SO (#).—The '•recii Bay Packers put on another isplay of superior running and assing Sunda; afternoon to d?eat Washington, 24 to 14, in a Na- ional Football League game before i damp crowd of 25,000. Despite a ball made hard to han lie by intermittent rain and a slip- •>ery field, the Packers' aerial at- ack clicked for one touchdown )ass and helped set the stage for wo others. Pass interceptions by Green Bay Iso played an important part in the innl decision. Five of Sammy "laugh's heaves were pulled down iy alert Bay hacks and one of Hiehock's tosses was caught by a Barker. CORNELL MASCOT PLACED IN JAIL Cleveland. Oct. 29 (/P)—Climbing night, club potted palms landed Cornell University's bear cub mascot in the clink here tonight. Master Touchdown IV was a model of mascot conduct at the Cornell-Ohio State football game at Columbus Saturday. Afterward he was put on a special train on route to Cleveland. It. seems that some Cornell sym pathizers. high spirited over their victory, enticed "Touchy" off tho train and into a more or loss snooty Cleveland entertainment resort.

ELKS PIN LEAGUE STANDING Marketeers Have First Cage Drill A squad of ten local basketball players reported to Manager Bill Young for a workout held yesterday afternoon at the Armory by the Dorsey Marketeers. Due to the fact that Company B has been ordered out for drills the squad will not hold a practice session next Sunday but will stage a workout on Thursday night starting at 7:30 o'clock and all candidates are urged to report. Peck Morin was flashing his old time form and a newcomer Kelley showed to an advantage. The Mar- keteers plan to open their season on the night of November 21 playing in York, Pa,, while the opening home game will be staged on Thanksgiving night when a strong team will be brought to this city. Twenty-one games of the first half have been bowled, and no one team is a standout. Some look better on paper than others, but in this game it is the wood that counts, and not paper. Xo individual, or team, has set a very high mark to shoot at, so top scores are yet to be made. The treasurer reports excellent attendance, which means money in the "pot." Any team which is short a bowler should get itself a man, with approval of the committee. Attendance goes a long way toward making a winning team. 1 The lineup for 7:30 tonight: | Alleys 1 and 2, Noses versus Legs; I Alleys 3 and 4, Antlers versus I Teeth; alleys 5 and 6, Hoofs versus Eyes; alleys 7 and 8, Tails versus j Heads; alleys 9 and 10, Tongues! versus Ribs; alleys 11 and 12, Hides versus Ears; alleys 13 and 14. Necks versus Hips. j STAGG BACK IN BIG LEAGUE? STOCKTON, Gal., Oct. 29—(CP) —Is old Amos Alonzo Stagg gradually returning to the major college football scene? Anyway, the aged mentor of the College of the Pacific grid squad will get a crack at a big-time team next year when his eleven collides with none other than Notre Dame. GIANTS DEFEAT BROOKLYN PROS Brooklyn, Oct. 30 (#»)—The undefeated New York-Giants took, an- • other stride toward preserving- their National League professional;: football championship Sunday with 11 , a 7 to 6 victory over the Brooklyn" Dodgers. The decision rested on the Giants' one 65-yard touchdown march in the second period and their ability to hold the Brooklyn scoring to two field goals by Ralph Kerch eval, former University of Kentucky flash. Stalled on the Giants' 20-yard line in the first period Kercheval dropped back to the 27 and place kicked a perfect goal from a sharp angle. Again midway in the third quarter he booted one from the' Giants' 47-yard stripe for the longest field goal of the year. Kercheval also made two unsuccessful' tries in the last quarter. Mt.

Plan Third Track For West Vriginia Charles Tow- W. Va., Oct. 30 (f?) —Steeplechasing for the elite among horse followers, may become the newest turf development' in West Virginia. Dominant figures in the State's six-year history of legalized racing are dreaming of the day thoroughbreds will be scaling the barriers, of Waterford Downs in Hancock, county. A. J.

NO ORIGINALITY HERE NEW YORK, Oct. 29— (CP)—.. The Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants are the only two' big league pro football teams which have taken their names from ball, clubs representing the same com-, munities.

Oct. 20 (/?).—He layod the role of tho invisible man estorday. but we got a pretty fair roxy view of Banks McFadden, Clemson traveling man, as his ootball team defeated Navy at. hompson field, the Navy Stadium hich is so close to Chesapeake ay one of t.he end zones practically s dunking. McFaden was out will? a leg inert ion, but we were flanked in the ress box by a couple of South arolinans who painted a word pic- ire of their favorite, and spared ot the colors. To say the Clcmson defeated just ic Xavy team is inaccurate. It efcated 11 men and a goat, with ic gout providing one of the best ffonsive maneuvers of The aftcr- oon. The Xavy goat, groomed from card to tail, with a gaudy blanket tied snugly to its plump body. 1 rut tod un and down tho sideline i care of a midshipman, bin cncath its apparent unconcern it must have known tho Middios wcro taking a fair country licking. Lato in the game a scrimmage play sent players tumbling ovor the sideline. The goat, jumped back, glared balofully at the. sprawled bodies, then carefully selected a target. It wns a cowardly attack, directly from the north, and Clemson play- ors insist it was no accident the target was one of their number, a big, unidentified lineman who was busy picking himself up. The lineman bounced a coupio, of times, gave his assailant a. grieved look, and made himself scarce in a hurry. Rut wo wore talking about Me- Facldon. Our informants describe him as a long, lath of a youngster, n foot S inches tail and weighing only 175. But, they tell you, he can stand five yards back of that tough Clemson line and run, pass or kick with amazing efficiency. 0 "Now if that had been McFadden he would have been away," said one as a Clemson back, on a flank maneuver from a fake punt, was spilled. "If McFadden was quick kicking with that wind he'd put the ball into the bay," the other advised. "McFadden would mean two or three more touchdowns, he's absolutely the best I've seen." said the first a.s the Clemson score mounted to 15 points. The two best backs this corner has soon this year are George McAfee. Duke's two-legged whirlwind, an,l Botcn Shot ley, the Furman captain who walked down the field ! with half the Army team draped on him like confetti. And our proxy view of McFadden would seem to run the list to three, although it's vaguely possible that our informants are slightly prejudiced. Even so, any passer who misses his man just once in three games must be a fair country picth- er, and that's McFaddcn's record. He seems to do about everything i but field his own punts.
