Terps Meet Unbeaten Teams Tonight : International Polo Trophy Languishes
Streak in Danger of Being
Ended—Richmond U. Also
Great Court Foe.
NOT even extended in their first
three starts, University of
Maryland's undefeated boxers
undergo their first acid ring
test of the season tonight at the
Ritchie Coliseum when Penn State's
powerful Nittany Lions, also unbeaten,
invade to headline a two-ring sports
circus that is likely to surpass any
previous program to date for thrills.
In the other half of the act still
another undefeated combination. Uni
versity of Richmond's basket ball
quint, will seek its twelfth straight
victory of the campaign when Mary
land's five is encountered at 8 o'clock.
Immediately following the court tus
sle, Maryland's portable boxing ring
will be wheeled onto the floor and
the beak-nudging will begin.
Washington's only other collegiate
attraction tonight will find Columbus
University's new boxing team enter
taining Villanova at 8:15 o'clock in
the Tech High School Gymnasium.
Columbus, which easily defeated Mas
sachusetts Institute of Technology last
week, will be seeking its second win
In as many starts.
Catholic University's boxing team
will be the only local "road" team.
The Cards will meet Virginia Military
in the Cadets' ring.
WITH the exception of the forth
coming meet with Virginia,
tonight's boxing meet with
Fenn State is likely to be the stiffest
of the year lor Maryland's glove jab
bers. The Lions will present three
aces who are expected to gain as many
points in Izzy Richter, 1933 National
A. A. U. heavyweight champion; Capt.
Mike Zeleznock, 125-pound intercol
legiate champion, and Francis Mc
Andrews, who has beaten out Russell
Griswell, collegiate title holder, for
the 115-pound assignment.
McAndrews will oppose the unbeaten
Jimmy Young, Zeleznock will face
either Bill Waller or Tom Birming
ham and Richter will meet Carl Stal
Coach Jack Harmony will present a
new rlngster in the 155-pound class in
Mike Lombardo, who will take over
the assignment held by Lyman Mc
Aboy, who will step up to the 165
pound division. McAboy is one of
five unbeaten Maryland scrappers, the
others being Young, Ivan Nedomatsky,
Walter Webb and Stewart McCaw.
NYTHING less than the form
showed by Maryland's basket
ball team while trouncing Vir
ginia last Saturday is likely to result
in a whipping in the court game to
night, judging from the record of
the invading Richmond Spiders.
Led by Capt. Roger (Bob) Leverton,
a former Central High boy, who also
is an outstanding Richmond foot ball,
base ball and track man, the Spiders
have won 11 straight games. Last
night they swamped the respected
William and Mary quint, 46 to 20.
Richmond has averaged better than
46 points a game this season, while
holding its rivals to an average
of 23. No team has come closer than
nine points to the Spiders.
Maryland's team may have to worry
along with Bill Guckeyson, who has
been nursing a strained ligament in
his side. If Guckeyson is unable to
play, his guard post probably will be
taken over by Charley Keller. A1
Waters and Bernie Buscher will be at
the forwards, Vic Willis will jump
center and Bill Andorka will take care
of the other guard job. Tickets for
the twin bill are priced at $1.
DESPITE their 7 y2 to % victory
over M. I. T. last week, Colum
bus' boxers are certain to have
their hands full tonight against
Villanova, touted as one of the best
teams in the Pennsylvania sector. If
anything, the Wildcats will reign

Has Not Challenged Since
1930—U. S. Dominant
in High-Goal List.
Associated Press SporU Editor.
NEW YORK, February 9—The
International Challenge Cup,
which is to polo what the
America's Cup Is to yacht
racing and even more exclusive, be
cause it is limited to competition be
tween the United States and England,
seems in a fair way to become one of
the forgotten trophies of sport.
The aristocratic Hurlingham Club,
Britain's ruling power in polo, hasn't
challenged since 1930 and if it could
afford to do so within the next year
or two, which is unlikely, it would
have a hard time mustering sufficient
talent to give America even a brisk
Since the turn of the century, the
longest lapse in British-American polo
rivalry has been seven years. The
last hiatus of this length was due to
the World War, following which the
cup was in competition at three-year
intervals. America was victorious
four times in succession. The depres
sion followed a steadily widening gap
in playing prowess between the two
countries, and England no doubt, is
just as well satisfied now to let mat
ters rest for the time being or until
such time as the old country can rally
as she has done in tennis and golf, to
challenge America's supremacy on
horseback. It costs at least $250,000
to organize and equip an international
polo squad, for cup competition.
V. S. Gaining in Talent.
IN contrast with the rising wealth of
young talent in this country, Eng
land's high-goal polo ranks have
slumped to a point where the British
would have difficulty putting together
a 30-goal combination. Either the
East or West team, as lined up for
our national championship matches
during the past two years, would out
class anything England could send
into action. The only polo-playing
country which has challenged Ameri
can leadership seriously in the past
dozen years, is the Argentine, but no
country in the world now has as many
high-goal players as the U. S A
The 1935 ranking list of the United
States Polo Association shows nine
players ratec: at eight goals or belter,
whereas the latest Hurlingham Club
roster reveals six, of which only two—
Capt. H. P. Guinness and the veteran
wing commander, P. K. Wise—are
homebreds. Two others are Indian
potentates, who could not compete
for England in the international cup
play. The remaining pair, Lewis
Lacey and Capt. "Pat" Roark. are
survivors of British teams which were
badly beaten at Meadow Brook In
1927 and 1P30.
The world's "top 15" lr. polo handi
cap ratings gives an idea of American
dominance in the high-goal field:

burning pace last night, van

one time in the early stages held a

peppered the rims with a will to put
the Little Hoyas far ahead.
Lavelle (Dope) Dean, Eastern cap

Nolan. Many were interested in see

being much difference of opinion as

It was something of a novelty to

Tennis Limit Rule Is Likely
To Be More Than Eight Weeks
By the Associated Press.
Cincinnati, February 9 —
With loud opposition already
indicated, members of the
United States Lawn Tennis
Association gathered here today for
consideration, among other items, of
the proposed "eight-weeks rule" by
which amateur net-men would be
limited to eight weeks of expenses
paid tournament play a year.
An inkling of what might take place
on the floor was found in a demand
by the Western Lawn Tennis Associa
tion, yesterday, that the rule be res
cinded or amended "at the 'earliest
possible moment."
Still, there was ground for belief
that the rule would be incorporated
"as is" into the association's rules.
President Walter MerrUl Hall voted
for It at the International federation
meeting in London last Summer and
some saw an indication that his action
was tantamount to approval by the
U. & L. T. A.
Merging of the men's and women's
national singles appeared likely as a
further amendment to the associa
tion's playing set-up. If this is done,
the combined tournaments would be

delegates pointed out.
Delegates to the Western associa
tion meeting yesterday expressed ap
proval of the eight-week plan "in
principle"—but argued that the limi

Amendment to make the rule apply
to 12 or IS weeks of expense-paid
play, was indicated as likely to be
Gordon E. Small, Cincinnati, newly
elected president, succeeding Capt.
J. H. Bishop, Chicago, said there was
"little good and much bad" about
the proposed rule, and added:

In which such a measure would help
eliminate the "tennis bum* problem.

At one time in the final quarter
only one point separated the teams.
Here, though. Western got going to
put the game on the well-k*own ice.

Resumes Winning Basket Ball
Stride in 50-36 Tilt Before
4,000 on Tech Court.
basket ball team was off on
another potential winning
streak today following a 50-36 victory
over Georgetown before a capacity
crowd of nearly 4,000 last night In
the Tech High gymnasium. The
game was the first for the Violets
since their upset by Yale earlier In
the week snapped a winning streak of
27 tilts.
I Fighting gamely, Georgetown gave
the Violets an interesting session, but
the local quint played itself into a
state of exhaustion near the end when
New York piled up the vast difference
in points.
After an even start the Violets
forged ahead to lead at the half by a
26-tO-14 score, but Georgetown ral
lied with resumption of play to whit
tle New York's lead to 28-21. Here
the Violets forged far ahead once |
again, but Ed Eargaden and Don
Gibeau launched a counter-attack a
few minutes later agcAn to cut New
York's lead to seven points, 37 to 30.
The second rally was Georgetown's
bolt, however, and the Violets never
were In danger thereafter.
New York University will conclude
a three-game trip this afternoon when
it travels to Annapolis to meet Navy

Reverses 1934 Step—Fails
to Act on Post-Season
Foot Ball Games.
By the Associated Press.
NASHVILLE, Term . February 9.
—Participation of Southeast
ern Conference foot ball teams
in post-season games was
practically assured when the annual
business meeting failed to take a
definite stand on the question.
The question was left in the hands
of an Executive Committee.
Aside from this question the con
ference reversed its decision of a
year ago in reinstating tournaments
to decide championships in basket
ball and other sports.
Whether there will be a basket ball
tournament this Spring was left to
the Executive Committee.
Court Meet Sure Next Year.
REGARDLESS of whether a basket
ball tournament is held this
year, the event is assured for
1936, along with tournaments in box
ing, swimming, tennis and golf. The
annual track meet, which was not
eliminated at the last annual meet
ing. remains on the conference pro
gram for the third Friday and Sat
urday of May.
After Warren V. Miller, president
of the New Orleans Midwinter Sports
Association, had appeared in person
to ask the conference to continue its
"courteous relations" with that or
ganization. sponsor of the Sugar Bowl
game, the Southeastern group dis- i
cussed the question in executive ses
sion. The only announcement forth- i
coming was that the conference would
continue its policy of letting the Ex
ecutive Committee decide whether
member teams should participate in
post-season games.
Four Provisions.
THE conference's decision regard
ing tournaments included four
provisions, namely:
1. That tournaments not exceed
three days in duration.
2. That participants be limited to
not more than eight leading teams
of the conference.
3. That the location be determined
by the Executive Committee on the
invitation from member institutions, j
4. That institutions participating in
the tournament shall bear the entire
financial responsibility.
The conference set no dates for
the tournaments.
Friends Regulars Beaten, 36-19,
and Lightweights, 22-10.
Kendall School basket ball teams
won from Friends School quints in
two games yesterday. The regulars
were victorious, 36-19, and the light
weights, 22-10.
