Washington, D. C., Thursday, January 20, 1944—A—18 * | Win, Lose or Draw By GRANTLAND RICE. Balancing Schedules College Sports' Big Task One of the toughest assignments now at hand in college sport is the arrangement of schedules that will prevent at least part of the slaughter which took place last fall, especially when Navy trainees w-ere thrown against young civilians. Many schedules already have been completed, but many others still are in the making. It is Frank Leahy’s belief there will be no outstanding college teams this season, outside of West Point and Annapolis. "They lose good men,” the Notre Dame coach says, "but they have many good men back, with other good men coming in. When they meet it will be for the national championship. "Notre Dame loses practically every member of its squad. Most of the others will be just as hard hit. This means there will be better-matched teams all along the line. There w’ill be other 17 year-old kids coming along, as there w'ere this last fall—many who were real stars. I agree with you that it’s a mistake to overmatch these kids, especially those who are not so good.” The 17-year-old Tulsa sensation, 147-pound Ford, would have starred on any team. His 76-yard run against Georgia Tech came from a combination of perfect faking, speed, poise and running smartness. College Football Due Pros' Full Respect We have a squawk fo offer against those college players who take up pro football and then get busy telling every one that it is the cleaner, harder, more interesting game in which the player can have much more fun. I can see no sense nor sportsmanship in using pro football to knock the college g*me. Any football player with the right spirit should still be for his college and the game that gave him a chance to turn pro. Profes sional baseball can get along without college baseball, although you’d be surprised to know how many big league stars are ex-college men. But pro football coudn’t possibly survive without the help of col lege play. Practically every name on every professional roster came from a former college line-up. These men had been well-coached, well trained and ably-developed in most cases before they ever turned pro. If anything happened to college football there would either be no pro league or it strictly would be third class. Professionals Seen Talking for Pay Checks Most of those who tell the world how much better in every way the pro game is are merely trying to curry favor with the pav-check. Pro football has the greater playing strength. It should have this quality. It is a fine game and an improving game. But for all that you don't see any 80,000 or 90,000 crowds watching the top professional shows. Smart pros should be the biggest boosters college football has. In regard to football for 1944, I am in full agreement with Lou Little about needed rule changes. The sooner wrong things are made right, the better off the game will be. Three Changes Urged in College Game College football could stand for three essential rule changes be fore next season rolls around: 1. An out-of-bounds kick-off should give the opponents the ball on the 50-yard line. 2. Permit forward passing at any point back of the scrimmage line. 3. Permit any one recovering a fumble to run with the ball. There is no sense in taking any arbitrary stand that the rules must be set as they are for the duration. If these changes would help football—and most of the coaches, most of the players and most of the spectators think they would—they should be made as quickly as possible.

Speaker Fears Major Baseball Wont Operate This Year Former Great Player | Doesn't Think Clubs Can Muster Talent By LARRY SMITH, Associated Press Sports Writer, CLEVELAND, Jan. 20. — Tils Speaker, one of the original electees to baseball's hall of fame at Coopers town, N. Y., is doubtful about the major leagues' ability to operate this year. Now a member of a local draft board, the famed Gray Eagle says he: "would like to sefe baseball go on,’ and if it can overcome the manpower j handicaps, more power to it. But I'll have to be shown.” Hasn’t Lost His Enthusiasm. Speaker doesn’t want any one to deduce from his statement that he’s lost his enthusiasm for the game. He still goes to the ball park as often as the press of hts steel business per mits. He’s also a fight fan, a foot-; ball fan and a hockey fan. But he'sj pessimistic about the coming season. "They played last year with a lot of 3-As and a few 4-Fs,” he explains. “This year there won’t be any 3-As. The boys either will be 1-A or they'll be given 2-A or 2-B deferments be cause of jobs contributing to the war effort. If they leave those jobs to play ball they'll be 1-A so quick it'll make 'em dizzy.” Lauds Present-Dav Players. The man who piloted the Cleve land Indians to its only world cham pionship in 1920 isn’t one of those oldtimers who believe present-day ball players are inferior to those of his generation. "Sometimes I think big money comes too easily nowadays, and so lessens incentive, but don't let any body tell you all the great ball players are dead." Tris still gets requests for auto graphs and loves it. "The fellow who says he doesn't either is lying or missing something. At the World Series last fall a bunch of kids mobbed me for my autograph and it made me feel good for a week." Barons Take 20th Game Cleveland is the first team in ttie American Hockey League to hang up 20 victories. The Barons did the trick last night by shading the Pittsburgh Hornets, 4-3. At the same time the Hornets tied Provi-| dence with 20 losses.

OF COURSE THERE ABE PUCICPIN GREMUNS._IVE KUOWN A SCORE OF THEM AT JeWxdLs! Boxing Leaders Urge Politics Be Taken From Ring Game By the Associated Press. NEW YORK, Jan. 20.—Boxing be gan to count noses today after one of its biggest stocktaking jobs and the score card showed praise for the nose-mashing industry as the “place where democracy works best" and a warning that it's time to get “poli tics out of the fight game." These bouquets and belts in the eye were tossed around last night by a collection of such experts as former Mayor Jimmy Walker, Na tional Boxing AssociaUon President Abe Greene and Ring Magazine Publisher Nat Fleischer. The toss ing was done at the annual award dinner of the Boxing Writers' Asso ciation of New York, at which the Edward J. Neil Memorial Plaque was presented to the 4,100 boxers in the armed forces in appreciation of what they’ve done for the sport of smash ing snouts. Greene and Fleischer both plead ed to have control of the sport free from politics. Fleischer also received an award from the writers for long service to the sport. Both he and Greene suggested that one way to iron matters would be to have regular boxing writers— “men with practical experience”— named to every boxing commission in the country.

Nats Among Few Clubs Strong In Playing Material This Year * By HUGH FULLERTON. Jr., Associated Press Sports Writer. If there's safety in numbers—and some of baseball's best minds figure that mete numerical strength may have an important bearing on the 1944 pennant races—you may be hearing a lot about the two Chicago clubs, the Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nats before the 1944 season ends. The way the “brains” reason, the clubs controlling the greatest num ber of players will have the best chances of securing replacements when their regulars gq marching off to war. And judging from what's happened since last October, plenty of them will go. Right now the Cubs, with 36 play ers on the active list, and the White Sox, with 35, are the best fixed Washington, with 32 players now available, expects to fill its roster tc the limit of 40 men before spring training starts, and the Reds plan four additions to the 30 now listed. Nats to Look Over Cubans. As Washington's Clark Griffith pointed out, this year’s squads differ from the usual spring training groups in that they're composed largely of slowed-down veterans and untried rookies. Griffith plans tc take some youngsters and quite a few boys from the Cuban League tc camp and to put as many as pas sible on the active list early in the ■ season in anticipation of losses to the armed forces. In prewar years most clubs filled their camps with the 40 men they are allowed under contract, plus a lot of minor leaguers who came in lor trials. Only a few could reach that top mark last year and the totals ranged down to 23 men for the Phillies and 25 for the Yankees The Tigers now are down to 25 after losing four regulars since the 1943 season ended and have no re placements for the departed players. The Dodgers and Giants list 27 players apiece, seven fewer than they took to camp last spring. Rickey Finds Material Poor. Most of the clubs would be glad to try out promising youngsters, but Brooklyn's Branch Rickey remarked: "Not many are the kind to take to a major league camp. Even some of the men we now have aren't too hot.” Of the National League clubs, only the Phillies plan to take more men to training camp than they did a year ago. General Manager Herb Pennock recently mailed out 30 contracts and hopes to add a couple more if deals materialize. In the American League, the Yankees, Indians and Browns all have more men available now than when they started training last spring. But they won't predict that all of them will be on hand for training. Any revisions in numbers are more likely to be down than up. Nat Farm Getting Venezuelan Hurler By the Associated Press. CARACAS, Jan. 20.—Alexander Carra.squel. strong-arm man of the Washington pitching staff, | has received a letter from Owner Clark Griffith authorizing him to bring Pitcher Juan Fiancisco Hernandez to the United States for a tryout with Chattanooga, the Nats’ farm in the Southern | Association.

He is now an Army private at Greensboro, N. C. Senesky will receive an award at the organization's 40th annual din ner January 27. * 'Retirement' Meant He Would Enter Service, Gordon States By WILLIAM PHIPPS, Associated Press Sports Writer. EUGENE, Oreg., Jan. 20.—Let's get it straight about Joe Gordon, who would rather be a shortstop than one of baseballs great second basemen. He's not retiring. But he plans 'to be with the armed forces instead of the world champion New York Yankees in 1944. That's from Gordon for the record—to put an end to a lot of conflicting reports. The confusion partly is Joe’s fault, partly some guys' who tried to second-guess the former Univer sity of Oregon star. Gordon came home after the 1943 World Series and dropped a re mark about hanging up his uniform. He added that he wouldn't be around for spring training. Then he went hunting in the Eastern Oregon wilds, leaving the boys here abouts to put their own interpre tation on what he had said. Rumors Spread Rapidly. Some of Gordon's friends an nounced that The Flash was going to retire, and. in less time than it would take Joe to steal second base, he was tl> fed up with the Yankees; '2► through with baseball for good; 13> starting his holdout campaign early; <4> going to stay on the Pacific Coast and play minor league ball because he liked the climate; I < 51 mentioned as manager of the Portland Beavers of the Coast Cir cuit. When Gordon came home again he had to start from scratch and explain things. He believes that the majors will fold in 1944 because too much man power will have been drained by the armed services. Joe, who has twc children—Judy, 3'2 years, and Jo seph Michael, 1|2—reasoned that he probably wouldn't survive the fathei draft. Hence his remark about hanging up his uniform. Individualist on Training. Joe also has his own ideas about conditioning. He contends he can get into better shape in Western ^ Oregon's mild climate than at the i Yankee's wartime camp in New , Jersey. If, by chance, he were back In 1944, he planned to skip training , camp—with the consent of Manager Joe McCarthy, who says Joe always keeps in prime condition anyway. That accounted for Gordon’s say ing he wouldn't be around fot spring training. At the time the rumor factory began production, he say he hac nothing more on his mind. But recently the Yankee ace announced his intention of enlisting in some branch of service, and now he think? he never may play with the Yanks again. He may be too old when 1 the war ends. Eagles' Streak Ended By Mount St. Joe Gonzaga’s five-game basket ball winning streak is ended, but the Eagles own the satisfaction of hav ing pushed Mount St. Joseph's to the limit in Baltimore yesterday be fore the Mounts were able to gain their 13th consecutive victory. The Mounts won 36-31, largely due to the hot streak they had in the first period when Paul Gordon and Georgie Eikenberg led them to a 13-1 margin. Thereafter the Eagles, with Joe Hickson leading the floor play and Chester Coakley doing a good percentage of scoring, managed to close the gap and make a tight game of it. Gonzaga. G.P.Pts. Mt.

COLLEGE STATION, Tex., Jan. 20.—Aggieland has said good-by to Reveille—a dog that won her way into the hearts of thousands to become a symbol of fighting spirit. The little black and white mascot of Texas A. and M., termed “more than an animal; she is a tradition,” died of old age in the veterinary hospital. The Aggie Band played “The Spirit of-Aggieland” and “Silver Taps” when they buried Rev in the center of Kyle Field, where the dog loved to cavort during ] half-time drills at football games. Reveille’s collar will be placed in a case and a plaque will be affixed to the entrance of the stadium. _ Not long ago, when the cadets were raising money to have Reveille designated a general, they also contributed funds to have her portrait done in oil. It hangs where every cadet may see. Reveille was picked up one night in 1931 by some Aggies on a road south of the campus. A leg hurt was dressed and she was taken to a dormitory. She im mediately was adopted by the Cadet Corps as its mascot. She made trips with the corps; she frolicked in and out the for mations, and when the band put on a show she wore an Aggie blanket. Said President F. G. Bolton: •To many a homesick fresh man Reveille represented the dog he left at home; that dumb friend that always could be depended upon for a wag of the tail and a friendly bark, no matter how dark the clouds or how negligent were other friends. Reveille was a tangible, visible connecting link with a carefree boyhood." Ace Ringmen Carded In Three Big Shows By the Associated Press. NEW HAVEN.

CLEVELAND, Jan. 20.—When it comes to baseball, Jim Bagby and Manager Lou Boudreau mutually are exclusive—says Bagby. The tall right-handed pitcher who won 17 games for Cleveland in 1943, has revived a long-standing tiff with Boudreau, manager of the Tribe. “I just don’t believe he and I ever can get along on the same club,” said the hurler in a letter to Sports Writer Ed McAuley of the Cleveland News. “Boudreau does not like me and I don’t care a lot for him," Bagby wrote. “The best thing Cleveland can do is trade me. Where? Any where.” Bagby, 27-year-old native Cleve lander, went to the Boston Red Sox from the minor leagues in 1941, and was traded to the Indians in De cember, 1942.
