FOURTEEN EVENING TIMEF. r "TTMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker •fi Almost 10,000 miles of adhesive tape will be used this season, an average of 13 miles each by the 735 U.S. college football squads, for the prevention and care of injuries, predicts Paul German, editor of the new edition of the Bike Web Coaches and Trainers Handbook. A trainer of a major university team will apply as much as 45 miles of tape, he says. More and more the importance of the college and high school athletic trainer Is being realized. He Is a skilled technician and the team physician and coach are placing greater responsibility in his hands. Coaches and athletic directors look upon his duties as of the utmost importance. The handbook presents the adhesive strapping methods of some of the outstanding athletic trainers of the country, including Fred Peter- Bon of Wyoming University, Duke Wyre of Maryland. Henry Schmidt of Santa Clara, Pinky Newell of Purdue, and Bill Dayton .formerly of Texas A&M now at Odessa, Texas, High School. The suggestions and methods •hown in the handbook are intended to assist in keeping finely conditioned athletes free from .injury and able to withstand the physical strains demanded by competitive athletics. -Trainers are unanimous in the recommendation of the use of adhesive tape for the treatment-of the common athletic injuries, most of which involve sprains or strains. Adhesive, in protective strapping, is in, effect another ligament added to a joint to give it extra strength and protect the Joint against injury. Adhesive tape replaces and substitutes for tissues, preventing aggravation of the injury and allowing the tissue sufficient rest in order to heal. Coachei Slug It Out W. R. Fugitt, executive secretary of. the Board of Appeals of West .Virginia's Secondary Schools Activities Commission, has announced a decision that should be of 'interest to football coaches Roy Lester of Allegany and Bill Hahn of Fort Hill High. Ripley and Spencer High .Schools, two long-time sports : adversaries in the Mo" ntaln State, were ordered to sever athletic relations for three years at * result of a free-for- all which cut short their football game by two minutes. A |75 fine on Spencer and $50 on Ripley were also levied. Spencer has a lot of memories for both of the local mentors. It is Lester's alma mater and it was there that Roy learned to play football under Hahn, a fellow he will be opposing for the third time on Thanksgiving Day. Relations have always been good between these two Cumberland public schools and It is highly unlikely that Roy and Bill will allow the heat of battle to break up such a fine rivalry. ; The free-for-all in the Spencer- Ripley game was featured by a toe-to-toe slugging match between the opposing mentors. : According to testimony, Ripley had the' ball late in the game. However, at the snap of the ball, seven Ripley players took out after a Spencer player and pummelled him to the ground. ' The Ripley quarterback, virtually unprotected, .was then smothered by Spencer players. Players from both benches, as well as spectators in the stands, poured onto the field and numerous fights erupted. Spencer's 220-pound, coach, Joe Barkich, a former West Virginia University tackle, and Ripley coach Don Deem reportedly were in the middle of the fighting, although Deem was outweighed by some 50 . pounds. Order was finally restored, but the final two minutes of the game were suspended by the three offi cials. Sports Keg Residue If Maryland's undefeated football team were playing LSU at Baton Rouge tomorrow instead of College Park, the game would attract a crowd of 68,000 . . . But with Navy battling Duke at nearby Baltimore and horse racing scheduled at Laurel on the same afternoon, plus the fact that George Washington and West Virginia arc expected to play before a large turnout tonight at Griffith Stadium, the College Park attraction will find probably no more than 35,000, if that many, in the stands .'. . . Coach Jim Tatum said because it is a known fact that the Terps don't draw too well at home, he has a difficult time land- Ing "big name" schools . . . The Maryland mentor also says recruiting is much easier for the Terps than it was during his first several years at College Park . . . !"6f course,. we can't compete for a boy with Notre-Dame," he admitted, "but we're doing all right otherwise," I.. Incidentally, West Virginia'* seventh-ranked Mountaineers Insisted on working out at Grififth Stadium last night under the lights and the bill for that little m of forethought will come to jibout $400 just for the power * , "• (Contirtijeil oft Page 15) Allegany, Elkins In Battle Of VnbeatensToni Big Turnout Anticipated For Contest At Stadium RECORDS OF TEAMS 32-Beall 14-Hagerstown 18-Keyscr 26-M.

Tied 1 If Roy Lester ordered his Allegany High football players to read a book, then "review" it with their actions on the gridiron, he would undoubtedly pick Rudyard Kipling's "Lives of the Bengal Lan- cerst" There isn't anything coach Lester would enjoy more at this stage of the campaign • than to see his Campers emulate Bengal Lancers when they go against the Tigers of Elkins High School tonight at Fort Hill Stadium. Allegany is undefeated and untied in six games, while the Tigers also comie snarling out of their West Virginia lair with the reputa- :ion of never having been beaten :his season. However, the Bengals lave ties with Fairmont East and Morgantown on their record which also shows a half dozen victories.' Near^apacity Crowd Seen A near-capacity crowd is expect ed to witness the .battle of unbeat- ens; including a big delegation :rom Elkins. The game is vitally important to the cause, of the boys from West Virginia's Forest Festival town because they are in contention • for the state's Class AA championship. Elkins is in second place in the standings, but faces elimination from the title picture if conquered tonight. Allegany, although an out- of-state foe, is a "Double-A" school, according to West Virginia standards, and tonight's game will count in the rating system.* The Tigers' final contest is with Parsons next week: If Elkins takes both Alco and Parsons into camp, they will go into the state title playoff, probably against St. Alban's, which is in first place. The Campers, by Lester's admission, have looked good.this week !n practice but still the Alco mentor is wearing an expression of concern. He is fearful that his team will be .without two regulars tonight, guard "Rumbles" Rice and quarterback Don Paye, both of whom sat out last week's victory over LaSalle. Lease To Start Paye is suffering with pulled back muscles, while Rice re- injured a bad ankle. Neither boy engaged in rough work this week, although both will be in uniform, Mike Lease, is expected to start at quarterback.' If Rice doesn't start, Pete Charuhas will be switched to guard,, with Jimmy Lueck taking over at center. The Tigers are expected to come to town at full strength. Charley Fletcher, big tackle, who has nol played since October 7 because of an injury, will probably see limited action. Bob Irwin, coach of the West Virginia team, indicates that he will start Kenny Riggleman and Elaine Corrick at ends, Harry Reppert and Don Carver, tackles; Bill Isner and Dana Helmick, guards: Sidney Jackson, center; Bill Wise, quarterback; Gary Phillips and Jim Lloyd, halfbacks, and "Butch" Koontz. fullback. Allegany and Elkins launcher their football scries in 1921 and in the seven games played to date the locals hold a 4-2 edge in- wins'. The teams will be meeting here for the fourth time and the Campers ,will be seeking their fourth straight win at home. AHS won m 1949 (28-13), 1951 (28-0) and 1953 (20-0). Elkins won at home in 1921 (48-0) and in 1950 (12^6) and held the Campers to a 14-14 tie there in 1952. Tonight's game is scheduled to get under way at 8 o'clock. The Elkins High band will also make the trip and perform at halftime. Johnson 7-To-5 Favorite Tonight CHICAGO !fl — George Johnson Trenton, N.'J., middleweight, rules a 7-5 favorite over Chicago's Bobby Boyd tonight in what should Se a free-swinging; action-crammed 10-rounder at Chicago Stadium. Johnson's only loss in five scraps this year was to. Ralph (Tiger) Jones and he has an overall rec ord of 26 victories in 38 starts, 22 by kayoes. Boyd, 21,. showed marked im provement in upsetting Gene Full nier last month to gain his fourth straight triumph of the year. He has .won 35 of 43 fights and fought two Straws. He has. polished off. 14 foes by knockouts. Tonight's bout, televised nation ally (10 p. m. EST — NBC), re places the originally schedulcc middleweight title fight between Sugar Ray Robinson and cham pion Bobo Olson. It wns postponed until Dec. 9 when Robinson in jured his ankle in training. Shooting Mnlch Set A shooting mntch will be helc: tomorrow, noon until dark, al Short Gap Fire Hall.

The "Midland Madcap," an all-time great at Frostburg's Beall High School, is GW's leading pass receiver with eight receptions for a total of 137 yards. The husky end is also one of the Colonials' top defensive men. ' • W : : -"~--i 17"* • • est Virginia To Get Test In GW Tonight , WASHINGTON— ^—Unbeaten West Virginia faces one o£ its sternest tests tonight against a big, fast George Washington team that ranks sixth in the nation in defense. The biggest home crowd in GW's history, some 25,000, is expected to be on hand for the 8:15 p. m. kickoff at Griffith Stadium. It Wismer Calls 24-7 Victory For Maryland Horry Wismer, who has 63 right end 13 wrong in his college foot- boll predictions for a .778 percentage, herewith presents his selections for this week's major games. By HARRY WISMER Famous Sports Commentator (Copjrrirht, 1955, By International News Service) Can Michigan do it again? The nation's No. 1 football team las waged a grim battle week after veek to keep its unblemished rec- ird clean against power-laden opposition. But the mighty Wolver- nes are blessed with the necessary all-around talent and. should'"win heir seventh straight tomorrow. .They might be extended, as they were last week against Iowa and .he week before by Minnesota, but Jim Maddock and Company will come through over Illinois, 26 to 13. Here are my choices in other top games: Navy 27, Duke 14.. . . Middies rebound from Notre Dame loss. Army 32, Yale .14 ... Too much ground power, plus some develop- ng air might. ' Oklahoma 21, Missouri 7 . Sooners to stay undefeated and go ;o Orange Bpwl. Maryland 24, LSU 7 . . . Un- deefated Terrapins already have plane tickets, for trip to bowl-bat- ie with Oklahoma.

Auburn 7, Mississippi State 6 ... The Plainsmen in a squeaker. Ohio State 30, Indiana 14 ... Buckeyes keep rolling along. National Football League at Griffith Stadium, marks the Colonials' only home appearance of the year. WVU Seeks Bowl A victory over GW, and.another over Pittsburgh next weekend, could well earn West Virginia a Sugar Bowl invitation and an opportunity to avenge the Mountaineer' 42-19 lacing from Georgia Tech two years ago. Assistant coach Russ Crane, who has scouted GW in three of its games, reported that the Colonials have "the toughest team we have faced so far." GW's big, mobile line averages 209 pounds and is the first line to outweigh the 206-pound West Virginia .backfield this season. The big men in the GW line, are end Paul Thompson, tackle Dave Liddick and center Dick Gaspari, all of whom coach Bo Sherman avers he wouldn't swap for anybody in the country. In the backfield, however, GW is heavily outweighed. Its starting backfield of Bob Sturm, Mike Sommer. Bill Weaver and Bo Austin averages only 172 pounds. Sommer Best Runner Sommer, a sophomore, is GW's best running threat. He ranks third in rushing in the Southern Conference averaging five yards a try. Bobby Moss, West Virginia's speedy halfback, is No. 1 in the conference with an average of nearly 10 yards a try. But with the two big, tough lines—West Virginia is fifth and GW sixth in total defense in the country—the game is likely to be decided in the air with West Virginia's southpaw Freddy Wyant competing against GW's Sturm, a Muskogee, Okla., senior. Sturm has completed 17 of 42 tries for 182 yards while Wyant has completed 32 of 56 for 534. Sherman figures he must stop Wyant to win. Each team has a 3-0 record in the conference. Overall, West Vir ginia is 6-0, GW 5-1, its only loss being a 28-0 defeat, by Florida. Michigan-Slate Game Needs Bigger Stadium EAST LANSING, Mich. — HI — Every time Michigan Slate plays Michigan in football worried athletic officials mop, their brow— and not over the score. This year, the Michigan-Michigan State gnmc was held at Ann Arbor, where the game, wns a 97,000-sent sellout. Even though the next game in the scries scheduled to be played at Michigan State's stadium at East Lansing is in 1958, officials are worried because MSU's stadium only seats 52,000. Thai's only enough room to take care of students of both schools, faculty and season ticket holders- no one else—officials say. Times-News Win Streak Shattered In Commercial League bowling action at the Savoy last night Eiler Chevrolet scored a sweep over Rosenbaum's with Osca' Leasure leading the way with a 177 game and 494 set.
