Army And Navy Battle Today In Game Of The Year!
SPORTS TRAIL Bv WHITNEY MARTIN VFW ynRK Dec. l.—UP)—We’d like to have 9-29 ears for a few minutes tomorrow afternoon if that added wing wead would enable us to catch the pre-game pep talks m the locker rooms of the Army and Navy teams. . Probably we’d be disappointed, though, as this is one game before which the players need a pep talk about as as they need four thumbs, and all the gabbing m the , t _r»Pi onOP thf* Situa-^ ——————— tion one bit. The boys already are saturated with spirit and incentive and at the moment the bigges thing in their lives is winning tha1 ball game. It is a mistake to say that one team has more incentive than the other; that Army is more deter mined because of a five - year victory drought or that Navy is needled more because of resent ment at being made the underdog. The boys of both teams want to win this one equally badly, and they know they are up against op position that will test them to the limit. We've always been a little skep tical of those “win this one for dear old Butch’’ stories that come to light years after a game and of the cute tricks the coaches are reported to have employed to get their boys geared up. Once the kids get out on that field and are breathing in the face of a hulking lineman or have . their ribs playing xylophone solos as a result of rousing tackles or blocks they’re too busy to think of dear old Butch or the fact the coach had just read a wire from a famous old grad of ’07 who knows the team won’t let old Ab Normal down. There are occasions, naturally, when a few well - chosen words before a game might be needed. This is particularly true when the boys have been reading how good they are and that they can take the day’s opponent, which hasn’t won a game since Old Main burned down, without exerting themselves unduly. But we don’t think it would make a particle of difference in how the game will be played ti^norrow if Gen. Eisenhower and Admiral Hal sey should walk into the Army and Navy dressing rooms, respective ly, before the contest and tell the boys to do their best for the honor of their respective branches of serv ice. Those boys are going out there and do their gol-durned best if no body comes around to see them be fore the game but the locker room attendant. They know what is at stake, and what they are facing and must do to win. That’s all that’s necessary. We have an idea both Comdr. Oscar Hagberg and Col. Earl Blaik, the respective coaches, will just quietly amble around, talking cas ually to the boys and giving last minute instructions, and that when the knock finally is heard at the door, they'll just say: “All right, boys. Time to go.” Notre Dame-Great Lakes Runner Up To Big Game NEW YORK, Dec. 1.—<-?)—Army and Navy dominate the football pro gram on the last Saturday of the 1944 season but a few scattered games, mostly in the South, form a backdrop for the clash of the No. 1 and No. 2 elevens in Baltimore. ..While the unbeaten - untied ca dets are attempting to clinch the mythical National title, secondary billing probably belongs to the Notre Dame-Great Lakes battle aft South Bend, Ind. i The Irish, beaten only by Army and Navy, and the Sailors, stopped only by Ohio State's powerhouse dnd tied by Illinois, won’t attract as much attention as they did in 1943 when Great Lakes turned in the big upset of the campaign with a 19-14 victory. However, the South Bend clash may cause a mild shuf fling of the national ratings as Notre Dame ranks ninth and the Sailors twenlfth.

War Bond Buyers, Vets And Notables In Crowd Cadets Arrive In Baltimore For Final Workout Before Game By FRITZ HOWELL BALTIMORE, Dec. 1.—(fP) —The gridiron game of the year—tomorrow’s 45th meet ing of Army and Navy — loomed today as a colorful conglomeration of punts, pas ses, pomp and pageantry. Unbeaten point - a - minute Army, which makes its final bid for the national laurels in municipal stadium, arrived today for a short workout on the newly-sodded field, and the football fever which has gripped the town for more than a week hit a new high. Navy arrives tomorrow, just be fore the 2 p. m. kickoff, hoping to run its victory string over the /''i _ j _ x _ x — _x__i_i_x __t-_x is slated to be the most disting uished crowd in the game’s illus trious history. Sandwiched in the throng of 70, 000 will be some 25,000 War Bond buyers, at least three members of President Roosevelt’s cabinet, a host of high-ranking Army and Navy officials, and a group of GI Joes, sailors and Coast Guards men who lost arms or legs in the combot zones of World War II. The war-wounded men will be guests of the Naval and Military Academies, and will come from service hospitals in the Eastern area. Also on hand will be the full regiment of blue-bedecked Middies and the gray-garbed Cadet corps. The Army squad of 34, coached by Col. Earl (Red) Blaik, retired to Gilman country school in sub urban Baltimore for the night af ter running through a short warm up session at the stadium, where an Army team hasn’t appeared since 1924 when Capt. Ed Garbisch kicked four field goals to beat Navy 12 to 0. The game, despite the 14-point edge conceded Army by the bet ting boys, was expected to be a tough, rugged scrap. Navy’s stone wall line has forced three opponents into the minus-yardage division this year, and the Army’s fleet backs were slated for trou ble against that first line of de ARMY MIGHT PLAY LATE GRID GAMES WASHINGTON, Dec. 1— (ffl — Things look rather favorable for Army football teams to receive permission to play post-season games, the War Department said today. The "proposition is still in the mill,” a spokesman said, and an announcement is "about ready to be made.” Both the Navy and Army have been flooded with requests for additional games by such outstand ing service teams as Army’s Ran dolph Field in Texas, and Navy’s Bainbridge. Md., training eleven. While the Army has indicated all along that it probably will grant permission to play such games, the Navy says its regulations prohi biting further play will stand. Navy’s position apparently pre cludes a widely-sought meeting oi Randolph Field ana »ainonage, both undefeated, for the service forces championship. But a favorable decision by the War Department would enable Randolph Field, March Field in California, Second A i r Force in Colorado, Third Air Force in North Carolina and other strong Army teams to play post-season and bowl games.

Whether the score would stand as the lowest of the round was problematical. Less than half the field of 148 starters had completed their round at the time. Snead, winner of the Portland Open last week, blew a chance to hold the undisputed lead when he chalked up bogies on the last two holes. He missed a three - foot putt on the 17th and an eight-footer on the final hole, costing him a sub par 70. The Virginian was scramb ling during the round.

Army is credited with the more versatile backs, Navy the more ex perienced line — a situation which could provide for any kind of a game and any kind of a score. But the forecast that the Miadies will win is based on the belief that Don Whitmire, Navy’s 215 - pound left tackle, will be the outstanding man on the field. Closing the season in a hurry (record to date; 244 wins, 58 de feats for .808) Georgia Tech over Georgia: the rivalry will be every bit as intense as in the service clash with the En gineers, Orange - Bowl bound, win ning after a rugged battle. Notre Dame over Great Lakes: the final 10 seconds of last year’s unexpected Irish defeat has been a year-long nightmare at South Bend. Oklahoma over Nebraska: The Sooners clinched their second straight big six crown. Texas Christian over Southern Methodist: the TCU revival to car ry one for another game at least. Tulane over Louisiana State: com parative scores indicate the game is a toss up. Virginia over North Carolina: Ed Duda and Jim Fahey make the difference. Bice over Southwestern: the Owls to close a spotty season with a tri umph. Sunday’s games: Bainbridge over Maxwell Field; Fort Pierce over Third Air Force. . .- ■ - ■ ■ !
