M. C. A. last night and hurled back the Swedes' challenge of their hold upon first place in the Junior Church basketball league. It whs the second time this season that the South church youngsters had de feated their closest rivals, and :t gave the winners a full two-game 4 j lead and a wonderful chance to rc 0 1 peat their 1J20-30 feat of winning 5 the league title. With six successive 15 j wins this year added on to the 10 '-' j they ran up last season, the lead ' ers now have only the lower teams '6i ! in the standing left to play and can r.nry, the championship by dovvn- i ing any three of them, w hile an 1 ! even break will assure them of a I tie and a play-off. 1 Both teams played superlative basketball last night, although 't ; was of a cautious type, as all play ers realised what was at stake. Th ! passing of both teams w as of a hign ' order, but the rival defenses were just as fine ari l scoring was held 'o a minimum. Stanley and Whoei'-r, ( diminutive South church forward's, iwere quite effectively smothered by ' the tall Lutheran guards. Ken Lindgren and Oscar Anderson, but : their floor work was pretty and it was Stanley who finally broke ; through for the winning points. I Cormier, with three sensational .baskets in the first half, was high scorer for both teams, and Flphick ; i and Me-rna cheeked the Lutheran : forwards as effectively as their ow n were stopped by the Lutherans, and . in addttion they added eiuht points to their team's score. Eddie Ander- son and Lindgren began to hook it. spectacular shots near the end and I almost Mrn"d the tide, but it was i just too late. All in all. it was a ; great game all the way. w ith both 1 teams working carefully but de termined!y for the big prize that i went to the winner. Cormier's follow up shot opened the game, Flphick made a free shot 'good, and Cormier sank a try from , mid-floor to give the winners a 5-0 lead at the quarter. Stanley's foul on a technical and a field goal by ' Mera made it S-0 before the Swedes 'counted on a basket by Carleton An-dei-son. This se.-ond period w:.s ' r- eniy fought, and the half ended ' " ith the Smith Church snll holding its five-point lead at lii-7. ! The Swedes cut. a point oif tlie ' margin during the third quarter.

CROP IN YEARS - - TILDEN RETIRES FROMNET GAME Big Bill Hears Call ol the Movie aod Has Answered ! New York. Pec. 31 Big Bill Tilden finally has come to the end of the trail of amateur tennis. The in.Oiies have called and Big Bill has answered. A dominant figure in world ten nis for more than a decade, Tilden informed the United States Lawn j Tennis association yesterday that no was retiring from amateur compe tition to accept a contract with tile Metro-Goldwyn -Mayer corporation. i The contract calls for a series of ! short tiltns on tennis subjects -with ! the Philadelphia veteran in the ! leading role. Since the films are to ; be devoted to tennis. Big Bill auto matically is disqualified from corn ' peting under the rules governing ' aniat. urs. j Tilden's decision closely parallels la. slunk. r one reached recently by !

FIGOMEY Ordered to Agree to Terms Within Next Seven Days New York. Dec. 31 iPi The Ne w York state athletic commission seems to have paved the way for the; staging of a heavyweight champion ship fight in Chicago. Whether or not that proves to be the case de pends on Max Schmeling, the title holder, and his manager, Joe Jacobs. The commission yesterday ordered Schmeling, through Jacobs, to agree within seven days, to defend his title against Jack Sharkey here in June or else face forfeiture of the cham pionship in this state. The next move is strictly up to Schmeling and his manager. They may decide to ignore the commis sion edict and accept an offer of $ 5 11 0 . i "J 0 for a championship match at Chicago with W. L. (Young) Stribling in the challenging roic. More than a few boxing critics be lieve Stribling has a better right ID a crack at the title than Sharkey. The commission's action, however, was highly consistent if nothing else. The boxing solons have maintained from the start that Schmeling j should abide by his promise to meet ! Sharkey in a return bout for the j title. Schnieling's promise was made after he had won heavyweight rec- ognition by winning on a foul from i Sharkey in a highly unsatisfactory bout here last summer. Dill Carey, president of Madison Scmarc Garden, met with a r buff when he asked for approval for a bout between Sharkey and Stribling at Miami, I-'la., this winter. The commission frowned on this despite the tact that Sharkey himself would like to make at least one start lie fore he takes another shot at the title. I'romoters and critics alike have insisted that a Sharkcy-Schmcling bout is foredoomed to financial fail ure unless one or the other, in the meantime, can do something to stir up public interest.

Dec. 31 W) The Bos ton Bruins seem to be out after all of the National Hockey League rec ords they did not break in their amazing progress through Un American division last season. Not only have they taken first place i again, but they have been hitting ! the high spots in scoring as tin y 1 made their lead safe. I By trouncing the Ottawa Senators I by a 7 to S score, the Bruins piled up a total ot I . goals in two games against the league's tail-end'-rs an I increased their lead over the idle Chicago Blackhawks to tour points. The two gamc3 between the intra city rivals of the league, the Ameri cans and Hangers in New York and the Canadiens and Maroons in Mon treal resulted in ties.

FOOTBALL FACES A SERIOUS EVIL Federal Office of Education Fears Amateur Standing Loss Washington. Dec. 31 Loss of amateur standing today was named by the federal office of education a "most serious evil" confronting in tercollegiate football. An increasing tendency "to de velop professional standards for players" with "great emphasis upon -winning," was noted in a report outlining athletic problems found in the country's 6D land grant col leges, which were studied for three years in a general education survey. These colleges, which rcpoitel receipts of hundreds of thousands of dollars annually from lootba'l games, were urged to stop relying on athletics for support and main tenance of their health programs. The office of education recom mended the health work be financed the same as any other educational department, and urged each institu tion to make a "thorough and frank study of these situations with a franker lacing of their responsibili ties toward their student bodies. " Passing of control of athletic ac tivities from the students to admin istrative officials was cited in the i-ennrt. which dealt primarily with problems arising from football rn- thusiasm among the shidentj. alumni and administrative authori ties. Among the land giant colleges high in the football world are tin Universities of Illinois and Cali fornia, Ohio State, Cornell. Minne sota. Purdue. Maryland, Texas Agricultrual and Mechanical, and the Agricultural College of Utah. "One of tliese," the report said, "reported receipts of approximate ly $500,000 annually from footba'.l games. Others' receipts ranged from J.'iOO.noi to $410,000 annually, bringing football into the field of big business," which the survey considered one of the primary rea sons for the change l control. Forty-one of the institutions re ported athletics under control of n ! college board. In seven students were ! represented. Control remaine-d with the students in lour west coast in stitutions. "Intercollegiate football," the ! survey said, "suffers from the most I serious evil of loss of amateur standing. "Students tend to v ereniphasize athletics. Student migr..tions to great out-of-town games rau.se the mofl worry to the administration." The report noted also overempha sis on football in intercollegiate publications and an "exploiting of individuals, giving them the big bead xxx making them disregard their college work." It related also that 11 schools ad mitted recruiting seniors from high schools for freshmen footba'l squad.-, bui all protested gnoranc; sub-i-bing of i. layers, l-laeu de I nie.i list, ii. e nf lou .i funds fo - athletes only.
