Kei- S-T'S Inn, favorite to win the Lakc- iFcrter Sectional finals here to- night from the Hammond Quint Auto Electrics, will have to beat a rootin" tootin' shootin' aggregation that specializes in hot scoring streaks. Having won the 1DM state cham- pionship, although losing in the Crown Point sectional final to the Gary Sportsmen. Keiser's now hold a slight edge in tonight's final game with the 'Hammond five. Full fury of the Keiser power ivas flashed in last night's semi-fi- nal game the Crown Point outfit smashed to a 4.1-2S decision over Inland Steel's Open Hearth .'quad. Aubuchon hit five baskets, Bob Phillips collected four and Nick Hashu scored three as the Hub entry took a 2'1-S lend at half- time and coasted to the 15-point victory. Buergler was Inland ,s lone threat, hitting four times from the field. The Quints were held to an 11-9 margin at the half hy Gary Tin Mill but once the last half started it was all Hammond. With Grand- bols, husky former LaPorte high star leading the way with seven baskets, the Auto Electrics wasted no time building up an insurmount- able lead. They outscored the sur- prised Tin Mill crew, 25 to 9, in the last half and pulled up winning a 36-18 game. Johnny Tkaez. former Hammond Tech star, played a great floor game for the Quints as did Vic Mettler, former Hammond high and Notre Darne ace. Yuknis, with three baskets and two charities, was second to Grandbois for scor- ing honors. Two games, the opener at 8 o'clock involving thirn place, are on the schedule tonight. Immedi- ately after the final game, trophies will be awarded to champions, run- ners-up, third-placers and various individuals. Bob Pastor, wife and daughter Roberta Bob Pastor, the lad who stayed 10 rounds with Joe Louis in their recent bout in New York, romps on the floor of his New York home with his daughter, Roberta, as his wife looks on. Bob seeks another bout with the Detroit Bomber. (Central Press) V. S.

REMEMBER tlie ..time to buy all-year round Same Four Teams Favored tmi t i ft n 1 to Play 1937 State Final By DICK MILLER iSTAFF CORRESPONDENT 1. N. SERVICE) INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Feb. 4, 1 this time it does not ap- pear to be such a bad predic- 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 Cal- umet district will send a pow- erful entry to the semi-finals at Logansport and that the Logansport team, while show- 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 Vincemies in the Southern Indiana Athlet- 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 pa- rade of any alleged real con- tenders from the south. And along with Vincennes and Cen- 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 Artesinns can just, about cinch the title with a victory over second-place Greencastie at Martinsville Friday night. Central of Fort Wayne has another powerful team this year. Murray Mendenhall's five that was runner-up to Frank- 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 oth- er reserves this year are an ex- perienced lot. Due to the geographical ar- rangement of things, Anderson plays in the Indianapolis semi- final meet, if successful in the sectional and regional tourna- 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 tick- et to the finals, and it is a tough assignment, but in view of the fact the Fort Wayne five has been trouncing opposi- 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 sec- ond, has been demoralized by the flood. With such member towns as Lawrenceburg, Auro- -ra, 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 all-conference 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 mem- bers of that league might eas- ily be returned winners of the semi-final meets at Indianap- olis, Muncie and Logansport. LOUIS MEN BATTLE DANVILLE NATATORS 5209 Hohman Hammond WITH MIKE JACOBS CHICAGO. Feb. 4. row over the proposed Chicago! bout between C'ruurtpion Jimmy! Braddock and Joe Louis today i brought an rift between Louis' fi.nf.3 Mike Jacobs of New: York's 201 h Century club. j Julian Bhick, co-manager of the! Brown Bomber, said he and John i Roxborough "are plenty burned up j nt Mike" find threatened to "sign independently or at least break with Mike and listen to offers." Jarobs hos Louis under contract. Jacobs has frxhibited no interest in the proposed Chicago bout since Sheldon Clark, president of the Sporting elub of Illinois, announced Sunday Braddock had accepted terms of or half the net receipts to fight the Bomber here, next June. FACE CATS FRIDAY With a record of only one defeat in a dual meet in the history of their school, the Danville, 111., swim- ming team meets Hammond high's state champion squad Friday after- noon. AhVfiys a contender for the Illi- nois state championship, the. Central Danville tankmen are generally considered by coaches as being one of the. strongest teams in the middle west. Already this year, the Illinois natators have a record of three vic- tories and no defeats. This includes a triumph over Hammond on Jan. 22 at Danville. On Saturday the Danville team will meet Thornton Fractional high school. s H IN TIE FOR GYO LEAD Assumption walloped St. Mary's of East Hammond, 35 to 22, last night at Central gym, to finish in a tie with St. Mary's of East Chi- cago and Holy Trinity Croatian's B team for first place in the open- ing round, of play in the Wednes- day division of the Hammond CYO Basketball association. The three title-sharing quintets each won seven games and lost two. St. Mary's of East. Chicago earned its slice of the first round title by whipping St. Mary's of Crown Point, 23 to 14. Holy Trinity Croa- tian's B team outclassed St. Jos- eph's of East Chicago, 25 to 14, in worming its way into the triple tie for first. In the other games played last night, St. Joseph's of Hammond whipped St. Mary's of Whiting, 35 to 26, and St. Joseph's of Dyer fin- ished on top of All Saints, 28 to 21. St. Joseph's of Dyer and St. Mary's of Bast Hammond finished in a tie for second place, each club boasting six victories against three losses. Summary: ATVW H. T. Grout. B F PlSt. Joe (E.G.)

B. fl 0 Ij Irish Maintain Early Lead to Defeat Purdue SOUTH BEND, Ind., Feb. the Purdue bas- ketball squad beneath an early game attack that gave them a 17 to 2 lead at one time, Notre Dame avenged a defeat by the Boilermak- 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 co-leaders 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 early-game spurt that left the Boilermaker shock troops bewil- 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 as- sistant 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 tal- lying 11 points. Jewell Young, Big Ten leading scorer, tallied only four field goals. Purdue kept in the run- ning by sinking 14 of 19 free throws. HAYES TO REFEREE BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Feb. 4.- Coach E. C. Hayes of i Indiana university today an i nounced he had accepted the invi- tation of Clyde Littlcficld, Univer- 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 divi- sion, thereby winning the right to play Elkhart, ranking Eastern di- vision favorite, for NIHSC honors. That is the concensus of the so- called better basketball minds around the Calumet district, al- though most of the better minds should know better than to be pos- itive about anything, including Horace Mann. Froebel in Slump Froebel started fast this year and actually beat the Horsemen, 37-34, 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 2-1 favor- 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 phenominally from the field during the first half. Only one question remains to be answered about Horace Mann. That is: Can Coach Crown's boys handle a fast-break offense? If the red shirts answer this one decisive- ly tonight they will rank as the outstanding NIHSC 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 34-16 beating by Mann last week, must stave off the sec- ond-place challenge of Valparaiso tomorrow night in Gary. Valparai- so is coming fast and may yet be the one team to block the rose- 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 Mygrants, Peck and Ziemba, Wildcat aces, are out of the Jineup. A large crowd is likely to be on hand to see if the Pur- ple can continue the fine showing of last week when Froebel took a 38-23 whipping. Washington and Whiting battle on the Oiler court where Gallivan's boys defeated Froebel and played the pants off Hammond. If the Oil- ers can put the buckles on Don Yohe they may slip through again. Clark is at Tolleston Friday for a. "breather" before engaging in re- turn warfare Saturday night in Pioneer gym with the Whiting five. Fractional, in an unexplainable slump, invades Harvey Friday night to meet Jack Lipe's Flying Cloud. This one looks to be Harvey by 10 points unless the Meteors can come back. Hammond Tech is idle Friday but travels to Michigan City Satur- day night. Basketball Scores COLLEGE Notre Dame 47, Purdue 40. Ball State 42, Earlham 37. HIGH SCHOOL Shelbyville 26, Madison 22.

Chicago Ibs. American vs. Ra- ven A. Ibs. Most bitterly contested games of the Calumet cage tourney were staged at Memorial Park court last night. Outplayed and unable to click for three stanzas while their oppo- nents piled up a comfortable lead General American rallied in the last two minutes of play to tie the count at 21 all. In the extra, session, Hrebic connected for St. Michaels, then baskets by Niemec, Benich and Rogus pulled the game out of the fire for the Carbuilders, 27-23. Club Sar Constable O'Brien's figured in another pulse stimulator in a point for point battle, with the Garyites on the long end of a 36 to ,35 score. Calumet City Democrats and Smith Auto Wreckers, defending champions, were eliminated by the East Chicago Fifes and the Var- sity club. Democrats lost, 25-15; Smith Auto Wreckers, 19-17. In the first heavyweight tilt the Calumet City Democrats surprised a well operating Katherine House aggregation 23 to 17 with Red Za- sada and Ervvin Malak leading the way with seven points each. Semi-finals In the 150 pound class and the fast stepping Orange Crush girls' team from Kankakee are on this evening's menu.

Gaining seven victories by falls, the Purple squad displayed the pol- ished technique that led them to two successive state titles. Although Lindblom cams off first in the heavyweight bout, it was the out- standing event, of the evening. Ray Frankowski was pitted ngainst Reagen, a colored boy, and this pair, hauling into a strenuous overtime, gave a marvelous exhi- bition of brawn against brawn from which they both emerged ex- hausted. Al Dowgielle's time was the fast- est of the evening. He gained a. fall in 2Vi rmnimtes over Williams. Both schools also matched their second stringers and the CaU were once more victories, 30-11. Results of first team meet were: Orr (H) pinned Hunt t'L) in :00 pounds; Kotso (H) pinned Stons 108 pounds; Fredericks (H) pinned Hatman 118 pounds; Adams H) pinned Jung- man 125 pounds; Jones iL) time advantage over Miofsky 135 pounds: L. Mantia (H) time advantage over Conley
