PAGE EIGHT BI.YTHRVILLE. (AUK.) COUKIKK NRWR ItJISlO Diamcncl Pastime more Na;.'" tiona! Sport of.Japan' than ' 'America Says Norgren. Bj >iE.t Drrvlrc ; CHICAGO.—It will take n championship American bajeb.ill to If successful In 'future Invnslons of Japan. That is trt belief o[ Nc!s Ni>v rcn, liead baseball coach nt tlv University of Chicago, whose 19)3 nine played a 15-gamc schedule In the Orient. • "There has been an astonishing development of tlie came In Japan since I was there with a Chicago team five years ago," Norgrcu said. "Every youngster seems'to be' playing now. In fact, bnsebap Is rocr™ the national sport there than il is In this country. "Japansosc colleges liavc three c;- four .complete teams and llicsr teams play the year round wlih two big series, one liv the spi- and another lale In the summer. Those series arc the country's gcsl sports events. Why. the colleges attract tremendous crowds o! 70.000." Japan has built up her atlil""-- so fast that she now Is having difficulty with eliglbillly ami rairuli- Ing questions similar to those wh' troubled American colleges before suitable standards were adopted. Coach Norgren *ild. "Mechanically, they nrc finely developed. They have fine coaches nncl "•Tk hard, most learns iiractlcliu; five hours a day with unbroken effort. Their pitchers have fine control and rapidly are actjiilrinR the speed of American pitchers. Their fielders Jump with the crack of the bat, throw well and show Ihe finish of a big leaguer." Coach Norgren wild that Japanese professional umpires arc first rate. They make lew mistakes. They Insist that a\ strike be over the plate between the batter's knccr flnicl the letters on his shirt, and .not often will they give much margin on the corners.

Looking In By "DUKE," ing of nny section in records o! the Rose w PPAUOIER ,: -.-'. . Scienw, Plus FJjrM -/The year has seen some remark•'.'able comebacks. Underdogs in football,' In surprising upsets have surpassed wlia^ was expected of them and the mighty have taken a tumble. One of the most heroic examples Is Columbia. In her game with Cornell, the guessing was not as to . the victor, but the score. The rosiest hopes of Columbia's supporters asked 'merely that the disaster b; minimized by as few touchdowns as possible under the circumstances. Columbia beat Cornell. In doing HJ tee Lions ployed a game of football thiS was scientifically designed 10 CtSKt ibe strJe of game the Ith- Sram hive adopted. H was a labo- ratcry triumph. In a way. One Part of It . Ofcrabia used a light linj, scouts hiring brought in t'r.e information Ihst rffithing need be feared from ComtH in the ^cay of end runs. The job -«as to stop Viviano's plunges through that line. Columbia's line charged ioi- and straijni ahead on defense, piling up the porrer plays before they were fairly started. Ween Cornell assumed the double wing-back formation, Columbia tickles plunged head on into the Cornell ends. When Cornell played single wing-back, Columbia over- shifted, gambling that the end and secondary mail on the weak side of the .line cou'.d sicp any swinj to the short side. No such sTi-in? was erpected. because unusual jpsed is required to gain by sucr, «. move. And Another Columbia had the clinically perfect defense for Cornell. But thers •was another factor in the Lions' victory that no great triumph bckc —the element o! fig>,t that Lou little's men displayed. It required courage and persistence to rally in . the face of what was predicted as defeat, and it'took faith to follow • the plans adopted. Columbia fought like a tiger. The plan they used called for the most .exacting efforts by linemen and secondary. The team never faltered. You might debate for hours on the relative importance of tlie twi factors that won for Columbia— science or fight. The answer seems to be that in modern football you can't get anywhere without a little of both. The Noble Rally The year has seen other triumphs of the underdog. Navy made n splendid rally after a bad start and defeated Princeton. New York University took • Fordhnin's lusty wallop on the chin and went right n\vay from there and defeated Carnegie Tech. cnc of the stronpest teams in Ihe cast. Duke was disastrously routed by North Carolina Memphis Tigers And Nile Hawks To (Hash Sunday MEMPHIS, IUP)—A rclurn game witli the Milwaukee Nile Hawk:! will be played by the 'Memphis Tigers, profootball learn and claimants of Ihe World Tills, here Sunday- Nov. 1C at Hodges Field. The Nile Hawks were the team lo defeat the Tigers this year, winning 9 to 0. Last yaar the Tigers defeated the Green Bay Packers, winners of the National Pro championship, but earlier in the rea:on lost to "Red" Orange and :ars. Later the Tig- mes. b.alintr among others Na d Vllhimvn. After being nosed out, by Michigan after victory seemed (D br well In hand. took Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois in her stride. Northwestern took a'fall out of Tulane, but the New Orleans team snapped out of it lo win four In a row from Its next rivals. Add to your list of oilier comebacks Iowa and Nebraska. Coaches, aided by scouts, devised many of these reversals. Careful laboratory planning had a great deal to do with the upsets. •'Bui a beaten team must fight to rally. Tne best laid plans of mice and men must be executed with faith and fight to win. There is something more to this "dying for dear old Rutgers" Ihan mere talk.
