Ml GROOM'S HIGHLY-TOUTED CLUB EXPECTS TO WHIP FACULTY HERE TONIGHT Puzzles Fans; Gehrig Signs /^\ .. .._.._ .._ . WOBEETIE JUNIORS TO PLAY MIDGETS IN OPENING GAME There are at least four good reasons why a large crowd of rports-loying fans is expected to be in the gym tonight when Groom's Independent basketball team takes the floor against the Pampa faculty. . First, Groom believes it has one of the best basketball teams in the Panhandle, and to prove it cage fans .in, that town will sponsor a tournament in March for the purpose of winning it. They verily believe their team can not only take the Pampa pedagogs but any other amateur set of cagers. : Groom is wisely ignoring the fact that the Pampa profs gave them a good beating on their own court a mcnth ago, because since then the Grcom team has not only improved but has added new stars to its line- tjp. ,.The. local faculty: came, from behind to win that tussle in Groom, and,,the late scoring spree gave them a victory margin of only a few points. Groom is favored tonight because the last time tlie teams met. tlie local faculty was augmented by Coach Smith of LeFors, former Mc- Miirry star, and Richards of Skellytown, former Buffalo star. Tonight, the faculty will not have these fine players in their lineup or on the Sidelines. They must depend solely upon themselves to beat the visitors, and "they" include Frank Monroe, Dick Dennard, Harry Kelley, Winston Savage, Anderson, Phillips, Bennett and Coach Odus. Mitchell. And that brings us to the second reason: Mitchell and Monroe. •,-, TJiere are local fans who will go out. of the way to watch those two .backboard experts handle tlie ball, pivot, break up dribbles, and flash defensive tactics. In the last ,eame, they tied for scoring honor* with 10 points each. -.. The Pee Wees of Coacli Harry Kejley are, the favorite basketball team of many Pampans: and; that is a good third reasoli.

Gehrig was preparing for a fishing trip with his signed contract, believed to call for an annual stipend of $30,000, safely tucked away. The'Babe was scheduled to steam into New York harbor on the Man- hattp.n this afternoon. From cut, in tile Atlantic the Babo informed the Associated Press by wireless, that he had no further statement, on whether he would sign a player contract witli the Yankees and tlmt he had made no additional plaits s.Vice leaving this country last fall. Before leaving on a barn storming trip of Japan in November, the Babe announced that he would re- tiro unless he got a managerial job. And that's what puzzles fandom. The managerial posts are occupied but friends of the Babe feel it will be impossible for him to sever his connections with the big league game. Co]. Jacob Ruppcrt, owner of the Yankees, is more than willing to sign the Babe to another player contract. But if he docs, it'll probably be at a .substantial reduction in salary. He received $35,000 last year, a rapid decline from 1031, when ho was paid $80,000.

Date of the return game will be set following tonight's game and will be either Monday or Tuesday of next week. Tonight's game will, be called at 7:30' o'clock with Coach Qarrison Bush of McLean as the official in charge. Miss Milam staled this morning that Heiskell and Shields would be at the forward positions Captain Feltner at center, and Grey, Jeffries and either Hunka- plllnr or Blytlie as the guards. The Harvestcreltes won a slow 20 lo 14 game .from Goodnight on the local floor last month. Heiskell led tlie scoring with eight points, after being switched from guard 1 to forward. Summer.ville, substitute for,ward, was second high scorer with six points. Williams was the star of the Goodnight altack, accounting for eight of the points made by her learn. Brown followed in "scoring with five points. Tlie Goodnight team won their section by -defeating Panhandle in a series, played last week. Tlie work of Williams, forward, and O'Hara, guard for the Pampa quintet has been looking much better the past week and Ihose two players are likely to be used lo- night. Williams had been ill for some time but last week scored high honors against LeFors. O'Hara recently became eligible for competition. She is small but a hustler and can play against opposition that is not loo tall. If a third game is necessary to decide the team that will play in Hie scclional finals, it will probably be on a neutral court. iwri|cytfy E.

McCluskey May Not Defend His Title Saturday NEW YORK, Feb. 20. W—Because he failed to notify the amateur athletic union* of a change in address, Joe McCluskey, former Fordham track star and a member of the 1932 Olympic team, today faced the possibility of bsing ineligible to defend his 3,000-meter steepi lechase title in the national uidoor track and field ineet at Madison Square Garden Saturday night. McCluskey and Paul Mundy of -_ie Millrose A. A. were ordered to appear before the registration committee to answer charges of a fight at the Millrose games February.2. Both failed to appear and drew automatic suspensions from John J. Deignan, chairman of the committee. ' Tlie national steeplechase champ- on said he failed to receive the lotice and on investigation found ;hat it had been sent to his old address. Mundy also said he had not received his notice. "That does not excuse MeCluskey, lowever," said Dan Ferris, secretary of the A. A. U. "All athletes are required to notify the A. A. U. of any change, in address." The two athletes were turned in •>y an official for "conduct unbecoming a gentleman." McCluskey vas said to have taken a poke at Mundy during the running of the ,wo-mile race, claiming that the alter consistently stepped on his icels. Both will have a chance to clear themselves Thursday bight, however, when the registration com- nittee will hold another meeting. Hockey teams in the northwestern Professional League were con-' istent losers this season, all five of the clubs dropping their first lome games.

Baer said his bride-to-be lives somewhere in the east and that she is wealthy and a brunette, 28 years old. fte refused to name the city of her residence. POLO MATCH TODAY LOS ANGELES', Feb. 20. (£>)—The Pacific coast open polo championship battle goes into another round /oday when the powerful Texas Rangers take the field at Midwick against the Los Indies quartet. Texis' hope for victory and a chance ;o go into the finals Sunday was considerably bolstered with the expected return to play of Cecil Smith, cne of the world's three nine-goal aces. LUST STIETCN EXES ARE SMOTHERED IN HAPHAZARD GAME Coach Odus Mitchell's candidates for the district basketball championship clicked sufficiently last night to run rough-shod over a sparkling quintet of exes In a Icnghty scrimmage here, but their performances gave him little, If any, reason to gloat. He has hopes that his cagers wll near their peak by Friday - when the tournament will begin. They showed little evidence last night that they have reached top form "Boogee" Nash, forward, whose goal-shooting until ten days ago was sensational, is only one of five worries—one for every man on the first string. However, there were indications, last night that Nash is slowly regaining form. The exes who took the flopr we're Miles Marbaugh, Jess Patton, the latter a guard on Pampa's only district championship team; Harold Gregory, high school student but ineligible; Love, center on a state championship team from Denton that went to the national tourna- ent in Chicago in 1928, and Morrison, and Lloyd Hamilton who never did like basketball very much anyway. It's a fact that Patton last night scored more points than he did in ;he last half-dozen games ho played for Pampa high school. J. R. Green, Harvester, center, out-jumped Marbaugh, and probably has a more accurate basket eye than Miles, but "Gomez" was on in a big way. The Harvesters eventually smothered them under an avalanche of baskets, but eventually, not immediately. They allowed the score to become tied in the first few minutes. Stokes Green, forward, shone on the offense, but he and all the others passed recklessly and futilely at ;imes. The evening's slump was expected. In times past, local good teams have always looked their worst against exes who usually race down ,he court-grabbing, snatching, yell- ng and charging. Exes of necessity play a brand of basketball that s largely hit-or-miss aftd haphazard. .Despite the Harvesters' mediocre showing in the last three games, including last, night's, they have improved much in the last two weeks, and if all teams eventually hit a )eak, and basketball statesmen say ;hey do, then it is certainly time 'or the Harvesters to begin ascend- ng the summit of the mountain. That the Harvesters will face trong competition in the tourna- nent is a foregone conclusion. Borer, Allison and. Panhandle, and kely as not Mobeetie and Biggins, /ill be high- hurdles to jump. Ac- ording to statistics on paper, the Harvesters should win the tourna- nent. If they do, they will enter he regional at Canyon, probably gainst such teams as Amarillo, Lamesa, Crowell, Childress, Sam- orwood, Stratford, all of whom ave good chances to win in the rar districts.

Johnny Dawson of Chicago, present holder of the invitation title, was five over par to share third place with, three Others at 78. Those who ended the day square with him were Harold.-Cohn Jr. of Houston, Rube Albaugh of Dallas, and John Barnum of Edinburg. At 77 stood Haibert Grumbles of San Antonio and Ike Handy of Houston. A stroke Higher were Henry Ransom of Houston inid Warren Dawson of Chicago. Reynolds Smith, Texas amateur champion, Harry Todd of Dallas, Junior western champion, Al Smith of. tjouston, Fred Odom of New. Orleans, and. T. L. Fontaine of Houston completed the list of those rible to break 80. The equivalent of tt pair of 40's was required by such players as Lqland. Hamman, Trans- Mississlppl champion; Ossie Carlton,.

Dallas, O.'Hara Watts of Dallas, J. W. Pouts of Dallas, and Lieut. Ken Rogers of San Antonio. The long list of scores in the middle 80's assured a free-for-all scramble for the 32 qualifying places.
