Vanderbilt's Trick Play Wasn't an Accident- -But Does Look Like One Ground Gainers Are Frequently Stumbled Upon— Commodores' Freak Play Recalls Others That Were Used Successfully By HARRY GRAYSON F|inrlH Kclitor, NBA Service Some of the more useful plays in football were stumbled upon accidentally. The most widely discussed play of the year was conceived by Ray Morrison of Vnnderbilt. but looks like an accident, and scarcely will be incorporated in the Commodores' or the system of any other coach. It served its purpose, however. It beat Louisiana Slate in an upset, 7-fi. Describing Vanderbilt's hidden ball trick, you run the risk of being warned to quit drinking the stuff before you go blind. The diagram looks like u map of Boston. There have been several explanations, but motion pictures show thnt this is what happened before thousands of pairs of astounded eyes as Vander- l)ilt shaded Louisiana State by shaking i a tackle, Ricket.sun, loose for a 50-yard touchdown run in Ihe first five min- j asleep, ulos of play. But the Quarterback Reinschrnidt deftly took Simmons of Liberty. Dropping back to toss n forward pass, the pigskin fell from his hand just as he brought it back. For solnc inexplicable reason, a teammate was racing around behind him ns he cocked his arm. Me caught the ball as it fell from the would-be passer's hand and continued wide around end for n substantial gain. Quick Lineup Still Good They're still working the quick lineup, too. In Hardin-Simmons' engagement with Loyola of Los Angeles, the ball went out of bounds, and the referee brought it in. The Hardin-Simmons players sauntered to their positions slowly. The Cowboy center stooped down and apparently started tying his shoe laces. But instead he passed the ball back to a baekficld man who latcraled to another back who passed down field for a touchdown. 'Tlie play caught the Lions fast PASS SNATCHER rado College, with Denver .shooting for its fifth win in six starts against Wyoming. Being on top these day.--, in brief, is like playinp follow-llie-lcnder in front of tt firing squad. Ouachita to Meet Louisiana Team Game Will Feature Armistice Day Program Thursday at Arkadelphia ARKADELPHIA, Ark - i/Ti-Oiuu-h- ita Collfi'if will meet the strong Louisiana College eleven from Pincville on the gridiron here Thursday afternoon in the feature event of an Armistice Day program. The Arkadelphia American Legion post, arranging the celebration, announced Monday that the local national guard company and HOTC unit* from Ouachita and Henderson State Teachers College would cooperate. The Tigei.s are greatly improved this season but expect trouble from Ihe Louisiana team which scored I we touchdowns on the powerful Centenary Gentlemen of Shreveport. the ball from center, placed it on the ground between the legs of Hays, a guard, and faked out to the left as if he had the ball. Ricketson dropped back and fell on the ground as though he were down. Then, with the Tigers' dcfen.se sucked to its right. Ricketson got up slowly, picked up the ball, and scampered to the touchdown behind three linemen Now you tell one. Spinning (he Spinner As related in the foregoing, many of our deceptive plays were born by sheer accident, most notable of which are the spinner and the dust-covered Staltic of Liberty, more familiarly known us the Michigan "83." Dyke Bet-do. Carnegie Tech back, stumbled upon the spinner in 1B2.1. Taking the hall from center, he spun around to band it to another back who was .supposed to come across. The other back wasn't there, and when Beedt-'s momentum -spun him around again he saw a gaping hole in front of him and shot right down the middle. One of the late Dan McCiugin'.s backs officials, told by the Hardin- coach before the game that the Cowboys were going to pull the play, saw nothing illegal about it. The Cowboys had seven men on the line of scrimmage when the ball was snapped back. Loyola pulled the same trick on Saint Mary's a week later. Trick plays are great when the element of surprise is there, or when you catch the other side asleep. Few go as a steady diet, but like the spinner, some of them serve to improve offensive football in general.

New Conference Is Talked by Teachers Formation of Grid League for Teachers' Colleges Proposed CONWAY, Ark.—</P)-Formn1ion of an eight-state athletic conference of colleges for teachers to increase interest in sports was proposed Monday by The Echo, Arkansas State Ttachei-K College student publication. It .suggested for membership Arkansas Slate Teachers and Henderson Slate Teachers in Arkansas and similar institutions at Cleveland, Mia 1 !., Tnhlcrjuah, Edmoncl and Durant, Okla., Memphis, Tenn., Cape Girardcau and Springfield, Mo., Natchitoches, La., Murray. Ky., and Commerce. Texas. "It may be objected that there would be no way to determine the state hampionship of the new conference were formed," the student newspaper vairl. "It has ben pointed out that there is no way to definitely determine that at present. "It may be pointed out that out- nf-slnle teain.s do not draw the crowds that state teams draw. The objection would he largely overcome in u conference because out-of-state games would have a bearing on the title, whereas now they have no bearing on anything. "Teachers college football has gen* erally been at a low ebb and less rec- i.gnized in sport circles than any other type of football. We believe this is r-ecBUso it has been in the past merely the appendage of football in other in- ftilutions. Separate it into another conference of its own and we believe the prestige of our football team would be greatly improved." Henderson Conch Doubtful ARKADELPHIA, Ark.— Iff*)— Coach L-ilon Suddeth of Henderson Slate Teachers College here expressed doubt Monday night that a proposed eight- sUite athletic conference of teachers' colleges would be feasible. Suddeth said the schools mentioned (or the conference were widely separated and that travel expense might be prohibitive. He doubted whether sufficient interest would be aroused. He said the plan had many advantages but the drawbacks appeared to out- wcight them. THIS MR. MEEK ISN'T Long a Lowly Sub, He Now Is Football Hero PHILADELPHIA — (NEA) — The story of Walter Daly, now first string fullback of the University of Pennsylvania, is a living study of perseverance. All last season Daly performed with the third and fourth teams. He 'iil on the bench when a great Quaker outfit was playing its games. Others dropped out discouraged, but he came out every day. Daly kept at it this fall, but was n fourth-string substitute until the Georgetown game of October 23, when the Penn injured list was a yard long. Daly arrived all at once and showed Harvey Harman blocking and bull- carrying that led to his starting the Navy game. The young man's varsity debut was a triumph. Among other things, he climaxed an 80-yard Pennsylvania drive by scoring the first touchdown in the upset. COACH SfrB ALLISON F CAUF6HNIA CALLS- 200-POUND AKrf#8AC 1HB BEST Marshals and Outlaws Vote Sheriff Smith of Oklahoma All-America End Sooner Wingman Has Been Outstanding in All Games Played by the Oklahoma University Grid Team This Season By HARRY GRAYSON Sporfs Editor, NEA Service Sheriff Pete Smith, a flame-throw- in' man-stopper from 'way down in the redlands of Oklahoma, is in line this fall for a big wad of All-America reward money. Because Smith, an Oklahoma senior end standing 6 feet 2 and weighing 190 pounds, always gets his man. If necessary, he gets three or four blockers and his man. Ask Morris White, Tul.sa's great little desperado whom none of the rough police officers of Texas Christian, Rice, or Arkansas has been able to subdue for two seasons. Sheriff Pete and his efficient 195-pound deputy, Wacldy Young, the Soonors' other end, put White behind the bars. Although White, who is as slippery as calf slobbers, tried all his dodges, he gained only 28 yards while losing 34. Twice when he tried to sweep the Sheriff's end. Smith expertly rode the crest of Tulsa bloclters, pushed three noses into the dirt, and survived to put the handcuffs on Morris two chalk stripes behind the line of scrimmage, Smith also tore through to block the try for the point after tlie first Tulsa touchdown. He ripped through to cover a Tulsa fumble that set up an Oklahoma touchdown two plays later. Sheriff Smith isn't just a defensive wingman.

BALL GOES To A\ORTOH, WHO SP/NS FAK£S ~K>' MltM£%:lf/£H FOLLOWS BOOTH By ART KRENZ NEA Service Sports Writer Louisiana State's spin play to the weak side was used successfully against Florida, Texas, Rice, Mississippi and Vunderbilt, even though the Commodores defeated the Tigers in a 7-G upset. Ball goes to Morton, who spins half | way around, and fakes to Milner, coming across behind him. Instead of completing the spin, Morton follows Booth through the hole opened between the dcfeiisive weak side tackle and guard. Important blocking is done by the faking Milner, who bumps the defensive right end before going down into the secondary; the fight guard who pulls out, and Rohm, the tail back, who swings wide and goes down field to work on someone else in the secondary. over Rice, he leaped high in the zone to catch the touchdown pass J.-ick Baer. With Rice on Oklahoma's seven late in the final period, Coach Tom Sfitf* hum sent Sheriff Smith, who had been storing up fuel on the bench, back' ih to quell the riot. On the first play, Fete swooped down on Tov Victors like 40 hen hawks on a settin" dUall, dropping him for a nine-yard deficit That's real sheHffing. Sheriff Pete's third warrant calfed for the arrest of several slick baft- toting hombres from the University o£ Texas. As usual, the-sheriff was W a sodpawin' mood. He hot only capfufed and broke up the entire gang, but also fielded the longest Oklahoma fdfWfird pass of the day and ran 34 yards before the last man between him and thfe goal drove him out of botirids. Sheriff Smith's finest work ^dS 1 ' against the Cornhuskers on the Same Nebraska field where two ' Weeks earlier Maj. Biff Jones' then had beaten Minnesota. Oklahoma tied the surprised Buskers in the mud, 0-0. More* over, the play-by-play showed that Oklahoma had the ball in Nebraska territory exactly 13 times while the Huskers never got inside the Oklahba ma 40. How many football team* can say that they kept a Nebraska teaftl outside of its 40 all afternoon? After the skirmish, Johnny Howell, Nebraska's senior quarterback and a pretty touch . bandit himself, Said: "Smith is the toughest end I ever tried to crack, tougher than any Minnesota or Pitt end." And Howell has played against the Golden Gophers three autumns and opposed the Panthers twice. He takes into consideration that one of Pitt's finest players is an eMd,' Bill Daddio. Little wonder that out in the south- ivest, Sheriff Pete Smith is the chbice of both the marshals and outlaws .for All-America end. In every start this year he's been as hot as a burnt boot. He's a Yank Now ..LOS Angeles—Ambrose Schindler, Southern California quarterback, is the son of a British naval officer. "MAKIN'S" TOBACCO BATS HIGH WITH LOCAL SMOKERS!
