Important Grid Battles On Week’s Collegiate Schedule By MURRAY ROSE yr\V YORK, Nov. 17—(U.R)—1This i payoff week in college foootball. Bow) chances and conference titles are the stakes up for grabs all over the nation Saturday with the Pacific Coast Conference and Big jjine contests having the most important bearing. , The best game of tne ween sends the formidable Bruins of U. C. L. A against Southern California in the Pacific Coast’s battle of the year with the conference crown end Western Rose Bowl nomina tion hinging on th3 outcome. U. C. L A., along with Georgia the only unbeaten and untied major elevens in the country, trampled Montana 61-7 Saturday in a tune up for the Coast classic as South ern California, twice defeated but only once in the conference, rest ed. While the Western Rose Bowl team will be easy to pick after Saturday, the naming of the east ern eleven shapes up as quite a dilemma. Mighty Army, unbeaten in three years and 34-7 conquerers of Pennsylvania Saturday, was re ported receptive to a Pasadena bid today and up to now the coast conference and Rose Bowl promot ers would have given away half the rights to the joint to bring the Black Knights of the Hudson west. / But Tuesday the Coast Confer ence and Big Nine officials will get together to draw up the de tails of a five-year pact between the two leagues for Rose Bowl appearance and it is more than likely that Illinois or Michigan, contenders for the Western Con ference crown, will get the game. However, there is strong feel ing in both the far west and mid west to let Army have the chance this year. The Big Nine season winds up Saturday with Illinois needing only a victory over Northwestern to clinch the flag. However, if the Illini, 16-7 winners over Ohio State, should lose, Michigan’s Wolverines could capture the championship by defeating Ohio State. The Wol verines, by whipping Wisconsin 28-6, made their record 4-1-1 against Illinois’ 5-1. Meanwhile, most of the other powers with the exception of Texas, rolled on to decisive victories. Tex as was knocked out of the South west Conference running once and for all by Texas Christian’s Horned Frogs who dumped the Longhorns, 14-0. Notre Dame, held to a bare 7-0 margin by Northwestern for three periods, broke out for three touch down * in the final quarter to sub due Northwestern's Wildcats, 27 0; Georgia maintained its perfect record by trouncing Auburn 41-0; Georgia Tech, beaten only in its opener by Tennessee, gathered its seventh consecutive triumph with a smashing 35-7 conquest of Tu lane; and Tennessee came from behind a 13-0 margin to overwhelm Boston College 33-13. Of these top elevens, all in the first ten in the national rankings last week, only Tennessee appears to be in for a rugged afternoon Saturday. The Vols, a good shot for either the Sugar, Cotton or Orange New Year’s festivals, take on Kentucky. The Wildcats, led by Dopey Phelps, whipped West Vir ginia 13-0. Notre Dame plays at Tulane; Georgia at Chattanooga; and Geor gia Tech entertains feeble Furman. Since their chief rivals will be play ing out of the conference, Tennes see, currently tied for the south eastern lead with Georgia at 3-0, can take over the lead by stopping Kentucky. The best battle' in the South, how ever, will be the annual Southern Conference classic between Duke and North Carolina. Duke, beaten only once in the loop, dropped South Carolina out of the leadership yesterday with a resounding 39-0 triumph and North Carolina, un beaten but once tied in the circuit, took over the pace-setting role by downing Wake Forest, 26-14. The Tar Heels wind up their league schedule against Duke and can clinch the cup with a victory. Even the Ivy League was wrap ped up in a tight snarl. Harvard only eleven undefeated and untied in the circuit, can win the flag by defeating Yale at Cambridge in one of the nation’s oldest football rival ries. This used to be the “game ol games’’ several decades ago and this year it once again will be a corker. Harvard made its record 3-0 by conquering 28-0 while Yale over powered Princeton in a “big three’ meeting, 30-2 for a 3-1-1-slate il Yale beats Harvard, the Elis can win the ivy title as well as the big three crown if Penn (2-1) defeats Cornell (3-0-1) as expected on Thanksgiving day. Cornell v a n - quished Dartmouth 21-7. The Big Six was another sna f u e d loop. Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska all were deadlocked at 4-1, leaving the issue up to Saturday’s Nebraska at Okla homa game and the Thanksgiving tilt between Missouri and Kansas. Oklahoma spilled Missouri, 27-6; Nebraska trampled Iowa State, 33 0; and Kansas blanked Kansas State 34-0. Arkansas assured itself of no worse than a tie for the South western Conference championship with a 13-0 triumph over Southern Methodist for a 5-1 record as Rice (3-1) knocked Texas A. and M. out of the running, 27-10. The Razorbacks wind up their campaign i n a n inter-conference tilt with Tulsa, Missouri Valley Kings, Nov. 28, while Rice must still play Texas Christian, flushed with its Texas victory, Saturday, and Baylor the week after. Tulsa defeated Baylor 17-0. Outside of Texas’ upset, there were few surprises over the week end, which, considering the topsy turvy events of the years, was a surprise in itself. Colgate, playing I :ts last season under Coach Andy Kerr, won the “Big one" for the ‘Old man” by walloping favored Syracuse 25-7 in the traditional up state New York clash; Penn State, slight underdogs, handed Navy its seventh straight loss, 12 - 7, and Minnesota, showing future promise, blitzed Iowa 16-6 in a Big Nine affair. Two of the east’s small college powerhouses, Muhlenberg and Del aware, maintained their unbeaten and untied records, and got set tc knock each other off Saturday ai Wilmington. Muhlenberg walloped Moravian 47-0 and Delaware daz zled Washington College 61-0. Other major results of Saturday included: East—Columbia 46, Lafayette 0; Georgetown 35, Scranton 7; Rut gers 55, Lehigh 6; St. Bonaventure j 26, Kings Point 0; New York U. 33, Fordham 28; Temple 27, Bucknell 6; Wesleyan 21, Trinity 14; Wil iams 21, Amherst IS.

Sunday afternoon representatives of the six teams met for an informal business session at Uncle Henry’s and enjoyed a delicious dinner as the guests of Victor Stefano and Luby Pollock, co-owners of the Wilmington Pirates. Had quite a chat with Arthur Apple, vice-president of the recently formed Duplin county athletic associa tion. Apple tells me the residents of Duplin county are one hundred percent behind the Warsaw baseball club. He listed the officers and directors of the club as follows: S. W. Marriner, president; Arthur Apple, vice president; R. L. West, secretary-treasurer and the fol * lowing directors; H. C. Dale, Moseley Phillips, A. D. Draughton, G. E. Alpin, Jr., R. C. Moore and C. A. Percythe. j “I think the addition of Warsaw to the Tobacco State League will be a real asset to the circuit, Warsaw is a good baseball town and the people are behind us. He added “. . . and we are going to beat the pants off the other teams.” The complete ball park, including the lights, grand stand and fence has been purchased and will be erected on a site near the Warsaw High school, he told me. “In the deal we also got eight or nine players, he remarked. The players acquired by the Duplin as sociation include such stars as Lorenz, Gentry. Hunt, Scrobola, Bomar, Sellers, Fortune, Wilmer and Stevens. He said the directors had not “even thought of a man ager” since they had been so busy in getting the as sociation set up. Apple paid high tribute to the residents of Duplin county for their “whole hearted support”. He said he felt confident that Warsaw would produce one of the "best teams in the league” next season. “The mayor, and other officials of the town of Warsaw ana the county of Duplin have been swell and with this type of cooperation, how can we fail ?” he said. Prexy Jimmy Wade handled the meeting well and was careful to explain the proper proceedure of each and every motion . . . Bert Kite, business manager of the Pirates and a well-known figure in local baseball circuits, was busy talking over old times with several °f his cronies . . Luby Pollock and Vic Stefano were kept busy, making sure that the visiting owners were enjoying themselves . . .

Morris Wade, secretary of the circuit was his usual pleasant self, walking around talking baseball with everyone ...

Wilson, Draper dentist, was re-elected as president of the Class C Carolina League for the 1947 baseball season at a directors meeting here Sunday. He was granted a bonus for the past season and given an increase in salary for the coming year, climaxing several months of spec ulation as to whether the doctor would remain as head of the base ball league which he helped found two years ago. He had previously resigned, but the directors would not accept his resignation. Dr. Wilson will represent the lea gue at the Annual Minor League meeting in Los Angeles in Decem ber, at which time the clubs there represented will convene for any urgent business.

Lib Bradshaw and Corrine Smith of Charlotte, the defending champ Ions, were second with 1,112 pins » North Carolina Tar Heels Take Southern Conference Lead As Duke Defeats S. C. Two of the craftiest coaches in the business — Carl Snavely of North Carolina and Wallace Wade of Duke—will send their respective football forces against each other at Chapel Hill, Saturday afternoon in the feature clash of the 1946 gridiron campaign in the Southern Conference. If North Carolina manages to win this one, the Tar Heels would sew up the conference champion ship. However, if the Dukes win, the idle William and Mary Indians would parade to the top of the conference ladder, and the title would have to be decided in games on Thanksgiving day. South Carolina’s Gamecocks lost their grip on first place in the league Saturday when they found themselves outclassed by a Duke eleven that has certainly come into its own for these last games of the dizziest of all football seasons. Duke stopped South Carolina, pre viously undefeated in four loop starts, 39-0. Only one other conference game will be played this week, but several of the league’s 16 elevens will tackle non-ccnference foes.
