Guard Loss Jolts Hopes Of Coyotes HE football hopes of the Phoenix Union High School Coyotes received another jolt yesterday with the announcement that Art Yoshimura, star guard, will not be available for Monday's game with the Tucsqn Badgers. The death of Yoshimura's father yesterday not only makes it impossible for him to play Monday, but may mean that Art will be forced to quit school. Yoshimura is one of the most dependable players on the Phoenix line. Long Beach, Calif., Polytechnic High School players rated him the best man on the Phoenix team, and were loud in their praise of his playing in that game. Coach Larry R.ouble will replace him with Salvador Mondragon first-string line reserve, who has had a shot both at guard and tackle this year. Eddie Gillum is another possible replacement at guard. The backfield situation took turn for the better yesterday when Bill Cavin returned to practice. He still limps but expects to . be in shape by Monday. Rouble will go into the Tucson game with seven backs, which should be enough. Frank Tarazan, who has been drafted from the Grays, is the least experienced, but he possesses speed and is a good pass receiver. He may .get a chance to play safety if Sonny Karnofsky is out of the game—or Rouble may depend on Smith. Riveras, the usual alternate, will not he in uniform, as his injured leg is improving very slowly. Paul Parmenter, Bill Blair and Les Harris are the other available backs. j Jose Ruiz, injured end, put on a i uniform yesterday for the first time since the Santa Barbara game.
