Playoff Rule Changed For Jai Alai Betting The Florida state racing commission Monday disclosed it had approved a change in the jai alai scoring: rules on certain place and fhnw play-off nituations. Under the former rules when a player ran out in straight points before anyone else had scored in a game, it SEGURA HALTS MULLOY'S DADE WINNING STREAK South American Spots Local Ace First Set Then Wins 3 In Row By KOR(iK G ALLOT . Walking off with a tennis crown seven years In a row is long enough for anybody. At least, that's what Francisco Segura, South American net wizard, must have had on his mind Sunday when he went Into the rwn's singles finals of the Dade county championships at Hen derson park. Using his mighty two-fisted fore hand, Segura shot holes in Gard nar Mulloy's long winning streak and captured a four-set battle which had several hundred wild- eyed spectators almost standing on their heads. Coming back after dropping the opening act, Segura won the match, 4-6, 6-1, 6-. R-fl. No link There was no fluke about it. His fiery forehand, which resembles a jai alai player swinging a cesta, qcoied dazzling placements on the desperately trying Mulloy, who wasn't playing the best tennis of his lif-, but at times flashed some of I he court brilliant which carried him into the national spot light. Segura led 4-3, in the opening set, but Mu'Ioy copped it by running off three consecutive games. The second was a breeze for Segura who dropped only the third game and started a winning streak that carried into the next aet. The hounding South American annexed the last four games of the second set and reeled off the first three in the thud. Later he took a 2 to 1 lead in sets. , The real fireworks came in the fourth when Mulloy staved off one match point and nearly evened up the set score at two all. The first four games were split and then Segura moved ahead 4-2 when BRILLIANT BACKS GIVE BEARS TITLE Luckman And Snyder Pace Chicago Team To 37-9 Victory Over New York Giants By DAVE HOFF CHICAGO, Dec. 22. (yi1) Quarterbacks? The Bears had 'em. If it wasn't Sid Luckman passing, it was Bob Snyder kicking field goals. That's the success story of the two-year-champion Chicago Bears that plus a couple of backs named George McAfee and Norm Standloe. The New York Giants thought Giants the key to victory in the National football league title game was stopping Luckman. But they didn't stop him. Sid laid his passes on the line to set up the touchdowns that counted, and the Giants simply couldn't weather the storm. While the 37 to 9 final score indicates the 1940 champions had an easy time repeating in Sunday's titular tilt, it wasn't quite a breeze. There was, for instance, the time when the clock read minutes gone in the third period, and the score was tied at nine apiece. Boot Three Field GoaU The main reason the Bears were in the running at that stage was Snyder, Luckman's replacement. Bob booted three field goals a feat no player has performed In title play since Jack Manders of the Bears did it in Two of Snyder's field gnats balanced George Franck's first period STATISTICS w Vnrk ( hlrnin Flrnt rfnwnn S 20 Vir1 Kainrd. rimhitiK (nrtt it 207 Forward pf uttrmptrrt 1JV 10 Forward pirns vimp1i"tM '.'t II Yrrt KHtn1 lv forward pr 7H IH2 Yarria Ion I, allemptflrt forward paaaefl ft 12 Forward paaaca lntprrpll by 0 3 Yards aalnrd, runhack of Int. pasaea 0 19 Punting avtrage (fromacrim- mace) 37.7 53 5 x-Total tarda, kirks returned 12 3 Opponents' rum him rrr-overed 1 2 Yards lost by penalties 31 65 x Includes punts and kicknffs.

Washington pro, and Boh Odom, Coral Gables, took .second place with 60. The winners honied the first hole but made the turn one under pur with birdies on the fifth and bov-enth holes. They carded four birdies and five pars on the back nine for their winning margin.

The new rule reads: "In case of ties after a win position has been officially declared, it shall be necessary, in order to determine place and show positions, for the player or team to score the full amount of points except where there still remains five or seven players or teams, all of whom are tied without a point to their credit.

Gardnar won the seventh game but his Ecuador foe held service and rolled on 5-3. Mulloy Rallies Again It was in the next game Segura had Mulloy match point at 40-30, but the Hurricane coach pulled that one out of the fire and also won the next to even the count, S all. After winning the 11th game on his own service, Mulloy dropped the next three games and the match, stinging bullet placements coming off the doubie-barreled forehand of Segura finishing the defending champion. The men's doubles crown went to George Pero and Billy Gillespie who downed Dick McKee and Grant Clark, 6-3, 6-3, 6-4. The women's singles final between Doris Hart and Nellie Sher has been postponed until next Sunday. 4 MIAMI BEACH KENNEL CLUB touchdown run for New York, after Tuffy Leemans had passed to him from the 31-yard line. Snyder's third three-pointer gave the Bears a 9-6 halftime lead, an edge that didn't last long. For Ward Cuff, acclaimed for many years as a field-goal booting champion, laid one between the upr rights early in the third period to tie the score, and the 13,341 spectators no one referred to them as a crowd weren't very sure the Bears had the stuff that won 10 of 11 league games and the West ern division playofr over tne Green Bay Packers. Luckman Gets Going But where Snyder had been doing the work, Luckman stepped in for his share. He knifed a 23-yard aerial to Dick Plasman and a 25-yarder to Johnny Siegal, who wound up on the Giants' eight. Standlee barged over from the three for the touchdown that sent the Bears merrily on their way. Standlee, McAfee and Ray McLean in seven plays covered 66 yards and produced touchdown No. 2, for a 23-9 lead. Luckman swung into action again, throwing 25 yards to McLean to set up the third goal-crossing play, which McAfee executed. For the last touchdown Ken Kavanaugh scooped up a Giant fumble to gallop 42 yards a minute and a half before the game ended.

A. nosing out Florida, 30-27, in a wild scor ing spree that had the fans goggle-eyed at Jacksonville Saturday. The Gators piled up a 20-6 ad vantage early in the game, led 20-13 at the half, saw the Cali- ornians go into a 30-20 advan tage, then stormed back to score seven points and get as far as the U. C. L. A. 30-yard line to ward another touchdown when the final gun got them. While the Gators' won and lost record was a poor one.

It was one of the most spectacular games I ve ever seen. I'm proud of the way the team performed all year with the breaks going against us. The boys did a swell job.

Andy Mathieu of the fly- rod and archery Mathieusi was standing nearby humped over a cigaret, trying to shield a match flame from that stiff northeast wind,' so I asked him the same question. "Y'know," said Andy, "you're al ways telling people about the wonderful catches around here. I think it would be nice for a change, if you'd just use a handful of plain Knglish tomorrow to toll 'cm no body caught anything today. . Huh?"

City Yacht basin, an unidentified member of the Three Hours for Lunch club, said the cruiser Say When (Capt. Bob Ludemann) was the only boat to bring in anything which might be accurately described as fish. I saw the remains of a half-dozen medium- sized amborjack, some dolphin and bonito, and one nice grouper lying where they had been dressed. A party aboard Capt. Bill Part- rea's Floribcl II braved anything but pleasant offshore weather to catch three dolphin, three Arctic bonito, an albacore and a kingfish and shouldn't they have a medal or something?
