A powerful forward wall with a wealth of end material, and one high-class set of backs, make the West Pointers a big order for any rival. Perhaps the Cadets were ex eeptlonally geared for the game with Princeton, renewal after 30 years of a series wherein no Army ' lit. team had prevailed, we were wrong, incidentally, In thinking Army never played In Princeton, lor the Cadets and Navy fought i j-e tie there when the Service game was peddled about the East In 1905.

Nov. 20 Tne Philadelphia Ramblers save New Haven fang their first glimpse of wide open hockey at the local arena tonight and although the Eagles fought all the way they were outskated and outplayed, losing, to 3. The win was the fifth for the Philadelphlans In six starts this season and the fourth by one-sided margins. They have counted 37 goals to date and are seated atop the East ern Division standings. Their lone reverse was the 3-1 Jolt by Hershey last Thursday night. The locals, strengthened by Bill Beveridge and Armand Mondou, were none-the-less no match for the speed and general class of the vis ltors from the Quaker City. The pace was terrific at the start and both clubs threatened several times, but both goalies were adamant and no scoring developed In the first period New Haven drew two penalties, but superb work by Mondou and I pine choked off every threat. The Ramblers were awarded a penalty shot, but Reelings shot was stopped easily by Beveridge. STEP OUT IN SECOND The Ramblers turned on the pres sure In the second period and finally hit the scoring column early with Barton netting the disc. Later In the period the Ramblers added two more goals with Roubell and Barton banging the disc Into the net. The Ramblers added a fourth goal early in the last stanza, but the Eagles revived the hopes of the home fans on two quick goals scored by Hemmerllng and Mondou. However, the spurt was only shortlived as the visitors racked up three more goals on breakaway plays while the home team could only count once more. Allen. McDonald and Barton featured for the Ramblers, while Mondou. Leplne and Smith were outstanding for the home forces. m..., tr..-n Pn.ltinnl Rnmblprs - .... .-' ' L r " , ' l ....

On that play, as much as the Impetuous advance from kickoff, was Army's power revealed. Without further review, we of fer a few thumbnail sketches of Cadet stars you'll see at the Mu nicipal stadium against Navy: Chorles J. (Huey) Long, first classman (senior) and Ho. 4 bqcfc In Coacfc BUI .Wood's wingback system with . the funny little' shift of one man, was the outstanding iball handler in the 19-7 tic-fory. A southpaw passer, clever kicker and astute hon-' jd!er of plays, he is also a safety who didn't bother to fall on the loose ball, but watched the slippery oval and legged toward Prince-'ton's goal. He set up one touchdown with a 20-yard pass to Sullivan, the other uith a shifty punt return of . like distance. ;Long Is the sort of back who, . lacking a foot or two for first n, coolly calls a touchdown shot off tackle. He will turn quiz- 'ocally to scrutinize the time clock or scoreboard, and bang! Th play shears through your Ward as he stands idly faking.1 Huey of Army has more poise than his namesake of Louisiana had brass, yet he likes tennis best of all! ; Woody Wilson, hard runner who can pass and punt, is the other triple threat and one of the fastest backs. Art Prontczak, D o w a g 1 a c , Hich., throws his 185 pounds through the line, or mows down tacklers as blocker. Unlike Long tad Wilson, he has another year, Captain Jim Schwenk, of Schuylkill Haven, to havin tough time holding his starting fullback position as Coach Wood nlavi surolns ends like Sullivan in the hackfield. One of Army's big tains was by Jack Samuel, on n end around. The Cadet fiankmen are big, ng, fast and furious.

A, The Lower Mayfair warriors piled up a margin of 12 first downs to two and emerged victorious under the system in vogue in the conference which awards the game to the team making the most first downs when a tie results in the regular scoring. Mlo Patrizi's running for Para dlse proved too much for a sluggish Ward backfleld and he crashed over from the one-foot line for the win nlng score at the culmination of a 58-yard drive near the end of the opening period. A 30-yard heave from Lou Costarossa to Henry Hughes set the stage for the score when the Paradise eleven gained nossession on the Ward 28.

P.). -Tuffy Leemans, the loose-hipped running back of the Giants, broke away on a 75-yard touchdown gallop that overwhelmed the Green Bay Packers today. After that run" the New Yorkers went on to win 15 to 3, and solidify their position at the head of the National Pro League"! Eastern division. The Packers had pushed the Giants all over the field in the first half and were leading, 3 to 2, as a result ot Paul Eneebretsen's 21-yard neid goal, when Leemans went to work in the third neriod. The 48,279 fans in the Polo Orounds went absolutely mad when Tuffy went to work. LEEMANS BREAKS LOOSE First he caught Engebretsen's try for a second field goal on the Giant two and dashed up to the 25. On the first play he started through his own right tackle as Nello Falascht, the blocker, erased Wayland Becker with a terrific block. Leemans cut to his left as Jim Poole blocked out Cecil Isbell, swung back and shot into the clear. No one else gave him any trouble. He ran over without another Packer taking a shot at him. Ward Cuff calmly place-kicked conversion and the game was in. The defeat In their final regular-season game cost the Packers a chance to clinch the Western division title. They have won eight games and lost three. The Detroit Lions, who defeated the Chicago Cardinals for their sixth victory in nine starts, have two games to play. The Otanta, who also have two to go, can be beat en out only by the Washington Redskins In the Eastern division. HEIN SPRINTS ALONE Mel Heln, who played 87 minutes ot great centre for the New Yorkers, added the second New York touch down early In the fourth quarter, Arnold Herber, standing on his own 45, drove a pass to the flat, Heln gauged the ball perfectly, took It on Hlnkle's fingers and dashed 80 yards for the touchdown aided by expert blocking by Frank Cope, who knocked the last Packer defender galley-west. That ended the Giant outburst. It was all the more surprising because the Packers had all but knocked their brains out in the first half. Once they had driven to the 25 with their fast-breaking off-tackle stuff and Cecil Isbell's great run nlng on an in and out maneuver eating up the yardage. This march was stopped when Hanken Intercept ed a fourth down pass. Again In the second period they went to the 10, where Hlnkle's try for a field goal was on. They made threatening gestures all through the second period and no Continued on Page 18, Column I Chicago Defeats St. Louis Eleven Dave Tosses to Carter and Hewitt And Eagles Win, 14-7 CHARLESTON, W.

Armand Nlccolal'i placement tied It at 7-7. Dick Riffle, sensational first-year halfback, set up the winning marker in the final quarters when he-crashed through right tackle, wormed his way loose and raced 54 yards to the 11-strlpe where Bill Davidson, former Temple star, nailed him from behind. Then Smukler passed to Car ter for the touchdown. Henry Reese. sub centre, who played a great gam stepped back and placeklcked tne point.

Passes of 14 and 11 yards from Smukler to Carter and Hewitt again threatened Pittsburgh In the second oerlod. but the Pirates held after two pases by Riffle barely missed.

It was sweet revenge after the reverse Baltimore handed the Germans a week ago. It was the fourth win for the Germans against four defeats and one draw. Playing on a soggy field, with pools of water directly In front of the east goal and on the side lines, it was difficult at times for the players to hold their feet and there were many spills. With the addition of Johnny Olt-hause. recently obtained from the Brooklyn Celtics, at right naiiDacs, the recovery of Ray Kelly from his recent injury and placed at Inside left, Charlie Altemose. switched from left halfback to right halfback and Bill Fiedler going from inside left to left halfback, the line-up looked very good. Ray Richard never performed better, all of his kicks being placed nicely, while Ray Kelly, Andy Ferko, George Nemchlk and Bob Gormley. formed a strong forward combination. Baltimore did not show the same kind of form as that displayed on its previous visit to the Quaker City and their only goal was a gift In th opening half when Charlie Ernst, Baltimore centre forward, sent a pas to Merle Law, inside left, and Al Harker, In attempting to stop Law' kick, accidentally pushed the ball Into the net.
