rny, Navy Stage Football arfare In Philadelphia



100,000 Fans
To View Day's
Biggest Game
Mazur To Highlight Cadet
Attack; Sailors To Rely
On Reserve Manpower
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 28. --P)-M-
The Army and Navy football teams,
better }matched at least on paper than
at any time in the last 15 years, held
their final light workouts today and
then retired to the quiet of suburban
country clubs as this city got tangled
up in its customary pre-service game
On the turf of Municipal Stadium,
where tomorrow (1:30 p.m. EST) they
will play before close to 100,000 spec-
tators, the Cadets whipped through
their drill under the watchful eye of
Earl (Red) Blaik, the civilian coach
who has rescued Army football from
its worst slump. Emery E. (Swede)
Larson, the Marine major who re- 1
turns to active duty Jan. 1, supervised
Navy's practice at Temple Stadium.
Navy Reserve Power
Through a season marred only by
a tie with Harvard and a 6ne-touch-
down defeat by Notre Dame, much
has been made of Navy's manpower.
Larson right along has used the two-
team system, with ample reserves
even back of those two teams. Army,
which won only one game in 1940, has
taken five out of eight this fall al-
though its key men had to go 60 mii-
utes or close to it in every game.
Said Larson:
"Manpower? Sure, we've got man-
power. But men don't do you any
good sitting on the bench, and you
still can play only eleven men at a
time. We know Army's first eleven
make up a fine football team, and
if Blaik has eleven good men who can
go all the way, that's'all he needs,
isn't it?"
Mazur Is Key Man
Said Blaik:
"Wish it would turn colder. This
heat won't do our boys any good. Does
M azur look a bit 'fine'? Naturally he
does. So would you if you'd had to
carry most of our offensive work and
a big defensive job through 421 min-
utes out of a possible 480."
Mazur-Henry (Hank) Mazur of
Lowell, Mass.-is a worry to both
sides, in fact. Army worries wheth-
er this chunky tailback, who runs,
kicks and passes, will be able to play
the entire game, and Navy worries
whether it can stop hi runs, return'
his kicks and intercept his passes.

A CROSS THE DESK of a sports
editor pours a veritable deluge
of publicity material. From all over
this nation comes a flood of unsought
information, nine-tenths of which is
useless. It emanates from the pro-
lific, if somewhat hackneyed pens
of the tub-thumpers, the tom-tom
beaters. Invariably they would: rather1
be dignified by the title of publicity
Most of their stuff is immedi-
ately consigned to the wastebas-
ket. Little, of it can be used directly
in the morrow's paper. Thus it
creates a real glow of pleasure and
considerable surprise when some-
thing comes in that's worth using.
Wisconsin did the trick this time
with a basketball bob klet of pres's
information that's really interest-
ing. Here's some of the dope:
T HE CARDINALS, National Colleg-
iate champions last year, are fac-
ing this season's 20-game test with
"controlled optimnism." The Wiscon-
sin cagers, who trimmed Michigan,
40-30, on their merry chase to a na-
tionaJ crown last February, will be
paced in the forthcoming campaign
by 11 veteran lettermen. (Michigan
has just four.) Only graduation losses
from last year's outfit, which also
swept the Western Conference crown
in its headlong rush to cage fame,
a e center Gene Englund, Don Tim-
erman and guard Ted Strain.
This Englund was a real athlete
and his loss really hurts. Strain,
too, was a good steady ball handler
and a fine team player. Timmer-
man, a 6-foot, 11-inch toothpick,
saw service only as Englunds' sub-
stitute. All the rest of the Badgers
are back, in addition to an out-
standing group of sophomore tal-

pack of veterans is forward John-,
ny Kotz, one-hand push shot artist,
who turned in brilliant performances
as a sophomore last year. Other out-
standing Wisconsin cagemen are
Chuck Epperson, Ed Scheiwe, Fred
Fyehm, John Lynch, Bob Alwin and
a host of others. ,And Bennie Ooster-

The Wisconsin booklet also af-
fords an interesting little series of
bits about Bud Foster, Cardinal
mentor who has only a two-year
edge on Ohio State's 33-year-old
Paul Brown, Bud attracted lots of
attention at birth and has been do-
ing it ever since.

HCE WAS BORN in Newton, Kan.,j
on Decoration Day,' 1906, and
holds the distinction of being the
heaviest baby ever born in the state,
hitting the scales at 133/4 pounds.'
Some 15 years later he made his
debut into organized basketball in
typical storybook fashion.

The high school coach saw the
"young giant" walking around
loose, told him to put on a uniform'
and take a try at the game. The
first time Bud got the ball in an
actual game he wound up and
pitched it from the center of the
floor in the general direction of
the hoop. It went in, of course,
won the game, and Bud has been
playing or coaching ever since.
AFTER cage fame at Wisconsin,
Bud tried his hand at the semi-,
pyofessional game, but he received
rather meager financial remunera-
tion so turned to selling seeds for'
an Oshkosh, Wis., firm. He still

Spartans Favored
Over WestVirginia
MORGANTOWN, W. Va., Nov. 28-
(M)-The West Virginia Mountaineers
will shoot for a 50-50 break on their
season against Michigan State tomor-
row, and also attempt to maintain a
record of liot having lost a game in
Mountaineer Stadium during the two-
year regime of Coach Bill Kern.
Although West Virginia has im-
proved in recent games, the Spartans
are favorites to take their third vic-
tory of the rivalry which started in
1938. In the two previous games, in
1938 and 1940, West Virginia failed
to score a point. Michigan State won
at Lansing, 17-0, last year.
