Power; Topple Favorites
Huskers Exception; Beaten
By California U., 62 to 59
All of the Big Seven with the
exception of Nebraska continued
to display terrific basketball
power in their games leading off
this week. Of the four teams in
action Monday night, only the
Cornhusker tasted defeat. The
other three were not even threat
ened. While the Huskers were falling
before the Golden Bears of Cali
fornia, 62-59, Missouri, Okla
homa, and Iowa State had
brighter evenings.
Missouri, the team which upset
CCNY's grand slam college bas
ketball champions last Saturday,
dumped Ohio State's defending
Big-Ten champions, 61-51.
The Buckeyes have only lost
to Big Seven teams in the season
thus far. Kansas State dropped
the Bucks earlier in the year.
Ohio State easily won their other
two starts.
Fine Ball Handling
Fine ball handling and a style
of play in which the Tigers kept
possession of the ball until set
for a shot, contributed to the

most of their 23 baskets on one
handed shots.
Oklahoma, meanwhile, was
trampling on Minnesota, 66-45.
The Gophers beat Nebraska
earlier in the year, 55-41. The
Sooners hobbled the Gophers
with a tight zone defense and
displayed amazing shooting ac
curacy to defeat the Northland
ers. The Sooners grabbed an early
lead and never were threatened.
At one time in the first half, the
Okies rang up ten straight points
before the Gophers could tally.
In the torrid first half the
Sooners scored on 37.7 per cent
of their shots. Minnesota counted
only 23.8 per cent.
Iowa State used its height to
control the rebounds and defeat
Utah State, 52-41.

Visibly Tired
The Huskers, visibly tired from
their long jaunt and rough sched
ule, could not break the last
minute Cal stall.
Both teams played brilliantly,
then raggedly in spots. The
Huskers fared best on a fast
break with Buchanan scoring
time and again on driving set
ups. Jimmy made 16 points in
the second half and 24 all told.

Gophers Still
Hunt Coaches
Two Big Ten schools were still
searching for football coaches
today as the positions at both
Ohio State and Minnesota uni
versities remained unfilled.
Athletic Director Ike Arm
strong of Minnesota said that he
had talked to four coaches to de
termine whether they were
"available to replace Bernie
Bierman as Gopher coach."
The coaches were Clarence
"Biggy" Munnof Michigan State;
Andy Gustafson of Miami; Paul
Bryant of Kentucky, and Bud
Wilkinson of Oklahoma. Wilkin
son has already turned down any
offers to go to the Gopher school.
Armstrong said he had "quite
a few" applicants for the job,
generally from high schools and
small colleges. He added -that
they hadn't offered the job to
anybody but that they would
have offered it to Wilkinson if
he were available.
No Conversation
Armstrong said he had had no
conversation with others men
tioned for the job, including Paul
Brown, coach of the Cleveland
pro Browns; Dallas Ward, Colo
rado coach; Red Dawson, an as
sistant at Michigan State; Milt
Bruhn, an assistant, or Win
Brockmeyer, a Wisconsin high
school coach.
"We're going to work as fast
as we can," Armstrong added.
"I have no interviews planned,
"We may not be able to settle
this for quite a time," he said.
Meanwhile, Ohio State was
looking for its fifth head football
coach in a decade. Wes Fesler,
former All-America end for the
Buckeyes who has guided their
fortunes the last four seasons
and to the Big Ten title and Rose
Bowl championship last year
resigned last Saturday night.
Might Be Brown
High in the speculations as to
Fesler's successor is Paul Brown
of the Cleveland Browns. Brown
coached for two years at Ohio
State before he took over at
Great Lakes and then turned to
professional football. His Buck
eyes were national champions in
His contract with the Cleveland
Browns has five years to run.
However, the contract is believed
to be a "one-way" deal, with
Brown able to conclude it at any
time. Since taking the reins at
Cleveland, Brown has led them
to four successive championships
of the All-America conference
and this, his fifth year, the
Browns are tied for first place
in the American division of the
National pro league.
Friends say that Brown has
Implied he would return to Ohio
State as football coach, not neces
sarily as athletic director.

Happy Out;
Majors Seek
Happy Chandler was ousted
Tuesday as commissioner of ma
jor league baseball. The 16 ma
jor league outfits failed to vote
Happy a new contract and told
him that at the end of his cur
rent one he was through.
With this under their belts,
the majors prepared to name a
new commissioner.
Heading a list of candidates
reported under consideration are
George Trautman, chief of the
minor leagues, and Ford C.
Frick, president of the National
Others favored include Warren
Giles, general manager of the
Cincinnati Reds; Branch Rickey
of the Pirates; former Postmas
ter General James A. Farley; J.
Edgar Hoover and Thomas
Courtney, former Illinois State
The name of the new commis
sioner did not come up for con
sideration at the Monday night
meeting in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Will Serve Term
Reiterating his intention of
serving out his term, which ex
pires in April, 1950, . Chandler
said, "I have done the best job
I know how to do. There is
nothing to be bitter about. Noth
ing in life ever made me bitter.
I am surprised, but not huVt."
The ou.ster was accomplished
with amaziing secrecy. Had those
grouping against Chandler ap
proached the wrong men in try
ing to recruit the necessary five
for his defeat, they would have
tipped off the pro-Chandler
magnates and the cat would have
been out of the bag.
But nobody knew what was
going on until the meeting was
called secretly.
Election of a commissioner
calls for a 12 to 4 favorable vote
and the trial poll among the
magnates was nine in favor and
seven against Happy. Then came
a formal vote, 8 to 8.
Chandler, bowled over by the
news, asked for a review of the
magnates' vote and they voted
again, this time 9 to 7.
Dodgers Stop
Next Season
The first step of major league
baseball's attempt to crack down
on television and radio took
place when the Brooklyn Dodg
ers announced that they will dis
continue their broadcasting net
work in 1951 and curtail the ra
dio description of their home
games to a single New York sta
tion. The Dodgers acted as an in
dividual in this matter which
made it almost certain that or
ganized baseball will act in this
manner instead of in one group.
The major leagues, opening
their annual mid-winter meet
ings, in St. Petersburg, Fla.,
made radio and television their
first order of the day. There
were also strong indications that
the minors were going to be
granted the relief they claim they
so sorely need.
The Cincinnati Reds were re
ported ready to do the same as
the Dodgers and the New York
Yankees were said to be work
ing on reducing or eliminating
the network which carries the
New York games throughout the
Other clubs, which broadcast
over networks, were considering
action where definite commit
ments would permit changes.
By working out the problem
on the basis of individual clubs,
rather than taking concerted
league action, baseball hoped to
avoid any trouble with the jus
tice department, which forced
them to throw Ihe radio and tele
vision rights open to all last sea
son or face possible prosecution
on anti-trust charges.
President George Trautman of
the minor leagues and Frank
Shaughnessy of the International
league the minor circuit prob
ably hardest hit by the daily
broadcasting and televising of
major league games were hope
ful that a solution was near.
"The Brooklyn action is a step
in the right direction and a most
encouraging sign," Trautman
said. "Now if the other clubs
will follow suit, we'll have our

Wilkinson Gets
Bud Wilkinson not only led
his Oklahoma football team to
the National Championship this
year but turned in the season's
best coaching job in doing it.
That's the opinion of sports
writers and broadcasters, partici
pating in the Associated Press
year-end poll.
Wilkinson won out for top
coaching honors in a close race
with Charley Caldwell of Prince
ton and Lynn "Pappy" Waldorf,
the old master from California.
The writers and broadcasters
were asked: "Who did the best
coaching job in 1950?"
Replies brought voles for 38
coaches with the 34-year-old
Wilkinson a strong favorite. He
received 44 votes. Caldwell, who
led Princeton thru a nine-game
schedule without mishap, drew
30 while Waldorf collected 26.
Paul "Bear" Bryant of Ken
tucky received 18 votes and Ivan
Williamson of Wisconsin drew
down 12.
Others getting five and above
included George Saucr of Baylor,
Earl Blaik of Army, Bob Neyland
of Tennessee, Andy Gustafson of
Miami, Howie Odell of Washing
ton, Biggie Munn of Michigan
State, Bill Glassford of Nebraska,
George Barclay of Washington &
Lee, and Blair Cherry of Texas.

during the afternoon.

eclipsed the record of 47-5 set
last year by George Prochaska
of the Newman Club.
Cliff Dale, participating in

mark in the Independent class
with a put of 47-9, erasing the
mark of 43 feet set by Floyd Goff
oAg Men in 1949.
Grimm Tops
Paul Grimm of Phi Gamma
Delta topped all the strong men
during the afternoon with a put
of 51-5. Grimm's heave stamped
him as a favorite to cop this
event in the fraternity division
as well as All-University honors.

division with good marks were
Ted James of Alpha Tau Omega,
49-6, Tom Stoup of Sigma Nu,
46-1, and Dick King of Sigma

Sigs Have Edge
If the prelim times and dis

final, the margins would be
come a whole lot less in the fra
ternity division. On the bases of
the 7-5-4-3-2-1- scoring in the
events whose prelims have al

than four points.
Field House would have
amassed a total of 70 points in
this figuring to be well in front
on the Independents who would
have 41. Ag Men's Club would
have 14 points.
Presby House would have the
staggering total of 89 points,
