EIGHTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker UNO City's Three Cage Teams Open Seasons Tonight The Cumberland Valley Athletic League, which was reorganized some months ago as a football circuit, has been expanded to include -basketball and track. This action was taken at a meeting of representatives of schools from three stales making up the schoolboy confcr- " ence. The session was held yesterday at Berkeley Springs ' with both of Cumberland's high nchools—Fort Hill and Allegany being represented. Froslburg's Beall High express•••ed interest in the CVAL when - coaches began to toy with the idea - of reviving the old circuit some months ago. Yesterday, however, the Mountaineers reported that they were dropping out. As of now, the league is comprised of Fort Hill, Allegany, Handley (Winchester), Frederick. Hagerstown, Front Royal. Marlinsburg and There is also a possibility that Front Royal may quit, leaving the league a six-team affair. The Virginia school was represented at yesterday's confab but a spokesman said schedule commitments in Virginia may prevent the Wildcats from remaining in the CVAL. Football and basketball compe- tion in the league won't begin until next year, but the schools will battle for track and field honors; this coming spring. The champ- 1 ionship will be decided at one meet, the 1955 athletic carnival being tentatively scheduled for Friday night, May 13, at Fort Hill Stadium. In order to qualify for Ihe football and basketball championships each team must play every other school in the conference. The title will go to the team with the highest percentage of games won. Ties in football will count a half-game won and a half-game lost. In the event Iwo or more (cams tie for the grid title, they will be declared co-champions and all will be given trophies. Champions in the other sports will also get trophies. Schedules, rules and the general setup of the circuit were also discussed yesterday. Next meeting is scheduled for the last week •in March at Berkeley Springs. At that time officers will be elected. Sports Keg Residue -You can add the name of Rutgers University to the list of schools scouring this area in the quest of football talent. . . Rutgers is not in the collegiate big' time ranks, but the Scarlet plays a representative schedule. . . Besides, a Rutgers offer could mean ~the chance of a college education for a boy who might be passed "by Maryland, West Virginia or some of the -other "big - time" schools Maryland publicist Joe Blair feels the Tcrps are a lot better off from a quarterback standpoint in preparing for Oklahoma than they were two years ago when they dropped a 7-0 decision to the Sooners in the Orange Bowl . . It will be recalled that Bernie Faloney, Maryland's All-American quarterback, was injured in the final game of the regular season against Alabama Alco, LaSalle Both Home; Hilltoppers In Road Tilt By JIM DAY Times Scholastic Sports Edilor Five more high school cage teams, including the city's three representatives, make their first appearance on the hardwoods this evening as a total of 15 schoolboy clashes and one collegiate fray are listed. Locally, the Allegany Campers and LaSalle Explorers will give rooters a glimpse of their teams on home floors while the Fort Hill Sentinels travel to Frederick to meet the Cadets. The Red Raiders r irst home tussle will be next Tuesday against Modrefield. Gene "Red" Shaw, who used to do his high school playing for the Campers, has now asumcd the role of head coach following the resignation of "Bill" Bowers after 29 years of Alco tutoring. Shaw's version of the Blue and White, which will be dotted with three returning regulars, will meet Southern of Oakland at Campobcllo. George Geatz, the former LaSalle all-around great, will start 1 his second year of master-minding the Explorers and sends the North, Centre Streeters against Valley ofj Detmold on the SS. Peter and Paul boards. Only Bill Roberts is back as a regular from the 1954-55 quint. Three Regulars Return At Allegany, the Campers will lineup with Rod Brcediove at center and Ronnie Bruce and Carl Brown at guards. All three saw, starting duty last year with Breed love finishing second in city sco ing with 294 markers in 21 game while Brown, getting a starter ro near the mid-way point of th campaign, finished up with 1: tallies and Bruce 116. Otherwise-it will be Mike Leas and Jim Thomas, both with battl experience, at the forward slots ALL-AMERICA BACK HONORED-AH-America Howard (Hopalong) Cassady of Ohio Stale and his wife are shown with the Heisman Trophy awarded Cassady last night. The Buckeye back was honored as the outstanding college football player of 1955 by the Downtown Athletic Club of New York at a dinner attended by 800. (AP Photofax) and played only for several minutes in the Orange Bowl. "We might not have a quarterback as good as Faloncy. but we have two healthy ones in Frank Tamburello and Lynn BeightoL". . . When Charley Boxold took over for Faloney against Oklahoma, he was working with the first-string backfield for the first time. . . But both Tamburello and Bcightol worked with the 1955 first team... Lynn played second string most of the season, but took over in the Clemson game. . . That's the one (.he Terps needed to nail the Orange Bowl bid and the former Fort Hill High star brought his Also slated for action are Ronni Diehl, Maynard Van "Teter, Lonni Jackson and Sandy Dychc. In Bowers' last season the Camp ers compiled a record of 12 win and nine losses while sharing wit LaSalle and Fort Hill in the oi Lille.

The Highlander, upset Allegany, 56-48, last cam paign in the opener at Oakland. Last year's leading scorer in th city, six-foot, four-inch Tommj Smith, has the hopes of the LaSall followers high this season. Smith who flipped in a record 495 points for a 23.5 average while playing with Carver High, is only a sopho more and will start at center. Along with guard Roberts, the team's only holdover regular, the Explorers will have Van Parsons Regis Fair and Joe Thompson ii the starting lineup. Missing from last year's quint which had one o; the btaf. records in the schools history with 17 wins and only four setbacks, are Phil Geatz. Rickey Harris. Jerry Hart and Billy Dove Valley Appears Tough In meeting Vaiiey, the Explorers will face one of their toughest teams of the year. The Detmold Dandies opened with a convincing 68-57 victory over Piedmont and have two returning vets in "Cokie" Robertson and "Butch 1 Young. The Knights and LaSalle split in last year's two tills, Valley winning at home. 66-43, and then dropping a thrilling, 64-61, battle here. Fort Hill will be facing Fred- crick for the first time and coach "Bobby" Cavanaugh, beginning his 28th year at the helm of South End schools, has but one starter from his 1954-55 quint available in Guard Galen McGregor this evening.

Having knocked off powerful Richmond last Tuesday to indicate ;he seriousness of their designs on the Southern Conference title, the Generals now go against West Virginia's conference champions. Not since 1932 has a W&L team downed the Mountaineers in basketball • and Coach Billy McCann says he's far from confident the .all Generals can maintain the 'orm that carried them past Rich mond 78-76. Must Stop Hundley However, McCann thinks he cnows what WiL has to do to win —"Stop Rod Hundley." In three games against the Generals lasl year, Hundley averaged 28.7 Mints. Before beating Richmond, Washington & Lee had whipped Bridgewater 103-67. West Virginia de- 'eated Carnegie Tech 92-79, thei: >assed its first serious conference :est by downing Furman 85-71.

Wismer Picks Rams To Take Western Title By HARRY WISMER (Copyright, 1955 by INS) The lowly Chicago Cardinals settled the Western Conference race of the National Football League two weeks ago. That weekend, you remember they snapped the Chicago Bears six-game winning streak, 53 to 14. The Halasmen have been trailing Los Angeles ever since and should finish that way at season's end Sunday. . For the Rams should triumph over the visiting Green Bay Packers by something like, 30 to 28, and go into their first title game —with Cleveland—since 1951. Even a tie can clinch it for Los Angeles whether the Bears win or lose. Just in case the Packers turn the tables, th" Bears will be going all-out to beat Philadelphia at Wrigley Field, and should by a 31-to-17 score. Here are my other picks: Baltimore 21, San Francisco 18 . Colts gallop off with third place. Cleveland 28, Chicago Cards 24 . . Browns in exhibition. Detroit 21, New York 14 ... It's Doak Walker day. Washington 35, Pittsburgh 21. . . P irates can't out-do Steelers. Vikiugs' Splurge defeats Bayard Finding the range for 21 points n the final quarter, Petersburg High marked up its second bas \etball win in as many starts by vhipping Bayard, 57-44, last nigh at Bayard.

A ed-hot shooting spree by the Vik ngs while Bayard could muster nly eight markers spelled the lifference.
