With startling i regularity, "underdogs" have upset i highly-favored elevens. No one ean i predict safely which way n football is I Koing to bounce. I A top-heavy favorite in the prc- pnme selections. Minnesota wa.s humbled by Nebraska. Cornell, after downing Colgate and Princeton by lopsided i scores, fell before Syracuse, a team | thai few thought had a chance to score. Louisiana State, .rated one of the i .strongest teams in Ihe South on its ; early performances, was downed by a ! fighting Vanderbilt eleven. That's the way it goes on all fronts. It is generally conceded that, on n muddy gridiron, most teams are equals. A number of outstanding upsets have j cccurred on wet fields this fall, just | as they do each season. The defeat a despised Brown eleven (Dartmouth and Harvard had smothered the Bruins i handed Columbia was a striking example, although it did appear that Coach Lou Little's Lions expected the Brown boys to roll over and play dead. Only Sid Luckman of Columbia was not engulfed in the letdown that followed an easy triumph over Pennsylvania. Dr. Mai Stevens, coach of New York University, told of an incident that pretty well sized up the situation. His 8-year-old son expressed a desire to see his father's team in action, but stipulated that he wanted to be sure that N. Y. U. would win. The coach, feeling confident lhat his boys would defeat Lafayette, gave the boy a lickel for the conlest. After Lafayette had trounced the Violet eleven, Dr. Slevens had to go home and face Ihe youngster. "Your learn was awful," Ihe pride and joy of the Stevens household said to his daddy. "And you ain't much of a picker, either." "About all I could say to him at the Yerger Team Will ; Battle Prescott .. if Negro Football Game to Be Played in Hope at 3 p. m, Thursday The Yerger High School football team will play the Prescott Black! Wovles at Yerger Athletic park in Hope at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon. It will be the second game for Hope, having dropped the opener to TeXai*- kana several weeks ago. The Hdpe Tigers are reported (o be ligol but scrappy. Little is known here of the Prescott team. The Hope lineup will be Fuller, right end; Kountz, right tackle; G. Green, right guard; Walker, center; Calvin, left guard; Carrigarv left tackle; Johnson, left end; Carson, quarterback; Poindexter, right half; Frison. left half, and W. Green, fullback. Dizzy Dean Acquires „ Gas Station in Florida ERADENTON, Fla. — W— Jerortle Herman (Dizzy) Dean, St. Louis Cards pitcher, Tuesday realized a week-lortg, but once thwarted ambition — to owii a filling station, in this, his winter home. The deal was concluded toda'y whereby he took over the lease otia downtown establishment. He ' took possession immediately. * • His first act was to change the name to "The Dizzy Dean Service Station, and to assume personal management.?

Their improvemeut since the season opened has been marvelous and looking ahead Henderson folks see a .strong tejin for HARRY SCHNOOR (that's the smiling' gentleman standing mi tho stepladder) has a knack for rolling his own, and he's handy with tools, too. This photo of Hurry, taken while he was doing' a little repair work around the house, shows him with some ('Hi-nils who have dropped in. Present company, reading' from left to right, is Leonard Lee and Paul Ilodg'os, who are joining' in with Hurry's praise of Prince Albert "makin's" tobacco. Below you can see wluit tliey say about this popular favorite of roll-your-owncrs. PRINCE ALBERT JUST NATURALLY SNUGGLES POWN IN THE PAPER FOR EASV ROLLING/ S, AND RA, SMOKES SO MILD AMD MELLOW, VET TASTES SO RICH. IT'S SOME TOBACCO/ P AUL goes on: "It took just one'makin's' cigarette rolled with Prince Albert to make me a P. A, rooter for life. Imagine a tobacco that smokes so mild and mellow, yet tastes so rich and full-bodied! And it lays exactly right for fast, neat rolling—no spilling, blowing around, or bunching. And then Prince Albert draws so good, and burns so slow and cool—and stays lit too." P. A, rolls, draws, and burns so smooth because of the special way the tobacco's cut— "crimp cut," it's called. Another thing—Prince Albert is "no-bite" treated, which, as Paul says, assures an extra-mild yet tasty, full- bodied smoke. (P. A,-means real joy in any man's pipe too.) HERE'S THE FAIR AND SQUARE OFFER PAUL'S TALKIN' ABOUT: Roll yourself 30 «well cigarettes from Prince Albert. If you don't find them the finest, tastieat roll-your-owncigarettev you ever smoked, return the pocket tin \vtth the rest of the tobacco in it to us r.t any time within a month from this date ( and we will refund full purchase price, plui po«tage, (Signed) R.

WHAM Co "BESIDES buiiiK so easy to mil," Leonard I.i'i 1 (above) adds, "I'riiuv Allic-i t is .I!M) a very mild and ta.sly 'm.-ikiii's' tobacco. It's Rut full, Miti>l'.vintf body—without har>hin^.- It burns slow and coi.il. too, and it sure 1 is mellow." HARRY SCHNOOR (above) is certainly going to enjoy that Prince Albert "jiiakin's" smoke. And no wonder, for, as Harry puts it: "That Print-e Albert crimp cut sure was made to order i'or iill of, us 'makin's' smokers,"
