;1 r Tuesday, October12,_1937 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Southern Teams Best in Nation Football in Dixie Provides Plenty of Thrills Says Wade By DANA X. B1HLE University iif TCMIS Couch WrilU'H for NKA Service Hack once again in (he Inud of the forward pass and the home (if "rtiit- I.It-dawk'," which wo left eight years IIRO, we find oiirselve.s nftht in the middle of about the hottest kettle of wnlur we have stepped into during 2.1 ."enson.'i of roll«.-|?e coaching. We left the Southwest Conference when toauu; like Arkansas. Hire, and Texas Christian wen.' merely names on the .schedule. We return ID find Arkansas the defending champion, Kice ami T. C. U. hut contenders, and each of the four rcm.iinini! outfits— Southern Mi-tliodist. Texas A. & M.. Baylor and Texa.s-as <oui>h as a hoot and twice as hard to handle. Make no mistake—conferences don't come any IwHU-r-balanced Ihim the SoiithweM. At the end of any .seiis'in. if the champions and the cellariU-s were matcl.eil in a post-season i;nme. the outcome would be almost a tossup. How th'- learns will finish this .season, (.-oodne.v.s knows -the sports writers can't decide, and we certainly don't know! Tin.' forward pass, us usual, continues to play a .starring role in the Southwestern Knd drama. 'Hie passing game as a definite basis of attack, rather than meiely a change of pace from the nmniiu; jiamc. was dcvelo|<ed in this stclion anil reached its pea.k in the lemaikable tosses of SlinKinK Sam Ham.h of Texas Christian, now a pro- fe.'Monal ace with the Washington Redskin;;. Makes No Difference Wlu-n Vi, u I'ass To use the pass as an inlennil part of a football >y:,tem is sound busine'.s in the Southwest, where KOCH! weather throughout the season is the rule rather than the exception, and where boys throw bootballs and baseballs the year 'round. Good passers are far more numerous in this section than in the colder climes, where snow, rain and chillinf! wind.-, often preclude use of acrinl tactics. Dccau.su wood passing is so im- |>.u'lanl, Fred Thomsen's Arkansas team must IK' allowed a Hood chance- to 'do what no oilier them has even done—win two consecutive Southwest Conference championships. The K;i7orb;ick.s' crack passers, Jack Kobbins and Dwight Sloan, are back with their pitching arms in .good condition. And their favorite receivers, tall. rant;y ends Jim Benton and Kay Hamilton, aic auam on hand. The Ra/orhacks call themselves "the' pas: ini'.i'M team in the nation," and furnish thr.-e '.talistirv to prove it: 111 I'.K'ti they ].a.s.sed 2H2 times, completing lift for a total gain of 1H77 yards. Warning Note: Watch the Aggies! The Texas Aggies, our old team, have tine prospects under Homer Not tun. A heavy, fast line, including the All-America guard of '315, Joe Rolitt. operates in front of two sets of fleet, viT.salilc- backs. Foremost amonj.! them i.s Dick Tndd. who they tell us is one of the most dangerous brokenfield runners we will see in many a season. It was his Mellar work that went a long way in beating Manhattan at New York. Jimmy Kitl.s at Rice has a well- balanced learn, with experienced players or promising sophomores three deep ill every station, Hi.s most prominent o|x'ratives included Jim Nance, a .slashing end. and Hed Viekers, a crafty powerful tailback. The Owls appear definitely on the upgrade after falling into a lie with Texas for the cellar last year. The .second-place team last .season was Texa.s Christum. After losing Sam Ilaiigh. by all rights Dutch Meyer fchotild l>e indulging in a good o!<l- fashioned .-ession with the crying towel, hut after losing lo Ohio Stale in the opener pecked up by holding Arkan- Nas lo a 7-7 lie. Matty Hell's Southern Methodist team i.s in the nature of an u.\|K?n- mt'iit. as .several inexperienced players arc at key positions. Matty declares his team may he either very good or very had, and he can't guess which. Certainly the Mustangs should get great end play, if nothing else, Iroin towering Billy Wewell, 2(10- I.'ounder, and Keith Ran.spot. Murley Jennings at Baylor always manages to fashion a capable, trouble- tome football team from apparently average material. He had a great back last year, I/loyil Russell, but Lloyd returned only as an assistant coach. Billy Pattcison, hiilliunl passer and runner, replaces him. Jennings classes bum Boycl. a junior, us the best end he ever coached. Here ut Texa.s we found a number of speedy, capable backs and some big corujjeous linemen who possess defensive ability but are a bit shy on speed. --«»•«••• Pre-^Season Game for Homecoming EOZKMAN, Muni. ~i./7V- Montana State college claims a new record in l.umecumin.g football games.

Southern teams may not have the- sheer man-power that some of the mid- west and far western teams possess year in nnd year out. hut the brand of football is just as interesting. And this year is no exception. Anything is likely to happen, and usually does, when two southern teams net together. Not that we haven't hr-en holding our own with in- tei.seclion.il foe. 1 ;. !«.'causc we have, but snme southern rivalries have been of terrific intensity. The Duke-Tennessee game recently proved that, and it also proved that the Blue Devils and Vols can offer entertainment with the best of them. Strenuous Program for Hliu- IX'Vils Duke, which has been called the class of the Southern Conference, will have every opportunity to b" placed on a favorable comparison with eastern football by taking on Colgate and t'itt this year. The Blue Devils have a big line beaded by dipt. Woody Lipscomh, Kuard, and Dan Hill, center The backs are plentiful enough, nnd in El Hackney and Eric Tipton Duke has plenty of offensive threat. Offering the biggest challenge to Duke in the Southern Conference- is North Carolina. The Tarheels got off to a somewhat slinky start this year, but wnlc'h them in the ho-nc .stretch. Clem.sun did a gre.it job of holding Army In a 21-f> count and ,Ie.s.s Ncely will give .soint- more of the biy leain.s a lot of trouble before the- season draws to a close. Virginia Military, Davidson. South Carolina, and North Carolina Stale might well be placed on the Mime level, all of which means thai the race will lx> closer ihan ever Ihi.s yt>ar. Tlu- rest of the teani.s. Maryland, Kill-man, Virginia Tech. W. & L., The Cil.-idel. Iliclimoiul, Wake Fores!. William and Mary, and Virginia haven't indicated a whole lot thus far, but they'll be dangerous. Ali.vsis.sii!|ii State in Hit- Knuuing In the. stroni! Southeastern Conference Alabama and Tennessee appear to be the leain.s In beat. The C'romsoii Tide is fully as tough us it WH.S a year ago, are slightly stronger. sipi/i Slate continues to receive plenty of support from the experts, as dues Louisiana Slate, and a whole lot more than a hall game may be decided when the two meet on November G. On the outcome may depend a conference championship — and p.;r- bsips an invite, to the Rose Bowl. Georgia Tech is on the upgrade again and the Engineers' .sister school, Georgia. is tough. V.inderbilt and Tulanc arc strong f.nd Mississippi, Florida and Sewmiee can he expected to make the powers uneasy. That's the lineup as tit looks at present, but it's very likely to have assumed a far different aspect by December 1. Southern teams have a habit of dev< lopiiin in an umn.'.inr; fashion. That's wl y we don't like to --,iy so-and-so 'i'a^n't have •» chance. Everyone's in the swim until the bitter end down .south. Reddies Expect Victory Friday Will Play Monticello A. & M. at Arkadelphia Friday A'RKADELPmA/-Tlie Henderson State Teachers College football team will piny Arkansas A. & M. on Haygood Field here Friday. The Roddies will have an even chance for a victory. Henderson won at Monticello last reason, 7 to 0. Eugene Sherman, who formerly coached at Henderson, will be back on familiar ground in the role of opposing coach. Also opposing him will be Assistant Coach Duke Wells, one of the brightest if not the best of all Sherman's football pupils at Henderson in the hey-day of Reddie football. 'Ilie Reddies came out of their game with Tech in pretty good physical condition. Caplingcr with a cut lip was about the only casualty. He plays center. At the end of 193, r >, there were 10.891 posloffiees in Japan. l!00 for Pop Warner PHILADELPHIA—Templie's opening gome victory over Virginia Military took the form of a little present from the Owls to Pop Warner, when they presented the veteran coach with his 300th gridiron conquest. Running Plays Are Given to Porkers Arkansas Prepares for the Third Conference Tilt Saturday FAYETTEV1LLE, Ark. —HP)- The University of Arkansas Rarxirbacks drilled on running plays in a light workout Monday in preparation for their battle against the University of Tevos at Austin Saturday. Tied by Texas Christian University and defeated by Baylor, Arkansas was considered out of the running for the conference championship, upholding the Southwest tradition that a champion never repeats. Coach Fred C. Thomson and most of the team members voiced opinions Monday that two decisions in the Waco game'Saturday favored Baylor arid led to their victory. On the second touchdown, Center John Donaldson of Arkansas said he thought he had the forward progress of the ball stopped and the receiver downed when the Baylor player tossed a lateral that resulted in a score. Just before the winning Bear tally, Halfback Dwight Sloan said he was near a punt that was falling dead when a Baylor player pushed him on the ball. Sloan said even after the scramble he thought he had possession of the pigskin. Texas is expected to furnish Arkansas with plenty of trouble. Last season the Razorbacks defeated the Longhorns 6-0 to win the championship. Since then, Dana X. Bible has taken over the coaching job and will be facing his first conference opponent this week. Quarterback Jack Robbins received a slight leg injury in the Baylor tilt but is expected to be in good condition, for the Texas game. All of the other Razorbacks came out of the game in good shape.
