6. OP) On the greensward of the Lakeside Golf club tomorrow. Bing Crosby and Bob Horje, actors, will cross masnles to determine which will be kicked downstairs in the screen world. The loser of the match, the opponents have wagered, must work as an extra, without pay, in the winner's next picture. Crosby, champion of the Lakeside club, is the favorite.

Hope, a former Broadway stage actor, is new to the movies. Little Is known here of his golfing prowess. A distinctly esthetic note to the battle will be furnished by Mary Carlisle and Shirley Ross, motion picture actresses. They are going to caddy. Crosby is a talented rolf club swinger so good that John Montague, the until-recently mysterious golf wizard once had a hard time downing him.

Montague, used a baseball bat. shovel and rake as weapons. riddled by injuries, the New York University football team's vaunted offense clicked spasmodically to defeat Lehigh University, 13 to 0, at the Yankee Stadium before 11,000 spectators today. A 56-yard pass by its Ace flmger, Ber-nie Bloom, gave New York its first touchodwn five nlays after the game opened. Harry Shorten, diminutive halfback, pulled the pass out of the air and went 20 yards more for the touch down.

Neither team showed to advantage with its running attack. The lines shaped up on even terms and were atie to repulse whatever the other backfleld had to offer on the ground. Lenicli turned in Its best Dertorm- ance of the game in a first period rugfiL at tne n. y. u.

goal. John Beriontj left halfback, almost duplicated Bloom's pass when he connected for 40 yards to Jack Hoppock, the right end. Hoppock reached N. Y. 16-yard line.

Norman Aver and Robert Berg on a series of plunges reached the New York 1-foot line where N. Y. U. took the ball on downs. Lehigh's aerial barrage of the second quarter gained nothing, while N.

Y. which held the ball infrequently was unable to get anywhere with its running attack. In the third period Ed Williams, N. Y. giant Ne-ero fullback, skirted right end for 25 yards to score the second touchdown of the game.

New York was on the defense throughout most of the game Lehigh vas guilty of holding twice in succession late in the third quarter. The penalties set Lehigh back on its 8-vard line and a poor kick bv Berg gave N. Y. U. the ball on the 38-yard line.

A pass. Bloom to Milton Miller, brought the ball to the 24-yard line from where Williams scored. Three interceptions marked the closing quarter when each team went into the air on almost every down. N. Y.

Against Leopards BY GREGORY HEWLETT An 82-yard touchdown run by Biil "Big Boy" Tranavitch marred Lafay ette'a perfect record lor the first time yasterday but the Maroon came back to score twice itself to down Rutgers 13 to 8, and continue Its all-conquering march through Eastern football teams Tom Kearns, swivel-hipped halfback from Orange. N. George Lentz, 190-pound Phlladelphian, and Harold Simmons, a flashy end from Harrts-burg, were the heroes for Lafayette in a game that kept a near capacity tnrong or on edge irom begin Ding to end.

The victory, the Maroon's sixth straight of this great comeback sea son. was the twentieth over the Scar let since these two old rivals began hostilities in 1882. Rutgers has on ten games including the last four prior to loaay ana one was tied. The triumph too, practically assured Lafayette of "The Middle Three" title as Rutgers trounced the third member or the triumvirate. Lehigh, 34 to 0, last week.

Today's set-back was she second or the year for the Scarle Princeton having beaten the New Jer sey team. The game was only a few minutes old when Tranavitch, the Nations highest scorer when last Saturday's fireworks were over, picked a Kearns pass out of the air on his own 18-yard line and galloped unmolested the intervening 83 yards to the goal line, Norberfc Weldon, Lafayette end, blocked his placement try for extra point. Hardly had the spectators settled down in their seats before Kearns. talcing the ball in punt formation, cut through the line, received perfect blocking support, and sprinted 63 yards ior Laiayettes first touchdown Lentz's kick was wide and the deadlock that resulted stayed that way until the third period. Late in the third, the Maroon took the ball after a punt exchange on Rutgers' 39-yard mark and moved without a break to the goal line.

This time it was the passing combination of Lents to Simmons that covered the ground, one forward carrying 20 yards and another the final nine yards for tne score, faxing a place kick. Bob Sweeney, substitute back, then tossed another forward to Simmons for the extra point. Each team threatened once more, Rutgers going to Lafayette's 5-yard mark In the second before losing the ball on downs and the Maroon carrying to Rutgers' 5 in the final period. The Scarlet held for downs there as the final whistle ended the game. Lineups: Foi.

The Lehigh team completely out- p'ayed the Leonard Cubs thorughout the first half and threatened to score several times In the second period.

Penn State Tops Penn Quakers Nittany Lions Go Into Air to Tally Their Lone Touchdown By GEORGE A. SCOTT PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 6. Penn State took to the air today to score a 7 to 0 victory over Pennsyl vania as Franklin Field, its first triumph over the Quakers in eigt-t years. A crowd of 48,000, drawn by a crisp autumn day and the traditional rivalry between the teams, saw the nittany Liens catch Penn unware with Harrison's quick kick In the second quarter to set the stage for the game only touchdown.

The punt roJed dead on the Penn 11 and Dresner's return kick was run back by Harrison to the Penn 38. Harrison lost two yards on the first play, but on the next, Wendell (Rabbit) Wear hurled a 23 -yard pass to Harrison In the Penn 17. The two changed roles on the next play. Wear catching Harrison's forward for the score. Pollock added the extra point from placement.

Thereafter, the teams fought on fairly even terms. rumbles were frequent and more than once turned the tide of battle against the offending team. Penn recovered only tnree oi its six rumbles while State recovered three of its four. The Lions stopped a Penn drive on their eleven yard line in the first quarter while State drove to Penn seven before surrendering the bail as the half ended. Penn marched deen into the Lions' territory on at least three occasions In the second half but each time were repulsed.

Dresners rumble of a kick by icices. which was recovered by Barantovlch on the Lions' 38 cost the Quakers their last scoring chance and the Lions im mediately marched to Penn's 25 as th3 game ended. Penn led In first downs, seven to five, and in net yards gained rushing witn 107 to 71. Albright Wins Over LaSalle READING, Nov. 6.

UP) A more resourceful Albright football machine overcame the scrappy defense of hapless LaSalle college nere to-iay as two breaks were converted into touchdowns for the Lions' fifth victory of the 1937 season, 13-0, with their goal line still unmolested. Thanks to the alertness of Eddie Zelonis, dynamic little guard, from Tamaqua, Coach Lone Star Kietz's gridders averted a scoreless stalemate as the explorers battled them to a standstill during the major portion savagely-fought battle before more than 5,000 spectators. Twice Zelonis gathered in a loose ball to play the heroic role in Albright's scoring. His recovery of Wil liams' fumble in the first two minutes of play put Capt. Dick Riffle in position to wing a touchdown lateral pass to Tony Troisi.

This gave the Lions a 6-0 lead they had to travel the limit to preserve until the closing three minutes when Zelonis seized another free ball and scampered across the goal line. Albright's undefeated team put one sustained march of 52 yards in the third period but bogged down on La-Salle's 15-yard line. LaSille's lone threat came in the fourth quarter when good kicking put them on the 17 -yard ribbon. At this stage. Riffle Intercepted a pass and dashed 32 yards.

Riffle, as usual, was the Individual luminary, he gained more than the entire LaSalle team with 85 yards to his credit on running plays. The Lions notched eight first downs to La-Salle's four and rushed the ball 143 yards against 80 for the opposition. Moose Disend's smashing defensive plav at tackle played havoc with the explorers. Dartmouth Is 33 to 9 Victor Over Princeton Green Indians, Bitten by Rose Bowl Bug, Stampede Tigers PRINCETON. N.

Nov. 1. OP) Dartmouth's slick running Green Indians, already bitten by the Rose Bowl bug, convinced their followers that they are one of the nations topmost teams by slamming a demoralized Princeton eleven around 33 to 9, in a grand offensive display before 38,000 in Palmer stadium today. It wasn't until the alert Princetons had taken ruvantage of a pair of breaks to score a touchdown and a field goal that the bouncing boys from New Hempshire rolled up their sleeves and started taking the Tigers apart. Sixty yards they went for their first touchdown Just before the half, a long pass.

Hollingsworth to Davis eating up the last 23. They tore down the green turf 80 yards, then 76 yards for two more in the third period. Their fourth climaxed a parade of 50 yards early in the final heat, and Colby Howe, a slippery substitute, reeled oft a punt return of 70 yards to setup the last one. Slight doubt remained In the mind of any of the coon-skinned spectators that Dartmouth has a terrific running attack once Bill Hutchinson and Bob MacLeod start their dipping and darting. They were a touchdown threat every time they handled the ball and but for tne grand DacKing-up or the porous Princeton line by -Jack White the score would have mounted much higher.

Once they had scored their first touchdown, the Indians scorned to pass. Whenever they got the ball, they turned on the power and away they went. Their attack was sufficiently deceptive to toss MacLeod, Hutchin son, Hoilingrworth, Howe and the other fire crackers into the open time after time, and their blocking was something to see. Some of their spin ners and fasa reverses made the Ti ger defense men look positively silly. In an.

the Indians rolled up 339 yards with their running Rttack. to Princeton's 52, and the first down count was 17 to 3. Princeton com piled all of its first downs at the very outset of the game, when chey went 24 yards for a score after blocking an Indian punt. Bill Lynch sneaked across the goal line without being touched on a daffy play that Dartmouth never saw. Lynch piled on three more points In the second q'wrter with a beauty of a drop kick from the 24 yard line after the nervous Dartmouths had fumbled.

Northampton Triangles Play at Easton Today Easton Triangles have an important game scheduled for this afternoon when they entertain the strong Northampton Triangles in a game on the Easton field. 22nd and Northampton Wilson Borough. The Northampton Eleven are Invading Easton with a record of seven straight triumphs and have high hopes of adding the Eastonians to then-list of victims. The game is scheduled to get started at 2:30 o'clock and a large crowd is expected. hole and plenty of blocking by Misero and Thomas and he attained Allentown's 25-yard line before he was thrown.

He tried lo get away again, this time with no success and then Misero made a three yard gain. Pulling a quarterback meak on the following play, Mlcero succeeded to carry to the 5-yard line where he was thrown. Thomas tried for the touchdown from here but Allentown's forward wall held and he was heaved for a slight loss, but on the next call, Misero grasped the leather from center and following around his- own left end he scored standing up. On the first try for extra point Easton was off sides and penalized five yards. On the second, the Canaries were off sides, iut Schroeder good his placement and no penalty was necessary.

CANARIES SI AGE ATTACK I.ATK IN THIRD PERIOD Through tb3 third period the competing clubs see-sawed back and forth much as in the first period, although Easton's power continued to sway the Allentown players. Ti start of the fourth period was murh the same, the Rovers battering their way at different times to Allentown's 19 and li yard markers, only to lose) the ball. Allentown pained its first real break when Friedman got away a kick which forced the Rovers back on their own 20. Hager "smashed through tackle for a first dowi on the Easton 37 on the first play after the punt. Keck tried once and Thomas twice to penetrate the Allentown line, but all three assaults were in vain.

Schroeder was called back to punt but before he could get the ball away he was tossed by a wave of Canary and Blue tack-lers, the Allentown team taking the ball on Easton's 36-yard line. Here, Coach Crum made a number of substitutions in an effort to save the day, among them Tony Cerrulli, Allentown's left handed passer Given an opportunity to score, the Canaries started to go to town, and on the first play Cerrulli tossed an eight yard pass to Stout. Reinbold followed up by diving over center for a down on Easton's 26 Then Steinmetz and Pill took turns to gain a first down on the Easton 15. Charging Charlie Steinmets was given the oval on the next play and he wiggled his way through the Easton line, past the backer ups and appeared to be on his way to a touchdown. All that remained between him and the goal line were two players, Misero and Filnzi, and they were standing on the last white marker.

Charlie got up steam and charged. He hit them with all the force of a comet and bowled them both over while he fell Into the end zone) but when he hit, the ball bounded high in the air and landed on the one-yard line where an Easton man recovered. So hard did Steinmetz smack into his would-be tacklers that he knocked them both out cold. Easton then took an intentional safety. Misero being downed behind the goal line to give Allentown two points.

Time was growing short so when Easton booted to its own 45-yard line, Allentown again started to march. A jine buck failed but Steinmetz, going off left tackle broke away for a gain to the Easton 22. The Rovers called time out. When the teams lined up again the game ended before the ball could be spun back from center. Pos.

O. Clapp announced tonight the llth annual national collegiate wrestling championships will be held on the Pennsylvania State college campus next March 25-26. Dr. Clapp, an official of the University of Nebraska physical education department, is chairman of the national collegiate wrestling rules committee. In a game so spectacular and electrifying that for a full minute after the contest had concluded 8000 spectators stood in awe-struck expectation of the next move, Coach J.

Bimey Cram's Allentown High school Canaries went down to a 7 to 2 defeat yesterday afternoon In Coffield Stadium at the hands of Easton High. Completely outplayed offensively and defensively through the first three periods by Coach Elmer Carroll's well-drilled Rovers, the Canaries suddenly found themselves in the waning minutes of the final quarter and made two thrilling assaults on the Easton goal line, the second of which was stopped only by the time-keeper's signal that the game had ended. When this took place Allentown was 'hot" and had driven from the Easton 45 to the Easton 22 on two plays. The clubs were lined up for the third play at the shot of the gun. Easton scored its touchdown in the second period after several previous raps at Allentown's goal line.

On seven plays the Rovers drove from mldfield over the Allentown double bar, Misero sweeping end to hang up the touchdown. The extra point was tallied by Schroeder on a placement. The defeat was the third an Allentown High school team has taken at the hands of an Easton club since Coach J. Bimey Crum took over the reins at the local institution. As in former years it was one of the roughest, toughest, yet cleanest games of the season.

Neither team asked quarter, and neither team gave quarter. So hard did the players hit that opponents were strewn about on almost every play, the wind knocked out of them. Despite this, there was only one major penalty, Easton suffering a 15-yard setback In the third period for holding. AKentown could not penetrate the heavy Easton line, and on the few occasions that a Canary back did get by the llrlfe, he was nailed hard by the Rover secondary. The invaders, on the other hand, tore Allentown's line to shreds the first three periods, Joe Frinzi and Al Misero going for great gains behind excellent Interference.

Kachline played a wonderful game backing up the line, while Belgrade and Schroeder did themselves proud at tackle. So well did Easton follow up on its offensive tactics that the Rovers outgained Allentown 13 first downs to six. The Canary backfleld played a marvelous defensive game. Time after time Easton ball carriers would plough through the Allentown line only to be stopped when a goal line run seemed certain. Eddie Piff.

back man in the diamond defense, made a number of stops. Another Allentown player who scintillated on the defense was Captain Carl Oivler. His most illustrious play of the game came in the third period when he stopped an Easton drive by hitting Frinzi so hard the red and white clad youngster dropped the ball and Givler recovered for Allentown on the Canary 36-yard tripe. RED ROVERS ALMOST SCORE ON THE KICKOFF The game started as spectacularly as it finished. Easton elected to kick off and Schroeders' boot bounded down the field and over the goal line into the end zone.

Two Easton linemen came charging down on Stein-metr, only Canary within reach of the ball, and all three gridmen dove for the oval at once. For a moment it looked as though Easton would have the benefit of either a touchdown or safety, but when the dust cleared it was learned that the ball had rolled out of bounds.
