The Jayha-wks considered far weaker than usual this year, rated little consideration in pre- tournament talk. Oklahoma A. and M. .Aggies who trounced Iowa State in their first round game, 44-33, will clash with Nebraska in the semifinal tilt. The Nebraskans also scored an upset in the first round coming from behind to edge Missouri, 4G- 44. Nebraska, like Kansas was considered a poor bet in the eight- team tournament. Both Kansas State and Oklahoma A. and M. are highly favored to win tonight's games, however, dcsnite their opponents' 'surprise showings. The lan!:y A. and M. team overshadowed Iowa State although the cyclones threatened twice in the last half to even the count. Big A. L. Bennett dropped in 14 o£ the Ag- gies points. The Kansas State Wildcats, whose pro-tournament record show four victories including a win over Tndiana University, . earned, their way into the semifinals by beating tho Oklahoma Sooners 55 to 48. In consolation bracket games today, Missouri plays Iowa State at 2 p. m. (Central Standard Time) and Oklahoma is scheduled to meet Colorado at 4 p. m. The Kansas State-Kansas tussle is scheduled for 7:45 p. m. and the Nebraska-Oklahoma A. and M. game for 9:30 p. m. Legionaires Win Third Straight Gome The local American Legion basketball team defeated Patmos Independents 58 to 23 last night at the school in' a one-sided contest that gave the locals their third straight win with no losses. T. C. Williams led the Legion scorers with 16 points, followed by C. Laha with 14 markers. Good floor play by Rogers, Ross and J. Polk contributed much to the victory. O. Reeves was the star of the Patmos squad, looping in 1C points putting him in a tic with Williams.

It meant that millions of war-workers got premium pay of 50 percent 100 percent, or even more, not for overtime worked as boss-driven slaves, but as sheer graft. They got an outright gift of $25 a week or more, or a little less, sometimes from the government, through the medium of war contracts, through a dozen theiving tricks, worked out by union bosses in connivance sith the war labor board and the contractors. The contractors didn't mind. Mind? They loved it. it ran up their profits, based on a percentage of the costs. The more the workers were allowed to graft, the more the contractors made. Hundreds of thousands refused to work Mondays or Tuesdays 'unless they were guaranteed work for Saturday and Sundays. The work clone on overtime days and on over time hours at night was worth no more than any other work. It was a raw racket and the people who squandered this ill-gotten loot on brass jewelry will deserve any hardship that is put upon them by lhe inflation. Thai can't be done.

Because the antagonists—Southern Methodist and Penn .State— rank one-two in the nation for the 1947 foptbal season in running back kickoffs, according to .figures supplied by the N.ational Collegiate Athletic Bureau. Both returned kickoffs for touchdowns. S o U th e r n Methodist against Santa Clara on Doak Walker's 98-yard dash and Penn State against Bucknell with Larry Joe going 95 yards. The S. M. U.

Florida averaged 19.1 yard on 32 runbacks. The Oklahoma Ag- j;ie safelymen handled 43 punts— 11 more than Florida—to average oijly inches less in average per return at 19.fi yards. The Aggie total of 802 yards was tops for recent years. , Arkansas was seventh in the nation with 40 punt runbacks for a 17.2 average. Kansas Stale ran back 27 for a 1G.G figure and Drake was llth with 22 for a 16.4 average. Tulsa placed seventh in kickoff f runbacks with 26 for a 24.4 average. Penn Stale and Texas Christian caught the greatest number of punts—57 apiece. In total yards returned, Oklahoma A&M's 802 yards was followed by Alabama at 770: Michigan, .751; Texas,.: 7.15; and Texas' Christian 709. Other highs and lows for 2947 major teams as recorded by the bureau included: Fewest of own passes intercepted—Missouri, with four. Those four yielded only 24 runback yards, also low for the year. Team benefiting most from penalties—Kansas State, which gained more from the referee than.it was able to muster for itself. The winless K-Staters got the bnefit of 84 opposition fouls-for 835 yards, wile thev only netted 783 yards from their own rushing offense.

And all those those offered by the Republican controlled banking committee — which has none in mind — and (C) gives protesting Democrats the privilege of trying to kill the bill on a motion to send it back to committee. Since only a majority vote is required under such procedure, pas sage of the measure was virtually certain. Democrats 'weren't discussing their house chances, but they ried out against the procedure barring 'loor amendments. Rep. Monroney (D-Okla) called it "an unthinkable, iiipergag rule." Republicans sought to justify the 'take it or leave it" procedure by claiming time would not permit he lengthy debate that usually ac companies unlimited opportunity o offer amendments. Based primarily on voluntary ac ion to "halt inflationary price rises .he bill introduced by Senator Taft (R-Ohio) would: 1. Permit the president to consult with industry, business and agriculture representatives to en- jourage agreements to keep prices in line. The agreements could provide !or parceling out scarce commoci- ;ies among the various users, for regulation of speculative trading, Eor controls over inventories, lhat. s the amount of materials on hand and for the allocation of transpor ;alion facilities, such as box cars. The agreements cpuld not, how ever, provide for price fixing. 2. Extend until Feb. 28, 11149, the president's power to control ex ports. 3. Continue until the same date controls over rail transportation facilities. Both of these controls now are dae to lapse next February 29. Set up a tood conservation program in this country and a pro gram to pormole food and livestock feed production in non-European countries, both to be voluntary. 5.

The same group tabbed great- Ohio State and Iowa as the esl disappointments. Rated on the basis of recovery after a shaky start the honors would have gone to North Carolina, Oregon and Alabama which finished strong. But the poll was conducted with the idea of comparing final results with pre-season expectations. Lynn Waldorf, coaching the California Boars for the first time, walked into a tough job. The team lost seven of nine starts in 1946. In a complete reversal of form by many of the same players, California won nine of 10, losing only to Southern Cal., the Pacific Coasl Conference champions, 39-14. Purdue bounced around tho Big Nine cellar last fall but rallied strongly behind new Coach Stu Holeomb for a fine record or five wins and four defeats in strenuous competition. Southern Methodist, led by Doak Walker who returned from service laic last season, swept through the j Southwest Conference with a perfect record until tied by Texas Christian in its final game. days.
