A. A. U. Sanctions Big Campaign For Track and Field Athletes BY DANIEL J. FERRIS, Seeretsry-treaiurer, National Amateur Ath letic Union. Br tha Asaoclated Preaa. NEW YORK, January 10.—The second year of the Olympiad is usually quite dull as compared with the other three, but this year promises to be an exception to the rule. Everything, even at this early date, points to 1930 being an extremely active year, at least in track and field, swim ming, boxing, wrestling and gymnastics, the major sports on the Olympic pro- j gram over which the Amateur Athletic Union has jurisdiction in the United States. The initial Indoor track meet of the season last Saturday night in Brooklyn, with over 600 athletes participating, is Indicative of the Interest in track in an off-year. More than 50 large open in door track meets have been sanctioned by the A. A. U. in the Eastern half of the United States (the only part of the country where indoor track is practiced extensively;. These meets will furnish plenty of competition for the athletes desiring to run during the Winter months. Not even in Olympic years have there been more meets scheduled. In recent years the games committees In charge of Indoor meets have felt that foreign talent is necessary for the suc cessful conduct of their meets, and although the national officers of the A. A. U. do not share this belief, never theless they extended invitations to sev eral countries to send athletes here this Winter. The international athletic rule which forbids an athlete from receiving ex penses for a longer period than 21 days In a foreign country places foreign ath letes coming to the United States and our athletes going abroad, under con siderable handicap, as they are called Upon to compete in their first race a few days after stepping off the steamer. This rule is the answer to the declina tions thus far from the foreign countries Invited. The American athletes probably will benefit by the absence of foreign talent through being able to bask in the lime light and publicity which otherwise Would be showered on the foreign stars. Recognition by newspaper writers of the Improvement shown by an athlete very often furnishes the needed encourage , *nent to make him strive for greater heights on the ladder of athletic fame. Invitations are already in hand for track and field and swimming teams to tour Europe next Summer; also for a track team to go to South Africa. If COLLEGE BASKET BALL. Duke, 28; Maryland, 27.

COMMITTEE SCANS CLEAN-UP AT lOWA Status of 13 Athletes at Stake as Western Loop Body Investigates. By the Associated Press. lOWA CITY, lowa, January 10.— Hopeful at least for a partial vin dication of its efforts toward a wholesale athletic "house cleaning," University of lowa officials prepared to day to receive a committee of three delegated by the Western Conference to decide the eligibility of 13 lowa ath letes disqualified for participation in a loan fund maintained under the athletic administration of Paul E. Belting. The 13 athletes were declared ineligi ble shortly after the conference meeting last December, and the Hawkeye offi cials accompanied this act with a plea to the conference to send representa tives to see “if essential Justice has been done.” lowa officials maintain that the ath letes were innocent participants in a fund that had full approval of the ath letic administration. The conference trio, headed by Thomas E. French of Ohio State, was expected late today. French is the only one of the originally named committee who will be here. Prof. Ralph Aigler of Michigan is ill and Prof. O. F. Long of Northwestern has left for a Euro pean trip. French’s aides are Prof. W. J. Moenk haus of Indiana, chairman of the con ference faculty committee, and Prof. J. F. A. Pyre of Wisconsin. While the only formal action the committee may take will be to pass on the eligibility of the athletes in ques tion, its decision is expected to nave considerable bearing on what lowa's chances are for reinstatement. Should they declare the 13 athletes eligible, it will remove one of the chronic reasons for denying lowa reinstatement. It would also open the way for another appeal for reinstatement, although lowa officials deny having contemplated such action. An adverse decision for lowa would mean the loss of several valuable athletes anu probably one of the poor est seasons in Spring sports that the Hawkeyes have suffered in many years. the British empire meet is held at Ham ilton, Ontario, in August, it will be fol lowed by British empire-U. S. A. dual meets in Boston, New York and Chicago. With the various fixtures in which the school and college athletes engage, the district association championship meets, followed by the national champion ships at Pittsburgh, and the possibility of two or more dual meets between teams representing the district associa tions of the Amateur Athletic Union, the track and field athletes of the United States can look forward to a year full of activity. ottawaTeam ADDS TO LEAD AT HOCKEY NEW YORK, January 10 OF).—'The Montreal Maroons were rather slow in getting started for the current National Hockey League season, but now that they are on top, they appear almost as strong as Boston’s amazing Bruins. The Maroons took the top of the in ternational division by beating Les Canadiens. then last night made their margin of leadership a safe 3 points by downing the New York Rangers, 5 to 4. Another rising team in the interna tional group, Toronto’s Maple Leafs, gave a display of class last night by de feating Ottawa for the first time this year and breaking the tie for third place in the division. The score was 4 to 0. In the American group, it is sufficient to say Boston won. The Bruins now have 14 successive victories to their credit by virtue of last night’s 4-3 vic tory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Chicago, hot on the heels of the New York Rangers and Detroit, which is al most as close to Chicago, continued their rivalry with a 1-to-l tie. DISTRICT A. A. U.

Tomorrow night's game will be Alex andria’s first since the Christmas holi day lay-off. Charley Corbett, manager of the St. Mary's Celtics base ball team, has started to work on his Spring schedule and has arranged a contest with the Reading Keys of the International League for April 6 in this city. Corbett also plans to bring other minor league teams here. Knight's five trounced the Fort Humphreys Engineers of Fort Humph reys, Va., 43 to 24, here last night.

I hear it was Vic Hanson who doped out this defense for the fine out-of-bounds play that Princeton developed. Vic is one of the keenest athletes ever graduated from Syra cuse. That he knows how to use the old bean is evident when you look over this masterpiece of de fensive basket ball strategy. You see when there are three men in line facing their basket with the ball out-of-bounds at the end line of the court, a defense has to be on its toes or take the consequences—2 points by the opponents. Syracuse is on its toes with this defense for any sort of play that may be worked from this combina tion. As the opponents move, play ers B and C merely drop back to avoid being checked out of the play, each covering the man who happens to advance into bis zone of activity. This move permits A to follow No. 1 to the rear. B and C, in short, are not worried about the opponents getting a long pass in. That's O. K. But they are worried about one of these opponents receiving a short pass in near the basket. Their moves rearward practically prevent this and also put them in position to cover man-to-man in case of a long pass. (Copyrisht, 1950.) ’ PRINTERS WILL DISCUSS PROGRAM OP ATHLETICS J. C.

NORTH CAROLINA QUINT IS STRONG ON DEFENSE CHAPEL HILL, N. C., January 10.— Fine work in practice by Alexander and Choate makes it seem likely that the North Carolina quint, four times South ern champions since 1922, will have four stellar guards to bank on this season. Brown and Marpet, both regulars last year, were two of three letter men back at the opening of practice. Both were looking better than ever and now it seems that Coach Jim Ashmore will have a quartet of defensive men. The strength at guard is offset by a lack of veteran material at the forward berths. Neiman, Edwards, Slater, Cle land and Hutchinson are the leading ofioosive players. EXTRA GRID POINT SEEN ONWAY OUT Other Recodification Work Delays Coaches’ Vote for Abolition. BY LAWRENCE PERRY. THE foot ball rules committee, the writer has reason to believe, was strongly Impressed by that clause in the report of the rule change committee of the Coaches’ As sociation advocating the elimination of the point after touchdown. Facts ad duced by three coaches appointed to consider changes showed a lot of pains taking research, and as to the point after touchdown the findings were par ticularly convincing. It may be said that among the com mitteemen the play for point after touchdown is not generally liked and its days are numbered. Had it not been for the suggestion of the chairman of the rules committee, E. K. Hall, that any material changes in the rules this year would seriously affect the work of recodification now going forward, the chances are that the vote of the Coaches’ Association at its recent meet ing in New York would have been heavily in favor of ditching the play after touchdown. Rules in Type. The recodified rules are in type. The proofs will now be submitted to various non-members of the committee, whose interest in foot ball is active for criti cisms and suggestions. It is hoped that when the rulemakers hold their annual meeting at Absecon, N. J., next March, the text will receive final approval. Difficulties in the way of setting forth some of the rules with primer simplicity have been found, it is said. And this would naturally be the case in view of the necessity of referring to other rules. There has to be a certain legal devious ness about such rules if only to pre vent devious gridiron thinkers from devising plans to beat them. But even here there will be clarification in the way of subheadings and the like and l more lucid phraseology. Ball Coaches Banned. The Yale Athletic Association’s effort four years ago to have all athletic con tests with Harvard and Princeton played without the direction of coaches came a stop nearer to realisation when Yale and Harvard came to an agreement to ban coaches from the bench during ball games. Yale already has a similar agreement with Princeton. It won’t be long now—and, perhaps, some such ar rangement will be seriously proposed lor foot ball among these colleges.

OLD BUDDIES FACE IN COURT CONTEST Murphy, Purdue, and Chap man, Michigan, Performed on Same School Five. Br the Associated Press. CHICAGO, January 10.—A pair of Western Conference basket ball stars who played as teammates on the Marion, Ind., High School five will clash tomorrow night when Michigan invades Purdue for the feature of the evening. Charlie “Stretch” Murphy, Purdue’s towering center, will be opposed by Capt. Bob Chapman of Michigan, and a great personal struggle is anticipated. Murphy was center and Chapman a forward on the high school team. Purdue has not started to click as Lambert-coached teams usually do, but probably will be ready for the Wolver ines, who demonstrated considerable scoring power in defeating Minnesota, 33 to 17, last week. The Boilermakers will be stronger on manpower than they were against Butler and Montana State, both of which scored victories. Johnny Wocden, a versatile player, who was in jured in an automobile accident last Fall, has recovered and will be in shape to start against the>co-holders of last year’s conference title. With a victory over Wisconsin already marked down in the book, Northwestern was the choice to defeat Minnesota to morrow night at Minneapolis. North western’s regular guards, Bob Lockhart and Bob McCames, have missed most of this week’s practice, but the Wildcats’ all-around strength promises to be too much for the Gophers. Showing steady improvement, Chi cago was rated only slightly below In diana, which invades Bartlett Gym nasium tomorrow night. The Maroons have won three out of five of their pre season affairs, losing to Butler and Ohio Wesleyan, but have improved with each appearance. Indiana has not made a successful pre-season showing and might join the upset club of the Con ference. The Ohio State-Wisconsin game at Columbus promises to be a tight affair, with the Buckeyes rated about an even choice, with the advan tage of playing on their court. J. LEWIS, TRI-SPORT MAN, ENROLLED AT TECH HIGH Jakle Lewis, former Business High foot ball, base ball and basket ball star and more recently of Emerson Institute, has enrolled at Tech High, it was an nounced today. Lewis will not be eligible for basket ball this season, but will be for base ball and will be available for all sports next season. In foot ball Lewis is a back, in base ball a catcher and in basket ball a guard. DETROIT TO STAGE MEET AWARDED TO BALTIMORE NEW YORK, January 10 (/P).—The j scene of the 1930 national junior indoor track and field championships has been : shifted from Baltimore to Detroit, the i Amateur Athletic Union has an- ] nounced. The meeting will be held Sat- ] urday, February 22. The change was made because it was i found impossible to obtain a suitable i date at the Fifth Regiment Armory in i Baltimore.

U. gym. The C. U. year lings already this season have defeated Business, conqueror of Tech Tuesday, and Central and the McKinley quint would like nothing better than a victory over the young collegians. District schoolboy athletes were to figure in five basket ball games and a. swimming meet this afternoon. Business and Central and Eastern and Western basketers were to clash in public high school championship games in the Tech gym with the first mentioned teams opening the program at 3:30 o’clock. St. Alban's was to meet Woodward on the Central Y. M. C. A. floor, Landon was to trek to Charlotte Hall to engage the Charlotte Hall Military Academy five and Emerson was to journey to Annapolis to engage St. John's College Junior Varsity. Central’s swimmers were to entertain Baltimore Poly natators in the Central tank. It is plain today that Central has a nifty bunch of reserve basketers as the Blue and White second-stringers put up a fine battle before bowing to the Uni versity of Maryland Freshmen yester day at College Park in a 23-17 strug gle. It was the opening game of the campaign for Coach Jack Faber’s Old Line yearlings. It was through a third-quarter rally and ability to maintain the edge the remainder of the way that the Mary land youngsters gained the decision. At the end of the first quarter the Old Liners were ahead, 7 to 4, but Cen tral came back to achieve the edge at 13-11 at half time. Showing marked improvement on de fense, however, Maryland gained the lead early in the third quarter and held it. Central was able to score only two goals from scrimmage in the sec ond half.
