Dec. 21 Intercollegiate football established attendance records thi fall far ex-nfd.r; the most optimistic predictions cf Its leaders, Perhaps rec-crds would have been broken re-gardless of caliber of competition in the rest-war era. but the number rt closely fought games, involving hundreds of former stars from military service, vicre worthy of this airport. Attendance records fell in all sec-t. -s cf the nation, but the Western conference and Notre Dame, as usual, led. The Eig Nine also pro vided a secondary feature when it esrreed to a five year contract with t!e Pacific Coast conference to com-r-ete in the Rose bowl. Since 1920 ro Western conference team has teen permitted to play in a bowl arr.e. Combat Professionalism The underlying reason for abrogation cf the Ions standing restric tion points up the battle in colle giate ranks against professionalism. Mary have docried the tendency to iliT the amateur restrictions. Several ears ago. the Southeastern conference permitted monetary pa' in addition to tuition, room, and board to its athletes. Removal c residence restrictions for transfer students permitted recruiting formerly Illegal. There followed a barrage cf accusations that many men thr-n were subsidized. The Western conference deter-r -e .1 la return to its former regu lations and will have completely done so by next spring. The Fa cific Coast authorities agree with the program. Thus, the Rose bowl agreement becomes a first step in a national drive to force other universities to adhere to the same rules. It has removed a source of i-.-crre for universities which frequently u?ed the money, it was asserted, to secure athletes. The members of the Ivy league, as well as Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Marquette. Michigan State, and members cf the Eig Six conference, also are in accord with these regu- la'ions. In short, the battle for amateurism now has definite boundaries. Irish National Champions Vn defeated Notre Dame was ac- claimed rational champion over Army altho these teams played a sroreless tie in New York's Yankee stadium. This contest, altho it did rot settle the title, was undoubtedly the most talked about game of the I ear. The tie permitted Army to continue to its three year record, al-thi the Cadets narrowly escaped defeat in their final contest with Navy in Philadelphia's Municipal stadium before 102,000, the biggest crowd of the year. Army staved off Navy' final drive en its 5 yard line as time ran out and won. 21 to 18. Incidentally. Navy's brilliant play In the second half it hau lost seven consecutive before that afternoon qual- i:s as the surprise of the season Georgia, Southeastern conference champion, and U. C I A., unde leted winner in the Pacific Coast conference, were other major teams with perfect records. Neither, by fi limitations of schedules, could displace Notre Dame and Army in rational ratings. North Carolina, was the winner rf the championship In the South-cm conference. The Tar-Heels were vh.pppfi by Tennessee of the South-et conference. Pennsylvania, by v;rr:':rg from its traditional foe Cornell. 2b to 20, tied with Yale and Harvard for Ivy league honors.

TORONTO, Ont Dec. 21 (TP) The Toronto Maple Leafs scored a sixth victory in seven National Hockey league meetings with Chicago this season in defeating the Blackhawks, 3 to I, before 12,679 in Maple Leaf Gardens tonight. The triumph, the Leafs' fourth in a row, enabled them to strengthen their hold oni the league lead, and the defeat dropped Chicago deeper into the cellar. The Hawks, who have won only one of their last nine games, will attempt to improve their sorry record in Chicago Stadium tomorrow night, when they will be hosts to the Boston Bruins. Chicago has won. lost, and tied in three earlier meetings with Boston. I .ears Rally to Win To achieve their victory, the Leafs came from behind with two goals in the second period and one in the third. Toronto never stopped hustling after the Hawks took a 1 to 0 lead in the first period when Red Hamili fired a shot past Goalie Turk Broda at the 13:47 mark. But it wasn't until nearly 15 minutes of the second period had elapsed that the Leafs pulled level. Gaye Stewart tallied the goal that tied the score and, with only 20 seconds in the period remaining, the Leafs shot in front when Nick Metz fired from 15 out to beat Paul Bibeault, Chicago goalie. Douj- Bentley In Fight The Leafs third goal came at 16:16 of the final period, Harry Watson driving the puck past Bibeault after he and Syl Apps had broken away. Garth Boesch shot Apps the puck at center ice and, as the Leaf center crossed the blue line, he passed to Watson, who let go with a sizzling shot that Bibeault had no chance to handle. A brief fight between Boesch and Doug Bentley enlivened the final period. The combatants were separated before many, blows were struck. CANADIENS WIN, 6-1 MONTREAL, Que., Dec. 21 (JT) Ripping thru a weak and disorganized Boston defense almost at will, the Montreal Canadiens tonight routed the Bruins, 5 to 1. to tighten their grip on second place in the National Hockey league standings and stay within three points of the league leading Toronto Maple Leafs. A crowd of 10,665 turned out to see the Canadiens maintain their superiority over the Bruins, who have managed only one tie in five nmes with Montreal this season.

BY EDWARD PRELL Chicago Tribune Press Seryirel Cleveland, O., Dec. 21 Professional football's most dynamic, dramatic, and daffy, if you please, season comes to an end tomorrow after noon on the shores of Lake Erie. At stake is the championship in the All-America conference, which is winding up its Inaugural season with a meeting of its two titans the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Browns. They ran away and hid from all rivals in their respective divisions. And the Browns twice whipped the Yankees while winning 12 of their 14 conference assignments. The Yankees lost one other lo the reckless Rockets from Chicago, one of the six also rans. Browns Strong Favorites Because they turned back the Yankees, 21 to 7. and 7 to 0, the Browns are strong favorites to do it again and complete a spectacular season for Coach Paul Brown. Prep coach, college coach, service coach, and now pro coach, Brown has completed the cycle. Forty thousand or more fans, de pending on the weather, will sit in on the expected kill of the Yankees. They are placing their faith in Otto Graham, the black haired lad from Waukegan, who gives this city two fine pitchers. The other one is Bob Feller of the baseball Indians. Graham, onetime Northwestern star, is Cleveland's game breaker. The Yankees know this, because last month in New York Otto un snarled a scoreless tie in the second half by hurling a long one to Dante Lavelli. That Motley Can Go It Is Cleveland's speed, plus the hard running of Marion Motley. which the Yankees and their coafh. Silent Ray Flaherty, respect. But the New Yorkers are confident that they will be the All-America champions late tomorrow afternoon. Coach Brown has tried to combat overconfidence among his players all week. The Yankees have no long range passer to compare with Graham and their receivers are not up to Cleve land's standard. But they have a bigger, tougher line and an edge in experience. It's the Browns' T formation against the Yankees' single wing. With this system, Flaherty's Washington Redskins won two of three National league titles from the Chicago Bears. He has Ace Parker and Eddie Prokop to throw and run. He also has a full back, Orban Spec Sanders, rookie from Texas, who Is a long distance runner. lee Would Aid Brown If the field is icy, the Yankee defenders will be at a .disadvantage tryinff to stop Graham's downfield passes, because they will not be able to cut quickly. Once Lavelli or Mac Speedie gets a long one they are hard to stop from going all the way. Last quotations on the betting had the Browns favorites to win by 13',i points at even money, but If it becomes apparent the field will be dry they may go into the game with a 17 point edge. Clearing weather was predicted late tonight, but the mercury may get no higher than 30 degrees tomorrow, which would be an improvement on the zero weather which prevailed a year ago here when the Cleveland Rams whipped the Washington Redskins, 15 to 14, for the N. F. L. championship. Advance Sale Is 35,000 That experience made the Cleveland area fans wary of getting their tickets for tomorrow's game in advance. At that, the Browns' front office reported the sale was approximately 35,000. In seven conference home games on the same field this season the Browns averaged 58,000 spectators. t ! - .k3a m1 aC Mrwa i ii ii.wn J i Coach Paul Brown of the Browns (left) and Coach Ray Flaherty of the Yankees iron out a few details incidental to the championship game. This is Brown's first pro title test, but it is a familiar story to Flaherty, whose teams in the other major league frequently took divisional honors. s t 4 W Spearheading the attack of the mighty Cleveland Browns in their effort to capture the first All-America Football conference title when they battle the New York Yankees in today's final at Cleveland is Quarter Back Otto Graham, former Northwestern star.

Radio Broadcast WIND Illini Beaten by California Quintet, 53-35 Eerkeley, Cal., Dec. 21 VP) The University of Illinois basketball team, with four of its pre-war Whiz Kids in action, went down to its second defeat of the week when the University of California Golden Bears scored a 53 to 35 upset tonight. In their first, meeting last night Illinois whipped California by 22 points 58 to 36. On the start of its western trip, in Kansas City Monday, Illinois lost to Missouri, 55 to 50, after winning three home games. The Bears amazed 7,000 spectators tonight by jumping into a 10 to 0 lend in the firnt Six minutes. Illinois, playing eiRht minutes without a score, never whs able lo catch up, as California controled both backboards thruout the first half and stifled the Illini fast break by a shifting zone defense. It was the first time this season the Illini were held to less than 50 points.

With the score tied at 42-all with seven minutes to play, Guard Bill Taylor put the Huskies out in front with a one-hander, and his running mate, Sammy White, sank two free throws to give Washington a margin it never relinquished.

C. L. A., paused two hours this morning in New Orleans as their special cars were switched to the Southern Pacific for the long trek west. In this time, however,-the Illini toured New Orleans and were directed by members of the New Orleans Winter Sports association which annually holds the Sugar bowl contests. Sam Corenswet, president of the Sugar bowl group, was joined by Jeff Cravath at the Illinois Central station. Cravath's Southern California team played Tulane in the after noon and he invited the Illinois squad to be his guests at the game and then travel to California with his group. Illinois, however, already was committed to the trip starting at 11:30 a. m. and arriving at 9 o'clock Monday morning. No Time Wasted for Drills Illinois is limited, of course, in the number of practice sessions and, when the itinerary for this trip was arranged. Elliot did not wish to use any of those days in a hap-hazard drill In New Orleans. The brief pause was eminently satisfactory and the weather was excellent. The football players, in charge of Matt Bullock and Capt. Mac Wens- kunas, visited the French quarter and the historic river spots as well as the residential sections near Tulane. Coach Eliot and Burt Ingwer-sen, line coach, were breakfast guests of the Sugar bowl committee at the St. Charles hotel. Bernie Krueger, quarter back who broke his leg in the last game of the season at Northwestern, did not make the trip. Altho he could not play, he had been invited to Pasadena. He decided to spend the holi days with his wife and young son, having been overseas last year, Illini Not Serious Yet The conversation today centered on the impending game with U. C. L. A. It was the consensus. nfter the talks with the Trojans, that so far Illinois has not taken the game seriously. This trip, of course, is not evidence for, in the week in California, the boys may catch up in their conditioning. Nothing can be done about it now. But when Eliot calls the boys to gether Monday afternoon, it is sure he will have a few pointed words on the subject. Members of this party are: ENDS Jim Valek, Joe Busceml. Don Maerhtle.

Bruins had their first test against Illinois offensive plays, as run off by the junior varsity, today at Spaulding field. The first three teams were used in the long scrimmage and handled v WILDCATS FIRST DEFEATJG-44 Blue Demons' Rally Beats Tar Heels BY MAURICE SHEVLIN PICTIRE ON NEXT PAGE Northwestern university's yours winning streak was snapped at four I last night by the Trojans of South-! ern California, who played a steady I brand of basketball and, led by their pre-war All-America center, Alex I Hannum, who scored 16 points. emerged on the large end of a 43 to 44 score in the feature of the Chicago Stadium's college double header. i De Paul university's five, trailing by 13 points with 12 minutes left. rallied to dffeat the University cf ! ixurm warouna, ou to in tne rirst game, which went into an period. The contests drew a cro-Aci of 8,702. The Wildcats' inability to count from the foul line played a big part in their first defeat of the season, as they missed 14 of 20 shots. Eut it was no fault of big Ben Schadler's that the Californians got away with it, for the Benton Harbor, Mich., guard rattled the hoop all night and left the floor with 18 points, IS of, which were pilfd up on fir-Id goals. Schadler received some help in this department from Chuck Tourek, wh j scored four times for eight points, and Joe Hughes, who collected seven points. X. U. Leads, 29 to 25 Schadler and Hannum were th big shots in the first half, which, closed with the Wildcats holding a 29 to 25 advantage after a ding-don? exhibition of speed and accuracy. Schadler counted five times from the floor and once from the foul line, a display which the big California center duplicated with under the basket shots. Rock put in his two cents' worth with four long baskets. 4 i while Bill Sticklin, Tourek. and Hughes each sunk a pair from the I. r. Jt- w ,.unal Bulwark of the Yankees' defense is Bruiser Kinard, a great tackle who shows he means business when going after a loose ball. The Browns' running attack will feature wide sweeps of Don Greenwood, once of the Illini. College Basketball LAST NIGHT'S RESULTS California, S3; Illinois. 35. Ie Paul, 60; N. Carolina. 53 overtlmel.

It was the Hoosiers' third consecutive defeat and Loyola's-second triumph in its last four games. The Ramblers, paced by Forward Jack Dee, who accounted for 23 points, led at the half, 30 to 29, but at no time during the game was either team able to build up over a five point lead until the final minutes of play. Score Tied Several Times 1 Indiana took the lead at the start of the second half but Loyola tied it up at 35 to 35. Three times more the game was knotted, the last time at 39-39, before the Hoosiers commanded a three point advantage. Baskets by Gerry Nagle and Ed Bogdanskl put Loyola out in front again and from that point the Ramblers were never headed. Dee climaxed his finest game for Loyola with five points in the closing minutes to clinch the contest. Wallace Top Scorer Forward Johnny Wallace paced the Hoosler attack with 24 points, high for thtj, evening. Dee was trailed on the Loyola ledger 9y Jack Kerris, who collected 10 points on four field goals and six free throws. Tomorrow night Loyola meets Fort Sheridan at Proviso while Indiana Invades Marquette in Milwaukee. Lineups: i 1! field. t Ed Mikan, "little" 6 foot S inch brother of last year's De Taul star. George Mikan, put on quite a show In the first game. Slow to get unOr way this season, Ed found himself in all departments of basketball. He not only scored 20 points but played a whale of a defensive game. The big Blue Demon center counted six times from the floor, two of his goals coming in the overtime along with one of his eight free throws for five of De Paul's nine points. Carolina Leads, 41 to 28 Trailing, 41 to 28, De Paul in 11 minutes pulled up to 48-47 with two minutes left. The score at the end of regulation time was 51 to 51. De Paul's Blue Demons seemed a bit outclassed in the first half cf the opening game and left the floor trailing, 34 to 21. principally thru the accurate hook shooting of Center John Dillon, who racked up five field goals and a free toss. Dillon made three of his fieli goals during a North Carolina spurt which saw the visitors score 11 straight points after De Paul had assumed a 12 to 9 lead. Dillon's mark: for the evening was next to Mikan's. He made 17 points on seven baskets and three free throws. Stump Taees Fast Rally Gene Stump's brilliant second half play was largely responsible for the Demons' great rally. Ih scored fiv times from the field and his last one sent De Paul ahead with only a minute to play. Jim Hamilton. Tar Heel guard, flipped in the tying basket with only 20 seconds left ta play.
