1- PAO« TWELVE ALTON tVKNtttO TELEOftAMt TUESDAY, JANUARY 10, 1950 Contest at East Junior To Give Shurtleff Five Chance for Win No.! By JOt$* to. FOCMT Telegraph Sports Editor The Shurtleff Pioneer basket ball quintet, boasting a record o six wins in Its first nine games, will take the floor at East Junior High gym Wednesday night in *iearch of Its first conference vie tory and teventh win of the cur rent campaign, facing the tough Hawks of Quincy College. The game will start at 8:30 p. m. The students of Coach Merle Pearce have shown plenty of cage talent In winning games from Har rls Teachers College, Scott Fielc Air Base, Carthage College, Oak land City College, and Concordla Of St. Louis. The Carthage quin tet has fallen victim to the Pio tieers' basket technique twice. On ly teams to stop the Shurtleff crew were Missouri School of Mines Illinois Normal and Illinois COl Icge. .In their first nine games, tlv Pioneer basketball players have racked up a total of 581 points for an average of 64.5 per game This it eight points per game bet' ter than their foes have averaged 56.5, on 508 points in nine encounters. Of the three Shurtleff setbacks one was a 47-45 decision to the Missouri School of Mines, one was an 11-polnt margin, 62-51, to Illinois College, and the third was really decisive, 71-41, nt the hands of Illinois Normal of Bloomlngton. Tho leading scorer for the Plo'• ncers thus far in the season is : Dutch Miller, who hns hit the hoop for a total of 149 points In nine games for an average of 16.5 per game. Rob Poo has an average of almost exactly 10 points per encounter on 89 points in the schedule so far. Bob Jones has an average of 10.25 points per game, hitting only 82 points, but racking them up in only eight games. The other two starters for the Pioneers are George Gaunder, who has accounted for 63 points and John Logan, lanky plvotman, who hai hit for 67 markers. Chief scorers among the Shurtleff subs are Louis Hauser with 40 markers and Will Poe with 33. Both boya hnve seen considerable action and are heavily counted on to spell the regulars when the going igets fast and constant. The Pioneers opened up the new year in a convincing manner with a neat 63-55 win over Concordia of St. Louis. That game, however, was the first of eight that they will have to play In January. This month, with Quincy the second game, finds Pearce's crew going up against another conference op- »poneht, Eureka, Saturday, nnd then playing McKendree, Principle, Blackburn, Harris Teachers College and Scott Field In that order. The Pioneers have wins over Harris and Scott Field already on the record books, but the Prlnclpia Indians may prove rugged as their only loss of the season was to a rough 'independent team, the Standard Oilers of Wood River. During January the Pioneers will *also complete their first round-robin in the Pioneer Conference cage race, playing Quincy, Eureka and McKendree all within five days. The second round of conference play for the Pioneers comes in February.

(Tug) Wilson says he expects a new Rose Bowl football pact belween the Big Ten and Pacific Coast Conferences to be signed shortly. Wilson, commissioner of athletics of the Big Ten, predicted the two conferences would get together this week in New York City at the annual meeting of the National College Athletic Association and make final arrangements. Wilson also said the new agreement "may be for years to come, not Just five." Other ^lg .Ten Conference officials who attended the U. S. Olympic Association meeting here told a reporter that "the Big Ten would like to have the new pact drawn up for a ten year period or longer. There have been wmo reports that the Big Ten-Pacific Conference Rose Bowl tie-up might be weakening. However, one Big Ten veteran commented: "The coast's pride won't iet them quit now. They're out to give us a shellacking from now oi\." Since the flve-ye^r Rose Bowl agreement which •»«•• with the 1951 game WM signed, the Western ConferejKW h*f won all four games.

Darkhorsesin Good Shape to Surprise Preps SPRINGFIELD, 111., Jan. 10 < —A dozen sharp teams that haven't been attracting much statewide attention may cut a fancy figure In the showdown stage of the 1111* nois prep basketball title race. Season after season, unheralded quintets spill many favorites when elimination play begin* for the cage crown. This season's batch of overlooked clubs which have ben crowded out of the top 15 poll ratings include Argo, Elgin, Murphysboro, Peorla Manual, Glllesple and Evanston. The Argo Argonauts, sparked by six foot, six inch Harold Grant, have spilled all 11 opponents so far. Last Friday, they trounced Kankakee's strong entry by a ^20- polnt margin. Argo Is a southwest Chicago suburb. The five other schools have been defeated only once in the campaign. At Elgin, Coach John Krafft, who had the favorite In the state tournament last year but lost, has developed another sturdy unit. His lads bowed to Morton of Cicero in the schedule inaugural but since have collected eight straight victories. Eltfin is one of two teams which have whipped highly regarded Freeport. Murphysboro Is another outfit that got off on the wrong foot with a loss, then whirled through its next seven starts with ease. The Red Devils show convincing triumphs over .Johnston City and Plnckneyville, two seldom-stopped contenders. Pcoria Manual's Rams tacked a feather in their cap last week by toppling Peorla Spaulding from the undefeated list. Other Manual wins were scored over Lincoln, Streator, Galesburg, East Peoria, Peoria Woodruff and Peoria Central. Its single setback was dealt by Decatur's powerful Reds, Gillcsple opened its season with nine straight wins and then was upset by Benld. Since then, the team has bagged three in a row Including a prized 48-41 conquest of Springfield Cathedral last Friday. Evanston looks like the top threat in the Chicago Suburban Conference with seven victories and a loss to Morton as Its record to date. Quincy fans believe their Blue Devils have good prospects of getting to the state tournament in March. Among their victims have been Murmiom of Aurora, Monmouth and East Mollne. Their three losses in 12 starts were dealt by Dccatur, Rock Island and Tllden Tech of Chicago. West Rockford has shown a strong scoring punch in downing all opponents except West Aurora and Vandalia. Vandalin, too, has earned bou quets for its fine performance against tough competition. On the credit side are nine wins, compared with a loss to Hlllsboro and Lwo defeats by Centralla. Up north, Dundee's - Cardinals had been sailing along smoothly until last Friday when they bumped into little Geneva. The 57-44 upset by Geneva cracked Dundee's string of 61 straight Little Seven Conference victories. Geneva has season record of 15-2 in all games. In the midstate area, Cathedral of Springfield and Lincoln are expected to make strong bids in the Vlarch tournaments. Both have dropped three contests, Cathedral has won eight and Lincoln nine.

But he, and his loyal gallery, nay be reckoning without a craftsman almost as cool as Bantam Ben himself. Barber already has seen a cinch win in this richest of winter tournaments washed Into he nearby Pacific, yet he has Munded back to shoot even better golf. The 140-pound golf glove sales- Man from Pasadena put u one- >ver-|.iar 72 with Ills previous 69>8 yesterday to take it two-stroke end in the tourney at 209. Hosun vlio wus tied for sixteenth after he first round, carded his second uccesslve 69 to wind up only two trokes back. You could get all sorts of arguments in the locker room and grill at Riviera Country Club last night ver whether Hogan, who wr • eared hopelessly crippled lest than a year ago, can do It. Most o( the slayers think he can. Fair weath- r U forecast and Hogan reports ie'i feeling good. For Barber, the picture hut> hanued a lot since Saturday.

Frisch to Help Pick Grimm's Successor CHICAGO, Jan. 10, W»—Field Manager Frankie Frisch apparently will have something to say about the Chicago Cubs' vice- president successor to ( Charlie Grimm, who resigned to become manager of Dallas In the^Tcxas League. Owner P. K. Wrigley said today that Grimm's replacement won't be named until Frisch arrives Jan. 20 from his home at New Rochelle, N. Y.

Almost swimming, he shot a two-over-par 73 while the rest of the field floundered so sadly that only one pur was turned in. A lot of the entrants quit, but were given another chance when the rules committee, after long debute, ruled the course unplayable and sponged Hurbfr's 210 off the Scoreboard. Hogan didn't finish, but he was Hailing Barber by nine Strokes when the cancellation came.

Sanity Code to Cause Fight at NCAA Meeting NEW YORK, Jan. 10, (JPi— The National Collegiate Athletic Association opened its annual meeting here today, confronted with a "sanity code" issue trfat threatened a major rift In the organization. »Karl E. Leib, president of the NCAA, issued a preliminary blast on the controversial question, suggesting that 'schools that can't comply with i the code get out of big time football. Several southern schools, including the University of Virginia, promise a battle to the finish on the two-year-old code which sharply restricts subsidization of athletes. Leib, one-time faculty adviser on athletics at the University of Iowa, said more than 20 schools admitted last summer non-compliance with the code. He said, however, that 14 of them promised to behave, and were put on probation. "Sever) schools have openly said they can't comply and don't intend to," Leib declared In an interview at Washington where he, attended a meeting of the U. S. Olympic committee. The NCAA never has disclosed the seven schools, but four are known. They are Virginia Tech, Virginia Military, The Citadel, and Virginia, "Although .the code Is by no means perfect," Leib said, "I think it can be made to work, It's up to the various school executives to make "their institutions obey. "The failure of any school to meet the code's requirements can be laid directly at the university president's door because in reality- he alone is responsible." A special compliance committee which has investigated the schools !• expected to bring its report before the NCAA executive committee tomorrow. If the executive committee approves a motion to expel the colleges from the NCAA, it must be pproved by a vote of two-thirds of the delegates at a general sea*' slon Saturday. The NCAA constitution prohibits naming the seven culprits until Saturday. Expulsion would mean the schools could not play NCAA members in any sport. The NCAA It composed of 279 member schools, and 27 confer* ences, which would have 306 votes if all attend. Colgate W. Darden, president of the University of Virginia, has asked to be permitted to present his cue to the convention. l»r*fi ItaifcelMI .

HoosiersFall To Michigan in Big Ten Race CHICAGO, Jan. 10, UPi — Highly-rated Indiana was just running in the pack today as the Big Ten basketball race, only eight games old, had two brand new surprises, Michigan and Northwestern. The erstwhile sizzling Hoosiers, winners of their first 10 starts, were cooled off by Michigan's snappy Wolverines, 69-67, In a rousing upset at Ann Arbor last night. At the same time, Northwestern matched Michigan's record of two straight conference wins by spoiling hlgh'ly-regarded Minnesota's league debut, 60-53, at the Chicago Stadium. That left the Wolverines and Wildcats deadlocked with Ohio State for first place, although the Buckeyes don't make their second conference start until Saturday night, when they meet Northwestern at Columbus. The Buckeyes, who walloped Illinois by an overwhelming 83-62 score In their sole loop test to date, wound up the 'stadium program here last night with a 70-62 march past De Paul. That squared accounts with the Blue Demons, who had edged Ohio State 70-68 earlier at Columbus. In the third conference clash last night, defending champion Illinois (1-2) finally crashed the win column with a 59-54 decision over distraugnt Purdue (0-2.) Just before the Boilermakers took the floor at Champaign, the Lafayette, Ind., Journal & Courier demanded their coach, Mel Taube, resign "in the best interest of Pur- j due basketball." Taube, who has a four-season record of 37 wins and 35 losses at the Purdue helm, said he regarded the' newspaper's attack on him as "too ridiculous to consider." Indiana's downfall in its second conference start came on a game- ending tip-in basket by Michigan's Charley Murray. The clock showed one second left to play. Wasted was a 26-point performance by Indiana's brilliant guard, Lou Watson. • Northwestern's great scoring duo of Ray Ragelis and Jake Fendley popped in 33 points between them. Minnesota got a 22-point stint from (Scooter) Skoog, but the Gophers faded in the closing minutes. Besides the important Northwestern-Ohio State clash, next Saturday's conference card 'includes Indiana at Iowa (0-1), Michigan at Wisconsin (1-1) and Purdue at Minnesota. In other games involving mid- west teams last night, Bradley trounced Georgetown of Kentucky 79-39, for the Braves' twelfth win in 14 starts; Loyola of Chicago turned back Syracuse, 71-59; and Detroit belted Michigan State, 6456.
