f It Saturday, Nov. 4, 1950 The Scranton, Pa., Tribune i Drubs Georgetown to Remain Unbeaten, 42-7" dy . LALu. Chic , Feldman Mr. Finch Had Better Not Let Shoe Pinch Reply: One Robert Finch, who lives off baseball, and apparently well, since his photos reveal the best features of a double chin, has joined the selfish minority who condemn newspapers for playing up major games above minor presentations starring a local club. Finch couldn't possibly be selfish, although he serves as publicity director for the National Association of Minor Leagues. It is merely a striking coincidence that Finch decries the prominence accorded good baseball (or what's left of it) and the brush-off of the poorer brand hes paid to exploit and expounded. Like most of balldoms parrots, and apologists, Finch thinks the Department of Justice should permit baseball to violate the anti-trust law. In his case deprive the folks around the country of broadcasts involving big league clubs, this on the as-sumption that more people would patronize the minors. Obviously, the man's wrong again, as in most of his complaint, except where he infers that the spielers who describe the major encounters are artists; they make every play a drama. So do the boys down below. The difference being that the listener is more inclined to accept the word of the Mel Allens; Gene Kellys and the Red' Barbers. Finchs attempt to usurp the duties of the sport editors would have more weight if he also sympathized with the little colleges who often are limited to a few paragraphs in their home sheet, whereas Army, Notre Dame and the other juggernauts hog the headlines and picture space. This, Brother Finch, (whose shoe must pinch) may be alarmed to learn, because the subscriber demands full coverage of the grid biggies. Warning: Speaking of football, the blood - sucking (and sucker bleeding) pools are among us with their You cant win, chum guarantee. This because the victory plus points doom the player before he surrenders ') his cash. Last week, for example, i a local selector named seven consecutive winners, yet lost. How? Because a joker stated that if he liked Army over Co- lumbia (and who didnt?) he had to give the book 34 points. In fewer words, Army had to win 'v by 35. So the Cadets settled for ' a 34-0 edge and the chumps au-w tomatically were counted out. The moral to which is: Dont ; play football pools." i ' Somebody Misquoted t Gavilan 'Spokesmen Rebuttal; Seems that we read , somewhere about even the Kid ( Gavilan entourage admitting Gene Hairston licked their man. Which wasnt the way I heard it, from Gavvy to his manager and board of advisors. All were , indignant; although admitting theyd been jobbed far worse elsewhere. Gavilan told me, within hearifig of several dozen I eavesdroppers, that he felt he : won five rounds decisively and several others by lesser margins, f , The New York World Tele- T grams Lester 3romberg quotes him: Tonight I win, I think. Which would make it appear "r that the mysterious Gavilan spokesman was misquoted. Or cannot one misquote a ghost? Question: If what the whispering gentry says is so the American Basketball League could require a fumigating job before tomorrows kickoff. The inference is that someone connected with Wilkes-Barre also has a financial interest in Allentown. Perhaps 'tis malicious gossip intended to create distrust in both clubs and the circuit in general. If so, Presdient John OBrien should issue a denial, plus a whos who insofar as the stockholders of both clubs are con-. cerned. Or is this too strenuous an effort for Mr. OBrien? Challenge: Via Western Union Joe Mousie Miscavage of Wilkes-Barre offers: As per our conversation, the night of the fight in Tony Hardings, I still think that Gavilan won the fight. Pertaining to our fishing conversation, I wish to go on record as challenging any man, woman or child in Lackawanna County to a fishing contest. Just name the river, lake or creek and the type of fish involved. Tennysons Brook: Thirteen pillars of baseball, answering a query of Sport Magazine as to the Greatest Player Ever to Step on a Baseball Field" were 6-5 for Honus Wagner over Ty Cobb with two voting for Babe Ruth. Itll ever be thus, as long as the hit and run pastime exists. Not that Wagner, eight-time batting king of the National League, isnt deserving. Rather an illuminating illustration of how opinions vary. GRIDDER INJURED MT. PLEASANT, Pa., Nov. ( (?). Halfback Joseph Stas, 16, of Hurst High School, was injured esriously tonight at Hurst dropped a 21-0 decision to Ramsey High High School. Stas suffered a neck injury in a pileup. He was unable to move his neck when admitted to Mt. Pelasant Hospital where X-rays wer ordered immediately. Snead Keeps N orth-South Jolmny Palmer In 2nd Place; Harmon Third PINEHURST, N. C., Nov. 3. (U.P) Defending Champion Slammin Sammy Snead boomed home with two-under-par 70 today to mark up a 13-under-par 275 on 72 holes today and become the first man in 23 years to take the North and South Open Golf tournament two straight years. Sneads terrific long game and breathtaking putting usually one of his weaker points had brought him from behind in yesterdays third round and he started the final 18 holes today. with a two-stroke edge. Johnny Palmer of Badin, N. C., and Jim Ferrier of San Francisco, tied for second going into the fmals, faded. Palmer clung to second place with a 279, however, on a final round par 72 while Ferrier sagged to fifth place with dismal 76 for a 72-hole total of 283. The broadly-grinning Snead, the years top money-winner in golf, added another $1,500 to his vault with the victory. This is the finest golf course in the world. Sammy smiled. Sneads 275 was one stroke higher han his winning total last year of 274. The second lc -'est winning total in the North-Souths 48-year history. Ben Hogan set the record in 1942 with a blazing 271. The victory also made Snead the first player to win the North-South Open two years in a row since Bobby Cruikshank did it in 1926 and 1927. Sammy played par golf for the first, nine holes today except for a one birdie on the seventh when he canned a 12-foot putt. coming in, he birdied the 16th after missing a six-foot putt which would have given him an Eagle. His card scored 35-35 70. Palmer, the leader through the first 36 holes of the match, played steady golf through the first nine, getting pars until the ninth where he sank a six-footer for a birdie two. He was trapped on the 13th and 14th for two bogies and barely scrambled out of a trap on the 15th to par that hole. He birdied the 16th to come in even par 72. Claude Harmon of Mamaro-neck, N. Y took third place with 281. Juluis Boros, Mid Pines, N.C., and Tommy Bolt of Durham, N C., tied for fourth with 282s. Behind fifth-place Ferrier came Mike Turnesa, Shelley Mayfield, Arthur Doering and George Fazio. Low amateur was Frank Stranahan of Toledo, Ohio., with 287. National Amateur Champion Sam Urzetta of Rochester, N. Y., came in with a 75 for a total of 293. The low scores, and their earnings: Sam Snead, White Sulphur Springs, Va. 205-70 275 $1500. Johnny Palmer, Badin, N. C. 207-72 279 $1,000. Claude Harmon, Mamaroneck, N. Y. 211-70 281 $750. Juiuis Boros, Mid Pines, N. C. 213-6928 $550. Tommy Bolt, Durham, N. C. 298-74 282 $550.

Willie Shoemaker booted home three winners at Bay Meadows today to take an eight-up lead over Joe Culmone in their race for jockey-of-the-year honors. Shoemakers three . trips to the winners circle ran his seasons total to 310. Culmone came home on two at Pimlico to make his total 302. Japans Babe Ruth . t Bests Joe DiMaggio In Home Run Contest TOKYO, Nov, 3 (U.R) Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees thrilled a crowd of 50,000 Japanese baseball fans with a batting exhibition today, but lost a home run hitting contest to Japans leading slugger. DiMaggio, who has played before huge crowds in nine World Series since0 1936, was amazed at the enthusiasm of the turnout and the ovation . given him at Kora-kuen Stadium in Tokyo. I havent touched a boseball for a month since the World Series, DiMag told the cheering crowd over the public address system, and Im not going to make any promises, but I hope to hit a few homers for you. Then, wearing the Yankees road uniform, DiMaggio hit ball after ball into the leftfield stands in an impressive exhibition that brought a . thunderous ovation from the huge crowd. But Joe could not get going against slow-ball pitching in a special home run Kitting contest against Makoto Kuzuru, the Babe Ruth of Japans Central Professional League. Kozuru poled four balls into the stands on 20 swings, while DiMaggio succeeded in hitting only two out of the park, although most of his hits were line smashes whicn amazed the fans. DiMag also caught a few flies Collegiate Scheduled By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK, Nov. 3 UP). A football fan with the desire and the means to attend tomorrows top college game would draw straws among Austin, Texas, Seattle, Wash., Ann Arbor, Mich., and Philadelphia and not go far wrong wherever he landed. The fact adds further proof, if it is needed, that the power is spread evenly over the land and that this season, at least, no one section can claim with any authority a preponderance of gridiron strength. The Southern Methodist-Texas game at Austin generally Is listed as tomorrows biggest attraction, and it probably deserves the honor. It brings together the nation's No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll SMU and the No. 7. That is high brass. But it would be difficult to convince Eastern fans that the clash at Philadelphia between unbeaten Army, No. 2 nationally, and once-beaten Pennsylvania is of lesser caliber than the Southwest classic. Around here, at least both teams are regarded as pistols. West Coast fanatics doubtless would prove equally hard to convince that the struggle at Seattle between Californias Golden Bears, undefeated in 30 straight regular season games, and the Washington Huskies, licked only by Illinois this campaign, is not the weeks gift to football. As for the Midwest partisans, they will give you all three of the above-mentioned contests and try to fight their way into Michigan Stadium at Ann Arbor to watch the Wolverines do battle with Illinois and its brilliant Johnny Karras. Some 92,000 of them will succeed. So you pays your money and takes your choice among the four. The deep South boasts only one real standout, undefeated Ken--tucky. The Wildcats are expected to add Floridas scalp to their collection tomorrow at Lexington. The Souths other top games tomorrow find once-beaten Tennessee playing host to North Carolina at Knoxville, and Georgia tangling with Alabama at Tuscaloosa. The Midwests second biggest attraction from a crowd standpoint will find some 82,000 jamming into Clevelands Municipal Stadium to watch Notre Dame and Navy scrap it out in the battle of the also rans. ' Ohio State, which murdered Iowa last week, should enhance its No. 4 national standing against Northwestern at Evanston, and Oklahoma, the No. 3, anticipates no trouble with Colorado at Boulder. Undefeated Princeton, favorite for the Ivy League title since its crushing' defeat of Cornell, figures to subdue Colgate at Princeton. Other games tomorrow include: Purdue at Wisconsin, Southern California at Stanford, Indiana at Michigan State, Iowa at Minnesota, Cornell at Columbia, Arkansas at Texas A&M, Georgia Tech at Duke, TCU at Baylor, Texas Tech at Rice, Brown at Rutgers, Duquesne at Clemson, George Washington at Maryland, Holy Cross at Harvard, Dartmouth at Yale, Iowa at Minnesota, Missouri at Nebraska, Mississippi at Louisiana State, Oregon State at UCLA and Kansas at Utah. FLYING TRIP PITTSBURGH, Nov. 3 (A1). Duquesne Universitys 37-man football squad flew to South Carolina today for its Saturday afternoon engagement with Clemson College. Defensive End Ray Rumanek stayed behind nursing a crippled ankle. The Dukes wound-up a week of practice that stressed a passing attack indicating the Duke's may take to the air tomorrow. in the outfield and coached Japa nese outfielders. Manager Frank (Lefty) ODoul of the San Francisco Seals, who accompanied DiMaggio to Japan, also received an enthusiastic welcome from Japanese fans, wit.n whom he is a great favorite. Last year ODoul brought the Seals on a goodwill trip to Japan and they played before record-breaking crowds. I'm here this time as bat-boy to the greatest ball player in the game today, ODoul told the fans. DiMaggio, asked about recent reports that he might retire, said he would make up his mind before Spring training, adding: "That is a long way off and I have plenty of time to decide. But ODoul had a ready answer. Joe is still a great bail player, Joe retire? When hes making $100,000 a year? Why, man, thats more than what the President makes. DiMaggio said he planned to take it easy for the time being no radio shows .and no exhibitions. DiMaggio and ODoul will be busy visiting the wounded and the sick of the U. S. armed forces in the Tokyo and Yokohama areas, while coaching Japanese baseball players in between time. They also are scheduled to go to Korea to visit GIs there some time next week. i Football Classics All Over Country READY FOR IRISH Navy coach Eddie Erdelatz, left, discusses with his quarterback, Bob Zastrow, strategy they will use in clash with Notre Dame in Cleveland today.

The game would have been played on Dec. 2, however, the university athletic board decided that with four losses under its belt, Toledo was in no shape to play a bowl game. A proposal to bring in two other teams was voted down. In last years Glass Bowl contest, Toledo lost to Cincinnati 33-13. Murphy Kayos Wagner in 1st By JACK CUDDY NEW YORK, Nov. 3 (UP) Redheaded Bob Murphy, southpaw light-heavyweight of San Diego, Calif., made an impressive Eastern debut tonight by scoring a technical knockout over Dick Wagner of Toppenish, Wash., in the first round at St. Nicholas Arena. Dr. Alexander Schiff of the New York Boxing Commissions medical staff ordered the bout stopped at the end of the first round in the corner because Wagner was bleeding profusely from a severed artery in his upper lip. Wagner suffered his injury midway in the first round when the explosive-punching ex-sailor punished him with a head barrage and floored him for a count of nine with a left hook to the chin. Wagner barely gained his feet before the count of 10 and he was groggy; but he gamely tried to make a fight of it and bulled Murphy into the ropes. There the 28-year-old Californian slugger ripped Wagners face with several short right hooks and left uppercuts that rocked the 24-year-old scrapper from Toppenish, Wis. Immediately after the bell ended the action in the first round, Whitey Bimstein a second in Wagners corner called Referee Barney Felix to the corner and pointed to the badly bleeding upper lip. Felix motioned to Dr Schiff, who scrambled into the ring and ordered the bout stopped after a quick examination. Murphy, registering his 45th knockout in 54 professional fights, impressed ringside experts with the power of his punches and with his aggressiveness. However he appeared easy to hit as he kept marching into his opponent. Murphy fights from the southpaw stance, with right foot forward; but when he gets into action the left foot moves forward until he is fighting with his feet almost on an even line. Murphys first New York fight and victory probably will earn him a Madison Square Garden fight with one of three opponents Middleweight Champion Jake La Motta in an over-the-weight match, Light Heavyweight Champion Joey Maxim in a title fight, or Heavyweight Champion Ezzard Charles in a non-title scrap.

NO ADVANCE IN ADMISSION PRICES SENSATIONAL STOCK CAR Russia Plans 1952 Return To Olympics By LAWTON CARVER NEW YORK, Nov. 3 (INS) Russia is preparing for a return to the Olympic games in 1952 with a nation-wide speed-up that is grinding out athletes in production-line quantities. They may score some points but they are not a threat to Americas Olympic supremacy in the international spectacle to be held at Helsinki and we need not worry in the least about the big, tough Russian men. Our problem is going to be to handle the big tough Russian women. This was the opinion expressed today by Dan Ferris, head of the National AAU, and other sports figures, after viewing a Russian-made documentary sports film called Sporting Glory, which is described as Russias prevue of the 1952 Olympics. The film shows the Russians engaged in athletics of all kinds and claiming all kinds of world championships but Ferris got just three distinct impressions from the movie: 1 We appear to be a cinch to handle the Russians any way they want to go in male competition; 2 Their women athletes are bigger than ours and have tremendous style in competition; 3 I never saw worse starting for track and field events in my life. Ferris said the Russians definitely plan to compete at Helsinki after a walk-out on the Olympics since 1912 and have asked the Finns to build training quarters for them at Leningrad, from where they will commute daily to Helsinki. Ferris pointed out that the Russians recently won the European basketball championship, beat England at soccer a couple of years ago, and finished third two weeks ago in the world weight-lifting championships. However, those are minor matters which the United States can handle, like, for instance the way we won those weight-lifting titles when the Russians and Egyptians were favored, Ferris said. He added; Their women track and field competitors are going to be a different problem strange as it may seem that the Russian women can outdo the men in world competition. Their women won the European track and field championships and from what I saw in thus film today they will make it tough for the rest of the world They handle a shot as though it were a grape and a discus as lightly as a piece of toast, and they have beautiful style. Carl Anderson, a middleweight wrestler for the U. S. in the 1908 Olympic games, former coach at the New York Athletic Club and now a steamship executive in South America, said; Did you ever see such starting as they get away with over there? Ferris said no he never had, and from the way the thing looked to him they planned' to always give somebody a start of three or four yards. Do you think we have anything to worry about in the Olympics Ferris was asked. Do the Russians scare us? They are just beginning to qualify for the big league, he said. Indians to Lose Weik to Service CLEVELAND, Ohio, Nov. 3 (UP) Another Cleveland Indian appeared headed for military serv ice today as Pitcher Dick Weik informed the ball club management he was facing induction. The 23-year-old rookie was the third Indian alerted for duty. Pitcher A1 Aber already is in and rookie slugger Jim Lemon has passed his tests and is waiting the call. Weik told the Tribe bosses he would be inducted Nov. 10 at Des Moines, Iowa. During the 1950 season the big right-hander, whom Cleveland got from Washington in trade for First Baseman Mickey Vernon, won two and lost six, half of each total for Cleveland. No other Indians are considered eligible for military duty. Some of them saw service in the last war and some are exempted for other reasons. Seek Graziano for Dec. 6 Detroit Bout DETROIT, Nov. 3 (U.R) Nick Londes, Detroit matchmaker for the International Boxing Club, announced today that he is negotiating for a Dec. 6 fight featuring ex-middleweight champion Rocky Graziano. Londes- said that Tony Janiro, Tony Pellone and Charley Fusari were possible opponents. Graziano won a close decision from Janiro at Madison Square Garden last Friday. FRESHMEN FOOTBALL Lafayette .18, Rutgers 0. Hurricanes Lose Two Star Backfield Men In Scoring 6th Win By FRANK EIDGE JR. MIAMI, Fla., Nov. 3 (UP) Miami scorched Georgetown, 42-7, for Its sixth victory in a row before 30,929 fans in the Orange Bowl tonight, but not before the Hoyas from the nations capital marked the Hurricanes with crippling bruises. Unimpressed by Miamis ranking as tfie nations 13th team, the Georgetown line crippled two Hurricane first string backs and fought them to a near stand-still for three periods. A three-touchdown favorite, Miami held a bare nine-point lead at the start of the last period on the basis of two breakaway runs and a safety. But Miami then sent in its pass interceptors and broke over the wearied Hoyas for four quick touchdowns. Fullback Bob Schniedenbach broke out of a pileup to run . 63 yards for a Miami score at the start of the final quarter. He was helped off. the field a few minutes later after intercepting a pass. Jack Del Bello, pitching for Miamis famed halfpint quarterback, Jack Hackett, injured in the first period, threw two quick scoring passes. One carried 16 yards to End Jom Jelley; the other four yards to End Ed Lutes. Third-string Halfback John Bow collected Miamis sixth and final touchdown with a three-yard plunge that ended a 25-yard march. Nine fumbles by Miami and four by Georgetown attested to th savage line play. Georgetown Tackle William McCarthy came off the field scarred and muddy after dumping most of Miamis tries through the middle. Miami could point to End Leo Martin, Tackle A1 Carapella and Linebacker Pete Mastellone for keeping Georgetown away from at least 18 more points. Georgetown punched over the games first touchdown with a 54-yard march on the passing arm of Quarterback Frank Mattingly. The beanpole field general hit. End Gus Fornaciari for 20 yards and threw 11 yards to Halfback James Thompson for the Hoyas only score. Richard Haeslaer converted the extra point. . Miami gained a 14 to 7 half time lead on a 42-yard run by reserve Fullback Harry Mallios and a 45-yard jitterbug dance by Halfback Gordon Watson. Miami got another two points with a safety in the third period when Georgetown punter Joseph Pallotta got a bad pass from center and was dumped in the end zone by Miamis Mastellone. The victory kept Miami in the nations fast-dwindling unbeaten ranks and bolstered the bowl hopes of Hurricane supporters. Marquette Ties S. C. COLUMBIA, S. C., Nov. 3 (INS). The Marquette University Hill-Toppers had to settle for a 13-13 tie with South Carolina tonight when a field goal attempt from Tour yards out failed 10 seconds before the game ended. A 48-yard run by Norm Rohter also furnished 14,000 Columbia fans with an even unhappier ending than a tie. Rohter brought the ball to the point where Dan Leahy missed on his try for a three-pointer. The Gamecocks had to come from behind in the fourth quarter to get on equal terms with their Milwaukee opponents. The score was rung up on an end run by Bishop Strickland after Steve Wadiak and Ed Pasky took turns in carrying to the three. The Carolinians were first to score, too. Strickland raced 44 yards on the third play of the game and Bill Killoy, who failed to kick the extra point after the fourth-period tally, turned the trick that time. After the initial touchdown, Marquette roared back, driving 73 yards. Frank Volm tossed five- yards to Rohter for the score. In the second period, the Hill-toppers twice turned back Gamecock thrusts and then went on to score on a 35-yard Volm pass. In all, Volm completed 11 out of 21 passes for 154-yards. Wadiak gained 108 yards on the ground, bringing, his three-year rushing total to 2,014. - - Vanderbilt, 34-12 ' CHATTANOOGA, TENN. Nov. 3 (UP). Fullback Dean Davidson slashed to three touchdowns across a muddy field tonight as Vanderbilt handed Chattanooga i t s seventh straight setback, 34 to 12. The 205-pounder from Miami Beach, Fla., pounded across the outmanned Chattanooga line for scores twice in the second period and once in 1 the third to unveil a running attack to go with Vanderbilts air arm. Davidson led a fleet of charging backs with two 11-yard and one five-yard touchdown sprint.

Villanova Bows In 19-7 Game With Detroit By JERRY LE DONNE DETROIT, , Nov. 3 (U,R) The University of Detroit, capitalizing on all the breaks, turned two blocked kicks and a fumble intof) touchdowns to defeat Villanova, 19-7, tonight. A chilling rain failed to dampen Detroit spirits as it erased a first-period Villanova score, coming from behind to ring up the first victory in eight years over Villanova. The Philadelphia club took only nine plays to march 56 yards for its lone touchdown as the' crowd of 8,775 settled down for a Detroit defeat. Smashing Fullback Pet DAlonzzo and Halfback Wally Cuber and John Geppi alternated in moving the pigskin from theii own 44 to Detroits three. From there, Geppi sliced over right tackle for the touchdown. Bob Hamer made good on the conversion to wind up Villanova's scoring with less than six minutes gone in the tussle. Just when it looked as if Villanova was ready for a point-making spree, Detroit came up with its first' marker. The Titans forced Villanova t kick and a Detroit linesman blocked the punt on the Villanova 34. With the goal line in sight) Detroit got its running machine in high gear and drove over in six plays. Fullback Mike Goggins sparked the march. He accounted for 31 w of the 34 yards and topped his smashing tactics with a final nine-yard touchdown sprint. Detroit failed to make good otHfflk its conversion attempt and trailed 7-6 at the end of the first period. However, after only ten. seconds of the second stanza, Tackle Lee Wittmer broke through to block Dom Frinzis punt from the 20. Fullback Dan McKenzie fell on the ball in the end zone for a Detroit touchdown. Detroit got its third break and touchdown late in the third period when Tackle Joe Kutz recovered Neil OBoyles fumble in Villanova territory. Titan Right halfback Jack OLeary smashed to the one on two tries and Goggins went overfp center for the tally. Neil OBoyle, former Scranton Central High School star, and Peie Bonnani, Jessup youth who played high school ball at Blakely, played against each other. OBoyle was at quarterback for Villanova. Bonnani held down one of the end posts for Detroit. mostly through the efforts of defense Halfback Frank Kerchner. However, the pair clicked for one score in the third period when Wade found Bucky in the endj zone from five yards out. A COMMERCE, Texas, Nov 3 (INS) The Howard Payne Yellow-jackets racked up an easy 23-to-6 victory over the East Texas State Lions in a non-conference football game today at Commerce. Howard Payne took the opening 4) kickoff and marched 80 yards in six plays for their first touchdown. Sonny Davenport ran 56 yards on the first play from scrimmage to set up the score. Paul Ormond went over from the one. GREENVILLE, S. C., Nov. 3 (INS). The Furman Hurricanes huffed and the Wofford Terriers puffed for 60 wild minutes of football tonight in Greenville and, somehow, it all ended up 13-13. A last-minute touchdown tieddi) the score for the underdog Terriers when Jack Beeler passed to a touchdown. Shortly before that, Furman appeared to grab victory by the tail when Ed Jasonelt scored from the two. Defensively, the 1949 University of Arizona football team lim- -ited its five opponents to less than two yards per offensive try. I ULS1 l llEATER TICKETS Look for your name on the Llassified Page.
