It is doubtful, too. that either thft. appointment of a "czar" or pulling out of the big city arenas will solve the gambling problem for the colleges ...

Burger's Beachcombers have won 32 games and lost 4 so far this season and have played all the best teams on the Pacific coast. In a recent letter Burger wrote: "It seems nice to be coach of an outfit that beats the country's best. However, when I read in The Register about the lola high school teams I wish were back there. I'd rather coach those kids than coach one of the country's best teams as I am doing now." Coach Burger Is In the navy with rating of Sp. A3 c. THE lOLA REGISTER, WEDNESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 31. 1945.
