But, after about four weeks 6l rather rough rehearsing, the Texas Tech gridders are quite likely to'v --put a display of fierce footballism. They won't be pulling their punches, although fighting against each other. Coaches Dell Morgan and Berl Huffman have divided the squad **UAAU.1«LA 1_1U * "w. Vfc^I .LU.V.VI VJ.JV, iJ\4UUV4. of some 40 players as equally as possible under pre-season conditions, and each believes his team car, whip the other. The game starts at 6:45 o'clock this afternoon, and the teams will play 10-minute quarters in order to "speed things up and get the contest over in daylight. Get A Defense Stamp Price of admission is one defense stamp per person; adults must present a 2o-cent defense stamp at the gate, kids get in for a dime stamp. No stamps can be purchased at the field, and no money will change hands, so fans are obliged to make stamp purchases before coming to the park. After considerable arguing anc harangueing, Backfield Coach Ber: , i Huffman landed a starting team 1 for his Reds including two experienced varsity guards and three • backs who performed capably Isst season.

Texas Aggies Wear Out Mustangs, 19-5 DALLAS, March 30. (/?)—The Texas Aggies kept their Southwest conference baseball lead today with an easy 19-5 victory over the Mustangs of Southern Methodist. What might have been a Pony rally in the seventh innings was spiked by Cecil Ballow, Aggie shortstop, when he dived for and snagged a line drive off the bat of Dick Harris. Charley Stevenson allowed the Ponies eleven hits, but that easily bested the eighteen safe blows the cadets took off SMU's Jim Tyler. Ira Glass, Aggie second baseman, poled out the afternoon's only home run. David O'Brien Fails To Impress Court WASHINGTON, March 30. (fP) —David O'Brien, Texas Cnristian university football star in 1938, failed today to get a Supreme Court review of a decision that the Pabst Sales company, beer distributors, did not invade his privacy in using his picture on a calendar. The athlete, who sought $50,000 damages from the Pabst firm, ap- pealsd from the Fifth Federal Circuit court. O'Brien's petition contended that he was "the outstanding college football player" in 1938 and that his picture on the calendar "implied endorsement" of the beer. He told the high court .he was humiliated by the use of his picture on 30,000 calendars distributed in 41 states. Houston ""Buffs Get Slamming Outfielder HOUSTON, March 30. W) — Ed Knoblauch, left-hand hitting outfielder obtained from Sacramento of the Coast league for Pitcher Johnny Pintar, reported to the Houton Buffs today. He took over left field for the regulars in an intra-suad game and produced one of the two regular runs with a single. The Yanni- gans turned up with a 4 to 2 win. Knoblauch played for Manager Clay Hopper at Columbus, Ga., for the past two seasons, and in his four years of pro ball has never hit under .328. TIGERS HELP BEAUMONT LAKELAND, Fla., Mar. 30 (IP) —The Detroit Tigers, making the first move to streamline their squad, today sent four players to Beaumont, their Texas league farm club.

H 0IAL 630S EX-LONGHORN RECRUITS FOR NAVY —Fresh off the football i.eld where he became a star ball lugger for University of Texas Jack "Cowboy" Grain, left, above, now is back on the same campus recruiting Navy-Aviation cadets for Uncle Sam CoS- r^mm^ aS -| n ^l! 1 Decently, Grain is pictured here with Lieut. Commander Barry Holton, senior officer of the Naval Aviation selection board of Dallas. His first assignment was to check the University of Texas campus for other potential flying cadets, as a member of the cadet selection board. Former SMU Star Seeks New Fliers For Navy At Tech Young men, 19 years old but %vho are not yet 27 years old, interested in "joining up" with Uncle Sam are invited to confer today with Lieut. Jim Riley, member of the Naval Aviation cadet board of selection, at the Texas Tech gymnasium. Lieut. Riley, former Southern Methodist university football star, and more recently coach of the Woodrow Wilson High school teams at Dallas, is spending two days here interviewing prospective Navy pilots, and urges that all men interested see him today. He interviewed a large number of Texas Tech students and others yesterday, and will continue seeing them today. Take Exams Here With Lieut. Riley is Chief Pharmacist H. P. Bolton, who is assisting with physical examinations of candidates here. All young men who pass the "interview" favorably, and who can qualify according to educational requirements, will be given prelim inary physical examinations on the spot. Passing this, the prospect will be recommended by Lieut. Riley to the Dallas recruiting office which will pay transportation and hotel expenses for a trip to the Dallas office. P r e 1 iminary requirements include at least two years of college work, one one-half the "hours" required for a college degree. Present college students who can qualify, or ex-students not now engaged in militaristics, are invited to confer with Lieut. Riley today. All candidates will be trying for a place in the "V-5" division of Navy aeronautics. If they pass preliminary and secondary tests, they will be ordered to training bases at designated times. May Enter Next Class Riley was commissioned by the U. S. Navy Reserve about two weeks ago, and appointed to the cadet board of selecuon. A star tackle on S.M.U. teams of 1930 1931 and 1932, Riley served as freshman coach at the Dallas school, afterward coached at Garland, and, until commissioned recently, was at Woodrow Wilson High school. "A few places are to be filled in the next cadet class beginning April 23," Riley said "and it is possible that some of ,the boys interviewed here will be called into service at that time. I can not guarantee this, because other members of the board of selection are working in other parts of Texas and Oklahoma, but we are anxious to.interview as many prospective fliers as possible while here today." Lieut. Riley explained, however, that all college students con- Hubbers Due To Drill Tomorrow Bill Altenburg, third baseman regained from Amarillo in a recent negotiation, reported" to Lubbock Hubber baseball club officials Sunday and immediately resorted to a hospital for removal of troublesome tonsils. "BUT; I think he'll be ready to work out with the rest of the new Hubber squad when, it gets together here late this week," said Monty Stratton, Hubber manager and pitcher who arrived I-.ere Ias1 Tuesday. Three Oihers Here Only three other ball players were known to be in town, Stratton said. They are Jack Goetzman, first baseman from Missis- si p p i; Vince Castino : regular catcher who m^es his home here, and Altenburg, who isn't eating very much these days. At least fifteen men, mostly pitchers and catchers, are expected to report Wednesday, Stratton said, after which the rest of the squad of an expected 30 will arrive. Preliminary 'training is scheduled to start tomorrow at the home park. The Hubber spring • training squad is to be quartered at La Fonda apartments, former home of Texas Tech athletes, which has been remodeled.

Get Adler- Rochester SUITS to* Texaris Try But Eastern Golden Glovers Prevail By SID FEDER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK, March 30. —The East's amateur Golden Gloves boxers finally stopped playing "cousin" to the Western wallopers tonight and won the annual intercity competition for the first time in eight years, nine bouts to seven, before a crowd of 16,571 fans in Medison Square Garden. Jimmy Carrolle., the New York heavyweight champion and most highly-touted amateur bigfaoy since Joe Louis was punching for nothing, came through over the Western warrior, Hubert Hood, by the narrowest of margins to preserve the East's slim edge and give the Atlantic seaboard sockers their first team victory since 193-}. Twice since then, the East has managed to tie the annual fuss, but couldn't quite get out in front. Tonight's was the fourth team title for the Easterners in the 15 year competition. The West has won eight and three were deadlocked. Corona Wins, Roye Loses The West got off on top when Melvyn Pullen, an 18-year-old laundry sorter from Dayton, Ohio, found the range in the second and third heats to floor Lee Booker, a New York stevedore, in each of those two rounds, and take the decision in the flyweight alternate tussle, A couple of high school kids hooked up in a slam-bang special in the featherweight alternate bout, and Victor Resto, a Puerto Rican'living in New York, finished with the decision for the Eastern team after flooring Arlo Roye, of San Angelo, in the third round. Roye took a nine-count when a long right uppercut dropped him midway of the final session. ' The two squads split the lightweight bouts, with Doc Henry, New York negro artist, outpoint- ing Julius Menendez, of East St. Louis, in the alternate fight, and Morris Corona, Port Arthur oilfield hand, doing the same to Gene Burton of New York in the championship affair. Corona Just made it by the margin of a one-count knockdown he scored with a right hand smash in the second heat. There were more boos than cheers over the decision, however. Dallas Welter Wins Marv Bryant, a Dallas truck driver and as Irish as corned beef and cabbage, fired a right-cross that snapped like a fire cracker and easily took the welterweight alternate tussle from Joe Bowman, local negro high-schooler. Bryant's only difficulty came from body punishment. Clent Comvay, negro soldier from Cleveland, now stationed at Englewood (NJ) armory and lighting for the Eastern team, had too much reach anS height for aggressive Tom Aura, Austin, Texas, lumber worker, and captured the light-heavyweight title. Attra carried the fight to his tall, skinny rival most of the way, but couldn't get away from Conway's long right hand shots. Phillips Is Beaten Robert Ramsey, West Virginia collegiate institute .graduate from South Charleston, hit Corporal James Phil 1 i p s, soldier-lawyer from Fort Worth and Camp Bowie, Texas, with everything but the ring posts and took the heavyweight alternate fight. Ramsey floored the Texan with a barage of smashes just as the bell rang ending the second, but Phillips came back to carry the fight to his rival in the third.

Kentucky, where boys traditionally are proud of their riflemen's heritage, reported a similar boom. Harry Bobo Knocks Out Lem Franklin PITTSBURGH, March 30. — Harry Bobo, Pittsburgh's dyna- mitting deacon, got up from the floor tonight to score a sensational knockout over the Cleveland heavy weight, Lem Franklin in 2:40 of the first round of their. 10-rbund fight. Bobo weighed 209 1-4- Franklin 196 1-2. The Cleveland negro, essaying a comeback after his eight-round knockout by Bob Pastor last month,, took the full count, draped full length in his own corner, his legs stretched inside the ring. It took his'handlers several minutes to i-evive him sufficiently to raise him to his feet. The knockout came after Bobo had floored his man twice in quick succession for counts of eight and nine. Botao started his sen«a- tiona! spurt after Franklin, a wild right hand swinger, dumped Harry for a three-count with a haymaker right. PIRATES SOCK SOX PASADENA, Calif.,- March 30 VP)— The Pittsburgh Pirates scored five runs in a big seventh in- nmg rally today to tie the score, 0-6, and then got another marker in the eighth to win out over the Chicago White Sox, 7-6.

PETERSBURGH, Fla., March 30. — The New York Yankees are heading for home with a lusterless ball club and if people didn't have so much 'confidence in the managerial genius of Joe McCarthy and the known capabilities ot some of his veterans there might be some doubt about their future. • McCarthy himself is not satisfied. He' does not 'say so, but actions speak louder than'conver- sation and for the first time in the memory' of writers covering the Yanks the team pulied away from camp tonight without thinning out the rookies. - • And Such Hitting! The. pitching has looked good and bad by turns, the fielding just, passable and the hitting has been notable chiefly for its absence. Some of the individual' players are causing concern, though. • Gerry Priddy and Buddy Kassett, both of them striving to hail down regular jobs in the infield, have been unable to show anything at the plate. When they left Hassett had a batting a verage of .129 and Priddy owned a modest .179, and as a result the third base and first base positions still were as open as when training started. Priddy has looked satisfactory in the field and may yet find himself at bat. But Red: Rolfe, who showed up late because of a re- currence'of intestinal trouble'and has n'ot yet played in a game, may be back at his "old stand "in the hot corner. He believes he is well again and McCarthy says the veteran looks much better than was expected. ' . ••. . Hassett's rival for the-first base position left vacant by Johnny Sturm going to the Army is string- bean Ed Levy, who is leading the club hitting with a .342 pace.-, PANTHERS GO DOWN FORT WORTH, March 30 "(/PJ— The.
