In the Big Ten it's Wisconsin (7-1), hot on an eight-game winning streak which has brought al seven conference victories. Ken tucky (6-1) looks a good bet to repeat as Southeastern Conference leader; North Carolina's Southern Conference defending champions (12-0) are a cinch for the title tournament as they go into the last week of league play; Arkansas (8-0) already has clinched the Southern and Washington State (9-2) in the northern division, and in the Rocky Mountain Big Seven it's Wyoming (6-1). - In the three excepted instances, it still k strictly a -. toss-up; among Dartmouth - (5-1), Columbia (4-1) and Cornell (6-2) in the Ett, between ~ -Kansas (4-1) and Oklahoma --(4-2) in the Big Six, and be- -tween Drake and Crcighton (each 5-2) in the Missouri Valley. Riding high among the "independents" are the East's Seton Hall and Baltimore, each with 14 victories and no defeats. The Jersey- ites, idle last week, may knock off another against St. Joseph next Friday. But Baltimore has a tartar earning up next Saturday in Long Island University (17-2). One factor which may work in the Marylanders' favor, however, is that LIU \\dll have played Michigan State et East Lansing Wednesday and ZfePaul at Chicago on Friday be- iore coming to Baltimore, irhis week's breakdown into sec- fgns shows: =East—Columbia is coming up fast 6S the outside as a challenger to SSrtmouth's 1940 EIL winners, surprisingly beaten by Cornell for tteir first loss. The Lions knock- SS off Penn and Princeton during ffie past week, and could go into first place by beating Dartmouth Saturday. The Indians also have a tJate with Yale on Wednesday. If Dartmouth should lose to Yale and teat Columbia, Cornell could go On top by downing Harvard Fri®y- • =Z Besides 1IU, busiest Eastern ^Independent will be Rhode Is- riand State (16-1), which takes "tim Worcester, Tufts, Spring. field and Connecticut. West_ minster (14-1) has two games on tap, while highly-touted Georgetown (14-2) must play Penn State and Scranton. Among last week's major re- cults was the 59-47 victory scored over Washington and Jefferson by Ohio University (1S-S), which also list* Toledo among its victims. Midwest—Wisconsin's likely winners and Purdue's Big Ten defending titleholders meet tomorrow night in what shapes up as No. 8 for the Badgers, who are a safe bet against Chicago's taUVenders next Saturday. Indiana (6-1) is a definite threat, but appears to face tougher competition to continue that way in engagements with. Ohio State and Iowa, both winners last Bight Big Six and Missouri valley fans will pool their interests tomorrow night in the interleague game sending Henry Iba's Oklahoma Ag- gies, 1940 valley winners and now in fourth place against Phog Allen's Kansas team. This game overshadows league warfare, and shapes up as a battle between an Aggie defense that throttled Oklahoma and Kansas' high-scoring Howard Engleman. Kansas has a league date later with Missouri (0-6), while second-place Oklahoma plays Iowa State and Nebraska. The AEgie*. still hoping to retain their valley laurels, are booked against both Drake and Creighton and may break that first- place tie. Among the non-league teams CJOOK artists, straight-down-the-middle keglers and those who knock < TV/flAMI.

The horde of maple-spillers, coming from every section of the Notre Dame (14-3), which New York University for its" beat 10th straight last week, will try to make it 11 against Georgia Tech next Saturday. South—Winner over Mississippi (1-13) and third-place Tennessee 6-3) last week, Kentucky winds up its regular season against Georgia Tech (3-7) tomorrow and surprising Vanderbilt (6-3) on Wednesday. Florida's slip with Georgia dropped the 'Gators to second at 6-2. Tennessee, beaten, 37-28, by Kentucky last night, plays Vanderbilt twice. The Commodores finally found the range and whipped Georgia Tech in two games. Together with North Carolina and South Carolina (7-0), Washington and Lee, William and Mary, Virginia Military, Richmond, Duke and Wake Forest appear sure of bids to the Southern Conference tournament opening February 27. South Carolina plays four games in the final loop week, while North Carolina has only a game with Duke Thursday. Southwest—Two victories over Rice last week nailed down the conference title for the tallest team in Arkansas history. Only Southern Methodist has a mathematica chance of catching the Razorbacks and SMU has three tough ones booked—Rice, Texas Aggies and Texas—while Arkansas has two with Texas Christian, in the cellar for the seventh straight year. Pacific coast — Stanford, two games on thrice-beaten California in the southern division, svvitche partners with the Golden Bear this week. The front-running In dians meet UCLA, whipped twic by California, and the Bears pla> Southern California, defeated 48-36 and 43-36 by Stanford.

Duel Slated Rkes Two-Mile Run Found Short Of Record N EW YORK, Feb. 16—(AP)—Blame it on the war and the resulting confusion 'in international sports, but Greg Rice's two-mile run in eight minutes, 53.4 seconds at Madison Square Garden last night fell a fifth of a second short of being the fastest ever run. Your correspondent (and virtually everyone else) thought it was the fastest, since Rice's former indoor mark was 8:56.2 and the record book lists the 8:56 by Miklos Szabo of Hungary as best outdoors. But in September, 1939, Taisto state which boasts a bowling em- 1c porium, will be shooting four games .cross four alleys in determining the team title, and six games across ix alleys in the doubles and sin- jles. Trophies will be given to .hose keglers who come out on top ollowing the four-day pin ava- anche. Allan Robertson of Miami, who captured the state singles title during the 1938-39 season and who was not forced to defend it last year, will be on hand. But from all indications the state championship doubles team will not be on hand, so it will be a merry cramble for this title. Gappy Ricks and Bill Brebaugh hold the title, mt the latter probably will not be able to compete since he's working or Uncle Sam. This will be the first time In sev- ;ral years that five-man teams lave competed for the state title, the record books failing to disclose the last team to hold this title. Henry J. Sayrs, manager of the 'hoenix Bowling Center, said yes- erday that he has been assured icores of out-of-town entries. Keglers from Safford, Miami, 3 rescott, Clarkdale, Jerome, Cot- onwood, Flagstaff, Yuma and other lutlying cities have indicated their intries. Entries will be accepted at any time between now and April 1, and bowlers are requested to designate what day and at what hour they would prefer competing. Ever]' effort will be made to accommodate both out-of-town and local pin-spillers in this respect The meet will operate, insofar as he state championships are concerned, strictly upon a scratch basis, but in all three events, and running hand-in-hand with them, there will be handicap competition upon the basis of 190 scratch. Bowlers will receive two-thirds handicap, not to exceed 35 pins per ~ame. In the doubles, bowlers will be Pairings Set For Tourney JJOUGLAS, Feb. 16—(AP—With Benson High school the favorite, officials' of the Southern Arizona District conference announced today pairings for the annual basketball tournament to be held here Thursday through Saturday. Opposing teams and the times of competition in the first round of the double elimination play: 4 p. m., Willcox vs. Tucson; 5 p. m, Nogales vs. Bisbee; 7:30 p. m., St David vs. Benson, 8:30 p. m., Tombstone vs. Douglas. Benson, victor in IT contests so far this season, is without a peer in conference competition. In the opinion of sports observers. Mesa and St. Johns high schools of the East Central and Northern Arizona conferences, respectively, are the only other undefeated cage teams in the state. The Jackrabbits won their conference tournament last night and St. Johns is expected to be one of three northern teams named next week. All three are almost certain entries in the state tournament, to be held in Tucson February 27 to March 1. allowed to compete as many times as they wish providing they do not shoot with the same partner more than twice. Re-entries shoot three games. The first three of the original six games will count towards the handicap awards. There will be no re-entry in the singles but by changing two men five-man teams may be re-entered for the handicap affair. But the entries for all teams, revamped or otherwise, must be in the mails not later than midnight of April 1. Fla., Feb. 16—(AP)— a duel between Whirl Dispose in prospect, the 520,000 added Flamingo Stakes at Hialeah Park next Saturday gave promise today of developing into one of the best horse races of the year. Whirlaway, Warren Wright's 1940 two-year-old champion, was the advance favorite— just as he is for the Kentucky Derby—until King ranch's Dispose came along and set a seven-furlong track record of 1:222/5 February 1 in winning the Bahamas Handicap. The mile-and-a-furlong Flamingo, for three-year-olds, will give the two thoroughbreds a chance to match different styles of running. Always slow in getting off, Whirlaway showed that he still is one of the greatest stretch runners in the game in winning his 1941 debut February 8. The big chestnut still bears out, though. Dispose, on the other hand, gets off fast and generally runs the Idnd of race that keeps him out of trouble. There is a distinct possibility that some other less-publicized horse will show his heels to both the stars. Likely starters include: Coldstream stable's Curious Coin, Woolford farm's Silvestra and Sig- nator. Shady Brook farm's Agricole and Cadmium, J. R. Macomber's Red Vulcan. Greentree stable's The Rhymer: Mrs. Walter M. Jefford's Sailor King, Circle M. ranch's Battle- Colors, Woolford farm's Irish Day, Marshall Field's Boiled Short, Brandon stable's Cavalier, E. K.

Once upon a time, in 1903, John Anderson of Bucknell scored 40 (count 'em) field goals while his team trounced Philadelphia College of Pharmacy by a big score of 159-5. Do You Know—? is OLDEST STAKE 3-yzAx-OLDS? «nd them. WAS KNOCKED DOWN IN LOSMG -WHO JiflS THB OAK.V PITCHER 70 ALLOW ONE HIT IN WORLD SERIES GAM£? ANSWERS TO "DO TOU KNOW-?" WILL BE FOUND ON NEXT PAGE Maki of Finland ran the distance in 8:53.2. Because the war broke out soon after and there has been no record-sanctioning meeting of the international federation since then. Szabo's time remains the recognized mark. However, there is no arguing Rice's supremacy in distance- running. Forced to make all of his own pace last night, he still was able to knock off the first mile in 4:27.8, and then slam through a 60.1-second last quarter that was faster than the mile finish. The chesty Hoosier whipped Mel Trutt of Des Moines, la., by at least 40 yards, and at that Trutt was the only man within four yards of him when Rice started his sprint. In a way it was a shame Rice had to pick the New York Athletic club meet for his dazzling performance. He was bound to better his record sooner or later. As it turned out he did it just in time to steal the show from Leslie MacMitchell, the home-town boy finally making good before the home folks. There have been only three faster miles than MacMitchell'a 4:07.4 — Glenn Cunningham'* indoor 4:04.4 at Dartmouth, a paced race, and Sydney Wood- ernson'g 4:06.4 and Cunningham's 4:06.7 outdoors. There have been three equally fast ones at the Garden, on by Cunningham and two by Chuck Fenske, and with MacMitchell's they stand as the world record for a competitive race indoors. But there never has been a finish like the one in which the 20-year- old New York University junior beat Wisconsin's Walter Mehl by the fraction in which you can blink your eye. It was smashing proof of MacMitchell's durability. After following Luigi Beccali's early pace like a hound dog on the scent, he still had the stamina to make his successful bid for the lead a lap and a half from home, and then enough on top of that to make the winning lunge for the tape when Mehl had cut a two-yard deficit to nothing in the final 80 yards. MacMitchell won't run in the indoor national championship mile next Saturday. He'll race the New York A. C.'s Beccali on the anchor leg of the distance medley in an effort to bring New York University four championship medals instead of one. Mehl, Fenske, John Munski, Trutt and John Drebinger of Penn will make up the mile field — thankful, probably, that MacMitchell will be otherwise engaged. Phoenix Pair Scores Aces TTOLES in one, those rarities of •"••"•the links, were practically commonplace on Phoenix courses yesterday—one at Encanto Park and one at the Phoenix Country Club. Harry Lane tallied the Encanto ace on the par-three, 207-yard sixth hole and he had plenty of witnesses to the feat. He was playing with his two brothers, B. Lane and D. Lane, and Ezra Coverdale. Two other golfers—Kenny Watson and John Taylor, jr., were on the green when the ball ended its non-top flight. When Watson heard Lane shout 'Fore!" he turned his back toward the oncoming ball. The usually contankerous pellet hit the ;rass right behind him, foiled between his legs and trickled into the cup. H. L. Dunham of Phoenix may or may not he a leading contender in the 12th annual invitational golf tournament over the country club' course this week-end, but he defies anyone to turn in a better rune-np on the club's par-three second hole. Dunham's ball made a non-stop flight from the tee to the pin, 130 yards apart. Sitting in on the feat were Hank Nelden, C. H. Shiv- vers and Henry Warbasse. Card Pitchers Sign Contracts ST. LOUIS, Feb. Ifr—(UP)—Two Cardinal pitchers have signed 1941 contracts, bringing the total to 15 with 23 players remaining to sign, :he St. Louis National League baseball club announced tonight. New signers were Max Lanier, Denton, N. C., left-hander who won nine and lost six for the Cards last year,-and Rookie Hersche.l Lyons, Los Angeles, who won 19 "and lost 12 with the Rochester club. Michigan Rule Is Threatened QHAMPAIGN, 111., Feb. 16—(AP) Michigan's showing in the linois indoor relays Saturday dipated the Wolverines' domination of Midwestern track competition is on the wane. Michigan, which has won seven straight Big Ten indoor titles and four straight outdoor championships, took only one of 15 first places as Indiana University won three relay events while Nebraska and Ohio State were grabbing their share of individual titles. The university mile relay title went to the Michigan quartet in 3:22.8, but Indiana dominated other relay events with the exception of the shuttle hurdles relay which went to Ohio State. The Hoosiers captured the four- mile university relay in record time, and followed places in the two d up i-mile with first relay and medley relay, Campbell Kane running the anchor in the last two races. Archie Harris, colored weight star, added to Indiana's laurels by winning the all-around championship, setting a new shot put record in this event. Nebraska carried away four individual titles. Gene Littler winning the 300-yard race, Bob Ginn the 1,500-meter run, Vic . Schlerich the shot put and Harold Hunt the pole vault. Hunt leaped 13 feet, 1054 inches for a new meet record. Ohio State won the shuttle hurdles relay and Sophomore Bob Wright took the 75-yard high hurdles and Les Eisenhart retained his title in the 1,000-yard run The fourth meet record was set by Notre Dame's Keith O'Rourke who high jumped six feet, inches, to dethrone Don Canham of Michigan. Myron Piker o) Northwestern dash, Charles won Hlad the 75-yard of Michigan Normal paced the field in the 75- yard low hurdles and Missouri's Sol Schumitzky won the broad jump. Stanford Five, Cougars Lead OTANFORD and Washington State 0 College were solidly entrenched in the leadership of the southern and northern divisions of the Pacific Coast Conference basketball pennant chase Sunday. Stanford Saturday niRht won its fourth consecutive game of the season from University of Southern California, 43 to 36. It was a nip-and-tuck affair until the final six minutes when Forrest Anderson, Stanford forward, scored three free throws and gave the Indians a lead they never lost. Washington State College pulled farther away from its northern division rivals by trimming University of Washington, 39 to 31, in a game at Seattle. University of Oregon resumed its comeback march by defeating the hard-luck Idaho quintet, 52 to 28, at Eugene. California, second-placer in the southern division, defeated UCLA again, 30 to 28. Eighteen of California's points were scored on free throws. University of Montana defeated Idaho, southern branch, 47-27, at Missoula. University of Nevada beat San Francisco State, 48 to 42, at Reno. Short, Canning Gain Go// Final Encanto Park's wood-and-iron brigade completed the semifinals in the February handicap tournament yesterday and looked forward to the climax matches, due for settlement before next Sunday's sundown Perry Short and Jim Canning arrived at the first-flight finals with a victory each yesterday. Short defeated George Hartley, 4 and 3, and Canning squeaked past Calvin Hargis, 1 up. Artist Ross Santee moved into the second-flight finals with a 3- and-2 victory over Charley Thompson. His opponent will be Bob Feddersen, who won his semifinal match last week. In the third flight pay-off round Dick Hopwood will play the winner of a postponed • match between Al Riswold and Dick Walsh. Fourth-flight opponents will be Dick Holly and Elmer Phillips and in the fifth flight, Bob Sloane, who won by default from Ned Leonard, will meet Ed Langston, 2 and 1 victor over L. H. Taylor-yesterday. S PRING sports will be in full swing at North Phoenix High School this week. Coach Roily Caldwell plans to start work on track immediately— or at least as soon as the field can be gotten into shape. The Mustang basketball season closed with last week's tournament, and Caldwell will spend today checking in equipment. Coach Clare Van Hoorebeke will keep has basketball squad out the first half of the week to play in the class A second team tournament which will be held on the North Phoenix court Tuesday and Wednesday. Following that he will start baseball work. The Mustangs have new baseball suits, the color scheme being a patriotic red, white and blue, which they report will make them the best-dressed prep nine in the state this spring. They also have a veteran club which, on paper at least, shapes up as the top nine in the West Central district. Van Hoorepeke expects to give them plenty of chance to prove it. He has lined up a 16-game schedule, as follows: March 8, North Phoenix at Coolidge (morning and afternoon games); March 11, North Phoenix at Litchfield Park; March 14, Scottsdale at North Phoenix; March 18, Glendale at North Phoenix; March 19, North Phoenix at Phoenix Indian School; March 21, North Phoenix at Mesa (night game); March 25, North Phoenix at Casa Grande; March 27, Phoenix at North Phoenix. April 1, Phoenix Indians at North Phoenix; April 4, North Phoenix at Buckeye; April 8, Tempe at North Phoenix; April 11, North Phoenix at Phoenix; April 15, Feoria at North Phoenix; April 19, North Phoenix at Yuma (tentative); April 25, Tolleson at North Phoenix. Mustang track prospects are trifle uncertain. Frankie Miller, ace middle distance man, is limping on a badly sprained ankle which mav hamper him for weeks. Howard Moore and ^Howard Holt look like sure points in the pole vault, however, whjle husky squad of weight men are coming up. Barry Coleman and George Powell are possible sprinters. o- Indiana Boat Wins Regatta •VTEW SMYRNA 'BEACH, Fla., 1N Feb. 16—(AP)—His tiny craft droning around the course .like a bumble bee, Paul Wearly of Munice, Ind., dominated the annual New Smyrna Beach Regatta, which ended today, by annexing class B and C honors. Wearly won the class A Lipton trophy race yesterday, besides winning the first two heats of the class C Dave Sholtz Trophy event. Still golnc strong, Wearly took two of the three heats in the class B race today and placed second in the final class C heat to take high-point honors hi both events. Fred Jacoby, jr., of North Bergen, N. J., nosed out Wearly in the final class C heat, covering the five-mile course in six minutes, 21 seconds for a speed of 47.24 miles per hour to Wearly's 46.27. Wearly's point total, however, was 1,100 for the three heats, and he was easy winner. Marjorie Clark of Sarasota, Fla., won today's first heat of the two-day class M event in 10:31, at 28.52 miles per hour, and Tommy Haygood of Orlando, Fla., took the second hi 10:12, making: 29.41 miles per hour. However, Dick SIcFay- den of Montclair, N. J., who took both class M heats yesterday, was high with ,1,325 points in final standings. Jacoby won the final heat of class' F in 6:17.3, making 47.67 miles per hour, but Ken McKenzie of New Haven, Conn., had piled up enough points in winning the first two heats Saturday for first place with 969 points. o Harvard Names Bachlield Coach CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 16— (UP)—Alfred Mudge McCoy, head football coach at Colby College at Waterville, Me., has been appointed backfield coach at Harvard, it was announced tonight.
