UConns Get First Yankee Conference Test Saturday Storrs, Conn., Oct. 12—Connecticut's football team gets its first Yankee Conference action Satui'day when it travels to Orono to take on a rejuvenated Maine eleven. Soundly beaten last week bv a Springfield College squad described by Coach J. O. Christian as "one of the strongest teams in New England," the UConns will be up against a team fresh from a 26-1-3 victory over New Hampshire, the defending conference champion. Maine showed by that triumph that it has the ability to bounce back (the Bears had been beaten, 35-0, by Springfield the week before) . Earlier in the week, Christian had said that the UConns would have to be in top shape to beat Maine Saturday. Up to now it looks like the UConns may go into the game in better physical condition than at any other time this fall. Back in the lineup for Connecticut will be George Bleuher, the veteran Winsted guard who was missed BO much against Springfield. Bleuher was felled by a bad cold early last week. His strength returned, the 190-pounder will be ready to go again Saturday. St-v- eral other UConns, hampered by minor ailments all last week, are fully recovered and will be ready for full-time -duty against Maine. , Contact work in big doses has been Connecticut's lot all week, with Christian seeking-an offensive combination that will click. Just as the week before the emphasis has been on the aerial game in which the UConns still are weak, despite the fact that they scored against Springfield via the air. Christian also put a lot of time in on pass defense, another weak department lor the UConns. COACHED UNBEATEN TEAM Worcester, Mass.—Bart Sullivan, ' head trainer and famed track coach, directed the Crusaders to their only unbeaten and untied season. Back in 191S, Bart's team played two games. Big Ten Reported Unhappy Over Rose Bowl Pack Tie-Up (By United Press) It's reported that the Big 10 is unhappy over its Rose Bowl tie-uu with the Pacific Coast conference. The report was carried in a national publisation. It says a majority of Big Ten schools favors dropping the Rose Bowl pact when it expires Jan. 1. 1951. This publication reports that the Minnesota president, Dr. J. Louis Merrill, is heading Big Ten opposition to any renewal of the pact, which virtually guarantees that a Western Conference team will play in the Rose Bowl. Merrill is reported to nave three objections to the pact. They are: A.dded pressure on coaches to win, failure of the pact to improve over-all relations between the two conferences and failure of the agreement to prevent what he calls "sinning'- in athletic policies. The publication lists Ohio State, Illinois. Indiana and Purdue as supporters of Merrill's anti-pact stand. When asked about this report, Vic Schmidt, the Pacific Coast conference commissioner, had only guarded comments. "Since neither conference has discussed the matter," said Schmidt, "the question of renewing the pact hasn't been in order."

ONE Of THE BACKS /V Diitiltuted tjr Aint fuluia St&Sau id Second Ring Death In Week Recorded As Bussey Succumbs Detroit, Oct. 12 —(U P)— Death has hit the boxing ring for the second time within one week.

The Michigan boxing commission physician, Dr. Joseph Cahalan, says Bussey suffered a severe hemorrhage between the brain and the skull. WILDCAT WOW! Coach Paul Brown Angered Over Loss To San Francisco Threatens Shake-up Unless Club Bounces Back (By United Tress) Coach Paul Brown threatens to break up the Cleveland Browns if, as he put it, "they don't bounce back." Brown obviously still is boilini; mad over Cleveland's humiliating 56-28 loss to the San Francisco 49'ers on Sunday. It -.vas the first defeat in 30 ail- American Conference games for Ihe defending champs. And Brown thought it an unnecessary one. "It gripes me that we gave the 49'ers all those touchdowns," ox- plains the Cleveland coach. "We arent that bad a team. The players who made us look bad are on the spot from now on. Either they deliver, or else." Brown admits that the licking didn't surprise him too much. "We had this, beating coming,' he said. "We haven't been right all year." When asked to explain the loss, the Cleveland coach answered: "We played against the 49'ers as If we thought we could come back and take the lead any time we wanted to. But we were up j against a hungry ball club... and lost." Brown blames the defense, "It fell apart Sunday,' he says. He points out that the San Francisco pass receivers ran circles around his defense. I "The loss may have been a good • thing," says the Cleveland coach. | "Maybe now we'll snap out of it. If we don't bounce back against Los Angeles next Friday, I'm going to rack up' Wings, Bruins Clash In National Hockey Loop Opener Tonight Detroit, Oct. 12—(UP)—The National Hockey season swings into action tonight. The opener sends the Boston Bruins against the Red Wings at Detroit. These two teams pulled the only major trade of the off- season. Former Red Wing players Bill Quackenbush and Pete Horeck have broken into Boston's first line. On the other hand, the three players Boston gave up, Clare Martin, Pete Babando and Jimmy Peters, haven't been able to replace any of the Detroit regulars. George Boucher of Boston, the only new National League coach, says he's confident that Quackenbush and Horeck will start showing Ibcir stuff after one game. The other National League clubs open competition tomorrow. By Sunday night, all six clubs will have seen action. The Stanley Cup champion Toronto Maple Leafs are as confident as ever. "Sure the league is going to be tougher," says Manager Conny Smythe, "but 'reVja. lot tougher too." British Champion Decisions Mead London. Oct. 12—(UP)—Game but outmatched Pete Mead of Grand Rapids, Mich., lost a bloody ten- round decision last night to the middleweight boxing champion of the British empire, Dave Sands of Australia. The bout was held at Harringay Arena in London and the crowd of more than 10,000 stood and cheered Mead as he left the ring. Mead tired trying to trade punches with the heavier hitting Sands but almost snatched a victory with his clever boxing in the late stages of the fight. The American had his worst moment near the end of the sixth round when he was tagged with a right uppercut to the jaw. However, he stayed on his feet and Sands never could catch up to him again. Sands weighed in at 162 1-2 to Mead's 160 pounds.

They "set sill" tonight against the Provi- dfhce -Reds at Providence. The -home opening: is scheduled for 'tomorrow night when the Refls repay the visit at the Arena in tho Elm City. Coach Nell Colville, who shepherded, his flock of puck chasern into 'New Haven late Monday, and put them through a fast—despite the 80 degree heat—workout yesterday morning, regards the Reds hig-hly. But he's not (pessimistic and is looking for "thcne flrst two points in the new season." The fact that the Reds beat the Boston Braves 4-1 in an exhibition tends to increase the regard for the Rhode Islanders. Despite a knee injury being nulled by newcomer Wes Trainor, a eentt* "down from the Rangers, the Ramblers shape up well except fpr fi deficiency in manpower on defense.' As a result Steve Hrymnak, utility man, is likely to be behind the blue line tonight and also in New Haven tomorrow nisht. Major defenisitve factor in New Haven's favor is the presence off Emile. (Cat) Francis' in the nets. . Francis is rated as one of the top goal tenders in hockey, and that takes In the National League. Miguel Acevedo Decisions Dunn Hartford, Oct. 32—(UP)—Miguel Acevedo of Havana decisioned George Dunn of Hartford last night Jn a lack-lustre 10-round bout before 1,200 disgruntled customers. Referee Billy Couway gave the Cuban eight rounds and Dunn one, calling the remaining one even. There were no knockdowns and so little action that the official must have had a tough time determining who had the edge.
