of raising the board two feet. Allen,
long time University of Kansas
cage mentor, advanced his "12 foot
plan" as a device to prevent basket
ball from turning into a game of
Kog reasoned that raising the
boards would make it all the
tougher on men of average
height. The Oregon skyscraper
added Ins weight to the rising
sentiment against stalling at the
end of a game. He favors the oft
mentioned “three minute” plan,
by which the offensive team must
take its foul shots in the last
three minutes of play, and not be
permitted to take the ball out.
Hog, who has been leading up to
his big finale against the Huskies
for a quarter of a century, believes
that the Eastern style of ball de
velops better ball handlers, even
when the Easterners themselves re
sort to the fast break. He does pre
fer the “Warrenized break” how
ever, and believes that the \yeb
foots wore the fastest team on the
court during the LIU series.

A Horror Thriller Chiller
Cancer kills more mothers of school age children than any other disease
® Once, not too long ago—Mom heard her
prayers at night, dressed her in the morning
and got her off to school. . . . But Mom went
away and didn’t come back.
No home is safe from cancer. Last year cancer
killed more mothers of growing families than
any other disease. Tragic—but even more tragic
is the fact that many of these deaths need never
have happened.
Many of the mothers who now die could be
cured—IF they learned to recognize cancer’s
symptoms and seek medical advice immediately
—IF sufficient money can be found for the
cancer research needed to discover the causes
of the disease, to perfect its treatment.
The American Cancer Society, through its pro
gram of public education and medical research,
is dedicated to the conquest of cancer. Will
you help?
