basketball players charge a tack-

Al Nagler, WJBK's broadcaster, was
pouring out a rapid-fire account of
the game, and throughout the first
half his operator plaintively tugged at
his coat, trying to tell him some-
thing. But Nagler waved silence as
he continued his breezy announcing.
When the half was over, Nagler
leaned over and asked his assistant
what he wanted. "You've been off
the air." . . . Something had gone
wrong with the wires.
During the heated second half,
the same operator stood upon a,
bench in the pressbox, trying to
fix things, when he suddenly
slipped. He was toppling off the
high girders when Nagler reached
out and snatched him. He sus-
tained only a skinned proboscis,
but it might have been tragic ...
Horses, Horses.. .
WE VIEW with interest the efforts
of O.S.U.'s Ebony Antelope,
Jesse Owens to become a simon pure
after having dabbled in sordid com-
mercialism., Jesse says he didn't get
his palm crossed with silver or even
currency for running.
A.A.U. Moguls say he did too-
he raced a horse down in Havana
and anybody but a sap knows a
haybag which does any racing is
no amateur.

Therefore they reason, with some
logic, Jesse is a pro right along with
the horse whether he got paid in good
hard U.S. currency, Cuban pesos or
Havana cigars and that's that.
Of course other Olympians
have raced horses if that's what
the argument ;urns on. Take For-
rest 'Spec' Towns, Georgia hurd-
ler and Olympic titleholder. He
raced an Army (Cavalry not West
Point) plug over the 120 yard
highs and beat him.
Nobody is popping up with the ar-
gument that Towns is a professional.
It might be that the A.A.U. thinks
the difference in eligibility rules in
the Army Athletic setup and those at
other places, Havana race tracks for
instance, makes the cases of Owens
and Towns horses of different color as
it were.
Outside of the horse incident
Jesse maintains he didn't get a
cent for running in competition.
It is rumored that he was forced
to do a bit of running when he
had the temerity to address a
Harlem Democratic rally on be-
half of Mr. Landon, Republican
martyr, but that doesn't count.
To us it seems like a matter of in-
tent. Towns didn't say he intended to
reap monetary reward on the track
and so far as we know he didn't.
Owens said he was going to but he
didn't, or, so it appears. That makes
Jesse a professional.

Title Race For Indiana
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 10.-(/P)-The
Minnesota basketball team dropped
its second consecutive Western Con-
ference game tonight, 39 to 38, to a
slow-breaking Indiana quint. The
victory was the second win in three
loop starts for the Hoosiers.
The Gophers, unable to get their
fast-breaking offense working, were
trailing during almost the entire
game, and by a 20-15 score at the
half. They drew even with eight min-
utes of the second stanza remaining
and tied the count again with less
than two minutes left, but never were
in front.
Ernest Andres and Marvin Huff-
man, both guards, paced their team
with 14 and 11 points, respectively,
while Paul Maki counted 11 for the
Alpha Tau Omega 13, Sigma Chi 8.
Tau Kappa Epsilon 10, Phi Sig-
ma Kappa 7.
Delta Kappa Epsilon 14, Delta Tau
Delta 11.
Theta Chi 20, Zeta Psi 16.

Hockey Squad
Meets Gophers
Twice In Week
With two victories over Michigan
Tech safely tucked away, Michigan's
conquering hockey team is looking to
its meetings Wednesday and Friday
with its other arch-rival, the Minne-
sota Ghopers.
Up to this year, the winners of this
series would capture the mythical Big
Ten title, but the University of Illinois
has entered a sextet this season, add-
ing new life to the race.
The Wolverines came through their
5-2 and 7-1 wins over the Miners in
good physical condition. Gib James,
star wing, who -over the week-end
added three goals and the same num-
ber of assists to his already amazing
point total, still hav an ankle injury
but will not be hampered by it.
The complete squad of eleven men
will leave this afternoon for Minne-
