College Episode Called 'Isola le Case' in Athletics

Associated Press Staff Writer
NEW YORK, Jan. 31-We may be a naive sort of soul who would look for the
bay where they dip out the bay rum, but we find it hard to realize a bunch of kids
representing a school would plot to throw a baseball game for money as the Brooklyn
College players admitted doing.
Either the kids nowadays are different or we were brought up in a more
wholesome section of the country, for we could no more associate such a prac-
tice with our college days than we could associate a sparrow with a B-29 just
because they both fly.
From our experience the pride in being a winner and pride in the school dwarfed
everything else, and the boys would have lived on bread crusts rather than sell
themselves and their school down the river.
We can't believe the Brooklyn College affair is anything but; an isolated case.

although, like one bad apple in a barrel, it will cause all other games to be looked
on with suspicion.
It is unfortunate that the gamblers moved in on college basketball, although
the very rules of the game seem to make it a natural for the fix. In football
there are too many players involved. Baseball, although calling for nine play-
ers on a side, offers an opportunity because the nature of the game puts so much
responsibility on one or two men.
But basketball, with five players to a team, leaves an opening for the fix as one
or two star players with a yen for easy money can make the difference.
The whole affair is something of a black eye for private promotion of college
basketball. We have an idea there are no such happenings involving games pbayed
on campuses. and we just can't picture a crooked game between. say. Iowa and
Minnesota. Pride in the schools and their records are just too great.
We can just hear Forrest "Phog" Allen cackling "I told you so" out in Law-

rence, Kan. Phog put his finger on the button months ago, but was laughed
off as a publicity-seeking calamity howler.
To the credit of New York. it exposed its own unfragrant situation. The sports-
loving citizens here want no more of such shennanigans than do the real sports
fans in other parts of the country, and they resent as much as anyone else the fact
that a handful of cheap gamblers have been trying to make a travesty of the game
at the expense of ill-advised kids.
Ned Irish. who started big-taime private promotion of college basketball, has
keen doing his best to curb the growing gambling, but it's no easy job. He knows
it is a peril to the sport, that such an expoure as the one just made not only will
be harmful to his own private enterprise in that teams will be cagey about risking
their reputations in the garden atmosphere, but it might cast a shadow of doubt
over the game throughout the country.
