14 -PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1946- Mirrors of Sport By Havey J. Boyle PoaVG&xttla Sports editor fA Tribute to a Great One His biographer will probably write that Bill Dudley even knew when to get hurt. The great Steeler star, after playing an iron man role through 10 games, was injured in the closing stages of the eleventh game of the season when the contest seemed lost beyond recall. The historian may add it was another example of Bill's exquisite sense of timing. Pittsburgh fans and the thousands in other cities who enjoyed his artistry will hope that the gallant Dudley soon will be recovered. Has Pittsburgh seen the last of the great backfield ace as a player? Between the lines of one of his talks recently Dudley seemed to be saying he was giving thought to calling it a day as a player. It is a decision that will be left up to him, of course. His work here entitles him to the greatest consideration. Dudley's pass interceptions one short of the all-time league record of 11 helped change the pattern of play of at least two teams this season. The way Steve Owen of the Giants and then last Sunday Greasy Neale of the Eagles preferred to stay landlocked rather than risk Dudley's intercepting, was one of the finest compliments ever paid a player in the professional league. Until someone better comes along he will be known as Mr. Pittsburgh in professional football circles. Had his club won the eastern title Dudley likely would have won the most-valuable prize. In spite of the official award, Pittsburghers will still lean to the opinion that if Bill wasn't the most valuable he was so close that it's not worth arguing about. Against Pittsburgh, Boston appeared to be the weakest entry in the eastern section of the pro league and it probably was. Yet the comeback of the Herb Kopf team in the last four games may silence talk that the Boston coach is on his way out. In their last four games the Kate Smith entry in the league was beaten by only three points by the Washington team; held the Giants to an amazing 28 to 28 tie; beat Los Angeles 40 to 21 before Los Angeles defeated the Giants, and ran over Detroit 34 to 10 after Detroit had played Pittsburgh off its feet. In spite of this, next season we all probably will have preconceived notions of the Boston team coming from their two defeats suffered at the hands of the Steelers and will count them as very lowly. That the Boston team stuck so tenaciously to Governali instead of Dancewicz as a passer brought criticism in Pittsburgh yet Coach Kopf knew the situation better than his critics and in the Detroit game, at least, his judgment was confirmed with loads to spare. Detroit fans rate Governali on a par with such fabulous passers as Baugh, Luckman, Waterfield and Christman. Certainly, the Lions counting the difference in support offered Governali and that given the other passers consider him the best pitcher they faced all season. In the boxscores Luckman, Waterfield and Christman are ahead of him, although he hit his receivers 163 times for a total of 1,156 yards. That such a one was pinned down and made to look so bad that fans wondered why he was preferred over an understudy is another tribute to the Steelers. The Steelers probably would have won the pennant with the former Columbia star pitching for them. The way the Steelers sold out for their local games suggests to several fans that the locals ought to try to make a deal to rent the Pitt Stadium. It would not be an unmixed blessing. From the business side of the argument there are several good reasons why the Steelers ought to stay at Forbes Field. First and foremost is that leaving the Pirate orchard would be an open invitation to competition here from the rival big league. The Pirate ownership would hardly stand by idly while some $60,-000 or $75,000 rental drifted away. There is a pact between the Steelers and the Pirates which extends over the next few years. Secondly, the important phase of promotion under the heading of advance sale of season tickets would take quite a slump if larger accommodations were provided. Assured that the extra seating capacity Would allow for late comers, to get seats, fans would operate on a game-by-game basis, with the weather and other considerations in mind. Finally, the Stadium is not for rent because by the small print in the money grants given the local school the Stadium cannot be turned into a profit-making pitch for outside interests. There is still opportunity to expand the football seating capacity at Forbes Field enough probably to reach the saturation point in local interest for some years to come. Archer Meets Armitage-, Bee Bee Faces Burton Ten-Rounders Feature Show At The Garden? By Al Abrams The business of busting: teaks, politely referred to in better circles as the rr.anly art of self defense, gets under way again tonight at The Gardens when the Rooney-MeGinley Company offers two fine 10-rounders as co-features on a rive-bout program. One of the top matches finds Jackie Armitage of New Kensington stepping up in class and striving for fame in meeting Freddie Archer, highly-ranked Newark welterweight. The other offers Gene Burton, hard-punching New York boy, in with Bee Bee Wright, clever Clairton boy. Archer has been installed a 12-5 favorite because of his experience and better record. The boxing books show hint to have whipped fellows like Beau Jack and Fritzie Eivic, twice each, plus owning a Victory over Ike Williams, the lightweight champion. A boy With marks like this rates the nod over the comparatively inexperienced Armitage, even though the latter has been coming along at a fast pace in recent months. . Armitage has surrounded himself with a strong board of Strategy in Ray Arcel, Bill Joost ind Johnnv Dunn, who will be in his corner when he enters the ring gainst Archer. The clean-cut Allegheny valley boy has many sup porters here and will have a root- j (Continued on Xext Page) i m L f ' J Ironmen Bow to Boston Ouint in o '9 Herman Set To Play Third Base New Pilot Unable To Make Deals ; Shops for Catcher By Vince Johnson Los Angeles, Dec. 2 Manager Billy Herman of the Pirates, a pretty good judge of ball players as well as a good ball player himself, said today that a young fellow by the name of Herman will be the regular third baseman of the Pirates next year. Herman, attending the major and minor leagues' Human Merchandise Mart here, has found that President Frank E. McKin-ney's bank full of cash can't buy so much as a bat boy. Baseball in this post 4-F era, is interested in men not money. There has been seme talk that Whitey Kurowski, Cardinal third baseman who recently was operated on for removal of a bone chip from his left arm, will be on the block. Will Play Third Manager Herman would like to get him, a circumstance which would automatically put Ball Player Herman out of a job. "I sure wouldn't be playing third. Not with Kurowski around," said Billy. But the one player the Cardinals would have been interested in getting from the Pirates is Bob Elliott. Elliott already has been traded to the Boston Braves for Herman. This adds up to what might be called an impasse. So Billy figures he'll be at third for the Bucs when spring training starts in Florida in a couple of months. This does not . necessarily mean that Lee Handley will leave the club; he may be kept in a utility role. "I can play more than 100 games next year, barring injuries," predicted Herman. "I played 128 this year and batted about .300. And I was out six weeks with infected legs, at that." He will encounter some opposition to the move, but it won't exactly be official. For years Mrs. Herman has been wanting her hubby to quit playing actively. Billy's answer always has been, "Uh huh, some day." Shops for Catcher Then he would go out and plav 100 more games. Herman now 37, has been doing this for 14 years, excluding two years with the navy. "Both Cincy and Chicago have catchers I'd like to have for the Pirates," mentioned Billy. As- far as the Cubs are concerned, this would mean either Clyde McCullough or Bob Schef-fing. As for the Reds, it would mean Ray Lamanno or Ray Mueller. You can take your pick but try to pay for them with money. As p. matter of fact, Billy was scheduled today to talk with Manager Charlie Grimm. They weren't expected to spend all their time reminiscing about Billy's days with the Cubs. The rumor was that Charlie, who wouldn't be doing it for a laugh, would offer Bill Nicholson for Billy Cox. Magnanimous of Charlie, isn't it? If the deal falls through which it will, with a thud Charlie mignt try trading Nicholson to the Smithsonian In stitution for a wooden Indian.

PCL Draws Resolution For Major Status Immediate Reeogiiit ion Will Be Asked Of National and American Los Angeles, Dec. 2 UP) Pacific Coast League directors, holding their annual meeting here today, adopted a resolution asking for immediate recognition as a third major baseball league. The resolution will be presented to the National and American League heads at their meeting here Thursday. Coast League President Clar ence Rowland announced a com mittee, composed of Charles Graham, San Francisco; Victor Ford Collins, Hollywood, and himself, would present the resolution to the major leagues. The action is the latest move in the efforts of the Triple A Coast League to attain big league status. A similar resolution was adopted and presented at the major leagues convention a year ago. At that time the big league mogul3 promised to consider the request and later assigned a com mittee to inspect Coast League properties. The committee pre sented certain conditions to the Coast League preliminary to pos sible recognition. Trautman Gains Support President Rowland said these conditions, including enlargement of parks and improvement of other facilities either had been met or were in tne process as building materials became avail able. He said plans were under way for the building of new parks at Portland and San Diego. Support for George Trautman of the Detroit Tigers as successor to Judge W. G. Bramham as boss of the minor baseball leagues apparently gained strength today. One prominent minor league executive who declined use of his name said that "if the major leagues want Trautman, he's in. The majors own or control 80 per cent of all minor league clubs. That means he can win by a 4-to-l vote," Trautman. executive vice president of the Tigers, has spent most of his career in the minors and thus would have the viewpoint of the. smaller baseball clubs. However, some small clubs oppose him on the ground his election might give the majors dominance over the minors. Bramham In Poor Health Judge Bramham, for nearly 50 years a figure in organized baseball, has indicated he would retire as president of the National Association for reasons of health. Subject of hotel lobby discussion was the proposed major-minor league working agreement, one important clause in which would put a damper on payment of large bonuses by rich clubs to sign young ball players. As proposed by the revision committee, the majors would be limited in effect to paying a $5,000 bonus. AAA clubs $3,500 down to $700 for a Class D club. The Fort Smith (Ark.) club has suggested upping this to $7,500 for the majors. $4,000 for AAA and down to $S0O for Class D. Sidelights on Sports By Al Abrams- Freddie Archer, the classy Newark welterweight, who meets Jackie Armitage at The Gardens tonight, rates Beau Jack the toughest nngman he has ever faced and our own Fntoe Zivic as the smartest. Oddly enough, Archer whipped both Jack and Zivic twice each, and also owns a triumph over Ike Williams, the lightweight champ. . "That Zivic was something," Freddie said in a gables t yesterday. "He knew every trick in the book pulling you in, twisting you, keeping you off balance and twirling you around. He was plenty smart. Beau Jack was the toughest I ever met. He was strong and kept coming in all the time." Archer had high praise for Chuck Taylor, the Coalport, Pa., boy who beat him twice. Freddie thought he won the first fight, but gives Chuck credit for copping the second. Archer has lost only four bouts in the last two years, and says he has an added incentive to make him good in the fight game now a wife and a five-month-old baby. .... ' V.

Willie Sams and Myer Abel-son are among several of the local sports fraternity who shove off for Miami this week. There were exactly 100,000 more spectators at the Army-Navy game at Philadelphia last Saturday than there were at the first Army-Navy battle played at West Point in 1890. Only 2,000, most of them members of the Military Academy, sat in on that one, and which was won by Navy, 24-0. Jock Sutherland's 1946 Pittsburgh Steelers wound up with a scoring mark of 136 points to 117 for the opposition, or an average of 12.4 per game against 10.7.

Our conversation turned to Leon Hart, the Turtle Creek grad, who played end for the South Benders. Druze broke into a smile, saying, "he is a swell boy, and will be one of the best ends they've had here. He , has natural ability, and he likes the game. They call him the Turtle Creek Flash, and he is very well liked by all the boys. N a t u r ally he made some mistakes, but he is quick to learn, and easy to' coach. He's a Leon Hart swell boy, and is taking a tough course here, being enrolled in engineering. That takes up much of his time for school work, so you can see he isn't just playing foot ball." First Tally Not Big Thrill The 18-year-old Hart had scored the first touchdown of his infant college career but that was not his greatest thrill. He said, "that was a thrill all right, but sitting on the bench, waiting my chance to enter my first game, was the big gest thrill I have had so far. ' The rangy end (6 foot 4, and 225 pounds) wouldn't trade his position for anything. He said "It is swell here. Everyone has treated me very well, and the coaches are fine men. Johnny Lujack has helped, and he sure is some ball player. "No I haven't been home much since school started," but with a big smile, added "I will be home for Christmas. Mother and Dad "couldn't make it for the home coming today (Saturday) they would have been thrilled, I think. Leon likes to play defense just a bit better than on the offensive. He said "I like to get in there. But today they didn't run much around my end. Most of their stuff went up the center, or to the other side. I get more fun out of breaking up plays coming my way than anything. The touchdown pass I caught, was my first score, but I took one for a long gain against Iowa. Everything gives me a thrill here." Irish Are For Him Solid Everyone connected with the Notre Dame squad are hieh in their praise of the local boy. une or me nrst questions asked Moose Krause bv head Mentor Frank Leahy was "How did Hart do?" Krause said, "You should have seen him. He took that touchdown pass like a veteran, never broke his stride. He rushed the passer, and just did everything right." The big boss said, "He is a fine prospect, and will be one of the greatest ends we have ever had at Notre Dame."
