EC. CLUB WINS ITS FIRST GAME Game Was Loosely Played And Featured Unnecess ary Roughness By LARRY GEORGE In a loosely played rams featur ing a lot of unnecessary roughness, the powerful East Chicago Club agr ETetatlon romped away with the large end of a 14 to 17 score last night at the McKlnley gymnasium In their Initial basket ball bow of the season. The plucky but outclassed K. C V. five from the lower end of the town made the defeated trip under the yoke. This is a keen little basket ball club; and the fans will hear trior of It during the season when they meet some opposition of their own class. The big surprise of the evening was registered on the score beard at the end of the first quarter when the K. C. Uj were leading tke race 10 to 8. To those who expected a Club walkaway, the early advantage of the K. C. U. gang was anything but promising. In fact, many Club rooters viewed the final score with apprehension. However, the Club boys soon ttruck their stride, and before the half was up they were forging ahead, 14 to 10. From then on It was the Club's game with Smith, fiant and McShine dropping them through the net with satisfying regularity. In spite Then they worked to pe ther, they displayed much of their old-time form as a high olass quin tet. But the general trend of their play was ragged. "When they get the newness of the season worked out of their systems the Club outfit shows promise of climbing ts even greater heights this year than they did last season. Trzciiifkl and Zasada were the frhinln light of the K. C. U. fold. These two birds pulled a lot of grandstand hollering from the fans with their sensational and slippery style of play. Stewart turned In a whale of an exhibition In defensive play. H!s ability to stick with the ball In for eign territory was the nndolnir ut the K. C. V. offensive.

Gary. Ind. Syracuse Candidate For All-American Center Was Too Light. By Cheater B. Bshia SYRACUSE. N. T., Dec. I. Frank Culver, "Unklssed hero" of Syracuse University, retiring captain of the Orange eleven, and Syracuse's can didate for all-American center, won his pivot berth by tampering with the scales of the welghlnr machine In the Syracuse gym. That's the story that has Just leaked out here, and whUh has been confirmed by Head Coach "Chick" Meehan. of the Orange gridiron forces. It's a story of pluck from the ground up and of nerve. Culver's weight has been given out consistently as ICS pounds dur ing the last season. That's five pounds mora than It was listed at during 1931. But tho truth of the matter la that Culver at no time has tipped the beam at 145 pounds. And yet he's All-American tim ber in spite of the handicap. Culver came to Syracuse from Toledo, where he was a sensa tional prep school center. His light weight kapt him off the 1930 Orange, team. In 1821 Culver re ported, looking little changed so far as weight was concerned. He seemed doomed to the scrubs. Culver did little quick thinking and then consulted the assistant manager, who was in charge of weighing In. The net result was that when Culver stejpd on the scales nightly the weight chaxt showed 180 to 16 for Culrer. If It hadn't that assistant manager would have received a fine little walloping. Tho "added weight" told, and Culrer got his chance. Then cam tho Pitt game, and Ifeenan did some close personal weighing. He discovered Culver's trick, and the Orange center pleaded guilty, but begged for a chance to face Eteln. of Pitt He did. and hia snowing kept him at center. Then, at the close of the season, cama his elec tion aa captain for this year. But not until be turned in his togs after the Colgate game this fall did the boys on the sqiad know that Syracuse was playing a centre who weighed only 145.

WaUh tSTAFf CORRESPONDENT I. H. SERVICE LOUISVILLE. Ky., Dec. 8. Repre sentatives of the vagious and sundry organisations affiliated with the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues are today more thoroughly convinced than ever that gambling must be absolutely di vorced from all association with baseball. This conviction u driven home to them by Judge Kenesaw M. Landls. in an Impassioned appeal at the annual banquet of the organiza tion, which usually heralds the be ginning of the end of the annual meeting. In attack on gamblers by Landis, came quite unexpectedly. He was expected to base his remarks on the subject of the draft but the Com mlMtoaer ignored this Issue and went right to the heart of the sub ject now nearest his heart. In Offset, he declared that the fair name of the sport Is being as sailed, this time from the outside, and named tho system of baseball pools that operate during the sea son all over the country. "Baseball pools" he declared, "are the sllmest, most vicious element in connection with sport in this coun try. They must be driven out of existence If only for the sake of doing the honest follower of base ball a real favor. Tou have elimin ated gambling, for the most part, from your baseball parks. I now ask you to turn your attention to these baseball pools." The Judge, it Is understood, hopes to leave town early and with him will go the majority of delegates. The only Issue of Importance on the calender Is the hearing of the cases of Olllw O'Mara, Bob Steele and C. J. Crum, of Indianapolis players ap plying to the board of arbitration for reinstatement. They are said to have broken their contracts and now have thought better of It. Some thing of a stir may develop In the event that reinstatement ' is denied them since not only the Indianapolis Club but the entire American Asso ciation stands behind their plea. It Is possible that developments will follow the action of Al Tearney, president of the Western League, In asking that body for a new ten year contract. It was rumored around the lobby last night that Tearney had tendered his resigna tion in the hope of forcing the League's hand.
