!'· r s , SIX The News, Frederick, MEd., Wednesday, December S, MM Minors Finish Plaver Draft *f COLUMBUS, O., Dec. 4 Minor league baseball gave itself a vote ol confidence today by virtually, completing its player draft with selection of 153 players for $299.500. "This certainly shows how confident our people are of operating in fee future," said George Trautman, president of the National Association now holding Ms golden jtibilee convention. With onsy a few delayed drafts remaining, ihe minors tomorrow - will down to the more serious business of reviving attendance. " Trautman will address the delegates on the serious job .ahead as he gives his annual report at the first formal convention meeting. Among other things, Trautman will remind the folks of a 19 per cent decrease in attendance. The big business comes up Thursday when 37 amendments covering the minprs' most important problems will be put to vote. Frank l^awrence. president of the Portsmouth Club of the Piedmont League, was one of the most active men at today's draft by Class B and Class C leagues. Long after the other B leaguers filled their rosters, Frank was drafting away like mad. He picked eight in all, including fiw pitchers for §6,600. He is one of the dwindling corps of independent operators. Catcher Mickey Livingston was released by the Brooklyn Dodgers to let 'him take the managing job at Shreveport in the Texas League. Livingston was brought up by the Dodgers in late season when Roy Campanella was injured. Pinky May, ex-big leaguer who was let out as Alba7iy, N. Y., manager recently, signed to manage Spartanburg," S. C. in the Tri-State League. The New York Giants sold In- jEielder Hank Scbenz to Oakland of the Pacific Coast League. Schenz acquired from Pittsburgh in June, saw little action with the National League pennant winners. Season'g Second Win Gained By State School Maryland Stale School for the Deaf cagers won their second victory of the current season Tuesday night by measuring Taneytown High School, 59-27 on the Carroll County court.

Comets trailed badly from there until midway the final quarter when every player on the Camp Detrick squad belatedly began to rip the cords. Detrick outscored the winners by three points in the final period. Camp Detrick G. F. Tp.

Most Brilliant Run By Unsung Navy PleLe NEW YORK Dec. 4--M)--The 1951 college football season wound up with a burst of brilliant ball- carrying by the nation's backfield stars last Saturday, but it was a hitherto unsung plebe on Navy's defense platoon who turned in the most brilliant run of the day. That one 101-yard sprint by John Raster made him the Associated Press' defensive back of the week and earned him more headlines than "showboat" Boykin against Mississippi State. Raster nnd Boykin were named today In the AP's final awarding of the back of the week. Raster leaped from obscurity to fame in one jump as the Army cadets, trailing 14-0, drove toward the N.ivy goal late in the first quarter of the annual service classic. The 170-pound, 19-year-old plebe irom Toledo picked off Fred Meyers' short hurried pass a yard inside his end zone and set sail for the other end of the field- Getting the jump on most of the surprised cadets, Raster went nil the way wnnout being touched umil tackle Bill McPhail dived in desperation at the other goal line. His last-ditch dive was enough to s,pill Rasjter head over heels into the end zone, but the deed was clone. Raster also helped Navy to Us second touchdown t recovering Dick Inman's fumble of the Navy kickoff after Navy's first score. John Gurski jarred the ball loose from Inman and Raster covered it. ' It took a spectaclar performance, however, to overshadow Boykin s record-shattering scoring spree. The 190-pound senior' fullback from Greenville. Miss., ripped through the Mississippi State Jine for touchdown runs of 85, 14, 12, 17, 13, one and five yards --the greatest major college one- game performance in the National Collegiate Athletic Bureau's books. NAMED WINNER NEW YORK, Dec. 4, W)--Dick Kazmaier, P/incelon's ace tail-back, today was named winner of the Heisman Award, given annually by the New York Downtown Athletic Club to the outstanding college football player in the country. Kazmaier received 1,777 points, the highest total ever harvested by a player in the 17 years of the competition. A tribunal of -experts votes in the contest.

VERNON, la., Dec. 4 ,.., The faculty of Cornell College has voted to cancel a contract with the Oklahoma A. M. College, Still- water, Okla., for a dual wrestlln e meet at Mt. Vernon, on Februarj 23, 1952. "This action of the Cornel faculty is taken reluctantly," saio Jay B. MacCregor, dean of the college, "after careful considera tion which dates from Novembe: 5, 1951, and is in recognition o the fact that as yet no disciplinary action has been taken either bj Oklahoma A. M. College or the Missouri Valley Conference re garding the Bright incident which occurred in a football game between Oklahoma A. M. and Drake University on October 20 1951." ' The reference was to the injury of John Bright, Drake back. He suffered a broken jaw in the Aggie game. Drake authorities, contend :hat Bright was deliberately attacked by an Oklahoma Aggie player. Drake has ended its 43- year membership in the Missouri Valley Conference in protest againsj; the conference handling of its complaint. BBAKEMAN STRICKEN WASHINGTON, Dec. 4, (ff). Ernest C.

Vic Seixas and Dick Savitt, whol aspirations in tandem play, took al royal beating from veteran Adrian! Quist and Geoff Brown of Aus-l tralia, 7-5, 8-6, 6-2, in the'quarter-! finals of the Victorian tennis! championships. From here on both may devote! themselves to singles in prepara-l tion for the approaching cup! matches. Schroeder and Trabert.l on the other hand, continued tal look like a'sparkling combination as they hammered Australia's twol jrilliant juniors, Lewis Hoad and! Ken Rosewall, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3. Schroeder, of La Crescenta.1 ialif., is hot as a firecracker and! lis terrific all around play appears o*be lending inspiration to his 'outhful partner from Cincinnati. On the strength of their form today, they will be favored to elim- nate Australia's Ken McGregor and Mervyn Rose in their semi- inal Wednesday.
