The Bens this year will have a slightly different lineup from that which in 1940 lost by one point to the Trotters, current champions. Tar- zan Cooper is not with them but Wilmeth Sidat-Single who last year competed with a white teann from New York state, and A1 Johnson are members of the squad. The Trotters have been strengthened by the addition of Hilliary Brown at a g^ard spot. In both 1939 and 1940, t h e games between the Rens and the Trotten* were high spots of the tournament prior to the finals. The Bens were victors by a two point margin in 1939* Although the white teams are te strongest in the nation, it is al ready c»ceded that if the cham pionship changes, the winner will have to defeat the Bens or the Trotteis Or both. i Owens May Seek Reinstatement As Amateur COLUMBUS, O., — Pointing to quick action in reinstating Hank Luisetti, former Stanford basket- ball star, Jesse Owens indicateI last week he may ask reinstate- fflGHLY TOUTED MORGAN FTVE BLITZED BY HIGH FLYING EAGLES In a fast game in which the high-flying imnt H6 .n umateur Md m«ke Eagles led throughout, the Mighty Morgan a ('omehack this spring as a mtni- •iii _ i -««■ t ber of Ohio State’s track team.
