Their game time is 8:30. But for a margin somewhat thinner than a gnat's eyelash, tonight's finalists would have been Hoxie and Leachville. Hoxle lost to Coach Jimmy Fisher's spirited Chickasaws 77-75 in an overtime period and Leachville, alt' er leading throughout the game, fell to Jonesboro 61-58 In the last 25 seconds of play. East-West Tilt On Coast Today Shrine Benefit ConrestFeotures All-Americans * By BOB WELLS SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — With the ruckus of other postseason games fading offstage, the grid stars of 60 schools gather here today for what has been called "football's finest hour" — the 29th East- West game. Watched .by an overflow crowd of 63,000; at Kezar Stadium here and additional millions over nationwide television and radio hookups, "the men who run BO kids may walk" close out their college grid careers for the benefit of the Shrine crippled children's hospl- tal. Bun vs. Pasg Preceded by lavish pageantry, the game pitted an Eastern ground steamroller against the passing and deception of the finest college football talent in the West. Rated 6>/ 2 point favorites, the East, coached by Bay Eliot of Illinois, presented a crushing line and the hard running of backs Johnny Lattner and Neil Worden of Notre Dame; Gene Filipski, former MjfArmy star who wound up at Villa~'nova, and Steve Meilinger of Kentucky, plus many others. The West, led by Coach Chuck Taylor of Stanford, had the passing of Bobby Garrett of Stanford—the nation's leading thrower — and Francis (Cotton) Davidson of Baylor, the receiving of ends like Tom Nlckoloff of Southern California and the break-away run posslbl- Ities of backs like Veryl Switzer of Kansas State. The kickoff was set for 1:30 p.m., (PST) (4:30 p.m., EST), after en hour and a half of pageantry featuring Michigan State's colorful band, which traveled here from the Spartans' Rose Bowl triumph at Pasadena yesterday. Only two men may see limited action—Lattner because' of a shoulder separation Buffered in training early this week and end Sam Morley of Stanford, who reinjured an old knee wound in West drills. Mosley Hits Tommy Mosley tossed one In to knot the score at 73-73 with only four seconds on the clock, but Hoxie grabbed a quick 75-73 lead in the overtime. Then Red Childress, who had his best day of the season in hogging rebounds, put In a free throw to bring Blytheville within one point, 75-74. Seconds later Childress dumped a field goal and Mosley hit a free throw to bring the Chicks home with their ninth consecutive victory without a defeat. Leachville led Jonesboro most o the way and, with 25 seconds to go held a two-point advantage. Then Jonesboro's Hunt cooll tossed in four straight free throw in those fading seconds to brin the Hurricane out on top. 16-16 at Quarter .After a 16-16 first quarter, Jones boro took a 30-27 halftime lead but the Lions came back to leac 50-43 going Into the final ctuarter But Leachville could make only eight points in that last chapte while Jonesboro was getting 18 ant that was the difference. Pattern of both games was siml- ar. Blytheville trailed Hoxie 18-K at the end of the first quarter am was behind 37-31 at the end of thi first half. But the Chicks closed the gap somewhat in the third quarter as they racked up 22 points, Childress getting seven of them. Margin Narrowed Going into the final period. Hoxie saw its lead sliced to 55-53. Mosley's quick swisher in the final seconds sayed the game for the struggling Maroons. He took Childress' tip-off on a jump ball and pumped it through from ten feet away to tie it up. Hoxle barely had time to throw the ball in before the regulation game ended. Dexter West, Bobby Jones and Bobby Hill all fouled out for the Chicks during the game. But Hoxie's hottest scorer, Sullens, who had 24 points, also went out on fouls in the final quarter. Fall House Blytheville fans planning to see tonight's game had best get an early start for seats will be at a premium. The 3,000-seat capacity Arkansas State College gymnasium was packed last night and tonight's Class A and B finals are expected to draw in excess of seating capacity. Cave City and Poughkeepsie meet in the class B finals. Their game gets started at 7 o'clock. The Blytheville-Jonesboro game will be broadcast over KLCN-PM.

(AP) — Coach Jim Tatum and his Mary land football team tasted some of their own medicine todaj after having the.props knocked out beneath their high anc mighty position by Oklahoma's 7-0 Orange Bowl victory yesterday. The elected kingpins of 1953 lulled a similar stunt by beating Tennessee which had been the No. team of 1951 In the Sugar Bowl Maryland then had been ranked hird while Oklahoma went against Maryland rated fourth. Fourth Shutout Even more surprising than the act that Oklahoma won xvas that Maryland failed to score. It was nly the fourth time in Tatum's even years at Maryland that it lappened and it was the first time n the past 51 games. The team which had rolled up 18 points effortlessly in beating 10 earns had all the opportunity in le world to score in the first pe- iod. Its failure against an Okla- oma line that charged with shud- ering ferocity proved the turning oint. Oklahoma had only five ofien- :ve plays in the first quarter while Maryland moved to a first down n the 4 and couldn't score and ,arted other drives from the Okla- oma 32 and 24 without success. Field Goals Mis* Their third good chance carried o the six at the start of the sec- nd period but here fullback Ralph 'elton missed a field goal. Having looked Maryland in the ye for more than 15 minutes and ome out top dog, Oklahoma took Sports Roundup— W ho 11 Lead N LAI I-Star Team? By OATLE TALBOT NEW YORK (AP) — Here we go again, and did you know that one of the big problems facing President Warren Giles of the National League in the coming year is to select a manager for his league in its annual all-star tussle against the hated Americans at Cleveland. It't going to require some tall thinking. By custom the honor would have fallen to Charlie Dressen, who managed the league champion Brooklyn Dodgers, but Charlie is long gone out to Oakland In the Coast League, the first winning pilot to resign or be fired since the mid-summer classic was thought up. Sub Pilot The closest thing to a parallel trose in the 1948 game and again Brooklyn figured in the mixup. The Dodgers had won the flag the previous season under Burt Shotton who was filling in at the Job while Leo Durochcr, the club's regular manager, sat out a year's suspension slapped on him by Commissioner Happy Chandler for littlng an infinitive, or some- ijpl Tal When Leo came back in '48, Shotton retired temporarily, to his fishing chores in Florida. Ford Frick, then president of the league, got around that one, as we recall, by Inviting Barney to fly back for a day and Join Durocher in co- rranaslng the all-star aggregation. j»i may be seen, though, that hirdly was the same situation that confronts Giles. This time the Dodgers have an Incoming manager named Walter Alston who Is so fresh from the rr.'nor leagues that the .paint's still wot. He will manage his first bin IMIII next April, H« bad nothing whatever to do with Brook-*- lyn's winning the '53 pennant, having gotten no closer to Ebbets Field than Montreal. It is difficult to see how he rates the coveted all-star assignment against Casey Stengel, the American League's permanent guest artist. What, then are the alternatives offered Giles? Well, there's Ores- sen, and no one can rise up and say that the little guy didn't do a superb job of driving his team to the pennant, no matter what happened in the World Series and no matter how many letters he might have co-authored to Walter O'Malley, his club president. Dresser, and Grimm Giles hasn't gotten around to asking us yet, but Chuck has to be our choice lor at least a piece of the all-star Job. For sentimental purposes, if nothing else, we feel that the National League should send him a round-trip ticket and insist that he sit on the bench during the festivities. We will guarantee, personally, that President Brick Laws of the Oakland team will consent to get along without his manager for a few days. If Giles can't see giving Chuck the entire assignment, then we recommend that he be permitted to co-manage with Charlie Grimm, whose sccond-plnce Milwaukee Braves gave the Dc-'-rcrs what few un:rsy moments they had all MMOB. Gosnell Loses In Overtime To Luxor a & Gosnell's boys lost their third game ol the season and their second in overtime play last night as Luxora posted a 57-53 victory over the Pirates at Oosnell. The Luxora girls, led by M. Clark and L. Clark, garnered a 43-22 victory in the opener. Luxora's sky-scraping center,. Sullens, once kept his average high as he socked 28 markers into the nets.

But Oklahoma yielded no more and Faloney punted to wind up his brief appearance. "Greatest Fight" Oklahoma also lost its first string quarterback, Gene Calame for the second half after he had completed every one of four passes. He hurt his shoulder jusl before the half ended and Jack van Pool then held the fort. . Wilkinson credited "effort" and "the greatest fight we ever made" for his triumph. Grigg, who put Maryland behind In the score for the first time this season, also closed the lid on any chance of tying It. In the last quarter, he recovered a fumble on the Maryland 45 and intercepted a 42- yard pass in his end zone in the last four minutes.

Lu Perez Has Facts Of Ring Life Rough Bout With Golordo Provides Test By JACK HAND NEW YORK (AP) - No more gentleman of the ring for Lulu Perez. The 20-year- old Brooklyn featherweight has learned the facts of ring life. Perez, qualifying for a Feb. 26 bout with Willie Pep. the old master, tore up the book of etiquette last night in a boxing- wrestling match with Davey Gallardo of Los Angeles at Madison Square Garden. No. Three This was No. 3 of the Perez- Gallardo series and probably the last. All three officials voted for Lulu—Referee Ruby Goldstein 7-2-1 Judge Jack Gordon 6-3-1 and Judge Arthur Susskind 6-4. The AP card also was 6-4 for Lulu. They faulted Perez for letting Gallardo rough him up in their Nov. 27 fight when Davey avenged a September TKO defeat by upsetting Lulu. Nobody could fault Perez for playing .the Lord Fauntleroy after his most recent outing. First he wrestled O a 11 a r d o through the ropes. When he got up and offered to touch gloves, Lulu answered with a right to the body. Naturally, the crowd booed. "It Don't Pay "I decided to stop being • gentleman, it don't pay," uid Lulu in his dressing room. "I don't care what people say. He roughed me up so I roughed him." The crowd of S.242, paying $8,201, didn't seem to appreciate Lulu's efforts too much, although most agreed he won. It was his 34th victory in 38 pro fights, an im- jortant decision over a man who was ranked No. 5 challenger to hampion Sandy Saddler. Oallardo's left eye was sliced ipen again, leaking through most if the fight. He said after the fight hat he was stale from too much raining.

The Spartans, No. 3, put on * scorching second-half drive to come from behind and give the Big Ten its seventh victory in eight Rose Bowl pact appearances, 28-20, over UCLA.

Tough On Defense In the Orange Bowl the Sooners, who gained more ground than any other team all season, showed Maryland they were masters at defense as well. Twice in the first j half they stopped the Terps inside the 10 yard line. And in the fina period Origg halted the last Mary land threat by intercepting a pas; in the end zone. Maryland had allowed the leas yards by rushing of any team bu the Oklahomans churned 80 yards in 11 plays for the game's only score. Grlgg took a pltchout from Gene Calame and went 26 yards for the tally.

Second Half Was Difference That's When Spartans Turned On The Steam By JACK STEVENSON PASADENA, Calif. W)—Michigan State's Spartans proved once again that it takes two halves to make a whole as they came from behind for the 28-20 Rose Bowl victory over the UCLA Bruins. For It was the sparkling play of the green clad crew from Lansing in the second half yesterday that gave the Big Ten the bowl title again after a year's sojourn IB th« Pacific Coast Conference. Repeat Loomed During the first half it appeared that UCLA would repeat the feat of USC, which last year turned back the Big Ten Invaders for the first time in the history of the bowl rivalry between the two conferences dating back to 1947. The Bruins gained 154 yards during the two opening quarters to St for Michigan State and the score stood 14-7 in their favor. But as the Spartans took th» third quarter kickoff before the' capacity crowd of 101,000 It was * different club—fired apparently by 2oach Biggie Munn during the in- .emission. In 14 crisp play* the Spartans went 78 yards with Leroy Bolden going over from one yard out, and fullback Evan Slonac added the second of his of rtsrualhgt conversions; to tie the count. Esploiloo In three plays the Brulni couldn't gain after taking the kickoff, punted, and the Spartans went in the march again. This one went '3 yards, abetted by an 18-yard lass from quarterback Tommy Yewcic to Bolden, a 27-yard run iy right halfback Billy Wells and i 15-yard penalty. That put the Spartans ahead to stay. After . UCLA scored again in the fourth jerlod, but missed the conversion, Wells scooted 62 yards with a punt or the clincher. Billy, the usually unsung mem- ier of the Big Ten co-champions' jony backfield, was the game's eadlng ground gainer with 80 yards rushing In addition to his mnt return, and was voted the ;ame's outstanding player by the [elms Athletic Foundation.
