In addition to seeing the best in ! the business—70 yard punts, 5" J yard passes and 50 yard field goals j missed by inches—the professional game has. plenty of color anyhow.

It's really worth the price of admission to watch that Slingin' Sammy Baugh punt, pass and carry that ball. Then there's one Clark Hinkle, late of Bucknell, who stood on his own thirty and booted the ball 15 feet on the other side of the opponent's goal line. Professional rules are more lenient, but no college aggregation could would be expected to play the kind of football the paid pigskinners execute. It's just a case of having 11 Ail-Americans on a team iuste of just one. Between the halves, for the color seekers, there was a drill by a swanky drum and bugle corps, college songs by a glee club and other items which by this time have escaped my memory. In conclusion, 1 just wanted you to kuow that the professional game has "IT" and that I'll have to be coaxed to watch the college boys play next season. Sincerely, ELMER. Sammy Baugh Hero of Redskins 7 Win Washington, Nov. 28, (JP).— Slinging- Sammy Baugh pitched lhe Washington Redskins to a 14 to 6 •victory over the Greenbay Packers loday in a National Professional League football game. Baugh whipped a 55-yard pass to shot and Mitchell followed with foul to make the count read 29 to 2S. Morin and Les Ything clinched the contest with a pair of double deckers. The visitors outscored the Mar- keteers from the floor but inability to make good on their chances from the "charity line" proved their downfall. The Senators registered 13 field goals to a dozen for the locals but from the foul line they were only able to sink two out of ten while the Markets made good nine out of twelve. Thereby hangs the story. Take Early Lead . Jumping into a lead at the start the Markets were out front 10 to 6 at quarter time and at half time were leading 20 to 12. The Senate boys took to long range shooting in the third period with better than average success and also ilghtene< their defense so when the fourth period started they were trailing bj a 23 to 21 score. From then out it was nip and tuck. Throughout the contest play was hard and fast with the work of Les Young and Chub Keller standing out on the defense. Stonebraker played by far the best floor game that has been witnessed here in years and the pass work of the winners was brilliant. For the Senators the work of Mitchell and Edelin was a bright feature.

Although Graduate Manager Kenneth Priestley declined to answer questions, the impression prevailed that he was awaiting replies to informal queries as to the availability of one or more eastern teams. This has been the procedural custom in the past. The western team, in this cast the undefeated hut once-tied Bears, usually sends out feelers to the eastern school of its choice and does not extend a formal invitation until unofficially' assured of its acceptance. j "Regardless of the hour, day night, we will announce the nam of the chosen team the minute th matter is settled," Priesiley said. The virtual wind-up of the regi lar grid season yesterday produce tew if any new factors to compl cate Priestley's selection job. 'BIG FOUR'OF GRID NAMED Pittsburgh, C a I i fornia, Fordham and Alabama Rate at Top of Heap New York. Nov. 28 (/P)— On the ;sis of gridiron returns now com- ilote except in scattered precincts n the south and far west, there's 10 reasonable doubt today that the .937 "big four" of college football :oiiiprises Pittsburgh, California, i'ordham and Alabama. AVhether they maintain that ranking order in the Associated Press final poll and regardless of the post-season "Bowl" pairings now lieing concocted, this unbeaten r.uartet has proved its consistent Don Lash Winner of Running Title Newark, N. 3., Nov. 28, (/p). _ Con Lash, former Indiana University siar, won his fourth £1 might National Senior A. A. U. cross country championship today when he ran 10,000 .meters over a rain-drenched Branch Brook Park course in 32.57.4. Lash pulled away at the start and had the approximately 6 1-4 miles race to hlinsell throughout, finishing 150 yards ahead of his formei Indiana teammate, Tommy Deck aid.

A sweeping shakeup' among the sectional leaders, with Pittsburgh and Dartmouth in the east, Santa Clr.ra on the west coast, and Nebraska in the Big Six, alone sharing or reoccupying the heights they held in 1936 in football's "major league" ranks. 2. A continued swing of power toward the east, where no less than five major teams finished among the unbeaten though tied, and a sixth, LaFayette, enjoyed the novelty of a completely unblemished slate. 3. A ferocity on the part of the "under-dogs" that produced a raft of form reversals, from coast to coast, and furnished consolation prizes for numerous teams other- wine far removed from the championship spotlight. 4. A sharp general upturn in attendance and gate receipts, despite a succession of stormy Saturdays, topped off by the hardihood of 102,000 spectators who jammed Philadelphia's Municipal Stadium in the rain yesterday to witness Army's 6-0 triumph over the Navy. All the ^collegiate topnotchers came through the last week-end of combat successfully. Alabama met Vanderbilfs challenge with a 9-7 victory at Nashville on Thanksgiving Day to give the Crimson Tide an unbeaten-untied season and undisputed possession of the southeastern conference title.

ALTO QUINT Locals Forced to Limit to Take Measure of Pennsy Five 30 tc 26 Company B cagers gained a well earned victory over the Mt. Alto, Pa., quint yesterday afternoon on the Armory floor in a preliminary game to the Markets-Senate Beer contest, the h'nal co.uut being 30 to 26. The contest was in doubt until the final minutes of play when the Guardsmen turned on the "heat" and forged to the front, never to be headed. With Metz, Peddicord and Boyer showing the way the Guardsmen played even ball with the visitors throughout the first half. The Mt. Alto quint, composed of former \ 7 .'aynesboro High players displayed excellent team work and had the Guardsmen worried in their efforts to halt their attack. Kraft played an outstanding game for the visitors while the entire Company B quint played well with no one player being outstanding. Lineup and, summary: Company B BAKERS GAIN GRID HUE WON EASY VICTORY OVER TANNERS Paw Paw Team Unable to Cope with Fast Play of Manbeck Tossers Hubert Price, reputed to be one of the best point getters on any amateur basketball quint in West Virginia, failed to live up to his reputation on the Odd Fellow's court on Sunday afternoon when the Manbecks swamped the Paw Paw Tanners by a score'of 72-23, the highest score which the Bakers have rolled up so far this season. Sensational Shots Handicapped somewhat hy a strange floor the Tanners seemed unable to get going although in the last half they showed up better with Price dropping in some one- hand shots. Basore and Ohler of the Bakers went on a scoring spree and they together brought in a total of forty counters. The Tanners had only a poor defense against the more rangy Bakers and were unable to stop the repented attempts at goal by the Manbecks. Both Basore and Ohler put up one of the most sensational shooting exhibitions ever witnessed in this city.

B , K c OLD LINERS LEAD FREE STATE TEAMS Terpt' Record of Eight Gives Them Top Rating Wins and Two Defeats Baltimore, Nov. 28 (/P)—Maryland's 1937 football season passed today into the realm of things gone but not forgotten, with the records of the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins and Navy's (logged tight against Army dominating the discourses of the post-season quarterbacks. The College Parkers' record of eight wins against two defeats was an argument in favor of the domain of "dlpsy-do" football. Hopkins proved a team could win, even without commercialized ballyhoo. And Navy showed an under-dog could rise and fight, although it might not win. Banking second only to Maryland in the State with four wins in six starts, Hopkins' "de-emphasized" football team capped Its season yesterday with a 13-0 victory over St. John's of Annapolis, its arch rival. Miiligan and Buck plunged over for touchdowns after marches of 30 and 25 yards on the muddy field. Luckless Navy, a team that spent the season always on the verge of rising to the heights that had been expected of it, bowed 6-0 to Army at Philadelphia yesterday before a crowd of 102,000 in the rain, mist and mud. It took only one (juick thrust, Big Jim Craig's two-yard line smash in the first quarter after Army had made two passes good for 38 yards, to gew up the service classic for the soldiers, who ttpent the rest of the game repulsing Navy's threats. The ioss gave the' Middies an even break for the season as tol- as wins and losses are concerned, hut to be heat hy Army always Is a bitterer doge to the Middies than all other defeats combined.
