The leaders will tackle CL" again at Boulder in their final contest March 8 in what will be either a "money" game or little more than an exhibition, insofar as Wyoming's title chances are concerned. Utah and Colorado, on the other hand, have yet to play their two games with each other. The first will be at Boulder Friday and the second at Salt Lake City a week later.

Enloe, a guard, led the winners' work at the basket with 17 points, and the Jones brothers, Paul and Earl, paced the PBSW scoring with 12 and 11, respectively. In other games, Lily Ice Cream defeated O. B. Marston, 55 to 37, with Marvin Lehman and Malcolm Straus setting the pace with 13 points each, and the Federal Employees won the first of their two-of-three games series for the employee division title with First National Bank by a 41-to-32 count. Rex Phelps of the Lions took high honors in the latest installment of the free-throw contest, bucketing 13 shots in 15 attempts. Hank Jones of PBSW and Straus connected with 12 shots each and Paul Jones of PBSW tallied 10. No games are scheduled tonight TOPS WORLD SKATERS: Megan Taylor is easy on the ice as she works out in San Francisco. Miss Taylor made the hazardous trip from England via* Australia to appear in a number of events, the first in St. Paul, Minn. She took Sonja Henie's world women's amateur figure skating championship when the Norwegian star turned professional. She won the title in 1938 in Stockholm, repeated a year later in Prague. There was no competition last year. Coyotes Boast Bright Baseball Prospects T5ASEBALL prospects are looking brighter at Phoenix Union High School where Coach Cliff Prather is busy building a nine out of green material. Prather made his first tentative cut last week when he limited his varsity squad to 18 players. He expects to cut the squad to 13 men following the dose of the basketball season when Vernon Tuckey will be ready to handle the surplus on a s'econd team squad. Prather will carry the smallest Coyote varsity squad in years in order to be able to concentrate on bringing them along rapidly. As it looks now, most varsity players will be seniors, several of whom have never before made an effort to make the team. Bill Farmer, who has a rifle arm, is looking good both to the field and at bat, and may solve the third-base problem. Bob Warrent, veteran infielder, looks to be a much improved player, while Prathcr plans to experiment with Eddie Gallardo as an infielder, once the veteran fly- hawk is released from the basketball squad. Bob Norton, a big boy who throws with an easy motion, may be transformed into a pitcher. If not, he is certain to fit in some place on the varsity for he is a hard worker who looks like a hitter. The Coyotes open their season on the local diamond March 7 when they face the veteran Casa Grande Cougars, champions of the East Central Conference last season. Phoenix faces a seriou test in fon- ference play March 21 when the club goes to Yuma to face, a veteran Criminal nine which was a sensation in district Feminine Golfer Sets Exhibition (From Late Republic Edition Yesterday) Mrs. Opal S. Hill of Kansas City, nationally known golf star, arrived yesterday for a three-day visit during which time she will give goll exhibitions at several Salt River Valley courses. Mrs. Hill was one of the topflight amateur feminine golfers until she turned pro several years ago. She is expected to team with local feminine stars for an exhibition match at the Encanto Park course Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon, Milt Coggins, park pro, said yesterday.

Typical of the present-day type which usually wins is the string owned by Heseman. His are a cross between greyhounds and setters—especially bred for racing. Long of leg and hard as nails they show plainly the grayhound strain, but are larger than their uncrossed brothers. ... Originally drivers used the same almost flat and bulky sleds that are still in service where dog teams are employed for necessity, but drivers have developed an extremely light, yet rugged sled that has the appearance of a chaise longue frame without legs. President of the American Dog Derby Association, * com- munitv setup which sponsors the race, is Warren Cordingley of Ashton, a racer of the early '20s. He claimed such victories as first place in the 105-mile grind in Calgary. Cordingley's son, Don, is a three- time winner of the Ashton show. Only five drivers entered the first American Dog Derby. There will be no fewer than 15, perhaps 20. this trip. The original course extended from West Yellowstone, Mont., to Ashton, a distance of 68 miles, over timbered stretches of typical Rocky Mountain terrain. Kent, whose feats in • derby racing have become legendary, captured the inaugural in a raging blizzard in a little more than 26 hours. In '18, the second race was run a 10-mile figure eight course adjacent to Ashton, but it's quite a jump from the first course to the one of today. This year, from a grandstand at the starting-finishing line, spectators will see the teams the entire length of the course. Until '36, cash prizes were the y, incentive. In that year the Kugler Trophy was put up. Only three names are inscribed on the trophy—Lloyd VanSickle of Ashton, Baum and Heseman, who registers from Marysville, Ida. Van Sickle, an Ashton resident came down in front in '36 and '37. Everything still goes, and this years race is expected to turn up some first-class oddities, like, for instance, the time Olcott Zarn won even though one of his Belgian police dogs took sick and was loaded near Ashton.

C., Feb. 17—(UP) •" Horace (Bones) McKinney, star center of the Nort Carolina State freshman basketball team, is the college court game's contribution to the gallery of magnificent screwballs of sports which includes such illustrious specimens as Dizzy Dean, Maxie Baer and Frank Kovacs, to name a few. Bones—he doesn't like to be called Horace because he considers that name undignified— is six feet, seven inches tall, and has long arms he can flail like a uninhibited windmill. In addition to being a good basketball player—he has been State's high scorer in every game but one—he is the crowd's delight. He yells, flails his arms, pats the referee on the hack, mumbles under his breath, answers hecklers in the stands and gives himself pep talks. Bones talks constantly while playing. He can call a referee a so-and-so without moving his lips, and the referee can't prove he said it. If a foul is called on him he protests loudly to the crowd and later mumbles to the referee, "that's all right, bud, we all make mistakes." He proves disconcerting to his opponents — who oddly enough never lose their temper—by mumbling rapidly at them such things as: ."Gee whizz, bud, I wouldn't do it that way. Look what you're doing. Gee whizz, don't you see all those people watching you? You wouldn't want to look silly, would you? Here, give me the ball, I'll show you how it's done." Once a rattled opponent actually gave him the ball. When State takes the offensive, Bones ambles down the court singing to himself, waving at someone in the crowd or replying to his frequent hecklers. Occasionally he walks down the court with his arm across the referee's shoulder, arguing vehemently while gesticulating to the crowd, and then abruptly closes the subject with, "Aw, forget it. You know your business—I guess." If an opponent is knocked down, Bones is liable to start counting him out, and then wheel suddenly and attack an official with, "I just want to keep the record straight. Gee whizz, I know you're right, but call 'em fast." When he isn't doing anything else he's liable to be off by himself mumbling "come on, McKinney, what's wrong with you? Aren't going to let the boys down, are you?" Thus pepped up, he'll tell one of his flustered opponents, "You watch me and I'll show you how to make that shot." He then makes it the way he did at Durham High School, which won 67 consecutive games. o- Lobos Offer Tempe Tilt A LBUQUERQUE, N. M., Feb. 17 •"• (AP)—The University of New Mexico today offered Arizona State Teachers College at Tempe a two- ;ame engagement here February :l-22 to make up an unplayed Border Conference basketball game scheduled at Tempe last week. George White, director of Lobo athletics, said the Border Conference commissioner would dispose of the case if no arrangement could be reached on the fill-in game. Due to a misunderstanding, Tempe did not havp the game on its books when the New Mexico team appeared at Tempe last Thursday, White said. The conference schedule called for a one-game appearance by Tempe here February 22. At state college tonight, Kermit Laabs, director of athletics, announced this week's two-game series between the Aggies and Tempe had been' changed from Thursday and Friday to Wednesday and Thursday, at the request of Tempe officials. This change would make possible Tempe's acceptance of the double date offered by the Lobos. TEMPE. Feb. 17—Arizona State Teachers College at Tempe accepted tonight an invitation to play New Mexico University a two-game series 21-22. in Albuquerque February Rudy Lavik, Tempe athletic director, notified New Mexico officials that the Bulldogs would play two games, instead of a single con•est as originally scheduled, to make up for an unplayed Border Conference fray booked here last Tempe's dates with the New Mexico Aggies at Las Cruces vyere changed from Thursday and Friday o Wednesdav and Thursday to permit the Bulldogs to play the extra game with New Mexico, Lavik said. Archery Meet Won By Moore (From Late Republic Edition Yesterday) Arrows belonging to A. Y. Moore dominated the center of the target as the Phoenician Archers held their February turnament yesterday at Encanto Park. Moore, scoring 610 to lead the men's American round, was trailed by Bob Buck, 549; Ben Rudderow, 543. and Merk Kemp, 395. Mary Thompson and Patsy Campbell with 536 and 235, featured bow-bending in the women s Columbia round. Junior Thompson scored 335 in the junior American round. Champion Shows Old Form To Gain 14th Title Victory PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 17—(AP)—The old Joe Louis—the Brown Bomber who was supposed to be on the road down—quit his kidding tonight. With a whistling right-hand smash that was just as explosive, just as sharp and just as damaging as any he ever has thrown, the dusky destroyer put Gus Dorazio to sleep in one minute, 30 seconds of the second round of their schedulec 15-round bout to successfully defend his world heavyweight championship for the 14th time. It was an altogether different Joe Louis than the fellow who was wild with his punches against Al McCoy in Boston less than two months ago. And it definitely was a far differtn fighting man than the slow-punching boxer who could do no. more damage to Red Bur man's chin than a feather duster less than three weeks ago in New York. This was the Louis who "rocks' en. and wrecks 'em." And the 15,902 fans who jammed Convention Hall—biggest crowd ever to see an indoor fight in Philadelphia —roared in*agreement. At 203 Mt, he was bigger than for any of his 13 previous title defenses, and while Gus too was heavier than for most of 'his previous fights, he still was 10 pounds lighter than Louis. But 10 pounds, or a hundred, it would have made no difference tonight. For this was more like the destroyer rated by many as the greatest puncer ever in the ring It was the heavy-duty cannon who sent Max Schmeling to a hospital who took Tony Galento apart and who has dominated the heavyweights like a dictator since he tore the title from gallant old Jim Braddock four years ago. For one round, he sparred around with Dorazio, trying to lure the low-slung South Philadelphia!! out of his crouch. Then, with the second round hardly under way, he started moving in. As Dorazio lunged forward, he ran right into a long, straight left that straightened him up. Before he could get down into his shell again, a right hand that traveled no more than six inches crashed flush against his chin with the effect of a 16-inch shell. The beetle-browed local boy hit the canvas on his face, and lay there, his nose digging into the resin, as Referee Irving Kutcher completed his count of 10. Gus wasn't quite sure afterward just what happened. "Why did the referee stop it?" he asked in his dressing room, apparently in the opinion it was a technical knockout instead of the clean-cut sleep-producing job it actually was. Louis just shrugged his shoulders with a job of work well done. "Guess ah ain't slipped too much," he told reporters in his dressing room. Up to that point, Gus showed he wasn't afraid even a little bit. He walked into Louis as though walking through the front door of his home in the first round. He threw several punches to the body and a short left to the head. In the closing seconds, Joe opened Gus up and rushed him into the ropes with a two-handed attack to the body. If tonight was any indication, Joe's next opponent—slated to be gigantic Abe Simon of New York in Detroit March 21—had better order himself a suit of armor-plate right now. However, Dorazio, despite his GIRLS TILTS CARDED (From Late Republic Edition Yesterday) "TWO games are scheduled for play °n the Monday Night Girls Basketball League at the Young Women't Christian Association tonight Garfield will meet Phoenix jXr College at 7:30 oUock and College the Ramblers will play Tempe an hour later.

At one point in the first round, he stood in a corner an tried to slug it out with the champion, which is like trying to play pat-a-cake with a buzz-saw. This rushing in was what finally proved his undoing, for he ran directly into the straight left which brought him erect before the right-hand crusher connected. He was speared on that jab like a lamb chop on a boarding house fork. On the other hand, Joe showed one thing—he is punching sharp and fast again. That alone should produce nightmares in the ranks of the heavyweights. Financially the fight was a success beyond even the fondest dreams of Louis and his fistic family. His gross gate was 557,522.62, far more than any indoor fight. ever drew in this city of brotherly love. Gus Dorazio Misses Count PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 17—(AP) Joe Louis put Gus Dorazio to sleep so soundly in the second round of their heavyweight championship fight at Convention Hall tonight that Gus didn't know he was counted out. "They shouldn't have stopped the fight," groaned Gus in his dressing room. "I hit him a couple of good ones in the stomach in the first round. I'd like to meet him again." Jimmy Wilson, porazio's trainer, said in a whisper: "He thinks they stopped the fight, but he was out cold." "Gus shouldn't have lunged in with that left iniook," continued Wilson. "He was off balance and wide open for that right cross on the button." All was serene in the champion's dressing room. "I got him with a short right cross," drawled Louis. "I shoved him off balance with my left and whipped across my right." "I got in one good uppercut in the first round. He tried to make a fight of it, but his bobbing and weaving didn't bother me once I got on to it." And the champion, who had hardly worked up a sweat, permitted himself a glimmer of a smile and walked off to his shower. In eight seasons Mel Ott, veteran outfielder of the Giants, drew 100 or more passes. o Illinois received from boxing shows last year $37,232. By WHITNEY MARTIN TSJEW YORK, Feb. 17—The No•^ Ire Dame shift has landed Frank Leahy at South Bend, and everybody seems quite happy about it except Boston College and the Irish assistant coaches who have had their jobs shot right out from under them. If the move is a happy one for Leahy, it couldn't happen to a nicer guy, or, if his record is an accurate yardstick, a more capable one. . There isn't a more gentlemanly, considerate or more modest man in the profession than the champion worrier from Winner. S. D. He never takes credit for anything, and if you were to admire a new hat he was wearing he'd probably say his wife picked it out. He's self-effacing to the vanishing point, but in his own sweet—that word best describes him—way he can handle a tough job better than most fog-horn, I-am-the- law guys who confuse noise with ability. Had he not already signed five-year Boston College contract his appointment would not have come as a surprise. In fact, his name was the first to pop into the heads of the fans in contemplating a successor to Elmer Layden. We even heard opinions expressed as far back as the last Bowl game at New Orleans Leahy would be the next lugar that Irish coach, and there were rumors that he was being scouted in that game by the Irish much as a rookie ballplayer would be given the once over by a major-league club. A year ago last fall we attended the Notre Dame-USC game at South Bend and heard vague rumblings of dissatisfaction with the state of football there. Nothing that growls here and there to the effect that Layden wasn't getting the most out of his material; that he had sophomores sitting on the bench who could be winning games for him. The rumblings never reached a roar. In fact, on the surface everything was serene. But we heard them again at New Orleans. One man, closely associated with the Notre Dame situation, put it this way: 'They aren't playing Notre Dame football. The players don't have that all-out effort, the abandon in their play, that they had under Rockne. Do you know the coach who has instilled that spirit into his men? Frank Leahy. Rockne touch." None other than He's got the Any criticism of Layden may be unfair. No two coaches operate under the same conditions, and Leahy may not have any better luck at Notre Dame than Layden had. Which wasn't bad at all, if you ask us, but still wasn't in keeping with the Notre Dame tradition of being up there at the top almost year after year. Almost doesn't count with the Irish. Leahy will bring a new offense with him. It still has many of the basic Rockne teachings, but it incorporates innovations that are Leahy's own, and we can summon up a vivid mental picture of the goggle-eyed astonishment of Irish fans when the backs start to deploy over the field like quail hunters and laterals zoom all over the landscape. If they' want color in the offense, they're going to get it. It is reported that Leahv and Rockne spent many hours discussing football when both were confined to a South Bend hospital, and Leahy possibly absorbed some of the psychology that, more than anything else, was the foundation of Rockne's success. At any rate, he's got that some- ihing that makes his pupils play their hearts out for him, to coin a phrase. And which brings his success story to the familiar end: P. S. —He got the job. Mission Five Edges Garfield, 27 To 26 (From Late Republic Edition Yesterday) Father Emmett's Mission edged past the Garfield seniors, 27 to 26, :n a close Work Projects Administration Basketball League game last night. In other contests, the Harmon seniors defeated South Phoenix, 48 to 40; Madison's unlimited-division team defeated Father Emmett's Mission, 53 to 47, and the Exiles defeated Garfield, 55 to 48, n another unlimited division game. Young Chisox Star Faces Bright Career -VTEW YORK, Feb. 17—(UP)— 1 ' Bob Kennedy of the Chicago White Sox, youngest regular player in the American League, is head^ ing for his second full season only as a major leaguer, but already has shown promise of being one of the circuit's best third basemen. Kennedy will not be 21 year? old until August 18, and started his professional career when he lacftr ed several months of being "S years old. He still was in high school when he visited Comiskey Park and asked for a trial. 'You're too young kid," saul Coach Billy Webb. "Come back ij a year, and I'll look you over.'" ^ Today, only Jim Tabor of£ the Boston Red Sox comes ^ close to throwing as fast a ball ; as Kennedy when he whips the- pellet across the field to first;: base, but the Boston man- lacks Kennedy's ability to" throw strikes. When Coach Webb gave Kennedy the brush-off, Bob was -a pitcher for an American League junior team and blew his fast ball past the batters so effectively that he had four no-hit games to his credit. Turned down at Comiskey Park, he joined the Duffy Florals, crack semipro outfit, as a third baseman. Late in the year, he called at Comiskev Park again and when he whistled a few from third to first, Webb was impressed. S6 much so that he recommended the boy to Dallas but he was turned over to Vicksburg after about 40 games and then shuttled to Long 1 view in 1938. He led the East Texas League third-sackers in assists that year. Next year with Shreveport he finally found his batting eye and was called up to join • the White Sox. He seemed , destined to get no further thas a berth as a utility infieldtf until regular Jackie 1 turned up with ailing eye Manager Jimmy Dykes w; forced to shift Eric McNair second and installed Kenne at third. "I don't think I'll ever for my first big-league game in 1! says Kennedy.
