The Cleveland Browo.s were the walk-away western 'winners while the New York Yankees far outdistanced the eastern half of the conference. The 'Browns and Yankees will meet in a championship playoff next Sunday in Cleveland. The Dons-Rockets tilt was a seesaw battle which saw the Rockets take an early lead, surrender it to the Dons, and then come back in the final minutes to earn a tie and almost gain the victory. A touchdown hauled o^ei- bjr John Kimbr.ough-and a field goal by Joe Aguirre sent the .Dons in front, 10 to 0. A pass from Bob Hoernsch- meyer to Prank-Quillen save the Rockets a second-quarter touchdown.

' The lineup was the one which had >een expected from non-playing Cap- ain Walter .Pate, and the Aussies also chose .' the - predicted '. squad — ohn Bromwich, Adrian . Quist, Dinhy Pails 'and Colin Long. The singles matches start Decem- >er 26, and it was believed that Cramer and Parker would be the United States players against Bromwich and Pails. Kramer is United States champion, and Parker is na- tio'nal champ in 1944-1945. Still in some doubt was the United States doubles combination, since -Pate can use any two of his four players. Kramer and Schroeder was favored to get the call, but Parker and Mulloy have teamed to beat them in-several practice matches.

The_death of this fabric conservation order laid to rest the restrictions that kept the silhouette' narrow, skirts short and many beloved frills out of the picture for four years. Xow that the ban is lifted, you can expect things to happen in fashions. But how §oon and how marked the changes will^be depend upori~~two factors. Osiris the return of plentiful fabrics, which are still scarce in many textile brandies. Another factor is the need to make style changes slowly, because fashion opinion turns about-face with slowly pivoting half steeps, not with a whirling-dervish spin.' Notwithstanding these brakes that make designers, go cautiously, most are jubilant over their escape from style. One of the first to take out scissors and fabrics to see how it feels to go lavish again is Gertrude Rothschild, designer for one of the largest "mities" dress houses in the East. Losing no time after L-58 was revoked, she-rt-hipped up three fashion futures, all sporting- pleats, lengthened skirts, deeper heniF. On suits, jackets were made two inches longer. One fulsome knee^pleated dress combining surrealistic print and plain navy crepe has a. hooded stole attached, which Miss Rothschild says would have thrown out this fashion prior to the lifting of restrictions. Whirling with pleats and devouring more material than has been used in years is her long-jacketed dress of white coffee beige, topped with black eyelet-embroidered wool. The torso-cleaving jacket, a parade j ground for black jet buttons, is a I full two inches longer than Order i L-58 allowed. So is the pleated skirt | which lets fulness so at a safe distance below suavely fitted hips. Quintets Suffer Upset Defeats on Cage Courts NEW YORK, Dec, 1.6. (^—Sports fans, still in a- whirl over the -amazing number of form reversals in-the football season just concluded, already- have discovered that the jpig- skin performers do not hold a monopoly on upsets. With the National college basketball campaign only two weeks old, such pre-season favorites for championship honors as Nofre Dame, Oklahoma A. & M., DePaul, Kansas, Temple, Michigan and St. John's of Brooklyn already have tasted < defeat. -. On the other hand, such newcomers to the top ranks as Seton halh St. Joseph's of Philadelphia, City College of Kew York, Texas, Louisiana State, Santa Clara and Bradley Tech have shown, indications that they will have to be reckoned with this year. The early dose of upset-itis has this far failed to touch such eminent quintets as Kentucky, unotfi- cially rated as the number one team of the nation; Illinois, the Wildcat's closest rival; Kew York University, "West Virginia, North Carolina, Jlin- nesora, Iowa, Syracuse, Ohio State, Dartmouth and others. Each has looked impressive in winning all its games. — Probably , the biggest eyebrow lifter was Notre Dame's defeat by Wisconsin, 64-49 in overtime, Saturday night. Other major upsets included, St. John's defeat by Nevada, which in turn was upset by Georgetown; Kansas' setback by Southern Methodist for the Kansas City tournament title,' and Kansas State's victories over both Oklahoma and Arkansas. Sexton Hall, a prewar basketball power, has won its first five games while four times winners include Duke and North Carolina in the southeast, St. Joseph and Brooklyn College in -the east, Wyoming 1 in the west, and Oregon, Oregon State and Santa Clara in the far west. Santa Clara established itself as a Pacific coast power by beating U. C. L. A. Saturday night alter- whipping Southern California 'Friday night.

Ifi (UK—Within Shanghai—virtually unknown to its' forcigii Presidents—is a . city of the i dead. Between now and the end of the year, Shanghai's health authorities have decreed that these dead, numbering 100,000, must be bur-led. The presence in Shanghai of 100.000 unburied dead reflects a tradi-, tion and a business uniquity Chinese. [ It is the coffin repository, which has, grown out of the deep-rooted Chinese . i belief that one should be buried at I his native place. And to the Chinese ] that means, not the place of one's •birth, but the ancestral home, i There is an oM s.uinsr that "a > tree may be 10,000 .feet tall, but it's | 'leaves still fall to the earth." and , thus a man may li\e thmi'-antls of miles away* but he still should be buried'near his ancestors. 5157 WIVES PARTY 'PLANNED Wives of Y's Hen's Club members i will be entertained by a Christmas] dinner and party at 7 p. m.
