16 Jan. 12, 1949 ! Mason City Glate-Gaiette, Mason City, I». Expect No Change on Free Sub Rule Palm Springs, Cal., (/P)— The National Collegiate Football Rules committee probably will not alter the free substitution rule, which permits almost unlimited substitutions during a game. This was indicated Wednesday by unofficial comment as the committee continued its deliberations behind locked doors. Official announcement of the committee's actions will not be made until the sessions end, possibly Thursday.

Bill Erickson Sets Pace for League Leading Illini Team By ED SAINSBURY Chicago, (U.R)—Bill Erickson o£ Illinois who plays his best when the chips are down, may be the player to lead the Illini to their first Big Nine basketball title since the era of the famed "Whiz Kids." Erickson, a 20-year-old platinum blond junior from Rockford, 111., last season totaled 147 points, hitting 32 per cent of his attempts for fieldgoals. But he was overshadowed by Dwight Eddleman. Jack Burmaster and a few more veterans. This year, still competing against Eddleman for top honors, Erickson is more than holding his own.

Most Improved Player "Erickson is without doubt our most improved player," Coach Harry Combes said after Illinois opened the conference season with a C2-50 victory over Wisconsin. Erickson, who is 6-feet-1-inch tall, threw in 17 points that night to lead the scoring. "I don't think there's a player in the conference who has a better fake or one who can work in for good shots with more ability than Erickson has shown" said Athletic Director Doug Mills, who coached Illinois basketball until 2 years ago and who directed the "Whiz Kids." After his opening performance against Wisconsin, Erickson came through with another 17 points to spell the difference between victory and defeat against Indiana. Against Ohio State, when the Illini had to come from behind to win 64-63, Erickson popped in 12 points. Leads Loop Scoring His performance in the first 3 games put him in the league scoring lead with 46 points and while that probably won't hold up, because Illinois has played one more game than other teams, he seems likely to stay among the top 10 shotmakers of the conference for the season. In 12 games thus far Erickson has netted 138 points, 20 less than Eddleman, and his percentage of accuracy on fieldgoal attempts has been an amazing .400. Erickson's importance is not solely on his scoring. A guard, he features speed and is a clever ball handler and feeder. A "pepperpot" player, adept at stealing the ball, he's a key man in setting up plays. SPORTS PARADE By OSCAR FKALEY New York, (U.R) — George P. Marshall, owner oC the National league Washington Redskins, was branded Wednesday as the "stumbling block" preventing settlement of the pro football war but indications were that pressure would force a quick merger with the rival All-America conference. Dan Topping, owner of the AAC New York Yankees, put the finger on the wet-Washington magnate as the leagues prepared for a Jan. 19 meeting at which the axe finally was expected to be buried with these results: 1. Formation of one 14-team Army scored but one touchdown against Harvard in the first 13 games played between the 2 schools, beginning with the 1895 contest. rRaizes' league, separated into 2 divisions. 2. Cancellation of the New York Yankee, Brooklyn Dodger and Chicago Rocket franchises of the AAC. 3. Movement of the Boston Yanks into New York's Yankee stadium on a lease. 4. Merging of the NL Los Angeles Rams and the AAC Los Angeles Dons. "We are willing — but please don't say we are anxious — to become a landlord if it means peace in -pro football," Topping said. "I would like to stay in the game and if peace doesn't come I will operate a team." Blames Marshall It was then that Topping, handsome tin-plate heir, blamed Marshall for holding up peace negotiations at the recent inter-league meeting in Philadelphia. After that session it was reported that the NFL, which needs a unanimous vote on such matters, had beaten the peace proposal by a 9 to 1 vote. The vote was Marshall's, who fought against retaining the Baltimore franchise because it infringed on what he claims are his territorial rights. But Topping disclosed that the AAC will insist on Baltimore's rights. "Pressure will have to be brought to bear on Marshall," he said. The NFL could dp that by re- unanimous vote To Decide Whether Penn Will Stay in Iowa Conference By United Press The question of whether William Penn college of Oskaloosa will be permitted to remain in the Iowa loop was slated to come up at a meeting of the conference executive committee in Waterloo Wednesday. The question was raised because, according to loop officials, Penn failed to state within a 10- day deadline whether it wanted to stay in the league. Penn Athletic Director Jack Oxenreider was said to have replied affirmatively after the deadline, set following a Nov. 19 meeting in Des Moines at which the Oskaloosa school indicated indecision about remaining in the conference.

M. Daily, KSMN 1010 pealing the amendment. Indicating his willingness to become a landlord for the NFL Boston Yanks, Topping insisted that his players and coaches "will have to be taken care of." The NFL already has approved the transfer of the Boston team to New York which, if peace is not made, would mean that the Boston team would have to share the Polo Grounds with the New York Giants. More Complications The Mara interests, which lease the Polo Grounds and long have fought the Yankees, apparently realized that this would glut the market. So their landlord, Horace Stoneham, has entered the picture. - "I had several talks with Stoneham, and Horace very strongly urged me to become a landlord," Topping said. "He feels even more strongly than we do that 3 teams in New York—4 counting Brooklyn—would not only ruin both leagues but pro football in general." Dapper Dan revealed that he would confer again with Stoneham—and for the first time with the heretofore stubborn Maras— before the Jari. 19 meeting. "I don't think there'd be much With the Preps By JACK PALMER Des Moines, (U.R)—High school basketball tournaments are still more than a month away and conference races, ai-e the center of attention now, but rival coaches are starting to get a line on their tourney opposition. It is too early in the year to pick any tournament favorites, bu the Mason City 5, with its string of 11 victories, has rated lots o: attention. The Davenport Blue Devils, runners-up last year and champs the year before, are always a contender, despite their 2 losses by narrow margins thi year. Ottumwa, now 1'ading the Little Six conference, recently hurdle? its biggest barrier to the title when it dumped Burlington 27-25 in a match of defenses. Iowa City look strong with its 7 straight victorie in the Mississippi Valley play. In the ' southwest, Shenandoa' leads the pack in the Hawkey Seven race with a clean slate o 4 wins. Boone and Newton ar pacing the Central Iowa loop, bu the race is something of a scrambl with no team holding a perfec record in play. * * Defense seems to be th keynote for several teams thi year, especially Mason City. Th Mohawks have relied on holding the score down in most of their games. They have averaged 39.1 points per game, including the 58 points they poured in against Waverly. But Mason City has held the opposition to a measly 30.2 points per contest. * * * Dustry Rice is proving that football isn't his only sport at Oelwein. Recently he poured in 23 points as his teammates lost 53-48 to Cedar Falls. The Oelwein team has been having bad luck this season with the loss of Jim Butler through injury, then scarlet fever, putting the burden on Rice's shoulders. * * * Coaches have tabbed Winfield and Danville as small-town teams to watch as the season grows older. Clayton Rabedeaux and Ron Kester have paced the Winfield 5 on a team that averages 6-feet-2.

The Simpson Redmen, vho went no where in earlier outside tournaments, racked up their 3rd straight conference victory at Pella with a 56-49 triumph over Central. Jack Blake counted 25 points for Simpson. Iowa Wesleyan also got its 3rd straight triumph,, downing hapless Penn 60-46 at Oskaloosa. It was the 5th conference loss for the Quakers, but their forward, Burt Howard, led the scoring with 21. Westmar easily thumped Buena Vista 60-41 at Le Mars for its 2nd straight victory. In other contests, Dubuque avenged an earlier defeat by walloping Illinois Extension of Galesburg 57-38 at Dubuque, and Upper Iowa came from behind to edge Winona, Minn., State Teachers 47-45 at Fayette. Bad roads forced postponement of Parsons's game at Quincy, 111., and the St. Ambrose-Western Illinois Teachers contest at Macomb. Kozy Korner . 1 79!) 780 745 405 27011 V. F.
