Southeast SPORTS Cavalcade LEM FRANKLIN AND EDDIE SIMS, rival CLEVELAND heavy- weights, will meet in a 10-round bout as finalists in PROMOTER MIQOE MALLOY'S fistic offering tomorrow night in the WHITE CITY arena, 63rd st. and South Park SIMMS stopped FRANKLIN in the eighth round of a previous match held in CLEVELAND last Winter. Backers of the former international amateur champion, however, are confident that LEM now has the experience to reverse the former result. To back them up they point to FRANKLIN'S sen- sational one-round kayo over PERK DANIELS in an eight-round bout that headlined MALLOY'S card in WHITE CITY a week ago last Fri- day. SIMS beat TONY MUSTO in his last WHITE CITY showing on September 1. He followed that bout with a win over SANDY M'DONALD on November 3 in KANSAS CITY. Four other bouts and a wrestling match will complete the evening's card. Incidentally, MALLOY announced yesterday that he has obtained the consent of JOHNNY RAY. manager of BILLY CONN, world's light- heavyweight champ, to have CONN box here just as soon as a suitable opponent is available. MIQUE. in case you don't know, promoted the only appearance in CHICAGO Of HURRICANE HENRY ARM- STRONG. WHEN THE FINAL whistle blew in the WILSON JUNIOR coIlege-MORGAN PARK game Thanksgiving morning, the ILLI- NOIS JUNIOR COLLEGE CON- FERENCE football championship went to WILSON by virtue of their 13 to 0 victory. The win gave them a season total of five games won and none lost. The title gives WILSON four championships in the conference for 1939, the others being in track, tennis and baseball. The track championship was the sixth in a row in that sport. The first WILSON score in the MORGAN PARK game came in the third quarter when left end EMMETT TAYLOR, sub for HILDING OLANDER, tossed a 50-yard pass to NORMAN MACKIE, fullback. MACKIE ran the remaining five yards for the touchdown. The second tally came in the fourth period when HARRY LEACH, fullback, dove over from the five-yard line to culminate a 60-yard drive down the field. A pass from MACKIE to HARRY KENT was good for the extra point. The game wound up the grid season for WILSON. HYDE PARK HIGH school's foot- ball squad traveled to ST. LOUIS for a THANKSGIVING day game with UNIVERSITY CITY high school of that city and lost a heart- breaking game by a score of 21 to 13. UNIVERSITY high eked out a touchdown and a safety in the final minutes of play to down the Southeast side squad. The AITCHPE team, led by the sensa- tional passing of JACK MEEHAN, outplayed and outfought their rivals, who are MISSOURI state champs. MEEHAN completed 19 out of 24 passes and was rated by observers of the game as the best passer ever seen in those paxts. The lanky halfback completed an 18-yard toss to MARKS for the first score and galloped 47 yards in the fourth period with seven minutes remain- ing to play to tie the score. HYDE PARK'S failure to achieve victory was due mainly to over anxiousness, as two touchdowns were called back on offside penalties. COACH HASEN was gratified with the performance of his squad and said it was their finest exhibition of the season. AS PREDICTED here last week, HIRSCH upheld the prestige of the public high schools over their CATHOLIC rivals by nipping DE LA SALLE 3 to 0 in a THANKS- GIVING day battle in the 124th FIELD ARTILLERY armory. The game was more decisive than the score would indicate, as HIRSCH was in control of the situation throughout.

THURSDAY and FRIDAY ONLY ECLIPSE LAUNDRY CO. Triangle 7500 KANT-HARM PROCESS 957 E. 75th Street their shifty halfback, BOB ROB- INSON, HIRSCH threatened to score several times in the first half, but were unable to put the ball over. Not until the final quarter did' HIRSCH break the ice and that on a 25-yard place- kick by WARREN TENGBLATT, scrappy guard. HIRSCH'S goal line was never threatened and only once did DE LA SALLE advance beyond the 30-yard line. HULL, TENGBLATT and SA- BINO were the spearhead of the HIRSCHITES strong defense. HYDE PARK'S junior and senior basketball squads opened the bas- ketball season last week with twin victories over the alumni in the school gym. The seniors, led by CAPTAIN DAVIS, nipped the alumni in overtime by a score of 31 to 29. DAVIS proved the star of the game by scoring 12 points and tallying the winning bas- ket. Two scrappy forwards, STOTT and BRAHMAN, paced the juniors in a 29 to 24 victory over the alumni. BRAHAM led the scoring with 12 points and STOTT was the bulwark of the defense. Tomorrow HYDE PARK travels to BLUE ISLAND to engage the local fives and next Tuesday to ST. MEL for another set of warmup tilts. Both HIRSCH and BOWEN are planning to book some practice tilts for next week in an effort to get ready for the regular season. FACING THEIR MOST difficult schedule in several years, COACH GEORGE BOYLE'S basketball' squad at the CHICAGO TEACH- ERS' college will open its schedule against DE PAUL Saturday. The frosh of the two schools will meet in a curtain-raiser. With the return of AL BENISH, right forward who has been out with an ankle injury, the squad is once more at full strength. It is doubtful, however, that BENISH will be in the opening lineup. CHARLES KANE, a center, and JAMES SULLIVAN, forward, both six-foolers, may get the nod to start. Adding real aggressive- ness to their height, these two have shown plenty of ability in recent workouts. At the pres- ent time, the first team consists of ROGER MULCAHY and MARK JEHN at the forwards, JOE KING at center and JERRY HEALY and ALEX GOTTFRIED at the guards. The squad is small, consisting of only 12 men, and all probably will see plenty of JAY SWEENEY, left end for the BUGS football team, recovered a HAWK fumble and raced 75 yards for a touchdown in the BUC-HAWK game in FOSTER park last Sunday and "LEFTY" HUNT, right half, added the extra point to give the BUGS a 7 to 6 victory. The con- test was the first in which the HAWKS have been defeated in three years and the first time they have been scored on this season. The BUGS will meet the WALSH JRS. Sunday. December 10, in the 124th Field Artillery armory, 52nd st. and Cottage Grove ave., for the junior championship of the DR. BENNETT league. LEADING THE SOUTH SHORE women's bowling league are the BEND FELTS, with 29 games won as against 10 losses. In second place are the LOUIS SANDACHS with a record of 26 and 13, while MRS. HACKELS BREAD team is in third place with 25 and 14. Only two teams, MRS. HACKELS BREAD and the SANDACKS .swept their series in games this past week. Hith team series went to the former with a score of FRIEDA TANNER had the high individual series with Other high scorers were HELEN DHEUR with 556, MARGE COVERT with 553, OPAL REED with 542, DOROTHY SAUNDERS with 507, HELEN CULLEN with 502 and EMMA FORITA with 502. JOTTINGS: Overconfidence in the face of their onesided win over SCHURZ last week may prove a stumbling, block for FENGER in their big game Saturday with MT. CARMEL. The Southeast side team has had two weeks in which to point for their rivals and are anxious to wipe out last year's de- feat as well as become the first CATHOLIC prep team to win the city title. Although CARMEL must be rated the underdog in Sat- urday's tilt, the spectators are promised a, great show, with three of the city's greatest backs cavorting on the same field, FENCER'S DON GRIFFIN and CARMEL'S touch- down twins, MEAKIM and ANDRE- TICH.
