UP). The Detroit Lions put a stopper on highcoring John Klmbrough Wednesday night, but two of his former Texaa AIM mates Bill Conatser and Bill Dawson, produced the payoff punch that gave the Western Army all-stars a 12 to 0 victory and 2 to 1 edge In their charity series with National football league clubs.

Eakin faded to the right behind hla own 48 and then whirled and pitched a perfect pass to Conatser, who caught the ball on Detroit's 15 and outran the secondary de fense. That was the break In the game the soldiers wanted, and they took full advantage of its strategical value the rest of the way. Major Wallace Wade's soldiers entered the game as slight favor ites after whipping the Chicago Cardinals at Denver Sunday. The Army previously had lost to the Washington Redklna at Los An geles.

Eastern collegiate football goes to the customers this fall, due to gasoline and rubber rationing, with Fordham and Pennsylvania loom ing as the top teams in the section. Schedule makers, to accommo date ticket purchasers with over used ration books have moved most of the traditional games from outlying stadiums to easily-accessible sites in New York, Philadelphia, Buffalo and Balti more. Penn, favored to win the Ivy league for the third year in a row, and Fordham, battling for another bowl bid, were early choices to lead the east with most of the other teams stricken by lack of able reserves. Pittsburgh, reported to be shaking off its de-emphasis program, Boston college, Army and Cornell were the chief dark horses along the Atlantic seaboard.

He gets 'em set, tells, 'em to start working and follows with the sharp cry: "Dig, dig, dig, dig!" There follows a recharging of the lungs, then: "Eyes up, eyes up!" Rewards With Praise. Holms gets a lot of work out of his charges in an afternoon, and never neglects to reward a good Job with praise, With the husky . crew he's working . with, led- by Tackles Vic Schleich, Joe Byler, Bob Mo-Nutt; Guards Herb von Goets, Wayne etiaaahan and others, Holm Hopes that hla line will be about aa tough and mean as any in the Big Six.

The performance of Norman Standlee, Army's (Eastern squad) big fullback, against Steve Owen's New York Giants on Saturday, will carry double interest. On the west era squad MaJ.

The 238 pound ball carrier from Stanford and the Chlcucn r is rated by many insider on a par with Bronko Nagurski. He is not only big but extremely fast, a tough man to surround and bring down in the open. Clark Shaughnessy, hla Stan-ford coach, rates Standlee aa the greatest rmiDack m history on his top performances; He is the man who haa Big Steve Owen fighting off nightmares. Steve haa a strong Giant team, but so haa Bob Ney-land on the Army side. AFTER ALL THREE It might be stated here that Colonel Neyland, bringing - his stout Army squad in from New Havenf is out after all three games against the professionals. But hla main attention at this spot la focusaed entirely on the Giants this coming Saturday. With the various thrllla promised most of the afternoon, this game ahould be a sellout, even againat powerful opposition from other sporting fields. There is a keen percentage race on between the Western and Eastern Army squads, not overlooking the fact that Colonel Neyland and Major Wade have been hot rivals in the south for many years where Duke and Tennessee were nearly always up among the leaders. IN FULL SWING ' Football is now In full swing. By two weeks from Saturday Pennsylvania, Harvard, Michigan and other big colleges will be testing out various naval cadet uniti who introduce a new football feature. ' And there is still tremendous interest left in the college program. The earlier belief that college football would be at low ebb has now changed. There will be Just as many strong squads this season as any past campaign has known. ( Buckeyes slow grid practice; ?-w fear staleness CHICAGO. UP). Paul K. Brown, the former Massillon (O.) high school football coaoh who guided Ohio State's Buckeyes to a second place tie in his Western conference debut, is starting his second season on the cautious side. Where other Big Ten champs are beginning to speed up practice, the latest word from Columbus has Coach Brown calling Jor a "slow down." I It seems hit enthusiastic grid-ders even were taking to condi-tloaing wertouU with. alarming zest. So Brown ordered the pace slowed down, conceding there might be such a thing aa "going stale from overwork," even if the Buckeye practice was Just three days old. Among other Big Ten champs, three came up with scrimmages Wednesday. Purdue's varsity got its first crack at the freshmen and was none too impressive ...

Carquette, the favorite, was run ning the race true to form with Son O Prides and Our Bess e mov ing up but never able to hold their lead. The winner, held back in the pack by Carmlchael for over a mile, exploded as he hit the stretch and roared ' past Bob On, which was beginning to run away with the race, and bet the brown gelding to the wire. Bob On was second and Our Bessie, an early contender, was third, General Boy turned the "Whirl- away type" in the eighth race, behind nearly all the way, he roared across the finish line, barely nosing out Sasnak. A hard drive , to the finish brought victory to Sleep Out in the third, with the nag refusing to follow its name.

U S I U M Cards keep weather-eye open in race Postponements hurt chances BY PAUL 8CHEFFEL8. NEW YORK. (UP). Despite the possibility of poor weather hampering their Inspiring stretch drive to cut. the pace setting ..Brooklyn Dodgers' lead of three games, the St Louis Cardinals still were confident Thursday of returning the National league flag to the west The opening game of the Red-birds' final eastern campaign against the New York Giants was postponed Wednesday because of weather. Now they have decided to keep an . eye on the weather as well as the scoreboard and news of Dodger doings. Fortunately for the Cards, the Giants had an open date and the washed-out contest will be played Thursday. But from this point on in there is a possibility of games being washed out and summarily canceled for the Cards have no more open dates. , - Postponements Hurt Even if an open date developed in the Cards' schedule they would' not be able to play a postponed game, according to league rules, unless all other clubs consented to the plan. It seems unlikely that the Dodgers would agree. Last occurrence of that kind was in 1934 when the Cards had a game washed out at Ebbets Field and the Giants approved a later meeting. The Redblrds won that game and then rocketed on to beat the Giants out of the flag by two games. Yankees, A's Win. In addition to the St Louis-New York game, the Cincinnati-Boston contest and the double-header between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia were postponed in the National league Wednesday. The Washington-Chicago double-header in the American league was also postponed. In the only day game played, Joe Gordon's 18th homer with the bases loaded in the first inning enabled the Yankees to beat the Browns, 8-3. Gordon also hammered out a single, driving in five tallies to help Ernie Bonham register his 19th victory. Phil Marchlldon's no-hit relief pitching gained him his 17th victory as the Athletics beat the Indians, 5-4, In 13 innings Thursday night. It was their last meeting of the season, before only 4,127 spectators.

NEBRASKA STATE fAIR TRACK Kicldng and passing get 1st grooming Tall ends to improve attack BY WALTER E. DOBBINS. Halfback Al Zikmund of Ord blossomed out as a punter Wed nesday afternoon as Coach Glenn Preanell sent; his, Cornhusker charges thru another lengthy drill. The 1 morning workout wai confined to fund amenta Is a n d , gro u p work. Kickers and j passers w e r fi given a chanca to display their, wares, tha Husker staff calling upon five p u n t e r m and seven flip-pers to te at skill. . . . Altho all tha audi vmmo tailbacks ort left halfbacks took a turn booting the leather, Dale Bradley, Roy Long; , and Howie Debus got most of the) attention along with Zikmund and Fullback Walry Hopp. ' Passing a Threat eraaiey, ueous ana Long were likewise included among the passers. Addded to this threesome were' Fred Metheny and Bob Cooper, quarterbacks and Sophomores Dick Thompson and Hopp. v "We didn't score a single touchdown thru the alrlanea last year altho our passing attack clicked fairly well down field," Preanell commented. "We are going to try to remedy that situation." ' Husker passing should be improved for all the throwers except Thompson and .Hopp have had game experience under their belts. Nebraska's ends this season appear to be a better bunch of pass grabbers than the 1941 lot Ends Are Tall. ; Sophomore Vic Clark, for ear.-" ample, stands 6-4; Tall Bert Giss-ler towers above the rest at 6-7; the starting pair of Jack Hazen and Marv Thompson are both over 6 feet while Ed Nyden's height-iaf listed at 6-3. Jerry Kathol is 6-1; Chuck Thorne stands at 6 feet even; Dean Gelwick's height Is 6-2; $hat of BUI Hewitt, 6-2 inches - and Johnny Peters, 6-1. , - Nebraska's offense will differ - only slightly from last year altho Head Coach Glenn Preanell no doubt has a few tricks-up his ' sleeve. With veteran quarterbacks in Metheny and Cooper, the Husker staff feels that game conduct aa pertaining to strategy will be in capable hands. v . The Huskers appear to be fairly well balanced except for lack of experience at center and fullback. Bob McNutt should help tha tackle situation mightily and-if Chuck Wright and Dwayne Do-meier come thru along with soma of the Other sophomores, there" will ' be few worries at that position. - Run Obstacle Course. Presnell has been working hla men hard, winding up each-work out with a run thru the obstacle course. It is usually a tired bunch of boys when time is called each afternoon. . ..v.. Double dally workouts will con tinue at least. until school starts. "Iowa U.- started a week earlier than we did and they will have a game under their belts before' we meet them," . Presnell com mented. "That is a big advantage and we will have to work hard to get In shape and have our plays clicking and our defenses set by Sept 26." t rro t 9 .. v . ? nS si?
