Three Yale Regulars Oat Of Tomorrow's Tilt With Holy Cross New Haven, Conn., Oct. 21—Tale ^yill play its biggest ball game of the 1949 season tomorrow In thfe Bowl -whe.n the on-the-rebound Bulldogs meet ponderous Holy Cross, the team with the biggest line in America. There is a lot of interest in this tilt and Yale Athletic Association officials predict that 35,0000 will be on hand to witness the 13th football meeting between the two institutions. Kickoff time is 2 p. m. Off to a good start by beating Connecticut and Columbia, Yale got in the way of Cornell's great championship club last Saturday and was beaten. But, the feeling is don't count the Ells out too quickly because Herman Hickman and his undersized, but willing pupils realize that the tiff with the Crusaders will determine just how good the team really is. The football fates have been a little unkind to usually jovial Herman and his staff this fall and this week has been no exception. Hert are the problems confronting the Bulldog mentor: 1—Ferd Nadherny, a three-year regular, is in the Yale Infirmary with mononucleosis and will not Play; 2—Vic Frank, also a regular since 1947, is out of action with a bad knee; 3—John Setear, another old hand and the team's leading pass catcher, has a possible shoulder separation which may keep him idle. On the brighter side of the picture—although it doesn't exactly compensate for the loss of three of the four men who are holdovers from Yale's last really good team, the 1946 powerhouse, is the return of Chuck Masters, a linebacker who was brilliant 'before being injured in the^Columbia game; and the running this week in practice of Bobby Raines, a loose-hipped senior who suddenly found himself against Cornell when he set up one Eli touchdown with a 78-yard kickoff return and scored the other after sparking a long march. He'll take Nadherny's place. Louis Fights At Hartford Tuesday Hartford, Oct. 21—Reservation.-: are pouring in fast and furiously for the exhibition bout to be staged at the Auditorium by former world's heavyweight champion Joe Louis Tuesday night. This is not just an ordinary exhibition match. Not a duel between Louis and a has-been picked for the occasion. Local promoter Lou Viscusi would have none of that; he wanted to be assured the undefeated world's champion would be willing to box with a man who wnuld give him an interesting duel. Such a man is Joe Dominic, a Holyoke heavyweight who ha? been fighting steadily. Only last Mondav he dropped a split decision to Eihve King. f»ist-ris!ng New York heavyweight, in Hoi- yoke's feature bout. Before that he had knocked out Tami Mauriello who once fought Louis in a title match. He also gave unbeaten Roland LaStarza and Bernie Reynolds busy evenings. LEAD LEAGUE The U. S.

The outcome of the game could very well hinge on the Naugatuck line, which has held four opponents to 60 points, or an average of 15 per game, while losing three and tying one. In winning three gnmc < ind losing one, Crosby has rolled up 89 points, an average of 22 per game. The Garnet forward will is small and comparitively inexperienced but ful! of scrap and aggresaive- nes. It outplayed the Derby and Wilby lines, held the Torrinqton line even and he 1 ,* SheTton to almost no gnin. forcing the runners to go outside. In every case they have been outweighed by their opponents. The Greyhounds' running attacl:, which was expected to be the team's outstanding feature, has had to take a back seat to the. line. All-State candidate Charlie Alegi has been running well, as has Bob- Ra.1 Coy. Ful\iack Bob White has shown flashes of power, but the squad has been unablfi to move steadily to the goal lino Against Shelton last week they rolled up eight first downs, but failed So Ipenetrrfe beyond the Shelton 40-yard line. The team has averaged but five points per gams in the four played to data. Coaoti George F. Goodwin ha^ emphasized blocking and tackling turning practice sessions this week. 1'he team was weak in both departments last Saturday. Gems Take Lead In Rubber Co.

UConns Banking On Walt Trojanowski Against Newport Storrs. Oct. 21—A lot of attention went this week to Walt Tro ianowski. as Connecticut's coaching staff propped the victory-hun crv UConns for Saturday's game with the Newport Naval Training Station. Trojariowsk , b v -way of explana Hon. was the fullback who pullet the UConns out of the fire against Maine last week and brought them through to a last-minute tie with the insDired Black Bears. But even if Trojanowski had done nothing last week, he would still be remembered for his performance in 194f when he led the UConn to a banner season and the nation in scoring "The Troj" tallied 22 times that season on his powerhouse running Back after a two-season absence he proved disappointing in the first three games, and it seemct that he was over the hump for good. But suddenly '"The Troj' has come back. He's not the olc "Tro.i", to be sure, but he already has helped and it looks as if he might help some more. This week the coaching staff has- been concentrating on Trojanow passing, hoping to get him %afll '•.o something like his maximun effectiveness. The Bridgeport full back Kept opponents off balance in 1945 when he ran up his 132 points for the UConns; thus the Connect icut coaching staff is making sure that he'll be at his passing best, or as near to it as possible, for the games ahead. Larger Number Of Game Birds Available The u[p;land shooting- season in Connecticut for pheasants, imffed grouse and gray squirrels opens toirjorrow and extends through November 26. On the 39 State- regulated hunting areas which are scattered throughout the state he shooting day starts one-halt hour before sunrise and closes at sunset. The daily bag limit for pheasant!* and grouse is two, the season limit 15. A law passed in the 1949 session of the Legislature legalizes the shooting of hen pheasants for the Irst time since the introduction of :hese birds to Connecticut in 1908. This change in policy will have a marked effect both on the stocking and hunting. The number of birds at present contracted for will exceed any previous stocking n the state. The Fish and Game Department now has contracts for about 35,000 pheasants for delivery i;rior to and during- the shooting seaiion. Thirty-ftve cooperating clubs will release 8500 additional birds raised in their jsarintr pens from six-week-old birds supplied by the Fish and Ga>mte Department. Since these birds are" all legal targets, hunters should have a better expectancy of 'bagging a stocked bird this year than ever before. Favorable weather conditions last winter and this spring brought a considerable number of bird!* through the winter, and spring stocking by the Department of approximately 6500 hens and cocks should add a conlsidera.ble number of naturally produced pheasants to those being stocked at the, present time. All ibirds released by the partmient or under its supervision are being tagged with aluminum leg bands. On recovery, these bands should be returned either to the wardens or sent into the Fish and Game office in Hartford. The return of pheasant bands in past years has been useful in determining the dates and places of release in successive years in order to obtain the greatest efficiency in terms of stocked birds recovered by the hunters. On regulated shooting areas a hunting permit is required in ad^ dition to the regular hunting license. These permits arj_ issued free of charge by Issuing agents on or near the areas. The number of permits to be issued daily to visiting hunters is listed in order to protect the interests of the landowner and to prevent hunting in exccsis. of the capacity of the land. Agent in the Naugatuck area is Horace Baker, Bristol street ext Platts Mills. Rebels May Seek Federal Injunction Against Washington Richmond, Va., Oct. 21—(UP)— The owner of the Richmond Rebels of the American Professional Football League says he intends to hold the Washington Redskins responsible for signing Rsbel center Joel Williams. In a telegram sent to Redskin owner George Preston Marshall Rebel owner Harry Seiboid says, "We expect to hold you and the Washington Redskins responsible and liable for full damages resulting from your interference withe our club." Sei'bold said in his telegram that the rebels have not released the 220-pound center and are not waiving any rights under his contract with the Rebels. The Rebel owner said Williaims has already missed two very im- p-ortant practice sessions, and is badly needed in what he called "a very important game" Sunday in Richmond with the WilkeS-Barre Bullets. A win over the Bullets would ,put the Rebels in first place. Seiboid says he will seek a federal injunction to keep the Redskins from using Williams. NOT FROM CATS It takes 11 lambs to supply "cat gut" for one tennis racket. , Community Softball leape Championship To Be Decided Sunday The Post Office and Platts Mills will clash Sunday afternoon in a ^layoff for the chRtnnionship of 'he Community Softball League. Post Office won the first round title by defeating Mad River and Pond HAll in a layoff series. Platts Mills eliminated the mail carriers and then Pond Hill to cop the second round title. The game is slated for 2 o'clock on diamond four at Recreation Field. Bill Dunn will be on the hill for Post Office and Pat Galullo will toss them for Platts Mills. S. Carolina Upsets Clemson, 27-13 Columbia, S. C,, Oct. 21—(UP) Quarterback Bo Hagan inspired, hib South Carolina teammates to a brilliant fourth-q-uarter comeback and a 27-13 victory over Clemson yesterday. The over-capacfty crowd of 35,000 went crazy as Hagan, Il'mping on n. bad knee but passing with perfection, supplied the .victory »park in the annual State Fair classic in Columbia. It was all tied up 13-13 in the fourth period when Hagan pas'ed •iO-yards to South Carolina end Jim Pinkerton for one touchdown and plunged two yards for another. Clcmson's battered forces couldn't match it although they were near the goal when the game ended. Clemson wingback Jack Calvert scored first fromi the South Carolina 14 yard line. Then, in the second period, ho posH/od 16 yards to end Glenn Smith for six more 'points Tommy Chandler missed thn extra-point. South Carolina didn't get' moving until halfback Steve Wadiak 'streaked 57 yard's on a punt return. A few plays later,. Hagan went over from the three on a quarterback sneak. Tackle Bill Killoy missed the conversion but made the others. Later in the second period, South Carolina halfback Harry Deloacli set up another score by intercepting a pass. Halkback SteVe Wadiak bucked over from the six to tie it up and that ended the scoring until Hagan's great fourth-quarter performance.
