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 they held 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 Fenton 3verson, guard, and Moran began o find the range, Moran scoring six baskets the first half and Overon 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. Weed, who was the only Bruin who could hit, scored 19 points. seed on the greens, Milt says, and they're not content with keeping the repast to themselves—they've invited their country cousins . . .

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 o: the running in the 440-yard even and a poor start held her to seconc 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 J^aas time in the 440- and 880-yard races was better than that ever made in the division in which she competec tMs year. Wearing a pair of "hand-me- down" 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 allowed "the kid" to tag along only so long as she was able tc lold up her end in the rough and tumble, Audrey began skating six years ago when her brothers gave ler a pair of cast-off skates and :ook her to a rink. Because they refused to let her )lay on their hockey team, she :ook up skating in earnest. Aided iy unusual natural co-ordination and a tomboy's strength and energy, she rapidly became proficient. Her brothers, after watching her in competition, abandoned skating entirely. Her performance In the 19S8 national championships brought her to Johnson's attention. Form, timing and rhythm —speed skating essentials— were polished and perfected under Johnson's tutelage. Audrey's performance in the junior division—ages 11 to IS— led to the establishment of new and startling records. Because, his pupil becomes old enough- to compete in the senior vomen's class in 1942, Johnson is ilanning on the 1942 Olympics. It s a foregone conclusion, he declared, that if the games are held, Hiss' Naas will compete for the United States.

Big Bill's stand was made known in a letter to the Associated Press from his home in Flaquemine, La., where Be vows he'll do his spring train- Ing.

ARIZONA The national meet, bringing together quintets from high and low in the basketball world, has produced some surprising teams in the past, but it never has had a "glamour boy." 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 benlson 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 the San Francisco Olympic Club, proved the lone 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 reported to have refused a $2,800 guarantee to send the team to Honolulu because the dates conflicted with the national meet March 15 to 22. Luisetti's outfit isn't the only 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 stout challengers for the championship the Phillips aggregation from Oklahoma will defend.

Bonus Check Row Won By Ousted Pilo (CHICAGO, Feb. 19— (AP)—If, a *•' they say, money talks, Osca Vitt had the last word today in h row with the Cleveland hall club— by proxy. The last word, exactly $2,5( worth, was delivered in behalf < Ol' Oz by Commissioner Kenesa Mountain Landis, who ruled favo ably on Vitt's salary claim again the club which dismissed him la last October. Vitt, now manager ot Portland in the Pacific Coast League, was paid $15,000 for the 1940 season, a hectic one marked by a rebellion of play- en 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 $2,500 bonus, he took his case to Landis. The commissioner's secretarj Leslie O'Connor said he receive the Vitt ruling from Florid where the commissioner is v cationing. A check for $2,500 wt received from the Cleveland clu a few days ago and forwarded Vitt, O'Connor said. At Clevelan Alva Bradley, president of the In dians said: "Landis said we ow< the bill and we paid it." Vitt, whose job as Cleveland manager went to Roger Peck- inpangh, had a contract call- Ing for a $2,500 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 $2,500 bonus but balked at giving him another one of $2,500. "I wanted to keep him happy said Bradley. "I had no intentio of giving him a bonus for 600,01 and another for 700,000." Mission Quint Edges Avondal (From Late Republic Edition Yesterday Led by Ira O'Neal and his 1 points.
