THE OGDEN STANDARD-EXAMINER Ephraim Hoopsters Trim Wildcats In Final i i I -----irj-i.j- Snow Athletes In Sensational Form Complete Season With Perfect Record TWO St'L'G -UY.KKS, blond boxer of Pocatello, Idaho, and well known in I'istic circles hereabouts, by giving Mushy L'alUUian a lac- ing recently at Chicago in a no- decision event, finds himself in one the most unique positions of modern boxing. Myers is to get a crack at two world's boxing titles within the next six mouths, a most unusual feature for a non-champion. A return battle for Myers with Mushy Callahan, .Los Angeles jun- ior welterweight champion of the world, and Myers has already been arranged. Another with Sam- my Mandell, lightweight title holder is in the making. Jim Mullen, Chicago's latest fistie promoter, is dickering for the services of Myurs for the two clashes. Press reports from the cast indicate that the Callahan- M.ycr3 bout will bo staged during tin.- month of May. Myers created somewhat of a stiv in Chicago recently when In- dccisioned Billy Pelrolle, the Fargo flash, in a spirited 10-round event. That triumph won him a contest with Callahan at catch weights. Thi: Pocatello star is now due to step into the big money. From an amateur boxer to a near cham- pion in a 'period of five years is iho experience of Myers. He has the goods and delivers, AFTER U1U .MEET With the completion of new stadiums at Logan and Salt Laku lor athletics of the Utah Agri- cultural college and the University of Utah, Immediate steps will be initiated for the holding of the 1327 Kocky Mountain conference track, and field meet in Utah. This bit of information was giv- en to the writer first hivudud by one of the prominent athletic lead- ers of the state during the week. An event of this character with the cream of the track.slers of the Rockies would surely be a wel- come addition to the athletic pro- gram in this state annually. Utah is developing splendid track and field athletes and is entitled to n. chance, at least, at staging '-he annual conference tea- la IX1. Utah Aggies for the past two seasons huvc monopolized confer- ence honors in track.

Snow college five of Eph- raim, Weber's fighting "Wildcats" fell before a powerful, smooth working, colorful five, being1 outclassed and. outsmarted after trail- ing on tho short end of a 'score at the half. The Snow aggregation played a remarkable brand of -ball and doubled the ,.score on the Wcbei-ltes, the final count being 2S to 14. j Weber tallied only three points in the final two periods of play, a I field goal from the court by Clark and a free throw. The Wuberites were completely off their gain.e, the locals miss- ing 21 setups during the four periods of action. The Snow guards, Tuttle and II. Mabelby. played sensationally and broke up Weber's plays time and again.

I This perhaps is one reason lor the one-sided contests on the sec- i ond night. Despite this fact the fans who assisted in putting the series over were rewarded with some cK-voi- basketball. Ogden has earned the distinction of being a splendid athletic local- ity. The junior college is a porma- nent fixture and will grow from year to year.

They dribbled, passed, pivoted and played the game of basketball as I it has never before been dished out in junior college competition. Incidentally it was the twenty- third consecutive victory of the year for Snow. For the winners the work ol" R. Magclby was outstanding, with Jensen at center showing a tower of strength. Tuttle, in the other guard post, also demonstrated his worth. For tho Wuberites, Irvine and Weir were the best bets. These men wure smothered numerous times and were rushed in making their shots. The clever forwards, however, were in The 1'rdiu tho first whistle despite the fact that they missed setups continu- ally. In the opening game -the Saints were defeated by the Branch A. C. athlete's, to 2u. The1 Chris- tensen athletes piled up ar: early lead and won going away. Corry was the best bet for the winners while Stevenson showed well i'or the losers.
