He points out that Holliday hall where the College of Mines plays its cage games, has a seating capacity of all of .650 and "was clearly designed with the idea of driving the customers away." Mott points out that "among those turned away were two Arizona fans who had driven all of the way from Phoenix to witness the game," This is confirmed by a phone call received by UA athletic officials who were quite powerless to aid in the situation. Also turned away were many New Mexicans who had raced down from Las Cruces at the conclusion of a four-day extension service meet at the Aggie college that day. Others who tried and failed included a large contingent of soldiers from Fort Bliss, "who promptly hastened to Juarez to heal their injured feelings." To make matters worse there was a parking jam that prevented many of those who had failed to gain admittance from getting their cars out of the maze. They were in the sad predicament of being neither able to get in or to go home--or perhaps to Juarez. Outbid Yanks For Georgia Star 3V EW YORK, Jan, 16. (JP)~ Charley Trippi, all-America grid star, told the Associated Press today he had decided to sign n contract with the Chicago Cardinals to play professional football in the National league. In an exclusive interview while en route to the offices of the New York Yankees, Trippi said he was declining an offer made by the Yankee organization to paly both football and baseball. The Chicago Cardinals have "made me the highest offer ever given a player in pro football," the Georgia ace from Pittston, Pa., disclosed. "It is much better than the Yankee offer." America bauK, was expected to announce (at 10 a. m. EST) today whether he would sign with the combined New York football and baseball Yankees or with the Chicago Cardinals of the National football league. The 24-year-old football and baseball star'from Pittston, Pa., spent nearly all day yesterday dickering with the rival bidders. After spending three hours closeted with Yankee officials, Trippi conferred with Charley Bidwell, owner of the Chicago Cardinals. The Yankee officials were President Larry MacPhail and Manager BucKy Harris of the baseball club and President Dan Topping and Coach Ray Flaherty of the All-America conference's football Yankees. The Yankees football and baseball combine wants Trippi as a "name" player for the turnstile battle with the National football A , -,-ir i i i . , f ,-, «-,, . m -1 i- leaguo's New York Giants. But Arch Ward, sports editor of the Chicago Tribune, digs. tho yanks arc bucking a foot- Latest reports indicate that 3,000 jammed their way into the New Mexico gym last Saturday at Albuquerque before the gates were closed and that some even hung from the rafters to see the Lobo-Wildcat fracas. It's amazing how the cage game has grown without the amount of ballyhoo that has been drummed over football. By JOE REICH1/BR NEW YORK, Jan. 16.

(IP)-- One dissenter to the National Collegiate Athletic association's new "purity" code is its outgoing president, Dr. Wilbur Smith of the -University of Wyoming. He wants to give the hard-working college athlete his just reward. He says "the most honest" conferences are those which give the greatest amount of aid to athletes. Dr. Smith, who came to Wyoming as student health director by way of Tulane and Louisiana State, made public today a statement pleading for frankness in dealing with aid to athletes. He said he read the statement before a closed session of the NCAA "purity" meeting last week in New York but was quietly ignored as the association adopted its code Restricting such aid and approving s c h e d u l e boycotts against nonconforming schools. No gales Plays Shootin' Game NOGALES, Ariz., Jan. 16. #)-Nogales high school's Indian tribe, which hasn't won a championship in many a moon and doesn't expect to in the immediate future, has developed a new crowd-pleasing brand of basketball -- 'built around a football fullback Dr. ± 1\J 1 1\* \JHLU-L ±111 Llf* i3\*±l\J\J 10 1 » , Smith's statement belit- | doesnt wln « ames ' -which, if to : it in with the following suggestion concerning the 1947 Rose Bowl game. He says: "This department suggests the Big Nine conference give more serious consideration next year to the selection of the team to represent it in the Rose Bowl. The tieup with the Coast conference is a desirable sports enterprise, but uneven competition will kill it. Perhaps the team that finishes last in the 1947 Big Nine should be chosen for the Rose Bowl. "The champion of the Coast conference might be able to give the tailender in the Middle West a pretty fair game. --Darned if we're not getting to write like those Los Angeles authors!" Did somebody howl "We want Arm-ee?" ball magnate in Bidwell who re gards Trippi as the greatest attraction in football today and declares "I'm going to get him-I've got to." The Yankees are reported to have offered Trippi a four-year contract at $00,000 to play football plus an undisclosed but reportedly fat sum for signing a basetaal contract. Bidwell also offered $60,000 for four years of play with the Cardinals plus an unrevealed bonus and freedom to play baseball anywhere Trippi pleases. Trippi also has received baseball propositions from, the Boston Red Sox, the Boston Braves, and Barney Armstrong, wrestling promoter who finds him- the Philadelphia Phillies, and from self without a place to promote the groan and grunt in- U du ^' d f nitely stfales l hat th f ;rr^ s not and that there is not another suitable building. and Birmingham of the New Mexico baseball career "although I love football more.

"Recent articles," he said, "would lead us to believe that athletic conditions in the colleges are worse than they were 50 years ago. This is not true. Many of ns can still recall the tramp athlete who migrated from year to year from one institution to another, the training table without regulation, recruiting without conscience and sub- rosa pay to athletes." Dr. Sinith declared development of the body must be emphasized as much as development of the mind, and he added: "Why not honor the .so-called physical side to some small degree at least? Do we who believe in and love athletics not have the courage to honor physical attainment? We do not hesitate to award scholarships for so-called noy the opposition no end. Stomped on by the smaller schools in the vicinity, broken up by the loss of two lettermen in the opening four games and Tucson's (mights 'Badgers lineup for the week end, it looked like curtains a few days ago. But out of sheer desperation was born a new style of play that has filled the tribe's gym lately with crowds reminiscent of bonanza days at Nogales high school. Two teams, Superior tomorrow and Douglas Saturday, are billed to sample the new Indian medicine this week. The formula is simple: Against Tucson the Apaches were instructed to shoot for the basket every- time they got their hand on the ball, whether they be in the blind corner, in the vicinity of the mid- court stripe or on their backs flat on the floor on ex-pro; eager Coach John Herrera's theory that there is no defense for such mad Tomorrow night's Border conference cage game between Fred Enke's University of Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State of Flagstaff will be preceded by a preliminary game between the Arizona "B' squad and Babe Hall's Ground Floor All-Stars at 6:45 p. m. Performing with the All-Stars will be Hall, Bob Human, Shanty Hogan, Bill Peterson, Boyd Morse Jim Negri, Wilmer Harper, Lowell McDonald, Clayton Miles, Bob Heartz, and Jack Anderson. The B squad, coached by Johnny Black, will lineup with Cecil Crouch and Jack Combs at forward Dale Edwards at center, and Ton Stokes and Murray Hammock a guard. They have won.foar games this season without a setback. Cata Una and Safford junior high teams will play between halves of both the prelim and varsity tilts. The varsity game, slated for 8:30 p. in., may set a new basketball attendance record for Tucson. Some difficulty may be ex. perienccd in parking as the lot just west of the "Bear Down" gymnasium is now utilized for temporary classrooms. The Cats will be seeking thei 12th victory in 13 starts and thei sixth straight Border conferenc victory. The Lumberjacks hav won eight out of nine games, bow ing only to Texas Tech for a con ference march of 4-1. The Wildcats are favored--slight ly--but every man on the tean looks for a torrid battle. If the can conquer Arizona, the Lumber jacks will move into a first-plac conference tie.

Los Angeles Loyola Bantam Ben, suffering from a sore shoulder, finished out of the money for the first time in more ,han 50 tries at the Crosby affair-but he figures to be on his stick or this one. As the unwieldy field of 152 amateurs and professionals teed off ,he name of Dick Metz was missing. He was the golfer involved in an altercation with tournament direc- ,or Fred Corcoran during the Del Monte play. He wired in that he would be unable to attend. By failing to take any action on the Metz-Corcoran feud at a meeting last night, the PGA players by-passed the scrap as a personal affair. Corcoran attended the meeting, but Metz failed to show. The classy field has all the makings of presenting some- of the finest golf ever seen on this regular stop of the winter golf caravan. Hogan's greatest competition is expected to come from a quartet composed of Harold "Jug" McSpaden, who burned up the course with a practice round of 35-33--68 yesterday; Lloyd Mangrum, national open champion, who is a! belated entry; George Fazio, leading money winner of the short 1947 season and co-winner of first! place at the Crosby tournament; | and Toney Penna, defending Rich-! mond champion, who takes a particular liking to this course. Among the other top perform- | ers are Jim Ferrier, former Australian champion now playing out of Chicago; Vic Ghezzi, former PGA champion; Denny . Shute, greying stylist from Akron, O.; Jimmy Demaret, colorful Houston, Tex., pro, who nearly always is among the top money-winners; and Bob Hamilton, 1!)44 PGA champion. The amateur contingent also is well represented with three members of the recently-named U.S. Walker cup team participating-Marvin "Bud" Ward, former national amateur champion; Frank Stranahan, the Toledo, O., muscleman; and Skee Riegel, Glendale, Calif. Today's play cuts the field to 100, and after tomorrow's competition, the low 60 will play the final two days.

The 21-year-old Ennis, though failing to come to terms with the Blue Jay management yesterday, did sign another contract. Cupid, in the person of Lenor Claar, 21, nabbed him as the pair obtained a marriage license at Philadelphia's city hall. WANTED!
