Ruth s Ambitions Put McCarthy on Spot: College Stars Take Track Spotlight SHOWDOWN IS DUE, AT END OF SEASON Joe Must Win Pennant This Year or Babe Will Get Pilot's Job in '36. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, February 25.—The trouble with trying to solve the celebrated case of Babe Ruth's future in base ball is that it's more embarrassing than it's mysterious to the principal parties concerned. Whether the one-time home-run monarch signs with the Yankees for 1935 as a player or merely an orna ment there scarcely can be any real showdown before the closing of the coming American League season. The Babe's fondest ambition is that he can stay in New York and even tually manage the Yankees. Since he hardly can be given any assurances on that score, for the time being, he would jump at the chance to pilot any other big league club that would give him something substantial to ■work with. The possibility exists, of course, that developments will open up a managerial prospect for Ruth during the season. McCarthy on the Spot. MEANWHILE the man "on the spot" will be Joseph Vincent McCarthy, the Buffalo Irish man. whose fat contract as manager of the Yankees runs out this year. "Marse Joe" took charge of the club in 1931 after a bust-up with the Wrig leys in Chicago. He piloted the Yankees to an Amer ican League pennant in 1932 and had the satisfaction of beating the Cubs four straight in the world series. He was rewarded with a three-year re newal of his contract at a salary re ported to be $35,000 annually. Since then the club has run second to Wash ington and Detroit. As every one knows, however, Col. Jacob Ruppert loves a winner, not a runner-up. The Yankee owner never has spared the check book in helping his managers to produce one : or more. Nor has he ever hampered his team leaders otherwise. His support of the late Miller Hug gins was unwavering at such times as "Hug" had run-ins with Ruth or was the target of critics. McCarthy has had similar backing and he will have it this year, Ruth or no Ruth. It is no secret that Joe and the Babe are not exactly pals. Not Joe's Fault Last Year. NEITHER Ruppert 01 any one else can blame McCarthy for the Yankees' failure to win the j pennant last year. The Babe's de cline was one factor, but the club as a whole was riddled by injuries and handicapped by the sudden lapse in effectiveness of several pitching stars. The magnificent work of Gomez and Gehrig prevented the team from sliding below second place. However, this didn't make Col. Ruppert any happier. If the Yankees fail to win the pen- j nant this year, McCarthy is bound to . be under heavy fire, and Ruth may j replace him. If they finish on top, ] the Babe can start shopping around j, again. There are two distinct viewpoints ' on the matter, but it seems definite that Ruth damaged the prospects of achieving his main ambition when he rejected Ruppert's suggestion a year ago that he try his hand as a man ager with the Newark Bears, No. 1 farm club of the Yankees. This in itself was proof that the colonel had in mind the possibility that Ruth would make a logical pilot, some day, for the Yankees. But he wanted something beside the Babe's popularity and playing record to go on. RUTH, on the other hand, insisted j there was nothing he could [ learn about base ball by going i back to the minors after 20 years in j the big show. It's a matter of prestige with Ruth j now that when he steps out of the 1 majors, he also steps out of base ball, j It's a matter of business with Rup pert that he won't consider changing i Yankee managers as long as he has a leader, especially one with an ex cellent record, under contract. It's a matter of fact that other : major league owners are not eager to i gamble with Ruth, now that his play- ! ing days are behind him. And it's : a matter of necessity for Joe Mc- ! Carthy to produce a winner. G. U. FRESHMEN END BIG BASKET SEASON Swamp Loyola Yearlings to Ring j Up 13th Win in 14 Games. Average 44 Points.

By the Associated Press. LOS ANGELES, February 25.— Turf followers of the East who think it was another case of the luck of the Irish when Erin-bred Azucar won the richest in dividual purse of all time by taking the Santa Anita Handicap may have a chance to find out for themselves. For Fred M. Alger, jr., Detroit owner of the revamped jumper which took $108,400 in stakes from the classic, today started formulating plans for campaigning the 7-year-old gelding by Milesius in the Middle West and East next Summer. Then, in 1936, if everything goes well, he'll return to his first love, competing in the Grand National Steeplechase at Aintree. England. But first of all "Sugar"—Azucar is the Spanish name for it—will move up to Bay Meadows to compete in the 550,000 Spring handicap there March 23. How Azucar got his name Alger doesn't know. The chestnut charger was christened by his former owner, Joseph E. Widener, who knocked him off to Alger for $8,000 last year. Wins $112,680 in 53 Days. BUT the 45,000 persons who saw him raced to a surprise victory Saturday by capable Georgie Woolf, a product of the Montana cattle range, were unanimous in the opinion his earnings were heavy sugar in any language. Azucar proved a sound investment. Since he was purchased six months ago the gelding has earned no less than $128,000. Of this amount, $8,000 was won in the steeplechase victories before Alger suddenly be came aware his bargain perhaps was a greater rujjner on the flat. It is an interesting fact the horse has earned $112,680 in the 53 days of racing at Santa Anita Park. His time of 2 minutes 2 seconds— as the electrical camera timer caught him—was little short of being a sensa tion, in a cumbersome field of 20 starters. This was two seconds slower that the world record. Late to Take Lead. AZUCAR had to thread his way through the greater share of this field to win. Second away from the gate, he was fourteenth at the quarter post, eleventh at the half time and fourth at the three-quarters. He went out in frcnt a furlong from the finish. Thundering in behind him was Ladysman, two lengths back, with Time Supply, fading at the end after staying close to the pace throughout, third another length in the ruck. What happened to Equipoise, the heavy postime favorite, may never be answered completely. Raymond (Sonny) Workman, his pilot said he "simply wouldn't run." Mcst cer tainly he encountered little trouble in finishing seventh. While Equipoise missed a golden! opportunity of becoming the leading money winner of all time, he still can make the grade in the Bay Meadows $50,000 event.

FULL HOUSE SEEN FOR JERK' CARD Ring Meet With Army Will. Feature All-University Program Saturday. BY H. C. BYRD. UNIVERSITY OP MARY LAND'S all-university night program Saturday is the big gest thing in the way of ath letics for local colleges this week. The program really goes beyond the field of intercollegiate sports, notwith standing it is featured by a dual box ing meet with Army, as it encom passes much that is done in physical education and by the musical organi zations and military department. Last year the program ran exactly 4 hours, but it is hoped that by shortening the time of some of the physical edu cation exhibitions such as fencing, boxing, wrestling, that the length of the program can be cut to 3'- hours. The program is to begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. with a basket ball game with St. John's of Annapolis and is to run until approximately 11 o'clock. There is to be a skit between halves of the basket ball game, and imme diately after the game will begin a series of exhibitions and performances by representatives of both the men's and girls' physical education de partments and by the Glee Club and miUtary department. About 300 students are to take part, approxi mately 100 of them girls. The boxing meet with Army will be the last event and is expected to get under way at 10 o'clock. Will Close Doors at 8:15. OWING to the number of students in the general program, which should begin about 8:30 and run until 10 o'clock, and because of the necessity for using the lobby of the coliseum for a place of entrance to the main floor, the doors of the build ing will be closed at 8:15 and will not be reopened until 10 o'clock, just before the beginning of the boxing meet. The all-university night was in augurated last year and was the most popular event of the whole Winter program. It filled the big coliseum to overflowing, more than 5.000 being in attendance. This year arrange ments are being made to accommo date another thousand persons by placing a thousand seats on the main floor around the boxing ring. Tickets have been printed for these addi tional seats, but will not admit to the building until about 10 minutes before the boxers climb through the ropes for the first bout. A special corps of men will be available and not more than 10 to 12 minutes should be required to roll the ring on the floor, adjust the ropes and lights and set the chairs. Two Ring Stars Out. THE Southern Conference boxing tournament was a costly affair to the Maryland team, as it seems that one of its undefeated men. Lyman McAboy. is out of the sport for the remainder of the year. In his bout in the semi-final of the tour nament Saturday at Charlottesville McAboy broke a hone in his hand and was compelled to forfeit his chance in the final to win a confer ence title. As a matter of fact, Mc Aboy actually forfeited the title, be cause it was learned that the boxer who was to oppose him in the final had such a healthy respect for the Marylander that, with a cut over his own eye, he and his coaches had de cided to forfeit. In other words, McAboy would have got the title on a forfeit had he been in shape to get in the ring. Nedomatski, lightweight, who has won all his fights, also hurt his hand and may not be ready. Both the Marylanders hurt themselves in the first rounds of their bouts, but went on through to win with their right hands almost useless. Nedo matski. however, sustained his injury in the final. The first contest for one of the local colleges this week is a basket ball game tomorrow night in Balti more for Maryland with Johns Hop kins. The Old Liners played well enough against Washington and Lee to beat the Blue Jays, if that kind of performance is repeated, but this year consistency has not been one of their chief jewels. Maryland. It is thought, has a better team than Hopkins. Chief interest In the game comes from the long rivalry between the two univer sities, extending back as it does more than 40 years in various branches of sports. Colonials Will Travel. George Washington's basket ball team takes a trip to Beaver Palls Wednesday night to play Geneva College. The Colonials are good, but will have to remember that they are going out to a section where basket ball is second nature to almost everybody. Georgetown has only one basket ball game this week, that being with Mount St. Mary's in the Tech High gymnasium on Friday. American University has two games, one at St. John's Thursday at Annapolis and the other with Virginia Medical College at home Saturday. There is a keen desire on the part of a good many people in Maryland and in the District of Columbia to bring one of the Southern Conference boxing tournaments to the University of Maryland. It is held that there is no other building in the South so ideally adapted to the holding of a boxing tournament as the Coliseum at College Park. The building could take care of 6,000 persons, and in all probability would be filled for the finals. There would be two factors against such a move, however. First, the tournament has become something of a fixture at Charlottesville and has built up a big following there, and second, the conference treasury is en riched every year by many thousands of dollars from this tournament and the conference itself would have to be pretty well convinced that the event would be a financial success if moved elsewhere. The Southern Con ference is in an exceptionally good financial position, due largely to money it has made from its fistic tournaments. \ Crowned as National Indoor Tennis Queen Eleanor Jane Sharp of Pasadena, Calif, (center), Is shown receiving trophy in New York City after she de feated Helen Pedersen of Stamford, Conn., 11—9, 6—1, to win women's national indoor singles tennis title.

TARHEELS RATED AS DUKE MENACE Air of Uncertainty Marks Southern Conference Basket Tourney. By the Associated Press. RICHMOND. Va.. February 25. —Southern Conference basket ball teams, with North Caro lina and Duke sharing the favorite's position. were headed toward the conference tourney at Raleigh next Thursday In an atmos phere of uncertainty. Only one more game is scheduled before the tournament, this bringing together Virginia Tech and V. M. I. at Blacksburg tomorrow night. An other game scheduled between Vir ginia and Washington and Lee for the same night was cancelled. The one remaining game can change only the standings of tail enders in the conference race which, so far, gives North Carolina the favored spot. The Tarheels have won 12 games and lost 1. Duke, in second place, has a tally of 10 games won and 4 lost. Clemson has won 3 and lost 4, Maryland has won 4 and lost 3, North Carolina State has won 6 and lost 5, Virginia has won 6 and lo6t 5, South Carolina has won 5 and lost 7, Washington and Lee has won 4 and lost 7, V. M. I. has won 2 and lost 8 and Virginia Tech trails with 11 games lost and none won. See Two-Team Tourney. MOST followers of the game ex pect that the tournament will prove a battle between North Carolina and Duke although they point out that North Carolina State and South Carolina are by no means out of the running. The re vised Virginia quint may also unleash some surprises, the experts feel. Mary land and Virginia Tech are not enter ing teams in the tournament play. The odds are in favor of North Carolina, the experts think, because the Tarheels have shown courage and determination which enabled them to rise to the heights when hard pushed. A smooth-working and well coached team is another asset the Carolina school has to boast of. Deans on Metl Musi Prove They Ca Browns' Pilot—Se By the Associated Press.

"That guy's legs may be weak and maybe he packs a paunch— but he still packs a punch and that still packs 'em in the Yankee Sta dium," he said of the Babe. Hornsby believes Cleveland will win the pennant because they've "punch and defense power," and because "they are youngsters and can hustle," but that "with a lot of good teams in the league, it's going to be a good dog fight." The Browns, he said, will be better than last year. He's been trying to get Fred Walker and Red Rolfe from the Yankees and still has hopes of getting Walker. Starting his twenty-first year of major league base ball, Hornsby doesn't expect to play unless he finds hi* hitting needed.

CHICAGO, February 25.—Detroit Farm Crests and Chicago Baby Ruths fought to a 1-1 tie in an amateur hockey match here. TEAM GROWN GOAL INIMMURDAY N. Y. U. and Pitt Rated Dark Horses—Owens' Feats in Nationals Stand Out. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, February 25.—Th» record-breaking feats of Glenn Cunningham, Jesse Owens and company in the Nationals faded into the background today as Eastern athletes looked forward to the I. C. 4-A championships where the team's the thing. There will be no such wholesale fracturing of world indoor standards as there was in the A. A. U. champion ships last week, but for color and ex citement the intercollegiates annually outdo all other indoor fixtures. Sat urday's renewal in Madison Square Garden should be no exception. The team crown—the main goal— usually goes to the best balanced array, though not always. Vale won it one year mainly by a clean sweep in the pole vault and strength in other field events. This time the experts figure Man hattan. defending champion: Harvard, Cornell, Yale and Columbia as the principal contenders. They point to New York University or Pittsburgh as the possible surprise packages, though it would take a series of astounding upsets to bring the Panthers home in front. Of last week's world record-breaker! in the Nationals, only one, Henry Dreyer of Rhode Island State, will complete in the intercollegiates. He will try to better his new standard of 55 feet 3'« inches in the 35-pound weight throw. Defending titles along with Dreyer will be Sam Maniaci of Columbia in the 50-meter sprint, Walter Merwin of Cornell in the 50-meter hurdles, Keith Brown of Yale in the pole vault and Henry Little of William and Mary in the broad jump. In the two relays, 1,600 meters and 3.200 meters. N. Y. U. and Columbia will seek to repeat last year's victories. Owens' Oats Stand Out THOUGH the intercollegiates domi nate the track roost, it will be some time before the customers forget the wholesale assault Owens led on listed world indoor records in the National A. U. championships Saturday in the Garden. The Ohio State Negro ace set up a new broad jump standard of 25 feet 9 inches and then created a new record of 6.6 seconds in the semi-finals of the 60-meter dash. In the final, however, Owens was away slowly, and Ben Johnson. Columbia Negro sprinter, beat him to the tape and equaled the newly created record in the process. Cunningham romped away from Bill Bonthron and Gene Venzke once more as he shattered the 1.500-meter record, bringing it down to 3:50.5. The fifth record to fall came in the 1,500-meter walk, where Hank Cieman of Toronto was clocked in 6:07.3. The principal surprise of the meet was furnished by Chuck Hornbostel, previously unbeaten indoors at dis tances from 600 to 1,000 meters. El bowed at the start, Hornbostel, the defending champion, finished sixth in the 1.000-meter run. which Glen Dawson of Oklahoma won in 2:30.
