Deadlocked Feuds Add Zing to Star's Metropolitan Schoolboy Basket Tourney ▲ __ - ■ ■■ — — ■ — — . I-- 111 * ■ ■ - ■■ — ' - — - — — - Gonzaga Even With St. John's, G. W. Erases W.-L. Victory Georgetown Prep and Bethesda-Chevy Chase Boost Stock With Important Triumphs By GEORGE HUBER. Interest In the 10th annual Evening Star Metropolitan Scholas tic Basket Ball Tournament wss headed for a new high today, with four of the eight competing teams finding themselves all even in regular-season competition between traditional rivals, with pros pects that these heated feuds will be carried right into the touma ment. St. John’s and Gonzaga, which provide one of Washington’s ace sports rivalries, are in a dead lock, and the same holds in North ern Virginia, where the two, big teams, George Washington of Alex andria and Washington-Lee of Balls ton, also have battled to a standoff. It becomes increasingly difficult to name a favorite for the tourna ment, opening next Thursday at Tech gym, such is the balance and power being displayed by seven of the eight already named as starters. Six of them were in action yesterday and except where they played each other to gain the season ties, all were winners. Gonzaga, defending Metropolitan champion avenged an earlier setback by topping St. John’s, 29-24, last night at Tech gym in one of the best and most thrilling schoolboy games played in Wash ington this year, while at Ballston, George Washington’s Presidents also made up for an earlier defeat by whipping Washington-Lee, 42-28. Preps Bag Important Prey. Meanwhile, Georgetown Prep, al ready owning the Catholic School League championship, finished one of its most successful seasons by winning from St. Albans, 28-22, while Bethesda-Chevy Chase made up for an earlier setback by defeat ing Coolidge. 26-24. Montgomery Blair, the seventh team entered, was Idle yesterday, while an eighth team remains to be selected and prob ably will be announced tomorrow along with tournament pairings. In pulling even with St. John's, Gonzagas Eagles went ahead at the start but never had a comfortable margin. Even during the last min ute the Johnnies were threatening and almost pulled the game from the fire. A big splash in the first period, when it gained a 12-4 ad vantage, proved to be Gonzaga s winning punch, with Ray Fanning and Elmer Raba tossing a pair of buckets each in the early gonig to lead the way. Thereafter, St, John’s turned on the heat and cut the Eagles’ margin to 16-10 at the half. Only 3" points separated the two teams going into the last quarter, and here the game really got hot. A pivot shot by George Hughes, big St. John’s forward, and three successful foul tosses pulled the Johnnies to 23-24 midway of the period, but the Eagles tightened, and with Red Murphy, Bernie Nolan and Fanning dropping foul shots, pulled away at the end. It was a hard and closely fought game throughout. St.John’*. G.F.Pts. Hushes ! _ 2 ft 0 Thompson.! 2 16 Harmon.! _.

Christiansen Renews Feud With Stembler In Dixie Golf Final By the Associated Press. MIAMI, Fla., Feb. 28.—Two Miam ians, Earl Christiansen and William Y. Stembler, renewed a golfing feud of long standing today in the final of the Dixie amateur tournament. Stembler, who ousted youthful Sanford Rissman of Chicago, 4 and 3. in the semifinals, has beaten Chris tiansen only once in their four previ ous tournament meetings. Christiansen, a golfing policeman who holds the Florida State amateur title, gained the final with a 4-and 3 victory over Skee Riegel, Los An geles aviation student. The dual between the two Miam ians today made it certain that the trophy would return southward. Frank Strafaci of New York, winner in 1940 and 1941, did not defend the cup.

In the final eight minutes the Saints pushed through 10 points while the Little Hoyas were being limited to 3, all supplied by their ace, John Showell.

Lame, 1941 Winner Eliminated From National Field Trials By the Associated Press. GRAND JUNCTION, Tenn., Feb. 28.—The defending champion was out of the running today as judges called out the fifth brace in the National Field Trials. The Texas Ranger, pointer owned by D. B. McDaniel pf Houston, Tex., and Mally’s Sue, a setter entry of A. M. Mallinson of Mount Ver non, 111., were paired for this morn ing’s heat. Exhaustion and a lame foreleg forced the pointer Ariel, 1941 win ner, out of the trials yesterday with 20 minutes remaining of his sched uled 3-hour heat. Failure to com plete the grueling race spoils a dog’s chance at the title. Rahn Reporter, the pointer put down yesterday afternoon with Ariel, also was taken up before the time limit. But Ariel’s owner, A. G. C. Sage of New York, still had what ap peared to many a strong contender for the championship in Luminary, named with Wayside Pat M as the best performers thus far In the trials. Both Luminary and Pat, a pointer owned by J. N. Edens, Jr., of Cor sicana, Tex., braved the bitter cold and snow that has plagued the trials to turn in strong, birdy races. GOES INTO HIDING—Larry Baldwin of St. Mary’s (left) covers up in a big way as Chubby Maimone of the K. of C. pounds a right to his head in the second round of their 180-pound class A. A. U. bout last night at Turner’s Arena. Maimone won the decision. -43tar Staff Photo. Maimone Shows Skill In A. A. U. Ring Win Over Baldwin Atkisson Also Proves To Be Clever Fighter In Beating Reid Pound for pound and inch for inch, roly-poly Charley Maimone, the barrel-chested middleweight with the balloon-tire midriff, prob ably is the best amateur mitt sling er in town. At least he seemed to be last night in battering red-headed Larry Baldwin into submission in the feature bout of the second Dis trict A. A. U. championship tour ney card at Turner's Arena. Merrick and Boys' Club of Wash ington ringmen made off with the lion’s share of honors for the eve ning, each bagging three victories as 14 additional youngsters fell by the wayside, but that was secondary to Maimone’s performance. The south east slugger, now fighting under the Knights of Columbus banner, served notice he is ready to regain the 160 pound crown he held two years ago. Can’t Get Gay With Maimone. It was obvious that Charley wasn't in the best physical condition as he squeezed through the ropes last night, but it also was obvious, in the second round, that anybody making gay with his chin with such blunt instruments as boxing gloves has got a fight on his hands. That’s what happened to Baldwin. He smacked Maimone on his goatee a trfle too hard for Charley's peace of mind and promptly found him self engulfed in a hail of leather. Current Golden Gloves champion and a ringman since the tender age of five, Maimone had too much ex perience for Baldwin, who was mak ing his debut in senior competition. But the St. Mary’s youngster gave a good account of himself despite his defeat and undoubtedly will be a much better fighter for the confi dence he must have gained by soak ing up some of his opponent's best shots and coming back with a couple of his own private brand. Johnny Atkisson, Olympic Club welterweight, also came through the second round with flying colors, beating ragged Harry Reid of the Apollo Club in a sizzling duel. Atkis son, a stiff right-hand belter, tagged Reid with his pet weapon in the second round, dumping him for no count. He went on from there to win handily from his stunned op ponent. Other Outstanding Boxers.

Kentucky Hot as Southeastern Basketers Enter Semifinals Wildcats Crush Mississippi, Face Auburn, While Alabama Takes on Tennessee By ROMNEY WHEELER, JUaoelated Pr**a Sport* Wrltar. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Peb. 28.—The four powerhouses of South eastern Conference basket ball—Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and Auburn—stood In line today for the last two rounds of the championship tournament, with Kentucky steamed up about as hot as a team can get. Those Wildcats turned on full speed for a while last night against Mississippi, scoring almosM as they chose to take a handy 59 to-32 decision. The figure on the Kentucky scoreboard could have been a little larger—or perhaps a lot larger—if the big blue team had cared to pile up the score. Replay of 1941 Finals Looms. The lineup of the Titans in the semifinals Is Alabama vs. Tennessee. Kentucky vs. Auburn. The winners meet at 8:30 p.m. for the championship, and sldeliners think it’ll be a replay of laat year's final, with Tennessee defending its crown against Kentucky. Tennessee and the magical Mehen brothers—Bemie and Dick—elimi nated a fighting Mississippi State team, 50—40, in yesetrday's quarter final, but if State had kept its col legiate eye on free-throw baskets, it might have been a different story. --- ■' -. . . — Tennessee all but booted its crown out the door, handing Mississippi State an even dozen charity tosses. The Maroons coverted just two. and the 10 that didn't count were Ten nessee's victory margin. The Vols drew eight foul tries, converted all. Bottles Alabama Stars. Alabama earlier outfought a biff bang troup of Louisiana Staters, 45—31, in a 5-minute overtime period after they had tied, 31—31, in the regulation game. L. S. U.’s man-for-man defense bottled up Alabama's scoring aces, but in the overtime period it gave way under a shower of shots as 'Bama pulled away to win. Tulane, next-but-last in league standing for the season, scared Au burn with a sensational stretch drive, but faded before the finish. The final score was 45—36. G. W. Keen to Topple V. M. I. Five, Beaten By Maryland Would Even Score for Upset; Flashy Rally By Terps Tells Upset by Maryland last night and moving against a George Washing ton quintet hungry for revenge to night at Riverside Stadium, Virginia Military Institute's basket ball in vasion of this territory today had lost its holiday-outing aspects, tak ing on instead the more serious mien of a hard business trip. Defeated by one point in their first meeting with the Cadets last Wednesday at * Lexington, George Washington wants revenge in whole sale quantities tonight and, unless all the omens are misleading, should win. The District team is assured of a place in the Southern Conference championshpi layoff while V. M. I. is out of contention, but that should not detract one whit from the com petition. Maryland’s Rally Tells. Maryland, coming from behind In the last eight minutes to rack up a 39-36 triumph last night, gave the Colonials their cue for tonight’s game. If the Cadets can’t stand up under a driving finish their goose Is as good as cooked for G. W. is a no torious stretch-running outfit. Mearle DuVall came through with his first points of the game for Maryland last night to launch the Terps’ winning rally. Ernie Travis, held to 13 points, but still high man, followed his example and the Cadets were as good as gone. Travis also tossed in the clinching bucket with only a minute of play remaining and V. M. I. only two points behind. Maryland’s advantage was threat ened seriously by the loss of Tommy Mont on fouls late in the fray, but Stan Baitz, who came in for him, upheld his end of the defensive chores in excellent style. Sotnyk, Thomas Shine. Emile Sotnyk and Vince Thomas, scoring nine points each, were out standing in V. M. I.’s line-up for their fine all around performances. M’rland V. O.F.Pta.

'Dazed' by New Draff Rule, Williams Will Report to Bosox Shifted From 1-A to 3-A Rating, .406 Hitter Is To Get $30,000 If the AuoclsUd Am MINNEAPOLIS, Peb. 38.—Deferred from selective service by action of a Government agency, Ted Wil liams, 1941 American League bat ting champion, today prepared to leave for the Boston Red Sox train ing camp In Sarasota, Fla. Williams yesterday was advised that a Presidential Appeal Board had reclassified him under a 3-A rating rather than 1-A. The infor mation came shortly after an nouncement was made In Boston that the slender Red Sox left fielder had signed his 1943 contract. Al though terms were not disclosed, reports were that he would be paid $30,000 for the season. The action of the appeal board apparently was as surprising to Williams as it was to Red Sox officials. The hitting king of the American League, whose .406 mark helped put the Red Sox In second place, had complied with draft board routine and was ready to leave for an Army camp. But the local board reported to Washington It was convinced Williams’ mother needed hls sup port. The appeal board then ruled that Williams should be deferred. In Sarasota, Manager Joe Cronin was more than pleased at the news and said the problem of who would play left field for the team was definitely settled. Cronin termed Ted’s deferment “a most worthy case.” and added that he was sure the young slugger would not “hesi tate an Instant about jumping into the Army when and if he Is called. If Uncle Sam says fight, he’ll fight. Since he has said play ball, Ted has a right to play.” Cronin reported that Williams was "dazed” by his draft reclassifica tion, but that he would leave here Monday to join hls mates in train ing.

Leoffler isn’t kicking about the circum stances of blackouts falling on Tuesdays, when his Washintgon Eagles hockey team stages one of its biweekly puck scrambles. But he isn’t going to be left on a limb next Tuesday night, when the Eagles play one of their final contests of the waning league season, facing the Atlantic City Sea-*! gulls in the last appearance here of the rowdy boys from the seaside town. Washington’s only previous black out, a mere preview, fell on a Tues day night, but lasted only 15 min utes.

Windows of Riverside Stadium will be painted black, and lights won’t show from the outside. To enemy planes, promises the Riverside manage ment, the iron rink near the river will show only as a dark blot. Plan Series With Baltimore. Those hockey boys, always look ing around for new worlds to in vade, are talking now about a home and-home three-game series with Baltimore before the league play offs. It will be drummed up be tween the two towns with the proper publicity.
