Sportswriters are predicting high-scoring contest with teams passing freely. The both two squads worked on pass plays again yesterday. Brown's Ed Finn continued to thread the needle with his passes. A teaSnmate, Phil Collella of St. Bonaventure, was hitting his receivers often enough to show he'll - be a threat when Hnn goes out of - the game. ' ' Bullet Bobby Thomason of V.M.I. shapes up as the South's top passer. He threw • 14 strikes during the 1948 season, each going for a touchdown and . his performance this week has been up to par. McCary Will Pass Joe McCary ol Virginia will do most of the passing when Thomason • The South will build its running game around .such men as Shorty McWilllams. and Harper Davis of ^•Mississippi, power-driving Harry Bonk of Maryland and Russ.lnman or Auburn. Jack Hutchinson of VMI and Huey Keeney of Rice are no slouches at ball-lugging themselves, and they'll be on hand for any emergency. Big Veto Klssell of Holy Cross is e.xpectcd to do a lot of the Yankee line plunging. Wtilly Dreyer of Wisconsin, George Guerre of Michigan State and Phil Collella appear to . be the Yanks' fanciest open-field runners. $.teak and Beer Mcrni For Northerners Jj They Win MIAMI, ,na.—(/P>—Between 35,003 "and 40,000 football fans, are expected to attend the Shrine's North- South All-star charity game tomor- row'night in the Orange Bowl.' •Both teams planned light drills lor today. • Herman Hickman of -Yale, coach of the North.'s'25-man squad,'warned his team: In Great Shape "I want you boys to look sharp out there Christmas night, If we win well dine on steaks and beer. If we lose we'll eat bread and water." • - '• , • "We're ready, and in .great shape," said Andy Gustafson, University ol Miami, coach of the .South'.team. Yesterday both teams ran through plays and worked on pass offense and defense.. Both Hickman and Gastafson have.' promised a .wide- open, free scoring game with plenty of passing. Gustafson will utilize George Blanda of Kentucky for most of .the passing assignments while Hickman li relying on Notre Dame's great Tern-' Brcnnan. 'jJodnarik Elected Csvpwin Charlie Bednarik has been elected captain of 'the North team and Barney Poole, Mississippi's star end, •Kill captain the southern squad. Gustafson said he ' planned to utilize two complete teams, running them into th« game every ten minutes. "This is the kind of game when you .want to play every man you've . got. I suppose Blanda will see more .action, than most of them, because that quarterback is so important with a "T" formation, but we'll run them all to'- show the fans their «uiff—and believe me the entire •quad has plenty to- show." Davis High Tops Alumni, 41 to 40 DAVIS, W. Va.—Davis High School won its third basketball game of the season here last night when It. edged the-Alumni quint by the score of 41-40. Ed Komiski's foul goal with 4j seconds to go- in the game sewed up the contest. The score was deadlocked three times, 23-23, 39-39 and 40-40.

Keegan that he plans-, to visit Frederick and Chambcrsburg this month in an effort to get those two cities In the proposed circuit since they failed ;o gain berths'in the 'Eastern Shore League. Ryan saiiK that Arthur Ehlcrs, farm director of the Philadelphia Athletics, advised him that the A's would operate the Fred- crick team IT the' league, is organized. • v The veteran .minor league mogul also declared that .Winchester will nstall lights and build stands. Harrisonburg, Va., he adds, is ready to ;o, "And if we can get either Mar- Jnsburg or Woodstock, we can have a six-team league." Keegan represented Cumberland it several organizational- meetings n Winchester and informed Ryan during the lost confab that the crcc- ;!on of a stadium here in time for the' 1949 season was "a possibility." So official action, however, has been taken toward the selection of the stadium site or the actual building of the park. Ryan, who sat in on the minor league meetings at Minneapolis several weeks ago, told Keefran -that if the Cumberland park'is built and the league is not organized in time for the 1949 season, he will rent the stadium and put Independent ball here for & year. "It mijht be that we can enter Cumberland in the Middle Atlantic League," he slates. '. Ryan and'his son, Joe, are presently, operating-the Lakeland (Ha.) club in the Class B Florida-International League and '.the elder Ryan would take over ..In a similar capacity If Cumberland gets back into the organized.fold.

"But any day now I expect to be transferred to Troop Information and Education," writes the local boxer. Known to Uncle Sam as Pvt. John H. Klosterman, Jack writes, "This letter comes from a very unhappy GI Joe. How I would like to be back In Cumberland — 'coming out fighting'—at the-State Armory!" Brother of .Jim Klosterman, fiR-htcr and matchmaker for the Diamond A. C., Jack says he has put his name in for the boxing 'team in. his detachment, but so far- nothing has been done about it. "I'm hoping for the best." "Since it'has been almost two months since my last visit to Cumberland, my knowledge about the boxing situation there is practically nil" Jack-continues: "I'm-'taking the- optimistic point'of view and believe that Brother 'Jim 1 is winning all of his scraps." • "Pete" Lear, basketball and softball star of the local BPO Elks, has enrolled at Stetson (Fla.) University for the second semester, beginning next month. "Fete" had his colleg-c education Interrupted at West Vlrci- nia 'University by the war, the local athlete joining the Army Air Forces where he • piloted a B-17 on more than 35 combat missions in the ETO.

Bradley won 28 of 31 games a year ago, its other losses being to South Dakota and DePaul, and with All-American Center Paul Unruh showing the way already is off to an impressive start this season. Lett Scorers Last Xear Unruh, who led the Braves' scoring with 455 points a year ago, was the best center to perform at the Field House in 1948 and Patton, among others, will be surprised if Oils polished junior doesn't give an even greater exhibition on his home boards. Backing up the lanky playmaker and scorer are numerous holdovers including Dave Humerickhouse. Guy Rlcci, George Chianakas, Del Glover, Dari Unruh. and Bob Garber.
