By ORLO ROBERTSON New York, Dec. 3 (IP) — Although playing only ah informal schedule, Boston College moved front and center in the five-year football scoring records of the nation's leading colleges compiled today by the Associated Press. With Tennessee, the 1942 leader, not playing this year, the Eagles advanced from second place to take the lead svith an average of 844 for 38 victories, seven defeats and one tie since 1939. They won three of their four games this season and tied the other. While Iheir average was ten points under lasl season's figures, . the New Englanders won the top east of Blevins. See Jess I spot by a margin of three percent- 27-6tp I age points over Notre Dame, which used nine victories in ten games to boost its five-year standing from .837 to .841. The Irish have a five- year record of 37 triumphs, seven setbacks and three ties. Three Southwest schools showed the biggest improvement in comparison with the figures covering the five-year period ending in 1942. The Texas Aggies, who'll meet Louisiana State in the Orange Bowl, jumped from 14th to 3rd place with an .813 average. Texas, host to Randolph Field in the Cotton Bowl, vaulted from 32nd spot to seventh with a percentage of .783 and Tulsa, headed for the Sugar Bowl after two unbeaten seasons, took over eighth as compared to 23rd in 1942, with a figure of .773. Six teams have scored more than 1,000 points during the span with Duke's Blue Devils showing the most prolific offensive. Largely because they rolled-up 33? points in nine g;ames this season, the Southern Conference champions tallied 1,249 points in 47 games.

There might be other diversionary attacks. Pending a clean-up of the European situation we needn't expect an all-out offensive throughout the Japanese theatre, it seems to me we shall need all the European equipment for the final Jap show. Meantime, however, the essential preliminary offensives .under Lord Mountbatten and the American command in the Pacific can be got well under way.

Secretary Daniel Ferris said other "Important" problems would be discussed, but he was not at liberty to divulge their nature immediately. Three of the unofficial marks, Emmett J. Cashin's brcat stroke marks in the 200-meter and 200- yard breal stroke, and John D. Powell's halt-mile walking record, have been protested, Ferris said. The secretary sard the kick style used by Cashin in winning his events last April 10 at Palo Alto. Cal., and the style used by Powell in a meet at Los Angeles last July 10 were being questioned. Ferris said the A. A. U. was not planning to reopen the case of Jim Thorpe, who in the 1912 Olympic Games at Stockholm was deprived of his' nlcctals and trophies on the ground he had competed for pay in baseball. There had been some intimation the case .would be reopened and an effort made to have the medals returned to the elderly Indian. Last winter the Oklahoma State Legislature passed a resolution calling for restoration of the medals. Ferris said the A. A. U. was powerless to act, since the medals Thorpe won were sent to the second-place mon. Trophies are never retained permanently, Ferris said, and arc always in competition, remaining in the custody of each champion only so long as he retains the title. Among the American records to be considered are three set by Guilder Hacgg, Swedish running star, during his tour of the U. S. last summer; Ensign Hugh Cannon's discus throw of 174 feet 10 1-8 inches, and the 300-yard dash time of 30.2 seconds by Cliff Bourland. Ensign Cornelius Warmcrdam's pole vault of 15 feet, 8 1-2 inches is the outstanding indoor mark up for consideration. Others include 8:51 for two miles by Ensign Greg Rice; 1:102 for GOO yards by Hugh Short and 00.9 for the 00-yard low hurdles by Harold Stickel. Billy Briggs Dies Following Attock Billy Briggs, former Hope boy, died this week at Tampa, Fin., following a heart attack. He was a member of the armed forces. Mi-. Briggs was the son of Mrs. Florence Meek Hodges of Shrcvc- port, a long-time resident of Hope. Labor Wanted in Building of du Pont Plant Labor recruiting is announced here today 'by the Hope district office of the U.S. Employment Service for a new war plant to be constructed at an unnamed site in the Pacific Northwest by the du Pont interests. Following a meeting with state labor officials and a representative of du Pont, Floyd Sharp, state di rector of the War Manpower Commission, said all recruiting tor out uf-slate industry would be discon tinued until the Pacific area con struction job is' staffed. "Vital importance of this projcc' is indicated by the fact that al representatives of major aircraf and ship-building industries, for merly given highest labor procure ment priorities on the state, have been asked to cease recruiting tern porarily," he said. ".This drive will be conductci with sufficient control of man power to prevent jeopardizing labo needs of essential industries in Uv state. Seasonal farm labor will b' returned to the farms when it i needed next spring," he said. Co-operation Urged Mr. Sharp urged farm operator and persons employed in non-es scntial industries to co-operate in providing labor necessary for construction of the plant. Company representatives -will be stationed in local United States Employment Service offices to interview and hire applicants. Managers of USES offices of the stale will do the hiring in their areas, authorize medical examinations and send applicants to Fort Smith. There they will be met by company representatives and transportation funds will be advanced. Exact location of the plant cannot be divulged, Mr. Sharp said. Representatives of the company have slated an "unlimited" number of workers is needed. Randolph Field Places 3 on All-Southwest Dallas.

Australians Driving Up Huon Peninsula By The Associated Press Japanese possession of Die entire Huon peninsula in northeastern New Guinea was threalened today by the advance of Iwo Auslralian tinils baltling to clear that stralc- gic sector for a possible invasion of New Britain island. Veteran "Digger" troops have captured nearly half of Ihe peninsula coast and are now puching inland as well.

One Australian force is closing in on Wareo, 11 miles northwest of coastal Finschhafen and the juncture of jungle trails forming the line of Japanese retreat. A second unit advanced toward the mountain redoubt of Warco. Allied bombers continued to smash ul Japanese bases on the toe of New Britain where invasion landings might be made in the drive lo neulralize, if not di- rcclly assaull, Ihe island's battered strong-hold of Rabaul. Borgen Bay was the lalest target of more than HO Mitchells.

British and American authorities' were understood to be in conference on the arrangements. Moscow's broadcast that the con-. ference actuary has been held was the opening gun of what is expected to be the biggest barrage yet aimed by the Allies at the apprehensive Axis in a nerve war offensive. As a result of the Thursday night broadcast by U. S. Senator Tom Connaly and the subsequent Moscow announcement that the conference' actually had been held, the decisions doubtless will be published earlier lhan originally intended. Considerations for the safety of Premier-Marshal Joseph Stalin, President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill, the main reason for delaying an announcement, were obviated,. /by the Moscow radio statement/ It said the heads Reds Closing in on Zhlobin, Key Rail Point London, Dec. 4 — (/P)— Red Army troops, sloshing forward through knee-deep snow and mud, were closing in from two directions today on Zhlobin, important German- held rail and communications hub at the juncture of the Gomel-Minsk and Leningrad-Odessa railways in While Russia. Far to Ihe south other Soviet forces plunged deeper into German lines west of their Dnieper river bridgehead below Kremenchug, and hurled back fierce countcral- tacks aimed at the up-river Soviet positions in the Cherkasy area, a Russian communique said. There was no mention in the Soviet bulletin regarding developments in Ihc Kiev bulge, where the Germans sit astride newly-recaptured Zhitomir and Korosten in the Leningrad-Odessa line, but Berlin broadcasts said there had been no clash of major importance in lhat rain-soaked area for the past 30 hours. Gen. Constantino Rokossovsky's white-clad troops were reported raising havoc with the German railway network northwest of Gomel, and the army communique said more than 10 populated places were overrun in Friday's steady advance. Keypoints taken in this Lwo-pronged drive, aimed at enveloping Zhlobin, were Sverjon and Oovsk to the north and Soltanovku and Staruya Rudnya lo Ihe southwest. The latter town is only nine miles from Zhlobin. TOP—On the north side of Ihe Missouri Pacific main-line, looking south down Hervey streel through the newly-constructed underpass.

The line will carry only mail until its success has been proved sufficiently lo transport passengers. Army pilots will be used, but the government lias directed the air force to train Civilian pilots for use on tlxe run, contract ncgotialcd by Mayor Albert Graves and the city council with the Missouri Pacific, Ihe contract providing lhal Ihe railroad would pay all cosls in excess of $10,000. The contract was restricted to thai portion of Ihc underpass serving slrcet traffic—Ihe railroad paying the entire cost of the supporting structure for its tracks, Ben Sira & Co.'s contract was approximately $26,000, for labor alone, with materials bringing the total contract cost to about $33,000. Missouri Pacific nol only paid for its track-supporting structure at Hervey streel bul also bore the entire cost of a pedestrian-underpass, construcled principally for Ihc use of school children, al Washington slrcet .which was finished several months ago. Plans for the Hervey slrcel underpass were drawn by City Engineer C. O. Thomas. M. D. McDowell, resident engineer for Ben Sira & Co., went to work on its construclion September 15, and finished November 30. Cily Engineer Thomas said Ihe newest concrete on ihe job would be 12 days old by Wednesday, December 8—and Ihe structure will therefore be opened to traffic that day. The approach to the underpass from the north side of the tracks is a scries of graceful turns and slants from three diferent slrcels, including North Hervey street, which is Ihe roule lo Slate Highway No. 4 (Washington, Ozan and Nashville). Tlie approach from the south side is through a deep cut at the Hcrvey-Division street intersection. Drainage at the low poinl in Ihe underpass is by gravity, and should give no Irouble in Ihe rainy season, Engineer Thomas said. Because of Ihe war scarcily of melals il was necessary lo build lha railroad's supporling structure out of wood, which required a center pillar lhal divides Ihe underpass inlo Iwo roadways. But as soon as steel is available Ihe railroad will inslall a modern structure, eliminating the center pillar and making a single street-width road- Yellow Cab Taxi Overturns, None Hurt A luxi, owned by Ihe Yellow Cab Co.. overturned' last night on old Highway 67, near Cook's Gin, it was learned today.

The meeting of the leaders of the Untied States, Great Britain and Ihe Soviet Union, which Axis and neutral commentators had reported taking place for several days, was held in Teheran "a few days ago," said a brief announcement recoro, ed by the Soviet monitor. It was the first joint meeting of the "Big Three." The announcement made m an official Soviet news agency broad? cast for provincial Russian papers, said: "A few days ago in Teheran, a conference took place between the leaders of the three Allied powers President Roosevelt, Prime Mmis~ ler Churchill and Preiiner Stalin Diplomatic and military representatives took part in the conference "At the conference, questions on the conduct of the war against Germany were discussed as well as a number of political questions. "Corresponding decisions were adopled which will be made public laler." The announcer inlroduccd Ihe slalcmcnl thus: "I am about to broadcast a statement to be inserted in every newspaper," He read it at dictation speed twice, and then once al ordinary speed for checking purposes.

Secretary of State Cordcll Hull, British Foreign Secretary An- Ihony Eden and Soviet Foreign Commissar Vyacheslav Molotov in Moscow, caught both official London and Washington flatfoolcd. Neither capital had any official news for immediate release. The Soviet monitor said full details of the conference might be announced between noon and 2 p. m.
