White's Passes Keep Langdon Lions Ahead Langdon’s Lions continue to set the pace in the Eastern Division of the Metropolitan Amateur Football League. The Lions are undefeated and untied in four league starts and you can give Harold (Sonny) White a good part of the credit for that un blemished record. It was White's throwing arm which lifted Langdon out of a 7-7 tie with Casbah Restaurant to a 14-7 win in the final 30 seconds of the thriller yesterday at Taft Playground. The former Devitt Prep player went back to his 45 and pitched a strike to Warren Thompson on Casbah’s 15. Thomp son sprinted for the winning tally. White sent the Lions ahead in the first period on a pass to Kenny Davis in the end zone. The same combination added the extra point. Casbah tied it up in the second period on Buck Buckley’s 30-yard aerial to Buck Albert and Pete Vermillion's conversion from placement. In other games.

Carabelli Claire Taylor and her good-per forming spotted pony Baby will make the trip to the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden this week a happy pair, having retired the Little John Challenge Trophy at yesterday’s junior show season wind-up spon sored by the Washington Bridle Trails Association at the Equita tion Field in Rock Creek Park. Claire and Baby have won the Bridle Trails junior title three years in succession, a feat seldom accomplished by pony contenders. The handsome Little John Trophy was placed in competition in 1947 and since has not been out of Claire’s hands. Now the bowl will be permanently displayed in the pig-tailed rider’s overflowing trophy room. The Claire-Baby combination won the pony hunters and the pony hack events, and was third in the junior hack and hunters for an 3'-i-point score. Reserve cham pionship also was won by a pony, with Barbara Gravely riding her strawberry roan to a ribbon in each class entered to finish with a 6-point tally. This pair was without a win, but with consistent performances in the sloppy, mud dy going and a steady light rain, placed in both the pony hacks and the pony hunters and was fourth in the junior working hunters and the junior jumpers. Potomac Riding School’s Silver, also piloted by Barbara, a fast-improving 14 year-old rider, was winner of the junior working hunter class. Others scoring wins included Frances H. Hill and her careful and mannerly performer Bruce, victors of the junior hunter hacks. Joe Smith followed up a good ride at Saturday’s Potomac Hunt’s opening meet to win the junior hack class with Flick, and to place: ! in the junior hunter hacks. Among other young riders show ■ ing well were 12-year-old Bobby Blauner, making his debut on sis ter Sally’s Three’s a Crowd by tak ing second in the junior working hunters and third In the junior jumpers. Murray Smith’s fiery and usually fractious Jr. Jack re sponded to the quiet handling by Sue Goggin and was second in the junior jumpers. Tony Marzo’s Tanya with Fred Jackson riding accounted for two awards in the pony classes. Joan Ostrow’s First Frost, the Lyckholm sisters’ Night Flight with Betty up, Caroll Ebe ling’s Merry O, J. B. MacWilliams’ Grayson Girl and Potomac Riding School’s Penny also were in the ribbons. OSIA Curbs Marlboro Bid for Tie a) Top Martin’s Bakery is out front by itself in Washington and Subur ban Soccer League and the Bread men can thank the Order of the Sons of Italy in America for an assist on the side. The Breadmen were idle yester day, but OSIA kept them in un disputed possession of first place by beating Marlboro, 3-0. A vic tory for Marlboro would have given it a tie for the lead. In other games, Uncle Billies trounced Caruso, 13-0; Charles County scored over Washington French, 5-1; Gaithersburg edged Greek-American. 2-1, and Pan American walked over Indian Head, 12-2. Leahy Surprised That End’Around Run Is Disputed By th« Associated Press SOUTH BEND, Ind., Oct. 31.— Coach Prank Leahy of Notre Dame is astounded that the legality of big Leon Hart’s end-around runs has been questioned. Sports Editor Bud Preston of the Wenatchee (Wash.) Daily World raised the point Saturday. “I’ve never heard it questioned before,” Leahy commented yester day after returning from Notre Dame’s 40-0 victory over Navy at Baltimore. “Every team uses it if they have an end who can run like Hart.” Preston said he was advised by A. R. Hutchens, secretary of the college football Rules Committee, that the end must face his own goal line before receiving the ball or violate college rule 7-1-5 (hand ing the ball forward). Hutchens said the end must make a full 180-degree turn com ing out of the line to make the play legal, Preston reported. “Hart doesn't do that,” Leahy said, “and I’ve never heard of it being required. He turns directly toward the center of the line and takes a handback from the quar terback 1 yard back of the line of scrimmage.” Preston contended the quarter back handed the ball forward to Hart in the 245-pound end’s scor ing run against Washington. Easy Win for Robbies HOUSTON, Tex., Oct. 31. ((?)— Jackie Robinson’s All-Stars blasted the Negro American League All Stars, 9-4, yesterday, using two four-run innings to wrap up the exhibition baseball game. n! Bullis Loss to Aquinas Is Viewed by 19,452 Bullis School’s football team ar rived home today convinced you can’t be a powerhouse all the time. The Silver Spring school, which sends most of its graduates to the Naval Academy, consistently turns out top football teams. Last year Bullis won six. while losing only two—to the strong Army and Navy Rlebes. The year before Bullis went through the season un beaten and was tied only once, that in a post-season bowl game. But yesterday’s 19-7 defeat at the bands of Aquinas Institute at Rochester, N. Y.. before 19,452 fans, was the third loss in six games from Bullis, which has won two and tied one. The Bullis score came in the final period after Aquinas fumbled on its own 15-yard line. Dick King, Bullis quarterback, carried five times in a row, cracking over from one foot out on fourth down. Aquinas, unbeaten in 17 starts in three years, scored on drives of 73, 37 and 19 yards. National Hockey League.

In the hunter division, both the 1948 champion and re serve will be on hand to defend against a strong field. The hunter and jumper com petitions at the National are second in public interest only to the international jumping con tests which this year will have Ireland, Canada and Chile chal lenging Mexico, military cham pion last year. In both open and hunter events, girl riders compete over the diffi cult jumps on an equal basis with the country’s man riders, both amateurs and professionals. In 1941, Washington’s Mrs. Aug ust Kramm, the former Margaret Cotter, rode Rocksie to jumper champion at the National. Many of the National’s hunter cham pions have been piloted by women. The District’s bid in the jumper division will be made by Mr. and Mrs. Gardner Hallman’s Grey Lark, who in addition to compet ing in the jumper and the work ing hunter divisions, will be ridden by Bobby Preston in the junior jumpers and by Carole Barber in the junior working hunters. Dr. John R. Keeler’s Wood Secret will try for jumper honors. The usual North-South battle I looms in the hunter division. Last year Virginia hunters accounted I for the majority of awards with Mrs. E. Cooper Person’s Adventure and Dr. and Mrs. Alvin I. Kay's locally-owned Portmaker respec tively taking championship and reserve. These two again head I the Southern contingent and from Silver Spring Cheerie McKee will be competing with Sir Pennard. In the pony classes, Claire Tay lor with Baby and Laura Lee Shreve with Chico will represent the immediate Washington area.

Why not—folks figured—get really fresh style lines and that stout bumper-guard grille that can take any normal impact yet won’t “lock horns” with cars ahead?
