High SchoolShrine Game Drills Begin On Monday By EDWARD K. SACHS Star Sports Editor As they say at the race track, “you bets your money and you takes your choice,” pronouncing the choice so that it rhymes with terse. That is the kind of game next Saturday’s North-South Carolina High school All-Star Shrine tilt is shaping up to be. The heaviest line the North Staters can put on the field will average 183 while the heaviest Palmetto unit would aver age 187. Both state’s heaviest b .ck fields would average 175. New Hanover High’s two repre •entatives in the High school clas sic, Ken Rodgers and John Hobbs leave for Charlotte this weekend and will begin drills with the North Carolina squad on Monday. Coach Leon Brogden who will assist in the coaching of the Tar Heel state rep resentatives is planning to leave for Charlotte tonight. Both states can boast of a pair of better than 200 pound tackles. The Wildcats’ Hobbs and Henry Turner of Asheville both weigh in *t a healthy 210 pounds. The Pal Bietto squad has Stan Lee of Green ■jlle, another 210 pound youngster. Bill Estes, 200, of Rock Hill. The only “big” boy to cavort in •Ither team’s backfieid will be South Carolina’s Larry Riggs of Charleston. Riggs packs 190 pounds on his six foot frame. After Riggs, the South Carolina backfieid men are in the general 170 pound class with several dipping to 165 and Paul Joseph of Georgetown the lightest at 155 pounds. The two 180 pounders, Wilson’s Jay Clark and Mount Airy’s E. C. Cobble lead the Tar Heels while New Hanover's Ken Rodgers and Colman Grubb of Salisbury follow at 175 and 176. North Carolina holds an edge of 4-2 in the series to date with two scoreless ties having been played in the classic. Shrine Bowl records: 1937— N. Carolina 0, S. Carolina 0 1938— N. Carolina 19, S.

CARR RESIGNS : FEDERAL POSITION! _ ] J. O. Carr, prominent Wilming ton counselor and U. S. District Attorney since 1934, announced his ' resignation from the position yes- . terday after serving the Eastern district for three terms. Expressing his preference for ^ civil rather than criminal practice, Mr. Carr disclosed that he had re- ■ quested release from his dirties as i District Attorney as early as Sept ember, 1945, and that he had not : yet received official acceptance. Charles R. Rouse, of Kinston, Mr. 1 Carr’s assistant, has been nominat ed by Senators Josiah Bailey and ] Clyde Hoey for the position to be i made vacant. , Prior to taking office in 1934, . when he was appointed by the late President Roosevelt, Carr had a long and distinguished legal and public career. In 1916 President Woodrow Wilson appointed him district attorney, a post he held until he resigned in 1918 to re enter private law practice. Rouse, whose nomination is tantamount to his selection by President Truman, has served as assistant district attorney since Oct. 1935, when he was appointed to succeed D. M. Stringfield, of Fayetteville. Col. John Hall Manning, of Ra leigh, who was assistant attorney from 1934 until he joined the army in 1940, is expected to resume his office soon, according to Senator Hoey. At the present time, C. H. Leggett, of Tarboro, is an assist ant to the district attorney. In 1941, Carr acted as the gov ■rnment’s agent in the procure nent of 83,094 acres of land for he huge U. S. Marines base at lamp Lejeune, for which the in tial deposits totaled $2,877,974.72. To acquire the 187.13 square niles within the 66-mile perimeter >f the Marine base, Carr initiated . total of 14 proceedings in liti ation which began on April 3, 941, and ended on October 1, 1941. It was explained yesterday by R. 3rookes Peters, Jr., special assist int attorney in the lands division, hat deposits for the land do not •epresent final settlements, which would push the total expenditure ar higher. In addition to the Marine base iroperty, Carr was district at orney at a time when the gov ;rnment secured thousands of icres of land in the Eastern dis rict for war and public housing projects, defense housing, Federal Works administration projects, ind the Maritime commission, rhe largest single tract Carr se :ured for the government was 1,277 acres in Elizabeth City, which cost $77,500. Besides his distinguished legal :areer, Carr has been noted for lis public - spiritedness and many projects in the city and county were direct results of his initia tive and enterprise.

Front St. CADETS FAVORED TO BEAT MIDDIES BY LARGE MARGIN Both Teams Unbeaten But Bookies Still Offering 26 1-2 Points On Army By DEO H. PETERSEN United Press Sports Editor PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 30. — (U.R) —Quietly confident Army and boisterously cocky Navy came up to the eve of their annual foot ball battle tonight with the un defeated Cadets 26 1-2 point fav orites over the once tied midship men. Returning to a pre-war setting, with all attendant ceremony and gold braid, they battle before some 102,000 persons at Municipal stadium tomorrow. Among the spectators, will be President and Mrs. Truman; their daughter, Margaret; aftd Robert P. Patter son and James F. Forrestal, secre taries of war and Navy. It was the first time in their 45-year-old rivalry that both teams have gone into their big game un defeated. It was the first time, too, that one club had been estab lished such a decided favorite. The odds of the professional bookmakers denied that it would be the football game of the year. But the bookmakers have been wrong before. Navy, from Cmdr. Oscar Hag berg, head coach, down to the water boy, were sure they had erred again. The Cadets were shooting for their 18th straight over a two year undefeated span. They wound up the 1944 campaign with a 23 to 7 victory over Navy. xur uie mwi pan, me vaut;» and Middies who played in that game last year were back. But it is generally agreed that Army is stronger this year while Navy has been blowing hot and cold. Navy has utilized its power effec tively in the late stages of the season, however, and Hagberg is hoping his boys can do what the fleet did in coming up off the floor at Pearl Harbor, He knows what an uphill struggle that was, for he skippered a submarine in the Pacific before he was called to Annapolis as head football coach in 1944. And after tomor row’s game he is going back to sea. Army has overpowered eight op ponets this season with ease. Na vy had tough sledding, barely managing to beat Pennsylvania and coming from behind to tie Notre Dame—clubs which Army snowed under 61-0 and 48-0. Big Felix (Doc) Blanchard and fleet Glenn Davis were expected to tip the balance in Army’s favor. These All-America backs were more than Navy could handle last year and this year they have been better than ever. They rate above anything Navy has to offer in the way of ball carriers just as Army’s Arnold Tucker towers over Bruce Smith and Bob (Hunchy) Hoernschemeyer when it comes to forward passing. So far as the lines are concern ed—and that concern is a big one for Navy because of Blanchard’s preference for hitting tackle spots. The only edge which the equal terms except at the tackle postts. The only edge which the season’s statistics give Navy over Army, as a matter of fact, is in defense. But even those figures do not present an accurate picture for most of the ground picked up by Army’s opponents was done against second and third stringers. Cuba is nearly as large as Java but has a population only a tenth as large. EXCHANGES HEAR ACTIVITY REPORTS In an open forum meeting Fri day the Exchange Club heard re ports from J. B. Edwards per taining to a conference held with visiting baseball officials with ref erence to Wilmington’s participa tion in the Piedmont League. Mr. dwards pointed out to the mem bers both the pro and condiscus sion held on this subject. Following a complete report by O. W. Messick on the “Sunshine Special/’ sponsored by the Ex change club, also the financial status of the War Chest fund. The Club voted to reconvert the War Chest Fund finances to the “Sun shine Special” fund. Plans were discussed for the annual event next year. An interesting report of the Club’s bowling team was turned i.. by J. B. Edwards. A letter from the State Board of Control inviting members to attend a meeting in Charlotte December 16, also a letter from Reverend C. D. Barclift recently moved to Henderson, was read. Moses Gould suggested the Club sponsor some type of information on Wilmington, inclosure for all Wilmington out-going mail. John Knight, an Exchangite from Danville, Virginia, who has come to Wilmington as manager of the Bijou Tehater, was guest of the Club. Dr. Paul Black, who has been in the service for the past four years, was welcomed back to his regular membership with the good wishes of the Club. *-:-1 Old Rivals Meet Today These three young men will have a lot to say about the out come of today’s North Carolina-Virginia game.

This will mark the first appear ance of the Cavaliers’ high-scoring, hocus-pocus act on Tar Heel soil since Bill Dudley put on his All American show here in 1941, and a homecoming crowd of 20,000 is expected to see the game. Tomorrow will mark the first time Coaches Carl Snavely and Frank Murray, who rank with the leading exponents of the single wing and T-system, respectively, have matched stars and strategy on the gridiron.

D'LBGIM'S 10 South Front Street Seasons’ Grid ThrilU" Named By UP Reporter By WILLIAM TUCKER United Press Sports WrTtn^ NEW YORK, Nov. 30. — (U.R) — Football seasons will (£>me and go but you’ll have to reach far into the future to find one packed with so many thrills and paradoxes as the campaign now concluded against a mixed background at war and peace. Looking back over the last two tumultuous months, here are our personal superlatives of a season that ran the gamut in giddiness, inspired play and mediocrity: Single outstanding play of the season—Tony Minisi’s hair-raising tackle of Phil Colella at the goal line in the last minute of the Navy Notre Dame game. It was the clas sic example of two irresistible forces colliding head-on and Colel la stayed right where Minisi hit him, with the ball six inches short of the goal. It gave Navy a hard earned tie.

Athletic director Don Faurot of Missouri last night accepted the invitation and today the iig Six conference, of which Mis souri is champion, gave the Tig ers permission to play in the bowl. Missouri thus returns to the city where it snapped out of its losing ways and started thun dering to its confe'ence cham pionship. The Tigers beat South ern Methodist 10-7 here Oct. 6 after having absorbed one-sided lickings from Ohio State and Minnesota. They didn’t stumble again until they met Michigan State, a non-conference foe. Eli, Harvard, UCLA, USC I Battles Top Grid Card! NEW YORK, Nov. 30. — UP) — Hidden in the shadow of the Army Navy classic in Philadelphia to morrow are a number of top flight football contests across the nation ranging from the ivy-laden meeting of Harvard and Yale at New Hav en to Southern California’s bid for the western Rose Bowl pairing in a game with U. C. L. A. When the returns are in, the sea son will be over for all practical purposes with only the bowl extra vaganzas remaining. Even those pairings should be completed. Alabama, invited and accepted to the Rose Bowl, finishes its reg ular season work against a Miss issippi State eleven that was con sidered a mild threat to the Crim son Tide’s unbeaten season before Old Miss upset the Staters last week. Southern California needs at least a tie with the Uclans to qualify for the job of trying to stop Har ry Gilmer’s Alabama passes at Pasadena New Year’s afternoon. If UCLA knocks over the Trojans, like it flattened St. Mary’s, Wash ington State will slide into the Pa cific Coast conference title and the tournament of roses. Notre Dame, still a power de spite trimmings by both service academies, finishes against Great Lakes in what may be the final game of a rivalry re-born by war time conditions. Harvard, about as informal as white tie and tails in smothering Boston University, 60-0, is expect ed to give favored Yale a run for it in their traditional tilt that closes out the eastern season along with the Army-Navy game. Georgia meets Georgia Tech in a southern neighborhood scrap, Vanderbilt faces Tennessee, Vir ginia visits North Carolina, Watt Forest tangles with Clemsoa, Maryland is at South Carolina art Louisiana State invades Tulane in other southern pairings. In the southwest, Baylor clash es with Rice and Southern Metho dist plays at Texas Christian, Next in importance to the South ern Cal-UCLA tilt on the west coas! are the Oregon-Oregon State and St. Mary’s Navy-California meet ings. NEWBERRY BEATS PRESBYTERIAN NEWBERRY, S. C„ Nov. (A?)—Newberry College closed its season with a 19-13 football victory over Presbyterian College of Clin ton here today.
