The Mountaineers, you see, thought .t>.ey had the services of the former Beall High star all sewed up. And they did, too,"before-Paul made, a last-minute decision to go to GW. George Hiib'er,; writing . in The v Washington ; star; this week, had f his to say about the ' 'Midland Madcap": ..... • ''Thompson always has been a solid., defensive , player, but his v/ork there,'• generally has ' been overlooked in favor of his passes tching skills./ He was the Colonials' No. 1 receiver : last year and/again is the; leader; .but he • would be worthihaying pn;'tlierteam if he never caught'a pass." . • • Thompson is a' real competitor, [n the'Closing minutes of the West Virginia game the Colonials started a .drive oh their own 15-yard line and;, -began a~ : desperate ' march downfield which almost ended in disaster for unbeaten WOT.;, They were on the Mountaineer-15 and a pass was thrown to Thompson that could have tied the game. "Bubbles" attempted to make the catch on the goalline, but two bjg backs from the "Mountain Country" went up into the air at the same time. Thompson was knocked dizzy, but still wanted to stay in the game.'. Trainer Harry Ledford 'needed the help of two players to get him off the field. Of such material are champions made." " • Sports Keg Residue School officials at Fort Hill and Allegany High; have, decided to move up the starting time of the big * Thanksgiving Day football game here to 1:30 p: m. : ., : .'In the'j>ast the holiday classic has A;gun at 2 p. m., and the new inckoff time will give players and fans'a half-hour more of sunshine and -warmth, providing >'01e Soil makes his . appearance? V .. . In any'' event, it seems like a very good idea because-the late November, air begins to turn right chilly about 4 p. m. ... Besides fans will be able- to get home a half- hour .earlier to their Thanksgiving turkey dinners. . . . Some of the University of Maryland football players say they are v tired of read' ing- about "how •>badly Oklahoma beat Missouri," a team Maryland topped by only a point. . - . "How about our games with North Carolina?" they ask. . .. . : "We beat North Carolina, 25-7, and they scored .on a fluke, while .Oklahoma beats 'em only 13-6." . . .Incidentally, the games in question were the" first of the season for both Maryland and Oklahoma. . . . West Virginia quarterback Freddie Wyant has accepted an invitation to play in Honolulu's "Hula .Bowl" game next January 8. . ... Wyant is the winningest signal caller in ; college football A regular since his freshman year, he has a four-season record of 30 wins and three losses. - ...

Scoring Ace Of Tornado SidelinedBy Ankle Injury Keyser High School's Golden Tornado goes roaring into the South Branch Valley tomorrow in tent on' making the. football forecasters look good by sweeping the underdog Pioneers of Romney off their feet. If the forces of Fred ."Tack- Clark succeed, they will be rewarded with the 1955 championship of :he Potomac Valley Conference and Keyser will have o'ne of its most successful seasons in history. The Tornado has won eight of nine games to date. In order to nail down its second straight outright title and its third n the past four years, Keyser will almost certainly have to get by the Pioneers without the services of :heir high-scoring halfback, Jimmy iVebb! The Tornado toter, who has racked .up 13 touchdowns, in the "irst nine games, suffered a badly injured - ankle .last week against Petersburg and is still on crutches. -To Watch From Bench Webb; top .schoolboy pointmaker :n the districtr-was hurt in a pileup at the goal line when he punched over with Keyser's first touchdown ast week. . "I can't see how he can possibly get in shape for tomorrow,.Clark said today. "I know how badly le wants to play in this last game, but I'm afraid he'll have, to watch from the'be'nch..' ' .'•' The Tornado has .been working out this week with Bill Clevenger running in Webb's place. A junior, Bill is second-string quarterback on offense and a backfield regular on defense. Like Webb, Clevenger is a speed merchant. Keyser will also be without the services of Richard Shuck at end 'or the second straight week!. He recently underwent an appendectomy, and will be replaced tomorrow by Charley Tribett. Both Teams 'Up' Both Clark and Wes Abrams, Romney's coach, report that their squads have been showing a lot of hustle and. spirit in . this, week's practices. : The Keyser-Rdmney contest is one of keen rivalry and he opposing squads generally "get up" for this one without too much of a pep talk from their, coaches. The injury bug has not confined its. biting to the Keyser squad, laving .also found its way. into the •lomney Icanip.v .Three-fourths of the Pioneers backfield is "ailing, vith halfback Roland Shanholtz and fullback 1 Tommy Hartman nursing ankle injuries and halfback Iddie Hartman suffering with a charley horse. All three backs have been making trips to Cumber- and this week fo.r treatment. An upset victory tomorrow for Romney would force Keyser to share the PVC title with Ridgeley. The Blackhawks, nosed out 13-7 earlier in the season by Keyser, 'inished. their season with a 5-1 conference record but a new rule states that only five.games can be counted in deciding the title. Keyser has a 4-0 mark in PVC play- Top Turnout Expected Tomorrow's game is expected to attract' the largest turnout of the season at Romney, with' the open- ng kickpff scheduled for 1:30 p. m. Tomorrow's game will conclude Mark's 13th season at Keyser. His •ecord to date shows 84 victories and 45 setbacks.

Swink is from Texas Christian: Cassady, of Ohio State, made the 1954 All-America and may very well repeat; and Childress is the spark of a surprising Auburn team.

The Associated Press All-America, based on findings of the regional boards, will be announced Dec. 2 after reports from all regular season games have been thoroughly sifted. ' Here is & national rundown by! regions or conferences: ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE—Tamburello is a defensive standout as well as the imaginative quarterback of unbeaten Maryland.

Other good backs are Ed Vereb, Maryland; Joel Wells, Clemson; Bob Pascal, Duke; Joe Pagliei, Clemson; Billy O'Dell, Clemson; and Bryant Aldridge, Duke. SOUTHERN—Wyant, who quarterbacks unbeaten West Virginia, is tops in this section followed by 3obby Moss,. West. Virginia; Mike Sommer, George Washington; and Frank Pajaczkowski, Richmond. EASTERN—Welsh, Navy's mastermind, looks strongest here, with Don Holleder beginning to show real strength for Army, and Jimmy Brown of Syracuse attracting attention for his size and speed. 18,245 NBA Twin Bill By Th* Associated Freii Some of "the brightest young stars in the National .

Iff) — fruitless hassle over the fate of the. San Francisco Seals out of the way. Pacific Coast League directors turned today to possible shortening of the baseball circuit's playing schedule and some discussion about the umpires. . Rebuffed in' their efforts to sell the Seals franchise to the ; Milwaukee Braves of the National League for $200,000 and with no other prospective purchasers in town, the league decided last night to retain the franchise. It took two and a half hours for Joe Cairnes, executive vice president of the Braves to say "No" last night to the franchise proffered him by the hopeful league officials. He took no time at all explaining why he said "No" but it generally was believed the price was too high. Claire Goodwin, league prexy, ;hen announced, the PCL will con- :inue to offer the franchise. Fail- nig that, he said, "The league will operate the club in 1956." Goodwin said there were other prospective buyers but wouldn't name them although he said Hank rreenberg, general' manager of the Cleveland Indians, wasn't out of the market. Greenberg failed last month to buy.the team for $150,000. Lot At Stake It's just that there's a lot at stake in both games and maybe a little' of the whoop and holler will spur the underdogs.

By HARRY WISMER Famous Sports Commentator. (Copyright. 1955, By International News Service) It's a foregone conclusion that Maryland and Oklahoma will .re- n.ain undefeated and wind up in the Orange Bowl. But what about West Virginia's chances of remaining the only other unbeaten power? The seventh-ranked Mountaineers, victorious in seven straight games, are leading candidates for either the Cotton or Sugar Bowls. 3ut this week they face & rugged Pitt team that has upset on its mind. .. ' West Virginia admittedly hasn't met the caliber of some of Pitt's opponents.' The surprise conquerors of Duke have lost only to Miami, Navy and Oklahoma in.eight ;ames.
