THE MUN'CIE EVENING I'RESS. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7. 1932 PACK NINK il j Nation's Best Players Comprise Honor Team Grcen Bav,'ZTlm-Each ! Place Three. BY GEORGE KIRKSEY. CHICAGO, Dec. 7 (U.R) The best eleven football players in the land are named today by the United Press. They represent the pick of the National Professional League, the fastest football circuit in operation. Three players each from Green Bay and Portsmouth, two each from the New York Giants and Chicago Bears and one from the Chicago Cardinals are named on the first team, which follows: Ponition. plaver. team, college. End. Ray Flaherty, New York GiaoU, Gona. Tacfcie, Cal Hubbard. Green Bay, Geneva. Guard. 'Grover Emerson. Portsmouth. Texas. Cenfer. Tim Moynihan. Chicago Cardinals. Notre Dame. Cnard. Juiea Carlson, Chicago Bears. Or.ion State. Tack!e. Lm Grant. New York Giants. Kew York University. Er.d. Tom Nash. Green Bay. Georgia. Quarterback. Earl Clark, Portsmouth, Coiorado College. Halfback. Arnold Herber. Green Bay, St. Rr;s College. Halfback. Roy Lumpkin. Portsmouth, Georgia Tech. Fullback. Bronko Nagurski, Chicago Bears. Minnesota. Potsy Claris, Portsmouth coach, : Ralph Jones. Chicago Bears' coach, and Rocky Wolfe, attache of the Chicago Bears and Cardinals who probably has seen more pro games this season than any other coach, critic or sports writer, aided in selecting the all-pro team. Clark Great General. The all-pro backfield combines four of the greatest football players operating on any gridiron. Earl Dutch) Clark, Portsmouth quarterback, is one of the keenest field generals who ever called a signal. When his team's plays don't work Clark makes up his own plays. He is a brilliant passer and runner and a capable kicker. Arnold Herber of Green Bay is another all around sta kicker, passer, runner; blocker and defensive player. His passing and running have been outstandings in Green Bay's offensive in every game. Roy Lumpkin of Portsmouth is the ' league's greatest blocker and defensive fullback. Lumpkin is also a good plunger and passer. Bronko Nagurski is is a terrific plunging back, a great defensive player and devastating blocker. With Lumpkin and Nagurski to plunge through ahead of them, Clark and Herber would be almost impossible to stop. The all-pro line has two big powerful ends, a pair of giant tackles, two fast, aggressive guards and a roving center with uncanny ability to diagnose plays before the ball is snapped. Flaherty of the New York Giants catches a football like a bastball, and is almost impossible to cover. Nash's forte is defensive play. Hubbard, weighing 225, and Grant, weighing 225, are impregnable on defense, and can open a hole in the side of a locomotive if necessary. Emerson, the little Portsmouth terror, has played 60 minutes of every game this year, and has never been blocked out of play. Carlson is another defensive terror. Moynihan Best Lineman. But the greatest all-round lineman in the league is Tim Moynihan, playing his first year with the Chicago Cardinals. Roving up and down the line, Moynihan perhaps made more tackles than any other two players. The second team selection follows: . Position, player, team. End. Dilweg. Green Bay. Tackle, Chnstenson. Portsmouth. Guard. Zeller. Green Bay. Center, Barragar, Green Bay. Guard. Kopcha, Chicago Bears. Tackle. Gordon. Chicago Cardinals. End. Hewitt Chicago Bears. Quarter. Molesworth. Chicago Bears. Halfback. Presneil. Portsmouth. Halfback. Camniglio, Stapletou. Fullback. Minkle, Green Bay. FIGHT RESULTS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. !

It's The PRESS for Advertising MIDGETS SPURT TO EASY TRIUMPH Hartford City Team Falls by 37-19 Score. Opening the 1932 season in great style, the Muncie Midgets swept away the Hartford City Juniors to win an easy 37-to-19 victory on the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium Mast night. In their initial set-to of the year, the locals displayed a brand of ball thatshould promise a comfortable season. On the heels of the Muncie-Hartford City fracas, representatives from ten Indiana cities, members of the Indiana Junior Basketball Association, will meet in the Y. M. C. A. tonight to draw up schedules for both "A" and "B' divisions of junior competition. The meeting will open at 7:30 p. m., with J. S. Johnston, of Indianapolis, president of the association, in charge. Teams to be represented on the schedule-making body include Muncie, Anderson, Marion, Fairmount, Huntington, Kolromo, Newcastle, Frankfort, Lafayette and Indianapolis. From the Capitol City, three teams will participate. Midgets Start Late. By virtue of their lopsided win over Hartford City, the Midgets got away to a flying start. With a bare three-point lead at the end of the first half, when the score stood 11 to 8, the localf found their stride and won going away. After the start of the second half they ran up a 22-to-8 lead before the visitors located the hoop. Behind the sniping of Lewellen, classy Midget forward, H. A. Petti-John's proteges counted 16 points in the third stanza. Stewart, tow-headed center for the losers, -looked best, hitting four times from the field. The summary: HARTFORD CITY ( , MIDGETS, F. F.
