r PAGE FOUR THE 10C& RE6ISTEB, SATUBD. Mustangs Defeat Tigers Win Close Game With Ft. Scott By Score of 27 to 20; Victory Is Tola's Third Straight The lola high school basketball team won its third straight victory last night, . defeating Ft. Scott 27 to 20. So far the Mustangs have not been defeated on their own court. The lolans took an early lead and rolled up a score of 8 before Fort Soott was able to find the basket. The quarter ended with a score of 8 to 4. , In the second quarter, however, the visitors broke through Tola's de- to tie the score and take a three point lead before being stopped. A basket by Leavitt and a free throw by Lind tied the count at IJ all just before the first hi\U ended. During the third quarter first one team and then the other held a slim margin with lola leading 19 to 17 when the whistle blew. In the fourth, however, the Mustangs hit their .ntrlde and never were In danger. Speeht Bigh Man Henry Specht cashed In on 6 out of 7 charity tosses and tos.sed three field goals for a total of 12 points, the highest Individual .score of the evening. So far this year the Mustangs i have won six games and lost throe' and have averaged 28.6 pointu per game to 25.6 for their opponents. A large and enthusia.stlc crowd attended last night's game and not only saw two corking good basketball games but heard some stirring mualc played by the lola high .school band.

INC'T. + + + The WAR TODAY + + + iCE-CAPADES" with Ellen Drew and Richard Denning Ends Today—^'JOHNNY DOUGHBOY" and "LAND OF THE OUTLAWS" (By DEWITT MACKENZIE.) All Allied peoples have taken to measuring progress against the Germans in terms of the distance our armies are from Berlin—an im- derstandable calculation although not very .sound militarily, because it isn't the mileage that counts but the obstacles between you and your goal. Anyway, that's the way we figure it, and we now are near enough to Wilhelmstrasse so that thoughts of enemy capitulation naturally are in our minds—though here again we have a somewhat 'faulty premise, since the capture of Berlin wouldn't necessarily end the war. However, brushing aside technicalities, what may we expect to find inside Germany when the enemy finally says he's had enough? A glance behind the curtain Is rather appalling, for a bloody coup de grace which the Allies now are in process of administering is merely a gatecrasher into an administrative problem which has no parallel In history. We start with the circumstance that the Rich, which has been one of the world's greatest powers, will liave no government to -which the United Nations can assign the task of administering (under Allied military control) the highly complicated affairs of some 80,000,000 people. Since one of our chief aims is the utter destruction of the Nazi regime, we are hardly likely to entrust affairs to its officials. Anyway, power Is concentrated in the hands of Hitler (If he sUU lives) and his captains, and all these criminals presumably win be under lock and key. This presents a situation unique In our time. When the Allies defeated Germany in the last war, there was a government ready to administer the affairs of t|ie country. Naturally another government will follow the Hitler regime In due course. But the early days oX the Alli^ occupation are likely to be hellish. The Allied military authorities will?have to look after millions of civilians whose homes have been desti'oyed, who lack the necessities of life and who have no immediate pro8{)ect of employment. The countless thousands of surrendering German; soldiers, many of whom are brutalized Nazi fanatics, may have to be put In internment camps for fear that If they are. turned loose they; win start ravaging the country. : Troops who.'ve been used to massacring civilians and prisoners of war -won't hesitate at anything. The housing problem will be titanic, especially in view of the lack of building materials and labor. The food situation will be acute, as will that Pf all other supplies. The Allied countries must come first for general :rehabiIitation. The Germans will have to be fed and clothed and housed, but they'll have to wait until the last for .everything beyond bare necessities. Then the Allies will have the job of ref)atriating the marty millions of Allied nationals whom Hitler im- porteid into the Reich for slavery. There also are large numbers of prisoners of war interned in the relch! So^one couid go on piling up the grief: until there was a Ust as long as your arm. The sum total is that the Allied military government will haveta mountain to move, and that will t,ake not only faith but mighty hard.and expert work. So far as one can see now, there will have to be Allied military governments in every' sizeable town of Germany, and they'll have to be responsible for everything, pending the estab- lishmjent of a brand new German reginp. Oma Outpoints Baksi In ten-Round Bout Itithe WORLD of SPORTS BY HUGH PULLERTON JR. New York, Jan. 27. (AP)—It was the aftermath of World War I that turned-the Ynn|cees into baseball's greatest club. , . -. And it looks as if World War II win bring just as big a change. . . .Babe Ruth and Ed Barrow"' came to New York In 1920 and it was on them that the Yanks' greatness was founded—with the aid of, of the sports boom that took place in the twenties. . . . This war has brought Larry MacPhail, noted as a basebaU' showman, into the conservative Yankee picture while Barrow h^ been retired to the role of chairman of the board of directors. .. . Laughing Larry has miide it clear that he intends to be the boss and that seems to indicate some startling innovations. . . . It -was MaePhaU. you remember, who introduced night basebaU to the majors arid Barrow who swore there never would be lights in Yankee Stadium. Kev! York, Jan. 27. (AP)—Lee Oma, boxing's latest version of the Cinderella rags - to - riches theme, scored the biggest victory of his checkered career by decisively out- pointlhg burly Joe Baksi last night at Mftdlson Square Garden. Enriched by approximately $50,000 in hi^ last three fights the Detroit heavyweight, who less than a year ago f9ught for coffee and cake money, gave away 25'^ pounds but outsped, outboxed and outpunched his 211-pound opponent to gain a unaniiSious 10-round decision. FRESH START Now >that the deal, rumored for several years, finally has been made, sports.writers can turn their hands to speculating as to the probable effect on pro footbaU. . . . Dan Toppinfe's National league club Is out of Brooklyn—In fact. General Manager Tom Gallery reveals that he knew it was coming when he cliangeti- the team's name to "Tigers'^ last ffll. . . . Whether Dan will be able to move into Yankee Stadium is problematical, because the grid Giaijts could block that move, if they wished. . . . One report says the Dodger-Tigers already have,be<!n "propositioned" by promoters of oiie of the new leagues. In these days of mechanism, army divisions require about 3,000 vehicles, including guns, tangs, tractors and trucks. . Dr. Wajne E.

Coal Shortage Threatens All Indoor Sports Chicago, Jan. 27. (AP)—Sponsors and promoters of indoor sports —amateur, professional and collegiate—joined the moguls of baseball and professional football at the walling wall today as a new wartime restriction threatened curtailment of their endeavors. A solid fuels administration edict from Washington yesterday urged curtaUment of indoor athletic events as a means of conserving fuel so that a jam of freight ship- menUs could be more rapidly handr led by eliminating coal traffic that could be termed unnecessary.

Bud, as you probably know, is a newcomer to KMBC— a member of the "Prairie Pioneers' now heard during the Dinner Bell Roundup Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Although only 18 years old (and single, girls.) Bud ha.s been on the radio nigh onto ten years. Back when he was 11, Bud teamed up with another youngster, and they were heard over radio .stations in the East under the namt. Sunshine Brothers.

There's never a dull moment. Millie and Sue lately have come in for some good natured ribbing about a little incident that we'll leave up to you as to whether or not it is true. The story goes this way. Some of the other KMBC talept went out- on one of their many personal appearances and took along sound equipment just previously used by the two girls. When the equipment was turned on, however, the buzzing and crackling made use of it Impossible. On the way back to Kansas City, they took the microphone apart and what do you suppose they found?
