The Alco squad didn't drill yesterday or to day and will work out lightly for the remainder of the week, starting tomorrow. Although the Campers'won over previously undefeated Elkins by a handy score, the game was.rug- gedly fought between two evenly- matcbed lines and quite a few bl the Allegany gridders came out ol the contest badly bruised. With a week for allowing the aches and pains to subside, the Campers should be in good shape for rough vyork next week, Lester says. iBob Fletcher,, the speedy Alle• gany halfback who was hurt late ifi the first - quarter of Friday's game, is expected to be ready by ijext week. Bob suffered a torn cartilage in his chest. [There are no serious injuries on the Fort Hill squad, just the usual Amount of -bruises- and ailments that come with every game. The JJenlinels turned back a surprising ]y tough Westminster team on Fri : djay for their eighth straight victory. j Yesterday, the Fort Hill < players elected halfback Jim *, Crawford and end Roland Shaf. honorary co-captains for |j the year. The two seniors will I be the team's co-captains on 5 "Turkey Day." ! Incidentally, Fort Hill will be the home team in this year's game and Sentinel fans vill occupy the concrete stands. The Sentinels will wear red jerseys and Allegany will don white for the occasion in conformance with the.' schools' policy of alternating every season. Willie Wows 'Em , Willie Hartack, it seems, could throw his saddle on a saw-horse these days at Laurel and it would be nothing worse than, a lfl-to-1 shot. The belting folk just don't argue with success. For success belongs io the 22- year-old Pcnnsylvanian. His scnre for the Laurel meeting Js 19 victories In 34 rides. Six- winners Saturday and four more yesterday boosted his 1955 (ally fo 373, considerably nhcad of nil rivals. Willie is shooting for 400. a goal attained by only one other jockey, Willie Shoemaker in 1953. There's little doubt that, numerically, Hartack will prove himself this year's best rider, Friday, he'll try to prove it another way, matching his riding ability at first hand against a representation of the world's greatest riders in the Washington, D.C. International. The others will Include Eddie Arcaro, the man who wins the big ones; Shoemaker, holder of the record for winners ridden; Eric Gucrin. (lie famed rider of Native Dancer, and Johnny Longden. who has ridden almost 5,000 winners. From foreign tracks will come Lester Piggott, hailed as heir apparent to Gordon Richards' place as the lop of the English riding roster; W. Rac Johnstonc, "The Crocodile" who won the French, English and Irish derbies in 1948; Waller Held, a 45-year-old veteran who was Germany's leading jockey in 1952 and 1953, and France's Fred Palmer who rode Phil Drake to victory in this year's Epsom Derby. .

Since then, however, they have won five of seven and will ring down the curtain with. Saturday's tussle. Scries Started In 1929 ' Last year LaSalle smacked down the Marauders by a 33-6 count for only the fourth Explorer win in the series which started back in 1929 when the two schools battled to a scoreless stalemate. The series record stands at six wins for Altoona, 'four for LaSalle and one tie. ." • '• Last time Alloona turned back a LaSalle eleven was in 1949 when the Marauders copped a 7-0 decision. The schools did not meet n 1950 or 1952, but LaSalle won 30-0 in 1951 and 44-19 in '53 which was Norm -Geatz's first full year as. Explorer mentor. Whereas last, .year's LaSalle team compiled one .of the best records in the history of the school 8-2), the current edition of the oc'al parochials is headed for what could be one of the worst. The Explorers have lost five straight lames since scoring their only victory at- the expense of Petersburg. This followed a 13-13 open- ng tie with Bedford. ' FanclH Flies Sparkplugs of the Altoona team J-aSalle will meet at Altooria an lalfback John Fanelli, fullback ]hick Denesevich arid quarterback John Wiley. The latter, a junior, stands three inches over the six- oot mark and tips the scales at .85 pounds. Fanelli is shifty and fast and icored three touchdowns, one on i 58-yard run, in last Saturday's win over Claysburg. The Marauders use both the splii-T and sin:le-wing formations, LaSalle has two more games aft- r the Altoona clash, meeting lomney next week at Fort Hill Stadium and then colliding with eall in their annual Thanksgiving )ay encounter in Frostburg. Big weekend game in the dis- rict will be played Saturday aft- rnoon at Romncy where the Polo- nac Valley Conference champion- hip will be decided. Wcs Abrams' 'ioneers entertain the Golden Tor- iado which comes roaring down U.S. 50 from Keyser with a record f eight wins and only one loss— i heartbreaking setback 'at the ands of Allegany. Unbeaten In Conference In conference play, the charges f Fred "Tack'SClark are vjnde- ealed in four starts. A win Sat- rday would give the PVC title i) the Tornado, but a loss would cave them with a record second o Ridgeley. Most of the schools have already losed their seasons, although the liggest battle of them all from ; Cumberland standpoint—the city hampionship game between un- lefeated Allegany and once-beaten 'ort Hill-is still to be fought, 'hat one is slated for Thanksgiving Day. Beall journeys to Winchester on r riday to tangle with Handley icfore getting ready for LaSalle, | i'hile Elkins plays at Parsons, on; he same day in the final game or both teams.

Harry-Markson, managing direc- or of the International Boxing lub, revealed last night that the /inner would be the. next to have ic privilege, if Trot the pleasure, f trying to whip Mareiano. No date or site-'for'-the title match was indicated, but after larciano's last title defense — in hich he KOd Archie Moore ept. 21—it was thought fight fans robably would next get a look at he Rock in action in June. Baker, No. 3 among the contend- rs in the last ring ratings! and aides, No. 4, have'figured along 'ith the unpredictable Hurricane ackson and the promising young loyd Patterson as the only likely hallengcrs after Moore failed to ent' Marciano's unbeaten rec- rd. • Patterson, just 20 years old, asn't considered seriously since e's the top challenger for Moore's ght-heavywcight lille and is being roomed for a heavyweight try no arlier than 1957. Jackson, 23, was emovcd from the eligible list as beaten recently by Jimmy ,ade. Valdes, a big Cuban was consid- red the No. l contender a year go. But then the 6-3, 31-year-old usky was toppled by losing deci- ons against Moore and Bob Saterfield. Valdes has been fighting nee 1941 and has won 34 of 47 outs. Baker, 28 and 210 pounds, sup- lied one of Valdes' defeats. The 3 Pills-burgher dccisioned the Cuan in a 10-rounder in May, 1953. hat was one of nine straight vic- irics for Baker, who's .been round since 1949. Three of his ve successes this year, however, ave been over the not-so-hofc Rex ayne. Baker has won 42 of 48. Vereb Grabs Rushing Lead In Conference GREENSBORO, N. C. tfi-Mary- land halfback Ed Vereb has taken over as the-No. 1 rushing back in the Atlantic Coast Conference and has climbed to within one yard ol Wake Forest's Nick Consoles in total offense. However, a pair oi late-coming backs from North Carolina State loom as major threats for the season crowns. Vereb, according the ACC Service Bureau compilations, has 506 net yards rushing and a 6.1-yard rushing average. He has 593 yards in total offense compared to 594 for Consoles, who netted only _., yards against William & Mary Saturday. Clemson's Joe Wells and Billy O'Dell and Duke's Bob Pascal trail Vereb in rushing with 463, 462 and 453 yards, respectively. The fifth man is North Carolina State's Dick Christy, with 430 yards. Christy gained 103 yards against Boston. U. Saturday, the second week in a row he's gone over the 100 yard mark. His 6.7-yard rushing average is best in the conference, and he has one more game to play than does Vereb. North Carolina State's quarterback Eddie West, is a closer third in total offense with 541-yards. West's 6.8- yard per-play average is the ACC's best. ....'. Maryland quarterback .Frank Tamburello-is fourth in the ACC total offense race with 519 yards and he, too, cannot be counted out of the race. Consoles is the unchallenged- passing leader again with 64 completions for 711 yards and five TDs. West is second, though 36 completions behind. Consoles 'needs only four completions in his final two games to tie'the ACC single-season passing record. Porterfield, Vernon, Two Others Traded To Boston WASHINGTON — The Washington Senators today traded pitcher Bob Porterfield, first baseman Mickey Vernon and two other players for five Boston Red Sox players. Also going to Boston are pitcher Tommy Umphlett. In return, the Senators will receive righthanded pitchers Richard Brodowski, Alpheus Lee Curtis Jr., and Truman E. Clevenger, and outfielders Karl Olson and Neil B. Chrislcy. President Calvin Griffith of the Senators said Olson'will be Washington's centerfielder and that Chrisley, who played with Nashville of the Southern Assn. last season, probably, will play left field. In broad perspective, the deal looks like a bid by Boston to get tested veterans who might give the Red Sox the added edge they need for a pennant winner next yeaf. Boston 'made a late season surge in 1055 but finished fourth, 12- games back of the Yankees. For the rebuilding Senators, who finished last this year, the deal brings young and promising players. Olson, 25, is a key acquisitio'n for them. It is the first player deal engineered by Griffith since he took over recently as president of the club following the death of his father, Clark 'Griffith. Griffith said the Senators "have .Grid Fatalities Show Big Drop LOS ANGELES Iff) — A sharp drop in football fatalities is reported by Dr. Floyd R. Eastwood of the American Football Coaches Assn. Dr. -Eastwood, associate dean of students at Los Angeles State Col ; lege, said yesterday only four direct fatalities have been repor.ted to Nov. 1, three of these high school players in Southern states. The other was a Colorado A & M player. The total reported at the comparable time last year was 12 and in 1953 it was 11. Dr.-Eastwood, chairman of the coaches' injury and fatality committee, said all fatalities this year were caused by blows to the head, causing injuries to the brain, skull or spine. This is by far the most common type of severe injury in Ihe game, he added. other deals in the works." He indicated, however, that he did not expect to complete any of them before the .major league meeting in Chicago Dec. 5-6-7. Westlake Signed Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA «l — The Phil- delphia Phillies have signed Wal- Wesllakc, 34-year-old Jong ball itter who has played previously ilh five major league clubs. Roy Hamey, Phillies general lanager, said yesterday in an- ouncing the signing that he -atchcd Westlake play for Oakland nd Portland in the Pacific Coast eaguc last year and feels Wcst- ke still can help a major league ub. Westlake was released by Balti- orc last year. He drifted to the oast League from there. $ SAVE $ SAVE $ ALL TOYS UCLA, Beaten By Maryland, Tops Terpsln Dunl$elRating By DICK DUNKEL DAYTON^ BEACH, Fla. '— (Special) — Michigan State took 'over the lead in the college football Power Index as ratings shrank after a week-end of so-so performances by many .of "the nation's leading teams. The Spartans, who only loss in seven games was an early 7-pointer to Michigan, have run up heavy margins over their Jast five victims—Stanford, Notre Dame, Illinois, Wisconsin and Purdue. Michigan State's net scoring su periority per game is now 15.3 points. The Spartans' schedule has been one of the toughest, their opponents having'had. an average adjusted Power Index of 96.4. Adding 15.3 to 96.4 yields the Michigan State rating of 111.7, highest in the land. Last .week's leader, Oklahoma, is now second. After trimming Missouri, 20-0, last Saturday, the Soon- ers now have a 23.6 scoring margin over 87.4 opposition for a 111.0 rating. Their record is 7-0. And, wrong as it may seem to many fans, UCLA is now in third place ahead of .undefeated Maryland which hung a 7-0 defeat on the Uclans back tn Sept. 24. The explanation is' simply^ that the Power Index is based on average performance and on that basis, UCLA has more* than, made up for its early debit to Maryland. . UCLA now has a 7-1 record, after beating College of Pacific, 34-0, last Saturday, and a 27.0 scoring margin over 83.1- opposition index for a rating of After blanking LSU, 13-0, Maryland's record is 8-0. The Terps' margin has been 15.3 over 93.4 opposition for a 108.7 rating. No.- 5 TCU was idle over last weekend. With the exception of No. 7 Texas A & M, the next eight teams in the rankings all suffered rating decreases but.managed to stay among the'elite.

He hasn't landed one. .-• ' Gabe.Paul, general manager of the Redlegs, .also announced the resigning of coaches Jimmy Dykes and Tom Ferrick and trainer Wayne Anderson. v Detroit Hoping To Go Big Time DETROIT MT—The Rev. Celestin, J. Steiner, president of the 'University of Detroit, says he is try. ing to build a football program: that he hopes will enable future, Titan teams to play opponents the stature of Michigan, State and Notre Dame. "As a university of nine or 10. thousand students, I think we are-being realistic when we strive to. attain the same excellence in football as in other activities of the university," he told the Michigan- Football Writers Assn. yesterday.;"We compete with schools of.- our size or larger in other sports, why not in football, and basketball?" Father Steiner asked. ••: The University of Detroit is a member of the Missouri Valley Conference. "For many reasons," Father Steiner said, '-you must belong tbv a conference.
