Ellis Ross, Champions Feature Amateur Boxing Program Tonight ROSS, the lean cowhand, is riding the red-leather range again and the state's former M!- iots from e<1 S e of the tank here the log-rollers and canoe tilt- es take their daily ducking. It is an additional surprise to learn that the "Little Poison" of the links is the hit 0 { s show designed to attract fellows who feel more natural .IthtinR along a gun barrel or trollinc for tarpon than hacking a little white ball all over the countryside. But twice daily the Lexington ivenue hunters, trappers and fish-men desert the snakes and hoot iris Indians and Eskimos, and the •enic exhibits to crowd around the E tank to catch the Runyan act It is a good act, with Paul demon- trating proper use of all clubs from ^ver to blaster and topping it off rith an array of trick shots. It the first time Promoters Camp- .11 and Fairbanks have embraced jlf in their annual wild life expo- sion, but from now on it is likely i he a fixed feature. Runyan, who quit the winter tournament circuit in California, to stage the golf act, will not K" on with the show from here, but will rejoin the tnurinc professionals in Florida next week. He hopes that the daily workouts during his act have improved his form over his showing in the West. Paul Runyan probably is the best jjfnd that the golf duffer has. Be- •f slight in stature, without the •alky forearm muscle and wrist jra-er of most leading professionals, innyan has had to build his game irou'nd body action, a full swing mi extreme accuracy. He believes tot his case represents the one of average week-end golfer who (DPS not FEMININE GOLFERS OPEN BATTLE FOR CITY * * ght former champion aims to W6lter victories in Agile Ellis cleaned out Arizona's *l° C £ ? f lightweights in a methodical ^1940 campaign and an- peared campaign headed for the and ap Diamond TJ 1 . . , . —""• _T" c A^lcimuiJU Belt 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 but 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 get 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 have 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 tosser and the encounter should be hotter than a four- alarm fire, In another title affray, gaunt Tony Riveras will see what he cpn 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 terrific muscular four minutes. Clickee is reported to be a thudding hitter. He'll have to match his offensive talents with the ability to take a few whooping left- hand bombs—or 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 fend 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 blow's 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 Brunher, 125. All of his instruction methods are dinted toward the average golfer, rtiich he says is one who scores round 100 for 18 holes. Last year • perfected a paddle-handled put- i which he believes is the duffer's nsvver to better work on the r ;. He scld 700 of them last !«ar and expects to sell at least '.000 this year. "My latest campaign for the aver- .p player is to eliminate sand traps from golf courses," he said. 1 believe that golf courses of the tare will have very few traps nd will depend more upon natural topes and contours for hazards. "Despite what some of my colleagues think, it -will cut more strokes of the average jolfrrs' score than it will the reperts. For Instance say that j the pro and the dub both have taken the Kame number of shots ind lie in a trap on the edge ot the green. More often than not, the pro will Mast out and stop his hall close enough to the pin to cot down in one putt. Meantime, the dub blasts and either goes over the green ta the trap on the other side or buries his hall a couple of inches in the sand. That's where most of those 8's and 9's re horn on the average card. "On the kind of course I envision, pro still would have the ad- Mtage because from the same spot the fairway he could chip more urately and have a belter chance can his first putt. But, the duf- , not frightened by having to ome out of a trap, could play an isy rolling shot to the green—and en, if he had one of my paddle- p putters, well—" We sell no advertising.) o emitinal Goli Matches Slated From Late Republic Edition Yesterday) Feminine golfers will clash in mifinal-round matches in the ebruary handicap golf tourney the' Phoenix Country Club iks, with an accuracy tourney as e special event.

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 polish- ng yesterday, and will wind up drills today. And yesterday's practice firing hiked the stock of a handful of golfers 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— ie'11 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 irt a 74 yesterday and has his sights set on lowering that figure when the formal firing begins. Dr. E. Pavne 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.

DefendingChamp Favored To Keep Tourney Laurels 'HE fourth annual Phoenix city •*• Women's golf tournament will et under way at 9:30 o'clock this lorning over the Eencanto Park ourse, and when the sun goes 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 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. About 125 linksmen are expectec to enter the meet. with 764-865-843 — 2.472. Finnlca! was high with 211-186-197-594. for the while Dunham had 549 for the losers.

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 roug IKJURIES 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 s hand two weeks ago," Kaji- kaw'a 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 report- £u> 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 basketba] 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 Kajikawa's yearlings are practically "in" as champions of the Arizona junior college-frosh basketball league. They have« only 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.

And fo the first 13,. minutes, Zaharia turned in a clean, scientific per formance, matching O'Mahone hold for hold. Then it happened.

Coach Vernon Tuckey gave them a rest Monday to recover from the hard work of last week's district tonrnament and did not call ' for any scrimmage work yesterday although he expects to send them through a hard workout today. Yesterday's drill was devoted hiefly to solving the problem of enetrating the tight zone defense he Jackrabbits set against the Coyotes in Mesa when they stop- ed the Tuckey club, 44-19, and allowed them hardly as many shots n four quarters as they normally et in one. It may be possible that Tuckey jvill vary his usual short-pass, short-shot game Friday night by ising occasional long shots to draw ut the Rabbit defense. Tuckey's ifficulty. is that the tall Jack- abbit guards should take all de- ensive rebounds, permitting 'hoenix only one shot at a time nd making an inaccurate long- ange 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 as much as the entire Coyote tram when the clubs met at Mesa. The Mesa club is built around Crum, who can do everything, a >rep eager can be expected to do. f the Coyotes can stop him they may upset the East Central chani- >ions as effectively as they did a 'avored Tucson club when it in- •aded Phoenix a month ago.

He might-have -added that hi«- ; own uncanny ability to out-figurK the enemy and map the proper dei§ fensive strategy for each game plays a most important part in his team's success. But he corsa from the record books. Two weeks ago, the Aggie*, stopped Oklahoma, heading the '*• Sooner* into a losing streak ^. that has reached five stxciglit '* defeats, including: another by... the Cowboys. Oklahoma made only one field; goal in the frist half of the first game with the Aggies and only three in the second half. The Ag- : gies permitted the Sooners seven in the second game. Kansas, which replaced Okla-. hpma at the top spot in the Biff Six, could manage only- six field goals against the Aggies last nights Howard Engleman, Jayhawk ace: who has averaged better than 2Q points per game and has all bttt. broken 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.
