HOPE STAft, Wectnes(lay> October 18, (& •&' f* Routt Is Called ga One-Man "Riot" , '-Aggie All - America. Says .., Hfc Is Toughest Man in Texas The famed "thin red line" of the TfeXas Aggies is not so thin, judging fKitn the lengths and breadths of 53 players who reported to Coach Homer Norton when practice began. Totaling allttisl five tons, the football talent averages 181 pounds a man in weight 6ttd 5 feet H inches in height. ! than three of the five tons are KF fld Up in 34 linemen who total v*™) pounds, averageing 193 pounds a Matt. The average height is 6 feet. Roy Loting, all-southwest guard last season, takes the ribbon for weight, scaling 216 pounds. Young wears the htfgest shoes on the squad: 14 inches long and 7!s inches wide, they are tailor-made and cost the Aggie athletic association S40 a pair. Young is not at all proud of this distinction. Opposing linesmen will do well not to bring the matter up. "Roy is a senior, with two football letters already to his credit. He also earned varsity letters in track in 1935 and 1936, and held the intramura heavyweight boxing title in 1935. .Of course, the star of the Aggies' line Is Joe Routt, the school's first full- fledged all-America player. He is finishing his eligibility, having been ineligible in 1934. For a player who was unable to win his letter as a freshman ih 1933, he has done pretty well in climbing to the top of the stack of all- time, Aggie "greats." Southwest conference pritics began beating the all-America drums for Routt early last fall. Pacific Coast writers were greatly impressed by his playing, summing it up with "Routt •«ras a 'riot' at guard." Utah football ' scribes,declared the coast writers were too conservative alter having seen him in action against the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. A 60-minute player, the more he played the better Routt seemed to be. Rcutt laughingly describes himself as "the toughest man in Texas." That's taking in a lot of territory. But opponents are none too keen to seek a demonstration of his hardness. Mf s.JacM Dempsey Returns to Stage 0, U.'Monroe, at 64, SeesHisistGfidGame OTTAWA, Kas. — (/P) — Sixty-four- year-old D. U. Monroe saw his first football game find then remarked: "It's sbrtn like catchin' wild hogs. It reminds me of the time down on the farm when I roped n big calf. 1 threw a rope around its neck and it dragged me half a mile. Football Is rough, too." Monroe, filling station operator, "just didn't get around to going to ft game" until recently. .»»«» Ducks with biggest bills go after the smallest food—minute insects. 0/an Mrs. Dudley Dnuck, of Pharr, Texas, who has been visiting relatives in Mena, has returned to Ozan for an extended visit with her sister, Mrs. Chlora Citty.

Gibson Boy Makes Good . HANOVER, N. H.—Bob Gibson, son of'Billy Gibson, who managed Gene Tunney, is the first-string center of the Dartmouth football team. Broadway heard a familiar "Cheerful Little Earful" from the torch-singing former Hannah Williams (now Mrs. Jack Dempsey) when she decided, after four years' absence, to return to the footlights in a musical comedy with Ed Wynn. A nursemaid will care for their twc. young daughters, while Jack continues as a New York restaurateur. Alabama Without 200-Pound Regular Starting Lineup Is Lightest in Almost Fifteen Years TUSCALOOSA, Ala— (£V-Alabama's Red Elephants have gone streamline. For the first time in nearly 15 years there isn't a 200-pounder in the lineup which will face Tennessee at Knoxville Salurday in a game which may decide Dixie gridiron honors. A list of weights for this year's Crimson Tide shows a couple of the boys pushing 200 pretty closa, but no fire stringers quite make it. Here's the way the regular line stacks up before—not after—practice: Ends: Shoemaker, 174; Warren, 179; tackles: Tipton, 186; Ryba, 196; guards: Monsgy, 197; Bostick, 192. Not that Frank Thomas has a bunch of Singer midgets out there on Denny Field. You wouldn't call any of them anemic. And in reserve, Thomas has Walt Merrill, 215 pounds; Dutch King, 207; Bobby Woods, 205; Halwood Sanford, 204, and a few others, none of them exactly small. But to a school used to such behemoths as Clarke Pearce, 220 pounds; Fred Sington, 215; Foots Clements, 220; Charlie Marr, 225; Bill Lee, 222; and Joe Dildy, 205, over a span of years, anything short of 200 pounds sounds pretty smallish.

Earl (Dutch) Clark, the best back in professional football (he first rocketed to fame in 1929 when he was chosen quarterback on the Associated Press all-America;, has assumed his new duties as coach of the Detroit Lions and so far there has been no indication Clark will not be as outstanding a success as a coach as he was as a player. Clark is the only playing coach in the National professional football league but he does not believe the fact that he will be on the field of battle rather than on the bench will lessen his effectiveness as a coach, "After all," Clark says, "I won't be the first playing coach in professional football. My job is a snap compared to the one George Halas had a feu- years back when he played, coached and owned the Chicago Bears. "I'll concede that on the field one may mi.'.s a few things that would be apparent from the bench, but it should even up. I know 1 could sec things on the field last year that weren't evident on the bench. As fur a.-i substitutions go, we have worked that out already. Every man in the lineup will have a designated replacement befora the game. If I send a player lo the bench, his substitute should be on his •Any in before the player reaches the sidelines." Cl;:rk plans to play whenever he ti..nkb his j.-restnct will help the club. HANOVER, N.

FOR SWELL MAKINS THE TOBACCO THATiS .. *>• *> * * •*•» * LET'S LOOK AT THE RECORD! mil 3ai;-y. JOHN E. MILLER Membership on House committees of Irrigation and Reclamation, Insular affairs, Expenditures in the Executive Department, Claims and Elections, and the highly important committee of the Judiciary. He is now a member of the Judiciary Committee and a sub-committee chairman. Except for the late Senator T. H. Caraway, Mr. Miller is the only Arkansas Representative ever to be named to this important committee. A staunch advocate of the policies of the present Democratic Administration, proved by his votes and valuable committee service. His official votes accord him the third highest ranking Congressman in the Nation on surveys designated as "For The People and Against The People." Colleagues of Congressman Miller Have the Following to Say About Him: Congressman Ben Cravens: "I have had the pleasure of servinu in Con- gres* with John E. Miller for the past five yearn, and I do not know of a man in Congress more highly regarded by his colleagues. He, has builded for himself a record of constructive legislation for which Arkansas and he entire South may justly be proud, and you may search that record with the closest scrutiny and you 'Will not find a tingle act that will reflect other than credit and honor upon himself his district and state. His congressional experience, his sound common sense, his studiou* disposition and industry combine to make him a most acceptable candidate for the United States Senate. "The statement that he is an anti-Roosevelt Democrat is too ridiculous to even justify a denial, but it is indeed strange, that after my five years of service with him that now is the first time I have ever heard this charge laid at his door. "The people of this State are intelligent, and if there had been a member of the Arkansas delegation, either in the House or Senate, classed as an anti-Roosevelt Democrat, this fact would have been advertised throughout the length and breadth o} tins land through that part of the public press opposed to the President's program. Congressman D. D. Terry: "In the coming election for the Senate, I am going to vote joi John E Miller. The fundamental issue involved is whether the people of Arkansas shall be permitted to select their ^Senators or whether that right shall be taken away from them." Congressman William J. Driver: "/ am ready to lay down mu commission, if necessary, to protect the rights of the citizens of this State, I am ready to defend tins position to the very life in me." "I have worked side, Inj side with John Miller. I never be-jore witnessed a man develop as fast as he did. He has not polled a aingle vote for which he is ashamed. He has a record of every cote cast, and I challenge criticism of that wonderful record he has made in Congress," Mrs. JoeT. Robinson: •'Congressman Miller has always co-operated with bc.nator fiohi'nson in legislation affecting the welfare of Arkansas. As a Democrat interested in the future of our State, 1 expect to cast mij vote for John K. Miller for United States Senator on October 18."

Democratic State Committee." July, 1936 "In Arkansas a pernicious sijslem IMS arisen which allows the Democratic State Committee in effect to appoint men to offices when vacancies occur. Such a practice is thoroughly un-Democratic. The people arc deprived of their right to select their own officials. Carl Bailey, a man of action, will put an end to these nominations by political manipulators." August, 1936— "Carl Bailey is the. only candidate who has promised the people that he will let them select their own elective officials when vacancies occur." September, 1936—"/ recognize-, as people hare long insisted, that no power is rightfully vested in any other than the people, of this State to fill vacancies in public office. The governor, and none other, can protect this most sacred right of the people. As your governor, I will zealously guard this right for you." February, 1937-*—"/ sincerely hope that local party committees will not take such action as will deprive the. people of an opportunity to vote in a special primary," April, 1937 "Stale lines and parly regularity belong to the. ox-cart days." October, 1937— "There never has been, and there, never can be, a special primary in Arkansas to select a Democratic nominee for the United States Senate," The Arkansas Gazette says: "There is not u Democratic voter in Arkansas who does not know that an Independent is a person who bolts the results of a party primary or WHO REFUSES TO TAKE HIS CHANCES IN A TARTY PRIMARY." Carl E. Bailcij has refused to take his chances in a party primary! '\ FLASH—Congressman John McClellan endorsed John E. Miller at Pine Blwf f Monday in a memorable speech. CONGRESSMAN JOHN E.
