FOCHT Telegraph Sport* Editor The Pioneers of Shurtleff College will try their luck on the cagt court (or the first time since Dec. 20 when they travel to St. Louis Saturday night for an encounter with Concordia. The game will start at 8:30 p. m. Coach Merle Pearce's proteges will be out to better a record that now stands at five wins and three losses. The victories were gained at the expense of Harris Teachers' College, Scott Field, Oakland City College, Ind., and Carthage. The Carthage crew has twice fallen victim to the Pioneers, once in a regularly scheduled game and once In the consolation game at the Jacksonville Tournament, the last game the Pioneers have played. Three cage fives have recorded victories over the Shurtleff shooters. The Missouri school of Mines at Rolla eked out a two point margin, 47-45, in the second Shurtleff game of the year, and Illinois Nor mal slopped the Pioneers in their next game by a count of 71-41. The third time the Shurtleff crew proved unable to outscore their opponents was In the first game of the Jacksonville Tournament when the host Illinois College club took them and eventually won the j title.

In th< first eight games, Shurtleff has hi for a total of 498 points, an aver age of 62 per game. But in two of their losses, the Pioneers were able to count for only 45 and 4" points. The Pioneer opponents however, have accumulated a to tal of only 453 points, an average of 56.5 per game, Coach Merle Pearce will take his starting five from among the boys who have seen the most action so far this year. One starlet will be Bob Jones, the big, fast and usually accurate Pioneer who does a lot of scoring, feeding, and rebounding for the Shurtleff quintet. Rob Poe is likely to start, also, as he too has slie and rebounding ability to go with his drive and shooting acumen. Big Johnny among Logan Is expected to be „ those present when the game starts, working the pivot for shots and handoffs and getting more than his share of balls off the boards. The other two Pioneers filling out the starting fiv«t will be comparatively small compared to the aforementioned three. Dutch Miller and George Gaunder will probably hold forth at guards. Miller Is a veteran Pioneer who can lead fast breaks for setups and hit set shots from out as well as worm loose under the bucket Gaunder adds « tight defensive game to his scoring ability, which Is built largely on set shots from out court and running one-hand- ers.

Oilers Battle KahoksTonight Saturday night, regardless of the outcome of tonight's game at Colllnsvllle, the Oilers .will play host to Roodhouse. The game will serve to test the relative strength of the Southwestern Illinois Conference and the Illinois Valley League, of which Roodhouse la a member. Roodhouse could be victim No. 10 should the Oilers get by the Kahoks tonight. Right now they own eight victories and one loss. In the recent Associated Press prep poll, the Oilers were not in the First 15. A win over CoJllnsville and Roodhouse could probably alter the standings somewhat. Weather or no, Collinsville's gymnasium will probably be packed to the smallest splinter tonight when Wood River Invades the land of the Kab/>ks, the proud champions of the Southwestern Illinois Conference. This has been the match every- jody has been anxiously waiting 'or. Both teams are now tied for first place in the conference. Eacli >ossesseg two wins and no setbacks In league competition. Each team owns enviable records. Colllnsvllle claims five vic- Ims and one setback,' while the Oilers have topped eight opponents and come out on the bottom ince. The Kahoks suffered their only efeat at the hands of Mollne, 507. And Mollne had nerve enough o win on the Colllnsville. It can e done. The Oilers were given their first etback by East Rockford'» Rabs, ne of the strongest teams In the ate, regardless of the record. Wood River lost its first game n the East St. Louis holiday tour- ament and Collinsville, which idn't enter into Christmas action ils time, got their "Mickey" in a on-league fracas. 'irates Flood Panama, 31-29 Shipman put on a belated attack to turn an apparent defeat into victory Thursday night as the Pirates squeaked by Panama, 3129, at. Panama, Panama led throughout most of the game. The Pirates lagged at the end of a cold first quarter, 6-1. They warmed up In the second period and trailed by only two points at the half, 14-12. The third period found Panama just barely leading, 25-24. Then in the final quarter, which was a cold one also, Shipman garnered seven points, while Panama had Its poorest quarter of the game. The Panama players gathered only five meager points and walked off the floor, losers by two points. Don.Hudson was high for Shipman with five baskets and a pair of free tosses for 12 points. His teammate, Dwight Taylor, had a couple of buckets and three foul tosses for seven points. For Panama, Moore was to man with ten points, followed b Deright with seven markers.

(/PI—Charlie Grimm, vice-president of the Chicago Cubs planned to confer with club-ownor P. K. Wrigley today before making up his mind on whether to accept a managerial post with the Dallas baseball club of the Texas League. Grimm Is tied to the Cubs by a five year contract at a reported $25,000 annually. The contract still has three years to run. How' ever, R. W. Burnett, owner of the Dallas Eagles of the Texas League, is reported to have offered Grimm a contract during the recent major league meetings in New York which calls for a similar wage on a long-tearm contract. Before leaving his home near Robertsvllle, Mo., yesterday Grimm said he would "talk the matter over with Wrigley today, but that until we go Into the matter, I have no official statement whatsoever to make." Wrigley said he will not stand In Grimm's way, If the Dallas of. fer was to Grimm's advantage. Grimm was supplanted as mann- gar of the Chicago Cubs by Frankie Frlsch In the 1949 season and moved Into the front office as vine-president. Wrigley said he "certainly hoped that Grimm decides to stay in the ortianUaiign. But I can't blame Dick Burnett for wanting Grimm." Grimm was expected to.remain In Chicago only long enough for the parley with Wrigley. The former Cub manager probably will return home immediately because of the serious Illness of his 80- year-old mother.

By HUGH FULLERTON, Jr. NEW YORK, Jan. 6 UP>— Two things which Branch Rickey says he never had done in baseball are permit ball players to live "ofl the base" with their families during spring training and send out contracts until just before the Feb. 1 deadline . . . The first is interesting mostly because of the rhubarbs that developed in some other camps last spring . . . The second because Branch says he seldom has real trouble signing his players and almost never has holdouts . . . "When a player doesn't sign until the last day, that's not a holdout," Branch insists. "That's a fellow playing his last card at the last minute."

Tonight their second attempt is on tap and the battle ground will be the same place. The Shells have had their ups and downs this season. As of now they are one up on the .500 mark, with six victories and five losses to their credit. They've been going strong lately, after getting off to a slow start In their last six games, the Shells have come out on top five times Before they met the Madison Trojans, they had run over Jersey vllle, Troy, Alton, and Jerseyvlll* •gain, in that order. Then they had the displeasure of jumping into Madison for the second time this season: This time the meeting too.k place in the Worden tournament, which was won by Madison After the Trojans, Roxana won over Worden. Besides their losses to Madison, the Shells have been downed by Belleville, Granite City, and Wood River. Fred Foster and Bill King have really been going great guns In the last five games. Foster has accounted for 50 points and. King has plunked in 59 tallies. Another guy that is steadily showing Improvement is Duane Potter, the little lad with the one hand push shot. He's been coming into the Shell spotlight for some notices, also. In the last two games, he has dropped in 21 points. He's come a long way since the beginning of the season. Potter didn't get Into the first, four Roxana games. Yep, a long way. Big Ten Fives In Loop Tilts Saturday Night CHICAGO, Jan. 6. UP)—The Big Ten's 1950 basketball barrage bounces on tomorrow night with eight teams scrapping for laurels in the new season's first big weekend. Wisconsin, which stole a march on the rest of the loop by knocking over defending champion Illinois, 59 to 50, last Monday, runs up against undefeated Indiana (9-0) at Bloomington tomorrow. In the last six games played between the Badgers and the Hoosiers, Wisconsin has won all of them. Indiana's last triumph over the Badgers was a 57-33 decision in 1943. Other Big Ten games tomorrow match Illinois at Ohio State; Northwestern at Purdue, and Iowa at Michigan. In a non-conference test, Minnesota plays host to Marquette. The Gophers have a 7-1 record in non-league play. Ohio State's veteran quintet will be bolstered by the return to the cquad of Dick Schnittker, who donned basketball togs upon his return from the Rose Bowl with the victorious Buckeyes. Illinois had a 7-2 record against non- league foes before running into Wisconsin last Monday. Iowa has won eight and lost one game in tune-up conference competition; Michigan has won 6 and lost three. The Wolverines are paced byCapt. Mack Suprunowicz, veteran forward, who scored 22 points last week as Michigan defeated Nebraska, 67-65 in the Big Seven tournament at Kansas City. Purdue has a 4-4 pre-conference game record, while Northwestern has won six and lost two. In other non-league attractions tomorrow, Loyola of Chicago will invade Madison Square Garden to play City College of New York; BMradley goes to Drake, and Notre Dame, the oldest rival on Michigan State's basketball schedule, will play the Spartans at East Lansing, Mich. It will be the sixty-fourth game in the 'Irish- Michigan State series. Michigan State ran up its highest 'basketball score in 1904 when the Spartans defeated Battle Creek, 93-4. The, lowest game score for a Michigan State basketball team was In 1901 when the Spartans defeated Michigan Normal, 12-7. Michigan ' State's basketball .earns began playing Notre Dame' n 1908, but have only 18 victories o show against 45 defeats. Urt Ccrne/- Wit* The next tournament action for both Alton and Wood River Highs will be the Third Annual Dupo Invitational Tournament, which will come off Jan. 25, 26, 27, and 28. ' The Dupo meet strikes us as one of the best little tourneys around. It started in 1948 as a four-team affair. Then, last^year, It was increased to eight teams. And now, It will be" an eight-team meet with a consolation round. That puts it on a par with the East St. Louis Tourney, as far as construction Is concerned. As for the strength of teams, there could be considerable argument there. Entered in the tourney this year will be Alton, Wood River, Beaumont of St. Louis, Granite City, Freeburg, Chester, the host Dupo, and Anna-Jonesboro, the defending champions. Another good point of the tourney, which starts on a Wednesday and ends on a Saturday, is that all games are played at night on the first, three days, and there are no more than two games in any session. The first game each night is at 7:30 so that the teams can go down to the tournament each day as for a regular game. Anna- Jonesboro Is the only team that is very far from Dupo, but even the champs should not have too much trouble. The meet could prove a tough one to win, too. Beaumont Is rated well and Anna-Jonesboro won the tourney last year. Wood River Is tough, but Dupo gave the Olleri plenty of trouble. And Granite City won the consolation title at.Cen- tra.Ua during the holidays. We don't know how the pairings were drawn for the tourney, but it looks to us as though Dupo kind of figures to get to Its own final— which would ensure a crowd sticking around and making the venture aifinandal success. Picking s weak bracket Is an old practice among host tournament teams. In the upper bracket, Beaumont meets Anna-Jonesboro In the first game, two good teams. The second encounter, still In the upper bracket/ finds Wood River playing Alton, So, In the semi-finals, Wood River Will probably meet either Beaumont or Anna-Jonesboro. So, two tough teams will .be knocked off In the upper bracket befor« the final round. In the lower bracket, the third game finds Freeburg meeting Granite City and the fourth game piti Dupo with Chester. We'd say that the lower bracket is definitely th« weaker. RedbirdsFace Tigers Tonight On Home Floor It's been a long time since th Alton High team has had th pleasure of singing in the shower after a basketball game. Not sine the Benld game have the Redbird done any warbling in the water Tonight they are faced with th prospects of another mum nigh when they are hosts to the poten Tigers of Edwardsville. The Birds have been bounced around rather handily so far— eight times to be painfully exact Twice they have lost to south western Illinois Conference team; Tonight's fracas is another league affair and the locals will be trying to find the solution to the bash ful baskets that have been shying away from them thus far. On the other hand what's with victories with Alton? Well, there' just one. That was Benld in the second game of the season. Afte that the Hilltoppers have been mowed down by Glllespie, Western Military Academy, Belleville, Wood River, Roxana, and then the boy from upstate showed Alton thei prowess—Pontlac and Monmouth The latter two were holiday tour nev opponents. There's a lot to lose for Ed wardsville in tonight's game. High now the Tigers' conference record shows two wins and one setback They are tied for third place with Belleville, which has the same rec ord. Should Alton win, and Belleville win, the Tigers will drop to fourth place with a .500 record. In vice versa form, the Birds have nothing to lose but could gain lot. They are in next to las place in the conference with no wins and two losses. East St Louis has lost three loop affairs to dwell in the cellar (Bless its heart). Game' time, as usual, is 8:15 For the "oily holds" there Is the customary preliminary tilt be tween the sophomore squads. That contest starts at 6:45. Lewis Levine, junior fullba'ck from Harllngen, had the distinct- on of scoring the first and last touchdowns for the University o Texas during the 1949 footbal season. —FOX HUNT- MEETING PLACE Godfrey Civic Club Saturday, Jin, Ttb • A.
