The fans roared as Andy Anderson, 6 foot 4 inch Negro star, performed all of the Goose Tatum tricks and Million Harvest McGil- vory and. Jim Winters entered into the clowning. A different reaction from that of the fans came from Joe Hutton, conch of 1051 champion Hamline. Hutfon commented: "It was a new experience for me in intercollegiate sports. I felt that it was completely uncalled for. It's the first time 'I've ever soon it done outside of the pro- fcssinnal Harlem Globetrotters. "Portland, played a great game and our kids played poorly. I could see no reason for them (Portland) humiliating a beaten team. Had Portland boosted the score to 100 points while playing basketball that would have been okay with us.

Kell Says He Plans To Alone For Poor Year tiger Star Feels He Can Make Better Record This Season lakeland, Fia.-OT-aoorgc Kell declared 'today he is o u t ' t o atone for a "disappointing" 1051 season and is serving notice he has set. .his sights on the American League batting title. The sandy-haired Detroit Tiger star claims he had a poor year at bat and in the field the past season. All Kell .hit ir 1951 was .319 and his :960 fie'.ding percentage led all. the third basemen in the circuit. Most any other third-sacker \vould give up a month's salary Lo have such a "poor" year. "I feel I had a bad year, figures to the contrary notv/lthrtandlng," baseball's top hot corner guardian insisted. "Even when 1 w lead- Ing the league in batting with only three weeks to go, I knew that I wasn't hitting we'll. I didn't get. hose extra base hits. "Just look at my runs batted in totals. 1 drove in only 59 runs. That's about half as many as 1 knocked across in 1950. Xell had 101 RBIs in 1950. "My fielding average was 22 points under my 1950 mark ot .982 and I committed more than twice is many errors--20 to 0 than the orcvious year. Don't ask me why. just don't know. Kell, whose 343 mark in 1949 enabled him to nose out Ted Wiliams for the batting title, thinks le has a good chance to top the Jailers again. Kell, who spent a busy winter dividing his lime betwee.i cattle ranch and cotton rarm in his native Swifton, Ark., believes the Tigers arc the only am among the five top contenders to show any improvement over last year.

He next defends against Rocky Grazianp in Chicago April 16.and against Paddy Young in New York May 16 "if I still have the title."
