"Our offense will be there," Coach ; .

"Only three of thai group ; failed to start every game last season." To further complicate things, Thomson argues, Lloyd Woodeil. the sensational sophomore center of '36, has rc- ported with a bad ankle injured in a Softball game several weeks ago. Ben• ton and Hamilton, all hands agr>"e, should be two of the finest starting wingmon in the nation. But only one ' oilier veteran, Nathan Gordon, is ..',' available. i •; 1 Three giant sophomore tackles of last season, Ed Lalnnm, Ramlell. Slallings and Lunday Corpbcll, all lettermen, erase worries over starters for those posts. Stocky George Gilmorc, whom Razorback partisans believe is an all• conference possibility, and B. A. Owen, chubby placu-kicKing star who boots : them from any angle, .should draw down the guard assignments but again there is only one capable and tried rosoi've—Drew Martin, reliable on tho defense. ''Deciding on a fullback will be the ..': : ' only hard task facing our coaching : staff in rounding out a fine backfield," Thomsen said. Two. not ju.st one, passers will be I abailable all the lime, for Dwisiht Sloan, a bounding halfback who was pushing Robbins [or tho sports pugo glpry at the tafl end of the '36 season will bo in there as a regular and not as Robbins' understudy. "If Arkansas' opponents know which one is going to pass next, they probably will know more than I do," Thomson quipped. Quarterback Ralph Rawlings, a .speedster who ju.st. miraed leading conference scorers last year, and Lloyd Montgomery, a biij halfback who almost took the Arkansas rax.zlc-daz/lc too seriously and was a trifle too daring, will bo .seen often in the Hog backfield. Tlie big question mark is whether Marion Fletcher, who packs the six.e and build of a great fullback but fell ju.st short of expectations in '36, can come through. Capable sophomores, Thomson hopes, will push Fletcher hard enough to make him it the stride expected of im.

The Atlantic City auditorium contains the largest pipe organ in the world. Hitler Book Leaves Vienna Entirely Cold VIENNA.— (IP) — Relchsfuehrer Hitler's book, "Mein Kampf," put on open sale here for the first time since the Nazi party was declared illegal, isn't having the success in Austria that people hoped, or feared, it would. For one thing, the Germans expected that a cheap edition, which even the poorest could buy, would be permitted. It wasn't. Again, no advertising is allowed in its behalf. The Linzer Volksblatl declared that "Mein Kampf" would not be the dangerous propaganda Austrian officials for four years feared it would be. The newspaper said people could now realize the book had been written so long ago that much of it didn't apply now, and that they could find plenty of things in it that were not true. Two Jewish booksellers told The Associated Press they were stocking the book. One regarded it as stock in trade. The other feared that if he did not carry it Nazis might break his show windows.

"Soi-i-y, but you two fellows liave my seat 1 .". hr. By RICHARD McCANN •*» NEA Service Sports Writer Joe woke up as soon as he hit the floor. "Come on, lunkhead," said Charley, towering over him, 'it's after 7. . . ." Joe got up groaning. Why did Charley think it was so much fun to roll a guy out of bed—especially a guy with a bum knee? But they've been waking guys up like this in football training camps for years and there's nothing you can do about it, Joe thought resignedly, reaching for his khaki shorts, the camp's accepted morning, noon, and dinner attire. Have to hustle . . . after 7 o'clock . . . just gotla shave today—it's been two weeks now . . . it's hell shaving, too ... a man't can get rid of two weeks' growth with cold water . . . the school oughta heat it even though nobody but the players were in the dormitories. The two-lap jog around the track wasn't so bad. You get used to it after doing it for a week. Joe was hardly breathing heavily when he got lo Ihe refectory. He grunted good mornings as he elbowed his way lo his place at a table with seven other hungry hombres and promptly drove right through the center of a bowl of what-is-it-Lou? He look down his share of the skyscraper of thick, half-burned, unbuffered toast, gulped a glass of milk, stuffed some mushy, scrambled eggs into his gullet, tackled a new skyscraper of toast. No Talking at Meals, Might Go Hungry. Nobody talked during the meal. You can't talk when your mouth's full, and you can't stop when you're hungry. The other fellows might beat you lo that last piece of toast. Joe munched on his last mouthful as he limped over to the gym to rassle into last year's uniform. The new outfits, he heard, will have all blue jers- ics. That'll be better. Dolly never could see his number after the first quarter. Joe was the last out on the field. They weren't going to do any scrimmaging but he had to have that knee taped up with yards and yards of adhesive. . . . "Can't take any chances even though you're only trying to block a couple of sacks of sand," Coach always said. "We've lost lots of men for the whole season just because Ihey didn't fit themselves out right for Iraining." When Joe got out to the field the boys were done with those crazy calisthenics and were all at work. Over in the far corner, the line coach had his crew huffing and shoving against a contraption that looked like a stunted starting stall for race horses. Gives them leg drive . . . and they sure need it, thought Joe, from the way they opened holes last year. The backs were off to another side, taking passes from a bored center, faking end runs, then cutting back real sharp and running head-on into what looked like padded barroom doors.

That's Pistolas diving between a fellow Lions' Ices. ; and did a broken field hop-skip-ancl- jump for a few yards. 'It's supposed to teach them to keep their eyes open when they crack the line. If you close your eyes running, into those doors head clown you'll run smackdab into the canvas sack on the other side. . . . "You just gotta keep your eyes open," the Old Man was saying. "If you hit that line with your peepers shut tight you won't see those little openings that crop up here and here." Some of tho boys were working on the tackling dummy.' Bedraggled and tattered, it looked like a condemned scarecrow as it swung from the scaffold suspended by a pulley and weight arrangement. You have to hit the danged thing hard and true to bring it down to the sand pit with you. The ends were running down under punts in the center of Hie field. The O'ld Man is a stickler on timing those punts. Can't have a kicker gel off a panicky punt wilh Ihe ends hardly under way.

'slipped out of tho sweaty, heavy suits. put on the uniform shorts, and ambled down to the refectory. Soup, a chunk of roast beef, a baked potato, a pile of sandy spinach, some fruit, and more milk. Joe was drowsy \v"ien he got up and he wont out by the gymnasium and lay down on the lawn in the shade and was snoozing off when it was time to go out on the field again. They spent most of the time in the hot sun in dummy scrimmage against a wooden scaffold from which suspended heavy bays like so may opposing linemen. They use this to work out formations that they employ later in scrimmage. The inter-squad scrimmage was rough—as rough as a regular game, and tougher 'cause you weren't quite ready for that sort of stuff. But it felt kind of good, at that, to smash into something human instead of bumping up against those dam' bags, and hopping back and forth through those auto tires, and running through those tiresome formations. A couple of the fellows had scratches and here and there was a dark-blue eye at supper. Some of the boys glared lit one another. Hot sun, hot scrimmage, hot tempers.

Pcbs Pini;:Ii Strong CHATTANOOGA, Tenn—<#>)—Memphis robbed Little Rock's new champions of a Southern Association record Sunday. The Chicks, whom Doc Prothro managed to the 1930 championship, defeated Chattanooga twice to reduce Little Rock's final margin to nine games. Manager Prothro's Travelers made a last-minute stab at cracking the record for the biggest lead by coming from behind to beat-Atlanta. A double victory for Chattanooga would have left the new champs 11 games ahead of Memphis. Birmingham's record of a lOVa game margin over Little Rock was established in 1931. The Travelers' nine-game edge is the third largest in history of the 37-year- old Southern Circuit. New Orleans beat Montgomery by 10 games in 1905 and Nashville finished nine in from of New Orleans in 191G. More than 150 newspapers in Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi are being used by the Lion Oil Refining Company in its fall advertising campaign, one of the largest in the history of the company, according to announcement from the general offices at El Dorado, Ark., where the refining plant is located. The new campaign, which starls Sep- temper 16, will feature Lion Knix- Knox gasoline and Lion Naturalube Motor Oil, Lion's newest product which was introduced to the public in an extensive campaign several months ago. alter R. Haun, advertising manager, was high in his praise of newspaper advertising which was used as the primary advertising medium when the new oil was frisl placed on the market. Marketing Expands The Lion Oil Refining Company has carried on an energetic expansion of its marketing facilities over that section of the South it serves. Since the first of the year bulk plans and service .stations have been palved in several of the metropolitan areas in the mid- soutli, including Jackson and Vicksburg, Mississippi and Nashville, Tenn. In addition to bulk plants and retail outlets in metropolitan areas, many gaps have been filled by placing bulk plants in smaller communities in many sections of Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee and Alabama, according to A. F. Reed, vice president and head of the .vales division and F. M. Rider, manager of station sales. Now Production Sources The production operations and manufacturing facilities of the Lion Gil Refining Companay have likewise shown a rapid growth this year. With production from tile new-found Shuler field, near El Dorado, and the acquisition of the producing properties of the E. L. Smith Oil Company in East Texas, Lion's source of crude oil has been greatly increased. In recent months the daily crude throughout capacity of the refinery has been increased TiU per cent. Sales Territory Added In addition to the territory seived by the tank car sales division with asphalt ami light oils, which includes the Southeast. Southwest. Central and Middle-western states, Lion has increased its tank car shipments of refined lubricating oils until now Lion Naturalube is sold in every section of the United Slates exeept the New England stales, where freight rates are prohibitive. In discussing the growth of the Lion Oil Refining Company. Col. T. H. Barton, president, said: "It is gratifying to know that in the period of seven years, Lion has won a place at the top in sales throughout Arkansas and thai part of the South where Lion products are sold. The .steadily increasing sale of Lion products indicates the willingness of people in Arkansas and throughout the South to accept products made at home. It is conceivable, as this spirit prevails, Arkansas and the South will soon enjoy an era of prospeiity unequalled in the history of our country."
