TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1930 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE WFTE1M PepKO'sRiley In Fifth With Sizzling Right ST. LOUIS, Jan. 17 <<*>>—Little Willie Pep, master of the featherweight boxers, put his title on the line last night but without much danger of losing it. At one minute and five seconds of the fifth round,,he blasted Charlie Rlley of St. Louis to sleep. Up to that point. Pep had been almost playing, with the little St. Louis Negro who had pleaded for several years for a crack at the title. The first four rounds were all Pep's, while Rlley stayed on the side of caution. For four rounds they waltzed, with now and then a flurry, mostly from Pep, for the chunky Rlley couldn't find a place for his good right. Then, In the fifth, Pep found a place for his knockout punch and let It go. Pep had feinted with a left. Like a streak of lightning the right came barreling through, an uppercut to the jaw, and Riley ready for a follow-through spun 45 degrees then fell flat on his face, out cold. His handlers had to pull his mouthpiece out. by force. Several minutes later he was still dazed. As he was helped over to Pep's earner to offer congratulations from glistening, half-closed eyes, he again dropped to one knee. The knockout, was Pep's forty- sixth in 145 bouts. Pep, who hails from Hartford, Conn., weighed 123 \4, his lightest weight for a title fight. Rlley was 125 H, half a pound Inside the limit. St. Louis through the years has not been a city of big boxing crowds, so last night's gross gate of $56,905 set. a record. A total of 11,115 paid. Half of the net proceeds, after taxes, went to Pep, and 10 percent to Riley. NCAAFootball Rules Group Plans Changes By KEN ALYTA PINEHURST, N. C., Jan. 14, (ftl —The air was thick with thought waves today as the football rules committee of the National Collegiate Athletic Association headed into the second of three days of deliberation. In an orderly scene whose quiet was in sharp contrast to the con- fus^on dominating last week's NCAA meeting in New York, the committee sit down around the conference table for two -more sessions wherein it considered the college football rules and possible changes for next season. The group held closed morning and afternoon sessions yesterday planning the same schedule today and what it hoped would be a similar windup program tomorrow Chairman Bill Bingham of Harvard hopes that the 17-man group will be able to close out its work by tomorrow, although, if necessary, a Thursday morning session will be held. No official announcements, are being made until after the final session adjourns. Then all changes will be announced. Results of preliminary provisional votes are never disclosed as a matter of committee policy. Bingham believes in giving committee members an opportunity to think over their early votes, so that when it, comes time for a final "yes" or "no" the 'men voting will feel free to change their minds if so inclined. No.radical changes are expected in the playing code. The coaches last week handed down several recommendations for committee consideration. THey, in effect, endorsed the controversial two platoon system by recommending that each team be avowed to substitute without penalty after each down, The rules committee generally follows the recommendations of the coaches and no change In policy Is expected here. In addition to Bingham and A. R. Hatchens of Lake Wales, Fla., committee secretary, a representative from each of the eight NCAA districts is on hand for the discussions. The coaches, various conferences and the high school field are also represented. Fight* Lnnt WgM Bjr THE ASSOCIATED MrtSS ST. LOUIS—Willie Pep, 123V,, Hartford.

Minesota 94 State Preps in Regional Meets Facing Upsets SPRINGFIELD, 111., Jan. 17. (Jfi —District and regional tournament assignments for more than 700 downstate prep basketball .earns were announced today /by he Illinois High School Association, Many of the current favorites fot the state crown are placed in regionals with strong challengers. The opening round of the state itle eliminations throws 284 small schools into 47 district meets Feb. 21-24. The winners will join the 433 larger schools assigned directly to the regional tournaments which will be played Feb. 28-March 3. After that will follow the 15 sectional meets and then the 16-team finals at Champaign March 16-18. Mt. Vernon, the No. 1- rated downstate club for the Illinois championship, is assigned to its own regional and should have no trouble advancing into the section al. , But some other topflight con lenders, including Argo, Rock Island and Elgin, don't expect an easy time. The unbeaten Argo quintet will play at Cicero Morton, where the host team and Riverside may cause serious trouble. Rock Island, currently the highest regarded entry from the Northwest area, is plaWd in the same regional with Moline and East Moline. Both of these opponents put up stiff arguments before bowing to Rock Island earlier this season. The Elgin Maroons play at home where the field includes once- beaten Crystal Lake and Dundee and Arlington Heights, all capable of springing an upset. None of the top 15 teams in this week's Associated Press poll are sent to the same tournaments. West Aurora, the No. 2 down state contender, is favored to take its regional but Marmion of Aurora and Wheaton might make it a t,angup battle. Flora's big hurdle in Its own tournament probably will be Teu- :opolls, a small school sporting a long list of triumphs this season. Danvil|e, Decatur and Freeport are heavy choices 10 capture their own regional prizes. So is Cen- tralla at Salem. Bradley, one of the ranking teams In the northern area, probably will have to beat Kankakee to emerge from the regional. Both schools are assigned to the Bradley meet. Back in December, Bradley defeated Kankakee by one point. Hillsboro, whose record right now is 12 wins and one loss, may have to repeat over Gillespie In the letter's meet. The Hillsboro outfit downed Gillespie last week by five points. Wood River, tagged as the best in the Southwest, will have Its hands full in the Collinsville tourney. Collinsville also is strong and Edxyardsville and Madison are teams that pull surprises now and then. The Ottawa Pirates, who stage their own regional, look for the most trouble from Streator, the only team to defeat Ottawa so far this season.
