Those things burn you and you Would think they would have the brains to not block the way, so I probably gave this little guy. a glare. A little guy in a yellow coat, a little blue-jaw Broadway type in a yellow coat and the hat brim down on his shoulders, He gave nie a glare' back and then he let out a yell; "Hey," I hollered "Sammy Taub," and. it is "What do you know?", "Where you been?', "Do you ever see Whitoy?" In those days, you know, the old days, Sammy" was a shorthand man and a. sort of a secretary for Bat Masterson, the old Dodge City marshal, or sheriff, who came on to write fights for the Morning Telegraph in the carbarn across from where Madison Square Garden is now. On the spot where Dempsey had that big restaurant on the southeast corner of Fiftieth and Eighth avenue was the old Morning Telegraph and they say the Plant really was a no-kidding-barn 1 in; the horse-car days when the horse-power boarded' in the ''stalls atfthe, back-. . . • . Long afterward, when Joe Moore bought it and blew a chunk, there in the twenties; Gene Fowler was the managing editor and he used to draw a deep breath and close his eyes and say, "Ah, • that old atmosphere, just'the right atmosphere "for a horse-paper." I,l eave it to Sammy Taub or Jim McGumnens or Louella Parsons — she was-there, too, in those days —if it didn't still have that Churchill Downs bouquet. Ed Bradley used,to. say it was good for you. Crot ammonia in it. Make YOU 'live a long time. Bradley,hit 84. Fowler had the Telegraph some years after Bat Masterson and Ren Wolf and Baird Leonard who did that beautiful verso for the old Life and sometimes covered the Giants. A girl, named Eaird.

Not with the troupe on the road nor neither even in the press coop, but this one could write base- pall in anybody's league and better than most of the stags. Not one of y ° ur chew-tobacco types, either. When Fowler had the Morning Telegraph he hired all the guys around town lie figured should have had a raise years ago. If old Ochs and Oggie Reid wouldn't raise deserving journalists, big-hearted uene Fowler would, with Joe Moore s money. Lardner was pretty well washed by then and, anyway, if you want to know, he-never was; much good in newspapers. Magazines, yes. Wonderful. But for daily, no.

The Lewis boys owned the telegraph then' brought Bat on to Broadway because he was famous as a fearless •lontier sheriff. I think he must lave been flaking off when I sued •o see him a little around the fight business toward the end of his ca reer because they used to say he was such a hell of a fight writer, out to me, frankly, he had no Class. Just abusive. To prove he wasn t afraid of anybody, he would not only pick the toughest people m town to write about, but he would roll into an Irish restaurant and most of the good ones wore insh then, and call the waiter a dumb, thick turkey. They just Untied him along because he wasn t the old Bat Mastei-.son any more. Not even an interesting character any more, bul just an Ola, roaring pest, so they took a lot from him that they wouldn't nave taken frcvn anybody else From being Bat's' caddy, little bammy graduated into the niorn- >ng telegraph's fight man and, wncn they had room enough, he could do you-a story like a moving Picture with those Arabian chicken-tracks of his.

They ruled that Amos Black;, second string tackle, is too old for high school competition. The ACAA is made up of school officials throughout- the district. At the beginning of the season Black submitted a notarized 'affU davit signed by his mother,, that he was within the age limit, which apparently was acceptable to 'the association previous to last night The association last night • based its ineligible ruling on an armydis- chargo •' . .;• • • ..-...: Black contends he had to boost his age in order to get. into the service. : Information concerning Black's army discharge was furnished ;the association by E.

C. Floyd Huff, Hot Springs attorney, and State Senator Ernest Maner were told by> Brown that "if you continue with this hearing I will incarcerate you in county jail for.contempt." Huff, elected by the county bar to sit for Chancellor Sam Garratt who'is in Florida, had called for hearing a taxpayer's petition to enjoin the Hot Springs : City 'Council from installing George Callahan,' chief deputy sheriff, as Hot Springs police chief; The petition, which Maner was'- presenting, ' charged that the council had violated Civil Service provisions in electing Callahan. Brown sent a deputy sheriff to the chancery chambers to summon Huff and Manor. They refused to come. Brown then ordered Sheriff I. G. Brown to bring Huff and Maner before him '.'by force, if: necessary." They followed the sheriff into Brown's courtroom and> the circuit judge informed them he had assumed jurisdiction. Both Huff and Maner declared the circuit judge could not assume jurisdiction of a chancery matter" Brown then asked Huff if he had been sowrn in as acting chancellor Huff replied he though so. The circuit judge declared he did have authority to assume jurisdiction in the case and had done so He advised Huff and Maner he would near the petition at 1 p. m. They both .objected strenuously but did not attempt to continue' the hearing in chancery court. Huff is an attorney for former Mayor Leo P. McLaughlin whose wolitical organization was unseated last year by an ex-servicemen's group in which Judge Brown and Sheriff Brown were active. Freezing Rains Hit Wide Area of Hie U. S. By The Associated Press The damaging i?e storm that dis- riiptcd communications over contra) and western Kansas and parts of Iowa yesterday moderated today I as it centered in central lower Michigan. Freezing rains also were reported in parts of western New York state and there were falls of rain and snow over the midwest The early morning weather amp however, showed no sub-zero temperatures. The lowest lemnera- Ilures were in Maine and in North ' Dakota, although the low of 12 above at Pembina, N.D., compared to yesterday morning's 19 below Caribou, Me., reported the minimum reading, 2 above. . There's been some" upstate grumbling about the failure of district one to place a player on the Arkansas Athletic Association's All-State High School football teams. A' prime reason was that only .three of that big district's nine 1 coaches 'took the trouble to vote in the poll in which the honor teams were-selected. No other district recorded such a light vote. IivClass AA, for instance, all other districts voted ( nearlyten masse. And Little Rock High Coach Wilson Matthews .'is disgruntled because his ace, back, Kermit Tracy, was overlooked. ' "He's the best all-around back in the state," contends Matthews. "No other boy does as much — he blocks, backs up the line and is one of the finest high school passers I've seen." And, speaking of all-star -teams, Howard Pearce, former University of Arkansas guard now assistant mentor at Little Rock High, was one who wasn't surprised at failure of the Razorbacks' Clyde Scott to make the first All-America team. "You've got to win more games than Arkansas did this year to get a man on the All-America," says Pearce. "Nig Bynum (who played with Pearce at Arkansas and now is coaching at Blytheville) was an All-America tackle if there ever was one, but the Razorbacks had .osing teams when he played and ie didn't even make All-Southwest Conference." Barnhill Has Good Bowl Record By CARL BELL Associated Press ports Editor John Barnhill will make his fourth bowl appearance in six years as a head football coach when the ' Arkansas Razorbacks tangle with William and Mary in the Dixie Bowl New Year's Day. • In four years as boss man at Tennessee, Barney took his teams to the Rose and Sugar Bowls. Last year he took over at Arkansas and landed in the' Cotton Bowl.

Why don't they get George Washington? The ball carrying duel between Scott and Doak Walker, Southern Methodist's Ail-American, was vir- :aally a stalemate. Walker ran with :he Pigskin even more times ihan the Razorback workhorse and letted more yards, but Scott had .he better average per try. In con- 'erenee games only, Scott gained 418.vards to Walker's 437 but also pst more.: Walker had a net of 381 on 06 rushes for an average of 3.96. Scott;averaged 4.24 by netting 365 yards on 8G carries. For the-entire season, Walker carried 163 times for 684 yards net, an. ayoage of 4.19, and Scottan 136 times for 620 yards and a mean of 4.56. And both of these hip-dippers will be back next year to continue their argument. Another Arkansas Athletic Association officials clinic is coming up at Little Rock Sunday. This one's for basektball referees. The session at the Little Rock boys club—10 a. m. to 5 p. m.—will be featured by rules interpretations and a discussion of duties of coaches and officials toward each other. Officials' duties will be outlined by—that's right—a coach. And an Official will tell the coaches what they should do. • ' i o Durocher's Return as Dodger Manager Appears Likely Brooklyn, Dec. 5 — (/P) — Leo Durocher's return as manager of ;he Brooklyn Dodgers appeared mmenent today with President Branch Rickey summoning his official family'into a hurred conference. '.Riqkey is expected to time the well-worn news for Monday release. Rickey insists that Durocher, suspended by iCommissioner A. B. Chandler for last season, had not yet been signed. However persis- :eht newspaper and radio stories ;hat Durocher was getting back nis old iob, brought members of the Dodger delegation hurrying lome from the Miami, Fla. winter meetings. Burt Shotton, who managed the Brooks to the 1947 pennant, bustled into town fromhis Bartow, Fla. lome. Rickey also summoned to the conference in his offices today the .hree Dodger coaches, Clyde Sukc- forth, Ray Blades and Jake Filler. o Marshall Arrives Early for Meet With Molotov London. Dec. .5 —(.-P) — Secretary of State Marshall arrived half an hour early for his luncheon appointment with Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov today and chose to drive around London on a sightseeing trip rather than wait in Ihe Russian embassy, his aides said. American sources said Marshall arrived early because of a misunderstanding over the time of the luncheon. He was received courteously and offered the hospitality of the embassy but told attaches that Ambassador Lewis Douglas, who accompanied him. hao been wanting to show him points of interes.1 in London. Marshall and Douglas drove; off and returned later. Marshall went to the Russian embassy to meet Molotov after the Russian minister declined an invi- tion to luncheon at the U.S. embassy. Officials speculated that Marshall, at the meeting, tried to determine whether Molotov was willing to make any concessions on Germany which might lead to some agreements in the Foreign Ministers Council. New York, Dec. 5 — (UP) — The last light drills -will be held today and the regular 1947 football season will end tomorrow, highlighted by the annual clash between unbeaten Notre Dame and Southern California Pacific Coast champion, at Los Angesles. Notre Dame probably will be a two-touchdown favorite to end its schedule with its ninth straight victory and will be making its last bid for the 1947 mythical natonal championship. Michigan, Notre Dame's chief rival for national honors, will meet USC in the Rose Bowl Jan. 1 and the two midwest teams showing against the Trojans probably will determine the na- i. lr >ns No. ;one team. , But the Trojans, unbeaten and tied only by Rice in eight starts, have their own ideas about both games and USC Co.ach Jeff Cravath, always noted for the strength of his teams in late season tussles, has groomed his boys to unleash a bristling ground and air offense. Cravaths quarterbacks, George Murphy and Jim Powers, have passing records that match the more publicized throwing prowess of, Irish signal callers Johnny Lujack and Frank Tripucka. The game, unless Notre Dame comes up with the type of galloping ground attack that crushed Army, may well, be an aerial show put on -by the rival quarterbacks. Three bowl games will be played this weekend.

FulUrton, Jr. Louis Big Favorite to Tag Walcott By JACK CUDDY New York, Dec. 5. —(UP)—How quickly can Champion Joe Louis knock out Jersey Joe Walcott tonight in their fight for the world's heavyweight championship? That seemed to be the major question as champion and challenger—each 33 years old — came into New York today from their training camps for the bout. The possibility of a Wajcott victory: seemed so negligible as: to be almost entirely overlooked. Although Louis was favored at 10 to 1 to make his 24th successful defense of the title with comparative case, the Madison Square Garden box office predicted a near- capacity gate of $230,000 — setting a new garden record. Hard-headed bookies were offering 10 to 1 on Louis; but sentimentalists were hoping that| the "brown Cinderella man from Camden. N. N., would 'climax his rags-to-riches come-back by Upsetting Louis, one of the greatest champions in ring histbry. Louis was favored because of his remarkable record of. losing only to' Max Schmeling in 59 professional fights and of making 23 successful defenses of the heavyweight crown. Bomber Joe was favored also be'' cause of his physical advantages over the challenger. He expected to have a weight advantage- of nearly 20 pounds over Jersey Joe with a figure of 212 pounds against Walcott's 192 or 193. In addition, Louis had advantages of height and reach. Statistics disclosed that jolting Joe stood six feet, two inches, against six feet for Walcott. However, those statstics seemed to give the challenger a "break," for Walcott actually appears to stand about five foot, 10. Louis' advantage in reach was 70 inches to 74. Louis, who is working on a string of 15 straight knockouts, seemed to have advantages of fist-speed and explosive punching over the challenger. However, the lew Walcott supporters pointed out that the stocky Camden, N. J., Negro was' much faster afoot than the'cham- pion and also much more shifty in his boxing. Handlers of Walcott hoped that his elusive style and fast footwork might evade the champion's left jab and following rights. They emphasize that if Jersey Joe could avoid "freezing up" in the first round he might come on to give Louis an entertaining fight. Walcott, father of six children was picked for tonight's challenge because he appeared to be the best of a mediocre crop of contenders- After being resurrected from . the puglistic scrap heap in 1945, he came back brilliantly and beat such notables as Joe Baksi, Lee Q. Murray, Curtis Sheppard, Jimmy Bivins, Lee Oma. and Tommy Gomez. In late 1946 he lost to Joey Maxim and Elmer R'ay on disputed decisions. But in return bouts this year he defeated Maxim twice and Ray once. o-— * Fights Last- By The Associated Press Chicago — Anton Raadik, 161, Estonia, outpointed Al "Red" Priest, 154 1-2, Cambridge, Mass.
