By Indiana
On Foul Try
KANSAS CITY - (P) - A free
throw by Bob Leonard with 27
seconds to go gave Indiana a pul-
sating 69-68 victory over scrap-
ping Kansas last night for the
National Collegiate Basketball
Washington won the third place
consolation by humbling Louisiana
State 86-69 with big Bob Hou-
bregs scoring 42 points.
After Leonard, fouled by Dean
Kelley of Kansas, had made good
on the second of two free throws,
missing the first, Coach Forrest
Phog Allen called his Jayhawks
to the bench for what was to
be the final winning strategy.
The Hawks took the ball out
and passed to the forecourt, watch-
ing the clock with every move.
Jerry Alberts, a substitute who
came into the conflict when pivot
star B. H. Born was called out on
personals, took aone-hand push
shot from the side as the clock
registered six seconds to go.
The ball never had a chance. It
slammed against the rim amidst
the groans of the partisan sell-out
crowd of 10,500 and it was banged
out of bounds by an unidentified
Kansas hand. It was Indiana's ball
as the game ended.

Tennis coach Bill Murphy has
a nucleus of six letter winners from

backed by a number of new men,
may show improvement over the

Boston Braves Switch to Milwaukee

By The Associated Press
The Boston Braves, a charter
member of the National League,
shifted to Milwaukee yesterday in
the first change in the major'
league baseball lineup in a half
The transfer, requested by own-
er Louis Perini after several los-
ing seasons in Boston, was ap-
proved unanimously by the owners
of the seven other National League
THE AMERICAN Association,
whose territory was invaded by the
major league, also gave its assent
to the move by a 7-1 vote. The
Milwaukee franchise, owned by
the Braves and operated by them
for the past several years as a
farm club, was transferred to Tole-
do, now "open" territory.
The changes will become effec-
tive with the opening of the sea-
sons of the two leagues. next
The Milwaukee club, to be
known as the Milwaukee Braves,
will become one of the western
clubs of the National League, tak-
ing over the schedule previously
drawn up for the Pittsburgh Pi-
rates. Pittsburgh will move into
the eastern division, assuming
Boston's schedule.
The 1953 All-star game, pre-
viously scheduled to be played at

Braves Field July 14, was award-
ed to Cincinnati.

THE NATIONAL League's ac-
tion, taken in a 3/2 hour meeting
here, was directly opposite to that

refused on Monday to permit Bill
Veeck to shift the St. Louis Browns
to Baltimore.
The circumstances were dif-
ferent, however. Perini already
owned the Milwaukee franchise
and presented plans by which
the move could be made with a
minimum of difficulty.
Veeck's proposal was to move
into a city' where he had no estab-
lished connections and where he
would have to start from scratch
less than a month before the open-1
ing of the season.

town bars and restaurants still
crowded with office workers and
executives eating lunch.
At the offices of the American
Association Milwaukee Brewers
i the new five million dollar
Milwaukee County Stadium
which will be the Braves' home
field, a skeleton staff jumped to
answer telephones which began
ringing almost immediately.
"Everybody that heard it on the
radio wanted to buy opening day
tickets," said Earl Levy, Brewer
publicity director.
LEVY SAID 12,000 reserved seat
tickets, the complete allotment,
had been sold weeks ago on the
premise that the Brewers would
open the season in the new sta-
dium against St. Paul.
"Now that the Braves are com-
ing we'll have more reserved
seats, I don't know exactly how
many," Levy said.
Perini, a wealthy contractor,
told the National League he had
lost a million dollars.

KANSAS CITY - (/P) - The

take definite action yesterday on
the controversial "one and one"
free throw rule, but an official of
the group said it looks as if the
regulation will be given at least
another year's grace.
