London Olympic Bid
Opposed, With D. C.
Proposed Host
>T the As*oci»t«d Pr»i.
ATLANTIC CITY. N. J.. Dec.
11.—Col. Evan Hunter of the Brit
ish Army and secretary of the
British Olympic Association, asked
delegates to the 56th anual AAU
convention to support London’s bid
for the first postwar Olympic Games
"London has been battered and
shoved about a bit in the blitz and
during the more recent robot bomb
ings, but from the information I
have, none of our major stadiums
has been damaged greatly and we
could be host to the games with a
minimum of effort,’’ he said.
The Britisher pointed out that the
United States would find it less dif
ficult to finance a jaunt to London
for its athletes than the war-torn
countries of Europe would in finding
the cash for a trip here.
Hunter spoke just before the dele
gates closed their sessions yesterday,
many of them heading to New York,
where the United States of America
Sports Federation meets tonight.
The US ASF is the successor to
the American Olympic Association
and is the organization in charge
of United States participation in the
Olympic and Pan-American Games.
This will be its first meeting since
1941, when plans were made for
the 1942 Pan-American carnival at
Buenos Aires, dropped because of
the war.
j Brig. Gen. William C. Rose of the
War Manpower Commission op
/ posed Hunter s London suggestion
and urged the games be held in
Washington, where it has been pro
posed to build a huge stadium as a
war memorial.
Willard N. Greim, Denver, was
elected president of the AAU for
the coming year, succeeding Louis
Di Benedetto of New Orleans.
Green said his term would be de
voted primarily to putting into
effect the seven-point physical fit
ness program the convention in
dorsed Saturday evening. Its salient
points are a physical and health
education from kindergarten days
on, with the program independent
of gate receipts from athletic events.
Jessie Sacrey Victor, Clusters
Of Strikes Mark Pin Event
By BEN McALWEE.
Coming from behind with a spec
tacular 180 game and 685 set. Jessie
Sacrey yesterday at Lucky Strike
tallied a 10-game score of 1,247 to
win the 17th annual Meyer Davis
tournament for the second straight
time by a margin of 42 pins over
Lorraine Gulli, the country's No. 1
woman duckpin bowler, who was
seeking her 11th victory in the city’s
oldest women's maple special.
But while the captain of Brookland
Recreation’s pace-setting Ladies'
District League team was gaining
new bowling fame with three near
record scores, two other leading
Capital fair rollers shared the lime
light when Bing Moen of Hi-Skor
fired a tournament record game of
182 with a quadruple strike, blasting
the way for the second highest game
ever rolled by a woman in Washing
ton tournament history, while Geor
gia Hays of Lafayette crashed
through only minutes later with a
quadruple strike for a count of 160
Two Quadruples a Record.
It was the first time ever in the
annals of women’s bowling here that
two guadruples were recorded in the
same event. In fact it is believed
only three other clusters of four
strikes ever have been rolled here
in any sort of women's competition,
one being made by Miss Gulli at the
Lucky Strike when she lost the
championship of The Evening Star
tournament to Mercedes Isemann a
decade ago.
Miss Moen's 182 was 15 pins shy
of the Central-South Atlantic record
' game of 197. rolled by Fiances Lar
row of Hartford, Conn., at Conven
| tion Hall in the 1939 Gulli tnurna
ment.
The afternoon block of the Meyer
Davis event ended with Miss Moen
leading with 644 after her ser.sa
tioned 182 second game. Mrs. Hays
held second place after climaxing a
634 set with her lusty 160. Ruth
McClintic was third with 615 and
tied for fourth place were Miss
Gulli and Frances Wilson with 597s.
Mary (Magnottoi Brown was fifth
with 595. Madge Lewis was seventh

eluding the 4th Air Force (March
Field , 20 to 7. before 50.000 at Los
Angr.es. mainly through the play by
Bill Dudley and Pete Layden.
The 2AF Superbombers, however,
stubbed their toes down at Atlanta
where the 3d Air Force Gremlins,
sparked by Charley Trippi, came
from behind to beat the Colorado
eleven, 14 to 7, before 8,000. An in- j
terception of a Glenn Dobbs aerial!
set up the winning touchdown In
the last four minutes of play.

Trippi Leads 3d A. F.
To Victory Over 2d
Bv t.hr* Associated Press.
ATLANTA. Dec. 11. — Charley
Trippi's fourth-down pass to Jack
Kelleher in the end zone with only
four minutes left to play broke a
7-7 tie and gave the 3d Air Force
Gremlins a 14-7 victory yesterday
over the Superbombers of the 2d
Air Force.
Trippi, former Georgia Rose Bowl
s'ar, was the offensive standout of
the game, outclassing former Tulsa
ace. Glenn Dobbs, in ever/thing but
punting.
Dobbs’ best effort was a short
touchdown pass which gave the
Superbombers a 6-0 lead in the sec
ond period and his extra-point kick
which made it 7.
With Trippi pacing the attack' the
Gremlins came back in the second
half and evened the count with a
77-yard drive which featured a 25
yard run by the former Georgia
back. Trippi tossed a 24-yard aerial
to Ernie Bonelli. former Pittsburgh
star, who made the score. John
Seltenreich kicked the tying point.
Then with time running out in
the last quarter Trippi slipped out
of a, Superbomber trap nearly at
midfield and scampered to the 20.
He and Bob Kennedy, formerly of
Washington State, carried the ball
to the one. and with one down left
Kelleher. former Columbia end, took
Trippi's aerial over the line. Sel
tenreich again kicked the point and
made the score 14-7 in the Grem
lins’ favor.

Big Six Erases Ban
On Scholarships,
But Stays Strict
By the Associated Presa.
KANSAS CITY, Dec. 11.—Big Six
colleges, after years of futile waiting
for athletes to trek to their doors
unchaperoned, have joined the
schools that go out and get them.
The faculty fathers have acceded
to years of complaint from their
coaches that the good boys go to
greener pastures because a Big Six
rule forbade any attempt to sell
prep stars on the virtues of stay-at
home college education.
It was against the rule for any one
remotely connected with a confer
ence school to inquire mildly of a
good high school halfback if he'd
like to go to college—unless the boy
spoke first. Even when a prospect
asked if he'd be welcome, there was
nothing to offer as an inducement—
unless alumni winked at the rules.
The new by-law isn't a complete
about-face. It limits aid to athletes
to the same plane as that enjoyed
by boys whose talents run to nimble
thinking but xvho couldn't crack a
peanut, much less a 200-pound line.
It states:
“A member school may initiate
correspondence and interviews with
prospective athletes, provided that
such loans, scholarships and remis
sion of fees shall be available to
athletes on the same terms and con
ditions as are available to non
athletes.'1
Coaches who wont talk until
they’ve consulted their lawyers are
elated, and say so privately.
“At least we can go out and tell
a boy what a nice campus we have,"
chuckled one gridiron maestro.
I fending champion, was eighth with
(562.
Cutting loose with games of 133
and 148 as the night block got under
way, Mrs. Sacrey moved only 16 pins
behind Miss Moen, who led with
860. A 129 shoved Mrs. Hays into
the lead at the end of the third
I game with 973.
It was in the fourth game Mrs.
Sacrey exploded with her 180 whop
per to take over the lead end she
finished in brilliant fashion with
120 to stave off the rush of Miss
Gulll, who turned in a lusty 605 set.
In her big game Mrs. Sacrey marked
up five straight spares, a double
header strike in the seventh and
eighth frames and spares in the
final two boxes. She picked the
front pin off a three-pin break in
the sixth, which probably cost her
the distinction of being one of the
few woman bowlers ever to mark in
all 10 boxes.
Miss Moen with 546 for her final
round finished third with 1,190, while
Frances Wilson was fourth with
1,187. Consolation high set and
game prizes went to Mrs. Hays, 634;
Lois Gladding, 602; Madge Lewis,
135, and Margaret Lynn, 133.
Twenty-one contestants consti
tuted the smallest field over to com
ipete^n the event, attesting to the
'popularity of the Redskins.

Jacobson Heinesaa victor.
Meyer Jacobson of Baltimore won
the third annual Bethesda Bowling
Center Open with a score of 969,
beating out Charley Evans, Bethes

Foster of Oklahoma Aggies
Stars After 2-Year Layoff
By the Associated Press.
STILLWATER. Okla., Dec. 11.—
Ralph Foster. Oklahoma A. and
M.'s giant captain and tackle, is
proof that a football player who goes
to the wars can return after a
long layoff and play hangup ball
again.
Foster returned to Oklahoma A.
and M. this year to work on his
master's degree in physical educa
tion. He served with the Navy two
years before receiving a medical
discharge. He previously played
with Aggies for three ’years, ending
in 1939.
The 225-pound. 6-foot tackle
fitted right back into college life
and proved to be just the steadying
influence the Aggies needed.
Coach Jim Lokabaugh at once
recognized Foster's presence would
be a great asset to a squad of 18
year-olds and appointed him cap
tain. Foster also gave advice in
the huddle, although he wasn’t the
regular signal caller.
Foster. 27, married and the father
of a son 1 year old. is a powerful
blocker and a smart defensive
player. Lokabaugh used him on the
Aggies’ weak-side plays and he
proved an adept cross-blocker.

Husband No. 15 Files
Plea for Annulment

bands during her trial last July on
charges of fraudulently obtaining

She was sentenced to two years in

Whitehead Sees V-E Day
Delayed Until Next Fall
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. Dec. ll.-Don White
head, Associated Press war cor
respondent just returned from the
western front, said last night he
thought that Germany would not be
defeated before next fall.
Speaking on the radio program,
“We the People," Mr. Whitehead
added:
“And I also think that the German
people won't crack—because they
aren’t organized to overthrow the
government. They work and fight
together because they have to. Yet
among those Germans inside our
lines there is no community spirit
binding them together.”
Mr Whitehead described the 1st
Army’s fighting in the Hurtgen
Forest between Aachen and the
Plains of Cologne as "regular In
dian warfare—going from tree to
tree.”
Don’t sell America short—buy
more War Bonds and keep the

Hoia/ -Id stretch a ton of coal/
Conserving coal is going to be a
"must” for everybody this winter.
This isn’t because less coal is being mined.
It is estimated that 29 millions more
tons of coal will be mined this year than
last—with fewer men. Quite a feat by
mine owners and miners alike! And there
are adequate rail facilities for bringing
the coal to your city.
But certain grades and sizes of coal are
needed for war production. And, in addi
tion, your local dealer is suffering from
a shortage of manpower, trucks and
tires. So be patient with him.
And conserve the coal he is able to
deliver to you. You can make your coal
supply go at least 10% further—and
save that much on your fuel bill —by
taking a number of simple precautions.
See that your heating system is clean
and in good repair. Close off unused
bedrooms. Pull your shades and drapes
at night. If you can, insulate. For other
suggestions see your coal dealer.
One of the biggest jobs of the C&O
Lines is hauling coal from the mines along
its routes, so we're in a position to under
stand the problem, and to know how
essential coal is these days.
