Ml C 3 Bad Seasons Brought Football Upheavals Up and Down the U. S. BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1931 Scored Big Upset at Poughkeepsie r Gales' Were Down But Interest Up in 41 Sports Notre Dame's Defeat Big Feature of 1931; Wood a Bright Star By GEORGE CURRIE Football entered upon an unusual post-season period of higher criticism this year, owing In part to the 44 deaths It caused and in part to the reform wave which engulfed N. Y. U., Columbia, the Southern Conference and Wisconsin, to mention only a few. The season itself was studded with brilliant perform ances. The outstanding battle was that between Southern California and Notre Dame, in which the Trojans at last ended Fighting Irish in an amazing Navy crew which scored sensational triumph at Poughkeepsie last June.

Athletic Champions of 1931 a new threat to both the French, and Americans appeared in the sudden rise of Bunny Austin and Fred Perry of England. Perry cams to America and ably demonstrated was full 15 better than the year previous. As the year drew to a close great political doings threatened in the U. S. U. T. A., thus proving that the leopard cr.nnot change its spots. A revolt by those so ruthlessly suppressed at the last annual meeting hns already cropped out in the Eastern association and It Is expected to throw the annual convention at New Orleans next month into a grand, old-fashioned civil war. THEN THESE OTHER THINGS Skating and Winter sports on the whole passed through the customary pre-Olympic year stagnation, but with the Olympic Winter games scheduled early next year for Laka Placid a sudden revival of interest was noted -i the holiday season appronched. In swimming Helene Madison outshone all others, men and women, turning in a remarkable list of records. In fact, if one were to set down the outstanding achievements of tha 1931 sports year, the charming Hoi-t,c would be ranked pretty near the top, if not over all. THE rROBI.ElVI OF ECONOMY CUTS The baseball world was given a thrill when Wllbert Roblason was replaced by Max Carey as Brooklyn manager. While the boys ars hunting for a new name for th Robins in this borough, elsewhere the fans are speculating on Just how fnt a cut Colonel Ruppert will ask Babe Ruth, the one and only Bnmbino. to take. On all sides one is constantly running up against symptoms of depression. But sport goes on; only the gate suffers. How soon the sports world will stirt cutting the price of admission is problematical. However, when N. V. U. and Tennessee played their charity game In New York to a t3 top, reserved seats at $2 and general admission at tl, this imbnllyhooed game drew about 40,000. This was rej?irded at the time as an eye-opener for the business heads of sports. Continued from Page 1 Southern California's record with a defeat. Navy beat Pennsylvania. But by far the most important issue left by the year was the 44 deaths from football. To be sure, most of the deaths occurred owing to neglect of injuries sustained in high school, prep school and snnd-lot games. But the few college deaths were such tragic drama as to arrest public attention. The broken neck of Robert Brlns-ley Sheridan, Army end. In the Yale game and the concussion sustained in the Bucknell game by Cornelius Murphy, Fordham tackle, whlrh finally killed him, left the rule makers on the defensive. With Joseph Szymanskl, substitute for Murphy, still in the hospital, one side paralyzed, the death toll from other games lacking proper medical supervision aroused public opinion. Already the rule makers are at work to make the game safer for the players. But at that some race tracks did record business and the men's sin-Kirs tennis final had the largest gallery In years. OOI F FIELD THROWN OPEN Golf's big sensation was the enlistment of Bobby Jones by the movies. Automatically this threw the big tournaments wide open and there was a wild scramble for honors. Billie Burke won the national open, with the great Jones in the unaccustomed role of spectator. Francis Ouimet, who had last won in the year the war began, carried off the amateur crown. The links also had its controversy, this time over the new ball. Although some players found the "balloon ball" to their liking, most, either from prejudice or from sincere dislike, conducted bitter rocking chair campaigns against the new toy. The golf association conducted an exhaustive Investigation and finally supplanted the pet ball with one of the same size but slightly heavier. Immediately frowns changed to smiles and all Is peace and good will again on the fairways. In women's tennis Mrs. Helen Wills Moody so completely domi nated her sisters that by the time of the national singles tournament it was simply a case of no match. In the men's division Ellsworth Vines Jr. dominated scarcely any less, but U. S. Army Team Salient Feature Of Horse Shows Yankee Officers Cuplnred International Trophy With a Record Score The salient feature of the horse show year Just closed was the per formance of the United States Army's team of Jumpers in winning the lion's share of the major honors at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden. In addition to that the team Invaded Canada and made an even more impressive record. The Americans have been trying for more than half a dozen years to lift the International Military Trophy which is offered In a class that requires teams of three officers representing various nations to compete over a difficult nine-Jump course. Practically every previous year the United States Army had finished second. But during the recent national show, the team not only won that even and the trophy but set an all-time record of no faults. The best previous record had been made in 1927 by he Polish Army with only 1V4 faults. And America made It a complete sweep by carrying off the pair trophy and the Individual trophy. The riders who took part In these triumphs were MaJ. Harry D. Chamberlin, Capt. W. B. Bradford and Lt. A. W. Raguse. All were on the team of three. Chamberlin and Bradford rode the winning pair, and Raguse carried or! the individual honors. The horses on the team were Ugly, Suzanne and Tan Bark; in the pair. Tan Bark and Suzanne, and the individual champion was Ugly. Another notable but regrettable occurrence of the recent season was the death of John MeEntee Bowman, president of the National Horse Show since 1925. Under Bowman's influence the show grew to its present popularity. The directors have, as yet, made no move to elect a new president. Moore to Defend Cue Tittle in Chicago Chicago, Dec. 26 (Pi Robert Moore, Grand Rapids. Mich., national Junior pocket billiard champion, will defend his title in a challenge tournament opening here Monday. Arthur Cranfleld, Syra cuse, N. Y., Nicholas Oliva, Chicago, and Charles Cacciapaglia, Rockford, 111., will attempt to dethrone the youthful Wolverine.' Cranfleld, a left-hander, who plays with rare skill, ranks as the outstanding challenger. The youngsters will use a table 4 feet by 8. All games will be at 75 points. deal by penalties. Army Either the squad has gone political or mere must De a lot of lire behind the smoke screen issuing from Madl son. Princeton hung up a record, win- ning its first game and losing all the rest. It also yielded up the largest score any Big Three team ever gave another, to Yale. But it somewhat attoned for that by scoring 2 touch downs when all was lost. The result is that the Tiger is flirting with the notion of an outsider for next year's coach. SCRAMBLED SITUATION ON EASTERN FRONT The Eastern situation was thor oughly scrambled. Harvard beat Army and Dartmouth, while Yale only tied them. But Yale beat Harvard. Those four teams put on the tightest 6erles of the year. Harvard's net supremacy over the Cadets and the Green was 2 points. Yale, so far as the scoreboard was concerned, was all even, after leading Dartmouth 33-10, only to have Morton and McCall go berserk and grab off 23 points in the third and fourth periods. Yale beat Harvard 3-0, with only 2'ii minutes to go. Figure out for yourself which should be the Eastern champion. I cannot. Columbia beat Dartmouth and lost to Cornell. Then Cornell lost to Dartmouth. It really doesn't seem to make sense; but that is what make3 football so fascinating. You never can tell. In the Middle West, Northwestern feels it was rigged out of a Big Ten title by losing a post-season charity game to Purdue. Just ask any Wild cat if the greatest of the virtues is Charity! Down South the race was between Tulane, Tennessee and Georgia. Georgia exhausted itself in the toughest schedule of the year, and finally lost to Southern California by a score of 60-0. Tennessee came thundering down to its traditional game, unbeaten and untied. But Kentucky rolled the Volunteers back with a 6-6 tie. It's up to Tulane against Southern California, but eve:i if the Trojans win, they will still have that St. Mary's defeat to balance against Tulane's defeat. It 8 all very complicated. Protector Leading Harness Performer In Year's Meeting Four great trotters and pacers speeding over the mile ovals in less than two minutes, featured a year high-class performances in the light harness horse sport during 1931, says the Associated Press. Protector, carrying the silks of Ralph R. Keeler of Auburn, N. Y., and Charlotte Hanover from the Hanover Shoe Farms of Hanover, Pa., joined the list of trotters which have beaten two minutes. J. D. Hooper's Braden Heir of Murfreesboro, Tenn., and Star Eta-wah, champion pacing stallion of the year, were the two pacers to forge their way into the select group of two-minute performers. Losing only one race during the season and trotting the fastest mile ever raced by a three-year-old trotter, Protector was easily the outstanding horse of the year. The record of 1:5914 was made In his last race. At the close of his championship campaign. Protector was sold to the Walnut Hall Farm of Donerail, Ky., for $30,000. Charlotte Hanover trotted her record mile in l:59'i, while Braden Heir paced the distance hvl:59'4 and Star Etawah In 1:59. Calumet Butler, a three-year-old trotter from the Calumet Farm of Lexington, Ky., won the rich Ham-bletonian at Goshen, N. Y.. and topped the money winning list with earnings totaling $38,115. Protector was not eligible for the sport's riches. ev?nt. Calumet Chuck was the most consistent of the to-year-old trotters, hanging up a mark of 2:04. Calumet Cheater, also a member the Calumet racing string, dur ing the early part of the season topped the juvenile pacers, turning mile in 2:004. MARATHON KING the long winning streak of the last-period rally, helped a completed the rout of the South ? Bend Ramblers with a cleancut victory, won on a field that was like congealed gravy and In a snowstorm t Yankee Stadium. Oddly enough. lew voices were raised to proclaim that if Rockne had been alive, it would have been otherwise. The old chief of the Monogram squad had expected to 'lose two games. And when he went to his death last March in an airplane disaster, he left behind a nearly complete machine for Hunk Anderson, his successor, to steer. TEAM REVEALED FEET OF CLAY But the steady accumulation of prestige, brought by an astonishingly complete succession of victories, only served as a boomerang. The Northwestern game was the real tip-off. Notre Dame was able to squeak by with a scoreless tie, but to such teams as Southern California and Army it had revealed a foot of clay. Marchmont Schwartz could be stopped. While the Southern California victory was not what might be called a clean-cut triumph, there was no question of Army's superiority. Once the victory string had been broken, the starch seemed to go out of Notre Dame. This surprised few observers, for that is nearly always the fate of a team called upon to maintain an unbeaten record over three years. With Notre Dame thus at last suppressed, for a season, at least, the championship pickers began to turn elsewhere. Down South, Tulane was unbeaten and untied. On the Pacific Coast Southern California was beaten once, early, and came on with such a rush that the Ers-kine Memorial Award committee of 250 sports writers voted that tne year's winner, as near to a cham- d on as may De naa, was 10 De ac cided by the outcome of the Rose Bowl game between the Trojans and the Green wave, o BARRY WAS 1 OUTSTANDING PLAYER By all odds the outstanding player of the year was Barry Wood of Harvard. This yound six-footer .dangles a Phi Beta Kappa key from his watch chain. Only one B-plus mars his record which otherwise is all A's In one of the universities boasting of the toughest courses. Barry was good enough for almost universal All-America mention as quarterback, either first or second team. He was cool at times a gambler when gambling brought victory, at other times conservative when the other side looked for gambles. He picked his plays to win, rather than to pile up score, and the manner in which he saved the Army game after winning it will live long in Harvard and Army annals. In addition, he is on his way to becoming Harvard's first ten-let?r man. He divides his days into a definite schedule. When the manager of the baseball team tried to coax him to come out for the nine Barry shook his head and said he wouldn't have enough time for his studies. PROVED FINE OFFSET TO ATTACKS ON GAME "That's all right," said the manager. "You Just come out to play In the games. We won't ask you to practice." All-around in everything he tackles, be it classroom, football, tennis-last year he drove Johnny Doeg, then on his way to the title, out to five sets with hardly any competition by way of preparation ice hockey or baseball, he kept his eye directed at his lifetime ambition, to become a physician. And next year he enters the Harvard Medical School, honors thick upon him but modesty still prevailing. Barry was a ready answer to football's critics this December at a time when the game's defenders needed a ready comeback. BAD SEASONS BRED I'PHEAVALS The upheavals up and down the country can, on the whole, be traced back to bad seasons. We might talk about N. Y. U. going pious but it was easily detected that if Chick Mcehan had won all his games he would have been coaxed to sien a new contract. At that, N. Y. U. seems to have- been one of the few that took the castieations filed in the Carnegie Foundation Bulletin No. 23 seriously. The Violet is out to clean house and doesn't appear to mean maybe. Soortsmen will cry "More power to it." The row at Columbia is mostly a campus Journalistic squabble. In which the Columbia Spectator's editor Reed Harris, assumed the role of leading rte-emphasiser. To some Harris' revolt was a sign of undergraduate initiative: to others it was In poor taste, considering that Columbia had come a long way back towards its old-time prestige and was still under the thumb of a stern, Roman father faculty. Wisconsin has drawn down legislative fire, owing to the fact that a bright lawmaker figured out that it cost the uCdJers over $5,000 to make a touchdown.
