The power-packed West team has been established at a 6Vi point .favorite. On Its squad arc All America quarterback D6n Heinrich of Washington, left half Billy Vessels of Oklahoma, and defensive tackle J. D. Kimmel of Houston. The East, with less nationally heralded luminaries on its squad, has Tom Scott, defensive end from Virginia, as its player of, All- America stature. Some of the lesser lights cnuld easily steal the show, however: such ai the East's Tom Seaman of Notre Dame or the West's Hick Batten of the College of the Pacific. Both are defensive guards. Batten, incidentally, is the first former patient cf the Shrincr's Hospital to play in the game. The 220-pound giant was cured of de- formed feet 20 yei.rs ago and since has won two'lcttjrs at COP and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.

The power Moreno Gets Reversed Win At Armory A post-match rumpus in the ring brought a reversed decision by Referee Gorilla Poggi and the duo of Gory Guerrero and Carlos Moreno a win in the Armory's main event tag team match Fri- day night.' A spinning toehold plus a few well aimed kicks to the stomach by Dory Funk over Moreno pro- duced the deciding fall in 12 min- utes. But Moreno and Guerrero protested heatedly. Then came the ring rhubarb involving all contestants plus Poggi and the changed verdict. Funk had the first over Guerrero In 23 minutes on a spinning toehold after the win- ner and his partner, George Overtoils, had put on a real Pat and Mike burlesque for the es- timated T800 customers. Guer- rero defeated Ovcrhuls in seven with a scries of dropklcks. In the special event, Ethel ohnson captured two straight falls from Babs Wlngo in a bout matching a pair of talented Negro fern artists. Johnson overcame her opponent's rough.tactics.with case, uiing rope strangles in the first and dropkicks in the'second. In the curtain-raiser, Hay Ur- bano defeated Tom Martindale in 18 minutes with a spread eagle.

They ivarned their southern hosts that the college gentlemen they brought here for the annual all-star game will be anything but gentle during the 68 minute tussle. And to show their weren't kidding, they not only rigged up a powerful passing attack but added a wicked defensive system designed especially to break up the party when {he Rebels try to throw the ball. The northern visitors aren't ex- actly mad at anyone. They're just plain tired of coming to Mont- gomery year after year for a round of royal and a licking on the football field. Nine times In the previous 13 games they've had that expert' nee. This year It may be different. Even the .weather man seems to be siding, with the .unhappy .lads from the other side of the Mason- Dixon line. He has promised cold, clear weather -for the game, just what the Yankees like.

D'Achille, who probably will start at quarterback, hit his re ceivcrs 79 times for 1025 yards. The Rebels have a smooth- functioning pass attack, too, so the northern coaches devised a 5-2-3-1 defense to block it. That gives six men in the two linebackers, three backs anc a safety man.

JOINS RED WINGS DETROIT, Dec. 26 Detroit Red Wings announced today that Marcel Bonln, 21, right winger and leading scorer of the St.- Louis Flyers, will join the Wings for their National Hockey League game in Mon- treal Saturday night. CLEVELAND. Dec. 28 The 1952 world's pro football hampionshlp well might go to he team whose ends do the best ob here Sunday afternoon, and Cleveland's Browns won't have rlac Specdlc. Coach Paul Brown said today he had "no plans" for using Speedie or Halfback Dub Jones gainst the Detroit Lions, who rrive here tonight. Brown has been saying all week he didn't -have much hope either would play, but today's announcement was more formal. it was In compliance with NH- :lonal Football League Commis- sioner Bert, Bell's recent instruc- ;ions to let the public know a 'ew days before any game which ilayers would be sidelined. Speedie, whose 62 pass re- ceptions were tops In the league, has a swollen knee, twisted at New York against the Giants Dec. 14. Jones, whose 43 pass receptions are eighth best In the league this year, also twisted his knee against thr Giants. Tackle John Kisscll. who's had an ankle sprain, docs figure in Brown's plans for Sunday. Kir- sell has a topnotch substitute in Bob Gain, former Kentucky star. There's an outside chance Speedie and Jones will get in for a few plays, for Brown's an- nouncement today doesn't make them ineligible. But their knees are In no shape for top speed running or pivoting. And when a pass catcher can't speed and pivot, he's of no use. Darrcll Brewster, a rookie from Purdue, has been worklns out in Spccdic's spot at left end: and Ray Renfro, a North Texas State rookie, is prepared to go in Jones' offensive right halfback post. Even with Speedie absent, much of the excitement await- ing an expected fans should generate from the play of the and de- both clubs. The burden of taking up the slack from Speedie's benching will fall on Dante Lavelll, the Browns' right end. Part of Speed- ie's great record this; year re- sulted indirectly from Lavelli's missing five full games with in- juries. With Dante out. Mac got more than his share of tosser. Ordinarily experts 'rate Lavelll a slight edge over Speedie. Detroit's offensive Box and Leon two oi the best In the business. Hart, a six-five 260-pounder. caught both touchdown passes when the Lions beat the Browns 17-8 earlier this season. And in the National Conference play-of against Los Angeles he bagged an important touchdown. He goer. high, and 'because of his size is tough for comparatively small de- fensive halfbacks to bring down or outjump. Box, also big for an end at slx-f our and 220, caught 15 touchdown passes this season, most In the league. He's sprinter who started out as a halfback and gave It up after a mediocre ball-carrying record of 63 yards gain In 30 tries In 1049 before he Joined Detroit. In most of the games this year, opponents put two guards an Box. but he fitlll outran them as he did last Sunday In catching a 51-yarder from Bobby Lsyne to set tip a touchdown. The two clubs arc matched closely with fine defensive ends. How much they harry Quarter- back Otto Graham of .the Browns and Layne of the Lions can make or break the aerial attack which is each club's offensive forte. George Young and Lennie Ford of the Browns are veterans with few superiors on their jobs. Ford, in rushing Layne, will have to get around blocking fullback Pat Harder, and will have every per- sonal Incentive to do It. Harder broke Ford's jaw here two years ago when Pat was playing for the Chicago Cardinals. Jimmy Doran and Blaln Earon, the Lions' defensive ends, usual- ly rush the passer recklessly, leaving the handling of a chance' end run to the defensive half- backs who play fairly close to the line of scrimmage. His teammates thought so highly of Duran they picked him as the team's most valuable player this month. Cubs' Harry Chiti Enters Army Service FORT LEE, Va..
