' ) The < Little Rock Tigers- may find themselves in as close a battle as last year's game'when-they open with the Catholic High Rockets in the high School stadium. Only a last quarter safety netted ihe Tigers a 15-to-U victory last year. North Little Rock, under its new coach, Bob Cowan, entertains the Beebe Badgers in another capital city gridiron feature at Wildcat Field. Both of the Greater Little Rock tilts are night attractions. ; Two features among conference and non-member teams are the Smack- ttver-Camden clash at Camden, and the Van Buren-Fort Smith tangle at Fort Smith. Both games are highly important sectional engagements. Pine Bluffs always powerful Zebras go up against the McGehee Owls on the former's gridiron, while Coach Russell Charles sends his Fordyce Red- bugs against Norphlet. Gfcark will play at Russellville. Forrest City goes to Greenwood, Miss., and Marianna runs up against the Jonesboro Golden Hurricane at Jonesboro. • Outside the conference, Paragould Meks its second straight victory in a Came with Corning, while Paris also goes after No. 2 in a tilt at Fayetteville.

Japan Now Largest (Continued from Page One) vestment one day might be an ex-investment tomorrow. When the Boxer rebellion brought that problem to a head, the foreigners tried to achieve a smooth mixture of Chinese and foreign investments by pouring in the ingredient known as extraterritoriality. That means a foreigner may enjoy the protection of the laws of his homeland in another country. Adds Up to Trouble Extraterritoriality couldn't happen in the United States, but if it could, it would work like this: New York City's financial districl would be figuratively roped off, anc labelled "international settlement." The rest of the nations of the world would take charge of the area, operate it under their own laws and maintain their own courts. Extraterritoriality—and certain treaties by which China accepts responsibility for protecting foreign investments in railways and other properties cdntrolled by the government— have made Shanghai the "pearl of the Orient." A Western Way Japan, like the western nations, has played these devices for all they are worth, and still her investors in China encounter the active resistance of the Chinese and the passive resistance of trade rivals. Rice Team Faces Tough (irid Card Owls' Starting Line Powerful But Reserves Lack Experience HOUSTON, Texas.—(A 5 )—They've got something at Rice Institute this year —something only a bold schedule could stump. Coach Jimmie Kitts, whose Owls lost too many hairline decisions last year for a good club, doesn't know whether to grin over a grand squad or mumble over a murderous schedule. He does both. Coach Kitts spoke with wisdom there. Ten times they will play with dynamite, opening Ofctober 2 against Oklahoma and then challenging, on successive week-ends, Louisiana State, Tulsa, Texas, Auburn, Arkansas, Texas A. and M., Texas Christian, Baylor and Southern Methodist. "Put those ten games in a hat, shuffle them, draw them out one at a time and you couldn't improve any date on the schedule," Kitts said. His predicate laid, Kitts got down ;o the subject—his eleven. Well equipped with a starting lin- up, Kitts considers his reserves, consisting in the main of sophomores, potentially fine but inexperienced. Two ends who sat with injuries on the sidelines through most of the 1936 m, Jim Nace,'195, and Walter Wiliams, 185, should get the nod in a junch of nine wingmen. Kitts described Nance, a bad knee victim of ast year, as "a boy as good as any the conference has seen in years." Wiliams broke his collarbone in mid-season last fall but is back now as the speediest and most aggressive of the lot. In reserve he has veterans Steen, Klindworth and Steakley and brilliant sophomore prospects in Hager, Robb, Sanger and Brannon. Almost wide open is the scramble for tackles with veterans Art Hughes and Jess Hines, a couple of fast-moving 200-pounders, only a nose ahead of two sophomore giants, 212-pound J. R. Green, stormy captain of the freshmen last year, and 215-pound Ed Singletary. A third soph, Reinhart Stanzel, 205, will do more playing than bench warming. •Guards are pletiful with Capt. Charlie Moore, steady and hard working, at one post and Henry Stern, a senior veteran; Mat Landry, only 175 pounds but "very classy," and two "sophomores who just can't be kept out of there," Ross McBrayer and Bill Haner, also handy. Two junior centers, Herman price and Harry Arthur, must hustle to beat off three exceptionally good sophs, Howell Husbands, Sam Flowers and Kenneth Whitlow. Kitts backf jeld 'could easly line up with Paul Hancock as the blocking back; Red Vickers in the tailback slot; loping Johnny Neece at right half and Jake Schuenle at fullback—But there are countless other combinations, and all of them potent. In the tilback crop, there is Ernie Lain, the soph passer (and very good, blocker, kicker and defensive giant; Bill Brandon, fine punter and good passer, and Doug (Scat) Sullivan, hurt last year but ready now. Behind Neece there is Ollie Cordill, the west Texas soph who will show his ball-carrying stuff aplenty; Bob Brandon and Dan Coffee. The fullback crops rounds out with Floyd Mechler, shifted from a blocking back; Bryce Parker, very fast, and Earl Glassie, a sophomore 200-pounder who is "big, loose and potentially powerful." Co-Captains of Razorback Team Playoff Resumed in Southern Loop Travelers at New Orleans, Rogers or Humphries to Pitch By the Associated Press The Southern Association's five game play-off series will be resumed Friday with Memphis, Atlanta, New Orleans and Little Rock each holding a loss and a victory. The teams were idle Thursday as they shifted ball parks. Atlanta plans to use Emil (Dutch) FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.—Co-captains of the 1937 University of Arkansas Razorbacks are the two players who formed one of the greatest forward passing combinations in, the nation in last year's Arkansas drive toward the Southwest Conference championship. Jack Robbins of Little Rock, veteran quarterback, and Jim Benton .of Fordyce, senior end, are the players who will share the captaincy this year. Robbins has been a star passer ever since he broke into the lineup in his sophomore year and completed 95 forward passes for a total gain of 1,219 yards. Last year, when he missed three games because .of injuries, he completed 54 passes for 554 yards. He has clone most of the Razorbacks' punting during the past two seasons and averaged 7 yards every time he ran the ball. Benton, also playing his third and last season of college football, promises to rank with the greatest Arkansas wirlgrhen of all time. Last year he was on' the receiving end of 35 successful forward passes, his completions accounting for 489 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively this 6-foot 4-inch wingmah leaves nothing to be desired. Both Robbins ^nd Benton are seniors, the former in the college of education and the latter in the college of arts and sciences. Both were unanimous choices for the mythical All- Southwest Conference last year. And both were regulars on the Razorback varsity basketball team that went to the Olympic finals in New York City. Leonard against Memphis in Atlanta Friday. The Pelicans take on Little Rock three in a row at New Orleans which the dopesters say is favorable to the Pelicans. Bi Del Wetherall has ben nominated by Billy Southworth to take the mound against the Crackers but Doc Prothro was undecided whether to start Lee Rogers or Byron Humphreys. The Pels were nlso on the deepficlcl fence about whether or not to start Bill Perrin or Sig Jakucki. Innocent bystanders in North China are said to be considering enlistment in the regular armies to escape the torrid shollfire in the current war. Mississippi mules are threatened with sleeping sickness. Missouri will offer all the knowledge gained in its long experience. An old commodity flooding the world market: War. And each package labeled as usual, "Made in Jnpnn." Headline says Vandenburg urges firmer neutrality. Same principle as rounding off a square circle? Geologists are the only people assured of a respectable place in society despite a life of faultfinding. France has nationalized the railroads, and may balance the budget by direct sale of Sunday magazine stories about murder mysteries on the midnight express. The duel the world is waiting for will be between two waiters, one of them choosing a table knife and the Lumberjacks Play Last Game Sunday Will Oppose Okay Here; Elliot and Pate to Pitch The season's final baseball game will be played here Sunday when the Williams Lumber company team meets Okay at 3:30 p. m. at Fair Pork. Manager Lloyd Coop said that Blackie Elliott and Ralph Pate would probably be the opposing pitchers, giving promise of a mound duel between two righthanded flingers. Elliott will hurl for the Lumberjacks. Although not definitely decided Friday morning, Pate more than likely will be in the box for Okay. It WHS a known fact that Pate was being sought for duty by the Cementers. Pate has pitched in two leagues this season, hurling for Monroe, La., Texarkana and Longview. Last Sunday he was on the mound for Hope, hurling the Lumberjacks to a 4 to 3 decision over Bosicr City. Pate struck out 15.

Elm? of Black came from Representative O'Neil (Dem., N. J.) who said in Newark, N. J., that he was one of the congressmen canvassed by Chairman O'Connor (Dem., N. Y.) of the House Rules Committee as to their attitude toward such action. O'Neil .said he had telegraphed O'Connor: "If Mr. Justice Black was a member of the Klan when nominated and confirmed his silence constituted a moral fraud upon the American people. Should he further refuse to explain his present relation with that order ir refuse to repudiate its principles and purposes, I anticipate that the president of the United States will request his resignation. Should Justice Black refuse, I would vote to impeach him." Opposed If He's In Klan Senator George L. Radcliffe, Maryland Democrat, joined the growing list of senators asserting they would not have voted to confirm Black's appointment had they known he was a member of the Klan. An ardent New Dealer and personal friend of the president, Radcliffe asserted that anyone joining an organization as "obnoxious" as the Klan would be "unfit to sit on the supreme bench of the United States.'' On the other hand. Senator Reynolds (Dem., N. C.) described opposition to Black as " alot of spite and political propaganda." Reynolds said he knew nothing of the organizations to which Black belonged. "I am confident he will discharge the duties imposed upon him by the Supreme Court with credit to himself and satisfaction to iho American people," he added. 71k NATIONAL LEAGUE New York 82 52 .612 Chicago 80 57 .584 St. Louis 74 63 .540 Pittsburgh 72 65 .526 Boston 69 68 .504 Brooklyn 61 76 .445 Philadelphia 54 82 .397 Cincinnati 53 82 .393 Thursday's Results New York 3, Pittsburgh 0.
