It was the Bears' third loss of the year to the Bullpups, who are undefeated in their own class and own a victory over the Tempe varsity. Coach George (Dutch) Hoy's boys started out well, flashing a smooth floor game to work in for close shots with Floyd Weed, center, spearheading the attack.. The Bruins rarely missed an open shot and went into a short lead which thev hf-ld for the first 10 minutes of play. The Bullpups were missing their shots, while Paul Campbell, Phoenix guard, was doing a land-office business at pass interception. In the second quarter Kenton Overson, guard, and Moran began to find the range, Moran scoring six baskets the first half and Overson five. The Hoymen found themselves unable to match that pace and slowly lost ground, trailing, 27. to 21, at the intermission. Eugene Norwood and Weed got together to lead a • brief Phoenix rally as the second half opened, but Moran and Overson then took over and rapidly made the game a rout. Their phenomenal accuracy had the Bruins demoralized in the later stages. Overson gave Moran a battle for scoring honors, coming up from guard to bag 20 points.

The compact little high school girl flashed over the 220-yard course in 21.4 at LaCrosse, Wis., equaling the world's record for the division in the women's national intermediate speed skating championships. Despite a series of heartbreaking mishaps in other distances, she piled up enough points to tie for the division title—yet her performance was a disappointment to her coach, Oscar Johnson, Minneapolis professional who described her as "the greatest woman speed skater to be of all time." A teammate's spill put her out of the running in the 440-yard event and a poor start held her to second place in the. half-mile this year. The disappointment of her coach is understandable in view of the fact that while skating in the junior division last year. Miss Naas' time in the 440- and 880-yard races was oetter than that eve'r made in! the division in which she competed 1" is year. ' Wearing a pair of "hand-me- dovn" skates that cost $1.75, she won her first national championship at 13—and, in doing so, set a record that still stands. Brought up with four brothers who allon-ed "the kid" to tag along only so long as she was able to hold up her end in the rough and tumble, Audrey began skating six years ago when her brothers gave her a pair of cast-off skates and 1 took her to a rink. i Because they refused to let her play on their hockey team, she took up skating in earnest. Aided! by unusual natural co-ordination and a tomboy's strenrth and energy, she rapidly became proficient. Her brothers, after watching her in competition, abandoned skating en'.iiely. Her performance in the 1938 national championships brought her to Johnson's attention. Form, timing and rhythm —s peed skating essentials— were polished and perfected under Johnson's tutelage. Audrey's performance in the junior division—ages 14 to 15— led to the establishment of new and startling records. Because his pupil becomes old enough to compete in the senior women's class in 1942. Johnson is planning on the 1942 Olympics. It is a foregone conclusion, he declared, that if the games are held. Miss Naas will compete for the; Luisetti May Steal Show In AAU Basketball Tourney DENVER, Feb. 19—(AP)—Angelo (Hank) Luisetti, slender Italian basketball wizard from California, threatens to turn the national Amateur Athletic Union tournament next month into a one-man sho-v This will be Luisetti's first appearance in cagedom's "World Series" and the way Denver fans have been talking about him, he'll be the biggest gate attraction since the tournament first came here in IJoD. Ignites Irish The national meet, bringing together quintets from high and low !m the basketball world, has pro- jduced some surprising teams in I the past, but it never has had a "glamour boy." I Luisetti has everything to make him "good box office." He was a star at Stanford, scoring 1,596 points for the Cardinals. He made a movie for $7,500, then left Hollywood to work for a San Francisco oil company. Last December the Amateur Athletic Union, at its national convention here, restored his amateur status and that's a henisnn the amateur body rarely extends to an athlete incurring its displeasure. One official said this action "means an extra $2,000 for the tournament." Since then Luisetti, playing for I the San Francisco Olympic Club, ! proved the long lay-off didn't steal | his cunning. He scored 26 points •against his old school and 24 against St. Mary's. The Olympic Club is report- i ed to have refused a $3,500 i guarantee to send the team to i Honolulu because the dates conflicted with the national | meet March 15 to 23. | Luisetti's outfit isn't the only i California team that may break , the grip Missouri Valley AAU teams have held on the "national 'title for 15 years. Several Pacific coast AAU league clubs should be i stout challengers for the championship the Phillips aggregation from Oklahoma will defend. T AS CRUCES, N. M., Feb. 19— •"- 1 (AP)—New Mexico State College regained tonight some of the steam that distinguished Aggie basketball teams of other years and thundered over Arizona State Teachers College at Tempe, 61 to 26, in a Border Conference game. Angie Cuhico and company were really "on" and displayed what their backers called the best Aggie basketball of the current season. Although Tempe grabbed an early 6-0 lead, the New Mexicans quickly rubbed it out and went on to win with ease. The halttime score was 29 to 10. Cunicp, who played only a few minutes in the second half, led the scorers vv i t h 18, followed by Hathorne, his teammate, with 14. Leseuer, McNabb and Jones of Tempe each made seven points.

J. Whltesitt was Cub Holdout Tells Story MEW ORLEANS, La., Feb. 19— •^ (AP)—Bill Lee, who pitched the Chicago Cubs to a pennant in 1938 and then ran into two lean years of mound efforts, said today he had not signed his 1941 contract and added "it doesn't look much like I will." "They even write me that they would not give me as good a contract as they offered if I did not report on time," Lee said, "but I still feel that I am worth all that I am asking so am going to do my training here." Big Bill's stand was made known in a letter to the Associated Press from his home in Plaqurmine, La., where he vows he'll do his spring training. Lee said he was sorry the Culm had sold Ztke Bonura because "he's a pretty good hitter in my book and that is something we have needed a long time." The Cub hurler included in his letter a story he wrote himself, 'an article I thought you might run if you ran out of news." Lee's story follows: "Since Bill Lee's 'Mary Lou Dix' won a first prize at the Yazoo Beagle Club trials Bill has become a real beagle enthusiast. He has become so interested in the field trials that he is planning to go to one held in Dallas on February 27 and 28 and March 1 and 2. "But baseball is his first love and even though he hasn't signed he still feels that the Cubs will eventually realize his worth to the club and give h'm what he is asking for. So he has been working out for the past week or so and is getting in pretty fair shape already. "He is in pretty good shape now but feels that four or five days without a workout would not help him so he is taking along to Dallas his own catcher and trainer, Joe Distefano. Joe has been helping Bill get in shape since his high school days and may not be as good a catcher as Gabby Hartnett or as good a trainer as Andy Lotshaw but he's still pretty good and he says that when he finishes with Bill he will be a cinch to win 20 games or more. "So whenever the Cubs are willing to give him a decent contract or trade him to a club who will, Bill will be in good shape and ready to give a good account of himself."

Bonus Check Row Won By Ousted Pilot pHICAGO, Feb. 19— (AP)— If, as v -' they say, money talks, Oscar Vitt had the last word today in his row with the Cleveland ball club — by proxy. ' The last word, exactly $2,500 worth, was delivered in behalf of Ol' Oz by Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis, who ruled favorably on Vitt's salary claim against the club which dismissed him late last October. Vitt, now manager of Portland in the Pacific Coast League, was paid $15,000 for the 1940 season, a hectic one marked by a rebellion of players against him, differences with the Indian front office and a stretch drive which saw Detroit nose out Cleveland for the American League pennant When Cleveland declined his demand for $3,500 bonus, he took his case to Landis. The commissioner's secretary, Leslie O'Connor said he received the Vitt ruling from Florida, where the commissioner is vacationing. A check for $2,500 was received from the Cleveland club a few days ago and forwarded to Vitt, O'Connor said. At Cleveland, Alva Bradley, president of the Indians said: "Landis said we owed the bill and we paid it." Vitt, whose job as Cleveland manager went to Roger Peck- inpaagh, had a contract calling for a $3,500 bonus for every 100,000 customers above the 600,000 mark. Bradley said they agreed in mid-season that if the figure were between 600,000 and 700,000 Vitt would receive the $2,500 anyhow. Since the attendance was above 700,000, the club paid Vitt one $3,500 bonus hut balked at giving him another one of $3,500. "I wanted to' keep him happy," said Bradley. "I had no intention of giving him a bonus for 600,000 and another for 700,000."
