Neighborhood Feuds Flare in School Grid Games Tomorrow
Anacostia at Eastern, Coolidge al Central In Spirited Tilts Bt GEORGE HI'BER. A couple of neighborhood rival ries flare in tomorrow's high school football series games—Coolidge at Central and Anacostia at Eastern. All except Coolidge are out of the running for this year’s title, and off previous showings the league leading Colts are expected to add their fifth straight victory. Saturday afternoon's spot game ftt Central Stadium also will be one of those hot neighborhood affairs with Wilson and Western, both of whom still have a chance for the championship, as opponents. The Eastern-Anacostia tilt will be ft rubber affair. They have met five times, starting with a scoreless tip In 193ft. Ea'tern won the next two •nd Anacostia the last two games. Eastern Appears Stronger. This year Eastern appears to have the edge, with its team beginning to click as shown by last week’s upset 18-fi win over Wilson The shift of Ed Nirholson from end to fullback has proved a happy change, with Ed’s blocking ability a big help. Halfback Bob Gordon injured his ankle in practice this week and might not be able to start, in which case Freman Settle will get the call. Settle has scored three touchdowns for the Ramblers, which makes him top man at Eastern, but he's light, weighing only 13.3 pounds, and can't play regularly on defense. He's very good for certain spots, how ever. and his speed and shiftiness always are a threat. Eastern figures to have no push over in the Indians, however. Jim Flaherty's passing hasn't been ef fective except in that first game against Central, largely because the opposition has learned lie's the big threat and has devised defenses against him. Tom Yahares has been breaking loose for some goodly plunging gains, however, and with him and Flaherty combining the Anacostia team always is a threat, especially on a dry field. Starting lime (hanged. Central constantly is experiment ing with new line-ups and against Coolidge tomorrow will send a team composed largely of those players who will return next season. Starting time tomorrow, inci dentally. has Open set up to 3:45. Also at 3:45 will be the big game here outside of the championship competition with St. John's playing at Roosevelt. The Johnnies last week won their third game in four atarts by nosing out Central A private school rivalry also will be presented tomorrow when St. Albans visits Georgetown Prep.

Sparring yesterday at Goldie Ahearn’s gym, Dorazio exhibited a powerful left hook that forced Teddy Wint to double up and hang on. For some reason Dorazio is being quoted as a 7-5 or 8-5 favorite, possibly because he shaded Hart in a 10-rounder at Uline's on Septem ber 22. That was a split, decision and the voting of the two judges and referee was so close that the point totals were even. In that fight, Dorazio won the early rounds and Hart came strongly at the finish, hence the longer route for tomorrow night's match is sup posed to favor Hart. Dorazio hasn't fought since the Hart bout, in which he proved able to take Hart's best punches despite being outweighed 26 pounds and had the better of the infighting After finishing training yesterday Gus weighed 196 pounds as com pared with the 200 he carried against Hart. Hart, who had a long string of victories before losing to Dofazio. doesn't mind being underdog again' Losing to Dorazio took the pressure of! him. "I found I could stand up under Dorazio's best punches and finally that I could tag him." A1 said. "If I ran take up where I left off against Gus I've got a good chance of knocking him out."

Nov. 4.—Coach Moore of Louisiana State believes his Steve Van Buren and Notre Dame s Angelo Bertelli are cut from the same bolt of cloth. Moore can have a clinical report on the matter right here Saturday. Van Buren and company come to town that day for an engagement with Georgia Tech. What they do to one another—and moat particu larly what Van Buren is able to do to Georgia Tech—may determine the Bayou Bullet's claim to all America consideration Van Buren and Bertelli never have stood together on the gridiron and. barring postwar professional football, they apparently never will. But Georgia Tech knows all about Bertelli. He was on the business end of a football machine gun which mowed down Tech at South Bend earlier in the season. 55-13. And Van Buren will have to display a lot of high explosives to convince Tech's rugged veterans that his buildup isn't ballvhoo. It must he allowed though, that Van Buren has no Notre Dame team opening the way for him. Georgia Navy-Sabers Grid Game Is Off Br :h« A>sof:»teii Press. FORT BENNING. Ga .
