A. put up a gallant fight gainst Fork Union's ' bigger and better-manned eleven lor three ouarters at Fort Defiance yester day, but succumbed In the final period, as the visitors- exploded with three, touchdowns ana won the game twenty-seven to nothing After Fork Union had scored oh a sustained march of seventy- eight - yards in the first Quarter, Augusta battled them on even terms j until the fourth quarter opened. Actually, Augusta naa sugnuy me better of the argument for the first three periods, outgaining the visitors with Halfback Steve Vidnovic tearing off large chunks of yard age, and held the visitors twice fn side the twenty-yard line. Pass Interception In the fourth quarter, however. It was a different story. On the , first play of the period, Glisson intercepted one of Vldnovic's passes and dashed sixty yards for a touch down, and the Blue and White tired rapidly after that, and the rout was on. About the1 middle of the period, Fork Union scored again on a thirty-yard pass, but the play was called back. Then, two minutes before the end of the game they tallied two quick scores, the last just nine seconds before the game was over. Mintz engineered both of them with passes, tossing to Ventura for the first on a . play that covered fifty-seven yards, and the second to Roberts for thirteen. Aerials Give Edge The closeness of play the first three quarters Is shown . by the statistics which saw each team make nine first downs, and Fork Union gaining 163 yards rushing to Augusta's 153 for the game. Fork Uniqn had a big edge in passing, gainhfg. 125 yards through the air to Augusta's thirty-four.... Of the 125, 10a of them came In the final period. The summary: -Pes. AefusU Fork Union LE.

INDIANSBOW TO NC STATE, SC0RE13T00 Williamsburg, Nov. 29 MP) William and Mary's hopes of sharing Southern conference football championship honors with Duke were blasted by a keyed-up North Carolina State club 13 to 0 here today before 6,000 spectators. State clicked In the air In the second period with Art Faircloth, 190-pound sophomore from Washington, D. C, doing the throwing, and the Wolfpack soared from mldfleld to a touchdown. Carl Fitchett, rookie reserve end, took the payoff aerial after . the ball had been planted on the William and Mary one foot line. Fitchett, subbing -for-Marion-Etilwell, placed kicked the extra point. The Wolfpack, never giving the Indians a chance to get well into the ball game, paraded sixty yards late in the fourth quarter for their second touchdown. Dobie Nelson, 200-pound soph fullback, rammed over from . the one. - Fitchetfs placement failed but it wasn't needed with the final whistle . due in two minutes.. . First Loop Loss William and Mary, whose first defeat in the loop today gave Duke's undefeated Blue Devils undisputed claim on the conference crown, made only one scoring bid. That came In the first period after Harlie Masters, on a reverse from Harvey Johnson, big Indian fullback, raced 42 yards to State's 13. Johnson and Masters got three in two tries at the line and Jackie Freeman's pjvys over the goal line failed. Johnson, standing on toe 18, was wide to his left on a field goal attempt from placement. State had twice as many first downs 14 to 7 but the rushing yardage, thanks to Master's jaunt, was about even, being 103 to 102. It was State's, passing which kept William and Mary in hot water. The Wolfpack completed 13 of 18 for 99. The lineup: " NC. State - , m. LE Stllwell .... Vandeweghe LT Jones Bass LG Barr Ramsey C Carter Warrington R.G Caton Goodlow RT Gould .

Late September iBy OLD TIMER In this wildlife column, we have frequently discussed the breeding habit of the grey squirrel. We have found two-weeks-old young coming out of the den as late as Oct. 4. Last Sept. 20- we reported seeing three brand new ones. The hunting season opened Sept. 1. North Carolina, well towards warmer weather, is conducting an Interesting experiment through its conservation commlsion. This from its wildlife mouthpiece: Young Squirrels "Nine squirrel nests with a total of twenty-twO baby squirrels-were visited on Sept. 22, 1941, by Mr. C. I. Bunn, a game and fish division biologist, working under the Pittman-Robertson federal aid to- wildlife restoration program. The game division has frequently received reports from sportsmen indicating that all is not well with September squirrel shooting and this evidence supports their contention. ' "In order to secure definite evidence about the breeding habits of squirrels the division in cooper ation with the U. S. fish and wildlife service placed fifty boxes suitable for squirrels to nest In at various heights In an oak-hickory forest on a wildlife sanctuary npar Raleigh, North Carolina. The boxes were constructed with hing ed tops in order that they might be inspected at regular intervals. "Within a few days after the boxes were erected the squirrels started using them and this use has continued although, at varying degrees until the present time. As many as 86 per cent of the boxes have been in use at one time. This was during the winter of 1941. ' It has been observed that many of the squirrels move out into leaf nests during the "extremely hot weather. 'Five of the nests visited on Sept. 22, .1941 contained three young squirrels, three contained two young, and one nest contain ed only one baby squirrel. All three of the young in one nest were dead, indicating that some thing had happened to the mother squirrel. Since all of the liv ing squirrels had their eyes open it was evident that they were at least thirty-seven days old as this is the number of days baby squirrels remain blind after birth, according to the great naturalist, Ernest Thompson Seton. None of the nest box occupanls were able to get about and care for themselves. One old squirrel was driven from each of seven boxes. The squirrel study is one phase of the Pittman-Robertson farm game research project under Mr. J W. Kistler." Bowl Invitation Is Accepted by Georgia Eleven Miami, Flan, Nov. 2&UPy Georgia will represent the South in the Orange Bowl football game New Year's day. An opponent probably will be named Monday, the schedule committee announced. Committeemen said the choice lies among Missouri, Duquesne, Texas, Fordham, and Perm State. An invitation was extended to Georgia, and was accepted, im mediately after the Bulldogs whipped Georgia Tech today, 21 to 0, to conclude a 6eason of eight victories against one tie and one defeat. Members of . the committee were jubilant over lining up the sensational Frankie Sinkwich and his mates. , 0 Grid Results By The Associated Press .; East. Navy 14, Army 6.

APPETITE VNHEM Jpp OUT FOR THE MOOUCVW I arK GZyZ: thank to eo.hippel, ROOSEVELT MAY RUSH TO (Continued from Page 1) - " year a Thanksgiving' more like an American thanksgiving. That is something to dream about,' perhaps. In days like these, our Thanks giving next year may remind us of a peaceful past; it "is always possible that our boys in the mili tary and naval academies may be fighting for the defense of these American instltationsof ours.'" . The President, who twice post poned trips to Warm Springs, where he had planned to observe Thanksgiving, 6ald he could not held thinking of those things and the dangers overhanging the country while hfc was in Washington contemplating his journey a week and a half ago. And he said he might have to go back tomorrow or the next day, but he did not know. Leading up to his remark that men from the military and naval academies migt be fighting: for de fense to a year, the President-said he had listened to broadcasts of two football games this afternoon, between Georgia and Georgia Tech at Atlanta and the Army and Navy at Philadelphia. "Thev were sreat games, run-in the spirit of peace," he-saUT "And the right kin4 ofnational spirit of peace is necessary for the right conduct oLeither the - Georgia game orThe Army-Navy game. How many other countries in the world could have things like that going on?" So, he went on, he thought Americans had great cause to be thankful that in the-years since 1918 they had been able to hold their gains or carry on health and educational and other programs on a cooperative basis. The Chief Executive spoke informally, without notes. Whether his words about the possibility of fighting were based on seme undisclosed; specific knowledge of events that may be expected in the field of foreign affairs or merely were intended as a generalization and warnings was not readily dis cernable. Some of those who heard him thought the latter might be true, inasmuch as Mr. Roosevelt has said over and other that Americans always stood ready to fight for the preservation "of their freedom and their rights. . . . For the most part, Mr. Roosevelt spoke reminiscently about the Warm Springs foundation which he established, or of his hopes for its fixtures. He said he hoped the institution never would grow up and become of age, because to be successful it must make progress in the future as.it has in the past thirteen or fourteen years. Yet every time he comes back, the President sadl, he finds many new things here so 'many this time that he will be unable to see them all in the few days he expects to remain. "At Head Table Mr. Roosevelt sat at the head of the table-.with four other trustees of the foundation and some of the younger patients. There had been a brief bit of professional entertainment and an amateur skit by several of the patients who "kidded" the foundation staff and themselves to the obvious enjoyment or the President. The Chief Executive was intro- duced by Basil O'Connor, his former law partner and the president of the foundation, who pronounced the occasion momentous and unique in the nation's history. "Never," he said, "has a Thanks-giving fallen on a Saturday." Some THEV niw bis?i.r4 WERE ENjI T-ri A WIU. WASHINGTON i I l I u r TIME Celtics Want Game Here on January 2nd In the waning period of a hectic football season, and almost before any of the city's and county's good basketball ' teams opens practice, word comes 'from the Original Celtics, independent world's basketball champions, that they would like to play in Staunton on Jan. 2, 1942. Ori this Celtic team are such players as Dave Banks, Nat Hick-ey, Bobby McDermott, Paul Birchi, John Pelkington, Edward Milko-vk-hr and Bo. Johnson. All are world-famous court stars. Players and fans who know anything about basketball, are familiar with the great prowess of these men. Any basketball team in Staunton, Waynesboro, or the county, which would like to play the Celtics on Jan. 2, is asked to communicate with the sports editor of The Staunton Leader Papers. Details and arrangements suggested by the Celtics will be given to responsible officials of any such team or teams. : o Salem Baseball Team Sold to Radke, Norment Salem, ' Nov. 29 (AV-The Salem baseball team, the property of the Ryan family since the team, was Installed in 1939, . today was sold to S. F. Radke and W. E. Norment, two Roanoke men. The deal had been approved by Judge W. G. Bramham, commissioner of minor league baseball, before it was announced. Radke. who ran the oncessions for the club last summer and who made the . announcement tonight, said that he would take over, the auues or ousiness manager. Joe Ryan, who handled the club for his father. Ray. who recentlv re signed as president of the Virginia league, will accompany Radke ana vernon Mackle, the club's field manager last summer, to the minor league meetlncr in . Jackson ville next week. ; Mackle is expected to be kept as pilot of the Friends, Radke stated. "We have not yet come to terms with Mackle but we hope to," he stated. , , people, he asserted, speak of the President as a great statesman, or a master of international affairs, or a great idealist, or a great humanitarian. But always, O'Connor added, he will be known for "the work he started ; and inspired at this spot." "He has been an inspiration by his own example to others," he said "to overcome any" handicap of any nature." After a good natured argument with O'Connor whether he should speak while standing or while seated in a chair, Mr. Roosevelt rose and remarked that O'Connor gave him ideas and "I need 'em." The President said Jocularly that two or three years ago he had discovered he was particularly fond of Turkey and we started two Thanksgivings." . "This year we take another step,", he said, "and I dont know how many we ought to have next year. I'm open to suggestions." Following the huge turkey dinner, the program began with the singing of the National Anthem, and then all the 300 patients, friends and relatives who were able rose again and sang especially for Mr. Roosevelt: "Hearty welcome to you," to the tune of "Happy Birthday to you ." That's USED TO FlfiWT WHU TOE KIDS TOGETHER -AS CHILDREM DO.' UNCLE CHARuy ALWS Dy JIMMY HATLO MIDDIES ROUT CADET ELEVEN Municipal Stadium, Philadelphia, Nov. 29VP) The man-power which had sent Navy into action as pronounced favorite over Army today paid off in the second half .- Outcharged, outfought and out-ecored by a scrapping, snapping Cadet eleven for the first two quarters, the Middies came back fresh at the start of the third period and never even let Army get its hands on the ball until they had driven to two touchdowns.. That made the final score Navy 14, Army 6, for Navy's third straight triumph in this classic series and seventeenth in the forty-two games that have been played. There was no stopping the Middies In that third quarter, and there was no getting by, through or over, them for the balance of the half. Army still was in there trying1, but it made only one 6erious threat, a drive to first down on the Middie 17 that ended abruptly when Bill Buisk intercepted an Army pass two plays later. o Bridgewater's Cross-Country Team Triumphs Washington, Nov. 29.
