PAGE 6—XACGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), TUESDAY, OCT. 25, 1049 Greyhound JV's Nip Seymour, 6-0, At Recreation Field Deacon Clisham Scores Fourth Period TD The Naugatuck High school Junior Varsity football team avenged an early season setback yesterday afternoon, by downing the Seymour high seconds. 6-0, at Recreation Field. Seymour had defeated the locals, 12-6, at Seymour !n the opening game of the Naugatuck Valley Junior Varsity Grid League, three weeks ago. Deacon Clisham scored the Jon-3 touchdown of the game midway through the final quarter, going over the goal line on a fourth down quarterback sneak, from one foot out. The plunge climaxed a drive from the Seymour 33-yard line, where the locals had recovered a fumble. Clisham Scores Fullback Manny Matos and halfback Jimmy McCann alternated to bring the ball from the 33 to the 14 on four plays. Matos plowed off tackle for a first down on the nine and McOann went to the three. Two cracks at the line brought the ball to the one foot line as the Seymour forward wall stiffened. Then, Clisham, who has picked up the required yardage on every quarterback sneak tried this season, carried the ball over. McCann's placement for the extra point was wide. Seymour took the following kickoff with less than three minutes to go and passed their way to within the Naugatuck 20 yard line, where they lost the ball on downs. With four seconds to go a mixup in the Naugatuck backfield resulted in a fumble and Seymour took over. One pass went incomplete and with one second to go, a second pass was intercepted by McCann on the five-yard line. He raced back to the Seymour -15 before being brought down by the last two Seymour defenders. The first half saw the squads battle back and forth, with neither able to open a touchdown drive. Late in the third period th» locals drove from their own 35 to the Seymour 15, where the visitors intercepted a pass to halt the drive as the fourth period opened. The Wildcats then moved to their 33 where Naugatuck recovered the fumble which started them on their touchdown drive. The win gives Naugatuck a record of two wins, one loss and one tie in four league games. Clisham, Matos and McCann excelled for Naugatuck in the backfield. Eddie White and Dick Monaghan stood out in the line. PKOBATE NOTICE District of Naueatuck, ss. Probate Court. Oct. 19. i!)4!». Estate 1,1 James DeCarlo. late o( Naugatuck. in said district, deceased.

UConn Alumni Forms Club To Raise Funds For Scholarships Hartford, Oct. 25—(UP)—A "buck- a-month" club is being organized by University of Connecticut alum- ai to raise money for athletic scholarships. Letters have been sent by the "B-A-M" club to alumni, asking for contributions of 12 a year for what is described as "a sickly athletic situation." The club was launched shortly after Connecticut's head football coach, J. O. Christian, was criticized by a student group for not producing enough victories. It is understood, however, that \:he organization was proposed before 'he wolves started calling for Christian's hide. The leter states, "It is a worthy project for needy young men, and one that must be adopted if we are to compete in the league we are being forced to play in." It adds that the organization hopes to feed to the university what it calls a "select group of boys who are both good students and outstanding athletes." It explains that >t will not "risk any scholarships in prospects who fail to meet entrance requirements." The club takes pa;ns to point out that it is connected with neither the university administraion nor the athletic association. It reveals that it already has several freshmen prospects at Storrs. The group hopes to raise $12,000 year. It terms it "an investment which guarantees a dividend in the form of personal satisfaction due and payable e^ch fall."

Greyhounds Rated Even Choice With Vilbur Cross Eleven Naugatuck High School's Grey- icunds,. after battling favored Crosby to a 7-7 tie Saturday after- -ocn, will step out of the role of he underdog for the first time ince Oct. 1, when they tackle Wil- Mir. Cross, of New Haven, Thursay • afternoon at 3 o'clock at Recreation Field. In outplaying Crosby for more nan three periods, the Grey- lounds had an apparent victory natched from their grasp when -ro'sby rallied to tie the score with inly 13 seconds left to play. The ipirit and determination they bowed in battling their heavier, more experienced opponents to a tandstill foretold of better things o come on the local grid scene. Wilbur Cross, formerly New laven Commercial, will come to he borough seeking to avenge a -8 setback administered by the Garnet and Grey last season. The win was the first for the locals ince Oct. of 1945 and marked the ast time they broke into the win column. The visitors have a so-so record jut have shown flashes of a powerful offense. They defeated Leavenworth and Wilby High Schools of Waterbury, but will be rated no more than even choices against the . scrappy Greyhounds. Bryant Kirkendall, who suffered a badly bruised leg muscle in a scrimmage last week, and Charlie Alegi, who also suffered a bruised leg against Crosby, are both expected to be ready for Thursday's tilt.' Kirkendall missed the Crosby awe and Alegi's running was very greatly handicapped. With the team at full strength and showing the same spirit and aggressiveness that they displayed against Crosby, it is very possible they will chalk up their first win of. the season.

Hilltoppers Have Rolled Up 216 Points (By United Press) Grid fare for Connecticut football fans this Saturday will be tlrovided principally by high-scoring Trinity and low-scoring Yale. The Hartford club, the, only undefeated team in Connectcut, plays host to Worcester Tt>en. Yale, after squeaking past Holy Cros>3, will entertain pnce-toeaten Dartmouth. The only other major collegiate action will be at New London where Coast Guard will take on well Textile. The university of Connecticut will travel to Kent State in Ohio, and Weslcyan will endeavor to regain its winning stride at American International n Sprigfleld. New Have Teachers, unbeaten until knocked off by the University of Bridgeport last Saturday—will ourney to the New York Agges at F'armingdaJe. Bridgeport entertains Panzer, Arnold visits Adelphi at New Haven, and New Britain Teachers play host to New England college Friday night. Yale The Elis; who edged Holy Cross 14-7, appear "to be in for another )usy afternoon at the Bowl. The Dartmouth Indians', who have lost only to Penn this year, will be favored tOvAlch another scalp. The Blues' rurtning attack was func- .ioning well last Saturday, but Coach Herman Hickman must tighten ufi their aerial warfare which mis-fired many times. The high-flying. Trinity eleven, which has scored, a total of 210 points so far, is expected to maintain its hectic.pace. W-P-I reportedly has little reserve strength, as compared to the Hilltoppers wealth of material. Butdeflnitely not -• expected to keep up the [place is Connecticut, which still is a bit breathless after pulverizing Newport Naval Station, 125-0, one of the highest totals ever made in the nation. The slaughter occurred only a week after some students had expressed dissatisfaction, with the work of head coach 3, O. Christian. The Huskies' next opponent, Kent State, is expected '. to cause trouble, last year, you may recall, the Ohio outfit upset the U-Conns! Wesleyan is favored to win over A-I-C, which has won only two out of five this year. The Cardinals are smarting under their second defeat in nearly -three years, and their resulting loss of dominence in Little Three competition. Coast Guard is given a good chance of turning /back Ltowell Textile after its easy 26-0 win over Norwich. • TELL NEWSMEN OF WEDDING PLANS TODAY, WED. and T1IUKS.
