The first quarter saw no score with both elevens playing good defensive bull. Toward the end of the quarter .Mintcr fumbled on its own 1 ">•>•!! rd line to give Fresno State the opc-nlng break. After being held for ihrce running plays by Mintor's hard-charging forward wall, Fresno decided they would go over the heads of the Fliers with an attempted field goal, but Mongelll's kick went wide and Fresno was un- iiblu to take advantage of the scoring opportunity, The Fliers first score came late in the .second quarter when Mlnter's fullback. Williams, carted the pig- sUin over on a off-turklc buck from the 2-ynrd line. The Airmen had driven to that scoring position with a series of running plays from their own nil-yard lino. George's conversion attempt was no good and tho half-time gun saw Minler Field out in front with six points. The second touchdown was set up when Sidlcnscr, right halfback, in- j tercepted a Fresno pass on the 50- I yard stripe and ran 30 yards down j to Fresno's 20-yard line. i On the next two plays the ball j was advanced down to ,the 6-yard i line, from where Moore carried It i over on a buck through tho center .' of the line. George's conversion kick i was good and the Filers added an- i other seven points to their tally. The final score came In the last quarter on a long pass from Fresi no's 31-yard line down to Nelson who j took it on the 10 and side-stepping i three Fresno invaders ran it over. ; George's kick for the extra point was good and the ball game ended ; with the Fliers on the tall end of i a 20-0 victory.

The Marines came back in the final quarter on a pass from Paul Governali to Laverne Gagne and a run by Cliff Battles, but fell short of a tie.

Baseball Play LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23. UP>— Two weeks have been added to next year's Pacific Coast League baseball playing schedule, and plans call for approximately 200 games, compared with the 179 played by most of the clubs this year. League directors, meeting last Saturday, set the 1945 season opening for March 31, and the close for September 23. Damon Miller, secretary of the San Francisco club, is drawing up a tentative schedule which will await formal adoption at the next Coast League meeting in January. The Portland and Seattle clubs requested that the schedule allow them to close on their home grounds. The directors, consisting of club owners, voted to propose to the National Baseball Association at its yearly meeting in Buffalo that the players' draft price for all classifications of circuits be increased. The price for AA leagues, such as the coast circuit, would go from 07500 to $15,000. Also suggested was raising the recall price from $6000 to $11,000. Recommendations will be placed before the major league meeting later if they are ratified by the association at its December 6 meeting. Continuation of the Governor's cup play-off series next year was voted by the coast loop directors. They will consider ways of enlarging the present players' pool of $12,500.
