It is an additional surprise to learn that the "Little Poison" of the links is the hit of a show designed to attract fellows who feel more natural' sightinc along a gun barrel or trollinc for tarpon than hack- jn B a little white ball all over the countryside. But twice daily the Lexington •venue hunters, trappers and fish- f-men desert the snakes and hoot wls.

Runyan, who quit the winter tournament circuit in California, to stage the golf act, will not (to on with the show from here, but will rejoin the tourinp professionals in Florida next week. He hopes that the daily workouts during his act have improved his form over his shon-inp in the West. Paul Runyan probably is the best iend that the golf duffer has. Be- ting slight in stature, without the Itelky forearm muscle and wrist |™er of most leading professionals, I'unyan has had to build his game Iirou'nd body action, a full swing jud extreme accuracy. He believes Cat his case represents the one of the average week-end golfer who io»s not have terrific muscular Ellis Ross, Champions Feature Amateur Boxing Program Tonight Slickest Star On Ice- AH of his instruction methods are jointed toward the average golfer, ttiich he says is one who scores round 100 for 18 holes. Last year » perfected a paddle-handled put- sr which he believes is the duffer's nswer tn better work on the p>ens. He sold 700 of them last tear and expects to sell at least 1000 this year. "My latest campaign for the aver,_,i> player is to eliminate sand traps from golf courses," he said "I believe that golf courses of the future will have very few traps and will depend more upon natural llopes and contours for hazards. "Despite what some of my colleagues think, it will cut more strokes of the average jolfers' seore than it will the experts. For instance say that the pro and the dub both have taken the same number of shots and lie in a trap on the edge of the green. More often than not, the pro will Wast out and (top his hall close enough to the pin to get down in one putt. Meantime, the duh blasts and either goes over the green in the trap on the other side or buries his ball a couple of inches in the sand. That's where most of those 8's and 9's ire born on the average card. "On the kind of course I envision the pro still would have the advantage because from the same spol on the fairway he could crjip more accurately and have a better chance to can his first putt. But, the duf- Lfo. not frightened by having to jtome out of a trap, could play ar k asy rolling shot to the green—anc lien, if he had one of my paddle- pip putters, well—" (We sell no advertising.)

Agile Ellis, cleaned out Arizona's stock of lightweights in a methodical 1940 tampaign and appeared headed for the Diamond 3elt laurels in San Francisco. But he picked up eight stray onces somewhere between the semifinals' and weighmg-in time for the climax bout and the punchin' man from Arizona was ruled out of the tourney. He's let the pounds add up and he'll make his welter debut tonight in the feature clouting of the Optimist Club's simon- pure program at Legion Arena. Ross' first welter- foe will be Allen Cantor, who has been improving at a rapid clip. The 145- pound Cantor, however, doesn't ;et much more from the prophets than sympathy—he's still a little short of matching Ross in all departments. The extra weight that forced Ross out of the lightweight ranks tiave added power to an already potent punch—which he delivers with equal authority from either hand. Cantor will hold a three-pound pull over Ross. Heavy-hitting Ted Dennis will defend his newly-acquired heavyweight laurels against the boy he pried them away from—Dave Thurman. Thurman, fast as a cat in spite of his 180 pounds, is a bell-to-bell glove tosscr and the encounter should be hotter than a four- alarm fire. In another title affray, gaunt Tony Riveras will see what he can do about staving off the challenge of Gilbert Clickee, a 124-pound Indian pugilist who is not at all discouraged by the dismal fate of Charley Scott. Scott, who staged a fistic argument with Riveras last week, lasted approximately four minutes. Clickee is reported to be a thudding hitter. He'll have to match his offensive talents with the ability to hand take a few bombs—or whooping left- he won't be around to hear the bell. Jole Gastelo, who has been doing better than fair in his quest for a bout with Mike Moreno, the state bantam champ, will hook up with Dean Eliason in what should be a fast affair. Both will weigh 118. Benny Guerra, the current lightweight king, will resume his feud with clever Percy Moore and if the bout measures up to their last one, it'll be a slugaroo from the opening bell. Guerra will scale 133, Moore two pounds more. Red Turner, 173-pound roundhouse artist, will face Sleepy Connor and although the fight may be short on style, it should' be packed with whooping blows and plenty of action. Connor will be outweighed by five pounds. In other bouts, John Steward, a 165-pounder who bleeds like a Hapsburg at the mere sight of a glove, will trade punches with Bob Price, 170, and C. L. Stewart 125. will meet Ruffin Brunner, 125.

DOi PACES MIGHTY BOSTON BRUINS: His drive toward a new record for assists keeps Bill Cowley in front of all other National League scorers, and makes the Boston Bruins' center the greatest playmaker in hockey. His play has been a bright spot as the Bruins soared to a new loop record by going unbeaten in 20 consecutive games. Bruins Tackle Tempe Frosh Quint Tonight HE Phoenix Junior College Bears and the Tempe Bullpups tangle at the Bruin gymnasium at 8 o'clock tonight in the tnlrd of their annual four basketball games. Coach George (Dutch) Hoy's club dropped both the previous .games this season, but gave the high-scoring Bullpups a scare in the second. They hope to mar the great record of the Tempe frosh tonight by handing them their first defeat of the season. Hoy will go to bat with a line-up containing only three of the players who have been listed as regulars in most games this season. Burkley Curlee, tall guard, came down with influenza at Tucson last week-end, while Alan Rand, center, also has been on the sick list. " Hoy is using Paul Campbell at guard, with Floyd Weed, erstwhile forward, shifted to center, and Johnny Howard stepping in at forward. The combination clicked in the Saturday game at Tucson when the Bruins come back to trounce Stevenson Park Fives Gain Split (From Late Republic Edition Yesterday) The Stevenson Park quintets divided two tilts in Work Projects Administration Basketball League Jlay on the armory court, the Bantams defeating Garfield, 20 to L6, and the juniors dropping a 21-12 decision to Booker T. Washington. In other games, the Verde Park Midgets trounced the Optimists 22-5; the Madison Juniors defeated Harmon Park, 29-23, and the Garfield Seniors defeated University Links Stars Polish Play For Club Meet A RMED with high hopes and their •"• favorite woods and irons, a sizeable portion of the field that will compete in the Phoenix Country Club's 12th annual invitational golf tournament starting Thursday *ave their games an 18-hole polishing yesterday, and will wind up drills tbday. And yesterday's practice firing hiked the stock of a handful of ;olfers already firmly established as the fair-haired boys who will rap out 18 holes of qualifying golf :omorrow and then get together for three days of match play. Jack Trimble, the state amateur champion, may as well have tacked up a sign on the golf shop door informing all and sundry that he'll be as dangerous as a grizzly bear with a headache. He came whistling in yesterday a full swing ahead of standard figures, putting together scores of 34 and 36 for a neat 70. Tom Lambie, who posted a blistering 68 in an 18-hole outing during the Western Open here, was one stroke behind Trimble yesterday, and if he holds to that sort of scoring—or improves on it— he'll be among the low-number boys when the qualifying junket is over. Victor C. Armstrong, jr., is rated the tourney's "dark horse." He turned in a 74 yesterday and has his sights set on lowering that figure when the formal firing begins. , Dr. E. Payne Palmer, jr., will be another of the meet's highly- regarded figures. He whipped over the first nine in regulation figures. Young Chester Goldberg, jr., has been flirting with par consistently. Bracketed with the aforementioned as favorites will be Kim Bannister, the defending champion; Bob Goldwater, finalist last year, and Barge Pease, former Arizona amateur king. Right behind Phoenix Country Club, Denver will have one of the strongest representations in point of numbers. Four golfers—H. H. Clark, J. H. Ricketts, Charles O. Voight and Dr. George H. Dorsey— are entered from the Rocky Mountain metropolis. Other entrants include Harry Robertson, jr., Arnold Curtis, Donald Kellogg. Dick Walsh, Tom Jones, Ned S. Leonard, Jim Canning, Earl Mayer, Harold Kenworthy and Clem Webster III, all [of Phoenix: C. A. Rebadow, Buffalo, N. Y.; Arthur N. Powers, senior champion at Olympia Fields, Chicago; Everett R. Hamilton, St. Louis; L. A. Coleman, Detroit; Walter H. Johnson, Chicago; S. J. Graham, Greenwich,. Conn.; R. A. Stranahan, Toledo. O.; and Karl Mangum, Flagstaff. About 125 linksmen are expected to enter the meet. iHE fourth annual Phoenix city - Women's .golf tournament will get' under way at 9:30 o'clock this morning over the Eencanto Park Course, and when the sun goes DefendingChamp Favored To Keep Tourney Laurels Park, 38-21, to gain teams from that park.

Overtime Tilt Won By Y-Coeds (From Late Republic Edition Yesterday) The Y-Coeds captured a 26-25 victory from' the Phoenix Hi-Y quintet in an overtime tilt in the Young Men's Christian Association Older Boys Church Basketball League on the YMCA court last night. The teams were deadlocked at 23-all at the end of regulation play, Brooks of the winners taking scoring honors with 18 points. In other games. First Methodist trounced First Baptist, 33-9; North Phoenix Hi-Y edged Desert Mission, 27-26, Central Methodist topped the Molokans, 15-12, and the Presbyterians jolted Capitol Methodist, 25-12. In senior league play tonight, Garfield and the Catholic Saints will tangle at 7 o'clock, and Phalanx will meet Capitol Christian at 7:45 o'clock. the Wildkittens after losing Friday's contest. Hoy is confident his club will not be weakened by the absence of the two veterans especially against a club containing as few tall players as the Bullpups. Coach Bill Kajikawa's club is a combination of sharpshooters, dangerous from any point on the floor. Hoy admits their scoring ability but thinks they will find the perspective different enough to handicap their shooting on the Bruin court where his own club should play its best game. They have not played a game there, since January 21. Hoy will be a trifle short on reserve strength but may be able to make use of Rand if he is needed. The ailing center was out for practice yesterday. Eugene Norwood and Hank Pickrell, who have been alternating at leading the Bruin scoring of late, appear in prime shape. ivith 764-865-843—2.472.

Garden Mat Feature Won By O'Mahoney (From Late Republic Edition Yesterday) /~>HRIS ZAHARIAS, one of those ^ "Crying Greeks" of the wrestling game, met up with Danno O'Mahoney, the Irish pride, in the main-event bout at Madison Square Garden last night, but it didn't turn out to be such a happy event for Zaharias. 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. Lopez tentatively agreed, to meet ' the winner. Zaharias is noted for his rough INJURIES HIT FROSH TEMPE, Feb. 18—Coach Bill Kajikawa of the undefeated freshman basketball team of Arizona State Teachers College here today feared that a month's inactivity will hamper his squad in its third game with the Phoenix Junior College Bears in Phoenix Wednesday night. He was downhearted as the Tempe frosh took their final workout. "Harold Allen has practiced only two days since he hurt a. hand two weeks ago," Kajikawa said, "and Fenton Overson has a sty on his right eye and can hardly see." Allen tore ligaments in his left hand in a practice tilt with Peoria High School. The hand is still swol- en and discolored, and the big center star of the Bullpups is rusty for lack of practice, Kajikawa reported. A third handicap for the Bull- pups will be Ted Olea's multiple athletic activities. Olea is practicing every afternoon with the spring football players and then rushes in to work with the cagers. Football and basketbal just don't go together very well, with the result that Olea's stellar ball-handling and floor work may take a beating in the game. Undefeated in 12 starts, including a triumph over the Bulldog varsity, Coach Kaji- kawa's yearlings are practically in' as champions of the Arizona junior college-frosh basketball league. They have onlv five games remaining, two with the Bears, two with the Gila College Monsters and one with the university frosh. o Bill Komenich, who plays basketball at Marquette, once attended the University of Belgrade. The war turned him back to these shores. tactics in brothers. the But ring, as are he surprised his the fans by discarding his usual tricks at the start of the bout. And for the first 13 minutes, Zaharias turned in a clean, scientific performance, matching O'Mahoney hold for hold. Then it happened. The Greek became enraged because of his inability to break a wicked wrist lock hold—so he promptly gouged his way out. And from then on he put on a hectic battle, that Referee Jerry Markus on had 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 whip" 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 Hagjrerty 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 Haggerty would have none of that stuff and proceeded to take the first fall with a backbreaker in 12 minutes and the second with a questionable stranglehold in seven minutes. The Cardiff Giant took the hero over the jumps in the opening bout The bearded had man tossed everything in the books at Hardy Kruskamp, then finished him off after 17 minutes of mat mayhem with a broad jump. Coyote Five Tunes For Mesa Clash rpHE Phoenix Union High School •*• Coyotes yesterday began to polish their shooting game to prepare for the duel with the undefeated Mesa High School cagers booked for the Coyote court Friday night. Coach Vernon Tuckey gave them a rest Monday to recover from the hard work of last week's district tournament and did not call for any scrim- mage work yesterday although he expects to send them through a hard workout today. Yesterday's drill was devoted chiefly to solving the problem of penetrating the tight zone defense the Jackrabbits set against the Coyotes in Mesa when they stopped the Tuckey club, 44-19, and allowed them hardly as many shots in four quarters as they normally get in one. It may be possible that Tuckey will vary his usual short-pass, short-shot game Friday night by using occasional long shots to draw out the Rabbit defense. Tuckey's difficulty is that the tall Jackrabbit guards should take all defensive rebounds, permitting Phoenix only one shot at a time and making an inaccurate long- range game extremely costly. Tuckey spent a little time yesterday in planning a defense to stop Junior Crum, Mesa's elongated scoring machine, who shoots with either hand, rebounds at both ends of the court, and personally scored us much as the entire Coyote tram when the clubs met at Mesa. The Mesa club is built around Crum, Who can do everything a prep eager can be expected to do. If the Coyotes can stop him they may upset the East Central champions as effectively as they did a favored Tucson club when it invaded Phoenix a month ago. o Contracts Inked By Three Cards ST. LOUIS, Feb. 18—(INS)— Outfielders Ernie Koy, Harry Walker and John Wyrostek have signed their 1941 contracts, the- St. Louis Cardinals announced today. The club now has 23 players under contract. Among those agreeing to terms yesterday-were Gus Mancuso, vet>ran catcher obtained from Brooklyn in the deal which sent Catcher Mickey Owen to the Dodgers, and Estel Crabtree and Coaker Triplett, outfielders. Meanwhile, Johnny Mize, hard- hitting Cardinal first baseman, remains unsigned. It was reportec that Mize, who is now at Hot Springs, Ark., had returned unsigned a second contract offered him by the club. Branch Rickey, vice-president ol the Cardinals, said he understood Mize would be in St. Louis Saturday. Rickey said he did not know whether Mize planned to confer with Cardinal officials regarding salary terms. Several weeks ago Mize and club officials held a conference, but failed to agree on contract terms. o : — Bout Decision Draws Fans' Ire COLUMBUS, 0., Feb. 18—(AP)— Roscoe Toles, Michigan heavyweight fighter, and Jack (Buddy) Walker, claimant to the Ohio heavy throne, battled to a 10-round draw tonight. Both are colored. Walker was knocked down for a count of nine in the fifth round, and a near-capacity house in Columbus Auditorium booed when the draw decision was announced. Toles weighed 199, Walker 193. The Lafayette-Western Maryland football game originally scheduled for Sept. 26 has been shifted to Nov. 14. down Sunday, the golfer who won the 1940 crown probably will still be wearing it. The defending champion is Mrs. W. E. McClure, jr., and the clubhouse clairvoyants can't see anyone else in the crystal ball but her. She won the title last year by breezing past Betty Putnam, University of Arizona coed, with a 5-and-4 count, and she's lost none of her touch since then. From the 18-hole qualifying outing today to the 36-hole finals Sunday , the prophets have cast Mrs. McClure as the; pace setter. Thelma Carr, who won the first two titles, won't be present and IMss Putnam, the 1940 medalist, hadn't put in an appearance last night, although she has signified an intention of entering. After the qualifying session arranges the entrants into flights, there'll be three days of 18-hole outings before the Sunday Climax. The number of entries is expected to fall below last year's record 36. However, entries will be accepted this morning when the majority of local golfers are expected to enter the title battle. • One of the high lights of today's play will be an exhibition by Mrs. Opal S. Hill, nationally known golf star. Mrs. Hill will -give a demonstration of various golf shots, then will team with Mrs. McClure for a nine-hole match.

Art Jackson offsel two scored by Syl Apps tonighl when the Boston Bruins stretched their new National Hockey League unbeaten record to 22 games by gaining a 2-2 overtime tie with the Toronto Maple Leafs before a 16,209 crowd at Boston Garden. By the harrow margin of a half game, the Bruins managed to retain their first-place lead over the Leafs. It was the eighth deadlock the Bruins have chalked up since they were defeated last in Montreal on December 21. To gain it, they had to'come from behind, to the delight of their largest home crowd of the season. Jackson opened the scoring dur ing the 12th minute of play, with Herb Cain and Terry Reardon as sisting, and supplied the equalize: about halfway through the middli frame, after Apps had registered his second tally. Jackson enabled the Bruins to keep building up their record bj poke-checking the puck away from Bingo Kampman deep in Toronto territory and beating Goalie Turk Broda without assistance. App's first counter, at 14:40 in the first period, was on the flukey side. The Bruins were attacking in full force when Woody Dumart attempted to launch a power play by batting the puck agahist the sideboards. The puck took a high bound and landed in center ice. Apps was closest to it and he was unchallenged as he bore down against Frank Brimsek, the Boston goalie. Syl's second, however, was masterpiece, for he set himself u] in perfect scoring position to take Gordie Drillon's well-timed pas through the Boston defense.

Coach Henry Iba, plowed,: with his team's 30-26. victory over the Big Six conference : leaders from Kansas last night, " let down his hair today. "• "Of course, we point for the: eams we think will be tough," Iba" aid, "building"our defense to offset he strongest points of. their afferi^. ive. . ••-, He might have added that hfife, own uncanny ability to out-figure^ he enemy and map the proper de-^ "ensive strategy for each game >lays a most important part In tis team's success. But he let It come from the record books. ; Two weeks ago, the Aggies, stopped Oklahoma, heading the Sooners into a losing streak..*, that has reached five straight defeats, including another by- •-• the Cowboys. Oklahoma made only one field;: ;oal in the frist half of the first, tame with the Aggies and only; hree in the second half. The .Ag- gies permitted the Sooners seven in: he second game. Kansas, which replaced Oklarr loma at the top spot in the Big- Six, could manage only six field; goals against the Aggies last night., Howard Engleman, Jayhawk ace- who has averaged better than 20 joints per game and has all but: jroken the Big Six scoring record;, had exactly three free throws to show'for his evening's efforts. Iba's explanation made It look simple, although apparently nobody else has thought about it. "The way to stop Engleman is to stop Bob Allen, who does most of the feeding on the Kansas club." Iba confided. "We put Bud Milli<an, one of four best guards, on Allen and he didn't let him feed" the ball to Engleman. Without the> sail, Engleman couldn't shoot." •' Iba attributed his team's letdown in the Missouri Valley Con* ference, during which the defending^ champs were urjset twice in a row^ 1 :o a period of reorganization. L. J. Eggleston, ace forward-who led the Aggie scoring in a • =• successful Eastern tour early in the season, was hurt In prac- " tice and lost for the year. • :.'• "With. Egglenon in the game, we have -been using a fast break and not trying to control the ball as much as in past seasons," Iba said? "But when we lost him, we had to change our offensive."
