rAUXi inw NOTRE DAME COACH TAKES CORNELL JOB Irish Without Mentor For Second Time In Year As McKeever Resigns. South Bend, Ind.,.Feb. 28 (UP) Notre Dame was without a head football conch or an athletic director today for the second time in 12 months and the third time In a little more than lour years. Ed McKeever's acceptance of the head coaching job at Cornell vacated two jobs at Notre Dame since the 34-year-old Texan was serving both as athletic director and head grid mentor in the absence of Navy Lt. Frank .Leahy. Notre Dame's board of athletics is expected to meet Thursday to name a duration successor or successors to McKeever. The Rev. John Cavanaugh. C.S.C., vice president of the university and chairman of the athletic board, refused to comment on possible action by the board. If the two jobs are Riven to one man, which has been a general policy at Notre Dame for the past 25 years, Hugh John Devore is expected to set the nod. Devore, 34-year-old line coach under McKeever, was the latter's No. 1 assistant during last fall and is expected to be strongly recommended by his former boss. Ithaca, N. Y., Feb. 28 (UP) A new type of football appeared to be in store today for Cornell with installation of Ed McKeever as head coach replacing Carl Snavely, who went to. North Carolina. McKeever, 34-year-old acting athletic director and head coach at Notre Dame, is of the new school of football men who stress offensive speed and quick-opening plays, while Snavely, a veteran of 18 years of college coaching is an advocate of intricate ball handling and deception. Pittsburgh Hornets Oppose Flyers In Bid For Runnerup Position Pittsburgh, Feb. 28 (UP) The Pittsburgh Hornets, out to cinch their hold on second place in the American Hockey League's Western Division, will cross sticks with the St. Louis Flyers in the Gardens tonight. If the Caps lose to the Bisons at Buffalo and the Wasps knock over the Flyers, a gain of two points in league standing will be chalked up. This game will be the last in the season series with St. Louis. Pittsburgh has won one, lost three and tied one. An added feature of the contest will be a ceremony in which the club management will honor Max Bennett, right wing, who was sidelined by a broken leg three months ago.

A Ocldiers Spend Ten Days Behind German Lines At Luxembourg Experiences of three Monongn-helans who spent ten days behind the "Jerry" lines during the Luxembourg campaign, were told to Mrs. Sussn Galelt of 46 Highland avenue in a letter from her son, Sgt. Mike Galek, who is serving with Company A, 119th Infantry, 28th Division, in Germany. The two other local soldiers with him are John Ronton and Harry C. Peters. Sgt. Galek writes: " Well, Mother, here it is nine o'clock and I have just finished working and have to got up at four o'clock in the morning. It's been quite .some time since I dropped you a few lines, so I thought that this would be .i good time to answer your letter ... To tell you the truth I have been pretty busy the last two or three weeks and this is the reason that I couldn't find time to write. "Well, mother I guess you have heard about the big push that the Jerrys made b3ik in Luxembourg, and everything happened on my birthday. December 17. To tell you the truth I'm very lucky to be alive today. It took me ten days to come from behind the Jerry lines and I was three days without anything to eat outside of raw potatoes. That is all I can tell yiu about my ten Jays behind the lines and if the censor lets this go through I wish you would try and put it in the Monongahela paper. The reason I ask you is because John Konton and Harry C. Peters and I are always reading about some of the boys' experiences In the war zone and we would like to tell the town paper our experiences here in the K. T. O. .European Theater of Operations."
