I'PAGE FOrK ' lola Wins By One Point Free Toss After Final Whistle Gives Home Team 20 to 19 Victory Over Independence Bobby Leavitt, Tola Mustang guard, made only one point in last night's basketball game and that was scoi-ed after the final -vyhistle blew but it gave the Mustangs a 20-19 victory over Independence. " ft^^llRi The game was a nip and tuck battle through all four periods. At the' end of the third quarter the score was tied 18 to 18. Durlng^e fourth quarter neither team made a basket although Vic Lind made a charity toss good early in the period. Ida held this one point lead until the last minute of play when Revel- lette, Independence forward, also earned a free toss which he made, knotting the score at 19 all. Just as the time-keeper was taking a deep brenth with which to blow his whistle and end the ball game Leavitt was fouled. In spite of the uproar in the bleachers Leavitt cooly made his point good and put the game on Ice. Take Early Lead Ba.skets by Henry Specht and Clyde Pra/.ell in the opening minutes gave lola a lead of four points which was the largest margin either team held during the game. The lirst quarter ended with the score 8-8. At the half Independence led 16 to 13.

AQUATIC SABOTEURS Gary, Ind., Jan. 6. (AP)—A school of fishes from- Lake Michigan has it all over the three little fishes who swam over the dam. The fishes tried a new route away fi-om the lake and found themselves face to face with a hydraulic machine used for descaling — not lish—but armor for tanks and other war machines. They clogged up production at the Carnegie-Illinois armor plate iiiill for one day. Construction of a cruiser requires about 5,500 tons of ordinary steel, c.xclusive of the steel in the ship's armcjr and guns. L.

(AP)—A return bout between youthful Billy Arnold, boxing's latest sensation and the veteran Fritzie Zivic of Pittsburgh seemed assured today on the heels of Zlvlc's upset victory over the previously unbeaten Philadelplila high school student who gained prominence with 28 knockouts in 31 bouts. The 31-year-old Zivic, a 5 to 1 imderdog, gained an upset eight round spilt decision over his 18- year-old opponent last night. Jacobs pondered a wide divergence of ophilon among rlngslders as he started the wlieels to arrange a return go sometime In February. There were many who agreed with the vote of Judge Marty Monroe and Referee Arthur Donovan who named Zivic the winner. There were just as many who thought Arnold ti&A won. Still others believed it was a draw along with Judge Jack Gordon. The Associated Press scorecard showed Zivic on top. Arnold, who at 144 poxmds gave away nine pounds in weight, carried the fight to Zivic throughout the eight rounds. Zivic was at his best counterpunching. He parried most of Arnold's blows on his gloves and elbows, then cut loose with hard lefts to the stomach and overhand rights to the head. He staggered Arnold in the fifth and eighth and drew blood in the seventh. Number2 (Continued From Page One) back at many points about the perimeter of the bulge. This doesn't mean, though, tliat all danger of a German breakthrough of Uie perimeter is past. Von Rundstedt stiU may have another fling at this ambitious project, or he may develop the new offensive which he has started in the Bitche sector of the Allied southern flank. The Nazi marslial has two other courses. One is to stand and fight within the bulge, which may become a ring of death. The other is to try to withdraw his men and armor back into his lUiineland defenses. Von Rundstedfs position within the bulge is dangerous. Communications in this area are bad, and he must rely mainly on one highway. He is being attacked from many directions, and General Patton's hold on the Bastogne salient is a prime menace to the German. Furthermore, his route of retreat is narrow and is being deluged with AlUed bombs. If Eisenhower smashes Von Rtmd- stedt in the bulge, the Allies wiU have achieved what they hoped to do in their disrupted winter .offensive. If the Nazis retreat they will have gained time, but their chances on the Cologne plain will be worse than before their counter-offensive. The conclusion Js tliat while Von Rundstedt still may do much damage, his success is a passing one that will leave bim in the red. Manhattan, Kas., Jan. 8. (AP)— A dozen oranges may have bad a lot to do with Kansas State's 1-point win Tuesday night over Oklahoma, basketball co-champions of the Big Six. Lanky Dave Weatherby, K-State forward, feared he was coming down with a bad cold the day before the game. A friend prescribed a dozen oranges. Tall Dave ate them at one sitting Monday night. The next evening he notched 12 points, leading his mates to a second half winning drive. P. S. When the Wildcats left last night for Ames to meet the other conference co-champ, Iowa State, Weatherby was carrying a large brown paper sack in which it was rumored there were a dozen more oranges. Birmingham, Ala., Jan. 6. (AP)— Another football bowl game heard from: The New Guinea Coconut Bowl—Bulldogs 18, Crimson Tide 7. This news came to sports editor Zipp Newman of the Birmingham News from St. Sgt. Don Worthington. former radio announcer here.
