The hall same got underway with Foster of the Blades kickinp off to the Wildcats, which Rave them a first down on their own 26-yard line. On the first running play of the same, from the line of scrimmage. Decker tumbled the ball on a lateral pass which gave the Blades the first j break of tho contest when they recovered on Taft's lo-yard stripe. i'l'hen Heady'of the Blades carried the ball down to the one. and on the next play he went over with nary a man touching him. Heady's touchdown came in two minutes and five seconds after the opening kick-off which gave the Blades an early 7-0 lead after Cox's conversion kick went straight through the goal posts. i The Wildcat's running attack secrned powerless against the forward wnll of the Blades, and after I'appas' punt, which was downed by a Blade on Taft's four-yard line, the Wildcats were held stationary on the 4. which forced them to punt out. Nichols received the ptlnt on Taft's !••"> and ran it down to the 25-yard HUP. Krnie "Lightning" Nichols again with the pigskin flashed i around tho left side of the line and skirted the full 2f> yards for another Blade score, which gave the Taft men trouble just to watch him let. alone trying to catch him. Nichols' conversion attempt on a line buck was stopped by the center of the TaTt line. With .lust a few minutes remaining in the firs.1 half the Wildcats received a break when Chappie recovered a kick which was blocked by Thomas on the Blades' SH-yard line. The Taft. team was unable to take advantage of their first and only break because of the East Bakersfield line which again stopped them cold. Tho half gun sounded with the Blades out in front by a score of 13-0. AVhon play WHS resumed Barns of the Wildcats kicked off to the Blades and the ball was taken by Cox behind his goal line and fan way up to tho Blades' 38-yard, which brought fans momentarily to their feet, bc- FERGL'SON cause It looked as though he was going all the way for a score. On the next play it was Heady- going 35 yards through the center of tho line to carry the ball down to the Wildcats' 28-yard stripe. Then Seeger was trapped by a host of Wildcat linemen for a loss of 11 yards, back to the :!9. With the ball going to Nichols, he scampered Hi i yards, deep into Taft's territory on the 211. Then Heady, on a series of line plunges, carried the ball clown to ;he o-yard line, from where he finally carted it over for the Blades' third touchdown. Cox's conversion kick was good and the end of the third quarter saw the Blades on the tall end of a 20-0 tally. The Blades' final touchdown came in tho last quarter when Corn, setting it up. intercepted a Wildcat pass oti the 40-yard line and ran it down to the Taft's 15-yard marker. Corn took the ball on the next play and skirted the full 15 for a touchdown, but there was a clipping penalty on part of the Blades and the play was called back to the 15 from where tho Blades received the 15- yard penalty, which set them on the .'tO-yni-d line. On the next down Lnnderos shot a pass to Corn which j ho took on the 12-yard line. Laii- i doros carried it down to the Ii ; and then Corn drove the pigskin over for the 2Kth point of the ball- game. Ulizaldc's conversion attempt failed and the score remained at tho end of the tilt, Blades—26, AVild- cats—0. In the preliminary game the liast Bakersfield lightweight Daggers downed the Taft Bobcats with a 12-7 victory in a contest which was quite the opposite from the oue played by their big brothers. The end of the first quarter saw no score, even though both teams knocked at each other's door, time after time. The first touchdown came in the second quarter when the sensational little Taft back, Tapper, ran 34 yards to pay dirt Gibson converted on a line buck and the Bobcats were out in front at the half, 7-0. In the final quarter the Daggers came back with Florence and Jue heading their attack. The Daggers ran the ball down to the 1-yard line, then Jue carted it over for 6. The line .buck conversion attempt was stopped. The second score came with a 27-yard pass from Florence to Daly.

Nazis Shift More Tanks for Aachen Counterblow Continued From Pnee One ho railed lialiltable, and they were heavily damaged. Some 10,000 to 20.000 civilians of the city's normal 1(10,000 were bo- llevcil still inside Aachen, nnd the garrison was estimated to number about I'OOO. Bulldozers were heaping the debris of Aachen in great piles as correspondents drove in today, clearing the way for military traffic. ATujor Thomas F. Lancer of Madison, Conn., who will be military governor of Aachen, said ho und his stuff were ready to move in. Me was preparing to handle the problem of a water supply, which had been cut off for three weeks, and had food aifd medical supplies ready. Supreme headquarters revealed that German _pressure against the northern end of the British corridor below Arnhem was lessening as the Germans shifted some of their best troops, including 'those who hurled the British Red Devil paratroops back across the lower Rhine last month, toward Aachen for what may develop into one of tho decisive battles of the war. United Press War Correspondent Henry T. Gorrell reported from the front that the enemy forces massing northeast of ' Aachen were among Germany's best panzer outfits, specialists in counterattacks. The urgency of their mission was seen in the fact that they were maneuvering in broad daylight within easy range of massed American artillery and hovering swarms of planes. As fast as the enemy tanks were spotted, rocket-firing aircraft roared into the attack and American artillery batteries loosed concentrated "Monty barrages" on them. More than 60 German tanks already have been knocked out. The Germans put up comparatively strong aerial opposition for the second straight day yesterday in a futile attempt to protect their armor, sending 100 fighters against the 'American formations. Eighteen German and 8 American planes were shot down in aerial combats. Other Third Army troops reached Embermenll, 24 miles southeast of the Pnrroy forest and approximately 24 miles southeast of Nancy, and also straightened a 3-mile line from Rechicourt, 18 miles easi of Ij^ncy south to Parroy. The Germans continued their counterattacks in the Vosges mountains and In the Belfort gap, with strong artillery and mortar st FAVORED TROY MEETS AIRDEVILS 1-TIES.YO.

Welterweight King Floors Jannezzo BOSTON', Oct. 14. <UP>—Ray (Sugar) Robinson of Now York, eon- sidf-red the uncrowned king- of the welterweights before he entered the army last year, today held his first victory since his medical discharge— a. second-round technical knockout over veteran Izzy Jannazxo, of Brooklyn. Robinson, who has .suffered but one defeat as a professional, floored Jannazzo three times in the second round last night before Referee Tommy Rawson halted the fight. .Fannazxo, badly dazed, climbed to his feet and protested the decision while the crowd of 7347 fans booed at Rawson's action. Sugar Ray appeared off his usual sharp punching form lind missed several opportunities to score in the first round, which was about even. Robinson opened up in the second, and after a brief exchange, floored Jannazzo with a left hook. Izzy got up and was dropepd again, the second time for a count of five, and, when he arose, Robinson was over him like a tiger to score the final knockdown. In two previous fights, Robinson beat the veteran by a T. K. O. and a decision. Ray's only professional loss came at the hands of Jake Lamotta of N'ew York at Detroit last year. He later avenged it by gaining a decision. He scored an easy triumph over Henry Armstrong In his last Madison Square Garden main event before being inducted. Robinson weighed 14S'i and Jannazzo 153. The bout grossed $18,747. Golf Champion Gets Release From Navy CHICAGO, Oct. 14.

Y., comes an almost kissed-off story that Commander Gene Tunney of the navy, former heavyweight champion, has finally broken down and admitted that competitive sports have a value In service training. He made this about-face while visiting a navy detachment at Cornell University, which is as pro-football as F. D. R. is pro-Democrat. Entirely unexpected was this Tunney admission, because Shakespearean Gene had been the foremost advocate of "muscle-jerking" mass exercises, as opposed to competitive sports that stressed teamwork. Just what Tunnoy's status in the navy is now we do not know. But wo recall that he was "Mr. Big" In deciding what exercises recruits should take when he was appointed in l!)4t director of the physical trainIns: and athletic program of the navy, with headquarters at Washington. Tunnry, the stubborn feller who shrugged off tlio "long count" against Dempscy nt Chicago in 1flL'7 and fought on to retain his title, must have been sold on teamwork in athletics as a preparation for CUDDY service since late last January, when he returned from a six-months tour of the Pacific battle areas. But he makes his admission now. as if he. had got through figuring it out with paper and pencil. About nine months later! Tunney has a good brain—an exceptional brain. He lifted himself, with his own bootstraps, higher than any person we can recall who was a professional fighter. The marine of the last war—the poor kid from New York's Greenwich village—Is a multi-millionaire, and socially prominent. Which is nice goin 1 In any man's language. But we were highly surprised when Gentleman Gene went all out for muscle-perking, without giving a nod to the brain business of team* work in competitive athletics. Because Gene was one. guy who moulded his body, and his movements and his blows along lines that w,ere entirely strategical during his ring days. He developed muscles and coordination and split-second timing that would provide teamwork for his fighting machine—as he back- pedalled miles on the road fn the morning, left-jabbed the little pear- shaped bag, and spent hours perfecting that straight right to the heart on the heavy "sand" bag.
