They tell me that the Nashville fc'frapper.s are coiiiinn to Hope Friday night with the t'X|«Ttiitii'ii.s of upsetting the Bobcats. The Scrappers have not won a game from Mope since the season of 1934, having been defeated by a score of HI to G in 1935 and 31 (o (i in 19»1. 'Coach Lester Bradley and his men have not forgotten last year's sting of defeat—and a victory for them would considerably add to their prestige. The Bobcats are due for a slight letdown after romping over the big Jonesboro team last week. At this lime it is extremely doubtful whether Vasco Bright will see action. Bright suffered an ankle injury in the Jonesboro game, forcing him to use a walkmi: cane. With Bright out of the game, the Bobcat offen.se will be considerably weakened. J, B. (Ears) Whitworth, Louisiana State's chief scout, i.s getting his flying togs out of the moth balls again. Wbitworlh, formerly a star guard at Alabama, flew more than 15.000 miles while scouting the Tigers' foes in the la.si two seasons. He is piloted by Dean ,1. P. Frame of the School of Aeronautics, who flies the University of Louisiana-owned monoplane. Members of the 18'.l. r > football team of Mississippi Slate—first team to represent that college and loser of all its games—'have been invited to attend tbe home-coming game at Stale College Octol>er 2!i with the University of Florida. American football is just GO years old this season. Although the game was born with ibe adoption of a cixle known at the time as the concessionary rules.

A glance at the Arkansas High School Conference schedule shows thai Pine Bluff, with four wins, has only to meel El Dorado. Hot Springs, North Little Rock and Little Rock. After Little Rock lakes on Fort Smith Ibis week, Tiger conference foes arc Jone.sboro, Pine Bluff, Kordyce and North Little Rock. Little Rock's Tigers do not play Blytheville.

I renllzn that every one has u different iden ns to what is mi'tint by ni7.- /.lc-dnzzlc. My conception of it is u lot jf littoral pusses, more forward pusses, ;>nrtieulnrly deep in u loam's own lerri- lory, and mnny tricks that .once didn't come under the heading of orthodox und sound footbnll. The lutcrnl pass i.s one of the most effective offensive weapons that hns dime into the garni- on u largo .scale in econt years, it carries a touchdown threat anytime that it is used in the open field—with perfect ball-handling, of course. I feel positive that most conches will lot handle it. However. I believe that t will bo used more intelligently than ever before and that coaches will spend nuch more time improving the timing mil accuracy of the passes. If a lateral pass is tried at the |wy- chological moment, which means when a ball carrier is ubout to be tackled and his forward progress slopped, it frequently i.s good for many additional yards and quite often a touchdown. Passing Deep in Own Territory Had Business If throwing forward passes deep in one's own territory i.s considered part of Ihe mxzlc-tlii/zle, then I say that we won't see much of that form of it. Such dangerous tactics are attempted only in the southwest. Elsewhere certain beaten squads will in the late stages throw passes recklessly, but they arc the exceptions. I don't give Minnesota players any specific instruction as to where or when not to throw laterals. I merely tell them to be on the alert for opportunities afforded by perfect setups for laterals. We overdid the use of this play when we were edged by Northwestern last fall, but it was because the boys tried so hard lo comedown behind in the last quarter and took many chances. H's tbe same old way to success in football. First a team must have a sound running attack, which i.s UK- backbone of the offense. A learn must be proficient at handling forward passes, and must possess defensive qualities. The ra7.7.1c-dnz7.le is just a side issue that must be handled intelligently. As a mailer of fact this great college game hasn't changed much throughout a long period of years. Look back through history and you'll find that champions of every conference were soundly schooled in the same rudiments.

October 12, li vastly tougher than formerly. Officials have to make many more hair-line decisions and frequently are under fire. They must decide whether the forward progress- of the carrier was slopped when he passed the ball backward. They must watch closely that n lateral docs nol develop into a forward us is often charged when a touchdown in a close game results from such a play. But the lateral mnkc.s the game more thrilling for spectators and rewards players who not only are alert for opportunities, but who become proficient at handling the pigskin. The lateral isn't new. It was used when I was in high school, but it did not become popular until its employment was made a deal safer by tbe rule change that made the ball dead al the point where it was fumbled. It was only when laterals are used too promiscuously that teams get into barrels of trouble. Lliu'niiMi Neglect lilncking in Hope of Taking a f'ass There are three types of laterals, down field, and those employed after receiving a kickoff, punt, or pass. Linemen often are loo anxious to hang around ba'ck of the carrier in hope of taking a lateral instead of being ahead of him to do effective blocking. Players who bungle lateral passes frequently are those who dislike to be tackled and who do not think very much on the field. Hence, I believe that you'll see as much lateral pawing as ever, but with HE PRACTICES WHAT HE PREACHES California Gets {Bobcats Prepai 1 ! Top Grid Ranking f or Game FriAjfJ M. T.
