TWELVE THE LINCOLN STAR —FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1937 Cij ^het^an Texans Persist Ready Go Limit Want Only Bible National Figure D. X. Happy Here T his much I m compelled to soy concerning those Texas U. folks: They're persistent. And they have excellent judgment. In other words, the Longhorns know the man and apparently they decline to take D. X. Bible s "no ' as a final an.iwer. For a month or more the word has been seeping out of Austin that Texas U., with an athletic vacancy on its hands—the joint position of athletic director and head coach of football—is casting its net for Nebraska's talented director-coach. D. X., happy at Nebraska, has as persistently explained that the reports published under the Austin dateline are "only rumors," but when Bible admits, as he did in his authorized statement, published in Thursday's Star, that he visited Austin recently to discuss the Texas situation and to aid his friends TITLE BATTLE FACES BOYCOT!

And if one must judge from the frequent "rumors" emanating from Austin, the Longhorns are in the mood to go the limit In the effort to land Bible. remain a party to the contract. ; Briefly, the Non-Sectarian V Anti-Nazi league, of which Sam- | i > uel Untermyer, the corporation attorney, is president, is on the NET ÎOURISTS HEADING WEST Vines-Perry Dated Renew Tennis Duel Tonight At Cleveland Jones to Stay On As Head Coach at U.S.C. Pro Offer Entices Mr. Kelley of Yale NEW ORI.EANS, I.a.. Jan. « — (INS)—Larry Kelley. Yale's All-American end. is weakening on his determination not to play professional football. During a stop-over here on his way east from t'alifornia, where he participated in the East-West game at San Francisco New Year’s day, Kelley declared: “1 didn’t think I’d play pro football, but I've just about changed my mind. ‘‘I’ve a proposition that will net me about $8,000 a year— an advertising tie-up in addition to playing with the Detroit Lions. .Ynd that’s too good to turn down.” fVlKXAS i« a rich state—on© of the most favored of all the M itates. Its university has ample resources, as the institution annually profits from heavy oil royalties accruing from iKiiversity-owned lands. Wherefore 1» all comes up to this: Texas U. undoubtedly •ould go farther than Nebraska in making Bible an attractive financial offer. Such an offer, I concede, might be hard for D. X. to resist, provided the dollars of that offer alone deserve his consideration. But certainly there are other factors well worthy to be weighed in the balance—seriously weighed by D. X. in event the Texans continue to camp on his trail. From the standpoint of prestige in his chosen profession, Bible unquestionably has come to be a national figure. The quality of the football that his Nebraska teams have displayed, which includes success on the field and public support, has factored no little in adding to that prestige. The two—the coach and the institution—have climbed, hand-in-hand, the ladder of popularity. S O IT is that I'm asking: Does the Texas field offer to Bible or any other coach an opportunity equal to that already a fixture at Nebraska? My doubts are so definite that I'm prepared to enter in the record a most emphatic "no." Then I com© to the question of ethics, which, I feel sure, is Impiortant to a man of the Bible type. Nebraska's athletics are spotless from an ethical standpoint, being amateur in the strictest sense and thereby conforming to every requirement of the intercollegiate code. While numerous schools that I could mention have been wtnking at violations of that code, shamelessly permitting their agents to recruit and subsidize athletes, Nebraska has held to the center of the road. And Bible, to be sure, has been an important factor in Nebraska's attainment of a reputation for athletic decency second to no school in the nation. Which statement of the verities prompts the suggestion that while other institutions I might specify possibly rank higher than Nebraska in the achievement of athletic victories, there is none to question the championship qualifications of the Comhuskers in competition that is genuinely amateur. I N COMPARISON with Nebraska, what is the situation in the I Southwest conference, of which Texas U. is a member? ! Perhaps I shouldn't be asking that question, inasmuch as there Is no comparison. While Husker athletics are clean, the record book of the Southwest conference has a greasy smear on almost every page. At the larger Institutions of the Lone Star state, the amateur. code is a mockery. Recruiting and subsidizing are carried on In the open. Conference rules are ignored and no authoritative action is taken to call a halt on the offenders. Thi« I positively know; On© of the athletic leaders of the Texas circle sanctions the ocUvities of a "club* of 1,000 members. each of whom pays an annual assessment of $10 to a : fund which provides the boodle used in hiring athletic talent, i point of introducing a boycott against Schmeling that will make all others seem pale and pointless, b y contrast. And my information i s that, when the boycott officially goes in, Braddock goes out. He will declare, with a MAX SCHMELING. certain degree i of logic, that there’s no equity I in a contract that calls upon him , to fight 15 rounds for 42 percent of a deficit. Antis Decidedly Busy. The fight, as signed for before the boxing commis.sion here last month, was supposed to have been definitely and finally set for June 3 next in New York, where the anti-nazi feeling still is keen enough to have brought about pronounced activity by influential members of the Non-Sectarian league since the Schmeling-Braddock fight first was suggested last summer, Schmeling’s status in Germany aàso has been looked into, with the result that he is said to rate Exhibit A in the gallery of Germany’s show-window display. The league claims, too, that Schmeling plans to win the title, take it back to Germany as a keepsake and never again return. It, therefore, is more than merely i determined that Schmeling shall I make no money out of this fight; ! it is determined that it must not ! takes place and, in this, it has a not unexpected ally in Braddock. Braddock Sour On Idea. I In this connection, it may be ! added that various parties associ- . ated with the proposed fight have i been “investigated,” including Braddock and his Jewish manager, Joe Gould. There also was .something of a hint that pressure had been applied in this direction, ' but it was more or less needless. Braddock and Gould have made positively no money in a most alarming manner since coming into the championship almost two years ago and, when they go out there to defend, they are of no mind to compete with a boycott. German In Tight Jam. Thus Schmeling, who lost his chance last September when Braddock is said to have contracted arthritis in his hand and who only recently came all the way to America to keep Joe Louis, his victim by a knockout, from EVV YORK, Jan. 8 — (INS) — Fred Perry may begin to prove conclusively at Cleveland tonight that he is the world’s greatest tennis player, w’hen he meets Ellsworth Vines, the professional champion, in the second match of their nationwide tour. This was the opinion expressed today by Francis T. Hunter, former Davis cup ace and promoter of the tour, who refused to accept the Briton’s upset victory at Madison Square Garden Thursday night as a fluke. Hunter’s expert diagnosis for future reference: Makes Excuses for Vines. | “Vines undoubtedly was off form, due to illness, when Perry ! won that first match at the Gard- ! en, but the latter still proved that ! he knows how to play Vines ex- | actly right. “He softballed Vines, instead , of feeding him pace, and he also i fed Vines a hooked service which was extremely bothersome. “Also, Perry is m great shape and he is the kind of competitor that utilizes personal domination ' to fine advantage.” Despite the fact that they are rivals for recognition as No, 1 tennis player of the world. Ellsworth Vines. lell. and Fred Perry, right, seemed to be in a most friendly mood when this picture was taken in advance of their barnstorming tour as members of a professional net troupe. Soth are former American national champions. Perry won the first match Wednesday night in New York by bagging three out of four sets. OLD POP TIME SLINGS SICKLE COLLEGE I3ESÜLTS Semi-Finals On Slate. CORAL GABLES, Fla., Jan. 8 —(INS)—Semi-finals of the fifth annual Miami - Biltmore tennis tournament were to be played here today, following the upset of the nation’s second-ranking player in the quarter-finals yesterday. Frankie Parker of Spring Lake, N. J., ranked in the national competition and also seeded No. 2 in the current tourney, was eliminated by Arthur Hendrix, Lakeland, Fla., 8-6, 1-6, 6-2. Hendrix meets Bryan M. “Bitsy” Grant, diminutive Atlanta, Ga., Davis cup player, who advanced to the semi-finals by a 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 triumph over Gamer Mulloy, Miami, in today’s match. Donald Budge, Oakland, Cal., America’s No. 1 amateur netmau, and Charles Harris, Palm Beach, Fla., defending champion, will meet in another match to fight it out for the final round. Harris entered the round of four by defeating Ricardo Morales, top seeded foreign entry, of Havana, 6-2, 6-4, and Budge entered by beating his fellow Californian. Wayne Sabin, Los Angeles, 7-5, 7-5. I NTO such a foul mess Bible would be tossed were he to listen and then fall prey to the Texas enticement. Knowing Bible as I do, from a close acquaintance of the past eight years, I am unable to conceive that he could be content to pitch his tent in | ”^uscling in on his territory, once the Texas field. But Bible, once installed at the Austin institution, would not tolerate the flouting of conference statutes and amateur principles, and the Longhorns inevitably would he at a marked dis-1 ^ advantage. That certain result would bring a new harvest of discontentment in the ranks of Texas followers, but the unhappiest man of all would be Dana X. Bible. In event the Texans carry on their campaign to ensnare the Nebraska coach. I could conceive no method by which to head them oH. but I certainly know that Bible and the Nebraska public have been happy in their relationship of the past eight years—so genuinely happy that it would be nothing less than , tragic if the coach of the Comhuskers were to give favorable ear to the voice of the Texas tempters I more face.*? a seriou.s situation just when he thought that he had everything .solved. After all, there can, be no way boycott goes m—and they tell me it positively will. The man is most reasonable about it. He has $5,000 up there as a forfeit, but he would rather lose that than take a chance of lo.sing his title and his purse at one and the same time.

Age Compels Veterans of Major Loops to Pass Out of Picture. By SID FEDER. A TEW YORK. Jan. 8 — ..N (AP)—Old Pop Time is wielding- a heavy scythe among the big league veterans for 1987. Some 20 members of the select society of 10-year men in the majors already are definitely out or are slated to see their action from the sidelines when the wars start. About 17 others, still going strong, will be initiated into the select set. Meantime, such “grandaddies” of the game as Rogers Hornsby, Jimmy Dykes and Waite (Perpetual Motion) Hoyt among the 20-year men. and Frankie Frisch and Jesse Haines, each with 18 years of service back of him, are laughing at the reaper. They’re all down on the lists of active players for their clubs for the coming season, Grimm Passes Out. Bowing out of this latter group is Charley Grimm, the Chicago !

A TEW YORK, Jan. 8 — ..N (AP)—The liRhtweigfhts take over the fistic spotliidit tonight, with C’hampion Lou Ambers and a potential chal-' lenger, Enrico Venturi, tangling in a non-title 10-rounder at Madison Square Garden. Strictly on their recent showings, the betting has been near even money. A week ago, Venturi, flashy Italian fist-thrower, was 7 to 5, but the odds went down until Ambers, billed as the "Herkimer Hurricane” from upstate, rul(Mi at 6-5. Ambers has been anything but imprcsisve in his major tills since defeating Tony Canzoneri for the 135-pound crown several months ago. He was outpointed by Eddie Cool of Philadelphia, who is by no means the best lightweight m the ranks today, and took a sound thrashing at the hands of the come-backing Jimmy McLarnin. In fact, some experts believe ho won't last out the year on the division throne. Venturi .Shows Class. Venturi, on the other hand, has created considerable havoc in the lightweight group in recent months. Since coming to this country a year ago, he hasn't lost a fight in a dozen starts. Considerable pressure was brought to bear from Venturi’s camp and supporters in an effort to have the state athletic commission rule tonight’s fight a title go, rather than an over-weight encounter, but the commission refused, indicating that the title chance for the Italian puncher could wait until after he shows what he can do agaili.'^t the champ with the crown not at stake. Additional BouU. The supporting card fur the Vcn- turi-Ambcrs clash features several other lightweight hopefuls. Hobby Pacho, Mexican beitcr from California, takes on Frankie Blair of Camden, N. J., in one eight-rounder; Carl (Red) Guggino, Hanford, Conn., stablemat«* , of Ambers, meets Billy Beauhuld of Jcr.sey City in another, and the veteran I/ow Feldman trades punches with Joey Ferrando of Jersey City in a third.
