18 ~ PATENT TRADER Saturday, Dec. 2, 1972 Army, Navy gridders battle today for 73rd time PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - When Army and Navy meet hfead-on this afternoon, the success or failure of the 1972 football season will be rifling on the outcome. Forget about the \pre-game season,\ today's 73ra meeting between these two arch-rivals will be for all the marbles and grid fans all over the world should be in for a real treat. John F. Kennedy Stadium, which is used only for this annual classic, is expected to have its usual 100,000 plus drowd. For those who are not faking the trek to Philadelphia, the game can be seen on national television (Ch 7 12:30 p m.) Kickoff is 12:50 p.m. , The Cadets enter today's game with a 5-4 re.cord. With its 1(5-13 victory over Holy Cross, Army assured itself of a break­ even season at worst The Cadets are shooting for their second straight victory, a feat they have achieved on only one other occasion this fall. Army lost to defending national champion Nebraska, 77-7; rebounded brilliantly to stun Texas A&M, 24-14; held off upset-minded Lehigh, 26-21; lost to nationally-ranked Penn State, 45-0; rallied to overcome Rutgers, 35-28; dropped a 28-7 Homecoming decision to Miami; scored an emotional 17- 14 upset over nationally-ranked Air Force, couldn't get its attack unmired in a muddy 27-6 loss to Syracuse and battled from behind to turn back stubborn Holy Cross, 15-13 It should be noted that the Cadets have been behind in all nine games to date, and were able to recover in five of them for victory Navy comes into the game with a 4-6 record By virtue of victories over William & Mary. Boston College, -Air Force and Pittsburgh, the Midshipmen already have more wins in a single season than any of coach Rick Forzano's previous three campaigns.

Both Penn State and Syracuse scored victories over Army and Navy, while Air Force lost to both academies The winner of the Army-Navy game, thusly, will be recognized as the \Service Academy Champion\ for 1972. Army leads in the series which had its beginning in 1890, having won 35 games to 31 by Navy. Six others ended in a tie. Navy won that historic first meeting in 1890 by a 24-0 score, while last year's thriller in Philadelphia went to Army by a 24-23 margin — the first one- point decision in the history of the series No team has been able to string more than five victories in succession. Army won five in a row from 1927 through 1933, while Navy put together a string of five from 1959 through 1963 Since taking over Army reins in 1966, Tom Cahill is 4-2 against Navy; Navy coach Rick For- zano, in his fourth year at the Middie helm, is 1-2 against Army The word from the West Point training room couldn't be any better — excellent. Since a rash of early-season injuries, the Cadets have been able to stay away from the bugaboo, and will enter the Navy game at full strength The two injuries which hurt the Cadets most in the early going were those to wide receiver Ed Francis and running back Bob Portante. Francis, the second leading receiver a year ago with 23 catches (one of those for a fourth-quarter touchdown against Navy), broke a leg while working on his own just days prior to the start of fall practice sessions. He missed the first six games this season, but has been a starter since the upset of Air Force. Portante, a senior from Windber, Pa., has played only one down of football this fall. After working his way into the starting lineup for the opener with Nebraska, he suffered a fracture of the right wrist on the V V v. -. \ K « SOPHOMORE RECEIVER Barry Armstrong of Army will get his first taste of Army-Navy varsity ri­ valry this afternoon. Armstrong averaged over 20 yards per catch this season, two of them touchdowns. A SAVINGS ACCOUNT IN GIFT WRAPPING! Great way to say 'Memj Christmas Open a savings account for someone you love.

T t Paul Spadaro, Rothfuss gain running honors Two area cross country stars, .Brian Rothfuss and Paul Spadaro, recently ran strong races in two separate meets. Rothfuss of Peekskill, a 15- year-old junior at John F. Kennedy High, was 25th overall and third among schoolboy runners at the 36th annual Manchester (Conn.) Race. His time over the five-mile course was 25:03. The classic drew 559 entries of which 429 finished. Spadaro of Yorktown, who attends the State University at New Paltz, finished runnerup in the five-mile open run at the fourth annual Turkey Trot Races held Thanksgiving Day at Freedom Plains in Dutchess County. Spadaro, a former Yorktown star, had a 27:26 clocking while Bruce Selman, a former runner at NYU, won the race in 26:34. very first play from scrim­ mage. He returned to the practice field the week of the Holy Cross game, but did not see any action that Saturday. At present, he is listed behind Bob Pines and Bruce Simpson at the tailback spot. Today's game has been keeping Army head coach Tom Cahill thinking, mostly about the Middies balanced attack. \Navy is a vastly improved football team, there's no doubt about that. From what we have seen of them this year, and that's quite a bit, we have been very Impressed. \They have excellent balance, between their running game and their passing game. Fred Stuvek did a masterful job against us last year, and he's not even a starter now. Cooper and Howard have been con­ sistently good, and time and time again have made the big plays when they were needed the most. \Navy has been in against ysomegood competition this fall, yet their defense has turned in some fine efforts. This shapes up as a typical Army-Navy game, with, emotion again playing a very important role.\ The entire Corps of Cadets will attend the game, and will be seated on the East side of the stands. The Corps of Cadets will commence its march-in to JFK Stadium at 11:15 a.m., followed 'by the Brigade of Midshipmen at 11:40 a.m. Headquarters for Army is the Benjamin Franklin Hotel, tor Navy the Bellevue- Stratford Hotel. The Army offensive unit remains intact, but changes are indicated at three defensive positions. At inside left linebacker, senior veteran Gary Topping, who lost his starting berth for Holy Cross, returns to the opening lineup. Tim Pfister, another senior letterman, likewise has been promoted to the starting group at inside right linebacker. The two move ahead of juniors Skip Whitman and Dave Molten. Gerry Markham, the starter at defensive right tackle for the first half-dozen games, returns to his old spot in the lineup after giving way to Ernie Chachere the past three weeks. Otherwise, the defensive picture will be the same as it has been. Team captain Steve Bogosian is secure at right end, while on the left side sophomore Bob Johnson continues to hold hiB own despite strong pressure from seniors Bob Jarrell and Bob Souza. Both Jarrell and Souza have known starting responsibility this fall, Souza opening the season there until suffering a knee injury against Penn State. Charlie Mitchell will be at left tackle, with Joe Furloni and Scott Beaty at the left and right corners, and the senior trio of Matt Wo tell, Jim Bryan and Mercer Ferguson in the secondary. The offensive line will find Ed Francis at split end, Joe Miller at tight end, Art Peterson and Ted Krawczyk at tackle, Cliff EARLY SNOWBIRD SALE! Offir lulrai 0«c. 23,1972, lubjtct to availability.

The backfield has Kingsley Fink at quarterback, Bob Hines at tailback, Willie Thigpen at fullback and Jim Ward at flanker. Fink has completed 82 . of 180 pass attempts for 1086 yards and six touchdowns this fall, credentials good enough to place him fourth on the all-time Army passing list in single season play. His career totals of 150 completions in 337 attempts for 1885 yards has him fifth on the all-time list. With just ten more completions, he will jump to third. Hines, the workhorse of the Army backfield, has rushed 172 times for a net gain of 772 yards. John Goodman Another Robby to break the line? The first Black manager in major league baseball may be right around the corner. That's the conclusion this writer draws from Tuesday's trade which sent Frank Robinson, the only player to win the coveted Most Valuable Player award in both the American and National league, to the California Angels. Outwardly Angel general manager Harry Dalton spoke about Robby's still obvious talents and his lead­ ership among the younger players. But inwardly Dalton is probably looking to the veteran outfielder as his future manager. Bobby Winkles, who graduated from champion teams at Arizona State to the coaching lines of the Angels, was hired to manage the AL entry this season. As good a manager as Winkles is, one can't blame Bobby for looking over his shoulder. Robinson just might be baseball's first Black man­ ager. After years of neglect, the powers who wheel and deal will eventually make the move. Baseball, like the ostrich, has had its head in the sand for too long. And Robby seems to be the perfect pick. Dalton's love affair with Robinson was initiated when Harry, then GM for the Baltimore Orioles, heisted Frank from the Cincinnati Reds for pitcher Milt Pappas. That memorable trade, pehaps the grea­ test steal in baseball history, molded the rag-tag Orioles into world champions. Robinson, who has spoken about his desire to manage, got his first chance a few years ago in Puerto Rico during the winter season. Robinson was as successful directing his team as he was playing for the Orioles. He led them to a title and had a major influence on a young outfielder named Reggie Jackson Oakland's All-Star outfielder still credits Robby for his instruction and advice to this day. Frank spent last season in Los Angeles playing for the Dodgers He had an average season for most, but was below par for a superstar. But age may have caught up to the once fleet Robinson. Frank, 37, can't run the bases and slide with his spikes high in the air intimidating infielders like he used to. He still can play the game, however, and Dalton believes that Robby can help the struggling Angels. And when Robinson finally decides \to hang them up\ it would come as little surprise to see Frank rise to the top. Robinson is just one of the many Black men who have had the ability to manage in the majors. Others, perhaps even more qualified, have been given token positions or have been overlooked when the yearly guillotine has fallen on managers. The excuse of \unqualified\ or \not knowled­ geable enough\ has fallen by the wayside. The public won't buy it anymore. Baseball's first Black manager will not be hired as a historic public relations gimmick. Too many capable men like Robinson, John Roseboro, Maury Wills and Jim Gilliam can be found throughout baseball. Dalton is an innovator. He knows Robinson and more important, respects Robinson He wouldn't hire Robby because of his color, but his ability to lead a baseball team Robinson's namesake, Jackie Robinson, who pioneered so many civil rights movements, never lived to see his ultimate wish, a black manager He openly spoke about it and hit home hard when he stated that desire to a World Series crowd and national TV audience this fall. But time ran out for Jackie. Meanwhile baseball fans, both black and white, await the eventual historic move. Jackie broke the color line and Frank just may establish another prece­ dent It's about time « « * 3# * Cuts a » 36-inch » path I » Model 88 *8-hp.
