Ohio Basket in Final Minute
Smothers Wolverines' Rally

CCNY COROLLARY?
LIU Basketball Stars Probed by D.A.

By JOHN JENKS
Michigan's slow jog towards
the Big Ten cage cellar broke into
a mad dash last night when the
Wolverines dropped a 68 - 66
scorcher to ex-last place Ohio
State in Yost Field House before
1,500 fans.
The loss, coupled with Purdue's
upset win over Minnesota, gave
Michigan undisputed possession
of the bottom rung in the Western
Conference standings with a 2-8
record. Ohio State advanced into
the number nine spot with a 3-10
record.
* * *
JACK JONES, O S U guard,
tossed in a basket in the final
seconds to break a 66-all tie and
thwart Michigan's uphill battle to
pull the game out of the fire.
Michigan overcame a 62-49
deficit in the last seven min-
utes, and it looked like the
struggle was going to pay off
when the Maize and Blue was
awarded a free throw with a lit-
tle more than a minute remain-

ing -and the score knotted at 66
apiece.
But the Wolverines elected to
take the ball out of bounds in the
hope of controlling the ball until
the dying seconds and then shoot-
ing. The strategy backfired, how-
ever, when Ohio State stole the
ball and Jones made his last-sec-
ond shot.
** *
IN THE EARLY stages of the
tilt Michigan raced to a 19-10
spread while the Buckeyes were
stone cold, but gradually the lead
wilted until the visitors were a
mere two points behind at half,
35-33.
In the second stanza Ohio
State showed why it is the high-
est scoring outfit in the Western
Conference by throwing in
everything but the kitchen sink
in running up a seemingly com-
fortable 62-49 lead. At that
point Michigan put in its bid.
Ohio State as a team made 35
per cent of their shots, hitting on
22 of 63 attempts. Michigan didn't
fare so well, putting 25 of 92 shots
through the nets for a .272 aver-
age.
Once again the quintet gave
valuable ground at the charity
lane. The best the Wolverines
could do was dump in 16 of 30
free throws while OSU sank 25 of
33 tries, a remarkable figure. Jim
Remington was outstanding at the
line, making his first seven free

NEW YORK--Thee Long
Island University basketball stars
were called in for questioning late
today in a spreading probe of a
sensational new game-fixing scan-
dal.
District Attorney Frank S. Ho-
gan called the trio to his office,
at the same time emphasizing that
"no inferences" were to be drawn
from this action.
THE THREE ARE Sherman
White, LeRoy Smith and Adolph,
Bigos, big guns in a LIU team that
started the season like a house
afire and then suddenly slumped.
Long Island was one of the
nation's top basketball teams as
it rolled unbeaten through 19
straight games early in the sea-
son. Then the team went west
and, to, the amazement of its
fans, dropped four out of the
next five games.
Their questioning was the latest
development in a fresh college
cage scandal that shook basketball
fans across the nation and led to
the arrest of six men--including
three stars of City College of New

York's
team.

national championship

TH THREE City CQllege stars,
who last year helped fire their
team to an unprecedented double
national crown, were said to have
admitted getting up to $1,500 each
per game to fix three games this
year.
Hogan said the sound of their
own voices coming from tele-
phone wiretap records induced
the accused CCNY players to
admit their part in the game-
fixing plot.
In announcing suspension of
stars Ed Warner, Alvin Roth and
Edward Roman, City College Presi-
dent Dr. Harry N. Wright said:
"We are heartsick. In particular,
we extend our sympathies to the
families of the boys."
He said City College will com-
plete its present basketball sche-
dule, which calls for three more
games in Madison Square Garden.
Others named in the charges
were Harvey (Connie) Schaff,
New York University cage player;
Edward Gard, a Long Island Uni-
versity senior who played last year;

and jeweler, Salvatore T. Sollazo,
described as the brains of the pay
off plot.'

MICHIGAN'S TOM TIERNAN CLEARS THE BOARDS IN A LOSING CAUSE

Prospects Bright for Bowl Pact

By ROGER GREENBERG
The prospects are bright for the
renewal of the Rose Bowl agree-
men between the Big Ten and
Pacific Coast Conference this
week.
Both conferences have meet-
ings scheduled starting Thursday.
While the Big Ten is meeting in
Chicago with Commissioner Tug
Wilson, the Coast Conference will
be gathering in San Francisco.
IT IS EXPECTED that any
differences on the Rose Bowl
agreement that still remain be-
tween the two conferences will be
ironed out via telephone.
If the Coast gives the go-
ahead signal, the Big Tei is
expected to readily accept. The
formal procedure calls for the

faculty men and their athletic1
directors to approve any agree-]
ment submitted to them in their
meeting at Chicago. Then, the
agreement would be passed
around to the member schools
for a referendum, with a 60-day
limit for voting.
The new Rose Bowl contract
probably will run for five years as
the one ;just concluded did. Thej
major change anticipated is that
both conferences will be able to;
send Representatives to' the Rose
Bowl only once every TWO years.
Previously the Big Ten could only
send a member out to the Bowl
once in three years.
* ..*
ANOTHER VITAL question
that the Big Ten will discuss will

be the freshman rule. It will be
lifted so that freshmen can coin-
pete in varsity competition in all
sports. However, the Conference

OSU Going
'-- Hayes
Woodrow (Woody) Hayes,
former Miami (O.) football
coach and newly appointed grid
mentor at Ohio State Univer-
sity, said last night in an ex-
clusive DAILY telephone inter-
view that the Buckeyes, who
have operated from the single
wing for the last four years,
will run from the "T" forma-
.tion next season.
-Hayes was unable to com-
ment on expected Conference
position because he has had no
opportunity to study his future
gridiron foes.
The new Buckeye coach,
terming Ann Arbor "an enemy
corner," declared that he has
heard quite a bit about the
spirited Michigan-OSU rivalry.
He stated that every Wolver-
ine-Buckeye contes.t is "a good
ball game," and called the 1948
Michigan squad (the last Mich-
igan-OSU encounter he wit-
nessed) "a good one and the
cleanest team I ever saw."

its meetings in Dallas last
month, the Big Ten may ask
for permission to resume the
theatre television experiment
started last fall in Detroit and
Chicago. The experiment in
theatre TV of"games.last year
was a financial failure.
Also up for discussion will be
some regulations for the confer-
ence to replace the Sanity Code
which was killed at the NCCA
meeting. The Big Ten will have
to decide on how much aid an
athlete is entitled to receive.
The Big Ten will go along with
the national TV ban on football
games, but will discuss legislative
action against the Television ban
pending in several states, one of
which is Michigan.
