MILLER CORRESPONDENT 1 N SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS Ind Feb 4 1 this time it does not pear to be such a bad tion that Frankfort Central of Fort Wayne Anderson and Central of Evansville might again be the quartet of teams to participate in the final games of the Indiana High School Athletic association's state basketball tournament in Butler university fieldhouse on March 27 Three of the teams have im- posing records for the present season at least insofar as com- petition against the teams they must meet and defeat to get to the fieldhouse is concerned Frankfort leader of the North Central high school con- ference race at present with 10 victories and one defeat seems almost certain to win that league title The Hot Dogs are the defending state champions Like Frankfort While it is conceded the umet district will send a entry to the at Logansport and that the Logansport team while ing evidence of falling apart now will likely be revived and carry the advantage of the host floor we still string along with the Frankfort boys right now Of course the situation can change between now and March 27 Central of Evansville has been looking up to in the Southern Indiana ic conference race ever since the season opened Now along comes the flood to hamper Mark Wakefield's coaching plans at a crucial moment by covering the Central gym with three feet of water The same thing has happened to other serious contenders in the south so again we say a lot depends on what happens down there between now and March 27 New Albany's big team ranks a conspicuous place in the rade of any alleged real con- tenders from the south And along with Vincennes and tral both Bedford defeated only once and Martinsville must he given highest consideration Martinsville is making a runaway race of the South Central conference with seven victories and no defeats The can just about cinch the title with a victory over at Martinsville Friday night Central of Fort Wayne has another powerful team this year Murray Mendenhall's five that was runner-up to fort for the title last season lost only one man Steve Siako by graduation while the loss was a big one a capable reserve was found and the er reserves this year are an ex- lot Due to the geographical ar- rangement of things Anderson plays in the Indianapolis semi- final meet if successful in the sectional and regional ments and it looks like the In- dians will have things pretty much their own way in both Fort Wayne Too Richmond Newcastle and Muncie all neighbors of An- derson and each a strong North Central conference quin- tet must battle it out in the Muncie regional and semi-final meets It is in Muncie that the Central team must win its et to the finals and it is a tough assignment but in view of the fact the Fort Wayne five has been trouncing tion all season the team de- mands recognition at this time The Southeastern Indiana conference race with North Vevnon the leader at this time and with Madison a close ond has been demoralized by the flood With such member towns as Lawrenceburg Vevay all hard hit by the water that section finds it hard to think of basketball Of course Horace Mann of Gary and Elkhart both appear to be in as winners of the Western and Eastern division titles of the Northern Indiana conference The playoff be- tween the two division winners for the title will provide some advance idea of the Northern situation The battle this week-end between Central of Fort Wayne and Central of South Bend will hardly disclose anything due to South Bend's lack of power One thing is certain and that is geography has taken care of the North Central conference in such a manner that bers of that league might ily be returned winners of the semi-final meets at Muncie and Logansport LOUIS MEN BATTLE DANVILLE 5209 Hohman Hammond WITH MIKE JACOBS CHICAGO Feb 4 row over the proposed bout between Braddock and Joe Louis today i brought an rift between Louis Mike Jacobs of York's 201 h Century club j

Lead to Defeat Purdue SOUTH BEND Ind Feb the Purdue squad beneath an early game attack that gave them a 17 to 2 lead at one time Notre Dame avenged a defeat by the ers here last year with a 47 to 40 final verdict last night It was a typical Hoosier brand of ball the two major college quintets of the country dished out to nearly six thousand frenzied spectators The Irish held a 28 to 13 lead at the half and the Big Ten unleashed a last half attack that closed much of the gap and had the locals holding on at the finish Johnny Moir and Paul Nowak scored 15 and 13 points respective- ly and 22 of them came during that spurt that left the Boilermaker shock troops dered Coach Ward Lambert of Purdue was not with the team as he is suffering from influenza and his advance plans of starting a re- serve outfit and wearing down No- tre Dame went haywire before conches in charge of the squad could stem the tide It was Purdue's second defeat in thirteen starts and Notre Dame's eleventh win in fourteen times out Pat Malaska was the chief scoring threat for the invaders lying 11 points Jewell Young Big Ten leading scorer tallied only four field goals Purdue kept in the ning by sinking 14 of 19 free throws HAYES TO REFEREE BLOOMINGTON Ind Feb Coach E C Hayes of i Indiana university today an i he had accepted the tation of Clyde sity of Texas referee the annual Texas relays at Austin on April 3 Crown Cagers Seek Revenge and Loop Fla Horace Mann will annihilate Froebel tonight and coast in to the championship of the Western sion thereby winning the right to play Elkhart ranking Eastern di- vision favorite for honors That is the concensus of the called better basketball minds around the Calumet district though most of the better minds should know better than to be about anything including Horace Mann Froebel in Slump Froebel started fast this year and actually beat the Horsemen back in mid-December But time limped on Horace Mann improved per expectation and tonight the teams tangle in Memorial gym with Crown's confident lads ites The latter figure prevails be- cause too many fans recall how Mann pulled up to within three points of the Blue Devils after the latter had hit from the field during the first half Only one question remains to be answered about Horace Mann That Can Coach Crown's boys handle a If the red shirts answer this one ly tonight they will rank as the outstanding favorite to go places In regional and semi-final tourney competition The Horsemen have the size speed and experience to go places None can venture an opinion as to whether the Horsemen are going it the team way because outsiders cannot know what is in the minds of prep school lads But some of the best teams around this district during the last ten seasons have been handicapped by internal warfare If Coach Crown is not plagued with this dread affliction he has a chance to go places Emerson still licking wounds from the beating by Mann last week must stave off the challenge of Valparaiso tomorrow night in Gary so is coming fast and may yet be the one team to block the strewn path of the Horsemen in Gary sectional play Wallace at Hammond Hammond is at home to Lew Wallace s friendly foe to have at a time when Peck and Ziemba Wildcat aces are out of the A large crowd is likely to be on hand to see if the ple can continue the fine showing of last week when
