Dec. 19 -UP) — Fordham will send an ''Iron Man" team into the Cotton Bowl game ..Against Texas A. & M.—:i powerful tricky eleven without any apparent weakness. The Ranis from Rose Hill have a slatting line-up composed mostlj of 60-minuie men. They can pass, kick, run and block with the best in the land. According to Coach Jimmy Crowley. one of Notre Dame's immortal four horsemen, (his "is the best team I've ever coached." And that includes Crow- !rys unbeaten eleven of 1937 which vas the famed "sev- <-.n blocks of granite." This 1940 Pordham eleven is better balanced than any in the history of the school. Some years Crowley came up with great 'halfbacks but no line; other years— 1937 for example—he had a great line but no men to carry the mail, everything. a variation of the P^jH^^H&stem.

Two Hard Hitting Champs To Clash Al Madison Square Garden NEW YORK, Dec. 10. (UP)— The curtain come.s down, with a bang tomorrow night on Madison oquure Garden's year of boxing with two hard-hitting c h a m ]> i o n .s, both crowned in 19-10, matching' their dynamite before, a near-capacity thron'g in iiie houw; that Rk-knrd built. ' Anything can happen jn this grand finale or big-time fLsUcul'l's when Frit/to Zivic of Pittsburgh, king of the world's welterweights.' squares off against Lew Jenkins ol Texas, the lightweight ruler, in a 10-roxmd, non-title bout. However, there i.s a tradition that a good big mnn can always beat a good little, man. Hence. Xivii-. the 147-pound boss, i.s the 9-5 lu- vorite to beat smaller Jenkins, Lop man of the 135-pounders. Despite this tradition, priec- maker Eddie Borclen says iho wagering Is unusually heavy, with Jenkins receiving plenty of backing because of his devastating punch. The lightweight king is the hardest hitter, pound for pound, in any division. Zivic Ls favored because most experts figure that Texas Lew will be too busy trying to evade a barrage of angry leather to do much punching himself. They believe Pittsburgh Fritzie has the style lo ruin the skinny, hollow-eyed lad from the oil and eaUle >country. Zivic won the boxing- world's admiration on Oct. 4 when he wrested the 147-pound crown from the I great Henry Armstrong. JHe Mad j the "brown buzz-saw" on the floor ' at^ the final bel! that night. This same Armstrong had given Jenkins a terrific trouncing less than three months previously. The experts figure Lew may be equally helpless against Zivic, who is stronger and rougher than Armstrong. Fritzie has agreed to come in weighing: not more than 143 pounds, which will give him a weight advantage of about eight and one-half pounds over the lightweight king. This weight advantage, however, is not considered nearly as important ns Fritzie's blacksmith arms and shoulders, which enable him to man-handle most opponents, p-.Yling their heads into uppercuts. jolting them with elbows, spinning them and "moid- •ering" their bodies in clinches. Although Jenkins is one of Lh'e most dangerous men in the ring while fighting at long range, he is not very proficient at close quarters, as he demonstrated in his bouts with Armstrong and another negro welterweight, Bob Mont- Dane Still Durable find all.the ..necessary, equipment. A coach admits u"definite weakness when he scouts, a'rival. He admits that he hasn't enough knowledge to figure out a defense or offense on the spur of the moment, and that to combat anything with an clement of surprise in it he must be given week.s of quiei thought and practice. And we refer to coaches as geniuses. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1940 Octogenarian- Ukes -Two-Step OSTERVTLLE, IVpiss.

Phone 511 BV IIARKY GKAYSOK NK.l Service Sports Editor For more than 100 years New Orleans has been famous as the Carnival City with its gay Mardi Gras . . . street masking and pageantry. More recently, however. New Orleans has become beter known at the site of an annual New Year's Day football game and mid-winter sports carnival. Ask anyone—east, north, middle west, .southwest and far west—with what activity he associates the city beside the Mississippi, and invariably he'll say the Sugar Bowl, Two outst-anding engagements — between Texas Christian ^and Carnegie Tech in 1939 nnd Texas A. & M. nnd TulaJie in '-iO—focussed the eyes of the nation on New Orleans. This trip it has grabbed oft' another master attraction in a north versus south meeting which brings o;:t Boston College and Tennessee. This game generally is considered the most attractive of the half dozen bowl battles — Rose. Sugar, Cotton, Orange. Sun and Pineapple,' the latter in Honolulu, a.s the name suggests. No other bowl boasts unbeaten and untied teams. Tennessee, undisputed champion of Dixie and generally regarded as one of the greatest clubs in the land, amassed more than 300 points in 10 appointments. Boston College piled up 320 in 11. Tlie Sugar Bowl game has enjoyed tremendous growth. Tulane repulsed Temple before 23.000 in the first game in '34. There were 73.000 on hand a year ago when John Kimbrough 'and the Texas Aggies edged Tulane. A capacity crowd of 75.000 is assured this time, with hundreds of checks and thousands of dollars from nearly every city In the country More than 40.000 invade the city for the Football show and other Sugar Bowl events. Merchants, hotel nnd restaurant men, barkeeps and others who benefit directly from the influx say the Sugar Bowl program leaves more money than the Mardi Gras. The Sugar Bowl sports festival is unrivaled. Young men compete in nearly every sport during the one week midwinter carnival. They run and: jump, row and sail, box, swat tennis balls and clash on the basketball court. Day and night the contests go on until the climax is reached in the great football game. LOS ANGELES, Dec. IS. , _ ,_ From Palo Alto comes the sad news that Clark Shaughnessy has buried his face in his fat coaching contract and is crying because he has scant scouting information on Nebraska. From Lincoln comes the distressing word that Biff Jones can scarcely hold the shears steady to clip hLs coupons for sobbins 'over his lack of facts on the Stanford style of football play. It makes a tragic picture, doesn't it? Two big, .strong, silent men all broken up because they haven't had access to information that, rightfully doesn't belong to them.' I'm as tender-hearted as the next fellow, but I say great, fine, hurrah, huzzah, and let Jones and Shaughnessy suffer and suffer, and suffer and Stanford and Nebraska play for the Rose Bowl victory •starting- strictly from scratch. Come to think 01 it. who ever started the business of football scouting? I don't know, but my guess is that it was begun by a coach who wasn't quite sure of himself and his ability to cope with any play that wasn't right there in the book on how to play football. Come to think of it still further, why should there be any scouting? In my book it's accepted cheating —a sort of wholesale legalized peeping torn business. There have been attempts among coaches to abolish the business of scouting, but they died as quick deaths as if they had been hit in the head by a two-headed cobra. I don't know the reason for the failure of this sensible legislation unless U be the fact that" the coaches didn't trust one another—and for n good reason. Football would bo a much bolter if there were no Vision experts say the human eye is 30 times more alert than the nose; 10 times more alert than the ear.

A meetin"°- between two clubs who. knew nothing about one another, would make lor spectacular performances. And Uiat w why the game is played «n i it? isn't the No. i reason^' footballs existence the money that w paid in by the customer? 1 thmk it is, not because I am cynical but because I have never'seen a decent game of football played m a stadium where there was no admission charge. And as long as you're playing- with not one eye but two eyes, on the customer, why not give him the best? why not let the boys come out and have at one another without benefit of information concerning the nlavs to be run? But that isn't what the freight ' '" payer gets. Far from it. The onlv 1 * reason Nebraska and Stanford haven't scouted one another down to the wisdom teeth of the third string halfbacks is that they didn't know they were going to tie up in the Rose Bowl until the season was over. Had they known in advance their spies would have been there with notebooks, carbon pa per, indelible pencils Seger ELLIS AND HIS ORCHESTRA , FEATURING IRENE TAYLOR Former Paul Whiienum and Glen Gray ^ Vccal Artist ADVANCE ADMISSION $*>.50 AT DOOR $3.00 ^ t •^ < <$«?
