Joe Dondero Reports: Newman High In 670 Landslide Over Bettendorf The Bettendorf Bulldogs, new- est member of the Illowa Confer- ence, were the victims of a deter- mined Comet team. This was the high school finale for 13 Senior athletes. John McDonnell, George Grieb, John Dieterle, Ned Dewey, Jerry Shinville, Bob Kay, Rocco Matera, Bob Bradley, Joe McCue, Paul Vock, Tom Downie, John O'- Malley and Joe Dondero were play- ing their last game for Newman. The 67-0 score is a record at New- man High. The Comets elected to receive. The Bulldogs were by no means undermanned. A 300 pound guard and a 215 lb. fullback led an im- pressive array of teammates. New- man was stopped after four plays and Bettendorf took over. The Comets regained possession. Soon the first score was made. The score reached 26 and Coach Mc- Donnell sent in a whole new team for the second quarter. These boys made a fine showing by scoring on the visitors. Newman led 32-0 at the half. The second half was much the same story. Each touchdown was six points closer to safety. Finally, with 50 seconds remaining the rec- ord breaking score came. Grieb's conversions and plunges also en- chanced the Comets' efforts. Ma- tera's fine passing to Vock and McCue was instrumental in the victory. In the line it was Diet- erle, O'Malley, Kay and Downie. Co-Captain Ned Dewey turned in a fine defensive and offensive performance as did Shinville. This was the Comets' last grid effort.

The Green Knights, coached by Tom Hearden, earned the title by defeating St. Joseph's at Rensse- laer, Ind., Sunday, 26-0. The win also gave the Knights a perfect record for 1952 with six wins. St. Norbert last won the league title in 1950. In the race for second place, boras of Dubuque, Iowa, will mo- tor down river to Davenport for another renewal of the hot state rivalry with the St. Ambrose Bees. The teams are currently tied with two wins and a loss apiece. Bringing up the rear is the 1951 champion Lewis college of Lock- port, Ill., and St. Joseph's, who will square off at Joliet, Ill., Me- morial stadium Sunday. Tied with three losses apiece in conference play, the teams will be contending for fourth place. To the loser be- longs the cellar. In all games, Loras owns the most impressive record with seven wins in eight games, the only loss being to St. Norbert. The Bees have a 4-4 record. Lewis has won two of seven starts, while the Pumas are winless in eight tries. All diocesan high schools have now turned their full attention to the basketball season. Each is out to better their record of last year. However, one school will have a difficult time bettering its confer- ence record. St. Edward High of Elgin should be content to duplicate previous performances. The Green Wave will be out for its ninth straight league crown in the Northeast CathQlic Conference. Six former lettermen have reported to Coach True and are preparing for their opening tilt against West Chicago. The game will be played in St. Ed- ward gym, Saturday, Nov. 29. Heading the squad is Johnnie Paul. The six-foot, two-inch for- ward has three years of varsity competition behind him. Other lettermen returning are Bob Doherty, Russ Flares, Tom Caughlin, Jim Moscato and Jerry Campagna. Dave Kasten, a trans- fer student from Elgin High, is slated for action at both center and forward. Savanna Holy Name Society Sees Movies Of European ToUr Savanna--The Holy Name so- ciety of St. John's parish, here, met Thursday evening, Nov. 13, in the parish hall. The Rev. E. L. McDonald, assistant pastor at St. John's, showed pictures taken by him in Europe last summer. Since its reorganization the so- ciety has made a concerted effort to make Catholic reading readily available to the people of the par- ish. "Sell and Give" is substan- tially their program. With pro- ceeds derived from the sale of the Catholic Digest and Sign, the so- ciety maintains a pamphlet rack in the vestibule of the church. All material on the rack is offered without charge. In addition to Communion Sun- day, the group has regular meet- ings the second Thursday of the month. Howard Buck is president and Merle Giesler, vice president.

By the action, California" now falls in line with the other 47 States of the Union. It has been the only State where a tax on non-profit, non-public schools has been in effect. The plurality in favor of approval of the proposition 75,000 votes, with nearly all of the#-- State's 20,745 precincts reported. },. . The action marked the secondlrreeprr Holy Name time in as many years that pro- ponents of the tax exemption have been victo~ous. The tax system long has been opposed by Catholic and other religious leaders and educators. A movement to have the tax repealed was succ4ssful in 1951 when the State Assembly and Senate approved a bill calling for the exemption. The bill was signed by Gov. Earl Warren. How- ever, advocates of circu- lated a petition, which abstained the legally required number of signa tures, demanding a referendum or repeal of the law. This action forced the referendum which was submitted to the State's voters at the November 4 general election. Heavy votes in favor of the proposition's approval were record- ed in Los Angeles, where there was a plurality of more than 150,000 affirmative votes and in San Francisco where the plurality was better than 30,000. Among places where that lead was reduced were San Diego, Fresno and Alameda County. The total State vote for approval was some 2,225,000. Still to be counted are some 153,000 absentee ballots. They will be tabulated on November 20, but officials estimate conservatively that more than half of these will favor the proposition. Problems Discussed At Rural Week Sponsored By Brazilian Hierarchy Campanha, Minas Gerais, Brazil --(NC)-- Problems confronting Brazil's agricultural areas were discussed here at the first of a series of Rural Weeks being pro- moted by the Brazilian Hierarchy with the collaboration of the Min- istry of Agriculture. Participants in the Week were welcomed by Bishop Inocencio Engelke of Campanha, who said the needs and problems of the rural worker, especially in areas where living standards were far below normal, were a challenge to the whole community. One of the problems discussed was the conscription of farmers and farm laborers for military ser- vice. Delegates warned that indis- criminate conscription of farm workers to serve in city garrisons tended to alienate them from the land and adversely to affect their future. They proposed instead that rural battalions be formed for the training of farmers called up for military service. During the Week, farmers were given courses in soil conservation, reforestation, better methods of farming, and the cultivation of orchards. The farmers were shown also how to operate farm clubs, and how to improve living condi- tions in their homes and commun- ities.
