Associated Press Sports Writer. AKE PLACID. N. Y.. February 13 —The 1932 Winter Olym pic games came officially to an end this evening with Canada winning a bitter final day fight for the hockey cham pionship, two Finns unexpectedly piling home through a blizzard to take first and second places in the 50-kilometer cross-country ski marathon and the United States leading all in the unof ficial total score with 83 points, points. It took the flashy Canadians, enter ing the final contest without a defeat in the round-robin series of 12 games with the United States. Germany and Poland, three full overtime periods to stave off the bid of the United States college and club stars, finishing in a 2-2 tie. A crowd of 5.000 jammed every bit of available space in the Olvmpic indoor arena. The tie was all Canada needed to gain the third straight Olympic hockey title with 11 points, two more than the United States gathered in beating all but Canada. In the fastest game of the series today, just as in the open ing match February 4, the Canadians came from behind to tie just before the end of the regulation game. But this time instead of going out to score the winning goal in the overtime, the Canadians were content to hold the aggressive Americans scoreless through the 30 minutes of extra play. Fnnish Skiers Ama|. The biggest surprise of the closing day came in the 50-kilometer ski marathon. a backbreaking grind through the thick falling snow that overnight replaced the Springlike, temperatures of yesterday and forced postponement of the four-man bob sled championship until tomorrow. To night the deadly slide on Mount Van Hovenberg again was in fine condition, with a three-inch layer of snow on a solid ice base, fast as it has ever been, for the assault of the daredevils of five nations tomorrow. The amazing Finns were \eli Saari nen who took first place and the Olympic title from Sven Uttertrom of Sweden, defending champion, and Vatno Liikkanen. who followed his countryman across the finish line 20 seconds behind, after dogging the rear tips of his skis through the exhausting 31-mile grind.

With Winter back in championship form todav. enough snow falling and enough cold to take care of another full set of Olympics, the 25,000 visitors to Lake Placid sought to stay Indoors for their competition and nearly broke down the indoor arena in an effort to see Canada and the United States tangle in a desperate battle. . All the color and vividness of Winter gport outfits were in evidence again as the weather man. relenting, threw every blustery wintery effect into the picture iH a final display of might. Tomorrow at midnight the final time allowed for postponement expires and it seemed entirely likely that there would be no further difficulty in staging the four-man bob sled championship, al ready three times deferred. • i In" a way it was an even more fitting way of ending the games than indoors in the arena today and outdoors on the ski trails, miles from the sight of visiting eyes. For days the bobsleds, careening down the side of Mount Van Hoevenberg, in an ice chute that bends and curves through rocks and trees, have been the lure that held the incoming throngs in town, de spite unseasonable rain and warmth. Already six Germans have crashed on the slide, three of them still lying in the local hospital. Gets Full Spotlight.

The Old Liners thus registered their twelfth consecutive win. a streak ^ started after dropping the first two games of the season. It was the sev enth Southern Conference victory for Maryland, defending champion, in as many engagements. The 1931 conference title holders undoubtedly flashed their best form since winning the crown last Winter. At times Maryland's passing, dribbling and basket-sniping was almost perfec tion and left the crowd, well accus tomed to fine Old Line exhibitions, breathless and astonished. Bill Thomas. Virginia guard, scored on the first shot of the game after 15 seconds on a long looper. but Bucky Buscher. who displayed his best form in Maryland toggery last night, soon tied the count with a two-pointer under the basket. Sid Young again placed the Cavaliers in front at 4—2 on a fine running toss. Vincent and Ronkin, however, tied the score at 4-all on foul tosses. The Old Liners went on a scoring rampage to break the deadlock and after 10 minutes were in the van. never to be headed, at 17 to 4 Buscher and Berger led the attack during this pe riod. Virginia rallied near the close of the half to cut Maryland's advantage to 19 to 14 at the intermission. Rufus Vincent. Maryland's big and clever center, took the lead in the sec- j ond-half rush in running up the Old ; Liners' total. He scored 13 of the 27 points registered.

THE CREAM OF THE CROP. —By TOM DOERER PArn Ey V J \ KANE - f . £AST£.R./sl * ^ ' f^ORWAliO •t I V/averlv Wheeler - Tech , forward E.VERETT RuS5-ELL - TECH.“ Guard AMD CAPTAIrt. * JL fcfcKNlE LIES’-;jf eastern, center "i _ * ON THE SIDE LINES With the Sports Editor -By DENMAN THOMPSON IT would seem that in the recent purchase from the Bloomington Three-I League club of Catcher Howard Maple the Nationals have obtained considerably more of an athlete than was suspected. Maple, we are informed by Earl Goodwin and Dick O'Connell, both products of the Pacific Coast, but now residents of the Capital, is the self same chap who created such a ■ furore in foot ball as a member of the Oregon State College team Just a few years ago. Anent the rookie receiver, Good win, now secretary to Representative Charles H. Martin of Oregon. wTites: "If I recall this Is none other than the famous Howard Maples of Oregon State College, Corvallis, Oreg. A couple of years ago, if you remember, O. S. C. came East and played the N. Y. U Violets in New York. The Oregon ians trimmed the Violets out of a national foot ball title and it was Quarterback Maples who got the big cheer from the Eastern critics. "A teammate, gridiron, of Maple was Wes Schulmerich, now with the Boston National League club. They played together at O. S. C. for a couple of years at least. Wes was a sensational plunging fullback. Ma ples, as was Schulmerich, was a star base ball player at O. S. C. and after college went to the Three-I League. It seems to me Maples played a year of pro foot ball, but gave it up in preference to base ball as a career. He's a powerfully built fellow." Dick O'Connell, now a l3w student and coach of boxing at Columbus University here, whose leather push ing pupils met the Springfield Col lege team last night, has vivid im pressions of Maple's foot ball prowess, gained through playing against him while a member of Riggs College eleven of California, and asserts that Maple then was an even better base ball plaver than a gridironer. At the time Maple was purchased President Griffith admitted he knew little about him, save that he now is connected in some capacity with Willamette University at Salem, Oreg., was "about 21 years old,” and had only a year's professional sea soning. But unless Maple is twins it appears GrifT got a bum steer re garding the recruit's age as well as experience, for he already has had one big league inspection, with the Chicago White Sox in 1929, after coming out of Oregon State. Consistent in His Hitting. Maple promptly was shifted to Springfield of the Three-I League, where he hit .313 in 65 games, and then was shifted to Bloomington of the same circuit. There he batted .290 in 104 games in 1930 and last season achieved .288 in 99 games, while ranking second among the catchers of the circuit in fielding with a percentage of .989. Maple was highly recommended last season, but Griff shied at the price asked for him. Then when Bloomington was dropped from the Three-I League to make it a six club circuit, the club was left with a bunch of players who wondered where they could get jobs. Faced with the necessity of disposing of its reservists or having them declared free agents, Bloomington reduced its demands and the sale to Washington followed. With Roy Spencer the only catcher of established ability now on the Washington raster. Maple is con fronted with an excellent opportunity of winning the job of understudy in competition with Clif Bolton. The fact that he has had three years of steady work, even though with a loop of low classification, should further his cause, and his college activities won't hurt any, although varsity fame is no guarantee of suc cess in big league base ball, as any number of campus heroes have found out. Kocsis Must Be Good. ACCORDING to Jimmie Bronson, veteran boxfight manager and promoter, fight fans who trek to Portner's for the Alexandria Day Nursery show Tuesday night wrill see a unique character in his boy. Antol Kocsis. who mixes with Billy Landers in the feature go. "Kocsis is an unusual figure, as fistic luminaries go." asserts Bron son. "Was one of Europe's most celebrated soccer players and weighs but 116. He grabbed great gobs of glory, and cups and medals, too, in continental marathons and was an outstanding figure on track and field. As an amateur. Tonv punched his way to more than 200 fistic victories and still is one of the most famous of European figure skating cham pions.” After citing that Kocsis is the only fighter ever to have been nationally honored for a fistic feat, having been personally decorated by the regent of Hungary for punching his way to the flyweight championship in the Olympics at Amsterdam in 1928. Bronson adds: “And. strange to relate, he can fight, too. He Is without question the most colorful little fellow since Villa's time. Rough and tough, he Is the busiest little Individual I've ever seen in action.” We gather from this that Bron son. strange as It may seem, thinks prettv well of the scrapper he is steering. Maybe Landers ought to be tipped off. -• CARDS SIGN HAINES Veteran Hurler to Do Preliminary Training at Hot Springs. ST. LOUIS, February 13 (JP).—Jess Haines, veteran on the St. Louis Car dinals’ pitching staff, has signed a one year contract and will depart soon for a week of preliminary training at Hot Springs. Ark., it was announced here today. No details of the contract were announced.

LOS ANGELES. February 13 (JP).— A1 Shealy, who came to the Los Angeles Base Ball Club from the Chicago Cubs last Spring, has been sold to Nashville cf the Southern Association. Shealy had an indifferent year with the Angels, pitching the club to four victories against eight defeats. CARROL i_ SHORE. - Business - flUARO.... RECORD G. W. SCORE GIVES 11 IN ROW Baltimore U. Defeated, 72-21, Burgess Leading Attack With 24 Points. — George Washingtons un deafted basket ball team ran It* string of victories to 11 last night by swamping Balti more University on the Colonial court and at the same time hung up a sea son’s record score for Washington colleges. The count was 72 to 21. A steady stream of Colonial points was accelerated from time to time by the brilliant shooting of Forrest Burgess, key man of the attack through most of the game, who scored seven field goals and gathered 10 points in 13 shots from the foul line. Wick Parrack, his running mate at forward, was shaken up severely In a first-half spill and withheld from the second, but was the second high-polnt getter, with 12. tsesiaes playing a nrsi-raw game at guard, Zahn found the cords for five field goals. Although the game was In the bag from the start, the Colonials main tained a lively pace all the way and few scoring opportunities were pre sented the visitors, who nevertheless kept trying. They made many desperate heaves from near midcourt. Occasionally Glassman and Kelly man aged to elude the close-guarding Colonials, and Glassman snaked in four double-deckers and his fellow forward three. McCormick, with one, was the only other Baltimorean to score from the field. A capacity gallery was without a thrill, but It got a large laugh when Referee Jack Simpson was bumped sprawling in a chaotic skirmish. George Washington's clean slate will be threatened tomorrow night when it meets Duquesne In Pittsburgh Feb ruary 26 they will be up against it again in a battle with St. John’s In Brooklyn.
