Sports MORNING HERALD Section Marketeers Defeat Olson's Swedes OVER THE WAVES—Horace Dodge, wealthy Detroit sportsman, tunes j up speedboat Dclphine IX on Indian Creek, Miami Beach. TWELFTH STRAIGHT VICTORY IS SCORED BY LOCAL CAGERS Stonebraker's Basket in Closing Minutes of Play Brings Victory—Visitors Put on Passing ,. Exhibition for Gathering Olson's Terrible Swedes didn't prove as terrible as expected yesterday afternoon on the Armory court before the largest gathering of basketball fans that has turned out In years in this city. Everyone was expecting the Swedes'to break the win streak of the Marketeers but the'locals completely upset the dope bucket by scoring their twelfth straight victory of the year, the final score being 30 to 2S. Putting on the "Hare and Tortoise" act, the Marketeers not only overhauled the Swedes in the final period of play but turned in one of the greatest defensive periods ever seen here, holding the crack traveling quint scoreless In the final quarter. Stonbraker * Star | —; The play of the entire team was of-the highest standard but It must be said that Jack Stonebraker turned in one of his brightest performances. He was a thorn in the side of the Swedes right from the start and his floor work could not have been improved upon. With but a minute or two to go he sank a shot from the charity line that knotted the count and follo-ved np by a one hand cast while on the dead run under the hoop for the basket that gave the Markets, their victory. King Kong Keller and Morin also played sen- sjitlonal games. ROOM AND BOARD By GENE AHERN GUARDSMEN WIN FAiHAGE GAME Berkeley Springs Rovers Defeated in Last Period Rally by 37-35 Score For the visitors Pettigrew Ivaa the outstanding star, leading in scoring with a dozen points, and five of his six baskets were of the long distance variety. With, but ten seconds to go he attempted a shot, three quarters the length of the floor, only to have the ball 1 "«ngHsh" itself out of the 'meshes. Pass Work Sensational Fans saw some sensational pass "• work as the Swedes.kept the ball moving and at times It was almost Impossible for the eye to follow the leather. 'Breaking fast, the Swedes took the lead at the start and were out front by. a 10 to 7 score at the end of the first period. The second quarter saw the visitors Increase their lead by holding the Markets to a lone field goal and scoring 11 points themselves. The snore at half time was 21 to 9. .'The third period found the Mar— kiteers plugging asvay and getting results as they * qutscored the Swedes in this period 12 to 7, the score at the end of the third period being 28 to 21 In favor of the visitors. ... Playing a steady game and making every shot count, while guard- Ing in the most sensational manner, the Marketeers brought tho Crowd right out of their seats as they slowly gained on the Swedes in the final quarter. In fact, the Swedes could not get going and with two minutes to go called lor time out- to organize themselves. Les Young, after play was resumed, sank a long shot to bring the Mar- k6ts to within one point of the 'Swedes and then Stonebraker knotted the count with a foul toss. Makei Winning Points When the former University of Maryland ace sank the basket that proved to be the winning markers, the crowd went wild. Intercepting a pass, the Markets clung to the ball until Pettigrew gained possession and attempted that long shot which finished the game. The Swedes to date have won 32 contests and dropped five, including the one to the Marketeers yesterday. Excellent sportsmanship Staging a last period rally the Company B basketeers 'managed to defeat the Berkeley Springs Rovers by a 37 to 35 score in a preliminary contest at the Armory yesterday to the Markets-Swedes battle. The West Virginians displayed a well balanced aggregation of tossers and had the Guardsmen on the small end of the score for the major portion of the game. In the final quarter the Soldiers found the range on the cords and with Snyder and Boyer showing the way went into a tie with the visitors and then sunk the basket that gave them a victory. Floor play was of the best'and both teams handled the ball in excellent style. P. Catlett and Kline led the attack for the visitors with 11 and 12 points, while "Corky" Snyder and Boyer stood out in scoring for the home forces with 12 and 10 points. On Tuesday night the Guardsmen will travel to Mercersburg to meet the Maroons of that place and a good game can be expected.

FIREMEN'S BOWLING LEAGUE SPORTS WORLD TO MIS5JDDIE NEIL Famous Writer Is Killed While Covering Spanish War; Athletes Mourn By ALAN GOULD New York, Jan. 2 (#>)—There's a big broad grin on the face of the robust, reckless young giant, who with characteristic Irish humor, autographed his picture: "Nino years in double harness— and not an argument." It's typical of Edward Joseph Neil, Jr., whose sports-writing career was indelibly identified with the "golden decade" of American sports; who always wanted to be where the action—or argument was thickest, and who died covering the Spanish civil war—from the ringside. To millions of American sports- page readers who appreciated his rare gifts of descriptive writing, to hundreds of sports champions, leaders and co-workers who knew Eddie Neil's magnetic personality as well as his extraordinary talent, TALES IN TIDBITS Goldberg Gives Lowdown en "Salary" at Pitt Ail-American Star Praises Jock Sutherland Dana Bible Explains Changes in Grid Rules WILLIAMSPORT IS WINNER OF FIRST Hagerstown All Stars Defeated in First Game of Series by 3 to 2 Score A goal by Pete Long lato in the contest gave the Wlllinmsport Soccer Club a 3 to 2 decision in the first game of the three-game series for the county championship, the Hagerstown club being the loser. Play was fast throughout with neither club scoring until after 30 minutes of play when Nemzek booted OIIB home. With ibout ten minutes remaining to be ilayed in the first half, Nem/.ek nude good on a penalty kick giv- ng Hagerstowu a 2 to 0 lead. Williamsport scored just before he half closed when J. Ebersole shot and Feigley deflected the ball nto the net, the half ending with he All-Stars leading 2 to 1. The Stars held this lead until J. Eb- rsole knotted the count late in he final half and with but five linutes to' play Williamsport re- eived a corner kick. Brown cen- ered well and Pete Long headed nto the net. Both teams played good soccer •ith Browning, Nemzek, E. Bowrs, Alexander and Feigley stalld- ig out for the lo-ers while J. Eb- rsole, Banzliof, Donb, Long and rown stood out for the winners. Lineup and summary; LINEMEN FEATURE BOWL CONTESTS OVER COUNTRY Forward Wqlls Deciding Factors in Winning of Contests—Fans Enthuse over Play of Stars in Smaller Battles By The Associated Press It's hard to prove anything by the results of the New Year's Day crop of "Bowl" games, except that the fans will turn out in great numbers at any time of the year to see good grid teams in action. However, a survey of yesterday's half-dozen games from Florida to California reveal two significant facts. ; The first is that in spile of all the sure-shot passers and slippery ball carriers, a strong, fast-charging line still is the best weapon in football; the second that a couple of teams that haven't scouted each other and proceed on the theory that the safest system is to score early and often can stir up a lot of excitement. Linemen Are Heroes In every one of yesterday's co tests, from the Pasadena Ros Bowl where California's "starless team conquered Alabama 13-0 b fore a record crowd of 90,000 to th per- was displayed by both teams and the handling of the ball by the Swedes made a decided hit with the large gathering.

Started In 1926 With a Hair and .1 flavor rivalled by few if any of contemporar- 'es, Neil captured and dramatized the spirit of American sports achievement at its peak. He combined power of analysis and observation with extraordinary personal enthusiasm for the things he saw and described. He knew and bad the confidence of nearly all the great figures of sport in the years when Jack Dempscy and By BILL BRAUCHER Central Press Sports Editor Professionalism among the football players at University of Pitls- burgli is grossly exaggerated. That story about the Pitt team striking for money por participation in the Rose Bowl game was mostly imaginary. Jock Sulhcrlaiid will remain as coach at Pitt until he has whiskers down, to hero if the students, particularly Ihe football players, have anything to say about it. Those are the statements of < young man who ought to know vcr; well what he is talking about, mean Marshall Goldberg, AlI-Ameri can halfback of the great 1937 Piti team. ' We are indebted to Gordon Cob bledick, astute columnist Cleveland Plain Dealer, interview with the star halfbacl that is something in the nature o a scoop. Mister Cobbledick collar ed the guy in Cleveland where Goldberg attended a national con vention of Phi Epsilon Pi fraternity "Yes, I've heard about profes sionalism at Pitt," said Goldberg "But I haven't seen any of it. I saw one story to the effect that I dragged down $1,000 a month playing. It sounds like nice work if you can get it. About Employment "I won't say that a great many football players haven't been helped through school by jobs provided for them. But that's true with a lot of students who don't play football, too. If there is any discrimi- Gene Tunney, Bob Jones and Bill "ition I'd say it was against the Tllden, Paavo Niirmi and Babe Ruth, Tex Rickarrt and Knute Rockne were fho big headliners. Neil embarked on Ills sports- writing career in 1926 with a background of New England experience and contagious enthusiasm. He prepped at Andover, played football until a ''trick" knee forced htm to the sidelines, learned lo toss the hammer under the tutelage of Johnny Magce at Bowdoin College, and did a few turns at schoolboy coaching before, getting his first Associated Press job in Boston. He was attached to the Baltimore staff when we worked on our first sports story, a national marathon championship, in 192(1. Shortly general thereafter he joined the sports staff in New York.

"As to that yarn about us striking for pay [or playing in the Rose Bowl—that WHS false and it put the university and the players in a pretty bad light. All that was said about money in that meeting when the team voted not to go to Pasadena was something I said myself. I pointed out that playing in the Rose Bowl was a financial rap for many of the boys on tho team who had chances to work during Christmas vacation and pick up a little money, 1 merely said I doubted whether the fellows could afford the trip and pass up that dough. "As a matter of fact, we were influenced more than anything else by the fact that we're tired of football. Wo played ten games this year and there wasn't a soft spot on ).hc schedule. We were in earnest when we said we didn't want any part of the Rose Bowl. "I read that rumor that Jock Sutherland would leave Pitt and take Howard Jones' coaching job at Southern California in 193!), but that was the Drst I had heard of it. I hope that isn't true. Sutherland is a great coach. I think Pitt's success is due more to Sutherland than the material. He makes football players— and he is in solid with the student body. Of course the college administration doesn't always feel the same way as the students." We might add that Jock Sutherland also is one of the writers' favorite coaches, too. He helps them, Football rules seem lo be in pret iy good shape, according to Dana X. Bible of Texas, spokesman foi the rules committee. Two sug ested changes are designed to help the offense. • One proposes the bal be brought In 15 yards from the sideline, instead of ten, to give more opportunity for plays to the short side. The other is a' recommendation that a forward pass which touches an ineligible player behind the line of scrimmage be ruled incomplete and count as down, instead of the offensive team osing possession. "Bible says the alteration should encourage Ihe shovel pass behind be line and give the offense more chances to score. He ought to be an expert lasses. He coaches in a conference where they pass from every angle except the roof of a passing street car. VMIiamsport Po. Hagerstown lentzer G Alexander tumbaugh ..

OOGRUITS WINNER IN FROZEN NORTH An-grits Defeated 7 to 6 in "Ice Bowl" Contest Before 182 Fans RICH OFFER MADE CHAMPION LOUIS Newark, N.

The audi- orium has a seating capacity of 2,000. The offer stipulated that Louis mist successfully defend his chain- ilonship when he meets Nathan Mann in New York on February 3rd. King Island, Alaska, Jan. 2 (fP). —The natives howled, the huskies growled, and an Arctic blizzard hid (lie fun, when football came to the land of the midnight sun. The Oogruits (Walrusses,) coached by Ben Levin, defeated the Air- grits (Reindeer), coached by Ben Chisholm, 7 to 6, in a New Year's Day "ice bowl" game that had everything. After a 30-yard punt return, left half Pulak swept right end for 50 yards and the Ail-grits' only score, which was made in the first five minutes. The Oogruits' scoring play, with less than five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, saw fullback Charles Pigmiak lateral to right half Pnpunak, who in turn forward passed to quarterback Sink, who rambled 10 yards to the tieing touchdown. With tho 1S2 spectators and the wind howling and 'iln-eikiug, and tlu score tied, Suluk, in the huddle of pnrkaclad Eskimos, called for pile driver Pigmiak to plunge instead of place kick for the precious extra point that was to mean victory. Pigmiak, fighting like a Polar hear, plunged over center witli most of the left, side of the Airgrit line riding on his shoulders as he fell over the line tor the point. The game—first ever played in Ihe tar north—thrilled the islanders. They sang and danced on the blizzard swept field during intermission. Miami Orange Bowl, where Aubu turned back Michigan State, 6- the linemen were the heroes an no longer unsung ones. It was the California line, backe by an alert secondary defense tha rendered ineffective the Tide speed and air game, that rippe Alabama apart in two long touch down marches. It was the An bur line that held Michigan State to 4 yards gained by rushing. It wa the power of the Rice forwards th; finally halted All-America'Whlzze White in the cotton bowl at Dalla and carried the Owls to a 28-1 triumph over Colorado. The forward walls also were th deciding factor as Santa Clar whipped Louisiana for the secom straight year, 6 to 0, before ; 45,000 turnout in the New Orlean, Sugar Bowl; as the all-star Eas and West teams battled to a score less standoff before 59,000 fans a San Francisco and as West Vii ginia beat out Texas Tech, 7-6, il the Sun Bowl at El Paso. As the scores indicate, most o the fireworks were set off in the Cotton Bowl where 37,000 fans 'saw While personally account for the two Colorado touchdowns in the first quarter only to take a sounc beating in the end. Long Drives Feature Before the game the teams were entirely unknown quantities to each other. Rice learned White was as good as advertised when he escorted the ball down and passed to Antonio fov the opening tally, then intercepted Ernie Lain's first pass and" dashed 53 yards for the second. The Owls also learned the Coloradans didn't have anyone to match the Whizzer and from there on Lain carried the freight. Behind a line that pushed the Buffaloes around for gains of 422 yards on the ground and through the air, Lain passed for three touchdowns and scored once himself as Rice staged scoring drives of 72, 57, 91 and 50 yard Alabama, taking its first defeat in five visits to the Rose Bowl, found itself slightly overmatched although the teams came out almost even on the statistics. The California scores, both made by Vic Bottari on end runs, climaxed steady marches of 63 and 44 yards. When 'Bama tried to go to town the Bears' secondary was in there intercepting passes, recovering fumbles and smacking down the runners or Sam Chapman was kicking out of danger. Twice little Herky Mosely made costly fumbles, one to start California's first scoring drive and one to end an Alabama threat on the three- yard stripe. At New Orleans, Santa Clara forwards smothered the Bayou Tigers' running attack after stopping the first L. S. U. try on the one-yard stripe. The Bronchos scored JANUARY SALE 20% Off Blue & Gray Shop 4 South Potomac St. through the air in the second quarter as Ray McCarthy took passes from Jimmy Barlow and Bruno Pellegrini. Passes Pay Off Auburn also had to lake the air lanes to show the 18,970 Orange Bowl fans one touchdown. A pass, George Kenmore lo Ralph Q'Gwinne, went to the two yard line, then O'Gwinne ran for the touchdown. But the Plainsmen had a big edge in the play, making 12 first doWns to Michigan State's two and gaining 197 yards to the Spartan's 40 by rushing. Two teams that turned out to be perfectly matched played the first tie in the history of the East-West series. The under-dog Westerners, with Dwight Sloan of Arkansas pitching to Elmer .Dorhmann of Nebraska, came up with, a passing game that offset the East's running superiority and gave them two chances for futile field goal attempts. West Virginia also can give thanks to its line for the Sun Bowl triumph over Texas Tech. The Mountaineers got their seven points when they recovered Gene Barrett's fumble on the three yard line, sent Dave Isaac across and Kelly Moan converted. Then after Tech came back with an 80-yard touchdown drive, the West Virginia line crashed through to block Neely's tick. The rest, of the way way the Raiders had the edge although West Virginia lost a touchdown when Harry Clark's 90-yard run was nullified by a clipping penalty. A seventh New Year's game saw .he University of Washington romp .0 a 53-13 victory over the University of Hawaii at Honolulu. PLAYING IN CUMBERLAND.
