For the Fletchers New Kensington High School football players have an added incentive to beat Har-Brack in the WPIAL Class AA championship game at Forbes Field Thanksgiving Day. It's the fifteenth wedding anniversary of their coach. Don Fletcher, and his wife, Billie, affectionately called "The Boss" by the team. The players walked into the Fletcher home Wednesday night with a premature gift. A play ers spokesman said: "As a gift for your wedding anniversary on Thanksgiving, we promise you that we'll beat Har-Brack and keep the Class AA championship."

Hornets Edge Capitals, 2-1 (Continued from Preceding Page) Pittsburgh plays at Hershey on Thanksgiving night while the Caps go to Cleveland, where they play the Barons Saturday. Elwyn (Moe) Morris, Hornet backliner, returned to action after a long layoff for an injured foot. Neither team was able to score in a rough, fast opening period during which both teams shone on defense. Both eoalies were sham iin spirited skirmishing in front of their nets. i Ralph (Red) Almas, the Cap netminder, received a gash in the left eyebrow late in the session and he had to retire for repairs ,at 16i21. He returned to action jwith two stitches in his eyebrow and a tape over it. j The intermission was moved up and the remaining three minutes and 39 seconds of the initial equalizing. Todd Sloan scored from Pete Backor in just 21 seconds. At 17:29 Phil Samis cross checked Sclisizzi into the boards at the southeast corner so sav agely that the latter had to be taken out of the game. Samis spent the next two minutes in the cooler but the Wasps kept even with a stout defense. Other casualties in the second period were Pete Langelle, who needed two stitches for a cut over the eyebrow and Announcer Ray Downey who had his hat knocked off by an out-of-bounds shot propelled by Stan Kemp near the end of the session. Downey's cut needed only one stitch in the top of his scalp. The third period was played at full tilt almost from buzzer to buzzer despite the fact that fivej penalties kept the teams short- 3t. Louis U. Favored To Beat Duquesne ST. LOUIS, Mo, Nov. 26 UP) Neither team has an impressive record but St. Louis University is rated two-touchdown favorite over Duquesne's young and battered squad for Thanksgiving Day encounter expected to draw about 10,000 to Walsh Stadium tomorrow. The weather outlook is for cloudy skies and perhaps light snow. Billikens lost their four most recent games but the squad was pronounced in good condition whereas John Schriver, advance agent for the Dukes, lists the regular quarterback and three regu-ular halfbacks out with injuries. Six others, including four front line players, have injuries that may limit their activities in behalf of the Duquesne cause. However, the single wing formation with flanker sometimes used by the Pittsburgh team could enable it to hand the Billikens their seventh defeat in 10 games for one of St. Louis' worst seasons. The Bills could not fathom the single wing used by Wichita University, the only other team to use it against them exten sively this season. Although Duquesne has shown a good pass defense, the Bills wilL as usual, rely greatly on the passing of Quarterback Jack Rooney. This will be the last game of the season for eight St. Louis players, and it also closes out the season for the visitors, so neither coach will have to economize on their player strength a factor both have contended with.

Kielbasa was released by the Steelers a few weeks ago and he immediately hooked up with the McKeesport-Duquesne Ironmen of the Pennsylvania Professional League. The Ironment won the championship in that circuit. The Steelers will likely face the powerful Philadelphia Eagles in the decisive battle at Philadelphia Sunday without the services of Johnny Clement, its leading ground gainer and passing star; Walt Slater, another backfield dependable and leading punt return er, plus Quarterback Bill Garnaas. Clement suffered a dislocated left elbow in the Bear game and has it in a cast, while Slater and Garnaas came out of the bruising battle with severe Charley horses. Steeler coaches are not counting on Clement to take part in the Eagle game and consider Slater and Garnaas as doubtful starters. Coach Jock Sutherland put the squad through another long workout Wednesday morning and had Gonzales Morales running in Clement's tailback position. Morales took over against the Bears when Johnny Zero and Slater were forced out of action. 6 Tlereland Buffalo 3 STANDING OF THE CLUBS EASTERN DIVISION W. L.

Lebanon High School Stadium Turkey Day afternoon. The Wildcats, defending cham pions of the Porridge Bowl, are rated slierht underdogs in the tough test with the Brushton boys, who are given the nod on experience. They'll answer a 2:30 kick-: off call, while the Kittens and Ruthfred, teams of 8 to 10-year-; old boys, are slated to do their stuff at 1:15. A crowd of 8,000 is predicted for the annual grid games.
