Harvard, Powerful Again, Confident of Breaking Bulldog’s Grip
3 STRAIGHT YEARS California Meets Stanford in Battle to Determine Rose Bowl Issue. Bv DREW MIDDLETON, Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, Nov. 20.—'They’ve got that old feeling, that Har vard can lick Yale, up at Cam bridge. And that, plus the sentiment and tradition that yearly is draped around two of college football's oldest and proudest names, makes the clash of the Bulldog and the gent in the funny hat the Nation's No. 1 game on the last and perhaps most inter esting “big day” of the season. The Yales and the Harvards first got together for a little friendly may hem in 1875. The Dark Blue has won 32 of the games to the Crimson’s 17. with 6 ending in ties. It's a safe bet that no game of the series has attracted more attention than to day's entertainment. Yale has won the last three years. This may be Harvard's day. Equipped with a powerful running attack, which is studded with masked plays and a deceptive spinner. Harvard has a fine ly co-ordinated attack. Its players, drilled by the wily Dick Harlow, are well grounded in the fundamentals. Yale Points to Frank. ^GAINST this, Yale points to one of the game's great backs, Clint Frank. The Blue has the kicker of the day in Dave Colwell and nine or ten other young men who can beat opportunity to the knock. Tradition stands athwart the grid irons from Cambridge to Palo Alto. At Syracuse Ossie Solem's first elev en is "up” for the Colgate game and the end of a 13-year losing streak against the Maroon. Colgate is strug gling to come back after a miserable season. Fordham, bidding hard for the Rose Bowl, meets the last of its intersec tional opponents in St. Mary's. The Gaels aren't as tough as usual but the winners of this one will know they've been in a ball game. Columbia, striving vainly to get out of the mire, plays unbeaten Dart mouth, Holy Cross entertains Carnegie Tech, mighty Pitt takes on Penn State. Princeton meets Navy and Temple tests Villanova in other major contests along the Eastern front. Wildcats Tough for “Irish.” ^^OTRE DAME, facing a possible let down after the Army triumph, encounters a tough Northwestern eleven in the Midwest’s extra-confer ence standout, with Nebraska vs. Iowa and Marquette vs. Duquesne also in the fore. The Big Ten presents a three-star finale in Michigan-Ohio State, Illinois Chicago and Indiana-Purdue. Stanford and California, early set tlers in coast football, meet in a cross roads game. A victory for either team will send it on the way to Pasadena and the Rose Bowl, a tie will send the selectors to the most convenient padded cell. California at Los Angeles plays Southern Methodist. Washington en counters Oregon and Oregon State clashes with Washington State in other feature games. Deep peace broods over most of the South for Alabama's Crimson tide is becalmed. But Georgia and Auburn, Florida and Georgia Tech, and Tulane and Sewanee should make it interest ing.

SMI IS LIKELY 10 PILOT BROWNS Bottomley’s Unconditional Release Opens Way to Coach’s Promotion. By the Associated Press. T. LOUIS, Nov. 20.—Gabby Street, who once caught Walter Johnson's smokeball, apparently held the inside track today to become the new manager of the St. Louis Browns, the only major league club without a pilot for 1938 Street was appointed a Brown coach last year under Sunny Jim Bottomley, one oi baseball's most popular players, who succeeded Rogers Hornsby as manager in the middle of last season, but who was given his unconditional release yesterday. Street has been the only one mentioned as a possible successor to Bottomley. Bottomley said he had no imme diate, plans for continuing in baseball and does not intend to attend the baseball meetings this winter. Before the close of last season it was said Jim had applied for the job of man aging the Cincinnati Reds after Char ley Dressen had been released. He ■ later declared he was "just joking.” | Bottomley’s Plans Uncertain. . 'yHE smiling. 37-year-old veteran ad mitted that he had received no 1 direct offers, but "only a few nibbles, and I can’t tell what I'll do until j something develops.” Even if he passes from the spotlight, the "gentle 1 ; man farmer” of Bourbon. Mo, has ! earned a permanent place in baseball ■ history. Bottomley joined the Cardinals in 1922 and played first base during four of their five pennant-winning years. He batted .367 in 1925 and was voted the National League's most valuable player in 1928 when he batted .325 , to help the Cardinals to the second j pennant. After the 1932 season he was traded to Cincinnati, but in i March, 1936. Hornsby brought Smiling ■ Jim back to St. Louis. STURDY GRID TEAMS CLAREMORE. Okla .

Plays Named, Not Numbered Big Apple, Rhumba, Hula, Three Men on a Horse in Repertoire of Coast Eleven. J3j uic Assutmicu r-rc5S. ACRAMENTO. Calif.. Nov. 20. —College boys being college boys. Coach H. A. (Hack) Applequist of Sacramento Junior College doesn't expect them to remember mathematics on the football field. So instead of calling a tiresome string of numbers, his quarterback orders the team to go into a big apple, a rhumba, hula or Charles ton. It’s so much simpler. ’’It’s all part of the psychology of coaching football," said Apple quist. "My boys are using ’the big ap ple,’ ‘Three Men on a Horse’ and titles of a half dozen popular movies, including ‘Good Earth’ and ‘The Big Parade,’ as their signals. "Some of the lads are not mathe matically inclined. However, they do associate popular tunes and mo tion pictures with what they are supposed to do on the football field. "They seem to get the idea imme diately. The big apple, for instance, is a fancy play that requires just the right technique and plenty of spirit. The name fits perfectly., ‘‘When we are down on the op ponents’ goal line or need extra push in the middle of the field, it’s ‘The Big Parade.’ Almost any popular name will do the trick.’’ Disciples of Rockne Present Four of Strongest Defensive Elevens in Nation’s Top Ten Bv BILL BONI, Associated Press Sports Writer. NEW YORK, Nov. 20.—When you speak of the Notre Dame sys tem you speak, generally, of offensive football. Popular emphasis has been placed on the per I fectly executed touchdown play, on | deftness and skill in attack, rather than on ground-grudging defense. | Yet, of the 10 top teams in this week's national ranking, the four with the best offensive records are coached by disciples of the late Knute Rockne. Last in the first 10. Villanova, I coached by Maurice “Little Clipper” I Smith, is No. 1 on defensive perform | ance, with only seven points scored : against it in seven games. Fordham and Santa Clara, coached by Jim Crowley and Buck Shaw, and fourth and sixth in the Nation, are tied for second, defensively, with nine oppo nents’ points each. Alabama, under the tutelage of Frank Thomas, and third in the rankings, comes next on the defense list, through having held eight rivals to 13 points. ’Bama's Record Glows. 'y/’ILLANOVA breezed through five games before the first dent was made in its goal line armor plate by Marquette, which was beaten 25-7. The Wildcats face Temple's Pop War ner-coached Owls today. Fordham, generating unusual scoring power itself this year, has presented its usual sturdy defense. After six games, four with major teams, the Rams' goal line remains uncrossed by rushing, for Texas Christian made its touchdown thrust through the air and Purdue notched the other three points on Cecil Isbell’s field goal. St. Mary's, which meets Fordham today, and N. Y. U., November 27 opponent, still face the thankless task of trying to crack the "Seven Blocks of Granite.” The only blots on the Santa Clara record are a safety by San Jose State and a touchdown put over in the sea son opener by Stanford, which is no football team's pushover, and is this week-end’s threat to California’s un defeated forces. Alabama, on plain figures at least, and without going into a comparison | of schedules, has a better defensive | record than either Pittsburgh or Caii | fomia, which outrank the Crimson I Tide in the national poll. While roll i ing up 216 points of their own—a to j tal exceeded only by Dartmouth in j the first 10—the Southerners, who are idle until Thanksgiving, have shut out six rivals and permitted two oth ers one touchdown each. Gophers Yield 44 Points. AT THE other extreme of defensive play Is Minnesota. The Gophers, w'ho tangle with Wisconsin today, while Pittsburgh takes on Penn State, and have been scored on by five of their seven rivals, including North Dakota State. Between them and the four leaders are Dartmouth and California, nicked for 33 each: Pitt, with 27 points, all in the last three games, on the debit side: Yale, which has given up 23 to Army, Dartmouth and Penn, and Louisiana State. Columbia's pass at tack may score on Dartmouth today, day, while Pitt takes on Penn State, Yale comes up against Harvard and Louisiana has a ' pop-over" in Lou isiana Normal. L. S. U., only beaten team besides Minnesota in the select group, has allowed 20 points, but also can point to shut-outs of such esteemed oppo sition as Texas. Rice, Mississippi and Mississippi State.

Associated Press Sports Writer EW YORK, Nov. 20.—Notes from our all-America folder: Marshall (Biggie) Goldberg, sparkplug of the Pitt team, came to college as a left-handed passer and left-footed kicker but was made over so he could handld" the left halfback job. Tony Matisi, veteran Panther tackle, is the strongest man to play for Pitt in Jock Sutherland’s regime and the fastest big man since Jim MacMurdo in 1931 . . . The best end on the Pitt squad and perhaps the best in the country. Bill Daddio has been kept out of nearly all major action^>y a knee mjuiy . . . xie nas one more year to go. Davey O'Brien, 150-pound Texas Christian quarterback, has played all but 20 minutes of eight consecu tive games and directly figured in two-thirds of the Horned Frog of fensive with his kicking, passing and running . . . Ohio State coaches rate Davey the "toughest little man” they’ve seen. Two all-stars who also rate class room accolade are Handy Andy Bershak, North Carolina’s studious end, and Colorado University’s famed Whizzer White, who made Phi Beta Kappa this year . . . The Whizzer wants to follow his brother Sam, to Oxford as a Rhodes scholar and give English rugby a whirl. Carl Hinkle, Vanderbilt’s captain and center, has played a dozen 60 minute games during his three var sity years. . . . Fritz Pollard, jr., Olympic point-winner for the U. S. A. in high hurdles, is the backfield star for North Dakota State this year. . . . Montana’s Milton Popo vich, star of a team that hasn’t been beaten since October, 1936, has averaged better, than 7 yards per crack from scrimmage this sea son, which puts him in a class with Clint Frank of Yale, Goldberg of Pitt and White of Colorado as a ground-gainer. The logical backfield companion --r— owicz in the all-star unpronounce able class is Ray Mlckovsky, 210 pound fullback for the Case School of Applied Science at Cleveland. . . . He’s rated all-Ohio Conference honors for two years and probably will make it three, including a bid for “little all-America” distinction. Villanova's play-wrecking duo, John Wysocki at end and Johfc Melius at tackle, have been play mates since they were 4 years old at Hanover, Pa. . . . Only break in their grid partnership came when Wysocki delayed his college entry one year, during which he worked in coal mines at Wilkes-Barre. . . . Together they have blocked five punts this season, four of which re sulted in Villar&va touchdowns. 68—GOOD GOING, GRIFF. , —By JIM BERRYMAN. -—— -—-* . PAY FOOTBALL MEN, S. C. PAPER INSISTS Gamecocks' Student Weekly He.lds Southern Loop "Hypocritical'’ About Subsidization. By the Associated Press. ICHMOND. Va . Nov. 20.—The subsidization bugaboo, dormant in the Southern Conference since last year’s stormy session here, made its reappearance today. The University of South Carolina student weekly went on record editor ially "as heartily favoring open sub sidization" of football players. The paper said that no one “imagines that the large squad of 40 grid stars, selected from all sections of the country, come here for the love of the alma mater.” and added that if the conference wants to "hypocritically state to the public that ther is no payment for athletes, yet underhandedly aid them, then let us step out—not gently—from the conference.” Commenting on the editorial, Wil liam H. Harth, director of athletics at South Carolina, said "certainly our football players are not sub sidized.” -•-• TOP-NOTCH SANDLOT ELEVENS TO CLASH Warwicks and Anacostia Eagles, Both Undefeated, Will Play Tomorrow.

NEARLY everybody who is anybody in local sports was on hand ant making ice tinkle in tall glasses and saying nice things about Clarl Griffith. These are two things requiring little effort . . . holding tall glasses and saying nice things about the Old Fox. There art some people who possibly may not care about the tall glasses and ice anc soda, but there is nobody who doesn't like Griff. People walked into the upstairs office at the ballyard, pumped Mistei G. by the right paw, and drifted aimlessly around the room until thej impaled themselves on the horns of the deer head behind Griff's desk. Ther they moved more cautiously. In one corner Bucky Harris was interviewing Mr. George P. Marshall on their favorite fall subject . . . football. "You saw' the Pitt-Nebraska game, didn't you?" asked Bucky. "Die you see anybody you liked for the Redskins?” Mr. Marshall, who was drinking a soft drink, took a long slug and said ‘ Yes. Id like to grab this Brock of Nebraska. He is a real center. I'd alsc like to have Goldberg of Pitt, but he's*> — ------ - onlv a iunior ” “How about Souchek?” astied Bucky and Mr. Marshall waved his hands. “He'll be called in the football draft,” predicted Owner Marshall, “and all the National league teams will be hot after him. Chances are that Philadelphia or Cleveland will grab him. They'll have first choices.” Walter Attracts a Crowd. ^RIFF'S birthday anniversary par ties furnish swell opportunities to revive musty memories. At the head of the steps, interestedly watch ing Secretary Eddie Eynon carve a turkey, was Sam Rice, the old gob with the flying feet. Sam was greet ing people with his left hand. “My right,” explained Sam. ex hibiting a paw with bright red paint ing on it, “was bitten by a dog. Un friendly rascals, those Chesapeake Bays, but they're nice to have.” “Why?” somebody wanted to know. “Well,” said Sam. “they’re good protection. They don’t like anybody, not even the peo ple who own them.” Over in another part of the room Walter Johnson was attracting a knot of people. Walter was saying he still was a-tingle with memories of the birthday anniversary party he was thrown not long ago. “And even if you can't shoot," he invited, "c’mon out to the farm some day and try hunting some rabbits. There are plenty out there and it's swell ... if you like rabbit.” They All Like Base Hits. 'pHEY served turkey and stuffing after a while and Mr. Nick Altrock distinguished himself by the way he wielded his knife and fork. Mr. Altrock had little competition this year. Arch McDonald was en route to Arkansas with the George Wash ington team and Onkel Nick was not embarrassed to the extent of being forced to quit the table ahead of Columbia’s "fat folks.” Finally Griff stood up and thanked everybody for presents and presence. “It’s nice to know,” said Mister G., “that it is possible to have so many friends.” That was just about all there was to it, except that somebody started to pass around an 1895 box score of a game between Chicago and the Ath letics. “Wait’ll you see it,” chortled Griff, reminiscing. “I got five for five.” All this pyoves nothing more than the fact that .nobody In local sports has more grip and affection than Clarl Griffith and that when a guy is once t ball player he is always a bail player Five-for-five. eh? The box score als< showed that Philadelphia made If hits off a guy named Griffith and that Chicago won. 24 to 6. But there was five-for-five in the box score. Ho« ball players like those base hits, ever if they are pitchers! As Harris remarked: “Griff sur< fooled the hell outta those Athletics,’ but the old gentleman only grinned and pointed again to his hit produc tion. Another Hova-Terp Clash. gANDS blaring, alumni praying anc fans yelling. Another George town-Maryland game comes and goes Spills, thrills and torn-up goal posts “Sons of Georgetown” and "Mary land, My Maryland,” Anothei Georgetown-Maryland game. Even in these early stages of re newal the classic is beginning tc gather a mossy background. It hat been no game for the weak-hearted nor did today's promise to be dif ferent. Let’s see. In 1934 it was 6 to 0 in favor of Maryland. That was played at College Park and some time during those 60 min utes of action a fleet-footed young man named Norwood Sothern broke away and ran 75 yards. When he was hit he was knocked out two ways— knocked out of bounds on George town's 1-yard line and just plain knocked out. Jack Stonebreaker car ried It over for the only score. Only One Extra Point. 'J'HE next year the teams moved Into Griffith Stadium and Mary land’s Bill Guckeyson had a field day. In the first half Guckie ran 50 yards for a touchdown. The teams took a rest and came back for the second half. Guckeyson then took George town's kick-off and ran it back 90 yards for another touchdown. Final score: Guckeyson, 12; Gcorgtown, 6. Last year the worm turned at Col lege Park. Jim Meade, highly touted Maryland sophomore, missed a for ward pass in the clear. It was a break for Georgetown. But Guckeyson grabbed a pass from Ellinger and scored. Then, late in the game, Georgetown blocked a punt and scored. The game was given to big Wilfred Valiquette, who was George town’s extra-point kicker. Valiquette’* toe spun aeroae the only extra point of the mod HOYA-TERP TUSSLE GRID MAGNET HERE Record Crowd for Season Expected—G. W.-Arkan sas Tilt Goes on Air. DISTRIST football fans had only one game to go to today, but It was the one they had been waiting for all year and not incapable of setting an attendance record for the local college season. Some 22.000 saw the George Wash ington-Alabama game here last month, but fully that many, if not more, were expected to be in the Griffith Stadium stands at 2 o'clock this afternoon when Georgetown lined up against Maryland. Although it was the only game locally, G. W. followers were expecting to be tuned in on Station WJSV at 2:45 o’clock, when Arch McDonald j was to start a play-by-play description I of the Colonials' game with Arkansas direct from Little Rock, Ark. Gallaudet, Wilson Away. | 'pHE remaining two games for Dis trict colleges found Gallaudet singing a swan song to football for the time being in a game against Hofstra College at Hempstead, N. Y . and the Wilson Teachers playing Shepherd at Shepherdstown. W. Va. Catholic and j American Universities, preparing for | Thanksgiving Day games with South Carolina and Hampden-Sydney, re spectively. were unscheduled. Even threatening weather was not expected to damper the enthusiasm of Georgetown and Maryland supporters as their teams clashed in a traditional series which was resumed ui 1934 after a lapse of 27 years. The modern status finds the Terps holding a 2-1 advan tage after the first three games. Georgetown having won every one of the six games played between 1897 and 1907. Maryland entered the game with a record of six victories in eight games, | compared to G. U.’s two in seven, but Hova rooters were grabbing any odds forthcoming as a result of any appar ent superiority in favor of the College Parkers.

In commemoration of eight years of sterling service rendered by Bergman, the gift will be presented by George Brobeck, one of Bergman's closest friends and Catholic University's most stanch, supporters. During Bergman's reign. Catholic University football teams have won 41 games, lost 24, and tied 2. His most notable victory, perhaps, was defeating Ole Miss in the 1935 Orange Bowl game, 20-19. ern series. Final score: George town, 7; Maryland, 6. Today—no Guckeyson, no Vali quette.
