Football Briefs YALE New Haven, Oct. 26—(UP)—Flvo Yale gridsters are sidelined with illness or injuries, but two others are reported back in shape. Those out of action include first stringers Ferd Nadhcrny, a fullback who is sick, and Vic Frank, a guard who hurt his knee. Returning to action, and expected to be readv for Dartmouth Saturday, are Win Lovejoy and Jack Lohnes. WESLEYAN Middletown — Former Wesleyan end Stubby Haylcs is showing up well in a new role. Hayles has been converted into a halfback because of his speed. He starred both offensively and defensively during a scrimmage as the Cardinals prepped for American International.

F alleys. Naugatuck High school football fortunes are finally beginning to take a turn for the better. Although the squad has yet to break Into the win column In five james this year, they have shown more spirit and determination than any ; squad since the days of the late Peter J. Foley. When the Greyhounds tied an over-rated Crosby 11, 7-7, last- Saturday, many local prognosticates caught a glimpse' of better things to come. Naugatuck has four games remaining on their slate, four games which may very easily be four victories. Starting with tomorrow afternoon's encounter with Wilbur Cross, of New Haven, the Garnet and Grey combine faces three opponents who at best are only their equals. The final, and big game of the season, will be against an Ansonia High team which is a fat- cry froni the powerhouse elevens of recent years. Cross Unimpressive Cross has had a so-so season which has seen them appear not too impressive. They recorded a victory over Wilby, a team which tied Naugatuck 6-6. with both teams far from Impressive, and defeated Leavenworth, 6-2, in another unimpressive performance. Last year Naugatuck rallied for a touchdown in the final period, made good on the extra point and then held on to edge out the New Haveners, 7-6. This year's Cross team has shown far less ability than their predecessors. Charlie Alegi, who sustained a bruised leg muscle early in the Crosby game Saturday, is expected to be ready to start in his regular right halfback slot. However, It is expected that Bryant Kirkendall, second string quarterback who injured his leg in practice last week, will not be ready. The rest of the squad is in shape for the game and should line up as follows: Bill Matos and Jack Carroll will be at the ends, Ken Clymer and Bud DiMaria at tackles, with Jack O.'Brien and George Mitchell holding down the guard posts and Don Fowler at center.

Against Crosby the locals completed six of nine passes, their best average, of the year.

Both ran well, particularly Rabtoy, who time and again broke -through on runs which brought the Naugatuck rooters to their feet.
