The News, Frederick, MHL, Tuesday, December 4, 1951 Princeton Dominates NEW YORK, Dec. 3, (ff)--Undefeated Princeton dominated the 1951 All-Bast football team by placing dazzling Dick Kazmaier and four of his teammates on the two- platoon squad picked for the Associated Press today by Eastern coaches. Kazmaier, whose running and passing exploits won him the national individual offense title, was a unanimous choice for a backfield spot on the attacking unit. No other team in the East received more than two positions and five got that many. They were Holy Cross, Cornell, Navy, Bucknell and Pennsylvania. Remaining honors went singly to Yale, Colgate, Columbia, Brown, Dartmouth, Boston University and Villanova. The four other Princetonians were placed on the defensive team. They were Frank McFhee, brilliant six-foot-three end who starred on both offense and defense; Guard Victor Bihl, Center David Hickok and Halfback Richard Pivirotto, who mixed safety man duties with regular ballcarrying assignments. Versatile Backfield The offensive backfield is a versatile, hard-hitting unit which includes, in addition to Kazmaier, Boston University's passing ace, Harry Agganis, Holy Cross' Chuck Maloy, slick ball handler and Tquarterback: and Burt Talmage, a driving halfback who averaged about six yards a try for unbeaten Bucknell. Kazmaier led the East as well as the nation in total offense with 1.827 yards, of which 966 was piled up in passing. Agganis, who came out of the Marines to lend spark to a mediocre Boston University team, led the East in passing yardage with 1.402. He completed 104 of 185 throws. The 181-pound Talmage was second to a teammate. Brad Myers, for the lead in Eastern rushing figures but he had a better average per try. Myers, who made the second team, had 1,069 yards for 171 carries, Talmage had 1,025 for 150. Kazmaier set a total offense record for the East and also wound up with the highest mark for passing efficiency in Eastern history. He completed 62.6 of his forwards --77 out of 123 Another record setter on the team is Karl Kluckhohn, towering Colgate end who caught 45 passes for a total of 616 yards, both Eastern records. Uotla On Squad Kluckhohn teamed on the offensive eleven with Tom McCann, another fine pass receiver from Holy Cross. Tackle posts went to Paul Tetreault of Navy and Charles Metsler of Cornell while the center of the offensive line was manned by Guards Gerald Audelte of Columbia and John Pielro of Brown and Center William Vesprim of Dartmouth. Audette distinguished himself as an outstanding performer on both ofTense and defense, playing nearly 60 minutes of every game The same uas true of Robeit Spears, 205-pound Yale fullback; Nick Liotta. Villanova guard; and Ed Bell, Pennsylvania end, who headed the defensive team Liotia, a 225-pound workhorse from Everett, Mass, was found dead in his dormitory last week as the result of hanging, police said. Spears, a hard-running ball carrier and excellent defensive man, was almost a unanimous pick He xvas a standout on a team that had a mediocre season. Bell Is a six- foot-one, 195-pound junior who spilled rnnny an enemy play before it got started. Status Of Three Stars Is In Doubt COLUMBUS, O, Dec. 3 {/Pi--The doubtful status of Don Newcombe, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams is blocking all major trades at the baseball winter meetings. Neucombe and LnMaggio are question marks because nobody knows if they 11 play--whether Newcombe will be taken by the Army, whether DiMaggio will follow through, his retirement plans. The Williams situation is different. Ever since new Manager Lou Boudreau announced he'd trade anybody--Williams included--the rumor factories have been busy. Williams, hoxvever, remains in Boston. He may stay there. At least Joe Cronin, the Red Sox general manager, indicated so. "Nobody ever made us an offer for ^Williams," said Cronin, "and I don't think anybody can afford to make the kind of offer it would take. He's our left fielder now and probably will be in '52 " Still the Williams talk continues to confuse the trading situation in the American League. If Williams should be sold, there .would- be a mad race among the other clubs to "keep up with the Joneses." There is a strong feeling among baseball men that the only chance for a Williams trade is the New York Yankees--if DiMaggio steps down positively. The DiMaggio situation won't be clarified until next week when the clipper tells co-owner Dan Topping what he decided "after thinking it over." The Newcombe story probably is even more Important. If the Brooklyn Dodgers should lose him, they would be forced to get a starting pitcher, even if it meant giving up a front line star. With this in mind, the boys are sparring in a feeling out first round. ·v Buzzy Bavasi, Dodger vice-president, is hot on the trail of pitching help from Cincinnati. He wants Ewell BlackweU, Howie Fox or Herm Wehmeier. The Reds want a regular outfielder. WAGERING HITS PEAK PROVIDENCE, R. I, Dec. 3, (fP) --Wagering at Rhode Island's two tracks amounted to a record $76,713,196( in 1951, Stale officials said. This was nearly $15,000,000 more thaa was bet at Narragansett Park and Lincoln Downs last year. Lincoln Downs, which closed on · Saturday, saw $41,577,914 poured through its mutuel windows during the 54 days. Narragansett, operating two meetings of 24 days each, reported a total of $35,146,282 wagered, I Navy May Retain Notre Dame Box ANNAPOLIS, Dec. 3, (/P)---Navy probably will keep the old Notre Dame box that helped wreck Army as part of its basic grid offense next season. It depends on the personnel at Annapolis, but Coach Eddie Erdelatz talked of it today as something close to his heart. It should be. Erdclatz groped back almost two decades into his experience as a player and assistant coach to resurrect the system for last Saturday's game with Army. And the ancient box, almost a castoff in present-day collegiate and professional football, provided much of the ammunition to blast the Cadets with the heaviest touchdown barrage in Army-Navy history. The Middies won, 42-7, and they paraded as often from the box as from the T-formation, which had been Navy's style since Erdelatz took over the coacning task last year. Proud of his squad, Erdelatz was loath to credit anything impersonal for Navy's blazing performance. He did allow that "we probably wouldn't have done so well without the box." The box, made famous by Knute Rockne's great Notre Dame elevens, is a first cousin to the single- wing. Thp fundamental difference is in the line, unbalanced for the single-wing but balanced for the box. It's designed for power, with all four backs ranged behind one side of the line. A halfback and the fullback are deep, the quarterback and other halfback up close. The second halfback i on the wing, Clanking the end. her the tailback or fullback gc.» the ball on a direct pass from center. Gen. Bob Neyland employs a similar offense--with vast success-at Tennessee. His formation is generally described as a single-wing with a balanced line. Erdelatz disclosed he almost revived the box for the 1950 Army- Navy contest. After mulling it over, he decided to stand or fall with the "5" and the aerial throat it created. A wise choice it was. Navy dumped Army, 14-2 in the upset of the campaign. "This year I decided we had to try something different, so we put in th* box." Erdclatz said. This choice also paid off handsomely. 21-Game Season For Mountaineer Basketeers Mount St. Mary's 1051 basketball varsity starts a 21-game season schedule away from home, Saturday with few experienced survivors of last bcaon's conference championship squad and a brand new coach. Starting at Stale Teacheis College, Shipponsburfi, Pa , Saturday: the Mounties play at home next Tuesday evening, then take on Bridgewater College, at -Emmitsburg December 14, next week. Of last year's starters, only Ted Kachnowskl is still with the varsity. Jerry Ryan has some experience but not sufficient to spark the squad in the center position. Bill Clarke, formerly at State Teachers. College, Towaon. has taken over the Mount cage mentorship. He in a Fordham graduate with letters in collegiate basket- bull, baseball and football. He played and coached at Army airbases during the war and picked up his master's degree at Columbia after the war, while teaching physical education at Forest Hills (N. Y ) High School. I.ast year he returned to Columbia to continue work on his Ph. D., serving as frebhmen basketball coach. Coming to Mount St. Mary's, Coach Clarke has a young club, less than a handful of players with any experience and a tough slate of games including Villanova and Georgetown; besides representing the graduated championship team of the Mason-Dixon Conference. North Carolina State Releases Its Coach RALEIGH, N. C., Dec. 3, (IP)-North Carolina State College, a foot-mat most of the 1951 football season, released its head coach, Beattie Feathers, today. He will be replaced as soon as a three-member committee can hire « new coacn. Commlttccmen tald about thre* weeks would b« required to scieen prospects. Dr. H. A. Fisher, chairman, said the athletic council voted 13 to 1 last Saturday to remove Feathers, who has wound up nine seasons here. Fisher said he did not vote on the 15-member council. Fisher added the decision of the council was withheld so that notification could be given firit to Feathers who then was attending an all-sta high school gama at Charlotte. Fisher awjerted that later efforts to contact Feathers had been unsuccessful, and that the announcement was made today because it could no longer be postponed. Fisher said Feathers would be offered a position, probably in teaching physical education or as an assistant coach in order to completa « three-year contract which became operative at th« outset of the 1051 season. That contract was agreed upon after Feathers' Wolfpack team stunned Maryland with a 18-13 upset in 1950. Feathers' salary reportedly is about $8,000 a year. The 1951 Wolfpack won only three of ten games. In his nine years here, State won 98 fam«t «ni lost 41. Feathers was not available for comment.
