Intramural basketball play yes
terday afternoon saw white hot
action in both leagues. In the A
league tilts, French hall edged out
a 20-19 triumph from McChesney
hall, and the Sig Eps walloped Phi
Kappa Psi 3403. Meanwhile “B"
league action saw the Fijis man
handle French hall 26-8, and Cher
ney hall overpower Phi Sigma
Kappa 36-16.
French Wins
French hall staved off a hard
fought, but vain drive to post a
bitterly contested 21-19 victory
over Delta Tau Delta. With just
two minutes left to play, the Deits
tied the count at 19 all, but Hall
man Darrell Hawes dropped in the
deciding two points with a pair of
foul shots. Hawes also was high

Cherney Comes Back
A determined Cherney hall crew
showed all the elements of true
fighters as it came from behind to
steal a 20-19 triumph from McChes
r ney hall after the latter had led
throughout the game. With a scant
ten seconds left, litle Rick Tromm
liz sank a free throw to break the
19-19 deadlock. Chuck Humble was
high for Cherney hall with seven
Sig Eps Hot
In the final “A” game of the af
ternoon, Sigma Phi Epsilon rolled
over a hapless Phi Kappa Psi gang

combined lightning speed and scor

by the wide margin. Jim Northram
led the Sig Eps scorers with nine
“B" League
In “B” league competition, Phi
Gamma Delta flattened French hall
like a Sherman tank rolling over a
snow man and came up with a 26-8
victory. A pair of hotshot point
makers, Jim Snow and Dick Hawes,
who canned eight points apiece, led
the Fiji assault.
An avalanche of baskets falling
from every angle, corner, and side
dropped on the Phi Kaps as every
man on the Cherney ball squad par
ticipated in the 36-16 rout. Jim An
thony’s eight points was tops for
the vets dorm lads.

Skate Pennant
DAVOS, Switzerland, Feb. 13—
(UP)—Dick Button, 18-year-old
skating marvel from Englewood,
N. J., in one of the most brilliant
performances ever seen on Euro
pean ice, today became the first
American ever to win the men’s
world figure skating championship,
while Barbara Ann Scott of Otta

her women’s crown.
The handsome young Olympic
champion turned in a near-flawless
exhibition in the free skating events
to overcome the narrow lead which
defending champion Hans Gersch
wiler of Switzerland had assumed
in yesterday’s compulsory figures
and thus made it a clean sweep of

Action Against Ed
CHICAGO, Feb. 13 (UP)Jonas'
H. Ingram, commissioner of the
All-America football conference,
said tonight that no disciplinary
action is planned “at present"
against Ed McKeever, Chicago
Rocket coach whose recent “white
paper" upset the Pacific coast con
Ingram said he probably would
hear more about the affair tomor
row when the first executive ses
sion of the AAC annual meeting
gets under way.
The newly hired Rocket coach
left his post at the University of
San Francisco with a published
parting shot against the Univer
sity's use of ineligible football play
ers who withheld information
about their previous scholastic ex
perience. He also charged that
“something would have to be done”
about the $70-$50-$40 salaries
which had been paid the players.
Anthony J. Morabito, a member
of the conference executive board
and principal owner of the San
Francisco Forty-Niners, has said
he will bring the matter before the
club owners for possible censure of
McKeever. Ingram has the power
to expel anyone from the confer
ence for conduct detrimental to the

The University of San Francis
co vs. Ed (TexI McKeever feud
faded today just as quickly as it
flared earlier in the week and all
was quiet on the battle front as
Don athletic officials prepared to
mend the broken pieces of their
grid policy.
Following the two days of sen
sational charges and counter
charges on athletic subsidization
and eligibility, officials on the
USF campus today had little to
Father Jerome Sullivan, ath
letic moderator, yesterday wrote
an open letter to McKeever charg
ing the former USF coach, now
head coach of the professional
Chicago Rockets, with counseling
five USF football players to “keep
their past records quiet.”
McKeever denied the charge*
along with another one issued by
Charles Harney, chairman of the
athletic board of control, that the
school athletic files had been
rifled of correspondence with other
colleges regarding- playing dates
and tips on good young- high school
stars who might be prospects to
matriculate to USF.
Meanwhile local observers
pointed out that McKeever, even
while coaching here, had troubles
with his “football family.”
