Monday, September 20, 1937 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS THE Bobcats to Meet Strong Byrd High Team Here I , _____ d7 Toughest Game of Season Expected Interpretation of New Rules New $20,000 Stadium to Be Dedicated—Special Train Here Planned Hope High School footbnll team takes on un out-of-stute opponent here Friday night when the town clashes! with Byrd High School of Shreveport,, many times champions of Louisiana, i The game is looked upon here as one I of the. toughest, if not the .strongest, j on the Bobcat schedule. Radio reports from Shreveport say it will be a crucial contest for the Yellow Jackets. Byrd High coaches have scouted the Bobcats twice this season, two coaches and most of the Byrd team coming here for Hope's opening game with Horatio two weeks ago. Scouts were also here last Friday when Hope defeated Benton, 20 to 0. It will be the second game of the season for Byrd, having defeated Horatio at Shreveport last Friday night, 49 to 6. Hope won over Horatio, 48 to 0. Reports from Shroveporl said . that four teams-, 44 players, saw action against Horatio, the reserves playing most of the game. The Yellow Jackets maintained an even scoring pace, marking up 13 points in the opening quarter and 12 each in the following three periods. Tentative plans call for a special train over the L. & A. railroad with a large delegation of high school students and boosters of the Shrt've]x>rt club. Hope's new §20,000 athletic stadium will be dedicated the night of the Shreveport game. Mayor Albert Graves will officially welcome the visitors here and act as master of ceremonies. Talks will be made by Coach Foy Hammons and the visiting Louisiana coach. The complete program will be announced probably Tuesday or Wednesday. The season's largest crowd is expected. Besides a big Shreveport delegation, fans are expected here from ....several southwest Arkansas towns. A ^packed stadium is expected. • Coach Hammons announced that | jonly a few reserve seats remain on the ''. west side of the field. They are lo. cated in the middle section near the •press box. They can be purchased at reduced prices, §1 for the balance of ' the season. If interested, contact Roy Anderson. The remaining box seats on the west side are selling at $3 per box for the balance of the season. Coach Hammons said Monday that his team came out of the Benton game "skinned up and bruised" but with no serious injuries. Percy Ramsey, veteran left end who saw action only in the half of the Benton encounter, is expected to be in shape for the Byrd - game. Barring injuries this week all other players are expected to be in condition. Ccach Hammons planned dummy scrimmage and some new scoring plays for drill sessions eraly this week.

TEXAS LEAGUE Pete Brown Takes Charge of Arena Succeeds Bert Manldin as Promoter—First Fight Tuesday Night Byron Pete Brown, former Hope High School athlete, has assumed the duties of promoter and matchmaker at the South Walnut Street Arena, succeeding Bert Mauldin wh ohas promoted athletic shows here the past three years. Brown announced he would continue to fetaure the weekly amateur fight programs. In the future Brown will handle all matches and will be in complete charge. Amateur fighters should contact Brown instead of Mauldin if they desire to fight. Brown's first fight program will be held this Tuesday night, featuring a return bout between Pinkie Carrigan and George Murray of Spring Hill. After a run of five consecutive knockouts, Carrigan was held to a draw by the Spring Hill battler last week. Both boys have asked for a return fight. Both have been working hard and are in condition.

Largely because it will be the same game the boys played last year. Players, coaches, officials, and fans have been spared the necessity of reading up on new rules. They'll know what's what from the beginning. The game right now is nicely balanced. If there is an edge, it goes to the offense. That is as it should be. Power, speed, and deception, with a generous amount of skill, are demanded by the sport as it stands today. I am convinced that the rules committee was wise in not heeding the near-hysteria at the end of last season regarding proposed rules changes on forward pass interference. Ihe problem was considered at length. But going over it, front and back, up and down, the rules makers could find nothing to put into words that would solve the problem. I am confident, however, that good will grow out of all the talk that followed last year's big games. The significance of some of last year's major game decisions—and the subsequent heated discussions by fans, writers, and everyone else—will have the effect of making officials more careful, perhaps a bit more deliberate. Sometimes, I believe, a decision has been made too quickly. A second thought and an open mind that will not call interference unless there has been a deliberate attempt by the defensive or offensive player to interfere will go a lon,g way toward clearing up the perplexities of the play. I expect to see officials more conscious this year than ever before of the fact that the infraction is not necessarily and invariably the fault of a defensive player. Too often officials have failed to realize that the offensive player, going down under a pass, .674 can a ) so i n t er f L , rc w m-, H IL . defense.

Although nearly all spices used in this country are imported from Europe and the Orient, most of them are ground in modern mills in this country. cut of bounds on the first kick is a good one. Hereafter the ball will be put in play on the receiving team's 35- yard line or at a point 10 yards in from where it crosses the sideline. This is bound to speed up the game. Too often in recent years, teams have kicked from the sideline, with the ball going out of bounds to necessitate the anticlimax of a second effort. Now, if they are going to kick from the sideline, they'll either have to kick ac- Okay 001 000 001—2 Hope 014 000 22x—9 curately or give the ball to the rivals on the 35-yard stripe. This may give the receiving team a little edge, but the result will be more care in kicking off and more preparation for this play, which is one of the most thrilling and interesting in football. It moans better kicking and any trend toward better kicking in football helps the game. The committee has moved in the Lions' Lucky Luckner Eager U. S.

Princeton, Harvard, Columbia, but you can see from the sign above the archway, a la Christmas shoppers' hint, just what the boys are thinking of already. Color In the Red Sox Runs BOSTON—(NBA)—Buck Newsom, as usual, was boasting. "I got the color of this team," said the Boston Red Sox right-hander. "Yeach," said Second Baseman John Kroner of the Cleveland Indians, "you got the color—but we got the runs." direction of a more exact, less fluky game by ruling that a free ball may not be kicked or kicked at, intentionally or otherwise. Larry Kelley's accidental bcoting of the ball in the attempt to recover a fumbled punt against Navy last fall probably had a lot to do with the adoption of this rule. When Kelley finally recovered the ball, it was on Navy's two-yard line, instead of on about the 2Q, where he hud kicked it. Yale scored as a result and won the game. In that particular case, I have no doubt that the kick was accidental. However, if no action had been taken -by the rules committee, this stunt might have become too frequent to be called accidental. Now, with loss of the ball as a penalty if the foul occurs on the field of play, the boys will take care to avoid such accidents. Football is a great game as it stands today. It is based on a system of checks and balances that makes its genei-al- ship and execution a great test of offensive and defensive skill. This year's minor changes in rules, both simple and understood, will improve that balance still further. The new attitude of officials on pass interference, will give the defensive player a bit more of a show than he has had sometimes in the past. As they stand today, the rules seem to me to have reached almost their ultimate state, at least until some new, unlocked-fcr element comes into the game. It's such a great game today that 1 wonder sometimes what the old-timers mean when they talk about the "good old days."

Texas Christian Has 16 Lettermen Fort Worth Universitj' to Open Season Against Ohio State 'FORT WORTH, Texas.—(XP)—Sixteen lettermen are bustling around at Texas Christian practice but Coach Loo (Dutch.) Meyer still isn't satisfied. He needs more experienced men he insists. "My club could use more experience," wept the little master of the open game. "It's the biggest problem I'm facing. Twelve of my 1G lettermen are juniors—just won their supers for the first time last year." The fact that he will have a 212- pound average line and fairly capable successor to Sammy Baugh somewhat eases Meyer's mind. His line, he figures, will be among the best in the league and little Davcy O'Brien, 147- pound pass heaver, kicker and twisting runner, will come through "and make a great, record." Absence of Baugh and his throwing arm vvill not retard the Horned Frog aerial "game, Meyer said. O'Brien, who filled in during Baugh's few absences last season, and Spud Taylor, former Breckenridge high school phenojn, nave shown in heavy drilling for the opener against Ohio SUUo on September 25 that they can fill the bill.
