The score , was tied four .,-times and-changed hands seven in a harrt- mer-and-to'ngs first half, with the turning point coming in a red-hot third' quarter which found Coach "Red" Kioto's Dukes rolling up 23 points while holding the fast- breaking-West Virginia aggregation to six markers. t ' Dukes Do No Wronp The Dukes, it seemed, could do no ; wrong in this stanza and nothing the Blues did clicked. Responsible for lighting the fuse was Paul "Obie" Oberhaus, the lanky Cumberland center, who fired in five straight points as the second half got-under, way. Inspired by this piece of work, the whole Duke team caught fire and continued to burn up the boards the rest of the session. They controlled the rebounds, shot like champions and weaved in and out of the Wheeling defense almost at will. Much to the delight of the largest audience of the .season, the Dukes padded their lead to 16 points(59-43) when the third canto closed. The margin seemed mighty big at the' time, but it wilted -when the ocals cooled off and Wheeling regained its shooting form in the final .'Johnson, r ...-. ?rlzzell, g Clevengcr. c ...

More Financial Aid Is Urged By Conference WASHINGTON—(XP)—The Southern Conference has reiterated its stand in favor of more financial aid to athletes. At its meeting here last weekend, the conference adopted a resolution asking the National Collegiate Athletic Association to 'permit athletic- scholarships to include room, board, laundry and incidental fees, The conference's action was in line with the stand it took last February in Birmingham when it met. with representatives of the southeastern and southwestern conferences to discuss the code. A recommendation by the Conference Coaches Association for appointment of a commissioner with full power to police conference sports was referred to. a committee.

Unlike last season when the gym • was filled to capacity for the Younjrstown-Dukes game, the locals last, night provided the majority of scoi-intf- thrills and thereby assured themselves of /rood crowds for future league engagements. The Dukes gave one of the worst performances in being drut bed by Youngstown last season just as ic was beginning to look, like the local aggregation would cause no end of trouble for the league leaders.

Sweet Melody, first claimed for $1,500, was taken back by Playoff Crowd Mobs Official At Baltimore CoJl President Flays Judge For Decision In Contest Won By Bills BALTIMORE — (IP)— The Buffalo Bills are the eastern champs of the All-America Football Conference today and Baltimore is mad. The Bills won a rough, closely- fought game yesterday from the Baltimore Colts, -28-17, to earn the right to meet the Cleveland Browns for the AAC 'championship next Sunday. Feelings ran so high during the see-saw contest that police had to escort the officials to the locker rooms when'hundreds of the 27,327 partisan fans swarmed onto the field after the final gun. Sideline Judge Tommy Whclan of Catholic U. needed the most protection. His decision on a disputed . fourth-period pass play was soundly i booed and was later criticized by Colt President Robert C, Ernbry. who termed it "the turning point of the game." . ' On the play, Chet Mutryn, Bill's halfback, took a short pass from Quarterback George Ratterman and then dropped the ball. Colt Tackle Johnny Mellus recovered, but Whelan called it an incompleted pass. The Colts were leading then, 17-14, with five minutes of playir.g time remaining. Scored Six Flays Later Six plays later the Bills scored the winning touchdown and added another one shortly after on an intercepted pass. The Baltimore Sun said It plans to publish pictures of the disputed play in tomorrow's editions. The ! pictures will be from movies of the 'game filmed by the Colts. Police said Whclar.'s eye was swollen after the mob closed in on him and his shirt ar.d cap were torn.

Completing- the Eastern staff, "Tuss" McLaughr'y brings his strategy to the Eastern stall for the second time, being a member in 1940. Bowl nominations have depleted the original Western coaching staff, as Don Faurot will take his Missouri Tigers into Che 'Gator Bowl, and Matty Bell's SMU Mustangs play I host to the Oregon Webfoots ;n the Dallas Cotton Bowl. To Jeff Cravath, a former East-West hero in his own right, having won the 1927 game through his recovery oi a fumble, will fall the bulk of the preparations of the Western squad. The writer feels himself more than amply qualified to testify as to J-eS's ability, having viewed his handiwork from an advantageous position the earlier part of this month. • ' Given the stars that naturally participate in such an event as this, it is easy to see that an outstanding game is'in the offir.g', as both staffs ai-e loaded with football savvy, and. shooting arid defense in the third p-erlod which sewed up the decision.

The onetime Canisius ace hooped nine two-point goals and six singletons for a 24-polnt. total. None of the Dukes .assigned to guarding Quinlan was able to throttle him completely in the pivot post Oberhaus tried it first, then Jim .Clcvenger and finally Gus Prizzell One of two Wheeling players ejected on personals, Quinlar was given a big ovation when he left the scene of action with a miriute remaining Several minutes earlier Wheeling lost Jim Britt via the personal-fou route.

This means that none of the personnel comprising the co- champions of the Pacific Coast Conference will be on hand. Having won but seven games in the series, the east will be attempting to boost its average, as it travels west, loaded with topflight performers.
