RESPECT ASSOCIATION During the session. Bruns declared that the so-called “gentlemen’s agreement” between the council and Ministerial association was “chiefly designed to bar night midget auto races, donkey baseball and other such professional promotion activities from the howl.” “We have every respect for the opinion of the Ministerial union,” Bruns added, “but it is essential that we encourage clean entertainment for the members of the United States armed forces who are quartered near the city.” COUNCIL JURISDICTION Accordng to Santa Ana’s general charter, jurisdiction over the Bowl is vested in the city council and it has the right to grant or forbid use of the stadium. The Air Base football team is scheduled to make its first appearance here against the Los Angeles Bulldogs on September 27. Proceeds from the games played by the SAAAB gridders will be used to build a new gymnasium on the post, according to athletic officers. Tomorrow 6:15 KFT—Farm A Home » KNX—Sunris* Saiut* — 7 A.

Chaffey’s decision to abandon all athletics for the war’s duration did not come as much of a surprise here . . . although it left wide open a choice November date (the 6th) on Santa Ana jay- see’s football schedule. Once a spirited contender for championships in all sports, the Ontario college instituted quietly a de-emphasis campaign three years ago . . . soon after it was lampooned all over the Eastern conference because Hal Finney transferred from San Bernardino to Chaffey and led the Panthers to the football championship. It wasn’t long afterward that Chaffey dumfonnded the conference (or at least this section of it) with a suggestion that the Eastern division reorganize without Santa Ana and Fullerton. The Dons and Hornets, indicated Chaffey spokesmen, were “too athletic” for the inland brethren and should be left to their own devices. The conference refused to be stampeded and leveler- headed Chaffeyites got the school back in line. When the war presented problems of transportation and decreased enrollment Chaffey’s anti-athletic faction got back in the saddle. What conference followers fear now is that Pomona, just a good long mashie shot from Ontario, may follow Chaffey out of the league. Certainly the Red Raiders never have enjoyed the success of Chaffey in athletics. If the Ontario college can’t see its way clear to continue some observers wonder what that makes Pomona On the other hand, the Raiders have a new coach (A1 Guhin), fair prospects and possibility that Chaffey’s athletes will transfer to Pomona for a merger. Director John McCoy of Santa Ana, for one, has indicated he would not he adverse to waiving the transfer rule to satisfy Chaffey‘s stranded football, basketball and other athletes. Dropping the season’s first “time bomb” on Eastern Junior College conference schools, Chaffey today notified Santa Ana, Fullerton and other fellow members it was withdrawing from all intercollegiate sports for the duration of the war, Although lacking verification, it also was reported that Chaffey high school would not field teams in the Citrus Belt league either. Leo Wadsworth of Ontario, ath letic commissioner of the jaysee conference, said Chaffey’s decision was based on (1) transportation problems and (2) the uncertainty !of enrollment due to prospective students working on crop harvests. Chaffey, it was indicated, proposed to adopt an intramural sports schedule until happier days return to the world. Long a strong factor in football and basketball, Chaffey was to have met Santa Ana in the Municipal Bowl Friday, Nov. 6. With Coach Bill Cook on a hunting trip in Northern California, Don Di rector John McCoy said he didn’t know who Santa Ana would meet that day if, indeed, any substitute can be booked this late. Coach Bill Cole of the high school said he had received no official information that Cljaffey’s preps were abandoning interschool competition but admitted he has heard rumors they might. Sunset Preps to Open Oct. 13 High school footballers of the Sunset league (Orange, Anaheim, Newport Harbor, Huntington Beach, Fullerton, Jordan and Excelsior) will begin their championship season Friday, Oct. 23. according to a decision reached at a special meeting here last night. The original schedule called for first games to be played Oct. 16 The decision to delay the season one week was necessitated by the belated opening of all Orange county institutions, due to stu dents assisting in crop harvests. Every school indicated its in tention of proceeding with varsity and Class B grid games. However; the Sunset eliminated Class football because of transportation difficulties, although Anaheim and Excelsior announced they would field “C” elevens as usual STAN MUSIAL ... a batting star in any league, but currently pacing the inspired St. Louis Cardinals in their hand-to-hand fight with Brooklyn for the National league pennant. Two Army Teams Won't Tangle WASHINGTON— (AP) — Secretary Stimson said today that the two Army football teams—the Eastern All Stars and the Western All Stars— would not meet each other. As soon as their present schedules with n o n-A r m y teams have been completed, the teams will be disbanded and the men will return to their military duty. (By United Press) LOS ANGELES— Indications that U. C. L. A.’s Bruins will take to the air this season appeared during; yesterday's practice session when Quarterback Bob Waterfield spent most of the afternoon heaving passes to Ends Milt Smith and Herb Wiener Coach ‘‘Babe" Horrell put the tirst and second teams through a <>nF' hard scrimmage during which Tailback Roy Kurrasch received an injured elbow that will keep him out of action for several days. LOS ANGELES— Coach Jeff Cravath ordered a scrimmage for today after devoting most of yesterday’s session to tackling practice. Of the 45 men that turned out yesterday, only five were experienced tackles and Cravath is hoping to groom Storm Warning: Beware Those Broncos From Santa Clara This is another of a United; Others are Bart Gianelli at left Press series of articles on Pacific1 guard; Tom Fears at right end; Coast football teams.) SANTA CLARA.' — (UP) — When a school loses 21 football lettermen by graduation but expects to have 19 return, there more for a strong reserve squad. Joe ; only is One answer—material. Davis, who has been at right end for two years, will be inactive for several days because of a bad blister on his left foot. PALO ALTO Bobby Andrews vied today for the quarterback position formerly held by Neil Johnson, who was declared ineligible for play with the Stanford Indians. Milt Vicinich, converted fullback playing center, was another prospect for the job. BERKELEY— The University of California Bears went through their firrt live scrimmage of the practice season today against the Ramblers. Russ Messner. fullback, was hailed by Coach Stub Allison as the most promising punter in first practices. Code: *KHJ, tame program heard on Station KVOE That’s the situation this fall at the University of Santa Clara where Lawrence (Buck) Shaw, Ray Hammett and j who seemingly has a lifetime job as head coach of the Bronco team, is making pessimistic observations despite the talent which surrounds him. "The inexperience of our personnel and the arrangement of our games make our 1942 schedule the most difficult in Santa Clara’s history,” says Shaw naively while other coaches wonder why the Broncos seem to have a corner on slippery-hipped halfbacks and big fast linemen. MATERIAL PLENTIFUL None of the graduates—not even Kenny Casanega, All-American halfback and Rupe Thornton, the tough Portland Irishman—will be missed too much. Santa Clara had a top-notch freshman team last year as well as a raft of sophomores and juniors who ached for action. Santa Clara has the only motorized ROTC unit in the west and inopt of the veteran players are either in it or already have enlisted in Navy and Marine reserve officers’ corps. War therefore is not one of Shaw’s problems. Five sophomores are on the tentative Bronco first string with Pat Higgings, a fireball from Los Angeles, the best of the lot. CORVALLIS, Ore — The Oregon State college varsity squad baek- ne d was strengthened today as Lee Gustaison, last-year letterman end. proved ability to handle the right iialfback spot. The Rose Bowl champions concentrated on their passing attack. EUGENE. Ore.— Bob Reynolds today boosted hopes of Coach John Warren as he proved he’d lost none of his talent displayed last year as halfback on the University of Oregon frosh team. The varsity went through its first scrimmage yesterday. SEATTLE— The University of Washington Huskies today believed they had a successor to their two previous kicking stars in Fred Olson, letterman end. With a total of 73 successful placekicks out of 80 tries in practice sessions this year, he will attempt to take up where Elmer Berg and John Mizen left off. CAMPUS RESERVISTS Twen‘y-nine of the 48 candidates for Marquette’s football team have been sworn in as reservists in the armed forces, Pete Davis at quarter and Paul Vinolla at full. A1 Beals, undoubtedly one of the country’s best pass-catchers, returns to handle left end with Ed Forrest, a sparkplug on th'e field, at center and veteran Sheldon Harden at right guard. Ed Alliquie, right tackle, and John Falsarella, left tackle, round out the line with Jess Freitas making the fourth man in the backfield at left half. The first string line averages 204 pounds, the backfield 174, indicating that both power and speed are included in Shaw’s plans to blitz foes like California, Stanford, Oregon State and St. Mary's. USES DOUBLE WINGBACK Shaw became somewhat of a “heretic” to other Notre Dame- trained coaches in spring practice when he introduced certain figures of Pop Warner's double- wingback system. The Broncos may shift off the orthodox Notre Dame "T” into the familiar box or a double wing which means the defense will have a busy afternoon figuring what’s next on the program. The Santa Clara schedule: Sept. 26, Utah at Salt Lake City; Oct. 3, Stanford at San Francisco; Oct. JO, California at Berkeley; Oct. 17, Oregon State at Portland; Oct. 24, UCLA at Los Angeles; Nov. 1, San Francisco U. at San Francisco; Nov. 8, Loyola at Los Angeles; Nov. 15, St. Mary’s at San Francisco; Nov. 22, Navy Pre-Flight school at San Francisco. BY BURTON BENJAMIN (NEA Service Correspondent) The only time Stan Musial ever miscued on his somersaults, it altered his entire baseball career. The St. Louis Cardinal slammer does his flip-flop whenever he dives for a shoe-string catch. He explains that it helps break the fall. Two years ago, Musial took a dive in the Florida State league and landed hard on his left shoulder. It put an end to his pitching career and made him a full-time outfielder who was destined one year later to become a sensation in the National league. Musial, a husky 6-foot, 175- pound southpaw was burning up the Class D league pitching for De Land. He had plenty of swift, fair control, a good assortment of stuff. BASEBALL KEPT HIM OUT OF STEEL MILLS Only 19 at the time, fresh out of the Pennsylvania coal belt, Musial had a welcome versatility for a minor league club. He could belt a ball, which made him a jack-of-all-trades. Not only did he win 18 games, lose but 5 and pitch the club to the pennant, but (Turn to Page 13) Cards Look Like N.L. Champions Eastern Army to Play Bears Next BALTIMOR E—(AP)— Col. Robert Neyland’s Eastern Army All-Stars headed today towards the toughest of their three games in a nine-day endurance cam paign for the Army Emergency Relief fund with a second pro team's scalp at their belts. The All-Stars staged a fierce fourth quarter comeback last night to defeat the Brooklyn Dodgers of the National Professional Football league, 13-7, before approximately 45,000 persons in Baltimore’s Municipal stadium. . Then they entrained for Boston. where on Sunday they take on the National league champions, the Chicago Bears. Col. Neyland wasn’t optimistic about that encounter. “I don’t think we have a chance against the Bears,” he said after last night’s victory. “We have too little time and they have too much power.” The All-Stars’ defeat of the Dodgers was not the clear-cut victory which they gained over the New York Giants. Col. Neyland said his squad felt the effects of the previous game, adding that "the fact that we have more men enabled us to keep fresh men in the game and this more than anything else accounted for our victory.” Baseball Standings PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE Team— w L Pet. .os Angeles ........... 104 69 .601 Sacramento ........... ion 73 578 Seattle ..................... 93 80 .583 San Diego ............... 89 84 .514 San Francisco .... 85 88 .491 Oakland ................... 83 80 .483 Hollywood ............... 73 100 .422 Portland ................... 61 108 .372 •—Games behind lender Yesterday’s Results Los Angeles, 5; Sacramento. 2.

Ferdinand the filbert, in case you’ve forgotten him, is a little guy with an adding machine for a head and percentage table for a heart, and when he starts counting over you—well, pal, it may not be deadly, but it’s no vitamin tablet. And the way Ferdie has it figured out right now, what with the St. Louis Cardinals two games in front of the Bums and moving right along, the layout looks tough for the daffiness boys. Naturally, you’ll point out that the Brooklyns broke out of their hitting slump yesterday like a dimpled dowager trying to get into a debutante’s size 12. They turned loose a 19-hit bombardment that tore the feeble Pittsburgh Pirates apart 10-3 in a game marked by a brawl in the stands among some fans, a couple of ushers and Dixie Walker and Mickey Owen. And those festivities caused Ferdinand to point out that if the Cardinals should even lose four of their remaining nine games, the Dodgers would have to take 9 out of 11 to win. Or, the Cards can even go under the .500 mark —say win four and lose five—and in that case, the Gowanus gallants would have to grab eight and lose only three. And if the sons of St. Loo should fall completely apart and drop six out of nine, Duroehers’ darlings still would need 7 of 11 to come home on the bandwagon. As both outfits went back to work today for more target practice at the same bulls-eyes, here’s the way the layout lined up: Games Games W. L. Behind Play Cardinals .. 98 47 Dodgers .... 95 48 J And Fort Ord Tentative Foes Given a “green light” by the city council, the Santa Ana Army Air base today opened negotiations for at least four Sunday afternoon football games in the Municipal Bowl. The first home appearance of the potentially powerful soldier eleven is almost sure to be made one week from Sunday, Sept. 27* The Los Angeles Bulldogs of the Pacific Coast Professional league will be the opposition. Captain John Biancone, post athletic officer, was in conference today with representatives of the Bulldogs. He said a definite announcement will be made tomorrow. Capt. Biancone indicated that three other Bowl contestants would be booked at once, probably with Fort Ord on Sunday, Oct. 4, with March field or the Hollywood Bears on Sunday, Oct. 18 and with the UCLA varsity on Saturday, Nov. 28. It is entirely possible, lie said, that the SAAAB will meet both March field and the Bears here since there are two November dates still open on the Army schedule. The Army team is practicing daily on Santa Ana high school’s East field. Despite bruises and bumps, the men came through their first engagement (with the Bears) in good shape. Quarterback “Monk” Mosconi has a groin injury and Quarterback Joe Margucci a painfully cut hand but both are expected to be ready for the Bulldogs.

Tennis LOS ANGELES — (AP) — A couple of tricky-stroking South Americans, Alejo Russell of Argentina and Pancho Segura of Ecuador, moved up for their quarter-final battles in the Pacific Southwest tennis tournament today as the fans still chattered about an upset in the feminine ranks. The unexpected happened when Mary Arnold of Los Angeles downed fourth-seeded Dorothy Bundy of Santa Monica 6-4, 2-6, 7-5, just to prove it was no fluke when she offered so much competition to Finalist Louise Brough in the National tennis championships before being eliminated. Segura, playing a brilliant, two-handed game that kept his opponent in almost constant bewilderment, scored a 6-0, 7-5 victory over Lewis Carson, former non-playing, captain of the Chinese Davis Cup team. 9 11 Angels Can Cinch Pennant Today (By Associated-Press) The disconsolate Secramento Solons of the Pacific Coast league get their last chance to redeem themselves with the home folk today and retain even a mathematical chance of snatching the Coast league championship from Los Angeles.

The victory placed the Southerners four games ahead of “Pepper” Martin’s lads with only five games remaining.
