However, Leavenworth has continued to travel at the pace It set that night; whereas the Greyhounds gave evidence Saturday of having slowed down. Nevertheless, any local observers believe that If the Garnet can regain it" old lire in practice this week, It will not only bo able to give Tech (i battle Saturday, but will have a pretty fair chance of scoring ft win.

Rocky Graziano To Appear Before Athletic Commission New York, Jan. 29—(UP)—Mid- (Ik-welKht boxer Rooky Graziano hn.H two tougn opponents ahead of him this week—maybe toughsr than anyone he hns met in the ring, One — District Attorney Frank Ho can of New York, who jays he's going to question Rocky some more about the lighter's admission that he was twice offered .$100,000 to throw a fight, The other opponent—the New York State Athletic commission. Graxlnno will appear before that group this Friday. And it may conceivably result In an edict barring Grnziano from ever entering the prize ring again. The big complaint is that he didn't tell of the bribery attempt until he was questioned by the district attorney. . Meanwhile, three other gamblers have been involved in the effort to fix the New York-Chicago professional football championship game. One man Is already in jail In connection with a basketball scandal back in February of 19-15.

Wally Brown Alan Carney "Genius At Work" Ed's note: Today's offering is the product of J. Joseph Carrier, retired bowtal employe, who has been keeping close touch on the prospects of the Post Office-Big Five ever since they signed to p)ay tiiu Merry Morticians In the March of Dimes' benefit at the Y Friday night. MCCARTHY PLANS TO STOP WEAVING By Joe Currier All this brave talk with which members of the Post Office Big Five have been holding forth about what they will do -to the Merry Morticians is just BO much whistling while walking past the cemetery, ut night. Actually the Big Five looks forward to a hard fight. And Coach Ed McCarthy, a basketball strategist from back when fathers name in gold letters was on a shaving mug in the barber shop, has given considerable thought as to what plan of battle would produce best results for the mailmen. Yesterday in Postmaster Frank Green's office McCarthy announced his intentions of springing a coup d'etat. Man for the Job "Russ Weaving is the Morties' high scorer, but I've got .the answer to that," Ed told the postmaster, "I'll put Bud Stiber on him. He won't score then." "If you put Stiber on him or anyone else, the guy wouldn't even move, le.t alone score," Green said. "I did not intend my words to be interpreted literally,'.' Ed told Frank with just a touch of hauteur. "I meant I would assign Stiber to the task of guarding Weaving. I shall instruct Bud to get between Russ and the basket whenever Weaving has the ball." The Plan "What pood will that do?" Green wanted to know. "Just picture yourself," Ed answered. "Weaving has the ball. He's dribbling clown the floor. Stiber id between him and the basket. He can't dribble into Buddy, because that's charging. Therefore, he .has to go around Stiber and cut for the hoop." There was a pause. "Well,?" asked Green. "Well," replied Ed, "by the time he does that, the period will be over," o coiix-rt - wniti-r '-'•*Cp/<r i /»t n - .limp Alyyson k - 5C ^ 1 ^ 1 ' "'*" Buster" 1947 Marks Our 104th Year of Successful Rubber Footwear Manufacturing With This Record of Achievement Behind Us We Look Forward to Future Security and Prosperity For Our Company, Our Employees and the Community UNITED STATES RUBBER CO.

They meet the Malleable Iron team. Many Dusty league followers believe the game will be close. The Rubber are reputed to be the class of the league, hence the Ironmen will go all out to knock them off. On the other hand, the Rubber- men will want to win tonight's game to bring an "unsullied local record against the Knights Friday who have won nine out of 11.
