The Middies will be pulling together after airing their internal difficulties but the Irish can pull too, and push at the same time. Notre Dame.

Texas A. and M. vs. Arkansas —A tough one in that goofy South west Conference race where all sorts of things happen. Texas A. and M.

Wilson Cyclones Crush Wildcats, 33-14 x ___ ^ FUMBLES COSTLY TO ’CAT ELEVEN IN LOOP AF Y Sykes and Rogers Score Touchdowns For Wil mington Gridders Outfought and outclassed by a light but fast Wilson eleven, led by little Robert Overman and Spurgeon Speight, the New Han over Wildcats went down to a crushing defeat to the tune of 33-14 last night in Wilson. Apparently inspired by a desire to trim their former mentor, Coach Leon Brogden, the Cyclones took advantage of every, break and showed scoring power each time they got within striking distance of pay territory. Wilmington fought all the way and occasionally ignited the scor ing spark, exhibiting brilliant foot ball. Plagued by fumbleitis all season, the ’Cats ran true to form against the Cyclones, committing three muffs, all of which proved costly to the Wilmingtonians. Rogers had his first kick of the season blocked late in the final quarter, Wilson taking possession and seconds later going over for the final marker of the game. Wilson kicked off first to the New Hanover 12 where Sykes was stopped. Punting back immediate ly, Rogers got one off to the Wil mington 40 yard stripe which was returned by Overman to the New Hanover 33. After failing to gain on two rush ing attempts, Overman kicked to the 19 where Symmes fumbled with Wilson recovering the ball on the Wilmington 27. Overman smashed through the line from that point to go over on a beautiful run. The try for the extra point was fumbled. The score came when the game was only six minutes old. Wilson kicked off again to Wil mington to the 25 with the return going to the 35. On the first play, Piner fumbled with Switzer recov ering for Wilson at that point. On the first down, Clark took the ball to the ’Cats 25 and after three plays which netted no yardage, Moore passed to Clark who was standing in the clear in the end zone. The kick for the extra point was good and the half ended shortly afterward with the score standing 13-0 for Wilson. The third quarter was a ding dong affair with neither team show ing any particular advantage until the Wildcats began a 67 yard drive sparked by Sykes, Bannerman and Rogers which went to the Wflson 6 yard line before bogging down. Wilson took ovr at that point and kicked to her own 33 with the re turn back to the 23. Not to be de nied the 'Cats turned on the pow er and on the first play Rogers went to the 14. Piner then made it first down on the five-and-one half yard line as the quarter end ed. in tne first piay or me lourtn chukker, Sykes swet end to score. Barefoot’s try for the extra point was good and the score stood 13-7 for Wilson. Wilson took the New Hanover kickoff on the 33 where the ball was downed. After three tries fail ed to gain, the Cyclones kicked to Sykes on the Wilmington 35 who fumbled the ball, Speight recovering for Wilson at that point. Two plays later Clark passed 20 yards to Speight, who with no one around, went 15 more to cross the goal line standing up. The try for the extra point was no good and the Cyclones leading 33-14. Wilson kicked off to Hanson, sub stituting for Bannerman, on tlfc New Hanover 33, where the ball was downed. Exploding suddenly on a bril liantly executed play, Sykes receiv ed the pass from center, leaping high into the air to rocket a 35 yard heave to Rogers, who dashed the remaining 42 to add the other Wilmington score. Barefoot’s con version was squarely between the uprights and the score stood 19-14 for Wilson. Barefoot kicked to the Wilson 35 where the ball carrier was down ed, but Wilson turned on the heat ar.d on the first play, the chunky, 135-pound Wilson fullback, Over man, raced 61 yards down the side lines to be pulled down on the Wil mington four in a thrilling tackle by Rogers. Held for two downs, the Cyclone, went over on the third attempt. This time Clark’s try was good and the Wilson team led 26-14. Wilson hadn’t finished the rout yet however, and after Wilmington took kickoff on their 40 and failed to gain in two tries, Spurgeon Speight, substitute end who played in the ’Cat backyard most of the game, broke through to block Rog ers’ punt and then raced down field to recover it on the eight-yard Wilmington line. Brooks then went to the one and Rabil went over the center for the final Wilson touchdown. Clark’s conversion was good and the game ended one minute later 33-14 with the Cyclones in possession of a Brogden scalp and incidentally preserving their record of not hav ing been defeated on their home field for five years. Standouts for Wilson were Over man and Speight. Overman though tight for a fullback, is stocky and runs like a greased streak of light ning. Speight plays all ever the I field and is alert ortftball-hawking. i For Wilmington Sjvies and Rog Two Cyclone Stalwarts Jay Clark, left, quarterback of the Wilson Cyclones who tossed a touchdown pass last night against the Wilmington Wildcats and Clyde Sullivan, right, speedy backfield star, who was seen to good advantage by the fans last night.

Sellout Crowd To Watch Duke-Georgia Tech Tilt 1 ATLANTA, Nov. 2.—CSV- With a sellout crowd of 32,000 on hand, Duke and Georgia Tech clash here tomorrow in a game expected to product a large portion of the day’s southern gridiron pyrotech nics. The keynote was sounded by Ed die Cameron, Duke coach, as the Blue Devils left Chapel Hill, N. C., tonight. ‘‘We expect a hard-fought battle tomorrow as all Duke-Geor gia Tech games have been,” he declared. Despite the 9-3 edge in victories enjoyed by Duke, most of the games have been keenly contested. Only once has more than a touch down margin separated the teams. Last year’s renewal of the classic saw Duke pull out a spine-tingling 19-13 victory. Three brilliant performers, backs George Clark and Jim Larue and guard Ernie “Bear” Knots, will be closing out their Duke careers against Tech. All are headed else where under Navy sailing orders.

The announcement that the first postwar challenge for the 45-year old international trophy had been received by the country that has ; held it since 1939 set off immed iaVe speculation here as to the i team that will be selected to try ' and bring it back. 1 Before the net stars of the Unit ed States ever reach the final matches scheduled in Australia in | December, 1946, however, they ; must survive a series of prelimi ' nary rounds next spring. But it would take a colossal upset to knock the Americans out of the running. The last challenge round was completed at Merion, Pa., in 1939 when Australia defeated the Unit | ed States, 3-2. " Great Britain, Australia and the United States have monopolized 1 cup challenge rounds since 1933, , which marked the last time the ■ tri-color of France was represent , ed in the final round. It likely will i take the players of France and : Great Britain two years to re turn to cup form after almost six t years of war. , Walter Pate, captain of U. S. [■ cup teams from 1935 through 1939 i and presently chairman of the USLTA’s Davis Cup committee of ' management, said Frankie Parker 1j and Bill Talbert must be included ' in any guessing on the makeup of 1 the U. S. team. They’ve opposed each other in the finals of the 1944 5 45 national singles championship 1. and each time Parker defeated his ■ | rival from Wilmington, Del. * j Another pair of likely candidates ■ is Gardner Mulloy of Coral Gables, i Fla., and Bobby Falkenburg, the t Hollywood, Calif., youngster with the powerful stroke. Needed importantly for cup play is a strong doubles team to op pose the Australian tandem of I Jack Bromwich and Adrian Quist, 1 who won their last two challenge round doubles matches. They also ■ represented their nation in singles. : It would be heartening for our * cause, Pate said, if the United 1 States could count on Jack Kramer and Ted Schreoder, national dou 1 bles champions in 1940 and 1941. 1 Kramer and Parker won the U. S. 5 doubles in 1943. It probably will turn out that 1 the U. S. will have two Davis ■ Cup teams—one to play in the - preliminary rounds, and another - for the challenge round. The lat - ter team will be selected after - the 1946 outdoor season ends with i the National Tournament at Forest - Hills. Great Britain, France, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Ecuador are expected to chal lenge for the trophy and Pate says I it isn’t likely that it will take the best U. S. performers to beat any of these countries. Pate said the United States team —if it gets by the preliminaries— probably will reach Australia the 5 latter part of November. Whether the journey is made by air or ' water, a match will be sought ' for the players a week after they * land, he said.

Capt. C. O.

I know you are pretty tense about it. Here’s the things. “You are not to let that influence your play tomorrow. Our athletic relationship with Notre Dame i! something we treasure a grea deal. I want you to remember no to do anything to damage that re lationship.” The captain’s words possibl; were well spoken, for the sailor were pretty tight-lipped as the; took their final workout unde Coach Oscar Hagberg at the Sta dium today. They looked like a lo of young men who felt their hono was at stake. They had seen th story about how they hadn’t bee pulling together and hadn’t realize their potentialities. One of ther said, very seriously: “We’ve gc to win this game.” That was why Captain Humpl reys talked to the lads and coole them down. Coach Hagberg, whose team we | a b o u t an even-money choic against the undefeated, untie Irish in tomorrow’s big gam said: “Sure, we are disappointed b 1 cause the team hasn’t done bette But we have had no trouble on tl | team. We have some boys wl \ were stars before they came * us, but they’re all fine boys. Tl " spirit is there, all right.” 1 Even the professional gambler who seldom make mistakes aboi C the big games, were uncerta which way to jump on tomorrow ! game.

A member of the Notre Darr j family said, frankly, that ti Ramblers were only about 60 pi t cent of a normal peacetime Not: 3 Dame team, but he seemed , think they had a great chance beating Navy. He based his opl 5 mism on the deadly quality ) Frank Dancewicz’s passing.
