PAGEStX HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, November 3, 1037 _ Alma Mater Gives AH for Her Boys -When They Fall in Her Defense texas A. &'M. Has Annual Allotment of $1,000 for Hospitalization and Treatment of Injured Grid Heroes By The AP Feature Cervicc COLLEGE STATION, Texas.-Nothing is too good for the modern college player out "doing and dying" for okl Alma Mammy. He gets the best hospital beds, the best leg splints, the beSt-lookimj nurses. At 1'exas A. & M- home of one of the southwest's strongest teams, the annual budget carries a ?1,000 allotment for hospitalization and treatment of injured grid heroes—exclusive of the trainer's salary or expenses of the team physician. Also allotted is about $400 for training room items, chief of COTTON LOANS QUICK SERVICE IMMEDIATE PAYMENT TOM KINSER Hope, Arkansas which is adhesive tape. Last year Dick Todd, the Aggies' potential all-America halfback, received a whack on the head in the Southern Methodist game. He spent days in the hospital. The $250 bill was passed as a routine matter through athletic office records. A knee operation, which may bob up every few years or so, may cost as much as $500. It is figured as an obligation of the college to the player. It isn't the major injuries that plague a football team, however. The Aggies have had only one broken bone in three years. It's the injuries that keep a player out of a game or so and break up the team spirit that keep Trainer Lil Dimmitt and Dr. R. Henry Harrison, tea mphysician. constantly alert. The Aggies left the field after their 1937 game with Mississippi State with a 14-0 victory and with nine first- stringers on the casualty list. All nine were ready for Texas Christian the following week-end. But it took dally trips to doctors, osteopaths and anyone else Trainer Dimmitt could find. Knees and ankles are most frequently hurt, with many shoulder ailments, also. Colds, boils, bruised muscles, pinched nerves and cuts of all types stand high on the routine list. Athlete's foot is frequent and no misnomer in a grid camp. Dimmitt's big job is not to treat injuries but to prevent them. Aggie football players weigh before and after every practice. The weight chart is an excellent health barometer. Aside from his regular playing equipment, which includes protective devices galore, each Aggie goas to his daily workout with his ankles securely wrapped either with cloth binding or adhesive tape. He usually wears about nine yards of 2-inch tape on his ankles on game day. On tho field Dimmitt keeps his "hit and run" bag ready for service. His kit and Dr. Harrison's black bag have just about everything needed for a major operation but an operating table. There is even a portable X-ray machine on the sidelines. Obtained from the most dangerous viper in India, viper venom now is being used to stop excessive bleeding after operations.

Y.—Sandlot football games won't groom 11-year-old Tommy for that coveted all-America halfback position. In fact. Tommy's ability to play the game will probably be ruined if he charges around with the gang after school in unsuperviscd football prac- tice. And what's more, says Paul Sullivan, head coach at Erasmus high .school here, Tommy is more than likely to break his nose or sprain his collar bone on the .sandlot. He'd be far safer in an intercollegiate football game. Major portion of football injuries occur in unsuperviscd play, says Sullivan. Tommy and his friends don't have the proper equipment, such as guards and helmets. A football, they think, is enough. So they batter it around and batter themselves in the process. Coach Sullivan points to Bostcln as an example of what can be done in supervised city playground work. "Look at the star collegiate football players Boston has turned out," he says. Physical Exams "That's because Boston has a park system, with a former nil-America football player in charge of recreational work. If the boys want to play football, there's nn instructor to teach and supervise them." Physical examinations before the football season are extremely important, Sullivan feels. Every Erasmus football prospect has a thorough going- over before he climbs into his uni- form. And if he makes the team, weekly check-ups are the rule. Farm Boys Best In his years of sifting four varsity teams from the Krasmus enrollment of 4,000 boys, Sullivan has discovered that city boys don't make- as good football players as the farmhands of Minnesota. They haven't the same school spirit—that's the reason. "It's every man for himself here in New ork," says the coach, "and the boys pick up that doctrine very quickly. They want to win, yes, but they haven't the same enthusiasm you sec in small-town football games." Sullivan calls football "a swell dis- Logs, Blocks and Bolts We arc in tin- nmrkel for White Oak.
