Due de la Terrace made history by his victory. Only Once before in the history of the Westminster, America's premier kennel show, has a non-sporting dog been adjudged best of all breeds. CONDITIONING OF GRIDDERS IS STRESSED Setting Up Exercises Used To Start Off Spring's Grid Training Program. Harvester football prospects are fast learning that there is more to going out for football than kicking a ball around, loafing, and wearing a uniform. Line Opach Harry Phillips, new assistant to Odus Mitchell, is doing the teaching. Coach Phillip's is a firm believer in conditioning of football players. Yesterday afternoon he hopped from his car to see 45 boys passing, puntr ing, tackling, and loafing. He immediately called them into a circle and for 15 minutes put them thru setting up exercises that had them panting for breath when the caU was 'given to break up into groups according to positions. More boys were expected to report for spring training this afternoon. Only a few Gorillas were in uniform yesterday. Most of the boys out have had little or no experience. There are midgets and there are some big fellows. One little fellow couldn't find a suit small enough, so had one cut down. The giant of the outfit is "Moose" Hartman, 214 pounds of he-man. The prospects will remain out fpr two weeks, when a scrimmage will be called. The most promising boys will be kept out to practice with the Harvester lettej-men and Gorillas who are now out for basketball and track. 1 The youngsters are showing a willingness to learn. They pay strict attention to Coach Phillips and do their best to follow; his instructions. Borger Rotary Club Presents Program Here An interesting program was provided at the meeting of : the Hota'ry club Wednesday when members of the Borger club presented the program. Paul Pottdr, president oif the Borger club, presided and presented the program. A talk on the great characters born in February was given by John Loftin with special emphasis given the lives of Washington, Edison and Lincoln.- s Greetings were given by the Rev. J. N. jfTujit and music was furnished by Mitt Vance in vocal solos with Mrs. L. M. Draper accompanying. Fred Cullum and Clyde Fatheree were visitors. Henry Gerhard was introduced as a new member of the club. ffr. MITCHELL AND MONROE LEAD SCORING ATTACK WtfEELER CQVOTV RECORDS Oil filings'fpr Tuesday, Jan. 12: Mb.—fir. H.

'" - '-'.' ..'BE : "Old Man" COiich Odus Mltch- cU, the fatlidr of three children, aaid ytiimg Prank Monroe whi> wen a bcaiity Cohtcst when a .baby, led the Pampa pcdagogs in a scoring ipa'raflc last night to annihilate the McLean faculty 40 to 22 here. Each scored 16 points, eight field goals a-plece. They might have been the stars of the game but Coach Harry Phillips, new Harvester line coach, stole the show, for that's what the game became—a highly dnjoyable show- after It became apparent that the Pampans Had the visitors ridiculously out-classed. The stocky line coach performed like a wrestler. On the court he's as funny as Dutch Mantell Is on the mat. What with Phillips' buffoonery and Harry Kelley's clowning, the Spectators had plenty to laugh at—and much to bring thrills. It's well-nigh inconceivable that Ooach Mitchell still possesses much of the basketball cunning for which he was famous years ago at West Texas State Teachers college, but he does, and when he chooses to strain a point, or to give the old legs a good working out, he's a eager deluxe. He can still stand flat-footed and jump three or four feet. McLean's best player was Loter who scored 12 points. He was a foot taller than Mitchell but the latter cut-jumped him at center when he (chose to. McCarty, McLean forward, scored five points. Harry Kelley sank one basket, Dick Dennard two, Bennett two. Anderson, manager of the team, played at intervals and gave the boys a convincing pep talk at the half, using a few hard words, stranger, despite the fact that the score was 30 to 12. The crowd was small but larger than expected, and it's a prediction that the next time the profs, play, which will be next week against a strong team, a big crowd will be out. Many in the crowd were young partisans of Monroe, his 12-year old hero-worshipping pupils who think that what he doesn't know and can't do about basketball could be put in a spider's eye and still have enough room to hide a truck, and they are about right. Others in the McLean lineup were Tolliver, forward; McHaney, Murdoek and Hunt, guards.

(/P)-:Lou Qehrlg Isn't a holdout—yet. Back from a world tour, the New York Yankees' Iron-man first baseman declined to admit anything except that he was aiming to get "a lot more" money than last year. His two-year contract, at $23,000 a year, has expired. "Of course I'm no holdout," Geh- lig said. "I haven't even seen my contract. I don't know what ths club is offering me." He will know sometime today if he goes down to the New Rochelle postoffice and picks up his mail. It has been held there awaiting his return. Several baseball writers suggested to Lou that the Yankees' new offer might not call for much more than the salary for which he has worked ;he last two years. Lou and his wife looked serious. "You know I've got a new man at'er now," he said, and smiled a his wife. "We feel that I've earne something in the record that's be hind me and the one that's yet t be made. I had a big year In 1934— battling title, most runs driven i and most home runs, 49. "I won't be 32 until June and figure I've still my best years ahe'a or me. Babe Ruth was 33 when h set his home-run record of 60 1 1927. I'm going after that record.' Officials In the Yankees' offic apparently are not worrying ove Gehrig. Business Manager Ed Bar row declined to comment on reporl that Gehrig would ask for $35,000 nor would he indicate what the clu had offered. "Wait till I talk with him," Bar row said. IK W TO FIGHTFEB.M GOLTATHS OF RING TO BOX IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN NEW YORK, 'Feb. 14. (/P) — A barker from a circus side show is all the Madison Square Garden will need to complete the picture when ?rimo Oarnera and Ray Impellit- .iere climb through the ropes Feb. 22 for a ten-round bout, A circus barker could do a good job with it! "Ladies and gentlemen! Feast four eyes on 'em. A quarter of a ion or human flesh 'and blood! They're human they feel, they 'ialk but boy they are big. "In this corner we have Primo 3arnera, the former world's heavyweight champion, weighing 265 pounds and, in this corner, Ray Im- jelU.ttlere, who tips the scales at 260. Draw up, olose, folks, one and all, and see the show." You almost have to go back to ;he 'days when the Greeks fought )are-fisted to find a match between wp men as large as Da Preem and "The Imp." The bout was sanctioned yesterday by "the New York state athletic .pmmission, although Commissioner 3111 Brown refused to he a party p. It. Jack Dem'psey prdbably will efei-ee.

Then a few years ago, "The Imp, still an unknown quantity, wa brought out anci up by Harry Len ny. Muldoon favored a meeting be tween the goliaths, each measurln more than six feet seven inches, One of his last acts on the com mission was to sanction the bout but it never took' place. Carnera recently came back from an unimpressive tour of Soutl America, appearing mostly in ex hjbitio'ns.

He wns knocked off stride so badly that the leader, speedy Ted Clark, was five lengths in front before Jockey Raymond (Sonny) Workman had the big chestnut settled down again. The Whitney star raced out to Contention on, the back stretch going into fourth and then made his move on the second turn. Under mild urging he swept wide into the stretch.and challenged Sweeping Light and Ted Clark. To the wire they came, almost neck and neck. Ted Clark couldn't stand the pace, dropping back. Pampa, Men To Attend Baseball Meet Pampa and LeFors will be represented at a baseball meetings In Arnfiriilo tomorrow Wght when an attempt Will be made to organize a semi-p'fo league.

Pampa Road Runner officials have made no public statement about Sweeping Light stood off the rush and won, ridden out. Equipoise came out of the test in fine shape. Thomas J. Healey, the trainer, was well satisfied with his showing. He felt the bumping the big chestnut received was unavoidable.
