New York, Dec. 4 (fP)— Probably the most talkcd-about play of Ihe 1943 gridiron season was Steve Lach's pass that enabled Great Lakes to whip Notre Dame when the Irish were just a half minute away from being one of the great all-time football teams. At least Iwo other games ended in even more spectacular fashion, however, and only the fact that Lach's heave ruined a 4 perfect season for Notre Dame lifted it out of the ordinary 46-yard pass-and-run play class, a survey of the season spectacular plays by the Associated Press showed today. There were only 65 seconds to go when Notre Dame took a 14-12 lead and the Irish kicked off out of bounds . Lach completed one pass to the 46 then, with 35 seconds left, Paul Anderson gathered it in seven yards from the goal and romped across with no one near him. Joe Makar and Dick Tuschak of Maryland improved consideraly on that performance by connecting on an 89-yard pass and run in the last ten seconds to beat Wake Forest 13 to 7 and Ohio State didn't win over Illinois until some 12 minutes after the game apparently ended. Maryland's Makar made his pass from the 11-yard line to the 25 and Halfback Tuschak ran the remaining 75 yards. Ohio State's triumph came on what was perhaps the "screwiest" play of a season marked by several time mixups due to the failures of official clocks. The game apparently had ended in a 26-26 tie and the teams had left the field when the officials came UD with Answers to Questions You Wont to Know About Joining Arkansas Training Unit of Women's Army Corps WAC Q.

Called back from the dressing rooms, the players lined up again and John Stungis, a third-string quarterback who had celebrated his 18th birthday the day before, kicked a field goal from the 23- yard line to make the final score 29-26. It was the* first field goal the Ohio Slate youngster ever had kicked. The longest scoring run recorded in the survey was a 98-yard dash by Fulback Meredith Warner of Iowa State against the Iowa Navy Pre-FHght School. As he sprinted the last 20 yards, George Van Hagen, Scahawk end, urged him along with slaps at the seat of his pants. For the records, the Sea- hawks won 33-13. Ohio State's Dean Sensanbaugher ran 97 yards against Great Lakes only to be pulled down three yards from the goal. Eddie McGovern of .Illinois, Billy Houck of Arkansas A. and M. and Paul Baker of Colorado College all made 95 yard touchdown runs after intercepting passes. One of the most spectacular game winning plays brought,March Field, Calif.,: a 7-jS- decision over the.St.lMaVy's Pre : Flight School. 'After St. Mary's scared, Jack Jacobs took the kickoff, ran 40 yards and lateraled to Center Bucking- lam, who, after a few yards, ossed another lateral to Quarter- >ack Ollie Day, Day completed the 97-yard scoring play. of merely saying yes or no on a question of rules inlerprelation, Landis began making very pointed queries about whether the major league owners and big minors had used their working agreements as a club over the little fellows and who helped entertain that southern sheriff — reported to be the most popular guy in town because 'he held the controlling vote in one league. The Big Question What apparently puzzled Landis about the whole affair was why a :iass "E" club, for example, would vote to deprive itself of voting Bovver in the National Associalion.

DUFFIE, Secretary. December 4 V 11, 1013- Market Report (Continued From Page One) mcnts which might have been made to release such an important announcement, his prediction, however, was a purely personal observation. In the absence of an official com- munique, It was believed that these steps probably will stem from the conference: 1. A formal ultimatum to the German people to overthrow Hitler and his Nazis or take the brunt of the growing Allied war power. 2. Bigger aerial blows on Germany, especially Berlin. 3. The promised second front involving Allied land operations on the grcatcsl scale, synchronized with developments on the eastern front and in the Mediterranean. Decisions on the diplomatic front might include: 1. A bid to Axis satellites to abandon Berlin. 2. A plan for the occupation and policing of Germany. 3. A broad outline on how the peace may be kept secure in Europe. Tadeusz Romer, Polish ..foreign minister, told the Associated Press his government was urgently hope- ing such a conference would also produce an understanding capable of forming the basis for future ordial colaboralion by the Sovicls. It was believed the chief concern of the parley centered on military questions since all three leaders arc fully aware the Allies still face a formidable:enemy, whose power in some ways becomes more consolidated as his armies withdraw' into a smaller space. For President Roosevelt and Premier Stalin the conference, held close to Russia, was their first -neeting and it was the first time the marshal had left the Soviet Union since the revolulion.

This was Washington's reaction i the Moscow radio announcement he "big three" had completed icir extraordinary sessions al Tehran and that a statement would c issued later, perhaps today, out- ning the military and political dc- isions reached.

The fact is our town bought $12,000 worth of farm properly norlh of here and was prepared to lay out, with federal aid, a 600-acre airport which would have accom- odatcd airliners. Along came the Southwestern Proving Ground, however, and it now appears that the city's airport site, lying between Hope and the SPG, is condemned for flying purposes because the take-off and landing ranges would conflict with either the firing range on the SPG or the flying range of Ihe big bombers on the SPG mililary air port. There has been no recent statement on this matter, but the doom of our present municipal airport sile is apparently sealed by the likely facts in the case, and the further evidence that the transcontinental route of American Airlines has been switched away from the north side of town (SPG neighborhood) to the south side. * * * Here arc some questions to be answered about our dormant airport property: 1.

If the SPG construction has impaired the value of the city's property in any way then the entire present site should be junked. And in this event isn't the City of Hope damaged just as much as any farmer who was compelled to evacuate his home and land in the SPG reservation? The city should sell its present "white elephant" at present top-market prices, buy another good and valid airport site, and ask the federal government to make good the difference in priq.es. 3. Some wise acres around town keep thinking out loud, "Why invest city money in an airport when maybe the federal government sooner or later will give us the $1,300,000 military airport adjacent to the Proving Ground?" Says you. Give me the name of just one military establishment that the federal government has donated to a city. And even if the SPG is ever liquidated what makes you think the Army Air Corps is going to shake loose of a first-class military airport — regardless where it is? Anybody who has any evidence on this matter ought to speak up NOW. Central Pacific. The Nipponese, in turn, carried out their first bombing mission against Tarawa and Makin islands since American capture of the Gilberts. They wounded three men and inflicted minor damage on Tarawa, There was no damage on Makin, the navy's report said. On the ground, too, the Japanese failed in counterattacks seeking to throw back advancing Australians on the Huon peninsula in Northeastern New Guinea. In China, the Chinese high command said Japanese forces in Northern Hunan province had been defeated. Prime Minister John Curtin of Australia declared, however, the jffcrisive against Japan "must not only be maintained but increased n temp." Otherwise, he warned he enemy will have the time to develop the rich natural resources of its conquered empire and exploit he huge pool of slave labor. Big American Liberators made .heir deepest recent strike at uardian bases of that empire in three raids on Hare island in the Kapinga-Marangi atoll 800 miles northwest of Guadalcanal and only 400 miles south by'east of Truk, Japanese bastion in the Pacific. The latest attack, Dec. 2, smashed seaplane base installations of the little banana-shaped island. Army ,Liberators bombed Mil! in lhc"Mar'shalls and Nauru, 500 miles west of the Gilberts, Saturday without encountering any enemy opposition. The Tokyo radio, in reportt ing new Allied raids on the Marshalls yesterday, asserted 20 of the 100 raiders were shot down. It quoted the Japanese imperial headquarters as admitting some damage. The broadcast claimed Japanese naval fliers had pursued the Allied task force and had sunk one medr ium-sizcd aircraft carrier and a large cruiser. Two other ships were said to have been damaged.

By LLOYD STRATTON Teheran, Nov. 29 — (Delayed) —(/P)— The story of the meeting between President mier Stalin and Roosevelt, Pre- Primc Minister Churchill which will last the longest probably will be the story told in picture's. Nearly every significant feature of the mecling and ils personalities were photographed. But to me the most outstanding and graphically colorful ceremonies of all were those held today in the Russian embassy shortly before the termination of the conference. Gathered there was the greatest concentration of global power ever, as-, sembled: under the .same -roof; ••;,.? First came the solemn, impressive presentation of a Stalingrad sword to Stalin. The sparkling crimson sheathed an RAF commodore. A 22-piece Russian army band, at a signal sounding like "brrrnsk," played the "International" and Ihen "God save the King" whije Churchill stood to salute Stalin with right arm raised and hand halfclenched, A British officer picked up and held the sword rigidly before him while Churchill spoke on behalf of the king about the "steel-hearted citizens of Stalingrad." Stalin replied with a low-voiced expression of appreciation. Stalin .... took" .the sword from Churchill's out- stretched hands, tisscd the naked blade and handed it Marshal Klemcnti U. Voro- shilov. A Russian officer, using the arm-swinging, stiff-legged Soviet ceremonial march, took the symbol from Voroshiloy, wheeled and with snap and precision marched from lie room Voroshilov later brought back the sword to show it to Roosevelt and the others. The gathering then moved put to the while-pillared portico where a large number of American and Rus sian news and motion picture photographers had a field day. The president wore a natty pale green soft-collared shirt, blue suit and tic. While photogrpahcrs worked the president remarked to Churchill: "A nice view from here."

I am aware of one possibility that would reduce both the need and size of a municipal airport — the newly-invented helicopter, which rises vertically, and which therefore needs but small landing space. Yesterday's newspapers disposed of the helicopter, definitely, for some years to come, G rover Loening, helicopter ex- perl and a member of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, was quoted <by the Associated Press in a dispatch from New York December 4 as saying: "Five to 10 years of intensive peacetime research will be needed to put the helicopter into general public use. "Dismissing any rosy idea of helicopters landing in the back yard pr on skyscraper roofs as •nonsense' 'the helicopter expert declared: The helicopter for the next few years is limited to usage by professional aviators. As things stand today, the helicopter is an even more professional apparatus than the airplane'." So that's that. Man has conquered the mystery of vertical flying, but not for practical civilian use for some years to come. Air transport, including private flying, will still depend, for perhaps 10 years, on horizontal speed and long runways — and commercial long-distance flying always will so depend.

The Stalingrad sword was wrought in London by Tom Beasley, a veteran artisan who has made all the -ceremonial swords in Britain for several decades. It was inscribed to the Soviet heroes' who defended the city. The domed, sky-lighted room carried a bluish-gray color scheme with four draped windows on the south side and the opposite wall broken by two big fire places. In filed 16 British soldiers, specially chosen from the Buff regiment, who lined up in front of the fireplaces. They were followed by an honor guard of 22 Russian officers, who marched and took their places in a double line before the windows, Each was armed with a tommy-gun and wore black boots, blue breeches, olive drab : tui\ics with red shoulder boards and black visored caps circled by red bands and with a gold star in front. The highest military figures of this war and the diplomats grouped themselves around the room with Roosevelt quietly taking a seat in the southwest corner where the photographers also congregated. Suddenly Vuacheslav Molotov, Soviet foreign commissar, entered, walked to the table, surveyed the scene and departed. Then came Stalin, appearing noiselessly and clad in a plain khaki beige uniform with gold starred cpauiels. He was wearing a single dccoralion, Iho Order of Lenin. A few seconds later Churchill walked in wearing the uniform of who speaks Russian. Taking closcups, he found he was blocking Stalin's view and apologized. He was told: "All right, never mind." The principals were pictured first alone, and then with military and diplomatic chiefs. In the interval Ihe president introduced Churchill's daughter, "Mrs. Sarah Oliver, "to Stalin. The Russian premier rose and shook hands. The president good naturedly beckoned photographers on the top steps and told them to turn, their cameras on the crowd watching the ceremony. My watch clocked 27 minutes shooting time, plus 16 minutes at the sword ceremony. Photogrpah- ers were happy that neither Roose velt nor Churchill smoked during the entire time. Rev.

First in the British Isles in 1907 then in the United States in 1910 Scouting came forth to meet the challenge of tremendous and important needs in every normal boys life, giving him VISION and LEADERSHIP which culminates ultimately in nimble fingers, trained minds, sound bodies, reverent hearts, unselfish service and intelligent citizenship. The HOME the SCHOOL the STATE and the CHURCH ought all to be deeply interested in the Scout organization and program for it's fruits are their dividents. This City should this year make a greater investment than ever in Scouting, thus helping measureably to safeguard the richest heritage of our community. THOS. BREWSTER, Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Sponsor of Troop No. 5.8- Count Ciano Reported Shot by Germans . London, Dec. 6 —(/P)— A Reuters dispatch from the Swiss-Italiai frontier said today Count Galeazzo Ciano, former Fascist Foreign Minister of Italy and Benito Mus solini's son-in-law, was shot thi morning by a firing squad, accord ing to reports reaching the fronl icr. Mussolini's son-in-law turnci against him in the Grand Counci meeting last July which ousted th lescreditcd Ducc as Italy's dicta r. The reports, which were not cor firmed, said Ciano was shot in th lack after being accused of hig reason and sentenced to death b i special court of Mussolini's "re publican fascist" government, 3crman puppet organization, Th execution was said lo have lake place somewhere in Northern Italy. The life of the 40-year-old count was a story-book tale of a rise to right-hand man to Mussolini in the ney-day of fascism, of great popularity, prestige and wealth, and then, when the regime was tottering a break with his father-in-law. By last October, Mussolini's former affection for his esteemed son- in-law had changed until "his only feeling for him is sheer hate," Marshal Pictro Badoglio reported. For Ciano, at the last and fateful meeting of the fascist grand council the night of last July 24 was one of 19 members who voted in favor of Mussolini's resignation. Five voted for Ihe duce. There was another reason for Ciano's fall from grace German antipathy for him. At the time of his dismissal as foreign minister and appointment as ambassador the Vatican last February it was widely reported the Nazis, particularly Hitler and foreign minister Joachim Von Rib- disliked • and distrusted a desperate attempt smashing Allied drives. A flame- throwing tank was captured by the British. ' : A counterattack west of Venafro was hurled back by the Fifth Army with severe losses. Lt.-Gen. Mark W.

The British destroyers bombarded the, coastal road between Pescara and Giulianova, sent shells screaming into the coastal towns of Ancona and San Benedetto, and sank three enemy coastal craft and a merchant vessel. Aerial • support of the Allied _round. forces-was limited by bad weather, but the enemy-held Yugo slav port of Split was bombed yes tcrday by medium bombers and a floating dock at Orbetello, on Italy's west coast, was hit and left burning. The British Eighth Army's drive to the Moro river represented a gain of about two and a half miles from San Vito, whose capture was announced yesterday, and carried the Adriatic offensive to within 14 miles of Pescara. oentrop, Mm. Diplomatic gossip had it that in 1939 Hitler called Ciano to Salzburg and told him the German army would march into Poland anc he believed the war could be con fined to the east. Ciano, speakint for Mussolini, warned Hitler the war could not be localized, that he "couldn't get away with" anothei aggression "You ass," Hitler was reported Allied Planes Use Tactics to Fool Nazis London, Dec. 6 —(/P)— Allied air might, apparently changing tactics to confuse Nazi defenders, turned from shattered German cities yes- erday to occupied France, loosing .eavy and medium bombers and ighler planes in a smashing blow .t enemy targets, American Flying Fortresses con cntraled on unspecified targets in ic Nazi-dominated country the irst time in more than two months, nd U.

RAF, Canadian and Allied fighters also joined in the activities over France. The daylight assaults were a fol- owup to RAF Mosquito raids on Western Germany Saturday night, and kept under way the sustained day and night assaults which sent Allied planes over Europe almost continuously during the past week and heaped new destruction on already-burning Berlin.

Heavily underscoring the urgen cy of the military phase, the com bined British and American gener al staffs subsequently returned to Cairo, scene of the N : ov . . 22-26 meeting of Chinese Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek with President Roosevelt and the prime minister, and staged concentrated planning sessions from last Friday through .oday. Churchill joined in these and other'sessions, leading to the probability other disclosures of paramount international importance are still to come. President Roosevelt's whereabouts; since the.

We have reached complete agreement as to the, scope and tiniming of operations which will be undertaken from the east, west and south. "The common understanding which we have reached guarantees that victory will be'ours. "No power on earth can prevent our destroying the German armies by land, their U-boats by sea and heir war plants from the air. Our attacks will be relentless and increasing." Peace — "We are sure that our concord will make it an enduring peace. We recognize fully the su- oreme responsibility resting upon us and all the United Nations to make a peace which will command the good will of the • overwhelming masses of the peoples of the world and vanish the scourge and terror of war for many generations, We shall seek the cooperation and active participation of all nations, large and small, whose peoples in heart and mind are dedicated,, as arc our own peoples, to the elimination of tyranny and slavery, oppression and intolerance. We will welcome them as they may choose to come into a world family of Democratic nations. The concluding paragraph of one declaration devoted to the status of Iran as an ally of the three na? tions apparently was the key to the envisaged "world family of Democratic nations.' After expressing their respect for Iran's independence and territorial integrity, and promising economic aid to that country which has faci- lialed Ihe flow of Allied supplies to Russia, the three leaders said "They (The United States, Britain and Russia) count upon Ihe participation of Iran together with all other peace-loving nations in the establishment of international peace, security and prosperity after ihc war in accordance' with the principles of the Atlantic charter, to which all four governments have continued to subscribe."
