THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1950 Can Rams Match Record of Taylorville 48 Straight? iiitwuAii move runcE I ALL IS JOY IN CHAMPAIGN IAIII IIIAUI » CHANGNON PICKS THREE ; STARTERS; ML V. NEEDS 7 WINS FOR STATE MARK . Coach Stan Changnon, who guided Mt! Vernon basketball teams down Record-Break Road for the past two seasons, is not ready to make any predictions on the fate of the 1950-51 Rams. The Mt. Vernon basket squad staged its first all-out scrimmaRe last night. Plenty of field goals cut the nets for both squads as S rsonnel was shifted from team team. >+With the Rams drilling for the opener against a veteran Fairfield crew this Friday night, one tiig question—a carry-over from the last two years—remained uppermost In the minds of a good m.any Mt. Vernon fans. i... "Do the Rams have a chniice i^of beating Taylorvllle's all-time state cage record of 48 ^consecutive triumphs?" !£ Despite the barrage of prep marks shattered by the State Champs in 1949 and 1950, this is tfle big one that still hangs in the balance. It's the big one because, if attained, it's one that's least likely to be beaten by red-hot cage teams of future years. After a 31-30 defeat at Johnston City in February of 1949 the Rams rolled to 42 straight victories. The streak, including two state titles, remains intact. In the 1948-44 season Taylorville won 45 straight games and the championship. Starting the 1944-45 year, Taylorville bagged three more wins to make It 48 In a row before I tasting defeat. That record was compiled when | it was possible for a team to play 45 games (or more) per year. The Rams have rolled up 42 straight the hard way.- Under present I. H. S. A. rules which have chopped down the number of regular season games which a school may schedule, any record-smashing win streak must carry over two or more seasons. • • The Rams have what may amount to a final shot at the "old Taylorville mark. .No team ;• la likely to equal It again. The ••• record might go into the books Tas a permanent fixture. J3ad feature of the talk about tKe "big record" is that it puts Unholy pressure on an untried Mt. Vernon quintet. The Rams of '49 and '50 got used to pressure through a string of hard ball games. At the start, all of those games were not victories. X This '51 gang of Mt. Vernon has cine boy who has been there before when the chips were down. He's a great basketball player— but Walter Moore is just one guy. ^This year's team has enough to live up to merely because it happens to be the successor of two champions. Ordinarily that would be pressure enough. Now an untried team is handed the torch tlfet has to burn for seven more giJtmes. Pressure deluxe. 'J Coach Changnon was not optimistic about the shot at the big mark. To complete the job the Rams would have to reach the Christmas Holiday tourney with an undefeated record. Fairfield, Sparta. Marion, Salem, Centralia, Iferrin and Benton stand in the way. >*"In other seasons we've had to experiment a little around the first of the year," Stan said. "This Season will be no exception." y Changnon is currently l.worklng Moore at guard, Mose v Stokes on the pivot and Jim .Stokes attforward. "I would ,'aay that those three positions ^.are taken care of — but we jQhave two other berths to fill -permanently and a lot of work vto do," he said. r^'Our main problem, oi course, is tg_gain the experience that brings confidence. After so many games together a team begins to click. IJjich boy knows what the others a$e going to do. There's no sub stftute for that knowledge, it copies after a lot of work." J^With Moore and the Stokes brothers sticking to the varsity squad in scrimmage, Changnon alternated two other six-foot- pjussers, Lee Roy Young and Don McCann, at a forward post. On a double-pivot setup, Young and Mose Stokes teamed up. Jim McMaln saw most of ;"the scrimmage action at the pother guard position. McMaln, iMoore and the Stokes boys are f-the four returnees on hand :^from last year's champs. ^Also working at guard were Don Martin, Billy Shields, Frank Huff. BS1 Shea, who missed last bight's scrimmage, has also seen action aiguard. SSThe Rams' 13-man varsity squad wprking out daily includes: Walt Mpore, Mose Stokes. Jim Stokes, Roy Young, Don McCann, Jim MeMain. Don Martin, Frank Huff, BUly Shields, Nicky Davis, Joe - JOJMtton. Johnny Avant, Bill Shea. Want No Fans At Fairfield "Mt. Vernon basketball fans are asked not to follow the Rams to the opening game at Fairfield this Friday night." M.T.V.H.S. Principal Arthur Mihvard said yesterday. "Fairfield is now constructing a new gymnasium and school authorities there have informed us that Friday's game will be played in the grade school gym. There will be no seating accomodations for Mt. Vernon fans," Mihvard said. Under the circumstances Mt. Vernon cage fans are requested not to attempt the trip to Fairfield. Pirates' Harney Back to Yanks By Associated Prtis NEW YORK, Nov. 21. — Roy Harney, one of baseball's top executives, is going back to work for his first love. New York Yankees, the world champion. Harney, general manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates the past four years, will sever connections with the Pirates on Dec. 1 and become assistant general manager for the Yanks. The 48-year-old executive'decid­ ed to break off with the Pirates although his reported §40,000 a vear contract doesn't expire until 1952. Harney's status with the Pirates has been in doubt since Branch Rickey recently has signed as vice- president and general manager of the Bucs. Harney said, "I feel very badly about leaving Pittsburgh where I had some wonderful associations. But I feel as though I were returning home after my many years of association with the Yankees." Vice President Thomas Johnson of the Pirates said that "Harney asked to be released from his contract, which runs until 1952, because he thought that might make it easier for Rickey."

OLD NEWSPAPERS FOR SALE 5c BUNDLE BY RICHARD O'REC.AN AP Sports Writer VIENNA. Nov. 21.—Joe Louis, comrades, is a gangster—a gangster of "imperialist s,ports," the Communists so tell millions of east Europeans. They have few ways of knowing what the rest of the world thinks. The former heavyweight hoxlnd champion, to the Communists, is JI good excuse for antl - American propaganda. This Is what Communist news- Papers In the Balkans have been telling their readers recently: "Not long ago, Joe Louis arrived in Rio de Janeiro. The object of his trip was not that of organizing sporting contests. Immediately he arrived, he began an inflamed speech about the 'splendid liberty and civilization' in the United States and the necessity of war to allow the 'American way of life' to be extended over other countries. ' "Joe Louis was sent to Brazil to LITTLE SPORT use his former sporting glory to make propaganda in favor of war." That is a Communist theme —that American sports are developed to "prepare young Americans for wars and looting like the bestial aggression in Korea." As "proof" of this contention, the Communists claim: "The sporting bu&messmen in America have invented hundreds of perverted forms of sport in their desire to poison the peoples' con- sicence. These range from 'catch as catch can' to 'marathon dances.' They aim at developing bestial instincts and to pervert the young." "American sportsmen are the lackeys of Wall Street. They do not hesitate to bring gangsters from American jails and notorious war criminals on to their sport grounds." /his is the argument — that American sports train for war. But it is an argument the Communists advance with their tongues By Rouson Hi in their cheeks. If you pick up scattered newspapers from eastern Europe, you will also read: "Sports are the defense of one's country. They are important from a point of view of national defense. But this, of course, only holds good for Socialist sports— fon in the capitalist countries, all sports serve only the profit of rich patrons." Although the Communists advance contrary points oi view for their own purposes, their newspapers agree on one thing: "The golden days of the "invincibility , and superiority' of American sport have gone forever. Corroded by the cancer of pro- fiteerism, U. S. sport, is today far behind the flourishing development of Soviet physical training and sport. "The imperialist sporting gentlemen," asserts the Romanian newspaper Scateia Tineretului, "boil rage when they hear about the victories of outstanding sportmen in the Soviet Union and the peoples' democracies " California- Stanford Big Coast Game SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 21.— California's Rose Bowl-bound football team meets Its oldest and keenest rival, Stanford, in the crucial test this Saturday. The undefeated, untied Bears must win this one to assure themselves of an undisputed claim to represent the Coast Conference In the big New Year's Day game. Coaches of the two schools exchanged compliments yesterday at the football writers meeting. Marchio Schwartz of Stanford sale] he Is convinced "California Is the best team I have seen In my ten years of coaching out here." He said his chief scout. "Dutch" Fchring, who has watched the Bears all season, goes even stronger in the appraisal. "Fehring thinks this is the best California team he has ever seen," the Stanford mentor declared. Genial Lynn "Panpy" Waldorf professed to have worked up a good-sized fear of Stanford. "This is a traditional game. Anything can happen and probably will. It is a 50-50 contest, one that can swing either way depending on the breaks." The California conch said he was concerned with the possible condition or the field. "We hope the rain lets up in time to give us dry footing," he said. "We were fortunate to beat University of San Francisco, 13-7 in the mud last week." Waldorf reported his*scouts had been impressed with Stanford's showing in holding Army to a 7-0 win in the mud last Saturdav. "They noted that Stanford had shown great development in defense," he said. "The line is rugged." Boudreau Has Several Offers CHICAGO. Nov. 21.—Lou Boudreau, cut adrift as the Cleveland Indians shortstop-manager, says he has several baseball offers to mull over before making up his mind where he will land in 1951. The Washington Senators and Pittsburgh Pirates are known to be in hot pursuit of his services, and the Chicago White Sox also ogle him. Boudreau and Sox General Manager Frank Lane have only reached the "telephone conversation" stage. "There was no mention of any price by Lane or me,'' Boudreau said. "I have other offers, of course, and right now I would not consider going with the White Sox as one of the better ones. "It is possible that my going to the White Sox might be tough on Paul Richards (the newly appointed manager) and I have no desire to put anybody on the spot. If something went wrong, some people might be wondering how I would have done it and the result could be embarrassing to both Paul and myself." Illini Nurse Bumps, Bruises CHAMPAIGN, 111., Nov. 21.— Illinois settled down today after a riotous Monday of pep meetings and celebrations over the mini's 14-7 decision of Ohio State. "We're certainly not in the Rose Bowl yet," Coach Ray Eliot kept admonishing. "We still have a fine Northwestern team to play and we cannot afford a letdown." While the University's 17,000 students celebrated a holiday from classes, the football squad took a look at Northwestern plays indoors away from the snow-covered practice field. The Illini may have to play without the services of halfback Paul Douglas, a secondary defensive stalwart. He reinjured a shoulder. Other players were nursing bruises and bumps but all should be ready Saturday. Johnny Karras' ankle is on the mend and Eliot looks forward to him returning to his running stride. OKLAHOMA TOPS GRID POLL, ILLINOIS CLIMBS TO 6TH, ARMY 2ND, KENTUCKY'3RD Rampaging Sooners, With 29 Straight Wins, Were No. 2 Behind Notre Dame When Voting Closed Last Season; California Bears Remain Fourth, Texas Longhorns in No. 5 Position.

Nov. 21— Clark Griffith set two gonls for himself on his 8lst birthday yesterday— the first one being acquisition of Lou Boudreau to play shortstop for the Washington Senators.

P Boudrcnvi, a free agent since his release by the Indians, said at his home in Harvey, 111., that there was "nothing new on the subject— I won't make a decision until later on. Offer From Yankees He reportedly has had offers also from the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. And there has been talk he might wind up managing the Pittsburgh Pirates. Ir the Senators should sign* Boudreau. they would plan on using him as their regular shortstop.
