Tale played over its head Saturday in holding Princeton to a, 21-13 win. and consequently Coach Her 1 man Hickman will have a job build- itig up steam under the Elis again. Their final opponent, Harvard, baa won only one ptame this season, fcut despite this lack-lustre record, too much of a letdown could result in disaster for the Blues. • New Engalnd's only undefeated, untied eleven, Trinity, also IB In a precarious position as it guns for Its first perfect record in 15 years. The Hilltoppers have had to play all-oat ball in the last two games, and the letdown from their 7-to-fl win over Wesleyan is naturally considerable. Trinity's last opponent, Tufts, has demonstrated enough power this year to be considered • threat. Wcsleyan Trinity's vanquished foe, Wesleyan. closes out its unhappy season by entertaining Rochester. The Cardinals, who have been plagued with Injuries most of the year. turned in their most brilliant performance in holding their Hartford rivals to a one-point margin. The University of Connecticut Journeys out of its class to tangle •with Ohio Wesleyan this Saturday. The U-Conns arc elated because of their upset win over New Hamp•hire. If they continue playing such a crackling good brand of ball, they will have a chance, but only an outside one. of ending their Mason with a win. New Britain Teachers, who have an enviable record of five wins, one loss and one tic, wilt run up against a team which boasts r.n even better performance. They'll play at New Haven Teachers who have won seven nnd lost one. Coast Guard already has wound up its season, losing lost Saturday to RPI, 20-0. N.B.A. Commissioner Abe Greene Blasted As "Dictator" Miami Bench, Fla., Nav. 15-1 (UP)—A former president of the Notional Boxing association took the floor yesterday at the NBA'n convention in Miami and blasted Coir.t.-mssioner Abe Greene as a dictator, Joe, Trinor of the Illinois t3oxing Commission tmhcd some 200 delegates. "What has the dictatorship of Greene been doing- tor the NBA." Several state delegates immediately took the floor to protest. Only Colorado Commissioner Edward Bohn joined in Trlnor's attack on Greene. A few inlnutoH later Greene was given a unanimous vote of confidence. Then the commissioner read his annual report to the convention. Greene urged that boxing be stabilized on a national aoale. He also proposed that the federal government give back to boxing some of the lux. receipts received from the sport. The money Greene said, would be used in a program for greater ring safety in every state. Officials also will consider some sort of ring insurance for old and worn- out fighters.

Coach Harvey Harmon r>f Rutgers says free substitutions must be ruled out of football, as he puts it, "before it destroys the game." Harmon Is a member of the National Coaches Rules Committee, to his word carries plenty of weight.

"Through its uun. wo are losing touch with :.hc boys and taking uwuy tho fine, rugged condition necessary to 00- mlnute football." Harmon suggests no more than two or three substitutions at one time.

Levl Jackson continued to set the of- fcnsivn pace for the Yale football team with a brilliant performance, perhaps the bout of hid four-year ::nroer, In last week-end's with Princeton.

WltLIMANStTT, MASS. TO'BW YOBK—The Bowery i* a street with 11 macabre charm and the distinction of being the kingpin of all skid rows. Philadelphia has iu Franklin Square and Chicago has it* West Madison street, but they are, after all, carbon copies of the original. Manhattan's is the real thing, sordid and whimsical and frightening. In between the drunks, it has a full complement of oddly assorted business establishments— shops that paint away black eyes, pawn shops, rundown movie houses, greasy spoons, swinging-'' door saloons and here and- there a surprisingly respectable clothing house or grocery, whose owner has spent his career along the Bowery and sees no need of moving, now that the street is shot. One of the business establishments is the Trl- Clty barber school at 204 Bowery, where about a hundred earnest young men meet daily and learn how to be, as we may, tonsoria! artists. The Bowery is a fine place for barber schools, because there are always countless be-stubbled citizens on hand; who ,arc willing to risk their lives under the tyro's razor in return for a frc- s'i"v. However, having led you by your little hand down to chc U^-nry and to the Tri-Clty, we bring you up sharply and rctfitn you now to Tony Casabona and Brooklyn. M»l M«!m»r .« SEE> K A " CENSED DIRECTOR of the Trl-Clty. and a resident of Brooklyn. Every night for the last 10 year* hi* has been putting on his hat In the Trl-City at J> p. rn. and taking the subway out to 74th street in Brooklyn, where he live* with hl« wife an interior decorator who takes off each summer to operate i hotel Jn the Catsklll mountains. operate » Like many New Yorkers, Tony evidently has been growlnr atead<> ily more depressed at the formality and the rlgldnew of the big cityi He wants casualness, and in 74th street, which is the Ben«onhurst section of Brooklyn, he does not get it. ™<urat Like most of the rest of Brooklyn. Bensonhurst i* a collection of old homes and new apartment buildings, {airly well crowded together, and the whole of it chiefly noted because Milton Berlc make* bad gags about it on television. In short, it is citifled. However, Tony Casabona is not a man to be deterred easily He wants casualncss, he is going to get casualncss. A short while ago! he set about to get it—and the result has thrown Bensonhurst Into something of a furore. For Mr. Caoabona and his wife, after three years of plmnnlnrj have begun the construction of a luxurious, custom-built California ranch-type residence—a one-story affair of dark tapestry brick that will coat $50,000 and when complete will look exactly a* if Gardner should be lolling around in it, tn shorts. To say that the Casabona mansion will not exactly flt the terrain Is a masterpiece of understatement. It is being built In a »ection full of two and three-family houses, the majority of which were built jnore than a score of years ago. The Casnbonn.i were aware of thia when they hatched the idea back in 1946, but after they canvassed the Lon|; Wand miburb* carefully they failed to flnd just what they wanted, *o they relume* *.o 74th street and settled for that. • » * » THK NEW HOUSE WILL BE A HOME 92 FEET 1XJNG and 32 feet wide and will contain seven rooms, with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a basement with space for a miniature television theater and recreation room. There will be red cement walks, sunken rooms and an Interior, under Mrs. Casabona's fine hand, that will be Chinese modern in chartreuse, forest green and black. You can just *ee Al JoUon sitting on the 36-foot terrace, surrounded by merrymaking dinner guests and musing whether he dare return to the movies. There is one sinister note In the construction of the place There Is the faintest hint that California cutture is moving tMtwwd. This could mean that the drive-in restaurant, th« hot-rod automobiles clattering through, the night, the celebrities' footprint* in wet cement and the strange, eerie caste system whereby »750-a- week men speak only to $l,OOQ-a-\veek men and Sl,000-a-weck men speak only to Darryl Zanuck, all may be fumbling their way toward New York within a matter of years. This is alarming and not encouraging at all. However, in a world of conformity, where all men fear to wear green shoes or even wrap-around camel's hair coats, It is reawurinr to come across Tony Casabona. He is going to have casualneM Jn at least part of his. life, come what may.
