Utes Present Good Club In Cage Play Indians Travel East to Meet Colorful r Basketball Opponents SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 4 (AP) There's nothing like, atomic power hidden in the University of Utah basketball team this season, but the national collegiate champions of 1944 will head east today on a barnstorming trip with "a good six-foot ball club." That's the word from Coach Vadal Peterson. Peterson, whose protruding jaw bespeaks 'determination, looked over his lightning-like squad of war veterans, then opined: "I've got a good six-foot ball club, but I don't know what will happen when we run into those squads of giants that some schools have collected. "I understand some of the schools we'll meet on our eastern trip have large teams, but my principal fear concerns squads here in the Big Seven conference--Wyoming and Brigham Young universities. They'll average five or six inches taller than my boys." But observers pointed to Utah's scores in practice games as an indication of considerable power Utah trimmed Fort Douglas, Utah 64 to 25; Clearfield, Utah, Nava Depot, 77 to 11, and University o: Idaho, southern branch, 43 to 26 After winning the U. S. title in 1944, Utah sailed through to the Big Seven title last winter withou losing a game, but service calls depleted its ranks and the Indian: lost in the first round of the na tional playoffs. The squad now is built arounc Forward Nick Watts, a former great back from the wars; Guarc Dave Howard, a former marine the team's only skyscraper, Vern Gardner, six-foot, four-incher from Afton, Wya, at center; Mel Atkin son, veteran guard back from th war; Fred Sheffield, former na tional collegiate high jumping champion, who performs well a any position, and Lee Hamblin letterman forward. Ten of the 12 "first stringers are war veterans. TOP SCORER . . . Walt Trojanowski, 23-year-old war veteran, tallied six touchdowns in eight carries, among other things.'compiling 132 points for Connecticut to lead nation's scorers.

Convention Chatter Don't look for any big player deals this week, though you'll-always hear trade talk when a bunch of baseball guys get together.

There were exceptions but such standout vets as Pete Pihos of .Indiana, Bob Evans of Pennsylvania, VIeryll Frost of Dartmouth and Jerry Niles of Iowa more than evened the score. Belief that the ex-servicemen lad learned more thoroughly the lessons of teamwork and. adaptability and the supreme-value of offense was the niain reason for the rosy predictions for · next year. Frost probably was the outstanding comeback example, for he ·was badly burned in a bomber 'crash arid spent 18 months in a hospital for.extensive:skin-grafting. . "If returning servicemen put as much spirit into'their play, as Frost did this season, We'll have .the greatest football in history next year," commented Coach Tuss. McClaughry of Dartmouth. While freshmen have carried on in unexpectedly brilliant' style in the absence of the tested regulars, most of the coaches welcomed home the older harder-hitting vets and thought the freshman rule would ' be reinstated in a year or two. Down Bengals SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 4 (AP Putting on a demonstration of bot raggedness and brilliance, the Uni versity of Utah cagers rang up 43-26 victory over the Bengals of University of Idaho, southern branch, last night before a full gallery in Deseret gymnasium. The Utes, defending champions of the Big Seven conference, built up a 23-7 lead in the first half, while Dave Howard, speedy guard, chalked up nine points. Only little Bob Sherman, Bengal guard, was able ta penetrate the victors' defense. But in the second half the visitors came to life, and in the first six minutes they scored 12 points to Utah's three. Then lanky Vern Gardner, Nick Watts and Melly Atkinson went back into the game and completely shut out any chance the Bengals might have entertained for victory. In a preliminary, the Ute Papooses downed Fort Douglas,. 45 to 38. intend to do anything until he learns how much promoting the big leagues want to do.

Caustic Comment From a National Football leager: "I notice that a congressman is piqued over the return of MicMillin« Thomas in Line for Grid Honor of Year "Bama Dominates Mythical Team ATLANTA; Dec. 4 (AP)--Alabama's Hose bowl-baund eleven placed four players on the Associated Press all-Southeastern conference .team to dominate the selections for 1945.

Miamij played against Bucknell in the first Orange bowl game in 1935 and lost; 26 to 0. Cpach Jack Harding of the Hurricanes announced that a game scheduled with the University of Havana at Havana Saturday night had been .cancelled. He said he would give his squad a two weeks' layoff before resuming practice-for the · New Year's day title. · Ward Leads U. S.

Ward moved in as pace-sette when he pieced together a 1259 on top of a 2443 for a 3702 total fo: ·his first 18 games.

The selection board, made up of sports writers who covered National football league games all season, awarded Waterfield the only unanimous spot on the annual honor team, marking the first time a freshman player has gained the honor. Topping Green Bay's first team trio was Don Hutson, voted an end position for the seventh consecutive season. The first team backfieid represented a complete turnover from last year although two linemen, in addition to Hutson, were placed on the honorary team for the second consecutive year, Tackle Al Wistert of Philadelphia and Guard Riley (Rattlesnake- Math- eon of Cleveland. Washington's Sammy Baugh, winding up his greatest passing season in nine years of pro football, was the second top vote getter, receiving 19 out of a possible 20 first team ballots. Baugh, completing his passes at the phenomenal per- Qentage of .717, was the only Redskin player to land a first team berth and his backfield teammate, Fullback Frank Akins, was the only Washington player to be awarded a second team spot. Completing the first team backfield were Ted Fritsch, Green Bay's stubby, 240-pound fullback, and Steve Van Buren, Philadelphia's Horald Bateman and Harold Welch rolled a doubles team total of 1171 to tie for first place with Maxie ,Kosof and Carl Critchlow, who rolled' 1171.

Well, the war forced Alabama to drop football in 1943, and the 1944 -Sugar Bowl team was molded from 30-odd high school boys who had never seen each other before the . summer of that year.

Twenty representatives from the oop's eight clubs, in addition to league President Clarence (Pants) rlqwland, are here, or were due lourly, for the circuit's regular, huddle today and the conclave of :he National Association of Pro- 'essional Baseball Leagues starting :omorrow. Just how far the coast crew _gets in its bid to join the American and National leagues in the majors remains to be seen. However, Rowland said six of the clubs favored it before he left California for the clambakes here, and the unofficial chatter among the lobby sitters was that most of the rest of the leagues in the national association would give the westerners their blessing. It was pointed out by the quicker-witted baseball "brains" that the national association (the minors) should be only too glad to give the. Coast loop the green light. A third major league would mean another market on which the minor circuits could dispose of their loose and extra ivory at fancy prices. Should the boost get the go- ahead here, it probably would come before the major league meetings in Chicago next week. The situation there undoubtedly would be a horse from a different garage, since the American and National would undoubtedly take a dim view of any attempt to cut in on their exclusive rights. Meanwhile, the trade winds were calm at the convention with ivory hunters and traders talking only in terms of hard, cold cash. Most of the delegates insisted season. The backfield is one of the most versatile in recent years. Baugh was placed at quarterback by the writers with Waterfield moving to halfback. Both are T formation quarterbacks b u t Cleveland's rookie star was considered a better runner. Baugh and Waterfield both are passing wizards, while Van Buren is the top gunning back of the year and Fritsch packs more bruising power in his stride than any man in the National league. Fritsch also is an expert field goal kicker and Waterfield boots points after touchdowns w i t h deadly precision. Baugh is the best "quick kicker" in football while Waterfield also is a booming punter. Steve Pritko of Cleveland barely nosed out Teammate Jim Benton for the other first-team end post while war heroes Tackle Emil Uremovich and Guard Bill Radovich, the heart of Detroit's great defensive line, were awarded first team spots along with Wistert and Matheson. Charley Brock, Green Bay's veteran star, was named to pivote the line which averages 213 pounds. The first-team personnel: End--Don Hutson, Green Bay, 32, 6 feet 1 inch. 180 pounds, eleventh season (Alabama). Tackle--Albert Wistert. Philadelphia, 25, 6 feet 2 inches. 214 pounds, third season (Michigan). Guard--Riley Matheson, Cleveland, 30, 6 feet 3 inches, 205 pounds, seventh season (Texas Mines'). Center--Charley Brock, Green Bay, 29, 6 feet 1 inch, 210 pounds, seventh season (Nebraska). Guard--Gill Hadovich, Detroit, 30, 5 feet 10 inches, 238 pounds, fifth season (Southern California). Tackle--Emil Uremovich, Detroit, 29. six feet 2 inches, 240 pounds, third season (Indiana). End--Steve Pritko. Cleveland, 26. 6 feet 2 inches, 219 pounds, third season (Villanova).

As a result nothing much is expected to happen until the major leagues gather in Chicago next week and perhaps it may be even later than that before they get around to the business of exchanging players. That was the attituds nreced- ing the convention which wlli consider such questions as: An amendment which might make W. G. Bramham, the head of all mino.r leagues, the final ruler in all differences in the minors and take away from Commissioner A. B. (Happy) Chandler the right to throw out all legislation he considered "detrimental to baseball." Much of that cannot be settled, however, until the majors meet next week.
