But twice daily the Lexington •venue hunters, trappers and fish- men desert the snakes and hoot «ls Indians and Eskimos, and the ttnic exhibits to crowd around the .5 tank to catch the Runyan act. It is a good act, with Paul demon- ijating proper use of all clubs from Siver to blaster and topping it off nth an array of trick shots. It i the first time Promoters Campbll and Fairbanks have embraced nlf in their annual wild life expo- tsion but from now on it is likely it be a fixed feature. Runyan, who quit the winter tournament circuit in California, to stage the golf act, will not go on with the show from here, but will rejoin the touring professionals in Florida next week. He hopes that the dally workouts during his act have improved his form over his showing in the West. Paul Runyan probably is the best end that the golf duffer has. Beta slight in stature, without the alky forearm muscle and wrist lower of most leading professionals, Junyan has had to build his game iround body action, a full swing tnd extreme accuracy. He believes tat his case represents the one of ;« average week-end golfer who Joes not have terrific muscular |0«-er. >> All of his instruction methods are Minted toward the average golfer, rtich he says is one who scores iround 100 for 18 holes.

"Despite what some of my colleagues think, it will cut more strokes of the average tollers' score than it will the Mperts. For Instance say that the pro and the dub both hare taken the same number of shots and lie in a trap on the edge of the green. More often than not, the pro will blast out and rtop his ball close enough to the pin to get down in one nutt. Meantime, the dub 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 horn on the average card.

LOUIS. Feb. 18—(INS)— utfielders Ernie Koy, Hairy 'alkrr and John Wyrostek have gncd their 1941 contracts, the St. .ouis Cardinals announced today. he club now has 23 players un- er contract. Among those agreeing to terms esterday were Gus Mancuso, vet- ran catcher obtained from Brookin the deal which sent Catch- r Mickey Owen to the Dodgers, and Estel Crabtree and Coaker riplett, outfielders. Meanwhile. Johnny Mize, hard- itting Cardinal first baseman, re- was reported now at Hot . ._ returned unified a second contract offered um by the club. Branch Rickey, vice-president of w Cardinals, said he understood !ize would be in St. Louis Satur>,v. Rickey said he did not know wether Mize planned to confer fith Cardinal officials regarding salary terms. Several weeks ago tee and club officials held a con- erence. hut failed to agree on contract terms. T7LLIS ROSS, the lean cowhand, •" is riding the red-leather range, again and the state's former amateur lightweight champion aims to lasso all the welter victories in sight- Agile Ellis cleaned out Arizona's stock of lightweights in a methodical 1940 campaign and appeared .headed for the Diamond Belt laurels in San Francisco. But he picked up eight stray onces somewhere between the semifinals and weighing-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 h'as 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 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 lis offensive talents with the abil- ty 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 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 .

They hope to mar the great record f the Tempe frosh tonight by anding-them their first defeat of le 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 orward, shifted to center, and ohnny Howard stepping in at for- vard. The combination clicked in the Saturday game at Tucson when he Bruins come back to trounce he Wildkittens after losing Fri- ay's contest Hoy is confident his lub will not be weakened by the absence of the two veterans especially against a club containing as ew 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 eading the Bruin scoring of late, appear in prime shape.

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 tomorrow 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 lie 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 golfer's—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.

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 scrimmage 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 lonr range game extremely costly. ' Tuckey spent » 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 team 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. :' nee fn the 36-hole finals.

Fifteen players had entered the ourney last night, far below the 6 who competed in qualifying play ast year. However, entries will be ccepted this morning when a num- ier of local golfers are expected o enter the title battle. One of the high lights of today's play will be an exhibition by Mrs. Opal S. Hill of Kansas City, nationally known golf star.

INJURIES HIT FROSH TEMPE, -Feb. 18—Coach Bill Knockout Scored By Georgie Pace TORONTO, Feb. 18—(AP)— Georgie Pace of Cleveland knocked out Spider Armstrong of Toronto in the sixth round of their 10-round bout at Maple Leaf Gardens tonight. Pace lashed out quickly with a succession of smashing body punches to break up what had been a close fight. The knockout came at 2:45 of the sixth round. Pace weighed 124%, Armstrong !7. Pace, former National Boxing Association' bantamweight champion, hurt Armstrong consistently with his body punches. When the 127. Kajik'awa 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 tb.e 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 7 '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. 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 flobr. 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 . .- •• Jimmy Gleeson, traded by, the Cubs to the Reds, batted both right and left handed -last year -to compile a record of .313. sixth round began he slammed one into Armstrong's ribs, and the Canadian went down for an eight- count Armstrong came up and tried to slug .it out, but another flurry of body punches sent him down for a seven-count and a third series floored him for keeps. — ' — ' — ~°~ Lob os Toppled By Aggie Quint ALBUQUERQUE, N.

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, wit Herb Cain and Terry Reardon as sisting, and supplied the equalize about halfway through the middl frame, after Apps had registere his second tally. Jackson enabled the Bruins keep building up their record-b poke-checking the puck away from Bingo Kampman deep in Toront territory "and beating Goalie Tur 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 against 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.
