Washington, D. C., Saturday, December 9, 1944—B—4 " Win, Lose or Draw By ROD THOMAS 'Hap' Newman Sounds Off From 'Somewhere' A few weeks hence the annual Evening Star'Yuletide Bowling Tournament will be In progress at all duckpin plants in the Metro politan Area. From somewhere on the western front we are reminded of this by a chap hundreds of bowlers will be pleased to hear from. Harry S. Newman was one of the early secretaries of the Metropolitan Washington Bowling Operators’ Association and the manager of several bowling establishments besides being a pinshooter of merit. With a few years on board he wasn’t associated in the writer's mind with soldiering, wondered what had become of him. During the war years and a little before, The Star tournament has been tied in with the common effort. Staff Sergt. Newman reports: “I sure do wish that I could be there to talk to every league so that I might be able to explain to them just how important it is this year for them to put their bucks on the line. To be able to participate in the tournament, held now to help the greatest cause this world ever has known, should be incentive enough for any one. However, if all could see just what their dollars are doing over here I am sure that every one, regardless of his bowling average, would enter this year. * * • These fellows have asked me to drop a line to The Star and the bowling operators asking if you all won t put forth a very strenuous effort. Let Loose a Buck to Lighten a Soldier's Pack ’•* * * The war on this side is not over by a long shot. A hard fight is ahead and many American lads will be killed or wounded. We still need a lot of supplies and I know, for that is my job, and with the proper equipment many of those boys will be saved. I just wish that every American could %ee the things that we have seen, the destruction in England and France, then they would realize the sound investment of their dollars. Cities, towns and villages are in ruins and family after family is homeless. Little children wearing wooden shoes and waving home-made American flags line the streets as we go through, giving the victory sign and yelling: “Boche go that way. Go get Boche, Amerique! They seem to place all their hopes on us. Let me say that every American boy over here is doing maybe more than his job. He lives wherever he can, in rain and mud. snow and sunshine, but always goes forward with the one thought—get it over with and get back. Yes, every American back home ought to be proud of the job being done over here, also all Americans ought to get on their knees every night and thank God they are Americans. Speaking for all of the fellows with me, we are proud of the fact we are here fighting and doing our share so that our wives, children and other loved ones never will have to go through the horror of war. There's Plenty of Fighting Ahead "I remember when I was home we used to have practice air-raid drills. Every one thought that was a joke and fun to be in one. Well, if they ever were in a real one they darned soon would change their tune. They wonder what they will do tomorrow. We wonder if we will be alive tomorrow. I just want to give you an idea of what those dollars will do toward helping. All of us are sick of reading that this mess is about over with. We don't know where you fellows get that kind of information, but there is one thing sure, the writers who send in those stories can't be in this sector." Big Ten Rules Out All-Star Play; Grid Heads Would Ban Clock mr the Associated Press. CHICAGO. Dec. 9.—The Western Conference, it appears, is ready to start a return to prewar football standards, embellished, however, by a proposal to heave the stop-watch over the goal posts. The conference faculty commit tee yesterday ruled out participa tion by undergraduate athletes in all-star contests as a first tighten ing of war-relaxed eligibility norms, but the league coaches at the same time did a bit of a strategical hand spring by recommending that foot ball games should last 160 plays in stead of 60 minutes. The proposal to divide grid con tests into four quarters of 40 plays each instead of 15-minute periods was one of five recommendations approved by the coaches at the final session of the league’s winter meet ing for presentation to the National Football Coaches Association meet ing in Columbus, Ohio, January 12 13. Plan Has Dissentera. It was the opinion of most of the eoaches that adoption of the pro posal would allow a better demon stration of superiority, pointing to numerous occasions a team was stopped near the goal line by the running out of time. Some grid ob servers. however, expressed belief that 40 plays would consume more time than the 15 minutes now al lowed, stating that in an average game about 100 to 120 plays are ex ecuted. The coaches suggested that the National Rules Committee ‘give some thought” to adoption of such a plan. They also recommended: That a 2-inch tee be allowed for kickoffs, i Considerable criticism was directed last fall against so-called "flat” kickoffs resulting in low, craz ily-spinning boots*. That the NCAA Rules Committee "meet for the purpose of restoring j the standardization of football i rules.” (The conference coaches as serted they "regretted” the tendency of different sections of the country to play under different rules.) That passing be permitted any where behind the line, instead of 5 j yards back as required in college I play. That the "use of the forearm” in ; offensive blocking be eliminated. | (This entails bringing folded arms j to bear on an opponent's chest.) The rule banning undergraduates i from participating in all-star con j tests will become effective January 2, 1945. and hence will not interfere with Big Ten gridders who have been invited to play in the East West Shrine game at San rrancisco and the North-South game at Bir TViingham. Ala., during the holidays. Dr. Lorens New Chairman. Waived two years ago as a war measure, the rule makes any ath lete who competes for any organiza tion other than his school ineligible in Big Ten competition. In the last two seasons numerous players com peted in all-star football and basket ball games and returned to their own campuses for further college competition. “The committee took this action because it felt athletes were getting to the point they thought they could get away with anything involving all-star games," said Prof. Frank Richart of Illinois, committee sec retary. The faculty group also elected Dr. W. F. Lorenz of Wisconsin as new chairman, with Richart renamed as secretary. Prof. Ralph Aigler of Michigan was designated as the Faculty Committee’s delegate to the NCAA meeting in Columbus. The Big Ten championship meets in tennis and golf were assigned to Northwestern University, to be held on May 26. City Association Election Opens Week End of Bowling Activity Week-end bowling activities will open tonight with the annual elec tion meeting of the Washington City Duckpin Association. The session will be held, starting at 7:45, in the Victory Room of the Ambassador Hotel. All men's leagues in this area are asked by President George F. Harbin k> send representatives. Tomorrow three varied tourna ments will provide keen competition for pin spillers of all classes, with the sixth Bulletin Bowlers’ Victory Le gion Handicap scheduled at Alexan dria Recreation, the 17th Meyer Davis women’s tournament at Lucky Strike and the third Bethesda Open at Bethesda Bowling Center. The strong twosome of Lois Glad ding and Karl Gochenour last night at King Pin defeated Kitty Kendrick and Ed Nash, 2-1, to maintain a one game lead in the all-star King Pin Mixed Doubles loop. Nash was high with 154 and 408. Lucile Young and Rex Stewart gained the runnerup spot by win ning the odd game from Bing Moen and Tony Santini, while Lorriane Gulli and Bob Miciotto took over undisputed possession of third place by sweeping Ruth King and A1 Terry. Miciotto fired 406. Pinch hitting for Stimmie Hart, Madge Lewis combined a lusty 376 with Harry Aiken’s 401 to sweep Jessie Sacrey and Paul Jarman.

Lions, Defeated by Olympics, Keep Hockey Fans' Favor The fighting Washington hockey Lions may be stuck in third place, seven points behind the Eastern League-leading Boston Olympics, but the youngsters are collecting a following. A crowd of 2,753, largest of the season, turned out at Uline Arena last night to see the Lions ab sorb a 6-to-3 beating from the Olympics in a rough-and-tumble contest. A1 Smith, Lion wingman who re cently rejoined the squad after being rejected by his Canadian draft board, put most of the sparkle in a Lion attack hampered by the ab sence of injured Jimmy Wilson and Sammy Kelly. Smith racked up two goals and gave the Beanies trouble all evening. Pete Long accounted for the other Washington tally.

BUFFALO, N. Y., Dec. 9.—“Watch for some important player deals to be made in New York” was the tip today as the baseball caravan shoved off for the big league meetings, opening Monday, after the 43d an nual minor league convention end ed without a single major trade. The general feeling among the lobby loungers was that one or two big deals are well on the way to completion, waiting only for the New York session. Figuring prominently in the ru mors were Cleveland, the Chicago White Sox, Brooklyn, Cincinnati and the Boston Braves. Vice Presi dent Roger Peckinpaugh and Man ager Lou Boudreau of the Indians were in constant huddles with Man ager Jimmy Dykes of the White Sox. Jeff Heath, Tribe outfielder, was believed to be the chief topic of discussion. Dykes admitted that he is seeking a seasoned gardener, while Boudreau said he is open to all proposals for his temperamental slugger as* well for Pitcher Jim Bagby, another problem child for the youthful pilot. Tribe Ready to Swap. “I am not adverse to trading either Heath or Bagby,” said Boud reau, “if we are offered satisfactory players in return. I have talked with other managers, but nothing is definite.” The Dodgers and Braves appeared to be cooking up a deal, with Brook lyn reportedly anxious to land A1 Javery to help their faltering pitch ing staff and Boston needing an outfielder. A trade involving Outfielders Fiank Kelleher of the Reds and Lou Novikoff of the Chicago Cubs was another possibility. The minors made plans at yes terday’s final session for co-opera tion with the high schools of the Nation to encourage more inter scholastic baseball by guaranteeing the schools against recruiting which might affect eligibility for school sports. Plans were approved for establishment of touring educa tional clinics by former stars and for distribution of films and rule books. Clarence Rowland, president of the Pacific Coast League, was elect ed to the Executive Council, replac ing Frank J. Shaughnessy of the International League. Rowland,the' first ever to represent the Coast loop, joins Thomas H. Richardson of the Eastern and E. M. Wilder of the South Atlantic leagues. Coast Loop Reprimanded. The National Association approved a full-time promotional department and a national umpire-adviser to act as counselor to improve umpire standards. A proposal permitting the Coast League to option young players to semipro leagues was withdrawn in the face of strong opposition, which included a sharp reprimand from President William G. Bramham: "If you adopt this idea you may as well throw awav your franchises." The most important of several minor trades involved five Pacific Coast League players. Seattle sent Third Baseman Gyselman and Pitchers Jack McLure and Frank Tincup to San Diego for First Base man George McDonald and Out fielder Jack Whipple. Brooklyn extended its farm sys tem by concluding working agree ments with Mobile of the Class A-I Southern Association, Burlington of the newly-formed Class c Carolina League and Thomasville of the Class D North Carolina State League.

Detroit I heavyweight who has been knocked I out 13 times since he started fight ; lng in 1939. is the fistic toast of the j town. Last night, before a $63,266 crowd of 16,283, including Champion Joe Louis, Oma danced, walked, jabbed and punched his way to a one-sided unanimous nod over Tami Mauriello of the Bronx, who last September knocked out the Detroiter in eight rounds. Oma weighed 18634, Mau riello, 19434. Oma in Splendid Trim. In the September fracas Oma was sadly out of shape after taking the; bout as a substitute on 48-hour notice. But last night, glimpsing heavy money if he got by Tami in the return scrap, he was as trim as a thoroughbred j It was his unorthodox fighting i methods which baffled Maurielloi j j Oma, hands at his sides and utterly i j relaxed, fdught as if he were stroll-; ing through a park. His eyes were seldom on his foe as he kept cir-; cling to the right, pausing now and i then to flick a stiff left to Mauriello’s i face and then follow with a right to| the head. Near the end of the second round Tami caught Oma with a left to the! face—the first punch he landed— and Oma lifted his hands in a ges ture as if to say, "Well, he cant miss me all night.” Tami Feinted All Way. The Detroiter added insult to in jury by laughing at Mauriello all 1 : through the bout, sticking his chin out to invite punches and then \ beating Tami to the blows In the tenth, when Mauriello swarmed in with a flurry of rights and lefts, Oma stepped back, crossed a right to the face, and Tami lost his mouthpiece and a tooth. The referee gave Oma all 10 rounds, one judge gave him 8 and the other 6 as the Detroiter assured himself another lucrative Garden bout, this time with Joe Baksi of Kulpmont, Pa., No. 1 among the duration heavies. Sinke Bowls Way to Lead In $7,200 Tenpin Tourney By the Associated Press. CHICAGO, Dec. 9.—Joe Sinke, Chicago mailman, was perched atop the fourth annual all-star match game tenpin bowling tournament today as it passed the halfway mark in the four-day round robin finals.

While the five seeded players dropped behind the leaders among the 16 finalists, Sinke was closely pressed by two other Chicagoans— Pvt. Joe Wllman, now stationed at Fort Lewis, Wash., but home on furlough, and Adam Plunge, who had Petersen point totals of 148.47 each.

Travel-Weary Gallaudet Bows to Bridgewater Special Dispatch to The Star. BRIDGEWATER, Va., Dec. 9— Too much travel and too much in dividual competition by a couple of hawkeyed opponents were respon sible for Gallaudet’s second straight setback here last night as the Wash ington quintet bowed to Bridgewater, 48-31, in a Mason-Dixon Conference game. The Blues were beaten by Loyola at Baltimore Thursday night. Bib Richards paced the victors’ fast-breaking attack with 18 points, followed by Bob Houff with 17.

MIAMI, Fla,, Dec. 9.—Pete Cooper, 29-year-old Gainesville, Fla., golfer with three small tournaments under his wing this year, went after his first major one today with a one stroke lead in the $10,000 Miami open. Cooper used a rusty 13-year-old putter to advantage in firing a 2 under-par 68 yesterday tor a 138 total. A stroke behind was another unknown. Maurie O'Connor of Belle ville, N. J. The big names were much In evi dence with Johnny Revolts of Evanston, 111., and Sergt. Dutch Harrison of Dayton, Ohio, tied with O'Connor at 139. Revolta's putting form returned as he fired a 67 to add to his 72 of the previous day.

Army's Line Superior To Navy's, Miller Says By the Associated Preee. BIRMINGHAM. Ala.. Dec. 9 — Rival Army and Navy line coaches have agreed that the Cadet eleven had a real line In the season just closed. Speaking before the Birmingham Quarterback Club last night, Army’s Herman Hickman and Navy's Lt. Comdr E E. <Rip) Miller both praised the Army line. “At Army we thought we had a good line before the Navy game, and after the game we still thought so,” Hickman declared. "Our line was lost sight of because our backs were staying in the lime light. but they lived fully up to our expectations against the Navy." Lt. Comdr. E. E. iRipi Miller agreed the Army line was very good in the Cadets' 23-7 triumph over Navy. “We had a very good line at Navy,’’ he said, “but after our game in Bal timore we knew Army had a better one.’’ Vanderbilt Plans Return To Southeast Football By the Associated Press.

The delegates at the opening ses sions were reminded twice of such a program’s need. Lt. Comdr. Carl Olson, former Pittsburgh University track coach now stationed at Boston, said in one speech that “we cannot afford an other physical fitness depression" and urged that a commissioner be named “so that our most Important national asset will not be put on the block again." Comdr. Frank H. Wickhorst, head of the Navy’s preflight athletic pro gram, later asserted that 46 per cent of the men aboard one battleship were unable to swim and “that is a disgrace."

ESSBHBH - ,v Eastern Title, Records at Stake As Redskins Battle Giants By LEWIS F. ATCHISON. Not only the Eastern Division title but an assortment of National Pro Football League records will be at stake tomorrow when the Redskins square off against the New York Giants at Griffith Stadium. Bill Paschal, the Giants’ ace pig skin packer, already has clinched ground-gaining honors for the sec ond consecutive year, but several other items are unsettled and hinge on the outcome of tomorrow's game. There is the Held goal title, for ex ample. Ken Strong, veteran New Yorker who returned to the grid iron after several years of retire ment to lend his former mates a helping foot, tops the list with six. But the Redskins’ Joe Aguirre has four and ditto for Philadelphia’s Roy Zimmerman. There may be some activity in this department to morrow. Paschal, too, will cop touchdown honors for the campaign if he suc ceeds in breaking down the Tribe's defense, for he is tied with Green Bay’s Don Hutson at nine, but Hut son has completed his schedule. Paschal last year nosed out Jack Hinkle for ground-gaining laurels by a single yard and has been the big gun in the Giants’ attack this year, but the Skins believe they have an effective defense for his potent off-tackle thrusts. Still another Giant figuring on a share of the laurels is Howie Living ston, sensational rookie who has nine pass interceptions to his credit. Wilbur Moore and Ernie Steele, the latter of Philadelphia, have five each and possibly can overtake the fleet New York youngster, but it seems unlikely they'll get their hooks on four errant aerials. Finally, but not least on the list, is the punting duel between Len Younce, Giant guard, and Sammv Baugh. Younce has a slight edge on the Texan, but Sam missed a couple of early games and really hasn’t been booting the ball in ac customed style. On the home lot and with so much at stake it is al most a foregone conclusion that tomorrow will see him at his best The Redskins shifted from the ball park to Banneker Recreation Center field yesterday for their workout because of the rain. Grif fith Stadium's gridiron is covered with tarpaulin as protection against the weather and it won't come oft until the threat of more rain finally is dispelled. Coach Dud De Groot hasn't be dded on his starting line-up. but probably will send Baugh in at quarterback at the start, instead of Filchock, and may use Frank Akins at halfback instead of Seymour.
