PAGE «—XACGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), FKTUAY, DEC. 8, 1M9 Greyhounds Hosts To Junior Republic Tomorrow At YMCA Coach George K. Goodwin's N'au- faluck High School ba«JteU<»,] t*«m takes on its second "wavni- up" opponent of the couson to ^borrow night, when it plays host to Junior Republic of LItchflold on the YMCA court. ., The Greyhound* opened their •t-anon last Saturday, playing Ti-'n- ity Boys' Club, of New Haven, In » warm-up game at the Y—anl lost, 42-35. Couch Goodwin may shuffle his lineup tomorrow In an effort to get more scoring punch into his starting flvo. Last week only two of the starters, Roger Currier a-v Waliy Dumonski, were able to do much scoring. Currier dropped in 16 and Dumonski nine points to account for 25 of NaUgatuck's 35 points. The other 10 points wore divided between five players. . T unlor Republic will bring to U.wn u fast, aggressive quintet which Is tas good as many high schools In Naugnt uck's class. The visitors are expected to give the Garnet and Grey a battle all tlui •way, and despite the fact that they were booked for a warm-up, will probably enter the fray on terms with the locals. The junior varsity quintets will open the program In a preliminary game at 7:30 o'clock. Minor Leagues Vote To Retain Baseball's Bonus Rule For Year Baltimore. Dec. 9—(U P)—Baseball will abide by the controversial bonus rule for at least another year. That much waa Nettled when the rule waa put to a vote yesterday at the minor league meeting In Baltimore. Despite pressure from major league owners, tho bonus rule •tayed In the books by a vote of 32-28. It would have taken a three- quarter* vote, or 46 votes, to start repeal machinery rriovlng. Thus, the major league meeting in New York next week must pass up the bonua issue. To repeal It. base- Sail first had to get minor league support. At the session, the minor leagues aJso voted to clarify the rule governing high school players. They want it to read that a player may be signed when his class graduates. Up to now, a player could not bo approached before he waa graduated. The Pacific Coast league fulled again In Its fight to avoid the player draft. The west coast circuit wants to be eliminated from the player draft, thereby allowing its teams to keep tholr stars. The motion waa defeated 55 to four. That means Pacific coast players can be drafted the same as those from the American association, International league or other loops. There were several player transactions during the day. The Baltimore Orioles baught outfielder Babe Barna from Nashville In a three- cornered deal. To complete the deal the Orioles will send a pitcher to Seattle of the Pacific Coast league. Seattle then will send another outfielder to Nashville. Atlanta of the Southern association has sold catcher Cliff Dapper to Hollywood of the Pacific Coast league. Dapper was player-manager of. the Crackers last season, Dixie Walker has taken over as manager. St. Francis' Seeks To Regain Winning Stride Here Sunday St. Francis' CYO, smarting from Ita fir-it Knlghtn of Columbus Baii- kctbull League defeat ulnco the 1947-18 season, sustained last week at the hands of SS Peter and Paul, will attempt to bounce back Into the win column Sunday afternoon, playing host to St. Stanislaus at 3 o'clock in St. Francis' school hull. In a 2 o'clock game, St. Mary's, of Naugatuck, a new entry in the league, will play Our Lady of Mount Carmel. St. Hedwig's CYO, with two defeats in an many games, travels to Watertown to play St. John's at 3 o'clock in the Watertown High school. Yale-Penn Clash May Decide Ivy League Champion New Haven, Dec. 8 — A major clue to tho question of who will annex the 1949-50 Ivy Loatfuu championship in 'basketball will bn provided tomorrow night at 8:45 when the defending champion, Yale University, meets last season's runner-up, Pennsylvania, in the Payne Whitney Gym. Pennsylvania is tho unanimous choice of the Ivy Lcaifuo coaches, excqjrt Hobson, to win the tlUo thU year. Hobson, although plagued by injuries and IOHSCH, In the bulldog tradition merely says of Penn, "Wo will not Concede." The Ell mentor hajj said he Is considering a switch In the lineup n order to put speed back Into ho Yule break. Hobaon mentioned he possibility of moving high scoring forward Ted Anderson back Into a guard position and idrtlng- Jim Gault to the quintet because of his flcetnesi. Yale came through to boat the New York A. C. 64-54 on Wednesday as a result of a laflt-mlnute spurt, and Hobson said the Biuo venknoss woa a definite Inck of iard running (play, and that in he only typo of game that will boat Pcnn. "We've promised a fast, hard driving team," the coach said 'That in my stock In trade nnd I ntand to put a team like that on '.he boards for Yale." The narrow six-point victory 'cnn garnered in beating Swartli- morc 71-6S should not bo considor- d as an indication the former has >cen overrated, he said. At ono ime they were ahead by 20 points and before the game had cndod hoy had shot 17 men into tho Rome. 1949-50 Naugratuck Higrh School Basketball Team Highlanders Strengthen Lineup For Clash With Roesslers NEW 1MB PHILCO RKFBIOKUATOB 7 Co. ft. — S Year Warranty «0 Down ... |8 Weekly «11 NO.
