Best THE KENTUCKY vrcnNEU PAGE SIX Former College Gridders thejjjj Lead in Professional Game ! ! Seen From Press Box Ed Conboy 5 js Baseball has taken the attention of the mob. for the present time. Coach Devcrcux and his Wildcats lost the opening tilts to Wisconsin but Kentucky may yet have a winner. They they are not disheartened. have some good players and look like a great ball club at times. Tennis started off with a bang Tuesday when Dr. H. H. Downing ond his U. of K. racquetecrs walloped St. Xavler. Tennis has come to the front In recent years under the tutelage of Professor Downing and the local boys have always acquitted themselves In admirable fashion whenever they play. Coach Downing Is known to be an authority on stars and when It comes to tennis stars, picks them like an expert or makes them to his likeness. The Kentucky High School Athletic Association voted down the proposal to establish a czar for Kentucky high school basketball teams. When the opportunity presented Itself, the association passed it up. Maybe they had good reasons. The committee proposed a budget of $9,000 for the salary and expenses of the commissioner. The proposal was to take 15 per cent of the gross gate receipts from the district and regional tournaments, to give the competing teams 50 per cent and the host schools 35 per cent; to put membership fees on a sliding scale, ranging from $5 to $18; to take over the state tournament. In 29 of the 33 district meets, and six of the eight reglonals, it was Unfound that the 29 districts had a gross gate receipt of $30,000. der the present system, competing teams receive nearly $20,000 and the host schools receive $10,000. The amount credited to competing teams Includes that spent for entertainment and traveling expenses. Ten meets failed to pay all traveling expenses and some did not pay any to visiting teams. Under the new plan, competing schools would receive $15,000, host schools, $10,500, and the association would receive $4,500. The loss to teams would be about $4,000. To the host it would be about $500. Cmparing the regional gate of $10,000 competing, teams get more than $5,000 and host schools get a little more than $3,000. Under the proposed plan, it would be more than $5,000 for competing teams; $3,000 for hosts and $1,500 to the association. as an atWrestling's comc-bne- k tendance impelling sport has been rs due to new faces among the who had appeared so often that their contortions had become too familiar to those who regard grappling bouts as something to attend. Most of the new drawing Don George, cards arc Giis Sonncnbcrg, and Jim McMil-lc- n arc in that category. Except for McMlllcn, a really great football player, we do not happen to remember Just how far the other two were prominent at the colleges to which they arc attributed, but the collegiate handle, at any rate, has proved good publicity. In this connection, when Strangler Lewis was being advertised as from the University of Kentucky, The Wake wrote the dean there to know Just what courses Lewis had taken and whether he had received a degree. The reply was that Lewis, so far as the dean could find, never had matriculated, but he naively added, "He may have walked through the gymnasium some time." We are not implyng any such collegiate standing to the trio named, but we do wonder why collegians are more readily accepted by crowds at wrestling shows. Probably they inspire more confidence. That would be- - answer enough. If this confidence Is deserved, they might improve the tone of the sport. Yet we always have doubted whether a newcomer could get far on the mat without conforming to the amenities of the herd. Now how should those of us who would wish a greater future for a collegian than becoming a professional athlete we are not speak KANSAS RELAYS TO BE HELD TOMORROW Another proposal to the association was the abolition of girls basketball. The 500 teams that have feminine cohorts In competition voted for continuance of this sport. A remarkable feature of the brand of ball played In Kentucky is the use of boys' rules. This makes it a good game, faster, just as clean and makes for sportsmanship and thrills the fans. That's what they want action, and plenty of It.

Already Joe Savoldl of Notre Dame, Band Brudcr of Northwestern, Buck Weaver of Chicago, ond others have been attracted to what looks like easy money. Our viewpoint Is liberal. If a collegian Is skillful enough to rise quickly and collect In a year or two as much money as he could save otherwise In a decade, let him go ahead, If he wishes, and can Then let stomach his company. him quit with his money and "keep it." There always is great danger that he will not quit in time .or that he wll not keep his money. "easy money" is more difficult to keep. the collenlan Is only mediocre If as a wrestler, he had better stay out of it, lest he become what has been described as an "athletic bum."

Tomorrow the Wildcats will face a greatly Improved team, as the Commodores are stronger in every department. The ace of the Vanderbllt team, Thurman, a sprinter will be remembered for the fine race he ran against Kelly last year. Kelly and Hebcr will have to step some Saturday If they come up to the mark that Thurman has established, hav-ln- c covered the century in 10 flat. The rest of the Commodore squad Is unknown, but a close meet is expected. Coach Shlvely said yesterday that he has the most evenly balanced team he has ever had in the four vears that he has guided the des tinies of the Wildcat thinlles. With Kelly back in the lineup, the 'Cats are Indeed a formidable Ice ror any team. Keny ana tieoer ran the century this week in 10.1 seconds which is fast time for the Kentucky track. With the addition of Kelly, and Foster in better form, the 230 yard dash is well cared for. If Kelly can equal his last year's time of 22.4 for this event, it is as good as won. The 'Cats will be handicapped in the 440 by the loss of Mllliken, ace who Injured of the quarter-miler- s, his heel and probably will not be able to participate in the meet sat urday.
