ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH SATURDAY. OCTOIU a II. I'M 7 ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 7A Bi Hi kens Duf orcl's Line Hplds Up, Passing Does Its Part; Fumbles at Minimum By Robert Morrison Of the Post-Dispatch Sports Staff. WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 A dream of athletic empire, begun in a postwar era lit St. Louis University, had received its mightiest impetus today from an upset football victory over Georgetown University. Generally rated a touchdown less capable than he Eastern team, the Billikens of Dukes Du-ford convincingly turned back the Hoyas 16-0 before a highly disappointed crowd of 9796 in Griffith Stadium last night. Intersectional reputation, the aim and purpose of athletic expansion at St. Louis, will hardly be acquired by one upset over an opf.nent which also is building to make a comeback to the big time of college football. But the triumph marked the .lrst time since St. Louis began scheduling tougher, distant schools that the Bills have deli'- red the goods. And they won on their own merits. A Little of Kverythlng. Irish Jack Rooney's passing brought the first touchdown. The smashing harassment of the Hoya ball-snapper at center by Billiken Guard L:on (Babe) Pappas resulted In a wild center pass .for an automatic safety in the second period. And the second and last touchdown came by virtue of a blocked punt, recovered and run for the score by Tackle Roland Otto. The Georgetown spread was stopped. The powerful Georgetown line which matched Wake Forest was equalled and surpassed by the BMik. n line on both attack and defense. St. Louis lost the bail on a fumble only once. And the Billikens, well-scouted, confused and pushed the Hoyas back by1 reaching into the bag for new tricks. Ross Nagel, the regular punter, twice completed long passes from fak-kick, third-down situations. Al MundwiMer tried the left-handed pass play. Tommy Shea pulled the Chicago Cardinal special. A fake pass and center plunge to help the opening touchdown drive along. They were rather brilliant, those Billikens who were gaining only their second victory in more than three seasons on a foreign field. Cash In on Aerial Blitz. A 65-yard drive, with Rooney tossing passes to Carl Weisner and Harry Sortal for 50 of those yards, led to the first St. Louis score in nine minutes of play. Sortal took the touchdown pass In the flat on a, play covering nine yards. Shea then made the first of his two place kicks for extra points. On the next kickoff a penalty put Georgetown back on Its goal line, and taking a kick on the Hoya 27-yard line, the Billikens started another drive. But Freddy Broeg's pass went back of the end rone to Jack WuesUing, and another pass failed, to end the threat. St. Louis pressed on In the second period, threatening again with Bob Astroth passing, but Georgetown gained the ball after a touch-back. On the second succeeding play the Hoyas highly rated center, Vic Banonis, snapped the fourth down ball wild beyond Back Elmer Raba and it rolled behind the end xone for a safety. In that first half the Billikens made nine first downs, and Georgetown only three. The Hoyas had little opportunity, and the Bills once drove as far as the enemy's 12-yard line on Rooney's passing. At the half the Bills held a 9-0 lead. Otto Is Johnny n Spot The third period touchdown came mhen a' Hoya halfback, out of position, ran into the charging Otto and knocked the Billiken into the path of Hoya Lou Surman, who was trying to get away a fourth down punt. Otto not only blocked the kick so that it didn't pass the line of scrimmage but cooped up the free ball and ran 33 yards for the score. Shea topped off the perfect evening with his second perfect kick. "Next week, I'm gonna make a halfback out of that Otto," said the delighted Duford after seeing his Bills win their second game in four starts this season. "Wouldn't we really be tip there if we had beaten Marquette, too?" I?ukes asked, adding that St. Louis should have beaten the Milwaukee team. One game will hardly make a season, but the St. Louis boys showed up well, even n the statistics. They were 80 to 64 yards better than Georgetown in rushing, 132 to 69 in passing, and they controlled the game 14 to 6 in first dbwns. Nine of those first downs were by passes. re That Didn't Count. St. Louis passing was even bet-terter than the figures show. There were at least two, maybe three, great heaves that could easily have been called interference agalnut Georgetown. They were not, however, and happily the Bills didn't need the breaks. Things went the way of St. Louis so much that even a Georgetown player from that mid-western part of the country was voted the outstanding Hoya lineman of the game by Washington sports writers. He was Elmer Oberto from Collinsville, 111. After the contest, game Captain Nagel presented the ball to Postmaster General Robert E. Han-negan, one-time Billiken football star who entertained the St. Louis team at a luncheon earlier in the day. The Billikens will arrive at Union Station at 7:40 a.m. tomorrow.) Maurice Wildes Dies.

Coach Ebbie Goodfellow has 18 players, 11 for wards or wingmen. five defense- men and two goalies. Goodfellow plans to send his team through a workout at The Arena tomorrow and the final tune-up for' the league opener against Pittsburgh Tuesday night will be held Monday morning. The workouts will include only skating and shooting practice. This year's Flyer squad should be one of the best conditioned aggregations since the Flyers began play In the American Hockey league In 1944. During the past three weeks Goodfellow has been sending the players through twice-a-day workouts in Port Arthur, and while the personnel of the team hasn't changed much since last season,, the new Flyer leader has instilled a new spirit into the team and has drilled the players in a method of play that should pay dividends in the won and lost column.

His team fin ished fourth the past two seasons, then lost four straight playoff games each time. . . . Catcher RAY MURRAY will change clubs next season, but he'll still be an Indian. The Oklahoma Indians sold him to Cleveland. After the cur Mancuso rent wave of accidents, maybe golfers -will spend more time on the safer links. RALPH GUL-DAHL and GEORGE PAYTON were hurt in a serious auto accident earlier this week. Now DICK MET has a broken finger (a farm implement did it), and DOT KIELTY has to replace several of her teeth and wear head bandages after a recent auto smash-up. , . , The Hershey Bears have traded GINO ROZZINI, plus rights to two rookies to the New York Rangers for NORMAN TUS- TIN and NORM LARSON, and BUS WYCHERLY to Cleveland's LBarons for ROLAND McLENA- WILBERFORCE tallied twice in the ast three minutes to defeat the TUSKEGEE eleven, 20-6. . . . JOHNNY LOGAN and BOB DOLL, the St Louis Bombers' Nos. 1 and 2 scorers last season, have signed with their club for the coming season. ' Texas Christian Wins From Hurricanes, 19-6 MIAMI, Fla., Oct. 11 (AP) A 205-pound Texas tornado named Pete Stout and a reckless abandon for mud gave the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs a 19-6 victory over the University of Miami Hurricanes last night in the Orange Bowl stadium before 28,686 shirt-sleeved football fans. The victorious Texans it was their first triumph of the season wrapped the ball game up for delivery with the aid of Stout and his running mate, Lindy Berry. Stout scored all three Texas touchdowns, but Berry figured in each. Miami led off the scoring in the second period by capitalizing on Al Vaiani's fumble. Halfback Hal Johnston punched across the first tally. Texas gained 249 yards to Miami's 108 in rushing. Both teams kicked well. Miami relied on Hairy Ghaul in 1945 the nation's No. 1 punter and averaged 41 yards. TCU, calling on Carl Knox, averaged 37.4. Outfielder Rickert Sold by Cubs to Reds CHICAGO, Oct 10 (AP) The Chicago Cubs today sold reserve Outfielder Marv Rickert to the Cincinnati Reds for an undisclosed sum.

Trailing McKlnley's defending champions, 12-7, at Public Schools Stadium, Cleveland scored on a 20-yard pass from Dick Ortman to Vernon Grosse and again when Ortman intercepted a McKinley desperation pass and dashed 30 yards to the goal to win, 20-12. McKinley drew first blood when Frank Hauff went 70 yards for a touchdown, and scored again on a 20-yard run by Bill Cornell!. Soldan, without a league victory since 1945, came through with two touchdowns in the final five minutes to defeat Roosevelt, 13-0, last night Beaumont, another strong Public High threat plays Southwest at Public Schools Stadium tonight.

An 87-yard touchdown run by Bernie Waters paced Normandy to a 20-6 victory over Maplewood last night In other Suburban League gamesJack Dieckmeyer's three touchdowns helped Ritenour beat Clayton, 33-19, and Brentwood broke into the scoring column though walloped by St Charles, 37-12. ' Granite City's defending Southwestern Illinois Conference champions were upset by Alton, 7-0, and Collinsville moved into the league lead with a 37-0 triumph over Madison. Edwardsville topped Wood River, 12-6. Superstition didn't stand In East St. Louis's way as the Flyers made it 13 in a row, beating Central Catholic,' 27-0, for the city title. St. Louis Soccer Club Plans Series With Chicago's Top Teams If the visit of Chicago's De Luxe soccer club to Public Schools Stadium tomorrow afternoon proves successful, artistically and financially, the management of the St. Louis Raiders will bring a number of Chicago teams here. Chicago's major soccer league is composed of nine clubs, making possible four games each week with one-club drawing a bye. It is the intention of the Raiders' management to bring this idle club to St Louis each Sunday if possible. Negotiations to that end have been started, according to Nick Jost, one of the owners of the St Louis team. Tomorrow's game starts at 2:30 p.m. Spink Recommends U.N. Back Sandlot Baseball J. G. Taylor Spink, commissioner of the National Baseball Congress and publisher of the Sporting News, recommended today that an international sandlot series be started in Washington next year and transferred annually to capitals of other nations. Spink sent his proposal to Tryg-vie Lie, secretary general of the United Nations, at Lake Success, N. Y. Spink suggested that the entire program be exclusively under the sponsorship pf the U.N. In Spink's plan, the United States would be represented annually by the winner of the national tournament at Wichita, Kan. St. Lauls U., 16; Georgetown 0. Cleveland, 20; McKinley, 1.

CONGRESSMAN SAYS TRUMAN HAS FOOD PLAN BACKWARDS WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 (AP) Flat more meat and poultry, says nepresentative, Andresen (Rep.), Minnesota. That is the only way grain consumption can be cut down on farms in this country, he told a reporter. "If we all eat more meat and poultry," he explained, "farmers will slaughter more cattle and hogs and fowl, and thus there will be fewer of them to eat the grain. President Truman and Secretary Anderson have it backwards." FOOD-SAVING DRIVE NOT AFFECTED BY GAIN IN CORN CROP I 'on tin n-1 I1 nun faun Onis. wheat yield. A 100,000,000-bushel gain over the September prediction of 2,403,913,000 bushels mtRht hnvn Hllowcd somti Prising of ths voluntary meatless and poult rylcss days. Must Save Ifivery Bushel. Anderson, in a ladio address, said that even if the 54,000,000-bushrj gain hnd been clear windfall, instead of belnj? offset by old-crop losses, "we couldn't afford to let down on the conservation campaign." "The need is so great," he said, "that we must save every bushel possible not only to relieve suffering in foreign lands but also because every saving we make in foods made from grain or in foods produced with grains means a move against inflation." Americans were urged to save more food now so that their own future supplies may be assured. The possibility of further belt-tightening was raised by the outlook for fall-seeded grains in the Great Plains. Pointing out that reserves of wheat at harvest time next year will be small, Anderson said "it may be necessary to save grain for a greater carry-over (reserve) as well as for export" lie said there was no assurance now that crop conditions next year will be so good as to make a low reserve safe. The crop report said fall seeding of winter wheat and rye for harvest next spring is being delayed in rich producing areas of western Kansas, Oklahoma, northwestern Texas and New Mexico because of dry weather. A midsummer drouth in the Midwest is largely responsible for this year's small corn crop and the current tight grain situation. President Truman's request for the voluntary meatless Tuesdays and eggless and poultryless Thursdays has been criticized by sqme organizations and individuals,, and there have been some protests against the proposed 60-day shutdown of the nation's distilleries. Distilleries Agree to Shutdown. The food committee reported that a clear majority of the major distillers has agreed to a 60-day shutdown to save grain for Europe. Of 39 companies represented here Wednesday when Luckman proposed the shutdown, 18 gave assent on the spot. A spokesman for Luckman reported today that five more firms wired their agreement yesterday. Twenty -three major distillers now hsve agreed to the shutdown, with 16 still to be heard from. One of the messages came under protest. J. A. Engelhard, president of the Distilled Spirits Institute, an organization representing 60 per cent of the industry, warned that the whisky-making holiday will bring "serious unemployment" as well as cattle-feeding problems. Nevertheless, Engelhard said thnt his concern,' Glenmore Distilleries Co., and its subsidiaries would suspend operations if the shutdown was ordered. He has stated the shutdown probably could start about Oct. 25. Livestock now being fed on distillery by-products will "have to be fed on whole grain," he said. Little grain will be saved, therefore, he said, and the problem of feeding the large number of animals in feeding lots near distilleries will be "a serious one." "We also feel," Englehard added, "that labor should be given an opportunity to be heard before any final decision is made." One distillery workers union officer has estimated that 100,000 workers would be laid off. Little Chang in Trices. Meanwhile, the nation's housewives found little change in most food prices at retail markets from their high levels of the last several months. Although observance of the voluntary meatless and poultryless days for the first time this week did not receive full support, millions of homemakers apparently have joined in the Presi dent s food saving program. Truman has said the responsibility for the success of the campaign "rests very largely" with the American housewife. Livestock and grain prices continued their upward trend today. On the Chicago Board of Trade, December wheat advanced to a new record of $2.95 for that future contract before selling orders brought the price down to $2.93, "A cent to l?i above yesterday's close. Later a carload of No. 1 hard wheat sold on the cash grain market for $3.00,, the highest price for the cash grain since 1920. In December 1919 and aJnuary 1920 cash wheat sold for $3.50 a bushel. At Kansas City, Mo., a car of No. 2 hard wheat brought $3.15 a bushel, the highest price paid in the Kansas City cash pits since 1917. ( The record high for any wheat future was $3.25 made by the May future in May 1917, and the March future hit $3.05 in March of this year. On the Chicago Board of Trade, corn was 3 to 4 cents higher near the end of the first hour, December selling at $2.28. Oats were ?i to 1 higher. December $1.20. At Joplin, Mo., members of the Southwest Missouri Restaurant Association agreed last night to feature meatless items on their menus Tuesday and on Thursdays to suggest patrons eat dishes that do not contain poultry or eggs. They did not eliminate meat, poul try or eggs from their menus, however, leaving it up to the patron what he eats.

As he strode from the courtroom, Marks collapsed. Physicians later reported that he apparently had had an attack of diabetes, for which he has been receiving treatment.
