Sellout Crowd to See Penn -Virginia Contest Classified Sports Quakers' .Co-Captains Fear Letdown Against High-Scoring Cavaliers By ART MORROW University of Pennsylvania athletic authorities announced yesterday that all 78.205 seats have been sold for tomorrow's clash v.ith the University of Virginia at Franklin Field, and Co-Captains Bill Luongo and Jerry McCarthy served notice on their Quaker xeammates inai mis is no iime to jei aown. The game with the high-scoring Cavaliers, who racked up at least five touchdowns in all six of their victories, has the Penn Virginia Attack Has Three Backs Passing From T By FRANK O'GARA It's seldom that an observer sees mch a sweet sequence of plays as the University of Virginia threw against the University of Richmond last Saturday and presumably will employ against the University of Pennsylvania tomorrow at Franklin Field. Rarely, too, does one see a T-powered team using an attack that has the halfbacks pass more than the quarterback. This is shown in the season's un-eff.cial passing statistics. Left halves threw 42, completed 16 for 295 yards Bruce Bailey had six caught for 92; Dick Michels hit on six for 113). Right halves tossed 12, hit on seven for 135 Ray Brown's four-for-five gained 101). Quarterbacks tossed 20, connected on 13 for 220 (Joe Mc-Cary, 11 of 18 for 206; Gil Sullivan, two of two for 14). Following is a description of Vir ginia's "bread-and-butter" series as worked in the 34-0 conquest of Richmond, when the latter used a conventional six - man line. This is the basic play of the series that sets up the ramifications, and is such an effective weapon in itself that it went for two scores against Richmond, with Bailey carrying. McCary. the quarterback, takes the ball, moves over toward the hole and pjfs a quick handoff to Bailey, the left half. Bailey slants inside the defensive right end. who is not blocked at ail. The most important block to insure a long gain is that of the left tackle on the right backer-tip. The play puts terrific pressure on the defensive right end. If he guesses the play, he can stop it cold, but if he is immobilized for a split second, the ball-carrier shoots by him. Even If he does grab the runner, Virginia has the further weapon of a lateral cut to the trailing right half or fullback. Aeainst Richmond. Bailey lateralled out to Grover Jones, the fullback, for the first score. If the end commits himself to tackling the left half and the play Is an adaptation of the original, his team immediately is in a hole. DS Another version of the attack calls for the quarterback to fake passing to the left half, in anticipation of the defensive right end going for the left half. Then the quarterback circle around and starts to sweep the id. with the right half and fullback as blockers. Depending upon the outlook, he either runs or passes. Most frequently he passes, either to left end Carlton Elliott, who has gone down deep, or right end, Ed Bessell, who comes across shallow. But In all cases, he executes the preliminary of starting to run In order to draw In the secondary. Perhaps the most deadly ramification is this one. As usual, the ouarterbacr fakes to the left half, then pitches out to the right half, who then has the option of running cr passing. The same play also works with a hand-to-hand pass instead of the lateral pltchout. Although the season's passing statistics mould indicate that the maneuvers have gone most often to the right, with Bailey or Michels doing the heaving, the Cavaliers worked it on the majority of times to the left against Richmond, with Brown passing. In that game. Brown hit for two scores a 46-yard pass to Bessell and a 27-yarder to Elliott. Segura Beats Parker RIO DE JANEIRO. Nov. 6 (AP).

Because of the 17-14 upset of 1946, the Pennsyl-vanians anticipated last week's setto with Princeton to the cli max point, and, having beaten the Tigers. 26-7, they then felt npe for some relaxation. McCarthy and Luongo plan a meeting with their colleagues today to warn against any such attitude. With Army and Cornell following Virginia on the schedule, no one Is discussing the matter, but there are visions nevertheless of a perfect season. Not since 1904 has Penn gone through unbeaten and untied "And." says Luongo. "if we lose to Virginia, our whole season will be ruined." Luongo, an Air Force sergeant for 35 months and 29 days, is generally regarded as the most improved player on the Penn squad. Last season he spelled Fullback Eddie Allen and while he proved himself, started only one game. VERITABLE POWERHOUSE This season he has been little short of sensational, piling up 254 yards in 38 carries, an average of about six and three-quarters per crack, and seven touchdowns put him on a par with the mercurial Skippy Minisi in the scoring department. Now, Bill, who understudied Fran-kie Sinkwich. won quite a reputation with the Second Air Force team in 1944-45, playing with such stalwarts as Bulldog Turner, Glenn Dobbs, Fred Davis. Dick Barwegan, Hunk Adams and Ray Evans. Those who had seen him perform in the Army were surprised last year that he did not rank as a starter. But there has been no restraining him this fall. "I'm about eight pounds lighter than I was last year, when I went 210," Bill explains his improvement, "and I feel proportionately faster." REUNION WITH PAPIT Bill started preparing himself early in the summer. Along with McCarthy, he got a laboring job at the Gulf oil refinery, working alongside a young husky named Johnny Papit, the former Northeast High sensation whom he'll be meeting again tomorrow. Papit now is Virginia's second-string fullback. Luongo kept busy all summer, and when he left the oil job. he paid daily visits to Chestnut Hill Academy, not far from his home in Ger-mantown, and engaged in long runs. Bill is the fourth of his family to attend the University. A younger brother, Bob, performs for the Jay-vees. Two older brothers boxed for the Red and Blue: Nick, graduated in 1933, as a 155-pounder, and Al, in the Class of '41, as an intramural middleweight champion who also played 150-pound football. Bill himself boxed a little in the Army, winning all three bouts In which he engaged, but football remains his first love. MAY PLAY PRO BALL He played in 1938-39-40 under Bill Augustine' at Germantown, freshman ball at Penn In '41 and on the jayvee club in '42. Now, all of this had been single-wing football, j but at Colorado Springs, under i Major Fred Walker, a former end coach at Princeton, he had a touch of T, Bill still prefers the single-wing variety of its greater power and keener bodily contact, but if he remains in football and he plans to do so it seems likely that he'll have to swing to the T. Through the influence of Turner and Davis, he has had several letters from George Halas. the owner-coach of the Chicago Bears, and if he can't tie up with the Eagles here, he figures he'll go with the Monsters of the Midway. Funeral Rites Held For O. E. Holdman PENDLETON, Ore., Nov. 6 (AP). Oro Ellsworth Holdman, 61, onetime Dartmouth College pole vault star and 1909 National AAU junior vault champion, was buried here today.

A 74-73 finish today was good enough to clinch for Jimmy Turnesa, Elmsford, N. Y., top money of $1500 in the 45th North and South Open golf tournament with a 72-hole total of 284, four under par. Although far off his sparkling 66 pace of yesterday when he equaled the event record, the 34-year-old second youngest of seven golfing brothers, had enough to win easily. George Schoux, the San Franciscan who is registered from Mama-roneck, N. Y., finished second, right where he began the final 36 holes. He, too. had his troubles today, but a 75-74 added to a first-half 141 gave him 290 and $1000 second money. He escaped by a stroke the six-man wrangle over third place.

Coach Ray Morrison, known for his witty after-dinner speeches, is still insisting (with little support in any quarter) that his charges have a chance against the supercharged Lions. The undefeated and untied Nit-tany Lions, who are top team in the nation in point production t263), in total offense, in rushing offense and in rushing defense, are scheduled to practice at Temple Stadium at 4 o'clock. FINAL TUNE-UP This is the same time the Owls are listed to go through their final tune-up, and it is likely that Morrison will delay practice long enough to permit the invaders to get their work done, then go into their drill unhindered. Following the workout the Temple squad will board buses and go to Philmont Country Club for an overnight stay. This is the first time this season that the Owls have followed such a procedure before any home game. As the Owls go through their paces one is impressed with their spirit, and there isn't a player who ha that "hang-dog" look, which might be expected after reading about Mve power of Penn State. TEMPLARS READY It certainly looks as though the Templars will be ready for tomorrow's game, being in even better spirits than on the eve of the Muhlenberg game following the unexpected loss to Syracuse the week before.

Chandler's office decided today to recommend that the next joint major-league meeting rewrite Dec. 11 the high-school player rule which was involved in the recent dispute between Candler and Leslie O'Connor of the Chicngo White Sox. The council also voted to recommend that no team be allowed to start training before March 1. The council will suggest that the present rule be broadened to forbid signing of any student of any high school before his class graduates. As adopted in February, 1946. the rule applied only to students of schools in the National Federation of State High School Athletic Associations. The council also decided to recom- ment that the American Legion rule. barring clubs from signing players still eligible for Legion Junior base ball, be formally incorporated in the major rules and carry an automatic $500 fine for violations. A request from the College Base ball Association that pro clubs re frain from signing collegians until their class had graduated will be submitted to the joint meeting with out recommendation.

Harold cniackle) Fclnman's touchdown passes sparkled in Central's victory. The alert quarterback tossed both to Ralph juro&ious, one or zs yarns into the end zone and another for 42 yards, with Broslous racing the final 10. MILLER R9GISTERS Bob Miller started Central off when in two plays he smashed the last eight yards of a 32-yard march. In this advance, that started when Feinman recovered a fumble by Les Graves on the opening kickofi, the Central star aided with a 10-yard pass to Charles Bowser. His 28-yard aerial came in the second quarter to culminate a march of 44 yards. The longer execution was a one-play advance in the third period. Central added Its fourth touch down in the final period on a 22-yard thrust, with Frank Hartman circling left end for the last 17. Gratz came back with a belated drive of 63 yards that reached fruition when Graves raced around left end for 11 yards. FRANKLIN DEADLOCKED Franklin turned a second-period fumbled punt into a touchdown march of 15 yards, with Ernie Rehr tossing a fourth-down pass of 12 yards to Ben Johnston. Tommy Lomax set the stage when he recovered Johnny Urban's bobble. In the third period, Olney drove back for five first downs, including a 30-yard pass play from Tony Santoro to Herb Weinberg. Jerry Taitle-man's plunge from the one-yard line tied the count, and Malcolm Ford kept it that way by blocking Urban's extra-point placement.

By FRED BYROD Philadelphia's Warriors moved by fits and spurts last night, but the last rush carried them to an 88-88 extra period victory over the Indianapolis Kautskys in a game that set a new scoring record for the Arena. Seven points in a row gave the Warriors an 80-78 lead after they had trailed for 47 of the 48 minutes regularly allotted, but with 15 seconds to go, Leo (Crystal) Klier, the former Notre Dame All-American, tied it with a one-handed shot from the side. WARRIORS TAKE LEAD After losing to the New York Knicks in an extra period struggle Tuesday, the Warriors got the Jump on Joe Fulks' foul and Angelo Musi s cut shot. Herman Schaefer cam back with a basket for the Kautskys, but Fulks was fouled by George Glamack as he spun in a field goal from pivot, and Joe cashed the foul too. It looked safe for the home team then, but it wasn't. Ola mack, fouled by Fulks, made two. And right after Francis Chink) Crossin got loose for a two-pointer for the Warriors, Schaefer matched it for the Kautskys. Hillhouse kept th 1500 fans squirming when he missed two fouls, but the Warriors prevented the Kautskys from getting another shot. FULKS SCORES 29 Biggest contributor to the new floor record the Chicago Sua and Warriors set the old one of 162 last year was Fulks with eight field goals and 13 foul conversions in 16 opportunities for 29 points, his biggest bag this season. But Must, bringing the Warriors to life in the second half with six of his eight field goals; Crossin and Ralph Kaplowitz, co-workers in the winning rally, and Hillhouse, with 13 tallies in his second game of the season, all were a big help. Klier and Schaefer were good for 15 points apiece for last year's National Pro Tournament champions, who outseored the victors from th floor, 33-31. Klier wasn't on hand at the finish, however, having fouled out along with Arnold (Stilts) Risen and Les Pugh. Jack Toomey, six-foot-seven center man bought from the Chicago Stags the day before, looked good in a brief appearance, despite the fact that he had the ill luck to giv the Kautskys two points by batting a ball while it rested on the basket's rim.
