fighting its toughest foe of the winter.
Last year the Wildcats lost only to
Wisconsin, while trimming Bucknell
and Western Maryland and tying
Army and Temple. Capt. Bill Duffy,
145-pounder, and Bob Mentzinger,
155-pounder, seem to be the big guns
of the Villanova outfit. Duffy scored
three kayoes and won a decision in
five 1937 starts. Mentzinger also scored
three knockouts in five fights.

rTHE Maryland-Catholic basket ball
game this year falls short of pre
vious standards, due chiefly to the
Cardinals’ lack of success on the court.
Maryland will be a prohibitive fa
vorite to trim the Brooklanders, who
have won only two games this winter.
Georgetown's fortunes in West Vir

While there is little likelihood of

Movement to Remain Out of
Games Is Mostly in U. $.,
Great Britain.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. Feb. 12—While
the movement to stay out of
the 1940 Olympics unless Ja
pan decides to stay out of
China seems to be gaining headway
in some quarters, current Indications
are that it it largely confined to the
United States and the British Empire.
Battle lines already have been drawn
up for some brisk skirmishes here, with
Jeremiah T. Mahoney, former presi
dent of the Amateur Athletic Union,
heading the opposition, and his old
rival in such matters. Avery Brundage,
favoring participation.
In Europe the British Amateur Ath
letic Association yesterday launched a
boycott move when its General Com
mittee unanimously adopted a reso
lution against participation in the
Tokio games If they, are held. At the
same time the British Empire Games
Federation, meeting at Sydney, Aus
tralia, went on record as opposing
participation in Olympic games to be
held in any country at war.
European Nations Calm.
^N ASSOCIATED PRESS survey
indicated, however, that few Eu
ropean nations are likely to follow
Britain's lead. Norway expects some
difficulty raising funds for the journey
to Tokio if hostilities in China con
tinue. A few others, notably Finland
and Denmark, are undecided, pending
results of the International Olympic
Committee meeting at Cairo March 10.
The survey also revealed that Italy,
France, Austria and Yugoslavia def
initely have decided to send teams to
Japan. Germany is awaiting the out
come of the Naai games at Nurem
burg, September 4, to see how its ath
letes perform. >

Hertzville Headstone’s Win
In Collie Group Great Upset
At Big Westminster Show
Speclsl Dtsrstfh to Th» Star.
NEW YORK. N. Y. Feb. 12 —,
Collies always are a big fea
ture of the second day's judg- |
ing at the annual Westminster '
Kennel Club show. Usually they pre
sent a surprse to the dopesters. There ;
was no exception to the rule this year.
The main upset was the placing of I
Champion Hertzville Headstone, the :
sable and white headliner from Chi- I
cago. which a few months ago made
collie history by going best in show
all-breeds over a thousand-odd dogs
in his home town, over Champion
Bell Haven Black Lucason. the star
of the Bell Haven Kennels of Red
Bank. N. J.
Lucason was last year's best of breed
winner at this show and three times
before had won this high honor at
the Garden. Although this time he
was shown in supreme condition and
to the ringside looked the same mag- ,
nificent dog he always has been, the
judge awarded the rosette to the
younger dog from the West.
Early in the collie judging the judge's
eye was caught by a young tricolor
from the same Western kennel, which
defeated in the class Bell Haven Gold
standard, a dog that just a week ago
topped a record Baltimore collie en
try. Later in the judging this same
dog. Hertzville Hottentot, defeated
Beulah's Silver Merrick of Bell Haven,
w-hich was last year's best of breed
winner.
English Setters Surprise.
ENGLISH SETTERS also provided
a surprise for the gallery. The
best English setter was Daro of Mari
dor. an 11-month-old son of Champion
| Sturdy Max, which climbed from the
American-bred class to best of breed,
defeating a slate of 12 champions
entered for specials only and some of
which not only had piled up breed and
group victories at other shows, but also
had best-in-ahow records.
In Boston terriers, Hagerty's cham
pion Fascinating Model repeated his
breed victory of 1937, but the winner’s
dog was a little dog known to Wash
ington fanciers. Maythome’s Flash
Again owned by Mrs. Jesse Thornton
of Baltimore.
Beagles provided the fanciers of
that breed with something to think
about when winner’s bitch and best
of winners were taken by L. S. Knech
tel's Grapeside Gamble's Greeting,
which made her show debut at this
fixture. She was defeated for best-of
breed by Louis Batjer’s Meadowlark
Draftsman, which was best of all
breeds at the big Philadelphia show
last November.
Despite the various upsets in the
breeds, the roster of dogs that will
compete for group and best-in-show
honors in the final day’s judging will
include the names of many that have
competed and won all over the coun
try. Among the contenders will be the
Borzoi, Champion Vigow of Romanoff;
the greyhound, White Rose of Bove
way; the boxer. Lustlg von Dom of
Barmere; the Scottish terrier. Cedar
Pond Charmer; the chow. Lie Wol Lah
son; the Irish setter, Milson O’Boy;
the German shepherd, Dewet von der
Starrenburg, and the wire hair fox
terrier, Flornell Splceypiece of Halle
ston.

COLUMBUS. Ohio. Feb. 12 —
The National Collegiate Ath
letic Association's "Baseball
Committee" asked universi
ties and colleges some pointed ques
tions today on the relations between
their diamond coaches and profes
sional baseball clubs.
L. W. St. John. Ohio State Univer
sity athletic director and chairman of
the committee, sent questibnnaires to
about 600 athletic departments seek
ing information on which to nego
tiate an agreement, with major and
minor leagues on the so-called college
baseball player problem.
Most of the questionnaire was de
voted to financial aspects of the col
lege sport, but it concluded by asking
each Institution whether any of Its
coaches had a working arrangement
with professional clubs, signed college
players to professional contracts and
received compensation.
Will Confer With League*. I
'J'HE colleges were queried also on
whether "organized baseball oper
ated adversely” to their own diamond
sport programs.
The College Committee, composed
of St. John. Frank McCormick, Min
nesota University athletic director,
and Phil O. Badger, New York Uni
versity graduate manager, was nam»d
by the association to confer with com
mittees from major and minor leagues
on a rode to govern professional sign
ing of college players.
George Trautman of Columbus,
president of the American Associa
tion, is chairman of the joint com
mittee representing professional clubs.
Minors Reject Rule.

was named after an unsuccessful
attempt at the minor leagues' con
vention In Milwaukee to bar college
players from entering the professional
game until after graduation nr one
year after the player left school jfw
he were not graduated.
Action of the committees, which have
not met Jointly, was spurred by dis
closures that the Cleveland Indians
sent monthly checks to the mother of
Louis Boudreau, Univerrtty of Illi
nois baseball star and basket ball team
captain. Boudreau subsequently was
declared Ineligible for college compe
