Freeman wtui brilliant and at one time got loose and ncnrly went over for n touchdown.

Denr Bobcat Booster: We were forced to omit thnt "mon- nicker" you hung on Stone because we were unable to find the word in Webster's. We suggest "Fearless Freeman" instead. Reviewing Ohio Slate's setback by the Southern California Trojans two weeks njjo, which was due to missing two points after touchdown. Coach Francis Schmidt traced the pass play which accounted for the 'I rojans' second score. Schmidt, who once coiicheM at the University of Arkansas, asked each Buckeye player what he had done on the play. Each player had a ready answer. Schmidt, who could terrify a battalion of Japanese, walked uw.-iy shaking his head, wheeled, and shouted to his pUiyors: "I don't understand it. The Trojans couldn't have scored. They were all flat on the ground." NO PROPHET-ALL LOSS They (oil me that Wood row Parsons, who several weeks-ago was shifted from n halfback post to a guard position on the Bobcat team, really likes the middle of the line better, despite the fact D.at ball carriers usually "hog" the publicity and make the headlines. Parsons, they say. likes it rough and tough nnri delights in playing a guard position. That's co-operation and team spirit for you, and another reason that the Bobcats click as a team unit. In Parsons and Captain G. V. Keith, the Bobcats Ixmst a set of guards as good if not better than any in the state. If you intend to ride the Bobcat Special to Camden Friday night telephone thu high school, number 167, immediately in order thnt the Athletic Committee will know approximately how many train coaches to order. By telephoning the school you do not "guarantee" that you will ride the train—but telephone to give the officials some idea as to the number of fans who intend to sec the Bobcat- Panther game from Hope. Extra train coaches may have to be ordered out of St. Louis and that takes time. Officials must know now. Roundtrip fare is only $1.32. The train will leave the Missouri Pacific depot between 4:30 and 5 o'clock Friday, arriving at Camden two hours later. The train will leave Camden about 10:45 p. m. and will arrive back in Ho|x> about 12:45 a. in. Saturday. Hugh Carson, former Bobcat center, was a visitor in Hope over the weekend. Carson is now enrolled in Texas Slate Teachers college. Zelon Holly, another former Bobcat center now making good at the University of Arkansas, saw the Hopo- Nashville game Friday night from the press box. Holly has returned to the University. Three Blytheville scouts also saw the Hope-Nashvillu game from the press box Friday night. They were Assistant Coach Beard, a Mr. Galloway and a Mr. Batcher. They also signified their intentions of witnessing the Hupo-Camden game Fridny at Camden. What they thought of the Bobcats? They didn't say. That's a secret of .scouting. However, it has been suggested that when Hope plays Blytheville it would be a good u|ua to have number 22's on Aslin and Masters as well a.s Vasco Bright.

Decision to file the application was reached at a meeting of members of the school board and a special committee representing the athletic club. The application bearing the signature if C. M. Buck, School Board president, was filed by C. G. Redman, chairman of the Athletic club committee. Tentative plans for the stadium call for seating facilities for 3,000 persons, dressing rooms and showers and a band room, but plans may be revised to provide for a gymnasium.

He .said they would be joined by Jerry Walker of the Detroit Tigers. Hudlin reported to police Monday the loss of $75 worth of fishing tackle, stolen from his automobile. He said it was the first time he had ever neglected to lock his car. Hudlin winters here.

Wear and See Red and Let 'Em Know Who and Where You Are When Hunting Here Are Some Good Pointers That May Prevent You From Shooting Some One Or May Prevent Some One From Shooting You By NEA Service If you feel called upon to climb a tree while hunting, rehearse your college yell as you climb. A hunter got lost in Minnesota. He climbed a tree to look over the country when along came an old trapper who peppered him with buckshot, mistaking him for a bear. When you are close to a dead deer, sing or whistle nt brief intervals. An Ontario guide posted his client on a deer runway. The sportsman killed n buck and was in the act of hanging it up when the guide ap- r.i'oached. The guide, seeing the deer but not the hunter, shot and wounded his customer. Wearing red affords real protection. But the outfit should be chosen so that it has no flaws. A red jacket and brown or pray pants is a highly dangerous costume. Any touch of white should be avoided because white suggests the flag or tail of a bounding deer. Two bullets went through the trousers of John Painter of Detroit, just below the knee. One glazed his leg. O professional guide opened fire at the white top of Painter's socks, projecting above his boots. A white nanoKcrcnief or white cotton gloves are distinctly bad style for wilderness wear. Hunters repeatedly are cautioned not lo shoot until they plainly see a deer. The fallacy of that advice is demonstrated by the fact that practically every nimrod who accidentally HIKING HITCHCOCK Alternate CapUiin Billy Hitchcock flics any lime his Auburn teammates place him in the secondary. A brother oC Jimmy Hitchcock, Orange and Blue backfleld coach and All-America of 1832, Halfback Billy probably is the south's best returner of punts. Billy led the Tigers in hitting the lust two seasons, and will sign when h shoots another says, "But I could see n deer plainly when I aimed." "Old woodsmen frely ndmit that when they arc close to game there are times when optical illusion presents the imogc of a mild animal where there isn't any," explains Fred Jordan, main m?;n in the General Wildlife Federation's national and intensive roundup of conservation activities. How to avoid shooting n fellow hunter, or getting shot yourself, is being given scientific study in big game .states. A number of tragic shootings have been caused by hunters crawling on himds mid knees through thick brush or getting down on all fours to drink from a creek. Wearing bright red doesn't materially affect a hunter's chance of getting a shot. It often has been demonstrated that deer have poor eyesight. ' A deer will walk straight up to n hunter clad in flaming scarlet, provided the wind doesn't carry the scent of a man, and-the hunter stands perfectly still. Movement is what catches a deer's attention, not color. But be sure before you shoot. Conservation by Use, Forest Creed Selective Cutting Today Permits Perpetual Supply of Timber By RUSSELL STADELMAN District Forester, Magnolia On the National Forests the practice of forestry has been developed. In the early stages of forest practice, conservation mt-ant the setting aside of certain acres of forest land from any use other than the esthetic. However, today the creed of the Nationiil Forests is "conservation through use," Through selective cutting, these forests shall perpetually furnish a supply of wood products. They shall never be cut-out, since only the growth is removed in each cutting cycle. Many are the large lumber companies today who are setting up a plan for a sustained yield, and changing their operations to mesh in with these plans. Technical foresters have been employed by many companies 10 set u psuch management plans. The placing for a forest on a sustained yield basis means the dependence on present immature trees for future cutting cycles. This means that the forst floor is fully utilized, and also fully protected. Thus, the need for protection of this young growth becomes evident. This means fire protection. Immature trees are fatally injured after a severe fire. If dependence is mode on pules and saplings for future sawiogs and pulpwood, then they must be protected through the growing period. Fire destroys not only trees but also the jobs which would develop in the cutting and marketing of these trees. The Arkansas State Forestry Commission secures hearty co-operation from woodlond owners in forest protection work. Under the Cole-Crutchfield Forest Fire law the following acts are misdemeanors—"Building a camp fire upon lands, not one's own, without clearing the ground immediately around it free from material which will carry fire, or leaving thereon a camp fire, to spread tl^rpn or by Schedule Too Easy Say& Grid Player Ambitious Marshall Gold* berg. Doesn't Like Breather Games By JOCK SUIWRLAM) ^ Pittsburgh's Head Coach PITTSBURGH—Everybody wmrts to know more about Marshal) Goldberg, Pittsburgh's remarkable junior and one of the finest backs I have ever seen. Goldberg is a football player's foot* ball player. He is first on the practice field, add he doesn't loaf while he's there. Noted chiefly as n ball carrier, Goldberg also is an accomplished quick-kicker, passer, and Mocker. He kicked with his left foot and passed with his left arm when ho reported at Pittsburgh, but since has learned to do both from the other side. Goldberg is called "Biggie" because he wa.i so small when he went out for high school football in hi5 sophomore your. He weighed only 110 pounds, He scaled 185 pounds on his 19th birthday, October 25. The University of Pittsburgh was not only the choice of Marshall, but of his family as well. Goldberg learned to block in college. His high school coach wasn't concerned about Marshall's blo'cking. All he cared about was having his young luminary get his hands on the ball and running. Elklns' Time Was Young Gold berg's in Rose Bowl Most people agree that Pittsburgh schedules are tough, but Goldberg believes thnt they should be harder. He reasons that lie could play more then. He figures that he plays too little in games in which he really could run up yardage and scores. His ideal card would be Notre Dame, ArinyJ.nNavy, Southern California, MinnesofciiFord- ham, Nebraska, and Washington. Goldberg has it all, including durability. He has been knocked out only once—last season, and he ran 45 yards to a touchdown on the next playi Pitt hopes Goldberg keeps up this year's pace insofar as his first play is ccncerncd. Against West Virginia Wesleyan he intercepted a pass for his first play and ran 55 yards to a touchdown. Against West Virginia he carried the opening kick-off back 78 yards. He ran 77 ynrds to a touchdown the first time lie got his hands on the ball in the Duquesne engagement. Goldberg comes from Elkins, in central West Virginia. Marshall still is a country boy and a good West Virginian at heart. In the heat of our Rose Bowl battle with Washington at Pasadena last New Year's Day, a substitute came into the Pitt lineup, and Goldberg asked him the time. "A quarter past three," said the substitute, looking up at the clock. "Let's see?" replied Goldberg. "That makes it a quarter after six in Elkins." Aflcr-Diuner Speaking Comes With Stardom Marshall's father, who takes in every game that it is possible for him to> see, owns the principal moving picture theater in Elkins. The family is very well to do. There are four brothers, one a high school star this fall. Two older brothers are employed by the father. Marshall also formerly helped his dad, who right now occasionally has to go clown the street to Elkins' other movie to see his son in newsreels. It always is open house at Goldbergs, because the boys were supposed to learn to get along with people and to do things people did out in the \vcrld under proper conditions. Marshall Goldberg himself says thnt he doesn't care to be rich, and doesn't expect to be. He hopes only to make a comfortable living. He doesn't believe in working during the summer until he is through playing football. He swims, plays tennis, golfs and goes to the movies. He is not a ladies' man. Like his brothers throwing away a lighted cigar; match, cigarette, or by theuse of firearms or in any other manner starting a fire in forest material not his own and leaving the same unextinguished." <tt THE MIGHTY HUNTER Boston Bees Nam Stengel Matiagi No Terms Are Announ ed Will Succe Ham B.

BEATTY AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON.—Shut your eyes on the international din of the moment, turn back the clock twenty-odd years, and you glimpse Woodrow Wilson trying to assert America's rights in the community of nations without taking sides in a war. Everybody knows now'that he failed in that effort, and America moved inevitably into the world conflict. But the same broad question, that faced Wilson in 1914 faces Roosevelt today: How can America remain at peace? Nobody can answer that question, of course, but there are similarities and diferences in the world situation in 1914 and in 1937 that will help Roosevelt chart a course for the United States. Today the big powers of the world are rapidly rearming themselves with new and terrible machines of war, just as they were in 1914. In those days the nations were just beginning to practice with the comparatively new machine-gun, airplane, zeppelin. and submarine. Today they're experimenting with refined samples' of the same things — "flying fortresses," "pocket battleships," and "motorized armies." Stage Differently Set And then, as now the President was forced to divert his attention frequently from the domestic political scene— a scene in which he preferred to operate. Wilson preached the "new freedom;" Roosevelt upholds the "New Deal." 'In 1934, tile Balkan war was freshly recorded on the pages of liist'ory—a sinister prelude of what was to come. What can be said today of the conquest of Ethiopia, the Spanish Civil war, and the Sino-Japanese warfare in tile Orient? Again nobody knows the answer. As a matter of fact, when we ask that question we come to the end of possible similarities between turbulent 1914 and equally disturbed 1937. The common props on the international stage of 1914 were imperial governments, the delicate balance of power between the central powers and the entente of Europe, the "open door" in China, the Monroe doctrine in the Americas, and so on, much as it was in Queen Victoria's era. But the war changed all that. Now we have a League of Nations. We have the labels of communism, fascism, and democracy to mark off blocs of world powers, and there's no delicate balance of power between them, merely vague hostility and distrust. We have a train of post-war treaties committing the influential policies of peace. And yet some of the signers of those treaties are actually at war without so much as breaking off formal relations with each other or formally declaring hostilities. And where does this confused situation leave President Roosevelt in his announced desire to fashion an American foreign policy with peace as its keystone? *<< Jl Treaties Broken First of all • Roosevelt was;6t' Wif- •; son's cabinet as an assistant secretail^ '> of the navy. He says himself that y£"< learned in Wilson's troubled day sdme of the things to'do, arid other^lhingS \. "not to do." „, tf 1 He knows: ffc * 1.
