Soccer Fans Take Sport Seriously In Argentina Santa Pe. Argentina, Nov. 8— (UP)—Soccer fans take the sport seriously in Argentina. When they yell "kill the umpire," they're not kidding. Referee Juan Aguirre of Buenos Aires found out, the hard way. Apuirre must feel he's lucky to tell about it. Aguirre was refereeing a game in Santa Fe, Argentina, Sunday between the Quilmes team of Buenos Aires and the Union team of Santa Fe. Quilmes was leading, .1-1, when some of the 10,000 fans decided the referee was favoring his hometown team. Fans swarmed onto the field, yelling "kill the umpire." They almost did. Aguirre was beaten up Bo badly he couldn't go home after the game. The crowd kept milling around the field until the police arrived. The cops broke up the riot with fire hoses and tear gas. When they inspected the damage. One spectator with a fractured skull, one policeman with a broken leg, and many others with lesser injuries. The teams didn't bother finishing the game.

Prices Mat: Adults 76c, Child 50c Eve: Adults $1.20, Child 50c Trinity Favored To Break Wesleyan's Nine-Year Reign Cardinals Last Hurdle In Way Of Unblemished Season (By United Press) Unbeaten Trinity is favored to top its toughest hurdle this Saturday when it runs up against its old nemesis, Wesleyan. This small-college classic at Hartford highlights Connecticut gridiron fare this week-end. The only other major football attraction will '-IP at Storrs where the University -if Connecticu- will entertain New Hampshire. Yale will play at Princeton, and Coast Guard at Renssel- xer. Trinity hasn't beaten Wesleyan in the last nine years. Three times unce Coach Dan Jessee took over he reins, his charges' chances of an unblemished season have been polled by the Cardinals. But this year :s expected to be different. Trinity has a stable of high-steppinq- bacKs who have rolled up one of the highest scoring averages in the nation. Wesleyan, on '.he other hand, has had a dreary reason and will bo the underdog Tor this all-important contest. Also in the doldrums is Yalo, which last Saturday was outplayed by Brown much more than its losing score of 14-0 would indicate. The Elis' next foe, Princeton, earlier this year beat the Bruins, 27'.-1. This indicates that the Blues will have to flash markedly-im- orovcd form to twist this Tiger's tail. Also faced with a tough task is Connecticut which will be the underdog against twice-beaten New Hampshire. The Huskies showed ilenty of sparkle in a masterful 23-0 win over their traditional rivals, Rhode Inland, last Saturday but the Rams didn't offer much in the way of a running attack. Coast Guard will close out a fair season when it travels to Worces- •er. Meanwhile, Arnold will take on the University of Bridgeport Friday, New Britain Teachers will entertain Lowell Textile, and New Haven Teachers will play host Fort Trumbull. to Writers Name Snead Golfer Of The Year Chicago, Nov. 8—(UP)—Sports broadcasters and writers have voted PGA champion Sammy Snead "golfer of the year."

Snead is the year's leading money-winner with almost $31,000 in PGA competition. Middlccoff is second with close to $25,000 in the till. Whelchefs Contract With Washington Redskins Canceled Washington, Nov. 8—(UP)—The Washington Redskins of the National Football league p.nd their head coach, John Whelehel, have parted company. Yesterday, a duo spokesman revealed' that Whelchel's I five-year contract, at a reported $25,000 per year, had been canceled by "mutual agreement." Line Coach Herman Baty will take over for the rest of the season. The Washington spokesman insisted that the retired vibe-admiral had not been fired. However, it was admitted, that Whelehel also had not resigned.' • i Apparently the 51-year-old Whel- ehel decided to ate p dovihi as Washington coach between halves of the Washington-Pittsburgh game Sunday afternoon. Between halves, he cleared the Redskin dressing room of everyone but players; Then, according to several players, he quietly announced, "This Is my last game, win, lose or draw. I'd like to win it." The Redskins rallied to win 2714. And the Washington players carried Whelehel from the field on their shoulders. The sudden end to VVhelchel'a coaching career with the Redskins was somewhat less surprising than when lie was named coach. When owner George Marshall announced last February that his new coach was John .Whclchcl, one newsman asked, "Who's he?" Whelehel was one of Navy's great- j est quarterbacks and he coached the Middies for two years. He 'iked the single wing formation and found trouble with the Redskins "T" style.
