A.L to Call A's Finley On Carpet BOSTON (AP) — The American League calls Charles 0. Finley recalcitrant owner of the Kansas City Athletics, on the carpet Friday. The question that the league wants answered is: Why hasn't Finley signed a lease with Kansas City so the A's will have a place to play. The baseball season opens in less than two months. Spring training stalls next week. AL President Joe Cronin called the meeting after an extension of the deadline for lease-signing expired Saturday night. Finley wanted to move his club from Kansas City, but was turned down by the other owners in his bid to shift his franchise to Louisville, Ky. The vote was 9-1. Three Contests Open Action in Sublette Meet FAN FARE HARVSV SEEN V/OS.KINS ' 50 HAW-t SEE SPOTS MY Wall Difeen SUBLETTE — Three games were played here Wednesday night as the 12th annual basketball tournament of the Santa Fe Grade School League got underway. A turnout of at least 200 fans was on hand at the junior high gym. The tourney is being run in seventh and eighth-grade divisions, with five teams in each bracket. Three more games are on tap tonight. The tourney skips Friday and winds up Saturday night with a final round of four games. Two of Wednesday's games were in the seventh-grade division.

(AP) - Thirty nine major leaguers are in the field of 155 golfers teeing off today in the 72-hole 24th annual National Baseball Players Golf Tournament. Defending champion Jim Hearn, former Giant pitcher, faces stiff opposition from Alviu Dark, San Francisco manager, seeking his fifth title, and 1958 winner Albie Pearson of the Los Angeles Angels. Finley insisted he would sign a Municipal Stadium lease in Kansas City for two years only. City officials held out for a four- year lease. Many meetings and much discussion by both sides and by attorneys failed to settle the difference. The American League threat met to take Finley's franchise away from him if he didn't sign a lease. Finley replied the league has no power to take his franchise and threatened to sue. Among those expected to be at Friday's meeting are Mayor llus Davif and City Counsel Herbert Holfman of Kansas City. "The Uagu* would have to have a good reason to take 'my franchise away," Finley said this week. "And it hasn't any reason at all. "You can definitely say that the Athletics will start the season under the ownership of Fin- lev." When Cronin announced the meeting, he said a further meet- ?ng "to consider the termination of membership in the league of Charles 0. Finley and Co. Inc." also might be called. The U.S. Senate stepped into the argument this week. Sen. Stuart Symington, D-Mo., said Finley was "working against the best interests of the franchise In Kansas City and lowering 'the respect of the American people for professional baseball." FlnUy Mid Symington wag playing politics. A Senate subcommittee agreed to wait until after Friday's meeting before deciding whether to invite Finley to testify before its anti-trust and monopoly hearings. Cronin denied Finley's request that the other owners hear his plea to move the club to Oakland, Calif., but Finley said he will bring it up Friday anyway. Finley denied a report the Kansas City club might be for sale, "The ball club never has been for sale," he said. "I wouldn't sell it for $10 million." Cimoli Sign* Poet KANSAS CITY (AP) — Outfielder Gino Cimoli, who batted .263 in 154 games last year, has signed his 1964 contract, the Kansas City Athletics, announced Wednesday. Buffs to Face Lamed Friday Night in Crucial WCKL Tilt Another crucial encounter is set for Garden City High basket- bailers Friday night as they travel to Lamed for a West Central Kansas League cage contest which will play a major role in deciding the conference title. Garden is still deep in the running for the circuit championship, hut must capture both of their final games — with Larned and Great Bend — to stake out a tie for the loop crown. A loss in either outing would eliminate the Buffs from contention. Friday's homestanders have * * * much to gain from the contest, too. They are in a position to finish as high as a tie for second in the conference and will be gunning to boost their record as high as possible. A Garden City victory would set the Buffaloes' meeting with Great Bend here on Feb. 28 as a game to decide the league crown. Larned is 6-5 in WCKL play and 11-5 over-all. The Indians have defeated all five of their non-league foes. Losses have been administered by Hays twice (77-66 and 48-44 in overtime), * * if Three Teams in Loop Cage Race Three teams are still in the running for the West Central Kansas League' basketball title as the loop race enters its final two weeks of action. Great Bend, Garden City, and Russell are in the thick of the tightest conference sparring in recent seasons. Only two squads have been mathematically eliminated from competition with just two dates remaining on the WCKL calendar. A varying combination of occurances could scramble the other five clubs in a number of ways. Coach Jim Nebergall's Great Bend five is in the driver's seat with a 7-3 mark in circuit action, and can clinch at least a draw for the championship Friday night against the luckless Pratt Greenbacks. Pratt's cellar-dwellers have yet to chalk up a success in 10 conference tries. Tho showdown would then come at Garden City on Feb. 28, when the Panthers would have to beat the Buffaloes in the latter's homecoming game to insure an undisputed spot in the league throne room. Garden, 6-4 on the year, must get by rugged Larned Friday, or the Great Bend encounter will mean little to them as far as standings are concerned. Russell, 7-4 could sneak through the back door into a conference tie if Garden wins both of its remaining games, and the Broncos can defeat afch-rival Hays Friday night. That would throw the championship into a three-way tie with the top trio sharing 8-4 marks. Russell, oddly, has been beaten twice by Garden City and once by Great Bend. Larned and Hoys, both 6-5, hold outside chances at the first place spot on a tie, but both could be scratched from the challenger list if Great Bend follows the form chart in downing Pratt Yet x>th can play a major role in the itle chase in their contests with Garden City and Russell, respec- ively. Dodge City was eliminated for ontention last week with a 61-56 efeat at the hands of Russell, 'he Demons are 5-6 in league ilay with only Pratt remaining in their schedule on Feb. 28. The always rugged WCKL has gain scored well against outside oes. Member schools have posted a nine-game, 22-13 edge over ion-league foes. Close Race in Basketball Poll Jackson, Chiefs Picked for Meet OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Eddy Jackson, the tallest member of the tallest college basketball team in -the country, is almost as diversified as he ii long. The 7-foot center for Oklahoma City University, a lean 220-pounder with a quick wit and a ready smile, is or has been all these things, in no set order: The first 7-footer to play at OCU. The first Negro to play at OCU. One of Uie most successful soft drink salesmen in Oklahoma. A 6-8 high school football quarterback who impressed some college grid coaches. OCU, with a line-up that averages from 6-foot-5 to a fraction under 6-7Vi, depending on which five players get the starting call, was named Wednesday as the 10th at-large team for the NCAA Tournament. The lanky Jackson is one of the big reasons. He is the team's second leading scorer with a 14-point average and is the top rebounder. And on a team which abounds with professional prospects, he is the only one to actually receive a feeler from a National Basketball Association team at this early date. Ottawa, Sterling Face Vital Tilts This Week iy THI ASSOCIATED PRISS Ottawa's victory Wednesday night and Sterling's loss the night before combine to make Saturday's game important to those two Kansas Conference basketball, teams. With records of 10-6 they are tied for second place with two games left. Bethany has won the championship and brought its record to 15-1 Wednesday by beating McPherson 101-91. Ottawa beat Southwestern 7661 WediK-iday and will be host to College of Emporia. Sterling must play Bethany. There were three non-conference games Wednesday. Emporia State upset Rockhurst 67-61 In overtime; Rolla defeated Priuclpia 94-86 and Peru. Neb., beat Tarkio 103-68. Tony Verdi and Duahe Bissett led Ottawa wttb 90 potot* each. Ottawa had little trouble with Southwestern, leading 44-31 at the half. Behauy hit 61 per cent of its field ' goal tries and its top scorers were John Darrow with 27 points, Robert Ahlsted with 25 and Harvey Daniels with 24. Marion Eoke led McPherson with 25. The score was 58-aU when the regulation game ended at Emporia. Dick Hennier ted Rockhurst with 20 • ponts and Bob Goldsmith led Emporia State with 18. Bob Hale led Rolla with 30 points and teammate Ralph Farber had 19. Ron Nolle of Principia was high with 29 points. Emporia State, with a 4-2 record, could make the Central Conference race interesting Saturday with a victory over Washburn. It would throw Emporia State into a first-place tie with Omaha, its final opponent. There are no games tonight.

Evansville polled five first ilaces and 72 points in the bal- oting by a special panel of eight regiohal selectors. Grambling :ollected three votes for first place and 71 points. A week ago, vansville had 72 points and Grambling 68. Pan American remained in hird place followed by Assump- ion, Washington of St. Louis, Hofstra, Kentucky Wesleyan, Youngstown,, Wittenberg and Western Carolina. Evansville defeated DePauw nd St. Joseph's of Indiana last week for an 18-2 record. Grambling is 32-1 following victories over Texas Southern and Arkanas AM&N. Pan American lifted ts mark to 20-4 by beating Steubenville and St. Edwards of Austin, Tex. Assumptiqri,. from Worcester, Mass., climbed from sixth place on the strength of victories over kterrimack and Lemoyne that wosted its record to 14-1.

Garden led virtually all the way in the first meeting of the rivals, but the Indians broke open a hte Buff stall game to win in the final two minutes. The margin here added to a long list of frustrating Garden City failures against Larned. A year ago, the Buffs had moved into a 49-48 lead with a minute to play, but lost 52-49. Coach Dave Craft's Buffs may hold the advantage of momentum in this contest. They have captured five in a row and eight of their last ten. Larned, in con trast, has dropped four of their last five. Major defensive problem for the locals will be big Indian center John Zook. The 6-4 post man has scored consistently this season, and Garden can only hope hat he continues his fouling rate. Zook has fouled out of more ;ames than any other league performer. Teaming with Zook at the forwards will be 6-3 junior Bob Brown and 6-2 senior Bill Greve. xpected to start at the guard spots are 5-10 senior Mike Clutter and 5-11 aenior Bruce Patterson. Gardtn'i late win streak has upped its season mark to 11-6, best ever since Coach Craft took over the coaching reins here four years ago. Craft will stick with the same starting group that has performed so well for him in recent outings, though 6-5 Bill King will be available for duty in case Zook has ah unusually potent evening. Opening in the center position s 6-2 senior Mike Collins. On the brwards should be 6-1 juniors Tony Gooden and Steve Salter, with 6-1 senior Emil Krug and 5- junior Melvin Rupp at the guards.

The Warriors have moved further ahead of their two Western Division challengers the past two nights, thanks to the National Basketball Association's cellar teams—New York and Detroit. San Francisco now leads second-place St. Louis by two games and third-place Los Angeles by 5V4 games. The Warriors stopped Cincinnati's 12-game winning streak 108-101 Wednesday night while last-place New York of the Eastern Division outscored Louis 120-114 and last-place troit of the West edged Los gcles 116-115. New York sneaked by Angeles Tuesday night 118-117. In the other NBA game Wednesday night Philadelphia whipped Baltimore 130-122. Thayne Smith THE KANSAS The question is why? Dick Eggen, Pratt, chief of the field services division of the Forestry, Fish and Game Commission, displayed a large parking sign. It had once been an ordinary sign, mounted on a steel fence post. • Not any more! The sign, taken from Geary County State Lake property south of Junction City, had been twisted and broken. There were two complete twists in the post. "This is one of many found in this condition." Egken said. "All we can find have been ruined. Three are many others missing, and they're probably in the bottom of the lake." This It on* of many in a long list of "vandalism" raids at Fish and Carrie Commission facilities this winter. At Osage County State Lake, south of Topeka, picnic tables were tossed in the lake and trash barrels destroyed. Material for a new building at the Shawnee-Jackson Lake, near Holton, disappeared as fast as workmen could haul it to the scene. A night watchman had to be hired by the contractor to keep the material from being carried off. More than 60 signs, painted on mental and mounted on steel posts reading "Public Hunting Area", disappeared or were destroyed beyond repair on the Fish and Game management area around Fall River Reservoir. They cost $1.60 each, not including assembly labor. Sporttmtn certainly do not condone such destruction. About all they can do, however, is to report anyone they might see damaging or destroying public property. Why does anyone willfully commit shch an act? Only those who do it know. It's apparent, however, that their minds are twisted like those sign posts. * * * Fisherman and sportsmen throughout Kansas might be wise to follow the lead of a group of men in Lane County, my home county. The men recently purchased more than 5,000 bass and channel cat from a Kingman hatchery, measuring from five to seven inches, and stocked them in 14 ponds in the county.
