FACE 4—NACGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), FRIDAY, NOV. 4, 1040 Greyhounds' Hopes High As Leavenworth Tilt Draws Near Locals Sense Victory Over Weakened Tech Naugatuck High School's Greyhounds travel to Waterbury's Municipal Stadium tomorrow afternoon to take on Leaven*rorth High in a game which they hope will be the start of a three-game winning streak. The tilt is slated for 2 o'clock. Tech will be -weakened by the loss of four players, all injured in last week's Wilby game, and the locals plan to take advantage of the break. End Johnny StrileckiS; center Len Pirro, tackle Bill Longo and fullback Hugh Martin were all injured and at best are expected to see only limited action. Martin fa the Waterbury school's best running back and his absence would put a serious crimp in their chances for a victory over Coach George F. Goodwin's scrappy charges. Leavenworth outplayed Wilby last week but could manage on!y a 7-7 tie. Four times scoring drives bogged down within the Wilby 10- PRI. - SAT. - SUN. | FredM*MQRRJkY Mwreea O'HARA TATHER WAS A FULLBACK I • Gloi • *' •MIIXXT • *mnmO • JAMAI %; IN? _ Van JOHNSON SCENES CRIME Gloria DcHAVEN ArUne DA HI. • SAT . mm JAMAICA > °~ m*"* INN |lE«CHCOMtEI yard line. Tech faded badly in the second quarter after taking a 7-0 lead, allowing Wilby to come from behind to tie. A repitition against Naugatuck could prove fatal. The game will present the Greyhounds wilh one of their best opportunities of the season to record a victory. Touted as a pre-season powerhouse, Leavenworth has failed by far to live up to press notices and has won only two games, while losing three and tying one. Still, their record is more im presslve than that of the Garnet and Orev, which has lost three anc tied three in six starts. Next week the Greyhounds invade Seymour for a game with a Wildcat team which last year humbled them 22-13. Seymour is not nearly as strong this year as they were in 194£ and the locals should not have to much trouble with them After a week off, comes the big same of the season—the annual Turkey Dav classic with Ansonia, scheduled this year in Ansonia. The Ansonia rlub has been playing hot and cold all season. Last week they were trampled under a 59-6 score by New Britain. Early, the Lavender had tied a strong Stamford team, 12-12. That same Stamford team tied New Britain early in the season. Regardless of the outcome of the game, it is certain that Ansonia will not be able to repeat their 59-7 triumph of last year. ''' '•' • '^HVj Gettinc back to tomorrow's came. Charlie Alegi, the Grev- irt's leading gronndfrainer and Bob Rabtov, his halfback running mate, are in srood shape and nve expected to frive the Tech team plentv of trouble. Charlie has accounted for almost 300 yards by rushing this year in six games and s averaging almost five vards per carry, Rabtoy, after a slow start, has come along in the last th»-ei5 games and is nlso clipping off vardapre at a better than four-per carry clio. Bnb "Red" White, hard driving fullback, and Alan Crosswait. ouarterback, will round out the Greyhounds' bac.kfleld. Bill Mates and Jack Carroll are expected to start at ends, with Bud DiMaria and Ken Clymer or Eddie White at tackles, Jack O'Brien and George Mitchell at guards and Don Fowler at center.

The student senate says it will filed an official protest with President Albert N, Jorgensen, regarding the makeup of a!2-man investigating committee which he appointed earlier this week. The Senate objects particularly to the naming of Athletic Director Van Bibber to the group.

The student newspaper asks editorially today, "if this newspaper were being investigated, would the editor be appointed to the committee carrying out the investigation?" The Senate has decided to take a poll of student opinion on the athletic situation. The results won't be disclosed until after the football season. Another Senate resolution calls for discussion of the possibility of the U-Conns dropping from the Yankee conference. Some feel that conference restrictions on athletic scholarships, training tables, and che like are keeping Connecticut from becoming an athletic power.

Numbering nearly 2,000,000 boys and girls between the ages, of 10 and 21 years, they are enrolled in over 80,000 clubs throughout the United States, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and Porto Rico. Many of che other countries of the world have. 4-H clubs or similar organizations. "As a theme for 19-19, all 4-H club members worked for "Better Liv- ng for a Better World," says Whaples. "Connecticut 4-Hers have worked hard to put this theme into practice in 1949 and are aiming at an even better job in 1950. Connecticut residents can feel proud if the achievements of this state's 1-H members."

UConns Favored Over Rams In Annual Classic Tomorrow Storrs, Nov. 4—Ordinarily there wouldn't be much excitement over a game that brings together a team that hasn't won a game all season and another eleven that has been thrice-beaten, but when those teams are Connecticut and Rhode Island it's a different story. The Uconns and the Rams meet here tomorrow in the 38th renewal of a series that got underway back in 1897. This will be no ordinary setting, for the occasion, as it has been so many times in the past will be Alumni Homecoming Day at Connecticut, a day cherished by the old grads- and students alike Although Connecticut still is two games behind in the long series, the Uconns have had things pretty much their own way the past four times. The Uconns whipped the Rams 28-6 last year, 23-0 in '47 330 in '46, and 13-6 in 1941 In over their heads several times this year, the hapless Rams have htcle to show for their efforts thus far this season. The Rams have dropped games to Maine. New Hampshire, Brown, Massachusetts Temple and Springfield. Only once however, have the Rams been shutout. They scored 20 points against New Hampshire, 19 against Massachusetts, six against Temple and 13 in the Springfield defeat, more than the Uconns could do in losinjr to the Gymnasts^ ,' Connecticut has defeated American International and Newport N T.

The fight between the two young heavyweights originally was scheduled for December 9. The shift came after the collapse of negotiations for a. Jake La Motta- Robert Villemain flght. La Motta was scheduled to defend .his middleweight title December 2nd against Marcel Cerdan, who died last Friday in a plane crash.

H., Nov. 4— (UP)— Bungling amateurs are believed to have been behind the attempt to "fix" the sieventh race at llock- ingham Park October 24. Buckingham officials disclosed Wednesday that rubber sponges had been found in the nostrils of five of the nine horses in the race At first, it was believed to have been the job of a professional. But an investigation indicated tha job was the hasty work of amateurs. Track veterinarian Dr. Harold Lewis says he was able to remove the sponges with his fingers If an expert had done the job, Lewis explains, the sponges would have been driven far up the nostrils and a special probe would have been necessary to remove them. The evidence leads track officials to believe amateurs, perhaps trying to recover losses suffered during the year, are to blame.
