18 Sept. 22, 1949 tttitn City Globe-Guelte, Mason City, la. It's a Sad Story— Notre Dame Lacks Army, Cornell Receive Nod as Football Powers in East Depth South, Bend, Ind., (U.R)— There's no doubt -Notre Dame's string of 28 football games without defeat will 'end this year, Coach Frank Leahy said Thursday. "The question i$ how many will we lose," he said. "I can't pick, any 2 or 3 toughest teams on our schedule," he added. "I can name you 8 of them, and I won't say which 2 I don't rate with the other 8. That would not be smart coaching." Leahy figures the Irish will be weak in the middle of the line, in pass defense and in reserves. Backs Too Little ."We just don't have that fast offensive line we did the last 2 years," he said. "And our backs are too short to defend well against passes. They're, too little to be good blockers. They'll try, but they're just too little." Notre Dame opens against Indiana this Saturday, arid while Leahy wouldn't admit that his team should beat the Hoosiers, preparing for better things some other years, the Irish should get a thorough test. ; There are , only 3 ends, Leahy figures, but one of them is Ail- American Leon Hart. On the other side Bill Wightkin proably will be the starter with Sophomore Jim Mu^tscheller the top reserve for both sides. Short on Line Reserves Former End Jim Martin will By JIM BECKER ~Ne\v York, (#>)—The 4 teams that figure to be the top 2 around here are the offensive and defensive platoons of Army and Cor- hold down one tackle job while Sophomore Bill Toneff will be the mainstay, despite inexperience, on the other side. Reserves here are extremely poor while the same situation applies to the guards. Both Marty Wendell and Bill Fischer, guard mainstays previously, have graduated and their reserves from 1948, Bob Lally and Frank Johnson, have been injured, so it looks like Sophomore Paul Burns in Johnson's spot with Lally the 2nd starter should he recover completely. Jerome Groom probably will be the offensive center and also come back with Walt Grothaus and John Helwig to act as linebackers. Sitko at Fullback The. backfield will be fast and experienced, but small without any hope of consistent blocking. Leahy plans to start Bob Williams, a junior who has thrown only 14 competitive passes, at quarterback with Larry Coutre and Billy Gay at the halfbacks. For fullback he has switched Emil "Red" Sitko from halfback to. take advantage of his power running and speed. There are some standout reserves for these, chiefly sophomores. John Mazur has looked exceptionally good as 2nd string quarterback, while Billy Barrett, a shift runner, has stood out in drills as a nifty running halfback. Gay looked to be the most important back in the field lor Leahy plans to use him with Mike Swistowicz and 'John Petitbon' as his defensive backfield, at least until injuries remove some one of the trio. George "Lefty" James' Big Red club, and the Cadets of the Plains under Earl "Red" Blaik, are the stickout favorites. Both are enthusiastic exponents of the 2-platoon system, which indicates that be it ever so confusing, it's effective. Good '48 Records Each has lost a few fine players, but they still have plenty of talent around. Last season, Cornell lost only to Army in marching to the Ivy title in James' 2nd year at the helm. A tie with Navy was all that marred the Cadets' slate. This season the teams do not meet. Among Cornell's returnees are players who were a big help in the Penn victory that won the Ivy title. In addition, James admits "we have a great bunch of kids." A couple of holes in the line must be plugged by these newcomers, and James needs to develop a punter. Quarterback Pete Dorset, one of the better passers hereabout, again will call the plays. The Cornells face Niagara, Colgate, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Syracuse, Dartmouth and Penn in that order. The Niagara, Colgate and Syracuse games are outside the Ivy group. At West Point, Blaik has fellows like Gil Stephenson, who rolled up a huge chunk of yardage from, fullback last season, and Arnold Galiffa, who is as good as aily- Twin Cities Seek Major League Club St. Paul, Minn., (U.R)—Mayor Edward K. Delaney said Thursday that he has written "exploratory letters" to officials of the St. Louis Browns in an effort to get the : team ior the Twin Cities area. Delaney Wednesday conferred with Mayor Eric Hoyer of Minneapolis on the matter and afterwards remarked that "I think we're ready for the big leagues. If the Browns will come here,, we want them." Bruce Dudley, president of the American Association, said in a radio interview that bringing the Browns to the Twin Cities would be a "good idea." He intimated that the Association, which has teams at both cities, would approve the idea. NAME ATHLETES OF WEEK AT EAGLE GROVE Eagle Grove—The Quarterback club, headed by Harold Kamm former coach of Tarkio college has named 4 athletes as athlete; of the week. The 1st 2 named were Lynn Howell, senior in the Eagle Grove high school, and Tommy Chelesvig, junior. Las week Duane Tideback and Keitl Cook, who were outstanding in the junior college game with Mason City, were named by the club. GIL STEPHENSON —To Lead Cadets He'll improve on last year's record. Princeton beat both Yale a'.id Harvard for the Big 3 crown last season, but will find that feat tougher this year. Rutgers measured the Tiger, but will miss the great Frank Burns for '49. Little St. Bonaventure, where Hugh Devore is building another giant killing eleven, faces a coast- to - coast schedule. Colgate was sub-par last year and looks for improvement. Set Benefit Grid Game Eagle Grove—F r i t z Wooster who is in charge of arrangement for the annual Lions benefit foot ball game in Eagle Grove, has an nounced that the game is to b played Oct. 20 with the Wartbur college B squad of Waverly. evuews CARL WRIGHT Latest of the tuneful and en- ertaining western films featuring toy Rogers and his Palomino Trigger, "Down Dakota Way" >pens Friday at thxj Palace.

Blaik Armv Liska Likes UCLA, Selects Marquette to Beat Wisconsin By JERRY I.ISKA Chicago, (£>)—Trying to get off on the right grid prognosticating foot: Michigan 19, Michigan State 13 —Michigan has a slicker backfield combination than meets the eye. So it should be 24 in a row for the Big Ten champion Wolverines. The sharpening Spartans, however, will make it quite a debate, wishing their L,ynn Chandnois was more than one guy. Northwestern, 14, Purdue 7— Even with Harry Szulborski sound of limb, Purdue can't match the well-season Rose Bowl champions. This Big Ten solo opener should be a stout straw in the title wind for Northwestern, which has early dates with Minnesota and Michigan. Notre Dame 28, Indiana 6— That's being kind to the Hoosiers, who may start as many as 5 sophomores . against the Irish. Notre Dame will make it 29 games without defeat and see how well Quarterback Bob Williams will fit into the Tripucka - Lujack - Bertelli groove. Minnesota 21, Washington 0— thing around at quarterback. The entire Army offensive platoon is made up of veteran players, and only 4 sophomores figure to break into the defensive set up. Out to Retain Trophy The Cadets meet their test early playing Penn State, Michigan, Harvard and Columbia on the first 4 Saturdays in October. If they hurdle that opposition, the Lambert Trophy, symbolic of eastern football supremacy should stay in the Cadets' trophy case. It's been there 4 of the last 5 years. Columbia,won only 4 and lost 5 with a veteran ' team that was wiped out by graduation. Lou Little is relying on Leon Van Bellingham, about the only experienced back left, and Leon didn't see too much action in 1948. But Little isn't too discouraged. He likes the looks of his sophomores and figures he'll make trouble, as usual. Syracuse to Improve Syracuse had a woeful season, and as is frequently the case, comes up with a new coach this campaign.
