By B RAVEN DYER Turkeys are dead ducks it this time of the year but the geese, at least a few of them, can still enjoy life at Holly, wood Tark, thanks to pretty Doris Peterson. Doris Is Hollywood's "goose Rirl" for 1914, as those of you who have visited the track " lust know by this time. There are close to 250 Reese roaming around out there and they're beautiful, too. Me. . I prefer Doris. "Iy job is to look after the geese," said Doris yesterday as we chatted between races. "Now and then, if you let them come too close, they'll try to take a little nip. So far, I ve managed to escape." SEATTLE-BOR.V Doris Is 19 years of age and was born In Seattle. Her family is of Swedish extraction and moved to Southern California about 15 years ago. Her father Is a defense worker and recently purchased a new home in Inglewood. Doris ha3 a brother fighting with the marines. Doris has blond hair, blue yes, weighs 115 pounds and is 5 feet 2 inches In height. She attended Hollywood Professional School and acted in Ken Murray's Blackouts of 1942. "My hobby Is cooking and my favorite actor is Orson Welles." continued Miss Peterson. "I aiore sports of all kinds. My greatest interest, oddly, Is in horses. I love to , ride more than anything I know. BIOVIES XO LURE "No, i never have done , much singing and never have appeared on the radio. Yes, I've had several movie offers but I don't want to be in pictures. "My ambition is eventually to live on a ranch in the valley, own a few horses and three more dogs like the great Dane that I have now." Miss Peterson, as you should be able to tell, by now, is a typical American girl, only she's a little more beautiful than the average. I almost . wished I was a feathered fowl SO She could Wppn met In lino NEUTRAL VERDICT Some of my Big Ten friends have asked for a neutral ob server's opinion relative to the strength of the Ohio State team. S t a n 1 e y Woodward, a-ports editor of the New York Herald Tribune, watched the Buckeyes win the title by trimming Michigan and batted out this column: "There is no use pretending that the Ohio State football team which won the Western Conference championship by beating Michigan, 18 to 14, Satr urday, is even a pale copy of a peacetime conference champion. It is just a good, fast, little team which is surprisingly poised and well drilled in view of the fact it includes so many immature players. It has one full-scale, unmistakable ail-American i.e., Les Horvath. "Not only is this operative an eminent workman in all backfield departments, but he appears to be assistant coach on the field as well. He calls the plays, rallies the attack, blows tne noses of his 17-year-old coplayers and takes a terrible pounding, which he disregards. .HORVATH GREAT "A team composed of 11 Hor-vaths would be unbeatable. Ohio, having only one, would be taken apart if it should mix with such powerhouses as Army and Navy. Thi3 Buckeye team is very thin in man power. Apparently it has only three substitutes whom Carroll Widdoes, coach, employs with full confidence. One is Tom Keane, 17-year-old Bel-laire (O.) fugitive from Notre Dame Frank Wallace, who takes over the quarterback Job when Horvath moves to right half. The others are Warren Amling, who relieves any of the center linemen, and Nat Brown, Negro defensive fullback. "This team Is a wartime curiosity, for it employs only civilian labor. Here is a military report on the first eleven: Left end. Jack Duesrer, 4F; left tackle. Rill Willis, 4F; left guard, Tom Snyder, 17 years old; center, Gordon Appleby, 4F; right guard, Bill Hackett, 2A (veterinary student:) right tarkle, Russ Thomas, 4F; right end, Traian Dendiu, 17; quarterback, Les Horvath, 2A (dental student;) left half, Dick Flanagan, 17; right half, Bob Brugge, 17; fullback, Ollie Cline, 4F. OLD-TIME FERVOR "The victory over Michigan was celebrated in Columbus and environs with wassail and hilarity of peacetime violence. Ohio holds the championship in football sehizophrenia and guards the title jealously. Appropriately the State symbol U a nut." Webster's Dictionary: A type nf psychosis character i:ed by lots of contact vith the environment and by disintegration of the personality. It includes dementia praecox end' some related forms of in-lanity. k isf7z ' ... ' 5 s J " ' .

The photographer catches lovefy Doris Peterson, Hollywood Park s goose girl," gnawing on a drumstick while drifting around the infield lake. We thought she was supposed to guard the wild fowl, not eat 'em! Panther Puck Team Bolstered In an all-out effort to load the Pasadena Panthers with enough power to break up the Hollywood Wolfpack tonight at the Pan-Pacific Auditorium. Coach Charlie Sands came up with a player trade and signed two de-fensemen for the tilt. Sands made hi? plas-er trade with Coach Tom Murray of the Wolves, giving the ' Wolfpack Jerry Junkin for Viatettr Auger, both wingmen. Getting Auger brings the Panther "Flying Frenchman" line back into existence, as he'll work with Wincman Len Drouil- lard and Ray Ledue. Newest boy to be signed by Sands, who'll confine his efforts to coaching, is .Jim Jamieson, on loan from the Pittsburgh Hornets. With the New York Rangers last year, Jamieson is reported to be a rugged, heady player who really smacks the charging wingmen. Hollywood Position Trio Tied for Medal in Crown City Qualifying BV JACK CIRXOW A trio of amateur golfers, Lou Clayton, Virgil Snodgrass and the one and only Babe Didrikson Zaharias, tied for medal hon ors as qualifying closed yesterday for the Pasadena city cham pionship which opens tomorrow at Brookside Park.

Colo., will play in the annual Sun Bowl grid classic at El Paso,' Tex., Jan. 1, Dr. R. B. Homan, chairman of the game selection committee, announced yesterday. Dr. Homan said the Super-bombers' opponent probably will be another service team. Dr. Homan said that meanwhile the Hollywood Rangers, local professional team, has been "tendered a feeler. However, no formal bid has been offered yet," he said. The Rangers won 11 straight American League games by lopsided scores in West Coast pro competition. Dr. Homan said Maxwell Field, Ala., and Keesler Field of Biloxl, Miss., are among service teams being considered. S.C.

Jin Me- Colt Burns Up Track Post Graduate Runs Six Furlongs in Near Record Time BY PAIL liOWRY They've got a new horse to beat in the $20,000 Starlet Stakes at Hollywood Park next Saturday. He carries the college boy handle of Post Graduate and yesterday he gave a real college try in coming from behind to run the fastest six furlongs around one turn that any 2-year-old has registered in the United States this year. Near Record Time His time of 1:10 2-5 with 110 pounds on his back in the person of Jockey Hedley Wood-house is only one-fifth ?f a second behind the track record held by the older Big Ben. Post Graduate did his stuff in the Salpinctes, prep for the huge field of juveniles which has been nominated for the Starlet, and he knocked down the ears of some of the fastest youngsters at the track. Iouis B. Mayer's Pater was ih hnt T-trv-S favnrit hut. while he cot off to a nice lead and! held it all the way to the final yards, it was not enough to stall off Post Graduate as the new star roared up on the outside and shoved his nose over the line in front. Post Graduate is owned by La Favorita Stable, nom de course of the B. DiGiorgios, wealthy Californians. They purchased the colt, a son of the imported Rhodes Scholar, from G. D. Wld-ener, his breeder, in the East. Post Graduate ran once for the DiGiorgios in New York and then was shipped West. He won at the first asking at Hollywood. Yesterday was his second local start.

Yeager's fite Mtjjete (Suite WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 6, 1944 ROSE BOWL SELLOUT No more public applications for Rose Rowl tickets will be accepted, it was decreed last night by Arnold Eddy, University of Southern California business manager of athletics. "Should any seats remain for public sale after orders now on hand have been filled, such tickets will be placed on retail sale," said Eddy. "However, 1 very much doubt that any will remain after all orders from the pub lic and preferred purchasers have been filled." Eddy said that one-fourth of the tickets already sold have been purchased by the general public. Because of anticipated orders from Trojan and Tennessee alumni, season ticket holders and Pasadena Tournament of Roses boosters, it is not expected that any more tickets will be available to the public. Definite information won't be available however, before next week, he said.

The fourth heat was a slashing, gruelling affair in which Moran drove Thomas all about the ring, winging away with lefts and rights to the body and head. Renins to Tire The fifth was a repetition but Moran began to tire. However, he came back in the seventh and eighth with two-fisted rallies that earned him the edge in each canto. Thomas was stronger and his experience told late in the fight. He was a 3-to-l favorite. Bobby Jackson, 131, continued along the unbeaten path in the semi-windup when he defeated Abel Lucero, 132 '.a, in six rounds. Bobby had too many guns and won easily.
