fniuT, I.>'(.', 1987 HOPE-'StAH, HOPE, ARKANSAS THE SPO] Star Dust By LEONARD ELLIS Tlltt OK QUKKN SLANT ll was Jim Farley wlio predicted that the Democrats would cnrry every stale except Maine niul Vermont—but it Wii.s E. H. Smith, who writes Oridst in (he Do Queen Daily Citizen, who predicted Hint the Leopards would win over the Bobcats last year. As most every one knows both predictions rtime true. Another year has rolled around since the last mooting of the Leopards find the Bobcnts— so hero is the slant token by (iridsl this year: "Now if Hopes acquires n notion bc- cnusc the Leopards lost to Nashville that tin? Bolxrnt.s nre going to huve easy sailing over here Thursday night, why that will be just dandy—for the Leopards. "It is recalled thnt Gridsl admonished the Hobfals and their coach lust year that they were making n (previous mistake to pooh-pooh the Leopards on the biisi.s of an admittedly unimpressive record. The Leopards had been di-fwiled 25 to 0 by Niishville, and Hope >>:id defeated Nashville 31 to 6. But, in fatherly manner, we cnutioned the Bobcats against uvcrconfidencc, warning them that the Lcopiirds were much better than they looked on paper. We advised them candidly that the Leopards had no desire to .slip up on the Uobcnts, but that they were cumiiiR to Hope to win a footbnll game, and they wanted the Bobcats to be at their best. "We are not making any predictions concerning the outcome of the game Thursday night, but we do (ake occasion afi'im to admonish (he Do bents tliat do|x.* cannol be relied upon, particularly where the LeuptiiiU are concerned. "We would have the Bobcats understand that the Luojxirds are no less determined and no less confident of Uicir ability to lake Hope's measure this year than they were last year, and for Hope to treat them lightly—to como over here ex|>vdinK to stage a Hornan holiday or even to win by a close score without extending themselves to the limit— would be a fatal mistake." DeQueen Prepares for Record Crowd Thursday * He Flies Through the Air From the appearance of End Percy Ramsey, one would think that he already has been in a Leopard scrap at De Queen. Ramsey had the misfortune of severely slashing his lip when he run iiito a bnrlx'd wire fence in football practice Tuesday afternoon. Ramsey was stretching for a long pass when tlw accident occurred. Although the wound rwtuired medical attention, Ramsey is expected to be,, in the lineup against De Queen Thursday night. . As this was being written at 10 a. m. Wednesday there had boon no definite arraiiReinents fur a special train th Dr Queen as far as we could loam. We have had many inquiries about a Bobcat Special since it was suggested Monday in this column—and a lot of amens to support the move. Hut—mi action.

The Henderson team is busy Retting ready to meet Arkansas Tech here Friday afternoon. "While the Roddies' 18 to 0 victory over the Texarknna college team here last Friday was somewhat 'of a surprise and showed the Henderson team to be Ijctter than expected, the conches credited some of the Reddio success to Texarkana's bo- !. slow and off form. There are no less than seven freshmen in the active squad and this inexperience hurls results severely. In tho place of the veteran Kennedy, Parker, n freshman, is plnying at end. He plnyivl rnthcr well against the Texarkana tenm i and scored one of the throe touchdowns. The Henderson backfield of Phillips, Miller Turner and Vnrnadu come up to expectations. Tech is rated as far above the Tex- nrkana team and the Reddies hope to hold the score low by using the same fighting spirit thai characterized their performance lust Friday.

The players escaped injuries and will be in good condition for the Murray Stnto team of Kentucky here Friday night, unless scrimmages cause casualties. Tile Tigers are in for a lot of hard work straightening out kinks which have prevented them from functioning very well this season.

After seven lean years, the Dixie pennant flew again here Tuesday night for the seventh time since the baseball classic of the Southland started back in 1920. Never in serious trouble Selwny held the Travelers nt bay while his mates pecked away In the early innings and finally exploded with a four run outburst in the seventh Unit .settled matters. It was Selwuy's second shutout of the series. He blanked the Travelers on their home lot in the second gnmc. 3-0. Bob Porter, starting Traveler pitcher, weathered the first four innings but weakened and was relieved in favor of a pinch hitter in the sixth. Fort Worth started scoring in the second frame on Moore's walk, Greenberg's sacrifice and McLeod's blazing single to left. They tacked on another in the fifth when Jackson was hit by a pitched ball, forced out by Selway and Sheeley popped a double against the left field wall. Selwny stopped at third and was finally forced nt the plate but Stebbins single punched Shelley across. Moore opened the sixth with a rousing triple to right and crime in on Mallon's fly to center. Two more hurlers took tho hill for Little Rock in a crazy seventh thnt saw four Cat tollies drift across. Kola Sharp relieved Porter and immediately walked Jackson. Selway bumped a single into left and Sheeley singled to right, loading tho bases. McDowell walked, forcing in Jackson. Lee Rogers took the hill. Stebbins forced Selway at the plate but Moore was hit by a pitched ball, forcing in Sheeley. Grec'nberg forced McDowell at the plate but Mallon's one baser scored Stebbins and Moore. Jackson opened the eighth innocently enough by fouling out to Tabor but Selway went all tho way to second- when Freddie Tauby dropped his 'fly ball. Shelley's single sent his across and the husky ccntcrfieldcr scored himself when Stebbins beat out an infield tap and Catcher Coble threw badly to first trying to get him.

NAPSACK FADES BACK To LEFT AND PASSES i By ART KRENZ NEA Service Sports Writer A lateral off a forward play netted the University of Tulsa a 57-yard gain and an all-important touchdown in their 19-7 victory over the Sb'oncrs of the University of Oklahoma. Trailing 7 to 6 in the third quarter and in possession of the ball on its own -13-yard line, tho Golden Hurricane of Tulsn went into a single wing- hack formation with the ends split. Sophomore Tommy Thompson, hailed as another Slingin' Sam Baugh by many Southwest fans, took the ball from center, faded to the loft, and heaved a long pass to Left End Curly Hays, who had raced clirectliy down- field. Jack Baer, Oklahoma fullback, almost intercepted the pass on his 25- yard line, but Hays took the ball from between his arms and dashed to the 15-yard line where, just as he was tackled by Webber Merrell, Oklahoma sUety, he lateruled to Buster Baze, Tulsa right end, who was following tho play. Baze, untouched, ran the remaining distance for the score that put Tulsa ahead for good. When the ball was snapped back to Thompson, the Tulsa guards pulled ou of line—the left guard blocking the Oklahoma right tackle, the right guarc handling the left tackle. Sam Brotton Tulsa fullback, blotted out the Soone left end, and Quarterback Tudo Jones took care of the right end. Paul Rogers, playing left wingback, charged on downfield as a potential pass receiver. STORIES (N LAST GAP IN GLOBE GPCLING- L DULED to span the Atlantic on regular mail and passenger flights beginning this fall, two great flying boats of Pan American Airways and Britain's Imperial Airways jyve ushered in a new era of transportation and closed the last great gap in round-the- world flight. These boats, the Pan American Clipper and the British Caledonia, completed a series of successful summer survey flights without a hitch. The big Sikorsky clipper first flew from Port Washington, N V., to Botwood, Nesvfoundland, thence took off across the Atlantic for Foynes, Ireland. She landed 12 hours and 30 minutes after departure from Botwood. At the same time Britain's Caledonia spanned the Atlantic, flying down from Botwood to Montreal, thence to Port Washington. Meanwhile, the Clipper had shuttled on to Southampton and the first ocean to be crossed by airplane hud become the last to be spanned in commercial air service. Take- oil and landing points for these flights are shown on a Newfoundland map stamp of 1928 and an Irish map stamp of 1923. P.i:i7. SKA Sorvlcr. Inc.) Jock Sutherland Doesn't Fear That His Team Will Become Overconfident University of Pittsburgh Coach Is Not Worrying Because Team Is the Defending Champion of Rose Bowl—Too Many Fights for Positions on Team NEXT. Who invented the $lra«ge little l>»t(Jc«hip Monitor? 34) By HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NEA Service PITTSBURGH—Guiding n defending Rose Bowl champion is n new experience for Dr. John Bain Sutherland nfter 18 years as head coach of o major college football team, 13 of them spent at the University of Pittsburgh, where his clubs have lost only 18 games. Jock Sutherland missed three times at Pasadena but twice—in 1928 and 1933—the tall Scotsman brought his array back near the top after faking wallopings on the golden slope. Sutherland had only 11 worthwhile players in 1928, yet only 13 points were scored against the Panthers. With better material in 1933, the same number of points were registered by rivals, r.ncl only one game was lost—to mighty Minnesota, 7-3. Now, with a Bowl winner, and 23 lettermen, including eight who started against Washington, Sutherland is on the spot marked X. Well-meaning, but over-zealous alumni believe that Pitt can't lose this trip. But those closest to Pitt, the .silent doctor's stuff and Panther athletic jfficiuls will not be surprised if, somewhere and somehow, the boys manage to kick one. And there will be no censure if it happens. Tho setup appears altogether too good. Sutherland is not worrying (and he's a Grade A worrier) about the lads easing up because of their present apparent exalted position. There aru still too many fights for position to allow a letdown by any player. Sutherland's Assistants Get Other Positions Exactly three have starting assignments cinched. They are the phenomenal Marshall Goldberg at left halfback, Bill Daddio at left end, and Tony Matisi at left tackle. The bailies lor starting jobs elsewhere' .should be slightly more than spirited. Sutherland's staff is changed. The Pasadena victory opened posts for several of his veteran assistants who were anxious to get out for themselves after years at the knee of the muster technician. Bill Kern and Dr. Eddie Baker went to Carnegie Tech. Eddie Hirshbcrg departed for Dartmouth. Three Pill men, with high school and college coaching experience, returned to replace them. They are Josh Williams, Alex Fox, and Eddie Schultz. Sutherland himself hasn't changed a lot. Hu still feels yood because he was able to demonstrate that the running game still is the backbone of football. He had preached this doctrine for years. Pitt's G-0 victory last year over passing Ohio State and the Panthers' record bore him out, with the smashing defeat of Washington in the Rose Bowl spotlighting ihe confirmation of his theory. Rival coaches had best not figure on stopping Pitt on land only this autumn, however. Sutherland has tak- en to the air before. He is likely to again, and has the tossers at hand. No football man can build an offense any better than the taciturn Sutherland. Pitt Schedule Tough, but Jock Is, Too Perhaps Sutherland can school his sophomores during this fall's engagements, but he'll have to be careful. Duquesne won a year ago, and is more formidable this time. Fordham, after two scoreless ties, gels Pitt in New York on the fourth Saturday, the same day on which the Panthers have lost their only four games in four years—to Minnesota twice, Notre Dame, and Duquesne. Wisconsin no longer is a setup, with Harry Stuhldreher better established. Carnegie Tech, under Kern, will be tougher than usual.
