DESPITE the fact that a greatlmany of the nation's-gridironwteam3~1n-
ished their season last week,:King Football still rules, at least for this
coming week-end. The Western Conference race- was- concluded andNotre
Dame downed the Iowa Seahawks in one of the greatest, if not the greatest,
contests of the year. but Thanksgiving is always the time for great grid
rivals to meet, and so it is this week. With tilts scheduled for both tomorrow
and Saturday that find traditional rivals playing in games where past rec-
ords mean naught, the gridiron sport can hardly be called down and out.
Tomorrow finds Cornell and Pennsylvania playing their famous
Turkey Day classic (although in- the last several years the- schedule
makers of both schools have found it a little difficult to determine, on
just which Thanksgiving to hold it)..Alsq battlihg itout tomorrow will
be Lafayette and Lehigh. Although the contest is of little iniportance
regarding national or sectional stan4ing, it is one of - the traditiona.
games of the east, for these two teams have played one another more.
than any other pair in the country..-
Army faces Navy Saturday in one of the most colorful tilts of the sea-
son. Last year the two teams played before only 11,700 fans at Annapolis,
while this year even less than that are expected to view the traditional spec-
tacle at West Point. Before the war and transportation difficulties, however,
these two service teams regularly:fought onesanother before -100,000fans.I
This year the fans will be fewer, but the colorful display and overwhelming
spirit will be present as ever to watch the sixth and seventh teams of the
nation fight it out.
LAST WEEK your writer broke into the win column by tieing Ed Zalenski
and' Fred Delano for first place ,in The Daily Experts Poll, so this week;
we feel fairly confidept of our predictions. Of course this is the week that
past records are ignored, so we are- polishing pp. our trusty crystal ball even
more than usual to make our selections.
Penn-Cornell-Penn- has lost the last two at the hands of Navy and
North Carolina, but we still like the Quakers -over Carl-Snavely's Big
Red outfit. Cornell has had a.; very mediocre season this -year,- being
trounced by Navy, Colgate, and-Dartmouth, and a win over Penn would.
make up for everything. Bob O'Dell, however, doesn't see things this
way, and neither do we. .
Brown-Colgate-This game could go either way. Andy Kerr is a fine
coach. and on this basis alone we'll take the Red Raiders by one touchdown.
Notre Dame-Great Lakes-The fightjng Irish should roll right on to
their first perfect season since the Knute Rookne team of-,1930. ldfiller
Rykovich, Mello and company just can't be stopped and there -is no
reason why the Bluejackets should be the exception thatproves therule. -,
Texas A & M-Texas-The eyes of Texas are upon this gaie. The
Aggies are undefeated and untied, while Dana Bible's Longhorns have been
beaten only by Southwestern in an upset early in the year. We like- Texas
on the strength of their recent record.
Lafayette-Lehigh-Lafayette swamped Lehigh, 39 to 7, earlier in the
season, and since the Engineers have. yet to win a game, we'll string along
with Lafayette again.
initial Hockey Practice
Draws Forty Prospects
By JO ANN PETERSON
Despite, a holdup in official circles,
which-has made the- team one of ex-
treme doubt, Coach Eddie Lowrey
yesterday received word that the
Maize and Blue would again have a
chance to pu-t a squad on the ice.
'Lowrey has been waiting for the#
decision. for some time, and wasted
no time in calling a practice session
yesterday afternoon. About 40 men
turned out for practice, all told, al-
though they were coming and going
all during thepractice period so that
it was hard to ascertain the exact
number of candidates.
Transportation Is Problem
T e ,decision as to whether or not
there would be a hockey team, rested
on the fact that it is hard to get ,
transportation now. and also that it
is hard to make out a schedule since
so few nearby schools play hockey.
However, Athletic Director. H. 0.
Crisler did give his permission for a
hockey team, although no schedule
has as yet been drawn up.
Mr. Lowrey has not had an oppor-
tunity to schedule any games at all
since the decision has been in the
air for some time, but he has con-
tacted Minnesota officials tentatively
and it is probable that two games
will be scheduled with the Gophers
on their ice late in January, and two
return engagements on home ice
sometime in February. Other games
on the schedule will probably include
at least two Canadian teams.
WHAT, NO BOUQUETS !

-There is nothing of the defeatist

ervation on the Hudson as the day
for the annual reckoning with the
Navy football team nears. Come next.

Cadets expect to give the invading

Army victory at least an even gam-
Even Lt.-Col. Earl (Red) Blaik, not
given to .over - enthusiastic state-
ments, ventures bravely:
"Nobody else seems to think so, but
I think that on- a dry field we have
an even chance."
That, from a football coach, is
equivalent to a "we'll moider 'em"
statement from a fighter or baseball
manager, and the handsome Colonel
makes it in the same breath in which
he ;outlined the superiority of the
Navy eleven in practically all depart-
"They have more depth, more ex-
perience and more speed," he says.

He knows, for instance, that Hal
Hamberg was an outstanding star at
Arkansas, .. and that. Bob Jenkins

Bowl, and he, knows just how fast
each man can cover 100. yards.
But-still -he concedes nothing, ex-

would enable the Middies to use.their
superior power to- best advantage.
What he fears..even more than Navy
are the mistakes his own team might

own worst enemy we'll be quite a

nothing of the boast in the remark.

body has stopped us yet."

Final at Boston: Boston Bruins

Things were a little quieter on the
basketball front today as most of the,
time was spent in brushing up on
The only real action came when
the squad was divided into two teams
and a fifteen minute scrimmage fol-
lowed. The whites in winning 18-11
showed a lot of class and they
seemed , to click together pretty
smoothly. This winning combination
had Dave Strack and Wayne Thomp-
son at forwards, Dick Shrider and
John Leddy at guards and at center
Bill Seymour. The latter was high
point man with six points while
Wayne Thompson followed with five
points. The other three performers
each scored once.
In addition to the nice display of
teamwork which was shown by this
unit, it was especially pleasing to
note the fine play of Bill Seymour
who is developing into a real offen-
sive threat. IHis specialty seems to
be in tipping rebounds back where
they were intended to go, and if he
continues his outstanding work, Bill
should develop into a stellar per-
former for the Maize and Blue.
On the yellow quintet were Tom
King and Bill Oren at forwards, Ket-

showed plenty of stuff and right now
we'd like to pay triute to Charlie
Ketterer, who is really giving forth

Thompson Also Outstanding
Another bright light in this scrim-
mage was the return to form of
Wayne Thompson. "Tommy" has
had a little trouble in getting started

composure and that one-handed shot

noon for the bucketeers. They tackle

In an 'effort to sustain interest and
keep track prospects working hard,
Coach Ken Doherty anounced Mon-
day that there will be an inter-squad
track meet December 11 at the Field
House. The meet will be hotly con-
tested since-the squad has been divid-
ed on theebasis of the status of the
From all appearances it would seem
that the civilians would hold a dis-
tinct advantage over the remaining
squad members since most of the vet-
erans and Conference champions are
within their ranks. But this observa-
tion is leaky due to the fact that the
Navy holds the greater number of
men able to grab off occasional first
places and the majority of the second
and third spots.
