The school, ranked No. I 111 the final Associated Press poll last season, accepted the NCAA decision but said It felt the .punish mcnt was harsh. Of course, it's too early to start picking a : successor to. the Wild cats bitt several club.? seem to have championship potential. One of these is La Salic o( Philadelphia. The Explorers surprised everybody last season by winning 'the National Invitation. Tournament In Madison Square Garden. Four Back Four of the players which sparked the team are back again this year. Saturday'. iilghl the Kxplorers whipped Niagara, 181-76, for their second straight victory. However, the NCAA champion and collesinte Olympic representative — FCnnsns — has lost Us big scoring giant, Clyde Lovellette, and for this reason doesn't figure lo repeat ai cllher NCAA or Big Seven king. Kansas state seems to have the edge In this circuit/but It had to go Into overtime Saturday before defeating Drake. 19-13. The Midwest seems to have more than Its share of lop teams. Illinois, champion of the Big Ten, looks, like- the: best bet in Hint conference RRaln.' 1 We'll get a good line in ilie.Illlnl Wednesday njshl, when they 'start .their season against Lo.vcTn of Chicago, one of the ranking Independents.

B)' ORLO ROBERTSON NEW YORK (AP) — Nobody ever has called Bert Bell a soothsayer but the commissioner of the National Football League has proved himself quite a prognosticate!-. • while the Eagles beat the Washing;on Redskins. The Eagles stayed in the running yesterday by defeating the homeless Dallas Texans, 38-21. At the same time the injury-riddled Giants were knocked out of running, 27-17, by Washington. • Kams Coming The situation is not the same In Ihe National Conference, whei-e the Lions meet the Texans.. winners of only one of their 11 starts, and the Rains, victorious In their last seven games after a slow start, take on the tough Pittsburgh Steelers at Los Angeles. The Lions-Texans game will be played Saturday In Detroit. Detroit squared matters yesterday with the Chicago Bears, winning 4521- to keep pace with the Rams, who beat down Oreen' Bay's pennant hopes, 45-27. » The Steelers, still riding 'the crest of their 63-7. triumph over the Giants a .week ago/likewise put ij quietus to San-Francisco's chances,' winning 24-7. > ' Calling All Lefties WASHINGTON, D. C. (Jf}— The Senator. 1 ? certainly are in need c-f some lefthnnded pitching. And the 1952 records prove it. Lou Sleater, obtained from the Browns andlater sent to the minors, won four games for the 'Nats —the only . victories credited to a southpaw hurler. Mickey Harris, the only other lefty on the Nats' 1952 staff was sold on waivers to the Indians In April. Before the professional season started Bell said .without any ifs and buts, that the winning team in each of the. league's two divisions v/ould lose a't least three games. The standings today show that the commissioner was not talking just to be heard. At the top of the American Conference was a record of eight victories and three defeats are the Cleveland Browns. Heading the • National Conference are the Detroit Lions and the League Chum- pjo:i Los-AngeJes Ranis, also each with an 8-3 mark. . It doesn't look .however, as if the commissioner called his shots so well when he named Sunday, Dec. 21, as the date for the championship playoff game^ between the winners of the two divisions at the site ofr the American Conference victor. If either division Is deadlocked alter Sunday's filial games, n playoff will be necessary on Dec.' 21 to determine the finalists. That would put the championship game back a week. "• .Browns A fa In The Browns, a finalist every year since the defunct Alt America Conference was organized in 1946, already have, clinched at least, a tie in their section. They did that yesterday by shutting out the Chicago Cardinals, 10-0. 7 To be forced into a division playoff with Philadelphia, the Browns will need to lose to the slipping New York Giants at -the Polo Grounds Read Courier News Classified Ads Theyve Coming Kicks and Holds DETROIT (ffi — When Bobby Layne of Ihe Detroit Lions Ikcked an extra point' against the Green Bay Packers recently, Pat Harder held the ball.
