Jenkins Returns to

Bluejackets Place Five
On All-Service Eleven

Starting Middie Lineup

Army Favored as Navy Aims for
Straight Win in Annual Football{


ANNAPOLIS, MD., NOV. 3'0-Navy nudged nearer an even choice
against Army today as Bob Jenkins of Alabama, left halfback and
leading ground-gainer for the Middies, recovered from an infected foot
and returned to the starting lineup for Saturday's crucial pigskin clash
before some. 70,000 in Baltimore's Municipal Stadium.
And where there was a slight cloud of gloom before, the lads on the
banks of the Blue Severn were calmly confident the future admirals would
make it six straight victories in their traditional service series with the
West Pointers.
Yet, while Navy gained a key

first string back, Annapolis coaches
disclosed the probable loss of a sec-
ond string fullback, Fred Earley,
with a broken finger received in
practice. Earley, who transferred
from Notre Dame this year, is one
of Navy's best blockers, as well as
a capable ball carrier.
Navy coaches said Jenkins, regard-
ed as one of the year's best line crush-
ers, probably wouldn't be "100 per
cent ready for Army-approximately
90 per cent-which is better than
nothing" and that he had been wear-
ing soft padding in his shoe to pro-
tect the injury.
Jenkins suffered the foot infection
early this week, after being out since
Nov. 11 with a "charley-horse" re-
ceived in the Cornell game. He had
returned temporarily last Saturday,
but the new ailment kept him from
practicin g until today when he was
put through a signal session and some
pass defense work.
With Jenkins in shape, Comdr.
Oscar E. Hagberg, Navy coach, can
master-mind with two triple threat
performers, the other being little
150-pound Hal Hamberg, of Lonoke,
Ark., Navy's finest passer. Hamberg
also had been out of action for sev-
eral weeks with a pulled leg muscle,
but is in good shape for this one.
Hamberg's passes played leading


roles in Navy's victories over the Ca-
dets the last two years.
Around the academy, Navy men
thought the game would be a free-
scoring affair, but not the point-a-
minute jamboree the all-victorious
West Point cadets have run up
against eight opponents this fall.
Navy is depending on its great
line, probably the best in college
football, to see that the Army's
T-formation never gets going, by
smearing such speedsters as Glenn
Davis, Doug Kenna, Doc Blanch-
ard, and others before they can
blast clear on those long runs that
ruined Notre Dame, Pennsylvania,
and Duke.
Hagberg said his entire squad of 52
players would go to Baltimore, leav-
ing Annapolis by bus about 11 a. m.
The Midshipman Regiment-ap-
proximately 3,000 strong which will
attend the game along with the West
Point cadet corps-will whoop it up
at a pep rally tmorrow night in front
of the Tecumseh statue.
League Starts
Trophy Is Awarded to
Winner of Competition
All students wishing to form
basketball teams to compete in any-
one of the five intramural leagues
which are now being formed are re-
quested to turn in a list of ten eli-
gible players at Waterman Gym with-
out delay, as the opening games are
slated for Saturday, December 9.
Although intramural basketball is
necessarily at a minimum this year
compared to former years when as
many as 250 groups of cagers would
provide a heavy schedule of twenty
games a night, it is hoped that there
will be a league for professional fra-
ternities, one for general fraternities,
one for residence halls, a military
league and an independent league.
Teams will have the opportunity to
practice tomorrow afternoon and
next Thursday night and are asked
to call the gym before hand to re-
serve a court.
With a trophy as a reward for the
ultimate champion, each team will'
play each other team within its
league and the top cage combinations
of the five leagues will in turn com-
pete against one another.
If an individual is excused from
PEM because of his health he will
be barred from playing basketball.
Price Elected Captain
Robert E. Price, Belding Junior at'
Michigan State College, today was'
elected honorary captain of the col-
lege's 1944 cross-country team .
The team won two and lost two
dual meets and placed fifth in the'
N. C. A. A. cross country meet held
at the college last Saturday.

Sammy Snead Enters Open
in Returnto Tourney Play
SAN FRANCISCO, NOV.,30-Slammin' Sam Snead, who hit golf's
comeback trail in winning fashion last week, will be the sentimental
favorite when the field tees off tomorrow in the 72-hole San Francisco
open but hard shelled observers bracketed the defending champ, Byron
Nelson, as the man to beat for top prize.
Nelson, biggest money winner of 1944, tow-roped the field to win
the San Francisco open last year, followed by his running mate, Harold
Mc Spaden of Philadelphia. The Harding Park public links, scene of the
tournament this winter as last, seemingly is made to order for the Toledo,
O., star and Mc Spaden.
It is fairly flat, long and tree-bordered but these two seldom have
failed to pick it's par 72 to pieces. They have the"jump on Snead, in one
respect-familiarity. with the course.
Snead, nevertheless, already has been established as "the people's
choice." The golfing public was intrigued by his spectacular return to
major tournament competition aftert more than two years in the navy.
He beat practically the same field in the Portland open, with one-over
par 289 for 72 holes.
More than 150 pros and amateurs will have the same objective as
Snead, Nelsoi and Mc Spaden, in the $14,500 ar bonds event. First prize
is $2,666 in bonds. The tournament, 18 holes daily, will end Monday.

Coach Wally Weber's wrestling
squad came to the end of their first
month of preliminary practice this
week with still a glaring lack of ex-
perienced men of the heavier weight
class itu evidence.
The matmen are sorely in need of
wrestlers who weigh above 160
pounds, but expect to have this need
filled in the near future. Coach
Weber hopes to have a few men who
were on the football team report to
his squad thus bolstering up the
heavier divisions immensely. Right
now the only heavyweight with any
wrestling experience is Walter Blu-
menstein, a 190-pound freshman who
wrestled for John Marshall High
School in Cleveland, Ohio.
The matmen are also without a
captaini, since Hugh Wilson, who was
elected last year, has departed with
a cont igent of Navy men. Jim
Galles, one of last year's mainstays,
has been helping Coach Weber in
the instruction of fundamental holds
and escapes, but the boys have not as
yet elected a temporary captain.
With the 1945 wrestling season
looming in the not too distant future,
the matmen have the large task of
repeating last year's conquest of the
Big Ten championship before them.
Last year's team has practically dis-
appeared, but with Galles and Bob
Gittins returning as lettermen, and
