I R oclcetsr Air Power in 4th SinlcF . V !8. . if; 0ml i n re ' ilMJSUPFJOa Flanagan's Pass Conversion Matches Old Dudley Thrillers djf RAYMOND JOHNSON -J Dudley Field has seen many screwy and unusual plays since it was dedicated in 1922 in that famous scoreless draw between VanderDUt and the University of Michigan, Probably tops of all-time was the sensational nass Bobby Dodd, now head coach at Georgia Tech. made to Buddy Hackman In the 1930 Vanderbilt-Tennessee battle. . Trapped for a huge loss, the cunning Dodd weaved mnA bobbed in and out of Commodore arms behind the line. At one time it looked like he would be thrown for a loss of 20 yards or more. Then Bobby spied Buddy Hackman near the. west sideline. He uncorked a pass like an outfielder throwing to the date. The ball soared down the field into the arms of Hackman near the side line and Buddy zigzagged his way more than hair the distance of the field for a touchdown. Flanagan Provides Big Thrill Another iust as daffv hanoened Saturday as the hustling Air Transport Command Rockets made their initial appearance with-a sensational triumph over the Amphibious Naval Force of Fort . Pierce, Fla. It happened on the attempted conversion after Dick Emerson s boys scored their tirst toucnaown. Preston Flanatraiu the former Texas end,: was slated tn trv the pnn version from Tilacement. The center pass f:was low and the ball was fumbled. ; Flanagan picked it nn -anA nHemnte a droh-kirkr - He fizzled the ball. It riir a lineman nd hounded back.

Thi.r. rr.kkH thm hall about the time he touched the end zone and he had a point that practically everyone thought was impossible to acore during nil the contusion. Confusion at Half Considerable confusion arose at the half when time expired with the ATC having possession of the ball on thr Amphibs nine-yard line and a first down. Coach Emerson and Erny Pinkert, his assistant, both exchanged hot words with Referee 8haky Kain, one of the finest . officials in the nation. The Rockets had taken time out because of an Injured player, the only thing that would stop the watch In the last two minutes of the half. The clock showed eight seconds remained before the half. A substitute was sent In, the referee stepped back, and before the baU was snapped, Kaln blew his whistle and started toward center for the ball. It was snapped before he got there. . . -,- ... Players, Jans.PuzzJe ' The players aa well as the spectators were at a loss to know why the play was allowed to be completed since the ball had been napped. .... . 1 The clock at the end of the stadium was the official time piece for the game. The split-second it showed time was up Kain blew hie whistle which ended the play. But the : playere and coaches thought that since the ball was snapped almost simultaneously with the whistle they should be able to complete it They were wrong. : . ' Rule 4, Section 3, Article 4, covers the situation. It says "During the last two minutes of either half, requests for excessive time outs' by fiejd captains when no injured player is designated shall be refused, and if the team In possession of the ball having exhausted its three legal 'time outs' like the ATC had) takes time out to make a substitution for an injured player or unin- jured player, the referee shall signal the watch to start as soon as he considers the substitution completed." - "I got both captain's signals that they were ready to resume nlav." Referee Kain said.. "The ATC then went into a huddle and before the ball was snapped time was up. The play had been com pleted without the ball being put in play. That was all there was to it" Players Play Clean Fans tn these parts have seldom seen more beautiful line play than the Rockets and Amphibs presented. Watching it through field glasses, not once did we see a player in the first half hit another in the face with his hands, r- elbows.- The blocking . was magnificent and was executed chiefly with shoulder blocks. ' " It was refreshing to see that type of play after some of the college contests' that have been played on Dudley Field in the past 15 years. ' - ' "" ' : Emerson Praises Team Emerson -was hieh In oraise of the Rockets for their hustle and pep, their wonderful spirit, and their will to come back. - He singled out Winston Tucker, formerly of Hardin-Stmmons, for his rocking and socking of the Amphib tackles.. Edwin Ehlers, Joe Duckworth, Bob Davis, Charley Block who suffered a cut eye, Joe Manzo, Rufe N abort, Charley Dean, Johnny Goodyear and Bill McArthur were among others who were lauded by Emtr-son. - "We're coming along," Dick grinned. "Maybe we'll fool several of them before we get through this 11-game schedule. Let's hope he is right. Ehlers Gets Pat "I don't remember ever seeing as fine a plunging fullback in any Southern college as this Ehlers," remarked Bill Godwin, the former Georgia star, last night in commenting on the game. "We were told that the ATC didn't have much in the way of offense, especially , a plunging fullback. Why I'd rather have this Ehlers than Bob Kennedy, The 4 the Third Air Force's great full back. Ehlers is awfully hard to stop." - Tjge rs Browns Divide With Yankees, Stay in Third A's Wreck Smith's Bid To Notch 100th Win, , Beating Tribe, 6 to 2 WASHINGTON, Sept. 16 UPt-- The Detroit Tigers took two tremendous strides toward the American League flag today by soundly whipping their nearest rivals, the Washington Senators, 7-4 and 7-3, in the opening double header of their vital five-game series at Griffith Stadium. , The double defeat knocked the Senators two and a half games behind the pace-setting Bengals and crushed the spirits of 22.949 fans who sat through a long, rainy afternoon in hopes or watching the Nats surge Into the leadershlp...UP to today, the Senators had won 11 of theUu.laat.14 .games.

Yanks, Browns Split NEW TORK, Sept. 15 (JP The St. Louis .Browns clung to their third place berth by dividing a dou ble header with the New York Yankees before 13,033 paying customers today, winning the second game 8-3 after the Tanks had copped the opener 7-4. Lefty A Hollingsworth was the star of the second game, pitching an eight-hitter for his 11th victory compared with nine lost, and batting in three runs for the Browns with his first homer of the season. The blow came off Allen Gettel in the fourth, to send the latter to showers. . It was Gettel's eighth loss against nine won. Milt Byrnes also homered for the Brownies and the one- armed Pete Gray, besides playing a flawless game in the field hand ling five chances, got three singles and drove in the last tally in the ninth. room. sDoke lor me resi oi boys, with that one sentence: "That about does it" Portly, grayish Manager Steve O'Neil was a little more conservative, but he was all smiles.

When it was resumed, "Stubby" Overmire took over for Newhouser, who had been out of commission for about a week with a lame back.

DOWLING ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 15 IP Fritz Cfisler's 1945 University of Michigan football team took just eight plays today to demonstrate mastery which gave them a 27-to-2 triumph over Great Lakes Naval Training Station in the nation's first major gridiron contest In three minutes and 20 seconds of play, the Wolverines unleashed a crafty mixture oi spinners ana laterals ana a ir-year-oia nauoacx that had the Sailors dizzy scoring a touchdown on the eighth play from scrimmage. 26,600 See Game A crowd of 26,600 spectators saw Michigan score two touchdowns in both the first and fourth quarters under a warm autumn sun. Walter Teninga, the ireshman wizard from .Chicago's Morton Grove High School, threw a pass to End Ed McNeill for the first Michi gan score, plunged three yards in the fourth quarter for the third touchdown and contributed mightily to the two other tallies. Michigan outrushed the Sailors 238 yards to 166 and gained 19 first dowps to 10 for Great Lakes, but it was the old Crisler trickery which accounted for the difference. The Sailors still were trying to fig ure the puzzling Michigan spinner- lateral offensive when the Wolver ines scored their - second touchdown after another minute of play. Sailors Challenge Once Great Lakes challenged only once, shortly after Michigan's first score but they were stopped in four plays from the one-foot line in a savage Wolverine stand. The Sailors picked up two points anyway when Capt, Joe Ponsetto, Jr., Michigan quarterback, recov ered Fullback Dan Dworsky's fumble behind the goal line for a safety. Michigan took tne opening kick- off on its 13-yard stripe, and on the first play Teninga passed to Mc Neil for 20 yards. Two plays later, Teninga took a lateral from Pon setto and raced to mldfield. An other Ponsetto-to-Teninga lateral sent the Chicago youngster 42 yards to the Great Lakes eight, where he passed to McNeill for the first tally. First play after the Michigan kickoff, George - Terlep, former Notre Dame reserve back now playing for the Sailors, lateraled to Marion Motley, giant Negro full back from Nevada University, Who Club New Orleans Chattanooga Mobile Atlanta Won Lost 1 3 3 3 Pet. .750 .900 .500 J 50 Yesterday's Results New Orleans t: Atlanta, t.
