•THE REGISTER, SANDUSKY, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER -2* 1032 Boxing LATE SPORT NEWS Blue Streaks' Injuries ; May Change Lineup For Game With Findlay Team Injuries and more Injuries, wliieh made their appearance so frequently prior to the Findlay game a year »ffo, descended upon Sandusky High football camp again Tuesday afternoon and four of the Blue Streak regulars, counted npon for heavy duty in the clash with the Blue and Gold this Saturday, were added to the casualty list- It was the Oberlitw league battle here last Saturday that claimed the services of at least three of the first' stringers temporarily. James Earl, dusky end, received a broken nose and* Head Coach Bob Whittaker expects him to be on the disabled list until the Tiffin Columbian scrap, about two weeks away. Alble Hess, varsity signal-barker, was ordered to receive treatment for a bothersome charley-horse that tends to keep him on the sidelines for at least a part of the Findlay conflict. Eddie Bryant, regular tackle, was con fined to his home Tuesday with sickness! J. P. White/put out of action two weeks ago with torn ligaments, again suffered a similar injury In Saturday 's Jeague tilt Has' Replacements Ready Despite the apparent gloom cast over the Blue Streak squad Coach Whittaker has already prepared to - meet the Findlay grldders with a slightly revamped eleven. As a replacement at Earl 's end, Klelnflelder may be shifted to that post from tackle. At quarterback, Chaffee Is ready to call 'em for Hess and Felck or another Streak will go In at Bryant's tackle. • However, White and Hess are not counted upon to be definitely out of commission this Saturday and .the former may be called for duty at Earl 's flank. Necessary response to treatment today through Friday will determine whether Hess will start. The outlook for the Findlay game Tuesday was not so rosy,* so to speak, from Whlttaker's viewpoint. Coach Jay Winters, the Findlay gridders and several hundred rooters who followed the Gold here last fall haven't forgotten that 19-7 defeat dished out Beltz & Co., which exploded chances of an undefeated season and part claim to a state championship. Fremont and Toledo DeVilbiss upset Findlay this season but It's still-, a great ball club, reports have revealed. " Findlay Has Good Record Findlay boasts of a great record against Sandusky grid teams, dating back .to. 1902. The Gold has been defeated, only three times, won eight and' tied two. Back in '02, the, first time the two schools met, Sandusky r.'on; 6 to 5. Findlay came back that same year and triumphed, 16 to 0. . Not until 1929 did Sandusky score Its second. victory over a Findlay team. Te score was 31 to 0. Last fall's win made it three for San- duslry. Hack in 1917" the two schools played,] a scoreless (ie and tied in 1924 at 12- rll.,, Stopping_Sandusky, 16 to 0 In 1002, Findlay came back to emerge triumphantly over the locals in 1924, 2? to 18: 43 to 20 in 1915; 6 to 0 in -1P1G; 14 to. 7 in 1921; 13 to 12 in 1922. 32 to 0 in 1925 and 25 to 6 in 1030. Although rain kept the Streaks Indoors here Monday, Coach Jay Winters sent his boys through an intensive drill in the rain at Athletic park, Findlay. The fact that the Streaks have crushed many of their opponents this fall Is not worrying the warriors of Findlay say. Winters, reports from Wyoming Big Shot Eddie Dunn, Wyoming University fullback and spark plug of the Cowboy team, is leading the Rocky Mountain scorers. He is playing his third year and does most of the kicking, passing and ball lugging. VISION OF TILT IN ROSE BOWL COMES TO BEARS Brown, Unbeaten Thus Far, Faces Tough Opposition In Next Three Contests. PROVIDENCE, R. L, Nov. 1 \g>) —With his gaze focused on a distant horizon thai takes in the Pasadena Rose Bowl, the undefeated Brown Bear is girding . himself for the dangerous journey he must make before he can gain an invitation to enter those sacred football portals. And what perils . the Bruin must overcome to gain this gridiron val- halla. He has had a dangerous passage up to this point of the highway to football fame and among the clever traps he has "avoided weVe those laid by Yale and Harvard. Opposition Is Tough Cannier hunters, however, are lurking ahead ai)d if the ^bear can escape the undefeated lance of the Holy Cross crusader, then prevail in the death struggle with the as yet invincible Columbia Lion, and finally turn back the big Red Raiders from Colgate, he is a worthy brother of the Iron Bear of 1926. Small wonder that the eastern football public has been amazed by the current Bear's sudden progress. Just six years ago, when the likable •Tuss" McLaughry first came to Brown, he found a football animal that possessed, every football attritute needed for greatness. He had poor animals to work with the next five years but this season, with well balanced material again available, he found the players ho needed to make his famous triple-back formations successful and was fortunate ln> avoiding the opponents who had the means to stop it. HOW PITT SMOTHERED NOTRE DAME'S FAST BACKS Watkins Beats Fishbaugh In Slam Bang Bout' Here The Press Box By "CLAYTON J. IRWIN BUCK GRIDDERS GIVEN WORKOUT COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 1 (^—Apparently little the worse for last Saturday's battle to a 7 to 7 tie with the "University of Wisconsin, Coach Sam Willaman's low-scoring Ohio State gridmen today went through what probably will be the . most arduous drill of the^. week. They meet Northwestern at Evanston Saturday. There was a brisk scrimmage, followed by a long session for backs on ends and passes. Then Sanvcalled the boys together for a discussion of "scoring plays'; he hopes wilt work better against Northwestern than against Indiana, Pittsburgh and Wisconsin— all tie games for the Buckeyes. REMEMBER FREDDY? Freddy Spurgeon, former second sacker for Cleveland, Kansas City and several other clubs, has received an outright release from the Springfield, Mo., team of the Western Association. INTERSECTIONAL TILT The University of Oregon has signed to meet Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge, La., on Dec. 10 this year. A return game will be played in Portland in December of 1933.

One of the most recent rumors, which was promptly and emphatically denied by University officials, was that the oft-discussed bugteboo, campus politics, was muscling in on every huddles Two,regulars, according to the report, were rivals for the presidency of one class ( and, as a result, there was dissension, lack of cooperation and general debility on the team. Another report dealt with the alleged rancorous sentiment prevailing among members of the coaching staff. At any rate, Salem Sam Willaman fend his seven aides-decamp have thus far failed to produce the fireworks loyal followers expected from seven veteran, lineman and four veteran backs. * * * Red Cagle, .former Army star, is handed $650 for every game he halfbacks with the New York Giants.. Boy, gimme that helmet, I'm off for West Point. .This column respectfully submits to Mr. Henry P. Stofft State Recreation billiardist, the name 'of Mr. Erwin Rudolph, who mbde a run of 157 in a pocket billiard exhibition at Cleveland t'other night. .He's so hot he won't count 'em unless he runs 50 or more.. Weatherman C. C. Cooper of Sandusky has been receiving lots of telephone calls since those two Cleveianders ran afoul of the law for shooting ducks after sundown..The hunters, taking no chances want to know,exactly what V * Try to solve the football situation so far this season and you'll wind up in a padded cell, or at least with an attack of the megrims (ritz for headache.) Indiana tied Ohio State, State lost to Michigan, Michigan slammed Illinois, Illinois trimmed Chicago and Chicago whipped Indiana. So that rates Chicago better than Ohio State. But State tied Pitt and you know what Pitt did to time the sun quits doing business.. Wonder what Mr. Cooper says when the day is cloudy..The depression must be over..Norman N. Rankow, address, United States, has made reservations for himself and family for the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin-. Kanyari, Lorain High's ace ball carrier, has scored only 25 points this season.. And one of the most ironic typographical errors of the year occurred in a Lorain paper wlUch misspelled Lundy's name "Gnat". .Notre -Dame's-seven game grid 1 series with Drake ended this year. .It began in 1926 when the late Knute Rockne and Ossie Solem, untll-recently- Drake-coach decided to get together because they were both Norwegians. This picture graphically illustrates how the powerful University of Pittsburgh team achieved the~ leading upset of the gridiron season by winning, 12-0, from Notre Dame. Several Pitt players are shows swarming on Ray Brancheau, Notre Dame halfback, with gusto. Notre Dame, so State is stronger than the Ramblers. Chicago could only get a tie with Yale. Therefore, according to these figures; Notre Dame is simply the equal of Yale this year.. But Yale tied with Bates at the start of the season, so Bates and Notre Dame are in the same class. If Army beats Notre Dame and Navy sinks the Army In December, I'll be seein* you—in a nice, comfortable straightjacket. BRIAN BELL £RITICISM of football coaches that officials In 1932 are not calling all the infractions of the new rules probably are well grounded in some. cases, but it must be remembered that ,harassed officials have their troubles, too. The best thing to happen for officials would be development of the idea that they should be assigned by a centra^ board, leaving them free to call everything as they see Now, in some cases, a weak- kneed official dares'not be too independent or he will not be permitted to work in future games in which a team heavily penalized participates. Coaches pointed out failure to curb too free use of the hands, but there have been wnany other infractions missed, l<n one Important. game a player fumbled as he was tackled. Clearly a knee struck the ground before the ball 4iounded from his arms, so the ball was dead before it left the player's possession. The opposing team recovered the "fumble," which was not a fumble, and was allowed to take possession of the ball, although it had no right' to it. * * * AXE BEGINS TO FALL The open season for football coaches seems to have opened a bit early this year. Already, with the schedule barely on- its way, one coach has been released and announcement made that another will not be tendered a new contract. The football coaches have no barometer such as has baseball. In baseball if a manager gets by the fourth of July he has a good chance to last until Labor Day, and If he still is manager the first Monday in September he usually is safe enough for the season.' But in football the axe may fall any day. * * * THESE CALIFORNIA GOLFERS A foursome on a California golf course the other day made an unusual record when a combined total of eight was scored on a par-three hole, The first two to drive sent their tee shots dead on the short hole and the next was well on the green. The., fourth player then sent the ball rolling into the cup for an ace. The match was low ball and aggregate so the other three holed out, the first two getting birdie deuces and the partner of the hole in one man nv&r three. , The performance did not equal that on a long par-five in the same golfing state, where in a foursome two members scored birdies, another an eagle three and the fourth holed out a spoon shot for a two. Gusto To Meet Gallant Sir In Latonia Event CINCINNATI;" Nov. 1 UP)— Gusto and Gallant Sir came to town today, to battle for the Latonia championship stake of aiy estimated $40,000, and incidentally uphold the honor of their respective sectors, the east and the west. They, and a field of possibly.six others, will take the field Saturday, with plenty to make the race notable in Latonia's history. It will be, for one thing, the next to the last running of the Latonia championship. It will be, too, Gusto's big chance to become leading three- year old of 1933, and retain hi| standing as the top money winner of the year. For Gusto, pride of M. L. Schwartz' stable, already has $144,000 to his credit ,this year. The championship, $25,000 added over a mile and three- quarters, is e xpected to yield at least $35,000 to,the winner. NEW CROP PEANUTS THRIVE LONG MONT. Col.—The peanut crop over on the south Forty is doing very nicely. John Hobday proved to the sceptical that Early Spanish peanuts will grow In Colorado. The peanuts are slightly smaller than the usual goober, hut they are well developed and "taste exactly like peanuts," according to the folks who have tried them. " Tallest Sunflower Harvested LOVELAND, Col.—The city's tallest crop has been harvested and Frank Helm; the owner, claims some kind of record. The crop was a sunflower which measured 14 feet from roots to flower, but not including the flower. Helm measured his sunflower after he saw an item In a newspaper saying a Kansas farmer was claiming all sunflower records with an 11-foot flower. ST. MARY'S HIGH TO PLAY FRIDAY Locals Expect Tough Battle At Port Clinton. Coach Lee Zierolf's St. Mary's High gridders will attempt a "comeback" game at Port Clinton this coming Friday, afternbon- For the past three weeks the Saints have been taking the short end of the score on two' occasions. Not since the. first win over Vermilion and then a scoreless tie with Elyria Lightweights have the Zierolfmen hit their stride. The defeat by Crestline here last Thursday was handed out on a muddy field and by the margin of a single touchdown. Defects in the locals' attack during that contest have given Coach Zierolf plenty of work, this week in preparation for the Port Clinton game. Tiffin Calvert, Maumee and Bellevue: have been defeated x by „ Port Clinton^s gridders this season and that record assures' Zierolf that a tough assignment Is ahead. Henry P. Stofft, proprietor of the State Recreation Billiard room, defeated Zimmerman, 100 to * 23, last night. Tonight Stofft plays Reddle at 7:30 o'clock. Stanford Fans Maintain Confidence In Warner Despite Recent Upsets PALO ALTO,, Calif., Nov. 1 (JP) — Stanford University has not lost confidence in the Warner brand of football despite two straight setbacks and on the campus and In alumni circles the sentiment is for "Old Pop" Coach Glenn Scobey Warner. The 13-6 defeat last Saturday by the University of California at Los Angeles was accepted in the same spirit as the 13-0 loss to Southern California - / a week before, as "the breaks in: football.'' About the only reaction to the' defeats was confined to grumbling on" the part of a few alumni. Graduate Manager Alfred R. Masters, highest authority of the board of athletic control, the student-alumni body, that controls athletics . at Stanford, said today: "We always have a few chronic kickers., Every college has them. They grumble whether the team wins or loses. \ We are for" Warner, win, lose or draw. Stanford outscrim- maged U. S. C. and U. C. L. A. . and made more first downs They were just tough games to. lose." Masters pointed out Coach Warner had renewed an agreement not long' ago to remain at Stanford . for five years, until 1937. As Warner is a member of the faculty there is no written contract between him and the board of athletic control. , Warner has the privilege of severing connections at any time. After last season he was "reported to have had offers from several eastern Institutions. Last August he renewed-his agreement with Stanford. Two formidable opponents remain' on Stanford's" conference schedule with Washlngton_to be f^ced * Saturday and California, Nov. 19, following which Coach Warner will take his team east'to met the University of Pittsburgh, Nov. 26.* .:• HEAVIEST PRO GRIDDER Weighing 275 pounds, Harold Ely, tackle on the Chicago Bears professional eleven, and formerly of < the Universtiy of Iowa, is said the heaviest grldder in the professional ranks.

Cobbler Gets" Good Going Over And Loses Two Falls; Lcs Fishbaugh, Newark rass- ling cobbler, found an opponent just ,a little too' tough for him in the feature bout of Dan Morris* grunt show last night " at Fisher's hall and he went down In defeat before Sailor Watkins, dropping the first and' third falls. It was a fierce struggle for vie tory, and both wrestlers showered back and forth- with slugging, strangle holds, biting and what not, before Watkins climaxed the match by grabbing Fishbaugh by the hair and 'toppling him to the floor with a couple of rights to the jaw. The Sailor then pounced on his opponent to win the third and deciding fall In nine minutes and.30 seconds with a body pin. About 700 fans' packed the hall for the big scrap between, the two grapplers, the largest crowd to watch a card here in several months. Watkins won the first fall-with a double-dorble arm, hold after 24 minutes and five seconds. Throughout the match, Watkins gave the fans a bit of ^clowning but always showed a cool head when In the pinches and never got excited to any great extent. ». "Fishbaugh, being handled rougher than ever- before here, won the" sec bnd fall after 12 minutes with a crab hold. The cobbler applied the pressure but, once after adjusting the deadly hold'and the sailor Immediately gave up. Fishbaugh was about to clamp on another crab hold during the try for the third fall when Watkins slapped the cobbler in the face, successfully breaking the attempt.
