Grand March of at Winter Olympics Four Oshkosh teams see actio this week and the games to b played are evenly divided at horn and away. The Teachers college plays its las home game Friday night agains Stevens Point and in view of th Tact that the Pointers Oshkosh in the first game, the con test here is sure to be bitterl fought. HIGHS AT MARINETTE Showing to better advantage wse! after .week, the Highs go on th road, playing at Marinette. From past records, Oshkosh should win but cannot afford to let up and al low Marinette to surprise them lik< the northerners did against Foni du Lac a few weeks ago. St. Peter's play a non-confer ence" game Friday night, but a gam: the Green and White would like ti win. It is to be played here and the opponent will be Oakfield. Oakfield has a crack high schoo team composed of players witl three and four years experience The team has an enviable record lor so small a school and up unti a short time ago, at least, was un- defeated by a high school team Oakfield holds one victory over St Peter's. Saturday night the Vocational school team is slated to meet Kau- kauna, but the game is doubtful as some of the Vocational school teams disbanded. EXPECT HARD GAME The contest Friday between the two teachers' teams should be a hot one. Stevens Point was "red hot" the night Oshkosh played there and the aggregation coached by Eddie Kotal ran up an early lead which Oshkosh could not overcome. When the final whistle blew, Stevens Point was out in front by 12 points. Stevens Point will not win here a tussle as Oshkosh is anxi- ous for revenge. PANE'S HOLD LEAD IN MAJOR AA LOOP Though given a run for the game in the latter periods, Paine's squeezed out a victory over Elmer's, 36 to 24. Saturday night in the Major AA league on the Recrea- tional floor. As a result Paine's continued in first place. The Weigandt brothers, Kroening and Langlitz, did the heavy scor- ing for the Lumbermen, while Bin- ner and Scott led for Elmer's. Lyceum and P. H.

HIGH JUMP CHAMP TRAINED HIMSELF IN OWN BACKYARD Path He Wore Down in Hours of Work Can Still be Seen Out at His Long Island Home By Gayle Talbot. Associated Press Sports Writer) New years ago a anky, smiling high school young- ster rigged up some jumping bars n the back yard of his home out on Island and started in, method- cally, to make a high jumper of limself. Today a visitor to the home of George Spitz, Jr., still can see where hose jumping standards were set mt. There still is the deep path made by George as he ran. hour after hour, and flung himself over a swaying bamboo pole. It is a path, you might say. that ed to a world's championship. For his same youth, now 19 and in his ophomore year at New York uni- 'ersity, set the world's indoor record it 6 feet 7 inches last year and on Saturday at the MiHrosc games bct- ered that mark by five-eighths of ,n inch. MAY BETTER RECORD Before the current indoor season nds. the experts expect him to bet- er that mark. Several times, in practice, ho has ailed over the bar at 6 feet. 10 iches. but he doubts he ever will I ttain that height in competition. "There's something about jumping i a championship that gets you." e explained. "The crowd doesn't care me. But when they lift that ar an extra inch or two and tell ou it's above the record height, it's to encouragement offered by his father, who (.caches manual train- ing at, Flushing high school. After George, Jr.. had outgrown his homemade jumping .sticks, his fa- ther came home one afternoon with a. regular sot of standards. It was, to George Jr., about the finest pres- ent he had ever received. OLYMPIC HOPEFULS SHATTER RECORDS IN WEEKEND MEET Gene Venzke, George Spitz and Emmett Toppino Ac- count for These Bril- liant Performances (By Herbert. W. Barker, Associated Press Sports Writer) New figures tell the story of a determined pre-Olym- pic charge by America's track and field aces here over the two world indoor marks smashed and another tied. Three Venzke, George Spitz and Emmett Toppino of when the last Olym- pics were run off at Amsterdam in 1928, accounted for these brilliant performances. Venzke. a formidable runner only since last year, flashed Wana- the Mill rose A. A. 1-5, shaving four- maker mile of games in fifths of a second off the indoor mark held jointly by Paavo Nurmi and Joie Ray. It was the third best mile in track history, indoors or out.

Neil. Associated Press Sports Writer) Lake Placid, N. 1932 winter Olympics rounded the first third of the course today, leaving argument behind and protests over- shadowed as the men who play the most dangerous game in the world, the bob sledders of eight nations, pitted chilled steel nerves against the perils of treacherous Mount Van Hoevenberg. There were other things on the packed program of the fifth day of the international conflict, but none could compare for thrills, glamor and the possibility of sudden death with the breathless sport that has grown from the youngsters' pastime of sliding down hill. In the Olympic arena, comfort- ably housed on a flawless sheet of glassy ice, the men's figure skating champions of eight nations, among them Karl Schaefer. of Austria, world champion, and his rival. Gil- lis Grafstrom of Sweden, Olympic title holder, gathered for the start Two of the three games in the Major Municipal league played in the High school gymnasium Satur- day evening were of a hangup brand of basketball. In one of them. Sac- red Heart managed to squeeze an 18 to 17 win from Philakeans and take that team out of a tie for first place while they climbed into sec- ond themselves. Kitz Pfeil were hard pressed to win, 17 to 15, from Public Service. It kept their slate clean and con- tinued them in first place alone. They had shared the lead with Philakeans. In the other game, Parker's had little difficulty in de- feating B'Gosh, 30 to 9. TAKE EARLY LEAD In the Philakean-Sacred Heart game. Philakeans led at the end of the first quarter, 6 to 3. Sacred Heart was ahead at the half, 9 to 6. and lead, 16 to 11, at the third quarter. Kitz Pfeil and Public Service each had 2 at the end of the first quarter. Kitz Pfeil led at the half. 6 to 3. and at the end of the third period were one point ahead, 11 to 10. The box scores: SACRED HEART (18) FG FT PF C.
