SOUTH BEND, Ind. Wl — Southern California's Trojans may have io open their full bag of ,tricks against Notre Dame Saturday If they expect to keep 'their record unblemished lor their Rose Bowl engagement New Year's Day.

Sports Roundup' \ Benners' Passing Draws Raves fromGotham Fans By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK CAP) The hottest topic of conversation among this town's football fans in recent days is the manner : in which Freddie Bermeis, the former Southern Methodist passing ace, has suddenly lilted the New York Giants up by the slack of their'pante and pitched them Into the thick of the race lor the professional championship. Dsceo/d, Marked Tree to Clash Tomorrow in Traditional Battle OSCEOLA — Tomorrow's football' lit between the Osccoln Semlnoies nd the Indians from Marked Tree vlll be a game in which all past ecords can be thrown out the >reH box. Both teams rave hnd their share Jf setbacks-for (lie'season, but If person were to use the com- -mratlvB basis' method ; of nicking he winner he would have to string long with Marked Tree since the ndlans tipped Plggott ID-1 and his same Plggott team won from he Semlnoies 26-12. Of course botballVfollowers know -the com- mrative basis method is « lot of bunk and particularly; In this game s past seasonal records have beeh et aside when the two Indian cams get together. The _Semtnotes have a football 'leld full-pf reasons why they want 0 wln-th'ls one. First, Osceola has k string of 'four- straight w |ns over Marked Tree. The Marked Tree outdt'won their Inst one from the emlnoles In 1947 when' they -were on the long side of a 13-8 count. Then cnme four Splrcs-Hill-V/eln- >erg years and the Red Men tasted no victory, so they will be Koi all out to cop this annual Thanksgiving affair. Secondly, if the Semlnoles < win this entanglement ; their seasonal record of 6-6-1 would not ook too bad, but on the other hand a 4-7-1 mark would not be playing the course,close to par. Regardless of the outcome the fans can depend on a rock-em and snook-em ball game with nothing held i back on either side. It will oe th,e finale for both teams- In the. '52 campaign.' Conch Johnny Bearden's Indians use the T and Single-wing' form?.- nns with the running' attack led by Bob Adamson and Bill Spurlock. And again It will bs Donnle Dunn carrying the brunt of the Semlnole offensive in those devastating' line plunges he has made famous In these parts. Gjme time Is at 2:00 "In 1 the Semlnole village. Osceola Girls- Divide Two Osceola's glrla , basketball team ^uilcnted it will be the team to bent In county circles when the Seminolettes defeated Sacrert Heort of Memphis, 57-44, RI Memphis last night. The Osceola girls held n 34-18 hn If lime advantage and were paced by the 40 points of Katie Watson. Betty Spiers had 12 and Shirley CORD five. Osceola's B team dropped • 6352 decision to the Sacred HoartBees, Ibby Watson. 19, Mnrtha Donaldson, 11, Dlanne Butler, 7, and Betty wooten. 15, led the Be«s In scoring. The tall, rangy rookie had been sitting on the bench and picking.up 1 nothing but hip bunions during'the Giants' first eight games, in which they had posted the not impressive won-lost record of 5-3. After a fine start, the club's regular quarterback and passer, Charlie Conerly, had lost the knack of hitting hte receiver*. Ax far 'ax three games back, tht cry had gone up for Coach Steve Owen to forget hLs toyalty to Con- er.y and at least give Benners a shot at the job. Not RradT "Do you want me to shoot Con-- erly just because he has a bad game or two?" .Owen demanded. "Anyway, Benners ts too fine a prospect to be thrown In there and ruined before he hnfi learnert the T-formation thoroughly. He never worked from anything but the -spread formation in college, I won't put him, on such until I know he's ready." And that was how matters stood when Sunday's game began against the :Redsklns. It was taken for granted that If the Polo grounders The New York Giants hit 151 home runs during the 1952 season and 103 of them were hit in the Polo Grounds. DO IT QUICKER WITH THESE ost that one they woujd be out of the running for the title In their division. There wu. Conerly etlll crouched behind: center, and the discontent among the Harlem alumni was vast. Before one quite knew what had happened, Washington was tramping downfield and had run up a 10-0 lead.-The end of the first period marked the seventh straight in which the Giants under Conerly's direction had not scored a 1 touchdown; -About midway ol the second quarter, Owen finally made up his mind that Conerly had a core arm and nagged Benners In. The_ reaction of the Giants was somewhat electrifying. The kid looked as though, he had been weaned on the T-formation. In 11 plays,-mixing his tactics skillfully, he drove his club T7 yards to a touchdown, then he went 48 yards In seven plays for the winner. Another long march in the fourth period was broken up by a fumble near the goal line. In the course of turn- Jng an apparent rout hito a vital 14-10 victory.. Benners hit on eight of 13 passes for 113 yards. Navy over Army: The Cadets are vastly Improved over lant year. In fact they are much better than the Army team which started the present season. However, Navy's defensive unit is the best to repr«- sent the sailors in recent years— and you can't lose If you can keep the other team froin scoring. This game Is your TV tidbit Saturday afternoon. Notre Dame over Southern California (Saturday): Figuring that the Trojans were at their best last Saturday when they got by UCLA and gained the Rose Bowl assignment. Also, the Irish apparently have, cured'their fumbling habits: Pennsylvania over Cornell (Thursrtuy): The Quakers heed this decision to keep : Coach George Munger from having the first losing season in his long stay at Pennsylvania, Tennessee over Vanderbilt (Saturday): It Is Vancterbllt's turn to win this traditional contest but the Vols' tie with Kentucky last Saturday has'awakened the team. Texas over Texas Tech (Thursday) : Only Notre Dame and Oklahoma have been able to handle the Longhorns. Georgia Tech over Georgia (Saturday): All of Tech's cripples have regained their health for this meeting. Holy Cross over Boston College (Saturday): Another one where you can throw the season's records out of the window. Chuck Maloy's passing to be decisive.
