Army’s TPlays To Give
Middie Line Acid Test
---- A. _ - -
gy JOHN F. CHANDLER
BALTIMORE. Nov. 24 —at—
vJv's great line, rated by many
li p best forward wall in collegiate
football today, will get its supreme
test when Army mets the Middies
a- Baltimore next week, but right
row the Annapolis coaches are con
cerned mainly with a little item
termed the T-formaiion.
Certain that his fine array of
backfield talent will be near top
form for the 45th annual service
classic. Comdr. Oscar E. Hagberg,
jfavy head coach, has ordered the
jailor B squad to shoot the T works
si his regulars, because they’ll see
plenty of its tricky intricacies when
Davis, Dale Hall, and the rest hit
(own December 2.
For that reason, Hagberg and
bis head line coach. Lieut. Comdr.
F, F, iRip) Miller, are paying spe
ral attention at the moment to de
fense. Hagberg said today it was
possible that Jim Carrington might
start at the left, or running guard,
spot in place of Jim Turner. Car
rington. at 190 pounds, is about 15
notches heavier than Turner and
otsides being more experienced, is
i better blocker although both have
seen plenty of action to date.
In eight games the Navy forwards
sve held their opponents to a net
gain of 301 yards from scrimmage,
at an average of approximately 37
id • vds per tilt. T’ve Tars pinned
r.Mr.vve marks on three opponents,
holding Georgia Tech to minus six,
Pennsylvania to minus 16. and Cor
frh to a minus 20 yards on the
grand.
Army's line has given up 464
vends on the ground, including a
irnnus 38 yards for the Villanova
g?me, for an average of 58 yards.
But in the air lanes, the West
Point defenses were slightly super
itr-547 yards against the Cadets,
cimDared with 675 against Navy
j>" eight opponents. Pittsburgh, with
"29 yards by air, was the onlv club
to give Lt. Col Earl fRedi Blaik’s
passed for 172 yards. Notre
Dime for 164 yards, and North Ca
rina Pre-Flight for 134 yards
gainst Na'-y. Notre Dame’s 94

’TEAR TO I '
ROYAL WELCOME
MIAMI, Fla., Nov. 24—LD—Twi
light Tear is going to get a royal
welcome—brass band and all—when
she reaches Hialeah race course
tomorrow to begin preparations for
a wint-- campaign which may
make racing history.
“Why not?” demanded Everett
Clay, Hialeah’s publicity director
who arranged the demonstration
unique for a thoroughbred. "She’s
the queen of the turf, isn’t she?”
The nation’s ranking three-vear
olc. and leading candidate for horse
of the year honors, will be gunning
this winter for Top Flight’s money
winning record of $275,900 — the
highest ever earned by a filly.
Twilight Tear’s sensational 1944
campaign h~.s brought her total win
nings to the $205,000 mark, and
she is to be entered in stake races
this season—including the $50,000
widener handicap—with purses high
enough to send her earnings above
Top Flight’s mark, if she can win
them all.
When the Calumet farm’s filly is
led out of the railroad car in which
she is being brought from Balti
more—where she defeated Devil Di
ver, her principal rival for the
horse of 1944 award—she will be
greeted by a huge banner with the
words: “Welcome. Susie.”
“Twilight Tear” is too poetic for
the boys around the barns, and they
call her “Susie."
Clay has arranged for the band
to play “Sweet Sue” and “If You
Knew Susie.”
But lest the welcome turn Susie’s
head. Turf Writer Charlie Gregg of
the Miami Herald suggested that
the musical program include the
“Vienna Life.”
Which ought to remind the Tear
of a race at New York last August
18. when she was beaten by an un
known filly named Vienna after

BULLDOGS ANXIOUS
TO COMPLETE YEAR
WITH WIN OVER VA.
i NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 24.—
11#—Spurred by the return to ac
tion ofa ace performers. Yale and
Virginia eagerly await their in
tersectional football fracas here
tomorrow with the Blis, anxious, to
end their first perfect campaign
since 1923 with a win, slight fav
orites. ,
Nominated for starting posts
were Yale's Mac Whiting, captain
and ace guard, and BuU Montano,
scrappy center, and Virginia s
Hank Walker,-brilliant end. News
of Whiting’s availability particu
larly was encouraging to the Blue,
who, although unbeaten and. un
tied in seven tilts, have missed
his inspiring leadership and savvy
since October 14 when he suffer
ed a broken leg.
Both clubs are strong defenslve
lv and have depended mainly on
ground attacks, punctured occa
sionally with aerials. Coach Frank
Murray of the Cavaliers, a native
born New Englander, believes
that his current outfit is the fast
est and the • best team he has
1 turned out in Charlottesville and
that includes his 19441 squad which
' dropped its only contest to the
■ Bulldogs. . ,
One of the brightest spots on
Virginia’s good record of five vic
tories, one defeat and a tie, is
the deadlock with North Caro
lina Pre-Flight, conqueror of Navy
and Duke. ^
There were more arrests during
the first six monlhs of 1943 for de
linquency among girls than f o i
the entire year of 1941. >

Blue Devils Tackle Tar Heels Today
SOUTHERN TITLE
TO BE AT STAKE
20.000 Are Expected To
Watch 56 - Year-Old
Feud’s Revival
CHAPEL HILL, N. C., Nov. 24.
W—Duke tackles the University
af North Carolina here tomorrow
with the Blue Devils’ hopes of a
Southern conference football cham
pionship riding on the outcome.
Upwards of 20,000 spectators are
expected to watch the kickoff at
2 o’clock in Kenan stadium. Duke,
victor over Georgia Tech, Wake
Forest and South Carolina in its
last three starts will be heavily
favored over Carolina, which.has
won only one game all season. Tar
Heel supporters, recognizing the
odds against them, recall that un
derdog Carolina teams have upset
the dope in past years and that
there is always a chance.
The Tar Heels haven’t won this
annual battle since 1940, although
they tied Duke in 1942. Their 56
year-rivalry began in 1888.
After routing Richmond in its
opener, Duke lost to Pennsylvania,
North Carolina Pre»Flight, Navy
and Army, then rallied to upset
Georgia Tech and smash then un
beaten Wake Forest and South
Carolina. Carolina edged out the
Cherry Point Marines but lost to
Wake Forest, Army, Georgia Tech,
South Carolina and Yale and play
ed a scoreless tie with william
and Mary. The Tar Heels put up a
tine battle in losing 6-13 to Yale
and will be at top form against
Duke.
The presence of Allan Eiger,
Iowa letterman last year and Bill
Voris, top scorer on the Army
plebe team of 1942, in the Carolina
backfield may help the Tar Heels.
Eiger transferred from Duke to
North Carolina in November along
with Thad Ellis and John Kerns,
linemen. Kerns will not be avail
able, having said he did not care
to play against his former team
mates.
Besides risking their conference
title chances, the Blue Devils also
will have at stake any possible
post-season bowl game invitations.
For several Duke Stars, including
Backs Tom Davis and Gordon Car
ver and Guard Ernest Knotts, the
game will be an opportunity to
further their bids for all-South
ern and possible all-America team
honors.
Probable lineups:
Pos.—Duke N. Carolina
LE—Jones .- Bauer
LT—Hardison.- Kraus
LG—Sink.Leatherman
C—Crowder . Walters
RG—Knotts -.Ellis
RT—Eisenberg - Smith

CONFERENCE TITLE
WITH WOLVERINES
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 24.—iff)—
The football machines of Ohio State
and Michigan meet here tomorrow
for the 41st time and never before
had there been so much at stake.
Although Ohio State and Michi
gan played their first game in 181)7
this will be the first time they ever
had the Big Ten championship
strictly between themselves. Ohio
State, unbeaten and untied in eight
games, can win the title by beat
ing or tying the Wolverines. Michi
gan, beaten only by Indiana, can
win’ the crown by defeating the
all-civilian Bucks.
Ohio State will have its perfect
record at stake and then there is
that little matter of a date in the
Rose Bowl on New Year's day. The
Rose Bowl is interested and Ohio
State definitely will accept if it
can win tomorrow, and if the
Big Ten would vote Sunday to lift
its ban on post-season games.
There has been no indication as
to whether Michigan would accept
a bowl bid, if it js offered, but
there is reason to believe the Wol
verines would be in line for the
invitation if they can hand the

Ray Walters — U. N. C.
Big Ray Walters, who is also co-captain in baseball at Carolina,
has his work cut out for the annual Duke classic at the Hill at 2 p. m.
Saturday. The 190-pound pivot man, who made the All-State squad at
Columbus, Ga., High, feeds the Tar Heel backs on offense and plugs
up the line on defense. He’s been a “60-minute man” when needed,
and he may be called on to pull the ironmen again Saturday. Tar Heel
students planned a big pep rally Friday night, and the largest crowd
of the year is expected today.

DOPESTERS PREDICT
FREE-SCORING DUEL
IN TECH-IRISH TILT
ATLANTA. Nov. 24.—(£>)— Geor
gia Tech’s Ramblin’ Wreck ruled
a slight favorite tonight to trim
Notre Dame in the final football
extravaganza of the Atlanta sea
son here tomorrow.
The Orange Bowl-bound engi
neers, defeated only by Duke this
season, will be playing against
the “T” formation for the first
time this year, but dopesters were
predicting a free-scoring battle
that may try the nerves of prob
ably 300,000 spectators.
Coach Ed McKeever’s Irish, who
lost to Navy and Army but made
a stout comeback last week against
Northwestern, will have a strong
array of backs to gallop against
Tech.
Marty Wendell is McKeever’s
choice to start in place of Gaspa
rella, Irish offensive star who was
injured in the Northwestern game.
Notre Dame's squad arrived in
Atlanta late today on a seven-hour
delayed train ride, and worked out
briefly on Grant Field.
Tech J;ook its final drill without
the guiding of Veteran Coach W. A.
iCAanut-i, wiivj
his home with a digestive disorder.
He was expected to be back on the
job by game time, however.
The Engineers were in good phy

THREE LEADING j
PORTLAND OPEN
Nelson, Shute, Gage Now
Tied For First
Place
PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 24.—(J1)—
Two former national champions,!
Byron Nelson, Toledo. O., and Den
ny Shute, Akron, O., and Slim.
Jack Gage of Santa Barbara
shared a three - way temporary;
tie .today when nearly half the field j
had checked in with second round j
scores of the 72 - hole Portland!
open golf tournament. The trio
posted 36 - hole totals of 147.
Gage, former California state
amateur title holder recently turn
ed professional, banged a pair of
36s to equal par for the Portland
club course. It gave him part of
the lead with two veteran not
ables of the links—Shute, former
Biitish open and national P. G. A.
title winner, and Nelson, an ex
U. S. open and P. G. A. top man.
Nelson, high money winner of the
year, toured the course in 35-39
for a 74, a scor equalled by Shute i
with a 36-38
It appeared unlikely, however,
the 147 score would stand as low.
Sam Snead, Hot Spring, Va., star
ana first day leader with a two
under par 70, was holding his own.1
He tacked up a 36 on the outgo
ing par 35 nine today.
The soggy course, especially the
greens, and a brief rain troubled
the shotmakers.
Three others were grouped in
second position with two round
scores of 148. They were George
jp azio, pme vaney, in. j., wnuse
34-37—71 today was the best of the
early rounds; Mark Fry, Oakland,
Calif., and Harold West, Portland’s
driving professional.
Fazio lopped six strokes off his
first round effort while Fry added
another 74. West, who surprised
with a par 72 yesterday, went up
to a 76.
Harold McSpaden, Philadelphia,
one of the big tournament favorites
virtually knocked himself out of a
chance to pick up an important
pay off in the $15,500 war bonds
tournament. He needed 39-37—76 to
get around today, having putting
mistues on many greens, and post
ed a 36 - hole total of 151.
