But the diminishing Odds which once were seven Points slipped to Day to margin of a Lou Groza Field goal. The Weatherman says harmless Low flurries Are expected to fall during this 21st title tilt with temperatures ranging from 32 to 3f degrees the game starting at 1 Will be televised from coast to coast with Detroit and a 75-mile blacked out. This includes Toledo. The Dumont network said it will be seen by an estimated 20 million people Over 132 television outlets. It also will be broadcast by the Mutual network.

It is soft and Mushy in spots and hard in others. There s very Little grass left and there s nothing but mud along one of the sidelines. The ground keepers said this will be covered Over with dirt by game time. I Don t know if Well use cleats or said Parker. Ill make up mind before the it was 28 degrees and the Lions used cleats in Cleveland last year pro football. Save your u. S. Money brat top Man As Southern lads win fourth straight morph South College All Star foot Ball game has grown in popularity each year since it was started aul there s a question whether this rend will continue. Much depends on whether the Orth. In the future can produce setter football players to forestall such 20-0 hiding As the Yankees took last night. It was the fourth Victory for the rebels. The lads from the Snow country have won Only once. Save your . Money sports editor Stanley Woodward of the Miami daily news advised to Day. The North May Rise Woodward conceded however hat the immediate revival of the Yankees is not to be expected in View of the whacking they took ast night from a South team that appeared u be trying to hold the score Down. Zeke Bratkowski the great geor a quarterback set up All three with Long passes o his teammate John Carson and another with a coffin Corner punt every time Zeke got warmed up Good the coach pulled him out. By making full use of Zeke s talents there was a general suspicion fhe South could have run the score to astronomic proportions. Billed As a great running team the North s offensive efforts won Only polite applause from the crowd of the Georgia brat rifled passes of 30 and 33 Yards to his team mate John Carson to set the stage for two South scores and he engineered the other by booting a 49-Yard Beauty out of Bounds just inches from the North goal. Duke s de Meadows converted this spectacular kick into a touch Down on the next play when he picked a Fumble by Iowa s dust Rice out of the air at the three and stepped across the North goal. Two of the South s touchdowns came in the first period and this i3-0 margin would have been ample or the North offence never could get going against a Savage South defensive line that frequently slam Ned its runners and passers Back or Long losses. Towering standouts in the South defense were Crawford Mims the Mississippi All America guard Tom Miner a massive Tulsa end Meadows a Swift smart tackle rom Duke and Missouri s half backed Merrifield. Mims voted the most valuable player in the game Miner and Meadows slashed through time after time to clobber the Yankee plays before they could get in motion and Merrifield twice broke off North threats with pass interceptions. It was the fourth Victory for the South in the 6-Ycar-old series. The North has won Only once. Last year s game was a thrilling 21-21 tie.

That marked the second straight Cleveland was beaten in the whipped so it s not hard to Sec Why the Browns and especially coach Brown Are determined to win t h i one. They want to avoid Boi tagged the Brooklyn Dodg Nin Viall Ingle is of Parker says defense Likely Wai decide the game. 4i both teams Are great defensive said the Detroit coach. That s what should decide Brown who has never beaten Parker couched team said the two teams Ere different in style. They Brown said Otto Graham is a Superior that a than Detroit s Bobby Layne. Bui this Layne runs with the bail. That s something in bail quarterback does during the season Graham Trendo history by completing Almus 5 per cent of his passes Lynt lit Only 4b per cent but was the Lions Secund leading ground gainer with 343 Yards. Commit Ioner Bert Bell is in Thusia Suc about the game. There s More interest than Ever in this game because of Bell said. We televised our games Dur ing the season and had our Best year in there will be sudden death if the game ends in a tie after the regulation 60 minutes. A Coin will be flipped to determine who kicks off and the teams will play until somebody scores. We Don t want any of that said Detroit coach Aldo Forte. Not when they be got a Guy like Groza on their Groza kicked 23 Field goals during the season. Cleveland enters the game with an 11-1 record losing to Phila Delphia in the final game of the season. Detroit s Mark is 10-2, with most of their victories coming by narrow margins. Fifty seven newspapers applied for working press credentials at testing to the interest in the game.
