definite period due to a blood in-
fection, infectious mononucleosis.
Sawchuck, three-time winner of
the Vezina Trophy will be out of

The 26 year old goalie is con-

he has allowed only 56 goals.

Collegiate wrestling is a vastly
different sport than the profes-

so much popularity through tele-
In the collegiate style, the
matches are conducted on a cir-
cular mat which is 25 feet in di-
ameter. The match which is nine
minutes long, is divided into three
separate periods.
The initial period is known as
the "standing" period because both
contestants wrestle from a stand-
ing position and attempt to take
the other man to the mat and gain
control of him.
In the second period both men
are down on the mat, but one,
man is given the advantage. The
man with the disadvantage is on
all fours. The other wrestler kneels
at his side and puts one arm
around his opponent's waist and
the other around hip elbow.
The situation is reversed in the
third period, with the contestants
exchanging positions.
Matches are won either by a
decision on the basis of points, or
by a pin in which one wrestler's
shoulders are on the mat for three
seconds. In team scoring, matches
won by falls count three points
each, those by decision count two.
During the match, points are

awarded foi the execution of cer-
tain patterns and holds. Two
points are given for a take-down,
near fall, and reversal. One point
is given for an escape, predica-
ment, and for riding time ad-
Riding time is the amount of
time that each man is in control
of the other. At the conclusion of
the match, if one on the wrestlers
has over a minute time advantage
over his opponent, he is awarded
the point.
Three points are scored if one
wrestler scores a near fall.

This Sunday's game between the
Detroit Lions and the Chicago:
Bears will climax the race for the
championship in the Western Div-
ision of the National Football
Going into the final battle of the
season, the Lions are in first place,
one-half game ahead of the Bears.
In the previous game between
the Lions and Bears this year, the
Lions won in a walkaway; but no
one is predicting that this will
happen again.
In their 20 meetings at Wrigley
Field dating back to 1934, the
Lions have only been able to
emerge victorious on five occas-
ions and only twice since the Lions
entered the NFL have they been
able to win two games from the
Bears in a season.
If the Lions are to emerge as
Western Division Champions, they
will have to break a jinx. In the
history of the NFL, there has never
been a case in which a team has
jumped from the cellar to the
division title at a single season.
Lions At Top Strength
The Lions will be at full strength
for the all important match with
the "Monsters of the Midway."
Guard Jim Salsbury will rejoin the
squad after being sidelined with
an injury for two weeks and rookie
halfback Don McIllhenny will be


... traded to arch-rival

NEW YORK (A')-Jackie Robin-
son, one of the most controversial
figures in baseball, was sold to the
rival New York Giants by the
Brooklyn Dodgers yesterday for a
reported $30,000 and pitcher Dick
The deal startled everybody in-
cluding Robinson. Robinson, who
will be 38 on Jan. 31, has talked
often of retiring. Uncertain about
his status in 1957, he asked the
Giants for a few days to think
it over.
Obviously shocked by the news,
first relayed to him Wednesday
night by telephone from both

in top shape after seeing only
limited action in last week's game
with Pittsburgh.
Directing the Lion backfield will
be quarterback Bobby Layne who
hit for 11 of 19 aerials for 210
yards and two touchdowns in the
previous meeting with the Bears.
At fullback will be 6'4", 250 lb.
Leon Hart who has an average of
4.7 yards per carry. In last week's
game against the Steelers, Hart,
who is a determined runner, ran
head on into Henry Ford of the
Steelers and knocked him un-
concious for a few minutes.
Left half will be filled by rookie
Hopalong Cassady who, along with
Mclllhenny, has bolstered the
Lions' running attack.
Gedman at Fullback
Gene Gedman, who returned
from the Army this year and turn-
ed into the team's leading ground
gainer, will probably be alternat-
ing with Hart at fullback and Mc-
Ulhenny at right-half.
Paddy Driscoll's Chicago Bears
happen to boast of the most
powerful offense in the Western
Fullback Rick Casares, the'
league's leading ground gainer,
Bobby Watkins, an elusive half-
back, and J. C. Caroline, who was
converted to offensive halfback
from the defense, make up quite
a terrifying running attack,

Directing this running attack
will be the job of quarterback Ed
Brown who is having himself quite
a year in the NFL. Brown is a pin-

fDodger and Giant officials, Rob-
insonsaid he realized "baseball is
like that."
Charles Feeney, Giants' vice
president, said he had talked with
Robinson and had been told he
was undecided about his future.
"He's going to get in touch with
us as soon as he has made up his
mind," said Feeney.
It was learned that Horace
Stoneham, Giants' president, had
called Robinson Wednesday night
after completing the deal with
Walter O'Malley, Dodger president,
and assured the player that he
would have no money problems
with the Giants. Robinson report-
edly received $33,000 last year, a
cut from his 1955 salary.
Robinson worked hard to get in
top condition last spring and won
the starting third base job from
Randy Jackson, who had been ex-
pected to chase him out of the

and stole 12 bases. Against the
Giants he was even more impres-
sive, batting .394 at the Polo

Since joining Brooklyn in 1947,
the first Negro ever to play in the
majors, Robinson has compiled a
lifetime batting average of .309.
He started his Brooklyn career at
first base and has played second,
third and the outfield.
Billy Rigney, manager of the
Giants, said at his home in Wal-
nut Creek, Calif., he plans to play
Robinson at first base in place of
Bill White, the 1956 regular who
now is in the Army.
Littlefield, who will be 31 in
March, was with Pittsburgh, St.
Louis, and New York last season,
finishing with a 4-6 season record.
At various times he also has pitch-
ed for the Boston Red Sox, Chi-
cago White Sox, Detroit, the St.
Louis Browns and Baltimore.
At his Detroit home, Littlefield
said he was surprised "but I'm
not unhappy about it. I'll be get-
ting a lot more runs to work with."
This may be only the first in a
series of moves by the Dodgers,
who are interested in unloading
some of their older players.
"I hope we're not finished trad-
ing yet," said Buzzy Bavasi,
Dodger vice president, "We could
use another outfielder."

Whitney Air



Engineers and scientists at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft
developed the piston engines that wrote aviation history
for three decades. Then came the jet age, and again it
was the P & W A team that came up with the mighty
J-57, most powerful production aircraft engine in the
world today. Behind such accomplishments, of course,
stand many development tools...tools like the house that
jet engines built: the Andrew Willgoos Laboratory.
Located on the eastern bank of the Connecticut River
in East Hartford, this windowless, thick concrete-walled
laboratory has been growing almost continuously since
its initial "completion" in 1950. As more powerful, far
more advanced turbojet engines are conceived, the means
for testing them in development stages must itself under-
go carefully calculated alteration. Hence, authorship of
today's specifications for Willgoos Laboratory properly
belongs to the experimental engines it is testing today.
Similarly, tomorrow's proportions, capacities and equip-
ment will depend upon the requirements of tomorrow's
power plants.
Behind the ponderous walls of this multi-million-dollar
structure lies the wherewithal to simulate many of the
rigorous flight conditions to be encountered by military
and commercial aircraft. The range of these conditions
must vary from ambient pressures and temperatures in
a static condition at sea level all the way to the pres-
sures, temperatures and high speeds involved in high-
altitude flight.
This, then, is the house that jet engines built; at the s
same time, it is the house that tomorrow's engines will
change and re-build.

point passer and is able to throw
long passes to his favorite targets.
Those favorite targets probably
present the biggest worry to the
Lions. They are Harlon Hill, Bill
McColl and Gene Schroeder. Each
one ranks with the top flankers in
the league, and combined with
Brown's deadly arm are three big
reasons why the Bears are even
money to win the game.
