The eight clubs, including the "X" for departed Miami, each ricked 15 athletes whom they hope to bring into the conference. Earlier in the week, at New York the 10 National league teams each selected 30 flayers. Despite this difference In the total COO to 120 the rival organizations overlooked none of the outstanding lads who roamed college gridirons last fall. Which team gets which player now is in the hands of the greenbacks. Trippl Is Rich Trle One of the showdown fights revolves around Charley Trippl, the Pennsylvania lad who gravitated to Georgia. This All-America half back will draw a bid from the New York Yankees of the All-America. Also in the running for Trippl are the Chicago Cardinals, who hope to greet him next summer at their Waukesha, Wis., training camp, The Yankees' owner, Dan Topping, Is confident lhat Trippl will listen to his overtures. Charley also is a baseball player, position short-Mop. Mr. Topping, being part owner el the New York baseball Yankees, can guarantee the Meet Italian employment during the summer on the diamond and in the fall on the gridiron. The Boston Braves also are bidding for Trippi's baseball services. Card Will Pursue Him r.lg leau baseball tennis frown f n their jounj; nieri doubling In football of its physical hazards. This is expected to give the Yankees a fine bargaining point. But the Cardinals will have representatives in New Orleans, where Trippi and his Georgia associates will battle North Carolina in the Suirar bowl on New Year's day. The Chicago Rockets drew negotiating rights to Johnny Lujack, the T formation quarter back of Notre Dame's national collegiate champions. The Rockets laid claim to Johnny even tho they strongly mspect that the young man will he throwing footballs for the Irish next fall. Lujack also is on the draft list of the Chicago Bears. In addition to Lujack, the Rockets picked these nine: Fred Negus, Wisconsin center; George Sullivan, Notre Dame tackle; Bob Livingston, Notre Dame back; Jim Phair, Auburn center; Bob Sandberg, Minnesota quarter back; Bernie Gallagher, Penn tackle; Bob Derleth, Michigan tackle; Ed Allen, Penn full back, and Matt Bolger, Cornell end. Others Reveal Choices Three others of the seven active clubs revealed their draft list. This was a better percentage than in the N. F. L. draft, when only three of the 10 clubs came out in the open. Most of the teams prefer to keep their choices private to gain an edge in negotiation and likewise to escape embarrassment if a rival lands a coveted performer. San Francisco has laid claim to Glenn Davis, Army's great half back. The 43-ers also selected Bob Wiese Michigan back; Clyde Le Force, Tulsa tack; Paul Drake, Georgia Tech center, and Jack Zilly, Notre Dame end. The Yankees also will negotiate with Een Raimondi, a back from Indiana; George Strohmeyer, Notre Dame center; Monte Moncrief, Texas A. & M. tackle. Brooklyn Wants Illanrhard Rrooklyn will be ready to talk business with Felix Elanchard, Army full back, if he seeks such employment. The Dodgers also put on their list Neill Armstrong. Okla horrra A. & M. end, and FriU Barzi-lauskas, Yale guard. Later in the tfav the conference began discussing the application ofjMrintrr home in the slightly slow Baltimore to fill the vacant spot In "me or r:iu j-d on a iracK auneu oy an early shower. It was Buzfuz's first start since mid-November when he ran second to Recce at the Jamaica charity meeting in New York. His r.econd today paid his owner $2,000 the amount for which he was originally purchased and boosted his total earnings to $117,9.15. The 10,000 paid spectators bet 5030,011. GUKKIX WINS TWO New Orleans, La., Dec. 21 (JP) John B. Theall of Abbeville, La., had a big day at the Fair Grounds today when his horses won two races. Theall's gelding Brown Mogul won the $1,600 Tulane purse, which was followed by his Michigan Kid's victory in the $5,000 featured Pelican handicap. The veteran Eric Guerin scored with both winners." During most of the route of the six furlong Tulane purse, .Guerin allowed Epinaza and the favorite Koviarose to fight it out for the lead, then spurted ahead to score a handy victory. Brown Mogul paid $7.60 for $2. Koviarose finished second, a few inches ahead of Double Feature. Epinaza was fourth. Michigan Kid went to the front at once in the mile and 16th feature and held William Ilelis' Earshot to second place by a head in a game performance.

Orage, Chalupa ran. Cleveland Browns. No wonder Coach Paul Brown believes the former Northwestern university pass master is the key to victory over the New York Yankees in the first All-Amer ica conference championship game tomorrow afternoon. So much was written about Glenn Dobbs, the Brooklyn passer, that it was a statistical surprise when Graham finished in the first place among A. A. C. hurlers. Otto also outpitched Frankle Albert, Charley O'Rourke, Hunchy Hoernschemeyer, Ace Parker and Angclo Bertclli. "Great Team riayer" But Brown was not thinking only of Graham's passing. "Otto is an outstanding team player," Brown said, "and he is an invaluable defensive man. A wet field greatly reduces the value of some T forma-1 tion quarter backs. Not Graham.! Take away his passing, and we still benefit from his sure ball handling and tackling." Twice this year Graham's tackles averted Cleveland defeats. In New York, the Yankees Spec Sanders broke loose for 40 yards on the second running play. Graham, the safety man, stopped Spec and the Browns won, 7 to 0. Against San Francisco, Graham hauled down Norm Standlee under almost identical conditions. " Sanders and Standlee ranked one-two in rushing among the league ball carriers," Brown pointed out. " Yet in clutch plays Graham stopped them" in the open field. What more can you ask from a safety man?" The remarkable aspect of Gra ham's passing is the dearth of costly interceptions. Only five of his 174 throws were captured by the enemy. But then. Otto seldom gave anything away in college, cither. He hit 'M of 29 receivers against Michigan in 101,1. His three year average at Northwestern was 157 hits in 321 shots. Overwork a Worry Brown's greatest worry this fall was not Graham's accuracy, but the danger of a sore arm thru overwork, Otto has been specializing on long looping throws to the extremely fast ends, Mac Speedie and Dante Lavelli. They race down field at full speed and Graham gives them a long lead. "Naturally," Brown said, "that type of pass requires practice. I've been wondering which would give out first Graham's arm or Lavelli's legs." Graham compares the technique to the quick break offense in basketball he was an All-American in 1943. "You grab a rebound and hook a pass down the floor. If it's good, you score. Same thing in football. Hit Lavelli or Speedie when they're running fast and you get six points. It takes a lot of running, but that's their department." Ace Parker, the Yankee pitcher, has an even more remarkable interception mark than Graham. Only three of Ace's 115 throws were intercepted. However, Parker averaged only 6.6 yards per toss to Graham's 10.6. Ace's short flips like Sammy Baugh's are less vulnerable to enemy action. j l end Kept Going j The rival league comedians keep the feud going. At the National league meeting in New York last Tuesday, the comment on Miami's financial collapse was: "The National league is drafting players and the All-America is drafting owners. Miami gets first pick." The All-America counter, referring to the attempted gambling fix of a national league championship game, popped today: "We are playing for the world championship. The National league? They played for the underworld championship."

'46 BRINGS EVIL DAYS FOR HAWKS AND ADHERENTS BY EDWARD BURNS The 1915-'46 National Hockey league season ended on last April 6 when the Montreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins, 6 to 3, their fourth victory out of rive games in the final round for the Stanley cup. The 1946-'47 season opened in October and at this writing this first 60 game schedule of the league is only a few games past the third of the way mark. Thus, in the period of sports reviews the hockey writer is caught with the last complete season long since ended and the new season not along far enough to offer any conclusive clues. Perhaps instead of reviewing, say, the Stanley cup play-offs of last March and April, it will be permissible to shed a few tears for the present plight of the Chicago Black-hawks. A year ago as the happy Hawks concluded their Christmas shopping, they were tied for first place with the eventual cup winners, the Canadiens. The first four scorers on the league's individual point list were Blackhawks. Bentley Wins Trophy Max Bentley, who went on to win he Hart trophy as the league's most useful player, was burning up the league, come Christmas time. Immediately following him on the high scoring lists were his teammates, Bill Mosienko and his brother, Doug Bentley. Fourth was Clint Smith. Later on Mosienko was knocked out of 10 games thru injuries, and Doug Bentley was out of 14. Despite the loss of his teammates and injuries which kept him out of three games himself, Max Bentley finished the season as high point man with 61. Other Hawks high on the list were Smith, who finished fourth with 50 points in 50 games; Mosien-ko, with 48 points in 40 games; Alex Kaleta. with 46 points in 49 games; Pete Horeck, with 41 points in 50 games, Doug Bentley, with 40 points in 36 games, and Red HamilL with 37 points in 38 games.

J., July 2, 1921. injuries in the late weeks of the regular season, the Hawks finished the season in third place, topped only by Montreal and Boston. And they outscored Montreal In the season total, 200 to 172, and had a wider margin over the Bostoi total, which was 167. In the 50 game schedule the Hawks won 23 games and tied 7. They usually were invincible on their home ice, where thejr set an all-time attendance record of 410,-000. On Jan. 20, 1D46, the Hawks set a world paid attendance record lor one game when 19,749 were packed into Chicago Stadium. Yes, the Hawks had a great season in 1945-'46, even tho they won neither the league championship nor a game in the Stanley cup playoffs. A few changes here and there, it seemed, and 1946-'47 would be even a more spectacular success. Ticket patrons were eager while the Hawk heads were being put off guard by smugness or contentment, at least. They virtually rioted tor locations, not for a game but for every home game. The attendance remains amazing. AH the rest of the glowing picture has thus far been a dismal flop. As Ihese words are set down the Hawks have won only one of their last 10 games. They have gone thru six games without a victory. A year ago right now they had not lost in six engagements. Kelied on Farm Club The Hawk management had relied upon its farm club in Kansas City for replacements, but the Kansas City team proved a flop, too. This did not halt a lot of commuting between the two last place clubs, with no appreciable help to either outfit. Early in December Bill Tobin, Hawk president and new majority stockholder of the club, announced he had $100,000 to spend for talent help. His offer of cash met deaf ears, but in mid-December he did complete a deal which brought Adam Brown to the Hawks and sent Pete Horeck to the Detroit Red Wings. Last season Brown scored 20 goals and 11 assists; Horeck scored 20 goals and 21 assists. At this early stage it does not seem likely the Hawks will be able to make the Stanley cup play-offs the last two clubs are eliminated!. But the management is not likely to get caught with its pads down as it did last season, the rebuilding period. Paris Names 50 for Bribe Charge Trial New York, Dec. 21 (P) A parade of witnesses, including Mayor William O'Dwyer and 10 young models, will be called to testify at next Tuesday's trial of Alvin J.
