College Heads Favor
Giving Grid Revenue
Pools to Services
Notre Dame, Pitt Eager
To Take Up Western
Conference Policy
A»»oci»t«d Press Sports Writer.
CHICAGO, May 18.—The Big
Ten’s patriotic-profit plan today was
expected to spread to other confer
ence* and raise thousands of dollars
for Army and Navy relief funds
during the football season.
The plan, approved by Big Ten
athletic directors at their annual
spring meeting, calls for the pooling
of all football revenue above the
actual cost of financing sports pro
grams. The money is to be con
tributed in the name of the Big Ten
Conference—not individual members
—to the Army and Navy funds.
At South Bend, Prank Leahy,
Notre Dame’s football coach and
athletic director, said that such a
plan met with his approval and that
he would confer with school au
thorities in regard to adopting it.
Patriotic-profits also met with the
favor of Jimmy Hagen, Pittsburgh’s
athletic director, and other headmen
outside the Big Ten who were at
the meeting.
Plan Gets Wide Approval.
Increased expenses, however, were
foreseen because of the support to
vast programs of physical fitness
The plan, which Maj. John L.
Griffith, athletic commissioner,
termed a climax to the Big Ten’s
preparedness program built up since
the last war, had wide approval.
“Universities with no bonded in
debtedness will be expected to
contribute larger sums.” he said.
“Athletic budgets should be pared
as close as possible to raise the
contribution of profits.
“We have no idea what the profits
will total. In smaller university
cities attendance may drop off at
football games because of the tire
"We have been building programs
of physical fitness through athletics
ever since the last war taught us the
lesson that we needed able-bodied
men," he asserted. "As early as
1940, most of our members had
made physical education compulsory
and at present all have some phase
of conditioning courses.
Big Ten Generous in Help.
“Every school also has given room
to house enlisted men’s unit training
groups studying signal work, radio
or engineering. Most of these classes,
under direction of stafT officers, are
held in gyms and field houses which
the Big Ten gladly has given to
save the necessity of constructing
“We want to do our part, and this
latest plan of donating profits is
part of a program we have been
working on since 1918. I don't be
lieve it has been suggested before in
the country and it surely wasn't
used by us in the last year."
Big Ten teams have 17 games
scheduled with service teams, in
cluding Camp Grant, 111.; Fort Knox.
Ky.; Great Lakes Naval Training
Station and the Navy’s pre-flight
training school at Iowa City, Iowa.
Proceeds in these games will be

Big Field Seeking Pro-Amateur
Golf Honors at Congressional
Gas Rationing No Check to Sunday Play;
Thompson Gets Ace at Prince Georges
First big amateur-pro links tourney run under the Joint aus
pices of the Middle Atlantic P. G. A. and the Maryland State Golf
Association drew the largest field of the year to Congressional to
day, where all the pros around Washington and a few from Balti
more with amateur partners competed for War bonds and stamps.
Leo Walper, former P. G. A. champ, who hasn't played in a local
tourney since last wovemoer, was<
an entrant, along with Claggett
Stevens, new Manor Country Club
pro. playing In his first Middle At
lantic tourney since he left town
four yeais ago.
The two associations have joined
hands this year in sponsoring tour
naments, to save gasoline and tires.
In past years the pros held their
tournaments on Mondays and the
Maryland association came along on
Wednesdays with its affairs. But
this year, with the accent on gas
and rubber saving, together with
prevention of duplicate tournaments,
the two organizations put their
heads together and decided to
amalgamate for purposes of these
tourneys. It was a good move and
one that is certain to work out to
the benefit of both outfits.
Heavy Play at All Clubs.
The gent who, with a sour pan,
predicted golf would go into a tail
spin when gas rationing went into
effect probably blew his brains out
when he looked at the country club
automobile parking lots on the first
Sunday of rationing.
For every club around town re
ported unusually heavy play. It may
have been that the links customers
had some holdover gas in the tanks
of their cars, bought before gas
rationing. But whatever the answer
the trutn is that yesterday was the
biggest Sunday of the year at most
For example, when George Dif
fenbaugh passed the 300 mark at
Kenwood he stopped counting.
Probably 350 people played the
course. Congressional played 240,
Columbia had 233, and at Washing
ton more than 250 played. Strangely
enough, the play fell off at East
Potomac Park, usually crowded from
dawn to dark. Manager Ted Fan
estimated the play at East Potomac
at about two-thirds of normal.
Thompson Scores Ace.
Bob Thompson socked a 5-iron
shot into the cup for an ace on the
163-yard fifth hole at. Prince Georges
to lick the birdie deuces of Eddie
Bean and Joe Balestri and the par-3

At Congressional, matches in the
spring handicap tourney were post
poned until next week end, but Club
Champion Gene Pittman found the
course to his liking. Gene had 14
pars and 4 birdies for a 4-under-par
round of 68. Club members played
in a sweepstakes tourney, won by
J. M. Strait, with 89—10—70. Tied
for second were H. S. MacDonald,
82— 11—71, and J. Mark Trice,
Bernard Eskleson took over the
job as assistant to Claggett Stevens
at Manor. Long-hitting Mel Shipley

16—71: George H. Jones, 83—11—72,
and C. P. Ashton, 86—14—72. The
tourney was played with three
fourths handicap.
Results In the first flight of the
Chamberlain Trophy tourney at
Kenwood were: Charles P. Redick
defeated P. S. Alverson, 2 and 1;
Don Dudley defeated Joe Wilson,
2 and 1; John E. Voll defeated
Ralph Benner. 1 up; W. H. Wenzel
defeated G. M. La Riviere, 6 and 4.
Six flights competed.
Cooper Top* Argyle Ladder.
Former Club Champion Maurice
Cooper scored 78—73—151 to top
the ladder qualifications at Argyle.

ershead, 81—73—154; Ray Amsden,
present club titleholder, 80—75—
155: H. Miller, 161, and R.
Lephew, 161.
Officials of the Middle Atlantic
Golf Association for a time thought
of calling off the coming 42d annual
tourney scheduled at Manor the first
week in June, because of the dis
tance from the city and the gas
oline shortage. But they found
they can make arrangements for
bus transportation to the club, and
the tourney now is on. Entries will
be taken by Dr. R. A. Keilty, asso
ciation secretary, up to teeing-off
time June 2. The fee is $3.
Feminine golfers of the Chevy
Chase Club were competing today
in the medal round for the French
High Commission Cup. Tomorrow
women golfers from all clubs near
the city will play at Kenwood in
the class A section of the tourney
for The Evening Star Trophies.

pitch from the wrong side, too.

Frederick County Has Wealth of Trout;
Deadline on Boat Numbers Nears
Last season it was difficult to make trout fishermen believe
there were large fish In Maryland streams. Small creels of small
fish were the rule. Because fishermen, particularly those who fol
low inland streams, are made of the stuff that brings them back to
waters apparently beyond hope,<
they are finding trouting this year
better than they ever have before
experienced in Frederick County.
Whether it is due to their learn
ing Big Hunting is an early morn
ing and late evening stream, or Just
to downright persistence, but large
fish and full creels are common this
season. We have observed person
ally more than a dozen trout ex
ceeding 18 inches, and up to 22.
Anglers Find a Way.
The fuel shortage appears to re
duce the number of anglers fishing
trout streams one day, while the
next brings out a crowd that indi
cates that during war a greater
number of persons find relaxation
through fishing. Maryland and Old
Dominion streams are due to carry
a greater load than ever before has
been known, In spite of shortages,,
because ways and means of getting
to the fishing waters of these States
somehow will be found.
Love Point, at the mouth of the
Chester River, is situated fortunately
so far as Baltimore Is concerned,
for it is the terminus of a ferry line.
This area always has enjoyed ex
ceptional fishing, yet it never has
become as popular as other places
on both shores below.
Now. restaurants and hostelries
there are going on a 24-hour basis
and there is talk of opening the big
hotel, which is good news for Bal
timoreans, but still it leaves Wash
ington anglers crossing on the Mata
peake Ferry from Annapolis, about
10 miles short of this fine fishing
grounds. Perhaps there will be
found a way of transporting vaca
tionists this small distance. New
fangled regulations call for new
ways of living and getting around.
Deadline on Numbers Nears.
Fifteen days remain for boat own
ers to get their undocumented fish
ing craft dressed up with the
larger sized numbers required by
the Coast Guard. Yet we And but
few so far have met this require
ment, which is not only for easier
recognition of craft, but so that
all boats may travel our water high
ways and byways with the same
ease as in other years.
Under 20 feet in length, any reg
istered craft must display a number
from 6 to 8 Inches high. Between
20 and 40 feet 10-inch numerals
will be needed. Above 40 feet and
under 60 the numbers should be
18 inches, and where it Is possible
the same size marking* should be
shown on the cabin top for easier
identification by air patrol. Just
another one of the wartime require
ments, which, If It allows us to
continue our fishing under nearly
normal conditions, will find ready
compliance. j

and give 'lm the berry, but it was
just another one of those short
lefts that only a few rlngsiders saw
and nobody thought was damaging.
But it was the real McCoy.”
Daly still was extolling the latent
power of Savold’s left when the
Des Moines gladiator bounced It off
the chin of one Otis Harris, a spar
mate. It appeared more like a play
ful pat than a vicious hook, but
Harris—who takes a good punch—
went down, landing squarely on the
seat of his britches and wearing a
most surprised look.
“There It la," grinned Daly.
"Nothing to It, but look what It
does to them.”
Nova, who had a rough session
with Villar and almost went down
twice when the Spaniard connected
first with a right to the midriff and
later with a vicious left to the jaw,
hasn’t looked good In the gym with
the exception of tossing a strong,
straight right. Heretofore Lou’s left
has been his best weapon but those
well acquainted with the styles of
both men feel that he’11 beat Savold
with the right or not at all. Lee
can be hit more easily with a right
than left, his drills have indicated,
and If he takes too many he'll pass
out of the picture.
Nova s Gym Showing Deceive*.
A notoriously bad gym performer.
Nova is having all his troubles with
Villar but if he survives the training
period he’ll be bad medicine for
Savold in actual competition.
"We know he’s no good in train
ing.” Daly admitted. "He appears
like a guy with two left feet who
can't get out of his own way, but he
straightens out in a real fight. I
never see nothing like ib—how a guy
can make bad mistakes In training
and then turn around and do every
thing correct in a fight."
Nova isn’t doing everything wrong
in training, far from it. He’s bang
ing Villar with the right, clipping
him with an occasional left and
moving around like a lightweight.
He appears more and more like the
Nova who worked himself up to a
shot at the title, even though Villar
has all but drowned himself in glory
in their sessions. Lou appears to be
In excellent physical condition and
hasn't a mental worry in the world.
Savold to him is merely the first vic
tim in a series of build-up fights he
expects to lead to a return shot at
