PAGE *—XAtJGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), FRIDAY, NOV. 11, 1940 Greyhounds Slight Underdogs For Tomorrow's Seymour Tilt 'Cats Shooting To Complete Season With Win S«ymour High school is a slight favorite to hand Naugatuck High's gridders their fifth defeat of the season tomorrow, when the teams collide at 2 o'clock at Seymour's French Field. The down-valley crew has not been beaten by the locals since the current series was started in 1946. Starting- football that year after a long layoff, Seymour tied the Greyhounds, came back to defeat them in 1947 and buried them 2813 last year. This year's Wildcat squad is a. small, light combine which relies mainly on speed. "Dapper" Dahn is their biggest offensive threat and Gene Bomba, another speeedy back, has been coming along in recent weeks and is expected to provide the locals with plenty of trouble. The 'Cats have a record of three •wins, two ties and three losses thus far this year. Tomorrow's tilt will be their last game of the season and they are bent on winning to provfde their new coaches, Joe Gesek and Don Heffernan with a winning season. Dahn Back Dahn missed Seymour's last game, with Wilby, due to an injured ankle, but will be back in action tomorrow. One Seymour lineman was also on the injured list last week, but he will be back tomorrow, also. The Wildcats have done little contact work this week, concentrating mainly on running in order to avoid more injuries. They are expected to be at full strength .for the clash. Charlie Alegl. Naugatuck's main scoring threat, took a physical beating last Saturday when he ran wild against Leavenworth. He was limping early in the week from a "char- lie horse," but is expected to be in top shape tomorrow. The Grey- sounds' other backs, fullback Bob White, halfback Bob Rabtoy and quarterback Alan Crosswait will also be in top shape. Last week Tech rolled up one of the highest yardage totals against the Garnet and Grey that any team has been able to compile this season. The Leavenworth backs Bernie Commerford, Ed Jacoyino, and Ed Gisen. did most of the ground gaining through the tackles and around the ends. Seymour's fleet backs are also expected to do a lot of outside running and could pile up the necessary yardage to hit pay- dirt several times. Trenton Teachers Win 7-6; Break 45-Game Victory Famine Trenton, N. J., Nov. 11—(UP) — Eleven years ago today, the Tren ton, N. J., Teachers beat Panzer, 12-0. The following week, the Montclair Teachers beat Trenton, 6-0, and that started off the longest winless streak in collegiate football. Yesterday Trenton finally snapped the streak. And the victims were the same Montclair Teachers who started it back in 1938. Trenton eked out a 7-6 victory, after 45 games without a win. Mike Angelolti plunged over from the one for the Trenfon touchdown in the third period. Br.b Zardus kicked the extra point lo win the game and start off a wild celebration. It was revenge in a way for Zardus, the extra-point man. Trenton played a 12-12 tie earlier this year with the Glassboro Teachers, and he missed both conversion tries in thai game. But today, Zardus was the hero. His kick gave Trenton its first victory after 42 losses and three ties. The Trenton boys gave up fcotbaft four seasons during the war, so actually, they went seven years without a win. . Montclair struck first, scoring in the second period on a 20-yard pass. But the extra-point try by Jolin Howarth was shorl. In the third quarter. Trenton moved from the Montclair 43 to the 34. Then fullback Don Donaldson passed 32 yards to Zardus on the two. August Cassi bulled his way to the one. Then Angelotti hit the line and was stopped cold. He rammed into the middle again, and this time went over. Zardus kicked the extra point, and the 11-year famine was over. Money Talks Rare Coins-Can They Be Found In Circulation CAN BARE COINS BE FOtNl) IN CIRCULATION?—By T. R. HAMMER, Librarian. American Numismatic Association. The answer to this often-asked question is yes—and no. That is not helpful, but the answer lias in what is meant by rare. Coins worth small amounts of 50 cents to $3 or 14 can be found in circulation. Coins- worth' $12 to $30 frequently are found in rolls, old hoards, or in collections in attic trunks. Extremely rare coins are not found because they are in collections. For instance, all five of flie 1913V type nickels are in collections, as are most of the otner rarities of that category. Some very rare pieces are in museum collections and perhaps never will be on the market. A collector or dealer might tell a person that it "would not pav to search rolls of cents, nickels, dimes, quarters, and other coins for premium pieces. Yet, half a dozen Americans earn livings doing thai. A knswledge of coins and what makes them worth premiums is required before a person begins hunting for them. And the next step woiild be -where and how to sell them. In subsequent articles within the next few weeks," some of the coins worth 5& cents to $70 or 115 will be listed. The first thin;; the searcher must learn is that coins are worth premiums only if they show little if any wear. The better a coin's condition, the higher Ihe premium. A free pamphlet on how to sell coins may be obtained by "sending a stamped-addressed envelope to the Librarian, American Numismatic Association, 336 North Clifton Avenue, Wichita 8, Kans. The association does not buy or sell coins, but is a non-profit corporation comprised of collectors. Other questions about coins also should be accompanied by a stamped-acl- dressed envelope.

WATERBTTRT Hilltoppers Place Unbeaten Record On Line Tomorrow Face Arch-Rival Wesleyan 11, At Hartford (By United Press) Trinity places its unbeaten, untied record on the line tomorrow when it meets arch-rival Wesleyan in Hartford. The Hilltoppers are favored despite a long-standing jinx but other 'major Connecticut college elevens are 'rated as under* dogs. The Hartford team always has a rough time beating Wesleyan. In fact, Trinity hasn't been able to take a game from the Cardinals in the last 13 years. And three times since Dan Jeasee took over the Trinity reins, his charges' chances of an unblemished season have boon spoiled by Wesleyan. f o .this jinx, the history- minded Hilitdptpers are camouflaging whatever optimism they may possess. But Trinity followers after watching the squad's stable of fleet-footed' backs, run up one of the highest scoring totals in the nation, don't see how their team can miss. of 'scenery its luck.
