District Attorney Frank Hogan said Dave Shapiro, 25, co-captain of the George Washington university basketball squad, had been working with New York police for 4 months to gather evidence against the 4 who were arrested Tuesday night. The accused quartet, 3 men from New York and one from Florida, were to appear Wednesday afternoon in felony court to answer charges that they offered Shapiro $1,000 if his team would lose Tuesday night's game to Manhattan college "by 18 or 19 points." But Manhattan Loses Instead of losing, George Washington trounced Manhattan 71-ti? and Shapiro, a Battle of the Bulge veteran, was given unstintec praise by Hogan for trapping the 4 men. At a press conference early this morning, Hogan announced the arrest of Joseph Aronowitz, 35, clothes cutter; Philip Klein, 34, linotype operator; and William Rivlin, 43, all of New York, anc Jack Levy, 40 of Miami, Fla. Hogan said they were chargec with "attempting to bribe partici pants in amateur sports." The district attorney chargec that the men had been in contac with Shapiro since last summe and made him at least 3 definit offers of money if he would se that George Washington lost certain game by a certain numbe of points. For losing to Manhatta by 18 points, the offer was $1,000 —$500 for himself and $500 for another player. Net Set Since Sept. 2 But Hogan also revealed that Shapiro, a law school senior, had been working hand-in-glove with the district attorney's office since Sept. 2.

ONE DEAD FOX, ONE DOLLAR—Glen Kellog of Clear Lake, right, is shown receiving a dollar from Dudley Decker at Decker Brothers in Mason City for bagging a member of the Reynard family, clan of fox. Kellog bagged the fox south of Clear Lake. The sporting goods store matches the dollar given by the county as a bounty for killing foxes. The offer is good only during January. The supply is quite plentiful in Cerro Gordo county and the foxes have been killing a considerable number of rabbits and pheasants. 4th Triumph for Winners Lead 40-20 Midway in Final Quarter By JIM VANHEEL Sports Editor The Mason City junior college cage team scored its 4th triumph of the season by dq\vning the winless Eagle Grove jaycee club 4032 at Roosevelt fieldhouse Tuesday evening. The victory was much easier for Coach Volney Hansen's team than the final score indicated. About midway in the last period, the Trojans were in front 40-20 but they failed to gather another point while Eagle Grove put on a belated 12-point rally to close the gap. The triumph was achieved through 2 factors: very weak shooting on the part of the visiting club and alert defensive work by j the Trojans. Slow First Quarter In the slow lirst period. Eagle Grove managed to get only one f ieldgoal, that by Bill Stewart, but the Trojans were anything but a ball of fire and the period ended with Mason City in front 8-5. It was the 2nd period which decided the game. The Trojans jarred loose with 19 points in the quarter North Iowa Basketball ST. ANSGAR SWATS NORTBWOOD 46-23 St. Ansgar — Throwing off the sting of 2 pre-holiday defeats, St. Artsgar whipped Northwood 46-23 here Tuesday night for their 6th success of the season. It was 19-11 at the halftime. The Saints got well balanced scoring punch from Andy Houg, who had 15, Phil Vandermyde and Eddie Kittleson, who hit 11 apiece. Hinds led the Vikings with 10 and Elvin Anderson pocketed 6. St. Ansgar 2nds scored a 35-23 triumph. LYNX KEEP ROLLING; STOP HAMPTON 47-30 Hampton The Webster City Lynx ran their string to 5 anc maintained their perfect North Central loop mark by spilling H a in p t o n 47-30 here Tuesday night. The Lynx, who own a 4-0 conference mark, were led by Black with 14 m a r k e r s. Pau Schipper was high for the Bulldog with 9. The visiting 2nds won 3924. ALGONA BEATS CLARION TO REMAIN UNDEFEATED Algona — The undefeated Algona Bulldogs won their 6th *amo here Tuesday night and 4th in North Central conference competition by defeating the Clarion Cowboys 36-28. The winners were in front 24-15 at intermission. Jerry Lauritzen of Algona with 13 points aiid Bud Sumner of Clarion with 15 points paced the scoring while defensive standouts were Ray Ross of Algona and Sterling Meyer of Clarion. Algona won the B team game 37-27. THORNTON BOYS SCORE FIRST TRIUMPH 27-11 Thornton — The Thornton boys won their first cage victory of the season here Tuesday by defeating Rock Falls 27-11 in a Cerro Gordo conference game. The losers made only 2 fieldgoals in the game and trailed Thada points. The Rock Falls girls won the opener 42-30. 15-2 at the half. Dean led the winners with 9 while buying airplane tickets to Miami, and Aronowitz and Klein were arrested when they kept a rendezvous for a supposed "payoff" on a street corner near Madison Square Garden. Hogan revealed that Dr. Cloyd Heck Marvin, president of George Washington university, had been aware of the impending arrests and had given his fullest co-operation. This was confirmed by Tom Coleman, director of the university's sport publicity. "Dave co-operated throughout with Dr. Marvin; Max Farrington, director of athletics; Coach George Garber; and the district attorney's office," Coleman said. Change m Odds Suspicion that something was wrong regarding the George Washington-Manhattan game were rife Tuesday afternoon when betting odds on Manhattan, an 11-point favorite, dropped suddenly to even-money, take-your- pick, and then George Washington was called a 3-point favorite.

Kirksville Teachers Defeat Loras 48-46 Kirksville, Mo., CU.R)—A closing rally by Loras fell short Tuesday, night as Kirksville Teachers won a 48-46 basketball victory over the Iowa club. Kirksville led all the way and held a 12-point margin shortly after halftime. LUBRICATION The athlete, a counsellor at a summer camp at West Copake, N. Y., received a letter from Aronowitz. On Sept. 1, while Shapiro was at home in Brooklyn, he received a telephone call from Aronowitz and the latter "started talking basketball." The district attorney said Shapiro suddenly grew suspicious of Aronowitz and went the next day to Hogan's office, taking with him Aronowitz' letter. From then on, Shapiro was acting under instructions from his office. Stalled Off Twice Hogan said that in December Shapiro had been offered $1,000 if his team would lose by a certain number of points to North Carolina. Shapiro said he couldn't do it because the team had a new coach. A week later, Hogan said, Shapiro was made another $1,000 offer. This time for a loss in the game against Virginia but again "stalled them off." Tuesday morning, Hogan said, Aronowitz met Shapiro at a New San Francisco, (/P)—Bowl games that "commercialize" college football teams Wednesday drew the ire of the president of the National Collegiate Athletic association. President Karl Leib of the University of Iowa spoke out against some of the bowls, but did not name them, as the NCAA and affiliated groups settled down to the business of their 1949 conventions. A move to curb the growing tendency toward postseason games is probable when a committee headed by Victor O. Schmidt, Pacific Coast conference committee, reports on a survey of the bowls Friday. Some Bowls Favored Doctor Leib told a news conference he was in favor of "bowl games operated under the same conditions as the Rose, Cotton, Sugar and Orange bowls," and included the Shrine's East-West charity game in the same class. The convention runs through Saturday. It is slated also to discuss the NCAA "sanity" code, dealing with eligiblity of athletes, and' a committee report on television as related to college football. \\wmm CITY BOWLING LEAGUE Team Won 1st 2nd :ird H.C.

The American Football Coaches' association, meeting concurrently, is expected to debate the pros and cons of the new "platoon" system of football substitutions, probably the most controversial feature of the season just ended. See No Rule Change It was generally predicted that nothing much would come of any argument and that the rule, permitting unlimited substitutions, would go unchanged. As to the sanity code, Doctor Leib predicted some members may suggest modifications. "I expect some hot discussions on eligibility and grants-in-aid phases of the code." The football coaches rules committee went into daylong sessions Wednesday, after the appointment Tuesday night of a nominating committee to select new trustees. Harvey Harman of Rutgers presided at Tuesday night's session. Officials of the coaches' association advance automatically through the various offices, bringing L. R. "Dutch" Meyers of Texas Christian to the presidency this year. Other officers will be Earl "Red" Blaik, Army, first vice president; Lynn "Pappy" Waldorf, California, 2nd vice president; Bob Higgins, Penn State, 3rd vice president; Lloyd Jordan, Amherst; Ike Armstrong, Utah; Carl Snavely, North Carolina; Don Faurot, Missouri; George Munger, Pennsylvania, and Ray Eliot, Illinois, trustees.

The coaches have prepared a resolution proposing that their annual meeting be returned to New York City, where it was held in 1947. Dates recommended were Jan. 13-14. A committee was appointed to investigate the possibility of holding a summer coaching school for association members. Doctor Floyd Eastwood, professor of education at Los Angeles State college, reported that for no known reason most of the head injuries to players in 1948 occurred in the 2nd and 4th periods, as compared to the first and 3rd periods the previous year. There were no college players reported killed during the season. Tallest player on the Santa Clara basketball squad is Bob Sunrlerland, 6-4. 4 All-Big 9 Players Back for Competition By ED SAINSBURY Chicago, (U.R)—Four of the men on last year's Big Nine all-conference basketball team are back in action this season, and stronger than ever and they were expected to keep their clubs in the thick of title contention all the way. Michigan's 2 prime guards, Pete Elliott and Bob Harrison, Minnesota's Lanky Center Jim McJntyre and Illinois' Forward Dwight Eddleman are the fearsome foursome. In pre-conference w a r m u p clashes all showed promise of making their greatest campaigns. Harrison Clicking Harrison, who has seen more action than Elliott thus far because Pete still is working out his football kinks, has blasted 79 points in 8 games. Elliott has netted 51 in the same number of contests. And while their scoring is important, Michigan features a balanced attack and their work defensively has been most important. With this pair on the backcourt Michigan rated the choice from league coaches to successfully defend its championship. Changes Style At Minnesota, Coach Ozzie Cowles has revamped Mclntyre's style. And while the 6 foot 9£ inch giant may not make as many points as he did last season, when he finished 2nd in league scoring with 215 counters for 12 games, he'll be more valuable. Big Mac has netted 156 points in 8 practice games for the undefeated Gophers so far, an average of 19.5 per scrap. But more important, he's been taking to the air after rebounds, a new feature of his game; he's been serving as decoy for other Gopher scorers, and he's been showing much greater ability in all-around floor play including defense. Eddleman was the sparkplug of the point conscious Illini during pre-season play and averaged 15.5 points per game. Against Wisconsin, though, in the league opener he had a bad night and failed to make a field goal. But with 3 free throws still he clung to first place in team scoring with 148 points for 9 games. High School Sports Trail By L. E. SKELLEY Des Moines, (ff") — Davenport's Blue Devils, to whom 2 straight defeats is a long losing streak, plan to do something about it against Dubuque Friday. Iowa City was first to knock off the Blue Devils (42-40). Then Moline, a Quad-City rival, stopped them 41-38. The Dubuque clash will be a Mississippi Valley conference affair. Right now Iowa City is leading the pack with a 5-0 record. Davenport and the Cedar Rapids schools (Franklin and McKinley) are tied for 2nd at 4-1. Franklin challenges the Little Hawks on the Iowa City court Friday. •Jf * * Jan. 8, Jan. 28 and Feb. 4 are important dates for Mason City's Mohawks who have won 10 straight.

That game also is away from home as will be the Feb. 4 business with Webster City, a 4 point victim. Mason City defeated Ames 31-26 ast week to move ahead in its all-time series with the Little Cy- lones 5-4. The schools began their •egular basketball competition in 1940. * * * Bing Shepherd had a big homecoming at Clinton. A member of Clinton's frosh-soph team the last 2 years, Bing came back to Clinton as a forward on the Beloit, Wis., varsity. Shepherd, who transferred to Beloit last fall, scored 14 points against his former mates to lead his team to a 44-41 victory over the River Kings. There is a lot of discussion in western Iowa concerning the relative merits of Marvin Tuttle, Iowa Deaf's big center, and Delmar Corbin, the husky Negro lad who does the pivot post tricks for Thomas Jefferson, Council Bluffs.
