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.

exhibition In defensive play. H!s
ability to stick with the ball In for

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.

BALL POOLS
By Davis J. 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.
