Forty-four pins behind after last Sunday's tussle, ihe ^Yildcats erased 4be de- ficit and surged to the front in yesterday's opening match but had their claws clipped in the final two games. Pfc. Don Gurney led the the winners with a three- game total of 449, while Sgt. Bob Bryant salvaged individual honors for the losers with 184 for a single match.

Landis "will not be rushed or stampeded into a meet- ing or a decision," accord- ing to Don Barnes, president of the St. Louis Browns and a committee member. The statement served as an answer to a number of baseball owners who have demanded immediate act- ion in the selection of a di- amond czar. Legislation at present is being handled by a tempor- ary three-man committee which has found favor with some moguls who are con- tent to wait until after the war before selecting a new head.

Mikan Refuses Pro Offer Those Brooklyn College players, who took a bribe to throw a cage game, must have felt rather cheap when they learned that George Mi- kan, six-foot-nine hoop star, had turned down an offer of $5,000 to join the Amer- ican Gears of the National pro league. The $5,000 was supposed to be a bonus in addition to the $50 per week while he finished his educat- ion at De Paul University.

Dick Suman, Moline, Ind., 6-2, 6-3, while Gillespie conquered Flight Lt. Murr- ay D. Deloford of the BAF, 11-9, 6-8, 6-2, in the opening matches of the night. The Gillespie —^ Deloford duel provided thex gallery with its most exciting spect- acle, sparkling with long volleys and brisk exchanges. Deloford, a ranking Wim- bledon artist who has faced Frankie Parker, Bitsy Grant, and Elbe Vines, gave a brill- iant performance before succumbing and served noti- ce that he'd be the man to beat in future tourneys. In the main match, Gille- spie stormed the net to take the first; set, but once Cmay- lo found the range he pass- ed the IBC champion repeat- edly to capture the decision. Moire Dame Hires Devore Hugh Devore, line coach at Notre Dame, has been appointed acting athletic director and head football coach at the Irish school, succeeding Ed McKeever who recently signed to co- ach at Cornell.
