Century's Battle ...

JUST TO PROVE ME WRONG,
Baer and Carnera have placed
their X's at the bottom of a contract
to fight on June 14. Now here I
thought all along that a fight be-
tween the champ and the logical con-
tender was just about as likely in
present fight circles as snow in Au-
gust. But they have gone and put
the bite on my prediction.
The story contains a neat little
note that is worth freely quoting.
It says that after the most tedious
and boring session of wrangling ever
seen in signing a professional bout,
things finally wound up with every-
body satisfied. That last crack is
good for a laugh in any league.
They have cut Jack Dernpsey in
on the promotion end of it, which
brings the ranks of the promoters up
somewhere in the fifties. The way
fight gates are going these days it is
an inscrutable mystery to the sport-
ing world why there are so many
people who are trying to claw their
way into a piece of a big profession-
al bout. Of course, it's just like put-
ting your nickel into a slot machine.
You will probably lose your nickel,
but you may cash in for plenty.

T HIS is the first time in many
years that the champion has
signed to fight the logical contender,
and it just goes to show that the
big-shots in the prizefight business
are getting hep to the idea that the
citizens are not laying their frogskins
out on the line to see a big palooka
waltz through 15 rounds with some
octogenarian who can hardly stand
alone and who has been selected as
the challenger just because of that
Yes, they are giving the citizens
what they want just this once. . .
an opportunity to see Playboy Baer,-
who under present pugilistic condi-
tions, is undoubtedly the best of the
U. S. heavyweights, go into the ring
with the monstrous Italian. . . . the
first time that the poor little title
has had any kind of a chance to
change hands since Primo got it.
It isn't as though the bout were
likely to go down in history as a
classic or anything like that. But as
far as the fundamental policy shown
,in the signing of the contract is con-
cerned it is a new departure and
as such, the fight deserves the desig-
nation of "The attle of the Cen-
ROSCOE USES ONE HAND
George Roscoe, of Minnesota, is one
of the good one-handed shots in col-
lege basketball. He got that way after
an injury to his left arm threatened
to put him out of the game perma-
Eight Big Ten

Conference Winners To
Champions crowned in all weight'
divisions of the recent Big Ten wrest-
ling meet will appear here in the Na-
tional Intercollegiate wrestling meet

pions and claimants to the mythical

Big Ten champion for two years. He
will be defending the 135 lb. crown

limited division by Barney Cosnek of
Illinois, who had been defeated in
an earlier match by Buss. The Hoo-
sier's regular heavyweight, Bob Jones,
was a Conference champion last year
but lost his eligibility for this year's
meet by playing in the annual East-
West football game on New Year's.
He was a guard, on the Iniana
Mythical Title Claimants
In last year's national meet Coach
Bill Thom's team took one first, two
seconds and two thirds, while scoring
nine falls to give them claim to the
mythical team title, which was not

meet competition was at the hands
of Indiana by a 20 to 6 score, will
'bring Pete Pakutinsky, conference
winner at 118 lbs., Adams at 126
lbs., and Barney Cosneck, the heavy-
Pakutinsky, a sophomore, came
through to defeat Howard Bush, the
Indiana star in the Conference finals

Minnesota in the finals. Cosneck de-
feated O'Leary of Iowa in the finals.

Childs Ruffs First
Chi Psi Puck
The Chi Psi Red Wings annexed
the inter-fraternity hockey title yes-
terday afternoon in the Varsity
Arena when Bub Brien, fleet Chi
Psi forward, took Pillenger's rebound
off Goalie Reed's pads and golfed a
terrific drive into the far corner of
the Lambda Chi Alpha net. The
score came in 4:49 of the first over-
time period and brought to an end
a hundred minutes of scoreless hock-
ey played in a two-game series to
determine the fraternity champion.
The Chi Psi forward line of Muz-
zy, Pillinger, and Brien was at top
form and proved to be the margin
of victory for the State Street lads
with their fast skating and clever
passing attack. Ralph Whisler and
Chuck Kocsis were the chief Lamb-
da Chi offensive threats and brought
down the rather sizeable crowd sev-
eral times with vicious sallies at the
Chi Psi goal.
Goalie Curt Matthews however,
with the aid of Johnny Lillie and
Fred Mitchell, was able to turn back
all these scoring attempts, and played
an excellent game between the posts
to shut out Lambda Chi.
Three scoreless periods and almost
all of the first overtime period were
played, when Pillinger, Chi Psi wing-
man, stick handled his way through
the Lambda Chi defense and almost
knocked Goalie Reed down with a
blazing shot from close in. Brien,
Pillinger's running mate on the other
wing, dashed in and, picking up the
rebound off Reed's pads, golfed a
hard drive into the far corner of the
Lambda Chi net which Reed had no
chance to save.
