Heh? Heh? Heh. Mr. Waldorf, you

well for us.

proud of the way my boys came
back in the second half, without
Bill Dellastatious, who was hurt in
the second quarter.
Charley Bachman, Michigan
State—They took the second half
away from us simply because we
don’t have reserves to cope with a
team of Missouri’s caliber. The

Any comment, Lieutenant?
Lt. John Gregg, Norman Navy
Zoomers—We played a fine ball
club, and Bobby Fenimore is all

field and two tough breaks hurt the
Aggies chances.
Jim Lookabagh, Oklahoma Ag

because of the tough collegiate

To Aid ‘Caution Drive*
The Seaboard Air Line Railway
has appealed to the Board of Coun
ty Commissioners to exert every
possible effort to have people ex
ercise greater caution in crossing
railroad tracks.
T. W. Parsons, assistant general
manager, has issued a warning
that “many accidents are caused
by train striking tractors, grading
machines, ditchers and other ma
chines which should see that the
way is clear before going on the
crossings. Some road machines in
crossing railroad tracks cover the
rails with dirt, frequently resulting
in accidents to trains. Operators
of these machines should be in
structed to clear off the rails after
passing over the tracks.”
He goes on to thank the board
for “its great work in the protec
tion of school children.”

BUT WAR BONDS AND STAMPS
RUTGERS SEIZED
AMERICAN GRID’S
INITIAL VICTORY
Princeton Was Consistent
Winner Over Rutgers
In Years Following
By FRITZ HOWELL
NEW YORK, Nov. 6.—(^-In
tercollegiate football in America
observed its 75th birthday anniver
sary today.
On November 6, 1869, at New
Brunswick, N. J., - Princeton and
Rutzers players, 25 to a side, dis
carded their hats, coats and vests,
twisted their suspenders into belts,
and proceeded to do battle.
Rutgers won the historic inau
gural, six goals to four, but just
seven days later the Princetons
turned the tables and beat Rutgers
six goals to none. From that day
until 1938, Princeton won every
game between the two schools,
Rutgers finally winning 20-18, on
Nov. 18.
This season Princeton opens its
abbreviated schedule Saturday
against Muhlenberg, while Rut
gers’ war-time slate calls for two
games against both Lafayette and
Lehigh.
Princeton, in its opener against
Rutgers just after the Civil war,
introduced what is now' the college
cheer. The players, not the fans,
did the vocalizing, and the yell
was copied from that used by New
York’s seventh regiment in the
war between the states.
Tales of the inaugural disclose
that the ball was “of a miniature
size, made of rnhher. snH snh
ject to frequent repairs. It was a
game of kicking the ball and bat
ting it with the hand. Carrying
j the ball was forbidden. A point
J was called a goal, made when the
; ball was sent between goal posts.
I There was no cross bar.”
When details of the Princeton
! Rutgers game were wafted around,
eastern seaboard undergraduates
S were intrigued. Columbia put a
| team together, and in 1870 played
both Princeton and Rutgers. There
was no games in 1871, but Yale
came in 1872 to beat Columbia 3
to 0.
Cornell was next, in 1873, and
■tried to schedule a game with
Michigan, to be played at Cleve
land with 30 men to a side. But
President White of Cornell ousted
the idea with:
“I will not permit 30 men to
travel 400 miles merely to agitate
a bag of wind.”
In 1938, when Rutgers defeated
Princeton for the first time since
football’s birth, the late Judge
George Hall Large of Flemington,
N. J., last survivor of the first
| Rutgers team, was present at the
! triumph. That same day William
Preston Lane of Hagerstown, Md.,
last survivor of Princeton’s first
team, died.
A couple of years ago Yale un
covered a picture of its great 1889
team on which Amos Alonzo Stagg
was All-America end. The team
was lined up exactly as in today’s
most popular offensive set-up—
the ”T” formation. Maybe football
hasn’t changed so much at that.

POSTWAR SPORTS
PLANS PROPOSED
BY STUHLDREHER
By JERRY LISKA
CHICAGO. Nov. 6.—m- Harry
Stuhldreher, Wisconsin football
coach and quarterback of Notre
Dame’s famed Four Horsemen
proposed today that a full pro
gram of American athletics be in
stalled in postwar Europe as a
means to a lasting peace.
Stuhldreher, addressing the
Chicago Wailing Wall meeting, as
serted that a “democratic educa
tion” of hate-instilled Nazi youtli
could best be accomplished by
versing them in American sports.
He recommended that senior and
junior sports divisions, composed
of intercollegiate and interscholas
tic athletes respectively be ship
ped overseas immediately after
the war and drilled by soldier ath
letes available in an army of oc
cupation.
‘‘Since we probably will have to
police the world,” Stuhldreher de
clared, ‘‘we can work immeasura
bly toward a lasting peace at the
same time by letting foreign youth
grasp our democratic way of think
ing on the athletic field.”
He suggested that American
teams in all types of sports event
ually might engage European
teams in a regular series of com
petition similar to the Olympic
games.
“We can talk about educating
European youth in every social
field there is.” he declared, ‘‘but
the best way to end bloody period
ical conflicts, is to make youth
all over the world think the same
way—in terms of sportsmanship
and clean competion.
“If war-minded nations would
fight their battles on Saturday af
ternoons on the athletic field, we’d
have none of this confounded war
mess.”
Stuhldreher, also athletic direc
tor at Wisconsin, predicted in
tercollegiate sports would boom
from a standpoint of participation
after the war.
Elmer Layden, commissioner of
the National football league said
compulsory physical education,
rather than compulsory military
training, should be the aim of Am
erica after the war.

PRISONER OF WAR

If Cadets Topple Irish
A Habit Will Be Broken
By HAROLD CLAASSEN
NEW YORK, Nov. 6.—UP)—Notre
Dame has lost to both Army and
Navy in the same season. Irish
Coach Ed McKeever, whose lads
were dunked by Navy Saturday,
relayed to New York football writ
ers today the warning that his
team has no intention of break
ing the habit in this week’s strug
gle with the Cadets at Yankee
stadium.
Speaking from South Bend, Jnd.,
by telephone to the scribes at
their weekly knife and fork soiree,
McKeever promised his eleven
would “Up for Army” and that
“Navy is one of the finest college
football teams I ever have seen.”
Later, Walter Kennedy, Notre
Dame tub-thumper who appeared
before the writers in person, said
two lineup changes would be made
for Saturday with Frank Syzman
ski, 193 second-string canter, start
ing at the pivot post and either
Bill Chandler or Jim Brennan per
forming at left half.
Syzmanski became eligible today
after a brief service career since
! last season. Either Chandler oi
Brennan will start in the slot va
cated by the transfer of George
Terlep, a V-12 athlete.
Capt. Johnny Buckler, one-time
Cadet halfback, represented the
Army coaching staff at the debate
and characterized this year’s
squad “untested except for the
Duke game and in that one we
stumbled around like an old maic
on a skating pond.”
“Unfortunately,” Buckler added,
“none of the teams we met sc
far had the personnel to make
men out of our boys. Maybe we
will become of age Saturday.”
There’s no doubt that Army wil
attempt to increase the 19-poinl
victory margin which the Middies
plastered upon the Irish in las'
week’s 32 to 13 affair.
Army trimmed Duke, 27 to 7,
after Navy had polished off the
Carolina Blue Devils, 7 to 0. II
the Cadets maintain that ratio at
Notre Dame’s expense it will be
the worst defeat in 25 years for
the Irish—wiping out the 27 to t
total piled up by the 1925 Army
team. Duke is the only commor
foe of the two service teams tc
date.
However, Army hasn’t scored or
Notre Dame since 1938 and hasn’t
defeated the Irish since 1931.
Promoter Causey And
Johnny Long Reminisce
Carrier Days
Grappler Johnny Long and Pro
moter Bert Causey will be hosts
Friday night to the carrier boys
of the Star-News, and the news
paper game is an old one to them
both.
“Sure, I used to be a news boy,”
asserts 'Johnny Long. “When I
was a boy down in Florida, I used
to sell papers. This was my first
job, and I know what it means
to get up before day and carry a
route.”
Promoter Causey was a carrier
boy in his youth tor, the Greensboro
Daily News,, which was his home
town newspaper.
The Star-News carrier boys at
the invitation of Promoter Causey
and Grappler Long, will be the
guest at Friday night’s all-star
wrestling show, featuring Daffy
Don Lee, the scientific grunt and
groan specialist of Armarillo, Tex
as, who will be in the ring for an
other crack at Johnny Long, the
favorite of local mat followers.
The winner must take two out of
three falls within 75 minutes.
A new-comer to the local arena
Friday night will be Jack Devault
of Knoxville, Tenn., who will meet
another big Texas bruiser, Jack
O’Brien, from Dallas. This is a
tough assignment for the new -
comer, but he is confident and
seems certain that he will lick the
O'Brien without any trouble.
The weather man has turned in
a report of some “wrestling wea
ther,” and a capacity house is an
ticipated.
Choice seats went on sale yes
terday at the Orton hotel and pa
trons are advised to make purchas
es as soon as possible.
LEGION PLANS
ARMISTICE DAY
Armistice day celebration of Post
No. 10, American Legion, have
been tempered by World War 11,
and members of the post have
pledged “all that we have, all that
we are, and all that we hope to be
towards the prosecution of'this
war to a successful conclusion and
to an enduring peace afterwards,”
it was announced last night by Nor
wood S. Westbrook, post commcn
der.
The highlight of Saturday’s pro
gram is an address at City Hail at
11 a.m. by June Rose of Greenville,
past department commander, who
is superintendent of education in
Pitt county.
At 1 p.m. all legionnaires are
invited to a barbecue dinner at the
Legion stadium. At 9 p.m. there
will be a dance at the new Legion
home, Third and Dock sts., and all
legionnaires, auxiliary members
and their lady friends are invited.
It was pointed out by Comman
der Westbrook that considerable
revenue is needed to maintain the
home, and most of it must come
from the canteen, which is open
each week day from 11:30 a.m.
until 11 p.m., on Saturdays from
11 a.m. until midnight and from
1 p.m. until 10 p.m. each Sunday.
Regular post meeting has been
scheduled for Thursday night at 8
o’clock at the Legion home.

Deacons Get Hard Drill,
Duke Tackle Injured,
Tar Heels Busy
Wake Forest’s undefeated Dea- ]
;ons today started preparations (
ior their hardest test of the sea
son—against Duke in Durham on ,
Saturday afternoon.
Coach Peahead Walker sent his,
:harges through a hard practice
session and warned his players
hey will have to improve on last
Saturday’s play if they are going
;o get by the Blue Devils. The
Deacs defeated Clemson, 13-7, but
at times their play seemed list
less.
No injuries were s»!ired against
the Tigers, and the Deacs should
be at top strength for the Duke
game. Wake Forest has successive
decisions over North Carolina,
Georgia, Maryland, VMI, N. C.
State, Miami, and Clemson.
TWO DEVILS IN DOUBT
The status of two regulars was
in doubt and .. third started was
on the ailing list as the Blue Dev
ils of Duke university today launch
ed preparations for the all-impor
tant clash with Wake Forest’s un
beaten and untied Demon Deacons
in Duke stadium Saturday after
norm at 2 n’rlnrk
Frank Irwin, husky tackle, came
out of the Georgia, Tech tussle
with a badly bruised ankle and
didn’t dress for today’s light work
out, while John Krisza, blocking
back, nursed a shoulder injury
and didn’t take part in the drill
although he was dressed.
The third regular hurt in Duke’s
19-13 upset over Tech Saturday
was Center John Crowder, who
twisted his ankle. Crowder was
back out for practice this after
noon, however, and taking things
easy.
With several of the players
missing the workout because of
classes the Duke cocahing staff
sent the squad through a light ses
sion and pointed out mistakes
which cropped up in Saturday’s
hard-fought game with the Geor
gians.
WORK LIGHTLY
North Carolina’s regulars who
battled South Carolina to 6-0 Sat
urday, worked lightly today, but
Coach Gene McEver scrimmaged
his 20-odd new men and uncov
ered several likely prospects for
the William and Mary scrap Sat
urday, which is rated another toss
up.
Bill Voris,- who played for the
Army Plebes in 1942, and Ted
Hazelwood, 220-pound fullback
from the Purdue Frosh, showed
-I
3ts of drive. Bob Oliphant from ,
-cwthwest Louisiana also display- |
d much speed at wing, while Re- ,
