Together with Braidford, Reichert

* * Bears Versus Panzers
* The Lawyers Battle
Daily Sports Editor
A COUPLE of lawyers dragged themselves out of hibernation with Black-
stone's Commentaries and Cooley on Torts yesterday just long enough
to reveal to a breathless campus that the annual Gravy Bowl battle will be
staged this afternoon.
And I can assure you that McCulloch vs. Maryland had no academic
edge at all on today's meeting which will pit, I understand, Bill Luck's
Panzers against Buck's Bears.
WHEN the rather lofty and involved language that these barristers
handed out yesterday is pared down, these salient facts stand out:
a touch football game will be held at 3 p.m. today in Grismore Stadium,
which is situated at the east end of the Legal Research Building. The
teams, Panzers and Bears, ar the finalists in the gruelling Law School
touch football elimination.
Steeped in hallowed tradition, this annual Gravy Bowl event has pro-
duced nerve-tingling, heart-rending battles in the past as the selected rivals
sought possession of a coveted Morocco-bound volunr of 84 Texas Criminal
Reports, indeed a worthy prize.
THE PROMOTERS of this athletic extravaganza realize that they are
running competition with the Rose, Sugar, Orange, Cotton and oth-
er more famous Bowl games. But, as they claim, these other highly-
publicized ventures pale into insignificance by comparison with the
Gravy Bowl. Today's classic will feature two of the most versatile aggre-
gations that have ever sought the highest kudos of athletic fame.
It will no longer be cerebrum against cerebrum and 'cerebellum against
ditto on the field of battle. Cast aside will be the gray matter and the
knowledge gained from Wigmore on Evidence, and Weathersby-Reed on
Libel. All that matters in those two hours of deadly combat this afternoon
is the gridiron skill that these'barristers may manage to muster.
H AVING SUFFERED only one defeat during the regular touchball
campaign, according to a legal decision handed down by Justice
Milton Solomon, the Panzers will place on the gridiron a unit that strikes
"with the deadliness and accracy of a panther-sometimes"
The Panzer lineup reads-as a veritable Milky Way of football talent.
Such stars as Neil McKay, ace ball-hawk, and Bud Spencer, masterful field
general, lead the team. Others on the Panzer active list are Dwight Ham-
borsky, Russ Ryan, Art Peter, Hank Moran, Jim Clancey and Cruzan
THE BEARS, on the .other hand, have a little,'more finesse in their
modum operandi. Also defeated once, they will rely on a team out-
standing for its size, power, deception and ability to intimidate the offi-
cials. Slated to see action are their stellar pass receivers, Don Treadwell
and Dick Stephens, and a host of veterans, including Bill Taft, Dick
Saunders, John Hall, Ed Adams, Charlie Schwartz, Jim Thorburn, and
Marbury vs. Madison.
Dopesters figure that a dry and fast field will give -the Panzers the
edge, whereas a sloppy gridiron will kill all chances for a Bear victory. This
'would indicate that the Panzers rate a slight margin. But the Bears point
out that in Hadley vs. Baxendale, the latter wasn't conceded a chance, either,
and yet managed to spring an upset.
IF THE BEARS WIN, the Panzers swear they'll' appeal the decision in
a higher court.
Bailiff, summop the witnesses. t

and furious game which featured the;

"whites"-Mel Comin, Jim Mandler,

Shemky was high scorer for the
losers, tallying 10 of the "reds' " 27

all during the scrimmage session and!
served warning that he is after one
of the first string berths on the five
that starts against Michigan State

Athoulh the pace was fast and
loose, the players enjoyed themselves,
especially the sophomores-Bikoff,
Gibert, MacConnachie, Spreen and
Shemky-who are eager to show their
wares to Oosterbaan and Assistant
Coach Ernie McCoy.

In the inter-fraternity volley-
ball competition nearly all the di-

are at present tied in their league.
Turning to tennis, we find a var-

against Ray Schneider in the All-

o'clock Sunday morning. In reaching
the finals Madiel vanquished Dick
Bruns 7-5, 6-3 while Schneider beat

' JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 5.-UP)
-The hottest trade left,. sizzling as
the baseball meetings broke up today
was a deal between the New York
Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers which
reportedly would send Lefty Cliff
Melton to the National League cham-
pions for third baseman Cookie Lava-
Negotiations were temporarily bro-
ken off while the baseball crowd
shifted to Chicago, where the Major
Leagues will be in session next week,
but there seemed to be good pros-
pects that some such trade might be
closed there.
It might have been completed here
except that Brooklyn has been search-
ing for a third baseman and prob-
ably is loathe to part with Lava-
getto until President Larry MacPhail
can get his hands on anrother.
Brooklyn's greatest need is a south-


paw pitcher and th% veteran Melton
who won 8 and lost 11 last season, is
about the best portsider available to
the Dodgers. He will be 29 years old
next month, buA has been in the
Major Leagues only five years and
many managers believe he has con-
siderable pitching ability left. He
won 20 games for the Giants when
he broke in in 1937, but hasn't been
anywhere near that since. Boss Bill
Terry of the Giants has somewhIat
soured on him, for that reason, and
no doubt would be willing to part with
