Writer Challenges Director to Due] PARIS/ Feb. 10 (/P)—A newspapei writer today challenged a film director to a duel ever his right to criticize a film scene and the challenge was accepted. The two men involved are Ber trand de Jouvenel, member of : famous family, and Julien Duvivier the film director. The latter named as seconds Harry Bauer, character actor, and Charles Vldrac, writer, to meet those of de Jouvenel to prepare the details. < The journalist visited a studio and watched the filming of a scene He then wrote an article which the director said in a letter to newspapers ridiculed his work. He questioned the critic's right to comment on one scene before the whole work Is finished. Jouvenel retorted he merely used "a newspaper man's right to describe what he sees." Capt. George (Lammie) Theo- doratos, 240-pound Washington State College tackle, won "iron- man" honors on the Cougar team last season when he saw action for 396 minutes out of a, possible 480 minutes in 8 games. Baseball Loop Meet Postponed Inability of the Borger delegation to attend the meeting of managers of teams in the proposed Panhandle semi-pro league last night in the Schneider hotel, caused continuation of the meeting until March 4 In Borge.r, when it is expected final plans will be made for tho lea'gue. An accident at the Huber Carbon company's plant yesterday made it impossible for representatives of that club to attend tlxe meeting. Lack of time in which to make arrangements for organization of the team and for a playing location would have caused a, postponement of final arrangements had Boraer attended. Those present at last night's meeting discussed the player limit, length of the season, price of admission, and other factors to be decided at the next meeting. Election of officers was also postponed until the meeting in Borger. Attending the session last night were L. J. Ward and Jack Bellah LeFors; C. B. Green, Glenn Green, and John Holley, Amarillo; Harold Miller, Grover Seitz, and Harry E Hoare, Pampa. -© Teachers Barely Won From Team Few Weeks Ago The old guard of basketball, coaches and former college stars Will be seen in action here tomorrow night when the Pampa faculty quintet meets the 1 Groom Independents, one of the best teams in this section of the country.

Following a 3-day session at Absecon, N. J., William S. Langford, secretary of the rules governing body, announced that this committee had turned thumbs down on the majority of the proposed changes, which would have turned the game into a modified form of basketball. One concession was made to the advocates 'of great latitude for the passing attack. The so-called "dead ball" rule was qualified so that a runner who is on his feet even though held by an opponent, may run, pass, or kick until the whistle is blown. ''This," said the committee's statement, "will give, a runner who has been tackled but not thrown a somewhat greater opportunity, to break away or make a pass, which Will further encourage the open game." Efforts to minimize existing penalties on attempted lateral passes or to permit forward passing from any point behind the line of scrimmage: as in pro football failed to impress the committee. The other two alterations are designed to cover technicalities in the existing rules. One clarifies the rule governing the interchanging of linemen and backs by defining the I positions of the center, guards, and tackles as "those occupied by these players when they originally entered the game, with the further provision that. the field captain musl designate, upon request of officials which players actually are the linemen." The general rule under which fouls committed by both teams offset each other was changed to Include the following exception: "Should a punted ball be illegally touched (downed) and then there ba a personal foul by opponents, the captain of the kicking team may refuse the offsetting penalty. In such case the ball would belong to the receiving team at : the spot where it was allegedly touched." YESTERDAY'S POISON TODAY'S BALM MONROE, La., (*)—To the mystification of the commissioner of streets and parks, employment hunters suddenly swamped his office to apply for jobs. To prove there were jobs, they brandished a newspaper "advertisement." It said a shortage of city prison labor had made It necessary to increase the paid street force. A closer examination of the "ad" revealed the heading: "Fifteen Years Ago."

Mobeetie's And Allison's Girls To Play Series ALLISON, .Feb. 18—The Allison and Mobeetie girls' basketball tcnms Will play a series to decide tho winner of their section and the team winning two out of three games will go into the district race. The opening gun will be fired at Mobeetie 1 Tuesday night at 7:30 O'clock with the second game scheduled in Allison at 8 o'clock Thursday night. If a third game is necessary, it will be played on a neutral court Monday night. Both teams have impressive records for the season. Each has lost five games, with Allison having a slight edge on the dope with a win over Mobeetie.

DAYTONA BEACH.Fla., Feb. 19 M>}—Development of a revolutionary motor >by American manufacturers under the auspices of the United States government, may end Great Britain's land speed supremacy even more definitely than consistently bad weather has halted Sir Malcolm Campbell and his great racing car, Bluebird, on Daytona's beach. By the end of 1930 there is every possibility that no matter what speed the Englishman makes above the present record of 272.108. it will be slow as compared with the alms of a radically new port plant, now under development at the factories of two of the automobile industry's largest engine manufacturers. Specifications for this motor, a ftian close to the situation told the Associated. Press today, were issued secretly by the United States war department over a year ago The engine, so flat that it will fit into an airplane wing, is not over a yard long, weighs comparatively little, miist h,ave no more than 12 cylinders, set in two banks, and develop close to 2,000 horsepower. Already, it was reported, one manufacturer has succeeded in developing 158 horsepower in a single cylinder, a total for the engine of 1,896 horsepower. Campbell's British engine, developed with government assistance, is rated at 2,500 horsepower, but its weight contributes a large part more thtm six tons of rolling weight that Is Bluebird in action. American experts question, too, that the British motor, finest of its kind ever developed, actually generates a full 2,500 horsepower. The American car these engineers envisage will have two of these small motors, developing a total of 4,000 horsepower, and the problem then will be to find a place to run It. PERFORMS IN OPENI When the 1935 football season rolls around at Notre Dame it's almost a certainty Coach Elmer Layden will drill his charges on the importance of the point after touch- clown. The Irish made 17 touchdowns last fall, but added only six extra points, and lost to Texas 7-6 by the margin of the extra point.
