Two Great Quints Invade This Week: Eastern Looking to Lexington Laurels
- ♦: TILT IS HIGH SPOT __ Battle Friday — Richmond U., Also Undefeated, Plays Terps Saturday. BY H. C. BYRD. HAT would seem to be the summum cum lauda of | Intercollegiate basket ball play should be seen here this week in the visits of two unde feated quints—New York University and University of Richmond. The former meets Georgetown Friday night on the Tech High floor and the latter Maryland at College Park Sat urday night. New York University has a remark able record, in that it has not lost a game in two years. It was undefeated j last season, and so far this Winter no other quint has proved its match. It j has won 27 straight games. Uni- j versity of Kentucky, which it beat by ' only a single point, came nearest to upsetting the Violets. It would seem I that Georgetown has little chance to win from such a team, but the play ought to be of great interest just the same. Richmond probably is not as good i as the New' Yorkers, but if compari sons count for much there are not many better teams in the South. In fact, one critic has made the state ment that he would back the Spiders against any other five they may face In this section. Not the least doubt exists that they are strong and should play brilliantly. They defeated Mary land easily last year at College Park and expect to turn the trick again. Maryland, though, has a better out lookfor victory over the Richmonders than Georgetown over N. Y. U. The star of the Richmond team is Roger Leverton, a former Central High School athlete. He was the king pin of the game last season against Mary land and is expected to occupy the same position again. Not only is Leverton a great basket ball player, but he also is the best performer for Richmond in foot ball, track and base ball. He is one of the few athletes who will win letters this year in four sports. As an aftermath of the basket ball game with Richmond, Maryland will have a dual boxing meet with Penn State. In view of the fact that Penn State has an exceptionally good team, the boxing match may be the more interesting of the two competitions. Certainly the Old Liners have not faced as tough opposition for a long while as they will stack up against in the double bill this week-end. C. U. in Action Tonight. Catholic university, which showed to such good advantage in beating Davis-Elkins last Thursday, will stack up against a good Loyola of Baltimore quint to night at Brookland. Play will start at 8:15. It will be the twenty-seventh meet ing of the teams in a series begun in 1911, with the Cards having won 16 of the contests. Earlier in the season the Cards beat the Baltimoreans in the Monumental City. 39 to 19, but expects no such easy picking tonight. The game marks the third from the last appearance of the C. U. team on its home court. Two games remain after tonight's tilt, the important battle with Maryland February 12 and the finale with St. Thomas Febru ary 20. G. IV. Plays Tomorrow. George Washington is to en tertain Wake Forest in basket ball here tomorrow night, the game being scheduled for the G. W. gymnasium. The local five ought to pull out another victory. George Washington is good enough, when at its best, to whip almost any oppo nent. Catholic University's boxing team meets Virginia Military Institute this week and ought to come out on top. The Cadets are not as strong in the ring this year as they had hoped and expected to be. The Brooklanders dropped a match last week to Duke, but the Blue Devils are rated as one of the two or three greatest ring 6quads in the South. Terps Have Hard Week. MARYLAND’S relay team had a fine chance to win at New York last week, but on the last relay dropped the baton and was thus thrown out of the race. It led at the end of the third relay against New York U„ Yale and Penn and was running in second place when the stick popped out of Coleman Headley’s hand. That settled the event, as far as the Old Liners were concerned. Maryland meets the same teams again in the New York A. C. games on February 16. One of the greatest bouts between small boxers ever held in intercol legiate ranks probably would take place if Wills of Richmond and Hahn of Virginia were brought together. The Richmond fighters, though, do not meet the Cavaliers. Wills has won all his bouts this year and last, while Hahn has lost only one in three years. Coach johnny wilson is doing about the best job with the Navy basket ball team that he has ever done since he assumed the varsity coaching role. Contrary to some opinions, Wilson does not have a wealth of material. He has just two exceptionally good men, the others being just good average college play ers. He has used these two men. though, with excellent judgment and preparation, and well demonstrated his sound coaching policy. The team’s victory over Pitt last Saturday was a great accomplishment. Track athletics certainly hold a good deal of interest in and around New York. It was impossible to buy seats for the mtet last week at Mad ison Square Garden and the only tickets available at any time for two days before the meet were in the hands of scalpers at double price. --• AGGIE GIRLS CHALLENGE.

J., February 5.— Kansas, which gave Glenn Cunningham to the track world, can begin to sing the praises of young Elton Brown of the Pittsburg (Kansas) Teachers’ College and the Kansas City A. C. Winner of the national junior 800 meter championship last year. Brown now is engaged in taking first places in indoor half-mile races. He started off brilliantly by winning the 880 yard special in the Millrose games in Madison Square Garden Saturday night and repeated in the half-mile special of the annual Seton Hall Col lege games here last night. Sets Track Record. HIS time on the excellent Garden track was 1 minute 57.7 seconds. He cut that down to 1:56 4-5 last night over the flat, slippery boards of the 113th Regiment Armory. The time was a record for the treacherous armory track and the mark he shattered was that of 1:57 2-5 set last year by Cunningham himself. Eric Ny, Sweden's mile champion, helped Brown along to his record making time by setting the pace ' through most of the run. Brown passing the wavering Ny two laps from the finsh. Joe McCluskey. one-time Fordham star and many-time champion, won the 2-mile run in 9:2023 to break the 18-year-old mark of 9:31 made by Mike Devaney of the Millrose A. A.

Rates Meredith Racing King Dorsey, Penn Teammate, Now in Congress, Sure Ted Could Have Beaten Modern Stars. BY DILLON GRAHAM. Associated Press Sports Writer. ALTHOUGH modern runners have bettered Ted Mere dith’s racing records. Repre sentative Frank Dorsey of Pennsylvania believes Meredith could have beaten them all. Dorsey’s opinion is of value, for he trailed Meredith by only a few yards in 1916, when Ted set a half mile time of 1 minute, 52.1 seconds. “Ted was a powerful runner and had a tremendous drive at the finish,” says Dorsey, captain of the 1916 Pennsylvania track team. "I doubt if any of the present day runners could have outrun him." Meredith had no intention of going for a record that day, Dorsey recalled. “He thought it too windy, but we ran the first quarter-mile so fast, Tad decided to try for the new time, and made it.” he says. “It was a close finish, with Wlnd nagle of Cornell second. I was third.” Dorsey ran the quarter in 49.2 seconds, the half-mile in 1 minute 54.2 seconds and was a member of four American championship relay teams during 1916 and 1917. TherPhiladelphia legislator still retains his interest in track and seldom misses the annual Penn relays in his home city. HAND BALL PLAY STABTS.

Hr CJS’erk^ FROM THE PRESS BOX Lary, Nat Shortstop, Nattiest Dresser In Base Ball, Declares Sartorial Prof. _BY JOHN LARDNER__ NEW YORK. February 5 — i Prof. William Taub. who makes a specialty of clothing the male athlete in natty coats, vests, pants and accessories, has been thinking quite a bit of late. Usually the professor thinks in short spurts, about three a week, but this time he has been thinking consecu tively for several hours at a stretch. ■ "It seems to me,” said the rumina tive cloak-and-suiter, "that the time is about ripe for my list of the 10 best-dressed athletes of 1934. "They make a list of the 10 best dressed women every year, and the 10 best-dressed men. Why not 10 athletes?” "Why not?” said your correspond ent. producing pencil and paper. "Mind you.” continued Prof. Taub. “my list is not comprehensive. There may be athletes as dapper as the new mown hay whom I have never seen. There may be some I am forgetting. But I know meat of the well-dressed athletes in this country, and I will do my best ” Compiles List in Trance. SO SAYING, the noted gents’ out fitter went into a species of trance. He summoned up visions of sartorial splendor—wrestlers in ice cream suits, fighters in by-swing jackets, ball players in form-fitting evening togs, golf pros In brilliant sweaters. Pretty soon he snapped out j of it and named the first 10, as follows: Jack Dempsey. Max Baer. Lyn Lary. Jim Londos. Leo Durocher. Jimmy McLarnin. Everett Marshall. Maxie Rosenbloom. Ed Don George. Babe Ruth. "There are lots of others I might mention,” said Prof. Taub. "Gene Tunney, for ultra-conservatism: Kid Chocolate, for spectacular effects: Bill Terry and Barney Ross, for neatness, and so on. But the list I got there is pretty good, pretty representative. "Dempsey is up there on top, of course. I gave him a loving cup as the best dressed sportsman of the year. He always looks good Dei.-.psey, always up to the minute. "Baer is a great spectacular dresser that knows more about clcthes, the technique and so on, than any of them. He's a pioneer and a neavy buyer. "Lary is just about the best dressed of the ball players I know. A very smooth fellow. "Londos is a wonderful dresser, con sidering how hard he is to fit. He takes a 46 or a 48 chest and he’s stocky all the way down. He dresses conservative, always with two-button, notch lapel jackets. 20 Years Ago IN THE STAR. WASHINGTON fans need not be unduly disturbed, it is said. whether Howard Ehmke, California pitching re cruit, listed to report to the Na tionals in the Spring, joins Clark Griffith’s team or the Federal League, as reports say he might. It is stated he has been not so impressive. Manager Bill Donovan of the New York Yankees has announced the purchase of Outfielder Hugh High and First Baseman Wally Pipp from Detroit. Each player cost about $5,000. Stuffy Mclnnis is to continue at first base for the Philadelphia Athletics. Larry Lajoie will re place the traded Eddie Collins at second. Willie Ritchie, former world lightweight boxing champion, has been matched to meet Freddy Welsh, present lightweight titlist, at Madison Square Garden, New York, on March 11. George Washington's basket ball team defeated the Fordham quint last night. Murray and Almon, focwarda, ataraadfoc ttw vtnaan. Deans at Foot of Class. "T EO DUROCHER ranks along 1 j with Lary among the ball play ers. He has a hard time keep ing his clothes in good shape, with those Dean boys around. You might say that the Deans are the worst dressed athletes of the year, but that doesn't worry them. ‘‘McLarnin is a real dresser, very dapper, and he buys more clothes than any of them except Baer. ''Everett Marshall, he doesn't look like a wrestler when he's dressed up. He looks more like a good smart busi ness man or something. Same with Don George. "Maxie Rosenbloom always looks good. He knows how to dress, and he gives his clothes plenty of exercise. “Ruth is a problem, but. all in all, he’s a real good dresser. Of course, he wears those caps a lot. But the whole effect is expensive and good.” Prof. Taub was at some pains to point out that the lucky dudes men tioned above are not all customers of his. "I understand that the Paris dress makers. when they pick the 10 best dressed women, pick out the best cus tomers—the ones that spend the most money.” he said. "That's shocking. Some of the athletes I mentioned were never even inside my shop.” "And who.” asked your correspond ent, “are the worst-dressed athletes of the year, outside of the Dean boys?” "Hockey players." said the learned goods merchant. "Hockey players. I won't pick and choose among 'em. As a group they lead the field.” (CoDyright 10.'IS. by North American Newspaper Alliance. Inc.) G.

Blowing a 20-to-2 lead. West Vir ginia barely managed to stave off the determined Colonials last night at Morgantown to win a 43-41 verdict. The game was the first of three which George Washington will play on the road this week. During the first 10 minutes of last night’s tilt, the Mountaineers ap peared on their W-ay to a runaway, but after taking a 20-2 lead. Coach Sleepy Glenn inserted his substitutes and George Washington quickly gained its stride and narrowed the margin to 25-21 at the half. West Virginia boosted the lead to 31-24 early in the second half, but the Colonials came back twice to within a point of the eventual win ners. once at 32-33 and again at 37-38. At this point, however. Cole bank dropped in two field goals in i succession and Phares contributed a foul to enable the Glenn-coached team to win out.

EASTERN HIGH basketers, who figured to down Roosevelt this afternoon and thereby clinch the public high school crown for the second straight season, are planning to defend their championship in the annual Washington and Lee tourney at Lexington early next month. And if the Lincoln Parkers do enter the Lexington affair boasting the District of Columbia crown, they will not have to contend with opposition they previously disposed of in public high competition. Under a high school rule here, effective for the first time this season, when the District of Columbia championship team enters any tourney its series rivals are barred from participation in that event. This will prevent a refighting of public high battles that have once been settled. Last year Eastern, which won the public high title, and Central each defeated the other once in the championship series, and when they clashed in the Washington and Lee tourney there was much excite ment in view of the fact it was a rubber game. Had Central won, Eastern's triumph in the series un questionably would have lo6t much of its luster. School authorities passed the new rule because they feel the team win ning the championship should not be called upon to risk the losing of any prestige achieved in the District of Columbia series. Little Hoyas in Trim. Georgetown prep is set for a strong stand against its time honored foe. Gonzaga, tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 o’clock, at Garrett Park, in a Private School Basket Ball League game. The Purple lowered the Prep some time ago. 37-21, but the latter has been improving fast and believes it has a real chance to even scores with the I Streeters.
