Lobos Offer Tempe Tilt Lead Taken By Wyoming DENVER, Feb. 17— (AP) — Six •^ consecutive victories shot Wyoming, a big preseason favorite, 'into unchallenged possession of the Bie Seven Conference basketball lead today for the first time this season. Moreover, the Cowboys are in the enviable position of playing their! two closest pursuers, Utah and! Colorado, one against the other in I the closing weeks of the title scamper. Wyoming has defeated the second-place Ties twice and third-place Colorado's defending champions once. The leaders will tackle CU 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. j Sophomore Ken Sailors' six field ;oals carried Wyoming to a 36-31 victory over Utah Friday, as the Redskins, ruggedest defensive club erne engagement here February 21.22 to make up an unplayed Bor- jer Conference basketball game scheduled at Tempe last week. decree White, director of Lobo athletics, said the Border Conference commissioner would dispose of the case if so arrangement could he reached on the fill-in game.

Colorado's Buffaloes,' although beaten in three of their first five games, have now captured four in succession to cling to third place with only three league games remaining on their schedule.

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'* acceptance of the double date offered by the Lobos. ! foe in their fieldhouse. The biggest jump of the week was made by Brigham Young, advancing from sixth to fourth by reason of a 40-36 success against Colorado State and a SI-SI overtime verdict over Denver Saturday night.

The Greek matster substituted for Chief Little Wolf when the colorful Indian was unable to appear because of an attack of ptomaine poisoning, and the Zaharias substitution meant little to O'Mahoney. After an hour of hectic battling, the Irish ace climbed out of the ring with his second triumph in two appearances here, and a possible bout with Vincent Lopez next week if Promoter John Contos can arrange the affair.

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 in the field and at bat, and may solve the third-base problem. Bob Warren, veteran infielder, looks to be a much improved player, while Prather 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 serious test in conference play March 21 when the club goes to Yuma to face a veteran Criminal nine which . Then it happened. The Greek became enraged because of his inability to break a wicked wrist lock hold—so he promptlv gouged his way out. And from then on he put on a hectic battle, that had Referee Jerry Markus on the jump trying to keep things under control. But the Irisher caught up with him after 42 minutes. 17 seconds and turned loose his famous "Irish whin" to take the first fall. They came back for more after the rest period. O'Mahoney again applying a series of his famous holds to have Zaharias in a bad way just as the time-keeper sig- nalled the end of one hour, the time limit for the bout. Hard Boiled Hagcerty proved too much for Terrible Terry McGinnis in the semifinal. Despite his monicker. Terrible Terry decided to turn scientific—and that's where he made his mistake. The 265- pound Haegerty would have none of that stuff and proceeded to take the first fall with a backhreaker in 12 minutes and the second with a questionable stranglehold in seven minutes. The Cardiff Giant took the hero 14th Title Victory PHILADELPHIA, Feb. IT—(AP)—The old Joe Louis—the Brown Bomber who was supposed to be on the road down—quit his kid ding tonight. With a whistling right-hand smash that was just as explosive, jus 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 scheduled 15-round bout to successfully defend his world heavy-weight 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 different fighting man than the slow-punching boxer who could do no more damage to Red Burman's chin than a feather duster less than three weeks ago in New York. This was the Louis who "rocks' 'em and wrecks "em." And the 15,90i! fans who jammed Convention Hall—biggest crowd ever to indoor'fight in Philadelphia i in agreement, i'.-i, he was bigger than for any of his 13 previous title defenses, and while Gus top 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 puncher 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 over the jumps in the opening] there, his nose digging into the bout. The bearded bad man tossed resin, as Referee Irving Kutcher everything in the books at HardVj completed his count of 10. Gus Kruskamp. then finished him off after 17 minutes of mat mayhem with a broad jump. o Overtime Tilt Won By Y-Coeds The Y-Coeds captured a 26-25 victory from the Phoenix Hi-Y quintet in an overtime tilt in the poDFREY'S "Gluttons romped into Young Men s Christian Association iu- lead in the Phoenix Linen Suj.

Tud Kent, six-time winner who last won in '28, favored setters, and raced mostly Llewellyns. 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 sen-ice 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, a com- munity 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.

"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.

At one point in the first round, he stood in a corner and 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 $57,522.62, far more than any indoor fight ever drew in this city of brotherly love. Trail By WHITNEY MARTIN XTEW YORK, Feb. 17—The tre Dame shift has No landei Frank Leahy at South Bend, am everybody seems quite happy abou it except Boston College and th Irish assistant coaches who hav had their jobs shot right out from under them. If the move is a happy one fo Leahy, it couldn't happen to nicer guy, or, if his record is ar accurate yardstick, a more cap able one. There isn't a more gen tlemanly, considerate or more mod est man in the profession than th 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.

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 ev erything was serene. But we heard them again at New Orleans One man, closely associated with the Notre Dame situation, put ii this way: "They aren't playing Notre Dame football. The players don' have that all-out effort, the abandon in their play, that they hat under Rockne. Do you know the coach who has instilled that spirit into his men? None other than Frank Leahy. He's got the Rockne touch." Any criticism of Layden may be unfair. No two coaches operate under the same conditions, anc Leahy' may not have any better "uck at Notre Dame than Layden lad. Which wasn't bad at all, if you ask us, but still wasn't in keeping with the Notre Dame tra- " the 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 Leahy and dition of being up there at top almost year after year. 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 something 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.

Young Chisox^ Star Faces Bright Career VTEW YORK, Feb. IT— (UP)41 ' Bob Kennedy of the Chicago White Sox, youngest regular player in the American League, is heading 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 years ' old until August 18, and started hfe professional career when he laeg- ed several months of being ~tf years old. He still was in higfi school when he visited Comiskey Park and asked for a trial. ."You're too young kid," said. Coach Billy Webb. "Come back in a year, and I'll look you over.'" Today, only Jim Tabor of; the Boston Red Sox comes;close to throwing as fast & 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 Comiskey Park again and when he whistled a few from third to first, Webb was impressed. So much so that he recommended the boy to Dallas but he was turned over to Vicksburg after about 40 games and then shuttled to Longview 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 than a berth as a utility infielder until regular Jackie Hayes, turned up with ailing eyes. Manager Jimmy Dykes was,, forced to shift Eric McNair to, second and installed Kennedy- at third. "I don't think I'll ever forget my first big-league game in 1940," says Kennedy. "I didn't get « hit, but neither did anybody else, because Bobby Feller pitched a no- hitter against us." USF Names Athletic Head S AN FRANCISCO, Feb. 17—(Uty The University of San Francisco board of athletic control today appointed James R. (Jimmy) Needles, one-time USF coach, as its athletic director. The board also discussed apr~ pointment of a new football ' coach to succeed George Mai-, ley, resigned.
