THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD. f MONDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1939. NINE Sports Champion Joe Louis seems to have thoroughly depleted the field of worthy challengers so it behooves Promoter Mike Jacobs to s"cour the land in search of likely looking opponents. Louis insists on fighting, so, for the time being, he will have to be content with fellows like Arturo Godoy, the rugged South American champion who boasts a couple of decisions over Tony Gatento. Godoy hardly fits into the "challenger" classification, however. Speaking of challengers, just where is the next worthy coming from.? There ca nhardly be a demand for another match with Galento or Pastor. They made brave stands but there is ::o reason to be- UPSETS ARE FEWER AS FOOTBALL TEAMS HIT STRIDE Saturday's Results Produced Few Surprises; Traditionally Important 'Ivy League" Games Take Headlines This Week. By HUGH S. FULLERTON, JR. NEW YORK, Oct. 16 (#>).—Although some college football elevens are emerging slowly from the crowd, no single team, nor a dozen, can be singled out as the best. Saturday's results, close as some were, produced fewer surprises than on any previous week-end this season and indications are that the elimination of weaker contenders will continue this week in an even more orderly manner. As things now stand, these teams have proved clearly their right to be ranked high in their respective sections (they're all undefeated, of course): lieve that they would not suffer the i East—Pittsburgh; midwest—No- same fate again. The picture they i tre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, Ok- presented after Louis got in his j lahoma, Nebraska, Kansas State; deadly punches hardly invite an-j south.—Tulane, Kentucky, Alabama, other chance.. | Mississippi, North Carolina; southwest—Texas A. and M.,' Baylor; Rocky mountain big seven—Utah; Pacific coast — Oregon, Southern California, St. Mary's. Then there's a "maybe" group, including some teams struggling to recover from early setbacks and others which have not had a chance to prove their strength. These include Carnegie Tech, Duquesne, Cornell and Harvard in the east; Minnesota and Purdue, mid-west; Louisiana State. Georgia Tech,- Tennessee, Clemson and Virginia Military, south; Southern Methodist and New Mexico, southwest, and Denver and Oregon State, west. Recently deflated by defeats or ties, but quite able to recover are Dartmouth, Army, Brown, VillaNo- T-here is one group who insists that Billy Conn will eventually develop into a real heavyweight threat. Billy will-have to develop something of a finishing punch before he rates serious consideration. He is almost certain to develop physically to the point where he is big enough to mingle with the big boys but so far h& hasn't been able to -do much damage against light heavies. Increased weight may- give his punch added authority but the chances are that it will also rob him o'f some oil his speed. The best bet Appears to be Pat Corniskey. Pat is a natural puncher. He hits hard enough to drop any man. But Pat is woefully short on experience. He is a real heavyweight and can take a punch fairly well. His handlers have shown no disposition to rush him into combat with' experienced sluggers and that, no doubt, is a very wise course to follow. . I va, Georgetown, Duke, Mississippi You haven't been hearing much about Patrick lately and that is because he is touring the hinterlands trying to learn the fine points of the game by mingling with youths of like experience. He is learning to fight by fighting. Father Time is on Comiskey's side. Louis will soon begin to slip a bit, if he hasn't already started. The- passing weeks improve Pat's chances because each week means added experience. Tie has years in which to improve and can bide his time for a shot at t:.c title. Maroons Capture Game Off White flx'Tnan football was introduced at. St. James School this past Aveek- end with the Mnroons scoring a 34 to 12 victory over the Whites. Piny was of the best throughout the contest with good passing and clever team play and blocking being a bright feature. These games will continue to be played between class teams of the school.

Surveying the prospects, here's how things shape up for the coming week: With a tapering off of the intersectional program, and no real title tilts in sight, the traditionally important "ivy league" games takes the headlines. Most, colorful of these is between Yale, beaten G-0 by Penn. and Army tied G-6 by Columbia. Undefeated Cornell, 20-7 winner over Princeton, meets equally undefeated Penn State. Penn faces Harvard, which may have picked up both importance and confidence in a. 61-0 route of Chicago. Columbia plays Princeton. Pitt's winged Panthers, after passing to a 14-13 triumph over Duke, don't get much rest when they meet unbeaten Duquesne. Carnegie, 21-0 winner over Case, tackles New York University, which finally went down before North Carolina, 14-7. Other good pairings are Holy Cross-Brown, Temple-Boston College and in the intersectional line, Auburn-Manhattan and Washington, and Lee-West Virginia. Despite a setback in its bid for national honors, Duke remains one of the better teams and shouldn't be troubled too much by Syracuse, which tied undefeated Georgetown, 13-13, last week. Tulane, which looked about as good as any southeastern conference team in its 7-0 victory over Fordhani, faces North Carolina, southern conference lead-, er. Alabama and Tennessee, after winning "breathers," clash in the most' important southeastern conference game. Kentucky faces Georgia, 13-0 victim of Holy Cross, and Vanderbilt meets Georgia Tech. The Commodores lost, 20-13, to Virginia Military in one of last week's .surprises. The only southern conference game listed is Thursday's meeting between Clemson and South Cai-olina. On the basis of Michigan's 27-7 victory over Jowa and Ohio State's 13-0 conquest of Northwestern, these teams look like the hest in the Big Ten. Notre Dame, after squeezing through three games with a seven- point total margin, meets Navy at Cleveland in the outstanding intersectional game. Nebraska, leading light of the Big Six after a 107 conquest of Iowa State, faces Baylor, dark horse of the southwest conference.

Pro Grid Games Attract Record Crowd Of 120,141 Fans Sunday _ * Detroit, New York And Washington Are Winners In Gruelling Battles; Teams Now Operating Smoothly. CHICAGO, Oct. 16. (/P).—The fattening-up process for National league teams contending for the pro football championship is over. Smooth operating teams in both divisions of the circuit ploughed through lower-flight outfits yesterday with a display of tremendous power and cunning, but only n week away is n real test for each of them except the 'Washington Rcciskins.

At Detroit, 30.- OOG saw the Cleveland Rams get away to a 7 to 2 lead on the Lions in the closest game of the day. But a second period touchdown put the Lions nhciirl. S-7. nncl a 10-ynrd pass, Darrell Tully to Bill Moore, gave Detroit, its second tally pud a final count, of 15 to 7. Tlie Giants and Washington likewise trailer! early, but came on to win. New York defeated Philadelphia, CO to 10 and Washington slaughtered Pittsburgh, 44 to 14, leaving the'two. victors still tied for top spot in the eastern division. The Eagles collected a field goal and their first touchdown of the season for a 10-point lead on the Giants, but the Champs got seven of them back in the second period and then rolled up 10 points in each of the last two periods for .in easy tnvimph. Washington had even less trouble winning although the Pirates, who have lost five straight games, led 7 to fi in the opening quarter. The Redskins piled up seven touchdowns, at least one in each period for the decision. One of their three- third-period touchdowns came when Frank Filchock. standing in the end zone, tossed a short pass to Andy Farkas on the four-yeard line. Farkas ran .06 yards to score. The play had started from the one-yard line, giving the Redskins a new record for the longest pass gain in the history of the pro league. The previous record was OS yards. In Chicago.

The final scores were 3 to 2 and 6 to 0. Prior to yesterday's twin bill the iremen had captured the opening game of the series and were favorites to win the title for the third time. "Lefty" Springer hurled the twin bill for the Birds and turned in a great job in each contest. In the opening game the Birds landed on the offerings of St. Clair for a total of nine hits while the Firemen could gatlier but seven off the former University of Maiylancl star hurler. Springer in winning the first game sent twenty of the Firemen back to the bench on strikes. G. Brashears at first base had three putouts and Kaetzel at third base had one. the balance going to Grove, the catcher.

College Girls Take Fling At Football And Express Eagerness For More Games GUXNISON", Colo., Oct. 16 (/P).— Western State College co-eds, after their first fling at football, were eager for more. That is, some of them were. Others, nursing bruised muscles, were all for giving the sport back to 7iierc man. "I hope we-can play a regulation game every year. 1 wouldn't be afraid to challenge the whole world." enthused Alice Shanks, of Fowler. Colo., captain and quarterback of the upper class eleven which won a 13 to 6 victory yesterday over a freshman and sophomore combination. "I love this football." chorused one of her teammates, Helen Ruth Wilcoxson, of Hotchkiss, Colo., a 115-pound tackle. "I love to bowl 'em over." Opal Pyles, of Fowler, a tackle for the losers, was skeptical. "I'm not so sure about this football. It's too rough," she said. "Some of the girls were awfully rough," conceded Rillie Lou Lindsey. of ("anon City, Colo., another tackle for the winners, "I like the game though." Reflectively, , she added, "it might have been better if we had worn knee guards." . The girls scorned the -padded trousers and cleated shoes worn as standard equipment by men and played bedecked in trim shorts and tennis shoes. They wore, however, regulation helmets, shoulder pads and jerseys. The tilt, was christened the "Powder Bcv.T' but take it from the referee. Elbsrt Barrett, freshman coach at the college, nobody pulled any punches. The girls, thanks to assistance volunteered by the varsity grid- ders, turned up with a variety of forward and lateral passes, end runs, line smashes, reverses and spinners and kicks. They blocked and tackled, too, as though they m-,ant it. "I had to dole out plenty of lina- ment to help repair the damage," said Barrett, grinning. The five leading agricultural states—named in order--a re: California. Texas, Illinois, Iowa and North Carolina.
