I'hita- By tli AMuclulrd Prrm PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 27 The Chicago Bears got back 'at the Washington Redskins today by sparking the National League All-Stars to a 17-14 victory over the league champions in the annual Pro Bowl football clafiaic before 18,671 at Shibe Park. The deciding three points came on the second play of the last quarter when Lee Artne, big Bear tackle, booted a magnificent field goal from the 43-ynrd line that shattered a 14-14 dead-lock. These three points climaxed a third period of furious action that saw three touchdowns scored within six minutes, one on a sensational 87-yard run by Bill Dudley, Pittsburgh Stecler halfback, after he had intercepted a pass. B.U GII H MISSING The Redskins, playing without their star passer, Slingin' Sammy Baugh, were outplayed most of the way. hut stayed in the running until the final 30 seconds of play when Bob Masterson missed . a field goal try by inches from the All-Star 27. Baugh failed to make airplane connections last night at Dallas, Tex., and was unable to get here in time. Most of (he action took place with nine Hear players, Artoe, Danny Fortmann, Ed Kolman, John Siegal, George Wilson, Gary Famigllettl, Sid Luckman, Frank Manznlcki and C'harlrty Drulls, In the All-Star lineup. John Petty, the tenth Bear player on the All-star squad, also performed brilliantly. Feeling ran high with the Bears en the field, Savage tackling and arguments with officials charac terized the Bears' play as they gained a high measure of revenge for the 14-6 licking the Redskins administered to them two weeks ago In Washington. STARS' FIRST VICTORY It was the first time since the pro bowl was inaugurated in 1938 that tho All-Stars have won. The game, played for the benefit of merchant seamen, grossed $75.-000, officials announced. In addition, a total of $90,170 in War Bonds was sold between the halves. This included a bid of $31,000 by Harry Orlowitz, of Philadelphia, for the winning football. The Redskins had things pretty much their own way In the opening quarter when the All-Stars seemed unable to find a combination of players that could click. Midway in the first period, Harry Hopp, Detroit Lions' back, kicked from the Stars' 11-yard line, Kl Aldrlch, Redskins' center, grabbed the ball off the ground, on the 40 and raced unmolested for the score. Bob Masterson converted. STARS START TO MOVE Sparked by Luckman's passing, the Stars made It first down on the Redskin 18 late in the second quarter. Famigllettl, in two plays, pounded to a first down on the three. He hit off tackle on the next play and seemed headed for a touchdown, but slipped on the one. Here, with leas than a minute to play in the half, the Redskins put up a stonewall defense to halt the Bears' surge. Dudley contributed the Stars' first touchdown In the third quarter just when it looked a . If Washington was going to walk away with the game. The Redskins were on the Stars' three when Dudley, former Virginia star, snatched Roy Zimmerman's short over - the - line pass and raced 97 yards for a touchdown. The Stars wasted no time and as eight Chicago Bears came into the game, Luckman clicked repeatedly with passes to Siegal and Wilson to put the ball on the Redakins' three. From there Petty plunged over for the score to put the Stars ahead, 14 to 7. REDSKLVS RETALIATE , Washington bounced right back to tie the score. Zimmerman tossed a 39-yard pass to Master- son on the 36. then found Bob Seymour clear in the scoring zone. Masterson converted to make it 14 to 14. Merlyn Cnndit took Mast"rson's kicknff to open the fourth quarw nd tore hack 59 yards to the Kertukm 37 where Bill Young tackled him from behind. This ,-t the stage for Artoe's game-wsn-rung field goal. Baugh Faces Sfwrlal to the f Vrtt PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 2T An investigation to show why Sammy Baugh, ace passer of the Washington Redskins, failed to appear for the Pro Bowl football charity game here today has been ordered by Elmer Layden, commissioner of the National League. Layden said he had tried fruitlessly to contact Baugh at his Rotan, Tex, home. In addition to facing disciplinary action of the league, Baugh incurred the wrath of his teammates, some of whom said Sammy Here's Bill Dudley (35), normally of the Pittsburgh Steelcrs, but Sunday playing halfback foi the National League All-Stars, is shown here shortly after snatching a Washington Redskin pass on his own three-yard line to begin his run of 97 yards for a touchdown, HITTING THE HEADPI1V Plans Intercity Bowling League A her BY W. W. EDGAR. Herb Mertens, the portly banker who helped organize the All-Star Classic and saw it grow into one of tho strongest bowling leagues in the country, has an idea for an even stronger and larger circuit. "Nothing ever will replace the Ail-Star Classic, Insofar as most of the star bowlers in the city 'Hot' Bowler Really Warms Up to Job PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 27 (AP) They figured Eddie Winchester was pretty hot when he bowled a score of 1176 for five games in a match tournament here. That was a 235 average. But Eddie was just getting started. In the next session he hit 837 for three. He put on the clincher in his final game a perfect 300. ara concerned," Herb explained, "but the day will come when we'll have a bowling league modelled after the baseball and football leagues. It's bound to come and m soon as the war Is over I'm going to see If it can't be started," Herb, always the enthusiast, visions a league comprising such bowling centers as Chicago, Mil waukee, Buffalo, Cleveland, To ledo, Columbus, Cincinnati and De troit and a schedule calling for home-and-home matches each week. "W'hat I have m mind," said Mertens, "is a league with two representative teams in each city Then, while one Detroit team was on the road and the other would be home. And, of course, I'd like to see only the strongest bowlers on each team. Asked how Ii would be possible to get the best bowlers and yet abide by the ABC alley-man rule, he quickly explained, "The first thing to be done along those lines is to explain from the start that these teams would not be tournament teams. Those Vthlch would have more than one alley-man, the limit allowed by tho ABC, would bowl together only In the league. In this way, I think the ABC would sanction a league of the kind I have in mind." Possibly the only Detroit team that could enter the league intact would be the Stroh combination. Any other team would have to be strengthened. "Bowling is becoming a spectators'- sport," Herb went on, "and I believe a league of star teams meeting each other every week would be one of the most popular in any sport. "The billiard players used to Triple Mat Windup at Arena Gardens The 1942 wrestling season at the Arena Gardens will be brought to a close Monday night with a triple ,windup program.

They said they felt that he had not only thrown down the league, the United Seamen's Service, for which the game was played, and the fans who paid in prospect of seeing him along with other grid All-Stars' Bill Dudley Off the War have a league. So did the pocket billiard or pool players. And while we can't predict just what is going to happen after the war, I'm sure that a bowling league such as I have mentioned will be formed." The greatest organized effort to raise funds ever undertaken on the city's bowling alleys will get under way Monday, when the bowling proprietors and the bowlers launch War Bond Week as part of the Bowlers' Victory Legion Campaign. Thus far two special weeks have been held. The first was USO Week and the other Red Cross Week. Each league secretary ha been contacted and special tournaments of all kinds are to be held on each of the city's alleys throughout the week. ,''' Detroit will he the scene of a national bowling tournament next spring, Plans have been completed for the National Negro Bowling Association to hold its annual battle at the Paradise Bowl in April.

Saturday night the Beavers played the City College of New York in Madison Square Garden and romped off with an easy 43-31 victory before greats, but that he had failed them as a team. Redskin and league officials made efforts up to the last moment trying to get Baugh to the game. Sammy, at home on his ranch at Rotan, Tex., claimed he had been ill with influenza for five days and "even if I got there, wouldn't be able to play."

When you drop into his Olympia office, you need not worry about possible damage to the ear drums. Pleasingly enough, Mr. Ifuber also has the happy faculty of knowing whereof he speaks. Especially on hockey. Some people, after hearing Huber rattle off facts and figures anent his favorite sport, think he is '- walking statistical library. On this particular occasion Huber was quietly beating the tom toms for one of the Wings. This paid for said task, However, Mr. Huber was striking from a different angle, the gentle angle of this ungentle sport. Having disposed of the accepted verbal amenities, Huber said, "You know, it wouldn't surprise me if our Mud Bruneteau comes pretty close to winning the Lady Byng Trophy this winter." If you are unfamiliar with the Lady Byng Trophy, let us inform you that it is the most unusual It is presented annually to the combined player, gentleman and Records Prove the "MUD BRUNETEAU," continued Mr, Huber, "has all the qualifications necessary for the Did you ever stop to think that players in the NHL? He has been in the big time since 1935 and has never been given a major penalty." ' Mr. Huber stopped for a moment as though expecting us to present an argument. When we records this season. Mud ha3 been credited with 21 points. He has made 11 goals. He has played in every game and ha3 been banged around by some pretty rough defensemen. Yet, Mud has never lost his temper. He is the only regular Red Wing who has not been given even a minor penalty all winter." You grab for the records of the NHL and, sure enough, everything Huber says is true. Bruneteau hasn't been penalized in 19 games. At this moment the telephone rings and Huber, ever the gentleman, says, "Pardcfn me a moment." It's someone asking for a couple of Annie Oakleys to the next Wings' game. Mr. Huber accommodates the caller. Then gentlemanly points of Modere Fcrdnand Bruneteau. "They started presenting the Lady Byng Trophy back in 1934," he says, "and through won it. That was Marty Barry Apps, of Toronto, received the trophy , and before him it was Bobby Bauer, of Boston. Of course, the big winner was Frank Boucher when he played with the Rangers. He won the trophy seven times. It's a Habit ivith Him YOU TAKE another look correct on all counts. But Mr. Huber has not finished. "This isn't the first year Bruneteau has been a real gentleman on skates," he continues, "Mud has been in the league he has averaged fewer than four minor penalties a season." (A check of the records revealed Bruneteau has spent 66 minutes in the penalty box in approximately 300 games.) . Having presented his argument, well garnished with statistical evidence, Mr. Huber reverted to the classical. "Remember what Lincoln said in one of his inaugural addresses," Mr. Huber says, "You know, that phrase 'With malice toward none and charity for all.' Well, that's Bruneteau all over." Huber bids you adieu as you go down the steps. You meet five or six Red Wings at the corner soda fountain. You ask them what they think of Bruneteau's chances for the Lady Byng Trophy. "He should get it," says one of the rougher Wings. "That guy's really a gentleman and a hockey player." boy, Center Robert Harvey, of Lansing. Harvey Is 6 feet S Inches and Is considered one of the best rebound men on the Taclflc Coast. Other Beaver regulars are Mickey Brophy and (jlen Warren, forwards, and Lewis Beck and Donald Durdan, veteran guards. Warren, incidentally, also is 8 feet 5. The first Oregon State team averages 6 feet 2 j Inches. Wayne University has won two of four games this season but will be playing under a height disadvantage against the Beavers. Although the Tartars average around 6 feet, they possess no elongated stars like Harvey and Warren. LOADED WITH STARS The U. of D. team, which has lost only to Illinois in four starts, also will be in for an Interesting evening. The Selfridge Flyers arc loaded with such former college stars as Bobhy Roth, considered one of the best ball handlers to play at Wayne U and Sammy Lieberman, the Lawrence Tech center who topped the collegiate scorers in Metropolitan Detroit last season. Detroit, however, does have one unusually tall player In Center Lee Knorek, six-foot, six-Inch pivot man. Knorek is the top U. of D. scorer and his ability to knock In rebounds usually plays a big part In the Titans' offensive plans. Both U. of D. and Wayne also will play on another double-header program at Olympia Saturday. U. of D. will meet Harvard and Wayne will play another Western team, Washington State.
