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 fieorge (Dutch) Hoy's boys started out well, flashing a smooth floor game to work in for close shots with Floyd \Veed, 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.

Ross' alleged opponent was Elbert Coole, a 145-pound youth who mustered up enough courage to crawl into the ring, but who decided discretion has more merit than valor when the former state lightweight king advanced upon him. Agile Ellis moved toward his crestfallen rival at the sound of the bell, but Coole refused to leave his corner, despite tho urgings of a squad of handlers. Ross sparred with him. a moment and then hacked away, puzzled by the other's display of pacifism. Referee Ray Howrll, upon inquiry, found that Coole wasn't mad at anybody and awarded Ross a technical knockout. Coole was a substitute for Allen Canlor, who canceled his match with Ross after contemplating the cowboy's fearsome reputation. There was plenty of action in the rest of the card, however, and a brace of simon-pure belters wil awake this morning just a bit the worse for wear. And they'll fee the extra twinge that accompanies vast damage to ring prestige. The two luckless pugilists are Benny Guerra of Tempe and Tec Dennis of Phoenix, who lost by technical knockouts. The Tempe fighter was jarred loose from his state lightweight diadem by Percy Moore's whirlwind attack, losing by a technical knockout late in the third round after a whooping left cut his right eye, Dennis, after holding a heavy edge for two rounds, found T.

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. Weed, who was the only Bruin who could hit, scored 19 points.

But he weathered the attack and lashed out several times, one of his thrusts ripping Guerra's eye and ending the fight. Moore weighed 135, Guerra two pounds less. Connor surprised everybody, Dennis in particular, by coming from far behind in the third heat and banging the colored youth between the eyes so hard and often with a large right hand that the heretofore formidable Dennis ceased opposition.

Red Raiders Capture Cage League Laurels The Red Raiders defeated the Sharks, 25 to 18, in a play-off for the class A second-third title in Verde Park Basketball League play last night. In other scheduled games, the Sinkers defeated University Park. 48 to 12, and Grand forfeited t" Garfield. Three class A games are slated tonight. The Sharks and Capitol will play at 7 o'clock, South Phoenix and the Red Raiders will tangle at 8 and the Chinese Lions and the Exiles will meet an hour later. While Phoenix did no better than finish third in the West Central Conference while the Jackrabbits won the title in the East Central, the Coyotes have a consistent season-long record of always doing the unexpected. However, it would take a big reversal of form for them to defeat the Rabbits, who trounced them, 42-19, at Mesa. The Coyotes yesterday spent considerable time in working against a man-for-man defense, although they expect Coach Steve Coutchie to spring a tight zone. Tuckey wound up by working on his new plan to crack a zone defense, stressing rebound work—a department in which the Coyotes have been lax. Ray Riveras, forward who leads tho fast break, again took the day off because of dental troubles, but expects to be in shape by tomorrow. Bob Patton, guard, is slowly recovering from a bout with bronchitis, but will be of no use before the state tournament, while Homer Gillespie's injured knee will keep him out for the remainder of the year. As a result, Tuckey finds himself short on reserves. George Sohek is a key man in the fast floor attack which makes Notre Dame one of the Midwest's strongest teams. A forward, he led scoring as Irish defeated New York University for 10th successive victory. Cagers Open Meet Today r\OUGLAS, Feb. 19—(AP)—Play •^ in the annual Southern Arizona, district basketball tourney wfll start here tomorrow, with four games scheduled. Games are: 4 p. m.—Tucson vs. Willcox; p. m.—Nogales \s. Bisbee: 7:30 p. m.—Benson vs. St. David; 8:30 3. m.—Tombstone vs. Douglas. ?onr games are scheduled Friday and Saturday, with the championship contest Saturriay night. The undefeated Benson quintet, one of three such teams in the state during regular season play, is favored. Tucson, always a dangerous five, is again in that position. The $110,000 Douglas High School Gym, where the tourney was first held in 1939, will again be the scene of action. This year only eight teams will take part, officials contending that in 1939 and 1940 some clubs had to play five games in three days. Forty-seven trophies have been donated by the Douglas Chamber of Commerce for winning fives and outstanding players. MESA CAGERS REST MESA, Feb. 19—The Mesa High School Jackrabbits enjoyed an easy time of it today as Coach Steve Coutchie ordered a rest for them in preparation for their clash with the Phoenix -Coyotes In Phoenix Friday night. Coach Coutchie has had his cagers bearing down in shooting drills, as the Rabbits have slipped in their sharpshooting. In the final game of the East Central Conference tourney, the Rabbits made only 10 field goals against the Ray five—a 20 per cent mark. They clicked on 50 per cent of their tries against North Phoenix and 38 per cent of their shots against the Coyotes in the game here. Coach Coutchie also has ordered a light day for the Mesa cagers Thursday as a strenuous week of competition in the tourney has left them logy. The Mesa mentor has been devoting time to the reserve group, and although the reserves do not have the speed or height they are more aggressive than the varsity. Neilson, Cummard and Tanner are the spark plugs of the group. o Bomber - Godoy Rematch Fades SANTIAGO, Chile, Feb. 19— (AP) — Arturo Godoy, Chilean heavyweight, apparently has given up the idea of going to the United States to meet Champion Joe Louis in April for the third time. Godoy said today he planned to leave tomorrow for Buenos Aires to make a Spanish-language picture and would return to Chile before going to the U. S. He said he hoped to get a bout with Louis in August, Promoter Mike Jacobs had given Godoy until March 10 to appear in this country or forfeit his April 21 bout with Louis. Matchmaker Nat Rogers said today Jacobs was negotiating with Bob Pastor as an opponent for Louis since he Jiad heard nothing from Godoy since the fight was arranged with the Chilean's manager, AI Weill, a couple of months ago. o- series paced Club to a three-point win over Purolai. 2.224-2,150.

Cub Holdout Tells Story N EW ORLEANS, La., Feb. 19— (AP)—Bill Lee, who pitchei 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 con tract and added "it doesn't look much like I will." "They even write me that they would not give me as good a con tract as they offered if I did no report on time," Lee said, "but still feel that I am worth all tha 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 Piaquemine, La., where he vows he'll do his spring training. Lee said he was sorry the Cubs had sold Zeke 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 hi letter a story he wrote himself "an article I thought you migh 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 ha: become so interested in the fieli 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 tho club and give him 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 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.

Bonus Check Row Won By Ousted Pilo fHICAGO, Feb. 19—(AP)—If, a ^ they say, money talks, Osca Vitt had the last word today in h row with the Cleveland ball club— by proxy. The last word, exactly S2.5C worth, was delivered in behalf Or 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 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 $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 vi cationing. A check for $2,500 wa received from the Cleveland clu a few days ago and forwarded i Vitt, O'Connor said. At Clevelan Alva Bradley, president of the In dians said: "Landis said we owe the bill and we paid it." Vitt, whose job as Cleveland manager went to Roger Peckinpaugh, had a contract calling 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 600,00 and another for 700,000."
