The Rebels will attempt to overcome the tragedy that ' overtook them in their first conference game, which was also away from home. Lee was edged by San Antonio, 58-57, in a thriller at the Alamo City. If Lee does as expected and turns back the Austin quintet, it will put a great importance on the San Antonio game here Saturday. Jan. 30. San Antonio is currently leading the conference with a perfect record. , • -. : The Rebels hav e gone up against 13 .tough opponents so. far this season and won six. In their last game, the team soundly trimmed McNeese of Lake Charles, La., 58-51, in non-conference tilt. Terry Page, ,5-U.; guard, is leading the team in scoring with 111 points, closely followed by Wayne Peterson with 102. The Rebels have nine more games on the schedule. The regular season will end with the Mc- 'Neese game Feb. 23. Joe Enqe! Draws Crowds Another Method For Baseball Success ATLANTA, Jan. 22 —UP—Jolly Joe Engel didn't leave much of a mark as a big league baseball player, but he mastered another phase of the game—how to make it pay off at the box office. As a pitcher for Washington back in 1912. Joe managed to get by, but he didn't set any records. As a scout for the Senators Joe was pretty good. But it wasn't until he was named president of the Chattanoga Lookouts in the Class AA Southern Association in 1930 that Joe found his niche. Engcl by-passed the standard route to success. The rule sa.vs it takes a pennant-winner to draw crowds, hut Engcl—who spent seven years in vaudeville—figured a gund show would pay just as well. Jos will be going into his 25th yeai^ at Chattanooga this season. During that period the Lookouts have claimed only three pennants, but Chattanooga's attendance has been exceptional. "People like a winner, sure, but we can't all be winners," said Engel. "Fans also l' k e a good show and that's one thing you can dig up." In- his day, Engel has due up perhaps some of tho most spectacular "pre-garne" shows in the business. Joe's famed "elephant hunt." which featured southern- bred "cannibals" by the hundreds, a few choice "African" dances and finally the stalking and killing of a stuffed matodon. went over so big that Joe put it on the road with his Lookouts. The jovial native of Washington also clime close to topping the {jive-away fare when he lured "25 : 000 fans to tile biiwl park to take a chance on a house, a lot and a garage containing a new car. . Engel's latest crowd-attracler is called "bank night." Just before the start of tlv game an armored car—loaded with money, all..- in silver—is driven on to the diamond. The fan with the lucky ticket is given a shovel and a bag. He can keep all he can carry from the pitcher's mound to ;thg stands in one load. , ' . .Engel'seldom .has been able to •curb his enthusiasm to just one activity, at a time- Since he started running the Chattanooga club, the 63-year-old showman has started many a side venture. He tried horse racing and although his "Hallie Boy" made the Kentucky Derby. Joe soon had to unload. He declined when they tried to get him to run for mayor in Chattanooga last -year, but he jumped enthusiastically into a stab at making baseball bats. Joe and a business partner opened a plant in Chattanooga to make laminated baseball bats. At first "laminated" or glued bats were outlawed in professional baseball and only one-piece sticks were allowed. However, last season the 'Joe Engel laminated bat' 'was put on a trial basis and now the major leaguers have approved the bat. "I think I've got a bell-ringer now," said Joe.
