BASKET-BALL NEWS, CENTRAL STATES BOWLING NOTES, BOXING AND WINTER BASEBALL MINORS AFTER EQUAL RIGHTS IN ALL ACTION Protest Against Pact Pro visions Expected to Come Out at Next Joint Meeting. SOME ARE SATISFIED By JACK VEIOCK. International News Sports Editor. NEW YORK. Dec. 28. Sentiment against several provisions in the pro posed new national major-minor lea ;ue agreement is growing among the minors and will be strongly voiced at the next Joint meeting in Chicago Jan. 12, it de veloped today. The minors agreed to act jointly with the majors In reconstructing the govern ment of the game, it Is pointed out. with the understanding that they were to have an equa’ voice in all future councils In. which they might have any Interest, and they will Insist on this right. While the text of the proposed agree ment has not been made public, it Is apparent that, although sitno of the minor leagues may be satisfied with the pact, this sentiment Is not unanimous. MAINKB STATES FEW OBJECTIONS. In a circular sent out by George H. Maine*, president of the Michigan-On taTlo League, and a member of the minor league committee, sentiment as expressed by the objecting faction Is set forth In a lengthy statement embodying the fol lowing principal points: An important clause In any major minor pact should provide for the settle ment of disputes between leagues, clubs or Individuals of the parties to the agree ment. That it should provide for making rules, regulations or amendments of mu tual interest to both parties. That it should officially recognize Judge K. M. Ijtndls as the commissioner of organized baseball, empowering him to act for majors and minors alike. That It should provide for some voice for the 'minors except where "action di rectly - fleeting a minor league club is to be taken." And that the minors should have a voice on any advisory council which is ft rmed. OBJECTS TO DRAFT DEAL. The circular also voices objection to the manner in which the proposed agree ment treats settlement of the draft ques tion. As some of the minors see it. one section of the tentative part could be used as a settlement of the draft ques tion by the commissioner and a leage made to accept the terms decided upon by him. The suggestions embodied in the cir cular are not antagonistic. They are \ meant to be constructive and to strength- j en the position of the minors. GIANTS' SPRING GAMES. NEW YORK.

NEW YORK, Dec. 28. ■ barley Harvey was in the other day niking about Europe and the fighters ver there. Charley had quite a laugh or the result of the Moran-Beokett bout, ■:u iiad good dope to figure on. •‘This fellow ISeckett is built much after -he fashion of Jack Dillon." piped • 'barley, iwirll?ig his stubby mustache, lies a good hKter und a good boxer. I i'.v him work out five or six times, and ir.'t figure him in the dub cl.is* at all. "Now that Moran has stopped him In •wo rounds I've changed my figuring a bit. "it web nothing bnt that Moran smile *hr,t I>. at Jtevkett. You know, when you tit a fellow with everything you have and lie stands there smiling at you. It takes ife-.ot o? heart out *f you. •That smile on Moran's pan killed Beckett, 1 can see .Toe now socking "rands right on the button and stepping back expecting him to fall. When Il ium pet 1 Moran with that smile inviting more, it sort of sickened him. '! tut t Mor in s big asset—that smile He smiled - Beckett lambasted him in the first round and in the second when Joe was probably up in the air, leaned one on his chin and settled the thing. "in England, when a heavy gets snipped hard on the kls-er he usually seess the rosin. Moran didn't. He smiled." IS HE BIGGEST LIAR? ' Hi" Iu?o Malone, the lanky center of the Brooklyn basket-ball team, won th in. rs hair porous plaster when he told this one: “There was a fire on the waterfront," drawled Leo. “and a big warehouse full of rubber was swept by the flames. Th rubber melted and flowed Into the street. Suddenly the crowd saw a uiau appear on the roof of the blazing warehouse. No one could get near him. so he jumiH*<l Every one turned away to avoid seeing the poor devil dash out his brains. “Well," continued "HI.” “do you know, that guy landed on the rubber In the street and he bounced and he bounced. Why, say. that bird bounced for three days and three nights and they shot him so he wouldn’t starve to death." HARRY BOOSTS JACK. "Hurrying Harry” Hershfleld, the papa of Abie the Agent, blew Into my Joint here to slip me an earful about the Dempsey fight. “No matter what the sport experts say,” piped "Hurrying Harry,” throwing away a half-smoked stogie, “he's still n champion to my way of thinking After the Willard fight, the experts said he couldn’t go over four rounds. They In sisted that Dempsey was a short dis tance fighter and bad to win early or fall down later from exhaustion. "Th~ other night he fought Brennan, who outweighed him a bunch. He fought him e’ ery second of the way. took quite a mauling himself and won with a K. O. in the twelfth round “He went the route and won with two punches. He's champion. He k-pt try ing for the body all through the fl -fat and finally got to the target. What more do you want? Did he slow up? No. Did he show signs of stopping when he was h t No. Can he go the route and still punch? Yes! That's my idea of a champion." VISITING PI GS DO WELL. Eugene Criqui. the French feather weight who landed In Australia only re cently, is a hot favorite there now. His last fight was with Jack Green, a native, and lasted four rounds. Criqui flattened his innn in easy fashion. It was the first time that Gre*n had ever been knocked out. Francis Charles, another Frenchman, cave Harry Stone a fearful pasting in' their fight, winning handily. Charles then got gay and took on Billy Shade. He bit off more than he c.uilil •hew in that match, for Shade stopped the Frenchman after handing him quite a pasting. Shade is now matched for a return bout with Tommy Uren. He is the most pop ular outsider who ever visited Australia. COLLEGE CHESS. NEW YORK.

SPORT RULERS HOLD THRONES Few Champs Knocked Off During Year of Activities Just Closing. By HENRY FARRELL. Fnited I’ress Sport* Editor. NEW YORK, Dec. 28.—Few new kings were crowned during the most eventful year of sport just coming to a close.

T u rf—ila n-o’-War. Jockej,*—Buddy Ensor. Squash— Jay Gould. Horne-Run Hitting—Babe Ruth. Yachting—Resolute. skating—Oscar Mattleson. Three ring champions were displaced. Georges Carpentier won the light heavy weight title by knocking out Battling Levinsky; Mike O’Dowd lost his crown to Johnny Wilson on a decision, and Joey Lynch beat Herman for the bantam honors. The mooted question of the heavy weight wrestling championship was set tled when Joe Stecher threw Earl Cad dock In a bout accepted as a world's title affair and was himself beaten by "strangler" Lewis in New Y’ork the night of December 13. William M. Johnston lost bU tennis championship to William T. TUden, who also annexed the British court champ ionship. S. Davidson Herron also failed I to hold the amateur golf championship, ! which was won by Chick Evans. Ted , Bay, the British star, took the American open title from Walter Hagen.

America retained the championship of the seas, and the Olympic champion ship was again annexed by the Yankees. jjjjpucS MIDDLE CHAMP STAYS QUIET NEW YOB A, Dec. 28.—With three com i anions passing over the stage In action at the Garden —Dempsey, Leonard und Herman —it appears to be about time for Johnny Wilson to speak hi* piece. John ny !s the owner of the middleweight title through the kindness of a friendly deci sion. He wrested the crown from Mlxo O'Dowd through a lueky streak of for tune in Boston .Since that epoch In Wilson’s career he's ke.pt away from .best* diggings In fact. John has done llitle quarreling: his last efforts reunit ed In his being pasted freely by a George KoMnson. When Wilson was given ©'Dowd's silk hat he premised the latter a chance for his old title. Mike has awaited the chance, but up to press time Wilson hasn’t paid the slightest attention to • •'Dowd’s plejs. There was a big offer dangling before Wilson to fight O'Dowd In a tit!.* event. Wilson declined on the ground he wasn't in good physical shape Now Ms value as a drawing card bn* de creased to a terrible extent and the best offer be could get would be on a per centage basis. As long as O'Dow.l had not heard from Wilson he’s beginning to get heart and ser.d out alight claims on the crown. If Wilson doesn't defend it soon t ere isn’t the least doubt that he will h<* de throned and O'Dowd's claim recognized. The manner in which Wilson wu the title from O'Dowd will help Michael lu claiming his former diadem. HTOEI’F FLOPS ZOLL. OSHKOSH, Wls., Dec. 2*.

Wabash Basketeers Lose to Vincennes ‘Y’ Five in Thrilling Struggle VINCENNES, Ind., Dec. 28.—Baffling their opponents In the early moments of play with a brilliant dash of speed and some remarkable goal shooting, the Vltt cennes Y. M. C. A. basket athletes regis tered a 81 to 25 victory over Coach Pete Vaughan s strong Wabash College quin tette here last night. It was Wabash’s first defeat.

INDIANA DAILY TIMES, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1920. SPORT EDI IORIAL WHENEVER Ty Cobb's advent as a big league manager is discussed some gentleman in the party usually chimes in with the thought that Cobb can not ej.pect to hold a team to discipline when he never has yielded to discipline himself. But these birds are shooting wide of the mark. They point out that Cobb reported late for spring training and ignored other club rules. These rules are designed for the good of the players who do not study, judge for themselves or consider seriously their own good. No one ever has accused Ty Cobb of injuring his playing ability or lessening his greatness as a super-star through “breaking rules." Cobb studied his own makeup and physical needs as thoroughly as he studied pitchers and batters and baserunners. That he schooled himself to be the brainiest, greatest player in the game proves that he managed himself successfully. When Ty knows that the responsibility for the success of a ball club rests on his shoulders alone he’ll study that ball club —the players on it — with the same thoroughness. If he enters his managerial career with the same spirit he entered the playing end the gang is sure to hear from Tyrus Raymond Cobb, alias the Georgia peach. Schedule Tonight FIVE-MAN—7:IS P. M.

Tiger bnsketeers bad planned to spend the entire vacation at home, hut an early return was made necessary by the sched uling of an extra game with the Vln neeces "Y" shortly after the squad left. The game will be played at Vincennes. Another reason for the early return Is to enable Coach Buss to pick n man from the squad to fill the place of "Tiny'’ lllrt at back guard. Because of a del! c'eiicy In studies, Hlrt recently was de clared Ineligible to play for the re mainder of the season by Dr. W. M. Blanchard, secretary of the faculty, and Coach Blit, B.
