SIXTEEN 1 EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1955 Dial PA-2-4.600 for a WANT AD Taker Among the country's foremost sports car drivers who will race at Marlboro Raceway Sunday will be two in the ladies' race that should go a long way toward disproving a lol of harsh things said about the [air sex's driving abilities. Expected to continue tlieir lonR-slnndinS, (hough friendly feud for the ladies' trophy, and possibly carry it over to the men in the feature race, are Peg Wyllle and Suzy Dietrich, both accomplished racing drivers, and both always serious • contenders in any sports car event. Their rivalry started at the first Cumberland race three years ago : ' when Suzy held the lead until a spin on the last lap let Peggy ' 'across the Airport finish line first. Almost the same situation developed in the second running, but -v.'thcn at the big event here this '*Vear Suzy managed to push her "^supercharged MG TC across the finish line in the lead. Since that first race there has been a constant give and take in the different events the two have entered, and the all-MG race should give this rivalry a chance for a further match. > Their own contest isn't Hie only feature of the Indies' rac- ,_lng at Marlboro. Both have outdistanced a good many male '^' competitors in past races, and ":".•". bolh are capable of taking hnine the coveted Congrcssion- v al Trophy. It is quite possible that the title of National MG Champ may go to one of the girls in the event.

Tech also em phasized the foot — winding up drills with Dickie Beard, Frank Webster and Barry Frazce boo,! ing field goals under pressure. 'William & Mary went through a full-scale scrimmage with Bill Rush slanding in for injured center Bill Marfizs. VMI concentrated on punt coverage and kickoffs and held signal drill. Kicking drew stress at West Virginia in a light session. • Pass plays and a defensive review featured a dummy scrimmage at Furman. Coach Homer Hobbs singled out the linemen for high praise. Davidson departed for Deland, Fla., without a practice period. Coach Bill Dole 'said his Wildcats, beaten only once Ihis year, will be in near lop condition for Stetson's Hatters. 14 Slarlers Seen For Richest Race CAMDEN, N.

Exciting Life, Peaceful fieatli Sums Career Of Clark Gritfitli WASHINGTON (/P) — Clark Griffith, one of the greatest figures in the history of baseball, died last night at the age of 85. . Summing up.the career of the man he .called "link," Calvin Griffith observed today: "The old man lived an exciting ife nnd he loved every minute of game with Georgia of the Southeastern Conference last Oct. . In the closing minutes two-play- r fights marred the contest, won by Clcmson 26-7. Both- benches vere cleared as substitutes -joined he milling participants and side- spectators for the second short-lived 'fracas. The .Clemson band .played the National Anthem and a dozen policemen quickly broke up the brawl. Wake Forest was fined for providing transportation on the eam's chartered plane for a con- crence official (Weaver 'did not dentify him) after its game with West Virginia at Morganlown last Oct. 1. Weaver yesterday spiked a Durlam, N. C., Morning Herald report that the University of South Caro- ina had been fined for alleged recruiting irregularities. Terming the rumor "a gross injustice," Weaver said "there, is absolutely no truth in or foundation [or the report." •.He had a wonderful life and a ..peaceful death. No man could ask for more." Calvin is now heir-apparent to the Washington Senators, the club of which the elder Griffith had jeen president since 1919.' Few men have had as significant role in the development 'of the lational sport.

And the name stuck through a series of maneuvers and deals that earned the Senators a prominent role, in the American League for many years despite a dearth of big money. A lifelong friend of Mack, now 92 and onetime owner- manager of the Philadelphia All) letics, Griffith had a high place in the hearts of baseball men.
