Doxie Moore Announces Plans To Form Rival Pro Cage Loop LAFAYETTE, Ind., May 6 UP.— Doxie Moore said today that a rival of the National Basketball Association would be organized at Chicago May 13. Moore, formerly coach of the defunct Anderson Packers, said the only obstacle holding up formation of the new loop was a financial one. He said no franchises would be sold unless club owners give the assurance they could carry through the whole season. Representatives from at least a dozen cities were expected to attend the meeting, Moore said. Among them were officials of Denver, Sheboygan and Waterloo — the three clubs expelled from the NBA last month — and Anderson and St. Louis, two other NBA outfits which folded up this spring.
