J^uesday, September 28, 1937 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS PAGE mt THE Star Dust By LEONARD ELLIS PICKING THE PORKEKS The University of Arkansas Razorbacks, who open their Southwest Conference season this Saturday at Fny- etteville against Texas Christian University, will defeat the Horned Frogs, 13 to 7—and then will go on through the season to upset tradition and become the first Southwest Conference champion to repeat. Jack Robbing of the Razorbacks will be an almost unanimous All-America quarterback. They'll compare the passing Porker t o the great Sammy Baugh, who has ended his college eligibility. That's the opinion of Richard Mccann, NBA Service Sports Writer. The NEA service supplies approximately 700 newspapers with reading and picture material from coast to coast. It's a nice piece of publicity for Arkansas, now considered among the leading major football teams of the United States. Smackoyer^uckarogsjVext Opponents^ l"k 1 TV ••! a —— _ . Porkers Drill for Southwest Opener More Protection for Pasp- ers Is Asked by Coach Thomsen TEXAS FANS SATISFIED Reports from the campus of University of Texas say that Texas football followers are satisfied with their coach for the first time since 1893. The new coach there is Dana X. Bible, a good football coach, a master diplomat and the possessor of a "name" potent enough to command a 10-year contract at a top salary. Texas is known as the "graveyard of coaches." Texas coaches were here today, gone tomorrow—but not up. No University of Texas football coach ever possessed to a better job. Usually they have dropped out of the game altogether, as has Jack Chevigny, latest victim of the wolves, who traded grid togs for a lawyer's togs. Bible, in .starting this year's campaign, has 13 lettermcn, only a few of them potential stars, and several rather promising sophomores. With double-tough clubs like Arkansas, Texas Aggies, Texas Christian, South- ;ern Methodist and Rice, a coach needs . more than that. He needs sympathy and a handful of miracles. Bible is not exactly new in the Southwest Conference. It was something like 10 years ago that he established a great reputation at Texas A. & M. This coming Saturday Bible takes his team to Baton Rouge to meet L. S. U. Its needless to say the "Eyes of Texas" will be upon him. FOUR CONFERENCE GAMES Four games will be played this week-end in the Big 15 Arkansas High School Conference. The schedule follows: Blytheville vs, North Little Rock at Blytlievillo. '* Forrest City vs. Russellville at Forrest City. El Dorado vs. Benlon at El Dorado Pine Bluff vs. Fort Smith at Pine Bluff. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.- (IP) -Coach Fred C. Thomsen insisted Monday upon more efficient tackling and blocking by his University of Arkansa Ruzorbacks when they tangle with Texas Christian here Saturday in their Southwest Conference opener. He emphasized tlie finer points of defense, demanding from protection for his red and white passers and punters against the Frogs than displayed against the Central Oklahoma Brcnchs last week-end. The Bronchos were beaten 25-0 but considering the difcrence in weight they gave an excellent account of themselves, hodling the Porkers to 250 yards of gains both in the air and on the ground. Against major opponents last fall Arkansas often made around 200 yards in the air alone. The TCU eleven practiced on a large number of pass plays for the Ohio State game last week-end and the majority were not even used once be cause of the rain. The big question is: Can Dave; O'Brien compete with Jack Robbiiv and Dwight Sloan? The Frog's Sam my Baugh did in 1935 and IS.'iG anc then some, but Baugh has finished hit college eligibility. Arkansas lost to the Christian las fall at Fort Worth 18 to M, "but went on to win five straight conference victories and the title. If the Porkers win they will be verj much in the southwest race that promises to be close and hard fought. The Ra/.orbacks held a longer than usual Monday drill against (he freshman squad and all phases of both offense and defense were outlined, with the stress on the latter as Arkansas already is considered a dangerous scoring aggregation. A Texas scout made this comment alter the opening game against the Bronchos: "I couldn't honestly say that the Raxorback-s arc better this year, but it will tak two or more touchdowns in my opinion to beat them."

Tlie Bobcats immediate concern is the Smackover B a mo . Th- DeQueen, Jonesboro and Nashville games will be played when they get here. Coach Hammons is playing the yames by the Week—and not by the season. • He figures that tlie Buckaroos are going to he tough. They always have been, recent seasons show. Competition between the Buckaroos and Bob- cal.s started in the fall of 1835. That season the Buckaroos put up a stiff battle and held Hope to a 20 to B score Last .season Coach Allen Berry' team was even tougher. The Buckaroo. put up a great battle—but lost by small score of 7 to 0. They will conn here Ihis Friday night to avenge ; two-year defeat. We predict a hare • game. _ About tlie best "dupe" to consider-, \t yon consider "dope"—is the result of the Cainileii-Smackover game (hi season that ended in Camden's favor 19 to 0. A special train will bring the team anil Smackover fans to Hope. Unknown Fever Strikes Citizens of Australia -SYDNEY.
