The ns were also tied, try company will QMC this afternoon New York, Jan. 18—(AP) A basketball gambling scan dal erupted yesterday with disclosure of an attempt to fix Tuesday night’s Manhat- tan-Depaul game and arrest of two former Manhattan players accused of throwing games last season. The players were Henry E. Poppe, 24, and John A. Byrnes, 22, co-captains of last season’s team, charged with taking bribes in the Siena, Bradley and Santa Clara games. Assistant District Attorney Ed ward F. Breslin of the Bronx said each received about $5,000 in bribes, Byrnes played this- sea son for Bridgeport in the Ameri can Basketball League. Also arrested as alleged “fixers” were Irving Schwartzberg, 36, his brother, Benjamin, 35, and Cornel ius Kelleher, 35. They and the two former players were charged with conspiracy and bribery. Kellogg Refuses Bribe The case was broken when Jun ius Kellogg, 23, of Portsmouth, Va., six foot, seven inch Manhattan Negro center, refused a $1,000 bribe to help assure a Depaul vic tory. "■Irllitread he notified authorities —and jManhattan won, 62-69, in an upset over the Chicago Catholic College. Breslin hinted that scandal un earthed so far may spread to other colleges. He quoted Kellogg as saying that Poppe, in urging him to take the bribe, told him other players in New York and other cities were “doing the same thing.” Poppe Unaware of Bribe Kellogg said Poppe boldly walk ed onto the court during the pre game warm-up to give Kellogg his final instructions—unaware that the Negro had reported the bribe offer. This was the second major col lege basketball bribery scandal in recent years. Five Brooklyn College players signed a statement in 1945 saying they received $1,000 to throw a scheduled game with Akron at Boston. The game was not played. Two men were arrested on gamb ling charges. Poppe was arrested early yes terday in his home and Breslin said he admitted the bribe attempt TODAY & FRIDAY rt1 einNB^ r and Frogs Letter 38 Fort Worth, Jan. 17—(A 1 )—Thir ty-eight varsity football letters have been awarded at TCU with 15 of them to be lost from next year’s squad.

I had no idea last year that some of my boys, were throwing games.” TODAY thru SATURDAY FIRST RUN —Features Staid— 1:35 - 3:16 - 4:57 - 6:38 8:19 - 10:00 ‘jsr h NEWS — CARTOON s Sweep owling jls were victors in the of competition in the Icience Bowling League, ss marked the mid-way licipated 24 match sche- the Bull team in its st place were Col.
