DM PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Ttk«r EVENING TRIES, CUMBERLAND, MD,. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1955 TWENTY-SEVEN Army-Navv Contest Could Be Battle Of Defensive Skill •/ •/ «f •/ na Sellout Mob 01102,000 ToSeeGame '^PHILADELPHIA Wl - The Army and Navy meet -on • the football field torhorrow for the 56th time with the statistics .indicating this colorful' gridiron classic at Municipal '• Stadium"..could well be a .test of defensive skill. A sellout crowd of 102,000 is.expected. Army, a 6^-point underdog, is the nation's No. 1 defensive team. It has yielded'only 139.5 yards per game in winning five of eight contests. Navy, last year's 27-20 winner, ranks'third defensively. The Middies have given up an average of 169 yards a game while winning six, losing to Notre Dame and tying Duke. Attack Geared To Welsh But, as has often been the case in the heated inter-service rivalry, the offense could well rise to unexpected heights. Navy's attack is>- geared to the throwing, arm of 165-pound George Welsh from Coaldale, Pa., fully recovered from a sore toe that hampered his play in late season games. Navy Coach Eddie Erdelatz calls -Welsh the greatest quarterback he has ever coached. Don Holleder, a 187-pounder from Webster, N. Y., and/one of the most • controversial figures in col : lege football this season,. directs the Army attack. A great end last year, he was switched to quarterback, where he has shown greater ability at running the ball than at passing. But figures show he has completed passes .for six touchdowns, only two less than Welsh. Blaik Blames Team Holleder has been blamed by some for the Cadets defeats by Michigan, Syracuse and Yale but veteran Coach Earl (Red) Blaik has placed the blame on mistakes by the entire team. Both coaches 'were' confident of victory, as they,led their teams into Municipal Stadium today for brief workouts before retiring to suburban clubs to await'game time tomorrow. The weather prospect was fair and cool with a fast field. That is just what Blaik ordered for his swift backs, led by Pat Uebel, 'who scored all of the. Army's touchdowns two years ago in a 20-7 victory and ripped the Middies' line apart in a losing cause last year. Millions will be able to look in on the game via the national televi- f Ion hookup (NBC), starting at "*?:30 p. m. (ESTK Outcast Put [n Pimlico's Favorite Role WVlVState To Play Finale RALEIGH, N. C.

The Wolfpack will take the field with a 4-4-1 record after winning four of its last Small in numbers arid in size, Coach Earle Edwards' crew is used to being outweighed. "We'll play our usual style and hope it works against their big linemen," Edwards said last night The Wolfpack will catch a WVU eleven attempting to rebound from two straight defeats after seven consecutive victories this year. The contest" will be the season's finale for both elevens. Two-years ago here, West Virginia wound up another season — and at the same time locked up a Sugar Bowl bid- by thrashing the Wolfpack 61-0. West Virginia turned back North Carolina State at Morgantown last year 28-3.

By GEORGE BOWEN BALTIMORE ; W) - Social Outcast can make it old home 'day at 'imlico tomorrow by winning the Special. .'...• His owner, Alfred. G. Vanderbilt, started the Special 18 years ago, with an'idea of making it a race ;o settle any championship or other jurning questions of the tracks as he year drew to a close. The race never actually panned out that way, although the second running in 1938 did bring together he great Seabiscuit.and War Admiral in a match race won by the 'ormer. Other great horses such as Chal- edon, Whirlaway, Twilight Tear, Armed, Assault, Citation and Tom Tool won the Special. But Vander? bill, the former track president, never had an entry. There's something ironic about iis'.'first being. Social Outcast, the lavorite over seven other probable starters. Gets Big Chance During his first two years of rac- ng eligibility, Social Outcast was ittle more than. a sparring partner for Native Dancer, the grey wonder horse also owned by Van derbilt. Social Outcast, given his chance ;his year after Native Dancer's re irement, • roamed the length anc areadth of the country to win seven jig races on as many differen tracks. He has amassed $338,275 already this year and his tota earnings of $621,800 are the sev enth highest ever credited to a norse. Victory in the Special would adc $40,000 to his total, leaving him only $13,670 short of becoming sixth on the all-time list. On National TV Making his appearance in the Special even more "homey" is the fact he was born five years ago on Vanderbilt's farm not many miles from Pimlico. Social Outcast and two others from Laurel's -International fielc in which he was third are enterec tomorrow. J. F..

(/P) — When the 20th. annual Associated Press college football poll ends, this weekend, Oklahoma's. Sooners may have achieved their second mythical national championship in history.

By JOE REICHLER NEW YORK UrV^- Unless, all signs fail, college basketball followers can expect neck-and-neck races right down the line in each of the four major conferences in the Midwest this season. This is the way they shape up now: Iowa is favored to repeat as Big Ten champion after a' tight struggle with Illinois. Kansas is picked to dethrone Colorado in the-Big Seven, but should be hard pressed by Missouri. St. Louis is the choice in the Missouri Valley but Houston may take it all. Marshall rates the nod over Miami of Ohio in the Mid - American .Conference but Bowling Green, an improved'; team, may beat both. t Iowa Team To Beat Marquette, Notre Dame, Dayton and Cincinnati loom as the strongest independents but Xavier of Oh'io, Loyola and DePaul of Chicago figure to prove troublesome Despite a kidney injury to Sharm Scheuerman, one of the four re- urning regulars of last year's championship squad, Iowa is stil ;he team to beat in the Big Ten. Illinois, which closed with a rush o tie for second place last season, las its top seven men back including 6-4 Paul Judson, 6-8 George Bonsalle and 6-5 Bruce Brothers. Kansas has three regulars back but must get help from 6-7 Lew Johnson to cash in on its title lopes. Missouri, led by 6-4 Norm Stewart, has been strengthened by the return of Willard Wilfong from service. St. Louis has lost high scoring Dick Boushka but has more heighl ;his season with 6-8 Al Serkin and 6-6 Dick Thompson. Jim McLough!in heads four returnees. Houston is looking forward to its greatest season with 7-foot Boldebuck leading the way. The advance word is that Marshall will be a powerhouse this sea- ion. It gets three starters back plus a strong sophomore group. Miame graduated two starters but gets its first big pivot man in three years in 6-7 Wayne Enbree. High Scorer Returns Marquette, which won 22 straigh ast year and had a 24-3 .over-all record, still has its high scorer Terry Rand, as well as three other loldovers and "three good sopho mores: Notre Dame lost only one man, high scoring Jack Stephens Dayton lost heavily, but has 7-foo Bill Uhl back along with Army re .urnees Jimmy Paxton and Arlen 3ockhorn, Cincinnati lost two men but has "a fine trio remaining from ast year's. squad. Xavier has a veteran team led by 6-5 . Dave Piontek. ' Loyola,' besides getting most o; its veterans back, has a couple o; giant sophomores in 6-10 : Steve VIrkvicha and 6-8. George Due- meister. DePaul has three regulars back arid has three promising sophomores. - .

THI MOTORISTS' FRIEND, Inc. 173 l«ltimor« Strt«t JOE forth* Larf «tt Selection off TOYS USE OUR LAY AW AY PLAN awarding the coveted O'Dohnell Trophy. Results of the final week's poll will be published Tuesday. Three Legs To Retire Engraved with this inscription, 'National Intercollegiate Championship Football Trophy," the 1 3'Donnell award has gone to the inal AP poll winner each year since 1948, .as did the Williams Trophy for seven previous years. The O'Donnell trophy, named in lonor of the late : Rev. J. Hugh O'Donnell, former Irish football player and Notre Dame president :rom 1940 through 1946, must be won three times to be retired. Notre Dame's Fighting Irish in- icrited sponsorship of a national championship trophy by winning ;he University of Minnesota's Williams trophy for the third time in 1947. Thus, this weekend, the nation's sports writers and TV-radio sportscasters, through the long-established AP poll, again will crown the country's championship team. Oklahoma took the O'Donnell trophy in 1950 and must hold fast in the determining AP poll against Michigan State and Maryland, who also have one leg on the trophy with 1952 and 1953 triumphs, respectively. Michigan State, currently No. 2, and third-spot Maryland already have finished regular season play. Ohio State Last Year The winner of last year's AP poll was Ohio State, just crowned Big Ten champion for the second straight year, while Michigan won the O'Donnell Trophy its first year, 1948; Notre Dame captured it in 1949; and the other winner was Tennessee in 1951. Father O'Donnell was a letter- winning center on the 1915 Notre Dame football team. He entered the Holy Cross order shortly after he graduated and despite his priestly and administrative dutie: always kept close touch with Irish football. After his death in June of 1947, the same year Notre Dame retired the Williams .Trophy, the Notre Dame Monogram Club created as a memorial to Father O'Donnell the national grid award. Notre Dame's famous Coach Knute K. Rockne, had previously been honored by the second of a series of four trophies presented to the nation's top football team. The Rockne Trophy (1931-1940) was retired by Minnesota and had been preceded by the Rissman Trophy (1924-1930). Notre Dame retired the Rissrnan Trophy, donated by a Chicago sportsman, Jack F. Rissman, by top ratings in 1924, 1929 and 1930. Duke Reserve Leads Loop In Interceptions GREENSBORO, N. C. «T—Duke's sub quarterback, Dale Boyd, has lumped into the Atlantic Coast Con- 'erence pass'interception lead with a record tying'.total of six. Maryland's Ed -Vereb and Wake forest's Bill Barnes are tied for second with five each, .trailed by Terp Dave Nusz and Deacon Charlie Carpenter with four each But all four have closed out their regular seasons; Boyd's total ties the old. ACC single season interception record of six shared by Jerry Barger. former Duke star, and Mackie Prickett of South Carolina. Weekend action caused no change in the ACC punt and kickoff return ing races, conference service bu reau figures show. Carroll McClain of South Carolina tops punt return ers with 128 yards and Carl Brazel of the Gamecocks leads kickoff re turners with 378 yards. Barnes has settled the pass re ceiving battle with a final total o 31, a new ACC record. John Par ham of Wake has 18 but is through for the year. Jese Hagy o£. Virginia has 17, but he'd need almost tha many more in his one remaining game to catch up. Duke's Jim Nelson still leads extra point kicking with 21 for 24 (.875) and has tied his own record for most extra points in one season —21. Boxer Boardward : Billy Smith is an attendant in the county jail in Atlantic City, N. J. . ation was Bob Pellegrini., who! made the switch from guard to; center and won the board's acclaim as-the No. 1 player of the con- erence. Duke, which can tie Maryland or the conference title if it beats Carolina next week, took hree places, with Wake Forest, forth Carolina and Clemson each ;aining one. Only disappointing South Caro- ina of the eight members failed o place a man on the first two earns. .The backfield is a dynamite- jacked quarter of Maryland's Ed Vereb and Frank Tamburello, Duke's Bob Pascal and Joel Wells of Clemson. Tamburllp and Wells are among the four juniors on the :eam. "• The ends are fiery Will Frye, a 190-pounder from North Carolina, and Darrell (Sonny) Sorrell, 178- pound Duke flanker. Bob Bartholomew, Wake Forest's 218-pounder and Mike Sahdusty, 240-pound Maryland junior, are the :ackles and the biggest men on he squad. Bartholomew and Pascal are repeaters from last year's team: ' . Jesse Birchfield of Duke and Jack Davis, another Maryland junior, were the standouts at .guard. Coach Jim Taturn moved Pellegrini, a,former .high school quar- terback from guard where he distinguished himself last year, to center with the pre-season comment that he "could easily be the nation's lineman of the year." This appraisal was borne out this week when the American Football Coaches Assn. voted him the Walter Camp Memorial Trophy as "Player of the Year." Vereb, used sparingly a year ago as a junior, carried only 17 times in 1954 for an eight-yard average. This season the 185-pounder from Pittsburgh averaged 5.7 for 113 rushes and raced for 16 touchdowns. His 729 yards leads the conference in total offense. .

Tatum once said of him: "He can, take a play that's falling to pieces in front of him and make something of it. He can make chicken . salad out of chicken feathers."
