We get this information from Coach Foy Hammons. "Reese played the best gnmc of his entire career at Blytheville Inst week. He stopped them cold on the righl side of the line and frequently went through to throw the Blytheville ball- carriers for losses," Hammons said.

Woodson of Arkansas Stale Teachers declared impracticable Tuesday a proposed eight-state athletic conference of colleges for teachers. The Echo, State Teachers student publication, proposed formation of such a league to include colleges in Arkansas. Louisiana, Mississippi, Tcrt- icssce, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. "It won't work—it's to impracticable" isserted oodson. He joined Coach Solon Sudduth of Henderson State Teachers in the belief that such a conference would work financial hardship on widely sparaled schools. Such nn organization, said Woodson, also would mean his Teachers would have to quit playing Arkansas Tech which he considers stronger than any team suggested for membership in the conference. Colonel H. L. McAlister, president of the State Teacher College also asserted the conference proposal had no merit punted, but wind blew the ball buck into Collonwood creek. Both teams dove in. A Sooner halfback got the ball, touched it down on the bank. It counted in lliosc days. Notre Dame played Southern California in the lastgame of a Knule Rocknc football team.

NEW YORK.-f/r 1 )—Pittsburgh's Panthers will be protecting a new honor when they meet Nebraska Saturday in a major intersectional duel. For the expected crowd of 70,000 will see, in it, 'the team that has displaced California as national leader in the latest Associated Press ranking poll. The combination of the unbeaten, once-tied Panthers' drubbing of Notre Dame and California's tie with Wash- ingston lifted Jock Sutherland's team out in front by 509>/-> points to 449. Pitt won 31% of the 55 first-place votes in this week's survey. The half- vole came from a ballot on which the first-place award was split between Pitt and Fordham, the team which deadlocked the Rose Bowl champions and, on the strength of its own rout of Purdue, moved from tenth to fourth place in Die balloting. • Between California, which was tops for three weeks, and Fordham is Alabama, which drew 13 firsts to the coast team's nine but did not win as much general support. As a result the southerners skidded out of the runner-up position. The 50 per cent proportion that finds two eastern elevens in this week's top four is carried out through the resi of the first ten. Dartmouth and Yale, fifth and sixth, and Villanova, ninth, are the other sectional representatives to gain the experts' backing.

Russellville Has Lost Only 1 Tilt Games With Goodlaiitf, . Okla., and Dallas Are Scheduled Coach Foy Mammons will serffl his Eobcat football team to the practice field Wednesday afternoon for the first time this week in preparation for 'he homecoming conference game here Friday night against the Russeliville High School Cyclones. For the past two days the team has been kept inside because of rain. Blackboard sessions were held In the high school gymnasium in which Coach Hammons explained new formations to be used in the Russellville tilt. The Crimson Cyclones Use a short punt formation offense and resort quite frequently to the aerial game. The team, coached by the veteran Wallace Bailey, has been defeated but once this year, dropping an early- season battle to Forrest City in the, closing minutes of play. The Russellville team has bowled over Ozark, Paris, DeQueen, Clarksville, El Dorado, Benton, and Beebe by impressive scores. The Cyclones boast about the best fullback in the state in J. Keeton, 175-pound hard- running back. Salmon, quarterback, is a fast stepper and very elusive. The two other backs are Batson, 180-pound right half,' and Parker, 160-pound left half. The Russellville team has two large tackles in Minor 197, and Gilbert, 185. Staggs and D. Prangle are starters at guard positions and each weighs 175 pounds. Thompson at center weighs 180. Coach Foy Hammons said he expected all his men to be in shape with' the exception of Aslin and Bright. It is doubtful whether either will see action. Bright is suffering with an ankle injury and Aslin sustained, an injury to his shoulder in the Blytheville game. Tickets will go on sale Friday morning at Hope Confectionery and Jacks Newsstand. The homecoming queen and her maids of honor will be announced as soon as they are selected by the student body. Hammons announced Wednesday that he had signed contracts to bring the Goodland, Okla., team here for a game November 19, and S't. Joseph High School of Dallas here Thanksgiving day. The Dallas game will be played in the afternoon, starting at 2:30 o'clock. Season tickets will be good, the coach said, It costs the United States govern nent an average of $80.55 per capita in deporting aliens.
