I ^^ ^^ ^""B New York UP* o (/l — ne i, fu i, game of basketball seems to be that the players who can get away with the most score the oftenest. . That's what a handful- of visiting conches were discussing indirectly over Gene Leone's steaks. . . . First it was Yale's Howard Hobson pointing out that a wider foul lane or some other method of loosening up play under the basket would improve basketball. . . . "i' m especially conscious of this because we just played Stanford" said Hobby. "They have about four G-foot-4 boys and they gave us a beating on the offensive boards. That was their offense— to go down the middle and play for the rebounds." ... Nat Holman of CCNY agreed: "The big man has made it a different game — not a better one." . . . Solemn-faced Vadal Peterson of Utah then offered a suggestion that officials change ends of the court oftener during games. "No 2 officials officiate exactly the same type of ball and the team that gets the less strict official behind it has a great advantage," Peterson maintained. Rupp Deal Blue Foster of Miami (Ohio) supplied a lighter note in proceedings with this one on Kentucky's Adolph Rupp. . . . When Rupp took his team to Notre Dame (where he had absorbed several lickings) last season he noticed a grey-haired gent Veeck Says Feller to Get Salary Cut Cleveland, r/P)_The Cleveland News quoted President Bill Veeck of the Cleveland Indians Tuesday as saying he will ask his onetime top pitcher, Bob Feller, to take a - salary cut in 1949. In a story by Ed McAuley of the News staff, Veeck conceded saying in Oklahoma City: "I'd like to make as much myself next year as Feller's cut in pay will be." When Feller signed last year for around $82,000 he became the highest paid baseball pitcher in history. Veeck, in the News story continued: "I did say that in Oklahoma City. And it could be true without meaning very much. There are at least 50 guys in the major leagues who make more than I do. "I plan to offer Bob a contract under which his attendance bonuses will start at a higher crowd figure, so naturally, if we draw the same number of people we drew last season, he'll collect less money. "But I guess he'll still be able to get by." Feller was in Van Meter, Iowa, for his sister's wedding. McAuley quoted him, as saying: "I didn't have as good year last season as I had in 1947, so I'm in line for a cut. On the other hand, the club drew a lot of people and made a lot of money, so I don't think the cut should be deep enough to put me out of business. But I won't have any trouble coming to terms with Bill." BOXSCORES ST. JOSEPH'S— :<•> I Welsh C'nbbell . !.. :j I-attimt-r ' ] ;) J. Colloton •> 1). Colloton ...'.'.'.'.

S. league. Side Splitter Ex-Jockey Clifton Powers won $9,020 on a radio quiz show last week. He promptly invested $4,000 in a house, then spent $5,000 more on a race horse,^ which he named "Break the Bank" after the program. . . .

Voigts, Waldorf Want Dry Field for Roses Game By BOB MYERS Pasadena, Cal., (£>)_The 2 Rose Bowl coaches are going to be unhappy if the Tournament of Roses sunshine luck runs out New Year's day. A long range forecast has not been issued as yet, but amateur predicters, watching the rain pelt southern California Monday began to worry that the California- Northwestern contest may be a battle of the mud. Both coaches, Bob Voigts of Northwestern and Lynn Waldor] of the California Bears, are on record as praying for 'clear skies and a fast field. "This is a big game, and rain and mud will simply ruin it foi the players and the spectators. It will just be tough luck if it does come up* bad weather," said Voigts. The same sentiments came from Pappy Waldorf. The Wildcats did not play a single game in the mud this season They have practiced several times in the muck, however—including Monday. The Rose Bowl for years has enjoyed amazing luck in the weather line. Actually, the last time it let loose from above was the 1934 game, which is known as the year of the big flood. It is also well remembered for Columbia's 7-0 upset via the ancient hidden ball trick over a heavily favored''Stan- ford eleven. It poured by the tons the night before, fire department pumps were employed to help drain the water off the field, and it rained during the contest. Strong young men charged $1 to carry ladies through the mud from their cars to the stadium, and the place was further inundated at the final gun by the burst of Stanford tears. Also, Coach Lou Little may have added a few tears of his own, caused from excessive laughing up his sleeve.

Justice missed Monday's practice because of a post-Christmas stomach ache and Rodgers suffered a recurrence of his migraine headaches.

After scoring twice to lead his Pueblo Junior college eleven to a 32-0 win over La Junta, Co'.o., Junior coliege, Halfback Frank Flood won a Southern Colorado Golden Gloves championship with a 3rd round technical knockout the same evening. By SKIPPER PATRICK Kansas City, (/p)_The 2 smallest players among the 130 cagers m the Big Seven conference basketball tournament turned in the biggest jobs in Monday night's opening round. Whatever happens to Iowa State in the remaining 3 days of the tournament won't matter with the 5,500 fans who saw Iowa State's Don Ferguson, 5-foot 7-incher, and Bob Pelersen, 5-8, shoot the Cyclones to a 56-54 victory over Harvard university. Come From Behind Their deadly long shots in the 2nd half offset Harvard's height advantage and overcame a 7-point halftime deficit. Kansas State, the defending tournament and conference champion, downed the Nebraska Cornhuskers 48-34 in the second half of the opening twin bill. Completing the first round Tuesday night will be the Kansas Jayhawks versus Missouri's Tigers at 8 p. m. (Central Standard Time) and Oklahoma against Colorado at 9:30 o'clock. Harvard's towering team coasted to a 27-21 halftime lead over Iowa State mainly because of its ability to make good on free shots. The easterne'-s missed only 2 of their 15 charily tosses in the first period and only 4 of 24 for the evening. Iowa State's 2 pee-wee players got busy in the first minute of the 2nd period and their long tosses gained Iowa State a 43-43 tie with ""a minutes remaining. Petersen put the Cyclones in front with a long shot. Then he teamed with Ferguson to withstand a last minute Harvard challenge as Iowa State successfully froze the ball. Petersen Tops Scorers Petersen led the winners with 12 points and Ferguson got 11, all in the 2nd period. John Rockwell counted 17 points for Harvard tops for the night. Kansas State's sophomore-dominated Wildcats sped to a 29-15 lalftimc lead over Nebraska, then marked time in the 2nd period as Coach Jack Gardner substituted freely. Nine of the 14 Wildcat players scored, Veteran Jack Dean getting 14 points. Each of the 8 teams will play 5 games. Harvard and Nebraska vill be paired against Tuesday's osers Wednesday afternoon.

Long shots by Ryan and Jerry Kunz and a gift shot by Nick DiGregorio put Holy Family ii front 5-0 to open the game. Bu. the Johawks, led by Glenn Cabbell, came back for a 6-5 lead. Holy Family came right back and was in front 12-8 by the end of the first quarter. The lead was stretched to 15-9 before Cabbell scored again for St. Joe and at this point Cabbell had 8 of 11 of the Johawk points. Big Johawk Push It was Cabbell's bucket which got the Johawks moving and they blanked the Maroons the remainder of the half while pumping home points on their own behalf and at intermission the Jo- hawks were in front 20-15. When Tom Welsh scored on a fast break in the 3rd period, St. Joe commanded a 27-19 lead and it looked as though the northside club was fading, but fast. But they weren't and when Jerry Kunz hit a pair of free throws just before the 3rd quarter ended the St. Joe margin was cut to 28-25. Clincher at One Minute Nick DiGregorio scored a bucket and gift shot to get the Maroons in front 30-28 and Holy Family never again trailed in the game although St. Joe got back into a iie on Cabbell's free throw at 32-32 with a little less than 2 minutes to play. With exactly one minute to play, Ryan sent home his 6th ficldgoal and that was the ;ame with Ralph McCarron add- ng a gift shot when John Colloton fouled out with just one second to play in the game. The Maroons, noted for their slam-bang style of play, went into a cautious control game for nearly =5 minutes of the final period and t worked to near perfection as St. Joe seldom had the ball. DiGregorio, though missing numerous shots, added 10 points to the Maroon total. Playing the By WILL GRIMSLEY New York, </P)—College basketball s thinning ranks of unbeaten teams reeled Tuesday under the heaviest single blow of the young campaign. Four quintets were swept from the perfect list — Washington State, Canisius, Indiana and Purdue. This left only 18 major teams still without a blemish. Of these, 7 had to survive tough tests Monday night. Outfits managing to carry on without a setback were Bradley Stanford, La Salle of Philadelphia', Western Kentucky, Duquesne, Lawrence Tech and Alabama. Long Streak Snapped The season's longest winning string was snapped when Washington State, which had scored 10 straight victories, was tripped by U.C.L.A., 54-44, in the Pacific coast conference tournament at San Francisco. Bradley thus became the nation's biggest winner, achieving No. 10 in a row at the expense of St. Mary's of California 69-58. Canisius, which had won 6, was toppled by Western Kentucky at Buffalo, N. Y., 65-55, giving" the Blue Grass boys their 7th triumph without reversal. Indiana bowed to Butler 64-55 and Purdue lost to Notre Dame 51-50 on Leo Barnhorst's free throw in the last 10 seconds in a doubleheader at Indianapolis. Stanford Wins 9th Stanford's Indians won their 9th straight by humbling Oregon 70-62 in the-PCC tournament- one of 3 tournaments that got into the holiday swing. The other meets were the Big 7 at Kansas City and the all-college event at Oklahoma City. The program was further spiced by doubleheaders at Madison Square Garden in New York, Convention Hall in Philadelphia and Buffalo, N. Y. The PCC tournament also saw California trounce Washington, the defending conference champions, 73-49 and -Southern California upset Oregon State 60-40. La Salle and Lawrence Tech of Detroit joined Western Kentucky as teams that now have lined up 7 straight victories. La Salle had to overcome a 13-point deficit to whip Louisville 76-71 at Convention Hall in Philadelphia. Utah won the first game of this show, beating St. Joseph's of Philadelphia 78-54. Lawrence Tech won over Colorado State 45-43. Duquesne took its 4th by conquering Rutgers Another tournament was to open—the Los Angeles invitational—and some more damage will threaten the undefeated ranks.

Bill Penn, left halfback on the football squad, was named senior president; Lowell Bailey, 1949 baseball captain, was elected junior president; Roman De Sanctis, basketball forward, was chosen sophomore president and Doug Ward, who is a track man, took the freshman prexy job.

Oklahoma Ags Have Balance in Delta Bowl By PHIL DESSAUER Stjllwater, Okla., (U.R)—The irritating thing about the Oklahoma A & M football team—from one viewpoint at least—is that nobody is an All-American. Give the opposition a Doak Walker or a Charlie Justice to watch, and the boys would at least know where to look for the whirlwind. But with the Cowboys from Stillwater it's strictly blind man's buff. Divided Stardom Consider the "whom-do-we- have-to-stop" problem of William and Mary, the Aggies' Delta Bowl opponent, when the strategists look over this record- In the A & M-Wichita game, Haliback Bill Grimes took the play with his long runs, one of them 80 yards for a touchdown. Against Texas Christian Aggie Quarterback Bob Cook did most of the dirty work with long-range passes. A week later, the spotlight found Fullback Bob Meinert. who passed and rar Denver into the ground. Quarterback Jack Hartman, another dead-eye passer, made San Francisco forget all the other names it had memorized. But against Temple, it was Halfback Kenny Rool who ran wild. In the Kansas clash, Grimes had another big afternoon, and both Hartman and Meinert took picks on Kansas State. Which one of these starred against Oklahoma? None of them —Halfback Jim Spavital made both Aggie touchdowns, one on a 57-yard dash. So well distributed was the season s scoring that Hartman led the club—and made only one touchdown. He kicked 25 extra points. Good Aggie Lin^ The all-everything experts also haven t pitched many posies to the Aggie line, but William and Mary would do well to pass over this fact very lightly indeed. The Cowboys outrushed every team they met this year except TCU and Oklahoma. And if William and Mary wants any evidence about the Aggie line the up-front lads from Oklahoma have striking testimony. The Sooners' 2 fine sets of forwards powered Oklahoma to the Big Seven championship. But when they met the Aggies the grunting and shoving was practically a dead heat—247 yards net rushing for the Sooners, 244 for A & M. And at the final whistle the Sooners were gladly giving up a safety, happy to get out with a 19-15 victory. The Aggies' 6-3 record is better than it looks. They lost by 7 points to TCU, 6 to Kansas and 4 to Oklahoma. What about the first game of 1949 at Memphis? Lanky Coach Jim Lookabaugh doesn't, go out on any limbs, but his boys know what he means when he says: "It'll be a ball game." some RECREATION BOWLING LEAGUE Won 1st 2nd 3rd H.C. Tot. riym.
