FUNNY things happen! Some months ago I bid good

During 'the time that I spent there we managed to go

NEW YORK, March 12. (AP)
Once a eoUege acquires the idea
it can tarn out champfonslRp baa
ketbaU teams, there seems bo way
to discourage it.
Witness the sectional triumphs
of inch aggregations this winter
as the University of California,
the University of Arkansas, Uni
versity of Oklahoma, and the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania. It Is a
habit with these outfits.
California Goes Strong
California's Golden Bears, by
knocking off Washington In the
playoff at Seattle, captured the
Pacific coast conference honors
for the fifth time in six seasons.
Arkansas has lost' only one south
western conference game in two
years and now holds the title for
the fourth consecutive time. Ok
lahoma had made it two in a row,
altbongb its activities this season
were restricted to the big six
group for the first time as a re

At Pennsylvania, where the in
fluence .of the famous McXichol
family of start carries on with Ed
die McNichol as coach, the Quak
ers have possession of the eastern
league crown for the seqoqd
straight year and eighth time? in
league history. ' ' ', .-
No one yet tackled the task of
jlcklng an all-American basketball
team. Perhaps it will be for the
best if not one does, although the
job of picking the best five bas
ketball tossers in the land is
scarcely more difficult than the
task of selecting an all-American
It's possible to start with Char
ley Hyatt, Pittsburgh's great for
ward, and go on through a notable
list of stars. Hyatt, in the opin
ion of many coaches who have
studied his play, is one of the best
all-around performers of this or
any other season. He 'scored 202
points for the Panthers In 21
Good Performers Remain
But if Hyatf is picked for one
forward post it leaves only one
more place open to such a galaxy
as Joey Schaaf, Pennsylvania ace;
Tom Churchill, the Oklahoma all
around athlete; Captain Yern Cor-
bin of California: Frank McMillin
of Idaho; Holly Brock of the Uni
versity of Texas; Bud Foster of
Wisconsin; Wear Schoonover of
Arkansas; and Thompson of the
powerful Montana State quintet.
It it wasn't for starting another
argument, Schaaf might be nom
inated, although he also fits per
fectly as a running guard.

William Harrison Dempsey,
boxinx promoter, discussed his fu
ture today with both the executive
committee' of the Madison Square
Garden corporation and Humbert
J. FngaxyV metropolitan riral of
the organisation Tex Rlckard
built. After the day of debate
the former heavyweight champion
was very little closer to definite
plans for the future.
Dempsey said the Garden prop
osition, which would include the
former fighter in the organisation
as a vice president In charge of
boxing at a yearly salary, could be
viewed only as a basis for future
negotiations. He has no' idea
whether these will take place al
though' he plans further discus
sion with William F. Carey,, vice
president and guiding hand in the
corporation's affairs. '
The offer of Fugasy, made on a
cash basis, was unsatisfactory, he
said, but will be revised and sub
mitted to him at a later date.
"I have three propositions in
mind," Dempsey said, "one of my
own, one from the Garden, and
the third from Fiyrazy. There are
nany details to be ironed out be
fore I can really sit down and
consider seriously any of them."
Dempsey said he would leave
for Detroit within a day or so on
business. He Bald he plans to
buy an airplane there.
