(jKIU UrrtNblVfc PLAY STRESSED Present Trend Noted By Sports Writers In As sociated Press Survey By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK, Dec. 17.——The most important current trend in sports is the increasing emphasis on offense in football, declared the grateful sports writers of the country in replying to the annual Associated Press poll. All over the nation in the season just past both the college and the professional elevens cut loose in breathless fashion when they had the ball and rolled up some amaz ing scores, capped off by the 73 to 0 walloping given Washington by the Chicago Bears in their play-off for the pro title. The scoreless tie, once the plague Df all concerned, is becoming in creasingly' rare, it was pointed out by many of the 72 contributors of the poll. If there is anything worse than paying $3.30 to watch a cou ple of teams wallow around score tessly for an hour it probably lies in trying to peck out a column of copy about same in the chill dusk. • So the experts are happy about it, too. There probably is a direct, con lection between this trend and an ather noted by the contributors— , increased interest and attendance at professional sports events, espe- i :ially football. Eight w r i te r s thought this drift toward the money game was the most signifi- ( :ant of all. The pros can’t cash in >n “moral victories.” They need : scores and real victories, so they :ut loose and take enormous chances and give the customers ' i show every time. Seven voters detected a growing joom in bowling, with women turn ng increasingly to the indoor sport, while the same number attached , importance to a scattering de-em ihasis in college football, with Yale , ihe most striking example. Five experts saw a trend toward ] more and more night baseball in the , pig leagues, though some of them i marked their ballots prior to last , week’s convention at Chicago, where , he magnates voted to hold each club < o seven noctural contests. The same number thought they j saw professional boxing on the c vane, except in this city and a few i others. Three each pointed out that ] minor league baseball was doing : rery poorly, especially in the south west, and that the balance of college : football power appeared to be swing- ■ ng to the east. The latter trio of txperts do not, of course, live in the mid-west. ' Other trends noted by more than pne observer included the growth of popularity of basketball; the increas ing number of women stars turning professional, with particular refer ence to Patty Berg and Alice Marble, ind the growing use of the forward ' pass as a scoring device. 1 Jurges To Be Discharged From N. Y. Hospital Today NEW YORK, Dec. 17.—(iP)—Bill Jurges, New York Giants’ short stop who has been undergoing treatment at a hospital since Dec. 7 for an injury suffered last sum mer when he was struck on the head by a pitched ball, will be discharged tomorrow, it was an nounced tonight. Dr. J. Lawrence Pool said the report on Jurges’ condition was favorable but that he was unable to state definitely whether Jurges will be able to play next season.

R. Muzum of Stanley, Wis., in a contest conducted by a midwestern coaches’ ; ublication As Muzum tells it, Neillsville, Wis., high was forced to kick from behind its own' goal line in the ?ame with Stanley. The punter stood deep in his own end zone and got off a poor boot that squirt ad high into the air and went “Corrigan” in a stiff wind. Earl Maves, Stanley quarter oack, snagged the ball on the one yard line and a short step took aim across the goal line for the :ally. The kick was not blocked. Top prize in the skirmish for the best athletic oddity went to Gilbert Jeffrey, principal of the Corning, Kas., school, who wrote 3f a basket sunk from 70 feet iown the floor. __ Farley, a member of the Corning school five, was guarding the opponents’ basket with his club protecting a one-point lead during the final 15 seconds. He caught a rebound and, unable to get the ball away, threw a :wo-handed backward pass over 3is head. The ball sailed 70 feet and fell through the Corning hoop without touching the net. The chap who picked Ohio State’s negro end, Charles Anderson, on his Swedish all-America football team, how has company. The National Civic league, Amer ican-Italian luncheon group annual ly selects its all star team with membership restricted to Italians. At end on the 1940 aggregation it placed Steve Gergeni of St. Bene dict’s college—whose parents are German. Jack Gardner, the former South ern California basketball 'Adonis who now coaches that sport at Kansas State, thinks it is quite correct to declare ineligible an athlete who is failing in his aca demic work. But he thinks the reverse is true, too, and a student “failing” in basketball or football shouldn’t be permitted to take a chemistry final until he’s caught up with his work in sports. “I think athletics ar-- as edu cational as studies and I don’t believe they should be treated dif ferently,” he explains. Ival Goodman, the Oklahoman who helped bat the Cincinnati Reds to the National league and world series titles, donated one tenth of his salary to a church in Shawnee Okla. His gift approximates $100 a month. 5 Paul Brown Mentioned As Ohio State Mentor Massillon High School Miracle Man On List Of Applicants For Schmidt’s Job COLUMBUS, O., Dec. 17._(/P)_ \ miracle man of scholastic foot aall gained prominent attention tonight in speculation over a suc cessor to Head Coach Francis A. Schmidt at Ohio State university. He’s Paul Brown, who acts more ike a classroom teacher than the mentor of a Massillon, O., team! that has lost only one game out of 50 in the last six years. Colorful i and precision-like, his elevens j lave won him national recogni tion and attracted more fans than were drawn by any college team n Ohio except Ohio State. ^ Brown was described by the Cleveland News as the “probable successor” to Schmidt, who re signed Monday along with his en ire coaching staff in the midst of a university investigaton of the :oachng situation which followed Dhio's worst season in 15 years. University spokesmen, pointing >ut that all talk of a new coach at this time was “purely specula tion.” said Brown as well as a lalf-d o z 3 n outstanding coaches would be considered. Brown, who was here two days ast week, said at Massillon that le had talked with alumni repre ;entatives ajjout the job, but had lot contacted “anyone in authori V M “I would be definitely interested n receiving an offer to coach at Dhio State,” he said, adding that t would be “the fulfillment of a ife-time ambition.” A coach who stresses perfection in 'very detail, Brown puts on the field i team that sparkles with speed and •lever ball-handling—a type of play avored by Ohio fans, who turned ait in record numbers to see razzle lazzle performances of Schmidt's earns. Most prominently mentioned bo lides Brown were Jock Sutherland, ormer Pitt coach; Earl Black of Dartmouth, Buck Shaw of Santa llara, Wesley Pesler of Connecticut Vesleyan, Marty Karow of Texas A. t M. and Earl Martineau of Miclii- 1 ;an. Pesler and Karow are former Dhio stars. Athletic Director L. W. St. John s expected to see most of the candi- 1 ates at the national football coaches’ neeting in New York Dec. 30-31 and irobably will not recommend t-> the thletic board a candidate until then. St. John is understood to favor a •oung man for the post, which Schmidt had held seven years. Selection of a coach is expected to >e made within the next month in irder to give the new man an oppor unity of mapping plans for spring ootball practice. COLD WORKOUT LINCOLN, Neb.

The camouflaged northern po sition reported fallen to the Greeks was protected, he added, by elabo rate barbed wire barricades through which Greek infantry burst to take "a number of prisoners, including officers.” Greek soldiers battling through snow-clogged passes were reported closing in from two directions on the last Italian-held mountain stronghold standing between them and the Adriatic port of Valona. In this snowy setting, the Greeks acknowledged most of the opera dons had been slowed down to ocal encounters, but said never theless that their forces had re aulsed seven violent Italian count ar-attacks to make new advances.

Captain James Byrd, of the Brook lyn Blue Devils, and Captain Mar shall Boney, of the Castle Street Bears, expect to have their respective outfits in top condition for the con test. Tickets for the game went on sale at various places in the city yester day.

White football fans may secure tickets from several downtown loca tions or from members 'of the city police force. All proceeds from the game will go to the Empty Stocking fund. In addition to an anticipated keen rivalry on the gridiron between ti e two teams, there is also present the rivalry that has existed for years be tween the two sections of the city. Reserved seats for both white and rnlnred fans mav he senirerh WAR INTERPRETIVE (Continued from Page One) rumors from Berne that the split was caused by Laval’s acceptance and Marshal Petain’s rejection of a German demand to use French Mediterranean ports to send Nazi Legions to Egypt or Libya. Never Realistic Those rumors have never seemed realistic, however. Haul ing a German army from French ports to any trans-Mediterranean destination through the British blockade would be a considerable task. The distance would be dou ble that from ports in southern (taly. That the Nazi high com mand actually contemplated help ing Mussolini by either route seems incredible. But acquisition of the remnants pf France’s once mighty fleet could be an important asset for the Nazis if they attempt to invade England. Lord Beaverbrook, British air pro duction minister, predicted that such an attempt would be made pefore spring, “by land and sea, put principally by air.” If that prediction is based on ac curate knowledge of German plans, it means that Nazi war ef forts must be concentrated in the west and not dissipated in Albania pr across the Mediterranean in Italian Libya. German air power, U-boats or surface warships could pot be spared fro?* the main job pf smashing England at home. t^an rsoi spare snips Neither can Britain spare ships jf air or sea for major offensive sperations in the east if she is :acing such an attack as Lord Beaverbrook pictures. She already las riskeci much to assemble the strength for the smashing blow liven Italy in Egypt. The recent •ising toll of British tonnage losses n the north Atlantic can be at ributed in part to the shifting of 3ritish naval tonnage to the east. Italian striking power from Lib ra, back into which her army has leen thrown in disorder, is now rippled. It may never be regained I hrough even a diminished British ea blockade. It seems quite like y, if Lord Beaverbrook spoke the xpectation of his governmment, bat orders recalling much British aval tonnage home from the Med terranean already have been for mula ted. Putting the French fleet into Jerman and Italian hands for po ential action in the Mediterranean /ould be a grave complication for Iritain. It would force her to keep substantial part of her sea power n the east during any Nazzi effort o destroy England through in asion. . 1 ’EDDLER HALF SIGHT ANYWAY BLOOMINGTON, Ind.

The change was made at the request of the Star-News Empty Stocking fund, which will be us ing the armory Friday for the wrapping of Christmas packages. Both cage outfits here went through their daily drills at the Armory yesterday in preparation for the games. CALLS ON EMPTY STOCKING GREAT (Continued from Page One) and those in charge again stressed the fact that today at 6 p. m. is the deadline for filing applications for gifts. Last year more than 4,000 children were taken care of by the fund amounting to approximately $2,000, which cost an average of 50 cents per child. With more than 2,500 applications already received and many more ex pected to come in today, about twice the total of the fund at present is needed to take care of all appeals. Toys will be available at the arm ory at 814 Market street this year in stead of in the basement of the post office building. Those who have se cured tickets may present them and get the gifts on Christmas Eve Day, December 24.

At the left side of the wall they lost more than they gaine,; against All-America End Btidd El rod, John Tripson and Hunter Cor hern, second All-America guard. Those seven stalwarts even drew praise today from Coach Allyn Me Keen, who broke a long-standing tra dition against patting his men on the back before they are finished with competition. “I think it’s the best line in the Southeastern Conference," he declar ed, “and I wouldn't swap it for any in the country.” The first line averages 1!)7 pounds and the second 191, both rather light for modern big-time football. They'll be giving 10 pounds or more to the man to the Hoya forwards. However, the Maroons are accus tomed to facing bigger men. Witness the manner in which they pushed the ponderous Alabama team around. A good indication of the calibre of State’s line as a whole is in the dif ference of opinion about individual ability. Although Elrod is an All-America and Corhern on the second All America, there are many in Missis sippi who contend Guy McDowell • a better guard than Corhern and Tripson is the best lineman on the squad.

IS DURABLE TEAM Present Outfit That Meets Aggies In Cotton Bowl Looks Like 1937 Iron Men DALLAS, Tex., Dec. 17.—W— Thirteen geared-up Texas univer sity football players derailed Texas A. and M. a few days ago. Now comes Fordham’s “four teen,” a little group cast in iron and patterned after its famed “blocks of granite” predecessors, to make the same challenge in the sold-out Cotton bowl on New Year’s day. Not quite as illustrious as the publicized 1937 iron men, but a trifle more durable is the club Sleepy Jim Crowley will bring down from Manhattan to argue with the rulers of the southwest. It was possible for a Fordham football player to play 480 minutes during the great season just closed. Of that possible playing time, Capt. Louis de Filippo, a partly bald deadpan center who does his scrimmaging in a base ball cap, missed only ten minutes. From de Filippo’s 470 minutes, it goes like this through the first —and only—string: Tackle Joe Ungerer, 463 min utes; sophomore Steve Filipowicz, the brilliant passing and running back, 463; half back Jim Blumen stock, 461; sophomore end Jim Lansing, 460; end Vincent Denne ry, 458; guard, Lawrence Sartori, 450; tackle John Kuzman, 3 9 8; guard Thomas Bennett, 394; half back Len Eshmont, one of the finest ball luggers in the east, 380; quarterback Jim Noble, -340—but he missed the Purdue and New York university games with in juries. A couple of reserve tackles, Steve Hudacek and Alex Santilli, managed to nose into the lineup occasionally, as does Charlie Pierce, the brother of assistant Coach Pat Pierce and a member of those seven blocks of granite back in ’37. Too, soph Ed Shed losky and Claude Pieculewicz, gets brief workouts in the backfield when things are going Fordham’s way.
