The romance has been a secret for several years and announcement of Lottos engagement to Miss Edith L. Collinson of Wakefield, was to be kept under cover until Friday. His happiness got the better of him last night, however, and just before he stepped onto the tennis court at the Boston Garden he said: “The engagement will be . announced formally next Friday, and we will be married next June.” George liked being an amateur, he said, but in order to marry he had to have an income. “That’s why I turned pro.” he said. This will be Lott’s second venture in matrimony. He was married five years ago to Abigan Stapleford Allen in Elkton. Md. They were divorced March 28, 1932.

Oliver Ward In a wrestling show filled with cheers, boos and flying glass caused when an irate fan tossed a pop bottle ringward, Stanley Buresh. the kicking Australian, downed Marion Mynster, Charleston favorite, in two out of three falls in the main go of the American Legion’s weekly card at the armory Monday night. The bushy haired Buresh won the first fall in 23 minutes and 23 seconds after his kangaroo kick had Mynster | fiat on the canvas. In the second fall Buresh again tried his famous kick but struck only a glancing blow and Mynster retaliated with the same kick .    before    the Australian could recover. wVrnff    I    blow caught Buresh flush on the * 1 chin and ended the fall in Mynster’s favor after 13 minutes and 51 seconds. After two minutes of wrestling in the deciding fall, the excitement was too much for an irate fan and he tossed a pop bottle into the ring from the bleachers. The bottle broke into many small pieces and the match was halted for IO minutes while members of the Legion swept, shook and turned the canvas.

Also on the card tonight is the contest between Geneva and Carnegie Tech. The Covenanters, mowing down opponents right and left, figure to take the much-battered Tartans, The Pitt Panthers are on their way to New York to meet Fordham's Rams in a double bill that also will see Temple and New York U. on the floor.

Sixty-seven players are entered in the men’s singles race, in which State Champion Eddie Pierson stands as favorite. With such stars as Billy Warner, Harry Whittington, Charles Miledburg. Clarence Pharr, Harold Wolfe. Bill Keesling, Jimmy Pierson and Jimmy Bossie, however, the state title-holder will certainly have his hands full. Some say Whittington, who has won the West Virginia championship once and the city crown twice. is a “has been”, but he's still tough to get out of there. Harry, in our opinion, will be one of the hardest in the tournament to turn back. There are several of Charleston high school’s football players entered in ihe event, including Sam Audia. Babe Corey, Bob Miller and Gordon Grisinger. Huey Long can talk to the Louisiana State university gridiron team all he wants to next season. Biff Jones resigned as head coach at L. S. I', after Long had been refused a chance to give the players a pep talk between halves of a game, but Bernie Moore, who has been appointed to succeed Jones, says Long can talk to the players anytime he desires. “Why shouldn’t he talk to them?” Moore asks. “It’s his team isn't it?” * * * SCRIBBLES:    Hiram    Dempsey, Jack's father, is visiting \he former heavyweight    champion    in    New York. . . .

This makes the New River team 12 points better than the Indians but if the local offense begins to function I and the boys begin to shoot more often land with more accuracy the Bears may ; end the game on the short end of the I score. New River has won two and lost one in play to date. The Bears defeated Holbrook 44-40, and Capitol City Commercial college 48-31. Rio Grande of Ohio defeated Harricks* team last j Thursday night. The Kanawhans have lost two and : won one. being defeated by Holbrook I , in two games and winning from St. ! I George in their only start in the City j league, 30-12. Coach Thom will conclude practice for the New River game in a light shooting drill Wednesday afternoon. The last hard work was finished Monday in preparation for two hard games in a row for Kanawha. They play Carbide in the City league Tuesday* and j then go to Montgomery the next night for the real test against the Golden Bears. Bill Hager, who has not been play- j ing for several weeks on orders from j his doctor, returned to practice Mon- I day and seemed to be showing up well, i Hager may start the New River game if he returns to his old form and shapes up well in the next two days. j RONCEVERTE.

Frick, of the National league, has ! day night before going to Seth Friday •* *    ....    night    for    the first game ever played called an emergency meeting of league directors for Friday. An effort by Judge Fuch to use Fenway park, home of the Red Sox, left him as far removed from a solution as he was when he abandoned his lease some time ago because he could not pay rent. Tom Yawkey, rich young owner of the Sox. is unalterably opposed to the dogs and steadfastly has declined in a between the two schools. In all probability Gauley Bridge will line up with Bryant and Captain Buckley at the forwards, Waugh at center with LeRose and Crandall at the guards. Castle, Sizemore, Scarbro and Warren are also slated for action and may break into the starting five. Individual scoring of the team in the games played this season follows: Buckley, 61; Gryant, 41; Waugh, 17; loud voice to permit the Braves to LeRose- -20: Crandall, 8: Sizemore. 9; ’* A Warren. 13; Scarbro, 3; Castle.

What the league directors wall do is problematical, but they are expected to start by trying to soften Yawkey. Failure there would leave them with a hot potato and no place to throw it, j for, in the first and most important I place, the league rules prohibit, in so i many words, gambling in ball parks. Violation is punishable by forfeiture of franchise. Judge Fuchs and Frick conferred, but could reach no solution, except a general conference of all directors which was hurriedly arranged by long distance. The unprecedented situation was not wholly unexpected. During the midwinter baseball league meetings, Judge Fuchs was refused permission by Frick and Baseball Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis to connect baseball and dog racing in any way. Judge Fuch’s lease is said to have been signed through into 1946, but because, according to the same report, he couldn't meet the rent after last season with his hapless team and because the dog racers were there eager to move in, he was moved out. Judge Fuch’s originally was interested in putting in the dog plant himself. Whether he is connected with the kennel club, which has moved in, has not been established and he could not be reached for a statement. Castle, Grimmett, I; C. Coleman, I; J.
