Twenty COURIEIt-rOST, CAMDEN, N. J., MONDAY, DECESlCEIt 23, 1912. All-Stars Top Redskins, 17 to 14, with Field Goal On, the Line By BOB CONSIDINE New York, Dec. 28 One of those leg-art and double-talk magazines which has an Incorrigible habit of taking polls on sports matters has this day provided me with a holiday for which I am grateful. At least there won't be much creative zeal in this piece, for it Is a series of answers to the mag's latest list of poll questioning. it has to do with baseball, this time. Question: Do you believe there will be legitimate feeling of resentment against the ball players for carrying on the game next year? Answer: Only In scattered cases. Some wolves will resent the high-paid players whose draft status is a little uncertain. But by and large, the fans will accept ball players as stamped and approved by their draft boards. There will be booing in baseball In 1943, and some of it probably will be misunderstood. But most of it will be the old kind of booing for umpires, guys who strike out in a pinch and "enemy" managers and plavers, as was always the case. Question: Which do you regard as having the greater athletic skill: a great pitcher or a great batter? Answer: A great pitcher, oi course. Question: Do you think that the longer series resulting from the new three-trip schedule will cause ny considerable depreciation of interest or attendance? Answer: Things will even up. The presence of the Phils, Athletics, Senators, Braves, etc., in a town for as many as Ave days will drive the hardiest of customers away from the park toward the fag end of the series. But, on the other hand, crowds will continue to spin the turnstiles when the attraction is good. Question: What do you regard as the one most important re- ouirement for success in baseball; or what should a young boy with big league aspirations strive most to acquire in his playing i Answer: Guts. Question: Who do you think will be the outstanding player of the year? Answer: Some old guy who will appeal to the sentimentality of the crowd, because he's being kept in the big show and given one more chance simply because many able-bodied players will be In another kind of uniform. Question: What is your guess as to who will be the outstanding rookie of the year in the National and American? Answer: Stanky (Cubs), Stirn-weiss (Yanks). Question: How do you think the teams will finish the 1943 pennant races? Answer: That's what they're wondering. Question: Why do so many -young ballplayers in their second year in the majors fait to live, up to their first year's performance? Answer: Some time during the first season a pitcher finds the weakness in a hot young batter's armor. The word speeds like wild flowers, as Sam Gold-wyn once said. Conversely, seasoned batters often need a season to find out how to hit a sensational first year pitcher. Question: What was the funniest thing you ever saw or heard in baseball? . Answer: Funny ha-ha or funny peculiar. If It's ha-ha, we like the one about the dope who stole third base with the bases filled. He slid beautifully, looked up and found the bag occupied by a glaring teammate. . - "Where the hell are you going?'-' the teammate demanded. . "Right back where I come from," the daring runner said. When the bum got back to the bench, the manager leaped at his tonsils and asked him why he had tried to steal the base. "I had such a good lead,", the poor guy said. The funny peculiar thing was this: The Yanks were playing In Washington. Ed Llnke was pitching for Washington. As usual, Beri Chapman was on second. The Yank hitter was Jesse Hill. The Washington catcher, Jack Redmond. Llnke threw his hardest nothing ball up to the plate. Hill smacked it on the nose and drove a fearful line drive straight back at Llnke. It hit Llnke flush on the forehead. The ball bounced straight back toward the plate, a little to the side, and still in the air. Redmond took a step or two to his left, caught the returning line drive, pegged the ball to second base and doubled Chapman. The magazine people apparently expect Linke to say something funny about this point, but we regret that he was speechless. In fact he didn't speak for 20 minutes, by which time he had been carried, stiff as a board, off the premises. P. S. The official scorer gave Linke an "assist" in the box score.

Lee Artoe, Chicago Bears' tackle provided the winning three points early In the fourth quarter with a 43-yard field goal that sailed squarely between the uprights. The Redskins had things pretty much their own way in the open Redskin-Bear Feud Flares into Fistics; Luckman Roughed The football fued between the Washington Redskins and the Chicago Bears flared up momentarily in the second half of yesterday's pro-bowl game between the Redskins and the National League All-Stars and resulted In Washington Tackle Fred Davis being asked to leave the game. The All-Stars, with eight Chicago Bears men in their lineup, had just scored a touchdown to tie the score at 7-7 and were well on their way to a second score when the flstio fun began. As the teams lined up on the Redskins' four yard line, Davis went offside and proceeded to rough Sid Luckman, All-Stars back. After considerable milling around In which the Washington substitutes attempted to join but were restrained Davis was ushered from the game and Washington was penalized within two yards of their goal line. On the next play John Petty, Chicago Bears back, plunged over for the All-Stars second score. . ing quarter and the All-Stars seemed unable to find a combina tion of players that could click. Time ana again, the nara charg ing Redskin line broke through to throw the Stars for losses. Midway m tne nrst period, Harry Hodd. Detroit Lions' back, kicked from the Stars' 11 yard line. Kl Aldrich, Redskins' center, grabbed the ball off the ground, on the 40 and raced unmolested for the score. Bob Masterson converted. Score Again in Third The Redskins scored again in the third period. Roy Zimmerman, trying valiantly to fill the shoes of Sammy Baugh, filled the air with passes. Baueh was unable to olay because he missed plane connections irom his home at Kotan, Tex. With the ball on the Stars' 45. Zimmerman tossed to Masterson who carried to the 16. Two plays later, Zimmerman passed to Bob Seymour, who ran over from the live, Again Masterson converted. Coach Heartley (Hunk) Ander son lived up to his promise to use Chicago Bears' men frequently throughout the game and early in the second period sent in nine. But although 225-pound Gary Famigli-; etti repeatedly tore the Redskins line apart and Sid Luckman was accurate with his passes, the half ended with the Redskin line hold-! Ing the Stars on the Washington three. Dudley Scores In Third Bill Dudley.

PETERSEN Pasadena, Cal., Dec. 28 (UP) Frankie Sinkwlch, Georgia's la jured All-America back, resumed workouts today as , Coach Wally Butts sent the Southerners through their final heavy practice session for the Rose Bowl game against UCLA on New Year's Day. The return of Fireball Frankie, even though he did not get in uniform, inspired the team for the drill, which was described as Its best since arriving last Monday. Smkwich donned sweat clothes and sprinted around Tournament Park until his twisted right ankle hurt so badly he called it a day, He limped noticeably after the exercise but Trainer Doc Jones and Butts both reiterated Frankie would be ready to start. Sure to Handicap Him , The ankle Injury, however, Is almost sure to handicap Frankie. It is doubtful whether he will be able to do any printing and it is possible the Bulldogs will have to shift the offensive burden to Char ley Trippi, Sinkwich's understudy. Trippi has come along fast and was the star of Georgia's rout of Georgia Tech. Butts has been grooming Trippi slowly and the consensus of the Georgia camp is that the sophomore could do all right. The rest of the Bulldogs are In shape. Lining up against UCLA formations, - they were tackling hard and smearing play after play as Butts drilled them for two hours in their first Sunday workout this season. Butts indicated his starting eleven Friday would be the same as he has used all season with Poschner and Van Davis at tackles, Godwin at center and Sinkwich, Lamar Davis, Kuepner and McPhee In the back- neld. Bruin Hike S Miles As the Georgians were working out, the Bruins of UCLA went on a five-mile hike. Despite heavy practice session yesterday they asked Coach Babe Horrell to (Continued on Psfe Twenty-one) while Rickey was with the St. Louis club: "No one ever dies on the Cardinals." It meant that Rickey got rid of them before other outfits sensed they had lost that step or the one spin on the fast ball. Rickey will operate the same way in Brooklyn and, with a big money-making franchise, will be tough to beat all the way along the iine. Some regret that the balmy days are finished in Flatbush. No more Uncle Wilbert Robinson arguing with taxi driver. No more birds flying from Casey Stenspl's doffed baseball cap. No more Eabe Hermans outflelding in selfdefense and three runners on one base. No more cantankerous and rollicking Red McPhails. Still. I'm not so sure the fun is over in Brooklvn. Didn't Rickey not onlv round up but encourage the old Gas House Gang, of the Cardinals?

" , - - 1 r r t C 1 r Stopped Dead by Losing ALABAMA SET FOR BOWL TILT AGAINST STRONG OPPONENTS Expect to Drop Season's Jinx in New Year's Day Classic in South ELEVENS LIMBER UP By JOHN B. M'DERMOTT Miami, Fla., Dec. 28 (UP). Ala bama's vaunted Crimson Tide; stemmed three times this season by Georgia elevens, today looked hopefully to their New Year's Day Orange Bowl battle with Boston College a football team without a Georgian on the squad. "If Alabama Is jinx-consciotis, maybe my four 'Southerners' will worry them some," Coach Denny Myers, of BC, commented. "I've got two boys from South Norwalk, Conn., and two from South Boston. But no Georgians." Bama lost to Frankie Sinkwich and his University . of Georgia mates, 21-10, in the final moments of play after leading 10-0, Then came Georgia Tech, which squeezed out a 7-0 win. And finally, the Georgia Navy fliers pummeled the crimson Tide to the tune of 35-19. Thomas Scoffs at Jinx Slow-drawline Frank Thomas, chubby coach of the Alabama team, scoffed at the idea of being jinxed by teams from the Red Clay state. "Nothing to it, he asserted. "We are not superstitious. My boys real. lze, though, they have to light for their lives against a team as good as Boston. 'And it's a long train ride back to Tuscaloosa if we lose," he added It will be a much shorter ride if we win. My boys don't like those long journeys."- I he Alabama team arrived here early yesterday. There was no actual workout in the afternoon, only limbering-up exercises. Thomas said the Tide would get heavy drilling today, tomorrow and Wednesday and a light practice session Thursday. Alabama will work out once daily. Boston Tapering Boston College too, has begun tapering off for the classic. The Eagles will hold one drill session a day for the remainder of the week. Boston College had long practices twice . daily all last week as they attempted to get accustomed to the heat and humidity. Their final drills! in the North had been in snow. Both coaches predict an offensive game. Thomas said his team would not wait for a break, but would try to make their own. Myers was of the same opinion. The condition of Mickev Connol ly's injured shoulder rfemaias the big question mark. Myers hopes his big fullback will be ready. Thomas snowed interest in the triple-threat Boston back, when he queried sports writers for dope on just how well Connolly might be clicking. Neither mentor would predict a win. Both forecast the best bowl game of the country with your-guess-is-as-good-as-mine the win- LEAFS PLAN TRAINING FOR N.

Camilli Considers Beef -raising More Essential in War LaytonvlIIe, Calif., Dec 28. Pressure has been put on Dolph Camilli to get him to reconsider his decision to retire from baseball. Camilli asserts that he may change his mind, but that if he feels the same way in the Sprint he will not return. There are a number of reasons for hit quitting, the Brooklyn first baseman explains. He has his family to think of. He can't feel justified In playing ball while the nation is at war, adds that he can do more good producing beef on his ranch near Laytonvilie, which requires his attention. That, as he points out, is essential. DIFA2IQ CUTS TAPE . STREET 5-Mile Sh anahan Club Handicap Race Has Many Finishers Joe DiFazia, an unknown who trains by nightly jaunts around a cemetery, won' the annual Shanahan Catholic Club's five-mile handicap street run yesterday. DiFazlo, 25-year-old commercial artist, moved into a first place tie with Joe Tucker, a Shanahan teammate, at the end of the first mile. Tucker started 50 seconds before DiFazlo. Not long after that DIFazio drew away from Tucker, and at the halfway mark showed his heels to Joe Mcllhenny, also of Shanahan, who was second. Di-Fazio left all his competitors far in the rear and won as he pleased. finishing four city blocks In front of Tom McCole, Shanahan, runner-up. DiFazios elapsed time was 28 minutes and 1 second. His handi cap of 50 seconds gave him an actual time of 27.11 for the distance. DiFazios triumph ended the streak of Dave Williams, Shanahan and Georgetown University sophomore, who had previously captured the Middle Atlantic AAU senior -10,000-meter crown and the Camden and Nativity street runs. Bothered by a cold and lacking training, Williams finished 17th. He and Norman Gordon, Shanahan. Penn State harrier, who placed 28th were the only scratch runners in the field.

HOPES SOi SiMfiETliS Shrine Bowl JEIeven Counts on Star's Playing for Win over East Palo Alto, Cal., Dec. 28 (UP) Hopes for a West victory In the annual Shrine East-West New Year's Day bowl game at San Francisco rose yesterday when Bob Kennedy, Washington State Col lege's All-America ' fullback, re. turned to practice. - Kennedy, expected to spark both the passing and running attacks of the underdog gridders from west of the Mississippi, missed two days of workouts because of a sore shoulder. As the West squad went through a three-hour session at Stanford Stadium, Coach Babe Hollingbery warned the club it was "Drettv far Deninrr me iast squad, which held another long drill at the Santa Uara campus. btandouts In the West's drill today were Kennedy, Bob Steuber of Missouri, Jim Jurkovich, the fragile halfback from California, and, in the line, Ed Stamm, and Chuck Taylor of Stanford.

B. HIGG1NBOTHAM New Orleans, Dec. 28 (UP) Coach John Barnhill and his staff were frankly worried today over Tennessee's chances of stopping the Tulsa Golden Hurricane air attack in the Sugar Bowl ana tnougni about trying to counter it with of all things a passing attack of their own. If they decide to develop their overhead ability and really get results, the Sugar Bowl game here New Year's Day may turn Into a first class aerial circus. The Tulsa strength in the passing department is unquestioned. Tennessee, once defeated and once tied in the regular season but favored to win the ninth annual Sugar Bowl battle, builds its play around power on the ground, and Tulsa is working hard on a system to check the heavy-hitung vols. Fight Fire with Fire Barnhill watched his Tennessee boys in a long scrimmage against a duplication ot tne xuisa passing methods and remarked: T guess our best chance against Tulsa will be to fight fire with fire. We don't seem to be able to stop their passes so I guess the best thing we can do is start getting our team ready to throw a lot of passes." Tennessee's prowess In the air hasn't been anything to crow about this season but a few overheads gave the Volunteers some badly needed points. The undefeated, untied Hurricane based its offensive tops nationally on the pitching arm of Ail-American Glen Dobbs and his running mate, N. A. Keithley, and on the receiving ability of at least three backs and ends. Tennessee Back Injured Coach Henry Frnka's Tulsa squad is working out at Bay St. Louis. Miss., and the Vols are doing their two-a-day at Edgewater .Park, Miss, about 25 miles away. Xennessee has one serious injury among its players. .
