' ' • MAPPING ffA ON THE // JSuterKt Tom Whelan, whose officiating in the All-America Football Conference playoff game at Baltimore last Sunday created such a furore, was head linesman 'in tile intra-squad game the Baltimore Colts played at Port Hill Stadium in August, 1947. Sideline judfe in the jrame between tlie Colts and Buffalo Bills, Whelari ruled incomplete a, fourth-quarter pass which- • Chet Mutryn of th«..Bills carried for a. few steps, but fumbled •when tackled and Baltimore recovered. The ball went back to the Bills and Buffalo then, marched 60 yards to score the winnlnif. touchdown in the 28-17 contest. A star football player at -.Catholic University, Whelan' yesterday informed Cumberland's Johnny Long in a telephone conversation from Washington that '.'I'm sure I called the play right and my decision would be the same if I had to mnkc it every day." 'Whelan told Long- there was no control or possession on the part of Wutryn and therefore the pass was .ncomplete. The play, he added, illmaxed an afternoon of "close decisions," most of which lie had to call. Several passes, "\Vhelan told Long, happened to be completed about a fool or two Inside the line' and when the receivers were hit immediately, It could have easily appeared from in anrle in- the stands that the ball was caught out of bounds. One thing, he • said, led to another with the fourth period decision touching' off the explosion. He denied, however, that he received a black eye ,Jn. the mob scuffle which followed the game, and added that his shirt was not torn. R. C. Embry, president of the Colts, first announced that he would lodge an official protest with Conference Commissioner Jonas Ingram, but changed liis tune yesterday, writing Ingram as follows: "In order to be fair to Mr; Whelan and to the fans in Baltimore, ive do not think it wise to have him officiate' in any capacity in'any future games of the Baltimore Colts, whether at home or in the home city of any of our opponents. . ' 'Therefore. It Is requested he not be appointed to work any of our game* in the season to come." Embry said 'it wasn't the first time Wlielan figured in decisions disliked by the Colts, He mentioned a Novemb'er 21. game with the Los Angeles Dons in which Whelan placed the ball down on two completed Baltimore passes a couple yards shy of the point the Colts thought it should be. The Colts lost that game, too, in the last quarter.

The Interstate Baseball League president said Whelan was recujfnlzcd as one Of the most competent football officials In'the Washington area when he (Long;) was coaching- at Bullls Prep a few years ato. Whelnn, following Long at Catholic U. by several seasons, is regarded as the-best halfback ever to cavort on the gridiron for the Cardinals. Whelan played against LaSalle when the Explorers- were swamped, 42-0, by the C. U. Frosh in 1929. The -'29 LaSalle team, by the way, was coached by Long and had a record of five victories, three defeats and a tie. . ; 0 If Bill Hahn ever decides to quit football coaching, he probnbly would have no trouble getting a job as a Hollywood "cutting room" experr, The Fort Hill Hich tutor (lid an excellent job of piecin? io- Kethcr the film of the 6-6 Thanksgiving Day fame be- Possible Armistice Greets AAC Owners At Meeting CLEVELAND—(#)—Reports of a possible armistice in the dollar war with the senior National Football Leagi^?. greeted owners of the three-year-old All-America Conference as they gathered today for their annual meeting and title twecri his team und the Allc- Campers. . The technicolor movies, \shown at the Port Hill and Allegany grid banquets, made a big hit with dinner guests, the pictures bringing out the bright school colors of the rival . elevens and the crowd .In jjcneral. In addition, the film shows most of the action highlights of the memorable deadlock, with good shots of both scoring plays. . .

Of course, much of the credit must jro t« the photographers themselves whose work in slioot- ing the fame was far above average. Principals in this phase of the project were Wade Kipp, shop teacher at Fort Hill Tilgh, and Bob Dans, local photographer. . Kipp shot the major portion of the- scenes, with Davis taking over when the former was forced to change rolls. playoff game'; The' younger circuit has • been for such a truce from the . flm day of its being. Most owners In the National have opposed it in ~ the belief that the established circuit could outlast the newcomer. A writer for a New York news' paper, Joe King, predicted yester- '.. day that the All-America Confer• ence would fold up,- and tliat the ' Champion Cleveland Browns and _ the San Francisco 49ers would enter •- the national loop. Has Better Outlook • However, Admiral Jonas .Ingram. --• Commissioner of the All-America. • said the owners will go Into today's 1 session with a better outlook than • they had at a comparable time'a year ago. Ingram said he also anticipated • peace with the National League • rithin 30 days. "I'm confident," he said, "seven of the National League owners are in favor of some kind of working agreement now. I'm confident some • kind of settlement will be made '• within the next month. " "It really shouldn't'be very diffi- . cult to put a plan into operation. • "The main thing is to work out the makeup of the leagues, arrange a schedule that will have no conflicts and plan a common draft.' "I'm in favor of two eight-team leagues, with one team from Chicago Marshall Holding Out Ingram didn't say who. was holding out but one man apparently is George Preston'Marshall, owner of the Washington Redskins. Marshal! reiterated his a truce yesterday after Alexis Thompson, owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, came "up once again with the proposal that the two ..leagues get together. Wliether there's a truce or not it Is known that the conference magnates will discuss other economies in their meetings. One suggestion, to be considered would cut the player roster from the present either 30 or 28. Another would decrease the number of games to be played. Each club now plays 14 games, A 17-game program-ha's been' suggested which would include midweek dates. The moguls also will study the television problem during their four clay stay. No meetings are slated for Sunday when the Browns, unbeaten Western Division Champions, play Buffalo, Eastern titleholders, for "the league title.. Leahy Looking For 'Thriller' In Rose Bowl Says New Year's Day Classic Will Feature f. 'Battle Of Systems' Jg By FRANK LEAHY Notre Dame Coach HONOLULU—While enjoying the pleasant .weather of Hawaii, it is difficult to realize that in two weeks major teams throughout the nation will be facing one another in bow! games. It is nice to be looking. for ward to these contests as a spectator rather than as a participant. 5j The Tournament jis of Roses game is *| one of the great landmarks in sport. Conceived in 1902. as the •first of the great intersectional post-season classics, this contest has until more recent years attempted to bring the outstanding Frank Leahy, ^tem team to oppose the ultimate winner, of the Pacific Coast Conference, Tills year marks the third year of the new famous Rose Bowl pact between of . the Pacific Coast Conference and the Western Conference,, popularly termed the Big Nine. This has resulted in the winners of the respective conferences being invited to participate. In the event of a tie, such as occurred this year between California and Oregon, the member institutions vote to determine 'their representative. Big Nine legislation prohibits the appearance ot the same team within a. three year period, thus explaining the presence of second-place Northwestern, rather than. National Champion Michigan, Old Home Week It will be old home week as Coach Lynn "Pappy" Waldorf of the California Bears 'is opposed by one of his former pupils, Bob Voights, the Northwestern mentor. However, it will not be a dual of similar systems. Serving an apprenticeship under the very successful professional coach, Paul Brown, .Coach Voights became a disciple of the "T", while the Waldorf system, both at Northwestern, and now at California, depends- upon the intricacy of the single wing. This Indicates that given adequate material, either system possesses the necessary requisites for producing a top team. • An excellent opportunity will be presen-ted to the spectators to compare the relative merits of two of the nation's outstanding fullbacks. California's Jackie Jensen was selected as the No. 1 fullback on Colliers' - All-American team, while pile-driving Art' Murakowski represented the Wildcats on the All- Players AH-American. Both Are Great Undoubtedly both these lads are great, and it will be interesting to evaluate their respective qualifications or. New Year's Day. When California goes into a -five-man line, two other national nominees for honors will face each other as Rod Franz opposes- Northwestern's captain and center,' Alex Sartdsian. Having had the privilege of preparing teams to meet both of these outstanding coaches, we can assure the football fans of the nation a typical thriller, common to the-Rose Bowl. Coach Voights has devised an impenetrable pass defense that has established Big Nine records in this department of play. Combining this with the all-around aggressiveness of the Wildcats line, we have a source of worry for Coach Waldorf. However, we know, as well as dses Bob Voights,- that Lynn is doing much more thai-, merely worrying about Northwestern's defense. Any team that can go through undefeated, 'against opponents of the calibre of those faced by California has plenty in ' its. bag of tricks. Thus,the master-pupil relationship should 'result in a natural.
