With the bout set for 10 rounds, Armstrong's backers were figuring on his nailing Thomas in the early rounds, while Thomas' supporters were expecting Armstrong's 31 years to catch up with him before the final gong. Both were expecting to go into th ring just under the 143-pound limit. Abe Roth will be the third man in the ring. How They Stand By Associated Press National League W. L.

S. navy officer, is probably aware today that he is the newly appointed head coach of the grand new Boston Yankees of the National Professional Foot- ball League. While the announcement of Lieut Commander Crowley's ap- pointment was issued yesterday by Arthur Sampson, genial publicity director, it is probably true that Crowley is far more interested in vital naval tactics than he is in off-tackle slants and the Boston Yankees. But Ted Collins. owner Of the Boston pro football team and, in- cidentally the genius behind the climb to i'adio and stage fame of amiable Kate Smith, is a deter- mined young man. Against the wishes of his rival club owners, he is determined to launch the Boston Yankees in Bos- ton's Fenway park next fall and thus, while Lieut. Commander Crowley is away to war, Collins has appointed Herbert M. Kopf to substitute for Crowley as "boss man" for the duration. (Fenosha baseball fans are well acquainted with the name Kopf. Larry was manager of the Simmons team in the old Mid- west league and operated at shortstop. HIS brother, Herb, was also an infielder on the same roster). Signs Long Contract While Kopf is said to be dura- tion-subbing for Crowley, he ac- tually has signed a long term con- tract with the Boston team and, under the terms, may choose to stay in Boston even after Crowley comes back to football. Jim Crowley, one of Notre Dame's famous four horsemen, used to coach the gridiron teams of Fordham and was a successful head man despite his nickname of "Sleepy." Kopf has a vast and brilliant football background, starting from his first school-tyke days in New Britain, Conn., and lasting through his player-career at Washington and Jefferson college; his days as assistant to Lou Little, the Leo- minster, Mass., master, at Colum- bia and his six year as head coach at Manhaton. At present he is chairman on the membership committee and trustee of the American Football Coaches i Association. , I Dial 5121 for your Classified Ad. "Round Ring" Will Be Used I First Time for Coast Bout I San Francisco -- (P) -- The "squared circle" becomes an actual circle tonight. 'Fne "round ring" suggested by Russ Newland" Associated Press western division sports editor, will be tried in the civic auditorium here by wrestling Promoter Joe Malcewicz in a grappling program. The ring is 18 feet in diameter" rand makes use of the conventional four posts. Construction methods have been kept secret. An organ- ization sponsoring amateur boxing also has received state athletic commission approval to hold its May 18 boxing tournament in a circular ring now being built. Proponents of the "round ring" declare that it will be safer by eliminating corners into which contestants sometimes become wedged, and that it also will speed up action. The "round ring" has been named the "Newland Ring," after its sponsor, who proposed the idea Several months ago. To Tie Early Mark : Bernard Schoen vs. Victor De AnEelis. Bruce Derwae vs. Del Arnold.
