EIGHT THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., MONDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1939. Sports of Sorts 11 GRID TOWERS' REACH PAYOFF MONTH UNDEFEATED A few short months ago, Al Davis was rated one of the brightest prospects in the lightweight division but today, with added height and weight, it looks as though he would have trouble making the welterweight limit and next year would be certain to be battling as a middleweight. A couple of months ago, he stood five feet five—today he's five feet seven. Davis has had 35 battles and has yet to have a decision go against him. Jack Sharfcey Jr. held him to a draw on two occasions. Twenty of his bouts ended in knockouts. Al is a fighter of the old school. He prides himself on being a "toughy" and delights in beating up .the "gentlemen boxers." To al his friends, he is simply "Buminy' and he always says: "This is Bum my" when answering the phone. Davis has one regret about his new weight. He would like to meet Lou Ambers, the lightweight champion in the ring, but is afraid he i growing too rapidly. He used to be very fond of Lou but now wants to fight him because he lost $90 betting on Ambers when the Herkimer Hurricane lost his lightweight title to Henry Armstrong in their first meeting more than a year ago Cornell's Defeat Of Ohio State Adds Prestige To Eastern Teams Army, Which Hasn't Shown Much Thus Far, Pitted Against Notre Dame, Which Barely Nosed Out Carnegie Tech Saturday. Davis has a secret ambition but he doesn't like- to talk about it now. Some day, when he hangs tip his boxing gloves, Al wants to be ft baker. Well, not exactly a baker, but he wants to run a bakery. He knows scores of recipes but be prepared to protect yourself at all times should you ask him for one of his cake concoctions. But he might tell a sincere questioner how to make a delicious apple strudel. Davis is a right-hander in the ring, but a southpaw in everything else. 'Tm not a southpaw when I fight," says Al. "But I am naturally left-handed. Maybe my stance is a bit different from the average right-hander but that is only to get more power behind my left took.

KELLEYS CAMERA SHOP 16 W. WASHINGTON ST By HUGH S. FULLERTON, JR. NEW YORK, Oct. 30 (/P).—The "payoff" month of the college football season—November—starts this week with just the kind of games that can be expected in the more important half of the campaign. The first half of the battle for national honors, winding up last Saturday, produced about the results that could be expected. There were innumerable "upsets"; at the start, dwindling in number as the teams began to show rea strength and weakness. The end o October found not more than eleven unbeaten and untied teams still in the race for the mythical crown. Starting part two, the "major' unbeaten and untied teams are: East—Cornell, Duquesne, Catholic: South—Tennessee, Kentucky; Midwest—Notre Dame, Michigan; Southwest — Texas A. and M.; Rocky Mountain—Colorado Mines; Pacific Coast—Oregon State, San Jose (Cal.) State. Tied but still undefeated are Dartmouth and Georgetown, in the east: Tulane, North Carolina and Richmond, in the south; Nebraska and Oklahoma, in the midwest; Southern California and U.C.L.A., on the west coast, and Utah (tied twice), in the Rocky Mountain big seven. Not all of these teams, of course, can be considered national title prospects. By the same token, there are a lot of real contenders which have been beaten, often by the one point that sometimes spells the difference between a perfect season and a ruined one. Contenders for sectional and conferences championships take in a ot more ground. The situation shapes up like this for the first week-end of November: It's been a long time since any one team did so much to aid the prestige of eastern football as Cornell did last Saturday by whipping Ohio State, 23-14, after spotting the Big Ten "powerhouse" the first two touchdowns. That triumph automatically installed the big red team as the east's No. 1 power, and next Saturday's game against Columbia, despite the Lion's decisive 26-7 win over Virginia Military, shouldn't, hurt Cornell's stock. Duquesne, 13-0 winner over Texas Tech Friday, faces another stiff intersectional test against Marquette, and Catholic, 14-0 winner over Miami, meets Tulsa of the Missouri Valley conference. Dartmouth encounters its traditionally-troublesome enemy, Yale, but off the Green's easy 16-0 win over Harvard and Yale's 27-7 licking by Michigan, Dartmouth figures to remain undefeated. Georgetown, after beating George Washington 7-0, meets West Virginia, which tied South Carolina 6-6, Friday. The biggest games on the eastern schedule put Army, which hasn't shown much this season, against Notre Danie and Harvard against Princeton, which tuned up with a 26-12 win over Brown. Notre Dame's fine unbeaten team just managed to stave off Carnegie Tech, 7-6. while the Cadets routed Ursinus, 46-13. Pennsylvania, knocked out of the picture by a 30-6 licking from North Carolina, meets Navy, 15-7 victim of Clemson. Fordham, which came back as an eastern threat by whipping Pitt, 27-13, tackles Rice's hapless Owls in an intersectional test. New York U., 14-13 winner over a stubborn Georgia team, :ases off against LaFayette. Boston College and Holy Cross, still ;anked among the eastern leaders, play Auburn and Providence, respectively. It's Tennessee, the nation's rank- ng team in last week's Associated Press poll, against Louisiana State with the South-Eastern Conference title as the probable stake. The Volunteers knocked off Mercer, 170, in last Saturday's breather, while L. S. TJ. turned back Vanderbilt, 12-6, when Ken Kavanaugh caught two more passes. Georgia Tech plays Duke, which ;ained a second-place tie in the Southern Conference with a hard- won 6-0 decision over Wake Forest. Tulane has an open date. North Carolina, with the Southern Conference pack on its heels, returns to its own league to play North Carolina State, while Richmond tackles V. M. I. Virginia meets Chicago, and Miami plays Texas Tech in the south's best intersectional tilts.

Washington St. Phone 75 Pimlico Will Present $500,000 Trio In Vanderbilt Dream Race HIGH SMEARS BALTIMORE, Oct. 30 (£>).— There's going to be right much of a horse race Here Wednesday, with hree thoroughbreds whose earn- ngs total more than half a mil- ion dollars battling it out in the Pimlico Special. Alfred G. Vanderbilt, president of the Maryland Jockey Club, said that the purpose of the Special was "to give the racing public a classic event comparable to the world series or a national championship." Accordingly, Vanderbilt arranged a $10,000 winner-take-all race over a mile and three-sixteenths with the entries nominated for the Special in a national poll. Seven possible starters were named, but only these remain ready to run: W. L. Brann's Maryland- bred Challedon, the- three-year-old champion; C. S. Howard's Kayak II, the Argentine-bred sensation of the West Coast, and T. B. Martin's good Kentucky-bred router, Cravat. Dave Woods, publicity director ot the Jockey Club, put out a Pimlico Special press brochure containing these revealing facts about the three horses entered: Challedon, in ,two years of racing, has started 20 times, won 12 races, placed second twice, showed four times and was out of the money twice. He has earned $242,235. Kayak II, four years old, has started 16 times, won 12 races, placed second three times and showed position once. Never out o fthe money, he lias earned $165,025. Four-year-old Cravat, in three years of campaigning, has started 39 times, won nine races, scored eight seconds and thirds, been out of the money 14 times and earned $120,705. This will be the third running of the special. Samuel Riddle's War Admiral won it first in 1937 but Lost last year to Howard's Seabis- cuit. The 'Biscuit, from a walk-up start, set a track record of 1:563-5 for the mile and three-sixteenths, the distance at which Challedon holds the world record of 1:543-5.

HE'S SEEN ENOUGH OF PITT STADIUM PITTSBURGH, Oct. 30 (#>).— Pitt Stadium is an awfully lonely place at night, take it from Donald Milne, 12, of Uniontown, Pa., •who got lost there in the exodus of 69,000 excited fans after the Notre Dame-Carnegie Tech football game Saturday. When he became separated from his father, Donald figured the smartest thing to do was to wait right there until his dad missed him and came back. But that didn't happen until 24 hours later, after dad, police and the missing person bureau looked many other places for him. Donald, alone and shivering in the cold, walked about the huge bowl all night to try to keep warm. Yesterday, going in for warm clothes and hot food in a big way, he remarked: "I've seen enough of that stadium to last me .. lifetime." P. S.: In case you didn't hear, Notre Dame won 7-6. C. V. A. L.

Game Here Saturday Hagerstown High smears Mar- tinsburgh all over the Potomac street gridiron Saturday to win 32 to 0. A. crowd of 2,000 saw the locals march up and down the field at will to cop their first C.V.A.L. victory of the season to date. The Maroon and Gray struck quick in the opening period when after a steady march down field against the wind B. Russell faded back and tossed a touchdown pass to Fahrney in the end zone. A pass to Jeffrey made good the conversion. In the second period the first stringers scored again when Jeffrey was shaken loose for a 30 yard trot and as he was being tackled lateral- ed to G. Russell who scampered the balance of the distance for a score without a hand being laid on him. It was here that Coach Semler pulled his varsity out and sent in his second stringers who finished out the game with the aid of the balance of the sq|iad. Fryer registered again for Hagerstown in the second period when the Maroon and Gray picked up plenty of yardage on an exchange of kicks. Fryer went through right tackle for the score. {•Shortly after the third period had opened tip Hagerstown advanced to the West Virginians' 35 yard stripe and here Schnebley faded back and tossed a beautiful forward to Foltz standing in the end zone for a score. And in the final period Fi - yer rushed across from the 2 yard line for the final score of the day. Martiusburg could not hold their heavier opponents in check but at that the first downs were about even if the long scoring plays were left out of the picture. The West Virginians were outclassed, rushed and in fact outplayed in every department of the game. Their pass defense was weak and their attack bogged down time and again after making repeated gains. The locals had a decided advantage in kicking and several quick boots from Garrison's toe caught the Orange and Black off guard and were downed on the 1 and 2 yard lines, forcing Martinsburg to kick out of danger from behind their goal line. Hagerstown clicked in everything they attempted. Their running attack was smooth and their passing was of the best. The line out- charged Martinsburg and the blocking and tackling was the best that the Maroon and Gray has displayed this year. For the visitors Friski and Beard played outstanding games.

BALTIMORE, Oct. 30 (#>).—Most of Maryland's football teams will go to Pennsylvania next week in an attempt to change their luck— which has been pretty bad up to now. Five of the state's seven college teams will play in Pennsylvania and the other two will also play outside the state. The Pennsylvania games are: Navy-Pennsylvania at Philadelphia; Washington-Dickinson, Carlisle, Western Maryland- Bucknell, Lewisburg; and Johns Hopkins,Allegheny, Meadville. ML St. Mary's will play St. Francis on St. Francis' field and Blue Ridge will play liampden-Sydney in Virginia. Washington College and Hopkins, which recently "de-emphasized" its football, playing only for fun and before invited spectators, brought in Maryland's two lonely victories last week-end. Washington licked Juniata 13-0, and Hopkins downed Haverford 12-7. The rest of the melancholy toll was: Clemson 15, Navy 7; Florida 14, Maryland 0; Potomac State S, Blue Ridge 0; St. Bonaventure- 7, Mt.

FINLAND SAYS IT ffOld GIVE UP OLYMPICS Olympic Headquarters Considering Moving Them From Finland To Detroit HELSINKI, Oct. 30 (#>).—Erik Frenckell, Vice Mayor of Helsinki and head of the city's Olympic Games committee, declared today, "Finland has no intention of giving up the Olympic Games. If the war continues until next year, the committee naturally will be obliged to meet to consider the possibility of maintaining its original plan." NEW YORK, Oct. 30 (£>).—The 1940 Olympics became an interna- tioning guessing: game today because of an announcement from Olympic headquarters in Switzerland that they might be transferred from Helsinki, Finland, to Detroit Nobody could be sure what it was all about, inasmuch as Finland still is planning to hold the garnet and Detroit has not asked lor them recently, and isn't sure it wants them on such short notice. There perhaps has been no more startling "communique" since Europe's war began than the proclamation of the- international Olympic committee in -Lausanne yesterday that the 1940 games would be held in Detroit if Finland renounces its right 'to stage them. The committee's communique said all national Olympic committees had been polled as to whether they would send teams to Helsinki and that if their replies were negative, as many were expected to be, Finland would renounce and clear the way for removal of the Olympics to. the United States where many of the neutral nations were certain to compete. The consternation this caused was something to behold. Avery Brundage, president of the American Olympic committee, retorted, "There must be come mistake. The committee would not award the games without consulting us and we've heard nothing. In Detron Mayor Richard Reading, with great civic enthusiasm, declared his city would "welcome the games with open arms." But his own chairman of a committee to obtain the Olympics in 1944, Frederick C. Matthai, expressed surprise at the action and added: "There isn't sufficient time to make plans for a bang-up Olympiad and a track meet without France, Great Britain and Germany in the contention would not be much of an attraction. Finland has a tremendous investment in the games and it may mean bankruptcy for someone if they are not held." AN'T SCORE ON VOLS—JOCK KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 29— (CP)—Not only can Tennessee lick other current college football teams, hut it's doubtful whether any other squad can score on them.
